I woke to look around me at the state of affairs in America. The President (the first of us all) has been re-elected. Sadness fell on me like a smothering blanket. As the choice of this election was between freedom or oppression, the people have chosen oppression. And I drove through the night with tears which found no eyes from which to fall. Dryness appeared where once there was a joyful spring of living water.
I was aghast at the number of our citizens who supported the liar. Those who fell for wickedness as if it were a god. Those who desire their own sin before the needs of their fellow men or even that of God. I am appalled at their lack of knowledge to divide between what is true and what is false.
Greed, pleasure, ease of life, and an unholy trust in all that is unholy has gripped them in an iron grip of death. They think they are gaining freedom. But the freedom they desire is bondage to lies, corruption, and every wicked thing man has ever devised to rebel against the Holy God who gives them life.
Then the Lord came to comfort me in my sorrow. He spoke only a few words and my soul was lit with joy. “Blood to blood”, came His words. “As it was begun in blood so shall it be sealed with blood.” These things have come to pass that those words might be fulfilled. Who is he who will render the blood of Jesus’ people? Isn’t it he who hates the very concept of the word Holy? Therefore they must appear. NOW THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS, THE GLORIOUS CHRIST OF GOD, SPROUTS TEETH!
They will revel in their perceived victory. They will marvel at the liar they now support. But this liar will turn on them with detachment. He will have no pity on those who now think they are bound to receive all good things from his hand. Their joy will turn to absolute loss of hope for the things they expected to give them life.
During their celebration the Lord is building His people into that Holy Faith which was at first. Listen to your brothers and sisters speak of the Lord with a renewed interest. The smell of putrid sin is carried on the breeze. Even into the inner rooms the whisper of horror begins to murmur. The sense of urgency is beginning to come to the sleepy minds of my family in Christ Jesus. And I am encouraged to witness this marvelous transformation begin.
When the joy of sin dissipates from the corrupt they will turn in a violent desire to know what is true and lasting. They have desired what they have gained. And when it appears to them that their desire is false, they will desire what is true.
As God’s people begin to endure persecution the “awakened” corrupt will witness my family’s plight and how they stand with courage, even joy, to receive what is dealt to them. They will ask and we will answer with the hope that is within us. Though we continue to speak of what is true and good, there will be an asking.
Many will believe and come to a living faith in the Son of God. Many will hear and believe, but when shown what they must do they will be too weak in their soul to strive with the Saints. They will turn again to all their old ways and will encourage one another to more violence against the Lord’s people. They will even vent their hatred on one another. And thus, “Blood to blood” will come to pass.
Now, my beautiful brothers and sisters of “The Way”, gather yourselves and turn away from her. She is full to overflowing with sin. And as you embrace even a slice of her ways you will embrace her sins. Judgment is coming upon the entire earth, from the sins of Cain to the present wickedness, the judgment is coming. Therefore depart from her ways. Count yourself dead to the things of this world and seek with great earnestness the strength we will need to survive in our faith at the coming persecution.
I cannot urge you beyond these words, my family in God. If we stand it will be by His strength. And make no mistake in this: He who does what is right is righteous. He who is holy is he who divides himself from all that is unholy. He who loves with the Love of God rebukes himself and makes right judgments regarding sin and righteousness.
Where does the strength to do what is righteous, holy, and pure come from? Do you not know that prayer is essential to such strength? Look at your desire to pray. Enhance it to a fire. Let the desire in you grow for a love of God’s ways. Stop looking to the world for the joy of your heart. Was not Lot’s wife turned to a pillar at such longing?
I have sought the Lord’s blessing that I might give account of what has just happened. Darkness has set over America with finality. Do not suppose there is a resurrection of what was before. A new darkness is now appearing. And it will not be taken out-of-the-way. Prepare to glorify the Lord Jesus with your dedication and even blood.
As I wrote these things, I wrote by faith. All things are of faith from first to last. Even your reception of these things will be of faith or not. But now I will recount something I think of value to all my brothers and sisters.
I appeared before the Lord to ask if there was anything false in what I wrote. “All things are come from faith among my people”, was His reply. Then I spoke before Him of our sins as a family. I confessed for us that we were taught some of our lazy approach to His Holy ways. But that even in this the Holy Word of God has been before us. We joined in the lies willingly that we might benefit from the things of this world.
Then I turned my attention to my own sin (or at least what I perceived as a sin). You see, my family, I drive truck for a living. The freight I carry is not necessity. I do not build tents to keep people sheltered. I do not produce or provide clothing or food of an essential nature. I deliver trinkets of sin this world creates so that the people of this world might cover themselves with displays of pride. And in this I find no joy.
His reply was that this is the way of man to earn a living according to where the Lord places him. This is among men and is not counted against any one of us. There are trades which are wicked and should be abandoned. But such things as are involved in the machinery of America are not counted against His people.
I mention this because I know that as we come alive in the Spirit of God such things will come to mind. As we strive to rid ourselves of every wicked thing, we will encounter that question regarding our source of employment. And with this word I strive to put at ease false accusation of our trades which the Lord Himself has granted that we inhabit. I will not have the wicked one accuse my brothers unjustly. And I will not have them suffer under lies.
By His Grace.
