Protect Thyself

The motive for everything God does is to bring His children closer to Him—that’s how much He loves us—He is our Father and He is a jealous God (Ex.20:5).  Whatever we place our hearts on more than Him, is an offense to Him. One of the greatest offenses is riches.

22 Ye do not remember the Lord your God in the things with which he hath blessed you, but ye do always remember your riches, not to thank the Lord your God for them; yea, your hearts are not drawn out unto the Lord, but they do swell with great pride, unto boasting, and unto great swelling, envyings, strifes, malice, persecutions, and murders, and all manner of iniquities. (Helaman 13:22)

God will not allow His children to forever forget Him and thus He will allow certain coming circumstances to take happen that will force us to remember Him:

32 And in the days of your poverty ye shall cry unto the Lord; and in vain shall ye cry, for your desolation is already come upon you, and your destruction is made sure; and then shall ye weep and howl in that day, saith the Lord of Hosts. And then shall ye lament, and say: O that I had repented (i.e. turned to God) (Helaman 13:32)

What is going to happen? Babylon—the pursuit of wealth—is going to be judged, or in other words, reconciled to itself as did ancient Rome; society with all its intricate parts will collapse:

13 And the Lord’s anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the Lord, was consumed. (Numbers 32:13)

The wicked will destroy themselves and the few that are left will be destroyed by the righteous. The righteous who stand and fight will overcome the wicked and no weapon that is formed against them will prosper:

14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. (Isaiah 54:14–17)

The righteous who love God, who do always remember Him and have placed their hope and faith in Him will during the coming collapse stand firm and they will execute God’s justice upon the wicked. The wicked will congregate and become enclaves of wicked. They will loot on a daily basis, seek recruits, and murder the righteous, or anyone who stands against them.

During this time evil will naturally increase due to the increase of the mental and emotional states of despair, fear, and hopelessness, which are the modus operandi of Satan and his demonic host. This is why demons will be able to infest most of society at that time—during the collapse when lawlessness reigns, but before recovery, law and order returns.

37 Behold, we are surrounded by demons, yea, we are encircled about by the angels of him who hath sought to destroy our souls. Behold, our iniquities are great. O Lord, canst thou not turn away thine anger from us? And this shall be our language in those days. (Helaman 13:37)

Devils know who is not remembering God and walking in disobedience to Him. When God allows this circumstance of the removal of the false god (riches/Babylon), THEN we will cry and morn, BUT it will be TOO LATE. Our desolation will have already come, it is what will humble us, the loss of all wealth. Truly during this time our language will be:

  • Crying
  • Weeping
  • Howling
  • Lamenting
  • Repentance

At that time, when we are seriously crying, mourning, and lamenting our loss—GOD WILL NOT HEAR! We all will “reap what we have sown” (Job 4:8) AND demons will pounce upon us without mercy. These will be the dark days which lead to the prophesied Millennium of Peace. During that time, evil, both its energy and direct influence will be rabid and Believers MUST PROTECT THEMSELVES by using the following:

  • Armour of God via God’s Word
  • Warrior Scent
  • Holy Salt
  • Chi Rho

It will happen fast and it will be catastrophic:

Pastor Lindsey Williams (lindseywilliams.net) has said that the worlds’ elite are going to bring about a global economic collapse. He said they did a trial run back in June 19-23, 2013 to see how well they could effect interest rates and learned that they could, if they wanted to, cause a total economic collapse worldwide within 24 hours. It would begin in America and domino from there. (Arlin E. Nusbaum, Global Reset, Alpha & Omega Publishing, May 2015, p. 3)

And

“According to the NAS, ‘Irrecoverable loss of critical operating data and essential records on a large scale would likely result in catastrophic and irreversible damage to U.S. society.” (Nusbaum, p. 44)

“A long term blackout that, according to the EMP Commission, could kill up to 9 in 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.” (Nusbaum, p. 58; http://washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/15pry-protecting-american-from-an-electromagnet)

Those who allowed this to happen will be called-out and dealt with harshly, these are people who have only been thinking about themselves, their success and wealth, i.e. lawmakers, churches, big business, in short: any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie (Rev. 21:27).

 

Sheep

Most of us have heard of the Parable of the Good Shepherd in which Our Lord describes the differences between a good shepherd and an hireling. What is usually missed however is its relevance to current paid clergy. Jesus, knowing that His words would be recorded for all time and passed down through the ages often spoke for the benefit of future readers, not current disciples.

He often spoke of future events—for our benefit also—saying there would come false teachers, false apostles, and false prophets. The Parable of the Good Shepherd can be viewed as a prophecy for our time:

1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. (John 10:1–16)

Most of the time readers do take note of the Good Shepherd and the sheep references but fail to notice the hireling who is being juxtaposed with the Good Shepherd. Whereas Jesus came to know the Father which then allowed Him to have great love for the sheep, even to the point of laying down His life for them, those who enter the ministry for money (because they can’t find other work), or who are staying in the ministry for the money (again, because they can’t find other employment) are like the thieves who know neither the Father nor the Son, and are not doing it out of love; they run when things get tough, e.g. requests for exorcisms, drug interventions, testifying in court, taking into their homes the homeless, etc.

Like the Days of Noah

But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:37)

But whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; (1 Corinthians 13:8)

Introduction

When we read the phrase “as in the days of Noah”, what does it really mean for us? What were those days like? There have been a number of different interpretations, or should I say aspects that people have focused on: there is the disaster aspect, being ready, giants returning, fallen angels returning, and even the hybridization of humans. Which of those Our Lord meant for us to focus upon is open to interpretation.

The question becomes, what of those different areas of focus are supported by other scriptures? Authors who have written about the different scenarios have accumulated what they believe are supporting scriptures, therefore, each area of focus appears to have some merit, whether that was our Lord’s original intention or not.

For the purposes of this post, the emphasis will be on the topic of fallen angels and on a new, never before discussed aspect. Those who focus upon the fallen angel viewpoint, believe those angels who originally fell, will be the ones returning. The view I am putting forth now is that the fallen angels who will be coming have not fallen yet. That’s right. What assurances do we have that future angelic defections will not happen? There aren’t any; God respects free agency above all else, and apparently that includes angels.

Fallen Angels

According to what we do know, there was the initial rebellion when Lucifer fell and became Satan, taking with him a significant number of other angelic and created beings (one-third apostatized and departed). Then there was another defection “in the days of Noah” when :

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:1–4)

Other translations use the word Nephilim in place of giants. What is assumed by many (but not actually stated in the text) is that it was the Nephilim who “took” the women and “had children” that were giants. The difficulty in believing the Nephilim were fallen angels is the fact that angels are incapable of reproducing. So the Nephilim must have come from somewhere else and are a different class of beings who were capable of reproduction. 

Angel Defined

The word angel in its more specific definition is messenger, which could apply to any of number of other created beings who are likewise on assignments for God. For example, Elijah was taken up in a chariot and never tasted death. He then came as a messenger to Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration and could be viewed as an “angel” during that mission. This was explicitly stated during John’s encounter with an angel:

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (Revelation 19:10)

Thus we see that the term “fallen angel” can include beings other than the traditional angel. In the strict meaning of the word, the Nephilim, who were on assignment from God, fell, which means they were, according to the definition “fallen angels.” But because they could co-create, they were not angels in the traditional sense. What the Nephilim did when they fell totally disrupted life on earth and eventually led to the flood.

Premise

The premise of this post is this – God trusts His angels, His children, and other created beings, particularly those in positions of leadership, and He probably would not intervene until after they committed a crime (as with the flood). And because God wants to be known as merciful, He may give them ample time (in earth time this could be hundreds of years, who knows) to turn back (repent) before stepping in. In the case of the Nephilim we don’t know how many of them repented (if any did) and we don’t know if they or their offspring could be killed by the flood or if they had to be physically removed like this scripture says:

4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; (2 Peter 2:4–5)

One Final Revolt

What percent of humans are on the side of God, including the living and the dead? Pastor Howard Pittman was allowed during his Near Death Experience to observe how many of the dead are making it into Heaven at any given time. He stated these numbers are 50 out of 2000, which is 2.5 percent; the rest are on the side of darkness. One of the unfortunate side-effects when people turn to darkness and give their allegiance to Satan (directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly) is he grows stronger.

“As it is on earth (with spirit beings), so it is in Heaven.”

Satan by default is not strong on earth, he only becomes strong when people think on him, whether directly or indirectly. The same is true where he dwells in the spirit realm. It is possible that with so many turning to Satan (directly or indirectly) that his strength has grown over the millennia to become stronger than he originally was. He may be extremely powerful (including aspects of breadth and depth) now and the angels would be very aware of this and some may chose to change sides, it’s happened before.

Are there any prophecies besides what the historical narrative suggests that there will come not just a Final Battle, but a Final Revolt?

Prophecies

These prophecies may have relevance to a Final Revolt:

29 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: (Matthew 24:29)

As with most scriptures, this can be read from a physical or spiritual viewpoint. Here are some other star verses that imply a spiritual meaning for stars, and in particular that they represent angels:

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (Isaiah 14:13)

9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. (Daniel 8:9–10)

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. (Revelation 6:13)

1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to HIM was given the key of the bottomless pit. (Revelation 9:1)

20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. (Revelation 1:20)

From those scriptures we see that stars have reference to host and angels. Host is another word for multitude as in a “multitude of angels”:

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, (Luke 2:13)

1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. (Malachi 4:1)

The host of heaven.—Probably meaning the stars, as Jeremiah 33:22, (Ellicott’s Commentary)

22 As the host [stars] of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. (Jeremiah 33:22)

In the Book of Enoch, which, since it is modeled on this book, furnishes us with the earliest commentary on it, we find the stars are invariably the symbol of the angels. When we pass to the Book of Revelation, we find the same thing. (Pulpit Commentary)

Thus, Daniel 8:10 implies that stars or angels will be overpowered by another more powerful being and Revelation 6:13 implies that some stars or angels will defect on their own because it says they leave Heaven (their natural abode) in an “untimely fashion.” When so many angels defect, it will cause, according to the prophecies, “the powers of Heaven” to be “shaken.” Now it does not say that they will collapse, but it does say they will be “shaken”:

29 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: (Matthew 24:29)

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. (Mark 13:25)

26 Men’s 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 21:26)

It is important to note that it says the “powers of heaven” and not the “heavens” themselves will be shaken for there are prophecies that say the earth and the heavens will be shaken and it should not be assumed that the two sets of prophecies are speaking of the same thing. One may ask, “What could possible shake the very powers of Heaven itself”? For those who have visited Heaven, they described giant walls with gates, and giant warring angels standing by which begs the question, “If a threat to God exists out there, how large is it?

Walls & Gates

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: (Revelation 21:10–12)

Movies

One may also ask, “How did the idea get into the human consciousness that God can be dethroned, as portrayed in recent movies?” The latest version of Superman has him being defeated. I guess the idea remains, since the fall of Lucifer.

Gather Elect

In support of the Premise that there will come one Last Revolt by the angels (and other heavenly created beings of God) consider the following verse:

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:31)

What has traditionally been viewed as a Rapture verse can now be viewed in a different light. The first part of the verse (gather his elect) has long overshadowed the second part (from one end of heaven to the other) which is speaking of something entirely different. Wheres The Rapture is about taking people from earth up to Heaven, the second part of this verse is referring to people (God’s elect) who are ALREADY in Heaven, and gathering those for a battle of sorts. 

Who might some of these elect be whom God is planning to gather from the four winds of Heaven to help?

Ancient of Days

Who is the Ancient of Days spoken of by the prophet Daniel, who will come to assist Believers?

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. (Daniel 7:21–22)

The speculation has been that it is Father God, but when read in context, it could not be Father God for it says Jesus comes to this Ancient of Days who is already on the earth:

9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (Daniel 7)

The only other ancient being that we know of is Father Adam who is a resurrected being. It has been promised he will return with other resurrected beings and reign with Jesus throughout the Millennium of Peace:

6 Blessed and holy is he that 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 a thousand years. (Revelation 20:6)

The following prophecy addresses the work of Father Adam:

1 Behold, I will send my messenger [Father Adam], and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness. (Malachi 3:1–3)

John the Baptist prepared the way before Our Lord the first time that He came, but people fail to acknowledge that he had many disciples who helped him (Lk.11:1; Jn.1:35, 3:25). Father Adam will come to prepare the way this time and like John, he will have many helpers to assist him.

A key word that crosses with the prophecy of Daniel 7 is that he will “sit”:

9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit (Daniel 7)

We most often associate holiness with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because He was sinless, but that should not exclude the possibility that there are others who were nearly sinless. The only sin we know that Adam and Eve committed happened in the Garden of Eden, and they lived a very long time. To live righteously for 900 years is a long time and could justify his title and the prophecy.

The reference to the sons of Levi will make better sense if we review what they did:

4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.
5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.
8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 2:4–8)

Since the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, Believers are considered priests (or they are supposed to be) therefore the prophecy of Malachi applies to each of us. We are to be true to what the New Law and Covenant says, and our teachers and ministers should be the most faithful among us. Instead, we find them teaching, practicing, and doing things that have no scriptural basis (organized religion) which has certainly led to divisions among Believers.

The following gives specifics about who Father Adam and Our Lord are particularly upset with:

5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts.
6 For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:5–6)

The glory of Our Lord will be revealed and it will be greatly tuned against:

  • witches, warlocks, satanists
  • fornicators, people living in sin
  • people living a lie, and those who lie
  • people who take advantage of others so they can live high on the hog while others don’t
  • people who have no fear of God

Translated Beings

We can expect other translated beings to return including Enoch, Elijah, Esdras, John, and others:

14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 1:14–15)

9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. (Isaiah 13:9)

Timing

When might these things take place? This is a possible timeline:

1 Sun and moon are darkened because of the stars/angels defecting:

29 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: (Matthew 24:29)

A similar thing happened when Jesus was betrayed on the cross:

32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Mark 15:32–35)

2. Then shall appear The Sign of Jesus’ coming:

30 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. (Matthew 24:30)

Everyone will see the newly arrived Sign, it will be bright, and no doubt experts will measure its power the same way they do the Sun, and might try to give us an estimate of how powerful it is. Considering the sign is the glory of Jesus, and everyone will see it, everyone will be affected by it spiritually just as if they were standing before the throne of God (to a lesser degree of course). The only people who will mourn the sign will be the disobedient. Anyone who has been true to their conscience will be at PEACE, they will thrive. This will be the beginning of the prophesied wealth transfer from the unrepentant to the faithful.

3. He then sends His faithful angels to gather the rest of the elect from the four corners of Heaven.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:31)

The Sign will be the result of the New Jerusalem leaving it’s abode in Heaven and coming midway to earth. The Elect throughout the universe will be invited to a gathering there.

4. The wicked will be removed shortly after this just like the wicked were removed in the Great Flood in Noah’s day:

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. (Matthew 24:37–41)

Of course the people at that time were not entirely surprised. Noah had warned them for many years and demonstrated his faith by building an ark. Christians have been warning the world for a long time about the coming of Jesus.

5. After the Sign is given, how much more time will God allow further warnings to be given? This will no doubt be the trigger for his earthly army – The Army of the Lord to go forth. Despite this marvelous sign, the defiant, the fence-sitters, and the weak in spirit will still defy God, and He in His great mercy will give more and more signs until all sign-related prophecies have been fulfilled. Then the hammer will fall as in the flood and the uncooperative will be systematically removed.

6.This will be the ultimate test for God to see who He can trust, thus the final part of this prophecy is about who God will place in positions of leadership during The Millennium:

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. (Matthew 24:45–47)

Effects

It’s up to each person how they interpret scripture and I’m sure there were a great many plans and prophecies in Noah’s time that became interrupted by the unexpected rebellion of God’s servants. If, and I say if another rebellion were to happen, when would be a key time for it to develop? It’s conceivable it could begin just before God’s Final Act in an attempt to thwart it. Is it possible this is where we are now?

As has been noted by a number of Believers, many modern prophets have made prophetic statements that have not come to pass. Either they are getting inaccurate information by God’s angels, or, the darkness is so great that said prophecies are not able to materialize. If an angel is planning to defect, how long might that angel thwart God’s plans and objectives by barely tweaking a vision, dream, or revelation just to play with the minds of Believers causing them to become disheartened; or for their family and friends with whom they’ve shared such things to lose faith?

There is a reason that Paul said we will judge angels:

3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? (1 Corinthians 6:3)

Why would we judge angels unless they have freedom as we do, and thus a stewardship with how they carry out God’s will in someone’s life. We don’t hear about these things because as a rule, no one should have to second guess all correspondences from God. Is it possible for The Holy Ghost himself to defect? If one-third of the angels defected, what is to say that one-third of the Godhead has not or will not defect?

Consider all the prophecies of a deception to come in the last days that would delude even the elect of God. How could God’s elect, who ARE hearing His voice (or should I say the voice of The Holy Ghost and/or angels) be deceived unless it was coming from an insider who had turned but not gotten caught? Are these the questions of someone being sacrilegious or a realist? This type of deception would be of the highest order if the Elect could be deceived.

We are not talking about the usual evidence of an antichrist such as denying that Jesus came in the flesh, or overtly worshiping Satan, but instead these would be minor tweaks that could go entirely undetected in a spirit-filled meeting of fellow believers. The presence of God is still there, there’s just a minor form of misinformation given, or something similar:

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24)

24 That there will be false Christs and false prophets. They will show great signs and wonders so that many will be misled. This includes some of the chosen ones. (Matthew 24:24 NSB)

 Jesus escorted Mary K. Baxter through Hell for 3 hours each night, for 30 nights. Many of those whom Jesus showed to Mary (which she was commanded to write and share with the world) were ex-ministers who, for the love of money, did bring in damnable heresies as was prophesied which did result in the loss of many souls from going into the Kingdom of God. These were not isolated cases, there were many ministers, pastors, priests, and evangelists who even defected after a personal visit and warning from Jesus and /or an angel.

All of Christianity, according to Jesus, Paul, John, and others, would apostatize because of sneaky, conniving, false spirits. This includes deceiving angels who had already defected, or who are going to abandon their allegiance to God.

29 I know that false teachers, like vicious wolves, will come in among you after I leave, not sparing the flock. (Acts 20:29 NLT)

17 Those false teachers are so eager to win your favor, but their intentions are not good. They are trying to shut you off from me so that you will pay attention only to them. (Galatians 4:17 NLT)

19 Although these false teachers promise such people freedom, they themselves are enslaved to immorality. For whatever a person succumbs to, to that he is enslaved. (2 Peter 2:19 NET)

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. (2 Peter 2:1–3)

Implied

So what is being implied by both the history lesson and prophecies given? The conclusion is this: all prophecies that have been given, both ancient and modern may be preempted by a wide-scale defection such as happened several times before. We cannot expect things to NOT get messy in the Final Episode of the manifesting presence of the Sons of God. 

2 Beloved, now are we children of God, and what we shall be has not yet been manifested; we know that if it is manifested we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. (1 John 3:2 DBT)

 

Come To Judge

It has been proclaimed for thousands of years that a “preliminary” Day of Judgment will come to the people of this earth; that time is now:

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. (Psalms 96:11–13)

 But why does the Psalmist say to “rejoice” and the earth to be “glad”? Won’t this preliminary judgment be a terrible thing? Let’s look at the last sentence again:

13 …he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. (Psalms 96:13)

The coming preliminary judgment will only be “bad” to those that are “bad” and “good” to those that are “good.” Why is it only a “preliminary” judgment and why will it only be bad for the bad, and good for the good? Because God in His mercy is planning to give the inhabitants of earth a WAKE-UP CALL before the actual final judgment and how He will do that is by sending “truth”:

13 …he shall judge…the people with his truth. (Psalms 96:13)

This comes by way of the “Spirit of Truth” that is due to be poured out in great measure at any time:

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: (John 15:26)
 

After the Spirit of Truth is poured out in a great measure the inhabitants of the people of earth will realize that what they are experience from without, is the the same as within, i.e. their conscience. In other words, God is and always has been our consciences which is about to be turned back-on (for those who have turned against theirs) and amplified a thousand fold or more.

There will be great weeping and mourning as the wicked realize who they betrayed when they compromised their consciences. There will be a need for Believers at that time to help, lead, and teach the wounded and weary and get them through the repentance process and back inline with their consciences, the Spirit or Truth, and God!

1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods. (Psalms 97)

 

 

John 4

In the following dialogue at Jacob’s Well between Jesus and the Samaritan woman we find an exchange that is pertinent to our day and time. There are several teaching elements that can be drawn upon here, but let’s review the exchange AFTER they broke the ice and she felt safe to speak freely.

5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4)

Her criticism of Judaism was that they claimed God could only be worshiped in one place – Jerusalem.

Sound familiar?

Don’t Christians teach and demonstrate by their actions that a person must go to a particular place (i.e. church) to worship God? Haven’t they shown by their actions by building churches among remote tribes that “in that building is God”? The problem with this approach is who controls it? Is it man or a religion, or is it God? It is man, man is flawed, Jesus never said to build a church EVER.Neither did any of the apostles and Paul ministered for over 30 years and never once taught nor demonstrated the old Judaic way of building a structure (ex. synagogue or temple) and go there to worship God.

Again, what was the first thing expressed by this non-Jewish woman to Rabbi Jesus? The Jewish claim there was only one place to worship God. Jesus did not refute that that was the case, but affirmed it no longer needed to be that way! The day had come when people did not need to go to a particular place in order to worship God anymore. Jesus went on to explain why, teaching her that God is actually a spirit and can be worshiped in spirit (and truth).

He already explained to the woman that within her was God’s Spirit and that it could flow like a river through her if she:

a. Communed with God within her.

b. Pursued truth (God’s Holy Word).

Are we conducting ourselves as Jesus prescribed 2000 years ago? No. There is much to be undone so the public today, like the woman at the well back then, no longer believe that a person must go a physical place i.e. church to commune with God.

Religion of Slavery

In the coming days The Army of the Lord will confront naysayers, the defiant, and anyone who willfully chooses to disobey God. God’s camp is based in freedom, love, and what is fair for everyone. It has always been this way. In some instances, He chose a group to exemplify His love and they were held to a higher standard. 

This included certain particulars (tenets) when compiled together we it a “religion.” The Jews are one example, everyone else is expected to abide by the Golden Rule.

The Golden Rule system of life is, by all accounts, the most lenient and freest of all systems of religion. And if a person correctly abides by the Golden Rule, they are guaranteed passage into Heaven where they will enjoy a similar environment. Contrast this arrangement with the ugly alternative – self-appointed Enemies of God. The Enemies of God are those who disavow the Golden Rule, they are: liars, thieves, cheaters, whoremongers, murderers, etc.

A example of the Golden Rule is laboring by the “sweat of your brow” rather than taking what is not yours. Haters of love, i.e. haters of the true God seek shortcuts when they make contracts with the Devil. What system, arrangement, or religion does the Devil have? His is the “Religion of Slavery.” Whereas the true God allows us to do whatever we want so long as it does not break the Golden Rule, the false god requires obedience to whatever he says and is bound by no rules.

Speaking of the Afterlife, the Haters of God are so blind they never think to ask where they will go in the Afterlife and what it will be like there. God has provided many testimonies and promises, both ancient and modern of what His provided Afterlife is like and people look forward to live there. Where are the testimonies and promises (ancient or modern) of what type of Afterlife the Devil offers? There aren’t any.

The contempt his slaves have for simple Common Sense is staggering. Why would you sell your soul and become a slave to a liar who can offer nothing in the Afterlife? Here’s a wake-up call the soldiers in The Army of the Lord can offer the shortsighted:

  • Do you enjoy seeing blue skies? You’ll never see them in hell – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy seeing the sun, moon, stars, and unlimited space? You’ll never see those again, only a cramped jail space in hell – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy the fresh air? You will never experience a breath of fresh air – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy a cool breeze? You will never experience a cool breeze – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy food? You will never enjoy another meal – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy the smell of fresh bread, freshly brewed coffee, or a rose? You will never smell anything but sulfur and rotting flesh – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy swimming, snorkeling, body surfing, or walking in the ocean, a stream, lake, or river? You will never experience any form of water – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy the sounds of nature? You will never hear those ever again – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy the snow, skiing, or hanging out in the lodge? You will never enjoy any of those – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy going on vacations and seeing the wonderful new sights? You will only see a prison cell – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy the company of friends? You will never converse with another person – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy a nice cold beer, fine wine, or champagne? Your lips and tongue will never taste any of that – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy fine clothes, different hair styles, etc.? You will never wear another piece of clothing, or don another hair style – they will all be burned off your spiritual body – forever more.
  • Do you enjoy a variety of music or perhaps can play a musical instrument? You will never hear so much as note in hell, never see, let alone hold nor play a musical instrument. Only the screams of the damned as their flesh continually burns, regrows, burns, regrows – forever more.

Such are the bona fide reports, both ancient and modern, of the future Afterlife for the Enemies of God. Worst of all, there is zero freedom in hell:

  • No recourse.
  • No hope.
  • No freedom.
  • No where to go.
  • No way to leave – forever more.

Some fringe benefits for Lovers of God are:

  • Truth
  • Promises
  • Recourse
  • Forgiveness
  • Love
  • Light
  • Life

Next time you are confronted by an Enemy of God and the Golden Rule inform them of what’s waiting for them in the Afterlife and encourage them to use some Common Sense and get on the side of the Golden Rule and use the precious blood of Jesus to blot out all traces of hate from their past so they can make it into Heaven.

Spirit Of The Lord Is Upon You

The prophecy of Isaiah 61 has long been overlooked due to the fact that Our Lord read from it (two verses only) and said, “it was fulfilled this day”:

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. (Luke 4:17–21)

A quick review of the two verses Jesus quoted reveals nothing particularly messianic. They speak about preaching and healing and that is all. The whole chapter appears to apply to The Army of the Lord more than anyone else:

1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8 For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. (Isaiah 61:1–11)
