Hebrews 10:35-39
"Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul."

I wish to write to the remnant of the remnant; to those few who are scattered one to a city and two to a state in America; to those who have not given up; to those who are still running the race, who have not gone back to the world; back to Babylon the great, the great harlot with her clergy kings who have expertly made merchandise of your souls and who have reduced your spiritual worth to that of your debit card account balance.

The established biblical fact that haunts us is that in most cases, the appearance of prophets heralds a doom like no other. Before they ever say very much, God's people should be trembling, but the opposite happens: they despise the word rather than trembling in response to it. The track record of God's people causes us to rightly conclude that when you see prophets appear among the people of God, it is too late for them. God's people almost never repent, and when they do, they do not endure long in any turning back to God. The appearance of true prophets in the church should have been received as a heraldic cry of doom, yet no place has been found for them. We prophets are like cell phones in a coffee shop with no electrical outlets. No place has been prepared for us. So the prophets have plied their trade in the internet wilderness, where first a remnant formed and then faded away. It could be said that we were defeated before we began, and yet God raised up prophets and sent them, warning His church that it had become Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots. He warned everyone that the warnings of Revelation 18:4-8 were literal. There will and is literally a requirement that where you are attached to a harlot church, you are a partaker of the sins thereof. You must come out of her!

Revelation 18:4-8
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works; in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her; for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her."

Here, God spoke to that harlot; to anyone who had or who has ears to hear, and served notice on her that the double judgements spoken of three times in Revelation 18:6 have been reserved specifically for her. God has been speaking of these things for more than twenty years, and church as a business has continued forward and has even expanded. Most have listened and said within their hearts...."surely he speaks not of MY church". He sent prophets to tell them that those book of Revelation scriptures apply to the here and now and that God's spirit is speaking to this present TBN denomination churches with their clergy king pastors, who have armor bearers to carry their bibles and open their brief cases, wipe sweat from their brows and open their car doors for them. God's spirit also has the board ruled/spirit deficient churches squarely in His sights as well. These churches are filled with people who will be singing three hymns or even four contemporary songs until they are swept away in the flood, clueless and unawares. Much blood will be on the hands of leaders.

There are many reasons why the prophetic remnant of the first decade of the third millennium since the appearing of Christ has fallen away. Now, all that remains is a remnant of a remnant. All has been burned up, including the refuge places. Time has almost run out and no one has stepped forward to act upon the word of God and move out by faith. I cannot do a thing for them. They have returned to their vomit and have lost even that which they had. My concern is with the few who remain. I do not wish to remain silent for too long, lest they go without any encouragement. And so, after falling silent with radio for two weeks, I speak to you here to encourage you, for the wait is long for men and women who find that waiting is the hardest thing to do. God's people do not have a biblical record of "waiting well".

Exodus 32:1
"And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him."

It took Israel less than forty days to play the harlot after Moses had gone up and left them alone. God's people never have been any good at waiting.

Exodus 32:8
"They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, these be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."

We presently see sign after sign that 2012 will be the time for the advent of the double judgements, yet no place has been found within the harlot church for prophecy. Pastors are formed, hundreds and hundreds together in pastor's groups across the land, under the covering of the so called mega-apostles. These will be swept away by the floods as well. Blood will be on their hands. Millions sit unawares of the doom that is to fall upon them, as they expect to see no sorrow and fly away. God has been pointing repeatedly to the commencement of the double judgements most probably by the end of the summer, 2012, yet the falling away continues at an accelerated pace.

The time of my last writing, our prophetic trip to New England, marked the last dotting of "I's" and crossing of "t's" for the decreeing of the double judgements. The valley of vision was very near, and so it seemed as though God was ready to bring those things down upon this nation in a matter or hours or even days. And then God did what He usually does: He waited! The response of God's people is a deafening crescendo as they leave flyover country to return to the cities of this nation. It is taking too long, they tell us. We hate being alone, they tell us. We are bored, they tell us. Oh yes, waiting is so very hard to do, and waiting upon the Lord is even harder to do.

Do you not know that from beginning to end, the bible is chock filled with stories of men and women who had to wait LONG for the Lord to do those things that He had promised. Do I need to repeat these bible stories to remind you of these things? I know you have no patience for LONG anything, so I will give it to you rapid fire:

  • David was anointed at 20, reigned in Hebron at 30 and reigned in Jerusalem at 37. That means it took David 17 years until he reigned over all Israel like the prophet told him would happen. 17 years!
  • Abraham had to wait and wait and wait......well you know the story. Hebrews 11 tells his story and the story of others who waited.
  • Noah had to wait and build 120 years and then, when the ark was completed, no one came! We may repeat the fulfillment of this result in this country, in this generation.
  • Jeremiah had to wait 17 years after he began prophesying before the first judgement event even happened. That first 17 years was filled with unparalleled prosperity and he then had to wait through six separate Babylonian invasions over 23 years before all of his prophecies were fulfilled. He had to wait one time when the Babylonian army laid siege to Jerusalem and then retreated. And, in the end, the remnant was destroyed and only a remnant of a remnant remained. This came upon God's people, not the wicked heathen.

    Whether we are waiting for good things from God or waiting for judgements, the waits are almost always long. The testing of our convictions, our wills and our obedience is very thorough. God will find out what is in your hearts. Talking a good game with men will get you nowhere. This is why I have been telling all of you for years that you cannot make any move based upon any purportedly spiritual information that you determine your course based upon some direction from a man. You have to get a word from God. If you do not, you will never make it through the time of testing when Satan comes to you, as he did to Eve and says, "Yeah, hath God said"? We are in such an incredible time right now, yet the sound of snoring from Christian believers is so loud that I almost cannot hear myself think. Just consider how a few things are lining up right now:

  • Twenty years ago, the prophet Stephen Bening prophesied about the number seventeen, and how it is the number of God's wrath and of escapes from wrath.
  • Today, seventeen nations use the Euro for their currency and it is in a state of imminent collapse, which will certainly domino into a continuation of the 2008 world financial collapse.
  • Twenty years ago, the prophet Stephen Bening prophesied that Turkey would be the "place of tribulation" and instructed all to watch Turkey.
  • June 22, 2012, Turkey had two warplanes attacked by Syria. A NATO meeting has been called for consideration of a response. The 1700 mile river Euphrates begins in Turkey, runs through Syria and Iraq and into the Persian Gulf.

    Can you not see that we are getting closer and closer to calamitous events? The last place in America where we decreed the prophetic double judgements, New England, is now a place where Bears have been sighted on Cape Cod and Great White Sharks have gathered to feed off her coasts. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...................
