Pastor Dana Coverstone – August 24, 2020 Dream

This video by Pastor Dana Coverstone discusses three recent dreams he had, the latest of which was Monday, August 24, 2020.  If you’ve followed Pastor Dana’s dreams, you know that they do not foretell a good ending for this nation.  As we come into the Fall months, the context of the dreams becomes worse and worse.  By the time we get to the November 3 election, the dreams tell of great chaos.  Following the election, because the political outcome will not be what the party of anarchy desires, the people following their depraved ideology will not take their loss gracefully.

Two points:

  1. God is the bringing of order and peace.  He brings light into the midst of darkness.  It was He who tamed the chaos of the void and created the heavens and the earth.  The one who sows discord in the spiritual realm and in the world is God’s enemy.  Many follow him to their ultimate destruction.  Those who engage in the violence and hatred in these dark and troubling times will pay the final price.  They’ll get what they want: existence without God.  That will be an eternal judgment that they’ll spend in the Lake of Fire.
  2. All that God is showing to Pastor Dana should not be a surprise to Christ-followers who know Scripture and study Bible prophecy.  Birth pains before the return of Jesus are exactly what He said would happen.  Guess what?  Ask a woman who has given birth: those pains are painful!  All these things must come to pass, and then the end will come.  True Christians will be tested in the coming days–some of us with persecution and suffering.  But God is faithful.  He doesn’t allow any of us to endure more than we are able when we depend on Him to see us through.  Jesus is coming for His true church.  Do you truly know Him as Savior and Lord?  The pre-Tribulation Rapture will happen soon.  Are you ready?

 

Remember, there is Good News in all of this.  It’s found in the Person of Jesus Christ.  Do you have the hope in Him that those of us who love Him have?  If you don’t, it’s not too late.  Contact me and I’ll happily show you the way to enter God’s Kingdom.

Compiling a dream I had last Monday night and 2 newer ones that seem to be connected. Do with them what you will but pray for wisdom, discernment and understanding

Posted by Dana Coverstone on Tuesday, August 25, 2020

 

If you’d like to read an essay I wrote that addresses the response of the church to the times in which we live, you’ll find that at this link: What Are We Praying For?

What Are We Praying For?

This post will probably cause many people to disagree with me because it runs against the grain of what people want.  They think they’re in line with God’s purposes; they use Scripture to justify their position; they pray intently.  Yet, their desired result continues to slip away.

What is this unpopular position I hold that’s seemingly contrary to a wide swath of Christianity? – I’m taking a deep breath, so here goes . . .

How many people do you know who pray 2 Chronicles 7:14?

 . . . if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Why do they pray it?  They do so seeking revival.  In fact, revival is one of the biggest prayer requests I hear in a corporate setting.  People petition the Lord for a turning back of the darkness—the wickedness and evil—that has consumed the land, this United States we call home.

I get that; I really do.  The hatred and terrible acts of violence that appear to have no end are a pox on the soul.  To not be affected, I know that every day I have to give my frustration and anger back to God.  I’d be a walking-talking-blubbering mess otherwise.

There are a couple places I want to go with this.  First, let’s finish with the above verse.  One of the things that folks neglect when praying this is what comes before.  2 Chronicles 7:13 says the following:

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people,

From this we see there are very specific conditions in verse 13 in order for the praying of verse 14.

God says that when there’s drought, or a locust invasion, or plague—all of which He causes—then when his people humbly come to Him and seek relief He will answer.

Question: What was it that caused God to send these conditions upon the Israelites?  Answer: When they turned away from Yahweh and worshiped other gods.

Another question: Do we typically seek revival from God that is linked to such judgments similar to what Israel experienced?

Answer: No.

Lately, with the Wuhan virus, we’ve probably asked because of the plague connotation, but truthfully, have we seen an answer to our prayers that indicate God is relenting?

I personally don’t see it.  So, number one, we may be praying Scripture that has no connection with our situation because it was never intended to be used like we do.  We pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 in the hopes of revival, but God intended its use as a means to reverse his judgment that came in very specific ways for the Israelites.  Maybe, just maybe, God is allowing this virus to continue because of how it’s shaping us just as intended.

Perhaps the general population has to become subservient to government and seek a savior from the secular world.  Perhaps people need to be conditioned to accept what the authorities give, e.g. a vaccine now and another particular mark later.  Perhaps the hearts of many have to grow exceedingly cold and hard.

Here’s my second point, which surely isn’t a popular position.  Why do we pray for revival when God has told us the world is going to experience something very different than that, namely the Tribulation encompassing God’s wrath and punishment?

Scripture couldn’t be clearer.  God has told us the world is going down.  The sin and depravity will continue to get worse.  Not only will secular mankind tell God it doesn’t need Him, but so will the church.  So it is.  We see in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that there must be a falling away in the church:

Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

Apostasy is the Greek word apostasia.  It variously means “defection, forsaking, revolt, falling away” in the Biblical sense from true religion.  Christ’s Body, the church of God, turns its back on Him.  We see it.  It’s happening before our very eyes, and has been for some time.  We are reaching a remnant state.  Churches that still faithfully follow God are becoming Philadelphia churches with little power (Revelation 3:8).

Yet we still pray for revival.

You know what that tells me?  That we want the world more than we want to see God’s kingdom in His actual presence.

“But, Gary, we pray for revival because we want the world to come to Christ!”

Really?  Or are we doing so because we really want to see our kids graduate, marry, and bring us grandchildren?  Are we so much desiring others to come to the Lord, or are we so invested in the world that the thought of losing it is painful?  Why do so many people gravitate toward New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) thinking that prophesies revival and a great and glorious future for the church where we take dominion in all cultural spheres?  Why don’t we believe the Bible when it says that God effectively gets to the point of no return in this Church Age, just like He did with Israel and their apostasy?

If we believed the Bible, we would trust that God has made a determination to finally pour out His wrath on this unbelieving world.  If we believed the Bible, we would let go of the notion of revival.  We’d let go of the world.

Instead of seeking revival, we’d do everything we could to strengthen what is left of the church.  We’d pour ourselves into discipling others and studying God’s Word.

Within our four walls and with other true churches we would work to bring unity among us, knowing how much that pleases God.  I’m not speaking of ecumenical unity.  That focuses on the lowest common denominator and inevitably strays from Biblical truth.  I’m talking about unity that lifts up and glorifies God because Christ’s Body is working together—each member with the other—in prayer and service to the Lord, following a Biblical path toward righteousness.

Last, but surely not least, we would as a church take God’s admonition seriously for us to be a light to the world.  Darkness is not an affirmative force; light is.  Jesus is the light of the world, and we are to reflect that light into as many dark corners as possible while there is still time.  In our doing this, would pockets of revival break out before Jesus comes to snatch us away in the Rapture?  Perhaps.  That would be an amazing side benefit of these three tasks.

Do you see the difference?  If we pray for revival, we’re essentially trying to convince God the plan He has laid out in His Word needs alteration or our approval.  If we pray to truly be the church that He called us to be, then the revival might happen, but more importantly, we’re being obedient to God’s plans for His Body.

I’ll tell you my prayer: “Lord, thy will be done.  Come quickly, Lord Jesus!”

What a Mess!

We know that following the 7-year Tribulation the 1,000-year reign of Christ known as the Millennial Kingdom will come.  It’s going to be an amazing time for those who were Raptured into glorified bodies and will actually rule and reign with Jesus.  The world at that time and how we operate in it is the source of much speculation and anticipation, but here’s a question I’ve never heard:

Following the Tribulation, the earth as we know it is going to be an absolute mess.  How does it get from that condition into the pristine world that we’ll inhabit during the Millennium?

Think about this.  God has rained down His wrath to bring Israel to the point of acknowledging Jesus Christ as Messiah and to punish the anti-God unbelievers.  He’s done this through the three sets of Judgments: Seal – Trumpet – Bowl.  Water everywhere has turned to blood.  Massive earthquakes have leveled cities and mountains.  Comets and asteroids have devastated the earth.  The sun has burned up the land.  Dead bodies lie festering as a source of disease.  Blood drenches the plains and mountains.

Welcome to the Millennial Kingdom – paradise – the utopia we’ve all dreamed about!

What’s wrong with this picture?

This just can’t be right.  Something has to happen to make our entry into the Millennium a little more pleasant than what it would be otherwise.

Following the final 1260 days of the Tribulation,, i.e. the 2nd half of the Tribulation, there is another 75-day period prior to the start of Christ’s Kingdom on earth.  There are several events that will occur during this time beyond the scope of this essay, but briefly they will include such things as the cleanup of Antichrist’s temple desolation and the probable destruction/removal of the temple.  There will be various judgments and resurrections, and possibly the wedding feast of the Lamb.  I’ve heard different timings on the feast, but when the wedding parable in Matthew 22:1-14 is considered, its being held at this point makes sense to me.

In thinking about the mess to paradise paradigm, I went to the one source that I’ve found to answer many sticky questions, namely The Footsteps of the Messiah by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0914863096/.

In the chapter titled “General Characteristics of the Messianic Kingdom,” Dr. Fruchtenbaum, in his normal thorough examination of end-times events, addresses this very issue.  He points to Isaiah 65:17-25, which says:

17 “For behold, I create new heavens
and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
or come into mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever
in that which I create;
for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
and her people to be a gladness.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem
and be glad in my people;
no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
and the cry of distress.
20 No more shall there be in it
an infant who lives but a few days,
or an old man who does not fill out his days,
for the young man shall die a hundred years old,
and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 They shall build houses and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 They shall not build and another inhabit;
they shall not plant and another eat;
for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain
or bear children for calamity,
for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,
and their descendants with them.
24 Before they call I will answer;
while they are yet speaking I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together;
the lion shall eat straw like the ox,
and dust shall be the serpent’s food.
They shall not hurt or destroy
in all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.

Looking at this passage, you’ll no doubt immediately protest that Isaiah is speaking of the final remaking of the earth in verse 17 that we see in Revelation 21:1:

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

But does it?  Following Dr. Fruchtenbaum’s logic, and examining the passage more deeply, we see that it speaks of those who will die after 100 years for their sins (presumably because they’ve chosen not to trust Jesus as their Savior).  They will be accursed and subject to death.  Is that your understanding of the final New Heavens and New Earth?

Revelation 21:8 says:

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Revelation 22:3 says:

No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.

In this final era, it certainly appears that there will be no more sin and no more people considered accursed because they’ll all reside in the Lake of Fire.  If that’s the case, then the Scripture in Isaiah must be referring to a different time period.  And, if that’s true, then apparently God will do a supernatural cleanup that is different from the fire cleansing spoken of in 2 Peter 3:10:

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

I don’t know about you, but as I was thinking about this situation before I found this explanation, I figured that all of us coming into the Millennial Kingdom, glorified and mortal, would have a massive cleanup effort.  Whew!  Thank God, that appears not to be part of our purposeful work when we get there.

Bottom line: God’s got this mess handled just like He has everything else under control.

Pastor Dana Coverstone – August 10, 2020 Dream

Below is another foreboding dream by Pastor Dana Coverstone.  You can believe or you can mock.  I happen to believe that he’s hearing from God, and that God is clearly warning His church to get ready for what’s to come.  The church can bury its head in the sand because it doesn’t believe in prophetic dreams or visions, or even about the actual fulfillment of Bible prophecy coming to pass before our very eyes.  The tendency is for the wishful thinking of a nationwide (worldwide?) revival, and that God will once more stay His hand of judgment upon America.  I think we’re beyond that, and through Pastor Dana that God is telling those in the church who will listen that the time is NOW.

Are you ready for persecution to come to our communities and churches on a level never before imagined in this country?  If not, I urge to think hard about that and get ready.  God is wrapping up history as we know it.  The Church Age is coming to an end.  The Rapture will soon take place and those left behind will face the horrors of the 7-year Tribulation.  Believe me, that’s not a time you want to live through, because you probably won’t.

NOW – TODAY!!! – is the day of your salvation.  If you don’t know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, it’s time, because time is running out.  If you aren’t sure if you’re saved, and want to be sure and need to talk about it, contact me.  I’m happy to show you how to walk the narrow path into God’s Kingdom.

A dream I had on Monday August 10th.

Posted by Dana Coverstone on Thursday, August 13, 2020

 

Here is a link to Michael Snyder’s blog which has a transcript of the dream: http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/a-transcript-of-pastor-dana-coverstones-ominous-new-prophetic-warning-about-the-end-of-2020

How To Legally Obtain Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)

Have you ever wondered about something and an answer miraculously appears?  Literally, just a couple days ago I was thinking about how I could obtain Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to have on hand “just in case” my wife and I happened to get infected with COVID-19.  Since most government authorities and the medical establishment seem determined not to allow the public access to this simple treatment that has shown itself so effective, my mental inquiry wasn’t a flight of fancy.  Then yesterday, along comes Geri Ungurean at her blog: Absolute Truth from the Word of God with an answer.

I have contacted the telemedicine provider noted below and spoken with a doctor.  I’m waiting for the next step in which they will presumably contact me to provide a prescription.  I’ll note an update when that occurs.

If you decide to also go this route, please keep the cautions in mind that Geri outlines in her piece about drug interactions with any medicines you may currently be taking.

 

UPDATE 8-12-20

I actually received the call from the doctor the same evening (Monday) as which I filled out the online questionnaire and paid in advance for the “visit.”  The next day (Tuesday) I expected to receive a call from the online pharmacy but didn’t receive one, so called the contact number for the telemedicine provider.  On the following day (Wednesday – the day of this update) I received the pharmacy call for the HCQ prescription.  Having paid for that over the phone, I was told that I should receive the shipment in 2-3 days via UPS ground.  The shipping cost was included in the price of the medicine.

 

UPDATE 8-17-20

I received the pharmacy shipment of HCQ today by UPS, 8 days from start to finish of filling out the telemedicine questionnaire.  The label said that there were 17 pills, as did the receipt, however I happened to count the number of pills and there were only 12!  I called the pharmacy to report the error, and they said they would send me the remaining pills, so the saga continues.  Because you take the pills over an extended period of time, this is not be a crucial problem.  Obviously, it’s important to get what you paid for, so I’ll report again when I receive the final count.

 

FINAL UPDATE 8-20-20

UPS just delivered the last five pills that I’d been shorted in the original shipment.

 

Here’s Geri’s blog piece in its entirety:

 

People Desperately Trying to Get HCQ and AZITHROMAX: I Will Show You How to LEGALLY Attain These Drugs

The Word of the year ‘2020’ aside from Covid-19 is Hydroxychloroquine.

This drug was politicized after President Trump gave it a thumb’s up and told the public that he was on it as a prophylaxis.

The Leftist media immediately jumped on our president and the drug quickly became a “joke.”

Well, it is certainly not a joke!

Here are some articles I have written on this topic:

Censoring HCQ, Azithromycin and Zinc as cure for Covid19: What is Really Going On?

NIH Study Clearly Shows Hydroxychloroquine With Azithromycin Added Kills Covid 19 – Fauci Knew Since 2005 NO ONE NEEDED TO DIE

Leaders of Countries Instructed to Take HCQ As Prophylaxis Against Covid 19: General Population is Told HCQ is Worthless

America’s Frontline Doctors and How they were Demonized:

Various Media outlets banned the video of America’s doctors speaking about the success of HCQ and Z-pak and Zinc in the treatment of the dreaded disease Covid 19.

That video was banned and scrubbed from the Interest numerous times but found its way back.

My doctor refused ever prescribing HCQ – even if I was in the hospital with Covid 19.  I spoke to our pharmacist and he told me that he had HCQ and Z-pak on hand and that he would fill any prescriptions for these drugs. Many pharmacists are refusing to fill the script which comes in- between the patient and his/her doctor.

Dr. Stella Emmanuel

Dr. Stella is one of America’s Frontline doctors. I was able to contact her and asked her if it was possible to get the life saving drugs. She sent me this:

SpeakWithAnMD.com Dr. Stella Telemedicine Affiliate

****BEFORE you click that link to get started, you must do this:

Search for “Drug Interactions” and go into the site. Then put in any pharmaceutical drugs which you are presently taking. Then put in Hydroxychloroquine.  Look for any Serious interactions.  My husband went through the process and a doctor called him. She had looked at his questionnaire and he is on one pharmaceutical that has a bad interaction with HCQ.  Tim has PTSD from Vietnam and his VA doctor has him on a low dosage of Zoloft. Zoloft and HCQ are not a good match (heart issues)  Tim is going to see his doctor and try to ween off of this drug so that he can order HCQ. He found out that the VA does prescribe HCQ.

When you click on that link, a series of questions about your health and medicines you take will appear.  Just answer the questions and then at the end you will need to pay with a credit card for the doctor to call you. I was happy to pay……best $90 I ever spent.

The next day, a doctor did call me and asked me more questions. He told me that he would prescribe the two medicines for me. He said that a pharmacist would be calling me. We bought Zinc over the counter . The three pills must be taken together. The dose for HCQ is 2 pills a day for 5 days and then 1 pill each week for 5 weeks. Z-pak gives directions on dosage – follow them.  Zinc is taken once a day. I ordered 30 mg – some people order 50 mg.

I now have the medicines in my kitchen but will not use them unless I develop symptoms of Covid or I am tested and it is confirmed. These medicines must be taken in early-stage Covid; late stage is too late.

I may get in trouble for writing this piece, but if this can save even one person from dying of Covid19 – it was well worth writing.

How Can I Be Saved?

MARANATHA!!

The Q Quandary – Part 2

In Part 1 of The Q Quandary, I described how Christians can be deceived in following Q without exercising wisdom and discernment.  The reason for this is because the outcome that Q espouses is exactly the same as what the New Age / New Gnostic community believes will happen.  Their expectation is that once Q defeats the Deep State forces arrayed against President Trump, this will result in a Great Awakening, i.e. a glorious future free of the evil players attempting to create a New World Order.  This is not a Biblical outcome.  Scripture tells us the world will get darker as mankind becomes more depraved in its anti-God fervor.  This will lead to the Tribulation.  That’s quite a difference in outcomes.

In this essay, Part 2 of The Q Quandary, I wanted to outline the contrasting thinking of Q’s New Age-Gnostic followers versus how they view the opposing Deep Staters that desire to enact a One World Government, and then add a couple of other factors into the mix.  The chart below hopefully summarizes this conflicting thinking between the two groups.

Those who follow Q can be said to be part of the Alliance, while the Deep State players are described as the Cabal.

Alliance                                  Cabal

Q                                            Deep State

Light                                       Dark

White hats                              Black hats

White magic                           Black magic

Illumination                             Satanism

New Age-Gnostic                   New World Order

Freedom                                 Domination

Storm – expose dark             Shelter – hide dark deeds

Righteous                              Morally depraved  (elite pedophilia rings)

 

This isn’t perfect, but you can get a sense of the gathering conflict.  However, as I noted in Part 1, this is—on the surface to a Christian observer—Satan against Satan and a house divided.  As I also said, that’s not the case.

In thinking about these two factions, I realized that they aren’t the only conflicting ideologies.  In fact, Satan isn’t juggling just two balls with his sleight-of-hand to distract Christ-followers from the truth of Scripture, he’s got at least four balls in the air.  There are undoubtedly more, but the other two major ones are the Red-Green Alliance, comprised of Red Marxists and Green Islamists on one hand, and the Apostate Church on the other.

The Red-Green Alliance causes Christians to stumble because of various lies they believe.  Prominent dupes of the Red Marxist cause are those on the Left, the liberals who believe in climate change, social justice, and the false racist narrative that’s currently being peddled.  At the same time, the Green Islamic side has done a remarkable job of confusing immature Christians to think that Islam and Christianity worship the same God.  They do not.  But gullible Christians are led down this path of Chrislam, believing that since Islam and Christianity are both Abrahamic faiths, they are equally valid.

While these forces are in play drawing Christians into false narratives, within the overall scope of what’s considered Christianity, there’s another major pond of quicksand.  Most of us are aware of the great apostasy taking place in the church.  Mainline denominations have almost completely succumbed.  Evangelicals are likewise embracing non-Biblical positions through aberrant support of LGBT and other like currents in society.  However, rampant ecumenicalism is also muddying the water.  The Vatican has attempted to overthrow the Reformation ever since it began with Luther.  The various popes have worked to undermine the wrong-thinking protestant church by bringing its leaders together to agree on various so-called common doctrines.  By doing this, the vital differences have been ignored in the interest of unity.  This has led in recent years to evangelicals “coming back” to Rome and agreeing that the Reformation was a mistake.  One prominent evangelical leader even went so far as to kiss the feet of the pope as an act of repentance and honor.

If you consider these four balls that Satan is juggling, on the surface you’d think that he really has a divided kingdom.  But, if you realize his every intent is not to have one side “win”; rather, it’s to draw God’s people into confusion and to darkness, then Satan’s mash of seemingly opposing positions makes sense.

Coming back to Q, as I’ve said previously, the stated outcome of eliminating the Deep State and the satanic elites who comprise it is a terrific effort.  Who of right mind could oppose that?  But as true followers of Jesus Christ, we must not be led astray.

By remembering that we’re in the world—and thus should be aware of what’s going on around us—we must absolutely not be of the world.  We must see through a Biblical, prophetic lens.  It is only through that prism that we can rightly discern the deceptions around us and the dark spiritual forces that desire to keep us from God and Truth.

Let’s stay awake and alert to keep on focus on Jesus and His soon return.

The Q Quandary – Part 1

The rise of Q and his public resistance against the Deep State has sent its globalist-minded minions into a frenzy.  Social media—when they even allow posts about Q—usually place warning labels to the effect that Q is an unproven tool of those who hold to far-right conspiracy theories.  Q has united people of many different belief systems against the New World Order that elites desire to bring about for the purposes of power and domination.

Many Christians have joined the Q movement because—whether they understand Bible prophecy or not—they instinctively oppose the Deep State and its bad actors.  Surprisingly, a large segment of the New Age community also resists the New World Order.  As a result, Christians—knowingly or not—are in league with New Agers.  Another interesting aspect of this is that many of these New Agers can also be called New Gnostics.

The Bible gives us sage advice in 2 Corinthians 6:14:

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

Why do I bring this up?  If Christians are of the light, then what is the New Age movement?  Even more so, what about the New Gnostic beliefs?  Yes, they are darkness.  Thus, in our common disdain for the Deep State and its eventual NWO, we as light are yoked with darkness.

Let’s examine this a little deeper to understand the scenario.

I think true Christians would all agree that the Deep State, and where it leads, is toxic and evil.  I believe we who truly know the Word of God would also concur that New Age beliefs are an abomination to God. We typically associate New Age with the occult, meditation, yoga, and practices of Eastern or Hindu origin.  Gnosticism in a nutshell turns the Bible upside down.  In their understanding, God is the bad guy and Lucifer is good.  He brought wisdom and enlightenment to mankind and got a bad rap for it, while God tried to hide all this wonderful insight.  In the Gnostic view, man effectively lives in the matrix of illusion, and must “take the red pill” to break free into the clarity of awakening.

If the Deep State is demonic and New Age / New Gnostic is demonic, what’s going on?  How could it be that satanically inspired esoteric believers are against this globalist cabal which is also satanic?

Matthew 12:25-26 tells us:

Knowing their thoughts, [Jesus] said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?

Would Satan divide his own house?  No, and that’s the Q Quandary.

I’m teaching a Bible Discipleship class in which we’re reading through the Bible in a year.  Each week I usually give a Prophecy Update to the class prior to our diving into God’s Word.  On June 24, 2020 my update dealt with all things Q.  You can find it here if interested: http://garyritter.com/prophecy-update-q-the-nwo/.

The following is a heavily edited transcript capturing several minutes of that class beginning at 1:06:00 into the video:

[Gary] So, where do some or many Q followers go wrong?  Well, first of all, many Q followers are Christians, but what they do is they ignore Bible prophecy.

[Student] Because they fall into the premise that the good side is going to take over the world.

[Gary] Exactly. Because [Q’s end game] is similar to the New Apostolic Reformation thinking, which says that “We’re going to take control of the world, all the levers of society, all the cultural aspects of society. And we’re going to rise to the top, and then all the money will flow to us.”

[Gary] And then, over whatever period of time, NAR will Christianize the world and hand that to Jesus when He comes. Well, the Bible doesn’t say that. I’ll just warn you that you might come across some things [regarding Q] you have to take with a grain of salt.  It’s Kingdom Now. There is a very good, incisive look at the Deep State [on YouTube] called the Cabal Series. It’s really good because it goes into all the stuff, including the sexual predator stuff, that the Deep State people [who are part of it] do. It’s absolutely disgusting.  At the end of it, it goes in this NAR direction.  The thinking behind all that Q is doing is they are going to beat back the Deep State. And [when they do] this opens up a wonderful world free [and glorious].  I mean, it’s a nice idea, but I don’t buy it.  On the other hand, I also believe we still have to do everything that we can [against the Deep State].

 

When I did this class, I saw there were issues as to where following Q led.  You can see I had concerns about Q because his end game isn’t Biblical.  What I didn’t do was to connect all the dots despite seeing some of them.

Many readers may be familiar with Pastor J.D. Farag, who is a noted Bible prophecy teacher.  Pastor J.D. does weekly Bible prophecy updates.  In his update of July 19, 2020, he spoke extensively about Q and issued a warning.  You can see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot4SZmr7RjM&t=2619s.

He dove deeper than I previously had and assembled the puzzle pieces that I did not.

I’m going to try to simplify this explanation:

 

Q is against the Deep State

New Age-Gnostics are against the Deep State

Christians are against the Deep State

Q is comprised of many Christian supporters

 

Deep State is demonic

New Age-Gnosticism is demonic

Christians are of God

 

If Satan is not divided against himself

If Satan wouldn’t actually cause division between Deep State and New Age-Gnostics

Then Satan is deceiving us by creating a diversion

 

New Age-Gnostics desire an end game in which “We are god”

New Age-Gnostics desire “A Great Awakening” [Q drop 3858]

Q desires a Great Awakening

Q believes that when the Deep State is eradicated:

Then, “A Beautiful Brave New World Lies Ahead” [Q drop 2450]

 

This scenario has been likened to a false flag operation.  Both Christians and New Age-Gnostics oppose the Deep State.  They align and are yoked in their common goal of exposing and destroying the Deep State.  Because Q is a good and worthy force through his efforts to eradicate the Deep State; by definition, this means all that he says is good and acceptable.  Thus, Christians are co-opted into the New Age-Gnostic thinking because they believe in Q’s Great Awakening and its ultimate good outcome.

Guess what?  Christians are being deceived as Satan accomplishes his goal of turning them from God in their total embrace of Q and his stated outcomes.

Devious is not graphic enough to describe this plan.

I say this as one who loves what Q is doing to attack and dismantle the Deep State and the horrific pedophile rings that live within it:

Christians, do not buy Q’s end game.  Follow and appreciate what Q does, but do so with wisdom and discernment, knowing that Satan wants to suck you in and away from the truth of God.  He will do anything he can to confuse your understanding of Scripture and Bible prophecy.  Satan’s efforts lead to a dark place, not a Great Awakening.  You have been warned!

Prophecy Message: Things Past – Things to Come

In the Sunday morning service of New Beginnings Church on 8-2-20, I had the great privilege and awesome responsibility of bringing the message.  It is one of Bible prophecy that provides an overview of these issues:

What’s God’s Plan
What’s His Purpose?
Where Do We Go from Here?

I pray you’ll receive these words in the Spirit they were given: to give all glory to God!

Conditional or Definitive Warning?

Here’s the question of the hour: Are the prophetic dreams and visions we’ve been hearing about lately 1) conditional notices from God, 2) definitive warnings, or 3) the result of indigestion?  Although there are likely many who are in the third camp for these possibilities, I’m going to stick with the first two in this discussion.

For those of us who are Watchmen on the Wall (per Ezekiel 3:17), we’ve been seeing the incredible buildup of prophetic signs these last several years that have accelerated in 2020 at an astounding pace.  Many of us have been warning for quite a while that, yes, these signs do signal the nearing return of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We’ve seen and called out what is termed the Convergence.  This has brought into view literally every possible indicator of these final of the Last Days.  The markers include, but are by no means limited by, false Christs, false prophets, wars, rumors, famines, earthquakes, pestilence, plague, apostasy, love grown cold, mocking, depravity, and on we go.  It’s enough to take your breath away.

The latest fuel added to the fire is the series of prophetic dreams by Pastor Dana Coverstone, who never imagined his videos purposed for followers of his church would have a global reach.  But they have, and they’ve touched a nerve.

For those who’ve taken the dreams seriously, there seem to generally be two somewhat divergent streams of thought.  There are those who believe they’re conditional, and those who consider them decisive warnings.

The conditional group believe that, although serious, the dreams portend the disastrous prophesied ending only occurs if the church doesn’t pray.  They cling to 2 Chronicles 7:14:

if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

This has great validity.  God throughout the ages has given His people chance after chance when they finally stopped becoming no different than the world and then turned to Him in prayerful repentance.

The final warning folks take a different approach.  I outlined some of this in a prior essay titled A Jeremiah Nation: http://garyritter.com/a-jeremiah-nation/.  The bottom line in that piece was that a time came upon Israel in which God finally said, “Enough!”  I proposed that America may indeed have reached that nadir, i.e. the status in which God declares that no prayers will stay His hand.

I end up with mixed feelings between these two extremes, assuming they’re correct and God doesn’t surprise us with something completely different.  I’m not sure what that would mean, since Scripture clearly points to the disturbing end of America through our seeming lack of presence in end-times events.

What do I mean by mixed feelings?  I love this country and hate how it’s being undermined and destroyed from within.  I’d like to see the church rise up and be what it’s supposed to be, i.e. a light in the darkness.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we did that and many people turned to Jesus as Lord and Savior?

But, although I’m doing pretty well in this regard, I know that many people are weary.  They’ve watched and longed for Christ’s imminent return and begun to wonder whether that imminency is real.  They want to go home to the Lord.  They’re tired of being part of this world that has so many other intentions than following Jesus.  Is praying for Him to stay His hand of wrath on our nation as high on the list as it may have been in times past?  Do they really want to keep their eyes on this sin-drenched world any longer, rather than see Jesus face-to-face?

To look at Pastor Dana’s prophecies as ones that are decreed, i.e. there is no reprieve, has an attraction.  Their fulfillment surely heralds the final last gasp of the Church Age.  If that’s so, then Jesus really, truly could be coming for us in the clouds very, very soon.  Of course, the downside to these dreams means potential persecution for the church in America, if put into a logical timeline like I tried to do in another essay titled: Prophetic Dreams – How Can This Be?  http://garyritter.com/prophetic-dreams-how-can-this-be/.  In other words, things could get quite ugly for believers who stand boldly for Christ before He snatches us away.

Under the assumption that God has truly spoken to Pastor Dana—which we’ll learn before the year ends—it’s the nature of the words given to him that make me believe there is no turning back.  Here are the specific words that he reported:

“Brace yourself.”

“Endure to the end.”

“Something big is coming.”

Subsequently, in another dream, the message for the church was for us to strengthen ourselves in the Lord, to be unified, and to be the light that will bring others to Christ.

All these don’t sound to me like conditional statements.  They sound conclusive, as though God has made up His mind and the prophesied events are coming.  These words sound to me like a serious wake-up call, and that we had better be ready.  A major whammy is coming in which the church will be smack in the middle.

In either case, whether God will turn at this time from that which was shown to Pastor Dana, or not, the bottom line must be for the church to get serious in its faith.  I’ve said this many times: While we wait for the Lord, we are to occupy, performing the plans and purposes God has set for each us.  That will give us joy and peace, even in these turbulent times.  When we’re obedient to God, He blesses us and sees us through whatever may come our way.

We can never stand, now or later, if we’re not wholly devoted to the Word of God and prayer.  These two activities will root us; they will help us fulfill the threefold message of strengthen, unify, and be a light, and prepare us for the worst whenever it happens.

Which it certainly will at some point, just as Scripture foretells.

A Jeremiah Nation

I submit to you that America is a Jeremiah nation in a Jeremiah moment.  This was made clear to me as I came across an article by Michael Snyder on his End of the American Dream blog: http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/something-big-is-coming-pastor-dana-coverstone-just-had-another-prophetic-dream-about-the-month-of-september

Snyder notes two items of importance.

  1. Another prophetic dream by Pastor Dana Coverstone that he recounts as part of his sermon message.
  2. A national call to prayer by Jonathan Cahn.

The morning I came across Snyder’s article, I was praying and asking God: “What do I pray for, Lord?  How do I even pray in these dark times?”  I believe this article is God’s response as an answer to my prayers.

Let me briefly summarize both items.

Another prophetic dream by Pastor Dana Coverstone that he recounts as part of his sermon message.

 This dream followed the same pattern as his previous ones with a calendar and emphasis on a certain month; in this case it was this September 2020.  The message was that the church must have a strong backbone, that there will be a great harvest, and that corruption within the church will be exposed.  Emphasis was placed on the calling of a solemn assembly in this coming month of September.  The assembly of praying saints will face significant spiritual warfare, yet unity in the Body of Christ will develop.  Despite being beaten and broken, people will stand victoriously through the ordeal.  In the midst of this, Jesus speaks to His true church, saying “Arise, My Bride…Prepare to pray…Prepare to see My face…I am coming soon.”

Nowhere was there indication that the Rapture would necessarily happen at this particular time.  Nowhere was there indication that God would stay His hand of judgment on this nation.  The bottom line was that: “Something big is coming.”

A national call to prayer by Jonathan Cahn.

Johnathan Cahn has been a prophetic voice for a number of years.  He has written several books that articulate the messages God has given him.  In obedience to this, he, along with a solid team of ministry leaders, is calling for a day and a season of prayer in September.

Cahn is calling for a solemn assembly.  This is the Mission Statement for the initiative called The Return:

“We need to make an honest inventory of personal as well as corporate (national) sin. In order to rectify them, we must acknowledge these sins, own them, and humble ourselves before the Lord. Pray that the Lord helps us, giving us the spiritual fortitude and grace to not only recognize spiritual deficiency but to be remorseful in spirit, pleading for His mercy and forgiveness.”

If you note the leadership team and advisors to this effort, it is not a creature of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).  This is important.  Cahn for many years has been warning America of coming judgment, not revival leading to a non-Scriptural, Christianized world that the church hands to Jesus upon His return, as NAR leaders declare will happen.

Here is the link to the website for this prayer effort in September for The Return: https://thereturn.org/

 

What does all this mean and where does it lead?

Many in the church have prayed for God’s mercy on this nation; that He would hold off in judgment.  Others of us have wondered when America would reach the tipping point in trying God’s patience.  And make no mistake, we see in the Bible where He reaches that point with Israel.  Should we in America think that we’re immune to this?

I believe that Pastor Dana’s prior dreams have shown that we have passed the point of no return.  You may criticize and say this is pessimistic to the Nth degree.  I humbly submit that it is the best news we who love the Lord can have.  Our time on this earth is drawing to a close.  Soon, we will be with our Lord and Savior.  What could be better than that?  To keep our hearts focused on the things of this world that is not our home?  I don’t think so.

What do I think the Lord is telling me as to how I should pray and what should I pray about?  Is it to turn God’s hand, or is it for the church to rise up and become what it should have been all along?  Exactly what Pastor Dana saw: that the church must have a strong backbone, that there will be a great harvest, and that corruption within the church will be exposed.

Why did I title this essay as I did?  Not that God will relent as the message of Joel 2:12-14 declares that God will turn from the disaster He has planned; rather like in Jeremiah’s time God had determined enough is enough as He says in Jeremiah 11:14:

“Therefore do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer on their behalf, for I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their trouble.”

Throughout Jeremiah, we see God’s declarations against the apostasy and hostility toward the Lord by Judah, its priests, and its people:

Jeremiah 2:8

The priests did not say, ‘Where is the Lord?’
Those who handle the law did not know me;
the shepherds transgressed against me;
the prophets prophesied by Baal
and went after things that do not profit.

Jeremiah 2:19

Your evil will chastise you,
and your apostasy will reprove you.
Know and see that it is evil and bitter
for you to forsake the Lord your God;
the fear of me is not in you,
declares the Lord God of hosts.

Jeremiah 4:22

“For my people are foolish;
they know me not;
they are stupid children;
they have no understanding.
They are ‘wise’—in doing evil!
But how to do good they know not.”

Jeremiah 5:3

O Lord, do not your eyes look for truth?
You have struck them down,
but they felt no anguish;
you have consumed them,
but they refused to take correction.
They have made their faces harder than rock;
they have refused to repent.

What does God say to all this?

Jeremiah 5:7

“How can I pardon you?
Your children have forsaken me
and have sworn by those who are no gods.
When I fed them to the full,”
they committed adultery
and trooped to the houses of whores.

Jeremiah 5:9

“Shall I not punish them for these things?”
declares the Lord;
“and shall I not avenge myself
on a nation such as this?”

The book is filled with such statements.  God has determined that He will not relent and stay His hand of judgment.  All this leads to the most terrible time that will ever come upon this earth: the 7-year Tribulation:

Jeremiah 30:7

Alas! That day is so great
there is none like it;
it is a time of distress for Jacob;
yet he shall be saved out of it.

As we see, there is a hope and a future for Israel.  A few verses back, God promises this:

Jeremiah 30:3

“For behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will restore the fortunes of my people, Israel and Judah,” says the Lord, “and I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall take possession of it.”

The church today has this same hope, although it will play out differently for us.  We who know Jesus as Lord and Savior will be removed from the earth during the time of Jacob’s trouble.  Israel, in its rejection of Christ, must go through it and pay a severe penalty:

Zechariah 13:8-9

In the whole land, declares the Lord,
two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
and one third shall be left alive.
And I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver,
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call upon my name,
and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘They are my people’;
and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

In summary, what’s the bottom line for the church in America as I see it?  I believe events will play out as God has shown Pastor Dana.  November will see great chaos.  The church will be subsequently persecuted prior to the Rapture.  Before all this, in September, many in the church will awaken to prayer and supplication before the Lord so that we might be strengthened and ready to face what is coming.

I realize this is not a message many want to hear.  Who wants more chaos?  Who wants to be persecuted?  Wouldn’t we rather see wholesale revival and for all this to go away?  Indeed.  But, Scripture indicates no such thing.

Now is the time for us as a holy people of God to pray for exactly that which was shown Pastor Dana.  I think that is God’s will for me and for the church so that we will be ready.  Let’s look forward to September with eager anticipation for a deep time with the Lord that enables us to stand boldly for Christ.

Something big is coming.
