Last Days Issues

I was reading Jude 1 this morning and I felt like a pinball getting bounced around all the important, highly relevant words for our days.

Starting here:

1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

You can't read a page in the bible without seeing those two words over and over again "in Christ." It's curious how babylonian churchianity never uses those words, yet they are plastered all over the bible. That should be a clue as to how much the babylonian church is tuned in (not) to the Spirit of God.

1 Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

This one is huge. There are men, everywhere in this world today, who have crept in unawares, and whose teaching turns the grace of God into lasciviousness. These men are everywhere.
Now think really hard about what the Holy Spirit tells us here. Men who preach on "grace" in such a way that you are given to expressing lust/exciting sexual desires.

1. Given to or expressing lust; lecherous.
2. Exciting sexual desires; salacious.

If you've read this blog for any period of time, you're read about such men at length. Todays babylonian form of 'christianity' teaches that God's grace covers and excuses everything. The cornerstone of this teaching is OSAS (once saved always saved) which is in effect a license to sin. Remember what we just read, these men teach a form of grace that does what? Turns the grace of our God into a lust expressing, exciting sexual desire message. Of course, this happens by stealth, nobody's going to ever admit they are doing it, but they admit it everytime they preach a message of "grace" that is in effect a license to OSAS and all its derivatives.

As if that was not convincing enough, look what is written immediately after:

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that
believed not.

Paul is putting the church in remembrance here. The Lord SAVED the people out of Egypt, then DESTROYED THEM. Does that jive with the satanic "osas-once saved always saved" grace to lust doctrine being preached today?

But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

Are we in the "last time" spoken of above? Judging by all the mockers around us I would say, yea, for sure. These men are sensual, meaning all that drives them are the fleshly senses, carnal indulgences. They have not the Spirit. If they "have not the Spirit" they are definitely not "in Christ." These are the men who make merchandise of you. They feed themselves off of your back, what happens to you is irrelevant to these men as long as you continue to "tithe."

Shifting Gears

I have been saying here for some time that time is short. Don't take my word for it, look around you. It has also been written here that in addition to our readiness to welcome the Lord today, we must also be patient. Not an easy recipe to bake, staying ready every day while also have enduring patience. Read the passage below again:

Rev 3:10 Because 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.

Because we do what? Keep the word of his patience....Our patience has a huge payoff, which is what? Being kept from the hour of temptation coming on the world. For what purpose is this hour of temptation coming? To try them that dwell upon the test them.

Notice the curious wording used above: keep thee from the hour of temptation..that should sound very familiar...

Matt 6
9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen

Now stay with me here, think about what our Lord has us praying. We just read the Lord's prayer above, which whether you realized it or not, is (in part) a prayer to be kept from the tribulation....also known as the hour of temptation

We are also very familiar with another prayer to be kept from the tribulation:

Luke 21: 36 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.

So think about this, the Lord is telling you specifically to pray for escape, to pray to be kept from temptation (which would include the "hour of temptation") and yet we've got people running around everywhere telling people that everyone is going into the tribulation, there's no escape. So once again, we face a choice, believe that our fervent prayer based on our Lord's promises is effective, or believe what men say.

The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. If the servants of the enemy can move your faith from the word of God, to the word of men, he can steal from you. Your faith determines your destiny, as the Lord said it "as you believed so it will be done unto you." If the Lord makes us a promise, and we choose not to believe it, that means we have no faith in it, guess what happens?
I believe there will be many surprised people who enter into the hour of temptation. Why? Because they believed they would. That's where their faith is. I decided a long time ago to stop debating such men, they are convinced of their future.

There are many today within the babylonian church who believe in a pre-trib "escape." I see what the bible says about this an I believe there will be an "escape from all" just as it is written in the bible, however.....the very thing the babylonian church beleives in will be their undoing when they don't participate in it. The pre-wrath, post-trib folks have their faith in the tribulation, that's their ticket into it. The babylonian church believes in a pre-trib escape, but their ticket into the tribulation will be sin, lust, worldliness, participation in an idolatrous system (pastoral/clergy/laity/nicolaitan) which through a system places men between the bridegroom and the bride. That's adultery and idolatry all in one fell swoop. There are many other reasons the babylonian church will enter the hour of testing but much of it boils down to a refusal to love the truth.

When I write these things, it is to condemn a system, a babylonian system. This blog was started years ago for this very purpose, to condemn christian apostasy. The Spirit is speaking to those who have an ear to hear today. The things written here all tie back into a central question of WHY will so few be saved? Should'nt men be asking this question before they meet their maker? Or should we just ignore that part of the bible? My own friends have asked, "are these the only things you are going to discuss?" My question back is "is the only thing a fireman gonna do put our fires?" Why does'nt the fireman focus on something else? Because that's his job. Just because you don't want to hear it does'nt mean my job changes. The Lord has lit a fire within me and it burns hot. WHY will many say to him on that day "Lord Lord" did'nt we do this, that, and the other thing for you? And he tells them "away from me you workers of iniquity, I never knew you."

Nothing has changed. When the Lord sent the prophets of old to Israel, they did'nt want to hear it. When the Lord sends messengers today to speak to an apostate babylonian church, they don't want to hear it either. The Lord sends warnings as acts of mercy and love. Men see the warnings as an impediment to their "lifestyle" and therefore have the same spirit of hate and murder within them to shut up/shut down anyone who brings the message. Nothing new is written here, its a warning that comes from the very beginning of the church. A message from the wilderness, where few dare to tread. Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.

Time is short. I do not claim to be a prophet, but I do claim to love my God with every fiber of my being and I am zealous for his ways. You do not have to be a prophet to see that destruction is coming. Economic collapse is coming and with it, chaos. Men's hearts have already begun failing them for fear, what's going to happen when the real troubles start? We have'nt seen anything yet, not even the tip of the iceberg. Things are about to get weird, with flavors of nightmares past. What lies ahead of the world will make Stalin and Hitler look like saints.

What can you do? You can pray, you can do good today, as our God defines good. You can move in close to the King of Kings and hear his voice. You can listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches today, if you have an ear to hear. What's coming will not be a one size fits all event. If you are "in Christ" you need to hear what he is saying to you specifically today. What is it the Lord has for you to do or say today? I have no idea for you, you have to find out.

There is an escape coming. Some will be kept from the hour of temptation thats coming on all the world. We are to pray for this escape from all (luke 21:36). We are to pray to be kept from temptation, which includes the hour of temptation (matt 6). Do not allow men to steal, kill or destroy the promises God makes to you in his word. You need to be very convinced of what you believe because the days are coming when only what for real will stand the test. Stand or fall, its up to you. Jesus is outside the boat calling you out to walk on water with him, that's going to require real faith.

You are dearly loved. Please pray for all those who are "in Christ" today, and all those who will be in the future. Grace and peace
