2023: THE YEAR OF WONDERS
Written by Pastor Marcos Marrero
Published on 1/7/23
Acts 2:19 “I will show WONDERS in heaven above and SIGNS in the earth beneath: blood and fire and vapor of smoke.”
We could say that the SIGNS in the earth have already been occurring for a while now, but what
is coming—very possibly this year—is God’s response to all that has been taking place under this new age of “WOKE-ISM”.
Psalm 138:2 “I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; for You have magnified Your word above all Your name.”
The Word of God is spiritual and in order for us to understand them we have to be born again spiritually. So that those who lack this spiritual discernment are very prone to follow the spirit of delusion that leads them straight to hell itself.
1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, BECAUSE THEY ARE (they have to be) SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED.” In brackets and bold mine for emphasis.
The heavenly wonders reveal the truth that can only be found in the Word of God. The earthly wonders reveal the lies that have taken so many captive by the delusions that they have believed.
Wokeism embodies the very perversion of all that is truth. It is a deception that mocks the very act of the awakening that takes place at the moment that a person is born again after receiving Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and LYING WONDERS, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
The main evil spirits behind WOKE-ISM can be easily identified as Lawlessness, Inquisition and Antichrist. In the last couple of years we saw the signs of how the spirit of Lawlessness wreaked havoc all over the United States with impunity. The signs of the spirit of Inquisition was and is still demonstrated against those who dare to take a public stand for what is obviously truth. The spirit of Antichrist has been around since Jesus rose from the dead, but now its prominence is that it is well received in all kinds of its perverted form, while true Christianity is openly rejected by society and governments throughout the world.
While the vast majority of those who have fallen under the spell of wokeism are living a life of deception, I am pretty certain that Satan has placed in strategic positions of leadership some of his own disciples trained in the mysteries of the occult. These are persons that know that God is real and that His Word is truth, but have chosen to serve the devil. What I am trying to say is that they know by studying the Word of God what is coming and what they need to do to in order to manipulate the truth and take advantage of the situation for their own profit.
Psalm 2:1 “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?”
Wokeism is the vain thing that the world is using to plot against God and His Anointed One.
Psalm 2:2-3 “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.’”
The kings and rulers take counsel together: Who are these rulers that plot with those who govern their nations? The ruling spirits that manifest themselves through wokeism!
Psalm 2:4-5 “He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure.”
He shall speak to them in His wrath: How or in what manner is God going to speak to the kings and rulers of this world?
Revelation 6:12-13 “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood. And THE STARS OF HEAVEN fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.”
God answers them with wonders in the sun and in the moon, when the earth cracks open releasing a great earthquake that causes all the demonic rulers to fall from the second heaven to the earth.
Revelation 6:14-15 “Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rock of the mountains.”
What irony, the ruling demons are thrown down to the earth and the mighty men hide in their bomb shelters inside the earth.
Revelation 6:16-17 “And said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’”
All the pieces are in place right now, it could happen at any moment, even in this new year. Meanwhile there are so many still under the cloud of deception caused by wokeism. Is the Lord going to do something to awaken them from their demonic slumber before it is too late?
Acts 2:20-21 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The devil will do his very best to try to keep the heavenly wonders that God will reveal from turning those who have been blinded to the truth that Jesus is coming to the earth to reign and to rule for one thousand years.
I often think about the reaction of those who have not yet accepted Jesus’ offer of grace, when these wonders begin. How would you see Jesus? Is He coming to rescue you from God’s dreadful judgments? Or, are you going to call upon the name of the Lord to save you then? Or, is your great fear going to overwhelm you and cause you to run away and hide from Him?
I am sure many of you have heard the Scripture that says that God so loved the world that He sent His only Son to die for you on the cross. Have you heard the next verse after that?
John 3:17 “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Jesus is coming back to the earth to judge it and to get rid of all the evil in it. The only way to escape God’s final judgment is to be cleansed from all evil with the blood of Jesus. By all means don’t wait until it is too late. Call upon His name right now and say: Help me Jesus!
Search the Bible and you will find that not a single one that truly repented was ever turned down by God; NOT A SINGLE ONE!
