Destruction All Around Us

Give us eyes, Oh Lord, to see the destruction all around us. Every person and creature on the planet is affected. The world cannot see. Most of your children cannot see. The unseen powers of darkness are actively controlling the minds of most, leading them to do and think the unthinkable. They have turned away from God and now rest under the powers of darkness. You can see it in their eyes as they lash out at one another. They are always accusing the other side of all their problems. What we have seen thus far with the storming of the capital is only the tip of the iceberg, what’s coming will be our worst nightmare. It’s much more than unchecked lawlessness. It’s much more than wars and rumors of war. It’s much more than the complete breakdown of society. It’s much more than an economic collapse. It’s much more than the worst calamities caused by all the so-called natural disasters. The increasing number of catastrophic earthquakes, violent hurricanes, and flooding will pale in comparison to what’s coming. Even the increasing heat index driving humanity underground to escape the unbearable heat will not compare with what’s coming. It will get so bad that people will run to the proverbial caves in the Book of Revelation to escape what’s coming upon the world (see Revelation 6:15-17).

As described in my newest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit,” humanity will create a new reality in which to escape. However, it is this new reality that will seal their fate. At this point, we still have an opportunity to turn things around, but it will not be from choosing up sides. You know what I am talking about. The East against the West, NATO against Russia, the Democrats against the Republicans, and the liberals against the conservatives. Yes, we have an opportunity to turn things around, but it will not be by accepting everyone in their perverse lifestyle, as we sing Kumbaya, in the name of tolerance. We have an opportunity to turn things around, but it will not be from sitting around a table negotiating an illustrious peace deal through the methodology of give and take. We still have an opportunity to turn things around, but not from all the government’s investigations and the displaying all the so-called facts publicly, which is only causing the division to grow deeper. We have an opportunity to turn things around, but it will not be by following the powers of darkness that are driving the division among humanity even deeper. The hate will grow to such a degree that it will be nearly impossible to live together in our current reality.

There is only one way to turn things around before we self-annihilate. The King of kings and the Lord of lords has given us the answer two thousand years ago. This same message is for God’s beloved children today, who are willing to listen to what the Spirit says to the church (see Revelation 3:22). So, let’s listen to the Spirit. We need to start by confessing our sins and asking for God’s forgiveness. We must truly believe in God as our Savior and believe that we have been given the Spirit of God to dwell within us. Now, let’s clear our minds completely of every thought. We need to listen without thinking. I know that this is a significant challenge for most, but we can ask God and He will help us to calm our minds by casting out all our conflicting thoughts and thoughts from the enemy. As we draw closer to the End of Days, the thoughts from the enemy will grow even more intense. Now, continue to pray quietly saying, “Help me, Lord, to rest in your presence alone. Let me hear only the purity of your thoughts.” Quietly praise God or quote Scripture from memory, stopping often to just listen. Take your time. In fact, the deeper you go into prayer and meditation, time will seem to stop. Dear children, if we don’t listen to the Spirit, then we will never know how to turn things around.

If we all listen to the same Spirit, then we will see and know what we must do. We cannot and must not join the enemy in his game of dividing humanity. The powers of darkness have taken the entire world by force. They are leading humanity to accept the lie for the truth, and the truth for a lie, rightly understood as deception (see II Thessalonians 2:10). Now, this is not the “run of the-mill” deception like all the so-called conspiracy theories. It is far worse. It’s far worse because you will never detect this deception by unmasking some so-called conspiracy theory. Your belief or opinion is not relevant, it goes much deeper to leading the entire world into mass confusion. The devil has purposely divided up the whole world and has invited you to pick a side, any side makes little difference to him. In reality, both sides will lead you to the pit of hell, all the while thinking that you are on the winning side. If you listen to the Spirit, then you may discover that both sides are wrong! You have been taken captive by the powers of darkness. Listening to the Spirit will help you to rightly interpret everything in the world. You will know what must be done to bring about unity among God’s beloved children, so we can stand united against the powers of darkness.

Many of God’s children have adopted the many “feel good” verses in the Bible to be repeated time and again to make themselves feel good. Unfortunately, this kind of picking and choosing of Holy Scripture has completely separated most from the holiness of God. It has separated them from those commandments that we are required to do. I see this kind of feel-good posting often on social media with very few postings of God’s “Thou Shalt Not” commandments of obedience. This has caused the church to enter into a very dark period referred to in the Bible as “the great falling away” (see II Thessalonians 2:3). When we listen to the Spirit, then we begin to hear just how far humanity has strayed from the path. We hear that we have all fallen away to some degree, even if we don’t want to admit it. The Spirit will help God’s children to understand what is really going on in the world. The Spirit will open our eyes to see everything from God’s perspective. So, our first step in standing against the enemy is putting on the new life in Christ filled with holiness (I Peter 1:15-16). Stop following the powers of darkness in choosing up sides and follow God by becoming what He wants you to be, which is entirely different than what you see in the world.

God’s spoken Word and the Bible are still as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). We have not only sinned personally, but we are also leading our children to sin or allowing it to happen. This is why it is essential to come out from among them if we are serious about turning this around (see II Corinthians 6:17-18, Revelation 18:4-5). We cannot do it from within the broken system. We cannot do it by passing new laws and picking the right candidate. We cannot do it by protesting in the streets. We cannot do it by posting feel-good posts on social media to our echo chamber. We cannot do it by letting our voices be heard at their committee meetings. There is only one option given to us by the risen Lord. We must come out from among them and be separate. We must school our own children to follow only the principles of the Kingdom (Proverbs 22:6). We must not accept the perverse lifestyles, but openly and unashamedly turn our back on them (Psalms 37:27, I Peter 3:11). We must reject all the teachings of psychology and trust in God alone, who has given us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). We must always follow the directions of the Spirit by witnessing our faith to the unbeliever (Matthew 28:18-20, I Peter 3:15). This is the only thing that will turn things around. If we don’t, then destruction is coming all around us (II Peter 3:10). We all have a choice. Either stand with the powers of darkness or stand with Christ. You cannot do both. Destruction is around us.

Being Told What to Think About

The powers of darkness have much more power and authority over our thinking than most people are willing to admit. I have been writing sermons to preach, blog articles, news briefs, and books for many years now as I am led by the Holy Spirit, but one thing I have noticed is that some things have a much greater appeal than others. I wonder if it’s just how the wind is blowing or if there is a much greater force at work leading people to either accept or reject what is being said. I have noticed also that the world can lose interest in a topic or story very quickly even if it’s of great importance. They say that humanity’s retention span is about two weeks. The news outlets and social media platforms are keen on that idea and are quick to develop new interests to pull humanity along giving them new things to pique their interest, giving them new thoughts to control them, to consume their time. As a pastor for many years, I have discovered that many who claim to know and follow the Lord are not much different than the world by always wanting something new to pique their interest. Moreover, I have found that they are always desiring new undiscovered truth instead of understanding the depth of God’s plan for humanity.

This kind of thinking has led to cults, new denominations, or religions, and even a trackback to atheism. The powers of darkness are wielding such great power upon the minds of humanity that many in our day are losing complete interest in the simple truth of Christ’s glorious Gospel. Well, I hate to disappoint you, but the simple gospel has not changed in over two thousand years. It is the same. Unfortunately, most have either forgotten it all together or they have really never known it. What they have done is added so much to the simple gospel that it’s no longer the same, and it has lost all its original power. It has simply become religious dogma or the latest doctrine to enter the church. The real untampered gospel is so powerful that it could turn the entire world upside down as it did in the first century. It is so powerful it can truly change people into something quite foreign to the modern world. It’s so powerful that the modern world would see it as an anomaly. It would truly change everything causing the powers of darkness to enact the old persecutions to stop it.

We have ventured so far away from the simple gospel that we are no longer a threat to the powers of darkness. We are no longer a threat to Satan’s reign. Like sheep, most will follow the world into an alternate reality consuming their time and telling them exactly what they should be thinking about every moment of every day. They don’t want you to be free to think for yourselves. They don’t want you to be free to do anything constructive for the Lord. They don’t want you to be free to experience the new life in Christ by being transformed from one degree of glory to another. They don’t want you to be free to hear the still small voice of God. They don’t want you to be free long enough to learn the depth and power of this simple gospel. The powers of darkness want all your time on social media believing that you are making a difference but in fact you are only doing mundane things that are not making a real difference in your life or the life of others. Eventually, they want you in the Metaverse as I explained in my new book, “God’s Loving Pursuit” where you will be led into a new alternate reality and further away from your Creator. The powers of darkness want all your time chasing the latest news articles, the latest courtroom scenes, or the next political race that promises to change everything.

Jesus Christ who originally shared the gospel first to His disciples, then to the crowds that followed Him, now continues to share it today through His faithful remnant. So, how powerful is the Gospel? It is more powerful than a double-edged sword, which means it can cut two ways, first to expose all the evil in the old sin nature and then the other way by bringing forth great conviction and deep sorrow. The Word of God in its purity with no mixture of error can prepare the soul to receive their new resident, the Holy Spirit of God. The Bible says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). When this happens, it will bring forth true repentance, then the Holy Spirit will begin immediately the process of transformation in Christ. It will bring forth an immediate joy beyond comprehension as the new disciple believes in the death and resurrection of Christ with all its promises of a new life in Christ. Unfortunately, many take this first step of faith, which opens the door, and that’s as far as they get because they start chasing one perverted doctrine after another. They never go on to experience the new life in Christ.

If we really want to experience the new life in Christ, then we must press on staying focused only on those things that will help us to put off the old life from being led around by the nose by the powers of darkness. This is a big step that many never take; what they do in the place of it is learn how to play church. You will quickly learn that putting off the old life will drive you further and further away from the fallen world, (and even alienating you from many of your fellow church members). It will cause you to loathe the sin exposed in your life moving you to stop the trespass immediately. You will soon discover that with every evil put out of our life there is a corresponding good to be put in the place of it. This corresponding good comes from the Holy Spirit most often through the reading of the Bible, which was written under the inspiration of the Spirit. Putting the good in the place of the bad will gloriously fill your time causing you to grow up in Christ, to become all that He wants you to be. In time those things in the world that keep fallen humanity busy are no longer appealing.

Being satisfied with the simple Gospel and putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ will have a profound effect upon you. It will drive you to face-to-face relationships with people who are doing the same. These new relationships will discover new ways to teach their children privately. They will discover new ways to occupy their time in worship and praise. They will discover how to use their Spiritual gifts to build others up in Christ, which will take more time than they think. They will discover how to truly come out from among those in the fallen world. They will continually look to Jesus Christ alone to direct their path every moment of every day. In these new relationships, you will soon discover that this is God’s plan for humanity, a magnificent plan of allowing God’s love to flow through you to others. Stop for a moment and try to imagine a world like this, a world built on godly love for one another. When this begins to happen, believe me, the world will take notice. They will do everything in their power to stop what Christ is doing in your midst. However, God’s chosen children will continue to spread the gospel among the heathen trusting in Christ to bring the victory (see Revelation 19:11-21). It was possible in the first century for just a brief moment in time after the resurrection of Christ and it can be possible again through faith. Lord, raise up your faithful remnant like the army from heaven to bring forth your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven (see Matthew 6:10)

The Great Tribulation is Now

I have been teaching and preaching on the Book of Revelation and specifically the Great Tribulation for over 40 years. I have written about the Three Woes, the Seven Trumpets, and the Final Bowls of God’s wrath showing how they are being unveiled in our present day. I have demonstrated that many of them started many years ago and progressively intensified to the present day. I have written about the Two Witnesses signifying the combined witness of God’s Holy Church, His Faithful witnesses, up to the present day. Although I have believed for some time now that we have already entered the Great Tribulation, two more recent events have convinced me that we are, along with the powerful voice of God’s indwelling Spirit given to every true believer. We will unpack these two events demonstrating that they both have gotten progressively worse in the past few years. We will start with the great confusion orchestrated by the devil himself to convince God’s beloved children that they do not need to prepare for the coming of Christ in Judgment. Then we will unpack the second, which is the final steps in building the New World Order and the Great City that will rule over the Kings of the earth as the Kings of the East also gather their forces together for the Battle of Armageddon.

I believe that sowing the seeds of confusion is one of Satan’s greatest weapons. He has used this weapon from the first century until the present day. In each age, witnessed by the Trail of Blood, the faithful remnant has stood against this confusion by proclaiming the unfiltered truth directly from the indwelling Spirit. As the church added new and strange doctrines to the church, the faithful remnant stood their ground in the face of great persecution and the horrendous torture caused by the Inquisitions of the Catholic Church. They stood their ground to repel godless teachings brought in from the fallen world. This Satanic weapon of confusion has progressively gotten worse in our day because he knows that his time is growing short as we enter the Great Tribulation. For the first seventeen hundred years, the Church believed that the Holy Scriptures taught that we would all go through the Great Tribulation so that the Bride of Christ could be prepared to meet Christ by being cleansed of all unrighteousness. Well, this all dramatically changed when a new doctrine entered the modern church teaching her children that they would be secretly caught up or raptured before the Great Tribulation. They instantly turned a marvelous verse of Scripture (See I Thessalonians 5:9) concerning the truth that we would be shielded from God’s wrath unleashed on fallen humanity since the first century to a false hope that we would be delivered from the Great Tribulation.

Well, the confusion did not stop there but has progressively turned into something far worse. Satan’s goal has not changed since the first century, he still wants to destroy God’s Church. This teaching of the Pre-tribulation Rapture just wouldn’t do, he needed something far worse. He needed to turn the hearts and minds of God’s children away from their Savior. He needed to evaporate all their time so that they would have no time to grow up in Christ Jesus. That they would have no time to be all that God had called them to be in Christ. This was partially accomplished by putting the television in every home, but something far worse was needed. So, Satan established all the social media platforms giving every person a voice to spread their malicious lies, false theories, corrupt theology, and false prophecies. This has done more damage to God’s children than any other thing thus far. It has created so much confusion about God’s holy truth that most don’t even know the whole truth leaving them in bondage to the powers of darkness. When we think it can’t get any worse, then we discover that Satan has his greatest weapon prepared to render a final knockout blow to the church. I won’t say too much about it here, because I have covered it in detail in my newest book, God’s Loving Pursuit, which is, A Prophecy About the Metaverse. Just be assured at this point when people enter the Metaverse, then they will have brazenly cut their selves off from their Creator. They will have rejected God for an alternate reality.

Before we turn to the second event in world history, let me say that due to all the confusion sown by the enemy, God’s true witnesses will be rejected by many because of their own perverse interpretations of God’s Holy Word. So, now we turn to the second event in world history that has convinced me that we have now officially entered the Great Tribulation. This is so huge on the screen of world events that most have missed it all together by getting caught up in the many insignificant details orchestrated by the enemy. The easiest way to interpret the New World Order from a biblical perspective is to let the Bible speak for itself. The Bible says, “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:18). During the Great Tribulation, there will have already arisen a great city that reigns over the kings of the earth. This great city is not only powerful enough to reign over all the kings of the Western alliance, but she is extremely wealthy spreading her money wherever needed to accomplish her purposes upon the earth. The Bible describes her as, “And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!” (Revelation 18:16). She is so wealthy that the merchants of the entire world seek to sell her their goods (see Revelation 18:3). Nearly everything purchased in the great city or nation has a label attached to it as being manufactured in a foreign county.

This great city is so powerful that she will attempt to either overthrow foreign governments or prop them up with an excessive amount of money to purchase everything needed to hold the line against the aggressor, specifically the Kings of the East. As she wields her power over the Western alliance and the kings of the earth, she will solidify her New World Order against all those who pose a threat to her democratic rule or her dominion over her people to accept her lies as the truth. As she leads her people further into all manner of unrighteousness and further away from their God through mass confusion, she paves the way for one to arise requiring allegiance by all. God is not blind as to what’s happening as she leads the other kings on the earth to follow her in her debauchery, for the Bible says, “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” (Revelation 18:3). Well, what’s coming is a judgment against the Whore of Babylon (the great city) as the Kings of the East gather their forces together for the great battle of Armageddon.

As the world shudders at the approaching apocalypse, they are contending with all the woes and plagues in the Book of Revelation. With the full exposition (exegetical interpretation) of the plagues and woes from the Book of Revelation, we can easily see each of them in our current day progressively getting worse. Although we believe that humanity’s attempt to stop everything related to global warming and the increasing viruses as negligent, it should not stop God’s children from expressing hope if they repent of their many transgressions and return to their Creator. Although we believe that humanity’s attempt to stop the wars and create peace among all men as negligent, it should not stop God’s children from being a beacon of hope by witnessing the truth about God’s amazing love to transform humanity in Christ if they turn back to their Savior. At the same time, it is imperative that God’s children not join humanity in their ungodly entertainment, their perverted lifestyles, or participate in their many sins (see Revelation 18:4-5). Dear children, before Armageddon, the entire world will run for the caves in the Book of Revelation to escape their reality as I have presented in my new book, God’s Loving Pursuit, to make one last appeal to all the people on earth. May we all understand the depth of God’s love and accept it before it’s too late. We have officially entered the Great Tribulation. Armageddon is on the horizon

Satan’s Surreptitious Drive to Globalization

Someone who has grown up in the West, and specifically in America, with certain inalienable rights along with the freedom to prosper financially with hard work and determination, is likely to find this article difficult to read. Any person who has fond memories of public education that always started with the pledge of allegiance to one nation under God and a prayer to the Christian God recognized by all, will find it difficult.  A person who grew up in quieter times with front porches, friendly neighbors, and big Sunday meals with the whole family around the same table is discovering that those days are now far behind us. Although we had our occasional hooligan, bomb shelters, and the civil rights movement, generally it was the best of times when the rest of the world seemed distant. Except for a few diplomats and some far-flung missionaries, most only saw foreign countries as a nice place to visit. Well, in the past sixty years everything has changed, not all at once, but one step at a time where most didn’t recognize it. Some, now, are beginning to wake up and wonder how did we get here? Have we entered a different reality that is literally pulling itself apart or is this Satan’s surreptitious drive to globalization? Continue reading Satan’s Surreptitious Drive to Globalization

The Coming Storm

When we think of a coming storm, we immediately think of what can be seen or witnessed by the human eye. There is another storm coming greater than all the storms and so-called natural disasters in history. It’s greater than all the wars that have been fought. It’s worse than all the diseases and pandemics that have ever fallen upon humanity. This coming storm will affect nearly every human on planet earth. It’s so horrific that any attempt to explain it will fall woefully short. This coming storm cannot be seen by the naked eye or touched by the human hand, but it will be clearly known and experienced. So, what is this coming storm that’s so frightening that it will drive the entire world into the camp of the enemy to become his willing servants? To help us to understand this coming storm we need to fathom the depth of fear. Fear has been one of the greatest motivators throughout all of history. In some measure, every human is motivated by fear. The greater the fear, the greater the motivation. We will discuss the depths of fear that in time will expose or unveil this unseen storm coming upon all of humanity. Continue reading The Coming Storm
