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.
