Midnight Cry: A Message To All Churches
The Imminent Fall of America
What an irony! The Church is meant to be a bastion of truth, protecting it, jealously guarding the faith once delivered to the saints and earnestly contending for it (Jude 3), but she isn’t. Instead, we see evangelists doing their own thing for ratings, or to muster up support (of the fiscal kind), so they can preach to ever larger audiences!
But God never said He wants to convert the whole world now. And as they reach the masses, and bring the ‘lost’ into compromised churches where false ministers rule, have these ‘men of God’ never stopped to think of all the warnings of Jesus against deception, falsity, wolves, charlatans and hypocrisy?!
They are just farming out these poor, gullible sheep to tyrants used by the devil. Most ministers don’t care for truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They care for their salary first, their prestige second (or maybe the other way around), the stability of their enterprises third, and lastly for some truth that will maintain that selfish agenda – some truth, not all.
And in these far from ideal systems called ‘churches’ (a misnomer, because Jesus’ Church is not the structure or the building, but the individuals who have the Spirit and who are led by the Spirit, not by men), you will see most ministers behaving like despots (albeit with clever subtlety – and justifying it by misquoting the Bible to support their hierarchic stand), and the sheep instinctively following them and what they say, not as the Bereans did, by checking everything (Acts 17:11).
It’s as if they are mesmerised. And most of them are. They can’t see how they have been duped. But what will they do in the end? Human behaviour hasn’t changed since Jeremiah warned:
The end of it all is a massive slaughter! (See the revelation from God about this in Preparing A Flock For Slaughter.) The Great Tribulation is SOON coming. It is the time that will test all who dwell on the earth (Rev 3:10; Matt 24:21,22).
Prophets were prophesying falsely and priests were officiating out of selfish motive in Elijah’s time. Under corrupt and heinously blasphemous civil leadership, the nation was following false concepts and idolatrous error to its own destruction.
God raised up a true prophet to challenge the wicked, wayward system all the way to the king.
Elijah was not like the mega-evangelists of our day, relying upon popularity and human acclaim to achieve his mission. He wouldn’t have sent out flyers with bits of human commendation to try and raise interest and funds. His commendation was from God and the evidence of that was in the miraculous testimony that accompanied his uncompromising message calling for repentance and reform.
‘Elijah’ in our day is no different. The message is not palatable. It is opposed by all the popular prophets and evangelists. But its verification is from God. It’s not what the majority (of Christians) want.
You may not liken the Christians of our time – especially the charismatic, avant-garde, zealous-for- true-worship Christians – to the Baal-worshipping idolaters who lined up for the big display on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:20-40). But there are some unmistakable similarities in style and deception.
When you accept false doctrine, you accept the demon that promoted it. And you worship demons thereby – which Paul vehemently denounced:
But most Christians do. They go along with church traditions that are nothing more than pagan rites from antiquity that were practiced to worship gods of sexual fertility. It is spiritual prostitution!
“Prostitution!?” you may object in horror. “How dare you call Christian worship today, prostitution!”
I’m only repeating what Jesus said:
Why would Jesus take the name of king Ahab’s evil wife, Jezebel, and apply it to some in His Church? And why would He use it in the context of prophesying – “who calls herself a prophetess”? If you knew how much of the ‘prophetic’ received by the charismatic church was from the devil, you would understand why.
There are false prophets and church leaders – many of them, leading God’s people astray. They speak evil of the true prophets who have little acclaim. They also oppose the true message of Elijah today.
You’d better believe it, that the Lord is VERY ANGRY at the way His truth is compromised! We see churches keeping Easter, oblivious to how they are insulting Him by using pagan hand-me-downs given to them by Church custom going all the way back to Catholic corrupters in the fourth and fifth centuries, NOT to the first century Church! The apostles didn’t keep Easter or Christmas. They observed Passover, Pentecost and all the festivals of God which Yahweh (Christ) gave to Israel for their entry to the Promised Land. (This is proved from Acts in our paper The Early Church Kept Israel’s Commanded Assemblies.)
Easter is derived from Ishtar or Asherah. We read of the prominence of priests of Asherah in 1 Kings 18:19, where Elijah asked Ahab to summon all 400 of them to be challenged on Carmel.
The “prophets of Asherah” were priests of Asherah, the female consort of Baal (cf Jud 2:11-13, note). They were maintained at the queen’s [Jezebel’s] expense, as the servants of her own Syrian goddess [paid hirelings]. (Footnote on 1 Ki 18:19, NKJV Believer’s Study Bible.)
[My comments added in square brackets.]
We are in a time of spiritual decline and apostasy right now, just as Paul predicted (1 Tim 4:1; 2 Thes 2:3) but the deceptions of Satan are far more subtle for Christians. Syncretism is a potent weapon of demons.
The angel said to Daniel:
In God’s ingenuity, the Hebrew contains dual meaning. Certainly, there has been a rapid increase in knowledge of the physical, and rapid transportation also fulfils the prophecy in the physical sense. But the Concordant Literal Translation of Daniel renders it as:
To swerve is to deviate from what is straight and true. It may only be a slight deviation, but that is enough to take you off course and the wrong way. Such is the way of the Church at this time, which is why God has to send Elijah (Mal 4:5,6).
If you have read our ‘parent’ publication Who Is The End-Time Elijah?, you will know that one of the principal functions of Elijah’s coming is to prepare the Way, and what that means. Restoring lost truth that the Church has swerved away from, and restoring true practice is pivotal to preparing for Jesus’ coming. He’s not coming to take a Bride to Himself who is a prostitute, committing harlotry by taking part in idolatrous customs that have been imposed on her through Catholic tradition.
If you trace back the major apostate teachings of the Church, you find that most have their origins in syncretism promoted by Emperor Constantine in the fourth century AD. A dramatic falling away accompanied these State incursions into religion. More heresies were introduced shortly after Constantine, by the emerging Catholic Church, intent on using false religion as a means to control and subjugate the masses psychologically. Among the major heresies are:
replace God’s Sabbath.
Midnight Ministries has a raft of publications giving a sufficiently thorough biblical exegesis of each subject to put the record straight. Some which cover the subjects itemised above are:
Controversy Concerning Law and Grace; Our Sabbath Rest.
And, God has given HIS seal of approval, through accompanying miracles and by speaking to others (who have never met me) commending this work of ‘Elijah’. (Some of this is contained in More Than A Prophet, What God Said About Midnight Ministries, Revelations From God About Midnight Ministries, our Dream Diaries, and in the testimony of others and how God has worked with them after they have accepted this restored Truth. We report some of these amazing happenings from abroad in our Newsletters.)
I am not the Elijah. The Work of God is, that we are engaged in. Wherever people are involved in taking these restored truths to others, without seeking any glory for themselves (many who have gone in Jesus’ name can’t see that they do that), they are also part of the ‘Elijah’ Work of God. Ignore people who arrogantly lay claim to that title, like Morris Cerullo, or the very many self-proclaimed ‘prophets’ who have no miraculous testimony behind them, merely words of pride and self-promotion. The work of Elijah is not one of pride, but of self-abasement. Notice it:
Do you see what God’s emphasis is? His truth – His Word – takes pride of place. That is what is pre- eminent; not man; not a prophet; not an evangelist; not the Church. Nothing human is of any intrinsic spiritual worth without its transformation by the Spirit of God according to the Word of God.
Elijah did not have popular support. He was opposed by the establishment, condemned by the king, and traduced by the false prophets. If he lived today, he would not be like Reinhard Bonnke, Morris Cerullo, Luis Palau, or Benny Hinn, receiving support from millions to reach out to the masses. His material support was so minimal, you wouldn’t have believed it unless the Bible had recorded it. At one time it was only one widow (1 Ki 17:9).
Prior to that, he had lived by the Kidron brook until it dried up, during the drought of judgement upon the nation for its sins. Ravens brought Elijah food twice a day (1 Ki 17:6).
Elijah’s support was supernatural, not human. I heard that the false prophet Rick Joyner (MorningStar Journal) proclaimed that he had so much money he was offering some to other ministries who were hard up. To people with fleshly considerations, that sounds like he’s ‘in’ with God, and the poor guys aren’t. But appearances and human perceptions can be very misleading because God does not think like us. The false prophets receive the acclaim and megasupport in this age. The true prophets don’t, and rarely have. But they have God’s support and guidance. And they have His supernatural power to boot.
God spoke to Elijah, showing him what to do and where to go (1 Ki 17:2,8; 18:1; 21:17).
You don’t declare a drought upon the nation for 3½ years, and see it happen in devastating force, if God has not spoken to you about it! (1 Ki 17:1.)
In 1994 God spoke to us to dig a cellar beneath our home. We had little human strength (Rev 3:8) – such minimal support that it was financially suicidal to go through with the proposition. But we did, because God had spoken. The project lasted two years (for the major part of the work) and was finally completed after seven years. But during that time, we needed money and had none. I had credit cards which I used, since it was the only form of finance available to me. And Tonya was good enough to pay the monthly repayments for us from her salary working for a local firm. But it took nearly all her salary each month to service the debt. It didn’t pay it off. The amount was huge (by our standards).
If God had not spoken to us earlier, warning that we had to be prepared to go deeply into debt (and He named a sum of £10,000), I would not have had the guts to go through with the project. It took us to the point of death. So did Elijah’s witness for God (1 Ki 19:2).
When we could go on no longer, and I was up to my credit ceiling, facing red bills that would warrant a court summons if not paid, then God moved. He kept someone awake at night, putting thoughts in their mind about how we were managing financially. When they found out about our desperate plight, they cleared all our credit card debts with one fell swoop.
And not only did God do it that time, He did it other times too, when we were equally destitute. God is a God of miracles, to those who are in His will.
When the son of the widow, with whom Elijah was staying, died (1 Ki 17:17), Elijah could have given up, but he didn’t. He knew that God is God, and has limitless power and wonderful mercy. So he threw himself on God’s mercy and refused to accept death as final. He took the child in his arms, placed him on his bed upstairs, and prayed earnestly. He stretched himself out on the child three times and asked for his life (spirit) to return. The third time, the child came alive.
In this ministry we teach the uncompromising and complete Word of God, which includes raising the dead (Matt 10:8). Those who believe it are able to receive, as David Isaac Ohuoba has demonstrated repeatedly in Nigeria (about 5 people have been raised from the dead there).
Alex Odhiambo in Kenya wrote to me on 10th June 2008 about a widow’s daughter who died. God raised her from the dead. Here is his testimony:
In another incident, a neighbour insulted and vilified Alex when he went to see her about some land. The hostility Alex received was completely unwarranted, so he quietly walked away.
She accused him of witchcraft and ascribed the miracles God had done to occult powers. A few days later God sent an angel in the middle of the night to beat her. (See p 31.)
The demons holding onto this lady first tried to poison Alex. She was going to invite Alex to her home and poison him, but God revealed her plot to Benter and Kennedy in another town a day’s journey away and they forewarned him.
First God gave Helena, here in Britain, a dream warning that a black woman was being very argumentative with Alex, and that she should not argue with him. Alex recognised that the dream depicted his situation with the woman.
Then God gave a dream to Kennedy in Kenya, showing that the woman swore to kill Alex because she was convinced he was bewitching her.
To add to the information God gave in the dream to Kennedy (see p 31), when Benter prayed about it, she was told that there would be a wooden cross on the wall of the woman’s home, fixed with a 3 inch nail, but that it would fall down as a sign from God.
When Alex told the woman all this, and showed her the account in writing, and the cross fell down, she repented and acknowledged that we do indeed bring the truth and power of God, not witchcraft. The last I heard is that she is learning from MM literature.
There is nothing more wonderful than for a sinner to turn away from sinning and turn their life over to God in humble obedience.
Elijah declared a three year drought upon the nation because of its stubborn rebellion. At the end of that time, God moved Elijah to summon the leaders and false prophets to Mount Carmel to hear him expose their treachery against God. You know the story. Fire fell from heaven to consume the sacrifice.
God backs up His ‘Elijahs’!
Alex was awoken one morning in July at 4.30 by a very unusual sound like thunder. The sound was so loud he got out of bed and sat and listened. When he had plucked up the courage to go outside and see whether rain was coming, all he saw was a clear sky with a bright shining moon.
He went back into his house. By now his body was covered in sweat and he was full of wonder, so he asked God what was happening.
As he was praying, God showed him a palace. In this palace were innumerable people who had been dead but were now resurrected. Their names were printed on the clothes on their backs. It was hard for him to read the names, except one – a lady walking towards the king who sat in front. On her back was the name “DIANA”.
Elijah got the attention of people back then by calling down fire from heaven to trounce all the false prophets. Elijah today will call down a different fire of God in our time. As we have prophesied since 1993, God will bring back people who have long been dead to attest to the truths of God we are promoting.
The false prophets had the hearts of the people (except for a few) especially the leaders. Elijah didn’t. True prophets are usually only recognised after they are dead. Jesus’ lament in Matthew 23:37 encapsulates the prophet’s lot – rejection and death.
A. The true prophets, of whom Jesus was chief, and those who believe them. If you believe the ones sent, you will receive the reward from God, which is primarily understanding the message. But most don’t.
Only the elect will understand, because they are humble. They do not want elevation, acclaim, prominence (except for Jesus’ sake). They don’t want fame or fortune; merely to do the will of God:
Like Jesus, they shun all the things of the world that are based on pride, self-seeking and lust. So, they are not contaminated by the world, but are cleansed by Jesus’ blood, and so they hear, perceive and respond to Elijah’s message.
Alex continued to relate the revelation he was given. He said:
I have often avoided using the term New World Order because false prophets have spread so many whacky concepts about it. But there is a new order of things emerging in the world. America is on the way down, and out. Soon she will fall to foreign powers, and another world power will rise to fill the vacuum.
Russia is already flexing her muscles. As I write (August) she has invaded Georgia, and wants more control in that region to push America and NATO out.
China is already well established economically in Africa and elsewhere, making sure she has her grip on supplies of materials for her burgeoning industry.
Britain’s economic woes intensify along with America’s, and it is only a matter of a short time before these nations go as has been prophesied. (See Revelations From God About The Judgement On Britain, and The Imminent Fall of America.)
Two pivotal dreams about the brevity of the time remaining cited two years for America and three years for Britain. Here are those accounts:
25th March 1999. H.
Dream of Chinese Attack
9th April 1999. M.
Dream of woman predicting Three years left in Europe
On August 12th, Alex wrote to me about three dreams he received:
Picking flowers. I saw many people picking flowers. The
flowers were full of lovely nectar.
I saw some pastor’s face with the number 666 written on it.
3. End of present world order. God also told me that the final decisions are being made that will bring to an end the present world order. It will soon be announced to the entire world, and the world will see this present order of things passing away.
There is only one dot preventing it occurring now. The dot represents some human beings creating complications.
We were advised in the dream to be watchful, and keep an eye on current events, because things are taking place hidden from view. A merger or alliance is going to occur between many Christian bishops, pastors and ministers, instigated by the devil. It is a technical merger, not real unity.
Comment: The ecumenical movement seemed to have died a death. But then, so did the image of the beast in Revelation 13:14-15. For some ‘political’ (power-sharing) motive of expedience, religious leaders make deals with others who hold power to gain influence. It is corrupt, unbiblical, and an abomination to God. But it will be part of the last resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire in Europe, which will hold sway over much of the world for a time.
There will be many martyrs for Jesus in the few years ahead of us now — in Europe; in America; in Britain; and in other countries of the world. Notice:
In the new order of things coming in the world, a government will take over in Europe, labelled “the beast”, who also depicts the President in dual symbol- ism. He will appear benign and have popular appeal, but from God’s perspective his motives are bestial True Christians will be persecuted and even tortured and put to death in the austerity to come. Who would believe these horrors are a mere three years or so away?
God cares for all His children, but unfortunately His children don’t care for Him to the same degree. So, although God would want to protect each one, they need to endure to be purified, as the text above alludes.
Likewise, some will be martyrs for the powerful witness and convicting results in others that their deaths will instigate. We read of a massive harvest coming to God during this 3½ years of Tribulation (Rev 7:9-14). These people will all have heard Elijah’s message warning of the dire results of ignoring God’s call to repentance. Having done just that at first, and finding themselves in unprecedented trouble, they will turn to God in their desperation, repent, and be converted.
This part of Elijah’s work, conducted by MM in restoring the truth in written form, will be followed by the next phase — the two witnesses (Rev 11). Their outspoken witness will last the duration of the Great Tribulation, for 3½ years, right up until Jesus returns.
Of this hellish 3½ years, we have reminders not to fear death:
Elijah finishes his task. Then God’s judgement rapidly intensifies upon the remainder of rebellious mankind, who adamantly refuse to repent no matter what God does to encourage them to do so (Rev 16).
God destroys those who kill God’s people. He gives them blood to drink! (Rev 16:6); scorches them with the sun (16:8,9); gathers earth’s armies to Armageddon to face utter annihilation! (16:16); throws down the mountains (16:20); and hurls down massive hailstones weighing a hundredweight each! (16:21.)
In Ethiopia, Kassahun received this dream on 17th July 2008 about this terrifying world upheaval:
The earth appeared to be heaving up and down. It was violently vomiting up. Buildings were crumbling. People were running everywhere, screaming in fear.
Elijah’s call is for people to repent, to avoid suffering this fate. But most will not.
When obdurate rebels stood against God’s Work of MM in Kenya, they were blown out of the way. Some were struck down and died (related in When God’s Judgement Falls). Elijah meted out that fate to the army commanders who came against him (2 Kings 1). And the two witnesses will do so equally supernaturally (Rev 11:5).
Kennedy in Kenya was given a dream of more people being struck dead who come against us:
