To the beat of Strauss, I drove along the interstate to where my office was. We have been warning
The truth is, prophets and watchman are all over the world I frequent, the Internet. Many of them
Before I knew it, I was lost in the calling, the confrontation, and what God is bringing to pass. Behind
The wicked will be revealed and with him a strong delusion that will cause people to believe the lie
2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
In America, though, the dividing asunder of a nation will occur. As we have history books full of the civil war. Civil means of or occurring within the state or between or among citizens of the state. Make no mistake this will happen again in this nation, but among divided groups that take advantage of the chaos that will envelop America. This will be the first part of the America that I know of, to be brought low.
In this, the bringing forth of judgment to this nation will occur and be final. This also will provide the stepping stone to completion of the kingdom to encircle the earth. That kingdom will be the beast kingdom.
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred’s, and tongues, and nations.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred’s, and tongues, and nations.
Remember this truth, the Lord awaits to see all his children. As the world and nations clamor around a deceiver, those who know the truth will be bringing the real truth. As the enemy tries to destroy them, he is only sending them to their ‘heavenly Father’, who loves them. They will in no wise lose out!
Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
Finally, this section in Daniel describes the end time fight. Those in the light of their God, who through Jesus Christ [Yeshua HaMassiach] have found the truth, and those who follow the beast. In this section we find the word ‘covenant’ and the phrase ‘the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.’ These actually are what Revelation speaks to about this time as well.
Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
In Revelation we find the dragon making war with the remnant of the seed of the woman. This is all those who have come to know the Lord through the Messiah, which came through the line of David. It includes both Gentile and Jew, both Ephraim and Judah. For the staff will be joined. All will be united in the Lord. In these verses below we find that the remnant of her seed are those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Further it says the saints are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
In the above verses we find one word the American church hates. This word is commandments or commandment. Jesus spoke as well of ‘keeping the commandments.’ Howbeit, this was not keeping the law to be a fulfillment for individual salvation. It was an outgrowth of a persons ‘being born of the spirit.’ If one came to know God and love the Lord, then they would willingly do as he pleases. For this, we can find all over the new testament the words of the Apostles and Jesus himself saying this:
The greatest commandment, “LOVE”.
Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
If you love Jesus, Keep his commandments!
John 14:15 ¶If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 ¶I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
The Apostle John on the ‘commandments’!
1 John 2:3 ¶And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
1 John 3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
1 John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Its not that you know the LORD, its that the LORD knows YOU!
Jesus also said this at the end of his discourse on the Sermon on the mount. Chapters five through 7 speak of this in Matthew. The other gospels have it as well. In this summary, Jesus says, “by their fruits shall ye know them.”. Many say “I know the Lord”, but the real truth is not that ‘you’ may ‘know the lord’. The real truth here is that Jesus knows you because you are a doer of the Word, not a hearer only. For Jesus warns us that there will be many who have done what the church and religious world would deem works worthy of heaven, but Jesus Says ‘he never knew them.’ Here take the warning, Jesus specifically says “he that doeth the will of my Father which is heaven”, these are ones He knows and who will enter into heaven.
Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 ¶Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Being a Fellowservant!
In a final summary in Revelation chapter twenty two, we are told that a fellowservant of God is one who keeps the ‘sayings of this book’ and ‘worships God’.
22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
In conclusion, let me say, there will be much coming on the earth in these last days, among them false prophets, false Gods, chaos, wars, famine, pestilence, and much more. With this everyone will face it together so to speak. Yes America will face this, but so will the entire world. Yes many wicked would be pleased to see America fall. Yes many enemies will rejoice at our misfortune. But they too will face the same God who is judging America and the church.
The Apostle Peter said “judgment must begin at the house of God”!
1 Peter 4:17 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?
The Apostle Paul said “knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men”!
2 Corinthians 5:11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
Jesus said to the Lukewarm church “because thou art lukewarm, I will spue thee out of my mouth, repent therefore”!
Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Seek the LORD so that ye may be hid in the day of the LORDS wrath!
Zephaniah 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
Finally, again, Fast and seek the LORD, praying that you will be counted worthy to escape all these things and to stand before him!
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
