Rapture takes place during your religious festivals

Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

This verse is a very powerful prophecy. So far we have seen that every festival from the Old Testament has been prophetic concerning the coming of Jesus Christ, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and outpouring of the Spirit on the church. We can also easily say that the feast of Atonement and the Feast of weeks will also be prophetic. Because of this I have been searching the scriptures to find a religious festival that would be prophetic for the rapture. I now think that Hanukah and Christmas will also be prophetic.

9 “In that day,” declares the Sovereign Lord, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight. 10 I will turn your religious festivals into mourning and all your singing into weeping. I will make all of you wear sackcloth and shave your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day.

This verse supported the idea that the day of the Lord appears during “your religious festivals”. But it is plural, this is referring to more than one festival. Also these festivals involve singing. There were numerous other reasons why this pointed to Hanukkah, but Hanukkah and Christmas are two religious festivals that come at the same season. Also, although Hanukkah and many of the religious festivals are not particularly noted for singing, Christmas is with Christmas carols being a key tradition to celebrate this holiday. This caroling is done on Christmas eve, December 24th. Now what is quite interesting is that in 2024 Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 24th. Hanukkah is a celebration that lasts 8 days and Christmas is often referred to as the "12 days of Christmas". We also had a solar eclipse in the midst of the festival of Hanukkah, December 14th, 2020. I believe this particular eclipse was prophesied as a sign of the last seven years of this age, the prophet said God would darken the Sun over a land that you do not know.

In 2024 there is a total solar eclipse over the US (April 8th) that makes a cross with the total solar eclipse that was over the US in 2017. As a rule a solar eclipse refers to God's judgement on the world. So it is close to a 7 year spread. Many think that the Day of the Lord began with the great sign in the heaven on festival of Trumpets 2017 and this began the ten years referred to as the ten days of awe.

So I am going to give my interpretation of what God is telling us with all this. God is drawing an X over the US, that is His mark, it belongs to Him. He will judge the US, the wood, hay and stubble will be burned up with fire whereas those who have built with gold, silver and precious stones will get a reward. It will take seven years for God to make this mark. When you bear the name of Jesus you express Him and all that He is. So this is a big deal. This first eclipse went right over Washington DC and was at the same time, but immediately before the Revelation 12 sign. The Revelation 12 sign appeared at the Feast of Trumpets in 2017 and announced the coming of the king and the beginning of the the ten days (years) of awe. This time is referred to as Jacob's trouble. During this time we have had the pandemic, we have had a global shutdown, we have been humiliated in Kabul and war between Israel and Iran has been reignited. We saw a stolen election and a man with demential run the country. According to the Fig tree prophecy the Lord came to the tree after three years and asked why there was no fruit, cut it down. The farmer asked for one more year to dung it. This year in the Jewish calendar is the Dung year. We are coming up on the four year anniversary of the Revelation 12 sign on September 23, 2021. I believe the Lord gave us 4 years to get our house in order and to prepare to meet our God. He drew the X right before this time to remind us that He will snatch His bride out of the coming destruction beforehand. However this destruction will fall hard on Washington DC. The USA is the Great Babylon and she will be burned with fire, stripped naked and devoured by the beast, the one world government. The second part of the X is drawn six and a half years later to indicate the completion of this judgement on the world during the Tribulation. As for this eclipse during Christmas of 2024 that is the middle of the tribulation around the time of the "mid tribulation rapture".

Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

If we are seeing the day approaching we should be assembling together. However, Joel says that the sign that the day is approaching is a pandemic that causes us not to gather together. There is really only one church meeting that is required for us to keep and that is the Lord’s table, this sabbath day for Christians is a celebration of the coronation of Jesus and also of the wedding of Jesus, both of which are part of the shadow of the rapture of the Bride. There are really only two big yearly festivals given to Christians to keep. The first is “Easter” which celebrates the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. That is where our year begins and that is a celebration of new life and new beginnings. This festival coincides with Passover. The second festival is Christmas which is at the end of the year and superficially is a celebration of Jesus birth even though we know that Jesus was not born on this day. Pagan holidays for the resurrection of the Sun were adopted for this celebration. Our year begins with the new birth at Easter and we all look forward to Christmas, the favorite day of the year.

Interestingly I saw that 2 Corinthians a book on the New Testament ministry is all about the festival of Hanukkah. Paul equated the story of Hanukkah with the New Testament ministry. The purpose of this ministry is that the Lord’s will would be done on earth as it is in heaven and that His kingdom would come. Each day of that festival there is more light. We saw the “fulfillment” of this during Hanukkah this year as each day new light concerning the corruption and lies of those in power trying to wipe out the pure worship of God was revealed. But now it seems the gospels are equated with the story of Christmas. Romans is the gospel according to Paul and chapter 8 is the “tip of the spear” when talking about the overcomers, those in the first rapture. I have also seen that Romans 8 tells the Christmas story. It would make a wonderful conclusion to the church age.

Revelation 12:3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems. 4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world;

Isaiah 21:2 A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous man dealeth treacherously, and the destroyer destroyeth.

Jeremiah 4:7 A lion is gone up from his thicket, and a destroyer of nations; he is on his way, he is gone forth from his place, to make thy land desolate, that thy cities be laid waste, without inhabitant.

Jeremiah 6:26 O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation; for the destroyer shall suddenly come upon us.

Jeremiah 48:8 And the destroyer shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed; as Jehovah hath spoken.

Jeremiah 51:56 for the destroyer is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, their bows are broken in pieces; for Jehovah is a God of recompenses, he will surely requite.

Romans 10:1-17 -- Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. 2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. 3 Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 4 Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.

This chapter presents the way of salvation and it begins with the example of the Jewish people. So learn from them, they sought to establish their own righteousness and did not submit to God’s righteousness. If you are zealous for God that is great, but your zealousness needs to be based on a knowledge of Jesus Christ, the righteousness of God. You cannot possibly understand the law unless you know Christ, He is the culmination of the law. What the Lord has done is for everyone who believes, that we may be righteous in Jesus.

5 Moses writes this about the righteousness that is by the law: “The person who does these things will live by them.” 6 But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) 7 “or ‘Who will descend into the deep?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

There are two very different approaches to righteousness with God. In one approach you are assembling a bunch of rules on how you must live in order to establish your own righteousness. In the second approach you are rebuked from this approach. It isn’t about you climbing some mountain, or descending into some pit, Jesus has already been crucified, died and resurrected. Righteousness by faith is not about you doing anything but rather you receive in your heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead. If that word is in your heart then the word “Jesus is Lord” will bubble up within you. You don’t need to hope to fulfill some requirements to be righteous and be saved. No, if you believe that God has already raised Jesus from the dead and if you testify that Jesus is Lord with your own mouth, then you will be saved. It is a promise that you can take to the judgement seat of Christ.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”

We all have experiences where we were put to shame. What happened? I had an experience where the Lord told me to speak something but I refused. Had I not rejected that word but been faithful to speak it as told I would not have been put to shame. Let me use a more worldly example to help people understand this. During a Superbowl, the championship game in the NFL, the entire game had come down to this last few plays. Seattle had the ball on the goal line. If they score they win. The quarterback threw the ball and the defensive back made a truly great play to intercept that ball. This player was a rookie. A few days before the Superbowl they had been in practice and they had been running that exact same play in practice and the coach had been on him about how he was to defend it. He hadn’t done it in practice but here in the game he won the game for them. You take that word, you believe it, you receive it in your heart, and then you act on it. If you do that you will be saved.

12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Stop looking at yourself! You have way too high an opinion of yourself. Your salvation is not dependent on who you are, or who your parents are, or your culture, or what clothes you wear, what songs you like. We are all different, but that does not matter, it is the same Lord who is Lord of all. He is Lord of the kid in the gang, or who grew up on the street or the one with the trust fund. Jesus is the one who richly blesses all who call on Him. If salvation was of you, then you would be the one who would be glorified. Salvation is of Jesus, He is the one who is glorified.

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

This is the part that we can play. We have nothing to do with our own salvation, but we can play a role in bringing the good news to others. Do you want to hear the word of God? Do you want to instill faith in others? Do you want to be a “sent one”, an ambassador of the gospel? That is what you are and what you are doing when you share the good news that Jesus is Lord and that God has raised Him from the dead with others.

16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

What a great revelation. ‘My faith is so weak, so small, I wish I was strong in the faith but I am not.’ Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. If you feel you are weak in the faith then the real problem is that you are not in the word of God. If you are physically weak, then go to the gym. Read the Bible, pray over the Bible, listen to sermons, fellowship with others, sing hymns and songs of worship. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Genesis 41:41 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the [a]river. 2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, well-favored and fat-fleshed; and they fed in the reed-grass. 3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill-favored and lean-fleshed, and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river. 4 And the ill-favored and lean-fleshed kine did eat up the seven well-favored and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke. 5 And he slept and dreamed a second time: and, behold, seven ears of grain came up upon one stalk, [b]rank and good. 6 And, behold, seven ears, thin and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them. 7 And the thin ears swallowed up the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream. 8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the [c]magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

The two cows were born September 20, 2014 and 25th

This indicates the seven years of prosperity comes to an end September 19, 2021 and famine begins September 25th. It was Pharaoh’s dream so I think we use Pharaoh’s calendar.

However, if we translate to the Hebrew calendar the first cow was born 6th month, 26th day. Seven years later is October 2nd, 2021. Seven years after the second cow was born is October 7th, 2021, it is the start of the tribulation and also the Feast of Trumpets.

Genesis 41:25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: what God is about to do he hath declared unto Pharaoh. 26 The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one. 27 And the seven lean and ill-favored kine that came up after them are seven years, and also the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind; they shall be seven years of famine. 28 That is the thing which I spake unto Pharaoh: what God is about to do he hath showed unto Pharaoh. 29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: 30 and there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land; 31 and the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine which followeth; for it shall be very grievous. 32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh, it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. 33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

Romans 10:18-21 You cannot save yourself.

18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

This is a very big prophecy. Isaiah prophesied of this, Jesus said that the gospel would be preached throughout the entire earth and then the end would come, and here Paul reiterates this. This age had a mission, the Lord said “I will build my church”. That was His overarching mission for the age. Within that mission preaching the gospel to the entire earth was a critical component. Right now we are seeing all kinds of protests against governments, they are claiming that the government has not treated them justly. Perhaps it was because of who they were, or where they lived, or the color of their skin, or the money in their bank account. These governments are all corrupt, they have plundered their people, so there is no reconciliation. If they confess the sins and make it right they will have to give all that plunder back. But meanwhile the gospel has been preached throughout the entire earth. The church has been built and has also struggled with this. “There is no Jew nor Gentile, no slave nor free, no male or female.” The righteousness of God is the foundation that we stand on in the church. Didn't everyone hear the gospel? Yes, but not all received it.

19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, “I will make you envious by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.” 20 And Isaiah boldly says, “I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”

This entire chapter on the way of salvation is framed within the context of Israel being rejected. They heard the good news but didn’t accept it. The problem is not that they couldn’t understand it, people with no understanding received it. The problem was not that they weren’t seeking hard enough, people who weren’t seeking at all found Jesus. The problem was not that they didn’t pray enough, asking for a revelation, Jesus revealed Himself to those who didn’t even ask. The problem was envy. They wanted to have their own righteousness. They wanted to be the one who climbed the mountain, the one who went into the pit and climbed out by their own strength. Think about how angry they are that they have studied, and prayed, and sought so hard and yet they have been left far behind by the church that Jesus has built.

21 But concerning Israel he says, “All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.”

To declare that “Jesus is Lord” indicates that you obey Him as Lord. Being baptized is simply one example of this obedience, but our entire Christian life should be one of obeying the Lord’s speaking to us, even if we think we are too smart for that word. Having an attitude that the word that others obey is not something you need to obey is to be obstinate. Disobedient and obstinate both indicate that you are proud and arrogant. “Jesus is Lord” not you. Believe it and speak it and you shall be saved. You let the word come into your heart, get rooted in your heart until it flows right out of your mouth. Do that and you shall be saved.

Let’s make this really simple. The world is a heap of collapse, everyone trying to climb on top of others to get to the top of that heap. For thousands of years human history has been filled with those who want to be called “the greatest”. We have forgotten many of them, and many others had their lives end tragically or violently. In the end none of those people are able to save us. You can call on their name, read their words, it won’t matter, you won’t get saved. We have now come to a moment in history where the entire world will realize we need the savior. We’ll have famines, plagues and wars and to make it even worse we’ll realize that our rulers have played us. They took our jobs, our houses, our money and even our children to make themselves rich. Every empire has ended in a heap of collapse.

So then, if you want to be saved there is one thing you can’t do. Many people talk about the things that you need to do to get saved. You need to pray, yet some people have gotten saved who didn’t pray. You need to seek the Lord, yet some people have gotten saved who weren’t seeking for the Lord. You need to understand the gospel, yet there are people who have been saved who don’t have any understanding. In truth the Lord has already done everything you need, you simply need to receive it. But there is one thing that you can do that will prevent you from being saved. If you seek to have your own righteousness, if you pray to have your own righteousness, if your labor is for your own righteousness. As long as you want to be Lord you will not be able to call “Lord Jesus”. As long as you are envious of Jesus as Lord you won’t be able to receive His words. Your pride and arrogance will make you disobedient and obstinate.

But suppose that isn’t you. You are very happy to receive the work Jesus has done for you and to worship Him as Lord. However, you are weak in the faith, what can you do? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. How much word can you hear? You can listen to hymns and songs of praise. You can listen to sermons. You can fellowship with others. You can read the word. You can be as strong in the faith as you want. You can pray, seek the Lord, and study the word. All of these things can help you grow in grace and become strong in the faith.

“What not to do if you want to be saved”, some will assume there is some big sin. The “unforgivable sin”. So let’s address that. Matthew 12:31 For this reason I say unto you, Every sin and injurious speaking shall be forgiven to men, but speaking injuriously of the Spirit shall not be forgiven to men. 32 And whosoever shall have spoken a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age nor in the coming [one]. The Pharisees had rejected Jesus saying that He cast out demons by the prince of the demons. They were envious of Him. They wanted to have their own righteousness. They wanted to be Lord. As a result they couldn’t hear Him, they rejected Him and they were disobedient and obstinate. This is the one thing you can’t do if you want to be saved.

Psalm 83 Let them be confounded and dismayed that they may know that Jesus Christ is Lord


1 O God, keep not thou silence: Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.


O Lord, look on us for we are calling on You.


2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.


Lord, those that hate you are not hiding anymore. They are puffed up, they are proud, they strut.


3 They take crafty counsel against thy people, And consult together against thy hidden ones.


CRT is crafty counsel. Trying to turn kids into Antifa warriors is crafty counsel. This bioweapon is crafty counsel.


4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.


Lord, Israel, your centerpiece is at the heart of everything going on. They have to first destroy the US to get to Israel. We have a covenant with You, we have a contract that You will save, so we are calling on You, honor your word to us, your people.


5 For they have consulted together with one consent; Against thee do they make a covenant: 6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the [a]Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre: 8 Assyria also is joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah


Lord, the deep state has joined together. The NIH and CCP, Biden and Xi, the FBI and CIA, the CDC and FDA.


9 Do thou unto them as unto Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon; 10 Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth. 11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna; 12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession The habitations of God.


Lord Jesus, this is your church, your possession, your habitation they want to steal.


13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; As stubble before the wind.



O Lord, make them like the drought stricken west that we see on the news. Dry up all their reservoirs, all their lakes. Fill the air with the dust, have them chop down their trees, abandon their crops.


14 As the fire that burneth the forest, And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire, 15 So pursue them with thy tempest, And terrify them with thy storm.



Lord, we call on You. Pursue them like the fires in the West where they must continually retreat from the wall of flames. Create firenados, and terrify them with the storm. With hurricane Ida, with Fred, and Grace, and Nora. Fill the oceans with storms that terrify them.


16 Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.


As the world collapses around them we ask that this would cause them to seek You. To repent and to call on Jesus who is Lord. To confess that they are nothing and can do nothing and that they need your salvation. May your name be glorified.


17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; Yea, let them be confounded and perish;



Lord, put them to shame over this Afghanistan debacle. May we see video clips of everything they said over the last twenty years and put them to shame. May they be dismayed over the arming of the Taliban. Dismayed over forest fires around the world. Dismayed over the glittering sword of the Lord that has left it’s sheath to execute your judgement on the earth. And Lord, confound them on every side. Confound them with the election audits, confound them with the recall votes, confound them with the Epstein investigation, confound them with Afghan witnesses to the CIA crimes, confound those who are compromised with foreign countries or who are secretly working with the globalists or the Satanists.


18 That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth.



Yes, Lord, remember your word that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. We pray that you would remember your word to fulfill it. Amen.

Romans 12:1-10 -- True and Proper worship

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Let’s look at what true and proper worship is.

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Being conformed to the world does not just refer to Hollywood, or Wall Street but also to the religious world. CNN and MSNBC are trying to conform the world to an approved narrative. The world tries to tell Christians what “true and proper” worship is, instead let’s look at what the fellowship of the apostles is.

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

When 70 million Americans are called “deplorable” and “irredeemable” and “chumps” then know that this is not sober judgment. God has distributed to each one of us. In the world the talking heads on CNN want to be able to tell you what to think, that is the world. In the true and proper worship we know that God has distributed to each one, so we need to be open to one another. If you disrespect these 70 million as being “ignorant” or “racists” then you are thinking more highly of yourself than you ought. No doubt we have ignorant people in the US and we have racist people, but when you dismiss 50% of the population with these broad brush judgements you are thinking of yourself more highly than you ought.

4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.


I have been very impressed in this battle against the election fraud how there are many different functions in the body. Pastor Dana Coverstone prophesied about this with his dreams. Others translated those dreams to the Body (Dream Exegesis). Still others have been serving, doing everything necessary to organize and set up these rallies and protests. Still others like Steve Bannon’s war room are there encouraging everyone to stand strong, to “brace yourself” as Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams repeated over and over. This requires that some give, give of their time and their money. Going to these rallies to me is an opportunity to be a living sacrifice. But the politicians are all responding to the phone calls and emails. Calling your representative and asking for justice just like the widow with the unrighteous judge. Some are taking the lead and they need to be diligent. These are the ones who are involved in the lawsuits. I listened to the testimony of one man who spent 25 or 26 hours to meticulously break down election results so that he could analyze them statistically. They are tracking down people to see if they requested ballots, they are checking voter registration records and death records and change of name records. They are taking affidavits from poll workers and those involved in the fraud. Finally there is the matter of showing mercy. There are a lot of people who were peripheral to the fraud, yes they were involved, but they regret it and would like to confess and become a witness. Show mercy to these ones, welcome them and encourage them.

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

This is true and proper worship. You cannot wink at sin and still have “true and proper worship”. You cannot ignore evil and still have “true and proper worship”. These rallies are not about a man, they are about clinging to what is good. They often chant “hold the line” but that means we are not going to give up on our constitution and our rights to a free and fair election, free speech, and freedom of worship.

10 Be devoted to one another in love.

I did not understand why people voted for Trump, but on the other hand I did understand why people didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. But the Bible says to be devoted to one another in love. So I asked them and I listened so I could understand. NAFTA took their jobs and the mortgage crisis took their homes. It made sense to me.

Honor one another above yourselves.

They figured out what was going on before I did. In the stock market the way you take over companies is to drive the price down, not up. This pandemic will enable them to gain control. It has been a tremendous boon to Amazon.com. Zoom has had a huge increase due to this shutdown. The internet has been a huge beneficiary of the school shutdowns and forcing every kid in the country to sit in front of laptops on the internet. People call this “the great reset”. You will be required to get the vaccine in order to take part in many different activities. They will track this by injecting a small RFID chip into you. This is the mark of the beast. The stimulus plans to keep the economy running during the shutdowns will bankrupt the US and cause us to move to a worldwide digital currency. If you don’t see this as the explanation for everything that is going on then you must conclude that they are acting irrationally, foolishly, and willfully damaging their own country.

Romans 12:11-21 Overcome Evil with Good

11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

Stand up for righteousness! Brace yourself! Do everything that you do as unto the Lord.

12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,faithful in prayer.

I am full of hope. I see what is happening in the US right now to be the fulfillment of what happened in the time of Esther with Haman preparing to wipe out the people of God. Imagine what would happen if they could steal elections, pack the supreme court, and outlaw the gospel. There are already places around the earth calling the gospel “hate speech”. China has already put Xi’s portrait in every Christian church sanctuary and they are required to teach from his writings and to sing the national anthem in their worship. They tried to make it illegal for people of God to express their faith (the baker who was required to make a special cake for a same sex wedding, but ultimately won in the Supreme court). I also feel we need to be patient in this battle. Right now I see them in their walled cities hiding behind their walls hoping the armies of Israel will go away. But as the evidence of fraud, corruption, treason and obstruction of justice comes out we can prosecute them and convict them. We just need to stay strong in prayer, believe in the Lord and know that it is not by might or by power but by His Spirit that we will overcome.

13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

I have been to five rallies and in every one you see these ones who persecute us. They scream “fascist” at us, they attack the elderly and women and children. In Atlanta they massed into a group of about twenty with homemade armor and baseball bats. Do not be baited into cursing back at them. Instead bless them.

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

It is a joy to associate with the “deplorables” and the “irredeemable” and the “chumps”. I don’t see myself as a “Trump supporter” because I serve the Lord Jesus. But I do see myself as someone willing to associate with those of low position. I see my worship involving being joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

These are easy mistakes to make. Look at the BLM and ANTIFA protests. They have stated that they are justified in repaying evil for evil. They have not been careful at all to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. Right in the eyes of everyone, not just your little group. They have taken revenge. Instead in these rallies there are those holding up the word of God as the light, they hold up Jesus as king of kings, we pray, and we sing hymns. We trust in the Lord to repay. We made a covenant with God 400 years ago with the Mayflower compact. We are honoring that covenant to be a light on a hill, the New Jerusalem as a testimony to the whole world and we expect Him to also honor that covenant.

20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

This is why I have repeatedly called on Joe Biden to honor his word to unify and heal us. Stand up for righteousness that all these contested states would have a complete audit so that the whole country can trust in the election and see that you are truly their president.

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Whoa! True and proper worship is to overcome evil with good! They have shut down church services, so let’s have true and proper worship in the streets on the sabbath!

Romans 13 -- The day is near

1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

This has been a wonderful lesson this last year. When George Floyd died it sparked all kinds of riots and looting, yet now we know that he died of a drug overdose and there was no physical evidence from the coroner that the policeman kneeling on him killed him. We also know that his behavior from the drugs was why he had to be restrained in the first place. However, despite all that we also saw Chauvin's depraved lack of concern for a man dying while he kneeled on him for 9 minutes and so he was convicted of murder. What did the rioting and looting accomplish? After January 6 there were many accusations against the people in the Trump rally that they were dangerous rioters and insurrectionists. We now know that only about 8% of those arrested were in fact Trump supporters. The rest that were arrested had ties to various extremist groups, both Antifa and White supremacists groups, but not pro Trump. We heard from AOC how she felt threatened even though she was half a mile away in a different building. We heard that the rioters bludgeoned a cop to death, which was then exposed as a lie. They changed the lie to say he died from being exposed to Bear Spray and yet refuse to provide even the slightest evidence that this is true. When the death certificate came out we learned he died of a stroke unrelated to the January 6th event. Bottom line, it doesn’t matter what side of the political aisle you are on, wait for the facts, be subject to the governing authorities. If you jump to some kind of snap conclusion to justify criminal behavior you will be fighting against God and will be put to shame.

2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

There were those who were outraged at the hypocrisy and unrighteousness of this last impeachment. It violated the US constitution. Rebelling against the constitution is rebelling against God who instituted it. Now we see judgement being brought on those who tried to bring judgement on others. The only charge that seemed to really matter was what they did when they knew the capital was under threat. Pelosi is responsible for that security. She was the one who had inadequate security and she is the one who is responsible for rejecting additional security.

3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.

Recently the threats were made that they wanted to count all those who attended Trump’s rally as participating in insurrection. They were going to banks and credit card companies to see who rented a room and who bought gas in the vicinity. But now we know that of the hundreds of thousands of people at that rally there might have been less than ten who violated the law by trespassing in the Capital. The vast majority of those involved in the riot did not attend the rally. Not only so, but none of them were guilty of murder as was originally suggested. To hold a public protest that is peaceful is a constitutional right in this country. Despite the threats you can be free from fear.

4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

In a bizarre twist some of the nominees to Biden’s cabinet and administration have claimed that the riot at the capital rises to the level of domestic terrorism but attacking, burning, and destroying other government properties done by Antifa this last year doesn’t. Why? Because those riots were at night. Obviously that logic is absurd and sure enough 71% of Americans now view Antifa as domestic terrorists. The other 29% responded that they were clueless as to who Antifa is. Since this country is a “Democratic Republic” the will of the rulers is expressed by the will of the people.

5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

That’s right, don’t even try to come up with some scriptural excuse for why you don’t need to submit. Lebron James and the NBA need to apologize. They incited a riot in Wisconsin and are now paying the price. They may not be prosecuted in a criminal court but they have already been convicted in the court of public opinion. Ratings have plummeted since their behavior. For example the ratings at the Golden Globes were down 64% from a year ago despite the fact that people have been locked up in their homes, are bored out of their minds, and have nothing better to do than watch it. But people are not interested in listening to these people preaching to them because they know they are hypocrites.

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

They are trying to legalize abortion right up until birth. They also want our tax dollars to pay for abortions worldwide. Once again I feel this is a heinous sin. But we have heard many heinous things from our elected officials and I have to believe that they are not the ones in charge but God is. We have seen time and time again that elected representatives are caught and dealt with when they commit crimes. Look at what is happening to Cuomo. Ten months ago people were outraged by his mandate to put people sick with Covid into the nursing homes. They said it would cause thousands of deaths. Well, he has been forced out of office and may be criminally prosecuted. Likewise with Newsom and Whitmer, they also will likely be forced from office. You cannot use what Cuomo did to justify not paying taxes because those taxes also paid for all those people who are now doing their job to remove him from office.

Love Fulfills the Law

8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

Right now the love of the many has grown cold. The silver lining of this is that showing love to one another and to your neighbor will shine even brighter against this black background.

9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

You don’t actually fulfill the law simply by “not doing something”. You fulfill the law by loving your neighbor as yourself. It doesn’t matter if they agree with your politics, it doesn’t even matter if they have ridiculed and insulted you.

The Day Is Near

11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

All these things that you are seeing happen that are outrageous, or absurd, these things are there to wake you up.

12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.

Behind the injustice and illogical behavior are people living in the flesh. Carousing, drunkenness, sexual immorality and debauchery are all reasons that some people will go to great lengths to cover up and hide their behavior. The Lincoln Project was a group that published the ugliest and nastiest attacks against Trump and the MAGA movement. Well now we know that these ones were pedophiles. The attack was motivated because they were concerned that the Trump administration would do their job to uncover their sins and prosecute them.

14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Get dressed. The Lord has given you the wake up call, now it is time to clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ. Every day I want to have a testimony that I belong to Jesus, not simply because of the things I don’t do but even more because of the things that I do do.

Ezekiel 33:1-8 A word unto the wicked man

1 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and set him for their watchman;

Many who are watching for the Lord’s appearing call themselves “watchmen”, it is a term you can google and do a Youtube search for. But this chapter isn’t talking about these ones, it is talking about a man who is chosen by the people to be a watchman. For example, I have been sharing that the US will be struck with a catastrophic meteor shower the evening of September 23rd and morning of September 24th. NASA is supposed to warn us of these things, they know about it, but instead of warning us they warned the government officials who control their budget. The Department of Defense is supposed to warn us about this. They have been watching it very carefully and may have even calculated to the minute when the impact will begin and yet most people haven’t heard a word. Anyway, these are the people we are talking about.

3 if, when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4 then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning, if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him; whereas if he had taken warning, he would have delivered his soul. 6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned, and the sword come, and take any person from among them; he is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

Now this becomes difficult to judge and is a great example of why I am so happy it is the Lord’s job to sort all this out and judge, not mine. Suppose you are working at an astronomy observatory, you spot this, you report it to your boss. You did your job. In fact most of these organizations have strict rules about not talking to the press. I believe those rules are there by the sovereignty of God and they absolve the underlings and put the full onus on the supervisors and heads of these departments. Some think that anyone with a telescope should know about these. Well if you are at one of these observatories you have to request permission for which part of the sky you plan on observing. So there are going to be many who work at an observatory that are not permitted to look at these with those telescopes. Still, if you have the right camera and lens you can view these as they are more than big enough to be seen. However, chem trails are being used to hide them. Yes, a trained person can still detect the objects even if they are obscured with chem trails but trying to explain to an untrained eye is more than a little fuzzy. Still the Lord promised us, “look up” and we would see our redemption approach. They can do a great job of trying to hide and obscure these things but 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is a really high standard, especially with 7 billion people all over the world who might see any mistake they make. This is what we are seeing, people all over the world from China, India, UK, and the US are spotting these.

7 So thou, son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

The point is that the men appointed by man have been bought out and are not protecting us and are not calling out the warning. So then, God appoints watchmen unto “the house of Israel”. This is such a huge verse full of implications. God’s judgement is righteous, as you have done it will be done unto you. The watchmen that have been appointed have done their job, they have sounded the warning, they have carefully calculated everything down to the minute, but they have not warned us. No, we are deplorables, not worthy of being warned. Instead they have warned the elites, the 1%, the synagogue of Satan. These people are taking appropriate action, they are building underground bunkers, they are stockpiling food, and they are getting the message out in coded messages called “predictive programming”. So then in response the Lord is also appointing watchmen to warn His house, the church.

8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die, and thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way; that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at thy hand. 9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, and he turn not from his way; he shall die in his iniquity, but thou hast delivered thy soul.

These people are wicked. They justify their action because “who am I to stop the end of the world” and yet they want to know the exact minute of this catastrophe. They want to know how to fix their investments. They have had the Fed buying up trillions in corporate debt so that they can get out of their investments without letting deplorables know. They want to know exactly when to get into their bunkers so they’ll be safe and yet justify not telling the unwashed masses because “nothing I can do”. Their whole focus is on saving themself and profiting themself. They are shepherds that only care about themselves and don’t care about the flock.

Ezekiel 33:10-20 Predictive programming

10 And thou, son of man, say unto the house of Israel: Thus ye speak, saying, Our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we pine away in them; how then can we live? 11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord Jehovah, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

If you watch their movies and TV shows they are filled with this Predictive programming coded in. It makes them think they are so smart that they know what is about to happen and they have been waving this in front of your face for years and yet the masses don’t know. They view this as justification that they consider the rest of the world “sheeple”. The concept is depicted in the Matrix where this guy begins to see through the code so they decide to “red pill” him and bring him into their little clique.

But now, look at what they are saying in these movies. They are saying essentially that we are all going to die, it will be catastrophic, etc. It will be catastrophic. Maybe tens of millions will die. 50 million people died from the Spanish flu and to most people around the world it was simply a bad year for the flu. It took more than fifty years before people examining death records realized the scale and scope of the death. Suppose 50 million people are dead after September 24th, for the world that is a “speed bump”. Even if the asteroid breaks up into a thousand pieces it would be hard to imagine more deaths than that. Especially since two thirds of those meteors should hit the ocean.

So then what is the point of this event? It reveals what cowards these wicked men are. You will know that they knew, they saved themselves and justified not telling you because “hey, what can I do”. For one thing you obviously can’t do this job of being a watchman to save and protect us.

12 And thou, son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall he that is righteous be able to live thereby in the day that he sinneth. 13 When I say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his righteousness, and commit iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered; but in his iniquity that he hath committed, [g]therein shall he die. 14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; 15 if the wicked restore the pledge, give again that which he had taken by robbery, walk in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. 16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be remembered against him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

This makes me so angry. What some say is hey, my whole life I was a good Christian, never hurt anyone, went to church on Sunday but just in this one thing, the boss told me not to tell anyone about this coming catastrophe and because of this one sin I will be judged. Is that right? Then they have the nerve to point their finger at someone who was a gang member and repented and got saved, or a woman who had an abortion and then repented and got saved. They point out that this person or that person sinned for years and got their sins forgiven so why can’t they just do this one little sin.

17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. 18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die therein. 19 And when the wicked turneth from his wickedness, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby. 20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

The Lord is going to judge everyone of us according to our ways. Let’s begin by looking at this “good Christian” who is submitting to his boss to allow millions to kept in the dark about the coming calamity despite it being their job to warn people of these calamities. What do you think is a “good Christian”? Being religious? Having the appearance of being holy without the reality? A good Christian has Jesus Christ living within them and they listen to Jesus and call Him Lord. You called your boss Lord when you listened to him instead of the Lord in your spirit. Now let’s consider these people who were slaves of sin but ultimately were rescued from that slavery by the Lord and gave their life to Him and then testified to others warning them of the impending doom. Of course the Lord will rescue these, they are witnesses of the savior, they worship Him and call Him Lord.
