Prophecy Kingdom Warning to Laodicea Part 2
Prophecy in America was not considered much, many people were too busy trying to survive. Grandpa and Grandma were one of these. Our family had to work hard to survive. Then on Sundays off to church we would go.

PART TWO: Prophecy and America, what we have become!
We are living today in a time when Prophecy is fulfilled on a daily basis. Prophecy is revealing herself in the world with America at the forefront and she does not know it. At a time when God is moving and Prophecy has foretold it all we find this nation at a lost to understand it. For all intents and purposes, America today is a bitter woman who looks in the mirror and says “mirror, mirror on the wall, am I not the fairest of them all?” The mirror answers and says “yes you are fair, but not as fair, innocent, and beautiful as you once were?” With this, America the bitter woman of the modern age stomps off. She has lost identity, her Christian roots, and the very moral foundation of a people that knew the God of Eternity and his son Jesus Christ. It is in this where the foundation of Prophecy lies, i.e. in “Jesus Christ”. Yet because we have forsaken the Lord of Glory, Prophecy is hard to grasp, understand correctly, in order to help us.
Prophecy looks ahead to the coming of the Son of God. For many though, events are unfolding that bring chaos and trouble. We don’t want America lost, but in fact; a nation cannot be saved. Her people can find salvation but a nation cannot. A nation is a reflection of who is in her. With that said, we can look at our children today who wander the malls. They dress in ways that make my hippie days look tame. They also wander in black, dressed out in gothic or demonic symbols, and spend time in their fantasy world they have made for themselves. With a phone in one hand, and the other on their girl or boyfriend they walk the malls and the streets. They have been taught that they can have sex anyway they want it. They have been taught there is no reason to read the bible or pray to the God of our Fathers in the name of Jesus Christ. They instead are taught that there are many ways to God. There are no absolutes, that hell doesn’t exist, and God doesn’t care what they do. They drive expensive cars, have expensive computers, designer clothes and shoes, and even the young girls are made up by their mothers to look like harlots at an early age. This is a nation adrift, afloat, in trouble, and one whose rudder has been shirred off.
When our Lord came the first time to die on the cross, he fulfilled Prophecy. It is from the Prophetic writings and those of the bible that we find knowledge of what is to come and how to prepare. Moreover, this reminds me of a parable our Lord told. He had said of a certain King who was having a wedding feast and told his servants to “go out into the highways and hedges and compel as many as you find to come in to the marriage.” The servants obeyed and brought in both “bad and good” and thus the wedding was full. The King came in and mixed among the guests and saw a man who did not have on a wedding garment. The King asked him “Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.” The King then told his servants to “bind him hand and foot, and take him away and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” The moral of this story is “many are called but few are chosen.” So many today want to enter the wedding without the proper garments. They want to enter by a certain denomination, a certain religion, a certain prophet, or even by another God. Although God “commands all men everywhere to repent” and thus come to him, many do not; but still they want to enter the wedding. Many others in churches have not taken up the cross, nor followed their Lord, and in fact have taken the plow in hand and looked back. They are companions with Lots wife who looked back towards Sodom. These love religion, love their church, love their denomination, and love the world. Their hearts are trying to serve two masters and thus the problem arises. There is only room for one Master, one Lord of the heart. The church today and many others in America want to do their own thing, enjoying life and all its pleasures while ignoring the very warnings of the Lord in scripture. How can the people hear, when they refuse to hear? How can they see, when they refuse to see? The Prophecy and its implications say this, “be ready, for this is true.” Prophecy and its clues tell us throughout Revelation that a new kingdom is coming and with it a “Wedding feast.” A Prophecy which is relevant to you today! Don’t you want to become part of this feast and be one in the Lord with the proper garments?
Prophecy Wedding Guests: “how did you come in here not having a wedding garment?”
Mat 22:9- Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
Mat 22:10- So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Mat 22:11- And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Mat 22:12- And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Mat 22:13- Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 22:14- For many are called, but few are chosen.
Speaking of being ready, James gives a Prophecy and a warning that many have read. This Prophecy which James wrote about speaks directly to the rich nations today. Of course, America and her people are at the center of this warning. For many the American dream and its riches are the essence of what made America great. But even with that dream, this nation was blessed. It was blessed by the Lord God. That nation which God blessed has been gone for many years. In its place is a harlot, and that harlot has been serving many lovers. God thus has rejected this nation. There is a call to these people. This call says repent. This call says judgment is coming upon the nation in earnest. Yet, the people neither see nor hear! They only see and hear what they want and what they want are riches. The riches and the men who love them will howl for the miseries to come upon them. For the very thing they love, money, fame, wealth, and all that this encompasses is corrupted. As a result, these are ones who somehow manage to come to the wedding party. But their garments, their wedding garment have now become moth-eaten. It became this way when their love for the Lord turned away. You have lived in pleasure on the earth, been wanton, nourishing your hearts as in the day of slaughter. We have enjoyed blessings and wanted more. We have had money and wanted more. If that was not enough, we want more of everything, then even more. We are not satisfied with a little profit, no we must make even more. We must not just be rich, but very rich. This attitude of never having enough is pervasive throughout our society. We are nation of consumers who never have enough and must buy more. Bigger televisions, better computers, more tech savvy phones, and yet we want more, more, and even more. The Lust of want is never satisfied. I urge you to believe the Word of God. Moreover, understand Prophecy will be fulfilled concerning the Lord and his coming. Heed the warning that those who will be with him in his kingdom will not enter if they are serving sin and all its lusts!
Prophecy Ye rich men: “your riches are corrupted, your garments are motheaten”
Jas 5:1- Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Jas 5:2- Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Jas 5:3- Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Jas 5:4- Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
Jas 5:5- Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Jas 5:6- Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
Yet in all this, Prophecy also speaks and reminds me of the Sardis church. This typifies the church that has a name that she is alive, but in reality she is dead. She has cold, dead religion. All religion can do is make you cold and give you death. It has no green shoots of salvation but only dark and drying roots of a powerless religion. It has not a redeeming value of truth in order to set anyone free in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It cannot set anyone free because there is no more faith, belief, or hope left. They live out their dead existence in a religious cloud of mediocrity and hopelessness. It is a church of what used to be without any hope of who really is. Yet in the midst of this our Lord says “Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy.” Even in this hopelessness, there are those who know the truth, a truth that has set them free and kept them free. This church is warned to “repent and watch” or the Lord will “come on thee as a thief and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” The Prophecy here is a warning, take heed or else!
Prophecy Sardis: “You have a few names which have not defiled their garments”
Rev 3:1- And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Rev 3:2- Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
Rev 3:3- Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Rev 3:4- Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
One of the most prevalent Prophecy sections concerning today’s church is found in Revelation. This Prophecy concerns America and much of the westernized Christian church, in which, we have Laodacia. Although relevant to many nations and people who went before us, this Prophecy is true today more so than ever before. The Prophecy concerning Laodacia is one that has found much favor in the past. She has known the Lord, she has had faith, and she has seen her fruits grow. She in all her works has been fruitful and blessed. This was what she was. She grew; she knew the bible, the doctrines, the way to increase her stature and fame. She knew how to grow her church. She sits confidently atop the world’s finest religions and Christian edifices and says “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.” You see in this picture, the glory has left the church, having been replaced by the fleshly and worldly status of success. It is a church where the Lord is on the outside of the church, knocking to come in. It’s pastors are C.E.O.’s of a religious empire. Its deacons are the stockholders and the congregation is the audience. It is a fleshly, feel good, mixture of modern church growth techniques and tools. It is the arm of the flesh leaving the Spirit of God out. Thus, when you do that; the Glory leaves. The Shekinah has left the bema and all is left is that which man has created.
Furthermore, the church does not see, nor does it hear any more from the Lord. They are “lukewarm” and thus the knocking of her Lord goes unattended and unheeded. He continues knocking, but no one listens. At the very hour of her trial, she will call upon God, but the Lord will answer saying “I will choose your delusions and bring your own fears upon you because when I called you did not answer.” Thus Laodacia becomes chastened and told to repent, as the Lord Counsels her to “buy of me gold tried in the fire.” It would be through persecution and tribulation that those in Laodacia who have some piece of gold remaining which would go through the fire. A fire that would remove the impurities and make again the one to walk in white garments, fit for a wedding. The gold tried, the remnant refined, the wedding attended; thus the Lord tells her that she has “overcome”, just as he overcame. But to many of Laodacia, he will say “because you are neither cold nor hot, I have spewed you out of my mouth.” It was because they did not hear nor take to heart these things, that they were found wanting. Thus this Prophecy speaks a warning, “don’t be spewed out of the mouth of the Lord.”
Prophecy Laodacian: “so that your nakedness does not appear”
Rev 3:14- And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Rev 3:15- I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16- So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17- Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Rev 3:18- I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Rev 3:19- As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Rev 3:20- Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Rev 3:21- To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Rev 3:22- He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
In conclusion, we are told that “blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walks naked and they see his shame.” Today it is time to wake up, repent, and walk circumspectly in the Lord. There are many today walking in a cloud of religious delusion, don’t be partakers with them. Get into Gods word and prepare yourself for what comes. The fire comes and with it a refining.
Prophecy Watch Ye: “Blessed is he that watcheth & keepeth his garments, lest he walks naked”
Rev 16:14- For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Rev 16:15- Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
Rev 16:16- And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Mat 24:42- Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Mat 24:43- But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
Mat 24:44- Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
On a final note, take heed so that you are not so caught up in your life of paying bills, living, taking care of family, and other things, that the day of the Lord comes upon you unexpectedly. There is a snare coming, it is an end time shaking of all things. Many will not survive physically. Also many will not survive spiritually and be able to stand before the Son of Man.
Therefore you are told to “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
Prophecy Take Heed: “so that day does not come upon you unaware”
Luk 21:34- And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
Luk 21:35- For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Luk 21:36- Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
