THE STORM IS COMING – The days of the mark of God?

Notes 461

and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.  Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. Ezekiel 9:5-6

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. Zechariah 12:10

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. Mathew 5:4

Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” Revelation 7:2-3

 For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:17

I got into some trouble with the Lord this night for not sharing the message of this article last week. I didn’t pay much attention to how important it is to Him for this to go out when He wanted it to. So I delayed with it because I was thinking I could pray it away, but He wasn’t having it that way. So here we are. I will do as much as I can to make some sense with this writing. His words to me this night were precise and quite unusually hard. He used this message this night to make me see how important it was for me to share what He gave me last week. He said “If you are not doing the mind of God in the moment in which it was given for you to do, then you are doing the pleasure of Babylon the fornicator, who is the Mother of harlots. If you are not mourning in this time of mourning for the evils done in the house of the Lord, then you are not fit to carry the mark of God and thus you are already carrying the mark of the beast. For the saints of God and for the entire world, the contention in this season is against fornication and Babylon who is the Mother of Harlots, the one who entices people to fornicate with her by the exchange of that which is eternal for that which is temporal like Esau who was accused of fornication because he sold his birthright for food.” (See Hebrews 12:6) “The second contention is with the spirit of the anti-Christ who stands and will much more stand against the Christ in the coming days. The four winds of God will certainly blow on the earth without fail, but the mark of God will be on those who mourn for the sake of righteousness.” The picture this paints for me is that, unlike those who celebrate and rejoice in the days of Noah and Lot, which we are in right now, and as the Lord put it, they were “marrying and giving in marriage, buying and selling, building houses etc.”; these ones will be mourning instead of rejoicing, they will be those who will come out of Sodom (The system of this world) and make entry into the ark of safety (the name of the Lord, which is a strong tower), prior to the release of the four winds that will be sent against the earth.

The coming cosmic disturbance

In the introduction I mentioned my delay in releasing this message and how I was trying to pray it away. It all began with a very short vision that I didn’t want to see happen, for it was quite disturbing for me.  In that vision that appeared to me multiple times over the course of a few days, I was in outer space watching the Milky Way and our solar system and how they move and interact in a seamless rhythm. Then suddenly it was as if a single finger, my own index finger came out from nowhere, stirred the entire movement of planets like someone stirring a small pool of water. And that was the entire vision. The first time it happened, I sincerely dismissed it, because it came with a message that said “It is the cosmic disturbance that will cause earthquakes and hail stones both on earth and in some planets.” I didn’t like the picture of what I saw nor did I appreciate the message that came with it. I struggled with it for days, tried not to engage my heart in order not to give the message any strength, and really tried not to write this article but then I was given this dream this night which instantly changed my resolve to write this message. In the dream, I was dragging two very heavy suitcases along a very dark road with no lights ahead of me. I knew in the dream that something was wrong because I was supposed to be taking my morning walk and not some dragging of heavy suitcases. Then I stopped and asked myself in the dream why I was dragging these two loads when they should not be with me in the first place. So I told myself that I was not going down that road anymore, nor was I going to drag the suitcases. I woke up from the dream and the time was past 3 in the morning. I was very disturbed about the dream. I did a quick review of events of the past days to see where something went wrong. I reviewed various activities I got involved in recently to see if there was something I wasn’t supposed to do that I did that got me tired and all that. I prayed about the whole thing and then a message came to me from the Lord saying “You feel you are tired but you are not. You only feel so because you took upon yourself that which you were not supposed to. To walk with Me is to be on the same step with me and to work with me is to do that which you are given to do within the time it is given for it to be done. Walking and working are interwoven, but always watch out for the walk, it’s the easiest to miss”. My heart felt peace instantly after these words and it was then that I realized that my not sharing the message He gave last week about the time of mourning, the receiving of the mark of God and the coming cosmic disturbance was what pushed me onto a wrong dark road with heavy loads. I repented of that disobedience, did a few other things and went back to sleep at about past 6. Then I was shown another dream where I was arranging a few items inside a very small and weightless backpack and somehow I knew the items I was arranging belonged to someone named Emmanuel, which means God with us, but this time there was no form of darkness or any negativity. I am sharing all this, to create a context for just how interested God is in the coming days and how much He wants each person to be prepared.

The mark, the name and the number of the beast

I won’t necessarily call this part a prophecy about the days of the antichrist, nor is it about unraveling the identity of the beast, so don’t take it as such. For me it is a postulation of what we can expect will be the direction the world will go towards in order to facilitate the reign of the beast on earth. It was added so each person reading can think things through and make up their mind with God how best to live in those days of tribulation. Even if you believe in a pre-tribulation “rapture”, which I don’t think is a reality, you can still prepare.

For me, the entire story of the mark, the name and the number of the beast in its physical interpretation is about a particular identity of an entity that will be introduced into the world scene and the global followership of that entity. In a simple form, the mark of the beast is a brand or seal or signature, the name of the beast is a name just like everyone on earth has a name and the number of the beast is the number of his registered identity. It’s like having a national identity card or an international passport that contains a name, a serial number and a signature or thumbprint but in a digital form. But in this case, through the various global agendas like the falsehood called Covid-19 that created a global shutdown, the coming Covid-19 digital certificate which is an implant or digital tattoo on the hand or maybe forehead that Bill Gates is planning and without which you can’t buy or sell or travel internationally, the internet of things powered by 5G technology, artificial intelligence with which the image of the beast (an AI powered humanoid) will be powered etc.; the issue of identity will be centralized globally for monitoring and control. Remember the story of Joseph and Mary going to Galilee to be numbered prior to the birth of Christ because Caesar Augustus had called for the entire world to be registered or numbered. (See Luke 2:1) The same thing will happen again. But this time, it is created in such a way that it will facilitate the rule of the antichrist on earth, but for those who are watching and mourning with Christ in these days, it will be the sign of the coming of Jesus the King. So for me, I do not believe the issue of the mark, name and number of the beast will take the form of some magical or supernatural events, but it will be much of advanced technology which will create awe and marvel in the eyes of many and they will be deceived to follow the beast and be identified with him. Some will do so because of the pressure of the coming days, some will do because of the love for technology and the awe it brings with it.

My postulations on the coming days

As I thought about all these things which were on my mind, strings of events started playing out and I could see that the strings somehow make sense. Here is what I thought and also postulate could happen. Could it be that the coming global end time events and the tribulation that will follow, as foretold by Jesus in Mathew 24, prior to His coming will hit the world with such a massive pressure and pain that men will be looking for the closest and the easiest way out? And knowing that the introduction of the antichrist according to Daniel 11:21 will be by peaceable accords with the Jews and global intrigues, men will be made to think that he, the antichrist, has come to give them rest from their pains and troubles and by that be deceived to identity with him by receiving his name, his mark and his number. I think about the coming events in three steps:

Step one: Create multiple heart breaking global events like this pandemic, supposed natural disasters that can be created by scalar technology, engineer more deadly diseases, create a global economic meltdown and the third world war which will completely ravage any form of hope in the masses and then create a forced global identity system to monitor and control. Just like the events of 9:11 created a global security awareness, control and monitoring.

Step two: using the pressure of the created global events as excuse, men will conspire to create a one world religion, a one world economy, a one world military, a one world government, which they will say will help with saving the world from more disaster, but which will be ruled by one person –the Antichrist. And mind you, the Antichrist as a mixed breed of cloned human flesh and the spirit of Satan is not going to have horns on his head or forked tongue like a snake like movies have portrayed him to. He will work more using fantasy, intrigue, luxury and the distribution of same, more than by war or force, to penetrate the hearts of men. His rule will be accepted globally because, for decades, men have been programmed to love and follow the lifestyle of convenience through movies, magazines, movie series that push the life of convenience narrative and the pseudo-internet lifestyles of vanity. And that’s also why the spirit of luxury and convenience has been fully unleashed on the institution church, so that when this time comes, they will all call it the blessings of God and they will be very useless to God. You can attest to how men will respond in those days just by watching how people all over the world are clamoring for this pandemic lockdown to be over so that they can go back to their lifestyles of convenience instead of paying attention to see what life will look like after the pandemic and in the coming days.

Step three: The antichrist will be revealed on the global scene with all the lying wonders of technology, glamor of luxury, global redistribution of massive wealth. His falsehoods will be propagated by his false prophets and with these falsehoods he will deceive the Jews that he is their long awaited messiah. He will make Jerusalem his spiritual headquarters after the Vatican has been destroyed. He will make a peace accord with the Jews, portraying himself as their prince of peace. But this peace accord will only last for there and half years and will be broken when the Jews find out about his lies, when he decides to sit in the holy of holies of the third temple which will be rebuilt in Jerusalem in what scripture calls the abomination of desolation. Knowing that his lies have been found out, he will unleash his wrath on the earth for another three and a half years. And then the Lord will appear who will destroy the beast or the antichrist with the breath of His mouth. Please remember, these are my thoughts and musings, and even though they are scriptural, do all to check everything with God.

God will wipe your tears away

It makes sense that the mark of God will be given to those who mourn and cry for righteousness’ sake while others are rejoicing in the frivolities and the worship of the system of convenience that is very close at hand. For everyone who will lay down their personal pots of water, take up the cross of the tears of Christ in these coming days, God will wipe away their tears and to them shall be given linen robes white and clean which the Lord shall give those who loved Him and who waited on Him. Certainly, the marriage of the Lamb and His bride is near. Pay attention.

Shalom. From your brother.

    1. Amen and you too. This certainly are the days of the separation between those who follow God and those who eat from the hand of Jezebel. We shall overcome. Blessings my brother.

  2. Thank you for sharing theses truths, and personal wonderings. As I read I was reminded of a quote from a movie I saw as a child…”Great storms announce themselves with a single breeze…”. We are feeling that breeze stir us now…..yet as you say, we have time to prepare for what is coming; to seek our Lord and do His will. May we have ears to hear, and faith to follow and to hold. Bless you and yours, and all His children scattered among the peoples of the world. Thank you for sharing theses precious things of our Lord.

    1. You’re most welcome Kim. And amen the prayers. Blessings.
