Saturday, October 17, 2015, 6:30 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “You Are Loving and Forgiving.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Isaiah 60:1-3 (NASB).
“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
“For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
“Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
In context, God judged his adulterous people for the shedding of innocent blood, for speaking lies, for lack of integrity, for wicked utterances, for lack of concern for justice, and for giving birth to evil, such as a poisonous viper would hatch her own eggs. They were full of deceit, evil deeds, and “acts of violence” were in their hands. Their feet rushed into sin. Their thoughts were evil. “Ruin and destruction” marked their ways. They were crooked, wicked, and were walking in darkness. Their many sins testified against them, and God did not listen to their prayers, for their sins had separated them from their God. They were rebellious and treacherous against their Lord. They turned their backs on God. They encouraged oppression and revolution, so justice, truth and righteousness were scarce. [See: Isaiah 59 NIV’84.]
The past two days, the Lord Jesus has contrasted, for me, this description of God’s people (his nation at that time) with his adulterous and idolatrous church here in America and with their business partner, the US government, which is a driving force of the New World Order. The USA is under the judgment of Almighty God for many of the same reasons as was God’s people of Isaiah’s day, as is described above. Not just the unsaved of this nation prefer to walk in darkness, but many who profess to know Jesus as Savior of their lives, or who may truly be saved, but have since fallen back into sin, are walking in darkness instead of in the light of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and in the light of his Word and of the gospel of our salvation. The vast majority of today’s church in America has gone the way of the world, has bought into Satan’s lies, has submitted to a false grace (diluted) gospel, and instead of confronting the world with their sin and calling them to repent and to obey God, they are entertaining them and are trying to make them feel good, and comfortable in their sin.
This darkness, though, is not just sinful thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. It is a veil of deception which is of Satan which is covering the eyes of many who call themselves Christians so that they cannot see the light of truth. For example, the Lord was speaking to me about Pope Francis, and about how he is operating under this same veil of deception. His judgment and discernment are not of his own making. There is a chief authority to which he submits, and of which he is a servant and a messenger, and that is the authority of the New World Order, which is comprised of the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations, et al. The Lord was showing me today these global leaders marching in solidarity with one another as this thick darkness covering the earth.
“In 1973, David Rockefeller asked Zbigniew Brzezinski to put together an organization of the top political, and business leaders from around the World. He called this group the Trilateral Commission (TC).” “Brzezinski declared that, ‘National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept’, and that ‘Marxism represents a further vital, and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man, and a victory of reason over belief…’” http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_globalelite24.htm
“According to Marxist analysis, class conflict within capitalism arises due to intensifying contradictions between highly productive mechanized and socialized production performed by the proletariat, and private ownership and appropriation of the surplus product in the form of surplus value (profit) by a small minority of private owners called the bourgeoisie. As the contradiction becomes apparent to the proletariat, social unrest between the two antagonistic classes intensifies, culminating in a social revolution.” “In the words of Alexander Berkman, ‘social revolution means the reorganization of the industrial, economic life of the country and consequently also of the entire structure of society.’” “The eventual long-term outcome of this revolution would be the establishment of socialism” (Wikipedia).
Socialism – “a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies” (M-W Dictionary).
If you have listened to any of the Pope’s speeches, of late, you must see that this is his agenda, as well, as it is the agenda of Obama, who is also a servant and messenger of this New World Order “Beast.” The message is one of Marxism or Communism, of bringing the world together under one head (authority), and of the dissolution of sovereign nations, capitalism, private property, and freedom of speech, etc. In other words, this is about the take down of America. It is also about the take down of the gospel of Jesus Christ and of his true church, i.e. the goal is to bring all religions together under one authority, too, and so both Obama and the Pope have been preaching a social gospel based in good deeds, and one that demonizes independent thinking and beliefs, and calls for the cessation of all which divides us as the people of the world. There is much teaching, too, about being one with nature and treating the trees as though they are our brothers, etc.
This New World Order has been going throughout the world overtaking sovereign nations, confiscating property not their own, stealing sovereign nations’ natural resources, killing at will, destroying private property, causing (creating) chaos, and then invading these nations under the guise of trying to bring resolution to the problems they first created, which they created so that they would have the opportunity to come in with a preplanned resolution, which is to force independent governments and people to submit (bow to) the New World Order “Beast” or pay the consequences. Now, they are following the same M.O. inside the USA, and Obama and Pope Francis are forcefully advancing with the N.W.O.’s messages of religious tolerance, of the need to do away with religious “extremism,” i.e. evangelical Christianity, and of the need for all the people of the world to unite as one body. And, many within our nation, and within the church (even the non-Catholic church), are considering joining the Pope (N.W.O.), and are buying into his feel-good messages (of hopelessness).
Because the vast majority of America’s churches have partnered with the US government, and because the government serves as a vessel of the New World Order in doing their bidding, and because the leadership of these churches, for the most part, encourages government worship (vow of fidelity to the government), the church is culpable for the atrocities committed by our government acting on behalf of this New World Order “Beast.”
Because the church has invited the government into the church in the position of head in place of Christ, and they have embraced the ways of the world, and have thus shoved the Holy Spirit out of many of their churches, and because they have diluted the gospel to make it more socially acceptable, many who call themselves Christians are living no different from those who make no profession of faith in Jesus Christ at all. They may go through the motions of religious activity, but it is empty, for they are still following after their own sinful flesh. And, many of them have already deserted or are contemplating desertion of the true gospel, i.e. they are torn between two gospels and two depictions of God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and so they are having to make the choice which one they will give their loyalties to. In other words, they have divided hearts, because they know the truth, but their flesh favors the gospel of grace which gives license to lasciviousness.
God told his people that, “Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion” (v. 10). God’s purpose, throughout biblical history, in judging his people was nearly always to bring them to their knees in repentance so that he could revive, renew and restore them to fellowship with him. His purpose has not changed. The book of Isaiah speaks much of the Messianic age, and this is one of those passages. And, it speaks much of God’s judgment on his idolatrous Zion (the church) at the end of time prior to Christ’s return. As well, the book of Revelation is written to the church, and it begins with letters to the churches in which many of them were confronted with their sins, were called upon to repent, were warned of judgment if they did not repent, but were promised restoration and eternal rewards for those who overcame sin, or persecution, by the blood of Jesus Christ and through their faith in him.
The Lord is calling his complacent, adulterous, idolatrous church, which has divided hearts, to get up from their place of apathy and spiritual slumber and to see Jesus Christ and the light of his truth, and to follow it, and to let the light of Christ and his gospel shine forth from their lives into the lives of others. He is also calling his church, which has come under his judgment, and is experiencing or will soon experience a time of great difficulty, to rise from her sorrow and depressed state, and to now let the light of Christ and of his salvation to shine forth so that others can be saved before our Lord returns. He is also calling his church to come out from underneath this veil of deception and false grace gospel and to enter into his light (his truth), which teaches that Jesus died that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; that we might no longer live for ourselves, but for him who gave himself up for us; that he died that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us who walk no longer after the flesh, but who conduct our lives according to the Spirit.
The result will be that people will come to faith in Jesus Christ from all over the world. Amen! Our God promises, through judgment, to get his church to wake up from her slumber and to let the light of Christ shine through our lives so that others can be saved. He promises over and over again to restore the contrite in heart who have repented of their wicked ways and to renew them in their walks of faith with him. God disciplines (punishes, rebukes, scourges) those he loves, just like a loving parent disciplines his or her children. And, he does so that we might share in his holiness. “To those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness” (See: Heb. 12:3-11).
You are Loving and Forgiving / An Original Work / February 19, 2012
Based off Psalm 86
You are loving and forgiving,
Jesus, Savior, King of kings.
You provided our redemption.
By Your blood You set us free.
You are gracious; full of mercy.
No deeds can compare with Yours.
Great are You; there is none like You.
Glory be to Your name.
Teach me Your way, and I’ll walk in it.
O Lord, I will walk in Your truth.
May I not have a heart divided,
That Your name I give honor to.
I will praise You, O Lord, my Savior,
For great is Your love toward me.
You have delivered me from my sins.
Your grace has pardoned me.
You, O Lord, are full of compassion,
Slow to anger, bounteous in love;
Faithful to fulfill all You promise;
Glory be to Your name above.
Hear, O Lord, and answer Your servant.
You are my God. I trust in You.
Turn to me and grant Your strength to me.
You are my comforter.
