A Berean’s Breakfast…
The severity of this past week will be looked at very soon as the week that changed America! I am not referring to things getting better, but far worse than any of us would have imagined!
Things changed in a nonosecond! In the “blink of an eye!” How could this happen so quickly, so completely? I wrote just recently about the Greek word, “tetelestai.” “English translation; “It is Finished!” In the Bible, I have never forgotten and have always wondered about this verse below…
Revelation 18:19 And they threw dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich from her prosperity, for in one hour she has been laid waste!’
In it’s entirety, chapter 18 describes an event so devastating to a city, maybe a nation, that looks very much like America! Verses 2-3 set the stage for the fall of this “system,” this nation…
Revelation 18:2-3 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. 3For all the nations have fallen because of the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich from the excessive wealth of her luxury.”
I keep hearing people refer to this time as “1984,”’the Orwell novel! The insight that he had back in the 60’s is very disturbing! But the end of the Bible is not fiction but prophecy!
Verses 4-8 go on to continue to describe her, again so much like America!
4,I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive any of her plagues; 5for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her offenses. 6Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. 7To the extent that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, to the same extent give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ 8For this reason in one day her plagues will come, plague and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.”
Plagues?? You mean more than one? Or new strains of the one we have now??
From chapters 18-22, the end story folds out! Keeping the sins of America in mind, the location of our nation on earth, the history of the sins committed, ships sitting of our shores watching, this isn’t the literal “Babylon!” But Bible scriptures describes this filthy, sinful corrupt system/nation that represents evil and the complete opposite of a Godly nation! And now is judged!!
If you have never read, I don’t mean you flipped through a few Sunday School stories, I mean completely read the Bible, asking God to reveal its true meaning, you better consider it now! Because, it too will be taken away from “the people,” burned again, outlawed and destroyed!
The GREAT NEWS, the GOOD NEWS, the BIBLE, has deliver believers the TRUTH, the message of SALVATION, so as not to have to go through the WRATH, that is now about to be poured out on those who have rejected the free gift of Mercy and Grace, offered by Jesus Christ at the cross! Here is the promise to the, “True Church, true believers, the “Bride of Christ!”
Revelation 3:10-11 Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. 11I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.
“Keep you from!!”’not take you through, but FROM, translation of the Greek word meaning “out of!!”
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 1Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers,a you have no need to have anything written to you. 2For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5For you are all childrenb of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
“PEACE and SECURITY??” I hear this new administration already proclaiming this lie! Soon they will say, “Bow down and worship them!” Be afraid… be very afraid if you have rejected Jesus Christ and accepted the LIE!
I think these messages I have shared for nearly ten years now will soon be rejected, scrubbed, removed and made unacceptable by the, “authorities!” I have done what I was called to do!
Maranatha! COME QUICKLY LORD, JESUS!!Jan 9, 2021, 7:08 AM
