False Crowns

​Zechariah 9:16

Poll: 29% see Biblical ‘last days,’ 44% say the virus is God’s ‘wake-up call.’ Washington Examiner | Paul Bedard | March 31, 2020

“That Day” in Scripture
• Distinct Day
• Marked Out In Advance 
• A Radical Change In Perspective
• Requires New Strategies 

EVERYTHING CHANGED SO QUICKLY
Exodus 12:12-13 ‘For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt. I will execute judgment: I am the Lord. Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.”

ECONOMIC REARRANGEMENT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD “The original Passover resulted in a massive redistribution of wealth from the Egyptians to the Jews. It literally took the wealth of the unrighteous who would use it for evil and gave it to the Jews who would use it to build a Tabernacle for the Lord.” Jimmy Evans 

“In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship. God said, ‘You want to worship athletes, I will shut down stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down the Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me; I will make it where you can’t go to church.'” Sandy Barker-Mitchell

NOTHING MAKES SENSE
Isaiah 55:6-9 “Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

“God is using COVID-19 to ‘plow America’ and breakthrough hearts that have been hardened to Him.”      Jim Laffoon

David Wilkerson (1986) “I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches, and government will shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it as it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.” 

ONLY ONE CROWN WILL PREVAIL FALSE CROWNS 
Matthew 24:23-24 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” 

Zechariah 9:14-16 “Then the Lord will be seen over them, And His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord God will blow the trumpet, And go with whirlwinds from the south. The Lord of hosts will defend them; They shall devour and subdue with sling stones [David & Goliath]. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; They shall be filled with blood like basins, Like the corners of the altar. The Lord their God will save them IN THAT DAY, As the flock of His people. For they shall be like the JEWELS OF A CROWN [consecration, separation], Lifted like a banner over His land.”

ONLY ONE CROWN WILL PREVAIL Crown (Diadem) διάδημα, στέφανος: στ. like the Latin corona is a crown in the sense of a wreath, or garland—the badge of “victory in the games, of civic worth, of military valor”; διάδημα is a crown as the badge of royalty Revelation 19:11-16 “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns [diadems]. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
