Sound an Alarm!

Joel 2:1-3 ESV

“Blow a trumpet in Zion;
sound an alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
for the day of the Lord is coming; it is near,
a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains
a great and powerful people;
their like has never been before,
nor will be again after them
through the years of all generations.

“Fire devours before them,
and behind them a flame burns.
The land is like the garden of Eden before them,
but behind them a desolate wilderness,
and nothing escapes them.”

Just in case you haven’t been paying attention, and in case you haven’t noticed what is going on in the world and in the USA, I just want you to know the world is presently in turmoil. An invisible army is coming against us, the people of the world, the Christians of the world, and the citizens of the USA.

Their goal is to take us all down and to bring us all under the rule of the beast (of Revelation), under a one world totalitarian regime, and under a one world religion. And, their agenda is all laid out in a document called “Agenda 21,” which they are following like clockwork.

Just so you know, Donald Trump is not your savior. I believe very much that he is not who he portends to be. Remember that the Scriptures teach us about those who serve Satan and who disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, but who are truly wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Republican and Democrat don’t really exist. They are just two sides of the same whole just playing their parts in the “dog and pony show.” Donald Trump and his opponent are both on the same team playing “good cop” and “bad cop.” They do this kind of stuff all the time. It is all faked.

Most of the news is not real news. Some of it has to be, obviously, but even what we can see with our eyes, and we know exists, has a twist to it, it is orchestrated, and it is scripted. Much of it is totally faked, just like they fake things in Hollywood. So, just because it looks real doesn’t mean it is real.

Although the virus may be real, as viruses do exist, and they do come and go, there is nothing really novel about this virus. It has all the same symptoms as the common flu or of pneumonia or of the common cold. And, the tests are not proven to be valid, and many of them are compromised.

The masks are not proven to save any lives at all, nor are they proven to protect anyone from getting the virus. But what they do is cut off our oxygen levels so that what we are breathing in is not healthy, so this has a greater risk of infecting people than it does of helping anyone.

Keeping us all apart from each other is also not healthy for us. We are made to exist with other people, to talk with people face to face, to share thoughts and beliefs, to witness of Christ’s love, to share a smile or to console someone who is suffering, and to encourage the downtrodden.

The fires out west (USA) fit with Agenda 21, for the goal is to bring us all together in preplanned cities for the purposes of greater control. Flooding is also used as a way of getting people to relocate. The restrictions put on industry with the virus have also worked to put some businesses out of business and to destroy our economy to work their agenda, too.

Many people are awakening to the reality of what is going down in our nation and in the world, but many people are still asleep, too, and they are deceived, and they are buying into the lies, and they are putting their trust and hope in humans rather than in God. And, it will backfire on them.

Joel 2:6-9 ESV

“Before them peoples are in anguish;
all faces grow pale.
Like warriors they charge;
like soldiers they scale the wall.
They march each on his way;
they do not swerve from their paths.
They do not jostle one another;
each marches in his path;
they burst through the weapons
and are not halted.
They leap upon the city,
they run upon the walls,
they climb up into the houses,
they enter through the windows like a thief.”

Many people are in anguish right now because of all that is going on in the world and in our individual nations, some of which is commonly shared with other nations. All of what is happening is upsetting to many people who don’t understand what is going on or why it is happening.

But it all serves a purpose. The purpose of the enemy is to overtake us, to bring us all down to poverty level, except for the super-rich, and to make us all slaves to the beast. And, they have been granted permission to overtake us all, but not in the sense of getting true Christians to bow to the beast.

But they are persecuting Christians throughout the world, putting many of them to death for their walks of faith and for their testimonies for the gospel. And, the persecution of Christians in the USA is heating up, and it is about to get severe in the near future.

“They climb into the houses” is very interesting, for that is exactly what they are doing via technology, spying on us through our computers, through our phones, through our emails and text messages, etc. There really is no such thing as privacy anymore.

But since the Lord is using that same technology to get out his gospel message to the people of the world, some of us must use these tools which we know can be and probably are being compromised. But we are not going to run and hide, for we have to get out the gospel.

Joel 2:12-14 ESV

“Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
and he relents over disaster.
Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,
and leave a blessing behind him,
a grain offering and a drink offering
for the Lord your God?”

In the book of Revelation, which was written to the church, we have the seven letters to the seven churches which represent the whole of the church today. Only two out of the seven had nothing against them. Four of them had things which were positive about them, but they had things against them, too, and only one had nothing positive, but only negative said.

Of all of those who had negative said about them by the Lord, they were called to repent of their sin, or they would face divine judgment of some kind. But then there was a promise of hope to those who overcame their sin by the blood of Jesus via repentance and walks of obedience to the Lord.

After the letters to the seven churches, we have the declarations of judgment. And, who was Revelation written to? The church. And, who was warned that they must repent or face judgment? The church which is not in fellowship with the Lord and is in need to repent or face judgment.

So, logic says, context says, and history says that this judgment is against the church living in adultery, in rebellion, and in idolatry against her Lord. She will be judged during this time of tribulation to come on the earth, and even those saints who are faithful to the Lord will be martyred for their faith in Jesus (See Rev 12-14).

At this point, I believe the judgment is already here and what we are seeing going on in the world and with the church and in our individual nations is God’s judgments against his adulterous church, so I don’t believe there is any way of escaping it now, other than through death.

But the call is still the same. The call is to repent of sin and to obey the Lord. You may not be saved from being persecuted and from having to suffer with the world in poverty, or from not being able to buy or sell because you refuse to take the mark of the beast. But, your life will be saved for eternity, and at this point, that is all that really matters.

For Our Nation

An Original Work / September 11, 2012

Bombs are bursting. Night is falling.
Jesus Christ is gently calling
You to follow Him in all ways.
Trust Him with your life today.
Make Him your Lord and your Savior.
Turn from your sin. Follow Jesus.
He will forgive you of your sin;
Cleanse your heart, made new within.

Men betraying: Our trust fraying.
On our knees to God we’re praying,
Seeking God to give us answers
That are only found in Him.
God is sovereign over all things.
Nothing from His mind escaping.
He has all things under His command,
And will work all for good.

Jesus Christ is gently calling
You to follow Him in all ways.

Men deceiving: we’re believing
In our Lord, and interceding
For our nation and its people
To obey their God today.
He is our hope for our future.
For our wounds He offers suture.
He is all we need for this life.
Trust Him with your life today.
