Florida congresswoman proposes fascist mandatory vaccination law to remove parents' rights

Resultado de imagen para killer vaccin

Another day, another attempt by the progressive Left to impose its will on the entire country.

A U.S. congresswoman from Florida, Frederica S. Wilson, from the state's 24th district, has just introduced legislation, House Resolution 2232, that, if passed and signed into law, would mandate that all states require all students enrolled in public schools to be vaccinated with all vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Policy, a federal entity comprised chiefly of vaccine industry representatives (Big Pharma). The bill calls for children to be vaccinated specifically against HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Paul Offit's rotavirus vaccine, annual flu shots and dozens of others.

As reported by the Autism Action Network, any state that doesn't comply would be held financially hostage to federal funding: No grants for "preventative health services" under the Public Health Services Act (which, in its original form, does not contain provisions requiring that kids be vaccinated or federal funding would be withheld).

Authoritarian Democrat wants to strip parental choice

As the Autism Action Network - which is opposed to the legislation – reported further:

Wilson's bill, if passed, would for the first time establish a federal vaccination requirement to attend school. Current vaccines policies are set by the states, but with the increasing federal control over schools with No Child Left Behind and the Common Core, Wilson's bill maybe an indicator of what is coming.

This bill would also deliver to the vaccine industry two of their primary goals: completely removing any parental involvement in vaccine decisions for our children, and requiring the entire ACIP schedule, which no state currently does.

As in the recently-enacted SB277 in California, the Wilson legislation would remove all objections from parents for religious or secular, philosophical reasons. Medical exceptions would be rare and only allowed via the faceless bureaucracy; a physician would have to submit a letter "demonstrating (to the satisfaction of the individual in charge of the health program at the student's school) that the physician's opinion conforms to the accepted standard of medical care."

That "accepted standard" is, of course, whatever the federal bureaucracy proclaims it to be, much of which will further depend on the political tendencies of the president to which said bureaucracy answers.

What's more, as noted by the Autism Action Network, the approving authority at the child's school most likely would not be a physician, so that part of the Wilson bill most definitely permits the overriding of the physician's judgment by anyone who merely disagrees with the exemption, regardless of the person's credentials and qualifications. They wouldn't even be required to examine the child or see the child's medical records before overriding their doctor.

Another usurpation of state's rights

Wilson is a Democrat in a U.S. House that is currently dominated by a large Republican majority, so there is not much chance her bill will pass. As of this report, it did not have any co-sponsors. But given the trend of mandatory vaccination around the country, you can probably expect similar national legislation in the future, so parents should begin preparing now how best to defend their rights and their own children.

"This would be an unprecedented expansion of the federal government into an area of law and policy long recognized as the preserve of the states," the Autism Action Network reported – very similar to federal intrusion regarding the traditional role of states defining marriage and outlawing abortion. "The bill would allow anyone, without any medical training, to override the medical decision of a physician."

The legislation also ignores the bedrock American principle of informed choice regarding ethical medical procedures, and violates the ethical code of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which requires that vaccines should only be given to children whose parents have provided their informed consent.

Currently, 48 states allow religious exemptions to vaccines, and 19 states – containing more than half of the U.S. population – also allow for secular objections.

North’s new missile might be able to reach U.S.

North Korea is preparing to launch an upgraded missile with a range that can possibly reach the U.S. mainland, a high-ranking South Korean government official told the JoongAng Ilbo, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, on Wednesday.

“The North is working hard to test the rocket engine,” the source said, “in addition to a construction project to extend a launch tower at a missile facility. There was intelligence that Kim Jong-un as National Defense Commission First Chairman ordered the launch of an artificial satellite, so we believe the launch will take place before October.”

North Korea celebrates the foundation of its ruling Workers’ Party on Oct. 10 as an important political event, and this year marks the 70th anniversary, fueling speculation about a series of provocations in October.

In the past, the North has used its space program as an excuse to test long-range missiles.

In December 2012, it announced it had successfully put a satellite into orbit with Unha-3, a three-stage rocket with a range of at least 6,000 kilometers (3,728 miles).

“I am not at liberty to discuss the timing and number of attempts, but the North conducted at least two engine combustion tests during the first half of this year,” the official said. “Taking into account the scope of the tests, the new rocket will be larger than Unha-3 and it will have a range of about 10,000 kilometers.”

The South Korean intelligence authorities said the rocket engine tests took place at an arms research institute in Sanum-dong of Ryongsong District in northern Pyongyang and the Tongchang-ri Missile and Space Launch Facility near the Chinese border.

An engine combustion test takes place on the ground to confirm the operation of a booster for a missile or a rocket, and the International Institute for Strategic Studies had earlier said the North conducted four engine combustion tests last year.

South Korean authorities suspect the North is preparing a launch of a rocket upgraded from the Unha-3.

After its successful launch of the Unha-3, the state media said the country would continue to bolster its capability by building more rockets with longer ranges under the slogan, “Go for Unha-9 at one burst!” Photos of a model of the Unha-9 missile were featured in the North’s state-run newspaper.

The North is also moving missile components produced at arms factories near Nampo to the Tongchang-ri facility in Cheolsan-gun of North Pyongan Province, for assembly. More frequent movements of trucks near the Tongchang-ri launch site were detected recently, another government source said.

The North also upgraded a launch tower at the Tongchang-ri site. The facility originally had a 50-meter launch tower.

Construction is almost complete on a nearly 70-meter tower. Once the construction is complete, the North will be capable of firing a missile with a longer range and a heavier payload.

Construction work at the base, from which the North fired the Unha-3 in 2012, started in late 2013, a South Korean official told local media.

The North also will likely stage other demonstrations of military prowess.

The Ministry of National Defense has said the North is preparing a large-scale arms parade at Mirim Airport in Pyongyang. Various weapons systems, including SCUD and Rodong missiles and 240-millimeter rocket launchers and armored vehicles, have been brought to the airport for the event.

During a national defense policy consultation meeting hosted by Vice Minister Baek Seung-joo on Friday, the ministry said the parade is aimed at strengthening Kim Jong-un’s control over the country.

The ministry also said that there was a high possibility of an armed provocation around the time of the Oct. 10 anniversary.
“The nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, Kilju County of North Hamgyong Province, is maintaining its readiness to conduct a test,” the ministry said. “The construction project to upgrade the missile launch pad at the Tongchang-ri base is expected to be completed before October.”

The Kim regime has been consistently improving its missile capabilities. In May, the North announced it had successfully fired a missile from a submarine while leader Kim watched firsthand.

A submarine capable of launching a ballistic missile is a security nightmare for not only Seoul but also Washington and Tokyo, although military experts said the North’s program is at an early stage and operational deployment is still years away.

The North also recently completed a military facility on Gal Island near the western inter-Korean border and deployed artillery.

The island is only 4.5 kilometers away from Yeonpyeong Island and the North deployed four 122-milimeter self-propelled artilleries. The same guns were used to shell Yeonpyeong Island in November 2010.

Capital exodus from China reaches $800bn as crisis deepens

Resultado de imagen para economic collapse China

China is engineering yet another mini-boom. Credit is picking up again. The Communist Party has helpfully outlawed falling equity prices.

Economic growth will almost certainly accelerate over the next few months, giving global commodity markets a brief reprieve.

Yet the underlying picture in China is going from bad to worse. Robin Brooks at Goldman Sachs estimates that capital outflows topped $224bn in the second quarter, a level "beyond anything seen historically".

The Chinese central bank (PBOC) is being forced to run down the country's foreign reserves to defend the yuan. This intervention is becoming chronic. The volume is rising. Mr Brooks calculates that the authorities sold $48bn of bonds between March and June.

Charles Dumas at Lombard Street Research says capital outflows - when will we start calling it capital flight? - have reached $800bn over the past year. These are frighteningly large sums of money.

China's bond sales automatically entail monetary tightening. What we are seeing is the mirror image of the boom years, when the PBOC was accumulating $4 trillion of reserves in order to hold down the yuan, adding extra stimulus to an economy that was already overheating.

The squeeze earlier this year came at the worst moment, just as the country was struggling to emerge from recession. I use the term recession advisedly. Looking back, we may conclude that the world economy came within a whisker of stalling in the first half of 2015.

The Dutch CPB's world trade index shows that shipping volumes contracted by 1.2pc in May, and have been negative in four of the past five months. This is extremely rare. It would usually imply a global recession under the World Bank's definition.

The epicentre of this crunch has clearly been in China, with cascade effects through Russia, Brazil and the commodity nexus.

Chinese industry ground to a halt earlier this year. Electricity use fell. Rail freight dropped at near double-digit rates. What had begun as a deliberate policy by Beijing to rein in excess credit escaped control, escalating into a vicious balance-sheet purge.

The Chinese authorities have tried to counter the slowdown by talking up an irresponsible stock market boom in the state-controlled media. This has been a fiasco of the first order.

Multinational Armed Forces Are Training to Enslave Every Modern Nation Following An Economic Collapse

These signs are being carried by truck drivers all over this country.
These signs are being carried by truck drivers all over this country.
Foreign occupation forces are training and will be training to overrun this country in a martial law scenario. Why foreign troops? Because American troops might not be able to be counted upon to carry out the orders of subjugation that will come down from this globalist inspired banker-hijacked administration.
In the past several days, an enormous military exercise has become known to the public. This October over 36,000 troops from more than 30 countries will be gearing up for what NATO calls its largest exercise in over a decade and the exercise is called “TRIDENT JUNCTURE”

Here is a link to a video produced by NATO about TRIDENT JUNCTURE. Watch the video and then ask yourself, “What is missing?”
Were you able to answer the question? What is missing in this NATO report on TRIDENT JUNCTURE is that they do not tell you what kind of threat, or where the threat would be specifically coming from. As I have discovered, the answer to the question as to the location of TRIDENT JUNCTURE is that the drill could be carried out in one location, multiple locations anytime and anywhere.

NATO Disclosure

trident juncture
According to NATO, the TRIDENT JUNCTURE DRILL (TJ 15) is put together in two parts. The CPX/CAX aspect of the drill will be conducted between the dates of October 3-16, 2015. However, this will follow three days what they are calling “battle staff warm-up” from September 30th to October 2nd. The official purpose of this drill is that it will serve as a “joint certification venue for NATO Response Force 2016 (NRF 16) and Full Operational Capability (FOC) event for JFCBS”. Please note the geographical location of these actions remains very vague.

NATO speaks of a complement to TRIDENT JUNCTURE in what is being called “LIVEX“. LIVEX will run from October 21st to November 6th. AIRCOM will be the leading component of the drill and it will involve over 200 aircraft from all NATO nations and they will perform in a specified training area in southern Europe. The importance of southern Europe will be explained in the conclusion part of this article.

Meanwhile Back Home

The United States Army plans to cut 40,000 soldiers from its ranks over the next two years. Please keep in mind that the US military is war mode and the targets are primarily Russia and China. This is national suicide!
This is a reduction that will impact all of the Army’s domestic and foreign posts, as this was recently published from a collection of documents obtained by USA TODAY. If the United States is really on war footing, then these actions, led by President Obama, must be looked at under the lens of treason.n
Certainly, if the reduction in US military force is in diametrically opposite response to the foreign build up of troops on American soil, then Obama’s actions make perfect sense, although it is still undeniable treason. Why would the globalists want to diminish the size of the U.S. military? There are two reasons that come to mind. First, and in the long-term, America is supposed to lose World War III. Second, and in more in the immediate time frame, American troops may oppose an United Nations/NATO “Peacekeeping” force designed to restore order to an American public and military that will not accept the direct usurpation of national sovereignty. Reducing the size of the American military will reduce the size of the American threat to an United Nations takeover. If you dismiss this as idle speculation, than ask yourself why we are seeing the following on American soil?

Why Are Surface to Air Missile Batteries Popping Up Around Key Defense Faciities?

I am certain that many readers will recall when I first published photographs of these surface to air missiles in Texas. The photos came under a lot of criticism and skepticism.  However, the local media covered the event and the eventually the photos were vetted as authentic. My sources told me that these missiles were part of a defensive scheme to protect the nuclear waste disposal plant, PANTEX from low flying suicide aircraft whose goal it would be to take out the plant and create a holocaust in the region.
These are high resolution photos of the SAM missiles, that many say do not exist. These missiles are located 45 miles southeast of Lubbock, TX and were originally photographed by Texas resident, Travis Kuenstler.  These photos will soon be back in the news at The Common Sense Show, as we have just learned that this represents World War III preparations and the countering of the ISIS threat on or southern border.

These photos will soon be back in the news at The Common Sense Show, as we have just learned that this represents the countering of the ISIS threat on or southern border. and now it seems likely that these missiles are also representative of civil war preparation for the military. The suppression of massive civil unrest following an economic collapse does not require the use of surface to air missiles.
I have reports of similar missiles in Colorado, Missouri and Arkansas. Yesterday, I received photos of more surface to air missile batteries in northern Michigan near Camp Grayling, which is a known FEMA camp facility which also doubles as a training facility for security personnel headed to Guantanamo Bay.
Here is an email I received with regard to a very similar set of circumstances in which a missile launcher was places just outside of a major military aircraft maintenance plant.
Hi Dave,
We live on the old Whurtsmith AFB in Oscoda Michigan.  Kallita Aircraft company has maintenance facility here.  We’ve been seeing F-16s flying over and today heard C130’s. A local man just posted this picture,,,,,My husband is retired Air Force and we have been trying to monitor events in our area.  One comment on the posting is that the National Guard units from Grayling are having exercises.  But a missile launcher?????  Yikes
Reportedly, these are new. What are the powers that be expecting?

Foreign Troops Continue to Pour Into the United States

In May, I received and published information from trusted sources, that 36,000 Turks assigned to NATO were in the process of being sent to a variety of Texas bases.
I have also previously covered the fact that thousands of Danish soldiers trained at Camp Grayling in April.
Here is a second email on the topic of the construction of large number of barracks being constructed at Ft. Bliss. However, many of the troops at Ft. Bliss are gone and have redeployed to other duty assignments such as the Middle East. Why would they need additional housing facilities?
Dear Mr. Hodges
I am part of a construction crew who is overseeing a multi-company construction of barracks on Ft. Bliss. Some of them are temporary TDY that I have seen with disaster relief.  I estimate that the new facilities could house as many as 20,000 troops based upon my previous experience in these matters.  
What is really strange is that the normal insignias etc. are missing from our construction sites that would normally be added. There is is nothing in this area of the base to indicate that this is a United States military facility. I have not personally seen military from other countries but there isn’t one of us on my team that does not think that this is the case here.  A fellow friend in the field saw the same at Lackland.  In light of what you have been writing on, I thought I would make this information available to you. For obvious reasons, please do not print my name. 
Recently, WNEM TV in Michigan ran a story in which they noted that 3,000 Polish troops were training in the area. We have seen live combat drills in Flint, Michigan complete with explosions and troops movements. In fact, The Common Sense Show has produced documentation that could fill a book with regard to foreign troop activity on American soil.

Gun Confiscation

No doubt that may of saw that yesterday the Obama administration announced that they were going suspend the gun rights of any Social Security recipient who was not the primary executor of their finances because they are obviously mentally infirm. An estimated five million guns could be confiscated. This is the kind of thing tyrants do before they implement martial law.  The VA has been used to go after Veterans guns. Now the Social Security administration is going after the guns of the elderly. Who is next?

Connecting the Dots

In the coming NATO LIVEX drill, we see that southern Europe is identified as the training ground. There is every reason to believe that NATO’s TRIDENT JUNCTURE is involved in this region as well since the two drills are linked together in NATO documents. What countries comprise southern Europe? This is where the dots begin to connect. Southern Europe is comprised in part by the countries, also called Mediterranean Europe, that extends along the Mediterranean Sea on the Southern edge of Europe. It encompasses the major countries of PortugalSpainItaly, and Greece. Any listener to The Common Sense Show has heard me interview top economists (e.g. Joseph Meyer) who have said first Greece’s economy will fail first followed by Portugal, Spain, and Italy.What do people do when their economies fail and they lose their money? They riot! 
I recently wrote an article which I detailed how draconian the governments have become in these countries. For example, protesting outside of government buildings in Spain is now illegal. These are always preemptive moves governments with failing economies employ to stay in power. I think it is quite clear that TRIDENT EXPOSURE AND LIVEX drills are a multinational martial law force which is training to suppress revolution as these countries will soon experience an economic meltdown. This is a civil war prevention force.
The deployment of foreign troops on American soil is a gathering of the forces to accomplish the same objective as TRIDENT EXPOSURE AND LIVEX. However, as Steve Quayle mentioned on our July 19th interview, Steve said that America is entering into a civil war period. Steve is absolutely correct. As a case in point, these missile batteries we see that are deployed outside key defense facilities are speaking to the fact some officers in our military are moving to protect critical infrastructure military assets.
What does this all mean? It is likely that the concept of Jade Helm is international and joint international military forces will be used to subdue dissidents and uncooperative military forces in countries as they experience an economic meltdown. I think it likely that Jade is a subset, or a component part of the NATO drills. It is also very coincidental that these drills are taking place in such close proximity to each other. Does this point to an impending event? That is the simplest and mostly likely conclusion. Now we should be able to see where Jade Helm fits into these unfolding events.

Hesitating in Sodom

Joseph Herrin

Back in May of this year I posted a blog titled Summer of Preparation.


In that blog post I shared my belief that Yahweh was giving His children who would heed His words of warning, a season of grace whereby they might make preparations for the very difficult days which are coming to America and the nations. There is no lack of voices, or of significant events arriving in the Fall of the year, which would lead one to conclude that our days of peace and prosperity are numbered. I have been careful to state that Yahweh has not given me a revelation of specific dates. However, my hesitancy to set dates does NOT indicate that the Father has spoken nothing to me about what is coming, or that He has NOT given specific leading in what to do to prepare.

I cannot say that dire events will occur in September, or October, though there are a great many voices declaring such things. These voices are to be found within the church, as well as outside.

Things You Must Do Before September 15th - Lindsey Williams

(Note: I am deeply concerned about the integrity of Lindsey Williams, so test what he says carefully. I think it is deplorable for a Christian man to tell people that the economy will begin to collapse between September and December, 2015, and then charge them $48 for a DVD to provide them with the details and advice on what to do to prepare. Lindsey Williams is doing this in league with The Prophecy Club. Woe to the prophets who sell their prophecies!)

You can hear a summary of what Lindsey Williams says on his DVD on another poster’s YouTube account, and the information is free.


I had a discussion with a brother in Christ recently who posed the question, “Are we being set-up?” Specifically, his question had to do with there being a myriad of voices who are now proclaiming that something dire will occur in September or October of this year. What if Christians embrace these prognostications as true and nothing happens?

What I can state confidently is there are significant events set to occur in this time period: solar and lunar eclipses, the end of the Shemitah year, Yom Kippur, the Feast of Tabernacles, the Pope’s speech to the U.S. Congress and to the United Nations, to name a few. I won’t repeat them all here as I have written of them on numerous occasions. See the post Summer of Preparation linked above.

While avoiding setting dates, there have been a number of credible voices speaking of God revealing to them that some calamitous events are drawing near. In a previous blog posting I mentioned that Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham, has been sounding a warning message


Similarly, Carter Conlon, the head pastor at Times Square Church in NYC has been warning of some impending calamity.


All these words would not have much influence upon me if I were not hearing from the Father for myself. Yahweh has been speaking to me for many years about judgment coming to the nations, and of a time of great trouble. He indicated that my own experiences beginning back in 1999 would foreshadow what was coming to a much larger part of the body of Christ. He had selected me as a forerunner, a pioneer, to serve as a guide to others who must walk a similar path. If you have read my testimony, you know that my path has not been an easy one. I went through bankruptcy in 1999. I was instructed by God to let go of everything, house, custom van, furnishings, a lifetime of accumulated possessions, and to begin anew in a much simpler, humbler life. I was directed by God to lay aside my employment as a computer professional and follow wherever He would lead, performing whatever ministry He appointed to me.

Concurrent with this material stripping, I found myself cast outside the church. Like many before me, I was called to go “outside the camp, bearing the reproaches of Christ” (Hebrews 13:13). I have known the rejection of family, and of friends. I have had the censure of the world. My wife and son left me, having chosen this world rather than the reproaches of Christ. I have twice been cast into jail. I have had seasons of being homeless. I have endured exposure and fasting. I have known loneliness and contended with many fears. Like Paul I can attest to having “conflicts without, and fears within” (II Corinthians 7:5). All these experiences and more, the Father revealed to me, are a foretaste of what His overcoming people must experience in the days ahead.

Yahweh has been preparing a group of forerunning saints who have experienced these trials prior to them coming to the church at large. Most in the church will fall away from Christ in the coming hour of testing.

Matthew 24:10
“And at that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another.”

Matthew 13:20-21
“And the one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word, and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away.”

Don’t misunderstand. Many of these people will not stop confessing Christ. However, they will fashion a Christ according to their own will and desires. This will be a Christ who does not mind if they embrace homosexuality, abortion, or any other evil that the world says must be accepted and celebrated. They will fashion a Christ who does not demand that they deny themselves, or take up their cross to follow Him. They will envision a Christ who is unconcerned with sin or holiness, not unlike the one that Pope Francis, Joel Osteen, or Rick Warren claim to serve.

There will be a remnant, however, who will hold fast to the Son of God in faithfulness and truth. These ones must experience many difficulties, many fiery trials in the hour ahead. In this way Yahweh will separate the sheep from the goats; the overcomers in Christ from those who walk in a manner unworthy of Him. The people of God will be purged, purified, and refined. They will grow in faith and conformity to Christ even as the sins of the flesh and unbelief are cast aside.

Although there will be trials aplenty which cannot be avoided by Yahweh’s holy people, there are things they might do to mitigate their suffering. There are both necessary and unnecessary sufferings. The necessary suffering is that which Yahweh has chosen for us for our perfecting as sons and daughters. The unnecessary suffering is that which results from disobedience, unbelief, or some failure to act in accordance with the will of God. In my own journey I have experienced both types of suffering. As a pioneer and guide, I would counsel you to avoid unnecessary suffering by giving yourself diligently to the pursuit of Yahweh’s will for your life.

Let us look to Lot as an example. The Bible tells us that after Lot separated from Abraham, he eventually settled in Sodom. Day after day this godly man would sit in the gates of the city and observe and hear of all the wickedness there. The Bible informs us of the following.

II Peter 2:7-8
He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds)...

Lot saw the immoral conduct of the men of Sodom, and was greatly vexed by it. Nevertheless, he could not find within himself the strength to separate himself from that place. Sodom was a wealthy city. It was prosperous, comfortable, and well situated. There was much that was attractive about the place. Lot’s struggle was revealed when the angels came and visited him. They warned Lot to flee with his wife and daughters, but he hesitated.

Genesis 19:15-16
When the morning came, then the angels hurried Lot, saying, "Get up! Take your wife, and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the iniquity of the city." But he hesitated; and the men grabbed his hand, his wife's hand, and his two daughters' hands, Yahweh being merciful to him; and they took him out, and set him outside of the city.

Brothers and sisters, our Lord has told us that the days of tribulation to fall on the earth will come suddenly like they did to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Luke 17:28-30
“It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.”

Listen to what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking! Even now we are experiencing days similar to those of Sodom and Gomorrah. The report of the great wickedness of the nations has arisen up to heaven. Yahweh is warning His people that judgment will delay no longer. There is a remnant who are vexed in spirit as they observe the sensuality, the profaning of all that is holy, the embrace of every form of wickedness in the land. Yet as grieved as many are by the sin around them, and alarmed as they are by the Spirit’s witness that judgment is near at hand, they hesitate.

How hard it is to depart from the comfort and prosperity of Sodom! For every saint in this hour who is heeding the warnings of the Holy Spirit that judgment is at hand, there are a hundred others who hesitate, halted between two opinions. Because Lot hesitated, he lost all he had. He escaped only with the clothes on his back, and wit the lives of his two daughters. All his flocks, his herds, his servants, his possessions, even his wife, were lost. Had Lot departed Sodom prior to the angel’s visit, when his soul was vexed as he sat in the gates of the city, he would have been spared much loss and suffering.

I ask you, “Are you acting as Lot in this hour?” Are you vexed at the moral debauchery of the nation in which you reside? Are you hearing the voice of heaven warning you of impending judgment? Do you find yourself still hesitating?

You may be reasoning, “It is too much to lay aside my comfortable life. What if the testimonies of judgment are wrong? What if I sell my home, my possessions, and leave my job to follow wherever the Lord would lead, and judgment does not come?” Brothers and sisters, in such times it is necessary that you apply yourself diligently to divide between the voice of the Spirit of Christ and the voice of your own soul and of the adversary. You need to tarry before God until you know with confidence what counsel Yahweh is giving to you, and to know what counsel is arising from your own soul as you wrestle with fears, covetous desires, and unbelief.

Lot had another problem. By moving to Sodom his wife and family had become attached to the place. No doubt, had Lot suggested to his wife and daughters before the angelic visit that they needed to move from that wicked place, they would have protested. Although sternly warned against doing so, Lot’s wife looked back to Sodom as they were fleeing the city. This act revealed how her affections were linked to that place. The consequence of her disobedience was forfeiture of her life. Christ has a similar warning for those who commit to being His disciples.

Luke 9:62
But Yahshua said to him, "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."

Brothers and sisters, I am hearing from many of you in this hour. I know that some are hesitating. Many are trying to hold onto the good life until the very last moment. Some will still be grasping it as it crumbles in their hands. The consequences of hesitating will be calamitous. The Spirit of Christ is speaking to many of you, telling you to sell your homes, pare down your life drastically, embrace a humbler, simpler existence, to get out of debt at once, to follow wherever He is directing you, yet like Lot you hesitate. Will you not suffer a similar consequence due to your lingering when you should be acting?

What are you doing with these moments of peace, this season of grace you have been given? Are you letting opportunity slip away from you? Are you spending your days in idleness, in the very things mentioned by Christ when He spoke of the days of Noah and of Lot?

“they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage... they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building...”

We can learn lessons from both Noah and Lot. Of all the people dwelling upon the earth in the days of Noah, only he walked with God. Only Noah was seeking the fellowship of his Creator. Consequently, he heard Yahweh tell him of judgment to come, and he received instruction regarding how to prepare for the coming calamity. Noah applied himself with diligence, and with a good spirit, to do all that the Lord directed him to do. By his faithfulness, he preserved alive a remnant upon the earth of humanity and all creatures.

Noah was willing to be regarded as foolish by all his neighbors and extended family. He alone was preparing for a disaster they did not see. He was preparing for rain when it had never before rained upon the earth. He embraced the life and the ministry Yahweh appointed to him. He did not argue with God. He did not hesitate. He followed, and in doing so he preserved the life of his family.

One might ask, “Were not Noah and his family eating and drinking during the years in which they built the ark? Were they not building? Did they buy nothing during those years? Did they plant nothing?”

Such questions reveal a misunderstanding of what is being communicated. Our Lord was describing a people whose hearts were given over to pleasures and the pursuit of all that the world has to offer. By contrast, Noah’s heart was given to the pursuit of pleasing God. Although he ate and drank and built and planted and purchased, his life was not self-focused or self-directed. His activities were guided by his commitment to know Yahweh’s will and to do it. He was not building his own little kingdom. Noah was seeking the will of God while being content with food and covering for himself and his family.

As I look at the past 16 years since I heeded the call to leave my previous life behind, a life that was typical of a great many Christians in America, I observe an amazing change. Whereas my life had formerly been focused on self, on consumption and personal acquisition, it transformed into a life focused on giving to the needs of others. In my early life up until the age of 38 my life had been largely self-centered, even though I loved God and was more involved in church activities than most Christians. I had been buying ever nicer cars. I married a wife and had children. I purchased a series of nicer and larger homes. I was increasing in material goods, and life was comfortable.

In 1999, Yahweh took me through a great emptying. To say the process was difficult, even painful, would be an understatement. Yet the result of it was great liberty and much spiritual fruit. Yahweh was leading me to come out from the corruption that is called Christianity, and to be led by His Spirit in all my ways. I was challenged by God to accept any lifestyle experience He chose for me, and to embrace whatever work He appointed to me. This was a complete restructuring of my life. The end result looked nothing like the lives of my brothers and sisters in Christ. It differed fundamentally from the life I had known in all my years up to that time.

Gone were the days of living a life whose underlying principles were no different from my lost neighbors. The churches today do not teach new converts that they must lay aside a pursuit of materialism. They do not inform them that they cannot serve both God and mammon. Quite the opposite. The wealthy, prosperous, and successful members of the church are held up as examples to be imitated. The financially well-off have more money to put in the offering plate. Their material success is attractive to lost people who want the same thing. Overlooked is the reality that the underlying principle of selfishness and self-interest remains intact in the churches today. There is no self-denial in being a materially comfortable Christian. One’s focus remains on oneself, one’s own family. Such individuals give to others only after satisfying their own desires. The tendency is to increase their own standard of living whenever possible, giving morsels out of their surplus to others. A life devoted to pleasing God and serving others is seldom understood or apprehended.

I know the protestations which will follow. I have heard them many times over the years. “Joseph, God has not called all of us to quit our jobs and to abandon our manner of living and to live out of a bus! Who would send you support if everyone who read your words quit their jobs?”

There is both great unbelief, and great misunderstanding revealed in such questions. To answer the first objection, I have never instructed anyone to pattern their life after the specific aspects or details of my own. I am not telling anyone to quit their job, divest themselves of all earthly possessions, or to buy a motorhome to be able to travel wherever God would lead them. What I am counseling them to do is to surrender their will and the direction of their life to Yahweh. This is something that the vast majority of Christians have not done. What I have repeatedly urged all those who would be Christ’s disciples to do is to surrender to go WHEREVER Yahshua would lead them, and to do WHATEVER He would command them to do.

If you have never made such a wholesale abandonment of your life into the hands of God, then you have not yet begun to be a disciple of Christ. His invitation was always the same. “Come, take up your cross, and follow Me.” If you are choosing your own course through life, you are not following Christ. If you are choosing for yourself a comfortable material life, you are not taking up your cross.

The events coming to America and the nations are ultimately designed by God to shake the church out of this false form of Christianity that is devoid of self-denial and which knows almost nothing of the surrender of one’s will to God. God will allow the economy to crash; for the fat, material lifestyle enjoyed by so many Christians to collapse. They will lose their homes, their luxury vehicles, their furnishings. Many will escape with nothing more than the clothes on their back. They will not know where their next meal is coming from. Then, set free of the perverted religion that has sought to marry the pursuit of God to the pursuit of mammon, Yahweh will invite His people to set their affections on things above, rather than on the things of this earth.

Most will balk at this. Many will seek succor in the arms of the beast system of this world. They will turn to the government for food and shelter, and vainly try to rebuild the material lifestyle they lost. A remnant, however, will turn their affections to God. Understanding that it was Yahweh who stripped them of their material goods, they will say to the Lord, “Here I am to do with as You please. Show me the way that I might walk in it.”

You don’t have to wait until the economic collapse comes. There will be no reward, no praise, for those who have this present material lifestyle torn from their grasp. If you seek God now, laying everything you are, and everything you possess at His feet, to be disposed of as He directs, there will be great reward. Remember the words of Christ to the rich young ruler.

Luke 18:22
When Yahshua heard these things, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have, and distribute it to the poor. You will have treasure in heaven. Come, follow me."

The opportunity described in these words is fleeting. The time to divest oneself of material goods, houses, and lands is coming to a close. Soon, it will be impossible to sell such things. Many will lose their goods to forfeiture. There will be nothing left to give to the poor, or to make preparations for the life God has chosen for you.

Before the fire fell on Sodom, we were informed that Lot had many flocks and servants. They were so numerous that Lot and Abraham found it necessary to separate and go in different directions. Lot could have sold these flocks and herds and given them to the poor and received treasure in heaven. Yet, all he had perished when fire and brimstone fell from heaven and consumed all the people in the valley and vicinity of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot was left with neither provision for his own family, or provision to give to others.

Brothers and sisters, you see America being transformed into Sodom and Gomorrah right before your eyes. Warnings of Yahweh’s judgment are being sounded forth from many sources. What has been your response to these things? If your soul is vexed at the unrighteousness in the land, if you are grieved by all you see and hear, you do well. However, if you sit transfixed, hesitating, lingering in the gates of Sodom when the Lord would speak to you to act otherwise, you will bring unnecessary suffering upon yourself.

Are you finding yourself transfixed, unable to move? Then you know the experience of Lot. He was a man of like passions with us. Even with the angels of God urging him with haste to act, and to depart Sodom before the fire fell, he lingered. I am therefore not surprised when so many who read my admonitions find themselves similarly rooted in place, seemingly unable to act upon the words of warning shared with them. I cannot take you by the hands and compel you. You will either act, or not act. The responsibility is yours, and the consequences will be laid at your feet. I pray that you might set your heart to know Yahweh’s will and to do it quickly without further hesitation. The hour is late.
