War On The Saints… Revelation 13

(Greetings and happy 2018 to all of my readers. The LORD saw fit to impose upon me, a month long writing fast,(Through a painful medical ordeal) . My situation is presently  all good my brothers and sisters, I give God  thanks for your prayers, I believe I am in much better shape than I was at the beginning of November.

I am on the mend and hopefully ready to cry out, or to teach, or warn…whatever God wants of me in the allotted time I have left, I covet your prayers for my health, and for my stamina and continuance in ministry. )


And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; 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, and them that dwell in heaven.  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, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:4-8)

And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;  Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.(Daniel 7:20-22)

I sought the LORD for the most significant subject to address in view of the oncoming year, 2018. I then received the phrase,” war on the Saints”. We are all undergoing, whether we believe and acknowledge or not, a tremendously intense level of Spiritual warfare such as never seen before in History.

The Bible tells us that this intensive, high level spiritual warfare would be one of the characteristics of the last days. The book of  Revelation warns us that in the very last times, the Abyss, i.e. “the bottomless pit” will be opened and the earth will be inundated by a locust like Demon invasion, sent to torment all men. Paul warns us that in the last days demons will be teaching people doctrine and that those doctrines would even infiltrate the church, causing many to fall away.

God is allowing evil to come out into the open and to have a last Hurrah,  a final opportunity to fully manifest itself, in the sight of all men, offering to fallen and deceived and Christ rejecting mankind the kind of “world order” that Satan and his evil Spirits have long promised, as an option to the promise of the Kingdom of God.

This is truly (their) Hour, and the power of darkness.

Thus shall Satan be given temporary permission to “Make war” on the Saints,(The Holy People), and to overcome them…a seeming string of “victories”, for we are told that the the Dragon wears many crowns, (Revelation 12:3) and we shall realize soon, that all worldly power and influence is revealed to be at the service of the Beast, utterly turned over to it.

The Saints will have no worldly influence, they will be powerless to defend themselves when attacked in this world, and they will be impotent to set the record straight when they are lied about, by the Synagogue of Satan. We must hold to the truth and patiently await the ultimate triumph of the Seed of the woman. In many cases we will win by losing,  for we “love not our lives unto death”.

It is time for we who love and profess Jesus in this world to realize the Spiritual warfare which wages about us, that we might engage properly. We need to see spiritually, and to think from a spiritual perspective.

Our war isn’ against flesh and blood, people are not our true enemies. We can pray for those who have set themselves against us, and overcome any evil they do against us , with good.

The adversary, Satan is now operating against the church, using people, social systems, institutions, technology, to convey his Philosophy, Empty Imaginations, vain reasonings, knowledge that exalts itself against the knowledge of God,  right into our thinking. With modern technology, there has never been a better time for Satan to do this, for what better way to convey “Images” than through our tablets and smart phones?

A child of (lets say)  ten is frequently given a little handheld portal to all of the knowledge, entertainment and teaching in the world! Frequently these things are handed over with little or no supervision. The technology represented by that “Smart Phone” exceeds the technology it took to land men on the moon! How are we going to supervise this opening, into our child’s mind?

Who is going to be there to counter the Satanic propaganda, the lies, the false and distorted imagery, the antiChristian narrative of current events, history and the lionization of vile people, at the same time as the frequent demonization of good people?

The War is on folks and it is non stop until the Messiah comes to crush the Serpents head! The Devil knows his time is short and that now is the time to seduce, cajole and deceive as many people as possible away fem God.

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.(Revelation 12:12)

    Glad to see you back and recovered. Wondered where you were. God bless!

  8. CSmith says:

    Praying that your health and ministry will continue unabated. You don’t know me, but two decades ago, I went to a church three or four miles away from yours. Unfortunately, the gospel of “mentoring,” i.e., Promise keepers was in vogue. I circulated your “An Open Letter to Bill McCartney,” and insisted that the most important mentor “to come along side” the believer is the Holy Spirit! A few understood, most didn’t.

  9. kim segar says:

    Our family loves you Bill as does G-d. we pray for you and need your teachings. and yes most of us know that G-d is letting evil rise to expose the devils plans. I pray more will get into G-dS Word and follow Him as if we love Him we will follow G-d not man. also says in John if you love ME, keep my commandments. so we pray for all and reach out to all who will listen and take heed. it is only G-ds word that is truth, HE is the Word, Shalom

  10. Tricia says:

    Sorry to hear you have been ill, adding my prayers to the others for your full recovery. I suspected something of the kind when I no longer received your blog emails. About your 2018 word, ‘war on the saints’, I also had prayed about 2018 and the Lord briefly showed me a snarling beast, and said “the gaping maw of the evil one” and “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; whom resist, stedfast in the faith” (1 Peter, v. 8, 9). So it looks like this coming year will be an interesting one. May God lead, guide, bless and protect us all.

  11. Gillian Dandy says:

    Praying for you Bill and your family for good health. I heard you in Winsford where I live a couple of months ago. I’ve just heard that the children of the CEO at Bethel Music are in intensive care. It’s not their fault ,I just pray their parents will listen to what The Lord is shouting out to them. The place is full of witchcraft. Will keep up my prayers for you. Your teaching is amazing. Bless you and your family. Xx

    Brother Bill, sending love – and prayers to heaven for your strength and perseverance “in the Lord”!
    There are so few men out there LEADING… true Shepherds feeding and caring for The Flock…
    So MANY of us ‘around the globe’ have been encouraged and strengthened in our faith due to your obedience to speak the Truth. Thank you for submitting yourself to Jesus as a living sacrifice for the sake of His Kingdom. ALL glory to Jesus, and how He is able to use His Saints as they submit to Him!! The gates of hell will not prevail against that; amen!! Do not grow weary in well-doing, for YOU will reap a harvest…. peace, love and strength “in Him” 🙂

    Dear Pastor Bill

    Pastor Randles,

    “The Devil knows his time is short and that now is the time to seduce, cajole and deceive as many people as possible away fem God.”

    I remember our dear brother Philip Haney commenting a few years ago that we will see “a massive download of deception” coming on this world. It is happening even now. We should daily be praying that we will be kept from the deception of the devil. It is so subtle at times. Not only is it targeting the church, but there are people in the church claiming to be Christ followers who are believing all sorts of foolish silly reports from unGodly sources. We must remember, as you have pointed out before, that the leaders of this world are not only political leaders and that farcical entity called the United Nations, but academia, entertainment, the media, and anyone else who has influence on people, including clergy. How in the world do those “Christians” believing the lies and deception think they are going to be able to resist the Anti-Christ, who is Satan incarnate? How can one claim to be following Christ when they don’t make time to read God’s word? We must be feeding daily on the Word of God.

    God bless and keep you, Pastor Randles! Your ministry so strengthens my faith. I am praying for your health and that the LORD would intercept the fiery arrows of the enemy.

  17. Maureen Leigh says:

    Wishing you a very good new year, I will be praying for you my dear brother Bill, Kristen too. You are dear to us here, 3 of us who fellowship together whenever we can. God will strengthen you, Hallelujah!

  18. Sue Ackerman says:

    Dear Pastor Bill, Please take care of yourself. We, the Body of Christ, need you! Thanks for all you do to keep us informed. Love and prayers for your health, Bob and Sue Ackerman, Hartwell, GA

  19. Sue Ackerman says:

    BTW, I just wanted you to know. I still read ALL of your posts!!

  20. Julie says:

    I’m sorry to hear you have had poor health Pastor Bill. Your teachings both blog and online videos are gold to me expouding insights into the times and God’s precious Word getting ever more precious. I really pray God helps you get better, for you, for your family and for the depth of blessing you bring me and others. Thank you for all you do so faithfully in these difficult personal times and world times.

  21. standingfirm says:

    Pastor Bill, This spoke directly to me to confirm what I have recently experienced is exactly as you say. “No wordly influence & powerless to defend themselves”. I recently ( Oct.) had a relative push me off a loved one’s will as a beneficiary. According to the state the will was probated in I was suppose to be notified by law. I did not even know this was going on until the probate was done. After the judge signed off on the “new” beneficiary did I receive the probate notice. This is against the law, yet no attorney’s office or even the Attorney General’s office seem to even care! This is against the law and yet no one wants to help me, so yes I can clearly see right now I am powerless to defend myself. I am more than sure I was lied about as well as I was called “greedy” just because my deceased loved one even put my name on their will! The Lord has greatly comforted me in His word about what He thinks with all of this. All I can say is, I would not want to be in the shoes of all who devised this scheme! The Lord is faithful to His own and we are “over comers” through Him! I pray that in 2018 the Lord will give you great health so you can continue in the ministry He has given you to do. I love all of my discernment minister’s and you are one of them!

      Standingfirm, I feel for you. However you are not alone. My niece was “helping” me to sort things out when my stepfather died. He was in a care home and she arranged for his money to be paid into a bank account for the care home. She made 2 payments and then transferred the money into her own bank account.
      Then when the council wanted payment she told them I had taken the money.
      I have been paying it monthly ever since, as I was the executor of his will it is up to me to pay it! (I was not aware of this at the time)
      I found a verse in the bible “Though I have stolen nothing yet I must repay it”
      This comforted me, but my sister and all the rest have nothing to do with me anymore!
      Jesus is Lord, He knows I am not guilty! God bless you

  22. God Bless YOU too! May your sister see the Truth; may your niece truly repent and tell you so, and may you be blessed “abundantly, beyond anything you could ask or think” In Jesus’ Name!
