The Day of Reckoning is Upon Us

By Aaron Hermann

Late last night I was settling in and trying to fall asleep when I felt the power of the Lord fall upon me. I felt a tremendous surge in the spirit and the Lord then gave me the following word.

Tell my people, "The day of reckoning is upon us."

Some folks the Lord works with receive eloquent prophetic messages that go on for paragraph after paragraph. The Lord does not work with me in such a manner, and it is generally a sentence or two or an impression.

Upon waking this morning the Lord repeated His instruction to deliver His word, and I pressed in to seek Him as to what else I was supposed to say or how to say what it was He has given me to share.

He led me to the definitions below, and revealed to me how they apply to us individually and collectively as a nation. An important note, this phrase is sometimes used to refer to the final Judgment of God upon all those who have ever lived. This is NOT what I am referring to in this post.

(I live in the United States and while I believe the collective portion of this word may be applied to all nations as none will escape the coming chaos, I believe that this word has a very special meaning to the United States as a country as it was created as the "new Atlantis" as the land from which "the beast" will rise.)

Merriam Webster and Harper Collins English Dictionary define the "Day of Reckoning" as

: a time when the consequences of a course of mistakes or misdeeds are felt

"Day of Reckoning." Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 25 Sept. 2013.

We have recently passed the season of Yom Teruah (New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Bob wrote a very timely and important post on the topic, and I believe his words on the matter speak very loudly and clearly pertaining to personal accountability in this season as judgment continues to manifest.

Another Yom Teruah has arrived. I would like to celebrate with a light heart but can not. Judgment is manifest.

This marks the anniversary of my Lord's birth, 2014 years ago. Yom Teruah aka Rosh Hashanah can be loosely described as what both Christmas and New Years Day pretend to be, in my culture. When the day of shouting or blowing (as trumpets) was initiated as a holy day it was looking forward as prophetic. I believe there's still a prophetic aspect, in that it has not yet been entirely fulfilled, but much of it is now a memorial, fulfilled in Y'shua's birth. What is today, right now today, September 8th, and what is coming over the next few years has a root in what happened at His birth, when judgment was incurred and executed shortly afterward. That aspect of judgment is an essential truth that has been very effectively hidden from most, and I'll explain more about that at the end of this message.

Today marks the turning of the first into the second year of this Shemittah in what is a very special season. Judgment is evident. What I am seeing unfold right now is very disturbing. There's all the stuff going on out in the world, of course, with the beating of war drums and the rising of nations (ethnos) against nations (ethnos), but what I'm talking about is seeing the saints losing their struggles. I see failures of the past catching up with folks. We all need mercy but the limits appointed for this are quite real. What has been overlooked or winked at in the past is no longer being tolerated. The forfeit of reward is a reality where there is no “grace period” or recovery opportunity extended. This time has come, and I believe these Days of Awe for Teshuva or repentance leading up to Yom Kippur (that are attended to by some who practice according to familiar forms of Judaism) should be considered seriously by some of us as a personal model. Repent. Pray for each other in the fear of God. Submit to each other in a right way, according to the biblical direction as received through and directed by the holy spirit. Pray that your faith will not fail in time of testing...

I interact with some folks who are ever learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. (Read 2 Timothy 3.) This blog and ministry of the open scroll has some popularity, but it's not at all a popular work at the core. I understand it as a Bride prep work, part of a work that is specifically to a very small number. While many more may receive some benefit, most will only get the best benefit through what is going to be accomplished by the Bride, who is being prepared for sacrifice on their behalf. This is as it must be.

I see how many saints even among this blog's readers are still running to and fro, struggling to try to figure out where the “good stuff” really is, merging a little of this with a little of that, and for some this is a good and necessary process, but what needs to be called to the attention of some others is that there remains an ignoring and dismissing of what I've routinely described as the core of this ministry work. Failure to attend to matters of gender propriety and the matter of coming to know the times and what they really mean will disqualify many of us. I'm convinced time has just about run out on this season of preparation and various “training ops.” You will not be able to say you were not warned in advance...

Yom Teruah has Arrived, with Judgment and Accountability

Have you felt the crushing agony of the Lord's conviction calling you to repentance for indulging the flesh? If so, did you heed the call and come before the King of Glory with a contrite heart and honest confession, owning up to who and what you are in the flesh? Did you seek His mercy and aid, or did you simply go about your business content that who you are, and where you are in your walk is "good enough?"

The path we are called to walk is a very narrow one with few fellow travelers. The narrow path is a steep uphill climb of affliction and suffering as we are required to crucify the flesh and walk in the spirit. Apart from the grace of God this walk is impossibly hard. Make no mistake about it; this path will ultimately cost you your life, but it is the life we are called to live if we are to abide in the Lord and follow His example.

5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— 13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
~ Romans 8:5-17

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. 17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. 19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
~ Galatians 5:16-25

In the strength of our flesh, which is no strength at all, this whole thing is impossible, but in the spirit with the Lord's help and provision we can succeed as overcomers. For those of us who abide in the Lord and walk in the spirit it will come to pass that all we were asked to sacrifice and everything we were required to pay will prove to be a ridiculously small pittance compared to the glory that will be revealed to us as reward for laying down our lives in the service of the Lord Jesus Christ Y'shua HaMashiach.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. ~ Romans 8:18-19

6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; 9 but just as it is written,

“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard,
And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”

10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
~ 1 Corinthians 2:6-16

In the days ahead only the Spirit of the Lord will be able to sustain us through all that we will face. The flesh is woefully inadequate and completely incapable of sustaining us through anything. The Lord has been performing a crucially important work during this prolonged season in advance of the major changes and chaos that will soon be upon us. He has been carrying out an intense period of testing, refinement and preparation so that His people's faith will not fail them so that they may be able to stand in the trying days ahead.

For those of you who were convicted, sought the Lord, repented, and felt the sting of His discipline during this remarkable season I rejoice with you dear brothers and sisters! For it is written,

12Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3 For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; 5 and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons,

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor faint when you are reproved by Him;
6 For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines,
And He scourges every son whom He receives.”

7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? 8 But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

12 Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.

14 Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled; 16 that there be no immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 17 For you know that even afterwards, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.
~ Hebrews 12:1-17

As Bob wrote in his post, there is a definite limit to the Lord's mercy and willingness to treat sin in the flesh with a "wink and a smile." The time to find the Lord in repentance is quickly passing, and for some it may have passed already. The words, "he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears", should put the fear of God in all of us.

It is my sincerest prayer that none of you for whom this word was intended end up rejected with no place for repentance. I pray that those of you in need of the Lord's discipline receive it and rejoice in it knowing that He is working with you in such a way as He does with those whom He receives as sons!

As important as word is on the personal level it is equally as important that we look at it from the perspective of a nation under judgment. For those of you, who are still under the impression that this country was ever anything more than an important piece of the Illumined elite's plan to bring forth the beast of Revelation and aid in the formation of a global satanic world order, please view these amazing videos by Chris Pinto.

The simple fact of the matter is that this country was never founded on biblical principles and was never a land created with the ultimate aim as a land dedicated to serving the One True God. The end of this nation as we know it is near. The United States of America has had from its inception a "secret destiny", and that destiny will soon be manifest.

With this context in mind, let's look at another definition of the day of reckoning.

Noun 2. day of reckoning - an unpleasant or disastrous destiny

Day of reckoning - an unpleasant or disastrous destiny; "everyone was aware of the approaching doom but was helpless to avoid it";

"That’s unfortunate but it isn't the end of the world",
Doom, doomsday, end of the world

Destiny, fate - an event (or a course of events) that will inevitably happen in the future - Day of Reckoning - Based on WordNet 3.0, Farlex clipart collection. © 2003-2012 Princeton University, Farlex Inc.

The time for America's collapse and subsequent rebirth as part of the global beast system is soon, but not yet. For those of you still seeking to know the times of such things, I direct your attention to America: Rushing Across the Threshold of Daniel Eight - Part I and America: Rushing Across the Threshold of Daniel Eight - Part II. Bob and I are continuing to press in so that we may be found serving the proper food at the proper time. We are in a rather remarkable season as the Holy Spirit is on the move throughout His people and continues to bring forth insight into the nature and times of possible future events. I invite you to continue to watch with us as we continue the ongoing work here and on The Open Scroll.

With what precious little time is left I urge you press in and seek the Lord so that you may receive all that He has for you. Please, dear brothers and sisters whatever the Lord has put in your grasp reach out and get it! I pray that the Lord refreshes, renews, and strengthens those of you whom He is calling in this late hour that you may opt-in for whatever He intends for you and be a worker in His harvest field.

I would like to leave you with the precious prayer of our brother the Apostle Paul.

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
~ Ephesians 3:14-21

Love and blessings in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Y'shua HaMashiach.
