While He is Near

Isaiah 55:6-9 ESV

“Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

In the Last Days

We are living in the last days before the return of Christ. Yet, I don’t know exactly where we are in the end times timetable. No one on this earth does. But, I know we are nearing the end, for the Bible says we, who are followers of Jesus Christ, will know when the time is drawing near by the signs of the times which we see taking place, which we were told about in scripture.

And, too, we are instructed in scripture to be watching and waiting for our Lord’s return, and that the day of the Lord should not overtake us like a thief, because we are children of the light, and not of the darkness.

So, we cannot ignore the reality of what is taking place right before our eyes, and yet many do. Even many Christians just believe whatever they hear on the news or whatever they hear from their church pulpits without even questioning if it is the truth or not. And, so many are deceived.

But, if we open our eyes, and we pray for discernment, and we ask the Lord to show us what is true and what are lies, and if we are walking in fellowship with our Lord to where we hear his voice, and we listen to what he says, and we follow him where he leads us, then he will show us what is happening in our day and time with regard to the fulfillment of prophecy of scripture.

The Beast is Rising

I can tell you that what is described in Revelation 13, for example, is definitely taking place in our day and time, and has probably been going on long before I ever realized it. For there is a beast, a group of Elite, wealthy and powerful people of the world, who are presently taking down sovereign nations, taking over their lands, confiscating their natural resources, killing their people, and bringing those nations under the rule of this beast.

And, the US government serves this group of Elite – the All-Seeing Eye of Horus on our national seal – in going throughout the world doing the dirty work of this beast in bringing the people of the world into subjection to this beast New World Order. That is what our government has been doing in many, many other nations for a very long time. And, now it appears that they are doing the same thing in Venezuela, and in the USA, too.

I have been following these news stories for about fourteen years now, and I can tell you that most all of them follow the same modus operandi. First our government creates some disaster or chaos as a pretext to go into these other nations, like they did to get into Iraq and Afghanistan, and then they pretend as though they are going in with humanitarian aid, but that is a lie. I am not saying they don’t provide any aid, but that this is a false pretext.

For, they are going into these other nations to conquer them and to bring them into subjection to this beast, and to kill all those who will not bow to the beast, in particular to kill Christians who are opposed to Satan’s lies.

For, the US government and military are not in these other nations protecting our freedoms, or rescuing people from tyrannical rulers, but they are there to force compliance with this one-world totalitarian regime and its one-world religion. And, the US government is the world’s worst terrorist, too. So, please know this is coming to America, too, and soon.

The Pretense

All the theatrics that we have seen in our government, especially since Donald Trump took office, but before then, too, are for the very purpose to do what the US has done in all these other nations. And, that is to prove that our government is a mess and that it no longer can function as it has been. And, Donald Trump has played his role well in this. Yet, he is not the one they are against. But, the US government is, and Christians are, too.

If you have paid attention to many of Obama’s speeches over the 8 years he was president, or to many of the pope’s speeches, over the same time period, and continuing the past two years. And, if you have paid attention to the news stories and to Donald Trump’s antics, you will see where this is all headed.

For, they often hide the truth in plain sight. They often say things in such a way to where they tell the truth but they mask it. And, the truth is that they are coming against us, and they want all of us to unify with this one world government and its one world religion or pay the penalty.

So, they will lie about us, falsify information against those they deem their enemies, trump up charges against people, fake uprisings, create chaos, and do everything they can to destroy us in order to discredit us or to shut us up, and if that doesn’t work, they will take us out.

For, the pressure is on, and it is going to get very heated before it is all over. So, pray that your eyes may be opened to the truth so that the darkness does not overtake you, and so that you don’t end up missing the light because you believed the lies, instead.

In the Church

But, all this deception is not just within our government, and with this beast New World Order, but it is within the institutional church, too. For many of our church leaders are wolves in sheep’s clothing who are out to kill and to destroy the church, not to help us walk in holiness and righteousness.

So, they talked the church into uniting with the government via the 501c3 and to turning God’s house of prayer into a marketplace, i.e. into a man-made business, marketed just like any other business.

And, then they altered the gatherings of the church to include the people of the world, unequally yoked together. And, thus they altered the teaching, and the preaching, and the worship services to accommodate the people of the world, and to make church more appealing to them and to their flesh.

And, that necessitated that they also alter the gospel presentation, too, so that it would not offend the world, and in order to make it so that it did not put flesh to death, either, but so, instead, it entertains it and coddles it.

Thus, they have reduced Jesus’ gospel of salvation to forgiveness of sins and the hope of heaven when you die. But, they have removed from the gospel the necessity for us to die with Christ to sin that we might live with Christ for eternity and to his righteousness.

So, not only are many people being fed a cheap substitute for the true gospel, and thus are being led into a trap, and are being given a false hope, but many who were walking with Christ have deserted to this cheap grace gospel to appease them in their sins.

The Call

So, this is the call of God to seek the Lord while he may be found, for time is definitely running out, and it is not on our side. And, it is a call for everyone who is walking in darkness, and not in the light, to forsake his wicked ways and his unrighteous thoughts, and to return to the Lord as his only God and only Lord (master, ruler).

For, if we forsake our sins and we turn to follow Jesus Christ with our lives, he will have compassion on us, and he will forgive our sins, but we must walk in his ways (1 Jn. 1:5-9).

For, Jesus Christ died on that cross that we might die with him to sin and live with him to righteousness (1 Pet. 2:24; 2 Co. 5:15, 21).

And, the scriptures teach us that we must walk (conduct our lives) according to (in agreement with) the Spirit of God, and we must no longer walk (in lifestyle, habit) in the ways of the flesh. For, if we walk according to the flesh, we will die in our sins, not have eternal life with God. But, if by the Spirit we are putting to death the misdeeds of the flesh, then we will have eternal life with God (Lu. 9:23-25; Rom. 8:1-17; Gal. 5:19-21).

For, our human way of thinking and reasoning is not the way God thinks. The path we naturally want to take, as flesh, is not the way of righteousness and holiness, but what brings pleasure to us. So, we need to find out what God’s ways are and follow them, for our lives depend on it.

For, it is not God’s ways to tell us that we don’t have to stop sinning and that we don’t have to obey him, either. Read the whole of the New Testament. Read scriptures in context, and then you will see the truth which will set you free. For, we will reap what we sow. Please, don’t ignore this!

[Rom. 6:1-23; Gal. 6:7-8; Eph. 4:17-24; Eph. 5:3-6; Tit. 2:11-14]

He Gives Purpose

An Original Work / June 9, 2012

“Listen to Me when I’m calling to you.
Obey freely My word.
Follow Me in all of My ways.
Do all that I say.
Hear Me gently whisper to you
My will for your life and future.
Give all of your life and heart to
Follow Me always.”

Repent of your sins and worship Jesus.
He’s your Lord and Master.
He died for your sins so you could
Live with Him today.
He has a plan for your life and
He gives purpose and direction.
He gives meaning to your life,
So follow Him today.

“I love you so much I gave My life for
You to walk in My ways,
Living for Me each day as you
Bow to Me and pray.
Witness for Me of your love for Me and
Of My grace and mercy,
How I died to save you of your
Sins now and always.”

    • My understanding of the beast (the first one mentioned in Revelation 13), is that it is a conglomerate of some type of one world government which will take over (conquer) and rule the entire world for a short period of time, predetermined by God.

      But, then a second beast is mentioned in this passage, too, which has 2 horns, and that is supposed to be the one world religion, or the false church, which is a state church, i.e. the two horns represent government in combination with church. It is false, because it isn’t the body of Christ, but it pretends to be. It is a business, an institution of human making.

      So, there are two beasts, the second one with 2 horns, or in other passages it divides them as the beast and the false prophet (the false church). Either way, one is a totalitarian tyrannical one world order of government, and the second is a one world religion, i.e. the false church which deceives people into thinking it is the true church and thus it leads many people away from the true gospel to follow a gospel of men which saves no one.

      • Thank you for elucidation. I realized there are almost countless theories on this subject, kind of confusing to navigate through. It’s like ministers re groping in darkness. But I believe God reveals it to whoever He will.
