Current Events, Prophecy and The Gospel
Updated: May 29
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
There is a lot of news in our nation about the virus, the vaccine, political riots and social justice wars. Meanwhile, actual war rages in Israel as threats from the Russia and China spew further and louder. Poverty persists. Islam waves blades at Christians in proud, plain sight across the Middle East. UFOs dive-bombing into the ocean behind the white house on mainstream news is ho-hum at this point.
There is a bigger story that the media isn't telling. A story of hope. Of Truth.
We are told in John 16:13 that the Spirit of Truth interactively dwells in those who have faith in Jesus Christ and that "he will declare to you the things that are to come". Only through God's Word, the Spirit of Truth, can we understand that what appears to be chaos and danger in the world around us is within the perfect orchestration of our great conductor. He has comprised all things as a symphony for his glory.
I like the way that Paul says in 2 Corinthians 2 that we don't come in the name of Christ "to peddle religion". We are saved by grace for one purpose: to give away the good news of Jesus Christ. This is a work of the Holy Spirit, and one of his means of this grace is through the witness of believers. Sinners who have been saved, forgiven, and redeemed are called by God to invite others into the inheritance that we've received. We are counted righteous by belief in Christ alone. Not by works. Hallelujah!
God's love is the very power that created the universe and all that is in it. He is love. (1 John 4:8 Love is the very essence of who God is and why he created us -- to show the riches of his grace through Christ. This loving mercy is his Word to us, come in Jesus, who tells us to repent and turn to Him so that we will be forgiven for our sin and have eternal life in union with him -- no longer separated and condemned because of our sin, but counted as the perfect righteousness of Christ. Then, we are called as disciples to live in holiness and stand for truth. (Eph 2:7, 1 John 4:8)
God is in control. And, God does not permit us to use his sovereignty as a free ride to passively allow the plans of the wicked to snare people for whom Christ died. To stay silent is to welcome the current that is flowing the wrong way. According to Ezekiel 33, those who see and know but do not warn will be held accountable.
Whether you currently trust in Jesus Christ or not, I pray that you'll read on. The world is broken. Let's dance before the remedy of our souls, offered straight from God's hand in Him.
Before we discuss how current events point to biblical prophecy, here are some of Christ’s instructions:
"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."(James 1:5)
"What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs." (Matt.10:27)
“Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” (1 Cor. 14:1)
Two thirds of the Bible is prophecy. It tells us what to anticipate and we're made able to see and understand it with the help of Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth. “For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
I cannot get over the wonder of God's Word. The book of Revelation starts by saying that those who study it are blessed: "Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near." (Rev 1:3)
Saints are called by God, repeatedly, to watch and warn. Jesus says, “Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” (Rev. 22:12) He tells us to stay awake, to be vigilant, and to prepare for what is coming. God commands us to be in tune with prophecy to see that we "aren't in the dark about these these things . . . and won't be surprised when this day will overtake you as a thief." (1 Thess 5:4)
Explaining God's judgement and biblical end-times prophecy does not compromise the gospel message of mercy, grace and love. It magnifies it. Without a knowledge of our sin and the judgement that is upon us from a perfect God because of it, the gift that God offers in Jesus Christ is diminished. Without value. Not received.
I had what felt like a few crash and burn attempts to point others towards the truth since the start of the pandemic. Discouraged, I was falling asleep a few months ago and I silently prayed, "Lord, if it's your will for me to share my dreams from you, please confirm it. Give my husband a dream related to mine and I'll be obedient." I didn't tell my husband this. The next morning, when my husband opened his eyes he said, "Woah. I just had an end-times dream."
It's with joy that I lay down the idol of my comfort to bring you this message. (Which I white-knuckle-held onto, long after God prompted me to speak up.) It's important to me not to squeeze my ideas into theology, but rather, let the text strain my thoughts, keeping what remains, inviting discussion and input from the body of Christ. We must always test everything against the word of God, because the Bible is infallible and sufficient. When God grants dreams and visions to support and highlight his word, it's because he is generous, beckoning, and loves to exhibit his glory when prophecy comes to pass. It is written, “Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.” (1 Thess. 5:20-21, Acts 2:17, Eph 4:11-13)
"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already." (1 John 4)
In early March of 2019, just before the pandemic was declared by the media to have hit U.S. soil, I had a short dream that I recognized as from the Lord. In the dream, I thought I had awoken, because it was so vivid. I “awoke” to an alert on my phone. Someone sent me a text message with a link that read, “C19 Threatens America.” When I tapped the headline, an enormously thick, oily, black serpent lunged out of it and began to wrap itself around me.
Now, I feel I have had more than my share of encounters with demonic manifestations as an obedient minister of the gospel in my very witchy neighborhood, but the oppression that I felt from this snake was more intense than anything I have encountered in “real” life. It was as if I was experiencing evil and fear in its purest form. I knew that this monster was straight from the pit of hell.
I opened my mouth to rebuke it, but fear was constricting me so tightly that I could not breathe. I couldn't even speak. It continued to produce it’s never-ending length out of the headline, wrapping further and tighter around me. It levitated me into the air above my bed. Because I could not speak verbally, I thought, “In the name of Jesus Christ, release me!” Instantly, it disappeared. It dropped me back down onto the bed. I woke up.
My heart was racing. I thought, “What the heck was that?!” Clear as a bell, I heard in my spirit, "Do not fear."
I am not in the habit of checking in with the Lord about any old dream, because, pizza. And, because God makes himself heard clearly. "For God is not a God of confusion but of peace." (1 Cor 14:33, 2 Tim 2:7)
And, he did. Soon after this dream, covid began to flood the media. I continued to hear the Lord, “Do not fear.” I thought it was only about not fearing a deadly virus. When I prayed for wisdom, it saw that the virus is fear itself. Fear is a great deceiver. Scripture flooded my mind:
"Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." (Matthew 10:16)
"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.” (Ephesians 6:12)
“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2)
The Bible refers to Satan as the "prince of the power of the air", emphasizing the serpent that levitated me in my dream. He is the father of lies, the world's god, and the jealous adversary of God.
As with the serpent coming forth from the headline, the truth in the media is being twisted to create fear. Fear begets anger. Business for him as usual. What's new is the global magnitude of this. Deception is not news to many people who have become wise to media censorship and the long-standing covert operatives of eugenics. Independent investigation by peer-reviewed sources, a little knowledge about world history, and observing reality (not the news) dispels some of the lines that the government-owned media is broadcasting.
l hate that anyone has died from any viral burden on the immune system. It's tragic. And it's tragic that greed has disappeared two, cheap, easy, side-effect-free cures for covid from their long-standing over-the-counter availability at the announcement of a pandemic with no explanation. (Ivermectin and hydrocloroquine) It's also tragic that the three presidents (of Chad, Haiti, and Tanzania) who spoke against the WHO and told their people to keep living their lives were announced murdered. It's tragic that this vaccine has killed over 45, 000 people in the past few months. And that it is compromising the health of many by causing myocarditis, sterility, miscarriages, and an array of devastating neurological disorders.
(Vaccine death and adverse reaction records are accessible in a well-buried section on the VAERS website. I would have given up on viewing this data because of the painstaking hoop jumping it requires, no doubt on purpose, but I refused to be another lazy casualty. VAERS is one of 11 data-reporting sites about vaccine deaths and reactions, to spread thin the appearance of its danger. But it's alarming enough, standing alone.)
I have concern for a vaccination that escapes liability by having people sign on the dotted line before the poke. And for healthy, young people who are lining up to get these experimental vaccines. Mainstream media is government funded and medical professionals are educated by the pharmaceutical industry. There have been many whistleblowers on the non-necessity and toxicity of this vaccine. These doctors have been persecuted and silenced. Some of the vaccines are just saline solution, so that some can declare they've had the vaccine and feel great. The CDC has admitted this, since nurses and doctors have been discovering it in their clinics. Simply Saline. Others, a far more sinister injection. Many are sacrificing their medical practice by speaking what their patients are experiencing post-vaccine. Media outlets are working hard to censor free speech in the name of "public welfare".
If you've had this vaccine, please don't panic. Fear is more poisonous. God uses all for the good of those who love him. Certainly weigh the risk / benefit of boosters going forward with all of this in mind. The Holy Spirit is an eager counselor when we call on Him and study his word. Saints are marked by the blood of the lamb, and nothing can steal the resurrection power of Christ that is in us. He will help us to be "wise as serpents" when we seek him diligently.
We need to be aware of what’s going on, but to be aware while standing on the bedrock of God's promises. When fear comes slithering up to us, we in who are in Christ have to be swift in reminding it that we have nothing that belongs to it. I know fear well. I'm walking in victory, Praise Jesus, but fear still comes knocking at my door. It's okay. We get to reject the temptation to indulge it with anything but the sword of the spirit, the mighty Word of God.
We are seeing familiar patterns in history trying to reemerge. Some of these things warrant prayerful resistance. This year has reminded me of the way the third reich used "public welfare" to grow its regime. Nazi Germany started as a health initiative, too. It called itself the Thousand Year Reich, a sinister counterfeit of the millennial kingdom that God promises to bring through himself, and soon. Satan is always raising an "antichrist" in the wings, because he doesn't know exactly when God will evacuate his people and the tribulation will begin.

We are no more evolved, although people like to think so. Greed just comes along with humanity. Eugenics thinks its virtuous. I had a conversation with a Swedish doctor about a decade ago who leaked his eugenics beliefs to me after a glass or two of wine. He completed his rationale about withholding healthcare from the sick and poor with a wink, saying, "I don't share this often, because people call me a Nazi." I liked this man. I was young and surprised to hear what I was hearing. A few years later, I was serving him dinner on his death bed, wondering if he still felt the same way.
Jacques Attalli in an interview, explaining the mission of the global elite.
Godly virtue exists too, no doubt, amongst leaders, doctors, and vaccine developers. But virtue must be sharpened with wisdom to deal with the sin that stalks it. The sin that exists always persists. It didn't die with world war II. Now, with the world wide web, its tentacles can spread to every corner of the world. And they are. God is greater, and bigger, as one day the world will see.
These far-reaching, global events and government solutions are what makes the current times different than, say, the terror of Nero or the holocaust. No one alive in those days with a Bible was wrong when they believed that they were witnessing end-times events. All war, mass tragedy and oppressions are the beginnings of what the Bible refers to as birth pains that are leading up to the return of Jesus and the final judgement.
My primary objective in writing this is not to "expose the pandemic" or other questionable things that some are readily dismissing as conspiratorial. I’m writing this to discuss the supernatural realm that is busy at work behind it. If the church is distracted by arguments about masks, race, and politics, which are intentionally provoked through social media algorithms, the kingdom of darkness can get a lot done. God is demonstrating the faithfulness of his word by bringing biblical prophecy pass before our eyes.
The Bible tells us that the spirit of the antichrist is at work in the world already. He is using lies about the virus, the vaccination and is implementing social penalties to ultimately set up a system of allegiance to him. When he emerges as an official figure, I believe that this will climax into what the Bible calls the "mark of the beast" in Revelation 13. The bible tells us that those who get it will be able to participate in society. They will be able to buy and sell. Those who don't will be excluded from society, and ultimately, hunted. God's word says that those who get this mark, when it eventually comes, will not inherit his kingdom, but rather will endure his wrath.
We are called by the Holy Spirit to stand on the front lines and fight violently with the weapons of our warfare. (2 Cor 10:4) I'm nobody but a forgiven sinner who seeks the Lord with all my heart. And I believe with all my heart that the Lord is calling his people to get with the program. We need to be praying in the spirit, with his eyes, not out of our flesh and a hope of "back to normal." God cares about the little things with all of us, indeed, but the object of our hope and prayer in this season needs to be higher. Greater than what we are seeing with the eyes of our flesh. Luke 10:19 says, "I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." Instead of using her authority against this serpent, the church is petting it.
The levitation of my body into the air by the serpent in my dream is important. Satan is bewitching many people. As the “prince of the air”, he is suffocating people with deception and fear by broadcasting spells, literally through the air-waves. This might sound hokey at first, but before you roll your eyes, I will show you how I think this is biblical.
The Bible says that in end-times, the nations will be deceived by "sorceries". This "sorcery", that the Bible warns about, is “pharmakeia” in the original greek: “By thy sorceries (pharmakeia) all nations will be deceived.” This is where the word, "pharmaceutical" comes from. Considering the nature of covid and the unprecedented global push for the vaccine, it is worth understanding this word. Pharmakeia connotes biological manipulation for dark purposes, through the administering of drugs or other manipulatives. Could this be part of the pharmakeia sorcery prophesied in Revelation 18? I think it begs prayerful consideration.
For me, the word "sorcery" conjured images of Jafar from Aladdin -- his cobra staff and its ominous red ruby. The Bible describes, according to pharmakeia, that the kingdom of darkness will poison the world and put it into a trance. We can examine the evidence and see that the aggressive campaign for these vaccines is unwarranted, deceptive, and harmful.
“And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee; for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries (pharmakeia) were all nations deceived.”
So, we know that pharmakeia means that the merchants of Babylon will poison and manipulate the world with the promise of better health, or a higher status. Think of these "merchants" -- "the great men of the earth" as big business people like Bill Gates, Fauci and Klaus Schwab who are in charge of making and distributing this vaccine. Most of these are merchants, not medical professionals. Why people are trusting the richest man in the world with their bodies is beyond me. Until I realized something else.
Could the sorcery that the Bible says will permeate end-times also fit with our online addiction and the media? We are immersed in it and highly influenced by it. It creates a hypnotic-like state in the brain. (Neurologists have also coined a term recently, "digital dementia.") A hypnosis experiment done by Frontiers in Psychology found that people with heightened smartphone use follow more hypnotic suggestions than their counterparts. Because fear also drugs us by inhibiting critical thinking, we could have a match made in pharmakeia Babylon.
Consider the volatility in the response of others when challenged with a thoughtful question or rejection of trending news. Yes, we feel very good about a humanitarian sounding news-capsule. Of course, "black lives matter." We virtue-signal to others by promoting it. We are heroes!
We think we are helping to make a positive difference by parroting the news. The powers that be know how to groom us by writing news and framing events in a way that appeals to a lost world's desperate need for meaning. We are to love, serve, and be alert to these things. We are to stand for righteousness and answer these issues with the truth, lest we further a wicked agenda that we don't mean to. The gospel doesn't exist to validate feelings. It exists to call us to repentance.
As Christians, and I speak to myself here, we have to stop squatting comfortably in the shadow of the prophets and apostles that suffered for the truth and start speaking the truth out of our own mouths. Simply listening and pointing out inconsistencies in someone's worldview with gentleness and love can be enough to put a pebble in someone's shoe about God. We are called to follow the way of crucified Christ as we sow the seeds of his Word, graciously. Avoiding these conversations means missing opportunities to call the world to repentance. To the gospel. We can't even begin to appreciate what Christ offers until we understand that we are on death row because of our sin. (2 Tim 2:25)
We are all sinners. And, God said that he will judge the murder of his innocents with a special fury. It is written that he judges a people "who devour their young". I'm not looking around and seeing literal cannibals or self-proclaimed satanists brazenly doing human sacrifice like in the Old Testament (although I know for a fact that its more common than we think). This is "civilized society". I do see that there are 50 million babies killed by their mothers and doctors every year. And that people are injecting some of these children into their bodies. (Many of these vaccines include fetal cells and fetal cell lines from aborted babies.) Because God is the same, yesterday, today and forever", he is furious about this. It should stir us to prayer and action. (Heb 10:13, Lev 26:28-30) There is forgiveness and help for all when we repent and turn to the cross of Jesus Christ. No matter what we've done. Christ wants to wash it away if we just will come to him.
Often, the fight or flight response that happens when we present information or a question that threatens to deflate these media-driven balloons of meaning is similar to how an addict acts when their drugs are taken. Self-righteous indignation and self-righteous celebration get us high. We need to feel significant. Which makes it very easy for social media to use us, not the other way around. This is why can be hard to converse effectively with people under this spell. Sometimes, as they hear their own circular arguments, they get aggravated. Because it's all they have. Even with gentle treading, after offering a compassionate, listening ear -- OUTRAGE. It's fascinating.
Thankfully, Christ gives us significance through faith in him. We are born into sin because we have free will and wicked appetites that we often try and justify. We lie, we steal, we harbor unforgiveness, we lust. Sin removes us from a perfect, holy God. Because God is love, and love demands justice, God must judge our sin. A permissive god is a weak god. And an imperfect god. The God of the Bible is neither of those things. It is his tremendous love that invites us out of darkness and into his light and glory and perfection through faith in Jesus Christ. "All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." (Roman 10:3)
There is, stirring in the cauldron, a stew of fear porn and meaning that the law of God and the cross takes the legs right off of. Add viles of polarizing controversy, a heap of emotional manipulation and several dashes of mental exhaustion and you have people who will comply with anything for a dangling carrot of "back to normal" or significance. It's a potion that dulls our ability to practice free and critical thinking in the guise of "public welfare" and "progressive solutions". We have seen this repeated throughout history and we will see it again.
A short story that I read in high school called, The Veldt, by Ray Bradbury comes to mind. Written in the 1950s, ahead of its time (but not really, as people are still people), the government tempers the people by putting them in futuristic smart homes and blasting noise through their brains every few minutes, so that they lose ever train of thought. They think they are happy. This disruption is intended to keep people from thinking productively against the flow of shady government output. Thinking, productive people are a threat to what the government wants to do. People might resist, or worse, rebel. These disruptions remind me of the addictive-neural firing that smart phone use creates in the brain, by checking and notifications. Social media posting and news-scrolling activates the dopamine reward center of the brain in an identical way to cocaine under a brain scan. Did you know that the average person checks their phone 262 times a day? We don't even realize it.
Pharmakeia, the sorcery of the merchants, has spiritual implications. Furthermore, God blinds those do not fear and love him from seeing truth. (Deut 29:4)
God calls us to be informed -- and formed by -- the Bible. It is good to stay plugged into the news just enough to know how to keep your family safe -- and to know what to pray about, because God uses the prayers of his people to move mountains. We should care about what is going on. I confess that I have flipped the ratio of my attention, more times than I care to admit, towards the online world. Each time, it was a downhill roll to the pit of anxiety and ungodly attitudes towards others, which is exactly where the enemy of our souls wants us. Don't take the bait. Jesus has a better offer. Let him liberate you. Let us not be too proud to think that our errant hearts can flourish without the Word he wrote for us.
The agenda of the kingdom of darkness is to keep souls who are not following Christ on the path to destruction. It is especially to oppress God's church, which requires physically gathering together, while bars and casinos were allowed to remain open. The kingdom of darkness and human nature always rise against the kingdom of God. Those who have been given new life in Christ do not need to fear it, because it’s not an even match. Not even close. Like with everything Satan intends for evil, God makes a revival for Jesus out of it.
I pray that we'll enjoy reprieve from the fear and rules around covid -- and from covid. But ultimately, scripture says that it will become increasingly harder for the church to meet as time goes on, not easier. God tells his church to not be "neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." (Hebrews 10:25) What would us, comfortable Christians, say to the saints in Islamic nations who risk beheading every time they gather in the name of Christ? God's command about gathering more as time goes on is clear. We should trust Him. (Psalm 91) Not scatter or cower in our homes because of nonsensical mandates based on lies.
The world is presenting a global plan for establishing peace, healing and justice. According to God, the human race cannot climb anywhere with godless, humanistic efforts. Sin persists. Our fallen natures come up with new and more creative ways to sin. Like the tower of Babylon to "heaven", God says that he will destroy it in the end. This is because he has plans for healing the earth, his way.
I don't downplay the value of genuine effort towards good change. The world is broken. I know people on the modern social justice train who aren't "slacktivists" (all talk and no action). They are practicing what they preach, because they really love people. God loves people, and we are all made in God's image. Some people really want to take a stand for others, even if they don't realize that it’s the very image of God in them that stirs their hearts towards compassion and justice.
Despite the way that sin distorts our understanding of justice, the imprint of our just and loving creator remains in our conscience. We are designed by God for righteousness whether we fear God or not. But a world a that does not acknowledge God's definition of righteousness can't help but define its own moral standards. We will fashion a god out of anything but, until we repent and come to Jesus.
I think of King Solomon who cried, "Vanity! All is vanity!" when he compared all his toiling under the sun to the surpassing wisdom of God, his word, and eternity. (Eccl 1) Jesus came to tell us that our works, no matter how generous, cannot save us or redeem us from our sin. (Matt 6:24) The image of God in us is stained and twisted by our sin, which is why we need a savior and the Word of God to guide our steps.
Working as peacemakers and making sacrificial change for the welfare of others is our responsibility as Christians. But we have to recognize that the new world order will come in the guise of public welfare. When an adjective, like "social" is placed in front of an already simple and sufficient concept of justice, we are going in an off-shoot direction from true north. Satan always masquerades as an angel of light. We have to pray for wisdom.
Satan appears beautiful to lure and seduce us away from God's way. God's peace. He will even use scripture and mimic the Holy Spirit in false churches where the gospel message of the cross and the name of Jesus isn't center-focus. 2 Timothy 4 says, "The time will come when [people] will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with their own lusts." We are in this time.
For example, the founders of Black Lives Matter advertise that they are trained marxists and practicing necromancers who are out to destroy the nuclear family. This makes sense, as class conflict is a historical means of ushering in communism. A major guiding force behind this organization, the founders explain, is their communing with the spirits of deceased black victims. They are channeling the "wisdom" of demons who tell them how to go about this. The "say her name" mantra is not to honor and remember a human being that died tragically, but rather, according to the "spirits" of these beings, an incantation that summons these demons into greater power and influence for this movement.
These are the sorts of sorceries that God forbids and why we need discernment. None of this was ever really about racism. Racism is a sin issue. To say that it's systemic and changeable by societal efforts is shallow. Individuals who rub shoulders with one another, in present time, can reconcile. Communities across time and space cannot.
We have to see with spiritual eyes and give no place to critical race theory and other popular atheistic philosophies in the church. Except to expose them. People are afraid to come across as unloving, and so we affirm contradictory rhetoric rather explore it deeper to and call people to the truth. We've become so indoctrinated by the world's demand for feelings-validating that we aren't bringing these foolish ideologies into correction with God's word. It's not the loving thing to do. We think it is. The Bible prophesies that even amongst Christians, a "great falling away" must come before the Lord returns, and these sorts of trojan horses in the church are dragging people off into Babylon. The spiritual consequences are dire. (2 These 2:1-3, Prov 3, Ez 16:23 - 43)
The irony of what is currently referred to as "wokeness" is that it blinds its subscribers to the ultimate truth, that there is no peace outside of Christ. All of our human efforts fall incredibly short. God tells us in his word that the just live by faith. (Gal 3:11) We will never be reconciled to one another until we are reconciled to God through Christ Jesus. We aren't that good. Sin gets in the way of even our best efforts. Sure, there are complexities to many issues. Thank the Lord that the gospel is simple. That his law is simple. And we have a duty to roll it out, unapologetically.
It is Christlike to come to the aid of desperate, hurting people with practical help and the truth. If our hearts are regenerated by faith in what Jesus did for us as sinners, we want to support anyone in need, whether we agree with them or not. We are all broken and in equal need of grace. Christ died for us while we were still sinners, after all (Romans 5:8) . He didn't wait for us to get our act together. This grace means speaking the truth, even if it offends. The Bible tells us that God's word is foolishness to those who are perishing (1 Cor 1:18). We are to love and serve even our enemies and also be alert to these things, lest we further a wicked agenda we don't mean to. We aren't called to compromise the gospel for the sake of social dignity.
So, we talked about how the black serpent that attacked me in my dream is twisting what the world is seeing about what is going on and is strangling with fear. Business for him, as usual. He is creating division and hatred so that a new world order that promotes peace and unity will be accepted - a new world order, budding now as The Great Reset, according to the World Economic Forum. A new world order that boasts in the wisdom of man and denies the things of God. A collectivist, God-hating world is emerging.
If we go to the UN website and look at its goals for 2030, we might think it looks nice until we compare it with the book of Revelation, Matthew 24, and other globalist end times prophecies in the Bible. 1 Thess. 5 tells us what is upon us: “While people are saying, ‘peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
Begin to notice the refrain, "peace and security" in the world around us. Specifically, in the Middle East, where much of biblical prophecy develops. Those who subscribe to spirit of the age will condemn Christians because our striving for righteous living confronts tightly-held sinful desires masquerading as righteousness. Inso far as it doesn't cause us to partake in sin, we are to love all with the long-suffering patience of our God. He commands this of us, because "while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Rom.5:8)
Yes, there is division in the world because of our sinful human nature. But the most important division that exists is the gap that sin has put between God and humanity. The real division is the word of the Lord against the lies of a world that thinks it can flourish without the God of the Bible (Luke 12). The building blocks of this mystery Babylon are global efforts to unite the world - the world that rejects God by rejecting his Son. His Word. Babylon will fall. It always has. (Jer. 51).
It is amazing news that this world is not about this world! It is about God's glory. And the Kingdom of Heaven. There is no peace and security outside of Christ.
The division and oppression that we're seeing in the world is not about politics. It's about Israel, and all who are grafted into it by faith in Christ. The underlying play of both witting and unwitting pawns of evil is to persecute and oppress God's chosen people.
Satan's attempt to oppress the church - the bride of Christ, is a futile attempt to prevent what God is birthing: The Kingdom of Heaven. God said, "In those days, I will pour out my Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." (Acts 2:17) God’s people operate in the power of the Holy Spirit, and Satan does not want God’s people gathering physically together, because this makes war against his kingdom. Every flaming dart that he sends our way returns to him like a hundred-fold boomerang. He can't get at God, so he lashes out at God's people, Isreal, and those who are grafted into his family tree by faith. Ultimately, he and those of the world who follow him by rejecting Christ, ensnare themselves.
If we are heeding the call of scripture to "watch", we will see that momentum is building for the one-world-government, prophesied in the Bible. It will promise to heal the world. It is written that the earth will not be healed until the day of the Lord, when he returns to judge sin and make all things new with his bride, the church. The globalist plan to heal earth outside of Christ will ultimately pave the way for the antichrist, according to 1 Thessalonians 2. He will arise as a hero or “messiah” to win the allegiance of humanity who want him heal the broken world. And all who follow him will remain under condemnation.
We know from God's forewarning that the long-term trajectory of the earth is not going uphill. We can rejoice. This is a part of God's good plan for the kingdom of heaven. The reception of the antichrist and the united world system that this figure will implement requires that he will have unprecedented global problems to solve. God will allow these threats to humanity to turn people to himself and to weed out those who seek other ways of healing the earth apart from Christ. These are testing times that God uses to separate the wheat from the tares. (Matt 13)
People laughed at Noah for building the ark. Even as the warned-about rain began to fall, they continued sneering, "where is God's flood?" That is, until the rain picked up and the waters rose high. They banged on the door. But it was too late. Just as people mocked him, people will mock our ark, Jesus Christ. They will scof, "Where is the promise of His coming?” as they follow their desires (2 Peter 3). Suddenly, Jesus will return like a thief in the night to "throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:42) God's word says that the days of Noah will repeat themselves. (Matt 24) Part of this means the mingling of Satan's seed with man. Please seek discernment in regards to the "gene therapy" that is these so-called-vaccines.
When we see the signs that we are told to watch for, we know that the door of the ark is beginning to close. The church is God's means of grace to a drowning world, and we should not use his sovereignty as an excuse not to extend the truth to everyone. It's likely that there is an idol of comfort beneath that way of thinking. I know, because I have passed up opportunities to do what God saved me for out of fear. Out of a greater love for myself, ultimately, than for God and the eternal destination of someone he loves. We can be both bold and gentle, rejoicing that God is glorified even in rejection, because it fulfills prophecy and paves the way for his ultimate justice.
God is allowing us to be brought low in the world as a grace, so that we will call out to him, and be raised up as emboldened ambassadors of his Kingdom. The implementation of what the Bible refers to as "the beast" system of a new world order requires that the world is first oppressed by things like pandemics, famines, pestilence, natural disasters and wars. These will weaken people to readily receive the antichrist and his solution, especially after the retainer of the church is removed at the rapture. God's plan for showcasing his glory requires that we trust in his allowance of these sorrows. (Romans 9, Isaiah 13, Matt 24, Mark 14) People will either harden their hearts towards the Lord because of what will come to pass, or they will hearken after him.
The good news is that even the bad news is good news, because a good God is in control.
The oily slickness of the serpent in my dream is important. It reminded me of something that had come up out of the depths of the ocean. The Bible says that sea is where the antichrist will emerge from. (Rev 13:1) I believe that this pandemic, and others to soon come, will set the stake to usher him in as a savior.
For many years I had a split-second dream about a tsunami. It was terrifying. When I asked God to please take it away, I heard in my spirit, "Stand firm. Brace yourself". I never had the dream again.
The ocean is a biblical symbol of God’s judgement upon the world. This is why when His Kingdom comes, "There will no more sea". (Rev 21:1)
There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among the nations, bewildered by the roaring of the sea and the surging of the waves. Luke 21:25
At the start of the pandemic, I was also given a dream about a women hysterically yelling at me on my doorstep, calling me a murderer. She was waving a passport with a world map, full of badges and stamps and accusing me of wanting people to die. She also accused me of not wanting to help starving kids in Africa. I calmly looked down at my hand. I also was holding a passport. When I opened it up, it was empty.
*Update since original post: actual badges have just shown up in Israel and more. Links below.
The significance of this dream was confirmed a year later when global citizenship and green passports showed up, notably, in Israel. And, when God put the United Nations webpage in front of my face. Recently, I heard a pearl-clutching neighbor angrily saying to someone that anyone who doesn't get vaccinated is responsible for killing people. Factually, the variants are coming out of areas with the most vaccinated people, not the least. Interestingly enough, I recently had a doctor at a walk-in clinic in Canada ask if I was vaccinated before inquiring why I was there. Even though it's not her business, I said no, and she got angry and lectured me. When I kindly asked her to please help me with my issue, she briskly said, "I don't think I can help you" and reached for the door.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 highlights the pattern unfolding around us."In the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power."
The Lord says that the world calls good, evil, and evil, good. (Isaiah 5:20) The new world order, according to the Bible, will display humanistic efforts, much like the UN goals for ending poverty. Much like the angry woman in my dream waving her passport. It is in the striving for peace in the new Abrahamic Accord. It condemns Christians as the evil ones. And those churches who fornicate with this system, God is clear, refuse the passport to the Kingdom of Heaven. The one stamped by the blood of Jesus.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Without following his narrow way of peace through salvation, we are destined for futility in our pursuit of it. There is no neutral. We are either with Christ or in service to the kingdom of darkness. Leading up to the coming Kingdom of Heaven, the earth "groans" in "labor" pains. Disruptions of peace. God's word says that "there will be wars and rumors of wars, but do not be alarmed, the end is not yet." Matthew 24 explains that these events are birthing contractions that will increase, leading up to the deliverance of God's people when our redemption is made full. But the emphasis is in not being alarmed.
Revelation 12 points to a sign in the sky of a woman in labor, delivering God's people, which appears to have passed recently (link below). Like with a woman in labor whose water breaks, God's waters of judgment will break at the time of the deliverance of the saints. The enormous tsunami is a symbol for the magnitude and suddenness of God's wrath upon the earth. The tsunami also represents the aggression of the enemy upon the church, which God coordinates as a part of his plan to advance his kingdom. Isaiah 59:19 says, "So shall they fear the name of the LORD where the sun sets, and His glory where it rises. For He will come like a raging flood, driven by the breath of the LORD."
When my husband had the end-times dream that I mentioned earlier, there was also a tsunami heading towards us on a beach. It seemed to rise from an impact into the ocean. When it reached us at the shore, it evaporated, and we were raptured up to be with the Lord as a great black mountain arose from the clouds. The sky was churning with war and what looked like red and white stars in a dog fight. (Rapture verses: Acts 8:39; 2 Cor 12:2, 4; 1. Thess 4:17; Rev 12:5)
After his dream, we located this scene in Revelation 12 about the rapture, the beast system and the tribulation:
"Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back."
The imposing black mountain coming forth from the clouds symbolizes God's law and judgement. Mount Sinai was where Moses received the stone tablets with God's Ten Commandments. It was burnt black with fire as the Lord descended upon it. Mount Ararat is where Noah's ark was found after God judged the world in the flood.
In addition, Isaiah 4:5 says, "Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy." This is referring to the remnant, last days Christians who will flee in the great tribulation to escape the persecution of the beast system. (Matt 24:16) It is evident in scripture that the massive, appearing black mountain in my husband's dream represents God. A judgement of fire for the world, and a refuge of protection for the saints. He remarked that he was awestruck at the sight of this mountain, above all else that was going on.
We later heard the same dream from a brother after seeking the Lord about it. Both dreams came about as the result of wives secretly praying for confirmation about the times we are in, which I thought was a funny wink from the Lord. In each dream, each husband was yelling to warn his wife about the tsunami and rising mountain, but we wives, simply carried on with washing. In each dream, each wife was in water. In our brother's dream, his wife was in the shower. In my husband's, I was wading in the ocean. We believe that this symbolizes the bride of Christ who is "washed" in Christ's righteousness through faith and is untroubled by what is happening. God will deliver us from the day of trouble. We need to trust in him and occupy until the day, whenever it comes.
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church." Eph 5:24-25
There is no peace like Christ's peace when we strive to live holy through trust in Jesus.
You can imagine the hysteria that the rapture of the church, and of all the children and babies of the world, will throw the remaining world into -- how this chaos will be used by the antichrist, who will rise at that time to implement the beast system. God promises to deliver and reward tribulation saints who are "left behind" to suffer the beast system -- those who God leads into truth while he hands the world who doesn't want him over to a "strong delusion." (2 Thess.) If you are reading this during the tribulation, it wasn't aliens that disappeared us, incase you are noting the sudden rise in UFO reports in the media.
We are required by God to spread the gospel, just like every other time in history. I hope this will spur someone on to be even more diligent in this calling, as it has me. Bride of Christ, we must not grow complacent between contractions. We need to warn people so that they can come to repentance and receive forgiveness. We also need to repent ourselves of any grievous way in us -- specifically of our fornication with the world and this rising beast system. The next contraction will come, and they will get closer together, as time progresses. (1 Thess. 4:17) “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.... as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.” (1 Peter 3:9) The bride of Christ is commanded to diligently keep the oil in our lamps lit for the bridegroom, who will return suddenly for a bride who is faithfully waiting for him. (Matt 25)
Even in our human nature, we can understand why a bridegroom would reject an unfaithful bride. It is his great love for each of us that incites his jealousy. He blesses the obedient because of their love for Jesus. He reveals his beauty to those who follow him. His dazzling perfection diminishes the sparkle of sin, revealing it for what it really is: greater love of self and the world than of God. Jesus said, “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done." (Rev 22:12) John 14:21 explains that those who love God keep his commandments.
This is not to be confused with keeping commandments to earn the love of God. That is works-based salvation. That is not grace, and it's not biblical. Until the day of the Lord, our fallen human nature wages war against the new person we are in Christ. Holiness is not sinlessness. Its grief over our sin and active reliance on the Holy Spirit to help us change. God's voice of correction to believers is convicting, not condemning. Through faith, the grace of God always helps us back up when we stumble. Christ takes the stumbling block of the law that we can't follow perfectly out of the way when our hearts trust in Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. Our desire for obedience grows stronger than our desire for sin when we have sincerely trusted in the gospel- that Jesus did what we cannot.
Because God is perfect and holy, we are far removed from him because of our sin, the wages of which are death. (Romans 6:23) God gives us his Word out of his love for a world that is perishing because of sin. We like to think of ourselves as "good people," yet God says that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). It is such amazing news that God has said that he will heal and restore the earth when he merges it with Heaven. When he brings his Kingdom. But God wants us to value him above this earth. Because God loves us who he made, he came after us to offer us a part in this restoration of earth and of us to his intended glory. He did it by entering into his creation by becoming a baby in his mother's womb to experience raw humanity and all of its suffering. He lived sinlessly, as fully God and fully man, and died the death that we deserve for our sins. Because Holy God is just, a penalty had to be paid for our sin. Christ paid our bail!
After he was crucified, Jesus rose from the dead before many eye-witnesses, defeated the power of death, sin and hell, and invited anyone who has faith into this victory. The good news is that God looks at us as the perfection of Christ when we believe what he did through faith. We are then no longer children of wrath, serving the devil, but are born of God and our sins are washed clean, as if they never were. He marks us and keeps us until this glorious day when he will make all things new.
This single act of love closes the gap that sin has put between us and a perfect God. All guilt is paid and washed away forever when we simply trust and confess what he did for us. There won't be a single illness or ill-willed person in our eternal kingdom. There won't be pain or suffering or death. God will destroy all sin and disease when the Lord returns to judge and restore the earth. He will be manifestly enthroned in glory, and it will be perfect. It will reflect Him. And we will glory with him in eternal bodies that are not corrupted by sin and death.
Our God-given desire for a healed earth intends to direct us towards the eternal healing that will come when God brings his Kingdom of Heaven to earth. The day of the Lord "will come like a thief." (2 Peter 3) After God cleanses the earth of sin with his wrath, he will restore it with his bride (the church) and make it more glorious than our wildest dreams. "No eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived— the things God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Cor. 2:9)
This is an awesome miracle. We must always refresh our humility and love of the person of Jesus with the sobering miracle of the cross. We all have the disease of sin. It's only by God's grace that he has rescued any of us from it. We exhibit gratitude by sacrificing our own lives to serve him well, boldly declaring Jesus to all, and with joy.
I am always moved by God's love for humanity when I read the Bible. It makes me almost giddy that he would create us for the sole purpose of extending the riches of his grace, and to exhibit his glory. That God-- GOD literally comes to dwell inside us when we repent and turn to Christ. "Behold" says the Lord, "I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and eat with him, and he with me." (Rev.3:20)
God wants us to know that it is nothing but his immense grace, love, and mercy that closes the gap that sin puts between us and Him. We have faith in a person, not a set of rules or rituals or works. It's about a relationship with Jesus. When the disciples asked, “Lord, what must we do to attain salvation?” He said, “Believe in the one He has sent.” (John 6:29) There's nothing we can do to earn it. Its by grace alone, through faith alone.
Many reject the gospel because they only think about what they might have to give up to follow Christ. The world thinks that God's law is oppressive. It couldn't be more wrong. They don't know that like any good father, our Creator set boundaries, not just for our protection, but for our ultimate joy. "No good thing does he withhold from those who love him and whose walk is blameless" (Psalm 84:11). We are to exercise self-control by walking in obedience, but God does not deprive his followers at all! "You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." (Psalm 16:11) I testify personally, that the law comes with the blessing of unshakeable joy that makes every hardship bearable. And even joyful. The Holy Spirit comes to make a home inside us when we trust in Jesus and helps us desire holiness above sin. It's a total miracle. Nothing in this world can beat an intimate and personal relationship with the living God.
This is why we await Christ's return. Christians aren't earth-hating escapists wanting to exit hardship. We just love Jesus so much that we look forward to our wedding with Christ and to receiving our inheritance in full! We want to see a healed earth. And we who are in Christ, will. But, Christ is the treasure far more precious than anything about this world. We don't have to wait until eternity to start enjoying the blessing of his presence.
We can rejoice no matter what circumstance we find ourselves in. No matter what things look like, sin has lost. God has no problems. Only plans. Everything is running right on time, and will continue to. The war against death and darkness was won at the cross on calvary. Let us choose the side of certain victory. If we have even just a mustard seed of faith in Jesus Christ, we are on the side of power. We can ask him to make us “wise as serpents and gentle as doves” as we prepare for the day of the Lord by drawing ever nearer to He who loves and calls us. (Matt. 10, 17:20)
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Rev. 12:11)
If you haven't trusted in Jesus, call on Him today. "If you confess with your mouth that "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10)
No matter what we have done, we can repent and be lovingly scooped into the bosom of the victorious God, Jehovah, Almighty Yahweh, now and for all eternity.
If you have received Christ at some point in your life and have wandered, come down from the steps of Babylon and into the arms of your first love. Be renewed by his amazing grace. Ask for wisdom. Be revived in his life-giving book.
If we are saved, we are qualified, empowered and commissioned to share this good news. God says, "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation!" (Isaiah 52:7)
Do you have beautiful feet?
