The Purpose For the Tribulation

Charges---clever comments on this:

Fascinating Week for Trump Haters

 I wonder if Blogger will publish this post because I used the H word.

I generally try not to use profanity. I believe it is a demonic force. People under its power can't speak a sentence without using some expletive, and I try to muzzle my mouth---and my thoughts so I never give in to that demon.

I do think there is a demon behind every corner, every tree. There are a lot of them, but God's warriors, His angels, are out there protecting me from their power at all times.

Really.

The supernatural world is real.

My hat's off to Disney for their "minion" characters. Demons are oft referred to as minions, and they are legion. Disney knows this. They are cute in the movies, but they are anything but cute in reality. I'm glad Disney calls attention to their ubiquitous presence.


I use the word "hate" carefully. Hate can be a trigger word these days. I do remember "Bush Derangement Syndrome" from 8 years ago.

I had a form of Obama derangement syndrome. I admit it. I survived those eight years he was in power.

I'm seeing "Trump Derangement Syndrome" in ways that BDS never manifested.

I was having a nice dinner with someone this past summer. She asked me who I voted for, and I said "Not Hillary."

She rose from the table, let out an expletive, and ran to the bathroom!

Her son said, "Why does she always do that??!!"

That's TDS.


Now that Hillary Clinton is bound for jail, (the Russia thing) I wonder what these Hillary supporters are really thinking.

Expletives?

Probably.

I'm not stupid.


As someone who TRIES to please Christ I want to show love to these people. I need to hold MY tongue, and NOT give in to expletives, ever.

I can't stop other people from using them, but I can hold my tongue.

I can't force my convictions on anyone, but I can live them. I can prove that following Christ is the best possible way to navigate this short life.


Politics come and go. Crime happens. People swear and use foul language. It's all a part of our world. What is important is staying true to the One who really matters, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Ezra Klein Doesn't Like Conservatives

News flash, right?

Last night I heard him rant against conservative YouTubers.

He accuses everyone of fascism and bigotry. He calls everyone "alt-right" and White Supremicists.

He is a liberal writer for the Huffington Post, and his accusations, completely unfounded, are ridiculous.

He is lying.

If there were not the alternative media we'd all be brainwashed by NPR, FOX, CBS, ABC, NBC.

But we have other sources of news now, and we are happy to be able to learn from them.

I actually think the BBC is more balanced than any American mainstream source.

As Michael Snyder pointed out this week in his excellent article, the media is owned by a very elite group. He fingered the media parent groups and their bias.

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/10-things-about-the-u-s-news-media-that-they-do-not-want-you-to-know

It's good to have balance, people.

Listen with discernment. Check out the bias of the writer.

I'm up front with my biases. You've been warned.

If you are only listening to any of the above mentioned news sources you are getting fed a party line.
Be thankful for free speech and our rights here in this country.

Conspiracy, Again

As you know, by now, I am a total conspiracy theorist.

I believe Lucifer is the grand Conspirator, the evil one, and he is constantly scheming to beat God.

God, who also could be and has been labeled the "Grand Conspirator," has his plan that is marching on daily, new events He prophesied in Scripture being fulfilled at a record pace.

God is LOVE.

---And He is just. The punishment comes.

That said, I am always amazed by the blind optimism of the human race.

I, too, am a person of hope. I have the blessed hope of Christ's return for me.

I have zero hope in this world. I can't wait to see Jesus' face!

Today, as a reader of current events, I am not exactly surprised that there is not a single mention in the MAINSTREAM MEDIA of Project Veritas' new undercover videos, conversations revealing incredible bias and dirty tricks within the staff of the New York Times----the "Old Gray Lady."

We all know the NYT is liberal. It's heinously so.

Next up, the BBC is talking about Trump's conversation with a war widow and how despicable it was. So says a liberal Democrat Congresswoman.

A general who has also lost his son to war listened to the Trump side of the conversation and he found nothing amiss with Donald's condolences to the widow.

It's all perspective. The BBC says this will "ruin" Trump. It's only one side of the story, but their blind hate of a person colors everything for them. It's a conspiracy to report the side of the story unflattering to Trump.

I am no fan of Trump, but I certainly see the bias against him. I think he is the person in power for this crazy time of the end. God put him there, clearly, and though I do not respect him I can see how things are working out.

And what about the uranium deal the Clintons had with Russia?

Crickets.

There is this sense of personal high ground in most liberals----in all of us. We all think we have the moral high ground, right?

Unless we realize that we are dirty sinners, all of us have the seeds of a Harvey Weinstein in us. Look back----you stole something once, at least, right? You've lied. You've cheated. You've thought lustful things and you've hated.

Adultery and murder, says God.

You are guilty.

You badly need Jesus!

How can you navigate the wiles of the devil, the Conspiracy Mogul, without the moral foundation of God's Word?

It's impossible, and you know it, deep down in your heart.

There is freedom in Christ. You can place your trust in Him, believing He shed His blood on the cross for your sins. You can receive Him into your heart by asking forgiveness for your sins and turning away from them.

Oh, you'll sin again. That's a given. The Apostle Paul talked about the sins he continued to struggle with, the things that he was not freed from in this body. He's so right. We all have our struggles. But we are free from the deathly punishment that is coming for sin.

We have hope.

Eyes wide open, my friends. The Devil is a player, and he's cunning, wise, and very attractive. He's happy to have you believe the Bible is a myth, a fairy story.

If you believe that you are right in his palm.

The Rationalists have no concept of the supernatural. They keep their heads in the sand regarding anything beyond their own five senses. They have not been born again spiritually, able to sense the unseen realm that permeates our existence.

And they won't. They are blind. They refuse to see.


If you want to know Christ, ask. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Take out your Bible, and read it with the mindset that you are OPEN to His presence, His forgiveness, His love.

Start in the book of John. It's so succinct.

The Bible is the most amazing book ever.  Those of us who know it, read it daily, study it, hear it, fellowship around it, are aware of this! We are satisfied.

Knowing the Truth is always helpful in navigating this life journey we are on. I'm so thankful for my salvation in Jesus Christ.

God is so good to me.

Open your heart. Trust Him.

You have all of eternity to thank Him for saving you.

The Grand Scheme plays out, and you want to be on the side of Truth.

And, No, Trump and Mussolini aren't Alike (Because the Marxists would like you to think so!)

I Should be Planting Tulip Bulbs

Every morning when I get in the car to head for school I sing my "Maranatha" song. I feel so acutely that Jesus is coming soon, and I've been watching for decades.

The world is plumb crazy.

Harvey Weinstein, hurricanes, earth tremors, Trump hate, Hollywood garbage, Sex, Crime, Conspiracy, Disease, Mayhem.

It's all there.

As believers we are the most stable of stable. We knew this was coming, we are ready for it. We are the stability in this mad, mad world.

Like I said, I should be planting tulip bulbs, in hope of a springtime appearance of pink flowers. I wonder if spring will come this year.

I wonder.

Can this world keep on this track of sorrow?

My liberal friends are moaning and groaning. They think Trump is the reason for every evil.

What a burden for a man to bear! I wonder how he does it.

I watched the Project Veritas clips from the New York Times. There is a terrible bias against Trump, but even more against Mike Pence---who from all accounts is just a decent guy.

Something stinks.

Maybe Pence is evil. Maybe he is the devil incarnate, masquerading as an evangelical Christian.

Oh, wait! The liberal mind thinks that EVANGELICALS are the devil incarnate.


We're getting used to it. Lucifer laughs. He loves calling wrong right and right, wrong.

There is this "Me Too" campaign running on social media. I can't imaging there is a girl on this earth that hasn't experienced some type of harassment, or what could be termed that. There are those who have been raped, gutted, and beheaded, too. I believe that we all suffer from the sinful nature that pervades this earth.

However, the perps are probably far fewer than the male population as a whole. One perpetrator can do a lot of damage. I'm afraid for my sons, strong, upright young men, as far as I know, and what the World of the Female is accusing the masculine world of right now is frightening.

Sexual harassment is experienced far and wide. It's sin. Not every man has experienced it like most women have. That's a given. It's good to finger it, to stop it. Unfortunately the blame is laid at the feet of the innocent sometimes.

There are more than one of the Harvey Weinstein type.


The only way to make sense of it is to call it sin, and deal with it like one deals with sin.

Our compass is Scripture, and if it isn't your compass you have very little to stand on.

I spent two days listening to Dr. Tommy Mitchell MD from the Answers in Genesis ministry. His first message was on the authority of the Bible and that is where we all must begin.

If you don't stand on Scripture you don't have much to stand on, do you?

Scripture identifies sin, so if you have sin in your heart the Word of God is extremely unattractive.

BUT, if you want the answers to everything, and a hope for eternity, freedom from sin, power to face each day----The Bible has it all for you.

And it is the only thing that has the answers from the One who made you.

There is that sin above all others that seems to block even the best, the "goodest," among us. PRIDE.

It got Lucifer, and it's getting most of the human population, born in sin, born condemned already.

God, the judge, hates pride.

If you struggle with pride, and the ideas that you know more than God's Word, you have a huge problem. You have more to overcome than the vilest rapist. You think you are right, and you aren't, and you will end up with the same end as that criminal.

Because sin is sin, and God's rules are that it is forgiven only by Christ's shed blood on the cross. Jesus did it, for you.

So, I will go plant tulips. I hope I don't see them in the spring---I hope that the LORD JESUS comes to get us before then.

But we must live the appointed days.

Some Corgi Hollows Scenes

From the Ends of the Earth

From the depths of the sea,
Throughout all the ages---
Your Name be praised, LORD!

I have a rejoicing heart today. My son was deployed in Afghanistan and he is finished with that deployment and back home with his dear family in the USA.

The months of heartfelt prayers for a "hedge of protection" around him are through. I will still pray for him daily, but the risks are so much less.

He travelled back to his base, so we haven't seen him, nor will we for awhile, but knowing he's no longer on the front lines is a blessing.

May God be praised!

As I think of how He has brought Ed back from the brink of death, and on a long, three year + journey of chemotherapy ---and been faithful to all of us! ---I can only give praise to the Creator of the Universe, who cares so infinitely for each one of us.

He is a joy to serve---even to the end. Think of the beheaded Christians in the Middle East. Great is their reward.

We live for the next life. Satan has perverted that dear hope through countless other religions, but we know the truth because it is written in the Word of God.

I'm a reader. I love to read. I always peruse the Goodwill book area, second-hand stores, used book stores, home-school sales for interesting, valuable, or unusual books. I find books that I want to give to all my children. I find them for friends and other relatives.

Yesterday we stopped for a quick look. I found a classic book on edible plants from North America. Not corn or soy! I paged through it and felt instantly smarter.

I found a famous (to me) book about prayer by Evelyn Christiansen---"What Happens When Women Pray?" which is full of practical truth. I'm going to give it away.

I got a book by John Stott, famous English pastor. It's about the Bible and its context. Very interesting chapters in the beginning, complete with maps. It's a little paperback book, but full of content.

I picked up a scholarly tome about Thomas Aquinas, and I got "The Return of the Black Stallion."

All for less than $5.

John Stott was a pastor who believed the Bible, but not everything in it. He was a scholar, very eloquent. He had everything mostly right----

But I think not everything. I am leaning more and more on Scripture as I age, and its authority. If you don't have an authority in your life, are you relying on your own brain?

I saw a shock claim yesterday about Alzheimer's meds being delivered to the houses of Congress in Washington D.C. Probably fake news, right?

We're all skeptics now.

I increasingly rely more and more on Scripture, and I'm thankful for the distinguished scholars and scientists who share my views on Scripture and who see all evidence pointing toward its truth.

You need to watch "Is Genesis History?"

It's really good. But there are dozens of DVDs and books that lay out wonderful evidence for the truth of God's Word regarding the scientific record. I've been reading them for years now, and I can honestly say that I see the Bible as my only authority.

Only.

It's the most reliable authority, gift from God, in this existence.

God says that it is His Word, and if it isn't He's a big liar.

God doesn't lie.


"In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God!"

There are so many Scriptures about the WORD and its authority.

I know there are some of you out there that think I'm a kook. A crazy. A lunatic.
I believe in an ancient book with ancient laws---
That qualifies me for insanity.

But I'm not crazy. I have incredible kids, a husband who is a genius (yes, he is, MENSA could come calling here!) I have and hold two different jobs and I teach all subjects, all grade levels. I understand mental illness like many don't. I have the knowledge of how to manage it, even. I live in a Minnesota paradise and my house is clean and I cook balanced meals.

I'm not bragging. I'm proving that I'm not crazy.

It is by the GRACE OF GOD that I exist and manage this life, and I am fully aware that everything can come crashing down in a heartbeat. My trust is not in the economy, nor money, nor my employers---
My trust is certainly not in the government nor the powers that tweak the media and the Federal Reserve!

If you have false trust in any of these things you need to realign your values. NOW!

You exist by the grace of God, and He sustains you. That sickening word "sustainable" has been copped by the millennials to mean that they have some sort of control over their future.

They don't. Only God sustains.

You can be a good steward of your responsibilities----That is a command of Christ! But you have no control over anything else.

Look at Santa Rosa, CA. It disappeared with six minutes' warning.

Your life is a thread. It hangs in a cosmic balance.

You can trust one thing, and one thing alone, GOD THE CREATOR.

So I'm not a kook. I've read philosophy. I've been educated. I teach the theory of everything.

I've found the ONE THING trustworthy----

Your Creator.

Alright, People

Things are heating up.

The massacre in Las Vegas is an enigma as I write, but I can only draw "reasonable" conclusions---like every one of you.

It would be easy to cry "gun control" and many simplistic folk do. What in the world do they really mean by "gun control?"

No guns? None? No hunting rifles? No pistols?

No automatics?

No antiques?

Where are you going to start? Gun laws already exist. People find ways to get around them, and evil people will simply break the laws.

How difficult is this to understand?

Michael Moore asks us to repeal the 2nd Amendment---the right to bear arms. So, no guns.

Let the sheeple be sheep. Let the sheeple die at the hands of tyranny.....

That is what the 2nd Amendment is really about.


The liberal mind has a hard time understanding that the march toward collectivism is in full swing, and that certain people will be eliminated, like in the Soviet Union, mid 20th century.

I am beginning to think that they really would like to see some of us libertarians eliminated. Their secret hate is simmering over.

They don't like us. They really don't.

As believers in Christ Jesus we are called to LOVE our enemies. LOVE THEM. We are called to serve them. By doing so we draw them closer to truth and a saving knowledge of grace in Christ Jesus.

We are supposed to LOVE.

The core of what is happening in our world is a Satanic/Luciferian conspiracy that blinds the hearts of men into thinking they are able to overcome evil.

Human nature is evil. All humanity is condemned EXCEPT through the grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST who gives us the victory!

He gives us JOY. He gives us HOPE, He gives us PURPOSE.

The world is simple enough for a child to understand------and complex enough that rebellious minds will always come up with some excuse to not bow to the Heavenly Father.


I really have trouble listening to Alex Jones. There are some pretty crazy things out there-----talk about 9/11 conspiracies, Moon colonies, Mars colonies, Flat earth, tunnels connecting continents, Saskwatch, Nephilim, the list goes on.

Some of these things are evidential, and plausible. But who is going to sort that out?

The Deep State is one of those "crazy" ideas. The Illuminati. I know the Illuminati exists. I've encountered it on a tiny scale. I am convinced that the Deep State, the Swamp, exists too.

We see the evidence.

For me, as a pretty run-of-the-mill conservative, patriotic, military wife, the straw that broke the camel's back----for me----was reading "The Creature From Jekyll Island."

It broke a ray of skepticism into my comfortable patriotism. I guess that is when I decided to explore further, leave open the possibility of things being darker than we thought.

I still believe there are people with altruistic motives, confident in the political process, out there.

They are "good" people. They mean well. They believe they are on the right path.

I just question the deeper levels now.

Donald Trump has stirred up the hornets' nest. Fascinating. It's like watching a suspense flick for real.

I hate suspense. I'm that person who reads the end of any mystery we chose to read in book club. (I would never have read them in the first place!) I am an INFJ, (Meyers Briggs) who operates exactly like that personality type. I'm classic. (My kids are always pointing this out to me. It helps them.)

I like things to add up, I like peace, I seek the deepest level, the foundation, of philosophies. I list things.

And I'm waiting for this whole Deep State idea to flower and become obvious, to me and others who are "woke." Some talk about the Red Pill. This is getting at what happens.

Sadly, the majority of the world---Western Civilization---medicates itself with prescription drugs, alcohol, music, media, and sports to avoid the painful truth about human nature and what is going on at the darkest spiritual levels.

Yes, it's painful. It's pretty ugly, too. Poor Lady Gaga! Watch the clip about her below.  Her story is tragic, but she could overcome her despair by submitting to the LORD OF THE UNIVERSE, KING OF KINGS, Jesus Christ.

He is greater.

There are things going on, friends, that we cannot understand yet.

It can't have a simple solution (like I'd like!). It's just too complex for that. Economies are driven by these forces, wars are manufactured, media is controlled.

We know that God is in control. Things are playing out.

The New World Order is being implemented day by day.

Every thing is playing out according to plan. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled daily.

It's all happening, friends.


Wake up, repent, believe in Jesus Christ. Read your Bible.



Start at 15:30, then watch the rest...

We Are in Unprecedented Times

The nation grieves today. So many lives lost---

And we can only speculate why.

Guns? There are many gun laws in effect already. Lawbreakers still misuse them.
Taking away the self defense of a people is a principle of Communism and Fascism. When there is no opposition one is forced into the bondage of the dictator.

To oppose the Second Amendment is to embrace Marxist philosophy.

Antifa? I've heard comments about the shooter's anti-Trump views.

Radical Islam? Isis supposedly claims he converted to Islam recently.

Mental illness? His father was a certified psychopath. How did he maintain "normalcy" for so many years with no one suspecting?

How about Luciferian influences? I concede that this conspiracy of the evil one makes the most sense to me today. Check out Russ Dizdar on Google. He has a presentation about the Black Awakening. It's worth being informed about. It stems back from the mind control experiments documented after the second world war. Sounds crazy, but remember who we are up against: the spirits of darkness.

They do not have limitless power, but they do have power.

Only by the blood of Jesus Christ are we immune to the fiery darts of the wicked one.


As I write this I reflect on all the various ideas put forth today. Each one makes some sense.

But we really don't know what happened yet. Perhaps we will never know. I do know that we are in perilous times, and our faith is under full attack by the enemy.

When we come up with a spiritual reason for the debauchery in the land we are considered kooky. Leftovers from the Bronze Age. (I was basically called that today :))

Are we willing to be maligned for standing for Biblical truth?
We'd better be. It's here. We're under attack.

Nothing sharpens your defenses as an attack (if you survive!). It's time to get into the Word of God and apply it, the Sword of Truth.

Above all, love. Preach the Gospel.

Snatch ones from the fire. Jude. Read it tonight. It's the book for the times before the end times.

As in, right now.

Love,
