That's confusing to the world.
Yes, there are trends you can see and put your finger on. Believers are famously pro-life----IN ALL ITS FORMS!
God loves and created life. Therefore we must also love and preserve it.
God is just, so we believers need to love justice.
God is merciful! WE LOVE MERCY!
This is the heart of Christianity, following Jesus.
I liked something Chris Pinto said at the Red River Bible and Prophecy Conference this past weekend.
"If saved, always saved."
Remember that, and check out your spiritual profile. Are you in repentance? Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? Are you showing the fruits of the Spirit?
Are YOU LIVING A LIFE THAT IS RIGHT BEFORE GOD, ACCORDING TO HIS FOREVER STANDARDS?
Your salvation is in Christ alone, not of (any) works, so no one can boast! But is your life characterized by God's power and love for HIM?
I ask myself this question practically daily. We need to. Where is sin in your life? Oh my. Personal questions!
If you are truly saved you will be an outlier, someone who doesn't conform. You will be something to behold, a flame that moths find irresistable....
I know there are several of my readers who patently disagree with my views. They keep reading my stuff though, like moths to the flame. It's irresistable to them because their spirit recognizes truth.
If only they would give in to the Holy Spirit's promptings and place their faith in Christ alone. What a true and joyful transformation they would find!
But that's just too weird....! Corgi is extreme. Corgi is a nut case....
Actually, no, I'm not. I'm as sane (or more so) than the average Joe. I've been evaluated by psychiatrists. Seriously. I'm sane, and I'm loving God and everyone created in His image, including the inmates at the county jail.
I'm someone God has redeemed and I'm called to share that truth until my last breath. God help me.
Here are some things I took away from the weekend's event.
(Not all the speakers were in agreement with each other theologically, so I love the credibility that adds to the whole thing. One must be discerning!) Still there were things of truth in each presentation.
Jay Seegert is a creationist. I love to listen to his fact-filled presentations. I became a full-fledged young earth creationist about age 40. I read. The stuff I was reading at that time was overwhelmingly convincing that God actually didn't lie about creation and how He did it in Genesis. The evidence all over the earth indicates a global flood, catastophic event, that completely reset the progress of humanity and the course of planet earth.
I read all about Carbon 14 dating. You should too.
I read all about genetics and microbiology. You should too. The evidence for an author/designer is undeniable, and if Scientists are honest to themselves they admit it. Thousands and thousands of PHD's admit that there is a Designer.
I studied probability. This, more than anything else, seems to be the number one thing that convinced me of God's involvement-----critical----in creation. The statistics and probabilities that occur in the creation are vast beyond measure. Look into it. Start with "Privileged Planet."
Jay gave a really good talk about a symposium at Cornell University about genetic mutation. I had heard some of this material before, but he explained epigenetics in a way I could finally understand. You need to try to understand it too. So amazing! God is amazing!
Mike Hoggard is a preacher with a personality that grows on you. I couldn't stand him the first time I heard him several years ago. I don't agree with him on several points, but his heart is so right and sweet, and he is fascinated by typology in Scripture, and so am I. He and I disagree about when the Rapture is occurring (I am pre-Trib) but we can still be siblings in Christ.
He talked about his views on the Rapture, and he certainly made his points. Here we can take ALL of Scripture and find truths that suggest a framework or a timeline, but ultimately we will have to wait and see what plays out yet. The truth is that we WILL be caught up. There WILL be a Great Tribulation. We all WILL suffer persecution and tribulations. There WILL be a second coming of Christ on the Earth.
We agree, mostly!
Chris Pinto is a researcher par excellence. I can't believe his level of knowledge and pernicious inquiry. He's the guy that ferreted out the builder/financer of the Georgia Guidestones. This is remarkable in and of itself.
His research led him to all the links between Islam and Adolph Hitler. He presented the facts of the Moslem slave trade in Africa and Europe. He showed the effects of Colonialism and how it changed the world. He talked about guns and Bibles.
His presentation was incredibly prescient.
Paul MaGuire is the author (recently) of "The Babylon Code," and "Trumpocalypse." I recommend.
Paul is an entertaining speaker. He's VERY edgy. He will blow your mind at first, until you start to fathom the breadth of Lucifer's plans to fight God.
Really, it all makes complete sense, but you have to get out of the traditional storylines that we've all been fed for the past century. You have to know and understand the "players" and the "sheeple."
As you uncover the Globalist Agenda and its Luciferian Roots your eyes will be shocked open. It's not for the faint of heart, but we all point back to the superior intelligence of the Archenemy, Lucifer.
And He is defeated. Too many people live life in complete ignorance of his overarching earthly authority and devices.
He didn't stay a quaint spirit described in the Bible. He's a person with certain power and influence. To be aware of his shenanigans is a responsibility of the 21st Century believer. You have to know your enemy to wage war against him. That is a fact.
Most of us hate war and warfare, but that doesn't matter in reality. We will be overrun if we don't take care. War is a reality.
Spiritual War is even more a reality.
Be armed (The Bible is the SWORD!) Be sober, be alert. The Bible gives us our marching orders.
And always remember that the victory has already been decided, it stands, outside of the creation of time and space.
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people.
There. I shared some of the truths of the conference. I think you can buy the dvds of the whole thing at the conference website, www.titus213hope.com
I love going to the conference because my life is so full of distractions I can actually get away and take it all in.
Distractions at Corgi Hollows? Here's a little list for this week----
Ed's upcoming surgery (knee replacement in June ---the second knee, now)
Ed's graduation from school. He's finishing at North Hennepin Community College
Recovering from our Grand Canyon mini-vacation (why do you have to recover from vacation, anyway?)
Working at the Deli
Substitute teaching. I had a week off in Arizona and Texas, but went right back into it.
My 101 year old aunt died and we are planning a trip out of state for the funeral.
Cheri has begun her track season. Daily practices, meets start this Saturday. She's got her Driver's permit now, so we are attempting to get her to drive back and forth to Track. This is challenging.
Did I mention that I've helped five humans learn to drive? That is four too many.
I HATE IT. I think more than anything else. Really. I speak in all sorts of tongues everytime I'm in the passenger seat and my child is driving. I think I'm speaking Japanese, but I wouldn't know. It's stark fear.
The septic system problem continues. We are still in the throes of winter although the calendar says it's supposed to turn Spring sometime today.
Corgi Puppy antics. A day doesn't go by without her destroying someone's earbuds, smart watch, shoes. I took her on a 3 mile walk yesterday, and my husband took her around the hayfield in what's left of the snow. She could have gone another ten miles afterward. Boundless energy. Thank the Lord she's cute, or the household would revolt completely.
Puppies grow! (Thankfully!)
Spring Cleaning next week. I'm actually looking forward to washing windows (weather permitting!) and scrubbing walls! I continue the massive "culling" that commenced three years ago when we moved out to the country. Throw, throw, throw. Someday we'll fit nicely (albeit snugly) into this house with no storage!
I'm reading....all about Mary, Queen of Scots, books by Paul MaGuire, literature that I've yet to get to.
Jail: I missed my Sunday at the jail, but that is such a delight to be a part of. Several gals were getting their sentences recently, and we need to lift them up in prayer. That means they are moving on to prison. I won't see them again, but a couple of them really wanted to keep in touch. There are strict rules about this. For now, pray with me for them to stay in Christ.
Choirs: My husband continues in the Northern Lights Chorale. Those concerts are upcoming. We both have joined the Minnetonka Choral Society this spring. The upcoming concert, April 15, in Excelsior, MN is going to be a tribute to Martin Luther King Junior. I am not a fan of MLK, but this concert is deeply touching. I just love the main work that we're doing. Talk to me about tickets if you have that afternoon free.
Margaret's stuff---The life of a young and independent woman! It's always interesting.
My older three children have their own lives and I'm fascinated by them all. I can give God glory and honor and praise that they are seeking His face. What a blessing. May God continue to work in their lives.
So, Corgi Hollows is humming along. Happy Spring!

We are wracked with guilt. We bear burdens that we cannot handle. We beat ourselves up. We rage against things we cannot control. This is a type of slavery.
Feminism has further enslaved women by removing the duties of men that were placed there by God to protect women.
We're so used to slavery that we hardly even notice it. We're slaves to our mortgages, car payments, credit card bills.
We're slaves to our demanding children (I have extraordinary kids, and of course, I love to meet their demands! But the fact remains, that we are responsible for them). We're slaves to our families in general.
We're slaves to our jobs, our commitments, and a host of other obligations.
When God created mankind he made us free and having dominion over the earth. That's not slavery.
He made us to have relationship with and appreciate Him.
Adam and Eve blew it, but God thankfully restored that relationship through Jesus Christ.
Christianity is the one religion that looks down on slavery. It is because of the nature of that relationship with God Himself that the believer receives freedom in Christ.
The founding fathers of the United States of America had a thing about kings. They rightfully acknowledged God as King, and God alone. They understood the nature of God's rule, and the freedom therein.
This is the beauty of Christianity.
But alas, the world is full of tyrants and sin. Satan is always trying to enslave those made in God's image.
The globalists of the United Nations and the Deep State behind the modern U.S. Government have their sights set on enslaving the citizens of the world in a massive enslavement.
It's true. There are about 1% of the world's populations that control 99% of the world's wealth.
It's true. Wake up, sheeple. Kings still rule us, just in different ways.
Thank God we have Him, our true King, whose Kingdom is not of THIS world, but the unseen. Thank God that He has overcome this world! Thank God that He reigns and lives and helps and loves. Thank Him that he answers our prayers and knows the end from the beginning.
This is all that is + to knowing Christ.
Remember, there is little we can do to defeat the enemy. He's already defeated in Christ Jesus. WE need to claim that victory, trust in our savior, and follow our king.
That is the path to happiness, truth, and freedom.
Read your Bible today. You will find that everlasting peace with an open heart and repentant soul. Don't wait. Treasures await you of a spiritual nature. Your spirit will be born again, and you will understand God's perfect plan.
Get out of the swamp of slavery.

The entire week in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona was a welcome respite after a long winter. Ed got to see the Grand Canyon. We sat in the sun by my cousin's pool. We heard the Wurlitzer organ at "Organ Stop Pizza" in Mesa, AZ. We drove almost 1,400 miles across the American Southwest. Cactus, mountains, vistas.
It was perfect.
Seeing our family on the trip made it wonderful, too.
I need to take a time for recovery---always after a major trip, and then get back on track here at home.
One really special moment for me was at the Grand Canyon. I've been to the Canyon four times. I've read multiple books about the canyon. Each time I've been there I've seen a variation of views and sights. I'd always wanted to see the head of Bright Angel Trail, but it hadn't worked out before. This time we walked toward it and I was going to take a photo of the signs and the opening of the path into the canyon----out stepped a mule pack train from the canyon just as I snapped my shot! What a coincidence, and a fun experience! The sweating mules were loaded with packs and two rangers. They had just completed their upward trip, from the bottom of the canyon. There is something so remarkable about these creatures! Everything went like clockwork, and I can praise the LORD for that.
We had wonderful, lovely time.
I feel ready to get my teacher outfits back on and tackle the rest of the school year. The nice thing is that my school district still has Spring Break coming up, and I'll have a week to Spring Clean!
I woke up today with a bad headache, carry-over from yesterday, so the sub couldn't sub this morning. I love having an unexpected free day, but the headache was awful. Feeling better now, and I'm off to the deli for the evening.
This weekend is the Red River Bible and Prophecy Conference in Moorhead, MN. I'm planning on attending. I like to have no distractions at these conferences, so I try to actually go whenever possible. This one is going to be live-streamed on the Internet. Go to www.titus213hope.com for the stream this Friday, March 16. It's Saturday and Sunday too. People from all over the world tune in.
A few years ago Rick Warren mocked Bible Prophecy and its significance. Apparently he's changed his tune since then. World Net Daily published some of his recent quotes about Bible Prophecy and its SIGNIFICANCE! I don't agree with Rick Warren theologically (no surprise here) but at least he's seeing the light concerning Bible prophecy.
I have always said that knowing and watching for prophecied events to come to fruition is one of the most life-giving, faith sustaining things anyone can do. Those of us who follow prophecy are tuned into Scripture AND the Holy Spirit, plus the events of the ages.
It's win, win, win. Get on the train. You can't miss out!
Last evening at our Prophecy Study we discussed different preachers we all listen to and gain insight from. There are many!
Now that I'm a working gal I can't listen to as many as I used to. Sad face.
I do like JD Farag. I like Gary Stearman. LA Marzulli is one of my favorites. Every Saturday I try to listen to Jan Markell. Sometimes I'm awake in time for David Wheaton. Our own pastor, John Cheek, at Grace Community Fellowship is always worth listening to. He's preaching in Romans right now. He usually spends at least a year in a book from Scripture. Lots of insights.
My friend never misses Jack Hibbs from California. Bill Salus is always interesting. Alan Horvath and Andy, the Humble Horse are two guys in love with Jesus who are watchmen. I always get a kick from them.
This weekend we'll listen to Paul MaGuire, Jay Seegert, Christian Pinto, and Mike Hoggard.
Find your own favorites, keep up on stuff. I just mentioned a few watchmen. There are many worth hearing. You may not agree with everything they say, but you certainly gain insight. Put it together for yourself.
We are going through Zola Levitt's "Thy Kingdom Come" series on Sunday evenings and even though Zola has been gone 10 years or so, his insights are completely and amazingly current.
Don't mock prophecy watchers. They are usually ahead of the game when it come to world events. There is such a lack of fear for those of us who know what is to come. When something occurs it's always in light of unfolding events. I cannot fathom any other way to approach life. It's good to know what's happening, and what's to come.
Ed is on me to change my blog format. Somethings change on their own, and this is the day to experiment. We'll see what comes of that.
There are enough unexpecteds in each mundane day. It's comforting knowing the big stuff.
We all know you shouldn't sweat the small stuff!
What a great way to face life.

Are you feeling a well of dislike, anger, frustration----hatred----in your soul?
Do you react to someone's opinion that differs from yours?
Your emotions are telling something about you, and how you are trusting the Lord for all things.
I think all of us legitimately can hate what God hates. You need to be very familiar with Scripture to understand what He hates.
He hates evil. He hates specific things, like dishonest measures, divorce, lying tongues...
I've written quite a bit about the seven deadly sins. Medieval Christians analyzed these seven things and philosophized about them for centuries. They do seem to be the root of evil, and I know their significance.
Anger and hatred go together. Anger toward any fellow believer, or a believer that is disillusioned with an issue, is wrong.
Righteous anger is something Christ displayed, and the wrath of God is not even in our paradigm, but for us humankind we must see sin as sin, and anger can easily lead to sin.
Are you angry at people with guns? Are you angry at people with mental illness who are on drugs? Are you angry at abortionists? Are you angry at anti-abortionists?
Pick your cause. Pick your fight. Anger is going to destroy you.
I've thought a lot about mental illness over the last four years. I truly believe that the ONLY way to handle it is in Christ.
You can drug a person into submission and complacence, but to truly manage illnesses of the brain you NEED CHRIST.
Depression is managed by the spirit. It's helped by meds, but it's conquered by Christ. You may even get to the point of miraculous healing.
This applies to each and every mental illness. Some can be healed, some helped.
I think of mental illness in the same vein as any other disability. Some are born with disability, some become disabled through circumstances.
God can do anything. He can restore limbs. He's able, but He chooses to do it seldom. I've read reports of his restoring such things as legs and arms, but I'm not going to dispute them.
I am NOT a rationalist. I'm a dimensionalist. I believe in the supernatural. I've seen things that are unexplained. I've experienced supernatural events in my own life. I know Christ's presence, and I know His Truth.
I will never argue with God's power.
I may test the spirits. I may see Satan masking as God, and wonder. God doesn't contradict Himself. He is good, and He is unchanging. His creation is humming along in an amazing fashion.
Satan does his bit, fulfills his purpose, and rebels against his Maker. The earth is completely in his camp, except for followers of Christ.
It's what the Bible teaches.
And I see the power of God's Truth. I see the power to manage life, to survive, to live in a fallen world through Christ's strength and promise.
I've seen it. Ask me. I'll tell you.
As the children of this age seek to cope with genetic break-down, faulty vaccines, mental illness, autism, ADHD, cancers, poor choices, addictions, crime, sin....
....I'll lead you to the answer of coping until we see His face.
It has worked for me, and it will work for you.
Of course he had his faults, mistakes, problems, bad associations.
I think, like Anne Graham Lotz, that his passing is also significant. We've come to an end of an era with his death. Luis Palau is also dying of cancer right now, and his ministry touched the Latin American world as Billy's touched ours. We are seeing change.
The shootings in Florida and Michigan have sparked and hardened our culture to more debate about rights and privileges, speech and mental illness.
I always state what everyone already knows, but I still think it bears defining. We are seeing our world creep toward Satan's ultimate earthy global kingdom.
There's an intriguing picture that emerges in the Book of Revelation. It's referred to as "Mystery Babylon" and it is a city that rules the rest of the world economically, politically, and in every other way. It is described particularly in chapter 13, where the leader of this order, the Beast, compels everyone on earth to worship him. No one will be able to buy or sell without his mark on hand or forehead.
Satan knows and understands all of this imagery, and he hates it. He propagates the idea that Revelation is hard to understand, should be interpreted heavily, and even that it is myth.
But it is happening. It's even happening now.
The most compelling evidence is the fruition of things predicted 2,000 years ago-----multiple references.
To me they are the most convincing testimony of the truth of God's Word.
The Bible is about a third prophecy. Most of the prophecies have been fulfilled. Critics always assert that those prophecies were written after the fact, but this cannot be true. It's just another tactic of Satan to deceive people.
There are still multiple prophecies to come about, and God's prophecies ALWAYS happen. They always come to fruition. God makes them happen.
The things predicted in Revelation aren't pretty, and I, for one, DON'T WANT TO BE AROUND when they come to pass. Thankfully I'd be one to be shot or beheaded right away.
BUT the Rapture will happen before that, as this is our HOPE. The hope given in Thessalonians. The church, followers of Jesus Christ, is addressed in the first chapters of Revelation. There are warnings about becoming cool toward believers and God. The Lord is pleading with his bride to stay close to Him as the world marches toward Armageddon.
Then the church isn't a factor for the rest of the book. It's all about bowls and seals, wrath and monsters. War, disease, pestilence, earthquakes, destruction, blood and death fill the final chapters of Revelation. The wrath of God descends on the earth, and the damned are damned.
It's all happening. It will come to pass. Why do I know this?
I'm seeing everything aligning in preparation for these events.
We have nuclear bombs. We have global technology. We have a cashless society in place. We have microchip technology. We have increased frequency of earthquakes. We have diseases and bugs that still menace the world's population despite medical research. We have animal extinction. We have Fukushima, a destroyed nuclear power plant that pours radioactive sea water into the Pacific Ocean. Just Google "Fukushima Radiation Map" on your device. Think about what the Bible predicts about the oceans-----a third of the seas will die.
For me, Israel and its existence is the number one reason to believe in Bible prophecy.
God hardened Pharaoh's heart in the days of Moses. He also turned Balfour, Rothschilds, and several successive Presidents of the USA to begin a little modern nation called Israel.
These people weren't Bible believers!
God used them to bring about HIS plans for the future. God worked out his own prophecies concerning Israel.
Scripture is being fulfilled (Zechariah!) as millions of Jews return to Israel for the last days. These last days.
Israel is 70 years old this spring. Many prophecy watchers are wondering "which generation will not pass away before these things come into fruition."
WE DON'T KNOW, but we are WATCHING!
And it's happening. It's happening right now.
Soon, I believe, those who have "oil in their lamps," the Holy Spirit, will be caught up to meet the LORD in the air.
There is imagery in traditional Jewish weddings that there is a week-long bridal feast. That is where we watchers get the idea that we are going to celebrate a week with our shepherd and LORD/ Bridegroom Jesus Christ, Messiah. I love the prophecy in Daniel 12 which assures those who love Him that we will be hidden away for a while---a week.
Jump to Revelation 19:11-16. Here we see a Rider, Jesus, the King, returning to earth with US! The Armies of heaven, on white horses.
This is a glorious passage, full of great hope, for we see evil defeated here on earth, and the end of suffering during Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation.
Those left behind who choose to not take the mark of the Beast AND survive the wrath of God will be waiting for that Glorious Appearance of Jesus and His Bride.
The church has so much to look forward to. The earth doesn't.
Bible prophecy is vital to us as we face these days of rancorous debate. We see the march toward the Beast's kingdom plainly. We see the rights and beliefs of believers under attack DAILY in the mainstream media, social media, the press.
I do read the news.
Some of it's fake, but not all of it.
WE need to be on guard.
Read your Bible every day. Let the LORD speak to you through His Word. Watch for the signs. Do not take the Mark of the Beast.
The Bible plainly states that those with the mark will not be saved.
Universalists love to explain away the doctrine of Hell. Rob Bell is a prime example here. IF you believe the Bible (and it is true) you must reckon with Hell and its concept.
Believe it or not, Hell is real.
Avoid it! Accept Jesus Christ as your savior today. Become a CHRISTIAN BELIEVER.
Jesus conquered eternal death, hell, by dying on the cross.
Ask Him to forgive you and save you NOW. Time is so short.
Rhode Island’s Democratic Governor signed an executive order allowing the federal government to seize firearms from the homes of individuals they deem are dangerous.
Gina Raimondo’s overreaching order allows law enforcement officers to take guns away from those in “red flag” cases.

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV
If you aren't ready for the Rapture you aren't ready!
The Lord has promised us that He is coming for His church.
Bible prophecy is playing out before our eyes.
Israel is a country.
God is working in Israel.
The rise of APOSTASY and "Christian Palestinianism" is taking over the western world.
People no longer believe in Scripture, no longer read it, no longer understand.
The new world order is poised to take over.
The Antichrist is longed for.
Israel is the bride of YHWH.
The Church is the bride of Christ.
There is a distinction between the wrath of God and the persecution of the church.
Signs of Christ's coming are happening in increasing frequency: earthquakes, volcanoes, disease, death, evil, violence,
We are all ready for the mark of the beast.
The World economy is ready for cashlessness.
The early Church was listening for the trumpet. We are too. Jesus comes for us soon!
Wake up and fill your lamps!
It cannot be long now.
And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
What does Everlasting mean? Everlasting.
Israel has an everlasting covenant with God, and it's playing out before our eyes.
Prepare for the Rapture!
