Looking-To-Thee

August 3, 2009
August has always been a reflective time of year; comparable to a season which is soon to give way to more trying circumstances. The spiritual implications of this are undeniable. As summer moves into it’s final phase, I’m finding an overwhelming desire to just seek the Lord Jesus and be about those things of eternal significance. The end times senario is unfolding before us and eternity is closer today than it was yesterday. Although it’s not currently possible, I would love to just spend every day out in the streets proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ; the power of God whereby folks can be saved and lives transformed. In a world which is awash in ten-step programs that promise deliverance from a plethura of devices, only the blood of Jesus can wash away sin. Only through Jesus can a person escape the broad way leading to perdition and inherit everlasting life.
To seek the Lord and be in his will. To lay aside every tradition, every sin, every itinerary that’s born of men, and every distraction that would cause us to be standoffish toward the deep things of God. To ensure that we’re not harboring attachments to the temporal world that would foster shipwreck in the day of temptation. To be understanding of the times that we’re in and strive to be prepared to witness goings on in the natural that will astonish even the most spiritual amongst us. Those who walk close to God will know what to do when faced with unimaginable circumstances and deception. Look to Jesus and stand on his word. The warning in Matthew 24:24 should never be far from our daily cogitations. We must likewise be careful to not allow any drifting in these final moments of the age.  
This is probably more opinion than anything, but it seems to me that the days for seeking change through political manuverings are long gone. The earthly kingdoms that so many place great confidence in are soon to go the way of the chariots of Egypt. The days when one could just go with the flow of the professing christians in their ambience and get by are fastly slipping away. I fear, that a tragedy is about to unfold in the form of multitudes of believers not being spiritually prepared for the times that are at the door. Many are so convinced of a pre-tribulation rapture that they don’t even consider such things. Or they are so convinced that the current geo-political institutions can never be altered that they go about their daily routine as though the status quo will always be. To many, ponderings about the end of the age may be interesting, but they never actually enter the heart.
II Peter 3:3-4 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
One of the greatest deceptions is that of continuance. The idea that tomorrow will closely resemble today. Oftentimes our lips may profess to understand the lateness of the hour but our heart has a hard time believing it. A few months ago, our pastor stated words to the effect of “things are happening today that I never would have imagined.” To me it was a “heads-up,” so to speak of how unprepared most of us are. This age is quickly approaching its conclusion. Furthermore, in every second of every day, souls are passing a point of no return as they slip into the realm of eternity. Every day it becomes more pronounced as to how great the harvest is and how few the laborers are. Many profess to understand this, and yet so few seem to have their step hastened by this revelation. Despite all of our supposed understanding, most of us are still “lingering” as Lot did on the morning of judgment.
Genesis 19:15-16 “And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
And while he
lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him, and set him without the city.”
We are all in need of increased understanding concerning the lateness of the hour and the treacherous situation of those who know not the Lord Jesus. Add to this the understanding that we don’t know who will still be standing in the morning. There are souls, who are alive and well at this very moment , however, they will be in eternity before the sun shines again upon their earthly kingdom.  Likewise none of us know when our time here will conclude. Each tract has the potential; of being our final one and every post that we publish may be our last. It’s quite possible that our embodiment of works, done in Jesus name, will conclude without our being aware of it.
Well I’ll be going for now. A apolagize for not making the rounds in the blogosphere in the way that I like to. First shift is good for the home front, however, it hinders my blogging activity. Nonetheless, I’ll strive to get around in the following days. I actually feel closer to many of the saints in this venue than to those in my own ambience; even though I don’t get by as often as I would like. I find a lot of encouragement out here. I know that this post sounds similar to many offered up here over months gone by, but these things cannot be over-emphasized. The final passage below has also appeared in many of those similar postings, but it’s such a needful admonition. Until the next time, blessings always in Jesus name.
Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

  1. Amen Bro!
    Good and needful post.
    As far as going out on those streets full-time, as you already know, just keep faithful with what time He has given you. He will give the increase as you keep obedient to His will. Only through Him!


  2. Will come back to read this, but wanted to share another website with you. It’s David Wilkerson’s Time Square Church’s monthly newsletter prepared by Carter Conlon. They are really great.

  3. August has also brought to me a deep desire to abandon my plans and submerge myself in His word.

    I can not speak for what the Lord’s plan may be, but I trust in Him that all things will be revealed in His time.

    “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21


  4. Hi Timbob,

    This time of year is usually a time of reflection for me too, but mostly in the realm of homeschooling and seeking the Lord’s guidance as to what He would have me to do in that respect. I always appreciate your admonitions to draw closer to the Lord, because this is an absolute necessity no matter where we are at in our walk with God. No matter what transpires in this physical world, I want to stay anchored in Jesus.

    Blessings to you and your family,

    Carol


  5. A very much needed post. Not only will it help to keep us focused on what needs to be done in these final days, but gives us hope that it will not go on like this forever. God is calling us more than ever to put Him first, above our jobs, first in our desires, even above our families. He, at least in my walk, is becoming ever more demanding of my allegiance, commitment and obedience.

    This is very well written, and such a wonderful reminder to where our hearts and minds need to dwell.

    Til He comes,
    Debs


  6. Good post, Timbob, and it can’t be said often enough.

    Praying Lk 10:2b with you, Bro

    Cindy


  7. Hi Richard. It is important to utilize the time wisely that we have; not only in the strets but in any venue. It gets frustrating when the obligations of the day do so much to hinder that which the Lord has placed on our heart, but perhaps this has a positive side to it. Resistance only causes an intensifying of our determination to seek and fully utilize, the opportunities that do arise.

    Last saturday I made it to kalamazoo. “ON A WEEKEND!” This is almost unheard of as our weekends tend to be a flurry of activity on the homefront.

    While up there, I ordered a rubber stamp which has the number to a 24 hour prayer line. For months I’ve been bothered by our church’s phone number because it simply goes to an anonymous answering maching featuring the times of services and a promise to respond in the future. Not good for a situation where someone is at their wits end. Last one night last week, this idea was dropped into my heart quite unexpectedly; to order a stamp with such a number to place on the back of every tract.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.


  8. Hi Code. Thanks so much for this link. I’ll be sure to check it out when I can. It should also be placed on the “end times prophetic sites” page.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.


  9. Hi Darkscuptures. I visited your site last night, but was in too much of a rush to reply. I have placed it on the blogroll. To abandon all of our plans and seek the Lord with all that we are. What an awesome place to be. The peace and fellowship is out of this world. It’s a growing process to be sure, but each step forward has rewards that could not have been imagined in the earlier times.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.


  10. Hi Carol. It’s such a responsibility to teach the next generation in the ways that they should go. As such I can imagine how this month is a time of preparation; both spiritually and in the natural as well. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I’ll do the same when time permits (and the computer isn’t going nutty. lol)

    Blessings always in Jesus name.


  11. Hi Deb. Your comment about an increasing need for allegiance commitment, and obediance is very accurate and is the very thing that’s been on my heart so much lately. It’s partially the reason behind the previous post that deals with material lustings. It seems strange to many when our complete desire is unto the Lord, however, this is the place of absolute peace, joy that defies all of the worlds distractions, and provision as the Lord can sustain us regardless of the ambient circumstances.

    What an awesome place to be. I don’t claim to be completely “there” yet, but in thinking and writing about it, I’m encouraged all the more to seek it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.


  12. Hi Cindy. Thanks so much for your prayers and for taking time to stop by. Not only in the streets and other public venues, but in my own family as well, lives are in total chaos by the enemies devices. To think of the sheer number of folks that I know of whose lives are living in darkness and disarray is staggering….and very sobering.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.


  13. Timbob – what a heartfelt and powerful post – I could feel the heaviness in your spirit as I often feel in mine.

    The other day at the beach I had this image come to mind – all the people we hanging out doing what they do – each day like the nex, focused on their little worlds – and a tidal wave came upon them and carried them away – but it wasn’t a flood of water – but of lies. I felt like this is what is happening now. I have felt that the end is upon us and as you said those who are waiting for the rapture aren’t looking – and they will most likely be caught off guard. Jesus told us to watch over and over so that we wouldn’t be deceived. He has warned us – are we heeding his warning and seeking and watching for the deception? Now more than ever we need to be seeking God’s truth in His Word and listening to His voice not the voices of others – because they may be off. But if we seek His voice and have the courage to follow it – and it does take courage -then no evil will befall us.

    These times will test who we REALLY trust.

    Rachel


  14. Hi Rachel. Great analogy about how the tidal wave. Everyones busy with their little circle of interests and paying no attention to the wall of delusion that’s about to wash over them. II Thessalonians chapter 2 comes to mind as I read this. In fact, this analogy of a tidal wave is going to be a pondering for a while.

    Thanks so much for stoping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.


  15. PRETRIB RAPTURE DISHONESTY

    by Dave MacPherson

    When I began my research in 1970 into the exact beginnings of the pretribulation rapture belief still held by many evangelicals, I assumed that the rapture debate involved only “godly scholars with honest differences.” The paper you are now reading reveals why I gave up that assumption many years ago. With this introduction-of-sorts in mind, let’s take a long look at the pervasive dishonesty throughout the history of the 179-year-old pretrib rapture theory:

    Mid-1820’s – German scholar Max Weremchuk’s work “John Nelson Darby” (1992) included what Benjamin Newton revealed about John Darby in the mid-1820’s during his pre-Brethren days as an Anglican clergyman:
    “J. N. Darby was a very subtle man. He had been a lawyer, or at least educated for the law. Once he wanted his Archbishop to pursue a certain course, when he (J.N.D.) was a curate in his diocese. He wrote a letter, therefore, saying he had been educated for the law, knew what the legal course would properly be; and then having written that clearly, he mystified the remainder of the letter both in word and in handwriting, and ended up by saying: You see, my Lord, such being the legal aspect of the case it would unquestionably be the best course for you to pursue, etc. And the Archbishop couldn’t make out the legal part, but rested on Darby’s word and did as he advised. Darby afterwards laughed over it, and indeed he showed a copy of the letter to Tregelles. This is not mentioned in the Archbishop’s biography, but in it is the fact that he spoke of Darby as ‘the most subtle man in my diocese.’ ”
    This reminds me of an 1834 letter by Darby which spoke of the “Lord’s coming.” Darby added, concerning this coming, that “the thoughts are new” and that during any teaching of it “it would not be well to have it so clear.” Darby’s deviousness here was his usage of a centuries-old term – “Lord’s coming” – to cover up his desire to sneak the new pretrib idea into existing posttrib groups in very low-profile ways!
    1830 – In the spring of 1830 a young Scottish lassie, Margaret Macdonald, came up with the novel notion of a catching up [rapture] of Spirit-filled “church” members before Antichrist’s “trial” [tribulation] of non-Spirit-filled “church” members – the first instance I’ve found of clear “pretrib” teaching (which was part of a partial rapture scheme). In Sep. 1830 “The Morning Watch” (a journal produced by London preacher Edward Irving and his “Irvingite” followers, some of whom had visited Margaret a few weeks earlier) began repeating her original thoughts and even her wording but gave her no credit – the first plagiarism I’ve found in pretrib history. Darby was still defending posttrib in Dec. 1830.
    Pretrib promoters have long known the significance of her main point: a rapture of “church” members BEFORE the revealing of Antichrist. Which is why John Walvoord quoted nothing in her revelation, why Thomas Ice habitually skips over her main point but quotes lines BEFORE and AFTER it, and why Hal Lindsey muddies up her main point so he can (falsely) assert that she was NOT a pretribber! (Google “X-Raying Margaret” for info about her.)
    NOTE: The development of the 1800’s is thoroughly documented in my book “The Rapture Plot.” You’ll learn that Darby wasn’t original on any chief aspect of dispensationalism (but plagiarized the Irvingites); that pretrib was initially based on only OT and NT symbols and not clear Scripture; that the symbols included the Jewish feasts, the two witnesses, and the man child – symbols adopted by Darby during most of his career; that Darby’s later reminiscences exaggerated his earliest pretrib development, and that today’s defenders such as Thomas Ice have further overstated what Darby overstated; that Irvingism didn’t need later reminiscences to “clarify” its own early pretrib development; that ancient hymns and even the writings of the Reformers were subtly revised to make it appear they had taught pretrib; and that after Darby’s death a clever revisionist quietly made many changes in early Irvingite and Brethren documents in order to steal credit for pretrib away from the Irvingites (and their female inspiration!) and give it dishonestly to Darby! (Before continuing, Google the “Powered by Christ Ministries” site and read “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers” – a sample of the current exciting internetism!)
    1920 – Charles Trumbull’s book “The Life Story of C. I. Scofield” told only the dispensationally-correct side of his life. Two recent books, Joseph Canfield’s “The Incredible Scofield and His Book” (1988) and David Lutzweiler’s “The Praise of Folly” (2009), reveal the other side including his being jailed as a forger, dishonestly giving himself a non-conferred “D.D.” etc. etc.!
    1967 – Brethren scholar Harold Rowdon’s “The Origins of the Brethren” quoted Darby associate Lord Congleton who was “disgusted with…the falseness” of Darby’s accounts of things. Rowdon also quoted historian William Neatby who said that others felt that “the time-honoured method of single combat” was as good as anything “to elicit the truth” from Darby. (In other words, knock it out of him!)
    1972 – Tim LaHaye’s “The Beginning of the End” (1972) plagiarized Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970).
    1976 – Charles Ryrie”s “The Living End” (1976) plagiarized Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970) and “There’s A New World Coming” (1973).
    1976 – After John Walvoord’s “The Blessed Hope and the Tribulation” (1976) brutally twisted Robert Gundry’s “The Church and the Tribulation” (1973), Gundry composed and circulated a 35-page open letter to Walvoord which repeatedly charged the Dallas Seminary president with “misrepresentation,” “misrepresentations” (and variations)!
    1981 – “The Fundamentalist Phenomenon” (1981) by Jerry Falwell, Ed Dobson, and Ed Hindson heavily plagiarized George Dollar’s 1973 book “A History of Fundamentalism in America.”
    1984 – After a prof at Southeastern College of the Assemblies of God in Florida told me that the No. 2 man at the AG world headquarters in Missouri – Joseph Flower – had the label of posttrib, my wife and I had two hour-long chats with him. He verified what I had been told. But we were dumbstruck when he told us that although AG ministers are required to promote pretrib, privately they can believe any other rapture view! Flower said that his father, an AG co-founder, was also posttrib. We also learned while in Springfield that when the AG’s were organized in 1914, the initial group was divided between posttribs and pretribs – but that the pretribs shouted louder which resulted in that denomination officially adopting pretrib! (For details on this and other pretrib double-mindedness, Google “Pretrib Hypocrisy.”)
    1989 – Since 1989 Thomas Ice has referred to the “Mac-theory” (his reference to my research), giving the impression there’s no solid evidence that Macdonald was the real pretrib originator. But Ice carefully conceals the fact that no eminent church historian of the 1800’s – whether Plymouth Brethren or Irvingite – credited Darby with pretrib. Instead, they uniformly credited leading Irvingite sources, all of which upheld the Scottish lassie’s contribution! Moreover, I’m hardly the only modern scholar seeing significance in Irvingism’s territory. Others in recent years who have noted it, but who haven’t mined it as deeply as I have, include Fuller, Ladd, Bass, Rowdon, Sandeen, and Gundry.
    1989 – Greg Bahnsen and Kenneth Gentry produced evidence in 1989 that Lindsey’s book “The Road to Holocaust” (1989) plagiarized “Dominion Theology” (1988) by H. Wayne House and Thomas Ice.
    1990 – David Jeremiah’s and C. C. Carlson’s “Escape the Coming Night” (1990) massively plagiarized Lindsey’s 1973 book “There’s A New World Coming.” (For more info, type in “Thieves’ Marketing” on MSN or Google.)
    1991 – Paul Lee Tan’s “A Pictorial Guide to Bible Prophecy” (1991) plagiarized large amounts of Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970).
    1991 – Militant Darby defender R. A. Huebner claimed in 1991 to have found new evidence that Darby was pretrib as early as 1827 – three years before Macdonald. Halfway through his book Huebner suddenly admitted that his evidence could refer to something completely un-rapturesque. Even though Thomas Ice admitted to me that he knew that Huebner had “blown” his so-called evidence, prevaricator Ice continues to tell the world that Huebner has “positive evidence” that Darby was pretrib in 1827! Ice also conceals the fact that Darby, in his own 1827 paper, was looking for only “the restitution of all things” and “the times of refreshing” (Acts 3:19,21) – which Scofield doesn’t see fulfilled until AFTER a future tribulation!
    1992 – Tim LaHaye’s “No Fear of the Storm” (1992) plagiarized Walvoord’s “The Blessed Hope and the Tribulation” (1976).
    1992 – This was when the Los Angeles Times revealed that “The Magog Factor” (1992) by Hal Lindsey and Chuck Missler was a monstrous plagiarism of Prof. Edwin Yamauchi’s scholarly 1982 work “Foes from the Northern Frontier.” Four months after this exposure, Lindsey and Missler stated they had stopped publishing and promoting their book. But in 1996 Dr. Yamauchi learned that the dishonest duo had issued a 1995 book called “The Magog Invasion” which still had a substantial amount of the same plagiarism! (If Lindsey and Missler ever need hernia operations, I predict that the doctors will tell them not to lift anything for a long time!)
    1994 – In 1996 it was revealed that Lindsey’s “Planet Earth – 2000 A.D.” (1994) had an embarrassing amount of plagiarism of a Texe Marrs book titled “Mystery Mark of the New Age” (1988).
    1995 – My book “The Rapture Plot” reveals the dishonesty in Darby’s reprinted works. It’s often hard to tell who wrote the footnotes and when. It’s easy to believe that the notes, and also unsigned phrases inside brackets within the text, were a devious attempt by someone (Darby? his editor?) to portray a Darby far more developed in pretrib thinking than he actually had been at the time. I found that some of the “additives” had been taken from Darby’s much later works, when he was more developed, and placed next to or inside his earliest works! One footnote by Darby’s editor, attached to Darby’s 1830 paper, actually stated that “it was not worth while either suppressing or changing” anything in this work! If his editor wasn’t open to such dishonesty, how can we explain such a statement?
    Post-1995 – Thomas Ice’s article “Inventor of False Pre-Trib Rapture History” states that my book “The Rapture Plot” is “only one of the latest in a series of revisions of his original discourse….” And David Reagan in his article “The Origin of the Concept of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture” repeats Ice’s falsehood by claiming that I have republished my first book “over the years under several different titles.”
    Although my book repeats a bit of the Macdonald origin of pretrib (for new readers), all of my books are packed with new material not found in my other works. For some clarification, “The Incredible Cover-Up” has photos of pertinent places in Ireland, Scotland, and England not found in my later books plus several chapters dealing with theological arguments; “The Great Rapture Hoax” quotes scholars throughout the Church Age, covers Scofield’s hidden side, a section on Powerscourt, the 1980 election, the Jupiter Effect, Gundry’s change, and more theological arguments; “The Rapture Plot” reveals for the first time the Great Evangelical Revisionism/Robbery and includes appendices on miscopying, plagiarism, etc.; and “The Three R’s” shows hypocritical evangelicals employing occultic beliefs they say they have long opposed!
    So Thomas Ice etc. are twisting truth when they claim I am only a revisionist. Do they really think that my publishers DON’T know what I’ve previously written?
    Re arguments, Google “Pretrib Rapture – Hidden Facts” and also obtain “The End Times Passover” and “Why Christians Will Suffer ‘Great Tribulation’ ” (AuthorHouse, 2006) by media personality Joe Ortiz.
    1997 – For years Harvest House Publishers has owned and been republishing Lindsey’s book “There’s A New World Coming.” During the same time Lindsey has been peddling his reportedly “new” book “Apocalypse Code” (1997), much of which is word-for-word the same as the Harvest House book – and there’s no notice of “simultaneous publishing” in either book! Talk about pretrib greed!
    1997 – This is the year I discovered that more than 50 pages of Dallas Seminary professor Merrill Unger’s book “Beyond the Crystal Ball” (Moody Press, 1973) constituted a colossal plagiarism of Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970). After Lindsey’s book came out, Unger had complained that Lindsey’s book had plagiarized his classroom lecture notes. It was evident that Unger felt that he too should cash in on his own lectures! (The detailed account of this Dallas Seminary dishonesty is revealed in my 1998 book “The Three R’s.”)
    1998 – Tim LaHaye’s “Understanding the Last Days” (1998) plagiarized Lindsey’s “There’s A New World Coming” (1973).
    1999 – More than 200 pages (out of 396 pages) in Lindsey’s 1999 book “Vanished Into Thin Air” are virtually carbon copies of pages in his 1983 book “The Rapture” – with no “updated” or “revised” notice included! Lindsey has done the same nervy thing with several of his books, something that has allowed him to live in million-dollar-plus homes and drive cars like Ferraris! (See my Google articles “Deceiving and Being Deceived” and “Thieves’ Marketing” for further evidence of this notably pretrib vice.)
    2000 – A Jack Van Impe article “The Moment After” (2000) plagiarized Grant Jeffrey’s book “Final Warning” (1995).
    2001 – Since 2001 my web article “Walvoord’s Posttrib ‘Varieties’ – Plus” has been exposing his devious muddying up of posttrib waters. In some of his books he invented four “distinct” and “contradictory” posttrib divisions, claiming that they are either “classic” or “semiclassic” or “futurist” or “dispensational” – distinctions that disappear when analyzed! His “futurist” group holds to a literal future tribulation and a literal millennium but doesn’t embrace “any day” imminency. But his “dispensational” group has the same non-imminency! Moreover, tribulational futurism is found in every group except the first one, and he somehow admitted that a literal millennium is in all four groups! On the other hand, it’s the pretribs who consistently disagree with each other over their chief points and subpoints – but somehow end up agreeing that there will be a pretrib rapture! (See my chapter “A House Divided” in my book “The Incredible Cover-Up.”)
    2001 – Since my “Deceiving and Being Deceived” web item which exposed the claims for Pseudo-Ephraem” and “Morgan Edwards” as teachers of pretrib, there has been a piranha-like frenzy on the part of pretrib bodyguards and their duped groupies to “discover” almost anything before 1830 walking upright on two legs that seemed to have at least a remote hint of pretrib! (An exemplary poster boy for such pretrib practice is Grant Jeffrey. To get your money’s worth, Google “Wily Jeffrey.”)

    FINALLY: Don’t take my word for any of the above. Read my 300-page book “The Rapture Plot” which has a jillion more documented details on the long-hidden but now-revealed history of the dishonest, 179-year-old, fringe-British-invented, American-merchandised-until-the-real-bad-stuff-happens pretribulation rapture fad. If this book of mine doesn’t “move” you, I will personally refund what you paid for it!

    [recently noticed the above bit on the web!]


  16. Hi Anna. Thank you for bringing forth this examination of how the pre-tribulation doctrine came to be. It’s such a heartbreaking tragedy because so many saints are falling for this. So much so that they simply don’t consider preparing for the times ahead seriously. A few moments ago, during one of the previous replies, this thing was dropped into my heart. “None of us, even the most discerning amongst us, have a full grasp of how the end times senario will appear.” When Jesus stated that it would be tribulation like the world had never seen before, he was warning us of this.

    It was a few years ago that I came to the understanding of the rapture timing. Sitting in this very room, I suddenly understood this thing. I remember praying “Lord, if this is true, my wanting it to be different will not change things. I pray that you will prepare me for whatever I must endure.”

    That prayer changed my entire outlook. The fearfulness that I once had toward the idea of going threough the tribulation was dispelled. Even today, as we see the beast system being implemented at incredible speed, there’s a song in my heart; knowing that Jesus return is at hand and that every knee shall bow.

    Thankls again for offering this up. I pray that others will take the time to read through the comment that you have left here.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.
