What we see Coming for the New Year
Many Charismatic/Prophetic ministries are prophetically declaring a true move of God to sweep America. They see the terrible division, strife, and wickedness overtaking America, and want to save the country by praying into reality a true move of God (like the Jesus movement in the 70s). Most want to be involved in a move of God that will bring millions of lost souls into the fold of God. Unfortunately, a desire to restore America will hamper their involvement in the coming final true move of God. Their own carnal self-efforts and misunderstanding of Scripture interferes with God’s work in preparing the body of Christ for the coming final true move of God.
Many of these so-called prophetic ministries have for years embraced an amillennialist view of Christ’s coming. (Meaning few believe that the Great Tribulation will usher in Christ’s appearance, followed by the rapture, and then what follows is the wrath of God poured out upon the Earth, then Christ’s return for the millennial reign on Earth for 1,000 years.)
Indeed, “God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9) For Jesus declared:
“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven” (Mark 13:24-27).
These deceived prophetic ministries see all the terrible things that are now upon America and the world. The ever-increasing persecution, corruption, and wicked perversion has become America’s cultural norm. Their desire to see America spared judgment has clouded their understanding of how the end of this age will unfold according to Scripture.
These so-called prophetic leaders operate like prophetic cheerleaders in a valiant attempt to stir God’s people awake, but to no avail. Many of these prophetic leaders and those who follow them are experiencing burn-out. Much like the false prophets of Baal when they took on Elijah’s challenge. All their efforts, prophesies, and declaration has fallen to the ground because they have not heard from the Lord concerning America’s role in the last days. In gross denial, they refuse to see that the troubling signs of the end are getting much worse, despite all the years they have called God’s people to pray, repent, and fund their revival efforts.
What we see coming in 2020 is more increased lawlessness, earthquakes, and more severe distress and calamities. The persecution madness that has started will become extremely worse and carried out by the far-left populace through their politics, primarily driven by the LGBTQ hate filled agenda towards Christians. This is God allowing Satan to rule for a season which will finally wake up God’s people to the truth about the end-of-this-age. We first warned about America going beyond the point-of-no-return in 2004, in our first book. We warned then how America would succumb to a socialistic and LGBTQ hate-filled political takeover. Just as Jesus warned that the world (and America) would become like it was in the days of Lot. Review our first book The Horsemen Cometh 3rd Edition, Racing Towards the Midnight Cry)
There will a move of God, but it will not restore America, but rather facilitate the final harvest leading into and through to the end of the Great Tribulation period, until a purified and unified body of Christ is rapture ready.
Jesus prophesied of this preparation time that is now upon us in Matthew 24:9-14, where lawlessness and hatred towards Christians and righteousness will drive a persecution madness that will sweep throughout the whole world, including America. This hatred towards the conservative (true) Christian will be used by God to clean house, causing the false and lukewarm Christian to fall away. When the smoke clears, only the true saint will stand before Christ when He appears!
A prophetic movement is about to come which Jesus called a cry at midnight and will carry the message of: “Behold the bridegroom, come out to meet him.” This wake-up-now prophetic word is about to be declared by Christ’s true prophets and bondservants. (See Matthew 25:1-13.) Study Matthew chapters 24 and 25 and you will see that the world and America is moving from what Jesus referred to as the birth pangs of the coming kingdom towards the great and final awakening during the Great Tribulation and Christ’s appearance in the clouds, and the angels facilitating the rescue of the rapture-ready saint.
As for the saint who wakes up in time and allows God to show them their issues of heart, hidden defilements, and self-reliance, and if they repent of their love for this age, Christ will transform and save them. They will become rapture ready. (Many today only learn to mimic Christ by following their favorite leader or author—few learn to embrace the transforming discipline of the Lord.) The coming persecution will remedy this shallow Christian walk within many believers.
Our end of the year message is a warning to the sincere believer to wake up and stop trying to make America great again. Now is the time to brace and prepare for more lawlessness, vileness and perversion. Stop listening to half-baked prophets and wayward evangelist who want to enlist God’s people into praying for a move of God to restore America and contend against the wickedness that is now sweeping the land. (These leaders don’t recognize God’s plan in purifying the bride of Christ through persecution, nor are they teaching sound doctrine on how to work with God to grow up into Christ and become ready.)
Leaders who point their finger at the wicked are failing their call. The Apostle Paul was clear on judging outsiders: “For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. ‘Purge the evil person from among you’” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13).
The prophetic word we have for the beginning of 2020 is this: Leave the wicked alone. It is time to embrace the fiery discipline of the Lord, die to our old carnal self-life, that we may be raised into the fulness of life in Christ. Most Christians have been serving Christ in their own strength, only to serve leadership’s agenda. Be prepared for God to allow troubles and challenges in the coming year to lead His people away from self-reliance, to where they either rely on God or fall away. It is time to give up the idolatrous love of America, come out of a last days Babylonian culture that has overtaken America.
