The Abomination of Desolation
Dearest Ones, The outpouring of the latter rain is increasing in power and scope as you open up your hearts to receive it from heaven through your connection with me. I am pleased to be able to share as much light with you as you are able to receive, understand, and share. Now for the topic of today. It is the abomination of desolation. [Dan. 12:11; Matt. 24:15.] This is a term that is used to describe the work of the devil through the papal power. It means that when the lies and teachings of the Catholic church are accepted and believed, the mind is so diverted from truth that the Sanctuary of the heart is left desolate, and my work of connecting with my people on earth through the ministration in the Holy and Most Holy places is cut off, for the minds of the people are focused upon the false teachings and ministry of the Catholic priests who think they are directing the people to salvation, when in reality they are connecting them with the devil's counterfeit. You see, the devil is not a creator of anything except lies and evil, so he tries to counterfeit what I do in the true Sanctuary in Heaven, and use the symbols and rituals of the Old Testament Sanctuary to connect the minds of the people with himself, because he has observed that the purpose of the symbols in my Sanctuary are to connect people with me. But these counterfeit symbols lead to death instead of life. In Catholic churches there are symbols and relics that depict me as though I am still dead on the cross. There may be statues or pictures of people who are also dead, such as Mary and other supposed saints who are to be revered. Even the wine is fermented, which also symbolizes death, for it is in the process of decomposition. The wafer, which is supposedly transformed by the blessing of the priest into pieces of my body, also has to be dead, because you cannot eat the flesh of a living person's body. Then the rosary is a way of methodically praying and hoping to receive blessings from those who are already dead. Another deception of the evil one is his claim to live in, and have jurisdiction over, the people who have died and supposedly gone to purgatory or hell, a place of everlasting burning, when actually they are also dead. So perhaps this helps you to see more about the master deceiver whose kingdom leads only to eternal death. That is why I have used the words "abomination of desolation" in the Bible to describe this power. Desolation means to destroy, make empty, ruin for further use. This is why the devil will be punished for a thousand years at the end of the world in the place of death that he has caused. Death itself is an abomination to me because I am life and I create and sustain life, and I want nothing to do with death, for it is a stranger to me. But I also have been subjected to the tragic results of sin, not only through the destruction of my created works, but also by becoming subject to death myself in order to finally destroy death and bring back a perfect universe where death will never rise again. In the meantime, I have allowed the great controversy to go on until everyone has had a chance to clearly see the results of the destruction of life and goodness that Satan has caused in rebelling against my government and my laws, and claiming that they are not in the best interest of my created beings, and that he has a better way of life for all. Observe, oh earth - observe, oh universe and dwellers in heavenly places - have I not now given enough time and evidence to prove that the claims of the evil one are false and lead only to literal and eternal death? Even when people are physically alive, their spirits die under the weight of the taskmaster they have chosen. So will you now expect me to extend probation a little longer when I have already decided that sin has reached its zenith and that there is nothing more to be gained, but only lost, by extending probationary time? No, my beloved ones, it would not be love that would extend time at this point in history, it would be weakness on my part, and a lack of love for my people who are suffering around the world, and are crying out to me, "How long, oh Lord, how long before you bring to a close the probationary time given to the devil and his followers?" I will now arise and take back my kingdom of life and love and justice from the usurper. I have my number made up among those who are alive in this generation, and I will not back down on my promise to come and get you and take you home to be with me forever. You cannot comprehend the depth of my love for you, and how much I desire for you to be with me. So now my message to you is this: Get ready, get ready, get ready, for I am coming soon and my reward is with me to give to every man severally as his works shall be. Then preach it to the house tops and let it be known around the world that the harvest of the earth is ripe and I am preparing to put in my sickle and reap. Fear not to give this message, for souls will be lost if you refrain from doing all you can to keep in step with my Spirit's call to the world. Angels are now waiting to speak through your voices, to help get the message out. Thank you for listening to me today. I am not meaning to sound harsh, but I am just letting my beloved ones know the intensity of my desire to come and receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may be also. My message to you today is one of the ardor of a loving husband that wants to come and get his bride. So don't become weary or discouraged or distracted from the goal ahead. I am about to arise and shake terribly the earth [Isa. 2:19] and its inhabitants, but not until I have all my beloved ones safe under the shadow of my wings. Hide yourselves for a little while until the indignation be over past. [Isa. 26:20, 21.] Unfortunately I will come as a thief in the night to most people, even to professed Christians who really don't know me or keep the laws of my covenant of love. But to those who love me and keep my commandments from a heart of love, I am coming with healing in my wings. Look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draws nigh! Lovingly, Jesus.
