The Rapture - We Shall Be Changed!!!

Beloved; in an ever growing hopless world; we who know Jesus have the ETERNAL BLESSED HOPE to burn in our hearts in such days for ALL to see! The "Blessed Hope - Titus 2:11-13" or the Rapture of the Church is the great anticipation of those children of God who are looking for their Savior's soon coming for us in the air. For many centuries - from the early church until now - the saints of the Church Age - have been greatly anticipating their Savior's return and as the days draw closer the signs are everywhere that it could be at any moment!

No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS!
How many believers today actually comprehend what will truly happen to us in that moment when the Last Trump sounds?  No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS (1 John 3:1-3)! Oh my dear friends, that is the TRUE hope of every blood bought believer who is seeking their Savior's appearance! To be like Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS! The ETERNAL SON OF GOD in us; our ETERNAL HOPE of ETERNAL GLORY (Col. 1:27)!

No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS!

My dear friends, we (as humans) are like a broken egg. When an egg is smashed and broken, who can put it perfectly back together again? In the beginning God created Adam perfect (like a whole, unbroken egg), but the transgression of our father Adam against the ETERNAL spiritual laws (absolutes) and physical natural laws of time caused him to die – both spiritually and physically (Gen. 3; 2:16-17; Rom. 5:12-19). Thus, because of Adam’s transgression all who are born in Adam (i.e., the entire human race) are born marred and  “broken” from Almighty God's original design (Gen. 1:31)

It is only in Jesus Messiah (the Savior of the world) that is found the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s HOLY and PERFECT Heaven!

It is only in Jesus Messiah (the Savior of the world) that is found the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s HOLY and PERFECT Heaven (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). Almighty God has provided a PERFECT  solution to make atonement for the sins of the world and all who put their trust in Him will be saved from the wrath which is to come on ALL ungodliness (progressive- conservatism) (Matt. 1:20-21, Luke 1:30-35, John 1:14, Heb. 10:5, 1 Peter 1:19).

We who know Him will be caught up in the air to meet Him and we all shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and FOREVER will we be with the Savior!
When we receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior by faith we receive the forgiveness and pardon of our transgressions, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God's Savior, and ETERNAL LIFE (Isa. 1:18, John 3:16-17, 36, 1 Cor. 1:30, Col. 1:13-14)! Jesus came into the world to SAVE and REDEEM fallen man so that they may FOREVER live in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS with Almighty God the Father (Luke 9:56, John 10:10, Rom. 5:12-21, 1 Tim. 1:15, Rev. 21-22:1-5). My dear friends, I do not know anything more wonderful than that! And we who know Him (John 1:10, Acts 4:12) will be caught up in the air to meet Him and we all shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and FOREVER will we be with the Savior!

Jesus came into the world to SAVE and REDEEM fallen man so that they may FOREVER live in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS with Almighty God the Father!

This vile fallen body which is marred and ruined (Rom. 7:7-25) to PERFECTLY honor Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS demands will be changed to a RIGHTEOUS body as His (1 Cor. 15:51-58, Phil. 3:21, 1 John 3:1-3)! This may be the year the Trump will blow and what encouragement this is to redeem the time for Almighty God's glory (Eph. 5:16-17)! MARANATHA!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

They Sold Their Souls to Rock and Roll

My whole life prior to 1992 (Eph. 2:2-3) was given solely over wholly to the rock music industry. From playing the music to that of absolutely following all aspects of the industry and culture as some of you who knew me well know. It was my identity in many ways and I sought to live it out in my unregenerate mind and blindness (Prov. 16:25, Eph. 2:1-3). As Almighty God began to get a hold of me, He started to redirect me by His Word and I then began to see the many faceted evils and vices of the whole music culture and life style.

I remember saying to myself - in the last days that I played in my band "Silent Desire" (1986-1992), What are you doing? Listen to the lyrics of the songs that you play. What are they saying? Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about. I knew I had to leave it and I knew that Almighty God could not be honored in any way or blessed by it in my life by practicing such godlessness.

Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about.

Up to this point in my young age I had lived a full life. After three years of challenging and wrestling with Almighty God and His Word; and trying to justify everything in my manner of living, at the age of twenty four I finally surrendered to the Lord and began to follow Jesus as my Lord and Savior (John 3:16.17). My final conclusion at that time was, Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong. His grace and mercy showed and taught me how wrong I was and that God's long suffering to me lead me to repentance and ETERNAL life (2 Peter 3:9)! That was in the fall of October of 1992. Since then I have been truly blessed by Almighty God. He has blessed me and has filled my soul with His Wonderful ETERNAL Person and with His plan and future for my life. The music and all of its party lifestyle could never fill the ETERNAL void that possessed me. Only Almighty God can satisfy the famished soul of man (John 6).

In the end, I knew I would have to give an account to Almighty God and I would be doomed if I continued in my rebellion and sin against Him (Heb 9:27).

My final conclusion at that time was Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong.

Before you label me a square or a nut, I would like to challenge you to objectively watch this brief series of documentaries on the music industry and its culture. On this web site you will see for yourself that there is something more sinister behind the whole godless music industry and life style then meets the eye (Eph 6:12). In the end, ask yourself this simple question. Is this what you want to truly serve?

Be brave, be objective and have courage to face the realities at hand. Then you will see what it is all about.

The Lord Jesus stated: You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).

And if the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

Put your faith and trust in Almighty God! He alone can satisfy. He alone can deliver! Put your trust in Him today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


The One I though I Knew - The other side of my brief testimony.


The One I Thought I Knew

Many dear, professing “Christians” today, who are dear and sincere in their Christian traditions and personal beliefs, believe in a DIFFERENT Christ (i.e., they have “their own” Jesus). Therefore they - either knowingly or unknowingly - have rejected the CHRIST of the Holy Scriptures. I personally know how this works for I once had “my own” Jesus.

For years I was a practicing Roman Catholic. From the womb, I was taught and raised in the traditions of the Catholic faith (ideology), and in true sincerity, I went to church every week, prayed every night, and practiced the Golden rule, but I lived contrary to the moral teachings given by God in His Word. It wasn’t until just before my twenty-first birthday that someone shared with me from God’s Word the True Gospel (good news) and the True Christ of the Holy Scriptures. At that time it was very hard for me to humble myself and go against all that I thought, was taught and believed for years about Jesus. At first, I didn’t want to accept the truth and have to change my way of seeing and doing things. Consequently, I ran from the Lord for three years. I had always known that Almighty God’s Word was true and the only source of ultimate truth (John 17:17). I knew in my heart also that I had to humble myself and let Almighty 9God and His Word be my authority and guide.

I knew in my heart also that I had to humble myself and let Almighty God and His Word be my authority and guide.

At the end of these three years of wrestling with the reality (truth) and The Holy Spirit’s convicting hand (John 16:8-14), I began to read and study God’s Word for myself. As I did so, I started to see for the first time what God’s Word said about the Person of Jesus Christ and about God’s true plan of salvation. I came to the realization that what I had always believed and trusted in my whole life was absolutely wrong and bankrupt! It was a lie and a godless self-delusion that would not be able to stand before Almighty God in the Day of Judgment. My “religious Christian” sincerity would be my ruin, and my misguided good intentions would be my doom (Matt 7:21-23). In God’s Holy Word I saw for the first time the TRUE Christ of the Scriptures and God’s TRUE plan of salvation (Rom. 10:17).

I was at a crossroads. Was I going to trust in the Jesus Christ of the Holy Scriptures, or was I going to keep trusting in my own False Christ and system of “good works,” a vanity that I trusted in all those years which contradicted Christ’s atoning work on the cross (Matt 7:21-23, Rom. 3:20-22; Gal. 2:16, 21)?

My Friend, God in His grace and mercy showed me that He loved me and had a wonderful plan and future for my life. He had kept me from so many disastrous consequences of a reckless youth and immoral life. My decision at this point in my life was an easy one. I needed to put my trust in Jesus who died, was buried and rose again for me according to the scriptures (1 Cor. 15:1-4). This was the very One that loved me and gave his life for me (Gal. 2:20). I bowed my head and heart and asked the Lord Jesus Christ of the Holy Scriptures to come into my heart and save me and deliver me from my sin and trespasses against His righteous Person. When I did that, He did what He promised He would do: Come in! (Rev. 3:20)

My friend, it has been 23 years and I have never looked back. A dear Christian preacher, who I would watch each Sunday night on TV after a weekend of partying and decadence said, “That when you finally put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ you will never be the same! My friend, how true that is! Almighty God used that man and that message to bring me to a saving knowledge of Himself through Jesus Christ.
You see, the very One I thought I knew all of my life, I found I didn’t know Him at all.

You see, the very One I thought I knew all of my life, I found I didn’t know Him at all. God in his great love reached out to me and called me to Himself. In His tender mercy and patience, He kept knocking on my heart’s door. In His grace and kindness, He revealed Himself in a very personal and real way to me, and I finally let Him into my heart to deliver me and give me eternal life - just as He said He would do (Rev. 3:20). I have truly never been the same since then, and God has truly blessed me and has been teaching me so much about myself, time, the world we live in, eternity future, and His wondrous love and grace towards me.

May I ask you this personal question? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, as the Holy Scriptures teach? True Christianity is not a religious/ cultural philosophy or a practice of “Christian” values and traditions. It is a personal, living relationship with the Creator of heaven and earth in spirit and truth, as revealed in God’s Word (John 4:24). The very One who created all, died on the Cross to pay the price for your sins and mine (John 1:1-14; Philip. 2:4-13). My friend, I can’t think of anything more wonderful than that to tell anyone! May it be your real desire to know the One Who so loved you and sent his Son to die for you, so that you may be with Him forever in joy and peace (John 3:16-17; Gal. 1:4). Won't you place your trust in Him today? You will never be the same!
The Kingdom of heaven is truly at hand!

A Simple Question For All Of Us To Answer


Ask yourself this very simple question. How can an imperfect humanity who lives in an imperfect world bring about an absolutely perfect “Utopian” society? (See Romans 7:24.) The answer is a no-brainer yet extremely hard for humanity to digest: it never can. The only hope and deliverance for humanity today is found in its wonderful Creator and Redeemer, The Lord Jesus Christ.

Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior today? Only He can deliver you from the oppressive tyranny of Satan and the World System. He is the only deliverer from our bondage to Sin and all its awful consequences 
(Romans 6:23). He has come to set at liberty the sons of men (Rom. 4:17,18, 6:14,17-18, 22; 7: 24-25; 8:2, 21; Gal. 5:1; Eph. 4:8). May it be your sincere desire to put your trust in Him today!

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!


What is Sin?

This 2022 - Don't Be A Victim, Be Jesus' Victor!

In this 2022 year,  who knows what to expect in our EXPONENTIAL deteriorating and lawless day, but in it all, we know WHO we are expecting and looking for with great joy (John 14:3, 1 Thes. 4:13-18, 1 John 3:1-4))!

Beloved, daily bombardments from this demonic world seek to rattle and destroy the faith of the men and women of Almighty God
(John 16:33; Eph. 6:10-12, 1 Peter 5:8). It is so easy to look inwardly and subjectively and see ourselves as poor wretched victims. It is sad to say that many blood brought children of Almighty God in Christ today choose unbelief which results in the shipwrecked life on the rocks of lawless consequences, subjectivism, and self-pity. Truly there are no utopias here on planet earth even for God's redeemed (Matt. 6:27-33, John 16:33, Phil. 4:6-7), but we are not to let the spiritual war and adversities of this life derail us from all that Almighty God wants to do in our life for His GREAT NAME'S SAKE and GLORY (1 Cor. 10:31; Eph. 2:10; Phil. 2:12-13)!
 Satan, in his absolute vain attempt to overrule ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, TRUTH, REALITY, and the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God seeks to destroy the love and dedication of God's children. The Bible states: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8), and: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).

Stay prepared... so that you are always prepared!

The truth of the matter is that we are in a Great Spiritual War for the hearts, souls, and minds of men (saved and lost). Many are absolutely oblivious to this REALITY and fact. Satan, in his hatred, rage, absolute disdain, and rebellion against Almighty God, seeks the ruin and destruction of anyone that practices the ABSOLUTE TRUTHS of the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and His Word (Luke 11:4; 22:31-34, Eph. 6:10-12, 1 Peter 5:8).

There is adversity upon adversity, calamity upon calamity in this fallen world. Again there is no peace, no Utopias on the battlefield of this life (Eccl. 1-12, John 16:33; Eph. 2:1-2). To think otherwise is a delusion and a lie. Be not deceived! This is not our home. Jesus said, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33), and: exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22). The good news is that Christ will set up His Kingdom at His Second Coming to earth and establish His kingdom in RIGHTEOUSNESS (perfection). Then - and only then - will there be world peace.

Do not become a victim of circumstances but be a VICTOR for Jesus Christ by faith!

As we wait for Jesus' soon coming, looking into God’s Holy Word, the Bible repeatedly speaks of His great love for us. God's love, as defined therein, wants only the highest and best for the object of His love. The highest and best is the person of God and His will and way for each individual. God, who is infinite, gives all of His Eternal Person to finite man.

David stated; "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour" (Psalm 8:4,5),

"Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered" (Psalm 40:5).

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:35-39),

"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(John 3:16).
Almighty God loves you!!! Don't let your own heart or Satan tell you otherwise!
Passing through trials and adversities, it might seem to some that our Heavenly Father is our enemy and that He doesn't care at all. Oh, Beloved, this couldn't be further from the TRUTH. Satan the thug and slanderer loves it when we disconnect by unbelief and are led and deceived into thinking and believing this (Psalm 81:10-16; 95:8-11, Isa. 65:2, Heb. 3: 12-19; 4:2; 6:11-14; Rev. 2:7). We are to cast down ALL that seeks to raise its self up in unbelief and fear! We are to cast down ALL that seeks to override all of the ETERNAL riches, promises, truths and realities which is found in Christ Jesus for us (Rom. 8:26-39, 2 Cor. 10:5, Eph. 1-2; Heb. 11:6; 1 John 5:1-4, Rev. 1:17-18). Beloved, by faith in Almighty God and His Word, we can defeat this strategy of the enemy of our souls and achieve in Christ the ETERNAL victory and whatever Almighty Go wills for us for His glory! The Bible states: "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" (1 John 5:4,5).

The victory is gained when the child of God puts his or her faith and trust in the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God (Rom. 8:26-39, Phil. 4:13; Heb. 11:6; 1 John 4:4; 5:2-4; Rev. 1:17-18). As believers in the RISEN LORD JESUS CHRIST, we can by faith get through the adversity and calamity that comes our way, knowing that Almighty God our Father indeed loves us and has a GREAT ETERNAL plan to make us winners and not losers! Listen to this glorious promise: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:26). Almighty God has a wonderful plan for you in any situation and in every setting!

In these last days may we be strong and of good courage; and have faith in ALL that Almighty God is. May we - with the eyes of faith - see past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a conqueror in Christ., as Almighty God has called us!

'Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14)!

Remember, Beloved: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world" [i.e., Satan and his minions] (1 John 4:4).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


Rule it all Joy!
