What is that SWOOSHING sound?

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

That “Swooshing” sound that you hear is the sound that is made as the enemy comes in and fills the vacuum that is left by Christians who have abdicated their society and culture, as well as the marketplaces of their communities.

Even nature will not long tolerate a vacuum, and certainly it is no different in the spiritual realm either.

When Jesus came over 2000 years ago, and announced to the then Roman dominated world of that time, that the Kingdom of God was at hand, the Jews of that day knew exactly what that meant; as did also the Roman citizens of that era.

You see in the then Roman dominated world, that existed then, whenever the Roman army would conquer a new area or region, they would afterwards seen in messengers, who would announce to the people of these newly conquered lands, what they called the “Good News;” and that good news was that there was a new king coming to town, and lawlessness and anarchy was coming to an end!

So when Jesus announced to the world that the “Good News” (the Gospel) of the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand, of course the Jewish citizens understood that to mean that the long awaited Messiah was about to restore the Throne of David; and thereby restore sovereignty once again to the nation of Israel… something for which they had longed for, and that had been lost 500 years earlier, ever since Israel had been conquered by King Nebuchadnezzar, and the Babylonian Empire.

Ever since that time, and for that matter even until our present time, that had not changed, as Israel has always been dominated by foreign nations and rulers, and that’s also just as the Bible had prophesied would happen, when it said that “The land of Israel would be trodden down by the gentiles“… and that condition did not change until May 14th, 1948, when for the first time the Independent Nation of Israel was reborn.

What a miracle that this should happen in our day, after all these thousands of years, after the descendants of Abraham have been dispersed around the world!

That in itself is a total miracle, and that miracle continues to grow and blossom in that desert, even today… once again, just as it was prophesied would happen in the Bible.

What we see happening in the Western cultures today, of Western Europe, is a definite shift in power, and this is especially true in Great Britain, and in France, but I am sad to say that it is also true, and is happening today in the United States as well.

All of these nations were once predominately Christian, but today it can be said that they are in a post Christian era; and as I said, this is also happening in the United States.

How has this happened, you might be asking?

Well it has happened as Christians in all of these countries, have over the years, taken a back seat in their culture, and have abdicated and have given over the positions of power, within their respective governments, and also in the marketplace, to the unbelievers, to the atheists and the agnostics of their societies; and the inevitable has happened, as a result, in that the forces of evil, the demonic forces of Satan, have swooshed in to fill the vacuum!

This was NEVER God’s will, and nor was it God’s plan, that this should happen.

Jesus after all did not come and offer His life, so that Christians could meet together and have church once a week on Sundays… folks that was never God’s plan!

What happened in the first century church is that these men and women turned the then world of their time upside down, as the Good News, The Gospel of the Kingdom of God was not only preached, but it was manifested through miraculous signs and wonders.

Somewhere down the road, as Christian denominations began to organize, and as man started to take over, where once the Church had been lead and directed by the Holy Spirit, this is what has happened… the once powerful church has lost both its power and its influence in the culture!

Listen to this video, and I think it will explain what has happened, and how we, the Church, can regain what we have lost:


Now let me also say here, least some of you lose heart, and wonder if it’s already too late… the answer is a resounding NO!

One way or another, Christ is going to build His Church, and the gates of hell SHALL NOT prevail against her!

This pattern that we can see happening, of this wishy-washy tendency of man, can be seen all throughout history, and it is even recorded in the Bible.

Alexander Tyler also recorded this tendency, back in 18th century, where he noted that the average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has always been about 200 years.

Where these nations have progressed through the following sequence of events: “From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependence; and from dependency back again into bondage.”

Folks, is it just me, or can you not also see the handwriting on the wall, that we are today in the “Dependency” stage, as an already bankrupt government is offering once again, and is vying to retain its power by offering its citizens gifts from the already bankrupt public treasury.

Well it is happening again, as the citizens of our communities, who are already panicked over the economic chaos that is all around them, and is getting worse by the day, in this inflationary economy; and also, along with that, to make matters even worse, we have the devaluation of our currency, with its buying power getting less and less every day, as well.

So here we are once again, just as Alexander Tyler predicted, where the people of our time, in our country today, are making the mistake, by always voting for those candidates who are promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that our Constitutional Republic is collapsing all around us, over the loose fiscal policy of our government, and their foolish and unbridled spending; and the next inevitable step that will happen, unless something drastic changes our current path, is that we will be taken over, sooner than you think, by a totalitarian dictatorship.

Believe it or not, folks, this is the agenda and plan of the Globalist International Bankers; and we are just falling right into their trap; as it is their intention to bankrupt our economy, in order to weaken us, as a people, to the point, that we will accept their offer to come in and fix our economy, give us new currency, and take care of us… and then, as the Bible prophecies will happen next… then enters the Antichrist, and the mark of the beast, without which the Bible says that no man can buy or sell!

Pray folks, because we are living in that time… and it is an exciting time, and also a very pressurized time to live in.

Those who will survive the coming shaking that is about to shake our world, will be those who have founded their faith on nothing else, but Jesus Christ! Selah

Won’t you come and join the adventure with us?

Shalom,
