Today’s topic is on the awakening of churches.
I have some friends who are truck drivers. A few weeks ago, when I was preparing for this sermon, I overheard some of them talking amongst themselves. One of my friends said, while he was on the road, he saw a lot of people carrying ammunition and travelling with guns, because he was driving for work across the
United States from California
He said that he saw a lot of mobs travelling, he was also worried they would
come and rob his car. He said to me on the phone that we, Canadians should get
ready to protect ourselves too, in case of riots breaking out. And look at
today’s Michigan North America, it is so different from
how we’ve known it before. The media is filled with news about murders every
day. If not that, then it is something else that has to do with terrorist
attacks. Crisis is everywhere.
Us, now on the other hand, though sitting in our seats at church, we always avoid talking about Jesus’ return. But listen, it is near. The day of Lord Christ’s return is near. Yet, we avoid talking about this, because more of less, we have this fear within us. We fear to talk about the end of the days, because if we do, people might start leaving church. We all seem to find ourselves at ease at church, but little do we know that the end of the days is near. We are in deception thinking that everything around us is just fine, but in reality, the truth is, unless you walk with God, then nothing, I repeat, unless you walk with God Lord, nothing would be as fine as you think!
Not only emotionally, but also spiritually, we will suffer from depression (the wicked will become ever so more vicious, and the righteous will become more righteous). Why’s that? Well, because those ones have never came to understand the true warnings. They don’t know what’s about to happen to them and their family, and yet to their churches. I’ve always been hearing that as long as we believe in God, trust God, as long as we fulfill those, everything else can be taken out of the equation. This sounds good right? But it is truly naïve. Just by pure belief and submission, there is really then nothing else we need to do? Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” In fact, we need them both, faith and preparation. We cannot say that all of our days on earth are null and void, because they are directly related to our life, the promised, and the destined. You have to understand the importance of them!
Hebrews 11:7 tells us that, “By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.”It did not just say here that Noah needed not to do anything because of his pure faith, he had to build an ark. Likewise, Joseph, being warned in his dreams about the 7 years of famine and the 7 years of harvest had to prepare himself as well. If it weren’t for preparation, you see, none of them would have been able to survive. And this is very important. Not only would you have to be able to receive the warning, but you’d also have to act upon it. If it weren’t for the warning of God, his family, his church and himself would all be in crisis. So we see that because of faith, because of the warning Noah has received, he’d prepared an ark, allowing his family to be saved in the crisis. On the other hand, Joseph was able to save himself and his family because of his faith.
Now after all this, if all you knew how to say was, “Oh God will be preparing everything, God will lay out the way for me, all we need to do is to believe”, then I tell you, that is very ignorant. Indeed, I don’t mean to say that believing and praying are not important, they are! But even more so, action is more important! We are right now at a very important turning point, unlike 20 years ago where we had the luxury of these 20 years elapsing, but what now?
I saw in my dream where I was taken high above the skies. That night in my vision, I saw the current status of churches these days. In a church the size of 200 to 300 people, only 10 people were chosen to rise with the Lord. And the others will continue on with their lives, eating, drinking and carrying on as usual, unaware of what’s about to come. Luke 17:28 tells us that, “It was the same in the days of
Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling,
planting and building.” Jesus said, “It will be just like this on the day the
Son of Man is revealed.” But yes, there is nothing wrong with eating and
drinking and enjoying ourselves. If only we had 100 years to live, 500 hundred,
or more…but unfortunately, that is not the case. And most people are unaware of
that, of the days that we live in now. Now, how many churches, we ask
ourselves, are suffering in this very circumstance?
I will tell you of another story of a lady in
Her name was Kelly Peng. Kelly’s travelled to a couple of countries where she
witnessed Christians being prosecuted. Before the Cultural Revolution, Chinese
Christians were being told that they will rise with the Lord before the day of
the tribulation. However, not soon after, the tribulation had begun. Even till now,
there isn’t an exact calculation of when will the tribulation be. It was
estimated that millions of Christians were prosecuted during the Cultural
Revolution. However, among those people, those who were warned by God got
saved. A Chinese pastor later on told Kelly that the large number of sacrifice was due to the lack of preparation in
crisis, instead Chinese Christians were simply told to await the coming of Lord
Jesus. The pastor said to Kelly to go out there and make sure that
disciples knew how to stand in and face time of crisis. Stand firm that we may
not stumble. Holland
As for those Christians who were prosecuted, they blamed their churches and held their pastors responsible for not letting them on to knowing the truth. I think yes, as for some pastors, we are ought to be deemed responsible for not being able to share of word of truth. Jesus might well return while we were eating and drinking. Not everything will be fine, there will be difficult times ahead. And you will only be prepared if you had received warning prior to that, hence Matthews 25:6, “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’” Here’s the question for us today, are you the bridesmaid who is alert at night, or the one who does not have the oil to the lamp?
At the world’s last phase, we have come to witness the last blood moon eclipse. Have you noticed its warning for us from the Bible? The 8 occurrences of the lunar eclipse have all taken place throughout 2014 and 2015 in a total of 4 series, with the last one taking place September 28, 2015. That would have been the very last one in the Jewish calendar or the year of the Jubilee. Scientific research tells us the next one would be 600 years later! Now, where would the reference of that be? Revelations 6:12-13 says, “ I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.”
Now, taking a step back, a lot of church leaders are opposed to teachings such as observing the stars and the constellations. They want people to focus on the teachings of God’s words, don’t be distracted by the stars and formation of the moon eclipse. Well let me share with you this scripture in Psalm 19:1-4, The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.” If you still think now we should just focus on the plain teaching by Words and ignore these celestial signs, then you’re ignoring God’s words, then you can carry on with your own eating and drinking.
Not sure if you all know, not too long ago (this was in the news), when Jesus Christ was born, there was a great astronomical phenomenon, the appearing of the star of
in August 2016. On August 27, 2016,
a great phenomenon appeared in the skies, the Biblical star of Bethlehem . It was also the celestial
phenomenon of the overlapping of two major stars, Bethlehem and Jupiter, each travelling in their
own trajectories and missing each other by an acute angle of 0.07 degrees. The
overlapping of the two stars in the sky almost appeared to be what can be
mistaken by the naked eye, a perfect unison. And not too far from these two,
there as the King star. Did you know that this occurrence could be so rare that
the next one is predicted to be in 2065! This ‘perfect overlap’ of Venice and Jupiter is a
phenomenon later explained by astronomers ‘the Star of Bethlehem’. This is also
what according to the Bible, described as ‘the Star of Bethlehem’. Now the
progression of the two stars travelling in its trajectory to create this effect
dated back to June 30, 2015, and finally was able to meet each other on August
27, 2016. Venice
The most recent occurrence prior to this was in year BC2 to BC3. Two thousand years ago, Magi from the east went to
to see the Star of Bethlehem, hence Jesus. By scientific definition, the
forming of the Star of Bethlehem was the first appearance of Jerusalem and Jupiter. Shining brightly in the
skies, people did not even need a telescope to be able to see it. Not only that, as the Gregorian year 2016
is also known as the Year of Julibee in the Jewish calendar, 5775, it marks the
return of the Star of Bethlehem to be even more significant! Yet, we are
anticipating that the return of Jesus Christ would be just as glorious as his
birth was! Venice
Luke 21:25-28, There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
All the stars in heaven are proclaiming his glory. The book of Revelation is filled with such scripture, describing the majesty of heaven and the constellations in them. Chapter 12:1 in Revelation tells us that, “Now a great sign appeared in heaven”. Now this other thing I want to share with you is the observations from the skies by some astronomy fanatics. Let us watch this video, about the King star. As we all know, Jupiter is the largest star in the whole galaxy, it is also the sign representing Jesus Christ. As you see in the video, the progression of the star is slowly moving towards a group of stars called the Virgo’s womb, exactly like its name, which looks like a woman’s womb at birth a child. On December 23, 2016, Jupiter travelled in its counter trajectory direction towards the group of Virgin stars and remained in its ‘Womb’ for 42 weeks, appearing as if the group of Virgo stars was ‘pregnant’ with ‘Jupiter’. At its full ‘pregnancy’, the ‘Womb’ will deliver its ‘baby’, then beginning Jupiter’s continued trajectory passing the Sun, and positioning itself right above the Moon, accompanied by the 12 stars (composed of the 9 stars forming Leo, along with Venus, Mars, and Mercury) dazzling right above as a Crown on top. This is projected to take place all on September 23, 2017.
This kind of astronomical phenomenon had only occurred once 5932 years ago, which was B.C. 3915, August 5. It was around the time of Adam and Eve’s days. And this astronomical phenomenon perfectly coincided with the Biblical description of the vision in Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation. The exact scripture tells of how the King Star will enter the Virgin’s womb, remaining for 42 weeks during its ‘pregnancy’ and prepares itself for ‘delivery’. Not anywhere else does the King Star remain this long in one place during it trajectory in the skies, and not anytime else does it also remain in one place for this long (for a period of more than 10 months).
Keep in mind also that this year is the year of the Jubilee, the year marking 50th anniversary of
in 1967. I need to mention the significant timing of Jupiter’s trajectory
progression now, as soon after this year, 2017 will be the 5777th
year of Jewish calendar, and following that, 2018 will be the 70th
anniversary of Jerusalem ’s
Constitution. This is quite remarkable, isn’t it, this phenomenon of Jupiter? Israel
Revelation 12:1-6, “A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.”
This is describing the movement of the Virgo stars (apart from this, it of course has its spiritual significance). This group of stars will undergo another series of movement, which will attribute to greater celestial events.
Now let me tell you, there’s one thing that can be done to change this. Any ideas? Well, that’d be through praying. To pray to prevent this, as how it was to
. If this is not sufficient proof to
serve as explanation that we’re in the last phase of our era, shall we wait
another 6000 years then? By then, we’d be convinced? After seeing the unnatural
phenomenon described in Chapter 12 of Revelation. The series of events in Nineveh Syria
is the living proof also of demise of
in Isaiah 17. Likewise, the Arab war is a confirmation of events in Psalm 83,
and so on will the northern wars serve as confirmation for Ezekiel 38.
These are current events happening right now, while we’re waiting for the
return of Lord Jesus. They are drawing us closer and closer to the coming of
Lord Jesus Christ, He is near! Damascus
Revelation 12:4, “Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth,…” Truth is, without knowing the spiritual connotation of this scripture, we can verify its validity by simply looking up into the sky and find these signs ourselves. So what is this mysterious sign in the scripture? In the study of astronomy, it has come to known in recent years the existence of Planet X – a ninth planet. Though mysterious, it has been suggested that the Planet X is powerful enough to travel towards earth’s orbit, with a tail of trailing comets. It was said that its mass could be powerful enough to strike earth and cause mass extinctions. Its tail is what resembles a dragon’s tail in this case. Researchers have found that the Planet X was also the cause of the flood during Noah’s time, for 150 days, as well as the 10 plagues during Moses’ time. This will also bring forth the two witnesses dressed in sackcloth (Rev 11:3-4), with of course the precise calculation of the occurrences of each natural disaster. In any case, let us leave that in the hands of God. But what I want to point out here is that these scientific evidences are the confirmations of the Lord’s doing.
The NASA has discovered the Planet X since 1982. It is known to be 5 times as massive as earth, which makes its magnetic force just as far greater than it is that of earth.
Planet X is also known as Nibiru, the extinction planet, the red dragon, the destroyer, etc. It travels in the outer orbit of the Sun, posing a massive threat to earth’s extinction. Its large mass coupled by its powerful magnetic force, it has caused the earth to tilt slightly outwards from its original orbital trajectory. It is not until3600 years later since the plagues of Moses’ time that Nibiru makes its appearance again. The Planet X (also known as the destroyer) is a Dark Star containing huge quantities of iron. Due to its advancing approach to earth, its iron particles and molecular ions inevitably make contact with the earth’s surface, infiltrating into our water sources, diluting them into a red colour. It also causes several other effects:
1. Changing the earth’s rotational axis
2. The acceleration of two magnetic fields, causing disruptions in seasons. We may see a week of summer, the next week being winter. Volcanic eruptions, droughts, heat, forest fire, earthquakes, submarine volcanic eruptions, sea eruptions, displacements of continents (subsidence…), etc.
3. New ice ages, large floods
4. Natural extinction
5. Human extinction, wiping out two thirds of world’s population
No one knows exactly what’s gone on during Noah’s time, when the great flood happened. (Video) The Soviet Union has recorded that the Noah’s flood was due to the collision of the solar system with another unknown planet, Nibiru (which is what we know now Planet X), causing the natural disasters that followed.
In the solar system, the Earth orbits around the Sun, while the Earth has its own rotational axis itself. In the same fashion, in the X solar system, Planet X orbits around what’s named a “Dark Sun” called “Nemesis”, which is also known as a orbital system on its own, the X system. The Dark Sun or Nemesis comes across earth once every 2600 years, and Planet X every 3657 years. Planet X is a very massive and powerful planet found in the universe. It has its own oval-shaped orbital trajectory to travel on between the solar system and the two Suns.
The occurrence of the flood that lasted for 150 days during Noah’s era is directly related to the orbital activities of Planet X. Scientific studies tell us that because Planet X travels on its oval-shaped orbit adjacent to the solar system, it can cross the earth’s orbit at certain points, and this trajectory course takes exactly 150 days. This is confirmed by the flood in the Bible which lasted for 150 days. It provides also evidence for the existence of the four seasons. Since Planet X travels with its trailing comet stars causing meteor showers on earth, it explains why the earth is tilted. Because of the impact of its magnetic force due to its mass, it causes the earth’s tilt of 23.5 degrees. It is also due to this tilt that we have the four seasons, and yet before Noah’s days, the earth did not see seasons (left alone rain).
Chapter 12 of Revelation shows us that we’d yet be able to witness another occurrence of these celestial events in September 2017. What then follows? Indeed, the confirmation of Chapter 13 that follows in Revelation – the beasts. We see by now the decentralization of the European countries, what then, well I tell you, everything has already been prepared for us in heaven.
In one of David Pawson’s sermons, he said I’d rather tell people to prepare themselves for the great tribulation than easing them that there will be none, then in the end, they’d be unprepared for it when it comes. When tribulation comes, God’s judgment follows, including onto the ones he’s already chosen,
Canada, US, Australia,
you ask? Because they are the countries that have forsaken the Lord, they have
forsaken the commandments God’s has given them to keep. Who, then, is
responsible for their fall? Great Britain
It is the churches! The churches are responsible for this. What you say! The churches? Yes, the churches, it is not the fault of disciples, not their government, it is the churches. We are the light of the world, says the Bible, John 8:12 says, “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’” Again in Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” If a light does not shine, “It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot (Matthew 5:13). This is exactly what’s happening in
The time is running out, judgment will begin from the house of the Lord. Yet many churches are unprepared for what’s about the come. Since 2009, the Holy Spirit has been working to separate out Lord’s “goats” from His “lambs”. We have been led to start ministries in the forms of family fellowships, naming ourselves as churches in the last era of the day. We’ve started to congregate in this way thinking it will help us to avoid the last hour of tribulation, at the same time that we’re been growing in numbers, we’re also experiencing some difficulties in implementing changes.
According to Chapter 7 of Revelation, the crisis will take place in
, followed by the revival of
the Jewish. In Revelation 14, this wide spread revival has extended to many
other nations, we can see this today in the news about the middle eastern.
Slowly but surely, all nations, all cultures and all people will start to enter
into God’s kingdom, their numbers far greater than what we can predict. It is
only the beginning. Our priority is to prepare ourselves for what’s to come and
how to prepare for it. Our job is to teach the churches how to survive these
crises, and how to stay equipped. Now you all, get up, and lay down your
burdens and your fear, because it is the time for preparation. God’s spirit is
doing great work! Israel
There is one thing we need clear understanding on, that is God is love, and He does all out of His love. Even including in what He is about to bring to this world at the end of the days. And when the judgment day comes, it is for us to turn to Him. We have to know that. Yes, God has everlasting grace, just as how He was to people of Noah’s time. His work was delayed and pushed back time after time. Genesis 5:27 says that, “Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.”Enoch knows that the flood was to come after the death of his son, Methuselah. He could not and did not let this poor person die, not before the flood comes. Methuselah, hence, became the longest lived person on earth. This was all because of the grace of God, because shortly after he died, only then had come the flood. God has timing for everything.
It is about to come, the judgment day. We are in the tranquil before the storm. Revelation 8:1 tells us of the “silence in heaven for about half an hour”, that the sinners will indulge in, what seems to be a surreal moment of appeasement and tranquility. No one on earth will know what would about to come, they will even mock upon Christians who held strong to their faith. The people will carry on their disbelief in God, ignorant of the great tribulation. But it will be at that moment, it will come. It will come without warning, without signs or precautions from the heaven…
So let us not test God, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Don’t underestimate either his patience, He is waiting for until the end of the days when the world cannot contain all the sins. He will then give no more warnings, as Revelation 12 is the last sign that we can receive through celestial warnings. It has far greater significance than the Star of
We are witnessing this year for the last time the return of the Star of
Bethlehem, regardless of if you belonged to Christianity, Catholic, Orthodox,
Protestant, or new Christians. This is
for everyone to see. Bethlehem
Two thousand years ago, only Magi of the east knew of the birth of Jesus Christ, by their observation of the Star of Bethlehem. Although it might have appeared to them all, some might have missed it, you might have missed it, others might not even have known about it until they died. What a tragedy then would that be. Though it has been all recorded in the Bible, the people have missed it, in fact most have. The history is about to be repeated.
It is clear that the celestial warnings are about to come next year as well according to Revelation 12. It is of such great importance, do not, I ask of you, miss it! It is our responsible to carry on the knowledge and pay forward the truth. Then, it will be up to them to decide whether to believe, but they cannot say by then that they’ve never heard of such things, because we are the watchmen of God.
Revelation 2:7, “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Ezekiel 33:5-6, “Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.’”
Revelation 17:14, “They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” The scripture describes the few requirements of a faithful follower: 1) to be called upon 2) to be chosen 3) be faithful 4) to triumph – only those who have these properties will be given to wear the fine linen, bright and clean. (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.) – Revelation 19:8. It is the time to look within us and reflect whether we meet all of these qualifications?
There will be internal debates within us. Doubts will fill our hearts and continue to spread throughout churches. Words will confuse God’s people, breaking the promises that God has already given to its people. Remember the 12 spies who’ve went into the
10 of them returned saying we are like grasshoppers
when we compare ourselves to them, we cannot do it. God then said, I will bring
you to it, they replied that they didn’t
believe in Him, they decided to go back, they wandered in the wilderness
for 40 years, until they died there. The people did in the end go to heaven,
but they were never been able to fulfill
the purpose God had for them. Let the history not repeat, not on you and
me. We have to be strong in belief and walk with God. We need to have faith
that He will guide us, only if we submit to Him. We must learn to clearly hear the voice of God, and ask for His
spiritual intellect, so that He may lead us through the flow of the Holy Spirit,
into an era of new Promised Land. land
