You may have nationalistic optimism for America’s future, or return to a pre-COVID-19 normal, but such optimism is misplaced and wrong. But if you’re optimistic in the end-time teachings of Christ and discern that the seven-year tribulation comes soon, and you’ve prepared like the five wise virgins of Matt. 25:1–13, then your optimism is rightly grounded in the Lord Christ Jesus.
2022 will be much worse than 2021, as will be years thereafter. The New World Order (NWO) has now formed to the point where there’s no return to normal. Evil-inspired people are now in control and they’re preparing the way for Antichrist whose desire is the destruction of mankind made in the image of God. They’re both willing and able to commit global genocide by despotic mandates of their authoritarian controls, and while a few will resist, those few will not succeed.
Totalitarian controls will grow without restraint and many will accept it like the metaphoric frog slow-cooked in a kettle and will accept the increasing wickedness as normal. The continued loss of freedoms will infuriate many, some even to violence, but even violence against the tyranny of those whose goal is the NWO and fulfilling the UN’s 2030 Agenda and Great Reset of 2021 will not succeed. As God removes His restraint on evil, it will produce more satanic authoritarianism.
The first 1,260 days (42 months) of the seven-year biblical tribulation will set the final stage for Antichrist seizing global control for the last 1,260 days of great tribulation. In that effort people will be conditioned and made willing to accept the malevolent and tyrannical rule of “the beast”. Whether you realize it or not, the present COVID-19 plandemic and vaccination mandates have prepared the world for the first 1,260 days of the harlot-beast rule of forced global obedience.
Proof of COVID-19 vaccinations (aka Vaccination Passports) are now being required to dine in public cafés and restaurants; or to use any public forms of transportation; and in the near future will even be required to enter grocery stores. (It’s already occurring in some places.) Even now food is being weaponized by mandating Vaccine Passports to access restaurants in New York City, and many other ungodly-run cities where leaders enjoy new-found powers of globalism.
The global collapse of current monetary systems is underway. According to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda, a redistribution of wealth under a new monetary system will occur. The issue has become global equality which alone will inspire wars. The elite want the world to think they’re concerned about people, but they’re not at all concerned about people—only their own desires that will give them more power, money and control over the global population.
Climate change is real, but not for reasons given by globalist’s fake-news narrative. It’s not caused by man using fossil fuels. Weather modifications and climate change is created by man’s geo-engineering; ungodly people are destroying the earth. And on the Day of the Lord, God will “destroy those who destroy the earth” (Rev. 11:18). They believe themselves to be God, and take liberties to geo-engineer the weather, creating weather violence. But they’ll reap what they sow.
Alien beings are a spiritually-grim reality, but not for reasons given by NASA. What the world calls space aliens discerning believers know to be reemerging demonic beings to flood the earth as God’s restraint on evil lessens, just “as it was in the days of Noah” (Luke 17:26). Evil spirits masquerading as space aliens will lead many to believe that aliens are mankind’s creators. The deception that these demonic beings bring to mankind will be spiritually intoxicating to all who are not firmly grounded by faith in Christ and the witness of Scripture. But many lukewarm and compromised Christians will fall away believing the deceptive message of those already present demonic beings which will soon reveal their ungodly identities. And based on what we currently know about Antarctica, an uninhabitable region, I believe those evil entities have been reserved there and will soon ascend en masse to cover the whole earth. Rejection of truth will flourish.
Beware! Jesus warned “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many” (Matt. 24:11). False prophets have public platforms simply because many ignorant Christians don’t know how to vet a true prophet according to God’s Word, and then allow those self-aggrandizing charlatans to get away with one false prophesy after another! It’s shameful! Listen to what God said: “when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him” (Deut. 18:22). Believers, that’s how you discern a prophet! In this regard many false prophets said former President Trump would be re-inaugurated for a second consecutive term on January 20, 2021. And when that failed, with unrepentant hearts they yet continued to mislead believers, saying Trump would return to office by August 2021. They didn’t hear from God! Leave false prophets alone! From their pink hair to their white robes, do not believe them!
Many of former President Trump’s ardent supporters are now turning against him vehemently. Why? Because under his watch, he supported the untested, experimental, COVID-19 vaccines with all his might. This was shocking! I was dismayed over his defense of lying Dr. Fauci and Big Pharma! Did he become compromised by Big Pharma’s million dollar contribution to his 2016 inaugural campaign? It’s my belief that he is now either part of the globalist problem, or he’s ill-informed and ignorant of the unquestionable fact that the vaccines he rammed through under his Operation Warp Speed have killed more people than all other vaccines combined for the last 30 years! Yet, Trump is the man false prophets were drooling over returning to office! Trump was merely a four-year reprieve for American believers, but now that reprieve is gone.
The mark of the beast comes at mid-tribulation. The path to that mark has already been paved by the COVID-19 plandemic, its lawless lockdowns, variants, and mandated vaccines that were not resisted by the majority. And why? Because so many are unable to discern the signs of the times; they trust governments and go along to get along…which will also be the mantra for Antichrist’s mark of the beast. “Want to feed your family?”—here, just take this mark—little different from the COVID-19 vaccines! Yes, the mark will require one’s voluntary acceptance, but so too were all the vaccinations and boosters until there was a resistance! That resistance inspired mandates. And at the time of the mark when people are hungry they won’t be thinking, “Oh, is this wrong, is this worshiping the beast?” No, their sole focus will be on buying food to survive! And “He [Antichrist] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Rev. 13:16–17).
Warning! Don’t ever think evil spirits don’t know God’s Word that prophetically reveal end-time truths and warnings! They do know, and they know just how to twist God’s Word to make deceit look good. That’s how the deceptive pre-trib rapture became cemented in church! All it took was for a few prominent, respected academics to drink the kool-aid of deceit, and deception became entrenched in the church as God’s Word, though in fact, it departed from God’s Word and from the truth and very testimony of Jesus! Yet “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10)! I pray that Jesus’ testimony and Holy Spirit have your attention before it’s too late.
Right now you may be asking, “Brother Marlin, why do you feel you’re right and thousands of other pastors and teachers who preach and teach the pre-trib rapture are wrong?” I’m glad you asked. It’s not at all about who’s right or wrong—it’s ALL about who believes and defends the testimony of Jesus Christ vs those who do not! Jesus is the Truth, sinful man is not! Jesus is the One qualified to deliver end-time truths. But as it is, traditions made null and void His end-time testimony for the gathering of Christ’s elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31), and that’s a tragedy of no small proportion. As I’ve said many times, there’s not a single verse of Scripture in the Bible that says Christ gathers His elect pre-tribulation! And that truth reveals the intoxication of the pre-trib rapture deception. And I’m not surprised by that, because in unbelief the lukewarm will always take the wide path of least resistance. Ancient Israel did the same. It’s the way of the flesh. It’s the way of deceit, and there’s nothing new under the sun, Eccl. 1:9.
What more can I say or write regarding the end-times? In June 2007 the Lord burdened my heart to write truths of His Word regarding the end-times and gathering of His elect. I’ve defended the Word of the Lord my God. I’ve done my best by the help of the Holy Spirit to teach, to warn and to equip all who have ears to hear what Jesus Christ and His Spirit taught. You heard the saying “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink”, well, that too applies to the Truth. As regards Dispensational theology, I agree with Robert B. Thompson, who like me, upon faith in Christ was taught to believe the pre-trib rapture, but later, upon a deep, personal examination of Scripture concluded: “I now was convinced that Dispensational theology is nothing less than a sophisticated form of rebellion against Christ and his Kingdom.” Amen!
In these 14 1/2 years of writing thefridayletter.com, I’ve learned that if Christians do not believe Christ, nor prepare in His end-time testimony, they certainly will never believe me in my defense of His Words. As an ambassador of Christ, all I could do is point people to Christ. And I’ve done that, and will continue doing so as the Spirit of God leads. After next week I will suspend writing thefridayletter.com, and write only when God’s Spirit leads me to write. But at some point in the not-too-distant future, in an effort to protect my family and getting off-grid, I will shut down this site altogether. Let’s pray for one another as we “see the Day approaching” (Heb. 10:25). Amen!
In prayerful consideration of reducing my writings I ended with a four-part series detailing truths Christians need to know and believe to endure to the end of this present age as Christ taught. I’m an ordinary man with faith, NOT in traditions of men, but in Christ who suffered and died for my sins, and gave me eternal life with God and His Christ. In loving Christ, and loving fellowman as myself, how could I NOT defend Jesus’ end-time Words that have eternally deadly consequences if His testimony is ignored? For me, that’s not at all possible. Jesus is the Truth, not sinful man. I invite you to believe the Lord Jesus Christ, God, and not the Dispensational traditions of men.
