I believe God has revealed three keys to unlocking one of the greatest mysteries of the ages, exposing the identity and schemes of Mystery Babylon.
For thousands of years, God has hidden the meaning of end time prophecies by cloaking them in symbolism because previous generations didn’t need to know since they weren’t going to see the fulfillment, but God has promised to unseal these mysteries to the generation living at the time of the end, the generation that would see the return of the Lord. (Proverbs 25:20) I believe we are that generation for the reasons documented in Part 2 of my book, Remnant.
Even so, these mysteries were revealed to a remnant in previous generations, but they weren’t allowed to share them with anyone else because it wasn’t time. For example, the angel Gabriel revealed many of these mysteries to Daniel, but then he instructed Daniel, “Shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:4)
Just as Gabriel promised, God is now unsealing these mysteries to equip His people to walk in great wisdom so we can fulfill His plans, causing us to shine like lights, like the brightness of the firmament, like the stars shining forever and ever, drawing multitudes to the light, including many sons and daughters returning from afar when they see the glory of God upon us. (Isaiah 60:2-4, Daniel 12:3) This great wisdom coming from heaven will produce the atmosphere of heaven and the blessings of heaven in the lives of those who are willing to receive it, even in times of great turmoil in the world. (Exodus 12:35-36, Psalm 23:4-6, Proverbs 13:22, 2 Kings 6:24-7:20, Isaiah 45:3, Isaiah 60:4-5, Haggai 2:6-9, Matthew 6:10, Mark 10:29-30, Revelation 12:14)
This outpouring of wisdom was confirmed by the following prophetic words shared by the late prophet Bob Jones:
“Wisdom is on her way. I believe it has started. In this one harvest, He is talking about over one billion youth is getting ready to come in. They will only come in where wisdom dwells. Wisdom is looking for a place to move in down here now, and she is coming down here to take over the Father’s business, and where wisdom is reigning over the Father’s business, you are talking big numbers. And we are also talking about going worldwide.
I believe there is a remnant that is coming forth. I don’t believe they are very mature yet. But they are going to change. The change is taking place. I am telling you, wisdom has come to kiss her children and to justify them. I would put it this way, you haven’t seen anything yet.” (Source: 2012 Shepherd’s Rod)
Three Keys to Wisdom:
Back in 2016, I was seeking God for wisdom as He has invited us to do in this scripture:
1 My son, if you will receive my words and treasure my commandments within you,
2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding;
3 For if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will discern the fear of Yahweh and discover the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:1-5)
After many days asking, I received the following dream on March 18 2016. A person whom I could not see gave me three keys, which I knew were the keys to wisdom and understanding. The first key was the knowledge of the Word of God. The second was knowledge of the power of the Holy Spirit. The third key was the knowledge of practical, predictable patterns.
As He handed them to me one at a time, I was amazed by the depth of insights contained within each key, like we could learn forever and still have much more still to learn. It reminded me of this verse, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways.” (Romans 11:33) Unfortunately, when I woke up, I could not recall any of those great insights, just that each contained great depths.
I also understood they were given to me in order of their priority and importance, so they are not all on the same level. Since the knowledge of the written word of God was the first key, it is the most important. Next comes knowledge of the power of the Holy Spirit, which we must have to understand how He operates in our life. I was not surprised by either of those keys because their importance has been emphasized in many messages I’ve heard, but I was surprised by the third one. Even though it was a lower priority than the first two, I was surprised it was even mentioned in the top three because I’ve never heard anything about it in any church meetings. Yet, the following scriptures confirm it:
9 That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10)
1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
Based on these scriptures, everything that happens under heaven happens at a set time, an appointed time, the assigned season when it is supposed to happen, just as predictable as sunrise and sunset and the changes of seasons in fall, winter, spring, and summer. (Amplified from Hebrew word zeman in verse 3:1) Since these patterns include everything, it is not limited to world events like wars, recessions, depressions, plagues, etc, but also includes everything in our personal life, such as the time we are born, the time when we die, and everything in between. Even our physical bodies follow predictable patterns of sleeping and waking, eating, digesting, breathing, growing, aging and dying.
Even though this key has been neglected, I believe God is now calling our attention to it because it is more important than ever before that we properly understand what’s happening in the world today and what’s coming in the future. He does not want us to be caught by surprise, but to be His beacons of light so we can help lead others to Him. A time of unprecedented trouble is coming upon the world, putting great pressure on people, so they will be seeking answers. So, God is now equipping us with wisdom and understanding.
The future is revealed by the patterns of the past because the cycles keep repeating. Although this key has been neglected by the Church, it’s great value has been discovered by many others. Here are a few examples:
• Market analysts have discovered patterns in price movements, called cycles, which are amazingly accurate in predicting future prices.
• Economist Martin Armstrong developed forecasting models based on historical cycles that have proven to be so accurate the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) prosecuted him in 1999 on false charges of fraud because they wanted to confiscate his proprietary forecasting methods. When he refused to give it to them, he was charged with obstruction of justice and put in prison. (Source: Wikipedia)
• The Rothschild family has used this key for hundreds of years to amass great wealth for themselves, which they have used to gain control over international money markets. (Source: Secrets of the Federal Reserve, page 48)
• Scientists have discovered historical patterns in the movement of the moon, planets and stars, enabling them to accurately predict their future movements.
Satan also understands the great value of this key, which is why he has been secretly scheming to keep it away from us by sending forth his minions to revise the stories of history in all types of media, including movies, television shows, newspapers, radio stations, book publishers and especially school textbooks. History has a long history of being revised, so this is not new. In the United States, it started long before we were born and gained great influence by the late 1800’s. For example, historian David Barton, founder of WallBuilders.com, studied the content of history books published since the start of our nation and discovered a significant shift around 1900 with many distortions and outright lies appearing in books published after that time. Since then, Satan’s grip has continually tightened through the acquisition and consolidation of all types of media businesses, including several mega-mergers in the 1990’s that have concentrated the full power of the media into fewer hands than ever before, making it easier to control than ever before. In upcoming posts, I will be sharing more detailed evidence of these schemes.
By the time we came along and learned history from our school textbooks, it was already too late. We had no chance of hearing the truth unless we were blessed to have parents who possessed great wisdom. The stories we learned in school had already been revised, which is why most of us have never heard of many of history’s greatest faith heroes, or the greatest moves of God’s Spirit, or the truth about the evil works of darkness throughout history. Instead, we have been indoctrinated with many lies, producing in us a grossly distorted perspective, like having cancer without even being aware of it.
We Need All Three Keys
The good news is God has given us these keys as the cure for this ailment. We have the first key, the scriptures, warning us that the whole world is under Satan’s power, the father of all lies. (John 8:44, 1 John 5:19) And we have been warned to be on the alert, on guard at all times, not giving Satan any opportunity to devour us. (1 Peter 5:8-9) Having this knowledge, we can defend ourselves by avoiding the sources of his indoctrination and by being more selective about the sources we trust. But we are not limited to playing defense. We can take the offensive by studying and learning from each of the three keys, especially our most powerful offensive weapon, the Word of God, which is like a sharp sword. (Ephesians 6:17) And we have the second key, the power of the Holy Spirit, to guide us and help us grow in our knowledge of the truth. In addition, we have scriptural instructions to humble ourselves, which will help us grow faster by being willing to re-align our perspectives as we discover new evidence. (James 4:10)
In our quest for the truth and study of the evidence found in historical patterns, I believe the best sources are the testimonies of first-hand eyewitnesses, based on their original documents and letters, especially when confirmed by many other first-hand eyewitnesses. That’s way better than second-hand summaries written in later generations. Beyond that, we have the evidence of physical structures built in previous generations that provide us with clues about their lives and their capabilities that often contradicts the popular conclusions of historians and archeologists. That’s the kind of evidence I’m seeking and will be presenting to reveal Mystery Babylon.
As much as we need the third key, it only works when used together with the other two. Even with all the best evidence and testimonies from first-hand eyewitness, we can still get confused and draw the wrong conclusions unless we pursue a scriptural perspective with the help of the Holy Spirit guiding us.
We need all three keys working together, not just for understanding Mystery Babylon, but for every area of our life. For example, our knowledge of the scriptures and historical patterns can help us immediately recognize false prophecies, especially words regarding current and future events. Unfortunately, there are many false prophecies being circulated among us, especially on the Internet. Based on some of the emails and comments I’ve seen, many people are basing their entire belief systems on these lies because they’re failing to use the other two keys. They wrongly assume they’re on solid ground because they heard it in a prophecy, but God has given us everything we need to avoid making that mistake.
I believe this end-time generation is going to tap into the wisdom of God like no previous generation has ever done, acquiring insights that will enable us to know the times and seasons with such clarity that nothing will catch us by surprise (Proverbs 22:3). By using all three keys, we’re finally going to operate at full power, fully equipped, just the way God has planned for us all along.
