Well, it’s that time of year again where the Chinese get to celebrate a new year, and I get dragged off to visit the in-laws. I hate traveling, but I like my in-laws. So, it’s always a time of mixed emotion.
It also means that I get my weekly articles out rather late.
The other thing that’s happening, is genocide in South Africa. It has been going on for a while, but the tempo is starting to increase. We should all be horrified by this and praying for our brothers and sisters who are about to suffer greatly.
Please remember that our time of suffering is coming.
I can’t believe that I had to write that as the title. But, what I heard over the past few days, leads me to make that statement.
I would love to believe that he has just gone insane, or that his hatred of the Jews and Israel has consumed his mental faculties. But, I can’t make that assumption. The evidence from his own mouth condemns him, and I do not have any other way to think about this.
No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.
I certainly welcome your thoughts on this, once I have laid out what I have seen and heard.
I love teachers, and I am one. My wife is one. Teachers are great, and we need them. But, you should never trust what they teach you.
And yes, that includes myself.
There are too many corrupt, lying liars who are posing as good-hearted and well-meaning pastors, seminarians, theologians, professors, instructors, writers and YouTubers. And, some of these ‘lying liars’ don’t know that they are a source of lies. They have deceived themselves, and are passing that deception on to you. And, that deception is killing us.
So, the best thing that I can do is encourage you to never trust me, or anyone who is in my position.
It is with a heavy heart, that I must turn to doing yet another special report. I do not like doing these. In fact, it would be better to say that I hate doing these, because I would only do them when there is sin and deception within the Body of Christ. And, there is nothing that gives me more grief.
Furthermore, we are required by God to reprove and rebuke those who sin while claiming leadership within the Body of Christ. (1Timothy 5:17-20)
So, it is with great sorrow, that I must call out Rick Wiles of Trunews.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.
However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.
I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.
Daniel 8 is a tough chapter to work through, and I believe that it was done that way on purpose. But, since it is an important chapter in an important book, it is worth our time to try and understand it.
And, I believe that we have some ability to piece together what can and cannot be the correct interpretation of Daniel 8.
So, let’s try to figure out if the Antichrist MUST come from the region in and around the Middle East – including Greece and parts of central Asia.
