Fear, Confusion, and Panic…

by Brother Dave…with emphasis added

Presidents Sheeple

Isaiah 41:10 ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Prov 3:25-26 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

Hebrews 13:6… So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Isaiah 8:12-14 For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Look at the world around you. See how they live in dread today. Think about what’s happening today, all the world is dealing with is a global pandemic, that’s it, just a pandemic, and people are losing their minds. When I say “just a global pandemic” I need to put that in perspective for you…think in terms of the tribulation….

People are living in fear and dread today without the Anti-Christ marauding around, without famine at their doorstep (yet), without being attacked by the beasts of the field, without the trumpet judgments or vial judgments, without demonic beings walking side by side with men (i.e., Nephilim), none of that…yet, and people are shivering. Why?

I suppose today is as good a day as any other to begin separating those with real faith from those whose life calling has been “playing church.”

“Going to church” is never asked for or desired anywhere in the bible. Being the church is mandatory. You cannot fake real faith, its either there or its not. In the face of potential death, it gets really real.

Understand that not a hair of your head can be touched by this man-made angel of death virus, without our God’s permission. Our God is a respecter of faithful people. He stood in awe of the centurion’s faith. The Lord has been on this topic of faith and belief now for weeks (with me) and I can clearly see why now. If we do not stand in our faith, we will not stand at all. The time for people to build their faith for the coming storms is not when they hit, its before they hit.

Will men wait until they are shivering while sweating on their beds eaten up with this pig flu before they go to their knees and seek the face of God? Many won’t even seek him then.

Noah's ArkToday is a pre-flood, pre-brimstone day. Today is a day when the mercy and grace of our Lord are still extended to men. Today is a day to return to the fundamentals of the faith. Your hired hand spiritual servants (clergy) will not have the faith to save you, you must have the faith to save you. Faith is the currency of our Kingdom, a Kingdom not of this world.

Six days from today marks the anniversary of Noah entering the ark; 16 days from today is Ascension Day, and 26 days from today is Pentecost. People who tell you that Jesus can’t do this, and Jesus can’t do that because XYZ hasn’t happened yet, are in for a big surprise. The Son of God is not bound by their interpretations of what He can or cannot do, and when He can do what He has planned.

Over and over again in the bible we see this idea that Jesus is coming at a time when men will not expect it. He says He is coming like a thief!

Now watch this very carefully, what Jesus says here and when He says it. Rev 3:3 is just before Rev 4:1 where we see what? A door opens in heaven. What does He say in Rev 3:3:

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Pay attention, VERY CAREFULLY, to what He said there. This is straightforward language, He says if you will not watch, He will come on you like a thief and you won’t know the hour He comes upon us.

It has become very popular today for men NOT TO WATCH for the coming of the Lord TODAY. Who are these people who refuse to watch, who do not believe Jesus will show up today, tomorrow, or even next year for that matter? Pre-wrath, Post-trib teachers come immediately to mind. (Added by Randall… i.e., David MacPhearson, Stan Johnson, Robert VanKampen, Irvin Baxter; And especially those who are of the Preterist Eschatology viewpoint such as: Hank Hanegraaff (the Bible Answer Man) and R.C. Sproul.)

Lovers of money like Tim Mchyde who for all we know isn’t even a believer, men like that assure you that Jesus cannot come back today because of reasons A,B,C,D,E,F,G…. Won’t they be surprised on the day Jesus does come back and they are not watching while they peddle their merchandise on other men teaching them not to watch today either. What will happen to such men? I don’t even want to guess.

We specifically are warned to be watching…for what? For our Lord’s return. Those found doing what they are told to do will be rewarded, those who preach and teach disobedience to this specific command to be watching TODAY for the Lord’s return…well, I would not want to be them.

As we press deeper into the month of May, I would advise you to be watching and ready like the wise virgins of Matt 25. I would advise you to “pray that you may be counted worthy to escape all that’s about to happen and stand before the Son of man”. Why would I advise such things? Because they are clearly stated in the word of God, and the twisting of men goes straight to the trash bin.

Mark 13:35Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, whetherat even, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning

Matthew 24:42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Luke 21:36Watch therefore, praying at every season, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things which are about to come to pass, and to stand before the

1 Peter 4:7… But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Now, look at each and every place our Lord tells us to watch and you tell me, do you see any time qualifiers mentioned ANYWHERE? A time qualifier would be somewhere He tells us “watch when you see this happen” or after this happens, then watch, or at the mid-point of the trib, then watch, or after the trib is over, then watch…No, it just says WATCH which means what? Do it NOW!

A man who puts off the commands of the Lord because he thinks he has outsmarted the word of God is a fool. I am amazed at how many have fallen for the satanic doctrines of this day which tell you…

“don’t bother doing what the word of God tells you to, put it off for later…”

The day of the escape will come upon many people like a thief. Why? The cares of this life have overwhelmed them, or they refuse to watch.

Luke 21:34-36: 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 shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 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.

What’s the downside of watching today and every day after today? None. How can you be caught “not watching” if you are watching every day? You can’t. So you tell me where wisdom is, watching every day, or watching sometime later for our Lord’s return?

Swine FluI was not planning on writing about this today, but perhaps the Spirit planned on me writing this today. The point of everything written today is, this flu thing, and later many issues will cause people to become anxious with the issues of life here, and they will not be watching. We know because we have been warned thousands of years in advance that those who are found watching and worthy when He returns will be able to escape all.

Read Luke 21:1-35 to find out what the “all” is we are promised to escape. We are to comfort and encourage each other with the promise of the rapture and the escape. The only comfort and encouragement the pre-wrath and post-trib teachers give you is you have a 90% chance of dying a horrible death in the tribulation. Even if there was no escape from all, it wouldn’t matter one iota to us who live for Christ, watching for his return day in and day out. We live by faith, every day. We obey his word, we are watching. If a person tries to convince you that for some reason you don’t need to watch today, consider closing your eyes and ears to them permanently.

Believe that our Lord will do what He said He would do. You do NOT need to buy any mans book (especially if they charge you for it…) to figure out what the Creator has to say to you. Pray, believe, watch, and read the book God himself wrote to you and all men.

In a time of universal deception, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.  grace and peace

    Hello brother Dave. I enjoyed reading your article regarding the spiritual state of the world and church. I wanted to share an article regarding the anti christ that I wrote.

    Paul explains that the Holy Ghost is preventing the Antichrist from being revealed during our current church age. In our present day the spirit of the Antichrist is operating. This spirit is developing an environment and culture in the world which will be conducive for the revealing of the Antichrist. We are witnessing this development but our hearts are not to be anxious. This is the unfolding of prophecy which is written in the Bible.

    It is prophetic that there will be crisis in the world and that people will look for someone to offer a solution. Effects of global warming, shortages of food and natural resources, and the conflicts between nations set the stage for the revealing of the Antichrist. Our participation in world events needs to be examined as to which spirit is being glorified. In our actions are we promoting the works of the spirit of the Antichrist or do we promote the kingdom of God? Later chapters of this book will discuss the Battle of Armageddon. This will be the battle in which Jesus destroys the Antichrist and his nations of the earth which war against Him.

    Climatic of the rise to power of the Antichrist will be at the Battle of Armageddon. Development of world events today set the stage for the revealing of the Antichrist. Developments which are occurring today are orchestrating events which will have their climatic end at the Battle of Armageddon. A leading up of events to a climatic end is also regarded to as a campaign of events which are directed to a specific goal. Thus we have the term the campaign of the Battle of Armageddon.

    Daily we are challenged to yield to the spirit of the Antichrist which will culminate in the Antichrist. By the spirit of the Antichrist today is the campaign of Armageddon in momentum. Do our actions testify that we are encouraging the spirit of the Antichrist? Is it more convenient for us to accept and follow the spirit of the Antichrist? Criticism of the world can manipulate believers from resisting the campaign of Armageddon. Forsaking this world includes resisting the spirit of the Antichrist and the campaign of Armageddon.

    There may be ways established in society that we cannot avoid. God understands this but He does expect us to resist when it is possible. “…Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.” (Rom 12:9) Resisting the Antichrist and Armageddon is to resist evil. Things which have the character of evil are things which yield the fruits of pain and sorrow. Abhorring evil is to hate, detest and refusing to allow it in any part of our being. We fully resist putting our trust in darkness for it will one day attempt to overthrow God. Participation in this life is by cleaving to that which is good. Convenience to self rather than commitment to holiness will result in the believer being a part of evil.

    Participating in evil in life is strengthening and encouraging the spirit of the Antichrist even if it is in the smallest measure. We need to be mindful of the events of our day as they pertain to the campaign of the Battle of Armageddon. To be separated from this world is to resist advertising the works and goals of the spirit of the Antichrist. This world is a system which is preparing to fight the Lord in an attempt to overthrow His rule. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing: and I will receive you.” (2Cor 6:17) Separating from the world is our act of personal holiness and our discouraging the army of darkness. This becomes more apparent in our daily walk the more we understand the book of Revelation.

    Question: What in our present day can you identify is the result of the operation of the spirit of the Antichrist?

  • Body farm? I thought that was something like in the movie “Motel Hell” where Rory Calhoun would plant living people in his garden so he could later ‘harvest’ them for the meat! chicopanther
