Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend 🙂 It’s a rough day for me as I just lost a tooth which has left me not wanting to be seen in public due to, but I’m trying to swallow my pride and just be humble about it as I wait to get in to the dentist (not till April 10th! eeks!!). It’s going to be a long three weeks! (prayers appreciated!!)
But there are more intense things happening in our world than my lost tooth. Let’s get to that now —>
UPDATE: This is posted a day behind on 3/19/18 due to technical difficulties. I got it fixed now 🙂
This week here in the US, we’ve had another mass school shooting 🙁 This time in Parkland, Florida. The tragedy as awful and terrible as it was, is also dividing Christian against Christian in this blogger’s viewpoint. I have over 700 friends on Facebook and well over half are Christians. Half of those are posting things promoting the need (insistance actually) for gun control. The other half are staunchly opposed to gun control insisting that if you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns and thus there will be no way to protect themselves and their families as well as concerns for too much government control.
In addition, for me, there is a huge concern that our response to this is a tool for dividing the body of Christ. It’s good to have strong beliefs and to know why you believe what you believe, but in the midst of that, it’s imperative that we as believers disagree agreeably. To have discussions is a good thing, but when you start feeling irate towards other believers for not viewing an issue the same way you do and expressing that anger at them is a HUGE problem for any believer. The rest of the world is watching us and when they see us tearing into each other, they ask themselves why they should give our faith any consideration. It’s a very bad testimony and shines a very bad light on our Savior, Jesus Christ. This must grieve Him terribly 🙁 The death and carnage is terribly terribly sad and outrageous. That’s a given. I just want to encourage you, my readers (and myself) to be very careful how we react to it and to remember to be loving in the midst of our outrage and remember to reflect that love to the world and each other. Don’t let the enemy use you as a tool in his arsenal!
Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a healthy and blessed week!
Firstly, I would like to ask for prayer for my other blog, CalvaryCouponers.com. That blog has the same content as this one but there is also couponing content. That blog theme’s creative team released an update and it threw the layout all out of whack. I’m still trying to figure out a fix and am also waiting to hear back (I hope) from a plea on the WordPress site where I asked for help. Prayers appreciated! 🙂
Hello everyone! Well the holidays are behind us and I’m trying to get the “normal” back to routine 🙂 I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a blessed Christmas! Speaking of normal, this post gets me back to my normal posting of our end of the age updates posts every Sunday. My hope with these posts is that we all are kept alert to what is occuring in our world and how it matches up to Bible prophecy (and boy does it ever!). Here are this week’s updates:
Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a joyous Christmas season as the day approaches on which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ! I apologize for the lateness of this post. I’ve been swamped with making my own Christmas cards this year (a post to come on that) and my intermediate sign language class. A lot has happened since my last prophecy update post, so let’s get right to it! –>
(I’m going to post the most recent videos. If you’d like to watch the weeks I missed sharing, click on the link below each video set to go to the list of videos for each respective speaker.)
I feel like it’s been months since I posted a prophecy update post! The Lord is teaching me patience in a big way while waiting for my web host to finish fixing my blogs. But this one is up and running, so I’m sharing this week’s updates right here 🙂 Here we go!
First off, let me apologize for not getting last week’s updates post done. The week just got away from me and I had so much going on that I ran out of time. I started taking a sign language class last month and that’s thrown me for a loop as well 🙂
Also, after some bandwidth issues yesterday after posting my Friday Freebie planner printable, I reached out to my web hosting company and upgraded my account to a business account, so hopefully my two blogs will now be much quicker and have no bandwidth problems from here out! 🙂
Pastor J.D. Farag:
(waiting for this week’s to post. Does anyone know if this week’s is canceled?)
Joel is super busy right now as his 2017 Epicenter Conference has gotten underway a few days ago. Click on the screenshot below to pull up the site you can watch his videos on –>
(I really encourage you to follow his blog posts HERE and HERE).)
oel is very intelligent and up to date on current events involving Israel (where he and his family now live), the Middle East, Russia, and others. I own every book he’s written and have learned a great deal from him. You can find his books HERE, which I highly recommend!
Joel has a new book coming out in March called The Kremlin Conspiracy I’ve already pre-ordered on Amazon ? Check it out! –>
(Find Hal’s recent videos there on his web site. A lot of videos of his are being posted to YouTube that are old videos but given the current date. I’m going to start getting it from his web site. I can’t embed the video into my blog post here, but you can click on the screenshot above to pull up the current video in a new tab.)
Hello everyone! Isn’t it great to get together with other believers like this and fellowship and share the Word together? That’s what I like to think I’m doing as I write these posts every week. Part of the dialogue we share together is comparing notes with what we’ve learned since the last time we were together. That’s especially true of those who have a great passion for Bible prophecy -the study of what is happening in the world and how it lines up with world events. We compare notes and see what each other thinks. You agree up to now, correct? 🙂
I just say that to encourage you NOT TO SCOFF at those who are watching and share that they suspect that a certain time period is a high-watch time. None of the Bible prophecy teachers I follow dogmatically say that a certain day is definitely the day of the Rapture. They’ve said that it’s strongly a high-watch period based on Biblical statements compared with things in the world. That should tell us that they are serious watchers. Are you watching as closely as they’ve been? I doubt if any of us are.
Now, of course if someone DOES say that Jesus absolutely IS coming back for His church on a certain date, do not listen to them. PRAY FOR THEM. Listen carefully to what they say. If they seem puffed up and arrogant about it, I don’t listen to them nor will I share their messages here on my blog. If they seem to be humble and seriously seeking and not dogmatically insisting on an exact date (not just a high -watch time), I respect them for the effort they’re putting in to watch and keep us informed. They should be prayed for especially because the world and many many Christians are scoffing at them and slandering them with others.
DON’T YOU BE ONE OF THEM! Pray for them! Love them, love ON them. Show them the love of Jesus. They truly need it. Be wise and not arrogant. Don’t be all puffed up yourself! I’ve had a handful of Facebook friends laughing and taunting these teachers and sharing memes full of images and words that make fun. When I see that I think of the pharisees. Don’t be one! If you have been, please reconsider your actions and repent and be loving from now onward.
Be an ambassador for Jesus. Represent Him well because the world is watching! The Bible tells us that they will know we are Christians by their love for one another. Are they seeing love from you towards these watchers? Think about it!
Please listen to the first part of Pastor J.D. about the September 23rd rapture watching. Thank you for your kindness, pastor J.D. So many believers are being so cruel to those who honestly thought it would happen. Be kind to each other, everyone!
This week’s Mindful Monday devotional is very near and dear to my heart. The devotional is given by Anne Graham Lotz. You may know her best as the daughter of Billy Graham. As many of my readers and those who know me are aware, the Rapture and Bible prophecy as a whole is a calling of mine, and has been since a few years before I gave my heart to Christ when I was a senior in high school. Both of my grandfathers were pastors so I grew up in my mom’s dad’s church in my early years. The closest I became aware of what the end times were back then was from singing the song, “I’ll Fly Away.” As a child, I just thought the song was about the time of our deaths.
Through a whole series of events I now realize were orchestrated by my Father, God, I was educated about the Rapture and subsequent tribulation period to be endured by those who would be Left Behind. I definitely did not want to be left behind to
