In this day there is a problem,
Al Gore says the earth has a fever, he does not know how right he is. The Earth is sick, why? Because the church is sick! We have allowed an infection to go unchecked in the body! First a subtle cut, then it gets worse then we grow numb and feverish:
1. 1962- Supreme Court removes prayer from schools, this broke the skin.
2. 1969- Stonewall riots: series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community, introduced a virulent strain of bacteria.
3: 1973: row vs wade, legalization of abortion, infection sets in.
4: 2000’s: Gay rights laws, legalized marriage, Gays allowed in military, Gays in boy scouts, Gay ministers and performing gay marriages in Gods house; Raging fever!
Now we are seeing the results of the years of sickness,
As the infection has gone unchecked as the US has slowly turned from God this great country who still is the last superpower but not much longer I am afraid.
As I stated the body has a fever, we have an infection that has been going since the mid century. The body of Christ has been weakened and the enemy thinks crippled but we know the truth that the battle is won!
Now for the good news, the cure is here! Jesus Christ is the cure his blood can heal and cure! The bible tells us if MY people called by MY name turn from their wicked ways I will hear and heal their land!
This is for the hurting also, if the adulterers and the homosexuals would realize we are not their enemies, Jesus loved them so much he died for them, I love them so much I would also, I just can not accept a lifestyle that God has called an abomination and I don’t want to see them go to hell and I will not call evil good! This is setting up for the anti christ to come on the scene, the enemy is running about roaring and making noise he thinks he is winning but he has lost and he is too proud to see it. Lets pray for God to visit this land that was set up and dedicated to him and bring a last days harvest in this land of plenty.

Seems like every few weeks I hear on news about a new technology that is warned as being the mark of the beast. Well now it looks like the alarm should be going off, yet don’t hear the warning. I found a good blog thinking like I was so here is some of “COVID-19 and the mark of the beast”.
Covid-19 and The Mark of the Beast
By: Tavis Bohlinger
I know of no reputable biblical scholar or theologian who would endorse that the COVID-19 quarantine or a vaccine is related to the “mark of the beast”. For starters, in Revelation, the “mark of the beast” is by no means a medical procedure. Most likely, it’s not even a physical or visible mark at all. Contrary to some of the more fear-inducing theories that have in the past gained steam in some evangelical circles, the “mark” is not at all something that could be accidentally taken either.
Why? Because the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16-18) is a mark that is closely tied to the worship of the beast (13:12, 15; cf. 19:20; 20:4). Thus, the mark of the beast is a mark of loyalty and devotion to the beast.
Moreover, when you compare those passages where the mark of the beast is discussed with passages like Rev. 7 and 14, it is plausible to think that the mark of the beast is most likely a sign that identifies you as something you already are—namely wicked and evil, a person of the dragon. I say this because when you read Rev. 7:1-8 and 14:1 (where the mark of the Lamb is discussed), you’ll notice it is a mark given to God’s people, God’s servants, in order to identify them as such and, of course, to protect them. They get the mark of the Lamb because they are already united with the Lamb.
It seems pretty evident that all of this is the case because these two marks—the mark of the beast and the mark of the Lamb—are meant to be seen as two polar realities, two opposite signs, marking out as it were two different types of people, namely, the wicked on the one hand and the righteous on the other.”
…Speaking of sensationalism, it is interesting how things cycle in and out the way they do. Even in our own lifetimes, for example, the “mark” was first attached to social security numbers, then to credit cards. Now, apparently, certain interpretations of the COVID-19 quarantine are making their own contributions to evangelical lore.
Now we need to look rat what the Bible says .
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
So, what I am getting at today is this, nothing we have now is the so called mark. However, it is conditioning people for it. There are injectable chips that CAN do all the same things. However, it is not a choice to renounce Jesus or die! No way to trick you to take it if you get an inoculation for something like say COVID!
What Covid is doing is making something mandatory to stay in society! I remember reading about a similar item being used in the building up to WW2 in Nazi Germany. All undesirables were rounded up and given a patch to wear, a mark so the Nazis could find them and send to gas chambers. The Bible says the Antichrists mark will be specific and must be accepted if you want to work, eat, drink, travel etc. If you refuse you will be beheaded!
The Covid vaccination started as voluntary since it is experimental and government said it wanted to reward the people. I was given the Johnson & Johnson shot on the first day I was allowed by the VA. I believe in the shot for the good it does but, the ones not taking it that is their rights! The federal government does not have the authority to override our decisions! This opens the door for an Antichrist to do the same!
Please don’t be afraid of the vaccine and if you are able to take it then consider it. But never will I stand by and watch fellow citizens being forced to get a shot they don’t agree to, what’s next government mandated abortions?
I am going to get serious for a minute. This politicization of President Biden’s mental state really needs to stop. Having lived thru a family members living with dementia is tough, and from all appearances President is going thru it also. This is sad, after all the joking, criticizing that happens he is not only the President of the United States, but also a husband, father and grandfather.
We as Christians are to lift our leaders up in prayer for protection and give honor! I don’t agree with his party or his beliefs however, he is still the president, whether we support or not.
President Biden needs our prayers not because he deserves them but because Jesus said to do it. So please lets fulfill our Godly duty and show respect and pray for our leaders. It’s the right thing to do.
A friend posted about the correlation of the Roman Empire and the USA. That got me thinking, on the similarity between what the Romans went thru and what we see now. Let’s look at what a history book might show years from now. (My analysis at trends and opinion).
1. The Roman Empire came from the Roman republic. Which was from overthrowing the Roman Kingdom. The Roman Empire had the Pax Romana 200 years of peace. This allowed the Empire to thrive, learning art all grew. The Roman Empire grew to a point where it grew lazy. Did not want to do their own work anymore and instead brought in people to do the menial jobs. They offered them citizenship for this. So by the time the Roman Empire had split in two parts of the east and west, majority of the military was new non Romans who were mercenaries who did not care about citizenship. So the groups who invaded the empire had no problems infiltrated the military with their own groups, which allowed them to invade and bring down the Western empire. During this there was something else at work. The piping systems that were made long ago were lead this led to generations of lead poisoning of the Romans. The Eastern part of the empire lasted longer till the Muslims defeated them with same situations as before related to home defense.
The United States of America was formed after the revolution from the Kingdom of Great Briton. The USA grew rapidly and became the greatest country in the history of the world. Like the Roman Empire they had slavery through out most of their history. Unlike them we fought a war to abolish it. The Civil war traumatized the country even to present times. The US grew from East to West taking over the whole content. Then we started outward. In the 20th century the US fought in 5 major wars including 2 world wars which we won. Because the US felt if not for their isolationist views WW2 might have ended earlier, so the US took upon itself to be the bulwark against Russia, China and other communism during the 50 year Cold War. In the early 21st century The US basically split in two factions Republicans and Democrats. The Republicans are for greater financial growth, stronger military for the country, understanding a static constitution that should not be changed. The Democrats are for social change. Pushing for open borders and smaller military.
The border became more and more open and the Democrat party didn’t stop it. This put the US in same position that Rome was in. We divided in very fundamental ways. We allowed very weak boarders and social ripping away at the very fabric of society. Fighting in the streets, burning building and attacking police and not obeying their instructions. Then the Democratic Party controlled the Presidency, House and Senate. They were able to add majority to Supreme Court allowing them to change the constitution and eventually bankrupted the USA,
There is nothing to make a guess on what will happen to this great experiment. However, considering nothing is alluded to in the Bible mentioning the USA in any form. We have Russia, China, Iran, all listed but we are not, they are our enemies and are on the rise now and we are declining. in the natural it looks bad, we need the country to come to God. I pray we do before its too late and we have vandals at the gates.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
I have seen a lot of power grabs from various groups in my life but what I am seeing now is terrifying me. Everybody said we were over reacting when we warned about what would happen if the Democrat Party got full control in the government. However, look what is happening NOW.
1. Shutting down free speech. Members of congress are actively trying to de platform conservative news. Here is part of what they wrote…
“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” California Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote in a letter to the companies.
“If so, why?” they asked.
The letters were sent to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet, and Hulu.
2. The Equality Act. This is so anti constitutional it tells us that Christians no longer has a say what we can preach or teach! It will tell us who we can hire, who can Pastor…
“the Act, as written, would roll back religious liberty protections. “Federal law has long recognized that certain services can present conflict for some faith-based health care providers with religious or moral objections to providing those services, and protected them from having to do so. We are concerned that the Equality Act omits and could erode or reduce those protections.” The legislation, she noted, “lacks conscience protection language and precludes application of RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act)”
Unity is what was promised by the new President! How is this unity? This is the dictatorship unity not democratic unity. How is it let’s look.
1. Taking away free speech with this woke movement where people bully so that opposition news organizations will be removed leaving only once source of news, the government. Complete disregard to 1st amendment. Leading to.
2. The past to take away our weapons all weapons. They want to require every owner to put in a data base everyone’s information and how many, type and location of every weapon. They then require us to have mental tests up to talking with former spouses, what can go wrong there? This violates the 2nd and 4th amendments to the constitution!
So the federal government will control all opposition in congress and White House, The news outlets, we can not teach what is the truth we have to teach what THEY say it is, and they can take our self defense. So tell me who do they sound like a republic where people rights are protected or the PRC where the government controls all areas of life?
Make no mistake, we are seeing more and more of the Bible coming to pass as we watch!
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
In the days of Noah the world was so wicked the Lord was ashamed of us. He wanted to start over. The world is so much worse than then. We have normalized homosexual rights and marriage. Transgender and debauchery is the law of that land and now new laws entrenching it to the church! God will not allow that to happen! God will not wink at sin. The only reason we have not been destroyed is the blood of Christ! His sacrifice has protected us with grace, but God will not hold back his chastisement for ever. We are already seeing some of it. COVID is a warning and a start. It will get worse. I am not writing to scare people but to warn them and get his people to pray and share the Gosple and take as many with us when God says enough. I would rather have someone mad at me for telling the truth than not telling and have them scream at me at judgement why did you tell me!
Are you a danger to satan? Are you known in hell? I am in a win win situation, the WORST the enemy can do is harass me and if God allows to send me home. So I want to be on the front lines leading the charge saving the lost. Will you follow me. You know recently I watched Le Mis and I knew how they felt on the battlements fighting for something worth fighting for. God bless all of you and I pray blessings and safety.
I am still in shock at the news of Charlie Troglin passed away. Even though it has been over 30 years since we last saw each other it only seem like a day. We were in home room together and had all kinds of classes. It really hit me hard when I heard how he passed. He had Covid. I have had friends and aquaintences die of it but this was the first case of a close friend to die of it. He was 55 and we are nto supposed to have anything to worry about according to the news. I want to tell all my friends who are decieved into thinking this is not real and a hoax. Wear your MASK!!! I do but will do more now. If not to make sure I am around for my wife, but to make sure I dont get someone else sick and die. Do you want that on your concience? If you are a Christian, the Bible talks about not letting your liberty cause someone else to stumble, it is the Hight of arrogance to think because you might have a right not to be told to wear something, you dont. Your wear a seat belt same thing. Please please please take care of your brother and sister by keeping them safe. God bless.
Growing up I remember there was certain ways it worked in the church. God used certain people, ones that were clean and not in trouble. A formula that overlooked the less desired parts ie the pinky toes. Everyone was a arm or eye or ear, those were used in ministry because people believed they were saved and sanctified. Thru the years this worked and everything was good till it wasn’t. Started having cases where a eye ran off with an ear or a arm was caught in an affair. Then people started to get jaded in church. Till God changed things.
I’ve noticed a new trend in ministry where the pinky toes were starting to get noticed and used. The little toes look insignificant but with out them you would have a hard time walking. It allows balance in the body. Now how can these little appendages be used over an ear,let’s look. The pinky’s are the dregs the atheist the rappers and actors the porn stars who were filthy and mocked Christian values. I’ve seen porn stars saved and used to reach the industry. In the last year I’ve seen, Snoop Dog come out as a Christian, Kanye West, thru Kanye ,Brad Pitt came back to Jesus. More everyday being used for Jesus, reaching their area for Christ! In the past the church would have shied away from the Kanye’s or Snoops because they didn’t believe the conversion was real. But now God is opening the doors for them. I truly believe this is the next wave of Gods move, the using of the pinky toes of church, and I am excited about it! We need to pray that these new appendages are knit in the body and have good mentors and pastors who can teach them and encourage them.
I look in the news lately and I am amazed at the states passing laws to kill children born alive! Even if you disagree with all the arguments about how life begins, it has always been once born they are humans! This is horrible and has to stop!
I say we have refused to lean now we must repeat it. In the 1850’s the United States was being torn apart by two sides against slavery. It literally ripped the country in half over it. 600,000 men died to end slavery. In 1973 the Supreme Court ruled the same bad ruling like Dread Scott did before civil war. Row v Wade is unconstitutional,and made it a right for killing children in the wood, “safe,legal,and RARE! Is the intent. Now it is legal to butcher children at will,with no permission from children. There is an undercurrent in the country where people have attacked and wounded and kill abortion providers. This will open to full civil war if something doesn’t happen soon. Millions of lives are at risk.
Lastly, let’s look at 1930’s Germany. Adolf Hitler came to power promised to solve Jewish problem. Now Democratic Party is coming to power promising socialist utopia where abortion on demand for so called reproductive rights. In doing so killed millions of babies but never after first trimester unless emergency. Now it’s legal to kill them for ANY reason after the child is born. This is another great solution by the modern day NAZI party! Recently, Congress was given chance to pass protection for born children and they refused..twice !
The Democratic Party refuses to learn from history and are forcing a civil war in the country. All for political gains. This is a spiritual basis all through history satan always killed the children to stop moves of God. How many doctors,scientists,soldiers,musicians have been butchered? Over 57,000,000 killed since 1973, the Holocaust was 5,000,000. Think about that.
Tonight the President of the USA is going to tell us the state of the union. That got me to thinking, what is the status of the body of Christ now?
The status is poor. Jesus when he left gave us ONE job to do. To make believers of all men. Instead we have relinquished our authority, we allow the government to dictate our attitudes and beliefs. Matt 28:17 tells us 17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 18ThenJesuscame tothemand said,“Allauthorityinheavenandonearthhas been givento Me.19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Jesus delegates us the authority, Exosia, power, unlimited. This means we have all deligated POWER in HEAVEN and Earth. The gates of Hell shall fall to us! Yet, in last 50 years we have seen the loss of prayer in school, government, everywhere. We are loosing free speech, the church of satan has won the right to put a statue of the devil on the capital steps in states. Pagans have worship services in the military so do various mythological groups like Norse. Abortion starting in 1973 with safe, rare procedures it is now cheered when you can butcher a fully born child! America WAKE UP! We the spiritual leaders are caught up in unless debates of what type of service is the best, is tithe legal, praying for the President to be removed! for examples. I can see the Generals of yesterday rolling in their graves at the stupidity. We are called to do one thing and we can’t do that right!
Please get back to God, pray and repent if needed. But time is SHORT we are a family and we need to act like the book of Acts is in effect which by the way it is, and build the body daily 3000, tell me how many have prayed and raised the dead, or healed someone? Why not, I am asking myself also. There is NO excuse, as Jesus said All authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to him, then after his resurrection delegate to us. An example is the police, the State has the obligation to police and keep peace, the People delegates to the State authority to police, which in turn delegates the police the authority needed.
Even though the body is weak now, all it takes is asking Christ for the power that we have then watch what happens.
In my almost 55 years, I have seen amazing growth in the mighty USA. One of the first things I remember was several space launches from Cape Kennedy, and went to the moon many times. Open heart surgery and artificial hearts were developed. We stopped the immoral separate and equal racism laws in the south.
However, I have noticed the loss of the soul of this country! in 1962 Engel v. Vitale case took prayer out of the public square. This was the beginning of the decline of the US.
The fight is for a so-called “right”, abortion! In 1973 Row vs Wade stated that “At the point of viability, which the Court believed to be in the third trimester, the state’s interest in “potential life” would become compelling, and the state could regulate abortion to protect “potential life.” At that point, the state could even forbid abortion so long as it made an exception to preserve the life or health of the mother.
Since this, over 61 million abortions have happened in the US since 1973. imagine that, we fought the greatest war in history because of the loss of 11 million Jews.
Imagine over 72,000 children a year in US alone. Up until this year this was limited to third trimester. Now, in New York the unthinkable has happened. Fully born children can be murdered. It has been taken to extreme, and what did the Gov and legislature do after passing this heinous law? They celebrated! Where is the soul of this country?
Where is the soul of the Democratic party now? The DNC convention in 2016 deliberately left God off and abortion was on. They finally put God back on but a major plank is abortion. Democrats who claim Christ you can’t continue to lie. We are to be “little Christs” and I will 1000% guarantee that Jesus would NEVER endorse murdering children. He expressly condemns hurting a child!
Not saying Republicans are perfect, however, we support life and right to life. The bible tells us things will get worse, a civil war is coming if something does not change. The civil war was fought in part the freeing of the black people from slavery. I see the left that is against life, the constitution and liberty and the right who fight for life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Pray for God to send a fresh wind so the well-meaning democrats that really feel this is a right for women, will clear the scales from their eyes and hearts.
I am sick of seeing that we should not talk about this because someone may be upset by having done an abortion and then possibly hurt themselves. Well they had issues before that and spreading Gods word should never be contained. Its LOVE telling people not hate! I am 100% against the protesters who resort to violence, God is clear about vengeance is HIS! And we as a country have a lot to answer for.
So pray for this country for revival and forgiveness. Blessings
As a Pastor of a church it is increasingly difficult to bring income into the storehouse. Between theologians who can convince sheep that the tithe is unGodly and the changes in the tax laws, it is a challenge. I’m going to punt on the first problem I mentioned for another time. Today it’s the raising of deductions for itemized returns. The new law increases the standard deduction to $12,000 for singles and $24,000 for couples. When I was younger and single and in military I had no problem giving 18 to 20k in tithes and offerings. Now that I’m married and semiretired, on what combination we make it would be very difficult to donate $24,000 and itemize. While we shouldn’t tithe as a tax write off the facts are many people do.
With the new levels introduced, we need to get more creative in getting the flock engaged in excited in giving to God. We have to stop the scare tactics that has been used too much! We are in the church age not Old Testament. We no longer under a curse, instead we are under a promise. One that states, test me and see. We are not limited to 10% anymore. If that is what you feel then do it,however if God prompts you to give 20% then do it. Once I realized that God wants to partner with his children and not threaten them, I truly wanted to do my part as a member in the kingdom of God.
This can be an opportunity to have giving grow as never before. Please let me know what you think? Blessings.
