Revelation 18:4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues
With all the things that have been happening in America and around the world, we can't help but see that we are in the last days, and the antichrist is at the door.
I am not sure where each of you is, or if you hear anything but the media's version, but this country is in great trouble, not only this country but all over the world., and I do not believe there is going to be a fix, the reason being that God is brining about judgement for the sins of this country and the world, and we have not cried out to the Lord, as in Ezekiel 9.
I am more and more seeing that America is the Babylon that falls in Revelations. read Isaiah 48, Jeremiah 50 &51. Revelations 18.
Isaiah 52:11 Depart, depart, go out from there, Touch nothing unclean; Go out of the midst of her, purify yourselves, You who carry the vessels of the LORD.
Jeremiah 51:6 Flee from the midst of Babylon, And each of you save his life! Do not be destroyed in her punishment, For this is the LORD'S time of vengeance; He is going
Though this was talking about the Israel, we have been grafted in. they were God's chosen people and disobeyed time and time again. There is no difference we do the same things as they have done. God would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah for the judgment he brought on them for the same sins we are committing in this country.
Jeremiah 51:9 We applied healing to Babylon, but she was not healed; Forsake her and let us each go to his own country, For her judgment has reached to heaven And towers up to the very skies.
King James Bible
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,
When I began to write as the Lord spoke to me by His Spirit, I began posting them, and was to create the sites to post them, but I had no idea of His purpose or why He would choose me to speak to you for Him through the word.
A lot has changed, many of us have been going through the wilderness of trials and suffering, which is also to prepare us.
Those writings were to prepare us for what was to come, it was to prepare us in obedience to Him, and to come into his likeness.
Brothers and sisters,we only have a couple choices here, but we must leave Babylon one way or other, before the hammer of judgement comes down.
Not sure if you know what the Babylon system is but it is the world system, everything that is centered on self, money, fame, pride,corruption,the whole world system, but it also describes the false church, that presents a false Jesus, false teachings of men and denominations, churchianity, playing church. Not following Jesus Christ, Yeshushua and his ways but the ways of the world.
After not having a good church for a long time just years sitting at the Lord's feet, my present Pastor has left Babylon, he is now being taught of the Lord, and every service the Lord has his way, no more church playing, churchianity or titles, what a blessing his eyes are open.
Not letting Holy Spirit teach us as he said He would. We have every book written in our libraries, each has a different slant, even the doctrines though we all believe the basics every denomination has their own versions, and teachings.
This was never meant to happen, by the time the letters to the churches was written in Revelations the church had already begun to fall. God is not pleased.
So many Christians do not even pick up their bibles, so they are being deceived by new age and pre-new world religion teachings. They do not even know they are being deceived.
We are told we must have teachers to keep us from being deceived, but the Holy Spirit and the word of God does not deceive, man does. We are deceived when we do not study the word of God for ourselves and ask Him to teach us.
I believe we have already entered into the time of the antichrist, he just has not yet been revealed, but once as he is all hell will break lose. We can not know or give the time, but we can see it unfold before our eyes.
There is a remnant and elect that follow Christ alone, that have been preparing, suffering with Christ, have been getting Babylon out of them, by that I mean, are not part of the world system, and the Lord is revealing truth to them, even of His care and protection during the coming days. Humbling themselves, and are single minded toward the Lord. He says, I will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Me. In quietness and confidence is your strength, in returning and rest you are saved. Be still and KNOW the Lord.
They spend their lives seeking Him, worshipping him alone, obedient, sitting at his feet, able to hear His voce, My sheep hear My voice and so they are able to be directed as to what they are to do. They have had their eyes open to Revelations 12, and await the Lord to take them. Let the Lord teach you, erase what you have been previously taught and let the Lord open your eyes.
Others are finding places of refuge, storing up food and supplies to get ready for what is coming to America and the world, and for the Lord too come for them.
Some have said that the bible says to leave Babylon physically all together, and so this maybe true, but each person needs to be led of the Spirit, and it maybe for a period of time we will need to be where we are and then the Lord or angels will lead us to where we are to go, either here or with Him. I believe if we have been obedient in all things to the Lord he will direct and provide when we are in need just as he did those in Hebrews and Elijah who was fed by the ravens.
We have been called for such a time as this, we were born for these days, but we must be wise and serpents and harmless as doves.
I know one thing, the Lord has been admonishing me and I have been admonishing each of you to get serious, the more we are on the Internet the less time at His feet, the more we chat the less time we have time for preparing. and we will need to be very prepared.
I shared this at my church today, that we will need to begin to fast and put our bodies under, because what the government has planned for us will put us in a position where if we want to eat we will have to take the mark, this is going to start soon, before the anti-christ even appears, it is coming.
They are trying to pass a law to control what we eat it says that we cannot garden or save seeds because in truth they want us to eat genetically modified foods by Monsanto, a cause cancer.
The government has been placing Muslims in the government and using tax payer dollars to fund it and bring in Shari law, and to change God's laws.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked
Do do not be like the ostrich with his head in the sand, either you are of Christ or you are not, it will come to that. Choose today, who you will serve.
I am not into politics but want you to see we must choose who we are going to serve.
Its time to prepare spiritually, and if you are not in US, trouble is coming to you as well, so we all need to be in the center of the Lord's will.
Throw out all the other books, and teachings and sit down with the bible and ask the Holy spirit to teach you truth, seek him, Pray and worship him, make it as much as you possibly can.
Do not waste precious time, the hours is late. I do not exhort often, but this is a very serious message of warning and time we are living in.
I have been working on my End time messenger site the link is on Manna as are others. http://endtimemessenger.webs.com/ I have a page for Messiahs Branch Radio which keeps up with all that is going on in US and how it relates TO US.
I will being posing more material to help us through these coming days on that website, and spiritually on Manna For The Journey. http://www.freewebs.com/mannaforthejourney/

Where is the Refuge?
Michael Boldea Jr. - 7/17/08
Sanctuary: A place of refuge or asylum; the state of being protected or safeguarded from danger or hardship.
Refuge: That to which one turns for help when in desperation; a source of help, relief, or comfort in times of trouble.
For those who have long chosen to dismiss the prophetic with the wave of a hand, and a roll of the eyes, these can be some unnerving and disturbing times. How could one believe the words of impending judgment, of financial collapse, of natural disasters and of unprecedented tensions, when in the physical all they could see was prosperity, smooth sailing and good times ahead?
I believe that for some time now we have entered into the realm of fulfillment when it comes to the prophetic warnings concerning this land we love called America, and those wise among us, with the spiritual foresight to see beyond today, and believe the word of God, are not taken by surprise as one improbable event after another takes place.
Even those of the house of God who have only maintained what they considered to be a relationship with the Father simply because they believed if they faked it well enough, He would bless them abundantly are stunned, speechless, seeing the pieces of the last days puzzle coming together seamlessly as it was foretold in the Word. The writing is on the wall and though many see it as Belshazzar saw it, due to their deeply held doctrine of never seeing hardship or trouble, of being caught away at the first signs of adversity, they are somehow able to justify indifference toward a loving God, and refuse to prepare themselves for what is about to unfold. ‘Why should we worry about tomorrow, if we won’t be here to see it?’ This is the deadpan answer I have received so often when attempting to teach on end time prophecy and on end time events. ‘It’s all well and good brother, but at best this is an intellectual exercise. We’ll all be in heaven, and have a front row seat watching the times of trouble unfold on the earth. It is interesting, you’ve put allot of thought into this, but in the end quite pointless.’
Times are changing, life is becoming increasingly difficult, prophecy is being fulfilled, and those who refuse to see the truth of the Gospel continue to keep one eye firmly fixed on the heavens, thinking to themselves, ‘any minute now, He’s got to show up in the clouds any minute now.’
This article is not for such people. Even when one can prove Biblically that we will be here far longer than they had previously thought, they still refuse to believe it, dragging out the old tired line, ‘that’s the way you choose to interpret it brother, I see it different.’ It is not about interpreting the Word, it is about reading and receiving it as is, without allowing our personal feelings or emotions to cloud the truth of Gospel.
Matthew 24:29-31, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then, the sign of the Son of man will appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
In the context of this passage, knowing that Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Savior of mankind spoke them, I would like to broach the subject of sanctuary, or refuge during these times. As of late I have been asked by a growing number of brothers and sisters, what it is that they should do, and where it is that they should go, knowing the season that approaches. I will begin by saying that there is no easy answer. What may be God’s perfect will for me, and what may be my place of safety, may not be thus for my brothers or my father. We must acknowledge the fact that our faith is not collective, and thereby the place of refuge is not a singular geographical location, where all believers will congregate eventually.
For the past decade or so, men have been popping up throughout this land, claiming to know the place of refuge for all of Christendom, that one specific location wherein God’s children will be protected and spared. These locations change of course, from one individual to another ranging from Belize, to Chile, to Argentina, to the Ural Mountains, and some easily swayed souls who were not grounded in the Word packed up and moved away without a second thought. If anyone reading this article today is considering packing up and moving out based on another man’s advice, please, please reconsider. If God told him to move to Belize, then by all means brother, have a safe flight, and look out for the spiders. The fact that God told one individual does not mean it is a blanket statement for the entire body of Christ. When it comes to something such as this, God will speak to each of His children individually, and yes, some will be told to leave, but most will be told to stay, that they may be a testimony of God’s ability to protect even in the eye of the storm.
Our place of sanctuary is not a geographical location. Our place of sanctuary is in the will of God, under the shadow of His wing. If we have not grown and matured in God, if we have not learned to trust Him implicitly in every area of our lives, then it will not matter where we go geographically speaking. When someone leaves a nation out of fear for what is coming, and not due to the fact that God told him or her to do so, they have removed themselves from under the covering of God’s protection.
Amos 5:4, “For thus says the Lord of the house of Israel: ‘seek Me and live.” Yes, I have been praying and petitioning God to allow me to move back to my homeland because it is the desire of my heart, yet here I will stand until He tells me to go. If He never tells me to go, then here I will be for I know that here is the only place where I will find myself in His perfect will and thereby be spared the judgments that are ready to be poured out upon the ungodly.
Psalm 33:13-21, “The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His habitation He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. No king is saved by the multitude of an army; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him because we have trusted in His holy name.”
Oh that we would understand this sacred passage and know where our refuge and our sanctuary truly are. Oh that we would open our eyes to the reality that our strength, our storehouses, our plans and notions of what will keep us safe are worthless. Oh that we would see the truth of God’s word and know that those who fear Him, and hope in His mercy will be delivered from death and kept alive in famine.
Dear friend, if God tells you to go, then by all means go. However, if God has not spoken, do not make the mistake of presuming to know the mind of God, do not make the mistake of walking out of His perfect will thinking that you know better than He. If I can encourage you with anything, it is with the reassurance that God is able to protect both you and your family, no matter what may come.
The judgment of God is reserved for the ungodly, just as the plagues were reserved for Egypt. In the midst of Egypt there was a land called Goshen, where the children of Israel happened to be. They had not been told to go anywhere; they were protected exactly where they were. While the plagues of God rained down upon the land of Egypt, Goshen was at peace, for the children of God dwelt there.
‘But brother Mike, what about the scripture that tells us to come out of her My people?’ My answer to this, is how can you go when you were not sent? It is easier to presume a physical exodus from this land, than search our hearts to see if we have come out of Babylon spiritually. There are countless souls who are still tethered spiritually to the spirit of Babylon, and God in His infinite wisdom is admonishing His people to come out of her, while they may.
Proverbs 14:26-27, “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to avoid the snares of death.”
It is not in South America, it is not in the Congo, it is not in Paraguay that the children of God will have a place of refuge it is in the fear of the Lord. If we are obedient children, He will guide and protect us like a loving Father. If the fear of the Lord is ever present in our hearts, and as such we remove ourselves from the world, and we learn to hate evil, for the fear of the Lord is to hate evil, then we have strong confidence, for the fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, and causes us to avoid the snares of death.
No, the judgment that is about to descend, not only upon this nation but upon the world is not intended for the children of God, for just as Israel was spared in Goshen, so too will we have a refuge, a safe haven, and a sanctuary in God. The persecution that will follow however, well that is an article for another time.
Cities of Refuge
(From Hidden Manna by David Eells)
In the coming wilderness tribulation those who fear the Lord will have places of refuge. (Pr.14:26) In the fear of Jehovah is strong confidence; And his children shall have a place of refuge. The most important place of refuge is to “abide in the secret place of the Most High” where the psalmist says “He is my refuge” (Ps.91:1,2). This of course is to abide in Christ, the only true refuge. From among these people will be those who inhabit cities of refuge. I wouldn’t call these "cities" in modern day terms, for most, if not all of them, will be very primitive. Any more than this in the seven years of famine would invite the beast people to come and join or come and plunder. Some are building their plush homes and prosperous hideaways in their plans to wait out the wilderness. However, I suspect this does not fulfill the type of Israel in the sparse wilderness seeing their needs met by God. Steve and Doris Spanios shared on our broadcast how that an angel took her to a plush refuge where there were homes and everything was green and pretty. She was warned not to go there for it was a place of antichrist. She was then taken to one of the real camps where she saw her shanty of tin and wood thrown together. She was there cooking, washing clothes and taking care of the women and children. She said there were always vegetables in the garden -- enough for them to pick and eat every day since they were replenished constantly. There was a well with a hand pump and it always had water. She was told never to leave the camp and the forest around the camp. However, two men left and returned, probably to preach the gospel and bring others drawn to the refuge. These represent the corporate two witnesses. She said they studied the Bible every day and the leaders were these two men, who gave others responsibilities for teaching, praying and healing. Jesus sent out a corporate body of two witnesses who ordained elders to train the Church. In another vision, a man who appeared to be dressed like Jesus was present, and she and Steve thought He must be representative of the man-child.
We are very close to the beginning of the tribulation. I believe that before the middle of the tribulation when the mark is imposed many will have escaped to places of refuge like this. Some will be there before to prepare and some will find their way there afterwards. Do not be afraid if God does not call you to one of these cities but abide in Christ, the great city of refuge.
A brother I have known for several years and is a part of our larger broadcast fellowship, bought some property during this time. Later he told me that he had seen a vision of campers, motor homes, and RVs in the area. Recently he got satellite photos of this property and what he saw shocked him and then us. He saw a man-child with a crown upon his head being birthed out of a mountain. Then he saw a lamb’s head. Then I saw a dragon which had the lambs head in its mouth, which makes sense since he devoured Jesus almost 2000 years ago. Others saw a lion, Jesus, a pyramid, which is the timeline of the end-times. Then I went to sleep one night and the Lord spoke to me that the woman who brought forth the man-child was there too and when I got up I saw her. Her picture was in the mountain and she was birthing the man-child. None of this is hard to see once one sees it. I wrote this brother, “The whole story of the end-time is there in the satellite picture which can be seen best when the sun is in an exact position. It does not exist on the ground except as trees and rocks, which reflect the Sun (pun intended) to show “signs in the earth beneath” (Acts 2:19). The land is a city of refuge for the man-child to protect and educate the Woman church of Rev.12 in the wilderness. For the manslayer to take refuge from the avenger of the death. … The man-child is hidden from the dragon behind his head. … I believe that this revelation is not to be widely known except to the elect who will be told to go there by the angels before the complete devastation…”
Disciples of Christ who are living the crucified life will escape. One method God will use is to protect a few little cities from the destroyer as Goshen was protected when Egypt was destroyed. Also cities of refuge were provided throughout Israel to protect the manslayer who killed someone “unwittingly.” Spiritually this means they did not kill him by their own knowledge or wisdom. (Num 35:11) then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer that killeth any person unwittingly may flee thither. (12) And the cities shall be unto you for refuge from the avenger, that the manslayer die not…. A disciple of Christ is one who by the wit of Christ and not his own is a manslayer by putting to death his old man. The avenger of blood, the wicked beast people, are relatives and friends of the old man. They are both beasts, born of flesh. The avengers of this world hate and seek to put to death those who have put to death self. Satan and his army are coming to avenge the blood of the old man like Pharaoh's army at the Red Sea. Spiritually speaking, if you are caught outside the city of refuge, whether of Christ or a physical city, the avenger of blood may put you to death. (26) But if the manslayer shall at any time go beyond the border of his city of refuge, whither he fleeth, (27) and the avenger of blood find him without the border of his city of refuge, and the avenger of blood slay the manslayer; he shall not be guilty of blood, (28) because he should have remained in his city of refuge until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the manslayer shall return into the land of his possession. Notice that after the death of the high priest, who is Christ, has been fully manifested in our life we may go where God wills and be safe for there is no curse upon us. (1Cor.2:2) For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. (Phl.3:10) that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed unto his death.
The wicked are also manslayers for they have put to death their spiritual man and the people of God. They are guilty and they will die for they did it wittingly by following their own wisdom. They also are outside the city of refuge, Jesus Christ. In this case God himself is the avenger. (Rom.12:19) Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath [of God]: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. (Ex.11:4) And Moses said, Thus saith Jehovah, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: (5) and all the first-born in the land of Egypt shall die… The first-born is the flesh and the born-again man is the spiritual man.
