“FOR WHEN THEY SAY PEACE AND SAFETY”….[Donald J. Trump: America’s Last Stand, PART TWO]

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and THEY shall not escape” – 1 Thessalonians 5:3

There’s one thing that I need to make EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAR…….JUST BECAUSE Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence are the President-Elect and Vice-President Elect does NOT mean that we’re not STILL living in the End Times!

Let me repeat: Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence (as good as they may “seem” on the Pro-Life surface) will NOT “cancel out the End Times”, as many Christians now popularly believe.

Folks, we’re still living in some of THE MOST TURBULENT TIMES IN HUMAN HISTORY! In fact, many of OUR sins/national sins, here in the year 2016 and on, would make Sodom & Gomorrah BLUSH! Do you REALLY think the Lord’s gonna pull back his Wrath that’s already BEEN upon this nation FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, and cancel it out completely and decide to PROSPER this nation, INSTEAD?

While I’m sure there was probably a couple of times in the bible when the Lord was “planning” to execute his Wrath on an entire city or nation, but then held back for a bit when the MAJORITY of that city/nation or a prophet of that nation cried out to HIM (for example, the city of Nineveh who IMMEDIATELY repented at the word of the prophet Jonah and also Moses, who interceded for the entire nation of Israel on top of Mount Sinai), 99% of the time, the Lord did NOT “cancel out or delay his Wrath”.

While 2 Chronicles 7:14 says the following: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”, do you REALLY think that ENOUGH CHRISTIANS HAVE REPENTED AND SOUGHT TO **TRULY** HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND SEEK THE LORD’S FACE, WHILE HE MAY STILL BE SPIRITUALLY FOUND?

Cause the truth is, today, in the year 2016, most of us are (quite sadly) too busy on our ipads, iphones, social media, and the like. We don’t really have TIME to pray and/or read the bible (as a whole) but we have TIME to do plenty of OTHER things (go out to eat, go to the movies, sleep, spend time with our families, read a novel for leisure, travel to see a friend, etc.), am I right?

In fact, when’s the last time YOU fasted? The BIBLICAL WAY? Washed your face, anointed your forehead with olive oil, FASTED (that means, to have NO FOOD for a period of time — anywhere from 6 hours to 3 days, depending on the “health abilities” and “Lord’s specific will” of a person — though water/etc. is allowed), DIDN’T TELL A SOUL and PRAYED FOR UNDERSTANDING/BIBLICAL INSIGHT from the Lord?

Heck, when’s the last time “I” myself did that, even? Up until most recently, it had been awhile (for me). And only this most RECENT time did I ever attempt to try to do it the “biblical way”. And once more, I even “failed” in the NOT TELLING A SOUL part, since I “accidentally” told a coworker that I was attempting to do a biblical fast and how “hard” it was and how “tempted” I was to start eating things, especially when a migraine head-ache set in, halfway through………

And then I started getting really sick from not eating and felt as though I had to “break my fast” and eat something, so that I wouldn’t faint or pass out. BUT DOES JESUS CHRIST ACCEPT *EXCUSES* WHEN IT COMES TO BREAKING A FAST? I doubt it. Which is why I’ll have to try even harder NEXT TIME……..sigh………….In fact, many others out there also face the same “temptations” to “break their fast” and probably say a prayer along the lines of, “Lord, please give me the strength” and then dive into a thing of nachos/etc. when they feel as though their “growling/sore tummy” can’t take it any longer!

But that’s my whole entire POINT, here……For if I myself have been “slack” on prayer and fasting lately (the “biblical way”), just think of how many OTHER “Christians” and “Messianic Jews” have been. And then, further out from there, just think of how SLACK we’ve been on “prayer & fasting” (the BIBLICAL WAY), AS A NATION. Do we see where I’m going with this, folks?

People today (as a whole) are SO BLIND (SPIRITUALLY!) They can name you the latest movies, celebrities, news articles or videogames, etc., but yet, they oftentimes can’t tell you the name of Abraham’s nephew, what biblical prophet Nimrod was related to, the difference between OT Saul and NT Saul, the difference between OT Joseph and NT Joseph, if John the Baptist was an OT or NT biblical prophet, etc. or even name off HALF of the list of 10 commandments….

And that’s my point. We (as a whole) don’t have TIME for Jesus but we have TIME for OTHER “hobbies” and “activities”, am I right? In other words, we’ve become likened onto (as a whole) a BIBLICALLY ILLITERATE NATION! And our spiritual states, PERSONALLY? Imagine what the COLLECTIVE SPIRITUAL STATE IS of this country……NATIONALLY!

To be frank, we’re not in a “good spot”, folks (spiritually speaking). NOT BY A LONG SHOT! We (as a nation — and even as a collective GLOBAL WORLD) are in what the archangel Michael once called to me during a near-suicide experience “THE RED ZONE”. That simply means our collective HEART is as far from God/Jesus Christ as can possibly be!

And as the years and “collective social culture” wears on, our collective HEART’s becoming EVEN FURTHER drawn away from Him! We’re in a scary place, folks (spiritually speaking). People need to WAKE UP from their spiritual slumber before it’s too late!

We (as a nation — and even as a world) have BEEN ASLEEP (spiritually speaking). We’ve been FAR too busy chasing after “human social ideals” and “politically correct/PC Culture”, than chasing after Jesus! And believe me, this nation (and this world) is soon gonna pay the price!

When Jesus ADMONISHED his disciples for “falling asleep” in the Garden of Gethsemane while he prayed, that was a CLEAR foreshadowing of all the Lord’s people (as individuals AND as a collective whole) that would be spiritually “falling asleep” during the END TIMES!

“But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers” – Luke 12:45-46

“But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” – Matthew 24: 48-51

And UNLIKE the ancient biblical times when the disciples still had so-called time to repent, we do NOT have that sort of “collective time”, folks! Tomorrow is NEVER GUARANTEED! (Heck, even 5 minutes of your life from now is NEVER GUARANTEED!) Therefore, REPENT, and SPIRITUALLY WAKE UP YOUR SINFUL, DEAD, SLEEPING SOUL, for the ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD/JESUS CHRIST WILL SOON BE AT HAND!

And ya want to know what? For MOST people, Jesus’s 2nd arrival upon Earth will come AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT! (In other words, when they VERY, VERY LEAST EXPECT IT):

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief” – 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” – Revelation 16:15

Matthew 24:36 – “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only

Revelation 3:3 – “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee”

Matthew 24:44  “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh”

But about the most troubling thing YET is how many “Christians” and even some “Messianic Jews” or “Jewish-leaning Christians” out there are now debating amongst themselves if Trump could be the “Modern-Day King Cyrus”. But like I said in my previous post on Trump, rather he is or isn’t is BESIDES the point! The POINT folks, is that we’re STILL living in the End Times and need to spiritually PREPARE ourselves for what lays ahead, in the course of global human history!

Also: Try to think about it THIS WAY: People say that Satan and his demons never say anything of “truth”. But that’s not true. They’ll speak “little snippets” of truth or do some “good things” here and there, in order to DECEIVE PEOPLE! For example, The Roman Catholic Church does some EXCEPTIONAL Pro-Life campaigning and protests (if I don’t say so myself)….However, its overall Catholic “theology” (infant baptism, bowing down to idols and images/etc.) is leading many naive/unfortunate souls TO HELL! Do you see how the Devil works, folks? How he inserts just a “small” bit of truth and mixes it up in a BAG OF LIES, in order to DECEIVE PEOPLE?

And to me, it would rather seem that he’s working behind the scenes of both the Pro-Abortion lobby AND in the seemingly “Pro-Life” new gov’t about to take shape. Why? Because if he can successfully deceive Christians into thinking/saying: See? We won! We have a Pro-Life majority now in Gov’t”, that he can ALSO successfully deceive them into thinking that Trump’s a “Modern-Day Cyrus“.

And if Roe V. Wade ever gets overturned? WATCH OUT…….for I believe that’ll be the PRIME VEHICLE that Satan will choose to DECEIVE THE MASSES! Now, don’t get me wrong. Over-turning Roe V. Wade would be a GREAT VICTORY for the Lord Jesus Christ, his people and the hosts of heaven! But it can also lead to potential dangers of deception…

The bible speaks of the End Times in Israel……how…..when they “think” they are “safe and secure” and have “brokered peace”, that they’ll become TOO TRUSTING and LET THEIR GUARD DOWN! And folks…….that’s EXACTLY what’s gonna happen with many Christians/Messianic Jews when THEY let their guards down because: Hey, Planned Parenthood got defunded! Roe v. Wade got over-turned!”

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? And I’m not saying 100% those 2 things will happen, but IF/WHEN they do, or when OTHER similar like things occur, I know in my heart and soul that Christians/Messianic Jews are gonna be letting their guards down, just because they “think” they’ve won! And that’s EXACTLY what I mean…..we’re in a VERY dangerous, vulnerable spot, folks! WE HAVE TO BE ON OUR BEST SPIRITUAL GUARD, AT ALL TIMES AND IN ALL PLACES!

“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

Down below, Evangelist Anita Fuentes of EMOAF Ministries discusses and explains how “Judgement is Not Postponed”. She explains some things on this topic better than I do, which is why I decided to post her video down below. 

Mark of the Beast: Coming To A Town Near YOU, Part ONE

Rather you’re a believer in Jesus Christ/Yeshua or not, ONE thing is certain……bible prophecy’s now happening in today’s world at BREAKNECK SPEED!

Don’t believe me? Here are just a FEW bible prophecies, complete with headlines:

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/signs-of-last-days-bible-prophecy-fulfilled/

The bible spoke of a time when the LAND would “mourn”, when human hearts would “wax cold”, when people would call good (in the “true biblical sense”) evil and evil (that WHICH the bible calls “evil”) good and also most specifically of a time when THE BEAST (i.e. Satan/Satan’s Geo-Political Frontman) would rise to power.

Now….For those of you not familiar with the bible, bible prophecy, AND/OR the book of Revelation in the New Testament, let me describe to you what’s gonna happen in the VERY near future:

There is chaos and “financial collapse” happening all over the globe. No-one can deny this. [Note: Argentina and Greece are just a PREVIEW of what is to come……even to DEVELOPED countries…] And someday soon, things are going to get bad…..really, really bad [financially and otherwise].

In fact, the bible hints that things will become SO BAD (financially), that ALL the countries of the world will likely have to elect or appoint a one world gov’t leader to “get a financial handle on it all”. And the way he will do this (the bible says it’s a he) is by developing a ONE WORLD CURRENCY, ONE WORLD RELIGION, AND ONE WORLD GOV’T.

“Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Wait there just a minute! All the religions of the world will NEVER AGREE to THAT”, some might say. But yet, the bible says they WILL. How? By deception on Satan’s part. See, Satan will be the one who GIVES this one world gov’t leader his power and the power to PERSUADE people.

And this man, this one world gov’t leader soon to arrive on the scene, is one and the same. He’ll try to make the Christians think he’s Jesus Christ, the Muslims think he’s Allah, the Buddhists to think he’s Maitreya or the 5th Buddha, the Jews to think he’s their “long-awaited Messiah” and the list goes on and on. 

Let me put this differently: The Christian Anti-Christ IS the “global end times messiah”/THE BEAST talked about in Revelation! And IS the “false messiah” of the world that all the world’s religions are waiting on! [Only, the world’s religions (as a whole) DON’T KNOW he’s a false messiah. By the time they DO figure it out, for many of them, it’ll be TOO LATE and their fates will already be sealed FOR ETERNITY! ;(]

Therefore, BECAUSE all the major world religions are awaiting a “messianic type figure”, it will be no problem at’tall FOR this one world gov’t leader to convince people that he IS the “messiah”. And we know from the bible that ALL people who’s names aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by this man/this false messianic figure who gets his power from Satan.

“What’s the Lamb’s Book of Life?”, some might ask. Answer: It is Jesus’s personal/spiritual record book of ALL those souls who believe in him, trust him, love him and OBEY HIM in any and ALL things! Those who believe and are baptized in the Holy Spirit of Truth! Those who have FULLY repented of their sins, etc. In other words, those that the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua is PROUD to call his servants! And he will profess those peoples’ names to the Heavenly Father and to the Holy Angels!

HOWEVER….Those whose names are NOT found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by THE BEAST/THE ANTICHRIST. He will have the power of PERSUASION. He will be very likeable and popular. He will seem to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He’ll even perform FALSE MIRACLES, like bring fire down from heaven and bring life to an “image” of the Beast!

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed Revelation 13:13-15

 

And BECAUSE of that, He’ll have MANY, MANY, **MANY** people fooled, into thinking he’s “God”.

And AMIDST all the world chaous, and global financial meltdown, he’ll even “propose” a new “global financial system” that APPEARS to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. And “unsaved” people will fall for it, hook, line and sinker………..even many self-professed “Christians” themselves (YES, IT’S TRUE!)

Revelation 13:16-17 says: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

Translation? This “mark” will be REQUIRED of ALL man, women and children, in order to be able to buy or sell. And WITHOUT this “mark” in their RIGHT HAND or FOREHEAD, they will NOT be able to buy or sell. And the book of Revelation says that ALL people who TAKE this “MARK” will be thrown into the LAKE OF FIRE…….FOR ETERNITY!

I can just picture it right now….”Christian” and/or “Messianic Jewish” families who’ve followed Jesus Christ their WHOLE LIVES…..only to start worrying at the VERY, VERY LAST MINUTE (when the GLOBAL FINANCIAL COLLAPSE happens) about how they’re going to feed their families and their young children….They really DON’T want to get the Mark (in their hearts) and they KNOW it’s wrong (eternally) but they figure Jesus would understand and forgive THEM for taking the Mark since they don’t truly worship the beast in their hearts & since they ONLY want to feed their children, nothing more (or so they “reason” with themselves, anyways)…….

They think there’s no way in HECK that Jesus would condemn THEM for such spiritual atrocities. But, they are VERY, VERY SADLY mistaken! For Jesus Christ will say to them on the Day of Judgement, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23) OUCH!

Because in Jesus’s eyes, there’s NO EXCUSE for sin! NONE! It doesn’t matter WHY a person would choose to take the Mark of the Beast. Just THAT they did. It is a MAJOR sign of disobedience to God and a MAJOR slap in God’s face cause it’s like saying PERSONALLY to Jesus: “Jesus….? I don’t trust you to provide for me and my family during our financial time of need. Just like I don’t trust you to feed my young children. I NEED to take the Devil’s Mark, in order to be able to feed my children. You understand, don’t you?”

JESUS ISN’T HAVING IT!!!!! You take the Mark, you DIE….spiritually…….and there’s NO HOPE FOR YOU, IF YOU DO! Because it’s IN that very moment where you choose The Mark or choose to die FOR Christ instead that will ultimately determine if YOUR name gets written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I’m SERIOUS!

Revelation even speaks of AN ANGEL that tries to go around warning people on the Earth NOT to get the Mark of the Beast:

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a LOUD voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Revelation 14: 9-11)

And people, THE MARK is NOT about food/buying/selling, it’s about WORSHIP! So when a person gets the Mark of the Beast to feed their families, they’re receiving the Beast’s Mark of WORSHIP! Plus who’s to say that it won’t IMMEDIATELY change a person’s brain chemistry into worshiping the beast? Just sayin’.

So……what happens to the people that REFUSE to worship the beast and/or take his “Mark”, you might ask? Revelation 13:15 says they will be killed. So, in short, when it comes down to the wire, it’s either gonna be take the mark and be damned by Jesus Christ FOR ETERNITY. Or REFUSE the mark and DIE. There IS no other way, folks!

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” Revelation 13:15

But take heart. Jesus says in John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”

Jesus ALSO says in John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”

In other words, to DIE for Christ is GAIN but to DENY CHRIST in any way, shape or form is to BECOME CHRIST’S ETERNAL ENEMY!

Think about that for awhile. Let that sink in……

Also meditate on the FOLLOWING:

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and **FEW** there be that find it” – (Matthew 7:13-14)

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to “New Jerusalem” (talked about in Chapters 21-22 in Revelation in the New Testament) while MILLIONS UPON BILLIONS are CONDEMNED to the LAKE OF FIRE….FOR ETERNITY!

“Why so many?”, one may ask and the answer is THIS: Because VERY few people OBEY Christ! It’s not JUST about “believing” in Him but also OBEYING Him! For example, the Muslims believe in Christ but they don’t OBEY Him! For IF they DID truly “obey Him”, they would worship Jesus Christ AS the Messiah, and NOT as some “lowly messenger”. That’s just ONE example, there.

Another example might be a “Catholic” that REFUSED to stop worshiping “idols” (something that God/Jesus EXPRESSLY forbids!) And yet others might be all the “lukewarm” Christians out that never bothered to help those in need, etc., OR the Christians/Messianics in above theoretical example who took the “Mark”, in order to be able to feed their family, etc. Or those who’ve followed other religions, didn’t believe in Christ or just HATED Christ in general (i.e. Satanists, etc.)

But the ONE thing that ALL people who take the Mark have in common is that they (in true effect) ETERNALLY DENY CHRIST the VERY MOMENT they receive THE MARK OF THE BEAST. But it sure won’t LOOK like the Mark of The Beast, all menacing/ominous and stuff. It will probably LOOK innocent to most people. “Oh, it’s just a one world gov’t mark or symbol, no big”, most people will say. My guess is that The Mark will be some sort of symbol for “global unity” but that’s ALSO associated with the number 666, somehow. But again, who knows. 

And I can’t stress this ENOUGH, folks! Taking the Mark has NOTHING to do about buying or selling (though, if one wants to be able to buy or sell, they WILL have to take the Mark, no exceptions!) It has EVERYTHING to do with WORSHIP. The Beast wants WORSHIP. And if people won’t worship him willfully, he wants them to do it forcefully, by force, by ANY means necessary, really. 

Are YOU ready to give up your life for Christ? If someone told you tomorrow “take The Mark or DIE“, would YOU be willing to die? If not, why? Because folks, let me tell ya something. If YOU’RE not ready to DIE for Christ when the time comes, YOU need to pray to GET READY for when that time comes. Because that time’s gonna be here sooner than you or even I, know it. MARK MY WORDS!
