There has never been such a global effort by national leaders to shut down nations and their economies on the premise of a coronavirus pandemic. Never! Yet it continues unabated eight months after its creation in December 2019. And now “Top Federal Reserve official says US needs another lockdown to save economy”. Folks, this is insane! Our leaders are deliberately bankrupting the economy, but if you’re discerning of the times from the prophetic Scriptures, none of this comes as a surprise. Yet, it’s sobering to see these catastrophes one after another.
We are seeing the ever-increasing power of the spirit of Antichrist as God is withdrawing His restraint on evil, 2 Thess. 2:6–7. And though there’s a “Massive Protest in Germany Against COVID-19 Masks And Vaccines”, globalist’s wicked agenda will not be deterred. These demonstrations now rise across the world, but to no avail. The New World Order (NWO) will have its way because God will allow it. The time of the end has come and nothing we do will thwart God’s prophetic Word for the end. But, what Christians can do is prepare in truth, and fervently pray for wisdom and strength to endure to the apocalyptic end.
And now it appears the “Trump Admin Sidelines CDC To Give Pentagon ‘Unprecedented’ Role In Vaccine Distribution”. So, it would appear that President Trump is fully committed to getting us all vaccinated under his “Operation Warp Speed” COVID-19 vaccination distribution plan. If you don’t already know, please do NOT let the government inject you with that vaccine! Do not! Take it from Dr. Judy A. Mikovits, highly credentialed in molecular biology, who warns that “50 Million Americans May Die From COVID-19 Vaccine”. Of course, this is what globalists want.
And Christians make the top of that list as we “obey God rather than man” (Acts 5:29). We will not comply with anti-Christ government dictates and that makes us a prime target. I trust you see how true Christians are increasingly being culled from society. Labeled as non-compliant we are being marked for societal isolation because we know the COVID-19 vaccine changes our God-given DNA. So it was in Noah’s day when fallen angels had relations with women who gave birth to non-redeemable hybrid beings. And today, hybrid synthetic beings are made through gene-editing technologies by giant tech firms. Here’s just one example of many: “Google working on smart tattoos that turn skin into living touchpad”. Beware! Antichrist technologies, under the guise of normalcy, while enhancing or saving lives, are effectively acclimating people to the notion of accepting as a positive thing, the “mark of the beast”. And billions of people will be deceived as “all the world marveled and followed after the beast” (Rev. 13:3).
So, what does all this mean for the blood-bought saints of Christ? We must prepare in truths of Christ, and forsake false and hopeless church traditions, for God said “the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Dan. 11:32). Do you truly know the God who said that He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31)? By deceit, false teachers have promised millions of believers the opposite of what God taught, promising instead a pre-tribulation rapture. Self-deceived false teachers have exchanged the unchangeable truths of God’s Christ for the ear-tickling delights of falsehoods and treachery of evil spirits.
But who will you believe – false teachers who have become extremely wealthy and popular by movie sales, books and tape series promising people a pre-trib rapture which contradicts Christ, or will you believe Christ, the One to whom we must all give account, 2 Cor. 5:10–11? Those who believe the pre-trib rapture are not equipped to “carry out great exploits” for God. They’ll likely be overcome by shock and offense because they believed the hopeless pre-trib tradition.
Jesus Christ faced the grim truth that He would suffer the cross of Calvary. And as Christians, we “are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us” (2 Cor. 5:20), which means that we too face the grim truth of persecution and hatred for being Christ’s. Our Lord said “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you…A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you” (John 15:18, 20).
The “distress of nations, with perplexity” (Luke 21:25) is very real as chaos rules both day and night. Many police officers have quit their jobs, and self-protection from mobs is increasingly prohibited. Watch this short promo by Dr. Tom Horn, “Here Comes Antichrist And The Final Solution” for his new book. I personally believe Antichrist will be revealed in 12 to 15 months.
“And now you know what is restraining, that he [Antichrist] may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He [God] who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way” (2 Thess. 2:6–7). And furthermore “concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him…Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day [the Day saints gather together with Christ in the rapture] will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:1, 3).
The tribulation means persecution, imprisonment, or even death for the non-compliant. Sadly, many pastors have already acquiesced to ungodly forces by canceling services; forces who want churches closed but casinos kept open; forces opposing God’s command in “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together” (Heb. 10:25). The true Church will obey God rather than man, Acts 5:29. And what’s occurring in China now will also come to America; only state-sanctioned churches allowed: “I had to preach as the state required,” one of the preachers said. “Otherwise, the church would not have reopened.” Though I disagree with Pastor John MacArthur on some of his theology, I applaud his decision to keep his church open despite the ungodly governance of Gov. Gavin Newsom in California! But the truth is that the U.S. will soon see an explosion of ungodly laws that assault the Church with existential intent.
Believers, it’s already begun through weaponized water and power! Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said that the Department of Water and Power is “to cut off water, power to properties hosting large gatherings”. How long do you think it will take for those evil authorities to also shut off the water and power to churches who fit the same “large gatherings” profile!
God will allow Satan’s continued attack, for “It was granted to him [Antichrist] to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear” (Rev. 13:7–9). I pray that we all have ears to hear what God and His Holy Spirit said.
