On Fasting–Conversations with the Seer

The Seer was speaking unto us about fasting.

“Right now you are basking in the light of Christ’s words flowing through the one who He has sent to call out and instruct a people for His name. And that is well and good and is as it should be.  As Christ said unto His followers, The time will come when I will be taken from your midst; then you shall fast.”

“Why didn’t His disciples fast like John the Baptist and his disciples?” one of the brothers asked.

The Seer replied, “That is a very good question. The answer is instructive as to why fasting is even on God’s docket at all.  As long as the Master Teacher is personally with you, you do not feel a need to fast, Christ was saying.  But when He is gone and no longer is physically there to hand feed you the milk and meat of the Word, then the need to fast will become apparent.  This should reveal to us how God uses fasting in our lives. For fasting is reserved for that time that will come for the elect.”

“What time are you talking about?” I asked.

“There is coming a time in all of your lives in God when I will no longer be here with you, serving as your teacher and guide. There is coming a time when you all sitting here will be dispersed to the four winds for one reason or another, and you will look out the window at the leafless trees and the brown grass and the grey sky, and you will remember this day when I told you about fasting.

“For, you see, fasting is not necessary in God’s plan when His teachings are fed to you by another. It is when you are alone and hungry for God’s truth, and you turn around and finally realize that there is no other human being to take your hand and comfort you and feed you in your lonely hunger. You realize that you will have to seek the Spirit within you for sustenance found only in the spiritual bread of truth. Then you will fast, successfully and meaningfully fast, and not before.”

“We fasted a very long fast two months ago,” another brother said.

“Yes, you all did, and God is not forgetful and appreciates your intent to join me in the fasting I must undertake. But the real reason to fast hinges on doing it not as just the thing to do. But rather we are to fast for specific reasons. The prophet Isaiah expounded on it in the 58th chapter where the Spirit through him tells his readers and listeners that the fast that God has ordained is one to accomplish His purposes in the earth. And that includes helping to deliver His people from the clutches of the evil world system that still has them in bondage. This is the only food that will sustain His sons and daughters. Being a part of His magnificent plan to ‘loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke.’”

“Who are the oppressed that need to go free?” someone asked.

“The fast that God has chosen is to do these things. Like Daniel in the ninth chapter when he prayed ‘with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.’ He was confessing the sins of God’s people, how they had failed Him, and how they had fallen into great bondage under the heavy yoke of the Babylonians and were in slavery to them, carried down into Babylonia, and how they had lost their homes and were completely desolate. Read all of that chapter and you will see Isaiah 58 in it.

“Daniel was laying it all out for God’s sake. Nothing was in it for himself. He finally could only ask God for His mercy to come for one reason: ‘for thine own sake and for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.’  Do you see? Daniel fasted and prayed, yes, for the people, but the people did not earn or deserved to be delivered and saved. Daniel honored his Creator God and asked God to deliver them for God’s own sake! That is the kind of heart that God wants in his sons and daughters! A heart that loves Him!

“And that is the kind of fast that Yahweh has chosen for us His sons. We should fast with His will in mind, and His will is His plan and purpose to deliver those in bondage. And this is what should be in our minds, to have the mind of Christ, which was, Not my will but thine be done, Father.

“It is this type of supplication that God will hear. This is the coming together of love of God and love of your neighbor. We are loving God when we pray and fast for our people–that they would be delivered from the slavery to sin and sinning. That they would be free from this devilish economic system based on debt, ruled by the rich men and bankers. That they would be delivered from hopelessness and despair and superstition and pervasive darkness.

“For make no mistake. The current inhabitants of the world are in the chains of darkness of the god of this world. They are enslaved in a faithless sunken pool of quicksand that is slowly taking them under. Their institutions have failed them and have even furthered their demise.  Those dark days are here now. For BABYLON THE GREAT, the world system, has the people in its clutches, and it is strangling them.

“And you young men, perhaps many years hence, will peer out your window at some grey horizon, and you will remember these words about fasting.  And the meaning of it will dawn upon you.  And you will bring that burden for those lost in darkness into your spirit, and you will wish you had your teacher there again to help you to know just what to do next.

“At that time, remember that your teacher is still  there with you. For He is the same Spirit that has taught you through me.  He is the Comforter, the Holy Spirit within your very heart, and He will bring all things back to your remembrance. Even to the point that you will no longer need a man to teach you, for you will have the Spirit of truth to teach you and guide you and help you.   Then you shall fast, even as Christ said we all would. And then you will pray for the oppressed as Daniel did.

“And to confirm that what happened to Daniel flies on down through the centuries and has relevance for us today, consider this.  At the end of  Daniel’s fasting and prayer and supplication, Gabriel, the arch-angel appeared to him and expounded many secrets of the coming of the kingdom of God to this earth, even foreseeing the crucifixion of Christ and the coming of Christ’s counterfeit, the Anti-Christ, the man of sin, which is for our day.”     KWH

“The Day of the LORD” (YAHWEH)–The Fall of Mystery, Babylon the Great

Endtime Prophecy on Mystery, Babylon the Great

The “day of the LORD” (Yahweh) is a day not to wish for.  It brings desolation, cosmic collisions with the earth, utter upheaval and destruction of man’s status quo.  Suffering, “pangs and sorrows…pain” fills the faces of mankind.  It is “cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it” (Isaiah 13: 1-10).

Many will stop here and claim that this prophecy written in 713 B.C. was fulfilled when the Babylonian Kingdom would fall many years later.  It was on one level, but the prophecy has a deeper, more far reaching force that takes those ominous words and thrusts them into our modern day scene.  These inspired words of Yahweh through the prophet Isaiah take on a universal worldwide scope when God warns in the very next breath: “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity…” (v. 11).

God goes cosmic in vision and scope while at the same time outlining the demise of  the ancient Babylonian Empire.

For the Babylon of old is a symbol of the one world system of false religion, government, and education.  The prophet Daniel in chapter 2 speaks of the Babylonian Empire as the head of gold of a much larger all-encompassing beast image.  All Bible scholars concede that the great image that Nebuchadnezzar dreamed was a glimpse into the future of four great world Gentile governments.  These would rule the earth in successive waves from c. 600 B.C. to our present day.

Nebuchadnezzar forgot the dream, much less the interpretation.  Contained in the dream was a secret from the Almighty.  “Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision.  Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven” (v. 19).  Daniel proclaimed before the king that God “reveals the deep and secret things: He knows what is in the darkness…” (v. 22).  Daniel goes on to say that the wise men of Babylon cannot reveal the secret of the dream, “but there is a God in heaven that reveals secrets, and makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days” (v. 28).

The God in heaven “reveals secrets.”  And what are these secrets?  The Spirit in Daniel says it another way in the very next breath.  Revealing secrets is the same as making known now what will happen in the future– “in the latter days,” the time of the end.  The time when the “day of the LORD (Yahweh)” comes.  The time when God “will punish the world for their evil.”  That is the time we are living in.

This passage in Daniel is profound and rich with meaning for us.  The religious wise men of ancient Babylon, of the world system of their day, could not reveal the secret to the king.  They prided themselves as fortune tellers and soothsayers predicting future events, but they could not really see into the future to our dayThey were “blind, leaders of the blind,” not knowing the extent of their parts in the false worship system.  The secret of what will happen in our latter day era was not revealed to them, for God withheld it from them.  They did not know that the secret of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream is an astounding prophecy that takes us to the very latter days of end time happenings.

The dream, of course, was that of a “great image…whose brightness was excellent…and the form was terrible” (2: 31).  First, it was an image.  It was not the real deal.  The people were in awe of it, for it was bright and excellent.  It had a head of gold, breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, and legs of iron with feet of both iron and clay.  Then he saw a stone from heaven crash into the feet of the image and destroy it.  And the stone “became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

Daniel by God’s Spirit interprets the image as four world empires, beginning with Babylon.  It is universally recognized that they are Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece, and Rome.  The last kingdom that smashed them down is the kingdom of God, and “it shall stand forever” (v. 44).

Daniel told the king of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar, “You are this head of gold.”  The head of any body contains the brain, the thoughts, which dictates the actions of that body.  The thoughts of the head resonate on down through the ensuing kingdoms.  The Babylonian religions were the Eastern Mystery Religions that would permeate the West, finally lodging securely in Rome [for much more see The Two Babylons by Hislop here: http://www.biblebelievers.com/babylon/ ].  These mystery religions flourished so much that they became the very source of papal catholic worship to this day.

This is why the apostle John saw in Revelation that the world religious system at the time of the end would be called an evil woman, “a great whore that sits upon many waters: with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication…”  And the woman sat on “a scarlet colored beast…and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17: 5).  “An the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth” (v. 18).  And that city is Rome.  And those teachings out of Rome have come down to modern man through the mother Catholic church and her protestant daughters.  I does say that Babylon the Great is the mother of harlots and abominations.

The Kingdom of Heaven Versus Man’s One World Government

At this time in history, we all need some good news.  So here it is.  The Kingdom of Heaven is coming to this earth–literally.  Not “floating around heaven all day.”  Not apple pie in the sky bye and bye.   No, Christ is literally coming back to this earth to bring in a new government to earth.

The new government coming is a kingdom, which is a form of government whereby one of royal lineage rules completely and with full authority.  A kingdom then whose roots have a celestial origin would be considered a “kingdom of heaven,” or a kingdom from heaven.

Now the sovereign ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven is the King and Creator of this universe.  His name has come down to English speakers as Jesus.  But His  name since before the beginning of time, His name in the original spoken language of heaven, is Yahshua.

The meaning of His name proclaims our very ticket into citizenship in His kingdom.  Yah (Yahweh, the self-existent One) Shua (Is the Savior).  His is a kingdom/government which, according to the scriptures of truth, will break and smash into pieces all the other governments of this world.

The prophet Daniel spoke about this very event.  He was interpreting a forgotten dream that greatly troubled the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar.    Daniel told him his dream and interpreted it, giving glory to God as the One who reveals secrets.

The Dream

Daniel told him, You saw a great image whose “head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, his legs of iron and part of clay.”  Then you saw “a stone…cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces…and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” (Daniel 2: 28-37).

The Interpretation

He went on to interpret his dream.  The different parts of the image were different world empires.  The head of gold was Nebuchadnezzar.   “And after thee, shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass…and a fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron “and shall break in pieces and subdue all things” (2: 38-40).

Here we see that Nebchadnezzar’s image in his dream was a vision of world empires, destined to rule the earth.  Scholars have universally said these four to be Babylonian, Media-Persia, Greece, and Rome.

Daniel continues the interpretation: “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed.”  It will be an everlasting government.  “It shall not be left to other people.”  All of man’s kingdoms have an end when other people take their lands, riches, and buildings for their own–but not this heavenly kingdom.  This is the one kingdom that will never be vanquished.  “It shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms.”  This is the stone kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven, that wipes out man’s kingdoms once and for all.  And “it shall stand forever” (2: 44).  The Kingdom of Heaven is an everlasting government that shall be ruled and reigned over by the King Himself, Jesus (Yahshua) of Nazareth.  This is the gospel, the good news for us the inhabitants of the earth!

And what was the Babylonian king’s reaction to this seemingly negative and rash interpretation by this foreigner Daniel in the court of the king?  Instead of killing Daniel, the king “fell upon his face, and worshiped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him,” and praised Daniel’s God.  He then made Daniel a “great man” and “ruler over the whole province of Babylon.”  He made him a viceroy, the chief governor of the kingdom.  So let us not be afraid what the enemy shall do unto us when we stand for the Kingdom of Heaven.

A Glimpse into the Future

Nebuchadnezzar was allowed to look down through 26 centuries to the time of the end, when a terrible world system with the mind of that “head of gold” still would be guiding the beastly image of world governance.

The image is one–one world governmental system.  The old Babylonian religion came to Rome on down to this very day.  Couple that with the political fascist fist of Rome which has now permeated the thoughts of the world’s ruling elite.  The last revival  of the old Roman Empire is the European Union, which is a precursor to a One World Union, presided over by the offspring of the old world kings and princes. (But because Christ’s kingdom “is not of this world,” His servants will not fight with man made weapons.  They will fight with the “sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph 6: 17).

And it is in the days of this last revival that the stone kingdom will come crashing down on the present world system, paving the way for the King and his heavenly kingdom to permeate the earth forever.  We are living in the time frame when He will come back.  That is the gospel, the good news.

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT–Explained

“MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT” is referred to as the woman, which is a symbol of a false religious system.  This mother church system has an identifier in the scriptures.  This is a tag that tells us about her.  She has a “name written in her forehead.”  Names in scripture tell what the person or thing is—what its roots are, what its core values are.  A name in scripture tells us its origin, its reason to be, and its destiny.  This name written in her forehead means that her mind is full of what her name implies.  Her heart and mind is full of what her name means. And her name was “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17:5).  Her name is given all in capital letters to signify its great importance to us.

First, this church’s name is a “MYSTERY.”  The masses who wonder after the world system are in the dark.  The origin of the political and religious systems of the earth is a mystery to them.  A mystery is a “who done it?”  The passive masses are in the dark about the characters and their roles in the drama happening on the world stage.

The second part of her name is “BABYLON THE GREAT.”  This term is a mystery also.  The first thing that comes to mind is the ancient city of Babylon, the capital of the Babylonian Empire in what is today Iraq.  This great city, described by the Greek historian Herodotus, was so grand in its day that its Hanging Gardens was known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

But what’s the old city of Babylon’s connection to the name of the woman riding the beast in Revelation 17:5? Why is this old city’s name a part of the name of the false religious system that persecutes the true followers in the last days?

The answer lies in the fact that the religious system of the ancient city of Babylon has passed itself on down through the centuries to our day.  History teaches us that the Near East’s fertile crescent spawned a mystery religion with its birthplace in Babylon.  It was there that Nimrod became prominent.  He was the son of Cush, the grandson of Ham, and the great grandson of Noah.  “He began to be a mighty one in the earth.  “He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH.  And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel {Gr. Babylon}” (Genesis 10: 8-10).  This religion was passed on down to pagan Rome.  {Even the Catholic Bible admits in a footnote on Rev. 17: 5 that “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT” is pagan Rome!  Read it here http://www.newadvent.org/bible/rev017.htm }

And one of these ancient pagan traditions that not only has survived, but has thrived today is Christmas.  People all over the world celebrate this holiday, not knowing of its tainted origin and of its pagan roots.

This brings us to the whorish woman’s name: “MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”  This false church is a mother church.  Who did she give birth to?  The law of harvest states, Each seed bears its own kind.  Those organizations who practice and adhere to the mother’s doctrines and traditions are by nature her offspring—daughters of the mother church. And one of pagan Babylon’s strongest traditions is the winter solstice season’s Saturnalia/Christmas.  And yet, the whole world wonders after it, believing that it is the greatest time of year, not know at what they marvel.

Yet I do not condemn anyone who celebrates it.  I once did, too.  But I wanted the truth at all costs, and when this part of the truth came, I had to make a stand to forego the holiday.  It makes waves in the family, for they will not understand at first.  All my kids are grown now, and they do understand the stand I made.  And all those who are pressing “on for the high calling” of sonship and daughtership of God–they will make a stand for truth.  The princes and princesses of God will realize that the truth is Him.  He, the Son of God is the Truth. That realization will put every thing else into perspective.    Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“Christmas Unwrapped” and “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT”

“Christmas Un-wrapped—The History of Christmas” is quite a documentary produced by The History Channel.  Harry Smith narrates as it exposes the historical roots of how this holiday came to be.  Its origins are pagan and go back thousands of years to the festivals of the winter solstice, Rome’s Saturnalia, Mithras the sun god’s birthday, and the Nordics’ Yule time (you can see it here on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5T5ibb2E9I ).

I am astounded as I look out over the earth on this time of year and see people of every race, nationality and gender, embracing and reveling in this winter holiday season.I don’t condemn anyone for doing so; I’m just amazed to see people caught up into a spiritual vortex with seemingly no power to refuse.They are not just lured to the stores to buy anymore; they are told that if you don’t go and spend money, even money that you don’t really have, you are going to contribute to the downfall of our economy.It is not even subtle anymore.

It is like in Revelation when “the whole world wondered after the beast.” The people are caught up into something with a pull they can’t rationally fight.I see people practicing traditions handed down to them from ancestors who had no idea where it all came from.  They follow on not knowing why, and frankly, not caring why.

Like you, I am interested in the Time of the End as described in the book of Revelation.  How will the masses be?  How will they act during this time?  What type of world system will be in power?  And I find that it is called a “beast with seven heads and ten horns” and has a woman riding it.  And this woman is a symbol of a religious system, a church system.

And this church “was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand” (Rev. 17:4). This shows a system that is rich and luxurious.  This is not a church system that the ancient Hebrew prophets adhered to—the ones who were of the true faith, who “wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth” (Hebrews 11: 37-38).  No, the true prophets of God did not array themselves like this religious system.

In fact, this false religious system has in the scriptures an identifier, a tag that tells us about her.  She has a “name written in her forehead.”  Names in scripture tell what the person or thing is—what its roots are, what its core values are.  A name in scripture tells us its origin, its reason to be, and its destiny.  This name written in her forehead means that her mind is full of what her name implies.  Her heart and mind is full of what her name means.  And her name was “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17:5).  Her name is given all in capital letters to signify its great importance to us.

And this church has blessed this holiday that falls on the winter solstice, that is built upon a flimsy, secular, and pagan foundation.  “If the root be holy, so are the branches” (Romans 11: 16).  What if the root be unholy?  So are the branches?  If we are a branch of the latter or are partaking of an unholy branch, are we not a partaker of the tainted spiritual fruit?

We, who are the called to be His princes and princesses of His soon-coming kingdom must examine ourselves in this light, for we are admonished to “come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins” (Rev. 18: 4).  We are rather to be “partakers of the divine nature” (II Peter 1: 4).    Kenneth Wayne Hancock
