The Future Pt. 2
Gen. Deborah Green
P RAISE GOD. Welcome to Battle Cry Sounding/ Battle Cry Pounding; yes, the Lord is on the move. Now, you know, we people are stupid. We think we're going to put God in our little corridor, and we're going to have God operate just the way we want Him to, and then we're going to be able to say, "God is moving, and I am in control."
I got news for you honey—WHEN GOD IS MOVING, NOBODY'S IN CONTROL EXCEPT GOD; not even the devil is in control! I mean the meddlers are always there to try to interfere. But, when God is moving, God is in control.
Now, you know, people say, "Well, you know, you just want to tell us all about the risen God; now you want to tell us all about repentance." Oh, and what do you have to talk about? Your self.
Now, the thing of it is, GOD CHANGES HIS MOODS; GOD CHANGES WHAT IT IS THAT HE WANTS TO DO. If you don't think God changes, look at the sky sometime. One day you'll see it, it's clear blue, then the chemtrails will come, but you can't blame that on God...but, it will just be this clear, most pure blue you've ever seen.
Now, some of you, if you live in smog-ridden Hell-hole cities—bound to be damned by those Sodom and Gomorrahs, you may think, "Well, I don't even know what a blue sky is." Well, I do. But, what I'm telling you is, you may look at that sky one day and it's beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL crystalline blue, and then the next day, that same sky will be full of dark clouds that are moving so fast you can't even watch them—how fast they go. At other times, there'll be these real white billowy clouds, or feather clouds, or maybe nothing but a gray sky because you're going to get snow or rain. And all this change takes place.
Now, who's going to shake their finger at the sky and say, "I want blue sky every day"? But, you know, that's how cheap we get with God. We want to dictate to God. We want everything just to go oh so smooth, and oh so nice, and oh so good for us—never growing, never being extended, never being expanded in God—because we've got in our little comfort zone, and there we want to stay. It's true.
You know what? Comfort's a pig. It's a PIG! Because when you want everything comfortable, you're lazy, man; you're spiritually lazy. You don't want God to rile you up, rough you up, turn you over, and make you grow; you just want to lay in your wallow. But you know what? The day of reckoning is here, and God is measuring people up to what they are, and what they are meant to be. And it is a time that God is calling for repentance, repentance, REPENTANCE.
Now, this is part 2 in the message called "The Future." Since this is January 2014, we're going to find out what the future holds. But, we were here the last time, and I was stressing how that when Jesus, in chapter 13 of Mark, reading from the Amplified version, and if you don't trust Mark, try Matthew 24 and Luke 21.
But, what it was, IS THEY WERE PROUD OF THEIR WORKS, they were proud of their architectural development and achievement, they were proud of the beautiful stones that had been hewn out, and they were proud of how long it had taken them to build that temple, and how long that temple would remain standing.
And Jesus said, "Hey, doesn't move me at all." Do you know why? Because He said, “Not even one stone's going to be left on another.” And what is America bound in? It's bound in pride; it's bound in pride of building; it's bound in pride of works; it's bound in lifestyle pride. If you're a middle to upper-middle class Christian, then you've got to have God in your little corridor so you can have your beautiful home, your beautiful vehicles, your securities—in everything but God.
How about your job; how about your career; how about your education from the world/how about in the world; how about your great talents and capabilities; how about your computer expertise? How about everything except the Living God—because you love your stupid middle-class lifestyle, you love your comforts, you love your securities, but you don't love God.
And do you know what God has got to say to you? "GO AHEAD FOOL, AND I'LL LEAVE IT ALL A HEAP OF RUBBLE RIGHT IN YOUR FACE." It's true. Look at some of the footage over the last year of Operation Devastation since hurricane Sandy, even before that. Look at what tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and sinkholes are doing to this country. Look at what blizzards, blinding snow-storms, wind-storms, and dust-storms do to this country, and all the great achievements of men's pride.
Is God impressed? He said, "Hun-uh, I'll just take it all down before your face, and I'll leave it to you as a monument of your works, as a monument of your pride, and as a monument of YOUR FAILURE TO TRUST IN ME the Living God—who is your Creator." We got a lot of repenting to do—all of us that call ourselves "American." We got a lot of repenting to do because we set ourselves up as the judge of the whole earth, as the beginning and the end, as the Almighty, and we're proven to be the biggest of fools. We're down in such a heap of moral decay and ruination we've MURDERED 60 MILLION OF OUR OWN BABIES, and the blood is so high in the spirit.
God told me when it gets chest high, this country's doomed forever, and it will be utterly destroyed. 20 years ago He told me it was KNEE DEEP IN THE SPIRIT—the blood that has been shed of the innocent—so people could have their "sexual freedom," which means they're full-scale on lust; that's all it is.
But Jesus didn't lie to them. He told them the truth; they just didn't perceive the truth because they were blinded by their pride, they were blinded by their accomplishments, and they were blinded by their determination. And we're in the same condition in this wicked generation.
Now, Jesus came declaring "REPENTANCE," why? Why was He declaring to the Jew—the apple of God's eye, the wonderful people, the beautiful people, God's chosen—why did He come declaring repentance? Because He said: "You're so far from God, you don't even know God; you're of your father the devil."
John the Baptist said, "You generation of vipers." And what did John the Baptist come declaring, "Prepare the way of the Lord; repent; prepare the way of the Lord; REPENT." So, obviously, GOD'S OWN PEOPLE NEEDED REPENTANCE. AND OBVIOUSLY, GOD'S OWN PEOPLE NEED REPENTANCE NOW!
You know, there's a lot of people that say they belong to God, say they love God, say they serve God, and they've completely eliminated repentance and the Cross from their lives. They live in sin, they live in darkness, they live in iniquity day, after day, after day, and they do not repent unto God; they do not draw near unto God.
Do you know what? I'm going to tell you something, and this is the truth, the closer you draw to God, the more you see how far you are from God. Say, "Well, that doesn't make sense; that sounds like a riddle.” Well, go jump on the griddle, prepare yourself for Hell. The truth of it is this: when you get near to God, you see the darkness that's in your own carnality.
When you keep God afar off, you keep up your walls of pride and pretend like you're jolly-Joe; you don't even fathom what you're doing to God. You're wasting the time God's given you upon this earth. You're wasting your inheritance of Jesus Christ the Lord—BECAUSE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE MADE INTO THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF THE SON OF GOD, AND WE DON'T GET THERE WITHOUT EFFORT, in other words, without putting the effort to subject ourselves to God.
You know, some people have a lackadaisical attitude towards God. "Well, if God wants me, He can come and get me." You know? "Well, I'm ok with the old man upstairs. I'm cool; I'm ok; I'm all right." Do you know why you can say those things? Because you're far from God. You're far from God. You're living in your own world, you're living in your own evil imagination, and you're living just where these Jews were living when they were proud of their temple, when they were proud of their religion, when they were proud of their lifestyle, when they were proud of all their what?...I don't know.
See, it was all in their minds. There they were in subjectivity to the Romans—one of the most vile, reprobate, evil, cruel people that have ever been recorded upon the face of the earth; and they were ruled by those people. If they were so great in the eyes of God, why were they ruled by the Romans? Because they were receiving punishment from God.
The reason I have called this portion here that I'm giving you, "The Future," is because every time there's a new-year flip over, people want to hear some GREAT prophecy about the future. And they always want that prophecy to be about, "Yea, yea, yea, I say, say, say, hey, hey, I will let you play, play, play—if you pay, pay, pay." "Wow! Yeah" praise the God of lust, praise the God of money, and praise the God of self. Demonized ghouls.
But I'm telling you how Jesus told it. If you look at the blueprint, if you look at the outline, Jesus didn't hide anything from them. He said, "Look gang, I'm going to fully prepare you. First of all, your great accomplishment, your big temple is going to be torn down one stone from on top of another—there's not even going to be one stone left."
Now, about that time they got in all the ear plugs. Ok, now we're going to go a little farther. It says in verse 3, "And as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple [enclosure], Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him privately, Tell us…uh, hi Jesus, we'd like a spiritual secret, we'd like a special scoop—so we can show everybody we know more than they do; we'd like a special reavy—heavy-reavy.” How many of you fit in that category—not just you but the audience at large—how many of you want some 'special revelation'—so you can be superior to everyone else, and you can show how close you are to God, because you have this big-time secret?
Always, people want to know, "Do you have any teachings from the book of Revelation?" Yeah, “you’re fat, increased in goods, and have need of nothing; but you're miserable, blind, and wretchedly poor in the eyes of God.” Did you like that? That's revelation. "Tell us when is this to take place and what will be the sign when these things, all [of them], are about to be accomplished?" No man knows the date or the hour—the day or the hour, and here they're trying to get it.
"But Jesus," it says, "And Jesus began to tell them, Be careful and watchful that no one misleads you [about it]. Many will come in [appropriating to themselves] the name,” it says in parenthesis, “[of Messiah] which belongs to Me [basing their claims on the use of My name], saying, I am [He]! And they will mislead many."
Now, I want to point out something to you here—that if you're sloppy in your scholarship, then you're not seeing it. He is not saying that this is some anti-Christ. He's not saying this is one man, He's saying "MANY."
How many are there in this generation of wickedness, of perversion, of twisting and perverting the Word of God, of false messages and messengers, how many are saying, "The Lord told me this; the Lord told me that; I had a dream; oh, the Lord spoke to me, He said, “Yea, yea, yea my dumb son. Build a multi-billion dollar nursing home and bring in the weak, the sick, the maimed; make sure they've got money to pay the bill; and bring in all who are needy of healing hands hospital hospice nursing home, rest-home, money-grabbing…I'm sorry, other such things, retirement center for the infirmed. And I know this is of the Lord; I know this is God. Now, who's going to give that first billion? Let me see that hand go up; let me see that check come in; let me see that cash be put right here on this pulpit." That's not from God.
Jesus didn't need no "healing hands" nursing home; Jesus put His hands on them, and they were healed. So, some greedy-grasper is saying: "The Lord said this, the Lord said that, the Lord wants this, and the Lord wants that." They're LIARS.
So, what did Jesus say? He said, "MANY are going to come in my name." What are they doing? They're acting like they are the Lord. In other words, they're tying to make you think their babble, and their proliferation of fantasies is the Lord’s. So, like He said, "They're trying to act like they're Me; they're trying to act like they've got it all together." We're right there. This was a warning for them; this is a warning for now. You wonder what's in the future? More of what we've got right now—if people don't repent.
Ok, then it goes on and it says in verse 7, "And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not get alarmed (troubled and frightened); it is necessary [that these things] take place, but the end is not yet." Well, it's obvious that we are living in a time of wars, and rumors of wars, and more rumors of wars, and more wars, and more prolonged wars, and more 20 year wars, and more 30 years wars, and more endless wars—WAR, WAR, WAR.
"Oh, we're going to go to war with you know, this country; we're going to go war with that country, we're going to invade this nation; we're going to invade that nation; and we're going to blah, blah, blah, blah.” It's all war. Hmm? And He said, "You're not supposed to get frightened at that, because the end isn't here yet."
So in other words, what He's saying, "It's not going to be peace and safety; it's not going to be a comfortable, tranquil life where the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the children are playing their sweet little childish games like rape your neighbor, shoot your brother, you know, such things."
"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines and calamities. This is but the beginning of the intolerable anguish and suffering [only the first of the birth pangs]."
Now, if this people would have been repentant, if this people would have received their Messiah, if this people would have recognized the Living God—Jesus Christ the Lord—if this people would have cooperated with God, His predictions for the future could have been entirely different.
Did you know we bring these things to ourselves? Come on. We bring these things to ourselves; we gravitate the evil, we gravitate the hardship, we gravitate the calamity—because of disobedience, pride, and rebellion, against God.
So, people say, "Well, I don't like your prediction of the future." Well, go tell it to the Lord—because America's in the same shape that ancient Israel was in when Jesus came in the flesh. THE FUTURE FOR THIS LAND, AND MOST OF THE WORLD, IS THE SAME: HE SAYS THERE'S GOING TO BE WAR. HE SAID NATION'S GOING TO RISE AGAINST NATION, KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM. HE SAID THERE'S GOING TO BE EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES. THERE WILL BE FAMINES AND CALAMITIES: "This is but the beginning of the intolerable anguish and suffering [only the first of the birth pangs]."
Then He says, "But look to yourselves; for they will turn you over to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake as a testimony to them. And the good news (the Gospel) must first be preached to all nations."
So, what's He saying? "YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE A LUXURIOUS, COMFORTABLE, WELL-ACCEPTED, WELL-RECEIVED MINISTRY, BUT YOU'RE GOING TO SUFFER FOR MY NAME. YOU'RE GOING TO ENTER INTO AND REMAIN IN HATRED AGAINST YOU, IMPRISONMENT, BEATINGS, REJECTION, TAKING YOU BEFORE COUNCILS AND EVALUATIONS, AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE TERMED A FOOL; YOU'RE GOING TO BE TERMED MAD-MEN; YOU'RE GOING TO BE TERMED OUTCASTS. THAT'S WHAT YOUR FUTURE'S GOING TO HAVE. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?" He said, "THE GOSPEL HAS TO BE PREACHED."
"Well, you know, when I feel there's an opening, and everything, it just looks like a big G-O, and everything's green, and I've got money coming in and people that will support me, and I've got people that will help me, and…and…you know, when it gets there, then I'll know that the Lord wants me uh…um…then uh... I'll know the Lord wants me to preach. And until then, I just think He wants me to keep at my job so I can worship my securities, make idols out of my benefits, get my wife so fat and flourishing that she can barely waddle, and then I'll enjoy a little of the good life too. And I mean, the Lord doesn't really care if us guys watch a little porn here and there because He knows we're men, and He knows we love Him, and uh, you know, um, when the Lord, you know, makes everything a good, green, G-O, then…" YOU FAT LIAR! YOU HYPOCRITE! YOU FAKE!
Look at the conditions He gave to those who were the first-fruits, who were the followers, who were the disciples. He said, "You're going to be hated," He said, "You're going to be imprisoned," He said, "You're going to be beaten," He said, "You're going to be rejected," He said, "All this is going to happen, but the Gospel must be preached!"
I’ve got news for you. If you think you're going in some rapture, I'm rupturing it—there's no rapture, and you're not going anywhere because the Gospel has not been preached. And you're going to know days of anguish, trouble, and sorrow—because of disobedience, because of pride, because of refusal to obey the commission that God gave, and to repent before God for the sins you're guilty of, to get it right with God and DECLARE THE GOSPEL/THE CALL TO REPENT UNTO ALL MEN.
Oh, you know, they should call the last 50, 60, 70 years of Christianity, "The Escapist;" it's true: "The Escapist." I think ever since the rapture doctrine came in with force—because the Christians stopped watching, and praying, and stopped staying alert and alive to God—that the whole escapist mentality has come in. And no, they don't want to just escape the trouble NOW, they want to escape God completely.
"But look to yourselves; for they will turn you over to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake as a testimony to them. And the good news (the Gospel) must first be preached to all nations."
Then it says, "Now when they take you [to the court] and put you under arrest, do not be anxious beforehand about what you are to say nor [even ] meditate about it; but say whatever is given you in that hour and at the moment, for it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will hand over brother to death, and the father his child; and children will take a stand against their parents and [have] them put to death. And you will be hated and detested by everybody for My name's sake, but he who patiently perseveres and endures to the end will be saved (made a partaker of the salvation by Christ, and delivered from spiritual death)."
Now, what happened to the once-saved, always- saved and Jesus-did-it-all doctrine? He said, "No, you're going to have to go through this. YOU are going to have to know these things, you are going to have to fellowship Me there, and you are going to be hated, beaten, rejected, and despised."
Now, do you want to be a Christian, good-life lover? Do you want to be a Christian, fat cat—that wants a pat on the back? Do you want to be a Christian, pride, arrogance, conceit, deceit? Do you want to be a Christian, mega-church maniac; you want to be a Christian, kick-out-the-walls concert-lover? You want to be a Christian, mad-rapper? you want to be a Christian, "Duh-uh…I'm a heavy-metal ape; I can't even think..uh"? Come on; how about you prosperity pigs: "Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme!"
Do you want to be a Christian? Do you want to say you're following Christ. You want to say you're walking in the way of the master? You want to say that the future is going to all be beautiful—oh beautiful cars, beautiful teeth, beautiful wife and children, beautiful lying, scheming, and plotting against God?
YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN? I THINK WE'D BETTER EXAMINE OURSELVES. Say, "Well, what do I have for my choices?" Either you believe upon Him, repent unto Him, and be redeemed, OR believe upon all the other gods, all the other idols, and all the other contrivances of men, and be damned.
So take your choice. You're either going to go through it now for Him, and be saved, OR you're going to go through it throughout eternity because you rejected Him, you rejected the way of light, you rejected the way of repentance, and you rejected the way of truth—because you loved yourself. And then you're going to be forever in Hell.
So, do you want to be a Christian? Do you want to walk in this kind of a future? Do you want to face reality? OR do you want to go on and live in your cloud? "Hey, hey, hee, hee—get off my cloud!" How about if I stick a pin in your cloud, and it all falls down to the ground, and you find out you're full of pride, contempt, and hatred for God, and you find out your big doctrine has been given to you by false messiahs/false-Christs? WHAT'S IN THE FUTURE? THE OPPORTUNITY, THE OPPORTUNITY—IF WE FINISH THE COURSE, TO BE SAVED. AMEN.
