you know that summer is near..."
"Blow a trumpet in Zion;
sound an alarm on my holy mountain!"
"Now when you these things begin to happen,
look up and lift up your heads,
because your redemption draws near!"
Jesus continues in Luke 21: 34-35 (I have amplified, using the original Greek)
"But pay attention! Watch yourselves so your thoughts and feelings
are not weighed down with the intoxication of the worries
and cares of this life, which will come on you unexpectedly,
like a trick or a trap.
For it will arrive upon all who live on the earth.
Stay awake, watch, praying that you may be counted worthy
and will have the strength to escape all these things
that are going to take place,
keeping your covenant with the Son of Man."
He knew what I would need to hear! I have found myself 'weighed down with the intoxication of worries!' It it certainly feels as though this 'day' has come upon us suddenly, like a trick, or a trap!
The information I am going to share is NOT intended to incite fear! Jesus has left great and precious promises (in Revelation 2 & 3) for those "...who overcome." My goal is to inform and encourage you (and myself) to stand strong in the Lord. He has promised that His grace is sufficient...
The key to winning any battle is anticipating the strategy of the enemy. Glory to God, Jesus has told us exactly what to expect!
Revelation 13 foretells of a powerful beast- man in the last days who will cause
"all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a MARK on their right hand or foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the MARK or the name of the beast or the number of his name."
In Revelation chapter 14, the third angel proclaims with a loud voice:
"If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his MARK on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God..."
We are warned of a coming world leader/government that will require digital identification in order to buy and sell.
For the first time in history, we have the necessary ability to travel and communicate, as well as the technology to implement this diabolical plan. I believe we are seeing it unfold before our very eyes!
I think it possible that the corona-virus was created and released for the purpose of promoting enough fear to institute global control/transformation. My suspicions are based on the following information:
"...Business as usual will be insufficient
to bring about transformative impact.
Changing the flow of funds is necessary
to re-align incentives."
What does this interruption of "business as usual" look like??? Travel is restricted. Businesses are closed. Countless people have lost their jobs. People are forbidden to meet for worship. Families and friends are separated. Food and even toilet paper are scarce. Fear is the prevailing emotion...
The assumption/plan is that their draconian measures will eventually wear us down, and we will be desperate enough to accept a "digital ID" in order to restore some semblance of normalcy to our lives!
Brothers and sisters, we must decide today whom we will serve. Like the GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES in Hebrews chapter eleven, we must overcome by faith. We must prepare ourselves to suffer if necessary. Nothing short of our eternal reward is at stake!
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:1-2)
He who has an ear, let him hear.
