A Blessing to Flee Bondage Now

In the Last Days following the Shepherd of our souls has become increasingly difficult for most people who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ. The Good Shepherd has been leading His children, for some time now, to come out from the world and be separate (Revelation 18:4-5). Unbeknown to most, the closer we get to the End the more difficult it has become. Regrettably, this difficulty has not only left His people in bondage to the world, but it has also caused them to miss the greatest blessings beyond imagination. First, we will examine the difficulty of coming out from the world and the extent of the bondage that will ultimately lead to destruction. Then, secondly, we will discuss the great blessings of taking the first steps in resisting the world and coming out of bondage. The further you come out of the world, the more you will experience blessings beyond imagination as you follow only the Good Shepherd of your soul, Jesus Christ. Dear children, I pray that you will join me on this journey that will open your eyes to a bondage you never knew existed until you are set free. Be free at last to enjoy blessings beyond measure!

To examine the difficulties, we must take a trip to the past when the world was completely different. I would like to take you back to the time before Television, the personal computer, the internet, and the cellphone ever existed. This was a different world where family and the evening meal around the same dinner table had a whole different meaning. Personal opinions about life and our shared struggles were typically only shared and received among the family unit or select friends that we had developed over time by having a real face-to-face relationship. Life was simpler. Even among our peers of teachers, preachers, professors, and employers, there was a common acceptance of family and religious values that always took precedence over varied opinions. But now we live in a different age, an Information Age, where information is extremely varied and coming at us at the speed of light utilizing the latest technologies of the cellphone, internet, social media, 24-hour news, and artificial intelligence that have been instrumental in spreading this information. Tragically, family values no longer take precedence. Religious values no longer take precedence. It’s as though the whole world is being pulled in multiple directions at the same time causing great confusion, increasing psychological problems, and even suicide.

So, how does this massive amount of information cause such horridness bondage? We need to take another trip further back in time, this time to the First Century when the simple Gospel was presented to the fallen world. The world of the First Century was not much different than today. Satan had been busy for many years sowing confusion among the world’s population by giving them multiple gods, multiple religions, and even the beginning of science to chart a new path on creationism and expert opinions for all of life. The simple Gospel presented by the early Apostles faced an uphill battle with all the various opinions sowing unbelievable confusion among the masses. God’s Word to the masses of humanity was the same then as it is today. The message was to come out from among them, for it is the only way to help fallen humanity to accept only the clear teachings of the Gospel. The message of the Gospel was not the insertion of another god to be put on the same level as the rest. The Gospel proclaimed that there was only one God and only one truth essentially invalidating all the other gods and truths of the Roman Empire and the known world. Consequently, this made those proclaiming this new truth an enemy of the State, which led to the most horrific persecution against God’s children who had been called to come out from among them and be separate.

The Gospel cannot be integrated with the many lies of the devil taught by fallen humanity, then and now. The moment you integrate God’s truth with the massive information coming from the powers of darkness, then you have lost the effectiveness of the Gospel to truly transform lives. This integration currently accepted by humanity has created the lukewarm church (Revelation 3:14-22). Yes, Satan is doing the same thing today as he did two thousand years ago to sow confusion and controversy in the world. But now he’s got much more help with all the technology especially artificial intelligence (AI) that will end up being the Image of the Beast (Revelation 13:15). Humanity will become so addicted to this continuous flow of information that they will believe that they simply cannot live without it helping them to organize their lives and become all they envision themselves to be. Here’s the problem, a day is coming quickly that AI will know who you are and if you are depending on its information flow to keep you in bondage; simply put, if you are not plugged in you could be targeted for elimination. Yes, modern-day believers will also face persecution, but I am afraid it will be much more limited because most believers will remain happily in bondage to the Image of the Beast (AI) that will lead the entire world to worship the Antichrist. Step by step this bondage will grow more intense by leading all of humanity to believe that they can change the world by using their own power to elect the right person and passing the right laws, which is only an allusion to keep you in bondage to Satan and the powers of darkness.

Yes, it will be difficult to give up all those apps on your cellphone that connect you to the fallen world. However, after the multitude of voices from the world begin to fade away you will be in store for the greatest blessings of your life. You will discover quickly that God embraces our silence and solitude especially when we are eager to listen to Him alone. As I attempted to explain in a previous article it is amazing what God can do to an uncluttered and unconfused mind that’s no longer in bondage to Satan leading you from pillar to post. The longer we are truly out of the world, it’s absolutely amazing the clarity of God’s Word that takes precedence in our life. As priorities begin to shift we see the importance of building only face-to-face relationships that go well beyond the rehearsed greetings known well by the fallen world. The fallen world, in captivity to Satan, finds it extremely difficult to build in-depth relationships where their hidden faults might be exposed. Unfortunately, we live in a new world where people have become accustomed to hiding behind fake photos and hiding deep-seated problems on social media and this behavior has followed them into the real world. There is no wonder that the many different avatars have become so popular, choosing the one that best suits their fantasy.

When we truly come out of captivity and build strong relationships with other believers, we begin to see the wonder of being transformed in Christ that desires to build a new community of self-giving, agape love. As pride gives way to humility, we begin to see that we have no power to change the world. We realize that only God can change the world, not through the ballot box or passing new laws, but through helping people see the power of the Gospel to change hearts and minds. We realize that we can’t, but God can change the world one person at a time. This was the belief of the early Church that came out from among them, faced persecution, and challenged the world. Yes, it will be difficult to come out from among them, but the rewards are great. Putting off the old sin nature and putting on Christ, step by step, through transformation will allow you to overcome every so-called emotional and psychological problem. The old life will truly pass away, behold all things become new (II Corinthians 5:17). Let us pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven by rejecting the political path and embracing only God’s path of changing humanity one person at a time through the power of the Gospel. To witness that will be the greatest blessing that you can possibly imagine. Come out from among them now, my dear children, and witness the power of God.

Brown Shirts and Lukewarm Christianity

Historically speaking both terms, brown shirts and lukewarm Christianity, have been used to describe a very dark period in the past with an astonishing relevance for today. The last Church to be described in the Book of Revelation had a very unique problem. They were neither hot nor cold, so Jesus Christ described them as being lukewarm. These end-time Christians held tightly to their professed religious doctrines but at the same time embraced many of the teachings from the world, which took precedence. These worldly beliefs could easily sway their behavior towards immorality willing to strike out violently at anyone who would disagree. In their hearts, they believed that they were Christians following the chosen path but in their actions they believed that they were on a higher path toward bringing renewal to a world or country that had lost its way. The match that lit the fire was believing that they were the only ones who possessed the truth, believing that everyone else must be false prophets or working for the enemy. This attitude of always being correct, even with known conspiracy theories, not only divides a nation, but it sends a very sharp blade right down the very heart of Christianity.

Now, who are these brown shirts? We need to take a trip back in time when a European nation was in deep trouble financially with many teetering on the edge of absolute poverty. Many fingers were being pointed at one another, but no one had a viable solution. One man did arise proclaiming a solution but was quickly removed and eventually sent to prison where he wrote Mein Kampf pointing his finger not only against the establishment but also the Jews. Yes, Germany was considered a Christian nation desperately looking for some great leader to make them a great nation again. They became a nation easily swayed to allow hate to enter their hearts for anyone who would stand in the way of Germany’s success. Lukewarm Christians along with others would dawn their brown shirts and violently strike back at all those who stood in the way of Germany’s restoration to glory. Yes, Adolf Hitler arose leading an entire nation to strike back at all those who stood in his way of making Germany great again and making all true Germans proud of their bloodline as a chosen race. Yes, with a so-called just cause even moral Christians can be swayed to fight back making them lukewarm in the sight of a loving and merciful God. Jesus said, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16).

Let us pray that we are not on the same path as Germany was under Hitler. As a Nation, many believe that we have lost our greatness and are seeking a leader who will make our nation great again. But at what cost? If we blindly follow a self-righteous and prideful man, then we will produce our own brown shirts to fight against the establishment and anyone else who stands in the way of becoming great again. In many ways, it has already started by allowing hate to reign in our hearts against the other side, the immigrant, the foreigner, and anyone else who disagrees with us. Dear children, we must not become the brown shirts for Trump or any other leader. Jesus Christ is our only true leader, and He has already given us a unique path to walk. Christ’s path is to come out from among them, all of them, on both sides (Revelation 18:4-5). The path of Christ is totally different than anything in the world. It is a heavenly path that brings truth and righteousness to all sides. When we truly come out from among then we will see clearly the path of righteousness, which is to do God’s will on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:9-10). Let that sink in. When we follow God’s will alone we will see heaven opened up to brand new possibilities. We will easily identify lukewarm Christianity from classic Christianity taught by Jesus Christ.

Lukewarm Christianity says they have the power in themselves to overthrow Satan, establish God’s dominion here on earth, and more importantly utilize the political establishment or brute force to accomplish their goals. Their lack of success in overthrowing Satan is proved by how quickly the world is sinking deeper and deeper into the pit of horrific unrighteousness. Furthermore, lukewarm Christians have been blinded by Satan to overlook or even accept the bad behavior of their own leaders in both the political and religious realms. On the other hand, classic Christianity utilizes God’s methods of leading people to Christ and helping them to become transformed in Christ one person at a time. Christ’s method is not through brute force and political action but through God calling them individually into His Kingdom of righteousness. Instead of wearing brown shirts to wreak havoc on our neighbors, we have the gift of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone. Only the Gospel has the power unto salvation (Romans 1:16). Instead of pride and arrogance we walk in humility considering others better than ourselves (Philippians 2:3; Ephesians 4:2). Instead of outrageous greed seeking to build an empire here on earth we lay up our treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21). Instead of hating others who disagree we have learned how to love even our enemies (Matthew 5:43-48). To keep one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom will guarantee your place in lukewarm Christianity and a brown shirt especially fitted for you to follow the prideful and self-righteous Antichrist. God forbid.

Right now, the world is primed for the Antichrist and his brown shirts to rule the world. As I am writing this article even more countries, especially in Europe, have chosen the path of radical right to rule their people, which will play into the hands of the coming Antichrist. Donald Trump has sown seeds of hate into the hearts of his faithful followers in nearly every speech causing many to rise up against the establishment and anyone else that disagrees with his mandate. Donald Trump follows some of the same demeaning rhetoric as his predecessor Adolf Hitler against the immigrants, the legal system, and anyone else who disagrees with him. Donald Trump has not been open about his ancestry roots from Germany by his grandfather who was a German immigrant. If he becomes a dictator on day one of his presidency, as promised, then the resurrection of the brown shirts from the ranks of lukewarm Christianity could cause the greatest persecution against God’s anointed children since the First Century. Dear children, we must come out from among them now, bringing as many professed believers as possible. There is nothing we can do to stop the Antichrist. The one thing we can do is to prepare for the days ahead by proclaiming the truth to our family, friends, and everyone else we encounter. When the Antichrist takes his seat in the most powerful nation in the world, then the fulfillment of prophecy and the inevitable will happen. The only question we need to ask ourselves is: “Will you be persecuted, or will you be the persecutor? I pray that you will follow classic Christianity taught by Jesus and not lukewarm Christianity taught by self-righteous man.

Please Join Me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have seen the great falling away even among our own families. Our hearts are deeply grieved that they will not recognize their own falling away because they have followed the path of lukewarm Christianity. They will not recognize or admit that they have one foot in the world following its teachings and one foot in the Kingdom attempting to follow your teachings exclusively. We pray that they will recognize that this great falling away opens the door to the Antichrist to lead your children even further away from the truth. We pray that their eyes will be open to the great deception of believing that they can overthrow Satan and build the kingdom, making their world great again, through the political process. We pray that you show them your righteous path of building the Kingdom one person at a time by casting off the hate for the other side, taught by the political elite, and only walking in true love for even their enemies. Oh Lord, teach them again the power of transformation to truly change lives beyond the ineffectiveness of manmade laws. We pray this is the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” (II Thessalonians 2:3).

The Strength of Satan’s Hold

The strength of Satan’s hold on humanity, especially among young people is both terrifying and unimaginable. It is unimaginable because most cannot fathom it and it’s terrifying because it divides all of humanity. You might think that the most notable division is between the West and the East. Well, it goes much deeper than that, you truly have the Western world and the newly formed Eastern alliance, but the division we are looking for is those who follow Jesus Christ exclusively and those who are easily led astray by the political and religious powers of our day. Although these strong political powers are in league with religious groups to appear righteous, they primarily sway the masses through political persuasion. Their religious ploy is to make them appear righteous, which effectively covers up their extreme lawlessness in the eyes of their followers. Only Satan could wield such great power over the masses making them believe that they are following righteousness when all along they are following the powers of darkness and the soon-revealed Antichrist. This is the real division that is separating nations, churches, political parties, and families. This tragic separation will continue to the end bringing unbelievable heartache.

Proof That The World is Ending

Most people have heard the prophecies that the world is ending. Most people have followed science that also claims that the world is ending if we don’t stop the causes of global warming. There is one other proof that should awaken all of humanity across every race and different belief system. This proof takes the hypothesis that we have been created by a higher being that has held the entire universe together since the beginning, either as a free form of biological evolution adapting to a changing environment or as a static form of creationism for the sole purpose of serving our Creator. Either way, I hypothesize that we were created to serve our Creator, and if that changes then there is no longer any need to maintain the created universe in its present form; it must be brought to an end. The whole purpose of the created order was to serve the Creator and if that changes, then there’s no longer any need for the creation to exist, which prophetically leads true believers to a new heavens and a new earth. Remember, God had no problem destroying the world with water the first time that humanity turned away from Him (Genesis 6:5). This time God will destroy the world and all of humanity with fire from the sun. Continue reading Proof That The World is Ending

The Slippery Slope of Deception

People are deceived when they think they have a new truth that no one else has, a truth, beyond scripture and the words of God. It typically starts with conspiracy theories, theories that cannot be proved. Although conspiracy theories may appear to be logical and easily accepted by those who distrust the establishment or the other political party, they will never be accepted as truth by those who have come out from among them and remain separate. Once you lose the anchor of God’s holy word and the indwelling Spirit you become open for every deception of the devil, his antichrist, and the false prophet. It becomes a very slippery slope moving you further away from God and His unchanging truth. The further you move away, the more the commands of God get lost in the rear-view mirror. What makes deception even more difficult in today’s world is everyone claims to have their own corner on the truth bringing great confusion among the people. This so-called truth is cemented in their social media echo chamber causing greater division among the population and driving them further away from God’s unchanging truth. When this happens everything seems more plausible opening the door to deception and every conspiracy theory. Continue reading The Slippery Slope of Deception
