The boldness in these last days is simple stunning to watch.  Christ told us it was coming, he told us what to expect, but I must say that seeing it unfold like this over these last few years has simply been stunning to watch.

Equally stunning is the fact that so many of the people we come in contact with each day are completely oblivious to what is going on around them.  There really will be a lot of people caught off guard when events force themselves upon them.

There is something seriously wrong with the catholic church doctrine.  They seem to be to much of this world, hording their treasures up here on earth, praying to Mary instead of Jesus, the Son of God.  Having to confess through a priest instead of directly to God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  Keeping Jesus on the cross, the crucifix.  Having Mary crying, not rejoicing that “He has Risen!”  He overcame death!  It no longer has a hold on us, we are free.  Jesus is not still on the cross, He is seated at the right hand of God, and He is coming back very soon for His bride.

I have many Catholic friends, and I pray to God every day and night that they have a personal relationship with Jesus, that they have accepted His free gift of salvation through belief in the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  That is the “works” required for salvation, nothing more, so that none can boast.

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

The Shocking Message Pope Francis Preached At New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral

| September 25, 2015 | at nowtheendbegins.com

The Pope, the self-proclaimed “vicar of Christ”, preaching a message of the FAILURE OF JESUS on the cross.

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18 (KJV)

Like many people, I missed the message that the Pope preached at St. Patrick’s Cathedral because it was not streamed live as far as I was aware. And honestly, I was much more interested from a prophecy perspective in what he was going to say to Washington and the United Nations. So I did not bother to take a peek and see what he preached at St. Patrick’s. When I did, I about fell off my chair.

First of all, Pope Francis gave a shout-out to his “Muslim brothers and sisters” when he said this – “I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice.” In case he doesn’t know, Islam clearly teaches that their god, Allah, has no son. None at all. So for a Christian to be a spiritual brother or sister with a Muslim is impossible. The Qu’ran boldly declares that Allah has no son:

It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is.”  Surah 19:35,36

Pope Francis has been wooing the Muslims into the Vatican tent for sometime now. In November of 2014, he prayed inside a Mosque in Istanbul, in December of 2014 Pope Francis defended Islam as a “religion of peace”, and just a few weeks ago issued the order for all Catholics in Europe to take in Muslim migrants to live with them in their homes.

But it didn’t stop there, not by a long shot. Pope Francis declared the work of Jesus on the cross to be a failure

Perhaps the most shocking, the most stunning words to ever come out of the Pope’s mouth had to do with him talking about the “failure of the Cross”. What?? It is because of Jesus on the cross, that we have salvation. It is because of the cross that we now have access to the Father and a FULL pardon for our sins. It is because of the cross that Heaven, and not Hell, is our destination. This is what he said:

“The cross shows us a different way of measuring success. Ours is to plant the seeds. God sees to the fruits of our labors. And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and not produce fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.”

That was it, not another word. You would expect him to say something like “while it appeared to be a failure to His disciples, the cross was actually a victory…” or some such thing. I have heard that preached many times before in church. But the thing is, he didn’t say that. He just simply stated that the life of Jesus on the cross “ended in failure”, which is a complete and total lie. How he could just leave it there, in defeat, to declare the cross a FAILURE and not expound one, tiny bit more is beyond imagination. The Pope, the self-proclaimed “vicar of Christ”, preaching a message of the FAILURE OF JESUS on the cross. Honestly, words fail me at this moment. Truly.

What better way could Pope Francis end a “sermon” whose opening remarks call Christ-rejecting, Hell-bound Muslims our “brothers and sisters”, and whose main point is the “failure of Jesus on the cross”, than by praying to Mary and asking for her blessing:

“Dear brothers and sisters, in a few moments, we will sing the Magnificat. Let us commend to our lady the work we have been entrusted to do. Let us join her in thanking god for the great things he has done…”

You can click here to read the full transcript of this sermon from the pit of Hell, but honestly, why would you want to?

Pope Francis, as far I am concerned, still retains his title of The False Prophet…and then some.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

Satan’s Post-Rapture Deception Planning

By Joe Southerland

My article, “What? The Good Guys are Left Behind?” [1] struck a nerve with a number of Christian readers, who pointed out a big hole in the apostate church’s explanation. Here are two such queries:

Are the tens of millions of babies, and children who are taken in the Rapture considered the bad guys? It will be hard to explain when the babies disappear from homes, and hospital baby wards, when toddlers disappear from all over the world-when the millions of bodies of dead babies, and dead children disappear from their graves. How will the wonderful apostate church explain this. Are the innocent babies and children also the bad guys?

No one seems to talk about how it will be explained that all the babies and young children, even those in the womb will be raptured, too. What is the world going to be like…what is this world going to think when there are no babies and children and all previously expecting wombs of non believers are now no longer pregnant.

Great questions and comments, and thanks for provoking my thoughts further on this topic.

In an earlier article I discussed, that watchers were given a glimpse behind the curtains to see a small piece of Satan’s deception plan he is preparing in case the Rapture occurs.

I say “in case the Rapture occurs” because we must remember Satan is not omniscient, and while he is fully aware of the Rapture doctrine, he is not really sure the event will occur. However, being the wisest of God’s creatures, he has fully prepared an elaborate contingency plan which he will rapidly execute if needed.

His plan will not only account for the disappearances of all born-again believers, the children, the babies and the unborn, but he will shape this deception to accomplish far, far more than that.  Satan’s false Rapture message will present one of his grandest lies, a true masterpiece of evil, and potentially the greatest fraud ever perpetrated against mankind as it will lay the groundwork for his entire end-time evil cabal.

And the core basis of that deception has been in plain sight before us to see for decades gaining momentum year after year.

What a Difference a Year Makes

Last year I posted a Rapture Ready article which discussed the potential lies the Antichrist and False Prophet would present to the masses as he rises to power; echoing Satan’s previous poster boy and antichrist trial balloon Adolf Hitler. [2]

At that time I could not conceive how anyone, even Satan, could convincingly wrap a viable deception around a global event the size and magnitude of the Rapture. So I just moved past Satan’s Rapture deception and discussed the potential propaganda lies of the coming world leader, the Antichrist.

But what a difference a year makes. Based upon a flood of recent news, press releases and coalescing secular and religious world views, I believe there is sufficient evidence to speculate on the Satan-inspired deception that the left behind religious, political and even scientific leaders will swallow hook, line and sinker to explain away the Rapture…babies and all.

Before I go further…let me fully clarify upfront that this is not a spiritual revelation on my part, but solely speculation based upon what Scriptures the Lord God provides, and the light that it sheds upon global social, religious, economic, and political trends in these closing days of the Church Age.

The Post Rapture World Stage

Satan has fully forecasted the global conditions of a post-Rapture world, and has formulated, and in fact is already working on his deception to take advantage of the confusion and chaos.  Satan knows that the post-Rapture world will provide a unique opportunity like none other to shape global economics, spirituality, and politics.

Economically: The financial disruptions will vary by region, with the greatest impacts in the previously blessed strongholds of the Lord God.  America hedged and blessed by the Lord God for so long, with its relatively high percentage of Believers making up a large chunk of its labor force, will likely collapse.  As America, the leading economy in the world, implodes she will likely drag the rest of the globe’s modern economies with her in the greatest financial depression in history.  An economic recovery plan will be demanded by the world, and Satan’s plan will offer global stability, though at a sacrifice.

Spiritually: The entire post-Rapture population will be composed of people who are in rebellion against God, be it active or passive. Those left behind will be false god worshipers, fence-sitters or god deniers without any spiritual discernment. They will be biblically mistaken, misguided or illiterate and critical for Satan’s deception (emotionally and intellectually vulnerable), having just experienced the most unbelievable supernatural event the world has collectively experienced since Noah’s flood.  A spiritual answer will be demanded, and Satan’s plan will provide something to believe in.

Politically: The Holy Spirit will no longer hold back Satan’s actions, and his minion’s dark influences will rapidly descend upon or solidify their positions in every town hall and courthouse at the city, state, federal and global level. In the West the born-again Christians who represented the more conservative elements in society will be gone, and the liberal elements within politics will hold sway like never before.   Citizens will demand a new political vision and ideas, and Satan’s plan will provide that leadership.

The Demands of the Rapture Deception

Satan has anticipated that to successfully carry out his deception message he must at a minimum deal with following issues:

– Explain why everyone who remained on the earth stayed, while the Believers in Christ to include all the children and unborn babies disappeared in an instant.

– Soothe and mollify the frantic, near inconsolable parents of all the millions of babies and children from every races and religion on the face of the earth.

– Provide an explanation which is palatable world-wide and transcends multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious boundaries.

– Provide a supernatural explanation to a clearly supernatural event witnessed and digitally recorded by hundreds of millions of people across the globe.

– Lastly and most important for Satan, this deception must serve to solidify the morale high-ground needed to form/unite his one world apostate church, and grant global governing authority to a one world government which the Antichrist will soon inherit.

The Delivery of the Rapture Deception

For his Rapture deception mouthpieces, Satan will use the worthless shepherds of the world’s apostate and false religions who led their flocks astray. Yet the spiritually blind people of earth will be groping in dark desperation, and return to the same spiritually blind guides to explain this extraordinary, supernatural event.

In their arrogance, the apostate, false religious leaders will be in complete denial of the Bible’s Rapture scriptures which the born-again Believers pointed to predicting this exact event.   We already know from an apostate churches priest’s own words [1] they already believe the “good guys” will stay, while the “bad guys,” the intolerant, bigoted, inerrant Bible believers will be taken away by a god.

However, they will be perplexed why would a loving “god” remove babies and children from the planet? What compelling compassionate reason would their many-paths-to-god, universal-grace-to-all-god have to perform such an act?

Amidst their anguish, Satan will shoot his fiery darts into the minds of these blind guides, which they in turn will pass as spiritual guidance and redirection to the confused and godless world masses.  The answers Satan will give these apostate leaders will be wrapped around a core issue which Satan has been tracking behind the scenes; an issue which is now being pushed to the forefront as we draw near to the Rapture.

So what is the core issue which Satan will build his post-Rapture “Big Lie” deception around?  Here is one very plausible possibility:

A Core Issue on Which to Build

Here it is: “Mankind’s activities have overheated the earth to the extent that unless the human race acts collectively and dramatically the earth will become uninhabitable and the human race will cease to exist as a species.”

I know what some you are thinking.   “What?  Man-made global warming?  Climate change?  That is the core issue Satan can build his post-Rapture deception upon?  Really?”

At first read this seems rather tame, but you need to remember the audience Satan is addressing will be desperate for an explanation, and many of those who remain have already solidified this into their core set of beliefs. Man-made global warming fits the bill.

I will not argue whether it is the truth or a hoax, nor its origins, nor its politics, nor who is pushing the agenda. That is not germane to this specific discussion. What is important is that it is a mature concept which is perceived as a critical issue by many across the globe, and is at Satan’s disposal to manipulate for his purposes.

For decades manmade global warming has placed man at the center of his universe and presents to him an issue he believes he can fix.  Man-made global warming also pre-judges everyone on the planet as guilty, and then demands everyone make immediate personal sacrifices in order to “Save the planet!”

Despite being built on admittedly, partially manipulated data that resulted in a public relations nightmare which demanded a name change to Climate Change, it has not only survived, it has thrived. Many people worldwide now accept it as a fact, and the manmade global warming agenda has spread among all the nations, religions and creeds of the earth through the education systems, news outlets, entertainment industries, our science institutions, and our governments.

It has also generated a nearly religious following which generates animosity to those who do not follow similar beliefs, and labels them “Global-Warming deniers.”

It has become a primary policy driver in many national governments (now including the United States due to Obama), of the United Nations, and of many main stream religions (to include the Catholic Church due to Pope Francis), all of whom urge the passing of global legislation to deal with this pending crisis.

Manmade global warming is primed and sets ready for Satan to exploit.

Feeding the Big Lie to a Post Rapture World

On the heels of the Rapture, with the core beliefs of the big lie already firmly established across the globe, Satan is prepared to seamlessly dovetail in his post-Rapture deception. Behind the scenes he will work to have the global religious leaders and the United Nations and national politicians work hand in hand to introduce and then promote his deceptive, “last best hope for mankind” ploy.

With unequalled anticipation and fanfare, unknowingly or not, Satan’s inspired religious and political leaders will conduct an official global release of their message, broadcasting it live and translating it into every language through every media outlet across the entire globe. Piously and soberly they will stand before rows of flags, dressed in their finest vestments and tailored suites, while their spokesman reads a message which will sound something akin to this:

In light of the recent miraculous events and the ensuing crisis, the Global Council of Religions of the United Nations unanimously proclaims:

God who is known by many names, has clearly provided us a warning to make it known mankind’s activities have abused, exhausted, and overheated the earth to the extent that unless the human race acts collectively and dramatically, humans will make the earth uninhabitable and the human race will cease to exist as a species.

God’s infinite mercy and compassion have temporarily removed the earth’s innocents to a place of protection so they will not face the near term consequences of mankind’s crime against mother earth.  Once mankind returns the earth to harmony, God will miraculously return the children to a cleaner, safer and more sustainable earth.  Know that your children are safe with God.

God’s infinite mercy and wisdom have removed some of the earth’s most intolerant people who judged others and who would stand in the way of bringing harmony with mother earth.  In this act, God has confirmed love for all by condemning hatred, bigotry, or intolerance of any kind against any race, religion, color, ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, or gender orientation.

 

God has placed upon mankind a moral obligation to work as one people, to set aside national and personal agendas so together we can make the necessary changes and sacrifices to save mother earth, our species, and secure the safe return of our innocents.   May God provide you strength and peace of mind as we work in unity to mend and remove those things which have offended God and Mother Earth.”

Hmmm…so there you have it.

Will manmade global warming be the backdrop issue Satan will use, or will it be one of the many other brands Satan has in the fire?  Regardless what lie he weaves, Satan is working behind the scenes preparing his lies, which he will use to launch his one world religion and government.

As time draws closer Satan will show more glimpses of his plans, which will be evident for those who watch with the Bible open and the council of the Holy Spirits in their hearts.

A final quote for thought:

“Everything is related, and we human beings are united as brothers and sisters on a wonderful pilgrimage, woven together by the love God has for each of His creatures and which also unites us in fond affection with brother sun, sister moon, brother river, and mother earth.”    (Pope Francis, 2015)

Come Lord Jesus, Come!

P.S.   For full disclosure purposes, I am a hard-line man made global warming denier. It is going to take the Lord God and His Son Jesus Christ to clean up the mess Man is making, and I am not just talking about the environment.

“Watchmen on the Wall”

By Jim Torres

“Watchmen on the wall,” that’s how Ezekiel describes the prophets of Israel whom God had appointed to warn His wayward people of impending judgment. God tells the prophet, “When I say to the wicked, O wicked man you shall surely die’ and do not speak to warn the wicked from their way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”

Christians who are called to this duty must comply or also face God’s displeasure. This is no easy task since atheism and secularism is on the rise, especially in our country. Thus, a handful of watchmen have been warning others for many years now, as God in His mercy always gives sufficient warning before He acts decisively. God, our Creator, derives no pleasure in bringing judgment on his creation.

In fact, He would have all people everywhere repent and seek His face. This small number of prophets, evangelists and preachers carry what for most would seem to be a very heavy burden of shouting out a warning or reprimand to willful sinners, calling for repentance.

They who see these things coming down the pike through spiritual eyes in light of the scriptures are truly blessed and prepared to meet their maker, regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in. Today, even half-baked Christians know something is going on and live their lives in fear as they see the world falling apart.

On the other hand, there are some who are so far gone that they are becoming willfully depraved and even evil as (more…)

8 Clear Signs of a Compromising Church

1. In the confessing church, Christ is over culture. The compromising church accommodates Christ to culture. The confessing church believes Jesus is Lord over all creation. Hence, they attempt to reflect Christ in every area of culture. The compromising church has a posture of accommodation. Hence, the Christ they believe in and preach is shaped by the culture they live in.

2. The confessing church holds fast to the Word of God in spite of opposition. The compromising church alters the Word of God because of opposition. Soon in America it is quite possible that it will be illegal to preach from certain passages of the Bible dealing with human sexuality. Because of this, many will alter their theology to fit the culture while the confessing church will preach the Word of God in spite of governmental fines, penalties, lawsuits and even serving time in jail.

3. The confessing church puts the kingdom of God above their culture and ethnicity. The compromising church puts their ethnicity before the kingdom of God. The German Church during the Nazi era put nationalism and their Aryan heritage above the Word of God. Many pastors and believers today view the Scriptures more through the lens of their ethnicity and national heritage than through a proper exegesis of Scripture.

When, and if, our nation officially makes biblical Christianity illegal, we will soon see who will be the confessors and who will be the compromisers. In many ways, practicing biblical Christianity is already illegal when it comes to believers attempting to walk out their faith in the marketplace because private Christian-owned businesses do not have the same level of protection today as do local churches.

4. The confessing church alters their methods of preaching. The compromising church alters the message they preach. While it is wise and biblical for the body of Christ to be relevant to culture regarding the preaching of the gospel, it should never put being relevant above being faithful. The compromising church puts being relevant before biblical faithfulness. Hence, they not only change the method of preaching but also the message they preach.

5. The confessing church is a remnant in the minority of church and state. The compromising church wants to be in the mainstream of both church and state.  The confessing church endures long seasons of feeling like aliens and strangers in their own communities. The compromising church wants to be in the mainstream of culture more than living in the divine flow of God’s favor and presence.

6. The confessing church is penalized by the state government. The compromising church is applauded by the state government. While the confessing church is hunted down and ostracized by the humanistic state, the compromising church is celebrated by the far-left radicals and used as a model of how church and state should function together.

7. The confessing church prophetically speaks truth to power. The compromising church conforms to those in power. The confessing church knows that at various seasons in their existence they will not gain a lot of converts and/or experience societal transformation. The best they can do is to maintain a prophetic witness to the cultural elites and surrounding communities. Since the compromising church enjoys the power and prestige the elites grant them, they always conform rather than confront.

8. The confessing church desires the praise of God. The compromising church desires the praise of men. Ultimately at the end of the day it boils down to this: Are we living for the praise of men or the praise of God? If things don’t change in the coming days, we will be shocked at how many megachurches, mid-size churches and smaller churches compromise the word of God so they could continue to keep their doors open.

At some point we will all have to stand the ultimate test, which is whether we desire God more than we love our lives, or whether we love our pleasures, conveniences and material goods more than God. Truly, if we confess Christ before men He will confess us before His Father in heaven, but if we deny Him before men He will deny us before His Father in heaven (Matt. 10:32-33).

God told us we would see these things, but even though I knew in my mind they would begin, still has a stunning effect of disbelief.  I thought Robert had the best definition that I had heard in a while of a Reprobate mind.

This is what I call a reprobate mind, believing in a lie as if it’s the truth.

Another powerful statement from the article below summed up what my eyes are seeing and my heart is feeling these days as view the world through my Christian worldview lens:

One cannot trust anything that is written or heard in media anymore. The news networks are nothing more than indoctrination centers, spinning webs of deceit, and promoting false narratives to advance their agendas. Television programs are full of evil, as if this is the new normal. One cannot click through the channels without seeing gratuitous sex or hearing vulgar language. Schools are teaching our children Godless messages and punishing them should they say anything good or true about God. God is not allowed in the public square any longer. Even in the churches, ministers now teach and embrace homosexuality as if God has changed His mind. They call evil good and good evil.

So what is one to do in these dark days?

So, what is a Christian to do? What I do on a daily basis is look at current events and study the Bible. I read everything I can to keep up with the times, doing my prayerful best to discern God’s truth. It has become clear to me that America, as a nation, is in the throes of death. I believe this is the end game folks. Sodom and Gomorrah has nothing on us. But take heart, as this is not our home. We are citizens of Heaven. As Christians, we should not be surprised; we knew this was to happen according to the Word of God. We Christians need to pray constantly; we need to pray for our nation and also our enemies. God is in control and knows our troubles.  He understands everything that is going on. Satan’s days are numbered and Gods return is so very close. We need to reach out and tell anyone who is willing to hear the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord and salvation awaits them.

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

The Reprobate Mind

By Robert Campbell

Well folks, I must say that I am not surprised at what I am seeing in America today, but I am very sad and concerned. In fact, what I’m observing is making more sense to me than ever before. The Scriptures do tell us that in the end times evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived (2 Tim 3:13).

We certainly saw that on display after the decision in Ferguson—the decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. This was an absolute correct and Godly decision. What I observed in the aftermath was an ungodly mob of people with reprobate minds. I saw people under Satan’s spell—folks doing evil on the level of what was seen during Hitler’s time and Stalin’s regime. What I witnessed was the evil of Satan himself.

The fact is, the people of Ferguson want to lynch a white police officer for doing his job. Darren Wilson killed a thug that robbed a store and then tried to do him harm. He had every right to defend himself. But, the mob won’t have it. Now they have destroyed Officer Wilson’s dream of being a peace keeper and having a normal life. He will be hunted down relentlessly by lawless people, including those in the media who saw nothing unethical in printing the address of his private residence. They want us to believe that it’s racial injustice, when in fact it’s reverse racism. This is what I call a reprobate mind, believing in a lie as if it’s the truth.

The people who participated in that absolute mayhem, burning down churches and small businesses in their own community, seemingly do not know the evil of their actions, or perhaps do not care. They are totally engrossed in anarchy—they are people with reprobate minds. They seem to have no clue of what is right or wrong. They simply exist—going about their lives while being manipulated by their false preachers, the president, the NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, congressmen and women, the media, lawyers, and so on.

What I see is the utter destruction of the American black race. A destruction so rapid yet scrupulous that they did not even see it coming. They fell for the lies. They eagerly accepted the handouts given to them with a wink and a nod—completely unaware that there would eventually be a price to pay. There is always a price. They fell for the rhetoric of the race hustlers and preachers—men and women who are only out for personal power, wealth, and fame.

The state of the American black community today, in my view, is the direct result of black men abandoning their families to be raised by the women they impregnate. These people have been brainwashed, and government and media are complicit. The welfare state has done no favors to black America. Instead, it has destroyed our families and made us dependent on Uncle Sam.

There is so much anger in the black community, because they believe what they have been told—that they had no choice in the outcome of their lives. They are victims, and they are owed. Race hustlers and other Godless people have risen up, through their own self-promotion, as “leaders,” only to take advantage of the black community. They organize and manipulate these people for their own selfish purposes. They agitate the black community, who in turn becomes highly emotional at the hands of these race baiters and Godless “leaders,” and seemingly loses any sense of right or wrong. Many of those people will claim to be Christians, yet they do evil, and believe in lies. I would ask them, “Where was Christ in the burning of Ferguson?”

If the preachers in the black community are able to distinguish evil, and I wonder if this is so, they will not speak out against it. Instead, they shout the same song and dance sermons that have been heard a million times—inciting hatred and anger among those who listen. I’m so saddened to see a race of people, my people, who were blessed by God to come to this great nation. A people who have now become worse than the ones who had us in chains a long time ago.

What I see happening to America in every corner of our once great society is astonishing! We are being overcome by evil and it has permeated our culture in every respect.

One cannot trust anything that is written or heard in media anymore. The news networks are nothing more than indoctrination centers, spinning webs of deceit, and promoting false narratives to advance their agendas. Television programs are full of evil, as if this is the new normal. One cannot click through the channels without seeing gratuitous sex or hearing vulgar language. Schools are teaching our children Godless messages and punishing them should they say anything good or true about God. God is not allowed in the public square any longer. Even in the churches, ministers now teach and embrace homosexuality as if God has changed His mind. They call evil good and good evil.

The POTUS has waved his magic wand, once again, and opened the door to illegal aliens, which will result in the final devastation of the black community. Blacks will never be able to get jobs and lift themselves out of poverty under this lawless action, even if they wanted to. The Hispanics will be next in line for the ruin that overtook the black community. They will now be the cheap labor for the liberal elites, making their beds, and picking their produce, while the privileged live in their gated communities under the protection of security guards.

More than 80% of black Americans—to this day—support the president. They have followed an evil man to their own destruction and they don’t even know it. They will continue to follow him, despite having become worse off under his policies. Unemployment, crime, disintegration of the black family, and lack of economic opportunity have all increased for the black community under this president’s administration. Black folks know this—President Obama and other evil and vile men and women have destroyed what was left of any moral values and Godly traits that we once held dear. I, of course, am not talking about all black folks but I am talking about most of them.

Now let me say this. Thirty-five states have now legalized same-sex marriage. That means we have 15 states to go before this is the law of the nation. I wonder what the churches will be preaching then. Will it be business as usual? Will they remain silent so as not to offend the LGBT community? Will they continue to overlook the sin that God hates? Look at what happened in Houston when their lesbian mayor subpoenaed sermons being preached in churches—intimidating preachers who spoke the truth, and the congregants who supported them. Those subpoenas were only withdrawn under an enormous backlash from the Christian community. I believe this was a shot across the bow against religious liberty in this nation, and it’s going to get worse. Be ready. When same-sex marriage goes legal, nationwide, what do you think will happen to the church?

America is in trouble on all fronts. Black communities are being destroyed. Hispanic’s are the next group to be castoff. Whites are afraid to stand up and speak the truth for fear of being called racist. Some churches are watering down God’s truth for fear of offending anyone, and perhaps losing donations. And, our government is now largely run by evil men and women, out for their own selfish purposes.

So, what is a Christian to do? What I do on a daily basis is look at current events and study the Bible. I read everything I can to keep up with the times, doing my prayerful best to discern God’s truth. It has become clear to me that America, as a nation, is in the throes of death. I believe this is the end game folks. Sodom and Gomorrah has nothing on us. But take heart, as this is not our home. We are citizens of Heaven. As Christians, we should not be surprised; we knew this was to happen according to the Word of God. We Christians need to pray constantly; we need to pray for our nation and also our enemies. God is in control and knows our troubles.  He understands everything that is going on. Satan’s days are numbered and Gods return is so very close. We need to reach out and tell anyone who is willing to hear the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord and salvation awaits them.

As I have said in past articles, I have sinned and wounded God’s heart.   But, I have confessed my sins and asked God to forgive me. He did, and He turned my life around. He can do that for you too. We need to pray for Darren Wilson, his new bride, and his unborn baby. We also need to pray for Michael Brown’s family; that they will see God’s light. And, please continue to pray for the Jews and Israel.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

It is The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To learn more check out the following link.

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Watch and Do Not Grow Weary

Pete Garcia

Ever feel as though you are all alone, in waiting for the Lord to return? Do you attend a church that would rather give a seminar on the Ebola virus, than the Lord’s return? Ever feel as though you want to watch and wait, but then life takes over and you get caught up dealing with the problems and cares of this life? Ever feel as though you simply don’t have enough hours in the day to devote to spending time with God? Ever feel as though you don’t think you make a difference?

Well friend, if you’ve ever felt that way, you are not alone. Since my reconversion in 2007, I can honestly say, I’ve felt all the above on numerous occasions, for extended periods. I know it’s not any fun, and I know that in those moments, it seems unproductive, but let me share a quote with you from Winston Churchill:

“Mountaintops inspire leaders, but valleys mature them.”

Arguably, what has cemented my passion for the Bible all these years has been prophecy…even when I was drifting away from God. It was in those times that I often thought that the low points of my spiritual walk were simply self-inflicted products of my own faulty understanding and interpretation. Or that in my flesh, my relapses into former habits somehow kept knocking me down to new lows and I would never grow as a believer.

But even in my lowest of lows, I could never not be expectant of the Lord’s return. I just pushed it out of my mind and tried not to think about it. There were times when I even tried to think like other Christian’s, who didn’t seem to have that same awareness. Somehow if I could just get on board with the ‘flavor of the week” Christian movement, I could somehow be more productive and have more friends.

Besides, wasn’t I tired of always being labeled the “gloom and doomer?” My friends and family would ask me, “Why do you always focus on the negatives?”                 Or that “We aren’t called to sit around and just look up into the sky all day, we need to be busy doing the Lord’s work.” I’m accused of being obsessed about the Lord’s return, and that I am a “one-trick pony” always going on about the same subject. All I can say is, “Guilty as charged.” I might be a “gloom and doomer” but that’s only because the world is racing toward an eternal abyss, and where it is heading is no joy in that message.

My spiritual walk has oftentimes felt like one gigantic valley. It’s always uphill both ways, and I feel at times, incredibly isolated.                 I’ve attended two prophecy conferences in my life…one in 1991, and the other in 2009.                 I simply don’t have the time, money, or resources to ever go to the big ones…in part due to my job, and also due to my personal commitments. So if you’re out there and you feel alone, please don’t. I mean, you are in the physical sense temporarily alone, although you have a network of believers most of which you haven’t met on this side of the Rapture, but will rejoice all the more on the other side of it.

Assessment

I believe that the seven churches in Revelation 2-3 not only speak to the individuals and congregations of John’s day, but also to the seven specific periods of time chronicling church history. There is one repeated phrase in each of the letters; look at what Jesus has to say to each church: “I know your works.”

Jesus is not unfamiliar with our struggles. Remember, it is He who is walking amongst the candle-stands, and it is He who holds the seven stars in His hands. He is intimately familiar with each of our struggles, and what we as a “corporate” body of believers go through in each day, and in each era. I also believe that the last four churches are in existence at the same time, and notice what He has to say to those faithful Philadelphian believers…

“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.                 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.                 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown” (Rev. 3:8-11, emphasis added).

Do the modern day, Pre-Millennial, Pre-Tribulation dispensationalists feel like they have a lot of strength these days?                 Hardly.                 Look at America’s Pastor for instance; clearly a man who cares little for the prophetic word, yet, he’s made tens of millions of dollars off of books he’s written.                 His influence in the evangelical world is impressive…yet even he has little influence over significantly important geo-political matters.

How much less am I who writes online once a week? I can’t hold a conference and have thousands of people attend. I can’t write a book that sells millions of copies. Well, I mean I could if God had wanted me too, but that is not what I’m speaking to. God has allowed the weak and beggarly things (me) to continue on for a purpose.

God has placed me in this time in this place, for a specific purpose, and has allowed my life to turn out as such, that I would bring my unique set of circumstances and understandings to the public forum…not for my glory, but for His. I struggle at times, and I told Jack that every topic I wanted to write about, has already been written about six ways from Sunday.

He told me that that didn’t matter. What matters is that I write it from my perspective, which has never been written before. And so off I went, and now three years have passed and I don’t regret a single word I’ve put into print. Honestly, I don’t know the reach of what I write, and all I hope, is that I’ve helped get the message out that this age is coming to an end, and that our Lord is returning soon!

But guess what else? He’s done the same for you. The prophets of old and the apostles and the early church fathers, and everyone since then, has LONGED to see the days in which we live.                 To see Israel back in her land. To see the world coming about just as the Bible said it would. We live in exciting times and in this moment when our anticipation and excitement should be peaking, Satan is ramping up the pressure to keep us subdued, suppressed, and deflated.

He does this through work, through bills, through negative responses from friends and family, through distractions, through an oppressive culture that all but begs you to give up the faith, and come back to “reality.” Not to say that Satan has possessed friends and family along the way, but Satan greatest power in this age, is as an influencer, and the world is currently under his sway. So although we preach the truth and watch and wait, and anticipate the Lord’s return, Satan has a way of raining on our parades. But that’s okay, because we know how our story ends.

1 Corinthians 15:51-57:

“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’

‘O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?’

The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

John states that we who have placed our faith in Jesus Christ in this age, are already overcomers. While we are privileged to live in such an age, it does not come without a price. Although we know how it all ends, there is still the problem we face as we have to live out our faith in a world that is all but collapsing spiritually, mentally, and culturally around us.

We are called to endure and to wait upon the Lord’s perfect timing. Just like those who lived in Christ’s day did not understand what had to transpire, looking back, they can see God’s perfect plan unfolding in such a way that even Satan himself, could neither foresee, nor forestall, what was to take place.

“However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Cor. 2:6-8).

So do as Christ instructed, hold up your heads and look for His soon return. For He will not delay one second longer than necessary, but will wait until that last person places their eternal destiny in His nail-scarred hands. Do not let the worries of this life get you down because eternity awaits, and the time we spent here will in comparison seem like a grain of sand on a road that stretches on forever.

“Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants” (Luke 12:37-38).

The Lord promises to those who wait for Him, that their reward will be great. Our reward will not just been in what comes after the Rapture, but also before the Rapture. We do not worry like the pagans about what tomorrow brings.

We do not worry about the current chaos that is quickly enveloping the world, because it is happening just like the Bible predicted. If anything, that should bolster our faith in God’s Word.                 We do not even worry about what comes after death…because we worship a risen Savior who conquered death, hell, and the grave.

So keep a watchful eye, and an expectant heart. And remember that this world is merely a dulled shadow of things much greater to come. Let our prayer be, that if the Lord tarries another 20 years, that we still be found faithful and expectant and ever mindful of our Lord’s warning…

“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly” (Luke 21:34).

Scientists Admit Defeat And Ask Pope Francis To Help Combat Global Warming
In what is being described as a ‘watershed moment’, a group of scientists have called on Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church to help combat global warming. It sounds a rather bizarre relationship doesn’t it? relying on politicians to combat global warming is not enough and that engaging faith leaders could be just the spark required to ignite billions of people around the world into changing aspects of their lifestyles to prevent… climate change.

False Christs Arising Worldwide Claiming to Be Second Coming of Jesus
A number of false Christs have been arising in various nations worldwide, claiming to be the second coming of Jesus. While many are following these self-proclaimed Messiahs, some are speaking out against their cults, being mindful of Christ’s words in Matthew 24:5, “For many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and shall deceive many.”

Poll: Liberals Ignore Religion, Value Teaching Tolerance
A new survey by the Pew Research Center shows that liberals think teaching tolerance to children is far more important than instilling religious faith, whereas conservatives think the exact opposite.
