If I tell you a lie, can we still be friends?

Part Eight

In this series of writings we have had the luxury of covering seven of the most outstanding of false teachings in our midst today. There are many more to expose but I have been led by the LORD to continue them in a new work called “Battling the Son’s of Perdition”. I covet your prayers for our ministry as Satan constantly attempts to stall and hinder everything we do for the LORD. Our God Jehovah is a mighty God and by His wonderful grace, we will proceed onward till upward.

It is common knowledge that the demise of any city or nation is when the populace turns to extreme wickedness. We have for example Noah and the world wide flood, and Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone from heaven that was mentioned in the Scripture. We now have a more modern city to add to the list the Grecian city of Pompey smothered with hot molten volcanic ash as historical facts. There is a long list of cities of immense historical value that were overthrown by God which used invading armies mentioned in the Scripture forth-coming to accomplish the very same thing. God used the Hebrew people delivered from under bondage of Pharaoh to go through many cities and completely destroy them and sack them as punishment from God along the way to the Promised Land. I am also reminded of the fall of cities of Jerusalem, Nineveh, and Jericho.

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample (example) unto those that after should live ungodly;” II Peter 2:4-6

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand. And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries. And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man. But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt.”
Ezekiel 30:22-25

When it gets to the stage that God is forced to move on a people, no doubt it is pretty bad. These people self-righteously install a system of honour amongst thieves, murderers, rapists, child molesters, homosexuals, and general debauchery of all satanic sorts. Full blown sin is revered above anything that is right. A distinctive phrase is used in Scripture; the sin of the people has filled the cup of the wrath of God.

“The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.” Psalms 11:5-6

“For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.” Psalms 75:8

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8

“The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:” Revelation 14:10

“And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. Revelation 16:19

This scenario has played out for many centuries in the past and will be the norm of everyday living, even right here in America. This judgment is coming right at us all. I say that because it is our nature to be a wicked and sinful people at heart. On the other hand, we as born-again Christians do live amongst these depraved individuals every day. The only difference between them and us is the fact we are forgiven of all our sins and short-comings. The sinner, on the other hand, is still dead in sin and trespasses against the Most High God, Jehovah.

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (feminine men), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
I Corinthians 6:9-11

Hallelujah, Amen, Selah! I don’t know about you, but the Scripture we just read is good news to me. Someone or something has to be in place to account for checks and balances. As the highest form of all knowledge, God has positioned Himself in that strategy with authority on the grounds that it was He that created all living things for His divine purpose. Our Almighty God, holy and righteous, who reigns over all that is, stands in as the counter balance against evil. God’s extreme opposite is evil and its leader is the fallen angel Satan. All this is of God’s design and choosing for purposes mostly unknown to most of us. But there are answers for those who would venture into the realm of Godly wisdom and knowledge. No, this isn’t any form of Gnosticism but Godly wisdom that only comes from the LORD alone.

“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:2-7

Despite popular opinion, America is no different from any other nation on earth aside of the fact she is considered to be the wealthiest of our time. The truth is America is one amongst many wealthy nations. It really depends on how one evaluates wealth. America’s wealth came about by the natural resources of the land that required a labor force that immigrated into her and used in a vehicle known as the age of industrialization. At one time in history, precisely in the beginning of WWII, as a nation we manufactured everything we needed along with the goods other nations needed to win that war. At that particular time, America was completely independent of other countries for anything, even oil. Since WWII, we have chosen to pick and choose our wars and unashamedly sacrifice our sons and daughters in the process. Nothing has changed very little in that respect except for those who see fit to get what we use as a nation from other nations, by force if necessary, and hoards our nation’s resources in reserve for a rainy day. I can hear the patriots asking; what is wrong with that? It seems to me that America wants it all at any cost and is willing to sacrifice their young to get at it. America is in a paradigm shift by phasing out the age of industrialization and sweeping up technology fields in biology, robotics, and electronics. We are witnessing the vehicle of industrializing being strategically moved around the world as to spread the wealth to those less fortunate, so to speak.

As with all civilizations, as they progress and prosperity becomes the norm, leisure time is more readily available. Mankind has accomplished tremendous strides of technological achievements and feels he has earned the right to extravagant vacations and time-off in abundance. We have the archives of ancient cities and nations which fell to their demise because of too much leisure time. It has been said “idol time is the devil’s time”; that is the truth in simple rhyme. As technology advances, moral standards decline simultaneously. It seems the more advanced the nation becomes the more society sinks into sin never to recover until the slate is wiped clean by cleansing the nation with some sort of divine judgment. Sometimes God uses war to cleanse a nation. Occasionally God will use natural disasters such as floods or tornados to cleanse a city or town. It is recorded in the Bible that God has used abortion of babies to judge a nation. I really don’t think we know God very well do we?

If we could visualize a chart we could see the high standards of a humble beginning by drawing a mark starting at the top right-hand corner of the page and proceeding at a downward slant. The low but escalating beginning of technology achievements beginning with a mark at the bottom of the page proceeding at an upward slant met and passed each other in the night. I feel this happened to America right in the middle of the Viet Nam war. I believe the moral state of America has surpassed the crossover point and is in steady decline as a nation of means, wealth, and moral degradation. It is just as history is repeating itself with the same old scenario of moral accolades in recession. I understand this is a pretty bleak outlook for the most powerful nation on earth but we have to consider that other civilizations boasted the same accolades and are no more.

Many in America think that America’s abortion machine of children is a new thing. But in fact, it is an ancient form of divine judgment. Abortion is one of many forms of judgment brought upon a nation because of idolatry or simply turning their back on God. We say we are a God fearing people but few repent of their sin in these days. God weighs the balance and He keeps His eye on the sin gauge, the cup of trembling. When the cup becomes full of sin, God has no choice but to pour out His wrath upon a nation. God is no respecter of persons, cities, or nations. I am convinced with all my heart America is under the curse of God and He has determined to take away the very gift that has made us as a nation great, our children.

“And I polluted them in their own gifts (children), in that they caused to pass through the fire (child sacrifice) all that openeth the womb that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 20:26

I have studied this Scripture over and over in its context trying to understand why God would use an extreme judgment upon His very people. It seems that we as God’s people do not take Him seriously enough. We have been taught that God is love and He is love to those who obey Him. However, there are rebellious people amongst God’s elect. A rebellious people that have led the remnant away from the statutes of God; thus, we disobey God’s every word in ignorance. We do not take God at His word, the very mistake Eve made in the Garden.

It is a fact that we actually burn our children in the idols’ fire when we wage war against other countries. Let’s be serious for a moment and allow me to ask a question. Would any other country in the world be silly enough to invade the US? I feel our constant show of power at arms all over the world deters that but we have anxious people in high places that never get to use them until a war is manufactured. When a US aircraft carrier parks in some other country’s backyard, I feel they will think twice before making a foolish mistake. Some are so arrogant to do so despite the show of arms, but that is how others around the world perceive America today. We have become the world’s policeman on the beat and known by all to be just a big bully on the block. I sincerely believe all of our enemies are manufactured at one point. We are guilty of sacrificing our children to the witchcraft of government and the unwarranted wars we wage on all our nation neighbors. It would behoove us to be careful and try to see things as God would see it. We gain this wisdom and understanding from reading what has happened to the nation of Israel in the past and present. God uses torn down and overthrown nations as the example to us today. We could easily become the next torn down and overthrown nation on the trash heap of fallen empires. As we come closer to the end, we as a people of God‘s kingdom cannot afford to be evasive and ignorant to the purpose of the LORD. There will be no such thing as ignorance to the laws of God.

Many people perceive me as an alarmist or even a doom’s day prophet. I say, call it what you will, but I consider myself a watchman on the wall. I have believed all along that things as we know it to be cannot go on forever even with all our best efforts to do so. As I see it, America has had it too good to long because she is now cuddled in the arms of Mother Babylon. All is well and going according to plans for those who have sacrificed themselves to the gods of greed and aggression. I write these things because I feel the urgency to warn others of impending destruction. We as Americans have set ourselves up for the fall with our patriotism, pride, and prejudices. As a watchman on the wall I want to encourage us to remember Jehovah God sees all and knows all things. Christians today are encouraged to turn from the religion of denominations and false gods. We are to turn our eyes to the LORD JESUS and become more like him instead of the militants we are today.

As Christians we have the undeniable need to focus on the Kingdom of God and abandon the agenda of the empires of the world. Remember, we are sojourners simply passing through this land. Make no mistake, in their time, all empires will come to naught and just where will you stand then? Everything we as Christians do and say should be for the furthermost of the Kingdom of God and not necessarily for the empires of the world. The warning signs are everywhere. We as Christians are off course in our personal relationship with the LORD at this time in history. As a nation, we have forgotten the true and living God Jehovah. We are materialistic, idol-worshipers in some fashion or form. Christians heed the warning; we serve a very jealous God!

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial (idol worship)? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” II Corinthians 6:14-18

If I tell you a lie, can we still be friends?

Part Seven

In the writing of part six, I briefly mentioned the Lady in Red. Actually she is the Lady in purple and red and for good reason. It is at this juncture I feel we need to pursue this item and discover for ourselves just who is this Lady. Of course she is no lady but a whorish woman who has conquered the nations through her deceitfulness, lying tongue, empty promises of the highest grandeur, the world’s leader in false religion. Everything is at stake at this point, what we have here is Satan gambling against Almighty God. The ruse is increased on the entire world. Satan’s ultimate goal is to take his ruse to its highest level and set the infamous trap in order to arrest your very soul. The question of the Lady arises from the Scripture of the Bible.

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:…”
Revelation 17:1-4

We have to keep in mind that Bible typology is used here in this particular Scripture. It is something of a code for believers who alone have the needed spiritual insight to decipher the code. We also have to consider that the Bible is the spoken Word of God to the Prophets so as to add divine ancient wisdom beyond our earthly comprehension. God explains in greater detail what He wants us to understand. So He spells it out for us, so to speak. I feel God does this on the behalf His Chosen. The Lord wants us as believers to know and possess the truth of matters. The unsaved-unbelievers will shirk this prophecy off as they have done for centuries, calling and accusing us the fools and witches teaching heresy. We are all intertwined in the eternal struggle of good versus evil. We all were set from the foundation of the earth to pick up the torch of the Kingdom of God where God injects us in His time table. Or we can reject it all and leave it to chance in which I do not believe. It is up to every individual in the end to have made all the right choices in their lives. We will be judged by God accordingly. In the past, it was unbelievers that killed the prophets and they will more than most likely get at us who hold the Word of Truth in the end. I feel it is necessary to the point of compulsory to continually warn believers everywhere of the dangers of the powers of darkness lurking in this world. The LORD is warning us through this writing and many others alike, evermore of the growing power and momentum in which the powers of darkness are culminating. Now more than ever, I am convinced the Beast of Revelation is at the door, just awaiting his introduction to the world. I am equally convinced that playtime is about to come to a halt for all those who believe in the LORD JESUS Christ.

Falsehood Number Seven

We as born-again believers have been duped by false prophets all our lives, I know for sure I have. We have been led by the proverbial nose ring through the Scripture drawing bits and pieces together to make their case seem to be the truth. These false prophets can be found in the seminaries of denominations, as well as in our so-called Christian schools. They can also be found in the public school system and in local government. They most assuredly can be found in all facets of Federal Government, being in position to insure their agenda is propagated through law making. One of the most important keys to staying in line with the truth is keeping the Scripture in context. It is a known fact that one can make the Scripture say most anything you like. Satan performed that little trick in the Garden with Eve listening to Satan. Satan performed a little surgery on the spoken Word of God and changed the truth into a lie. A little word missing here and a little word added there and the next thing you have is an untruth. All we have heard throughout our lives is partial truth. To listen and adhere to real unadulterated truth would bring about unidirectional change in each of us following the old path, the path less trodden. We have access to the unadulterated truth right in our very hands, the Bible. The falsehoods I bring to the front are propagated from church denominations along with Freemasonry; their many different interpretations of the Bible are infamous for this procedure of half-truth. Freemasonry attempts to mix and mingle Gnostic Doctrine, pagan practices, and Christianity thus blending a concoction of lethal proportions of half-truth. It would really unnerve us to find out just how many professing Christian’s are actually Freemasons. The truth is you cannot be both and withstand the brilliant, penetrating, light of the judgment of God. A born-again child of God that dabbles in Freemasonry stands to lose his or her rewards at the Judgment Bema Seat of Christ. If they are adamant to pursue this adultery with God, they stand to lose every good work they have performed in this life. This is the warning from God.

“Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.” I Corinthians 3:13-19

No doubt the Gnostics would go to great lengths to argue that point. This is one of the reasons I have always steered clear of Freemasonry and held on to the old KJV, but only by the grace of God. While I study the KJV again I emphasize one must adhere to keeping the Scripture in its context. The Authorized King James Version is one bloody book. Saints of God have given their lives for this Bible. Having been tried and tested by God himself through famines, floods, and fire. The KJV is the Bible for me if one desires and seeks the truth. No other version of the Bible since the writings of the 1611 King James Version reprinted in 1814 in America can make that claim. I encourage you to stay with what God has tried in His purging fire.

The next Scripture is what the Bible says concerning the beginning of events of the rapture. You might be wandering at this point why it is that I inject the Second Coming of Christ. Another falsehood is addressed with the answer quite simply; there is no escaping the Beast of Revelation until Christ returns for us. There is no escape pod, there is no emergency button to press, and there will be no secret rapture of the church despite all the false prophets’ predictions and prognostications. You will notice the procedure in which events transpire beginning with the Ascension of Christ.

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive? But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet {the battle of Gog and Magog}. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” I Corinthians 15:20-26

This Scripture is a time capsule containing a long series of events beginning with the death, burial, Resurrection and Ascension of our LORD. The Scripture continues with the combined rapture of the church and the Second Coming, which is in all reality, the same event. Immediately after the Second Coming with the Saints of God, the Kingdom of God on earth is established with Christ on the Throne of David for 1000 years, better known as the beginning of the Millennial Reign.

After all these events one would tend to believe there can’t be any more to this, but it doesn’t end there as many are led to believe. There is one item we all tend to overlook and it is the fact that there will be an uprising, a rebellion amongst the nation of Israel after the 1000 year reign of Christ that will have to be put down by Christ himself. This confrontation is known as the war of Gog and Magog. We have overlooked the fact that the nation of Israel was made up of unbelievers that was not in the only original rapture of the Church. They were spared death and rescued from the hands of the Beast when Christ broke through the clouds with us as the Bride of Christ and destroyed the Beast of Revelation at the Battle of Armageddon. The truth is the remnant that was rescued but never left the earth, discovered for the first time Christ was truly the Messiah they have been expecting for generations. They never went to heaven, but stayed on earth, procreating more generations that does not believe the truth but sadly enough, only to rise up again against the LORD of Hosts. After the war with Gog and Magog is put down, the Kingdom of God culminates with the introduction of the New Jerusalem, the city and home of the Bride of Christ. At this point, there will never again be another war and there will be no more need for death because the Death Angel will be destroyed. That alone will be a blessing to us all because that means very simply, there will be no more physical separation from our loved ones or our Saviour. All these events, some past, some present, some future, was penned down by God’s righteous men, moved and motivated by the Holy Spirit of God. We have with us in our very possession the most precious truth the world has ever known. I just wish they would believe it as I do.

Of course, the reality of it all is that the rapture of the church forward is yet to happen, but as far as God is concerned, it is as good as has happened. With God there is no such thing as a time barrier. Just as an architect can foresee his works completed, God sees His work completed as if it has happened. He can be anywhere he chooses to be, past, present, future. This is the reason the prophecy seems so clear and understandable. Most all the Old Testament prophets write of these future happenings but Daniel, Joel, Ezekiel, and the Apostle John spells all this out for us giving the time table in order of events to take place in their writings, just like the prophecies have already happened. No doubt, these men of God were the support team of architects God brought together in order to be able to give us a hard copy of the Word of God. The LORD did that for us so we could have a better understanding of himself and his purposes for us all.

At this juncture, again I want to emphasize the Biblical fact that there will be no secret rapture of the church. The LORD begins His coming in Glory, the Second Advent, and seen by all on earth; right after the Beast has proclaimed himself as god. This is the event prophesied as the abomination of desolation. The Beast will wage war on the Saints. There will not be two or three secret little raptures as some evangelists have claimed and would have you to believe. It is understandable this Second Coming of the LORD will begin in phases, first with the one and only rapture of all born-again believers of all ages and time periods, right after the war waged on the Saints. This will commence with the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet call of the Angel of God.

“And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” Daniel 11:33-35

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” I Corinthians 15:51-52

“And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.”
Revelation 8:6

Immediately, the accession of the two prophets of God that were murdered and left in the streets for dead three days, beginning in Revelation 11:13 come back to life and the rapture or snatching away of the Body of Christ/ the Bride of Christ will occur.

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead (unbelievers) lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4-6

Secondly, the Bema Seat of Judgment will take place suspended just outside of the earth’s atmosphere where we will lose or gain rewards for the LORD’s service on earth.

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” Revelation 11:18

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:12

Thirdly, immediately following the Bema Seat Judgments, the Marriage Supper of The Lamb will take place. In accordance with the phases of His Second Coming, we remain still suspended just above the earth’s atmosphere using the earth as a backdrop. At this point we will not be focused on this world but on the LORD. He will have our undivided attention.

“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, these are the true sayings of God.” Revelation 19:7-9

Meanwhile, events continue to taking place here on earth. The Beast of Revelation has waged war on the Saints of God. But at this point, all the horrors of the Beast are history and merely a bad dream for you and me. More than likely we have suffered at the hand of the Beast and the False Prophet and faced the executioner for taking a stand for the LORD. Now is when the Beast will wage war against the Tribes of Israel because they are the last remnant that still represents Almighty God on earth. It will be the sole purpose of the Beast to eradicate any evidence of the true and living God. This must be accomplished in order for him to be in a position to proclaim himself as god. Remember that as the raptured Bride of Christ, we are with the LORD at the Marriage Supper, basking in His glory, eating with Him breaking bread and drinking of the same cup from His table just like the Disciples did at the Last Supper. In my mind I can picture all these things as if I am already there.

While we are busy with the Marriage Supper with Christ, something of majestic but catastrophic proportions takes place on earth, the destruction of the Whore of Babylon. We began this writing with the opening of the Judgment of the Whore. Here it is culminating to the end.

“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:9-18

The Beast and his minions will tire of the Whore which is actually false religions, continually attempting to upstage the Beast. This includes Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and most importantly of all, pseudo Christianity including all its denominations. At this stage of events everything in the name of Christianity must be destroyed along with all false religions. Do you know how many wars have been started and waged in the name of Christ? It seems it is the eternal practice for America to invade every country it can and plunder it in the name of Christianity. It will all come to an end one day but it will take Christ himself to set things straight once and for all. With this said the ten kings, which are the ten nations, will turn on this religious whore, destroying her and the great city which she built for herself, Babylon the birth place of false religion under King Nimrod. This destruction of Babylon culminates the full cycle of events evolving all false religions.

Once the Holy Marriage Supper is finished, the Bride of Christ (you and me) will mount up on horses and follow our Holy LORD to the surface of the earth in all His Glory and majesty just in time to come to the rescue of His chosen nation of Israel. This is the scene of the Battle of Armageddon. The Old Testament prophesy has need to be fulfilled and it will be fulfilled.

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16

“And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” Revelation 16:16

Have you ever wondered why it is that Christ will have to rule with a rod of iron? Let us look at this for just a moment. When Christ has put down the beast, false religion along with all the false prophets, there will be some who were not killed but survived this fantastic holocaust by joining the LORD in belief of the truth. As the LORD gives us, the Bride of Christ, our duties to be carried out here on earth as priests placed in strategic places around the world; there will be some resistance encountered. We have to take into consideration that Satan has not been dealt with until after the millennial reign of Christ has come to its culmination. Satan, contemplating with one more assault on God, will once again stir up the masses and instill discontent and rebellion amongst the people.

Christ will be forced to rule with a rod of iron. People who are not abiding with His agenda will view Him as another despot, just another man that demands too much from the people, unfair. Little do they realize that King JESUS can see their hearts and minds; something no other man on earth possesses the ability to do. Have you ever wondered the kind of life we would carry on in the millennial reign? I could be wrong, but I feel Christ would have the entire earth to go back to the way it was in His time on earth. I feel sure He will have us to take up the Middle East way of life, an agrarian life style, a very simple way of life, and I have good reason to say that. God desires for us to enjoy life but how can we enjoy life with added worry of not being able to perform for tyrants who demand more taxes, strain of being over worked, pressure from demanding unreachable goals, and covet from things we lust after? I feel sure these things that so easily beset us will be taken away from us when God destroyed all the armies of the world at Armageddon. All air forces will have been destroyed, all tank divisions will have been destroyed, all battle fleets in the oceans will have been destroyed, and most importantly, all standing armies, millions of men and women will have been destroyed. Mechanization as we know it will come to a grinding halt at Armageddon. There will be no more aggression of countries looking for natural wealth such as oil, coal, plutonium or anything that will harm the earth and its people. Anything that will bring harm to the earth, including governments and their leaders, will be put down once and for all. There will be perfect order on earth, thus the need and use of the rod of iron. I feel sure at this juncture we have come to realize we do not know God very well do we?

At this time I want to inject the vehicle in which the Beast of Revelation used to bring all these things about to promote his agenda. In Bible typology, anytime a woman is mentioned, usually, but not necessarily, nameless, she represents a false religion. It is sometimes difficult to know where typology is being used or is it actuality. The secret to this is found in the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I want it understood that I am not a chauvinist, bigot, or a person that looks down on women. In fact I am quite the opposite, just ask my wife. Real, genuine, godly women are a jewel to any society, but as in all time periods they are a rarity. I can say without hesitation, my dear wife is one of those precious jewels. Throughout the Scriptures one can find references to women, some God fearing and some not so.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5

In this passage of Revelation the woman clothed in purple and red mentioned in metaphor is Mystery Babylon. Babylon the Great is an actual place; the very place all civilization began and represents the utopia of false religion. This is the vehicle that the Beast and the False Prophet have devised and incorporated to run a ruse of world-wide devastation. This is nothing new to Bible historians. You might ask, but why a false religion? Cannot the Beast just take over by force like every other dictator or despotic has done? This is where we will discover the cunning of Satan. I might have mentioned this on several occasions, but one more time won’t matter. I refer to the Garden of Eden again where Satan disguised himself as the most beautiful beast in the known world at that time of the Creation. The Bible gives us reference to his beauty as unsurpassed and brilliant with color. We are in need of picturing Satan as stunning, radiant, and amazingly pleasant to all the senses of our humanity. For me, that is a very tall task considering my experience with snakes. It is an amazing thing to blend such beauty with something so lethal. We must take into consideration that at this time in the Garden of Creation there was no sin, no knowledge of sin or wrong doing, and God decreed that everything was good in His sight. The storm clouds were just out of sight, over the horizon. We need to keep in mind; we will never see Satan at his worst until the ruse has run its course and the intended victim is incarcerated in his bondage. There is never but little warning when the snake makes his lunge at the intended victim. This is the reason the Bible uses the title of whore and most of us adults are aware of what that means, to steal one’s soul. So it is with this colorful metaphor of a woman riding a beast clothed in brilliant colors of purple and red. No doubt, this false religion is exceptionally pleasant to every sense we possess as humans. It is pleasant to the lust of the eyes, it is pleasant to the lust of the flesh, and most always, it conjures up the senses of euphoric patriotism, youthful pride, and prideful lust.

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” I Samuel 15:23

The use of witchcraft, another guise of false religion, brought about the demise of King Saul. From the very outset of humanity witchcrafts, wizardry, seers, and magic spells, have always been a magnet to draw the curious and unwary into the web of a realm of fantastic realities. It is an automatic response of people to turn to the fortune teller when they cannot get any advice from the true and Living God. They will readily use demons to fill the void of silence. They go by many names such as soothsayer, clairvoyant, oracle, fortune-teller, psychic and Freemasonry, another guise of false religion. All of America possesses this lust for the fantastic and is on the way of losing its very soul to Satan.

Most all of these avenues are explored with some in great detail, and expense is accomplished through the motion picture industry with its magic wand. Most certainly it had its beginnings with the productions of Walt Disney which began in 1923, with soon after generations of my Mom and Dad, Aunts and Uncles which were born in the early 1930’s. Disney started its television productions in 1954, the year I was born. I remember seeing the Disney cartoons on TV as early as 1959 having no sound. The silent cartoons were pretty good even for an imaginative child like me. As we can attest, it was a gradual but calculated upscale of motion picture events to portray witchcraft as an important tool to assist in fighting crime and many other problems that warranted a seer’s point of view. Today Witchcraft has become an accepted and important tool in all facets of society and is widely accepted by all, including the government. Take for instance the Washington Monument; it represents the ancient worship of the Egyptian Sun god RA in all these United States of America and was established by Freemasonry. It has been said many times by arrogant Christians that America is a Christian nation. From my standpoint that statement is questionable and absurd.

The real truth is America is a pagan nation with all its satanic icons seen all over the nation. America was founded by Freemasonry from bloody England by those who wished to get out from under King George with no holds barred. The Washington Monument stands proudly for their accomplishments in America. It stands majestically and euphorically in the dead center of our government. Whether we like it or not is irrelevant, false worship of other gods, strange gods, is the very core of American belief systems from the very outset. America will be judged by Almighty God accordingly. In reality, Christianity was just a little pocket of resistance towards these idol worshipers and collected them in what is known as the Bible Belt of America. The rest of the nation practices full blown paganism.

Little by little, we as the people aid and abet the powers of darkness by allowing this cancer of witchcraft and Freemasonry to spread its root in our society. Today there are entire communities that give their all to the sorceries and spells of the demons of hell. There are countless children’s books devoted to the inoculation of wizardry and witchcraft. Casting spells on our children beginning from the time they can digest what is happening on the movie screen. We as adults take great pride in making sure our children get their fill of fantasy and wonder of the silver screen. Our generation is guilty of rearing up a generation that will be ostracized of the Living God Jehovah. They will scorn everything that is holy and pure. In time, they will reject the authority of the law of the land and will become the most lawless generation we have ever known. We are guilty of preparing the way of the Lawless One by allowing the seeds of witchcraft and Freemasonry to flourish in our society. This legacy of witchcraft will be the very demise of a God fearing people. It has already begun to dominate the landscape of America. Witchcraft and Freemasonry with its doctrine of higher knowledge will be the dominating religion of the Beast of Revelation, somewhat like the Doctrine of Nazism was the religion of the Third Reich. As Adolf Hitler had the fervor of the Nazis behind him, the Beast will have the fervor of witchcraft behind him. The church denominations and other false religions of Gnosticism such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and pseudo Christianity, will force all in the land to bow down before their new god, an ancient god, better known to us as Satan.

If I tell you a lie, can we still be friends?

Part Six

I am amazed at the ease Satan has infiltrated the church. It is true that he has had many centuries of practice accomplishing that feat. I am also astounded at the rate the movie industry has taken over and influenced every facet of our society. I am not going to make the mistake and single out just one avenue on Satan’s list, but the movie industry ranks pretty high on his list of tools to subvert the church, the nation, and the entire world. This influence of the movie media includes what we wear, where we live, what we live in, what we use as transportation, and even the very food we eat. No one is exempt from this influence. I could go on, the list is endless. I believe that the motion picture industry is one of the most diabolical inventions Satan has ever unleashed on all of mankind. Let us think about that statement concerning motion pictures for just a moment. I ask the question, can you eat a motion picture? Can you wear a motion picture? Can you cover up with a motion picture, snuggle up to it, and keep warm through the cold nights? I know these questions are absurd but, the truth is no, you cannot do any of these things I mentioned but still, the motion pictures sphere of influence is one of the most important application of our daily lives. After 50 plus years of being subjected to all modes of the media, I am convinced this particular tool of Satan was devised to manipulate the human mind. Satan welds the power to sway one’s way of thinking to the point of disaster. The motion picture industry promotes and glorifies rebellion, extramarital sex, divorce, alternative lifestyles, war, witchcraft, and patriotism among you and our nation’s youth. This devilish persuasion from hell has changed the course of history on many occasions and led entire nations to ruin because of the propaganda it can produce. I have to be honest and admit, we didn’t always have the motion picture industry with us until the turn of the early 1900’s, but Satan was non-the –less creative. Let’s face the truth, mind control is what Satan is all about. We have with us today the legacy of WWII to prove the point. He used it in the Garden and it has been with us ever since. The human mind has always been Satan’s choice of battlefields.

Most everything has its beginning with the best of intensions. But, when mankind gets bored with his new invention, it begins to take on ulterior forms and soon follows the bread crumb trail of debauchery. This is at the core of every human being, some a lot worse than others, no doubt, but the seed of sin remains. For those of us who like to think highly of ourselves, the Bible plainly teaches that we are all born and bred in sin. We are all at the bottom of the cesspool tank upon arrival on earth. I think this can be said for all areas of the entertainment field including radio broadcasts and television broadcasts. I haven’t mentioned the use of the newspaper. It has been said, ‘so goes the newspaper, so goes the country.’ Have you ever wondered why they call it entertainment broadcasts? I feel that terminology is just a deception, a cover for something more sinister. I am reminded of the parable of the sower where sometimes the seed is sown in the wind. The seed is sown everywhere and even the unintended places where it will do no good. It is true, there are many well meaning people that do good things like Christian oriented movies and public radio broadcasts that come from the mediums, but I believe if the good verses the bad were placed in the balance, the good would come up wanting. What happens to the populace when all society is determined to unleash its wickedness as license for despicable acts? That was what the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, and more modern Pompey a Grecian city was all about. We as Christian’s, we as a nation, have become transfixed on this need as to satisfy the flesh and at any cost. There has been a paradigm shift in our society. There is something magical about all of this and the flesh is wallowing in it sensationally. We are all in this together and we are all duped by the wizardry of Satan.

I feel the real reason for all these mediums of the flow of information is for the sole purpose of the Beast of Revelation as Almighty God allows it. We are now being conditioned to accept anything that comes down the pike. But the time will come the Beast will come to power and the use of the mediums will be his main mode of reaching the masses. We are forced to use the comparison of the Holocaust of WWII to the Beast of Revelation because that is the closest portion of history we have of any magnitude that we can relate too. But, the Bible plainly states there has not been anything alike unto this event in all the history of mankind. The nearest people we have that can understand any of this is the generation of WWII. They got a firsthand view of this when they witnessed Adolf Hitler come into power and take Germany and eventually most of Europe, by his propaganda machine, Satan’s ultimate means of mind control. No doubt, it was second to none and the amazing thing about it was that they, the German people, asked for it and then demanded it at the voting polls. It is recorded that the church and known Christian’s of the time went along with Hitler and then embraced him as to embolden the people that his way was the right way. That was just a small example of what is in store for the world when the Beast comes into power. He will be welcomed with open arms by the church. It is an historical fact the Holocaust of WWII was aimed at the Jew, but what Adolf Hitler had in mind for the Jew, the Beast of Revelation has in mind on a much grandeur scale will be unleashed on the entire world.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?”
II Thessalonians 2:3-5

We stand to remember and learn a few lessons from history. Let us face the truth, all that calls themselves Christian’s in America are asleep in the arms of mother Babylon and we just adore her and her many comforting ways. Fortunately it is not like this in other countries where Christian’s are a scourge. Being a scourge isn’t always a bad thing; at least we know where one stands. Many of us in America are in a state of denial as I write, but the fact remains. The Word of God still invites us to a clear warning over and over again. We will have to face the truth sooner than later for our own safety, the safety of our children, our sanity, but most importantly, our very soul.

Falsehood Number Six

It is widely accepted that Christian’s are in the everyday workings of society. Therefore, instead of taking the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ into the world, the opposite has occurred by bringing the world into the church. Christian’s today having become sensationalized to the world is desensitized to the Great Commission. The truth is that religion is easy on one hand because all you have to do is go along with it. On the other hand religion can be hard and rigorous because of the whoops they will have you to jump through. Whereas, living according to the teaching of LORD JESUS is so much more spiritual rewarding by making it harder on the whims of the flesh. Living for the LORD JESUS demands separation from the world and all it has to offer. That alone is something most Christian’s refuse to adhere too. The truth is that most Christian’s are card carrying Babylonian’s who don’t want to rock the boat, so to speak. On the other hand, there are over zealous Christian’s who bear down on others by badgering and almost to the point of harassing people to come to Christ. They are the ones that propagate the easy beliveism theory. Getting them to say the magic words and so they will have fire insurance. The truth is, following Christ means that all you really have to do is be available and willing to listen to the Holy Spirit. God will open doors of opportunity and give you the words to say when the time comes. God sees the heart of both the unsaved and the saved. He alone knows when it is time to act on opportunity. It seems the overzealous Christian goes all out to get someone saved so they can chalk up another number on the score board for Sunday morning comparisons. They propagate competition amongst Christian’s. They tend to play the numbers game attempting to be someone’s Holy Spirit and try to compete with other Christian’s which practice is forbidden in the New Testament Church.

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Mat 28:18-20

Well, that’s not going to happen without a fight. So much so that the church today stands in light of teaching and preaching another Gospel, which ends up being a watered down version of the Gospel divided amongst the denominations. Be it known that the idea of church denominations is number one in Satan’s think tank of evil. It seems the church cannot be helped but doomed to fail through infiltration of false ideology, witchcraft.

History has revealed that Adolf Hitler attempted to build his Third Reich (Third Kingdom) using the foundation of sorcery, magic, and witchcraft. With the evidence of wartime artifacts, photos, and motion pictures, of that era (1926-1945)revealed that everywhere one would look, you could see the old and sometimes, ancient artifacts of witchcraft and false religions gathered from around the world. For example, the swastika on the Nazi flag was adopted from the country of India of the ancient Buddha Shrines. The Eagle was taken from Ancient Rome and placed at the head of German superiority. The Roman Eagle was placed on everything including flag standards, building fronts, stationary, napkins, silverware and fine chinaware. The first thing Hitler used to reach the masses was to write his Mien Kampf (My Life)from the prison he was in for a few months accused for a botched up bank robbery. The master plan was all spelled out as to what his plans were but they seemed so absurd because a sane man would know better that to try to pull it off. We were all wrong about Hitler. We will be all wrong about the Beast when he shows up also. The second and most important thing Hitler accomplished was to take over and revamp the motion picture industry of Germany. The schemes Hitler used were nothing new, but repackaged for a more modern people and the church endorsed him. Witchcraft will be the mainline religion of the Beast of Revelation and the church will endorse him also.

For just a moment, please allow me to clarify the term church which is the ecclesia, the called out, described in the New Testament.

“And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” Book of Acts 11:26

Today the word church has taken on a different meaning from the intended Biblical use. Originally, the term church meant a body of believers congregating together in one place, believers called out of the world. The church was meant to be a sanctuary where all people assembled had only one thing in common, the LORD JESUS and away from the world, even though it was just a few minutes at a time. When I use the word church, I am referring to the visible buildings that represent all denominations. It is true; the church today has become a place where the born-again believing Christian’s are intertwined and mingled in with unbelievers. There are also many who are not born-again and going along with to take the title of Christian to gain from it somehow in their schemes of things to be accomplished. These are the ones Satan uses to steer the church and we are being taken for the ride of our life. Hitler used these same tactics on the church in Germany as he was gathering the necessary power for his stratagem.

The Apostle Paul uses the phrase, “for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” I am intrigued at that statement because I need a better understanding of what he is talking about. I ask the questions, falling away from what? Could he mean the church falling away from the worldly mindset? Not likely, because the day will come the Beast will use the church to gain his power just as Hitler did to gain acceptance with the people. Are the people disenchanted to the point of leaving? Not likely either, because the Beast and the False Prophet will tune up their magic and wonders to bring in a much larger crowd, thus the great deception. Remember the Beast is able to bring down fire from heaven just as God does and raise the dead. He will impose himself on the masses so strong the people will all swear that he is god, much like the Ancient Greeks. It isn’t because the church doesn’t have any power because this time it will possess all the power it has ever been known to have at its beck and call but not for the good of mankind but of the evil. Another question to ask is, have the people been jaded because of church scams and betrayals? That is somewhat possible to the point that just a few will leave, but for the most part, most will stay on to see the big lightshow at the end. Well, when the Beast gets into bed with the church, would it not be reasonable that those who are falling away are those running from persecution? Let us look closer at that Scripture once again.

“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he {Holy Spirit} who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” II Thessalonians 2:7-12

I believe what the Apostle Paul was referring to is that truly born-again Christian’s will be taught by the Spirit of God that the Beast and all his minions will run the biggest ruse ever known to man. Even thought the Beast of Revelation has not yet appeared the initial setup of false religions and false prophets are already in place. The Christian’s will in turn leave the religious church denominations known in the Bible as harlot churches along with the Mother of harlots, Roman Catholicism, the Lady in Red. Some will accuse me of taking the protestant point of view concerning the Catholic Churches part in Revelation. The Catholic Church views the False Prophet to come from an outside source of the Beast’s making. This could be more to the truth than we are willing to admit. I feel the Beast will bring with him the religion of witchcraft being more than capable of performing delusions that will sway one’s way of thinking. This is really nothing new to the world but this concept is just now being accepted by church denominations. With the Beast and the False Prophet in control it will be defined into a fantastic art form played out within the walls of every church denomination. There will be a paradigm shift in religion as we know it. This religion of witchcraft will be very easy to incorporate into the church because it is well known of the mysteries that already surround the Catholic Church. The Dark Ages were not called the Dark Ages for nothing. We cannot single out just the Catholics because the ground work is being laid as I write. It is reported by many news agencies that many Pentecostal churches already incorporate wizardry, magic shows, and magicians into the congregations. People eat this entertainment up like candy to a baby. Let’s face the truth of today; most all church denominations already have a sensational desire for the supernatural and openly welcome Gospel oriented magic into the congregation.

We have to remember the fact of the matter is that most all denominations sprang from the Roman Catholic Church with their beginning in the 14th century. The Catholic Church is proud of that fact boasting to be the Mother Church of the world. Most denominations are in denial of that fact, but it doesn’t matter because that fact is ever present with us today. The exodus of the denominations has already begun. The great falling away is progressing everyday as the false prophets are exposed and continually come on the scene to deceive God’s very elect. This is going according to the prophecy of the Bible and for a very good reason. God has devised a way to separate his chosen ones out of the world and out of the worldly church. We sometimes fail to realize that God’s very own Holy Spirit resides in our bodies as His temple. God’s Spirit needs no temple to reside in outside of our body. As Christian’s we have the wonderful privilege of being able to walk with God and we can talk to God with little or no effort on our part. All that the LORD requires of us who know Him is to be separate from the world. But when you cannot get away from the world when attending the local assembly where is one to go? This gigantic scheme of Satan will be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back. Denominations were Satan’s way of categorizing and cattle prodding Christian’s and unbelievers together. This was a cunning devise strategy incorporated by Emperor Constantine of Rome when he married the state and the church together. Satan unveiled a plan to bring the two together, state and church as well as church denominations to diminish the Gospel of Christ rendering it seemingly ineffective in the end. The truth is that church denominations will in the end will cease to preach and teach the Gospel of Christ and so much so over the centuries. Heaven’s Angels will be sent to pick up the torch of the Gospel and carry on right through the Great Tribulation.

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, an enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, nay; lest while ye gather up the tare, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tare, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:24-30
