Prepared and Willing to Suffer

I have brought this up before, perhaps more than once, but I believe that it bears repeating, possibly more often than I might think. The chaff is being sorted out, the Lord is at the threshing floor, and I must agree with not only what my heart and my eyes tell me, or perhaps better stated, what I believe that I am being led by the Spirit of God to see, but also with men of God who are far more knowledgeable than I could ever hope to be.

The Lord has almost always moved in the same way, those nations that honor Him, He blesses, those that do not, do not receive His blessings. Those nations that once honored Him, when stop praising His name, will soon find warnings from Him, for He is longsuffering, (2 Peter 3:9) but there must come a time that that nation must be punished, in the Scriptures it is called His wrath. In my humble opinion, we are quickly approaching a time that the Word of God calls the rapture, (1 Thess. 4:17) and then for those left behind, what is called the tribulation period. (Matt. 24:21)

I must confess, I never thought I would ever pen these words, and I do so in great fear, for it rides too close for me towards the land of false prophets, but as I have said many times before, I do not preplan what is going to come out of the tip of this pen that I generally hold in my hand twice a day, many times I am just as surprised by was is written as those few of you that read these letters.

Before the rapture, I believe it will become very difficult for some people, especially those that serve the Lord. Obedience through fear, intimidation and laws of the land, many of them brand new, with more appearing each day, will be the way that this separating of the chaff from the wheat will occur, and has already begun. The powers that be at this moment, the principalities and powers that we fight against, (Eph. 6:12) are determined to use the old, well tested patterns of war, division, divide and conquer, fear and the siege mentality.

In a sense the divisions will be the easiest to enforce, those who have been vaccinated will be, and again, already are, against those who for whatever reason, will refuse the vaccine. This enables a divide and conquer stratagem, brother against brother. (Mark 13:12) The fear of reprisals, personal reprisals, has been tested for the last year now and they have been found to be a valid tool in their arsenal. The siege will be just as easy, inflation, lack of goods and services, the unavailability of certain products that were plenteous just a few short months ago.

Do not allow complete freedom, but limit those freedoms, especially to those who have seen fit not to obey the vaccination requirements, limit the supply and production of certain services and goods, and allow those who have been vaccinated to be first in the “First come, first serve” scenario. But first and foremost, those of faith in Christ who have determined to live out their faith on a daily basis must be used as the examples.

Most generally, when those in the front ranks die, the rest will either flee, or become obedient.

The Lord’s wrath will come upon these nations, it always has, and almost always He has used another nation as His rod of vengeance. There is no place to hide but in the Rock of our salvation, (Psalm 62:6) the only structure left standing will be the Tower of the Lord. (Prov. 18:10) My friends, whether or not we want to, we should be preparing ourselves to partake in the fellowship of His suffering. (Phil. 3:10)

    Our Bishop speaks about the vaccine every sunday during the online church service in his bulletin and requests everyone to follow the guidelines of the government and take the dose.
    Many church has gone through the vaccination of their members after the church service in their own church compound.
    Just a handful are resistant, others have already got it.

    Take a look at a website called ‘Brand New Tube,’ specifically the videos produced by a man named Dr. Vernon Coleman. My wife follows this subject of the vaccination efforts by the nations with great interest. We have not, nor will we ever wear a mask, we will not be vaccinated. It is a precursor to obedience, and, in our particular case, we do not see it as having trust in the Lord for the direction and path of our lives. It makes as much sense to us as someone who wears a face covering, a mask, that has written upon it “I trust Jesus completely.”

    Do you get fined for not wearing a mask in your country?
    Its 2000/- Rs in India….almost one week’s wages. ?
    I will see if i can find out Dr. Vernon Coleman’s video on Brand New Tube!

    We do not go to the places that require masks. It has been, in a small way, a burden of sorts, and has limited our ability to live life as we have in the past, but it is not considered even worth contemplating, if it brings glory to God. To stand for His glory in the coming days is going to cost a lot of people more than what they may be willing to pay, it is why I speak of Him winnowing out the chaff from the wheat so often. “Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.” (Luke 3:17)
