Destroyed By Snakes

  1. 1 Corinthians 10:1-5 ESV

    For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

    I believe the Lord Jesus wants me to talk about a different set of “fathers” today, i.e. many of the fathers and leaders of our nation (the USA), which includes many of the “fathers,” i.e. the leaders within the church down through the generations, too. And, this may apply in other nations, as well.

    Taken from “A Common Purpose” (8/23/15): “It appears that the USA was founded on the idea of the eventuality of a one-world order, i.e. that our country was somehow to be the catalyst to lead the way to this rule of the beast, which is symbolized in our Great Seal. The beast is a conglomerate of globalists who exist within various areas of power throughout the globe, i.e. such as within governments, banks, corporations, education, and the media, etc. Included within this beast is also the Trilateral Commission, the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group. It is comprised of the elite, wealthy and powerful of the world. Its goal is to bring about a totalitarian world government and one-world religion. Some people like to call this a conspiracy theory, yet we know that the Bible foretold that this would come” (1). [See: Revelation 13.]

    Ok, so the Lord led me today to read a news article titled “Waiting for a Shutdown to End in Disaster.” The premise of the article is that it is going to take some major disaster in our nation to get our government up and running again, and to get our leaders to work together on a solution for the standstill. And, the article gave several suggestions, too, of the types of disasters which may take place in our nation in order to turn things around.

    Now, the Lord is showing me the truth behind the statements made in that article, which is basically the same message he has been giving me for the past fourteen years. And, that is that the US government, as we know it, is not the true government of the USA. A shadow government of the elite of the world has operated in the shadows as the de facto government of these United States for some time now. Only now they are coming out of the shadows, like a slithering snake, and they are getting ready to take over our nation, which was the plan from the very beginning.

    The thing of it is, though, is that our leaders are party to this takeover, for they have been the ones going throughout the world into these other nations, taking over their nations for this “beast” one-world government, and for many years now. And, all the tricks they pulled in all these other nations, they are now pulling here, too. And, one of their tricks is play-acting, which they kind of tell you they are doing if you can read between the lines, for the truth is “hidden in plain sight,” so to speak.

    Our leaders within our government, and many within our churches, too, are two-faced, deceitful, treacherous, betrayers of the people, who secretly plot evil against their own people while on the surface they give a false impression of their true actions and intentions. Yet, they are actors in a play, playing the roles they were given, and so what we read and see in the news is mainly all scripted. For, there is no right and left, but they are all on the same team just pretending to be against one another. For, they all serve this beast, and they are working together for the takeover of our nation.

    But, it isn’t just that their intention is to permanently shut down the US government, but it is to destroy the church, too. For, their goal is to destroy the old order so that, out of the ashes of the old order, the new order, i.e. of the beast (of Revelation), can now rule the world. So, they have to create all this chaos and all these problems so that they have cause to put the old order to death, so that a new order can rise and take over.

    In the church, what they have done is to destroy the gospel of Jesus Christ and to bring in a new gospel of the flesh of man which demands no death to sin and no living to righteousness. And, they have also demonized the “Old Rugged Cross” gospel and its messengers in order to pave the way for this new gospel of men, and also to prepare the way for this one-world religion. For, this new gospel of the flesh compromises with the world and with this one-world order and one-world religion, and it persecutes those who would stand on the truth of God’s Word and not deny the name of Jesus.

    1 Corinthians 10:6-13 ESV

    Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did. Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

    I believe this rule of the beast is coming as a judgment on the nations of the world, but also on the church which has been living in adultery against her Lord with the world and with the US government, which is in bed with the beast one-world order, which then serves Satan.

    And, so God is saying to his people to not follow after the ways of the world and of the flesh of man and to not unite themselves with this evil government in union with the beast and with Satan. He is saying to his people to come out from among them so that we do not share in their sins and in their punishment, for their sins are piled high to heaven (See: Revelation 18).

    We should test everything we hear, for one, against the Word of God (in context) and in prayer, asking the Lord to open our eyes to the deceptions and the tricks so that we don’t fall into Satan’s traps. We need to have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. And, we need to be doers of the Word and not hearers only, lest we get destroyed spiritually by this slithering snake (beast) which is deceiving the masses, and by its counterpart, the false prophet (false church/gospel).

    1 Corinthians 10:14-22 ESV

    Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. Consider the people of Israel: are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar? What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

    What the Lord is trying to get across here today, I believe, is to get us not only to examine our own lives to make certain that we are walking in obedience to our Lord, and that we are not living according to the flesh, but he wants to open our eyes to the many ways in which we are being deceived by clever enchanters so that we don’t fall prey to their deceptions and fall into their traps.

    He also does not want his people to be in unity with this evil government or any evil government (in America via the 501c3). We are not to be partners with the ungodly, and we are not to turn God’s house, his church, his body into a marketplace, which is what has been done. And, he does not want us drinking of the cup of demons and their false grace gospel which demands no obedience to Christ and no turning away from sin.

    So, he wants us all to see today that Satan is behind our government(s), that he is working to bring this beast into world domination via a one-world government and one-world religion, and to prepare us that disaster is truly on the way. But, I believe that God is going to use this disaster to get a hold of the hearts of his people and that he will turn them back to him in revival.

    Awaken the Dawn

    An Original Work / January 15, 2013
    Based off Psalm 57 (NIV 1984)

    O my God, have mercy on me!
    In the Lord, my soul takes refuge.
    In the shadow of Your wings, Lord,
    I find shelter till the storms pass.
    I cry out to my God Most High.
    He fulfills His purpose for me.
    He sent His Son to die for me,
    So I could be saved.

    I am in the midst of lions;
    Men whose teeth are spears and arrows;
    Whose tongues are sharp; words accusing.
    They spread a net, my feet to catch.
    They dug a pit, in hopes I’d fall.
    O God, be exalted o’er all.
    Let Your glory shine to all men,
    So they may be saved.

    Steadfast is my heart, O my God;
    I will sing of all Your wonders.
    Awake, my soul! Sing praise to God!
    Early I will rise and praise Him!
    I’ll praise God among the nations;
    I will sing among the peoples.
    God’s love reaches to the heavens,
    So we may be saved.
