RED PILL at MIDNIGHT

Luke 21:34-35 “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.
For as a snare it shall come upon all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.”

On Thursday, January 6, 2011, Steve Quayle  was the featured guest on Coast to Coast AM . During the first two hours, an array of information was presented. Genetic manipultion, weather warfare, Genesis 6 giants, extraterrestrials (fallen entities) global government, and other issues that tie in with bible prophecy. And while it was a very informative broadcast, the most eye-opening moment (at least for me) came when host George Noory began to take phone calls. The first caller made a statement to the effect of “I’ve been listening for two hours and you never follow through on any one issue. YOU’RE ALL OVER THE PLACE.” Steve replied to this observation; explaining that there is so much happening in the realm of scriptural fulfilment that, in an effort to get as much information out as possible, it was necessary to touch on many topics in a somewhat rapid-fire format.

Initialy, the remarks from the opening caller were puzzling.  I know what “all over the map” sounds like and Steve definately was not. (Susequent callers seemed to understand what was being discussed) Then it dawned on me. The information presented that night was, as it were, the latest updates concerning the strange goings on that are taking place in our time. To one who sees the bigger picture, (even vaguely) the information was helpful indeed. But to one who embraces the default worldview presented by the media every day, a sudden exposure to information of this magintude, on an array of topics, could potentially leave their head spinning. For one to be “going with the flow” of life and then suddenly learn about the devices that are in motion, the entire foundation of their reality will be shattered.

The exchange in the wee hours of that morning highlighted a much larger, and far more serrious situation. It would appear that most of our contemporaries are hopelessly glued to the matrix. (The word “appear” is pivotal. The Lord can open the eyes of any) They check the weather forcast each morning, they dutifully perform the requirements of life, they make their mark in the ambience. They anticipate the seasons of a lifetime and plan according. Yet sadly, they are oblivious to telltale indicators that everything familiar is being compromised. Day by incremental day, year after seemingly uneventful year, the test of time seems to substantiate their faith in the temporal. All the while, the events foretold of in scripture are being made manifest. The wickedness of man is reaching a cresendo and a beast system is installed. (They’re just working out the bugs) As some point in the future, the facade that has remained since before the days of our great grandparents will give way; exposing a reality that most are not prepared for.

Luke 21:26 “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming upon the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”

It’s imperative for every saint to fervently seek the Lord for direction as this unfolds. We know that he can sustain us in any climate, however, to be in his providence is a must. When this collapse reaches a state of unanimous undeniability, those contemporaries who didn’t see it coming will “lose it.” For the saints, it will not be a fearful time; so long as we have our eyes on Jesus and understand what’s playing out. In fact, it will be a time in which our light will shine the brightest, resulting in souls being drawn to Jesus. But if we’re caught up with the continuing stories and agendas of this present world, we’ll be caught off guard. And as was touched on so often on the old blog, (Grace Gounty) this is why the pre-tribulation rapture teaching is so dangerous. It causes saints to not prepare spiritually for the times that are upon us. (Why would one prepare for something that they don’t expect to face?)

On a recent broadcast, Nathan Leal  discussed the ongoing situation with the recent bird kills, fish kills, etc, along with other aspects of the earth “groaning and travailing.” (Hosea 4:3.) He also touched on some indicators of the wickedness that is residing in the hearts of men and how this will increase as the end approaches. He touched on the recent tragedy in Tuscon Arizona, (the broadcast was on Jan 11. 2011) where several people were shot, including congresslady Gabrielle Giffords. Six souls went into eternity. One of these who was taken from us was nine year old Christina Taylor. (She was born on Sept. 11, 2001) Prayer should be offered up for the families of all of these victims. I’ve also been keeping Gabrielle Giffords in prayer; thanking God that she is still with us. Events such as this are taking place with increased frequency and it seems as though hell is coming to the surface. Here’s a link to where the broadcast can be found:

http://soundwaves2000.com/survive2thrive/ Look for the Jan 11, 2011 broadcast. Also at this site is a conversation between Steve Quayle and Pastor David Langford. (I hope that’s spelled right) The topic is the rapture teaching which has become so dominant in many venues. (This was on Jan. 7) 

So what do we do? The answer is the same as it has always been. Get close to Jesus, stay in his word, let go of every weight that hinders, and set our affections firmly upon things above. Reach out to our contemporaries who know not the Lord Jesus and are not ready to depart. If our affections are set in heavenly places, the considerations in this post should cause us to, all the more, draw close to the Lord. Not panic or seek an theological avenue for denial, but seek the Lord Jesus. His word is going to come to pass on his terms, not ours. We must line up with truth; asking the Holy Spirit to grant understanding, if we are to stand in the hour of darkness. The single intention behind this post is to encourage everyone who holds the testimony of Jesus to draw close to him. There is a supernatural solace in his presence that will withstand any storm.

Anyone who remembers the movie “The matrix” will understand the somewhat obscure title of this post. Everyone arrives at a point when the illusion is stripped away and only reality remains. sadly multitudes have gone into eternity before this happened and multitudes are in danger of this. (As the old saying goes, “Don’t be caught dead without Jesus.”) And while it’s true on an eternal front, it’s also true in the natural, where everything familiar is slipping away. at some point, the entire superstructure will give way to a brave new (unbfathomably evil) world system. Last night while working, I was reminded to thank God for every day that remains. Every day that passes without calamity is a day wherein names will be added to the book of life. While we may discuss the times ahead, none of us desire the woeful day. (Jeremiah 17:16)

Well I need to be going for now. I’ll leave with a lighter note. Yesterday while doing searching for information, I came across the following link. It’s for a product that’s no longer available, however, it falls in line with what we may well see in the future. It’s the angry mob playset and it features series of villagers holding pitchforks, torches, and what have you. (One lady has a rolling pin) It seems almost out of place on a post of a serious nature, however, it does contain an element of “things to watch out for.” Again, Most of the people in this country have never witnessed a complete collapse of the system and that is exactly what is being orchestrated.

Isaiah 55:6-8 “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”

Blessings always in Jesus name.

  1. Hi Timbob

    Truly the world is “groaning and trevailing” indeed. As the recent flooding throughout Queensland encroached upon my home, I admit, panic rose somewhat. My son then reminded me that God remains in control and upon hearing this timely reminder, (I needed reminding there for a second) peace returned. When the flood waters come…even if they wash you away (we must be prepared for our exit at all times) those who are His remain in the hand of God.

    Not panic or seek an theological avenue for denial, but seek the Lord Jesus. His word is going to come to pass on his terms, not ours.

    You have worded it perfectly. We must remember it is far better to “depart and be with the Lord” anyway. When faced with God’s mighty power and our helplessness/nothingness/smallness in comparison, it MUST bring us to our kness in fresh revelation of our need for Him. I am not yet finished with this but will stay on my face until He helps me up again.

    Bless you and thank you for your prayers for your brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.

  2. Hi fivepeas. I will definately keep you in prayer. I know of quite a few people in Australia (primarily through this venue) and was wondering if any were in the vicinity of the flooding. There is so much going on these days. I don’t know if this will offer comfort, but I was thinking about the storm in Acts chapter 27. The occupants of that ship had given up all hope of ever emerging from that situation, and yet the Lord sustained every soul.

    Not only did everyone on the ship survive, souls were added to the book of life as the inhabitants of Malta heard about Jesus.

    Thanks so much for taking a moment to comment. Please be careful. Blessings always in Jesus name.

  3. Hi!
    I came here after seeing your post at Marzulli’s blog. I’m glad I did!

    Your message above is so important and so simply beautiful. It concerns me greatly,this wide-spread belief in a PreTribulation doctrine. Not only could it dishearten many,it offers a doctrine of “second chances”,…totally unbiblical.

    By the way,I also heard the Steve Quayle broadcast you referred to. He is “all over the place”,but in a good way! How he keeps up with himself is mind-boggling!

    Well,just wanted to say “Hello” and may God bless you in reaching out to others with truth and love.

    In Christ,
    Sandie

  4. P.S.

    I should mention,Marzulli’s blog is “rapture-ready”,and probably over 50% of those who post there appear to share that view. Whenever it is seriously disputed,as I have done,I am called “divisive” and that “no man knows”,…You know the story!

    It’s some cold hard truth,but that’s what people need,not a warm,fuzzy “feel-good” doctrine that promises escapism!

  5. Hi Sandie. Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always great to encounter like minded saints. As we approach the end, we’re really beginning to see the fruits of the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine as multitudes give no thought to what they will soon be facing. I was once in that same camp, however, the Lord brought me out of it in the spring of 2004. Interestingly, I have far more peace today than I did in the pre-trib days.

    Your take on the Coast to Coast broadcast is more accurate than mine. Like you said, “in a good way.” These broadcasts are always riviting as he presents a “real-time snapshot” of the curent situation. They are always followed by a desire to just spend time with the Lord Jesus and cogitate on the things that are upon us.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.

  6. I’ll be stopping by regularly! As you said,it is a joy to encounter like-minded saints! I,too,was once in the Pre-Trib camp,and that is one reason I can be so outspoken about it now,having been deceived and not wishing that any should continue in that error!

    There is real Freedom from knowing the truth and being inspired by it to draw ever nearer to the Lord. Knowing the worst possible case scenario gives us time to build up our strength,shine up the armor,and rely on his grace to sustain us!

    May His peace sustain you through it all!

    Your sister in Christ,
    Sandie

  7. Hi, Why do you not believe in the pre-Trib Rapture? I am not wanting to start a big debate here, I just really would like to know what changed your mind?

    Blessings.

  8. hi w4j111. It was not an easy thing for me as, prior to the spring of 2004, I was a fervent pre-tribulationist. It wasn’t so much from studying it our, but rather, from taking comfort in escaping the events to come and subsequently clinging to the teaching of not being here when this happens. I allowed my desire to dictate my theology.

    In the spring of 2004, I heard some preaching to the contrary and, unlike other times, I listened and looked up the corrresponding passages. There was a flow to this teaching. The moment of crossing over to the post trib side came during prayer. I said words to the effect of “Lord, your word is going to come to pass in the way that you have ordained it. I need to get in line with what is true. If this is true, please prepare me for it.”

    I’ve had a perfect peace about this ever since; a peace on a level that had never been there before. Peas alone, however, does not pass the test of scriptural accuracy. Rather than rattle off a series of passages, here’s a post on my old site that goes into detail:

    http://timbob.wordpress.com/2008/03/14/rapturepalooza/

    The primary thing is for us to line up with Gods word through prayerful study and not cleaving to the teachings of men. It would be a fearful thing to suddenlt have to choose between food and salvation without having prepared spiritually for such a thing. I don’t claim to have everything worked out and I know that the Lord can take any one of us home at any given moment. To be watching always is imperative.

    Thank you so much for stopping by and inquiring of this. I wanted to reply earlier, however, yesterday was hectic beyond description.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.

  9. Thanks for taking the time to explain! Although I’m still a firm pre-Tribber, yes, I’ll admit this is another way of approaching it.

    Blessings to you and I am really enjoying your blog!

  10. Hi w4j111. Being close to Jesus and seeking him first is the primary aspect. And if we truly love him, we’ll be anticipating his return; regardless of our thoughts about timing. When I visited your site, I saw solid evidence of an author who truly loves the Lord and longs for the day when this corruption puts on incorruption. The church that I attend is solidly pre-trib, but their love for the Jesus is without question.

    Thanks for taking time to comment here. I’m planning on future visits to your site when time permits. Truly our conversatioin is in heaven.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.

  11. Thanks for your kind words, timbob! It’s plain to see your love for the Lord, too, on this wonderful blog!!!

    Regardless of WHEN the Lord comes (and only HE really knows, lol), we will be dancing in Heaven together one day, brother!

    Blessings.
