Matthew 24:1-16, 22 and 33-36.
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say to you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
( The elects sake means for the sake of Christians those days will be shortened. There will be a nuclear war.)
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
After Jesus described the temple destruction in Matthew 24:2 which happened in AD70 , and referred to what is now church history, Jesus said "the end is still to come" (Matthew 24:6).
The end of the age here is the battle of Armageddon and Jesus' return. Jesus will appear visibly to all the world in the clouds and then He sets up his 1000 year kingdom. Jesus explained a time of sorrows including global persecution of Christians prior to that.(Matthew 24:8-10 ). There has been Christian Persecution for the past 2000 years. It will intensify into all nations of the world. Jesus spoke of all Nations which will include North America, including the USA and Canada. According to some reports, there are now 160 countries of 195 countries in the world where there is persecution of Christians. Persecution will be in all the countries of the world.
After the times of sorrow there is the Great Tribulation to come described in the Book of Revelation in detail. Jesus also says in Matthew 24:22 that no flesh would be saved except for the elect He will shorten the days. The elect are Christians in the Great Tribulation.
Now there are great hopes that we might be taken out of the world before all happens. However, those in persecuted countries today where they are tortured, beheaded, losing their limbs and their lives, they make no such distinction.
Jesus said no one knows when He returns in Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knows no man.
People say to me, don't worry so much about preparing as a Christian, believe in the Pre-Tribulation rapture:
In Rev. 16:15, Jesus says in the middle of the tribulation:" Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame."
Why would Jesus say this if He has come already? Why would He tell me in the middle of the tribulation to watch for His coming?
In Daniel 12:1-2 it discusses a resurrection. Generally we think of two great resurrections, the one at the rapture and the one at the Great White Throne Judgement.
My question then concerning Daniel 12:1-2 is: Which resurrection is being spoken off here? Is it the first resurrection or the Great White Throne Judgment?
Please consider this text: Daniel 12:1-2:"And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
If we believe in two great resurrections, which is the one in Daniel? Only "some" are raised not all. Also please note that the resurrection spoken off here is after a time of trouble in the world such as never was.
People say to me :"God has not appointed us to wrath." I agree 100%. But the word "wrath" must be understood correctly. The correct interpretation concerning wrath is this:
1 Thess. 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
The wrath of God is against all unrighteousness and not Christians.
However, God has not excluded us Christians from suffering: Romans 8:17 says: and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
Me may have to suffer to give a testimony that some might be saved.
Jesus spoke in Matthew about times of sorrow prior to the great tribulation: Now let us continue with what is happening today. There continue to be great thunder clouds in our skies because of COVID-19 and other factors.
Please consider 7 points:
1.) Economic sorrows.
2.) The United Nations written agenda for 2030, a New World Order.
3.) A Global personal Identification No. for every person
and Vaccination of every person on earth.
4.) An International Crypto currency Patent and a cashless society.
5.) Invasion of privacy.
6.) Evil principalities and powers.
7.) The future with God's Son for a 1000 years and solutions given by God.
1.) Economic Sorrows: The lock down of Nations all over the world has now brought us to a point of an extended economic crisis, where even Time Magazine is referring to an “economic depression”.
For instance in the USA:
1.) 36.5 Million American workers have filed for unemployment Insurance payments as of May 20, 2020. To compare this number, at the lowest point of the Great Depression in the 1930s: only about 15 million Americans were unemployed.
2.) Before Covid -19 over half of the American Workers were living from paycheck to paycheck. Right now many are not able to pay rent, nor can many pay their house mortgages, nor can they make their credit card payments. There are pressures on food banks because many people without work are lining up for food.
3.) According to the Washington Post, more than 100,000 U.S. businesses have already shut down, many permanently.
4.) Millions of jobs will be lost with the shut down of Businesses. Many jobs are never coming back.
5.) Examples of this are the bankruptcies of J. C. Penny with 1100 US Stores in 50 States, Neiman Marcus with 42 stores, Reitmans with 576 stores, Pier 1 with 540 stores, and many other smaller businesses. Sears survival is in doubt said CNN News today. Hertz Car Rental may not survive.
6. ) Air Canada has just announced laying off 20 000 workers and many USA Airlines are planning similar layoffs .
7.) The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is now projecting that U.S. GrossDomesticProduct will shrink by 42.8 percent during the second quarter in 2020.
8.) The Real Estate markets are in turmoil. The lockdown, has essentially frozen the commercial real estate market. Buildings that were once used for plazas, restaurants, offices, hotels, spas, and or anything else that is classified non-essential have seen soaring vacancies. Many Malls may not re-open because of vacancies.
9.) Other markets such as restaurants, travel, Hotels, Cruise lines, and Airlines are in great difficulties.
10.) Farmers who have not been able to hire seasonal workers and have had problems in getting their products to market are also suffering. The United Nations are forecasting global food shortages.
11.) Morgan Stanley showed a quarter of all commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) could be on the verge of default. Since many Banks are involved they will be affected by real estate debt, mortgage debt, company debts, personal debt and failed credit card payments.
Bank failures will also come but are delayed or withheld as not to make the population more insecure. When Banks have to declare their reserve requirements for bad debts many will be in deep difficulty.
12.) Even before COVID-19 homelessness had become a massive problem in many of the major cities, of the USA. It is accelerating.
Likewise there will be great economic suffering in most of the countries of the world. Governments globally try to ease the affect on individuals and families, and businesses by printing money, working on a global vaccine and trying to tie us over until the pandemic ceases.
The question is: Will Governments be able to solve the pandemic?
We know from scripture that there will be global leadership at some time-point in the future. This is described in Revelation Chapter 13. Current developments will drive Governments to adopt unification and joint solutions.
There are global conditions affecting our health, there is a reduction in food supply, bad economics, money printing, ecological depletion, and there are political, social, and war issues, all of which scream for solutions and a New World Order.
2.) The United Nations have a written an "Agenda for 2030" - A manifesto for a New World Order
The United Nations adopted the Agenda on September 25, 2015. It calls for (and has been forcefully moving toward) radical plans that will affect everything by the year 2030. The primary goal is unification and global leadership.
The plan sounds reasonable and acceptable but will require control and draconian leadership to be implemented. There is a push towards Global unity and a Global Government and a New World Order. This is not a hidden agenda. It is out in the open. Many globalists over the past 10-20 years (and longer) have openly, publicly used those specific terms. We can research this for ourselves. Here's is the website:
The Plan says: This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind ( This indicates total Government control over every person on the earth. ). The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda.
Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Goal 10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
Goal 11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Goal 13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
Goal 14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Goal 15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
While the Goals sound good, the question is how will all be implemented and what is the cost to liberty?

3.) A Global personal Identification No. for every person and Vaccination of every person on earth.
Bill and Melinda Gates have pledged $10 billion in a call for a decade of vaccines. That is the title of a press release from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation website. Bill Gates is a globalist. His dad was a globalist.
Also, Bill Gates and Mircosoft want every person on earth to have a digital ID ( Identification ) Number, together with vaccinations.
This "ID2020" would likely be given, via a patch or tattoo like an imprint with the vaccination.
Bill Gates (a computer entrepreneur) has been heavily involved with the UN and the World Health Organization/W.H.O. (the global health arm of the UN) for quite some time.
Bill Gates pledges a "decade of vaccines" that culminates in the year 2030, and at the same time funds "ID2020" the Identification mark, with agreement to a manifesto that says (among many other things), "everyone should be able to assert their identity across institutional and national borders, and across time," and that they want to provide "an alternative to individuals lacking safe and reliable access to state-based systems."
The vaccines and digital ID are merging together. But how? Enter quantum dot technology. This new technology is well known, freely discussed in various online tech articles, and is the next step beyond Micro chipping. As I understand it, visible and invisible ink can be tattooed on someone as they are receiving a vaccine.
Embedded in this tattoo is digital technology that verifies they have been immunized with said vaccine. It is funded and initiated by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
If you would like to research "quantum dot vaccine;" and "quantum dot technology" go to.
Also, here are a few websites to help you check ID2020: https://id2020.org/alliance ( Includes Microsoft and the RockefellerFoundation ) and the Vaccines:
4.) The Bill Gates Company Microsoft filed for an International Cryptocurrency Patent: The Number is: WO/2020/060606 -
It is an International patent for a crypto currency system , a cashless global currency via computers, and using body activity data. In layman's terms this means, "a cashless global financial system which could be connected to every person on earth."
Some argue that this could just be a patent for technology which allows for smart phones, smart watches, and other wearable technology to connect with a cashless payment system. Of course, that is one logical application. But, when we look at this in view of end-time Bible prophecy, one can't help but consider it an emerging technology which could connect every human on earth to a database and a cashless system.
A coming World Leader, described as a beast in the Bible in Revelation 13, will economically control every person on earth i.e. you can't buy or sell without the 666 mark. This requires a data-base driven digital tracking capability, and a mark "on" the skin.
Many have suggested the the Patent stands for World Order, 2020, 666--which is of course, the specific number mentioned in the passage in the Bible in Revelation 13 regarding the mark of the beast. Coincidence? There are 3 possibilities:
Possibility 1--The number generated was completely random. What are the chances that a technology that closely mirrors the biblical mark of the beast would have three sixes in a row?
Possibility 2--The patent applicants requested this specific number because it has inherent meaning. I tend to believe this is the case. When connected to someone as globally powerful as Bill Gates, this is not farfetched. And if this number was requested, it obviously has meaning to those who filed the global patent.
Possibility 3--The patent applicants may have requested this specific number to poke fun at Christians and to intentionally get Bible prophecy teachers all bent out of shape. If this is the case, it still fits into endtime Bible prophecy when mockers will abound. (Jude 1:18 " How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.") It raises additional concerns.
I am also using now some cashless society comments from Britt Gillette , author of the free ebook Coming to Jesus as well as the books Signs of the Second Coming & Racing Toward Armageddon.
China is currently testing a state-sponsored crypto currency through internal pilot tests in four different Chinese cities. Known as the DCEP (Digital Currency Electronic Payment), current expectations are for a late 2020 rollout to the general public. The aim is to eliminate the use of Chinese paper currency and replace it with the new Chinese crypto currency, giving China insight into every transaction DCEP is involved in - whether or not the transaction in question takes place in China.
And again, China isn't the only nation interested in entering the crypto currency business. In February 2019, Iran launched a gold-backed crypto currency for internal bank transactions. In the second phase of their plan, they intend to make it available for use by individual citizens.
In May 2019, CNN reported on Russia's plans to implement a gold-backed cryptocurrency.
And, in September, North Korea announced plans to create a gold-backed cryptocurrency with the purpose of bypassing U.S. and international sanctions. Authoritarian regimes love the idea of their own crypto currencies. And once you study the implications, it's easy to understand why.
The end of paper money and its replacement with government-sponsored crypto currency will put unlimited power at the fingertips of government leaders. Not only does crypto currency offer a way to permanently record every financial transaction, but it will also be able to track where you go and what you do. It will track the websites you visit and make note of who your friends are.
While most of this information is already available through tracking of credit and debit cards, mobile phones, and social media profiles, a state-sponsored crypto currency will provide unfettered access to this information. It will create a closed, government-controlled economic system where you'll be dependent on the government's crypto currency to pay for all your needs.
If the government decides they don't like you, they can turn off your access and freeze you out of the banking system. They'll be able to decide what you can and can't buy. They'll be able to tell you where you can and can't go. In essence, they'll have complete control over your life. And while I'd like to think we can take measures to avoid it, the rise of government-sponsored crypto currency is inevitable.
Coming Soon... The End of Paper Money
Advocates for a national crypto currency say the USA Government payment process during Covid-19 could have been faster if every citizen had a "digital wallet" and the government could simply deposit the crypto currency with the push of a button. In the aftermath of the corona virus, they'll push for such a system.
Do you feel most people will oppose it? Think again. Adoption of such a system will be quick and easy. The government will simply launch a campaign to "claim your digital wallet." To incentivize people to do so, they'll likely provide an initial deposit of $10,000 (or $20,000, $30,000, or whatever amount it takes to get people to take action).
Once everyone is onboard, they'll eliminate paper currency and other options for payment of goods and services. The result will be a government-sponsored crypto currency-only economic system. One the government controls from top to bottom.
World governments won't have a choice with current developments and in the long-term. A day will come when a Government will decide to eliminate all physical currency, and all economic transactions will go electronic. The replacement will be either a series of national crypto currencies or a single global crypto currency.
The Coming Global Economic System
None of this should surprise us. Long ago, the Book of Revelation foretold the establishment of an end times economic system eerily similar to a world dominated by a government-sponsored crypto currency. The Bible says a time will come when a global dictator will require everyone on earth to receive a mark on the right hand or the forehead (Revelation 13:16).
Without this mark, the people of the world will be unable to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). How will this work? It remains to be seen. But the worldwide rush to create government-sponsored crypto currencies provides us with a glimpse as to how such a system might work.
The Bible says the Antichrist will rule a global government (Revelation 13:7). In order to control who can buy and who can sell, the Antichrist will need a system capable of tracking every transaction on earth. He'll need a way to monopolize all financial transactions and a way to kick people out of the system if they don't do his bidding. A global government-controlled crypto currency will provide him with such a system.
5.) Invasion of homes and privacy:
There is a proposed bill in the USA congress that would allow contact tracing to--and Covid-19 testing at--your house ("and for other purposes" ) by various funded entities.
The Bill is H.R. 6666--
Nation wide contact tracing would be permitted for Covid-19 and for other purposes. If this USA Bill passes it appears to give unlimited powers. Those doing the tracing would have access to every home without a search warrant. This would give the USA Government Communistic like powers to control its citizens.
Invasion of homes is already practiced in communist and other dictatorial countries in the World.
6.) Evil Principalities and powers.
Ephesians 6:12 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
We now have the prospects of economic devastation, more government controls, likely oppressive, possibly food riots, civil unrest, social upheaval, and the World Health Organization which is predicting a second and third wave of the Corona Virus . This would require further Global lock down. There is much increased fear.
Satan uses lies as he is the father of lies. He also uses fear as a primary weapon. He wants to especially keep Christians from sharing their faith and from assembling together.
Communist countries have used fear to control their populations. We see the development in China where every person is being evaluated on their individual support and allegiance to the Government. Mass meetings are forbidden.
Others such as Hitler used mass indoctrination and mind control methods in speech to move the German masses to allegiance. However, when men were called to join the army and go to war and they refused, the death penalty was declared over them and carried out. There was iron control. My Father had to go to war. He was shot by the Russians when I was born.
Evil abounds and Jesus said:"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." Many of the atrocities in the world are unimaginable for us yet they are taking place before our eyes. They are happening. May I refer to mutilating children for sex change operations in North America? How horrified God must be and what is being done to His creation.
Here is an example of a mind altering vaccine:
Scientists made a presentation For a 'Vaccine' called ("FUNVAX") at the Pentagon / DOD , against Religious Fundamentalism. They added and changed Genes in a vaccine to alter DNA, and the area of the brain that expresses faith. They showed slices of the brain. They say its use would be mainly for extremists who want to blow up people. Of course a wider use is possible and likely when people in power declare fundamental Christians dangerous.
We wrestle with unseen forces of evil, the devil. So our weapons against him cannot be carnal but must be spiritual. We do have mighty weapons in God for pulling down strongholds. Suppose the remnant of Christians combines in prayer and fasting? Suppose Churches were to combine in prayer and fasting? We could have a mighty Revival before all comes to pass.
So what does all this mean?
Most of the above things are in the News regularly. All are available through public information. Jesus said to the Pharisees: You hypocrites , you know how to interpret the signs of the weather, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. Are we as a Christian Church like that? We cannot interpret the signs of the times?
We are fast approaching a time the prophets warned about. We're in the midst of a global pandemic . We are in the end times. Israel is back in the land (Jeremiah 23:7-8). The Jewish people are back in Jerusalem . The Gospel is being preached throughout the world electronically. Some tribes still need the Bible in their own languages. (Matthew 24:14). The Prophet Daniel said many shall run to and fro, and travel and knowledge abounds.
We are in the end times. Sorrows have started globally. The tribulation, the Antichrist, and global government aren't far behind.
7.) The future with God's Son.
While it looks like the world is falling apart, every Christian should be filled with the knowledge of the Bible and the Peace of God, knowing that He is still in control. We are safe and secure in His arms and hands for eternity. We may experience sorrows and persecution but it is only for a while. We know how it all ends. Jesus is coming soon. He will set up a 1000 year Kingdom on earth and there will be wonderful things happening on earth and there is a wonderful long term future.
Jesus the Messiah will reign from Jerusalem, the coming world's capital, and Nations will no longer learn war :
In Isaiah 2:3-4 AMPC it says: 3 And many people shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 4 And He shall judge between the nations and shall decide [disputes] for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
This is the future but we must deal with the present now:
The birth pains described by Jesus in Matthew 24 are increasing with frequency and intensity--globally--right before our eyes. We have yet to see the full effects of the virus upon the world's health, wealth, freedoms, and fall out.
Solutions given by God:
Do Christians know the signs of the times? Do Christians know what God says? The one missing major ingredient in the top level discussions is the spiritual affect and the predictions by God in the Bible and the forecasts in the Book of Revelation.
The World Governments see no other solutions than to implement control and implement draconian powers together with medical research, and printing money to overcome some of the current developments and to prevent wide scale social disorder and people uprising.
Most do not speak about the Spiritual Factors that would solve the crisis, including most Churches and Pastors. Has God not given to us the solution for the pandemic? God has permitted all and there are major economic affects waiting in dark clouds in the sky over us. God will bring the world to its knees in the Bible in the Book of Revelation. The sorrows are starting globally. So what is the Antidote?
What are the solutions? Would God perhaps be upset by us in the World ?
Should we not say to the Lord: You have given us a reminder and an antidote to return to You and You have given us the remedy for Covid 19. You listed for us curses and blessings in the Bible. Then you told us in the Bible: If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attentive unto the prayer that is made in this place.
Should we not confess our sins and the sins of our families and our nation? Like Daniel, should we not confess that we have failed Him our God?
We have failed to love Him with our first love. We have failed to see God's heart and what He has instructed us to do. We are failing to draw near to God the way we should. We have failed in reading His Word, we have failed in compassionate prayer, we have failed to display the joy of the Lord. We have failed in our families. We have failed in our witness to other people about Jesus, God's Son. We have gone to the house of fear leaving the house of faith. We have chosen unbelief over believing in Him.
Now we must repent and ask God to forgive us for unbelief. Jesus called unbelief a greater sin than Sodom in the Gospels. Are we not grieved ? Should God forgive our sins without doing what He says? Could we cry out together: Lord help us repent and change our ways, so that the nation in which we live can begin to return to you. Restore to us the way of your salvation. Restore to us the years that the locusts have eaten. We bow before you in shame and penitence. We confess our despicable sin of the slaughter of innocents. We confess the despicable sin of mutilating some of our children with a sex change. We have shed innocent blood throughout our country. We have sacrificed our helpless and defenseless children on the altar of the false gods and Human Secularism. Please lift the veil of deception that blinds our eyes to the atrocities of our sins. Help us to embrace Your wisdom and not man's "wisdom." Open our eyes to the suffering that we have caused and give us a contrite, renewed heart. We pray that You "set the captives free" and release us and our children from the bondage of depraved iniquity. Please heal our hearts and souls by cleansing us first and then cleanse our land of all wicked sins. Won't you come Lord, won't you restore us? Won't you revive us?
For those that have never repented and asked Christ Jesus to forgive and save them, today is the day of Salvation. I beg you, repent of your sins. Jesus will in no wise cast you out. You can have a new life today.
Here are prayer points to consider for Christians:
- Repent and Pray for cleansing of any besetting sins.
- Repent of fear and unbelief.
Fear in the world, economic disasters, illnesses, fear in men, and fear in what is happening today; It is unbelief and therefore it is a great sin. Unbelief denied 600 000 men, except 2 men, the promised Land . Unbelief was given by Jesus as a greater sin than Sodom in Matthew 10:15 and Matthew 11:24. Perhaps you will pray and repent of unbelief? Perhaps you will move from the House of fear to the House of Faith?
- After cleansing: Pray for filling of the Holy Spirit Luke 11:13 anew - you need higher help. You need assurance. We all need higher help for Love, Joy and Peace and sharing our Faith, and the Gospel. We should be ready for--not just a new normal, but a new-world-order normal. Patiently serve Jesus and others, and share the Gospel as far and wide as we can while there is time. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
- Pray that we might awaken and understand the New World Order in progress, but without fear.
- Pray that what the devil intends for evil and for fear, would be turned around and becomes an opportunity for you and me to shine for the Lord, and do His will.
- Pray for the awakening of Christians and a great Revival of the remnant.
- Pray for the Awakening of Churches and Pastors in North America and that they would preach the antidote and solutions God gives for pandemics in the Bible.
- Pray for Pastors and Churches in North America not just to preach comfort and protection to their flock but to equip their flock to deal with a new World Order that is developing before our eyes.
- Pray for the equipping of the Saints and that we would have patience and perseverance during persecution.
- Pray that you and I would correctly prepare personally with His help for the days ahead. Be ye holy says the Lord. ( What will it be? Fear and hiding or shining? )
Prayer of Repentance:
Heavenly Father, Almighty God, Maker of Heaven and Earth, Creator and Sustainer of Life, we pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ as we come to You to praise you and acknowledge your greatness. You the Lord is our Light and our Salvation—whom shall we fear ? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of our life—of whom shall we be afraid?
Yet Lord we find ourselves in the middle of Covid 19. Lord you have given us the remedy for Covid 19. You listed for us curses and blessings in the Bible. Then you told us in the Bible: If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
You said: Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attentive unto the prayer that is made in this place.
Lord we confess our sins and the sins of our family and our nation. Like Daniel, we confess that we have failed You. We have failed you to love you with our first love. We have failed to see your heart and how much we have hurt You. We have failed with what you want us to do. We are failing to draw near to You the way we should. We have failed in reading your Word, we have failed in compassionate prayer, we have failed to display your joy of the Lord. We have failed in our witness to other people. We have gone to the house of fear leaving the house of faith. Forgive us for our unbelief. Lord Jesus You called unbelief a greater sin than Sodom. We are grieved and we ask You to forgive our sins. Help us repent and change our ways, so that the nation in which we live can begin to live out Your blessed Plan. Restore to us the ways of your salvation. Restore to us the years that the locusts have eaten. We bow before you in shame and penitence. We confess our despicable sin of the slaughter of innocents. We confess the despicable sin of mutilating our children with sex changes. We have shed innocent blood throughout our country. We have sacrificed our helpless and defenseless children on the altar of the false god and Human Secularism. Please lift the veil of deception that blinds our eyes to the atrocities of our sins. Help us to embrace Your wisdom and not man's "wisdom." Open our eyes to the suffering that we have caused You and give us a contrite, renewed heart. We pray that You "set the captives free" and release us and our children from the bondage of depraved iniquity. Please heal our hearts and souls by cleansing us first and then cleanse our land of all wicked sins.
Draw us nearer, nearer to you Lord ( song ).
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
Consecrate me now to Th service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
We pray this in the Name above all names, Your Name, the only Name under Heaven and Earth by which men might be saved, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, we pray in your Name Lord Jesus, Amen.
