Encouragement..The Escape..A Few...Scoffers

Psalm 32:7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Interesting words used there "Thou art my hiding place"....Our Lord is a very real refuge from the storm we see all around us. He shall preserve me from trouble, He shall compass me about with songs of deliverance. Who will deliver us, preserve us? He will.....

1 Peter 3:20 Who once were disobedient, when the patience of God ...
... who disobeyed long ago in the days of Noah, when God waited patiently while the ark was being built. In it a few, that is, eight persons, were saved by water.

Luke 17:26 "And just as it happened in the days of Noah,
... "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so itwill be also in the days of the Son of Man:

Noah had an ark, we have the Son of God. "in Christ" we are in the ark. The Lord promised us an escape from all that's about to happen. As the storm clouds move over us we get closer to the time of Jacob's trouble, more and more people will begin to wonder whether the Lord meant what he said when he declared:

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Those who are counting on the escape face a growing barrage of ridicule from the atheist, the godless and outright hate from the pre=wrath, post-trib crowd. I liken all of these people to those who stood around while Noah was driving nails and cutting boards for the Ark. They all stood around mocking and criticizing. Things won't be so funny though on the day the ark rises up above the earth and some of us are nowhere to be found.

Today I want to encourage you to walk in uprightness and righteousness with the Lord so you are found worthy of the escape that's coming. Satan and those who serve him go immediately after your faith by first creating doubt...."did God really say....?" Did God really say to pray for an escape from all that shall come to pass? Unless my eyes are deceiving me, YES he did tell us to pray for the escape. Is that being "escapist" YEA, IT IS.

There seem to be many people these days who believe that they need to go through the tribulation for one reason or another...maybe they do. We each need to be firmly convinced of what we believe because what we really believe will be tested.

The Lord told me years ago "we can do this the easy way or the hard way" referring to some changes in thinking and behavior on my part. The easy way is for us to engage our mind, willpower, heart and rear end to come into conformity with God's will. The hard way is for the Lord to impose external pressure on you to get you to the same place. Same destination, two different ways of getting there. Today there are people on the earth whose attention does not belong to the Lord..yet. There is a pressure cooker coming though, called the tribulation, that will burn off the impurities with fire and bring them "in Christ." These are known as the tribulation saints. For those living in todays pre-tribulation world, who are "in Christ," who have chosen the "easy way" of willingly and obediently following the Lord, its already mission accomplished if they continue "in Christ" up to the point in time of the escape. What difference is there between those who have died "in Christ" up till now, and those of us living today "in Christ?" If those who died before us "in Christ" did not go through "the" tribulation, give me a good argument for why we should? If never heard one yet, and I've heard about everything out there.

The pre-tribulation "escape" will be a double edged sword. On one hand, it will devastate the apostate church. The day however many of us "escape" and they don't what's going to happen? What happens the day all the apostate preachers and teachers are still here, and we are not? There will be widespread defection and destruction of so called christianity aided by the persecutions coming, aided by the great deception sent by the Lord himself to deceive those who refused to believe the truth. As history has proven, then as now a few will be saved through it all. It's always a remnant, its always a few that make it "in Christ" no matter how you want to look at it.

Romans 9:27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, "THOUGH THE NUMBER ...

Romans 11:5 In the same way then, there has also come to
... So it is at the present time: there is a remnant, chosen by grace.

I did'nt make this stuff up guys. Go to an online bible search engine and type in "remnant" but make sure you pack a lunch because you will see it over and over and over again.

What does that mean? Always a remnant? It means its always a FEW that "get it."

Matt 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

^^^^^that's what it means. Writing these things to you is the core of what the Lord has given me to do in this life. Remind you of what's already been written. The wrong time to be reminded of these things is after the escape, or after you die, whichever comes first.

I know much of what is written here is not pleasant to read, but my task is to put it out there. If one soul is turned away from their sin, what's that worth? Its priceless..beyond measure. Each soul is unbelievably precious.

Predictably, just as the bible said, scoffers are on the increase. Anyone who points to Jesus alone (which in fact is "the Word of God") is hated. We are not surprised by the hatred because if the master was hated to the point of being murdered, should we expect the people around us to dance a joyful jig when we come saying the same exact things that got our Master crucified?

This alone puts the messages preached at the "mega churches" into perspective. Mr. Joel Osteen goes out of his way to make sure there's nothing offensive to anyone in anything he says. Results? The largest so called christian church in America. Contrast the message of Osteen (and all those like him) to the message that got our Lord crucified...could they be any more different? One set of words leads to throngs worshiping you, the other set of words gets you killed. You figure it out....

Time is short guys. The coming reality for this world is stranger than fiction. I wonder if we'll be around for the soon coming day when "the powers that be" disclose to the world that alien life has been here on earth for quite some time. I wonder what it will be like when these things/superheroes/aliens/demons in disguise get wheeled out. I don't want to know, but that's what's coming. The bible clearly tells us that mens hearts will fail them from fear of seeing these things that are "coming on the earth."

Luke 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Coming on the earth? From where? ...for the powers of heaven (THE HEAVENS) shall be shaken. Outer space, that is, outside the earths atmosphere is where the heavens are.

We have before us both the carrot and the stick. We can choose what pleases our Lord today, or some can choose it later under a pressure that will melt the earth. Pray that you may be counted worthy of the escape from all that's coming and stand before the Son of Man.

A clue to the physical location of where we escape to: Where is the Son of Man? Answer: sitting at the right hand of the Father. Where is the Father? Answer: sitting on his throne in the highest heavens. Which means when you escape and are standing before him who sits at the right hand of the Father, you WON'T be here on earth....grace and peace

Misery Propaganda

I've noticed that CNN has really been doing its part to spread the misery around. Today the headline story is how the suicide hotlines are ringing off the hook. Yesterday the headline was about the guy in California that shot his entire family then himself after getting laid off. The media could report with a positive spin on things if they wanted to, but they don't want to...why not?

There's no question in my mind, because I've seen mountains of evidence, that the lamestream media is nothing more than a propaganda arm of the ultra rich in this world. The ultra rich also happen to be the ones pushing for the new satanic 'age of aquarius.' Fear, depression, and hopelessness are all being pumped out like sewage all over the world's population these days with the goal in mind of getting people so desperate, so on their knees, that when the man of sin makes his grand entrance, they'll be lapping at his feet for whatever scraps he decides to give them.

We have two choices, just like Peter did when he was walking on water with Jesus, we can give our attention to the storm or our Savior. If we give ourselves over to the storm by giving it all our attention, we will sink under the waves. Jesus will ask us like he asked Peter "why did you doubt?" A recurring theme this week (in my mind) has been that of testing. The pre-tribulation storm we are seeing is testing everyone to determine where people stand. Our faith is being tried today, how much more will it be tried in the days ahead? Without our faith we have nothing, absolutely nothing, which is why satan and his minions go after it with a vengeance. They love to ask "where is your God now?" If we do not stand on our faith we will not stand at all. Remember that our feelings are traitors. Our feelings and our faith are two seperate entities. It does'nt matter what you 'feel' what matters is what you really believe, which is what you have faith in.

Here are some promises I have tried and tested to be worth more than gold:

Psalm 37
3 Hope in the Lord, and do good; and dwell on the land, and thou shalt be fed with the wealth of it. 4 Delight thyself in the Lord; and he shall grant thee the requests of thine heart. 5 Disclose thy way to the Lord, and hope in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

16 A little is better to the righteous than abundant wealth of sinners. 17 For the arms of sinners shall be broken; but the Lord supports the righteous.

18 The Lord knows the ways of the perfect; and their inheritance shall be for ever. 19 They shall not be ashamed in an evil time; and in days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20 For the sinners shall perish; and the enemies of the Lord at the moment of their being honoured and exalted have utterly vanished like smoke.

23 The steps of a man are rightly ordered by the Lord: and he will take pleasure in his way. 24 When he falls, he shall not be ruined: for the Lord supports his hand.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord; and he is their defender in the time of affliction. 40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: and he shall rescue them from sinners, and save them, because they have hoped in him.

The entire Psalm is a gem. These days we need to ingest the promises, not the problems. I keep my eyes on the problems in the world without being disturbed because I know the promises are more real to me than the problems are. At this point I am absolutely confident that the Lord will miraculously provide for those who belong to him as long as they continue to believe....why should we fear? We should fear God alone.

Shifting gears...

There are things about Obama that make me think he is not the 'man of sin.' Although he is widely viewed as a saviour, I've still heard lots and lots of people who think this guy is pathetic. They certainly are'nt standing in awe of him as it appears people will stand in awe of the anti-christ. Maybe its too early, after all, Obama was only recently sworn in, he has yet to show the world more than words. We should know soon enough whether Obama is just another Bush with a (D) by his name, or whether we see actions that warrant our further consideration of him as more than a run of the mill politician/crook.

Another thing that leads me to believe he's not the one is all the evidence surrounding the british aristocracy that something really satanic is brewing over there. The royal seal of prince charles is pretty much a verbatim match with the desription of the anti-christ to come. Read "anti-christ and a cup of tea" for details on that one. With that said, America is so intertwined with Britain on so many levels its hard to say how exactly we'll see the man of sin come out of it. If America is the last days Babylon, what does that make America's mother (Britain)? I don't know. It all turns to spaghetti the more you look at these things.

The moral of todays story is this: our faith is what we need to hang onto at all costs. Satan loves to ask "where is your God now" right while you are in the midst of trying times. Our faith is being tested. I know where my God is....inside of me. We are the temples of the Holy Spirit and satan absolutely despises us for it.

It looks like the timeframe between today and the end of 2012 will be a window to press our faces up against the looking glass separating us from the tribulation. We could escape today, or it may be a couple more years, who knows. What I do know is the events we see around us today cannot continue spiraling out of control the way they are today for much longer. How many more months in a row can 500,000 people lose their jobs before people are rioting in the streets? That rioting is already taking place in at least 5 other countries around the world, but that's kept on the "down-low" by the lame stream media. Obama was right, change is coming, its just not the change that people expect.

The bible is full of spiritual food and medicine, get in it today. Stay in it until your burden is lifted. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. When you are in the presence of the Almighty, you know that you know that you know that you are sure, that you are positive you have nothing to worry about.

Trust in him and watch how you come through every trial with victory and thanks on your lips. That has been my life story, many trials, but deliverance from them all. I am nothing, a nobody, so how much more will he do for you? Keep the faith no matter what the cost. I'm telling you, we believe in a very real and powerful God. His tender mercies and loving kindness are worth more than all the riches of this world. Remain in him, grace and peace

Thoughts About the Anti-Christ

As you have read here, there are anti-christ tags pinned all over Obama. That said, I still won't lay down the gauntlet and say he's "the" man of sin. The anti-christ "coincidences" we see all over Obama tell me more about the time we are in than the man Obama is.

We know the bible tells us that the man of sin will be revealed when the restainer is taken out of the way, until then, all people can do is speculate. What we do not have to speculate on is the time we are in. Or another way of saying it is we don't have to speculate about all the signs we are seeing. The signs are everywhere for those with eyes to see. Do we have to know who the man of sin is, or is it enough to know the time of his rising? America has turned virtually overnight from a nation of laws and morals (at least outwardly) to a nation of lawlessness and immorality. Lawlessness is one of the names of anti-christ. I've been hearing the word "transformation" now for years and here we are in the midst of a major transformation. Using the bible to benchmark what we are transforming into allows us to place ourselves on the world timeline. Greed, corruption, lawlessness, rebellion, moral degredation, apostasy, these are the words that best describe our days. Think we are close to the tribulation?

I am convinced that America is Babylon, those who deny this are entitled to their opinions. I've settled it in my own mind, you should settle these kinds of things in yours. Since there are layers of depth and meaning within God's word, I don't think most people (including me) have scratched the surface of what's coming and how it all fits together. When its over, there's a 100% guarantee we will be able to see the the word of God nailed events perfectly, we were just too blind to see the orchestration of all of it. We might not be able to see the view from our commanding general's perspective, but we can see parts and pieces from where we stand.

The parts and pieces I see form a very strong outline of a picture of the tribulation. How the dots all directly connect will be something we look back on an "Ahhhhhh, so that's how it fit." As soldiers, we don't need to see things from the general's perspective, its enough to see things according to the faith and wisdom we have received. There are many descriptions given for anti-christ, he's the "chaldean" the "assyrian" he comes from the people who destroyed the last temple "roman" he's the "man of sin" and the list goes on and on. I suspect when he is revealed, the combination of connections will run from the surface level obvious down to deep and symbolic, it will be all of the above.

With anti-christ signs plastered all over the landscape, what does that mean about the timing of the restrainer being removed? Only the Lord really knows, but there's a reason we are told to be continually watching. What happens when we are always watching? We'll "see" things and not be caught off guard. We are told to be like the wise virgins of Matt 25 who were watching and ready for the bridegroom. Today many people are overcome by the anxieties of life, which is one of the chief things Jesus said would weight down the hearts of many at the time of the escape (luke 21:34-36).

Times get tough and people can get anxious or they can stand on their faith. We will all stand or fall on our faith (or lack of it). I see more and more people "losing their faith" because they feel their prayers are not being answered. Is it any surprise that prayers are not answered when all people want is a spiritual "one night stand" with Jesus? They want him to fix their problems, but they don't want to fix themselves. They want to be blessed, but they don't want any strings attached. They want the world to change but they don't want to change themselves. You still wondering why millions are'nt getting results from their prayers? They ask, but they don't believe they'll receive anything, that's faithless prayer, and people expect that to be effective? Only at the end will all the motives and contents of the hearts of men be laid bare to expose every time the Lord knocked on people's hearts and they turned away. Only the Lord can judge us as individuals, he has all the info ready to review when everything is said and done. Until then, we each know our own hearts and whispers in our hearts and minds that enable us to know what the things we should be doing to please the Creator of all things.

The tribulation will be a time of worldwide testing, and some will be kept from that testing (Rev 3:10), why? They've already been tested and passed the tests. Even now we are being tested. Things are getting tough, where's your faith? Things will get tougher, the faithless are in for a rough ride. I am greatly saddened at all the suffering we see in this world. People forget that this place was cursed from the very beginning, remember the garden of eden? Who messed up, men or God? We did and we've all been paying for it, but our Father did'nt leave us hanging, he sent his own Son to make things right. Yea, we suffer in this world, some more than others, but what is 20, 30 , 40, 50, 100 years of suffering compared to the 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,
999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999 years, etc etc etc ETERNITY in paradise?
Really, when we are a couple quadrillion years into eternity is anyone gonna look back and say, man, those 50 years a couple quadrillion years ago were pretty rough? Are you kidding me? Our Father sees the vastness of eternity and what he has planned for those who love him. Men, especially faithless men can only see what's right in front of their face.

Yea, there's evil, there's suffering in this world, but ALL THINGS work together for good for those who love the Creator. Time is short, its important to keep things in perspective. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you are infinitely more wealthy than any crook on wall street, and your future is much brighter. Remain in Christ, be patient, be faithful. We are saved by grace THROUGH FAITH. You are dearly loved, grace and peace

A Note About Faith and Explaining Away the Anti-Christ

As the external pressures from the world exert themselves on us from without, we MUST increase out internal pressurization system outward, exerted by faith, to counteract it. If our internal faith "pressure" is not exerted to counteract the pressures coming in on you, you get crushed. If we do not stand on our faith, we will not stand at all.

Another way to look at what's happening today is a submarine going deeper and deeper into the sea. Subs have something known as "crush depth" at which point the hull can no longer withstand the external pressures. We as humans each have our own "crush depth" and like it or not, we're are all going deeper into this sea of tribulation (not THE tribulation) until the Lord pulls us out or we die out. As we wade in deeper, your faith will determine where your "crush depth" is. We are called to be soldiers for the Lord for a reason. A soldiers life is not an easy one. As we go deeper into this dark night in history, our faith must increase or we get crushed. The boat isn't safe anymore, the only place to be is walking on the water, outside the boat with Jesus. That takes faith. It will take faith to lay hold of the promises of God for the future. It will take faith to take part in the escape (luke 21:36). It will take faith to enter the gates of heaven.

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man, remember that one (Mstt 24, Luke 17)?

I have no doubt in my mind, heart, soul or spirit that IF YOU BELIEVE...and I mean really believe deep down inside in the "no fakes allowed" zone, you can expect to see miraculous provision for you and your family during this storm we are living in today. Miraculous provision does not mean chest of gold coins falling into your back yard. What it does mean is your daily bread...

Do you remember God feeding Israel in the desert with Manna? How did it work? They went out DAILY to pick the manna up. If they tried to gather for more than a day it rotted. Daily bread....

Matt 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Your faith is being tested today, our faith is being tested min by minute, hour by hour, and it will be tested until the day we are taken out or die out, whichever comes first. Whatever can be shaken will be shaken, so dig deep and plant roots that cannot be shaken. That is something for you and the Lord alone, there must be real relationship or all bets are off. Many will say to him on that day "Lord Lord" and you don't want to be on the wrong side of his reply.

Explaining Away the Anti-Christ

There are many today who have the anti-christ 'all figured out' so they 'know' that he can't come from America. They guesstimate his national origin and what country he must come from so he could 'never' arise in America right? Wrong. First of all, we live in Babylon, which is America, which is a melting pot of every tribe tongue, culture, nationality on earth. Second, as an example, did you know that Obama has bloodline ties with Dick Cheney and George Bush? The lame stream media gave that story about 1 second worth of exposure then buried it. What a coincidence huh?

or just google it for yourself.

So..where does that bloodline run back to?

But the beast could never arise out of america because all the 'experts' know where he has to come from?...uh...right..there are lawsuits still active to this day hinging on the real whereabouts of Obama's origin. Do you find it curious at all that nobody can produce a birth certificate for this guy? We are handed the convenient options of hawaii and kenya to argue over, but who says, who can prove legally where the guy is really from? He could have been spawned in hell for all we know, no birth certificate=open mystery. How convenient, and it did'nt slow him down taking over the reigns of babylon by a single second.

We've already covered the 10 kings argument, the 10 kings likely already exist but don't get actual kingdoms until the "Hour" appointed for them to hand over their power to the beast. Ever heard of the United Nations 10 Bio Regions? The EU is one, the North American Union is another..etc

The anti-christ is also known as "the king of the North." How far out on a limb do we have to reach in order to pull up a map and see America...specifically on a map NORTH America? North America? King of the North? And by the way, the armies of the "King of the North" are today scattered across the countries of most of the world. America's..babylon's armies are everywhere.

As we observed yesterday, there will be continual efforts to point your attention, anywhere but here.. it's the EU, no no, its rome and the catholic church, no no, wait..its Syria and no wait....its reborn wait, its etc etc etc anywhere and everywhere BUT HERE.

All the greatest magicians know that misdirection pulls off the trick. Keep the attention away from where the real magic is happening and you've got 'magic.' We have been told over and over that the end times will be all about deception. Deception is the hallmark of our age. Lies, deceit, and deception. Who among the so called christian church wants to admit they are a babylonian church? That's what they are. Who wants to admit they are a nicolaitan "conquer the laity" pastor, whose deeds and teachings are hated by Jesus (rev 2-3)? Who wants to admit to being a key player in an idolatrous system that glorifies men (the pastoral system)? Our God said that he WILL NOT SHARE HIS GLORY OR HIS PRAISE WITH IDOLS..

Isaiah 42:8 "I am the LORD, that is My name; I will
... "I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.

If our God will not share his glory or praise with graven images, how much less with living images? If a 'pastor' is 'idolized' even 1% of the time he is standing over and above the sheep pontificating, that's stolen worship, stolen praise, that's idolatry. What do you here 'pastors' saying one of the main things they have to fight against? PRIDE...why? The system is IDOLATROUS, that's why. They can feel the adoration directed toward them and PRIDE feeds off it like a cancer.

There is NO 'clergy/laity' system in the true church. We are all different parts of the same organic living body. I'm a toe, you are a hand or whatever. There is no place, zero for the hand to boast over the toe or vice-versa. The head of the body, which is Christ, rules over the entire body. Men did'nt like that system, so as the history of men goes, they made their own system. The 'priest/pastor' system that rules over the "lay people." Whenever I hear that word "Layperson" I want to gag, seriously, who do these people think they are? They are laity conquerers, which is what "nicolaitan" literally means in latin. They will have much to answer for. It does'nt matter how nice a guy, how good a speaker, how knowledgeable of the bible these pastors are, the fact that they participate in a babylonian idolatrous system will be answered for.

Everything that's important for you to know has been buried as deep as men could bury it so you can't see it. Everything you don't need to know is plastered all over the newspapers and webpages of the lamestream media on an hourly, or even minute to minute basis. For example, I just clicked over to and the headline story today is "Oprah interviews 7 foot 3 boy to discuss rare mysterious condition." That's what you really needed to know today isn't it?

The dark clouds of the approaching tribulation storm are already over our head today. My spiritual sense is that our faces will be pressed right up against the looking glass that divides the 7 year tribulation with the ordinary storm days we are living in today. As we believe, so shall it be done unto us. An escape from all has been promised and we were told to pray for it. I pray for you, for my family and for myself that we may be counted worthy of the escape that is coming. Remain "in Christ," grace and peace

America is Babylon

For those who have eyes to see, the writing is "on the wall" that America is modern Babylon prophesied about in the bible more times than I care to count this morning. It makes perfect sense that the babylonian form of "christianity" we see in America today would fight tooth and nail against any such identification.

I read this morning that a popular 'christian' website predicts that America's real downfall will be the rapture of the "many" christians who live here. This disappearance and the distruption it causes is why America isn't mentioned in end times scriptures. Once again, we are looking at unfettered denial. In order to "pin the rose" on end time babylon, a number of different criteria have to be met. I have counted over one hundred individual characteristics that end time babylon needs to have to make the shoe fit, and America is the only nation in the history of the world that "fits." Just a few clues are all the pagan monuments and symbols that characterize this nation. Look no further than Washington DC and a one dollar bill for enough pagan/Egyptian symbols to fill up a museum. Do some research on "Lady Liberty" in New York harbor to look behind the smokescreen of how America does fit, and is prominent in the end times scenario laid out in the bible.

I'm no advocate of Islam, but do you ever wonder why extremely conservative men in the middle east don't want western influence there? The minute America and her allies get control of a country, brittany spears type sex dripping "entertainment" immediately floods the whole society. Is that something a "godly" nation does? Flood other countries with filth? Nobody in the world exports more porn than America does..makes alot of sense when you understand that America is modern day Babylon. We are unmatched militarily, we are a very young nation, recently born among the nations of the world and now we are unmatched among the nations. The world government headquarters is located in the seat of world commerce (NYC).

I could go on and on but I won't, if you want more evidence, it's out there for your taking. What happens to Babylon? She is harshly judged by fire. As commented on previously, Satan's game is misdirection. Todays babylonian form of churchianity tells you that America is nowhere to be found in scripture, when the truth is we are plastered all over the pages of the bible. The priests and teachers of babylon tell you we are a "christian nation" and that so many "good people" in America will be raptured that we won't be worth mentioning in the coming days. More misdirection to keep you looking everywhere else but here, now, us. The problems are always over the fence somewhere, anywhere but here. The "sinners" are always somewhere else, not here among us. There are "religious people" who "don't get it" everywhere, but those people are never under the same roof as the one you are hearing the message under.

Another alias for the anti-christ is the "King of Babylon." Well, if we are living in Babylon, that would make our president the "king" would'nt it? I won't go so far as to say Obama is the one yet, but the shoe is looking like a fit as more and more "coincidences" surround that man. Living in Babylon would explain the wide spread apostasy and filth we see everywhere. It explains why its so difficult to be a real christian who is separated from the prostitute. For real believers, Jesus Christ alone has to be enough for us because he is all we have against a satanic society that worships mammon. But "only" having Christ is like saying "all I have is more than I'll ever need."

When the escape comes, it will certainly have a detrimental impact on the world. Even the tiniest light in a room can provide enough illumination to see the entire room. When the small lights are removed, everyone falls into complete darkness. The Lord won't take all the light from this world, he just changes out the bulbs. In Rev 7 we see 144,000 pure hearted Israelites who are unblemished from all the tribes of Israel. These people are sealed with the seal of God and serve during the tribulation hour. We also see an angel preaching the gospel to the entire world during the tribulation. Not men...angel....

Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel flying in midheaven ...
... Then I saw another angel flying overhead with the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on earth-to every nation, tribe, language, and people.

So the word will get out even in the dark hours ahead of us.

There are those who say that the escape coming will not be out of this world, but we will just be "kept" somewhere on this earth. However, if the trial coming covers the entire earth, and we are to be kept from all of it, where would we go? We know the Jews will be kept immediately after the Abomination of Desolation, but the bible says nothing about the church be provisioned for on this earth. My point with this today though is I don't really care where the escape leads us. If the Lord is the one who enables it, the "where to" is his operation and since it will be an escape from "all" that's coming, I don't think we will be troubled when we arrive at the appointed escape destination. Rev 4 show us an open door in heaven and redeemed, rewarded men sitting around the throne of Christ. That appears to be a huge clue. Rev 2-3, Jesus has a heart to heart with the churches, Rev 4, door open in heaven and redeemed men sitting around the throne with crowns on..

We live in Babylon, we've got a king of Babylon figure now with anti-christ clues draped all over him, we see the entire world convulsing as if in child birth to bring forth something new. The old ways are dying and something new and sinister this way comes. The book of Revelation tell us what's coming, we don't have to guess. Time is short. As we approach the dividing line in time that separates the the tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble/Daniel's 70th week from today things continue to go from bad to worse. What that means is, our faith is becoming more and more valuable with every passing day. If we don't stand on our faith, we wont stand at all. Jesus fed Israel in the desert with manna. If your heart is right with him, and you are in need, do you believe he will provide for you? What you believe will make the difference. There's nothing going on today or in the future that our Lord hasn't seen coming since the foundations were laid for this world. Take no thought for the things you need but focus on his kingdom. He knows what you need. Be anxious for nothing, but pray with thanksgiving and your needs will be met.

I have no doubt whatsoever that the Lord would drop manna out of the sky again into a person's backyard, I've seen him do more than that in my own life, what depends is what you believe...that's the factor that determines what shows up for you and what doesn't. Your faith is what keeps you walking outside the boat with Jesus above the storm, not sinking down below the waves. You already know these things, this is just a reminder. Your faith is worth more than gold. We are children of the King, we are dearly loved. We must be faithful, we must be obedient to the point of death should our Lord wish it. Remain "in Christ" be faithful and be patient. It doesn't look like we have much longer to wait. grace and peace

Those Who Fall Away

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Two things to notice today. 1. The priests of babylon would have you believe that once you believe in Jesus, you are "saved" forever.

John 6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work
... Jesus answered them, "This is the work of God: to believe in the one whom he has sent." ...

According to John 6:29 there, these teachers tell you that all you have to do is "believe" and you are "saved" forever. Well, what does Luke 8:13-14 tell us? There are those who believe for awhile, then fall away. Yes, you do have to believe to make it into heaven. Babylonianity teaches you that "believing" is something that stands on its own, but how can you believe in something you don't see without faith? We are saved by grace, through faith. I've heard these priests of the enemy teach that you can be "saved" even when you no longer believe, and are faithless! This teaching that you don't need faith to get into heaven directly contradicts just about everything written about faith in the entire bible.

The second point relates to "perfection." Todays so called christians believe in a sin tolerant, no problem with imperfections Jesus. The bible talks about a different Jesus, read this agian:

14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

No fruit to what? Perfection......

Are we going to be as perfect as Jesus? No. Are we called to strive for it? Yes. This has a tie in with the parable of the talents in Matt 25..right after the parable of the virgins..which is a parable about readiness...

If you ever read the results of polling done on churchianity you'll see some staggering numbers, like for instance, over 60% of todays so called church don't believe the devil is real and don't believe that Jesus is the only path to God the father. This should help you understand why the path leading to life is narrow and only a few find it. This is why so few end up "overcoming" and therefore are "saved." The work of God is to believe, and in order to believe you must have faith.

This faith needed to believe will be tested in the days to come. If we think the church is apostate today, just wait, we have'nt seen anything yet. Time is short. We need to pray for the escape that is coming, but you have to believe its coming. Belief is only empowered through faith when speaking of yet unseen things. The escape is unseen, Jesus is unseen and both are coming soon.

I wonder how many days, months or years we have left on this earth. Be ready for the master today, but bring some extra oil in jars to wait out the master for however long he tarries. grace and peace

Those Being Saved

1 Cor 1:18 for the word of the cross to those indeed perishing is foolishness, and to us -- those being saved -- it is the power of God,

Note carefully what is said above. To us...those being says BEING SAVED..which means its an ongoing thing, not a "sign sealed delivered" thing.

Does this jive with Paul saying that he was working out his salvation with fear and trembling?

Yea, it fits like a glove.

1 Cor 2:14 and the natural man doth not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for to him they are foolishness, and he is not able to know them, because spiritually they are discerned; 15 and he who is spiritual, doth discern indeed all things, and he himself is by no one discerned; 16 for who did know the mind of the Lord that he shall instruct Him? and we -- we have the mind of Christ.

This is a big help in understanding why so few "get it." This also helps explain why so few are on the narrow path that leads to life. The true things of God are considered foolishness by natural man. This explains why the preachers and teachers of babylon-ianity kept telling you to "get involved" in this worlds political process so you could "make a difference." To these men, praying is a distant afterthought to worldly "involvement" when you want to get something accomplished.

There is a place for action, but only after prayer. Sometimes the most difficult action is to take no action, which is many times a faith test. You pray and the Lord tells you to wait for it. You get tired of waiting and proceed to go out and do it for yourself. I've lost count of how many figures in the bible screwed up majorly over that one thing alone. The first to come to mind was King Saul. So, when you pray, and the Lord tells you to wait, you are "doing something" and that thing that you are doing is absolute foolishness to natural man. They just don't get it.

As we approach the tribulation hour, each one of us needs to tune into the Lord's frequency...daily.. to find out what our specific marching orders are.

We have seen the signs hanging around Obama's neck that clearly point to anti-christ. As I've also said, that does'nt mean he is it, he could be the one greasing the skids for the man of sin, or he could be the man of sin, regardless, either way the signs are there. We know that the apostasy is in full bloom and the restrainer is taken out of the way to make way for the revelation of anti-christ. We don't know today who it is, but we see signs everywhere telling us he's in the area. What does that mean? Time is short. If anti-christ is about to be revealed, that means the escape is about here. We may have a couple years left, we may not have the rest of today left on this earth.

Let us keep our lamps full of oil today, lets be prepared to wait for the shout that calls us into our version of Noah's ark. Let's be prepared to meet our master at the door when he knocks, and when he shows up may he find us doing what pleases him. Be ready today, be patient today. Plan and work as though we could be here to live out the rest of a natural life, but understand the Master said he would show up at a time when we were not expecting it.

If Jesus showed up today, I would not be surprised. Many are getting so sucked in by the "anxieties of life" which is exactly what the Lord told us not to do. If we do not stand on our faith, we will not stand at all.

"If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all." Isaiah 7:9

Luke 21:34 'And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts may be weighed down with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day may come on you, 35 for as a snare it shall come on all those dwelling on the face of all the land, 36 watch ye, then, in every season, praying that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are about to come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.'

Our faith "muscle" is like any other muscle in that it becomes stronger with use. If you are not "excercising" it today then what will happen tomorrow when you really need your faith to walk outside the boat with Jesus? It's going to take faith to do everything of any importance in the future. We do not live by sight, we live by faith. Our hope is the evidence of the things we do not see yet. Do not be troubled by the things happening around us, the needs we have (and we all have them) need to be committed to the Lord in faith, then we should rest.

Phil 4:6 for nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer, and by supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God; 7 and the peace of God, that is surpassing all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Do this ^^ and later, when you have passed through your situations victoriously, look back on what the Lord has done for you. Do not be double minded. You are dearly loved..grace and peace

Anti-Christ and Satanic Age Written All Over the Inaguration

Okay, so let's see. A review of the material I posted yesterday shows us this:

1. The most powerful man in the world (United States President) is code named "Renegade" which means lawless one..rejecting faith..rejecting law (by the secret service)

2. The most powerful man in the world rides on the beast, which is the code name given to the presidential limo

3. The day after the inaguration, Obama overwrites his oath so it could be done "correctly." Apparently doing the oath "correctly" involved performing the oath without a bible...

If we did'nt have enough clues there....did you watch the inagural parade? I distinctly remember the reporters ooooing and aaaaaaaing the Vshaped motorcycle formations that preceded the president. With all the colored lights on the motorcycles and the V formation it was an impressive sight. Something struck me odd about their comments and what we were seeing.
Do you remember the comments I made awhile back about the future being stranger than fiction. Remember the comments I made about the new movie called "watchmen" coming out soon? If you watch the trailers for the movie you'll notice "superhero" figures and UFO's throughout the movie. We've been buried lately in "superhero" movies. Have you noticed that? Comments in the recent movie "Hancock" where one of the "superheroes" explains what they really are: GODS..ANGELS....

Back to the Vshaped motorcycle formation. What kind of associations can we now link to the amazing satanic parade that was Obama's inaguration? UFO/Alien/Superhero/Angelic...DEMONIC contact.
The word of God speaks clearly of a time in the future when mens hearts fail them from fear of what's coming on the earth...
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
So before you fall over laughing at the Ufo reference, remember that movie "Independance day?" Have you noticed all the movies produced over the past 10 years dealing with Ufo/Alien contact? Let me ask you a question: what would be the state of your heart if/when a 10 mile long "independance day" sized UFO showed up over the white house? Think your heart might flutter a little bit? ............Men's hearts failing them for fear....looking after those things which are coming on the earth.
We have a president who is now associated (through words) with beast, lawlessness (renegade), rejection of the Bible, Ufo/Alien/Angels and all those associations came out of the first two days of Obama's presidency.
I know people scoff at such things. As evidence of the end of the age mounts, so does opposition, scoffing and denial of the evidence. I'm standing on the wall watching and telling you what I see. I'm not the only one seeing these things but the others are few....why am I not surprised? I'm still amazed at how we can have DAILY news reports of Ufo sightings and yet many still scoff at the idea that "contact" may happen soon.
Let's look at this again:
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
That ^^ is a clear reference to Rev 6
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
This ^^ comes immediately after the Rev 6 reference
10 verses later in Luke 21 we have what? Luke 21:26-->+10 verses=Luke 21:36
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Escape ALL of what things? These's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth...that we read 10 verses earlier. Is it a coincidence that after giving us clear reference to Rev 6 and mens hearts failing them for fear we are told to pray for escape from ALL OF IT? No, its not a coincidence.
What's in your heart today? What are you excersing your faith for? Do you beleive that the escape promised in Luke 21:36 is something you can be part of? If you don't, if you are not praying specifically for the escape as you were told to, do you think you'll get to escape anyway?
As you believe, so it shall be done unto you.
Matt 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
My opinion is, those who believe they will go through the tribulation WILL GO THROUGH it. I am absolutely convinced that the escape is the pre-trib rapture, but guess what those who are post-trib and pre-wrath and believe that they'll be neck deep in the tribulation will be correct about one thing, they believe they will go through the tribulation so as they believe, so be it done unto them...right?
Faith is the currency of heaven, and if you have no faith currency in the "escape" account how will you pay the cost on the day it shows up? If you are bankrupt in the escape account and filthy faith rich in the "go through the tribulation" account, you only have one account to draw from. What do I base that on? Matt you believe so be it unto thee...nothing complex about it. It only gets complex when people live a life of wickedness, sin, and apostasy but still believe they will enter the gates of heaven.
The bottom line here is: time is short. I did'nt think Obama was the anti-christ before the inauguration, but the events of Jan 20-21 we so loaded I could'nt deny them. Who knows, maybe Obama isn't the anti-christ, but if he isn't he still has "beast, renegade-lawless one, no bible included oath, ufo patterned escort" pasted all over him. Perhaps he's a "john the baptist for satan" type who paves the way for the man of sin. I don't know. We still of Joe Biden's promised "Obama test" coming that might expose more of what we are dealing with.
I have a mental image now of how the timing of the rapture works out, time will tell how accurate it is. Of course its not a "date setting" image, its an image of our face pressed up a thin glass window that separates the tribulation world from us today. We get so close to the tribulation that we can smell it, hear it, taste it, we are a razors width away from it then "bang" with a shout, in the blink of an eye, we are gone. That will test people's faith, which is why it makes the most sense. We are being tested today, and we will be tested right up to the day we leave this place.
I take the promises of God very seriously and I say the things I say without taking anything for granted. I can tell you that I have the "fear of God" alive and well within me. I do fear the one who can throw both body and soul into hell.
Matt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
You know that this ^^^^was not written to the pagans, heathens or satanists right? That was written to and me. While we are on the idea of not taking things for granted...
Back to the OSAS destroyer..John 15 which tells us that you can be cutoff from the vine, which is Jesus Christ, here is another direct reference that ties in both "not taking things for granted" and debunking the OSAS heresy:
John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
What happens if you do not"continue in his goodness?" You will be CUT OFF, that's twice in two different places that we get the same message. Does "continue in his goodness" sound like an event that took place 10 years ago or yesterday? Continue means today and tomorrow and the next day etc etc etc. You might have been "saved" yesterday but what are you TODAY? I can tell you for a fact, based on Romans 11 and John 15 that if today you are not "continuing in his goodness" you are CUTOFF. Does "cutoff" sound saved to you? Does thrown out, withered and burned (John 15:6) sound "saved" to you?
Also notice there's that word again "in" like "in him" ..."in Christ"..."in his goodness." If you are "in" you are covered by everything Jesus did for you. If you are not "in (him/Christ/his goodness)" you are covered in your sins....
The time to get "in Christ" and remain "in Christ" is today.
Paul said he worked out his salvation with fear and trembling, unlike so many within the babylonian form of christianity today. Why should they "work out their salvation with fear and trembling" when they "got saved" 30 years ago? I hope you are beginning to understand why so many are on the broad path that leads to destruction, and why so FEW will enter the narrow gate that leads to life. I hope you are beginning to understand why MANY will say to Jesus "Lord Lord, did'nt we do this that and the other thing in your name" and he'll tell them "I never knew you, away from me."
Be ready for Jesus to come back today, be patient enough to wait for him for years. That's the narrow path we walk. grace and peace

"Grace" Preachers and Whispers of Anti-Christ

One of the popular things within the babylonian form of 'christianity' around us today is preachers of a one dimensional god. For example, there are men out there who are known as "grace" preachers, that's their bread and butter. I heard one last night saying that "grace" covers everything up. He said that during the old testament, people had to follow the law to be found righteous, and most people could'nt do it, so sin prevailed. That I agree with. Then he said that now, thanks to the grace of our God, basically you can do no wrong. That, I have a serious problem with.

I'd like to restate the position as I understand it, that "in Christ" the grace of God does cover all your sins. "in Christ" everything Jesus did on the cross applies to you, and you get credit for all of it.

If you do not remain "in Christ" you get credit for nothing but your own sins.

John 15:4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch
... Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless itremains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.

John 15:7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in
... If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will askwhatever you desire, and it will be done for you.

John 15:6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown
... If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; andthey gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

How much clearer could he be? If you don't remain in him you are gathered, withered, thrown into the fire and burned up. What part of "if you don't remain in me" do people not understand?
These babylonian pastors/teachers would have you believe that John 15:6 does'nt even exist in the bible. "Remain" "in him" or "don't remain" are the options with definite consequences attached to each. These babylonian priest/pastors like to reach down through the crystal clear water to the mud at the bottom and stir the mud up until nothing is clearly visible anymore. They twist, misdirect, and obfuscate.

Here's another dose of the two most important words in the bible: John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Where is life? In him....

So if you are not "in him" no life....

How can men preach a one dimensional god? As if the Creator is a "grace only" god? Our God loves, and he hates, he offers grace and judgement, he is multi-dimensional.... so to stake your claim on preaching one dimension of our God at the expense of all his other attributes is to be a willful deceiver.

Look at the world around us, see how messed up it is. Why is it so messed up? When men preach a god who is only "grace" then that god is not our God, because the Creator is much much more than just grace. There are millions of people on earth today who believe that God's grace is a one way ticket to heaven, no matter what they do. What happens if they don't remain "in him?" You know what happens because you just read it.

Today is a day to ask the tough questions. Why will so few make it into heaven.....why?
Why will many say "Lord Lord" on that day and be told "away from me you evildoers I never knew you?" Many will say "Lord Lord" and be turned away because they were taught about a god that is not our God, and they believed in that god that was not our God. It was quite pleasant to have ears tickled with a different gospel than the one that was preached in the bible.

The hour is late, time is short. The tough questions and the tough answers need to be spotlighted today. We need to expend ourselves to come to a real, true knowledge of what God said. From the very beginning in Genesis, Satan has been asking "hath God really said?" Today the servants of the evil one propagate the same message "hath god really said there are salvation (not reward) consequences for disobedience, wickedness, faithlessness and sin?"

I can help you out with that question, because we just read that if you do not remain "in him" you get thrown out and burned up, which does not sound "saved" to me.

"in him" you get credit for everything Jesus did.
if you do not remain "in him" you get credit for your sins

It's that easy.

There are those who want to know just how much sin it takes for them to no longer remain "in Christ." That's like a man wanting to know how many times he can cheat on his wife before she divorces him. What kind of man asks that question? Where is his heart? Your heart is being tested and when your primary line of questioning has to do with how much sin you can carry up to the gates of heaven and still get in, you are already in trouble.

Another thing to notice about the babylonian priests teaching todays "christianity" is their continual efforts to move the bar lower and lower in the minds of believers when in fact the bar is set very high and its not moving. I hear the same things over and over again:

Everybody sins all the time (even "christians") so stop worrying about sin and focus on god's "grace"

Jesus was perfect, but since we are humans and imperfect, Jesus does'nt expect us to be like him.

Same lies day after day after day.

James 5:9 Brethren, if any among you may go astray from the truth, and any one may turn him back, 20 let him know that he who did turn back a sinner from the straying of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins.

Did you read that^^? He's talking to you...the church..when he says if you go astray from the truth and someone turns you back to the truth, that person that turned you back saved your soul from death. The message here is clear, sin leads to death, period. If you want to cheat on your wife to find our where the boundary lines are for divorce, go for it, but you're a fool. If you want to sin against the Lord and man to find out where the boundary lines are for remaining "in him" then go for it, but you're a fool.

People who play with fire get burned. To play and toy with sin is to play and toy with death.

As for us not being perfect so why bother trying?
James 1:4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you
... And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you maybe perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Matthew 5:48 "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly ...
... So be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."

How can you be perfect? Remain "in him" and his perfection is credited to you. Two most important words in the bible "in him" ...."in Christ." Over and over and over it's in there yet over years being involved with the babylonian church I never once heard the priests of babylon utter those words except to read verbatim from the bible which is a credit to what has been written but an indictment on their understanding.

We will all give account of ourselves to the Lord.. some day soon. The time to come to terms with what you believe is today. A storm is coming that will shake everything that can be shaken. If your faith can be shaken it will be shaken. The babylonian so called christian priesthood (pastors) won't be there to answer for you to the Lord. If you don't know him personally and intimately today, then you should get to work on it. It starts with coming clean to him who sees and knows everything. Repentance is truly being sorry and turning away from the things that displease the Lord and should displease you. We need help to do everything required to please the Father which is why we are given the Holy Spirit. We were never told to go do everything on our own strength and wisdom.

The economic downturn we are facing most likely will take more than 10 years to correct. Do you think we have 1o years left? How much more apostate could the church get than it is today? How much more wicked could the politicians, business leaders and leaders of the babylonian church get? How many more months can we lose 1,000,000 jobs and things continue as business as usual? How much longer can all the trends we see in the world today continue trending the direction they are today and things remain "business as usual?"

These things call for readiness today and patience for tomorrow. The Lord could show up today and many would not be expecting it, would they? How close to the end are we?

Did you know that the secret service has code named the presidential limo? They call it "the beast."

So now, literally, the most powerful man in the world (President of United States) rides on "the beast" ...literally. This is one example of many things to come, that will not be obvious to people. Even during the tribulation, it's going to take faith to "get it" and "see" what's happening in literal fulfillment of prophesy. As with most things, there are literal and figurative fulfillments of things. The Lord has hidden many things that men can only see with the Spirit who knows how to "see" the hidden things.

Do you know what the "secret service" has named Obama? RENEGADE.
Interesting name huh? What does "renegade" mean?

Spanish renegado, from Medieval Latin renegatus, from past participle of renegare to deny, from Latin re- + negare to deny — more at negate
1 : a deserter from one faith, cause, or allegiance to another 2 : an individual who rejects lawful or conventional behavior

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at ...
... For the secret of this lawlessness is already at work, but only untilthe person now holding it back gets out of the way

Matthew 24:12 "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's ...
... and because lawlessness will increase, the love of many people will grow cold. ... "Becauselawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.

1 John 3:4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness ...
... Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for ...
... unbelievers. What partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness?

Matthew 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew
... "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHOPRACTICE LAWLESSNESS ...

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it
... Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comesfirst, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

Has the "secret service" given us the "secret keys" to understanding who Obama really is?
A "renegade" is a man who is LAWLESSNESS..the anti-christ IS "the man of lawlessness."

The "lawless one-renegade" riding "the beast" I mean...come on people....

and just when you thought it could'nt get any better? Obama "redid" his oath "the right way" AFTER, overwriting his initial oath...... What was this "right way" Obama used to take his oath? WITH NO BIBLE........

Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts asked.
"I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," Obama replied.
After a flawless recitation that included NO Bible and took 25 seconds, Roberts smiled and said, "Congratulations, again."

How much time do you think we have left?

About the Church

No Pastors Mentioned:

2 Tim 2: 2 And the things which thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

So, what happened there ^^^? Paul taught some people, then said, go find some faithful men who can teach others and teach what I taught you to them. Don't you find it interesting that Paul DID NOT say go find some "pastors" and let them spread the teaching? Paul could have done that but he did'nt. Look around at churchianity today, every single church..ALL OF THEM are full of "pastors" yet Paul does'nt mention them..WHY NOT? There were only two qualifications necessary to carry the message Paul taught..1. FAITHFUL 2. Able to teach
No "seminary" degree necessary, no made made title (pastor) necessary. No man made organization (churchianity) necessary. The body of Christ is a REAL BODY, an organic living entity, NOT a manmade organization. The system of churchianity with its idolatrous, nicolaitan (conquer the laity) system is the problem. Judgement STARTS WITH THE HOUSE OF GOD...remember that..

1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Where is our Salvation?

2 Tim 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

IN CHRIST...there it is again. Our salvation is "in Christ."

Another Beat down of OSAS-once saved always saved:
2 Tim 2:11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Have you "died" with Christ? What happens if you "make a decision" for Jesus, then deny him? HE WILL DENY YOU. This passage does'nt say (unless you "made a decision") it says IF...THEN..period. The OSAS teachers have to put words into the Lord's mouth to explain away the simple teaching that if you deny Jesus, he will deny you.

The teachers of babylonian churchianity would have you believe that "you can't deny him" once you've "made a decision" for Christ. Is that what 2 Tim 2 says? NO, its not, so why do they teach it?

The Lord says if you deny him, he will deny you. Where can we see Jesus delivering on this promise?

Right here:

Matt 7: 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Also here:

Matt 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Apparently, there are more ways to deny Christ than to walk around saying "I deny him." If you are living in wickedness and sin, if you love the world, if you are greedy for gain, if your relgion has more to do with socializing and feeling good about yourself for fitting into the mold men designed for you than love of the truth, do you think you'll be welcomed into heaven with open arms?

Prophesying, casting out devils and doing many wonderful works apparently ISN'T enough to get a person into heaven. True believers will do those things, but apparently those who make it into the "narrow gate" have something else going for them.

It isn't a giant puzzle to figure out what it takes to be in the Lord's good graces today. Ask yourself what pleases the Lord.....we know what those things are, DO THEM. Be faithful, be obedient, love the truth, ask the Lord to remove everything in you that displeases him. Ask him to give you his mind and his heart that you may be like him in everyway and you have to REALLY want it, do you? How much do we love him? Our committment will be tested, that's a fact. Look up the word "test" in an online bible search engine and feast your eyes on all the testing men will face. ALL OF US are tested. Time will test us, time will show what really matters to us. You can fake almost anything for awhile, but what's really down deep inside of you cannot be faked. That "dig down deep" WANT will be exposed... sooner or later.

Time is short, if we don't discuss these things now, when will we? We might not get tomorrow....There are no signs for the escape/rapture, but there ARE signs for the tribulation. When we see the tribulation world hurtling towards us what does that tell us about the escape? IT MUST BE SOON. The Lord takes pleasure in us excercising our faith. Thought the rapture could occur years before the tribulation, its becoming apparent that the Lord will press us up right against the minutes and seconds the preceed the tribulation to TEST our faith. Do we really believe what was written in luke 21:36, or will we resign ourselves to slugging it out through the tribulation? Do you believe there will be an escape? Do you believe the Lord has made provisions for the believing small flock that exists immediately prior to the tribulation? The Lord provided for Noah, Lot, we see that he provides for Israel during the tribulation, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that this God I serve knows how to take care of those who belong to him. I have seen miracle provision in my own life over and over and over and over again, and he has saved his best provision for last.....It's going to take faith to receive the promises though.

If you toss in your faith just when you needed it most, what a tragedy that would be. As my brother Jeff says "walking outside the boat with Jesus"...there's no other place I'd rather be, but recognize it will take second by second, minute by minute FAITH to stay above the water and not sink down below it. Hope is the substance and evidence of things not seen, it is the bridge that enables you to hold today in your spirit what will be delivered to you physically tomorrow. Set your hope fully on the escape that is coming, when it shows up in this world, it will be like saying hello to a friend you've known for many years but have seen face to face for the first time.

There are many many diversions in this world competing for your attention. Make sure you keep your eyes on the prize. If you don't believe there is a prize, then you likely will never lay hold of one. As you believe, so shall it be done unto you. If you believe you will go through the tribulation, if that's where your faith is, what do you think your reality will be?

Matthew 8:13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go; it shall be
... Jesus told the officer, "Go! What you believed will be done for you." And at that moment the servant was healed.

It's important to know for yourself why you believe what you beleive. The devil comes to steal kill and destroy, whatever is not nailed down he will take from you. You need to NAIL DOWN what you believe, in order to do that you need to deeply answer WHY you believe. WHY is a very important question.

Jesus loved me first, that's part of my why. His extended grace is part of my why. His indwelling Holy Spirit provides the faith to get us the grace + faith necessary for salvation.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and
... For ye are saved by grace, through faith; and thisnot of yourselves; it is God's gift:

Your relationship or lack thereof with Jesus Christ will be exposed for what it is. We do not want to hear "away from me you evildoer, I never knew you."(matt 7:21+)

We must be ready and patient today. That is the lesson of the wise virgins in Matt 25. They were ready for whenever the bridegroom showed up. They were prepared for patience, they brought oil in jars to wait out the bridegroom for however long it took him to show up. The foolish virgins were not prepared to wait, and that lack was exposed when the bridegroom showed up at just the wrong time for them....

The tribulation timeline is nailed down to the day. The Lord gave men the ability to predict to the day when he will show up and when key events will happen during the tribulation. The escape however, is an unknown day and hour that will occur when we are not expecting it. Are you expecting the escape today? If not, if it came today, it would be at a time you did'nt expect it right? Any day now could be that day. We are close. Keep the faith, you are in my prayers if you are "in Christ." I also pray for all those who will know him in the future. Please pray for our family which is "in Christ" that we may be counted fully deserving of the escape that is coming.

In the Days That Were Before the Flood

Matt 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

It's amazing to see all the hooplah over this inaguration. Ten of, hundreds of millions of people seem to have this idea that Obama will actually change things for their benefit. I cannot think of any more naive thought than that. People are jam packing themselves together in the freezing cold for DAYS for what? To see (maybe) a car zoom by? To see a dot way on the horizon that might be the president? It's easy to see where people's hope is.

We, on the other hand, have an ark of Safety, just like Noah did, just like Lot who was escorted out of harms way BEFORE destruction fell. Jesus Christ is our ark of safety. This world is crumbling down around people's ears and I think its their last chance to get things right before all hell breaks loose. Putting hope in this world is FUTILE. The creation was SUBJECT TO FRUSTRATION by the creator PURPOSEFULLY.

Romans 8:8 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

There is no pleasure for those with the Spirit to see other people suffering, but there is great pleasure in seeing souls turned away from destruction. Our hope today should be fully set on the Lord Jesus and the coming of his kingdom. This place is rotten and getting worse by the day. You'd think that the so called christians in this world with all their "getting involved" would have stemmed the tide of wickedness. It does'nt take alot of light to illuminate an entire room, yet this world teeters on pitch blackness with a few little spots of light flickering throughout the nations. What does that tell you about todays "christians."

Everything written here is to get your attention and redirect it to the one who CAN help you. This world has never seen a time like today in the history of the world. Never before have the forces of darkness moved so far, so fast to blanket the world and implement a truly global satanic reign. It's been an old dream, attempted by many men in the past, but never realized. These days, our days we are SEEING the fulfillment of prophesy written about for thousands of years reserved for OUR DAYS. What will we do about it? Will we believe God?

I have written in the past about preparing for the tribulation. Our preparedness is to be found "in Christ" without spot or blemish, wholly satisfying to him who loves us. Provision will be made BY GOD himself for Israel after the abomination that causes desolation. Provision was made BY GOD for Noah to build an ark, Provision was made BY GOD to escort Lot out of Sodom. Do you beleive for one second that those who are dearly loved "in Christ" will not be provisioned for? What is our provision? ESCAPE...luke 21:36...from ALL thats about to happen.
In Rev 4 we see:

1. behold, a door was opened in heaven
2. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

A door open in heaven? Yea. What are doors for? For people to go in and out of right?

Where do those crowns come from ?

1 Peter 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive ...
... Then, when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the victor'scrown of glory that will never fade away order for those elders to be wearing their crowns, the CHIEF SHEPHERD had to appear to them right? Isn't that what 1 Peter5:4 says? In Rev 4 we see REDEEMED men, coincidentally RIGHT AFTER the door opened in heaven? Coincidentally IMMEDIATELY after Jesus spoke DIRECTLY to the churches in Rev 2-3? Too much coincidence there for me. Jesus is speaking to the churches TODAY, next a door opens in heaven and redeemed men are wearing crowns.

Notice that not everyone gets a crown:

2 Timothy 2:5 Also if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not
... And if a man takes part in a competition he does not get the crown if he has not kept the rules.

You've got to keep the rules...which means obey. Jesus said "If you love me you will obey my commands." On the day of the escape, what would people pay (if they could) to get out of here and go directly to heaven? There's nothing in this world, the sum of all of it added together that could be remotely close to worth the value of escaping this world and ending up in paradise.

There are many scoffers today who tell us that nobody escapes. These scoffers must know something that Jesus does'nt because it was the Spirit of God who said there is an escape coming from all that's about to happen (luke 21:36). The church HAS BEEN provisioned for, just like Noah, Lot and Israel will be during the coming "time of Jacob's trouble" which is the 70th week of Daniel which is coming for a SPECIFIC PURPOSE. That purpose is NOT to test and try the believing, obedient church.

Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

These words are proof that the hour of temptation is NOT for those who keep Jesus' word. Jesus is speaking to THE CHURCH here, a church with little strength who will be kept from the hour of temptation.

Who will "keep" the church from this hour? Jesus said "I WILL" meaning he provides for the escape.

As the tribulation hour rockets down the rails towards us, its time to tidy up and loose ends that may be hanging off of us. We should be prepared in every way to leave this place. We must also be very patient. This is a tough line to walk. Completely prepared to leave, and completely ready to slug it out for however long the Lord sees fit to have us on earth. With our strength this is a tall order, but with the Spirit of God all things are possible. Jesus Christ is our provision on earth and in heaven. Remain IN HIM.

time is short, grace and peace

Obama and Lincoln

Have you noticed the extraordinary lengths the "powers that be" have gone through to link Obama with Lincoln in the minds of the American people? He road the "lincoln train" to the inaguration, he's given his speeches directly in front of the lincoln memorial, they are laying it on thick. Which brings me to my question...WHY?

When I think of Lincoln, I think of two things:

1. Civil War
2. Assassination

What is it that the people in high places want us to mentally link to? Are they trying to tell us something? Another thing to notice, Obamas inaguration takes place within 24 hours of Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration day....what happened to MLK jr? Assassinated.

Do you have any idea what would happen in this country if anything happened to Obama like that? People see Obama as an almost christ like figure. Things could get very very very ugly IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. That's how fast the life as you know it today could turn upside down.

I bring these things to your attention because they have been brought to my attention. The moral of the story is this...time is shorter, or could be shorter than you think. If the tribulation is at our doorstep, and the escape is BEFORE the tribulation, that means we have NO TIME LEFT. Time is the most precious commodity right now, not money.

Find what good you can do today and do it. Pray, be ready, remain "in Christ." The only things we can be sure of right now are the promises of God as they are written in his word. The promises of God are a ROCK that you can stand on. Our Lord is a refuge from the storm. Today more than ever, you NEED TO BE "in Christ." Everything else is a sidenote in history.
