Crisis coming has been the regular diet for most Christians. I have personally never witnessed a time when the Christian community has been so caught up in the prophetic looking for every little sign and the demon behind every rock. Make no mistake, I too have written considerably about the things to come, warning God’s children, giving commentary on world events, and standing against the abuses of our age. On the other hand, I have also tried to balance it with godly counsel on how to stand firm and not lose hope. I have discovered that the Bible does the same, proclaiming the whole blessed truth giving much encouragement to God’s children who have in times past and in the present have had to deal with the most difficult of circumstances. There is nothing new under the sun. Just taking a cursory look in the past two thousand years of church history one does not miss the many times of persecution against God’s beloved children who stood their ground unwilling to waver from His magnificent truth. These true saints from the past and the present stood their ground not on all the signs that they had gathered or their knowledge of things to come, but on the pure teachings of God’s Word concerning the hope held out to every believer. Dear friend, do you have this kind of hope that will hold you secure during the coming crisis? Continue reading Crisis Coming Hope Ascending
This is your final warning, repent now or experience the full extent of God’s wrath that will be poured out on our country. I wrote these words back in 2006 and every day since, these words become more prophetic for a country that has all but turned its back on the one true God.
Thus saith the Lord, “Legalizing abortion, homosexuality, and same sex marriage has barely scratched the surface of your immorality. You are a country that has kneeled at the altar of psychology seeking answers to your multitude of problems. You are staggering around like a drunk under the heavy weight of psychotropic drug addiction. I am no longer welcome in your schools as you seek to introduce the practices and traditions of other world religions among your children. Your leaders no longer respect me as the God over all of mankind, but now seek an audience with foreign gods through appeasement and empty treaties. Every vile and unclean bird has been allowed to enter your borders to set up human trafficking, magical arts, sorcery, and every manner of lewdness. What can be said about your greed and lust for power that has abandoned all restraints of morality and have inflicted pain upon my people will be written in your epitaph.” Continue reading Final Warning
Why is there such a need to know? Are we any different than Christ’s first disciples who peppered Him with questions about the end of all things? The office of the prophetic has always been and always will be popular among God’s people. Human nature dictates it. This is witnessed by many allowing their vain imagination to take root and blossom forth heretical predictions. Charts, maps, and prophetic scenarios have become man’s folly leading to even greater confusion among Christ’s followers. As we stand on the precipice of time and eternity who can be trusted to speak the truth? Jesus Christ who is the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega spoke clearly then and He speaks clearly now. From Matthew 24 to the writings to the Thessalonians to the writings by the Apostle Peter to the Revelation it is remarkable that in each age from the First Century until now God’s children could see unfolding events in their life match that of Holy Scripture. Indeed Jesus Christ is the Spirit of prophecy in any age. Those living in the first and second centuries of Christianity would need no convincing that they lived during the Great Tribulation from whence people were coming. (See Revelation 7:13-14) To them Caesar was the Beast who was killing Christians by the thousands for claiming Christ as their eternal King and unwilling to offer incense to him as a god. Those living under the tyranny of the early popes needed no convincing that the pope was the Beast. Nor did they need convincing that his persecution of those who followed Holy Scripture alone had cast them into the midst of the Great Tribulation. Those living at the time of Napoleon Bonaparte or Hitler needed no convincing that they were living in the last days under the heel of the Antichrist himself. Even today many don’t need convincing that the current administration in this country or others could produce a world ruler and the dreaded Antichrist causing all to take the mark of the beast.
When rumors begin to fly and panic strikes a nation how will you respond? Most of us are very familiar with the many prophecies concerning the end. Furthermore, every Christian knows in his heart that a nation will reap what … Continue reading Rumors, Panic, and 2012
Could this be a precursor of things to come? We live in a turbulent world where nothing happens by accident. As we fast approach the end of days, signs of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming are everywhere. It was not long ago that I wrote in my book, Final Warning, that the plagues and woes poured out by God on an evil world would go unrecognized by the pagan or explained away as human error or a freak accident of nature. But can we really close our eyes to the recent oil spill and the impending catastrophe? Do we honestly think that man in his own power can reverse the effects of the oil spill or stop the impending storms that may well drive the oil into the rivers and springs of water? Every day we are discovering that even more oil has poured into the Gulf – that measuring its extent may be well beyond our capacity. Continue reading Oil Spill Catastrophe
