Checking In 12/19/08 (1123est)

December 19, 2008

Good morning to all. Today begins a layoff that will last at least two weeks and possibly a lot longer. This means that I should have more time to devote to this forum; updating certain things, responding to comments, visiting around, and somehow finishing my testimony. I don’t know how much longer we will have access to this venue and as such, placing out here that which the Lord has placed on our heart is imperative. There’s a strong sense in my spirit that next year at this time, we (the timbob household) will no longer be at this address and that much physical uncertainty is in the air.

Physical upheaval may abound, but the peace of God that passes all understanding is ever-present. It may well be that a collapse of the status quo will be the very factor that brings those in my family who know not God to faith in the Lord Jesus. The eternal standing of souls far outweighs any temporal inconveniences. So I look forward to the next two weeks and the next year with enthusiasm; knowing that the Lord is doing a mighty work and those who know him will be cities set on a hill as never before.  More on this later. As for now, I just wanted to offer an update; although I do plan to post sometime later in the weekend. That is unless “later in the weekend” finds me in an underground holding facility for the testimony of Jesus. (We never know what a day may hold)

When our affections are steadfast upon the Lord Jesus and we love not our lives in this world, it’s a liberty so complete that words cannot define it. (I cannot profess to have “arrived” at this, but I’m striving day by day) Jesus Christ is our life, our peace, and the one with whom we shall abide with throughout the eons to come “world without end.” This world is ending, but the age to come will abide forever. WOO HOO!

Colossians 3:1-4 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above,not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”

Please keep Morgan and Dustin in prayer. This is another area where I’m convinced that the Lord is doing a mighty work. It may well be that the biggest obstacle has been getting me to a place where I step aside and allow the Lord to do this mighty work. (It has taken a lot of prayer though. Praise God for being patient with us)

Here’s a link on Steve Quayles site that I found this morning and may be eye-opening.  SOUNDS OF SILENCE   I haven’t had time to read through it yet, but it seems to discuss psychological manipulation. Another link on Steves site is entitled MAITRAYA RISING and discusses one of many individuals who folks offer up as a potential antichrist candidate. Time will soon tell. To clarify an earlier error here, my fast visit to Steve Quayles site earlier caused me to think that the two links above were a single link. This is now clarified along with the erroneous address to the first story. I apolagize for any confusion. 

I wish to all a blessed day in Jesus.

  1. That article is no longer there?


  2. Hi Code. My mistake. It’s fixed now. Thanks for the alert.


  3. Hi Timbob,

    Lately I have been angry and disturbed at the path that Australia is taking politically. So many, many freedoms are being whittled away: more and more control is taken from the people, while they are seemingly oblivious or apathetic to what they are losing.

    Why do I share this? Because it sets the context for me to say how encouraged I am each time I read one of your posts. I need to be reminded, prodded back to the true reality – that this world is not my home.

    Thanks!


  4. Hi “beyonbdbluestockings” I certainly understand the frustration. The same thing is taking place here and with a dedicated socialist soon to be “coronated” one can only imagine what’s soon to come.

    For me the frustration comes when folks are totally clueless to what’s taking place. Even christians who study the scriptures daily and should have an idea of what the end times will be like,often seem caught up in the official storylines of the day and overcharged with collecting things.

    I remember reading a few months ago that we must sound the alarm while we can. A few will listen, most will not. We must seek out the few whose eyes and ears the Lord has opened. Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always encouraging to hear from you.

    Have a blessed morning in Jesus.
