Preparation of the Bride, and its impact on World
~ The PREPARATION of the BRIDE,
and its impact on World Events
^ Events surrounding this prophecy.
- November 24, 2005 (or perhaps a few weeks
before this date). A prophecy received by Maurice Sklar.
[ PREFACE ]
During the past few weeks the Lord has
led me to intercede for the nations. The world has experienced numerous
disasters and tragedies and continues to do so. There is no question
that we are living in the final days before the return of our Messiah,
Jesus. This prophecy was given to me a few weeks ago,
and I was reluctant to release it because it is so strong. But the
Lord has compelled me to do so. I want to say emphatically that I
believe that it is conditional. If we will pray and intercede, perhaps,
many of these calamities can be averted and/or postponed.
I pray that as you read this, that you
will keep an open mind and receive the main message: We must be
ready for the Lord's return. We must return
to our first love and live a pure and consecrated
life if we are to be pleasing to Him when He appears.
May the Lord purify our hearts
so we can be a part of His wonderful and beautiful Bride!
OF THE BRIDE
"And to the angel of the church of the
Laodiceans write... I know thy works, that thou art neither
cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou
art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew (vomit)
thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and
increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not
that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and
blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried
in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white rainment that thou mayest
be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint
thine eyes with eye-salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love,
I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I
stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and
will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh
will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also
overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath
ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." (
As I was reading
and meditating on this scripture, the Lord said to me:
"I am sending my refining fire
into the church. I am separating My bride from the
Laodicean church of today. I am preparing her.
I am purifying her. She will be without spot and without
blemish. I will return for her in the midnight hour. Only
those that are watching and praying; only those who are
embracing the message of the cross and holiness; only those
that walk in the power of My spirit in moment by moment
obedience; only those who are overcomers will be a part
of My bride.
Most of those
in the church will not be ready for Me when I come for My
bride. Many think they are saved, but they are
not at all. They are serving pleasures, lusts, and
are in love with themselves. They are consumed with this present
world and its' selfish ways. They are in love with money,
success, and covet fame, position and power. They do not
want to deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Me.
They refuse to forsake all. Therefore, they will not be ready
and will be left behind to face the great judgments
that are about to come upon the world. Warn those that are
lukewarm and have left their first love for Me, that
if they do not repent, I will vomit them from My body.
I am preparing My bride.
This is her hour of glory! I am purifying her. I am
adorning her with My crowns and My jewels and My beautiful gowns.
She shall be without spot or blemish. She will be dressed
in My robes of righteousness – pure, clean and white.
Who will come to Me and buy from Me what they so desperately need?
It still is not too late. Repent, and return to Me
with all of your hearts, so that you do not perish with this evil
I am sending a mighty
army from mainland China along the old silk trade routes and
into the unreached nations that have been called the 10/40 window.
When they finally reach Jerusalem, THEN KNOW that the wedding
day is upon you. [see Rev
19:7 ] Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh. [see
Luk 21:28 ] I will then come
in the clouds and meet you in the air! [see
1Th 4:17 ] But, the remaining
nations must still hear my gospel of grace. [see
Mat 24:14 ] This will be the final
and greatest harvest that the world has ever seen.
hundreds of millions are waiting to hear the
good news in China, in India, and in the other Buddhist
and Muslim dominated regions of Asia, the near
east and the middle east, as well as the poorest of nations
in Africa and central and South America, as well as
the hundreds of islands in the oceans of the earth.
I am shifting my focus to them. But you, O church of America
and the West have prostituted yourself at every opportunity
before every high place and idol shrine. You have substituted
religion for My Presence. You shall surely perish
when the fullness of My wrath comes upon Babylon.
You shall be utterly burned with fire. You have heard and
received the fullness of My love and grace, America. Still,
you spit in My face and harden your hearts and refuse to turn
back to Me.
you rejected Me and threw Me out. For hundreds of years
you provoked Me to wrath. You despised My people Israel and
slaughtered them in a rage that reached to heaven after robbing
the Jewish people and throwing them out of nation after
nation. You did this all in My Name!! How can you escape
the wrath to come?! You cannot. Therefore, you shall receive
and drink the fullness of My cup of wrath. Prepare
to meet your God, O Europe! Europe, you shall receive
the King that you desire to worship instead of Me.
He is soon to come forth. When you receive his mark, you will
be eternally damned. [see Rev
You drove My people from their homes in Gaza, and
then started upon Judea and Samaria in Israel. [ Under pressure
from US and world leaders, Israel completed its historic withdrawal of
25 settlements from the Gaza Strip and a corner of the West Bank on Tuesday,
August 23, 2005 [8/23/05].] Therefore, I will drive you from your
homes in direct proportion, of 10,000 to 1, as you have seen in
New Orleans, Louisiana, and the Gulf Coast. [ Hurricane
Katrina hit the Gulf Coast 6 days later on Monday, August 29, 2005 [8/29/05].]
There will follow two more judgments – one in a major
city of Europe and one in the Arab nations in
the middle east before the end of this year .
will shake California in a warning, and then there shall
finally come the earthquake that I have mercifully withheld
for so many years. Millions shall perish in the ensuing
floods and the west coast of America shall be removed
and fall into the ocean.
This is but a fraction of what
is soon to come if there is not repentance and turning back
shall experience a major attack upon a great school that
once preached My gospel in ages past but has left the faith
of their fathers – never to return again. It will never
be rebuilt again. [Harvard?]
be 5 terrorist attacks that will hit America in ever increasing
destruction upon the major cities.
the end of 2007, a nuclear "dirty bomb" will blow
up in a major city in the south of America.
City will receive 3 major judgments before the end of
2008. Each one will be more devastating than the last.
One will shake the entire financial
world and cripple the once invincible financial power
of America. Millions will lose everything in
a moment. It will make the crash of the stock market in 1929
look like a little thing in comparison. America will no
longer be the financial leader of the world.
Japan. Hong Kong, China. Johannesburg, South
Africa. Calcutta, India. Sidney, Australia.
Chicago, Illinois. Los Angeles, California. Paris,
France and many other cities will experience major catastrophies
in the next five years [2006 - 2010].
Another judgment will destroy a
major stadium during a sports event.
Yet another explosion will destroy
nearly an entire Borough of New York.
But for the sake of the Jewish
people in New York, I will supernaturally spare them.
After this, I will cause the largest
aliyah (return) of My people (the Jewish people) from New
York (and other regions throughout the developed world to Israel)
in all of history. But only after the entire financial
system that they are dependant on collapses will they all return
to the land that I have promised them.
upon millions will perish. The aids epidemic will devastate
the population in Africa to half of its' present size in
the next 4 years [2006 - 2009]. Many other incurable diseases,
famine, drought and starvation will soon devastate
the under-developed nations of the world in a way that has never
will launch a sudden nuclear attack and then be completely
destroyed. Only the prayers of South Korea can stop it.
will become a leading center for world terrorism and will
experience a nuclear attack, also.
is soon to once again send their planes and blow up
the nuclear "plants" of Iran.
Syria will soon
collapse economically and be replaced by a fanatical Islamic
major coordinated Al Qaeda terrorist attack will blow up
many historic places in Europe that were once bastions of
true Christian faith, worship, art and music.
America does not stand up now and defend Israel instead
of forcing Israel from their land, we will continue to face
the devastating consequences here [in America]. At the rate
of 10,000 to 1, we will continue to face destruction of our homes and communities.
For every Jewish soul that is touched – I will require 10,000 souls
in America to account for it.
will shake all the nations, and then after each disaster,
I will pour out My grace and bring in a mighty harvest
of souls for My kingdom. As birth contractions happen
with a pregnant woman, so will these events happen ever faster and greater.
Each one will be more devastating than the last one, and each one will
come closer and closer together. Haven't I said exactly this in My
Word? Each disaster will judge and smash an
idol that is worshipped by the world system of Babylon.
I will then show Myself as the one true God over them all.
will judge Hollywood and the entire movie industry for the
millions upon millions of souls that they seduced and sent to hell.
There is coming
a revival of morality and religion in America
as a result of these calamities, but it will be a false one for
the most part. God will become popular in the culture,
but not the Bible and My name (Jesus). It will
be a false gospel message. Not many will truly
be born again. Only a remnant in My church will
truly stay in right relationship to Me.
I will judge
the news media and the television industry.
I will judge
the music industry. I will overturn the whole music industry
in such a way that they can never pollute the world ever again.
I will judge
the internet pornography industry. Whole internet computer
systems will be permanently shut down.
I will judge the
abortionists and their supporters.
I will judge
and reverse the Supreme Court. For a short time
they shall change the laws to fear and honor Me.
you see me take Billy Graham and Oral Roberts home, you will
know that America and the West have received their
As I said in My Word,
unless the Father would shorten these days, even the elect
would not be saved. [see Mat
24:22 ] The deception of "Christian religion" will
grow so great, that it will be nearly impossible to recognize
the true prophets and teachers from the false ones.
Counterfeit miracles and false "signs and wonders" will come
and deceive many. [see Mat 24:24
] Churches will preach a "success and personal
achievement" gospel. Even false healing meetings will
come and actually produce real miracles, but they will not bring
the people to Me. The preaching of My supreme Lordship,
the cross, My blood, holiness, and the fear of
the Lord will become more and more rare, even more than it has
become during the last 35 years [1971 - 2005].
I have supernaturally preserved and kept My bride pure and
faithful to Me. I will continue to do so. Most
of My bride is in mainland China now. Many are
in Asia, and Korea and India and Brazil and
Russia and Kenya and Nigeria and throughout Africa. Most
of My bride is hidden away in their prayer closets
and have been persecuted and driven out of the churches
by abusive pastors and false prophets, ministry leaders,
and oppressive government leaders. Many are in prison.
Some are daily dying of starvation and disease. Most
of My bride has been beaten and left by the side of the road
[see Luk 10:30 ] by the religious
'wolves in sheep's clothing'. [see Mat
7:15 ] They have been forgotten by the blinding greed
of those hoarding their money and riches. Only the Good
Samaritans can even spot them and see them. [see Luk
10:33-34 ] The rest are blinded. [see Luk
10:31-32 ] Only a few really love My bride the way that
bride is being purified through the fire of many trials
of afflictions and persecutions at this present hour.
Those that walk in My love and embrace the cross are
being separated and persecuted by the Laodicean church.
Those that are truly anointed and bringing the pure Word
from My throne are being thrown out of the pulpits of the land and
off of 'Christian Television' in favor of the confession
of the Laodicean church: 'I am rich, I am increased with
goods and have need of nothing. [see Rev
3:17 ] I am healed. I am blessed.'
Really???? Are you???? It doesn't look that way from
My throne in heaven!
of any teaching that is selfish and appeals to your lusts
and feeds the love of money in your lives. [see 2Ti
4:3 ] THAT teaching does not come from heaven. That is
not My voice. My blessings come through seeking first the
Kingdom and My righteousness [see Mat
6:33 ], not from heaping riches upon yourself while the
rest of the world starves to death and dies and goes to hell because of
your selfishness and greed. You will see when you stand before Me
what the TRUE RICHES are. The souls of the lost
are the jewels in the crown of My bride.
and musicians, artists and those that carry special anointings
have been almost systematically removed from ministries and
church leaders in favor of what is popular and can bring
in the most money and please the people. This is an
abomination in My sight.
Watch and pray that you
may be accounted worthy to escape the things that are coming
upon this earth. Receive My grace through the refining
fire of the Holy Spirit so that you can be a part of that beautiful
lady and bride. I am preparing her! It still isn't too late!
Join with her and take up your cross and deny yourselves
and follow Me.
Love in Our Messiah,
That is how to be TRULY blessed
and healed and delivered and fulfilled in life!
That is the only way that My gift of eternal life
can shine into the darkness of the world around you"
"Wherefore come out from among
them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the
unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you,
and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty...
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves
from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting
holiness in the fear of God." (2
Corinthians 6:17-18, 7:1)
"And I heard another voice from heaven,
saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people, that ye be
not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of
her plagues." (Revelation 18:4)
