Revelations 2 (My mission and I)

Hello again.

I will continue with my story of my experiences in recent weeks, which date back to around the start of lockdown (23rd April) and continues day by day. So much to share, it will take weeks to write it all up, but that’s what I have to do for the Lord, so I will happily do it.

I don’t have dates on my early notes, but the first note I made concerns the following scripture which was shown to me (I use a random audio shuffle of the entire bible on Play Music) and I was being taught about God, His plan and my part in it. The scriptures were instantly clear to me, not because of my own wisdom, but because God was teaching me directly, via what I will refer to as ‘thought injections’.  (please listen to this song, as God has sent me so many messages via this band, and a playlist I put together of my favourite songs of theirs, He literally wrote the songs I believe, although the artists didn’t realise this).

The first verses I have noted down are the Lord’s comments about who will receive the revelations of the Lord regarding his Father from Matthew 11:

“I fully consent to You, Father, Lord of the heaven and the earth, that You did hide these things from the wise and learned, and did reveal them to little children. 26Yes, Father, for this was well-pleasing before You.
27All things have been delivered to Me by My Father. And no one knows the Son, except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and to whom the Son might choose to reveal Him.’

I am a little child as regards my faith, it’s only been less then four years since I found faith in God and less then three years since I was baptised, and I still haven’t quite finished the Bible (just the prophets to go though). So, I’m young in my faith, but I have steered clear of bad teaching and always sought His truth only. As always, I give all credit to God for my desire for truth, and willingness to submit to Him and fear Him, he is worthy of both.

Another piece of scripture that was put before me touches on the same theme, later in Matthew 19:

  ‘And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wifeh or children or fields for the sake of My name will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life. 30But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.’’

I have had 3 years in total separated from my parents due to my faith, and I was tested to the extent I lost a six-figure sum last year as a show of faith, and to learn that money is not security or safety, the only security is our God, nothing and no one else. So these verses really mean a lot to me, and I look forward to eternity with Yah and His Son and the other saints, as I know what that pure bliss feels like already.

I have noticed that some men and women who are coming to know the Lord only very recently are seeking righteousness right from the start, even before baptism, they are keen to obey His laws, and it’s obvious that God is putting this desire into these believers, who are going to be amongst the last to find Him, whilst at the same time many older believers are stuck with their deceptions and a comfortable life, never having submitted to God’s ways at all, instead living a pale facsimile of them. Unsalty, not shining their lights, of no use to Yah, so lukewarm that He will vomit them out of His Kingdom.

My next note concerns the first few verse of Revelation 14:

 And I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing upon Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred forty-four thousand having His name and the name of His Father having been written on their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice out of heaven like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of loud thunder. And the voice that I heard was like that of harpists harping with their harps.

3And they are singing as a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders. And no one was able to learn the song, except the one hundred forty-four thousand having been redeemed from the earth. 4These are they who have not been defiled with women; for they are pure, these following the Lamb wherever He shall go. These have been redeemed out from men as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. 5And in their mouth no lie was not found; they are blameless.

I had been discussing this chapter with my brother David a little while ago, but on the day I made the note it was revealed to me that the 144,000 who are to be redeemed from the earth are not literally virgins. ‘Not been defiled with women; for they are pure’ means that they have not been deceived into false doctrine by any church or pastor, but they have stuck to scripture and sought truth, and so ‘in their mouth no lie was not found; they are blameless’ because they reach perfect righteousness before the return of the Lord (be yet therefore perfect, even as our Father in heaven is perfect). I am one of these 144,000, so is my brother David, and I am aware of a few other brothers who are likely to be in this group.

The main proponent of deceptions and lies, the entity that has defiled billions of believers, is the Roman Catholic church, and the vast majority of its ‘protesting’ offshoots, who stick to her false doctrines by and large. We are urged to come out of the churches as the end approaches:

Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“Come out of her, My people,d

so that you will not share in her sins

or contract any of her plagues.

5For her sins are piled up to heaven,

and God has remembered her iniquities.

 

So, some pieces of the jigsaw were falling into place, suddenly poetic scripture and prophesy was being made crystal clear to me, thanks to Yah’s giving me many ‘thought injections’.

I noticed back on 4th April that earlier in Matthew 11 our Lord Yoshua (Jesus) revealed some information about John the Baptist, which piqued my interest:

7And as these were going away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds concerning John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8But what did you go out to see? A man having been dressed in delicate clothing? Behold, those wearing delicate clothing are in kings’ houses. 9But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one more excellent than a prophet. 10For this is he about whom it has been written:
‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face,
who will prepare Your way before You.

 

11Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the least in the kingdom of the heavens is greater than he! 12And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of the heavens is taken by violencec and the violent seize it. 13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah, the one being about to come.
15The one having ears,d let him hear!’

I was surprised when I read that John the Baptist was literally elevated by Christ as the greatest man ever to have been born of women. You’d have thought that Abraham, or Noah, or David, or Moses, would all be ranked at a higher level? But John was both a prophet AND he was appointed to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord, and to baptise those who repented of their sins (and we know there is nothing our Father loves more than a sinner repenting and coming back to His ways, as noted in Ezekiel 18: 26-32).

The scriptures above made me think about Elijah and John and my strong conviction that I had felt for over a year that the return of the Lord was not far off in the future, because every nation is disobedient and has turned away from faith in Yehovah God, and that was why I was shown them, I was being prepared for some revelations concerning me and my role, and so much more besides.

At the start of the lockdown period, I sent some messages to a web-hosting company in Singapore, as well as to a local web-designer, in preparation for launching my Law Project website, which I have referred to many times previously on this blog, something that I committed to do for God back in early 2019. Both the designer and the hosting company were dead ends, but it was my intent that I wanted to note, finally I was stirred to actually doing something, the time for procrastination was now over, and I attribute that to Yah of course, as I will procrastinate forever given the chance.

On March 27th I saw a tweet that contained a sound I’d never heard before in my life, the sound of shofars playing. Shofars are Israelite trumpets made from ram’s horns, and I encourage you to click on the link to hear a few minutes of the sound we will hear when Jesus returns, it’s an incredible sound, very uplifting and it stirred my emotions enough to produce tears.

On 28th March I was shown a video of John McArthur, a well know man I believe in evangelical circles, running seminaries and attracting huge audiences when he speaks. The video was of him being asked a question about the impact of taking the mark of the beast we are warned about in Revelation 14:

“If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives its mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10he too will drink the wine of God’s anger, poured undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented in fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

 The whole of the book of Revelation is the revealed prophesy of the Lord Jesus himself to his servant John (using an angel), I wonder if everyone realises that?
This is the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must soona come to pass. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, 2who testifies to everything he saw. This is the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear and obey what is written in it, because the time is near.
Given that it’s a prophesy from the Lord himself, it would seem to be incoherent for any faithful believer to to argue with verses 10-11 above. If the mark of the beast is taken ‘he will be tormented in fire,and the smoke from the torment will rise forever’, and ‘he will drink the wine of God’s anger, poured undiluted into the cup of wrath’. There is no doubt about these prophesies, they WILL come to pass, they’re from the Lord.
But John McArthur answered a question on the subject by saying that one could take the mark of the beast, and then repent at a later date, and still enter the Kingdom of God. I was bemused by this, I couldn’t understand how anyone could teach doctrine that is totally contrary to a prophecy from the Lord himself. I decided to ask a local pastor I know somewhat the same question, knowing he would give the same answer, as he studied at a McArthur seminary. I was correct, he quoted some scripture on repentance, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10, and wrote ‘if we followed the logic, and applied it to 1 Corinthians, no one would be able to be saved’. He then admitted he sins, and even though I rephrased my question about those taking the mark of the beast, he couldn’t see where he was wrong, so I wrote
 ”No other scripture affects what Jesus prophesied, you’d be literally calling Jesus a false prophet if you try to argue that those who take the mark of the beast don’t burn. And you know, that’s a bad spot to be in as a believer, so please ponder. Bye for now, thanks for your time.
I mentioned that the pastor was of the same opinion as McArthur to the brother who had shared the McArthur video on twitter, and I told him I couldn’t grasp how these people could read scripture that is very plain and fail to understand it, and then…boom….he gave me some scripture that was very revealing, and that led me to a very useful revelation. The scripture was 2 Thessalonians 2:
The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, 10and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, 12in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.

 There was a huge lightbulb moment for me when I read this. Firstly, I knew that the man of lawlessness must be on the planet already, and had probably been here for a while ( and it has been revealed to me who he is too), given the deceptions and slide we’ve seen in faith since the 60s. Secondly, I now could see how believers could read plain scripture and somehow twist it into a false meaning, resulting in them literally disagreeing with Jesus. Thirdly, I could see that this was a delusion given them by God Himself, as a punishment for refusing truth from the start and instead remaining ‘delighted in wickedness’. Fourthly, I could see that these people will be judged for their refusal of the truth and continuing in sin, and that the judgement would be ‘guilty’. So, quite a lot was learned from this chapter, and I am sure that I did not find the tweet by chance, nor that the comment made about 2 Thessalonians 2 was by chance, I was sure that God was using a brother to teach me that day, to lead me along the path He wanted me on.

Finally on this topic, you may be thinking ‘what about Jonah, he gave a prophesy to Nineveh and then it didn’t happen, as they repented and God was pleased and let them off?’.
I thought the same thing, so I went to check, knewing there would be coherent explanation, and there was. God doesn’t give His prophets false prophesies, obviously. Here’s the scripture (Jonah 1 & 3):

 1Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying, 2“Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before Me.” Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: 2“Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message that I give you.”

3This time Jonah got up and went to Nineveh, in accordance with the word of the LORD.
 On the first day of his walk, Jonah set out into the city and proclaimed, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned!”
Feel free to check the original Hebrew as I have done, but you will find that God simply told Jonah to preach/proclaim a message or declaration to Nineveh, there was NO prophesy involved. Well played Yah there, He guessed that at some point in the future deceivers would say ‘well, God changed Jonah’s prophesy, so He can change Jesus’ prophesy about the mark of the beast being a killer’. Well, no, God is smarter than the deceivers, by an infinite amount too. He’s perfect our God, you know that right?

I will draw to a close there, the lessons and experiences in this post all fit together nicely, and the next few experiences also do, but they are in a different direction.

Today (23rd April) has been a very strange day, I have been locked out of my Twitter account today, I am not sure whether this is temporary, or whether it’s by God’s hand, or the enemy’s, and I am not too bothered by it at all, as I realised this morning that Christian twitter is 99% comprised of people with the delusions, chit chatting amongst themselves, making zero effort to reach out into unbeliever Twitter and spread the gospel there, because they’re more comfortable with the chit chat. Well, my old twitter account was destroyed by twitter for venturing onto heathen territory, and maybe my current account will be similarly taken down, and if so, I will not bother again, I will leave them all to it and work on my mission with fewer distractions.

Also today, I have felt that Yah was not here with me, so I had a fly, a little floaty one, in the lounge all afternoon, and I was unable to make it leave (as I was still able to do with other flies), so I know who was in that fly, the only evil entity that I can’t command to leave, the boring lying cowardly loser called Satan. He listened to me have a great two hour conversation with a brother in New Zealand, very young in his faith, but who will be flying over to meet me and to be baptised once the lockdown in over. Satan knows who I am, and knows what my role is, and if he wants to watch me all afternoon, it’s no bother to me whatsoever, and keeps him away from others he might afflict. Whilst I was talking to my NZ brother, a spider also appeared on the wall beside me, which I killed. Yesterday as I left the house for a walk, I turned left to head up a tiny lane to the top of the hill, a lane which leads to just a farm that’s up there, nowhere else, a dead end road, and what came down the lane within seconds of me starting to walk up it? A police 4×4 with two police-people in it. I was amused at the timing, knowing that they are keeping tabs on me, but not in the least bit concerned, as I will carry out my role, they cannot stop me. I gave them my best icy glare though.

I will begin a new post tomorrow, it’s a really long story I have to tell, some days I was making 20 pages of notes, and I am only on page 2 of my notes so far, so bear with me, I am just putting it all out here on the blog, I am not deliberately delaying the revelations of who I am, nor any of the big revelations the Lord has revealed (!) to me. I hope you are enjoying the read anyway and perhaps learning a bit along the way.

My big learning point from the experiences in this post is that Yehovah God loves a humble heart, a heart that fears Him, yearns to know Him and serve Him, and is prepared to go all-in for Him, risking relationships, wealth, and comfort for the joy of becoming His slave. He knows that the babes in the faith can escape the deceptions in the churches, so He gives us the chance to fulfill big roles for Him, whilst those who think they know it all, yet have never submitted to His will, have their heads filled with delusions by Him, and are the lost sheep. Some will return to the flock I am sure, that’s part of my role, and if you want to pray for something useful, pray to God that He will be merciful to the deluded in these end times, giving them one last chance to see the truth and to embrace it, and turn away from the sins they love. He has infinite levels of grace, so I am sure He will hear that prayer and respond, and enable you and I to reach out to some lost sheep and bring them back to the flock in the nick of time.

Thanks for reading, may Yah bless you with His wisdom and grace and peace, and we fervently bless Him and His Lord with our love and obedience and desire to help Them in their great plans for mankind, may They be glorified for their gifts to us puny humans. Amen.

  1. Thank you for your writing, brother!

    I find it interesting that you had these experiences with insects and spiders. The Lord has been using them recently to remind me when I begin to stray too far, ever since I received an image in my mind of me looking outside the windows of my home to see spiders raining from the sky together with the interpretation to keep the entryways shut, that the enemy doesn’t come in.
    Thank you for sharing those experiences!

    Regarding Jonah, I do believe, that the Lord is actually using a play on words in the story:
    The word haphak (הָפַךְ) that is translated as “overturned” (destroyed) can also mean “turn around” as in “repent”, which is exactly what happened! I can see the validity of your point, though.
    Still have to read your other posts entirely, but as a note: Jonah is also very briefly mentioned in 2 Kings 14:25 that he was active as a prophet in Israel during the reign of Jeroboam, son of Joash.

    YHWH grant you his peace.

      Thanks for your comment, and your explanation of that meaning of the Hebrew word, Yah does really like word-play a lot.

      I have added an edit to a later post to reflect Jonah’s 2 Kings 14 appearance. Even there I suspect he was more of a messenger than a prophet. Generally prophets tend to be obedient, whereas Jonah just ran away!

      I am considering hiring a film-maker to cover my experiences over Passover and Easter and getting a website up and running. It would take so long to write it all up, video will be quicker and easier to explain, and quicker and easier for viewers to get through too.

      So much to look forward to in the months and years ahead, I am really feeling fired up.

    Hello Gavin, thanks for sharing your story, which is very similar to mine in many ways (mine is here on the blog, the ‘Jehovah is waiting for you’ series).

    KJV is one of the best, but I use BibleHub (app and website) to check across many versions, and also to sometimes look back at the original Hebrew or Greek.

    By all means attend a church, but let the bible/God teach you, pastors err, and often deceive. God’s word does neither. Your faith is strong, the bright lights you saw are a blessing from God, letting you know He loves you.

    I would suggest reading the New Testament, then start on the Old scripture. I have just the prophets to read now. Then I will re-read the new scripture again. I enjoy listening more than reading, using this version:

    My parents think (as I write) that I am having a nervous breakdown! Some huge things have happened to me recently, so I can understand their shock. We are not of this world, just in it.

    Please ensure you and others dear to you with faith have a baptism, I will be writing on that subject, probably today. It’s the entry visa to the Kingdom of God, plus you’ll receive the Holy Spirit too. Also, get married!

    I have just prayed for you, look forward to meeting you during the Millennium reign of our Lord here on earth. God bless. Gary.
