The Final Decade
The next 1260 days, after the ‘Mid-Point’ of the seven (7) year Tribulation, is known as the “Wrath of God.” During these days (3.5 years/42 months) the world and its inhabitants will see and experience death and destruction as has never before been witnessed at the hands and direction of the Antichrist [Rev 13:10] and by God’s ‘Bowl’ judgments [Great Tribulation judgments] poured out from heaven. The death tolls will be staggering and terrible [Rev 16].
The Antichrist’s killing rampages will be unparalleled in human history [Rev13:7-10]. The earth and its people will also bear the consequences of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Trumpet judgments along with the 1st through 7th “Bowl” judgments [Rev 16:1-17].
At the end of the 1260 days, there will be 45 days when the Antichrist mobilizes the world’s armies under his command and prepares them for the Battle of Armageddon [Rev 16:16]. At the end of this 45 day period Jesus Christ will return to earth, destroy the armies of the Antichrist, and thereafter set foot on mount Zion establishing His kingdom and millennial (1000 year) reign of the new heaven and earth.
In conjunction with Christ’s return the 7th Trumpet will sound, the 7th Bowl of Wrath will be poured out upon the earth, a great earthquake will occur, the Antichrist and the ‘False Prophet’ [Rev 13:11-15] will both be thrown into the ‘Lake of Fire’ [Rev 19:20] and Satan will be chained and imprisoned in the abyss during Jesus’ millennial kingdom one-thousand year reign [Rev 20:1-3].
The end of the age and the destruction of Satan, evil and unrighteousness will have been accomplished as prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments. (*Post-Tribulation Rapture believers trust it occurs here [1Corinthians 15:51-52]).
In total these different time frames combined add up to 3635 days (approximately Ten  years) or the “Final Decade.” These observations and calculations span the time periods between the Ezekiel War and the culminating end of the Final Decade when Christ’s millennial kingdom is established.
Join me next time for a graphic depiction of the Final Decade.
The Final Decade
Using the Ezekiel War victory as our beginning, these are some of the events and consequences those still alive may witness and/or experience. With God’s victory for Israel ending the Ezekiel War and as the dust starts to settle, negotiations begin between Israel and its vanquished enemies. One of the leading characters in this process will subsequently enamor many as he works to bring all sides together in the final acceptance of a “Peace and Security” plan between Israel and ‘the nations’ playing a major role in this 'end of the age.'
During the 1,040 days (2 years, 10 months + -) following the Ezekiel War the renown of this statesman’s spotlighted arrival and efforts on the world stage will produce notoriety and fame. He will be recognized as a preeminent power broker, negotiator, and political insider. His efforts will focus on garnering political support while promoting a treaty to guarantee “peace and safety” in the middle east [2 These 2:9, 11]. His rise to world prominence through prolific international diplomatic skill and leadership will be noteworthy and celebrated. In this 1,040 day period there will be rejoicing as it will be heralded a great era of peace, particularly for Israel. The official ‘certified’ signatory treaty may or may not be ratified by all participants before the end of this 1,040 day time frame.
However, it will finally be confirmed by all parties at or near the end of this 1,040 day period. As part of the treaty stipulations, these are a few of its ramification possibilities; sacrificial worship by orthodox Jews could be reinstated or started. The ‘Third Temple’ construction will start, and/or be completed. A selection of 144,000 Jews (12,000 from each Tribe of Israel) will be chosen for (New Testament Messianic) instruction and training as to the spiritual relationship context and content of New Testament Gospel writings [Rev 7:4-8].
Toward or at the end of the 1,040 days the “Peace and Security” treaty will be finalized by confirmation or ratification. With this action, the Seventh (7th) Seal in heaven will be broken on the scroll held by Jesus Christ and there will then be a “One-half (½) Hour of Silence” in heaven [Rev 8:1]. We have no way of knowing how long this ‘One-half hour or its duration may be. However, at the end of this ‘half hour’ time frame, the ‘First Trumpet’ blast in heaven will occur initiating the start of the seven year “Tribulation" and the prophesied Trumpet judgments [Rev 8:7].
The first half (3-½ year period) of the seven years Tribulation, called the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ starts with this first Trumpet. During the next 1260 days (3.5 years/42 months) the world and its inhabitants will experience the “Wrath [judgments] of Jesus Christ” described in scripture [Rev 6:17]. The consequences of the [first four] “Trumpet Judgments.” are explained in Rev 8:7-12.
("Pre-Tribulation Rapture” believers trust that the ‘Rapture’ occurs here, with the First Trumpet [1Thes 4:16-17], thus removing them from the coming judgments. [Rev 3:10])
During these 1260 days God’s “Two Witnesses” will be on the grounds of the Temple Mount warning of the coming judgments upon the earth. They will be teaching on the steps of the 'Third Temple' that Jesus is the Christ and (Jewish) Messiah [Rev 11:3, 5-6]. At the end of this 1260 day time frame we will have reached ‘Mid Tribulation’ (half-way/mid-point of the seven years). This is a climactic moment for everything related to the Tribulation. Everyone still alive will face terrible choices of potential horrible death and destruction as judgmental consequences continue to rain/reign upon the earth and its inhabitants.
In the 30 days between the two 1260 day periods of the 7 year Tribulation:
The Antichrist’s army will invade and conquer Israel, establishing occupancy of Jerusalem.
The Two Witnesses will be killed [Rev 11:7].
Their bodies will lie in the street for three and one-half days [Rev 11:8].
Satan will be cast out of heaven, down to the earth [Rev 12:9, 12].
His spirit will embody the man who becomes the Antichrist with Satan’s power, (by God’s authority) to reign and rule over the earth for the next 1260 days (3.5 years/42 months) [Dan 12:11].
Additionally, the 'Mark of the Beast' will be instituted for control over who can "buy and sell".
The ‘abyss’ will be opened allowing evil spiritual beings to rise and torture for five months, [Rev 9:2-5] those who have taken the ‘Mark of the Beast' [Rev 13:16-17].
Many Jews who are still alive will flee from Israel to Petra in Jordan [Rev 12:14].
The 5th Trumpet will sound in heaven [Rev 9:1].
The ‘Two Witnesses’ will rise and be resurrected to heaven in sight of the entire world [Rev 11:11].
(Mid Tribulation Rapture believers trust the Rapture will happen here, at the 5th Trumpet’s blast, removing them from the coming judgments of the ‘Great Tribulation'
The Mark of the Beast will be applied to everyone in the world who desires to follow the Antichrist [Rev 13:16].
Those who reject this ‘Mark’ will be hunted, captured and if caught put to death [Rev 13:15].
The Antichrist will occupy the Temple, declaring himself to be ‘god’. His image will be placed in the center of the Temple for worldwide worship [Rev 13:14]. This action is known as the “Abomination of Desolation" [Dan 9:27, Mt 24:15].
Jews in Israel who do not escape and are captured will be put to death [Dan 8:24].
All who reject and refuse the Mark will be put to death if found [Rev 12:17].
For these 30 days the Antichrist’s takeover and initial reign of terror, death, and destruction will run rampant across the world.
Join me next time as the world and its inhabitants suffer the “Great Tribulation” events.
DOXOLOGY: Preparation or Victim?
Our second observational event to watch for is scheduled on May 18-21, 2021. The “Davos World Economic Forum” will hold its annual meeting. If you are unfamiliar with this group, it’s a collection of the world’s richest individuals, corporations and businesses along with prominent and celebrity ‘movers and shakers’ (billed as “thinkers”) who gather in Davos Switzerland, (this year it’s to be held in Bürgenstock, Weggis, Switzerland).
The fundamental effort of this group is summed up in their proposal for a “Great Economic Reset.” An effort to reconstruct the foundations of global economic structures. With an emphasis on worldwide social initiatives as precursors of an eventual economic and financial system combination. As changes to the fiat currency systems used by and through ‘central bank accounts’ digital banking, the underlying efforts by the World Economic Forum group will be presented as an umbrella for global economic, financial and social changes.
Using and promoting initial interest and actions through worldwide recognition of “climate change” and new "Green Energy Initiatives" as its first rallying cries will allow business and governments aligned with and associated with the World Economic Forum to aid in erecting a new straw man of global corporate cooperatives under social unification labels and banners. Their proclamations of proposed accomplishments and dispersals will be presented as a collective effort to address the continuing scourge of economic suffering in the world.
They will be furthering their influence of elite wealth inequality by incorporating global social movements’ support with ideas and efforts toward the ways and means of production and distribution. However, the inevitable result will be the rich will get richer at the expense of the middle and poorer classes of societies around the world. It is imperative to remember everything comes down to economics. And it is about control, not equality.
The “Climate Change” and "Green Initiatives" talking points are stepping stones in coordinated and planned efforts for future economic control. The sparks of this authoritarian control which will begin in earnest in 2021-22 will be functioning at sustainable levels by the mid to late years of this decade. Sadly, climate decimation and its deteriorating consequences have exceeded all stops or corrections we might hope for or propose to alter or eradicate. We are battling the forces of nature with inadequate tools and compromised attitudes supplanted by individual and collective needs, desires, and avarice.
We will never be able to curtail or reverse the damage we as a species have wrought on our environment and subsequently upon ourselves through industrialization without guard rails over the past two-hundred fifty years. Why is it an impossible task? Plain and simple: greed. Personal and corporate greed long ago outstripped any advancements to curtail measures we might have imagined in order to diminish the damage, let alone address the impending and further the continued suffering ahead.
What does this mean for us? You and I cannot change the directions or goals of governments, uber wealthy individuals, corporations, or elite influential groups. We can however be cognizant and aware of the outcomes and how to avoid being drawn into complicity of this dismantling of society for as long as possible. We can know what to expect, how to respond and how to protect our families. We can know of the fallout ahead and be prepared for the path of spiritual salvation as the world proceeds to destroy itself through lies and deceit.
The world will inevitably revert to its prototypical economic ‘masters and slaves’ scenario. The fundamental one that has been in operation for the last six thousand years. A two-tiered economic class system housed within a 'one world' scenario. These seedlings are being sown in order for the roots of inequality to be spread and accepted as the 'new normal' giving rise to the harvest of propaganda ideas. These are all preparations for the soon to be revealed Antichrist to establish his worldwide tyrannical rule, political and economic domination that have been foretold and will come to pass. We are living in and experiencing the steps needed for these changes to take place. You can be prepared, or you can be a victim. The choice is yours. Now is the time to learn more.
Join me next time when we examine the latest changes in our world that affect our beliefs and actions.
The Final Decade
God’s grace is so great that He made the path to spiritual salvation and everlasting life as easy as possible. His unconditional love and forgiveness that leads to His eternal presence is enveloped by these two scriptural references; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, and Romans 10:9-10, 17. When death arrives know and believe with your heart, mind and soul the faith actions of these two and you’ll have everlasting life and peace, irrespective of how you may pass from this mortal life.
The believer and follower of Jesus Christ will understand and be strengthened. Scripture makes evident a series of occurrences prophesied to aide us in determining when our spiritual response should be “on high alert and at the ready.” Being engaged spiritually prepares those interested in embracing the Lord. Active spiritual grounding and strength will allow you to face the challenges ahead without fear or consternation. Bible prophesy details certain time frames and durations of and between observable ‘End Times’ events. Every person alive without God’s spiritual protection when these ‘Last Days’ occur will potentially experience fear, danger and death in light of God’s judgmental wrath.
Let’s examine this coming final decade of mankind’s ‘superiority.’ How it’s justified as unrighteous, how it will be put asunder by the wrath and indignation of God almighty, and why spiritual salvation is dependent upon accepting Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
If you’re aware of the unfolding events in the middle east in and around Israel, you know of the current (pre-military) situation escalating in Syria between Israel and its neighbors. We are told in the book of Ezekiel of an impending invasion of Israel [Ez 38-39] by a coalition of countries under the lead and direction of a Turkey, Iran and Russia coalition (the Leopard, the Lion, and the Bear). [Dan 7:3-6, Rev13:2]
This military incursion is predated by agreements between Israel and various other countries in the middle east region (notably many of the recent Trump administration “Abrahamic Accords” signatories) that will serve as a fundamental division of separatist ethnic and nationalistic groups described in bible prophesy. [1 Chronicles 1:9, 1:32]
When this coalition's invasion from the north (Syrian territory) into the ‘mountains of Israel’ (Golan Heights/West Bank region) is imminent, facing overwhelming numbers of enemy troops and armaments with all hope lost for Israel, many countries will believe Israel’s final destruction is at hand. [Ez 38:13]
When all talk is put aside and Israel’s military defeat appears inevitable, God Himself will intervene on Israel’s behalf. The victory for Israel will be decisive and irrevocable. The world will see God’s devotion and love for His chosen people, the Jews. His victory over Israel’s enemies will cause not only devastation to those invading armies it will also show His victorious living presence to the rest of the world. [Ez 38:16-23] One of the outcomes of His actions on Israel’s behalf will be a worldwide revival for and of belief in Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
It will also verify and validate the Bible’s Old and New Testaments as God’s recorded words. Will everyone be enlightened and accepting to a point of belief and discipleship?
Of course not. But many will come to know of God’s nature and character through His Holy Spirit and belief in Jesus as His Son; mankind’s redeemer/savior [1Thess 4:1-2, 8].
As significant as this victory’s clarion call will be for both immediate and long term ramifications to the world’s people and more specifically to Israel and her neighbors, the subsequent events to be set in motion by its occurrence will (I believe) initiate the actuation of mankind’s “Final Decade” of this age. More specifically, these precursor years plus the final seven years of “The Last Days” described in biblical prophecy [Dan 9:27] are part of this "Final Decade."
There are many events, outcomes and actions related to these “Last Days” which will not be covered here. I am presenting occurrences I believe will be undeniably observable and related to the unmistakable ‘End Times.’ Again, specific dates are not as important as awareness of these actions by those having spiritual understanding and its applied strength to live through (if possible) these events.
Join me next time as we examine the post conflict fallout.
DOXOLOGY: Preparation or Victim?
Among the more difficult tasks in understanding and deciphering events prophesied to take place during the coming future End Times (or Last Days) are specific determinable correlations between events and their dates of occurrence. This is particularly cogent when trying to clarify the challenges presented by descriptions in the Old Testament by prophets such as Daniel and Ezekiel, alongside New Testament prophetic visions by John in the last book of the bible; “Revelation”.
If you’ve had the time to read my series’ “Hidden in Plain View”, “Out of the Shadows”, or “Time Lines” (www.manaopublishing.com/articles) concerning posited End Times events and their consequences for believers and non-believers alike, you’ll notice events are related to spiritual growth and purpose rather than exclusively focusing on when they will actually occur.
Many think the timing of events presented in the book of Revelation are sequential. It’s believed by others this bible text’s events are not necessarily chronological. This series (Doxology) is an attempt to frame explanation and sequence by distillation to show readers connections between prophesy and existential reality as future history revealed. More specific reading and applied extrapolations of End Times events are available in my new series, “The Final Decade.”
As with previous postings the underpinning effort herein is to provide comprehensive understanding for those desiring to know more. And precautions for those who may experience firsthand described events of the ‘Last Days.’ In either case for readers now or in the future, the fundamental belief paving the way of salvation is encapsulated in these two scriptural references: 1Corinthians 15:1-4, and Romans 10:9-10, 17.
These hold for the believer in Christ, the foundational pillar of salvation’s redemption. For the few reading today, there is comfort in stepping on the spiritual path. However, its poignancy for many during the strife and struggle of life in the Last Days will be invaluable. Whether today or in the Tribulation years ahead the taproot of salvation remains understanding the cognitive and spiritual relevance of salvation’s scripture.
Let’s examine two global actions that will occur in the near future which illustrate the power of preparation verses victimization. The first is a reset or reconstruct of 'fiat' to digital currencies. This action may very well turn out to be a form of financial fraud for those who have put their faith in paper money. Effective Jan 25, 2021 the U.S. Federal Reserve is scheduled to consider and possibly enact steps to establish for implementation a new Central Bank ‘digital currency’ model.
The easiest way to understand this is to know that the ‘Fed’s’ digital currency system (“Fed Dollars”) will eventually become everyone’s ‘bank.’ This action will accomplish several things. It will gradually eliminate the banking system as we know it and additionally, it will consolidate control of the U.S. financial system.
These changes will most likely be incremental over the next few years. However, by mid-decade replacement of the U. S. (and possibly other nations’) fiat currency with “digital dollars" should be accomplished or well on its way to effective implementation. The U.S. Federal Reserve’s accommodation to this monetary modification will probably be initially employed through two or more innocuous methods; first by government agencies' payments (i.e., Social Security, Disability, Annuities, IRS, Health and Human Service program recipients) by transferring their fund beneficiary payees as the first ‘clients’ of this new credit and debit program.
Second, within commercial retail buying and selling exchanges. Use of scare tactics as an attempt to curtail or stop pandemic viral transmissions wrapped up in propaganda similar to; “The paper money you come in contact with is tainted, spreading the virus.” Or, “Stop using paper (fiat) currency and protect yourself, family and others.” Or, “We will curtail all paper money usage and stop the spread of virus.”
Instead of payments being received by individuals and groups as is now the case, future ‘Fed Account’ holders will be credited electronically their funds through the receiver’s identity account. All purchase and debt transactions will be credited and debited from accounts by electronic digitization transfer. In this way, we can move steadily to a ‘cashless society.’ These new transaction steps will likely be presented and promoted under auspicious banners labeled as ‘Equality Distributions, Safety and Security, Universal Basic Income’ or some other tag line/promotional program name. Ultimately, at stake is national and then, global financial control. In a cashless scenario all transactions will become trackable, traceable, and taxable.
This type of Central Bank cashless ‘auto credit/debit system’ is currently being used in Sweden, tested in China, and soon to be operational in Switzerland. Many of the world's Central Banks are somewhere on the Digital Wallet Account path. It’s being considered, evaluated, and proposed by approximately eighty percent (or sixty-six) of the world's fiat currency central banks. A joint venture of exploration instituted and accepted by central banks around the world will allow the global stage to be set for an eventual one-world currency system of centralized electronic credit/debit accounts.
What does a new financial world system like this one mean? When the prophesied worship of the Antichrist is dictatorially ordained and instituted, the global financial system necessary for worldwide commerce adherence in line with such an order will be fully functional. The dictate to possess an identity ‘mark’ for participation in the global ‘buying and selling’ system will be easily implemented. The ‘banking’ system necessary to make global commerce transactional recording possible will already be established and operational. (Rev 13:17, 14:11, 16:2).
Join me next time when we examine economic collapse and rebirth.
The Final Decade
The Lord God does not wish us to be ignorant about His plan for our spiritual redemption and reconciliation. He does however, desire we employ discernment and patience regarding His prophetic design pertaining to the ‘end of the age’ or ‘End Times’. Jesus warns us as to his Second Coming by stating, “that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” [Mt 24:36, Mk 13:32]. However Old Testament prophets, New Testament apostles, even Jesus himself did in fact give us an ‘event’ chronology to study and apply in preparation for His “second coming” arrival as it relates to that specific moment for every believer in Christ.
The information contained herein is based on readings and study of biblical scripture. I share it with you to help make bible prophesy less intimidating and more relevant in your life and future. I am not claiming to know, nor project dates that the following events may or will occur. All calculations are based on a three-hundred and sixty-day Jewish calendar year. The purpose of this series is to aid listeners, readers, and followers in preparation for prophesied pre-millennial kingdom occurrences. And to help explain the path of spiritual salvation through the shed blood of Christ, should you meet your mortal demise prior to His second coming.
I am sharing what I believe will be significant and observable events prophesied to take place, affecting people around the world during the coming final decade of this world’s present age. When will ‘The End’ start? Many prophetic precursors have already begun or have taken place. When will the ‘Last Days’ begin? I believe the initiating ‘spark’ is on the horizon, with the advent of the coming “Ezekiel War.” [Ez 38-39]
I encourage you today, come to personally know God’s unconditional love, mercy and forgiveness through His Holy Spirit enveloped by and contained within a voluntary, surrendered heartfelt and soul dedicated relationship with Jesus, the Christ/Messiah/Savior. When one spiritually accepts and trusts in Jesus’ thoughts, words and deeds through faith and belief, no matter when death may occur, that individual is better prepared for the promise of everlasting life in the presence of the Holy Trinity; Father, Son and Spirit.
There will be many who doubt, mock, or scoff at what I am about to share. So be it. We each choose for ourselves who and what we will believe. These are neither predictions nor efforts to entice, coerce or frighten. These are my determined understandings based on the study of biblical scripture. My commission is neither to convince nor convert. My task is to sow seeds that expose readers to the possibility and process of attaining everlasting life through spiritual rebirth by belief in Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
The choice to believe in Jesus or not is yours and yours alone. Should you decide to heed and respond to these observable events, perhaps when they come to pass, you will remember how to avoid their consequences. Or at least be redeemed by the blood of Christ should you be unable to sidestep the outcomes that await their manifestations.
Join me next time in Part 2 as we recognize the pivotal moment of God’s intervention.

DOXOLOGY: Preparation or Victim?
What “Lie” could be so great as to deceive the entire world and entice its inhabitants as global serfdom followers to pay homage to a single individual?
How profound would the lead up need to be for that Lie to be accomplished?
How convincing would its supposed merits need be to coerce the entire world?
God tells us that wickedness through belief and action paves a way for the coming “Man of Lawlessness” [2 Thessalonians 2:11]. However, his arrival will be preceded by numbing preparations that enable “the Lie” to be believed and go unquestioned.
Such a devoted delusion would have to be ensconced within a situation so life threatening, and conversely, so sincere in its belief of life saving certainty that it's irresistible to all but the most Christ grounded and spiritually confident. Its success would need to appear guaranteed without any down sides. What could produce such a singular entity utilizing both sides of the same coin, with hope in the face of failure and success in the light of disaster?
The lies preceding the Lawless One will make the Lie of the Lawless One seem complete and competent. The first part of this Lie is a unifying delusion that victory in the face of our ‘climate change’ crisis is achievable by its recognition. The second part of the Lie is that economic security will be guaranteed within the advent of an institutional one world financial system.
These two predated parts of "the Lie" are necessary for operational and staged execution so existence of the Lie embodied in one man’s worldwide tyrannical rule can and will be accomplished. According to God’s planned design for mankind’s salvation as described in ‘End Times and Last Days’ prophesies. [2 Thessalonians 2:9] The world must be deceived to desire the Lie, so when it is unveiled by the Man of Perdition, it will seem to be the logical next step. Where received without resistance its rewards will be coveted and its punishments feared enough to move men and women to the pinnacle of a life or death choice.
This Lie has several precursor events which must be advanced and accepted by the public using labels which are not offensive, frightening, or absurd. No matter which are touted in the media or presented by political propaganda messaging machines posited as, “The Great Reset, Building Back Better, New Normal, New World Order” or some other plebian pabulum pronouncement, the outcomes will be the same. Preparing the mass of humanity for global change old to new, which will set into motion for the Antichrist heralded opportunity to step in and take political and economic control.
The constant drip of multiple small lies daily eroding the presence of truth establishes a pattern that invariably builds a barrier in the psyche of the listener. In this way the “Big Lie” makes perfect sense for those who no longer understand, pursue, or desire truth. Many have experienced this phenomenon over the last five years from daily exposure to the oratory and written rhetoric of Donald Trump’s fabrications and outright deceptions. He has single handedly reversed the course of two hundred and fifty years of commonly held collective civil belief that truth matters.
As with others in history who have come before, his presence on the world stage has led astray millions of people to a point where they now blindly follow without query or reason exceedingly absurd, harmful or damaging presuppositions affecting behaviors that lead away from truth. Trump and his ilk will continue to prepare and mentally massage the way for the Antichrist to step into the spotlight of a world frothing at the mouth, and with perked ears open wide to hear “the Lie”.
If you know and trust in truth then you are keen on knowing what to expect, and from whom. With the veil lifted efforts and actions of prophesy are revealed. Those who desire to know the truth of the End Times have opportunities to recognize the signs, events and personalities fulfilling Last Days prophesies.
Bible prophesy tells us exactly what is to take place in the future leading to Christ’s return to gather his believing followers. More importantly these prophesies also explain to the reader and hearer what the consequences of the coming premillennial events will be. By knowing the precursors one can be prepared to survive the struggle while understanding how the fallout will affect humanity.
God plays no favorites. This information is given freely through love and grace to the reader of biblical texts. His unconditional love, compassion, and mercy is provided to every living soul. Recognition of Christ Jesus as the advent, arbitrator, and conduit in this spiritual relationship is the only prerequisite for the understanding that leads to eternal life. Our individual decision of acceptance awaits each of us as the prophesied future unfolds in the coming years.
The changes on our horizon continue to creep into our life systems to be embraced, enabling forward movement item by item through cultural normative alterations and governmental legislations. These life arenas are now in undeniable and irreversible flex as their bases are compromised and consolidated by the financial and political elites around the world.
With unfolding time and impending circumstances each change will occur across every nations’ financial, social, and economic landscapes. Cascading the pronounced events necessary for future history’s fulfillment according to God’s plan and design. If prophecy about End Times events are true and therefore inevitable, these step-by-step incremental changes must take place. Knowing this equation, nothing happening in our world today is surprising or unpredictable for the listener and hearer of God’s prophetic word.
Now is the time to prepare. For your sake and that of your family, today is the day to commit to learning more. These things will come to be. You can believe and understand, or you can risk everything and be led astray in ignorance and pride. The choice, as always, is yours.
Join me next time for Part 2 when we look at shattering economic foundations.
Red Pill, Blue Pill
As spiritual energy created by God through Christ [Jn 1:3], each of us has an inactive spirit waiting to be ignited to cognition. With our spiritual activation initiated through a relationship with Christ we become a child of God. This acknowledged "activation" on our part engages His original Spirit to once again rejoin ours as its originator. From that moment until our last breath, the closer we choose to be with Him through moral and ethical emulation of Jesus’ thoughts, words, and deeds the more fully we see and experience life’s true reality. The esoteric realism that recognizes evil and corruption for what it is, and the spiritual grounding and strength to resist lies and deceit of the world which exist around us.
The evidence is in plain view. We each ultimately choose if our life will include a spiritual relationship or not. Spiritual strengthened support enables us to control our response to evil, hatred and corruption. By engaging spiritual strength when it's needed, we are able to confront and defeat the onslaught of negative energy trying to overtake and claim us. We are able to exercise the power of God’s spirit to repel and rebuke evil, casting it from our lives through and in the name of Christ. This is the power of faith in action.
Will you meet resistance? Yes. Will people mock and belittle you? Yes. Will the people closest to you ridicule and possibly decry you? Perhaps. Who knows? Can you handle it? Emphatically, Yes! Once you see truth, embrace and live with truth, others' opinions, words and actions will fade as the mist that they are until they don't matter. The world hates the truth. It will do all it can to keep the truth hidden. The world does all it can to obfuscate truth. When challenged by truth the world's characters dismiss themselves through excuses and blame, looking for a new place to thrive.
Will the confrontation between your new spirit grounded in truth and the world be easy? Probably not. The one entity who knows the scriptures as well as the Triune Godhead is Satan himself. His desire is to be worshiped as god. Satan knows how the story ends. He knows he will be defeated. His sole intent is to gather as many worshipers as possible into his kingdom. For this reason whenever a new believer in Christ spiritually surrenders to Jesus, Satan will do all he can to dissuade that choice to become a child of God.
Every new believer is tested. Tested to see if they will stay the course they’ve chosen that leads to God. If you trust in the power and presence of God’s spirit serving and counseling yours, He will strengthen you through these trials and tests. Each spiritual victory response will fortify you for the next challenge. Soon you’ll instantly recognize the truth in your current situation and know immediately the Lord’s suggested response.
Observe the world long enough and you'll realize we cannot, nor will we, change it. What we can change is how we respond and treat those in our life. We each have opportunities to become better people, particularly with those we say we love and care about. And then by extension toward others who come into our lives. Or, through spiritual ignorance we can experience a life of stress and struggle. The choice is ours. We each welcome God as an active participant in our life, or we don't. But we will all choose who we will follow and what will be our compass; the Lord or the world. Consider your options and learn all you can. For more about spiritual grounding and strength, we invite you to visit our web site and YouTube channel for our latest postings.
All the best,

We should stop here for a moment to explain that as soon as you turn to your spiritual counselor with a dilemma, you may have mixed emotions. For the first time, or the first time in a long time, you may feel odd by contemplating the truth of your pending situation. The shadow of 'truth' is always present, each and every time we choose or decide. The question is always, how will we respond?
Just as our spirit is now always present, so too is the truth. With an active spirit we now become cognizant of the truth and the role it plays in the emotional struggle we now face. Truth's recognition through the Holy Spirit dwelling within us is always there. In every situation. We have lived our entire life ignoring it, distrusting it, abandoning it. Yet, it is always easier (and much more gratifying [in the short term or during the experience]) for us to dismiss it as “it's not for me”. It is easier to repeat our ‘old pattern’ behavior, and then, if necessary, to rationalize the consequence(s). Even if we know the potential outcome is not in our best interest, for many it’s actually more comforting to repeat the experience despite knowing and acknowledging (a potential negative outcome) rather than to trust an invisible ‘God’.
When your spirit is active and alive with the presence of God through the advent promise of a relationship with Christ, you now possess the temerity to recognize truth and its strength, by making it your reality in each specific and every particular scenario. There is nothing else available that will allow you to see the truth of your decisions in real time prior to enactment, as will the spirit of God within you.
How to make the jump? How does one go from neophyte (new) believer, with a now ‘born again’ activated spirit to an engaged, expectant receiver of ‘good news’? How do we learn to be expectant as to our response in a situation, which requires choice or decision with a consequence attached? As with learning to ride a bicycle, parallel park a car, being part of a team, learning a musical instrument, or any prolific new skill set: practice, practice, practice. Or as applied to our spiritual grounding and growth: hear, listen, trust, act; repeat!
The more we allow ourselves to turn inward for spiritual counseling and guidance in every important relationship or actualized decision, the more comfortably accustomed we become in asking. The more we ask, the more He answers. However, because His Spirit always answers with the truth, it is in our repeated recognition of that truth (or not) which enables us to control the consequence of our action (or not) before it occurs. Simply put, the more we ask and accept what He (God the Father through His living Spirit, in Christ abiding within us) would have us do, the more controlled our response or reaction. With our "counselor’s direction" we can sidestep the holes of adversity in our lives present and future instead of continually trying to dig ourselves out. We are able to start living full and blessed lives.
Once you are on the path, Stay on the path. This is the key!
