Fist of the Father: The Reconciliation of Curses 2023

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet,
and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth.
The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
When he opened the Abyss,
smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace.
The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
Apocalypse 9:1-2 (NIV) ✝

Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
Apocalypse 9:3-4 (ESV) ✝

They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
Apocalypse 9:5-6 (NIV) ✝

The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth.
Apocalypse 9:7-8 (NIV) ✝

They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
Apocalypse 9:9-10 (NIV) ✝
They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
Apocalypse 9:11 (NIV) ✝

The Shaft of the Abyss

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
Apocalypse 20:1-3 (NIV) ✝

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.

The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done.

Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.

This is the second death.”

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.

Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.

The Shaft of the Abyss

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
Apocalypse 20:1-3 (NIV) ✝

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
Apocalypse 20:11-15 (ESV) ✝

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
Apocalypse 21:5-8 (NIV) ✝

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
Apocalypse 22:12-16 (NIV) ✝

He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Apocalypse 22:20-21 (NIV) ✝
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”
Apocalypse 16:1 (NIV) ✝

Wormwood: The Shaft of the Abyss

Wormwood: The Cult of Belial and the Antichrist

Members of the cult of Belial go out of their way to disrespect & gaslight our country. They despise the diversity of souls that makes us 'one nation under God', because when we souls are united as one, we are invincible. That's why they hate diversity. 2 Corinthians 6:15 (NLT)

The diversity of souls in our military is what makes our nation a superpower. The genius of that diversity lies with each soul who voluntarily answers the silent call to selflessly serve one nation under God. Selfish & disloyal people are unfit to serve.

The Holy Spirit is the glue that unifies all souls under God. It is the conduit to God that is available to anyone who recognizes the supremacy of one's soul over one's flesh. Love of one's flesh is not enough because "those controlled by the flesh cannot please God." Romans 8:8 (BSB)

'Wokeness' in the military is a convenient lie used by the Antichrist to slander the selfless souls who serve our country with honor. It's also an insult to the Holy Spirit, who knows the trials & tribulations of every Marine, Soldier, Sailor, Guardsman & Airman. James 4:7 (ESV)

The term 'wokeness' is based on nothing real. It is a poor attempt to use a lie to denigrate the phenomenon which allows selfless souls to endure countless trials & tribulations. That phenomenon is the Holy Spirit found within the bodies of all who serve. 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)

The Cult of Belial & the Antichrist both contain unrepentant sinners such as charlatans, grifters, slanderers & backstabbers. Only the Antichrist use the terms 'woke' & 'wokeness' to disparage human beings who live in the Spirit. That's why 'anti-woke' = Antichrist. 1 John 2:18 (NIV)
And the demons kept begging Jesus
not to order them to go into the Abyss.

Wormwood: The Cult of Belial

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness?
Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 (BSB)

If someone claims, “I know God,”
but doesn’t obey God’s commandments,
that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.
1 John 2:4 (NLT) ✝ Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Exodus 20:16 (KJV) ✝

Those who mock the poor insult their Maker;
those who rejoice at the misfortune of others will be punished.
Proverbs 17:5 (NLT) ✝
Many will follow in their depravity, and because of them
the way of truth will be defamed.
2 Peter 2:2 (BSB) ✝

There is a grievous evil I have seen under the sun:
wealth hoarded to the harm of its owner.
Ecclesiastes 5:13 (BSB) ✝ And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world
but lose your own soul?
Is anything worth more than your soul?
Matthew 16:26 (NLT) ✝

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Proverbs 16:18 (NIV) ✝ Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done.
They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight.
They are a disgrace and a stain among you.
They delight in deception even as they eat with you
in your fellowship meals.
2 Peter 2:13 (NLT) ✝
