The final day of July, 2012 took a somewhat unexpected turn. While driving to work, I was diverted into another direction by a situation which demanded immediate attention. Although the situation was resolved in a timely manner, I ended up spending the final hours of July away from the big blue box of employment. Later in the evening, I tuned into the Hagmann and Hagmann Report which is broadcast nightly over blogtalk radio. (A link to the 7-31-2012 broadcast is provided near the bottom of this post) This particular broadcast featured some of the latest information concerning the end of life as we have known it, the methodical steps now being implemented which will ultimately lead to the rise of the beast system, and the effectiveness by which the powers that be have kept most of our contemporaries in a state of complacency. The broadcast touched on events which are so unthinkable that the hearts of many will fail for fear when they are unexpectedly forced to navigate in a paradigm for which they are not spiritually prepared.
Luke 21:19 “In your patience possess ye your souls.”
The three-hour broadcast concluded at midnight; just as July gave way to August. One can approach such information is four different ways. The first (and easiest) way is to ignore it and turn back to the television or distraction of choice. The second is to rationalize it away. (People have been saying things like this for years). The third is to believe it (because the evidence presented adds up) but not have the necessary spiritual anchoring to respond to it. Such a person will bounce from broadcast to broadcast, article to article and cleave to those who have been preparing in a frantic search for direction. (Daniel 11:34 and Matthew 25:8 just came to mind) A fourth method of response, however, will carry us through while others are being herded into compromise and destruction. We come before the Lord Jesus, cast our cares upon him, seek direction, walk in obediance to that direction, and trust him completely. This fourth method describes not only how the saints shall endure unexpected situations, it describes how we should conduct our lives every minute of every day. It’s a place of childlike faith wherein our eyes are on the eternal and not the temporal.
Psalm 91:9-10 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation,
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
Luke 21:16 “Ane ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
Psalm 91 should be commited to memory. It was necessary to also reference Luke 21:16; lest an unbalanced picture of what it means to endure should be presented. The Lord can sustain us in the most insurmountable of circumstances. It’s possible that we could be walking down the road while a column of spetnav troops pass by, and they would never see us because the Lord supernaturally hid us in plain site. But this doesn’t mean we are exempt from all tribulation, nor does it mean that our physical lives will be spared in every situation. Overcoming this present world goes beyond pyhsical preservation. Revelation 12:11 provides us with the formula for overcoming: “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.” It’s quite possible that some of us, or perhaps many of us, will be called to give our lives for the testimony of Jesus. As he told the saints in Smyrna “be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” I pray that these considerations will not discourage anyone, but rather foster a diligent seeking of the Lord Jesus who is with us always.
“Luke 21:17-18 “And ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake.
But there shall not an hair of your head perish.”
Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
It was after 1:00 AM when I went outside for prayer. I walked out to the road and looked west; pondering how long it will be until those who are assigned to implement the roundup pass through. There was no fear accompanying this reflective cogitation and within moments I was in the presence of the Lord. The opening moments of August became a time of worship; both in english and in languages which commune on a deeper level. In that place, there were no globalists or Russian spetznav (special forces) units. There were no murderers of the innocent or profiteers from campaigns of iniquity. There was no meaningless chatter, no alarms, and no calls from the complacent ones to come out of the holy place and join them in the potatoing of the couch. For a span of time the intrusions of the world were neutralized. A gentle breeze blew across the moonlit landscape while my thoughts gravitated toward places not observable. A melody which has no ending became my anthem, while looking into the firmament and considering just how incredible our everlasting Creator is.
Senritsu wa fuhen desu – Melody everlasting. While singing unto the Lord, this thought came to mind. “This song never ends. I million years from now, in a realm which has no timepieces, this song will still be on my lips. It doesn’t have a final verse; it’s as eternal as the age to come” For a moment, time vanished and all I could see was the everlasting. Sekai ga musubimasen – world without ending. Our lives in this physical world; the dramas, the agendas, the career paths, the pastimes, and what have you, are as nothing in comparison to that which is everlasting and our Creator who has no beginning. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” Aikou ga mattaki desu – perfect love. A love that’s pure and without an accompanying agenda. A God whose habitation exceeds the boundaries of time and space; and yet loved us so much that he took on a body of flesh and dwelt among us. He became acquainted with grief. While we were altogether lost and contrary to his nature, Jesus shed his blood to redeem us.
The moment offered a glimpse; not only of the timeless state that awaits us, it gave insight into how we should live on a daily basis. We cannot spend all of our time on the mountaintop. We still inhabit a vessel of clay and we are surrounded by contemporaries who know not the Lord Jesus. There is much to be done and time is quickly running out. Nonetheless, we can live each moment with the eternal perspective in the forefront. It’s not easy. It requires diligent dying to self while being prepared to be misunderstood and even betrayed by our closest brethren and kin. But when we can abide there on a consistant basis, everything else will fall into place and we will not be quickly rattled by threatenings in the physical realm which accompany the fulfilment of bible prophecy. In writing this, it’s important to mention that I have a long way to go in learning this.
II Corinthians 4:17-18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
I need to be going shortly. Here’s the link to the above mentioned broadcast:
The Hagmann and Hagmann Report with guests Steve Quayle and Greg Evenson
Two phrases of significance are mentioned in the first hour of this broadcast. The first is “yard farming.” The second is “seamless application of forced intervention.” Please approach this prayerfully. The second hour is incredible and powerful as prayer is offered up for many. Lest anyone should arrive at some erroneous conclusions, I should also mention that the non-english phrases in this post are Japanese and probably contain some grammerical flaws. (I may have completely butchered it) Ever since hearing an interview with Henry Gruver on July 5, 2012. Japan has been much on my heart. Henry spent spent several weeks there; including a lot of time in the Fukushima region. He reported that in the time since the tsunami, many doors have opened and the names of numerous eternal souls have been added to the book of life. One such name is that of a former priest who was in his 80s. This man is now preaching Jesus throughout the land. I don’t remember what religion he once practiced. It matters not; God has cast it into the sea of forgetfulness.
A thought came to me recently. There will, at some point, be a final entry made in the book of life. The name of the last person to believe on Jesus will be recorded, following which, the ledger will be finished…….just a thought. Below is a link to the July 5th Trunews broadcast featuring Henry Gruver. The actual interview begins about 5 or 6 minutes into the brodcast; following a quick rundown of the news stories that were breaking on that day.
Rick Wiles and Henry Gruver
Revelation 7:9-10 “After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.”
Blessings always in Jesus name.
