There is a great shaking coming in the Christian Church as Jesus’ Second Coming draws nearer.
Awareness of the times we live in
From all of the prophetic signs being fulfilled around us, we know that we’re very close to the second coming of Jesus. Evil is pervasive. Creation is unraveling – everything that God created is being reversed. The world is plunged into chaos and evil rulers are plotting to exterminate 80% of humanity. Most Christians understand that. But there is a real lack of understanding of what is going on behind the scenes, in heaven. Let me explain.
We’re living in the end time Day of Atonement – cleansing of the sanctuary – protracted cleansing, a long day that started in 1844 and is ongoing right now. The 2300-day prophecy given in Daniel 8:14 ended on October 22, 1844.
What is the Day of Atonement? Two goats were offered on that day, both for a sin offering. One goat, called the Lord’s goat, would be sacrificed for the purpose of cleansing the sanctuary from all of the sins of the people of Israel accumulated over the course of the year. This blood was clean, there was no other sin upon this blood. The High Priest would enter into the Most Holy Place of the Heavenly Sanctuary and sprinkle the blood of this goat on the veil that divided the Holy and the Most Holy Place, and would then work his way outward to the court sprinkling that clean blood all over the sanctuary and over the altar of sacrifice. This clean blood would wash away the sins that had collected in the Heavenly Sanctuary over the course of the year. By moving from the most inward place to the most outward place the High Priest was removing the sins from the sanctuary.
The second goat called Azazel would symbolically bear all of the sins being removed from the sanctuary. It’s from this ceremony in ancient Israel that we get the word “scapegoat”. The high priest laid his hands upon the head of this second goat and confessed over it the sins of the people. Then the victim was handed over to a man who was standing by for this purpose, and he led the goat to an isolated region and then it let go in the wilderness. That goat would never be seen again.
The Day of Atonement is a time of judgment. Since that day Jesus entered the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary where He’s interceding on our behalf as the judgment of God’s people is ongoing. In 1 Peter 4:17 Bible says judgment just come to the house of God first – Christians are judged first, and that judgment has been going on since 1844. Judgment of the dead Christians first, followed by the judgment of the Christians who are alive today.
Let me explain how this works. The dead in Christ were judged first, followed by the wicked dead. The judgment of the dead is followed by the judgment of the living, first those who are living in Christ, followed by those who are living in sin.
What does this mean? This has some very serious implications:
Eternal life or death is being decided right now. I have no evidence biblical or otherwise to say that the judgment of the living has already started, but my personal sense is that it has. When the judgment of the living Christians is over, our eternal fate will have been decided.
The winds of strife are being held back until all of God’s people are sealed. The winds of strife is the great tribulation. This is explained in Revelation 7:
After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed.
We’re in the time of sealing right now. Those who are given God’s seal will be given grace to remain alive throughout the great time of trouble that is almost upon us. Those who are faithful to God’s law and keep His commandments will be sealed. Those who are not sealed doesn’t mean that they’re unfaithful, but it means that God will put them to rest during that period because He knows they won’t be able to endure it or it means that they will be martyrs for the cause of Jesus. They’re part of the great multitude of the saved mentioned several times in the Book of Revelation.
What about the others? Well, judgment will be pronounced us one by one as we come up before the heavenly courtroom – first the dead and then the living. This process will come to an end when every living person has been judged. At that point the heavenly sanctuary will be closed. Jesus will no longer defend anyone. It’ll be too late to repent. We call this the close of grace or the close of probation. The Angel explained this to John the Revelator in Revelation 22:10: “And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[e] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
In ancient Israel when the Day of Atonement was taking place, the people prayed, fasted, humbled themselves before the Lord, and were totally focused on what was going on inside the sanctuary. Anyone who was reveling and ignoring what was going on there was expelled and cast out from his people. That’s how serious and grave this time is.
Yet what are we doing today? Most Christians are doing exactly as Jesus described: “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)
Listen up before it’s too late. It’s not business as usual. We need to have a sense of urgency. We need to be aware of the times we’re living. We can’t go on like before. The “time of trouble such as never has been before no nor ever shall be” is fast approaching.
The Close of Grace
But understand this: when probation closes meaning when grace is finished and it’ll be too late to repent, Jesus won’t show up yet. When Noah finished preaching and God told him to get into the ark, he and his family were in the ark for 7 days before it started to rain. People back then thought Noah was crazy or an alarmist. So people will think like about us teachers now, because there will be a delay between the close of grace and the day when Jesus arrives. But by the time Jesus arrives it’ll be too late to repent. The door of grace will be shut by then. He who is unjust will be unjust still, he who is holy will be holy still. Your eternal destiny will have already been decided at such a time as you know not. You won’t receive any sign that your name was called in heaven and your case examined. You won’t know until Jesus’ second coming.
The Winds of Strife
Let’s recap what’s going on right now: We’re on the verge of entering the Great Tribulation. Those who believe in the secret rapture have been greatly deceived. The secret rapture is a lie. There is no such thing. All of the biblical evidence is clear: God’s people will go through it. There is not one biblical example of God’s people being wisked away and being spared their trials. They always endured the trial. The Israelis had to pass through the Red Sea, the three Hebrew young men had to go through the fire, Daniel found himself in the lion’s den. Through it all the Lord delivered them with a mighty hand, as will be the case now. But the church will be here for the great tribulation.
Let’s go back to the unraveling of creation, because in the book of Genesis we have the key to how end time events will unfold. In my previous podcast 019 – Prophecy Update: Crime Against Humanity and Nature I demonstrated from the Book of Genesis how Satan has come against everything God created during creation week. The earth, the sky, the waters, the vegetation, the animals have all been tampered with and are in an advanced state of corruption. We know that if we continue on the path we are we’ll self-destroy. But the most recent transgression has been the legalizing of gay marriage.
There’s only one thing remaining from creation week that still stands: God’s command to keep the Sabbath holy. When the devil comes against that and outlaws Sabbath observance then you know that the end is upon us. That will be the start of the great tribulation. God’s people will be persecuted for obeying His commandments. One World Government and One World Religion under the Pope are almost completely in place now. When that process is finished, we’ll see the Vatican working with world government starting with the US government to establish the Sunday law enforcing Sunday worship. And that is the beginning of the end.
So going back to the Book of Revelation, where exactly do we stand? I believe we’re in the start of what is known as the Loud Cry of Revelation 18. After the Three Angels’ Message of Revelation 14 has been given, the message of the second angel swells into a loud cry to warn all the people of the earth.
What was the message of the Three Angels of Revelation 14?
The first angel says worship the Creator. To worship the Creator we have to worship Him on the Sabbath – there’s no other option.
The second angel says “Babylon is fallen, is fallen” because she made all nations drunk with the wine (meaning the false teachings) of her spiritual adultery.
The third angel warns about the punishment that will befall those who take the mark of the beast.
And what then is the Loud Cry of Revelation 18? It’s the invitation for God’s people to come out of spiritual Babylon, to stop drinking the wine of false teachings that have them drunk and enslaved to a counterfeit spiritual system. God’s people are being asked to accept God’s truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This is what I’m asking you to do today. You have a choice, and I’m choose right. This means you have to find out what the truth is, accept the truth and change your life to embrace the truth.
The Great Shaking
A great shaking is coming within the Church, meaning within the Christian world. Don’t be complacent. Don’t assume you’re saved. Don’t assume you know or you’ve been taught the truth.
The Lord is wroth against Israel, spiritual Israel, His people. He’s wroth because they’ve departed from His ways. The Church leadership, the Roman Papacy, has committed spiritual adultery, seeking worldly power instead of godly power, fornicating with kings and presidents instead of ministering to them. The daughters of the harlot church, meaning most of the Protestant churches, have followed in her footsteps, accepting false teachings that were instated in the years after Christ’s death as a compromise with paganism. As a result of these false teachings they violate God’s holy law and worship on the day of the sun instead of worshipping on God’s holy day.
The Lord is wroth against the unworthy shepherds who are drunk with the wine of Babylon and teach their flocks false doctrine, they tell them what they want to hear. They turn their eyes away from sin and teach that all we need to do is believe in Jesus and we’ll be saved. Well, the demons also believe, and that doesn’t mean that they’re saved. God’s people are like sheep scattered across the globe. The evil shepherds have fed themselves and have not fed their flock. These unworthy shepherds will be greatly punished for not letting their sheep know that they’re standing on the edge of an eternal precipice, that if they don’t line up with God’s Ten Commandments—all ten of them—they’re going to die eternally without hope. But the blood of their flock shall be required of them.
Just because you profess to be a Christian doesn’t mean that in heaven you’re counted among God’s people. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23). Did you hear that? Those who practice lawlessness are commandment breakers. They won’t make it.
God’s true people keep His commandments, because His commandments are not grievous. And those false teachers, unworthy shepherds who teach God’s people to break His law saying that the Ten Commandments have been nailed to the cross will be considered the least in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:19 says: “Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Therefore I’m pleading with you today. “Come out of her my people”, come out of spiritual Babylon and come into the fold of safety. The Catholic Church with her traditions that go against the Word of God is Babylon. The Protestant churches that have adopted the teachings of the Catholic Church is also part of Babylon. The New Age and its pagan doctrines and practices is yet another form of Babylon. “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.” (Revelation 18:4)
God is calling His people out of Babylon because now is the time of the gathering of the flock under one shepherd. Soon will be the time of the reaping of the great harvest, when the wheat and the tares will be divided. Jesus is coming soon to reap the earth’s harvest and the grapes of wrath. “Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped” (Rev 14:14-16). After that Jesus will gather up the grapes of wrath, and blood will cover the land.
Only God’s remnant people will remain, His true faithful servants, Sabbath-keepers who live holy lives and work diligently to overcome sin. Everyone else will be washed away by the evil flood that’s coming. God’s judgment upon the earth will be without mercy, for the time of mercy will have expired.
A Call to Repentance
The Lord has asked me—as He’s asking many of His servants across the globe right now—to deliver this message of warning to you. This may be an unpleasant, uncomfortable message for you. But if I don’t give you this message, your blood will be required of me for not blowing the trumpet. Therefore I’m here to blow the trumpet. And the Lord is sending out many of His faithful people to blow the trumpet across the land.
Show time is over. It’s time to come back to the Lord with all your heart. It’s time to repent of any sins. Are you breaking any of the Ten Commandments? Are you being faithful in tithes and offerings? Are you involved in yoga and meditation and other New Age practices? Do you have long-standing grudges against anyone? Does your anger get the best of you? There are so many ways in which we can offend God and grieve the Holy Spirit.
Whatever is in your life that’s not of God, now is the time to let it go. Ask the Lord for grace – where sin abounds grace does abound much more. If you sincerely ask the Lord to help you remove sin from your life all of heaven will be involved in your deliverance. You just have to take the first step: repent and confess, and God will send all manner of helpers and assistance so that you can start a new life.
If you have any uncleanness in your life, you’re still in the outer court of the heavenly sanctuary. That’s where the world lives. If you’re barely in the inner court, you’ve been justified, and you still have a long way to go to where Jesus is. You need to move into sanctification, into the Holy Place, and from there into the Most Holy Place, the place of glorification. That’s where Jesus is waiting for you. Those who will be sealed are those “who follow the Lamb wherever He goes”.
Repent of worldliness. Leave the world behind. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
Repent of lukewarmness. God said He wishes you were hot or cold. He’ll spew you out of His mouth because you’re warm. Don’t let that happen to you. Get on fire for the Lord. There isn’t that much time left. Every moment of our day our priority should be to please the Lord and to further His kingdom in every way that we can.
And the most important question of all is, have you been born again? Have you accepted Jesus as your savior? Have you been baptized by full immersion? You must get baptized into the truth, because unless you’re born of water and the Spirit, you cannot enter the kingdom of God. To walk with Jesus in the Spirit you have to be born into the Spirit. Beyond accepting Him as your savior, have you accepted Him as your Lord and Master? Are you willing to commit to a life of service to Him? Do you want your name to be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Pray with me: Lord Jesus, I come to you exactly as I am. Please forgive me all my sins. Give me a new heart and a new life. I want to be born again of water and of the Spirit and follow You wherever You go. Please help me to surrender everything to You that You may perfect it. Forgive me for my lukewarmness and my lack of commitment. I rededicate my life to You today. Please use me as a vessel for Your Holy Spirit and perfect everything concerning me. I love You and want to spend the rest of eternity with You. Amen.
When we understand that we’re dealing with life or death issues, with eternal issues, then our prayers have power because we pray fervently to secure our eternal destiny. Pray to be prepared for your imminent judgment, when your name will be called out in heaven and the books will be opened with the records of your life until now. Pray that you’ll be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
Don’t be satisfied with lies. Satan has spun such a web of lies it’s hard to find truth any more. Most of the world will wonder after the beast and will worship on the day of the sun. Become a seeker of the truth. Don’t believe the wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing. Don’t be satisfied with what you hear in Church or on Christian television. Find out for yourself if what your pastor is teaching you is the whole truth. Study your bible. If you don’t develop the love of the truth, God will send you strong delusion and you’ll end up following the beast. Listen to this very strong passage in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12: “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” You’ll be judged according to the light that was offered to you, whether you received it or not is your responsibility.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Accept nothing other than the truth and nothing less than the whole truth. A half-truth is a lie. Millions of Protestant Reformers died that you and I may have the truth. That truth is worth dying for, because we’ll be resurrected to everlasting life. “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it” (Luke 9:24).
Pray without ceasing. The only thing that will prepare us to stand is prayer. The only thing that will prepare the church to stand is intercession. Pray and fast so that your prayer will have more power. Pray for deliverance from temptation and sin. Pray to be delivered from worldliness and all satanic seductions and illusions. Pray for the veil to be lifted from your eyes so that you may discern the truth. Pray for forgiveness of sin, for purity, for holiness. Pray to shoot arrows of light into the kingdom of darkness. Pray to let Satan know he can’t have your children or steal your blessings. Pray for Holy Spirit fire to do God’s work. Pray for boldness to be a powerful witness for God’s kingdom. Pray for the anointing to become a prayer warrior in God’s end time army.
Redeem the time for the days are evil. Don’t waste one moment of your time on the things of this world. It’s all going to burn away!
When the winds of strife start to blow, will you be blown away, or will you be part of the faithful remnant who will stand firm until the very end? I pray that you will be one of those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
