Scripture reading: II Thessalonians 2:1-10

God is bringing forth an army and this army is going to face some things that the men of old did not face.  Paul said in I Corinthians 15:32 that he fought “with beasts at Ephesus…after the manner (similitude) of men.”  Paul, however, never faced some of the things and the kind and the quality of man beasts that we are going to have to face in our time and in this end of the age.  God put it in the Word that it is at the end of the age that “the beast” is formed.  It is “THE” beast, not “a” beast.  Not “one of” the beasts, but the epitome of all the beasts—the beast of beasts.  The “666” is going to be formed before you come forth in Christ.  That means we have to face him before we get the deliverance.  We are asking God, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done…” in this earth, Lord God, “…as it is in heaven.”  We are going to have to face the beast before we get that deliverance!

Now what are we talking about?  We are talking about “666”—the fullness of man—all that man can be.  This will be the greatest man that ever walked the face of the earth.  This will be the man that is scientifically wise.  That is, he will be physically, mentally, and psychologically wise; powerful, and strong.  This man that is being created is the man who will have the fullness of all that man can be.  This is the man we face. 

We are facing this man in the people and in the very minds of the children.  The government now is fighting for the minds of the children.  If they can, they are going to make laws to get your children.  Home schooling is a bother to the government and to the plans of the One World Government.  Soon there will be no home schooling.  Soon they will take your children from you and teach them what they must know and your children will have such scientific knowledge that they will be so high above you that you will not be even able to cope with what they teach them.  Look at what the kids can do with computers.  When you were kids, you did not know anything about that, but the thing is coming to a head.  Therefore, God told me some secrets concerning the man He wants us to be, in order to be able to combat the “man of sin” (Ref. II Thessalonians 2:3-4) and to combat everything that is coming forth in the world to overtake and overcome us. 

They do not believe they are going to be overcome by us.  They believe they are going to overcome us!  We, therefore, must know that we were born to be the dwelling place of God!  We were born to be the home of the Spirit of God.  We must know that no man can cope with a man who is filled with the Spirit.  A man who is filled with the Spirit is absolutely not even man.  He is beyond man!  He will perceive what man cannot perceive.  He will rise to any occasion. 

We think of Daniel.  They were going to kill him, because the order went out to kill all the wise men (the magicians and soothsayers) and they had classified Daniel among these.  They said, “Kill them!”  The man who was to kill him came to him to tell him what his fate was.  Daniel said, “Tell the king not to be so hasty, but to give me a little time.”  Daniel believed in his God.  I want you to hear what Daniel said.  He said, “Give me a little time and I will tell him what his dream was.”  Daniel had no doubt that his God was going to tell him so he went down into prayer and fasting and God came to him in the night and told him and He showed him the dream of Nebuchadnezzar.  Daniel was immediately exalted above humans.  He was exalted above the scientists.  He was exalted above the great soothsayers.

Did I talk about different guns?  Different weapons of warfare?  Different men who handle different weapons?  If tanks are coming against you, do you grab your rifle and shoot the tanks?  No!  You had better get out of the way and get something heavier.  You had better get somebody who handles a heavier thing like a bazooka or something similar to it in order to hit those tanks.  You do not stand up and shoot a tank with your little gun.  This is the reason why God is telling us now the secrets of how to get our guns to be bigger and how to fight the warfare that He is preparing for us. 

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, January 1997, pg. 4-6)

Thought for today: We cannot fight our enemy in these last days with the small weapons we have been using so far. Let us go before God and have Him increase the power of our guns so that we will overcome the enemy and not be overcome by him.

Scripture reading: Revelation 12:7-11). 

In every type of warfare, in order to be effective and to win, one must know the enemy.  There are two basic tricks that Satan plays on humanity:

1.  He appeals to the carnal mind to deny his existence and hides his work to convince the carnal mind that it is just natural and sometimes coincidental.  He did it to Eve, and tried it with Jesus. 

2.  He intimidates some, convincing them of the greatness of his prowess.

The time has come as never before in the history of mankind for the saints to fight and to overcome the devil.  In the heat of the battle, when one is oppressed with all manner of circumstances and what seems to be coincidences, one is apt to think, “Why me?”  When, however, we understand the nature of the battle, we will rejoice at the wonderful implications which it portends. 

The first glorious implication that we will deal with in the passage of scripture from Revelation 12 is that portion where it is written, “…neither was their place found any more in heaven.”  If we rightly assume that the word “heaven” in this rendition is speaking of the kingdom of God and that this dimension of the kingdom is referring to the kingdom within us (Ref. Luke 17:21), then this verse would be saying that Satan and his angels had a place in us, but that at some time in the history of the Church they will lose that place.  If then, time is so far spent that we are at the end of the sixth day and within a few short years the seventh day or seventh millennium must dawn, then it is now time for us to be totally delivered from every evil spirit of darkness. 

In order to achieve this, there must be a travail (Revelation 12:2).  The travail of the Church is the war that we are experiencing at this time.  The only pattern that this attack has is that it is satanic.  The war has no boundaries, nor venue.  The enemy is using every element, every devil, and every person who can be used against us.  The war is total.  Every weakness, which in time past was permitted to lodge within us and had a place in us, is being exploited and there is no place to hide.  The families are under attack as never before.  The children are under attack as never before.  The husbands who could hide their weakness behind the skirts of their wives are being exposed and the wives who were hiding behind the masculinity of their husbands are being exposed.  Our only hiding place now is in Christ. 

Sin has lost its hiding place in us.  Only true repentance will set us free from imbibed or besetting sin, for now is the time when the fullness of salvation shall come to us.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, December 1991, pg. 1-2)

Thought for today: Let us fall before the Lord and repent before Him from every sin which doth so easily beset us so that we may find our hiding place in Christ.
