What Time Is It? 2003
The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor [is] in your houses. What mean ye [that] ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord GOD of hosts. Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing [as] they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
It is late. Very late. Homosexuality, war, the rising police-state, hatred of God and his son Jesus Christ and despising Christians are all becoming the foundational principles of the new religion of America. It is the Antichrist spirit that rises out of the sea of America’s self created chaos.
A lack of common sense, a stupor, spiritual drunkenness seems to have engulfed the entire nation. We have a government that is lying about just about everything to Americans… and the people drink up these lies with glee.
The government is lying about the number of casualties in our new found war. It is lying about the effects of globalization on the American work force. It is lying about what the Constitution says and is reinterpreting it to harmonize with dictatorships around the world. It is lying about the size of our fiscal deficits. It is lying about who is responsible for the massive power outage in the northeast. It is lying about why we went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan in the first place, it is lying about who was responsible for Paul Wellstone’s death, it is lying about who was responsible for 911. The US government is now the most important arm of lucifer on planet earth. Please make no mistake about this, America is the primary agent for bringing about the coming One World Government. It is the primary bringer of war in the world today and its corruption, political, judicial, and corporate are the worst on the planet. These titles do not belong to China or North Korea, they do not belong to Iraq, or to Afghanistan. These nations do not have a more pervasively and systematically corrupt system than that which resides in the United States Of America. It has infected the entire earth with her fornications, spiritual legal and political. America’s Institutions are constantly vaunted on the television in America and the mainstream press as being some sort of ‘example’. These too are lying about the degree and pervasiveness of corruption that resides in America. These entities only report corruption after the money is gone and the culprits are in a legally impregnable position.
It is the final hour. Anyone can see it if they really belong to God. Most people in America are serving lucifer in their own private way. They are involved in various forms of witchcraft. It may be called something rather innocuous, Wicca, Harry Potter Fan Club, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, Daughters Of The Evening Star, or another occult club or association. The real problem here in America is that too many Americans are involved in these activities. This is why the nation is slipping further and further down a road to moral nihilism. Homosexuality is now accepted as a ‘normal’ lifestyle, political corruption is looked upon as normal. Mass murder in the form of abortion is looked upon as OK. War against the world is viewed as necessary and good.
If you, as a Christian, have not sensed very deeply and consistently that something is very, very wrong in America today, then I must urge you in the strongest possible terms to repent, because somewhere along the way you have been seduced by the spirit of this age and you are on the wrong path. Please repent and ask God to remove the deceptions in your mind that you may perceive the time in which we live. This is not the time to go to sleep and if you cannot discern the times then you have been slumbering a deadly spiritual slumber.
Remove every stronghold, doctrine and belief system that infects your mind that does not fall under the complete subjection of Jesus Christ. That includes doctrines such as Americanism, that empty headed flag waving that the devil has his children doing today. Wake up and believe what Jesus said. The last day’s deception is one that will deceive even the elect, only the very elect will be able to withstand it. (2 Thess. 2:11-12)
Believe Jesus when he said that many will fall asleep through the devil’s deceptions. Believe that God himself is sending a strong delusion on the earth to deceive those that received not the love of the truth. It is very late. I ask all who read this to wake up and listen to the commands, admonitions and warnings of Christ.
The simple fact is that we as American Christians do not take our faith very seriously. We have taken for granted the religious freedom we have here in the US. Persecution in the world against Christians is rising and is in no way abating. American Christians should be aware that there are people in the US who use high sounding names and institutions who are working day and night, tirelessly to remove God and even the mention of God from all public life. Their intention, sometimes stated but usually not, is to make it illegal to mention the God of the Bible anywhere in America. They are now making it illegal to display religious (specifically, Christian) displays from government buildings. Next they will want to prohibit prayer from all public gatherings, though in this they have already largely succeeded. This will be accomplished by using ‘hate-speech’ laws now on the books, laws which will soon be strengthened and modified. Any and all religious speech that acknowledges the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ will be labeled as intolerant ‘hate-speech’ and will eventually be ruled illegal. We are not there yet, but we are rapidly moving in that direction. The entire incident with Judge Moore in Alabama should be a real wakeup call for America’s Christians. Unfortunately most Christians did nothing. Prayer is still the most important weapon and letting others know what is going on is important is very good as well. However, we should not be just using information from the mainstream media’s perverted viewpoint, but we should listen to the real reasons why he would not back down. Those reasons are not the reasons stated by the purveyors of information in the United States of Sodom and Gomorrah. Remember this, the concept of Separation of Church and State are in no way shape or form mentioned in the US Constitution. Now the liars in the Mainstream media will say over and over again that it is, but I tell you now that it is not there and if you want to look it up, see for yourself:
http://www.house.gov/Constitution/Constitution.html (link removed)
You, as an American have been consistently lied to as to what the constitution means and says. Today the US Supreme Court uses foreign legal precedents, including those of Dictatorships to assist them in their rulings. Any reasonable person who has actually read the Constitution will see that most every right has been done away with by those sitting on the Supreme Court. The powers that were once delegated to the Congress who, with all its faults, could still be voted out of office, has now shifted to the executive branch. The most important power, clearly and succinctly spelled out in the Constitution, being the power to make war. That power now rests with the President in direct contravention of the US Constitution. The power to coin money now rests with a private institution, the Federal Reserve System, in clear contravention to the US Constitution. The Supreme Court is a willing participant in the rising anti-God anti Constitutional and pro-dictatorial trends. It is being used to build a dictatorship where rights of individuals do not exist and power, all real power will rest with a detached, debauched, arrogant and rich elite.
How would you like to live like this?
Here is the most important thing American Christians need to realize. The plan, the satanic plan, it is to use these Camps to slaughter the enemies of the Beast system that is being set up. The most important part of that opposition are the saints of God, the true Christians. This is the real agenda and this is the real plan. Those of you who applauded the actions of this administration in setting up these demonstrably unconstitutional camps and who plan to run to the polls to keep them in power share in the crime of the coming persecution of the Saints. You will be held accountable. If you do not want your rights trampled on, if you want to be able to see a lawyer when arrested, if you want the luxury of having an impartial Judge hear your case rather that a political appointee, who is the very same one who is charging you; if you want to have a speedy trail rather than be held for the rest of your life without ever being charged, then in the Name of Jesus Christ, I adjure you, show some genuine outrage now, and speak out while it is still legal to do so.
Finally I want to urge everyone of you to consider this; The American Churches have been fully and completely infiltrated by the enemy of Christ. If you belong to a 501(c)31 Church that allows you to deduct you offerings from your taxes, get before God now as make absolutely sure you are not in an Apostate Church. If you do not, you will surely answer to the Judge, who will surely judge his house. Those imposers who claim to be his and are not are in for a whole lot of woe;
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Is your pastor telling you of the things that the government is doing; the unconstitutional acts, the concentration camps, the denial of God in pubic life? Is he supporting those policies by his silence in exchange for his comfy little tax advantage? Is he speaking about the rise of gays in the pulpits of America’s Churches, or is he silent? If he is keeping his mouth shut, then get out of that Church. You can learn nothing from him except how to get into hell and remain there for eternity.
You may sleep if you wish, but you will awaken in the most horrible unending nightmare imaginable. Serve Christ in spirit and in truth. Not in some legalistic and pharisaic way, but in humility, love and obedience to Jesus Christ. Equip and inform yourself while you can. Don’t be an ignorant Christian. Open your Bibles and read the news. Find some good alternative news agencies that give you the ‘straight dope’ on what is going on here on planet earth. I adjure you to stay away from the mainstream sources, they are fine for local news, for weather, and the governments spin and lies on global events. For the real scoop on the ‘who is really responsible for what’, they are almost always wrong, with malicious intent. Truly, I say again, equip yourself for the times in which we live with accurate and truthful sources of information. Jesus’ command to watch takes on a whole new meaning in light of the media’s lies today.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. (Mat 24:42)
"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?" 2 Peter 3:8-11
"But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof". Romans 13:14
‘The times they are a changin’, crooned the old 60’s folk song. This simple statement is no less true today than it was then. Today is a time of enormous change and deception. We find politicians unwilling to keep promises, people unwilling to keep commitments and a mainstream media unwilling to tell the whole truth. Simply stated; deception on one level or another is the norm in our troubled times and not the exception. That is why Jesus told of times of deceit and betrayal not just in the world but amongst those that profess Christ:
"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another" -Matt 24:10
"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." -Matt 24:4-5
Of a key component of the end time system that Satan will be allowed to set up the end times. The spirit says this:
"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." -Rev 13:13-14 (italics mine)
So that we can understand really who is behind the deception in the end times, the spirit put it in plain words, just in case some are a little dull of understanding and are a little less clear thinking here is another verse telling who is responsible:
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” -Rev 12:9
What is unusual about this is that we see that the ultimate Evil, Satan himself, will be cast on the earth and it is HE that deceives the whole world. Yes, deceit is the norm. Notice the scripture does not say he deceives only ‘other people’ or ‘he deceives a sizable portion of the world’ or ‘he deceives only liberals or only conservatives’ but the WHOLE world. Does this include Christians? The answer to that is yes... and no.
"If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." - John 15:19
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. - 1 John 5:4
True Christians are not of the world as Jesus has chosen them out of the world, they will overcome. Keep in mind that it is Christ that does the choosing and it is his decision. The LORD knows those that are his for he has chosen them. They will not be deceived because they are not of this world. Jesus’ warning regarding false prophets is especially relevant here:
"For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." -Matt 24:24
So deceptive will these prophets be, yet it is strongly implied that the very elect will not be fooled. Why? Because they are not of the world having been truly born into the kingdom of God. Here is the sum of the matter. If you are comfortable with your spiritual knowledge and place in Christ, you are a prime candidate for deception. This is mainly because a deceived person does not know he is, nor does he think he really can be deceived. If he did, he would not be deceived. Comfort and ease in ones spiritual state in tantamount to the spiritual slumber Christ warned about (Matt 25:1-13).
These things have been covered more or less in other places on this site yet it is of importance to Christians living today that we heed the clarion call of the scriptures in these matters. These are times of enormous deception. I sense we are on the verge of some very big global changes. Changes which will affect every American and every person on this planet. We are in a period of transition right now. One that is deceptively rather calm, and has not affected the everyday lives of most people. That will change. Not all at once and not right away, but changes are in the offing that will cause many to gasp and be utterly confounded at what will be happening right before their eyes. I know this from the scriptures and from what the LORD has shown me personally. Things will not go well for the US for much longer. There are several reasons for this, which I will not go into here; this site is FULL of information on the "Why’s" of these things. This rest of this article will attempt to say, to a very small degree, what may very well happen and what to do.
First of all this is not ‘panic’ time. This is not written to instill panic or fear nor is it written with some ulterior motive of getting you, the reader, to buy something. I do not sell Gold or Silver or survival gear nor do I get kickbacks from big companies for recommending certain products to buy. In short, I am not going to tell you to buy anything, except perhaps a Bible if you don’t have one (and no, I am not selling those either). I do want to impress on you that there are many so-called ‘prophets’ who are engaged in some sort of ‘scam’ that fill the hearer with all sorts of conspiracy theories (some valid, some not) and information (some useful some not) for the specific purpose of getting the hearer to buy something, a book, newsletter or some equipment. These men and women are involved in a very troubling enterprise and frankly are no better than many of the televangelists who will sell you a ‘touch from God’ or some other religious trinket for a small ‘donation’. This is something Christians must be aware of in these times, the marketing of God’s prophetic word. This is wrong and unacceptable under most circumstances. Reader Beware! God’s gift is not for sale (See Acts 8:9-23)
I see massive changes in the way the world economic system will operate. Exactly what types of changes I do not know, but the Dollars preeminence as the reserve currency of the World will in all likelihood come to an end. I see a time when prices in the US become astronomically high. This may not continue for long but I do see it happening in relatively short order. The stock markets decline portends an ominous reason for concern. This is not a typical cyclical decline as there are fundamental problems in the US economy and in the very nature of a so-called ‘service economy’ that the US will have to reckon with. The 'service economy' is the reason the US has enormous and rising trade deficits. Ultimately, this will mean that those goods and services that people must have to get by will become more expensive (such as oil and energy and possibly food) and those things that people can do without will become cheaper and cheaper (such as computers and palm-pilots, certain luxury items) because of falling demand. The squeeze is already on and Christians should go over all of their monthly expenses now and get rid of those things that really aren’t necessary and cut out the waste in the family budget. Most Americans will find they have a lot of waste if they honestly look for it. God is not pleased with waste as it is, in short, very poor stewardship. I believe that this is where the next series of changes will begin, on the economic front. Those that aren’t listening to the LORD will be badly burned financially if they do not begin to manage their finances with Christ at the head and as LORD. They may very well find themselves renting at sky high rates to a slumlord, when they once owned a big $500K house. Now hear me carefully, whatever you do, don't say it isn't possible. It is because God can make it happen to the unjust, unrighteous and disobedient steward. Get your house in order. The heydays of the 90’s were mostly a mirage in that money was created out of thin air at such a rate that the economy had to accelerate. There was no miracle, just printed money chasing worthless dot-com stocks. It was called prosperity by the talking heads on financial TV.
Here is an area that is probably the most difficult to write about. There is enormous deception is American Politics. It is not as small a matter as simply a few broken campaign promises, though that too is a problem. The real problem is the endemic nature of our two party system which his essentially really only a one party system with two competing branches. Now I am not saying that there is no difference between the two mainstream parties - there are many. I am not saying that party politics inside these two are dead – it is not. What I am saying is that on certain key issues, there is no difference whatever between the two, other than the occasional rhetoric we hear. To put it plainly, the rich and powerful men of America and the world are the real power brokers in American politics. It is these people the LORD becomes especially angry with in the last days. For it is they who run the end time system (see Rev. chapters 17 & 18). This system is evil and it is being erected right before our eyes. These two parties have one main agenda right now. Globalize. This is all done piecemeal step by step, here a little, there a little with treaties that individually do not seem relevant to the people at large. However, when taken collectively they portend of such fundamental change as to to divert real political, military, legal and economic decision making out of the hands of America's elected officials and into the hands of well connected elite in international institutions who do not answer to the people. Today, it does not matter weather you vote Democrat or Republican the move to globalize trade, legal systems and finally political systems is already in high gear moving down the political autobahn at top speed. Any one with semi regular access to news can see that treaties are being ratified, international agreements are being reached, global trade liberalized, new regional multi-national currencies are being minted, global tribunals being convened and global armies deployed all over the world. This is a trend that the captains of finance and the rich men of the Earth are pushing with unrelenting speed and, yes... agility. While the overall scope of these changes cannot be aired on mainstream TV and Newspapers, anyone with any sort of independent and critical thinking skills can see that our policy makers are moving us in a direction that they have not fully revealed to the American people at large. The deceit is real in that news and informational omissions are a key tool in the plan to globalize our world, using the US as a catalyst. Now don't get this wrong, that does not mean there are not some very sharp divisions among our leaders as to methodology or tactics to be used. There are often sharp disagreements, but they do not include going backwards on globalization. This includes our new President who has put high on his list of 'things to do' while in office getting a regional trade association started for the the Western Hemisphere called the Free Trade of the Americans (FTAA). This is much like NAFTA only it is to include all (at least most of ) South and Central America. This is another step in Globalizing trade and to some degree, a legal regime that supports these efforts. It is why the Bush administration is lobbying hard to renew fast track trade authority, so that the Congress can only vote up or down and cannot amend any treaty he and his cabinet negotiate. Make no mistake while many conservatives have breathed a sigh of relief that Clinton is no longer the President, Bush will continue the march towards Global Governance come: hell or high water. His emphasis, tactics and tone will be decidedly different than Clinton's. Additionally, a different group of rich men will prosper more under Bush that under Clinton.
Today, on prime time cable, necromancy (speaking to spirits claiming to be dead people) and spiritism is now here. One cable channel has a person who claims to communicate with the dead. The scriptures are very clear about this. This is an abomination. Something that God clearly condemns. It is now 'mainstream' in America. Our nation is abandoning Biblical Christianity. Please understand, 'Christianity' is here, it is just that the majority of Churches are not practicing Biblical Christianity. While outright error and false teaching is not often found (though this is becoming less and less the case) being preached in the pulpits, it is evident by the silence of pastors on many important things going on in Christianity and America. This is the sin of omission. Omission, in that, so much of what Christ preached and taught are deliberately ignored, in almost every case this is not innocent oversight. It is part of an overall plan by Satan to silence the whole and complete message of Christ. Satan has used many tools to undermine the Church in the US, his two most important tools are a) the IRS and b) the mainstream media. Some of you know about Tax free status of Churches. 501(C)3 allows churches to operate tax free yet it does so with certain stipulations. Today, a church that preaches the imminent return of Jesus Christ and believes what the bible teaches about a coming Global government can be labeled a 'terrorist' organization by the US Government (FBI's Megiddo Document). These are dangerous times, but perhaps less dangerous than for the German Churches under Hitler. Most German Churches supported Hitler, or at least remained silent as he persecuted and slaughtered Churchmen who stood up against his evil. Most Churches 'went along to get along' with the the Devil. Most were afraid. Afraid of persecution and losing special favor with the Nazi party and German Government. They were afraid to preach all of the Gospel. So they 'adjusted' their message to fit the times and allowed cowardice and fear to take hold. It is very interesting to me that one of the main groups of people that end up in the Lake of Fire (aka: hell fire) are the fearful (Rev 21:8). Deception and cowardice in these times is a mark of a false Church. It is a mark that the leadership in the Church may not have its anointing from God but an appointment from the prince of this world.
Being a pastor today is a pretty lucrative proposition, from a strictly IRS tax perspective. Pastors get a special housing allowance paid for by the Church to cover the pastors mortgage and insurance including other living expenses. The pastor gets to deduct the mortgage interest on his house and gets to exclude the housing allowance from taxable income...pretty sweet huh? This only applies to IRS ministers. This also applies if the Pastor quits. He keeps the profit on his house even though it was paid for with the offerings of the Church. Here we may find at least part of the reason IRS pastors were so silent when, for the first time in American History, the IRS seized a American Christian Church. The Indianapolis Baptist Temple was seized by the IRS on February 13, 2001. Scores of Armed Federal Agents (after getting the go-ahead from 'Born Again' Ashcroft and Bush) removed the pastor and parishioners for income tax violations. These so-called tax violations were procedural only and did not cheat the Government out of one red cent. The Pastor did not withhold income taxes from employees who were acting as independent contractors even though the employees reported the income and paid the taxes separately. It seems the IRS is not interested in the tax money, but in the CONTROL and REPORTING that comes with the IRS's Lordship over the Church.
This seizure is most strange because when Jesse Jackson clearly violated the Law by:
using Tax free foundation money to house a mistress and pay for an illegitimate child
raising money in Black Churches for his Presidential Campaign (Clearly Illegal)
no one prosecuted him or seized his assets.
The reason is simple, the Dragon (who gives power to the BEAST) is only against those that are doing God's work and looks the other way when those who serve the beast do the exact same things. The enemy, it is clear, is Biblical, pure Christianity. The weapon used against it: The IRS. This sounds like it can't be true. Not in America you may say. I believe God is showing those of his people that are awake, the true nature of the US Government, or at least powerful interests, including so-called 'born again' officials. He is showing us who the real power behind the throne is. Jesus said that Satan was the prince of this world, that the kingdoms of the earth are his, until the Second Coming. Yes, that seems to track with what is going on quite nicely.
There will be a major shifting in Global alliances as the US begins its economic reorganization ( I hesitate to use the word decline). I see three countries playing a major role in the next few years, Russia, China and India. These three will cause the US a great deal of grief as they will move to counter the unipolar world that now exists since the demise of the Soviet Union. This is not to say OPEC nations the EU and other regional powers will necessarily wane in importance. It does mean that these three nations in particular will in various ways play increasingly important geo-political roles. Each has large populations (Russia is an exception as its population is declining) and each is a nuclear power (India does not have nuclear weapons delivery systems with a credible range yet, but will soon). American Intelligence underestimated the number of nuclear devices India and Pakistan had and is almost certainly behind the power curve on missile delivery technology as well. North Korea's 3 stage Rocket was considered a distant technological breakthrough for Pyongyang, that is until the rocket lifted off of the launch pad.
It remains to be seen how hostile this new axis will be to the US once disputes between these three powers are settled. China and India have a long contested border region that has seen skirmishes in the past. It can be safely surmised however, that if they can form a unified diplomatic front, political and military front on key issues, like opposing US hegemony, it will pose a significant challenge for US foreign policy. I see a weakening of resolve on the part of the US to stand up for the principles that once made the US the world leader. From here forward, look for democractic principles to take a back seat to corporate profits and human rights to fall behind trade policies. America will increasingly be seen around the world as a power that cannot and will not stand for anything except the interests of the most wealthy and powerful. Once this is demonstrated a few more times on the global stage, America's leadership will dwindle. As the US continues to show weakness of resolve it will create a vacuum to be filled by other players who are more capable of executing global stratagems with more clearness of purpose.
We are entering a dangerous period where the vast majority of professing Christians are fast asleep and dead in sins. This is not the time to sleep nor is it the time to be cowering with fear. It is a time to be bold and faithful to the Christ who sacrificed himself for us. It is time to learn of Christ and his ways now. It is time to do exactly what Jesus told us to do in these times; watch and pray. Most do not understand what to watch for and are confused as to why Jesus emphasized it so much. It is because the things will be happening exactly as the bible foretold but the vast majority of people will not see it. They will not comprehend what is happening and will thus be fooled. This is happening today. Watch and don't fall asleep is the message of Christ to the Church today, yet the message of the 'Church' is "relax and be rich and whatever you do don't oppose evil. Simply 'adjust' your message to the times and you will do fine". (See Matthew 19:23-24; Matthew 16:24-26; Mark 4:15-19; James 5:1-6)
To be called into the kingdom of God is to be called out of the world and out of the kingdom of Mammon (worldly riches). This is NOT what is being preached today. Mammon and Church-ianity are quite comfortable together in the modern church. This is a big deception that most people refuse to see because it forces them to re-examine their own lives, their own priorities and their own spiritual state. People like their Lexus', their half a million dollar houses and tickets to the latest Broadway musical. This is NOT the Christianity that Christ preached. One MUST put the desires of Christ first and foremost in ones life if one is to be saved. In short, this is the essence of making Christ the LORD in ones life. The way that Jesus Christ of the Bible taught is a narrow and straight path that is full of obstacles. One must love Jesus first and foremost and have his or her heart fully (100% ) committed to finishing the path, if one is to see life (See Luke 13:24) Strive to enter into the gate, don't just seek. Many of those who only seek will not be able to enter in! Here is where a key teaching is that is lacking the in churches today: Namely turning ones back on Mammon, often this doctrine is openly scoffed at. Some teachers go so far as to say that if you are poor (i.e, not rich like them) you are outside of God's will. Today a system of Mammon is coming into preeminence in the world and it is based on greed, debt, usury, buying, selling advertising, merchandising promoting, leveraging, monopolizing, stealing and the likes. It is a system the Church and organized religion is increasing a KEY part of. This is not the way to Life Jesus taught, but the way to hell the Satan is leading the masses to.
This final end time system being set up is a conspiracy against God, his Christ and his people. It is designed to set up an one world government and economic system that will enslave (not simply rule over) the entire earth (any and all who take the mark of the Beast). It may not be totally clear to most because God calls this entire system a 'Mystery'. The scriptures teach that this mystery is mostly active among the kings and the rulers of the earth (Rev:17:2) It is not seen by the vast majority. Indeed the worlds secret societies have been working secretly in the highest echelons in Western Governments to bring about the 'New Age' of 'peace' and' a 'universal brotherhood'. Partnerships between Corporations and these Governments and The UN are now driving Public Policy all over the globe. This is where power in this end time system really lies. It is the power of Satan as it is he who gives his power to this system.
Come out of this system. Ask God exactly what he requires of you in order to be separate unto him. What he requires of one person is not necessarily what he may require of another, except to be separate unto the LORD.
