“Awake to righteousness, and sin not, for some have not the knowledge of God” 1 Corinthians 15:34
As perilous times are upon us and we can clearly see that the return of the Lord is near, it is imperative that we stay conscious of the fact that God has called us to holiness, not compromise and certainly not willful sin, because we are living in a very evil time. When elementary school teachers can strip, literally take off all of their clothes, and show small 11-year-old children every part of their bodies, in the name of “sex education,” and after much outcry by parents, the teachers were suspended, but the National Teachers Association fought to reinstate those teachers, understand, we are living in the last of the last days! The California legislature just passed an abominable bill during the first week in September legalizing infanticide, and now the bill is ready to be signed at any time by Gavin Newsom, Governor of California, a Democratic-Communist State if there ever was one, legalizing the murder of babies up to 28 days after they are born! There is no time to be lax and caught unaware; we are living in the days of child sacrifice and Sodom and Gomorrah, folks! Jesus said, “Likewise, as it was in the days of Lot, they ate, drank, bought, sold, planted and built; but the same day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all (all the inhabitants of Sodom). Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28-30 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Jesus said, “…as it was in the days of Lot…Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed (when He comes)!” That means He could come at any time, because we are living in the days of Lot – Sodom and Gomorrah! The Lord is about ready to annihilate the wicked for their gross sins, so what kind of persons should we be in this hour? First, let’s remember what He said will happen during His return for His bride. There were 10 virgins, meaning they were all His church, but five of them were left behind, even so (Matthew 25). They were all sleeping, so He tarried to the point that the virgins, all of them, fell asleep. Christians have been saying Christ could come at any time since Israel became a nation, but He still hasn’t arrived, and the church, in general, is definitely asleep. When people, who call themselves Christians, ordain homosexuals to pastor churches, and most wont preach a sermon on the topic of hell, the church is not only asleep, but most of it has slipped into a deadly coma! The Word tells us, “For this cause (refusing to obey God’s Word and defying it), God gave them up to vile affections, for even their women did change the natural use (of men) into that which is against nature; and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working that which is indecent, receiving the recompense of their deception, which is mandatory (like AIDS and monkeypox!). And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting” Romans 1:26-28 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). When God gives someone over to a reprobate mind, there is no hope of salvation, not ever; yet churches all over the world are ordaining gays to be pastors! The Word tells us that the heathen sacrificed their children to the Ammonite idol Molech, placing their children in the outstretched arms of Molech, while a raging fire in the belly of it burned them up alive (Leviticus 18:21)! In time, Israel compromised and started doing the same thing! King Solomon, even after God appeared to him and blessed him above all the kings of the earth, had the audacity to build a high place for the idol god Molech for the sacrifice of children in Israel, right in the hill before Jerusalem, of all places! Why? Because his many wives influenced him to sin and build high places for their pagan gods. Afterwards, this abomination became commonplace for Israel (Jeremiah 32:35)! People fall asleep spiritually and become complacent, influenced by demonic spirits that are all around them, when a nation’s political leaders turn their backs on God. This is why the Lord will not delay His return much longer, or none of us would be saved, not even the elect of God! “And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened” Matthew 24:22. Jesus also said, “Enter in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and many go in that gate; because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” Matthew 7:13-14 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Jesus said that “few” will find the way that leads to life. Few means very limited in number! Are you going to be one of those few? There were 10 virgins, but Jesus only came for five of them, because they had the “oil,” the Holy Spirit, and were found “without spot” and “holy.” “That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish” Ephesians 5:27. God bless and keep you.
“Who is God?”
We should all have a personal relationship with God and know who He is for ourselves. The Word of God tells us, “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength; this is the first commandment” Mark 12:30. If we love God like this, we will certainly know who He is and we will learn a lot about Him. For those who perhaps haven’t experienced God in a way that explains some of His characteristics and attributes, let’s ponder on some of these things for the great benefit. There is a new “fastest” computer in the world (published May 31, 2022), the Frontier, and it is so fast that exaflops doesn’t describe it, so they had to come up with a new word to describe how fast it is, “exascale.” It can do 1018 (10 with 18 zeros behind it – 10,000,000,000,000,000,000) operations per second! Compared to the power of God, this machine is antiquated, defunct! In fact, nothing they can ever build can even compare to Him. God spans space, which never ends, all at once! He can outrun this computer, without even doing a flop! He is Omnipresent, everywhere at the same time. Can you wrap your mind around that? Of course we can’t, but it’s true just the same. God knows what every person on the planet is thinking (they don’t even have to speak out loud), and there are over 7.9 BILLION PEOPLE! He is Omniscient, all knowing; there is nothing being said, done, or otherwise, that He doesn’t know about. It is estimated that the earth weighs 13 thousand, 170 billion, trillion pounds, or 13,170,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. That would be quite a crunch if it fell on your big toe, right? That also equals power; but the truth be known, it is as light as a feather next to the power of God. He is Omnipotent, nothing is more powerful than God! All of these powerful things exist and the people of the world are in awe of the creation of such computers, the weight and power of the earth, and many other wonders of the world, some things we can never explain. For example, how does a tiny termite eat hard wood? As big as you are, try taking a bite out of a piece of lumber! God is the answer to everything that amazes us and all of the things we can’t explain. Although most people in the world do not believe in the Almighty God I just described, they are going to face Him in judgment someday. The Word of God tells us, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” Hebrews 9:27. God already knows most people have refused Him. Jesus said, “Enter in at the straight gate, for wide is gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and many go in thereat; because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leads to life and there are few that find it” Matthew 7:13-14. Are you among the “few” who have a very personal relationship with the King of the Universe? Do you know Him intimately? Is He your very best friend? Do you spend as much time with Him as you can? If you work and have children, that may not be a lot of time, but God only expects of you what you are able to do. Certainly, we should all be able to give him an allotted time first thing in the morning and before we lie down at night. Your eternal soul depends on your relationship with Him. “If we say that we have fellowship with Him, but walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth” 1 John 1:6. “He who says, I know Him, but keeps not His commandments, is a liar and the truth is not in Him” 1 John 2:4. Statistics show that most “Christians” today are Calvinists; they believe once they are saved, they are always saved, even if they live in willful sin, because they pull a few favorite scriptures out of the Bible, proclaiming their salvation, even if they commit adultery, lie, cheat, steal, deal dishonestly in business, and many are in a category who believe it is okay to kill your unborn children! So, most “Christians” believe there is nothing they can do that can separate them from God (because of certain scriptures they have taken out of the context in which they were written). They will all have a very rude awakening on Judgment Day. The God I serve said, “Not every one that says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the WILL of My Father in heaven” Matthew 7:21. His Word also says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (men acting like women), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals)” 1 Corinthians 6:9 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The Word of God also tells us, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” Proverbs 9:10. I have discovered this about the Almighty: He is the epitome of Love; no one can ever love you more; but He is also the epitome of hate against evil: “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened…and whoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:12, 15 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The wisest thing one can do is love, fear and obey God.
“For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10- Part 2
How can we convince others that the Bible is true and not a book of fables, as many proclaim today? There have been innumerable confirmations over millennia that the Word of God is true and infallible. Men of God have seen angels who declared prophetic events, which have come to pass, such as those things the Archangel Gabriel told Daniel concerning the exact number of years until the Messiah would come (Daniel 9:24-25), which happened precisely, and that He, Messiah, would be “cut off” (His crucifixion – Daniel 9:26), which also occurred during the exact timeframe given to Daniel. Hundreds of prophecies articulated throughout the Old Testament have already come to pass, such as the suffering of the Son of God for our redemption: “But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes (scourging) we are healed” Isaiah 53:5. David, who was a king and prophet, also foretold the method of His suffering: “For dogs have compassed Me; the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me; they pierced My hands and My feet” Psalms 22:16. The prophet Zechariah foretold how the Jews will react when they finally realize who Jesus is, “…and they shall look upon Me, whom they have pierced, and mourn for Him…” Zechariah 12:10. Gabriel also told Daniel that the antichrist would come to power during the seven-year tribulation (Daniel 9:26-27), but that he would also be destroyed (Daniel 11:42-45). He told Daniel there will be great tribulation, such as never occurred before (Daniel 12:1). John the Revelator foretold that the antichrist will have power on earth during half of the tribulation period, the last 42 months (Revelation 13:5), that the false prophet will mandate the “mark of the beast,” which everyone will have to receive in order to buy or sell anything during the great tribulation (Revelation 13:16-18), and that Jesus will return with His armies (Revelation 19:11-16), which prophecies haven’t been fulfilled yet, but certainly will come to pass, in accordance with hundreds of other prophecies that have already been fulfilled. These prophecies were spoken by a relatively small group of prophets who believed in the One and only true God, Creator of all things. The fulfillment of all of these prophecies is a mathematical impossibility, but all things are possible with God! The odds of so many prophecies being fulfilled is so astronomically improbable, that the WORD of GOD has to be true; there can be no doubt. Even into modern times, ancient Bible prophecies are still being fulfilled, such as Israel becoming a nation in one day, (on May 14, 1948): “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day, or shall a nation be born at once, for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children” Isaiah 66:8. Zion refers to Jerusalem and/or Israel, the homeland of God’s people. In this passage of scripture, Zion had just “travailed;” the travail occurred during the Holocaust and then Jews began returning to Israel en masse from all over the world. The Diaspora Jews returning to Israel from all around the world was also prophesied: “Fear not, for I Am with you; I will bring your seed (children) from the east, and gather you from the west; I will say to the north, ‘Give up;’ and to the south, ‘Keep not back, bring My sons from far and My daughters from the ends of the earth…I Am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King’” Isaiah 43:5-6, 15. There are so many more prophecies that I could continue writing for days and not be able to finish writing them anytime soon. John F Walvoord wrote Every Prophecy of the Bible and that book contains 626 pages, not including the Indexes. Scientists, whom the “world” proclaims are some of the most intelligent people on earth, have said that life, including people, beasts and plant life, literally came “from nothing,” otherwise they would have to admit there is a God. Many of them can’t bring themselves to that conclusion, because for one reason, they would be ostracized professionally. Major universities, administered by godless men, would ruin their careers and “black list” them, which has happened to Christian professors. Stephen Hawking, an English physicist, cosmologist, and at the time of his death was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge, also previously the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge, was lauded to be one of the most intelligent men of our time. In the last book he authored, he wrote, “Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something, rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist.” Is that not stupid? Our flesh and bones walk because God, the Creator of all things, gave us an eternal spirit and life! The Holy Word of God says, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” Romans 1:22. Do you want to be wise? Don’t look to the world’s universities, which have been turned upside down by satan with nonsense, such as evolution and critical race theory. Read the Word of God, watch, pray and wait for the return of the Lord and be forever wise and blessed!
“For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10– Part 2
Last month, I wrote about the prophecies Jesus gave to His disciples, articulated in Matthew 24 and Luke 21, concerning the time of His return and what signs we should look for in these last days. Everything Jesus spoke about has come to pass, or is currently being fulfilled that had to happen preceding His return, so He could come at any time. The passage of scripture referred to above in Revelation 19:10 not only refers to the “testimony of Jesus,” as in the prophecies He spoke to His disciples and others during His ministry, but it has a two-fold meaning (Law of Hermeneutics for double meaning). This scripture also means that if we testify of Jesus, we are being moved by “the Spirit of prophecy.” Jesus spoke prophetically about His Kingdom, those who would be eligible to enter into His Kingdom and how they are supposed to live in order to get there. His Kingdom exists now within us, each one of His anointed: “Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, ‘The Kingdom of God does not come with observation, nor will they say, See here, or see there! For indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you’” Luke 17:20-21; and it is also a future Kingdom: “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s Kingdom” Matthew 26:29. So, the Kingdom of God is already powerfully working in us who are His called/chosen to speak of Jesus; and the heavenly Kingdom of God will come in the future. In other words, it is spiritually within us, and it is a heavenly place. Remember Jesus said: “And I will give you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatsoever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatsoever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:19. Jesus told us to pray in this manner: “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven” Matthew 6:10. The Lord’s Kingdom is operating on earth within us, as we do His will on this earth, when we use the Keys of the Kingdom to bind, to loose, cast out devils, heal the sick and raise the dead! We will also enter God’s heavenly Kingdom when we leave this world, at the time of our passing from this life to heaven, or when we are caught up to be with the Lord during the rapture of the saints (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), whichever comes first. The Word tells us, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” 1 Peter 2:9. What does the priesthood do? The priests minister the Word to those who are God’s people, and also, more importantly, to lost souls: “When Jesus heard that (ridicule by the Pharisees because He ate with sinners), He said to them, ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician (physicians were holistic practitioners in those days; they did not use deadly “sorceries” [Revelation 9:21], which means “pharmakeia” [original Greek], which means man made drugs, as we see today), but those who are sick…for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance” Matthew 9:12-13. (I touched a bit on “sorceries – pharmakeia” here, but that is very deep and a message for another time.) Jesus has called each one of us to “proclaim the praises of Him,” to be witnesses to anyone who will listen, especially to our own families who aren’t saved. We should live every day as though today is the last time we have an opportunity to remind our loved ones, friends and those we meet, that Jesus is coming and all the signs are here, because tomorrow we may not be here and it could be too late! Whether it be by rapture of the saints, or the Lord taking us out of this world before that time, from this wicked generation (Isaiah 57:1), we have no guarantee that we will be here to remind our loved ones one last time that our lives here are “just a vapor” (James 4:14) and it is imperative to get right with God now, before it is too late: “Therefore, you don’t know what shall be tomorrow; for what is your life? It is even a vapor, which appears for a little time, and then vanishes away” James 4:14. Does it seem impossible that you could appear in heaven by tomorrow? Hundreds of thousands of people die suddenly every year in the US; it happens all the time. Would you be able to say you did everything you could do to convince your loved ones to get right with God? What are their souls worth to you? Eternal heaven, or eternal hell is the outcome; there is no purgatory, no middle ground. If we, as Christians, aren’t witnessing at every opportunity, we have failed Christ and we have failed to fulfill His commandment: “And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then shall the end come” Matthew 24:14; “But you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you and you shall be witnesses unto Me, both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth” Acts 1:8. By the power of the Holy Ghost, we are all His witnesses.
“For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10– Part 2
I left off last month expounding on what Jesus prophesied concerning the last days in Luke 21: “And there shall be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring” Luke 21:25. The sea and the waves have been roaring of late, especially when the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted with nuclear power, which I wrote about last month. There are very unusual signs in the sun, which many people may not be aware of today, unless they keep tabs on such solar events at NASA, or The Watchers news. Extraordinary sun flares have occurred just this month, with warnings issued, that could potentially lead to a loss of power and even the power grid, which could shut off electricity nationwide. Our power grid is so fragile that if a powerful sunflare shuts it down, it could take weeks, or even months to restore power in the US. Our water line pumps are powered by electricity, which means the water could be shut off and no water may be available to sustain life, unless you are storing water, as I do, or you are very close to a major water aqueduct. Beware though, aqueducts would draw the attention of millions of people during such a crisis and people would be fighting, or killing one another for water, if you are fortunate enough to get close to the aqueduct, or other water source. This is why, once a water, juice, or other container is empty, I rinse it out and fill it with fresh water and store it. It is wise to have enough water stored for each member of your household for at least two weeks. Water becomes stale after about six months, so I also keep a Life Straw on hand (https://lifestraw.com). I also have a Clearly Filtered pitcher for in-house use, which removes over 300 contaminants and fluoride (https://clearlyfiltered.com). You can’t live for more than about three to four days without water; you can live a month without food. People all over the world are prepping for the worst-case scenario by storing food, but not many are thinking about storing/filtering water. If you can’t afford some of these more expensive filtration systems, you can place 10 drops of chlorine bleach in every gallon of water to help purify it, or place a glass container of water in the sun all day, which will also help purify it. You may have noticed that the moon appears to be moving in all sorts of directions, even lying flat , but that’s not because the moon is tilting in any direction; the earth is moving erratically, which is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy: “The earth mourns and languishes; the world is sick and suffers; the haughty people of the earth are sick. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statute and break the everlasting covenant…Dread, the pit and a snare are upon you, inhabitant of the earth, and it shall come to pass that he who flees from the sound of dread, shall fall into the pit, and he who comes up out of the pit, shall be taken in the snare; for the windows from on high are opened and the earth’s foundations are breaking. The earth is breaking itself, breaking itself; the earth is breaking up, breaking up; the earth is off its course, and is wavering like a cottage (we see this is happening now by the moon’s odd and changing positions) and transgression is heavy upon it; it shall fall and not rise again” Isaiah 24:4-5, 17-20 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Since 2018, during my First and Fourth Watch holy convocations, I see the stars move in various directions, which is not normal; they have even come down and stood what appears only feet away from my window. They form heavenly constellations that are formed by God for signs, which provide messages to me, such as what I call the Star of David and the Fisher of Men constellations and many more. I see many signs and wonders in the stars, which may not appear to others who are not watching for Jesus’s return; I even see the “Bright and Morning Star” (Revelation 22:16). I am saying that the signs of the last days, noted in Luke 21:25, are here! He said there would be distress of nations, with perplexity. All nations have been distressed over the coronavirus and variants and the Ukraine War and these too are a fulfillment of Jesus’s prophecies. He said there would be “wars and rumors of wars” in Matthew 24:6; and “pestilences” in Matthew 24:7, and these prophesies are all coming to pass with the Ukraine War, China’s threats, COVID-19 and the many variants that followed. Now is the time to warn loved ones and friends, as much as lies within us, about the fulfillment of Bible prophecies and that souls need to be prepared to face God, because we have no guarantee that we will live another day on the face of this earth. We can’t spread the Gospel of the Good News without including prophecy, because “Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10. Every minister of the Gospel of Truth, if he is providing timely nourishment to the flock of God, will include last days Bible prophecies in their messages today, and for the sake of lost souls; tomorrow could be too late!
“For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10
The Bible tells us that the “’testimony of Jesus’ is the Spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10. All the signs Jesus foretold in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 pertaining to His return have been, or are currently being fulfilled, meaning He could return at any time. Jesus said regarding the time of His return, “Take heed that no one deceives you, for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many” Matthew 24:4-5. Since the start of the 19th Century, 38 people have claimed to be Jesus, leading millions of people astray worldwide. The Unification Church alone, started by Sun Myung Moon, has as many as 2 million members. Moon claimed to be the “Messiah” and “second coming of Jesus Christ.” People don’t know the Word of God and that is the reason they become victims of such deception. If they knew God’s Word, everyone would know that no one can fake the return of Jesus, because the Bible provides a very detailed description His return: “Now I saw heaven opened and, behold, a white horse and He who sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness He judges and makes war (against the wicked). His eyes were like a flame of fire and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew, except Himself. He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean” Revelation 19:11-14. Moon’s followers should have known he was a fake by the fact that he didn’t arrive on a white horse, riding through the sky with His army! Jesus then warned of wars and rumors of wars, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars…” Matthew 24:6. As I am writing this April Prophetic Newsletter, I checked the status of the Russia/Ukraine war to add something about it here and, to my amazement, headlines within the last two hours are reporting: “World War III has started,” which was first published by Russian State TV. Jesus went on to say, “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines (famines are happening throughout the world), pestilences (like COVID and variants), earthquakes in various places (major and great earthquakes are also happening throughout the world). All these things are the beginning of sorrows” Matthew 24:7-8. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations reported that (as of 2020) an estimated 720 to 811 MILLION people are starving! An estimated 418 million are starving in Asia, 282 million are starving in Africa and about 60 million in Latin American and the Caribbean. Major news outlets aren’t reporting much of what I am describing here, because they are aware of Bible prophecies and they deliberately censor such news, whenever possible. They are among the Bilderberg Group conspirators, who veil the truth from the masses. Jesus then said, “They shall deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you and you shall be hated by all nations for My name’s sake; and then many shall be offended and betray one another and hate one another” Matthew 24:9-10. A global conspiracy, which includes the Bilderberg Group, heads of nations and their cohorts, aim at crushing Christianity. All of the evidence, which is too extensive to describe in one Newsletter, leads to this conclusion. The Word tells us this will end with Christian martyrdom on a much wider scale than we see now in Middle Eastern Muslim nations, throughout Africa and Asia, where Christians are killed for their faith continuously. Aleteia (Aleteia. org) reported that just during the first six months of 2021, 3,462 Christians were killed in Nigeria, 577 PER MONTH, an average of 19 PER DAY just in Nigeria! Historically Muslims have killed an estimated 270 MILLION Christians from 600 AD to 1922, when the Ottoman Caliphate ended. Jesus also said, “And there shall be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring” Luke 21:25. The most widespread tsunami in recorded history just happened in Tonga on 1/15/22, due to the largest volcanic explosion in the 21st Century at the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano. The eruption caused tsunamis in Tonga, Fiji, American Samoa, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Japan, the Russian Far East, the United States, Chile and Peru. The explosion was “hundreds of times more powerful” than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima! An unknown number of people are missing, but Wikipedia focused on “four people” that were reported dead and they downplayed the event. I didn’t see any mainstream news media reporting it. The Word tells us, “For when they say, ‘Peace and safety,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape” 1 Thessalonians 5:3. Please don’t rely on the news; read the Word, watch and pray; for Jesus said, “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord shall find watching when He comes. Truly I say to you that He will gird Himself and cause them to recline and will come to serve them” Luke 12:37 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation).
“Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 16:19 – Part 3
We are continuing this study about the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, because when Jesus said there are “Keys of the Kingdom,” we have to know that these Keys are a critical part of our entry into the Kingdom of Heaven, in addition to the many blessings they will unlock for us while we are traveling through this life (we are “strangers and pilgrims” on earth Hebrews 11:13). I wrote about the KINGDOM KEY OF FAITH last month, which had to come before the KINGDOM KEY OF PRAYER this month, because without faith we will have a difficult time getting our prayers answered (James 1:6-7). Prayer is vital in our walk with God. The Lord was very pleased with King David’s prayers and He gave favor to David, saying he was a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22), so we can surely benefit from understanding how he approached the Lord in prayer. David said, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him and bless His name” Psalms 100:4. We should always go to God starting with “Thanksgiving” and “praise.” Do you ever pray, “cutting right to the chase,” with your requests and grievances? The Word tells us exactly how to get God’s full attention before we begin: “But You are holy, oh He who inhabits the praises of Israel” Psalm 22:3. By the way, all who are saved are “Israel,” Jews by adoption, (Romans 11). God “inhabits the praises” of His people, which means if we are praising the Lord, He dwells right there; He is giving us His full attention. Go before the Lord with thanksgiving and praises, as David instructed us to do, and you will be in the presence of the Lord. Pray to the Lord in faith, not wavering, and He will answer all of your prayers. Another “attention getter” is to go before the Lord with fasting and prayer. We know this by Daniel’s testimony. He was fasting, praying and confessing the sins of his people, when the Archangel Gabriel showed up (Daniel 9). Gabriel referred to Daniel as one who is “greatly beloved” (Daniel 9:23). Because of Daniel’s fasting, prayers and confessions before God, with humility, he received the greatest prophecy in the canonized scriptures (Daniel’s 70 Weeks – I have a study of this prophecy online at: https://nowprophecyblog.wordpress.com/2018/09/08/the-greatest-prophecy-ever-given/). The first thing we should do when we rise up in the morning, and the last thing we should do before we go to sleep in the evening, is give God thanks and praises and then pray. It would also be of great benefit to give thanks and praises to the Lord before praying at midday. Daniel prayed three times a day and he was highly favored of God. We can certainly follow his example, even as Paul said, “Be followers of me, even as I am also of Christ” 1 Corinthians 11:1. If we are truly faithful, we should also be able to say, “Follow me, as I follow Christ; I can show you the way.” If we aren’t faithful in reading God’s Word, praying, and even fasting in this hour, we can’t be effective witnesses and we are also vulnerable to temptation, just as the Apostles were when Jesus was arrested; they all fled! (Mark 14:50) Why did they run? Perhaps because they wouldn’t even pray with Him for one hour! “He went a little further and fell on His face and prayed, saying, ‘Oh My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.’ Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping and said to Peter, ‘What! Could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak’” Matthew 26:39-40. If you believe yourself to be “strong in the Lord,” remember that the disciples saw the many miracles Jesus did, right in front of their eyes, and they all denied Him, as He was being arrested: “Then they all forsook Him and fled” Mark 14:50. Peter said he wouldn’t deny the Lord, even if he had to die with Him, but, “Jesus said to him, ‘Assuredly, I say to you this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times’” Matthew 26:34. That very night Peter denied Him, as Jesus foretold. Perhaps if Peter prayed with Jesus, as He asked him to in the Garden of Gethsemane, he would have had the strength he needed to stand with the Lord. We will all do well to remember some other things Jesus said about the last days, “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and (they) shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:24 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Have you ever seen a miracle right before your eyes? Very few have. Demon-possessed false Christs and false prophets will arise and perform miracles by the power of satan. If the saints aren’t prayerful and close to God, they will see these wonders and believe the deceivers are actually Christ Himself, or a prophet sent by God. Pray, fast and read the Word regularly, saints, because Jesus warned us to be prepared in the last days. God bless you.
“Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 16:19 – Part 2
I started a series of studies last month about the “Kingdom Keys” that Jesus referred to in Matthew 16:19, “…and I will give to you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:19 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The first Kingdom Key we studied last month was KNOWLEDGE of GOD’s WORD and it was obvious to see how important that Key is, in that JESUS is the WORD (John 1:1). The next Key is FAITH. Prayer is critical; it is our communication with God, but without faith behind our prayers, we have little or nothing to gain. The Word tells us, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is (God) and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him.” The Word also tells us, “But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost…” Jude 1:20. The Word tells us we are able to build up ourselves on our “most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” If you are frustrated because you are having a difficult time believing God will answer your prayers, that might be the result of not being “filled with the Holy Ghost,” and praying in other tongues (Acts 2:4). There are numerous New Testament scriptures that explain what being “filled with the Holy Ghost” is about: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” Acts 2:4. In other words, they were filled with the Holy Ghost and then the Holy Spirit spoke through them in a different language. At times Christians speak in another known language for the purpose of witnessing, as many did on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:6-8). At other times, Christians who are filled with the Holy Ghost speak in an unknown language: “For he who speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not to men, but to God, for no man understands him; albeit, in the Spirit he speaks mysteries” 1 Corinthians 14:2. “Likewise, the Spirit also helps our infirmities, for we do not know what we should pray for, as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” Romans 8:26. If you haven’t received the “gift of the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:38), with the evidence of speaking in (other) tongues, and you desire to please God and build up your “most holy faith,” then pray for the gift of the Holy Ghost; because when you pray in tongues, you are speaking to God in ways you don’t actually know how to appeal to Him, but the Holy Ghost in you does know how to reach God. Have you ever had a difficult time expressing yourself? The pastors at our church help me with Spanish sometimes, and I appreciate it, because I speak Spanish like a baby, but I want to speak properly. When we are filled with the Holy Ghost, He helps us speak “mysteries” that are pleasing to God, which we otherwise have no knowledge of. “The Spirit Himself makes intercession for us…” (Romans 8:26). “Praying in the Holy Ghost” (Jude 1:20) builds up our “most holy faith,” so if you haven’t been filled, start praying for the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Word also tells us, “But let him ask in faith, not wavering, for he who wavers is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he will receive anything of the Lord” James 1:6-7. If you aren’t seeing your prayers answered, are you building up your “most holy faith,” praying in the Holy Ghost? Are you having any doubts? Doubt will steal the answers to your prayers. The passage above says, “Let not that man think that he will receive anything of the Lord.” Have you ever heard the old song, “Prayer is the Key to Heaven, Faith Unlocks the Door?” Prayer is a critical Kingdom Key, but it is imperative to build up your “most holy faith” as you pray, in order to get your prayers answered. The Word tells us that “Faith comes by hearing the Word of God” Romans 10:17 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Hearing the Word of God will also help build up your “most holy faith.” When I hear this passage of scripture, I get revived: “Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN (YET)” Hebrews 11:1. Faith is so powerful that the Word of God tells us it is the EVIDENCE of things we can’t even see yet! It is like saying, “By His stripes I am healed,” while you feel as though you are dying. I have been there and done that very thing, so I know the power of faith. If you say, “By His stripes I am healed,” but you are worrying at the same time how your family will manage without you if you don’t get healed, you may have just aborted your healing. The Lord is under no obligation to heal us if we don’t have the faith to be healed; but He can and many times He will heal by His mercy. God, however, is fully obligated to heal us when we say, “By His stripes I am healed” and we say that without wavering. If He didn’t heal us, He would be a liar, but God never lies! Receive the KINGDOM KEY of FAITH by reading and hearing the Word; and if you aren’t filled with the Holy Ghost, start praying for this gift, and have other saints pray, then watch for miracles that will happen!
“Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 16:19 – Part 1
I have referred to the “Kingdom Keys” recently in newsletters and I felt led of the Spirit to share more information about these Keys. Jesus spoke to Peter about the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven in Matthew, chapter 16. In that chapter, we are told that the Pharisees and Sadducees (Jewish religious sects) came to Jesus to tempt Him and they asked Him to give them a sign of who He was; they were jealous of His popularity among the people and they sought to accuse and shame Him. Jesus responded by saying to them, “…Oh, you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky (to determine the weather), but can you not discern the signs of the times?” Matthew 16:3. He was referring to the fact that they didn’t know they were living at the time of their Messiah’s arrival. They were always looking for their Messiah, Who was prophesied of in HaMikra (Hebrew for “the Scripture”), but they were so focused on their envy and desire to get rid of Him, they missed the arrival of their awaited Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. After this interaction, Jesus left with His disciples and a while later He asked them, “…Whom do men say that I, the Son of Man, Am?” Matthew 16:13. They told Him some believed He was John the Baptist, some said He was Elijah and others believed He was Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. “He said to them, But whom do you say that I Am? And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, for flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but My Father Who is in heaven; and I say also to you, that you are Peter (meaning rock), and upon this rock I will build My church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it, and I will give to you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:15-19 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Jesus’s disciples left their families, their jobs and all they had to follow Him wherever He went. These 12 disciples were the early church, and more were added later. Jesus called them, they followed Him and they were His church. At this point during their conversation, no one on earth knew who Jesus really was; He was just another nice stranger for all anyone could determine; but here Peter answer the great question of just who Jesus was,”the Christ, the Son of the living God.” First, Jesus told Peter that he was “blessed” for knowing who He was; second, He told Peter that the “Father” revealed it to him; third, Jesus told him that upon him, Peter, He would “build” His church; and fourth, Jesus said, “I will give to you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” If we believe in who Jesus is, we are also “blessed” and we have a revelation of who Jesus really is from the “Father,” because no man comes to Him, unless the “Father draws him” (John 6:44). If we know Jesus and keep His commandments, we are His “church,” therefore, Jesus has also given to us, or rather He avails to us for the taking, the “Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Why aren’t we all binding and loosing and seeing all of our prayers answered then? The Word tells us, “…faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” Romans 10:17. If God’s people, the church, do not realize there are Kingdom Keys that Jesus spoke about, they don’t really have them. The Keys are available to them, if they meet the conditions, but it doesn’t mean they carry those Keys with them, so, KNOWLEDGE of GOD’s WORD is a KEY. God’s people have a myriad of hindrances without knowing the Word. The prophet Hosea wrote these Words from the Lord: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children” Hosea 4:6. Those are very harsh words, but that’s just how important knowing God’s Word is. Have you read any books, perhaps many books? How many times have you read God’s Holy Word through? It is literally our roadmap to heaven, but most people haven’t even read it through once. I have written it, Word for Word, from Genesis to Revelation, because I love it so much. It took me seven years to write it once and I keep writing it to this day. Am I bragging? No, I want to encourage everyone to embrace it as much as they can, because Jesus loves it when we do that, because He is the Word (John 1:1). He has given me revelations and experiences that He is also willing to give to anyone else, because He does not respect one person above another (Acts 10:34); but He does require that we seek after Him with all of our hearts (Jeremiah 29:13). KNOWLEDGE of GOD’s WORD is one KEY, and there are other KEYS we should look into soon, in order to “be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32) during these last days. Happy New Year!
Prophesies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ – 2021 Christmas Issue
The Word tells us, “the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10). Exercise the Spirit of prophecy in you, if you are a “born again” Christian (John 3:3), and memorize these prophecies and tell everyone you can about Jesus our blessed Savior, as He commissioned us to do (Mark 16:15). If you do that with an earnest heart, God will do much greater things in you by His Spirit, and Jesus will also say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things…” (Matthew 25:21).
The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will conceive and bear a Son and will call His name Immanuel (meaning God with us – among numerous other names identified by the prophet Isaiah).
Isaiah 7:14 (~740 BC [Before Christ]. His appearance is engraved in our timeline!)
He would be born of a virgin
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. The angel came to her and said, “Hail, you who are highly favored; the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women.” The angel said to her, “Fear not, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive and bring forth a Son and you will call His name Jesus” (Yeshua in Hebrew, which means Salvation). Luke 1:26-31
You, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall He come forth to Me, He that is to be ruler in Israel, whose going forth has been from old, from everlasting.
Micah 5:2 (~700 BC)
He would be born in Bethlehem
Joseph went up from Galilee, out of the City of Nazareth, into Judea to the City of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, who was great with child. So it was while they were there, the days were completed that she should deliver, and she brought forth her firstborn son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7
I will declare the decree: The Lord said to me, “You are My Son; this day I have begotten You.” Psalm 2:7 (~900 BC)
He would be declared the Son of God
Lo, a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17
Rejoice greatly, oh daughter of Zion; shout, oh daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes to you; He is just and has salvation, lowly, and riding upon a colt, the foal of an ass.
Zechariah 9:9 (~520 BC)
His triumphal entry into Jerusalem
They brought the colt to Jesus and cast their garments on him and He sat on him. And they that went before Him and followed Him cried, saying, “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” And Jesus entered Jerusalem and into the temple…Mark 11:7,9,11
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and we hid our faces from Him; He was despised and we did not esteem Him.
Isaiah 53:3 (~740 BC)
He would be rejected by the people
They cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him.” Pilate said to them, “Should I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” John 19:15
I will give Him a portion with the great and He will divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul to death and He was numbered with transgressors; He bore the sins of many, making intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:12 (~740 BC)
Crucified among criminals
He was crucified with two thieves, one on His right, and the other on His left. Mark 15:27
Never a man spoke like this man, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. No one fulfilled the prophesies of the Messiah to come like Jesus. This being the dispensation of the Messiah (His return), who else could possibly fulfill all the same prophesies? He died to pay the penalty for our sins, so we could have eternal life. If you haven’t received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, won’t you take care of your eternal soul and destiny today? You need only say a simple prayer of repentance, “for all have sinned” (Romans 3:23), receive Jesus as your Savior and follow His commandments, as they are written in the Word of God. God bless you and have a very Merry Christmas!
Revival – Part 4
We are living in the last days and those who know the Word of God and study Bible prophecy are well aware of this fact and they are preaching on the last days and prophecies concerning the time of the end, preceding the Lord’s return. I currently partner with nine ministries; and five pastors of those ministries, who have congregations to minister to, are all preaching timely messages about the last days and they are directing the saints to Bible prophecy, because they, no doubt, feel the Holy Spirit compelling them to do so. Those who are keeping vigil are doing exactly what Christ instructed us to do in this hour: “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord shall find watching when He comes; truly I say to you that He shall gird himself and make them to sit down to meat and will come forth and serve them” Luke 12:37 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Can you imagine that, the Master and Creator of all things donning a servant’s cloth and serving His devoted children a fabulous meal? This is how much the Lord loves His faithful servants who are watching! Those who are now faithfully fasting, praying, reading the Word, supporting the ministry and keeping vigil are not sacrificing their time, efforts, money and strength in vain. There is a great reward ahead for those of us who are faithful “to the end:” “And you shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake, but he who endures to the end shall be saved” Matthew 10:22 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). We are not to depend on others to bring revival to us, although it is a great blessing when those we fellowship with are on fire for God; but we can and should live in a perpetual state of revival by the life we live before God. Those who keep watch through prayer, fasting, reading the Word and tithing their time and finances to the Lord stay revived in their hearts and souls before Him. Paul admonished the young minister, Timothy, “Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season (be ready for what comes at all times); reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine” 2 Timothy 4:2 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). We need to be ready for whatever comes through keeping covenant with the Lord in daily prayer times/vigil, studying God’s Holy Word and fasting on a regular basis. I encourage everyone to keep these practices, because they work! When trials and temptations come along, you will be fueled up with the power of God to defeat the enemy of your soul; but not only that, you will be instantly ready to help others who need prayer and encouragement, or deliverance. Moreover, Jesus instructed His disciples to do these things, so they are vital for us also today, especially in these perilous times: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come, for men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those who are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power to live godly, from such turn away” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). As this admonition from Paul to Timothy points out, some who demonstrate this behavior even have a “form of godliness” (saying they are Christians), but they deny the power to “live godly.” These are Calvinists. They believe once a person is saved, they are always saved and can never backslide; hence, they live any way they want to live and still believe they are going to make it to heaven. That doctrine came right up out of the pits of hell. The Word tells us: “For God has not called us to uncleanness, but unto holiness” 1 Thessalonians 4:7; “Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” Hebrews 12:14 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). It couldn’t be more clear, without holiness no man shall see the Lord. At times we might sin or fail the Lord, but we repent and denounce that sin immediately. There is a vast difference between falling and repenting when we do sin, versus living in a willful state of continuous sin. The Word also tells us: “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God…for it is impossible for those who were once enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost and have tasted the good Word of God and the powers of the world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance, seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh and put Him to an open shame” Hebrews 6:1,4-6 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The Word is clear; we must walk in holiness.
Revival – Part 3
Last month I shared some Kingdom Keys (Matthew 16:19) from the Word on how to get prayers answered. I want to expound on a prerequisite with God, before I go any further in this study. Yes, God has some prerequisites. Salvation is free, but getting answers to your prayers and receiving other spiritual gifts sometimes requires our efforts. Jesus’s own disciples asked Him why they couldn’t cast out a devil, right after Jesus cast that same devil out: “And when they came to the multitude, there came to Him a certain man kneeling down, saying, Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic and very vexed. He falls into the fire and water often. I brought him to Your disciples and they couldn’t cure him. Then Jesus said, ‘Oh faithless and perverse generation (He is speaking about His own disciples), how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him to me.’ Jesus rebuked the devil and he departed out of him and the child was cured from that hour. Then Jesus’s disciples came to Him privately and said, Why couldn’t we cast him out? Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief, for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, remove to another place, and it shall move, and nothing shall be impossible to you. However, this kind (a very powerful devil) does not go out but by prayer and fasting (not eating for a specified period of time)” Matthew 17:14-21. Far too many people have allowed their possessed children to be institutionalized and put on Prozac, because they haven’t studied God’s Word; they are unaware of the Kingdom Keys (God’s prerequisites), which Jesus gave to His disciples, and which may be given to us (Matthew 16:19). I went with our pastor and a few members of the church (on a moment’s notice) to pray for a woman’s daughter. We arrived at the home and as soon as I saw the girl, I knew immediately she was demon possessed. The girl looked emaciated, sticks for limbs, and she crawled on the floor. She was about 16-17-years-old. Her countenance revealed she was demon possessed. Her face was dazed, sometimes distorted, and her facial expressions weren’t appropriate. Her mother said she was normal before, but suddenly began to change, and now she wasn’t eating much. As we prayed, the pastor got down on his knees to pray for the girl. As she crawled, he crawled with her, praying. Nothing happened. I asked the pastor if they fasted before coming to pray. He said they hadn’t. I suggested that we take time to fast and pray and return to cast out this devil. We left, but later the pastor told me the mother decided to take her daughter to Mexico to get help. I pleaded with the pastor to tell the mother things would be different this time, after we had time to fast and pray, but he said she was adamant. I felt awful for that girl and her mother. When Jesus cast out devils, He never got down on his hands and knees before a demon possessed person. He was prayed up and fasted up all the time (Matthew 4:1-2; Luke 22:39-46). He was commanding and powerful in the Holy Spirit. I told the story once in a Newsletter, so I will briefly state that a demon possessed woman needed deliverance at the church, and while everyone else left, I stayed with two women who prayed and fasted often for such occasions. I prayed, while the other two laid hands on the woman and commanded the devil to flee. I was only about 15-years-old and I didn’t yet understand the Kingdom Keys. I went to lay hands on this woman, as the others did, and I was immediately shocked, like an electrical bolt hit me. Sister Ford had discernment, I mean she could see through people. She momentarily left the “exorcism” and prayed over me for God’s protection. Then she went back to casting out this devil and when it left, the doors of the church flew open by themselves (the devil blasted them open) with a resounding BANG! That woman was delivered that night and I can tell you, these two saints of God, who fasted and prayed consistently, didn’t get down on their hands and knees, saying meek prayers. They were two powerhouses for God! I have thanked the Lord many times for the example my mother was before me, as she raised me in a little Pentecostal holiness church, and for women the Lord brought into my life to be mentors, like Sister Eunice Ford, Sister Ruth Shields and Sister Helen Seratt. God miraculously answers all of my prayers, because I have learned to fast, pray and not pray amiss. Sometimes I have to wait; generally I have to wait, and sometimes it’s a long wait, but the Lord always comes through. Someone promised me they would fix a mess, but it had been months and the situation remained the same. One morning after prayer I was vexed and I yelled, Oh Lord, I am sick of this! I no more than got a few (violent) prayers out of my mouth and my phone started ringing. It was the person who made the promise and was ready to fix the mess. It was taken care of that very morning! Get serious with God and His Holy Word, friends, because if you meet the prerequisites, God will do what He promised He would do (John 16:23-24). He never lies! God bless you!
Revival – Part 2
Last month, I wrote about the Brownsville Revival that started in 1995 and ran through the year 2000 at the Brownsville Assembly of God Church in Pensacola, Florida; and how Pastor Kilpatrick and the saints there prayed for revival for about two years preceding the greatest outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit in America since the early church (Acts 2). The Word of God confirms that there is POWER when at least two of God’s people pray together and they “agree” for what is needed from the Lord: “Again, I (Jesus) say to you, if two of you agree on the earth concerning every matter, whatever they ask, it shall be done for them of My Father, Who is in the heavens (original Greek). Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I Am there in the midst of them” Matthew 18:19-20 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Did the Word say that if they agree, it “might” be done? No, it did not. The Word says, “it shall be done.” Do you see the people of God getting together these days and praying specifically, in unison, for something and “agreeing” on it, confirming it by their words, saying, “God will do it?” I have agreed in prayer with others specifically for God to do a certain thing, saying, “We agree, it shall be done,” and God answered those prayers. He must do it, according to His promise, or He is a liar, but God never lies! I have heard some Christians say, “Let’s pray; God might do it.” That’s okay if they aren’t certain what the will of God is; but the Word is very specific concerning some things: salvation, sanctification, peace and healing (Isaiah 53:5); meeting your needs (Philippians 4:19); wisdom (James 1:5); the gift of the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). Christ died and suffered on the cross of Calvary for the first four promises: “But He was pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him and with His stripes we were healed” Isaiah 53:5 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Why would the Lord deny us any of these things? He already paid the price on Calvary to give them to us! Notice, “with His stripes we were healed (original Hebrew).” It’s already done! We only have to believe it and wait for the promise. This isn’t In and Out Burger. Sometimes we have to wait for the manifestation of our healing, and as we wait, our faith is being tried in the fire like gold (1 Peter 1:7)! The Word also says, “Now Faith is the substance (tangible thing) of things hoped for, the evidence (proof) of things not seen” Hebrews 11:1 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Notice, FAITH = EVIDENCE, or PROOF, of things not seen – yet. If we want to see our prayers answered, we have to get serious about prayer. The Word says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for the right one (spiritually prepared one) who approaches God, must believe that He is (exists) and that He becomes a rewarder to those who diligently seek after Him” Hebrews 11:6 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Notice that word “diligently.” The Word of God also tells us, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of the heavens suffers violence and the violent seize it” Matthew 11:12 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The Word says we need to “diligently” seek after God. Let’s tie this up with another Word of Truth: “Confess offenses to one another and pray for one another (spiritual preparation), so you can be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous one is effective” James 5:16 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Here are Kingdom Keys (Matthew 16:19) to getting your prayers answered, saints: prepare yourself spiritually, not only making certain you have repented of every sin before God, but repent of and clear up offenses between one another. Get in right standing before God and others on every issue, as much as you are able, then come boldly before the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16) with at least one other saint, if possible, and pray fervently (violently) and “agree” together for what is needed. If two or more people are praying at a prayer meeting and some are praying for God to heal someone, but others are praying, “if it’s Your will, Lord,” that is not agreement. It is always God’s will to heal the saints. He can certainly heal someone, and if it is their time to go, He can heal them and then take them home! How will anyone ever die? Have you ever heard of “natural causes?” Every saint of God should be leaving here of what men signify as “natural causes.” In fact, I dare say that God does take every saint and no unclean spirit of infirmity (Matthew 10:1; Mark 9:25) has the power to kill a saint of God! That’s where the devil has deceived even a lot of God’s own people. Saints get sick and God often takes them home because, for one thing, many today aren’t accustomed to praying the “prayer of faith” that raises up the sick (James 5:15); and when God takes His people out of the trial of sickness, even the people of God say they died of this or that. The Word says, “The righteous perishes (pass on) and no man lays it to heart, and men of mercy are gathered, with none discerning that the righteous is taken from the face of evil” Isaiah 57:1 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The Lord takes the righteous from this earth, not unclean spirits of sickness. God bless you.
Revival – Part 1
In 1993, Billie Donaldson was lying on her deathbed and while Pastor John Kilpatrick visited and prayed for her, she told him that she had been a charter member of the Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Florida, since it first started in 1939. She told Pastor Kilpatrick, who was her current pastor, that the church had humble beginnings and it was actually started in a horse stable. She said a prophetess would come through occasionally, and when she came to the church in 1939, she was standing by an old potbelly stove and she spoke these words: “The Lord says, I Am going to do a different work with this church. I Am not going to send this church to the world, but I Am going to bring the world to this church.” Pastor Kilpatrick preached a message during one of Perry Stone’s meetings and as he recounted this story, he said that in 1982, he was standing on the porch of the church (a much improved church by that time), taking a short break between teaching a Sunday School class and getting ready for his sermon, and he said he suddenly had a vision and he saw the tops of cars as far as the eye could see, with the evening sun glistening on the tops of all the cars, with a bit of a reddish hue to it. He said he wasn’t given to visions, but this was a vision he saw that morning. On Father’s Day in 1995, the Lord poured out His Spirit on the Brownsville Assembly of God Church in Pensacola, Florida, and a revival started which lasted five years, with more than 4.5 million people from all over the world attending, until the year 2000! Preceding the revival, the Lord spoke to Pastor John Kilpatrick. Pastor Kilpatrick had specific prayer times with the Lord, and as he went into the church alone one Saturday evening, as he had always done, and as he was praying, the Lord said to him, “If you will make this a house of prayer, I will pour out My Spirit in this place.” He said the Lord gave him instructions on how the people should pray. He cancelled the regular Sunday evening service and instead called the church to meet for prayer on Sunday evenings for one hour. He said the devil tempted him to cancel the prayer meeting on Sunday evenings for about a year, but he wouldn’t, because he knew what the Lord told him. Part of the Lord’s instructions were that he set up 12 banners in the sanctuary, one titled “Revival,” another for “Souls,” another for “Schools,” another for “Healing,” etc. He said a few people left, but most stayed. He said, “God never said My house shall be known as a house of preaching, a house of announcements, a house of fellowship, or a house of worship. He said, ‘My house shall be known as a house of prayer among all nations’” (Mark 11:17). I am quoting Pastor Kilpatrick, because I have this sermon on DVD, and I am inspired of the Holy Spirit to share excerpts of this profound message with you. The Lord instructed Pastor Kilpatrick to have the congregation gather at each banner and pray together for the subject on the banner for five minutes at each one, rotating from one banner to another. Five times 12 banners equals one hour. The saints in Pensacola were called to pray for one hour, but the Holy Spirit began to move in such a manner that the hour of prayer turned into two hours, and they learned to pray effectually and fervently. After about two years of praying, and praying specifically for revival, one evening the Lord spoke to Pastor Kilpatrick and said, “I Am about to pour out My Spirit on this place!” Not long after that, Pastor Kilpatrick invited his good friend, Evangelist Steve Hill, who had previously held a great revival in South America, to the Brownsville Assembly of God to speak on Father’s Day in 1995. God poured out His Spirit in the church that day and revival broke out and people began attending from all around the United States; and as the word began to spread around the world about the mighty move of God there, people came from all over the world. They were coming into Pensacola on buses, trains and planes from all around the world. As many as about 6,000 people were on the church grounds on a given day to feel God’s presence, to be healed, and to get in on the greatest outpouring of God’s Spirit in America. People were profoundly healed. One Vietnam Veteran in attendance, whose hand had been partly blown off by a grenade, was healed; God made his hand whole again right during the service. His wife stood up screaming during one of the revival services and as she was shaking, staring at her husband and screaming, Pastor Kilpatrick went to them to see what was happening, and as he witnessed this man’s hand growing back, he started screaming too! These are true facts, friends. God is still “the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).” I think even a lot of God’s people have been fooled into believing He stopped healing after the four Gospels were written. Not so! I have been miraculously healed several times. “Let God be true (to His Word), but every man a liar…” (Romans 3:4).
“They are going to try to lock up your church…”
In 2019, before COVID-19 surfaced in the US, I watched Pastor John Kilpatrick preach a message during Perry Stone’s Camp Meeting, and I heard him say, “Something is boiling over in Washington.” “I am prophetically warning you that such issues are coming to families and churches, that the devil is going to try to lock up your church; he’s going to try to lock up your effectiveness; he’s going to try to lock up your family, but don’t you let him do it; come against him!” This was indeed a prophetic word about the imminent pandemic, which at that time, we didn’t know was coming here in the US; he also included a prophecy about the liberal Communist-Democrats trying to shut down, not only every business, except those selling and providing “essential” products and services (and Governor Gavin Newsom’s winery!), but also families and churches, just as Pastor Kilpatrick prophesied. This is the second of Pastor Kilpatrick’s prophecies that I have seen come to pass before my eyes. Some of us fought back though, and just recently California’s Governor Gavin Newsom was fined $1.35 million for shutting down churches and home Bible studies (freedom to exercise religious practices is a constitutional right), and he was also ordered by the US District Court not to close any churches, the first injunction of its kind. Pastor Che Ahn, founder and Pastor of Harvest Rock Church, received a letter from the Pasadena Criminal Prosecutor threatening him and anyone who attends church with criminal charges and up to one year in prison and daily fines of $1,000. Pastor Ahn was relentless and he and his congregation took a stand against this Communist tyranny. He was the plaintiff in the above-referenced case. He also said, “Fifty percent of worship is singing. We’re gonna sing no matter what.” In the meantime, the entertainment industry in California is allowed to film TV singing competitions. (Hollywood moguls have a special relationship with liberal Communist-Democrat politicians. Many of them are pedophiles and they traffic children. Some of them even offer children to satan as burnt sacrifices.) Pastor Ahn’s courage in Christ Jesus blasted the vile face of tyranny! Years ago, Allen West, former Florida Congressman and current Chair of the Texas Republican Party, said that 81 Democratic members of Congress are members of the Communist Party. Joe Biden is one of them. America is at risk, friends, and we need to stay in prayer, and everyone who can should join the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (https://CSPOA.org). Originally, it was established for law enforcement officials, and those retired from law enforcement, but it is now open for membership among all freedom, Constitution-loving Americans. Sheriff Richard Mack, President and founder of CSPOA and former Sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, won a Supreme Court case against the federal government, against the Brady Act, in that it violated our constitutional right to bear arms. Some people believe that Christians should have nothing to do with guns, but that’s not what Jesus taught His Apostles before He ascended, knowing that the Romans would lay siege against Jerusalem, “Then He said to them, But now he who has a purse (supply bag), let him bring it, and his scrip (wallet today), and he who has no sword (firearm today), let him sell his garment and buy one” Luke 22:36 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). Those who disagree should consider that guns were confiscated from the Jews in Germany before they were cattle-carred to concentration camps and atrocities were committed against them. They were gassed, experimented on, even their children endured macabre experiments by Nazi physicians, to the extent that the parents of one set of twins killed their own children, after they were sewn together, back to back, to prevent their further suffering! Most people have no idea of the atrocities suffered by the Jews. Most people don’t even realize that the same type of liberals working in government today brought war criminals into the United States, even ones that experimented on the Jews, during “Project Paperclip.” The Holocaust didn’t happen that long ago and people shouldn’t be so presumptuous as to think it couldn’t happen again. If our God-fearing men hadn’t fought against the British and won, we wouldn’t even be a free nation today. Millions of our good men and women have died for our freedoms in this nation, and if we fail to be diligent, they will have all died for nothing! God bless you all.

“With the sleight of hand, the nations will be turned upside-down”
The angel of the Lord spoke to me on the morning of November 27, 2011, and he said, “With the sleight of hand, the nations will be turned upside-down.” Sleight means deceitful, craftiness. The Word tells us, “And then shall that wicked (lawless one – original Greek) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth and shall destroy (him) with the brightness of His coming; whose coming is after the working of satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness…” 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10. I wasn’t perplexed when this didn’t come to pass in 2011, or even the following year. God told Isaiah about Christ’s suffering for the sins of the people hundreds of years before Jesus our Savior came to earth (Isaiah 53:5). God gives us prophetic messages so we can warn others to watch, pray and prepare; and He also receives the glory when they come to pass. Certainly, I believe the nations were turned upside-down, as COVID-19 began to emerge quickly, not only in China, but it struck rapidly throughout the world. Some of us have not even felt the full impact of what many others have suffered, except for the inconvenience of covering our faces, especially since viruses travel through fabric. We need God’s protection, folks, and He is the only One Who can really keep us safe in these last days. We are truly living in the “perilous times” the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy about (2 Timothy 3:1). People throughout the nations have had to close their businesses, with some even suffering the complete loss of their business, income, assets, homes and apartments. Many people have become homeless post COVID-19. Our propagandized media has not even touched the surface of the devastation multitudes have suffered throughout the world. I have read about small business owners in Africa losing what little they had because of restrictions during the pandemic. I have read the testimonies of people right here in the United States being kicked out of their apartments, because they couldn’t go to work during the pandemic and they couldn’t pay their rent! https://www.curbed.com/2020/11/evictions-caused-covid-deaths.html. You won’t hear about these tragedies from MSM (mainstream media), or read about them on AP, CNN or BBC internet news sites. I find this kind of true news on Christian and conservative internet news sites (I haven’t had television for many years; it’s all too disgusting to watch). The news hits internet sites faster than they are aired on TV. I am not only able to keep up with current events, but I read news throughout the nations on the net. Many nations, especially the great nations, publish their news in English. In January 2010, the Lord called me to publish Christian websites and keep up with current news, in order to report on how these events correlate with Bible prophecy. I haven’t written about, or spoken of many of the miraculous things that the Lord has shown me, because people can’t receive it. I have “peppered” a few things into newsletters and articles on the internet, as I am led of the Lord, but generally I can’t write about it. As time is winding up and the Lord’s return is ever closer, I believe this will change, because others are going to start witnessing signs and wonders too in these last days. Jesus foretold of pandemics. The word used in scripture is “pestilences:” “Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom (Greek transliteration – ethnos eppa ethnos – ethnic groups against ethnic groups; basileia eppa basileia – religion against religion, as in Muslims against Christians), and there will be famines (like we see happening now), pestilences (like coronavirus) and earthquakes in diverse places” Matthew 24:7 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). This COVID-19 pandemic will not be the first event to turn the nations “upside-down.” This type of pretribulation “travail” will happen more frequently, as we head full speed toward the great tribulation. The Word tells us, “For when they shall say, ‘Peace and safety,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape” 1 Thessalonians 5:3. Jesus said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” Matthew 24:21. For those of us who know God’s Holy Word, how it never fails, and that hundreds of Bible prophecies have already been fulfilled, we also know that last days Bible prophecy will be fulfilled – and we are seeing prophecies fulfilled now before our very eyes. The above passage of scripture (Matthew 24:7) not only forewarns us of pestilences, but Jesus said that “ethnic groups will come against ethic groups” (literal translation of “nation will rise against nation” in the original Greek). We are now seeing liberals inciting a race war: https://nypost.com/2021/06/04/nyc-pyscho-fantasizes-about-shooting-white-people-in-yale-talk/. The tragic part is that this psychopath is speaking to our nation’s youth at Yale University; then people wonder what is happening to their teens, as they send them off to college!
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 8
Last month we studied the Day of Atonement (יוֹם כִּיפּוּר – Yom Kippur in Hebrew), which God told Moses and the children of Israel to observe, and He told them, “afflict your souls” on the Day of Atonement, which clearly represents the future suffering of Jesus, Yeshua, on the cross, as He paid the penalty for our sins; and in exchange, He gave us eternal life, if we only receive it by faith and follow His teachings. We are now ready to study the last and final feast, the Feast of Tabernacles, which the Lord told Moses and the children of Israel to celebrate. These are also feasts that Christians should observe, if they will, because they are important to God, so they should be important to Christians. God told Moses, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. On the first day, there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day, you shall have a holy convocation and you shall offer an offering by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly and you shall do no customary work on it…Also, on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a Sabbath rest, and you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days…You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I Am the Lord your God” Leviticus 23:34-36, 39-40, 42-43. We are taught in the New Testament (the New Covenant God made with His people) that we are “grafted in among them” (grafted into the family of Jews – Romans 11:17); in other words, we have been adopted into the family chosen by God. Throughout the Old Testament, God’s chosen people were the Jews, because they believed the God of heaven and they received His Word. As believers in Jesus Christ, the Jewish Messiah, we are adopted Jews. When Jesus returns to this world, together with His saints (Jude 1:14; Revelation 19:11-16), who will have already been “caught up” into heaven, as the great tribulation begins (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), the Word tells us that when Jesus returns, “His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives” (Zechariah 14:4). The Mount of Olives is in Jerusalem, Israel. He is returning, with His saints, at the end of days, to Jerusalem, “the Holy City” (Matthew 27:53). Jerusalem, the Holy City, is where God placed His Name (1 Kings 11:36; 2 Kings 21:4). God said, “…the city which I have chosen for Myself, to put My Name there” 1 Kings 11:36. The Lord will return there with all of His saints to fight the second to the last battle (the last battle will be after His thousand-year Millennial Reign [Revelation 20:7-10]) and defend Jerusalem against a siege by the nations, which will have all converged against Jerusalem (Zechariah 14). You may be asking yourself at this point, what the return of the Lord has to do with the Feast of Tabernacles. It has everything to do with that feast. The Lord told the Jews to celebrate it and to make booths and dwell in them for seven days every year during the seventh month to commemorate their deliverance from the bondage of Egypt; and while they journeyed through the wilderness, out of Egypt’s bondage, they dwelt in booths for forty years. During that time also, the Lord was with them and He led them through the wilderness in a cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21). This feast was also indicative of the fact that God will dwell with us forever when He returns. Zechariah also prophesied that we, the people of God, will celebrate this feast forever with the Lord, when He returns: “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all nations, which came against Jerusalem, shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations which do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles” Zechariah 14:16-19. The Feast of Tabernacles is not only a Jewish feast to celebrate their deliverance from Egypt’s bondage and dwelling in booths, this feast will be celebrated also to commemorate the Lord’s return and that He will dwell among His people forever!
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 7
Last month, we studied the Feast of Trumpets (רֹאשׁ הַשָּׁנָה – Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew), what many Jews consider to be the “mystery feast,” because very little is mentioned about it, except God told Moses to observe “a Sabbath rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets” (Leviticus 23:23-24). Yeshua, Jesus, gave the Apostle Paul a revelation about a “mystery” and he said, “the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible…” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53). Jesus also said, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life” (John 11:25), so we can clearly see Jesus in the Feast of Trumpets and its significance to the resurrection of the dead. Now we have come to the Day of Atonement (יוֹם כִּיפּוּר – Yom Kippur in Hebrew). The Day of Atonement is the most holy day of the year in Judaism, and it falls on the tenth day of the seventh month, Tishri, on the Jewish calendar (between about mid-September and mid-October on the Gregorian calendar). “And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a Day of Atonement; it shall be a holy convocation to you and you shall afflict your souls (abstinence, as in fasting) and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord. And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make an atonement (compensation for sins) for you before the Lord your God; for whatever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day shall be cut off from among his people. And whatever soul it be that does any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a Sabbath of rest and you shall afflict your souls in the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath” Leviticus 23:26-32. A day begins at sunset on the Hebrew calendar. Jews celebrate the atonement of their sins on this High Holy Day with fasting and attending the synagogue from sundown on the 9th, through sundown on the 10th day of Tishri. Obviously, this is a most important day to the Lord, and He gives a stern warning to those Jews who do not observe that feast day. God already knew during the time of Moses that this day would be a type and shadow of the crucifixion of Christ, when He would make the atonement for our sins by offering His own body a living sacrifice. The Word tells us, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him; for if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now received the reconciliation (to God)” Romans 5:8-11. God told Moses, “you shall afflict your souls” on the Day of Atonement. This signifies also what would come in the future, not only the death and resurrection of Christ, Who paid the penalty four our sins; but if you receive His sacrifice, receiving Him as your personal Savior, it is imperative that one receive Him with reverence and humility, with true repentance of sin. If one comes before God and simply acknowledges the death of Christ for their sins, and by pretence says a sinner’s prayer, intending to continue in sin, that soul will truly be cut off, if they don’t come to sincere repentance and turn away from sin, understanding that God has called us to holiness: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which (holiness) no man shall see the Lord” Hebrews 12:14. The Word continues to exemplify that fact: “Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators (unlawful intercourse), nor idolaters (idolizing something/someone other than God), nor adulterers (intercourse with one other than one’s spouse), nor effeminate (men acting like women), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (men having intercourse with men [these all apply to women too, but men were addressed in the Word of God]), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers (verbal abuse of others), nor extortionists (unlawful gain) shall inherit the Kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. These are all examples of sins that will keep a person out of heaven, if they continue in those sins. There is a vast difference between willfully continuing in sin, versus falling in a weak moment. If we fall, we can repent and our sins will be removed from our record in heaven, as if we had never sinned. The Day of Atonement clearly represents Christ’s future atonement for our sins. The Jews “afflict” themselves on that day; we are to “take up our cross (abstain from sin)” and follow Christ’s example: “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me’” Matthew 16:24. His church (the saints) must be “holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:27).
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 6
Last month we studied the Feast of Weeks (שבועות – Shavuot in Hebrew), or Pentecost, and how Jesus, Yeshua, is visible in that feast. Jesus is referred to in the New Testament as the “Word” (1 John 5:7). During the Feast of Weeks, a celebration of the wheat harvest, Jews also commemorate God giving the Law, His Word, to Moses. The gift of the Holy Spirit was also given to Jesus’s disciples on the Day of Pentecost, just as God promised in His Word (Joel 2:28-29; Acts 1:3-9; Acts 2). Now we can move on to the next Jewish feast, which is the Feast of Trumpets (רֹאשׁ הַשָּׁנָה – Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew). There isn’t much said in the Word about this feast, only that God instructed Moses that there should be blowing of trumpets: “Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord’” Leviticus 23:23-24. That’s it! That’s all the Lord told Moses about the Feast of Trumpets. I have heard that some Jews consider this feast to be a “mystery” feast and they don’t know why they are to blow trumpets and celebrate this particular day, except that this is what the Lord directed them to do. This is very interesting to me, because it immediately draws my attention to what the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth about his revelation from Christ concerning the resurrection of the dead. He wrote: “Behold, I tell you a mystery, we shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed; for this corruptible (body) must put on incorruption (immortal body), and this mortal must put on immortality” 1 Corinthians 15:51-53. Paul was first among the Apostles to receive this revelation about the resurrection of the dead; and notice, Jesus revealed to him that “the trumpet will sound” during this event. He taught the same thing to the members at Thessalonica: “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and, thus, we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. Notice here, again, that the “trumpet” will be heard during the resurrection of those who “sleep,” and the catching up, or “rapture,” of the saints who remain on earth at the time of the resurrection. This, by the way, is not the “return of the Lord,” or the “second coming of Christ;” but a meeting in the air, when God resurrects the dead and raptures the living who are found faithful at that time. It is later, after the seven-year tribulation, that Christ returns with His saints to the Mount of Olives on white horses (Jude 1:14; Revelation 19:11-16), which is the actual second coming of Christ. In fact, most of those left behind, when the Lord resurrects the dead and raptures His saints, won’t have a clue what happened to the saints that are suddenly missing from the earth. This is also a time when the antichrist will take advantage of the mystery and deceive a lot of people with his own answer as to why the saints of God are missing. I have also heard that, at least some, rabbis consider this feast to be a celebration of the resurrection of the dead. Some definitely refer to it as the “Day of Remembrance” (יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן – Yom Hazikaron in Hebrew), which brings me to another passage of scripture in the Old Testament (Tanakh) about God’s Book of Remembrance, and those He will remember when He gathers His “jewels:” “Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them, so a Book of Remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord, and who meditate upon His name. They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make up My jewels, and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him” Malachi 3:16-17 NKJV. He will spare them from what? Jesus spoke of that day we need to be spared from: “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” Matthew 24:21. He was making reference to sparing His “jewels” from the great tribulation to come, because they were found faithful. Note that Paul’s revelation of the rapture is located in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, and the Lord spoke of sparing His faithful saints in Malachi 3:16-18. I have seen similar parallels in the scriptures. If you give God the “firstfruits” of your life, tithing your time and finances to the Lord, and keep His Commandments, your names are written in His Book of Remembrance, which is, as we can see during this study, tied to the Day of Remembrance, the resurrection of the dead, and the immediate catching up, or rapture, of the saints who are faithful to the Lord. Jesus said, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life” (John 11:25).
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23 – Part 5
Last month, we saw how Jesus, Yeshua, is clearly seen in the Jewish Feast of Firstfruits (Hebrew: בכורים, pronounced Bikkurim), primarily in that He rose from the dead on the Feast of Firstfruits, showing He was indeed the “Firstfruits of the Resurrection.” This month, we will look at the Feast of Weeks (Hebrew: שָׁבוּעוֹת, pronounced Shavuot, which means “weeks”), and we will see how Christ remains the central theme in this Jewish feast as well. From the day after the Sabbath, when the Feast of Firstfruits ends, God instructed Moses to “count fifty days” and… “then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord” (Leviticus 23:16 NKJV), which is the Feast of Weeks (seven Sabbaths after the Feast of Firstfruits), also known as Pentecost, which means “50” in Greek (the original New Testament was written in Greek). The Feast of Weeks refers to the number 50 because fifty days (seven Sabbaths) after Firstfruits brings us to the Feast of Weeks, the sixth day of Sivan on the Hebrew calendar (falling between May 15 and June 14 on the Gregorian calendar). First, this feast marks the wheat harvest, during which time each family brought two loaves of bread baked with fine flour to the priests for an offering to God. Jews also commemorate God giving the Law (His Word) to Moses on tablets on Mount Sinai during the Feast of Weeks. The Apostle John reflected that Christ is the Word, as he wrote about the Triunity of God: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are One” 1 John 5:7. The “Word” refers to Jesus, the Son of God, in this passage of scripture, because He came speaking the Word of God to His people. The Feast of Weeks is a celebration of God giving Moses the Law, in addition to the wheat harvest. Thus, most Jews who celebrate the Feast of Weeks have been celebrating Jesus, Who is the “Word,” without even knowing it! Continue reading and this becomes clearer. Why did John write, “these three are One?” We can find the answer to that in the Old Testament (Hebrew: תַּנַ״ךְ, pronounced Tanakh), in the writings of the prophet Isaiah: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” Isaiah 9:6. The Word of God plainly tells us here that the “Son” is also “The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father;” but they are also Three, Father, Son (Word) and Holy Spirit, as defined by the prophet Isaiah and the Apostle John. You might ask how that can be? An excellent example for us to consider is what constitutes “water,” H2O: 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom, but you can only see the water (Jesus); the hydrogen (Father) and oxygen (Holy Spirit) are not visible to us. It is also not coincidental that water is referred to as the “solvent of life” and is the only substance to exist as a solid, liquid and gas! Who is this “child” referred to as “The Mighty God” in Isaiah 9:6? Throughout millennium there has only been one child born that is notably the “Son of God” all over the world, but who is also One with God (1 John 5:7). Now if that still confuses you, remember what God said in Genesis 1:26: “And God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness…’” God speaks concerning the plurality of His being here, “Let Us,” “Our image,” “Our likeness…” The Feast of Weeks commemorates the giving of the Word on Mount Sinai, which is a type and shadow of the “Word” to come, Who is Jesus the Messiah. After His resurrection, Jesus was with His disciples for 40 days (Acts 1:3), then He ascended up to heaven (Acts 1:9). Before He ascended, He instructed them not to leave Jerusalem, but to stay there and wait until they received the promise of the Father (Joel 2:28-29, the Holy Spirit). The Apostles and the followers of Christ waited in an upper room in Jerusalem for the promise Jesus told them about (Acts 1:3-9). It was not coincidence that, as they waited there, the Holy Spirit came upon them and they spoke in other languages, as the Holy Spirit appeared over each of their heads as flames of fire, on the very day of Pentecost! God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24). This is why Christians, who believe in Jesus and the New Testament scriptures as the inspired Word of God, are often called “Pentecostals.” We, Pentecostals, believe that, just as described in Joel 2:28-29 and Acts 2, the Holy Spirit was promised to all of God’s people who want this gift (Acts 2:4; Acts 19:6); and we believe that this gift of the Holy Spirit is available to all who follow Christ (and take up their cross Matthew 10:38), for the asking (Acts 8:14-17; Luke 11:13; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:45; Acts 19:1-7). If you received Jesus as your Savior, He wants to empower you to live holy (Romans 12:1; 1 Peter 1:16), so pray for it and receive the Gift! In closing, the Feast of Weeks marks the wheat harvest, from which we make bread. Jesus said, “…Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God” Matthew 4:4. Love Jesus and His Word. He loves you with an everlasting love!
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 4
In November 2020, we looked at how Christ is revealed in the Passover, Pesach – פסח – Hebrew. This month of January 2021, we will continue with this study of the Jewish Feasts and now consider the Feast of Firstfruits and how Christ is also seen in this feast. We touched on this revelation in November, as I concluded that issue of this series with the following passage of scripture, “And the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints who slept arose and came out of the graves after His resurrection and went into the holy city (Jerusalem) and appeared unto many” Matthew 27:52-53. Being the true Passover Lamb, Jesus was actually crucified at Passover, which was no coincidence. Through His death, paying the penalty of sin for the entire world’s populations, He sanctified the people with His precious blood, signifying the removal of the “leaven” in our lives, which is indicative of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which aligns with and follows Passover for seven days. The number “seven” in rabbinical teachings alludes to completion, perfection, if you will. The reason we have unleavened bread for seven days during and after Passover means we need to continue living, as much as lies within us, a sinless life, following the example of Christ, “who knew no sin” (2 Corinthians 5:21). Now we have come to the Feast of Firstfruits and we will start this study by understanding that God desires and expects the firstfruits of our increase. God told Moses, “Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you come to the land which I give to you and when you reap the harvest thereof, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest and he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you, on the morrow after the Sabbath, the priest shall wave it” Leviticus 23:10-11. That sheaf of the firstfruits offering is given to show the Lord our gratitude to Him for all that He has done for us, and to show that He comes first and foremost in our lives. This definition is clear throughout the teachings of the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Hadasha (New Covenant). This firstfruit alludes to tithes, which were paid by Abram to Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18-20). In fact, we are to bring the “best” of our firstfruits, “to cause a blessing to rest on your house” (Ezekiel 44:30). Are we not ordained to give our very best to God? Some like to give their leftovers, what they don’t need. God looks down from heaven and He sees the hearts of everyone, even the intents of our hearts. If we give to God out of necessity, He knows it. The Word tells us, “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly, or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver” 2 Corinthians 9:7. The first example to us, that we should give our firstfruits (tithes) to God is actually found in Genesis 14, when Abram gave tithes of all he recovered from the four kings who spoiled Sodom and Gomorrah and took his nephew, Lot, and others captive. Melchizedek, whose name means “King of Righteousness” in Hebrew, the King of Salem (which means “King of Peace” in Hebrew), came out to meet Abram after his victory, and He brought bread and wine to celebrate. Abram then gave Him, Yeshua, tithes of all. Yes, Melchizedek was actually Jesus, our Lord and Savior! It was said of Melchizedek that He was “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a Priest continually” Hebrews 7:1-3. Who else bears the name, King of Peace and King of Righteousness? Who else, but God, has no parents, no beginning, nor end of days? When God said, “Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness…” (Genesis 1:26), who was He talking to? Yeshua, His Son, who also has no beginning, no end of days – He is Eternal. It was also said of Messiah, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” Isaiah 9:6. Isaiah prophesied these things about Jesus. There are more revelations to be seen in the Feast of Firstfruits. It was said of Yeshua, Jesus, “But now Christ is raised from the dead and has become the Firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep (died). For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die (because of Adam’s sin), even so in Christ all shall be made alive, but each one in his own order: Christ the Firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming…The last enemy that will be destroyed is death, for He (God) has ‘put all things under His feet’ (Psalm 8:6)” 1 Corinthians 15:20-27. Paul also wrote, “If only in this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable” 1 Corinthians 15:19. Christ not only came to give us life more abundantly here (John 10:10), but He came to pay the penalty for our sins, once and for all, so that we, all who believe, could have eternal life (John 3:15-16).
Prophesies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ – 2020 Christmas Issue
The prophets of God said that a Savior would come into the world to redeem man and save him from the penalty of sin (scriptures below). The celebrated time of Christ’s birth is a perfect time to remember God’s promise to send our Savior. There are too many scriptures foretelling Jesus’s birth, ministry and suffering to include in this newsletter, although here are a few in remembrance of the profound fulfillment of prophecies given thousands of years ago:
The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will conceive and bear a Son and will call His name Immanuel (meaning God with us – among numerous other names identified by the prophet Isaiah).
Isaiah 7:14 (~740 BC [Before Christ]. His appearance is engraved in our timeline!)
He would be born of a virgin
|In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. The angel came to her and said, “Hail, you who are highly favored; the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women.” The angel said to her, “Fear not, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive and bring forth a Son and you will call His name Jesus” (Yeshua in Hebrew, which means Salvation). Luke 1:26-31|
You, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall He come forth to Me, He that is to be ruler in Israel, whose going forth has been from old, from everlasting.
Micah 5:2 (~700 BC)
He would be born in Bethlehem
|Joseph went up from Galilee, out of the City of Nazareth, into Judea to the City of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, who was great with child. So it was while they were there, the days were completed that she should deliver, and she brought forth her firstborn son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7|
|I will declare the decree: The Lord said to me, “You are My Son; this day I have begotten You.” Psalm 2:7 (~900 BC)||He would be declared the Son of God||Lo, a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17|
|Rejoice greatly, oh daughter of Zion; shout, oh daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes to you; He is just and has salvation, lowly, and riding upon a colt, the foal of an ass.
Zechariah 9:9 (~520 BC)
|His triumphal entry into Jerusalem||They brought the colt to Jesus and cast their garments on him and He sat on him. And they that went before Him and followed Him cried, saying, “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” And Jesus entered Jerusalem and into the temple…Mark 11:7,9,11|
|He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and we hid our faces from Him; He was despised and we did not esteem Him.
Isaiah 53:3 (~740 BC)
|He would be rejected by the people||They cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him.” Pilate said to them, “Should I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” John 19:15|
|I will give Him a portion with the great and He will divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul to death and He was numbered with transgressors; He bore the sins of many, making intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:12 (~740 BC)
|Crucified among criminals||He was crucified with two thieves, one on His right, and the other on His left. Mark 15:27|
Never a man spoke like this man, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. No one fulfilled the prophecies of the Messiah to come like Jesus. This being the dispensation of the Messiah (His return), who else could possibly fulfill all the same prophecies? He died to pay the penalty for our sins, so we could have eternal life. If you haven’t received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, won’t you take care of your eternal soul and destiny today? You only need to say a simple prayer from your heart, asking God to forgive you of your sins; and after you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, follow His teachings outlined in the Word of God. God bless you and Merry Christmas!
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 3
Last month, we looked at how Christ is revealed in the Sabbath, Shabbat. This month, we will see a clear picture of Yeshua, Jesus, in the Passover, Pesach – פסח Hebrew. Passover is celebrated by Jews, and some Gentile believers, to honor their freedom from slavery in Egypt, after God afflicted the Egyptians with ten plagues (nothing like a good ol’ plague to set the wicked straight, or they end up dead!). Pesach (pronounced Pesakh) means to “pass over,” or skip, and the reason the feast is called Passover is because when God killed the firstborn of Egypt, because Pharaoh refused to let His people go, God “passed over” the Jews, in that the blood of the Passover lamb had been placed on the top and side posts of their doors. Before Passover and the Exodus of God’s people from Egypt, God instructed Moses and Aaron to have the Jews bring a lamb for each family, which was “without blemish, a male of the first year” (reflects the holiness of Christ, and that He is a male) and slay it on the fourteenth day of the first month of the (holy) year. They were to gather the blood, as it was slain, and God told Moses and Aaron to have the Jews strike it on the two side posts and on the upper doorpost of their houses. God said, “For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt; I Am the Lord. Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be on you, to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt” Exodus 12:12-13. They were to roast the lamb by fire (indicative of the suffering Jesus endured as He was lashed with a whip and then nailed to the cross). They were to eat all of the lamb and let nothing remain until morning, just as we are to receive everything about Jesus and all of His Words as truth. John the Revelator wrote of Him, “And I saw heaven opened and, behold, a white horse, and He Who sat on him was called Faithful and True…” Revelation 19:11. The Jews were to eat the Passover lamb in haste, “And thus you shall eat it, with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand” Exodus 12:11. The New Covenant relevance is that we are to be ready to leave this world and go to God at all times, and “do not let the sun go down on your wrath” (Ephesians 4:26); meaning we need to be prayerful and repent as often as necessary, to make certain we are always in right standing with God and ready to be “caught up” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) when He returns for us. God also said, “You shall eat unleavened bread for seven days. On the first day, you shall remove leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day, until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel” Exodus 12:15. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is celebrated with Passover. Many people believe it was only because the Jews didn’t have time to leaven their bread (Exodus 12:39), so Passover is observed with unleavened bread; but the real reason why unleavened bread is observed is because God specifically told the Jews to remove leaven from their homes from the very first day (Exodus 12:15), and leaven also represents sin. Moses told Aaron and his sons, “Take the grain offering that remains of the offerings made by fire to the Lord and eat it without leaven beside the altar, for it is most holy” Leviticus 10:12. Here, the Word references unleavened bread as that which should be eaten with that which is “most holy.” In the New Testament, we find that Jesus said to His Jewish disciples, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees (referring to their doctrine, which was sin-laced)” Matthew 16:6. In another instance, Jesus said to His disciples, “…Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy…And I say unto you, My friends, be not afraid of them who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do, but I forewarn you whom you shall fear, fear Him, Who after He has killed has power to cast into hell; yes, I say unto you, fear Him” Luke 12:1, 4-5. Jesus is the Passover “Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” John the Revelator wrote, “And all who dwell on the earth shall worship Him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” Revelation 13:8. In the foreknowledge of God, Jesus was slain, as a Passover Lamb, to redeem souls from the destroyer, not only at Passover, but since man was created. He is the Redeemer of those who receive Him, not only since His death and resurrection, but also of those who believed in Him by faith before He came into the world. Jesus said, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it, and was glad” John 8:56. During the three days between His death and resurrection, Jesus testified of Himself to the souls in Paradise and many were raised with him, “And the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints who slept arose and came out of the graves after His resurrection and went into the holy city (Jerusalem) and appeared unto many” Matthew 27:52-53.
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2 – Part 2
The Lord laid it on my heart last month to start a series of newsletters that will reveal Jesus the Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach (Hebrew), in each of the Jewish feasts that have been celebrated by Jews throughout millennia. There are seven feasts, holy convocations (holy meetings with God), in addition to the Sabbath, which is observed during the feasts. As God instructed Moses concerning each of the feasts (Leviticus 23), He began by reminding Moses that Israel must observe the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, which the Lord hallowed, and it could be numbered as a feast, in addition to the seven feasts observed by Israel. We should start this study with the Sabbath, because God reminds Moses to observe the Sabbath before He instructs him concerning the seven feasts. We can also see Jesus foretold in the Sabbath. The Prophet Jeremiah prophesied of the impending New Covenant, “Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah…This shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, says the Lord, ‘I will put My Law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people’” Jeremiah 31:31, 33. The Sabbath represents the age of the Messiah, with the return of Jesus Christ. It was four thousand years from the creation of Adam to the first appearance of Jesus. (I will also note here that the Archangel Gabriel told the Prophet Daniel exactly when the “Prince” [Messiah] of Israel would appear. He detailed the number of years to Daniel, from the time Artaxerxes commanded that the Jews could return to rebuild Jerusalem, to the time of the arrival of Messiah the Prince, would be 483 years, and that is, my friend, the exact timeframe, according to the Jewish lunar calendar, that Jesus made His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem! [Daniel 9:24-27]) We have just passed another 2,000-year mark since Jesus’s first appearance, which brings us to 6,000 years since creation; and now, we have entered the 7,000th millennium, which represents the seventh day, the Sabbath, the millennium that God will bring His people into their rest and He will dwell with them. The Word of God tells us, “Beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” 2 Peter 3:8. We have entered into the seventh day of the Lord, His Holy Shabbat (Hebrew), and He will return to give His people a rest. He will not wait the entire “seventh day” before He returns; in fact, He is somewhat overdue, but Peter already hinted to us about His slight delay: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise (to return), as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” 2 Peter 3:9. In other words, He already hinted to us that He has delayed his return somewhat, waiting for those who have not received Him as Messiah yet. He doesn’t want anyone to perish. (Are you the one holding all of the rest of us up?) John the Revelator told us about streets of gold in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:21). God won’t leave any of His own behind, so He is waiting patiently for all to come in, before the door is shut! (Matthew 25) I am earnestly waiting to see those streets of gold, so if you aren’t ready, please repent and get right with God. Elohim (Hebrew) created the heavens and the earth in six days, and He rested on the seventh day and hallowed it. God didn’t need physical rest. It wasn’t because of tiredness that He created the Sabbath for rest. This day of rest is a type and shadow, from the foreknowledge of God, that the dispensation of man’s kingdom would be six thousand years, and then He would return and dwell with His beloved on the “seventh day.” This is what the Sabbath is really all about. It is all about God’s relationship with us. The Lord hallowed a day that would signify when He returns to dwell with His beloved creation and rest with us from all of our labors, just as He rested from His labor; yet, He didn’t need rest, but it was to signify something much greater in His heart. We are in His heart, beloved. The Prophet Hosea also prophesied that the Lord would return after “two days,” which is actually two thousand years after Jesus the Messiah’s first appearance. Hosea wrote, “Come and let us return to the Lord, for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken (chastised for sin), but He will build us up. After two days, He will revive us; on the third day (within the 7,000th year, the third day after His first coming) He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight. Let us know; let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and the former rain to the earth” Hosea 6:1-3. He is coming again, and “on the third day,” since His first appearance, “He will raise us up!” To further signify that Jesus is the Lord of Sabbath, He said, “Come unto Me all of you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest to your souls” Matthew 11:28-29.
“Concerning the feasts of the Lord…holy convocations” Leviticus 23:2
Many people who call themselves “Christians” today have espoused a “replacement” theology concerning the Jewish people and their covenant with God. There are many who believe that Christians have replaced the Jews and the Jews, because of unbelief, have taken “a back seat,” if you will, concerning God’s covenant with the Jews and the oracles of God. If people would just read the Bible for themselves, with earnest prayer, they could learn and understand that this theology couldn’t be farther from the truth. Instead, they listen to self-centered preachers, whose doctrines are tweaked, and they have misinterpreted the scriptures, or they haven’t studied them all, and they are misleading masses. These same preachers rarely, if ever, would open the Old Testament scriptures, saying they have been replaced with the New Testament, just as the Christians have replaced the Jews! Instead of blowing away that heresy in one newsletter, I am going to do it in a series of studies, and bring out some very important facts that every Christian should know about how the Old Testament, in its entirety, shadows the New Testament. In every truth and story written in the Old Testament, we find that they signify in some way things that would come to pass under the New Covenant. Paul wrote, “Let no man judge you in meat, drink, respect of a holy day, new moon, or the Sabbath days, which are a shadow of things to come…” Colossians 2:16-17. The Apostle Paul was the overseer to the Gentiles, while the Apostle Peter was overseer to the Jews. Paul told the Gentiles not to allow anyone to judge them concerning keeping the precepts of the old law, which had become, since Christ came into the world, a shadow of the things to come. In other words, the Old Covenant mirrored what would happen in the future, when the Messiah would appear. The law is relevant to help, especially Jews, understand who the Messiah is. Jesus said, “Think not that I have come to destroy the law or the Prophets (writings of the prophets). I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill” Matthew 5:17. This passage of scripture is also important to understand: “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying, ‘Do not go into the way of the Gentiles and do not enter a city of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (the Jews!)’” Matthew 10:5-6. Jesus would later appear to Paul on the road to Damascus and He commissioned him to minister to the Gentiles at that time, after His ascension. Jesus commissioned His Apostles to evangelize the Jews first, because Jesus is a Jew and they are His chosen people. Gentiles are grafted (adopted) into the olive tree (Jewish lineage) when they accept Jesus as their Savior (Romans 11:19-27). God never cut off the Jews completely because of their sins, but the scriptures tell us that He will gather them together in these last days for Himself, for His Holy Name’s sake. “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Behold, I will save My people from the land of the east and from the land of the west; I will bring them back and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be My people and I will be their God in truth and righteousness’” Zechariah 8:7-8. The Lord did chastise them, after most Jews rejected Jesus and condemned Him to die, shouting to Pilate, “Let Him be crucified!” (Matthew 27:22). “And all the people answered and said, ‘His blood be upon us and our children’” Matthew 27:25. Nevertheless, Jesus said this, as He was dying on the cross: “Then said Jesus, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do;’ and they divided His garments and cast lots” Luke 23:34. The prophets Zechariah and Ezekiel prophesied that God will defend Israel in the last days during these two wars, the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38) and the Battle of Armageddon (Zechariah 14). “Christians” who believe God has totally cast off the Jews don’t even know the Word of God. God did something very special for the Jews, in fact, when He called Israel to observe certain feasts, holy convocations, throughout the year. These feasts are articulated in Leviticus 23, which brings me to the main focus of this month’s newsletter. I plan, God willing, to begin a series of newsletters regarding Israel’s feasts and how they all point to Yeshua (Jesus) and our salvation through Him. Jesus said to evangelize the Jews first, then He directed Paul to the Gentiles. It is my hope, in that the Newsletter is more widely viewed online throughout the nations (a translator is available), that I can reach Jews, as well as Gentiles, who will be able to see Yeshua ישוע (Jesus) HaMashiach (the Messiah) portrayed in Israel’s feasts. After the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, God called Moses to Him and told him to relate to the people that He commands them to observe The Sabbath, The Passover and Unleavened Bread, The Feast of Firstfruits, The Feast of Weeks, The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23). These all point to the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, and everything He taught in the New Testament.
“This image’s…feet were partly of iron and partly of clay” Daniel 2:32-33
As mentioned in last month’s newsletter, the last kingdom on earth, depicted as the feet of an image comprised of iron and clay (Daniel 2:32-33), has multiple implications that we can identify in these last days. In prior newsletters, I wrote about Muslim terrorists and their fury/strength, as they strike terror among the nations, bombing people and decapitating people, even little children! These acts take “nerves of steel,” as one might say. They are “incontinent” and “fierce,” as referred to in this prophetic text regarding the last days, “Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those who are good” 2 Timothy 3:1-3. Bear in mind that Muslims, simply by demographics, without war, given enough time, will outpopulate all other nationalities; it’s simply a matter of mathematics. Muslim nations comprise nearly half of the world’s landmass (see map above); but the clincher is their reproductivity, as compared to other nationalities and religious sects. Most civilized people don’t go around oppressing, suppressing and depressing others, or killing them violently just because someone else doesn’t share their religious beliefs. That is not the case with Islam. The Word tells us that the “antichrist” is one who says God has no Son, “Who is a liar, but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son” 1 John 2:22. This is a major clue given in the Word of God, as to who the antichrist is; “he who denies the Father and the Son.” The Qur’an says, “No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with him…” Sura 23:91. There are many other passages in the Qur’an which refute the fact that God has a Son, Jesus. The Qur’an teaches that Isa (Jesus) was a prophet. Descriptions of the antichrist all point to the Islamic Mahdi (messiah), whom Muslims believe is already in the world. Since Abraham’s promised heir, Isaac, was weaned, (Genesis 21), Ishmael and his descendants have warred against the “heirs of the promise” (Hebrews 6:17) to this very day. I have no doubt that the upcoming antichrist is a Muslim. Compared with other peoples of the world, “iron” seems to be a good depiction of Muslim terrorists. Interestingly enough, the President/Muslim dictator of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, campaigned in 2014 as a “hologram,” which no other political candidate has ever done (link to video of Erdogan’s hologram speech: https://youtu.be/2SoJuaM8img). Since Turkey is militarily the most powerful Muslim nation in the world, and since Erdogan fits the description of the upcoming antichrist, it is also significant that the Word tells us that the antichrist’s false prophet will cause the world to worship his “image,” which also “speaks:” “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed” Revelation 13:15. The Word certainly alludes to a time when artificial intelligence and imagery, such as holograms, are available, which leads me to the latest facet of the antichrist, the “beast.” “Part iron and part clay” can also allude to cyborgs, part machine and part human, which is also where we are technologically today. In fact, only days ago, headline news outlets reported, “Elon Musk Is About to Show Off His Neuralink Brain Implant:” https://www.wired.com/story/elon-musk-neuralink-brain-implant-v2-demo/. Neurologists believe that if implantable brain chips can help people control prosthetic arms, then they could also allow people to “thought type” without using a keyboard, or control their smart home devices without voicing a command. “A brain-computer interface could, in theory, unlock an entirely new way for humans to interact with the digital world.” The following video shows a paralyzed woman controlling a robotic arm with her mind: https://youtu.be/ogBX18maUiM. In fact, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) far surpasses any of this technology that is being published today, but that information is not released for “security” reasons. I dare say that it’s not released because black ops don’t want you to know how they plan to control and enslave you. I believe it was DARPA that flew, or shot, a winged microchip into my back on March 17, 2013, which didn’t fully penetrate my skin, but only halfway. I was able to reach behind my back and pull it out before it fully penetrated my skin. I don’t know if I would be living had their plot been successful, or perhaps their intention was only to monitor me, at least for a time. I have no doubt it could have turned deadly. When I placed it in water, the microchip dissolved, leaving only the wings behind. DARPA products are known to dissolve, disintegrate, or burn up, if they fall into the wrong hands. I wrote about this incident on April 1, 2013, on the Prophetic Newsletter website. The title of the article was RFID Micro-Bug, but it was removed by the server, Yola. I wrote another article about the same issue on July 23, 2015, titled RFID MICROBUG (https://propheticnewsletter.yolasite.com/news/rfid-microbug), which remains published. Perhaps they didn’t notice the second article, but since I pray for God’s hand of protection over the sites daily, I believe God preserved the work He called me to do for such a time as this.
“This image’s…feet were partly of iron and partly of clay” Daniel 2:32-33
I started a series on the final empire of the last days, the antichrist kingdom rising, back in February, but was diverted temporarily to write about the pandemic and some revelations I had concerning that for the last several months; albeit, I will continue with this study about the progressing antichrist kingdom, otherwise known as the “feet partly of iron and partly of clay” in the Book of Daniel (chapter 2). During the February study, I already noted that the depiction of iron mixed with clay represents strength among weakness. There are several facets to this last kingdom revealed to the Prophet Daniel, which we haven’t discussed yet, so my purpose is to begin looking at the parallels included in the depiction of the feet of iron mixed with clay, as they relate to the last earthly kingdom, preceding God’s Kingdom. Before I write further, we should be reminded that, according to the Laws of Hermeneutics (rabbinical laws of Biblical interpretation), scriptures referring to a topic are capable of multiple interpretations for the sake of furthering the truth and identifying prophecies. The law states, “A law operating in one situation will also be operative in another situation, if the text characterizes both situations in identical terms.” A good example I have found is located in Mark 9:36, 42: “And He took a child and set him in the midst of them, and when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them…Whoever offends one of these little ones who believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone be hanged about his neck and cast into the sea.” Jesus can be referring to children as “little ones,” and He can also be referring to His disciples that believe in Him as “little ones.” One interpretation has no more weight than the other, according to the Word of God. In Mark 9 it can be said that He is referring more to His disciples who believe in Him, because of the context of the scriptures surrounding His comment here. Nevertheless, equal weight can be given to children as being the “little ones,” because He is actually holding a child in His arms; and further, He said in another passage, “But when Jesus saw it (that His disciples forbid the little children to come to Him), He was much displeased, and said unto them, ‘Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God’” Mark 10:14. There is definitely equal weight to both meanings and what Jesus said can be interpreted both ways. Both interpretations expound on two truths, the fact that He loves His disciples, and He loves the little children (all little children under the age of accountability automatically enter heaven, if they depart this world as children). Now that this law of interpretation is clarified, I want to address the multiple components of the “partly of iron and partly of clay” kingdom of the last days. Iron mixed with clay also alludes to the advancement of biomechanical research, also known as cybernetic organisms, and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) with the human brain. This is more of a literal interpretation of the symbolism of iron mixed with clay, is it not? There are multiple similarities in the depiction of iron mixed with clay that we have already covered in past newsletters, such as the division of nations that are dictatorial and oppressive in governance, versus those nations that give their citizens at least a certain amount of freedom, as in Communism (fierce) versus Capitalism (passive). I have also written about the fact that Muslim nations comprise approximately half of the global continents; and at the rate Muslims (strong) are producing offspring, there is no question about the fact that they will, not maybe, they will outpopulate every other nationality (weak) on earth; it’s only a matter of time. This month, the Lord is leading me to focus on the progress of cybernetic organisms, or cyborgs. Definitions of cyborg include the following: a person who is part machine, a robot who is part organic, or a robot who has had an organic past; in other words, a robot who was previously a human being, but not anymore! There are secret experiments being conducted on humans and with aborted babies that would blow your mind, if you knew the details. An article was published on July 12, 2019, stating that Elon Musk’s Neuralink was planning their first brain chip implants for this year, 2020 (https://techcrunch.com/2019/07/12/elon-musk-backed-neuralink-to-detail-its-progress-on-upgrading-the-brain-to-keep-pace-with-ai/). News like this is antiquated, fed to the public just to keep the concept out there. Neuralink is a “startup” on the development of brain-computer interfaces, connecting minds to machines. Musk’s plan for the company is to “save the human race” by integrating nonliving components into living organisms, to the extent that eternal life is possible. This is the same lie satan fed Eve, “You will not surely die” Genesis 3:4. No one can give eternal life, except Almighty God. I wrote about Singularity cyborgs eight years ago (https://youtu.be/01hbkh4hXEk). The advancements are far greater than they will release to the public, because what they do is illegal (black ops). It is God’s will for us to know the future and that we not be ignorant of satan’s devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). Until next month, God willing.
“…in the latter days, you shall consider it perfectly” Jeremiah 23:20
The Lord brought me to a passage of scripture in Revelation 11, which I had never studied closely, “And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified…” Revelation 11:8. John is referring here to the death of God’s two witnesses, who are killed by the antichrist during the great tribulation. I hadn’t really noticed before that Jerusalem is referred to here as “Sodom and Egypt.” That statement, “the great city (Jerusalem), which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt,” implies that homosexuality will be prevalent, hence the name Sodom; and idolatry (idolizing deities, or placing anything else before God), the sins of Egypt, will also overtake Jerusalem in the last days. Historically, Chief Rabbis in Jerusalem have influenced about every aspect of life in Israel, from laws and social standards, to influencing Israel’s elections, until the two most recent elections. A few days ago, I read in the news that Benny Gantz agreed to alternate the position of Prime Minister with Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel. After two elections, the nation was still divided and unable to form a government, per se, so Prime Minister Netanyahu finally made a proposal to Benny Gantz that they share the Prime Minister’s office and alternate the position, until the next term. Gantz is scheduled to serve as Prime Minister starting November 17, 2021. This is a historical event, a “first” since 1948, when Israel became a nation again. This means that liberalism has exploded to the point that Israel is divided between religious/conservative and liberal Jews. Gantz is a loyalist, albeit, he is a very liberal patriot. For example, he intends to amend state law to include Israel minorities (Palestinians – Muslims), limit the powers of Chief Rabbis over marriage (he approves of gay marriage), expand healthcare (with the same Socialist-Communist ideology as the US) and he is pushing for early education (indoctrinating very young children)… This passage of scripture in Revelation refers to Jerusalem as Sodom, spiritually: “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city (Jerusalem), which spiritually is called Sodom (for their homosexuality) and Egypt (for their idolatry), where also our Lord was crucified” Revelation 11:8. Bible prophecy here clearly describes a liberal Jerusalem, given to homosexuality and idolatry, a great departure from the ways of God. This will be the latter days Jerusalem, and what do we see happening right now? For the first time since Israel became a nation again, they will have a liberal Prime Minister in 2021, unless the Lord defers it, which isn’t likely, given the day and hour in which we live. God will not ignore this; in fact, judgment has already begun. The world is in chaos, with the pandemic ongoing, and if you have seen any global weather reports recently, you will also know that Jeremiah’s prophecy of God’s wrath is taking place right now through storms pelting the earth. Record-breaking rains have flooded many nations throughout the world since last year and hundreds have died from these powerful storms. The Lord forewarned me it was going to happen and I wrote what God told me on the Signs and Wonders In Heaven and Earth website on March 27, 2019. Since that time, I have recorded 112 record-breaking storms throughout the world, and there are many I haven’t had time to include yet (https://signswonders.home.blog/2019/03/27/3-27-19-update/). In March 2020, what was termed as “Biblical floods” killed 21 people in Egypt and Israel, when a rare, perhaps never seen before, powerful cyclone hit the Middle East, ironically while negotiations were taking place about who should govern Israel (https://strangesounds.org/2020/03/biblical-floods-egypt-israel-video-march2020.html). The prophet Jeremiah wrote concerning the last days, “Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind; it shall fall grievously on the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, until He has executed, and until He has performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days, you shall consider it perfectly” Jeremiah 23:19-20. People always seem to believe that God isn’t watching, as they blatantly defy Him, His ways and His laws that He ordained for us. They believe they are going to live in defiance of God’s Word and get by with it somehow. The Word says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived, neither fornicators (unlawful sexual behavior), idolaters, adulterers, effeminate (men acting like women), abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals), thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. “If any man defiles the temple of God, God shall destroy him; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are” 1 Corinthians 3:17. All will stand alone before God in judgment (Revelation 20).
“Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences and fearful sights and there shall be great signs from heaven” Luke 21:11
Did you ever think you would wake up one morning to learn that people were dying by the hundreds, then the thousands, then the ten thousands; and while this is all happening, suddenly governors, or your dictator, depending on what nation you live in, issue a “lockdown” order, and you are told you can’t leave your home, except to purchase what is necessary, or drive to your place of employment, if allowed? I have actually been waiting for it, but most of the world is deeply shaken over what God already told us would happen millenniums ago. We, especially the saints, should be very knowledgeable of Bible prophecy; not only so we will be prepared for these last days, but so we can be quick to point out to everyone around us that the Word of God told us this would happen in the latter days. Jesus is quoted in the passage of scripture above (Luke 21:11), but the ancient prophets of old also forewarned us that if we departed from the laws of God, His will, His divine purpose; if we become rebellious, disobedient and forget about God, and rather follow our own desires, they already forewarned us to expect plagues, pestilence, earthquakes… The wrath of God is poured out on rebellious nations: “I will send the sword, famine and pestilence among them, until they are consumed from off the land that I gave to them and their fathers” Jeremiah 24:10. “…The hand of our God is upon all those for good, who seek Him; but His power and His wrath is against all those who forsake Him” Ezra 8:22. “He who believes on the Son (Jesus) has everlasting life; but he who believes not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” John 3:36. Is this despairing? Not for the saints of God, it isn’t. Those of us who know the Word understand that God already gave us many examples of His protection over the saints in the day of wrath. When Babylon carried the Israelis away captive, Jeremiah the Prophet, who had been thrown into a miry pit for warning Israel against the impending wrath of God for their disobedience, was brought up out of the pit and he dwelt in Judah, with the “poorest of the land” who were not taken captive; while those who ruled over Israel and cast Jeremiah into the pit were all carried away and enslaved (Jeremiah 38 – 40). Major earthquakes occur frequently throughout the world, every few days on average, even 7+ magnitude quakes, which major news media won’t report. The liberals understand that the saints will report Bible prophecy, and they don’t want to publicize it. I receive more spam against my websites about the earthquake stats and prophecies concerning them, than I do any other topic, besides Pizzagate (elite pedophiles and their global child trafficking). Africa, Asia, and other areas throughout the world, are suffering great famines, but the news media won’t report it, such as they did in the 70-80s, because they know it is a part of Bible prophecy. In fact, they have done away with the words “suffering hunger” and substituted them with “food insecurity,” “undernourishment” and “nutritional deficiency.” World Vision used to publish photos of severely malnourished people; now they only publish the photos of smiling people they have helped. The walking skeletons are still out there, you just aren’t allowed to see them, nor is their suffering published any longer. Many of those are left to die, because the focus of the World Health Organization now is “sustainable hunger solutions.” Sustainable hunger? Frankly, their perception of the crisis is the difference between those they consider to be salvageable, and those not worthy of their efforts; in other words, they are too far gone for help! The picture you see above on the far right is a photo of an ancient painting, a witness’s perception of a spacecraft sighted. Amazingly enough, this painting could nearly replicate what I see flying through the skies every evening since April 2018 (seeing in the spirit realm, which is the gift of discernment – 1 Corinthians 12:4-11). When Jesus said that preceding His return there would be “fearful sights and great signs from heaven” (Luke 21:11), He wasn’t joking. Since November 2018, I have seen the Morning Star (Revelation 2:28; Revelation 22:16), Who is also the great Day Star (2 Peter 1:19 – KJV), descend from high up in heaven, way down to about 50 feet from earth, first during the morning, and now during the evening holy convocations. When He arrives, small flames of fire appear periodically and they grow brighter, until they morph into a spacecraft. These are heavenly Watchers and they are as real as you and me. Hard to believe? Do you believe in God and that He is the Creator of all things by His spoken Word? “God said, let there be light, and there was light” Genesis 1:1. We need to study the Word, friends, and become well acquainted with Bible prophecy and spiritual things in this hour. Until next month, God willing.
“Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences; and fearful sights and there shall be great signs from heaven” Luke 21:11
Medical staff are referring to the coronavirus (COVID-19) as “the beast,” at least in some hospitals, according to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who gave an interview to their Global Town Hall during his “lockdown,” after being infected with the virus. He said he has had “hallucinations” and “phantasmic experiences, that aren’t dreams,” during his illness, likely all alluding to the satanic nature of this global pestilence. The Lord revealed to me this was a global pandemic before the World Health Organization announced it, and I also wrote about it on 2/6/20: https://nowprophecy.wordpress.com/2020/02/06/coronavirus-pandemic/ with a follow-up on 3/21/20: https://nowprophecy.wordpress.com/2020/03/21/coronavirus-covid-19-update/. In the meantime, at least 311 million people across the US, in at least 41 states, are on “lockdown” (as of 4/3/20). People have been ordered by governors to stay at home. Every nonessential laborer has been ordered not to work; but Planned Parenthood is still killing babies, even after they are born! Two thirds of those who go to hospitals with symptoms are not hospitalized, yet the nation is on lockdown. Certainly a lot of people have died from this last days plague (8,500+ as of 4/5/20 in the US), but does that give governors the right to dictate when people must leave their jobs and that businesses have to shut down? This is totalitarian governance, meaning they are dictating what people can and cannot do in basically all aspects of life. The liberal Democrats are using this pandemic to see just how far they can go with their Socialist-Communist tyranny. In fact, the liberal Democratic Governor of Kentucky Andy Beshear has gone so far as to concur with judges ordering ankle monitors on people diagnosed with coronavirus, even though 80 percent of those infected never suffer any life-threatening symptoms. Sure, the stimulus package recently passed increases in Unemployment Insurance Benefits, which is never equal to wages, but what about those who do not qualify for UIB? Some people haven’t worked enough over the preceding months to even qualify for UIB. “There are food banks,” is the Liberal-Socialist-Marxist-Leninist-Communist Democratic response, along with many Republicans now too. Food banks don’t pay the rent, purchase gas, or buy essential nonfood products. The package includes $1,200 for every adult. That $1,200 doesn’t pay most people’s rent or mortgage payments for one month, and it’s only a fraction of what the IRS steals from citizens every year for their useless spending! Yes, lenders are not foreclosing for now, and the government is giving loans to businesses, LOANS, which have to be paid back! This is culminating into a takeover, a totalitarian takeover. People could go to work and take the necessary precautions, rather than stay home and go bankrupt. This totalitarian governance is another link added to the dictatorial chain around everyone’s neck in America, which has been incremental over the years, so as not to alarm people with what is really happening. This will eventually develop into a global dictatorship, according to the Word of God, as foretold by the Prophet Daniel (Daniel 7) and John the Revelator (Revelation 13; 17), which are discerned and interpreted by the saints of God. This plague, and those forthcoming, will weaken the nations for the culmination of the global dictatorship of the antichrist, the “beast” kingdom and the “mark of the beast” (Revelation 13:16-18). The US, right now, is considering the Basic Income allowance, but they aren’t talking “free money;” there is something to be given back in return, but they haven’t disclosed that yet. Liberal Democrats pushing it are powermongers. They want control over all businesses, all the wealth; the trillions/billions they have already still isn’t enough: “Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied” Proverbs 27:20. “Love not the world, nor the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world; and the world passes away and the lust of it, but he who does the will of the Father abides forever” 1 John 2:15-17. Satan, along with the antichrist (last days dictator), the false prophet and the apostate churches of today, with all of his Liberal Luciferian Lunatic minions who are trying to take over the world, including the imps who are slaughtering the unborn and babies, while the rest of the nation is on lockdown, will prevail in the last days; but they will end up in hell forever, while the saints rule and reign with Christ (Revelation 20:4-6). The angel of the Lord told me on November 27, 2011, “With the sleight of hand, the nations will be turned upside down.” This isn’t even the final event yet, in that there will be more “pestilences,” not just one, and other catastrophic events coming soon: “Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences (see the stats on the Now Prophecy website) and fearful sights and there shall be great signs from heaven” Luke 21:11. One day soon, it will be too late to pray, repent and receive the Lord Jesus as one’s Savior and escape eternal hell. Are you saved and ready to face eternity?
“As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be” Matthew 24:37
Last month I wrote about the last kingdom on earth preceding the Lord’s return, as prophesied by Daniel (Daniel 2). A fierce leader, with a demonic ability to deceive the nations (Revelation 19:20), will arise, and along with him, a mighty army (Daniel 2:40; Revelation 13:4) and the false prophet (Revelation 16:13). I believe God has revealed to Bible scholars that the antichrist will come forth from the Muslim faith. Muslims do not believe in the deity of Jesus, nor do they believe He is the Son of God, hence the word “anti-Christ.” This occult fits the description of the last days antichrist kingdom in many ways. Their fighters are among the most ruthless and abominable ever known in modern history. Any militant group that can take a young girl, lay her out on a frame saw and saw her to pieces alive because she “insulted Muhammad,” has to be of the satanic antichrist kingdom of this last generation; but there are many more reasons. The fact that giants inhabit the Middle East, within Muslim nations, who have six fingers and six toes on both feet and hands, is not coincidence. The giants of Biblical history also had six digits on each hand and foot. These giants, according to Genesis 6:4, and the Book of Enoch – Book 1 – Watchers, are the offspring of fallen angels, “sons of God” (“beni Elohim” – Hebrew), and the “daughters of men.” Before you read any further, I will ask you to watch the following videos on You Tube, in the order they are written here:
Our military men, who provided testimonies in the second video, are not making this stuff up. The reason they spoke anonymously is they have not only been informed by their superiors that the facts they know to be true are “classified,” but they are afraid to reveal their identities for fear of retribution. The secrecy behind this type of information goes beyond the military. They have the same fears that Dr Rima Laibow had when she fled the United States, after one of her patients, a “head of state,” confided to her about their impending plans to “cull” the populations through vaccines. Former Governor of Minnesota Jessie Ventura interviewed Dr Laibow on his TV program, Conspiracy Theory, before the network cut his show. The spirit of antichrist is working through many liberal legislators, television networks, technology moguls and other top business professionals; they are allied to effect a New World Order. Have you noticed that they are also very protective of Muslims? They have even gone so far as to initiate the study of the Five Pillars of Islam in public schools, when they have long ago kicked the Christian God, prayer and the Bible out of American schools! It should be very obvious to everyone just how far satan’s agenda has developed. Some Bible scholars are looking for certain prophetic signs to come to pass before they will believe the return of the Lord is imminent. The angel of the Lord told me on November 27, 2011, “With the sleight of hand, the nations will be turned upside down.” While Christians are looking for future signs, it will take only one major catastrophic event to topple the status quo of this world. Right now, every major Democracy in the world, the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom, are basically nonfunctional. The Liberal-Progressive-Socialist-Marxist-Communists have been trying to impeach President Trump; Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can’t formulate a government because there is so much political division; and the UK is divided over Brexit. Most other nations are Socialist, Communist and Dictatorships. Think about that. The photos above include bizarre skulls, one (L) located at a museum in Peru; the other’s (R) whereabouts are unknown. Many such skeletons and artifacts have been confiscated by governments, purchased by the Smithsonian, and then are never heard of again. What will the Luciferian black ops do otherwise, admit they are teaching your children a bogus Darwinian evolution, and ostracizing anyone who believes in God, without a cause? I have a book written by Fritz Zimmerman, The Encyclopedia of Ancient Giants In North America, that would blow all of their lies about evolution straight to hell, right where they are headed, if they don’t repent! In spite of their deliberate deceptions and cover-ups, there have always been a few who preserve the truth, by the grace of God. The skull on the right (above) displays two rows of upper and lower teeth that are very sharp and cranial structures for six eyes! The offspring of satan’s angels were real, and they still exist in the world today, at least in caves and underground. Be prepared, saints, the Lord could return anytime. God bless you.

“This image’s…feet were partly of iron and partly of clay” Daniel 2:32-33
King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a very prophetic dream, which the prophet Daniel interpreted by a revelation from God (Daniel 2). Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a great image made of five substances, gold, silver, brass, iron, and iron mixed with clay. Each one represented a future powerful kingdom, starting with Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom, Babylon. The Babylonian kingdom was rich with gold, thus the image’s head was made of gold; the Medo-Persian kingdom was rich with silver, which was represented by the silver arms and chest of the image; the Grecian Empire was rich in brass, which was depicted by the image’s thighs of brass; the Roman empire’s metal was iron, hence the image’s legs of iron; the last kingdom of mankind on earth was represented by the feet of iron and clay; then Nebuchadnezzar saw a stone land on the feet of the image and break it to powder. That stone represented Jesus. King David prophesied, “The Stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Cornerstone (speaking of Jesus, His rejection/crucifixion and His Kingship)” Psalm 118:22. Jesus said of Himself, “Have you not even read this scripture: ‘The Stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Cornerstone?’” Mark 12:10. The feet and ten toes of the image were mixed with iron and clay, and the prophet Daniel provided more information about the last kingdom in existence when the Lord returns: “And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, and the strength of iron shall be in it; forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, and as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay” Daniel 2:41-43. This scripture is self-explanatory; the last kingdom will be partly strong, partly weak, hence iron mixed with clay, but there is more to the interpretation, which Daniel does not detail. He said, “…they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men…” verse 43. Who are “they?” They are obviously not men, because they mingle themselves with the “seed” (offspring) of men, so “they” are not men. These are fallen angels, and they are extremely strong, fitting the description of the “iron” mixed with “clay” (men). Jesus said, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man (Jesus-Himself) be” Matthew 24:37. Genesis 6:1-7 gives a brief mention of the giants (“men of renown”) that were born in the days of Noah; but the Book of Enoch – Book 1 – Watchers expounds greatly on what was happening at the time of Noah, before the flood (Genesis 6). By the way, a quote from the Book of Enoch – Book 1 – Watchers 1:9 is mentioned in Jude 1:14 of the canonized scriptures: “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints” Jude 1:14. The early church read from the Book of Enoch regularly, according to historians, and it is as good as canon; nothing in it contradicts the canonized scriptures, but rather provides greater detail. The fallen angels in Noah’s day, according to Enoch, were not only marrying human wives, but they fathered giants, who “devoured mankind.” In the photos above, we first see the iron feet and toes mixed with clay, which depicts the last kingdom of man on earth, a kingdom mixed with supernatural strength and human frailty (nephilim [fallen angels] and humans); then we see 21 Coptic Christians being led along the coast to be beheaded by ISIS fighters (giant men); and last, two other photos of Middle Eastern men, who are also great in stature. I have more photos, but lack the space to display them here. I don’t find it coincidental that many Muslims are very tall, and giants have been found living in caves in the Middle East, not in society. Steve Quayle first published the story of US military men who testified to him that they killed a 15-foot giant living in a cave in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The giant had six fingers and six toes on his hands and feet (Biblical giants had this trait also, 2 Samuel 21:20). Demographics alone tell us that Muslims will outnumber all other people on the earth within a number of years. Muslim countries cover nearly half the earth now. This is not coincidence, but in line with Bible prophecy. I have more to share on this series next month, God willing. God bless you.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world…” 1 John 2:15
I will start by saying, Happy New Year to everyone in Christ Jesus, for He truly is our joy, strength and hope, as we continue to live in this ever increasingly evil and wretched world, which is another fulfillment of prophecy. Jesus said, “Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold” Matthew 24:12. It is despairing to see state after liberal Democratic state institute laws that permit infanticide, the literal slaughter of babies after they are born, torture, the murder of babies, legalized by satanic liberals! This too is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy: “This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come, for men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION…” 2 Timothy 3:1-3. To further the abomination, Planned Parenthood has been caught selling these babies for experimentation, and their body parts, piece by piece. In the meantime, legislators are defending Planned Parenthood, and a jury recently ordered the Christian investigator, David Daleiden, to pay Planned Parenthood $870,000 for exposing their sales of aborted baby body parts! The California jury determined that Daleiden “caused substantial harm to Planned Parenthood” for his undercover investigation of their illegal sales of baby body parts! (https://www.lifenews.com/2019/11/15/jury-forces-david-daleiden-to-pay-planned-parenthood-870000-for-exposing-its-aborted-baby-part-sales/) Universities are even promoting the “abortion” of five-year-old children! (https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/some-college-students-approve-after-birth-abortion-age-5). One professor promotes in his classroom that parents should be able to “abort” their children to the age of six! People all over the United States, even Christians, send their teens off to college, but they are clueless as to why they have no interest in returning to church after graduation. People are sending their children to public schools, even Christians, and they don’t have a clue that their children are being taught, as young as eight, explicit, X-rated sex acts! (Explicit homosexual acts taught to 5th graders: https://rt.com/usa/206311-chicago-5thgraders-sex-ed-anal/; Female teachers strip before elementary school students, National Education Association [NEA] defends teachers’ actions: https://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/34194/female-teachers-strip-during-sex-ed-class/; Planned Parenthood shows pornographic, X-rated materials to elementary school children: https://www.christianpost.com/news/planned-parenthood-images-too-graphic-for-new-york-times-washington-post-95081/) Contrarily, in August 2019, President Trump defunded Planned Parenthood nearly $60 million in taxpayer money! The Liberal Luciferian Lunatics (LLL Democrats), including some liberal Republicans, in turn, have launched an impeachment hearing against President Trump. President Trump has lifted up the name of God before the nations of the world, unlike any other president we have ever seen in our time, and perhaps throughout American history; yet, the more President Trump tries to eliminate Planned Parenthood’s criminality, secure our borders to keep out Muslim terrorists, drug runners and massive/destructive illegal immigration; and while he does everything in his power to stop the horrifying slaughter of babies; while he has tried to help small businesses and our economy survive; all the more these devil worshipers (if not literally, by their deeds) work fiendishly to remove the president from power, some even calling publicly for his assassination! (https://libertyonenews.com/dem-trumps-assassination/) When have we ever seen such mayhem? Starting out in 2020, I am heading back into prophetic messages because the truth is, we are living in the very last days and there is little time to stir our hearts to get ready and admonish loved ones, who might be sleeping, or are dead, spiritually, that they need to wake up and prepare. Time is running out! The five virgins spoken of by Jesus in His parable about the 10 virgins, who were left behind, were not left behind because they didn’t believe in Jesus; they were left behind because they were not prepared for His return! Read the story (Matthew 25). They were all virgins (church members, so to speak), but five didn’t have oil, the Holy Spirit. The other five virgins, who were ready when the “Bridegroom” (Jesus) came, had oil in their lamps; they were filled with the Holy Spirit and “watching and waiting” for Him. Jesus said, “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord shall find watching when He comes. Truly I say to you, He shall gird Himself and make them (His faithful servants) to sit down to dine and He will come forth and serve them” Luke 12:37. There is far too much at risk to be lured into complacency and spiritual blindness by the world today. Jesus also said, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” 1 John 2:15. Evil communications corrupt (1 Corinthians 15:33).
“Bethlehem…out of you He shall come…Who is to be Ruler in Israel…” Micah 5:2
This being the month of Christmas, instead of continuing to write about prophecies that will be fulfilled in the last days, I will divert to prophecies that have already been fulfilled concerning the birth and life of our Blessed Savior. Micah prophesied: “Now gather yourself in troops, oh daughter of troops; he has laid siege against us (the enemy, Rome, would lay siege in 70 AD); they shall smite the Judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek (Christ was rejected and smitten [Matthew 27:30]); but you, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little (a small city) among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth unto Me Him Who shall be Ruler in Israel, Whose going forth has been from old, from everlasting (speaks of His deity). Therefore, He will give them up (to Rome), until the time that she (Israel), which travails (during the Holocaust), has brought forth (those who survived the Holocaust and returned to Israel), then the remnant of His brethren (the Jews) shall return unto the children of Israel (there were some Jews that sold their properties, hid in Judea and returned to Israel after the Roman siege, pursuant to the Lord’s warning before He ascended [Luke 21:20-24]); and he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God, and they (Israel) shall abide, for now shall He be great unto the ends of the earth” Micah 5:1-4. Most people focus on Micah 5:2, concerning Christ’s birthplace, but the entire chapter is prophetic and, as you can see, just the first four verses are power-packed with prophecy, which spans from the birth of Christ to His return in the last days. In fact, according to The Encyclopedia of Bible Prophecy by J Barton Payne, there are 1,239 prophecies in the Old Testament, and 578 in the New Testament, for a total of 1,817 prophecies, which are noticeable when you read the Word in its entirety. The Prophet Isaiah is most noted for his prophecies about the coming Messiah: “Who has believed our report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed (Who will believe our prophecies; to whom is the Christ revealed)? He (Christ) shall grow up before Him (the Father) as a tender plant and as a root out of a dry ground (Nathanael said, when he was told about Christ, ‘Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?’); He has no form nor comeliness (He was not outstanding or handsome), and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him (He will not be appealing [Matthew 13:53-57]). He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and we hid, as it were, our faces from Him (the Apostles forsook Him, as He was arrested [Matthew 26:56]); He was despised and we esteemed Him not (the Jews rejected Him and condemned Him to die [Matthew 26:64-66]). Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted (He was ridiculed by the Jews as He hung on the cross [Matthew 27:39-43); but He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed (the flogging He bore brought healing to us [Matthew 27:26]). All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned, everyone, to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all (He was crucified to bear our sins, so we can be set free from sin [1 Peter 2:24]). He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter (John 1:29) and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He did not open His mouth (Jesus did not answer Pilate at His judgment – Matthew 27:13-14). He was taken from prison and judgment and who shall declare His generation? For He was cut off out of the land of the living, for the transgression of My people He was stricken. He made His grave with the wicked and with the rich in His death (Jesus was buried in a rich man’s tomb – Mark 15:43-46), because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth” Isaiah 53:1-9. The probability of these prophecies having been fulfilled, in the manner in which they have been fulfilled, is so astronomical that I am not able to actually count that far. Peter Stoner was chairman of the mathematics and astronomy departments at Pasadena City College, until 1953, when he moved to Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he served as chairman of the science division. At that time, he wrote a book titled Science Speaks, while working as professor emeritus of science at Westmont. To give you just one example of his calculations, he estimated (his most conservative estimate) that for the Prophet Micah to have accurately written that Christ would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) is 7,150/2,000,000,000 or 2.8×105. Stoner took just eight prophecies from the scriptures and when he calculated the probability of all being fulfilled, he stated the probability is 1017 or 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000; that is one in one hundred quadrillion!

“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 13
Over the last 12 months, I have written about the coming of the last antichrist, and how the false prophet, who rises to world power with the antichrist, will institute a global currency and cause everyone to receive a mark on their right hand, or forehead, in order to buy or sell (Revelation 13:16-18). A person can refuse to receive the mark, but they will be beheaded (Revelation 20:4), whether or not the consequences are revealed at the time of choice. In line with Bible prophecy, the RFID, and other forms of identification, such as an invisible tattoo, have been discussed by world leaders. A plan was even instituted within the Affordable Care Act (Obama[don’t]Care) legislation for everyone to receive an RFID chip; but due to public outcry, the bill was rewritten. It does still carry information about the “implantable device” for those who receive it for “medical identification purposes.” I’ll tell you right up front that those who receive it under this fraudulent “healthcare” act could very well be receiving “the mark” preceding the appearance of the antichrist himself. The Word of God doesn’t tell us that it will only be presented to the public after the antichrist and false prophet appear. Satan is the master of deception and fraud, is he not? Isn’t it just like the devil and his cohorts to present the “mark of the beast” as some sort of medical identification “for your convenience;” which, by the way, can also be used at a later time for your financial convenience to purchase and sell products globally. Had the “mark” been instituted through the “healthcare” bill (not to say that it hasn’t already been instituted through that legislation), wouldn’t it be just like the devil to get you to receive it under that presumption, then notify you later that you will be using it to buy and sell? Do you think for one minute that the devil and his cohorts have to tell you the truth? The people of God need to already know that anything that bears any type of resemblance whatsoever to an identifying mark placed in or on their bodies can very well be the mark of the beast! I heard a minister preaching one Sunday morning and he spoke to his congregation about this advancement and he said they want us all to get it to make purchases. I was shocked when he never uttered a word of warning to the congregation. I spoke to him later about his message and suggested that this could be the “mark of the beast” and it is so much identical to the “mark” that I would never receive it. His response was, “You won’t be able to purchase anything then.” I was further astonished to realize that he apparently had never studied the Book of Revelation, more specifically chapter 13, or he had forgotten everything he learned! This pastor of God’s people not only didn’t have a clue to the dire danger presented to him, but he failed to warn a church full of people that morning! America has already come very close to the “mark” legislation in our day. Obviously, there was no provision for beheading those who refused it, but that mandate doesn’t even have to be instituted at the same time the “sheeple” line up to get their RFID chips, invisible tattoos, or whatever kind of mark it turns out to be. In fact, it might even be a culmination of various kinds of marks people already have for other purposes, for medical identification, or to enter a secure area of your job… People are even receiving RFID chips to lock/open the doors to their homes, their cars and secure their personal computers! When the Word of God tells us that the false prophet will mandate everyone to receive a “mark,” that doesn’t mean a lot of people won’t already have them for what they believe are other reasons. The point I am making here is that if it looks like the “mark,” feels like the “mark,” or has any kind of resemblance to the “mark,” DON’T RECEIVE IT! If you do, the Word of God tells us you have no hope of salvation: “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worships the beast and his image (this requirement of worship could come later, after receiving the “mark”) AND RECEIVES HIS MARK ON HIS FOREHEAD, OR ON HIS RIGHT HAND, THE SAME SHALL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD, WHICH IS POURED OUT WITHOUT MIXTURE INTO THE CUP OF HIS INDIGNATION, AND HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE BRIMSTONE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY ANGELS AND IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LAMB, AND THE SMOKE OF THEIR TORMENT ASCENDS UP FOREVER AND EVER, AND THEY WILL HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT WHO WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVES THE MARK OF HIS NAME” Revelation 14:9-11. Please, whatever you do, make it a point to tell your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, your relatives, your neighbors, whenever you have an opportunity, as soon as you can, warn your loved ones about this great deception that’s already among us!
Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
“The Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him who hears say, Come; and let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17

“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 12
Last month, I wrote about satan’s great plan of deception in the last days, culminating with the appearance of the antichrist and false prophet (Revelation 13), who will literally cause fire to come down from heaven (v. 13-14). People are spooked by the supernatural and most don’t really believe it exists, although many are quick to say they believe in an invisible God! As we draw nearer to the Lord’s return, everyone will begin to experience the supernatural, whether they believe it or not. Aside from the fact that UFO (reported) sightings exceeded 8,000 in the US in 2014 (UFORA), the Navy also recently admitted there are UFOs that cannot be explained and their pilots see them frequently (https://www.newsweek.com/ufo-sightings-2019-us-military-tic-tac-pentagon-navy-unidentified-aerial-1412272). They move faster than any known craft and stop on a dime; they have no engine noise/thrust. These reports further substantiate what Colonel Philip J Corso, former Chief of the Army’s Foreign Technology Division (FTD) at the Pentagon, stated publicly on Coast to Coast Radio, during his interview with Art Bell (https://youtu.be/1Uv9DIkM7K0). He said scientists found that the navigation system of the advanced UFO craft was “in the creatures.” This fits exactly with Ezekiel’s description of how the living creatures moved, which he saw carrying the throne of God: “Wherever the Spirit went, they (the wheels [the space craft]) went, because that’s where the Spirit went; and the wheels were lifted up over them (the creatures were inside the wheels – craft), for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. When those went (the spirit of the creatures), these went (the wheels); and when those stood (stood still), these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them, for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels” Ezekiel 1:20-21. Is that coincidence? Not on your life. The same living creatures that Ezekiel saw thousands of years ago, are the same living creatures people are seeing today. They have been manifesting more frequently since the Roswell Crash. The Roswell crash occurred in 1947. It was, in fact, in 1947 that the United Nations voted to establish a nation for the Jewish people. (It was later, on May 14, 1948, that David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister, announced to the world that the Jewish nation of Israel was established and official.) I can tell you that satan launched a counter attack of that UN resolution in 1947, by purposefully causing a (fallen angel) craft to crash. According to Corso, beings were in the craft that crashed in Roswell, and at least one was dead (a satanic being that inhabited a created body, much like an avatar), and according to some reputable testimonies, another “alien” survived and has been teaching advanced technology to US aviation scientists. Is it coincidence that since the 1947 crash, aviation technology has skyrocketed? Since many in the upper echelons of society and government already believe in an “alien” god, we might already know, with close accuracy, just how satan will “deceive the nations” in the last days (Revelation 20:1-3). There is a theology in the world that says aliens placed life on the earth and they have monitored our existence. They actually believe aliens are our “gods.” A scholar from ETH Zurich stated, “Mathematical/statistical analyses of the probability of earth life having been seeded by Martian life has been presented by P.C.W. Davies of the Australian Center for Astrobiology, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, and others.” This religion exists among some top scholars and scientists. Jesus said, “Except those days (the latter days-end times) should be shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days will be shortened. Then if any man says to you, Behold, here is Christ, or there, don’t believe it; for false Christs shall arise, and false prophets, and they will show great signs and wonders, so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:22-24. I can tell you from first hand experience that satan “transforms himself into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). We are now seeing government officials admit that UFOs are real. Millions around the world have awaited this disclosure because of what they are already seeing in the skies above. You heard it from Jesus, through the scripture quoted above, that it will be a time of deception like no one has ever seen, so much so that the days will have to be shortened, or none of us would be saved! Now is the time to know God’s Holy Word – The Truth – and to be greatly prepared for what’s coming; otherwise, you will indeed be deceived. There will be no sliding in by “the skin of your teeth.” You are either 100 percent sold out to God, or you are satan’s prime target today! Jesus said even the very elect of God’s people would be deceived, if He doesn’t shorten our days on earth. He will come for His people to make certain they aren’t deceived, but wishy-washy “saints” won’t be among them. He is coming for a spotless bride (Ephesians 5:27), one not entangled with the world (1 John 2:15)!
Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 11
In this series of Newsletters, I have been writing about the great deception that is coming upon the entire earth, according to Bible prophecy, through the “man of sin” (2 Thessalonians 2:3), also referred to as the “antichrist:” “Even him, whose coming is after the working of satan, with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10. Satan has, from the time of his fall (before recorded Biblical history, according to Genesis 3, in that he beguiled Eve), tried to imitate the power of God, even to the point of attempting to dethrone God Himself. The Prophet Isaiah wrote about satan, “How you are fallen from heaven, oh Lucifer (same as satan), son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who did weaken the nations! For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven; I will exalt my throne (satan rules over one-third of the heavenly host that fell and were cast out of heaven with him [Revelation 12:4]) above the stars (these stars are God’s angels [Revelation 1:20]) of God; I will also sit upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north (location of God’s throne in the third heaven). I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High” Isaiah 14:12-14. In order to deceive the nations in the last days, he will raise up a false Christ, one who will be perceived by most as the Messiah. The Word tells us that satan will give this false Christ “power:” “And they (the nations) worshiped the dragon (who is satan [Revelation 12:7]), who gave power to the beast (the final antichrist [2 Thessalonians 2:3; 1 John 2:18]), and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him? And he was given a mouth to speak great things and blasphemies, and power was given to him to continue forty-two months (he will rule during the last three and a-half years of the seven-year tribulation, forty-two months)” Revelation 13:4-5. Even though the last antichrist will not come to full power until the last half of the great tribulation (Matthew 24:21), the spirit of antichrist is already working in wicked rulers today, as we saw in Adolf Hitler, Jozef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Barack Hussein Obama (Muslims who say, God has no Son, all have the spirit of antichrist working in them [1 John 2:22]). The last and final antichrist will, again, be another one of satan’s deceptions, the ultimate deception. Satan imitates the appearance of the Holy Ghost: “Wine is a mocker (a mocker of what?)…” Proverbs 20:1. The Bible actually tells us what wine mocks: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues (in different languages), as the Spirit gave them utterance…And they (onlookers) were all amazed and were in doubt, saying one to another, What does this mean? Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine” Acts 2:4; 2:12-13. It is apparent that those who gathered in the upper room were not only speaking in different languages, but they were weak in their knees, feeling woozy; otherwise, why would mockers accuse them of being drunk? Satan not only wants to dethrone God, but he has a replica for the Holy Ghost, wine and drugs; he has a replica of Jesus Christ, who is the final antichrist, who will deceive the nations (Isaiah 14:12; Revelation 20:2-3; 20:7-8). The Word of God tells us that satan presents himself as an “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), and I can tell you first hand that he definitely presents himself as an “angel of light.” I have seen not only the one I wrote about last month, but since that time, others have recently presented themselves, but God has given me the grace to know who they are, and to not confuse them with the Lord’s angels. I asked God for a certain indicator, which satan doesn’t know about, and the Lord has given me that sign when they appear. They want to present themselves as angels of God, so that perhaps I would receive them as such! God has given me the ability to see in the Spiritual realm continuously since April 2018. I have had visions from God in recent years, but since April 2018, I have seen spiritual beings, mostly benevolent, almost daily; and since November 29, 2018, I have seen them on a daily basis. I have kept daily chronological reports of these events, and there are reasons why the Lord has granted me this discernment, so I can impart this information to others, if they will receive it, and warn people that His return is near! The Lord is showing me “signs in heaven,” which He said would happen in the last days: “And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11. God bless you.
“…he does great wonders and causes fire to come down from heaven on earth” Revelation 13:13 – Part 10
I left off last month disclosing some profound information to the recipients of this newsletter, as led of the Spirit, because of the hour in which we live. Some of you, or perhaps all of you, may have been taken aback by the information I shared last month. Albeit, if we say we believe in God, but are hesitant to believe, or are not believing, in the Spiritual realm, we need to examine our hearts to determine if we truly believe in the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God, Creator of all things – by His spoken Word *(Genesis 1). With that said, I will continue. First, I have no idea why God has chosen me to “see in the Spirit” and understand some of the mysteries He has revealed to me. The only thing that comes to mind is unmerited favor. I do love His Word and I have spent years writing it out, Word for Word, and that’s how I study it, because it “sticks” better that way. I have written the Bible by hand, as well as two and three copies of some books, the Major and Minor Prophets and Revelation. I also spend a good amount of time in prayer at the start of my day, which apparently makes a difference with God. It might have also helped that I have prayed for the “gifts of the Spirit” and “charity” (1 Corinthians 12-13) every day for years. I share these things not to boast, but to encourage anyone who desires a closer walk with the Lord, especially the need to start the day in prayer, giving Him the “first fruits” of your life. “God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34), although He does respond to prayer and worship (Jeremiah 29:13; Psalm 22:3). Last month, I said I would tell you about my encounter with one of the malevolent angels that fell with satan (Isaiah 14:12-15; Revelation 12:9). I can tell you first hand about the great deception that is coming, because I came very close to being deceived myself at one point, had the Holy Spirit not given me an immediate ability to discern an evil spirit (1 Corinthians 12:10) that cloaked himself as “an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). I have been observing God’s creative power since April 2018, and I frequently see “watchers” (Daniel 4:13) that fly in the vicinity. I have seen so many here that I assumed they were all benevolent and from the Lord. Actually, after I observed the first watchers manifesting right before my eyes in April 2018, the first thing I did was pray and ask the Lord if what I saw was of Him, or a deception. The Lord’s response, by way of responding to my “fleece” (Judges 6:36-37), was that the miracles I observed were from Him. I was in awe of what the Lord was showing me and His confirmation that the things I saw were truly from Him. I had a great lesson to learn shortly thereafter, because I didn’t consider that satan would try to usurp my attention to his own deception. In the meantime, I had been praying that God would cast evil spirits out of a nearby public school that is visible from my home, because in the Spirit, I have seen fire coming up from the roof of that school. One day, a great flame of fire stood in front of the school and I immediately assumed that God sent His mighty archangel to cast out the stronghold (2 Corinthians 10:4; Ephesians 6:12) of evil spirits there. I laugh at myself now, because I even waved hello, believing it to be from God, as so many others were. Bear in mind, that none of the heavenly angels God sends here ever approach me, or come near the windows where I observe them. As I watched this great flame of fire (bigger than most of the watchers God has placed here), it suddenly began to move away from the school and head straight toward me. I immediately felt just a bit uneasy, because none of the other watchers have ever done this, and I was very accustomed to seeing them at this point in time. As it moved closer and closer, it suddenly morphed into a dark black craft with red lights, which looked nothing like the watchers I had ever seen so far! I immediately began to call on God and I moved to the side of the window, behind the blinds. After I asked God to cover me with the “blood of Jesus” (no evil can surpass the blood of Jesus; this prayer stops the devil every time!), I looked between the blinds to see the evil craft pass very close to my window, but go up and over the roof of the house! I escaped this encounter (there is a bit more to the story, but I will stop here for lack of space), but I learned a valuable lesson and a reminder. Satan’s purpose is to always usurp the things of God and lay an extremely deceptive trap for God’s people; and he comes close to the real thing, more than we can imagine. In fact, the only way we can avoid his deceptions concerning many aspects of life is to draw very close to the Lord, to know His Word and pray for the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2) and the “gifts of the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). Saints, do you know how very blessed we are to know the importance of reading God’s Holy Word and to know the TRUTH today? Many in this world are deceived (Galatians 1:8), “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine…they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth…” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
“…he does great wonders and causes fire to come down from heaven on earth” Revelation 13:13 – Part 9
In recent months, I have written about the antichrist, who will appear in power in these last days, and I have written about signs and wonders that the Word tells us will manifest at the end of days, as we know them. I especially need to focus more attention on the great deception that will take place in the last days. In May of this year, news sources published an article about Navy fighter pilots reporting UFO sightings during their training off the East Coast. The pilots said the UFOs performed maneuvers that were “beyond the physical limits of a human crew.” They also reported the UFOs they saw in 2014 and 2015 lacked any visible engines, they showed no exhaust and “they traveled at supersonic speeds, while making instantaneous turns.” Lieutenant Ryan Graves said, “These things would be out there all day” (probably laughing at their [the Navy’s] antiquated aircraft akin to sputtering piston-powered Cessnas, compared to their technology). A Navy spokesman, Joseph Gradisher, suggested that the UFOs could have been “commercial drones” (https://www.iheart.com/content/2019-05-28-navy-pilots-reported-multiple-ufo-sightings-off-the-east-coast/). Hold it; let’s stop right there! The Navy is doing the same thing government officials have done for decades regarding the truth of Creation. They don’t want you to believe in God, or His ability to create; in fact, they don’t want you to believe it with such ferocity that they literally hide, or destroy, the bones of giants and horned skulls, with double rows of pointed teeth, which validate the Bible’s account of the existence of giants and fallen angels (Genesis 6; Book of Enoch – Book 1 – Watchers). One only need ask one’s self how anyone could crate a “drone” that far surpasses the capabilities of NASA scientists, who have been reverse engineering technologically advanced aircraft since the Roswell incident in 1947; plus beat all the capabilities of other nations that we have seen to date! NASA doesn’t know it yet, but these UFOs are created by a flame of fire (the power of God), which literally morphs into the advanced craft many people are now observing. They will never replicate the craft, because they are supernatural and interdimensional. These reports of UFO sightings by Navy fighter pilots were only recently declassified and published in May 2019. After I read that report, the Lord pressed upon my heart to “declassify” some of the miraculous things He has shown me during the past year, because it’s time. Before I reveal some of the things I am about to disclose, just remember that the Word of God tells us that in the last days the Lord will show us wonders in heaven: “And I (God) will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath, blood, fire and vapor of smoke (volcanic eruptions)” Acts 2:19. During the first week of April 2018, I looked out my window and saw a fireball, which developed into a spacecraft before my eyes. I had seen such craft flying on a few occasions at much greater distances, but this was something very spectacular, happening only about 200–250 feet away. This craft, that was literally created from only a flame of fire by the creative power of God, flew off into the distance. Within a few minutes, another fireball appeared and within a few more minutes, it too morphed into a spacecraft and flew away. I see these frequently now, since April 2018. There was a time when I believed all such craft were of the fallen angels, but since I have seen many fly frequently around my property, appearing almost daily, I have discerned these are present as guardian watchers. There is a Biblical account for this scenario and it is found in II Kings 6. The King of Syria sent a host to capture the Prophet Elisha, because God was showing Elisha all the king’s strategies against Israel, and the King of Israel was able thereby to escape the hands of the King of Syria. When the king’s host arrived to capture Elisha, the prophet’s servant was very upset; but Elisha told him not to worry, because “there are more with us than those that are with them.” Then Elisha prayed that God would open the eyes of his servant, so he could see what Elisha could see in the Spirit, and when the servant’s eyes were opened, he saw that “the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha” II Kings 6:17. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” Hebrews 13:8. What the Lord did for Elisha, He is still doing for His servants today. I found that these craft had come to protect me too; but there is another sort that I have encountered since last April that are evil and extremely deceptive, so deceptive, that without the Spirit of discernment to know the difference, one might just follow them right into hell! God willing, I will tell you about them next month.
“And there shall be signs…the sea and the waves roaring” Luke 21:25 – Part 8
Last month (May), I started working on the June newsletter and I had something entirely different planned, although the Lord suddenly switched the message to His message, not mine. I was doing some research for the newsletter I thought I would write, but the Lord apparently had different plans. My research brought me to an article that was off the subject, but interesting, so I read it. The article included a video link, so I watched the video too, and then the power of God hit me and I began to weep. I must write today about the tsunamis that are coming in these last days, because the Word of God tells us, “And there shall be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars, and distress of nations upon the earth, with perplexity, the sea and waves roaring” Luke 21:25. People who have heard tsunamis approaching say it has a “roaring” sound, like a jet, or train. The description of “waves roaring” in the above scripture is significant. I heard a message by Evangelist Perry Stone a number of years ago and he said he dreamed of a tsunami, which he felt may have been from God, but not being certain, he declined to say where the tsunami occurred at that time. Perry Stone produces and hosts Manna Fest, a weekly program on Christian TV about Bible prophecy. Perry saw the Twin Towers destruction, and he told people about it before it ever happened. He also saw the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the largest marine oil spill in history, before it ever happened, and he told people about it in advance. During the video I watched, Perry said that every few weeks, for more than a year, he dreamed of tsunamis hitting the east coast, and the west coast, so he knew then it was God’s will to reveal the locations. He said during one of his dreams, when a tsunami hit the west coast, he saw waves so high that buildings were under water. John Paul Jackson was a 21st Century prophet (the Lord took him in 2015). Years ago, he said the Lord showed him that Donald Trump would be president, for which he received much ridicule. He also said that the Lord showed him that tsunamis would hit the east coast, and the west coast (video excerpt of John Paul’s prophecy: https://youtu.be/P3lZfaHgQXE). John Paul also said that the west coast tsunami was so huge that he saw 8 to 10 story buildings under water. He said he believed the east coast tsunami reached South Carolina. In one of his recurring dreams, Perry Stone said he was right outside Charleston, South Carolina, and he saw an interstate sign on a bridge that said “Charleston,” before the tsunami hit. He saw the tsunami destroyed the bridge. He said he had never been to Charleston before his dream, but found out there is a connecting bridge to Charleston at that location (video of Perry Stone’s testimony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAq1NTM3Vvs). I have heard Perry Stone speak many times throughout the years. I have also heard John Paul Jackson speak numerous times on Day Star and You Tube. Both of these men are highly esteemed in the Christian community and neither one of them would fabricate this type of information. They were both telling the truth about what the Lord revealed to them. Before I came across Perry Stone’s more recent prophecy about the tsunamis (today), and John Paul Jackson’s identical prophecy about the tsunamis he saw (also today), the Lord recently showed me tidal waves on the west coast, and I published that information on the new website, Signs and Wonders In Heaven and Earth (https://signswonders.home.blog[see the 5/21/19 Update]). The waves I saw were so high they could have easily covered buildings. Jesus gave us specific instructions about establishing the truth of testimonies. He was actually speaking about a different subject, but the spiritual principle is the same: “If he will not hear you, then take with you one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established” Matthew 18:16. There is also another passage of scripture that is pertinent: “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety” Proverbs 11:14. Jesus’s statement to His disciples about the “sea and waves roaring” in the last days was a sure prophecy, or He wouldn’t have mentioned it. We are living in the last days, family and friends. The ancient prophecies that foretold the return of Israel as a nation in the last days was fulfilled in 1948 (Isaiah 66:8; Jeremiah 12:15, 24:6); and Bible prophecies foretelling that Jerusalem would again be under the jurisdiction of Jews (Ezekiel 38) was fulfilled also in our generation, during Israel’s Six Day War in 1967. Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled, and those given by established men of God in our generation, especially when the prophecies are given by “the mouth of two or three witnesses” (Matthew 18:16), will also come to pass. Those living at, or near, coastal areas, be warned. Jesus said the sea and waves will be “roaring” in these last days. Two credible men of God have also prophesied that tsunamis are coming!
“He who now restrains will do so, until he is taken out of the way” 2 Thessalonians 2:7 – Part 7
Have you noticed that every time the Progressive Globalists want to implement their Socialist-Communist (antichrist) policies, as in the RFID chip written into the Obama(don’t)care healthcare bill, the Evangelical Christians put up a major protest, until they are forced to back off? The Holy Spirit working through the saints of God is restraining the work of iniquity in the world today. The Word tells us, “The mystery of lawlessness is already at work, only He who now restrains will do so, until he is taken out of the way” 2 Thessalonians 2:7 NKJV. “And he (the antichrist) shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws, and they (those left behind, as in the five foolish virgins [Matthew 25] shall be given into his hand (to suffer persecution and martyrdom [Revelation 20:4], until a time (1 year) and times (two years) and the dividing of time (one-half year)” Daniel 7:25. The Word of God tells us that the antichrist will make a covenant, peace treaty, with Israel for one week (seven years) during the seven-year tribulation; so we know that this treaty will be signed at right about the same time that the saints are caught up out of the onset of the great tribulation. The Word also tells us, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (seven years) and in the midst of the week (three and a-half years) he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease (in the Temple of God)…” Daniel 9:27. The antichrist will take full power and break his peace agreement with Israel in the middle of the peace treaty. Before the mark of the beast can be implemented, the saints will have to be “taken out of the way.” The scriptures are very clear, before the great tribulation begins, we, who are ready, watching and waiting for His return, will be caught up to meet the Lord: “Come, My people, enter into your chambers and shut your doors about you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation (of His wrath) be overpast“ Isaiah 26:20. “For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:9. “For the wrath of God (that will fall upon the earth during the tribulation) is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness” Romans 1:18. “Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him” Romans 5:9. There are many passages of scriptures throughout the Word that reveal to us that we, the faithful saints, are not appointed to the wrath that will be poured out on the ungodly in the last days, but we will be caught up: “For the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout, with he voice of the archangel and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. The “mark of the beast” is underway even at this time. All of these prophecies will come to pass, just as hundreds of other Bible prophecies have already been fulfilled. I believe the most remarkable prophecy fulfilled to date is Daniel’s prophecy, revealing exactly what time in history the Messiah’s first coming would be, which was the day of Jesus’s Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem, and that he would die, but not for Himself (for our salvation) [Daniel 9:24-27]. The last “week” (seven years) of Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy, which is yet to come, will be the seven-year tribulation referred to in Daniel (Daniel 12), and described by John the Revelator (Book of Revelation). Another fascinating prophecy, among hundreds, is the prophecy that Cyrus would make a decree that the Jews could return to Jerusalem and rebuild the city and the temple. The prophecy was given by Isaiah 150 years before it was fulfilled, before Cyrus was ever born; Isaiah even prophesied his name! “Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you in the womb, I Am the Lord Who makes all things…Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd and he shall perform all My pleasure,’ even saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built,’ and to the Temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’” Isaiah 44:24,28. I could go on and on, but there isn’t enough space here. J Barton Payne’s Encyclopedia of Bible Prophecy lists 1,817 different prophecies, most of which have been fulfilled. There has never been a book written like the Bible, and there never shall be. The Word is living and powerful, and if we live a holy life before God, we have been given the keys to exercise the same power that flowed through Christ, being “joint heirs” with Him. “The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, and if children, heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together” Romans 8:16-17. Jesus said, “And I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:19. Until next month, God willing.
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 6
Last month, I wrote about some of the things that are leading up to a global cashless society in the last days, as foretold in Revelation 13:16-18, and other signs pointing to the Lord’s return. There are other major factors leading to the same conclusion, which I want to include in this month’s newsletter. Aaron Russo was a Hollywood producer who made such films as Trading Places, Wise Guys and The Rose, and he managed Bette Midler’s career. Russo ran for Governor of Nevada in 1998, and he was a close friend of Nicholas Rockefeller – for a time. From that friendship, Russo learned about conspiracies contrived by the megabanksters (Rockefellers, Goldman-Sachs, Rothschilds, Morgans…) and liberal powermongering politicians. Russo produced the documentaries Mad As Hell, and his last, before he died in 2007, America: Freedom to Fascism, wherein he revealed many things he learned from Rockefeller, which led to the end of their friendship and Russo’s ultimate dive into politics and reform. Alex Jones, publisher of Infowars and Prison Planet, interviewed Russo before his death. I will include a link here to a 12-minute excerpt of that interview, just to give you an idea of the content of Russo’s documentaries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gwcQjDhZtI. He disclosed during the interview that the banking cartels have plans to microchip everyone on the planet in order to control populations and commerce. Russo said it is a matter of their desire to control and the bottom line is, if a person doesn’t comply with the New World Order, their chip will be turned off; they won’t even be able to buy food! Understand that Aaron Russo has never claimed to be a Christian. He reported this information in his documentaries because the things he learned from Nic Rockefeller infuriated him. The World Bank used to solicit ideas for “economic equality” and a few years ago their website included summaries on how that could be accomplished, such as a uniform income for all… They have since taken all of that out of their home page and they now promote “helping the impoverished, stamping out disease, such as Ebola,” and other projects. This is a facade. Their workshop UBI trials are being used, or are in the process of being launched, in many cities globally. They are still hard at work on implementing a global cashless society and they are appealing to multitudes who feel economically busted. The IRS and state tax boards are in collusion with the banksters. I know someone whose taxes went up over $500 in 2018, and the federal income table shows their income to be below the poverty level, yet their tax bill suddenly went up hundreds of dollars in 2018, even after Trump worked hard with IRS to lower taxes. I would hate to think President Trump knows something; I believe he was duped. With tax increases like that, who can survive with a low income under their global Communist regime? Some people say Russo was killed. I don’t know, but plenty of whistleblowers have died young. The Word of God tells us that the spirit of antichrist is a raiser of taxes: “There shall arise in his (prior ruler’s) place one who imposes taxes on the glorious kingdom (Israel), but within a few days he shall be destroyed, but not in anger or in battle” Daniel 11:20. This person, who precedes the final antichrist, also has the spirit of antichrist and he raises taxes in Israel, which is one of the traits of the antichrist spirit (there will have been many antichrists prior to the last one (1 John 2:18) and they all have the same mode of operation. Muslim rulers raise the taxes of Christians; it’s called “jizyah.” The last antichrist, described to Daniel by the Archangel Gabriel, is portrayed in the passages following Daniel 11:20 (above): “And in his place (the raiser of taxes) shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of the kingdom, but he shall come in peaceably and obtain the kingdom by flatteries…And forces shall be mustered by him and they shall defile the sanctuary and take away the daily sacrifice and place there the abomination of desolation…Then the king (final antichrist) shall do according to his will; he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god and shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods and shall prosper, until the wrath has been accomplished, for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god, for he shall exalt himself above them all” Daniel 11:21, 31, 36-37. So, we see a raiser of taxes in Israel, then his demise, and the last and final antichrist is ushered into power. This is a paradigm of exactly what will be happening in America, because as the antichrist comes to power, the globalists will exercise the same power and spirit of antichrist; it will converge upon the entire world. Why did Joseph and Mary have to tread wearily along a burdensome path to Bethlehem, while she was “heavy with child?” (What a burden!) It was to pay taxes to the same antichrist spirit in power during the time of Christ! Clue: “The thing that has been, is that which shall be…there is no new thing under the sun” Ecclesiastes 1:9.

(Excerpts taken from BillStill.com)
The Federal Reserve Bank(sters) [FRB] have not kept their debt-based financial system intact lying down; they have been very busy for more than a century.
Andrew Jackson (1829-1837), the 7th US President, vowed to stop the FRB from destroying this nation financially, and when the 1816 charter of the privately owned Bank of the United States (from which FRB evolved) expired, Andrew Jackson vetoed its renewal. He said to Congress, “The Bank is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!” He said to the megabanksters, “You are a den of vipers and thieves! I intend to rout you out and by the grace of the Eternal God, I will rout you out!” In 1834, Jackson removed all government monies from the Rothschild’s Second Bank of the United States. On January 31, 1835, Richard Lawrence tried to assassinate President Jackson, but his gun misfired. (Notice, Andrew Jackson referred to the “Eternal God.” The Eternal God, no doubt, protected him!)
Zachary Taylor (1849-1850), the 12th President of the United States, said, “The idea of a national bank (like FRB) is dead and will not be revived in my time.” Zachary Taylor opposed a privately owned central bank. He died after eating a bowl of cherries and milk. Many believe he died of arsenic poisoning.
James Buchanan (1857-1861), the 15th President of the United States, exposed unconstitutional schemes perpetrated by the Bank of the United States and he opposed a privately owned central bank. He suffered arsenic poisoning at a banquet, during which 38 others died of the poisoning, but Buchanan survived. He was a close friend of Andrew Jackson.
Abraham Lincoln (1861-1865), the 16th US President, needed money to finance the Civil War. The megabanksters offered him loans with interest rates ranging from 24-36 percent. Lincoln had too much integrity to place that type of financial burden on the American people. He also wasn’t an imbecile, as some who have governed this nation. He went to Congress and proposed printing currency to finance the war. Lincoln printed more than 400 million “Greenbacks” (interest free debt) and paid the soldiers, US government employees and bought war supplies. Lincoln said, “The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy and more selfish than beaurocracy. It denounces as public enemies all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.” Abraham Lincoln.
Abraham Lincoln opposed a private national bank in 1865.
Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865 by John Wilkes Booth.
Abraham Lincoln was the greatest US President.
James Garfield (1881-1881), the 20th US President, said, “He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation.” James Garfield opposed a privately owned national bank. James Garfield was raised by a widow in Ohio and he worked many jobs to fund his higher education. James Garfield had integrity. His presidency lasted only 200 days, from March 4, 1881 to September 19, 1881. He was assassinated by Charles Guiteau. Integrity is unable to stay in Washington very long.
William McKinley (1897-1901), the 25th President of the United States, advocated the gold standard. McKinley passed the Gold Standard Act of 1900, making gold the standard currency for the entire nation, and he opposed a private national bank. Leon Czolgosz assassinated President McKinley on September 14, 1901.
John F Kennedy (1961-1963), the 35th President of the United States, signed Executive Order (EO) 11110 on June 4, 1963, to effectively put an end to the private national bank and generate Silver Certificates, a national debt free currency. John F Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, within five months of his EO to alleviate our national debt to the megabanksters for simply printing and issuing our own currency. There has been such an enormous coverup surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy that the true facts may never be revealed to the public. He was not assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. Jack Ruby’s killing of Oswald sealed any possible exoneration of Oswald. Kennedy’s fate was sealed as soon as he signed EO 11110. After his assassination, the Silver Certificates he printed were withdrawn from circulation and were never issued again. Linden Johnson’s administration acted as though EO 11110 did not exist, which should tell us all something about Johnson’s relationship to the megabanksters. Those in the White House who oppose the megabanksters generally don’t live long.
Gerald Ford (1973-1974) was the 38th President of the United States, and he absolutely refused a bailout for New York City, but after two assassination attempts on his life, he changed his mind. Gerald Ford opposed a private national bank. He said, “Government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”
Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) was the 40th US President. President Reagan authorized an investigation into how federal income tax dollars are spent. Subsequent to the investigation, the Grace Commission Report stated, “One hundred percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal debt (to the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank) and by the Federal Government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on services, which taxpayers expect from their government.” All federal tax dollars are spent paying the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank for printing and managing US currency, which prior to Woodrow Wilson’s Federal Reserve Act, the US printed and managed just by paying employees. Ronald Reagan opposed a private national bank. He said, “I just wanted to speak to you about something from the Internal Revenue Code. It is the last sentence of section 509A of the code and it reads: ‘For purposes of paragraph 3, an organization described in paragraph 2 shall be deemed to include an organization described in section 501C-4, 5, or 6, which would be described in paragraph 2 if it were an organization described in section 501C-3.’ And that’s just one sentence out of fifty-seven feet of books.”
As Reagan made plans to replace the Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Paul Volcker, John Hinckley made an attempt to assassinate Reagan on March 30, 1981. After the assassination attempt, Reagan changed his mind about replacing Volcker.
The Word of God tells us,
“Having food and raiment, let us be therewith content; but they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition; for the love of money is the root of all evil, which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:8-10
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 5
Last month, I wrote about the Universal Basic Income (UBI) programs, which have been set up in various locations throughout the world, spread out uniformly, and how there will be a global cashless monetary system in place during the last days, according to Bible prophecy: “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads, that no man might buy or sell, except he who has the mark, the name of the beast (antichrist), or the number of his name. Here is wisdom: Let him who has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, sixty-six” Revelation 13:16-18 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). I believe the Globalists already tried to write the “mark of the beast” into the Affordable Care Act, which had to be rewritten due to public outcry, after Christians learned that an RFID chip was part of Obama(don’t)care. The chip is actually still in the bill, but instead of “RFID,” they used the term “implantable device,” which is elective. The “mark of the beast” will also be elective, but the Bible tells us that those who refuse it will be decapitated: “I saw thrones and they (saints) sat on them, and judgment was given to them (during the Millennial Reign), and the souls of those who were beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast, nor his image (perhaps an avatar), neither had received his mark on their foreheads, or their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” Revelation 20:4. (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). The following is a summary of the facts presented in the Bible for end times, 1) The saints hinder the work of the antichrist: “The mystery of iniquity is already at work; he who now restrains (original Hebrew) will restrain, until he is taken out of the way” 2 Thessalonians 2:7. 2) The saints will be caught up before the antichrist is revealed and the great tribulation begins, when the wrath of God is poured out: “For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:9. “Watch, therefore, and pray always, that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and stand before the Son of Man” Luke 21:36. 3) After the saints are gone, the antichrist will appear on the global scene and mandate the “mark of the beast” (Revelation 13:16-18). 4) The false prophet will also force everyone to worship the antichrist, and he will perform signs and wonders and bring fire down from heaven: “He exercises all the power of the first beast (antichrist) before him, and he causes those who dwell on the earth to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed (the antichrist will recover from a deadly wound); and he does great wonders and causes fire to come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men” Revelation 13:12:13. The method that will be used ultimately to facilitate the global cashless monetary system (mark of the beast) might involve modalities already in place, or something entirely different. Albeit, regardless of the method used, whether it will be an RFID chip, a coded tattoo, or another type of device inserted under the skin, or superficially, we do know, without a doubt, that it is coming and it isn’t far off, because of the signs we see in Israel: “When the Lord shall build up Zion (Israel), He shall appear in His glory” Psalms 102:16. Jesus said there would be a final definite sign: “This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then the end shall come” Matthew 24:14. In Matthew 24, Jesus told His disciples about signs that would lead up to the end; but He finally said in verse 14, that when the Gospel is preached in all nations, the end would come. Primarily with satellite television and the internet, the gospel has been preached in every nation on the planet. We are here, folks! The Lord could catch up the saints at any moment. No other prophecy must be fulfilled before the rapture of the saints. I have to mention this also before closing this letter; if I sinned and my heart was drawn away from the Lord and His return (God forbid!), and if I were left behind, facing the great tribulation, I would absolutely lay my neck down on the guillotine, rather than receive the “mark of the beast,” because the Bible is very clear, those who receive it are doomed to hell forever, with no reprieve: “And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If anyone worships the beast and the image of it and receives a mark on his forehead, or on his hand, even he shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, having been mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath, and will be tormented by fire and brimstone before the holy angels and before the Lamb (Jesus); and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and those who worshiped the beast and the image of it, even anyone who receives the mark of the name of it. Here is the patience of the saints: those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” Revelation 14:9-12 (ET – Elim אֵילִם Translation). I am out of space. I will continue this study next month, God willing.
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 4
I wrote last month about drones flying around Gatwick Airport, and after 67 credible witnesses reported seeing them, British officials announced there were probably no drones after all, once they discovered the many surveillance cameras at the airport didn’t film one drone. I had to laugh, because they rely so much on what they can see with their natural eyes. The Word of God tells us, “We walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians5:7. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” Hebrews 11:1. If they could see what I see in the Spirit, they might check themselves into insane asylums! If you believe in God, it is important, especially in this hour, to believe that He is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent and that there is nothing He cannot do. If you don’t believe that, but you say you believe in God, you actually don’t believe in Him. We need to come to a point of self-examination about who we are. God has the attributes named above and if we aren’t convinced of it, we need to address that unbelief. I am not in any way suggesting that Christians should feel defeated, but I am saying that if we don’t truly believe that He is all knowing, everywhere at the same time and all powerful, we need to pray for the gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12), among which is the gift of faith, faith to believe God for who He really is and to hang our lives on it. How was it that the apostles, except for one, gave up their very lives for what they believed? How did they acquire the strength to endure martyrdom for the sake of Jesus? Peter was crucified upside down for his faith. The Apostle Paul was beheaded for his testimony of Jesus Christ. He was raised a Pharisee, an Orthodox Jew, taught by Gamaliel, highly educated, and he even killed Christians, believing himself to do God a service. The Word tells us that after Jesus appeared to Paul on the Damascus road, on his way to arrest more Christians, he underwent a profound conversion. Agrippa said of Paul’s testimony, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian” Acts 26:28. Paul saw Jesus in a vision, which actually blinded him for three days, until Ananias came to heal him, and he also prayed that Paul would be filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:17). This is how Paul transitioned from being a staunch Orthodox Jew, among the elite of society, to becoming a humble tentmaker, as he journeyed to Arabia, Syria, Israel, Asia, Greece and Italy, to witness about Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah). The apostles gave their lives and many other Christians have given their lives for the sake of Christ. Each and every one of us need to resolve in our hearts that we too are willing to give up our lives for His sake, if necessary; because at the end of days, some will actually have to make that decision, if they miss the catching up (rapture) of the saints (I Thessalonians 4:16-18). Revelation 20:4 says, “I saw thrones and those who sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them, and I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for their witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast (antichrist), neither his image (perhaps an avatar), neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” John the Revelator saw visions given to him by Jesus on the Isle of Patmos, where he had been exiled for his testimony of Jesus (the only apostle not martyred). He saw those who were beheaded for refusing the “mark of the beast,” which everyone is required to take during the seven-year tribulation, in order to buy or sell. There will be a cashless monetary system. We can even see signs of that coming right now. Today, many establishments are no longer receiving cash. Countries throughout the world are already starting Universal Basic Income (UBI) trials (see the UBI map above – https://basicincome.org/). It sounds like a wonderful idea, right? Get your free money; “no strings attached,” says Gangland Chicago! Satan is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44). It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that when people start receiving a steady income, or a boost to their low income, when they are finally offered the choice of receiving a tattoo or microchip (mark of the beast) in order to continue receiving the money, or it will be stopped, most will receive that mark; those who don’t will be beheaded (Revelation 20:4). Until next month, God willing.
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 3
Last month, I left off writing about UFOs and the fact that, even though they appear to be a new enigma occurring throughout the world in our generation, there is nothing new according to the Word of God (Ecclesiastes 1:9). A good example of the fact that UFOs are not new is found in Ezekiel 1, as Ezekiel describes heavenly beings that carry the throne of God and appear with what he described as “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (Ezekiel 1:16). A wheel in the middle of a wheel? If I were an ancient prophet, with a limited vocabulary concerning the description of flying saucers, I believe I might very well describe one as “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” myself. Is anything too hard for God? When we see technological advancements all around us today, it behooves us to be ever mindful of the fact that our advanced development products are as trinkets to the Lord. He is the founder of this technology and it is all antiquated in His sight. With that in mind, if you ever see a space craft that you are unable to identify and it moves faster than anything you have ever seen in your life, realize that this is nothing new to God (that perception will help you ingest what you are seeing), and understand that the being in that craft is either angelic and from God, or a fallen angel and up to no good. From what I have studied during the last 10+ years, and from what God has allowed me to see in the Spirit, I will prophesy this to you, This generation will see a great upsurge in UFO activity. We would be able to identify that fact even now, except that the leaders of this nation have censored many reports that they couldn’t, or would not, explain. Albeit, just before Christmas, the second to the largest airport in Britain, Gatwick, was closed after many drone sightings were reported at the airport. Hundreds of flights were delayed and ~140,000 passengers were stranded. Officials received 67 eyewitness accounts from reliable sources (67 accounts from airlines staff, police officers and the public) Wednesday through Friday before Christmas, so they closed the airport; but after they discovered that not one of the many security cameras throughout the airport (one of the most surveilled strips of land in England) didn’t film not even one drone, they decided there were probably no drones after all. While writing my first report about the incident on December 21, 2018, and before authorities came to that conclusion (https://bibleprophecy.wordpress.com/2018/12/21/disappearing-drones/), I wrote that the “drones” were likely celestial, not terrestrial, because I have seen them since the first week in April 2018. (Also see my last article on the subject: https://bibleprophecy.wordpress.com/2018/12/26/london-police-re-gatwick-airport-drone-sightings-it-is-possible-the-drone-sightings-were-not-genuine/). Last month, I wrote about Jesus’s warning to us, found in Matthew 24:24, “There shall arise false Christs and false prophets, who will show great signs and wonders, insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (of God).” The Word of God also tells us that a mighty false prophet will follow the uprising of the antichrist (the “beast” – Revelation 13), and he will exercise power to deceive the multitudes, “…whose names have not been written in the Book of Life…” (Revelation 13:8). John the Revelator forewarned that this powerful (whose power is from satan) false prophet will even bring fire down from heaven, “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men” Revelation 13:13. I don’t know about you, but anyone who has the power to bring fire down from heaven to the earth, has my undivided attention, and would also have my admiration, except for the fact that Jesus gave a revelation to John and forewarned us about this false prophet and the “beast” that precedes him. This is one excellent reason to know the Word of God better than you know yourself, better than you know anything in the world! If you don’t know God’s Word, if it isn’t engraved in every fiber of your being, you could be deceived in these last days! Take heed, saints; take heed people! King David, God’s beloved, wrote, “Your Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against You” Psalms 119:11. God’s Word tells us what we need to know, how to avoid deception and sin, how to live pleasing in God’s sight, and the Word gives prophetic insight for end times, the hour in which we live right now. God’s Word is the roadmap to salvation, to pleasing God, and entering into eternal life. Not knowing God’s Word is the path to death, destruction, and quite frankly, even though it isn’t preached hardly ever these days, everlasting hell fire. Everyone wants the first option, right? Unless we are under the age of accountability before God, we had better read His Word and live by it, for we are upon a time when great deceptions will befall the inhabitants of the earth; but those who are watching and waiting for the Lord and who abide in His Word shall escape. Until next month, God willing. God bless and keep you.
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 2
Last month, I left off writing about the great deception that the Bible tells us will deceive even the very elect of God’s people, if He did not shorten the days: “Except those days (the last days) should be shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened…for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, who will show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:22, 24. I consider myself God’s elect, and I know there are some who receive this newsletter who are the elect of God; we know by the fruit you bear. Can you imagine that even those who do their utmost to fear God and live holy, would be deceived if the Lord waited any longer than He does, before He catches us up and out of the evil and darkness that is coming? Starting in about 2015, the Lord has taken me down a path of information and insight that has also taken me a bit of time to ingest, because of the spiritual implications that, until that time, did not exist in this present world, as I knew it, but only throughout Biblical history. When the Word, the miraculous, became manifest in my life, in the here and now, that’s when God’s revelations began to pour into my heart and soul about what is happening today, which not many people are willing to recognize, even if they come face to face with it. I am late getting this newsletter out in December, but there was a reason for that, it seems. An article came out in the news on December 4th that I needed to reference this month. Mail Online published an article, quoting Silvano Colombano, a NASA scientist, who works in the Intelligent Systems Division. He said, “I simply want to point out the fact that the intelligence we might find, and that might choose to find us, might not be at all produced by carbon based organisms like us.” He said intelligent aliens may have already visited earth, but we wouldn’t have noticed due to their “extremely tiny” size. He also said that not every UFO sighting can be “explained, or denied” (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6457259/NASA-expert-says-alien-life-visited-Earth.html). This is a form of disclosure by NASA, and I say that because, according to Lieutenant Colonel Philip James Corso, who wrote The Day After Roswell, and who served in the Army as chief of the US Counterintelligence Corps, and later chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology in Army Research and Development, stated during his interview with Art Bell on Coast to Coast radio, on July 23, 1997, there was a coverup in Roswell in 1947, and he spoke of the recovery of “aliens” from craft that crashed there. Some in high ranks tried to discredit Corso, but there were also some witnesses who stood by his testimony. He said it was wrong to deceive the public about UFOs. I believe Corso’s account, which is still played on You Tube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Uv9DIkM7K0), not only because of his credentials, but why would a man in his position lie? There are also others who testify that UFOs exist. The existence of ETs and UFOs do not invalidate the existence of God, or His Holy Word, but they rather expound on Biblical truth. Extraterrestrials, as they are called, are either angels in heavenly craft, as described in Ezekiel, Chapter 1; or they are evil fallen angels, as described in Genesis 6:2, 4, as “sons of God,” which (in Hebrew) are the same words described in Job 1:6, Job 2:1, and Job 38:6-7, describing the “sons of God,” who were there when the world was created (definitely not the sons of mankind), and the Book of Enoch, Book 1 – Watchers. The “sons of God,” “watchers” and “angels” are all names of God’s angelic beings, including those who have fallen, such as satan himself. God said to Job, “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if you have understanding, who has laid the measures thereof, if you know; or who has stretched the (measuring) line upon it, whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened; or who laid the cornerstone thereof, when the morning stars sang together (stars do not sing, these were angels that shone like stars) and all of the sons of God shouted for joy?” Job 38:4-7. In this passage of scripture, the Lord asked Job where he was when the foundations of the earth were laid, when stars sang and all the sons of God shouted for joy. God is referring to His created heavenly beings that “sang” and “shouted for joy” while the earth was being created. Now, all over the world, people are reporting UFO sightings; yet, the Word of God tells us, “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be, and that which is done, is that which shall be done, and there is no new thing under the sun” Ecclesiastes 1:9. If there is no new thing under the sun, but these UFOs appear to be new, they aren’t really new. Their appearance is leading up to a great deception that Jesus warned us about: “…and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11. Until next month…
“…with all power, signs and lying wonders” II Thessalonians 2:9 – Part 1
During the First Century, the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica, with an exhortation not to believe rumors at that time that the Lord’s return was at hand. Paul wrote, “Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away (a departure from the true faith that was once delivered to the saints) first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (also called the ‘antichrist’)” II Thessalonians 2:9. Paul knew by the Spirit of discernment that Jesus’s return was not imminent in his day. In Matthew 24, Jesus described events that would precede His return, and then He said, “So likewise, when you see all these things, know that it is near (His return), even at the doors” Matthew 24:33. Paul knew by discerning the signs of the times that a distinct “falling away” had not occurred, nor had the final antichrist been revealed in his day. He also received a revelation directly from the Lord, which he wrote about in his first letter to the same church. He wrote to the church in Thessalonica, “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord; therefore, comfort one another with these words” I Thessalonians 4:16-18. This is not the “return of the Lord” to the earth, but rather Paul is referring to the pretribulation rapture, or catching up of the saints. We will be “caught up…to meet the Lord in the air.” This happens when the seven-year tribulation begins. Many people think this passage of scripture is referring to the return of the Lord, but it is actually the event that takes place when the Lord delivers His people from the impending wrath of God that will come upon the entire earth. Jesus also told the Apostle John (referring to the church in Philadelphia), “Because you have kept the Word of My patience (His commandments), I will also keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” Revelation 3:10. The Lord actually returns to the earth with all of His saints at the end of the seven-year tribulation, which is described in Revelation 19:11-16 and Zechariah 14:3-5. The Prophet Zechariah wrote that the Lord will return, “and all the saints with Him.” This following passage of scripture defines it even better, that we will not be here on the earth during the great tribulation: “Watch, therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the Son of man (Jesus)” Luke 21:36. When the Apostle Paul wrote to the church about the Lord’s return, stating that He would not return until the “man of sin is revealed,” he was referring to the Lord’s return with His saints, after the seven-year tribulation, because it is during the middle of the tribulation (3 ½ years after the tribulation begins) that the antichrist will be revealed and cause the sacrifices to cease in the Temple of God (the Third Temple that will be built during the tribulation) and he will set up the “abomination” (Matthew 24:15) in the Holy Place. Paul continued writing to the church in Thessalonica (a continuation from II Thessalonians 2:9 [above]), “Who (the antichrist) opposes and exalts himself above all who are called God, or that is worshiped; so he, as God, will sit in the Temple of God, showing himself that he is God…for the mystery of iniquity already works (in the world), but he who now letteth (restrains – original Greek) will let (restrain), until he is taken out of the way (when the saints are caught up, because our presence in this world restrains the antichrist from gaining control); and then shall that wicked (man of sin) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, even him whose coming is after the work of satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause, God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, that they might be damned, who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” II Thessalonians 2:4, 7-12. According to the Scriptures, God will absolutely come for His people and not only deliver us from His wrath that will fall upon the whole earth, but also the strong deception that will follow the catching up of the saints, otherwise referred to as the “rapture,” which means the same thing. The Word of God tells us here that those who have rejected Jesus Christ as their Savior, will be totally deceived and they will believe strong satanic delusion in the last days. I will continue with this study next month, God willing.
“The Book of Remembrance” Malachi 3
Last month, I mentioned the Lord’s “Book of Remembrance” spoken of in the last book of the Old Testament, the Book of Malachi. There are some “Christians” who want to have nothing to do with the Old Testament because they say, “We are not under the law.” This is true, we are not under the law with regard to keeping the ordinances laid out in the written law, especially the 603 precepts encircling the Ten Commandments given to Moses and the priesthood by God. When someone asked Jesus what the “great commandment” is in the law, He said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment, and the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” Matthew 22:37-40. No amount of killing sheep on the altars of sacrifice can add to anything Christ said right here. Albeit, Jesus said something else that we should examine carefully, because unless God said He retracted a blessing, or a commandment, it still stands. Jesus told the scribes and Pharisees of His day, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You pay tithe (a tenth of one’s increase) of mint, anise and cummin (in-kind tithes of spices), and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith; these ought you to have done (paying tithes) and not to leave the other undone” Matthew 23:23. Jesus didn’t only say, “You shouldn’t have left the other undone;” rather, He said, “These ought you to have done, and not left the other undone.” Jesus confirmed to them, and those of us who read His Words today, that they were doing that which is pleasing to the Lord by paying their tithes, but that they should also exercise “judgment, mercy and faith.” I used the “tithe” as an example of a commandment that is taught in the Old Testament, which Jesus Himself confirmed is something that God’s people should continue to do. The Prophet Malachi wrote about God’s “Book of Remembrance,” which included written accounts of those who “feared the Lord, spoke often to one another…and that thought upon His name” Malachi 3:16. What identified these, who were written in the Book of Remembrance, as those who “feared the Lord?” King Solomon, who was the wisest man among all the kings (2 Chronicles 1:11-12; 9:22), gave us a clue as to what identifies those who “fear the Lord.” Solomon wrote, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter, Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man” Ecclesiastes 12:13. In other words, those who fear God are the same ones who will keep His commandments with a pure heart. Whether or not a person actually keeps the commandments which are important to the Lord (not animal sacrifices and such), but things that are considered “the weightier matters,” is not as significant as our earnest effort to do so, for God looks on the heart and He is a loving and forgiving God. The Apostle John wrote, “My little children (saints of God), these things I write to you, that you sin not; and if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ The Righteous” 1 John 2:1. God sees whether or not we intend to keep His Word, or whether we are living in a state of unrepentant sin; He knows our hearts. The things the Prophet Malachi wrote in the entire 3rd chapter include some of the things that God considers important: Tithes and offerings: for God made this promise, “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse (House of God, generally the church you attend) that there may be meat in My house, and prove Me now with this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you, and pour out a blessing to you, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” Malachi 3:10; and Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” Matthew 6:21. Fear the Lord (and keep His commandments): Jesus said, “If you love Me, keep My commandments” John 14:15; and the Apostle John wrote, “This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not grievous” 1 John 5:3. The reward for accepting Jesus as our Savior, and abstinence from sin, is heaven: “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you” John 14:2. The reward for faithfulness is escaping the tribulation: “They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels, and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him” Malachi 3:17. Some will be martyred during the seven-year tribulation (Revelation 20:4), because they weren’t ready (Matthew 25) when the “catching up” of the saints took place (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
ראש השנה (Rosh Hashanah) The Feast of Trumpets
Every Jewish Feast was a type and shadow of things to come concerning Jesus, our Savior. Jesus was crucified on Passover (John 13:1), which the Jews celebrated because the death angel “passed over” and did not slay their firstborn, only slaying the firstborn of the Egyptians (those who enslaved them). A lamb was slain during Passover and its blood was placed on the outer doorposts of the Hebrews’ homes, keeping the death angel away (Exodus 12). This was indicative of the death of Jesus (the true Passover Lamb – John 1:29), who took the punishment of death for our sins, so we could live – forever – when we leave this world. The Feast of Firstfruits signifies that Jesus would be the first to be raised from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:20). The Feast of Tabernacles was a feast instituted by God for His people, to remind them of their wandering in the wilderness, and that God was with them, which indicates God will dwell with us also throughout eternity. The Feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:23) is the only feast that Jews have speculated about, because they were given no explanation from God as to why they should celebrate that day. The Feast of Trumpets is celebrated as Israel’s New Year and, according to the Hebrew calendar, it is expected to arrive at sundown (the Jewish day is from sundown to sundown) on Elul 29, 5779 (September 9, 2018). Another mystery about this feast is that no one knows for certain what day the actual Feast of Trumpets will begin, until two witnesses spot the sliver of the new moon in the sky. The Feast of Trumpets is projected on the Hebrew calendar each year, but unlike any other feast day, they can’t know for sure it will be that day, until they see the sliver of the new moon. Last year (2017), it was supposed to fall on September 21st, but the sliver of the moon did not appear until September 22nd, so it was a day later than the day marked on the Hebrew calendar. This feast day is also known by Jews as the Day of Remembrance. Remembrance of what? It was a definition given by the ancient rabbis and was thought to be Resurrection Day. There is a clue for us in the last book of the Old Testament, Malachi. The Prophet Malachi was the only prophet to write about God’s Book of Remembrance: “Then those who feared the Lord spoke often to one another, and the Lord heard it, and a Book of Remembrance was written before Him, for those who feared the Lord and who thought upon His name” Malachi 3:16. In the same chapter 3, Malachi wrote about the return of the Lord, and how He will judge His people: “Even from the days of your fathers, you have gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you, saith the Lord of hosts; but you said, In what way shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet, you have robbed Me. But you say, In what way have we robbed You? In tithes (a tenth – Leviticus 27:30) and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in My house (support for God’s house), and prove Me by this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing to you, that there shall not be room enough to receive it; and I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts; and all nations shall call you blessed, for you shall be a delightsome land, says the Lord of hosts. Then they that feared the Lord spoke often one to another, and the Lord heard it, and a Book of Remembrance was written before Him, for those who feared the Lord and who thought upon His name; and they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels, and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him” Malachi 3:7-12, 16-17. God said He will spare us if our names are written in that book. Spare us from what? The Word of God tells us that the Lord will “catch up” His saints before the great tribulation beings (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). Jesus said, “Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man (Jesus)” Luke 21:36. I believe the Lord will catch up His faithful saints on the Day of Remembrance (Rosh Hashanah). Jesus said, “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man comes” Matthew 25:13. No man knows the day, or the hour, when the Feast of Trumpets officially begins, because they have to see the sliver of the moon first. It is also interesting to note that the “last trumpet” sounds when the saints are changed (1 Corinthians 15:50-54). The Bible tells us people will be saved by martyrdom during the great tribulation. I want to go up before it begins, don’t you?
“Add to Faith Virtue” – Part 2
Jesus did the following, as He administered the Last Supper, Holy Communion: “He took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. Likewise, also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the New Testament in My blood, which is shed for you” Luke 22:19-20. This Holy Communion between Jesus and His disciples was symbolic, obviously. They didn’t actually eat the flesh of Jesus, nor did they drink His blood, as Catholics proclaim. The spiritual significance in the holy convocation is very significant nevertheless. Jesus rather made reference to the spiritual covenant between Himself and His people, like a marriage union. This, partaking of His body, represents the relationship between Christ and those who surrender their lives to Him, as He did for us. Jesus laid down His life for the entire world, but does He have communion with the world? Absolutely not, James said, “You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” James 4:4. He wasn’t speaking about casual acquaintances with other people in the world who aren’t saved; otherwise, we could never win a soul to Christ. He spoke of our involvement with the world, worldliness. There is a major difference between having a friendly relationship with your neighbor and perhaps gaining an opportunity to witness about Jesus, versus going to watch the fights at your neighbor’s home and drinking alcohol with him. We have to live in the world, but we are not to become like the world, or participate in many of the things that are going on in the world, especially today. “The world is the enemy of God.” The Prophet Amos said, “Can two walk together, except they agree?” Amos 3:3. Paul admonished the people of God, “Be not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners” 1 Corinthians 15:33. He also wrote in his second letter to the church in Corinth, “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17. Has everything changed in your life since you surrendered yourself, your will and purpose over to the Lord; or are you still struggling with your old habits and lifestyle? For those who want to gain strength to live holy, it is imperative to seek God for “the promise” (Acts 1:4-5). Some Christians receive the Holy Ghost with salvation; others receive when they decide to fully surrender to God, at a later point in time. There was another famous outpouring of the Holy Ghost, aside from the event that occurred on the Day of Pentecost, in the upper room (Acts 2). It occurred in California, in the year 1906, and it was called the Azusa Street Revival. Some humble saints of God read the account of the gift of the Holy Ghost given to the Apostles, as described in Acts 2, and decided they had to have it. Before I go any further, it is important to note here that God spoke through the Prophet Jeremiah, saying, “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13. Just a handful of saints got together under the leadership of a humble black man by the name of William J Seymour, and they prayed every day in a little house on Bonnie Brea Street in Los Angeles, until so many people gathered because of the manifest power of God at the little house, that the porch fell through, and they knew they needed more space. They acquired a large stable on Azusa Street and converted it into a church. What happened next lasted every night for three full years. The Holy Ghost fell on those saints, people were healed, and they couldn’t stop gathering for three years, from 1906-1909. A worldwide Pentecostal renewal sprang up from that single revival, which by the year 2000 numbered over 250,000,000. That’s what the power of the Holy Ghost can do! One of the few accurate, unabridged, accounts of the event was written by Frank Bartleman, titled, Azusa Street. Hoity-toity stiff-necks would likely call it a group of hysterical converts going way overboard. That’s pretty much what they also said about the Apostles on the Day of Pentecost: “They were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying to one another, What does this mean? Others mocking, said, These men are full of new wine” Acts 2:12-13. The same people that are ashamed of the manifestation of the Holy Ghost, are the very same ones who feel uncomfortable talking to people about Jesus. We need to examine ourselves before Judgment Day, friends, to determine if we are really in the faith. Jesus said, “Whoever, therefore, shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” Mark 8:38. If you find yourself squirmish when witnessing to others about Jesus, consider what Jesus said to His disciples, “You will receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth” Acts 1:8.
The Apostle Peter wrote to the church, who obtained the “precious promises” the apostles received from Jesus Christ, saying, “According as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory (His presence) and virtue (His characteristics), whereby we are given exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. Beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge” 2 Peter 1:3-5 (emphasis added). God has already promised His people “all things that pertain to life and godliness,” if we want them. The Lord has already, in His plan for us, made available His “divine nature,” if we want it. When we come to Christ, repent and receive Him as our Lord and Savior, He offers Himself and His nature to us, if we want it. Jesus Himself said, “On that day (the Day of the Lord), you will know that I Am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I Am in you. He that has My commandments, and keeps them, it is he who loves Me, and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him” John 14:20-21. Jesus compares His relationship to us as that of a bride and groom (Matthew 25), simply because of the close covenant relationship He has made with His people; it is that close – intimate in the most spiritual sense. Jesus said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps, but took no oil with them; but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept (which is what many of the churches are doing right now. They have one foot in the world, and the other foot in the church, accepting homosexuality and other sins, but God doesn’t change [Hebrews 13:8]). At midnight, a cry was heard, ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet Him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps, and the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ The wise answered saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you, but rather go to those who sell and buy for yourselves.’ While they went to buy, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went in with Him to the wedding, and the door was shut. Afterward, the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But He answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch, therefore, for you do not know the day, nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming” Matthew 25:1-13. Too many people, who claim to be Christians, want to enjoy the pleasures of sin and worldliness, yet hang on to the name of Christ. Jesus demonstrated plainly that isn’t going to happen. The reserve of oil for our lamps is indicative of the gift of the Holy Ghost, which is for Christians who are willing to surrender all. All Christians would say they desire a deep personal relationship with the Lord, but not many are willing to surrender themselves to His will daily for that kind of intimate relationship. Before He ascended to the Father, Jesus told His disciples to wait for the “power” that would be sent to them for service: “Being assembled together with them, Jesus commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard of Me; for truly John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days from now…You shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria and to the uttermost part of the earth” Acts 1:4-5, 8. I can’t stress enough how important it is, especially in these last days, to have the gift of the Holy Ghost, power from God for service and to be an effective witness. Right after telling His disciples they would receive the “promise (the Holy Ghost),” He ascended up to Heaven. The apostles then went to an upper room in Jerusalem and waited for the promise of God. “When the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place, and suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them cloven tongues of fire and it sat upon each of them, and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” Acts 2:1-4. People are filled with the gift of the Holy Ghost today, just as they were filled on the day of Pentecost, around 2,000 years ago. Many preachers deny this, because they haven’t themselves received the gift of the Holy Ghost, because they are perhaps too much involved in the world, or they don’t believe it is still for us today, and they can’t receive what they don’t believe they can have. The best way out for them is to deny that the saints are being filled with the Holy Ghost today. It is a definite experience, undeniable to those who have received it. I’m out of space, but will continue next month, God willing. God bless you.
The Prophecy of Zechariah 12
The Prophet Zechariah wrote about the last days, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all people round about (the Muslim nations surrounding Israel), when they shall siege both against Judah and Jerusalem. And in that day (the context of the entire chapter places this prophecy in the last days, just preceding the Lord’s return), I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut to pieces, although all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” Zechariah 12:2-3. Israel has “diplomatic” relations with 159 nations (as of March 2017), many who enjoy receiving imports from Israel’s vast produce, and other products, and more importantly their assistance with technological and medical advancements. Not a few of these same nations, however, are quick to turn against Israel when it comes to the Palestinians, or any other conflict with Muslim nations. In fact, with the Palestinians converging on Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip, many of the nations who have diplomatic ties with Israel are now against them. Tens of thousands of Palestinians thronged Israel’s border and demanded the right to enter into their “ancestral home in Palestine,” starting in March 2018. If Palestinians were the least bit friendly with Israelis, they would have no problem entering Israel’s borders, as so many tourists and immigrants have been welcomed; but Palestinians, with Hamas terrorists at their side, hate Israel vehemently and they consistently launch missiles and dig tunnels into Israel in order to strike terror. How rational is it that most nations are siding with the Palestinians? The idea is ridiculous, but satan has no favorites. He distorts the minds of all who serve him! Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), representing 57 member nations, after President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel on December 6, 2017. During the OIC meeting in Istanbul, the Muslim nations agreed that East Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine. They said the US decision was “null and void legally.” Speaking at that conference, President Erdogan called on world powers to recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. The OIC nations met again last month in Turkey to decide what to do after Palestinians and Hamas terrorists were shot at Israel’s border, as they repeatedly fired on Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and tried to rush the border. Is not Jerusalem right now a “cup of trembling unto all people round about?” In the meantime, Iran never intended to keep the nuclear agreement forged by the Obama administration. The intelligence agency of the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg revealed that in 2017, Iran’s regime sought to obtain technology and scientific knowledge to produce weapons of mass destruction and advance their missile program, reported JPost.com (June 2, 2018). Iran publicly threatens the annihilation of Israel on a consistent basis, and they chant in their public squares, “death to Israel; death to America!” Israel was little more than a desert wasteland in 1948, when the nation was “born in a day” (Isaiah 66:8); yet today, Israel has among the top 100 arms-producing companies worldwide, they export produce and flowers throughout the world and they produce 95 percent of their own food requirements, which is nothing less than miraculous, in that more than half the tiny country is desert and only 20 percent naturally arable. Still, Israel is considered the “world-leader” in agricultural technologies (Wikipedia), planting and harvesting year round (Amos 9:13)! The Word of God tells us, “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them (the Jews), and the desert place shall rejoice and blossom as the rose” Isaiah 35:1. “The Lord shall comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places and He will make her wilderness like Eden and her desert like the garden of the Lord…” Isaiah 51:3. God never lies! The best news yet is this: “When the Lord shall build up Zion (Israel), He shall appear in His glory” Psalm 102:16. I could continue writing off the page about prophecy after prophecy having been fulfilled in our generation, which all point to the soon return of the Lord. Something else profound is happening right now, which I can only touch on in this month’s newsletter. Joel prophesied, “I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, fire and pillars of smoke” Joel 2:30. This is happening throughout the world right now. Volcanoes are erupting, people are witnessing UFO activity and YouTube.com is full of videos from around the world with the sounds of the shofar heard in the skies. The FBI is now investigating the loud booms reportedly heard in various places throughout the world, that scientists have been unable to explain. We are living in the last days and I can’t express how important it is to walk circumspectly before the Lord, and to know His Word thoroughly, because many will not be watching, nor will they be ready on that day (Matthew 25). We need to live like today could be our last day on this earth.
Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days – Series 1-12
The newsletters below consist of a 12-part series I completed from August 2015 through July 2016, which I feel led of the Lord to publish again on this website. They were originally published in 2015-16 on a different site, but the server, after I published some articles on Pizzagate, hacked out many of the archives. I thank God I am able to continue publishing on WordPress, but in this hour prophetically, we can’t take anything for granted. If the newsletters are a blessing to you, please feel free to copy, print and publish them in any way the Lord leads to spread the truth and light.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 1
I’ll never forget reading about one of Ezekiel’s visions for the first time, as it is recorded in Ezekiel 1. As I read the details of his heavenly vision, specifically about the living creatures and wheels, I was intrigued by his description of what many have also described as UFOs: “…and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel…and they turned not as they went…and their rings were full of eyes round about them…and the wheels were lifted up over against them (the living creatures), for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels…and the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creatures was the color of terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above…and when they went, I heard the noise of their wings like the noise of great waters” Ezekiel 1:16-18, 20, 22, 24. If this doesn’t sound like heavenly creatures inside of UFO spacecraft, I don’t know what does. As I continued to read, I formed a visual picture in my mind of four living creatures, angelic beings, inside of four UFOs that were circular, “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (Ezekiel 1:16). I could imagine eerie sounds of their movement, like the “noise of great waters” (Ezekiel 1:24). In fact, a few years after I read the Book of Ezekiel, I personally saw what I believed to be a group of UFOs. They traveled as fast as anything I had ever witnessed and they traveled in unison. There were several traveling rapidly and my eyes could hardly keep track of them, they moved so quickly. The sight was truly amazing and unlike anything I had ever seen. In about 1970, when I witnessed this, I believed these were celestial beings. Many years later, I saw UFO footage that appeared exactly the same as I just described. There are a lot of UFO videos on YouTube.com. Some may very well be hoaxes, or other explainable objects, but others are inexplicable. Some are shiny, circular and move very rapidly, just as Ezekiel described in his heavenly vision. If there are more than one, they often run to and fro in unison, faster than your eyes can keep up with them. When they dart across the sky, your eyes suddenly spot them at a distance in another part of the atmosphere because they move so rapidly. I have actually seen UFOs twice, once in about 1970, and again about 44 years later, just last year. I was getting ready to eat dinner, as I looked out of the dining room window and saw what appeared to be a stunningly bright star above the hills behind my home. I put my plate aside and I went to the large bedroom window to get a better look at the skyline and the magnificent star that appeared to be so close by. I was taken aback when I saw an identical huge star in the sky next to the other one I had seen from the dining room window minutes before. It suddenly dawned on me that this was very unusual indeed, because just before nightfall, the clouds were so dense throughout the sky, I thought it might even rain. I stood there wondering how these two very bright stars could be so close, but not only that, how in the world could I even see them because the sky is full of clouds! As I stared and wondered at these two very bright “stars,” one of them began to move toward the other one – and I was awestruck. Suddenly, a third bright “star” appeared and I knew these were not stars at all. All three began darting across the sky faster than I could keep track of them. I watched them for a long time. They didn’t stop to turn, when they went in a different direction. They just immediately and rapidly changed directions without turning around. One disappeared from sight and the other two finally just hovered above the hills once again. I watched the remaining two for a long time, until I finally got so tired, I ate my dinner and went to bed. The two bright UFOs were still hovering above the hills when I went to sleep. These were definitely UFOs of some unusual sort, but I wasn’t sure if they were celestial beings, or some type of advanced experimental craft being used by the government. The US government has sophisticated aircraft technology, which has not been publicized – very advanced. The manner in which these craft were flying and maneuvering across the sky indicated to me that they were either secretive aircraft, or celestial. I am out of space for now, so I will continue this study next month. There is much to consider about what great signs there may be in the heavens in these last days. Jesus said, “…fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11. “Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord shall find watching” (Luke 12:37).
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 2
Last month, I wrote about Ezekiel’s vision, which he described in Ezekiel 1, and how he saw four angelic beings and “a wheel in the middle of a wheel.” I also briefly described a couple of sightings I have had of unidentified flying objects during my lifetime, which were extraordinary, in that these craft exceeded modern capabilities, as we know them, in their flight patterns. While going into this study and its Biblical connotations, it is important to point out at the onset that although the Book of Enoch was not included in the canonized scriptures later compiled by scholars, the original books were all separate scrolls and the Book of Enoch was among them. Prophecy written in the Book of Enoch is actually also referred to in Jude, nearly word for word: “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment upon all and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds, which they have ungodly committed, and all of their hard speeches, which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him” Jude 1:14-15 (ref Book of Enoch 1:9). I have read the Book of Enoch and I have read (and have written) every word of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. I have found nothing in the Book of Enoch which contradicts canonized scripture; yet, some mysteries are included in the Book of Enoch that are found in no other writings, that I am aware of. No one knows why translators later left out certain books of the Bible that were included as part of the canonized books in the 1611 King James Bible. Some of these books, known as the Apocrypha, were part of the KJV for 274 years, until being removed in 1885 AD. Some books were part of the Bible for about 2,000 years before being removed. During my study and subsequent research of the Book of Enoch, I searched for the opinion of astronomers regarding Enoch’s detailed view of earth from heaven during his day, around 3,000 BC. I found some very interesting information about the accuracy of Enoch’s descriptions of heaven and earth from the southern sky, which astronomers say could have only been observed by someone that lived during Enoch’s time, in that the formation of the land mass was different and the stars were positioned differently. Pleiades was only visible over the Antarctica during Enoch’s day, according to Stellarium.org (if you enter the South Pole as your vantage point and enter the timeframe of 3,000 BC). I can only surmise that the translators omitted the Book of Enoch because the mysteries contained within it are not pertinent specifically to salvation and doctrine, but rather it discloses mysteries most people would find difficult to grasp, especially without having a good understanding of the canonized scriptures first. The reason I believe it is important to validate the Book of Enoch in our generation is because Enoch gives a detailed account of the fallen angels, or “watchers” (ref also Daniel 4:13, 17), who took wives for themselves among the daughters of men (ref Book of Enoch 15; Genesis 6) and taught men and women heavenly mysteries (ref Book of Enoch 16). Ancient wonders of the world prove beyond any doubt that early civilizations had greater technology than we have today, i.e.: the pyramids, statues on Easter Island (weighing up to 80+ tons and having been moved), an ancient lens found during excavation requiring advanced machinery to manufacture, etc. Enoch wrote that the fallen angels taught mysteries to men and women on earth, which would explain the advanced technology found in ancient civilizations. Since Ezekiel saw angelic beings in craft described as “wheels in the middle of wheels,” which soared through the sky, emitting fire (Ezekiel 1:4-5), it appears angelic beings have advanced craft, undoubtedly much more advanced than anything we have ever seen on earth. Since God created man, and man created stealth jets, what kind of technology do you suppose the “watchers” (angels) have? I do not believe people are documenting UFO encounters with other planetary beings, but rather angelic beings, more often than not, from the fallen malevolent type. The Word of God tells us, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Eph 6:12. We are going somewhere with these facts, but I am out of space for now, so if the Lord tarries a bit longer, I will continue with this prophetic study next month. God bless you.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 3
For the last two months, I have made reference to the ancient Book of Enoch, which was originally included with the canonized Hebraic scrolls. I failed to mention, however, that there are modernized translations of the Book of Enoch which are heretical and do not correspond to the earlier Hebrew and Aramaic translations. I have found some later translations to be very inaccurate, when comparing them to the Hebrew Interlinear text. I recommend the 1906 translation (from Ethiopian) by RH Charles, and possibly the earlier translation completed by Richard Laurence in 1821, although I haven’t read all of that translation yet. That having been said, the Book of Enoch has been placed with the apocrypha, meaning “things that are hidden, secret books,” for thousands of years. The book contains spiritual mysteries, which must be discerned spiritually, or they cannot accurately be digested by the reader. The archangel Gabriel told Daniel, “Thou, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased” Daniel 12:4. Much of what Daniel was given by Gabriel is expounded upon in John’s Revelation. Just as Gabriel told Daniel, our knowledge of these ancient books and mysteries is increasing, if for no other reason, because we can now compare what was written with what is actually coming to pass right before our eyes in the latter days. For example, we can recount and understand now how Daniel’s 69 weeks of years (of the 70-week prophecies Gabriel relayed to Daniel) has unfolded exactly as prophesied, from the decree of Artaxerxes, to the declaration of Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem as “King of kings and Lord of lords (John 12:13).” Of course, the last seven years of the prophecy is yet to be fulfilled, and that prophecy will be fulfilled during the seven-year tribulation. As profound as it is that the first 69 weeks of years were fulfilled precisely, just as the prophecies were written by Daniel, who could possibly doubt that the last seven years will not come to pass? The reason it is important to validate the Book of Enoch, especially in these last days, is that it gives much more detail about what was very briefly mentioned in Genesis 6:1-2, “…the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and they took wives of all which they chose.” For many years, until I actually read the Book of Enoch, I thought “the sons of God” were simply godly men on the earth. Enoch explains that these “sons of God” were actually 200 of the fallen “watchers” (angels) that rebelled with Satan. Chuck Missler received a Congressional appointment to the US Naval Academy and then he served in the US Air Force. He later became Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles at Lowry Air Force Base. During an interview with LA Marzulli in 2011, Missler mentioned that, even though there are hoaxes clouding the facts, many UFO events/encounters are highly classified, such as the Roswell crash of 1947. He said these accounts “never see the light of day, because of ‘security.’” Missler spent about 30 years in the classified community, the intelligence community, and as the Chief Executive Officer of four different public defense contractors. He has been in the “deeply classified world,” as he puts it. He also said, “The UFO area enjoys a security classification that’s higher than our most sensitive warheads.” The security that surrounds Area 51 is possibly unsurpassed, even after 68 years. Art Bell, a former host on Coast to Coast AM, received a frantic call from a man claiming to work in Area 51. As the caller divulged information about Area 51, the radio station was kicked off the air entirely. You can actually listen to this incident, as it happened, on YouTube.com: https://youtu.be/ee3bld4lTG0. The caller was clearly shaken and he had been on a medical leave for about a week. He said, “What we are thinking of as aliens…they’re extra-dimensional beings that an earlier precursor of the space program made contact with. They are not what they claim to be. They have infiltrated a lot of aspects of the military establishment, particularly Area 51. The disasters that are coming…the military…(he is sobbing)…I am sorry…The government knows about them.” Fallen angels, referred to by Enoch and Daniel (4:13,17,23) as “watchers,” are certainly not aliens; they are, in fact, extra-dimensional heavenly beings. These fallen angels are powerfully at work in the last days and they will manifest more, as we draw closer to the Lord’s return. Remember, God’s angels manifested as men when they came down to escort Lot out of Sodom. More on this subject and the prophecies next month, God willing.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 4
Last month, I wrote about the importance of validating (in our hearts) the ancient Book of Enoch, not only because it is referred to in the Word of God, but Enoch’s prophecies provide greater insight to the last days, especially in terms of spiritual warfare. One good example of Enoch’s prophecies, that you won’t find in other scriptures, is Enoch 98:2, “For ye men shall put on more adornments than a woman, and colored garments more than a virgin in royalty and in grandeur and in power and in silver and in gold and purple, and in splendor and in food they shall be poured out as water. Therefore, they shall be wanting in doctrine and wisdom and they shall perish thereby together with their possessions and with all their glory and their splendor…”
“…more adornments than a woman…colored garments more than a virgin in royalty…and in food they shall be poured out as water…”
As we can see, Enoch’s prophecies, most likely the oldest Biblical texts written, are precisely accurate and detailed, which brings us back to Ezekiel’s vision and prophecy. Without having first read Enoch’s prophecies about the fallen watchers, Daniel’s references to watchers, as well as Ezekiel’s vision of living creatures and their wheels, like a “wheel in the middle of a wheel,” seems vague at best. In fact, historical paintings of Ezekiel’s vision depict wheels very similar to wagon wheels, one circling another – very antiquated. However, UFO sightings nowadays, statistically to the tune of about one every 10 minutes throughout the world, I believe gives us more of an idea of the type craft Ezekiel described, without having the modern vocabulary to even describe such things. I mean, how does Ezekiel describe modern spacecraft when those words didn’t even exist in his day? “A wheel in the middle of a wheel” is a good start. The Vatican astronomer, of the oldest Christ-centered church since the early Apostles (which has obviously gone into major heresy) speaks consistently of the soon to arrive “aliens” and he even said the church will “baptize them.” The Vatican operates their strongest telescope, “LUCIFER” (yes, they named it Lucifer, and they sing praises to Lucifer: https://youtu.be/dcpVrtv2t-M), on Mount Graham in Arizona. In fact, the Vatican has issued numerous video interviews with their Jesuit astronomer Guy J Consolmagno, and he has spoken frequently about the imminent appearance of aliens. Some believe the Catholic Church is gradually acclimating the world to other dimensional beings they have already met. Of late, the Vatican is worshiping Lucifer, claiming Jesus is his son! The Word of God tells us “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Interestingly, cave drawings and historical paintings depict spacecraft.
Throughout history, people have depicted “aliens” and craft in cave drawings and paintings. They obviously drew what they saw, or what was commonly understood in those days. As discussed previously, artifacts have been found and there are structures throughout the world that cannot be explained. However, when we take into account that Enoch wrote about the watchers marrying the daughters of men, and how they revealed heavenly mysteries to mankind, I believe it is accurate to attribute these modern wonders and paintings of crafts and beings to the fallen watchers. The Vatican has more information about the watchers than anyone else on earth, which we can study more closely next month, if the Lord tarries. God bless you.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 5
Last month, I wrote about the Vatican, their powerful telescope, “LUCIFER,” on Mount Graham and the fact that the Vatican seems to have more information about the fallen watchers than anyone else. The Vatican holds over 32,000 archives, ancient writings and artifacts, most of which they have never made public. The Vatican owns areas of Cusco and Paracas, Peru, where archeologists have unearthed giants with elongated skulls, many of which have reportedly been withheld from public view. Elongated skulls found in Paracas, which have previously been on display, but removed, have been dated approximately to 3,000 years old and DNA analysis of the skulls indicate they are a “completely new species,” according to Paracas Museum assistant director, researcher and author Brien Foerster. The geneticist who completed the DNA testing is quoted as saying, “Whatever the sample labeled 3A has come from – it had mtDNA with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far”(collective-evolution.com). The fact that geneticists said that elongated skulls from the remains of giants do not have human DNA, absolutely caught my attention. Genesis 6:1-4 tells us, “There were giants in the earth in those days and the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them…” The more research I did, the more pieces of a mysterious puzzle fit together. Some of the elongated skulls and skeletal remains found in Cusco, Paracas and various other parts of the world, were taken from the remains of giants. In summary, the fallen angels (son’s of God = watchers) took wives for themselves among men and they bore giants, many of which had elongated skulls. These skulls do not have human DNA. I finally had to come to grips with the fact that there are many UFO sightings, and I have even witnessed them myself, but still would not have believed what I have come to realize, except that Enoch wrote about the fallen angels, who are not only powerful, but they revealed heavenly secrets to men on earth. I also found that there are unexplained artifacts and ancient sites in the world, which reveal technological advancements far beyond what we know today. Some of these are found at Egyptian and Mayan pyramids and various other sites in Peru, where ~120-ton stone monuments are located, which were moved from about 40 miles from their quarry sites. There are many more unexplained wonders throughout the earth that I don’t have space here to delve into. Some of these ancient grounds and artifacts are hidden by governments and the Catholic church. Interestingly, as I completed my own research through various websites and videos, I came across a website published by LA Marzulli, who has done extensive research into this phenomenon and he is a Spirit-filled Christian! He has won awards for his research and films regarding UFO’s (fallen watchers), ancient artifacts, unexplained phenomenon and the remains of giants throughout the world. In fact, I was amazed to find that there seems to be a number of reputable Christians, among them Tom Horn, Chris Putnam, Steven Quayle, Chuck Missler and more, who believe fallen angels, watchers, are responsible for UFO sightings around the world. Some of these men have impressive credentials, which for some, only adds to their credibility. Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, I have come to understand and accept things I previously believed were heretical and outrageous ideas. Until God led me to read the Book of Enoch, I considered this information about UFOs so absurd, I wouldn’t even give it any consideration, even though I had seen them myself. I believe now that God allowed me to actually see UFOs to bring me where I am today. I began watching some of LA Marzulli’s videos on You Tube about Dr Roger Leir’s removal of foreign bodies implanted to 16 people, who said they had encountered “aliens.” The objects removed were composed of meteorological material, nothing found on earth, which could only be cut by laser. These objects emitted over 317 GHz (1 GHz equals 1 billion cycles per second. Your average home computer has about 3 GHz). Among several YouTube videos I watched regarding Dr Leir’s surgeries to extract these foreign bodies from individuals, two of the videos blacked out my computer and I was not able to continue watching them (they were censored). Dr Leir entered a hospital last year to have outpatient surgery performed on his foot. He entered a restroom at the hospital and never came out alive. His cause of death has not been released. These facts have been reported by reputable individuals, a surgeon (now deceased) and several Christian men. I have more to report next month about the fallen watchers and the upcoming “lying wonders” (2 Thessalonians 2:9) Apostle Paul warned us about.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 6
The Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Philippi and said, “The mystery of iniquity does already work, only he who now letteth (original Greek – detains) will let (detain), until he be taken out of the way (until the church is taken up out of the way. Similarly, the destruction of Sodom was delayed, until Lot was rescued from that wicked city Genesis 19). And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming; even him, whose coming is after the work of satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” 2 Thessalonians 2:7-10. I started this multi-part series with Ezekiel’s description of God descending from heaven, with His cherubim surrounding Him in “wheels,” found in Ezekiel 1. While summarizing this study of the fallen angels, I am going to go over Ezekiel’s description of these cherubim and their wheels once again, providing more detail than what was written in Part 1 of this series (and I will include my own notes): “I looked and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures, and this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man, and every one had four faces and every one had four wings (these are the same cherubims Ezekiel saw in chapters 10 and 11), and their feet were straight feet and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass. And they (the living creatures) had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides, and they four had their faces and their wings. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward (they didn’t stop, or turn, but went in any direction immediately without turning around). As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion on the right side, and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces, and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. And they went every one straight forward, whither the spirit was to go, they went, and they turned not when they went. As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps; it went up and down among the living creatures and the fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning. And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning (I have witnessed this movement in UFOs myself). Now, as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the color of beryl (variations in color, but also transparent to translucent glassy mineral) and they four had one likeness; and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides and they turned not as they went. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful, and their rings were full of eyes round about them four. And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them, and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go, and the wheels were lifted up over against them, for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. When those went, these went, and when those stood, these stood, and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them, for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. And the likeness of the firmament (sphere) upon the heads of the living creature was as the color of the terrible crystal (transparent, as in glass – like a window) stretched forth over their heads above. And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other; every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side their bodies. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of a host. When they stood, they let down their wings” Ezekiel 1:4-25. The Word of God describes angelic beings. If we believe in God, we must also believe in His angelic beings, as well as those who fell with satan. I am out of space for now, but will have more on the fallen angels next month, God willing.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 7
Last month, we reviewed Ezekiel’s description of the “living creatures,” cherubim, and their “wheels,” which he saw come down from heaven under the throne of God (Ezekiel 1). Angels and cherubim are described in the Bible. We also know through the scriptures that a third of the angelic host fell with satan when he defied God (Isaiah 14:12; Revelation 12:4-9); and being celestial, having fallen from God’s own heavenly host, satan and his angels have power. It also appears that these angelic beings travel by elaborate craft, according to Ezekiel’s vision. With these facts in mind, let’s run forward to the present. UFO sightings are reported globally and more frequently as each year passes. Some countries have released their UFO files, and the Vatican hierarchy can’t say enough about their imminent expectation of alien visitors. The Vatican holds more ancient information about fallen watchers than any organization on the planet. They have published choirs singing praises to “Lucifer,” whose “Son is Jesus” (this is their proclamation) on You Tube! The Vatican’s strongest telescope on Mount Graham, Arizona, is named “LUCIFER;” how fitting! Some report that they have had “encounters” with fallen watchers and are now convinced that Lucifer is God and he will descend with his “heavenly host” shortly. The latest Pope, Frances, the 112th Pope, is said to be the last Pope this side of the Lord’s return, according to the Malachy Prophecies, which have been accurate so far. In last month’s newsletter, I emphasized Ezekiel’s detailed description of the fact that “the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels” (Ezekiel 1:20-21). He repeated this description in both verses 20 and 21 of Ezekiel 1. I found this description very intriguing after I heard Art Bell’s (1997) interview with Colonel Philip J Corso on Coast to Coast (https://youtu.be/1Uv9DlkM7K0). Col Corso has a very impressive background, having worked as the Army’s Chief of Foreign Technology Division (FTD) at the Pentagon (1961) and Chief of Research and Development. The very talented Dr Wernher Von Braun, who was later dubbed “the father of rocketry,” originally worked in Col Corso’s division. Von Braun was a Nazi brought into the US from Germany through Project Paperclip after the Holocaust, because of his superior knowledge of rocket science. Col Corso admitted in recent years that he saw a dead “alien” from the Roswell crash, which resulted in a government coverup, and he divulged details of the event in his book The Day After Roswell. I was fascinated by Ezekiel’s description, “the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels,” especially after hearing Col Corso’s interview with Art Bell, when Corso said, “Research and Development was repeatedly unsuccessful in replicating the space ship for quite some time, until they discovered that the beings were part of the spacecraft. Their bodies were actually the guidance and propulsion systems for the craft through electromagnetism.” Col Corso said he discussed this technology with Dr Wernher Von Braun himself. The entire interview had nothing to do with the Bible, prophecy, Christianity, or anything at all pertaining to God’s Holy Word. I have no idea whether either one, Art Bell, or Col Corso, is a Christian, but according to all that was discussed during the more than two-hour video, I heard nothing about God, or prophecy. I doubt either one of these men were aware of Ezekiel’s vision, otherwise, they certainly had an excellent opportunity to tie in the ancient writings penned thousands of years ago with the technology discovered by Col Corso’s team of scientists at Research and Development. In fact, I have no idea whether anyone has ever discovered this link, beside myself. I have never heard it before, but these are strikingly parallel descriptions given first by an ancient prophet thousands of years ago, then by a modern era rocket scientist! I almost grudgingly came to the conclusion that UFOs were real, after reading Ezekiel’s description of cherubim and their “wheels,” together with the fact that I have seen UFOs, some as recently as 2014. After I finally understood that the Book of Enoch is a hidden portion of God’s Holy Word, and I read the divine book, I not only believed in UFOs, I realized they are a part of God’s created beings and are used to transport cherubim and apparently watchers. God has not only brought all of these revelations to me just recently, but countries all over the world have released their UFO files in the last several years, and the Vatican’s astronomer expects “alien” visitors any time and he said the Catholic Church will baptize “aliens,” which I firmly believe are fallen watchers and are integral to the “lying wonders” of the last days that the Apostle Paul wrote about: “…whose coming is after the work of satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness…” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10. I am out of space. To be continued…God willing.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 8
Last month, I wrote about the astonishing things discovered by Colonel Philip Corso’s team of Research and Development scientists, which match exactly with Ezekiel’s description of the cherubim and their wheels in Ezekiel 1. Some might argue that the beings spotted inside of UFOs today are not satanic beings. Some believe the “sons of God,” who married the daughters of men, described in Genesis 6:1-5, are actually the sons of godly men. I used to believe that interpretation. If we compare the description of the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:2, with the “sons of God” in Job 1:6, who presented themselves before the Lord, we find that in the original Hebrew (Interlinear Hebrew Bible), the words used to describe the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:2, are the same Hebrew words describing the “sons of God” (English transliteration – B’nai Ha Elohim) in Job 1:6, who were angels presenting themselves before God in Job’s day. At that time, satan also went before the Lord and accused Job of being imperfect (Job 1:6-11). After researching the English Bible for the words, “sons of God,” and comparing these words in the original Hebrew, there can be no mistake; the reference made in Genesis 6:2 literally means, “angels (watchers) saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose.” The Bible doesn’t tell us that godly men were in heaven presenting themselves before God, and the words here refer to the angels, specifically the watchers, who were supposed to be “watching” over mankind and interceding before God in their behalf (Enoch 15), not defiling them! The details given by God to Enoch (Enoch 15) explain why the “sons of God” presented themselves before God in those days. According to the Book of Enoch, they were watching over and interceding in behalf of God’s people; before Jesus, the Lamb of God, came to earth, was slain and rose again to make intercession before the Father in our behalf (Romans 8:34). In order to grasp the full impact of what happened in those days, we should take a close look at Genesis 6 and Enoch 15 to examine the course of events that occurred when the watchers (fallen angels) took the daughters of men as wives, and giants were born unto them. “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God (original Hebrew – bni – e Aleim = watchers) saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants (Hebrew – e nphlim [English transliteration – Nephilim]) in the earth in those days; and also, after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men (original Hebrew – e adm = human), and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown (referring to giants). And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth and it grieved Him at His heart. And the Lord said, ”I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” Genesis 6:1-2,4-7. Now, if we revert back to the ancient Book of Enoch (15), we find this account concerning what God Himself said to Enoch about the fallen angels and their sons (giants, or Nephilim) born to them of human women, when the watchers sent Enoch to intercede before God in their behalf, after they had sinned with human women: “Fear not, Enoch, you righteous man and scribe of righteousness; approach hither and hear My voice, and go say to the watchers of heaven, who have sent you to intercede for them: ‘You should intercede for men, and not men for you. Wherefore have you left the high, holy and eternal heaven, and lain with women and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men…and begotten giants (Nephilim) as your sons? And though you were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten children with the blood of flesh…and the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies, because they are born from men and from the holy watchers…And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle and work destruction on the earth and cause trouble. They take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst and cause offenses. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against women, because they have proceeded from them.’” There is a difference between fallen angels and evil spirits. More next month…

“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 9
Last month I shared what God told Enoch (15) about the giants born to the fallen watchers (angels) and human women, and how evil spirits proceeded from them and continue to wreak havoc upon the earth. The giants, otherwise known as Nephilim in Hebrew (what we also define today as a “hybrids,” not fully human), were extremely vicious in Enoch’s day. The Book of Enoch, chapter 7 reveals, “And they became pregnant (human women) and they bore great giants (Nephilim), whose height was three thousand ells, who consumed all the acquisitions of men, and when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. They began to sin against birds, beasts, reptiles and fish and devour one another’s flesh and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.” I placed emphasis on “lawless” here, because the antichrist is also referred to the “lawless” one, “For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness – original Greek) already works, only he who now letteth (restrains – original Greek), will let (restrain), until he be taken out of the way (catching up of the saints [1Thessalonians 4:16-18]; and then shall that wicked (one – antichrist) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, even him, whose coming is after the working of satan with all power, signs and lying wonders” 2 Thessalonians 2:7-9. It is obvious here, and by other descriptions of the antichrist in God’s Word, that the antichrist will have the spirits of the Nephilim working through him. The antichrist will arrive on the earth to conquer and devour men (Revelation 6:2-8), which is exactly what the Nephilim did in Enoch’s day. When God gave the Children of Israel the land of Canaan, which included Jericho, He instructed them to slay all of the inhabitants, including men, women and children (Joshua 6:20-21). That may sound very cruel, but there was a spiritual reason for that. When God told Moses to send men to spy out the land of Canaan, they returned with a report that there were “giants” in the land, who “eat up the inhabitants” (Numbers 13:31-33). Joshua led the Children of Israel into Jericho to slay Nephilim, and those born to them, because they were extremely evil, eating people and drinking blood. God did not want the Children of Israel to be defiled, or devoured by any of them. It is also interesting that the Native American Indians hand down historical events to their children by storytelling. These stories are carefully rehearsed, word-for-word, so as to keep the accuracy of ancient history. I watched a video put out by LA Marzulli just recently, which included his interview with a Hopi Indian Chief. The chief told LA that the Indians killed giants and the stories have been told about it for centuries. He said most people believe that when Indians raised up a hand and said, “Hau,” they were greeting one another in that fashion. He explained that it was common for the Indians to put up a hand to show that they didn’t have six fingers. This was how they identified those who were Nephilim! The Bible tells us that the giants had six fingers and six toes (2 Samuel 21:20). It seems probable that since the Israelites were killing off the giants in Canaan, they fled in ships to this continent. In 1934, the Evening Post reported what may have been the tallest giant ever discovered. The skeleton was discovered in India. “CALCUTTA, Aug. 8 – A discovery of world-wide importance is reported from the village of Paintiha in the Jubbulpore district, where a giant human skeleton was unearthed from the bank of a river. It was 31.5 feet long, with legs 10 feet long.” Vol. CXVIII, Issue 34, August 9, 1934, P.13. Other ancient giant skeletons have been found all over America, some with elongated skulls and six fingers on their hands, but the Smithsonian takes possession of them and they are never heard from again. Academia will “gnash their teeth” on anyone, or anything, that challenges their evolution paradigm, which helps them dissuade the masses from believing in the Divine Creator; and so is true the scripture, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” Romans 1:22. In the meantime, Christian researcher and author LA Marzulli took a trip to Paracas himself and explored the elongated skulls with Brien Forster, who is a top expert on the Paracus skulls. Forster sent DNA samples from the elongated skulls for testing, and when he received the results, he sent an email to LA on February 4, 2014, as follows (excerpt): “It had mtDNA with mutations unknown in any human.” You will likely not see this information in any secular publication, but only conservative and Christian news outlets, because the spirit of antichrist is working through these agnostics. I am going to tie all of this in with Ezekiel’s vision and the last days, but I am out of space for now – to be continued next month, God willing.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 10
Last month, I wrote about the Paracas skull DNA findings, which revealed the mtDNA was not human. For decades, scientists have proclaimed these skulls were cradle-boarded (purposefully deformed gradually from birth). There are problems with that hypothesis, in that elongated skulls found in numerous places throughout Paracas and Cusco, Peru, have only one parietal plate, and some were too young to have achieved the enormous size through cradle-boarding. Normal human skulls have two parietal plates. Joe Taylor, who is the curator of the Mount Blanco Museum in Plano, Texas, accompanied LA Marzulli during a trip to Paracas, Peru, for the purpose of casting one of the elongated skulls. The skull was casted and the cast was brought back to the US and later examined by Dr Roger Leir. The following are excerpts from Dr Leir’s findings: “Someone would have a very difficult time convincing me that this is a human skull. It has too many bizarre abnormalities. The first thing that struck me was the ‘hump’ (protrusion) at the posterior-most aspect of the frontal bone that runs along the entire top of the frontal bone, just before it joins the parietal bone in its suture there. This is NOT normal, very abnormal. There is no evidence whatsoever that there ever were two parietal bones – not even the slightest remnant of a suture line. Unbelievably abnormal! The nasal bone is a disaster area. There is a horribly deviated septum. This ‘being’ would have had a very hard time breathing through his nose, if he could do so at all. I have never seen such a gap in the two front teeth. This is highly abnormal, not only the sheer size of the gap, but more importantly, the bone structure of the maxilla and alveolar processes is completely abnormal, with no allowance for the two front teeth, as the bone actually has a semicircle-like deficit (rise) in it. I shudder to think what this thing would look like when it smiled.” These statements were not actually attributed to Dr Leir (for privacy reasons) in LA Marzulli’s book, On The Trail of the Nephilim, but I know these statements were made by him after he examined the Paracas skull cast. Let’s move on to another ancient marvel located in Sacsayhuaman, Peru. At this location, there are megalithic rocks, some weighing as much as nearly 200 tons (see photos above). Each stone has a unique shape; no two are alike. They have been hewn and placed together with such exactitude, there is no mortar holding them in place. One stone is laid upon another, cut and laid together so tightly precisioned, there are little to no air gaps! Albeit, the stones vary in shape, but they are all interlocking. Not only are they interlocking, but the stones are all laid to the extent that the walls lean inward to stabilize the massive structures. These stones, weighing many tons, were cut into shapes anywhere from about 3 to 10 feet wide and 5 feet long. In spite of their enormous size and weight, they are precise in their placement next to one another, to such a degree that one would be hard pressed to push a hair between them. Expert architects are baffled as to how these massive stones were hewn and laid so precisely, while the Inca were known to only possess bronze chisels and stone hammers. To top it all off, the stones were quarried at a location about 40 miles away at an altitude approximately 2,000 feet below their current location. “Politically correct” tour guides explain that the Inca built these walls about 3,000 years ago. Nevertheless, the local villagers say that the Inca told their ancestors that “giants” made the stones and built the walls. It all points back to the Nephilim, folks. Why do archaeologists today want to credit the Inca and their base tools with such feats? Most are atheists, relying on their intellect to be their god, and they would rather fantasize their own theories, as to admit these things are beyond our realm, or Darwinianism. An excellent example of today’s academic censorship is summarized in a video titled Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed by Ben Stein (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5EPymcWp-g). A segment of the video shows how God-less intellectuals are even grasping at the theory that aliens created us, because they can’t explain how life began. It is truly amazing what the “scholars” come up with in order to back their atheistic Darwinian hypotheses, such as, “Life began on the backs of crystals,” which one professor stated (in the video above). They will give the credit of our miraculous existence, human life in its complexity, to just about anything – except the One and only true and living God Almighty! The Holy Word of God tells us, “In that hour, Jesus rejoiced in Spirit and said, I thank You, oh Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes; even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight” Luke 10:21…until next month.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 11
Last month, I wrote about the Paracas skulls and Dr Roger Leir’s assessment of the mold of one of the skulls he examined. He wrote of his findings, “Someone would have a difficult time convincing me that this is a human skull.” A DNA sample also taken from one of the skulls revealed nonhuman mtDNA. Additionally, I wrote about the ancient megalithic stone walls of Sacsayhuaman, Peru, which baffle modern architects. Local villagers say their ancestors told them that the walls were built by giants. There are actually 18 references to giants in the Bible, also known as Nephilim in Hebrew. These were the offspring of fallen angels and human women (Genesis 6:1-4), so the Paracas skulls, revealing nonhuman DNA, are likely the same Nephilim referred to in Genesis (6) and the Book of Enoch (7). Nephil is the root word meaning “fall.” The word Nephilim in Hebrew also refers to those who fell. The Book of Enoch tells us that the departed souls of the Nephilim are evil spirits that cause havoc in the earth and they are doomed souls, which cannot be redeemed (Enoch 15-16; Jude 6; 2 Peter 2:4). Jesus told His disciples, as He explained the events that would precede His return, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” Matthew 24:37. What was happening during Noah’s day? Genesis (6) and Enoch (7) tell us that fallen watchers took human wives and bore giants just prior to the flood. Enoch explained that these giants (Nephilim) “devoured mankind, eating their flesh and drinking their blood.” Does this sound familiar today? As we see the antichrist kingdom rising through the likes of the Islamic State (IS), and other Muslim terrorist organizations, stories have been told time and time again of their militants literally cutting out the hearts of their enemies and eating them raw (see images above). In Syria, they even set up butcher shops to sell the body parts of Christians and other slain enemies. Former Muslim Brotherhood terrorist Walid Shoebat, who converted to Christianity, said this has been a practice among Muslims for centuries, not just during the recent wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. As an aside, I have to take the opportunity here to mention that a Christian genocide has been taking place in the Middle East. They are being slaughtered in the most brutal ways we could imagine, even Christian children are suffering the same cruel martyrdom. Some of the newsletters have contained very graphic material about their sufferings, and I have even heard directly from the pastor of a local church that these newsletters are offensive and he will not read them. I will just say that unless we know the truth, we don’t know how to pray, and if we fail to pray for those facing martyrdom, those fleeing for their lives and our Christian brothers and sisters in bonds, we will face God’s judgment for our neglect of the same. The Holy Word of God tells us, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2. “And whether one member [of the body of Christ] suffers, all the members suffer; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice” 1 Corinthians 12:26. How is it that we can pray earnestly to God for these who are suffering, unless we know of their suffering? We need to pray every day for these. There could come a time when we and our families face such horror for the sake of Christ. The Book of Enoch (15-16) tells us that when the Nephilim died, their evil spirits remained on the earth to wreak havoc; and the Bible tells us that some people are possessed by these spirits (Matthew 4:24). The antichrist kingdom is rising, an indicator that we are living in the last days, and Muslim terrorists are possessed with Nephilim spirits to perpetrate the same kind of horror they have committed throughout history. Nephilim spirits are territorial, according to Biblical accounts. Jesus cast demons out of people in Syria (Matthew 4:24), the same area that the Islamic State is wreaking terror and devouring the flesh of men, just as the ancient Nephilim did in Enoch’s day and in Noah’s time. Can we not see the correlation between the ancient Nephilim and Muslim terrorists today? The Prophet Daniel quoted the angel Gabriel, “Then he said unto me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and chastened yourself before your God, your words were heard and I have come because of your words; but the prince (fallen angel) of the kingdom of Persia (Iran today) withstood me twenty-one days, but lo, Michael, one of the chief princes (God’s angel), came to help me and I remained there with the kings of Persia” Daniel 10:12-13. Gabriel was sent to respond to Daniel’s prayers, but the evil “prince of Persia” fought against Gabriel for 21 days. Persia (Iran) is still the greatest supporter of terrorism in the Middle East. The Bible says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12. To be continued, God willing.
“Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days” Part 12
Last month, I wrote about Nephilim spirits operating in the world throughout history and how they inhabit the antichrist kingdom (Islamic Caliphate) rising before our eyes. We are literally at war with Nephilim spirits operating through Muslim terrorists today. The Prophet Daniel wrote something very enlightening about the last days. He prophesied about the very last kingdom to take power on earth, “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things; and as iron that breaks all these, it shall break in pieces and bruise; and whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with the miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And whereas you saw iron mixed with clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay” Daniel 2:41-43. Daniel wrote here about his revelation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a large statue of a man, and each part of the statue represented a world kingdom from Nebuchadnezzar’s day, through the time of the last kingdom at the end of days. No one in Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom could interpret his dream, but Daniel, the man of God. The interpretation of the Word of God and prophecy is given only by God, and the ungodly doesn’t understand it (Daniel 2:27-28; 2 Timothy 3:7). We are entering an era of advanced technology, as cyborgs (part human/part machine) and chimeras (part human/part animal) are being created. This “mingling” is abominable in the sight of God (Enoch 7, 15-16; Genesis 6), and it is a sign that we are absolutely living in the last days preceding Christ’s return, according to Bible prophecy (Daniel 2:43; Matthew 24:37). Now, we are at the crux of this entire study. Thousands (7,732) of UFO sightings were reported in the US alone in 2013; there are many more worldwide and the numbers increase yearly. Some can be explained, but many others are bizarre and have been reported by residents in entire regions, as well as by government officials. For example, a huge UFO was seen by thousands of residents in Phoenix, including the governor of Arizona at that time, J Fife Symington. They attest to the fact that they saw a “mother ship” UFO on March 13, 1997. An airline pilot also reported he saw the craft, describing it as “humongous.” He said it passed right above his plane. Witnesses said the craft made no noise and it was nothing like anyone had ever seen, at least nothing created in this world. There is a documentary about the sighting on YouTube.com: UFOs: I Know What I Saw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGMGOdKOPKk). While more UFOs are reported throughout the world every year, thousands of people all over the world have reported very similar “alien” abduction stories. Dr David Jacobs, the foremost expert in alien abductions, has interviewed many abductees, who have told him nearly identical scenarios. Dr Jacobs is an agnostic, but after hearing the accounts of abductees, he is so convinced that many people are experiencing abductions by aliens that he said, “I am in despair.” He said he fears for the future of his grandchildren because of alien biological experiments. The Bible tells us that “…the prince of the power of the air (is) the spirit that works in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). God’s people are protected from this through the name of Jesus. In the meantime, the great harlot, Catholic church, MYSTERY BABYLON (Revelation 18), has openly proclaimed, “extraterrestrials are our brothers.” Catholics in the Vatican are also singing praises to “Lucifer.” The Bible tells us concerning the last days, “Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines, pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11. Remember those words, “fearful sights” and “Great signs from heaven,” as we approach the return of the Lord. The Bible also says, “There shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:24. According to Bible prophecy, the great end time deception will appear in the form of “great signs and wonders,” “fearful sights,” and “from heaven.” The message here is BEWARE; don’t fall for it! It is imperative that we keep our eyes fixed on God’s Holy Word only and what it has to say. Christ will soon catch up the saints (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), but the world will proclaim that the “aliens” took us, and I believe the great deception of the tribulation will begin. Jesus said (twice – for emphasis – in Matthew 24) regarding the last days, “Many false prophets shall rise and deceive many” Matthew 24:11. “There shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:24.
“…To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life…” Revelation 2:7 –Pt 4
Last month, we studied the Lord’s commendation to the church in Philadelphia. The church of the Laodiceans is the seventh and last church Jesus sent a message to. 7) Laodiceans: “To the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, These things says the Amen (original Greek – Trustworthy One), the faithful and true Witness, the beginning (original Greek – Head) of the creation of God: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would rather you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing (spiritually), and know not that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked (spiritually); I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich and may be clothed with white raiment, and the shame of your nakedness (sin) does not appear, and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see (spiritually). As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous therefore and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with Me. To him that overcomes, I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, even as I also overcame and have set down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” Revelation 3:14-22. Jesus said to those who serve Him half-heartedly, He will spit them out of His mouth! He is so disgusted with that condition that He said He would rather they be cold, not serving Him, backslidden and not making any pretence. We might think in our carnal minds that God would rather see us at least make a half-hearted attempt to serve Him, as to not serve Him at all, but that is obviously not the case. God’s ways are far above our ways; His thoughts are far above our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). God would rather the half-hearted not be among the saints that are serving Him with all of their hearts, because 1) God rejects half-heartedness 2) People like that do more damage to hurt, discourage and cause problems among the saints, than those who might have problems, but at least they are wholeheartedly serving the Lord. God doesn’t need problematic, trouble-making hypocrites in the church causing more discord, than they are receiving help for themselves, because their hearts aren’t in the right place. Please understand, God isn’t rejecting those with problems, those who are weak and struggling; He rejects those who are proud, believing themselves to be right, when they are wrong; those who refuse to stop compromising, rather than understand their weaknesses and seek to gain strength among the brethren. There is a very big difference between these two characteristics. One is proud, refusing to acknowledge their sin/weakness; while the other is humble, willing to admit their faults, failures and sins and repent. Repentance and humility are key to gaining not only God’s forgiveness, but His divine favor. There were a lot of good things going on in the five churches that Jesus actually reproved, many wonderful things in fact; but the issue is, that regardless of how many good and wonderful things are going on in the churches, and no matter how good a person can be, if there is evil somewhere in that life, in that heart, it takes away all the good in the end, if the sin has not been dealt with. This is the message loud and clear. If that isn’t clear in your mind, please review the study again. Further, Paul wrote to the church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 5) and he reproved them for not handling a young man steeped in sin at that church (he was sleeping with his father’s wife!). The church wasn’t saying or doing anything about it. Perhaps he was a good tither/donor, or he had close friends that just didn’t want to confront him. Paul said, “Your glorying is not good. Don’t you know that a little leaven (leaven = sin) leavens the whole lump?” 1 Corinthians 5:6. In other words, no matter what good this man is doing in the church, this one sin will send him to hell, if it isn’t dealt with. In fact, Paul told them to turn him over to satan for the destruction of his flesh (illness unto death), so his eternal soul might be saved. When people hit the deathbed, if that’s literally what it takes, they will usually repent, if they know the truth, which this one did. If you have a loved one overtaken by sin, warn them, and if they won’t get their lives right with God, pray for God to bring them to the point they will repent, even if it means suffering in this life. It would be better for them to repent during a grave illness, than to end up in hell fire forever! We can forego praying that ultimate prayer, but in the meantime, as people continue further and further in sin, they become more calloused, until finally God may turn them over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1:28), because they have ignored their conscience so long. We need to pray for the ultimate life changing experience for that soul, before it’s too late! We have a responsibility before God to warn them. The longer we wait, the greater the risk that loved one could end up lost forever. That’s too great a risk to remain quiet.
“To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life” Revelation 2:7 -Pt 3
Last month, we studied the Lord’s admonition to the churches in Thyatira and Sardis, leaving off at His compliment to the church in Philadelphia, one of only two churches the Lord did not reprove. 6) Philadel-phia: “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, These things says He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the key of David, He who opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens. I know your works; behold, I have set before you an open door and no man can shut it, for you have a little strength and have kept My Word and have not denied My name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie, behold, I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly; hold fast what you have, that no man take your crown. To him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more, and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and I will write upon him My new name” Revelation 3:7-12. This is wonderful. I can’t help but get excited when I read the Lord’s promises here to the overcoming saints. I specifically emphasized His promise above: “I have set before you an open door.” Is that not amazing? He is saying, “I know your ‘works’… you have a little strength and ‘have kept My Word’ and ‘have not denied My name.’” God promised to literally give us an “open door,” if we will simply make it a point to do the work he has called us to do, keep His Word and not deny His name! God’s people, who obey Him, don’t ask for Mercedes Benzes, palaces and Rolex watches; but we do ask Him to remove obstacles from our lives, protect us and our loved ones, meet our needs according to His riches in glory, and those types of good things. He will not deny us! A lot of people in this world today have proclaimed that no one can live holy; it’s impossible; God doesn’t even require it! Here is a response in the Word of God for those excuses: “Because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy” 1 Peter 1:16. Here is another one: “The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should liver soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world” Titus 2:11-12. God also gave me this bit of truth and I recently wrote a Message about it on two websites called, Eat This and Die. As I contemplated the doctrine of eternal security (Calvinism) that is so prevalent in churches today, and the fact that so many people deny that God has called us to holiness, the Lord brought this to my mind (I’m not smart enough to come up with it myself): How many of those same people would eat a peanut, that could kill them, if they were allergic to peanuts? I said, Lord, they would all surely stay away from peanuts, no problem! So, they can stay away from peanuts, or even a list of foods that could kill them, if they are allergic, but they MUST sin? I believe the Lord might very well ask souls on Judgment Day, who will make all sorts of excuses as to why they just HAD to live in a state of willful sin, “Would you have eaten a peanut, if you knew you were allergic to them and it could cause you to die?” They will probably answer, “No, Lord, I certainly would have died!” “Did you not read in the scriptures that My Word said, ‘The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord’ (Romans 6:23); and ‘The fearful and unbelieving, the abominable, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8)?’” “I heard that, Lord, but we all must sin; it’s our nature!” “Did you not read in the scriptures that My Word said, ‘Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again’ (John 3:7); and ‘Therefore, if any man be in Christ Jesus, he is a new creature; old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new’ (2 Corinthians 5:17)? Apparently, you gave more heed to the effects of a peanut, than you did to My Holy Word!” “Then I will profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you that work iniquity” Matthew 7:23. I really believe the dialogue might just go something like that on Judgment Day. What happens after the Lord makes that proclamation is what is the most dreadful! “So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” Matthew 13:49-50. We are only here for a moment, compared to eternity. What will you do for that “moment?” Heed God’s Holy Word and live; or shrug it off – regard it less than a peanut – and end up in hell forever? God does not lie. The choice is very real!
“To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life” Revelation 2:7 -Pt 2
I started a study in Revelation 2 last month, which includes revelations and admonitions given to the Apostle John for the seven churches in Asia, and for all saints thereafter, as they apply to us. We already covered what Jesus told John to write to the churches at Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos; and now we will continue with what He had to say to the remaining four churches: 4) Thyatira: “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write, These things saith the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire and His feet are like fine brass: I know your works, charity, service, faith, patience and your works, and the last being more than the first. Notwithstanding, I have a few things against you, because you suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit fornication and eat things sacrificed to idols. I gave her space to repent of her fornication, and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her, into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the reins and hearts, and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But I say unto you, and to the rest at Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine and which have not known the depths of satan, as they speak, I will put no other burden upon you. But that which you have already, hold fast till I come” Revelation 2:18-25. Too many women today strut around, even in the churches, with low cut blouses, high cut skirts and wear makeup like clowns, decked out with ornaments. God resists the proud and instructs us to be clothed with humility (1 Peter 5:5). If we go back to the story of Jezebel, just before the dogs ate her in Jezreel, as God said they would because she slew the prophets of the Lord; Jehu was riding into Jezreel, and when Jezebel heard of it, “she painted her face and tired (arranged) her hair and looked out the window” 2 Kings 9:30. She had every intention of seducing Jehu, but he was there on God’s business, and one of the things he had to do was see that Jezebel was killed! He had a man toss her out of that high window she had been looking out of, and when she hit the ground, dogs ate her! Seductive women in the churches, like Jezebel, need to repent and live modestly (1 Timothy 2:9-15), or else God will cast them into tribulation, along with anyone else committing adultery with her (Jesus said to lust after a woman is to commit adultery with her Matthew 5:28). God even said he would kill her children! It seems He would rather take them, than have them grow up to be like her and end up in hell! 5) Sardis: “Unto the angel of the church in Sardis write, These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, I know your works, that you have a name, that you live, but you are dead (spiritually). Be watchful and strengthen the things that remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember, therefore, how you have received and heard, and hold fast and repent. If therefore you shall not watch (for the Lord’s return), I will come as a thief and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names, even in Sardis, who have not defiled their garments and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment and I will not blot out his name out of the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My father and before the angels. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” Revelation 3:1-6. This church has some members that have forgotten what they have learned and they are spiritually near death. The Lord said He found imperfections in them, but He didn’t elaborate. Only we ourselves know what stands between us and God, whether it be too much involvement in the world, with little to no time for God; whether it be a failure to perhaps give of our abundance, or increase; or if we have simply neglected to pray and communicate with God; only the Lord and that individual know for certain. The Lord said, “strengthen the things that remain, that are ready to die.” In other words, get right with God now, do whatever it is He wants us to do, and watch for His return, lest He “come as a thief” and leave us behind! There are two more churches remaining in this study that the Lord sent messages to. I have no doubt that what He said will apply to our self-examination, as well as the seven churches in Asia. These were among the last messages in the Word of God given directly from the Lord to the churches awaiting His return, which obviously apply to us today. If we are awaiting the Lord’s return, we should be very interested in some of the last Words He gave to us, as I believe they are critical in our preparedness, as we anxiously await His appearance. Next month, this study should conclude, God willing. God bless you.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

“…To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life…” Revelation 2:7
An angel appeared to John the Revelator on the Isle of Patmos, where he was banished for his testimony of Christ Jesus. Revelations were given to John about the great tribulation to come; yet, before those revelations were given, Jesus had a message for each of the seven churches that were in Asia at the time, messages that can also apply to us today. The messages were warnings to five of the seven churches, to either get right, or face exclusion from His Kingdom. 1) His message to the church at Ephesus: “I know your works, your labor and your patience, how you can’t bear those who are evil, and you have tried those who say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars. You have borne and have patience and, for My name’s sake, have labored and have not fainted. Nevertheless, I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love. Remember, therefore, from whence you have fallen and repent, and do the first works (repent and start over), or else I will come unto you quickly and will remove your candlestick out of his place, except you repent. This you have, that you have hated the deeds of the Nicolaitanes (hypocrites), which I also hate. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches: To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” Revelation 2:1-7. The Lord commended the church at Ephesus in many respects, except that they left their “first love,” Jesus. Apparently other things were taking first place in their lives, and the Lord didn’t have first priority. God knows our hearts; we can’t hide anything from Him. If we want to overcome and make it to heaven, we must put God first in our lives; we must make it a priority to pray daily, to read God’s Word daily and we must always ask ourselves in every situation, “What would Jesus do?” 2) The church in Smyrna was commended: “Unto the church in Smyrna write: These things says the First and the Last, which was dead, and is alive; I know your works, tribulation and poverty (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of satan. Fear none of those things which you shall suffer; behold, the devil shall cast some of you in prison, that you may be tried, and you shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches: He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death (Revelation 20:14) Revelation 2:11. All was well with the church in Smyrna. Jesus encouraged them to be faithful even unto death, and He promised them a “crown of life.” 3) Pergamos: “And to the angel of the church of Pergamos write, These things saith He which has the sharp sword with two edges: I know your works and where you dwell, even where satan’s seat is, and you hold fast My name and have not denied My faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where satan dwells; but I have a few things against you, because you have there those that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and commit fornication. So have you also those that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come unto you quickly and I will fight against them with the sword of My mouth” Revelation 2:12-16. The Lord commended the church of Pergamos for not denying the faith, even though they lived in an evil city, but He found among them the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to take of ungodly wealth and commit unlawful sexual sins. They also ate meat sacrificed to idols, which God forbids, and they had members who believed like the Nicolaitanes, those who compromised and had no problem intermingling with the world, while holding out that they were Christians at the same time. The overcoming saints will not love money (make use of it, yes, but not obsess over it), will not commit fornication (unlawful intimacy outside of a marriage relationship [man and woman]) and they will not partake of the sins of the world, but rather live holy unto God. The next warning will be given to the church in Thyatira, but that summary will have to wait until next month, as this study continues, God willing. The admonitions given to the churches in John’s day apply to us today, in that God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He didn’t require of those churches anything more than He requires of us today, to love Him first, with all of our hearts (Jeremiah 29:13) and keep His commandments. These teachings of Jesus certainly do not coincide with Calvinism.
“The Lord shall cause His glorious voice to be heard…” Isaiah 30:30
We are now living in the last days, according to Bible prophecy, and the Lord is speaking to us through signs and wonders. The Lord told Jeremiah the Prophet, “Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind; it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return until He has executed it and until He has performed the thoughts of His heart; in the latter days you shall consider it perfectly” Jeremiah 23:19-20. As I studied the Book of Jeremiah recently, and I read this prophecy, I sure enough considered the prophecy regarding the super hurricanes that hit the Atlantic this year. The 2017 hurricane season was an extremely destructive one, breaking records, with the highest total accumulated cyclone energy (ACE), the greatest categories (two 5s; two 4s; two 3s), the costliest in recorded history, with damages estimated at more than $369 billion, and there were 882 fatalities. God may not be speaking to most of us directly in an audible voice, but He is speaking to us through Bible prophecy. The more I study God’s Word, the more I recognize end times prophecies that have been fulfilled in our generation. As Jeremiah forewarned rebellious Israel that famine, pestilence and death would befall them because of their idolatry, fornication and their lying prophets and unjust judges; he also said that “in the latter days you shall consider it perfectly,” because he knew iniquity would abound and we would see the same wrath of God poured out in our generation, lest the Lord should have to apologize to Israel for bringing judgment against them. Cal Fire just marked the Thomas Fire as the largest in California’s recorded history, which reminds me of another prophecy: “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, earthquake, great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire” Isaiah 29:6. While Americans continue to burn and chop up 1.6 million unborn babies a year, selling their body parts for experiments; and while Liberal Luciferian Lunatics continue to contrive new laws to oppress Christianity and promote decadence, the storms and the fires are raging. Is it coincidental that our nation is over $20 trillion (no one knows the magnitude of that number) in debt, the nations have been on fire like nothing we have ever seen before, millions of Muslim jihadi “refugees” have invaded the great nations of the world, and we see more theft, murders, terror attacks and devastating storms than we have ever seen in recent history? If you think so, please consider the following prophecy pronounced over idolatrous, fornicating, child-sacrificing Israel, and consider that all of the prophecies stated against Israel, apply to us today, lest God be biased against Israel and not judge America: “Your country is desolate (over $20 trillion in debt), your cities are burned with fire (record-breaking fires); your land, strangers devour it in your presence (millions of Muslim jihadis infiltrated the nations), and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers (refugee benefits will help bankrupt Social Security by 2034, unless laws are changed)“ Isaiah 1:7. Because of their sins, Israel was conquered by Babylon, the Medo-Persians, the Seleucid Empire, Rome and the Ottoman-Turks. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Britain ruled, until the Nation of Israel was established on May 14, 1948, a major fulfillment of Bible prophecy: “…Thus saith the Lord God, I will even gather you from the people and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel” Ezekiel 11:17. God said He would gather Israel back to the land He promised to their fathers, and He did just that in 1948. In fact, since 1882, millions of Jews have made Aliyah עֲלִיָּה (ascent) back to Israel (ascending the mountain of the Lord – Zion) from all over the world. What other nation in history has been conquered so many times, the people scattered, brought back, and the nation reborn? No others! This was also prophesied by Isaiah: “Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day, or shall a nation be born at once? As soon as Zion travailed (Holocaust), she brought forth her children” Isaiah 66:8. Why did Israel travail (suffer the Holocaust)? BECAUSE OF HIS SINS AGAINST GOD! Will God punish His firstborn (Exodus 4:22), the apple of His eye (Zechariah 2:8), but fail to exact judgment against us? Not a chance! Severe judgments are in line for the nations of the world, but the people of God, who are faithful, will be caught up (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). “Watch ye therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and stand before the Son of man” Luke 21:36.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” John 1:1,14
The above passage of scripture was written by the Apostle John about God the Word, Jesus, who came to earth in the “flesh and dwelt among us.” God – the Word – was made flesh, Jesus, the Christ child, and dwelt among us. Since the Bible tells us that Jesus is the Word, who is detailed in written form, the Holy Bible, we need to consider just how dear we should hold the written Word of God to our hearts. Do we cherish our Bibles and study them every day, or are they sitting on bookshelves somewhere gathering dust? God told the Prophet Jeremiah that He would make a new covenant (New Testament) with His people and “write it in their hearts” (Jeremiah 31:33). It is at this time of year that we celebrate the arrival of our Savior, as prophesied hundreds of years before He was born: “Thou, Bethlehem Ephratah (birthplace of Jesus), though thou be little (a small city) among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting” Micah 5:2. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom to order it, and to establish it with judgment and justice from henceforth, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this” Isaiah 9:6-7. God is the “Word,” which is the Word of God. God’s Word is powerful. “For the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged 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. God’s Word can bring conviction; God’s Word can save souls; God’s Word can heal the heart and body, and as we learned from the Book of Genesis, God’s Word even creates. God’s Holy Word is all-powerful; it is the Living Word. So, what have we done with God’s Holy Word? Personally, I can’t go a day without diving into it. I love it. God’s Word contains the instructions to gain Eternal Life, the Kingdom of God and to dwell forever with our Lord and Savior. I have written every word of it, studying it slowly, “line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little” (Isaiah 28:10). I am writing the Books of the Bible for the second time, including the Apocrypha (hidden books). I have written some of the second books in Spanish; but I started all over in Hebrew, the original text, which provides greater insight than the Spanish or English translations. I can’t get enough of God’s Holy Word. I am sharing this information in hopes of inspiring those of you who might not yet have a zeal for knowing God’s Word, the Living Word. The Bible tells us that the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10). The Holy Word of God is prophetic; it reveals the future and it reveals who Jesus really is. It is impossible to know Jesus, in the manner we should know Him, without knowing His Word. I can say from personal experience that the more we know God’s Word, the more intimately we know Jesus Himself. There is no other book in the world that can lead the way to Eternal Life; there is no other book in the world that reveals the mysteries of God; there is no other book that reveals prophecy and insight into the future, or that provides the kind of wisdom, knowledge and understanding that only comes from God. Jesus is the powerful Word of God and He came down from his throne in glory to dwell among men. His own people did not receive Him when He arrived the first time; but He has promised He will come again and, according to Bible prophecy, His return is imminent. People have thought throughout the centuries that He could have returned hundreds of years ago, but had they known the Word of God, which clearly tells us that Israel had to be a nation, and Jerusalem had to belong to the Jews again, they would have known long ago that Jesus would not return until our generation (Psalm 102:16).
Do you know God’s Word – Jesus?
God bless you with the Light of the world and Merry Christmas!

“…when the Son of man comes, shall He find faith on the earth? “ Luke 18:8
There is still much to write about concerning “Pizzagate,” but the Lord inspired me to write about faith this month. Some things are unspeakably wicked, but we can pray for these little ones, that they will be rescued and the reprobates who harm them will be exposed and brought to righteous judgment. Jesus gave us an example as to how we should pray, when he spoke a parable about a widow who consistently went before an ungodly judge, asking for judgment against her adversary: “And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not faint, saying, There was in a city a judge who feared not God, neither regarded man, and there was a widow in that city and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary. He would not for a while, but afterward he said to himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. The Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge said. Shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:1-8. Jesus spoke this parable as an example to us that we should pray diligently and consistently to God with our petitions, because even a godless judge will finally give in when faced with tenacity, so all the more our righteous God will answer our unwavering requests, if we don’t give up. Jesus confirmed that God will answer us, however, He seemed more concerned about whether He would find faith on the earth when He returns. Are we pestering God with our petitions daily and fully expecting Him to answer, or have we lost faith in His promise to answer? We need to pray fervently with confidence that God is going to hear and answer our prayers. These children who suffer terribly deserve at least that much from us, and God will intervene on their behalf and He will avenge them! A good example of our failure to pray, or to invoke God’s help and take action, is the dire condition of public schools today. If Christians had removed their children from public schools when God and prayer were kicked out, and the evolution monkey charts were brought in (a mathematical impossibility, but they still teach it! – http://www.icr.org/i/pdf/btg/btg-179.pdf), schools would have likely backed down and brought the Bibles and prayer back into classrooms. Instead, we are looking at a largely agnostic and hyper-liberal society, in which people are more prone to violence. Schools not only continued to teach evolution, but now they are teaching little elementary school children X-rated sex “education,” including step-by-step instructions on how to sodomize one another! http://rt.com/usa/206311-chicago-5thgraders-sex-ed-anal/ This is child molestation! Where are the godly parents that should be protesting this disgusting filth in hyper-liberal public schools? Why aren’t Christian parents pulling their children out of public schools and placing them in Christian schools, or home educating them en masse? I sent out about 50 packets to prominent church leaders and ministries throughout the United States several years ago regarding the critical problems in public schools, including X-rated sex “education” and teachers molesting their students on a massive scale (http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/39783/). I expected to hear at least some of these ministers blasting the liberal legislators, school boards and the public at large on national television about the crisis. Tragically, only two ministries responded, Jonathan Cahn’s Hope of the World Ministry, and John Hagee’s Ministry! God has given most of these ministries a popular social platform on TV and radio, and yet only seeing two responses tells me that the church at large is deeply entangled with the world, and they might very well face a disappointed Savior on Judgment Day! Perhaps most fear the liberal backlash, or even a drop in tithes and offerings if mothers leave their jobs and stay home to educate their children, instead of sending them off to godless public schools every day. Christians need a refresher in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, to remind us of our calling, especially in this vile liberal world. The Bible tells us, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” 1 John 2:15. Jesus said concerning the last days, “Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” Matthew 24:12. The Word of God also tells us, “Therefore, come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you” 2 Corinthians 6:17. Jesus will return for a church that is unspotted from this world (James 1:27). Are you prepared to face Him?
“…they please themselves in the children of strangers, slapping hands in compact (original Hebrew)” Isaiah 2:6
“Pizzagate” actually started with the Bill and Hillary Clinton/Laura Silsby scandal in 2010. If you aren’t familiar with it, because there were a lot of cover-ups involving the story, Bill and Hillary Clinton provided legal assistance to Laura Silsby, a convicted child trafficker, resulting in a reduced sentence for Silsby. Silsby was arrested in Haiti, as she attempted to smuggle 33 children out of the country without documentation. To top it all off, Silsby’s first attorney, Jorge Puello, was later arrested in connection with an international smuggling ring accused of trafficking women and children from Central America and Haiti. Laura Silsby is the former director of The New Life Children’s Refuge. The Clinton’s were “donors” to the “children’s refuge.” Silsby has a history of bad debts and unpaid wages, typical of criminals. Silsby claimed she planned to build an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, but officials there denied she ever filed an application for this purpose. So, one attempts to smuggle children to an orphanage that is not yet built? Silsby was arrested on January 29, 2010, attempting to steal 33 children from Haiti, most of whom were not even orphans and who had families, according to reports. CNN reported that this was not the first time Silsby attempted to traffic children out of Haiti. Haitian police, acting on a tip, intercepted Silsby as she attempted to steal 40 children, but she was turned back at the border of Haiti. Authorities considered adding a new kidnapping charge, based on this earlier incident, but Hillary and Bill Clinton immediately stepped in on Silsby’s behalf. The Harvard Human Rights Journal stated one of Bill Clinton’s first acts, as special envoy for the United Nations in Haiti, was to “put out the fire of a child abduction scandal involving American citizens.” The Sunday Times reported Bill Clinton intervened to strike a deal with the Haitian government to secure the release of conspirators. Silsby’s charges were subsequently reduced from conspiracy and child abduction to merely “arranging irregular travel,” reported ZeroHedge.com. These are just some excerpts, as the story is very detailed, involving the Clinton Foundation and illegal acts committed by Bill and Hillary Clinton to aid child traffickers and cover up the story. Since her release from Haiti, Laura Silsby has taken the last name Gayler and she now works for the software company AlertSense, as Vice President of Marketing. AlertSense works with the federal government on FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS). Alarmingly enough, one of IPAWS functions is to issue Amber Alerts when a child is kidnapped! Is this not the fox watching over the henhouse? Senator Nancy Schaefer (R-GA) tried her best to expose corruption/child abduction within the government’s Child Protective Services, calling their work “legal kidnapping.” After publishing a documentary, The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services, she and her husband were murdered at home in their bed. The coroner ruled their deaths a murder/suicide, which was nonsense. The Schaefers had been receiving death threats, as Senator Schaefer continued to work on exposing child traffickers and pedophiles working with CPS. Hillary’s Wikileaks-exposed emails are also very telling. One in particular (email 3741) is very alarming, amidst all of the incriminating evidence against the Clintons and their associates suspected of trafficking children. Hillary sent an email to Huma Abedin (pictured above), saying, “With fingers crossed, the old rabbit’s foot out of the box in the attic, I will be sacrificing a chicken in the backyard to Moloch.” Moloch (AKA Molech) is the ancient god the Ammonites sacrificed their children to in Biblical history. The code name “chicken” is often referred to as a little boy by pedophiles. For example, James Alefantis, widely known as a suspected child trafficker, sent out an Instagram with a photo of his boyfriend holding a baby and he wrote “#chickenlovers” beside the photo. James Alefantis raised funds for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign by hosting dinners at his pizza shop. These suspects use numerous pedophile code words in their emails. The Bible tells us that God’s wrath will be poured out in the last days and the Prophet Isaiah stated one of the reasons why: “Therefore, you have forsaken your people, the house of Jacob, because they are replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers (slapping hands in compact – original Hebrew)” Isaiah 2:6. The original Hebrew translation of this scripture includes the fact that they not only “please themselves in the children of strangers,” but also “slap their hands in compact” – trafficking children! “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot (who escaped vile Sodom)…thus shall it be when the Son of man is revealed” Luke 17:28-30.

Wikileaks email about Obama’s pizza/dog party – Biden’s birthday greeting to Barack, including bracelet – John Podesta showing same type bracelet (left arm)
“As it was in the days of Lot…but the same day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all” Luke 17:28-29
Included in the photos above is Obama playing ping pong with a young boy. James Alefantis (user name JimmyComet) wrote next to the photo on his Instagram account, “You’re my date for next year.” You might ask what Alefantis is doing with a photo of Obama playing ping pong with a young boy in the White House, in the lower level of the White House at that. In the other photo above, Obama is snuggling the neck of a little girl. Also included among these photos is an email exposed by Wikileaks, written from Fred Burton with Stratfor Enterprises, a geopolitical intelligence group, to Don Kuykendall, another employee of Stratfor, telling Kuykendall, “I think Obama spent about $65,000 of the tax-payers money flying in pizza/dogs from Chicago for a private party at the White House not long ago, assume we are using the same channels?” Kuykendall replied, “To celebrate all you hot dogs out there. Aaric, you can participate as well!” First, for security reasons, no prepared foods are brought into the White House; besides, no one pays $65,000 for pizza/dogs. Second, according to the FBI, “pizza” and “hot dogs” are code words commonly used by pedophiles and those involved in child trafficking. The photos above were posted to Instagram by James Alefantis, who is also suspect for child trafficking. He is a DC pizza shop owner, but according to GQ magazine, he is among the 50 most powerful men in Washington. Alefantis also has close ties to Hillary Clinton and John and Tony Podesta, who own a powerful lobbying firm in Washington. John Podesta was also Hillary’s campaign manager. One might assume that Alefantis has the photo of Obama and the boy, because he supplied the boy and the ping pong table (Alefantis owns Comet Ping Pong pizza and a good supply of ping pong tables). He also used the word “date,” as in having a social interlude with the boy. Another item included in the photos is the picture of a bracelet with Biden’s birthday greeting to Obama on Twitter. It is made up of string, beads and a small PIZZA. John Podesta is wearing the same type of bracelet on his left arm (just below his watch). Does it not seem strange that these grown men are photographed with such imagery, with children, and they all appear to own/relate to these childish bracelets with small PIZZA charms on them? How absurd is that? It is extremely improper and sociopathically strange. So many other things are bizarre about these men, other politicians and the elite members of society that they associate with, which we will delve into, God willing. I have added more photos than I generally would, but photos speak more than a thousand words, do they not? There is far more evidence that I will not be able to include, but there will be no denying that something very sinister appears to be going on – and it’s rampant in Washington. Jesus said, “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…but the same day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28-30. There is much more to know about today’s City of Sodom and I will expound a bit more next month, God willing. Let’s all be vigilant, for the Day of the Lord is at hand.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” Matthew 7:13
I have some very interesting information, to say the least, about Pizzagate that I compiled for the newsletter this month, although I later received a different directive from the Lord for August; so I will interrupt the Pizzagate series and continue with that topic next month, God willing. I am compelled to write about a vision I had on May 19, 2017. I had been praying in the living room and I slipped into a vision. Suddenly, before my eyes, I saw fire all around and what appeared as the shape of a human mouth at the entrance of hell. People were constantly entering that horrible place; some entered one at a time, others entered in small groups, and some entered hell in large groups. Each time a person, or groups, entered the mouth of hell, it opened and closed, as a human mouth would. The mouth never stayed shut for hardly a moment, because as soon as it closed on the last one, or group, that entered, it opened again for the next. After the vision ceased, I felt the Spirit of the Lord impress upon me that He wanted me to see the multitudes that are entering hell, so I would warn everyone I could. The Lord’s return is near and there isn’t much time to warn those who are unsaved to get right with God. After the vision, this passage of scripture came to my mind: “Therefore (because of sin) hell hath enlarged herself and opened her mouth without measure, and their glory, their multitude, their pomp and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it” Isaiah 5:14. I told some friends and family, even those who are saved, about my vision, so they could share this testimony with others, especially those who are unsaved and on their way to that horrifying place. I published articles about this vision on the websites, and now the Lord compels me to set aside this edition of the newsletter to share the information with readers, because there is so little time left to witness to lost souls. A short while after seeing this vision, I drew a picture of it (above), as best I could. The fire was all around, and I saw fire as far to the left as the eye could see, and as far to the right without end, but I could see the mouth of hell. Jesus said, as recorded in Matthew 7:3, “…broad is the way that leadeth to destruction;” and He said in verse 14, “…strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it” Matthew 7:14 (emphasis added). Few? That is correct. God wants dedicated, consecrated, sold out, all in love with Him, souls! Jesus said, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot. I would (rather) thou were cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth” Revelation 3:16. “Christians,” many of them, have no idea that their “sloppy-agape,” lack of commitment to the Lord, their embarrassment of Him in public, having one foot in the world, and the other foot into Christianity, will not be accepted by Him in the end. Many people who call themselves Christians in our world today are detached and opposed to what Christ said about true discipleship: “…if ANY MAN will come after Me (He wasn’t just referring to His martyrs and prophets), let him DENY HIMSELF AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS and follow Me” Matthew 16:24 (emphasis added). If anyone feels a bit uncomfortable with these Words, the Words of Christ Himself, those individuals need a revived, close relationship with the Lord. In other words, it isn’t difficult at all to pick up the cross of sacrificing one’s own self and life to Christ, if we have a real relationship, a close relationship with our Savior, the One who died for us. Morality doesn’t save anyone. Every one of us may know some very nice people, who do good works and present as kind and considerate. The Word of God tells us that no one will enter the Kingdom of God, unless they receive Jesus as their Savior and repent of their sins. It is great to do good works, and especially God’s people need to demonstrate the fruit of good works, but if a do-gooder doesn’t receive Jesus as their Savior, the Son of the living God, who died for the sins of mankind, they are on their way to hell, according to the Word of God. Jesus said, “He that believeth on Him (referring to Himself) is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” John 3:18.

Naked boy escaping Buckingham Palace – Jimmy Savile, Knighted by Royals – James Alefontis, Owner of Comet Ping Pong, and among 50 most powerful in DC
“The same day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all” Luke 17:29
You may have heard about the United Kingdom pedophile ring that begins with the “Royal Family” and webs all the way down to the impoverished. Some have become prolific pedophiles in the UK, only after their deaths, because no one dare leak the facts while they were still living. Jimmy Savile is one, whose crimes surfaced publicly after his death in 2011. A few boldly spoke out against him as far back as 1963, but they were silenced and ignored. Savile was Knighted by the Royals in 1990, AND with a Papal Knighthood by Pope John Paul II also in 1990. Immediately after his death, BBC began reporting Savile’s crimes of pedophilia and interviewing victims. In summary, the “Royals” protected Savile until his death, and the pedophile papacy had the same incentive for protecting Savile. Savile is now said to have countless victims and officials are digging up bodies of dead victims. Savile was not only a predator of children, some younger than 10 years of age, he provided children to the Royals and “priests.” Member of Parliament Cyril Smith in the UK was a regular visitor to Elm Guest House, which has become known as a place where children were abused, but his crimes were also kept quiet, until he died in 2010. You may never hear of Barack Hussein Obama’s pedophilia, until after he is dead. You will likely never hear of Hillary Clinton’s involvement in child trafficking, until after she is dead. You might not have heard about one of the 50 most powerful people in Washington, DC, who is “simply a pizza shop owner,” but he also has a penchant for babies, digging under his pizza shop, baby coffins, etc, according to his private Instagrams exposed by Wikileaks. Comet Ping Pong pizza on Connecticut Ave in Washington is likely just a front. You may not have even heard about the “Pizzagate” pedophile ring in America, unless you visit conservative and Christian websites, their You Tube video channels, or perhaps you might have seen Ben Swann’s investigative report about Pizzagate on CBS “Reality Check,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBSvUlkB61s) before he was suddenly shut down. I have been writing about Pizzagate since November 2016, on the websites (indicated in the footer below), as well as four other sites not listed. If you have never seen the evidence, or the Instagram photos, regarding the Pizzagate scandal, you are likely thinking I have “gone off the deep end” and lost my mind. The evidence, however, is REAL and it has been hidden and protected for a long time, but leaks have gained momentum in the US over about the last eight months, not that they haven’t tried to shut us down. I have decided to publish the information in this newsletter, as well as the websites, because everyone needs to know the day and hour in which we live. We are living in the last of the last days prophetically; and if you have been snuggled up with pillows on the sofa, in front of the TV, it is time to WAKE UP to the horrendous things that are happening in the world, a brief prelude to the return of the Lord and the onset of the greatest tribulation to fall upon the earth since the world began (Matthew 24:21), making the Holocaust pale in comparison. Jesus said, “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot, they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded, but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” Luke 17:28-29. First, notice that Jesus said life will (seemingly) be going on as usual when He returns, which is basically what we see around us in the natural realm. Then Jesus said Lot went out of Sodom (Genesis 18-19), rescued out of a city known for sexual deviant behaviors. I imagine you are wondering about the evidence against Obama and Hillary. That will arrive shortly, God willing. Those of us reporting need your fervent prayers, because some have died reporting already. This is sadly no joke, saints, friends. The Lord will return for His people when the days are intolerably evil, yet Jesus said, “They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all…Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” Luke 17:27,30. These hideous, vile crimes among the elite are beginning to surface, even though the masses are living as though there is no tomorrow. I believe the reason these crimes are surfacing to Christians and conservatives is because God wants us to know what time it is. Please pray for discovery and rescue of abducted children daily. Until next month, God willing.
