Dark Days For America

Friday, August 27, 2021

God said “without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Heb. 11:6); and “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1), meaning, contextually, faith in the plainly written Word of God, not traditions of men; and “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom. 10:17). Let’s embrace faith, believe Christ and prepare, for He detailed the end of this age for our benefit, and He wants us prepared to endure it like the wise virgins of Matt. 25:1–13. Christ plainly taught that the gate is narrow and the path is difficult that leads to life, Matt. 7:13–14. Ignorance of the difficult path, including the 7-year tribulation, is no excuse for those having God’s Word. Don’t allow anyone, especially dispensational ministers, to lead you to silence or misappropriate the testimony of Christ for when He gathers His elect. If we have salvation faith in Christ, then we are “His elect” (Matt. 24:31), not unbelieving Jews.

We must each answer God’s call to believe His Son, and only then will we be led to preparation. But the prerequisite of believing faith comes first. Saving faith acts upon “the word of God”, as “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom. 10:17), never by traditions of men which make “the word of God of no effect through your tradition…” (Mark 7:13). Do not allow tradition to deceive you to believing you’ll be raptured pre-tribulation, for you won’t be. That’s difficult for many to accept, but if one is willing to accept the testimony of Jesus above the testimony of church traditions that silence Christ, one will come to know the Truth, which will set you free. I believe that everyone reading this wants to know the Truth, and to be truly guided by Him, Jesus Christ, rather than the empty, foolish, and hopeless traditions of men.

The above is extremely important because our world is now rapidly changing, and preparing for the 7-year rule of “the man of sin…the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3). Christians must discern the signs of the end-times, believe the Son of God and prepare. The elite are taking control of the world; they plan to destroy America and Christianity, and all freedom-loving countries. Does this account for America’s horrific defeat in Afghanistan? The world now sees that the U.S. has been shamefully defeated by radical Islamic thugs hell-bent on evil. America has become dramatically weakened by internal corruption through former President Obama who followed Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. As a result, the U.S has foolishly been blinded and weakened by not only political and religious, but even military leaders who fight to promote the LGBTQ+ agenda and transgenderism, diversity training, woke culture, racism, and inclusivity, openly embracing evils.

America’s demise in Afghanistan is exactly what the elite wanted, wicked power brokers behind the scenes of evil guiding the mentally incompetent and fading, President Joe Biden. Elite thugs mount evil strategic moves that empower the New World Order and its precepts and subsidiaries of like evil intent. Before long America will be invaded, possibly by another 9/11 event, an EMP, China, the UN, or Russia, by air, land or sea, or even a combination of all those. Food, water and medications will be weaponized, as will vaccine passports. The insane mandates to get everyone COVID-19 vaccinated should never be lost on discerning Christians. Elite wickedness on many fronts now progressively dominates the world. This and much worse to come is the new normal.

And you need to be prepared, because God will NOT rescue you or your loved ones via a pre-trib rapture. Why? Because the Father will NEVER deny His own Word, nor the Word of His own Son Jesus Christ. The Father and the Son are One, They are indivisible, the Father did not say one thing and the Son another; nor did Jesus say one thing and His apostles another, their testimonies agreed one with another. God is not the author of confusion, yet the church pits the testimony of Jesus against the tradition of men regarding the rapture, and mandates the pre-trib rapture tradition far above the testimony of Jesus Christ. But what one sows, he will also reap!

The elite continue manufacturing one crisis after another. They know how to get what they want, and nothing will stop them from succeeding. Nothing will stop them from subjecting the world to their evil desires of wealth, power and control. They’ll increase international tensions, religious and social divisions, violence and wars; that’s who the fourth beast-kingdom is and what it does. And it’s a spiritual shame that Christian ministers fearing the truth are not preaching preparatory truths to Christians, warning them of the tribulation to come, to prepare people to endure to the end of this present wicked age as Jesus taught at Matt. 24:13 and Matt. 28:20. The responsible and loving administration of God’s Word ignores no part of the end-time gospel of Christ.

Concerning America’s losses in Afghanistan, this headline from thegatewaypundit.com – “It’s Worse than We Thought: Taliban Seized 75,000 Vehicles, 600,000 Weapons and 200 Aircraft in Afghanistan Leftover by Biden Admin”. Not only did President Biden get Americans and allies killed, but militarily empowered a terrorist organization and allowed the Taliban to release from U.S. prisons thousands of terrorist prisoners which will only strengthen the forces of evil across the Middle East and ultimately around the world. And those terrorists are coming to America, many are already here, to help finish what they began twenty years ago! Having rejected God, America’s defeat in Afghanistan shows just how militarily weakened America has become.

True Christians will be about the business of answering God’s call, teaching the good news of enduring salvation, never silencing the difficult path which includes the 7-year tribulation. We have the testimony of God’s Son and the Revelation of Jesus Christ, warning of the difficulties of the tribulation. If we love God and love others, as the mantra of so many churches indicate, then we’ll speak the Word of God boldly, being unafraid to expose the pre-trib rapture lie and traditions of men. If we say we love God and our fellowman, then we’ll demonstrate that love by defending and teaching the testimony of Jesus for the end-times and thereby equip one another to endure until the end as the Son of God taught. Ignoring the post-trib gathering of Christ’s elect at Matt. 24:29–31 together with many confirming Scriptures is the mandate of the pre-trib rapture teaching, but is altogether reprehensible, unloving and does grave violence to Jesus, the Truth.

Dark days for America and the world are before us, and how we, the elect of Christ respond to them will prove or disprove our professed faith in Christ and His testimony. Let me encourage you in the love of Christ, who taught more about the end-times than others, to be equipped and prepared in His Word, to discern the signs of the times and prepare accordingly. The elite incite fear and reprisals against any who do not conform to their totalitarian demands. Indeed, we are witnessing the “fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet” (Dan. 7:7). Resisters are the residue, resisting the fourth beast-kingdom’s authoritarian demands. But I warn you by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, you will never be rescued by a pre-trib rapture. America and all nations are being sold out and driven into submission by the elite, and at their behest calculated terrorism will grip this dying world to usher in the 7-year rule of the Antichrist.

America will not be spared from the devastation to come in the near future. Government leaders are in the throes of enforcing the will of the elite, including Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Business, and all who are aligned with them. Dear reader, decide now that you will be found faithful to the “Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end” (Heb. 3:6). “For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps” (1 Peter 2:21).

Finally, I don’t know how much longer I’ll be posting thefridayletter.com as conservative and Christian websites are being attacked and silenced by agents of the New World Order, and with government encouragement and approval. Many thousands of attacks have already come against thefridayletter.com. I know too that, many Christians are hostile toward those who defend Christ and His end-time testimony rather than their church traditions. At some point the internet will be taken down by the elite to stop communications between Christians, conservatives and those who resist the New World Oder. But before that event occurs I want to offer a sincere “Thank you” to everyone who has supported this ministry with prayer, emails, phone calls and other notes.

I love you in Christ,

Marlin J. Yoder

About the author

I'm a non-denominational ordained minister, and have written TheFridayLetter.com for many years and teach the truths of Jesus Christ with an emphasis on the end-times. This on-line and in-person ministry to which God called me helps many people to know the truths of Christ rather than traditions of men which make "the word of God of no effect" (Mark 7:13).


  1. Excellent and we’ll written. The question “are you ready for what’s coming” is so relevant in this day. Our only hope resides in the Lord Jesus Christ and His eternal word which shall never pass away.

    1. Hi Vicky, and thank you for your thoughtful question. No, I do not believe the COVID-19 vaccine to be THE mark of the beast, but I do believe it is the preparatory tool of Satan in preparing the world for it. We are witnessing the fourth beast-kingdom of Dan. 2:40 and Dan. 7:7 in exercising its wicked authority world-wide. In my opinion, this vaccine is a measure globalists have developed to depopulate the world, which is foremost in the minds of men like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates, men with extreme power, money and influence. God bless you.

  2. Marlin,

    I pray the Lord will blind those who will try to stop the Friday Lefter so they cannot see it amongst all the other sites. That the Lord will continue to inspire you and continue granting you the boldness you need to write the letter. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

  3. Marlin, though I have mentioned to many recently, that the internet will eventually be done away with, my heart sank when in your letter I read, “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be posting thefridayletter.com as conservative and Christian websites are being attacked and silenced by agents of the New World Order…” I too am concerned that your website, our website, and all websites dispatching the truth of the Word of God will indeed be finally removed from the reach of the average individual seeking biblical content! But, we must maintain an eternal perspective concerning all of these beginnings of sorrow that will indeed lead to the end of this age.

    As you Marlin, I see myself as a strong proponent of the enduring to the end message. Whether we endure to the end of this age or to the end of our lives, according to Jesus, enduring to the end will be eternally rewarded with our being saved. And until then, and especially when the internet no longer exists, we must be found by Jesus studying to show ourselves approved unto God as workers who are not ashamed of the true gospel message of enduring to the end. Though the majority of preachers refuse to proclaim a message of enduring to the end, Jesus declared that this message, the message of enduring to the end shall be preached in all the world and then the end will come.

    And the truth is, that three angelic beings before the end will be dispatched to preach to all the world the message of enduring to the end. According to the book of Revelation chapter 14, these angels will warn the end time occupants of the earth to “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and to worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

    This is in response to that which takes place in chapter 13 of Revelation. A beast rises out of the sea of humanity and another beast rises out of the earth. And whether the first beast represents the Antichrist, and the second beast represents the False Prophet is not as important as the biblical fact that the second beast commissions men of the earth to create an image of the first beast, and then all men, all women, and all young people are mandated to worship the image of the beast or to be be killed.

    Thank the Lord the three angels of Revelation chapter 14 preach the biblical message of enduring to the end. They will not require an internet to obey God’s command to one last time warn the living occupants of earth to not be consumed and deceived by the miracles, signs, and lying wonders displays of deception. The third angel will proclaim to all who have spiritual ears to hear what the Holy Spirit of God is saying to the true end time church of Jesus Christ, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark [or marker] on his [or her] forehead or on his [or her] hand, he [or she] shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is [will be] poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He [or she] shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lord.”

    And according to John, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep [or obey] the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me [John], ‘Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'” It is extremely important that we obtain and maintain an eternal perspective of end time events. Otherwise, how will we successfully endure to the end while desiring to live godly lives in Christ Jesus?

    Harvest time is fast approaching! Thank you Marlin for your continued encouragement and revealing of end time events occurring all around us. If the earthly connection of the internet is severed due to the overwhelming and abounding lawlessness, know this, that you have been used of God to be a tremendous help in our faithfully desiring to endure to the end in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command of Matthew 10.22, Matthew 24.13, and Mark 13.13. Therefore, as you Marlin, I also believe Jesus thought the enduring to the end gospel message was extremely important especially for those alive in this most possible final generation.

    Thanks Marlin, and thank the Lord for His equipping you for every good work these last thirteen years. In Him Always, Brother Mike…
