Psalm 1:1Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
We are like a tree planted in a dry and hostile land. What does a tree do to find water when the earth becomes dry? It shoots its roots down deeper looking for that water.
The Lord tells us that when our delight is in His law, and when we meditate on it day and night we are like a tree planted by streams of water. We yield our fruit in season, our leaf does not wither and whatever we do prospers. That is an impressive promise and this writer can testify to you that every Word of it is true.
Once again, what do we need to do? Stay in the Word of God.
3. Simplify our life: we will be happier with less. Less clutter, less distraction, less "stuff." We need to make peace again with the simple things in life. We should make up our minds to be satisfied in any situation. The Lord has provided in the past. The Lord is providing today, and the Lord will provide for us in the future.
4. Trust: in today's world which is spinning out of control we need to trust the Lord. He will take care of us. He knows everything that is going on. He has not forgotten anything. He has not overlooked some important detail in your life. We need to trust Him. We need to put our hand in His and let Him lead us forward even through territory that is unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Things are changing rapidly in this world and we must trust the Lord to guide us through every moment and every inch of territory that we need to cross..
Psalm 23:4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
These are the things this writer hears the Lord saying today. Grace and peace

|Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother|
Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him
I can say this, the Lord may not come back for us this year but never in this writer's life has he seen so many signs pointing to one season. The Lord has not spoken to me directly about any of this, although I cannot deny that my attention has been drawn like a magnet to what is happening in the skies above. Has this magnetic draw of my attention toward the heavens been the Lord's work? I guess we'll find out. "Look up" was the command given to us when "all these things begin to happen." What is this writer doing today? He is looking up. What has been written here today is what this writer sees.
The Lord has made me painfully aware that I am full of many faults and shortcomings. This writer does not consider himself wise, learned or in any way insightful. Anything of value that might be found in the writing here is the result of the work of the Spirit of God. This writer understands that. For the rest of the valueless drivel written here you have this writer to blame.
Why, you ask, has brother D written about these things if he is not sure that any of it will happen?
Not that this writer considers himself to be anything other than a brother in Christ who sees danger coming. What should a brother do when he sees danger coming? Warn the people..
Keep the faith, grace and peace.

It's starting and we haven't even made it half way into June yet...The earth is not the only celestial body being influenced by the incoming objects, then sun is feeling it too. When you hear "never seen anything like that before" from NASA types, you know something special just happened. Not that I respect their opinion much, but they are the primary disinformation specialists regarding whats coming at us in space and when they admit this was "special" that tells you something.
As we get closer to August, expect to see more events like this but in future days expect to see the plasma that fell back into the sun this time, instead reach escape velocity and if its headed our way, well...the earth will feel it in a big way.
What does all this have to do with Christianity you ask? Here's your answer:
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various
places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
So when all these things begin to happen, stand and
look up, for your salvation is near!
What do you see when you "look up?" Well, you are looking toward heaven right? Where is all the real end time action starting? In the heavens. Where is Jesus going to meet us? In the clouds. Where are the clouds? In the heavens. Where are the sun, stars and moon?
Luke 21:25 ... “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves
They are in the heavens.
It has been written here frequently in recent days that 3 comets are inbound to earths near vicinity. I suspect that as these three comets get closer, if all hell begins to break loose on earth, it will all be called one big coincidence by all those living in denial today. I will know, and you will know that if things deteriorate markedly it will be anything but a coincidence.
Where should we be looking today for the signs of the times we are living in?
grace and peace

|Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great|
endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses
I hope you are getting the message the Lord is sending to us....patience, endurance, perseverance. That's what its going to take to win the race we are running. What happens when people start picking dates for the rapture out of thin air, then nothing happens? People lose hope, they become impatient, their endurance fades. So its bad to name dates especially when we know that the Bride does not know when the Bridegroom is coming back for her.
The Bride is waiting and ready, knowing that the Bridegroom is coming back for her but she does not know when. We are that Bride. We must be mentally prepared to wait with great strength, patience and endurance for our Bridegroom to come back for us with a shout and take us to the Father's house.
An escape from all is coming, and it IS pre-tribulation. That's a fact. When before the tribulation none of us knows for sure.
As I look toward this fall, I see 3 different comets inbound, the first arrives close to earth on August 15th (comet Honda), then ELE-nin in Sept/Oct and Levy in Jan 2012. I see the entire world aligning itself against Israel right now in preparation for a Sept UN resolution to divide Jerusalem. The economic woes facing this world are epic and getting worse by the day. Earth troubles are mounting with tornadoes, flooding, famine, heat waves, crop failures, massive animal die offs, volcanoes going off, 6 mile long cracks in the earth spitting out lava http://www.fox11az.com/news/world/123179753.html, sink holes, fires in Arizona and the list goes on and on and on.
If all that were not enough this world is saturated with sin. How much more corrupt could this world's politicians be? How much more immoral could the people be? How much more worldly could people be? Where is the love of God and truth and honesty and fair dealing? Where is righteousness and thirsting for justice? The Lord is long suffering, we know that but I imagine that this world is pushing the outer boundaries of that patience. How much worse is todays world than even Sodom and Gomorrah?
This letter was written to you today to encourage you to be ready for the rapture at a moment's notice AND to be ready to wait for years for the Lord's return. Be encouraged. Take this life one day at a time, pray, be strong, keep the faith.
My opinion, and its just my opinion is that starting in August things are going to get dicey here on earth. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Grace and peace.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
What is the Lord saying to the churches today? What this writer hears comes directly from Psalm 34:
1. His praise must be continually in our mouth.
2. Seek peace and pursue it.
One of the greatest gifts the Lord gives us is our peace and quietness. In the midst of a raging world, we have inner peace and quietness. We are given this gift as something we can enjoy but it is also something that is necessary for our walk with the Lord.
... Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.
|Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;|
give thanks to him and praise his name
This world appears to be coming apart at the seams. What can we do? We can seek peace and pursue it. We can keep His praise in our mouth at all times. We can pray. We can stand on the Word of the Lord as if it were fact, because it is fact. What God has said is more real than any humans perceived “reality.” Let God be true and every man a liar.
Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar.
These are the things this writer hears the Lord saying today. Grace and peace

|Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.|
|Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about|
to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.
In addition to watching and praying, we need to be listening for the Lord's voice:
Rev 2:7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
11He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
17He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh 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 knoweth saving he that receiveth it
And the Lord says the same thing to all the churches....
Why is it so important to hear what the Spirit is saying today? As events in the world become more extreme, it will become more important for us to hear the Lord's voice. He is the commander, we are His servants. When He gives a command, we need to hear and obey instantly.
I have been asking the Lord why it is He did not place more end time detail in His Word for us. His answer was something to the effect that we need to listen to the Spirit's voice for the million and one different details necessary for the infinitely different things we each need to do-as individuals. What I need to do, when I need to do it, where I need to go, and when I need to go there are going to be completely different for me than it will be for you. Details were left out to make us completely dependent on our relationship with the Lord for everything we really need in our day to day lives.
No hearing the Spirit's voice means we are completely lost and adrift in this world. The Lord speaks to us in a small, still, quiet voice so if we want to hear Him we need to adjust ourselves, quiet ourselves, seek Him, persist in inquiring of Him etc. The end result is a strong relationship based completely on seeking the Lord.
This requires patience, faith and trust. The Lord speaks to us in many different ways at many different times. His sheep know His voice. We must be able to discern the Lord's voice from all the background noise in this world.
This fall it appears that more earth destruction is coming. I have written to you about the incoming comets as one example of what I see coming. It should not be a surprise that this fall severe earth changes might take place, look around you right now! If this fall is only an extension of what has been happening since Jan 1, 2011 then this world is in for a beating.
The Lord could come back for us today or He may tarry for years. It is for us to have great endurance and patience to watch and wait and listen until He does come for us.
These are the thoughts this writer believes the Lord has impressed upon him over the past few days. Keep the faith, grace and peace.
