Daniels Blog – Celebrating 22 Years of Online Ministry

After many years in the pastoral ministry that required personal one on one discipleship, door to door evangelism, preaching, teaching, and counseling, it was a tremendous change to minister to a faceless audience in an online ministry, which took time to develop long-distance relationships. Back in 1998, the worldwide web was still in its infancy, and building a website was not the easiest task. I still have fond memories of my wife and I visiting an internet provider owned and operated by my oldest son, Jonathan. He had his full-time programmer1998 Website help me build my first website from scratch with no pre-made templates or WordPress. But how does one have a presence on the worldwide web? Google was a big help in those early days when they were still relatively new. We grew together on how to make one’s website easily searchable for as many people as possible, trying one promotional idea after another. In the beginning, our online ministry mainly consisted of writing blog articles, which was an easy task for I had spent many years writing out all of my weekly sermons as a fulltime pastor. Many of these old sermons found their way into my new website with an eagerness to reach the world for Christ.

Next came our online bookstore featuring all of my books, Final Warning, Stand Firm, Revelation Truth, and Guiding Principles for Biblical Counseling. Although I was selling books in the bookstores, and online through Google and Amazon, it was a thrill to offer my books directly to God’s children allowing me to write personal messages to those making purchases. Then, some brave people came up with an idea of recording their message and making it into a Podcast, and with the help of some other websites and organizations, this idea soon became a reality. My first venture was posting a weekly Podcast called “Final Warning” with Apple’s iTunes. In time we were able to play these Podcasts directly from our website using an mp3 format. These were exciting times, letting our voices be carried around the world proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ. It was not long before the weekly Podcast was not so popular with the introduction of online videos through Google’s YouTube Videos. So, we started making videos for our new channel, Revelation Truth, from our current articles directed toward what we would later refer to as the faithful remnant. Of course, these videos could also, in time, be viewed directly from our website. This new ministry of making videos became very popular with our online followers.

While in the pastoral ministry, I always had the heart to help hurting people by way of Biblical counseling, which opened another new avenue of allowing people to write in through the website contact form to receive needed counseling. In time this new venture led us to start another website to help those who struggle daily with emotional and psychological problems, along with fierce attacks from the enemy. Many of these precious believers did not have a clear understanding of God’s promise to make them into a brand-new creation in Christ, where old things truly pass away. We prayed and counseled for all those who came our way. Let me encourage you to take a moment and visit our other website: “CAPA-Christians Against Psychiatric Abuse” at https://www.allcapa.org This ministry of personally praying and counseling our website visitors eventually led me to write out all of my daily prayers and post them on both websites, which I have done for the past three years. The Daily Devotion has been such a tremendous blessing to us as we lead God’s beloved children in prayer strengthening them to stand firm while they continue to grow up in Christ.

With the help of some very talented and gifted vocalists, we started another channel at YouTube called Tribulation Radio, where we added music, prayers, and commentaries to our messages developing wonderfully inspired videos to the glory of God, which also appear on our website. To give God’s children news from a godly perspective we currently podcast a News Brief and a relevant prayer as God directs. We also podcast reading of the entire book of Revelation in a beautiful theatrical presentation for our online visitors. Well, it was not long before we decided to stream our own internet Radio 24/7, which of course, we called, Tribulation Radio, direct from our website. TribulationTribulation Radio Radio is meant to encourage the faithful remnant living in the Last Days by allowing them to listen to encouraging Christian Music, and relevant messages to help them to stand firm in a turbulent world. Don’t miss our Old Time Gospel Hour and Music for Prayer and Meditation. Yes, these have been some very exciting times working with many different people from around the world making this truly a worldwide ministry. Come and discover all the things we offer to help God’s elect children become all that He wants them to be. This has been a wonderful journey with many beloved saints helping us make Daniels Blog what it is today. We have been “Proclaiming Revelation Truth Since 1998.” So, please help us to celebrate our 22 years of our online ministry, this month. God bless you all.

The World’s Being Prepared for a Savior

Most people in the world today feel lost, which can cause them great fear. This awful feeling of fear can be compared to the unrelenting dreams, that many have experienced, where the scenery and strangers keep changing as one struggles to find their way or make sense of what’s happening. This feeling of being lost can last for what seems like hours. And for those who try to help you find your way, you soon discover that they are also lost, pointing you in one direction and then in another. It’s like many are suffering from some repressive psychological problem acting one way and then another. Then, you discover that it’s not a dream! Welcome to the real world of today. Nothing makes any sense. It’s like everyone is on their own little quest to discover the latest conspiracy theory or uncovering some unknown prophecy, trying desperately to make sense of a world gone mad. The lostness and fear are heightened as people continually point fingers at one another, finding fault, bashing one another, or making excuses for their bad behavior. This is all covered meticulously by the news media and followed closely by social media dragging the entire nation through the same drama. After many days of prayer and meditation, the answer finally comes. The world is being prepared for its savior.

The world is looking for a savior to deliver them from this quagmire of viruses, protestors, and unresponsive leaders going in one direction then another. In a lot of ways, it’s like those unrelenting dreams, just waiting for someone, anyone, to lead the way out of the growing catastrophe that’s besieged our world. This personage, whoever it will be, will not speak making annoying gaffes, nor will he make a litany of excuses for his outrageous statements that cause many to shake their heads in disbelief. No, this person will speak boldly, decisively, and yes, even with an aura of pride. This person will not be hated or despised by the media. Whomever this person is, he will have the full support of the news media. This is very important because the news media has been influencing the hearts and minds of the population for many years now. This began when they stopped just reporting the evening news and went to twenty-four-hour news coverage with commentators telling everyone how they should think, how they should feel, and how they should react to what’s happening in the world. I am convinced that the powers of darkness have been behind the scenes for many years now manipulating the news media to bring forth its agenda. Yes, the powers of darkness do have an agenda.

Their agenda is to prepare the world for the coming son of perdition, who goes by many different names: the man of lawlessness, the beast, and the Antichrist. Simply put his agenda is to remove the rule of law that has governed all societies of men since the Roman Empire. Anyone with eyes to see has witnessed this happening for the past sixty years. This began in the classroom teaching our children that the rule of law did not apply to them, allowing them to experiment with the grossest of immorality simply as freedom of expression. This concluded with the Ten Commandments being removed from most courthouses and government buildings as our society plummets into the depth of immorality mirroring ancient Rome. As bad as things are, it’s not quite bad enough for the powers of darkness. The Bible says, “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way” (II Thessalonians 2:7). That is, the rule of law that was established in Ancient Rome and carried forth to this day will be taken out of the way and the one doing that is the powers of darkness. That is their agenda. Their agenda simply put, is not only to remove God’s law of morality but to remove all law and order, paving the way for the man of lawlessness or the Antichrist to be revealed.

This is exactly what we see in the news media today, they are being directed by the powers of darkness. They have been fanning the flames of discontent leading to mass riots, looting, and even murder. Their agenda is not about race and equality, it’s about removing the restraints. Don’t let a few bad actors make this into something that it’s not. For most believers, it’s appalling, that they don’t take responsibility for the lawlessness that’s ravaging the streets of America. It’s unconscionable that they are talking about defunding the police departments tasked to keep us safe. The powers of darkness are using the news media to shape humanity into believing that everyone is good and upright citizens free to walk in all manner of wickedness completely ignoring the law of God. They are teaching people that they have a right to take pleasure in their unrighteousness, even if it offends others or breaks the law. They are teaching them to call bad, good, and to call good, bad. Why is this so important to the coming Antichrist or the man of lawlessness? Why is it so important to shun God’s Law and the rule of law? I believe there are two reasons why complete lawlessness must prevail in the last days prior to him being revealed. The first reason is more obvious, while the second reason is a mystery only revealed to God’s Holy children, His faithful remnant.

The obvious reason why lawlessness must prevail in the last days is to cause humanity to spit in the eye of God. It pridefully boasts that Satan was able to turn most of humanity against the one true God, to reject His Laws and all the principles of how to live a godly life. The second reason is a bit more complex, for it needs a greater understanding of God’s Word and a good dose of heavenly wisdom. If the world is in the condition described in the first portion of this article, which I took great pains to describe, then the coming Antichrist will find it far easier to control fallen humanity. He will find it far easier to convince the fallen world of his many miracles, causing them to worship him and follow his mandates. Perhaps the greatest miracle and a parody of Jesus Christ is that he will have a death wound that is miraculously healed (See Revelation 13:3). He does this to convince the world that he is the true savior of humanity, which will culminate in him eventually sitting in the Temple of God claiming himself to be God (See II Thessalonians 2:3). Once his divinity has been fully established then he requires worship of his image. Finally, he requires everyone to be marked allowing them to buy and sell. Keep in mind, dear children, that he requires worship before they are actually marked, which should dispel any theory of a secret mark (See Revelation 13:15-18).

In essence, the powers of darkness will create great chaos in the world by using the news media, so that the man of lawlessness can come along and bring forth order out of chaos; to enslave fallen humanity. So, what must we do to prepare for all this lawlessness coming upon the world to pave the way for the Antichrist? The Bible says, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh” (Jude 1:20, ESV). Although we must make every effort to save others, we in no way must partake of their sins; their conduct should be regarded as loathsome and contagious, worse than any virus. We should take every precaution to preserve our purity in the Lord even in the midst of a fallen and hostile world. We must continue to walk in all of God’s Holy Laws even while the world is growing increasingly lawless. Stand firm, dear children, and listen to the Psalmist who said, “Thy word I have hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:1). Do all these things, dear children, to keep you from falling and being deceived by the coming Antichrist.

Blissful Living in a Dark World (Video)

Many Christians desire a blissful life, while the powers of darkness close in from every side. Many of them long for peace of times past, while dissension and hatred rule the day. Many long for joy, where now it’s just a fleeting memory from days gone by. Most have longed for a blissful life in a dark world. As children of light in a dark world, most have longed for the fruit of that light that would carry them beyond the memories of joy and peace to the blissful life of living in His presence.

Blissful Living in a Dark World

Many Christians desire a blissful life, while the powers of darkness close in from every side. Many of them long for peace of times past, while dissension and hatred rule the day. Many long for joy, where now it’s just a fleeting memory from days gone by. Most have longed for a blissful life in a dark world. As children of light in a dark world, most have longed for the fruit of that light that would carry them beyond the memories of joy and peace to the blissful life of living in His presence. Most have longed for that life where time is no more and where we are set free from its aging process to a life of being forever young; to be set free from the confines and restrictions of time itself. That’s blissful living in eternity. As God’s beloved children we can have a foretaste of that now in this life encapsulated in the rigors of time, death, and dying. We as God’s beloved children can become transformed in Christ to experience this blissful life that’s well beyond most people’s imagination, that ventures to the mountain top of love and tranquility. If you’re interested in making this a reality in your life, keep reading.

Do you want that incredible joy and the peace that defies understanding while the indwelling Spirit fills every fiber of your body? There are those very powerful, yet gentle, electrical impulses that make you feel totally alive. Some have described it as being cuddled up under warm blankets on a cold night. You are in the presence of the Lord. As you are lifted up in love there is no fear, no pride, but only a divine humility where we don’t run ahead flooding the throne room with questions. No, we simply listen, allowing God to direct our thoughts and supply the answers on questions not asked. We are thrilled to rest in the glory of His light. As children of light, we can have a foretaste of that blissful life to come by discerning what pleases the Lord. The Bible says, “Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:8b -10). So, the key to this blissful life is discerning what pleases the Lord. We know this because pleasing the Lord has led us into absolute bliss. So, let’s not pass over this very powerful verse, without discovering the timeless truths on how to please the Lord. A good starting place is understanding that it’s impossible to please the Lord without faith (See Hebrews 11:6).

Faith is much more than believing all the facts and truths in our sacred doctrines. Although it’s extremely important, it’s even more than believing all the truth in Holy Scripture. Faith is believing, but it’s also trusting in Christ completely to do everything that He has promised. It’s also trusting in Christ to keep us from falling into the snare of the devil or tripped up by the powers of darkness. It is trusting in God alone to solve all of our problems, without the help of self-righteous man. For most that’s easier said than done.  Most have learned in early Christian education or discipleship to proclaim loudly that they are trusting in God. It does not count as trusting in God if we agree to try His way, but when the promises don’t quickly materialize, we then take matters into our own hands. For example, we can proclaim that we believe the Bible that says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). The Bible does not mince words when it says, “given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness through the KNOWLEDGE of Him.” So, the Bible has given us all the knowledge necessary to live life and for living a godly life. We can easily say we believe this truth but it’s much more difficult to trust God to deliver this information without the help of self-righteous man.

Once that faith and trust have been established in the believer’s life, then we are ready to proceed allowing the indwelling Spirit to have complete control of our life by heeding His promptings to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. As Christ grows us from one degree of glory to another, then we are experiencing transformation in Christ. We will discover quickly that Christ is our true Counselor. Along the way, we will be confronted with many choices in an evil world. As spiritual fruit is produced in the believer’s life, then we will be led to make the proper choices by choosing what is, “good, right, and true.” Every time we make the proper choice, it will please the Lord. So, how do we know what is good, right and true? We know it through the study of Holy Scripture and by listening to God through the Holy Spirit. Make the wrong choice and you will displease God, possibly grieve the Holy Spirit, and reap the consequences of your unholy action. Fear not, for the indwelling Spirit dwells in every believer gently leading and guiding them along life’s narrow path. We simply must learn how to listen to His voice through prayer and meditation. We must learn to be sensitive to His nudges and promptings that are confirmed by Holy Scripture or the direction given to us by other mature believers, who can properly quote Scripture in its proper context.

The more you walk in the light the easier it becomes to discern what pleases the Lord. On the other hand, the more you walk in darkness the more difficult it is to please Him. Let’s be very clear, on what walking in darkness is. To knowingly disobey any of God’s commandments is walking in darkness. To have anxious thoughts, to dwell on past wrongs, to have thoughts of revenge or thoughts about getting even, is walking in darkness. To hate others by constantly slamming them or finding fault is still walking in darkness. This should give us pause about the news media and social media. To worry about things that you cannot change is walking in darkness. Yet, we have heard about how anxiety has gripped a whole nation. To fear the unknown or what’s currently falling upon the world is walking in darkness still. To trust in others to solve your emotional and psychological problems is clearly walking in darkness and the grip of Satan. I have already written about how the psychiatric industry will be overwhelmed, which the world powers will use to their advantage. To deny any of the great and precious promises in the Bible for believers is still walking in darkness. We will never discern what pleases the Lord if we are walking in darkness.

We must learn how to walk in the light of His glory if we want to experience the blissful life. The Bible says, “for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God” (John 12:43). Many have never really walked in the light of His glory because they are more interested in receiving the praise of men. Many believers in these dark days, desire praise from self-righteous man. Deep down they want others to brag on them and congratulate them for their work, even their work for the Lord. These people are not walking as children of light. To walk as children of light, then we must aim for the only thing that will follow us to heaven. The Bible says, “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way” (I Corinthians 12:31). Loving God and others are at the apex of the Christian experience and lies at the heart of a blissful life in Him. It is a more excellent way! There is nothing more important than loving God and others. To do so, truly pleases the Lord, moving Him to offer His praise to us by sharing the light of His glory. As we walk in the light of His glory, the world will not give us any recognition or appreciation. As we walk in the light of His glory our faces will shine forth as the noon-day sun. As we walk in the light of His glory, all of God’s love will flow through us to others. As we walk in the light of His glory, we will experience the blissful life. As Christians, this is what we long for every day of our lives, blissful living in a dark world.

Know the Watchman on the Wall (Video)

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.
