Deception: A False Rapture

On September 25, 2016, I had this dream which is playing out in my mind again.

Someone was telling me that she was trying to look in the eye every man she met because she thought the Messiah had probably returned and was among us. I told her she was wrong to assume that the Lord had returned. Looking out and pointing up to the sky I told her that no one would miss His return for He would come in the clouds with great signs. While still speaking and looking up, I saw clouds forming like chariots and coming down so fast that I exclaimed, “Just like that!”

I realized that the Lord could be coming already as I also saw people going up into the sky. I thought I had to go with them. Excitedly, I ran towards the direction of those people going up in the clouds. As I reached the platform, I got confused especially when I lined up with others on the wooden and narrow steps. But I climbed the stairs somehow. I was waiting for my turn while I wondered why the rapture was taking so long for others including me. As I got to the third and final step, I looked ahead; adjusting my eyes in the dark I saw that those who went before me were being lifted on what looked like the tip of a wooden ship that tilted up. Then I realized it was not what I expected. I turned around and tried to tell everyone that it was not real but nobody seemed to hear me. I was concerned, more so because I saw a woman directing the whole incident. She told someone to send me away for I was disrupting their plan. I stepped aside trying to understand what was going on. I looked to my right and noticed straight ahead something like a wide tunnel that was dimly lit. I looked intently and realized that those people I saw going up to the clouds earlier were actually sent there and others were still going. I felt so bad that they were oblivious and seemed to not notice at all. They were like walking dead, hypnotized, and I knew that this was a deception recalling how they could have created those cloud formations that I saw and made it appear from a distance that people were actually going up into the sky only to be sent down to the long tunnel.

What concerns me about this dream is the condition of those people I saw in the platform and in the tunnel. It’s like the Holy Spirit made sure that I saw that they were helplessly deceived.

There is no doubt about the second coming of the Lord, in fact, I am excited that I pray daily for His return. But this dream is certainly a warning of a false catching away.

I believe that when the Lord returns the saints will meet Him in the air but I do not believe in a rapture other than and apart from His glorious appearing to reign as King. Consider the message of Paul as he describes the coming of the Messiah and the saints meeting Him in the air:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

In his second letter to the Thessalonians, Paul mentioned again the coming of the Lord and the saints gathering together to Him, further describing the signs that precede the event:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ[a] had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He[d] who now restrains will do so until He[e] is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Will there be a false rapture, a false alarm for the believers? I do not know but we must take note of Yeshua’s warning about false christs and false prophets who will use signs and wonders to deceive even the elect if it be possible. He also describes in plain language the manner in which He will return:

Matthew 24:23-31

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

John also spoke of the lawless one, the beast who will perform great signs to deceive those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 13:13

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

The second coming of the Messiah is a glorious event that no one on earth will ever miss it. If this dream is indeed prophetic, then the Lord is warning us about watching for a rapture that is not also about His coming back to reign as King.

Fix your eyes on the Messiah, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Get to know Him intimately and learn to recognize His voice so that you will not be deceived. The way to recognize the fake is to be so familiar with the genuine. And as the Lord admonished us, let us watch and pray.

Love in Yeshua,

The Bilderberg Doctrine (A New World Order Agenda): A Dream

I was reading this article from the Prophecy News Watch, “Palestinian Leadership Hijack Christianity: Jesus Declared a Palestinian“, which then reminded me of the dream I had last year. I checked my notes and alas, the dream was on Dec. 9, 2013, around the Christmas season. Since we are still in the Christmas season this year, which the Lord spoke to me and kept me awake all night of Dec. 21 by the way, that “Christmas is an abomination” (I’ll write on this separately), I felt the nudge to publish the dream. Below is what I wrote over a year ago.

Photobucket

Christmas Time

“Today, Dec 9, 2013, I have this very vivid dream and it was 3:00 a.m. when I woke up from it. There was a symposium in the university I was going to in this dream (the same university I graduated from), about something that the the global powers were introducing to the school system. I saw on the stage a picture of the Holy Family together with other saintly men on either side. The image was similar to the Christmas Nativity except that there was no manger and the child was no baby anymore. Below the image was this caption: “For the Promotion of Christ and Family.” The “Christ” was in italics. Below the caption was a big, oblong logo with the words boldly written “Bilderberg Doctrine.”

I knew very well in the dream that it was about the Antichrist, in fact, I looked at “Christ” intently as I suspected it could really be “Antichrist.” Since I saw only “Christ,” I thought, “What a deception, using religion and family to promote their agenda!” I looked around and saw how everybody was so ignorant believing that it was a noble cause to promote Christ and Family as a means to unite the world when this is obviously the cause of the satanic elite, the Bilderberg Group, to bring in the New World Order. I felt bad as I knew how the people have been so conditioned to accept the Beast System. I looked at one woman who has the handouts smiling as she was talking to another. I thought to myself that these people already have the Mark of the Beast so that the physical mark may not really be necessary anymore. I also thought and felt sad that the implementation of the Bilderberg Doctrine was very effective as they introduced it through the educational system, making it a part of the curriculum. As I watched the whole scene from the back were I was seated, I felt so alone and knew that anytime soon I would be singled out and perhaps expelled from school as I won’t submit to this doctrine. (Note: I am not familiar with the Bilderberg group and have no idea what their plans really are but I do know that this group is composed of those elites who I believe are members of the Illuminati and that they run the world behind the scene).

Then I was back in the classroom. I listened to my Muslim classmate talked to another classmate who was not a Muslim. They were both excited, praising the University President who is able to promote unity among students and professors of diverse ethnicity and religion in the campus, particularly between Muslims and Christians. My heart was very heavy because I knew that the One World Government was now in force and I felt very alone.”

This dream now reminds me of another dream I just had 3 days ago. On the night of Dec. 26, I prayed fervently, asking God to show me anything that’s coming in 2015. Around 4:00 a.m. of Dec. 27 I woke up to this dream:

“I was in a building that seems to be in its early construction as there were yet no walls around it. I was there with some others and we were trying to hide from the authorities who were rounding up Christians and taking them captive. I was going up and down, trying to find some place to hide. As I found no safe place, I ran outside and went to a one-storey building. A guy was already in there hiding. Others followed and while we were trying to lock the door the captors came and shouted, “Every body in the Synagogue come out!” I thought, “So this place is a Synagogue.” Then I realized that both Christians and Jews were their targets.”

Many are aware that there is already a growing persecution of Christians especially in the Middle East. Jews are also being attacked even in their Synagogues. Will the persecution spread and increase in 2015? I am not sure and this is a topic of its own so I digress.

In view of the upcoming visit of Pope Francis here in the Philippines, I believe that these dreams are very timely for one of his goals in coming to the country is to promote unity among the different religions. See here.

The true Church knows what these things mean. As we stand firm in the Truth in the midst of the ever increasing apostasy in the Body, we will soon be the target of persecution; for in these days we are the new radical extremists and bigots who don’t belong to the new world of unity and tolerance.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy[a] to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. (Luke 21:36)

Brothers and sisters, let us “work out our salvation with fear and trembling for it is God who works in us both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:12-13)

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Visions of the New World, America and the Church

Update May 14, 2013

The New World Order is rising fast. It is now just a matter of time. America is on her way to destruction to give way to this evil agenda of the Antichrist. The present world system is on the brink of collapse because of the evil that has gone up so high into the heavens. God chose America to lead the nations but failed in her role when she corrupted herself with all forms of wickedness. America’s arrogance caused her to defy the One who blessed her. Such pride is her downfall.

Proverbs 16:18 (CJB)

Pride goes before destruction,
    and arrogance before failure.

The only place of security in the coming days of more evil is with the Lord Jesus Christ. You must give your life and place all your hope in Him for He will certainly not turn away anyone who comes to Him. He who kept Noah and his family safe during the flood and saved Lot and family from the fire and brimstone will certainly keep those who are truly His when He pours out His judgment upon America and the rest of the world.

Please read this article by Pamela Rae Schuffert from the ‘American Holocaust and the Coming New World Order’ blog:

http://americanholocaustcoming.blogspot.com/2013/05/military-killing-nwo-resistance-within.html

Excerpt:

The WAR is HERE and NOW.

Readers, pray for the protection of the courageous NWO resistance within every branch of the US military. Even now, they are secretly fighting underground, in countless ways, on behalf of the American people and their freedoms. You don’t have a clue as to what they have already done to delay and hold back martial law and to protect you. And you CAN’T know, because their very lives and success depend on their remaining covert.

==============================================================================

This article would have been published three or four days ago but the enemy stood in the way. Tried as he might, however, the Lord Jesus always prevails. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who prayed with me on this, and highest praises to the Father who always hears the prayers of the saints.

The visions and the words I receive from the Lord are often about America and the Church but it does not mean that the world has no part in the warnings. It does not mean also that America is the only nation under divine judgment for every nation has fallen deep into sin and the righteous Father certainly has an appointed time for each before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the conquering Messiah. I believe that the reason for God’s focus on America is that her fall is a significant indicator that the we are entering into the time of tribulation if we are not there yet. The visions I am sharing are just about that.

Phoenix Rising

On November 27, 2012 during my evening prayer, an image of a flaming phoenix flashed vividly. I thought “evil” but I didn’t bother and just continued praying. Then the image flashed again and this time I heard, “Phoenix Rising.” Then I thought, “Evil is rising and it’s rising fast.” The following day the Lord confirmed the vision and the thought when I saw a man crossing the street who was wearing a shirt with the image of a Phoenix and a big demon’s face above it.

I searched for the image of “Phoenix Rising” again to attach to this article and I found this one which comes even closer to the vision than the first time I searched for it on Google images:

http://angeliq.deviantart.com/art/Phoenix-rising-wallpaper-89576506

Despite my lack of understanding of the “Phoenix Rising,” I always had the feeling that it is associated with evil as it is often depicted as such just like the one on the man’s shirt I mentioned above. Brother Carlos of Nabiy4America (http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/) gave me a deeper insight into the meaning of the “Phoenix Rising” which means the New World Order rising from the ashes of America’s destruction as hinted in the “Great Seal of America.” As I searched for the concept of the “New World Order and Phoenix Rising,” I found this book which title fits so well, “Phoenix Rising: The Rise and Fall of the American Republic” and whose author Donald G. Lett, Jr. is a Christian.

http://books.google.com.ph/books?id=ZPA_iRdmJa0C&printsec=frontcover&hl=fil#v=onepage&q&f=false

In the book the author mentioned how America who once was an Eagle turned into the legendary Phoenix that will soon fall to ashes to give rise to the New World Order that the world leaders and the covert powers are working relentlessly to bring about. The cults and the occults know this very well. They hinted on this in the London Summer Olympics 2012’s opening and closing ceremonies. The Vigilant Citizen published “The Occult Symbolism of the 2012 Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies” here:

http://vigilantcitizen.com/vigilantreport/the-occult-symbolism-of-the-2012-olympics-opening-and-closing-ceremonies/

As if emerging from the fire produced by the petals (representing Nations of the world), a phoenix appears above the cauldron.

The vision of the Phoenix Rising is no doubt the Father’s confirmation that the devil’s agenda is really close at hand, that is, to bring the nations together in the guise of peace and unity into a One World Government ruled by his final embodiment, the Antichrist. Again, this will come into fruition as the present world system led by America will fall. From the ashes of America and the present system comes the new Phoenix, the New World Order. The vision I am sharing next is further confirmation of this.

America and the Bride

In the early morning of January 3, as I was still in bed praying, my spiritual eyes caught these visions: First, I saw a girl of about 10 to 12 years old standing by the beach, her back towards me. I could see that she was wearing a swimsuit of red and blue stripes, the color of the American flag. Even from behind I could see that she was healthy and had a lovely feature. Then the girl transformed into a woman. She wore the same swimsuit of red and blue stripes but no longer looked pretty. She’s an obese; her unwanted fats were bulging. Next I saw a bride standing on the porch of an old tower. This second scene was devoid of colors. It looked like an ancient black and white movie or photo. The bride was holding a bouquet and was looking far into the horizon. From her point I could see the depth below so I knew it was a very tall tower where she was standing. Then I saw another thing. I saw this message, “America’s Destruction is at Hand,” boldly printed on a bond paper.  The paper was placed into a paper bag and a stone, the size of a fist, was thrust onto the paper to make sure it sank to the bottom of the bag. As the paper got to the bottom with the stone, it went further down and I gasped as I realized that the paper bag turned into a black hole, a bottomless pit. The paper with the message just kept falling.

The first and the last scenes obviously show the condition of America. She started out as lovely and grew up as an obese. As I pondered on the vision I remembered the word which says it well:

James 5:5

You have led a life of luxury and self-indulgence here on earth — in a time of slaughter, you have gone on eating to your heart’s content.

The lovely girl who once was America had fattened herself and became obese, invited destruction upon herself. Reading on to the next verse the Apostle James says:

James 5:6

You have condemned, you have murdered the innocent; they have not withstood you.

Abortion? Certainly this is the thing that comes to our mind immediately; and sadly, January 22 happens to be the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade which opened the way to unprecedented murdering of the innocent to this very day. But could this be all? Americans know their history probably well, I suppose. The author of the “Phoenix Rising” book mentioned above wrote the instances America shed innocent blood other than abortion both inside and out of her territories.

My dear American brothers and sisters, I know that it is hard to accept that your beloved nation is going to the pit. But the latter part of the vision is clear; the Lord has sealed the judgment that is to come upon the nation. This vision of thrusting with a stone into the bottomless pit the message that “America’s Destruction is at Hand” parallels the word of the Prophet Jeremiah when he concluded his pronouncement of judgment against Babylon with these words:

Jeremiah 51:61-64:

Yirmeyahu said to S’rayah, “See to it that when you arrive in Bavel you read all these words aloud. Then say, ‘Adonai, you have promised to destroy this place, that no one will live here, neither human nor animal, but that it will be desolate forever.’ When you finish reading this scroll, tie a rock to it, throw it into the middle of the Euphrates, and say, ‘Like this, Bavel will sink, never to rise again, because of the disaster I am bringing on her; and they will grow weary.’” (CJB)

The vision of John in Revelations 18:21 is eerily the same as the message of America’s Destruction sinking deep into the abyss.

Revelations 18:21

Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a great millstone, and hurled it into the sea, saying,

“With violence like this
will the great city Bavel
be hurled down,
never to be found again!

Going now to the Bride in the ancient tower, the first thing that came to mind was Rapunzel. I thought she was held captive in that tower just like Rapunzel. I prayed and it hit me that the Bride represented the Apostate Church and the tower was Babylon or the tower of Babylon. As an Apostate Church she is one in spirit with Babylon or was held captive by Babylon. To this Bride the word of the Lord rings loud:

Revelations 18:4-5

Then I heard another voice out of heaven say:
“My people, come out of her!
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not be infected by her plagues,
for her sins are a sticky mass piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes…”

As I prayed further, the Lord gave me the other meaning of the Bride. She also represents the True Church. She is the Remnant Bride who is kept safe in the Ancient Tower who is God. The Scriptures below bear witness to this truth.

Proverbs 18:10
The name of Adonai is a strong tower;  a righteous person runs to it and is raised high [above danger].

Psalms 18: (3)2
“Adonai is my Rock, my fortress and deliverer,
my God, my Rock, in whom I find shelter,
my shield, the power that saves me,
my stronghold.

Psalms 61: 4(3)
For you have been a refuge for me,
a tower of strength in the face of the foe.

Daniel 7:21-22
I watched, and that horn made war with the holy ones and was winning, until the Ancient One came, judgment was given in favor of the holy ones of the Most High, and the time came for the holy ones to take over the kingdom.

Truly the Bride as the True Church looked safe and secure in the ancient and formidable tower. The tower she’s standing on is her refuge which set her high above the ground. But as an Apostate Church the tower is her prison, her bondage.

For the Christians, where do you stand? Are you the True Church or the Apostate Church. Are you one with the Holy Spirit or with the spirit of Babylon? Are you living your life for Him or for yourself? Are you walking in the narrow path to life or in the broad highway to death? Time is running short. God is calling out to those who have ears to hear. It is time to straighten up! It is time to get into the ark.

If you are one who is still lost in this world, Jesus is the only way, the truth and the life and no one goes to the Father except through Him. If you have not received Him as your Savior, now is the time to do it. Tomorrow or even later may be too late.

Love in Christ Jesus,

Cynthia

P.S.
The following are worth sharing:

Sometime last December 2012, the Lord woke me up with this message: “Christmas greetings signed by Babylonians in the city.”

I didn’t bother to think which city that was for the spirit of Babylon is widespread. It is global and it has long invaded the Church. It is most dominant and prevalent during Christmas and other non-Biblical so-called Christian holidays.

Also on December I dreamed that a woman was telling me ungraciously that I was wrong about something. My human nature wanted to lash out but I remembered it was not the right response for one who is under the rule of the Holy Spirit, so I explained gently but firmly. Then I felt the Holy Spirit took over, convicting the woman in front of me, and as the Spirit led, I ended up speaking/addressing the Church in a lengthy speech just like what happened to Peter during the Pentecost. I was telling the Church of something it was not doing right.

Yesterday the Lord woke me up from a quick nap. I saw Obama addressing the crowd about the Sandy Hook shooting; then I heard clearly, ‘hoax’ and ‘gun control.’

I saw the video that exposes the “Sandy Hook” incident as a hoax nearly two weeks ago. In the rule of law even if the story is true it is non-conclusive unless proven in court. However, if the Lord says it is a ‘hoax,’ whether or not the culprits and the courts will admit, we can rest assured that it is true. Here’s is the story (Thanks to Susan for sharing):

http://theintelhub.com/2013/01/09/evidence-sandy-hook-school-shooting-staged-by-factions-of-us-government-and-mainstream-media/

In the evening of January 18, Friday, while I was in bed I saw something like logs. Then as if looking into a 3D image that a picture comes into focus as the eyes get through the pattern, I saw that the logs were floating and the image of the flood came into focus. The flood looked threatening. I told my son that there might be flooding in this country again. Last night the media reported of the massive flooding in Davao City and nearby areas.

http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/343695/1-missing-8000-flee-from-floods-in-davao-del-norte

The world is going to experience a tremendous shaking. Obama’s inauguration is spiritually highly significant for it marks the beginning of the end of the present order of life not only for America but for the rest of the world. Each nation has her sins to account for before the Father. My country’s religious idolatry is so sickening. The succession of calamities is not coincidence but my countrymen are sadly not getting it. The Church needs to bend her knees and seek the Lord’s anointing to reach out to the lost. It cannot be done by human ingenuity no matter how well-planned. Only by His Spirit can we bring down the strongholds of the evil one.

Warning, warning, warning! A warning for the Church! I will Remove Your Lampstand!

 

The title of this article is exactly the very stern warning message I heard around 12:00 noon today when I tried to nap after being awake from around 3:00 a.m. The message got my full attention that I decided to just not sleep at all. This message is found in the Book of Revelations.

Revelation 2:5

Therefore, remember where you were before you fell, turn from this sin, and do what you used to do before. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your menorah (lampstand) from its place – if you don’t turn away from your sin!

The Menorah

Since I published the previous article which focused on the lukewarm Church of Laodicea, the Lord continued to show and gave me words about the Church’s spiritual condition.

Earlier today, around 5:30 in the morning, I also attempted to nap after preparing for the children’s needs for school but while drowsing half asleep on the sofa I heard, “Persist on your Ezequiel calling;”  and while pondering what that meant I heard “… and Habakkuk too!” As I was asking what He really meant, I saw a man and a boy in a lewd scene. It was very lewd that I don’t want to describe what I really saw. I knew that the man is a professed Christian.

Persist is a very strong word. Google defines it as “Continue firmly or obstinately in an opinion or a course of action in spite of difficulty, opposition, or failure.”

Merriam Webster Online Dictionary says “to go on resolutely or stubbornly in spite of opposition, importunity, or warning; to be insistent in the repetition or pressing of an utterance (as a question or an opinion).”

In the context of the vision, what was impressed to me as to the Ezequiel calling is this:

Ezequiel 33:7

Likewise you, human being – I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Israel. Therefore, when you hear the word from my mouth, warn them for me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you repsonsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked person to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life.

As to the Habakkuk calling, this is what the Holy Spirit impressed to me:

Habakkuk 2: 1-3

I will stand at my watchpost; I will station myself on the rampart. I will look to see what God will say through me and what I will answer when I am reproved.

Then Adonai answered me; He said, “Write down the vision clearly on tablets, so that even a runner can read it. For the vision is meant for its appointed time; it speaks of the end and it does not lie. It may take a while, but wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay.

So then I must continue to watch, write and warn as the Lord leads!

Going back to the vision of the man and the boy, the Lord just showed me one concrete example of the message He gave me early in the morning yesterday while I was still in bed. He said referring to the Church, “I am exposing your shame.”

This message was similarly spoken by the Lord through the Prophet Jeremiah regarding Judah and Jerusalem, when the people continued in their sins. In Jeremiah 13: 10 the Lord says: “I will ruin this evil people, who refuse to hear my words and live according to their own stubborn inclinations, who go after other gods to serve and worship them.”

In verse 26, the Lord declared: “I myself will lift your skirts above your face, and your privates will be exposed.”

The Lord also uttered the message through Prophet Isaiah regarding Babylon.

Isaiah 47:1-3

“Come down, and sit in the dust, you virgin daughter of Bavel! Sit on the ground, not on a throne, daughter of the Kasdim! No longer are you to be called dainty and delicate. Take the millstones and grind meal; take off your veil, strip off your skirt, uncover your legs, wade through the streams. Your private parts will be exposed; yes, your shame will be seen. I am going to take vengeance, and no one will stand in my way.”

The night before I heard the word of the Lord, I prayed and asked Him for insight to the question of one reader of this blog who emailed me this:

“I have been reading your blog for a while, and I have a question. I have prayed for about 30 years for the United States. I have felt that our country has deserved judgement because of abortion, but instead, God has withheld His hand for a long time. I believe that the increase in homosexuality is a sign from God that He has been in the process of turning away from a nation due to its sins. Stating that what God says is evil is ‘good’ is also a sign of our sinful condition. My question is in regards to the cover ups of child molestations that have occurred in various institutions, including evangelical Bible believing churches. It seems to me that this particular evil is being uncovered everywhere. When this occurs in the church, the harm to children is magnified, including their relationship with Jesus. Is it right to take churches to court when they have participated in covering up child molestations by members? Why would God allow little children to be molested and raped by Christians? Can a person be a Christian and commit such a detestable act?”

As I heard that message, I knew that the Lord was referring to this particular question raised by this sister. So, the Lord will certainly expose the immoral acts of the professing Christians and churches such as shown in the vision mentioned above. If they need to be dragged in court, then the Lord will drag them to court.

Every immoral act and immoral relationship within the ‘church’ will be exposed. The Lord is in the process of shaking the so-called “Christian Church” violently to expose her immorality. Judgment on the nation begins in the household of God.

As I continued praying about it, the Lord further said that these people (so-called Christians) have no right associating themselves with God’s holy name and any reference to Him like “Christian.” It is utter misuse of His name which God condemns as using His name in vain.

For those who molest and abuse children and cause them to sin, remember the word of the Lord:

Mark 9:42

Whoever ensnares one of these little ones who trust me – it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and be thrown in the sea.

Matthew 18:5-7

Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me; and whoever ensnares one of these little ones who trust me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the open sea! Woe to the world because of snares! For there must be snares, but woe to the person who sets the snare!

Again, to the lukewarm Church of Laodicea, repent of your sins! The Lord Yeshua is saying:

“My advice to you is to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be dressed and not have to be ashamed of your nakedness.; an eyesalve to rub on your eyes so that you may see. As for me, I rebuke and discipline everyone I love; so exert yourselves and turn from your sins! Here I am, standing at the door knocking…” Rev. 3:18-20

Repent lest Yahweh will remove your lampstand!

Love in King Yeshua,

Cynthia

A Message for the Church: Are You Ready to Die a Martyr’s Death?

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - The F...

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) – The Flagellation of Our Lord Jesus Christ (1880) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This article is not meant to scare you but to let you think hard and consider the option of dying a martyr’s death if “rapture” doesn’t come before or during the great tribulation. I do not mean to argue with anyone on the timing of the event which the Christians are holding on to in the hope of escaping the severe persecution that is coming to the Body of Christ. The purpose of this article is to call for preparation, not by hoarding food and supplies, but preparation of the heart, mind and spirit that we may be able to stand in our faith and not renounce our Lord and Messiah Yeshua when faced with death by whatever means, even death by the sword, gallows or guillotine.

Since the Lord opened my spiritual senses and gave me revelations of the end-time events unfolding in our time, I have never received anything about the Church’ popular hope and belief which is the rapture. If the awaited rapture will take place before the tribulation, that’s something we all greatly welcome; but what if it doesn’t happen? Have you ever considered the possibility of it not coming to pass and instead, be martyred for the faith you so profess today? Rapture of the “True Church” may come, but the word of the Lord in the Book of Revelations is also clear that there are those who will die for proclaiming the Word of God.

Revelation 6:9-11 (CJB)

When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been put to death for proclaiming the Word of God, that is, for bearing witness. They cried out in a loud voice, “Sovereign Ruler, HaKadosh, the True One, how long will it be before you judge the people living on earth and avenge our blood?” Each of them was given a white robe; and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow-servants should be reached, of their brothers who would be killed, just as they had been.

Revelation 7:13-14 (CJB)

One of the elders asked me, “These people dressed in white robes- who are they, and where are they from?” “Sir,” I answered, “you know.” Then he told me, “These are the people who have come out of the Great Persecution. They have washed their robes and made them white with the blood of the Lamb.

Did it ever occur to you that you could be one of those who will die a martyr’s death for the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach? Did you ever consider going through such Great Persecution and persevere?

Since the very vivid dream I had last year of me and my family marching our way to the guillotine, the feeling didn’t leave me that it may, in the near future, take place. For the past few weeks, this feeling has been coming strongly over and over especially when I read a piece of document talking about “extremism.” I believe all the more that the Great Persecution is already at the doorsteps. Everyone who speaks against wickedness and calls sin “SIN” is, to the world, an extremist. The world we live in has turned upside down. Standing for righteousness and holiness in God’s standard and perspective is labeled as “right-wing extremism.”  Standing against abortion and other (im)moral issues is extremism and put one in the checklist of those whom the authorities are closely watching. Where does all this lead the ‘True Church’ which means the real, genuine Christians standing for the one true God and all that He has taught us? Are we not all candidates for persecution even unto death? The complacent, apathetic and compromising believers might be safe for now, but where will that lead them if they don’t make their stand?

The Lord’s message for the Church still rings:

“I will visit the Church and shake her with violent shaking to separate those who are truly Mine from those who are not. I will wake up the believers before pouring out My wrath upon the land. I will cause my children to arise and speak up boldly against all the wickedness in the land; I will pour out my grace through men and women who hear Me, to call people to repentance while there is time. Those who will hear and repent will be saved but those who harden their hearts will certainly perish!”

Christians who are still asleep and comfortable, beware! Don’t wait for the Lord to shake you violently to wake you up. The days ahead are not getting any better and brighter as most often proclaimed in the pulpits. We are in the days of trouble not favor in view of the world. The favor of the Lord will not leave us as we truly abide in Him; for His favor is His glory that surrounds us like a shield; but it does not make us comfortable in this world. The favor of the Lord instead will make us more undesirable to the world, more unpalatable as His glory shines in us and through us, in direct contrast to all the evil that so filled the world and held it captive unto satan, the devil. Make up your mind and make your stand. Train yourself and be ready unto battle. Warfare is what we face each day. Be rather persecuted by the world for doing what is right, standing in holiness for the coming of the bridegroom, than wounded by the Lord for doing wrong, living as the rest of the world lives.

Will you cooperate with the Lord or resist Him and be caught unprepared? Are you willing to lay down your life for Him in the coming tribulation? Then start laying down your life today by giving Him full control, allowing Him to lead you and direct you in everything. Yield to the Lord Jesus, cling, abide, and hold on to the anchor of your soul.

Again, brothers and sisters, are you willing to be one of those martyrs in the Book of Revelations? Are you ready to die a martyr’s death for our Lord and King Messiah Yeshua, Jesus Christ? If you’re scared, here’s what our Savior says:

Don’t fear those who kill the body but are powerless to kill the soul. Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in Gei-Hinnom (hell). Matthew 10:28 (CJB).

Much love in Christ,

Cynthia

Why Stand with Israel

This article below is written by Jack Hayford, co-founder of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem (DPPJ).

As this year’s DPPJ is but a few days away, I encourage you to read this important article on why we, as Christians, need to pray for and stand with Israel. More than political, this is one most crucial Scriptural and Spiritual issue. If you love God, you must know the heart of God not only for yourself and your Church but for Israel through whom He chose to reveal His plans and purposes for the whole human race. Our identity as believers, our purpose and calling revolve around the will of Him who created all things and all peoples.

Why-Stand-with-Israel

By Jack Hayford

Israel is a land about which G-d says – uniquely, prophetically, redemptively, and repeatedly in the Bible – “This is Mine.” G-d refers to Israel as He does to no other land on Earth. Israel was raised up to be a light to the Gentiles.

The Church at its inception was virtually entirely Jewish, and it remained so until the Gospel began to spread. Ultimately, the Gospel spread to Antioch – where the first Gentile congregation began – the base from which the Gospel spread into all the world.

In the book of Romans, chapters 9 through 11, the Apostle Paul deals with the question of the Jews in G-d’s providence and purpose. These three chapters virtually stand alone, within the whole of the Bible, as an elaboration of the theology of G-d’s dealing with Jews. The Jews were the “first fruit” … the “first people” (through Abraham) to understand a covenant G-d. They then relayed the riches of that truth to the world, and through their agency, the Messiah came into the world. The Word of G-d calls Jews the “root” and Gentiles the “branches.” We’re reminded that while “because of unbelief, some of them were broken off and you stand by faith,” we are not to become haughty but to fear: “For if G-d did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.” When the fullness of the Gentiles is completed, “all Israel will be saved.” (ch. 11:16-27)

We are living in a sobering moment in history that calls us, as believers in Jesus Christ, to take a stand with Israel. We could be people of the last hours. We are not to be passive in the face of prophecy; we are called to pray with passion, to intercede, and to minister according to the words of the Savior who said it is not our task to speculate when the end will be. It is our responsibility to do Kingdom business until He comes (Luke 19:13).

This is not about politics, this is about the Word of G-d… but the political ramifications are extremely dramatic. Scripture declares there will come a time when all the nations of the world will turn against Israel. It is so highly conceivable this could happen in our time that it is crucial to outline why we should stand with Israel today.

Israel at War

With all that’s happening in Israel these days, it is noteworthy to share my dream of two days ago, May 12, 2018 at around 8:20 in the morning.

I was in a house in Israel and from where I was seated at the table, I could see through the window the exchange of fire between the IDF and their enemies from across the border. The blasts were so loud and smoke and fire almost enveloped the entire horizon. Sirens sounded everywhere. It was chaos. I saw at least three private vehicles emerged one at a time from the direction of the conflict. Each was filled with bullet holes. One driver slumped just as he was able to stop the car. A man walked down the street, pushing the stroller of his baby who was hit by a bullet and was bleeding. The fighting meanwhile got louder and closer. Three wounded people ran to the house and one of them, a woman, said one lady friend whom she hugged died in her arms. I soon realized that the battle was already right where I was. A few meters away, soldiers were positioned side by side facing one direction and each holding a bomb of sorts.

I believe this is a call to pray!

 

Flying and Ministering with Lord

The Lord seems to have been flying me around to minister. My first incidence of flying with Him was in 2011. I published the dream on the “My Encounters with the Lord…” so I won’t repeat the details here.

As the flying began with the mighty rushing Wind (Holy Spirit) blowing all over me from behind, it seems that I have recognized what happened next when it (He) comes. So, when my second dream of the mighty rushing Wind happened on Sept. 28 this year, around 11:20 p.m., I knew I was about to fly with Him.

In the dream, I was praying with my missionary housemates. When I finished, heat began to flow in my hands which instantly I recognized as the Lord’s anointing. I stretched out my arms feeling the heat and I exclaimed, “Wow!” in amazement. As I was still relishing the feeling, I felt the Wind of the Lord began to blow from behind me. I stood ready to take off as I knew I was about to fly with Him. I said, “Where are we going this time, Lord?”

I began to rise from the ground as the familiar mighty rushing Wind was blowing behind and all over me. When I was a few feet up, my son held on to me. I told him to let go, that I was just flying with the Lord and that I’d be back quickly. He would not let go and that’s when I realized that he was actually waking me up. He apparently heard me moaning and was worried I was having a nightmare so he kept shaking me until I woke up. I was deeply disappointed that I could not say anything. I just went back to sleep praying the dream would continue. It did not.

I could only guess that the Lord might have wanted to bring me to Puerto Rico as I prayed fervently before going to bed that night. I was telling Him that I wanted to go as I felt really bad about Puerto Rico’s condition after Hurricane Maria battered the country. I was deeply troubled watching the news and seeing the people in desperate condition, a picture of hopelessness that I knew only a touch from the Savior could fill. I was telling Him in prayer that I wanted to bring them His good news if He would let me. I specifically prayed that if I could not possibly go physically, He would at least bring me in the spirit as He did in 2011 when He flew me to Balingasag, a small rural town in Mindanao, to pray for the need of the families there.

In the morning of November 6, 2017, I went back to bed after the children left for school. As I drifted to sleep, the Wind of the Lord began to blow and lift me up. I exclaimed, “Yes, Lord, I want to fly with You!”

This time, I was very familiar with the Wind that I quickly positioned myself and flew in confidence, unlike in the first dream of 2011. Like an eagle I soared easily with the Wind. I knew I was flying over the City of Las Piňas because I saw a billboard of the mayor, the only visible structure, on top of a hill. The land was barren with hardly any green plant but few dried grasses on the ground. I encountered spirits that I rebuked each as I passed by them. Two prominent figures were a large and dark shadow floating in the air and a priest on the ground. I said to the priest, “So, you are the one causing oppression to the people here.” I rebuked and cast out the spirit which transformed and vanished away.

I flew farther until I reached a public school. I went lower near the ground and I witnessed the busy school. Children and teachers were all around and I started praying for them. The Wind began to slow down and I knew the trip was over. I wanted to fly more but the Wind finally stopped and I was back on my bed.

What I learned from this dream is that our city, Las Piňas, is spiritually barren in spite of the presence of several Christian churches here. Catholic schools also abound, in fact, my son goes to a Catholic university. But I also know that the Lord wants to reach out to the people in this place. This was revealed to me in a vision on October 30, a week before He flew me over the city.

In the morning of October 30 while I was praying, I saw students (boys and girls) of the Catholic University where my son is enrolled. They wore the same uniforms as my son and his classmates so I knew they were Senior High school kids. I didn’t bother at first until I saw them again a second and third time. I paused and asked the Lord what the vision meant and He said that He was going to reach out to the students and save them; that these students will be the way for their homes to be saved as well; that He will use the youth of the church where my son is a keyboard player. I then saw the Youth leader and prayed for her as the Lord further impressed to me that He has anointed her for the campus ministry.

I shared the vision with the youth leader and she confirmed that the Lord has been speaking to her about the campus ministry particularly in said university; that she must focus on the students in that campus. She said further that I was not the first one to confirm the message to her for there has been two others who prophesied about it, and, for the past weeks, she’s been meeting new student friends from there which is obviously no coincidence.

My son, to the glory of the Father, is living out his testimony to his classmates and friends that they awarded him the “Most Holy” in the class of mostly Catholics. The awarding was for fun, created by the students themselves, as everyone received based on his/her prominent characteristic, identity so to speak.

Two days ago, December 26, I went flying with the Lord again. I thought I could minister to someone somewhere and asked Him to fly me wherever He wanted me to go. The Wind of the Lord again propelled me up, but as I went so fast and high I was scared and sought the Lord to slow down. Then as if learning to fly for the first time, I realized I could actually maneuver and adjust my speed with practice. So I did. I went over and between buildings and over a bridge. I remember passing by a slum area in Manila. I finally landed in a house beside the sea.

I talked to the lady in the house whom I knew was the mother. I told her that the Lord sent me to pray for them. She refused saying they were very busy and were about to have lunch. I turned to look at the curious teenage girls who were watching us and listening. They shyly hid their faces and I realized why. They were covered with acne. The mother’s face had acne scars as well.

I searched the house with my eyes and saw a guy whose face was covered with a mask that looked like an icing. He explained that he’s hiding his face because of acne. The Lord impressed to me that the family who runs a bakeshop business has a chronic problem with acne. I took the opportunity to tell them that the Lord could heal them but first they must receive Him as their Savior.

As my first flight to Balingasag, I am amazed how the Lord takes notice of people’s needs and want to help them. In the first trip I overheard a family discussing where to send their children to college as tuition fees were high. The Lord told me to intercede.

This family that suffers from chronic acne again has touched the heart of the Father. I do not know them and I don’t know if I would even meet them in person but I know that I have to intercede for them. I believe that the Lord would heal and save them whoever and wherever they are.

This is an encouragement to all who read this message. The Lord is concerned with whatever concerns us. Nothing is too small an issue for the Lord so call on Him for He truly cares.

Psalm 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.

1 Peter 5:6-7

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

 

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Same-Sex Marriage, Storms and a Fire

Update: 37 dead in Davao Cit mall fire

Isaiah 5:20-21

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Recently, Philippine’s President Rodrigo Duterte made his controversial turn around on same sex marriage. Quoting PhilStar:

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte Sunday expressed support for same-sex marriage, reversing anew his stand on the issue, which has sparked fierce debates in other countries.

Speaking to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Davao City, Duterte said people should not be barred from pursuing things that make them happy.

“I want same-sex marriage. The problem is we’ll have to change the law. But we can change the law,” the president said, referring (to) the Family Code, which states that a marriage is between a man and a woman.

“If that is the trend of the modern times, if that will add to your happiness, I am for it. Who am
I (to stop you)? You know, kung ano ‘yung kaligayahan ng tao, ibigay ko. Bakit mo pigilan (if that makes the people happy, why stop it)? Why impose a morality that is no longer working and almost passé,” he added.

Months ago, the President said he was against same sex marriage. Quoting PhilStar again:

BANGKOK — President Rodrigo Duterte stressed on Sunday that marriage in the Philippines is between a man and a woman as he criticized supposed attempts in the west to blur the lines between males and females and impose it on other countries.

Duterte clarified that he had nothing against homosexuals but made it clear that the Philippines should not be forced to adopt the mindset of the west with regard to gender.

“Tingnan mo ‘yung (Look at) Time magazine ngayon. Wala nang (there is no more) gender because you can be a he or she,” the president said during a meeting with the Filipino community in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

“Yun ang kultura nila. Eh di kayo lang, hindi ‘yan pwede sa amin. Katoliko kami at (That’s their culture. It does not apply to us. We are Catholics and) there is the Civil Code, which says that you can only marry a woman for me… for a woman to marry a man,” he added.

The Philippines’ Senate President Aquilino (Koko) Pimentel III quickly backed up the President’s remark saying,  “The President’s pronouncements will surely start the national debate about the concept…Let the discussion on the subject begin,”…

The President didn’t know the implication of his change of heart on this issue. He and Senator Pimentel didn’t know like the rest of the unsuspecting world, that promoting or condoning this perverted view on marriage invites curse from Yahweh. I don’t find it coincidence that just about 5 days from the day PRRD announced his new stance before the LGBT in his hometown in Davao, the city got a major impact from the storm Vinta (Tembin) as it made landfall yesterday, Friday, December 22. The storm barreled through Mindanao and two of the most affected cities are Davao and Cagayan de Oro, the latter being the hometown of the good senator.

Flood Swamps Davao, Cagayan de Oro due to Vinta

It is noteworthy that Vinta followed closely Typhoon Urduja named the deadliest storm to hit the country this year, which battered large parts of Visayas and Luzon and some parts of Mindanao. Practically, the entire nation is affected by the storms.

Urduja damage breaches P1 billion- NDRRMC

While Davao is still reeling from the storm, NCCC Mall, one of the city’s largest malls caught fire earlier today, around 9:30 a.m. As of this writing, here is the latest:

(UPDATED) The New City Commercial Center (NCCC) Mall in Maa, Davao City is still engulfed in flames as of 7 p.m., Saturday, December 23.

It’s sad to see this happening in my country though I knew this same-sex marriage issue was coming as the Lord already showed me back in 2012 which I kept re-posting on this blog. This evil is sweeping the world so fast that it’s admittedly difficult to stop. Ignorance of His Word and rejection of the Truth are the reasons why people are easily swayed to accept this major shift in marriage views. President Duterte aptly expressed the mindset of the world that, “If this is the trend of the modern times… I am for it. If that makes people happy, why stop it? Why impose a morality that is no longer working and almost passé?”

Unfortunately, such thinking is nothing new. The same wickedness filled the earth in Noah’s time and was repeated in Sodom and Gomorrah. This generation is getting closer to the day of judgment as sexual perversion has returned. Swiftly, the nations are falling back into the same decadence that caused Yahweh to flood the whole earth and razed Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes.

The Lord is warning this nation, especially the Christians, through these storms and fire. We better take heed. Take seriously the word of the President, pray earnestly against it. We must pray for the Christian legislators to take their stand and oppose any attempt to change the laws on marriage and family.

I cannot, however, guarantee my fellow believers that same-sex marriage will not be legalized in this country though we pray against it because the Bible warns us about the evil days to come and how we, the people of God, will be hated and persecuted for our faith. This is what we must prepare ourselves for in the coming days.

If the Lord, in His mercy, will not allow our nation to be like the Western nations that adopted same-sex marriage, that’s something we must be truly grateful. But how are we different that the Holy One would spare this nation from falling into such an error? This is the question I would like pose to every true Christian in this nation reading this message.

 

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

 

Lesson Learned

 I met a sister in Christ yesterday during a small group meeting (there were only 4 of us). As I haven’t been in Church for a while, hibernating for personal reasons, the two younger ladies and I met for the first time. One is in a very difficult moment in her life. Though her story is different, I could well identify with her as I went through similar instances in my Christian journey. I say instances because I realized that I went through different heartbreaking situations three times in the past. It is in the third experience that I learned my lesson and became who I am now in Christ.

To suffer from feelings of rejection and abandonment with the nagging feelings of guilt and condemnation is never easy. As I spoke to the younger woman who listened intently, I could see her eyes on the verge of tears every time a word hit home. I could see myself in her. I was in her shoes and so I knew what it felt like when someone spoke a word of hope no matter how simple. I remember well how a brother’s pat on my back with a simple, “How are you?” actually brought me to tears. That was over two decades ago and yet I could never forget it.

Wish I could say that after the experience I became wiser and stronger. Unfortunately, no, because if I did, then I would not have fallen into another heartache which became my worst nightmare. But praise God, I finally learned my lesson.

As I was giving advice to the young lady through text messages, I could see myself again trying to hold to the people whom the Lord brought to me to comfort me. I remember hanging on to those handful of brethren which made me feel ashamed for bothering them with my almost never-ending pity party; and this is what this young lady was telling me in her response. This then reminded me how I actually turned around to start my journey to healing. It was one simple step but looking back, that was the most significant step I made that brought me to where I am now.

I remember around 9 years ago telling the brothers and sisters who went their way to meet me for the nth time just to listen to me, that I’ve had enough; that I no longer want the devil to have his way and I didn’t want to be in the defensive anymore; that I would rise up in the Lord and face him squarely and turn the table against him.

The fight was long and hard like taking two steps forward and one step backward, but by His grace, I kept on. The issue didn’t change overnight, nor in a week or a month or even a year after, and not even today. But I have won because I have come to know and learned to fully trust the One who loves me and died for me that I am not anymore easily moved by whatever happens around me regardless of who accepts or rejects me. I found myself and value in Christ.

While the Lord truly uses people to help us through the difficult times (and He didn’t stop sending friends my way), and I am forever grateful to everyone who each played a role in the course of my healing, it is still Yahweh who ultimately delivered me from the pit.

The lesson I learned is summed up in this thought which the Lord gave me three days ago. I didn’t realize the value of the statement then when I posted it on FB but now I know.

Don’t depend on anyone for no one is absolutely dependable; don’t look for happiness in someone for everyone is bound to fail you in the long run. Stand on your own feet but make sure you are standing on the unshakable Rock, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, the eternally reliable, dependable and trustworthy God and Lord. He alone can hold you and lead you securely unto eternity.

Jeremiah 17:5-8

Thus says the Lord:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his strength,
Whose heart departs from the Lord.
For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Love and blessings in Yeshua,

Cynthia 

The Lord is Shaking the Nations

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the two most destructive natural forces that battered the US and neighboring islands, the 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico just when Irma was smashing the Caribbean have exposed many people’s thoughts. Even Christians are divided. Some are saying these are judgments from God while others do not really think they are. I am sharing here not what I think it is, but what I heard and received from the Lord.

In the morning of August 14, 2017, while I was praying and taking communion, I had a vision. I saw the world shaking. Then I saw Captain America in a similar heroic pose below, and heard, “Here’s Captain America, but America can’t save the world.”

Marvel

The world is being shaken, and America, the world’s known savior, cannot save it as she is also being shaken. My vision was on August 14, the solar eclipse was on the 21st, Harvey hit Texas on the 25th and Irma hit Florida on Sunday,  September 10. Heaven is calling the world’s attention. If you are not convinced here’s what I heard and received from the Lord in 2011 in a powerful dream.

On March 6, 2011, the Lord came to me while I was in bed around 2:30 am. He put something in my hands. I asked, “What’s this, Lord?” He said, “Rod.”  I said in excitement, “I want to see and feel it.”  I saw and felt the rod. It was a foot long, like a T but the horizontal bar was barely thicker than the rod itself, luminous and very smooth. I said, “If this is real, I want to try it, Lord.” So, I tilted the cover of the lampshade with the tip of the rod and it tilted.

Then I saw before me a wide screen with a slideshow. As each image appeared I asked, “What’s that, Lord?” The Lord said, “Watch, the vision will surely come to pass.”

What I saw were scenes of chaos though I could not figure out what caused them. I also saw a man in one of those chaotic background. He looked dead but then rose up as if he just slept. Then I saw a bride.

Then my attention was drawn back to the rod, because, surprisingly and amazingly, my right hand was shaking it involuntarily and beating my left hand. I exclaimed, “Wow, what’s this?” The Lord said, “I am shaking the nations with my rod.”  Then I asked, “What shall I do with the rod, Lord?” The Lord answered, “Put it in your pocket.” I said, “How?” He said, “Just do it.” I obeyed; amazingly, the rod coiled in my hand. I woke up as soon as I put it in my pocket.

The shaking of the nations began, at least for me, shortly after the encounter when the 9 magnitude earthquake with gigantic tsunamis struck and destroyed lives and properties in Japan. The Arab Spring also began in 2011 and we all know that Syria is still in war to this day. Hundreds of thousands have been killed in the on-going battle and multitudes have been displaced creating a refugee crisis that adversely affected much of the western world. Terrorism has since increased in an unimaginable violence especially in the wake of ISIS.

The shaking of nations has not stopped. The Philippines has had its own share of the shaking. To mention a few major events, two destructive earthquakes happened respectively in 2012 in Negros Oriental and in 2013 in Bohol. The worst typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) also happened in 2013, barely a month after the 7.2 magnitude Bohol earthquake. Zamboanga City was attacked in September of 2013 by Islamic forces wanting to take over the city, and, today, Marawi City is still in rubble since the ISIS affiliated Maute terrorists tried to overthrow the place to make it their new hub.

As I am writing this some parts of Metro Manila and nearby are flooded due to Tropical Depression Maring. Here are some of the headlines:

Maring Makes Landfall.., Threatens Metro Manila

13 Missing in Flooded Calamba City

Dramatic Rescue… Bus Swamped by Floods

Teen Brothers Buried in Landslide

I heard fellow Christians say it is cruel to speak about judgment when people are suffering. But such a view downplays the fact that Yahweh in His righteousness and mercy want people to repent and submit to His ways. But how can we repent when we don’t see our need to do so? And how can we see the need to humble and repent and turn from our wicked ways when all we want to see is a loving God incapable of disciplining us with life-shattering circumstances? Yahweh is slow to anger and abounding in love and does not want anyone to perish. But we must not forget that even His chosen people Israel were not spared when their rebellion and wickedness reached beyond tolerance. He is sovereign and in full control no matter what men do or think.

I pray that Yahweh’s children will have the courage to speak the truth- that the world lies in wickedness that warrants the intervention of a holy God. He is speaking loud and clear, calling people to repent and turn to Him. Let us not stand in the way by trying to sooth them with less than the hard truth when He is trying to get their attention. Heartbreaking as it is, it is truly a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Psalm 2

Why are the nations in an uproar,
the peoples grumbling in vain?
The earth’s kings are taking positions,
leaders conspiring together,
against Adonai
and his anointed.
They cry, “Let’s break their fetters!
Let’s throw off their chains!”

He who sits in heaven laughs;
Adonai looks at them in derision.
Then in his anger he rebukes them,
terrifies them in his fury.
“I myself have installed my king
on Tziyon, my holy mountain.”

“I will proclaim the decree:
Adonai said to me,
‘You are my son;
today I became your father.
Ask of me, and I will make
the nations your inheritance;
the whole wide world
will be your possession.
You will break them with an iron rod,
shatter them like a clay pot.’”

10 Therefore, kings, be wise;
be warned, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve Adonai with fear;
rejoice, but with trembling.
12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry,
and you perish along the way,
when suddenly his anger blazes.
How blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Repent now and be saved.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is There yet Hope for America?

I wish the answer is YES. But unfortunately, as much as I want to say YES, that is not what I received from the Lord during my prayer of intercession this morning.

Being a watchman is not easy. Being able to see what others do not is never a pleasure. It is fraught with agony as you know what lies ahead and beyond yet you know that there is not much that you can do to change the situation; for with one whose spiritual eyes and ears are open the danger is clear, and with that, the responsibility to warn becomes as enormous as its reality. Then comes the more unpleasant reality- those you are warning are not listening or they refuse to listen because they believe in what they see differently. They will call you a “doom and gloom” prophet, a “killjoy” or just someone who cannot see anything good. But I know my calling and responsibility and so I will speak of what I see and hear regardless of the outcome.

In my time with the Lord this morning I sought Him once again how I should pray for America, what I should tell those who believe that America will be great again. I sought Yahweh for even my own kin and people are still caught up in the great American dream. I inquired of Him if I were only being pessimistic for feeling that America will keep on its path to judgment and not rise again as many believe otherwise.

I believe in His mercy and compassion. I believe He is full of grace and loving kindness. I believe that He answers the prayers of the righteous. I believe that He is able to direct the hearts of kings. I believe about standing in the gap that He should not destroy the land. I believe He does not take pleasure in the death of a sinner but would rather have the sinner turn to Him. I believe He is patient because He does not want anyone to perish. But I am aware of what happened to Israel in spite of Jeremiah’s pleading and lamenting in behalf of the nation. I am aware that he interceded and prayed importunately for his people. I am aware how seriously he went about calling for repentance, warning the leaders and ordinary folks of Yahweh’s judgment if they would not return to Him, if they continue in sin and lawlessness. I am aware he boldly rebuked the kings and the people yet wept before Yahweh in their behalf. And yes, I am also aware of Yahweh’s answer to this faithful prophet. It is in this context that I again earnestly sought the Father’s heart for America.

Then, I knew He was telling me to go over the writings of Jeremiah so, I said, “Yes, I will read again the Book of Jeremiah.”

Prayer to me is never boring because He is responding and I have learned to recognize His voice in my spirit. But to make sure I heard Him right, I seek Him for a word of confirmation from His Word, the Scriptures. This is what I did after praying.

So, I opened my Bible and Jeremiah’s prayer and Yahweh’s answer stood out to me. This is the sobering confirmation:

Jeremiah 14:19-22; 15:1-2

19 Have you rejected Y’hudah completely?
Is Tziyon loathsome to you?
Why have you struck us irreparably?
We looked for peace, but to no avail;
for a time of healing, but instead found terror!
20 We confess our rebellion, Adonai,
also the crimes of our ancestors;
yes, we have sinned against you.
21 For your name’s sake, do not spurn us;
do not dishonor your glorious throne.
Remember your covenant with us;
do not break it.
22 Among the nations’ idols,
can any make it rain?
Can the skies, of themselves,
send showers?
Aren’t you the one,
Adonai, our God?
Don’t we look to you?
For you do all these things.

Then Adonai said to me, “Even if Moshe and Sh’mu’el were standing in front of me, my heart would not turn toward this people! Drive them out of my sight, get them out of here! And when they ask you where they should go, tell them that this is what Adonai says:

‘Those destined for death — to death!
Those destined for the sword — to the sword!
Those destined for famine — to famine!
Those destined for captivity — to captivity!’

Reading those words literally gripped me that I fell silent for a moment. This is the same answer He gave me in the past, at least two times, for the same question which is the title of this article. Nothing has changed. Yahweh has not changed His mind. In spite of the change in leadership, America has not given Him reason to change His mind.

Jeremiah 18:7-10

At one time, I may speak about uprooting, breaking down and destroying a nation or kingdom; but if that nation turns from their evil, which prompted me to speak against it, then I relent concerning the disaster I had planned to inflict on it. Similarly, at another time, I may speak about building and planting a nation or kingdom; 10 but if it behaves wickedly from my perspective and doesn’t listen to what I say, then I change my mind and don’t do the good I said I would do that would have helped it.

When the US Supreme Court in 2015 ruled in favor of same sex marriage, I asked Yahweh, “What do you say now, Lord? What is your message to this people?”

The answer He gave me is Jeremiah 14:10. You may read the article here:

The Father’s Response to the US Supreme Court Ruling that Gay Marriage is a Right

Is there yet hope for America? Will America be great again? His answer is found in those words in Jeremiah 18:7-10 and 2 Chronicles 7:14

14 then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.

If Yahweh sees the kind of repentance that Nineveh did after Jonah’s warning, America will certainly recover. But will the nation repent as Nineveh did in Jonah’s time? I wish I can give a positive answer but the answer He gave me when I asked that question in 2012 is this one word, “Nahum.”

Nahum was the prophet who was sent to Nineveh after about 100 years of Jonah’s warning and the people repenting. This time Nineveh did not repent and so the nation was destroyed. See also this article by Joel Rosenberg:

Is America Facing a “Jonah” Moment or, a “Nahum” Moment?

Is there hope for America? I believe that as a nation her fate is sealed. But as I keep telling everyone, those who listen and repent and turn to Him will certainly be saved. Noah and his family, Lot and his family were spared when judgment fell upon their generation. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Seek Adonai while he is available,
call on him while he is still nearby.
Let the wicked person abandon his way
and the evil person his thoughts;
let him return to Adonai,
and he will have mercy on him;
let him return to our God,
for he will freely forgive.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia
