SNOW in HAWAII!

Good morning, blog readers from sunny and cold (28 degrees) Maine where, on my morning walk on a golf course, I saw: 50 crows!

This headline was a stunner: “Blizzard Warning Issued for Hawaii with at Least 12 inches of Snow Forecast!” Meredith Deliso, of ABC News, reports: “Wind gusts over 100 MPH are also anticipated on the Big Island!” Me: “So much for ‘Global Warming!'”

Let me remind you that God and His angels control the weather. He reminds us of this in the first book of the Bible (Genesis 6:17-8:14) with the Flood and the last (Revelation 16:17, 18) with “flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder.”

So, stay tuned! If I am right (and I could be wrong), we ain’t seen nothing yet with wild weather and, as the good doctor told us, in Luke 21:25, “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.”

Yes, Jesus is coming! And, before He does, there will be a lot of surprises along the way, in addition the “signs” He gave us in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. So, keep watching, waiting, working, witnessing for and walking with Him until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, there is no time like the present, even today, to get right with Him by agreeing with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior and believe Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life. And, if you do, I’ll see you in heaven. Blessings, Doug (12/4/21)

MORE SIGNS!

Good morning, blog readers, from sunny, windy and cold (37 degrees) Maine where, on my morning walk on a golf course with heavy winds, I saw: 100+ crows and a flock of turkeys!

Over the last few years, I have been writing about the “signs” leading up to the return of Jesus Christ. Today, I would like to share with you “signs” leading up to the coming of the Antichrist which, I believe, will precede the coming of Christ to the earth.

Here are a couple of headlines from today’s news which caught my prophetical eye in relation to the coming of the Antichrist:

#1. “Germany Moving Closer to Making COVID Vaccinations Mandatory, Imposes Strict Curbs on Unvaccinated” by Chloe Taylor (CNBC News)

#2. New York City to Require Workers at Religious Schools to be Vaccinated (Arutz Sheva Staff)

Read Revelation 13, if you are Gentile (non-Jewish) and Daniel 9:20-27 (if you are Jewish) and you will learn about a coming dictator (“the beast out of the sea”) who will make a seven-year “peace treaty” with Israel, then break it halfway through, declare that he is God and kill all those who do not take his “mark” and worship him as God.

And, speaking of his “mark,” the apostle John, in Revelation 13:11-18, tells us of another “beast who was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name: 666).”

All these forced vaccinations, I believe (and I could be wrong), are just one step closer to the coming of the Antichrist which will bring us one step closer to the coming of Jesus Christ and His kingdom. I can’t wait, but wait I must. So, join me in watching, waiting, working, witnessing for and walking with Jesus until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, please, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life. And, if you do, I’ll gladly see you in heaven. Love, prayers and blessings, Doug (12/3/21)

LIES, INJURIES & MURDERS!

Good morning, blog readers, from sunny and warm (43 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in the dark, I saw: 2 deer!

This headline from the Children’s Health Defense Team really got my attention this morning: “Ignore the Latest Nonsense About ‘Variants.’ Stay Focused on Dangers of COVID Shots.”

In the article, I read: “Just in time for the end-of-the-year holidays, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials and their bought media agents trotted out a new round of Gothic horror stories about a puported COVID ‘variant.’

Their apparent hope is that the synchronized hullabaloo (or, in my opinion,”hellabaloo”) about ‘variants’ will distract the public from the true nightmare that is unfolding: a record-setting uptick in all-cause mortality that jives suspiciously not only with the timing of the COVID vaccination rollout but with the top adverse events – heart failure, heart disease, circulatory conditions and strokes – associated with the experimental COVID shots.

Media reports acknowledge the rising tide of ‘extra-non COVID deaths’ and ‘seriously ill people’ swarming emergency departments, even stating that patients are ‘showing up with much sicker than ER staff have ever seen’ and are younger than expected.

However, while admitting patients’ unusual symptoms – abdominal pain, blood clots, heart conditions and tingling of extremities – are not COVID-related, health officials assert ‘no one knows why they are occurring.’

For others (including me), the explanation is obvious. “These are precisely the ailments one would expect to see,” said Mike Whitney of The UNZ Review, “if one had just injected millions of people with a clot-generating biologic that triggers a violent immune response that attacks the inner lining of the blood vessels inflicting severe damage to the body’s critical infrastructure.

South African physician Dr. Shankara Chetty recently termed the vaccines’ synthetic spike protein ‘one of the most contrived poisons that man has ever made.”

Wow! Wow! Wow! And all, straight from hell and the devil himself who Jesus told us, in John 8:44, is a “murderer, a liar and the father of lies.” So, wake up, America and world, and believe Jesus is the only Savior from sin and eternal life (John 3:16). He is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6), not any doctor, scientist, politician or news reporter, most of whom are feeding us day and night with their lies, straight from the “father or lies,” the devil. And, God will hold them to a higher degree of accountability (Luke 12:48). And, on our part, as believers in Jesus, let us remember to “love our enemies and pray for those who persecuute us” (Matthew 5:44). Prayers and blessings, Doug (12/2/21)

LOCKDOWNS & PUTDOWNS!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (34 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in the dark, I saw: a dog!

Here are some interesting and scary headlines in today’s news:

#1. Austria Locks Down 2 Million Unvaccinated Adults (Technocracy News)

#2. Greece to impose monthly fine on unvaccinated adults over 60 (New Your Post)

#3.Greece requiring negative COVID-19 tests, proof of vaccination to attend church services (The Christian Post)

#4. Will You Be Jailed for Protesting Vaccine Mandates? (Dr. Joseph Mercola)

#5. Technocracy’s Perilous Swan Dive Into Outright Totalitarianism (Technocracy News)

Dear believers in Jesus and unbelievers, do you realize what is going on around the world and in this country? Evil men and women, the so-called “experts” who want you to “follow the science” and get vaccinated over and over and over and over again, are slowing trying to take over this world, this country and you one vaccination at a time.

Please hear and believe these words from the apostle John who warned us, in I John 4:1-3, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit (including the “follow the science” spirit) to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.”

Did you get that? The “spirit of the antichrist is already in this world.” And, if you can’t see it, either you are not a believer in Jesus or a very immature one who has been duped by the “experts” into getting not a vaccine, but an “experimental gene therapy” which has killed and injured hundreds of thousands of people, including children and babies. This is, indeed, the spirit of the antichrist and a forerunner of the prophesied antichrist of Revelation 13, who will come onto the world scene as a “peacemaker” for a season, then declare that he is God and alone to be worshiped with the death penalty for all those who resist him.

Wake up, dear Christians around the world, and fix your eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) while you watch, wait, work, witness for Jesus and walk with Him until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, please, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (I Corinthians 15:1-4; John 3:16). Blessings, Doug (12/1/21)

WORLD HARMONY?

Good morning, blog readers, from sunny, windy and cold (28 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk under clear skies, I saw: 4 deer and the heavens declaring the glory of God!

This headline by Robin Gomes of Vatican News caught my eye this morning: “Pope to Focolare-linked bishops: Help realize God’s ‘dream’ of harmony in the world.”

Now, if you are like me, you are wondering, “What is Focolare?” Gomes explains: “The Focolare Movement, officially known as the Work of Mary, was founded by the charismatic Italian laywoman Chiara Lubich during the Secod World War in 1932 in Trent. Approved by the Catholic Church in 1962, the Movement aims at spreading the message of unity worldwide. Inspired by Jesus’ prayer to the Father, ‘That they may all be one’ (John 17:21). Its goal is to promote fraternity and to achieve a more united world in which people respect and value diversity.”

Sounds good, doesn’t it? After all, don’t we all want the world to live in peace and harmony? John Lennon expressed this in his song, “Imagine,” with the chorus: “You may say I’m a dreamer, But I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will live as one.”

So, what do I think about this? Based on my understanding of Scripture and God’s prophetic word, this world is headed towards a series of wars according to Jesus in Matthew 24:6, Mark 13:7 and Luke 21:9, perhaps even another world war, even before Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16). In fact, according to Revelation 6:7, 8, the apostle John wrote: “When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ‘Come.’ I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword (war) and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.”

After a number of wars, Jesus will return to bring “peace on earth and good will to all men and women,” that is all who have been saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ, His death, burial and resurrection and not by works (Ephesians 2:8, 9), that is, things like: getting baptized, confirmed, joining a church, taking communion, etc.).

Only the Lord Jesus Christ can save this world from total destruction. And, He will someday. But, more importantly, only He can save you from your sins and give you eternal life. Please, if you have not already done so, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (I Corinthians 15:1-4; John 3:16). And, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, fix your eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) while watching, waiting, witnessing for and walking with Jesus until He comes. Love, prayers and blessings, Doug (11/30/21)

NUKES and QUAKES!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cold (23 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in the dark, I saw: 4 deer and Screech Jr. who was ascreeching!

This morning, I read this significant headline from the Jerusalem Post: “Israeli military readying for ‘Plan B’ if Iran nuclear talks fail.”

In the article, Anna Ahronheim of the Jerusalem post, wrote: “Military drills with troops from other countries could help the IDF be ready to fight as part of a military coalition in the future, Col. Aviran Lerer said.”

The article continued: “Israel’s military is continuing to develop its ability to conduct a military strike against Iran’s nuclear program should circumstances demand it. After a five-month hiatus, indirect talks between the United States and Iran are set to resume on Monday (today), with the other parties to the nuclear deal mediating in hope of reestablishing an agreement to curb the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions.”

Then, there was the headline from yesterday’s Jerusalem Post: “Iranian Brig.-Gen urges destruction of Israel prior to nuke talks.” In the article, Benjamin Weinthal reported: “The spokesman for the Islamic Republic of Iran’s armed forces, Bri.-Gen, Abolfazl Shekarchi, on Saturday urged the total elimination of the Jewish state during an interview with an Iranian regime-controlled media outlet.” Abolfazl said: “We will not back off from the annihilation of Israel even one millimeter. We want to destroy Zionism in the world.”

And so, dear friends, there is a lot riding on these nuclear talks. And yet, as Christians, we believe God is still on the throne and in control. And, by the way, I believe (and I could be wrong) He has given us a blueprint for the future. He tells us, in Psalm 83, of a future war between Israel and her Muslim neighbors who, in verse 4, say, “Come, let us wipe them (Israel) out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” Hmmm! Sounds a lot like what General Abofazl said.

Now, I believe (and I could be wrong), after Israel defeats her neighbors, she is then living in peace and safety (Ezekiel 38:11) when Russia, Iran and a host of other nations invade Israel “to capture spoil and to seize plunder” (verses 12 and 13), only to be destroyed by the Lord God Himself which you can read about in Ezekiel 38:18-39. Then, I believe (and I could be wrong), the antichrist will appear and sign a “peace treaty” with Israel for seven years which may very well allow the Jews to rebuild their temple and reinstutute their temple sacrifices. Then, he will break his treaty with Israel, go into the temple in Jerusalem, stop the temple sacrifices, declare that he alone is God and alone to be worshiped with the death penalty for all those who resist him. You can read about this in Daniel 9:24-27; Matthew 24:15-21; Mark 13:14-23; Luke 21:20-24; II Thessalonians 2:1-4 and Revelation 13. So, stay tuned, as I believe we could see one or two of these wars in our lifetime.

And, I almost forgot, there was a “strong” (6.6) earthquake in the IZU Islands Region of Japan this morning in addition to the “major” (7.5) quake yesterday in Peru. P.S. I believe (and I could be wrong) the U.S. is due for a “big one,” sometime soon. Yes, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Jesus is coming! Are you ready for tougher times, an increase of persecution and “on call” for the work the Lord would have us do?

So, as we watch, wait, work, witness for Jesus and walk with Him until He comes, let us put on the “armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-17), report for duty and be ready for whatever He would have us do today to His glory. And, if you are still not a believer in Jesus, please, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior (Romans 3:23, 24) and belive Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (I Corinthians 15:1-4; John 3:16). And, if you do, I’ll see you in heaven! Blessings, Doug (11/29/21)

PERUVIAN QUAKE!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (28 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk under clear skies, I saw the heavens declaring the glory of God and 3 deer!

This just in from CNN and the USGS: “A magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck Peru early Sunday morning. The earthquake’s epicenter was reported in the Amazonas region but was also felt in the capital of Lima and other neighboring towns. No major damage or tsunami alerts have been reported yet.”

This 7.5 quake falls into the “major” category (7.0-7.9). Also, this past week, there have been two “strong” quakes: a 6.0 in the Solomon Islands Region and a 6.2 in Myanmar.

Remember, Jesus said, in Matthew 24:7, there would be “earthquakes in various places” before His return. Oh, and, by the way, we have not seen a “strong” or greater earthquake in the U.S. for a long time. Stay tuned!

Today, Lord willing, I will be doing some supply preaching in two different churches with the theme “Thanksgivings,” based on II Corinthians 9:6-15 which concludes: “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift,” that is the gift of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died upon a cross for our sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all our sins and give us eternal life (John 3:16). Praying for Jesus to be your Savior and Lord. Blessings, Doug (11/28/21)

OPTIONS on the TABLE!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cold (27 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw: 4 deer!

Here are four more interesting and, perhaps prophetical, headlines from the news:

#1. Former Mossad chief: “Attack on Iran must be on the table” (ArutzSheva7)

#2. Top US general says Iran ‘very close’ to bomb, plans are ready if diplomacy fails (Times of Israel Staff and Agencies)

#3. U.S. says, ‘all options’ on the table over Russian troop buildup near Ukraine (Reuters

Let me remind you again that, according to Ezekiel 38, sometime in the future, Russia, Iran and a host of other countries will attack Israel to “take a spoil” (verse 12) which verse 13 lists as: “silver and gold, cattle and goods” which also means “wealth” in the Hebrew. In other words, Israel will have things much of the world wants or needs. And, despite the fact that Israel is totally outnumbered and defenseless against her enemies (verse 11), the Lord God Himself comes to Israel’s rescue and destroys her enemies which you can read about in 38:18-39:29.

So, stay “on the alert,” dear brothers and sisters in Christ, as He warned us in Mark 13:33, 35 and 37 and keep watching, waiting, working, witnessing for Jesus and walking with Him until He comes.

And, if you still are not a believer in Jesus, please, agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life. Blessings, Doug (11/27/21)

B’esrat HaShem!

Good morning, blog readers from cloudy, dark and cold (12 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw: a dog!

This morning, I was reading through the latest update from the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement which reported about SUKKOT 2021 (the Feast of Tabernacles): “A dramatic march of the Faithful Movement to the Holy Temple Mount, Signs of the Biblical End-Times.”

Like some of us Christians who study Bible prophecy, these Jews also recognize that we are now seeing “signs of the Biblical end times.” Now granted, unlike us, they are not looking at it from a New Testament perspective, but from their Hebrew Scriptures, known to us as the Old Testament.

The report continues: “A critical time throughout the world and in Israel: a terrible pandemic and disasters all over the world, a new government in Israel, Iran theatens to destroy Israel with nuclear weapons, a new administration in America, President Joe Biden and his administration, the European Union, the United Nations Organization, and Islamic Terror Organizations threaten and pressure Israel not to build in Jerusalem, not to build the third temple and the holy temple mount, and not to build in Judea and Samaria.”

Then, the article quotes from Nehemiah 2:20, “The G-d of heaven is the One who will grant us success. We, His servants, will start rebuilding, but you (the enemies of Israel) have no portion, right or claim in Jerusalem.”

As I read through the Bible, I recognize that the Jewish people have been chosen by HaShem (God) to be a special people for Him. And, they were, when they believed in and followed Him. But, when they were disobedient to HaShem, He would punish them and often severely by allowing nations like the Assyrians, Babylonians and Romans to kill them, take them captive and scatter them all over the world. And yet, both the writers of the Hebrew Scriptures (Ezekiel 37) and the New Testament (Romans 9-11) speak of a day when Israel will be reborn as a nation “in one day” (Isaiah 66:8) which was fulfilled on May 14, 1948.

And so, I believe Bible prophecy has been fulfilled in relation to Israel and will continue to be fulfilled, though sadly, with judgment, as they continue to reject Jesus (Yeshua) as their Savior and Messiah. See Daniel 9-12.

Now, you may be wondering, “What does B’esrat HaShem mean?” It means: “With the help of God.” And, with the help of God, we will find salvation in Jesus Who died on a cross for our sins, was buried and raised from the dead to forgive all our sins and give us eternal life (I Corinthians 15:1-4; John 3:16). And, with the help of God, we will also “receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). Blessings and prayers, Doug (11/26/21)

TRUE or FALSE?

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy, windy and cool (37 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in the dark, I did not see any of God’s creatures, but did see a friend on a bike!

Here’s an interesting headline I saw in yesterday’s news: “Doctor Issues Dire Warning to the Vaccinated: You Are Now Patented Property.”

In the article, I read: “For the first time in history, mRNA vaccines are being utilized on a mass scale. Global governments demand every man, woman and child receive the experimental infusion. Authorities claim such measures are for ‘public safety, yet the drug manufacturers admit their products do not prevent transmission or infection. Reports of adverse reactions reach unprecedented heights with every passing day. Countries with the highest inoculation rates have recorded significant spikes in heart conditions, blood clots and strokes. Many concerned bystanders who oppose the medical mandate (that’s me) are asking themselves: why the push? One Argentinian researcher believes she knows the answer.” And, who is this researcher?

Her name is Dr. Chinda Brandolino who is “a healthcare professional who specializes in lymphology, phlebology, and occupational medicine. As more patients became immunized, she grew increasingly disturbed. An alarming number suffered severe and debilitating complications. While observing these troubling afflictions, the physician began to study messenger ribonucleic acid and its effects on genetics. A diligent investigation led her to a specific case from 2013. In the Supreme Court ruling of Association of Molecular Pathology versus Myriad LLC, lawmakers declared human genomes altered by mRNA vaccines can be patented.” During a recent conference she elaborated on the decree’s dire implications:

“When you modify the genome with an adenovirus vaccine, that vaccinated person is already a transgenic – a transhuman person. According to what is legally established in international law, it will be the property of the owner of the patent. But the most dramatic thing of all is that because transhuman, that person will not be considerd human according to the Human Rights we know. The situation is extremely serious and I have the feeling that people do not realize the seriousness of what we are facing. It is not only the diseases the vaccine is going to produce, often fatal, but also the fact the survivors will have a modified genome and that this modification will be passed on to their descendants. Because their genome is modified, that modification is patented. Everything that is patented belongs to the patent owner.”

Wow! Wow! Wow! True or False? Now, I don’t understand all of the article from a medical perspective. However, I do understand it from a biblical and prophetical perspective which you can read about in Revelation 13. One more reason to believe we are nearing the “end times” when, I believe, Jesus will come for His bride, the Church, and take her out of this mess to heaven which then leads to the coming of the Antichrist and what Jesus called, in Matthew 24:21, the “great tribulation” and “the worst time in human history.” If you dare, your can read about it in Revelation 6-19.

So, you have a choice: Believe in and follow Jesus until He comes. Or, face the “worst time in human history.” Hoping and praying you will believe in Jesus, His death, burial and resurrection, to save you from your sins and give you eternal life. Then, join His army and watch, wait, work, witness for and walk with Him until He comes. Blessings in Jesus, Doug (11/25/21)
