Isaiah 64:4
 
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard,
nor perceived by the ear,
neither hath the eye seen,
O God, beside thee,
what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Introduction
 

In the last prophetic visitation, the Church Age climaxed with the world being judged at the end of the tribulation period. Wow! What a judgment! We saw in part what the outcome will be if things do not turn around in America. We have deduced that because the United States is God's 'client nation'1 to preserve freedom to propagate a pure gospel of Jesus Christ, she is the hinge upon which the postdiluvian age swings. We have also noted that the United States of America is God's creation, which He has supernaturally protected over the years to perform the prophetic mandate of His beloved Philadelphian church. Jesus said, "I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it…" [Revelation 3:7]. God of course is excepted. This verse and the one preceding it point out that God Himself opened the door at the proper time for the Philadelphians, and therefore, men cannot frustrate it. Can anyone take anything out of God's hands? Given that the USA embodies the Philadelphian church 2, the implication is that God raised up America for Himself with a special destiny to fulfill. People may try to thwart God's plans for the USA, but they will fail because God is the keeper of the keys. Consequently, America's destiny is in the hands of God and not terrorists.

 
Revelation 3:7-8
 

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. KJV 3

From the above we see that God authorized the 'open door' policy for freedom of gospel hearing throughout the world. The United States' Monroe Doctrine of 1821 assured that this door would remain open 4 - until God Himself shuts it. Always and ever, God is in control of the destinies of men, mice, and monarchs. All that people can do is fulfill His will.

 
Revelation 17:17
 

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

So we see that even the Antichrist Kingdom is the consequence of "all things working together for good" [Romans 8:28] or for bad - for good to those that love Him and for bad to those that deny or betray Him. Having observed how things work together for bad in the vision Earth Shattering, let us now look at the opposition and see what is in store for those that love Him.

 
The End Time Harvest
 
 

Everywhere one goes there is talk about a huge endtime harvest of souls. Truly there has to be one, because the Bible clearly implies there is an analogy between what happens in the natural to what happens in the spiritual. The largest harvest is typically at the end of an agricultural growing cycle. So too shall there be a huge spiritual harvest of souls at the end of the age. At the close of the visitation, Jesus confirmed as much in the prophecy when He said, "I have decreed a moment of peace for the greatest harvest the earth has ever seen." We have been witnessing that harvest the last few decades. However, He also said during His earth walk that the fields were white unto harvest even at that time [John 4:35]. In other words, do not wait until the harvest time at the end of the season to reap because crops are planted at various times and harvested in their due season. Harvesting goes on all during the growing cycle. In fact, delay is a prime reason many believers will miss the rapture [Matthew 24:48-51]. Astonishingly, four times Matthew reports that those who experience weeping and gnashing of teeth in outer darkness are God's servants who got off track and missed God [8:12; 22:13; 24:51; 25:30]. They will forever remember that they were so close to becoming a bride, but shunned the signs of urgency to reap the harvest and to forget about building barns. Church building programs have allowed the harvest to rot in the fields. It is reported that the church in America spends 99% of her wealth on herself. That's a travesty! We must all get busy because the fields are ripe unto harvest. Some go, and some pay the way. The Lord Himself casts the lot into the lap.

In these last days, volumes have been spoken about revival being just over the horizon. It is apparent to me, however, from looking at global missions that the massive endtime harvest has been reaping for several decades. In my opinion, anyone expecting it in the future is backing up. Argentina, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Costa Rica, and many other places in the western hemisphere have already seen tens of thousands of people come to Jesus at revivals taking place in huge stadiums. Mega churches have resulted from the reaping. The same has occurred in Europe, Asia, and Africa as well as many of the isles of the seas. And, where mega churches have not been allowed thousands of cell groups and underground home churches have arisen. Yet, with all of this reviving going on, nations are growing still more hardened and wayward to the Lord's appeals to righteousness. Note Argentina for example. In the wake of a huge revival spanning the last decade, in the last few weeks as a result of five years of economic deflation, there have been extensive riots in the streets, buildings burned, and lives destroyed because the apocalypse 'rider on the black horse' has brought a lack of food to the masses but plenty to those in power. In the midst of sweeping many souls into the Kingdom of Heaven, the clouds are getting even more dark. In the vision, did we not see Jesus' mighty forearm part the black clouds for us to see the brightly lit stars popping up underneath them?

We are at a critical point in time. Others beside me believe that we are in the last move of God, the final stretch of the race to the finish line of the postdiluvian civilization ruled by men and not God. Revival means to make alive - to revive either spiritually dead people or temporally dead Christians. This last move of the Lord, I believe, is to revive a backslidden church, if possible, so that lukewarm Christians will not wind up missing God or missing heaven altogether. Was not Jesus knocking on the door of the Laodicean church trying to get His people to get out of her [Revelation 3:20]? Is not this a clear indication that He loves His church and does not want to see any of His blood bought brothers destroyed by the fires of judgment? Listen to God's pleading through the Scripture: "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" [Revelation 18:4]. How much more warning do people need? God has graciously sent many prophetic admonitions to White Stones Ministries. All of them confirm Scripture and Scripture confirms them. Hopefully, they will get the attention of a few.

This is the moment in time Jesus spoke about in the vision, a moment of peace in which the Holy Spirit is developing the choicest fruit among Christians to become Jesus' bridal company. As with any harvest, not all of the fruit is good. Jesus said a bad tree could not produce good fruit. As a tree is known by its fruit, so the church is known by its conversation and its manner of life, by what it says and its behavioral lifestyle. Jesus said, "…except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" [Luke 13:3,5]. Many people in the church have turned to God only for fire insurance from the scourge of hellfire without any intent to change. They like their lifestyle and just want to add Jesus to their current social values and attitudes. Others were brought to conviction and never repented. Even though not anticonventional, they have never been shown that true conviction leading to salvation brings about a reassessment and change in behavioral practices as a social agent and consumer in an idolatrous world. They unfortunately left the altar without ever having been born anew. This is the consequence of user-friendly churches and having altar calls at worldly events such as concerts and circuses. Some bad fruit has been exposed while some is still hidden. Discourse on the causes for redactions in the church world (people whose names are blotted out of the Book of Life) would not aid the interpretation of this vision. It has been touched upon, in part, in other interpretations. For now, the two 'Jekyll and Hyde' visions in this tripartite booklet Climax of the Ages disclose the effect of good fruit and bad fruit. They show the outcome of people's choices.

It is almost midnight and time to tend the tree in order to make the fruit good. We must trim our lamps in readiness for our Lord's return. Being the last move of God, revival at this stage of the age is for warning both old-time Pentecostals and newly harvested believers to reassess, to clean up their act or miss the rapture. Jesus is coming for His bride, and the messages on this website emphasize this fact. Moreover, they highlight the Biblical teaching that He is coming for those who are eagerly waiting and watching for His return.
The Midnight Oil
 
Luke 12:37-40
 

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. (These are covenant words. Dining with another is symbolic of sharing soul space, i.e., bonding as soul mates. Further, in covenants each party has agreed to serve the other as agreed to in the covenant contract. In the case of a heavenly marriage, the believer queen yields to her King's superior knowledge and power and the King promises to provide for the queen's prosperity, protection, and peace of mind - her every need.)
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

In the above passage, we see how the bride behaves until the groom comes. She stays alert at all times while waiting, in order not to miss her Lord's appearance. Isaiah 64:4 in the opening quote of this interpretation tells us we will not be disappointed when the marriage is finally consummated, for God has incredible and unfathomable things in store for His future daughter. The people who are waiting and watching are the ones who have wholly consecrated themselves to serving Jesus and not themselves or mammon. They have no love for this world and have separated even from things that are considered legitimate for Christians to do. Extremism is the upward battle cry. Luke intimates in the above passage that whoever watches closely his lifestyle while waiting for his Lord is blessed, and indeed Jesus, confirms it in His Revelation to John: "Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments lest he walk naked, and they see his shame" [16:15]. Blessedness, then, hinges on a constant watchfulness and strictest readiness by guarding from possible loss one's garments. Nakedness and shame are the outcome of neglect to sever one's proximity to the polluting abominations of the world. These are Jesus' words, not mine.

Some Bible scholars believe that there are several deportations by rapture during the seven-year tribulation period. Space does not permit exploration of this concept. Suffice it to say that in the Earth Shattering vision, after the others were taken off the earth in a final deportation by the Lord [Revelation 15:2-4], the people left behind were found stripped of not only their clothing, but also their skin! This is in fulfillment of Zechariah's prophecy:

 
Zechariah 14:12
 

12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. (Jeannette has told me that word pictures cannot convey the awful anguish she saw of misguided people who unwisely choose the wrong way to heaven.)

Because chapter 16 of Revelation begins detailing the bowl judgments, and because verses 2-4 of the preceding chapter 15 describe the host of martyrs who "had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass…(singing) the song of Moses, and …of the Lamb", there is indication that there are several deportations of believers to heaven during the tribulation. The one in the vision Earth Shattering refers to the last one in chapter 15. Do you suppose that the several deportations of raptured believers to heaven during the tribulation is what is meant by Jesus' statement, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened" [Matthew 24:22]? In other words, God extends His mercy toward His chosen believers by shortening their days upon earth through rapture to heaven because things are so bad. It could be, as another possibility, that an asteroid hits earth in the direction of her spin, accelerating it so that it shortens the time earth spins on her axis, hence, shortening the number of daylight and nighttime hours. Whether it means an abridgement of time per se or a rapture deportation, the time of experiencing tribulation is shortened. We know from Scripture that the world will be in an awful turmoil and people will desire to die rather than live. Whatever the case, Jeannette saw grotesque scenes of people hurting and writhing in pain in the companion vision to this one, and these people represented anyone who does not heed Jesus' instruction to stay unspotted from the world in watchful expectation for His coming.

  Saved and Sanctifed
 

Having met Jesus at His cross on the way to heaven and having made the choice to receive Him by faith as Savior, a person is justified in God's eyes and assured of a place in heaven. This is called by theologians 'justification'. Then comes another cross in the road. The believer who wants to become part of the bridal company must now choose 1) the direction he will take at this crossroad of life, and 2) whether to get up on his cross at this juncture. Will he sanctify himself by dying to self and the world or remain among the flock and follow the crowd? This is called 'sanctification'. Never let justification and sanctification become confused. Justification is for salvation, and sanctification is for the bridehood. For the most part, Christians go to church, many all their lives, and never really hear what the preacher is saying. They hear and do not heed. They are deceived hearers because they do not hearken to the Word [James 1:22]. Never progressing far in the sanctification process, these people are not rapture ready since they never learned to follow Jesus wholly. John F. Kennedy said, "the Old American purposes are still wholly relevant," and I say, the Old Testament law is still wholly relevant as well. To say, "since I'm not under the law but grace, I can do what I please" subverts the sanctification process. It is the 'Laodicean' lie to please self instead of the Father.

The bride of Christ is going to be obedient to every word of God or she will not rule with Christ. In the Old Testament, the prophets repeatedly warned that there was a great show of religion, but no change of heart. It was ritual without reality. This is the indictment of the church today. Idolatry is as big today as it was then. Whatever takes time away from seeking God and His will is an idol. Look around and see if something is more important than preparing to meet the Lord. The appeal of God is to die to self, but the appeal of the world is to self-interests. As long as one is engrossly enamored with one's own pursuits and ambition, then he or she has not died to self and will not be a part of the raptured bride.

Let the reader not think that only Americans make up the Philadelphian congregation. Many, many people outside the USA are included in this church. America only embodies the conceptualization of who these people are and has been purposely ordained by God to do so. Remember that the pure gospel had become hidden under the altars of the Roman Catholic Church, and remained there until the printing press made the Bible available to all. The progression from a dead church symbolized by Sardis in Rome to the refreshing Philadelphian church in America has already been summarily addressed in the Addendum to Climax of the Ages. (the)

Divine Touch of the Lord

 

 
King of Kings

"Batter my heart, three person'd God; for you

As yet but knock, breathe, shine and seek to mend...

Take me to you, imprision me, for I,

Except you enthrall me, never shall be free."

by John Donne

 

Dedication

"The Divine Arm of the Lord" and the heavenly interpretation pages is dedicated to my friends who have inspired me to lift my weary eyes heavenward. The sound of their voices is music of joy that rings true. Forever may the chambers of your hearts resound with His name, Jesus our beloved Savior.

I am speechless and deeply appericate Dr. Lee Y. Martin's knowledge and divine gift of her writings which are expressed with sound biblical truth. Without the Godly direction in her life, WSM would not have the voice so needed in these last days.

I bow my head and wash the feet of the beautiful daugthers of God.

Let it Be-Be Love: jeannette
