Kept From The Hour of Trial/Temptation

The other day the Lord gave me something to share with you while I was out on a walk.  I was excited to receive it but by the time I got back home it had slipped my mind again but this morning the Spirit of the Lord brought it back to my remembrance.  Glory to God for His encouragement to all the saints.

This is encouragement from the Lord, not from the mind of this writer.

The Lord spoke specifically to the Churches in the very beginning of the book of Revelation.  Then He speaks specifically to the Churches no more in the book of Revelation.  There are people who try to explain this away but they do it to their own shame.  Either our God is all knowing and all powerful or He is not.  Either He does everything with absolute perfection and clarity of thought or He does not.  Our God does not make mistakes, nor does He forget, nor does He commit oversights.  There is a reason He speaks specifically to the Churches in the beginning of the book of Revelation then you cannot find the Church and instead by Revelation 7 He is speaking specifically to the tribes of Israel, not to the Church....

Here in Revelation 7 we see the tribes of Israel on earth and the Church in heaven:

4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
Praise from the Great Multitude
9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Israel is on earth, the Church is in heaven.

What promises has the Lord made to His Church?  How about this one:

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

So, here is what the Lord spoke to my mind out on that walk about "the hour of temptation" we are to be kept from.  We cannot make stuff up, the Word has to interpret the Word so what exactly does the Word tell us about this 'hour'?


He tells us about an unknown day and hour here:

Matt 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.


but what the Spirit specifically brought to my mind was this:

Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Arguing about the rapture is pointless.  The harpazo/rapture is going to happen in the Lord's time but the rapture is not the only escape we see in the Bible.  So those who have so fervently dedicated their lives to "debunking" any escape have had their entire argument torpedo below the waterline and their ships are sinking.  What will the Church escape?  The unassailable facts presented not from man but by the Word of God are:

1.  Some will escape all that is about to happen:

Luke 21:35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Here ^^ the Lord tells us about an escape and there is no direct link to the rapture so instead of making their case for them it digs them a double grave.  How so?  Not only is the rapture and escape from this world but now we have at least two escapes from this world (if Luke 21:36 is not the rapture...) and this one is an escape from all that is about to happen.  Did the Lord elaborate on what "all that is about to happen" actually is?  Yes, He did.  Its right there in context, in the previous sentence.  All that is about to happen is this:  a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.  What event is coming that is going to be a snare on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth?  You do not have to be a Bible scholar to figure it out.

2.  The Church of Philadelphia will be kept from as the Lord puts it to us "an hour"

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

And once again, the Lord gives us some detail on what this hour is that the Church will be kept from.  What is this hour?  Its right there in the same sentence "which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

Once again what we have is the Church being kept from some event that 1.  will come upon all the world.  2.  to try them/test them.  And once again you do not have to be a Biblical scholar to figure out what this event is.  The Lord goes on to elaborate on this 'hour' here:

Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Does this ^^ help fill in the blanks about this 'hour'?  Sure it does, its exactly what we thought it was and we will be kept from it.

There is in fact a lot of escaping going on in the book of Revelation and elsewhere which must terribly vex those who want to see the Church drug through the tribulation for the sake of their own manmade doctrines.  If it was the Lord's will that the Church was to go through the tribulation, why are the tribes of Israel sealed and the Church is not?

We have already covered Revelation 7 where all the tribes of Israel are called out by name and sealed, what we do not see is the Church called out by name (which did happen in Rev 2-3 but does not happen in Rev 7 or anywhere else in Revelation).  So, the tribes of Israel are sealed in Rev 7 then in Revelation 9 we see this:

1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Problem?  Yes, but only if the Church was still on earth....

We see escape from all, we see the Church kept from the hour of trial, we see the woman escaping the beast in Revelation 12

5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

and the child being "caught up unto God", another escape from the dragon.  Yes, I see alot of escaping here which does cause a vexing problem for those who tell us that God's people get dumped wholesale into the time of Jacob's trouble (not the Church's trouble, but Jacob's trouble).

While we do not see the Church called out by name in Revelation 7, we do see the tribes of Israel called out by name.  Meanwhile back in Revelation 5, right before the seals are opened in Revelation 6 we see elders in heaven described by our perfect all knowing God as being from every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.  Here we have to put our math hat on.  24 elders but how many nations are on earth?  24?  No, alot more than 24.  How many tongues are there on earth?  24?  No, alot more than 24.  So, has our Lord made a mistake?  He does not make mistakes so its for us to figure it out....

The fact is, there will be believers in the tribulation but the million dollar question is which ones?  Obviously all Christians will not enter the tribulation, nor live through all of it.  The fact that the Spirit of the Lord brings back to my remembrance over and over again is the fact that up through this very day, not single living soul that dies in Christ will have entered the tribulation.  Not one...let that sink in.  So much for this 'need' for the Church to be on earth during the time of Jacob's trouble, most of the Church (those who have already died in Christ) have already escaped it!!!

Glory to God.  You should be encouraged today.  Those who see the dark days of the tribulation coming and are already down on their knees in prayer and repentance do not "need" the tribulation to get them where they need to be (in right standing with our Lord).  The tribulation, as with everything else our God does has a purpose and that purpose is not to grind the Church into the ground.  We know that because the Bible does not tell us that.  Tribulation comes from tribulum which is what they used to grind the hard shell off of wheat.  Those who are on their knees in prayer and repentance today do not have a hard shell to thresh off.....its already off.  There are those who will need the tribulum and the tribulation to grind off their hard shell but it is not the Church in right standing with Christ today.

Our God has made us many promises.  Those who inherit the promises are those who receive them by faith and patience.

Heb 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

We can take His promises to the bank.  Through faith and patience we will inherit every single one of them because our God cannot and will not lie.  Millions of Christians have already escaped the tribulation through death in Christ up through this very day.  Many of us will escape the tribulation with our brothers though not necessarily through death.  Our God has promised many escapes to come in the days ahead.  It is for us to be in right standing with our God today.  We are to be a people of prayer and repentance in a world filled with gross darkness.

Our Lord sent this message of hope to you through these fingers that type it out on a keyboard.  There is an escape from all that is about to happen and we are to pray for it

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Spiritual Warfare

This writer has been waging spiritual war for some time now against the powers of darkness arrayed against us.  Why wage spiritual warfare?

1Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: 2But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The spirits that operate against us here, and their human vessels have no problem whatsoever with waging war against us 24 hours a day, 7 days per week and at some point each of us should decide enough is enough and begin dishing out the spiritual warfare to those war against us.  How do we do that?

It starts with binding evil spirits and loosing the angels who serve our Lord Jesus Christ:

Matt 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

We add to that our spiritual armor:

Eph 6:10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Then we add to that individual requests such as this one:

Lord I pray that George Soros will be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.  Your Word says:

Prov 6:16These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Lord, this man is likely guilty of all 7 abominations listed above that he has committed against you and against all humanity.  So, I pray bringing you my faith and your Word that George Soros will be exposed and shut down.  Lord I combine my faith with each and every believer who prays this prayer with me according to your Word which says:

Matt 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

This spiritual warfare aspect of our walk is something the Spirit of the Lord impressed upon me coming into this year.  In case you haven't noticed, 2017 has been a year of warfare and we are only one full month into it.  It is time to start praying about everything.  Everything includes having our skies sprayed day and night to alter the earths weather and atmosphere (which is destroying it).  Why pray about that?  Its destroying our health and the earth at the same time.  Does the Lord have a problem with that?  Yep:

Rev 11:18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small-- and for destroying those who destroy the earth."

How about all the companies (like Starbucks, CNN, Target, Campbells Soup and the list is growing exponentially by the day) that have taken an anti-Christian stand and are proud of it?  They are on the list too to go out of business:

Deut 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.


Lev 20:13 "'If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

We do not wage war as this world does.  We war in the spirit.  Last time I checked there was a growing movement to arrest George Soros and CNN has ratings lower than some of the cartoon networks.  The prayer and the warfare works.  Please join with me in the spirit to do what we were called to do.  We are to pray day and night.  To what end?  To this end:

Luke 11:1And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
2And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
3Give us day by day our daily bread.
4And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

This ^^ , glory to God, is inevitable.  The enemy will lose this war.  What does it matter is you seemingly win all the battles but still lose the war?  We win this war (in the end) and to the victor go the spoils:

2 Thess 2:6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,17Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

Rev 3:21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Notice with me the Word our Lord uses here:  overcome.  What does overcome mean?  Well to start with it implies there is a fight:

to get the better of in a struggle or conflict; conquer; defeat:

We are in a conflict, there is no doubt about that.  We are called to overcome and part of the way we do that is in spiritual warfare.  The Lord has given us everything we need to do what we were called to do (which includes warfare in the spirit):

2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.


Those who wage war are called soldiers.  What has the Spirit of the Lord called us?

2 Tim 2:3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

grace and peace































Jesus Prayed For Escape, You Should Too

The enemy and his servants hate any idea that Christians might escape their new world order so they mock, ridicule and in general attack any thought that our Lord will fulfill His promises to us.  What kind of promises?

Luke 21:36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The Lord does not tell us this ^^ is the rapture.  Maybe it is, maybe it isn't what is important about this promise is 1. He tells us to pray for escape and 2.  He tells us to pray for escape from all that is about to happen.  This flies in the face of all the arguments the enemy tries to throw back at us as to why we 'have to go through the tribulation.'.  Yes, we are told to pray for escape and to do it always.  That's quite 'escapist' isn't it?  Why would our Lord tell us to pray to escape all that is about to happen?  Because our Lord prayed for escape too:

Luke 22:39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

What was our Lord doing here ^^?  He was praying for escape...

The Lord tells us to pray for escape because there will be alot of escaping going on in the last days.  One of the best examples is in Revelation 12:6:

5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

So here ^^ we see two escapes: 1. the woman escapes the worst half of the tribulation where the Lord will take care of her in the wilderness and 2. the child escapes by being "caught up" unto the Lord (sound familiar?).

Want more escaping in Revelation?  Sure, how about:

 Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

When is the "hour of temptation?"  Well, the Lord saw fit to leave that vague.  You aren't going to find another direct reference to it in the Bible but what He does tell us is whatever we will be kept from 1.  comes upon all the world and 2.  is designed to try/test them.  Gee, can you think of any upcoming event in the Bible that fits those criteria?

This world is beginning to tear itself apart.  Mankind is filled with rage and hate at our Lord and His servants (us).  The Lord, in His great wisdom and power has given us this window in time to see how this world despises both Him and us.  Every day some new person or organization or government exposes themselves as an enemy of the cross of Christ.  We see this as for the moment Trump is the pincushion receiving all of the flaming arrows of the enemy that are really directed at us.  Trump is no saint, but it appears he is more for us than against us.  That fact alone absolutely infuriates the demonic hordes that have cast off all restraint in their attacks.

This entire world is in the process of uniting itself against our God and therefore against us.  Things are happening exactly as our God said they would.  When you look around and see how widespread the demonic hatred is, it can be discouraging but be of good cheer.  Our God is all powerful and all knowing.  He likes these seemingly overwhelming odds to show us who is really in control.  One of the best parallels to where we stand now is when Israel was backed up against the red sea with Pharaoh and his hordes bearing down on them with no apparent escape.  But we know how that ended right?  No apparent escape was irrelevant because the Lord had prepared an escape for them they never could have imagined.  So it is with us.  We have His promises.  He told us to watch and pray always for escape:

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Mankind says there is no escape from any of it, but our God says there is an escape from all of it.  Who will you believe?  Our Lord prayed for escape and we should too.

grace and peace

Another Step Closer to the Mark

Brother Armstrong posted another interesting article this evening:

Europe’s Latest Steps to Eliminate Cash Post-Davos

How interesting the timing, September 2017?  Rosh Hashanah is 9/20-9/22 in 2017.  Trump or Clinton it never did matter in the long run.  Our Lord has a time in mind for all things.  He has the  time for what is to happen nailed down to the hour:

13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

We know exactly what is going to happen, but only our God knows when.  From the looks of things, events are marching forward without delay.  There are so many moving pieces moving in so many different directions right now only an omniscient God could figure out the end from the beginning.  In the meantime we can all watch what is happening in awe and reverence.  Our God is perfectly in control and He always has been.  Fearful events are lining up to take place on this earth but we who belong to Him are not to live in fear.  We are to keep our eyes on His face and our eyes attuned to His voice.  The same God that took care of us yesterday and today will take care of all of our tomorrows.

Keep the faith.  Pray for all the brothers.  Please remember me and my family in your prayers as I remember you and yours in mine. 

May the grace and peace of the Lord our God be upon you in abundance.

Mutually Assured Destruction

Mutually assured destruction is a phrase we remember from the cold war, but I think we can now use it for both Trump and the left.  In his first press conference Sean Spicer came out (at the direction of the new President) and roasted the press about crowd size at the inauguration.  So what you might ask?  So, with a laundry list of things to do a mile long, our president's ego just could not let it go.  I have heard many say "well the press deserved it."  Indeed they do, however we are talking about more weighty matters here.  We are talking about what this portends for the future:

Prov 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Anyone on the left who has an ounce of sense will attack this massive hole in Trump's armor until he undoes himself.

When I saw this first press conference I thought, wow, not good.  Then I asked the Lord "Lord, what is he (Sean Spicer) doing?  The answer?  The answer is Trump has a job to do, and that job is not to build bridges.  Well what is it?  Here's the visual the Lord gave me:


^^ This image is Trump's job^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.  What so ironic is our Lord chose a builder to do this job.

Ok, so why is this going to be mutually assured destruction?  Because on the other side of the fence is this:

Link 

and

Link

As time goes on, both sides of this fight are hardening, not softening their positions.  Again, so what?  The Lord hardens those He wants to destroy.  If you are looking at a person and you are not seeing even a shred of love, mercy, forgiveness, humility, they are on the road to destruction.  Can they be saved?  Sure, all things are possible with Almighty God but what did our Lord tell us?  What did He tell us was going to happen?

The second seal:

Rev 6:3When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.

What we are seeing around us is the setup for  Revelation 6:3-4.  Is peace being taken from the earth?  You tell me.  Does the United States look like its at peace right now?  How about Germany?  France?  No, no and no?  Right....

There is a reason our Lord told us to pray "thy kingdom come and thy will be done."  Why?  Because mankind without the Lord God is doomed.  They are doomed to royally screwing up everything they put their hand to.  We need our God and we need Him right now.  This world and its people are going tear each other apart.

We did not choose any of this.  We did not want it, and we do not want it now.  We who are in Christ Jesus are aliens and strangers in this world.  Our God knows our hearts.  He knows those who are vexed just as Lot was

2 Peter 2:7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

Yes, just like Lot  in verses 7-8 we are vexed as we dwell among them.  But, and this is a BIG but, we have a promise in verse 9:


 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

The Lord knows how to deliver us, yes He does.  Glory to God.  Trump is not going to save anyone, his job is to be a wrecking ball.  Salvation and deliverance, the great and precious promises of our Lord God to us are ours in Christ Jesus.  He knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations/trials.

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Again, Glory to God.

May the grace and peace of God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ be with you in abundance.

Babylon, Message Delivery and War

 I have been wanting to write to you for days, but I cannot write unless the Lord gives me something I know is from Him.  Well, an hour or so ago a bulk message delivery was received from the Lord.  What message has the Lord provided?  See below:

1.  Babylon
2. Message Delivery
3.  War

1.   Babylon: I have been asking the Lord about our current situation.  There is so much going on, things can get a bit muddled and confusing.  For example, I asked the Lord about our current situation with Trump and the demonic hatred toward him.  What's going on?  The answer?  Babylon.  Babylon is what the Lord sent through loud and clear.  The hatred we are seeing come through people is demonic in nature, that is what makes now different from what we have seen in previous years.  Their nest has been poked, their apple cart has been tipped over so what we are seeing is not so much human rage and anger, it is demonic rage and anger manifested through human instruments as we can see here:

Link 1

Link 2


We are watching most people in this world give themselves over to demonic spirits because they firmly reject the truth which is Jesus Christ, the Word of God.  When we see this vile filth which does not have to be coming from this worlds so called 'stars' it could just as easily be coming from your next door neighbor, we have to remember what we are up against.  We are not at war with the carnal instruments around us (the people), we are at war with the spirits working through them:

Eph 6:12 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We will finish this thought in 3.  War, but to finish the thought of what is going on around us, Babylon is still on the move.  We are seeing it everywhere.  The spirit of Babylon is the spirit of anti-Christ working around the world against our Lord and His Kingdom which manifests itself on this earth through us.  Babylon is what we are at war with.  The governments of this world, the media, and unfortunately most people have all aligned themselves with Babylon.

Babylon is the reason there has been such an emphasis on mixing races and racism in general.  The enemy is almost frantic trying to put back together his modern day tower of Babel.  Why?  The enemy knows the only hope he has to even try to dent a piece of our Lord's armor is this:

Genesis 11:6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.


If the enemy cannot get the people united against our Lord, he knows he is even more finished than he already is against an all powerful, all knowing God.  As things stand, the world is uniting against us, just as the Lord told us it would.  They are busy with their futile work, trying to build their one world order that will be wiped away when our Lord decides its time to lift his pinky finger against them.

Babylon is also working toward its war against Israel.  We can see for example our brothers in Russia who have done such a good job making war against the western backed forces of terrorism in the Middle East, are making the fatal mistake of aligning themselves against Israel via the UN vote recently in favor of the Palestinians.  It will be interesting to see how Trump deals with Russia now that we are seeing this fault line developing over the cup of trembling:

Zech 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem

 2.  Message Delivery:  It appears the Lord still uses angels to deliver His messages to us and those angels still have to fight their way to us just as they did here:

Daniel 10:12Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. 14Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”

Why doesn't the Lord just speak directly to us by His Spirit?  Well, He does, sometimes, other times He sends His message to us via the angels.  Why?  Thats what they were created for (at least in part) and He expects them to do their job:

Job 33:23 Yet if there is an angel at their side, a messenger, one out of a thousand, sent to tell them how to be upright,

Revelation 1:1

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John,

So this explains why you have to wait for your answers so often...Just be patient, your answer is on the way.

3.  War:  So, this spirits are obviously at war with us.  They do not take days off.  They do not take lunch breaks, no, they are either attacking us or planning to attack us 24/7, 365 days a year.  So what?  So its time to bring the fight back to them.  How so?  Loosing and Binding, prayer and the armor of God.  Loose holy spirits, bind evil spirits, put on your armor and pray.

18Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Eph 6: The Full Armor of God
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Pray Continually

18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

When you start to understand what these spirits are doing to you and your family and all the brothers through every means available, you will get angry enough to begin to take the fight back to them.  This war is real, the casualties are real, the pain is real and alot of it is caused by these spirits who hate us and rage against us with a hatred we will likely never fully understand.  Its time to stop just passively taking it from them and start dishing the pain back out to them.  The deserve every wound we can inflict on them, they show no mercy and take no prisoners.

And finally, remember this:

2 Cor 10 :1Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: 2But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

We do not wage war the way this world does.  Voting and political activism are a complete waste of time and energy.  If we want to make a difference we will do what our God told us to do in His Word.  Pray, put on the full armor of God, bind, and loose.

Thanks be to God.  Keep the faith.  Pray and war in the spirit as we were taught to by our Lord and Savior.  Your prayers are heard and answers are on the way.  Be patient.

May the grace and peace of God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ be with you in abundance.

The Trump Speedbump

It truly was a miracle that Trump was elected given how far gone this world is.  How long he will be around with the venom dripping off the fangs of the people around us, only the Lord knows.  What we do know is this, the enemy has been uncovered.  All of the people coming out of the woodwork, absolutely losing their minds over the Trump election has spotlighted for us what we are up against.

As it was written here before, this writer does not support Trump (or any worldly politician for that matter) but what it is that they hate in Trump is us.  When they look at Trump they see conservative, and when they see conservative they see Christian and that is what they convulse over.  The demonic hatred we see around us has been unmasked and that hatred is a hatred for us.  What this world wants is its satanic communist world order.  What they want is a world were one can "do what thou wilt" in their own global satanic playground without the hassle of dealing with cosmic killjoys like the Creator and His servants (us). 

So what is Trump?  He is a historical speedbump on the way into the book of Revelation.  Why a speedbump?  Because things were moving a little bit too fast (but not by much) and a little tiny restraint was needed to put the brakes on the timeline so at the perfect time, what was written will come to pass.

Ecc 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:


 So what is happening right now?  Before Trump has even taken office, the left, the liberal, the "do what thou wilt" crowd is at combat readiness to erase this historical footnote on the way to their satanic order.  Do you ever find it interesting that the liberal is called the left?  Consider:

Matt 25:31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

^^ This is just an interesting footnote as all politicians are wicked but I am not talking about the leaders here, I am talking about the sheep and the goats and where they align themselves here on earth.

Anyhow back on track to what the Lord just impressed upon this writer.  What Trump has done is energize the demonic hordes into frenetic action.  They thought they were on a greased slide into their netherworld on earth and then this speedbump showed up and now we get to see the aftermath.  Now we can see with crystal clarity the hatred these people have for us.  Now we can see the enemy, those who would turn us in during the tribulation are those living right beside us and across the street.  Now it is plain as day that the good (those who follow Christ) are this world's "racist, homophobe, islamophobe, fill-in-the-blankphobe, etc.  How so?  Read your Bible.  Our God is very 'intolerant' of many things, all of which this world wants in their demonic desperation.  If it is anti-Christ, they want it, and they will get it!

We know what is coming.  This world has a 'savior' coming but the Word of the Lord calls him the anti-Christ and this world will fawn over him.  He will give them everything they are asking for and they will love him for it.  The fly in their ointment isn't trump, nor is it us, the Christian per se but it is our Master, the Lord God Almighty who rules and reigns and has a day in store for all the unrighteous.  He has a day in store for all those who refuse to love the truth and instead find their pleasure in wickedness.

They will get what they want but they will get in a world filled with the most inhuman slaughter this world has ever seen and that is saying alot.  They will get what they want, but they will get it with all the green grass burnt up, the earth plagued and poisoned and bombarded from above and splitting asunder from below.  Yes, our Lord has a day in store for this world and all its unrighteousness. 

The people who will gleefully rejoice when the speed bump is removed from their path should be a little more circumspect as a divine sledgehammer is coming for their forehead.  The Lord our God predicted all of this thousands of years ago.  We get a foretaste of it here with the two witnesses:

Rev 11:7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

Trump wont last forever, we know that.  When they demonic hordes around us get what they want, they will rejoice  just like they will rejoice when the two witnesses are temporarily incapacitated, little knowing what fate awaits them in the days ahead.

Are we to condemn all these people?  No, condemning is our Lord's job.  We are to do our Father's will as we come across one in a city and two in a county that He has His loving eye on to save in these dark days.  His Spirit will lead us to these people to say what He wants to say to them through us to woo them into the kingdom, just as He lovingly is saving us, day by day.  A remnant will be saved in the last days just as a remnant has always been saved throughout history.

 Matt 7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 It has always been a few that find it.

grace and peace

An Encouraging Word, The Escape

As we watch this world go from bad to worse (just as our Lord told us it would), we can be encouraged.  Our Lord told us that there is an escape from all that is about to happen:

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The Lord makes no mention of harpazo or rapture here ^^ so why should we?  What an excellent way to completely disarm and debunk all of the rapture deniers.  We are not talking about the rapture here.  We are not talking about the rapture and we are talking about escape.  Yes, there is an escape from all that is about to happen and we are to pray for it. 

Want some more encouragement?

The Lord brought to my attention the fact that every single believer that has died in Christ up to this very moment has escaped all that is about to happen.  That's right, all of them, 100%.  Who else escaped all that was about to happen?  Noah and Lot both escaped:

Luke 17:26And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed
And who else is going to escape?  Both the woman and the child:

1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Notice what happens here ^^ the male child is "caught up" (sound familiar?) to God and the woman flees to the wilderness where she escapes from/is kept/protected from the dragon for half of the tribulation!

And oh yea, as an afterthought, the harpazo of the Church will be an escape as well but we don't have to even mention it to make our point.

What's the point?  There is alot of escaping going on, and we are told to pray for escape.  If you want to wholesale destroy the arguments against escape, don't even mention the rapture.  Tell the deniers the argument has nothing to do with the rapture and everything to do with escape and watch as the blood drains out of their face.  All of their canned arguments go swirling down the drain where they belong.

Praying for escape was not a suggestion, it was a command

36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Praying for escape is an act of obedience.  Why should we always be praying for escape?  Because our God in His infinite wisdom purposefully concealed when the escape is going to happen.  Do you know why there is so much debate about (among other things) the rapture?  Because our Lord hid the timing, on purpose which has resulted in endless fruitless debate.  So why debate it?  Why not stand on the facts.  Facts?  Yea, facts like there will be an escape from all that is about to happen and we were commanded to pray for it. 

Not everyone is going to go through the tribulation.  I know there are people out there who swear up and down that Christians must go through it but their arguments fall apart all over the place.  What happened to the millions who have died in Christ up through today, not one of them went through the tribulation, why not?  If we have to go through it, prove it!  All of our brothers and sisters who died in Christ did not go through it and many of us will not go through it either.  Thanks be to God. 

He told us to pray always for our escape from all that is about to happen.  It was not a suggestion, it was a command.  Glory to God, there is an escape from this wicked world that is getting worse by the day.  Glory to God, He told us to pray for that escape.

May the grace and peace of God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ be with you
