Saturday, September 12, 2015, 4:00 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “For Our Nation.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Isaiah 19 (select vv. NASB). The oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud and is about to come to Egypt; The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence, And the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them. “So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians; And they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor, City against city and kingdom against kingdom. “Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be demoralized within them; And I will confound their strategy, So that they will resort to idols and ghosts of the dead And to mediums and spiritists. “Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel master, And a mighty king will rule over them,” declares the Lord God of hosts. (vv. 1-4) The princes of Zoan are mere fools; The advice of Pharaoh’s wisest advisers has become stupid. How can you men say to Pharaoh, “I am a son of the wise, a son of ancient kings”? Well then, where are your wise men? Please let them tell you, And let them understand what the Lord of hosts Has purposed against Egypt. The princes of Zoan have acted foolishly, The princes of Memphis are deluded; Those who are the cornerstone of her tribes Have led Egypt astray. The Lord has mixed within her a spirit of distortion; They have led Egypt astray in all that it does, As a drunken man staggers in his vomit. There will be no work for Egypt Which its head or tail, its palm branch or bulrush, may do. (vv. 11-15) I live in the United States of America. I have lived here all my life. I am 65 years old. I was born in Akron, Ohio, which is where I attended school. I have a high school degree and four years of college (no degree). I also grew up attending church meetings with my parents from infanthood, so attending church meetings and participating with the church in ministry was a big part of my life always. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at around the age of seven years old, so I have been a follower of Christ a long time. I have always held pretty conservative beliefs, too. In other words, although I have always believed all the gifts of the Spirit are still alive and well in the church, most of my life I did not fit within what some would term the “charismatic” church. I was pretty traditional. Once I was married, my life was taken up with family and church. I didn’t pay much attention at all to what was going on in the world around me, unless there was some major news event. I believed what I saw on the news. I didn’t question if they were telling me the truth. I sang patriotic songs and pledged allegiance to the flag and believed what my government leaders told me. That was how I was raised, so that is what I did. Then, in 2004, the Lord Jesus started talking to me via dreams and visions. This was new to me, but I knew my Lord’s voice, and I knew it was him talking to me. He began showing me things, i.e. as I was reading scripture, he began showing me how what I was reading fit with what was going on in the world. He began to open my eyes to what was going on within the church, though some of that I had already begun to see, and also what was going on with the US government, military and with their global activities. I was not previously aware of most of this, nor was it something I would have sought out on my own. Yet, I trusted my Lord and I believed what he was showing me, to the best of my understanding. The Lord began to show me then that the US government is not what I thought it was or what it presents itself as. He began opening my eyes to all sorts of stuff I had no idea about. I learned that the US government was not founded on Christianity, as I had always been taught, but that it was founded on syncretism, which is “the combination of different forms of belief or practice” (M-W). Washington D.C.’s buildings, statues, symbols and layout are modeled after Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods and goddesses, as well as Satanic and occult symbols. I learned that the plan from the beginning of the formation of our government was for these United States to bring in the New World Order, a tyrannical global government which would rule the earth. The Lord then began showing me all the evil the US government was doing all over the world, much in the name of humanitarian aid. I learned, too, about the elitists (the wealthy and powerful) of the world, and that they were really the ones behind the US government, pulling the strings. I learned that Congress has no real power, and that there is no such thing as right and left, but all that is just to keep the people entertained and distracted. Our votes don’t matter because the whole political party stuff is just a performance, for both left and right answer to the same people. I learned, too, that most of what we hear, read or see in the news or coming from the mouths of our government leaders can’t be trusted, because most of it is lies. Some news events are completely staged, and others are partially staged (acted out). Most of these uprisings, riots, terrorist attacks, bombings, etc. going on in these other nations are the work of the US government and their allies in the UN. First they create the chaos, and then they go in as “saviors” with a solution, just like they are doing with Iran right now. Every time the Lord has shown me anything about Iran, it has been that what we blame Iran of doing, we are actually doing. We are the ones with the nuclear ambitions. This deal with Iran is not about curbing their nuclear ambitions. We were trying to get them to cooperate with the “international community,” alias New World Order “beast”, which is what we have been doing with all these other nations we have gone into to solve their problems. This deal is really about the rule of the beast and the killing of Christians and the conquering of peoples and nations, including it is about the downfall of the USA. What is really guiding and directing our government is a big gun. The cornerstone of our government is cruel and evil, and does not care about protecting the people of these United States, for it plans to take us out just like it has taken out all these other nations so that it can bring in the rule of this New World Order ‘beast,’ i.e. the cruel master which has been the one guiding our government leaders. It will be a lot like Hitler’s rule, only globally. I believe this deal with Iran will expose the true intentions of our government, and that it will be disastrous for us as a nation, though certainly I don’t know the timing of it all. I just know the goal of this New World Order is to overthrow all sovereign nations and to bring us all under the rule of a one-world tyrannical government and world religion, and that somehow this deal with Iran is going to help accomplish that goal. Our own leaders have turned on their own people, betraying them, and handing them over to the enemy. I believe God is judging the USA, and that he did so on 9/11/01, but that he is going to do so again, only much more severely this time, I believe. We will be handed over to this New World Order, i.e. to this cruel master, and it will mean the death of the sovereignty of our nation. It will mean hard times for us as a nation, too, and it will also mean the persecution and killing of Christians who stand on the Word of God and who do not deny their Lord Jesus. But, this judgment on our nation will bring people to faith in Jesus Christ, and the adulterous and idolatrous church will be revived. This is what I believe the Lord Jesus has shown me, and has been showing me now for about nine years or so. For Our Nation / An Original Work / September 11, 2012 Bombs are bursting.
