MESSAGE TO AMERICA pg 2
Rev. 13:1-8 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (2) And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (3) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (4) And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (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 kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
See the page, The Fourth Seal, for more information about this beast.
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb. The only hope for America is to EVANGELIZE NOW! God has placed upon my soul a burden and a message for America. It is simply stated, and it is prophetically true. “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” (Isa 45:22-23 )
Everything is not all dark! Rev 7:2-3 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, (3) Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
The Sixth Seal reveals that there will be a time of wrath when Jesus will judge the earth. The events of the Sixth Seal are written in Rev. 6:12 to Rev. 8:1. After revealing the time of wrath in chapter six, John received the message written above in Rev. 7:2-3. Then He sees one hundred forty four thousand of the tribes of Israel sealed in verses 7:4-8. Next He sees a great Multitude that no man can number: Rev. 7:9 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. The sequence seem fairly certain that the events describing the wrath of God upon the earth will not occur until the saved are no longer on earth.
This great multitude is, of course the church clothed in white robes which a symbol for being covered by their faith in Jesus. And so we see, that none of the events that describe damage, destruction, pestilence on the earth will occur until every person whose name is written in the Lambs Book of Life has been sealed. So, how are we sealed? Eph. 1:12-13 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. (13) In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. We are sealed by the Holy Spirit when we believe. Therefore, none of the things that involve damage, destruction, or pestilence on the the earth will occur until everyone whose name is in the Book of Life has believed on the name of the Lord, for, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21
Trumpets in the scripture are sounded to give warnings of battle, or calls to worship. God told Ezekiel: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. (18) When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.” (Eze 3:17-18)
Jesus has set his church to be watchmen to warn the lost of the judgments coming upon the earth and the lost. Mar 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
There would be no reason to tell us to watch if there was nothing to be seen. Much of the church has been taught the doctrine of Immanence for years, telling them that every sign that needed to be fulfilled has already happened and that Jesus can return at any moment. This is plainly a false doctrine. If Jesus can return at any moment why would he tell us that the chuch will not be raptured until immediately after the Tribulation? Matt. 24:9
The Power to Love
1 Pet. 4:8-9 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall
cover the multitude of sins. (9) Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
Rom. 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath
fulfilled the law.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (23) I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Isa. 45:22-23
1 Cor. 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1 Cor. 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
