Right about now you have come to realize this is a word press site and a free account, which means the first page you see shows the most recent blog I have done. The downside to this is that all you see is a series of blogs instead of something loosely resembling a site. Please bear with me as I learn how to better deal with this chaos.
For we are of One Spirit
Serving One Lord
OSOL is about the Church at a particular time and place. The time would be the regime of the Anti-Christ, the place would be anywhere and everywhere. We have been told so many things especially in the American Churches that if things don’t go as we have been told they will, a nice “I’ll fly away oh Glory” rapture before ever the first discomfort is felt. After all we are persecuted enough aren’t we? With all respect to those who truly are, a get out trial card would be nice, unfortunately it is looking more and more like we might actually takes some heat. I don’t mean the persecutions of the other nations although that too could be coming our way, and in recent years has begun to make itself subtly known, but rather the time of tribulation.
In a related blog http://lastbookofthebible.wordpress.com/ I am studying that book and so far I see a survivable impact. The natural disasters and ecosytem disruptions some of which are global and some of which are more localized will not end our planet but it will make for “interesting times”.
Where does the church fit in all this? How does fellowship survive in this environment? What if when the Anti-Christ comes we all become homeless or on the run and off the grid? Those are questions in need of discussion at the very least and answers at best.
In a bible study I attend once a week we are beginning discussion on Christian Community in the eyes of Dietrich Bonnhoeffer. Bonnhoeffer was a pastor in Nazi Germany who felt that to not get involved in doing the right thing even if it were perceived as evil was to make of little effect one’s Christian beliefs. Somehow I will be posting on this study. The actual study audio links can be found on the Christian Community Page and also at mcmtffr.org under the Friday Night Bible study page and the Life Together drop down menu. All of the studies are contained on yourlisten.com/marycraig.
It is my hope that Bonhoeffer’s insights may answer some of the more pressing questions.
At this time however…
Right now OSOL is informing. But when … if … a day comes where Believers can no longer live in harmony or obedience to a rule of law that forces them renounce the faith then OSOL intends so much more. We have an AGENDA of our own.
Now let it be known right up front:
We DO NOT resist ANY current government.
We are not anarchists or rebels because at this point in time the governments of the nations are God tolerated.
If they were not they wouldn’t be in existence. None of these current governments has as it head a person completely indwelt by The Satan himself. Practically every religious people group however is looking for their “golden child” the one who is predicted to come and do something special for them and them alone. Like the Islamic Mahdi. Their “messiah” who is supposed to apparently lead the Muslim world into a real Holy Jihad against their enemies. This person one who tells the Christian world he is THE CHRIST come to build his kingdom on Earth without the sign of the Real Christ come is the one to be opposed and with great vigor. The opposition should only occur once this person is in power as Antichrist. UNTIL THEN the command of God to PRAY and strive to live within the laws of in OBEDIENCE to whatever national government the reader may be in (even the lousy ones with bad dictators who oppress Christians or who govern really badly or are on the side of those who seek to prepare the nations for the coming of the Anti-Christ) is MANDATED. Do we honestly believe that God cannot divinely take down rulers governments nations without human intervention of any sort if HE feels its in His best interests? If you don’t your God is to small.
However all of the Christian world or rather all Christians in the nations ARE ONE in ONE FAITH ONE BODY under ONE BAPTISM and are to preserve that unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Eph 4:3) we are to grow up till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Eph 4:13) This is what these who want to be in the rule of AntiChrist do not want. It all goes back to the battle of the seeds and the promise Jesus fulfilled and is fulfilling in Gen 3:16. The Seed of the Serpent vs The Seed of the Woman.
Who are these people and what are they doing to try to destroy both the Christians and the Hebrews? Judaism has been in the bulls eyes of the target of the Enemy for as long as it has existed and the best ploy ever used was to get the Children of Israel to compromise their position before God and LOSE HIS BLESSING. Balaam taught Balak to do it. The Moabite women came and teased off the Hebrew men. Numbers. Today they entice the Church wherein the Christian nation is found to compromise in ways that cost them TO LOSE GOD’S BLESSING ( having the latest toys and all the worldy goods is NOT the sign of God’s Blessing or favor. God being happy with you because the Life Exchange of Jesus is progressing IS. You may have material wealth of a sort because of this …. you might not) God’s aim fellow Christian is to make you perfect as He is perfect. To sanctify you completely and holy to present you without spot or wrinkle to the praise of His glory on that day. (Matt 5:48, Rom 12:2, Heb 5:9, 1Pet 5:10, Jas 4:8, Eph 5:27, Eph 1:6, 12, Eph 5:26) Meanwhile the world we live in is quietly being ruled by those who are intent on depopulating The Kingdom as fast and as perfectly as they can. They have agendas and feed their greed. God tells us openly about these people and warns us not to be sucked up into their little devises.
Jud 1:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
Jud 1:2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
Jud 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jud 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Jud 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Jud 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
Jud 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
Jud 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
Jud 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
Jud 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Jud 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Jud 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
Jud 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Jud 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
Jud 1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
Jud 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Jud 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Jud 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
Jud 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Jud 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Jud 1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Luk 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
Daniel Ezekiel Hosea and a lot of the other Old Testament prophets speak of this type of people.
They look like us but they are not and they are very slick at what they teach and how they lead. They are on the streets, in the classroom teaching or being taught, they are in our law enforcement and are biased when they have to attend to us. They run our city state and federal governements and make the laws or interpret thoe laws already written to suit THE AGENDA. They are serving even in the pulpit or in the administration of the local church. They hide in plain site are some are programmed to fit in completely. How do we know the difference? By opening our eyes and paying attention and letting God cause the Gift of Discernment to operate in us to KNOW them which labor in the midst. We are to be known by OUR FRUITS and that we have an uncanny love for each other and know each other no matter where we may be from. Likewise they are also KNOWN BY THEIR FRUITS.
Now forewarned is forearmed so I intend to let those who have been researching all this speak for themselves. Most of them are conspiracy theorist and regarded as “nuts”. Many people will come on this site and say “oh another conspiracy theorist nut job site…. ho hum … press the back key” I will try to piece together a big picture from what all I see around me by God’s grace. It wont be pretty but I am not proposing we badn together and start something to overthrow the nad people ( we will have become as they are by the time we are though that road.) Neither do I suggest we run around like chicken little or chicken without heads in a blind panic. I DO know there will be a catching away BUT not as is currently taught. I am told I hold to one of eight different positions on the End Times. All I know is this one comes from much study of scripture and fits accurately. What I hope will happen is that you the reader will have a major wake up call and begin to THINK. Think for yourself and read the Bible for yourself in the Presence of God through the Holy Spirit and seek to prepare for the time that is now here. The pain has begun and unless you are from another world your life has been touched by all the recent disaster and mayhem that we call Acts of God. That in mind you are preparing to stand with The King who is Faithful and True as He defeats His enemies. The Day of the Lord is just that … the day He returns to undo the plot of the AntiChrist to TAKE JERUSALEM for himself and RULE FROM IT. He will slaughter the opposition and we will render our praise to Him. (Read Ezekiel)
They have an AGENDA
They have ORGANIZATIONS to facilitate the carry off of the Agenda
They use the spirit world and devises we might see in the making of a spy to unite the Organizations into common causes to continue to carry out The Agenda.
They have memberships and meetings and activities and …. lots of money to buy whole governements and corporations and orginizations and such to serve the carrying out of their Agenda
They have prestigious names, names we have looked up to for years. They own us because of our own greed. They tolerate noone revealing them. It will be interesting to see what they try with me. But GREATER is He who is in us than he who is OUT IN THE WORLD.
Having looked at their Agenda and tied up as many organizations as what limited sources point out; one thing stands out clearly. The biggest scariest thing this Agenda has had is to foster a world united without boundaries, socio economic classes (in their eyes, the socio-economic mess still remains in actuality), made to think in a common manner. Materialized and mostly mortgaged to the hilt. Weakened by a lessening standard of education, an advertising industry that has shaped and molded this generation and the previous older generation and the generation that is up and coming right now, and those who are yet to be; into a materialistic consumer hungry buying machine. Further weakened by a lessening moral standard and leadership that often makes promises it cannot keep so as to create a systematic societal distrust among the young who will eventually be our leadership, and the current “suits” in “power”, thus further eroding the fragile fabric of this nation and by extension all the nations who do commerce with her.
In this nation when 911 happened it fatally wounded our economy by virtue of all the business that was interrupted and the ongoing war that has followed. In a just war which perhaps was the case of the two world wars we were involved in and most apparent in the first, war was a boon to economy. But after Vietnam the way war is waged changed so radically that it became unjustly fought and perhaps the powers that rule us caused unjust war which did not profit us but may have perhaps further broken us as a society. Now it would seem that our government can and does spy on us. Nova did an expose where in the NSA admitted to listening in on all foreign in coming and DOMESTIC calls. If you have internet and Hulu will let you which it might even without premium go to the Nova channel and look for The Spy Factory
(as I was typing this back in around 2011 or so I was listening to the program and though I have a Hulu+ account I did NOT sign in. Since this time the same program showed up on Netflix. However as of today in 2016 I have found the same Nova presentation on youtube. This is the link) In it an author named James Banford did a book on the NSA. Basically, president Bush signed a executive order removing the restriction on the NSA against listening in on Americans. Apparently according to some janitor in a California ATT building they have a mirror system running along side the collection of international call traffic, which merges with our own through that building. ( I hope the URL provided in the link works but if it doesn’t look for Nova and that program.)When the current president took office, our markets fell in what was billed as the worst since the depression. Electronic runs on banks replaced the physical ones and the very rich who foresaw this crash quietly removed most of their wealth, wealth that is the funding foundation for both big and small business and a growing economy. I firmly believe the fall started with the massive data and communication and life losses of 911. ( it may be that this nation is the fallen lady of Revelation and that the financial smoke of her end would cause everyone else to distance from us.)
By the grace of God OSOL wills to be committed to the needs of the people of the Body of Christ in the day of Anti-Christ. For he wills to make war with us saints and in so doing is to prevail. But we wont be here so what’s the deal?
Wont we? In the book of Revelation as far along as after the Lamb has taken the 144 thousand away and the 3 witneses have resurrected and left and the massive earthquake that dealt with Jerusalem and the new temple there and all that we find the call for “someone” to come out from “babylon” which is FALLEN. Now prophesy can be multiply fulfilled so all you eschatology buffs beware, if the Sanhedrin of Jesus day got it wrong are we any better? Does the taking of the 144 thousand mean rapture? Does the call to come out during the pouring of the vials mean the church is still here or there are still Elect needing to “get the message” ? Even so fish got to swim and birds go to fly and bills and taxes go to be paid and how will I eat or be clothed or (keep up with those unsaved Joneses) when old Anti Christ says “take my mark or no buying or selling for you!”???
Do you want to know a little more about the Last Book of the Bible? Come look at this Blog lastbookofthebible.
You would not believe what the world can survive and you would not believe what could drive nations to follow a nightmare. Do you truly know who the antichrist really is? Did you know there is more than one Beast? Check it out.
If the church does indeed go through being cast our of the national system of buying and selling it will mean:
Jobless, no mark, no ability to pay, no background check, no employability.
Without work in short order they are:
In Florida at any rate we found it was illegal to live in a shelter WITHOUT Electric AND Water. (Now homeless who squat will tell you that one can get those amenities if one has an income and can get accounts to hook up said amenities to the “domicile” I am one who did just such a thing one year a while back)
How do you shop when you have no money???? Worse still you had a bank account with plenty of money and when the choice had to be made you couldnt wipe out your accounts fast enough and worse still because the system has changed your cash is USELESS! (Consider the mom with a newborn! How does she manage to keep her health up enough to “make milk” for the child?) Consider the mom with small children she can’t feed?
Add to this the shock of betrayal of a decision putting one in such a horrible estate and that “Your Church” told you this wouldn’t be a problem!
Moreover you are an enemy. In a regime that wants your allegiance by taking a seemingly harmless mark to “live and thrive” in it but taking it would mean disloyalty to The Lamb, you are instantly NOT IN AGREEMENT or LOYAL to said regime. If we know anything about suppresive goverments we know that if you’re not for them you’re seen as being against them even if there isnt a violent bone in your body, you are persona no grata… not wanted and a THREAT.
This is what can await us if what I have come to understand is correct. So what to do? How do we live in a day like that?
Deitrich Bonhoeffer had about the same sort of problem during world wqar two in Nazi Germany and wrote on it. A bible study time was devoted to his writings and I also did a few pieces on the topic myself. Come and see
