The darkness has descended over America. In the ninth plague, Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven, and there was a thick darkness over the land of Egypt. The darkness was so total that the Egyptians had to feel their way around.
In similar fashion but in the spiritual sense, what we’ve seen so far this year are evil leaders blindly trying to feel their way forward. And it’s not pretty to watch. Spiritual blindness has enveloped our beloved nation like a thick oppressive cloud.
After centuries of learning the ways of God is this country, the ignorance on display concerning God, His Word, His Principles, His Gospel, His Love, and His Truth is stunning. It’s grievous. Surely heaven must weep for those people that God loves and for whom Jesus died who now display such blindness and deception.
If you are also standing on the truth of God’s Word, I suspect you are caught up in a similar battle–with family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and maybe even other church members. Jesus gives us the reason for the battle when He says,
“Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come to the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”
Take The Jab,
Or Lose Your Job!
September 13, 2021
Joe Biden just bypassed Congress and bypassed the Constitution to mandate vaccines for 2/3 of America’s workforce.
It may not be the mark-of-the beast but it’s helping to set the stage and is a major overreach taking advantage of innocent citizens.
Biden is out of control and behaving like a dictator.
Now he has issued a tyrannical decree that will affect the lives of tens of millions of Americans.
The new mandates require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week.
Companies that fail to comply face fines of $14,000 per violation, Mr. Biden said.
Americans like you and I need to fight back now, or our freedoms will evaporate completely.
Many of our friends who attend Focus On The End Times classes and gather at churches across the upstate are affected by the new order. They are concerned about losing their job. All are patriotic Americans who need our prayers, encouragement and support.
FOTET Prayer List
If you are threatened by the new mandates, as so many of our brothers and sisters in America, we would like to add your name to a prayer list at our upcoming class next Tuesday. We will make the list available on our website.
Liberty Counsel – Religious Exemption
In many cases, you may be able to sign a religious exemption excluding you from the mandates. For more information about this, I would encourage you to go to Liberty Counsel and watch the VACCINE EXEMPTION GUIDE VIDEO. HERE
There is a lot of helpful information on this sight including how to ask your employer and a sample letter requesting an exemption.
The latest mandate announcement makes it more imperative that we learn how to discern the signs of the times as Jesus taught (Matthew 16:1-3).
Prophetic Events Trending Now
It’s happening fast! Too fast to track!
As God’s shaking and quaking continues, here are the dramatic events now unfolding that we’ll be discussing in our upcoming class.
I never thought I’d see the destabilization of America, the transformation of the Middle East and coinciding prophecy signs coming so fast!
Powerful, trendsetting movements are unfolding that are interconnected to one other.
7 Trends To Watch
1. The Rapid Decline of America is signaling the soon return of Jesus and warning we are now living under the shadow of the 7-year Tribulation.
2. The U.S. is dramatically turning away from Israel and dragging America into the path of God’s wrath!
State Dept Expands Iran Team Days After Israel Asked Biden to Abandon Nuke Talks.
The Biden administration is expanding the team dedicated to renegotiating the Iran deal, just days after Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett urged the United States to back out of negotiations.
3. Lies. Lies… and more Lies!
The Biden administration spent months assuring Congress that the U.S.-trained Afghan forces would be able to forestall a Taliban takeover when American troops left the country on a pre-determined deadline.
That assessment was proven wrong days after the withdrawal, when the Taliban overran the Afghan National Army and seized control of Kabul, forcing a chaotic evacuation of U.S. personnel and allies.
Billion-Dollar Memory Hole: The Biden Administration Scrubbing Federal Websites of Lists of Weapons It Left Behind while the Taliban Parades Captured US Military Equipment
President Joe Biden waived a mandate in June that would have forced the Pentagon to provide a detailed report to Congress about the risks of leaving Afghanistan.
Under the federal statute, the administration was barred from reducing troops in Afghanistan below 2,000 without first briefing Congress about the expected impact on U.S. counterterrorism operations and the risk to American personnel.
More Lies. Biden waived the mandate in June, arguing that providing this information to Congress could undermine “the national security interests of the United States.”
4. Just after the fall of Kabul, the Taliban started turning up in U.S. uniforms, carrying U.S. rifles, and riding in U.S. vehicles. They started showing off a Black Hawk helicopter they’d captured.
It soon became clear that when the Taliban overran the Afghan military, it also snapped up all of that military’s gear. It also grabbed all of the gear the U.S. military left behind at Bagram Air Base and other posts as it hastily retreated.
Joe Biden insists he and his high command, including generals who wear medal clusters so enormous you could serve a pizza on them, planned for all this.
But did they?
Did they plan all along to arm the Taliban?
It sure appears so! That would be my conclusion!
One question now is: Did they plan for the ongoing cover-up?
Forbesreports that the State Department is telling other federal agencies to scrub their websites of lists of weapons the U.S. provided the Afghan military over the years.
China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and the terrorist organizations of Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Harem, Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda and all the rest, now want to cozy up to the Taliban to purchase weapons. Thanks to the Pentagon!
And one day, not too far in the future, some of these weapons will be lying on the blood soaked valley floor of Megiddo after the Battle of Armageddon.
5. Washington has decided to cast its lot with the Palestinian terrorists and the mullah’s of Iran showing them favor despite knowing their murderous hatred and evil plans to exterminate Israel!
US transfers 3 huge logistic bases from Qatar to Jordan in gesture to appease Iran!
One of the three huge logistics bases which the US military recently dismantled in Qatar and relocated to Jordan was the largest in the world. In the last few days, the US has shut down Sayliyah Main Army Camp an ammunition supply point.
Their 27 warehouses storing tanks, armored personnel carriers and other equipment were stored in this forward staging post in Qatar for US supplies across the Middle East and as a reserve stock in case hostilities erupted with Iran.
Supplies from the three bases, as well as a support mission based there, are now part of the US Central Command Area Support Group-Jordan.
American sources say that this massive relocation is aimed at reducing friction with Iran and clearing the path to revived nuclear negotiations.
6. The U.S. is unilaterally withdrawing from the Middle East including Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and by doing so is signaling weakness toward both American and Israeli enemies!
America has stood tall in these last days, since the birth of Israel in 1948, as the major deterrent for attempts to annihilate Israel. With the Americans out of the way, invading forces have a clear path to Israel.
In the eyes of Islamists, the Taliban’s seizure of Afghanistan mirrors the collapse of the world’s leading superpower to the forces of the Koran’s “true believers”—the jihadis. In this way, the pullout has emboldened extremists across Asia, the Middle East and beyond.
It’s hard to imagine anything more potent for fulfilling Satan’s plans to resurrect the Ottoman Caliphate than the surrender and disappearance of America from the Middle East!
7. As if on cue… From Turkey to Pakistan, the Mideast Beast is rising before our eyes!
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
The hour is late! God’s judgment has come upon America and the regime running our country is trying to intentionally destroy America.
We need to be before the Lord.
Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds.
While the left demands the unvaccinated be placed in economic ghettos, they are allowing COVID infected illegal immigrants to cross the border spreading deadly COVID germs in dozens of towns and cities across America. This is America in 2021.
‘No Vax, No Service’
On CNN yesterday, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo looked into the camera and said that unvaccinated people have no right to remain unvaccinated, and that if they refuse to submit to them they need to be shut out of society.
That means no restaurants, no access to the grocery store for food for their family, no access to anything. 17 months into the bazaar overreach of our government and things are only heating up.
The end-time insanity is not limited to the false news purveyors at CNN, it is coming from every quarter of this administration, with the rhetoric growing more intense by the day.
Establishments that have required vaccines often face pushback, from crowds of protesters and from those opposed to such restrictions.
A case in point: Argosy, an Atlanta gastropub, has seen strongly negative reaction on social media to its “No Vax, No Service” policy, including a Twitter TWTR, 2.77% post from Georgia U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican.
“This is called segregation,” Greene wrote. “Will you be testing everyone at the door for the flu, strep throat, stomach bugs, colds, meningitis, aids, venereal diseases, Hep A, Hep C, staff infections, athletes foot, pink eye, croup, bronchitis, ringworm, scabies, or any other contagions?”
Restaurants now telling unvaccinated customers, ‘No vax, no service’ as delta variant spreads
FROM MARKET WATCH: As COVID-19 cases surge throughout the U.S., a growing number of dining and drinking establishments are turning unvaccinated customers away, saying their businesses can’t risk possibly exposing patrons and staff to the virus.
BUT THESE “NO VAX, NO SERVICE” DECISIONS HAVE SPARKED CONTROVERSY, WITH ANTI-VACCINATION GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS SAYING THEY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS. SOME STATES, SUCH AS FLORIDA AND TEXAS, HAVE ALSO ENACTED LAWS THAT ESSENTIALLY PREVENT PRIVATE BUSINESSES FROM IMPOSING THESE BANS ON THE UNVACCINATED.
The idea of forced vaccination is gaining momentum and despite the extremely high COVID survival rate of 99.5%, everyone may soon have to make up their mind regarding the vaccination.
This is not something to take lightly but should be saturated in prayer for you and your family.
The best chapter in the New Testament concerning matters of personal conscience is Romans 14 where the Apostle Paul counsels all believers to,
“let everyone be fully persuaded in his own mind.”
What should Christians do about President Biden?
I hear that question often, though perhaps in a less respectful form. It’s more like, “What about Biden?” or “Did you hear what Biden has done lately?”
Most of my friends are Christians like me who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020. In conversations about politics I sometimes try to reframe, or perhaps enlarge the frame, of such conversations to include God’s plans for the church and the world and Christian responsibility within those plans.
What is that responsibility? What should Christians do about Biden? The biblical answer is that they should pray for him. The Bible commands all kinds of prayers for all kinds of rulers, good and bad.
Therefore, first of all I urge you that requests, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people – for kings and all who are in authority – so we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all Godliness and respectfulness.
I Timothy 2:1-2
Living a peaceful and Godly life is a blessing from God. This blessing is most obtained within a peaceful political and civil context in which religious liberty thrives. Disorder leads to violence and oppression of all types, including religious persecution.
If all the Trump supporting, evangelical Christians collectively stop praying for President Biden we are shooting ourselves in the foot by further withdrawing God’s favor from our nation and the church.
The Apostle Paul says we should pray for our leaders, “so WE may live a peaceful and quiet life.” We should pray for President Biden, Vice President Harris and the Administration in order to ask the Lord to keep us safe and free and so that the government would make wise decisions that will benefit our families and church. And thankfully, in 2021, we can still pray for the Lord to keep us free and allow the preaching of the Gospel in our country until Jesus returns.
God is able to sovereignly engineer rulers and circumstances to fulfill His will, “For dominion belongs to the Lord and He rules over the nations” (Ps. 22:28).
Regardless of political party, the leaders of our nation should be prayed for that they might lead with a spirit of humility, respect for one another, a spirit of understanding and a determination to cooperate for America’s common good.
Removing prayer for the current administration is a mistake that could bring further erosion and hardship on your family and the church at large.
Remember the unpleasant circumstances Paul was living under when he taught this. The Apostle wrote this to Timothy while sitting in prison, about to be martyred, under one of the most ungodly Roman governments in history. Nero was causing havoc persecuting the church and burning Christians for the fun of it. He was a cruel and vicious blasphemer but Paul says pray for our leaders!
You may not like the policies and ungodly standards of a particular party in power but God says we should pray for our leaders so we may live in peace. I want to live in peace don’t you? Of course. So we can’t afford to stop praying for our leaders.
That is why our political and civil leaders should be, if not at the top of our prayer lists, at least on our prayer lists.
Biden Announces Door-to-Door Outreach to Boost Vaccinations!
Our government is planning to send officials out to knock on people’s doors across America to pressure them to take the coronavirus vaccine.
If they show up, be sure to share the Good News with them that Jesus saves sinners!
President Joe Biden said last week:
“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and often times door by door – literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people,” Biden said during his speech about coronavirus.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki used a similar phrase in which she said coronavirus preventative measures will entail “targeted community by community, door to door outreach to get the remaining Americans vaccinated.”
Ronald Reagan nailed it when he aptly said that the most terrifying words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Here in 2021, the announcement by Joe Biden brings that statement to chilling new heights.
Starting soon, the Biden administration will be sending out ‘government officials’ to the homes of unvaccinated Americans to pressure them into receiving the COVID-19 vaccine jab.
Now I thought America didn’t have a National Vaccine Database for COVID, or do they? They must because how else would they know who hasn’t had it yet? Don’t say we didn’t warn you when there comes a knock at your door. They’ll be from the government, and they’re here to help.
Breitbart News reported the spread of the highly transmissible Delta variant of the Chinese coronavirus is reportedly “forcing” the Biden administration to “rethink Covid-19 measures,” which could include re-instituting mask mandates — even among vaccinated people.
Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has dubbed the Delta variant of “concern.” The variant totals roughly 20 percent of infections in the United States and has prompted the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) to urge fully vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings.
Dr. Anthony Fauci on July 4 cautioned that individuals will begin to see “almost two types of America” between the vaccinated and unvaccinated as the Delta variant spreads across the nation. As the Biden administration is “rethinking” the coronavirus from China, a July poll indicates 57 percent of Americans believe they have less personal freedom today than before the coronavirus pandemic.
This is where we are today, just as we told you from the beginning. Satan will continue to use his successful fear campaign to thwart the plans of God and continue his last-days onslaught against God’s people and to do what he can to silence the church.
