The secular new year of 2023 is nearly upon us, and the year of 2022 is nearly behind us. Really, the past few months have felt really, really strange. For one thing, I and my family were sick over the Thanksgiving (in America), and so we celebrated it late. Then, because of sickness the early Christmas activities were missed such as going to Handel’s Messiah and the lighted Christmas parade, and then because of ice and snow we missed all of the week before Christmas events like the Christmas Eve specials at various churches and shopping for last minute gifts. Therefore, Thanksgiving did not feel like Thanksgiving and Christmas did not feel like Christmas.
On top of this there was a heaviness over the season. I thought I was feeling this way simply because I had not experienced all the fun events, but it went deeper. Each time I would shake it off. Each time I would struggle against it and turn up the Christmas music a bit more, and sing a little bit louder. But something was definitely different. It was nearly tangible.
Just after Christmas I and a family member listened to Dana Coverstone’s most recent dream (posted about a week before Christmas) about the canary in the coal mine, and it not only explained the growing darkness, it also explained that we as Christians in that darkness must continue working and worshiping while we work. We must not stop singing. And, we must not attempt to defend Christianity or the Holy Spirit or ourselves. We must not be defensive, but must be active in working and worshiping, for when we do so we will not be discouraged nor distracted nor defeated. This is, in short, the interpretation of the dream.
Then, yesterday I went onto youtube looking for something else when I came across the video below by Adele Grobler of Bold Existence. Adele Grobler and Candace and Michael Foy are the “coaches” and ministers of Bold Existence. They are true Christians, and are Holy Spirit- empowered sisters and brother in the Lord on the other side of the world. They do not appear to be apart of any nefarious group nor are they a cult. Praise the Lord! And they have deeply refreshed me! And oh! How I needed refreshing after a very oppressive week!
Yes, I believe Jesus really shared His heart with Adele through the Holy Spirit, and I pray that whoever it is that is reading this today would also click on the video below to hear Christ’s “right now” message (rhema word) to the Church.
Indeed, it has been a blessing to hear from both Dana Coverstone and Adele Grobler the same exact thing that I have been experiencing and feeling. They truly have confirmed what I have been dreaming and hearing from the Lord.
The darkness is growing. But as it does, we who have been in the secret place, who have pressed in to the Lord, who know Him will be unshaken by what is coming on the earth. And we must continue to worship and shine, for as we do so the darkness will still be perplexed and will be rendered powerless to overcome us! (“Christmas 2022: Choosing to Shine,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/12/23/christmas-2022-choosing-to-shine/).
Indeed, God has made His heart known to mankind, and is about to show forth His great power in the earth. He has given many warnings, allowing time for people to repent. Things are going to happen more quickly now than ever before, “wave upon wave. All this is of My doing, and My shaking, and final attempts to wake mankind up, to wake them up to the hour that is upon them… Will not all these things that I have spoken come to pass? The clock is ticking and is running out; the hourglass is almost empty. My light is almost here…I will continue to shake everything…they will see many tears in days ahead, and you will hear many cries of suffering and pain and anguish on the lips of my people who wake up too late. They will beat their breasts and cry out loud saying, ‘Why didn’t I listen? Why didn’t I hear? He spoke but I was blinded in my own ways. He made His way known to me, but I refused to follow. I wish I could turn back time. I would do things differently if I knew what I know now.”
To these the Lord responds, “I will never turn My back on my people who repent, but I won’t ease the consequences they will need to walk out because of their disobedience. They have made themselves their god. They are so focused on their next meal, their next success, their next holiday, their next entertainment. They put me on a shelf thinking as long as I gave my life to Christ I will be saved, and yet, little do they listen to the rest of my instructions, what it means to be a true disciple and follower of Me.”
Truly those “Christians” who, like Jesus said to Adele, have been looking to their next vacation or meal or fun thing will seriously be affected by the grave darkness that is descending palpably upon the world.
And so dear Christian who is reading today as the year 2022 turns into 2023 and as Christ’s return is upon us and the darkness is becoming so thick that it can be felt, do not be found lukewarm! Do not be found wanting! Do not be found pursuing your own goals, your own pleasures, your own gains, your own wants, your own ways when Jesus calls His Bride home! For truly, who is it that you are serving? Yourself? Are you your own god? Are you your own idol? Is your family your idol? Are your kids? Your spouse? Your job? Your house or your car or your tv shows or movies or vacations or life in general? Do you say you believe in Jesus, but everything else is on the throne of your heart?
Where is your heart? I pray the Holy Spirit convicts you now, today, and that today if you hear His voice you will not harden your heart! For today is the day of salvation (Psalm 95:8; Hebrews 3:15). You must choose THIS day whom you will serve. Everyday you make a choice. Every single day you decided who rules your life — you, another person, or God. If it is not God, then it is time to repent. For real. Today. Right this minute. This very second. Whether or not you go in the rapture of the Bride depends on it! Seriously. We are called to lives of holiness, for without holiness and undiluted, unadulterated faith we will not see the Lord (Hebrews 11:6; 12:14). “28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29For our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12).
“25“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”29Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. 30When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. 31So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. 33Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 34“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Let’s be found watching. Let’s be praying always that we may be counted worthy to escape. Let’s not be found enamored by the things of this world nor be found overwhelmed by all that is happening, but rather, may we be found looking up. May we be found believing Jesus’ words that will come to pass and will NEVER pass away.
“2The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.” (Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 4:14-17)
“2For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. 3The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.” (Isaiah 60:2-3)
This Christmas season wherein we commemorate Jesus as the Light of the world, great darkness still covers the people. And this darkness is certainly growing deeper and darker, even as dark as before the creation of the world when all was without form and void (Genesis 1:1-2). And as the darkness grows, the shadowy beast system is slinking stealthily upon the world stage for the final countdown of time itself. All secret societies are boldly straining to amass enough of a stronghold, to unite the world under a new world order, like the tower of Babel, before God can reveal the rest of His preordained plan. Nearly every nation is right now flexing its muscles, suppressing its people, creating chaos, slowly demolishing their own money, establishing – unbeknownst to most of its patriots – a new set of laws, and enforcing medical tyranny and moral depravity. The distant storm once seen far in the distance is now upon us. Though not everyone understands why the storm is here (rising gas and food prices, immoral transgender agendas, unfair judicial decisions, legislatures that do not represent the people anymore, warnings from well-known economists about the plunging stock market, and the intensifying persecution of Christians in nation after nation including China, North Korea, and even Ukraine where it is the Ukrainian government that is unfairly intimidating Christians under the false accusation that their church takes orders from Russian based organizations), there are those of us who do know why. But whether we understand or not, the darkness is here and growing more palpable.
I have heard from various Christians from different walks of life, that there is a heaviness right now. Depression is hitting harder. Discouragement is stronger. Feeling alone or a failure or dismal is a force to be reckoned with more so now than ever. People don’t want to get up in the morning. Along with everything that is happening on the world stage, Christians are facing very real, insurmountable odds in their own lives. They are battling cancer, recovering from major surgery, dealing with deep grief over the recent loss of a loved one, fighting illness, going home for the holidays to unsaved loved ones or unhealthy situations, unemployed, deep in credit card debt, their one child with whom they are close has moved far away or is moving far away, some can’t go to college because they can’t afford it, others are wondering what their purpose is, and the list could go on indefinitely. All in all, everything seems to powerfully overwhelming.
Not long ago, I was overwhelmed. At first I just went with the feeling, and thought it was warranted. So, I felt a little depressed. I had a right to be. But, something was wrong. And as I attempted to shake it, it grew stronger. But, I just kept praising and worshiping God anyway, and kept the worship music on in my home and car. As I called out to God to clean out the room of my heart and to be the Lord and Master of this throne, I felt a burden lift that had been quite heavy. But, that same night I awoke to a terrifying, demonic dream wherein a muscle-bound entity was wrestling with me. After wrestling it off and feeling weak, I moved to reach out to someone I know for help, but the entity made a surprise attack at that point of my weakness. I awoke with a loud cry.
I am sharing this to let you know that it is not okay to indulge any longer is depression, feeling sorry for oneself, discouragement or any of those downhearted feelings, for they are not just feelings. There is a demonic element to it. Whatever you and I got away with before in the arena of emotion, we are not going to get away with it now. It is time to take authority in Jesus’ name, and it is time to stand in agreement with a brother or sister in Christ in Jesus’ name. This is exactly what I did immediately after that nightmare. I rebuked the demon, and then went to my best friend who stood in agreement with me. And though depression has attempted to return, I have not allowed it. I know now first hand that it is not just an emotion. It is demonic, and not to be tolerated.
Yes, it’s dark out there. Yes, it is easier to just give in to an emotion. Yes, our circumstances are disheartening. But, we as Christians are called to shine anyway; we’re called to rejoice anyway; we’re called to praise anyway; we’re called to bless God and accept good and bad from Him anyway.
Jesus called us, in Matthew 5:14-16, the lights of the world. Not only is He the LIGHT of the world, but He gave us the same title. And we must not let our lights go out. We must not allow the darkness to overcome us when we’ve been made more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We must not give in to the demonic forces when we have authority to trample upon them.
Paul did not allow his beatings and shipwreck and being lost at sea and intense persecution and opposition to keep him from rejoicing always (2 Corinthians 11). For he knew the sufficiency of God’s grace, and that when he was weakest, God’s strength was strongest (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). For though “we are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed…” (2 Corinthians 4) We are not to lose heart for “Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4).
Joseph did not lose heart though his brothers at first conspired to kill him, and then decided to sell him into slavery instead. Joseph did not lose heart when he was falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife and unjustly imprisoned. He knew his God was bigger and would fulfill what He had promised through the dreams He had given. (Genesis 38-50)
Job did not lose heart, and said to his dear, grieving wife that she must not be like one of the foolish women but instead was to accept from the Lord both good and evil (Job 2:10)
And a modern day example is that of my friend Don. For ten years his wife faded away into the darkness of Alzheimer’s at a care center where I was chaplain a number of years. But, unlike so many who only visit a few times and don’t stay long with their loved one, he came daily for around 5 hours at a time. He fed her, watched over her, attended hymn sings and Bible studies with her, and wheeled her down to get her hair done. And one time, I unbeknownst to him, saw Don and his wife dancing – she in her wheelchair and he twirling her around to music in the activity room. It was a sight I will not soon forget and still impacts me today. For that man could have been out on the golf course in denial about everything or could have been depressed or angry with God, but instead, he chose to dance. He chose to shine.
There is much in this life that does not make sense. There is so much heartache, hardship, unfairness, injustice, pain and grief. But, just like Paul and Joseph and Job and Don, they did not let their light, momentary affliction destroy them. Instead, they chose to shine.
For, whether you know it or not, there is always someone watching you. It might be a co-worker, a neighbor, or a relative, and you have absolutely no idea that they are seeing your response to things. They are observing your reaction. They are admiring your ability to rejoice in spite of suffering. They are inspired that you’ve chosen to smile, to sing, to dance, to press on no matter what your burden or insurmountable obstacle. I was one of those who saw. I was one of those impacted. I was one of those who still sees in my memory, Don dancing with his beloved wife in the midst of a trial turned to gold.
Even so, I call on you, dear overwhelmed brother and sister in Christ, chose to shine like the stars in the universe as you stand blameless and harmless before a watching world, even a crooked and perverse generation, holding fast to the word of life (Philippians 2:14-16).
In this Christmas season, as you admire all those beautiful lights around you, may you reflect on Jesus who came as the LIGHT of the world. His own did not receive Him (John 1). He was rejected and despised, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief (Isaiah 53). But, did He diminish in His brightness? No. He is the LIGHT, and as such cannot help but shine!
Do you think you can top Jesus in your suffering or challenges or disappointments? Do you think you are poor? Think of Jesus born in a stable/cave around animals. Do you think you have no purpose? Think of Jesus who was born to die. That’s right. He was born the Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world. This means He was born as a sacrificial Lamb for us. Born to die. Do you think you are unloved or rejected? Reflect on Jesus was was rejected to the point of being crucified. Do you think you are treated unfairly or unjustly? Well, meditate on Jesus was was given a mock trial and condemned to die through no fault of His own by those who knew that He was innocent. Do you think your pain is greater? Think on Jesus who was beaten mercilessly, had his beard plucked out, thorns pressed harshly into His scull, was forced to carry a heavy cross, and then nailed to it where He took upon Himself the weight of all the sins of the world and died of heart failure.
This same LIGHT calls US His lights in this world (Matthew 5:14-16), and thus, we too ARE lights. And as lights, we are made to shine no matter what the storm, no matter what the attack, no matter what the injustice, no matter how fearful the situation, no matter how deep the darkness. You ARE light (Ephesians 5).
So, this Christmas season, choose to dance; choose to rejoice; choose to love others to Jesus; choose not to worry about anything but to pray about everything and let Jesus protect your hearts and minds with His peace (Philippians 4:6-7). Choose to shine as the lights of the world that Jesus has commissioned and created you to be, and do not lose heart! We can do all things in Christ who strengthens us, for He is greater in us that he that is in the world! (Philippians 4:13; 1 John 4:4). And Jesus has overcome the world! As Jesus said, “33These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world,” (John 16).
Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be found faithful, and as people of faith. Let Him turn your trial to gold. Let’s be ready!
In the wake of many disappointing elections in the United States and upheaval in Brazil because of their elections; in light of what is happening worldwide as the rumblings of war grow louder and longer such as in Tigray of Ethiopia, Ukraine of Europe, Taiwan, and the Middle East; and in the reality of tyrannical governments, such as China’s and Myanmar’s and North Korea’s, continuing to constrict and clamp down more tightly on their people, it is powerfully clear that we must live in the truth of 2 Peter 3:10-18.
“10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.14Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless…17You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”
Think about that. The heavens are going to disappear with a great roaring, crashing sound, and all will melt with extreme fire. And all the earth, everything held too dearly right now, will be loosed from the word of God’s great power, and will burn with an unimagined intensity until liquified, and will never be found again even if one sought to find it.
What then are we holding onto so tightly?
The affect of the knowledge that God’s kingdom is coming and that we are very much apart of it, and the hope of a new heavens and new earth and the conclusion of the present world is to be the cause of an inward change in us that in turn causes an “up-turn” of inner beliefs that leads to an alteration in outward behavior (https://biblehub.com/greek/391.htm). And this modification of behavior is to be one of holiness and reverent devotion to God. Verse 12 then goes on to explain that as we live out this holiness and reverence we will be “looking for and hastening” the day of God. To be “looking for and hastening” means we are eagerly and expectantly looking for this culmination of all things, and are earnestly desiring it above all else. It is not that we bring it into being by anything that we do or say or think. No. But it does mean that we are looking for it with every fiber of our being, our hearts singing and singly looking for it, awaiting with intense eagerness the coming of our King and His kingdom.
Dear reader, this is what God would have us doing now. He does not want us full of gloom and doom because of the disintegrating of this dying world and the death even of America. He does not want us disillusioned because of corrupt politics. He does not want us distracted by elections and talk of election fraud nor because our candidate did not get elected.
There are those who have tried their best recently to resuscitate America. They have poured their hearts, their time, their energy, their prayers, their money into saving her. The same is true also of other nations of this world such as Tigray, Myanmar, Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, China, Taiwan, Israel, Canada, and the list could go on indefinitely. But these nations are passing away, and we must not forget that God is still in charge. He sets up leaders and nations, and it is He who brings them down, even by bringing to power those we know are unworthy (Job 12:23; Psalm 75:7; Daniel 2 and 4). And we must not forget that this world is passing away! It is all being “loosed” as God intended long ago when He first created it. It is apart of His magnificent plan. This is that moment. This is that time.
Dearly beloved of Christ, our great God, Savior, and coming King is reminding us that He is “loosing” the world – He is letting the world go. And as He lets this earth go, we are to let it go too. It is time. And we are therefore, according to 2 Peter 3:14, to “be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless…” This means we are to be morally blameless, untainted by this world, faultless, and at peace – whole in our minds, hearts, and our unity with each other as the body of Christ.
Let us not get caught up in the error of the wicked that Christ cannot possibly be coming soon (2 Peter 3:1-7). Let us not become cynical or sarcastic regarding the eternal hope that we have. Let us not become weary and lose our mooring, our anchor and become like a helpless ship stuck on the sands of the shore. It is imperative that we keep our eyes on Jesus, our hopes in the coming of our Lord alone, and our minds set on things above and not on earthly things. Jesus warned us of all that is happening so that we would not be taken unawares, we would not be taken aback, we would not lose hope. He lovingly told us all we need to know in order that we might remain steadfast, firmly rooted in Him, planted upon the solid rock foundation of the eternal faith of the unchanging Christ.
Fear not little sheep, our Shepherd knew this day was coming, this valley of the shadow of death. There is nothing new in this to Him. He is in charge. He is in control. The devil can do nothing but what God gives him leave to do it. Thus, as Isaiah 50 states, 7“…the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.” Rest in this unchanging fact, and “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity!
(many sources are listed below, sources regarding Coverstone’s dream, Christians and Halloween, the fall of the Western Church, and the schism taking place in many denominations over transgenderism. Please, scroll down and view the sources along with quotes from many of those sources)
While a chaplain at a Christian health care facility who had a Christian board and mostly Christian residents, I was slapped in the face by an overwhelming acceptance of Halloween. For the years I was there, they went all out in decorating competitions, costume competitions, and little trick-or-treaters invited yearly to go room to room for candy. Competition judges were called in to pick winners, and pictures were posted proudly in our newsletter and even in the local paper. Each year I was reminded of how one by one those who would not wear a costume were eventually pressured into wearing one and participating. So for several years I made sure that I went home early before all the craziness would start so as to remain unnoticed. For several years I flew under the radar on the covert mission of ministering to the residents, and continued undetected like the military’s stealth bomber flying over an unsuspecting nation.
But, then one day I could not fly undetected anymore. They came after me by sending the most outspoken Christian – and she was very evangelistic and everyone knew her beliefs about Jesus – to talk to me about participating in the Halloween madness. She spoke of innocent themes, even Bible themes, in hopes to influence me to dress up the next year. If I was not the only one left not who had not compromised it sure felt like I was the only one the way they targeted me. And though I cannot remember at all what all I said to her, after all, I am not good in confrontational moments. But, I do know that my heart was this, “I cannot ever participate in the devil’s holiday no matter how innocently dressed it might be.” And that heart is what I communicated however imperfectly.
Martin Luther did no differently on that fateful day that he stood before his judges at the Diet of Worms in 1521. They called on him to recant what he had written in the form of 95 Theses nailed to the Wittenburg chapel door as well as other literature he had published. “The official transcript quotes him as saying, “Unless I am convicted by Scripture and plain reason (I do not accept the authority of popes and councils because they have contradicted each other), my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. So help me God. Amen.”” (https://christianhistoryinstitute.org/blog/post/here-i-stand-i-can-do-no-other/) Or as he is popularly remember as saying as quoted from Luther’s books, ““Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”
In Luther’s day, the Church was polluted with compromise, filth, unscriptural practices, and demonically inspired doctrine. Corruption, fornication, indulgences, purgatory, fear, and ignorance had so riddled the Church that it was ripe for judgment. The pronouncement of that judgment was heard in the footsteps of a monk-professor crossing the frosty street and ascending the Wittenberg chapel steps, hammer and nail in hand. The pronouncement of God’s verdict was heard loudly and clearly with the firm rap of the hammer to the nail, the echo of which has resounded for 505 years into this present year of October 31, 2022. And that hammer and nail, that pronouncement, that verdict, that uncompromised stance brought about a dividing of the sheep from the goats, a separation of wheat from the tares, gold from the dross, light from darkness.
Today, the modern day western Church is polluted with compromise, filth, unscriptural practices and the doctrine of devils. Everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes while at the same time saying God had given them leave to do it. Dizzy with the cloud of incantations said against them and ignorant of what the Scripture says while proudly saying otherwise, they are deceived into believing that mixing and mingling with the world is not a sin. This has produced a “root of bitterness” in our midst that has polluted from the top down. This is not a bitterness of unforgiveness, as some mistakenly think, but rather, is a root of rebellion that like a little leaven it leavens the who lump, tainting the whole. As Deuteronomy 29 so adeptly states, there will be those “18…whose heart turns away today from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood; 19and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, ‘I shall have peace, even though I follow the dictates of my heart’—as though the drunkard could be included with the sober.” The writer of the book of Hebrews addresses this in chapter 12 when he says, “14Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright…28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29For our God is a consuming fire.”
The Corinthians felt they were so wise, so enlightened that they could not possibly be contaminated by evil. They truly felt that they could justifiably attend the idol feasts wherein pagans gathered in fellowship around the sacrifice of an animal before an idol, and then were able eat together of that sacrifice and chant in worship to another god. Since they really did believe in only One God, they felt they were safe in doing so. The Corinthians really thought they were immune to this because they knew that the idol was just an idol, and the food was just food. After all, they were gathering for business purposes (that is where business people would gather in those days – which was not much different than secret societies of modern times), or because their family wanted to do so (like going to a restaurant), not because they believed all that stuff. However, the Apostle Paul in three chapters (1 Corinthians 8-10) lays out two very important points against such behavior. Number one, to do so will likely cause your weaker brother or sister to stumble, and that the Corinthian’s freedom was therefore unloving. Number two, the idol was not just an idol but was backed by a very real demonic entity, and that to have koinonia with pagans and to partake of the altar was to partake with demons. “14Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 16The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.18Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 19What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 20Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?” (1 Corinthians 10:14-22)
This is exactly what is happening when a church or Christian participates in Halloween by wearing the costume of the festival or partaking of the candy of the holiday or by hanging out those, particularly unbelievers, who are doing so. This is the modern day equivalent of idolatry.
But it goes beyond Halloween. The sanctuary of the living God has been polluted by little things here and little things there, until its very spiritual walls have been decorated with images much like in Ezekiel’s day. “6“Son of man,” He said to me, “do you see what they are doing—the great abominations that the house of Israel is committing—to drive Me far from My sanctuary? Yet you will see even greater abominations.”…10 engraved all around the wall was every kind of crawling creature and detestable beast, along with all the idols of the house of Israel. 11Before them stood seventy elders of the house of Israel…Each had a censer in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incense was rising. 12“Son of man,” He said to me, “do you see what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the darkness, each at the shrine of his own idol? For they are saying, ‘The LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken the land.’ ” And “14Then He brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz…16So He brought me to the inner court of the house of the LORD, and there at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they were bowing to the east in worship of the sun.” (Ezekiel 8)
So, what is happening in the Church? What has decorated its walls and filled its inner sanctuary? Oh where shall I begin?
There has been the witchcraft teaching of the “word faith” philosophy wherein each can call into being what is not, which fuels the fire of the greed of Balaam and covetousness and creates an atmosphere of entitlement and discontentment, which is contrary to Scripture (Jude 1; Colossians 3:5; 1 Timothy 6:6; James 4). We are riddled with New Age practices such as yoga while thinking it can be redeemed by calling it Christian and doing it at church; altered by mystical Catholicism and its labyrinth walks and contemplative prayer that empties your mind instead of filling it with Scripture (Psalm 1) and opens you up to the demonic; inundated with the Hindu Kundalini spirit parading as the Holy Spirit with its lying signs and wonders of the New Apostolic Reformation; flooded with the foul demonic doctrines of the manifest sons of God wherein Christians are all becoming christ, and Dominionism wherein Jesus cannot come back until we get the world cleaned up and all seven mountains are taken and made ready for Him; overwhelmed with the unbiblical thought that we are not to judge in matters of the body of Christ and sin and thus we are filled with adultery, fornication, homosexuality, transgenders, people co-habiting, pornography, etc.; infiltrated by witches and warlocks who get in close with the leadership in order to turn them from the narrow way and truth and render them ineffective; permeated with ecumenism and its many Jesuses (Isa of Islam, christ-consciousness of New Age, Krishna of Hinduism, the Jesus of Catholicism whose mother is a co-redemptrix and who requires works in order to be fully saved, the Jesus of Mormonism who is brothers with Lucifer and who became god and taught us how to become gods too), and the belief that the Christian Jesus is not the only way to heaven.
And now there is a great schism taking place in the body of Christ today because the Church has refused to “bind and loose” as they ought. Though Scripture clearly teaches that we must loose away from us that which is unholy, and bind to us what is holy via Biblical judgment and loving correction (Matthew 18; 1 Corinthians 5; 2 Timothy 2:23-26), believers of the western world are not well-versed in Scripture anymore, and they are indeed, perishing for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). For according to a Probe Ministries survey 70% of Christians today do not think that Jesus is the only way for everyone, and only half of Protestant pastors have a Biblical worldview. And according to “American Worldview Inventory published…by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University…ofan estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview.” (sources listed below)
It is no wonder then that so many can be and are deceived!
Last week Pastor Dana Coverstone shared a recent dream he has had that he entitled, “The Halloween Dream.” In this dream, Pastor Dana is late to the Sunday morning service at church, and as he runs into the church and toward the sanctuary he is told that he is late several times. After initially being barred from the sanctuary, he finally enters and encounters a crowd of Christians most of whom are dressed in costumes of witches and goblins, Bob the Builder, and kids dressed up like as if they were adult doctors and lawyers. The man speaking at the front was wearing a clerical robe and collar, and he was saying that the Ten Commandments were outdated “in practice and in principle” and that “a new set of ideas was needed” and that everyone should be able to do whatever they want to do because “grace is our friend more than our foe”.
There were a few in the audience who were not wearing costumes, and who were visibly though quietly disagreeing with the speaker.
Pastor Dana is then accosted by one of the ushers and told to quit noticing things and told to put on a costume. But, Pastor Dana did not comply and shouted, “What kind of church is this?” To which the man at the podium replied, “this is our church and we make the rules around here.” At that response, Pastor Dana ran to the front of the church and stated point blank, “By questioning the Ten Commandments you are violating the foundation of Scripture.” To which the minister replied, “We no longer need Scripture to live right. We must allow culture to guide us.”
At that moment Jesus entered the back of the church and marched to the front where He stated to the man at the front, “You can try to keep me out, you can discount my word, but I will not be silent or locked out.” At that, He walked up to the minister and took a hold of his face and took off the mask he was wearing, and behind the mask was a demonic pasty face. And everyone gasped. The speaker tried to speak, but Jesus said, “You will speak no more!” and breathed on the pale face until it disappeared like a wisp of smoke.
Jesus then said to the crowd, “As I expose the truth you’ll be given the chance to take your mask off. If not, your circumstances will tear them from your face and take your eyes with them. You that know the word know better. And those that never studied my word will stay dressed in a costume and miss heaven because you chose to remain in ignorance. Even if you hide from the truth it will confront you, and it will confront you to the front of your face.”
Jesus then said to Coverstone, “It’s not too late to warn the body as there are still many who will hear it. But woe to those who refuse to listen at this point.”
Ushers were attempting to keep people inside the church, but many were trying to leave. Costumes had been taken off, and many seats were empty. The majority remained behind however. After finally exiting with great effort, about 50 people in the parking lot questioned what was next. Coverstone then stated that Jesus had told them to warn the others. Thus, they all dispersed in every direction to do just that. The dream had started in the morning, but was now ending with the sun setting quickly. The time was short, the night was coming fast.
All that I have written about today is exactly this. God is shaking the church, and the masks are coming off. There is filth in the body of Christ, and it is being exposed. Church denominations are splitting over the transgender abomination, and other heresies and doctrines of devils are being revealed. And though, “evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived,” (2 Timothy 3:13) it is clear that we are not to “14… be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16). For we “…are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…” (1 Peter 2:9), and are called to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15-16). Indeed we are not our own but are bought at a price (1 Corinthiains 6:19-20), and are now the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5) who are being conformed into the image of Jesus (Roman 8).
And it is time to shine. It is time to get our lights out from under the bed. It is time to quit sitting idly by while ministers or any so-called Christian spew blasphemy from the pulpit or elsewhere. We are children of light, children of the day, and that light cannot help but expose darkness wherever we go!
“8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.12For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14Therefore
“Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” 15See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5)
This battle has gone on for ages, and Jesus has already made us more than conquerors (Romans 8). The battle that Martin Luther faced is before us still today. But, he made the choice to nail up those 95 Theses on October 31, 1517, and to stand unwaveringly in the face of a death sentence in 1521. And many before and after him made the same stand against the Goliath of their time, steadfastly persevering and even dying for the sake of the truth of the Gospel. They chose to live unadulterated and unpopular lives of holiness, to shine their lights into the darkness, to not become weary in well doing. Youth died because they owned a Bible or would not say the Rosary; uncompromising men and women of all ages outspokenly stood against the heresy of their times at any cost. For they knew that their lives were not their own. They belonged to Christ and him alone, and marched to the beat of a different drummer, heads lifted up looking for their redemption that was drawing near with every step. They died to themselves daily and counted themselves as already dead for the cause of Christ.
Why then do we, who have such a great cloud of witnesses, march so out of step and to the tune of the Pied Piper of this world instead of the cause of Christ? Why are we so lukewarm when the power of the Holy Spirit is still for us today and readily at hand if we would but press in and zealously seek that we might find? Why are we so dim when we are the lights of this ever darkening world?
Now is not the time for compromise in the name of some hybrid unbiblical love! Jesus is coming back for a Bride unpolluted by this world, unstained and untainted, holy and set apart, standing on His promises, people of unadulterated faith, shining out like stars in this wicked and depraved generation, holding forth the word of life!!!!!!!!!! Now is the time to stand, for we can do no other – so help us God!
Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready.

Quote: At the beginning of this video following the heading of ‘Should Christians Celebrate an Alternative Festival in Place of Halloween?’ Former Satanist John Ramirez responds, “Why would you take something that is demonic and slap the name of Jesus on it? Jesus isn’t going to show up and bless your stuff.”
At the 40 second mark after the heading ‘5 Reasons Why Christians Should Not Celebrate Halloween’ he begins to list them beginning with #1 Legal Rights, #2 Eternal Mistake, #3 Satanists Celebrate, #4 We Bring It Into Our Churches, and #5 Demonic Candies
At 1 minute and 5 second mark he says, “Even as a Christian you could say ‘I’m a Christian and I love God’ but you are cheating on Him on Halloween. When you dress up for Halloween…you are giving the devil the legal rights to change your identity.”
At the 1 minute and 25 second mark he says, “Anton Lavae…priest of the church of Satan…a devil worshiper for many, many years. He had 8,000 people in his church…he said, ‘I want to thank every Christian parent for allowing their children at least one time a year to celebrate my holiday.’”
At 2 minute and 25 second mark, “I don’t see Satantist…saying…’Good Friday’s coming, can I come to your church? Could I come celebrate Good Friday with you because’…I don’t hear Satanists packing out churches on Good Friday…”
At the 4 minute mark, “I’m gonna tell you as an ex-devil worshiper for 25 years…a lot of these candies that you give your kids that you buy in the store for Halloween, they are prayed for…demonic people have prayed over these candies…they pray over these costumes…”
Quote: The interviewer says, “what do you say to those Christians who are sort of on the fence or they’re struggling to know whether it’s the right thing to do?” Jenn Nizza responds, “Well, I think you have to think about why you are trying to redeem something that is demonic. Why are we trying to redeem that? If it’s the matter of…the nostalgia you want…why as a Kingdom follower are you wanting to participate in something that could open a demonic door? We know that the devil is manipulative…and he’s sneaky. So something that might be as seemingly innocent as bobbing for apples or having a little party or putting a costume…you don’t want to entertain something that belongs to…the evil one…that would open a door to demonic entities…don’t get involved in it. Don’t do it.”
Quote: At the 12 minute and 46 second mark Jenny Weaver states, “…the person that…started the satanic church – he’s passed on now – but he said he loves that Christians allow their children to participate in and worship the devil at least one night of the year.”
Quote: “Nearly 70% of born-again Christians disagree with the biblical position that Jesus is the only way to God, according to a new survey from Probe Ministries, a nonprofit that seeks to help the Church in renewing the minds of believers with a Christian worldview…The survey also found that among the top reasons given by born-again Christians for not telling others about their faith is the acceptance of pluralism. When asked why they don’t share their beliefs with others, born-again respondents chose “They can get to Heaven through their different religious belief,” “We shouldn’t impose our ideas on others,” and “The Bible tells us not to judge others” as their top three responses, respectively…confusion among Christians and what they believe was also recently reflected in the American Worldview Inventory published last month by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University. Of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview. The study showed, in general, that while a majority of America’s self-identified Christians, including many who identify as evangelical, believe that God is all-powerful, all-knowing and is the Creator of the universe, more than half reject a number of biblical teachings and principles, including the existence of the Holy Spirit.
Strong majorities were also found to errantly believe that all religious faiths are of equal value, people are basically good and that people can use acts of goodness to earn their way into Heaven. The study further showed that majorities don’t believe in moral absolutes, consider feelings, experience or the input of friends and family as their most trusted sources of moral guidance, and say that having faith matters more than which faith you pursue.”
Quote: According to a 2004 Barna study, “57% of the pastors of Baptist churches (other than Southern Baptist) had a biblical worldview, as did 51% of non-denominational Protestant pastors, 44% of pastors of charismatic or Pentecostal churches, 35% of pastors of black churches, and 28% of those leading mainline congregations.”
QUOTE: “The U.S. House of Representatives voted July 19 to codify same-sex marriage into law with the help of one-fifth of its Republican members and to the chagrin of Southern Baptist leaders.
With all the Democrats and 47 Republicans voting in favor, the House approved the Respect for Marriage Act in a 267-157 roll call. The proposal would repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and require federal and state recognition of same-sex marriages considered legal in the jurisdiction where they took place…
The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission “stands firmly opposed to this legislation, and it should not make any more advances in the legislative process,” said Brent Leatherwood, the ERLC’s acting president. “Its passage by the House is yet another reminder of how far our culture has moved away from the biblical understanding of marriage as being between one man and one woman for life and why God’s design for that union is meant for our flourishing.
“Marriage is bound up in the Gospel itself and so, regardless of any act of Congress, it is imperative that we, as Christians, continue to show how it is a picture of Christ joining with His bride, the church,” Leatherwood told Baptist Press in written comments.
Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said the vote shows the country’s “political class has decided to vote for same-sex marriage, and 47 House Republicans decided to get aboard the train.”
“Yesterday, those of us who know that marriage is and can only be the union of a man and a woman found ourselves facing the undeniable reality that our political class will not rise to defend society’s most fundamental institution,” Mohler wrote in a column Wednesday (July 20) for WORLD Opinions.”
QUOTE: “After months of preparation, a theologically conservative denomination has broken away from the Reformed Church in America, with 43 congregations joining the new body on New Year’s Day…
“Now the realignment that began in the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is reaching the Dutch Reformed – but without the lawsuits and acrimony that characterized some of those prior splits,” wrote Walton
“Delegates to the RCA General Synod in October approved recommendations that allow transferring churches to retain assets and church buildings.””
QUOTE: “A conservative group in the Reformed Church in America (RCA) has left the denomination and formed the Alliance of Reformed Churches (ARC) due to disagreements over same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy. Same-sex marriage and LGBT-identifying clergy have caused splits in many denominations and now the RCA will split as well. At the RCA’s 214th General Synod last October, the denomination set in motion the split after longstanding disagreements over LGBT issues.Churches that hold to the biblical view of marriage will be allowed to seek another denominational home, including the ARC, without giving up their assets and buildings…Some are concerned that the RCA, a denomination with less than 200,000 members and 1,000 churches, will not survive the split.”
QUOTE: “This week, North America’s oldest denomination will confront its gridlock over LGBTQ ordination and same-sex marriage. Votes cast in Tucson at the Reformed Church in America’s General Synod—delayed 16 months due to the pandemic—will chart the course for the already-splintering denomination…
The RCA is a historically Dutch Reformed denomination dating back to the 1620s, when New York was known as New Amsterdam. Today, the RCA has fewer than 200,000 members and 1,000 churches. While in theory RCA churches are united by their polity, history, and Reformed convictions, they hold a range of political and theological beliefs.
The RCA isn’t the only Protestant denomination facing division over views on sexuality. Next year, the United Methodist Church is expected to vote on a proposal to split the denomination over the inclusion of LGBTQ members, and the RCA’s sister denomination, the Christian Reformed Church, will grapple with its contentious human sexuality report at its own synod.”
QUOTE: ““The Christian Reformed Church, a small evangelical denomination of U.S. and Canadian churches, voted Wednesday (June 15) at its annual synod to codify its opposition to homosexual sex by elevating it to the status of confession, or declaration of faith.
The 123-53 vote at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, caps a process begun in 2016 when a previous synod voted to form a study committee to bring a report on the “biblical theology” of sexuality.
The vote, following a long day of debate, approves a list of what the denomination calls sexual immorality it won’t tolerate, including “adultery, premarital sex, extra-marital sex, polyamory, pornography and homosexual sex.””
QUOTE: “Any rebellion against God’s perfect design is sin. It separates us from God and distorts intimacy… Some seek to redefine the created nature of our sexuality in rebellion (Romans 1:24–27). They desire the intimacy or pleasure of sex apart from the divinely established context of marriage between a man and woman (1 Corinthians 6:16; cf. Genesis 2:24), such as homosexual or extra-marital sexual activity. Others seek an illusion of intimacy through actively indulging in lust, fantasizing, and/or pornography. All of these are indicators of our rebellion against God.”
QUOTE: “Increasing political and religious advocacy for homosexual1 practices, same-sex marriage, and alternate sexual identities has prompted us to clarify our position on these critical issues. We believe that all matters of faith and conduct must be evaluated on the basis of Holy Scripture, which is our infallible guide (2 Timothy 3:16–17). Since the Bible does speak to the nature of human beings and their sexuality, it is imperative that the Church correctly understands and articulates what it actually teaches on these matters which have now become so controversial and divisive.
A reaffirmation of biblical teachings has become all the more urgent because writers sympathetic to the LGBT (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender)2 communities have advanced revisionist interpretations of relevant biblical texts that are based upon biased exegesis and mistranslation. In effect, they seek to set aside almost two thousand years of Christian biblical interpretation and ethical teachings. We believe these efforts are reflective of the conditions described in 2 Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”3 (See also v. 4.)
It should be noted at the outset that there is absolutely no affirmation of homosexual activity, same-sex
marriage, or changes in sexual identity found anywhere in Scripture. Male and female genders are
carefully defined and unconfused. The consistent ideal for sexual experience in the Bible is chastity4
for those outside a monogamous heterosexual marriage and fidelity5 for those inside such a marriage. There is also abundant evidence that homosexual behavior, along with illicit heterosexual behavior, is immoral and comes under the judgment of God.”
It ends by stating, “Christians should also do all they can to assist the person who has struggled with homosexual behaviors and desires to change and find deliverance. Change is not always easy but it is possible. It may require the help of others in the body of Christ, such as counselors and pastors, as well as a supportive church fellowship. Christian organizations are also available to help those who seek to change their lifestyles.
We desire all to be reconciled to God—to experience the peace and joy that stems from the forgiveness of sin through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. God does not want any to perish in their sins; He invites all to accept His offer of eternal life (John 3:16). As part of His church, we issue that invitation to life in Christ to everyone.”
QUOTE: Under the heading, ‘General Assembly Declaration and Apologetic of Marriage,’ it says, “We, the Presiding Bishop, the General Board and the Board of Bishops of the Church of God in Christ, solemnly proclaim that the institution of marriage was established and ordained by God (Genesis 2:24) …We believe that the homosexual practices of same-sex couples are in violation of religious and social norms and are aberrant and deviant behavior. We believe that these unions are sinful and in direct violation of the law of God in that they are a deviation from the natural use and purpose of the body….in spite of the progressive normalization of alternative lifestyles and the growing legal acceptance of same-sex unions; we declare our opposition to any deviation from traditional marriages of male and female. Notwithstanding the rulings of the court systems of the land in support of same-sex unions; we resolve that the Church of God in Christ stand resolutely firm and never allow the sanctioning of same-sex marriages by its clergy nor recognize the legitimacy of such unions.”
Under the heading ‘Statement of Faith in Human Rights Declaration’: “The Church of God in Christ utterly rejects and uncompromisingly denounces the practice of homosexuality. Homosexual relationships are a violation of the biblical teaching on marriage and are strongly condemned in the scriptures… At the same time, as Christians we are called to treat all sinners with compassion and to lovingly proclaim the message of salvation and restoration to all, recognizing that we are all sinners in need of the atoning gift of Christ’s death and resurrection. Therefore for the Christian homosexual marriage is not a human right, nor a morally and legally sanctioned entitlement. Sexual preferences do not constitute rights.”
QUOTE: “Episcopal clergy are highlighting The Episcopal Church’s support for LGBTQ couples this week while condemning an announcement by the Vatican that it would not allow blessing of same-sex unions because the relationships are seen by the Roman Catholic Church as sinful…
QUOTE: “With an estimated 2.3 million members, the Episcopal Church is open and welcoming of the LGBTQ community. Unlike the Worldwide Anglican Communion, of which it is a part, the Episcopal Church does not condemn homosexuality.”
QUOTE: “We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of gender, sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves us all – no exceptions.”
Presbyterian Church (USA)
Note about the Presbyterian church: the Presbyterian Church (USA) is more liberal in theological and social issues and is said to be 5x as big as the Presbyterian Church in America. However, while the PC(USA)’s number of members is going down, the membership numbers of the PCA are going up.
QUOTE: “On Wednesday, June 20, the Presbyterian Church took a historic step by voting unanimously to accept three Overtures submitted at their biennial conference in Missouri. The Overtures both celebrate LGBTQ people of faith and speak out against religious freedom being used to discriminate against the LGBTQ community…
The Church’s move is in line with growing support in the LGBTQ nondiscrimination movement from religious leaders and congregations around the country. Last year, nearly 1,300 faith leaders signed on to an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, which concerned a bakery that refused service to a same sex couple by citing their religious beliefs. The brief stated that religion cannot be used to justify discrimination, and that businesses must be open to all. Furthermore, the weekend before oral argument in the case, more than 100 congregations celebrated the National Weekend of Prayer for LGBTQ Justice.”
QUOTE: “…the Presbytery of the Palisades had cast its vote in favor of an amendment to the PC(USA) Constitution that would change the description of marriage from being between “a man and a woman” to being between “two people.” In doing so, it had become the 86th presbytery to cast an affirmative vote, providing the majority needed among 171 presbyteries to approve the change.”
“I think for evangelicals the mystifying question is how then does the church speak prophetically about anything, how do we call anyone to repentance, if we’re simply conforming to the culture? You can observe the dynamic and astounding evangelical fruit God is producing through [some] new denominations, and I have great hope that an evangelical Presbyterian movement is going to happen. I regret that’s going to happen outside the PC(USA). I do think, though, there is a potential for hope and benefit. Let’s start talking about definitions of goodness, holiness, beauty, and truth, and stop talking about sex. Start talking about what it means to be in Jesus Christ, in His goodness, holiness, beauty, and truth. And then ask whether we individually and corporately as a denomination are going to conform to these realities.” —Carmen Fowler LaBerge
Presbyterian Church in America
Note: The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is more conservative than their cousin the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), and they are also about 5x smaller. However, in recent years the PCA’s membership numbers have been increasing while the PCUSA’s numbers have been in decline.
QUOTE: ““’The Nashville Statement,’ carefully worked out by the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood in 2017, is a timely statement that speaks into the current confusion surrounding gender and sexuality within the evangelical church (including the PCA) and the broader culture,” stated the Overture.
“Signed by many leaders within the Reformed and evangelical world, it is a balanced and biblically faithful attempt to ‘speak the truth in love’ (Eph. 4:15) on one of the most pivotal and controversial issues facing the church today.””
Article 1 of the Nashville Statement reads, “WE AFFIRM that God has designed marriage to be a covenantal, sexual, procreative, lifelong union of one man and one woman, as husband and wife, and is meant to signify the covenant love between Christ and his bride the church. WE DENY that God has designed marriage to be homosexual, polygamous, or polyamorous relationship. We also deny that marriage is a mere human contract rather than a covenant made before God.” https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement#articles
QUOTE: “Conservatives have officially parted ways with the United Methodist Church (UMC) after years of debate on same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly gay pastors. The new denomination, called the Global Methodist Church, took effect on Sunday following a five-day meeting with UMC bishops. As CBN News has previously reported, church members have been at odds for years with some members in the United States leading the call for full inclusion of LGBTQ people within the denomination.
While other mainline Protestant denominations have embraced gay-friendly practices, the UMC still bans them, though acts of defiance by pro-LGBT clergy have multiplied. Many have performed same-sex weddings. Others have come out as gay or lesbian from the pulpit.
Differences came to a head in February 2019 at a conference in St. Louis where delegates voted 438-384 for a proposal called the Traditional Plan, which strengthens bans on LGBT-inclusive practices.
A majority of U.S.-based delegates opposed that plan and favored LGBT-friendly options, but they were outvoted by U.S. conservatives teamed with most of the delegates from Methodist strongholds in Africa and the Philippines…
Global Methodist organizers have launched a new website that states the new denomination would allow women to serve at all levels and seek membership.
Regarding LGBTQ issues, organizers said the denomination would adhere to “the traditional understanding of Christian marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman and as God’s intended setting for human sexual expression.”
QUOTE: “Boyette said the Transitional Leadership Council doesn’t know how many more will follow this summer. He did not have numbers Monday for how many clergy, churches or conferences had joined the denomination with the launch, but he believes hundreds of churches across the U.S. already have begun the process to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church, and most will land in the Global Methodist Church.
“I don’t think anyone is dancing with joy that we are at this place in Methodism. I think there is a sadness that we have come to this and that we find ourselves in this season,” Boyette said.
QUOTE: “The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod overwhelmingly passed a resolution reaffirming its traditional, biblical stance on gender identity and sexual orientation, while also calling for churches to “minister compassionately” to people who identify as LGBT…
…the resolution reaffirmed “the biblical truth that God created humanity as male and female” and commended people who “continue to live chaste and decent lives in repentant faith” in spite of “same-sex attraction and gender identity confusion.”
QUOTE: “The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with approximately 3.8 million members, has passed repeated resolutions to welcome LGBTQ people since 1991. Of the three leading Lutheran organizations operating in the United States, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is considered the most welcoming and inclusive of LGBTQ members. Formed in 1988 with the merger of three smaller Lutheran organizations, the ELCA is based in Chicago and encompasses nearly 10,000 congregations and more than 3.8 million members across the country…
LGBTQ ministers have been ordained by the ELCA since 2010. However, church policy, like that for same-sex marriage, gives individual congregations autonomy in calling ministers to serve.”
QUOTE: “The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has ousted four of its churches, two for forming policies that are considered to be too welcoming of the LGBT community, while the other two for hiring pastors who were sex offenders.
QUOTE: “The Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with over 16 million members, has discriminated against gay and lesbian people for more than a quarter-century.
The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with over 15 million members, traces its history to 1845 when it broke off from Northern Baptists over slavery. The roots of Southern Baptist history go back to the Baptist churches established in the American colonies in the 17th century.
“In 2017, top leaders of the SBC joined other evangelical leaders in a statement Aug. 29 denouncing LGBTQ people and their identities as “inconsistent with God’s holy purposes in creation and redemption.”
The Southern Baptist Convention does not ordain openly LGBTQ people, nor does it ordain women. However, alternative Baptist denominations such as the Alliance of Baptists do ordain both women and LGBTQ people.”
QUOTE: “The American Baptist Churches USA is the fifth-largest Christian denomination in the United States, with approximately 1.3 million members and 5,000 congregations worldwide.
Although ABCUSA shares many traditions, beliefs and values with other Baptists, ABCUSA is a distinct entity from its relatives, the American Baptist Association (ABA), the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the Alliance of Baptists, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship…
A 1992 denominational vote determined “the practice of homosexuality” to be “incompatible with Christian teaching.” Noting that individual members of the denomination may not agree with all resolutions which are approved, the church does acknowledge that issues such as sexual orientation require full and continuous engagement in dialogue.
In 2006, more than 300 churches from the Pacific Southwest region of ABCUSA voted to withdraw from their 1.5-million member parent denomination after its leaders refused to address complaints about the membership of “welcoming and affirming” churches, or churches that accept as members unrepentant homosexuals, in the denomination…
LGBTQ ordination is not explicitly accepted nor banned in the American Baptist Churches USA. However, in several regions there are statements that a candidate must sign stating they are not a “practicing homosexual” prior to ordination.”
QUOTE: “”The controversy over homosexuality has consumed our agenda, our discussion time, and our energy; yet the controversy still threatens to break us apart as American Baptists. The prevailing view among American Baptists is that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.” Because American Baptist polity allows for respectful dissent, individuals and congregations who hold different viewpoints exist among us.”
QUOTE: “Formed in the early 1800s in response to the practice of Christian denominations acting in exclusion of each other rather than collaboration, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have a history of reaching out to other traditions. They established the Council on Christian Unity in 1910 to foster inter-denominational community and were active in forming the National and World Councils of Churches. In 1989, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ formed a close partnership that emphasized shared global in global and domestic ministries.”
“With a total membership of approximately 600,000 people, individual congregations are organized in 32 self-governing regions across North America.”
“At the General Assembly in 2013, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) voted to affirm and welcome LGBTQ people in all aspects of church life, including leadership. While the resolution does not dictate policy for individual congregations, the denomination actively encourages congregations interested in becoming more inclusive.”
QUOTE: “The United Church of Christ, a mainline Protestant denomination with about 1.3 million members, has been one of the most accepting religious groups of LGBTQ people, although not every church in the denomination is supportive…the United Church of Christ (UCC) is recognized as one of the most welcoming and affirming Christian denominations, celebrating same-sex marriages since 2005 and ordaining LGBTQ pastors since 1972. Numbering more than 5,000 churches and close to a million members, the UCC core values include an “Extravagant Welcome,” and the affirmation, “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.””
Ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, the UN’s Agenda 2030, the World Economic Forum and the Church, Free Masonry etc.
Quote: ‘Waking the Giant’ is a global ecumenical initiative of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF). It aims to empower churches to contribute effectively to the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. The initiative provides churches and church-related actors with tools and training to relate their on-going work to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the context of the global ‘Waking the Giant’ network, churches and church-related actors come together for experience exchange, mutual learning and joint action. LWF also supports churches and ecumenical partners in selected countries to set up implementation mechanisms for taking stock of their existing work in relation to the SDGs and engage in joint planning for direct action and advocacy…
In a worldly analogy to Christ’s promise to “make all things new” (Rev. 21.5), the SDGs represent an opportunity to enhance human dignity and our stewardship towards God’s creation…
Many churches have established themselves as important actors in the provision of social and development services and as advocates for global human values, such as gender equality, peace and justice. They distinguish themselves through the permanence of their presence, an often high level of credibility and a wide reach at community level, including to the remotest areas where state institutions may be absent.”
Quote: “The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) has joined with Christian churches and faith- based organizations to urge the international community to work towards a more just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The call comes in a joint statement to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), the main UN platform for follow up of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
Quote: “Together they will reflect and pray on the Assembly theme “Christ’s love moves the world to reconciliation and unity.”…The WCC Assembly is the largest ecumenical gathering of its kind and is estimated to bring together more than 4,000 Christians.”
Quote: “The controversial 10th World Assembly of Religions for Peace, backed by George Soros and the globalist-controlled German government and other powerful forces, aimed to unify the world’s religious organizations behind key elements of the establishment’s agenda — including a UN-guided “modern order.”
Operating in almost 100 nations, the alliance claims to be “the world’s largest and most representative coalition of religious and indigenous communities.” It is funded by Soros, the Rockefellers, the Ford Foundation, the UN Foundation, various UN agencies, U.S. taxpayers the State Department, and more.”
Quote: “Noted Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has issued a scathing criticism on Pope Francis and his association with The Great Reset…
The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Klaus Schwab’s idea of the Fourth Economic Revolution, which is the basis for previous discussions of “The Great Reset,” is mentioned by Vigano right at the opening of the clip. He then mentions Pope Francis’ connected to this movement.
The archbishop accuses Pope Francis of being a “zealous cooperator” in the Great Reset. He said that the Pope wants to demolish the Church and replace it with an organization inspired by Masons.
“The fourth revolution theorized by Klaus Schwab and the family of international finance find in Bergoglio [Pope Francis], not a neutral spectator, which would itself already be an unheard- of thing, but actually a zealous cooperator who abuses his own moral authority in order to support ab extra, outside the church, the project of the dissolution of traditional society,” said the archbishop.”
The outlet went on to explain that the Pope seems unconcerned about spirituality or sin. More to the point, he is concerned about climate change and the downfall of capitalism. All of the Pope’s main contributions, in a nutshell, are in sync with the objectives of the WEF and its Great Reset.
In fact, in December, Forbes reported that Pope Francis has formed a shadow council of the world’s top businessmen to address capitalism’s flaws. They’re called the “Guardians.”
Also according to another allegation, a Benedictine Nun named “Mother Miriam” has a video going around social media warning people of a globalist depopulation plan. Pope Francis, according to the nun, is the spiritual head of the globalist elites – which includes Bill Gates and George Soros.
According to Mother Miriam, the COVID vaccine shots are part of the global elites’ depopulation plan.”
Quote: On May 25, 2022, the Vatican News reported that the World Economic Forum and the Vatican’s global policies are in alignment and that the Vatican is already putting them into action. This was revealed during an interview with Catholic Priest Leonir Chiarello, who is “at the forefront of many WEF Forum agenda items at a global and local level.” 
The Vatican News reported the following:
“The Catholic Church is already committed to the various issues considered at the World Economic Forum, in Davos, both globally and locally … Just a few examples: the perspective proposed by Pope Francis on the care of nature and the promotion of a more inclusive economy in Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti … The various programs for job creation, development, education, and health care, among other programs promoted by the Catholic organizations and religious congregations at global and local levels.”
Quote: The former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) is under fire for his connections with globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF). The controversy erupted when Michael O’Fallon of Sovereign Nations shared an image of Dr. Richard Land with a briefcase carrying the logo of the World Economic Forum. O’Fallon posted the picture and then said, “Why is the SBC heading down a progressive, social justice, globalist paved path? This picture of the former President of the ERLC, Richard Land, is worth a thousand words. Focus on the briefcase…”
The World Economic Forum is a globalist organization pushing leftist goals such as Stakeholder Capitalism and concepts Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The WEF was all about the Leftist Build Back Better agenda in Westernnations. (For more on the WEF, read on.) The WEF is connected with other prominent evangelicals including Rick Warren.”
Quote: “Southern Baptist pastor Rick Warren told the globalists of the World Economic Forum (WEF) how to use the church as a partner during a pandemic or similar emergency. Warren promoted the use of free church volunteers and as a “universal distribution” system while at the 2008 WEF event in Davos, Switzerland. Warren promoted the church as one leg of a three- legged partnership between government, business, and religion. This highlights a recent Daily Wire report showing a link between churches spreading government propaganda during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The video begins, “This is Rick Warren author of The Purpose Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church. I’m here at Davos with a lot of my friends and we’re talking about what are the biggest problems on the planet and how are we going to solve them. Right now, I think there are five that I call global giants: extreme poverty, pandemic diseases, illiteracy, corruption and the spiritual emptiness…
The entire report is important; however, it is this deserves special attention: “During Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren’s special broadcast with Collins on behalf of Health and Human Services, he mentioned that he and Collins first met when both were speakers for the billionaires and heads of state who gather annually in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. They reconnected recently, Warren revealed, at an ‘off-the- record’ meeting between Collins and ‘key faith leaders.’ Warren did not say, but one can make an educated guess as to who convened that meeting and for what purpose, given the striking similarity of Collins’ appearances alongside all these leading Christian lights.
Quote: “The nation’s largest conservative, Protestant denomination revealed on Friday it is under investigation by the Biden administration over claims of sexual abuse and harassment…
The Southern Baptist Convention outsourced a report examining how the executive committee handled sexual abuse reports between 2000 and 2021. An outside firm, Guidepost Solutions, reported in a 288-page report in May that one member of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee compiled a list of 703 people “suspected of abuse” but never released it publicly. The report records “703 abusers” but notes curiously that only 409 are “believed to be SBC-affiliated at some point in time.”
Days after the report’s release, Guidepost Solutions tweeted its support for Pride Month and the LGBT movement. The Southern Baptist Convention subsequently printed a list of 205 pages of pastors, church workers, and volunteers “credibly accused” of abuse—a list, it notes, that includes cases that “resulted in an acquittal.” The report redacted the names and some details of those found innocent, or not accused of sexual impropriety—resulting in some entries with every detail blacked out.”
Quote: “Welcome. is a women’s group promoting evangelical involvement in immigration. Its website is welcomeimmigrants.org. That website’s Internet Registry information shows World Relief as its administrative contact, and an email contact address with the National Immigration Forum. The National Immigration Forum is a group funded by George Soros. Baptist Press promoted this women’s mission group in a story released September 12, 2019. Baptist Press detailed how Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty staffers explored the border at the invitation of an “online community of women” engaged in the immigration issue…
A review of the Internet registration for the Welcome. website, verifies the site was registered by World Relief and the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum. The National Immigration Forum (NIF) received millions of its funding from George Soros. (For links on the Evangelical Immigration Table and the National Immigration Forum to George Soros, see reports from National Review, The Institute on Religion and Democracy’s blog Juicy Ecumenism, the Center for Immigration Studies and The Christian Post.)…
This is not the first time Southern Baptist entities promoted a Soros-funded political propaganda arm promoting immigration. As previously reported, in 2017, the ERLC tweeted out Soros-funded immigration videos made by the group Christiandreamers.us. Later, Baptist Press published a story on one of the ChristianDreamers.us leaders.
Southern Baptist leadership including ERLC [ethics and religious liberty commission] employees have tweeted their support for open borders policies and promoted anti- Christian groups like the George Soros funded Media Matters…
So, why do so-called conservative Southern Baptists tweet out propaganda from Soros- funded groups like Media Matters and Christiandreamers.US? Why do ERLC employees attend a trip for a group created by a Soros-funded pro-immigration group? Why did Baptist Press promote a pro-immigrant group that is in partnership with the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum?
Quote: “Well, likely because Soros and his money have infiltrated many so-called Christian organizations. Soros has funded the National Immigration Forum. That group funded the Evangelical Immigration Table. Our Southern Baptist ERLC has even tweeted out immigration propaganda produced directly by the National Immigration Forum through the Christiandreamers.us website—a website created and controlled directly from Washington, DC by the National Immigration Forum.
Want more info on the Soros topic? Sovereign Nations has a podcast and supporting documents detailing Soros meddling in Christian groups. It exposes how progressive money has coopted conservative Christian organizations and leaders.”
Quote: “The Protestant evangelical church has been a massive conservative force over the past 50 years. With nearly 40 million members, evangelicals are normally politically active, voting for their morals as well as for the preservation of our republic.
But something has happened over the past 7 years or so that has radically changed the priorities and mission of the largest evangelical seminaries and churches in the United States. Seminaries previously focused on Scriptural exegesis and proclamation are now focusing on teaching their future pastors postmodern concepts such as critical race theory and intersectionality. Churches throughout the nation are pushing progressive agendas along with the teaching of unconscious bias training and the deceptive idea of ‘white privilege’.
Faithful church members are being encouraged to reject constitutional conservatives and to embrace open borders, reject normative patriotism, and embrace progressive concepts and social justice policies normally reserved for radical socialists or open society adherents.”
Quote: “First, it was Drag Queen Story Hour is a Blessing of Liberty David French supporting Bart Barber for President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, it is World Economic Forum speaker Rick Warren endorsing his friend Bart Barber for Southern Baptist Convention President…
The Daily Wire reported, “During Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren’s special broadcast with Collins on behalf of Health and Human Services, he mentioned that he and Collins first met when both were speakers for the billionaires and heads of state who gather annually in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum.

Quote: “In 1992 James Holly, a Southern Baptist medical doctor, requested that the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) conduct a study of Freemasonry. It was agreed, and Dr. Holly wrote a 70+page article that summarized his investigation: “Freemasonry Watch: The Southern Baptist Convention and Freemasonry.” Setting aside the study that was done, the SBC published its report on Freemasonry in 1993, noting SBC leaders who were also Masons, points of agreement between Freemasonry and Christianity, and areas of disagreement between the two. At that Convention the following recommendation was approved:
“In light of the fact that many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, while others are compatible with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, we therefore recommend that consistent with our denomination’s deep convictions regarding the priesthood of the believer and the autonomy of the local church, membership in a Masonic Order be a matter of personal conscience. Therefore, we exhort Southern Baptists to prayerfully and carefully evaluate Freemasonry in the light of the Lordship of Christ, the teachings of the Scripture, and the findings of this report, as led by the Holy Spirit of God.” H11-6 Last Revision Board of Directors February 2010
The Masons responded by publishing the following: “Because of your support, the vote of the Southern Baptist Convention is a historic and positive turning point for Freemasonry. Basically, it is a vitalization of our Fraternity by America’s largest Protestant denomination after nearly a year of thorough, scholarly study. At the same time, it is a call to renewed effort on the part of all Freemasons today to re-energize our Fraternity and move forward to fulfilling its mission as the world’s foremost proponent of Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God” (The Scottish Rite Journal, Aug. 1993).
Note: Though Dr. Holly suggests at the beginning of his article that everything within the SBC was resolved in the 1993 statement, upon reading the above, it was not resolved at all. In fact, the Freemasons praised the convention’s decision and thanked them for the support. That is not resolved, at least not in the correct way.
Quote: “This booklet has been prepared with a prayer for revival among Southern Baptists. It does not pretend that the only problem hindering revival is Freemasonry. It does recognize however that the leaven of the occult will corrupt the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and will sap her vitality.
The men who are involved in Freemmasonry, on the whole, are not evil men. Yet, they are men who are being used for an evil purpose. It is the spirit which empowers the Lodge which we wish to expose. The ludicrousness of the secret words and the secret handshakes would be laughable if it were not for the spirit behind Freemasonry. The spirit makes this more than a bad joke, it makes the issue of Freemasonry among Southern Baptists a serious issue of life…
“WHAT ARE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS TO DO ABOUT FREEMASONRY? *
“The intent of this booklet is to encourage the Southern Baptist Convention to take a stand on the issue of Freemasonry, and then for each individual church to apply that stand as they are led by the Lord. Recently, an African pastor, led to Christ by a Southern Baptist missionary, was asked, “What are the hind- rances to revival among Southern Baptists?” He said: “rebellion…ignorance of the supernatural (spiritual warfare, not charismatic gifts)…and the toleration of Freemasonry in the church.”
How each of our hearts yearn for the Holy Spirit empowered, Christ-honoring, life-changing revival to sweep America. It may happen. It can happen. We can be a part of it happening. Prayerfully read this booklet and support the S.B.C.’s declaring of Freemasonry to be incompatible with the message of the Bible and with the ministry of the church.
There is much talk of food scarcity these days. They call it “food scarcity” to be more palatable for western people who are not used to famine. But, essentially, it is famine that is coming, and along with it is an economic collapse and an overwhelming realization of their loss of liberties.
As Christians we all likely have read by now the story of Joseph near the end of the book of Genesis. After enduring the rejection of and betrayal of his brothers, slavery, a false accusation that lands him in prison for years, and a prison-mate who upon being released initially forgot how much Joseph had helped him. Then, Pharaoh had a dream, and the prison-mate remembers Joseph’s interpretation and fulfillment of his own dream. Thus, Pharaoh called for Joseph to interpret his own disturbing dream of the fat cows and emaciated cows, the full, beautiful ears of corn and the dry, inedible ears of corn. And Joseph explained to Pharaoh that both of his dreams were one and the same, and was doubled because God was certainly and very shortly going to bring it to pass. It was then that Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of the whole land of Egypt and Pharaoh’s household as well, and Joseph had all the excess, abundance of grain stored up in every city for seven years. At the end of those seven years of abundance, everyone becomes overwhelmed by great loss and hunger, not just in Egypt but also the surrounding areas. And God used the dream of Pharaoh and the interpretation of Joseph in order to supply in time of great need.
It has been said by many Christians that we as Christians are to be storing up food for our families and to share with others. But no where in the gospels did Jesus ever say that “when you see everything coming to pass store up food to share.” No where in the gospels did Jesus say, “you all are to be like Joseph storing up food in that final generation.” Not even the Apostle Paul said this, nor John, nor Peter, nor James or Jude. Instead Jesus said to lay up treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21), and to trust Him for our daily bread (Matthew 6:11 and Luke 11:3). After all, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matthew 4).
What is clear from Scripture is that a time was coming and is here of a famine of the word of the Lord. “Behold the days are come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos 8:11). It is clear from Scripture that we are to be ready in season and out of season to share the hope that we have in Christ (2 Timothy 4:2). This means, that on good days and bad days, perfect moments and imperfect moments when we feel sick or down or overwhelmed or are grieving a loss that we are to be ready to give an answer of hope to those who have none. And we are to be redeeming the time for the days are evil. This redeeming of the time carries with it the concept of “seizing the day” or seizing the moment and not letting it pass us by. It is a merchant’s metaphor used here for merchants would “diligently observe the time for buying and selling, and easily part with their pleasure for gain” (Matthew Poole’s Commentary, https://biblehub.com/commentaries/ephesians/5-16.htm). Even so, we as Christians are to “5Act wisely toward outsiders, redeeming the time. 6Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4). Again, redeeming the time means to grasp the moment you are given for a productive purpose of presenting the Gospel of hope.
And indeed, incredibly dark, cold, and hard times are coming upon America, the likes of which Americans have not known, times of scarcity and lack, times of discomfort and want, overwhelming times of great palpable evil. But, God has called His Church, His Body, His Bride to be lights, to extend hope and to be aware that the greatest needs will not be physical nor even emotional, but spiritual. For the greatest lack is of spiritual bread, spiritual water, spiritual clothing, spiritual bank accounts in the heavens.
You see, if we are to be like Joseph at all then we are to be the spiritual Josephs of this generation. And in the famine that is coming, and when disasters hit, we are to open up those spiritual storehouses of Biblical grain to nourish and point them to Jesus. They may thirst, but their greatest thirst is for the Living Water (John 4 and John 7). They may think they only hunger physically, but they are hungry for the Bread of Life (John 6). They may think they are only upset because they want new clothes, but really they need the Robes of Righteousness to clothe their spiritual nakedness (Isaiah 61:10, Revelation 3:17-19). They may be intent upon their loss of finances or their home or their cars or other worldly goods, but they are clueless as to their great need to buy of God gold refined in the fire. Indeed, even earthy Christians who are so tied to this world will need to be reminded of this like the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3.
Be ready Christian. Be ready. Having gone through your own trials like Joseph, be ready to give an answer. Be ready with the Word of Life. Be ready with the rivers of living water bubbling up from deep inside you. Having faced the lion and the bear like David, be ready now for Goliath. Take up those 5 smooth stones and run out to take on the giant. Sink that stone into his forehead and then take up his own sword and chop off his head. Get up oh Christian for the days are upon us wherein people are desperate for the word of hope that we have, for the treasures of salvation that we have, for the hope of eternity that we have! Forget about your comforts or discomforts. Forget about your comfort zone. Let go of your past whether good or bad, let go of all inadequacies and rise up, for the time is now! Is not His grace sufficient for you? Is not His strength made perfect in our weakness?
The field is white unto harvest, the storm clouds are brewing, the sun is setting, and Jesus is coming soon to take up His Bride and then pour out His wrath upon the earth. Wake up! Get up! Rise up! All that you’ve memorized in Scripture, all that you’ve learned from the Bible, all that you’ve believed even through your own tribulations, good times and bad, all that you’ve stored up in your knowledge bank, it is time to share it, to extend it, to offer it to this generation of darkness that is desperately in need. Be bold! Be courageous for the Lord our God is with you!
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you, and His glory will appear over you.3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Isaiah 60)
This article is a warning. It is a warning to Christians to begin right now practicing discernment. Don’t just accept something someone says as from the Lord because you agree with it or because it sounds good. We are to test the spirits behind that message to see if they are from God (1 John 4:1).
After finally getting to the beginning of the interview of Barry Wunsch who was supposed to “be discussing fresh revelation regarding Donald Trump, America, Canada, exposure of leaders and more…” according to the website summary, I realized there was something wrong. No, not with what he was saying necessarily. Actually, I cannot remember what he was saying because what he kept “doing” was so pronounced. As he began praying at about the 10 minute and 35 second mark, he made loud, strange outbursts. Immediately following the prayer he started sharing what he said the Lord told him early in the morning of September 22, 2022 at 4:56am. Of course I was trying to listen to what he was saying in order to weigh the words carefully, but was suddenly taken aback by more loud outbursts — lots of them. It was then that I no longer dismissed these outbursts but recognized them for what they are: demonic.
Andrew Strom a few years back exposed them as Hindu “kriyas” that “enlightened” individuals demonstrate involuntarily. This is explained in the youtube video produced by Andrew Strom called “Kundalini Warning” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r5fMUct_co&t=4s. Another short video taken from another of Andrew Strom is one entitled, “Bill Johnson, Bethel and the New Age — Shocking — Kundalini Warning — False Spirits,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wKPjf1mjb8
How does Kundalini manifest? According to https://occultist.net/kundalini-awakening-symptoms/ some of the many symptoms of Kundalini are “Involuntary movement of the body (occurs more often during meditation, during moments of rest or sleep): spasms, tremors, feeling of an inner force that pushes oneself to put oneself in postures or to make movements in unusual ways. (May be the case of a misdiagnosis such as epilepsy or “restless leg syndrome” or ekbom syndrome)” and “Spontaneous vocalizations (including laughter and crying) – as involuntary and uncontrollable as hiccups.”
The website https://www.whenkundaliniawakens.com/kundalini-awakening-symptoms also says that some of the many symptoms of Kundalini are “Constant insights and “downloads”…A sense of something moving inside you, like an electrical current or a bloodstream you can feel. At times it can feel like overflowing water, fire, or wind…Shaking of the entire body or involuntary jerking of different parts of your body known as “Kriyas”. Kriyas can also manifest as the body going into spontaneous Yoga poses – even if you never practiced Yoga before…Vivid dreams and lucid dreams.”
To wrap things up very quickly here, Barry Munsch is under the influence of Kundalini, and to put it in Biblical terms, a demon. No matter what good things he says or how much he says God woke him and spoke directly to him, do not believe a word he says. Kundalini and the Holy Spirit do not mix any more than salt water and fresh water mix. Once the salt water enters the fresh, the fresh is no longer fresh and has been rendered undrinkable. Even so, Barry’s words have been contaminated with a Kundalini manifestation rendering the words contaminated and unacceptable.
God is calling Christians to be holy and set apart, to be separated wholly unto Him. The good news right now is not that America will be made great again or that what is coming will soon pass or that God is not finished with America or that God needs America to spread the gospel. No. The good new and indeed the BEST news that there is is that Jesus is coming back for His Bride that has made herself ready. That in and of itself ought to propel the Bride forward to preach the gospel speedily, live a holy life rooted and grounded in the cleaning word of God, and to get up and lift up her head for her redemption is drawing near!! Let’s quit wasting our time, and instead, redeem the time for the days are evil (Ephesians 5).
The 4th of July is now over, and the smoke of the fireworks have cleared. Parades have ceased. The drumming patriotic songs have resonated into the annals of time. People have died. Those left behind are grieving. Prices are rising. Famine is looming. The economy is falling.
And we are still here.
Daily I am reminded, by the crows who come to me for scraps, of how God provided for Elijah using the ravens. Indeed, Jesus reminds us in Luke 12 that the ravens do not have storehouses nor barns, but God always provides for them. Thus, the crows are a reminder to me that God will always provide; no matter how hard things get or how dark our days “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches over me!”
As this world grows darker and darker, I am learning why the caged bird sings. I am pressing on in spite of my own many physical infirmities and those of my aging parents, and all the questions and buried dreams. I am hoping still, always hoping in the return of my Christ, worshiping still the glorious, risen King, and loving more deeply the unfathomable, eternal God. As His Holy Spirit inspires and empowers, I serve in my church, write articles to expose the growing darkness, as well as to encourage other Christians to press on and shine more brightly than before, and write worship songs to my King.
The time is short. Christ’s return is more immanent now than before. The greatest tribulation that this world has ever seen is near. And we as the Church must pray to be accounted worthy to escape all that is coming upon the earth (Luke 21:36). It is time to be ready!
We are the examples of Christ in this world, living epistles (2 Corinthians 3:2). We are the examples of His love. And love is not about self, it is about God and others. It is not about our own comforts or our own interests or our own desires – rather, it is all about dying to self, taking up our cross daily, and following Him (Matthew 16, Luke 9). It seems that the “American” needs to be extracted from the “Christian”. American Christians all too often have an “American” concept of Christianity that is all about life being good and good things happening and self always being satisfied and comfortable. But, really, what is comfortable about dying? What is satisfying about taking up one’s cross? Dying and the cross is all about learning obedience through the things that are suffered, whether through persecution or illness or hardships or unfairness. Yes, the “American” must come out of the Christian, in order for the Christian to thrive, grow and be ready.
We are all birds in the cage of this world. Though each of us is born to fly, to sing, to build nests in tallest trees or scruffy bushes or on rugged sides of cliffs; to drink from refreshing, ever-flowing, snowy streams that flow down from the throne of the mountain of God, and to lift high our voices in song to our all-glorious Creator. But, we have been placed in the cage of this world – dank with hardships, steely with bars of suffering, and fed on spoonfuls of pain. But, inside of us is a song so deep that we cannot help but sing, and hearts overflowing to Christ our King. For one day, because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we know that we shall fly on wings unclipped, lifted high on refreshing breezes into the life-giving presence of the living God. And so, we as caged birds with all that is within us sing, sing, sing – unceasingly sing praises unto our Lord of lords and King of kings!
But, this also means that the return of Christ is all the closer! Indeed, the trumpet call of God about to sound, the voice of the archangel to shout, and Jesus to snatch His Bride home! Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!!! Hallelujah!!! Amen! And the dead in Christ will rise first, and then those of us who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. And we will forever be with the Lord!!! (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
But, “until then my heart will go on singing Until then with joy I’ll carry on Until the day my eyes behold my Saviour Until the day God calls me home.”
And as the rest of Rhonda Vincent’s song goes: (stanza 1) “My heart can sing when I pause to remember, A heartache here is but a stepping stone, Along a path that’s winding always upward, This troubled world is not my final home. (stanza 2) The things of earth will dim and lose their value, If we recall they’re borrowed for a while, And things of earth that cause this heart to tremble, Remember there will only bring a smile.”
God bless you, dear friends, as you chose to sing. Jesus is coming. And until then, with joy we’ll carry on, for He is our provider (Psalm 37:25), the One who still holds the world together by the word of His great power! (Hebrews 1:3).
Thankfully, “Jeremy” the ex-32nd degree Freemason has been well. We have not heard from him since last July. If you are not sure who that is, please refer to this link: https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/09/11/words-of-warning-from-ex-32nd-degree-freemason/. He has moved to another state in an area south of the Appalachians, and has been enjoying God’s provision, providence and life-changing power in his life. We praise the Lord for this, and are excited to finally hear from Mr. Jeremy again, for he indeed, is highly valued and very much prayed for.
In the video below more is confirmed concerning the dangers of drinking from the municipal tap water supply in cities and towns. Furthermore, he encourages the listeners to keep any prepping they’ve done a secret for their and their family’s safety. Dangerous days are ahead, and people are going to get desperate. After all, desperate people do crazy things, especially starving people.
Though he does not mention the “hope” of the rapture in this video, I know in the past he has stated that though he “hopes” the rapture will happen, he does not expect it. What he does expect are hard times, including persecution. This is why he prompts people to be physically prepared with food, ways of getting water and ways to purify water, books on using God’s creation for medicinal purposes, etc.
As for Holy Light Ministries, the hope of the rapture is very real and very immanent. That being said, being prepped for any type of natural disaster with some food and water is always wise. Nevertheless, regarding the very end of days in which we are living, Jesus did not teach us to prep, but rather, to trust. Jesus encouraged His disciples to not be consumed with their need for food, daily necessities, clothes, etc. like those who are without Him (Matthew 6:25-34; Luke 12:22-34). Instead, Jesus tells His followers to approach God in faith, praying “give us THIS DAY our DAILY bread” (Matthew 6; Luke 11 — the Lord’s Prayer) and makes it clear that we are not to worry about tomorrow in regards to anything. After all, if God takes care of the ravens and the flowers, will He not all the more take care of us who are His children? (Luke 12:24 and Job 38:41).
Furthermore, Jesus said that when believers see end times events taking place one right after the other that we are to “lift up our eyes for our redemption is drawing nigh” (Luke 21:28). He could have at that point said, “you all had better prep” or “you all need to lay up food and have ways to access water” or “make sure you have a grab bag with dried goods,” but He did not.
If perchance we do go through some hard times ahead just before He calls us home, let us remember this encouragement from Psalm 33 (also found in Psalm 37:19):
“18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. 21For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. 22Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.”
Thus, it is wise to have some extra food on hand or even a water purification system, but we encourage everyone to remember what Jesus said in Matthew 6, “31“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” And most importantly, Luke 21, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
Jesus is coming soon, and our blessed hope is in Him! (Titus 2:13)
It has been said time and again by Church leadership, specifically under the umbrella of the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation, also called Third Wave) that modern prophets are learning, and that even if their prophecies are incorrect this does not make them false prophets. And on top of this, these same leaders predict better days are coming for America. However, what does God say?
In Jeremiah 28 an interesting story unfolds. Before a group of people and priests, a prophet named Hananiah dramatically prophesied that God was going to break the Babylonian yoke of slavery off of the Jews. To make this more vivid, he placed a wooden yoke on Jeremiah, then took it off him and broke it. The prophet Jeremiah agreed, saying, “Amen: the LORD do so: the LORD perform thy words which thou hast prophesied,” (Jeremiah 28:6). However, he also added, “Nevertheless, hear thou now this word…the prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him,” (Jeremiah 28:7a, 9). Jeremiah agreed with him, but gave the disclaimer that everyone would know if the prophecy was true if it came to pass. Thus, he referred them back to Deuteronomy 18:20-22 which states, “And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?” (Deuteronomy 18:21). And God answers that if the prophecy does not come to pass, then the prophet has “spoken presumptuously” and the people are not to respect that person as a prophet. First John 4:1 agrees with this when it says that we are “not to believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Many false prophets. Many.
The story in Jeremiah then takes a twist. God speaks to Jeremiah at home, telling him to go back to Hananiah to tell him the yoke is made of unbreakable iron. “Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now Hananiah, the LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust a lie…this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD. And Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month” (Jeremiah 28:15,16b-17).
So, let’s get this straight. Hananiah had thought he was right. “I am sure this prophetic word was well received by the people. It brought edification and comfort. It promised blessings and restoration. It spoke kindly to those who had suffered loss and assured the fulfillment of God’s promises. Most likely the people were praising God and some even weeping for joy” (John Bevere, “Thus Saith The Lord?” pg. 100). It did not seem even slightly false…………but…….. it was NOT a word from the Lord!
Not only was it NOT a word from the Lord, it taught the people to rebel against what God had said. For in Jeremiah 27, Jeremiah prophesied that the Jews were to serve Babylon and not resist. But they did not want to hear that! That certainly could not be a word from the Lord! After all, why would God say that they were to submit to a tyrant? Why would God want His people enslaved to Babylon? But, when Hananiah spoke, certainly that was the word of the Lord for it promised good and not evil, liberty and not captivity! The Jews were God’s chosen people, not slaves. The Messiah was to come through them, specifically through the line of Judah. God surely must be sending this deliverance and not chains. Thus, Hananiah’s arrogant words led the people to believe a lie and to rebel against what God really had said.
But then, perhaps, Hananiah had not been prophesying long. Couldn’t he have just gotten it wrong and yet not be a false prophet? He meant well, right? Perhaps he and all those dreamers just needed to be a part of a “school of the prophets.”
Here then is the real question. Is prophecy of the Holy Spirit or of man? If it is of man, then error is quite possible. But, if it is truly of the Spirit, then error is out of the question. God does not make mistakes.
It says in 1 Corinthians 12 that prophecy is amanifestation of the Holy Spirit. This means, that it is the Holy Spirit speaking through the person that is prophesying. Can the Holy Spirit get it wrong????? “The Holy Spirit is not in training, and He only speaks the true and the pure. The error comes when we speak when He has not or we are silent when He is speaking…Samuel, when he was only a boy, gave a pure and fully accurate prophecy his first time (1 Samuel 3:11-19). He did not have to “grow in the gift”.” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 98).
The Holy Spirit DOES NOT EVER GET IT WRONG!
“In the latter days you will understand it clearly. I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied” (Jeremiah 23:20b-21). God goes on to say that He is “against those who prophesy lying dreams…and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them” (Jeremiah 23:32). Truly, “They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word,” Ezekiel 13:6. Wrong prophecy is divination, plain and simple. “Simply put, these prophets speak their own oracles as though they were God’s. Yet the words are not God’s but their own. This is another way of describing the imitation or counterfeit of the true prophetic word of the Lord” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 90).
The Hananiahs, false prophets of a false hope, are not gone, but are living and well today. And there are many of them. There are modern day Hananiahs who prophesy with great fervor and emotion, and more often than not they are wrong. Dead wrong. Yet they have no fear of death, for they say that God does not judge them based on the O.T. any longer.
But….. God does not change, and He honors His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Thus, “Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake…because of the LORD and because of His holy words. For the land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land mourns, and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up…both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the LORD. Therefore their way shall be to them like slippery paths in the darkness, into which they shall be driven and fall, for I will bring disaster upon them in the year of their punishment, declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 23:9a,c 10a, 11-12).
And indeed, the nations of the world have rejected God, and His judgment is descending like a tidal wave, even upon America. The rot goes deep. The filth is rampant. The degradation horrific. For it is not merely among the unsaved, but also the saved. But few see it. According to the film “Before the Wrath” only 18% of western Christians believe that Jesus will come back in their lifetime, and only 15% believe in core Christian tenants. The Laodicean church of the west thinks they have need of nothing, that they are safe — but they are not safe and must repent. “17Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.” (Revelation 3)
For over 40 years all together the prophet Jeremiah prophesied, warning the people that Babylon would invade, kill, and take them captive, and then continued to prophesy after the invasion, calling the people to live peaceably under Babylonian captivity. But, ever step of the way the Jews rejected God’s word to them — first to repent and then to live blessed lives while in captivity. They firmly believed those who prophesied good things, that Judah would be made great again, that better times were coming, and that God would preserve them because of the Temple (Jeremiah 7:4). They were after all, God’s people. He would not abandon them. But God told them point blank, “…I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh,” (Jeremiah 7:14).
So, what happened to Shiloh? Psalm 78 tells us. “56Yet they tested and provoked the Most High God, And did not keep His testimonies,57But turned back and acted unfaithfully like their fathers; They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.58For they provoked Him to anger with their high places, And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.59When God heard this, He was furious, And greatly abhorred Israel,60So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,The tent He had placed among men,61And delivered His strength into captivity,And His glory into the enemy’s hand.62He also gave His people over to the sword,And was furious with His inheritance.63The fire consumed their young men, And their maidens were not given in marriage.64Their priests fell by the sword, And their widows made no lamentation.” And 1 Samuel 4 adds that 30,000 (vs 10) plus 4,000 (vs 2) died that day, including Eli’s sons, and the ark of the covenant was taken by the Philistines (vs 11).
What had God’s people done to warrant this? According to Jeremiah 7, they had oppressed the orphan, stranger, and widow, been unjust to one another, shed innocent blood, burned incense to Baal and followed after other gods, were a den of robbers, murders and adulterers, and felt they were justified in doing so because God’s Temple was in their midst.
Do you think that the Church is any different today? Do you think that idolatry is not rampant simply because we do not have idols made out of wood and covered with gold or silver? Are we not the most litigious society in the history of the world, dragging one another to court constantly? Are not the defenseless and poor oppressed? And what shall we say about the greed of both the poor and the rich, for no one is ever satisfied? Indeed, was not Baal the god of prosperity? And what of adultery? How many have divorced and remarried not taking into account what both Jesus and the Apostle Paul stated regarding this matter? What about sexual immorality, from couples having sex before marriage, to those living together before marriage, pornography, watching movies with sex scenes and/or nudity while excusing it by calling it art or it’s just what Hollywood produces, and the list goes on and on? And are not the blood of the innocent shed daily in our cities and towns, even in the name of scientific research and vaccines — and most of us have had one vaccine or another that has aborted fetal tissue in it? And still others have voted for and elected politicians who defended killing babies without even blinking an eye.
And while the Titanic of America sinks into the frigid, icy ocean, Christians continue planning their vacations and job promotions or retirement, and hopes for tomorrow. Like Judah, they are in denial, and fully persuaded by an indomitable hopefulness that America will be spared God’s judgment, that somehow our grave evil will be overlooked because of the goodness of our past. But Shiloh was not spared. Judah was not spared.
As the darkness deepens, the false prophets of the NAR prophesy a false hope to the cancer ridden, dying nation of America are trusting “…in lying words, that cannot profit,” (Jeremiah 7:8). Just as Jeremiah spoke boldly to a his own dying nation of believers who did not want to hear such hard truth, even so American Christians do not want to hear that this nation once “under God” is falling under His judgment in their lifetime. The Constitution has already fallen, and everything else is about to fall: the economy, the American dream, the glory of America . . . And judgment starts first at the Lord’s sanctuary (Ezekiel 9:6).
Jesus is coming soon. It is time to wake up. It is time to repent. it is time to pray. It is time to be ready.
Because of all the recent and increasing talk of food shortages, sky rocketing grocery store prices, and whispers of economic collapse, it seemed imperative to address this topic briefly. I need not list the rather LONG list of sources regarding this, for they are easy enough to find in search engines online. But, it is important to share Really Graceful’s video she produced recently which asks important questions and connects some very important dots about the recent destruction of food processing plants across the United States. As the pieces of the puzzle come together, the picture that emerges shows a deft orchestration of these fires and plane crashes. Please, watch this very insightful video listed below entitled, “Something Strange is Happening to U.S. Food Processing Plants.”
Yes, it does appear that the Revelation black horse is riding or preparing to ride very shortly, wherein prices of an individual person’s daily necessary food will cost one full day’s pay (Revelation 6). What Jesus related in Matthew 24 about famines is very much on the verge of unfolding not just in Africa or some other third world nation but worldwide, and is in the process of being implemented now. No, things will not get better. They will get worse.
Yes, this famine and even economic collapse has been planned and is being implemented through the deliberate destruction of livestock, the pollution of crops as well as paying farmers not to plant crops, the recall of perfectly good produce and other food products from grocery store shelves, fertilizer shortages, and the destruction of food processing plants upon which American’s depend. The leaders of the world may blame this “food shortage” otherwise known as famine on the COVID “plandemic” or on Russia and its war against Ukraine. But the war in Ukraine is merely the the detonation of a planned, controlled demolition of Europe’s bread basket that will in effect bring Europe, Russia, the U.S., Canada, etc. to economic collapse. Why? World leaders are ready to implement a new world order blockchain, digital currency, are already bringing about their new world order agenda, and are ready to introduce their new world order leader.
I conclude by turning everyone’s eyes to Psalm 33 which reads,
“18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.”
Whether or not Christians actually endure a full-fledged famine, we are for certain experiencing the beginning of scarcity and are apart of economic upheaval right now. And no matter how much we will go through or will not go through, Jesus said of these days that we are in, “See that you are not troubled…” (Matthew 24:6), and “do not be terrified” (Luke 21:9), for “when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28).
Along with this encouragement Jesus also warned, 34“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21)
I want to call on all of you to reread Daniel, Zechariah, Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 17, Luke 21, 2 Timothy 3, 2 Peter 3, and Revelation. I then want to remind you that Jesus did not advise that His people store up food, have water purification systems, self sufficient farms, emergency grab bags, or backyard chickens. And really, what security can be found in any of that when modern technology does not allow for anyone to be anonymous or hidden?
Instead, Jesus points Christians to fearless vigilance, ceaseless prayer, and the hope of His return. Though having extra food and water and emergency supplies on hand if one is able to do so is wise, let us not become obsessed with something that Jesus did not call believers to do. These are not the days of Joseph. These are the final seconds left before the end of this age wherein Jesus calls His Bride up, casts Satan out and down, and Jacob’s Trouble commences.
Therefore, when we hear these disturbing things in the news and wonder what we ought to do, and feelings of panic or worry flutter up, we must recall that we are commanded by Jesus not to worry, not to fear, but rather, are to be alert and to always be praying. Remember that Jesus said we are to pray that we might be “counted worthy” to escape what is coming on the earth. In the Greek this is a command. This prayer is imperative. And the exact time Jesus wanted us to pray that prayer is now.
Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready! I pray that we are all counted worthy!
Ice Age Farmer – “DR. FRÉDÉRIC LEROY: HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF FOOD PRODUCTION – ICE AGE FARMER BROADCAST,” May 26, 2021, https://www.brighteon.com/fbf53972-2c2b-4023-9ea8-c08f629de9d3Summary from the site: “In this special Ice Age Farmer broadcast, Christian is joined by Dr. Frédéric Leroy, a professor in the field of food science & biotechnology at Vrije Universiteit, to detail what can only be described as an attempted hostile takeover of all human food production. Dr. Leroy outlines with studied precision the UN Food Systems Summit: the agenda to end traditional farming and ranching, the players involved (and the revolving door between big multinational food companies, think tanks/foundations, and policymakers), the movement’s genesis in new age “Gaia” worship, and much, much more.”
