Test the World’s Spirits

“Dear friends, don’t trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. Here is how you recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges that Yeshua the Messiah came as a human being is from God, and every spirit which does not acknowledge Yeshua is not from God — in fact, this is the spirit of the Anti-Messiah. You have heard that he is coming. Well, he’s here now, in the world already!” (1 John 4:1-3).

I am living in an RV park in Las Vegas with a lot of retirees.  As I lay in bed this a.m. some people were walking by and talking very loudly about how they no longer believe what is being told them about the virus because the numbers don’t add up. I couldn’t believe my ears.  We’re not the only ones who discuss this? 

I graduated from high school in 1976. Our class was known as the Bi-Centennial Senior Class – 200 years of America.  But over the past 44 years, I’ve watched a country that I have loved, felt safe in and wanted my children to have that  ‘American Dream,’ decay into a place I no longer recognize. I doubt my children will see their dreams to the fullest as they will either be taking care of the world through incredible taxation or being taken care of by a global financial entity promising them utopia. Will my grandchildren grow up wearing masks thinking this is how it always was because of Los Angeles and now, Colorado? As we begin to look like China, will we become China?

My son, a health care provider,  told me TB has the same symptoms and is as contagious as this ‘novel’ coronovirus.  Fifteen hundred (1500) people die everyday from TB and the country never locks down to destroy its growing strong economy.

I’m tired of knowing that a government that I once trusted, I no longer do.  I just don’t.  You can if you want.   You can watch your retirement investments go down, down, down.  You can take your bailout money and watch inflation go high, high, high.  Where are they getting $2 trillion? The amount adds $60,000 per person in taxes?

You can watch politicians like the King and Queen of Evil continue to babble mindlessly on the left; you can continue to support those on the right who were elected and are trying to do the best they can in this moment.  You can believe there’s a virus that at some point is going to kill millions or will go away and life will continue on.   I just don’t believe the rhetoric from either side any more. I’m sorry there are people dying, but people die everyday from so many different things that the focus of this virus reveals a deeper sickness.

There is no test for this virus so who knows what numbers are accurate?  And, if there is a test, how was it made so fast? From what I understand, they are only testing for pneumonia. Pneumonia.  A good  friend in the medical field told me there is evidence that whatever tests they are doing in the UK were giving the virus to the people.  Fresh, clean infected tests!  Now, the Chinese want to send us masks because they can make them so fast.   

There are other factors like putting Pentagon commanders in NORAD at Cheyenne Mountain, in Colorado Springs for a virus?  That bunker was made for nuclear war! Watching Chinese videos showing that you need to QCode yourself safe in order to enter a business or restaurant? A nice tracking system in place, don’t ya think? How did that happen so fast?  How did every business, restaurant and museum in China get a QCode so quickly? I’ve read articles from other countries that know China created a warfare virus, but that truth is covered up.  Wuhan, China is the ‘ground zero’ for biowarfare for the world.  Look it up.  The facts are there.  

I saw a meme the other day that mocked anti-vaxers with something like, ‘Now you know!’  Now we know what?  The global community needs to be injected with some patented viral antidote for a patented virus in order to stay healthy or in order to always be sick? My understanding is that those with immune system weaknesses or other health issues are at risk. Don’t you think that all of the pharmaceuticals that people take on a daily basis affect their immune system and put their health more at risk? Drugs to control bodily functions is not health. Don’t be deceived.

I am healthy.  No symptoms, no signs and I went through the Seattle Airport to get here.  After talking to several health care professionals, it is highly probable that my daughter had the virus in January and passed it to all of us – dry cough, sore throat, high fever, exhaustion. I may already have the antibodies; I don’t need a test or a vaccine.  I don’t need to prove to anyone that I am healthy or sick.  It’s my body!  Isn’t it?  Or is that just a catch phrase for when one wants to murder a child?

For the record, I would rather die than be injected with whatever will be in any vaccine.  I don’t eat ‘unclean’ meats like pork or bat or monkey or bears or whatever is sold in wet markets in China. I don’t want to be injected with their DNA/RNA in order to have ‘immunity.’ Research Bill Gates, the vaccine guru, and what he is wanting to do with vaccines.  He’s only focused on Africa because they are tribal nations and harder to get into his collective global community.

There is a theory touted ‘conspiracy’ being circulated about QAnon, the deep state, and the cabal. It’s an interesting theory about bad vs. evil because it touts that the ‘swamp’ is truly going to be drained from ‘evil’ men by ‘bad’ men. The whole concept while sounding like a wonderful way to rid the world of evil is a humanistic approach to cutting down the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil vs. actually eating from the Tree of Life. The false utopia will be brought in by men, not by God, not by Yeshua. There are aspects of the QAnon theory that would be nice with regard to destroying corrupt people in high places. For me, only if I see the King and Queen of political corruption brought down could I even begin to believe the far-reaching somewhat over-the-top claims of this theory.

5G.  Research it yourself.  Worse than the band width is the surveillance that it involves – and components were developed in China.  Belgium refused it because it wanted nothing from China.  Maybe we should have learned from them or India! Or even Taiwan who didn’t listen to anything China had to say about the virus and they’re just fine. Let’s stop dealing with China. My uncle said in the 1960s after being a Marine during the Korean War that the US would become Communist without ever firing a bullet.  It would implode from the inside out. It seems he was prophetic.  

I don’t watch Glen Beck, but he’s spot on with this video.  Grunt and roll your eyes all you who are more political than American, more Democracy oriented than Constitutional Republic, but he’s not lying.  He is telling the truth.  I remember reading in a newspaper in Rio de Janeiro ten years ago about losing our fourth amendment rights for privacy.  A foreign newspaper reported how the Patriot Act took away an American right.  I never heard it from anyone else except for men like Glen Beck who are judged as conspiracy theorists or fear mongers.   Remember it’s only conspiracy if it’s not true. Remember it’s fear that is being played on the American people right now from the media and government and not from radio talk show hosts.

Even now the right to free speech is infringed upon by those who don’t agree with what is being spoken or written. That’s why Facebook and the like remove posts and put people into ‘jail.’ The second amendment is being chipped away because of the fear mongering of those who don’t want to own firearms. Well, don’t own firearms, but don’t take away the right of an American to own firearms. Ironically, we watched the movie “Contagion” the other evening and leftist Matt Damon steals a weapon from his neighbor’s house to protect his own. Way to go, Matt! Steal!

The right to freedom of religion is being tested with the social distancing and gatherings of no more than ten people. Some say they are doing it to protect people; others see it as an infringement on their right to gather. Anti-religion people think it’s the best thing since pulled pork. Those of faith discuss the differences happening between Islam and Christianity and what is allowed for one isn’t allowed for the other. There are those who say people of faith must abide by the laws of the land until they must break God’s laws, but then wasn’t the law of the land originally based on Constitutional Rights?

The right to a speedy trial is now being discussed so that anyone can be taken hostage and held for as long as ‘the powers that be’ deem necessary and you won’t have access to a lawyer or trial. We will lost due process with the possibility of being ‘put in captivity’ for a very long time even if we’re innocent. Don’t we all have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Remember when the scanners were opened in airports and there was such a backlash? Now everyone does it because they just do. Except me. I still don’t go through them, haven’t even one time. Why? Because I want to exercise my liberties as long as possible.

Ben Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” He was right then and he’s right now.  Which do you prefer as an American? Safety or Liberty? Even Patrick Henry understood the difference, “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Today we have some leaders who tell us ‘everything will go back to normal.’  It won’t.  It won’t because no one will actually stand up to the government and say ‘enough.’  First it was 14 days, now it’s 30 days, soon it will be months (and ended up nearly 3 years). When is enough, enough? As each of our liberties is chipped away, people become more thankful with the belief they are more safe than before. It’s a smoke screen for being controlled like communism. With the release of stimulus checks and the possibility of government bailouts of small businesses, we skipped socialism all together!

There are false prophets.  Yeshua warned about false prophets and not to follow them or believe their prophecies.  Before the destruction of Jerusalem, the false prophets said ‘everything would be all right.’  God said through His prophets that Jerusalem would be destroyed and the people taken into captivity.  Which happened?

I do study Biblical prophecy and whether or not we are living in some of the Revelation seals, trumpets or bowls, I won’t say and be labeled a  ‘false prophet.’  I do, however, see the framework for much that John saw in Revelation coming to pass, especially a global system without borders and the ‘mark of the beast.’ No one actually knows what it will be until is is required to buy and sell. But if it comes to having a QCode or you are required to have a vaccine that is branded on your arm, what will your choice be?

“First, understand this: during the Last Days, scoffers will come, following their own desires and asking, “Where is this promised ‘coming’ of his? For our fathers have died, and everything goes on just as it has since the beginning of creation” (2 Peter 3:3-4). 

Everything is not going to go on as it has since the beginning.  There will come a time of distress such that has never come upon the world.  All three major world religions know and teach this – Judaism, Islam and Christianity.   For those who would say this kind of  ‘stuff has happened forever’ never consider that Israel is the center of God’s plan, not the United States of America or even China.  Before our generation, there was no Israel.  There was no timepiece for any fulfillment of prophecies that we are witnessing today because they all revolve around Israel. Why do you think that tiny little nation receives such negative reactions from the world? We do live in prophetic times. 

Scoffers will scoff. They will mock those who choose a different path – swimming upstream like a salmon. Scoffers will go with the flow and do whatever they are told to do because to them everything else is a conspiracy.  They will take whatever mark is given to them because they have put their faith in the wrong god – the government, the system of the ‘beast’ that is now ‘stirring up the sea.’

I am not a scoffer. I believe what the Bible says about everything from the origin of life to death resulting from sin to repentance from sin for forgiveness to even to the judgment of the righteous and the wicked.   I believe in a coming Jewish King named Yeshua and his earthly reign for that Kingdom for one thousand years from Jerusalem. You want to live 1000 years? Well, don’t put your faith in adrenochrome; put it in Yeshua.

I also believe in a spiritual realm that is unseen. I walk by faith in that realm with glimpses into that realm when my spiritual eyes are opened.   Though I can view what is happening in this present world with a virus and how it will change not only this country, but the world, I know the Creator. I know He has a plan and He is in control.  I know the changes that are happening, however painful, will bring in the Messianic Era that leads to Eternity. Yeshua called these pains birthpangs and, having gone through childbirth naturally four times, they will only get stronger and closer together. The final event, coming out of the womb through the birth canal, is the hardest work with the greatest reward.

Still, what does that mean for me now? What am I to be doing? Apart from being informed, I am to ‘occupy’ until Messiah comes. If I am to die by the sword, I will die. If I am to be taken captive, I will be taken captive. In all scenarios, my faith and what I know is coming doesn’t change. I will witness with my death; I will witness in captivity; I will ‘occupy’ until Yeshua shows up with blood on his hands from the enemies of his people.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who change darkness into light and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

To really know what is going to happen next, no one can be positive until it comes to pass. That is why we need to be prepared – not just physically with toilet paper and flour, but spiritually in our hearts and minds. The message of the gospel is not just about the love of God and the death of Yeshua, it’s about nations repenting and turning away from ungodliness and evil. That will be difficult in today’s global climate of abominations of life and lifestyle being accepted as normal and even good. It is not easy, nor will it be easy for those who stand for righteousness to even be counted as worthy in this world any longer. Like the man from ‘My Pillow,’ those who are worthy of the Kingdom of God will be mocked and judged rather than heeded. Many righteous will perish. MANY.

I am living in an RV park in Las Vegas with a lot of retirees.  Apparently we’re not the only ones who discuss the discrepancies between what is seen and what we’re being told. I hope those who read this become informed people and stop being sheeple believing everything they hear, but I also pray that those who read this have prepared themselves spiritually for what lies ahead. If not, it’s time to open your Bible and know the Truth so you can be set free.

Come Messiah. Bo Yeshua.

What does it profit a man?

“What good will it do someone if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life?” (Matthew 16:26)

Thoughts on Yom Rishon, the first day of the week: What does it profit a man to know all 619 Torah commandments, but neglect the widow and the fatherless? What does it profit a man to know all the pagan roots of the holidays, but neglect the hearts and souls of the those who are lost and dying? What does it profit a man to know all the shadows and realities of the Biblical appointed times, but still judge the Jewish people who have guarded them for centuries with their lives? What does it profit a man to question everything ever written in Scripture, every prophet, every disciple, every apostle, but never actually put their faith in Yeshua who is the Word of Life? What does it profit a man to become part of the commonwealth of Israel, but never enter the Kingdom of God through the Spirit and water?

Constitutional Theocracy – The Kingdom of God

“For Yahweh is our judge, Yahweh is our lawgiver, Yahweh is our king…” (Isaiah 33:22).

“Yeshua answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. …You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again’  (John 3:5-7).

Yeshua said that we must be born ‘again’ into a Kingdom  – the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of God (John 3).     What does this Kingdom look like?  How does it compare with earthly kingdoms and kings, life, death, constitutions, health care, economics, foreign policy.

The Declaration of Independence

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18).

“Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God” (1 Peter 2:16).

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Corinthians 3:17).

“It is for freedom that Messiah has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).

The Constitution

“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed” (Deuteronomy 13:15-17).

Freedom of Religion

“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord Yahweh seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:14-16)

Freedom of Speech

“This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words” (1 Corinthians 2:13).

“Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience” (2 Corinthians 5:11).

Freedom of Assembly

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25).

The Executive Branch

The King – Yahweh

Who is he, this King of glory? The Yahweh Almighty—he is the King of glory” (Psalm 24:10).

The Commander in Chief – Yeshua

“The commander of the LORD’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy” (Joshua 5:15).

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords” (Revelation 19:11-16).

Foreign Policy

“When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. “You must be on your guard” (Mark 13:7-9).

“Then Moses said to them, “If you will do this—if you will arm yourselves before the Lord for battle, and if all of you will go armed over the Jordan before the Lord until he has driven his enemies out before him— then when the land is subdued before the Lord, you may return and be free from your obligation to the Lord and to Israel. And this land will be your possession before the Lord” (Numbers 32:20-21).

The Middle East

“Then say to Pharaoh (King of Egypt), ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn son, and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’” (Exodus 4:22-23).

“When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. For the Lord’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance. In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him” (Deuteronomy 32:8-12).

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (Genesis 12:3).

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122)

The Nations

“Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter” (Revelation 19:15).

Second Amendment

“Put your sword back in its place,” Yeshua said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:51).

Search and Seizure

“But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you” (Matthew 10:19-20).

Love your enemies (Luke 6:27).

The Legislative Branch

The Law Giver – Yahweh

“When Yahweh finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the Testimony, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God” (Exodus 31:18).

“You must obey my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am Yahweh your God. Keep my decrees and laws, for the man who obeys them will live by them. I am Yahweh” (Leviticus 18:4-5). .

“Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives or fall among the slain” (Isaiah 10:1-4).

Fear God and keep his commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

Defense of Marriage

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? (Matthew 19:4-5).

Do not separate what God has joined together (Mark 10:9).Health Care

“Praise the Lord, O my soul;  all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (Psalm 103:1-5).

Taxes 

“Show me the coin (currency) used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, “Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.  Then he said to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s” (Matthew 22:19-22).

Take care of widows and orphans (James 1:17).

Feed the hungry (Romans 12:20).

Show hospitality (3 John 1:8).

Economic Recovery

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

Right to Life

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:13-16).

Conspiracy Theories

“At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time” (Matthew 24:23-25).

Gay Rights

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:8-10).

For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a man is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Messiah and of God” (Ephesians 5:5).

Global Warming

“Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.  In fear and amazement they asked one another, ‘Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water and they obey him” (Luke 8:25).

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea” (Luke 21:25).

“He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:45).

“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, dayand night will never cease” (Genesis 8:22).

Citizenship

“All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth” (Hebrews 11:13).

“… our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Messiah Yeshua” (Philippians 3:20)

“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Messiah Yeshua himself as the chief cornerstone” (Ephesians 2:18-20).

Patriot Act

Yeshua said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest …. But now my kingdom is from another place.” “You are a king, then!” said Pilate.  Yeshua answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me” (John 18:36-37).

The Judicial Branch

The Judge – Yahweh

“He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist” (Isaiah 11:4-5).

“He will judge the world in righteousness; he will govern the peoples with justice” (Psalm 9:8).

“They will sing before Yahweh, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth (Psalm 96:3).

Love justice, show mercy and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).

Yahweh is my light and my salvation (Yeshua) — whom shall I fear?  (Psalm 27:1).
