A Word for the Remnant
A Word for the Remnant
This is the first post since the High Holy Days, and I pray your time of celebration with family and friends was incredibly blessed!
Before I go any further, please know that if you consider yourself a Christian, and you are an American citizen — this post is for you.
After much prayer and consideration for the opening topic of this year 5777 (which we just celebrated on Rosh Hashanah October 2-3, 2016), I have concluded to present this word God gave me during the Feast of Sukkot. I sense it is urgent for the Body of Christ, and I believe it’s something every believer needs to hear. It includes ten points, which I will carefully outline. Again, the target audience is for all believers in America who follow Jesus Christ.
Please understand how seriously I take sharing words from the LORD, such as this one you’re about to read. This is fearsome and serious business, and it comes to you after much prayer and deliberation. We are clearly exhorted to biblically test and prove all things, and I encourage you to take this back to your prayer closet and scripture, and allow the LORD to speak to you. First, I believe it’s necessary to preface this by saying God has been speaking on these points to me for several years. However, it’s only recently that He has brought further clarity. I am not speaking in first person as “Thus saith the LORD.” I would not dare, and I know better. Rather, I’m speaking as one who has listened over many years to what He has shown, spoken, and confirmed in an attempt to compile and deliver necessary information to His Body. I endeavor to do my best in elaborating on each point, making them as clear as possible, even for those who may not be well-versed in some of the subject matter addressed. With that said, if you read this and have questions, I kindly invite you to ask.
There are a total of ten points. This is a long post, so please allow yourself the necessary time to read and digest the material.
God’s Eternal Timeline
As we move forward in the Hebrew year 5777, it’s very necessary to understand the timeline of God’s eternal calendar. The year 5777 starts a new “era” or “generation” within God’s kingdom with respect to our allotted time here on earth. His timeline began with the creation account. If the Hebrew calendar is accurate, we are merely 223 years away from entering into the seventh millennium, which marks the millennial reign of Christ (see Revelation 20), otherwise known as the “millennial rest”. God brings rest in sevens, by which He measures the fulfillment of time. According to God, rest can only occur once a particular work is “finished”. He measures each week in seven days, which ends with a Sabbath. He measures years in sevens, which ends with a Shemitah. After the completion of seven Shemitahs (49 years), we have the Jubilee (50th year). In the same way, the thousand-year reign of Christ in Revelation 20 is “the millennial rest” wherein Satan is bound for a season, and after which a new heaven and new earth are made. Hence, His work is completed.
For those of you who may not know or understand this timeline, the Hebrew calendar was meticulously formulated according to the ancient Jewish texts — both canonical and historical. Most orthodox Jews hold the calendar to be correct. However, with careful consideration for human error, there are those of the opinion that it could be off target, give or take approximately 200 years.
What does that mean for us today? How does that compute? Although we cannot know the day or hour, we can certainly know the season of our LORD’s return. There is no question, therefore, that our redemption draws nigh.
With that said, 5776 ended the Jubilee year, which was a significant one with respect to Israel’s statehood, which came about in 1948 just after the Holocaust. This year, 5777, marks their 70th year. That is significant according to the biblical calendar. The six-day war of 1967 took place fifty years ago. That is also a significant number with respect to Israel’s statehood.
#1. Such times and seasons are not coincidence.
God’s timeline is always accurate, even if ours is not.
The Last Jubilee
We have just experienced what may be our last Jubilee. The Jubilee is celebrated every fifty years, and it marks a time when all debts are cleared, slaves are freed, and people return to their homes and families. It’s a divine year of rest wherein Israel experiences the miraculous provision of God, who alone sustains them. The land rests, and the people rest. It is a year of refreshing, joy, and great celebration.
How could this be the last Jubilee? There are several reasons. First, we must consider the signs in the heavens as well as the earth. I’m sure most of you have heard of the blood moon tetrad that just transpired in the year 2014-2015, both of which were years of rest (the Shemitah and Jubilee). Every blood moon fell in perfect sequence upon Passover and Sukkot for two years in a row. Although blood moons are not uncommon, this specific pattern has not happened before, which technology can prove. What is not commonly known is that there was actually six blood moons. The year 2016 had a blood moon revealed again on Passover and Sukkot, repeating the same pattern. That would be three years in a row with a total of six blood moons, repeating the same consecutive pattern up until the time of 5777. The last blood moon was seen Monday, October 17th, 2016 at approximately 8 p.m. CDST.
Why is this pattern significant? Passover heralds the beginning of the Jewish year, and Sukkot heralds the end. God is clearly marking the beginning and the end for us, and He’s done so three times. The number three is His divine number. When we see the number three in scripture, that is the number that represents the Godhead and His divinity. It’s as if He says, “I’m putting my signature upon this.” Three is a holy number reserved for God alone, and is best recognized within the Holy Trinity. The number six represents man. Man was created on the sixth day, being made in the image of God. This is why 666 is the number of the antichrist. His number, being repeated three times, is an unholy trinity or mockery of God.
Please know, I have no way of proving this will be the last Jubilee. Am I certain myself? No, I’m not. But the signs are indeed compelling. However, I have felt it necessary to share these findings with you, to bring them to your attention, and I believe they are something very worthy of our consideration. I urge you to pray about it. Regardless of what you conclude, you are fully entitled to that opinion, and it is to be respected.

With that said, I think almost all of us could agree that we see the signs of the end times at hand in the heavens, the earth, and in Israel. Our LORD’s return, as well as our redemption, is drawing ever nigh.
Be ready. If this is our last Jubilee, many alive today will witness Christ’s return — believers and unbelievers alike. We must be ready. When considering the rapid acceleration of events and the biblical prophecy being fulfilled, much can transpire within the next fifty years. If the LORD should tarry, you’ve lost nothing by being prepared.
Again, the key is being ready, watching and praying, even as Christ instructed. That means staying vigilant, alert, and continually aware of world events through viable and reliable sources, and keeping yourself in prayer with the Body of Christ. Distraction is not something you can afford. This ministry exists to help you in that endeavor, and I’d like to invite you to subscribe to this blog if that is something you feel the LORD prompting you to do. We’d be honored to assist and accompany you on that journey.
#2. Watch & Pray. Be ready precisely as Christ instructed, regardless of when He comes.
Disclosure vs. Exposure
Right now we are watching God unearth, reveal, and expose decades of darkness with His light through individuals and entities who have no allegiance or direct ties to America. These third-party discoveries are massive both in quantity and consequence. The judgments being released upon the America, we can be certain will also come upon the Church. This will be especially true for those in ministry.
If you are in ministry and you are participating in unrepentant sin the LORD says, “Disclose it, or I will expose it.” That is something the LORD did give me permission to directly quote. The LORD is going to clean house. Judgment begins with the house of the LORD, and those things that slipped by for so long will no longer be tolerated or hidden. As a Body we have misinterpreted His longsuffering to be that of permission. Not so. God graciously gives us space and time to repent. That time for the Body of Christ collectively is drawing to a close. Get ready — in the coming months and years God will expose the ‘nakedness’ of many. We will soon witness ministers and ministries, large and small, particularly those of great wealth and notoriety who will find themselves face to face with God in a reckoning for which they were not prepared. They will be stripped and forced to step down. They will no longer be able to maintain secrecy through hiding.
After much prayer, the LORD made it clear that the disclosure He’s looking for is genuine biblical repentance. He desires a humble and contrite heart that breaks over sin with godly sorrow. We are told to confess our sins both to God and to one another that we may be healed. For some that means a private time with the LORD by which repentance is realized through fasting and prayer. For others it will require a confession of a different kind — one that is open or perhaps even public by which spouses, pastors, friends, and other leadership provide accountability.
God is shortening the proverbial leash. If you are a Christian, the LORD is going to pull in the reins. He’s going to begin dealing with His people individually. For those who will not repent and appropriately disclose, He will most certainly expose. The judgments decreed will be just.
#3. Repent. Come into His light and allow Him to address those private areas of hidden sin until genuine repentance and sanctification are achieved. He will expose all those who hide in darkness. God is tightening the reins upon His Church in this last hour.
Embracing Transition & Persevering with Patience
This particular point is more for American believers than any other, although it will affect the world.
Transition is extraordinarily painful and can be difficult. The term is most aptly applied in the medical field during childbirth, and denotes the time in which the baby enters the birth canal, and is finally brought forth from the womb. Although transition is the most painful part of labor and delivery, it’s also very brief compared to the other stages. It’s intense. It’s painful. But it’s also the most exciting. Transition is precisely that last stage that ushers forth deliverance!
With that said, there is no doubt that America is at a crossroads between (1) returning to her original state in which the founding father’s decreed the Declaration of Independence and ratified our Constitution, OR (2) joining the new one world order being pushed by the corrupt elite establishment through a false narrative and dark agenda, which is rooted in progressive liberalism (lawlessness).
It has been prophesied by many that Donald J. Trump will indeed win the presidency and take the Oval Office. If you are interested in such prophecies, I encourage you to research them for yourself. They won’t be hard to find. I only encourage you to check your sources, making sure they are reliable and valid. Those that intersect in agreement will be especially worthy of noting, provided they are not regurgitated second-hand accounts.
I believe Donald Trump will indeed win the presidency and take the Oval Office. God has spoken to me from that perspective, and there are several pertinent things we as Americans in the Body of Christ must keep in mind as our country moves forward during this critical and strategic time.
Although DJT is a man chosen by God to effect necessary change, we must remember that he is not God. Therefore, we must have realistic expectations of him, and what he can rightly accomplish with the necessary help and support of the American people. Despite the hype and excitement surrounding him, we must come down out of the clouds a bit, and remember what lies ahead. The corruption recently exposed has been breeding for decades. What he will accomplish in four to eight years will begin the process toward changes that may not be immediate. There is a lot of work to do. This man will face enormous challenges that will appear insurmountable. The darkness of the current administration goes extraordinarily deep, and it’s woven of a very tight and complex web of very powerful individuals.
Although God has appointed DJT in this critical hour to effect His sovereign will in America, we must be willing to look beyond his presidency if we’re going to be victorious. DJT is a modern-day Cyrus. He is going to bring restoration on many fronts, which are critical to this time in America. Make no mistake, the anointing of God is upon this man for the job at hand, and he will do it. But his presidency will only be for a season. Whether four or eight years, I do not know. There is much speculation on this. What I do know is that we need to have realistic expectations of DJT regarding what he can accomplish within the time frame allotted to him, provided he will have the support of the American people. He’s inheriting a corrupt administration that has been rooted in extraordinary darkness and deceit. What he finds will make his jaw drop. Yet God gave a spirit to DJT that is one of great resilience, passion, strength, and fortitude, and he has surrounded himself on every front with the very best advisors this nation has to offer. The connections he has, coupled with his experience in the worldwide market will enable him to do things few others would be able to accomplish. Let it be known: There is not another DJT.
Pray for the divine protection of Donald Trump, his family, and his advisors.
Again, God will use this man to affect the changes necessary — but they will take time, requiring the unwavering commitment and support of the American people. I encourage every American citizen, as well as every believer in Christ to pray for DJT like you’ve never prayed for a leader before. And I encourage you to be patient with him, understanding that he will witness things and become privy to things he could not have known, which will make him beholden to and accountable for things that will pose extraordinary challenges as the President of the United States. Yet with Christ and the support of the Church and the American people, those things God wants performed through DJT will come to pass. A few may happen quickly. However, most will occur slowly and steadily, even succeeding his term.
With that said, America is getting ready to enter into a time of transition, requiring the necessary fortitude to bring us out of the deep corruption that has been progressing for decades. Transition is hard. It’s not easy. But if we are to see the birth of these changes, and the delivery of America we so desperately need and desire, we must unite and pray, and persevere with patience the race set before us as a nation, of which every true American citizen is a part. That is the race Donald J. Trump is leading.
Donald J. Trump’s presidency will affect not only America, but the entire free world for the good of all mankind. He is indeed a modern-day Cyrus. Not to mention, he is also an avid supporter of Israel, which will restore God’s covenant blessing upon America as a nation, and as a people.
#4. Let us have realistic expectations of what DJT can accomplish and when. We are in this race together. Get ready to enter a season of intense transition, which can be painful and difficult, and persevere with patience the race set before us as American citizens who are believers. The delivery will be worth it.
The Damage Already Done
Part of having realistic expectations of DJT is understanding that many of the damages done by this present administration cannot be undone.
God is bringing all darkness into light — and He’s doing so in extraordinary ways through very brave people who have no allegiance to America. I find that amazing. And although we may procure justice and vindication for those things committed against us, that does not undo or diminish the damage done by them.
We cannot recover the classified information released to enemy nations, the money laundered, the lives lost in cold-blooded murder, and the many other disturbing consequences for decisions made in the Oval Office apart from the consent of Congress or the American people. Let us remember: There are consequences to consequences. They inherently multiply, in which their domino effect is far-reaching. And although DJT may put a screeching halt to what happens here in America as far as it depends upon us — let’s realize that what happens elsewhere may very much continue apart from our will by those who contend with us. Our enemies are not going to go away.
Let us understand that the consequences of the current administration are many. They are very dark, and they go very deep. Again, there have been things done that simply cannot be undone. Period. We may soften the blow by putting a stop to the corrupt processes in place, yet we must understand that does not necessarily equate with cessation elsewhere. Like the ripples in a pond by the pebble dropped within the water, consequences will likely continue although that initial pebble may be removed from its depths.
#5. We must move forward despite those things that cannot be recovered. Although necessary changes are made, certain consequences will inevitably continue, which we must be prepared to face as a nation, and to which only God Himself can bring ultimate justice and vindication.
Storing the Fifth
Donald J. Trump will bring a season of restoration in which we will see a resurgence in our economy. This will be a time where there may be excess, or perhaps even abundance. There will be many who have never had this before, and this will be something new which can be very tempting. Knowing how to handle that excess or abundance will be key.
Abundance naturally solicits a response that entices us to leisure, play, and even to squander our gain on the comforts and pleasures of life. We all do it. Every one of us. However, God is giving us word to do otherwise: Store your fifth. You’re going to need it in the coming years that succeed Donald Trump’s administration. The abundance he will acquire for us will not last forever. It will be only for a season.
Whatever you can save, by all means do so. Save more than you ever have. Do all you can to erase your debts — all of them. Make them disappear. Pay off the car. Pay off the house, gaining as much equity as possible. This will be your opportunity to make headway. For some of you — it will be giant.
The principle of ‘storing the fifth’ goes back to the story of Joseph in the book Genesis. God gave Joseph two dreams by which He revealed a season of plenty directly followed by a season of drought and famine. God gave Joseph a strategy that saved the entire realm of Egypt and every surrounding nation. They stored the fifth of their grain during the seven years of plenty. When the time of drought and famine came, the nations were sustained. Egypt was the only country with that supply, because they were the only country who had the Word of the LORD given to them by Joseph — and they heeded it at Pharaoh’s command. As a result, Egypt sold the grain to surrounding nations, becoming extraordinarily wealthy. Not only was this fifth of grain a survival for the nations — it was also a tactic of wealth by which God made Israel prosperous and rich through Egypt.
Donald J. Trump will do something very similar for America. But the American people will need to heed the Word of the LORD if they will be partakers of this promise. Otherwise, they may lose whatever profit or gain is afforded to them during his administration.
#6. Store your fifth. Scale down. Live simply instead of elaborately. Get out of debt. Save as much as possible. The abundance incurred via DJT’s administration will buy America time. It is not permanent. It will be only for a season by which God prepares His people for what’s yet to come.
Judgment and Persecution
Following the successful administration of Donald Trump, which will buy us time with respect to God’s timetable, America will eventually decline again, and enter into a time of judgment. How quickly that will take place, I do not know. All I know is that it is certain. I speak of years to come.
Many believe and teach that persecution unto death is not possible within America. I will boldly tell you: They are wrong. This does a great disservice to the Body of Christ by which most American believers fail to prepare to suffer for their LORD — much less unto death. Persecution unto death most certainly is — and it definitely will be something the American Church eventually faces. It’s merely a matter of time.
The judgment of God must begin with His Church. It will come. It must come. In the years ahead the Church in America will eventually undergo persecution as never seen, known, or experienced by mainstream nominal believers. As a result, the Church will be shaken and sifted by the LORD. We will all enter into His divine sieve, through which many will fall. All will be tested, tried, and proven by Him. The manner in which that happens will be very individual. Many will be deceived, and many will fall away, choosing not to suffer for the LORD. We will witness this with our own eyes. There will indeed be a great falling away, just as the LORD prophesied (see 2 Thess. 2:3 and Matthew 24:11-13), which will give rise to the antichrist.
Right now we see two major movements in the Church. One is toward global secularism, which teaches a powerless gospel that will do anything to avoid offending those living in sin and other abominations. The other is embracing a one world religion among many well-known charismatic leaders who have a global platform, telling us all gods are the same. These are similar in their objective, but different in their approach. Be aware that these movements are very dangerous, and are presented under the guise of a false ‘unity’. Be aware that both are advertising a false christ which is being propagated by an antichrist spirit that is operating. Such doctrines of demons are paving the path for the antichrist, and will be responsible for deluding and deceiving believers all over the world.
If you are a believer, your allegiance is to Christ Jesus alone — not to a specific church or man-made doctrine. If your church does not biblically address sin, then they are condoning it. If your church is not preaching the Jesus Christ in the Bible, then they are embracing a false christ.
Persecution, although it is unpleasant, is very brief when compared to eternity. And it is indeed promised. It comes in many various forms, of which death is only one. If you have never considered persecution, this will be something new which you must face with stalwart faith. Being a Christian is much more than living for Christ. All of us as believers must also consider that it may include dying for Him as well. That is part of counting the cost as a follower of Jesus Christ.
#7. Make your allegiance solely to Jesus Christ. Be prepared to embrace persecution in whatever manner it comes to you, regardless the cost. That means being prepared to drink the same cup of suffering Christ drank for us.
The Second Diaspora
When persecution hits the American Church, the ‘cream will rise to the top’. Meaning, those who are the elect bride — the true believers — will be found standing stalwart and strong, although many may suffer unto death.
As in the days of Noah and Lot, however, the LORD is going to give many of you an opportunity to flee, by which you may make an escape. If that is you, you’ll likely know precisely who you are. And if you don’t already, in due time you’ll know precisely where He wants you.
When persecution arose in the book of Acts, the early Church dispersed to the surrounding regions and the Gospel of Christ spread like wildfire as a result. They literally turned the whole world upside down. Prior to this dispersion the Church was a collective body who had all things in common. They met underground in Jerusalem in private homes. The unity and brotherhood they shared was very intimate as well as interdependent. This dispersion was accomplished by the twelve Apostles and Jew and Gentile believers.
The Church in America will experience something akin to this which will have similar results. Persecution will bring a collective unity and brotherhood like we’ve never seen before. But it will be for a season. American believers will suddenly disperse, and a second diaspora will take place in the Church, which will account for the last gathering of Gentiles, in which the fullness of the Gentiles will finally be reaped. When this happens, Israel’s salvation is finally at hand.
Again, the LORD will give many an opportunity to flee, just as in the days of Noah and Lot. Others, however, He will call to stay. This will be a time in which many will be tempted to follow others for the sake of community. Know your calling and heed the instruction God gives you. Follow Christ.
#8. Whether you are provided opportunity for escape, or are called to stay, make your calling and election sure.
As persecution increases the American Church will eventually go underground just to survive. Yet far prior to that happening we are going to witness a gradual move toward house churches which will become the norm instead of the exception.
World-wide ministry platforms are going to become nearly obsolete, and mainline denominations will struggle to survive — especially those who embrace sin, abominations, and the doctrines of men and devils. The wealth and notoriety of many ministers and ministries will become something of the past. That era will end. With that said, God will once again restore His Church to the ministry of the Holy Spirit through whom we make disciples of Christ, instead of disciples of men.
God is getting ready to purify for Himself a Body of believers who know, love, and serve Him in Spirit and Truth according to His Word. They will not bend, break, or compromise. These will be those who stand firm to the end, enduring the hardship of persecution and suffering for their LORD. And they will do so joyfully and with much gladness of heart.
#9. God has chosen for Himself a holy remnant who will embrace His refining fire.
In the coming weeks and months we’re going to witness a move of justice in America that will bring great relief coupled with enormous excitement, followed by prosperity in various forms. Please keep your head on straight and your heart in alignment. As much as you should rejoice in the LORD, be equally vigilant with the foreknowledge He’s provided so you may prepare accordingly.
We are all in this together.
With respect to the years just ahead, they will be very, very strategic — not only for America, but for the Church — both on a global scale. Be careful not to fall prey to languishing afforded by the sudden prosperity brought to America through the administration of Donald J. Trump. That is not God’s purpose or intention. Again, DJT is God’s instrument to restore righteousness, dignity, security, and integrity to this nation as a people, as well as a measure of wealth and economic resurgence that will allow us to accomplish the necessary tasks ahead.
Be vigilant during this time. This is not a time to be swept away with the vanity that prosperity would afford. Instead, dig deep and lay a solid foundation for your future in the LORD.
#10. Steward this time and opportunity very wisely.
If we miss this boat, another one won’t be coming.
As for the next fifty-year era on God’s timeline, these points are only a few God would have me put forth. I am sure there are many more He would have you to heed according to His Word. I encourage you to seek His face.
Regardless of God’s call on your personal life and the part you will play in the end times, as God’s elect you have a responsibility to the LORD to be found a faithful, wise, and good steward of all He’s entrusted to you, so you may be found worthy to stand before the Son of Man.
Let us remember: The remnant will be few.
I pray this word has blessed you. If so, please share it. But more than anything, I pray you will prayerfully heed it. God bless you.
