The things I am about to share with you over the next few posts are uncomfortable. Uncomfortable for you to consider and, quite frankly, uncomfortable for me to share. That is because I will no doubt be labeled by some as a conspiracy nut, or as just plain nutty. Then again, I am a stay-at-home-home school-homesteading mom who wears a head covering (1 Cor. 11) and doesn’t “do” santa or the Easter bunny, doesn’t watch TV, and a gentile who observes Hanukkah. I suppose I am already considered odd, even by Christians, so I may as well lay it all out on the table. 🙂 I am half-joking, but this is serious business.
Over the next few posts I am going to share with you some videos I have been praying over. I pray for discernment and wisdom. I recommend you do the same. I pray that God not allow me to be deceived nor to naively go down any unnecessary rabbit holes. The response has been MORE videos and information that corroborates and expands upon the previous videos. So. Here we are.
There is one important thing we need to understand about spiritual warfare: It isn’t necessarily how most of us in the West consider it to be. Remember the old cartoons that would have a little devil pop up on one shoulder and an angel on the other? That is about the extent of how many people view spiritual warfare.
Real spiritual warfare isn’t a cartoon!
There is an unseen war raging all around us and most people aren’t even aware of it. There are legions whose main goal is to keep mankind in the pit of darkness and to stave off the worship and knowledge of the One True God Jehovah and His Son Yeshua Ha Mashiach. Their job is an easy one where unbelievers are concerned, but these legions aren’t interested in those they have already captured. They want those who claim to be Christians and those who are searching. Meanwhile, those who profess to know Christ are sitting idly by, unaware they are in the middle of a war or if they are aware it is a vague awareness as demonstrated in the old cartoons.
Mostly, American Christians are just too comfortable. We are comfortable physically, yes, but we are also comfortable in our willful ignorance of the real battle. We are so comfortable that we aren’t engaged in the warfare at all. Instead we are playing footsie with the enemy and don’t even know it! We, too, are among those who call evil good and good evil. We have become so comfortable in our traditions and with the world that we cannot recognize the enemy, even when he has us by the throat!
And he does have us by the throat!
If we aren’t thinking of spiritual warfare as a cartoon then we go the other extreme and think of it as obvious demonic activity. While evil is certainly becoming more “in your face”, it is only because we opened the door to it by ignoring our “little” sins and dipping our toes into the world’s pool.
There are many reasons for this but I will give just a couple. Somewhere along the way, Jesus stopped being Lord. Well, He didn’t stop; we stopped serving Him as Lord. The Gospel became watered down (a subtle but effective weapon of the enemy) and the Holy Bible became merely a blue print for moral living, rather than the Living (and literal) Word of God that is sharper than any two-edged sword.
Allow me to close this introductory post with a few key verses we need to arm ourselves with as the Lord opens our eyes to the battle around us. It is my prayer that all believers wake up to the schemes and weapons of the enemy so we may be as wise as serpents, harmless as doves and fully devoted to the work set before us. Also take time to watch the linked video below the Scriptures. Maranatha!
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,….II Corinthians 10:3-5 NKJV
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. I Peter 5:8-9 NKJV
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10-12 NKJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2 NKJV
I am always cautious when I hear or read of someone having a prophetic vision. I believe there is a sect of bloggers, vloggers and “truthers” out there capitalizing on the increased awareness/interest of end times events. So much is sensationalized and well-meaning truth seekers can become victims of deceit very easily.
The story of the secularist Jewish boy Nathan comes to mind. When his vision hit YouTube, so-called prophecy watchers were all over it. Otherwise respectable people soaked up his every word as if he was truly given a message from God. Don’t get me wrong, I believe Nathan is sincere and did indeed have a vision. I just don’t think it was from God. I say this because 1. Nathan said the Messiah is already here and 2. they need to do good works. Folks, that is not the Gospel. Jesus is Messiah. He was here but is for now at the right hand of the throne of God making intercession for His people. He is coming back, and when He does, He won’t hide among the masses but will be enthroned in Jerusalem and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. Furthermore, good works will not save anybody. Only faith in Jesus can do that.
It is very important we pray for discernment concerning reports of visions and near death experiences.
It is with that disclaimer I present to you the vision of a boy named David. At the time of his vision, he was 16 and a nonbeliever. His family had been witnessing to him, but he remained doubtful.
What you will hear in the audio recording of his recount of his vision is very disturbing. That is why I am sharing it. His terror and agony over what he saw is apparent and sounds too real to be fake. At one point his uncle is telling him that God is real etc and the boy exclaims, “It’s all real!” and all I could think about was the verse that says there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for that is indeed how the boy sounded. So many people who spent their lives rejecting the Truth will one day exclaim those same words, only their agony will be their eternal reality.
The boy’s uncle tells him God have him the vision so he may finally understand and not doubt, as well as be a witness to others. I do not know. The events described in the vision are horrific and somewhat confusing. He says average people will suddenly become crazy and kill just to be killing. After reading of the effects of synthetic drugs such as Flakka, that cause super human strength and cannibalism, it is possible. It could also be a part of God giving rejectors of the Truth over to a debased mind.
Anyway, below is the video by Ben Nun that brought this to my attention. He provides the original source in the description. Linked below the video is the transcript of David’s vision, as the audio can be confusing because the boy is crying hysterically throughout his retelling of what he saw.
Time is winding down for us folks. We must be ever so diligent in spreading the Gospel and to arm ourselves with the full armor of God.
22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch. John 10:22-23
Over 2000 years ago, before Christ, (the 3600s by Hebrew calendar), Israel was controlled by Syria (who was basically controlled by Rome). Long story shorter: the Syrian king Antiochus IV decreed an end to the Jewish religion. All Jewish practices were forbidden, punishable by death. A group of brave and faithful Jews called the Maccabees revolted against Antiochus and fought to reclaim Jerusalem and the temple. Although vastly outnumbered, the Maccabees prevailed. That is Miracle One. The Maccabee army’s leader, Judah, found the temple vandalized and cluttered with Syrian idols. He and his men cleaned out the temple and built a new altar. They rededicated the temple on the 25th of Kislev and lit the Menorah. Miracle Two is they found only ONE DAY’S worth of pure, undefiled, oil with which to light the Menorah. It takes several days to purify the oil and once lit, the candlestick is not to go out! Still, they lit it anyway and that one day’s supply of oil continued to burn for EIGHT DAYS, until new oil was available. The event is commemorated as the Festival of Dedication, or the Festival of Lights, aka Hanukkah.
It’s an amazing story and one I had never heard until last year! Below are three videos in a series by Jacob Prasch concerning Hanukkah. He not only tells the history of the holiday, but he does a wonderful job relating it to Bible prophecy of the last days. He challenges all of us to be a Maccabee and stand up for the Truth no matter what. The special “prayers” recited during Hanukkah has to do with ” “delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few… the wicked into the hands of the righteous.” (linked below)
I recommend taking the time to listen to these videos. Not only are they informative, but also encouraging. To read a more complete history of Hanukkah and how it is celebrated today, click this link: http://www.chabad.org/holidays/chanukah/article_cdo/aid/102978/jewish/The-Story-of-Chanukah.htm
Also, just FYI: Hanukkah this year begins on December 24th and ends January 1st.
Please take a moment to watch this video. I found it very encouraging
The America of 2016 is not the America in which most of you grew up. In fact, it is hardly recognizable. There is no need to compare the differences, for they have seared most of our hearts and left many feeling angry and confused. Rightly so.
The Republican nominee for President of the United States is pushing the slogan “Make America Great Again”. Many (dare I say millions?) of Americans are fed up with the direction this country has been heading. They see a downward spiral, economically, spiritually and morally. America’s light upon a hill is dimming. They want that light back.
As much as I hate to say it, I’ve got to give it to you straight: We ain’t getting it back! There indeed may be a “revival” and return to old-fashioned values among individuals, but as a whole….this country has a grim future.
No, I’m not just being a Gloomy Gus who has given up.
It is past time we wake up to what is happening around us and for Christians to open up their Bibles and actually study it. Many Christians are aware that we are in the end days. Few actually heed it. What I mean is, few actually live like Jesus could call His Church at any second. There is no sense of urgency to be about our Father’s business. People, including Christians, are more impassioned about the upcoming election than they are about the return of Jesus. I’m getting off topic a bit. Let me redirect my focus to: What exactly IS happening to America?
What is happening is no accident. It may appear she is imploding and part at the seams. Racial rivalry, Islamic terrorism, open immigration, transgender policies, common core (yes, that’s right), increase in drug induced murders, etc. may seem like America is falling apart and doing this to herself. In reality, America is being deliberately destroyed.
And God is allowing it to happen. That is important to remember.
As I stated earlier, many Christians are aware we are the last generation before Christ’s return. They see/hear of the earthquakes, volcanoes, massive fish and bird die-offs, increase in violence and the wars and rumors of wars. They see the increase in satanic activity and decrease of the most basic Christian values. They even see the apostasy that is growing among professing Christians and their churches and how New Age philosophies and practices have seeped in. They are aware of all this, and those with a minimal knowledge of Prophecy know there will be a day when the world is governed by a one world government. This government will be headed by the man of perdition, aka antichrist. There will also be a global religion that will ultimately worship the antichrist, who is indwelt by satan. The Church (Body of Christ, NOT the RCC) are aware of these things.
Yet, American Christians continue to marvel and tsk-tsk at the direction this country has turned. They still cling to the idea if they only keep Hillary out of the highest office in the land, all will be well. They can’t seem to make the connection that the end-time scenarios we see being played out and the demise of America are part of the same package. The New World Order global government and religion will somehow happen outside of America, and if only Trump is elected then we can return to the 1950s.
Granted, Trump may be the better choice. We know what we will get with Hillary and can only hope that Trump doesn’t let us down. That is what many Trump supporters tell me. Again, I say those Christian Americans are missing the point.
We are in the last days. Jesus will call for His Bride and meet them in the clouds. Sometime after that, the Tribulation Period as recorded in Revelation will begin. A global leader will arise to promise safety and peace. This man will eventually be indwelt by satan himself. A world religion will spread and flourish, once the Bible-thumping extreme fundamental Christians are gone. These things cannot happen if America remains as it has always been.
There can be no global government if America remains strong and sovereign and set apart from the world. It MUST assimilate into the NWO or be wiped out completely. Got it? I hope so.
Remember, God is Sovereign and nothing happens unless He allows it. Though evil forces are at play, God is still in control and is allowing the forces to do their thing. These evil forces think they are in control and can outwit God. Their every attempt is actually being used by God to fulfill His own Word and plan.
So, what is REALLY happening to America? The stage is being set for the NWO, the global government. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know there is a small group of powerful people that are actually pulling the strings for all world events. George Soros comes to mind.
The Black Lives Matter movement has strengthened and spread because of the efforts (read: money) of Soros and others. Ferguson and similar events were made worse because people were actually paid to riot and cause trouble. Plants are placed in these towns to stir up emotions and create chaos. Soros (and I’m certain there are others) donated a minimum of 650,000 dollars to BLM. Inshort, Americans are being played. They are holding a cock-fight and we are the roosters.
“Refugees” are being allowed into the country freely with the full knowledge that there are likely terrorists among them. Obama and cohorts are really not so stupid as to believe Islam is not to blame. They are feeding us a bunch of bull so we will feel guilty for ever having thought such a thing and just simply roll over and let them strip us of our freedom, our reason and our dignity.
Now let’s look at Hillary. There is NO reasonable explanation for that woman to not be in jail. She hasn’t been convicted because the puppeteers still find her useful. That is why she is not only walking free, but running for POTUS!
To understand what is happening in America, as well as around the world (rise is Islamic terrorism, ISIS, Syria, Palestinians vs. Israel, troubles throughout Europe et al), we need to know about the Hegelian Dialectic.
n. an interpretive method in which some assertible proposition (thesis) is necessarily opposed by an equally assertible and apparently contradictory proposition (antithesis), the contradiction being reconciled on a higher level of truth by a third proposition (synthesis). Free Dictionary
Thesis vs antithesis=synthesis. In the case of the globalists, the synthesis is the New World Order. In the case of satan, the synthesis is the world worshipping him. Although the dialectic is named for and attributed to Georg Hegel (died 1831), it is a satanic philosophy used throughout history. Take two opposing forces (thesis and antithesis)cause conflict and chaos, then step in to bring order to the chaos and achieve set goal (synthesis). Example: Islam vs Christianity (Western values). BLM vs (not otherwise racist) white Americans and/or police officers. Homosexual/transgender movement vs those who hold to traditional values. Esau (Palestine) vs Jacob (Israel). Conservative vs Progressive. The list goes on and on. The end result? Order out of chaos at the implementation of globalism, which heralds in unity and peace.
The Hegelian dialectic plays a key role in bringing about the antichrist government.
If only the roosters would spur their handlers, huh? Still, all of this is happening because we are reaching the end of history as it has always been. There WILL be peace, unity and security on earth someday, but not until the Prince of Peace, Yeshua Hamashiach sets up His kingdom at the end of the tribulation. In the meantime, look up and be watchful, for our Redemption draws near! You do not want to be left behind to face pure evil fully unleashed and God’s impending wrath on a rebellious world! Confess, repent and be baptized while it is easy to do so in America. Die to yourself and cast your burdens upon Yeshua!
