Watch and Pray Against Deception

parable-of-the-sower 2

As we approach the ending of the ‘end-time’ experience, I want to remind you of a biblical law that is still in effect. It is the Law of Sowing and Reaping. It says whatever you sow, that you will reap. Scripture says –

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” – Gal. 6:7-9

Paul is writing this warning to Christians! They also have to watch what they sow. Jesus said it in a different way –

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ – Matt. 7:21-23

Notice, Jesus even includes those who are religious, who are doing what most Christians call ‘revival‘, prophesying in His name, casting out demons in His name, and calling Him Lord! But Jesus accused them of being ‘lawless’ because they did not do the will of the Father in heaven. Paul warns about the last days and the work of the ‘lawless one’ –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

The spirit of the lawless one is full of “all unrighteous deception“, so it is easy to be deceived. Our only protection is to be led by the Holy Spirit and the truth of God’s word. We have to love the truth radically and to judge all events by the truth of God’s word. The work of the lawless one is becoming so blatant now that it is easy to identify it, especially in the church. Now even Satanism is being celebrated in some churches as this link will show. Churches and ministries that allow homosexual participation without

calling it sin or even ordain them as ministers are also easy to recognize. Churches that are preaching there are more ways to God than Jesus, such as those preaching Chrislam, are also easy to recognize. But the churches that are warping their doctrines to fit the modern culture, not preaching against divorce, abortion, or women preachers, are not so easy to detect. They take the false path of saying God’s word must align with the culture instead of the culture must align with God’s word! They may be prophesying or casting out demons, but they are lawless!

The term lawless one means one who sets himself above the law of God. God gave His law for all mankind to observe to Moses on Mt. Horeb. We call it the Ten Commandments. They are regulations that will allow mankind to live in peace and harmony and obey God. They apply to each individual, each church, and each government. Jesus summed them up by saying –

Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” – Matt. 22:37-40

Jesus said He did not come to destroy this law but, to fulfill it. He sent the Holy Spirit upon His Church to continue fulfilling it and the last outreach of God to the earth will also be to send the prophet Elijah back to earth saying “Remember the Law of Moses My servant” (Mal. 4:4).

new wineskinsI believe God will send a “latter rain” to complete His final harvest of the earth but there is another Law that Jesus told about wineskins.

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.” – Mar. 2:22

In other words, don’t try to try to have revival by using methods used in the past, the old wineskins. The Holy Spirit demands new wineskins or old wineskins that have gone through soaking in the water of the word, endured the pounding and stretching as oil is massaged into them, so they can once again be pliable and won’t burst when the new wine begins to expand. I have witnessed so-called revivals today where ministers are praying for people that fall down under the spirit, so they say, but I also watched the minister push them with his hand and I think ‘old wineskin’. If the Holy Spirit wants to ‘slay someone in the Spirit’ He doesn’t need a man to push them!

We desperately need a new move of the Holy Spirit but, we don’t need one manufactured by man, so I urge you to pray for the true and watch for the deception that so easily comes.

Prepare for Coming Judgement

winter 2014_01As I look out my window, I see the first snow fall and I think “Where has the time gone?(Actually, we didn’t get as much snow as the picture shows!)

The midterm elections are only weeks away and fast approaching. The TV is inundated with political ads for this candidate or that one, each revealing facts that may be true or may not be true. One never knows because the media has long ago stopped believing in the 10 Commandments, of which the 9th says, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”.

But I’m glad we have a faithful witness from our God, who never lies but always tells the truth, even though it may be hard to take at times! From the beginning of creation God placed His truth as a faithful witness in the sky above man.

“It shall be established forever like the moon, even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah – Psalm 89:37

We know that the sign given in Revelation 12 received much attention in 2017, but it also began the countdown to another sign which may have disastrous implications for the world – the sign of Taurus, the Bull. When the planet Jupiter (the King Planet) leaves the womb of Virgo, it begins a seven-year journey to Taurus, where it meets the planet Mars in the horns of Taurus. The Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which taurus_mars_jupitermeans the coming Judge. Mars, in Hebrew, is the red one or the Son of Man. Held within Taurus is a star cluster known as the Pleiades, which means the Congregation. So, the meaning of this constellation is “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth”.

This meeting of Jupiter and Mars in the horns of Taurus will occur August 13, 2024, which is the 9th of Av, the Jewish date of disaster when both of the Temples were destroyed. The time between when Jupiter left Virgo to August 13, 2024, is exactly 7 years. The obvious meaning is a clear warning of the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It also is a warning of the soon coming of tribulation.

I have also referred to the important signs of Blood Red Moons which the Lord began to show in 2011 and again in 2014-2015 in a Blood Red Moon Tetrad happening on Passover and Tabernacles. But now another Blood Red Moon has appeared on November 18-19, BRM in Taurus Nov 18 20212021 and it is appearing in the Constellation Taurus. This eclipse is part of an “almost tetrad”—a series of four big lunar eclipses in two years. Three of these eclipses are total, while the November 18-19, 2021, is a deep partial eclipse. So deep that it is almost a total eclipse.

To better explain the full meaning of this I want to play a video done by one of my Grandsons, Stephen Cooley –

Remember, Jupiter will meet Mars between the Horns of Taurus August 13, 2024. That’s only about 2 years away now and God is giving us Warning of coming judgement with another Blood Red Moon. The sign of Virgo presented the idea that the Tribulation would soon be on us and this sign in Taurus tells us of the coming judgement of the Lord on sin.

We know that mankind is under the influence of the spirit of the lawless one and is easily deceived just as the Apostle Paul wrote –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Minneapolis Rioters WinWhy do you think we are being hit with so many false narrative’s right now? BLM (Black Lives Matter) releasing looting and burning across the land, blackmailing corporations into giving them millions of dollars which they use to buy million-dollar homes for themselves; CRT (Critical Race Theory) creating American disunity throughout colleges and public schools; Defund the Police and anti-gun movements which are pro-criminal in nature; Transgenderism secretly being taught to our children without parental consent; ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) philosophies being pushed by government, media, banking, corporations, and environmental climate control groups (even though there is no truth in their philosophy); and finally a government that wants to destroy our energy production with a false narrative of ‘Green Energy’ which doesn’t exist and will result in the death of millions of people world-wide and the weakening of the United States of America to the status of a Third World Nation!

The answer is the spirit of the ‘lawless one’ has been released in our country. Its specialty is deception, and it empowers those who operate outside the law of God. A faithful God has shown us in the heavens what is about to happen. He is coming to Judge all this wickedness but in the midst of this judgement it will be as the prophet Malachi said –

“But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves” – Mal. 4:2

God is going to send the spirit of Elijah to heal our families. And how will he do this? By reminding us of the 10 Commandments of God –

“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.” – Mal. 4:4

Returning to these commandments will cure all the false narratives the enemy has pushed upon us. But all need to prepare for lawlessness to be displayed throughout the land. You will see it between nations, and you will see it between ethnic groups as well as governmental moves. Remember God told Isaiah that “gross darkness would cover the people” but in the midst of this, the righteous will receive light and shine with the glory of the Lord (Isa. 60:1-3).

Be blessed as you prepare.

Hearing the Truth in this Hour

shofar-2Jesus came to earth the first time to bring the truth. He said “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” (Matt. 5″17). Jesus also said when He left, He would send the Holy Spirit to us to “And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment” (John 16:8). The prophets also speak of this message from the Lord. The end-times prophet Malachi says

“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:4-6

The Law which God gave Moses of course was the Ten Commandments which speak of righteousness, sin, and judgement which God expects from His people. He knew many would forsake the Ten Commandments as a moral code. Jesus said they would be “committing adultery, stealing, lying, and killing: and because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”10-commandments – (Hosea 4:2 and Matthew 24:12). The phrase lawlessness means ‘without law’ and refers to the Ten Commandments, which are God’s law for human relationships. They are also the definition for true love because God is love! A whole paper could be written on this alone; social, religious, governmental lawlessness. In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled that the 10 Commandments could not be displayed in schools and it has been a downward slide ever since!

Ever since then, lawlessness has been on the increase in our country, until now it threatens the very fabric of society – the family. We need to see lawlessness as an evil spirit that has been released on us because of our wicked choices. It is preparing the way for the Antichrist! Paul wrote –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Jesus carries the crossAt the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry He spoke to His disciples to prepare them for His dying on the cross –

“Nevertheless, I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.” – John 16:7-11

He first promised to send them the Helper, the Holy Spirit. He said “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.”  That happened 50 days after His resurrection on Pentecost as the Holy Spirit fell on the believers. Jesus said the Holy Spirit would guide them into all truth and He would glorify Jesus. Sometime before Jesus had said this to His disciples –

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:6

The Holy Spirit is so precious. He is the guide that reveals the truth to us, not some political guru spouting socialistic lies. The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus, who alone is the truth. How sad that many, if not most, churches today relegate the Holy Spirit to a minor part of the church service. Instead of allowing the Holy Spirit to lead their worship, they relegate Him to a man-made liturgy which the people, like automatons, mouth without any real belief. Or they enjoy the sounds of some Hill Song type band and call that worship. Where is the freshness and new life that the Holy Spirit brings? Most church services are as drab as the ecclesiastical robes the preachers wear.

communionOh, they may remember to take Communion once a month with no thought as to what the bread represents or to what the wine represents.

The bread represents His body that was broken for us but, it also represents us, who are the body God prepared for Christ.

“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me.” – Heb. 10:5

We are to continue the work Jesus began. That is why He sent the Holy Spirit to us. Not to take a little bread and then go out and continue to live as we did before, caught up in the world and not in Christ.

The wine represents His blood that was shed for our sin, that we would stop sinning! There is life in that blood, and it can enable us to overcome the sin that so easily besets us.

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” – Lev. 17:11

We are told in Scripture to do this communion as often as we come together.

“In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” – 1 Cor. 11:25

Passover 2018

The Blood Bought Covenant

This is to remind us of the Covenant between us and God that Jesus ratified by His sacrifice. Sadly, most churches do not take it every time they come together, or the Catholic Church forgets the wine altogether only giving it to the priests. What about the people? But they do remember to take an offering every time they meet! What does this say about what is important to them?

Most of the big churches are ‘seeker friendly’ where only good messages are preached, nothing that would drive sinners away. So, the message of repentance from sin and the reality of Hell is avoided. The love of God is emphasized but not His severity.

“Therefore, consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.” – Rom. 11:22

It is possible for those who once knew God to be “cut off” and “blotted out of the Book of Life”.

“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” – Rev. 3:5

There are ‘dead churches’ out there that have names as being alive, such as the Church of Sardis in Revelation. They are preaching a humanistic gospel based on man’s wisdom not on God’s. They are preaching a ‘feel good’ message and have lively worship services. They may even have signs and wonders happening. They often are using ‘professional’ preachers and worship leaders that don’t know Jesus.

Then there are churches that do a lot of things right but, they have left “their first love”, such as the Church of Ephesus in Revelation. Jesus said He was sending the Holy Spirit and He would convict the world of sin because they did not believe in Jesus. They have been caught up in the “bigness” movement doing whatever causes growth in numbers. They are ministering to the people and not to God. They forget that one of the first things the Holy Spirit does is to glorify Jesus.

Drag Queen Teaches in Church

There are churches that are sold out to the world, allowing all the sexual deviants into the church. They forget that another work of the Holy Spirit is to convict the world of righteousness because Jesus has gone to the Father who is seated in righteousness. Nothing unholy or unrighteous is allowed before Him.

judgement day

Judgment Day

And many churches are not teaching about the soon return of Jesus. He is coming as the Judge of all. Satan was judged as Jesus died on the cross as payment for our sin. Satan’s kingdom and all those who surrender to him are going to be judged when Jesus returns. Also, when Jesus returns, He is going to send forth His angels to separate the tares from the wheat in His Church. That involves judgement! You may think your sins are hidden but, God sees them, and the Holy Spirit exposes them.

It is the reason why Paul writes –

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; “– Phil. 2:12

Oh, that the Holy Spirit would send us prophets that would point out our sins. Oh, that the fear of the Lord would once more come into our hearts and our churches. Oh, that our church services would once more be about Jesus and not ourselves. Come Holy Spirit and cleanse us that we may be prepared to meet Jesus, our Bridegroom.

pilgrimsAmerica began as men dedicated themselves and their families to God and to preaching the message of the Kingdom of God. Our Constitution, while not perfect, came closer than any other government on earth to following the prescription of heaven to govern mankind. God’s message was first to the families, next to the churches, and finally to the government. That will be the final message that God sends to earth by His prophet Elijah as turns the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children back to the fathers with the message contained in the Ten Commandments.

A Time to Give Thanks

This may seem like a strange time to give thanks as one turmoil after another is rocking our countries and societies. It must have seemed that way also for the Israelites as they left the bondage of Egypt. Even though there was bondage, it was all many of them had known and there is a way one can become used to the trials of life until you forget the freedom that was once yours. There was a way they could be comfortable with the “fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic” of Egypt. But God was calling them to a higher level. He was calling them to remember the Creation and what they had been created for – freedom! He was calling them home.


Song by Micah Cooley of Day of Eternity

The message of this song is God is inviting each of us to come home like the prodigal son, there is a place for us at God’s Table.

We are once again approaching the time to remember what God created us for – Thanksgiving.  Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.” How fortunate to be adopted by a Father who cares about every detail of our lives – a perfect father who never abandons us or fails us. His restrictions in our lives are always for our protection and good. Oh, how He is to be honored and His name hallowed. As you consider all the world’s kingdoms, there are none perfect, only some less bad than others but, His kingdom is perfect in every aspect. Any wise people would want to model their governments on His as much as humanly possible. He knows our past, present, and future and He knows how to overcome the chief enemy of our souls, Satan, and He loves us! Who in their right mind wouldn’t want One with such ability to show us His will for us daily?

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving remember that we should be thankful every day for God’s abundant goodness and favor bestowed on us daily.


(The Song of Job, written by Israel Cooley and sung by Day of Eternity)

It would be good to remember what the Holy Scripture have to say about Thanksgiving and what blessings we have been given in America.

learning the truth

“If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.” – Leviticus 7:12

The month of Thanksgiving is approaching. Thanksgiving is a time for reflection on the testing and blessings of our lives. Yes, even trials and testing are to be given thanks for because they serve to make us stronger than we were before. And blessings because they are a sign of God’s goodness to us. Sadly, most of us receive these blessings without so much as a thank you. And we often take them for granted, that is until they are taken away.

But thanksgiving is so important for our well-being that God even gave a special offering for it called the “sacrifice of Thanksgiving”. It was to be given with unleavened cakes mingled with oil. The cakes represent bread which is the staff of life and later Jesus who is the ‘bread of life’. In other words, all the things that work on our behalf to bring forth life. These cakes were to be ‘unleavened’ which means not tainted by sin that corrupts and destroys the life intended. This sacrifice is later referred to in the New Testament in the Lord’s Supper where Paul writes –

“For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner (in sin) eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” – 1 Cor. 11:29

Then the cakes were also to be mingled with oil, which represented the Holy Spirit. It was the Holy Spirit that Jesus sent to be with us when He rose into the heavens. The Holy Spirit is to be our teacher and He alone can lead us to repentance. He is the One who will prepare us to be ready to meet the Lord when He returns. He makes the difference between the five foolish bridesmaids and the five wise bridesmaids (Matt. 25:1-12).

A key truth in this thought is – being thankful prepares you for the Holy Spirit to work in your life. Un thankfulness hinders His work. Also, in this sacrifice wafers of fine flour mingled with oil are used. On this point, I will let you seek out God’s hidden message in this sacrifice –

  1. How does flour become ‘fine’ flower?
  2. Why wafers and not loaves?

The answer can be found in this Psalm – “For His anger (testing) is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” – Psalm 30:5

Thanksgiving is a time for family and friendships. I pray that this Thanksgiving you will give thanks for God’s goodness to you. Remember, you don’t have to have a big turkey meal to give thanks – Paul and Silas were bound in prison, and they gave thanks and God opened the prison for them!

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains were loosed.” – Acts 16:25,26

thansgivingAnd last but certainly not least, Thanksgiving is a time for family. God speaks about marriage and the family in this way –

“But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore, take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth. “For the LORD God of Israel says That He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence,” says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore, take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.” – Mal. 2:15-16

One of the last things God will do before the final Day of the Lord is to send the prophet Elijah and his message will be to re-unite the family.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5-6

In the beginning God created the family and He still cares about it. So, celebrate this Thanksgiving by gathering with family and friends to give thanks to God from whom all blessing come and enjoy one another’s fellowship.

Things About to Happen – part 2 update

Jesus warned of “birth pangs” that would announce His second coming.

“But when you hear of wars and commotions (riots and revaluations), do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:9-11

Laying aside all the current political upheavals, wars and rumors of wars, I want to concentrate on the earthquakes, famines, and pestilences now occurring. Watch this revealing video by The Two Preachers which highlights just a few of these things now happening –

There is no doubt about the world-wide increase of major earthquakes as the USGS statistics show.

USGS Worldwide Deadly & Destructive Earthquakes

USGS graph of Major Earthquakes in the Past Century

And these earthquakes also result in tsunamis and flooding and other strange weather patterns. In fact there is an entire zone of earthquakes now active, it is called the Ring of Fire and it encloses the Pacific Ocean. The scientist Dutchsinse has gained renown predicting the next earthquake or related volcano to erupt around this Ring and he is predicting a New Large M7.5 Earthquake with possible Tsunami threat! 2nd this week! But, I think it is curious that it is called the Ring of Fire, as outbreaks of wildfires are breaking out around the globe. Again the Two Preachers have it on video –

The end times prophet Malachi speaks of this in his last chapter –

“For behold, the day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Mal. 4:1

Unfortunately, judgments such as these often catch the righteous as well as the unrighteous unawares. It is why Jesus warned us to “watch and pray” and why the Apostle Paul warned the Thessalonians –

“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.” – 1 Thes. 5:1-6

I believe these are the next birth pangs that Jesus predicted, and they are now coming closer together and with more intensity. It is time to seek the Lord like never before. Remember the last warning in the Bible –

“He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” – Rev. 22:11

In other words, ‘He who is righteous, be more righteous and he who is holy, be more holy’.

Update:

Fires have not abated. In the U.S. the National Interagency Fire Center reported –

“Currently 66 large fires and complexes have burned 438,364 acres. Six new large fires were reported, three in California and one each in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. More than 15,000 wildland fire personnel are assigned to incidents across the country. Six Type 1 incident management teams (IMTs) and 15 Type 2 IMTs are working on large fires in the Northwest, Southern California, Great Basin, and Northern California areas.”

This year’s statistics are from 1/1/22 to 9/07/22 there have been 49,193 fires that burned 6,311,144 Acres of land.

Israel365 News posted an article titled 2021 ON TRACK TO BECOME RECORD-BREAKING YEAR OF MAJOR EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANOES and in it they stated, “Volcano-EruptingIn the first 65 days of this year, 42 major quakes, magnitude 6 or higher, have shaken the planet.” which is a record. But earthquakes are not the only thing to increase – volcanoes as well are on the increase. Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna in Sicily, erupted seven times in the past two weeks. A large eruption started at Sangay volcano, Ecuador on Saturday. An earthquake swarm shook Mount Hood, a potentially active stratovolcano near Portland, Oregon for 45 minutes last week, raising concerns that the volcano was beginning to awake. Mount Sinabung in Indonesia’s North Sumatra province began erupting last Tuesday, sending volcanic materials as high as 16,400 feet into the sky with authorities recording 13 times when it released ash clouds. Three weeks ago, Fuego volcano, located 50 kilometers away from the capital city of Guatemala, started to erupt. As of yesterday, 43 volcanoes around were erupting or showing signs of activity.

Earthquakes and volcanoes are well known to be harbingers of God’s wrath on the nations and Rabbis teach that earthquakes and volcanoes are being referred to by Ezekiel and Jeremiah.

“and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.” – Ezek. 38:20

“But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.” – Jer. 10:10

Earthquakes and volcanoes are clear signs of the approaching end days. Why is God so upset with us? You might ask. The prophet Ezekiel has the answer.

“But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.” – Ezek. 18:24

Our nation has done good in the past and we have been righteous before the LORD, but we have turned away from that. In what way you might ask?

“Therefore, I also gave them up to statutes that were not good, and judgments by which they could not live; and I pronounced them unclean because of their ritual gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire, that I might make them desolate and that they might know that I am the LORD.”’ – Ezek. 20:25-26

In other words, when a nation turns to abortion, which is a ritual in Baal worship, we were pronounced ‘unclean’ by God as a nation. Charisma News wrote this article on the subject –

altar of Baal“The reproductions of the 50-foot arch that stood at the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, that will be erected in New York City and London next month will only be the first of many. As you will see below, it turns out that there are plans to put arches in hundreds more cities all over the globe. The organization behind this is the Institute of Digital Archaeology, which is a joint venture between Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubai’s Museum of the Future. The initial arches from the Temple of Baal that will be erected in New York and London as part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Week in April are intended “as a gesture of defiance“, but ultimately the plan is to share this “cultural treasure” with as many cities around the planet as possible.”

One of the chief acts done at the altar of Baal was child sacrifice, which is what abortion is – child sacrifice for the convenience of the parent! So, one might ask, “How is this a cultural treasure?” 

Wake up America before it is too late!

My next article will update Things About to Happen – part 3.

Christ’s Freedom must be All Inclusive

The Apostle Paul wrote “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” (Gal. 5:1).

There is no doubt that the yoke Paul was referring to was that of sin but, it also included much more. It also included freedom from manmade religious doctrines that are contrary to the word of God. It also includes governmental doctrines and actions that are contrary to the will of God. Our Founding Fathers understood it to mean governmental actions that impeded on this God given liberty as well. President James Monroe wrote “I will now add what I do not like. First, the omission of a bill of rights, providing clearly, and without the aid of sophism, for freedom of religion, freedom of the press, protection against standing armies, restriction of monopolies, the eternal and unremitting force of the habeas corpus laws, and trials by jury, in all matters of fact triable by the law of the land, and not by the laws of nations.” He also echoed President Thomas Jefferson in his stand against our nation maintaining a standing army.

james monroe on standing armies

Nations can gather armies in the event of war but that is not the same as maintaining a standing army. And yet that is what we see happening in the United States right now. An article in Epoch Times August 23, 2022, titled America’s Standing Army has this quote –

“The IRS has stockpiled 4,500 guns and 5 million rounds of ammunition in recent years, including 621 shotguns, 539 long-barrel rifles, and 15 submachine guns, according to the in-depth report “The Militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies.

The article goes on to list all the governmental agencies that have stockpiled weapons and ammunition and concludes with –

“Mind you, this de facto standing army of bureaucratic, administrative, nonmilitary, paper-pushing, nontraditional law enforcement agencies may look and act like the military, but they aren’t the military.

Rather, they’re foot soldiers of the police state’s standing army, and they’re growing in number at an alarming rate.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the number of federal agents armed with guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment, authorized to make arrests, and trained in military tactics has nearly tripled over the past several decades.

There are now more bureaucratic (nonmilitary) government agents armed with weapons than there are U.S. Marines. As Forbes reports, “The federal government has become one never-ending gun show.”

This nonmilitary army is being used to stifle freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and it is partnering with social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to put a clamp on free speech and dissent.

Paul asked the Galatians, “Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” American Christians are in danger of swallowing the little leaven that leavens the whole lump as they sit by and watch the Biden Administration hire 87,000 more IRS agents armed with weapons. American pastors, who are commissioned by God to be His spokesmen for the truth, should be sharing this truth posted by the Epoch Times article –

polie in riot gear“While Americans have to jump through an increasing number of hoops in order to own a gun, federal agencies have been placing orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of hollow-point bullets and military gear. Among the agencies being supplied with night vision equipment, body armor, hollow point bullets, shotguns, drones, assault rifles, and liquid propane gas cannons are the Smithsonian, U.S. Mint, HHS, IRS, Food and Drug Administration, Small Business Administration, SSA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Education Department, Energy Department, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and an assortment of public universities.

Add in the Biden administration’s plans to grow the nation’s police forces by 100,000 more cops and to swell the ranks of the IRS by 87,000 new employees (some of whom will have arrest and firearm authority), and you’ve got a nation in the throes of martial law.”

Why do these agencies need all this military equipment unless it is to force unconstitutional edicts upon us? Surely lawlessness has not become so bad as to warrant these extreme governmental reactions. America has enjoyed the freedom given to us by God in response to the prayers and confessions of God-fearing Pilgrims, Puritans, and founders. They fought to maintain these freedoms for us, and we must also join the fight to preserve the freedoms given to us.

The ultimate source of our freedom is Jesus Christ and the Word of God. But we must embrace them and live them out and that means in our hearts, our fellowships, our society, and our government. The freedom of Christ must be all inclusive.

War in the Heavens, coming to Earth!

web pictures 146We are witnessing war in the heavens right now. Scripture says the nations and the kings of the earth (great leaders) plot and take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed saying Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords (that bind) from us”. From the time God said, “Let us make man in Our image”, Satan has been at war with mankind because he is at war with God. As we approach the end of time, Satan is moving with great vengeance against any in mankind that honor and cling to God. The last great nation on his list is the United States. It was founded in prayer and by those seeking God on earth, the Pilgrims and the Puritans. And through its history, although there have been ups and downs, it has stood for God and His Biblical principles. When Elijah complained to God that he was the last prophet remaining alive, God replied, “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”  so there have always been a remnant in America that remained true to God. Their confession has echoed that of King David –

“The LORD is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works. The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The LORD preserves all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.” – Psalm 145:17-20

the purgeIt would be good for all of us to listen to these words more closely: ‘The LORD is near to all . . . who call upon Him in truth.’ Paul wrote that the coming of the Lawless one would be with “lying wonders” and we are certainly witnessing the work of the lawless one among us. Everything the current Whitehouse utters to the public is a lie. There is no truth in most government organizations such as the FBI and the DOJ, whose leadership is filled with wicked people. Most of our colleges have given way to the lies of the LGBTQIA+ crowd and now even the public education schools are teaching the lies of CRT (Critical Race Theory). And there is certainly no truth in most of our so-called news media which has become nothing more than a propaganda machine for the ‘lawless one’. Social media has been taken over by those espousing doctrines of the ‘lawless one’.

One-World-Religion-ChrislamBut what is far worse is the succumbing of the American Church to these same lies. The Church was intended to proclaim God’s truth to the nations but all too often today’s churches are proclaiming a message crafted to attract people of the world and leave them in the condition in which they were found! Many churches today propagate the false teaching of evolution, or they put up with it by their silence. Many have embraced the homosexual lifestyle, and some have even appointed homosexual preachers and bishops to stand in the pulpit. Many have appointed women to be pastors when the word of God strictly forbids it. I recently listened to a Black Pastor from New York who was expelled from the American Baptist Church for saying the Barrack Obama was not a black man (because he has a white mother) and for saying that the homosexual lifestyle is unbiblical! Some churches are even proclaiming Jesus is not the only way to God! It is called the doctrine of Chrislam. Muslims and Jews are said to have their own way to God.

The last book of the Old Testament which speaks about the end times, explains what the priesthood (pastors) should be modeled after and that is Levi of the Old Testament. God says of Levi that “he feared Me and was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips.” The law of truth was in his mouth means he didn’t speak lies and he proclaimed God’s truth to his people and to the nation. He wasn’t after pleasing the people, white washing their sins but he proclaimed God’s truth! God says a pastor is “the messenger of the LORD of hosts!” He is not a hireling of the people, or his denominational headquarters! And injustice was not found on his lips means that a pastor is to speak against every injustice he sees and do it from the pulpit. That means every pastor in today’s churches ought to be speaking against the Democrat Party for their stand on abortion, Critical Race Theory, LGBTQIA+ lifestyle, and many in the Republican Party as well!

The Psalmist also wrote that God would fulfill the desire of those who fear Him. The fear of the Lord is not a subject talked about much in the modern church but, the Leader of our faith had much to say about it.

“And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!” – Luke 12:4-5

The Apostle’s Doctrine, in which all the early church was instructed also says much about the fear of the Lord. Peter wrote –

“And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Peter 1:17-19

Jesus warned us about hell and Peter warns us that we will all face judgement and our works will be examined! This knowledge should cause all of us the join King David in praying –

“Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, for in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You. . .. Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God, Your Spirit if good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.” – Psalm 143:8-10

This is the fear of the Lord. As God spoke to Elijah, I pray there will be a remnant in the United States that will rise up and take their position in the Army of God because the war is already upon us. Will you go down to the waters of Gideon and be part of the 300 of the Lord?

The Elementary Principles

parable-of-the-sower 2Jesus sat down to teach the multitude by the Sea of Galilee, and He taught them in parables –

“Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” – Mark 4:3-9

Jesus later told His disciples that the seed was the word of God but there are several lessons for us to learn from this teaching. First, we must be actively spreading the word of God everywhere. Second, God desires fruit from His word, some more, some less, but all must bear fruit. Third, we don’t know what kind of ground we are sowing on, only the Holy Spirit knows. Our job is to spread the seed. Some are so enticed by the devil that they can’t hear the word, some don’t count the word precious enough to last through trouble or persecution, some are so taken up with the cares of this world that the word is choked out, but some will hear the word and treasure it and endure to keep it.

This parable was directly tied into the Great Commission Jesus gave to the church –

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” – Matt. 28:18-20

They were to spread the word unto all the nations. Those that responded were to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Then they were to teach them all things that Jesus had taught. This became known as the “apostle’s doctrine” (Acts 2:42). What does it mean to baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit?

Baptism in the father’s name is His choosing you for a new life. As when he took the Israelites out of the slavery of Egypt into the freedom of a new life. It is the ‘born again’ experience.

“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;” – 1 Cor. 10:1-2

Baptism in the name of the Son is embracing His death on the cross and being resurrected with Him into newness of life. And if we died with Him then we should no longer sin because the flesh is dead!

“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?” – Rom. 6:3

Baptism in the Holy Spirit is when the Holy Spirit comes upon one with power to do the things Jesus did and the evidence is speaking in other tongues.

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” – Acts 2:4

There are to be no ‘dead wood’ in the church. All are to be actively involved in the ministry. All are brought into new life, all are to embrace death to their flesh by taking up the cross and following Jesus, and all are to receive the Holy Spirit in power. All are to be active in spreading the word.

Jesus’ complaint against the first church in Revelation 2 (Rev. 2:4) was that they had left their first love. They had many good works, but they had stopped spreading the word. They stopped evangelizing! Good works can never replace evangelistic zeal!

To the church of Smyrna Jesus addressed the seed that fell on stony ground that had no root in itself. He encouraged them, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev. 2:10). He warned them that they would suffer and have tribulations but encouraged them to have faith to endure. The Christian life is not all peaches and cream. Jesus suffered and we are called to follow Him. The Apostle Peter wrote –

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” – 1Pet. 1:6-9

‘After you have been grieved by various trials and tested by fire’ are not popular teaching in the church today, but they are part of the ‘apostles’ doctrine’ that the first church grew on. In fact, there is little said in the modern church about grieving or being tested by fiery trials.

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” – Acts 2:42

But in the early church the apostles taught about the possibility of suffering for their faith, and they had a fellowship that prayed and ministered to one another to help. They prayed for healing, for deliverance, and for testing. And they ‘broke bread’ together. That means they shared some meals, and they took communion together, I think every time they met. They came together like a big family. They were not like spectators sitting in the audience being entertained. And they taught one another the ‘elementary principles of Christ’ that are recorded in Hebrews chapter six.

“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation:

    1. repentance from dead works,
    2. faith toward God,
    3. the doctrine of water baptism,
    4. the doctrine of baptism with the Holy Spirit,
    5. the laying on of hands,
    6. the resurrection of the dead,
    7. and of eternal judgement

These were just the elementary teachings; there were many more going on to perfection. Needless to say, they were not just part time Christians, attending church one day a week. They were the church, and they were full-time Christians!

The popular teacher Jonathan Cahn says that as we near the end of the age, everything is going back to how it was in the beginning of the church age, and I believe it. That means society is going back to its godless condition, but it also means the church will be going back to its vibrant condition that we see in the Book of Acts. When Jesus returns, He will not find big crowds to welcome Him. He said, “many are called, but few are chosen” and “When He comes will He find faith on the earth.” He also said, “wide is the gate that leads to destruction and narrow is the gate that leads to salvation.”

The modern church needs to return to its foundations, and they need to be filled with the fear of the Lord. Though we are saved by grace it is up to us to continue in that grace. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians –

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;” – Phil. 2:12

Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, and Peter said the same thing –

“And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Pet. 1:17-19

This is the Apostle’s Doctrine.

Vote for Truth

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

American Declaration of Independence with quill and parchment.

In November of 2022 a national midterm election will be held in which every American should vote. But that does not include those visitors here who are not American (i.e., illegals), nor does it include those Americans who have died before that date, nor does it include those who fraudulently vote more than once! I say this because the last general election included all of the above mentioned. In the state of CA, no identification was required of those who voted, all with a driver’s license were qualified and illegals are given CA drivers licenses when they arrive! Since CA does not appear to have changed that practice, I think the CA vote should be rejected in mass from any national election! If other states do not change their former proven ‘ballet harvesting’ schemes, their national votes should also be negated! A national vote should be based upon the concept of ‘one vote per one American’ and it should be given at designated voting polls that are sufficiently manned by qualified persons. Those who are too sick or are immobile because of sickness should have their votes given by sworn affidavit. Voting is an act of immense importance and should be treated that way. Any who are proven to negate this process should face immediate jail time as they are guilty of a treasonous act!

I say this because of what Jesus said. He said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). Now Americans love freedom, and our Constitution was written to guarantee freedom so, truth in our elections is therefore paramount to that freedom. We are now living in a culture where truth is daily mocked and negated. Our governmental institutions have redefined the meaning of the word – freedom, to mean ‘whatever is good for us’. The Joe Biden Administration has declared war on American energy, severely weakened energy production, and bringing on heavy inflation. The FBI, once an organization that fought to protect that freedom is now one of the most untruthful organizations in government! A recent article in Epoch Times written by Victor Hanson details the FBI’s decent into untruthfulness, and it is shocking! And the nation’s health tzar, the CDC, has now been proven to be in the hip pocket of big pharma and the global elites in fostering a false pandemic on our country with illegal shutdowns and forced vaccine shots that they knew were unproven, as detailed in the Epoch Times article A Deeper Dive Into the CDC Reversal.

Minneapolis Rioters WinAt the same time, we are being undermined with educational lies that promote Critical Race Theory and BLM, which is designed to undermine American history and bring division that will and is weakening us as a nation. While the truth is – no nation is perfect because they are all made up of mankind which is fallen due to sin but, the United States is one of the most perfect nations that has ever existed. From our beginning we gave freedom to those seeking freedom to worship as they saw fit. We opposed slavery and fought a bloody civil war to secure it. This nation gave the opportunity to every man to rise above his beginning status both socially and economically. It provides unprecedent levels of education for all its citizens. And we have been one of the most generous nations in our help to other nations and downtrodden people, both in monetary giftings and missionary ministry. We have become a beacon of freedom to all the world.

Drag_queen_story_timeOur government and its schools are now openly promoting homosexualism, which is one of the most harmful and untruthful lifestyles known to man. It degrades man’s intended purpose from what he was created to do, and no society can long exist on homosexual influence because they cannot procreate! They are now pushing the lie that there are more than two genders, male and female, even though nature itself denies this falsehood. All these ideologies are designed to tear down a society, not bring truth or enlightenment as they proclaim. Any society that embraces such lies is committing suicide!

We have now reached the stage the Apostle Paul wrote about –

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Paul warned what would happen to those who did not receive a love of the truth and it is not pleasant! As I see it, America has one chance to right itself in this upcoming election. We need to remove political power from those who have promoted such harmful policies and that means vote out Democrats and Rino Republicans from office and install those who believe in our Constitution and will uphold it and those who have a genuine belief in God and Christian principles! This is important enough for you to take the time to find out who is running for election and where they stand on the issue of truth! We cannot remove the current President in this election but, we can vote in those who will stand against his policies enough to hamstring him until the next presidential election in 2024.

I ask you to not go to the polls as a Democrat or a Republican but as an American and vote for truth.

The Days of Trouble

2020 disastersMany today see these as the days of trouble and indeed there is trouble throughout the world and in America as well. Some, who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture are looking for the soon return of Jesus on the clouds of glory to take them out. But it would be good to once again review what Jesus actually said about the end days.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” – Matt. 24:29-31

Notice, He said ‘after the tribulation of those days’, in other words we will be here to see those tribulation days. Not until the sun is darkened and the moon fails to give her light will we see Him returning on the clouds with His angels. Next Jesus told the parable of the good and evil servants. The evil servant did not prepare for his masters coming but the good servant took care of the people giving them food and serving his master. In other words, we are to be faithful doing the master’s work right up until He comes, regardless of the kind of day that is going on. Jesus said the Word of God was bread and food.

Jesus’ message is “Occupy until I come!” Remember how the Church began, it was not in peaceful times but in times of trouble! The government worked against the Church. The religious community worked against the Church. Nothing the government did followed Biblical teaching and the culture of the day was also opposed to Scriptural truth. Is that any different today? Who took the Ten Commandments down from public display? Who outlawed prayer to God from the schools? Who eliminated the Pledge of Allegiance from the schools? The government! Our culture: Hollywood, the news media, and education, are not promoting Biblical teaching today. In fact, their CRT doctrines, their homosexual agenda, as well shadrach,meshack,abednego as their transgenderism, are directly opposed to Biblical view! So, what are we, the followers of God to do about it? Are we to allow our churches to be locked down, wear masks to hide our faces and cover our mouths, or are we to be like the three Hebrew children of Daniel 3 who defied King Nebuchadnezzar?   The King said –

“Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” – Dan. 3:15

But they answered the King –

“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” – Dan. 3:16-18

Shadrack, Meshack, and Abed-nego did not yield to the fear, they did not bow down to the gods of this world and were willing to yield their bodies to God Almighty. They did not yield to the horns and flutes of the media of their day, and they did not listen to their proclamations to a false idol (Dr. Fausi and the NIH).

As Isaiah prophesied, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” – Isa. 60:2. Darkness is upon the land and the people are in gross darkness, but it is not a time to hide! Rather it is a time to “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.” Go out into the fields for the harvest is ripe and the Holy Spirit is falling on those who obey.
