Weinergate and the Attempted Coup of the Antichrist

This presidential election has turned out to be the ultimate in spiritual warfare as Wikileaks reveals a satanic conspiracy in the top echelons of our government. More and more emails are being released giving us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the immorality and demonic nature of those in the Clinton campaign. Hillary's right-hand-girl and co-chairman, Huma Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner whose computer has given access to the 33,000 emails Hillary and her associates thought they destroyed, reveal a couple who have brought in the most vile contacts with pedophilia and occultism.

If you thought that was just a blind oversight on Hillary's part, how is it that her campaign manager John Podesta, whose emails have now surfaced, is a practicing satanist and also one using small children as sex objects and subjects for ritualistic satanic practices? This is showing us just what a tight grip the devil has on our country.

Listen to my podcast in which I lay out the documentation that proves this election is literally a vote between American freedom and global slavery.

Remember: History has shown that Hitler too used the occult arts to get his power to rule -- that was merely a dress rehearsal. If we can block his candidate from ascending the throne, we can once again hold off the powers of darkness -- until we be taken out of the way.

Dirty Politics

Today I'm trying to stop myself from taking the cares of this world upon myself. This drawn-out election is getting uglier by the minute; it just demonstrates our need for the King of kings. Our modern-day kings are not going to get us out of the mess humanity has made for planet Earth. They simply testify of our need for Jesus to return and rule as a Monarchy.

Pray that God in his grace gives us a David and not a Saul. But recall that neither of those kings were perfect. And if we hold back our vote, awaiting the perfect one -- we might as well not register to vote at all. 

I hate to admit it -- but every election is a vote for the lesser of two evils. Man needs his Redeemer. I remember one president who wowed everyone by referring to himself as a humble born-again peanut farmer and we later discovered his hatred of Israel. 

Then our great movie star president listened to his wife's advice on timing his acts based on her psychic - oh he was such a model of conservative Christian family values.

We were all shocked in the 70s when the Watergate tapes came out and we heard our Republican president throwing all those 'F' bombs out -- we were so naive thinking if a person makes it to the White House s/he must be holier than the rest of us.

Whether November brings us to a time of making America great or a time of war and captivity, we must not take it to heart. We know that our God holds the whole world in His hands. Our safest place is staying in His will. When we walk with Jesus, and commit ourselves to be His instruments to do according to His good pleasure, He will enable us to be His representatives to this lost and dying planet.

No matter who lives on Pennsylvania Avenue, our citizenship is in heaven from which we await our Savior. Maranatha!!

"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." 1 Tim 2:1-4

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. ... But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them." - Heb 11:13-14,16

God's Word is Living

Ever have a verse just pop out at you while spending time in God's Word? How 'bout half a verse?

While reading through First Peter the other day, I got hit with half a verse -- "conduct yourselves throughout THE TIME OF YOUR STAY here in fear;" (1 Pet 1:17b)

So it seems we're just visiting -- on a bad vacation -- anxious to go back home. Peter already told us earlier in the chapter where our home really is -- "to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, RESERVED IN HEAVEN for you." (vs. 4)

In the next chapter, Peter calls us 'sojourners and pilgrims' -- as throughout both his epistles, he underscores our heavenly citizenship. It is awesome to just meditate on these things. It puts everything in perspective.

Only you, my born-again, Spirit-filled, brothers and sisters can relate to this -- as we regularly see the Word of God come alive in us -- as "a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."

"For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Heb 4:12)

Professing Christians whose beliefs are merely based on the academics of creeds and systematic theology miss out on the spiritual dimension that God has breathed upon us. Some of them even look down on us, dissing us as mystics and Gnostics, because they can't understand what they do not possess.

That's the opposite extreme of those who chase after signs and wonders and get their reward from lying spirits and doctrines of demons.

We must not lose sight of who we are in Christ Jesus -- stay connected to the Vine. He is not an academic topic -- He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Don't allow denominationalists to quench the Spirit when they criticize what they don't understand -- even if they appear scholarly.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.... But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.” (John 4:13-14, 23-26)

"But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.: (Jude 1:17-21)

The unprecedented divisions among us are a sign that the time is approaching when the final stand of good against evil is about to be played out. Choose your side.

Religion has always been tolerated as long as it kept its dogmas within the walls of the church on Sundays. It complied for centuries until the last revival (late 60s-70s) and outpouring of God's Spirit gave millions a love for the Word of God that overflowed into the streets. Now the world hates those Christians who dare to quote Scripture in mixed company -- because their deeds are evil and darkness hates the light.

As Jesus forewarned us, they will hate us, but it is not really us they hate, it is Him they hate. Fence-sitters know this and keep their mouths shut so as not to offend anyone. They are the lukewarm of whom Jesus said He would spew out of His mouth.

Just like the believers in the First Century, we are seeing this play out- Matthew 10:32-39

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.'"

The True Legacy of Jan Crouch

Jan Crouch March 14, 1938 - May 31, 2016

Jan Crouch, 78, co-founder of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, the largest 'Christian' network on the planet went to her reward this morning after suffering a stroke. TBN has been using the false teaching of the Word/Faith - Give-to-Get - Seed Faith - scheme to con Christians out of their money since 1974.

Jan died with 14 lawsuits pending against her whistle-blower granddaughter, Brittany Crouch Koper, costing TBN donors multiple millions of dollars.

Jan had not spoken to her granddaughter since she was fired as the Chief Financial Officer of TBN in 2011 for insisting that the Crouches follow the laws governing the use of donor money and not siphon it off to boost Matt Crouch's secular movie directing ambitions, among other reported wastes for the Crouches to live extravagantly. 

Brittany had this to say to Jan recently before her stroke.  After Jan's stroke, she and her family, including her father Paul Crouch Jr., were not allowed to know Jan's whereabouts, by the authority of Matt Crouch and TBN attorney cousin John Casoria.

Jan Crouch kissing the signed legal form just signed by ailing Paul Sr, making Matt Crouch (Jan's son via adultery) the heir of the empire when the TBN president was close to death and not at all thinking properly -- was all apparently done to keep Paul Jr. out of TBN. Manipulation inspired from the pit.

 Both Brittany and her dad, Paul Crouch Jr., found out that Jan died by news reports. No one called them and Paul's calls to the TBN lawyers, Colby May and John Casoria (his cousin) were not returned when trying to find his mother's whereabouts.

Paul Crouch Sr's unmarked grave at Pacific View Memorial Park and Mortuary in Corona del Mar, California. But I'll bet Matt will place Jan somewhere near the graves of Aimee Semple McPherson and Kathryn Kuhlman.

Paul Crouch Jr's son Brandon posted this today remembering the grandma he loved - who would not bother seeing him over Jan's dispute with his sister. His only slight was the family he was born into. What does this say about the newly departed?

 Jan's granddaughter had to witness the wickedness of her grandmother up close and personal. Keep Paul Jr's family in your prayers -- there's more hurt here than just the demise of a family member. Here is Brittany's post.

 Paul & Jan Crouch's legacy must not go down in history all white-washed and controlled by million$ lawyers. The truth is ugly but must be told -- if the LORD tarries, it must be known from here on that TBN was/is the biggest carrier of apostasy in all of church history.

Walking on Water

As we watch the birth pangs count down to the soon return of our First Love, the condition of the world around us can bring us down. I hope you take the time to tune it all out - at least one day a week, choose a day, any day - and rest in Jesus. Our souls can get so heavy and only the LORD can give us the peace that the world does not know.

Jesus told us that He overcame the world. And we are to follow His example. How can we overcome the world and the 'ruler of this world' who tries to bog us down with the 'cares of this world' to make us unproductive and useless for God?

We overcome "by the blood of the Lamb" and by the word of our testimony. We must never be ashamed of whose we are in Christ and keep Him the focus. Remember, Peter could walk on water as long as he kept his eyes fixed upon Him - but as soon as he looked at the storm, he began to sink. 

Do you find yourself emulating Peter and crying out from time to time: 'LORD, save me'!? 

Jesus wasn't kidding when He told us we would have tribulation in this world -- we sure do. And people are grabbing onto any hope they can see -- which is why many are latching onto their favorite political candidate as if winning the election would be the answer to their tumultuous lives.

After we refill our souls with Jesus, don't forget to spread Him around to those who have no hope in this world. This is not the time for 'every man for himself.' Spread the excitement. The world needs what we have.

Keep your eyes on the Prize!

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe. I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here." - John 14:27-31

“In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God. I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father. ...Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” - John 16:26-28, 32-33

“But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.” - Luke 22:32

Live Differently Today

So many preachers ask the question, "If you knew the world was going to end tomorrow, what would you do differently today?" To us end-timers we need to ask the question, "If you knew the world was going to go on the way it is for another 100 years, what would you do differently today?"

Would you be more diligent to plan for your family's future? Would you be more optimistic about your children's education and career plans? Would you enjoy watching your grandchildren grow as they discover the beauty of God's creation, knowing they could look forward to love and marriage and their own offspring?

If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions -- if you would live life differently -- then you might be off-center in your apocalyptic fervor. The evil of the times may be getting to you.

The Christian way of life needs to keep all things in perspective -- in balance, so to speak. We must always seek the truth and be realists, not allowing the cares of this world to choke out our faith in God. Keeping our eyes on Jesus, while making the most of the time He has given us to enjoy His blessings and be a blessing to others.

It is so easy to lose heart and get down in the dumps as we look at the world falling apart around us -- politically, religiously, and economically. Thinking too deeply sometimes can be depressing -- especially regarding things that are out of our control to do anything about. Not taking the time to appreciate the good will turn many of us into pessimists -- people who are no fun to be around. 

Things will most likely be very different for the next hundred years -- and we can't do much to alter that. But we can live expectantly, that Jesus has all things in His hands and we can rest in that and look for ways to make the time left joyful and meaningful - making every moment count.

We love Him because He first loved us. Spread that love around.

"Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD,
And find the knowledge of God....
When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you,
To deliver you from the way of evil"
-- Prov. 2:3-5, 10-12a

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him." - 1 John 4:11-16

Revival: It's Personal

So many wayward leaders in the church are trying to cash in on the next Great Awakening. It's almost like some sort of competition to see what preacher will be in the spotlight of the next big revival.

But, what really matters to each and every one of us is our own joy in the LORD and the strength of His might. Our love and enthusiasm tends to grow cold -- especially when we do not renew our spirits by dwelling in His Word. The cares of the world are certainly choking Jesus out of many people's busy lives.

It used to be that you could get to church on Sunday for a time of refreshing away from the pressure of daily life; sing the praises of our God; enjoy the sweet fellowship of the saints; listen to an uplifting message and the Word rightly divided. You would leave church pumped up on Jesus, ready to take on the world.

During this time of the Great Apostasy though, church is more often a time for some motivational speech by a narcissistic guy who thinks too highly of himself, or a monotone bland packaged sermon from a lectionary delivered by a guy on salary. 

We cannot expect the preacher or teacher to do for us what only God can do -- that work in our hearts as we are filled with the Holy Spirit and baptized in His love. The renewal we seek will not be found at the next 'wave' in the church. We cannot look to some man or program to breathe life into our groggy spirits anymore than we can blame others for our own indifference. 

It's time to get back to that personal relationship each of us has with Jesus. There's no middle-man. There's no intercessor between us and Him. We are instructed to 'abide' in Christ. Cast our cares upon Him. Trust in Him. Commit our way unto the LORD. 

No one can do that for us.

"Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass."
- Psalms 37:3-5

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near."
-- Phil 4:4-5

Member/s of a Herbert W. Armstrong cult have deceptively started a Facebook page called Rapture Ready International Ministries. People thinking they are joining in uplifting discussions about the soon return of Jesus instead are led into false teaching. On this FB ‘about’ page they list their website as - which is the site of Rapture Ready, a website that keeps believers up-to-date on news items and articles about the end times.

No doubt, the majority of the subscribers to this FB page are friends of Rapture Ready and listeners of Rapture Ready Radio.

The problem came to my attention on February 17, 2016 when a meme of the inside of a cathedral showed up in my timeline with the words, “There is no such thing as the trinity! There is only 1 God.”  It linked to a page called “Real Bible” that was discovered to be associated with the United Pentecostal Church UPC, considered heretical for their “Oneness” doctrine – the belief that God the Father became the Son and then became the Holy Spirit, as opposed to the doctrine of the Trinity that defines God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – distinct, yet One God.

The discussion that followed between me and the FB page’s moderator, Walter Hernandez, consisted of his attempt to denounce the Trinity and defend his viewpoint. To do so, he posted three links to the same source, the United Church of God, producers of the TV program Beyond Today. The UCG on their website calls the Rapture a false teaching, demands legal observance of the Sabbath, and denounces the doctrine of the Trinity.

So I looked up Rapture Ready’s position on the Trinity and posted it in the thread:

"Who is Elohim? Elohim is the plural word for God in the Hebrew language. It can refer to three or more. It is used of the Father, Son and HOLY SPIRIT throughout the Old Testament. Even though it is translated "God" it should be "Gods." All translators use "God" instead of "Gods" to emphasize the unity of the Trinity. This unity of the Trinity is stated clearly in the Old Testament by using singular verbs with the plural noun, Elohim."

It is just like cults to be sneaky and not operate on the up-and-up. They pretended to be one of us – impersonating – showing RR's link as their own – just to deceive people and try to draw away those who trust Rapture Ready -- Bait-and-switch tactic of wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I had already un-friended Mr. Hernandez for coming to my own Facebook page, arguing with my friends about the Trinity and showing Ambassador College as his place of training. Ambassador College is an institution of the late Herbert W. Armstrong, a heretic and dangerous religious leader who taught that we can become gods.

Rapture Ready’s owners, Todd Strandberg and Terry James were contacted and neither of them know Walter Hernandez -- Strandberg confirming that the Rapture Ready International Facebook page has no connection to

If you are one who has been fooled into thinking this FB page is valid, you might want to leave a rebuke in the comments before making a hasty retreat.


After my confrontation of this bogus Rapture Ready Int'l Facebook page, the owner of the page issued this statement after taking the "Ready" out of the title of his page. However he continues to show as his website in the 'about' page.

"There is no relation with the Rapture Ready or any of their publications. I am single out as a heretic because I am standing for the only true and Living God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Check the website and do your own research. He is coming back for us his church of his body. How sad that Christians should be united but there are divisions because we do not fit the theology and their seminary teachings instead if the word of God. How sad the state of this at this moment, but I am not surprise since Jesus Christ was single out as a son of the devil. Thanks God por his matchless Word of truth."

Just Passing Through

Calvary Chapel Broomfield (Colo)
Founding member of rock bands Buffalo Springfield and Poco
Member of the Rock n'Roll Hall of Fame

"Please forgive me with this being so close on the heels of such a sensitive time, but with so many notable, public figures crossing that line into eternity – it always causes our hearts and minds to think about our own mortality, especially if they are of a young age – younger than we are. But the reality of death is a reality of life and each one of us will cross that fateful line one day. 

When a loved one passes our hearts are overwhelmed with grief, even if we really didn’t know the person, but we identified with their music or their movies or their books … and, it’s as if we did know them and when they die it causes us to stop and think about this reality of life. The writer of one of the books in the Bible, James, makes an observation (James 4:14):

“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away”.

I believe we can all agree on one thing - we’re just passing through this life, on our way to eternity and the hereafter. On the way, on this journey we call “life”, we may have thoughts such as “what does the future hold” or “what matter does it make”, and for some, it is “eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we will die” – but then what? Is this life all there is to life? Have those thoughts ever crossed your mind? It’s interesting, but we all have philosophies, religions – a faith we choose to give us comfort in these thoughts; that’s why when one a loved or someone who’s had an impact on our lives passes, we comfort ourselves saying “they’re in a better place”. An atheist will tell you – this is it, “eat, drink and be merry”; while an eastern philosophy will tell you “you can work it out” – as you seek to attain nirvana – obliviousness (Webster: a goal hoped for but apparently unattainable: a dream) which, ultimately is nothingness; and if that’s all there is at the end of the day, then indeed life is meaningless, if in fact its ultimate end is nothingness. 

I wanted to share my thoughts because I am a Christian and I believe there hope beyond this life and I believe the way to heaven is possible, but it does come about through what we call death. The Bible teaches that death is an “exodus” – moving from one place to another – but “life” goes on. It is a door we will all go through. The Bible also teaches when we go through that door it leads one of two ways … into the presence of God (the Creator, Redeemer and Savior) for all eternity (heaven) or to be separated from Him for all eternity (hell) – this is my faith and regardless of what you believe, this is what life boils down to – a choice, a belief, a faith. 

The Christian faith is different from every other major religion and belief system of the world in that those religious system put the weight of getting to heaven on you, your performance, your efforts your works. The dilemma is how does one know when their performance has met the standard and what is that standard? The God of the Bible worked out the way to heaven and fellowship with Him through the work of Jesus Christ – thereby, getting to heaven is not based upon your or my “performance” but upon the “performance” – the work of Jesus Christ. You’ve probably heard it said: “everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die”, but the per-requisite is, if heaven is a reality, we’re going to die and leave this world as we know it. According to my faith, Jesus died that I might live. At the end of the day, it’s as Jesus said:

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
"And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26)

As I said – faith is a belief system and each one, in making the decision about eternity (heaven and hell) will make a decision about Jesus who said: 

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) 

May those of you who read this receive it with the grace with which I have shared it; God desires fellowship with His creation (He is the Living God) and therefore He made the way to heaven possible in that:

"God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

This is my hope; this is my belief; this is my faith."

Sheep Crying Out

It seems like the scattering of the sheep is in high gear. Count yourself blessed if you have a church fellowship that keeps out the leaven, preaches the Word faithfully, and worships the LORD in Spirit and in Truth -- screening out songs that are unbiblical or that flaunt the flesh.

Churches today - for the most part (with the exception of the Bible-teaching faithful few) -- are either ritualistic (vestments and bells and smells), spiritually dead (droning dry speaker with disinterested pew warmers), charismaniac (flashing lights; a lot of words but no Word), or inclusive (gay pastor -- all are welcome). It's a sad, sad, sad day for the church.

How is it that the Bride is making herself ready??? 

The Mystery of Iniquity is securely embedded into what is known as churches. It's in control and there's no eviction notice that will change that. Has the time come when the words of Jesus are saying "Come out of her, My people." And when the sheep comply and leave, they have nowhere to go -- so they are scattered.

Scattered sheep are not happy, well-fed creatures. They have no under-shepherds, although they know the voice of the Good Shepherd. So they roam every hill bleating for their Master and mostly apart from one another. They have a hard time distinguishing between wild goats and lost sheep.

Jesus said that those who do not gather with Him, scatters. Yet, many sheep are frightened and don't know whom to trust. In their condition, they tend to shy away from others, knowing there are dangerous wolves out there disguising themselves as sheep. About the only way to find a fellow sheep to snuggle with to stay warm is to find another one that looks exactly like they do. If they are spotted, or black, or some other color or mixture thereof, the sheep are fearful.

It would seem the only remedy for these scattered sheep is for their Good Shepherd to come to the rescue. They are watching and waiting for Him to come and take them to His pasture for safety and refreshing. They are not comfortable in enemy territory.


"And I heard another voice from heaven saying, 'Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached' to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities." - Rev 18: 5-6

"Jesus Wept." - John 11:35

The Father's Business

In this new year of 2016, I'm sure you, like me, will be monitoring the news and global events in the expectation of our soon reunion with our loved ones who have gone on ahead and our rescue by our Messiah as He comes for us and takes us to that place He has prepared for us.

We must remember though that God's Word as it was given to us is all we need to understand His plan for us and for the past, present, and future. It is not our vision for ourselves that matters, but how we fit into His plan that He lays out for us in His Word.

We have the Great Commission and that is our Father's business that we need to be about doing. Isn't it interesting that during the time of the outpouring of God's wrath, He does not leave this planet without His witness. The Church is His witness in this dispensation, and in the time of the soon coming Tribulation His witnesses are 144,000 from the tribes of Israel, along with His special two witnesses who will be in Jerusalem, and the angel flying through mid-heaven with the everlasting Gospel. Apparently the Church's assignment will have ended or he wouldn't need the others.

So we must occupy until He comes and look out for silly fables you will hear people spouting -- such as Bible Codes, some proclamation from the counsel of prophets, or other soothsaying devices that go beyond what is written.

As deception increases we must be more and more on the alert, not only for ourselves, but for others. Pay no heed to those who find their revelation outside the Bible, who peep and mutter to impress others with their grand insights.

Now is the time to set aside all those things that hinder us from hearing the words of our God as He unveils His Word to us and quickens it to the eyes of our understanding as He determines by His will -- and not our own.
