The after effects of Hurricane Sandy have left New York City in a horrific panic and disastrous state. There has been for its inhabitants no power, no food, no gas, no heat and no civil order for these last few days and the frustrated inhabitants of New York City are at the breaking point. Lawlessness is making it way throughout the city as a pack of wolves and looting, violence and anarchy are raising their godless head as frustrated citizens and lawless individuals react to the lack of their daily comforts. The national news outlets throughout America have been reporting on all of this commotion in New York City 24/7 making Americans fully aware of New York’s dilemma and state. Indeed this aftermath is a teachable moment for Americans, for these very things will very shortly be EXPONENTIALLY MAGNIFIED and engulf our entire world (Rev. 6-19). What then my dear friend? If such a little matter as Sandy has thrown the entire New York City region out of kilter what will be then when the Day of the Lord is brought to full throttle (Rev. 6-19). The attitude among the majority of Americans is that these things cannot and will not ever happen to us. We as American’s today are absolutely spoiled by the daily benefits and comforts that our technological age has afforded to us. From the rich to the poor, to the lazy to the vigorous all benefit from our 21 century modern luxuries and technological age and when they are removed the worst in people comes out along with the reality that we are very ill prepared for the simplest of disasters (Gal. 5:19-21).
If such a little matter as Sandy has thrown the entire New York City region out of kilter what will be then when the Day of the Lord is brought to full throttle.
There is nothing like a POWERFUL earthquake or VIOLENT storm to bring forth and reveal the heart of man (Jer.17:9, John 3:19-21, Rom. 7:18-25, Gal. 5:19-21), the reality of man’s helpless estate (Job 14:2, Psalm 144:4, Isa. 2:22, 40:17) and smash any self imposed and manufactured delusions that we as Adam’s fallen race are sufficient and lords of our own personal destiny in this lost and fallen sin ravished world (Rom.1:18-32, 5:12-21). Tribulation (aka. great pressure and squeezing) ALWAYS manifests the godless heart of man and brings out its worst in people (Gal.5:19-21). It is only in rare occasions that the heart of man (in such dire conditions) is contained and suppressed. The first word or phrase that usually comes out of the heart of the afflicted is the blasphemous use of the ETERNAL GLORIOUS NAME of the LORD of glory. Instead of looking to the Almighty for aid and deliverance, fallen man ALWAYS reverts inwardly (subjectively) and rages against the very One Who can deliver and bring aid (Jer. 3:22-25).
Such events as Hurricane Sandy are to be wake-up calls to us to show us how absolutely futile, vain and temporal we as human beings are to deal with the ravishing effects of this fallen world and to the magnificent power of nature's raging climate wars and geological movements (Psalm 144:4). These events should get us to wake up out of our delusional slumber to the REALITY that we truly are finite and EXPONENTIALLY limited as human beings to survive in this world without our ETERNAL Creator and Redeemer (John 1:1-5, Heb. 1:1-4).
Such events as Hurricane Sandy are to be wake-up calls to us to show us how absolutely futile, vain and temporal we as human beings are to deal with the ravishing effects of this fallen world and to the magnificent power of natures raging climate wars and geological movements.
My friends, magnify this event (Sandy) globally and then multiply the after effects EXPONENTIALLY and then you will just get a taste of what the Day of the Lord, the Day of Almighty God’s wrath will be like upon ALL the inhabitants of the world (Rev. 6-19). It will be events like these that will strip mankind from all of their godless delusions about time and ETERNITY, right and wrong, lawlessness and RIGHTEOUSNESS and bring them face to face with the ETERNAL REALITIES of their temporal fallen estate and ETERNAL destinies. Almighty God in His wrath will be also merciful upon mankind to get them to deal with REALITY and their absolute desperate need for His RIGHTEOUS Savior and propitiation for the transgressions of the entire world, but very few will open their eyes to ETERNITY’S reality and choose rather to perish FOREVER in their transgressions and sins (John 3:16-17, 2 Thess.2:10-12, 1 John 2:2,4:10, Rev. 9:20-21, 14:6, 16:9-11, 20:11-15). How HORRIFICALLY TRAGIC!
New York City’s Future
New York City (as all other cities) in the future will fall to FAR GREATER horrific devastation then that of Hurricane Sandy. She will fall from the godless lawlessness of its inhabitants and from the EXPONENTIAL horrific consequences of the Seal, Bowl and Vial judgments of Almighty God the Son (the Lamb) – Rev. 6-19). Her final death knell will be the last Vial judgment of Almighty God, which will be an EXPONENTIAL global earthquake that will shake the entire earth beyond all comprehension (Isa. 24, Hag. 2:6, Rev. 16:17-21). So violent is this final global earthquake that the GREAT city of Babylon and ALL of man’s metropolitan cities (including New York City ) will fall and become nothing but massive buried ruins and tsunami wastelands (Rev.16:19-20). So it will be just before Almighty God the Son’s return from HEAVEN’S GLORY, when at this time He will crush the anti Christ’s armies at Armageddon and then establish His earthly Kingdom reign FOREVERMORE in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Dan. 2:44-45, 7:13-14, Rev. 19:11-21). Amen! Amen!
So violent is this final global earthquake that the GREAT city of Babylon and ALL of man’s metropolitan cities (including New York City ) will fall and become nothing but massive buried ruins and tsunami wastelands.
My dear friend, why must any be taken to this horrific breaking point to realize the sobering REALITY of time and ETERNITY, of lawlessness and RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 3:16-17, 36, Rom. 10:2-4)? Almighty God today calls out to ALL to BELIEVE ON the Lord Jesus Christ (Almighty God’s solution and remedy for mankind’s fallen estate and transgressions against the established Laws of RIGHTEOUSNESS) and be delivered from the wrath to come (Acts 16:29-31, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 John4:10). Our sincere desire is for YOU our dear friend to personally come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and in doing so you will receive Almighty God’s pardon, ETERNAL LIFE and the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS required to enter into Almighty God’s ETERNITY (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4, Eph. 2:8-9). May it be so!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

We citizens of America are in a fight for our life as a nation. Over the last 75 years we have witnessed a subtle and dramatic takeover of our Republic, which was founded on bedrock principles rooted in the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. Social conservatism - which is much neglected today by Republicans and Democrats is derived from the natural laws and moral absolutes instilled at the dawn of creation by Almighty God (Gen. 1:31, Psalm 104:24, Prov. 3:19). Alarmingly, we are seeing conservatism being thrown violently overboard and subtly replaced with a progression of moral relativism which is rooted in lawless secular humanism. This godless ideology is based on an adherence to the unnatural laws that produce only decadence and anarchy. Our nation has fallen dramatically and exponentially in the past 50 years and it doesn't even have to take an anchor at MSNBC to comprehend this. These “fifth column secularists” are fully aware of this progression and are moving as fast as they can to transform our nation into their delusional, secular-socialist-utopian state.
Alarmingly, we are seeing conservatism being thrown violently overboard and subtly replaced with a progression of moral relativism which is rooted in secular humanism.
What is even more troubling is the trend that exists in the Conservative movement of today. Many who identify themselves as “genuine Conservatives” are in fact nothing more than mere “fiscal Conservatives.” What is most disturbing is that on the important social issues of our day, it is readily apparent that most of these hold liberal moral views and base their values on a “morally relative” position. When “push comes to shove,” they are more than willing to abandon in a heartbeat core moral absolutes in favor of sound fiscal policies.
The Two-Edged Sword of Conservatism
As a sword has two edges, so does the Conservative ideology. One edge of the blade is the fiscal (monetary) side, while the other edge is the social side, (i.e., the part which deals with moral absolutes). The TRUE CONSERVATIVE adheres to and uses both sides of this blade. Sadly though, many so-called Conservatives actually just use the fiscal edge of the blade and keep a dull, liberal (immoral) social ideology on the other edge. The majority of Independents fit this position to a tee. Many ill-informed and shallow-rooted Conservatives also practice this Independent/ Moderate philosophy and are quite deceived when it comes to who they are truly voting for. These individuals have an intellectual rationale based on their emotions and feelings without any firm adherence to concrete facts and foundational moral absolutes and truth.
These moral absolutes were instilled into Almighty God’s creation when God created the heavens and the earth. These Divine Natural Laws transcend cultural barriers and social boundaries erected by fallen man.
These Divine Natural Laws transcend cultural barriers and social boundaries erected by fallen man (Rom. 5:12-19). These instilled Natural Laws are absolute and crucial for a healthy society and social harmony in a lost and fallen world dominated by the unbridled passions of fallen men (Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 5:19-21, Eph. 2:1-2). Our Founding Fathers knew this all too well and sought to establish this nation on the bedrock of the Bible, its Judeo-Christian values, a strict adherence to natural moral laws, and a firm reliance on Divine Providence, i.e., Almighty God. The book, The 5000 Year Leap, goes into great detail of the vision of our Founders and the tremendous brilliance and insight they exercised in building and founding this nation. It is a “must read” for every American.
The Crucial Need for Social-Moral Conservatism
It has been the abandonment of the Conservative social-moral position that has destroyed our U.S. culture and society and changed - or deranged - it like unto a decadent and immoral, godless whore. Because of this violation of Almighty God’s truth and moral absolutes, our nation is oppressed by a multitude of transgressions which have put us in the cross hairs of His terrible judgment.
It has been the abandonment of Almighty God, the Bible and the Conservative social-moral position that has destroyed our U.S. culture and society and changed - or deranged - it like unto a decadent and immoral, godless whore.
Our founding Fathers were adamant in their warning to America’s posterity NOT to deviate from the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. In so doing we have reaped the whirlwind, and the vision of a great many is sadly cloudy, including many Conservatives.
Romney's fiscal ideals based on natural laws and sound economic values are not enough today to save America from economic implosion. More than any other political remedy, what is crucially needed to slow down the rot is sound adherence to moral ideals that are derived from Judeo-Christian values and absolutes. Our founding Fathers were adamant in their warning to America’s posterity NOT to deviate from the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. In so doing we have reaped the whirlwind, and the vision of a great many is sadly cloudy, including many Conservatives. So, who has all the solutions and answers that we need today and where are they to be found? Are we to get them from Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage or Glenn Beck? Are we going to get them from social liberals running for congress who mask themselves as true Conservatives because of their fiscal Conservative stance? The answer is a resounding, “NO!” We are past the point of no return here in America and no Republican win will change that. The nose of the ship is straight up and there is not much time left till it sinks to the bottom of the ocean miles below. In these last days, as optimistic though fictional solutions abound while all seems drear, may we not be deceived in following those who seem to have all of the answers.
Reality From Almighty God's Word
The Bible teaches, "Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD" (Jer. 17:5).
"Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?" (Isa. 2:22)
"Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever" (Psalm 146:3-6).
."Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought" (1 Cor. 2:6).
The solutions and expectations for our nation and world are not to be found in fallen man and his godless solutions (Romans 5:12-19). One’s hope is to ONLY be found in Almighty God and His perfect remedies for man and his ETERNAL future.
There are many false saviors and voices speaking today that offer fractured solutions and unrealistic expectations and they are especially ringing out this 2012 election year. These voices are all rooted in delusion promises that lead down the road to destruction in the coming Day of the Lord (2 Tim 3:1-7). As we are in these trying and last days - not just here in America but in the world - there is only one place to place our expectations. This place is in no other than the Savior of the World, the Lord Jesus Christ! He ALONE possesses all the remedies for man. He alone possesses all the hope for man in this dying and rotting world. May it be your sole desire in these days to place your trust surely and securely in Him (Christ) for life’s answers and ETERNITY'S righteous demands.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

To these horrific demonic oppressors the LORD JESUS CHRIST is the BOOGIE MAN to the boogie man.
There is ONLY One who will bring this demonic madman and his demonic rebellious legions to RIGHTEOUS JUSTICE and ETERNAL JUDGMENT (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 20:10). Their is ONLY One who has and will finally destroy this despotic monster and villain (Matt. 25:41, 1 John 3:8, Rev. 20:10). This One is the ETERNAL LORD of all Heaven and earth. This One is the ETERNAL CREATOR of all the heavens and earth - including Lucifer before he rebelled (Isa. 14:12-16, Ezek. 28:11-19, John 1:1-3, Rev. 1:11-18). This One is the RIGHTEOUS REDEEMER of all of Adam's fallen race (Psalm 110:1, Acts 2:32-36, Rom 5:12-21, 1 Cor. 1:29-31, Phil. 2:9-11, Rev. 5:9, 12-13; 21:22, 22:3-5). He is the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God, the God-Man, the Son of Man, the Lamb of Almighty God and the DESTROYER of Satan and his godless works of rebellion (John 1:1-3,14,29, Acts 10:38, 1 John 3:18, Rev. 5, 20:10). The LORD JESUS CHRIST alone sends horrific ETERNAL fear into the hearts of the fallen angelic world and their master. To these horrific demonic oppressors, the LORD JESUS CHRIST is the BOOGIE - MAN to the boogie man (Matt. 8:16, 28-32, Mark. 1:23-27, 5:1-14, James 2:19). These demonic oppressors know all to well that they are but moments away from their ETERNAL damnation (Matt. 8:16, 28-32, 25:41, Mark. 1:23-27, 5:1-14, James 2:19). These demonic tyrants of fallen mankind - who once stood in the presence of ALMIGHTY GOD - FULLY comprehend without any shadow of a doubt His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY and RIGHTEOUS PERSON. Even with these ETERNAL realities facing them these insane violent and lawless monsters still try to war against their Creator and seek to derail His ETERNAL program for Israel and Adams fallen race (Zech. 3:1-2, 2 Thess. 2;3-12, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev. 16:13-16).
The Savior of the world dwells in you and you have been place in Christ, who sits at the right hand of Almighty God!
For the man or women, boy or girl who has a saving relationship to Almighty God through Jesus Christ you have been delivered from the power of the boogie man of this world and have been redeemed (Acts 10:38, 2 Cor. 4:2-4, 5:17-21, Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-13, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 John 3:8). The Savior of the world dwells in you and you have been placed in Christ, who sits at the right hand of Almighty God (Ps. 110:1, John 17:15-21, Eph 2:6, Col 3:1-4, Col. 1:27). You have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus and have amazing spiritual power from that position (Eph. 1:3) and the most wonderful reality and truth of all is this; "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is HE that is in you, than he that is in the world." - 1 John 4:4).
Almighty God has done WONDERFUL things for YOU my beloved! Do not be a fool and a sloth to neglect them!
My friend in Christ, when YOU CHOOSE with all of your heart to seek Almighty God's will and way for your life you become an adversary (a satan) to the Aversary (Satan) - Rom. 8:28-39, Eph. 6:12-18! Almighty God has given you an open door to proclaim His Word in which the Gates of Hell shall NOT prevail against (Matt. 16:18, Rev. 1:18)! Yes of course there will always be opposition but whatever God wills for you for His glory it will be accomplished (John 14:13, Rom. 8:28-39, Rev. 3:8)! It is only then that we can all say in unison, to God be the Glory! Almighty God has done WONDERFUL things for YOU my beloved! Do not be a fool and a sloth to neglect them. For when we do we go right back under Satan's yoke of oppresion and self will! You have the VICTORY my beloved (1 Cor. 15:54-57, 2 Cor.2:14, Phil. 4:13, 1 John 5:4, Rev. 12:11)! No go forth and redeem the time for God's glory (Eph. 5:16-17)!!!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
"How can a nation continue to exist when immoral lawlessness abounds every where in the land of constitutional law?"
Over the last 80 years, the socialistic secularist (i.e., the Left) in America have been fighting tooth and nail to over turn, not just our Judeo/Christian heritage, but to demolish our republic form of democracy and the rule of Constitutional law. What makes our country’s founding so dramatically different from every other nation in the history of mankind – except for Israel – was our founding father’s vision and genius to establish this country, not on the anarchical “relative and pluralistic delusions of godless man”, but on the firm foundation of absolute truth and laws established at the beginning of time by mankind’s ETERNAL and omnipotent Creator (The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God - Gen 1:31, Psalm 148, Rom. 1:20, Rev. 4:11). It was the adhering by our founding fathers to the unchangeable and unmovable moral principles and absolutes of time that this nation was founded. This God fearing group of “fallen humans (Rom. 5:12-21)”, who possessed a healthy fear and reverence to Almighty God and also a healthily respect and adherence to moral absolutes were the genesis’ behind the establishment of this once great nation. It is stated quite clearly in our Declaration of Independence who and what they were placing their full reliance in.
Our founding father’s vision and genius to establish this country, not on the anarchical “relative and pluralistic delusions of godless man”, but on the firm foundation of absolute truth and laws established at the beginning of time by mankind’s ETERNAL and omnipotent Creator (The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.
Today we can - see right before our very eyes - the poisonous and lawless fruit abounding through out our entire nation. The consistent efforts made through out the last 100 years by the secular lawless progressive left have prevailed and we are now witnessing its destructive effects on our nation.
In the last 5 years – since the 2006 elections - we have seen “as a mushroom cloud on the horizon” the total manifestation of the lawless intentions and designs by the secularist progressives out right manifest themselves. America’s dramatic and exponential abandonment of constitutional law and moral absolutes is now today’s new “law” of the land. Lawlessness has now replaced constitutional law and the rule of the elite has now replaced the rule of the people. Lawlessness has now become the law of the land. There is no greater place that we can see this “lawless” spirit at work than in our current President and his lawless “democratic” party.
Obama the Lawless
Just in the last two years we have seen the Obama “regime” rejected and lawlessly over ride constitutional and moral laws on the verdicts on drilling for oil, the protection of marriage, gays in the military, immigration, state law, the banking industry, the 2nd amendment, separation of powers issues etc. President Obama sees himself “above” the law and outside of its healthy restrictions. This addiction for power and control from this “pee-wee potentate” is plain to see for all. In the name of his subtle and deceiving concerns and personal causes, he is rapidly transforming our republic democracy into a tyrannical lawless state. Just as our founding fathers sternly warned us of what would be - when morality and sound biblical absolutes and principles were out right rejected by our leaders and the people - so has it become here in America today.
President Obama see’s himself “above” the law and outside of its healthy restrictions.
"America is already far past the point of no return; fiscally, socially, morally and spiritually and no Tea Party will save her from sinking to the bottom of the sea"
Once America is removed and rendered useless on the world scene, what can ever contain and stop mankind’s ever growing spirit of lawlessness from permeating through out the entire world and enslaving the inhabitants of planet earth to the despotic fascist reign of godless and lawless men? Nothing at all, for that is exactly where we are heading as a world today; straight into the Day of the Lord and His Day of wrath upon the lawless designs and institutions of the world’s leaders and their inhabitants (Isa. 24:4-6, Mal. 4:1). – SEE Chart
All Roads Today Lead to “The” Lawless One
This masterpiece of Satan will absolutely despise ALL that is Almighty God; His ETERNAL Person, His ETERNAL sovereignty, His established ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, His OMNIPOTENT creative design, and His ordained and established laws and absolutes for time and ETERNITY (Dan. 7:25, Rev. 13: 5-6). Most of all, it will be this man’s burning passion to tyrannically oppose - lock stock and barrel during this seven year period - Almighty God’s Divine and angelic revelation, His signs and wonders, His godly messengers of the glorious gospel of Jesus Messiah and chiefly - Almighty God’s Christ “the Lamb of Almighty God” (Dan. 7: 25, 9:27, 11:36-39, Rev.17:12-14; Rev. 6-19).
"This man will be the lawless pinnacle of human depravity and will be exalted far above all the lawless ones that have ever existed before him - in the history of man - by Satan"
This seven year period will be the junction station of the last 4300 years of the godless and lawless rebellion of Noah’s descendants (Gen. 9:1-19, 10, 11). The horrific devastation and global tribulation at this time will bring to the forefront man’s godless rebellion and rejection of Almighty God’s saving grace (2 Thess. 2:10-12). There is nothing like intense tribulation, oppression, and anarchy to bring out that which is in the heart of fallen man (Gen. 6:3, 5, Jer.17:9, Matt. 15:17-20, Gal. 5:19-21). These conditions will either open the eyes of sinful man to the realities and saving grace and love of Almighty God (Rom. 7:24-25, Eph. 2:1-10), or it will harden the lawless heart of fallen man solid as a diamond (2 Thess. 2:10-12, Heb. 3:15, Rev. 9:20-21, 14:9-11, 16:9). It will be at this time that one’s personal choice will be made abundantly clear. There will be absolutely no confusion or misunderstanding about the choice that one will make at this time. One will either choose to follow Almighty God and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 5:1, 10:2-4) or one will follow the godless insanity of the fallen angel Lucifer and his delusional make believe that will lead all that follow him to ETERNAL damnation and desolation (Matt. 24:15, 25:41, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev. 14:9-11, 20:10-15).
"There will be absolutely no confusion or misunderstanding about the choice that one is to make at this time"
All that side with Lucifer (i.e., Satan) and his Anti Christ’s lawless rebellion at this time will indeed be doing so against the ETERNAL ESTABLISHED RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 14:9-11). These “hater’s of reality” will FOREVER share and align themselves with Lucifer’s godless lawless rebellion. These lovers of lawlessness will seal their fate in perdition and ETERNAL Fire (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 14:9-11, 20:10-15), for the anti Christ (the man of lawlessness) IS the abomination that will make all who follow him ETERNALLY desolate (Matt. 24:15, 25:41, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev. 14:9-11, 20:10-15).
In this lawless one’s 3 ½ year autocratic despotic totalitarian fascist global reign, he will be absolutely invincible (Dan. 11:36-39, Rev. 13). He will seek the global worship not just of himself, but for his tyrannical angelic master Lucifer, the father and progenitor of all that is lawless (Isa. 14: 12-16, Ezek 28:13-18, Dan. 11:36-39, John 8:44, 1 John 3:8, Rev. 13). Those that will worship him – at this time – will worship him in a vile state of lawlessness.
The Righteous One
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17).
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit (1 Peter 3:18).
As we see lawlessness abounding in these present days with no end in sight, may your heart be looking to the Savior of mankind.
Do you have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth as the Bible clearly teaches (John 4:24)? If not, be sure to place your trust in Him today. It is absolutely crucial for your ETERNITY. He will deliver you from ALL of your transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God and the lawlessness of your heart (Jer 17:9). May you place your trust in Him today! You will NEVER be the same!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

As hurricane Sandy is crawling along at 10 miles per hour on its way to New England, our state of Connecticut is bracing for this storm. To us up here in the north we do not get these kinds of powerful tropical storms and hurricanes. For many; panic, dread and fear of the unknown are gripping the state and New England while others maintain calm. There is not one bottle of water to be found any where along with D – batteries, generators and all the other necessities that go along with preparing for a strong tropical storm or hurricane. Our state has been intently following the tracking of this hurricane for almost 7 days now and to my wonderment, this state’s residents have fully heeded the warnings given to us by our Supreme Dictator of Connecticut and local media.
Only now would a “nut” pretend that this hurricane is not real and be ill prepared to bunker down for this coming storm.
It is not hard to see. The warning signs and the precise evidence of this coming hurricane are abundantly clear for all to see. Only now would a “nut” pretend that this hurricane is not real and be ill prepared to bunker down for this coming storm.
How true it is when the Lord Jesus Messiah rebuked the leaders of Israel and the nation for their woeful unbelief and rejection of the EXCEEDINGLY MARVELOUS WONDERS preformed by Him and His great authority as He preached the Word of Almighty God.
“He (Jesus) answered and said unto them, when it is evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.” (Matt. 16:1-3)
Is this NOT so even in our day here in America! The OVERWHELMING evidence and warning sirens of the collapse of this nation under the EXPONENTIAL weight of social decadence and fiscal debt should be enough to wake the dead but while the evidence and signs are more than abundant, America’s still loves to hope for the best all the while rejecting Almighty God’s Word and those who give warning (Isa. 6:9-11). The Bible (Almighty God’s Word) and its INFALLIBILITY are continually REJECTED by liberals and conservatives alike. Countless conservatives adhere to the social absolutes of the Bible while relativizing and rejecting the clear teachings of its message on ETERNAL salvation. For the Bible states:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Rom. 3:23)
“For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Rom. 10:2-4)
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name (the Lord Jesus Christ) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
As the WARNINGS go out INTO THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS of America and the world, do not DECEIVE YOURSELVES into thinking that Almighty God’s Day of reckoning will NEVER come. For indeed, it is at the very door! ALL signs today point to the global tribulation spoken of by the Lord Jesus almost 2000 years ago (Matt. 24). Once America falls off of the world stage, who or what will hold back the godless masses, the tyrannical despots evil desires and murderous rampage through out the world? Do not listen to me, but see for YOURSELVES what Almighty God’s Word has to say about this time.
ALL signs today point to the global tribulation spoken of by the Lord Jesus almost 2000 years ago.
As the world reads and interprets all the many different signs pertaining to the economy, the markets, weather patterns, sports teams, 2012 elections etc, etc… may it be YOUR sole priority to choose to have an ear and listen to Almighty God’s ETERNAL message and warning for YOU. The reality is that we are about to head into a time in which the words horrific, catastrophic, devastation, desolation, ravishing, violence, tribulation and turmoil take on an EXPONENTIAL meaning (Rev. 6-16)!
My friend, if you know NOT the Lord Jesus as your PERSONAL Savior, please see that you do business with Him today, for He is your ONLY means of deliverance from the RIGHTEOUS judgments of Almighty God on mankind and this world’s godless rebellion (John 3:16-17, Gal. 1:4). The warning signs and data are OVERWHELMING! You must ask yourself, “Do I have the courage to face these ETERNAL realities and deal with them as a responsible individual.” The choice is YOURS my friend! What will you choose?
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
With all the hype in the air over the Mayan 2012 dooms day calendar, Reuters today posted a global poll of 16,262 “earthly inhabitants” from many countries and asked the question, "Whether they think it will come to an end through the hands of God, or a natural disaster or a political event, whatever the reason, one in seven thinks the end of the world is coming,"
What they found was that the OVERWHELMING majority DID NOT believe that we are at the time of the end! That statistic absolutely amazes me and reveals to me how true the words of Jesus was about the Last Days (Matt. 24:33, 25:13, 1 Thess. 5:1-4, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev. 3:3, 16:15)! This poll brings to light and adds to the overwhelming validity of Holy Scripture. Jesus himself gave many great warnings to this reality of our day and stated for all, "Behold, I come as a thief in the night" (Rev. 16:15)!

People who live outside the reality of biblical truth are generally superstitious about and dreadfully fearful of the King of Fears (i.e., Death – Heb. 2:14-15). Deep in their heart of hearts the world fully KNOWS that they WILL give a full account to Almighty God in the Day of Judgment no matter what race, gender, color, people, society, culture, back ground, political or religious ideology, social status, nation and tongue they come from (Ez. 18:20, Acts. 10:34, Col. 3:25, Rev. 20:11-15). Almighty God’s word clearly testifies and states that the very imprint or “TM” of the Creator is placed in their hearts testifying to ALL that they ARE Almighty God’s creation and will give a full and final account to Him in that Day (Ezek.18:4, Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 20:11-15).
The world’s subjective global optimistic thinking, which leaves out and abandons ETERNITY’S REALITY, is that “time” will go on FOREVER and this world will never cease (2 Peter 3:2-9, Rev, 18:7). The world’s global inhabitants - because they are unregenerate, rebellious toward RIGHTEOUSNESS, spiritually dead, more than willing to live in full unbelief, dominated by a fallen nature and under the fallen spiritual despot of the world (i.e., Lucifer) are oblivious that the Day of the Lord is at hand (Rom. 1:18-32, Rom 3, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2;2-3, 6:12)! The world - in their lawless spiritually drunken estate are consciously oblivious to the reality that they are marching and heading to the final showdown with their Creator at the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm 2, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 16:13-16,17:2, 19:11-21).

My dear friends, just look outside the window from even an objective worldly perspective and what do you see? The world today is on the very brink of global disaster! With all of the technological advances of our day and of the last 100 years we have accelerated human lawlessness and depravity at an EXPONENTIAL rate, transforming the global social and cultural landscapes and climates not in centuries but in brief years! Every facet of this existence today is accelerating so rapidly that peoples, nations and tongues are being swept away and deceived before they can analyze the very world in which they live in. Global fiscal desolation is at our very door along with the destructive threats of global nuclear war. Global plagues, godlessness, crudity, violence, lawlessness, sexual addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, genocide, oppression, tyranny, individualisms’ massive global division etc… DOMINATE our fallen world much like the days of Noah (Gen. 6, Matt 24:37). These poisonous and destructive fruits are the results of the godless outworking of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and LAWLESSNESS (Gal. 5: 19-21, 6:7). Yet today the world with great zeal protects, defends, guards and will decimate any who seek to challenge their lawless deeds (John 15:18, 17:14, 1 John 3:13). This world fully embraces and condones all of these destructive actions in its never ending quest to rid the world of rightness and light in their delusional quest for “world peace” (John 3:19-21). The world’s inhabitants of today are putting all their expectations in this delusional utopian basket with no bottom in it with the goal that one day mankind will enter in to a golden age of peace and harmony (Isa. 48:22, 57:21). Oh fools! No wonder the Bible states so clearly that all are sold under sin and unbelief and they have been and are presently deceived by the god and tyrant of this world, the fallen arch angel Lucifer (i.e., Satan) Rom 3, Eph. 6:12.
With all of the technological advances of our day and of the last 100 years we have accelerated human lawlessness and depravity at an EXPONENTIAL rate, transforming the global social and cultural landscapes and climates not in centuries but in brief years!
For the 15% who DO believe that we are in the Last Days, many of these objective worldly thinkers KNOW NOT Christ, Almighty God’s saving solution for their souls, the countless passages referring to the Day of the Lord, Christ’s return to earth and reject the Bible’s Divine authority (2 Tim. 3:7). These can sense that there is great global trouble ahead but cannot and tragically refuse to truly want to know why it is coming about. It has been my own personal experience that the majority of men would rather believe the Mayan’s who were a bunch of blood thirsty, superstitious, barbaric savages who were also astrological geniuses’ than Almighty God the Creator of the GLORIOUS Heavens and earth! No matter how you cut the vegetarian pizza on this poll you will find that UNBELIEF is KING and the common denominator among the world's inhabitants in which the very thief of the night will enter in (Matt. 24:33, 25:13, 1 Thess. 5:1-4, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev. 3:3, 16:15).
We are in the Last Days my friends, believe it or not and it will come as a thief to this godless, Christ rejecting, lawless the world. It will be after the Rapture of the Church (i.e., Christ’s called out assemble) that the world will maybe start to pay attention for UNBELIEF IS UNBELIEF IS UNBELIEF, remember Pharaoh’s heart? But it will not be until the HORRIFIC and CATASTROPHIC ride of the Four Horsemen and the following GREAT earthquake and wonders in the heavens that the world will now personally know that they are truly in the GREAT and DREADFUL DAY of THE LORD (Rev. 6). The seal judgments of Almighty God and the Lamb will finally be the horrific and sober wake up call to a godless world that Almighty God will not overlook godless rebellion and the mindset of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS in His holy presence.
But it will not be until the HORRIFIC and CATASTROPHIC ride of the Four Horsemen and the following GREAT earthquake and wonders in the heavens that the world will now personally know that they are truly in the GREAT and DREADFUL DAY of THE LORD!
Even to the end of this horrific seven year period called “the Day of the Lord or the 7 year tribulation” mankind will continue to war against Almighty God and not heed His warnings (2 Thess. 2: 8-12, Rev. 9:20-21, 16:21). They will choose to remain willfully ignorant and rebellious all the way to Armageddon. They in their subjective rage will be clueless that Christ will return from Heaven’s glory (Zech. 14:1-4, Rev. 19:11-21). Christ’s second coming to earth to destroy the remaining armies of the anti Christ and establish His EVERLASTING reign of RIGHTEOUSNESS will come as a thief in the night to a godless and rebellious world and will also be so even unto those Jews and gentiles who have come to a saving knowledge of the Lamb (Matt. 25:31-46, Rev. 7:13-17). So EXPONENTIALLY TURBULENT, so EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC will this time be that all SENSE of time will be absorbed into the vacuum of this CATASTROPHIC period. The simple counting of the seven years from the signing of the covenant to the return of Christ from Heaven’s glory will be lost in a world EXPONENTIALLY spiraling out of control (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev. 6-19). The Bible is very clear on this REALITY that Christ’s return to earth WILL be as a THIEF IN THE NIGHT (Rev. 16:15)!
So EXPONENTIALLY TURBULENT, so EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC will this time be that all SENSE of time will be absorbed into the vacuum of this CATASTROPHIC period.
It is not God’s Son's desire that He should come as a thief in the night but that all would hear His voice today and believe (John 3:16-17)! His Word today is everywhere. God has made it plentiful! It is in every tongue and language and the Internet has provided global access to the simple message of salvation! My friend, EVERYONE is without excuse (Acts 17:30-31, Rom 1:18-20). Before the arrival of the dreadful Day of the Lord Almighty God has given abundant, ample warning to ALL to be saved and be delivered, not just from the coming Day of the Lord, but from ETERNAL damnation (John 3:36, Rev. 20:11-15). Beloved, NOW is the time, NOW is the day of salvation. Will you hear the Holy Spirit and the bride’s voice (Rev. 22:17)? May it be so my dear friend! Place your trust in Jesus Christ, who is your Lamb and propitiation for your transgressions TO ANSWER Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 10:4, 1 John 2:2).
The Kingdom of God is at hand!!
The Catastrophic Events That Will Lead Up To The Anti-Christ's 666 Global State
What must I do to be saved?
Sunday, October 28, 2012
The practice (application) of Absolute Truth and Reality are essential for enjoying true freedom. Non-absolutes and partial realities bring but little satisfaction, which is accompanied with great burdens and bondage like battleship chains. Self-willed pride - along with self-willed rejection of Absolutes - always brings about tyranny and oppression in one's life. God sent His Son to awaken us to the absolute realities of time and eternity, and to deliver us from the bondage of self-willed decadence and unhappiness.
The Greek word “know” in this passage means “the possession of knowledge and wisdom that only comes through personal application or experience.”
Having just a theoretical understanding or “head knowledge” of a particular subject is surely limited, but the possession of wisdom and true discernment comes only through the application of knowledge in our lives.
"Absolute truth and reality are essential for enjoying true freedom"
For example, take two people in different situations who are otherwise equal: one an experienced private serving in the military and the other a cadet who has just graduated from West Point. By virtue of his actual experience, the private is in a practical sense wiser than the military cadet from West Point who has only studied the technical aspects of warfare.
The officer who has never been exercised in actual warfare or who has never applied his learning on the battlefield has no comprehension of the realities and first-hand experiences of combat. He has “zero experience" of functioning under hostile conditions and seeing the carnage of the battlefield. He is not battle-tested. He possesses no experience of being focused and steady under intense battlefield conditions. Although this officer may even have a good academic understanding (i.e., “head knowledge”) about war and what it entails, he has NEVER personally experienced war himself.
The private, on the other hand, does have actual combat experience and an appreciable comprehension of the battlefield. He has been exercised many times, and he has experienced first-hand the realities and horrors of war. He has applied his training in combat, which has given him a wisdom and knowledge that cannot be learned in a military academy or even in boot camp.
So it is for the child of Almighty God and the application of His Word. God expects His children (John 1:12) to apply His unchangeable and unfailing Word in their lives, and to experience (know) its benefits and realities. It is only through the application of God’s Word that we gain wisdom and knowledge that cannot be obtained by reading studies written by others such “Days of Praise” daily devotionals. The spiritual wisdom and knowledge that Paul prayed for the Colossians could only be obtained through the working of God and personal application of God’s Word in their lives (Col. 1:3-12). There are no shortcuts or spiritual "hocus-pocus” that can be substituted for these. Our Heavenly Father does not desire His children to live off the life experiences of others, but that we ourselves should taste and see that the Lord is good! (Psalms 34:8; 1 Peter 2:3)
"The truth then possesses us and we are able to speak with authority, passion, boldness, confidence and to give an answer to all who would ask us of the hope that is in us!"
When we apply (know) the truth and reality of God in the “ups and downs” of our lives, and follow the remedies and formulas found in His Word, we enter into a realm of learning that transcends this earth. We enter into the spiritual realm of “higher education.” This "higher education" not only expands our heavenly vision and understanding, but it produces fruit (results) that are absolutely liberating and transforming to the child of Almighty God. The application of God's Absolute Truth sets us free indeed! Free from all worries, cares, fears, doubts, sorrows, earthly boundaries and temporality (time-boundedness), and - most of all - free from the King of all Fears, Death itself (Heb 2:14, 15). Standing by faith in full assurance of hope, these slave-masters no longer have the enslaving tyranny they once possessed over us. The truth then possesses us and we are able to speak with authority, passion, boldness, confidence and to give an answer to all who would ask us of the hope that is in us! (1 Peter 3:15). The Truth (reality) has truly made us free, liberating us to act because of a liberating inward experience!
Our Heavenly Father would have us all to be liberated here in time and to enjoy the wondrous riches that are only found in Christ Jesus His Son (John 8:36). May it be our sole desire today - and the desire of our soul - to have the experiential knowing of the eternal truths of God and to possess this liberating freedom.
Have faith in Almighty God! Be strong and of good courage! Endure hardness (hardship) as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 2:3). In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thess. 5:18). Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say rejoice (Philip. 4:4)! May it be so for you, dear reader! You will never be the same!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
