“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand:
Repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

Mark 1:15
KJV
 

The first words of Jesus recorded in the book of Mark were those above. In the first fifteen verses, Mark accounts that John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of the King of the Kingdom of God [v.3]; that Jesus was anointed through baptism by John for the work of His ministry on earth [v.9]; that immediately after His anointing, the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tested in order to prove He was able to withstand the assaults of the devil [v.12]; that John the Baptist’s work was over having been imprisoned by Herod [v.14]; and that Jesus then came on the scene to finish the work of God that John had started [v.15].

Matthew records essentially the same things, and both gospel writers report that Jesus’ first words beginning His ministry were Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand [Matthew 4:17]. These words spoke forth Jesus’ mission statement, and subsumed all the following words coming from His mouth during His ministry into one mighty shibboleth – ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand,’ or, ‘The Kingdom of God has arrived’ as one translation puts it.

The meaning is clear. The time is fulfilled meant that the Kingdom of God was available to anyone who chose to enter into it. It was and still is at hand. Similarly, the time is fulfilled today for Jesus to come judge the earth and its people and to cleanse it for a public display of the manifested Kingdom of God. In the first fulfillment, the King of the Kingdom had arrived to undo the works of the devil. In the second fulfillment, which is now, Jesus’ arrival will be to judge the world and claim His ownership of it in manifested glory and power.

Good New Of The Gospel Is At Hand

The word for ‘at hand’ in the Greek is reflexive and its base is akin to a primary verb meaning to bend – as one bends an elbow. This implies that Jesus was reflexively pointing to Himself and indicating people should look upon Him as the authority of the Kingdom of God, its ruler, and King if you please, and hear what He had to say. If they did and believed His words, they could have become free from the devil’s hold upon them because the Kingdom of Heaven had come with power. Many did believe His words and were delivered from oppression.

Without belaboring the finer point that the Kingdom would not actually come forth in manifested power for everyone of its citizens until after Jesus’ payment for sin, let me focus your attention on Jesus’ mission statement, the time for setting up His Kingdom had arrived albeit imperceptibly to the physical senses of man. Indeed, it has been a secret invisible kingdom for two millennia and can only be perceived by those who can see with the eye of faith. It takes faith in what God has said about the Kingdom in order to access its powers and live in its blessings.

  1 Corinthians 2:4 
  4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

Judgment Time Is At Hand

The Kingdom of Heaven has been operating invisibly for approximately two thousand years with many infallible proofs. It is now about ready to materialize with all its majestic glory. We live in an exciting time and are on the cutting edge of this mighty transformation of the Kingdom into manifestation. Citizens of the kingdom have nothing about which to be anxious or fear. The coming judgments of God are true, righteous, and unstoppable because they have been spoken forth from of old throughout the Scriptures and will surely come to pass.

Judgment is a two-sided coin, however. From the side of a believer who knows Jesus as Savior, judgment has already been passed upon him, and he or she stands righteous in our Beloved Jesus. He has nothing to fear that is coming. A truly born-again Christian was judged with Jesus as He hung upon the cross. He took the full brunt of the awful wrath of God upon sin and a believer will never experience it himself. Since He was our substitute, and since we, believers have exchanged coats 1 with Jesus – His righteousness for our sins [2 Corinthians 5:21] – we are in right standing with God and through Him have been declared righteous by a holy God. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus [Romans 8:1]

 
Paint My Life with Love
is the only commandment of the New Testament because as it obtains, it integrates respect for the law with mercy and discharges infidelity regarding the commandments of the Old Testament.
 

Hence, if we walk in love, we can dwell safely without fear in the secret place of the Most High God [Psalms 91:1] and be protected from the judgments coming upon the world.

On the other side of the coin, an unbeliever is already under the wrath of God. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him [John 3:36]. Unbelievers will pass through the awful judgments of God as He purges the world of sin. 2

We know from Scripture that the earth will experience a Sabbath millennium, a thousand years of rest and peace when there will be no war. Therefore, we can discount the notion of an end of the world. What we can expect is a progressively worsening short season before the seventh millennium of earth time begins, during which season things and circumstances become extremely difficult, insomuch that Jesus said if the days were not shortened, no flesh would survive [Matthew 24:22]. How can we deny what our Lord has prophesied?

   
 

Mission Statement of White Stones Ministries

The last vision entitled Top of the World has constrained Jeannette and me to issue this mission statement for White Stones Ministries. We are doing so in keeping with our Lord’s pattern as He declared His mission. Jesus fulfilled His assignment, and we are endeavoring to complete ours as well. This latest vision, along with that of the previous one, ‘Court’, has stirred up our spirits. God’s patience has run the gauntlet, and we feel the nearness of God’s readiness to move.

‘Top of the World’ disclosed that the world is in the process of being dismantled by God Himself. In the vision, we see God’s arm up in the air as depicted by Jeannette with hammer in hand ready to strike the third and final blow that brings the earth ruler to his knees. In addition, the previous vision, ‘Court’, revealed that no one on earth would escape experiencing in some degree this final earth shattering judgment of God. Yet, there is a way to escape the awful judgment to come.

 
With A Shout by  jlvetter copyright 2004
 
 
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
  16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
  17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
  18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
 

The rapture is prophesied in the foregoing passage. The word for ‘caught up’ in the Latin Vulgate Bible is from the Latin ‘rapere’ meaning to seize. This is where we get the term. The thrust of its meaning lies in being seized violently rather than sensing a floating out into space in a state of lofty emotion. Remember how the angels had to violently grab Lot and his family by the hands and drag them out of the city in order to miss its destruction. That is more in keeping with how believers will be raptured. We will be snatched away violently from impending disaster and will escape the coming judgments. There will not be any opportunity to get ready then. Remember the five virgins who did not prepare themselves well enough for the bridegroom’s return? When the wake up call came, they simply were not ready and they missed the wedding.

Furthermore, Paul continues to explain that …God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ [1 Thessalonians 5:9]. This statement that believers are not appointed to wrath confirms the Thessalonians passage above and indicates that we will miss the awful judgment of God on this world because we obtain deliverance from them by our Lord – if He indeed is your Lord. Paul also states that we are to be comforted by these words [v.18]. Are you comforted? Are you ready? Comfort comes by knowing you are in Christ and protected.

The visions and their interpretations on this website have progressively become more intense and world oriented rather than body of Christ leaning as many of them have been. For this reason, we believe that God is about to move in a visible way for the entire world to see. We here at White Stones Ministries took September 11, 2001 as God’s wake up call to people to prepare to meet God. Indeed, the vision entitled ‘The Kiss’ that came on the day of the Trade Center demise and the one the day following entitled ‘The Dragon’, clearly show that the incident at the WTC was a wake up call. We so declared it in the visions’ interpretations.

In our minds, there could be no mistake as to the meaning of the Twin Towers fall in New York City. The entire world saw the disaster in broad daylight on television and sparked the War on Terrorism. It became the sign that God’s judgments have begun. The wake-up call was on record. Any incidents or unusual events thereafter are merely additional signs and further indications that Jesus is about to descend to snatch His bride away from the terrible coming judgments.

Jeannette received this latest vision Top of the World in March of 2004, but its interpretation was not thoroughly disclosed to me until the summer of 2004. God delays interpretations for purposes known only to Him until they are revealed. It has been our experience that the reasons generally follow world events. In this case, I believe it was because the vision is so acutely accurate and terrifying to earth dwellers, God wanted it to confirm other signs happening in the world.

This vision is an announcement to the Jews, the Gentiles, and the body of Christ [1 Corinthians 10:32] that God’s imminent judgmental intervention in world affairs has begun and we will be seeing an escalation in Old Testament prophetic fulfillment. We see in the vision that God’s tolerance regarding sin has reached its limits. Earth’s cup overflows with violence, terrorism, and tyranny, and the Creator is ready to permit the world’s social structures to self-destruct.

God does not perform the actual scourging of the earth until the very end of the tribulational period. His wrath is so explosive that He withholds it until the final seven bowl judgments as per Revelation chapters 15 and 16. All God has to do to rebuke through judgment is to remove His hedge of protection. Unfortunately, most people do not appreciate that God, being a good God, does not ever want to punish. Punishment comes because of man’s refusal to run to God for forgiveness, safety, and protection. His wrath comes as a result of persons having rejected His love. He is ever merciful, gracious, longsuffering, and forgiving.

Therefore, it is man’s obstinacy and rebellion that incurs the antipode of God’s love, his wrath, and it is only by default. His church is the protective covering that has shielded this world from the full wrath of a holy God who hates sin and indeed as history so attests separates Himself from it. When God removes the hedge at judgment time, the full weight of sin will spew forth in all of its wickedness and there will be no place on earth safe from demonic powers and their control. At that time, many will turn to God crying out for mercy.. …(W)hen thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness [Isaiah 26:9].

Now is the time to make the decision not to participate in the kingdom of darkness any longer. If you are not in the body of Christ, wouldn’t you like to escape the judgments coming upon the earth? And, if you are a backslider, wouldn’t it be comforting to make sure you are prepared for what is coming? There is a sinner’s prayer at the end of the page on this website entitled ‘How to Become a Christian.’ Say this prayer out loud to God and assure yourself of a place at the table of God in heaven.

 

As the Bible has prophesied, the kingdom of darkness will become darker, but the kingdom of light will become brighter and brighter. Jesus said His people are lights in the world. One day very soon, God’s points of lights to use an adversarial term, will become so bright that they will overcome the darkness. They will become so supercharged that they will be translated by Holy Spirit energy into manifested lights of the real Kingdom of God in the spirit world. Our blood will be changed into a measure of God’s glory that will pulsate through our bodies instead of blood. Sadly, without the bright lights of believers in the physical world, many left behind will be duped into thinking that the impostor Antichrist is the anointed one that religions are looking for. This can cost a person everlasting life.

Nevertheless, there will be a great harvest of souls during this end time shaking – some souls will be harvested prior to the rapture such as is going on right now around the globe, and others will be harvested at the end of the tribulation. God has so declared it.

Revelation 14:14-20

14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap:
for
the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Into the Earth by jlvetter copyright 2004
 

17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And
the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

 

In the above passage, we see a harvesting of persons left on earth who missed the rapture and must go through the great tribulation. Note that there is a two-fold judgment as has been explained. God judges saved believers as worthy of being harvested into His barn in heaven (some Bible teachers take this as a tribulational rapture at its midpoint or end), and unsaved people will be thrust into the great winepress of the wrath of God. I quote the passage to show that there is a division or separation in judgment. All judgment is not disciplinary. Some judgment is for rewards in heeding God’s Word.

ALL the dreams, visions, and prophetic visitations disclosed on this website affirm the fact that Jesus is on the threshold of the door, and we have so declared it throughout the interpretations of them all. For seven years we have faithfully blown the trumpet for our Lord even though we would much rather have preferred to speak smooth things that make people ‘feel’ good as many prophets and teachers do. We do not begrudge them of their pleasantries because God is the arbiter of whom He wants to do what. We only concentrate on being faithful in the assignment He has given to us, for we do not want to miss out on hearing that “well done…” We leave it to the reader to determine whether the prophetic visitations and their interpretations align with the Word of God. Our mission is to make sure that people hear the sound of the trumpet and to forewarn them to get ready and stay prepared for the rapture event.

In this regard, may I suggest that you look at the vision ‘Angel, Angel’, which is only a page long with its interpretation. It dramatically shows forth our mission here at White Stones Ministries. Our statement regarding our mission is and always has been akin to that of Jesus. His mission to earth is wrapped up in the statement: “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Our mission can be encapsulated in the statement: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven’s manifestation is at hand.”

We love you as God has commanded us to do and suggest that backsliders, unbelievers, and lukewarm Christians not waste any time. Get prepared now for the second coming of Jesus and stay ready for an imminent departure.

Exchanging coats between persons is a covenant rite and is extremely important in a person’s exchanging kingdoms – the transferring from the kingdom of darkness into that of light. For a more in depth explanation of what is involved, see the interpretation to the vision entitled ‘Earth Shattering’, the 2nd page continuing. There is an explanation of what the red thread sewn in our American flag means as it relates to Covenant making. (with)
