The Heavens and The Earth Testify

Here is something else that happened during the recent blood moon and solar eclipse, a witness against America and the nations.  Mankind in its arrogance thinks it can bribe, threaten, lie, cheat and steal its way out of whatever situation it finds itself in.  After all, look at all of the murder, theft and corruption they have gotten away with (seemingly) over the years.  There are many not so small problems with that starting with what America just witnessed, another blood moon and total solar eclipse.

What has the Lord God said?

Deut 30:19This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 

Job 20:27 "The heavens will reveal his iniquity, And the earth will rise up against him.

Psalm 89:37 it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky."

What is so wonderful, so encouraging about the Word of the Lord above?  Good luck trying to bribe, threaten, lie, cheat or steal their way out of the witness of the earth, the moon or sun against the wickedness on this earth.  America has been marked, just as other nations have been marked in the past by the witness of the sun and moon above.  Even now, people have forgotten what happened just days ago.  "Nothing happened!" they say just as they said nothing happened during and after the blood moons and eclipse of 2014-2015.  How shortsighted.  Apparently they have not noticed the world unraveling around them.

What a difference two to three years make!  2-3 years ago Europe was not an above ground sewer, now it is.  2-3 years ago, Europe was not lost to Islam, now it is.  "oh brother D, isn't that a bit of an overstatement?"  No its not, Europe is lost.  2-3 years ago under the reign of Barak Hussein, there was seemingly peace in America (other than the spree of mass shootings, rampant immorality and the promotion of every form of vile wickedness known to man).  Now look at it.  And before anyone blames Trump for this, there is no way Trump makes it into the presidency without the over reach and miscalculations of the wicked in America.  They thought they had their new world satanic order in the bag but they found out, they were wrong.

Is the world still headed in the same direction as it was under Barack Hussein?  Yes, but in the process the Lord God has seen fit to shine a spotlight on the outright lies, fraud, corruption, murder etc of the political establishment and the media.  He has seen fit to expose just how rotten the systems of this world are before He allows them to move forward another inch.  Why expose them?  So people (you and me) are without excuse.  The wicked power that runs this world has been exposed and sadly many people (if not most) devour the lies as if they were truth.  But don't accept this writer's words, what did the Lord God say?

2 Thess 2:10And 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.

They received not the love of the truth, instead they received the love of lies.  And?  And the heavens and the earth testify against this wicked generation.  I have read some people hedging and hawing "well God is warning but that doesn't mean He has to do anything."  Really?  Does the Lord God warn without acting on His warnings?  It does not appear that way from either current events or Biblical history.  No, when the Lord God warns, the Lord God acts, period.  Both the Bible and current events prove this point abundantly.

So now what?  America has been warned.  America has been marked from east to west.



In 7 years, America will be marked again from south to north

What does this mean?  It means that if America remains on the path its on right now, the judgement stored up for it will be delivered.  When?  How?  When and how are reserved for the Lord alone.  He always gives us the "what."  The Bible is filled from front to back with "what."  What do you mean brother?  He tells us exactly "what is going to happen."  When and how are reserved for Him apart from the few exceptions where He gives very explicit timing details like this:

Revelation 11:3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will ...
And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy
for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." ...                    

The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by
God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. ...

This is no joke and no false alarm.  The Lord impressed on this writer the number 18 and its significance with bad things happening.  This impression came from personal observations that the Spirit highlighted from the recent past.  The understanding this taken from this is it is likely tied to 2018 by which time all of the blood moons and eclipses will be long since forgotten (by mankind).  What will not be forgotten will be the consequences for failure to repent.  Play time is over.

This writer's spirit is heavily weighed down as this is being written.  Something is very very wrong and something (not good) is absolutely on the way.  But you don't need a nobody like this writer to tell you that.  A quick look around is all the proof you need to tell you where this is all headed.  Further proof is found in the pages of your Bible which tells you exactly what is going to happen.

This world is not going to repent, but what about you (I include myself in "you")?  This is not written to the world nor does the world read this blog, but you do.  The Spirit of the Lord is calling to us.  Repent, fast, pray, stay in the Word.  This world is sleepwalking into destruction but you are not.  You are always watching and always praying exactly as you have been instructed to:

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

2017 Jubilee? Star of Bethlehem?

This brother (see the video link end of sentence) does a good job of piecing together more evidence that we need to be watching and ready -video here.

He doesn't even go into the eclipse, add that into the mix and the signs are overwhelming.  And if these signs aren't enough, I have now been given two separate personal signs over the past 30 days to be watching and ready for the days ahead.  That has never happened before.

In the intelligence world, this would be called a nexus.  Its where everything comes together and screams "look here!"  Have there been many false alarms in the past?  Yep.  Does that mean we throw our hands up in the air and go to sleep like the world?  Nope.  This is the most impressive set of signs and signal packed into the shortest period of time ever and I will be the first to admit this one crept up on me unaware.  In the Lord's mercy, you and I both are aware now.  What has elevated my interest even more are the two subtle personal signs given to me, telling me to get ready.  He knows us personally and He knows how to get our attention as individuals. 

Get our attention for what?  I don't know but the most obvious guess would be the secret return of the Lord Jesus Christ:

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Let the mockers mock.  If neither the angels in heaven nor the Son of God knows this day and hour, then yes, its a secret and we'll see how much mocking is going on when the mockers are found not watching:

33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Matt 25:9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Rev 3:3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

I don't know how many different ways He has to say it yet many still refuse to watch, still mock the secret coming of the Lord when He Himself told us its a secret.

Does this nexus in time mean the Lord's secret coming is at hand? I do not know.  We are being signed and signaled in every possible way to plug the smelling salts into our nose for the weeks ahead, drink our coffee and slap ourselves across the face to maintain maximum alertness.  This writer has no idea what exactly is going to happen but I am absolutely positively 100% certain we are being warned about the days ahead.  Time will tell what the Lord has in mind, its our job to be watching and ready when He does whatever He has in mind to do.  I have been warned.  You have been warned.  Fast, pray, stay in the Word and let's see what the Lord God is about to do.

Another Source Pointing to 2018

Brother Blitz has done a good job with this video :




Saturday, August 19, 2017

Get Ready For 2018?

The Lord has given this writer 3 different sources of warning one for the number "18" and two for the year 2018.  2 sources were external (2018), one was internal (18).  Because this time, this writer has been impressed, in person by the Spirit of the Lord about "18" I am passing the warning on to you.  This warning just happens (not coincidentally) to coincide with what is being called the great American eclipse of 2017.  This warning also coincides with multiple warnings from the Lord that current American troubles are linked both to 1.  America turning away from the Lord and 2. removing supply and support from Israel (per Isaiah 3:1).  Both 1, and 2 are directly linked to prophetic fulfillment of Luke 21:20 and everything else written in the book of Revelation.

As you may know by now the Lord is very stingy when it comes to information having to do with time or timing.  What is going to happen?  No idea, but judging from the recent blood moon and coming solar eclipse (which are combined with the blood moons and eclipse of 2014-2015, and the Shemitah and Jubilee cycle warnings) its highly likely to be very bad for this world. 

Another pertinent fact relating to timing, the Lord's renewed emphasis with this writer on fasting, praying and staying in the Word that began 3-4 weeks ago.  We have hit a nexus in time where the Lord is most certainly warning and encouraging us who believe to be doing what we already know we should be doing.  We should be watching and ready for whatever it is the Lord has in mind for the days ahead, and especially something to do with "18" which may end up being 2018.

Another Blood Moon and a Total Solar Eclipse Part 2

Some rabbis say that the blood moons are bad signs for Israel and solar eclipses mean bad news for the world.  Lets think about this for a moment with a little more depth and clarity than this world.  With the world, if you get a sign today and tomorrow nothing happens, it was a bogus sign.  Same thing with sin and everything else.  If they sin, and are not struck by lightning the next day, there is no consequence for sin.  I think we know better than that.  Our God is patient and He works out His blessings, and His judgements, curses and wrath over time.

So what?  So we had a lunar tetrad in 2014-2015 along with a full solar eclipse and here we are in 2017 starting to feel it.  Now on top of the 2014-2015 tetrad we get another blood moon and another full solar eclipse.  Meaning what?  Back to where we started, bad things for Israel, bad things for America, bad things for this world.  If its not obvious yet, the globalist establishment wants America taken out of the way.  What happens when America is taken out of the way?  All eyes on Israel.  Which country more than any other has been used to bless and secure Israel?  America.  America has been Israel's defense and support.  In order to bring in their 'new world order' globalist satanic paradise they need America taken out of the way, which is really working out the Lord's plan to take America out of the way.  To what end?  What happens when a man or a nation decides to go their own way and forget about the Lord God?  The Lord takes away their supply and support:

Isaiah 3:1 See now, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, is about to take from Jerusalem and Judah both supply and support: all supplies of food and all supplies of water,

Why does the Lord take away both supply and support?  To get their attention.  He eventually takes all supply and all support so the only possible supply and support left is Him.  Some people have to be crushed as the trebulum crushes wheat.  So, this world (and specifically Israel) will be crushed by the tribulation.  Supply and support will be taken away from Israel so there is only one possible place left to turn for help: Yahweh Jehovah-our Father in heaven.

As things stand now, Israel trusts in America's support.  Israel trusts in the IDF, but do they trust in the One who has really provided their supply and support.  Will they turn to Him and trust Him?  Yes, eventually, when He is all they have left:

Ez 38:17 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. 18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

So what is happening to America is really not about America, its about Israel.  America is not the center of the world or the center of the end times, Israel is.  So as you see this time of trouble develop for America, know that these signs in the heavens were and are potent and they are delivering what they promised to deliver: trouble for the nations and trouble for Israel.

Another Blood Moon and a Total Solar Eclipse

Remember the lunar tetrad (blood moons) and the solar eclipse in 2014-2015?  Well, the world moved on dismissing these signs in the heavens as nonsense.  Guess what, we just had another blood moon and another solar eclipse is coming...

Now, to address that "nothing happened" issue.  Go look at a monthly stock chart for the DJI (Dow Jones) or SPX  (S&P500) in October 2014, August-September 2015 and January-February 2016 and get back to me on "nothing happened."  And the stock hits were the very least of the problems that came with these blood moons, look at the world right now compared to 2014-2015.  Europe has been transformed into a sewage dump, literally, human waste all over the streets throughout Europe thanks to the establishment's Islamic invasion.  Look at the United States today compared to 2014-2015, its become a war zone in places (Charlottesville, VA) comes to mind, and is about to boil over everywhere else. 

The second seal opened by the Lord Jesus Christ is this:

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.

Take a look around, what are people ready to do?  Kill each other..

Yes, I'm sorry I cannot buy the "nothing happened" bit.  A whole heck of a lot happened.  If it were not bad enough, we just had another blood moon and are about to get another solar eclipse.  If this world is about to get another dose of "nothing" its been getting since 2014-2015, then brace your seat belts, the ride is about to get apocalyptic.

The War on Truth

What we hear non-stop out of republicans, democrats and the media are lies.  What they all have in common is they are serial liars.  The fact that politicians and the media are serial liars is not news.  The news is the common man accepting these liars and adopting the lie as truth.  In our world, the truth is the enemy and anyone who steps up to tell the truth becomes an enemy of humanity.  Surprised?  We shouldn't be.  The Lord Jesus Christ came down from heaven taking the form of mortal man and He came telling the truth.  What did the world do to Him?  Do we find it strange that the world wants to do the same to us?

One day its lies about Russia, then its lies about Korea, then its lies about Charlottesville, tomorrow it will be lies about something else.  So what?  Ready for the good news?  Our God foretold this thousands of years ago and He has a plan to deal with it:

2 Thess 2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 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.

and here:

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The war on truth is the war on Christ being waged in this world.  Don't forget who we are fighting against, its not the liars at CNN or the senate or the house of representatives, nope.  Its right here:

Eph 6:12 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.

Unfortunately for those waging this war against the truth, there are some unfortunate consequences that come with it.  Consequences like the snare:


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.

and consequences like the seals, vials, woes etc found in the book of Revelation.

The good news is our God told us about this, expected this, foretold this thousands of years ago.  He is not surprised, shocked, dismayed at any of it.  So, do not be troubled our God has a plan.  He has a plan for us and a plan for them.  The people who should be shocked and dismayed are those whose hope is in this world.  They should be plenty worried because, yes, its falling apart. 

What are we to do in dark days such as these?  The same 3 things:  fast, pray, stay in the Word.  Do these things and keep your ears open to the gentle voice of the Spirit.  When He tugs at your spirit, follow in that direction. 

Be encouraged, your God is with you to stand by you and fight for you in the day of battle.

This Word is just as much for us today as it ever was for Israel:

Deut 20:1When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. 2When you are about to go into battle, the priest shall come forward and address the army. 3He shall say: “Hear, Israel: Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not panic or be terrified by them. 4For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

What is Happening to America?

So much for the false prophets who told us "America's best days are ahead" now that Trump will "make America great again."  Instead of being made great, America is being brought to her knees.  Why?  Lets see if this sounds familiar:

Neh 9:26But they were disobedient and rebelled against you; they turned their backs on your law. They killed your prophets, who had warned them in order to turn them back to you; they committed awful blasphemies. 27So you delivered them into the hands of their enemies, who oppressed them. But when they were oppressed they cried out to you. From heaven you heard them, and in your great compassion you gave them deliverers, who rescued them from the hand of their enemies.
28But as soon as they were at rest, they again did what was evil in your sight. Then you abandoned them to the hand of their enemies so that they ruled over them. And when they cried out to you again, you heard from heaven, and in your compassion you delivered them time after time.
29You warned them in order to turn them back to your law, but they became arrogant and disobeyed your commands. They sinned against your ordinances, of which you said, ‘The person who obeys them will live by them.’ Stubbornly they turned their backs on you, became stiff-necked and refused to listen. 30For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighboring peoples. 31But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.
32“Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes—the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today. 33In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly. 34Our kings, our leaders, our priests and our ancestors did not follow your law; they did not pay attention to your commands or the statutes you warned them to keep. 35 Even while they were in their kingdom, enjoying your great goodness to them in the spacious and fertile land you gave them, they did not serve you or turn from their evil ways.

What does the Lord do to His people when they defy Him?  He gives them over into the hands of their enemies.  Its one of His signature judgements.  Take a look at what is happening in the world today, America is managing to make an enemy of the entire world!  That's right, even former allies are having a hard time stomaching America in 2017.  Why is the entire world in the process of turning against America?  Look no further than America's relationship (or lack thereof) with the Almighty.  If its shedding blood, some kind of sexual perversion or associated filth, or corruption, we are for it.  If its the rule of law, righteousness, holiness, goodness, we are against it. 

So the world is turning against the United States and we know why this is happening (re-read Nehemiah 9:26-35 above for that).  But the question remains, to what end?  Who is the one guarantor of Israel's peace and security in the world today?  The United States.  What would happen if the United States were taken out of the way?  This:

Luke 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.

and eventually this:

Rev 16:16Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
17The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds,a fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.

While the people of the world sleepwalk through their day to day routine, they do not see the trap set for them.

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

Psalm 2:1Why do the nations conspirea
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3“Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9You will break them with a rod of ironb ;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

This ^^ is exactly what we are seeing.  Are the nations conspiring and the people plotting in vain?  Yep.  Is the entire world saying "Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”  You bet they are.  This world has made its decision to say yes to Islam and no to Christianity.  And the net result will be?

4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath

Yes, the days are getting dark with the whole world turning against our Lord Jesus Christ and by extension us, His children.  But does "He laughs and scoffs at them" then "terrifies them in His anger and wrath" sound like our God is troubled by these events?  Nope.

The deeper this world digs its heels in, the harder they will be pounded:

Rev 11:1I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. 3And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”a 5If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. 6They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.

When I look around at how nauseatingly vile this world is becoming, remembering promises like the coming of the two witnesses brings back a smile to my heart.  Can you imagine the outrage, the vein popping blue faced hatred that is going to be hurled at these two witnesses?  Look at the hatred and murder in the hearts of people against Trump, and Trump is no choir boy.  I can hear it now, "they (the two witnesses) are racist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic, religious extremist, you fill in the rest of the blank-ists.  I can only imagine the surprise the so called 'tolerant' people of our world are going to experience when they try to shout down and commit violence against these two witnesses....

Enough is enough.  There is a day coming when all will be settled and that day is not far off.  Glory to God.

Get Ready, Get Right, Be Watching


1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

It is becoming more clear by the day that the end of all things is near.  Take this story for example:

'Mark of the beast?' Microchipping employees raises apocalyptic questions

Note with me that they bring in the spiritual 'expert' to downplay the chipping.

Or how about this video:

Urgent 2017: Rebuilding The Third Temple is beginning.

According to this video ^^ it looks like a reasonable case has been made that the third temple can be rebuilt at any time because the dome of the rock is not the site the temple was built on.....

Last but not least the Lord has stirred this nobody's heart that it is time to renew or drive deeper into our prayer lives.  It is time to fast, pray and get back into the Word in earnest.  This writer has no idea when exactly the Lord is coming back for us but this writer does know the stirring of the Spirit of the Lord.

Frightful times are ahead, we don't need any more evidence of that than what is happening all around us on a daily basis.  People are ready to kill each other, Christianity and Judaism are being roundly criticized as 'outdated' concepts that need to be done away with the bring in peace and security for all.  "If only we were all more inclusive" they say.  What do they mean?  Light needs to have communion with darkness.  That's what they are really saying.  They want us to accept Biblical abominations and every other anti-Christ concept you can think of in the name of global unity.  Is that going to happen?  Sadly, for many the answer is yes.

Why are they flooding formerly Christian countries with Muslims?  Why the push for  acceptance of every sexually deviant practice under the sun?  Why are they so obsessed with dissolving national boundaries?  They want their one world satanic order.  None of this is revolutionary, the All Knowing One told us this would happen thousands of years ago and the pieces are falling in place exactly as He told us they would.

On one hand this could be considered alarming.  On the other hand our God does not make mistakes.  You and I are here exactly because we were created to be here right now in this day and age.  It is no mistake, according to His perfect plan we are here to do what it is He has called us to do.  What are we to do?

Fast, pray, stay in the Word.  And when the Spirit of the Lord stirs us to do something, do it.  That's it.  He never told us what we had to do was difficult to understand.  It may be difficult to do (it is) but it is not difficult to understand.  Every one of us who is called by His name knows with certainty what we are supposed to be doing (fast, pray, stay in the Word).  If we do these simple things, the Spirit of the Lord will lead us into the rest. 

It is time to get back to the basics.  It is time to do the things we know we should be doing but due to the thousand and one other things to do in this life we have let the important things slip.  We do serve a merciful and loving God who is now telling this servant who is now telling you to get your spiritual house in order.  This nobody has no idea when things are going to happen but we all know what is going to happen.  We were told thousands of years ago and now it is all happening.  In His love and mercy He has given us this preparatory order: get ready, get right, be watching.

3 Things

3 things the Lord has been emphasizing to this writer:

1.  Fast
2. Pray
3. Stay in the Word

I've never done much fasting before but the Lord has been teaching me how to do it.  There is no fixed length of a fast that is acceptable to get the results we are looking for.  The Lord has taught this writer to do the fasting that I can, and over time push myself gradually to do more.  So right now I am doing around 16 hours per day, not even a full day yet but what the Lord wants from us is what we can give not what we cant give.  If 16 hours is it, 16 hours is it.  Do what you can today, tomorrow perhaps you can do more.

Pray.  Its time to re-kindle flames that have been burning low.  If you have been praying less, its time to pray more.

Stay in the Word.  This one is self explanatory.  Get in the Word every day.  You don't have to stick yourself in a prayer closet for 8 hours per day, get in there when you can for whatever you can.  Something is better than nothing.

We want to finish our race strong, not come limping across the finish line.  We have no idea when:  a.  The Lord may come back for us or b.  we might go to the Lord.  We can be assured one or the other is going to happen soon.  Time is flying by, our mortal lives are mist and vapor.  We are here today, gone tomorrow.

What do these '3 things' do for us?  They get us intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ.  Why is intimacy with our God important?  Right here:

Matt 7:21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Long ago, when a man said he 'knew' a woman it meant he was intimate with her.  This writer understands the Lord's Word above in the exact same way.  How else does one explain this:

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Yes, they paid Him lip service.  Yes, they called themselves ministers.  Yes, they even called themselves by His name but they were never intimate with Him, nor He with them.  Intimacy, being shut in with our God is absolutely critical.  In case we haven't noticed He made Himself perfectly clear how He sees His relationship with us (Christians and Israel):

Jer 3:9 Because Israel's immorality mattered so little to her, she defiled the land and committed adultery with stone and wood.

Is 57:7 Upon a lofty and high mountain hast thou set thy bed: even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.

Matt 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

This is not some casual relationship, our God is looking for intimacy.  Through this intimacy we get to really know our God and He really gets to know us.  Thus, we pray we never hear these Words from our God:

Matt 7:21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Time is short.  How short?  Only the Lord knows.  He can drag out events and circumstances for as long as He wants to, Trump is evidence of this.  Just when it looked like Barack Hussein was going to drag America down into the pits of hell, the Lord slammed on the brakes.  Are we still headed in the wrong direction?  Yes, but the rate at which we are headed in that direction has been slowed.
Same thing with the European Union and Brexit.  That was another delay to this worlds anti-Christ dream being realized.  This world wants the dragon, and they will get him but they will have to wait.  It is our God's timing that prevails in all things.

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

Now, do you want the really good news?  As long as this is happening:

Prominent Trump Cabinet Members Meet for Weekly Prayer

This is not happening to America:

The First Seal: Rider on a White Horse
1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
The Second Seal: War
3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
The Third Seal: Famine
5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
The Fourth Seal: Death
7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

How can you be so sure brother D?  Right here:

Gen 18:22And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. 23And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 25That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? 26And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. 27And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: 28Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. 29And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake. 30And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. 31And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake. 32And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake. 33And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

There will be no destruction as long as a few righteous can be found.  Yes, this presents an overwhelming barrier to the man made doctrines or doctrines of devils that have been taught in these last days that try to explain away the Lord God's promises to His people.

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.

Its going to be rather difficult to both "escape all these things" while at the same time not escaping all these things (according to the escape deniers) throughout the tribulation.

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. 

Its going to be rather difficult to both be kept from the hour of trial ^^ while simultaneously enduring the hour of trial (according to the promise deniers) with the rest of this world.

Rev 12:13When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 

Its going to be rather difficult to escape the anti-Christ's reach ^^ while simultaneously being persecuted by the anti-Christ (according to the promise deniers).  When the Word of God clashes with the doctrines of man, man's doctrine goes straight into the trash heap where it belongs...

According to Revelation 12, the woman gets to sit out the worst half of the tribulation outside the serpents reach.  So much for "there is no escape."  Noah escaped the destruction of his day, Lot escaped the destruction of his day and the Lord made very specific promises to those living in the coming days:

2 Peter 2:4For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
The Godly will Be Delivered
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;) 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 Word "temptations" up there is this:
from temptation,πειρασμοῦpeirasmou3986an experiment, a trial, temptationfrom peirazó

These are the things that have been on this writers mind of late.  May the God of Creation, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless you and keep you.

Global Discontent-The Setup For Anti-Christ

According to brother Armstrong over at Armstrong economics, global discontent with the government and media is rising.  True enough, you don't have to look far to see the evidence that he is right but so what?  So, this world is being setup to run right into a divine snare:

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

and here:

2 Thess 2:3Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. 5Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? 6And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

We don't have to guess what is coming, we know what is coming ^^.  Global discontent huh?  People have about had it with the media and corrupt government huh?  Gee, sounds like people are about ripe for a 'savior' to show up.  They are being setup to embrace the anti-Christ because they refused to love Jesus Christ.  This is what we are watching unfold.  Time is short, be watching and ready for the secret return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Mark 13:32 But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Throne of Satan Moved To Germany

Literally, it did move to Germany.  Link here.

The evidence is adding up that the enemy did move to Germany with his altar...Who is it that made the 'brilliant' decision to flood Europe with radical Islam?  Germany.  Who just ruled that sharia patrols on German streets is ok?  Germany did.  Who is putting an end to freedom of speech in Germany and trying to end it across Europe?  You guessed it.

The transformation of Europe we have seen just over the past 2 years has been breathtaking.  Germany isn't the only country that has problems,  Paris has been transformed from the city of lights to the city of sewage.    Britain has a number of towns in the double digits that are now considered 'no go' zones.  

Europe will be an Islamic state.  So what?  So if you were to look at a map and remember what the Lord told us

Jer 50:9 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.

If you look at tiny Israel on the map and point an arrow north, everything to its north, north east and north west is being transformed into an Islamic state.  All of it.  One day, all of those Islamic nations (to include recently Islamic converted Europe) will be knocking on Israel's door:

Luke 21:20 When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.

It is marvelous to see the God of Creation at work.  It is both marvelous and fearful.  Barely a generation ago the Nazis were storming across Europe leaving a trail of death and destruction behind them, now its an Islamic army's turn to do the same thing and the same exact denial that existed when the Nazis were ascending is taking place while Islam ascends the same way. 

The closer we get to the end, the faster things will move

1 Thess 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Why is it people hate Trump and those who voted for Brexit?  Yes, Trump has problems but what they really hate is him standing in the way of their freight train into the gates of hell.  They want their new world order and they want the leader they will wonder after:

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

This is what they want ^^ and they have nothing but murder and malice in their hearts for anyone who stands in the way of it.  This should help you understand much of what you are hearing from the world today.  They don't want Jesus Christ, they want the dragon....and they will get it but they will have to wait for it.  For now, He who restrains will continue to do so until He is taken out of the way, then they will get what they have been asking for.....

2 Thess 2:7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains [will do so] until he is taken out of the way. 8Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9[that is], the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Who Are the Real Terrorists in the Middle East?

The UN explains:





The full 1hr 23 minute video can be found here.

In short, who is perpetrating terrorism across the world?  Babylon.  The west in conjunction with some key players in the middle east like Israel and Saudi Arabia.  Who has the Lord raised up against Babylon?  The Medes: Iran.  The Medes also have some powerful friends (Russia and if push came to shove-China).

What is the net result of the current situation?  A stalemate, at least for the time being.  There is a time for everything under heaven.  Babylon is being restrained and at some point Babylon will be ruthlessly destroyed.

"But brother D, how can you say such terrible things?  Israel behind middle eastern terrorism?  I'm not saying that, the UN is saying that along with a whole host of other countries in the world.  Does the Lord have a problem with all this Babylonian terrorism?  Yes again, and He has an answer for it:

Rev 18:1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
“ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’a
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
3For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment
4Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“ ‘Come out of her, my people,’b
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
6Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
7Give her as much torment and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;c
I will never mourn.’
8Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

And this:

Luke 21:20When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

The Lord told us exactly what would happen and it is happening.  The Medes have been raised up against Babylon.  Problems that have no human solution are all over the earth which have people ready to kill each other at the drop of a hat.  The technology to implement the mark of the beast is right at the door which no previous generation can claim.  And the list goes on. 

Sounds pretty dark because it is, for this world.  But we are not of this world.  The Lord God has made promises to punish the wicked and deliver the righteous.  Over and over He has done this in the past, and He has promised to do it again in the future.  So do not be troubled.  Be watching and ready for the secret return of the Lord Jesus Christ:

Mark 13:32But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alerte ! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’ ”

Yea, its quite a significant secret when not even the Son of God knows it....He was very clear, over and over again:  WATCH.  Watch for what?  For the owner of the house to come back.  What house?  This one:

1 Peter 2:4As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual housea to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”b

He Who Restrains


2 Thess 2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, touching the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him; 2to the end that ye be not quickly shaken from your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by epistle as from us, as that the day of the Lord is just at hand; 3let no man beguile you in any wise: for it will not be, except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 4he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye know that which restraineth, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 7For the mystery of lawlessness doth already work: only there is one that restraineth now, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nought by the manifestation of his coming; 9even he , whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10and with all deceit of unrighteousness for them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God sendeth them a working of error, that they should believe a lie: 12that they all might be judged who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Why is it that the world traveling like a greased sled on a path to hell under Barack Hussein Obama was not allowed to continue full speed ahead?  The Restrainer.  Why is it that we have this pause under Trump?  The Restrainer.  Who or what is this Restrainer?  There are only two choices:  The Holy Spirit and the Church.  That's it.  This writer does not believe there is enough evidence in the Word to be dogmatic about which one it is because it can be argued effectively either way.  What is interesting is some of the encouragement the Lord has given this writer over our participation in this restraining activity.

This gets interesting and encouraging at the same time.  What part does the Church play in this restraint we read about in 2 Thess 2?  What has the Lord God said about His Church?

Matt 5:13You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

We are salt and light.  What does salt do?  It prevents rot and decay, it preserves.  What does light do?  It drives out darkness.

Salt is restraining rot and decay and light is restraining darkness.  What other restraining power has the Lord given His Church?

Matt 16:19And 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.

While we are here on earth, we are binding and loosing.  Binding what?  The forces of darkness.  What is another word for binding?  Restraining.......

As long as the Church is on this earth, it will be restraining rot, decay and darkness.  It will be binding forces of evil and loosing the good.  Either that our the Lord God who cannot lie, told a lie.  So can we go so far as to call the Church "the" Restrainer.  Maybe, but what we can say with absolute certainty is we are playing a major role in this restraint.

In addition to our roles as salt and light, we should be praying that every evil scheme plotted against us will be exposed and undone.  We should be praying that every liar and thief in the media, in governments and everywhere else will be exposed and undone: 

Eph 5:11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Prov 21:12The Righteous Oneb takes note of the house of the wicked
and brings the wicked to ruin.

Our Father's will be done here on earth, just as it is in heaven....Every time we pray that one, guess what?  Its an act of restraint.  The wicked cannot run around wild and free in their longed for anti-Christ playground while the Church is on earth praying in our Father's will be done here...

As long as we are here, businesses that lie for a living (like CNN) should be punished.  Every business that promotes anti-Christ values (like Target and Starbucks) should be punished.  In short, the wicked should be brought to ruin.  That is our Father's will (see Prov 21:12 again) and it will be done here on earth just as it is in heaven.  We as Christians are praying that will into earth each and every day that we say that perfect prayer taught to us by our Lord:

Matt 6:9“This, then, is how you should pray:
“ ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us today our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation,a
but deliver us from the evil one.b

And while we are praying this ^^ perfect prayer, guess what else we are praying for?  Escape from the tribulation:

13And lead us not into peirazó,a
but deliver us from the evil one.b

What does peirazó mean?

an experiment, a trial, temptation

What's that?  A Trial?  Sound familiar....

Rev 3:10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Yea, and its built right into the Lord's prayer.  Glory to God.  Much to the dismay of the escape deniers, the Lord does have different plans for the righteous and the wicked.  Over and over again the Lord differentiates and divides what happens to the two groups:

Prov 13:9The light of the righteous shines brightly,
but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.

The Lord greatly encouraged me with this message of our participation in the restraint.  I do not want to see businesses and governments that flaunt their wickedness in the Lord's face to prosper.  No, I would rather see them snuffed out (Prov 13:9The light of the righteous shines brightly,
but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.)

I pray that the people within these anti-Christ organizations will turn to a saving faith in Jesus Christ our Lord, but I pray at the same time that the organizations they use as a platform to promote wickedness will be destroyed.  Look at what has been happening to CNN's ratings.  Look at what has happened to Target's stock price since they promoted transvestite men sharing a bathroom with little girls.

2 Cor 10:3For 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.

There is a reason the seemingly unstoppable tidal wave of wickedness that engulfed the world under Barack Hussein was stopped (for a season).  He who restrains is continuing to do so...Glory to God.
