Rosh Chodesh XII
Surviving the Coming Tribulation
Chag sameach Rosh Chodesh kol beit Yisra'el and Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon and welcome to the first day of the twelfth and last month of the current biblical year as well as the last month of the current Yovel or Jubilee Year.
The Death of Western Civilisation
We will not see grace like this again until Messiah returns to put all things right. It grieves my heart that there has been so little repentance in the world as people turn their hopes to human political saviours instead of to the Saviour of mankind. We are witnessing the slow death of our former Christian civilisation which has become so exhausted because it has ceased to believe in anything any longer.
A Society of Adolescents
Because of our abandonment of Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), we in Europe, America and the rest of the Western nations have created a retarded society of permanent adolescents. Our civilisation is deservedly, though tragically, being overrun by a more aggressive and cohesive primitive one. Our Western people, insulated from the most basic pressures of life by the nanny state, have left all the important decisions in life to government, including what to believe about life and existence.
The 'progressive', 'multi-cultural' mindset, not only is in major denial over there being anything to argue about anymore, because it refuses to acknowledge it could ever be wrong, but has, in a frenzy of self-righteous delusion, set about neutering society completely. We don't even know what gender we are anymore. Western civilisation has shortcircuited itself and opened the gates to the barbarian.
A Fatal Torpor
For a vast number of people, final lines of no return have been crossed. When personal responsibility and accountability has been abrogated to others, allowing governments to annex most of the core functions of adulthood, then you know that a fatal torpor has set in from which millions will never recover. The world has anaethetised itself and opened itself up to whatsoever dark powers wish to do to it. There is no rhyme nor reason left in a society that has cut itself off from its historical roots.
Half of Humanity Will Perish
You know, because of what Scriptures says, that what is coming it not good. You know that a great destruction is coming in which half of mankind will perish. The first wave will claim a quarter of humanity (Rev.6:7-8), nearly two billion people, to be followed by a second wave that will claim a third of what remains following the first wave (Rev.9:13-19).
Turning Back to Politicians
I warned you of this last August and Yahweh has been moving me to warn you again and again to make preparations for several years now. Because things have more or less continued as before over the past months, many have stopped taking the warnings seriously, and have returned to the way they thought and acted before. Instead of turning to Yah'shua (Jesus) for confirmation, they have, with reckless abandon, started leaning on the arm of flesh of their political leaders again. They could not be more seriously wrong.
Tribulation and Hungering for Truth
As the first phase of the destruction commences in the West, and indeed over the whole planet, both nominal believers and unbelievers will start hungering for the emet (truth) of the Besorah (Gospel) again as people stop believing in the false preachers who cannot deliver anything of spiritual value to them because they are too busy deceiving with false doctrine and fleecing their flocks for filthy lucre.
The Best and Worst of Times
Where you are geographically, both now and for the rest of your life, is as important as prepping for food, medicine, water and other essentials. Charles Dickens, writing about the chaos that followed the French Revolution, wrote in A Tale of Two Cities:
In Whom Have You Trusted?
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity."
In Dickens' story, London was the place of safety while Paris the place of revolution, totalitarianism, anarchy and death. Soon all cities will be like Dickens' Paris (modern Paris, with all the rioting there, is looking eerily similar) along with a good deal of the countryside, not to mention coastal areas. It is your choice whether what you pass through will result in the best of times or the worst. It's your choice. And it will depend to whom you turn for your wisdom and deliverance. If you cannot see the signs of what is about to break forth then you have truly been blinded by the flesh.
Aftermath of Collapse
The long-awaited socio-economic collapse of North America and Europe is not far off and could happen any day now. As the stock market plummets, hyperinflation will cripple commerce and the mounting crisis will pass the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure will fail, resulting in wholesale rioting and looting in every major city. As hoardes of refugees and looters pour into the streets, those unwise enough to have remained are unlikely to have much chance of escape. As transportation and law enforcement disappear, and as the military starts rounding up civilians into FEMA camps, so the fate of the city-dwellers will be sealed. Add military conflict between the nations, and the situation just gets much worse. Gene Roddenbury notes:
Division into Two Types of Person
"...nuclear warfare is not necessary to cause a break down of our society. You take a large city like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago - their water supply comes from hundreds of miles away and any interruption of that, or food, or power for any period of time you're going to have riots in the streets. Our society is so fragile, so dependent on the networking of things to provide us with goods and services, that you don't need nuclear warfare to fragment us anymore than the Romans needed it to cause their eventual downfall."
Society will immediate segregate into the rogues and the decent people. Your obedience to Yahweh in being in the right place will ensure that you find yourself amongst the right people. As Oliver Cromwell said, "a few honest men are better than numbers". Unless you have done a lot of prior homework and checked out areas and made contact with preppers and survivalists willing to have you, without revelation from Yahweh you are going to be very vulnerable even if you get far away from the cities. I guarnantee very few people have done any serious planning and are simply hoping to 'chance' it. But what a gamble, especially if you are responsible for others' lives. Preparedness is everything which is why this message has been sent out years in advance. As the old song goes:
Preparing in Advance
"The sun went down an hour ago,
I wonder if I face toward home.
If I lost my way in the light of day
How shall I find it now night is come."
The 'good' places - the safe places - will not be served up on a plate. You have to get them ready in advance:
"The prudent see danger and take refuge,
Being Led by the Ruach
but the simple keep going and suffer for it"
Now I know that not all have the resources to do this and Yahweh makes allowances for such. However, there is one vital thing they must do which if they fail at will leave them floundering. You have got to have a relationship with Yah'shua (Jesus) - and you have got to be able to hear Him and be willing to respond to His revelation to you. That goes for those as much to those who are able to prep as to those who are not. The people who are led to places of safety, because they have trusted Yahweh and responded to the Ruach (Spirit), will also be delivered. And perhaps some will be dragged there by His undeserved loving kindness - His grace. But as I have said so many times before, if you have refused to prepare when you could have done, you will be entirely responsible for your fate.
Your Choice to be a Freeman or a Serf
Whoever you are, prepared or unprepared, there is one thing you must absolutely expect and that is to be pruned - not slightly but severely. Your whole lifestyle will have to change overnight, the things you once took for granted will no longer be there, your expectations in being provided for by others will have to go out the window. Suddenly you won't have any 'rights' as the secular world calls them. Most of the trappings of organised society will be gone. There won't be any foodstamps, no government social welfare. All that government provides will be over...unless you agree to become a slave in the feudal system the élites have planned for those they don't liquidate. You will need to take the Mark of the Beast to be 'safe' there. So your first choice will be to become a freeman or a serf.
The Disadvantage of State Dependency
Believers have become as dependent on the state system as unbelievers so they are going to be at an enormous disadvantage. The country folk, who know how to work the land and defend themselves, will be at the top of the pile of the freemen. Believers - and particularly the coddled Remnant city-dwellers will face huge challenges. For one thing, to be accepted into a community which will feed you will mean you will have to offer something in exchange: skills. Social workers, psychologists, musicians, politicians, actors, artists, bureaucrats, secretaries, businessmen and the like will be of zero use.
You Will Need Practical Skills
Practical skills will be like gold: farming, manual labour, medical, teaching, mechanical, military, building, plumbing, and other such skills will be premium. The things the city valued will be at the bottom of the pile in the new world. So what can you do? What could you offer? There will have to be a major adaptation to a whole new set of realities. What will be the most desirable, useful skill, do you think?
Other Disasters to Remember
"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilizations" (Daniel Webster).
I haven't even mentioned things like earthquakes, tsunamis, famine, drought and other potential (and very likely) disasters yet. If half the world population is slated for elimination, you can bet the victims will fall to many different life-threatening hazzards. Our cosy world, in spite of its problems, will be gone in most places.
A Prophetic Dream - the Plummetting Plane
I had a dream a few nights ago, quite a frightening one, which made me aware of what is going to happen to the survivors inside themselves. I was in a commercial airliner and everything was normal. Suddenly, and without warning, the plane nose-dived and started hurtling towards the earth at great speed. The G-forces were enormous, I could feel myself pressed helplessly into the seat. I began to pray for loved ones. And then the plane flipped and I did not know whether we were the right way up or upside down because there was no means of orientation as it was dark outside. What happened afterwards I do not know.
Mental Breakdowns After Collapse
This is what the psychological aftermath of the destruction is going to be like. People are going to have mental breakdowns because they won't be able to cope. Those dependent on psychotropic drugs are unlikely to make it. Don't think the physical hardship will be the worst part. No, it will be the complete internal reorientation that will be the most traumatic thing people will have to face. The things that people have habitually leaned on - the welfare state, conveniences, political correctness, entitlements, socialist mental paradigms, etc. - will be shredded like a tornado tearing through a town.
In Search of Leaders
They will be like pre-pubescent children - adolescents - in need of strong parenting because they are so immature. They will seek for leaders, replacements for the government institutions they so heavily leaned on, and either head like animals to the slaughter into the cities or find themselves under the control of unscrupulous people offering food and shelter in exchange for servitute. Or they will simply perish in unfamiliar environments for which they are not prepared.
When it comes to self-defence, Europe is going to be a lot worse off than America. The citizens of European nations were disarmed long ago which is why the right to bear arms is so important. Guns and ammunition will be worth gold. Deep government in America has been trying to disarm citizens as we know from the recently ousted Obama régime.
New Culture Shock
"...arms...discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...Horrid mischief would ensure where (the law-abiding) deprived of the use of them" (Thomas Paine).
A huge culture shock awaits both the new freemen as well as the new serfs. Those things which worked in the government-controlled cities will not work in the free world of survival where individual initiative will mean everything. One good thing about the enormous upheaval that is coming is that it will make men men, and women women, again. All the 'paper genders' that the liberal left have invented will disappear amongst freemen. There won't be any more 'snowflakes' in either community. Freemen will rediscover what it was like to be free again but first they will have to go through a baptism of fire as they are forced to quickly mature:
"You have never lived,
'till you have almost died.
As for those who fight for it,
life has a flavor that the protected will never know" (Anon).
I have not mentioned money. If you have digital money in your bank or paper money in your wallet, it will soon be useless as the system that created it disappears, save in the Prison Cities. The currency of freemen will be food, medicine, skills and weapons. Later, as bartering gives way to currency, gold, silver and other precious metals will come into their own. You will find no devotees to the US Dollar or to the European €uro. So don't expect to be able to trade with either because they will become valueless. Something will eventually replace them, a global electronic currency, but it will not be accessible to freemen without them first become serfs to the system and ceasing to be freemen.
Pressure Makes Diamonds
Freemen will change. They will mature and become true men and women. "Pressure makes diamonds," said General Patton, the one thing that triggers and overwhelms 'snowflakes'. "Put your trust in Elohim (God)," said Valentine Blacker in Oliver's Advice, "and keep your powder dry." The freemen will trust in Yahweh and make sure they are armed.
The Fate of Nations
I cannot say how our countries will turn out, whether they will hold together or fragment. Eventually, of course, global government will come to pass, of a sort, but it will be like clay mixed with iron - it will be stronger in some places and weaker in others. A very different world is going to start taking shape. I would not put too much stock in the government of the future - try to live under their radar. For as George Washington reminds us:
Keeping Communities Clean
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
It's impossible to say how things are going to turn our nationally and politically. Things may be very fluid for a while. As populism rises, so dictatorships will arise to threaten and suppress it. It remains to be seen what happens as Empires collapse and new ones form. All communities that form - and of course, my main interest is in the Remnant - will face all kinds of threats and challenges. Keeping these communities 'clean' will be one of the first orders of business, and that means showing mercy to those who are decent and honourable but showing no pity to those who would bring with them forces of destruction:
Strictness and Discipline
"The time to guard against corruption and tyranny is before they shall have gotten hold of us. It is better to keep the wolf out of the fold than to trust to drawing his teeth and talons after he shall have entered" (Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia).
That is why strictness and discipline are a necessary part of any successful Christian/Messianic community and why it will be a matter of life and death for the Remnant. And that is why we in this ministry are most strict about who may enter the Chavurat Bekorot (the Melchizedek Priesthood Order of NCAY) and those who may not. It is hard to enter this Order though easy enough to leave it. The sensibleness of such a policy becomes readily apparent in times of crisis, the likes of which we are soon to enter, the likes of which the world has never seen before.
Food is Power
The élites know that food is power and they are not ashamed to abuse it. Catherine Bertini, the United Nations Food Program Director in 1997, made that plain when she said:
Self-Sufficiency in Food Essential
That is why the Remnant must be self-sufficient in food. Once you become dependent on government for it, as modern city-based society has, then you are not your own master and the rulers will use it to change your behaviour and control you. They will turn you into serfs. That is why you must learn to habitually grow it as well as to store surplus. You should not be storing food just for the current emergency - you need to make it a way of life. Learn from Joseph of Egypt. And that means listening carefully to the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit).
This, then, is a summary of what ought to have been done by Remnant believers long ago and if it still hasn't been done, it needs to be done immediately. The day of postponement is over. Indeed, there may be little or no time left at all. Above all, Remnant believers need to form cooperatives - there is safety in numbers and food production is made much simpler with many hands. The day of establishing firstborn communities prior to the Final Gathering is most certainly at hand. And it is best to get the experience in peace time rather than be forced to learn in times of emergency with a rifle strapped across your back.
I hope that this will inspire many of you into action. This is the message that Yahweh has once again strongly led me to give you. Get on your knees, enquire of Yahweh, and then do what He tells you without hestitating. You may regret it if you don't. Amen.
