“Now will I sing to My well-beloved a song of My beloved touching His vineyard. My well-beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: and He fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and He looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem
, and men of Judah
, judge, I pray you, betwixt Me and My vineyard. What could have been done more to My vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: and I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel
, and the men of Judah
His pleasant plant: and He looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.” (Isa. 5:1-7).
. February 21 the Vatican
made a major appeal to Protestant America. Pope Francis, Kenneth Copeland, Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer, and what appeared to be a couple hundred Pentecostal leaders convened to communicate the desire and reasons to reunite Protestantism with Catholicism. “Find a bridge builder and support him” was the bishop’s final appeal.
The argument was very narrow, but to many Protestants who forsook the truths of the Bible, if not the Bible completely, the abridged version of the gospel by the Anglican mediator should easily convince millions of Protestants to return to Rome
. Even if only hundreds of thousands run to the Vatican
’s arms initially during these times of peace, later when real economic distress comes, hundreds of millions in America
will bow before the pope and all of his loyalists, and so will billions around the world.
The first message came through the Anglican bishop’s example of Elijah, who God would send before Christ’s return. This Elijah, the Anglican quoted, “shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Mal. 4:6). What is the underlying message from this legate? That the Protestant children need to turn their hearts back to the Vatican
fathers. Next, Pope Francis addressed Protestant America via video. The pope was videoed from a pleasant, sunlit room, apparently inside the Vatican
, and seemingly alone. He was not speaking ex-cathedra to multitudes in the piazza, which could have communicated the threat of power. It was a very homey, congenial setting.
He spoke alone, frankly appealing like a father to his wayward children. He became cogent and theological. He drew from the story of Joseph in Egypt
. He said that Joseph’s brothers had lots of money, but no food. And, the pope reminded Protestant Americans, “You have a lot of money, but you can’t eat your money.” It sounded like a gospel message; but, I believe it was a real threat. Pope Francis continued telling that the hungry brothers eventually were reconciled to Joseph, and even bowed down to him. Was he serious about the Joseph allusion to Protestant Americans bowing before Lord God the Pope? If German emperor, Henry IV was made to bow before Pope Gregory in confession after 3 days and nights in the winter, then Pope Francis is serious about Protestant Americans bowing before him. And, eating our money was no threat, it was a promise. Remember how the Germans burned their marks in order to get some heat during their winter.
And remember the verses, “All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water. They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads. They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.” (Eze. 7:17-19). “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats.” (Isa. 2:19,20).
It was very much a father to children heart-to-heart. It was a call to surrender that, left unheeded, would have dire ramifications. Largely still free and rebellious toward this rising global power, Americans have technology, liberty, and financial freedom, although that is shrinking. But whether or not their money is worthless, they still can’t eat it. America
might seem strong and invincible, but our muscles are fake, and our infrastructure is wasted with intentional mismanagement to purposely dry up every pot of money in the United States
Bishop Tony said it correctly: The protest is over; and, therefore there are no more Protestants. I agree that Protestant America is done and over. Civil republican democracy, led out in the world by America
, is finished. Constitutional freedoms are a thing of the past, even if the new American regime has not yet asserted its newly usurped power and rights. The strong American middle class is steeped in debt and very dependent on a bankrupt government. We are a shell of the American experiment, and about to be demolitioned. The Patriot Act is anything but patriotic to America
, and has gutted our Bill of Rights. We can no longer peaceably assemble, speak or dissent freely, print truth against propagandist material; neither have we any longer the old, just Habeas Corpus justice system.
The only freedom left is religious freedom, and that has been eroded away over the past 150 years by Jesuits pushing the unreasonable theory of evolution into our educational system. They have insidiously attacked the Bible under the masks of diplomaed scientists and philosophers. And now they have skillfully created a pornographically driven homosexual movement against Protestant Americans to further undercut the good effects of the Holy Writ.
And why would Jesuits bring allegations against the Bible and work so hard to dumb down the remaining churched Protestants with regard to the Bible? Because the Bible points the finger of doom at the paganism that makes Catholicism what it is, even if it is clothed with emblems and actions that look Christian. Regardless of their look, those objects, the mass, and those charismatic worship practices are artifacts that trace back to the most ancient spiritualism.
The Bible and the Bible alone, (another Reformation issue, but conspicuously unmentioned by the Anglican arbitrator), gives the world the wherewithal to free the encroachments by Rome
upon the conscience. The conscience, the individual mind, is the last of final frontiers to be conquered by Satan. This spiritual wickedness is making rapid progress with his favored earthly agency to bring this world to perdition—spiritual totalitarian control. That means a human race possessed by the god of this world.
The Bible also sheds light on sin and self-pleasing, and reveals God’s anger against sin, for the misery and torture it has caused this world’s populations. But, sin, as a doctrine, is no longer tolerable within the churched and secular Protestants, alike. The Law of God has been castigated and set aside by Protestantism, the churched as well as the unchurched Protestants. And the Bible’s message to us is, “For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot. Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto Me?” (Jer. 2:20, 21).
Our God isn’t saying, “Obey Me or I will destroy you!” But, He is saying, “Obey Me, for in the day you don’t, your own sin will destroy you. And Satan with his hosts would lead out in your destruction.” “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door.” (Gen. 4:7). The Destroyer (Rev. 9:11) has been let loose from his divinely imposed restraints. He is loosed, and his favored earthly agency and its millions of human footmen have eaten up Protestantism, the holy religion of the Bible.
Yes, the Bible gave our Protestant American fathers the strong conscience, courage, and work ethic, which made it indomitable and led to its success in the world. And today we have grown so healthfully that the world is our empire. But, 170 years ago we turned away from the will of God by abrogating His holy Law. So He has turned away from us. “For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before Me, saith the Lord GOD. How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways.” (Jer. 2:22, 23).
Baalim is back and flourishing in Protestantism. Protestants have “married the daughter of a strange god” (Mal. 2:11)—Charismatic, glossolalia, celebration, Jesuit Spiritual Formation—in whole, Catholicism, the most modern version of Baal and Ashtoreth. Modern Baalim has the same two gods in the new-modeled, unbiblical Jesus and Mary. Nothing is new under the sun.
Research the word Vatican
in many Latin - English / English - Latin dictionaries, or encyclopedias, and you will likely find that Vatican City
and St. Peter's Basilica of the Roman Catholic Church were built upon what was called in Latin vaticanus mons
or vaticanus collis
. The words mons
mean hill or mountain. You will also find in the dictionaries that the words vatic / vates / vatis all relate to prophecy as shown here:
vāt·ēs or vat·is -is m seer, prophet; bard, poet ║f prophetess; poetess
Vāticān·us -a -um adj Vatican

Especially does the word vaticinor
relate to the speaking in tongues we saw practiced at this recent February 21 meeting with Pentecostal leaders. Based on the above definitions, is there any question of the origin of the Charismatic movement? Ancient demonic possession and wild raving under nationalized religion. “Thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust
” (Is. 29:4). The Mother of harlots and abominations in the earth. Not a sister denomination among Christianity; but, the self-acclaimed mother of them.
So, God has rejected Protestant America. It can be Christian America now, if it wants to be. “And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.” (Lk. 16:9).
In 3 years will be a grand celebration of the conquest of the 1517 Protestant Reformation; and, soon afterward, a major economic failure. Then, like President Bush’s 9/11 at the start of his administration, when Mrs. Clinton begins her administration, the first emergency as president of an old and crumbling republic of civil America will be 1000 times scarier than 9/11. The looming collapse will come. “I will tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: and I will lay it waste.”
The pope’s warning will prove true, “You can’t eat your money.” And we won’t be able to say he didn’t warn us. The economic collapse will force Protestant America to pray to the pope for his blessing on it. The unanimous sentiment will be, “Surely, if God hears anyone, He will hear him.” The new president will take up the power of decree already signed into law, and we will never again see a free world.
Foreign armies will be marauding the land here and round the world, along with a pandemic poverty, corruption in all levels of government, Herman Goering style butchery, vigilante crime and gang activity everywhere. Protestantism’s old enemy is back and intends to reclaim its dominance with a vengeance. They have been humiliated by Protestantism long enough. We will learn what happens to everyone who has tried to humble the devil, but wouldn’t go all the way with consecrating the heart to God and His Law.
“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: and the LORD shall utter His voice before His army: for His camp is very great: for He is strong that executeth His word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?” (Joel 2:1-11).
Get ready for that “northern army” of Babylon (Joel 2:20). Count the cost. Go to the cross, and beg the Lord to make it clearer to you and to let the cross give you victory over the world as it did for the apostolic church. “Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: and rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil. Who knoweth if He will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind Him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? Blow the trumpet in Zion
, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?” (Joel 2:12-17). Go to Gethsemane
and plead for the strength and spirituality and obedience that have been so much lacking. Take time to be holy each morning.
During the little time that is left, get out of debt as much as possible and don’t assume new debt. Pare back your wants; live cheaply and within your means; be frugal. Pay down your loans; pay off your credit cards. “Afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you.” (Lev. 16:29). That work, during this long investigative judgment does not mean regular employment, but working to cause your own salvation. It speaks to learning to trust in Jesus and His words that He spoke in the Bible.
“There shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.” (Lev. 23:27-31).
Learn what “His rest” (Heb. 4:1) means for you. Learn what it means to rest in Jesus to give you strength to overcome sin—the true meaning of Sabbath keeping—and the sealing. Search your souls by reading the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy. Let their light shine onto your sin-stained life. “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” (Rom. 8:13, 14).
Time is limited; there is delay no longer. Therefore, heed the health message and the 8 laws of health. Get out your walking shoes; or better yet, your hiking boots, if you own a pair. Put away your procrastination and start walking 2-3 miles every day; then, when it’s time to flee you will have a body that can do so.
Start your day with a 32 oz. cup of steaming water or herbal tea. Meanwhile, take time to read your devotions and let the hot water clean the gut. It’s amazing the energy a clean gut creates, as the toxins no longer burden the body. Then, get out into the clear morning air, do your brisk walk, and shed those extra “blessings.” I’ve found 5 a.m. to be perfect for aerobic exercise, after the night life has gone to bed and the day life hasn’t yet come out to congest the roads and pollute the air with carbon monoxide and noise. It’s perfect for meditating on your devotions, as your undistracted mind gets oxygenated and the circulation flows.
Learn what it means to be hungry by eating 2 meals a day with nothing in between meals except for water and the day’s activities. Prepare and eat you foods simply, as close to the condition as the Lord created them. Fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables constitute the diet God gave Adam in the garden. It is perfect for the very last generation that is preparing for the time of trouble and Jesus’ return. Remember: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.” (1Jn. 3:2,3).
is here. And soon, after the Lord “shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” (Dan. 12:7). Then, the Latter Rain will come. “And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.” (Rev. 11:12). Like the apostolic church, we will be “raised…up together, and made…[to] sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
” (Eph. 2:6). “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.” (Rev. 11:13).
Then, the final throes of Satan’s rein in the earth―the long-time, falsely advertized secret rapture and millennium of peace deception. “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (2Thess. 2:9-11).
After that, the true Lord of heaven and earth, the “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” (Rev. 19:16) will be seen as a small black cloud that will grow increasingly brighter as He slows to sub-light speed to deliver His people who have trusted in Him and faithfully kept all of His commandments.
