In the last nineteen months our world changed dramatically and wickedly; it’s been seized upon by evil powers of the fourth beast-kingdom, Dan. 2:40 and 7:7. And I assure you, after the next nineteen months many will be weeping and praying to God for rescue. This will create the end-time harvest of new souls into God’s kingdom, people who beforehand were not made aware of the end-times and its devastation to humanity. Also, millions in churches whose pastors never thought it worthwhile to teach the testimony of Christ for the end will be offended. Many pastors view Christ’s teachings of the end as above their pay-grade, divisive, problematic; they’re afraid to defend the testimony of Jesus. But if that Laodicean lukewarm spirit is not exchanged for love for Christ and His end-time truths, many in the church will be swept to perdition in ignorance.
In the last sixty months the organized church changed for the worse. It’s been infected by the world to be relevant to the culture. It fears man more than God. It espouses love for God and people, but if it loved God it would trumpet the teachings of Christ and His end-time truths. But instead, it loves its traditions of men, it even embraces some abominations of the world. Today, homosexual men and women are often in positions of leadership in church, though God’s Word warns that those who live like that will not inherit the Kingdom of God, 1 Cor. 6:9. In its efforts to be loved by the world much of the church has been conditioned to embrace Antichrist’s beast system. In this regard, Christ is not even in the church, but stands OUTSIDE, knocking, saying “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).
There’s an evil global agenda to get the God of the Bible and His Christ removed from public and private thought. In America it began in earnest in June 1962 when the SCOTUS voted 8 to 1 to ban the Lord’s Prayer and Bible reading in public schools. Of course, we see where that evil decision got us as a nation; wickedness is rampant in public schools. And there are strong efforts by Democrats, RINOs, the elite, and globalists to eradicate any semblance of God and His Christ from public discourse, “because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Rom. 1:21–22). How remarkably true!
One of Jesus’ many promises of the end-times says “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” (Matt. 24:9). While that’s been occurring in third world countries, it will also come to America and every other democracy that’s preached the gospel of Jesus Christ freely. Spiritually and physically, the walls are closing in on true Christians, God’s “own special people” (1 Peter 2:9). Religious freedoms of public assembly, worship and prayer are being ripped away by authoritarian overlords. And soon, all organized churches will either bow to evil government dictates or be forced into closure.
I am sadly aware that many non-discerning Christians have foolishly put their hope and faith in former President Donald Trump, and to those who have, do not think to yourself or pray that he will save us from this world’s hostilities, persecutions and possible death. Here’s why: to think or pray in that regard, is to think and pray against what Jesus Christ prophesied. And that is rebellion against God and it weakens your own faith and trust in Christ for the end-times. Rather, pray according to God’s Word, agreeing with the Lord Jesus and ask for God’s help in properly preparing spiritually and physically for the evils of the approaching destructive tribulation.
Hear my warning: I liked President Donald Trump as president as much as anyone else. He did much good, but there’s also a dark side to his public works that have me deeply concerned, not the least of which was his ambition AND ability to secure amicable peace agreements between Muslim nations and Israel. Secondly, that his daughter Ivanka renounced her Christian faith for Orthodox Judaism because her husband Jared Kushner is an Orthodox Jew. And thirdly, Trump unleashed his Operation Warp Speed in getting Americans vaccinated! WHY? All these should get your attention. This should STOP the near-worship of President Trump for which many are guilty. Trump is not your savior, nor is he America’s savior. And whether or not Trump returns as president, he will never thwart God’s prophetic Word. It’s spiritually troubling that many Christians, without discernment, idolize Trump. They deceive themselves and many others.
Be in sync with God’s Word, and be aware that this world system is being set up by wicked spiritual powers to bring to fruition “the mark of the beast” (Rev. 13:16–17). Listen, that’s the intent of COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The elite will never loosen their iron grip on the powers they’ve captured by fearmongering. It’s the world’s way of not only introducing but acclimating people to being controlled for our own good as they’d have us believe. Truth is, they’re killing people – killing tens of thousands of people! Wicked leaders have already forced COVID-19 lockdowns, and next we’ll be subjected to Delta Variant lockdowns, for the elite to gain even more control. They’ll also use digital currency as explained in this July 6, 2021 headline from CBN News to usher in the eternally deadly mark of the beast.
The Biden regime has ordered neighborhood and community, and door to door knocking, to get people vaccinated. In Mecklenburg County, NC the effort was not received well, and justifiably angered many. The government is hell-bent on vaccinating us all. Why? They have a nefarious plan at work, and these scoundrels will not stop until they force their vaccines on everyone. But don’t you take it, it’s a death trap and part of a global depopulation scheme. In Bristol County, MA authorities have even introduced COVID-19 sniffing dogs. The world is truly going mad. One cannot point to another pandemic in history where authorities have taken such draconian, authoritarian powers to lord power over the people. Be assured, this will grow much worse.
Big Business, Big Tech, and Big Pharma are all on board to ensure the elite achieve their goal. And in that process Christians, conservatives, pro-lifers, gun owners, anti-COVID-19 vacciners, and patriots are being singled out, censored, isolated, and marked for destruction, while it seems criminals control our streets and the government refuses to do anything about it. Loosed, raging evil spirits incite hatred of God’s people, those opposed to sin, violence, hatred, and debauchery. Many are being ensnared by “the rulers of the darkness of this age” (Eph. 6:12).
None of this should take us true Christians by surprise, for Jesus warned: “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet, because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you…If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you…But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me” (John 15:19–21). Our rejection of the New World Order may cost us our life. FEMA re-education camps for the non-compliant are already built and in place. Governments now mandate its nefarious will upon people. But let’s be like Jesus’ disciples when persecuted, “rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name” (Acts 5:41).
The walls of hatred are closing in on Christians, conservatives, pro-lifers, gun owners and patriots. Our situation will grow increasingly worse until the middle of the tribulation, when “war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him…Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time” (Rev. 12:7–12). Then comes the “great tribulation” (Matt. 24:21), just as Jesus warned, the last 3 1/2 years of this present age; the time when “the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days” (Rev. 12:6,~14). Prepare for that now!
I expect the internet and other comms will be shut down by the elite as they don’t want people communicating to make plans. I expect this sooner rather than later. When the tribulation starts, track the days with a 3 1/2 year calendar, and watch for the two witnesses in Jerusalem who “will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth” (Rev. 11:3). They will minister the first 3 1/2 years of tribulation. Their appearance will be in stark contrast to modern-day preachers and teachers. Jesus warned of the time when their ministry ends, saying, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36). This is when the freewoman, the true prepared Church, makes her escape for the last 1,260 days.
