And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
The reed is used to make a measurement. To measure the size of something. Revelation 21:15,16. I suggest that what God is saying here is to determine the magnitude of the believers represented by the temple and the altar. These are those who we would now call Messianic believers. Compare with the following verse. Only the Jews were allowed to enter the temple. Gentiles never could.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
A very great delusion has entered the Christian churches. This is related to the teaching that the saved born again believers will be “raptured” from Earth and taken to heaven before the rise of the AntiChrist and the global beast system develops. They teach that believers will avoid any widespread persecution, tribulation, or afflictions.
I do believe that the Lord will return for the believers but in the Day of the Lord, at the end when Christ returns to judge the living and the dead. What I am talking about here is the timing of the “rapture” of the church, which will not be secret, but “every eye” shall see Christ’s coming. (Revelation 1:7)
Recently a brother in Christ told me about his pastor preaching a sermon where the pastor claimed those who teach that the church will go through tribulation are ‘doomsy’ preachers. I never had heard that word before. From numerous scriptures and from church history it is plain to see that the believers have suffered enormously under persecution. Hebrews chapter 11 alone teaches us that.
The picture on the left is the planned Amazon Arlington (VA, USA) headquarters which will be a 350-foot tall “Helix,” composed of steel, glass and even live trees. (Image: NBBJ, Amazon). The picture on the right is an artist rendering of the original Tower of Babel, which was built by Nimrod in his efforts to reach up to heaven.
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
4 And they said, “Come, let us build us a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men built.
6 And the Lord said, “Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be withheld from them which they have imagined to do.
7 Come, let Us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off building the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel [that is, Confusion], because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
What does the word meek really mean? What does it mean in the Bible? How has the meaning changed?
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Jesus was meek but he also whipped the money changers from the Temple. He was no snowflake, cowering in submission. He was strong.
And in the Old Testament we read:
Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.
But Moses is the guy that challenged the ruler of the world, the Pharaoh of Egypt and lead 6 million captives, children of Israel, out of the system into the promised land. He endured 40 years in the wilderness and then just as they were to enter he was not permitted to go in.
World events are speeding ahead at a record pace now, and it should be clear to just about everyone by now that we are witnessing a grand master plan to roll out a New World Order.
There are very many signs now that we are facing an imminent collapse of our society’s infrastructure, something few Americans are prepared to deal with. If some of these things being predicted, BOTH in the corporate media as well as in the alternative media, come to pass, we are going to see massive deaths and destruction at a level that will make 2020 and the COVID lockdowns seem like a vacation in comparison.
It’s time to choose sides, but sadly, the vast majority of the public is clueless as to what those sides are. There are rumblings among the Trump supporters that some states’ election results are going to be overturned, and there is a lot of speculation now that the Office of the President of the United States may soon be turned back over to Donald Trump.
Reposted from an article published April 24, 2021 by BIBLE & SCIENCE DIFFUSION written by Jacques Duverger, translated from French with Google translate. There are a few places that are not so clear. But the article expresses the view that is not only applicable to France under Macron but also applies to most of the Western World. The demons are now in charge and will use this fake pandemic to gain more power over the populace if we let them.
Through the networks of powers formed around his financial power, Bill Gates has transformed in recent years into a great hunter of the bodies and souls of men, like the first king of Babel Nimrod (Genesis 10: 8-10).
As the true chief architect of the new Babylon of the 21st century, technological Babylon – Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Media , and soon Big Farm and Big Food – he has been able to create the focal point of all the kings and merchants of the earth on the march towards world governance. It even seems that his futuristic anticipations and his obsession with vaccines – a vaccine, a passport, a Guide – make him a prophet spokesperson for this politico-religious beast described by the prophet Daniel and whose technology allows image projection (Revelation 13:15).
It’s January 2021, the world is in lockdown and our economy is on the brink of collapse.
Will the new vaccine enable our lives to return back to normal or does it mark a pivotal point in the evolution of humanity (one that is driven by artificial intelligence, will reimagine capitalism and be governed by extreme tyrannical laws that are dictated by global elites)?
