News and Notes Update: February 1, 2021

Understand please that when I say the PreTrib Rapture, I am talking about the Lord taking His Church/Body to be with Him prior to the pouring out of His WRATH. The Bible says “day of the Lord” is the start of God pouring out His wrath onto humanity and this earth. It is not a particular “day” but a period of time; the seven year Tribulation period. The entirety of that seven years is the pouring out of God’s wrath and note, all events of the Tribulation are directed by God from His throne room as evidenced by the fact that the apostle John is called up to heaven to begin viewing those events from that vantage point (Rev 4).

So, while the Church is fully exempt from all aspects of God’s wrath, we are not exempt from tribulation (small “t”) and persecution in this life. In fact, we are promised tribulation (Matthew 10:16-42; John 15:20; 2 Timothy 3:12; see also Revelation 2:10). Persecution is promised. If you are not at all being persecuted for being a Christian, maybe your circle of friends is too small. Maybe you’re not being an effective witness for Christ. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m simply noting that you may wish to take a look at things. Are you afraid to stand up for Jesus? Are you unwilling to speak out against the things that society has said we cannot be “negative” about? I’m not saying to go looking for persecution. I’m simply saying be prepared for the fact that if you’re not suffering for it now, it may well be on the way.

News and Notes Update: January 11, 2021

Right now, in America, Big Tech has more influence and power than the Constitution. That should be cause for grave concern. In fact, it’ll get worse. While the Left smiles smugly about the fact that those with whom they disagree are being silenced, they fail to understand history and the fact that Fascists will eventually come for them. They believe they are safe from expulsion or censure, when it reality, no one is safe from it. No one. In fact, I would argue – again from history – that those on the Left who support this type of fascist censorship will be on the receiving end of it as well, once the Left feels they have gained control over conservatives. It always happens in society as proven throughout history when dictators are allowed to take the reins.

Should Christians Resist Tyranny?

Jesus resisted peacefully. At times, He got into heated exchanges with the religious leaders. On at least one occasion He had some very pointed words for a political leader of His day (cf. Luke 13:32). You’ll no doubt recall the numerous times the religious leaders wanted to kill Jesus and set about to do just that. Jesus’ resistance to their leadership was not sinful or wrong. It was necessary.

Biblical View of Self-Defense

We live in a time where the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, current possibilities of economic and societal collapse, and crime have people buying guns and ammunition in large quantities for self protection. What does the Bible say about that? What does the Bible say about so-called “assault weapons”?

As always, we want our hearts and minds to be ruled and informed by Scripture–not by our emotions, not by our experiences, and certainly not by the World. And because the Scriptures have much to say about this topic, it is relevant and worth examining in the Church.

News and Notes Update: Dec 7, 2020

During WWII, my wife’s grandparents were fairly well to do living in Austria. Because of the war, the military came in and took over their home and kicked them out. What could they do? They were outgunned. They had to leave and ultimately lived in a camp for displaced citizens for 10 years before they were allowed to come to the USA and only after guaranteeing that they would not be a burden on the government. The Roman Catholic church sponsored them, brought them over and helped the men get jobs. Her parents actually met and married in that camp.

Technocracy: World Government

We are His sheep. He leads us, guides us, and provides for us…if we are willing to submit to Him and trust in His provision. This should unite our hearts to Him in adoration and worship. He is God. There is no other. Anyone else who claims it is merely a pretender. God is the Lord. He and He alone wants what is best for us. His provision will never fail if we learn to depend upon Him for all things and for direction. As the final world empire is being built as I write this (that seems weird to say that, but it is very true), we must lean on the hope we have in the Lord. That is crucial.

Technocracy: Controlling Your Movements

Remember, technocracy relies on the subject of “climate change” that causes fear in people so that we will want to use less energy. In fact, everything the technocrats do is fear-based because they know that fear is a tremendous motivator. People who fear want to be released from that fear and because of that, they are willing to do whatever it takes to experience that release and once again be able to embrace “safety.”

News and Notes Update: November 11, 2020

The world is headed toward judgment and Psalm 2 bears this out very clearly, as just one example. The nations rage at God. They want so desperately to throw off the “chains” of His greatness and oversight. They want to do things their way and snub God. In fact, they want to forget God altogether. God will give them that opportunity in the coming Tribulation.

News and Notes Update: October 12, 2020

Now more than ever, authentic Christians need to step up to the plate and understand that we have a job to do. That job is outlined in Matthew 28’s the Great Commission. In this day and during this time, people are really hurting. They are extremely fearful. Many are taking their own lives. These times and days should imprint on our minds the absolutely need to be faithful in telling people about the hope that we have in Jesus! There can be no exceptions.
