I try to always ask God for direction before I write, because I truly want every word that I write to be what He wants you to read. I really do. It scares me that I would lead you astray in ANYTHING. Unfortunately, because I am fallible, you cannot trust my words completely. I really am no better than you are.
I say all that, because I wanted to write something else today. There are such dire threats facing us, that talking about spiritual lies seems like a waste of time. The problem is that you won’t heed my warnings, if you believe spiritual lies. So, here we go again.
Living in Taipei, you’d think that I would talk about China more than I do. And, it’s true that I certainly have more experience with the Chinese than most. I’ve taught Chinese students, and my wife is Chinese by culture and Taiwanese by birth.
I also like the Chinese. They’re full of interesting contradictions and foibles. They’re not as polished or as sophisticated as those of us from the West, and they’re far more honest and sincere than we are.
And, Chinese Christians?
We can’t hold a candle to them. They are superior to us in every way. And we should be ashamed of that.
I’ve been trying to avoid this topic for a long time. I don’t like controversy, and this site is really about only one thing – helping you survive what is coming. Unfortunately, I’ve painted myself into a corner, so we need to talk about this subject.
The problem is that if you believe that the rapture will happen before anything bad comes… well, you won’t prepare. And, history is full of what happens to people who believe that nothing bad can happen to them. Please remember that it doesn’t matter what YOU think about what God is saying. It truly only matters what GOD thinks about what He is saying.
Growing up, I didn’t really spend that much time talking about End Times prophecy with other believers. I just assumed that people ‘got it’. Then, when I was living in Israel, there were so few Christians around, that the same situation applied. However, one day, I stumbled over someone who was talking about the pre-tribulation rapture theory.
When I quizzed him on the implications, I finally got the picture. Pre-trib people believe that Israel is saved DURING the Tribulation.
This is what happens when you don’t read your Bible, carefully. And, it also forces us to focus on Israel FIRST, if we are to discuss a prophecy timeline.
If you follow the One Year Bible, you just finished reading Luke 21, today. That chapter contains a prophecy about the Last Days that indicates when the they begin, and – more importantly for us – when they end.
What’s also interesting is that Jesus, at the same time, told us the key to surviving this terrible period of time. And, the goal of this website is centered on that survival, as well as your ability to stand before the Lord in the Day of Judgment and hear, “well done thou good and faithful servant.”
We live in dire and unsettled times, and Satan’s plans are moving forward towards a final effort, a final roll of the dice, before the Lord returns in glory. I do not know why Satan feels that he has a chance to win – which is why none of us can really understand why these events must play out. But, God is in control, so we only need to play our part in this coming battle.
What’s coming next is going to be interesting. The US and Europe started this game and planned out their moves years ago. They knew exactly what would happen and when it would happen. I’m sure that some strategies being used in this current game had to be modified as we got closer to game time in Kiev, but there are only so many pieces on the board. And, everyone knows how the board is laid out.
By the way, before I forget, Dave Hodges has also been describing our current confrontation in terms of a chess match – but from a different perspective. You can see his three part series, here:
The US and Russia are at war. The fact that there are no aircraft carriers or helicopter gunships involved should not fool you. What is happening in Kiev is war, and Vladimir Putin – the president of Russia – knows it.
Putin’s problem right now is that his hands have been tied by the Winter Olympics in Sochi. But, the last day of the Olympics is in two days, on the 23rd. When you wake up on the morning of the 24th, will you see Russian troops in the Ukraine?
Maybe yes. Maybe no. But, that is a very good question. A very good question, indeed.
Welcome to the Weekend ShockCast. As I have said a couple times before, I am just not able to juggle all of my responsibilities in a way that allows me to record daily ShockCasts. So, I’ve chosen to do it on the weekend, when I have more time, and… well, I kinda think that this might turn out to be better for you, as well. It certainly is easier to download one audio file a week, instead of five small ones.
It took me a while to confirm to my own satisfaction that ‘they’ really were spending trillions of dollars to weave a toxic lattice of chemtrails across America’s skies. In fact, I was finally convinced only a few weeks ago when someone came forward with firsthand evidence that made it become real to me.
The Disciples proved the reality of Christianity by demonstrating their willingness to sacrifice their lives for the name of Jesus. And no one sacrifices their life for something that THEY KNOW is a lie. When people make big sacrifices for the truth, you pay attention.
