Shelter in Place an Enigma in Disguise

With all the evil things in the world today, we hear a lot about “shelter in place.” Every time there’s a mass shooting or a disaster we usually hear this refrain and we all know what to do. Don’t move from the area, take cover, and remain silent. We are not meant to fight back, but hide. For many, if not most, it’s the loneliest time in their life. You are left completely alone with your fears, your anxiety and the unknown. The dark daunting unknown. Almost anything these days could cause us to shelter in place, from mass shootings to natural disasters; and, from martial law to a nuclear attack as we hear it over the loud speakers or on emergency radios. Yet, this is an enigma in disguise, because where is the real shelter? You are hiding, hunkered down, behind an unlocked door or in your home, but where is the real shelter? Where is the solace, or the comfort that everything is ok? For those in the world there is no real shelter. Shelter in place is an enigma, but for the believers it should be different. Let me show you how.

When tragedy strikes you’re not alone. No matter how tragic your circumstances God is with us through the indwelling Holy Spirit. As the world panics and cries out in agony, we are convinced that nothing happens to His beloved children unless He allows it. So, we must ask ourselves, “what is the worst-case scenario?” What is the greatest fear of fallen humanity? And the answer, “To be tortured to death.” It has been proven over and over again that God has the ability to take away the pain. In all the persecutions throughout the ages there is no known recorded account of true believers crying out in agony while suffering at the hands of evil men. On the contrary, most exhibited an unusual calmness and peace that defies understanding. Moreover, many exhibited an unnatural love for their tormentors and on occasion praising God and giving testimony to God’s grace and mercy to save fallen humanity. They do not need to storm the gates of Heaven, because He is already there through the indwelling Holy Spirit.

While the heathen world is thrown into confusion and pandemonium let the believers in Christ be strong pillars exhibiting peace, speaking with great strength, confidence and clarity as instructions are followed to shelter in place. For the world, there is no real shelter from the horrors of impending doom, but for the believers they have already found their shelter in God. The Bible says, “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler” (Psalms 91:4). Let us never cower even under impending doom, but show our strength in the relationship we have with a mighty and an all-powerful God. Demonstrating among the heathen that our trust is in our God to either deliver us or give us the strength to stand up under it. The Bible says, “There hath no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (I Corinthians 10:13).

As the world falls apart around us, our true solace and peace is in Christ. In the dark night of our soul spoken of by St. John of the Cross, a 16th Century Spanish Carmelite, let us enter into that sanctuary of peace instead of being horrified by what’s happening around us. To do so will allow us to take comfort in God’s presence. To take encouragement from His Words spoken so softly to the soul giving it meaning in a world of confusion. In an instant, everything becomes crystal clear. The whole world is but a stage with meaningless pawns moved about to bring forth the ultimate consummation of humanity and the salvation of millions of souls to the glory of God. No longer are we caught up in the senseless day to day, moment by moment, drama played out by men who think they have the power to change the direction of the world and humanity’s fate. All is vanity. Ringing so true from the writer of Ecclesiastes, who was acquainted with universal truth well before his time. All is vanity, indeed, but for the believer his life is not vanity who has his life hid in Christ and sees the future through the lens of Christ, the Alpha and the Omega.

So what difference does a day make? For fallen humanity it makes no difference, but for His beloved children, every day is important as we work together, united in Spirit from around the world and throughout the ages, to shape not the outward world, but the inward Spirit to be the true tabernacle as a dwelling place for God. Yes, the One true God living in us, all of us, through His Spirit. So, this should be our aim to reach beyond the religious barriers erected by deranged men, demonstrating the pride of Satan himself. Then the question arises, can we trust God to make all His children one without the help of prideful man producing his doctrines. Doctrines that don’t always follow the Spirit of God, but end up being nothing better than the doctrine of demons. Doctrines used by man’s laziness, because he doesn’t want to spend the time studying God’s Word. If we are faithful to God’s Word then He will make us one. The Pope can’t do it. All the great religious leaders can’t do it. Political leadership can’t do it. And, let me emphasize that even the coming Antichrist can’t do it, even with his false prophet. But only God can do it by teaching His beloved children to look beyond the doctrines of man and look to His Word alone that’s made alive through the indwelling Spirit of God. That gives us everything we need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3). It’s this unity in the Spirit that gives us strength as we stand together to face the horrors of the world.

As we become one in Christ, everything comes into focus. For the first time we see, we really see our present reality, we see what lies on the horizon and the culmination of humanity’s fate. The tumult will be global reaching from shore to shore and around the world, we all know that it’s coming. This we can see clearly, but what do we see now? Those whom we never thought could be believers in Christ are becoming believers. The old religious territories are coming to life, the people of old are now seeing a great light beyond the foolishness of man-made religions of all the “isms” to a new life in Christ. No longer interested in the doctrines of man, they are seeking a higher calling in Christ to walk by His Spirit alone. This wave will have a profound effect upon humanity as it sweeps across the world enveloping everything in its path, until it runs into the walls erected by the Antichrist and his false prophet. For his rule will be fantastic, gathering up millions to follow his doctrines created by self-righteous man.

Millions will die finding that the shelter of man can no longer protect them from what’s coming upon the whole world. For those who are one in the Spirit of the living God have no fear. All fear is jettisoned knowing that what awaits them, is by far, a better place. They have already caught a glimpse of it by all being in the same Spirit. They have seen the love that has brought every race, culture, and nationality together as one in the same Spirit. This is a far cry from the old globalism sought by so many in ages past. For this unity embraces every individual who has turned to Christ in repentance and received the Spirit of the living God. We see the fulfillment of Christ’s high priestly prayer, “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21). They have caught a glimpse of Heaven by witnessing the shunning of man’s religious doctrines and seeing millions who are now growing in the Spirit by putting off the old man and putting on the new. So, as they face the last hour together there is great joy in their heart, because the last enemy to be defeated is death. “Oh Death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?” (I Corinthians 15:55)

Mankind’s shelter in place is an enigma in disguise, but for the true believer in Christ we already have our shelter in Christ as we approach tomorrow, no longer with uncertainty but with great joy in our heart for the things to come. We will overcome, because we have “… come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). Amen

Are We Rushing Headlong into a Repressive Dynasty?

In recent months, there has been a revolving door at the White House of world leaders, but now on Mr. Trump’s first foreign trip he is scheduled to meet with the Vatican. There are more questions than answers. They say with every action there is a reaction. From revolution to counter-revolutions there is always the resistance fighting for what they perceive to be the truth. From protests to martial law and from revolutions to a change in governing powers most will suffer. From liberal governments to repressive so the pendulum swings. Politically we as a country are on a very slippery slope that would affect the entire world. In our eagerness to escape the immorality of a liberal government we may be rushing headlong into a repressive dynasty seeking to interject religious laws and mandates into its governance, forcing the population to adhere or face the consequences. How did we ever get into this mess? Whatever happened to the moderate who would keep immorality in check while giving all a freedom of religious expression or descent.

A brief look at history will help. From the First Century until now there has been those who have worked tirelessly for a Kingdom now theology, rejecting the notion that people could openly reject its laws and precepts to govern their behavior. The Roman Catholic Church went that way for many centuries demanding that all the citizens of the Holy Roman Empire adhere to its laws and theological beliefs or suffer the consequences of persecution and death. History, not changed for political purposes, teaches us a lesson of how nations of people in reaction to repressive or liberal governments will allow the pendulum to swing all the way in the opposite direction. That is, to go from one extreme to another. We have seen this throughout history, one example being the religious Reformation against the Catholic Church. The most alarming example in our day, is the resistance to a liberal government and gross immorality that could set the stage for a repressive government. The pendulum has swung all the way in the opposite direction.

I am convinced that the last government who will seek to expand its power and influence around the world will overcome the Christian. The Bible says, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7). So, the question is, how will the Christians saints be overcome? This is a critical question that must be entertained by every true believer in Christ. Let me say clearly that Satan will not do it as most expect. It will not be a frontal attack dragging every Christian off to the chopping block. This was done in Ancient Rome, which in the end did not overcome the saints, but did the opposite. Ancient writers wrote that the persecution was the seeds of the Church. Instead of destroying the Church it grew stronger. To show their faithfulness to Christ, they willingly faced persecution with joy in their hearts as they witnessed the gospel to their tormentors and praised God that they were counted worthy to suffer for His Name.

In the last days, Satan has another plan to overcome the Christian. In one word, that will need further explanation, is “deception.” At last the Christian community, under the new governing authority, will feel that they have the upper hand against immorality. They will no longer be forced to participate in things they don’t believe in. In time bakers will have a sigh of relief. After many years, they have regained their voice in the political arena allowing it to be preached from the pulpit. They have a school choice for their dear children. After many years the pendulum has swung fully into the opposite direction and for a while everything seems wonderful. Even Social Media allows the Christian to express whatever they want without the fear of censorship. Are we being deceived? What are we willing to pay for this new-found freedom? It may cost you more than what you have bargained for.

For a time, everyone is granted a mixed bag of theology, which is quietly accepted in exchange for the new freedoms. Everyone is getting accustomed to turning their head or giving a nod, because honestly most will admit it’s better than before. As more and more reports surface that might lead the Christian community to question the direction of the governing powers the more these reports will be seen as illegitimate or fake news. As the community of the faithful hangs on by a thread the more the new government will step up its control of immorality to regain its base and faithful support. The inevitable is coming quickly. To control all immorality then all must be controlled. Keep your religion whatever form that takes, keep your mixed bag of theology, who cares, but all people must obey the new laws. Christian or non-Christian all must obey or face the consequences.

So, what is the new law? And who are the first in line to obey? Every so-called Christian who has not had their name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be eager to show their allegiance by obeying every law that keeps immorality in check and under control. So, what’s this new law? Simply put, demonstrate your allegiance to the governing powers by taking your mark whatever form it takes, visible or invisible who can say, perhaps allowing you to be tracked or be more readily identified and of course giving you the ability to buy or sell. And for those who are unwilling to participate, they will have a very difficult time surviving in the new world and eventually will face the consequences. Let me be very clear this will all seem quite normal and accepted by all. It will seem to be no different than living in a cashless society and the use of Credit Cards in days gone by. Even giving your worshipful allegiance to those in power will appear harmless and not much different than saluting the flag. Sad to say that all this is but the tip of the iceberg. It is the participation in supporting the new governing authorities, instituting their new laws of religious morality, and forcing everyone to follow them – that’s the real tragedy.

The gift of God to change man from the inside out will be exchanged to forcing man to change on the outside through their new laws of morality. The gift of God will be exchanged for a lie of the devil. Many, if not most of those who claim to know Christ as their Savior will be caught up in this, forcing their morality upon the world, and in so doing, the saying will come true, “the saints will be overcome.” The whole world will be deceived. Lord, open our eyes to things to come. This whole participation in the world’s agenda has started many years ago by convincing mankind that God does not have all the answers in His Word the Bible. The world for some time now has been treating humanity for all its emotional and psychological problems, which has paved the way to complete the process by now controlling his behavior not only through behavior modification, but through his new religious laws of morality. To legislate morality to change man’s behavior will become the mandate of the new government.

We will have come full cycle from the time of the Holy Roman Empire to the kingdom of the Beast. Who can stand? Dear, Christian let me encourage you to not participate in this devilish scheme. This is not God’s Way. His Way is to become a new person in Christ, that will change man’s behavior from the inside out, which can only be accomplished through faith in Christ. Satan from the beginning has always tried to mimic God in many ways from the Holy Trinity to death and resurrection of the beast (See Revelations 13:3) to the salvation of humanity. We must stand firm and resist the deception coming upon the whole world.

Progression of Biblical Prophecy a Tribute to Earth Day

At what rate is Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled is the biggest question occupying the mind of religious man. From the first century until now every generation believed theirs was the last, and rightly so, because it was written in such a way that every successive generation would prepare for Christ’s return. To deal with the world-wide plagues and catastrophic disaster’s in the book of Revelation most have either put them during a seven-year period of the Great Tribulation (either before or after the rapture) or have simply spiritualized the events. To choose the latter would dismiss the wrath of God, and to choose the former would not allow for the natural unfolding of events, but see them all unfolding at an alarming rate, sending the world’s population into panic and extreme shock. On the other hand, what if we interpreted it beyond the confines of a seven-year period where all the Biblical prophecies are being naturally unfolded over a longer period of time that stretches from the first century until all is fulfilled.

Bring Trump Down to Your Own Peril

We would have to be blind not to see the liberal establishment aggressively trying to bring down President Donald Trump. This is much more than just fault finding and nipping at his heals. It is much more than just spreading lies through the dishonest media or marching in the streets. They have changed the narrative. By doing so they are once again making themselves look like the good guys in the eyes of the people. They do this by calling themselves the “resistance” as if they are resisting an evil power, but they forget to point out that they are the ones who have kept the black community in bondage to a life of drugs, gangs, and the crumbling inner city. They forget to mention that they are the ones who first sought to sterilize the negro or at least kill their unborn children by the millions to keep them in check and under control. They have changed the narrative by calling the conservative party the party of hate, yet they are the ones who have encouraged their people to resist law enforcement while they vandalize and destroy public property. They are the ones who have caught conservatives and beat them publicly. Unlike the previous administration while most conservatives remained relatively quiet the liberal establishment has attempted to block nearly everything our current President is attempting to accomplish by pointing out real and unreal negative points to all the people.

Trump’s Endgame: Checkmate

The world rulers have been quite busy putting all its ideological pieces into place in this country and on the world stage, once accomplished, then checkmate. If we have had our spiritual eyes open, then we would see that many different policies that are being made ready to put into place, are necessary to win the hearts and minds of all the people. I believe that this has already started with the Christian community and will eventually include all people, even the liberal left. This is not a total draconian measure to enslave the population or allow it to slip into poverty, neglect, or division. On the other hand, it will look to reward the population for following its new policies. It will reward them with new and better jobs, better homes, and more freedom to enjoy the luxuries of life in a safe environment. With increased security measures and a robust military everyone will feel safer and step by step the hearts and minds of all the people will be won giving the new Administration its customary praise and allegiance. So, let’s briefly examine each of these ideological pieces and how they will all be put into place in the near future. Continue reading Trump’s Endgame: Checkmate
