Ephesians 6:16 states, “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Who are “the wicked”? When I ask people in church this question, they say “the wicked” is the devil. The devil has billions of followers and worshippers (wicked people), and GOD has hundreds of millions of worshippers and followers.

First of all, I would like to give you Webster’s definition of “overwhelming”: “(1) to pour down upon and bury beneath; (2) to crush, overpower.”

To define who “the wicked” are, we will start out with the book of Revelation. Revelation 12:9 states, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Now, if the devil, or Satan, has deceived the whole world, then the whole world has become wicked people through Satan’s deceiving them. I do mean “the whole world,” with the exception of those of us whose names are written in the LAMB’S Book of Life (Revelation 13:8).

Now, to strengthen my point, let’s look at Revelation 13:1. The Apostle John said, “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast [a kingdom] rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns [this is symbolic of the seven mountains of Rome,1 and the ten horns are the formulation of the United Nations’ one-world government], and upon his horns ten crowns [showing these are ten kingdoms which have united to give their power and strength to Rome’s United Nations’ one-world government, media, and cult church. This Satan has done and is still doing in order to have overwhelming wickedness so it may crush, bury, and overpower anyone who dares to defy Satan’s one-world government, U.N. new world order, cult church, and media. Satan uses the media to make good people look bad with propaganda.], and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard [this is symbolic of India], and his feet were as the feet of a bear [symbolic of Russia], and his mouth as the mouth of a lion [this is symbolic of the U.K.]: and the dragon [the devil] gave him his [overwhelming] power, and his seat [which is Satan’s seat, the Vatican headquartered in Rome], and great authority [which is authority or overwhelming power over the entire world]. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed [GOD is reminding both John and us that ancient Rome fell and was actually finished (dead) until the spirit of Satan entered into Rome again in these last days, giving Rome, the Vatican, its overwhelmingly wicked power to bury, crush, and overpower the saints of GOD and the people of the whole world, as well as to blaspheme the Holy name of GOD ALMIGHTY, ‘EL SHADDAI’]: and all the [deceived] world [of wicked people] wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon [the devil] which gave power unto the beast [the overwhelmingly wicked world government]” (Revelation 13:2-4a).

You can plainly see that the whole world is wicked because they are worshipping the devil.2 Again, this includes all the people in the world, with the exception of those of us who are written in the LAMB’S Book of Life. The whole world of wicked people are worshipping the overwhelmingly wicked power of Satan who has united himself, by craft (the media), to everybody in the world whose names are not written in the Book of Life.

Wicked humanity under Satan has attempted to overwhelm the rest of us on several other occasions in the history of the world. However, GOD has shown humanity, whom HE has created out of dirt,3 how much stronger HE is than they are. HE let the flood waters run into everyone’s nose and throat, snuffing the life out of all the wretched bodies in the world, drowning all of them—killing them—except for Noah and his family.4

GOD also destroyed humans’ first attempt to create the United Nations, or one-world government, at the Tower of Babel by causing them all to speak different languages, making it impossible for them to be united in evil (Genesis 11:1-9). This GOD did because HE knew and still knows that “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.

“A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary. O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake THEE shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters. Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for THOU art my praise. Behold, they say unto me, Where is the WORD of the LORD? let it come now. As for me, I have not hastened from being a pastor to follow THEE: neither have I desired the woeful day; THOU knowest: that which came out of my lips was right before THEE. Be not a terror unto me: THOU art my hope in the day of evil. Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction” (Jeremiah 17:9-18).

This was two strikes, and the world still existed. But when strike three comes—and it’s coming soon—it will be “three strikes and you’re out,” with the exception of those of us whose names are written in the LAMB’S Book of Life (Revelation 21:9-27). There’s a big fire coming, and all those who are not in the LAMB’S Book of Life shall be burning throughout eternity forever.5

Revelation 13:4b states that the whole world of wicked people is worshipping the U.N.’s one-world government or new world order in these words: “And they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” In other words, who is able to combat the overwhelmingly wicked lies of the media, the overwhelmingly wicked false accusations of the court system and media, the overwhelmingly wicked atrocities, unfairness, murders, destructions of every kind, thievery, wastefulness, sinfulness, blasphemies, unwarranted persecutions, and kidnappings, this force of hatred hurled at the Godly people of this earth by the overwhelming, demonic and wicked force of Satan, which is all rolled up in this United Nations’ one-world government?

There’s only one way in which the righteous are able to keep themselves fit to fight this overwhelmingly wicked monster. If you have ever believed GOD, you had better believe HIM now when HE says you are to put on the whole armour of GOD, and “ABOVE ALL, tak[e] the shield of faith [in GOD’S WORD], wherewith ye SHALL BE ABLE TO QUENCH ALL THE FIERY DARTS [false accusations and evil laws] OF THE WICKED” (Ephesians 6:16).

The whole scripture reads like this: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD, and in the power of HIS might [in the SPIRIT]. Put on the whole armour of GOD, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil [all the overwhelmingly wicked people of the world]. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places [promulgated by humans holding positions in high places, members of Satan’s wicked army].

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of GOD [study the whole WORD of GOD6], that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day [when the false accusations and bizarre laws and persecutions come your way], and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with TRUTH [the WORD of GOD], and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD of GOD: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the SPIRIT, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18). This means to stand with the saints when you see that they need your help because of Satan’s new evil laws.

Revelation 13:5-8 states, “And there was given unto him [the overwhelmingly wicked one-world government] a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies [this is from the overwhelmingly wicked one-world government media]; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against GOD, to blaspheme HIS name, and HIS tabernacle [we, the saints that HE lives in are the tabernacle of GOD], and them that dwell in Heaven [the angels and all those saints who have gone on home before us (again, the media makes all those that are good seem to be evil)]. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. AND ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM [This is accomplished by the media.], whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the LAMB slain from the foundation of the world.” Again, these are the wicked ones, all those who live upon the face of the earth who are bringing false accusations against the saints and believe all the false accusations against the saints because of propaganda through the media. They’re losing their souls because of it. They think they are winning, but they are all losing. They are losers.

Second Peter, chapter 2 states,“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers [the media] among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies [like Satan’s new laws, such as same-sex marriages, abortion, etc.], even denying the LORD that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious [very harmful or destructive] ways; by reason of whom the way of TRUTH [the ways of JESUS] shall be evil spoken of [by Satan’s world media, government, and cult church of Rome]. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

“For if GOD spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to Hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly [live according to Satan’s new same-sex marriage laws, and the government’s exaltation of homosexuality and lesbianism,7 all promoted by Satan’s Vatican media]; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked [homosexuals, lesbians, all sodomites]: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The LORD knoweth how to deliver the Godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the LORD. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

“These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome [overwhelmed], of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the Holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” (2 Peter chapter 2).

This prophecy has already happened. Millions of people have fallen away from CHRIST, and by this I mean the great falling away from CHRIST, which was also prophesied concerning the near coming of CHRIST mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The prophecy states, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come [the return of CHRIST], except there come a falling away first.” Would you say that if the whole world is worshipping Satan, that this would be a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? Would you say that if supposed-to-be ministers of the Gospel are denying the legal age of marriage, which is puberty, as well as denying many other scriptures in the Bible, and are going along with the satanic anti-CHRIST government and their new laws, that this would be a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? Would you say that when the LORD’S ministers are placed in prison on false charges, and no one is speaking out against it, that this would be a sign of the falling away from CHRIST?

Would you say that a government that slaughters children, their mothers and their fathers at Waco, Texas, and many other places around the world, and no one speaks out against it, indicates a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? Would you say that when fallen-away Christians turn on their pastors, betraying them by lying about them, fully knowing that the court system and the government will reward them handsomely and place the Godly pastors in prison for life, that this would be a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? Would you say it is a sign when people see UFOs hovering over cities throughout the world, knowing the Heavenly beings are angels surveying the earth just before they destroy it?8 The fallen-away Christians would say these UFOs are from other planets, knowing they are lying, because they know they are from Heaven. Would you say that this is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST?

When you see presidents, kings, and supposed-to-be churches supporting same-sex marriages, would you say that this is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? Would you say it is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST when the one-world government tells you that you cannot discipline your children when they become incorrigible, as the Bible commands that you do? When the government steals your children away from parents and a Godly church, based on lies from disgruntled former Christians who have become anti-CHRIST, and the government adopts them out to homosexuals, would you say that this is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST? When you see children in public schools being taught that homosexuality and lesbianism is a third sexual choice, a disease instead of a perversion, and see the Vatican world government enforcing this demonic, maniacal policy, would you say that this is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST?

If you see the corrupt anti-CHRIST government saying the U.S. Constitution doesn’t apply any longer and that the First Amendment, the freedom of religion, doesn’t apply any longer, so that Christians can no longer believe the Bible and do what it says, would you say that this is a sign of the falling away from CHRIST?

If you own a photography or flower shop and tell homosexual couples that you will not photograph their same-sex marriages or create flower arrangements for their perverted weddings, the government forces perversion upon you and you no longer have the right to discriminate to whom you will serve and whom you will not serve. Would you call this a sign of the falling away from CHRIST, the end of our land of the free and the home of the brave? All of these corrupt perversions of justice that you see today are brought about by the Roman Catholic Church cult government media. And what I’ve just stated is only the tip of the iceberg.

Would you not call this overwhelming wickedness? Is this not the U.N. anti-CHRIST government? Would you not call this the pouring down upon and burying beneath? Is this not the government crushing and overpowering your freedom?

If you’re trying to find out how close we are to the coming of CHRIST, read the Bible. We are not to allow any man to deceive us, as Second Thessalonians 2:3 says. It further states, “For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.”

The Bible tells us that there are two men; one is the first Adam, and the second is the LAST ADAM, which is CHRIST (1 Corinthians 15:45-47). People are either in CHRIST, the LAST ADAM, or they are in the first Adam, on their way to Hell and the Lake of Fire.9

This scripture, which speaks of that man of perdition, is speaking of the whole deceived world. The ones who worship Satan, therefore, have become members of the first Adam. They are the ones who are going to Hell and the Lake of Fire. They are the ones who are saying, “Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4). They don’t give GOD credit for having the ability to destroy all these wicked people with one swat, one smack, as HE once did with the world population in the days of Noah.10 GOD will destroy all these creatures which HE created out of mere dirt11 with fire.12

It is written that this first Adam, who GOD created out of dirt, “opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called GOD, or that is worshipped; so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of GOD [These members of the temple of GOD are those who have become the temple of Satan. Satan, by his spirit, now sits in these former members of the temple of GOD, those who have become antichrists. Before they fell away, they were part of the temple of GOD. For those of us who have been born again of the SPIRIT, who have remained the temple of GOD, the scripture states, ‘Know ye not that ye are the temple of GOD, and that the SPIRIT of GOD dwelleth in you?’ (1 Corinthians 3:16). But these who were once the temple of GOD, the place where GOD once lived by HIS SPIRIT, have fallen away, and have allowed the spirit of Satan to enter them. They have become the whole deceived world, those who worship the dragon, the devil (Revelation 12:9). Again, they have become the Antichrist, the united one-world government, joined together with the deceived people, now] showing himself that he [united with them] is [are] GOD [showing that Satan will change the laws of GOD13 to be extreme perversion as it is today, and will force everyone, with the exception of those whose names are written in the LAMB’S Book of Life, to honor same-sex marriages, abortion (which is first degree murder), adultery, fornication, and the dishonoring of marriage, and they will blaspheme GOD by denying HIS WORD, HIS laws, HIS statutes, and HIS precepts.]” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

The Apostle Paul then states by the HOLY SPIRIT in verses 5 through 12, “Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time [GOD has withheld destroying these people until the time this Antichrist is revealed, and now the revelation of him is revealed. Now you people of the world have no excuse for not repenting of this sin and all of your sins.].

“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only HE who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the SPIRIT of HIS mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of HIS coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. [This is Satan’s last shot before he’s sent to Hell and the Lake of Fire, so he is doing everything in his power he can to depress people, causing them to believe that he is all-powerful, when in fact, he is the weakest individual in the entire universe.14 Yet he has caused billions of souls to spend eternity with him in Hell, then the Lake of Fire.]

“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [Some people will say, ‘Saved from what?’ The answer is: saved from an eternity of being constantly boiled and fried in fire, brimstone, and lava, with no relief ever. No pain pills, no water, and no ice cold drinks. No food, no shade, and never one moment of rest. That’s what you’re supposed to want to be saved from. If you have any sense at all, you will be!] And for this cause GOD shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [the whole world does believe a lie, else the whole world would not be deceived, and the whole world would not be worshipping Satan, the devil, the beast, the U.N. world government as they now do]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:5-12).

Second John 6-11 states, “And this is love, that we walk after HIS [GOD’S] commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that JESUS CHRIST is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of CHRIST, hath not GOD. He that abideth in the doctrine of CHRIST, he hath both the FATHER and the SON. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him GOD speed [I’m sure the LORD would not want you to do business with them, so the LORD gives you the option to choose whom you will do business with]: For he that biddeth him GOD speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

So if you wish them “GOD speed,” you will receive the same ill reward that the homosexuals and all other unrepentant sinners will receive, which is a burning eternity in Hell and an eternity in the Lake of Fire, screaming your head off, with no relief. Satan wants you to fellowship with homosexuals and abortionists (murderers),15 and he wants you to vote for same-sex marriages so that you will receive the same ill, eternal fate as they and all other unrepentant sinners shall surely receive.16

We are at war with Satan. He’s looking to destroy your soul and the souls of everyone.17 If you want to be spared by GOD, you must fight by asking GOD to do the fighting for you, because if GOD doesn’t do the fighting for you, then you will not win, whether you like it or not. You will either ask GOD to fight for you or not. Again, if GOD doesn’t do the fighting for you, you cannot win. Every battle in the Bible was won, not by man, but by GOD. You will either fight for Satan or have GOD do the fighting for you against Satan. There is no in-between. This fight is for your soul, and you will either win or you will lose. If GOD does the fighting for you, you will win. You must choose between GOD or Satan, Heaven or Hell, and it is a choice you will make for an eternity either in Heaven or Hell.18 You may try to put this true fact out of your mind, but on the Day of Judgment, you’re going to face up to it. You will stand before the Judgment Bar of GOD, like it or not, and I don’t want you to say that no one ever told you.

This world has gone too far. I want you to know that there surely is a day of reckoning.19 GOD will save the most wicked sinner if they will repent of their sins to HIM (Isaiah 1:18). If you repent of your sins to GOD, you will be allowing HIM to change your life once and for all, you will make a go of it on a daily basis.20 You will eat, sleep, and drink the WORD of GOD, and you will not be a phony about it.21 It is for the very life of your eternal soul. If this is your desire, to allow GOD to change you and to live in you on your behalf, then start out with HIM by saying this prayer:


My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11

Now that you are saved, serve GOD with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30).12 Be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.13 Diligently study the King James Version Bible and do what it says till the day you die.14

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will [you] rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the win­dows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delight­some land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
