Direction in an Age of Confusion
20 Years of Prophecy Fulfilled
Losing America or the Great Awakening
“Revelations?” The answer is “Yes”.
Direction in an Age of Confusion, 10 years after the prophetic word of September 11, 1998, 3 years of warning to prepare the storehouses and ready for events of September 11, 2001 (and beyond) , a pre-eminent warning of the decisions for the National election in September 11, 2008, was when I dedicated the year to the Book of Jeremiah, originally. Here, we are November 15, 2020.
Prepare for the days of reckoning and discipline by judgment, you will know when to Repent.
I tried to warn you.
It is the season of the Fall of the Churches.
Here is why….
These are the questions:
What do God’s people face when he judges them? 14: v 1-6)
What is the minister’s role when the people face judgment? 14:7-15
What does God seem to be to the people when they endure judgment? 14: v 8-9)
What freedom does God give His people? 14:v 10-11
Will God accept religion instead of relationship? (14: v 11-12)
· No, He will not.
God’s judgment causes family problems. 14: 3
God can withstand losing reputation among people to carry out His judgment. 14: 8-11
God cuts off intercessory prayer when His work becomes judgment. 14: 11
God judges the people even when their leaders lead them astray. 14:13-15
· The relationship people are supposed to have with God takes precedent over any ‘leader’ of any church or religion.
The setting of Jeremiah:
627 B.C. King Asher-banipal of Assyria died. Josiah of Judah began reforming the temple and the religion of Judah. A young priest (Jeremiah) accepted God’s call to be His prophet. Each of these events initiated struggles that continued for years and changed world history.
The most prominent change came from the young prophet, Jeremiah. He struggled with God, seeking to avoid the call God had prepared before his birth. He struggled with Judah’s kings who claimed the prophet spoke treason when he said Babylon would rule the world. He struggled with himself to remain true to a calling that led to solitude, prison, doubt, and forced exile from the land he loved. Jeremiah begged his country to follow God’s ways, not the politicians.
Jeremiah’s political and religious hopes for his nation died. God’s promise of a new covenant lives in the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Messiah.
I warned in January 2008 what was coming; I was at the polls as a watcher & monitor November 2008. Literally, cars filled with people, personal vans and passenger rental vans arrived at the voting place, a local rural county volunteer fire-house.
Hundreds of people from 6am to 7pm, as I stood in the rain outside, watching and listening, under umbrella and a temporary canvas canopy, cold and bone-weary at the end of the day, with the knowledge that many of the voters were not ‘legal’. The organization called ACORN, representatives gathered around a table on the very edge of the firehouse parking lot, and we watched and heard the conversations for almost ten hours.
The voter’s came from across the state, not the county, travelling distances as much as two or three hours away, from ‘urban cities’ provided ‘free transportation’. The men and women, elder, impoverished, or otherwise ‘challenged’, many of them had never been registered or voted before. Their first stop was that corner ‘stop’ or redirected on their way in to ask for the money they were promised ‘if they voted for…….”.
Many of these voters believed they were legally voting, and getting paid to do so, or where, was completely appropriate. They were also directed by large and small congregational church leaders, praying for ‘Change’ through their political and financial interests. These same churches had no outreach programs, no soup kitchens, no after-school, no elder-care or homeless outreach. The churches were large beautiful buildings, surrounded by slums, the clergy well-housed, fed, and supported, while their members perished in drug abuse and alcoholism. Gangs and thugs patrolling streets and businesses paid extortion money to be protected and their small businesses secure.
Revelations Chapter 1, verse 9:
“I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, which said, “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.”
This what the Bible, the ‘Word’ says about each of these churches and applies from the time they were first recorded, and a warning of prophecy to be fulfilled, that began November 3, 2008:
To the angel of the Church in Ephesus Chapter 2, v 4-7:
Yet, I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”
To the angel of the Church in Smyrna, Chapter 2, v 8-11:
I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but you are a synagogue of Satan. Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you the devil will put some of you to prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all be the second death.”
To the angel of the Church in Pergamum, Chapter 2, v 12-17:
These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Anitpas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives. Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality. Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of Nicolaitans. Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword in my mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give him some of the hidden manna; I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.
To the angel of the Church in Thyatira, Chapter 2, v 18-29:
These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and your perseverance, and that you are doing more than you did at first. Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any of this burden on you): only hold on to what you have until I come. To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations--- He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father, I will also give him the morning star. He has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.”
To the angel of the Church in Sardis, Chapter 3, v 1-6:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know what time I will come to you. Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes, will like them be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father, and his angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To the angel of the Church in Philadelphia, Chapter 3, v 7-13:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews (or Christian) though they are not, but are liars, I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on earth. I am coming soon’ Hold on to what you have, so that no one can take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the New Jerusalem, which is coming down out of the heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To the angel of the church in Laodicea write, Chapter 3, vs 14-22:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other. So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot not cold, I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing. But you do not realize you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear; so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline, so be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in eat with him, and he with me. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear, what the Spirit says to the churches.
Just three days before the election in 2008, I was seated in the office of a well-known minister, of one of the largest Christian ministry and wealth campuses in America, to give him a copy of Direction in an Age of Confusion, 20 Years of Prophecy Fulfilled work materials September 11, 2001 to September 11, 2008 (10 Years Mid-way). I pleaded with him and his leadership to post truth and warn people. Many of these modern day Christian churches, of all denominations, were acting just as these 7 churches were/are-- and the trumpet needed to be sounded, and alarm.. about ‘Losing America or the Great Awakening’ about Discipline before Judgement, Repentance, and Revival.
I was told, “No, we won’t warn America, because if we don’t, the country will fall, and Jesus will come sooner—and that’s what we want to happen.”
If you belong to any one of these churches, get out now, and repent. Find a church that is one of the ones that will be saved by His grace, and join them. If there is no one near you, gather some friends, and start the new church covenant at home.
