What are General Orders?
While a member of the US Army, I had to memorize several sections of what is
called the Uniform Code of Military Justice. One of the items to memorize was
called, “ the general orders of duty’. The purpose of the “general order” was to
define for the individual a general framework to follow in situations where you
might be cut off from leadership and situations that may not be defined in any
specific terms. The general orders created a structure to allow for quick and
decisive action in these situations, thus creating stability out of what would
otherwise be a situation of chaos and uncertainty.
The Lord, in His Word, has also left us with the same safety net of general
orders specific for the “Church Age” as well as those that will be alive and
endure the “end time” events leading to the return of Christ.
Fighting for peace?
Throughout our history even in the “Church Age” many men of God have
prayerfully taken up arms to defend their countries. One of the most inspiring
stories is that of a
pacifist turned into the most decorated war hero of the first world war, Sargent
Alvin York. A
born-again Christian, he fasted and prayed, seeking the Lord as to what he
should do about going
to war in the military. In his intimate faith and relationship with God, he
received his answer to
just go and lend to Caesar what is Caesar’ and to God what was God’s. In his
would serve as a regular member of the armed forces ready to do what ever he was
asked to do in
any given situation. He killed and captured more than any other individual
American in that war.
His motivation however, was always to preserve life. I believe there is
sufficient scripture to
support this kind of motivation and action. We have certainly experienced in
generation the same challenges to our faith in regards to war. But what about in
this last end time
scenario? There appears to be a very different reaction required by those
individuals, but why?
What is so different about the End Time situation from other
The difference in this end time scenario is the perception by the world toward
and anyone embracing Judeo-Christian values and beliefs. Never before in our
history has the
total blame for the world’s ills been placed solely upon Christians. In this end
Christians will bear the brunt of the rest of the world’s hostility toward
the expansion of Muslim terrorists, the word “fundamentalist” of any type, is
fast becoming the
red flag word for radical religious beliefs that justify violence to others. Of
course this is not true,
but as in the news-speak of George Orwell’s 1984 the term is associated as
terrorists by anyone
and anything. Fundamentalist is becoming synonymous with Terrorists.
Globalists actually have the influential power to direct the affairs of nations
and peoples of
varying beliefs. Pit one against another in a process of elimination and a
pattern of use will
eradicate all fundamentalist’s from the face of the earth. First Islam, then
Jews and Christians
which will soon be played out in global conflict. According to new age writers,
accountability religions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity must be eliminated
before a New
World Order can be fully implemented. In the book by H.G. Wells: “Open
Blueprints for a World revolution” the outline of this very strategy is offered
as a solution for
World Peace and unity. Many other New Age books have been written proclaiming
in particular the Christian faith as the root of the problems of the World.
History Repeats itself
As sheep the unbelieving masses are being herded to believe these lies. .Prior
extermination of the Jewish people of Europe, the so called “Priority of Sion,”
document revealing a global Jewish plot to rule the world was believed in much
against the Jews of Nazi Germany. Globalist’s are using the term
“Fundamentalist” as the new
danger to world peace. The Islamic Koran includes this violent belief system
with a history of
violence, intolerance and the murder of innocent people to prove it.
Judaism and Christianity
Of the three accountability religions Islam is unquestionably the bad boy of the
three and the
first to be dealt with by the NWO. The Old Testament would appear to bear this
activity without understanding the “Two seed blood line” of human and serpent.
without this understanding would appear to have a case against Judaism. However
Biblical understanding this is not true. The Church history which includes such
events as the
Holy Roman Empire with the Crusades and Spanish inquisition, or the later Salem
burnings or even later, English Imperialism spurned on by the belief of “British
would also appear to have the same history.
Unlike Islam, the actual scriptures of the Old and New testament are in direct
conflict to these
human interpretations and actions. Man under his own understanding,
scriptural texts by their ungodly actions of violence. The real church was only
contained within the Holey Roman empire and not the actual empire themselves.
in all of these situations also suffered and died as they proclaimed the true
meaning of scripture
in opposition to the actions done by these hypocrites. Unfortunately, history
records these events
as being done by the so called “Church” at the hand of so called Christians.
This same pattern is
going to be repeated again in America, but you do not have to succumb to this if
your general orders.
General Orders in the Church Age:
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the
word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Rev 12:11 (KJV)
In context, this scripture follows the events of Satan losing a war in heaven as
dying on the cross. The accuser of the brethren (Satan) is cast into the earth
and his angels with
him. In the Greek here it literally means, “on dry land amongst men.” Suddenly
we have a
population explosion of everything rebellious to God in the angelic realm now
existing in various
forms amongst men on earth! This is the very beginning of what is called the
“time of the
gentiles” or the “Church Age”. It is in this context that these orders are
The Power of the Blood
They overcame the wrath of Satan by the blood of the Lamb. This Blood speaks of
redemption power Jesus accomplished on the cross. Looking at this blood letting
in a term of
physics, it was the act of undoing a paradox that was created in the Garden of
Eden. Not too well
understood by many Christians is the fact that there was a literal physical
separation as well as
the spiritual separation between man and God. On the physical plane a rift in
the space time
continuum created two dimensions. God’s eternal realm and the fallen linear
was added to our physical linear existence as part of this great fall. (Lev
17:11) The eternal state
does not include blood. (1 Co15:50) Christ’s shed blood on the cross represents
a kind of
opposite manner of the Eden experience, which reversed that paradox.(Rom5:19)
sacrifice literally repaired this rip in space and time on the spiritual plane
and with the return of
Christ the physical will be restored to just one.
This separation both physical and spiritual is called sin , which was an archaic
meaning to miss the mark. Understanding the mechanical aspects of this
separation creates the
logical understanding that the fallen dimension is a place not based on being
good or bad as
works has nothing to do with it, but rather knowing we are stuck here with only
one way out.
Accepting Christ then is the only dimensional bridge back to the intended
creation. The blood of
the lamb makes each person as they become “Born Again” and touched by His Spirit
this dimensional difference.
This gives a supernatural hope and expectation to something more than just this
The shed blood then makes the believer aware of this difference without knowing
physics behind it. This act could only be accomplished by God alone, He being
fully man and
yet God in the flesh. The power of the blood of the lamb is the power of a sense
of newness an
hope and the realization of belonging to a better dimension...eternity with the
one who loves and
created us. That revealed knowledge gives the believing individuals the power to
horrible global events around him or her and even the mundane things in our
daily life here in
this fallen dimension..
The Word of their Testimony
Each one who crosses over spiritually into this act of being “Born Again”
experiences on the
spiritual plane an awareness of a dimensional change. Nothing looks the same,
feels the same or
is the same again, as you and your perception of the world around you is forever
personal process leading to that moment of decision becomes our personal story
or, the Word of
your Testimony. In it’s simplest form it is like the words to Amazing Grace
taken from the
testimony of the blind man given back his sight. “Once I was blind but now I
While researching and reading a very deceptive book about the UFO/ Alien Agenda
very hostile toward a Biblical perspective, I wondered for a moment, (or rather
was maybe told in a whisper by the enemy) what if this could be true and you are
sudden fear came upon me that was instantly removed. What happened was
remembering a hot
day in July of 1974 as I was in my living room praying for the first time in my
life . I was asking
Jesus to come into my heart for the first time. In that very moment only what I
could describe as
something like a warm blanket of love floated over my whole being. I cried like
a baby feeling
like I did when I came home from the Army in 1970. I suddenly knew beyond my own
senses that God was my Father, there was no more fear of what awaited beyond
death. I felt clean
and new. That my dear reader was the Word of my testimony that overcame the lies
faith as sophisticated as they were. In this remembrance of my testimony I
back like a rubber band to a reality the world could never understand.
Loved not their lives even unto the death
Equipped with this mental and spiritual realization we have the strength to obey
the last part of
this general order. It is the fact that we may be called upon to die because of
our faith. The ability
to do this is in our focus. As we understand that there is a better place of
existence called eternity,
and knowing that this present linear mortal life is going to end we also realize
that we will not
create heaven on earth in this dimension, it is not our job nor God’s will, it
is going to burn up
and come to an end. Our only order is to remain faithful and overcome this
present system. To
further spiritualize this idea, we should as the Apostle Paul put it, “ die
daily” to our old ways
and habits that reflect this present world system and gather the power and
awareness of the new
world to come and it’s reality. Our spiritual focus to overcome the ways and
manners of this
world, is our most general order, promise and hope.
Specific End Time application of the General Orders.
In the unusual time of a persecution of the Church we have two actual options or
choices and I
believe in context that they are presented as options. Our choice is not
contingent to salvation,
but it does determine the outcome of our mortal life and the potential we are
given to fulfill the
will of God through us in this time. American Christians should take a special
heed to these
“ If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall
go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” Rev 13:9-10 (KJV)
In this text, the easiest part to understand is the fact that if you depend on
weapons to defend or
aggressively pursue the coming threats, know that you will die in the same
manner. I truly
believe this is an option and not a condition based on your personal eternal
salvation. The option
being, your level of faith and patience to be all that you can be as a servant
of Christ or mush less
by settling for second best at the cost of your life. Pick up a gun and fight or
and minister until you die. The choice is truly ours to make with the outcome
known ahead of
time. The assurance is that you are still His either way.
The second part may not be so easily understood. To lead into captivity and be
could be understood in this manner in which I feel the Lord has described to me.
The events that will soon surround us someday are unconditionally predestined
ones which are
the fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy. Our patience as Bible believing followers
of Christ is to not
get caught up with the temporal passions of these events but to see past them
and look to the
eternal promises. If we get caught up with the active and aggressive involvement
to resist destiny,
we certainly are not going to change that which has been ordained by God, no
matter how evil or
destructive it might be from our perspective. In the process of trying to change
what cannot be
changed, the only thing that will be changed is ourselves. We are in a sense
trying to seize or capture
the events to our desire and will, and not the ultimate will of God. We then
become the captives
by our own earthly devices because we are actually working against what will be.
His will can only leave us frustrated , bound up and led by anger.
Am I saying that you cannot defend your family? Certainly not. I think the
compassion of God is
quite clear here that with the many coming challenges that will be put before
us, there is this
option and decision we can make depending on our Faith. We are still his and
whatever level or
degree of Faith we can exercise, we do it unto the Lord.. Just as Sgt.Yorks
motivation was to
preserve life, we should let that banner of love preside over each and every
situation. It is a
personal relationship with very specific personal events that will befall us
all. The bottom line to
all of this, is to guided by the general Orders provided by the Word of God and
led in a personal
application by His Spirit.
The results will be that every situation will take care of itself.
The Promise of keeping the General Order
Be an Over comer!
Rev 2:7-21, 21:7
To him that overcomes...
1. ...will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the
paradise of God..
2. ...shall not be hurt of the second death.
3. ...will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone,
and in the stone a
new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it.
4. ... and keeps my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they
be broken to
shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.
5.the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name
out of the book of
life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6.will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and
I will write upon
him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new
cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
7.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.
8.shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
“If any man have an ear, let him hear.” Rev 13:9
You cannot change what is destined to happen:
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be
filthy still:...even so come Lord Jesus. The grace of out Lord Jesus Christ
be with you all Amen.” Revelation 22: 11p,20p,21
In the closing days ahead, remember your general orders and allow the Holy
personalize each situation and personal application so that you can "Be all that
you can Be".
