Watching and Warning

Those who are truly awake and watching in the current day are in a natural position to warn others. In my first post on this site, I mentioned that a self-described ‘watchman’ such as myself has a duty to warn. For the purposes of this writing, I divide the topic of warning into three areas:

1) Jesus Christ is returning soon

2) Man has abandoned the God of the bible

3) God’s ‘days of vengeance’ on the earth will come soon

I address each of these areas, respectively, in separate sections below.

Warning- we are in the last days- Jesus is returning soon

We are currently living in the last days before Jesus’ return. Even the apostles, in their time, observed that the last days were already underway. The apostle John wrote:

  • Little children, it is the last time; and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now there are many antichrists.” (1 John 2:18)

The apostles even asked Jesus if that time they were with him in person was the time that would usher in his Millennial Kingdom. Jesus’ answer was, ‘not yet’; but later, through John’s vision for the book of Revelation, Jesus himself reassures several times that he is “coming quickly” and that this book should remain ‘unsealed’; thus, it should be open for believers to read and see for themselves about those events coming soon to take place in the last days.

Warning- man has abandoned the God of the bible

The same factors (i.e. wayward and wicked human behaviors and human-created institutions) that brought God’s judgment on his people in the past are those that exist again. The repeating cycles and patterns in God’s Word are unmistakable. As we learn from Solomon, “There is nothing new under the sun.”

Man has chosen to worship other, false gods

God’s own people, the house of Israel, are always the first place to look. In modern times, the house of Israel has walked away from their own God. The modern day Pharisees (worldwide) attempt to ‘manufacture’ their own Messiah and even the timing of his arrival. They plan for this false messiah’s temple in Jerusalem. They are willing to divide their God-given land in a trade deal that gives away land for so-called peace. But then again, from God’s Word we know that the Jews would be blinded in part until their eyes be opened by hard truths to come upon them in these last days. Meanwhile, sadly, many remain completely blinded due to their oaths to secret society organizations, following other gods, Talmud-Rabbi teachings, Kabbalah mysticism, etc. Think “Synagogue of Satan” here.

The anti-Christ Chaldean “mob” holds individuals and institutions in bondage

False institutions, false teachings and false gods (or having no god) are no more than vehicles for individuals to feel comfortable with unrepentant, chronic sinful behavior. These help to cover up, keep secret, and falsely justify a multitude of sins. The modern-day anti-Christ Chaldean/Babylonian “mob” captures people in their sinful behaviors, makes them slaves, and then systematically promulgates and reinforces misbehavior via institutionalized and highly organized, criminal matrix-style methods (refer to my past and future comments about this group). Individuals are held in bondage for their own sins and are collectively enslaved to help cover up sins of entire institutions and even nations.

As a result, this massive army collaborates and coordinates to heavily influence and control major institutions (governments, elected bodies, corporations, media, religions, etc.) across borders, worldwide. In doing so, they cover up the very ugly truth and iniquity that underlies their power. God warns through the prophet Isaiah:

  • Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? And who knoweth us?” (Is 29:15)

In a ‘free’ society like the U.S., truth should naturally reign, be transparent for all and win popular support. With all of the overwhelming, unmistakable evidence for Jesus Christ as the one true God (and no evidence to the contrary), only the existence of this Chaldean mob can explain how we end up, even in what is supposed to be a free, ‘well-educated’ republic like the U.S., with a relatively small proportion of Christ believers, and among these, even a much smaller proportion who declare themselves to be truly bible- and salvation-believing (ref. recent survey research). Instead, many aberrations, variations, and alternatives to the true gospel of Jesus Christ have been invented. In Romans (Ch. 1), Paul discusses wicked idolaters who, “…exchanged the truth of God for a lie.”

In the time period of grace since Jesus first set up his church on this earth, the Gentiles have done no better than the Jews in recognizing and serving the one true God of Israel. Multitudes of both Gentiles and Jews, even in the U.S., have traded out and chosen to serve the adversary instead- i.e. the modern-day anti-Christ Chaldeans. And if this is the case in the U.S., imagine how powerful this group is worldwide. (Did you ever wonder how an evil one-world government and Anti-Christ leader will arise suddenly, so easily, and thus, how so many will be deceived practically overnight?)

In the midst of increasing lawlessness, Christ-believers should maintain righteousness

Once we understand the Chaldean army as representing the true deceptive Anti-Christ spirit, then we understand the primary source for all of those behaviors that we are warned will bring God’s wrath. Due to this anti-Christ army’s continuous coordination, perpetuation and cover-up of wicked activities, we are left with:

  • Lawlessness and corruption (unjust financial gain, false witness, murder, extortion, bribery, racketeering, institutional lies/cover-ups, etc.)

  • Moral sin and wickedness (adultery, other sexual sin, lewdness, drug use, sorcery, witchcraft, etc.).

  • Rebellious attitudes (pride, haughtiness, scoffing, mocking, love of money, censoring of the truth, etc.)

Taken altogether, this sin and lawlessness is a result of entire societies/nations that have turned to worship false gods and idols rather than the one true God of Israel.

So we are to be warned that, for this season in which we expect Jesus to return, we are to be living in righteousness and obeying his commands. We are warned that we should be found wearing clean, white garments as opposed to being discovered naked and exposed. Might the ‘nakedness’ described in scripture (i.e. Rev. 3:18, Rev. 16:15, 2 Cor. 5:3) represent those who are left behind in their corrupt mortal being that is accompanied by wicked, unrighteous, idolatrous behavior, and spiritual shame? For we know that, “There is nothing secret that shall not be made manifest…” (Luke 8:17).

Jesus Christ will ultimately identify his true children, his servants and his sheep who are wearing clean garments, and he will award them with an escape from the wrath that is soon to come upon the earth.

Warning- God’s days of vengeance on the earth will come soon

The final Tribulation period, sometimes referred to as the ‘days of vengeance’ or the ‘day of the Lord,’ is right at the door. This will be a terrible time on this earth like there has never been. It will be a time of unprecedented distress. There will still be just a few bright spots, due to God’s designated spiritual army and witnesses on earth at this time. As a result, some people will still be able to come to a belated realization of God’s truth and salvation in Jesus Christ.

Otherwise, in the book of Matthew (Ch. 24) Jesus foretold that in the end times: false gods would appear in his name; there would be wars and rumors of wars; nation would rise against nation; kingdom would rise against kingdom; there would be famines; and there would be earthquakes in diverse places. He called these events the “beginning of sorrows,” but not yet the end.

Events and various signs and perils we are seeing now do not begin to compare with the actual terrors of the seven-year Tribulation period that will soon follow. So, the warning here is about Tribulation period events to come. The best way to illustrate the coming time of God’s worldwide ‘days of vengeance’ is to refer to God’s word itself. The following are just a few of many descriptive passages about this soon coming time period:

  • For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be. And except those days should be shortened, there should be no flesh saved: but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened.” (Matt. 24:21-22)

  • The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall totter like a hut; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.” (Is. 24:20)

  • The Lord is angry with all nations and furious with all their armies. He will set them apart for destruction; He will give them over to slaughter. The slain will be left unburied, and the stench of their corpses will rise; the mountains will flow with their blood.” (Is. 34:2-3)

In the course of our ‘watching’ in these end times, the warnings above are related to the most important events of our times, or any time up until now for that matter. I trust that these warnings are well-heeded and duly-noted by those who are truly awake and watching along with me. We know that Jesus Christ provides an escape and deliverance for those whom he calls his own.

Grace and Peace,

  1. Was your Uncle a Dispensational premillennialist too? My guess is yes.
    I must tell you, you’ve been extremely blessed with your ability to write in this manner. I really enjoy these articles but I’m a non-Dispensational premillennialist. The so-called debate on the timing of our rapture will soon be over.

    You’ve really done well in the warnings you’ve written in this article. You are truly a watchman as I am too. However, you’ve got a crack in your armor in that we will not be granted an early “escape”.
    It would be nice but it’s not in the Bible.
    I’m blessed in a way that’s hard to describe other than I’ve received an ability to discern and see certain things, aka prophet. I hate that label though as this world is filled with mostly false prophets.
    And me, I’m perhaps the most unworthy servant so it’s somewhat perplexing as to, why me? I ask the Lord repeatedly, why me?
    I can see, the 1st seal has already been opened. I can see that the 2nd seal has also been opened.

    We will all be here until the final trumpet blows and the Lord Jesus Christ returns.

    1. Hi Mat,
      Thanks for reading and I appreciate your feedback. Given that you’re local, we should get coffee and chat sometime, if you’d like. I’d be more than happy to. In the meantime, hang with me on the posts and feel free to offer feedback any time.
      I’m not sure I can completely do your questions justice in this reply column. I wouldn’t want to speak for my uncle, but I’d highly recommend his book that I mention. Take care, L

      1. Thanks for the reply Brother! I’m available for coffee anytime (almost). I also frequent the light rail station at Park Meadows to share the gospel with others. (where we met the first time.)
