We Were Created

“Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the heavens, and over the beasts, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that moves on the earth.  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.  Also, to every living thing of the earth, to every flying creature of the heavens, and to everything that moves on the earth, living creatures, I have given the green plants for food: thus.  And God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was extremely good. Thus, the evening and the morning: Day Six.”  Genesis 1:26-31   “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is clearly recognized by them, for God has revealed it to them.  For ever since the creation of the world the unseen things of Him are clearly perceived, being understood by the...

Left Behind

“Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit at My right hand, until I place Your enemies as Your footstool.  Jehovah shall send the staff of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies.  Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; in the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, You have the dew of Your youth.  Jehovah has sworn and will not regret it: You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.  The Lord at Your right hand shall shatter kings in the day of His wrath.  He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill them with dead bodies; He shall greatly shatter the heads over the earth.  He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; therefore He shall lift up the head.”  Psalms 110   Over the years I have seen many different takes on what happens when the Rapture occurs and during the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), better known as the Great Tribulation or Tribulation.  There has been many fanciful charts made up lining all of the catastrophes and judgments from God throughout a seven year period.  Numerous books have been written on the subject, even movies made depicting crisis after crisis after Christians have been Raptured.  Yet with the vast majority of these books, movies, studies and articles, while interesting, I have a large problem with.   “Remember this, and be a man; refresh the memory of your heart, you who rebel.  Remember the former things from a long time ago; for I am the Mighty God, and there is no other; I am God, and...

God’s Just Judgment

“For whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and whips every son whom He receives.”  Hebrews 12:6   “My son, do not reject the chastening of Jehovah, and do not loathe His correction; for whom Jehovah loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son with whom he is pleased.”  Proverbs 3:11-12   Without the chastening of the Lord, I don’t believe that our story would ever have had the necessity of being told.  The belief is that I was on the watchlists, noted by some in Washington DC, plus some investigative interest by the Michigan State Police, but without the Lord allowing chastising, my family would never have been one of the few that have been targeted, as of the moment.  A Believer, a true Christian, can not go on living a life that is contrary to following Jesus Christ and expect to not have consequences for their backslidden and carnal state.   Likewise the world can not continue on living as if there is no Creator and no consequences for their rebellion and sin.  While Believers are not without sin, continuing with a refusal to repent will lead to consequences from the Most High, if the offender is truly Saved.  God has provided the Way of Salvation through repentance and believing into His Son, Jesus Christ.  He has been patient with mankind, not wanting any to perish, but He was never going to tarry forever.   Understand that this is primarily written for those who have been Left Behind and now find themselves in the midst of the Tribulation.   “Do not be led astray, God is not mocked; for whatever a...

Even Unto Death

“For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even unto death.”  Psalms 48:14   This is being written as a warning to those who have been Left Behind.  The “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), commonly known as the Great Tribulation or Tribulation is upon the earth, the Rapture has now happened and those who truly were Christians are with the Lord.  There are people around the globe seeking answers, many presumably refusing to believe the lies purported by governments and fellow mankind.    A terrible time for all of mankind has begun as God is carrying out His Righteous judgment against Israel and the world.  Now choices have to be made, those who did not fully realize and deny the full true Gospel are likely awakened to a harsh reality, one that will have the hearts of many men failing them: they were Left Behind.   Americans probably have more hints and supposed knowledge about the last days because of the strong Judeo-Christian background of the United States.  Around the world many are Roman Catholics, Muslim, worship demons (Hindu) or other false religions, but in America there have always been some talk about the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the four horsemen, Armageddon, etc.  While much of that talk is speculation, false proclamations or even some interesting fictional scenarios, there is the belief amongst many generations that at some point ‘the end will come’.  This is written for those who are living in that time, the end has come!   You are now faced with a choice, if you are reading this early...

Nowhere to Hide!

“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!  For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”  Revelation 6:15-17   “Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us! and to the hills, Cover us!”  Luke 23:30   “And they shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, for the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble.  In that day a man shall throw his idols of silver and gold, which they made each man to bow down to, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the crevices of the rocks, and into the clefts of the cliffs, from the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth tremble.”  Isaiah 2:19-21   A book could be written on the ways that governments and private corporations data mine every single individual in existence.  The mass surveillance (both public and private), the loss of privacy and how to actually work around that system would make for some interesting reading material.  The only problem is that such a book or series of articles would...

For the Time Will Come

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, desiring to hear pleasant things, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.”  2nd Timothy 4:3-4   The apostasy of the Church did not happen overnight, nor was it done in the dark.  There has always been false religions throughout the world, just as there are today.  The original Church did not have a institutional name attached to it, but was simply defined as a body of Believers, disciples of Jesus Christ.    “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”  1st Corinthians 12:27   People simply do not want the truth and the world makes it just too easy to go along with the lie.  Constantly our education system teaches children humanistic values, evolution theories and sways around from allowing discussion regarding on whether or not there is a God.  They go so far that they actually teach children about other religions found throughout the world, including their holy days, practices and suggesting that the children should find one, if any, that fits their desire.    Growing up I went to a lackluster churches that did not have a zeal for following God’s truths, for loving Christ and living a life that was fully obedient to Him.  There were compromises on every level in the church.  The music was not honoring to God, the activities for the youth group were more geared to entertainment than learning about God and the majority of the...

They Choose Death

“Say to them: As I live, declares the Lord Jehovah, I take no delight in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways!”…  Ezekiel 33:11a   The other day with great anticipation I was watching the Wikileaks press release, during the middle of the night.  Joining many others watching, it had been rumored that there would be a leak by Julian Assange that would essentially end Hillary Clinton’s campaign.  I watched the intro and half-way listened to the speakers, finally giving up on waiting for an announcement after about 45 minutes and retiring to bed for the night.  It wouldn’t be until the next morning that I would check and the rumors about documents that would ruin Clinton’s campaign were unfounded.  During the time I had been watching the live feed to the press conference in Germany, I noticed that there was a comment section running on the YouTube page.   This feed was full of mostly anti-Clinton viewers, also eagerly awaiting some leaked revelation that would end her campaign.  With over 50 thousand people watching live, the amount of comments coming across on the side of the live feed was staggering, scrolling so fast that I could only read a comment or two, before the rest of them were buried by new comments.  My concern was raised as to how many of these from the anti-establishment movement comments were perverse, twisted and evil.  Would God grant them freedom from a society where the strong arm of the establishment seemingly presses upon them continuously?    The...

They Took The Bait

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, slanderers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away.”  2nd Timothy 3:1-5   “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads the whole world astray; he was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Revelation 12:9   It’s high noon in any city in America, lunch is being served at restaurants throughout the town.  Walk into any hip joint and you will observe a vast majority of occupants, whether alone at a table or with others, staring at a phone with a blank expression on their face.  Most, if you were to approach, are keeping up with their social media contacts throughout the day.   Walk into nearly any American home and observe the television flickering as programming is displayed on the large screen.  Whether there are actively people watching the shows or the television is just being used for background noise, it is on, in most homes over 40 hours per week.   Drive on the highway, particularly on a hot summer day with your window down and at a stop light you can hear the noise of the radios blaring with a variety of tunes, many coming off of a connected phone.   ...

At Any Moment

“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.”  1st Corinthians 15:51-52   “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, but My Father only.  But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,  and did not realize until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  Then two will be in the field: one is taken and the other is left.  Two will be grinding at the mill: one is taken and the other is left.  Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord comes.  But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief comes, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be dug through.  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man comes at an hour you do not expect.”  Matthew 24:36-44   How many people really understand that at some time, time itself is simply going to run out?  Those who are Saved will go to be with the Lord, those who are not will be left behind on...

Unprepared: Prepped Without Oil

“Then the kingdom of Heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five foolish.  Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all nodded and fell asleep.  And at midnight there was a cry: Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!  Then all those virgins arose and prepared their lamps.  And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.  But the wise answered, saying, No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut.  Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us!  But he answered and said, Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.  Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man comes.”  Matthew 25:1-13   I live in Kalispell, Montana.  In Kalispell there are many liberty, freedom-minded people from all sorts of walks of life who live either in town or nearby in Flathead County.  There is probably not a city in the United States, in terms of percentage of people, who are more liberty minded than those of Kalispell. ...
