THE McLAUGHLIN GROUP?

December 18, 2009
Daniel 10:16-17 “And behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: and then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.”
The following is a link that should cause every saint to seek the Lord and be about the issues of eternal significance:
AMERICAS COMING SUPER DEPRESSION (Watchmans Cry)
It goes without saying that a lot of strange developments are underway as scriptural fulfilment continues to transpire before our eyes. If we were to see the “whole” of what’s soon to break forth upon the earth, it’s possible that none of us would be able to convey it to those around us. We know that, after receiving the first vision, Daniels cogitations much troubled him and he initially kept it to himself. After the second vision he “was sick certain days.” When a person begins to understand the gravity of such things, a profound “sadness” enters in for the multitudes who aren’t prepared. Millions upon millions who, despite the warnings from scripture and signs everywhere, carry on with no regard for their souls. We are rushing headlong into a global governance (antichrist) senario and even many saints seem oblivious to it. It’s like the old saying “ignorance is bliss.” That may be true for a season, but ultimately, that mentality is fatal.
Last Monday, (Dec 14, 2009) My wife had a root canal performed by Dr. McLaughlin in Kalamazoo. The time involved with this procedure meant that I had well over an hour to hang out in the waiting area.  Unlike most waiting rooms, this one was very quiet and filled with soft plushy furniture. It was, without a doubt, a portal into the land of nod for anyone who doesn’t get adequate sleep. I was trying to read Daniel chapter 11 (the most intriguing of Daniels visions) but struggling to stay awake. Behind the counter, there were two ladies who are employed there. Both were probably in their early to mid thirties, and there was no outward evidence that they were unlike the multitudes of undiscerning folks with whom we associate daily. Professional courtesies and casual conversation; much of it surrounding holiday activities, seemed to be the primary attributes.
Then, a window of time opened up when nobody else was in the lobby, except for me; half asleep in the plushy chair, yet semi aware of the ambience. The conversation of the two ladies changed. They became somewhat quieter and began to speak in more sobering tones. I began to pick up on words unexpected from such a situation as this. Oh…how to relay this in print without sounding nutty. It was like:
“Blah blah blah blah, Martial law in 2010, blah blah blah….”
I was like “zzzzz….huh? What?” This instantly put the drowsy tendancies to flight and I began to train my ear in the direction of the counter. They were talking quietly, as to not freak out any clients, and so I had to really listen:
“Blah blah blah blah Global governmant blah blah Copenhagen…..orchestrated financial collapse, blah blah blah, tyranny”
It’s not often that one hears such conversation transpiring in the ambience. I thought of going over and entering into the conversation, but first I wanted to find out where they were coming from. Are they Tea Party  people? Perhaps they are avid listeners to Coast to Coast AM or  Alex Jones and gather information from such venues. Are they saints who really understand what’s transpiring in our world today and look for Jesus’ appearing? I began listening for scriptural references in the conversation that would offer clarity, however, the window closed quickly. The mailman came in with the days assortment and from that point on, everything was back to routine conversation. Whether they are in the household of faith, or simply ordinary citizens who see the intrusions of a global governing entity, this was an unexpected glimpse into the world view of these two ladies.
Just a note: I know a number of people who “see what’s happening” but don’t understand the spiritual significance, and tragically, don’t know the Lord Jesus. If a person enters eternity without knowing Jesus, all of their “understanding and intentions” will avail nothing.
I do think that, in some venues, there’s an awakening to the truth that things are not as they once were. And yet, by and large, the conversations of choice; even amongst many saints, suggest an almost “blind allegiance” to the status quo that most of us were born into. The arguements are rampant. “These things are cyclical.” “This country is too big to fail.” (As was the Roman Empire) “God wants us to enjoy our best life now by heaping to ourselves the goods of this world.” The arguements for continuance are loud. One would desire to believe them, because, when calamity arises suddenly, souls perish. The verse at the top of this post reveals that these are not pleasant things to talk about. But it’s imperative to have a clear understanding if were to not be taken by the deceptions of our day. Deceptions that will appear rock solid, but be a falsehood. This following passage seems to become more profound each time it’s visited:
Hebrews 3:12-13 “And take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God.
But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”
Last year, we were attending a high school football game as our younger daughter is in band. A play was executed and the running back was brought down close to the first down marker. My wife asked “did he make it?” I jokingly replied “I don’t know; I can’t see the big yellow line.” This is a reference to the computer generated yellow line that appears in televised football games to show where the first down marker is. It looks real; as though it’s painted right on the field, but it’s an illusion. We are daily bombarded with illusions as the lines between real and simulation continue to become more obscure. An investigation into the Blue Beam Project will cause one to realize just how deceptive these times are; even before the supernatural fireworks begin in full. The only thing that we can cling to is the Lord Jesus and his unchanging truths.
It’s a troubling thing. None of us can fully grasp the level at which the “big lie” will operate. The deceptions of the end are going to be so compelling; seemingly so scientifically stable, grounded in common sense, and beneficial to the well-being of all humanity, that one will seem utterly backwards for adhering to the old paths. If we’re trusting in anything other than the Lord Jesus and his word, we’ll likely be moved by such overwhelming presentations. A good exammple of this would be the extraterrestrial connection. (They are not extraterrestrials; they are fallen entities) In the hearts of many, such a “disclosure” would seem to supercede scripture. “After all” the arguement states “how can we be the only ones in a universe that contains hundreds of billions of galaxies; each of which contains hundreds of billions of stars?” I’m so concerned about our not grasping the panoramic intensity of these falsehoods that I consistantly pray about it.
Speaking of extra-terrestrials; here’s a link that I found a few days ago, which has also been placed on the “Spiritual Warfare” page:
UFO ALIEN ABDUCTION SLEUTH SPOTS CHRISTIAN SMOKING GUN
This involves people who, upon finding themselves in an abduction situation, have called upon the name of Jesus; which causes the entities to depart quickly. Sadly, however, this isn’t widely embraced by the “UFO comunity” as it challenges their preferred world view. For many, the lie is prefereable to the truth whereby they can be made free.
Well, it’s time to close for now as the conversation is drifting all over. To be close to Jesus is imprative. We cannot navigate these waters on our own, but we can do all things through Christ. May we be mindful of the multitudes all around us who know not the Lord. I can see a number of folks in my venue whom the Lord is working on, making it all the more imperative to walk in the Spirit. I praise God for the work that he’s doing in this household; despite all of the damage that I’ve done in the past. It’s amazing how razor-thin the line can be that separates gathering unto the Lord from scattering. An unkind word, a selfish agenda, even an untimely facial expression can cause an unbelievable amount of damage.
Galatians 5:16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lusts of the flesh.”
Blessings always in Jesus name.

  1. The number of clear prophetic fulfilments taking place, along with signs and wonders is astonishing. What is even more astonishing is the blindness of many. There is a real sense of “burying heads in the sand” when it comes to those in the church, and in a way, this is keeping the masses outside of the faith in the dark as they are not seeing or hearing those who should be “in the know” sounding any cry.

    The remanant who are sounding the trumpet, are copping “lunatic/fanatic status” thus compounding the problem.

    While I am concerned for those who are ignoring the skies, I am so excited about what is coming and playing out before our eyes, I cannot help but desire the Lord to come quickly!

    Thanks for always keeping us updated with the latest – there is never a dull moment in grace county! 😀

    P.S. Did you happen to receive the email I sent you containing a tract for you to peruse?


  2. Hi Five Peas. Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s been a hectic week here and I’ve not been on the internet much. Without a doubt, the lack of understanding is profound as so many are living as though the status quo will hold up forever. I pray that the Lord would grant us understanding and a door of utterance in the days ahead as many are certain to be “caught off guard.”

    I’ll check the e-mail when I get a chance to do so. Thanks so much for sending it. I’m always on the lookout for tracts that get to the heart of the matter. Thanks much.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.
