Calamity of the Innocents

September 30, 2008

Psalm 71:3 “Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given complete commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.”

Anyone can visit the structure on highway 77 in Georgias Elbert County. A giant monument, financed by an obscure individual calling himself “RC Christian,” that lays out the globalist agenda. Many of the ideas will seem noble to the undiscerning, but others make no attempt to hide their blatantly evil design. One such example is the globalists plan to reduce the earths population to five hundred million. It seems too far fetched to be taken seriously, but there it is, carved in stone. (literally) The sheer cost of constructing the Georgia guidestones proves that these people are well financed and committed to their cause. More on this can be found HERE.

This thought has been on my mind as of late and was enhanced by a family gathering today. Most people; even christians who love the Lord Jesus in sincerety, are going about their lives as though everything will flow in a continuously predictable fashion. They work hard, take care of their families, paticipate in their communities, and abide by the law of the land. They desire to leave for their children, a better world than the one that they were born into and they strive to make this a reality. Yet there is a very real devil who is waging continuous war against Gods creation. As time marches on toward its conclusion, the powers of darkness are preparing to unleash unimaginable evil while the masses are consunmed by the business at hand. Those who are not born again; the enemy allows them to believe that they are “good people” in need of nothing. At the same time, he strives to sidetrack the true saints with one distraction after another. The devil is literally seeking whom he might devour at this very moment.

It should be noted that the term “innocents” doesn’t suggest that there are people who are without sin. All have sinned and all are in need of repentance. No man comes to the Father but through Jesus Christ. It’s a term used to describe those who were minding their own business when calamity struck. Here in the U.S. the current economic mess was manifesting while the majority of Americans were paying taxes, staying current on their bills, taking their kids to baseball practice, and what have you. They didn’t directly create the mess, but will be directly affected by it. The emptiers have emptied the land in every way imaginable. (Nahum 2;2) Jobs have disappeared, God has been removed from the schools, genetically altered food has been introduced into the diet, the principles of witchcraft are routinely promoted by the entertainment industry, nearly everyone is “in debt up to their eyeballs,” (to quote a commercial from a few years ago) and the church has largely adopted a fleshy gospel that lacks any power. 

If one ventures into the geo-political arena the perilosity of the hour is compounded, but for the sake of time, I’ll not go into it here. (Watch the bear)

Most people don’t see the storm that’s hovering right over head and is beginning to unleash its fury. Anyone who tries to give warning is disregarded as “just another doom and gloomer.”  Tragically, the point will arrive when denial is no longer an option and the ensuing chaos will be unfathomable.  Most of us in the west have never faced a situation of complete meltdown on a national or global scale. Yet Jesus warns us of times of such tribulation that “except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) There are distinct groups of people who will be made manifest when the money fails and the chariots of Egypt unravel.

( 1 ) The saints who were atuned and watching. These will be astonished by the intensity of things, but will remain close to Jesus. (They will be strong and do exploits)

( 2 ) Complacent saints. These will be blindsided by the coming collapse as events in the physical realm have them overly-occupied. Some will awaken and turn to Jesus in repentance, but others will also be so overwhelmed that self-preservation will kick in and discernment abandoned.

( 3 ) The tares. The lack of a true relationship with Jesus, despite a reputation of good works, will become manifest and their actions will fall in line with the contents of their heart. This group will include many who were highly esteemed in the christian community.

Both 2 and 3 reveal the dangers of following men and not searching the scriptures for ourselves. (Acts 17:11) This is way too serious to simply trust the words of a contemporary. We must hold fast the profession of our faith in Jesus in accordance with scripture; regardless of what anyone else says or does.

( 4 ) Those who make no claim to be christians. They will be in utter chaos as everything that offered security is compromised. (This is already taking place to some degree) Yet a few of these will come to a place where they are receptive to the gospel. I almost wonder that there will be more conversions in this group than any other.

Hebrews 3:12-13 “Take heed brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”

One cannot adequately convey how serious this is. We are warned in scripture to keep our hearts with all diligence. Abiding in Jesus Christ, the True Vine, and not following from afar or trusting in our own ability. A person who is not abiding 100% in Jesus will follow a lie. A person who loves their life in this world will have a hard time refusing a mark that will promise a return to the days of plenty. A person who is sitting on the fence will fall off in the time of shaking. We must examine ourselves continuously and be atuned to the Holy Spirit who will always let us know when we’re beginning to stray or are about to say something that shouldn’t be said.

With such events bearing down upon us, one may wonder what we are to do. Some propose getting out of the country while others suggest stockpiling as much physical resources as possible. The advise is rampant, but in truth, each of us must get before the Lord and find out from him. Some of us may be led of the Spirit to move to another part of the country and others may be led to stay in places that make no sense to remain in. We must strive to be in the Lords perfect will, regardless of the ambience. If our affections are on things above where time is no longer, we’ll not be rattled by the trials of this temporal world. They are “only for a season.” We should strive to arrive at a place where we can honestly proclaim “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

May we all move into the Lords perfect will and work diligently to reach the lost while time remains.

“Romans 8:18 “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.

  1. Hi Brother …good post. I was reminded, as I read your post, of a Jewish writer who talked about “gradualism.” It was the ten years before the holochost. Gradually, every day, they moved closer to calmity. Yet, most people in the world believe that tomorrow will be like today because today was just like yesterday. And it is no use appealing to history, they just refuse to get their minds around the possibility os something of enormity happening. That is whty 9/11 shook the foundations of this country. And so for the Germans, it was a gradual process until the veil was removed and “normality,” and pretense were done away with. The finincial storm that many have predicted, including David Wilkerson, a man I respect, will rock the world and everything that can be shaken, will. You talk about the “emptiers,” which is a perfect word to describe what has been happening. I know this was hard for many of my Christian friends to accept, and goes against their philosophy, but when George Bush took office the Lord gave me a word “The foxes are in charge of the chicken coup.” Just when we thought the country was in deep, deep debt, then they ask for almost a trillion dollars. And we see today that it has had little or no effect on the worldwide panic. The most brilliant minds in the world cannot figure this out. Warren Buffet said last week that he does not understand the derivitive markets. Perhpas God has decided to back us into a corner and the shaking has begun. The seperation of the sheep and the goats. And the people go on as normal 🙂 No urgency in the Church. Business as usual. Rationalisation is the order of the day. If we, the Church, really thought that the day was far spent and that the night was fast approaching, we would have an urgency about us. Perhaps we , like the world, dont really believe in a supernatural end of times that is possibly unfolding. All the wacko’s from Wacko that has went before us has perhaps lulled us into a deep sleep. May the Lord bless us with eyes that can see and ears that can hear that small still voice………..brother Frank


  2. Hello Frank. Great to hear from you. Your observations are so accurate. We see the prophetic implications of the events transpiring, and yet so many are oblivious to the times. Oblivious that is, until the store shelves are nearly bare and a loaf of bread costs $20. (Or euros, ameros, credits, or whatever we’re using at the time.) I’m convinced that this will be pivotal in the ushering in of a single global economy. As I write this comment, the news is reporting that Asian stocks are tumbling again. (Oct 7, 2008 1:30am EDT)

    I think that I might be nuts. I have such peace in my heart despite the chaos in the ambience. All that I desire is to be close to the Lord Jesus. My family is a great concern, but I believe that a failing of the chariots of Egypt will cause them to awaken and come to Jesus. Thanks so much for stopping in. I keep you in prayer as these are strange times.

    Have a blessed day in Jesus.
