The world still reels from COVID-19, its deadlier variant strains and killer vaccinations though half of 2021 is gone. One might ask, “Can things get any worse?” Indeed, world conditions and the degradation of humanity can and will get much worse. That’s not a scare tactic, but factual faith-based, biblically-informed truth. One of the greatest physical and spiritual blinders to the calamitous end-times is lack of knowledge, for which God said “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hos. 4:6). That should compel every Christian to search out the biblical end-time knowledge of God, personalize it, and prepare accordingly to endure to the end.
First, to the institutional church: “the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17). Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, qualified Godly leadership has been rare, because many politically correct pastors paralyzed by fear with little to no discernment pandered to the authoritarian and draconian dictates of political leaders while their flocks suffered biblical ignorance for things that must occur to usher in “the man of sin…the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3). Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892) said it well: “Avowed atheists are not a tenth as dangerous as those preachers who scatter doubt and stab at faith…Germany was made unbelieving by her preachers, and England is following in her tracks.” And so is America! Yes, there are enemies within the church, and often they stand in pulpits. Who’s an enemy of the Church but he who muzzles and restricts Christ’s prophetic truths for the times of the end of this present age.
Consider this discerning “Open Letter” from Harbingers Daily: “Still Silent Shepherds – An Open Letter To Post Pandemic Pastors”. In part it says “Many churchgoers are also tired of pastors capitulating to ungodly liberal organizations and agendas…Most pastors said nothing about the BLM Inc. riots, skewed numbers, and draconian measures, but actually embraced them…Instead of allowing brokenness and humility to guide them, they choose pride and political correctness…Many churches became vaccine clinics and said nothing when government officials offered free gimmicks to inject our children with something that is unproven and untested…Only a man stranded on an island would be oblivious to the ulterior motives going on in our government…The silence of post-pandemic pastors has cost our nation far more than we may ever realize.” The silence of pastors in condemning governments’ evil agendas; their silence in condemning hate groups BLM, Antifa, and radical Left; and their silence of the biblical signs of the times, propel many to a “lack of knowledge”.
A famine of God’s truths has preceded the famine of physical food that will soon seize upon America and many other world nations. A spiritual drought of Living Water also precedes the drought of physical water which will soon produce a famine of food. This life is about to change dramatically, and those who are wise in Christ and believe His Word will have prepared, just like the five wise virgins of Matt. 25:1–13. I believe you and your loved ones want to be like the five wise virgins, prepared to endure to the end, and not like the five foolish virgins who were unprepared and did not gain entrance to the Master’s banquet. But the key to the coming crisis is to believe and personalize the testimony of Jesus. But sadly, as Scripture clearly records, it’s the messenger of truth that’s rejected by both religious institutions and the culture. Truly, what “has been is what will be…there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccl. 1:9). To the lukewarm church, Jesus said “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Rev. 3:20). Do not miss the truth here that the Son of God is standing OUTSIDE the lukewarm church, He’s not INSIDE, for His Word has been subjected to cultural partiality and tradition, and has therefore largely been shut out! It’s rebellion, no different than ancient Israel’s rebellion at the edge of Canaan where that generation, except for Joshua and Caleb, perished in the wilderness excluded from their intended inheritance.
“Go along to get along”, is largely the message coming from many pulpits these days; “believe our government leaders, for they have your best interests at heart”. No they don’t! They are but puppets going along to get along with the higher authoritarian overlords to whom they answer. Remember, at Psa. 2:1–3 God tells us that national leaders have set themselves against God and against His Anointed Christ. And sadly, for PC’s sake many pastors and churches have joined those ranks, again, propelling multitudes to a “lack of knowledge”. I warn you in the love of Christ, advancing and obeying government mandates will ultimately lead to also accepting the mark of the beast. That’s governments’ ultimate goal. Vaccine pushers planted fear in many to accept them. Similar mandates are even now infecting children’s cartoons! It’s evil propaganda! Today, fear-driven indoctrination to obey government rules the day, even for many in the church. Germany’s Adolf Hitler did the same thing as he set the stage to purge Jews from society.
Things will get worse before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and great glory, after which God restores everything. Then and only then will things become better. In the meantime, however, the wicked elite will continue the Great Reset of 2021. What we can expect is that the government will begin forgiving debts – rents, college, mortgage and auto debts. It’s one of the many catalysts to enslave people to government, making people utterly beholden to government. Of course, government absorbing debts will come with a price – people who benefit from it will then own NOTHING! The New World Order, however, will then own not only the debt of those from whom it freed, but will also own the people whom they freed! I suspect resistance to it will be dealt with very swiftly and very harshly, yes, even re-education camps for the non-compliant.
If possible, get out of debt, because “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” (Prov. 22:7), and “Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law” (Rom. 13:8). I’ve said for years that one of the best ways to prepare for the end-times is to be debt-free, and I strongly believe that today. Financial indebtedness will become an ever-increasing inspiration to go along with the New World Order (NWO) demands just to get along. It’s been being planned for decades, the government of the NWO wants you to be deeply in debt in order to entice you to accept its offer of buying your debt, regardless of the amount. If the NWO can free you of debt it will have you where it wants you – beholden to it! Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum said “You’ll own nothing” and “you’ll be happy about it”. Please hear this: EVERYTHING about COVID-19, the lockdowns, social distancing and mask wearing, has been about, and continues to be, government gaining control over you!
It’s the nature of the “fourth beast” of Dan. 2:40 and Dan. 7:7. But sadly, many pastors pay no attention to this as they’ve been told to preach the dispensational pre-trib rapture lie. So they see no reason whatsoever to resist the WEF, the NWO, the UN, the WHO, the CDC, or any form of government that appears good. (And now lastly, be wary of a President Trump return this fall).
