The Two Pronged Push Toward The Mark

There are two strong pushes underway to lead this world to the mark of the beast.  What are they?

1.  The war on cash-look at the radical effort that is underway in India to eliminate cash.  India is heavily dependent on cash so this is an interesting test run for what they want to do all over the earth.

2.  Hacking-who can ignore the constant hacking headlines?  All sides of the argument are agreeing on one thing:  the need for increased cyber-security.  The Spirit of the Lord nudged me yesterday to pay attention to this hacking and cyber-security thing as it will be the foundation they will stand on to introduce the mark of the beast.  They will tell us "look if its in your hand or forehead it cant be hacked" or something to that effect.

As it was indicated in previous posts, Trump or Clinton, it does not matter.  They are two different roads to the same end.

grace and peace

Its Not Trump They Are After, Its Us

I am amazed at how many people have come unglued at the results of the last election.  The Lord has unmasked for us who the enemy actually is.  The people who are constantly pointing the finger and calling others racists, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, etc etc are the puppets and spiritual wickedness in high places are the puppet masters.  You dont have to look far to see the visceral hate these people have for anyone that disagrees with them.

What does that have to do with us?  Right now Trump is the easiest target to direct all this hatred at since he has the highest profile but rest assured its not really Trump their hatred is directed at, its us.  How so?  If you wrap up all the criteria these people are using to label Trump a racist, sexist, fill in the blanko-phobic you will see that it is us and our God that this vile hatred is directed toward.  Example?  Sure:

According to today's accusers of the brethren, our God is a sexist:

1 Tim 2:11A womana should learn in quietness and full submission. 12I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;b she must be quiet. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15But womenc will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

^^This is what our God said, and He meant every Word of it.  This instruction from our God is absolutely intolerable by the majority of people today.  "What do you mean quietness and full submission?  What do you mean they cannot teach or assume authority over a man?"  That's what the Lord God said and He did not leave it open to negotiation.

Our God is also a "racist"

Deut 23:3No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, not even in the tenth generation. 4For they did not come to meet you with bread and water on your way when you came out of Egypt, and they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaimb to pronounce a curse on you. 5However, the Lord your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you. 6Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live.

and here

Deut 25:17Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt. 18When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and attacked all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God. 19When the Lord your God gives you rest from all the enemies around you in the land he is giving you to possess as an inheritance, you shall blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!

Wow, ^^ that does not sound very 'inclusive' or 'diverse' to me.  Nope, in fact our God sounds down right hostile toward the Amalekites.  So....our God must be racist too for not being 'diverse and inclusive' enough for today's moralist (but not moral) majority.

And it is well known that our God is a "homophobe"

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

And an Islamophobe and all kinds of other "phobes" proved throughout the book of Joshua where our Lord tells Israel to go in and conquer the land that was given to them without sparing men, women, children, the elderly or even the animals in many cases.  The instruction was to kill everything..

Joshua 6

15On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. 16The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city! 17The city and all that is in it are to be devoteda to the Lord. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall be spared, because she hid the spies we sent. 18But keep away from the devoted things, so that you will not bring about your own destruction by taking any of them. Otherwise you will make the camp of Israel liable to destruction and bring trouble on it. 19All the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron are sacred to the Lord and must go into his treasury.”
20When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city. 21They devoted the city to the Lord and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it—men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys.

It was not until recently that I understood why the Lord had to kill so many people.  When you read something like Joshua 6 above you might ask why did they all have to die?  Why did so many people have to die?  Here is why:

Ecc1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

The reason there had to be wholesale slaughter before is the same reason there will be wholesale slaughter again.  Can you see it, the reasons are already before us.  The vile wickedness and gross profane hatred that has been hurled by the losers at the winners in the most  recent election is our assurance that all will not end well for most people on the face of the earth.  What do you mean brother?  I mean we were told wholesale slaughter is coming again:

Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
and here:

Rev 8:6Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.
7The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
8The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11the name of the star is Wormwood.a A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
12The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
13As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”

It is becoming much more clear the closer we get to these ^^ days why the Lord is going to wipe out so many people.  It is clear that no matter what facts you provide, no matter what argument you use, no matter what you say these people will not change their minds, they will not listen, their hearts are hard and becoming harder by the day.  What can be done with such people?  Re-read the short passages from Revelation 6 and 8 above.  Are you judging brother d?  Far from it, the Lord has already done that and is doing that.  I simply asked the Lord a question, "Lord why did so many have to die?" You are reading the answer in this post.  It answers why it had to happen in the past and why it is going to happen again.  All of these people we see around us with hearts full of hatred toward their neighbor are the reason why it has to happen again.  What is so ironic about it is the very same people who are purple-faced with rage are the same ones who are preaching 'tolerance.'  For this reason our Lord wrote this:

John 16:1“All this I have told you so that you will not fall away. 2They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. 3They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.

 So you can see the people who today call Trump a racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic bigot are really targeting our God and therefore us when they level these accusations.  Our God is very 'intolerant' and not very 'inclusive' to all of the vile filth and degradation this world and its people would gladly ram down our throats for as long as they were able to do it.

Trump is not my hero nor am I here to defend him.  I just watched a 60 minutes show with Netanyahu on it and who was saying that the new players (like Trump) coming onto the scene could enable a peace deal to be cut with the Palestinians in the near future.  If that is so, what does that make Trump?  Yes, all this is just speculation at this point but we know what is not speculation-every Word our God has written to us.  Everything He said would happen is happening.

Again, why will so many have to die in the book of Revelation?  Here's why:

2 Tim 3:1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

There is nothing new under the sun.  He did it before (read the book of Joshua, what happened with Noah and Lot) and He will do it again (the book of Revelation).  We do serve a just and righteous God.  I am starting to understand why He did what He did, and why He is going to do it again.

grace and peace

The Hardening

We serve an awesome and glorious God.  During the presidential election in the United States it was the Lord who set Hillary up for failure.  How did He do it?  Hillary and her team came up with a list of strategies to beat the republicans.  Hillary chose the 'pied piper' strategy to win this past election and it blew up spectacularly in her face.  This was an excellent example of how our Lord works to destroy some and save others.  Where else can we find an example of our Lord hardening some to save others?  Here:

Joshua 11:16So Joshua took this entire land: the hill country, all the Negev, the whole region of Goshen, the western foothills, the Arabah and the mountains of Israel with their foothills, 17from Mount Halak, which rises toward Seir, to Baal Gad in the Valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. He captured all their kings and put them to death. 18Joshua waged war against all these kings for a long time. 19Except for the Hivites living in Gibeon, not one city made a treaty of peace with the Israelites, who took them all in battle. 20For it was the Lord himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminating them without mercy, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

and here:

Exodus 11:4So Moses said, “This is what the Lord says: ‘About midnight I will go throughout Egypt. 5Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well. 6There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there has ever been or ever will be again. 7But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any person or animal.’ Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel. 8All these officials of yours will come to me, bowing down before me and saying, ‘Go, you and all the people who follow you!’ After that I will leave.” Then Moses, hot with anger, left Pharaoh.
9The Lord had said to Moses, “Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you—so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt.” 10Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go out of his country.

The aftermath of the American presidential election has unveiled a rage and hatred unlike many of us have ever seen in our lifetimes.  This nobody would argue that these hate and rage filled individuals are being marked for destruction.  There is a hardening of hearts taking place.  Why is the Lord hardening the hearts of these people?

Matt 24:9“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Because the love of most has turned cold.  But what has the Lord instructed us to do?

John 13:34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

 Can a person in one breath say they are a disciple of the Lord and in the next breath spew vile filth and toxic hatred toward their fellow man?  Thus, we are identifying what and who people really are.

2 Timothy 2:24And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

 The Lord is bringing about justice on this earth.  One might look around and say "where are you Lord?  How are these people getting away with their vile wickedness?"  The answer is nobody is getting away with anything.  Our God is busy doing His work today and every day.  Today's letter to you was written to present evidence of that work.  Our God knows what He is doing and He has everything on track to fulfill every letter of His Word just as it is written.  His Word and His will, will be done!

The lesson for us in what is happening is 1.  to not become hardened in the midst of all the lawlessness and hatred around us and 2.  that we love each other as our Lord loves us.

No one said this would be easy, but with Him and in Him all things are possible.

Keep the faith, remain in His love.  Be patient, persistent in well doing and strong in the strength only our Lord can give.

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