We Must Press into the Kingdom of God—NOW!
Things may look utterly dire outwardly as our cities are disintegrating, our history as a nation is being threatened through the destruction of our historical statues and memorials, education has come to a standstill, freedom of speech is being censored, many businesses have been destroyed, the food supply is threatened, etc. But what we don’t see outwardly is the fact that God is on the move bigtime in his people. The kingdom of God is coming right now—today, this very minute. It is coming within his people—the ones who are completely sold-out to him. We may not see it outwardly as yet, but it is on its way.
When things look really bad all around us, we must remember that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him. It happens at the same time. The greater the evil, the greater the goodness and power of God in his people. The more we see people in the news acting insane, the more the people of God are experiencing the mind of Christ.
We need to understand, though, that the kingdom of God doesn’t just happen. We force our way in. “The kingdom of heaven [God] suffereth violence and the violent take it by force.” (Mathew 11:12, KJV – Matthew used the words “kingdom of heaven” but everywhere else in the gospels it is “kingdom of God.” It is actually the same thing.) What does it mean to be “violent” in the sense of the word used here? In the Greek, violent actually means “those who strive to obtain its privileges with the utmost eagerness and effort.” (Thayer’s Lexicon)
It seems to me that we should all be asking ourselves the question, “Am I forcing my way into the kingdom of God with utmost eagerness and effort?” It would be good to get alone with Jesus and ask him how we are doing in that respect. Ask questions of our self in his presence. How am I spending my time each day? Am I partaking from the table of demons or from the table of the Lord? The Scriptures say you can’t do both. (1 Cor 10:21)
We need to understand that the technological weaponry that is even now being used against humanity will far exceed anything any of us ever dreamed of. I can guarantee you that there is no place that will be safe in the natural realm of our earth. For example, there is no place on earth you can go where there are no chemtrails. They are absolutely covering the entire earth with the stuff they are spraying. We have all inhaled the spray and it has left things within each of us called nano particles. http://globalskywatch.com/health/aerosols/Nano-Particles-and-You,William-Thomas.html
You cannot possibly hide from their technology and their prying eyes. You cannot possibly store up enough food because famine will be worldwide. (As of this writing, half of China is under water with most of their crops utterly destroyed.) Even if you stored up food for the next ten years, your enemies would know it and probably come to your house and take it all away just like they did to the people of the Ukraine under the reign of Josef Stalin in the great Holodomor of 1932/33. Our only safe place will be in Christ and his kingdom even while we are here on earth.
Years ago Jesus told me that I was his secret weapon. I didn’t really understand it then like I do now. I’m not his only secret weapon; he has a great many secret weapons stashed away all over the world only they are so well hidden, even most Christians don’t know about them. I have seen Internet videos where whistleblowers reveal many of our enemies’ secret weapons, but I can guarantee you they pale in comparison to God’s secret weapons. Imagine if you can, thousands upon thousands of deeply committed Christians moving forth in the same power as Elisha. In case you have forgotten I would like to briefly refresh your memory about a few of Elisha’s miracles—a few because they are too numerous to put in this brief article:
- He parted the waters of the Jordan River
- Raised a person from the dead
- Made poisoned food harmless and good for consumption
- Made bad water potable
- Multiplied a jar of oil
- Made an iron ax head float in water
- Multiplied loaves of bread
- Prayed and the Syrian army’s eyes were blinded
- Prayed and his servant’s eyes were opened to the spirit realm
It is true that his predecessor Elijah also performed miracles but there was a difference in the kind of miracles between the two. Elijah’s miracles were mostly more judgmental in nature—calling down fire from heaven to consume his enemies, slaughtering the prophets of Baal, proclaiming a drought, etc. Elisha’s miracles were more merciful in nature although it is true that both of them raised a woman’s son from the dead.
Let’s think for a minute about that power and how it would playout in our world today. Suppose the enemies of God marched into a little town and started going door to door demanding people give them all their food. They actually intend to go into homes and tear them apart looking for any food stored under the floor, in the walls, or any place on the property. They also intend to ruin any implements people have with which to hunt, fish, or till the ground. Suddenly one or two in-Christed Christians come on the scene and quietly pray that God would blind the enemies’ eyes. Instantly the intruders are totally blind, completely helpless and disoriented. They are told to sit on the ground and listen to the gospel. The power of God pours forth driving out all the demons that have taken over these people’s minds and giving them freedom to make a choice for him or against him. Those who sincerely choose Christ will be cared for and those who reject him will drop dead on the spot (like Ananius and Sapphira).
God’s miracles tend to come forth according to the tenor of the society’s needs at the time. When life is fairly good with medical care, food and housing available for most people along with freedom from wars, the Lord usually sees that his people’s needs are met by natural means. But when life in the society at large (and now it is global) is in grave danger of extinction by the enemies of God and humanity, then we can expect that God is going to move miraculously according to the needs at the time. Only God in his supernatural power can save humanity and our planet from the deadly onslaught we are all under at this very hour.
Most people today are very naïve about the depth of evil that is in the hearts and minds of many of the world’s most powerful and influential people. I know something about it because for the past twenty-eight years I have been listening to the memories of innocent survivors who were in satanic rituals with these people. I’ll give you just one example. People have no clue about how brutal Dwight D. Eisenhower was. (I have ministered to two women who were in rituals with him and experienced severe abuse from him.)
At the end of WWII when the Allies marched into Germany, Eisenhower ordered that 1,700,000 German men were to be confined to outdoor areas with barbed wire fences around them and guards at strategic points leaving them there to die in the elements. No food, no water, no bathrooms, no shelter of any kind—human beings made in the image of God left there to starve and die in the elements. Some of those men were Christians who were forced into the war by Hitler. They had no choice. People in nearby towns tried to bring them food and water but were not permitted to do so. Even the Red Cross was turned away. The war was over but this continued for months after the war had officially ended. This was a crime against humanity. Eisenhower got around the Geneva Convention by designating the men Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEF) rather than prisoners of war which they truly were. It is interesting that one of the other Allied commanders, General George Patton, vehemently disagreed with Eisenhower and simply allowed his prisoners to go free and find their way home on their own. It is reported by reputable witnesses (one being Eisenhower’s interpreter) that Eisenhower was so angry with Patton that he ordered his assassination. A fake automobile accident was planned to take Patton out. The accident turned out to be only a fender-bender, but Patton was taken to a hospital anyway and then poisoned just as he was ready to leave the hospital.
Does what happened to Eisenhower’s prisoners remind you of anything? Think about what happened during hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. People were told to go to the stadium. Twenty thousand people went into the stadium. Once there, no one was allowed to leave. The scant supplies of food and water lasted only briefly. (There was plenty of warning time to have made sure supplies were available at the stadium.) Toilets were soon overflowing and people had to just squat on the floor somewhere. The roof collapsed in one area allowing water to get in. The stench was unbearable. People were raped, beaten, one was murdered and one committed suicide. Others died because they no longer had their medications—and their bodies were left there until five days after the people had entered the stadium and people were slowly being allowed out.
In the midst of this many outsiders came to New Orleans with water, food and supplies to help but were turned away, including the Red Cross. People trying to leave the city were forced back in. There were military men who happened to be flying helicopters near the city who saw people on the roofs of their flooded houses crying out for help. They immediately went over to them and rescued many of them. These pilots were reprimanded by their commanders for doing so. People’s guns were confiscated by authorities leaving the people helpless against gangs of thugs roaming around the area looting and pillaging.
What if this was a test to see just how people would react in such a situation? What if our government was part of the whole test operation? This would explain why Bush junior had supplies marked for New Orleans sent to another location for some red-tape paperwork delaying their arrival in New Orleans by two days. Many other strange directives from Washington can be seen here: https://www.politico.com/story/2012/10/10-facts-about-the-katrina-response-081957.
I say all these things, not to frighten anyone, but to point out that our hope for the future lies in Jesus Christ and in him alone. Now is the time to press into God like never before. Spend as much time as possible in prayer and in the Word. Memorize passages, spend time meditating on the character and majesty of God. Pray for God’s guidance in all things. Turn off your TV, or better yet, get rid of it. We got rid of our TV last winter. I can enthusiastically say that was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We spend more time relating with one another. We read quality books that enrich our minds and build our faith. We spend time outside gardening and building up our supply of firewood for the winter.
Seek God with all your heart. He promises us in the Word that he who seeks, finds, that he who feeds the birds will feed us, and he will clothe us like he clothes the flowers of the field. There is one requirement however, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,” then our needs will be supplied.
