On The Road To The Mark of The Beast

Here is a recent article from legendary financial forecaster, brother Armstrong:  "Cash is for criminals-taxing cash withdrawls from ATMs."

As you can see from brother Armstrong's article, prophesy marches on regardless of who is in the white house.  Hillary was one path into prophesy, Trump is another.  They both end up in the same place.  The communists are trying every trick in their playbook to keep Trump from even being inaugurated so only time will tell if he makes it in to actually become president.  There was no Biblical mandate to vote for Trump but there is one to pray for him:

1 Tim 2:1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth

Trump, Prophesy, and How History Repeats Itself

I was watching a documentary film on Netflix recently called "Einsatzgruppen."  These units went around Europe and Russia exterminating the Jews.  Watching this reminded me also of what I read in the book "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" which brings to mind the question what happened before and what is going to happen in the future?  We know what happened, thats what is in the history books and documentaries.  We also know what is going to happen, that is written in the pages of our Bibles.

We will start with what happened.  In both the einsatzgruppen documentary and the book Rise and Fall of the Third Reich we saw what we can call action and reaction.  This principle works in politics, physics, and all other forms of worldly and other-wordly settings.  In the case of historical action, the world saw many if not most of the Jewish people, pre-WWII aligning themselves with the left.  Case in point, Karl Marx the founder of communism was Jewish.  So what?  So swinging the pendulum farther to the left (and continuing to try to push it that direction) meant it was inevitable that a counter movement pushing in the opposite direction was bound to come and it did in the form of Adolph Hitler-the reaction.

What do we see today?  If you were to poll most Jewish people in America today, where would they fall, left or right?  Hollywood (California) and New York have sizable Jewish populations, which way did those states lean?  Overwhelmingly left, socialist/communist for Bernie and Hillary.  Again, so what?  So, we just saw a reaction in the election of Donald Trump but the reaction isnt over and neither is the action.

The election is over but the left is busy pushing in any and every way they can to continue to move America (and the rest of the world) to the left.  This movement includes some very prominent Jewish people like George Soros who now claims he is an atheist.  Once again, we see the same exact historical forces aligning themselves to play out in the future just as they did in the past.  What do you mean brother?  The left which is inhabited by a significant Jewish contingent which will once again call forth their own destroyer from the right.  Where do we get that idea from?  1.  Historical precedent and more importantly 2.  From the pages of the Bible.

Israel will be surrounded with armies.  How is that going to happen?  The same way it did before.  Bad things are happening today and bad things will happen in the not too distant future and guess who will be blamed for it?  The Jews, there is nothing new under the sun.  There is coming a time when the man of sin, the anti-Christ will array the worlds armies against the Jews in an attempt to exterminate them once again:

Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

In exactly the same way that Hitler came to power pre-WW2, so the anti-Christ will come to power in the days ahead.  Read your history, what did Hitler say his reasons were for attacking the Jews (he had many reasons) and can those same reasons be found around us in the world today?  This same reasoning will resurface and in fact is already resurfacing today we just have'nt seen the blame laid at the feet of the Jews yet but that is coming.  There is a decidedly bad taste in the mouth of at least half the population today, people are angry.  How will this anger play itself out?  Again, read your history books and read your Bible. 

Rev 6:3And 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.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

What we are seeing with Trump is action/reaction.  With history and our Bibles to guide us we can see this is going to get very bad for the Jewish people who did not see Hitler coming before WW2 and do not see the anti-Christ coming today.

We know what is coming, we do not have to guess.  Our Lord told us thousands of years ago what was going to happen and it has played out precisely as He said it would.  All glory and honor be to the Lord our God who told us beforehand what would happen.

Mark 13:22For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

We are watching the rise of anti-Christ and the fulfillment of prophesy.  I do not know who the anti-Christ is but the stage is being set for him just as it was set for Hitler. Getting involved in politics and protests will not drive him away, spiritual problems demand spiritual solutions.  The anti-Christ poses a spiritual problem for this world and the only solution is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

2 Thess 2:8 And 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:

A Divine Dilemma

If one were to fill a glass with water until 50% of the volume of the glass was full of water, the fact is 50% of the glass would be full of water.  Obviously the fact also is 50% of the glass would not be full of water which leads us to the divine dilemma we find ourselves in.  Half of this country is ready to rip the other halfs head off. During the election campaign I heard over and over again that "facts dont matter" anymore.  Really?  Which facts?  The fact that the glass is half full or the glass is half empty?
What's the point brother D?  The fact is the Lord God has introduced some facts into this world that are causing some problems.  This writer can guarantee you there is a 0% chance of any politician anywhere resolving the problems around these facts.  Any solution must start with the originator of the problem with is the Lord God in heaven.

Can you be more specific about the problem brother D?  Sure, here it is:

Rev 6:3
And 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.

This ^^ is a problem nobody will be able to vote away.  There will be no political solution for it.  Look around, what do you see?  Read your social media accounts, what do you see?  Vile hatred of one person for another.  Absolute demonic rage is what you could call it. 

Are we seeing peace being taken from the earth?  You be the judge.

We dont have to be prophets to know what is going to happen.  The Spirit of prophesy is Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ is the Word of God.  We have the Word, we know what it says so we know exactly what is coming, all we have to do is look around us and play a game of connect the dots.

Thats ^^ the bad news.  The good news is we have a refuge and a shelter from the storm, He is Jesus Christ our Lord.  Here is some of that good news:

Psalms 91:1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

What the Lord has given us no man can take away.  Some people who call themselves Christians have made a living out of telling all of us there is no refuge, no escape, no place of safety.  The people only expose themselves as liars.  Are you judging brother d?  No, He is judging:

Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
 Thats right, let every man be a liar when God says: 2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.  He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.  Amen and amen and a million amens to that!

This world has problems, serious problems, divinely inspired problems.  Only He who introduced the problems can make those problems go away.  In this case spiritual problems require spiritual solutions.  If we are going to help our fellow man we are going to have to meet them "in Christ" and do our reconciliation there.  Make no mistake, His kingdom is coming and His will, will be done here on earth just as it is in heaven.  Glory to God.

We can be encouraged today that every Word spoken by our Lord and the prophets is coming true day by day.  Every Word is true and can be trusted, both the good and the bad.  He has made many promises to us that we must hold onto for dear life. Now is the time to be the lights in the world He always intended us to be.

Good News

In addition to the good news that our God loved us enough to die for us that we may be redeemed through Him, He has given each of us a job to do.  If you look around at this world and sometimes feel bewildered at the pace of events and how the world appears to be coming undone, do not be troubled.  Our God whose Spirit lives inside each one of us knows exactly what is going on.  In His infinite power and wisdom He has placed us here on earth at just the right time, now, today to do some kind of work for Him.

We each have a job to do.  Some have big things, others have seemingly little things but they all work together for our good.  The Spirit He has given us works inside us, through us to accomplish His good, perfect work here on earth.

Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Yes, He has a purpose for each and every one of us who are in Christ today.  You don't have to have your purpose advertised on a billboard in neon lights, it can be a tiny whisper in your spirit from time to time that is the Spirit of the Living God telling you what to do guiding you along the path He has for you. 

In the case of this nobody who writes to you today, the Lord never gave me a vision or a dream or a prophesy of any kind and said go do it.  He has little by little, day by day said "do this" or "do that" and hopefully this nobody has listened and obeyed enough that His will is being done through me.  It seemingly pleases the Lord that I do not know the intermediate stage of the battle plan.  I know the strategic plan-that is in our Bibles for all of us to read and understand.  I know the tactical plan-that is the day to day "do this" or "do that" commands perceived through my spirit.  Otherwise this nobody is clueless yet encouraged.  I know enough to know that I don't need to know, only He has to know.  Our Commanding General has everything mapped out.  His plans are perfect and cannot be thwarted.

If we listen to Him day by day and do our small parts for the kingdom, everything will work itself out in the end.  Remember, we live by faith not by sight.  We see a little, He sees everything.

The faster events move the more dust will be kicked up in the air meaning sometimes you will only be able to see and understand whats right in front of your face, sometimes not even that but don't be troubled.  Be infinitely patient, be faithful, pray, trust Him and everything will work itself out in the end. In all things, our Lord works for our Good.

Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Deception: A Primary Characteristic of The End Times

The disciples asked our Lord about the end times and what were the first Words out of His mouth?

Luke 21:8And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 9But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

What else did He say about this?

Matt 24:24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25Behold, I have told you before.

False prophets?  Right.  Today youtube is absolutely overflowing with people who "have a word" from the Lord?  One guy whose message has become very popular is telling people "Americas best days are still ahead" presumably because Trump was elected.  The abundance of false prophets and false messages requires those who believe to know their God.

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me

Daniel 11:32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but
the people who know their God will firmly resist him.

The "Americas best days are ahead" guy is telling people that God's judgement is on America's corrupt systems, not her people.  Really?  I didn't know systems could sin?  In fact, systems cannot sin, only people can so that is one lie right in the trash can.  As for America's best days are still ahead?  There are more holes in that message that Swiss cheese but lets see if we can dissect some of it.

America's best days in the past were predicated on strong spiritual and moral foundations with peace found among most of the population.  This election has unmasked a number of things the Lord would have us see and one of those things is there is no peace among our population.  The election of Donald Trump has brought out some of the most demonic vile hatred I have ever seen among the population of these 'United' States.  The majority of the people who voted, voted for the most wicked, corrupt, lawless and evil person (Clinton) this world has ever seen and that is saying alot.  Hillary Clinton did not even thinly veil her evil and hatred for people and yet most people voted for her.  Please note, this is not support or defense of Trump, it is a statement of fact about evil and the tolerance and acceptance of evil in the 'United' States.

So, again this brings us back to America's best days are ahead?  At least half the country is seething with rage against the other half and that is a recipe for peace and prosperity?  This country is also at an all time moral and spiritual low, so again I ask where exactly in the Bible do you find the Lord's blessing on a country that has defied and disobeyed Him at every turn?  While it is true that America has a remnant that is true to Him, our playbook that tells us how our God does business does not have a revival of peace prosperity and spirituality without widespread judgement occurring first.  Israel's history is a blow by blow account of how things work and I don't see America's best days ahead in it.

Wealth, health, prosperity and peace ahead without national repentance is a lie.

Isaiah 48:22 "There is no peace," says the LORD, "for the wicked."

Go look at your social media accounts these days and tell me if there are any wicked that need to be dealt with in America today....No peace for the wicked says the Lord.

In order for America's best days to be ahead, we would need to see one of two things occur or both:

1.  National repentance and a renewed right standing with the Almighty that rivaled America's best days in the past


2.  Widespread destruction that swept away the wicked and left a righteous remnant.

This ^^ is not my opinion by the way.  This ^^ is the way the Lord our God dealt with the nations and with Israel over, and over again.  He does not change.

The people who just lost their seat of power in the United States have no plans whatsoever to go quietly into the night.  What are their plans?  Disruption, dissent, deceit and revolution.  Go look up "color revolution" on google.   In the past they were reserved for other countries, now they have been brought to America.

I did not vote for Trump but I am praying for him and I ask that you do the same.  Only the Lord knows exactly what His plans are for America and the rest of the world but He has not left us clueless.  He already told us what is going to happen and He already told us how He dealt with Israel and the nations in past situations so we know what to expect.

Do not be deceived, know your God.  That is counsel from the Most High God to us.

Pray For Donald Trump

Donald Trump is the president the Lord God has given us.  Let us pray for him according to the Word of the Lord:

1 Tim 2:1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

If Trump tries to do what is right for the people, "they" will try to stop him.  Let us pray for Donald Trump that:

1.  The Lord will assign an angelic secret service detail to Donald Trump to protect him from every dirty trick the enemy throws at him.

2.  That the Lord will grant him supernatural strength, wisdom and insight to do our Father's will here on earth, just as it is in heaven.

Trump will need our prayers.  It was not our God given duty to vote for him but it is the Lord's will that we pray for Him.

God or Government, Searching For a Savior

The tribulation will be a time of trial and testing.  This writer would argue we are being tried and tested now.  How so?  This past Jubilee year was a year of revelation to all the world.  What was revealed?  The complete corruption of this world and its systems.  The media is utterly corrupt, the governments are utterly corrupt, the corporations that support them both are utterly corrupt.  So what?

So, this revelation of complete corruption has tested and tried many people.  There are three categories that people are falling into during this time of testing:

1.  Those who could care less about the corruption, greed, fraud, murder etc.  These people are either spiritually dead or near death.  They see what is being revealed but it does not register with them.  The corruption is like water off a ducks back, they fail to see any problem with the status quo at all.

2.  The second group sees the corruption, greed, fraud, murder and their answer is to "get out and vote for change!"  In other words, they are looking to the government to save them from the corruption, greed, fraud, murder that threatens to overwhelm this world.  Yes the danger is real but it is a spiritual danger not a political one that underlies the problems we are seeing.

3.  The third group sees the corruption, greed, fraud, murder and seeks refuge in the Lord their God.

Matt 6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

This writer can tell you that the Spirit of the Lord has never given an order not to vote until this election.  I have been prohibited from voting by the Spirit of the Lord.  I dont have to ask why, how what, although He has given me reasons not to do it. 

What is the problem with group 2 in the list above?  Many of these people call themselves Christian yet they take their counsel from the flesh and not the Spirit of the Lord.  There is no difference whatsoever between the faithlessness of the people looking to government (Trump) for salvation from wicked politicians like Clinton and Israel looking to Egypt for help against its enemies.  In both cases it is a failure of faith and in both cases it ended (will end) in disaster.  What is the Word of the Lord concerning such people?

Isaiah 30:1Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

Clinton is the most corrupt, wicked politician the United States has ever had in office and depending on the Lord's will in this matter she may be elected president.  So what, get out and vote right?  Absolutely not, seeking Egypt's shade and the strength of Pharaoh never was and never will be the answer.  The Lord is watching to see if His people (Christians and Jews alike) will make the same mistake over and over again.

The only way a wicked evil person like Hillary could get anywhere near the presidency of the United States is if the people of the United States were corrupt and wicked first.  Darkness cannot enter a room unless the light in that room is extinguished first....

If Clinton is elected is it a fitting crown of wickedness and corruption to complete the rot from head to toe in this nation.  If Trump is elected it will be the sin of looking to Egypt for Pharaoh's protection, indulging the flesh and a failure of faith.  Spiritual problems are not solved with political solutions.

Clinton is as evil and wicked as they come but so is the anti-Christ and nobody will be able to vote him away.  There will be no vote for the famine, war, death, plague or any of the other judgements coming upon this earth.  What we are seeing now with this vote in America is just a test and the vast majority are failing it miserably.

You know when people who call themselves Christians tell you that seeking the Lord's face in prayer for peace, safety and provision is "doing nothing" that they have been completely and utterly defeated.  To them, only seeking Egypt's shelter is doing something.  Re-read Isaiah 30:1 for what lies ahead for them.

Trump or Clinton? It Doesn't Matter Part 2

One would think from all of the pastors and priests of this world that everything is at stake in this election.  They could not be more wrong.  As Christians we are followers of Christ.  We are to walk as He walked.

1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

So let us compare what todays so called Christian leaders would have us believe versus Biblical reality.  According to todays so called leaders, when Jesus reached the age on this earth (in the flesh) to begin His work, His first actions should have been:

1.  Start a political action committee
2.  Begin a voter registration drive
3.  Make speeches at every synagogue to get the Jews "vote for change" in the next election

Surely our Lord needed to do the above plus take a number of other steps of critical importance to change the openly pagan, blatantly anti-Christ government of ancient Rome.  Let us be clear on this point, Rome made no pretense at being a Godly empire, they were anti-Christ to the core and yet what did our Lord do?  Or more importantly what did He not do?

What did our Lord Jesus Christ do when He began His earthly work?  He completely and utterly ignored the governments of this earth to include the Roman government He lived under.  That's right, He ignored them as irrelevant.  Jesus did not vote, He did not form a political action committee, He did not begin a voter registration drive, He did not speak in synagogues about the Christian or Jewish "duty to vote."  Peter, Paul, Luke, John did not vote.  They walked as Jesus did.

The Lord our God practiced what He preached.  That is, His kingdom is not of this world:

John 18:36
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Our Lord's kingdom has advanced forcefully regardless of what empire, or kingdom or political party has been in office for thousands of years.  Our Lord does not require the assistance of any politician to advance His kingdom.  What we are witnessing is the polarization of this world into that which belongs to our Lord and everything else that does not.  Those who belong to this world, speak from the viewpoint of this world.  All of these so called leaders, Christian and otherwise who speak from the viewpoint of this world are of this world and the world listens to them:

1 John 4:5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Why is this written to you today?  To encourage you.  Hillary is the most corrupt, wicked politician the United States has ever had running for president.  How fitting that the very worst presidential candidate should match the spiritual condition of this country.  Trump tells people whatever they want to hear.  According to him, he is for everybody.  They will both lead to the rise of Babylon, the mark of the beast and every prophesy written in the Bible being fulfilled.  How is that encouraging?  It is encouraging because what happens with the United States government will not matter one iota to the forceful advancement of our Lord's kingdom.  Not one bit. 

We were never told to follow or elect politicians.  We were told to follow our Lord Jesus Christ and pray that His kingdom will come and His will be done here on earth just as it is in heaven.
