PASSED DUE FOR THE “WIDOW MAKER”

“Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow if death, I will fear no evil”

“I am amazed that he is still alive!” Such were the words of the surgeon who had just catheterized my heart. I don’t remember that. I was awake and responding but too drugged up to remember later. They are words that my wife will never forget.

What followed was a trip to my third hospital in as many days, surgery that would stop my heart for over an hour, routing my blood through a Heart-Lung machine instead, and being sent home to recover at the end of a ten-day vacation I would wish on no one, ever.

Health-Park Medical Center is “State of the Art.” It looks like a five-star hotel with a lobby including a four-story atrium grander than that of any Naples Hotel. The food is good, the Doctors, nurses and staff, highly trained, skilled, and kind beyond imagination. People travel here, from around the world, to combine “Elective Surgery” with a tropical vacation… That I had the best care available, and that in a beautiful place, does not mean that I would recommend “Dying to Get There.”

The three main arteries to my heart had completely occluded. Over a period of years, my body had grown its own bypasses… new arteries to bypass the clogged ones that no one could find… damage invisible to EKGs and stress tests…. Presenting, in  cardiac distress, my first EKGs came back normal; only a stress test showed a possible “Small blockage of a small artery….” Machines lying, as they have for the more than ten years I have complained of shortness of breath and a racing heart. Three main arteries completely blocked and the machine showed a “Possible” small blockage of a minor artery.

Sent to a second hospital, they were to catheterize my heart, with the understanding that the blocked artery “might be too small to stent.” What an eyeopener to awake and find that, in fact, I was days or minutes from a fatal heart attack… Yet, I had known it to be true for many years. I had been faced with the negative results of a hundred tests and been sent home from emergency rooms, diagnosed with “Gastric Distress” more times than I can count… Never give up! It was, the hand of God that saved my life. It was God who opened the eyes of my surgeons to the distress of my heart.

Faced with the diagnosis of a ninety-plus percent blockage of the three main arteries of life, I received the standard tips to say no to surgery, read a book, change my diet and save my own life. Sorry, flat on your back with a prognosis of imminent, sure, and certain death, is not the time to “read a book and change your diet”

What did I learn from all this? That the Psalmist knew his God, and that the phrase, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow if death, I will fear no evil” is not simply the work of a dead poet but a present and living reality for the child of God… You really can face death with no fear and peace in your heart… Really!

WATCHMAN: HEAR GOD!

The true Watchman, goes to God, already armed with a firm and solid knowledge of the Word of God. With such an anchor in place, and with an open mind and a hungry heart, the Watchman admits, to God, that he knows nothing. He asks God to open his eyes and let him see, to open his ears and let him hear, and to open his mind and let him understand. There is a covenant between the Watchman and God; the Watchman receives supernatural insight but, with that insight comes responsibility. What God shows that Watchman often goes against common thought and long standing Dogma in the Church and sharing is difficult.

Ezekiel 33:“As for you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a word from My mouth, give them a warning from Me. If I say to the wicked, ‘Wicked one, you will surely die,’ but you do not speak out to warn him about his way, that wicked person will die for his iniquity, yet I will hold you responsible for his blood. But if you warn a wicked person to turn from his way and he doesn’t turn from it, he will die for his iniquity, but you will have saved your life.

What God shows the Watchman must be shared. The Watchman is often overwhelmed by what he sees. What he sees, speaks of doom and darkness, of sword and famine and death. Having asked and now having seen, the Watchman now fears… dreads sharing what he has seen. With the insight and understanding comes the threat of Blood Guilt… God says that if the Watchman does not share what he has seen and warn his fellow man, he is guilty of their death. And so, the watchman, in fear and trembling, shares what he has seen.

Would be Watchmen, with little or no knowledge of the Word of God, often seek “New Knowledge” in the strength of their own flesh. Finding something odd, they latch on to it, study it, think about it. Then, having convinced themselves that they have discovered something new, they go to God. “God,” they say, “I know this is true. Please help me prove it.” Armed with their “New Knowledge” and encouraged by a five minute, one way prayer, they go on Facebook and confuse the Church of Jesus Christ; unaware of the Blood Guilt they have incurred… They are encouraged at the number of disciples they rapidly gain, and so, they begin to search for more “New Knowledge.” From such nonsense come cults, and many are damned.

Many years ago, having sinned greatly and fallen spectacularly, I promised God that, if He would restore me, I would say whatever He told me to say, no matter what. Perhaps, if I had known what I would be required to share, I would not have made such a promise. I agonize over what God shows me. I share things in fear and trembling. A handful of people understand and accept the message. The clear majority of Christians, unable to argue with what God has shown me, reject it anyway and resort to name calling as a last defense against the truth…

I am very human and supremely fallible. Almost two years ago, God told me that Obama would be followed up by a right wing, strongman… an egomaniac who would lead the United States and the world to destruction. While I was digesting that, I read an article about Mitt Romney and the Mormon Prophecy… the “White Horse Prophecy.” It sounded a lot like what I had seen of the coming Right-Wing Leader. I mixed the two, in my mind and wrote several articles, in which I did not predict or prophecy, but in which, I strongly suggested that Mitt Romney might very well be our next President. I mixed what God showed me with what I saw in the flesh and it confused people. We got the Right-Wing Egomaniac” God showed me, but it wasn’t Romney. If I confused you, I apologize.

Sometimes, no, often I see what other people are saying and, if it seems reasonable, I pass it along. Other watchmen are also fallible. Sometimes what I pass along is true, other times not. We must all examine all things prayerfully and in the light of plain Scripture.

No watchman sees it all or knows it all. I stand in awe of the kind and amount of information that God is giving through some of his Watchmen, but the best of them do not see everything. It is as we carefully and prayerfully weigh, measure and compare the messages of many that a clear picture of the whole begins to take form. You and I must take that which God shows us and compare it with what others are saying. We must pray that God begin to put the puzzle together for all of us and that even the careless Christian begins to get the message. What is coming is not pleasant or happy or good. All of God’s watchmen are seeing pain and sword and hunger and death. We are all seeing different aspects of the coming Judgment of a Holy and Righteous God wreaked on an arrogant, proud and evil land. We are seeing the coming of Antichrist, the destruction of the United States and the New World Order that will rise, like a phoenix, out of the ashes… Not pleasant stuff…

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

Heaven is my home and my hope is eternal. If I did not believe that, I would be thinking about suicide. You must get your mind off of this world. You must take up your cross and follow Jesus. You must make every effort, with mind, soul and spirit, to make Heaven your home. You must determine that whatever happens, you will cling to the cross and follow Jesus. If your hope is in this nation, your house, your home, your job… you are going to die a hopeless and meaningless death… disappointed beyond all measure. If you are clinging to the cross, following Jesus, if Heaven is your home, you will be able to hold firm to the end and you will receive a Crown of Righteousness on the other side.

Philippians 3:But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them filth, so that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ—the righteousness from God based on faith. 10 My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.

The answer is not in legalism or the law or following a bunch of rules… you will die a miserable failure if you try. The answer is found in a very real relationship with a living God. You are saved by Grace, you are free from the Law, you are in Christ and Christ is in you… the hope of Glory. Get to know Jesus… wrap yourself up in his arms and hold on tightly. This thing is personal. You do not succeed in marriage by memorizing the Marriage Handbook and closely following the rules. You succeed in marriage by loving and respecting your spouse and by getting to know them intimately. You are a part of the Bride of Christ. Get to know your spouse… love him and respect him… Therein lies the highway to Heaven…

Every time I write one of these posts, I think that it may be my last… If this is my last post, hang onto Jesus and meet me on the other side…

CURRENT EVENTS AND PAGAN RELIGION

The Phoenix, pictured in the Great Seal and called an eagle by the uninitiated, is an amazing creature, central to pagan religion. The phoenix dies in the fire and is birthed, or born anew, out of the smoke and flames of its mother.

It is very important that you understand the basics of pagan religion. The enemy we face today is not atheistic, the enemy is extremely religious. What is happening in the world today is not random but religious. The New World Order is being birthed with religious pageantry. The United States is being brought down with religious fervor. Everything from CERN to politics is driven by pagan religion. It is the religion of Nimrod and Babylon, in all its mutated forms, that is the center around which all current events revolve.

I cannot teach you all about pagan religion in a blog post. You will need to do a lot of homework. I am going to try to give you some of the basics, use those basics to explain current events, and point you in the right direction.

Paul stood up in the public square in Athens and said:

“Men of Athens! I see that you are extremely religious in every respect. For as I was passing through and observing the objects of your worship, I even found an altar on which was inscribed: ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD’…”

Paul took the time to study their beliefs and then used their own beliefs and words as a foundation from which to present the Gospel in terms to which the Athenians could relate.

Paul would also write:

“I have done this so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes.”

The point of this post is that you need to understand the religion of the pagan, if you would witness to him, and you must be aware of Luciferian religion (schemes) if you would not be taken advantage of.

Basics:

  • The “gods” are Lucifer himself, fallen angels, Nephilim (offspring of fallen angels and human women) and Gibborum, the offspring of the Nephilim. These are all unredeemable and their spirits roam the earth, possess fallen men and women, or in some cases, are locked up in Hades or the pit.
  • The gods who are locked up will escape.
  • Antichrist will be the spirit of Nimrod / Apollo / Apollyon / Abaddon, incarnate in the body of a human leader who has been killed and “resurrected.” The man’s spirit will be in Hell but his body animated and indwelt by the one who is “of the seven” but the eighth.
  • The gods are like monkeys; they respond to what they see on earth and do likewise in the heavens. Pagans hold orgies in the spring, believing that the gods will see, get turned on, and that their sex in the heavens will inseminate the crops and cause them to grow.
  • The Luciferians are putting on a massive puppet show, inducing labor pains on the earth, in the sincere belief that the gods will see, respond, and give birth to Apollo who will undo the chaos of Babel, reunite the world and restore a paradise where they can rule and reign with him forever.

The government of the United States was founded by Luciferians. These men followed a plan, developed in Hell and revealed to men like Sir Francis Bacon and Adam Weishaupt. Everything from thirteen colonies being united into one to the choice of the year 1776 was based on Egyptian religion, taught by Weishaupt and written by Sir Francis a book called, “The New Atlantis.” All this was done in secret and Christians were taught that these were “Christian” principles.

The United States was formed by a violent revolution. It could have been founded without war or bloodshed but it could not be simply “founded”, it had to be “birthed”. Birth produces a living thing, and the United States had to live as a spiritual entity. Birth cannot be accomplished without blood and pain… there had to be pain and bloodshed; thus, the Revolution.

The Phoenix, pictured in the Great Seal and called an eagle by the uninitiated, is an amazing creature, central to pagan religion. The phoenix dies in the fire and is birthed, or born anew, out of the smoke and flames of its mother. The United States is, to the pagans, the mother of the New World Order. What was accomplished on one continent must now be repeated on a world-wide scale. The New World Order is the United States, like a phoenix, born out of the fire and smoke of its mother; born stronger better, and bigger than its predecessor.

Birth involves pain and blood. The phoenix is born out of the fire and smoke of its predecessor… these are basic truths to the Luciferian and Masonic religion. Remember that the gods are inspired to act and controlled by that which happens on earth. The Luciferians, whether they be the Elite who understand and commune with Lucifer, or the Roman Jesuit, or the Muslim Cleric, or the American Politician, all understand that the new cannot be birthed outside of pain, death, bloodshed, and fire. (This is why Sherman had to burn the South.)

The Luciferians are committed to the idea of a New World Order:

  • They believe that Apollo will rise, incarnate in the body of a man. That cannot happen unless a man dies.
  • They see the entire world, under the command of Apollo, healthy, rich, and United… a global version of the United States. For that to happen, the United States must crash and burn.
  • New York City is the greatest city on earth and home to the United Nations. When New York, and the United Nations burn; out of the ashes, like a phoenix, the New World Order will be born.
  • When Washington DC burns, a new city will be born. What has been the capital of the United States will be reborn as the capital city of the world.
  • This birth requires excruciating, bone breaking pain and extreme bloodshed. This is a reasonable sacrifice in the mind of the Luciferian, the Jesuit and the Master Mason… all of whom consider themselves to be above the fray and immune to the pain.
  • Everything and everyone around them will die, but they are the elect, and as such, they will survive to rule and reign with Apollo in the New World Order.

It takes hundreds of hours of study and the help of God’s Holy Spirit to really understand the big picture. Please note that this is the inverse of the picture painted in Scripture but they fit together like a hand in a glove.

  • Why would Americans want to see America burn? Now you know.
  • Why would Americans encourage rioting and bloodshed? You have the answer.
  • Why would a Caucasian Jew, a billionaire named George Soros, give millions of dollars to Black Lives Matters and Muslim radicals in the United States? If you understand his religion, you have the answer.
  • Why the monstrous, divisive fight choreographed between Trump and Hillary? If you understand what they and their Puppet-Masters believe, it all makes sense…

Why am I sharing this, knowing that it could cost my life and the lives of my family? “I have done this so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes.”

THE DEATH OF THE BIRD GOD

After an hour or so, the people were in a demon induced frenzy. The holy man, who had been sitting alongside the fire, smoking his hallucinogens, stood slowly and approached a girl of about 14 years of age, quietly tapping her on the shoulder…

This is a true story:

The little bird that twitted from branch to branch was innocent enough but the demon, who pretended to be the god that bird had come to represent, was bloodthirsty and evil beyond imagination.

The people who called the little bird God were gathered around the fire, as naked as the day they were born. Slowly at first, but then more rapid and insistent, the drum began to beat in that beat so familiar to Satanists around the world.

After an hour or so, the people were in a demon induced frenzy. The holy man, who had been sitting alongside the fire, smoking his hallucinogens, stood slowly and approached a girl of about 14 years of age, quietly tapping her on the shoulder. Taking his cue, she approached the fire and quickly threw in her first-born son. The baby screamed for a second or two but was quickly silenced by the flames that snuffed the life from his tiny body.

And the Bird-God, speaking through the shaman, promised to protect the tribe from the cannibals they feared with an unnatural terror.

Standing beside the fire stood a young boy, perhaps ten years old. Suddenly sickened by the sight of the burning infant, he ran into the woods, weeping. “God” he cried, “if you are a god, you cannot want a mother to throw her child into the fire.” Dazed and confused, he ran; not knowing where he was going. He would run for a day and a night, passing through impassable jungle, weeping and calling out to a God he did not know.

Some twenty miles from his tribe, on a major river in Ecuador, stood a strange, almost American looking house. The young couple who lived there were missionaries. They had heard of the boy’s tribe while still in Bible College and determined that they would reach that tribe for Jesus. Moving to Ecuador, they had no way of contacting the tribe. Other Indians, even Christians, were terrified of the Tribe. The word on the river was that the tribe beheaded and roasted any outsider they came across. No one would venture into that part of the jungle.

Not knowing what else to do, the young couple built a house on the river, as close as they could safely get to the tribe. For more than a year, they would pray for the tribe every day. It wasn’t much… some of their supporters were getting impatient and their support check begin to get smaller by the month… Still they prayed for the tribe that everyone assured them could not be reached.

Then came that morning. Rising at sunrise, coffee in hand, they went out on the front porch to pray for their beloved but unknown tribe. There, to their great surprise, on the top step, lay a bloodied and exhausted little Indian boy…

That boy would become a son to them. He learned English and Spanish and he learned the Bible. In the Bible and through his newly adopted parents, the boy met and came to know the God he had called out to the night the baby burned.

Two years later, at the ripe old age of twelve, he returned to his tribe and told them of the savior he had come to know. Soon they sent him back to the river to fetch the people of this marvelous God who loved them so much that He gave his own Son to deliver them. Surely, this God was more powerful than the little bird god who demanded the lives of their sons.

Within a few months every member of the tribe had confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I heard this story straight from the mouth of those missionaries. That was in the 1970s and they were older and retired even then. Surely they are in Heaven now but I have never forgotten their story.

Hebrews 11: 8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went out to a place he was going to receive as an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he was going.

Sometimes, no, often God’s ways are beyond our understanding. Would you move to the jungles of a foreign land, build a house and pray every day for a people everyone assured you could not be reached? When finances dwindled and you were reduced to eating nothing but beans and eggs every day, would you stay? If your answer is no, you need to repent and get right with God… God uses people who do not have to understand the details…

HOLD ON TO HOPE!

What do you do when you understand that the loss of all things is a distinct possibility?

Psalm 42:11

Why am I so depressed?
Why this turmoil within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
my Savior and my God.

Modern Christianity has been centered on the believer; My faith, My praise, My worship, My healing, My blessing, and so on, ad nauseum. Preachers have preached messages on how God wants to bless YOU, YOUR Healing, YOUR faith, and on and on and on. They have concentrated on health and wealth; “Your Best Life NOW!” (If your best life is now, you are going to Hell when you die!) Songs seem to emphasize the believer I worship you… I adore you. Blessings are all in the here and now. It was not always so…

In the Depression of the 1930s and the pain of the Second World War in the 1940s, Songs and sermons were centered on God and Heaven… The whole focus was “Over There.” We were suffering here and now, but God would make it right over there.

We are moving into a period that will bring greater pain than did the Great Depression or the war. Unfortunately, the Church has bought into a big lie; God loves America so much that He will never allow America or Americans to suffer loss. We have draped the Cross with an American Flag and given the Gospel a distinctly American twist. We have imagined that God sits on a red, white and blue throne and that Jesus lounges around Heaven in red, white and blue pajamas… To convince American Christians that Judgment is about to fall on the United States of America and that the country we have known will soon cease to exist, is almost impossible; after all, “We are a Christian Nation!”

I might point out that Christian Nations do not slaughter a million infants a year on the altar of Baal and Christian Nations do not glorify the sins of Sodom, but few would listen… Paul and Stephen, James and Peter may have died as Martyrs but American Christians get rich with Jesus… So much for reality.

The question I address here is a different one. What do you do when the reality of our current situation dawns on you? What do you do when you finally understand that there is a huge possibility that you and yours will be called on to suffer and die for Jesus? What do you do when you realize that your children may never grow up and that your Grandchildren may never be born? What do you do when you understand that the loss of all things is a distinct possibility? How are you supposed to react to the reality of pain, starvation, torture and death?

Do such things really happen to God’s Children? A reading of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments will clearly reveal that they do… A quick read through Foxe’s Book of Martyrs will open your eyes to reality… A quick Google search on Christian Persecution will make you want to throw your computer across the room… Jeremiah wrote of the suffering in Jerusalem during the Babylonian siege:

“Arise, cry aloud in the night at the beginning of the night watches; pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord; lift up your hands to Him for the life of your little ones who are faint because of hunger at the head of every street. See, O Lord, and look! With whom have You dealt thus? Should women eat their offspring, the little ones who were born healthy? Should priest and prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord? (Lamentations 2:19, 20)

If these things happen to God’s children, the children of promise and the receivers of the Covenants, why believe in God or follow him? Is this not depressing? Should we not grab our Teddy Bear and go sit in the corner, rocking and weeping?

I tell you no! Lift up your head, your redemption is closer now than it has ever been! You just need to change your focus from earth to Heaven, from the temporal to the eternal and from yourself to God. Christianity is not about you, it never was. Christianity is about God and about his Christ.

The WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM asks, “What is the chief end of man?” and gives the answer, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” Whatever you think about the catechism, that is the correct answer. The answer of the modern preacher may be, “To be glorified by God and made healthy and wealthy… but the catechism reveals the Biblical answer.

If the current and soon coming suffering are not to depress you, there are several things that you must do:

  • Center your heart on God
  • Wrap your mind around the concept of Heaven and Eternity
  • Understand that the end of life on earth is the beginning of an eternity with God
  • Realize that suffering here earns crowns there
  • Believe that sharing in the suffering and death of Jesus is a privilege
  • Rip the Flag off of the Cross and meditate on what Jesus suffered for you
  • Meditate on the Glory that is Christ Jesus’ because of what He suffered
  • Think about the Glory you will share, over there, because you chose to stand with Jesus when it hurt

Paul wrote, “My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death…” (Philippians 3:10)

Peter wrote, “But rejoice as you share in the sufferings of the Messiah, so that you may also rejoice with great joy at the revelation of His glory.” (1 Peter 4:13)

Paul was beheaded and Peter was crucified upside down. Awful, right? Do you think that they regret that today?

Christianity is not about you… IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU!

What is the end of the matter?

Revelation 7:9,10

After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands.  And they cried out in a loud voice:

Salvation belongs to our God,
who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!

I want to be in that crowd… I want to stand right next to you!
