We live in the Age of Deception – a fact that I’ve been repeating ad nauseam. And, I will keep repeating that, since this appears to be a truth that seems especially hard to accept. In fact, I repeat this as much for my own edification as yours.
The problem is that this deception has reached into our midst, and it’s poisoning our own ability to see the truth of what is happening around us. I am very distressed by this, since you are the target of this deception.
Satan wants YOU destroyed, and he has sown the seeds of your destruction in the hearts of many that you love and trust.

I felt badly that I couldn’t write more of an article on Friday. I tend to feel my responsibilities keenly, and unfulfilled obligations tend to scratch at me like a cat wanting to be fed.
Of course, time is an implacable opponent, and it tends to vanquish obligations more often than I would like.
Having said that, it’s not really time that is the problem, but competing obligations. Mrs. Little and I do evangelism every Friday night, as part of a program called ‘Friday Night Live‘. When Yangmingshan Chinese Culture University is in session, we do evangelism up there on Wednesday nights, and that class will start up again, soon. We also do work with our church, Calvary International Baptist Church.
Then, there are the doctors. I’m going to three of them on a far too regular basis. I am the recipient of a multi-generational struggle with auto-immune disease. I actually have three of them – none of which are especially life-threatening. They’re pretty much just annoying. Really annoying.
So no, don’t worry about Little ol’ me. I’m fine. (If a bit annoyed.)
Normally, all of that doesn’t keep me from writing an article on Friday. But, there’s one more thing that’s been happening, that has been grabbing LOTS of my attention:
Web Server Stuff
I’m a bit of a computer geek, so I like running my own web servers. And, I have two of them. And, I need to make some changes, since those servers and the newsletter service are costing me about $1500 dollars a year.
Up to now, I’ve been able to handle the cost, especially since I didn’t have the time to work out a way to reduce that cost. Ezekiel’s Fire was taking up all the excess time, so I had to leave those inflated costs where they were – until I could finish the book.
Well, Ezekiel’s Fire is done, so now I get to monkey around with web servers in an attempt to reduce costs.
All of that is why I couldn’t get an article out on Friday. I’m sure that you didn’t need all of that explanation, but some of you might benefit from knowing what I’m up to during the week.
So, while that urge to fulfill that obligation to write clawed at me, a couple of things popped up over the weekend that gave this urge extra force. That kitty kat was threatening to become a tiger.
A Blinded Shimura (FaceLikeTheSun)
I like Gonz. He’s a good guy with a big heart, and I listen to some of his stuff every once in a while. He has a YouTube channel called FaceLikeTheSun, and he tries to put out material to help the Body of Christ understand the evil that is happening in popular culture.
I’ve had disagreements with him, but I’ve never felt a strong need to challenge what he says too forcefully.
That changed last night.
He posted a YouTube video last night (my time) that was titled Zion:

My head exploded.
The great thing about Gonz is that he has NOT bought into the PreTrib Lie. He understands that part, and I applaud him for not falling for such a well-laid trap.
But, then he went and fell headlong into a different trap that is just as bad – if not worse:
I’m sure that he’ll claim that he doesn’t believe that, but I wasn’t born yesterday. Paul makes it very clear that we gentiles are NOT the ‘natural branches’. We’ve been grafted in, until the time when the natural branches will take up their rightful place in the Kingdom of God.
Yes, we are spiritual descendants of Abraham, but we are NOT the children of Jacob. Whenever God speaks of the ‘Children of Jacob’, God is speaking of the physical descendants. When Jacob made that final commitment, before returning to The Land, God changed his name to Israel.
Yes, God was with Jacob until he made his way back to the Promised Land, but you’ll notice that Jacob left The Land, telling God that he would commit to Yehovah, should Yehovah bring him back.
(And yes, the proper pronunciation is ‘Yeh-Ho-Vah’, not ‘Yah-Whey’.)
Well, the commitment was made, and Jacob’s name was changed to Israel as a part of that commitment – in much the same way that Abraham and Sarah’s names were changed as a part of THEIR covenant with God.
But, notice how God describes the return of Israel in the Last Days. He calls them, ‘Children of Jacob’. And, God said that He would cleanse Jacob AFTER He brought them back into the Land.
Now, Gonz Shimura claims that the creation of the State of Israel was at the hands of the Rothschilds.
Sorry, not true.
But, as all good lies, there is an element of truth to it. Yes, the Rothschilds DID provide money to one faction of the Zionists. But, only one. And that faction has been soundly defeated to the point where they barely have a voice in government anymore.
But, this lie continues to infect and blind all those who hold to ‘Replacement Theology’.
Furthermore, Gonz has been listening to those who claim that Israel ‘gets away with murder’. I know where that lie is coming from, and I’m used to hearing it. But, coming from someone like Gonz Shimura… someone who should know better …I’m shocked.
If you claim that ‘Israel is getting away with murder’, you have sided with Satan, in this issue.
No, I’m not claiming that Gonz is a Satanist. But, he is repeating a lie from Satan. And, in this lie, he is supporting the followers of Satan.
Now, it’s true that Israel is not a Christian nation. They have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Not yet.
So, I get that. After all, I lived there.
But, that does not mean that it’s okay to slander Israel by saying that ‘they get away with murder’. Such slander is an affront to God, and I am a witness to the fact that it is slander.
I have been an observer of Israel, from the inside, for 15 years. And, I could document their mistakes, since I’ve seen many. But, I have NEVER seen them ‘get away with murder’. And, Gonz clarified his statement in the comment section by following it with the word, ‘literally’.
So, as an experienced observer of the Bible and the events in Israel as they pertain to the Bible, I have the knowledge and experience to say the following:
You have sinned and must repent. You have committed heresy. And, you have given support to the enemies of God, in their effort to destroy the innocent.
Furthermore, in your blindness, you have attempted to cause others to be blind.
Gonz Shimura, you must repent, before the wrath of God enters your life.

Trumphoric, Blind Pastors
I like a lot of what I have been seeing President Trump do. I like the fact that his enemies are some of the most vile people on Earth. I like many of the people that he has appointed to his government. I like the fact that he supports Israel in her struggle to survive.
I have never seen a president do so much good and so much that is wise, in such a short time. It’s as if we had just escaped the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, and found our way back to the Yellow Brick Road – with the castle of Oz ahead.
What a glorious thing.
…but, there’s a problem.
Remember my point out the times that we live in?
That’s right. The Age of Deception.
And, we have pastors that have fallen headlong into an almost idol-worship of Trump. They’ve made all kinds of fantastic ‘prophecies’ about Trump. Listen to these pastors long enough, and you will wonder if we were actually living in the Last Days.
Toto, could it be that we aren’t in Kansas, anymore?
The problem is that we are STILL in the Last Days. The words of Jesus make that very clear. Jerusalem is no longer trodden down of the Gentiles, and disaster beckons from the wars and rumors of wars that roll down upon us.
We live in the Last Days, and Trump will not save us from what is coming. The best that we can hope for is a rather benign Wizard of Oz.
However, I fear that we have a much less benign president. And, Nathan Leal pointed that out over the weekend:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/m-F3FOkZsog
Nathan Leal often talks about things that I do not have any expertise in. We both talk about prophecy and eschatology, but I bring in the geopolitical aspects of what is coming – while Nathan talks about what the Satanists are doing to make part of that happen.
Both areas of discussion are important.
Mine is a whole lot easier than his. At least, in the area of geopoltics, we can see what is happening. It’s visible and out in the open.
Nathan is forced to look at events and people that hide their motives. Nathan is required to look at what is in the heart, and that’s tough.
This requires a lot of humility, because it is easy to be wrong, when looking at hidden actions and hidden motives. And, Nathan demonstrates that here, with this video.
It’s one of the reasons why I have so much respect for Nathan’s work.
As I have said before on this subject, I cannot say with complete certainty that Nathan is right. But, I also know that Trump is not what others claim that he is. There is a darkness about Trump. I’m not sure what it is, or where that darkness is directed. But, I am convinced that it is there.
Please remember that the Last Days were always going to be a time of great deception. So, it is vital that you assume that a political leader is being deceptive, until you have firm evidence to the contrary.
Never assume that someone is truthful, until they have proven themselves to be so. And no, Trump has NOT proven his truthfulness.
So, take this video to heart. I believe that what Nathan says here is important, and something that you need to consider.
Here’s the write-up for the video on Nathan’s site:
I really hope that Nathan is wrong. But, there is too much evidence that he might be right. And, we desperately need people like Nathan and Donna to show us where the deception could be, and is.
The Pre-Trib Blinders
Before sitting down to write this article, I wrote a response to someone that I like a lot. He’s left a lot of great comments in the past, and he’s demonstrated the fruit of the Spirit in our disagreement over the pretrib hoax.
Many – if not most – of my friends are pretribbers. In fact, if I had to choose between heresies, I would go with pretribism. It’s the ‘least bad’ heresy that I’ve come across. And, people who follow this eschatological heresy have a far better spirit about them, than the Amillennialists, the Post Millennialists and the Replacement Theologists.
My two favorite pastors are pretribbers.
I love ’em to death, but they drive me crazy. And no, it’s not okay to believe something that is against the Bible – the definition of heresy. ANY Biblical error will cause your view of the truth to be distorted.
For instance, the pretribbers have had their understanding of Jesus Christ corrupted. Their dispensationalism makes the claim that Jesus was not the be-all and end-all of the Bible. They claim that each ‘dispensation’ was equal to any other.
They have lost sight of the fact that ALL of creation looks to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sins, and the cleansing of those sins – through His shed blood.
Not one sacrifice was enough in the eyes of God, until Jesus came and made the one sacrifice that was enough. If you understand that, then you know that there is no such thing as a ‘dispensation’.
There is only ONE SACRIFICE!
To claim that any other sacrifice is sufficient is an awful thing to say. And, since they have internalized this ‘awfulness’, their view of the words of Jesus has been corrupted.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Pretribbers have NOT forsaken Christ. They are still brothers and sisters in Christ who still serve God in their efforts. They still understand the most important point:
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
But, they have allowed false teachers to rob them the truth. They have allowed Jesuit teachings to keep them from understanding that the words of Jesus are the KEY to prophecy. They have let false prophets rob them of the only way to unravel the challenge of interpreting end-time events.
The study of the Last Days – the literal meaning of the word ‘eschatology’ – ALWAYS starts with the words of Jesus. ALWAYS.
In fact, for those of you who have accepted Jesus Christ as God, why would any sane Christian do otherwise?
You would have to be insane to start your study of the last days in any other place than Mathew 24, Luke 21 or Mark 13. Jesus is the Creator of the Univervers! And, the Last Days is about HIS RETURN!
How is it possible that ANYONE would start anywhere else?
But, to my great grief, they do.
Because the words of Jesus contain this:
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
How can ANYONE argue against the words of Jesus?
The Rapture is the gathering of God’s people to Himself, by the angels. And, it happens AFTER THE TRIBULATION!!!
Paul also argues against a pre-tribulation rapture, but Jesus said it best.
How can ANYONE read the words of Jesus and claim that He misspoke?
Whether they know it or not, pretribbers are calling Jesus a liar!
There are two other passages from Paul that also prove that the Pretrib Rapture Theory is a lie. But, we don’t need the words of Paul, when we have the words of our Lord and Savior.
WE HAVE THE WORDS OF JESUS!
Our view of the Bible STARTS with Jesus. Our view of the Last Days, STARTS with Jesus. It was Jesus who gave us Revelation. It is through JESUS that we are saved!
Why do pretribbers look everywhere else in the Bible and SPECIFICALLY IGNORE THE WORDS OF JESUS?!
As I wrote that, I was reminded of the Pharisees who also sought to discredit the words of Jesus. They wanted a different Messiah. They wanted a DIFFERENT interpretation of prophecy. They wanted a different outcome, so they sought to discredit Jesus.
The Pretribbers are the Pharisees of our day. They seek a different prophecy. They seek a different outcome than the words of Jesus. While they do that, they are doing to Jesus what the Pharisees of 2000 years ago did.
Please. If I have to beg, I will. Do not follow in the steps of the Pharisees. God called them snakes and vipers before destroying them. And, just as they did, we also stand upon the cusp of prophecy.
If you reject the words of God, then you will suffer the same fate as all who did the same.
By the way, you have more on this idea, here:
Do Not Let The Blinders Blind
Jesus spoke about blind teachers leading others in their blindness:
Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
We are rapidly approaching the last part of the Last Days. A time is coming in which we will no longer have the time to try an open the eyes of the blind.
Now is the time to wake up. There is so little time left, and the deception that grips the hearts of our brothers and sisters grows in strength. If you let it overcome you, you and those that depend upon your leadership will suffer greatly.
And, it is my purpose, here with Omega Shock, to help you survive what is already at our door and avoid the terrible suffering of those too blind to see it come.
Please. Open your eyes. It is almost too late.
Yours in Christ,
