Prepare for Battle (Part 1): D-Day

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, in whom there is no distinction between people's, race's, classes or societies, I write to you all from the Church in St. Louis, Missouri. My prayer for the body of Christ itself has been that of protection and cleansing as of late. There is a sickness that I have sensed within the body as a whole, and sickness first comes from without, and manifests itself within. Therefore, the Lord judges from within the Church first, in order to cleanse that which is without, the world, at which the will cleansing will come at the day of judgement. And so my prayer continues the same, yet I see with spiritual eyes that the Lord is moving in a mighty way, preparing His bride for the soon return, in which we will see Him in His full glory, where no darkness can exist or breathe. The breath of glory has been breathed into our nostrils, like the first man, and we are made new. Remember, only the eye that has been made new will see the One who makes all things new. My prayer is that you be made new, and continually washed clean from the dirt of the world. 

I have not been inspired to write for some time, as can be seen by the date of my last post, but the Lord has been revealing much lately to my spirit and I have been urged to finally post. This may be longer than even the previous posts, but by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ it will be a timely message, which will serve to prepare and wake those who are not watching.

There is an incredible advantage that I have, in comparison to the apostles of long ago which they themselves did not have, which is the ability to send a letter to such a large audience of believers by way of the Internet (I refer you to my previous post on that particular subject). Therefore, with this in mind, I take into account that there may be brothers and sisters from all over the world, outside of the United States, that may be reading this message. 

But the first part of this message is directed towards the true body of Christ in the United States:

To the Church in America:

D-Day and H-Hour

It should never leave your mind, brothers and sisters, that we, as a family, are in war together. 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, (Ephesians 6:12, KJV)

This war is against Satan, the prince of darkness, the ruler of the air, who seeks the doubting heart of a Christian, in order to turn him towards his own purposeful gain against the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. Be wary, and be on watch against him, for he is at the door seeking to devour you the first chance he gets.

In this war, there are fronts, just like any war. Some battlefronts are more intense and deadly than others. Take for example the shores of France on D-Day, in comparison to the shores of New Guinea during World War 2. The conditions were both brutal, but the situations themselves were different in comparison to each other. On the shores shores of Normandy, death was imminent and almost expected. 

I tell you now, the United States, in the spiritual sense is Normandy, and D-Day is about to begin. The term D-day, in militaristic form can be taken to mean, "Day of Days". Another term used in the same context was H-Hour, or the "Hour of Hours". This signified the exact day and hour that the military operation was to commence. 

"The armed forces use code names to refer to the planning and execution of specific military operations. Operation Overlord was the codename for the Allied invasion of northwest Europe. The assault phase of Operation Overlord was known as Operation Neptune. Operation Neptune began on D-Day (June 6, 1944) and ended on 30 June 1944. By this time, the Allies had established a firm foothold in Normandy. Operation Overlord also began on D-Day, and continued until Allied forces crossed the River Seine on 19 August 1944." (Wikipedia)

Brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, I say to you in all sincerity, the battle is about to commence. 

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36, KJV)
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. (Luke 21:36, KJV)

Take this to heart though, that the Lord Jesus himself received Revelation concerning the Day and the Hour in the Book of Revelation dictated to John the Disciple. The Day of Days and the Hour of Hours is fast approaching. Yet! many will be found wanting, and will be caught off guard. Take these words from the Spirit of the Lord which was revealed to Paul the apostle, to you and for you,  in this very hour in which we find ourselves living: 

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, KJV)

The allied forces worked together, and used code names to communicate with each other, concerning the day and the hour of the operation. The Holy Bible itself is code. It has a deeper, spiritual meaning to every aspect of it, but it can only be understood with spiritual eyes. The eyes of the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, who is Jesus Christ and the Father, must be put on. The only way to escape the judgment to come, and to be on the right side of the battle, is to allow the life of Christ Jesus to live through you by His Spirit. 

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. (Hebrews 9:24-28, KJV)

The 28th verse of Hebrews chapter 9 is perhaps one of the most important verse concerning believers of the Lord at this last hour. Only by looking and watching will that day not take you as a thief. The allies did not surprise each other when Operation Overlord commenced, rather it was meticulously planned and orchestrated. The Return of our Lord Jesus Christ is an operation, a battle you were meant to fight in, for Him and not against Him.  We ourselves are ambassadors of the Lord as Paul says:

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:20, KJV)

Our battle is therefore not with flesh and blood, but with Fallen Angels and Demons; Devils of darkness and wicked spirits of old. Our message in wartime is towards the flesh and blood of the world, which is an invitation from heaven, to heaven. We invite the world to surrender before it is destroyed! We offer reconciliation from God to the world, that they may be saved, for God loved the world so much He gave His own Son as a sacrifice for it. Oh the wonderful mercies of God, which we represent and pour out upon those who dwell in darkness! The battle rages, but the word from the Lord is this: The Church in America is fading from the battlefield, and is fleeing to another front!

Many of the chosen soldiers of the Lord have gone AWOL, or they have been "absent without leave". The hardest place to actually be a Christian in the world today is America. The United States' society is founded and based on humanism, the belief that the end of all being is the happiness of man. This is the battlefront I have been born into. If you are reading this and are in America, this is the place where you have been chosen to fight. Why do you seek to leave the greatest battle in the Good Fight? 

There was a time and a place for missionary work, to spread the gospel all around the world. I do not lash out at the work of missionaries, but I do say this: The Lord has raised a people up, in every nation of the world today, and has planted seed everywhere there is soil. It is no longer the job of America to go to the foreign land, and spread the gospel. China, India and the like, have raised up phenomenal Christians, and their churches flourishes more than ours even in this land. 

This is one of the main reasons we as Christians in America have wished to flee our own battlefront, because it is easier over there to live the Normal Christian life. Do not misunderstand me. I know the physical hardships that the rest of the world faces, and that is the very point, physical hardships leads to greater spiritual labor. Now remember this, that the Word of God must be looked at with spiritual eyes:

The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. (Proverbs 10:3-4, KJV)

Where there is no physical hardship, spiritual laziness and fornication creeps more easily. Once again, do not misunderstand my words, I am not saying Christians in America should seek to starve (although they should be fasting), or they should seek to be poor (although they should be willing to give everything up), what I am saying is that, spiritually, it is easier for the rest of the world to live out their faith in Christ, than it is for those in the body who are here in America. Why? The Church in America has applied the scripture in Proverbs in the fleshly sense. They work hard physically in their jobs, and therefore they become rich with material gain. But that scripture has nothing to do with physical workings and has everything to do with the spiritual workings of the Holy Spirit through you. Verse 3 is speaking of the soul, not the flesh of the righteous. Therefore, around the world there is a greater spiritual working, because of righteousness in the body of Christ. But here in America, the body is corrupted through wickedness, due to the blending of the Church and American society, which then leads to the Lord taking away His own Spirit and as James says:

 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26, KJV)

The body of Christ in America is fading because of wickedness and unrighteousness. The society and culture we live in promotes and promulgates the hatred of Christ and His ways continuously. Day by day we are tossed images of pornography, violence, atheism and occultism (which all translates into the tactics of Satan) and we do not know how to deal with such attacks from the enemy. So, the Christian who dwells in the land of America seeks a way out of this disparaging culture, and the continual trend is to literally leave the land itself, and go on a "mission trip" or work in the "mission field". This is seen as the remedy to cure the sickness that is killing the body of Christ in simply flee the battlefield! The Lord says this to the fleeing Church in America:

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars. (2 Chronicles 16:9)

You have done foolishly seeking to flee the battlefield, the place where you have been planted to fight the good fight of faith for Christ, which He Himself would have fought for you if you would have had courage enough to stay. Yet, henceforth, the Church in America is going to face the greatest persecution it has ever seen. The time is fast approaching. The Day of Days is near, and so too is the Hour of Hours. America is the like the front of Normandy on D-Day. Which side of the beach are you on? 

The land of America is a den of iniquity, which will be recompensed for every evil deed it has committed. Keep this in your heart: the most skilled soldiers are reserved for the greatest battles. I refer you to King David's mighty men in 2 Samuel 23. They were of valor and devotion to God's King, and they set themselves apart through their gifts and talents they were given by God, to serve the King Himself in all humility and righteousness. They Loved their King, and so too must we Love our King, Jesus Christ!

There are many different tactics and fronts within America itself, and most of the work must be done covertly. But if a revival is to take place here, it must be a full on invasion of the Spirit of God in the land, much like on the shores of Normandy in France. Knowledge, Courage and Strength are required in order to defeat the enemy, and the Spirit of the Lord can be the one only supply you with these necessities. Yet once again, spiritual laziness and moreover, the Love of the world is found within the "Church" today in America. God needs, out of all the places in the world, mighty men to rise up in America! 

O mighty men of Christ in America! Do not flee to the front in which their is a lesser battle, but fight where you have been placed! *Those who died on the beaches of Normandy did not flee to a place like New Guinea, where there was no battle. No. They fought, and faced the certainty of death. The certain death we face is the cross, which itself is life eternally lived. Who is willing to go to the cross IN America? There are many Americans willing to die on the cross with Christ, but not IN the land of America; they seek a way out of the land they were born in, thus they go to the foreign land and spread the gospel there. But what about America?! Will you not live the life of Christ anywhere? Will you not seek the death of the cross in any land? Too many have fled without permission. The Church in America is AWOL. They have not been given leave from the battlefield they were assigned to fight in. The war is not over in America, it is only beginning! The mighty men of America are soon to reveal themselves for the sake of the cross! You are to flee Babylon, yes! But that is spiritually for the Christian today! The command is to flee the system of Babylon, you cannot leave world physically. You must subdue it! You must spread the gospel of the kingdom of God!

The Warning
This is no joking matter, and this is not simply a word of advice, it is a warning. The invasion of the Lord is about to begin, and the rapture of the Bride of Christ is soon to occur.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:25, KJV)

You who dwell in the land of America, I say to you: choose you this day whom you will serve. The god of the Americans, which is Self, or Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. There is no compromise between the two. Serve yourself or serve God. 

The Battle is soon to begin, which side of the flood are you on? Or more succinctly put, which side of the beach are you on? Are you invading the beaches of Normandy, or are you defending it? Take this message as a leaflet which serves as a warning before the bombs are dropped. The destruction is coming, choose the way salvation and grace, which is available to you this day, before the night closes in and the darkness eats you up. The Lord is willing, are you? 

Are you with Christ, or are you with Satan? Choose. 

More to follow soon God willing, unless the ambassadors are called home, and the invasion begins!

Blessings be unto you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! May the Grace of God be found within your hearts continually, and may the message speak to your spirits, and awake those who are sleeping. Amen. 

*(Note: My grandfather was stationed in New Guinea, and the physical conditions were terrible during the war, and the important aspect here is that they were always in a warlike state, ready for battle at the call. But that does not overthrow the fact that a more intense battle was going on in France and Europe at the time. It simply exemplifies the notion that you must flourish where the Lord has placed you.)
