Jesus prophesied that the end of the postdiluvian civilization would be the same as the end of the antediluvian one except that the means of cleansing the earth will be by fire and not water. The same common everyday activities will be going on without anyone's awareness that great judgment is about to fall upon them. People will refuse to heed warnings such as are set forth in these endtime messages on this website until it is too late to profit by them. When destruction comes, so Jesus illustrates, there will be no time to think about it to escape. "Now is the accepted time." Another taletelling evidence that Part 2 speaks of the end of the postdiluvian age rather than the end of the Kingdom Age is the account of the humanoid's appearance in the vision. Before the flood, there were giants in the land [Genesis 6:4]. Many scholars agree that they were the offspring of angels cohabiting with human women. It is not profitable to debate that issue here, but for purposes of understanding the appearance of a demon I refer you to Jesus' comment that the period will be as it was in the days before the flood.

There has been much publicity lately regarding man's ability to produce life from a test tube. We shall not remonstrate about moral imperatives. What I would like to suggest is that the humanoid in this vision is not there by accident. There is a good chance that biochemists have actually produced a demon-like creature from top-secret clandestine experiments. We know thatArea 51, which was denied existence for decades, is in truth a highly protected off-limits area in California used for testing top-secret military equipment. Just this past week on television some workers in Area 51 were striking for whatever reason, and were seen holding up signs and placards near the entrance to the area bearing only the name 'Area 51 On Strike' as if to protect their job description.

There are reports of other underground experimental stations existing in other parts of the United States for other purposes. Some of them hint at genetic crossovers. UFO abductions one reads about and sees in movies where strange experimentations occur, may not all be fictitiously produced from the evil imaginations of the men's hearts. God implies that what humans dream up, they can do because He said at the tower of Babel before dispersing them with strange languages, "…now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do" [Genesis 11:6]. Note the human embryo cloned just last month. History bears witness to the fact that far out ideas from the minds of men eventually come to pass. Rocketry and space stations in the comic strips of Flash Gordon in the early 20th century are realities now commonly seen on television. And Jules Verne's way out novels of the 19th century about exploring the depths of the oceans no longer seem farfetched as we observe documentaries about ocean exploration on television stations such as A&E and Discovery. If visualization creates reality as some contend, what portends the future as Hollywood celebrates Harry Potter's shenanigans with witchcraft? Indeed, a great number of movies in the last couple of decades bespeak of the occult with weird themes, dark plots, alien invasions, and terrorist activity. Our future doesn't look too bright!

The Bible makes it clear that demons do exist and they can be communicated with, for Jesus did. God warns, however, that there are dire consequences attached to casually or curiously contacting them. If one is a blood bought child of God, he, or she is protected by Jesus' blood. Evil spirits cannot cross the bloodline of Jesus without permission. Most of the time believers unwittingly give them permission because they do not know that curses are attached to blood covenants. Why do you think Paul cautioned the Corinthians about taking communion not discerning the Lord's body [1 Corinthians 11:29]? Many were weak and sickly among them and many had died because they were taking communion without judging themselves, without cleansing their soul of sin through repentance and confession. [Refrain:] blood covenants are serious business.

Communion is fellowshipping with the Father and Son, therefore a believer must bathe in the water of 1 John 1:9 before partaking of the elements symbolizing our Lord's death. In case the reader is unschooled about the Word, confession of sin and judging oneself are the same thing. Furthermore, Christians must be careful to stay away from places that are known demonic strongholds. Flagrant disregard of God's command opens one up to demonic attack, but diligently keeping the commands of the Bible will shield a person who helps another get delivered from demonic control. Casting out demons is not child's play. It demands strict adherence to the specification of the covenant and that can only be accomplished by putting the Word first place one's life. If you are called to a deliverance ministry, I strongly advise that you become a 'Berean' before embarking on a journey into the dark unknown. Search the Scriptures to make sure you are following Biblical protocol.

Finally, the trumpet judgments in the Book of Revelation clearly state that demons will be unleashed during the tribulation of the world. Their form and activity is not the work of this paper. What we need to understand about their appearance in the vision is that they will manifest as prophesied in the Bible but will not be able to harm God's sealed messengers. Remember that Jeannette spoke to the demon and he had to back off. The Bible does not mention whether new converts to Christ will be fair game. I personally do not want to be around to find out.

The Other Sid Is Where?

When Jeannette arrived on the other side of the bay, the bridge had collapsed into the water with all of its occupants. The dead religions and idolatrous gods symbolized by the vehicles that drowned could not escape the sweeping wrath of God's judgment. The networking infrastructure as denoted by the bridge could not hold together the 'great city' when God has finished gathering His elect. In "one hour" God avenges His holy apostles and prophets by destroying satan's cosmic system known as Babylon [Revelation 18:20], and in short order commerce comes to a halt.

The disappearance of the group of people traveling with Jeannette on the other side of the chasm reflects the fact that they had safely made it to heaven. Only the people who listened to the messenger and took the way of Jesus were traveling on the correct lane of the bridge - the lane that went upward pointing to heaven. All others ended up falling into the abysmal depths of the sea below. On the other side of the holocaust, the empty places Jeannette saw without a trace of land - no city, no dirt, no nothing - points up the fact that God does a thorough job of cleansing the earth of that wicked city of Babylon. Jesus can now set up His millennial Kingdom without a trace of contamination. He can restore it to its original state as a Garden of Eden, and the Second Adam is ready to take dominion over God's creation and rule it like He intended the first Adam to do.

Conclusion
 

God's prophetic Words are going to come to pass. This vision is about what precipitates the great judgment of the tribulation. Men cannot prevent it happening. All they can do is stall its appearance. There is a set time for things to occur because the Feasts of Jehovah attest to it. Even though God is not a man that He should repent [Numbers 23:19], He has told us in Scripture that He will repent or change His mind for the sake of His children or His Word. Often in Scripture, He encourages us to call upon Him and He will answer. This means that we have opportunity to participate in what God does. He has taken into account this factor and programmed into His decrees through foreknowledge the actions of men, their intercedings and the outcomes stemming from them. Therefore, men "ought always to pray" and prevail upon the Lord for His mercy because we do not know the timing.

It is inevitable that judgment will come. Just keeping moving along and everybody will bump into it some day. In the meantime, we are admonished to entreat the Lord for leniency and the staying of His hand in judgment. He tells us in Isaiah to plead with Him so that we are justified in getting the answer we want [43:26]. However, without knowledge of the Word of God, it is impossible for us to plead with good judgment and hence receive good outcomes. Unfortunately, much of what believers seek from God is thrown out of court because our words if not our actions betray us.

God has given us in this vision an indication of what it is that will cause Him to ignore our pleas. Often in Scripture God uses places, countries, cities, trees, or objects as a type referring to something He has in mind. Israel is frequently compared to a fig tree or a vine. Egypt is used as a type of the world in general. The city of Tyre reflects satan's past rule in the spirit realm. If you look at the attributes of one, you will find God's attitude regarding the other. In this vision, God specified that the city in which Jeannette found herself was San Francisco. Having noted all the characteristics comparable to Biblical Babylon, it is inescapable that we have received word about the basis for God's bringing judgment upon the world. Through this vision, He is telling the church, His true remnant, what to expect, and to do, if anything can be done. If you think nothing can be done, then the message is get ready for the end.

The one outstanding feature permeating the whole of the vision is that judgment is coming and it is coming by way of whatever characterizes San Francisco. The Bible tells us that Babylon is judged because of her idolatry and the blasphemies that she heaps upon the Lord, her contemptuousness for the truth, which is in Jesus [Ephesians 4:21], His person, name, and work. She disregards the true God and His commandments and engages in spiritual fornication to such an extent that her cup of iniquity runs over [Revelation 17:4]. Can we determine from this vision what it is that is angering the Lord? I think we have a good idea from the confluence of all the similarities of the one to the other.

They both have an abundance of wealth, and this wealth is the product of networking. Mystery Babylon is said to have fornicated with kings who represent people in control of men's destinies. These people not only can be heads of governments but also ecclesiastical rulers, shepherds, and magisteriums. The Spirit tells me that it is the last group in charge of people's spiritual welfare and destinies that is displeasing the Lord. The heads of states and governments reflect what comes out of pulpits. It always and ever is that way because the material world is a shadow of the spiritual world. If the heads of state are corrupt, it is because the shepherds are corrupt. They are not preaching truth and are not practicing what they preach. Instead of crying out and sparing not, instead of blowing the trumpet to get people's attention in order to show the people their transgressions and sins [Isaiah 58:1], ecclesiastics and pastors and even evangelists soft peddle sin, fearful that they will offend their congregants. Monetary income and church growth is dependent upon not raising the ire of the flock. Therefore, the wealth of the Laodicean church is on the line.

Furthermore, the Spirit has shown us through this vision that the ambiance of networking is a critical factor bringing on the climax of the ages. These two factors of wealth and networking are the most outstanding features of the vision. They work together to establish the Antichrist's kingdom as well as stir up the indignation of God. The list is endless naming the various councils and organizations joining hands to affect the goodwill of men and promote peace and prosperity. No harm is done if one does not have to compromise truth, but herein lays the problem. The net being spun cannot fully function if there is opposition to the whole. Christianity cannot sustain its purity in networking because the gospel excludes other ways to get to heaven. Remember the traffic jam consisting of sundry faiths moving opposite to the lane carrying the Jesus van? No other vehicles were going Jeannette's way nor did they want to follow her call. Christianity is unquestionably exclusive.

It cannot be emphasized enough that judgment is close at hand. Our messages have repeatedly warned that Christians must "redeem…the time for the days are evil" [Ephesians 5:16]. The total devastation of the World Trade Center was a critical blow to the church. She has been oblivious to the outcries against a world Parliament of Religions. Indeed, the Pope has been instrumental in establishing it throughout the world. His many trips to countries in both hemispheres of earth have given him a solid foothold as the leader of this movement. In fact, the place where consolidation of all religious faiths into a one-world religion was first revealed as a bona fide offer agreed to by Christianity was the church of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy in the mid 80s. I am convinced that because this is the location where unity among religions was introduced in an organized manner, it is a major reason God chose San Francisco and even named her in the vision to reveal the underlying cause for His judging earth. Shortly after the Pope pulled together the various and sundry religious beliefs outside of Christianity, in the mid 90s Catholics and Protestants covenanted together in a signed agreement not to proselytize each other's flocks. Slowly but surely the world's religions are coming together under one umbrella. God has been trying to get the attention of her people that this unity in diversity Parliament of Religions is not an option for Christianity. There is only one way to heaven and to keep quiet about it is to collaborate with the devil to damn people to hell.

Ecumenicalism has lulled the church to sleep and the Lord is trying to awaken her. If the shepherds won't "cry aloud" or "blow the trumpet", God will. The disaster of the trading center towers shockingly but accurately, trumpeted God's controversy with the church in America and previewed His final judgment on satan's Babylonian worldwide system of trafficking and trading. Total devastation - if the giant isn't awakened! We do not know the day or the hour of the Day of the Lord, but we know it will come. As we shall see in the next vision The Divine Arm of the Lord, we have been given a 'moment' of peace albeit overlaid with terror, to repent and seek the Lord's mercy in revival. If you are backslidden, I urge you to repent, because God has promised that if we return unto the Lord, He will return unto us [Deuteronomy 30:2; 1 Samuel 7:3; Isaiah 55:7]. If you have never received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can do so now. The page How To Become A Christian on this website can help you.

This vision gives us a snapshot of the great cataclysmic bowl judgments at the end of the tribulation. No place on earth will be safe from some devastation, and fear will grip the hearts of men and women. The sight Jeannette saw of people who refused to turn to the Lord in time were horrendous and grotesque signifying that existence continues even after the destruction of the world. Because they could not die, they kept cursing God. The reason the vision ended abruptly is to emphasize that death is not a state of non-existence or sleep, but a place where occupants live forever in the state in which their physical bodies die in this world. Don't take my word for all of this. Check it out in Scripture to determine for yourself whether or not the visionary saw an accurate picture of the climax of the ages. This vision is placed in apposition to the one following because they each one demonstrate the outcome of one's choice to follow Jesus or not. In Earth Shattering, we have a picture of how one ends up without Jesus as Lord. In the next vision, the Divine Arm of the Lord, we have a picture of the tremendous honor bestowed upon anyone making Jesus his or her Lord and King. Compare them and see which choice is the best. Listen to the covenant words below set forth by our maker as He declares the two options people have in choosing a lord for their lives. It is not a multiple-choice option nor will self-actualization get you through the gates - remember the wedding garment. God is declaring that one is either for Him or against Him.

  Deuteronomy 30:15-19
  15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore CHOOSE life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Refrain: covenants are serious business.

Addendum
 

Climax of the Ages

  "God's 'Client Nation': America"

This addendum explains the meaning of the term 'client nation' which has been used for the United States of America in the USA prophecy and referred to subsequently in other interpretations. It was first used in the USA prophecy. Since that one, several other prophetic utterances have linked to God's 'client nation', which is the reason for this explanatory addendum. Many of the visitations Jeannette has had are related to soon coming judgment if people, and America in particular, do not repent. Within these visions and dreams, we find hints as to what is bringing on God's judgment. Is everything dependent upon the Unites States? I believe so because we are God's 'client nation'. As goes the USA, so goes the world. No other country has the power to protect freedom, which power is directly tied to the fact that we are God's 'client nation'.

The Lord showed me while writing the interpretation for the USA prophecy that America is His 'client nation' to get out to the world a pure gospel. Many newly formed nations have been colonized by larger nations that brought a gospel with them when they colonized it. It was either an impure gospel or another gospel other than that of the Bible. Because of the rampant corruption of Christianity during the Middle Ages, in order to preserve the world from premature judgment, God had to clean up the gospel by reforming it, restoring it to its original pure state. With this Reformation came light into a dark world and the Dark Ages ended. Millions of people who protested about the corruption within the Church sacrificed their lives during this period of the Inquisition instead of compromising their covenant oath not to worship idols be they sacraments, persons, relics, or mammon. They chose to stand firm for the faith found only in the Scriptures and the Lord Jesus, especially the first and second of the Ten Commandments.

  Exodus 20:3-6
  Commandment #1:
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Commandment #2:
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. KJV

As a result of the protests about unsound doctrine and the Inquisition horrors, the protesting Protestant Movement ushered in a string of denominations, each one purifying the gospel a little bit more. The protestors, however, had no place to get away from tyrannical governments that insisted its people conform to its religious tenants. We see a classic example of this in the Moslem world today. Even though promoted as a peaceful religion, the Koran does not tolerate nonconformists to its precepts. Freedom to choose whom to serve as lord is anathema to Islamism. Although Christianity preaches exclusivity in the way to God and heaven, it does not permit its adherents to lord it over others who do not believe as it preaches. Its only goal is to preach the Word. Everyone is free to choose whether or not to believe the Word. Christianity counts sacred each person's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of heaven. This is the major difference between the two religions. Catholicism had regressed to the same ideology of intolerance and murdered anyone who rejected its catechism of faith. Hence, God needed a 'client nation' who would do His will in getting out the message that salvation had come to the world through His Son Jesus and was freely given as a gift to anyone who would receive it.

The word 'client' is defined as 'the party for which professional services are rendered', that is, a customer or patron. An attorney provides professional advice to clients about judicial matters. A doctor or psychologist has clients for which they render advice on wellness. The United States of America is God's 'client nation' because she is the country for which God provides His protection and blessings in return for spreading the gospel abroad. He protects as His people go. Since inception, we have been a nation whose God is the Lord.

  Psalms 33:12
 

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Psalms 144:15
15 …yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.

To support that the God of the Bible is our Lord, witness our flag, the emblems of which are taken directly from Biblical dogma. [See the interpertation entitled Climax of the Ages for an explanation of them]. God protected His creation so that the world, temporal and spiritual, would realize that the USA is a special chosen nation raised up to serve the Lord. He, in turn, would serve them by giving them supernatural protection.

The American people are God's clients to whom He gives professional advice through His written Word. We seek His wise counsel through prayer and the study of the Bible. In the Old Testament, Israel was His 'client nation' to disseminate His truth in the Scriptures and protect its transmission for posterity. He created Israel from one man's faith, Abraham, and promoted her to the pinnacle of Solomon's unmatched glory. When Israel dropped the ball at the cross of Jesus, God turned the corner and used a new creation, His church, to spread abroad the word about His great love for His creation. He started with twelve knuckleheads, and one scholar, Paul. God has destined her to become the Queen of Heaven in eternity future, a title satan usurped and corrupted through Babylonian idolatry. The devil counterfeits God's every move because he is a liar and the father of it. There is no truth in him. Therefore, he cannot create.

After the elapse of fifteen hundred years, the Roman Catholic Church also dropped the ball and God had to search for a group to be His 'client nation' again. Our Father has a habit of showing His prowess by starting with small beginnings in order to prove that He has done it and not human initiative and embellishing His work to grandiose proportions. In this regard, God gets all the glory. "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of hosts" [Zechariah 4:6]. For 300 years, God planted Christian seeds in the soil of America, which He incubated from 1492 to 1776, so that at the "set time" He would have a body of people to become His glorious Philadelphian Church, the United States of America birthed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the time of the writing of our Constitution.

 

  The Constitution of the United States is in fact a covenant agreement to serve the Lord. History reveals from the minutes of the meetings that around 90% of the document was based upon the Bible's code of belief. Intentional or otherwise, the people of America had written a covenant agreement with Almighty God. The colonialists had been recently revived in a great revival movement and the majority of people were ready to agree to keep the covenant as written and to allow every citizen of this country freedom of choice in religious matters. Hence, God made for Himself a 'client nation' whom He could serve in blessing them and protection. In turn, His client would promulgate the gospel of Jesus and keep the western hemisphere free from tyranny.
The Constitution of the United States

In effect and in truth, America has been the guardian of the 'open door' God gave to His Philadelphian Church. God has kept His part of the covenant by undergirding her "little strength" with His great power [Revelation 3:8]. For over two hundred years, she has been faithful in spreading abroad a pure gospel, but lately there has been a dangerous policy among Christians not to proselytize people of other faiths or even denominations. Satan is trying to muzzle the truth. Squelching believers' rights to preach that Jesus is the only way to heaven is tantamount to curtailing man's freedom of speech and hence a breach of the covenant. Preaching is not coercion. It merely asks for a decision. At the point of coercion, Christianity ceases to be the gospel of a free gift of salvation and becomes a religion. Because God cannot lie, He will not breach His side of our covenant (or any covenant) unless people betray Him from their side. When that happens, we have the piper to pay, and who can contend with the power of God? Remember the refrain? Covenants are serious business. And blood covenant oaths are irrevocable because betrayal by either side brings the curse of death upon the participant

God has not changed His mind to protect us. Americans have changed their minds and shoved God out of our schools, public assemblies, and even churches. She has gone the way of Cain and has changed her covenant mandates to do her own thing, to join the global community and become like the world. If Christians in America acquiesce to the proposition to stop imploring people to salvation through Jesus, the Philadelphian Church will have completed her mandate and will be ready to pass the baton to the Laodiceans. Jesus had nothing good to say about the Laodiceans and nothing bad to say about the Philadelphians. The Philadelphians at that point will be on the threshold of being raptured out of here in order to be kept from the "hour of temptation" [Revelation 3:10]. If the 'Day of the Awakening Blast' heard on September 11, 2001, does not get the attention of the church to repent and change her ecumenical bent, nothing will. I sense that we are on the verge of something big - either revival or tribulation.

You have just read a treatise regarding one of the covenant options - cursing. Now turn to the vision Divine Arm of the Lord and see God's revelation on the subject of blessing - what He has prepared for them that love Him.
