The Third Woe Ends the War (Video)

The war for the souls of mankind has been raging for over two thousand years. In my last two articles, we looked at the first two woes, demonstrating that they both began in the first century, even though their greatest effect upon fallen humanity wasn’t realized until the sixth century. Moreover, these two woes have progressively gotten worse through the centuries until the present day. Today, we will look at the third woe that corresponds with the seventh trumpet giving us a glimpse at the end from the beginning; a time of great rejoicing in heaven because the war has finally been won.

The Third Woe Ends the War

The war for the souls of mankind has been raging for over two thousand years. In my last two articles, we looked at the first two woes, demonstrating that they both began in the first century, even though their greatest effect upon fallen humanity wasn’t realized until the sixth century. Moreover, these two woes have progressively gotten worse through the centuries until the present day. Today, we will look at the third woe that corresponds with the seventh trumpet giving us a glimpse at the end from the beginning; a time of great rejoicing in heaven because the war has finally been won. (Read Revelation 11:14-19). Hallelujah! It’s essential to understand that the book of Revelation is not a static prophecy nor is it a prophecy incapsulated for some future date. It is a very dynamic prophecy relevant for every age giving us direction, hope, and encouragement to stand firm in the midst of the war being waged for the souls of humanity. To fully understand the third woe, it will be necessary to review six chapters in the book of Revelation along with the important interludes, four separate acts, that we will discuss as they appear in the Revelation. Bear with me during this heart-stopping drama, for it’s well worth the journey.

Before the seventh trumpet announces the third woe, the Church needs to understand its role in the war effort. (Read Revelation 10:1-11) Act One. The beautiful symbolism of the prophet eating the “Little Scroll” demonstrates that he (or the church’s prophetic witness) will receive a deeper understanding of this prophecy in each of their respective ages. It also promises that they will fully understand the prophecy in the final hours of the war being waged against humanity by the powers of darkness. The “Seven Thunders” indicates that the mystery of God is not about kingdoms and earthly powers but about proclaiming the transformation of every man in Christ as the key to winning the war. Act Two. Once the Church truly understands the prophetic message then they will effectively stand against the worldly powers propped up by Satan. This effective witness is symbolized by the “Two Witnesses” (Read Revelation 11:1-13) As long as the Church’s witness is focused on personal evangelism, they have great power (See II Corinthians 10:4-6). However, in the last hour, the coming beast will kill the witness of the Church by causing them to focus on the wrong battle by following him in his political and legalistic endeavors to build his kingdom here on earth. When the witness of the Church is finally destroyed, the beast (now clearly recognizable by the faithful remnant) will lead the world into a time of great jubilation and dancing in the streets as they send gifts one to another. His coming will also be accompanied by a great earthquake signifying a great shakeup in the world system.

After the seventh trumpet announces the third woe, there is a very important heavenly and historical interlude. Act Three. (Read Revelation 12:1-6) In this Act, we see a war being waged in heaven between the Church (the woman) and the Dragon (Satan). Clearly, what we see happening in heaven is also happening on the earth. The old church, faithful Israel, is seen bringing forth its Savior through the man child of Jesus Christ. Immediately, Satan tried to devour the child as He escaped to Egypt where God protected Him (see Revelation 12:6). This interlude is very important to the prophecy because it shows us that the war started in heaven long ago before Christ came to earth to save humanity and show them how to win the war that’s being waged against their souls. Act Four. (Read Revelation 12:7-17) In this Act, the prophecy helps us to understand how critical the war effort is for all of humanity, as we realize that Satan has been cast out of heaven making earth his new battleground. Let that sink in! There is no escaping the fact that this war that’s been raging since the first century is for the purpose of world domination and particularly the domination of God’s children. The Bible says, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). Don’t think for a minute that God’s children can find refuge in a world leader.

Now, we come to the central figure of the third woe, the beast coming out of the sea (Read Revelation 13:1-10). Although the beast and the powers of darkness have come against the Church in every age, in the last hour his attacks on humanity and God’s beloved children, in particular, will be unconscionable. His greatest power will be deception. The dragon (Satan) gave the beast “his power, and his seat, and great authority” (see Revelation 13:2). This is much more than just physical power, it’s spiritual power, the power of persuasion, and deception to lead millions astray. I should not be surprised that his followers will actually worship the dragon (Satan) because he gave his power to the beast (see Revelation 13:4) Before you object, anyone who does not surrender their life completely to the Lordship of Christ is already under control of the evil one following his lead, first in their thoughts, then in their actions. I believe many will worship anyone, including Satan, who would allow them to build “a brave new world!” A world with no restrictions or condemnations from religion. To reject God is accepting what the devil offers, unleashed immorality, beyond Sodom and Gomorrah. Perhaps, what’s most disturbing to me is that he will overcome the saints (see Revelation 13:7). Most will be overcome because they are no longer fighting the war by winning people to Christ but are trying to legislate morality through their political party or forcing people to do what they believe to be righteous and just. Clearly, they are fighting the wrong battle and losing the war.

This beast in the last hour has a lot of help from the religious type beast (or the second beast) (Read Revelation 13:11-18). Perhaps, this has been the problem from the beginning where religious leaders are propping up their favorite dictator or simply those willing to fulfill the desires of the lukewarm Church. Throughout Church history, they have always worked hand in hand, especially the Catholic Church, which often used their military might to keep their people in line though Papal Bulls, the Inquisitions, or to fulfill their will in conquering other nations. This religious type beast is particularly supportive of the first beast causing everyone to worship his image, which has the ability to speak. (Sounds a bit like the image on the monitor or television screen.) This along with many other miracles, real or unreal, allows him to control the people. It is he, (this is important friends), who causes everyone to take a mark. This is not done by the government but by a religious leader to ensure everyone is worshiping the image. We know if they refuse the mark they cannot buy or sell. I discuss the dreaded mark and the number of the beast more extensively in my book, “Final Warning.”

At this point, we are probably thinking we could use some encouragement, especially if there is just a glimmer of a possibility that we will be here when all this happens. Well, I am delighted to tell you the whole next chapter of the book of Revelation is dedicated to doing just that, giving us encouragement, direction, and hope. Please read Revelation 14:1-20. The glories of heaven await God’s chosen and beloved children, who will not be marked by the beast and his evil powers of darkness but will have on them the seal and name of their Father in heaven. We take great encouragement that we are now and always will be in the company of the Lamb of God. As God’s holy angels go forth into the whole world preaching the everlasting Gospel, we don’t sit idly by, but continue in great patience obeying the commandments of God and remaining faithful to Jesus. We also to do our part in the war effort against the powers of darkness by joining God’s holy angels in sharing the everlasting gospel and going through the open doors of opportunity they give to us, as we are led by the indwelling Spirit. There’s still hope for the wicked if they repent. We rejoice and have hope that the war will finally end with God’s righteous judgment coming upon fallen humanity to right all wrongs for the many centuries of hate and persecution directed toward His people, the true Church.

In the next three chapters, we see the climax of the third woe and the end of the war between the powers of darkness and the holiness of God. The Bible says, “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God” (Revelation 15:1). We have seen plagues from the hand of God for over two thousand years. While it woke up some in their slumber, unfortunately, most continued on their merry way and on the path to eternal damnation. Even with an increase in the number and strength of hurricanes, earthquakes, along with this latest pandemic, most are still making excuses as they close their ears to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God wishes no one to be lost, so He leaves His faithful remnant in place to continue sharing the Gospel with the hope that with the final plagues and outpouring of His wrath, fallen humanity will repent of their wickedness and turn back to God.

In the four trumpets, we saw a much gentler persuasion with only a partial outpouring of God’s wrath on fallen humanity. In each plague there is only a partial devastation. A third part of the trees is burnt up; a third part of the creatures in the sea die; a third part of the rivers and freshwater are polluted causing many men to die, and only a third part of the sky is darkened because of air pollution also causing many to die (Read Revelation 8:7-12). Even in the first two woes, only a third of humanity are affected but now it will be much different. Multiply all of our current calamities by three and you will get an idea of what’s soon to come. In each of these final bowls of God’s wrath to be poured out there will be complete and total devastation. Read Revelation 16:1-17, sores will fall on every man who takes the mark or worships the beast; every living soul in the sea will die; rivers and freshwater are totally polluted; all men are scorched with great heat from the sun; the kingdom of the beast is cast into utter darkness; the kings of the east are gathered for the great and final battle of Armageddon, and then a very mighty earthquake strikes, worse than the world has ever seen. Now ask yourself: Do you want to face this alone or do you want to face it under the power and protection of our Lord? Then, also consider your family and friends. Which is more important, saving the aspirations of your political party or the salvation of souls and winning the war? If you fight the wrong battle, you will lose the war. Dear Christian, be transformed in Christ now and start snatching people from the coming fires of eternal damnation by proclaiming the simple truth of the Gospel.

The Big Picture Will Shock You (Video)

“We can’t see the forest for the trees;” this is an old saying that has lots of meaning in today’s world. People engaged in the day to day fight cannot see the big picture. People attempting to uncover every new conspiracy theory cannot see the big picture. People who are engrossed with their own problems, cannot see the big picture. The big picture will shock you and literally turn your world upside down. Only a true prophecy from the hand of God can allow you to see the big picture. After this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

The Big Picture Will Shock You

“We can’t see the forest for the trees;” this is an old saying that has lots of meaning in today’s world. People engaged in the day to day fight cannot see the big picture. People attempting to uncover every new conspiracy theory cannot see the big picture. People who are engrossed with their own problems, cannot see the big picture. The big picture will shock you and literally turn your world upside down. Only a true prophecy from the hand of God can allow you to see the big picture. In my last article “From the Hand of God” we talked about the whole world reaping the consequences of their unrepentant sins. Today, we will back away a bit allowing you to see the big picture of what’s really happening in the world. To do that, we first need a little history lesson to help this big picture come into focus. Once we see and understand the big picture then we will allow God to direct our path going forward. This will be God’s prophetic word to the Church, to His faithful remnant living in the Last Days. May we all have eyes to see.

We are not unaware of the devil’s schemes by putting the radio and TV in every home garnering their trust by giving them programs in the beginning for the whole family with not even a hint of vulgarity. Step by step the devil would introduce a slang word here and an immoral act there. Then he would allow advertisements of drugs to help them overcome their many problems along with methods of psychological counseling in their movies. Eventually, movies would be full of shocking immorality. Then, in time the brave ones would not only accept the new morality but would venture out of their closets and teach others to do the same. In time the devil would introduce more programming to raise up legislative leaders to demand new laws to accept this new morality. Then the devil would push to remove God from both the schoolroom and the public square. To solidify this new movement, the devil would cause everyone to be connected by the internet, their individual cellphones, and Social Media. This would allow his new disciples to find one another quickly and stand against the opposition. The devil would also enlist the News outlets to fan the flames of discontent and motivate his disciples to perform all manner of lawlessness against the other side. This will bring our nation to the brink of civil war.

As the big picture comes into clearer focus, we are keenly aware of a divided nation on the precipice of being destroyed from within. This is not too unlike ancient Rome who actually fell from within. No, I don’t believe the old devil will allow this inner destruction to continue. In a very short time, he will extend an olive branch to those who claim to speak for the Holy One. He will make great promises to the other side allowing them to worship freely and still have a seat at the table. Once the agreement is reached, he will begin to rule with an iron fist demanding that everyone stay connected to receive their daily updates, his teachings, and specific directions from those in power. Severing your connection will not be an option. In time, your connected cellphone, or another more advanced device, will be used for buying and selling. It will be used to conduct business, to vote, and to control all of your other devices. How integrated this new device will be is not yet known. Everyone’s devices in this nation and around the world will be connected via high-speed internet as more satellites are being launched by SpaceX. “Starlink” will soon become a reality providing internet to every square inch of the globe.

Seeing the big picture on how the devil has been working behind the scenes for many years bringing fallen humanity to this point will shock you. It’s common knowledge that the frog doesn’t know that he’s in boiling water until it’s too late because the heat is turned up very slowly. The devil has been doing the same thing with humanity since the 1950s! Therefore, we must ask the question, “what would God have us to do?” I don’t believe we can fight back by using the weapons of this world. We must listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying to the Church. If we don’t listen carefully and get it right, we will end up with the unseen number and worshiping his image even if we don’t admit it. I firmly believe there will come a point when God’s faithful remnant will disconnect themselves and go offline. There are many things we must do before that time comes, which I have delineated below. Let me be very clear that most will not be able to do it even though they find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into the devil’s web of deception. The longer you wait the more difficult it will become, “Just ask the frog.” Dear children, this is not just another conspiracy theory. Please heed this prophetic warning while you still have time.

So, let’s talk briefly about what we need to do before we go offline and disconnect from the world. Let’s start with the easiest things first and then advance to the more difficult aspects of going offline. I would start by deactivating all of your social media accounts and deleting the apps from your cellphone and computer. This will immediately put a large hole in your life giving you a tremendous amount of time. Once you have rediscovered the joy of having more time for prayers, meditation and serving others, then you are ready to move ahead by deleting all of the news apps that keep you checking back again and again throughout the day. Now it’s time to delete all those entertainment apps from both your cellphone and Smart TV. Yes, this also includes your YouTube app, the biggest contributor to conspiracy theories and false prophecies. If you have gotten this far you are doing great! Immediately you have noticed how much time you have redeemed. The Bible says, “Redeeming the time because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). Clearly, the devil is a consumer of our time.

At this point, it’s essential to do some additional things before moving forward with disconnecting from the world. We must have face to face real relationships with other brothers and sisters who share your quest for disconnect with the world and reconnect with God through the indwelling Spirit. They will also share your desire to walk in all holiness growing from one degree of glory to another (See I Peter 1:16, and II Corinthians 3:18). They will share your desire to help others that you can reach out and touch. They will share your desire to worship our Lord daily through confession, praise, adoration, prayers, and singing hymns. It’s very important that we don’t skip this step before proceeding. God has not called us to stand alone in our struggle against the enemy. This is why Christ established the Church. I know this will be difficult for some who have relied heavily upon Social Media for relationships. Now it’s essential to find a face to face relationships, which is more difficult because you can’t just delete them if you don’t like what they say. We will be forced to bear with them by helping them to overcome their trespass. The Bible says, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2).

If you are sincerely working on the previous step, then you are ready for total disconnect with the world. When the requirement finally comes that everyone, without fail, must have a cellphone (or another device) that’s connected to your bank, credit cards, health services, political affiliation, voter registration, and news updates from the current administration, we must be ready. These requirements along with other highly suggested sites must be on every personal device. They will know the moment we go offline. We must not comply. We must disconnect. Paying will be most difficult, if not impossible if we don’t have our personal device. It’s essential that we begin to think about how we will provide for our families. It’s essential that we plan now and not wait to be turned away at the grocery store or the gas pump because we are attempting to pay with cash that’s no longer accepted. The Bible says, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:17). Just remember that every person has their own unique number once they connect to the internet. Furthermore, if we sit staring at an image on our device for any length of time, allowing it to consume our time, it could be considered worship. Prepare now to stand firm and be prepared to immediately disconnect from the world … and reconnect with God alone.

Why Do We Follow Jesus Christ? (Video)

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. After watching this video, please share it with others.
