Last Days Part 2/ “Never give an inch until you know the real cost”

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast (living creature) say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse; and he that sat upon him had a pair of balances (scales) in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of of the four beasts (living creatures)  say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny (denarius); and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine”  Revelation 6:5

This is picking back up where we left off in our study of  America, oh, err… Mystery Babylon the Great 😉

Yeah, well we know it’s not that much of a mystery now, and I am just going to get real honest right here… Now would be a really good time to let it sink in that the end time lady, who brags that she sits a Queen and is no widow is none other than America the Great.

This is hard for anyone to deal with and I have wrestled for years with my calling as a messenger of tidings that people often do not want to hear, I didn’t even want to acknowledge it myself, much less proclaim it .

I love America, I love my people but just as God brought judgment on Israel of old, we are no different and he actually said this, “For, lo, I begin to bring evil (calamity) on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished; for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.” Jeremiah 25:29

That’s the problem, the nations have been deceived and rebelled against God and God will judge that and no nation is so entitled and so righteous as to be above God and his commands, that is the transition from Blessed Great to Wicked Babylon the Great.

We know that the name of Babylon is her spiritual name, she is referred to as a mystery because her identity was not foretold, as she did not even exist as of the time her rebellion against God and subsequent judgement and destruction were foretold and prophesied by prophets of old, including Jeremiah, as Jeremiah had Seraiah read his written words of the judgments laid out by God and then throw the book into the Euphrates it would reflect as the end time angelic activities directed toward earth, 

So to go on with, as Columbo would say, “That cat’s outta  the bag”, very interesting term, even more interesting for our purpose here, the origin is not quite certain, and there are several, but it is a term for the revealing of an act that is discovered to have been a deception.

One thought is that merchants would suppose to sell someone a baby pig, but once money and the bag containing the pig had changed hands and the buyer went their way and later opened the bag to find a cat instead.

Hence therefore also, our term “A pig in a poke.” and our southern warning, to never buy “A pig in a poke,”

And people, hear me, all the inflation, rising gas prices, merchandise shortages, and shipping stockpiles are being used in conjunction with the forced vaccine mandates, to sell you nothing more than a very deadly “pig in a poke” and what is going to be found at the bottom of that bag is far worse than Corona and five dollar gallons of gas.

Lets first talk about financial judgment  God brings against nations.

One warning here that God gave against nations forgetting that all blessing comes from him and his provision.

And when you apply this to the thought that God allowed the pilgrims to come to this land, and whether people want to deal with it or not, America was originally settled by people who only wanted to serve God, Jehovah God, without persecution and fear.

They gave up everything and many died in the process, they left everything and came to a foreign land with nothing waiting for them, except freedom!

They had no prebuilt homes, they had no provisions laid up waiting for them to arrive.

They came only with faith and unimageable courage, and they came to worship the one true God, and even with their poverty, starvation, sickness, and toil they did not give up, they did not complain and they were thankful, they were thankful because they were free!

The evil ones came later, the Indian killers, and land stealers, and evil, evil slave traders, and all the evil and wickedness that has borne the beast that the Babylon has become, that same evil force that  crept in and deluded minds and literally possessed politicians that now just your basic common affection has gone out the door, and the slaughter of millions of  our own babies proving that every single day, and the desire of many to allow abortions to nine month term is truly a horrific development.

And you have to wonder when these people scream about this being a right and not bat an eyelash to the fact that this is a human being, this is a baby, this is a child who if born a month early to parents who wanted it would be given specialized care, but not wanted would be labeled, full term, as a ‘product of conception” and absolutely murdered at the hands of someone professing to be a doctor, who has taken an oath to do no harm!!??

Slaughter is about as harmful as it gets! So again, don’t question why.

But I will tell you this also, as we get into this study further, we will be looking at the end time inability to die, which I believe is judgment because they no regard for life, so when God rains down judgments and they think they can commit suicide and escape it, he supernaturally takes away their ability to die, no matter what they do, they can not die, and they will not die until he allows them to die, once and for all  assuring all that he is the Creator and he is ultimately who will control death and life, as was the original intention.

I am so thankful for the Godly leaders that are standing up and fighting against it, they will be able to stand and give account to the Lord that they did do everything in their power to stand for what is right.

So let’s take a look at that warning.

“Thou shalt also consider (know) in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee.  Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways and fear him.

For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.

A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates, and oil olive, and honey;

A land wherein though shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.

When thou hast eaten and are full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 

Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues, which I command thee this day. 

Lest when  thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly (beautiful) houses, and dwelt therein; 

And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

Then thine heart be lifted up (becomes proud) and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought the out of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought forth water out of the rock of flint.

Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove (test) thee, to do the good at thy later end. 

*And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine (my) hand hath gotten me this wealth. 

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth , that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. 

And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.  

As did the nations which the Lord destroyed  before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 8:5-20

Now let’s read a little of those judgments being pronounced. Shall we?

“A sword is upon (against) the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and her wise men.

A sword is upon the liars (against the soothsayers, physics), and they shall dote (be fools); a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.

A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon the mingled people that are in the midst of herand they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.

A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up; for it is a land of graven images, and they are mad upon (insane with) their idols.” Jeremiah 50: 35-38

We will be coming back to this chapter, Lord will, in a later post, but this is the Lord calling for a sword, which means, supernatural divine judgment, against all the mediums,  psychics and sorcery , and the weaponry, which we have already seen a little of that one, but will get more into later, but also we see us, the land of mingled people, a land made up of all races, mixed and all inhabiting one nation, Babylon the Great, and we see that sword upon her treasures, and if you will remember, we discussed that in a prior post with great detail.

So you can see that the economic collapse will come as a judgment so  there will be no human correction of it, but what will happen and is happening is that it is being used as a tool and will be used as a tool to literally starve people into submission, submission to an agenda that is so dark and so evil and will ultimately lead to the anti-Christ’s enactment of the mark of the beast.

At this particular moment, the screws are tightening, threats of defunding for every reason known to man, have been going on for awhile now and have just escalated with threats of either vaccinate or lose your jobs and if these rules aren’t enforced by the companies who do not even necessarily want  to impose these demands on their employees than whatever funding, in some cases, that they depend on will be taken away.

It comes down to forcing people to forego their rights and liberties, to do as they are told in order to have food, shelter, and necessities of life and to establish the “normalcy” of socialism, you know, spring it on you a little at a time, making more ridiculous demands with each step of the process and each step of teh process having greater financial consequence if “disobeyed”.

At the end of teh day is just one more of teh pigs in a poke that America and teh world are being saddled with, and this is not a vaccinate or not vaccinate post, we must make our own choices, but make sure it is a choice of your own choosing because it is all just part of groundwork being laid to one day lead people to the ultimate choice.

A choice for your soul, when people have been starved out and the demand is made take this mark, sware allegiance to the devil incarnate and sell your very soul for the ‘privilege’ of buying food  for a body, that after having received the mark, will then immediately fall under tormenting judgments, so tortured to even eat and a soul now lost to be condemned to an eternal hell.

Don’t buy their pigs in pokes, remember the pigs that legion was cast into, well, these pigs are carry the same cargo.

I’ll end it with our beginning scripture to put it all in prospective for you, a penny might not sound like much, until you realize that refers to and entire day’s wage, read it again, and ponder that.

The Zondervan KJV Study Bible dictionary note explains it as this, that would be about one quart of wheat, barely enough for one person, three quarts of the barley, which is not having much nutritional value, would be what a family would have for their meal.

The penny is equivalent to an entire day’s wages, famine causing prices to be ten times higher than average.

So for us, that would be like working an entire day for one slice of bread.

The wine and oil refers to the children of God, so trust him and do not do anything until you pray and ask God’s guidance and then have your boundary and let no one force you to cross it, because once a personal boundary is crossed, the enemy is one step closer to ensuring that we have no boundaries and then he will us.

COLLECT CALL FROM EGYPT, WILL YOU ACCEPT THE CHARGES?

Ever wonder what Moses went through? You know, being a prince of Egypt, brought up as an Egyptian, taught by them, trained by them and having close family bonds with them.
Moses had all of Egypt laid at his feet all that was required of him in order to live a lavish life of riches and unimaginable power was to deny his own lineage and turn his eyes away from the suffering of those in bondage.
He couldn’t do it because he was cut from a different cloth, he would forsake all of Egypt, its power and wealth bought by the blood of his true people. That he would not overlook.
He would rather go into bondage with them, than to enjoy his good life at the expense of their freedom. How many times did he hear, “You are one of us, you need to just calm down and forget this nonsense, just stay where you belong.”
Pharaoh tried his different tactics, my favorite is Exodus 10:10,
“And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.”
Classic Satan and classic control. “Oh, you don’t really want to be out there on your own, what about your loved ones? The world is a bad place and bad things will happen if we aren’t there to protect you. It is not so bad here in Egypt, just stay where you belong.”
Anyone ever felt this kind of pressure? Pretending to wish you well but letting you know that not only will you not make it in your new walk of faith but neither will those you hope to lead with you.
How can you ever leave the Egypt of this world and all you have known to follow Christ into the land he has chosen?
So as we know this story, Pharaoh decides when his logic fails, he will just get rough with them. His heart so hardened that he failed to see the hand of the one true living God at work in all this. And he failed to see all of its strength, ready to come down on him, and he failed to see the anguish it would to his own people.
Once God had forced his hand by sending the plagues ending it with the deaths of the first-born of Egypt, he finally released the Hebrew slaves, but in his stubbornness and pride he could not leave well enough alone and decided to mount his army and set out after them to bring them all kicking and screaming back to Egypt.
As the Israelite’s stood horrified as the Egyptian army grew closer and the Red Sea stood as a formidable obstacle against them. The enemy trying to convince them that they were never even meant to be free, they cried out to the Lord, who was their ever-present help.
Exodus 14: 13, 27&28: And Moses said unto the people, fear ye not, stand still, see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew you to day: For the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. and Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remaineth not so much as one of them.”
Sometimes in life when the Red Sea in view and freedom is almost certain, the spirit of Pharaoh will rear its ugly head and spew out a warning cry to try to force you to stay in Egypt, in sin, in bondage,and misery, to try to convince that you will never be free.
Remember the words of our Lord, the word that is the double-edged sword given you from God, to cut through all the powers of hell, as Jesus said, the which will never, ever prevail.
“Touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm”
Serve notice on the Pharaoh in your life, tell him to send his messengers, rally his troops, mount his chariot and prepare his battle against your soul because soon you will see the salvation of your God and Pharaoh and his host will perish in the sea as they try to pursue you.
When Egypt tries to call you back, do not accept those charges, don’t even bother picking up the phone to answer their call because the price for one conversation with them could lead to a bill you will be trying to pay off for the rest of your life!
It would be better to be speared through the back running away than to submit to life under servitude under a spiritual Pharaoh.
Let that old Navy  motto about dealing with torpedoes motto ring true in our battles today, full speed ahead.

“Lest we forget…”

“At that time, Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan king of Babylon, sent letters, and a present unto Hezekiah; for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.

And Hezekiah hearkened unto them, and shewed them all the house of his precious things (treasures), the silver, and the gold, all the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour,and all that was found in his treasures, there was NOTHING in his house, NOR in ALL his dominion that Hezekiah shewed them not

Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? (what did they say and where are they from) And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.

And he (Isaiah) said, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All the things that are in mine house have they seen, there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

And Isaiah said unto Hezekiah, Hear the word of the lord, Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried away into Babylon, nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.” 2 Kings 20:13-17

That was quite a trap, notice the plural of letter, nothing like his good old friend or more to the point, those whom he was already trying to “play nice” with, the Babylonians checking him out seeing how he was doing because they knew he had not been well.

Quite true, so unwell if fact that God had just extended his life, but now with the attention he craved and desire to impress he had in fact invited in the very enemy that would devastate their nation and not only were they invited they were given the grand tour of everything, everything that was held precious, dear, and above all, even what should have been kept most secret, the armour was made known.

Can you only imagine the glee, the laughter in the hearts of the Babylonians once they knew every treasure, every ounce of substance, and most assuredly every possible defense that Hezekiah had?

And you know maybe he just felt like, well, it’s okay, their not really that dangerous, or maybe, he was like, well they may be ruthless conquers but that won’t be like that with me, after all if we can all be “on the same side” a few differences won’t matter. It DID matter and it has always mattered and it will ALWAYS matter.

Enemies are enemies even while pretending to care about you only to know what is there for the taking.

And honestly, social media has all but destroyed us and if we don’t wake up soon , we will be destroyed. We have become like Hezekiah, we have put our hearts and souls, those “precious things” on display for the entire world to see, people, thousands and in some cases millions of people seeing every area of our lives and what truly horrifies me, is as a nation, we are displaying all the hate, mistrust, indifference fighting against each other, in battles that can only be fought through God and that only God can change those darkened hearts.

Which is why we are so warned by Jesus, Matthew 7:6: Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend (tear) you.”

There are countless scriptures on this, you can not reason with someone who has not been spiritually enlightened and they will only attack us farther, there is no changing minds that are blinded and darkened by the enemy and that does not mean to fail to speak for truth and justice. We also must very careful of the snares of lesser of two evils, there is evil, there is good and two wrongs don’t make a right and ends do not justify means.

We are to weigh every single action on the Word of God, not that we always meet this mark, not many of us do, I try and often fail to hit that mark myself, that is why are we human, but we must try and the reason this is so important is this, we can often while in pain and distress create alliances that will, like in the case of Hezekiah cost us more than we would ever willingly pay

We often forget during times of turmoil and unrest is the simple truth that while we are busy being each others enemies, real or perceived, that we collectively have common enemies, and satan has done such  a job with divide and conquer that even the most innocent word or miscommunication can have every word or action being viewed as an attack, we can not have thoughts, feelings, or opinions that differ without being labeled and individuality completely lost because we are categorized, stereotyping each other with the same typecast that we accuse others of, the names may be different but still the exact same action.

And now for what we are totaling forgetting, just as Hezekiah forgot, sure these guys may seem to support you at the moment and sometimes when you’ve been down that can seem like a welcome comfort but while we are showing the treasures of our house, we as Americans still have some serious enemies, and a little dose of reality right here, they do not care, they do not care that we are black, white, american Indian, Mexican-american, Asian American, Jewish, Christian, any documentation or no denomination or not even believe at all. Rich, poor, old, young, chick, guy, straight, or gay and I will tell you want they do care about, that in the enemies opinion,  whether we act like it or not, believe it or not, we are ALL the same

And to sound a little like an editor once answering a child’s letter addressing the existence of Claus, but our question is of not so whimsical a topic, YES AMERICA, YOU DO HAVE ENEMIES and while you are hating each other those enemies are watching and they do not care what you think, what you feel, they hate you because you are AMERICAN. 

We have all been hurt, wounded, and oppressed in one form or the other and I will never deny that and we still are, that is why we have ashes and thorns. ALL of us, people are just mean and there will be mean people in this world until Jesus Christ comes and cleans house which He soon to do, but in the mean time we need to remember a little something,we still have been blessed to live a nation that we are FREE, we can say whatever we want without the fear of retaliation and that does not mean we need to say everything we feel, because often what is said should have never been said at all.

The freedom we are taking for granted was given us from God and we need to appreciate that freedom and do a little less screaming and take a look around the world at what others endure, I can tell you a lot about the backlash and rejection being a pants clad, makeup wearing female preacher in the South will get ya, but I can be thankful knowing that even with the good ol’ boys wagging me down, that I am still free to do as God leads me and I have blessed sisters the world over that would be executed if they dared mention aloud the name of Jesus.

We are blessed to have our Bibles and our churches when our brothers and sisters risk dying for the choice to follow the Gospel. We are blessed to have water, food, or at least access to it when we are in need and many the world over a literally dying of starvation and the threat now is horrifying.

Wake up and realize who is really at work in our country because some of the truest words a human ever muttered were truly “UNITED we stand DIVIDED we fall” and none of this is going to stop the social media and the forces that would spread but it can stop at us, just stop, our job on this earth is to lead others to Jesus and His Kingdom is not of this world and there will be no peace on this earth until that Kingdom comes, but the peace, love, and light you choose to give to another in the midst of all these things will reflect that Kingdom. 

We are here and being here we need to appreciate what we have now and be mindful of those who would love to see us fall, because we do stand for freedom and we do have rights, rights that others in many countries would love to have and I will leave you with these words, God wants to take us all to that “good land”, God wants us to have peace, joy, and love in Him.

“For the Lord God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of the valleys and hills.

And of the wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates, a land of olive oil,and honey;

A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.

When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 

Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues,which I command thee this day.” Deuteronomy 8:7-11

Well, we know for a surety many, many already have and many others have sold out the Gospel for the candy version and we see the fruits of that and if we don’t get a grip on our current situation I am afraid will we also see those fruits and pray, pray that God will bless our land and that HIS truth will bring the changes that truly need to come.  All the things o this world will fade away and all the heartache and sorrow with that when Jesus wipes every tear away but heaven and hell are eternal, do’t let this world ever make lose sight of that.
