“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, and her people a joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying” (Isa. 65:17–19). But first…
… “you will hear of wars and rumors of wars…nation will rise against nation…there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes…then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated…then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another” (Matt. 24:6–7, 10)…and “when you see the abomination of desolation [Antichrist] spoken of by Daniel the prophet…(whoever reads let him understand)” (Matt. 25:15).
Last night the U.S. struck Syria with missiles from U.S. war ships in the Mediterranean Sea, virtually destroying a Syrian airbase for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons in Syria. Interestingly, 100 years ago yesterday, April 6, 1917, the U.S. entered WWI. The present conflict will likely escalate to fulfill the prophecy, that, “Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap” (Isa. 17:1). Wars will now continue until the end.
Satan’s destruction of man, made in God’s image has always been his goal. But woe to those who are complicit with him in that process. Just like the angels of heaven, man has free will to serve whom he will. Man’s history from Cain killing Abel, to Israel’s civil war which divided Israel between north and south, and every war since, wherein man destroyed man, is of Satan.
It is sad the great number of pastors and teachers who continue promoting the pre-trib rapture lie, a lie which disagrees 100% with, “the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Rev. 1:9) for the times of the end. Millions continue being deceived by false teachers who premeditatedly disallow our Lord’s Words of the first resurrection and gathering His elects saints, “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31). I can only hope and pray they repent of their unbelief and false witness.
Post-Calvary, it is Satan who inspires man to wage war against his fellowman made in the image of God. Jesus was so clear: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you…that you may be sons of your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:43–45). [emphasis added] Thus, the one born again preserves life made in the image of God, because God, “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4).
It is especially incumbent upon us Christians to recognize Satan’s works to destroy man made in the image of God and have no participation with him in that process, for, “The thief [Satan] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10a). One of Satan’s primary tools is war, wherein people kill one another. But saints do NOT participate with Satan’s war efforts.
Thus, the Spirit makes clear, “Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ…I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us (saints) as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh” (2 Cor. 10:1–3).
Today, I share with you yet another covert way Satan is destroying man created in God’s image.
IN THIS LAST AND FINAL GENERATION Christians must recognize that Satan’s efforts to destroy man, made in the image of God, continues relentlessly. Be wise to that truth. The line in history that put Satan on notice that his time and efforts are running out was the rebirth of the State of Israel in May 1948. THAT’S WHEN SATAN’S FINAL END-TIME EFFORTS TO DESTROY MAN, MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE, BEGAN WITH DECEPTIVE FERVOR!
Satan’s end-time works include everything he’s used before. He will use the days of Noah, (transhumanism), and the days of Lot, (transgenderism); he will use wars right up to Christ’s return. For the last 70 years Satan has worked covertly through globalists at the UN, in secret societies, and all who desire a One World Order, who intentionally destroy the earth’s natural resources God made for the health and sustenance of mankind made in the image of God.
Today, oceans are poisoned and our skies are being sprayed with chemicals toxic to people. Our food supply is GMO and chemical-saturated. Globalists are destroying the earth, and before you call that hyperbole know that God will, “destroy those who destroy the earth” (Rev. 11:18), so we know, in fact, it’s occurring. Globalists and Big-Pharma feed each other’s evil intentions.
Just watch an hour of TV and note the pharmaceutical ads for new drugs to treat all kinds of physical maladies. It wasn’t always like this. Our food supply in the early 20th century was high quality natural foods, but in these end-times, the antichrist spirit of greed and power has driven those who care only about corporate profits regardless of deadly illnesses caused to mankind.
Most of today’s food is designed to make people obese, sick and medication-dependent. Why? To increase the wealth of the elite. Doctors prescribe medications while their patients continue eating processed GMO foods. Note the people in your sphere of acquaintance that are on hyper tension, diabetes, gastrointestinal, reflux, neuropathy, or depression, autoimmune, thyroid, respiratory, IBS, ADD, cancer, or other prescription medications. THIS IS NOT NORMAL!
It’s critical that we and our loved ones make every effort to free ourselves of Rx medications, for in the coming days we don’t want to be dependent on government controlled Rx meds. The time is coming when we’ll also want to sever all ties with our cell phones, computers, TV’s and other government-enabled tracking devices. Satan’s end-time rule will be the harsh One World Order.
Food, medications, credit and debit cards, cell phones, iPads, desktops and laptops are highly effective ways through which government’s track people. It’s all part of the One World Order, Satan’s plan to locate any opposition. Ultimately, to buy or sell will require having the mark of the beast, (Rev. 13:16–17), which will be a technological extension of what already exists now.
Rx meds and GMO-laden grocery store and restaurant foods are toxic. The two feed each other in a vicious cycle of money-lust, forcing dependency on Rx meds. The deadly effects of GMO’s, pesticides, Round-Up (yes, weed-killer in our food!), sodium nitrate, nitrites and other chemicals in our so-called nutritious foods are causing physical and mental illnesses and even death.
The poisoning of air, water, land and seas, with the ultimate target being the destruction of man, made in the image of God, is the intent of Satan and all those who serve him in these end-times. Be wise to that. There are land and marine eco-systems now collapsing all over the world as a direct result of man’s greed for money, power and control, which is also destroying the earth.
The earth is now in revolt. Giant sink holes are opening in the earth from one hemisphere to the other on rural farms and in cities. Ever-increasing volcanoes belch toxic smoke and lava heating the air of our planet. Undersea volcanoes are now raising ocean temperatures, not to mention the increased earthquakes all over the world, plus, flash flooding, mudslides, acid rains, monster tornadoes and hail storms, all causing death and destruction. Nature has turned very violent.
God warned of the end-times, that, because of the absence of, “truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land: by swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery…Therefore the land will mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air; even the fish of the sea will be taken away” (Hos. 4:1b–3).
Hundreds of square miles of highly toxic salt and fresh-water oxygen-depleting algae blooms are killing fish by the millions. Whales are beaching themselves by the hundreds; dead shellfish and baitfish by the millions are washing up on beaches. Top-feeding sea birds are dying of starvation as their food source has died off. These signs and more are prophesied for the times of the end.
If you’re still listening to pastors and teachers who tell you everything is fine, please get your Bible and learn the truths of the end-times, and then prepare by the grace and mercy of God.
Man’s increasing destruction of our air, water, lands and seas create famine. The Holy Spirit said, “behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine’” (Rev. 6:5–6). Famine!
What’s unrepentant man’s outlook for man? Note this from Daily Mail, 04/03/2017, “Upgrading humans into GODS will be the next ‘billion dollar industry’ expert claims – Humans are going to upgrade themselves into gods. That is, humans will acquire abilities that in the past were considered divine, such as eternal youth, mind reading, and the ability to engineer life.”
Ah, dear saints, do you hear the serpent’s hiss! Do you hear him deceptively speaking rebellion into the hearts and minds of the foolish and non-discerning, “Has God indeed said” (Gen. 3:1)?
Jesus’ parable of “the fig tree” (Matt. 24:32–35) is being fulfilled. Ours is the last generation of this present age, and woe unto those who disbelieve or fail to apply Jesus’ end-time Words, for no amount of unbelief and false tradition of a pre-trib rapture will change Christ’s well-detailed, end-time events. The question is: do you actually believe Christ? Don’t be like the foolish virgins who were unprepared to endure to the end of the age, Matt. 25:1–13. Believe Jesus and live!
