Silence in Heaven

When heaven goes silent let the whole world take notice. Let God’s elect children press on with the beautiful memories that changed their lives forever. With every memory, it will be like a blessing, that solidifies their abiding trust in God. With every memory, the joy leaps within their hearts as peace fills the empty holes left by those who have passed on before them. They have learned how to cherish the silence, remembering the still small voice from God that they had heard so loudly in the depths of their hearts. It had been prophesied more than two thousand years ago that heaven would go silent briefly just before the end, as the seventh seal, the seventh trumpet, and the seventh bowl of God’s wrath simultaneously brings the world to an end. For many, this will be a frightful silence bringing forth the consummation of all things. It is the Lamb of God who opened the seventh seal as each event of the seals, trumpets, and bowls of God’s wrath unfolded simultaneously growing worse through each age from the resurrection of Christ to His return in glory to catch up all of His elect children. Let’s not lockup the encouraging truth in the Book of Revelation needed for each age.

Although the silence will be very brief, it will seem like only a half hour when completed. The Alpha and the Omega is present in every time from beginning to end preparing God’s faithful children for this momentous event when time, from an earthly perspective, will be no more. So, what is happening during this time when heaven is silent? There is a great offering filled with much incense along with the prayers from all the saints cast upon the golden altar before the throne of God. Even during this time of silence from heaven, the prayers from all God’s beloved children rise to heaven as a final offering which returned to earth as peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake (Revelation 8:2-5) to usher in the end. Heaven may be silent, but every prayer from the saints of God will continue to have a powerful impact upon fallen humanity and those who have strayed from the path of righteousness. One of the most important things we can do during the tribulation is to pray earnestly for every soul, especially for those who struggle with unrighteousness. There is great power in prayer to convict, to heal, and to lead God’s elect children to repent.

We must be great encouragers when heaven appears silent among many of God’s children, for this will be a great time of struggle when all they hear is the many conspiracy theories and contradicting voices from the world. We must encourage them to remember the truth, which will be like a bright light overcoming the darkness in their souls. Only the truth will set them free from the shackles of the enemy who has taken them captive by filling the entire world with his lies. Although the great days of shouting the uncensored truth from the world’s many platforms and in the many assembled churches are quickly passing away, nothing should stop us from whispering the truth into the ears of humanity. Nothing should stop us from praying for each soul that we encounter. Nothing should stop us from demonstrating our self-giving love to others. Nothing should stop us from letting our light shine forth with great joy bursting forth from our hearts. Nothing can stop us from turning the other cheek and going the extra mile. Nothing can stop us from trying to release the captives from their prison of immorality sanctioned by the fallen world. Let us press on with the belief that our prayers will not go unheard as they are added to the incense and cast upon the throne in heaven. There is great power in prayer.

With the dawning of every new day all of God’s elect children, from around the world, will meet with the Alpha and the Omega allowing Him to resurrect the many beautiful memories of waking with Him every moment of every day. These precious memories will carry us through the darkest of days. We must not allow the ugliness and foulness of the world to pull us down into the pit of despair. We must not allow the meanness of others to resurrect thoughts of revenge or harbor feelings of unforgiveness. We must not allow the many lies and conspiracy theories to lead us down a very dark and dangerous path, which will drive us further away from the truth. It’s only the truth that will keep us strong and free from the lies of the enemy. The truth has not changed. The truth is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. The moment we start adding senseless doctrine to our beliefs, then it dilutes the truth. The truth must always start with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ who pathed the way to a brand-new life in Him. Some have gotten so far afield with all their beliefs that they have forgotten the simple truth about our transformation in Christ.

Even in the darkest days when heaven seems silent, we must continue our transformation in Christ, or we will slip deeper into the abyss of immortality. The deeper we slip into immortality the more we become slaves of the devil leading us to the altar of the Antichrist. The only way we can truly stop the descent into immorality is to continue our transformation in Christ. Unfortunately, many believe they can control or limit their immorality to acceptable limits being satisfied with their Christianity. They will loudly protest that they are not so bad and that no one better judge them. They have become comfortable in their beliefs and have no desire to press on to their higher calling in Christ Jesus. The Bible describes these souls as lukewarm Christians. Jesus Christ, the Alpha and the Omega, counsels them to put off the old, tarnished life, and put on the new garments of a life that is being transformed in Christ. Then He says, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:19). The Lamb of God has not forgotten His lukewarm children destined for a life of misery and even the possibility of expulsion from paradise, so He will reprove and discipline them hoping that they will be zealous and repent. Let us continue our prayers for every soul but especially for God’s lukewarm children who are missing out on the glories of their new life in Christ.

We will know with all assurance that we are on the path of transformation when we readily observe the old life of immortality falling off and the new life in Christ being put on day by day. Transformation is a process, which continues every day of our lives. This is not learning how to play church or learning a new sacred doctrine every day. It is not being controlled by our timepieces, technology, and scientific discovery. Transformation is walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ every moment of every day. This is accomplished by keeping in step with the Spirit. The Bible says, “If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).  When we keep in step with the Spirit then we will produce the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law (see Galatians 5:22-23, ESV). We must ask ourselves; can we observe this Spiritual fruit in our lives? Step by step the Spiritual fruit will grow more robust being displayed in every moment of our lives touching those around us in a very powerful way. Although heaven may appear to go silent for many as we approach the end, they must not let it stop their transformation in Christ that will observe the richest blessings and the most glorious miracles this side of heaven. When heaven goes silent the world will tremble, but God’s children will rejoice that they can feel His presence in the midst of the silence. All glory to God.

Bringing Peace Out of Chaos

The coming one known by many different names will bring peace out of chaos. Humanity has witnessed the horror of religious wars for thousands of years. The Muslim hordes have faithfully followed the second woe in the book of Revelation by bringing death and destruction to millions since its founding in the sixth century. Even today it is relentlessly striking at the heels of other religions to convert or destroy. Its primary objective is the annihilation of the state of Israel, to occupy their Holy Mount and all the land of Palestine from the river to the sea. We have witnessed the protests against the Catholic Church spawning numerous Protestant denominations, but this pales in comparison to the chaos caused by the Muslim hordes now occupying or residing in nearly every country in the world seen by their latest bloody protests. This is truly a woe and a blight against humanity. Antisemitism has run rampant in the world adding to the chaos. Well, one is coming soon that will end this chaos bringing forth a new kind of peace. The Muslims call him Al-Masih ad-Dajjal and Christians call him the Antichrist or the Beast in the Book of Revelation. Continue reading Bringing Peace Out of Chaos

Evil Will Unleash an Unimaginable Chaos

We wrote previously about how the image of the beast would bring forth the unity of thought and opinions to lead all of humanity to worship the beast or the Antichrist. Before that happens Satan and the powers of darkness will unleash unimaginable chaos on planet Earth (John 10:10, Revelation 12:12,17). We have written a lot about the increase in global warming, natural disasters, wars, and famines. We have written a lot about the increase in mental illnesses, lawlessness, pandemics, and the great falling away. It is the coming together of all these tragedies that will create unimaginable chaos beyond anything the world has ever witnessed. For years we have only seen bits and pieces of this total chaos by reporting only the latest news stories selected by the gatekeepers to not overwhelm the people. Much was kept secret to prevent pandemonium. At this point, we have not experienced all of it at the same time, which would bring forth total chaos driving many to complete lawlessness, insanity, or suicide. However, this is all quickly changing for the world is now being overwhelmed by every news story concerning weather events, natural disasters, wars, and predicting the next pandemic. Add to this all the false prophets predicting things that are not biblical and you have a recipe for disaster. Continue reading Evil Will Unleash an Unimaginable Chaos

The Coming Image of the Beast

Israel and the Jewish people are still expecting the Messiah because they have rejected Jesus Christ as the true Messiah. Now that the Jewish people are firmly planted back in the Holy Land, the land of their ancestors, their expectation has grown more pronounced. Many of the conservative majority want all the land from the river to the sea. Some want to see their Temple rebuilt in its original location on the Holy Mount. Although this may seem quite impossible at this juncture, there is one coming who could easily make it a reality. The Jewish people have made deep inroads into many countries, especially in America. They have become entrenched in leadership roles in government, entertainment, education, and technology. Their technological advancements in Israel and their host countries are unprecedented. Although they may appear to be hated by every nation because of their economic advancements, it only appears that way. The diaspora has made them a viable part of every country. Because of their religious roots, they are deeply loved by the Christian community. No matter what corner of the world they are in, their national ambitions have not changed as they fervently anticipate the arrival of their messiah, yet they are unaware that he is the Beast in the book of Revelation (Revelation 13:11-18).

Stepping Into the Light of His Glory

There was a time when I was young and foolish riding on the winds of desire and prosperity, now I am old, rejoicing only in the light of His glory. We all have a story to tell. Some stories would shock our sensibilities while others might help us to recall our own struggles if we were honest. Contrary to our earlier experiences in the home of our blessed parents we all tend to go in our own direction realized by the eventual outcome of our siblings and childhood friends. The winds of change can be harsh and unforgiving in a world that is quickly rejecting the moral imperatives of our religious upbringing. We all have a story to tell even if some of our anchors are more secure than others in our early ethical teachings about what is right and wrong. As we recall the horror of wrong choices it’s most difficult to put them into words, but essential to realize just how far we have come by the grace of God. Being cast into a world of lawlessness and unimaginable evil it’s a wonder that my very brief homelessness on the streets of New York City didn’t leave an irrevocable mark on my consciousness. Each step of the way, unknown at the time, God gracefully brought forth deliverance from the horrific consequences of a life gone astray. Although there would be more years ahead of wrong choices and their inevitable consequences, in time the path ahead would become clear. Continue reading Stepping Into the Light of His Glory
