Dragons, Deception and Depression

I’ve got three separate things on my mind, and it all needs to fit in one article. Hopefully, I won’t make this too long.

There are two seven-headed beasts in Revelation, and we always focus on the one that we refer to as ‘The Beast’. But, what about that dragon?

I’m getting more comments and email about deception, and it seems to center around the growth of cult activity. And, it’s as bizarre as it is horrifying.

Ray Comfort came out with a new video, ‘Exit’. A reader sent me a link, and it seems like this is a good time to talk about this.

Feeling a Bit Ezra

I just finished reading the Book of Ezra, and I completely identify with his struggles. His desire was to follow God and rebuild Jerusalem. But, the leadership of his people weren’t so interested.

He had to kick butts, pull hair and publicly shame those who would not follow God’s commandments. And, at the end of the day, he was utterly depressed by the need to struggle.

So, if you are feeling tired of the struggle, read Ezra.

I’m so amazed that we never seem to learn.

Proof of Life

As the drums of war beat more loudly, some of us are closer to Eternity than others. The Last Days were always going to be like that, so none of this should be a surprise. The only thing that really worries me is where you will be, when your time to step into the next life comes.

I don’t really like talking about this, but only someone who did not care about you, would refrain from speaking on this subject. And yes, I really do care.

So, let me ask you one of the most important questions anyone will ever ask in these Last Days:

Do you have proof of life?

Suffer the Little Children

For five days, from Monday through Friday, our church – Calvary International Baptist Church – had their first (in a long time) ‘Vacation Bible School’. It was an exhausting ordeal, a tremendous honor and a great blessing.

I was an opportunity to demonstrate the love of God to some of the most adorable little munchkins that you ever saw.

Please, if your church does not have a program of outreach to the children in the neighborhoods around your church, now is the time. I was saved at the age of six, and it was a real commitment on my part.

And yes, God really does love the little children.

( and, thank you to LTC and Mrs. Lam for this great privilege! )

Why Apocalypse Now

How we got to where we are is utterly fascinating. What an intricate series of events and historical movements that led us to this horrific moment in time.

For thousands of years, we’ve been puzzling over how the prophecies of the Last Days would be fulfilled. Well, we no longer need to puzzle over it. We now have most of the pieces and a better understanding of the picture.

The only question is whether we can fit those pieces together properly. It’s a big challenge, and I’ve been trying to do this for years. The good thing is that I’m better at this than before.

In the Footsteps of Jeremiah

Poor Jeremiah was a righteous man who did his very best to warn the people of God, to repent and escape the wrath that God was going to pour out upon Judah. Some listened and saved themselves, but most did not. And, Jeremiah had to watch the rebels among God’s people destroy themselves and everyone around them.

For those who are giving warning to the Body of Christ, to repent and escape the wrath of God, you are walking in the footsteps of Jeremiah. Some of our brothers and sisters will repent and escape. Most will not.
