The Cockroach

Monday, September 7, 2015, 6:43 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Blessed Are You.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Isaiah 14:28-32 (NASB).

In the year that King Ahaz died this oracle came:

“Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you,
Because the rod that struck you is broken;
For from the serpent’s root a viper will come out,
And its fruit will be a flying serpent.
“Those who are most helpless will eat,
And the needy will lie down in security;
I will destroy your root with famine,
And it will kill off your survivors.
“Wail, O gate; cry, O city;
Melt away, O Philistia, all of you;
For smoke comes from the north,
And there is no straggler in his ranks.
“How then will one answer the messengers of the nation?
That the Lord has founded Zion,
And the afflicted of His people will seek refuge in it.”

Rods That Strike

What rods are striking you right now? Many people and nations within the world right now they are being stricken by the rod of deceiving spirits, a false gospel, the US government and military, and the New World Order. In the book of Revelation we read about “mystery Babylon,” the harlot, who seduces the kings of the earth with the wine of her adulteries. She rides the beast. Mystery Babylon will fall at the hands of this beast, and then the beast will rule for a period of time in which the beast will make war against the saints and will conquer them (Rev. 14). Although in one aspect I believe Babylon represents the world’s system, including the worldly and adulterous church, I believe it is also a specific physical location on the earth. The US government and military (plus allies in the UN) fits the description of this Babylon. The US is the world’s super power right now, and it goes throughout the earth conquering and murdering and confiscating others’ property. The UN and the N.W.O. are byproducts of the US government, which was formed to produce this New Order of the Ages (Research the US Great Seal symbols: New World Order).

Although I don’t completely understand all of this, what I believe the Lord Jesus is showing me here is that there is a day coming when the USA government will be broken, and there may be people on the face of this earth who will think they will now have relief from its rod, but they are not to rejoice too prematurely, for from this root (US/Babylon) a viper (the Beast/New World Order) will come out. I also see Babylon as the adulterous church, which is under judgment now, but out of its ashes will rise the phoenix (new order), which is this one-world religion. I believe this beast has been rising for some time, and has already been involved in the murdering of innocents and of followers of Christ, and in the conquering and subjugation of nations, but I sensed it might not be fully formed just yet. If this beast is to rule the earth, which it will, it must break down all barriers to its kingdom rule, which includes borders between nations, indicating the breaking down of sovereign nations to bring them all under the rule of this beast. It must also break down barriers between various religions, in order to bring all religions under the rule (control) of this beast.

How Accomplished?

So, how is this presently being accomplished? One of the biggest ways this is taking place presently is via deception. For one, not one of us should trust what we read, hear or see in the media, because so much of it is now government (New World Order) controlled. So much of it is total fabrication or else it is a clever blend of truth and lies. Some of it is total drama (acted out; staged), while some is partially staged and partially real. Notice how often in these news stories they use the terms “staged” or “drama,” as if they are letting us know the truth. Yet, it is very difficult these days to know what is truth and what are lies or where the truth ends and the lies begin unless we have some insider knowledge of what is really going on, such as it is happening to us and to people we know, and we are eyewitnesses, and yet, even there, we can be deceived, for what might appear one way outwardly may be really something else. So, we just need to pray for spiritual discernment in these matters and trust the Lord to open our eyes to the truth and to expose the lies.

Regarding deception within the church, though, we have a standard we can go by against which we can measure these lies and deceptions, and we can know if what we are hearing, seeing and reading is true or not. We have the Word of God, and we have the Living Word within us in the person of the Holy Spirit to nudge our spirits when something isn’t right. We have to be students of the Word, and we have to be sensitive to the Spirit’s voice, listen to what God is saying to us, and follow his lead and do what he says if we are going to be discerning about what is false, though. And, when the Spirit nudges us, we need to take it to the Lord in prayer, seeking his face, pray for wisdom and discernment and do whatever homework is necessary to seek out the truth and to expose the lies. If we just accept whatever we hear coming from the mouths of preachers, just because it looks like it is biblical, because they throw in scriptures here and there to give their teaching support, then we will never be able to discern truth from lies. We have to test whatever we hear.

Actually, we do have somewhat of a measurement, too, with regard to these news stories, and that is if they follow a particular modus operandi of the US government, their political allies and this New World Order. If we have followed world news for some time now with any amount of prayer and spiritual discernment, we should be able to pick up on the M.O. of these US/N.W.O.’s activities in the world at large. We should recognize the language in these news stories, too, and it should lead us to investigate in prayer what is being propagated to see if it has any element of truth, and how much, and in what respect.

The US government, in concert with the New World Order has been going throughout the world faking uprisings, creating chaos, and then coming in as “savior” to help these countries resolve their issues which they seem to not be able to handle themselves. The US/N.W.O. are the terrorists of the world, as they are the ones who recruit, train and finance these terrorist organizations. They kill at will, take control of other lands not theirs, confiscate the natural resources of these nations, supplant their sovereign governments, and form “transitional” (New World Order) governments under the control of this beast, which may or may not yet be fully formed. Yet, at some point, this beast is going to also conquer the US, and is doing so presently, I believe, from within, and then the USA will also be fully under the domination of this New World Order beast.

The Religious Aspect

The Pope and Obama have both been strong voices for this N.W.O. beast and its one-world religion, of late. The Lord Jesus was giving me an image this morning of a cockroach in relation to this New World Order beast and its one-world religion. I read where a cockroach can exhibit emergent behavior. Emergent evidently has to do with co-operation between or among people or groups of people (such as nations or religious organizations) who are not like-minded, i.e. who are independent in government, thought and belief (faith). Emergent also has to do with conformity to others’ way of thinking, and a gathering together of thoughts, which includes tolerance of those who do not act and think (or believe) like we do. This also has an element of self-gratification and of saving your own skin, perhaps, and desiring to ensure your own comfort by co-operating, conforming and not making waves. Emergent is also something newly created, is growing in strength and/or popularity, and arises unexpectedly, like the rising of the phoenix (New World Order) out of the ashes of the old order, which is being put to death.

Two things are emerging here, which are two distinct aspects of this beast. One is this one-world dictatorial government which is presently conquering nations and peoples, and which will one day fully rule all people of the earth, and the other is this one-world religion which Pope Francis and Obama are presently pushing hard on the people and governments and church in this world of ours. I don’t know if these news stories’ reporting of vast amounts of refugees flowing into Europe has any element of truth to it or not, but what the Lord was showing me this morning is that this is really about the influx of this New World Order “Cockroach” which is forcing the governments and people of this world to conform and to cooperate in unity with its purposes and goals, which is the rule of this beast and one-world religion. Obama and the Pope are giving strong messages of unity of all religions, including the non-religious, of tolerance of all people, of the breaking down of whatever divides us as a people, and of the need to do away with our differences, i.e. to destroy the gospel and its messengers. In other words, this is being forced upon us.

The Lord also gave me a picture, though, of leaders within independent nations and of Christians who hold fast to the foundations of the faith as resisting and shaking off this cockroach which has suddenly appeared on the scene and has taken the world by surprise, but which has been working its way subtly and gradually via deception and devious means to elicit the people’s confidence and trust. We who shake off this cockroach, and who refuse to conform and to cooperate with this emergent movement within the church and within the world via this New World Order “Cockroach,” i.e. beast, though, will be and are being targeted for much persecution, rejection, mistreatment and even death for our testimonies for Jesus Christ and for his gospel. This emergent movement being promoted by Obama and the Pope and other religious and governmental leaders sounds good, and makes people feel good, and they think this is going to bring about world peace, but this viper will turn around and bite us. It will kill the old order of things in order to bring about this new order, which some people will see as an improvement, but it is not to be trusted, for this viper is not here to bring us peace, but is here to destroy.

Blessed Are You / An Original Work / August 29, 2012

Based off Luke 6:20-49 NIV 1984

“Blessed are you;
Blessed are you who are poor
For God’s kingdom is yours.
Blessed are you;
Blessed are you who are hungry,
You’ll be satisfied.
Blessed are you;
Blessed are you who weep now,
For you will laugh with joy.
Blessed are you;
Blessed are you when men hate
And reject you because of Christ.”

“Rejoice in that;
Rejoice in that day and
Leap for joy; great your reward.
But I tell you;
But I tell you to love those
Who hate you; do them good.
Pray for those who;
Pray for those who treat you wrong
And say kind things of them.
Do to others;
Do to others as you would have
Them do; have them do to you.”

“If you love those;
If you love those who love you,
What praise is there for you?
Because Christ is;
Because Christ is kind,
Be merciful, just like He is.
Forgive others;
Forgive others their offense
Against you; be ye kind.
Hear My words and;
Hear My words and put them
Into practice, then you’ll be fulfilled.”
