Why Do We Follow Jesus Christ?

Not everyone follows or wants to follow God. Remember, dear friends, there was a rebellion in heaven by Satan and his fallen angels, who no longer wanted to follow God. This rebellion has continued for thousands of years and continues today on Planet Earth. Our all-powerful God could have stopped the rebellion then and He has the power and authority to stop it now. God chose not to! Simply and profoundly put, our Mighty God does not want slaves, He wants followers. As a follower of God, I may, like the great Apostles, choose to be a slave but it’s our choice. This is our choice driven by our great unyielding love for our Savior. So, why did Satan and his fallen angels decide to rebel against God, a God of love? Simply put, Satan did not want to just accept his position as “the anointed Cherub” in all his grandeur. (See Ezekiel 28:13-15). In his pride he wanted much more. The Bible says, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! … For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God … I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14). The true hallmarks of Satan are his nauseating pride and his outrageous lies. Let’s be very clear Satan is still in rebellion against God, even now upon Planet Earth, to usurp the worship of God!

This rebellion by Satan is in full swing because he knows that his time is short. His greatest desire is to have the worship and adoration of all humanity but especially from those who claim to be Christian. He will lie, cheat, and make empty promises to get their worshipful praise. He longs to hear their chants that proclaim, “We love you” or “Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” He will do all that he can to win the favor and adoration of God’s holy people and the nation of Israel. He will boast greatly of his many accomplishments caused in large part by overturning the many laws and regulations that keep big business in check. Although he may surround himself with Christians, he will not follow their God in humility speaking only the truth. If Satan is really at work in our day, then only weak, unintelligent, and godless people will be put forth as his competitors. There will be no serious thought about the sustainability of the planet. Satan will rejoice at the destruction of the planet as she burns and floods herself into oblivion. Creating peace among the nations is only an illusion. The Bible says, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (I Thessalonians 5:3).

So, my dear children, how do we stand against this Satanic rebellion that’s against God and everything holy? Let me say very clearly, any frontal attack will fail miserably, just as assuredly as this article will fall on many deaf ears. No, what’s needed is returning to our Savior’s plan. This is a plan that’s worked for over two thousand years, showing people the great wonders of following God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the Last Days! Although the door to Eternal Life is closing quickly, I believe we still have an opportunity to show people how to follow God and experience their wondrous new life in Christ. Let me give you just a few reasons why we chose to follow God. First and foremost, we believe and am confident that Christ’s death on the Cross paid for all of our sins, past, present, and future. Once we believe and turn from our sins, known as repentance, agreeing to never fall into the same sin, then God no longer remembers the sin. We have a clean slate, we are forgiven. Now God can go to work in our life as a believer. We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead to give us a new life in Christ. This faith opens the door to heaven and the indwelling Spirit to come and dwell with us; to teach us all things.

Now for the second reason we follow God through Jesus Christ. He promises to make us into a new creation. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). This is a completely different way of thinking for the modern world. Their sciences have taught them that we are a compilation of all our past experiences that define who we are. Hundreds of years have been spent developing the art of behavior modification through endless counseling and approved drug therapy, which have never been proven to work. All of these accepted teachings, also taught in our schools, are a complete contradiction of God’s masterful plan for our new life in Christ. We believe in a new life where old things truly pass away. We believe in the transformation. We believe that the indwelling Spirit is helping us, moment by moment, to put off the old life and to put on the new life in Christ, making us true followers of Jesus Christ. We actually see this work of transformation taking place in our lives by producing spiritual fruit, largely unattainable by the fallen world (See Galatians 5:22-23). We chose to follow God who has given us a new bountiful life in Christ. Every day is a new day! But that’s not all.

We follow God because the indwelling Spirit comes bearing gifts of the Spirit. These are miraculous gifts to equip us for our work in the Kingdom of God. Every believer is given his own gifts, some permanent and some temporary for only when the need arises. I have personally been given the temporary gift of healing on one occasion and the gift of casting out an evil spirit on another. We follow God through Christ for this amazing opportunity to be used in His Kingdom work. I believe my permanent gifts are preaching, teaching, and counseling all to the glory of God. Let me stress that every follower has their own gifts that must be used. Although we may be a bit timid and even afraid to step out in faith to use our gifts, God will give us confidence with great boldness. Oh, what tremendous joy it is to participate in His kingdom work by utilizing your own unique Spiritual gifts with great power. We soon discover that every believer is needed in the Kingdom to help others to become all that God wants them to be. We follow God because we fit perfectly into the fellowship of believers as the true Church where everyone is needed for the common good. What a tremendous joy it is to be a part of something so wonderfully unique.

Finally, as followers of God, we don’t have much interest in political affairs. So, we simply render unto Cesar the things due to Cesar though the obedience of their laws that don’t conflict with God’s law (See Matthew 22:21). As followers of God, we render unto God the things due to God, such as, raising our children to fear and obey God, which is nearly impossible if we send them to public school. We have observed what public education has done for our young people and the direction of this county. We render unto God by being obedient to all of His beautiful commandments. We stand against a culture that condones homosexuality, the transgender, abortion, psychiatric counseling, the use of mind-altering drugs, and the many other perversions of a world gone mad. No, our real interest is in spending time with God in the Spirit through long periods of silence and solitude learning how to listen to His still small voice. Therein is the amazing joy and peace of following Christ. The greatest joy, however, is walking in God’s love by allowing His love to flow through us to others. We pray daily, “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Let’s make the Church great again! This is our true hope for the world, which neither political party can produce. Remember dear children, they along with the rest of the world leaders are in total rebellion against God, even if they tell you otherwise. Please keep your eyes wide open!

Coming Trials Will Test Your Faith

We all know, or should know, that it’s faith that unlocks the door to heaven and eternal life. Perhaps that’s the first thing we heard when we embraced the glorious message of Jesus Christ and His offer of salvation. The majority of those who say that they believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially those living in the West today, have not had their faith severely tested but their time is coming quickly. You might be thinking that the trials thus far this year have been quite enough to test or prove our faith, to make it stronger, and to rely solely upon the Lord. But I will tell you plainly, that the trials coming will either break you completely or they will strengthen your faith. We have not seen anything yet. The trials on the horizon will shock the entire world. Unfortunately, most have allowed their faith to grow weaker and weaker as they lean more on their own understanding or their unwavering reliance on the many props and counseling of the modern world. This weakened faith, my dear friends, will not stand during the coming trials to test our faith. On the other hand, we must allow the coming trials to strengthen our faith, just as the metal is strengthened by passing through the fire thus purging it of all its impurities.

The Bible says, “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations” (James 1:2). We rejoice because we have not given in to the temptations that test our faith. Let’s look at some of the most dangerous temptations that try our faith. When these trials come, most people will be tempted to strike back or take matters into their own hands. They will be tempted to make quick, irrational decisions, that often bring about even more grievous trials that can last for decades. Or they will immediately strike back with no thought of the consequences. Or they will rely heavily upon the counsel of the world with no thought of asking God for His counsel. Our first lesson, during the approaching trials that test our faith, is learning to wait upon the Lord, allowing our trials to teach us patience. The Bible says, “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience” (James 1:3). This is a beautiful verse because it teaches us, if we allow it, by not striking back, our patience will increase. Be patient. Our patience will increase if we don’t make quick irrational decisions when trials come. Be patient. Our patience will increase when trials come if we don’t rely on the world’s counsel but seek God’s counsel immediately and then wait for His answer. Be patient.

To stand firm against all that’s coming upon the world will take a great deal of patience that will grow stronger after every passing storm if we don’t overreact by taking matters into our own hands. In the midst of the storm, we will only need to cry out to the Lord, waiting for His counsel, for his direction, and His leading. It takes great patience to do this in the midst of your trials because you will be tempted. You will be tempted to rely on others. You will be tempted to make the same mistakes. We have seen this in people returning to abusive relationships, or following the same old crowd, or returning to their old addictions. When trials come the temptations will be great. The Bible says, “But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” (James 1:4). Patience is an often-overlooked virtue that’s so desperately needed today. Patience is our path to perfection and the glories of heaven. Let me be clear, patience is not just sitting down and doing nothing. Patience is active and sharper than any two-edged sword. Patience turns to God alone seeking only His advice. It takes great patience to stand on God’s Words alone and follow His directions in the face of an evil world.

Let’s take a look at Daniel for example who was cast into the lion’s den simply because he continued his daily prayers to God. Daniel demonstrated great patience as his faith was being tested. He did not cry out to an unbelieving world. He did not attempt to fight the lions. He did not attempt to hide from them. He did not hide his face in shame, nor did he just give up. No, I will tell you what he did, he turned immediately to his God, the God of both heaven and earth. He put himself totally into the hands of God who answered his petition by sending an angel to close the mouths of the lions. Let me tell you that I believe that Daniel continued in prayer and faith, throughout the entire night, believing that God would keep the mouths of the lions shut and in their respective places so that they would not bring any harm to him. Daniel allowed his patience in the coming trial to bring forth its perfect work, that he would be perfect wanting nothing. So, please dear children, when tragedy strikes and you’re facing your next trial meant to strengthen your faith, turn immediately to God with all patience waiting upon Him to answer.

Dear children, if we are befuddled by what’s happening, unable to understand why we are going through our trial then we can ask God for wisdom. This heavenly wisdom is very useful because it tells us why our trial came in the first place. Was it our doing that caused it? Or was it simply a trial sent by God to strengthen our faith? Or was it our perception of a trial, simply caused by our unwillingness to accept the course of events? Or was it simply a course of events that are causing us to do something that we didn’t want to. God’s wonderful wisdom will answer all of our questions which will help us to face our trial, to make sense of it. However, we must ask. We must ask in faith, believing that God is listening, believing that He has not left us alone, and believing that He will tell us exactly what’s causing our trial; and most importantly, how to face it. However, if you are one who believes one minute and not the next, you will not receive anything from the Lord (See James 1:5-8). On the other hand, if we have faith, if we wait upon the Lord, and do nothing until He directs our path, then we will be absolutely amazed at how God works in our life. You could very well be the next Daniel facing his lions.

On the other hand, what if we discover that it’s our sin that’s causing our trials? Don’t blame God. I know many who have done that, by saying, that the sin just happened, or I just fell into the trespass. So, you blame God but remember dear children, He only sends good gifts (See James 1:17). Furthermore, the Bible tells us falling into sin is a process. You did not just fall into it. I can remember years ago coming to the aid of a dear Christian woman who was absolutely broken-hearted that her husband had admitted to the third extramarital affair with another woman. Three separate affairs devastated this poor woman. I insisted on meeting with the husband as well, which in time took us to this very Scripture (See James 1:13-15). The husband said it wasn’t his fault. He insisted that he had just fallen into the trespass, taking no blame for his actions. As I took him through the Scripture, step by step, I demonstrated to him that the trespass began the moment he had “lust” in his heart making it easy for him to be “enticed.” It’s a process. Then over a period of time by allowing an intimate conversation to take place with someone other than his dear wife (which I see happening to a lot of people on Facebook). It’s a process. Then his lust finally conceived and brought forth sin; the sin of adultery. It’s a process! This man faced many needless trials in his life, because of his own ungodly, wrong choices. God cannot be blamed for your trial if you sinned.

Also, it could be that our trials are simply due to our own bad decisions. You may have just started running with, or listening to, the wrong people. I see this all the time on Facebook; someone asking questions on Facebook and then getting fifty different answers to choose from. Instead of praying for God’s guidance through the study of the Bible or being led to a mature believer that God has picked out, they turn to an open forum relying on their own understanding to make the right choice. Believe me, making the wrong choices can lead to many grievous trials. God’s beautiful wisdom can reveal that your bad decision is the cause of your trial. Ask God for wisdom. Then immediately ask God for His forgiveness, forgiveness for your bad choices. Then ask God for His new direction. His answer may be difficult. You may not even want to do it. God may not even deliver you from the trial because of your bad decision. However, you will feel different. You will receive God’s magnificent peace that He is back with you, back in charge, working out everything to the good (See Romans 8:28). Just remember, dear children, every trial is not necessarily the hand of God but could be brought about by your own evil actions.

So, as you can see there are various types of trials to test our faith. For those who have no faith, their trials will destroy them. We are already seeing this in today’s world where people are going stark raving mad because of the many trials and tribulations falling upon the world. For you Christian, it should not be so. As we face the raging forest fires, the heat waves, an increasing number of earthquakes, destructive hurricanes, rising sea levels, and flooding, along with this latest pandemic, we will not be overcome by our trials, but our faith will be strengthened. We stand before the storms of life with great patience believing that God is in control. We believe that God has His faithful children in the palm of His hand. We believe that He is giving us the grace and mercy to see it through to the end. We don’t cry out to the world. We are not afraid. We don’t complain. We don’t overreact. We don’t take matters into our own hands. We don’t seek the counsel of the world. We stand firm on the truth that God has given us the truth, that He will work all things together for good for those that love Him. Dear children, let the world, who’s in a panic, see your strong faith instead of your constant complaining and bickering among yourselves (See Philippians 2:14-16). Stand firm, dear children, the coming trials will test your faith – as they destroy fallen humanity.

The Unseen Enemy

They say, “seeing is believing.” Well, I am here to tell you, that some things unseen is more dangerous than anything you can see with your physical eyes. It’s more dangerous than the so-called deep state or the worst conspiracy theory. This unseen enemy can destroy your life in ways that are hard to imagine. He can do far worse than all the plagues falling upon unrepentant humanity for the consequences of their many sins. It’s far worse than the raging forest fires, the many earthquakes, the giant tsunamis, the explosive hurricanes, and even the virus taking so many lives. Journey with me to the deepest caverns of your hidden emotions, which can easily border on insanity or stark raving madness. These emotions, safely hid from sight, contain our greatest fears that grip our entire being. In every human, there is the horrific fear of failing, not being accepted, losing our livelihood, maintaining our ability to function, to keep a sound mind, or being destroyed. To go even deeper we see contradicting thoughts pulling us in one direction and then another expressing thoughts of fear that leads to outbursts of anger, hate, and even revenge. Going even deeper we discover, if we are honest, thoughts introduced by the enemy that’s driving everyone in the world a bit mad, as they entertain thoughts of unchecked lawlessness and pure evil spilling into the streets of America and behind every closed door.

It’s these thoughts that will interest us today, thoughts that come directly from the unseen enemy, who is tapping into our old sin nature. Yes, you heard me right. The old sin nature. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). We are living in a world that has completely forgotten the meaning of sin. It is no longer in their vocabulary. It’s no longer important in a modern age that winks at man’s law and completely ignores God’s law. Any trespass against either law is a sin. There is one very strong emotion that opens the door to the unseen enemy. There is one emotion that allows him to resurrect and inflame the old sin nature, opening the door to explosive anger and open hostility. This emotion is fear. This emotion of fear is so strong that it can bring about blindness searing one’s consciousness of what’s right and what’s wrong. I am convinced that the enemy is using the latest plagues, especially the virus, to engender fear into all the citizens of the world driving many to unchecked lawlessness. Yes, fear has gripped the world allowing the unseen enemy to open the door to their old sin nature and to plant his thoughts into their minds. These thoughts allow them to see everything as the worst-case scenario, allowing their fear to cause other dangerous emotions, such as, brooding, stress, anxiety, and heightened frustration, which will all in time lead to anger and open hostility against their fellow man. We are living in a time of unprecedented lawlessness.

It’s these emotions that lead us to openly strike back at others that have different opinions or a different agenda, who are seen as radical and hurtful. The unseen enemy is successfully dividing the entire world into warring camps bent on the death and destruction of the opposing forces. Both the left and the right are growing more radical in their position constantly thinking of new ways to defeat their enemy. This can easily be seen in both news articles and social media timelines with a ruthlessness unseen in previous generations. Journalists need to use an array of different adjectives to describe their hatefulness, such as slamming, blasting, bashing, hitting back, scorching, scolding, saying harsh things, making accusations, condemning, mocking others, fury erupting at others, or making well-crafted attacks. How many more adjectives can be found to explain what’s happening in the hearts of Americans and in the hearts of those from around the world. Dear friends, it’s not just the weak-minded that’s open to these inflaming thoughts of the unseen enemy. It’s not just the uneducated or the poor but every class of people who have grown increasingly fearful. Unfortunately, this also includes many who call upon the Name of the Lord because they have not learned how to stand against the silent enemy.

We must fight back! Our enemy is not the left or the right. Our enemy is not black, brown, red, or yellow. Our enemy is much greater than what we can see. The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). We cannot close our eyes to the unseen enemy because he is real. The picture of wrestling with someone shows the close proximity of the enemy. This is not some government power in a distant land. This is not some political power seeking to destroy us. This is not even our greatest known enemies. On the other hand, we wrestle with a much greater power that seeks to reside in our own hearts. We wrestle against the lies and conspiracy theories that keep our heads spinning and our hearts more fearful. We wrestle against the false doctrines of religion and other beliefs seeking to invade our minds causing many to doubt the truth of their salvation casting them into even greater fear of eternal damnation. We wrestle against lawlessness being peddled on the streets of our great cities and in the classrooms of our universities that engenders fear of a world gone mad. This is a battle for the mind and heart of humanity seeking to drive them stark raving mad doing things to others in their riots and mayhem that shock our sensibilities. This unseen enemy is the powers of darkness.

We see this happening so greatly today because so many have turned their back on God. We knew this day would come, a day of complete lawlessness. They no longer trust in God’s ability to stand against this great force of evil that’s invaded our world. A strengthened military will not defeat this enemy. A stronger blue line will not defeat this enemy. This is a spiritual war that must be defeated by the Spirit, the Spirit of the living God living in us. This ability has been freely given to all of God’s beloved children. We simply must take it. We must believe that we have been given the grace to stand against the rulers of the darkness. We must believe that we have been given the strength to stand against spiritual wickedness in high places. Yes, as true believers in Christ we have been given everything we need to take our stand against the enemy who is seeking to inflame our old sin nature by tapping into all of our emotions. I hope that you are beginning to see that secular counseling and mind-altering drugs will not effectively deal with our emotions, especially our most formidable emotion, fear. The only thing that will work against this most powerful force is putting on the full armor of God.

It won’t help to yell at the devil, otherwise, you may discover that you are simply yelling at yourself. If you really want to stop the devil and stand against the powers of darkness, then we must put on the full armor of God (See my book “Stand Firm” that goes into much greater detail about each piece of armor). To put on the full armor is to accept the salvation of Jesus Christ (See Ephesians 6:15), to grow in His truth and righteousness (See Ephesians 6:14), and to yield His powerful Word with all prayer (See Ephesians 6:17-18). The key to standing firm against this silent enemy, the powers of darkness, is continued spiritual growth, growing from one degree of glory to another by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ (See Ephesians 4:21-24). To do so, will strengthen your trust and faith in Christ alone to deliver you from all of your dangerous and unpredictable emotions of the old sin nature. As the whole world goes mad, the children of God will stand fearlessly against all that’s falling upon the world by extending their love to others rather than hate. We as His beloved children will be the only ones truly practicing non-retaliation and seeing its great miracle of disarming our assailants. Stand firm dear children and don’t be overcome by the evil powers invading all of humanity.

The Prophecy: A Revelation for God’s Children

Revelation is Dynamic.  When the scales fall off our eyes then we are amazed at the dynamic nature of the book of Revelation, which thrills our hearts. It’s happened, it’s happening, and it will shortly come to pass or be fulfilled. Through these lenses, we see something quite amazing. As the prophecy is fulfilled, step by step, it colors in more of the drama between the powers of darkness and the children of light. It progressively unveils the raging battle between an all-powerful God and the dragon seeking to unseat His authority. So, let’s join the drama once again in the last of the last days when we observe the beast coming out of the sea (Read Revelation 13:1). Throughout history, we have observed great powers arising from the sea of humanity seeking to make a name for themselves by conquering and to conquer. Powerful leaders, in their respective countries, have readily sought alliances and treaties to overpower more and more of humanity to follow their dictates. As each proudly displays its religious horns, some also had the crown of great power. We observe throughout history each desperately trying to rule the world making everyone subject to their blasphemous authority. They proudly proclaim to know what’s best for humanity by putting forth their own doctrines and traditions above God’s absolute truth.

Now we come to the 21st Century and we still observe the beast coming out of the sea but now we see things differently. The scales have been removed from our eyes. No longer is it necessary to overcome through military might alone but through the dictates of a United Nations sitting on the shores of the United States of America. Now we are getting much closer to the end when every kindred, tongue, people, and nation can be brought together under one authoritative leader and his earthshattering policies. This is the turning point in world history! This is where nations and people can be brought into alignment with the New World Order to share in their agenda, their policies, their aspirations, and their mutual beliefs. As the world learns from America, the great melting pot of different people and religions, it grows increasingly divergent from their old cultural norms and religious biases. The people have grown increasingly open to new ideas, by assimilating religious dogma from other religions, to maintaining a quasi-allegiance to their cultural beliefs or choosing to accept just a humanistic approach for dealing with life’s problems. Either way, true belief in God allowing His relationship to affect all of life has become something of the past. Since the 19th Century, it has progressively led most people to assimilate humanistic teachings with their time-honored religious beliefs. The whole world, with only a few exceptions, is becoming a larger melting pot of shared beliefs and practices. As the world throws off the yoke of religion, they are embracing a new religion that’s taking the world by storm and emblazoning the words “blasphemy” across the many heads of the beast.

The Wounded Head. Something new has now tremendously upset the entire world as they realize that one of the heads of the beast coming out of the sea of humanity is wounded. The Bible says, “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3). So, we must ask two questions about this verse. First, who is strong enough to critically wound one of the heads of the beast, where nearly everyone would proclaim its death-wound; where many would wonder out loud if it could ever recover. Then secondly, we must ask who or what does this wounded head represent. Let’s look at the second question first. I believe that God has shown me who this wounded head is in the world today. Yes, the beast is alive and well, at least all but one head. This wounded head is America. Although she had been the guiding light for the rest of the world for many years demonstrating how to unite all people together as one through the process of assimilation, she has now run into great difficulty. She, one of the heads of the beast, has been wounded to death by one who has rejected globalization leading to open borders and more assimilation. She has canceled treaties, nullified agreements, and has been building a huge wall on the Southern border. There is even talk of defunding the United Nations; a tremendous blow to the beast wounding one of its heads, America. This appears to be the death of globalization.

Who could do such a thing? One untimely born, an outsider, and a businessman was called to such a task, driving the entire world mad with all of his reversals and policy changes from previous administrations. Yes, Donald J. Trump was called to the task of demolishing the New World Order in less than four years. The consequences of man’s enormous sins have done the rest (deepened the fatal wound) by decimating the economy with the latest plague sent from the hand of Almighty God. Yes, the blasphemous head of the beast has been critically wounded and the prophecy continues. The wounded head of the beast, America, will be healed but not in the way you may have hoped. It will be healed to continue its relentless march toward globalization. It will immediately renew all the broken treaties and reverse all the policy changes by the next administration, either in three months or in four years with a completely different leader coming from the left. Either way, the wounded head of the beast, America, will be healed and the prophecy will be fulfilled. You can only imagine the jubilation in the streets of the world. The Bible says, “… and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3b), whose head, America, was healed. This will be a time of great praise and adoration. Instead of rioting, people will be dancing in the streets. Great joy will fill the air. Now America, the recovered head of the beast, can take its rightful place among the nations as they prepare for the coming man of perdition or commonly referred to as the Antichrist. They finally have the reset for world conquest, leading all of its inhabitants to worship the beast.

This is not the whole prophecy because the beast will also require everyone to worship him, the image of the beast, and even Satan himself. A crucial part of understanding his next step, after the re-establishing of the New World Order, is the image of the beast that will be set up by the religious type beast. Read Revelation 13:11-15. This image will speak forth the words of the beast requiring everyone to put those words into their life. As he beams his signal around the world through the internet, television, and social media, then obedience to his words will be considered as worship. What are these words coming from the beast, the New World Order, through the image of the beast? Remembering that the Revelation is dynamic, we must realize that Satan has been hard at work bringing this into fulfillment for many decades now. It started in the 19th Century when humanism through the works of Freud established anti-religion, teaching his followers that God is no longer needed or capable to solve humanity’s emotional and psychological problems. Throughout history, we have seen one religion after another assimilate this new humanistic doctrine into their respective religions. We have seen them just as readily teach this false doctrine from their pulpits as they do the Bible, thus preparing the world for the coming Beast and his image broadcasting this deceptive lie to the entire world.

Once the wounded head of the beast has been healed, the New World Order re-established, and the image of the beast is successfully broadcasting his deceptive lie around the world, then everyone will be required to adhere to his words to draw humanity away from trusting in God exclusively. He will broadcast the methods of psychology and their need to take their prescribed mind-altering drugs. Up until the time of the healing of the wounded head of the beast, the doctrines of psychology and their mind-altering drugs have, for the most part, been simply a choice. Yet, they have been conditioning the entire world to accept the mandatory requirements soon to come. Satan could care less about what your religious practices are or what you proclaim is the truth. What he does care about is that you will worship him for giving you everything you need to become the perfect man apart from Christ. Satan sees this as worship because you have turned your back on God and His ability to address all of your problems and have decided to trust in the beast and his new world religion. He wants you to worship him, the Beast (the leadership and doctrines of the New World Order), and his image (the teachings of psychology along with your need for taking mind-altering drugs). In time, they will also be required to receive an identification mark indicating that they are now trusting in the beast to solve all of their emotional and psychological problems and taking all of their prescribed drugs. If you follow this teaching and take his drugs, then you will be worshiping Satan and not God.

Let me be very clear, for over two hundred years Satan has been preparing the world through the methods of psychology, leading the world to reject God’s ability to fix all of our emotional and psychological problems. He has successfully done this in every religion in the world.  For many, it’s now too late. They will not believe the truth because they have already been deceived and accepted the lie. The Bible says, “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (II Thessalonians 2:11-12). So, God sends them a strong delusion. This is exactly why we already have more than half the world bowing at the altar of Satan and his beast. This is why so many will freely take the mark, visit their therapist, and take their mind-altering drugs. How dreadfully sad. I hope that you can see now, why I am so distressed with so many who are chasing after every conspiracy theory and missing the truth of God’s prophecy. I implore you to accept this prophecy and its revelation of truth before it’s too late. To ignore it will keep you blind and a slave to Satan and his host of wickedness. This will be worse than any dystopian movie; worse than any holocaust for those who refuse. Welcome to the new world.

Dear Christian, You’re Fighting the Wrong Battle

I will not spend much time showing you that you’re fighting the wrong battle, but I will spend much more time showing you how to fight the real battle being waged for your souls. There is a spiritual battle raging in the world today that’s causing great harm. This massive hysteria is driving people to the threshold of insanity where their old feelings of stress and anxiety look unbelievably mild in comparison. Many people I have talked to have a most difficult time managing this new normal as they struggle to keep up with their face mask, remembering to sanitize everything they bring home, to washing their hands again and again. Many complain about not being able to attend church, visit close friends, or even see members of one’s own family. All of this, however, barely scratches the surface of what people are going through, the unspoken pain they are experiencing, as they face another plague infecting the entire world. For some, what’s most intolerable is their inability to stay focused, to maintain their schedules, and to accomplish what they desire. Moreover, they feel like a reed blowing in the wind, as they try to grasp what’s really going on in the world. This causes them to follow one conspiracy theory after another. Yet, none of them can help them to find solace with what’s happening in their souls. What’s going on?

Dear children, you are in the midst of a Great War being waged between the children of light and the children of darkness. You are in a great spiritual war for the souls of all humanity. The powers of darkness have created this mass hysteria causing God’s children to fight the wrong battle. For many months now most believers have been fighting the wrong battle. The battle is not political, it’s not racial, it’s not left against right, or red against blue, it’s not even religious. It’s not about which drug is the best effective cure against the latest virus, it’s not about uncovering some deep state, and it’s not about wearing a mask or not wearing one. It is not about all the conspiracy theories flooding the internet and social media. No, the real battle is against the mass hysteria created by the powers of darkness to keep us bewildered and confused. This is the great deception that will usher in the man of lawlessness. It has always been a ploy in warfare to misdirect the opposing forces. That’s exactly what we see happening with this mass hysteria. Unfortunately, it’s working all too well. The only thing that will make a difference, that will keep your soul from being destroyed by the enemy is to join in the fight, to learn how to wage war with the real enemy of your soul, before it’s too late.

Allow me to digress just for a moment and tell you why the enemy is winning. He is winning because he is keeping you occupied. Let that sink in for a moment. The old devil wants to keep you so busy with the nonessentials, going one way and then another, that you don’t realize that you are being destroyed by the enemy. He is taking you captive to do his will. Dear children, take this warning seriously. If you don’t, one day soon, you will wake up to complete poverty of spirit, soul, and everything else that had any meaning to you. It will all be lost. The war is being waged now. You can either be a casualty of war or you can be a soldier for Christ. The choice is yours. If you chose to be a soldier, as a child of the light, then let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work. The first thing we must do is refocus our efforts. This will be the biggest stumbling block for most, so we will begin with that first. Refocus your efforts! Stop doing what you have been doing. Stop your research. The enemy is causing all this hysteria robbing you of your time and extinguishing your light. Stop chasing after every conspiracy theory or false prophecy. This is the first step and the most difficult.

Once you have successfully stopped chasing the wind then it’s time to redeem all the time. Yes, you knew I would speak about time management. This is extremely important because you will need all that extra time, and even more. I could tell you to put on the full armor of God, as outlined in my book, Stand Firm, or I could tell you many more things about spiritual warfare, which would all be great, but today I just want you to focus on two simple, yet profound truths. These truths will not only make you a soldier in the battle, but it will also give you hope in overcoming the wiles of the devil and standing victoriously with the faithful remnant at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keeps the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). Of course, the dragon is also known as Satan or the devil who wages a very destructive and demoralizing war with not only fallen humanity but the children of light or the faithful remnant. We will take two great lessons from this passage of Scripture. The remnant is obedient to all of God’s commandments and secondly, they hold on tenaciously to the testimony of Jesus Christ.

It’s these two marks (or hallmarks if you prefer) that will get you off the sidelines and put you in battle as His soldier against the powers of darkness. It’s these two attributes that will allow you to participate in the glorious victory at Christ’s Second Coming. So, please, let’s not take them lightly but rather eagerly put them into your life. Let’s begin with obedience to all of God’s commandments. Although we have been gloriously saved by God’s grace, we know that we are still required to obey all of His beautiful commandments because He has written them on our hearts through the Holy Spirit. This is a true mark of the faithful remnant. We have been given these blessed commandments to show us how to be true lights in a very dark world. The more we learn and obey, the brighter our light becomes. The remnant of God will have a tremendous desire not only to study every commandment but to apply them to their lives. Our obedience to all of His commandments will powerfully change us from the inside out and will magnificently impact the world for Christ.

Come join me in this great spiritual battle – in obedience, we don’t ever deny the Father or the Son but openly acknowledge them at all times and in every place with great joy in our hearts (See I John 2:23). In obedience, we don’t grieve the Holy Spirit by ignoring His leading to speak unafraid and powerfully to the fallen world (See Ephesians 4:30). In obedience, we will share our sincere love with all people by being kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving (See Ephesians 4:31-32). In obedience, we will build others up with appropriate and gracious words of encouragement (See I Thessalonians 5:11, and Ephesians 4:29). In obedience, we will practice non-retaliation, soundly defeating the enemy as we go (See Matthew 5:38-48). In obedience, we will rejoice and be glad at all times (See Philippians 4:4). What joy it is to see the powerful impact we have upon the world through obedience to all of God’s commandments. As you can see this takes time and effort as you begin to realize the treasure trove of His beautiful commands and the time it takes to actively apply them to your life. When we are obedient, we don’t have time to chase after every conspiracy theory released by the powers of darkness to keep us busy and confused.

But that’s not all. The other true mark of the faithful remnant is our testimony of Jesus Christ. We hear a lot of testimony these days, but we don’t hear the testimony of Jesus Christ. The testimony of Jesus Christ has not changed in over two thousand years. His testimony will proclaim loudly, that through faith we are delivered from the bondage of this world and translated to a life of blessed happiness beyond measure. Hallelujah! (See Colossians 1:13) We will proclaim, that Christ changes us from the inside out through the power of the Holy Spirit. We proclaim that. He is preparing us for eternity. Every moment of every day is needed for this transformation in Christ. As we are being changed, we will be witnesses of the great joy being formed up in us. We find that we are unable to contain this great joy as we miraculously become lights in a dark world. Once His truth is firmly planted in us then we become soldiers of the Cross as the enemy attacks us at every turn denying the truth being planted in our souls. As the war rages against our souls, the powers of darkness will deny the truth that God can really forgive our past, striking it from our memories, and making us into new creations. We must allow people to see this powerful change taking place in our lives. Praise God!

Now, come with me. Let’s testify for Christ – the testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims that the world should not be surprised by what’s happening. All of these plagues have been foretold as the direct consequence of their turning away from God and practicing their wickedness (See Revelation 9:20-21). Thanks to Hollywood, higher education, and the News Media we have plummeted into the depths of immorality. The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims loudly that mankind’s many difficulties in life arise from them denying God’s ability to give them everything they need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:2-3). Thanks to the lies of psychology the whole world has gone into bondage. The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims that through faith in Jesus Christ He makes us into new creations where old things truly pass away (See II Corinthians 5:17). The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims to the world that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and unless they repent, then eternal damnation awaits them in the fiery pits of hell (See Romans 3:23, and Matthew 13:42). We should never be afraid to proclaim the testimony of Jesus Christ for therein lies the greatest blessings for His beloved children.

In conclusion, this is the fight that we have been called to, but as the title says, many are fighting the wrong battle. As they try to plummet the depths of evil and then share what they have discovered, then they are fighting the wrong battle. The more they do this, the deeper they will sink into darkness extinguishing whatever light they had. When they do this then they will no longer be effective in the Kingdom of God. Don’t think for a moment that you can just sit on the sidelines. If you do, then you will be destroyed. You think it’s bad now just wait. This will take faith; it will take time. I implore you to redeem the time and join the battle today against the powers of darkness that have engineered this mass hysteria. Stand Firm dear children though obedience and proclaiming the testimony of Jesus Christ. Amen
