1, 2000 has come and gone and with it the much-
anticipated Y2K factor. The non event has left many,
especially skeptics, wondering what, if anything,
happened. Was Y2K a real threat or was it mere hype,
orchestrated by merchants and governments to achieve
their own political and selfish purposes? While
fallout from the Y2K controversy continues, one fact
is certain: Y2K was a wake-up call for Yahweh's
December 31, 1999 approached, those of us at Gertrude
Ministries kept our spiritual eyes and ears tuned.
For the most part, all was quiet on the watch. We had
prepared like many for what might be a few days or
weeks of camping out. We had water stored, extra
provisions, and enough wood on hand to keep warm
around our wood stove. Late in the afternoon of
December 31, we went out on errands for the last time
in the old millenium.
post office, my spirit was arrested when I sighted a
license plate that read: NOMORE. I
pondered the message as we drove to the supermarket.
On the way, I saw another license plate that read: NOMERCY.
Both messages spoke deeply to my spirit the remainder
of the day.
evening came and with it, New Year's Eve. While
others were out celebrating, we gathered for prayer.
We sought a word from Yahweh concerning what might
eventuate as midnight struck. No sooner did we ask,
then Yahweh gave us Ezekiel 7.
always found Yahweh to be on time, and true to the
word He gave Ezekiel many years ago, the end is truly
come upon this evil generation. The message of
Ezekiel 7 could not have been clearer nor more
appropriate as we witnessed the end of the twentieth
century. This passage of scripture will be etched
upon our spirits for some time, as a testimony of
Yahweh's faithfulness to speak to us in the time of
His pending judgment. After sharing this word, we
went to sleep with no alarm in our spirits concerning
new millenium arrived without incident- or at least
any apparent incident- can
be counted as the mercy of Yahweh. We know many
believers, including ourselves, were on the prayer
watch. We also know many, including ourselves, had
shared seasons of fasting throughout the preceeding
months. While many were scoffed and ridiculed for
taking the Y2K threat seriously, we know all too well
the warnings of our Heavenly Father. We know His
judgments are in the land and Y2K would have been a
convenient opportunity for crisis for those
orchestrating the global system. Like Babel of old,
people desire to 'ascend into the heavens', i.e. gain
power and knowledge. They also desire 'one language.'
What is the computer but a grand information highway
that affords people and nations that ultimate 'one
language' that spells 'New World Order?' Truly there
is nothing new under the sun. Though times change,
people and nations do not. The Luciferian government
continues to move toward its goal of global
aftermath of Y2K could prove to be more devasting
than its anticipation. Scriptures tell us 'the wise
will know and understand the times.' This is true.
For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, the
Y2K aftermath spells trouble of a different sort. We
are traversing a path that is both deadly and
deceptive, for massive destruction is coming.
It just isn't here yet. Do people still believe this?
Many do not. Those who were not totally convinced Y2K
was a problem, are even less convinced today that
there is still a real and present threat to the
security of our country. Many who do have faith but
counted on Y2K as being the millenium event that it
wasn't, are now disillusioned and confused. Some are
angry and even disappointed. Others have become
candidates for new skeptics, having turned on those
who continue to warn that we are not yet out of the
is that Y2k did have its affects and the complexities
of electronic communications have had their share of
unseen and little-reported problems. Ask the right
sources and learn that NASA, the Pentagon, the
Defense Department, and various airports have
experienced sizable problems. These gliches, of
course, were hidden well from the American public.
Few incidents of computer failures have been reported
by major news networks.
be accurate to say that crises seem to occur at all
the right times and places for all the right
purposes, depending on who's in charge. It behooves
each of us, therefore, to be prepared at all costs
for what might eventuate. We know Yahweh is sovereign
no matter what man might devise. We also know we are
living in the most awesome time of history, when the
governments of man shall fall and the government of
Yahshua Messiah will be established. For those of us
who have been working to establish Yahweh's kingdom,
we know we shall be spared the greater judgment of
Yahweh. For the rebellious, however, it is another
story. The tares (wicked) shall be removed. The
righteous alone shall remain. This is our consolation
and our rest. He who has called us shall preserve us.
Therefore, for those of us who are alive and remain,
it is a day of watchfulness. Noah, whose name means
'rest,' persevered despite fierce opposition in His
preparations for the day of Yahweh's judgment. Noah
was ridiculed and persecuted just as those in this
day who continue to warn of Yahweh's coming storm.
No, it is
not time to sit back and relax, thinking the danger
is past. The storm clouds are still on the horizon
and the day of the greater deception is here; for
many are falling away in disbelief that Yahweh's
storm is coming. Don't be a skeptic nor a fool. Your
life is at stake. Heed the word of Yahweh and
prepare, for the hour is late.- Mary
There are presently approximately 30 different
calendars being used simulataneously throughout the
world in order to calculate time. For this reason,
the understanding of the concept of time leaves room
for conjecture. It has been duly pointed out by many
writers that because there is no year '0', the new
millenium actually begins January 1, 2001. If this
observation is correct, the world may now start to
experience the delayed effects of Y2K.
