Prophecy’s Extra Oil 67: Log Cabins and Prayer
from Remnant Doctrine Keepers
©copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry
Log Cabins: Everyone might recall Jesus’ words, “When you see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel, standing in this holy place where he ought not to be, then flee to the mountains and watch for me in the clouds.” Now, remember that He and the Apostles had left the Temple and were walking in the City; therefore, He was not talking about the Abomination “standing” in the Holy Temple.
It was learned in 2005 that the Abomination had been seen, not once but twice, in the Holy City of Jerusalem as early as 1993: we reported to our brothers and sisters at that time and again just recently. The first time he was filmed kissing the Wailing Wall. Jesus knew this last church age would find cities being the most dangerous places for His remnant flocks: heavily populated with the majority populations in a rage and prepared to strike God’s Doctrine Keepers, whom they blame for all of earth’s ills— which action is to “curse God.” Bear in mind, though, that Jesus also warned, “Be sure your flight is not in the winter nor on the Sabbath day.” As Jesus obeyed the Seventh Day, so must we.
A new found remnant Brother, Paul of Oregon, recently contacted us with a vision he had had some time ago and was happy to share it with us. He also shared with us that his brother Waldo also has the gift of prophecy and has been speaking the same timeframe for Christ’s return as have we: “no later than mid-Oct to mid-Nov 2011.” Paul noted that he and his brother had begun to think they stood and spoke alone; a feeling we know all to well. So, it was quite a blessing to hear from Paul.
In Paul’s vision he saw a large log cabin up in the mountain wilderness. Gathered there were he and other remnant brothers and sisters living off the land, owing no man, and patiently waiting for Christ to arrive. Paul owns such a cabin and currently plans a move there very soon, the location of which is “need to know” data that will be given to only those who live God’s Word, His Ten Statutes and have the faith of and in Jesus Christ: no “flattering lips” allowed.
Considering what is about to happen, we feel everyone understands this “need to know” policy as a way to protect all fleeing sheep when the violence begins full force. If we had known, we would have fled in 1993; so, the sooner the better.
Brother Paul’s vision was very similar to a novella published many years ago, “Project Sunlight,” that told of a small group of Doctrine Keepers, influenced by an angel, who finally had to flee the cities and found themselves joining others at a mountain retreat. Alas, bounty hunters found them and were about to kill them when— Voila! — Christ arrived in the clouds, snatched them up to Him, and left behind dead those who were set to murder His small flock.
Some 29 years ago, we purchased and gave away several hundred copies of the book; for “Project Sunlight” is a beautifully told story, complete with validating verse references, and it might still be available today either through Southern Publishing or Amazon.com. One recipient of the book comes to mind: she, from Oklahoma, was in the Texas hospital’s ICU waiting room preparing to see her son who had been critically injured in a motorcycle wreck. He was not expected to live, so a copy of the book was given her in the hope it would ease her pain during the agonizing hours ahead. The next day, she and her son were gone and it was feared he had died.
A year later, the phone rang one day and it was that woman: “I just came across the book again and wanted to call to let you know how much peace it gave us. Our son did live and without much in the way of permanent damage, though there was some recovery time here at our home in Oklahoma. My husband, on the other hand, died just a few months later. “Project Sunlight” and your wonderful message inside got me through all this. I am so grateful for your gift.”
She made our day, for her call came at a time when it seemed no one was listening to God’s Truth, to His warnings and to the times being shared. Rarely do we have the opportunity to know if the seeds we plant then spout; but, when it will serve to our encouragement at a time when we are weary and feeling useless, God always gives us a quick peek. Everything we do and say is to plant seeds and, while we may never know the outcome, much good will be reaped where and when it should be. So, keep planting seeds! After all, we have the lukewarm and cold still to reach. And we are!
Schools & Prayer:
It is amazing what one atheist was able to get removed from our schools and, because of it, the utter chaos and deaths that have ensued since then. Brother Frank in England sent the following: A new Pledge of Allegiance and School prayer by a 15yo unnamed Arizona student. Neither our Pledge of Allegiance nor the Lord’s Prayer are allowed in public schools because the word “God” is mentioned in both; thus the teen offered a new school prayer in poetic form:
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And, anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the State.
We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks. . .
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed day,’ our Senior King. . .
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns, the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be short, my soul please take!
We must say, the poem was beautifully written and makes very strong points about what has happened to our young people since prayer was removed from schools. BonnieQ recalls being on the devotional council when in high school, remembering that regardless of what little skirmishes were going on before prayer, the remainder of the day was always calmer after prayer. Regardless of having lived in the Bible Belt, her school had students who either did not believe in the Pledge of Allegiance or did not believe in God. They did not complain; they just did not participate. So be it, for everyone is entitled by God to have their own opinion; right or wrong. But, no one has the right to force their opinions upon others, especially by that one person—
Indeed, Madeline O’Hare single-handedly brought to fruition God’s warning that, in these end of days, the “children shall rise up lawless.” And, so they have in numbers so huge it is staggering. As Pope John Paul II said on his deathbed, when advised that the courtyard was filled to overflowing with young people, “I called and you have come.” Satan knows no boundaries. Praise the Lord, he is about to the feel the pinch of prison loneliness and only his future destruction upon which to think.

Prophecy’s Extra Oil 55: Vision Weightless & Vision White
©copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry
SHARE, Share, share these Extra Oils with everyone you know and pray that all who are not in compliance with God and Christ will come into instant obedience because they truly love the Father and His Christ more than they love this life and even loved ones. The hourglass is almost out of sand and the eleventh hour has chimed thus the archangel’s trumpet is about to sound with a mighty blast and the wicked shall fall dead from the brightness of our Lord and Saviour’s return to catch us up into the air.
Economy: Banks, 16 fail so far in 2010; Nature: SO.CA. mudslides damage 50+ homes; MX, mudslide kills at least 18, 20+ missing; NE, blizzards kill at least 2, 100s of 1000s w/o power, new snow storm moving in; HAITI, people working to clear roads, help-org paying them equal to $4 per day, $1-2 more than norm; Health: CO, Boulder, 2 planes collide-3 dead, glider flew free/3 passengers safe; CN, power plant explodes, at least 5 dead, investigation launched; NJ, NY, mumps outbreak hit +1049 rising; Lawless: 100K young US girls w/pimps or traffickers on streets for Super Bowl; FBI to track our Internet-surfing logs [as if they do not now; they already monitor our phone calls]; Mother/Daughters:
TBN: 02/05—More than usual fanfare was made about the Van Impes’ having doctorate degrees, Rexella even turning to Jack to say, “Thank God for Dr Van Impe.” Then, while the screen flashed book cover after book cover, Rexella ticked off the names of their authors who held, and others who hold, doctorates in theology that wrote about the antichrist and prophetic interpretations of these end of days, including Papal Rome officials; with each of whom “Dr. Van Impe” agreed that their interpretations are also his. “Thank God for all these doctors, these great theologians!”
——God’s Sabbath this week was the night for Van Impe to make a huge issue of listening to and believing only those with doctorates in theology, including high praise for Pope John Paul II [Abomination of Desolation seen twice in the Holy City, as Daniel and Christ warned] and Pope Benedict XVI, who currently is pushing world peace and domination by the World Church.
——Insistence that only trained theologians can teach and interpret God’s Word and prophecies is to imply that Jesus lied when He said ‘babes’, untutored by man, would perfect Truth and praise. Part of perfecting Truth directly relates to God’s Law, of which Jesus said, “Ye ought to have taught the weightier matters;” yet, corporate Christendom shuns the Law altogether.
——Nevertheless, each of the authors Rexella highlighted, ‘Doctors’ as it were, teach a 7yr tribulation for the wicked left behind ‘alive’ to endure after the ‘saints’ are ‘raptured’ to spend seven years in heaven: where they are prepared to help Jesus teach the wicked for 1000-years upon their return. According to them, 6000 years was not enough time to learn, heed and obey. There is not one Biblical truth in any of their claims.
——Then, Van Impe began preaching about the only way to get to heaven is through Jesus, which we agree, and that the antichrists are those who deny that He is the only way: “there are 500 references to Jesus being the way and 700 references to His shed blood for our sins in the New Testament [he forgot to mention that the shed blood was for our ‘past’ sins]. Those who preach that there are many ways to heaven besides Jesus are the antichrists. And, Obama said there are many ways!” Then, a quick break for Rexella to flash his DVD/CD “The World Dictator” $24.95— timed as a hint that Obama is the antichrist Van Impe has admittedly dubbed the World Dictator “standing in the wings.”
——Van Impe implies that Christ did not come in the flesh the first time by his claim of a 7-years tribulation loosely and admittedly based on Daniel’s 490-yrs. prophecy; the same last seven years that Daniel said would begin with Christ’s 3.5 years ministry, followed by the Apostles’ ministry; then, the seventh year, that is the 490th year, ended with minister Stephen’s murder: after which Christ selected Saul/Paul to replace Stephen to specifically minister to Gentiles, we pagans, which trumped the beginning of the ‘Time of the Gentiles.’ But, Van Impe implies more lies than he ever will realize or admit.
——To declare that those seven years have yet to be fulfilled is to imply that Jesus— 1. never came in the flesh the first time, as Jesus warned would occur; 2. never hung on the cross; 3. never rose from the grave to be seen by over 500 people for 40 days and nights after He arose; 4. never ascended to heaven; 5. never sent the Holy Spirit to the Apostles; 6. never chose Paul to replace Stephen; thus, 7. ‘Time of the Gentiles’ never began. God’s number is perfect! Failing event 7 means that salvation was never offered to the Gentiles, yet we pagans know full well that the Apostles and Paul did and so have their proselytes ever since— simultaneous to Satan’s deceit in his apostate synagogues and false leaders.
——No matter how emphatically a preacher or evangelist preaches Jesus, lies by implication, or in any form, are an abomination to God: it takes only one lie for God to cancel out every good thing they might say or do: as Jesus said, “I know you not.” Van Impe even added that ‘Only by Jesus! Works will never get you there!’ Using the term ‘works,’ amid the mother and daughters, is directed at God’s Ten Statutes they claim no longer apply and teach no need to concern oneself with working to obey them. Van Impe thus implies Jesus et al are liars.
——Jesus and His Apostles and Paul all lived and taught, as Revelation confirmed three times, what it takes to enter the gates of heaven to receive eternal life: “Do my Father’s Will, His Doctrine; It takes both faith and works; We know we love God because we obey His Commandments, His Doctrine; Those who have the faith of and in Jesus Christ and obey God’s Commandments.”
——Can God’s Word be more transparent? Can man cloud the issue any worse? No to the former and yes to the latter: take your pick— life-saving transparency or dark clouds of death. Be prepared by clarity and obedience or be ‘surprised’ by a thief in the night. Take great care that you not be deemed an unbeliever, as cited in Hebrews chapter 4.
Sister Debby: TSaS’ Oil 54 reported the vision “House of Holes,” in which Sis Deb pre-commented about a similar recurring dream: a house with different, odd shaped holes in it being indicative of myriad denominations, each with varied twists on God’s Truth. By way of Holy Spirit, Deb shares understanding: “I have been having bits and pieces of this dream for a while. I knew when it was time for me to understand and to share with Christ’s church, I would.
——”Even though the house is full of holes, those holes do not represent a way of escape, for the people inside have been running from themselves, their own worldly neediness taking center stage instead of God and Christ; and they float, as if there is no gravity, nothing to ground them when they died upon Christ’s return [re: weeping, wailing and gnashing teeth]. This goes on until Christ’s second return after our 1000 years in heaven, when His own, we Saints, will be with Him and the people inside the house will die again… the second death.
——”The holes represent nothingness, Christ’s complete separation from those who have decided to walk away from the Truth they heard [re: Parable of the Sower]. They step into the house, which are Satan’s divided synagogues, and just keep going. They have nothing to hang onto because they have forsaken Christ’s Truth. Their fall is endless; these people’s floating also represents the world today in chaos and with no true direction [there is direction, just not a direction true to God’s Word].
——No one seems able to believe in anything for any length of time. They float from one abomination to another, making up gods as they go [or creating God as they want Him to be instead of what they need Him to be and as He truly is]. In the end, they will have what they truly believed in: NOTHING!”
——TSaS: Please recall sister Tammy’s vision of being totally disconnected from God and Christ; add Bonnie’s vision House of Holes, and combine both with sister Debby’s house vision: all together they paint a very sad picture of what is and will happen to the majority of professing Christians as well as pagans, agnostics and atheists. These three visions are the only warnings to the lukewarm, those who had the Truth but turned away in favor of the world and its teachings.
——In every case of one turning away, it has been due to each individual’s emotional needs of and for the world: more about insecurities regarding love than about money, although many seek earth’s riches of gold and silver. Oh, how much better it would have been for them if their needs had been directed to the Spirit and the love of God and Christ.
——Deep down these people want to believe they can continue in sin yet be redeemed, thus they go for man’s ways instead of God’s Canon and having the faith of and in His Son, our personal Lord and Saviour. “There is a way that seemeth right to man but it is the way to destruction; having a form of godliness yet lacking the power of God.”
——Now, for the last vision, although certainly not the last Word, the Holy Spirit has given sister BonnieQ to date hereof: That great wedding in the sky!
A Vision in Snow White
©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry
Sometimes I feel like King David, who often was given visions that he wrote in Psalm’s poetic voice; though his poetry puts mine to shame. There are times when visions are translated by way of general text, other times I am moved to poetry though not at all a poet; and, it has been the same for numerous Bible lessons the Spirit has provided in poetic formats. So it was with this vision given to me in the wee hours of July 2006, following the tumultuous year of 2005 filled with visions, weeping, and near death:
She moved gracefully up an aisle of the plushest white,
her exquisite satin gown flowing in pristine white,
from head to floor veils draped in the sheerest lacy white;
on each side of her, pews were graced with flowers of white.
At the golden Ark she took a Bible, gold and white,
thereupon dozens of perfect roses of pure white.
She slowly turned to face brothers and sisters in white,
each ornamented with more flowers of velvet white.
I gasped, my breath trapped; for I was her vision of white,
then my Groom entered and tread that carpet of snow white,
draped in an elegant, flowing robe of flawless white,
above His heart a spotless rose of the purest white,
His hair and face full of a bright, joyous Light of white.
A new vision last night, given by Spirit’s white Light:
confirmed me a betrothed virgin bride through God’s white Light
before my Groom invited the guests of His white Light;
that I’d changed to live by Father’s Doctrine, His white Light,
Christ and God’s Law taking me from darkness to white Light;
the Bible a sign I also had taught His white Light.
My Groom’s entry meant earth’s time stopped, her realm snuffed of Light,
the wickeds’ first demise by my Groom’s sudden white Light.
The door closed, death not a part of weddings in white Light.
My Lord justified me, yet warns those not in white Light:
lukewarm, not cold, they still deny God’s Law in white Light.
O man, time is short; turn from dark lies to God’s white Light.
+ + + + + + +
This dream came before daylight on Tuesday morning, 11 July 2006. At age 13, when the Holy Spirit began giving me dreams and visions or warnings, I’ve never had a nonsense dream since. If He has no word to give me, I dream not at all. At the onset of this vision, I recall thinking I seemed to be watching myself BEFORE the Bride turned so I could see that it was, yet also thinking that getting married was not possible for me; at least not on this old earth, not according to God’s opinion.
As the dream progressed, I realized the significance of not only a wedding but the remarkable vision of everything, absolutely everything and everyone present bathed in the purest of white; save the golden Ark and the gold-embossed white Bible. Last, but certainly a critical part of this dream, was the revelation of just how soon is Christ’s arrival: this being the fifth time in 9 years God has reminded that earth and man’s time is rapidly running out, thus prompting me to once again warn as many as will heed.
The difference in the first four visions is that the wedding was not revealed at all, each of the first four strongly indicating a preparation time for Christ’s “quick” return; which brings to mind Christ’s wedding parable of the 10 virgins and their oil lanterns. The fact this one is the wedding actually beginning in the glorious heavenly sanctuary vividly points to a very “quick” arrival of Christ to claim His Bride: His small, obedient flocks.
This vision in no way was meant to indicate I was Christ’s only Bride; showing me as such was nothing more than a validation to me of who and what I am and where I am going at mankind’s end. Every true brother and sister in Christ is the Bride in this vision; validated, if you can place yourself there by your love for Christ and love of obedience.
I cannot begin to express how short is man’s time. There is no time left to waste on the nonsense of this world self-destructing and man’s wretched behaviour: obedience because of Love is required sincerely and immediately— in the instant, if you will. The Spirit having me share this vision yet again in 2010, at most only 2 years away from the wedding date, reveals the lukewarm now being in extreme danger of perishing forever. This is their last warning, there will not be another and another and yet another— as there have been over the last nineteen (19) years of Laodicea.
Man’s lies would have us believe there is much time left; why, even 1000 years! And, man uses God’s words to justify that all mankind will be saved: “All men shall bow” yet that is not what the statement means. It refers to only those who believe and obey, all of whom will bow to our Lord and obey God’s Doctrine. This is exactly why the world’s majority population will be ‘surprised’ when Christ arrives and nothing goes down as man has told them it would: thus the analogy “like a thief in the night.”
We of Christ’s flock cannot be surprised, for we heard the first exceedingly loud trumpet of 1991 and the succeeding trumpets announcing His quick arrival. We are prepared with plenty of oil for our lanterns— the understanding of prophecy, awareness of the ticking signs and plagues’ accelerating intensity marking time coming to an end. “6000 years IS enough,” so saith the Lord.
All of the visions reported in the last few Oils, including sisters Tammy and Debby’s, will be combined into an upcoming Extra Oil for ease in referencing the warnings to Christ’s Church and the lukewarm of this last era of earth’s history. As usual, we urge you to share them with all who will read and heed and withstand Satan’s arrows.
News of Haiti, Time/Age, God’s Armageddon, 7-Gifts for Righteousness, Gabriel Shares God’s Grief x2
Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 51: ARMAGEDDON! God’s Truth
©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry
——Haiti has been struck with at least M4.0 aftershocks almost daily, at this time over 54, but magnitudes have been in the 5.0 range up to 6.1 in the last few days. The 7.5 that struck 10 days ago occurred in a major tectonic plate that lies beneath the outer rim of Haiti’s entire length and beyond, a part of the Ring of Fire; and, there is a narrower tectonic plate along its entire inner rim, part of which abuts the Dominican Republic. Major tectonic plates literally surround Haiti: a force that will fulfill Revelation’s 7th plague ” mountains fall, islands disappear”— but only when Christ comes in the clouds.
——So far, it seems all the quakes have been in the outer plate, with the exception of one that occurred a few days ago. It would not be surprising if the inner plate becomes just as active; so, please pray that the diverse sign moves away and pray for the people’s faith and patience as crews struggle to get food, water and medical aid to them.
—— The poem below precedes a 2002 question posed to TSaS about Armageddon’s “where and when”: that word used once in the Bible (Rev. 16:16). First, sister Debby shares a poem; read more at http://allpoetry.com/poet/debbysmiles ~ If you share Debby’s poem, add title/copyright notice: “Time and Age,” ©2010 Debby Carlson-Sorenson
Time and age; it passes
and so do we from this life
to whatever we choose
But it’s the in-between
when our human selves crash
and we reflect on all the things
We regret; we forget that
with each fall and scrapped knee,
each time the dust settled
It was Him who was there.
It was Christ who washed the dirt
from our feet and lead us
To a place where time and age
has passed, eternity sings
and nothing else matters.
I want to hear that trumpet sound,
see the clouds fall away
and Christ Himself call my name..
A R M A G E D D O N ! — God's Truth ©copyright 2002 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.
Question: The final battle between good and evil will be fought where and when? Much of the answer below is a partial excerpt from “Bind Up the Testimony, Seal the Law” written in 1998 and published in 2003 — You will want to get out your Bible and look up the scripture references as you read. Following this treatise is Gabriel sharing God’s grief.
Theologians and pastors claim the “where” as Armageddon, a Canaan plains area of the ancient city Megiddo, about 60-70 miles north of Jerusalem on the banks of Kishon River near Mt. Tabor and the Sea of Galilee: the former domain of the Hebrew tribe Issachar. These so called Bible experts further and rather vaguely claim that it will occur “when” Christ returns for a 1000 years ministry to the wicked. Their answers are based solely on one scripture found in Revelation and believed by most professing, Sunday keeping Christians: mainly because this erroneous interpretation is offered by those “tutored by man” thus holding doctorate degrees in theology. Jesus said, “Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings (untutored by man) is praise and truth perfected.”
——Having cited man’s finite opinion, and without including extensively researched historical data or paraphrasing scriptures, this rendering offers Almighty God’s definitive answer regarding both man’s view as well as Ishi’s own absolutes. FYI: Ishi is the name by which God will be called in the restored earth. It is Hebrew for husband. Please bear in mind that, contrary to the above version, many books of the entire Bible actually interpret this specific prophecy, therefore not all references are provided hereinbelow.
——Allow the Bible to interpret itself and TSaS provides applicable historical data only as required for clarity. Note: neither Revelation nor any other book of the Bible is necessarily written chronologically, as Theologians and pastors tout. This tidbit as well as studying the Bible according to God’s prescribed method are vitally important in allowing God to interpret His own Word, to-wit: Bible interpreting the Bible. Members might want to take another look at the response to “How, Why and Who to Trust” recently posted. Two helpful hints: 1) rightly divide the Word; and 2) “What was in the beginning is today, what is today will be tomorrow, and what is tomorrow was in the beginning.”~~ the great preacher of Ecclesiastes.
——While Rev. c16 is fact in metaphor, it does not remedy our question, rather it specifically refers to the time of redemption, which is different from the final battle— the utter destruction of evil and cleansing of the earth with purging fire. It should be noted that in no way does this passage or any book of the Bible state that the battle WILL occur at the time and place of the Rev. c16 gathering, to-wit: Armageddon. It shows just the assembling in the general vicinity of Armageddon for “the battle of that great day of the Lord,” which day actually refers only to Christ’s return, not the battle itself.
——FYI: “As it is on earth, so it is in heaven:” It is necessary to understand how man’s criminal courts work in order to understand how God’s court functions. In earthly murder trials, following a preponderance of evidence, a judgment by a jury or a judge then is rendered of either innocent or guilty, at which time an innocent is immediately set free. At a later date, another hearing is held to determine actual penalty sentencing on guilty verdicts— for God’s purpose, death. Still, death sentences are not carried out at the same time as sentencing or even shortly thereafter. And, so it is with God’s criminal court.
——Mankind’s trial began in 1844, when God’s hidden truths were revealed to the world, the evidence noting obedience or disobedience, during which time all people were given 147 years to accept God’s truths by demonstrating obedience or remaining disobedient, each generation judged accordingly. Final judgment was reached in 1991, which opened the last church age of Laodecia— an era Jesus said will be very short compared to prior six church ages. In this age, only the lukewarm can still turn around: Laodicea, the age of sentencing and claiming of a just people.
——Christ’s return metaphorically represents the second hearing for sentencing, thus he arrives with our sentences: whether it be life eternal evidenced by meeting Him in the air, or it be ‘twice dead’ evidenced by being left behind dead of a first death—which sentence is for a second death to all those not found in the Book of Life, execution to be carried out at a later date. There is an incredible volume of scripture validating this premise, thus it begs a question: What really happens the day and hour Christ comes in the clouds? In the interim, an explanation of the answer follows:
——Revelation 16:12-14,16 ~~ These 4 verses are disrupted by v.15. It is the “spirits of devils” that consider it the “the battle of.” Verses 13 and 14 clearly cite who begins preparing for the battle by assembling the “kings of the world,” which means their armies. Then, verse 16 continues, “he gathered them in Armageddon.” Note that “he” is not capitalized: the interpreters understood that “he” refers back to verses 13-14, Lucifer as it were, not God of whom the Great Whore attempts to convince the world. The 4 verses together reveal Lucifer gathering his angels and human minions for what he teaches is the final battle with God over the dominion of mankind, earth and heavens. The ongoing wars in the region are Lucifer’s way of “clearing the way” for the great battle he expects to wage with God.
——It is Lucifer who has determined that the battle will be waged at Armageddon, which timing of the assembling may be recognized in Luke 21:20: “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by the world’s armies;” consider Feb. 1991 Desert Storm— the Holy Lands remain surrounded by the worlds armies to this day. It behooves us to avoid a perception of God calling “the spirits of devils” either to battle or to this specific location: Middle East in general. Other scripture will disprove such premise. V.14 refers to “that great day of God Almighty,” DAY being an announcement clue for Christ’s living flocks hoping for His quick arrival in the “midst” of that battle as confirmed by v.15. Isaiah reveals the “spirits of devils” gathering untimely and will not do battle with God. (Isa 9:5; 54:15-16)
——Revelation 16:15,17-21— Continuing from above, v.15 is inserted amidst Lucifer’s assembling merely as an announcement advising Christ’s children that by this marshalling of kings (world’s armies) they are to understand Jesus is about to “come in the clouds to take up His flock to meet Him in the air”. (see also: Matthew 24:30-31,36; Luke 21:20)— Revelation v.17,20-21 pick back up with events that occur at Christ’s coming and the devastation following in His wake as He takes up his sheep. This reveals that of the last seven plagues, the seventh vial is poured out behind Jesus as He moves across the skies from east to west reaping His harvest. (Gen 1:2; Isaiah 24:1-5,20-22; 34:2-3; Jeremiah 26:32-33; Matthew 13:41-42,49-50; Psalm 37:10,38; 110:5-6; II Thessalonians 1:7-10)
——Special note should be made on v.19: Babylon (the great mother whore) was divided into 3 false prophet divisions centuries ago, so the first line of v.19 serves to identify Great Babylon— her religious divisions of pagan, papal, protestant, her largest division being the United States harboring them all. Here, God simply wants us to know that He has not forgotten their abominations and the affect they have had on His sheep, for which the three are now being rewarded with suffering and later will be re-rewarded with utter destruction. The passage then flashes back to a scene of destruction falling upon old earth as Christ’s sheep are redeemed from both grave and from among the living aka the Elect.
——Redemption complete and we are on our way to heaven. It is here that Father God says, “It is done!” Jesus said the same on the cross, but He was referring only to His part in that phase of His Father’s prophecy for earth and mankind’s temporary lifespan: Christ ministered then died for our “past” sins, saying as He drew His last breath, “It is done.”
——God’s interpretation to our question is found also in Revelation 20:1-9,12-15. It is here and later that we begin to understand that God has Seven Gifts to bestow upon the righteous people. Oh, how I love God’s number, seeing it add up in God’s Word time and again! Rev. c20 speaks only of Christ taking up His sheep followed by Satan’s symbolic chaining/imprisoning: the literal, in this case, being that he is left alive on a desolate earth populated with dead humans and from which he cannot escape for the duration of our ‘first gift’ received of a 1000 years in heaven. Did you catch that? The 1000 years in heaven is our “first gift” for unerringly loving and obeying God and His Son. Prison first is fitting retribution for Satan persecuting humans for 6000 years while knowing his execution will follow.
——Our ‘second gift’ is witnessing Satan’s imprisonment. The chain is symbolic of his inability to ever enter heaven again, which was established in Rev. 12:8-9 and occurred in about 538BC. Here we simply are reminded that Lucifer no longer has the power to leave earth. Genesis 1:2, and other passages, clarify that “bottomless pit” means an earth void of life. Only the first part of Rev. 20:10 applies to this time frame, whereas the remainder is a flashback to events that occur at redemption; thus, “tormented day and night for ever and ever” means a 1000 years seems like forever to the wickeds’ tormented souls. Our ‘third gift’ is when we reach heaven and God opens His books to us. And, the ‘fourth gift’ is the wiping away of our tears and total healing. The ‘fifth gift’ is the wedding and wedding supper with our Lord and Saviour in heaven.
——Then we are shown what happens after the 1000 years we’ve spent in heaven with Christ. The wicked dead are resurrected— see also Rev. 14:17-18, grapes represent the wicked— and Lucifer immediately deceives them for three months— a season— into believing God still can be defeated. Really stupid, isn’t he? Satan then gathers them around old Jerusalem, because that’s where Christ and His saintly warriors are camped upon our return from heaven. Now God has called the time and place for that final battle; which will be no battle at all, according to Isaiah’s citations regarding this event. But, of the location God is even more specific, which should lend clarity.
——Joel 3:11-15— The valley of Jehoshaphat, valley of decision/judgment, to-wit: where sentencing of old was carried out— today called Kidron Valley. Interestingly, the valley of Jehoshaphat (Kidron) lies east of Mt. Zion and west of Jerusalem. The valley is directly outside Jerusalem’s east portal called Dung Gate, the only exit through which garbage and human waste were to be removed from the ancient city. It is that same valley in which God historically executed first death sentencing upon those persistently disobedient and/or for having harmed His chosen people.
——Our ‘sixth gift‘: Joel confirms the location for the final destruction of all that is evil, filthy and wicked, inasmuch as v.17-18 follow the execution with a description of new Jerusalem as set out in Revelation 21:1-6. It is only after the complete purging of evil that a New Jerusalem (Psalm 37:20), wherein God and Jesus ARE the temple, comes down out of heaven and Christ’s saints at last inherit a newly restored earth. (Isaiah 26:14)
——So now we have God’s opinion. Where~~ Valley of Jehoshaphat; When: following the sheep’s’ 1000 years reign in heaven with Christ. Of course, that 1000 years just might foster another question: “Why a 1000 years? Why not just do it all when Christ returns?” The answer also is given in God’s Holy Word: that 1000 years is earth’s Sabbath rest, during which time she shall lie fallow— unable to support life— because mankind “did not give earth her Sabbath rests of every seventh year,” as God had ordered. For each day of man’s week, earth was given 1000 years as a day. Thus, she was to labor 6000 years, then have her Sabbath rest the seventh 1000 years. 6000 years has expired.
——Nonetheless, an incredible logic and absolute justice is found in God’s Word unblemished by mankind, undeniably better than any penalty humans could devise against criminals. What better punishment than to have Satan left on a dead world littered with rotting, stinking bodies from one end of earth to the other as well as the unopened graves of his previously deceased followers: all for 1000 years of “weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.” No one to torment, no one to tempt, no one to torture, no one to follow him, no one to do his biding… no one at all, not even his fallen angelic army. How awful that will be for Beelzebub, who has been so busy for 6000 years deceiving the world and torturing God’s people. (Obadiah v.3-4; Amos 4:10)
——Man’s courts should eliminate death sentences, for how much better than that a rapist or murderer should have to live in confinement all of his/her natural years while living with why they are there; knowing only that, in the end, God will execute them: the unrepentant are the walking dead, the ‘twice dead.’
——In the end, what better place to destroy all evil garbage than outside Jerusalem’s Dung Gate in the valley of judgment: where God roars out of Mt. Zion utterly purging evil by an all consuming fire. Then, God presents us with our ‘seventh gift’ of eternity in paradise: He restores earth as Eden: where we dwell forever in the presence and magnificent light and warmth of God and Christ! Praise the Lord! Come, Lord Jesus, Come! God’s logic is far above man’s and irrefutable by His complete Word.
God’s Seven Gifts to His Righteous People:
1. Spend 1000 years in heaven
2. Witness Satan’s Imprisonment
3. God opens His record books to us
4. Wipes away our tears and heals us
5. Wedding and wedding supper with Lord Jesus Christ
6. Earth’s complete purging of evil followed by total restoration
7. Eternity in earth’s paradise with our Father and His Son Jesus
Gabriel Shares God’s Grief:
——Do feel free to share the following poems, which were my way of sharing what happened the morning of 16 January 2005 and again on 09 December 2005; in the midst of that year I suffered a statistically fatal brain aneurysm. Satan desperately wants my mouth shut and my pen stilled, my computer down and websites to ban my work. Since the age of 6, Lucifer has made numerous attempts to slay me. He is a failure.
——Please, if you are lukewarm, read these words with fear and trembling then turn yourself wholly to God’s Way; for you cannot mix His with the world’s, else you will perish. I felt God’s unutterable grief on those mornings: it is OVERWHELMING, so deep, deeper than any grief humans ever feel over the loss of loved ones. I know, for I have buried 2 children, my parents and my only sibling.
——Imagine God’s grief over all that He created and loves. As He said, “I take no pleasure in destroying that which I created.” But, He also said, “There must be an end” to evil and the wicked. Please, do not be one of the reasons for God’s grief and tears when earth stops. READ, WEEP and INSTANTLY TURN AROUND.
I Lay Weeping

I was crying when suddenly awoken,
blood spilling from a heart so broken
as Gabriel repeated, “It’s far too late,
for each sin they refused to abate.
You must stand fast and hear all the angels hark
as Jesus weeps o’er earth in the dark.”
I lay weeping, not wanting to even move,
aware there’s nothing more I can do.
It is done; and, I’d said all that could be said,
while praying it saved them from twice dead.
Alas, they maligned God’s Word spoken so true,
left unsure I’d reached even a few.
I was crying when suddenly awoken,
bitter tears o’er Satan’s vile tokens;
though Gabriel assured me, “You are secure.
Rise and look away from Satan’s lures;
continue to stand fast and do as you’ve done:
for it will keep you strong in God’s Son.”
I weep still for their loss but now understand.
They can hear words only smooth and bland;
for it was written that they will not repent,
despite overt fury God has sent.
I comprehend: I must continue to speak,
for my strength is in God’s Truth I keep.
I lay weeping but would do as I was told
thus arose to a room very cold.
Words flowed through my mind as I turned up the heat
and swiped at tears; for I’d not be beat,
as there are those who haven’t read what I write.
God’s might is mine and I’m in His light.
For them I weep, yet shake their dust from my feet,
sorely aware of their soon defeat;
for each who deny, live and die Satan’s child;
lukewarm, unruly, utterly wild.
They live loosely, thus will die outside God’s Law;
despite having been warned of each flaw.
Again This Dawn

(Exodus c.20; Deuteronomy c.5)
Another glorious Friday You’ve made, Father,
this Sabbath eve; skies clear and sun warm.
I remembered Your words giving understanding
when again this dawn I woke in tears:
“Thou grieveth, like a mourning dove on the mountain,
for those left in cities filled with fears.
They refused to obey My Word; and, they should have
when ye spoke to prevent deadly harm.”
Oh, thank you so much, Lord, for sharing that wisdom,
and more, the one who sought to find me:
she whom I’ve just met though I have never seen her.
She said, “I spoke to God about you;
and, He said to me, ‘She is favored of the Lord.'”
Oh, how merciful to hear this, too;
a soothing balm healing each of my battle wounds;
for soon, Jesus lifts me up to Thee.
Father, this handmaiden is humbled by Your Love,
that You would choose this unworthy Eve,
then bless me with such great responsibility:
to reveal Your mysteries so true,
as well as to teach all Your Law, that some might live.
Oh, how I weep, for there are so few.
Alas, most turn away; others argue Your Word,
contrarily claiming to believe.
In all things, good and bad, I praise my loving God;
praise and give all the glory to You:
for I’m nothing without You, merely pitiful;
yet with You, I am all things and more.
Praise you, Father; Amen in Christ’s name: You are God!
You love me, just for keeping Your score!
And I know I love God, for His Law I obey.
It’s vile to break even one or two.
Stand Again ~ a prayer
©copyright 2008 Bonita M Quesinberry
Oh, Lord, I’m so tired, weak and weary;
Please, when will this nightmare end?
Oh, I know . . . I know, really, I do know:
Satan wants my will to bend,
yet You won’t allow more than I can bear.
I understand what that means
regarding pain striking body and mind,
nonetheless, I can bear all things.
Oh, please Father, give me the strength to stand
then stand again ’til he sings.
It is hard, Lord, so hard with no army;
no one with me in this fray,
his weapons increasing and I’m alone,
his soldiers meaner each day.
Please, Father, how much more must I endure?
How long have I to press on
to insure each lost child has been snatched up,
days Satan seems to have won?
Oh, please Father, give me the strength to stand
then stand again ’til I’ve won.
Oh, I know . . . I know, Lord, I really know.
I know You do have my back;
it’s just those times when I don’t feel You there,
left longing for what I lack
and so needing You to hold me tightly.
I need this nightmare to end . . .
I know, despite my tears, I understand:
make my will one he can’t bend.
Oh, please Father, give me the strength to stand
then stand again ’til he ends.
In Jesus precious Name, Amen
God Lit the Flame

Oh, yes, I have had all that riches can glean:
fine homes with designer décor,
impressive swimming pools for leisurely dreams;
Macy’s designer clothes and more,
matching shoes and bags and ornamental rings
draping me for each ball and chore.
Yeah, even costly cars with chromed shiny bling,
excess bells and whistles galore.
I held prestigious corporate positions;
“driven” many would say of me;
school many times, under certain conditions,
to climb ladder rungs at no fee.
And, I was prim and proper, by traditions,
with integrity all could see
and pure honesty, as God requisitions.
Faith meant no other way to be.
But, at what cost to me did riches implore?
I was loved; no loss to me there,
but it buffered me from the needy and poor.
I had no idea their wear and tear
and painful abuse, for they are much deplored.
As His Warrior, God put me there;
that injustice against them I should explore
and find ways to get their fair share.
I had lost all: my health, then compensation.
Know this: such a small price to pay
to feel their pain, grieve man’s selfish presentation:
dis-eases State doctors just flay;
HUD’s site bosses threaten accommodation;
but there’s nowhere to turn, no way,
just those mean streets: Satan’s fine institution.
Fear: old, homeless, hungry, no say.
Could I have prevented this? Nay, t’was God’s plan,
for He knew I’d speak loud and clear;
fight ev’ry wrong for we of His poorest clan:
He has chosen the poor as dear.
I tell our story and say, “Please do not ban;”
share it, for no man do I fear.

When I was young, “beautiful” was what they said,
though always I reddened at such praise;
it was pain inside I saw and a heart that bled,
while just upon my face they did gaze.
Still, I was known for integrity of steel
and honesty as pure as gold:
for I put on no mask that could be peeled,
no hidden agenda, my words bold.
By these two assets I worked and lived each day;
then the Devil played his wicked game
within Rule that determined my home and pay:
he would slander and shred my good name.
I had lost face, no longer considered true:
investigations and inspections,
transcripts and witnesses ’til my face was blue.
Win, lose, facts remain in reflections.
It’s now a face off between Satan and me,
yet appears as Federal and State.
I believe truth wins and will shout ’til they see:
God’s strength and I will speak in debate.
It’s not all about me, ev’ryone must know:
it’s abuse of the frail and old
by Federal and State, still unknown it goes.
Hear our cry! Demand change strong and bold.

My story is about abuse of seniors and the elderly by some of the highest State and Federal departments that provide our Social Security and Medical benefits as well as subsidized housing when, unexpectedly, we find ourselves in need of it. My story is common but remains uncommon for lack of reporting by concerned elders or their families and friends, when the elder is too afraid to speak on his or her own behalf. Help get this story out to everyone you know across this nation, even the media if possible, by reading a series entitled “Uncommon Common Abuse of Seniors & Elderly” found in my Word Press blog page for Vol. I and II. There will be two more segments to the story posted over the next two weeks.
