This would mean that God will be pulling his angels out and letting Satan take over.
Sorry, but I find this incredibly difficult to believe. The Lord's ministry on Earth won't be over until until the demons are locked up in hell.
I am curious - what kind of church do you belong to? Do you pray in the Spirit, receive words of knowledge, witness healing and the casting out of
demons? These sorts of signs (and others, such as prophecy) will follow those that believe. Seeing as I can still pray in tongues, and can hear the
Lord's Spirit speak with me every now and then, and seeing that he is showing me visions and giving me dreams, I know for certain that His ministry
isn't finished yet.
The reason why many people will perish is that when the time comes, Christians must walk away from the world and follow Him for saety. These
what I call cities of God will sprout up everywhere and move when necessary. But all the commandments must be followed. But don't get the do not kill
commandment confused. You can protect yourselves but do not lay in wait to ambush and kill ppeople.
I find this bit troubling. I understand where you're coming from, ie leaving Babylon, but I think that when the time comes for this to occur, it
will be plain as day that the time is come. People should think very carefully, and pray earnestly for direction, before walking away from their
responsibilities. Until the signs of the times make it obvious that society is on the brink of submission to the antichrist, we are bound to operate
in the world, but not to be 'of the world'.
In addition, you are telling people to submit to the rule of Law (as described in the Mosaic Law/ ten commandments). If we were saved by the Law,
then Jesus would not have needed to have come to Earth in the first place. We are saved by grace - unmerited favour, undeserved and priceless. We
should aim to sin less, but be aware that until the rapture, our sin nature is intact and will cause us to stumble.
There will be a Rapture type of event but not how most Christians envision it. Calamities and supernatural events will be all over the world
and confuse people. The mark of the beast will be given out and be in some sort of vaccine.
Here, you claim several points of knowledge that are personal to you, and 'not known' to most other Christians. Be careful that you are not
building up yourself over Christ by claiming full knowledge over future events.
The idea that the mark will be given in a vaccine is pretty ridiculous, as a vaccine would be taken on trust - the participants would not be
accountable for receiving a vaccine from people who are supposed to have their best interests at heart. When the mark of the beast is issued, it will
be obvious that the person receiving it is submitting to worldly powers/ demonic powers instead of submitting to God. Therein lies the
I will probably use something like cat little , salt, etc to mark the outside (of my house, for protection) when its time.
This is remarkably close to witchcraft. In fact, it effectively is witchcraft. Be very careful. Jesus does not advocate witchcraft.
When the aying young men will have dreams and old men will prophesy, it is talking about people like me.
No, it isn't talking about people like you. It's talking about all sorts of different types of people who have come to faith in the Lord since His
ministry started on Earth 2000 years ago. Again, you're placing yourself on a pedestal - be careful.
They take all this money and people are on the verge of poverty while they Church lives the good life. First, you don't need a Church to find
Jesus as your savior. Find truth by reading the Bible for yourself.
1 - You are generalising, and making a judgment call against people. Be careful.
2 - You need to be in fellowship with like-minded believers, in a church where the Spirit is active. Otherwise Satan can twist you round and round
and you wouldn't even notice until something truly terrifying happens. Trust me - I've tried to live the Christian life solo - it doesn't work.
3 - Reading the Bible without the guidance of people who walk in the Spirit is a sure-fire way to open yourself up to doubt, confusion - even
abandonment of the faith due to a lack of understanding. It is crucial that you do not attempt to isolate yourself in the pursuit of truth. Many
times in the Bible (beyond counting almost) it is made clear that nobody should be walking the path alone.
I have seen 2 types of demons in my life. I know how to banish them.
Again, you are escalating yourself (''I know how
...'') instead of giving God the glory. Be careful.
I have some other points to make regarding what you've written (it's not all critical, I promise)
