IS GOD IN CONTROL?

“God will be lawful in everything. Lucifer is the god of this world and God will allow him to run it…”

“But God is in control!” I cannot tell you how many times I have seen that comment under posts describing war, chaos and End-Times Prophecy. It seems, that for some, the idea that God is in control provides comfort in ignorance. Many seem to believe that they do not have to think or study because, “God is in Control.”

That brings two questions to mind:

  1. If that is true, is it an excuse for ignorance?
  2. Is it True? Is God really in control?

Let us briefly consider the first question. Scripture tells us what to watch for and Jesus, repeatedly commanded us to watch. I believe that to choose ignorance is a sin. If Scripture tells us what to watch for and Jesus commands us to watch, not to watch is to live in sin and rebellion, daily disobeying the direct command of Jesus Christ. Let us assume, for a moment, that God really is in total control, micromanaging every detail of current events. Does that fact excuse those who refuse to watch? I do not think so. “God is in control,” is not an excuse for willful ignorance.

What about the second question, is God really in total control of everything? We need to look at that question from two different perspectives:

  1. Eternal
  2. Day to day

From an eternal perspective, the answer is certainly yes. God is outside of time. He sees the end from the beginning. When time comes to an end, everything will have turned out exactly as He planned in the eternal past, before He created time. God will have his way. Every prophecy of the Book will be fulfilled. In that sense, God is in control.

I am going to propose however, that most of what happens in the world, on a daily basis, is not under God’s control but rather, under control of Lucifer, who is, according to the Bible, “the god of this world.” On a local basis, some things are the result of demonic activity but most things that happen are a result of the sinful actions of sinful people.

Adam was the first “god of this world.” God gave Adam dominion over the world and everything in it. When Adam sinned, that title, and all the authority that goes with it, was given to the Nachash, Satan, the Devil, Lucifer or whatever you would call him. When Jesus came, the Devil took him to a high place and showed him all the Kingdoms of the earth. Satan offered those kingdoms, with all the riches and power associated with them, to Jesus, if Jesus would only bow down and worship him. Jesus, we know, refused the offer. What He did not do was to challenge the Devil’s legal authority or ability to carry through on his promise. Jesus accepted Lucifer as the rightful god of this world.

Matthew 4: 8 Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”

If God was in control, in the way that many assume, Jesus would have called Satan’s bluff. Jesus would have laughed at the Devil… “My Father controls everything… You can’t do that!” But, for the moment, Satan does have that authority and he is, very much, in control.

God will be lawful in everything. Lucifer is the god of this world and God will allow him to run it. God wins in the end. God knows what the Devil is going to do and He has told us about it in his Word. We know, not only that God will win, but all the major events on the road to Armageddon. We are watching those events take place before our very eyes.

The thing that escapes those who use “God is in control” as an answer to every problem, is that Lucifer wins. The Devil gives power to the Beast and the Beast defeats the Church. We lose! On an earthly plain, we are the losers.

Daniel 7:21 “I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them…”

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

Of course, we go to Heaven and return with Jesus Christ when He defeats the forces of evil in the valley of Megiddo…

If God was in control, the Beast could not make war against the Saints or overcome them. Everything is not going to work out well. One Christian is being martyred for his faith every fifteen minutes… Today, all day long. The United States will be destroyed. American and British Christians are going to suffer, just like the saints in the Middle East are suffering today… God is not going to stop that. There is no exemption. “every tribe, people, language, and nation” means “every tribe, people, language, and nation.”

“God is in control” is not even true. God will win. God knows. God permits. But God is not in control… the Devil is in control. This is his world.

“God is in control” is not an excuse for ignorance, nor is it a bed under which you can hide. You need to learn what to watch for. You need to obey the command of your Savior and “Watch.” You need to prepare, both spiritually and physically for the chaos, the turmoil and the pain that is coming. You must be prepared to die.

You cannot hide but you can watch, you can be aware, you can prepare and you can make Heaven your home.

THE NEW TESTAMENT AND THE LAW

What follows is Scripture. If you are a “Kosher-Kristian”, under the Law of Moses, please do not read these Scriptures. They will ruin your life…

Acts

The law is an unbearable yoke.

Acts 15:10 Now then, why are you testing God by putting a yoke on the disciples’ necks that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear? 11 On the contrary, we believe we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus in the same way they are.”

Romans

The law reveals sin but cannot fix it.

Romans 3:20 For no one will be justified in His sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law.

If the law worked then faith would be irrelevant.

Romans 4:14 If those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made empty and the promise is canceled.

The purpose of the law was to increase sin.

Romans 5:20 The law came along to multiply the trespass. But where sin multiplied, grace multiplied even more.

Christians are not under the law.

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

Christians have been delivered from the law.

Romans 7:1 Since I am speaking to those who understand law, brothers, are you unaware that the law has authority over someone as long as he lives? 2 For example, a married woman is legally bound to her husband while he lives. But if her husband dies, she is released from the law regarding the husband. 3 So then, if she gives herself to another man while her husband is living, she will be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law. Then, if she gives herself to another man, she is not an adulteress.

4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death in relation to the law through the crucified body of the Messiah, so that you may belong to another—to Him who was raised from the dead—that we may bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions operated through the law in every part of us and bore fruit for death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law.

The law is good, perfect and holy but cannot help you be good, perfect or holy.

Romans 7: 7 What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet. 8 And sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind. For apart from the law sin is dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life 10 and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me. 11 For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.

The law which promises life only brings death through sin.

Romans 7: 9 Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life 10 and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me. 11 For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.

The law makes you sinful beyond measure.

Romans 7:13 13 Therefore, did what is good cause my death? Absolutely not! On the contrary, sin, in order to be recognized as sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment, sin might become sinful beyond measure.

The law is weak.

Romans 8:1 Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, 2 because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, 4 in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

1 Corinthians

 The strength of sin is the law

1 Corinthians 15:56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

2 Corinthians

 The law is a ministry of death.

2 Corinthians 3:7 Now if the ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stones, came with glory, so that the Israelites were not able to look directly at Moses’ face because of the glory from his face–a fading glory—

The law is a ministry of condemnation.

2 Corinthians 3:9 For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness overflows with even more glory.

The law has no glory at all in comparison with the New Covenant.

2 Corinthians 3:10 In fact, what had been glorious is not glorious now by comparison because of the glory that surpasses it.

The law is fading away.

2 Corinthians 3:11 For if what was fading away was glorious, what endures will be even more glorious.

Anywhere the law is preached it produces a mind-hardening and a heart-hardening veil.

2 Corinthians 3:14 but their minds were closed. For to this day, at the reading of the old covenant, the same veil remains; it is not lifted, because it is set aside only in Christ. 15 Even to this day, whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their hearts,

Galatians

 The law justifies nobody.

Galatians 2:15 15 We who are Jews by birth and not “Gentile sinners” 16 know that no one is justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ.

Christians are dead to the law.

Galatians 2:19 For through the law I have died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ

The law frustrates grace.

Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.

To go back to the law after embracing faith is “stupid”.

Galatians 3:1 You foolish Galatians! Who has hypnotized you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was vividly portrayed as crucified? 2 I only want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now going to be made complete by the flesh? 4 Did you suffer so much for nothing—if in fact it was for nothing? 5 So then, does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law or by hearing with faith?

The law curses all who practice it and fail to do it perfectly.

Galatians 3:10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written: Everyone who does not continue doing everything written in the book of the law is cursed.

The law has nothing to do with faith.

Galatians 3:11 Now it is clear that no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous will live by faith. 12 But the law is not based on faith; instead, the one who does these things will live by them.

The law was a curse that Christ redeemed us from.

Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, because it is written: Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.

The law functioned in God’s purpose as a temporary covenant from Moses till John the Baptist announced Christ.

Galatians 3: 16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say “and to seeds,” as though referring to many, but referring to one, and to your seed, who is Christ. 17 And I say this: The law, which came 430 years later, does not revoke a covenant that was previously ratified by God and cancel the promise. 18 For if the inheritance is from the law, it is no longer from the promise; but God granted it to Abraham through the promise. 19 Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise was made would come. The law was put into effect through angels by means of a mediator.

If the law worked God would have used it to save us.

Galatians 3:21 Is the law therefore contrary to God’s promises? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly be by the law.

The law was our prison.

Galatians 3:23 Before this faith came, we were confined under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith was revealed.

The law makes you a slave like Hagar.

Galatians 4:21 Tell me, those of you who want to be under the law, don’t you hear the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and the other by a free woman. 23 But the one by the slave was born according to the impulse of the flesh, while the one by the free woman was born as the result of a promise. 24 These things are illustrations, for the women represent the two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai and bears children into slavery—this is Hagar.

Ephesians

 Christ has abolished the law which was a wall of hostility

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. 14 For He is our peace, who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility. In His flesh, 15 He made of no effect the law consisting of commands and expressed in regulations, so that He might create in Himself one new man from the two, resulting in peace. 16 He did this so that He might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross and put the hostility to death by it.

Philippians

 Paul considered everything the law gained him as “skybalon” which is Greek for “poop”.

Philippians 3:4 although I once also had confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he has grounds for confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised the eighth day; of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; regarding the law, a Pharisee; 6 regarding zeal, persecuting the church; regarding the righteousness that is in the law, blameless.

7 But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss (skybalon) because of Christ.

1 Timothy

 The law is only good if used in the right context.

1 Timothy 1:8 But we know that the law is good, provided one uses it legitimately. 9 We know that the law is not meant for a righteous person, but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and irreverent, for those who kill their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral and homosexuals, for kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching…

Hebrews

 The law is weak, useless and makes nothing perfect.

Hebrews 7:18 So the previous command is annulled because it was weak and unprofitable 19 (for the law perfected nothing), but a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

God has found fault with it and created a better covenant, enacted on better promises.

Hebrews 8: 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second one.

It is obsolete, growing old and ready to vanish.

Hebrews 8:13 By saying, a new covenant, He has declared that the first is old. And what is old and aging is about to disappear.

It is only a shadow of good things to come and will never make someone perfect.

Hebrews 10:1 Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the actual form of those realities, it can never perfect the worshipers by the same sacrifices they continually offer year after year.

SPEAKING TRUTH IN LOVE

The fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive…

Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ.

My wife is the most loving, kind and considerate Christian I know. Jesus loved Cathy enough to save her and He loves you enough to save you. Cathy will love you into the Kingdom. Everybody loves Cathy.

We are opposites. I am mean, ugly, hardheaded and doctrinally correct. I will speak the truth as I find it in Scripture and as the Spirit convicts, but nobody feels the love.

It isn’t that I don’t love people. I love them enough to point out the truth, even when I know that the truth will greatly offend them and that they will reject that truth. I want to just be loving. I want everybody to love me. I want people around me to feel the love of Jesus, like it was just oozing out of my bones. You do not know how desperately I desire that, but these are desperate times and the truth keeps getting in the way.

The truth, however ugly and counter-culture it may be, can be spoken in love. I know that because the Bible tells me to do so. God would not tell me to speak the truth in love, if it were not possible to do so. God just wouldn’t do that.

I need to practice being kind and loving. I can take a hint from Jesus… “Go and sin no more… you brood of vipers!” How do I ever find that balance?

1 Timothy 5:20 Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning. (Speaking the truth in love.)

Luke 17:3a Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. For this reason, reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 2:15 These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. (Speaking the truth in love.)

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. (Speaking the truth in love.)

“Speaking the truth in love.” Let us look at that passage in context:

Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift. For it says:

When He ascended on high,
He took prisoners into captivity;
He gave gifts to people.

But what does “He ascended” mean except that He descended to the lower parts of the earth? 10 The One who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill[ all things.11 And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, 12 for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness. 14 Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit. 15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

We are to grow up. This is about growing up and maturing to the point that we are no longer blown about by “every wind of doctrine.” We are to grow into unity but that unity can only be found in Christ and the truth of Scripture. Seeking unity through compromise will never work. Speaking lies, because they are more “loving” than the truth, will never work.

The truth is, that the truth is ugly and offensive to those who reject it. There is a deep and inherent offense in the message of the Cross. Those who have been trained in lies, disguised as truth, revolt at the real truth, rejecting it off hand. I did! When God started showing me how things that I had learned in church, things taught to me as “Gospel Truth,” violated his Word, I rebelled. “Not my Pastor! Not my church! They would never teach me anything wrong!” I cried, I screamed at God, I told people that they were crazy! So why am I surprised that others have the same reaction? Sometimes you just have to get angry and fight through things.

However, the fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive. Error must be confronted but it is easier to accept the truth from those who smile and take your interest and needs to heart. I must learn to take on other people’s burdens. I must seek to understand where they are and where they come from. I must identify with them as brothers and sisters in the Lord. I must meet their needs. Only then, will I have the right to speak truth into their lives.

Please pray for me, that in however it may be possible, I will learn to speak the truth in love. I am not even certain what that means but I am aware that I need to learn.

David…

WAR AND TRUTH

Like fact and fiction, truth and war stand opposed, one to the other. People, on the home front, hear what their Generals and Kings want them to hear, nothing more, nothing less. At least, that is the way it used to be. With today’s internet and the massive social networks, do we not now hear the truth?

The answer to that question is undoubtedly yes! There is a caveat to that however, the truth is hidden among so many false and planted stories that only God could ever state unequivocally, which version, among hundreds, is the real truth. As we approach what seems like certain war, if you think you know the truth on every issue, keep dreaming. In war, and in the days leading up to war, the most truthful of leaders lie, and liars often tell  convenient truths.

I think that the gas attack in Syria was a false flag. Experts in chemical warfare assure me that, whatever the gas was, it was not sarin gas. sarin gas shuts down the nervous system. You stop moving, die and fall down; in that order. Anyone who touches a body of a sarin victim dies. Whatever it was, people died. Good and reliable sources tell me that it was a false flag attack. Then again, a leader in the Israeli Defense Force, told the world it was going to happen forty five minutes before it did. He named the airbase, the squadron and the lead pilot… Do I know? I don’t think so.

I do know that Putin, Kim Jong-un, and Xi Jinping are evil rulers. Then again, Hwang Kyo-ahn (Interim South Korean President) and Donald Trump, work for the same Devil. Lucifer’s goal is to kill as many people as possible and take them to Hell. I do not think the Devil cares who wins, as long as a lot of people die. The first of Satan’s Ten Commandments, inscribed on the Georgia Guidestones, tells us of the goal of reducing the world population to five hundred million people. To reach that goal, they must kill six and a half billion people. The Bible seems to indicate that the war that is upon us should kill one third of the people on earth; something more than two billion people. Never forget, Lucifer’s stated goal is to kill 6.5 billion human beings…

Donald Trump, whose first name, in Gaelic, means “World Ruler”, and whose last name would seem to carry prophetic weight, has, in about a hundred days, managed to leave Obama Care in place, continue to support Planned Parenthood (with only small, symbolic reductions) and take us to the brink of war with Russia and China at the same time… so much for the Babylonian Christianites who would call him Cyrus… “No, no, no… don’t worry, the pagan idols, that decorate his homes from floor to ceiling, are just ‘Artwork’, they don’t really mean anything…”

If I know one thing, it is this; time is running out. The generation that Jesus said would not pass away until all these things come to pass will turn seventy next year… I am not going to stretch that and make it say more than it does, but to me, it says that time is short.

Jesus said, “I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father but by me.” Either He is, or He isn’t. Either He is who He says that He is, or he is crazy, or He is a liar. Those are the only choices you have. I want to know the Truth. Jesus said that we should forsake all, take up our crosses and follow him. I have decided to follow Jesus. I will watch. I will think. I will pray. With all of that, I still may not know who gassed those people in Syria. Ultimately, it was Lucifer. I know that much. I want to know the details. I feel a need to know the details. That said, I may never know the details. Still, I will follow Jesus.

If God, who has every reason to do so, should pull back his hand and tear down the wall and hedge of protection around our nation, millions of Americans will soon be dead. Those who have left Babylon for the Kingdom of God, will find themselves with God, in Heaven. The rest will not fare so well. Those who call themselves Christian but who, in reality, look to Donald Trump as redeemer and the savior of their Babylonian lifestyle will find that his arm is short and that he cannot save.

Perhaps we shall escape once more. Perhaps Trump will cow the world. Perhaps we shall emerge from this crisis stronger, wealthier and more able to afford our sin than ever before… Perhaps. Still, the end is upon us. Will you die to yourself, take up your cross and follow Jesus, or will you stand firm in your hope that Donald Trump is going to rescue Babylon and increase your standard of living, giving you the money you need to continue in your sin?

These are desperate days…

Matthew 24:22 “Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.

I AM NOT A JEW

Sorry! My deepest apologies to Judaizers, Legalists and Hebrew Roots Devotees everywhere…

  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am a spiritual child of Abraham.
  • I am not under the Law.
  • I was never under the Law.
  • I do not live as a Jew.
  • I do not worship as a Jew.
  • I do not eat as a Jew.

Paul called down Peter, publicly, for trying to make gentiles live like Jews…

Galatians 2:14 …I told Cephas in front of everyone, “If you, who are a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel Gentiles to live like Jews?”

  • I appreciate the Jewish feasts.
  • I learn from the Jewish feasts.
  • There are Christian truths that cannot be understood apart from the Jewish festivals.
  • I appreciate Jews and Judaism.
  • I understand that Jesus was a Jew.
  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am a gentile.

Paul made a distinction between Jewish believers and Gentile believers. Paul, by his own testimony, lived like a Jew, when he was among Jews but as a gentile when he was with gentiles.

1 Corinthians 9: 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win Jews; to those under the law, like one under the law—though I myself am not under the law—to win those under the law. 21 To those who are without that law, like one without the law—not being without God’s law but within Christ’s law—to win those without the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some.

I am not a Catholic. I do not follow Catholic traditions.

  • On the other hand, the church in Acts met on the first day of the week. I follow that tradition.
  • Protestant, Evangelical Churches have celebrated the Birth of Christ on Christmas Day for more than 500 years. I respect that.
  • I understand that Jesus was crucified on Passover.
  • I know why Jesus was crucified at Passover. I respect that.
  • My church has celebrated the Resurrection on Easter Sunday from the beginning. I respect that.

I know all about Ishtar and rabbits that lay eggs. I will not worship Ishtar on Easter Sunday. I will worship Jesus Christ and remember his death, burial and resurrection.

Ishtar be damned… Who stole that day and gave it to her anyway?

  • You may dedicate Easter Sunday to Ishtar if you like. That is your choice.
  • You may spend the day hiding under the couch, trembling in fear of a rabbit that lays eggs. That is your choice.
  • By refusing to worship Christ on Easter, Christians cede the day to Ishtar, confessing that she alone has a right to that day.
  • As for me and my house, we will spend the day worshiping Jesus Christ and remembering how he died to set us free from Ishtarian Demons… That is my choice.

Romans 14: 4 Who are you to criticize another’s household slave? Before his own Lord he stands or falls. And he will stand. For the Lord is able to make him stand.

  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am not a Catholic.
  • I am a gentile.
  • I am a slave of Jesus Christ.

Sorry! My deepest apologies to Judaizers, Legalists and Hebrew Roots Devotees everywhere…

THE UNITED STATES IS DEAD

“Every indication is that Babylon will rule the world on the day of her demise. That being so, I would expect a strongman, like Trump, to cow his enemies and bring, at least for a short time, unmeasured prosperity to the homeland.”

Isaiah 47:5 Daughter Chaldea, sit in silence and go into darkness. For you will no longer be called mistress of kingdoms.

The United States is dead. We are doomed to die in a single hour. Scripture indicates that our destruction will be massive and permanent. Other nations will stand off in fear, afraid to even set foot on our shores… The radiation will be so intense that they will treat us as one big Chernobyl… Perhaps someone will start limited tours of the destruction for brave adventurers… The real question is not if, but when?

No other Nation on earth fits the description of the biblical, end times Babylon. If you do not understand that, there are several good books that lay out the case for America as Babylon or you could just pull out your Bible, open to the descriptions of the end times Babylon and check, with a highlighter or a pencil, every time one of the specific descriptions matches the United States and could not possibly apply to any other nation on earth… You can convince yourself in a few minutes. Babylon is destroyed in a single hour, and that without remedy.

Donald Trump has grabbed onto what could very well be a False Flag event and he is using it to reverse his campaign stance and continue to destabilize the Middle East. At the same time, he is, as Russia has made clear, just one step away from war. At the same time, he is messing with North Korea, aware that any attack on that country would be seen as an attack on China, bringing massive retribution. He is even threatening to place nuclear weapons in South Korea… a definite declaration of war against both North Korea and China.

If one looks at it from that point of view, our destruction could be sooner, rather than later. I, personally, do not think that this is going to work out badly at this time… I could be wrong. We have a military presence in three fourths of the nations of the world. Our military bases surround both Russia and China. Whatever they have told you, our military has no equal and the largest nations in the world have reason to fear and respect us. Remember how Ronald Reagan cowed the world? I believe that Donald Trump is beginning to have the same effect.

Some have identified Donald Trump as the Antichrist and I have seen much evidence that would point in that direction. Others have picked out Jared Kushner, with good reason. I remember when it was first Bush and then Obama who held that seat. I am not going to call names but I will say that both Trump and Kushner have come at a prophetic moment and that they are working strongly towards the Kingdom of the Beast, commonly called the New World Order.

If Trump is the strong man I believe him to be, he is going to continue to win battles at home and abroad. Every indication is that Babylon will rule the world on the day of her demise. That being so, I would expect a strongman, like Trump, to cow his enemies and bring, at least for a short time, unmeasured prosperity to the homeland. I would not be surprised to see forces within North Korea, emboldened by Trump, take out their leader and push for unification with the south. I would expect the war between the US and Russia to continue as a proxy war where no Americans and no Russians die, only Syrians. That is obviously the plan of the Luciferian Elite and I expect it will continue until Damascus is a heap of ruins and oil wells protrude where children used to play.

Babylon must fall before the Kingdom of the Beast can arise. It is Babylon, however, that must lay the groundwork for the New World Order. We are the only power on earth capable of doing that and we will stand until our work is complete. Scripture indicates that our death will be sudden and unexpected. The Luciferians teach that it is out of the ashes of the United States that the New World Order will rise, like a phoenix. We were the predecessor and the test case for the New World Order. I have written on that in other blog entries. The goal of Lucifer is to undo the damage done when God divided the world into tongues and tribes and nations at Babel. This is E Pluribus Unum, Out of Many, One. This is the Masonic Ordo Ab Chao, Order out of Chaos. This is “Give me your poor and huddled masses…” written on our National Goddess… These things were sold to the Church in America as Christian ideals, by some very slick and demonic salesmen… Undoing what God has done may sound noble, if phrased right by a slick salesman, but it is never a good idea. The goal of the New World Order, is to destroy the United States, reduce the world population by eighty percent and establish a United States type government that covers and controls the whole world.

The difference now is that while the vast majority of Americans were Christian in 1776 and the idea had to be couched in pseudo-Christian language, the majority of the world, today, is pagan and no attempt is being made to call it Christian… simply religious and good in the sense of Pope Francis and Rick Warren…

The leaders of the New World Order are openly Luciferian. There is the story of the phoenix. The phoenix (not the eagle, as you were told) is the bird on the Great Seal of the United States. Look at it… that is no eagle! The phoenix, the pagan priests would have us believe, is a special bird. When the phoenix is about to give birth, it crashes and burns in smoke and flames… It is out of the smoke and flames of the burning body of the dead mother that the new, larger and improved, bird rises… The phoenix cannot be born until its mother crashes and burns. Likewise, the New World Order cannot be born until the United States of America burns.

We are on a tight schedule. The clock started with the birth of Israel in 1948. Perhaps it did not start until 1967 when Jerusalem was conquered… Whenever, it has started and Jesus told us that that generation would not pass away before all these things were accomplished… Anyway you count that, we are fast running out of time. The New World Order will last, at most, seven years, although the Bible gives us hope that God may cut that short. The Kingdom of the Antichrist will begin on the day America burns.

So, what do I expect now? I would think that Donald Trump would see the greatest success that any President in history has ever seen. I would expect America to become more powerful and dominant than it has ever been. I would expect that he, or perhaps the President who follows him, will make a huge mistake and anger the world. I would expect nukes to rain out of the sky, from coast to coast. Close Ground explosions taking out every major city, while EMPs take out the national power grid, throwing survivors into darkness and silence. I expect it to be over in a single hour.

Revelation 18: 9 The kings of the earth who have committed sexual immorality and lived luxuriously with her will weep and mourn over her when they see the smoke of her burning. 10 They will stand far off in fear of her torment, saying:

Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the mighty city! For in a single hour your judgment has come.

Do you know Jesus? You may not be able to leave the United States. You may live or you may die, depending on where you are. If you die, you go to Heaven if you are saved, or Hell if you are lost. If you live, you must deal with a world without power or machinery and you must deal, to one degree or another, with radiation… Happy are those who die in the initial attack… If you live, preach Jesus!

It is time to get serious. If you know Jesus, Look up! Your salvation is nearer than ever before! If you would reject Jesus, look out, Hell rises up to meet you…

TO CHOOSE BLINDNESS

This Blog has been censured by the International Association of Evangelical Ostriches.

Jesus was wont to say, “Let those who have eyes to see, see” and “Let those who have ears to hear, hear.” I understand the blindness of the lost, “Unless you are Born Again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” Pardon me if I ignore the lost in this article. My subject concerns those Born Again, children of the Living God, who choose blindness over sight and deafness over hearing, at the most critical point in the history of the world.

“I don’t want to talk about that. I am going to preach the Gospel to the lost, nothing else matters.” Says a Pastor as he lowers his head, excuses himself and walks away. That statement might be valid, except that his sermon of the morning had been about tithing, with a strong call to support the building program. His congregation is dwindling, offerings are down, a third of the seats in the building are empty but this Pastor sees his salvation in a new sanctuary. Talk about current events, the imminent collapse of the nation and the rise of the New World Order are things he chooses not to look at, listen to, or think about. To preach on such things would be ecclesiastical suicide.

We used to joke about Evangelists and their numbers. If my pastor was going to stretch the truth for an illustration, he would begin by prefacing his statement with the phrase, “Evangelastically speaking…”, combining Evangelistic and Elastic, in a single word. This was so because success or failure in ministry was and is measured in numbers. The pastor with the biggest church, largest congregation, most revenue, is the winner. We judge God’s Church by Babylonian standards and wonder where we failed.

Jesus gathered a congregation that numbered more than five thousand, preached a single sermon and ended up with twelve, and one of those was a traitor. That is success! If you can find eleven people who will listen to the truth and follow you anyway, you are witnessing great things. Babylon would have you judging by the numbers. Jesus would have you make disciples.

The Gospel is central but the Gospel as presented in Scripture, not the bastardized, Americanized, Babylonian gospel. The Gospel in Scripture requires repentance, makes disciples and is judged by observing the quality of the crop. The Babylonian Gospel centers on how many people you can get to walk down an aisle, shake the preacher’s hand and repeat the “Sinner’s Prayer.”

If you are making disciples, you will share the whole truth with them and you will guide and direct them to the road that leaves Babylon. You will lead your little flock into the Kingdom of God and they will dwell there. You will teach them what Jesus said to watch for and help them to see. You will encourage them to seek wisdom and understanding. You will not hide the truth. You will preach the truth, even when you know that a Disciple or two may reject the truth and leave the fold as a result.

Church Growth Seminars lead to Spiritual Death. Eleven disciples and a traitor is better than a church of five thousand Hell-bound sinners.

Babylonian pastors, in Babylonian churches, will never talk about prophecy, current events, or the sins of America. They will carefully measure their sermons by the offering plate and the number of seats filled on Sunday morning. Truth that lowers revenue will be avoided at all costs. They will not listen to the truth and they most certainly will not preach it. The Fourth of July will be celebrated as a church holiday. Christmas trees and Easter Baskets will decorate the sanctuary in their season but no teaching will ever be given that would help the people understand current events and the immediate future in light of Biblical Prophecy… These Pastors will blindly lead a blinded congregation into Tribulation and the Great Deception without a clue… They have chosen to be blind and they have chosen to blind their congregations.

Preach the truth. Preach the whole truth. Pray that God will give you a dozen disciples. It is enough.

Revelation 18:4 Then I heard another voice from heaven: Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins or receive any of her plagues.
