Shadow Government, Civil War, and Blood for Blood

In the post Civil War Foreboding, I wrote about how the Lord showed me that He will allow a spirit of conflict to arise in America that will provoke a form of civil war. This will be a judgment on our nation. Donald Trump's role is to stir up half the country against the other half, led by Obama and other globalist forces from behind the scenes. This won't be a classic civil war with "union forces" opposing "confederates" on the battlefield. In my opinion, it will probably consist of numerous chaotic civil uprisings, insurgencies and disasters that are quelled by martial law. The divisions will occur along a variety of lines: Left vs Right, Globalist vs Nationalist, Black vs White, Citizens vs Immigrants, Jihadis vs Non-Muslims, State Governments vs Federal, etc.


I also shared why I believe the Lord showed me Obama still holds reins of power by controlling a shadow government. Since that post was published in January, the news has been inundated with stories about Obama's "shadow government" and the "deep state" opposing Trump's agenda:

How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump's presidency (NY Post)
Obama has an army of 30,000 agitators organized through a network of leftist nonprofits who will fight Trump's agenda. Obama did not leave Washington DC, but still lives in a mansion less than two miles from the White House. 

Insiders: Obama Holdover 'Shadow Government' Plotting to Undermine Trump (Breitbart)
Several intelligence insiders say a shadow government of Obama holdovers are leaking information to derail Trump's presidency, with National Security Advisor Mike Flynn as their first great success.

Spies Keep Intelligence from Donald Trump on Leak Concerns (Wall Street Journal)
Current and former officials say US intelligence officers are withholding information from President Trump.

Glenn Greenwald: What The 'Deep State' Is Doing To Trump Is A Prescription For Destroying Democracy' (Townhall) 

While these articles just skim the surface of what is really happening, isn't it amazing that suddenly the "conspiratorial" idea of a shadow government is all over the mainstream media? Praise God, He revealed it.

Blood for Blood

And He recently revealed more. On Sunday my wife and I were having a quiet time and the Lord let us to Numbers 35, which is about manslaughter, blood avengers and cities of refuge. In particular this verse was highlighted:

Do not defile the land where you are, for bloodshed defiles the land, and there can be no atonement for the land because of the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of the person who shed it.” – Numbers 35:33, Holman Bible

The heavy and sobering message we received is that God is going to atone for the blood shed by Americans by shedding their own blood. In this way He will cleanse the land.

Think of the 60 million babies killed by abortion, the untold millions killed and harmed by US foreign wars and interventions, the casualties of the CIA-run drug trade, the human trafficking and child sexual abuse and ritual sacrifice especially among the elites in our society. The blood of the innocent has not simply washed away. It cries out from the ground, just like Abel's blood after Cain slew him. Unless we individually have repented and are covered by the blood of Jesus, it will be blood for blood. God will re-balance the skewed scales of justice in America. 

"For He will avenge the blood of His servants. He will take vengeance on His adversaries; He will purify His land and His people." - Deuteronomy 32:43, Holman Bible 

This judgment will fall on all levels of society. Even the elites who think they are above accountability for the crimes they perpetuate in the world will receive their due. Think of the politicians and government leaders, corrupt corporate and banking chiefs, secret society power brokers. No one is above God's reach.

One hundred and fifty years ago America had a president who understood and acknowledged the scales of God's justice, even this aspect of blood for blood. Abraham Lincoln, at his second inaugural address in the midst of the Civil War, spoke these words to the nation: 

"Fondly do we hope -- fervently do we pray -- that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue, until all the wealth piled by the bond-man's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether." - Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address, 1865 

Lincoln understood that the bloodshed of the Civil War was in part a divine retribution for the bloodshed of slavery. And he spoke it to the nation!

Yet if I spoke the words in this article to most churches, what do you think would be the response? I can tell you because I have already tried. Last year I contacted about 35 churches in my area about judgment. I wanted to know if church leaders understood God's judgment of America had begun and what they were doing preparing their flocks for the coming storm. Most ignored me. A few responded to disagree. One associate pastor conceded that judgment of America is a possibility but didn't really want to talk about it. 

So there you have it: They don't want to hear it. Tickle their ears and massage their egos, but don't tell them about God's justice and judgment. I think most people in churches would reject this message, because in fact they already have. (There are a few exceptions among churches, but I don't know of any in my area.)

How far America has fallen! In 1865 we had a president who humbly and publicly acknowledged the justice and judgment of God on our nation - treasure for treasure and blood for blood - but today if you speak of it in church they will hate it. Instead many talk about how God is using Donald Trump to make America great again, which is DELUSION. Or they talk about how Trump is a tyrant that Hillary and Obama and the Democrats need to save us from, which is equally DELUSION. This is all a trap and setup for conflict.

There was more to the revelation the other night. The Lord then led us to Judges 20 and 21 as well as 2 Samuel 18, both of which are about CIVIL WARS. The first describes a war between 11 tribes of Israel and the tribe of Benjamin, in which there was much bloodshed. The other describes a war between David's son Absalom and the forces loyal to King David, in which there was much bloodshed.

I interpreted this to mean the bloodshed in America will come about through civil war and internal conflict. This is a message we have received before and it is definitely coming.

Finally, we were led to Jeremiah 31, which is joyful and points to our coming deliverance.

"Then the virgin will rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together, for I will turn their mourning into joy and will comfort them and give them joy for their sorrow. 'I will fill the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness,' declares the Lord." - Jeremiah 31:13-14, NASB

There is hope through and on the other side of this. None of what I said in this article negates the love and mercy of God. There is forgiveness for all who repent and believe in Jesus Christ. There is nothing to be afraid of, not even death.

But as a nation we have forgotten the justice and judgment of God. The Lord is about to remind us that He has not forgotten.

P.S. For a second witness to this message, see "The Land Must Be Cleansed" in Diana Pulliam's blog called The Mighty Hand of God.

Faith Not Fear

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid."
- John 14:27, NIV

Nothing is scary if we trust in the Lord and his promises.

Fear is natural emotion we all experience. We might feel it in response to the unknown, being out of control or potential loss or harm.

But fear is also an indicator of a lack of faith in God. The Bible tells us not to fear:

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
- Isaiah 41:10, NIV

When fears arise, we need to go to God and work them out. Ask him to help us understand the source and perceive what is true. There is always a lie or misbelief beneath a fear. Once we see the truth, we exercise the faith to trust the Lord and stand on the truth.

Fear in the Parable of the Talents

Fear is probably Satan's greatest tool for enslaving people and holding them back from truth and righteousness. 

In the parable of the talents in Matthew 25, read the conversation between the master and the slave who hid his talent instead of using it to earn a return:

"And the one also who had received the one talent came up and said, 'Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow and gathering where you scattered no seed. AND I WAS AFRAID, and went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.' But his master answered and said to him, 'You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow and gather where I scattered no seed. Then you ought to have put my money in the bank, and on my arrival I would have received my money back with interest. Therefore take away the talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents.' For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." - Matthew 25:24-28, NASB

The slave said he was AFRAID. Afraid of what? He thought the master was harsh and unfair, so he did nothing with his talent. As a result, it was taken from him and he was sent into the outer darkness.

Do you see the lie the slave believed? The master in this parable represents God. The slave did not believe God is good and generous. Therefore he did nothing with his talent. It was FEAR that motivated him instead of FAITH.

Except for a healthy fear of God, let us cast fear aside. As fears arise, we can take them to the Lord, work them out and get to a point of faith and truth. Then we will be unencumbered and free to earn a return for the Master, who is coming back quickly!
"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
 - Hebrews 11:6, NIV

Our Hope Is in the Age to Come

"Lift up your eyes to the sky,
Then look to the earth beneath;
For the sky will vanish like smoke,
And the earth will wear out like a garment
And its inhabitants will die in like manner;
But My salvation will be forever,

And My righteousness will not wane."
- Isaiah 51:6, NASB

Our hope is in the age to come.

We were born into this world and it is all we have known, so it is natural to think this is all there is. It is tempting to think that if we are going to have a good life and a future, we must build it here and now in this present reality. 

"For this world in its current form is passing away." - 1 Corinthians 7:31, Holman CSB

However, by faith in the word of God we lay hold of the truth: This world in its current form is passing away. This is not our home. This life is a testing ground where are our eternal destinies are decided. Did we repent of evil and believe in Jesus Christ to have eternal life with him? Or did we go along with the world and follow Satan into the lake of fire? Not only is our eternal position determined here, but our eternal rewards as well. God generously rewards faithful service. Jesus said to store up treasures in heaven where they endure forever, not on earth where everything will perish. That means He wants us to invest our talents and resources into doing good and advancing the Kingdom of Heaven, not building our own fiefdoms destined to perish quickly.

When I say quickly, I mean quickly! The Holy Spirit has revealed that we are approaching the end of this age. Judgments are coming on the world. The Four Horsemen of Revelation are riding. The battle of Gog and Magog and the destruction of Mystery Babylon is coming too, as well as the New World Order beast kingdom. This generation is going to see it all.

It is critical to build our faith in God and prepare to deal with suffering, persecution, calamity and loss. We must detach from this world in its present form and put our hope in the age to come. Jesus said in this world we will have tribulation. It's not going to be fun retirements with generous pensions and Caribbean cruises. The prosperity preachers' promise of "our best life now" is causing people to put their hope in this world and leading them astray - exactly what Satan wants. Shepherds need to tell their sheep the truth of what is coming from the pulpit, otherwise people may lose their faith in the fiery trials ahead.

So where is our hope? Our hope is in the age to come. Our hope is that Jesus is coming back to defeat Satan and his minions and bring peace and renewal to earth for a magnificent thousand-year reign. Beyond that even greater things are coming - a new heaven and a new earth! It's all good if we are in Christ.

"How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace
And brings good news of happiness,
Who announces salvation,
And says to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'
Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices,
They shout joyfully together;
For they will see with their own eyes
When the Lord restores Zion. 
Break forth, shout joyfully together,
You waste places of Jerusalem;
For the Lord has comforted His people,
He has redeemed Jerusalem.
The Lord has bared His holy arm
In the sight of all the nations,
That all the ends of the earth may see
The salvation of our God.
Depart, depart, go out from there,
Touch nothing unclean;
Go out of the midst of her, purify yourselves,
You who carry the vessels of the Lord.
But you will not go out in haste,
Nor will you go as fugitives;
For the Lord will go before you,
And the God of Israel will be your rear guard."
 - Isaiah 52:7-12

Money Ministers and For-Profit Prophets Leading the Sheep Astray

I'm just an obscure person with a blog that Google has shadowbanned for nearly two years, so few people find it through Internet search engines. They have to be referred directly. Yet the blog receives a regular stream of visitors, so I am thankful for that.

Still, I cannot compete with the celebrity Christian ministers and personalities who have big voices and numerous followers and fans. More and more, I hear these big names hail President Trump as some kind of King Cyrus who is anointed by God to restore America and make it great again. It makes me sad and sick because I see something very different. I see these Christian celebrities using their influence to lead people leading people into deception and judgment. All I can do is my small part to push back against it.

The Trump Deception

To anyone who will listen: Please don't fall for the Trump deception. This is a big one, a doozy. It's part of the end-times "powerful delusion" that God is sending to determine who will be judged: 

"... because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness." - 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, Berean Study Bible

Why? Because the promise of Trump, and what Trump embodies personally, is a lie from Satan himself: You can have blessing, prosperity and greatness - without repentance and without walking in God's righteous ways. Sadly, America as a nation and its lukewarm churches do not walk in God's ways.

As for Trump personally, he explicitly said he never asks God for forgiveness. This is a man who does things his way, the world's way:

Trump has always been a man of the elite and used to be a liberal Democrat, until he repositioned himself as a conservative nationalist to run for president as a Republican.

But it's actually much worse than that. Circumstantial evidence is overwhelming that Trump is a high-level freemason, which means he participates in Luciferian secret societies. Nathan Leal has done an excellent job exposing this - check out The Trump Chronicles - Part Five - Trump Tower & the Invocation. In other words, Trump invokes pagan occult rituals that originate from ancient Babylon and Egypt. This is the source of his worldly success. He is backed by the Luciferian brotherhood and by principalities of darkness in the heavenly realms.

This also means Trump is a member of the New World Order elite, the group of people Satan is using to establish his beast kingdom on earth, as depicted in the Book of Revelation. Jacob van Dyke presents evidence that the NWO elite have been planning a Trump presidency for a LONG TIME:

So Trump is playing his part in the take-down of America. As I explained in Civil War Foreboding and President Trump's Fascism Is Starting to Show, his role is to stir up a spirit of conflict in America that will divide the country and provoke a form of civil war/conflict. I believe Trump is publicly identifying with Christians and the right, so that when everything implodes on his watch, Christians will be blamed and the floodgates of persecution will be opened.

Diabolically brilliant, isn't it?

Shannon Johnson "Boldsojah4Christ" portrays it all very well in this truly inspired rap song:

America's Fat Shepherds

"Then the word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to those shepherds, "Thus says the Lord God, 'Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock? You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock.'"'" - Ezekiel 34:1-3

Why are so many of America's celebrity ministers and big-name Christian personalities leading people astray? First of all, be immediately suspicious of anything popular. The Scriptures say Satan is the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4) and the whole world lies in his power (1 John 5:19). So, it is a red flag whenever the world runs after something en masse like Trump. The way of righteousness is not popular. Jesus put it this way:

"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." - Matthew 7:13-14

Among the Christian ministers who are speaking against the Trump deception - Nathan Leal, Shannon Johnson, Jonathan Kleck, Mena Lee Grebin - I see a couple common characteristics. First, they are not popular. They are known but not popular and broadly praised like the big-name celebrities. Narrow is the way that leads to life.

Second, they do not sell their instruction in the word of God and prophecies for money In contrast, the celebrity ministers are always selling books, DVDs, conferences, etc. for MONEY MONEY MONEY. This is a sin so commonly practiced in the American church that few even consider it wrong. But the word of God says it is. It also carries specific consequences:

"Her leaders issue rulings for a bribe,
her priests teach for payment,
and her prophets practice divination for money.
Yet they lean on the Lord, saying, 

'Isn’t the Lord among us?
No disaster will overtake us.'

Therefore, because of you,
Zion will be plowed like a field,
Jerusalem will become ruins,
and the hill of the temple mount
will be a thicket."

- Micah 3:11-12, Holman Christian Standard Bible

Jesus Christ paid the price in full for our salvation. Salvation is a free gift. Therefore, it is an abomination to when ministers sell the message of salvation and instruction in the word of God for money, as if the ministry of the gospel is a corporate enterprise.

When ministers instruct for money and give prophecies for payment, as a consequence they will start to speak ear-tickling delusions in the name of the Lord. "Isn't the Lord among us? No disaster will overtake us." When in fact the opposite is true: God's judgment is upon the land and destruction is coming, in part BECAUSE OF the corruption of its ministers and how they are leading people astray. "Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become ruins."

This is definitely true in America. Celebrity ministers are telling people how Trump will make America great again, because they have been given over to delusion.

I am not saying it's wrong for ministers to accept donations or a church to hire a pastor and pay him a salary. But it is wrong to sell books and videos unless they are also made freely available online. It is wrong to charge at the door for conferences and speaking engagements. Again, donations are fine, but entrance fees are not.

So be careful who you listen to. Money ministers and for-profit prophets will lead you astray. Their judgment is coming:

"'Thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will demand My sheep from them and make them cease from feeding sheep. So the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore, but I will deliver My flock from their mouth, so that they will not be food for them."'" - Ezekiel 34:10
