January 7, 2014
Welcome to another new year to all! …
And from what I am seeing through the unfolding events around the world, what a
year it looks to be! … I know I’ve said this several times in the past,  and here I go again. …. It is amazing how
fast prophetic signs are accelerating … and it’s by the moment! … Not too
long ago I would end up with a few stories each week that I felt directly related
to end-time prophesied events … but now? … There’s so many that I have to
‘decide’ what to bring to you … Please pray that I discern correctly when
making these decisions. ….
Let’s get to it! … After much prayer
& seeking, I truly believe these next 12-18 months are going to be critical
concerning God’s timeline of end-time events preceding his Son’s return. … Am
I going to set a date? … Absolutely not! … Jesus himself said that even he
didn’t know, but only the Father. … (Matthew 24:36) …. However, Jesus did
tell us that we would recognize the season (verses 33-34). ….
So let’s take a quick glimpse at just
some of the ‘events’ that illustrate this ‘season’ .. and just how short the
time left really is ….. 
 
*The Roman Empire ‘reviving’ — This, of course, is the EU and will
eventually be the political platform for the soon-coming world leader .. the
anti-christ. … (Daniel 7, 8. 9, 11 & Revelation 13)
 
*The King of the East militarizing & growing in economic strength —
China & her allies (Revelation 9 & 16)
 
*The King of the North growing more powerful — Russia & her allies
(Ezekiel 38 & 39)
 
*World Church unifying — The Vatican & Rome will be the base, and
this ‘church’, led by the false prophet, will be the ally of the antichrist for
42 months (Revelation 17)
 
*World’s Economy on the brink of an epic crash — This lends to the
perfect scenario for the coming world ruler to seize control …
 
*Israel surrounded — The most ‘hated’ people on the face of the earth
are once again under tremendous pressure just to survive … and are being
abandoned by her few allies at this very time … the U..S. included (Zechariah
12) 
 
*Daniel’s visions that were to be ‘sealed up’ until the last days at
which time they could be understood — They are now unfolding .. examples
include people “running to and fro” … “knowledge will
increase” …. no question these things are happening right before our
eyes … (Daniel 12)
 
*Christian persecution on a rapid increase — Jesus said we would be
hated in this world (John 15:18)
 
*Pestilences such as earthquakes, volcanoes & crazy weather patterns
occurring much more frequently and with much higher intensity … “Birth
Pains” (Matthew 24:8)
 
*Famine — I remind you of the article we shared just last week where it
said that aquifers are diminishing at 
record paces … The Colorado River doesn’t even make it to the end …
reservoirs are dust bowls are across the U.S. southwest … the list goes
on  (Matthew 24:7)
 
*Damascus in utter chaos — Isaiah prophesied its utter destruction
(17:1)
 
*The rebuilding of the Jewish temple — There are all sorts of stories
flying around concerning this very subject. … We know that the Temple was
destroyed in AD 70 by the Romans, but several scriptures indicate a physical
temple in existence at the end … It will happen (Daniel 9 & Matthew 24)
 
*The fall of the world’s remaining super-power — Besides America NOT
being specifically mentioned in scripture, in order for the world government to
come into existence there cannot be a super-power standing in the way — We are
now witnessing America coming under God’s judgement for its sinful ways. ….
Examples including the killing of some 56 million babies (see Jeremiah
1:5),  the open acceptance of
homosexuality (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 & Romans 1:27), the blatant removal of
God from our society .— and what are we witnessing because of this? … The
family structure crumbling, suicide rates sky-rocketing, drug & alcohol use
increasing, chaos in the streets (2 Timothy 3:1-4), financial meltdowns in many
cities & states, crazy weather tearing through many parts of the country
… Katrina, Sandy, and now this massive ‘polar vortex’ which is breaking
dozens & dozens of cold-weather temperatures all across the midwest &
east coast as of this writing ,,,, then there’s the national debt of some $17+
Trillion that we can NEVER pay back ….. You get the picture … (I plan on
expounding more on the demise of America next week) ….
I could keep going but I think it is
clear that we are on the verge of incredible happenings in this world! … One
would have to be brain-dead NOT to see this! …. But sadly, most people are
…. oblivious to what is about to befall them and their way of life. … But
again, this is prophetic! .. Look to Matthew 24:37-39 … Here the Lord himself
tells us how it will be in these final days …like the “Days of
Noah” where people were in total denial of Noah’s warnings … I mean,
here was a guy building a boat on the side of a mountain! … You would thing
they would either lock him up, or at least ask him what was going on …. but
no … and we all know what happened … It started ‘raining’ .. just like it’s
about to right now! 
One more quick point … on top of these
prophecies I just mentioned is the coming of the “Blood Moons” ……
(April 15, 2014 through September 15,
2015 … Now I’m not going to speculate as to how they fit into the end-time
prophecies, but the history of these events is quite profound. …. There have
been three that were documented … 1492
.. 1948-49 … 1967 … all of which saw
major happenings involving Israel and the Jewish people. … Will there be this
time? … We will know soon enough ….. but just adding this one concept to
everything else just makes it more ……. (you pick the word) …
The hoofbeats of the “Four Horsemen
of the Apocalypse can be heard if you just listen! …. What I hope & pray
is that by sharing what the Bible says concerning the times we live in, it will
wake more people up to the fact that WE ARE OUT OF TIME! …. We need to tell
our friends & family … show them what the Bible says! … Illustrate to
them the ‘picture’ of what God has laid out for us concerning these times ….
It may just change someone’s eternal future ….
Ok, I’m done ranting … for a bit
anyway. … I look forward to spending this year with each of you. … Please
share with friends & family, and write me a comment if something is on your
mind. … I do get quite a few inquiries on my personal e-mail, but sometimes,
on-site comments can help other folks as well. … Interestingly, many of us
seem to always have the same questions anyway …. That’s it …. so …
Until next time,
Red
Note: Every Tuesday evening, 6:45 PM, I
lead an end-times study at Chehalem Valley Baptist Church in Newberg. … We
come together and discuss news headlines concerning these times we are living
in as they relate to Scripture.
…. and tonight, we will be starting the
Book of Daniel. … So, if you live in the area & are interested in this
type of stuff, I guarantee you will have a great time. … We have some ‘very
interesting’ people coming. and we have a lot of fun …
God Bless You …..

Comment from article:  “Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military build-up. … An article in the Associated Press confirmed an open P.O. by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.  The report also says the department has acquired heavily armed tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets.”
….. I’ve been thinking .. and saying this for quite some time now! … Why else on earth would they need all this military stuff? … Now with reports of cities & states in such fiscal dire straits .. along with ‘vigilante’ groups forming due to budget shortages, it all adds up …..

*Economic Collapse – “Bad Omen? .. The Stock Market has officially entered ‘Crazy Town’ territory”

*World Net Daily – “Japan radiation poisoning America? … New concerns hitting U.S. Pacific Coast”

Until next time,

December 31, 2013
Well here we are at the end of another
year … and what a year it has been! … In all the time that I’ve served as a
‘watchman’ for the Lord, I’ve not seen one yet to match it. ……… I’ve many
times referred to Christ’ teachings concerning the “birth pains” we
will experience in these final days before His glorious return …. which
simply means the increase in intensity and frequency of prophesied events such
as satanic deception of the truth, wars and rumors of wars, kingdoms rising
against kingdoms, famines, earthquakes, and all sorts of pestilences,   (see Matthew 24:4-8) ….  One would have to be spiritually and
physically blind not to see that this is exactly what is taking place ….
Knowing these “birth pains”
will continue to rapidly increase as we go forward in the coming year, I feel
an urgent need to encourage each of you to make a concerted effort to
strengthen your belief in the one and only thing that can deliver us from the
coming wrath … that being our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. … Quite
honestly, I don’t think we can even imagine how difficult it is going to get
before it is over. … Jesus said in Matthew 24:22 that … “If those days
had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect
those days will be shortened.”  ….
Pretty scary! ….
Speaking of this needed faith, I want to
share an example …. I received this following story from a brother &
sister in Christ. … When I read it, it moved me greatly, and now I want to
share it with each of you. … I pray it will touch you as much as it touched
me ….. 
“After a few of the usual Sunday
evening hymns, the Church’s pastor slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit
and, before he gave his sermon for the evening, he briefly introduced a guest
minister who was in the service that evening.
“In the introduction, the pastor
told the congregation that the guest minister was one of his dearest childhood
friends and that he wanted him to have a few moments to greet the Church and
share whatever he felt would be appropriate for the service. …… With that,
an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit and began to speak ….. 
” ‘A father, his son, and a friend
of his son were sailing off the Pacific Coast,’ he began.  ‘when a fast approaching storm blocked any
attempt to get back to the shore.  The
waves were so high, that even though the father was an experienced sailor, he
could not keep the boat upright and the three were swept into the ocean as the
boat capsized.’
“The old man hesitated for a moment,
making eye contact with two teenagers who were, for the first time since the
service began, looking somewhat interested in his story.
“The aged minister continued with
his story, …  ‘Grabbing a rescue line,
the father had to make the most excruciating decision of his life:  to which boy would he throw the other end of
the life-line? He only had seconds to make the decision.  The father knew that his son was a Christian
and he, also, knew that his son’s friend was not.  The agony of his decision could not be
matched by the torrent of waves.
” ‘As the father yelled out, ‘I love
you, son!’ .. he threw out the life-line to his son’s friend.  By the time the father had pulled the friend
back to the capsized boat, his son had disappeared beneath the raging swells
into the black of night.  His body was
never recovered.’
“By this time, the two teenagers
were sitting up straight in the pew, anxiously waiting for the next words to
come out of the old minister’s mouth.
” ‘The father,’ he continued,  ‘knew his son would step into eternity with
Jesus and he could not bear the thought of his son’s friend stepping into an
eternity without Jesus.  Therefore, he
sacrificed his son to save his son’s friend.’
” ‘How great is the love of God that
He should do the same for us.  Our
heavenly Father sacrificed His only begotten Son so that we could be
saved.  I urge you to accept His offer to
rescue you and take a hold of the life-line he is throwing out to you in this
service.’
” … With that, the old man turned
and sat back down in his chair as silence filled the room. … The pastor again
walked slowly to the pulpit and delivered a brief sermon with an invitation at
the end. .. However, no one responded to the appeal.
“Within minutes after the service
ended, the two teenagers were at the old man’s side.  ‘That was a nice story,’ politely stated one
of them, ‘but I don’t think it was very realistic for a father to give up his only
son’s life in hopes that the other boy would become a Christian.’
” ‘Well, you’ve got a point there,’
the old man replied, glancing down at his worn Bible.  A big smile broadened his narrow face.  He once again looked up at the boys and said,
‘It sure isn’t realistic, is it?  But,
I’m standing here today to tell you that the story gives me a glimpse of what
it must have been for God to give up His Son for me.  You see … I was that father and your pastor
is my son’s friend.’ “
Wow! …. Stop and think about this for
just a moment! …  Do I have that kind
of faith? …. Do you? …. But I truly believe this is the kind of faith we
will need in the coming days to survive this quickly ‘spinning-out-of-control’
world. …
So here’s what we need to do … We need
to stand together in ALL things! … We need to earnestly pray for one another
each and every day! … We need to get on our knees and ask God what it is we
need to do right now to reach as many as we can! …….  Will we face opposition? … You bet! … and
it will only increase as we draw ever nearer … 2 Peter 3:3-4 says this …
“First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will
come, scoffing and following their own desires. 4) They will say, ‘Where is
this coming he promised?  Ever since our
fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of
creation.” … Then in verse 9, he concludes … “The Lord is not
slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.  He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to
perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
We have a prophetically ‘tough’ year
ahead of us, so let us first support one another, and then do as much as we can
to reach those who are ‘asleep’ ….  May
our great God richly bless you and keep you in these coming days, and know that
I will be praying for each and every one of you every day!
The Lord is coming back at any moment!
…. Hallelujah! …. but until then ….
Until next time,
Red
