These Things Shall Precede the Day of the LORD
I feel that the Lord has directed me to write about what is currently happening as we are
transitioning from the Church Age to the Kingdom Age, the 7th millennium. As mostly anyone
will admit, we are in the last days in the Earth as we know it. So we need to be keenly aware of
what events are unfolding at this time.
Right now the LORD is separating the sheep from the sheep. I Peter 4:17-19 exhorts us: 17
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us,
what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls
to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
Verse 19 is clearly defining who those are that will endure, scarcely getting saved. They are the
ones who suffer according to the will of God and who obey the gospel of God. What is the
gospel of God? Jesus preached the gospel so it is not only about what He did the gospel was
already in place. It is the Commandments and the Feasts or appointed times. What? Yes…it
brings sanctification and healing and Jesus Christ was the embodiment of it! (the Word made
So if you are not honoring the Sabbath like Jesus did, (which is the 7th day of the week) then you
have believed the lie of the Holy Roman Empire that changed it.
They changed it through Constantine the Roman Emperor joined with the “church” which
became the Catholic church, who said he accepted Christ and said it was their “Mark of
Authority” to change the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday because their authority is Higher than
the Word of YHVH!!! (THIS sounds like the voice of Lucifer to me and this very well may be
the Mark of the Beast.)
By the way, Constantine murdered family members AFTER his supposed conversion. His money
was still minted in the name of Mithra the sun god too after it so he used the fake conversion to
gain control and to unify his kingdom using the Catholic church. All manner of apostate things were allowed
to infiltrate in the cause for unity.
The other laws that he instituted is that he obliterated all things Hebrew from the worship of
God, making it illegal to worship on Saturday, to honor the Feasts and the appointed times of
God like Yom Kippur and even the Kiddush Cup which became communion on Sundays. These
things cause us to be in violation of the 4th Commandment which is to honor the Sabbaths of YaH.
These violations of the Commandments will keep us open to judgment because of the verses
above. You can go to church on Sunday but you should spend the day with God on Saturday.
Rest with Him, study the Word, pray, worship and enjoy Him, keep it holy.
In Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 we read what the Spirit of the Lord saith unto the Churches and
we would do well to measure ourselves up to it at this time. One of the first accolades given is
found in Revelation 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst
not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not,
and hast found them liars:
Are you aware that at this point in time many saints accept a “leader” simply because he/she is
endorsed by a recognized leader in the Church? No other point of reference is needed in most
cases. Wow. Some of these leaders are more than likely described in the same chapter of
Revelation down in verse 14: But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them
that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children
of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
The doctrine of Balaam is: to love and covet the wages of unrighteousness and the gifts of
unrighteous men; to teach those who are outside the covenants of God the secret of how to cause
His people to stumble through fornication and in eating food offered to idols. (Easter eggs and
Halloween candy, for example.)
The rest of the warnings written are to be studied by every believer worth his salt…
II Thessalonians 2 gives us the understanding of the season we are in at this time. The whole
chapter is important since it is in view of the Coming of the Lord Y’shua HaMaschiach (Jesus Christ).
These things shall precede the Day of the Lord: The Great Apostasy (worship of the Beast) and
the man of sin, the son of perdition be revealed. I believe that these two are inter-related; two
sides of a scroll if you will. Selah.
II Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by
letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling
away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that
he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
The worship of the Beast can be found in the following verses: Rev. 13:1-19; Rev. 14:9-11;
Rev. 15: 2-4; Rev. 16:2-12; Rev. 19:20. Also, Daniel 9:27; Daniel 11:35-45; Daniel 12:7;
What is the great falling away? What is drawing them away? Why are so many deceived?
Verse 7 tells us: II Thes. 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now
letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
In I Timothy 4:1 we learn of the mystery of iniquity or lawlessness:
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be
received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
I Tim. 6:9-10 warns us: 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into
many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred
from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Drowning in destruction and perdition! The son of perdition will be revealed and I believe it is
happening frequently in many signs and wonders conferences all over the place!
Bear with me now, because I know this may sound far reaching to some, but remember, we are
in the last days and there will be a great falling away. The Lord is giving the great raspberry to
all those who are lukewarm and spewing them out of His mouth. (I will make my case and
elaborate later on what qualities the lukewarm people have.)
Matthew 24:24 says, For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show
great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
The worship of the beast and the Anti-Christ will arise out of the Charismatic movement.
How can I say that? Simply because they are the only ones anticipating miracles and signs and
wonders in their midst. I am too! But we need to make sure that things are being done by the
Holy Spirit moving through individuals and not by “angels”.
The elect may be deceived for a time but I believe if they are the elect they will have their eyes
opened to the truth. The following verses are unnerving.
Revelation 18:23-24 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice
of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were
the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the
This is clearly a picture of ones who once had a lampstand. These are ones who were part of the
bride at one time. These are ones who have erred from the faith…
Back to II Thessalonians. The son of perdition is also the Abomination of Desolation spoken of
in Matthew 24:15. This is how it works: A deceiver, false apostle, etc., gets the endorsement of
one of the Charismatic Leaders and the show is ON! They yield their members to another spirit
and themselves become angels of light…ugh! (Demonic) 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (KJV)
II Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and
signs and lying wonders,
4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received
not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in
How does he do all these things? By an angel. Yes. Most of these guys are telling at least this
one truth, they are doing these things with angels.
AND we are called to judge the angels… Why? Angels are perfect and there is no room for
error, so what angels are we to judge? Of course the fallen angels.
I Corinthians 6:3-4 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that
pertain to this life?
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least
esteemed in the church.
I have gone to a couple of these meetings and I heard first-hand things that do not add up to the
Gospel of Jesus Christ, son of the Living God.
I heard, “When the Kingdom of God comes down upon a situation and the power of God comes
down, healings just happen!”
My response, Jesus said in Luke 17:20-21 The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
My response to “the power of God coming down” is that I thank God daily that the Power of
God, The Holy Spirit, is within me also. It was a package deal. I got all three Persons of the
Trinity and they brought the Kingdom of God with them to dwell inside of me.
However, we read in 2 Kings 16:30-31 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the
LORD above all that were before him.
31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the
son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and
went and served Baal, and worshipped him.
I see many of the “Prophets” in the groups named above and others also, who are walking in the
sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat as though it were a light thing…
The worship of Baal is rampant in the “leadership of the Church”. Baal is the god of greed and
lust for money and stature among men. SELFISH AMBITION and REBELLION and
ELITISM, glorying in the flesh. Sins of the flesh will spread to sexual sin…
In this letter I would like to state that I witnessed firsthand, how the angel operates through these
men and women, and they admittedly stated that they were able to do their miracles because of
the angels present. Wow. And I was shocked that nobody openly rebuked them. Nobody said,
isn’t it supposed to be done by the Holy Spirit moving through a person because He dwells
Do these people ever use the word Repent? I never heard them at the meetings I attended. Never
once. When I saw this “move of God” for what it truly was, I spent 10 days in mourning. I cried
out for the friends of mine that sat excitedly night after night in those meetings and lapped up the
doctrines of demons without batting a lash. (God has pulled several out of the “fresh fire”
through prayer and intercession.)
The Lord showed me to read Zechariah 5. The whole chapter explains it perfectly:
5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. (Scroll with
two sides rolled toward the center.)
2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is
twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for
every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that
sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
4 I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and
into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his
house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
After the prophet describes that the size of it is large, he gets the explanation in verse 3:
Those who steal from God are cursed. Whether it be glory, honor or praise that they are stealing,
or money for the advancement of the Kingdom of Heaven makes no difference.
They are cursed.
Those who swear falsely by His name are also cursed. They are performing “miracles, signs and
wonders” with an unclean spirit and standing in the Holy Place while they are doing it in the
name of Jesus.
The fact that the roll is flying is a picture of the “supernatural”.
Verse 5 continues: 5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up
now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This
is their resemblance through all the earth.
7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst
of the ephah.
8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the
weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind
was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah
between the earth and the heaven.
10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established,
and set there upon her own base.
The prophet is then shown and told how the wickedness is going forth. What is being cursed,
what it is, and what it looks like through all the earth.
The ephah measures output or commerce. (Like a measure of grain, for example). It is a
container and the angel casts the epitome of wickedness, the woman, into the midst of the ephah
and casts a very heavy lid upon it.
Wickedness multiplied and two women emerged, the heaviness of the lid unable to contain them.
Now, they were not ordinary women, they had wings, like the wings of a stork. (The stork is an
unclean bird and these are unclean angels who are bearing the ephah filled with wickedness,
between the earth and the heaven. This is the 2nd heaven, by the way, which is constantly spoken
of by the false apostles and prophets. A few of these wolves brag that there are two female
angels, one named Emma and another one.)
The fallen angels are taking the wickedness to Shinar to build a house and establish it. They will
set it there upon her own base. This is the woman beast seen and spoken of by John the
These are clear pictures of what is happening. The wickedness of the principles of Babylon is
the base for the house to be established upon. Rebellion against God.
Some of the deceivers out there are twice dead, those whose names have been blotted out of the
Book of Life, and who have had their lampstand removed from them, and who have been
plucked up as taught in Jude.
Do not be deceived dear saints. God is not mocked. He just gave the big raspberry to the
lukewarm. As I stated earlier, I will elaborate on their qualities:
-They are interested in what God can do for them and not what they can do for God. They can
even believe they want to do things for God but the ultimate reason for doing things for Him is to
gain recognition and position with men. They have come to understand that with these, money
and power will follow. Motives impure and are glorying in their flesh.
-Selfish ambition is the unifying spirit of this movement. Also, obviously, the unclean spirits.
Lukewarm people refuse to bend their knee to the Lord as He showed them areas in their lives
that were displeasing to Him.
-Lazy, slothful, not studying to show themselves approved, they rely on the study of others for
their sustenance. How foolish. Instead of eating their own meat or drinking their own milk they
take already been chewed food and drink. Wow.
-Believing in the prosperity messages of the wing nuts, (teachers on Christian Television), they
trust that sending in money to these ministries will gain them the character necessary for God to
entrust them with wealth. (It takes a very special person to be entrusted with wealth. It so easily
Lust for riches causes one to drown in perdition! The many warnings:
Deuteronomy 6:10-17; Psalms 52:1-7; Psalms 73:1-22; Proverbs 23:4-5; proverbs 28:20-22;
Jeremiah 9:23; Ezekiel 28:5; Matthew 6:19; Luke 6:24; Luke 12:15-20; Luke 16:13-31; I
Timothy 6:4-19; James 1:9-11; James 5:1-3.
I now understand the scripture of Matthew 6:22-24 The light of the body is the eye: if
therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is
in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he
will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Now I fully get it. It is the description of idol worship, serving two masters is impossible. It sets
a person up for the great delusion.
We must also look to the scenario at the time of the Lord’s first coming. The leadership of
God’s people was very similar to today’s, knowing He is to return soon but they are at ease in
Zion. There were the folks who operated in the spirit of Elijah out in the wilderness knowing He
was coming and calling for repentance and declaring the need to prepare the way of the Lord.
The ones who trusted in the leadership blindly, were following blind guides, Jesus said.
We see the plight of Israel to this day, for they missed the day of their visitation, their hearts
were not prepared for the Lord. Do not be misled. Do not miss the hour of your habitation.
John 6, also is very important for understanding what is currently unfolding. We see that Jesus’
ministry had grown very large after the multiplication of loaves and fishes-twice. In verse 15 He
goes off alone when they attempt to take Him by force to be made their King. (Why are so many
wanting to be Kings and rule today? It is not the nature of Christ to rule over people and gain
popularity. He serves.)
In verse 27 He warns them not to labor for provision, but for that meat which only the Son of
man can give unto them which endureth unto everlasting life. Later on in verse 53-58 He
explains that His flesh and His blood is that meat and they must eat and drink of Him to have
eternal life and be raised up on the last day. He promises to raise them up on the last day at least
3 different times by the end of this chapter.
The ministry of the Lord suffered a great falling away even of some disciples. They said it was a
hard saying and they walked away. But He has the words of eternal life. Eternal life comes with
praise of God through the sufferings, sharing in the sufferings of Christ. Putting ourselves on the
altar every day and then not jumping off at the first sign of the match to light it up.
Please take this warning to heart and study the 7 churches in Revelations 2 and 3. Measure
yourself against the letters the Spirit of the Holy Lord sent. Be content in all things and give
Embrace your sufferings! Please stop dwelling on the wounds of your past and count it all joy
that your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life! Everything that happened to you in your
life brought you to this point! Rejoice!
