THE GREAT RESET!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (26 degrees ) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw a record 4 dogs! Thank You, Jesus!

This morning’s headline from Dr. Joseph Mercola got my attention: “Globalist Cabal Meets Again to Prepare for World Domination.”

In the article, Dr. Mercola reported: “Attendees at the exclusive 2023 World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos Switzerland, included FBI director Chris Wray, M16 chief Richard Moore, Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg, the CEOs of Amazon, BlackRock and Pfizer, Gates Foundation executives, Cybernetics School director Genevieve Bell, the Publisher of the New York Times, CNN anchor Fareed Zakaria, Ukrainian President Zelensky (Note: I thought he was fighting a war against Russia) and a long list of presidents, prime ministers, ministers, senators, House representatives, commissioners, governors, mayors, bankers, royalty, officials from the UN and Red Cross, as well as military, customs (interesting?) and space agency (very interesting!) officials.”

Dr. Mercola continued: “The people gathering at this meeting, which is by invitation only (Note: I didn’t get one), are among the ones deciding how the rest of us are going to live our lives, what rights we’ll have regardless of local constitutions, and how the world is to be run. The WEF works closely with the World Health Organization and the United Nations) to make sure the UN’s sustainable development goals are met. The sustainable development goals are the foundation upon which the WEF’s Great Reset agenda is built. The WEF is also helping the WHO (not the rock group), making it a de facto one world governing body.” Wow! Sounds a lot like Revelation 13 to me. Stay tuned!

So, what are we, as Christians, to do in light of all this scary news of a “New World Order?” Answer: The usual: watching, waiting, working, witnessing for, walking with and worshiping Jesus until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, simply agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe He died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). And, if you do, I’ll see you in heaven if not sooner. Blessings, Doug (1/24/23)

ROMANS 1 – PART TWO!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cold (19 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw: a bunny and a deer!

Two days ago (1/21), I said I was going to send you Part 2 of Romans 1. I forgot. Sorry about that. You may remember, from Part 1 (Romans 1:18-24), the apostle Paul wrote about some of the consequences of homosexual behavior: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men/women who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.” The result: “God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them (verse 24).”

Paul continued in verses 25-32, “For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions, for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”

Paul also wrote in I Corinthians 6:9-11, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed; but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

Did you get that? There is hope for those who are homosexuals, lesbians, transgenders, etc. in Christ. Remember, Paul wrote, in Romans 3:23, 24, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His (God’s) grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. In other words, as sinners, we all deserve to go to hell for eternity. But, through faith in Christ, His death, burial and resurrection, we can go to heaven! Alleluia! Glory to God!

Please know I am praying I will see you in heaven. And, if you have any questions, please email me (frolics@att.net). Love and blessings in Christ, Doug (1/23/23)

TRANSHUMANISM!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (23 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in a light snow, I saw: 12 deer which tied a record and a dog!

Are you familiar with the word “transhumanism?” I wasn’t until this past year when I discovered that “transhumanism is the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limits, especially by means of science and technology.” Does the phrase, “follow the science,” ring a bell?

Dr. Joseph Mercola, in today’s article, “Big Data, Transhumanism and Why the Singularity May Be Faked,” reported: “Silicon Valley is essentially fused with the national security state. Silicon Valley is now also entering into joint ventures with medical companies, and many of these ventures are financed by groups like In-Q-Tel, which is the CIA’s venture capital arm.

There’s a concerted effort to frame transhumanism – which is really the new eugenics – as health care. Joint ventures involving Big Tech, Big Pharma and the security state typically focus on products and services that normalize and further the transhumanist agenda.

Food and agriculture are also being tossed into the mix. The U.S. government has launched a ‘Food is Medicine’ program, which is yet another way for the government to seize control of the population. Food as medicine will be used to get you into their control system, and keep you there.

In 2023 and 2024, watch out for the rollout of central bank digital currencies (CBDBs). Its crucial that as many people as possible refuse the system during the initial voluntary phase. Once it becomes mandatory, it cannot be stopped and all freedoms will be lost.” Note: Sounds more and more to me like the “mark of the beast” system of Revelation 13.

Lord willing, tomorrow, I will bring you an interview between Dr. Mercola and investigative journalist Whitney Webb about her two-volume book series, ‘One Nation Under Blackmail.'”

Yes, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, He is coming! Hurray! I can’t wait. But, wait I (we) must and watch, work, witness for, walk with and worship Jesus until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, please don’t put it off; simply agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe He died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life( John 3:16). And, if you do, I’ll see you in heaven! Blessings, Doug (P.S. – Pray for brother Dick). Thanks!

ROMANS 1- PART ONE!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (25 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw: 2 deer and a dog! Thank You, Jesus!

This headline from yesterday’s “Christian Post,” really got my attention: “Research Shows U.S. the Worst Country (in the world) for Pushing Extreme Gender Ideology and Sex Change Surgeries on Youth.”

Let me remind you, in case you forgot or didn’t know, God’s Word (the Bible) says, in Genesis 1:27, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” So, you might say, “I don’t believe that and I should be able to do with my body whatever I want?”

Now, let me tell you what God said would happen if we disregard His Word on this subject: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men/women who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lust of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them (Romans 1:18-24).

Lord willing, I will give you Part 2 (Romans 1:25-32) tomorrow. In the meantime, over the last two days, there have been two “strong” (6.2 and 6.8) earthquakes in or near Guadeloupe in the Caribbean Sea and Argentina. As many of you know, I have been charting earthquakes with the help of the USGS for some 17 years, primarily because Jesus said they would be increasing in frequency and intensity, like “birth pains,” before His return (Matthew 24:7, 8).

All I can says is “God is so patient.” And why? The apostle Peter said it well in his second letter (3:9): “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” Did you get that? He is waiting for those of you who are lost without Christ to “come to repentance” which means You agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) Who died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). And, if you are a believer in Jesus, be patient and keep watching, waiting, working, witnessing for, walking with and worshiping Jesus until He comes. Lord willing, I’ll write to you tomorrow. Blessings with love and prayers, Doug (1/21/23)

NUCLEAR WAR?

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (28 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I did not see any of God’s creatures, but was thankful to God I could still walk!

This morning headline from Reuters in the Jerusalem Post really got my attention: “Putin Ally Medvedev Warns NATO of Nuclear War If Russia Is Defeated in Ukraine!”

Jesus, in Matthew 24: 6 and Mark 13:7, told His disciples that, before His return, “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of war.” And, as an example of both, we know that Russia first threatened to invade Ukraine (a rumor of war); then, went to war with Ukraine. And, as of today, the war continues on with more nations involved and no end in sight. And now, the Russian leaders are threatening nuclear war if they are on the verge of defeat. And, I don’t have to tell you, we don’t want that to happen.

We do know from Scripture, particularly Revelation 6-19, that there will be a number of future wars: one of which will “kill one fourth of the earth’s population (2 billion people) with sword (war) and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8) and another which will kill “a third of mankind” (another 2 billion people) which John recorded in Revelation 9:13-16.

Scary stuff! Now, personally, I believe (and I could be wrong) in a “pre-trib rapture of the church when Jesus will come at an unknown time in the future to take His bride, the church, out of this mess to heaven before the “worst time in human history” (Matthew 24:21, 22) which you can read about, if you dare, in Revelation 6-19.

Question: “What are we, as believers in Jesus, to do in the meantime?” Answer: “Watch, wait, work, witness for, walk with and worship Jesus until He comes!” And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, simply agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) Who died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). Blessings, Doug (1/20/23)

WHOSE WHO?

Good morning, blog readers, from rainy and cool (38 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I got soaked and ended it earlier than normal! Thank You, Jesus, for a warm house and warm clothes!

If I were to ask you, “When you think of “The Who,” what name comes to mind? Most of us who grew up in the 60s would say, “An English rock group.” Unlike me, you might even know the names of the four members of the group: Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Keith Moon and Pete Townsend who were inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in 1990.

Nowadays, there is another “Who” of which we ought to know something about to prepare us for the future (and maybe even the present). It is the World Health Organization about which Dr. Joseph Mercola gives us some very important information in a segment of his January 15, 2023 article: “The Most Important Topics of Our Time.”

Dr. Mercola wrote: “One of the most serious threats is the globalist cabal (secret society) pursuit of a one world totalitarian government through the World Health Organization, under the guise of global biosecurity. The WHO has drafted a global treaty on pandemic preparedness that would grant it absolute power over global biosecurity, such as the power to implement digital identities/vaccine passports, mandatory vaccinations, travel restrictions, standardized medical care and more. The treaty did not pass this year, but will most likely pass in 2023.

The treaty will change the global landscape and strip you of some of your most basic rights and freedoms. It’s a direct attack on the sovereignty of its member states, as well as a direct attack on your bodily autonomy. With this treaty in place, all member nations will be subject to the WHO’s dictates. If the WHO says every person on the planet needs to have a vaccine passport and digital identity to ensure vaccination compliance, then that’s what every country will be forced to implement, even if the people have rejected such plans using local democratic processes.”

Sounds a lot like Revelation 13 to me when the Antichrist will take over the world, declare that he alone is god to be worshiped and obeyed. The apostle John wrote about him and his “sidekick” (the false prophet) in Revelation 13:15-18, “And there was given to him (the false prophet) to give breath to the image of the beast (the Antichrist), that the image of the beast might even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead, and he provides that no one should buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty six (666).”

Sadly, most people, including many so-called “Christians” are either scared or uninterested in Bible prophecy. And, even though there is some pretty frightening stuff on the horizon, God lays the future out for us in places like Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. And, if the Bible is not your thing, then get a copy of my book: “Birth Pains: An Introduction to Bible Prophecy” which is available on Amazon.

Yes, dearly beloved, Jesus is coming! Are you ready? Do you know where you will spend eternity? You can know for sure by taking God at His Word and agreeing with Him you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) Who died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). Love, prayers and blessings, Doug (1/17/23)

SIGNS of the SON and in the SUN!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (37 degrees) where, on my morning walk, I saw: a cat and a deer! Thank You, Jesus!

This headline, from today’s EarthSky, really got my attention this morning: “Excitement Builds!”

C. Alex Young and Raul Cortes posted: “Sun activity is moderate with three M flares, including an eruptive event with an earth-directed CME (Coronal Mass Ejection). The Earth-directed CME is expected to reach us on January 17, 2023 (tomorrow). Here are the three M flares. Notice their ascending order of strength!

M3.5 at 20:06 UTC on January 14

M46 at 20:37 UTC on January 14

M6 at 20:37 on January 15

All three M flares produced radio blackouts over the sun-facing side of Earth. The next few days could get exciting, perhaps even more exciting than the past week of X flares. It could be a week of flares and auroras. Stay tuned! Note: One of my favorite expressions in regards to Bible prophecy and the coming of Christ.

For instance, the Lord Jesus told His disciples: “And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man (the Lord Jesus) coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:25-28).” Stay tuned!!!!!

Yes, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, these are exciting and, somewhat scary, times in which we live, as we wait for Jesus to return. So, let us fix our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) and keep them there while watching, waiting, working, witnessing for, walking with and worshiping 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 Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe He died on a cross for your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). And, if you do, then I’ll see you in heaven for eternity. Blessings, Doug (1/16/23)

2023 SHORTAGES!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cold (25 degrees) Wisconsin where, as I opened the front door to begin my walk, I was greeted by a doe and her two fawns on our front sidewalk! Thank You, Jesus!

This headline, from Dr. Joseph Mercola, caught my eye this morning: “The Most Important Topics of Our Time.”

Dr. Mercola wrote: “Supply chain disruptions causing food and energy shortages appear inevitable, as both industries are being intentionally targeted and dismantled under the guise of combating climate change, and global economic collapse is a mathematical certainty. The economic collapse will usher in programmable central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), which will be used to control your behavior and your health.”

Sound familiar? It should as, over the last two years, worldwide governments, including our own, have paraded all kinds of so-called “experts” before us to control our behavior and health during the pandemic.

Actually, Jesus told His disciples, in Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8 and Luke 21:10 that, before His return, “there will be famines (food shortages) and earthquakes in various places.” Oh, and one more shortage/famine we are now seeing and will continue to see before Jesus returns. The prophet Amos, in Amos 8:11, wrote these alarming words from the Lord: “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord God, “when I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, but rather for hearing the words of the Lord.” Sadly, we are now living in a world and country where there is and, I believe, will continue to be, a “famine of hearing the words of the Lord.”

Dr. Mercola continues: “The globalist cabal (secret society) is also pursuing a one world totalitarian government through the World Health Organization, under the guise of global biosecurity. Inside the transhumanist (you can be God) movement is fusing medicine with Silicon Valley and the national security state. There’s a concerted effort to frame transhumanism – which is really the new eugenics (Webster: “the movement devoted to improving the human species through the control of hereditary factors in mating.”).

All part of Satan’s plan to be “God!” However, we know from God’s Word, he will ultimately fail and be cast into the “lake of fire” for eternity by the Lord Jesus (Revelation 20:10).

Enough to keep us awake at night. But, remember, what Peter told us, in I Peter 3:14, 15, “But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”

Time for worship. Got to go. Blessings with love and prayers, Doug (1/15/23)

ANECDOTALS: A MUST SEE!

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cold (21 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk, I saw: a deer! Thank You, Jesus!

Over the last couple of years, I have constantly heard the so-called “experts” tells us the COVID-19 vaccines were “safe and effective.” But, then, over the same period of time, I started to read about and see for myself many of the different and horrifying kinds of reactions to the vaccines, including death, and would often say to my wife, “I wish people could see what I have been seeing. Then, maybe they would think twice about believing the so-called “experts.”

And then, this morning, I received this article from Dr. Joseph Mercola: ‘Anecdotals’ Documentary!” In the article, Dr. Mercola reported: “The film “Anecdotals” provides a glimpse into the lives of people who have suffered significant adverse reactions from COVID-19 shots.

Those who spoke about their shot-related injuries have been shamed, ridiculed and labeled unethical. Those injured by the shots have been largely abandoned by the mainstream medical community; their medical issues have been politicized, while society provides no empathy.

With no programs in place to help those injured by COVID-19 shots, and many doctors afraid to even acknowledge the shot’s connection to patients’ symptoms, many of those harmed have nowhere to turn for help. The film calls for an open dialogue and a movement from humanity to acknowledge the risks of COVID-19 shots, as well as those who are suffering due to them.

People who have been harmed by COVID-19 shots have suffered a range of medical issues – everything from death and permanent disability (see Senator Ron Johnson’s interview with Dr. Joel Walskog) to pericarditis, nerve damage and overwhelming fatigue. While their symptoms vary, they share several common themes: Abandonment, Shame and Hopelessness. Bringing attention to the issue – and to the people whose lives have changed drastically since receiving a COVID-19 shot is the first step to recovery. The film ‘Anecdotals’ does just that, providing a glimpse into the lives of people who have suffered significant adverse reactions from the COVID-19 shots.”

Oh, and one more thought. Did you know that this world, including this country, is rapidly heading towards a one-world economy, a one-world religion and a one-world government under the Antichrist who will, at some time in the future, sign a seven-year “peace treaty” with Israel, break it halfway through, desecrate the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and declare to the world that he alone is God and to be worshiped (Daniel 9:27; II Thessalonians 2:3, 4; Revelation 13).

Yes, dearly beloved in Christ, He is coming! So, let us continue to watch, wait, work, witness for, walk with and worship Him until He comes. And, if you are not a believer in Jesus, simply agree with God you are a sinner who needs a Savior Who is Jesus (Romans 3:23, 24) and believe He died on a cross for Your sins, was buried and raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4) to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life (John 3:16). Blessings with love, Doug (1/14/23)

PROPHECY or SPECULATION?

Good morning, blog readers, from cloudy and cool (26 degrees) Wisconsin where, on my morning walk in a cold, north wind, I saw: a bunny! Thank You, Jesus!

Pastor Rick Warren once said: “Bible prophecy is none of our business!” Hmmmm! 30% of Scripture is “none of our business?” Interestingly enough, as I was reading through the Bible, I found three places where God tell us “not to add to or take anything away from His Word (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:5, 6 and Revelation 22:18, 19)” which, get this, God said in the beginning, middle and end of the Bible.

And, one more Scripture of importance: Revelation 19:10 where an angel told the apostle John: “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” After all, the Old Testament points to the first coming of Christ; the New, to His second coming! William MacDonald, in his “Believer’s Bible Commentary,” wrote: “This means that the true purpose of prophecy is to bear testimony to the Person and work of Jesus.”

For example, God told us, in Ezekiel 38:3-5, 12, that Rosh (Russia) and Persia (Iran) would, along with a host of other nations, invade Israel “to capture spoil and to seize plunder.” Here are a couple of headlines from recent news articles that speak of this future alliance:

#1. Jewish News Syndicate: “Moscow and Tehran moving towards ‘defense partnership.'”

#2. Breaking Defense: “Iran asking Russia to sell military
