“As a thief in the night…”

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

But know this, that if the goodman (master) of the house had known in what watch (hour) the thief would come, he would have watched, and would have not suffered (allowed) his house to be broken up (into)

Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:42-44

It has been on my heart to do a series of posts on what’s going on the world and what will come to pass as much of my ministry has been geared toward what we love to call the Apocalypse but actually this will be a day of rescue freedom for those who suffer in this world.

So many have turned their backs on the true Gospel;, rejecting it because in their thinking they just can’t “accept” a God who will bring judgement to earth for the sins committed theiren, but to me that is even more proof of just how far we have fallen.

Once upon a time a sermon on fire, brimstone, and the wrath of a Holy, righteous God was exactly what was needed to persuade people to repent, I myself, repented for that exact reason, such as many of us have, when faced with the truth that God is real, Hell is real, and only Jesus can save us from the eternal damnation that our sins have brought us in danger of. Now it is harder than ever to get people saved because the world has been brainwashed in the me, me, me mentality. It is all about them, what they want, what they feel that they “deserve” and if scripture says otherwise they will simply refuse to even acknowledge God unless they can find a candy coated congregation to coddle them, kiss their butts and make them feel all better while allowing them to continue in sin. God does not play that and we have long ago reached this scripture from Romans 1:24 “Who changed (exchanged) the truth of God into (for) a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more (rather) than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” 

And to understand how this happened we can back up to Romans 1:22: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

And as we see all the turmoil in the world escalating daily, with the decline of American values due to the spiritual wickedness that allowed, even encouraged, demanded, and passed into law it is now time to look ahead and study a little bit about the events that will follow if this course of human dissent is not soon everted, if there is still time to plead for a delay in these events that will come to pass.

As I have said before this was written long ago, prophesied as warnings by the prophets of God, warning us through his word to take heed because we could fall, and we could repent, God would be gracious if we were to change our ways, but we were also warned of a generation to come that would not heed those warnings and that generation would fall, and what a mighty fall it would be.

Not only the warnings of the great falling away by the church, people giving themselves over, worshipping themselves, the creature rather than the Creator, forsaking the commands and laws of God in exchange for their own version of what they deem right.

The warnings of pestilence and natural disasters that Jesus told us of, the warning of those who kill God’s very chosen while proclaiming that they are killing them on behalf of God, which by the way, never be discouraged by this, God will avenge the death of all his saints and those who worship their false idol that they proclaim to be their god, will one day bow at the feet of Jesus, along with the rest of creation and confess that he is the true God, and nothing will prevent this from happening.

We go on to the signs and wonders, the end time  events and earthquake that will be so forceful, earth will literally rock on it’s axis

We will have the anti-Christ demanding to be worshipped, no one without his mark will be able to buy or sell, not even purchase one morsel of food, starvation will run rampant, and when all else fails and there will be those will not worship him and those who refuse will die, God after removing his people from this earth, I will give you some scripture on that in a bit, but after his people are removed, he will begin to send the plagues from the book of Revelation and the destruction of spiritual Babylon is tied in with all of it, it is a separate judgment on that country because it’s wickedness polluted the entire earth when it’s purpose had been to spread the Gospel and shine a light to the nations and then we will have the battle of Armageddon, and I promise you all those today that are killing, slaughtering innocent people in the name of their religion will be defeated along with all who wish to stand against Jehovah God and his chosen the country Israel and his children and the innocent of this earth.

And then Jesus Christ will reign on this earth and it will be a whole new ball game, and even those who refuse to believe now and who think they are somehow better than the God who created them will finally understand, that is part of that humility that God asked his people to have when he told them to pray and humble themselves and he would heal their land.

It’s kinda like the old cop shows sayings, you know, “You can do this the easy way or the hard way.” And I am so afraid for millions it will be the hard way and we’ll be doing some major posts on just how hard the hard way is going to be.

And I do want to take a minute to address the persecuted and those who will be persecuted, 

God sees your pain, your sorrow and he has given you a great promise, Revelation 2:10,11: “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer; behold, the devil shall cats some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days; be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

He that hath an ear; let him what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh (perseveres) shall not be hurt of the second death.” 

Remember Jesus commended his spirit into the hands of the Father and Stephen asked the Lord to receive his spirit as they were stoning him,  many of us have died, have been martyred all through time, William Tyndale was burned at the stake and many others persecuted so that we could have the Bible’s we take for granted today, the church was built on blood, the blood of those who were willing to give their life for what they know to be the truth and that life given from this earth will be eternally resurrected in a glorious immortal reign with Christ, the happiest thought that I do believe that had ever entered into my mind is this, they can kill us but they can only kill us once!

That is it, one time, and as Jesus told us the second death, they death that those who tormented God children, if they do not repent, will face that second death and eternal damnation in a lake of unquenchable fire and it will be forever.

But for those who die in him, e said this, Luke 21:12-19: “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up into the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.

And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to mediate what ye shall answer (think about what you will say to them) 

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay (refute) nor resist.

And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, kinsfolk, and friends, and some of you they shall cause to be put to death.

And ye shall be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls.”

He is telling us to have that patience, patience in the afterlife, that even if they kill us, we will be resurrected, just as he resurrected and he is so specific that he even tells us not one hair will be lost, nothing can be lost that he can not recreate and resurrect!

Isn’t that an awesome feeling!

So we got that one covered, let’s get to the next group in our refresher course here, shall we? This is classic.

“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them which sleep in Jesus (died in Christ), will God bring with him.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent (proceed) them which are asleep (dead) .

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump (trumpet) of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first.

Then we which are alive and remain (holding true to God) shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet in the air, and so shall we wever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17

So where are we going and a better question yet, is why are we going?  For those answers, let’s look at another promise.

“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience (my command to persevere)I, also will keep thee from the hour of   temptation (trial), which shall come upon all the world, to try (test) them that dwell upon the earth.” Revelation 3:4

This will be the last chance for people to decide who they will worship, we either live for the Lord or the devil, there is no middle ground,we are just foolish enough to believe that there is, this is why in “professing themselves to be wise they became fools”.

So when all this happens Jesus will rapture his people, those who have believed and committed, and confessed Christ will be spared all the horror that will take place on this earth.

But those who are still willy-nilly and wishy-washy in their commitment making will see all these things come to pass and that testing begins as the anti-Christ demands the entire world worship him and they will have to decide death to this life and eternal resurrected life or life in this world, and eternal damnation.

And since everyone is constantly screaming about wanting their own way and their own choices, they will indeed have it but it is going to be horrible, and not buying, selling, or the other torments the anti-Christ will enact will still in no way compare the wrath and judgment God is going to pour out on those who choose to follow the devil and his leadership, the anti-Christ.

So now we know that those who die in Christ will be resurrected at the rapture of those Jesus spares from the end time tribulations, so now to hear the why.

The beginning of this is what happened and the second is the Lord’s mercy. Dig the asterisk,  please pay special attention to those verses.

“Lord, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out (whispered) a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.

Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs (sharp pains); so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.

We have  been with child, we have been in pain, we have, as it were brought forth (given birth to) wind; we have not wrought (brought) any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

*Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out her dead.

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about (around) thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment (brief time) , until the indignation be overpast.

For behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose (reveal) her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”  Isaiah 26:16-21

A picture of the rapture, being hidden for just a moment until the Lord cleans up this earth to prepare for the new one.

If you notice the choice of words used to describe the Lord’s emotion… indignation, meaning his anger, rightful anger at the mistreatment and violence, and murders and atrocities committed against the innocent.

Even earth giving up all the blood that has been shed in it, from those murdered by false religions, those martyred for the word of God, the billions of aborted babies, the list could go on and on.

And that is good thought for those who say this is unfair, God has given mankind chance after chance to repent but instead we grow more wicked, while those that bear the brunt of that wickedness, that are beaten in the streets, tormented, persecuted, and starved all across this world will continue to suffer until the only one who has the power to put a stop it all returns to this earth to stop it.

As this is all winding up and  fast coming to a cataclysmic end I want to leave you with this.

“FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”  Romans 10:13

“And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they might have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

For outside are dogs (depraved people),and sorcerers, and whoremongers (sexaully immoral) ,and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (will not get in)

I Jesus have sent mine angels to testify unto you these things in the churches, I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come, And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst (thirsts) come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:12-17

So I say to you tonight, as part of that bride and as a messenger of Christ, Come, if you have never made that commitment, please do not delay, come while there is still time to be in that blessed number that will be spared from the wrath and judgment to come.

Again, come.

“BLESSED”/ THE BETROTHED, AND THE BEHEADED / PART 2

Revelation 6:9-11: “And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for word of God, and for the testimony which they held; and they cried with a loud voice, saying How long, O long, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on earth?

And white robes were given unto every one of; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren that should be (will be) killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” 
                                

So much for not remembering being on earth, not only do they remember, they know they were murdered and they want justice.
I think the preppers have the right ideal they just need a little guidance. 

They know something is coming and are attempting to prepare for it, they know they will not be able to buy what they need and will need to protect themselves.

They just don’t know exactly why, yet, the answer to that question can be answered with nine words, the anti Christ and the mark of the beast.

It is imperative that we really start getting THIS Gospel out.

The chapters of the book no one wants to preach, because it usually scares people, which can run them away and for money churches that is not a viable option, because money and prestige  are far more important than saving souls.
For others they just do not want to have to deal with it.

But who does? It is scary and anyone who thinks I enjoy this part of my job, you better pray and think again.

I have spent years studying these scriptures and crying countless tears because I KNOW what is coming and people can blow me off or laugh, but as with the prophets of old, the day came that they found out that it wasn’t so funny anymore.

But I am sure you do your job, and this is mine.

I often use this analogy that I feel is very accurate, If you saw someone who you knew to be completely deaf standing on a railroad track, facing backward to a speeding freight train, that they could not hear or see coming, would you try to pull them out-of-the-way or would you just stand and watch them die?

I see a world full of people on that track! I see the freight train speeding toward them and I am very, very afraid that there is not much time left to pull them from that track. 

Then those who laugh because they find this so funny so outrageous, because their deafened ears can’t hear the sound of that train, in their pride and arrogance they choose to believe that it is not coming, and this is when the laughter will stop.

The laughter will stop when millions of people disappear without a trace from the face of the earth.
The laughter will stop when world events others had tried to warn them of begins to unfold all around them.
The laughter will stop when what everyone thought was a prosperous peace for all deal goes south after three and a half years.
The laughter will stop when the anti-Christ reveals his true plans demanding that everyone in the world must worship him.
The laughter will stop when all must pledge allegiance to him by taking his mark. (Satan’s counterfeit to the sealing of the servants of God)
The laughter will stop when those who wish to resist will suddenly find that no amount of money, no credit cards, not even pure gold bars will purchase food, medicine anything they may need because without his mark you will not be able to sell or buy.

How long can you live without food, water, shelter, heat. What if a loved one is sick, what about medicine, or baby diapers or milk?
Now would be a good time to ask the church you found so amusing for help, but wait the church is no longer there.

It has been taken, those who trusted God are now protected against the fulfillment of these days.

Maybe you can hold out for a while with the goods you have on hand, but the days will follow shortly after most have been marked and it will be a little harder to hide, then they will give you one final choice, you take this mark or you die.

Think this is bad, well it can get worse, because if you happen to live in “Mystery Babylon the Great”  you will not even have the option of beheading.

It will be destroyed from the face of the earth in a separate judgment and once all this begins those living there, will just simply be dead, and never have the chance to repent again.
By this point all laughter will have ceased.

But I still want to give hope, I  do believe the mark will get a lot of them, because lets face it people are so sold out to Satan now and they’ll bust your head over a good deal at Christmas, so why would half of them even resist?

I know there are those who worry about being tricked or chipped into taking it. 

But I promise you this can not happen.
Jesus loves us all too much to let us be tricked into losing our souls and he has  angels proclaim this.  Everyone will be conscious of their decision.

Revelation 14: 6-11: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto the earth, and every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory: for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

And there  followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture (meaning full force) into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”                                          
                      
Jesus said in Luke 21:17-19: “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair on your head perish. in your patience possess ye your souls .

Revelation 2:10,11:Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: Behold, the devil shalt cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
He tells us to keep our patience, don’t give up your soul, because you will arise just as he did, death will have no power over you and no matter what they do, not one hair will be lost upon resurrection.

Giving us peace in that resurrection.

Revelation 14:12,13: “Here in is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice out of heaven saying unto me, Write. Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord  henceforth ( from this point forward): Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them in them.”  
                                    
This is their blessing: 
Revelation 20:4-6: “And I saw thrones, and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark in their foreheads or hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 

But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

This is the first resurrection. Blessed and Holy is he who hath part in the first resurrection on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him one thousand years.
                                     
As these things take place, and the signs are all around, with many already being martyred as those who have been martyred through the ages,  God will then begin to rain judgment on this earth, upon all who did not heed the call of the angels, but that is a subject for another day.

“Blessed” Part 1

“BLESSED” / THE BETROTHED AND THE BEHEADED PART 1

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then those that are alive and remain (are saved) shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

The rapture of the church, the return of the Lamb to retrieve his Bride, having paid her bride price with his own blood.
Giving his life that she may live, the ancient Jewish customs proving faithful as the souls of believers confess “You are my Savior” echoing “I am my beloveds and he is mine.”
Having gone away to prepare a place for her, being  reminiscent of the protective, seclusion of the wedding canopy.
He will now return with the army of his companions to take her away to the “secret dwelling place of the Most High” until all things can be fulfilled on earth.
 And he does this because we could not bear to witness the carnage and bloodshed that will overflow this earth.
As in Ezekiel, when those who were supposed to be his servants  filled his temple with filth and abominations, at the cries of his people who could not stand seeing his temple defiled, he then determined that the end for them had come, he called forth his angel

Ezekiel 9:4-6 “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men ( humans) that sigh and cry for the abominations that are done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing (so I could hear), Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids and little children, and women: but  come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary.”
Just as judgment must begin at the house of the Lord.
He always deals with his people first and we shall see one day just as with this story, what will become of those who hold doctrines not quite true to the word of God.

Lets do a little mirror image on this and see the reflection.
Revelation 7:2,3 “And I saw another angel ascending from the east,  having the seal of the living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,  till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” 

As all things foreshadow those which are to come, only it will come on a much grander scale.

Revelation 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.” 

We who are alive and have remained faithful to our bridegroom and kept our faith, will be removed from this earth just as he protected Noah and his family from the flood.
Lot and his daughters were spared from the destruction of Sodom, on behalf of the intercession by Abram.

This is what the Lord speaks over us: Isaiah 26:19,20
“Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise.

Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs,  and the earth shall cast out her dead. 
 Come my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee: hide  thyself as it were, but for a moment, until the indignation be overpast.”
We must be ready when that call comes, because only those who have accepted Christ will be in this gathering.
 Those who remain on this earth after the rapture of the church will only be saved by refusing to worship the anti-Christ and refusing the mark of the beast, and being beheaded for that refusal. 

Maybe people who may not yet be ready to commit will soon see, all we need to do is watch the news. Israel is almost completely surrounded by enemies as the Lord said would happen and the heart breaking beheading of the first two journalists revealing an eerie clue, the first a Christian, the second a Jew.
Facts probably unknown at the time to their captors, all things are prophetic when you look at what is really there.
So to all who are not saved, please do not wait, if you feel the tug of God, please accept him before it is to late. You do not want to be left on this earth.

His promise to us: Revelation 19:7-9  “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for fine linen is the righteousness of the saints.

And he said unto me.  Write. Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.  and he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”

Please accept his invitation, because this is one dinner you do not want to miss.

HEART FAILURE ( HEART SERIES PART 2)

Isaiah 21:11, the question is posed ” Watchman, what of the night? Watchman what of the night?”… How would this be answered present day?
The night has grown ever darker, a darkness like never before and a darkness unlike any that has ever been.
“Earth is filled with blood and can no longer cover her slain”
As the warning symptoms have been ignored the irregular heartbeat has fast became a more grave condition, heart failure and it is in the final stages.
As in the days of Noah, every imagination of human hearts has become evil, causing as the Lord foretold, “the love of many to wax (grow) cold”. The immorality and deviancy has far surpassed anything imagined in the famed cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. The cry because of the sin is dangerously close to reaching into the heavens as did the cries of the sins of Sodom, calling down their destruction from a Holy God.
Theirs hearts blackened and congested from that sin.
“God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (fitting): being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful; WHO KNOWING THE JUDGMENT OF GOD, THAT THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, NOT ONLY DO THE SAME, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM.                     Romans 1: 28-32

“Howl ye Shepherds”  the flock you were to guide and to protect, you have allowed to starve and wander alone suffering many wounds, unable to defend themselves against the beasts of the field. While you, yourselves have grazed and grown fat on their pasturage.
What shall you answer YOUR Shepherd when you are required to give account for the number you were entrusted with?
“Weep Harvesters” for you will soon hear, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and WE ARE NOT SAVED.”
Why do you not work? Why do you not labor? Do you not know that is it the eleventh hour? There is very little time left before complete darkness falls, as the Lord commanded you, work while it is yet day, for night cometh when no man can work!
Bow your heads, Watchmen! You are the worst of the whole lot. Because you have seen the sword coming and yet, you have refused to sound the trumpet, knowing perfectly well that the penalty is to be numbered to that same sword.
As the sword has already been called forth upon the treasures of Babylon, what of the things yet to be done?
Is there still hope? Is there yet time?
As he said “If my people, who are called by my name, would humble themselves”…….
Luke 14: 22,23 “And the servant said, Lord, it is done  as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
Compel, strongly urging “whosoever will” to come as there remains precious little time.
Precious little time left before what? You may ask, Before this.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and waves roaring (tsunami): MENS  
HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, AND FOR LOOKING  AFTER THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH, FOR THE POWERS OF HEAVEN SHALL BE SHAKEN.”             Luke 21:25-27

“The earth is also defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. THE EARTH SHALL REEL TO AND FRO LIKE A DRUNKARD, and it shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgressions thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall and not rise again.” 
                                     Isaiah 24: 5,19,20

“THE EARTH SHALL QUAKE BEFORE THEM; THE HEAVENS SHALL TREMBLE: THE STARS SHALL WITHDRAW THEIR SHINING. AND THE LORD SHALL UTTER HIS VOICE BEFORE HIS ARMY: FOR HIS CAMP IS VERY GREAT: FOR HE IS STRONG THAT EXECUTETH HIS WORD: FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS GREAT AND VERY TERRIBLE; WHO CAN ABIDE IN IT?”
                                       Joel 2:10,11
Yeah, I think we may need to get that heart condition checked!

REST IN THE RECKONING

I can’t seem to get the image of James Foley out of my head, and it’s not just him… it is all of them.
Abducted, unmercifully tortured, and paraded off to be savagely executed by demonic, twisted sadistic butchers to gain media attention for their truly hopeless cause.
Hiding their faces behind their masks of death black reminiscent of the dunce hat wearing, cross burnin’ boys of the south, But you know at least the Nazi’s would show their faces.
What does it all mean? John the Baptists head severed and served on a platter as an appreciative token for the undoubtedly sleazy dance of a pagan princess.
Apostle Paul practically writing his last will and testament to all believers as his beheading approached.
Peter carried out the brunt of his ministry under complete awareness that not only would he die, he would die by crucifixion, Jesus himself telling Peter that this would happen and Peter deciding that it was a price he would be willing to pay to see the Kingdom of God come.
It is as if they believe by taking the heads of God’s servants the are in some way, taking the head from the body of Christ, which will never happen.
The Prophet Isaiah was sawn in half. Steven’s face became as an angel as the anointed words straight from the heart of God proceeded from his mouth hammering the hearts of his enemies with unwanted conviction, and even as they stoned him, Steven did not stop, even praying that they not be held accountable for his death.
Polycarp, the eighty-six year old martyr, whose boldness and courage given from the Lord allowed him to meet his fate with the same acceptance, God had  shown him in a dream what was to come and he met it head on, because he knew that they could only kill him once and after that he would be resurrected by the Lord eternally.
Hebrews 11:36,39: “They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented, (OF WHOM THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY)
they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise.” 
                                    
The most outstanding words in that passage point to the fact, that this world was not good enough for their presence!
And they were successful in doing the work of the Lord and yet they died before seeing the final result of the what would now be their accomplished  life’s work.
The world was not worthy, nor is it now. How do we survive these last days, when all we hear is terror upon terror in every given report?
As Jesus forewarned us that the days would come that those who killed his followers would think  that they were doing the service of God.
But in all these things we are to keep our souls focused on him and in his rest, and as scary as this is,  NOT FEAR THEM.
Matthew 10:26,28: Fear them NOT therefore; for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that ye speak in the light; and what ye hear in the ear, that preach upon the housetops. And FEAR NOT them which are able to kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather FEAR HIM which is ABLE TO DESTROY BOTH SOUL AND BODY IN HELL.”
                                     
In our patient wait for him, we are to rest in the blessed reassurance that our “redemption draweth nigh” he will make his enemies his footstool and in his blessed reckoning.
He will not hide his face they will know exactly who He is!
Psalm 45:3-5: “Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty ride prosperously because of thy truth and thy meekness and righteousness;  and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the hearts of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.”
                                      
Revelation 19: 11-16:  “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. AND HE WAS CLOTHED WITH A VESTURE DIPPED IN BLOOD: AND HIS NAME IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD. AND THE ARMIES WHICH WERE IN HEAVEN FOLLOWED HIM UPON WHITE HORSES, CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN, WHITE AND CLEAN. AND OUT OF HIS MOUTH GOETH A SHARP SWORD, THAT WITH IT HE SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS: HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON: AND HE TREADHETH THE
WINEPRESS (BLOODBATH) OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD. AND HE HAD ON HIS VESTURE (ROBE) AND ON HIS THIGH (SWORD SHEATH) A NAME WRITTEN, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
                                 
So amidst all the Hades breaking loose on earth, keep your eyes focused on the heavens, let your soul rest in the arms of a beautiful, merciful, gentle creator and pray for deliverance for all from evil and when reckoning comes, all bets will be off and they will find there is no fighting him.
Regardless of news broadcasts, or constant worldwide threats, I will tell you how this story shall end:
Romans 14:11:  “For it is written: AS I LIVE SAITH THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS TO GOD.”
                                  
Maybe hiding behind and pleading the names of the pagans gods they worship will help them, ah, no I don’t think so…
Philippians 2:9-11: “WHEREFORE GOD HATH ALSO EXALTED HIM AND GIVEN HIM A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME:
THAT AT THE NAME OF JESUS EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW OF THINGS IN HEAVEN, AND THINGS IN EARTH, AND THINGS UNDER THE EARTH. AND THAT EVERY TONGUE SHOULD (WILL) CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.”

BLESSED/ THE BETROTHED, AND THE BEHEADED / PART 2

Revelation 6:9-11: “And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for word of God, and for the testimony which they held; and they cried with a loud voice, saying How long, O long, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on earth? And white robes were given unto every one of; and it was said unto them, THAT THEY SHOULD  YET REST A LITTLE SEASON, UNTIL THEIR FELLOW SERVANTS ALSO AND THEIR BRETHREN THAT SHOULD BE (WILL BE) KILLED AS THEY WERE, SHOULD BE FULFILLED.”
                                

So much for not remembering being on earth, not only do they remember, they know they were murdered and they want justice.
I think the preppers have the right ideal they just need a little guidance. 

They know something is coming and are attempting to prepare for it, they know they will not be able to buy what they need and will need to protect themselves.

They just don’t know exactly why, yet, the answer to that question can be answered with nine words, the anti Christ and the mark of the beast.
It is imperative that we really start getting THIS Gospel out.
The chapters of the book no one wants to preach, because it usually scares people, which can run them away and for money churches that is not a viable option, because money and prestige  are far more important than saving souls.
For others they just do not want to have to deal with it.

But who does? It is scary and anyone who thinks I enjoy this part of my job, you better pray and think again.

I have spent years studying these scriptures and crying countless tears because I KNOW what is coming and people can blow me off or laugh, but as with the prophets of old, the day came that they found out that it wasn’t so funny anymore.

But I am sure you do your job, and this is mine.

I often use this analogy that I feel is very accurate, If you saw someone who you knew to be completely deaf standing on a railroad track, facing backward to a speeding freight train, that they could not hear or see coming, would you try to pull them out-of-the-way or would you just stand and watch them die?

I SEE A WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE ON THAT TRACK.I SEE THE FREIGHT TRAIN SPEEDING TOWARD THEM AND I AM VERY, VERY AFRAID THAT THERE IS NOT MUCH TIME TO GET THEM OFF THAT TRACK.

Then those who laugh because they find this so funny so outrageous, because their deafened ears can’t hear the sound of that train, in their pride and arrogance they choose to believe that it is not coming, and this is when the laughter will stop.

The laughter will stop when millions of people disappear without a trace from the face of the earth.
The laughter will stop when world events others had tried to warn them of begins to unfold all around them.
The laughter will stop when what everyone thought was a prosperous peace for all deal goes south after three and a half years.
The laughter will stop when the anti-Christ reveals his true plans demanding that everyone in the world must worship him.
The laughter will stop when all must pledge allegiance to him by taking his mark. (Satan’s counterfeit to the sealing of the servants of God)
The laughter will stop when those who wish to resist will suddenly find that no amount of money, no credit cards, not even pure gold bars will purchase food, medicine anything they may need because without his mark you will not be able to sell or buy.

How long can you live without food, water, shelter, heat. What if a loved one is sick, what about medicine, or baby diapers or milk?
Now would be a good time to ask the church you found so amusing for help, but wait the church is no longer there.

It has been TAKEN , those who trusted God are now protected against the fulfillment of these days.

Maybe you can hold out for a while with the goods you have on hand, but the days will follow shortly after most have been marked and it will be a little harder to hide, then they will give you one final choice, you take this mark or you die.

Think this is bad, well it can get worse, because if you happen to live in “Mystery Babylon the Great”  you will not even have the option of beheading.

It will be destroyed from the face of the earth in a separate judgment and once all this begins those living there, will just simply be dead, and never have the chance to repent again.
By this point all laughter will have ceased.

But I still want to give hope, I  do believe the mark will get a lot of them, because lets face it people are so sold out to Satan now and they’ll bust your head over a good deal at Christmas, so why would half of them even resist?

I know there are those who worry about being tricked or chipped into taking it. 

But I promise you this can not happen.
Jesus loves us all too much to let us be tricked into losing our souls and he has  ANGELS PROCLAIM THIS everyone will be conscious of their decision.

Revelation 14: 6-11: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven HAVING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL TO PREACH UNTO THE EARTH, AND EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED,AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory: for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

And there  followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,

IF ANY MAN WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND RECEIVE HIS MARK IN HIS FOREHEAD, OR IN HIS HAND. THE SAME SHALL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD, WHICH IS POURED OUT WITHOUT MIXTURE (FULL FORCE) into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME.”                                          
                      
Jesus said in Luke 21:17-19: “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair on your head perish. IN YOUR PATIENCE POSSESS YE YOUR SOULS.

Revelation 2:10,11:FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER: Behold, the devil shalt cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH, AND I WILL GIVE THEE A CROWN OF LIFE. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the churches; HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL NOT BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH.”
He tells us to keep our patience, don’t give up your soul, because you will arise just as he did, death will have no power over you and no matter what they do, not one hair will be lost upon resurrection.

Giving us PEACE in that RESURRECTION.

Revelation 14:12,13: “Here in is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice out of heaven saying unto me, WRITE. BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHICH DIE IN THE LORD FROM HENCEFORTH (THIS POINT ON): YEA, SAITH THE SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY REST FROM THEIR LABOURS; AND THEIR WORKS DO FOLLOW THEM.”
                                    
THIS IS THEIR BLESSING:
Revelation 20:4-6: “And I saw thrones, and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: AND I SAW THE SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE BEHEADED FOR THE WITNESS OF JESUS, AND FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND WHICH HAD NOT WORSHIPED THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER  HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK IN THEIR FOREHEADS OR HANDS; AND THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS. but the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. BLESSED AND HOLY IS HE WHO HATH PART IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION ON SUCH THE SECOND DEATH HATH NO POWER, BUT THEY SHALL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND SHALL REIGN WITH HIM ONE THOUSAND YEARS.”
                                     
Once the beheadings happen, God will then begin to rain judgment on this earth, upon all who did not heed the call of the angels, but that is a subject for another day.

BLESSED / THE BETROTHED AND THE BEHEADED PART 1

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then those that are alive and remain (are saved) shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
The rapture of the church, the return of the Lamb to retrieve his Bride, having paid her bride price with his own blood.
Giving his life that she may live, the ancient Jewish customs proving faithful as the souls of believers confess “You are my Savior” echoing “I am my beloveds and he is mine.”
Having gone away to prepare a place for her, being  reminiscent of the protective, seclusion of the wedding canopy.
He will now return with the army of his companions to take her away to the “secret dwelling place of the Most High” until all things can be fulfilled on earth.
 And he does this because we could not bear to witness the carnage and bloodshed that will overflow this earth.
As in Ezekiel, when those who were supposed to be his servants  filled his temple with filth and abominations, at the cries of his people who could not stand seeing his temple defiled, he then determined that the end for them had come, he called forth his angels, Ezekiel 9:4-6 “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and SET A MARK upon the foreheads of the men ( humans) that sigh and cry for the abominations that are done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing (so I could hear), Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids and little children, and women: but COME NOT NEAR ANY MAN UPON WHOM IS THE MARK; and BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY.”
Just as judgment must begin at the house of the Lord.
He always deals with his people first and we shall see one day just as with this story, what will become of those who hold doctrines not quite true to the word of God.
Lets do a little mirror image on this and see the reflection.
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, HAVING THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, TILL WE HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.” Revelation 7:2,3
As all things foreshadow those which are to come, only it will come on a much grander scale.
Revelation 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any tree; but only those men which HAVE NOT THE SEAL OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.”
We who are alive and have remained faithful to our bridegroom and kept our faith, will be removed from this earth just as he protected Noah and his family from the flood.
Lot and his daughters were spared from the destruction of Sodom, on behalf of the intercession by Abram.
This is what the Lord speaks over us: Isaiah 26:19,20
“Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. AWAKE and sing, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, AND THE EARTH SHALL CAST OUT HER DEAD.
COME MY PEOPLE, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee: HIDE thyself as it were, but for a moment, UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST.”
We must be ready when that call comes, because only those who have accepted Christ will be in this gathering.
THOSE WHO REMAIN ON THIS EARTH AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH WILL ONLY BE SAVED BY  REFUSING TO WORSHIP THE ANTI CHRIST  AND REFUSING TO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND BEING BEHEADED.
Maybe people who may not yet be ready to commit will soon see, all we need to do is watch the news. Israel is almost completely surrounded by enemies as the Lord said would happen and the heart breaking beheading of the first two journalists revealing an eerie clue, the first a Christian, the second a Jew.
Facts probably unknown at the time to their captors, all things are prophetic when you look at what is really there.
So to all who are not saved, please do not wait, if you feel the tug of God, please accept him before it is to late. You do not want to be left on this earth.
His promise to us: Revelation 19:7-9  “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. And he said unto me. WRITE. BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE CALLED UNTO THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB. and he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”
Please accept his invitation, because this is one dinner you do not want to miss.
