Part 7 - Behold, I Come Quickly
Wolves in Sheepís Clothing
Matthew 7:13-15; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:15-25; Romans 1:26-28;
1 Corinthians 6: 9-10; II Thessalonians 2: 3-4; I Timothy 4:1; I John
Many false prophets have gone throughout the
land, deceiving and being deceived. A spirit of Antichrist is
already at work, infiltrating secularized church systems, and entrenching
itself ever more deeply in congregations where it has already gotten a
The Antichrist spirit denies
the validity and the relevance of My Word, especially for todayís warped
society. That satanic spirit seeks to undermine the integrity of the Words
of My mouth, and to cast a shadow upon My Holiness. Satan
interjected a question in the mind of Eve: "Did God REALLY forbid you to
eat that fruit?" In like manner, the enemy is saying even to born-again
Christians: "Does God REALLY forbid this or that practice? Arenít
these more enlightened times? Does He REALLY expect you to depend
totally upon Him alone? Perhaps," satan whispers, "God now expects
you to develop powers latent within yourself so you can meet all
your own needs by unleashing your own faith, independently of Him.
Youíll never grow as a person if you donít." Eve fell for satanís
lies hook, line, and sinker.
This same demonic influence has been unleashed by satan in these
last days to acclimate religious people to gross error, so that when the
Son of Perdition and his False Prophet rise to power, they will encounter
no resistance from a populace already steeped in a false humanistic
gospel. The devil knows that people chafe at My commandments, but
that there is still the God-given urge within them to worship. After
the Rapture, false churches will proliferate. They will consider My Word
to be outmoded and follow their own humanistic credos. There is a
way which seems to be good, but the end of that road is death!
The existence of a literal heaven and hell is
being questioned by skeptics who desperately want to believe that there is
no eternal judgment for sinners, and no heaven of holiness where
only sanctified souls may dwell. If you are filled with My Spirit,
you will want a heaven where there is no defilement of sin, and where all
life and pleasure is centered around My Son, Who is soon to restore
Creation to her former glory.
There is a false teaching circulating that hell
is not a literal place, just a state of being. Likewise, it has been
alleged that heaven is not real, either. To support these false
doctrines, you must discredit My Word and call Me a liar. It would
overwhelm you to hear the screams of lost souls who are even now suffering
the torments of hell fire because they rejected My perfect Sacrifice for
sin and tried to make their own way of redemption. Yes, My Word says
plainly: Hell is a PLACE prepared for the devil and his angels, a
PLACE where Judas Iscariot went after he betrayed Christ and killed
himself, as Acts 1:16-25 teaches. It is foolish for
well-meaning preachers to put a soft spin on hellís horror in toned-down
Just before My Son was crucified, buried,
resurrected from the dead and taken back up into heaven, He comforted His
disciples with these words: Let not your heart be troubled; ye
believe in God, believe also in Me. In MY Fatherís House are many
mansions:If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a
PLACE for you. And if I go and prepare a PLACE for you, I will come
again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, ye may be also.
Heaven is more than a mere condition of soul. It is a prepared place
for a prepared people.
A Demonic Delusion
John 6:50-58; 15:1-10; I Corinthians 10:1-11; II Peter
2:20-22; Jude 4
Many will be so duped by the
"once-saved-always-saved" lie that I will catch more than a few professing
believers on a bed of adultery at the time of my appearing, or sitting in
front of their computers downloading porn. Blinded by years of
spiritual apathy and too hardened to seek after My holiness, these people
will excuse themselves by saying: "God knows Iím only a weak human
being who can claim no righteousness of my own. Jesus paid it all,
and itís only because of His goodness I can make the Rapture, anyway.
These millions of sheep are being led
astray by the demonic doctrine of unconditional eternal security.
They think "So long as I mumble Ďsorry, Lordí before I drift off to
sleep, they can still have their fun and still make the Rapture."
How foolish, how unspeakably vile a thought! If a
backslider partakes of the sins of this world rather than feasting on the
Life of the Lamb of God, he shall not be delivered from the Hour of
Tribulation wrath to come.
Only those Israelites who fed themselves on the
Paschal Lamb were delivered from the land of Egypt. Those few who
didnít had to suffer eternal consequences.
Warn the Wicked
Ministers who refuse to gloss over the issue of
eternal judgment are branded as unloving, obnoxious fanatics.
But if you saw your neighborís house on fire in the wee hours of the
morning, would you not make as much noise as possible to rouse him from
his slumber? Ordinarily it would be unloving and rude to awaken a
neighbor from a sound sleep. But he is in danger of death, and you
would be most negligent not to wake him. Indeed, his blood would be
on your hands if he perished in the flames because of your indifference.
Apathetic saints need to regain a sense of
urgency about the peril lost sinners are in. Apostate ministers who
preach only "love" will bear a terrible responsibility before their flock
and before Me once the Rapture has come, and deceived souls are left
behind to face the period of Tribulation Wrath.
The Spirit of Antichrist
I John 2:22; II John 7
The spirit of Antichrist denies the virgin birth,
and thus rejects My own Fatherhood of Christ the Redeemer. This is a
denial of the divinity of My Son; and thus, a denial of the spotlessness
of the Lamb of God, Who was offered up to make atonement for the sins of
mankind. There are many false ministers who scoff at the divinity of
Christ and the virgin birth, for their "god" is a distant deity
powerless to save. He is a fanciful fabrication inspired by satan,
the author of all "feel-good" religions. These demonic belief systems
contradict My provision for sin in Christ Jesus. They demand
no real repentance on the part of their devotees.
Heretical religious leaders are now saying that I have
changed My mind about what is right or wrong. Satan doesnít storm
the vestibule of their churches wearing a red suit and
waving a pitchfork. He got his foot in the door of cold churches by
degrees, by revamping his image to look "respectable". First,
compromisers caved in to popular pressure and said that sex outside of
marriage is okay, "so long as there is "real commitment". This gave
many backsliders the boldness to do what they were doing anyway_ignoring
the clear warnings of My Word against fornication. Next they gave
the green light to homosexuality, in spite of the plain admonitions of
Scriptures in both testaments against this filthy sin. Some clerics are
even willing to unite same-sex partners in "marriage", but I do not unite
them! Truly they have gone the full gamut, discarding all the godly
prohibitions of My Word. Promiscuity has been given the green light
by unprincipled ministers,who say that the only real sin one can commit is
not to have a "gentle and understanding attitude" toward those who
commit these evil sins. These deceivers are peddling a cost-free
Christianity, but I said in My Word: Broad is the way which leads to
destruction, and many go down that road. Those Who love My commandments
are accused by pleasure-obsessed souls of being narrow-minded, but the
road to life is narrow, and few there are who find it. I am
inseparable from My Holiness. I am certainly not ashamed of it,
though false church leaders reject it as being "politically
incorrect". To knowingly reject My Holiness is to reject Me, and I
will reject such a reprobate in the Presence of My Father!
My Unspeakable Grace
Daniel 8:25; 9: 24-27; Luke 14:16-24; Acts 28:25-29,
For nearly two thousand years I have extended My
Hand of Mercy toward rebellious sinners of all nations, entreating them to
come into My Ark of Salvation and be spared from the wrath to come.
Many have come to Me and become part of My eternal family, but only a very
small percentage of mankind have been willing to enter into Life Eternal.
If sinners had been offered salvation on their own terms, they would have
been far less reluctant to receive it, and would have had to spend
eternity as sinners. But imagine what heaven would be
like if I broadened My Narrow Way of Salvation. It wouldnít be
heaven at all if people were free to bring their old sins with them when
they came. It would become an even more tragic place than this
earth; for it would cease to be My holy Paradise. It would be
rendered unfit for those pilgrims who had suffered for the sake of the
Truth, and looked forward in faith to a restful place free of the taint of
But the vast majority of mankind are unwilling to
part with their sin. Thatís why they hate Me so much. Others
are apathetic toward Me, and see Me only as a convenient safety valve to
ease the hour of death. I have been extremely merciful and patient
toward fallen man for a very long time. So many people take a rain
check on My invitation to eternal life. They think My merciful grace will
always be there for them whenever they get in the mood to accept it.
Under the Old Covenant, only those Gentiles
who had sacrifices offered for them according to the Law of Moses could
share in the same salvation I offered Israel. These few converts, like the
believing Jews, looked forward in faith to the coming of the one perfect
Sacrifice Whose blood would make a final atonement for sin. Before
their rejection of Christ as their Messiah, My primary concern was the
welfare of the Nation of Israel.
I could not get My own nation to accept My
invitation to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, though I offered it first
to them. Yet I was determined that My Banquet Hall would not be
lacking for wedding guests. Throughout this Church Age I have concentrated
on gathering individuals, both Jews and Gentiles, into the Kingdom
of God, to be spiritually united to My dear Son. But this Age of
Grace is fast closing.
My Prophet Daniel was heartbroken over the apostasy and
subsequent exile of his nation to a foreign land. He yearned for the
rebuilding of Jerusalem and its Holy Temple. I gave him a
revelation of 70 weeks of years (490 altogether), which I would devote to
the outworking of the salvation of the Nation of Israel. This period
spans the passage of time from when Artaxerxes the Persian ordered
the rebuilding of the City of Jerusalem to the time the Messiah
would come to restore the Kingdom of God to Israel. At the end of the 69th
week the Messiah would be cut off (killed) for sins not His own. It was
exactly 483 years from when Artaxerxes issued the decree to rebuild the
Temple, to the day Christ died to make atonement for sin.
After the true Lamb of God was sacrificed, Israelís prophetic time clock
was stalled by the beginning of the Church Age. Once the Church is
removed and the Antichrist brokers a false peace treaty between
Israel and her adversaries, the clock will start ticking again, and the
seven-year Tribulation will begin in earnest. This brief era is called
Danielís Seventieth Week.
At that time, I shall deal directly with
Israel again as a nation, that I might prepare her to receive her
soon-coming King. Even then, salvation will be offered to Jew and
Gentile alike. Those hold-outs who finally receive
salvation during the Great Tribulation will do so at great risk to
their lives. Many will lament that they are not in
heaven with those who came to Christ during the Church Age, safely removed
from the perils of earth.
A Burdensome Stone
Zechariah 12:2-3; 14:2
I even keep the saints in heaven informed of
developments on earth which relate to Bible prophecy about the end times.
I have just told some heavenly saints that the principal nations of the
earth are vitally concerned about the prospect of achieving lasting peace
in the Promised Land, and that the biggest bone of contention is the final
status of the City of Jerusalem. I let them know that at this present
moment Palestinians and Israelis are feuding over rights to the Temple
Mount, and that this explosive issue will not be finally
resolved until I come again.
I said in My Word that Jerusalem would become a burdensome
stone to all nations who meddle in her affairs. The heated argument
over who owns Jerusalem will be the fuse which ignites the bloodiest
conflict in all history, the Battle of Armageddon.
Certain politicians would dearly love to see a
firm peace treaty signed, and be able to take the credit for it, so as to
ensure an honorable legacy for themselves in the history books. But
they are unaware that the only Middle East "peace" which will come before
My Return will be that false peace brokered by the diabolical genius of
Antichrist. If only those vain politicians realized the terrible
peril this world is in, the history books would be the least of their
Oh, the sorrow which could be avoided if people
would only heed the explicit warnings of My Word!
A Dark Train Coming
Matthew 16:3; Luke 12:56; 21:25-28
All of the terrible upheaval in the
Middle East, and satanic activity in other parts of the world are mere
foreshocks of the terrible Tribulation Period which is even at
the doors. The enemy is even now setting the mood for the Tribulation by
spreading a spirit of fear in the earth, through various calamities taking
place. You know a forest fire is getting closer when you feel the
hot breath of it coming on the wind.
Just as you can feel the rumblings of an
approaching train by standing on the tracks, discerning saints know that
they have not long before a dense curtain of darkness falls upon this
world, and the Age of Grace is over.
The Lord of Hosts
Exodus 15:3;Psalms 45:3-4; Rev. 19:11-16; 21:5
In that day, saith the Lord, I shall emerge upon
the world scene in the fullness of My role as a Man of War. I came
to destroy the works of the devil, not merely give My people the grace to
bear up under them and take them cheerfully.
On the glorious day when we can truly say that
"all things have been made new and there is a New Heaven and a New Earth",
it will be the culmination of a lengthy, painstaking process I
undertook to destroy all the effects of sin, but by then it shall be
fully completed. And if I end up failing to destroy ALL the works of the
devil, then it would be to My discredit just as much as if Iíd failed to
wipe all your sins away!
That includes everything sinners have ever
done to hurt the earth and, more importantly, the persecution they
have waged against believers in Christ. I absolutely will not give
the devil the satisfaction of knowing he has permanently damaged the
hearts or bodies of any of My precious children who trust in Me.
Right now I am even strapping on My sword to go
forth to do battle with rebellious nations who have turned the earth into
one vast Sodom and have rejected My salvation. I am not a meek mouse
hiding in a corner watching the devil do his dirty work. He is in
for the very worst bruising ever, and the days of his kingdom are surely
Winter, with all the hardships it brings to
nature, does not normally hit suddenly. Autumn is the prelude to
winter, a gentle harbinger of a far worse chill to come.
Weeks before the first
snowfall, you notice a bracing nip in the air. Tree leaves
begin to die, and fall to the ground. Wild birds and animals make
last-minute preparations to ensure their survival over the long winter
Catastrophic news events portend far worse
calamities to come. The spiritual atmosphere of the earth is
growing ever more grim, and My people are the only ones who have anything
to smile about. Sinners feverishly party the night away to forget
about life. But beneath their jaded grins lurks an awareness
that they truly are on the eve of destruction and this world is the only
so-called "paradise" theyíll ever know.
Even wild birds and beasts depend on Me to
sustain them through winter. Even "dumb" animals heed My warnings of
impending danger and flee from it before it arrives. If only people
would turn their lives and their worries over to Me, they could be hidden
in the Day of Wrath which is almost here.
Godís Whirlwind of Judgment
Nehemiah 4:14; Psalms 58:9; Isaiah 40:24; Jere. 23:19-20;
25:30-33; 30:23; Hosea 8:7
Behold a whirlwind comes. A whirlwind is
caused by two clashing opposing winds. For 2000 years a mild wind of
grace and mercy has blown throughout the earth, pleading with the sons of
men to repent and respond to My great Love. Rather than destroying
the wicked as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah I have patiently waited
for men everywhere to repent. But most of those who have heard the
Word of Reconciliation have hurled it back in My face in contempt.
A much harsher, colder wind is blowing once more, that
of justice and judgment. As you stand on the border between
the Tribulation Era and the Church Age, where the two contrary winds now
meet, you can feel the conflict in your spirit. The two opposing
winds are fighting each other for dominance. Mercy cries out against
judgment, but judgment must also be done. Those sins left unrepented
of and uncovered by the precious Blood of Christ must finally be dealt
with through the judgment of the transgressor. My whirlwind of fury will
fall upon the heads of those who have opposed the going forth of My
Gospel of Reconciliation in the earth.
Things will be markedly different in the
Tribulation Era. I will no longer demand that My chosen righteous ones
turn the other cheek in meekness. They will be free to take up arms to
fight for the safety of their loved ones whenever those bearing the Mark
of the Beast attack them to destroy them. My saints will not pray
for Me to bless their hardened enemies, those who will have have finally
decided which side he or she is on. My saints will even have My
permission to pray for the destruction of all those who bear the Mark of
the Beast because those sinners will be beyond all possibility of
redemption. When I come again I will destroy all those who have
persecuted the righteous, slandered them and unjustly shed their blood.
The unprecedented "amen" in your spirit
towards judgment upon a sinful world does not signify a sinful lack of
divine love on your part. It results from a divine revelation of
where I have placed you in history and what I am about to do at this time.
The convergence of the two conflicting dispensations on My time line
signifies no longer a predominance of peace and reconciliation, but
a great Whirlwind of Judgment blowing in the earth rising up to destroy
the hardened in heart.
Those who stand before Me to be judged for their
sins will find that that same gentle wind of mercy and grace is now
blowing contrary to them. It whispers no more My sweet, tender
message of love to their hardened impenitent hearts, but proclaims loudly
against them that they are worthy of eternal death for rejecting My offer
of salvation through the Blood of Christ.
Let those who have eyes to see and ears to hear
be sensitive to what I am doing in the earth today, and be fully
aware of the times and the seasons, that it is perilously late for lost
sinners and backsliders.
Terrorism: Supernaturally Orchestrated
Deuteronomy 32: 22-25; Romans 3:15-17; II Corinthians 10:4
Do not be deceived, My people. The devil
laughs at manís War on Terrorism. Why? Because you cannot defeat a
supernatural devil with guns and bombs! The root cause of this
trouble is demonic, not human.
Throughout the Church Age, My people have
travailed in prayer and fasting, doing spiritual warfare against the devil
and all his evil works. The world has stood by, mocking My saints as
lunatics because these wise ones could see where the devil was taking this
world, and sinners felt no alarm themselves. Rather, the devil kept lost
sinners sedated by the wretched pleasures of this evil world.
Whenever mankind has gone to war before, it has been against
enemies much easier to pinpoint and fight. Take Nazi Germany as an
example. The allies fought long and hard with airplanes and ground
troops. They dumped tons of bombs on Germanyís cities. In time, the
resistance of the German army was broken, and they were
finally forced to surrender. An armistice was signed,
then the war in Europe was declared over.
In a normal war, the soldiers get to go home after all
opposing armies have been subdued. There is a sense of finality about the
victory won, a feeling of closure where soldiers begin to try to put the
whole sorry mess behind them and rebuild their lives in what they consider
a time of peace. When the war is over, the soldiers get a respite, however
brief, before another conflict erupts somewhere else and fighting resumes.
This current world conflict will never be
resolved until My Son returns to defeat satanís forces at Armageddon!
This War on Terrorism is but the prelude to the devilís
symphony of the Great Tribulation. But take heart, My people.
Your redemption from the earth is much nearer than you think!
The Rapture and Its Aftermath
I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 12:7-9; Chapter
Distress shall come upon all nations when I
snatch up My loved ones to be with Me. It will be "business as
usual" one moment. Then in a split second, many millions will
disappear. Countless spouses, children, parents, and co-workers will
vanish before the very eyes of unbelievers, leaving them in a state of
turmoil. Drivers will vanish from the seats of cars, causing tragic
accidents on the highways. Airline pilots will disappear, and jumbo
jets will plummet into the ocean. Christian surgeons will vanish in
the middle of operations. Young infants and tiny children will
vanish from the arms of unconverted parents. Rebellious teenagers
will be left to fend for themselves after their godly parents have gone to
meet Me in the air.
An epidemic of panic will ensue, as casualties
mount and orphaned youngsters range the streets, looting and stealing in
order to survive. There will be rioting, and total disregard for law
and order as the restraining ministry of the Holy Spirit resident in My
Church is snatched from this wicked planet.
On that chaotic day, an emergency session of the
U.N. will be called. World economies will crash, along with the
stock markets. People will wander aimlessly, lacking coherent
direction in their lives. Ever unwilling to acknowledge the Truth of
My Word, world government leaders will try to put a glib politicianís spin
on the Rapture. They will attribute the phenomenon to an invasion
from another galaxy. Martial law will be declared in many nations in
an effort to curtail the looting of shops by the panicky populace.
They will be obsessed with stockpiling the necessities of life;
because in their eyes, the Rapture was a disaster which struck the earth,
the culmination of some mysterious terrorist plot against law-abiding
citizens. Survival will be foremost in their minds.
A power vacuum will be created when America will
topples from its precarious position as the worldís sole superpower. Its
economy, which was built on artificially inflated dollars, shall
crumble because of the great anarchy created by the repercussions of the
Rapture.Vulnerable and weakened, America shall be easy prey for
business speculators from the Far East who will take advantage of her
downfall. Europe will take a giant leap forward and unite politically
under a single leader, who is even now waiting in the wings. This
shall be done supposedly in the interest of restoring order and presenting
a united front against both extraterrestrial and Far Eastern attack.
Severely weakened economically and militarily, and desperate for an
umbrella of protection from oriental imperialism, America shall willingly
ally herself with the Son of Perdition, the Antichrist.
Communications systems will be jammed,
particularly in America, where there had been the greatest concentration
of teaching about the Rapture of the saints. Those who once scoffed
and mocked because it failed to occur in decades past will wander around
in shock. Great fear will strike the hearts of many nominal church
members and unbelievers. Menís hearts shall melt with fear for the awful
days which lie ahead for Planet Earth. Bibles left to collect dust on
shelves will be thumbed through and searched for answers by those who had
heard of the doctrine of the Rapture of the Church, but dismissed it as an
idle fantasy. Many liberal pastors and Bible teachers will
fall on their faces, crying out to Me for mercy; not only for their own
rejection of the Truth of My eternal Word, but because theyíd led others
astray with their watered-down dogma and downright lies. There will be
many who would have believed on Me had My Truth not been tampered with, or
explained away as irrelevant to an "enlightened age". But those
deceived souls will be left behind, along with their false teachers.
Spiders Spinning an Alibi
II Tim. 3:13
"Itís just terrorism," a lot of "Christian" politicians
will say once they regain their feet after the big shock. "If it had
really been the Rapture, I wouldnít be standing here saying this now.
After all, Iím a born-again believer too."
Once a deceiver, always a deceiver.
The Rapture Will Accelerate Societyís Decay
Proverbs 14:34; Isaiah 3:5
Christians are the salt which arrests the decay
of any society. Consider America, the mightiest democracy the world
has ever known. Once the Christians are gone, America will not only lose
its goodness, it will lose its greatness.
I see the day when Americans fearful for
their safety will give way to total paranoia. Security systems will
do a booming trade when the entire earth is enshrouded in Tribulation
darkness and crime increases because evil is no longer held in check.
Guns will be in the vast majority of homes. Those who can afford it
will even hire bodyguards by the hour to protect them when they must
venture outside their heavily padlocked homes. Entire communities of
moneyed elite will live behind gated walls. They will hole up in
communal fortresses guarded by security cameras and patrolled by personal
militia. Poorer people who cannot afford high-tech security
dwellings will be viewed with suspicion by those afraid to lose what they
have to robbers and muggers. What hell on earth it will be for those
who do not put their trust in Me in that dreadful hour!
How are the Mighty Fallen
America, consider Samson. His eyes were
fixed on his own muscular strength and the relative puniness of his foes.
Even when a far weaker foe (Delilah) captivated him with her guile, his
attitude was: "Iím not afraid of her Philistine friends. I
have defeated them in the past. Iíll get up and win my usual easy
victory without any problem."
Samson forgot I was the Source of his might and
instead trusted in his own natural strength. His wily enemy triumphed over
him and kept the victory till he finally learned his lesson the hard
America has made the same sad mistake, and unless
its attitude changes, it will meet the same sad fate.
Antichrist: the Lord of Lies
II Thessalonians 2:8-12
Once My people are removed from this planet, millions of people throughout
the world will know why they were left behind, because theyíd heard the
truth so many times before. Some even will have heard it hundreds of
times, but scoffed in unbelief. Such skeptics will be left behind
because they refused to believe without seeing proof of My direct
supernatural intervention in this evil world.
Multitudes will, because of the sudden
Rapture, at last be convinced that divine judgment upon sinners is
imminent. In their desperation, they will call upon the Lord Jesus Christ
to redeem them from their sins.
Yet many other sinners will only harden in their
determination to resist Me to the end. Both repentant and
unrepentant sinners will feel Me pricking at their conscience, convincing
them of the wickedness of their doings. But I cannot force anyone to
choose life eternal. The unrepentant will even resort to
self-deception to deaden their troubled consciences. And once the
initial shock of the Rapture begins to wear off, those people wonít
have to look far to find alternative answers to soothe their nagging sense
Some religious folk, who either forsook Christ,
the true Way of Salvation, or never accepted Him at all will be enraged at
Me for daring to leave them behind. These will be people who hardened
their own hearts against the Light of the True Gospel for fear it would
make them look foolish in the eyes of their pretentious peers. Such
sinners try to dictate to Me what My terms for accepting them into heaven
must be, and hope their so-called good works can earn them a place
Unwilling to suffer for the sake of the
Truth, these unrepentant reprobates will choose to believe the lies of
Antichrist, and will actually swear allegiance to him out of spite,
so they will lose their own souls.
The Antichrist will be catapulted to world
domination because he will preach what the populace wants to hear.
All men are basically good, he will claim, and all religions are equally
valid, so long as the belief system in question emphasizes a demonic kind
of "love" which embraces all kinds of "alternate
life-styles". Antichristís religion will promote a false brotherhood
and harmony among all men. The doctrines of sin and accountability
to a Holy God will be denounced as negative obsessions which undermine the
collective mental health of any civilized society.
To the delight of Antichristís disciples he and
his equally wicked False Prophet will assert that the great error of the
historical church was to lay undue emphasis upon the so-called sinfulness
of man. He will inflame the passions of many by recounting the
persecutions and inquisitions carried out in the Name of Christ to
punish so-called heretics. He will remind his listeners that great
church leaders even admitted the historical atrocities committed by
organized religion and asked forgiveness, then extended the olive branch
of friendship to their former foes.
The Antichrist will cleverly contend that the ones left
behind are really the blessed ones, chosen to join hands with him in
"building a more enlightened society". He will say that the
"Disappeared" merely merged into another dimension. In their
ignorance, he will assert, they could never have adjusted to his
envisioned brave new world of peace and harmony and would have been
a source of disharmony in it.
Antichrist will be enraged by reports of a great
company of Israelite men spreading my Gospel to the four corners of
the earth. These divinely protected men will comprise a task force of
144,000 specially selected evangelists who go far and wide to convert
sinners to Christ_a task presently assigned to the Church, which will then
be absent from the world.
Tribulation believers who reach out in love to
win the lost will be brutally persecuted for preaching the truths of sin
and eternal judgment. They will refuse the Mark of the Beast
identification system, for they will know that accepting the Mark would
constitute allegiance to the devilís Man of Sin and would cost them their
souls. This Mark will be introduced in order to exert control over the
earthís population, and to monitor their movements via communications
satellite. By means of a microchip ID implanted beneath the skin, a code
number readable by a scanner will link the individual to a huge data base
from which a staggering amount of personal information about him or
her can be accessed. The duped masses will be convinced that this is
necessary in order to curb rampant crime and prevent further outbreaks of
The Tribulation saints will be despised and reviled as
parasites preying on the hard-won "peace" of the Antichristís society.
They will be hated by sinners who desperately want to believe Antichristís
lie that their feelings of guilt for sin are unfounded, and human nature
is basically good.
When the Two Witnesses appear to preach my
impending judgment, hardened hearts will resent being shown their
utter depravity in the light of My holiness. They will report true
believers to the law as troublesome insurgents and potential terrorists.
Unable to take their frustrations out on the God in heaven Who sits
in judgment on them, they will vent their fury on His earthbound saints.
In that evil day, millions will seal their
testimony with their own blood.
Antichrist Will Fight Dirty
The wicked Man of Sin will use every dirty trick
in the book to prevent people from turning in faith to Me. One of
his most deplorable weapons will have been provided by fake ministers of
darkness who lived during the Church Age. He will cite examples of
TV preachers who lived like kings on donations supposedly earmarked for
famine relief and the spread of the Gospel. He will ask people why
they should put any credence in a Christ whose chief devotees had
sucked the life blood of the poor in His Name. He will even say good
riddance to Gospel-peddling parasites who were taken out of the world,
nevermore to plague humanity.
A few belatedly repentant charlatans will weakly
protest that Jesus had nothing at all to do with their chicanery, and
their continued presence on earth is proof of that. They will
tearfully acknowledge that I hated their wickedness so much they
were left behind while faithful Christians vanished. Nominal "Christian"
politicians and preachers alike will weep from abject humiliation when
their former evil works, glossed over before the Rapture of the
Church, are openly exposed for all the world to see. Former
fishers-for-funds will bewail their unwillingness to repent before I
caught up My people to be with Me in heaven. Because of them, some
sinners will only harden their hearts against Christ, even after the
Rapture. Despite the fact these poor penitents will plead with
people not to believe the Antichrist and to learn from their sad example.
These brave souls will try to make amends by
proclaiming the true Gospel of Christ, but Antichrist will execute them
for their efforts and try to silence many other believers through fear and
intimidation. Antichrist will point to himself as the epitome of
Christlike love and unselfish benevolence. He will cite his
successful peace-making policies, all his impressive social welfare
programs as proof positive of his own moral superiority to the raptured
Church and its Christ. He will avow that never before had the world
been in such a state of calm or people so prosperous as those who swear
allegiance to him. Antichrist will remind his ungodly listeners of
todayís twisted Prosperity gospel. He will use it as a
springboard to lampoon the saints of God for being poverty-stricken in
spite of their trust in the God of Israel.
Only the Tribulation Period will fully reveal the
immense harm done by todayís heartless hypocrites.
A Big ME$$ Will Be Left Behind!
Ecclesiastes 9:18; I Timothy 6:9-10; II Peter 2:1-3
Just why are some people apathetic and irreverent
toward the things of My Kingdom?
Because theyíve been burnt by religious
Just as Esau sold his inheritance for a mess
(meal) of pottage, many reprobates who once had a pure beginning with Me
are exchanging their eternal reward for a big mess of money. Thereís big
dollars to be made from religious shows which are promoted as
the miracle ministry of Christ Jesus.
I abhor all the trickery which goes on in My
Name, all the deception, all the hurts suffered by emotionally vulnerable
people who desperately need supernatural help to fix unfixable problems.
Clever devils that they are, charlatans hurt wounded souls further by
stringing them along with flashy mail-outs which promise the miracle is
"about to come", but they need to keep on sowing, for "those who sow in
tears shall reap in joy".
Sowing always means money, of course. Bogus
miracle ministries ask for your prayers, but thatís just a smokescreen.
Getting you to sow some money seed is their only priority. They suggest
that if I didnít reward you for the last donation, Iíll surely pour out My
blessing on you if only youíll send in the next.
Surprisingly, a lot of religious racketeers had a
very good beginning with Me. But such people failed to be sober and
vigilant, on guard against the lure of false riches which drowns a soul in
perdition. Usually they get drawn into this shady life of fishing
for funds little by little, until they forget their first love for Christ
altogether and come to believe theyíre really entitled to poor
peopleís money. One of their favorite excuses is this misapplied
Scripture: The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just (Proverbs
But those evildoers are without excuse.
Because of the unholy picture they have painted of a Holy God, they will
soon be stripped of their wealth and prestige. I can see them even
now from My perspective in eternity, writhing in front of church altars,
begging Me to forgive them and take them up to heaven, longing to be with
saints who kept themselves from idolatry and remained connected to
Christ through faith.
I also see the thousands who fell away from
Jesus because of their evil example. Many are the lost sheep and
backsliders who got so disillusioned and embittered by being duped
that they turned their backs on Christ altogether and were left
behind to suffer the Tribulation Period. Many will curse those
corrupt crooks who hindered them from knowing Christ as Savior; those
stumbling blocks who blinded them to the goodness of Christ; profane
scoundrels who twisted My Word in order to cash in on the
desperation and misplaced trust of these naive, hurting people.
What an awful mess those wicked racketeers will
have made for themselves, selling their precious relationship with their
Lord for a mess of money.
Because they so eagerly devoured lost lambs
hungry to find deliverance in Christ Jesus, theyíll be left behind to reap
the evil they have sown. They shall eat the fruit of their own doings, and
it shall be bitterness to their ruined souls.
A Rapture, Not a Rupture
Romans 13:11; I Thessalonians 5:9, II Timothy 4:8; Titus
2:13; Hebrews 9:28
Millions of believers have been wrongly
taught that I am only coming for an especially spiritual elite corps of
Christians who outshine all others, and that the rest of My Body must be
left behind to be purified by the judgments of the Tribulation. This has
caused needless fear and torment to a people whom I have called into the
rest of faith in the sufficiency of My completed work on Calvary.
Oh, My people, that teaching undercuts the magnitude of
My grace toward My Chosen. The purpose of the Tribulation is to punish the
world, not My beloved Bride. The Bridal company includes all my dear ones
who have kept faith with me with a submissive, repentant heart. Though
they might slip and fall because of human infirmity, those who pursue
after the things which please Me Will always call upon Me to lift them
back up so they can continue running the race to win the prize of the high
My Truth is profound, but it is not the convoluted
clutter contrived by cunning clergy who are only out to advance their own
agenda. The real truth is so simple a child could grasp it. I
promised in My Word that unto those who are looking for My appearing I
would appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
My Appearing and My Second Coming are two
separate events occurring at two different times in history. At the
Rapture I shall appear FOR My loved ones to take them home with Me to
heaven to celebrate the nuptials of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, when
I shall be spiritually united with My then-perfected Body the Church. At
the Second Coming I return WITH them to rule over this globe and restore
My law and order to it, to the praise of My Holy Father.
When I appear to take My own from this evil
world, our separation shall at last be ended, and you shall be
with Me forever. I shall then be physically present with the
entirety of My Body the Church, even as I have always been with them
in Spirit to guide and sustain them through the dark vale of this evil
Does this idea seem way too lenient to be
credible? A thousand times, no. Those who are looking for My
appearing will love the things of My Word. They will seek a closer
walk with Me, in happy anticipation of that holy hour when My Beloved,
once exiled from Me on earth, shall at last experience complete
spiritual union with the Beloved.
Darkness will Deepen
In the beginning of the Church Age, few had ever
heard about Jesus, and His redemptive love for mankind. The nations
of the earth were vaguely aware of a Great Creator Who had brought all
things into being, but they were in total darkness about the wonderful
Sacrifice I had provided for their sins. Indeed, very few had any
concept of how unutterably holy I am, and how great the need for
redemption and reconciliation with Me.
But now the Gospel message has been proclaimed to
the farthest ends of the earth. There are still pockets of ignorance
in this world, and I am concerned for those souls living in remote areas
out of reach of modern communications which could reach them with the glad
message of salvation in Christ.
How true is the scripture: The full
stomach loathes a honeycomb!
Multitudes fed on lies and living only for selfish pleasures make
sport of My Son and even belittle the unspeakable gift He has offered
those unworthy wretches. Jesusí words: Ye must be born again have
been lampooned over and over again by fools of the basest sort, and I am
steaming with wrath over their irreverence toward My Son.
This perverse, jaded generation insists on signs
and wonders to prove My existence. It is not enough that I provide
daily for them to sustain their lives, and have left My Church in the
earth for nearly 2000 years to restrain its darkness with My Love.
Oh no, My goodness and forbearance are taken for granted by this
I am enraged by the way My precious Gift is being
hurled back into the faces of My servants by wicked sinners. Over
and over they say: "Religion in general I can tolerate, so long as its
adherents keep their beliefs to themselves and donít try to convert me."
Secular society will tolerate every vain philosophy and false
religion invented by sinful man, but can still be openly hostile toward
the true Gospel of Christ.
Those hard-boiled cynics will soon get their
wish. True Christians will be whisked out of this world and wonít be
around to speak to them of Christ ever again. Never again will
Christ-rejectors overhear songs of praise softly hummed by zealous
Christians in their workplaces. Free of the restraining influence of
the Holy Spirit, earthís very atmosphere will become fouled by blasphemies
uttered even by the most reserved individuals.
It is human nature not to notice or
appreciate the light until it suddenly goes out. Even as the rebellious
Land of Egypt was filled with dense darkness, spiritual darkness will
permeate this entire globe. Some sinners who now revel in subtler
darkness will then become so sick of the gross darkness of the
Tribulation that they will cry unto Me for mercy at long last, and I will
hear them and save their souls from death.
Just Being Here is a Sacrifice for Believers
Luke 21:36; Romans 13:11; Philippians1:21-24; 2:15-16;
Millions of saints have spent their earthly lives in
illness, disability, persecution and poverty, while still reaching lost
souls for Christ even in their weakness. I did not leave them in this
world because they found it so pleasurable to be here, absent from the One
they love above all else. No, it was for the benefit of lost sinners
that they had to endure the wearisome trials of living day to day on
earth. I could just as easily have taken every single saint home to
heaven after saving their souls, far from the moral decay and hardships of
this present evil world. But I chose to share My dearest treasures, and
delay the day of My own Sonís wedding for the sake of those yet
unconverted. But Christ will not be without His purchased possession the
Church much longer. Nor should His saints be denied their eternal
inheritance as sons and daughters of God, reserved for the time they shall
receive their just rewards and crowns for faithful service rendered in
such a world as this. My Son has deferred the day of His own supreme
happiness in order to win as many lost sinners as possible before the
Rapture, and My people have had to endure a long period of waiting for Him
to come in power and Glory. In this respect, the first have come
last, and the last have come first. Just by having to endure life
in this ungodly, hazardous world all believers have shared in My
sufferings for the sake of sinners yet unconverted. But it is very
nearly time for the consummation of the Blessed Hope of the Saints. It
cannot be that only heaven will ever be a haven for righteousness!
My saints are often accused of having an escapist
attitude, but My Word exhorts you to pray always, that you might be
counted as worthy to escape all those terrible judgments which are coming
on this sinful earth! The time of your salvation is much nearer than
when you first believed. This verse was penned by an apostle who
already possessed salvation from sin, to fellow believers who were
likewise saved. Even in those days they were patiently awaiting
their redemption from an unbelieving earth. This earth, blessed by
Me in the beginning as being Ďvery goodí has fallen into gross iniquity
akin to the days of Noah and Sodom and My people will shortly be
delivered from having to be in it.
Even that will contribute toward the salvation of
unbelievers, believe it or not! Ironically, it has now reached the point
where I must remove My Church from this earth before multitudes will be
jolted out of their comatose indifference toward Me. In order to spare a
vast number of stubborn souls eternal death in hell, I must permit them to
endure the lesser anguish of the Great Tribulation.
There are saints living today who will be
responsible for the conversion of thousands because of the enduring
testimony they left behind. They will, through My marvellous grace,
win far more souls after their departure than they will have won
during their physical presence in the earth! Their very absence will
vindicate their words of warning, now dismissed as silly nonsense by those
who persist in being skeptical toward the Word of God.
Unless I act quickly to redeem My own out of this world,
untold millions of apathetic, irreverent souls will continue to mock My
warnings and perish forever!
The Most Horrible Here$y of All
Proverbs 22:16; Matt. 12:31-32; Acts 8:18-24
Unspeakably terrible is the newest blasphemy
being peddled today: "The more liberally you sow seed (money) into
the Kingdom of God the more liberally God will pour out His Holy Spirit
upon your life!"
A blasphemy spawned by the devil, himself, the
father of lies! The old adage "You only get what you pay for" is
being used to pry extra cash out of gullible saints who rush
the stage to enrich a preacher who laughs all the way to the bank.
Well, money cannot buy the benefits of Calvary,
or My dear Spirit! What crass presumption and blasphemy! The
sins of these greedy sharks far exceed even the one committed by Simon
Magus, the magician who dared to attempt to purchase the power to
impart the Holy Ghost to people.
I warned in My Word that whoever gives money to
the rich is doing Me no favor, and it would lead to his ruin. How
much more grievous an offense is it for a preacher to stand on a stage and
rephrase his true intention: selling salvation and daring to teach
people that I dispense My Holy Spirit to seeking believers according to
their ability to pay!, inferring that I turn off the tap of My anointing
when you leave your spiritual utility bill unpaid!
How crass! How stupid! How devilish!
My Spirit is not gasoline in a pump, that self-appointed vendors can
dispense to those who can cough up the cash!
Multitudes, including this writer, have, at
some point in their lives paid a terrible price for being quick to trust
charlatans. Millions are bilked into giving money to
rich religious quacks who go about hawking My favors. People are led
to think their sacrificial donation obligates Me to dispense earthly
blessings like a vending machine! But my grace is not to be toyed
I especially grieve for those who have fallen for
this latest heresy, the worst ever! I see multitudes of heartbroken
people who paid a high price for buying the lie of those trying to sell My
precious Spirit! And those who suffer only earthly consequences are
far more fortunate than the deceivers who peddled that damnable lie
Ministers who peddle My anointing are in
terrible, terrible danger of damnation. Simon Peter told Simon
Magus, "Pray if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you."
Simon Peter said this in fear and trembling, for he wasnít even sure
if it could be forgiven! And this magician didnít go nearly
so far as these modern heretics are going, brazenly and boldly leading the
gullible to the Pit of Destruction along with themselves!
I see more than one of these fellows weeping and
languishing in front of church altars, begging Me to take them back, once
the Rapture has caught up all whose hearts are set on eternal riches which
How awful will be their doom!
Many will Be Orphaned
A certain 16-year-old girl, Tara, living in the
city of Philadelphia, will linger for hours at a church altar, clinging to
it as if she is terrified to leave it. She will have deliberately
delayed her own conversion, so as to conform to her peer group and not
suffer ridicule and rejection at school. This girl will have
promised herself sheíd "take care of this religion business" in one more
year, after her graduation. She will cling to the brass altar rail,
twisting and writhing as she kneels on the carpet. Tears will wet
her knuckles as she sobs and pleads with Me to take her to heaven.
"O Lord, please take me too," she will repeat
hundreds of times. "Please give me another chance. O God, Iím
so sorry. Iím so scared. I must be in a nightmare! Mom and Dad are
gone, my little sister and baby brother are gone and Iím all alone.
I donít want to die. Please, God."
Arms uplifted in hopes that I will also take her,
she will remain kneeling, crying and praying till her throat is parched
and she is exhausted. An older woman kneeling beside her, Rosalie by
name, will befriend this young girl orphaned by the Rapture. She
will take her in her arms, and promise to look after her and share her
food with her, although she will convince Tara that she must remain
behind to endure to the end of the Tribulation Period. With forlorn
resignation in their hearts, the pair will finally rise from their knees
with bowed heads and, arm-in-arm, leave the sanctuary to face the
consequences of their previous rejection of My Son.
Those consequences will not be punishment for
their previous sin, for all who repent will have been forgiven and
justified by My grace. The consequences will come from satan and
hardened sinners, not from My Hand, and will involve persecution and
privations in that dark, gloomy world to come. All who are left behind to
face the Tribulation will find mere existence in this world much more of a
challenge than they do now, it's going to be so horrible. All the devil's
pent-up meanness which was partly restrained throughout the Church Age
will be unleashed by then and it will not be easy for believers who
receive Christ after the Rapture of the Church. Tribulation believers will
have to look unto Me for every single scrap of sustenance. But even in the
wasted wilderness of the Tribulation world to come, converts to Christ
will find tokens everywhere of My care and concern for them; whisperings
of My love in their heart and reminders great and small that I love them.
And My assurances that even if they must suffer martyrdom for My sake, as
most certainly will, My love and faithfulness toward them stands steadfast
The Tribulation Will Bring Bondage
There will be a great revival of souls coming to Christ in that dark day.
But there shall also be a revival of slavery, spiritual as well as
physical. Civil liberties will be greatly suspended, as panicky
officials try to stamp out the religious fervor kindled by the Rapture.
Gradually the populace will become more accustomed to everpresent
surveillance systems. They will resign themselves to and the
loss of more of their liberties and freedom to move about. Fearful
of terrorism and rampant crime, they will even tolerate
totalitarian rule for the sake of guaranteed security. Individual
freedoms will become a thing of the past, sacrificed "for the greater good
of society". Peopleís minds will be channelled by satanic manipulators
into a "collective consciousness" philosophy of life.
Times will get really hard. A few rich
sinners will hoard all the wealth of this world. They will provide what
little employment there is during that darkened era. Individuals of
conscience will refuse to submit to a politico-economic system controlled
by satan. The vast majority of Bible-believing saints will die for their
allegiance to the true Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. I will have
to supernaturally provide food for My Chosen.
Cash will become obsolete, and abundance a
dim memory. In America and other Western democracies, many
figure-obsessed vain women who had starved down to skeletal thinness for
the sake of fashion will die because their poor abused bodies will be
unable to endure the coming world-wide famine. Those who once
chose not to eat in time of abundance will, by then, be unable
to eat. Well-fed people will feel the terrible toll taken on their own
health by the scarcities of a darkened world at war with each other and
The middle class will become poor, and the poor will become
utterly destitute, even homeless.Some, people, the poorest of the poor,
will become so impoverished they will literally sell themselves into
slavery in order to eat and survive. At first, it wonít be called
slavery at all, because satan is a master of subtlety. The practice
will be peddled as a benign social experiment whereby an individual
barters his talents or labor in exchange for food, shelter, and other
necessities, on a long-term contractual basis. It will be justified
on the grounds that "desperate problems call for desperate measures".The
system will be known as "patronage". The new class of bonded
laborers it spawns will seemingly be free to run off if they wish.
No visible bars or fences will confine them.
But their freedom will be only an illusion.
Any person who wants to benefit in any way from the new social welfare
system will have to receive a coded ID chip implanted under his or her
skin. Satan will have paved the way for this Mark of the Beast through
sowing seeds of fear in a crime-ridden society. Many people,
rich and poor, slave and free, will gladly exchange their liberty and
privacy for the so-called security offered by this computer chip, so they
can be electronically traced in any emergency. Surveillance
satellites will be able to pinpoint the precise location of any fugitive
slave marked in this way. Swift punishment will fall upon escapees who
renege on their contracts with their overlords.
Horrible wars will produce even more slaves,
taken captive from war-torn areas. They will either submit to
evil and surrender their souls, or die.
Satan never grants favors to his captives without
first tying a millstone of doom around their necks.
Repentance, Eroded Riches, and Revised Values
A heart-broken national leader of great eminence,
whose identity I reserve for Myself, will appear on national television
and tearfully repent of the bad example he set for his nation and the
world. He will lament that he kowtowed to his spin-doctors and wove
a web of deceit for such a long time. He will bewail the day he
indebted himself to the wealthy movers and shakers who put him in power.
He will then know there is a terrible price to pay for bending the knee to
Baal, and selling godly principles for power. He will urge his
viewers to observe a day of repentance and prayer, but in vain. Most
people will laugh at him.
His troubles will begin in earnest when
unbelieving comedians lampoon his belated efforts to make things
right with Me and with his nation. Newspaper reporters will have a field
day, gloating over the humiliation of this contrite man. Lurid
caricatures of him will be emblazoned on newspaper editorial pages.
He will never have known such distress in his entire life.
The wealthy, who have wallowed in luxuries of the
flesh, will stand helplessly by as the value of their ill-gotten wealth
plunges to zero. Unaccustomed to hardship, they and their families
will grow hysterical. Many will commit suicide rather than endure the
"disgrace" of joining the ranks of the struggling poor.
In that day there shall be unity and charity
among believers. They will all band together for support as
outcasts of society, and racial and class barriers among believers will
vanish. They will be confronted with a common foe_the Antichrist of
the European Union, who will be energized and indwelt by the Prince of
Darkness. Those who fail his test of allegiance by refusing to have
his microchip I.D. implanted in their hand or forehead will be branded as
traitors and killed if caught.
There will be no lukewarm, fence-straddling
believers then. No petty divisions over trivial things will mar
their secret prayer meetings. They will petition Me for food to
sustain them and for strength to endure the Tribulation, not for a brand
new stereo system or TV.
Many will face imprisonment, torture, or even
martyrdom for My sake. These saints shall reign with Me in My
Kingdom. Their surviving brethren shall enter My Kingdom as mortals
to repopulate a war-weary, ruined planet which I shall restore to its
former pristine beauty.
Blessed is he who endures to the end, and is not
ashamed to own Me as Lord in the midst of the heathen. Blessed is he
who renounces the things of darkness, and forsakes all for My Kingdom. He
shall be clothed in garments of white and rewarded with a victorís crown.
The Coming Earthquake
Isaiah 13: 11-13; Haggai 2:6; Joel 3:3; Revelation
16:18; and 18:5
My indignation is kindled against that stronghold
of the spirit of Sodom, that exporter of sexual perversion and violence.
You have peddled your filthy wares to all nations of the earth who have
the means to purchase them. You care not that you are corrupting the
minds and morals of vulnerable young people, and gratifying the perverted
lusts of hardened sinners who mock My Way of Holiness. Your bloody,
dirty money shall perish with you!
Through your influence, you have filled the land
with bloodshed and violence. You have taught young men that guns give
power, and life is cheap. You have taught women and girls to strip
off their clothes to incite lust in men and boys. You
have taught them to transform their precious bodies into temples of
fornication. You have sunk to the darkest depths of perversion in filming
make-believe murders and sex. You have greatly accelerated the
moral decay of your land by teaching impressionable souls that
self-gratification is the ultimate goal of a fulfilled life.
Woe, woe, woe to that stronghold of filthy
fantasies, that city which traffics in all the vices of hell! Were it not
for the presence of a few righteous souls in your midst, the ground
beneath you would have been ripped asunder long before now.
But soon I shall take My people up to Myself, where they shall be
untroubled by the terrible judgments which are coming upon the earth.
Once the Spirit of Christ resident in My Church has been removed, saith
the Lord, I shall unchain all the restraints in the underlying rock
strata, and a great churning shall begin to rip the very bowels of the
earth, welling upward and intensifying in force until the very coastline
is torn apart and the waves of the sea have swallowed up that stronghold
Those who now choose to laugh and disregard My warnings
shall perish even as the men of Sodom perished, and be doomed to
destruction like the wicked who scoffed at the preaching of Noah. If
I did not spare to send judgment upon them, neither can I justly spare
this wicked generation.
Woe Unto Sodomís Sister
Nahum 1:5-8; II Peter 2:4-6
Another wicked coastal city will lose
its hedge of protection once all true believers in Christ are evacuated to
heaven in the Rapture. Especially strong earthquake shocks will strike a
certain licentious city, ironically named after a holy man who renounced
all the pleasures of this world to serve Me.This city shall be torn in two
by the earthquake. Half of it will slide into the sea, the other
half will become a flooded disaster area unfit for human habitation.
The severity of this judgment will be triggered in part by the
reverberations of nuclear warfare waged by wicked nations at enmity with
The West Coast of the U.S.A., where My mighty revival
of the Spirit began, shall receive a double portion of My wrath
during the final days of the Great Tribulation. Why? Because
much more is required of those who receive greater enlightenment about the
Lord Jesus Christ and yet brazenly reject Him in favor of wickedness!
Repent, every sinner who reads this warning and
can see the handwriting on the wall. Those who reject the cautions
of My Word against ungodliness and spurn My salvation will not be
spared. For with a flood I will overturn the wicked.
How Long, O Lord?
I Cor. 5: 6-7; 10:17; Hebrews 10:39
In the secret councils of heaven I once asked My
Father: "How long, O Father, Great Eternal Majesty, King of heaven
and Lord of every created realm, how long before we deliver our people
from having to sojourn in Egypt?
And He saith unto Me: "Not long, My
precious Son, not long."
Now I ask Him: "How long, O Majesty of
tender mercies, must My people dwell in Sodom?"
And He saith unto Me: "Until the very last
grain of the True Loaf, My Church, is gathered into My garner and Mine
elect have all been hidden in Christ Jesus, their True Ark."
Behold how few grains I see trickling into
the palm of My Hand after so great a harvest. How very few persevere
with Me, and how great a multitude falls in love with Sodom and turns back
Not long, My people, not long, for why should I
allow the precious grain in My garner be spoiled by devouring rats and
their droppings of sin? Shall I not, rather, remove you all to a
place where you can remain pure in heart and no longer be tainted from
having to breathe the corrupt smoke of a wicked Sodom which is appointed
to everlasting burnings?
My Blessing Shall Be Lifted
Leviticus 26:17-19; Psalms 9:17; Proverbs 14:34; Ezekiel
The Queen of the Nations has prided herself
on being My particular favorite; yet she shall be greatly humbled beneath
My Hand in that day. I blessed her even to the extent of making her the
breadbasket of the earth, an exporter of food to hungry nations. Over many
generations I have sent out missionaries from this land to reach
other corners of the globe with the Gospel of Salvation, the Bread of
It grieves Me to hear reports from My angels that
some who profess to be righteous are forsaking the Way of Holiness,
dismissing it as being old-fashioned and irrelevant to this modern age.
I have heard that sin is being laughed at, instead of being a source of
sorrow. No longer are the rulers of this land expected to show
restraint in their personal behavior, and they are not held accountable
for the example they set for the rest of the nation.
I receive all too little gratitude for the choice
blessings I have bestowed upon this fat, overfed land. I am either
misrepresented by liberal theologians, or altogether dismissed as a
figment of the imagination or an outdated myth. Many are
apostasizing from faith in the unadulterated Word of God. Multitudes
are turning to nature religions, rendering devotion to the creature rather
than to the Creator.
When this nation was founded, desperately fearful
and hungry people called upon the God of the Bible to deliver them from
starvation, and to protect themselves from the dangers of life in the
wilderness. I heard their cry. I even allowed their nation to
prosper as no other nation before them had ever done.
Even as the people of Sodom were sated with their
luxury foods and comfortable lives, so the sinners of this land have
decided they donít need Me anymore. They want an indulgent god who
makes no inconvenient demands on their lives, one Who doesnít care if they
keep their sin. The Antichrist will gladly oblige them.
At that time, all My blessings on this land will
be gone. What was Mine to give is also Mine to take away. In
this present Age of Grace, I send My rains upon both the just and the
unjust. But once My Church is gone, those who have rejected the
knowledge of God will also forfeit Godís blessings. The heavens will
become as brass, and the earth will cease to yield her abundance.
Weather patterns will become ever more erratic. Grain reserves will be
utterly depleted. Starvation will be endemic. Heavy hailstones will
destroy the scanty crops, and cattle will die in the fields. Forest
fires will consume drought-stricken areas. Hurricanes, tornadoes and
floods will sweep away businesses and homes. Earthquakes, fires and
mud slides will devastate coastal areas.
Let those who are at ease in Zion awaken
from slumber and seek My face with all diligence. Ask Me for the
power to walk in the victory of My Spirit and to resist the wiles of this
evil world. It is like a harlot beckoning men to their eternal
perdition; outwardly gaudy and exciting, but full of rottenness within.
Expect My Coming Soon
I Corinthians 1:7b; Philippians 3:20; Titus 2:13; Hebrews
I am coming for those who are looking for me to
come; those who hold fast to My Truth and believe all My promises
are yea and amen in Christ.
The world certainly isnít looking for Me.
The world is actually afraid I will come to put an end to its
immoral party. Each year which passes that I donít return, scoffers
ridicule the doctrine of My Return ever more. But the day will
indeed come when their laughter will turn to shock, then fright.
Such sinners will know the same kind of fear known by Adam and Eve, who
discovered they were naked in My Presence. A sinner or backslider is
spiritually naked, and wants only to hide from Me, the only One Who can
deliver them from the terrible wrath to come.
Who I WONíT Take
(Given to Me in a Dream)
I donít want to take up anyone who is unkind,
ungentle, and unloving in the Rapture. Such a person would be unfit
to dwell in My Holy Presence. Those of a snobbish spirit would
ostracise those who are humble in spirit. Hypocrites would feel out
of place in the heavenly sphere where I am taking My Bride the Church.
Those who refuse to learn the lessons of My Love
in this life shall be left behind to learn them during the Tribulation,
when the fires of adversity shall try the hearts of many to see if they
are capable of true repentance. The fire will burn away the fruits of the
flesh nature, which are fit only for destruction. No one can go on to
perfection if he refuses to partake of My divine nature.
My Spirit weeps over the lack of love manifested
through My Body on earth. And when He weeps I certainly hear Him,
and will take appropriate action.
The greatest tragedy of all: The Fruits of
My Spirit (manifestations of Christ in you) are abundantly
available to My Church. But in some places My Holy Spirit is quenched and
His graces are stifled by worldly saints who deliberately ignore His
tender pleas to let Christ live His Life through them.
The Devilís Disciples
I Corinthians 16:22
On that dreadful day when the wicked dead shall be raised to receive the
fearful reward of their deeds, some will be sentenced to a far worse hell
than others, because their degree of guilt is much greater.
Many who carried out persecutions against
believers did so out of ignorance, as in the case of the Apostle Paul.
He honestly thought he was doing Me a favor by persecuting Christians. I
was able to extend mercy to him when, by My grace, I gave him that
miraculous revelation of Myself on the Damascus Road. I said from the
Cross: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."
But very many did know what they were
doing! The very ones who put My saints to death in the most fiendish ways
willingly gave themselves over to satanís control, even though they were
totally convinced that what the Christians had was real. They knew
that no one could have faced torture or violent death so joyfully apart
from My divine grace. Bloodthirsty spectators in Roman arenas were used to
seeing prisoners dragged screaming, crying, or fainting into
bare-handed combat with ferocious beasts. Sometimes the spectators would
grant a reprieve to wounded combatants who had fought bravely. But
Christians were widely detested, and were far more likely to get a
"thumbs down" signal.
No quarter was given these brave men,
women and children by the cowardly beasts who thirsted for innocent blood.
Many would go home from the bloodbath grumbling that the horrible
sufferings visited upon the Christian martyrs had not robbed them of
their last shred of dignity.
It actually embittered those vicious murderers to consider
that that instead of grovelling for mercy, the brave Christians
defended their faith to the end and comported themselves with regal
dignity, preferring to die a gruesome death rather than recant their holy
faith in Christ.
So many of those heathens marvelled at the
composure with which My children faced certain death from ravenous beasts
eager to tear them to shreds. Especially miraculous was the ability and
willingness of My children to forgive their tormentors. More than a
few heathens were moved to tears by this, while the most hardened of them
continued mocking. Ofttimes hymns were sung, and the saints would look up
into the sky, joyfully anticipating the moment I would welcome them home
to My embrace. Never before had braver people been thrust into any
Some spectators actually were so greatly impacted
by those scenes of triumph that they never forgot what theyíd seen, and
later became Christians themselves. It dawned upon many
that the Christians saw something wonderful beyond this present
wicked world, a King and a Kingdom worth dying for.
Conversions (some in secret) would follow every one of these terrible
martyrdoms in the arena.
But many more only hardened their hearts in
wicked unbelief. Not because they could not see the Truth, but
because they would not see it! Their loyalty to the gods of Rome
(including their own evil emperor) prevented them from entering into life
The most wicked of the heathen
would leave the arena snorting in contempt, not so much toward the
dead Christians as toward the Living God who had welcomed these precious
ones home. They would laugh like hyenas at a God they mocked as being
unable or unwilling to defend the lives and honor of His own followers.
They would go about their business, smug in the delusion that no
retribution would ever be visited upon them for their blasphemy and
The wicked would even begrudge the
martyrs the release from suffering afforded them by death. It rankled them
that no further suffering could be inflicted on the martyrís bodies. Stung
by the victorious way they had met death, the crowd would insist on
desecrating the remains of the righteous, so as to prevent Me from
resurrecting them. Thus, they were fighting against Almighty God,
not against people.
First the mutilated bodies of the saints would be
thrown to scavenging dogs, then what was left over was burned. The
remaining ashes would be scooped up and thrown into the River Tiber, which
fell under a curse because it is polluted with the blood of the innocent.
The mere passage of time could no more avail to cleanse its waters
than Pilateís wash basin could cleanse his hands of the blood of Christ.
On the banks of that cursed river the Name of Christ
was mocked. As they contemptuously dumped the ashes of their murdered
victims into its waters the Romans would praise their heathen gods. They
exulted over their destruction of the martyrsí remains, saying:
"Now letís see if
your feeble God can piece you back together and resurrect you!"
How dense the
mind of a sinner is, and how those vile heathens underestimated Me!
I certainly have the power to restore and raise the bodies of those who
were so cruelly butchered by wicked men. How great will be the
terror of those condemned souls when I reunite them with their own corrupt
bodies just long enough for them to stand before Me and receive a just
sentence for rejecting the mercy of the loving Christ Who would have
redeemed them. How they will mourn and weep to see their victims,
whom they had despised as the scum of the earth, raised to eternal glory
and wellness, crowned as princes and princesses to rule with Me eternally.
Justice Shall At Last Be Done
Psalms 145:20; Isaiah 11:4b; 63: 1-6; Nahum 1:1-5;
Matthew 18:7-10; Revelation 20: 11-15; 21: 8
What a travesty the "justice" of earthly courts
is! I have seen relatives of cruelly murdered people weeping to see
killers let off scot-free on some trivial technicality, or receiving a
slap-on-the-wrist sentence. I am enraged by the smirks of guilty people
who walk free, relishing the helpless anguish on the faces of people
they have bereaved.
Those unrepentant sinners go back to living
the way they did before their release. They do not pause to consider
that there is a Day of Reckoning coming for the unrighteous, in which I
shall judge them on the basis of their works. Their evil deeds
shall testify against them that they are worthy of eternal damnation
in the Lake of Fire.
Guilty people given reprieves by lenient judges ought to
acknowledge that their second chance at life was unmerited, and surrender
that life to Me. But instead of humbling themselves at the Foot of the
Cross, many of them brazenly boast to their like-minded friends of
how they beat the rap, and thereís nothing the angry friends and relatives
of their victims can do about it.
What do I think of child molesters, especially
unrepentant ones who are elated because they expect to get away with
it? I am enraged. Those who harm little souls like this are
exposing themselves to the severest sentence I can mete out--a place in
the lowest hell. Better it would be if such a one had never been
born than to have deliberately set out to rob a tiny child of his or her
innocence! Such wicked monsters will be among those who race to the
rocks seeking a refuge from the Brightness of My glorious Coming.
The son of God is about to return to Earth
to judge all humanity in righteousness. When He returns as the
Avenging Judge of wicked men and women, their laughter shall be
Oppressed Peoples Given Justice At Last
Joshua 9:15 and II Samuel 21:1-6; Acts 10:34-35; 17:26;
Romans 1:31-32; II Tim. 3:3; Rev. 20:11-15
I am no respecter of races. I judge each
individual on his own merits, even when specific types of
wrongdoing seem to be more endemic among one ethnic group than another.
My heart broke to see the long line of Native
Americans marched thousands of miles across America by agents of a
treaty-breaking government. Indeed it was a death march. Invisible to
those poor souls, I marched with them through the rain, the ice and the
snow, through inhospitable woods and swampy marshes. They were
driven on like beasts, their shoes reduced to tatters, their feet soaking
wet and freezing in winter. When their poor babes died of hunger,
thirst and exposure I gathered them in My arms and carried them home.
One of My dearest daughters gave up her own
blanket to save the life of a little child. When she died of
pneumonia she was given a heroineís welcome into heaven, attended by
rejoicing angels. I succored tribal elders as they lay dying and calling
upon their Maker for mercy. I reassured them that wicked men who cruelly
treated them had nothing at all to do with Me and were sinning against Me
also. Despite the pride their white oppressors took in being
"the worldís best Christians" by virtue of their color. Despite
their treachery they fancied themselves My chosen race and the
crown of My creation.
King Saul was also a treaty breaker. He broke an
ancient treaty made with the Gibeonites. Though this treaty
guaranteed the Gibeonites peace with Israel and a right to live safely
among them, Saul massacred some of them in cold blood, just because he was
in an irascible mood and wanted to prove to his subjects he was one tough
dude who believed "the only good Gibeonite is a dead Gibeonite". Severe
retribution came upon him and his family.
Because sin repeats itself history repeats
itself. Remember Custer.
Cruel oppressors accused every Native
American of being a wild savage. But how much guiltier do you think I hold
the uniformed savages who sneaked up on defenseless women and children
while their men were away hunting, then murdered them in the name of
"Christian" civilization? Those racist soldiers might be dead now, but now
even death will shield them from My just judgment. They might be dead now,
but now even death will shield those cowards from My just judgment.
Bloodthirsty treaty violators shall rise in the Great White Throne
Judgment of the damned to answer for what they did. It is then they
shall see that I am no respector of races.
I cradled many a dying black slave in My arms and
took them to that fair Land theyíd spent their lifetimes singing
about while toiling in the fields. A Promised Land free of
Pharaoh oppressors; a Paradise where theyíd forget their sorrows and
at long last enter fully into the dignity belonging to a free child of the
Most High God.
I even walked with some of their
descendants on the Civil Rights marches of the 50ís and 60ís. Indeed
it was I who gave them deep-down assurance that victory would come
at long last; partially in this world and completely in the world to come.
I am no respector of color and I suspect more than a few whites will be
surprised to see that Christ is not so pale-skinned and blonde as
they imagined Him to be when they stand before Him face to face.
I will revive the tribes of the Native Americans.
I will resettle them on their ancient lands. I will greatly multiply
their descendants and cause them to flourish in prosperity.
When they dance for joy of heart, their voices shall be lifted up in
praise to their Great Father and Savior Who redeemed them from the
oppression of their chief adversary, satan.
The tortured continent of Africa shall be visited
with grace and mighty deliverance from My hand. I will shrink the
devouring sands of the Sahara desert until the entire continent is turned
into one vast garden Paradise. Tropical vermin and mosquitoes will
vanish, along with all the diseases they spread. No more
unscrupulous capitalists looting Africa of gold and diamonds and depleting
her fertile soil with harmful farming practices. Instead the wealth
of that vast continent shall be used for the benefit of everybody there.
Rains will come in due season. I will make
Africa a major breadbasket of the earth. Food will be so abundant
that agricultural delicacies will be among its many exports. No
inhabitant of Africa who remains true to the Lord Jesus Christ shall ever
lack provision. Africaís ancient enemy the devil will be bound and unable
to torment her peoples ever again.
Satanís Last Stand
Psalms 91:8; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; 2:3-12; Revelation
20:1-3 and 7-10
I speak a word of comfort to all My people who
have grown weary and disheartened by the assaults of satan. Your
adversary is destined to suffer infinitely more and infinitely longer than
you have had to.
This foul being of darkness owes a debt so vast
in magnitude that all the wealth in the universe could never begin to
satisfy it. He was first to contaminate My perfect creation by
introducing sin into it. He has filled the earth with lust, violence,
perversion, sickness, disease, witchcraft, and blasphemies of every sort.
He has enslaved and oppressed the multitudes. He has bound the weary
down with heavy burdens, and robbed them of the joy of living. He has
mocked the sufferings of my saints, and hoped that the scars of their life
traumas would perpetuate in their hearts for all eternity, "like a gift
that keeps on giving". He has shattered the bodies and souls of innocent
little children. He has crushed the poor beneath the heel of the
rich. He has blasphemed all three Persons of the Godhead and incited
sinners to trample My Holy Name in the mud. He murdered My innocent,
Holy Son on the Cross.
When My dear Son appears in glory with all His
resurrected saints, the devil will even try to blast Him out of the
sky by firing nuclear missiles at him. But satan will be unable to
harm My glorified ones upon whom death has no more power.
When My Son returns to rule this renegade planet,
the Antichrist, along with his cohort the False Prophet, will be cast into
a vast lake burning with fire and sulphur. The archangel Michael
will corner satan like a rat and bind him hand and foot with a chain of
light. This act alone will cause agony to this infernal entity who
shrinks from the Light and loves darkness. As he is hurled into the
abyss to await his Final Judgment, a defiant satan will scream curses at
My servant Michael.
For 1000 years satan will languish in the nether
blackness of his foul prison. Unremorseful and steaming with rage,
he will plot against Me, and devise strategy to regain his lost dominion
and reestablish his grip on the souls of mortal men. He will yet
hope to topple Me from My Throne by raising up an army as vast as the sand
of the sea in number.
Throughout the 1000-year Reign of My Son,
righteousness and peace will prevail. Mankind will inhabit a
Paradise Earth, and be free of the fears which now dog his steps in this
present age. Life on earth will be an enjoyable, fulfilling
experience instead of a vale of tears. Wages will be just and prices
will be fair. People will have ample leisure time to enjoy their
families, their homes and their friends. No demons will be present
to tempt My subjects to sin against Me or their neighbors. Occasional
breaches of My Law will result from deliberate, premeditated choice, and
swift punishment will follow. Violent crime will be a thing of the past. I
will prevent ethnic groups from rekindling old hatreds and building
weapons of mass destruction. People will walk the streets unafraid,
even at night. Predatory animals will become docile. The forces of
nature will then be harnessed for mankindís benefit, rather than his
Although mortals will retain vestiges of
their Adamic sin nature until their final glorification, there will be a
much more prevalent hunger to learn My ways than there is now. Today
unbelievers set the trends in society and it is the righteous who are
thought to be strange. In My Kingdom, it will be the sinner who will
feel like the odd one out. If sin is committed during that time, no
one will be able to blame the environment, for I will have restored the
glory of Eden to earth. No one will ever be excessively or unjustly
punished by My perfect Government. My people will receive love, not
oppression, from My co-rulers. Heavy taxation and government
waste will be a thing of the past. All of nature will rejoice in its
liberation from the curse of sin.The earth will enjoy a long-awaited
sabbath of rest from the presence of satan, the wicked one. As he cools
his heels in his holding pen, satan will fume over the fact that I am
reversing his ruination of Planet Earth.
At the conclusion of My Millennial Reign, the
devil will be briefly released to test the loyalty of mortal humans
who have never before had to endure his temptations to sin. He will
go from one end of earth to the other, inciting My subjects to rebel and
establish their own form of government. He did a similar thing ages
ago, when as the exalted cherub Lucifer, he persuaded one-third of My
angels to follow him in rebellion against Me. These angels were
stripped of the Beauty of Holiness and became demons. Lucifer "the
Light Bearer" became satan "the Adversary". Now the devil detests the True
Light, although he often disguises himself as an agent of light to
trick careless saints into doing evil.
When the Final Rebellion occurs, some of My mortal
subjects will cast in their lot with satan and choose to rebel
against My loving Reign. They will rise up against Christ the
Blessed Redeemer, Who will, even then, bear the marks of crucifixion in
His hands and feet. The unholiness and unthankfulness of these
rebels will be made manifest to every created being. All the
universe shall know that manís 6000-year rule was unjust and sinful, but
My 1000-year Reign was loving and righteous, and that putting down that
wicked rebellion was the only just thing I could have done. I am
determined that sin and its consequences shall be eradicated once and for
all. I cannot co-exist with sin, and I will not allow its contagion
to spread to other parts of My universe.
The devil and his vast army will surround
Jerusalem, My capital City, and the camp of the saints round about Me.
But before satan can land his first blow, I will rain down fire upon all
his followers and destroy them all. Even then satan will not have
learned that I am not fazed by large numbers. The Presence of the
Lord, not a huge army, is the secret of victory.
At that moment, satan will be forced to concede
defeat. Utterly incapable of repentance, he will hope to at least
mollify My just wrath against him, and mitigate the severity of his
The devil, who tormented others so viciously, will lose
his bravado when he catches sight of his richly deserved reward. All
other fires, even the heat of the sun, are as ice compared to the
Lake of Fire. It is hot enough to instantly vaporize all matter and
dissolve the very elements of nature. It is a place of excruciating
torment originally prepared for Lucifer and his fallen angels. A
place of perpetual remembrance of sin, a place of regret, and a place
where all hope is forever extinguished in the leaping flames of eternal
Desperate not to spend eternity in the
Ultimate Trash Incinerator, satan will grovel and writhe like the snake
his is, pleading for an alternative sentence, even resorting to tears to
try to soften Me up. He will even have the temerity to appeal
to My merciful nature. When he finally realizes that I cannot be
swayed from My perfect justice, he will plead with Me to immediately
annihilate him out of existence, rather than subject him to never-ending
But he will be reminded that he himself showed no
mercy. He slandered the Spirit of My precious Son Who went about
doing good. He martyred My saints in the most excruciating,
degrading ways. He incited others to reject Me and to commit the
most monstrous wickedness throughout the long centuries. He will be
forced to admit that no mercy is due him, and none shall be extended to
him. He will be consigned to the flames of eternal hell, where his friends
the Antichrist and False Prophet were confined at the beginning of My
If all earthís grains of sand were counted one by
one, then eternity would just barely have begun. No end in sight,
ever, to the torments of the enemy. No end to his well-deserved
The author of all meanness, murder and cruelty,
the original oppressor, blasphemer, and brutal bully. He himself
will be at the receiving end of bullying for all eternity, as those fallen
angels and men he deceived will abuse and curse him for tricking them into
sharing his fate in the Lake of Fire.
Do Not Delay
Matthew 24:36; Acts 26: 27-28; Colossians 1:24; II Peter
Yes, My people, the day and the hour of Christís
appearing to catch away His Bride is known only to Me, the
Father. I cannot even divulge that precious secret to My own Son, or
He would be obligated to share it with you, for all things he received of
Me are revealed to His Body the Church. He calls you His friends,
and it is His good pleasure to share the secrets of His heart with you.
I have My own reasons for keeping this piece of information to Myself, but
the day will come when you will know just why this secrecy was necessary.
Now your understanding is limited; after your glorification it shall be
I will tell you this: If I fail to
intervene quickly, mankind will annihilate himself out of very existence

destruction. I cannot even wait for another generation to be born

Why should I allow My holy ones to dwell forever
in the midst of this perverse, depraved, Christ-rejecting world, where
they are daily vexed by the ungodliness of the wicked? My heart is
burdened for Christian young people who daily endure teasing and
blasphemous comments from their peers. But the day is at hand when the
ungodly laughter of the wicked will turn to tears of dread and
Let not the sinner deceive himself that he can
easily repent any time it is more convenient for him. The apostle
Paul was brought before government officials who found his testimony of My
great salvation fascinating, and even entertaining, for satan had deluded
them into thinking there was no great urgency to become believers. Felix,
Governor of Caesarea, knew that the charges against Paul were
trumped-up by his many enemies, but detained him for two
years, hoping to receive bribe money from his prisoner in return for
releasing him. Moreover, he wanted to please those Jewish leaders
who were hostile to the Faith. As Paul remained in detention, he
sought the governorís conversion.
Paulís preaching on the nature of true
righteousness and the awful reality of the coming judgment of sinners
terrified Felix, but he was too cowardly to become a Christian. The
governor realized he could be stripped of his position, reputation and
wealth, and even end up in chains like Paul. He said, "You can go
back to your cell now. At a more convenient time I will send
for you and hear you again."
Porcius Festus succeeded Felix as Governor.
His advisors persuaded him to keep Paul in prison as a "goodwill" gesture
to the Jewish leaders, although he also was convinced of his
innocence. King Agrippa came to visit Festus. This curious man desired to
hear the preaching of Paul, to find out why it had stirred up such an
uproar that it had landed him in prison. Festus, like Felix, was
deeply moved by the sincerity and power of Paulís persuasions_but he never
did repent. Both men would ask Paul why his God did not set him free
supernaturally. They could not understand why Christians
sometimes suffer for the sake of the Gospel. The reason for such trials is
a divine mystery incomprehensible to unbelievers. Festus, like Felix, was
afraid he would suffer disgrace if he were redeemed. He said, "Almost you
persuade me to become a Christian." Hell is populated by lost souls
who "almost" gave Me their lives.
Let not the pleasure-loving sinner delude himself
that he can wait till he is too old and dissipated to indulge the lusts of
the flesh, that he can toss Me the last few worn-out scraps of a life that
he no longer wants. It doesnít work that way!
Deathbed repentances do occasionally occur, for
I delight in showing mercy to those truly sorry for sin. The
dying thief on the cross received salvation from My Son Who was suffering
beside Him on His own Cross. At his death, this man was taken to be
with Christ in Paradise.
But once My Spirit ceases to contend with a
stubborn, rebellious sinner, he cannot come to repentance, and will perish
in his sins. Hell is filled with the laments of sinners who
postponed their day of salvation until it was no longer within their
grasp. They discovered that their road to hell was paved with good
Yet many play games of delay with Me. The
Light has been abundantly shown to them. But they shut their eyes
and avert their faces from it, because believing on Me entails
responsibility to repent of sin and surrender to My Lordship. The
thrill of the world and its lusts lures sinners to their very destruction,
to an eternity where they shall forever be cut off from the Savior they
wanted no part of in this life.
How long will you wait, sinner? Even until
the time of Tribulation, when gross darkness shall shall enshroud the
earth and every foul demon in the universe shall be cast down to this
planet? If you cannot repent now, while the Light still shines in
your midst, how will you fare when it is removed, and conversion to Me is
likely to result in martyrdom?
No More Mercy
Gen. 6:3a; Psalms 119:89; Isaiah 40:8; Hosea 1:6;
4:1-3; I Peter 4:17; Jude 7; Revelation, Chapters 15 and 16; 22:18-19
My Son taught My people a higher way of life than
merely being fair with others. He taught them to return good for
evil and to bless those who cursed them. For 2000 years My dear
children have lived this way, and much good fruit has come of it.
Sinners have come to the Foot of the Cross for cleansing who otherwise
would never have repented. Why? Because they were so struck by
the supernatural love they found in the lives of believers who patiently
tolerated their wickedness and continued to pray for them.
Increasingly I see sinners taking a different
attitude to the gentleness and forbearance of My people. Today if a
Christian entreats the sinner with patience and gentleness, he often gets
it thrown back in his face with contempt. Gentle believers are
taunted as weak wimps and pushed around even more by satanís puppets.
Things of the Kingdom of God are ridiculed. All three members of the
Godhead have been lampooned by comedians who have no fear of God in them.
The straw that broke the camelís back is this: My Word has
been tampered with! So-called theologians have rewritten parts
of Scripture to suit themselves and to pander to an unbelieving generation
which utterly rejects My standards of holiness. My virgin birth is
edited out as unnecessary and impossible, even for God. Other
passages deemed politically incorrect are erased or altered to mean
Well, Iíve got news for such reprobates who dare desecrate My
Eternal Word. It is settled forever in heaven and cannot be
altered. I shall cut off My detractors off from the face of the
earth for not only rejecting My inspired Holy Word, but hindering others
from entering into Life Eternal. I will visit the earth with
devastating judgments because they have dared to do this, and there
shall be no further delay!
I will cut short the days of My forbearance
with evil. If sinners donít want My gentleness, love and mercy
they shall taste of My just wrath. If I deal sternly with Christians who
begin to take My mercy for granted, then how much more severe shall I be
toward sinners outside My family, who have even less of a right to mercy
than My own children?
I shall shortly smite the earth with the rod of
Judgment, over and over again, as I pour out seven bowls of My fierce
wrath. What I said through the prophet Hosea I say to stiffnecked,
unrepentant souls: "LO-RUHAMAH". No more mercy.
Building on the Edge of the Cliff
A certain woman wanted a house with a seaside
view. She went to a real estate agent who showed her a
luxurious manor situated just a few yards from the edge of a crumbling
cliff. Accompanying them was the former owner of the property.
"Iíve gotta be honest with you, maíam,"
said the realtor, "or I wouldnít be able to sleep soundly, my conscience
would bother me so much. Conservatively speaking, I wouldnít give this
house another five years before the ground beneath it crumbles
and falls into the sea."
"Heís lying," said the owner. "Maíam, you
know these guys are only in the property-selling business for the money.
This man is a fraud. Heíd rather show you another guyís property
where heíd get a bigger commission."
"But what if heís telling the truth?" wondered the
woman. "Which of you should I believe?"
"Me, of course," the owner lied. "I bought
this place from a millionaire who only sold it because he wanted a fancier
place. He had this cliff inspected by geological experts with a long
string of degrees. They told him the cliff was founded on solid
marble and wouldnít wear away for several thousand years."
"So what credentials do you have?"
the woman snapped, looking suspiciously at the realtor.
"The testimony of others who built along this
cliff and lost their homes," he replied.
"Well, where are those people?"
"They moved away, to higher ground; far from the
perilous cliff, and far from the floodplain, where other homes have been
destroyed by torrential rains. I wouldnít steer you wrong, maíam.
Iím a Christian."
"I havenít time for your fear-mongering excuses
for why I shouldnít snap up such a bargain," she said. "Some
Christian you are. Youíre just out to protect your own commission,
so Iíll take this one."
The owner of the property was thrilled, though he
kept a poker face. But the realtor thought: "Lord, I did my best to
warn her, but she wouldnít listen."
Within two years a violent tidal wave crumbled
the cliff. The woman went down with her cheap house.
Many of My dear children have built their spiritual
houses as close to the cliff as they dared, because satan sold them a
cheap lie that they can "have it all" and still have Jesus. Time is
limited before My patience with sinful mankind finally expires. Many
immature saints are like that cliff satan slowly and imperceptibly erodes
away till they finally crumble when he hits them with temptations far too
strong for their eroded spiritual lives. They will not be able to
stand firm in the evil days to come.
This world is an evil, perilous place, like a
harlot seducing My servants to turn from the right and good Path of Life.
Ofttimes saints must battle the devil without the support and prayers of
other saints, in areas where the love of many has frozen to ice. I must
return very soon, or My weaker lambs will fall away from the Faith and
As the Waters Cover the Sea
Isaiah 2:1-4; Micah 4:1-3; Habakkuk 2:14
Let those who are disheartened by the prevailing atmosphere of this world
take heart. There is coming such a profound sea change in society
you will be amazed. Today, My Presence is veiled in invisibility,
for I am seated at the Right Hand of the Father in heaven. My Spirit
is quietly at work in the hearts of all those who will open the door of
their lives to Me, but My eternal Power is downplayed by faithless people
who refuse to believe without seeing. I too am grieved by the way
the rich treasures of My Wisdom are trampled underfoot by the godless
multitudes preoccupied only with the pleasures of this present evil world.
I am angered by their cavalier "take-it-or-leave-it" attitude.
So many of them think: Iíll go have my fun first. God can
wait...if there IS one!
Receive encouragement from My Word, My dear ones. Once this earth
has received a sound thrashing for its evil and I return to reign over it
with My resurrected saints, those mortals who have survived the horrors of
the Tribulation and remained faithful to Me will be admitted as citizens
into My Kingdom. Thereís going to be a total about-face in attitude
on this planet at that time. You who have been lightly esteemed
because you held fast to the Truth of My Word in this evil dispensation of
history will then be honored as fellow-heirs and co-rulers with Christ.
People will literally beg to be taught by you of My ways, to hear the glad
story of My great faithfulness to you, and how I succeeded in taking your
broken life and molding it into the likeness of My dear Son. These
godly mortal believers will also desire to attain to this same blessed
perfection. They will have far fewer hindrances to their spiritual
journey than believers of this present time do, for the tempter and all
his evil cohorts will then be confined to the Bottomless Pit.
Remember these wonderful truths the next time the
devil lies to you, saying youíre a worthless waste of space. Life
might seem to be a grind now, but someday it will be totally glorious.
What Will YOU Leave Behind ?
Proverbs 10:7; Romans 8:6; I Corinthians 3:11-15;
James 1:8; Revelation 21:4
The affections of the double-minded
believer are divided. There are earthly things which he would
be loath to leave behind when I call My Church home. There are those
who are struggling to finance mortgages, and would hate to go before they
had the satisfaction of paying off the very last installment and boasting
of full ownership of their home or car. Others think they might even miss
worldly amusements or the pleasures of the flesh. Some even love
money because of the status it bestows, rather than being glad they have
it so they can use it to further My Kingdom.
The spiritually-minded believer keeps the things
of the world in perspective. Yes, you do need a home, a car, and
money for various uses. Within the state of marriage, you
should find pleasure. But everything in this world which now gives
you enjoyment will pale into insignificance when you are called home to
enter into the very Presence of the Eternal One Who has purchased you with
His own Blood. You could not now comprehend the unspeakable glories of the
world into which I am taking you, the ecstasies which will be yours
throughout eternity, because I have found you faithful. Outgrown
treasures will be left behind, because in heaven you have a more enduring
My faithful ones will leave behind their
testimony of a faith in God which persisted in times of blessing and
trials of every magnitude. The memory of consecrated Christians will
influence many to become believers during the terrible Tribulation Period.
Earnestly desire to leave behind something of eternal value when I call
you to join Me in the air.
So many of My children are experiencing trials of
great severity or long duration. You are tempted to think that they will
go on forever, you have borne them so long. Cast your burdens upon
Me, for I care for you. I have promised that I would not allow you
to be tested beyond your ability to endure. At the Rapture, you will
shake off the remnants of the Old Adamic nature and all the problems it
brought to your life. And if the trial must go on and on ad on, it
will have to go on without you in it. You will leave your troubles
The Rapture is a Release
From My perspective in eternity I see a young
divorcee with two children, tossing fitfully on her bed, fretting that she
must catch up on her rent within two short days. Her lot in life is a
difficult one. Her philandering husband has deserted her.
This former housewife, now thrust out into the world of work, finds
herself between jobs and almost penniless.
She sees no way to get over this rough patch, for
every effort to find a solution has been fruitless. She is
desperately afraid her little family will be split up and her two
daughters taken from her by her more prosperous ex-husband, who is an
unbeliever. This evil man has already threatened to take court
action against her to gain custody of them, because "he can give them
advantages she canít".
She switches on the light and opens her Bible.
Her tear-dimmed eyes fall on Psalms 56:3: What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.
These words fill her heart with hope. I, not some unbeliever,
would decide the fate of her two small daughters.
Her heart aglow with quiet confidence, she rises
out of bed and goes to take a peek at her two children in bed.
To her utter surprise, they are wide awake, looking expectantly at her,
faces all aglow.
"Why arenít you two asleep?" asks their
"Jesus woke us up," said one, "and told us
we must be ready to go home."
"This isnít really our home, is it, Mama?" added
Their motherís face fell. Her
old insecurities tried to reassert themselves. "You mean...not with
"Oh, but it isnít your home either," the older
girl smiled. "Jesus wants you to come home, too!"
"Perhaps He does," her mother smiled in turn.
"Otherwise Jesus would have helped me pay the landlord again, just as He
always has before. It must be that he wants us three to move on to a
better place. Hey, isnít that wonderful now!"
At that moment the woman feels a refreshing sense
of liberation from all the sorrows and burdens sheís had to shoulder ever
since her unfaithful husband left her. She recaptures a childís
ability to rejoice in a golden moment. She sings for very joy
of heart. Her laughing children join in the chorus.
In the midst of all their praise, something wonderful
happens. A glorious vision fills their senses. Earth fades
away and they are swept upward in a caress of Glory Light.
Their song continues in heaven.
Just Five More Minutes
Ephesians 5:16; Colossians 4:5
From My perspective in eternity I see more than
one saint feeling a twinge of regret. Saints who had spent their entire
Christian lives preoccupied with self, wishing Iíd come as quickly as
possible and take them away from this horrible mess of a world. But,
alas, they now realize how much they neglected to warn others of My
In that brief moment, they feel shame and cry:
"Lord, does it have to be now? Just five more minutes, please, so I
can get on the phone and warn my loved ones You are taking Your children
home. Theyíd better get ready too, or theyíll be left behind to suffer
hell on earth. Please, turn back the clock so I can hurry and warn them."
Well, I wonít wait forever. Neither should
The Sinking Ship
A certain rich lady being lowered down into the
sea in a half-full life boat looked up wistfully at the sinking
ocean liner thinking, Why wouldnít they let me take my little treasures
with me? Thereís plenty of room for them. But at least I
didnít bring my husband or brother along on this trip, thank goodness.
Oh, well, weíd better get underway quickly, lest this sinking mammoth of a
vessel create an undertow, and drag all of us in this little boat down to
the bottom with it.
Alas, a lot of born-again Christians share the
same outlook, as they survey a lost and dying world on its way to
cataclysmic judgment and hell.
Pray Them Through
Many believers, even those who are adept at
leading many souls to Christ, will not be able to win all their loved ones
before the catching away of the Church takes place. Salvation is
offered to "whosoever will" come to the Water of Life and drink freely
unto Life Eternal. The other personís free will cannot be overruled
by even the most devout evangelist. But the Christian can continue
to pray for Me to deal with the heart of their unsaved friends or
relatives, and I will convict them of sin. Even then it is up
to them to cease their resistance and respond to My Spiritís drawing of
grace. Unfortunately, many will postpone their day of conversion
until after the Rapture.
One common misconception among believers is that
multitudes will immediately rush to accept Christ after the Rapture
in the face of the irrefutable proof of millions of people disappearing,
but that will not always be the case.
After My sonís resurrection, He was seen alive by
some 500 witnesses, but the Jewish leaders did their worst to discredit
this wondrous miracle. The Veil of the Temple, constructed of very
heavy fabric, was ripped from top to bottom. I did this Myself, much like
youíd rip apart a sheet of paper. Many Old Testament saints rose from the
grave and appeared to the populace. Many signs and wonders were
performed by the apostles But despite all those wonderful confirmations of
Christís reality, lots of hardened skeptics remained. My true
witnesses were persecuted, mocked, and martyred.
I see more than one home where the husband
or wife has lost their spouse and child(ren) to the Rapture. He or
she had been prayed over for years, and treated with loving consideration
and wisdom, rather than being nagged to accept Jesus as Savior. But
instead of being deeply moved by the Rapture, these people bitterly resent
Me for leaving them behind. Accepting Jesus as Savior will take even
greater humility then than it does now. It will involve
acknowledgement that I was righteous and just to leave people behind, and
they must repent for their earlier refusal to surrender to My Lordship.
Pray for all who will be left behind, whether you
are acquainted with many people or few. Taking the Mark of the Beast will
be the hardened sinnerís ultimate act of rebellion against the Love of
Christ, and acceptance of that Mark will be the antithesis of
receiving Christ as Saviour. It will involve pledging loyalty to the
Man of Sin who will be hailed as the worldís "only hope" for restraining
humanity from destroying itself in thermonuclear war. He will deceive
many, and even be embraced by those who are so hardened in bitterness they
will refuse to repent. Some will embrace the Antichrist as an act of
spite, they are so angry at Me for not taking them up to heaven. This will
include many reprobates who once knew Me, but returned to the sinful ways
of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Pray that I will give people the grace to humble
themselves before Me just after the Rapture, and they too will be able to
enter into Life Eternal.
It will be much, much harder then than it is now.
The Hope of Heaven
Isaiah 64:4; John 14:1-3; I Corinthians 2:9;
Titus 2:13; Hebrews 11:10,16
There is no earthly sorrow that heaven cannot
heal. So many of you have endured traumatic experiences, lost loved
ones, faced financial ruin, seen your marriages break up, lost what you
thought were enduring friendships. That person you thought was as
solid as the Rock of Gibraltar let you down, or maybe even deserted you
when you were feeling your very lowest, and needed a friend the most.
Even the Rock of Gibraltar isnít so solid.
It is eroding away, for since the Fall of man, all things incline to
disorder and deterioration. The sinful nature of man is like that.
Apart from My divine grace acting upon them to keep them faithful to the
precepts of divine Love, people are not able to love as I do. How
wonderful will be that glad time when I release My loved ones from that
perverse Adamic nature within them, and Creation itself sings for the joy
of her holy liberation from the Curse of Bondage!
Today you walk down the street, and you see glum
faces worried about a myriad of problems; grimacing motorists reluctantly
dragging themselves to jobs they hate; neglected, unloved teenagers
defacing public property or doing drugs.
After a harrowing day at work, you turn on the TV News
to forget your unpleasant experiences, only to be bombarded by news of
warfare, rising gas prices, tax increases, and ever increasing crime.
All over the world people look for reasons to hate and war against one
another. Age-old conflicts between ethnic groups flare up. Ancient
enmities are rekindled by satan. Wars are raging out of control.
You sigh, "How much longer, Lord? Nothing I
seem to do makes a dimeís worth of difference in this miserable world.
Whenever I witness of Christ to the lost, I only get laughed at. So
whatís the use of it all?"
Oh, My precious one. Never despair of your
usefulness in this world. You have been a light before many.
While so many others discarded My righteous commandments and lived only
for the gratification of their sinful lusts, you strove to keep your home
together and live out My Word in your life. You didnít just speak
your testimony; you joyfully lived it. I thank you for this, for you
could easily have relaxed your standards of Christian living and gone
along with those who wanted to fit in with their worldly friends.
Truly there is a reward for the righteous, and it
is very nearly within your grasp. What a wondrous, Blessed
Hope My people have! I have prepared for them a beautiful City of
Light and Love wherein dwells only righteousness. People who have
lost Christian loved ones to death will be reunited with them in My
You will soon see Christ
face-to-face. You will see the One Who suffered and died to redeem
you from sin and death. And when you do, your joy will be
indescribable. All earthís sorrows will fade away like mist in the
Your eternity will be one of joyous activity,
performed to My Glory. You will ever be learning more and more about
how wonderful I am, discovering more about the beauty of My Love. No
more bad news or unpaid bills to fret over. No more enemies to contend
with ever again.
Privation Will Turn to Plenty
Isaiah 60:19-20, Revelation 21:4-7, 22-23; 22:1-5,17
Nearly all of My children have had times when
they suffered some sort of personal privation. I have here in Heaven
infants who were aborted. Now they are being swaddled in My Love,
cared for by tender-hearted guardians. I, the Good Shepherd, am restoring
these rejected souls, and filling them with the pristine joy of innocent
There are saints who suffered hunger and thirst
during terrible persecutions. Now they drink freely of the River of
Life. They eat the fruits of Paradise and partake of the Heavenly Manna.
There are those who were blind, deaf or crippled during their earthly
sojourns. Now they behold Me in all My Glory, far removed from the
oppressing darkness of this present earth. They listen to the sweet
singing of angel choirs. These saints dance for very joy of heart,
basking forever in the perpetual Light of My Love.
There are those who suffered social deprivation.
Their friends forsook them when they made a commitment to walk in My ways
without compromise. Some of them were humble of appearance or poor,
or too simple-hearted to be accepted by their pretentious peers.
Pious saints have been ridiculed whenever anyone caught them singing
a hymn outside of church, or praying over a restaurant meal. Some
were ostracised for not going to wild parties or bars with their
workmates. Millions even paid the ultimate price for their
In Glory the righteous boldly sing the Psalms of
their Lord, even publicly, on the Streets of Gold. No one is too
inhibited to offer Me praises here. Those who once were rejected for
being "too heavenly-minded" now enjoy the friendship of millions of
other faithful saints and prophets who lived before them.
The saints of heaven enjoy what you might call
luxuries on earth, though everything here reflects a holy
refinement, rather than the sensual glitter of earthly wealth. The
entire City sparkles with jewels and gold. This abundance of visible
treasure is necessary, just as it was necessary for Mary to lavishly pour
expensive perfume upon My head to demonstrate the abundance of her love
toward Me. While on earth, satan had robbed so many of these dear
saints of all their material goods. Persecutors mocked them for being
poor, although their very privations were caused chiefly by
persecution. The glories of heaven serve as a perpetual affirmation
of their worth as sons and daughters of the Great King.
How sweet is the fellowship of the saints in heaven! I
foresee the day when you will joyfully tell other glorified saints of My
intervention in your life when you met with difficult problems too great
for you to handle. You shall tell them of times I delivered you out
of oppressing circumstances and met pressing needs. And they shall answer,
"Truly God is good to the upright in heart, and none who trust in Him
shall be forsaken."
If only My earthly saints were not encumbered by their fallen
flesh nature, they too would more readily love one another in this
A Bright New Day
Micah 4:4; Zechariah 3:10
The day is coming when it will be much easier for
mortal man to love his neighbor, for the entire atmosphere of this world
will be saturated with the influence of the divine nature, which is
perfect Love. This sweet pervasiveness of My Holy Spirit will bring
a gentle tranquility to the expressions of mortal believers. At
present, tension, apprehensiveness and stress sometimes mar the
faces even of devout Christians. That is largely due to living in a
world still under the domination of the devil. My people can grow
weary of the struggle against sin, and they can be wary of people they
donít know, even of each other at times. People are loath to trust
others because of the reign of sin on earth.
The peace and security longed for for so long
will fill the entire earth during My Reign, and the whole planet will be
at rest from fear. Foreigners will no longer be treated with
suspicion, but will be welcomed as guests in the countries they visit.
Warm hospitality and genuine friendliness based on love will be the order
of the day. Many will marvel that life wasnít so wonderful for
Blessed are Ye Poor
Deut. 15:11; 18:1-2; Psalms 11:14; Isaiah 10:33; 29:19;
41:17;65:22; 66:2; Zech. 8:20-23; Matt. 5:3; 26:11; James 2:5; I Peter
Despair and disgust fill the heart of poor people
who work hard for very little, for they are fully aware that vain
sinners in high places are living in luxury at their expense. These
dear ones expend every ounce of their strength toiling at unglamorous,
poorly paid jobs, necessary occupations held up to scorn by the rich and
My poorest children canít afford doctor or dental
care. They even wonder how funeral expenses will be met if they die. They
can barely afford adequate supervision to protect their own children while
theyíre at work, and can barely feed and clothe them adequately.
Rent gobbles up what little they earn. They feel little better off
than the unemployed. They cry out to Me to ease their suffering and
humiliation and make their lives tolerable. Making ends meet is very
difficult, and every single meal is consumed with true thanksgiving.
Take heart. dear ones. It wonít always be
this way for those of humble means. The day will come when I raise
the poor up from this present despicable state of affairs: where
those who toil the hardest are treated as disposable cogs in a rich manís
money-making machine. Throughout My Millennial Reign, the lowly in
heart and the poor in spirit will be considered the most blessed of men,
and especially close to My heart.
Why? Because less affluent people
will be like the Levites in that they know that the Lord God Himself is
their Inheritance. Their eyes will not be upon silver and gold or other
perishable commodities, but upon their eternal treasure laid up in heaven
which never fades away. I will bless whatever these humble people have and
make it last. The gap between the rich and poor will be greatly
narrowed, and the so-called poor will be so happy with My blessings they
wonít detect much difference.
Now poverty is a trial of affliction. But
in the blessed age to come, the faithful "poor" will feel rich indeed.
I will fill every moment of their time on earth with the joy of My
Presence. It is I Who will be the Glory not only within the poor in
spirit, but upon them and all around them. I will empower these
mortal saints to see every need supernaturally provided, and I will use
them to testify of My greatness unto the utter ends of the earth.
There will be temporal blessings too. In that day even
the least affluent mortal saints will have ample opportunity for quality
education and personal enrichment in the things that really matter. Today
My poorest children must forego trips to the Holy Land or religious
conferences in far-off places. But throughout the Millennium I will send
many "poor" people to the ends of the earth to minister My Word or
receive a blessing. Travel will be fast and affordable to all who go in My
Name. Peoplesí lives will be a long adventure of discovery
about My wondrous Love.
People of every economic level must guard against
pride and self-sufficiency. During the Millennium I will humble the
haughty of heart, and those considered poor among men will be called
A Supersaturation of Sin
Isaiah 5:20; Matt. 7:13; II Tim. 3:13
Truly, saith the Lord, iniquity has reached its
supersaturation point in this Christ-rejecting world. I have called
My people to be the salt of the earth so that the spread of sin in society
might be checked. While sin and vice have always existed
throughout human history since the Fall of Adam in the Garden, every
society where the God of Israel was honored had clearly defined moral
standards and a clear idea of what constituted crimes against basic
decency. Today the lines are blurred and people in high places call
evil good and good evil.
Today My consecrated ones are vastly outnumbered by
the evil forces shaping the societies they live in. Carnal professing
Christians have thrown in the towel and given up with an "if you canít
beat Ďem, join Ďem" attitude. Liberal "churches" are daring to
question what My Word has to say about sexual morality, and now they are
using the excuse that perhaps My revelation on such matters is still
evolving and maturing to meet the needs of a world that has grown much
more broad-minded. But I warned that false teachers would push such
damnable heresies on people with itching ears eager to swallow lies
in the Last Days. And I also warned: "Broad is the way to
destruction, and many there are who pursue that path."
Destruction fell upon wicked Sodom when its
iniquity reached its zenith. Double-minded Lot was unable to
prevent the destruction of his city because (1) He had lost his savor and
(2) there were not enough righteous people in Sodom to save it from its
My people cry out to Me in dismay because all
they ever see on TV is sex, sex, sex. And very soon all those sex
worshippers will be crying out praises to Mr. 666. My people worry about
their children being bombarded daily with filthy sights and
sounds as they go out and associate with their peers at school. My
wonderful people have been faithful to be salt in their society, but even
salt of the highest quality canít stem the tide of evil in this world
anymore. Itís like trying to preserve a ton of meat that is already
in an advanced state of decay with a tiny teaspoon of salt.
Get ready to leave, saints. Youíll be
leaving this rotten world very, very soon.
I Come in Glory
Rev. 19:7,9; 22:12
The enemy would deceive many concerning the
certainty of and reality of My coming for My people in the Rapture of the
Church, and he would try to convince you that it won't be any time soon,
so it should be last on your list of priorities. In times past I
stalled the progression of events leading up to that blessed time. I
could have come at earlier points in the last century, but purposefully I
delayed this event of My own wedding in order to give this last generation
further opportunity to repent and come into My Kingdom before it is
everlastingly too late. I stalled the clock for awhile but it's about to
start ticking again for the last time.
I have called My people to sacrifice, when
necessary, even their own personal welfare for the salvation of sinners
but I cannot delay My own wedding forever. Myriads of saints who
served me under the harshest conditions or were faithful even unto
death to defend My sayings, these wonderful people are worthy to receive
the glorious reward I have laid up in store for them in heaven. It would
be unjust for Me to postpone our wedding indefinitely, to move the
goalpost of the Blessed Hope of glorious consummation of the Marriage
Supper of the Lamb; for these my brethren have patiently waited so very
long to be united to Me as My Bride, to rule and to reign with Me
The translation of the living saints to heaven
and the resurrection of the righteous dead to join Me in the air will be
the dividing line between the Church Age and the beginning of the
Tribulation Era. It is then that satan will know his days are truly
numbered, and he has only a short space in which to do the last of his
dirty work before I come again. Those days will be absolutely
horrible for anyone remaining on the earth. But My own beautiful
Bride, My Chosen and Beloved, will be seated with Me beneath the marriage
canopy of the heavens. These precious ones who foresaw the danger
and hid themselves in Christ the Rock of their salvation will closet
themselves in the Bridal Chamber of the Lamb until we all descend back to
earth to begin the restoration of all things which the enemy has ruined on
Be encouraged, My dearly beloved and faithful
ones, greatly cherished of my soul and the apple of My eye. You have
not much longer to await the coming of your glorious Bridegroom to receive
you unto Himself.
Are You Ready to Go?
I the Father say to My dear children: As time
passes I see fewer and fewer reasons to detain My Son from coming to
redeem His people out of this cesspool of a world. I am sickened by
its gross immorality, its arrogant unthankfulness toward Me, and its
disregard of Me altogether. In its present condition, it is no fit
place for My people to reside. What I could not bear Myself, I certainly
donít expect My loved ones to bear. It would be unloving for Me to leave
My redeemed treasures here much longer to be tempted, taunted and tainted
by the world. I admonish My beloved saints: Get
all your spiritual packing done, for your time of departure is much nearer
than you think.
My precious embattled saints who pray long and
hard resisting the world, the flesh and the devil, take heart. Your
combat fatigues will soon be replaced with glorious robes of royalty, and
your battle helmet will be replaced with a crown of gold. Your
combat fatigue will be transformed to everlasting delight in the Glory of
the Lord as you join your Heavenly Bridegroom in the air.
Lost in My Love
I Corinthians 2:9
I see so many of you enjoying yourselves in My
Presence, whether alone in your prayer closet, or fellowshipping with your
fellow saints. Where My Love is present, the fellowship of the
saints is sweet indeed. At such times, you can truly sense that I am
present among you, enjoying Myself too.
Sometimes it is hard to suppress nagging thoughts
which try to intrude upon your worship: Tomorrow is Monday, back to
the same-old-same-old routine; the cranky boss, that stack of work
projects Iíll never get through, all the pressure, the bills, the worries
about the major expenses of the future. I just go round and round in the
same old rut. This is just a break from real life, and Iíve got to
make the most of it.
The good news is that one day youíll come into My
sweet Presence and never have to go back to the same old grind ever again.
Youíll feel unfettered 100%, and it will thereafter be only joy, joy, joy
in the warm sunshine of My Love, with no dark shadows lurking in the
recesses of life ever again. Only the most glorious,
all-encompassing Light imaginable as you and I delight in each otherís
I Long For You
Revelation 19:7-9; 21:2,9; 22:17
I have even expressed My heartfelt desire to MY
Father that My appearing for My beloved Bride the Church be soon.
This earth has been made a blight in My universe by the depravity of
mankind. How can the sweet Spirit resident in My people bear much
longer to remain amid the spirit of Sodom which now saturates this
stronghold of Lucifer? How much longer before I take the reins of
government and remake this earth into a habitation fit for the righteous,
to the praise of My Holy Father?
Let all My loved ones rejoice, for I have
been granted the assurance that your redemption from the earth is
imminent, and there will be no more need for further delay. I am now at
work in the earth gathering the ripened fruits of the harvest into My
garner. After that, the door of the Ark shall close, and judgment
shall begin upon unrepentant mankind. The Wedding Feast is being
prepared for My glorious Bride and for our guests, and the
habitations of the Glory World are being readied to receive the Redeemed.
Music is being practiced in preparation for those glad songs which shall
resound throughout the heavenly places.
Truly when you behold Me face to face, your joy
will be incomprehensibly greater than any you knew on this earth.
Earthly sorrows will fade away like a vapor in the sun, to be forgotten
I long to be united to you, O My espoused Bride,
to behold the perfection of your beauty, and to dwell in the midst of you
FOR THOSE WHO COME TO CHRIST AFTER HE COMES FOR HIS CHURCH
Remember that even in this hour of gross
darkness, I will be a Light unto thee, my dear children. Satan would
consume your hearts with self-reproach because you did not respond to the
Gospel in time to participate in the Rapture of the Church. But you
were saved on the same basis as the Church Age saints, strictly through
faith in the shed Blood of My Son Jesus. He will shortly return to
earth to restore the Paradise environment which was forfeited by Adam and
Eve through transgression.
Most assuredly you have been made clean through
the precious Blood of the Lamb. It would be every bit as wrong for
you to point the finger of condemnation at yourself as it would have been
for Church Age believers to wallow in guilt. You have been forgiven
of all sin and accepted in my family of faith. You are not in the
Bridal Company, but you do have a high place of honor as gleanings of My
Harvest. You are precious treasures saved from the terrible wrath of
judgment which is coming upon this evil world.
You are called to be bright and shining lights,
that you might even reflect the glory of the Spirit of My Holy Son, who
dwells in your hearts by faith. Because I have called you to separate
yourselves from the demon-driven economy of this present world, you shall
have to depend on Me for every necessity of life. But I will be
faithful to you, even as I was faithful to sustain the Children of Israel
in the desolate wilderness. You absolutely must depend on Me for every
single thing. The saints of the Church Age could buy and sell along with
their unconverted neighbors. But when the Mark of the Beast System is
instituted, you will not be able to do this at all. In My eyes
any participation in buying and selling under the auspices of the
Antichrist would amount to betrayal of the One Who redeemed you unto
However desperate your situation, NEVER allow
anyone to insert the Antichristís compulsory microchip ID into your body,
or you will suffer loss of eternal life! Receiving the Mark of the Beast
is an act of betrayal toward Me. It is a defilement which can NEVER be
washed away! It is an irreversible death sentence to every soul who
Remember to be kind to all My people
whom you may encounter, whether converted Gentiles or Jews. Do not quarrel
among yourselves, but be knit together in love for My sake. If you have
food or other necessities on hand, share with the needy among you.
In your distress, pray for the grace to love your brother or sister
as well as yourself and to be unselfish with what you have. Be wise as
serpents, but harmless as doves. To those of you who ask me I will
clearly show you who you are to accept as a fellow believer. I will
also caution you against those who are only wolves in sheepís clothing,
deceivers unworthy of your love and fellowship.
Know dear ones, that My unseen angels of
provision will move in your midst. Even as I opened the eyes
of Hagar the Egyptian woman to find a spring of water in the dry
wilderness, so my angels will lead you to My provisions for your life
necessities. My means of provision will take many different forms, but
will NEVER involve compromise with satanís economic system, which is
doomed to perdition. Ask Me even for healing and strength for your mortal
bodies. I am the Lord Who heals My people.
Some of you will be sacrificed as lambs for My
sake. But fear no trial which you might face. No hardship or
suffering will ever come upon you apart from My grace to endure it.
If you are chosen for martyrdom, you, like Simon Peter, will receive a
joyous, glorious entrance into heaven. You will be welcomed
and blessed by myriads of saints and angels. You shall receive an
incorruptible crown of life eternal. You will be clothed in shining white
garments of pure light, then join in the unutterably beautiful anthems of
the redeemed. When you look upon the lovely face of your Redeemer, you
will forget all the sorrows of earth, even as a woman forgets the pains of
labor once she sees the face of her newborn child.
Others of you will be chosen to enter as mortal
saints into My Kingdom to repopulate a restored earth with generations of
happy, healthy children. They will be the offspring of My blessed
children who kept faith with Me in a dark, faithless world.
He who perseveres to the end will be preserved in
salvation. That one shall be rewarded with a place of honor in My
A Closing Exhortation to the Tribulation Saints
God be with you, my beloved brothers and sisters
in Christ. I am now in heaven, beseeching the Father to grant you
the strength to be faithful, and to fortify your hearts with courage. The
Spirit of the Living God is well able to do this. He is able to keep
you from falling, as you depend solely upon His strength, not your own.

spiritual strength: www.raptureready.com. And my own site as well:
https://kingdomage.tripod.com. download as much edifying
material as you possibly can to save on your own cd roms, hard
drives, or disks. i fully expect freedom of
the press and freedom of speech to be suspended in the aftermath of
the rapture, and internet communication to come under much greater
restriction than ever before.
Better yet, print as much truly spiritual
food off the Net as you can, against that time when you will have to do
without electricity and read by candle or lantern light. Most
importantly, feed your souls on the precious Word of God, the Holy Bible.
Read the Psalms for comfort in time of
tribulation. Pay particular attention to the New Testament, which
emphasizes the teachings of our Redeemer, Christ Jesus.
Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us of the wonderful works Jesus did to show
us the loving nature of God the Father. John, the fourth gospel, focuses
much more on Who Jesus is, and the glory of His divine nature.
Throughout his four New Testament books, Johnís central focus is the
Love of God in Christ Jesus. We all need to lean on the love of God.
I know I did.
Throughout my mortal lifetime, I had my ups and
downs, times when I felt depressed, even times I felt like a total waste
of space. In good times and bad, I depended heavily upon the Love of God
to see me through each day. Even when I was weak and impatient toward
myself and life in general, God was extremely patient with me.
The day came when I was finally able to rise above past hurts and see
myself as Jesus saw me worth enough to give His very life for. I was
filled anew with such love and gratitude toward Him that my final days on
earth were spent in joyful anticipation of His appearing.
I will see some of you sooner than others. But whether you
enter Christís Millennial Reign as a mortal or a resurrected saint, your
future life in His Kingdom will be bright and happy. We shall all be
together again, and most importantly, we shall forever enjoy the Blessed
Presence of the Glory in our midst.
God bless all you dear ones who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity
