Saturday, November 4, 2017, 11:00 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Just Are You.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Revelation 16:13-15 (NASB).
And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. (“Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”)
Satan, the dragon, has given his power, authority and throne to the beast (#1 in Rev. 13). The beast is a world power, which parallels the 4th kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, as recorded in the book of Daniel (See: Daniel 2:31-45). It has been given the beast to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation (Rev. 13:7). This is the New World Order of our day and time, which is of the Elite, wealthy and powerful of the world, and they are and have been conquering (killing, deceiving, and persecuting) the Lord’s saints, and they have been and are still in the process of overthrowing sovereign governments, via coup d’états, including within the USA, and via mass killings, deception, mainstream (the real fake) news, and via false flag operations, etc. And, the US government serves this shadow government of the Elite, which is de facto government of these United States of America.
There is a second beast (#2 of Rev. 13) which parallels this false prophet, which appears to represent a one world religion, which the current Catholic pope and our former president Obama had been pushing big time, for a long time, but not just them, for there are many preachers and politicians who are on board with unifying all religions together. This has been building for a long time, in other words, including within the confines of the institutional church. Satan has introduced subtle lie after lie into the church, probably over many decades, and the church has slowly adopted these lies as truth. And, now they are moving in for the big “kill” which is to demonize those who still hold to the teachings of Jesus and his NT apostles, with regard to the gospel of our salvation, and to convince the people that the world and all religions need to join hands across the world singing “Kumbaya.” And, all in the name of “peace,” but it is a false peace, so don’t be fooled by it!
The War Being Waged
There is a war being waged against us, the people of this world, including against believers of Jesus Christ. And, it is being fought on at least two levels. One is in the conquering of kingdoms, via actual physical wars, with physical weapons of destruction, through the use of bombs and guns, etc. and via the use of propaganda, deception and manipulations of truth. The other is a spiritual battle which is being waged specifically against the church, the body of Christ, and the weapons being used against us are primarily deception and manipulation, at least here in America, but they are also physical weapons such as bombs and guns, i.e. literal warfare.
In America, which is where I live, we have this false notion, if our eyes have not yet been opened to the truth, that we, the USA, are the “good guys” who are going around the world helping the downtrodden and rescuing them from oppressive governments and terrorism. But, nothing could be further from the truth. The US government is/are the world’s biggest terrorist movement. It is unbelievable how many people outside the US, and some within the US realize this, and yet so many people are stupefied by what they see on TV, and don’t even question if what they are seeing and hearing is actually the truth. They assume it is. I did! Until God opened my eyes.
Basically, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS and the like are all products of the US government which works for the Elite (shadow government), which is the foundation of this New World Order. The United States of America, from its early inception, was to pave the way for this rule of this beast, New World Order. Just look at our national symbols on our dollar bill, and it becomes real obvious. Not only is our government in the US not our real government, but they don’t work like they project that they do, either. For example, there is no right or left. Republican and Democrat are just two sides of the same whole. So, all the fighting and bickering you see between the two sides is all staged, and acted out by clever and talented actors. Our whole political process here is just one big “dog and pony” show. And, it is for the purpose to deceive and to distract the people while we are being taken over.
Within the church here in America there has been a really huge deception, which is war against the saints. For one, much of the body of Christ was convinced that they must partner with the US government via the 501c3 not-for-profit tax exempt status, which then places the government over these corporations, called churches, and the churches themselves are now accountable to the government for what they do. But, the Bible forbids turning God’s house of prayer into a marketplace, and it forbids partnering with the ungodly. As a result, many of these churches have become businesses and are marketing their churches just like any other business, with similar gimmicks, deceptions, lies and manipulations, and with turning the church gatherings into stage productions meant to entertain.
Going along with this is that, in order to draw large crowds of people into their gatherings, these churches have, by necessity, had to dilute the gospel of Jesus Christ to make it more appealing to human flesh. So, teachings on repentance and obedience have gone out the window. Yes, we are under grace, but God’s grace teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives while we await Christ’s return. Freedom in Christ is not freedom to continue in willful addictive sin against God! The New Testament teaches us that we must walk according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh, or we will die in our sins. When we come to faith in Jesus Christ, we crucify sin with its passions and desires so that sin is no longer our master, for Jesus set us free!
Another Great Deception
We are soon coming into the Christmas season, and there will be many Christians celebrating this holiday, many of them also celebrating Santa Claus, who is a false god. Santa Claus is a creation (a lie) of humans, and he is given the same attributes of Almighty God – omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent, i.e. all knowing, ever-present and all powerful. For, he sees you when you are sleeping, he knows when you are awake, and he knows if you have been good or bad. Also, he is able to deliver presents to every home across the world in a single night, and although he is very large, he is able to climb down chimneys in order to enter into people’s homes, like a thief in the night, only to leave gifts. Prior to this, as well, children are brought to numerous humans, perhaps across the world, who are dressed up like Santa, and in order for them to sit on his lap so that he can lie to them and tell them he is going to bring them what they want for Christmas.
On the same day Santa is celebrated as the great god who flies through the night on his sleigh to bring the children of the world presents, Jesus Christ’s birth is purportedly celebrated. Only his birthday is not celebrated like ours. At our birthdays, all the attention goes to us, we don’t pull out baby pictures of ourselves and focus on those, and the gifts go to us. But, on Jesus’ birthday (not his real birthday), we picture him as a helpless baby in a manger who does what? So, Santa upstages Jesus big time in many people’s minds, but especially in the minds of vulnerable children. And, God definitely forbids not only the worship of other gods, which is what this is, but the blending of Christianity with paganism, which is also what this is, so this whole thing is a BIG FAT LIE! I recommend reading this article. See: (1).
He is Coming!
Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the world and to take us, his bride, to be with him forever. And, we don’t know when he is coming back. So, what kind of people ought we to be while we wait for his return? We ought to live godly and holy lives, pleasing to him. He is to be our ONLY Lord (owner-master), our ONLY God whom we worship and to whom we give our honor and praise. We should have no other god besides the One True God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And, the only gospel we should adhere to is the one taught by Jesus and his NT apostles, but not what is just contained in a few select verses, but the whole counsel of God.
Jesus died that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. Faith in Jesus Christ means we are turned from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God so that we can receive forgiveness of sins. It means we die with Christ to sin and we are resurrected with Christ to newness of life, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. And, it means that we now walk, in lifestyle, according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh. We need to take these words from scripture to heart. Time is short!
Just Are You / An Original Work / August 26, 2013
Based off Revelation 15-16
Great and marvelous are Your deeds, O God.
Just and true Your ways, King of all the earth.
Who will not fear You; glorify Your name?
You are righteousness. Praise Your Name!
Just are You, O Lord, our Eternal ONE,
For You judge the earth in Your righteousness.
They have shed the blood of Your righteous ones.
You give their reward. They’re to blame!
Kings of all the earth gather, one accord;
Make haste to engage in a mighty war.
They oppose the Lord and His holy saints.
They serve wickedness, to their shame!
Jesus comes again, to some unforeseen.
Blessed are those who wait for Him at the gate.
They’ll not be ashamed. “Glad” be their refrain.
When He comes again, He’ll remain!
