The first traces of the Water/Ice Bucket Challenge began in April of 2014, but this caught on like wildfire around June of 2014. YouTube and Facebook exploded with young and old participants, including celebrities, immersing themselves in water and ice. This challenge was supposed to be in the name of ALS; Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. ALS is often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease. According to the ALS Association, it is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS patients eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
What seemed to be innocent fun, and a harmless challenge to friends and family, is actually more sinister than people realize. This is why it is extremely important to be led by the Holy Spirit, because He will guide us into all truth so that we will not be deceived. The Holy Spirit will help us to see the snares that the Enemy has set before us. It is the Light of Jesus that allows us to see in the dark. Satan is very good at hiding things in plain sight. We have to have the Holy Spirit in these last days so that we will not be led astray. The truth about this Water/Ice Bucket Challenge is very disturbing, but very true. This is the revelation that the Lord gave me:
Matthew 3:1-3, “In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: A voice of one calling in the wilderness. Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.”
Before Jesus came on the scene, the world was under the “Law”. There was no grace. Mary and Elizabeth were both given great callings on their lives because they would both give birth to sons that would change the course of the world forever. In Luke 1:41, it says, “And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb, And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.” The baby that Elizabeth was carrying, in her womb, was John the Baptist. Not only was Elizabeth filled with the Holy Spirit, but so was John the Baptist. God anointed John to prepare the way for the Messiah; the Savior of the World.
People went out to John the Baptist from Jerusalem, and all Judea, and the whole region of the Jordan; confessing their sins. They were baptized by him in the Jordan River (Matt. 3:5). Matthew 3:11, “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. John the Baptist prepared the hearts of mankind for the arrival of Jesus Christ through the baptism of water. The water baptism was a purification that took place to usher in Jesus Christ so that He could begin His mission in the Earth.
The Water/Ice Bucket Challenge is also a type of baptism; a purification for mankind. The truth is, this is a satanic ritual that is preparing the way for the Antichrist to begin his mission in the Earth. The rise of the beast, spoken of in Revelations 13:1, is the Antichrist system. This system is composed of The New World Government System, The New World Monetary System, and The New World Religion System. All of these systems are already underway. The Antichrist will bring about the Seven Year Great Tribulation.
Interestingly, Cory Griffin, one of the men that started the Water/Ice Bucket Challenge, died in a diving accident back in August. We are in the last days people! The rapture is going to happen very soon. Everyone that truly follows Christ bears the light of Jesus; even those that have died in their faith. When Jesus comes to rapture the Bride, the light will be removed from the Earth; as well as His grace. Once the Bride is gone, darkness will prevail like never before. It is time to get right with the Lord now while His grace is still here. There is coming a time of great darkness that the world has yet to experience since the creation of Earth.
It amazes me to see how a lot of the churches are quiet. The reason being is because they can’t see what is going on spiritually. Please come out of this world, and come to Christ. Live honestly before Him. Many will think that they are going in the rapture, but will be disappointed. Jesus is coming for a Bride without spot or wrinkle. This means, He is coming for a Bride that is truly serving Him and following Him; whose lifestyle honors Him. We do not want to be Left Behind after the rapture takes place. We have to examine ourselves daily before the Lord; asking Him to remove everything that is within us that is not of Him.
If you have participated in this Water/Ice Bucket Challenge, ask the Lord for forgiveness. He will not punish you for something you didn’t know. He will forgive you! We must pay close attention in these last days! Jesus is soon to come!
