08:20 pm - Christianity: The Way to Salvation
Step 1: God created man for a purpose.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
John 3:16-17 (KJV)

Step 2: We are all sinners punishable by death.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 (KJV)

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 (KJV)

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27 (KJV)

The Bible declares that we all sinners who are in need of a Savior. Those who refuse to believe that Jesus is the Messiah will die in their sins.

“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” John 8:24 (KJV)

Those who don’t believe and don’t obey Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will be punished with everlasting destruction.

“When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels. In flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 (KJV)

Those who are unsaved at the time of their death will spend an eternity in hell.

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36 (KJV)

Sounds pretty dire, right? I know people don’t like the topic of hell, but I’m not allowed to sugarcoat or cover up the gospel. There is a literal heaven and there is a literal hell. However the good news is that there is a way to salvation, and salvation is a free gift for anyone who chooses it.

Step 3: Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. There is no other way to get into heaven other than through Him.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV)

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (KJV)

Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins when he died on the cross for us. Jesus finished his work on the cross for us.

“So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, ‘It is finished!’ And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:30 (NKJV)

Salvation cannot be achieved through good works. No amount of good work can cover up the fact that we are all sinners. That is why God had to send Jesus to take the punishment of our sins.

“But God commandeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (KJV)

God paved the way to salvation for everyone through the precious blood of His son Jesus Christ.

“Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” Romans 5:9 (KJV)

Salvation is a free gift that can only be received. It cannot be earned.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV)

Jesus made a once-for-all sacrifice. His blood is precious enough to cover all our sins.

“And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.” Hebrews 9:15

Step 4: In order to receive God’s free gift of salvation, we must individually accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.

John 3:7 is probably one of the most important verses of the Bible. This is the one crucial step that so many Christians and churches overlook. You must be “born again” in order to be saved. No amount of church attendance or good works can get you into heaven.

“Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:7 (KJV)

Baptism alone does not save you because it is an external act. This applies to anyone who has ever been baptized as an infant, child, or adult. You have to make a personal act of inviting Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Saviour. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit and be saved.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” John 3:5 (KJV)

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Romans 10:9-13 (KJV)

Now that you’re still alive, you can make the decision to accept Jesus Christ right now. You must confess out loud and believe with all your heart. Please do not wait until it’s too late.

Prayer of Invitation

Please pray the following prayer to be saved right now:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven,

I believe you came to earth and died on the Cross for my sins. I believe you rose again on the 3rd day and went back to Heaven. I personally accept you Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I confess all my sins to you. Please forgive me of all my sins. Clean my heart, white as snow. Come live in my heart. Make me a child of the King, a new creature in Christ. In your precious name I ask this, and thank you for saving me. Amen.”

If you have just prayed the Prayer of Invitation, then congratulations! You are now a born-again Christian saved by your Lord Jesus Christ.

God promised that He will resurrect those who believed in His Son.

“And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:40 (KJV)

Step 5: Once you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you must continue to grow in Christ.

Grow in Christ by doing the following:

1.)Get to know the Lord through prayer.
2.)Read the Bible daily. Get the King James Version Bible.
3.)Obey the Lord.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15 (KJV)

“I [Jesus] tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3 (KJV)

“For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.” Hebrews 10:26 (KJV)

4.)Join a local church or fellowship that is centered on Christ.

5.)Witness to others when you are spiritually ready.

09:18 am - Obama is an Evil Dictator
If you think that we still live in a democracy in the United States, then you are gravely mistaken. Last Thursday, Obama tossed our freedom out of the window. For the first time in American history, he gave amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants by breaking the law. The extra executive power was never bestowed upon him by the U.S. Constitution. The constitution no longer applies to him anymore. Obama should be impeached or thrown in jail for what he just did. He just committed a crime that is worse than the worst felony. How can you grant work permits and citizenships to illegal immigrants? They came here ILLEGALLY which means that they weren't supposed to be here in the first place.
Why hasn't anything been done to Obama? He doesn't suffer any consequences for breaking the law? Why do we have to obey Obamacare but Obama doesn't have to obey the constitution? Everyone should be outraged over this. Yet no one is doing anything to curb his power. No one.
I am so livid and furious over this. Obama rules this country like a king. He is an evil dictator. All he does is dictates and he gets whatever he wants, however he wants, and whenever he wants. This is not a democracy. This is a dictatorship. This is exactly what Hitler did when he rose to power. Mark my word, our country is over. It doesn't exist anymore as we know it. Sooner or later, Obama will suspend the 2016 elections. He can run for a 3rd term. He can declare martial law. He has been able to get away with whatever he wants. He is not the type of person who will ever humble himself by stepping out of the white house. Our country is gone for good. If he could get away with dictating and breaking the law, then he can pretty much do just about anything and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it because that's what he just did. He rules with unlimited power just like what a dictator would.

09:09 am - Rapture Dream
I had a disturbing dream back in June 2014. It comes in 3 parts:

1.) "I saw the government ripping away infants, toddlers, and young kids away from their parents. If parents don't give up their kids to the government, then the government will shoot their kids on the spot. I heard millions of screams from around the world."

I told Edgar about this and we wondered what it could be. He told me about the Central American parents sending their kids illegally to the U.S. Our government is blatantly ripping kids away from Central American parents by promising a better future.

Why would parents be so blind as to send their kids away like that? I believe that these illegal kids are being used as pawns for a greater purpose. Perhaps someday if they want freebies from the government, then they have to get the Mark of the Beast. That goes for everyone who's on government entitlement whether if it's welfare, healthcare, social security, disability, and unemployment.

The mass influx of illegals is to crush our financial system. It will be unsustainable. We will not have enough resource such as food and healthcare to take care of all of them. They shouldn't even be here in the first place.

2.) "I saw the government giving away freebies such as iPhones and iPads away to tweens and teens. The teens now think that the government is so much cooler than their parents. They became rebellious against their parents and swore allegiance to the government instead."

I've noticed a divide between parents and kids as they grow older because of all the crap they've been teaching in the public school system. Not only that, LAUSD is giving away free iPads to kids. Most parents don't have money to buy cool gadgets for their kids. With the public schools giving kids access to cool technology, kids are at the mercy to be brainwashed by whatever the school system wants to teach them. They will rebel against their parents like never before.

3.) "The Rapture has already happened. Very few people actually made it through the Rapture compared to the rest of the world. Everyone who was left behind had looks of despair upon their faces. I saw myself in a room with a bunch of Christians who were left behind. They turned to me for answers. One of them was a middle-aged Asian woman with a worried look on her face. She asked me, 'What just happened to us?' I answered her, 'Have you ever heard of the Rapture?' She shook her head. I said, 'You never heard of the Rapture? Did your church ever teach you about it? Did you ever read the Book of Revelation?' All of the Christians sadly shook their heads, felt ashamed, and appeared very clueless."

The Rapture will be a very sad day for all the Christians who were left behind. Most of the Christians who were left behind were "lukewarm" Christians. Even though a good number of them attended church, I was very shocked that they never heard of the Rapture and barely even read or let alone study the Bible. This describes the attitude of most Christians today.

Many pastors are too afraid to preach about heaven and hell or even the Rapture, Antichrist, and the Tribulation because they think these topics are too controversial. They only preach about the goodness of Jesus Christ and that's about it.

I remembered Andy at EFC LA was the first Christian who ever explained to me about the Rapture when I asked him about the Book of Revelation. That's why Bible studies are very important whether in group or individually. The problem with most of today's church is that no one wants to read the Bible or believe in the Bible anymore. They want to make their own way to heaven. They refuse to believe that abortion is murder and that gay marriage is wrong. They just want to fit in with the world, and that is why millions of Christians will be left behind after the Rapture. The worst part is that they will be devastated, shocked, and absolutely ashamed that they were left behind.

The good news is that these Christians were given a reality check, and they will want real answers badly. They will look for Christian experts who understand they Bible. They will refuse the Mark of the Beast and devote themselves to Christ but will have to pay a very heavy price in doing so.

The other group of Christians who were left behind were the ones who believed in the post-Tribulation Rapture. Many of them were Christian experts. But in order to go into the Rapture, you have to have faith in the Rapture. If you reject the pre-Tribulation Rapture, you will not be raptured no matter how much of a devout Christian you are.

That was the first time I ever received confirmation from a dream like this. I've read articles, but now I know for a fact that those who do not believe in the pre-Tribulation Rapture will not be raptured no matter what. God will not force anyone to believe in something they disagree with.

The last question is: Why was I left behind in my dream? There are one of two answers. Either I wasn't ready to go into the Rapture or God called me to minister to the lost after the Rapture. I wasn't upset at God at all. I was just happy to serve the Lord. Ideally, I do want to get raptured. I was happy to answer all these questions that the left behind Christians were asking me.

We were also hiding from the government. That is why if you hide in basements or hideouts, the government will not go out of their way to find you. But if you're out in the open or make yourself known, the government will capture you. In a post-Rapture society, all Christians and Jews have been declared enemies of the government. The saddest thing is that these Christians were absolutely clueless about Christianity their whole lives. If only they have known.

How to get into the Rapture: 1.) You need to be saved. 2.) You need to be holy and constantly seeking the Lord at all times. It does not mean that you need to quit your job and stop living. It just means that your heart must centered on serving Christ.

I also learned that the Rapture will be very sudden and unexpected. You need to be ready at every second at every moment of the day. Refrain from sin. Repent constantly. Catch yourself if you know you just sinned and ask for forgiveness. I used to make snarky remarks about people all the time as a bad habit. I find myself doing less and less of it.

All Christians must remain holy at all times. It sickens me that pot is being legalized thanks to Nobama. People lose their consciousness when they get high on drugs thus allowing demons to even possibly enter them. That is why many people die from using drugs. It's not just physical but spiritual as well. People are getting tattoos everywhere. Many have no idea that tattoos actually create portals for demons. They need to have it removed or pray over it to be sealed.

Yup, I learned lots from that dream. I just watched a recent Christian prophecy video that said that we only have "3 seconds" of God time left before the Rapture. It's getting very close. Don't freak out. At least we know how to be prepared.

02:41 pm - Are you rapture ready?

In light of the Rapture/Sudden Destruction being very likely to happen VERY, VERY SOON, I am feeling compelled to send out this tract, which I wrote several years ago, dealing with a VERY controversial issue. Probably 99% of Christians believe that ALL Christians are automatically going to participate in this first Rapture, without even searching the Scriptures to support their view. Only five of the ten virgins (they ALL had oil at one time, representing the Holy Spirit), were ready when their Lord came for them. At least half of all born-again Christians are NOT spiritually ready for our Lord's Return, and, therefore, will NOT be part of the Bride of Christ. Revelation says they had dirty robes (the only way to receive a robe of righteousness is to be saved), and had to make them white, during the Great Tribulation. The Rapture is a Reward for those whom the Lord finds worthy (that is Jesus' word, not mine).

Believe me, you do NOT want to choose that option. With only a very short time left, before the Rapture/Sudden Destruction (nuclear?), this should be our NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. We ALL need to be praying Luke 21:34--36, that the Lord would find us WORTHY.

PLEASE forward this email to every one of your family, and friends, especially those back-slid-den, compromising, worldly, UN-watchful, and lukewarm Christians. THERE ARE NO SCRIPTURES THAT EVEN SUGGEST THAT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE GOING IN THE RAPTURE. EXAMINE THE SCRIPTURES IN THE TRACT BELOW, TO SEE WHAT THE WORD OF GOD REALLY TEACHES, ON THIS ALL-IMPORTANT SUBJECT. BE SPIRITUALLY READY!!!

Are All Christians going in the Rapture? If, at some point in your life, you have asked Jesus Christ into your life, to become your personal Lord and Saviour, does this GUARANTEE that you are going in the Rapture? All signs point to the END OF THE AGE VERY, VERY SOON, SO THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION YOU COULD ASK YOURSELF IS, "AM I READY FOR THE RAPTURE?"

Before we go any further, let's clarify what the RAPTURE is. I Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

The Rapture is the GREAT ESCAPE from the horrendous Tribulation period that is SOON to come on ALL THE WORLD! It is for a body of born-again believers in Jesus Christ. The question is IS THE RAPTURE FOR ALL CHRISTIANS?

It is probably safe to say that an overwhelming majority of Christians reading this tract would say "YES". We are NOT addressing the issue of salvation, or "once saved, always saved," or "eternal security". For those of you who answered "Yes", CAN YOU FIND EVEN ONE SCRIPTURE THAT GUARANTEES THAT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE GOING IN THE RAPTURE?

Just because you have always believed something, or your Pastor believes it, or your church teaches it, DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE! IT MUST BE BASED ON THE WORD OF GOD! It is our fervent desire that ALL CHRISTIANS are going in the Rapture. If ALL CHRISTIANS are going in the Rapture, we have lost nothing by drawing closer to the Lord, to prepare for His Soon Return. If, on the other hand, we have a false sense of security, regarding our readiness for the Rapture, and we ignore the Lord's warnings to GET OUR HEARTS RIGHT WITH HIM BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, we have a TREMENDOUS amount to lose. Just read the Book of Revelation!

"Lord, Your Word is awesome. Lord, Your Word is powerful. Lord, Your Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. Lord, use the convicting power of the Word of the Living God and the convicting power of Your mighty Holy Spirit, to reveal to every one of us the Truth from Your Word. If the message of this tract is not true, then cause it to have no effect on the hearts of those reading it. If, however, the message from Your Word IS true, we ask You to release an outpouring of Your Holy Spirit on Christians everywhere. For those who are not spiritually ready, cut to the very bottom of their heart and REMOVE THAT FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN."

Your opinion, and my opinion, do not matter. What you have been taught does not matter. WHAT DOES THE WORD OF GOD SAY? This is ALL that really matters. The remainder of this tract will be WARNINGS DIRECTLY FROM THE WORD OF GOD, CONCERNING YOUR READINESS FOR THE RAPTURE! (If YOU are ready, that's wonderful, but how about your family, your friends, and those who sit in the church pews around you?)

In Luke 21, the whole chapter is discussing the End of the Age and the Second Coming of Christ. In verses 34-36, JESUS GIVES AN OMINOUS WARNING TO ALL CHRISTIANS, "and TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES, lest at any time YOUR HEARTS be over-charged with surfeiting (partying), and drunkenness, AND CARES OF THIS LIFE, and so THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES. For as a snare (trap) shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. WATCH YE, therefore, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the son of man (Jesus)."

If ALL Christians were going to take part in this GREAT ESCAPE, WHY WOULD JESUS GIVE SUCH A STERN AND OMINOUS WARNING TO THE END-TIME CHRISTIAN??? This is DEFINITELY a very PERSONAL WARNING for each of us. The subject matter can be nothing but the Tribulation hour and the Rapture. Jesus says to pray always. Surely, Jesus knows that a non-Christian cannot be in an attitude of constant prayer. Surely, non-Christians are not expected to be LOOKING FOR THAT DAY and WATCHING for signs of His Soon Return.

Jesus is continuously talking to HIS FOLLOWERS throughout this chapter. Jesus says to TAKE HEED TO YOURSELF. He is addressing YOUR HEART and He is constantly personalizing this message to YOU, to YE, THE CHRISTIAN! ARE YOU LISTENING? ARE YOU READY???

What can we do, as Christians, to be found WORTHY of the Lord's GREAT ESCAPE, THE RAPTURE? Jesus tells us to be in a constant attitude of prayer. Become so close to the Lord that you can talk with Him about anything. Pray that the Lord would reveal to YOU anything in your life that might keep you from being ready for the Rapture. Then you need to act upon that which the Lord shows you to do.

In this passage, the Lord strongly encourages us to be WATCHING for the SIGNS of His Soon Return, so that we would not be UNAWARE of the approximate time of His Return. Jesus said we could KNOW when His Return was NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOORS! ALL SIGNS NOW CONFIRM TO US THAT HIS COMING IS AT THE DOOR!!!

If you do not have this firm conviction in your heart that our Lord's Return is AT THE DOOR, it is probably because you have not been WATCHING for signs as He continuously admonishes us to do over and over again in the New Testament (Read Mark 13 and 14). Are the CARES OF THIS LIFE your priority, or do you so much look forward to His Return that YOU LOVE HIS APPEARING (II Timothy 4:8) more than the things of this life?

The CARES OF THIS LIFE (Luke 21:34) are what cause us to become "worldly" Christians, or "back-slid-den" Christians, or "lukewarm" Christians. Luke 21:34-36 (Go back and read it again) strongly implies that these types of Christians ARE NOT READY FOR THE RAPTURE!!!

In Revelation, starting with Chapter 6, the horrible judgments of the Tribulation are poured out on an unsuspecting world. In Chapters 1-3, there are several WARNINGS TO THE CHRISTIANS IN THE LAST DAYS, WARNINGS BEFORE THE RAPTURE AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION IN CHAPTERS 6--19.

The constant theme of Revelation, Chapter 2, is the NEED OF THE END-TIME CHRISTIAN TO REPENT! Rev. 2: 4-5 says, "I have somewhat against thee, because THOU HAS LEFT THY FIRST LOVE. Remember, therefore, from whence thou are fallen, AND REPENT, and do the first works; or else I WILL COME UNTO THEE QUICKLY, AND WILL REMOVE THY CANDLESTICK OUT OF HIS PLACE, EXCEPT THOU REPENT."

If you HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE, you are a "back-slid-den" Christian. You need to REPENT and restore your relationship with Christ, back to what it should be. Is the Lord speaking to YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW?

Rev. 3:10 says, "Because thou has kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon all the world, to try them who dwell upon the earth." The implication of this verse is obvious. If the end-time Christian does NOT stay close to the Lord, and endure to the end, HE WILL NOT BE KEPT FROM THE TRIBULATION HOUR!

Rev. 3: 15-16 is ANOTHER OMINOUS WARNING TO ALL CHRISTIANS, "I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I wish that you were either cold or hot. So then BECAUSE YOU ARE LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPUE YOU OUT OF MY MOUTH."

Can you honestly give another explanation for this verse, other than the LORD CASTING LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS OUT INTO THE TRIBULATION? What are YOU doing that would show the Lord that you are ON FIRE for Him? These verses say emphatically that their WORKS WERE LUKEWARM.

What happens to the UN-watchful SERVANT who believes his LORD is not coming back for a while, and is not that concerned about the way he is living his life? Matthew 24: 50-51 says, "the LORD of that SERVANT...shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (The Tribulation Hour?)." In Matthew 25:30, we see the exact same result for the unprofitable SERVANT. In both cases, there is A LORD--SERVANT RELATIONSHIP ALREADY ESTABLISHED. ARE ALL CHRISTIANS GOING IN THE RAPTURE? WHAT DOES THE WORD SAY???

This world is full of LUKEWARM, BACK-SLID-DEN, UN-WATCHFUL, AND WORLDLY Christians. In Rev. 7:9, we see a GREAT MULTITUDE, that no man could number, standing before the Lamb of God in Heaven. Verse 14 describes them, "These are they which came OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, AND HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." In Chapter 20, it says they were beheaded, for not taking the Mark of the Beast.

This great multitude of people already had robes. Your Robe of righteousness is given to you at the time of your salvation. They were already saved but their ROBES WERE DIRTY. These COMPROMISING Christians were caught up in the CARES OF THE WORLD when the Rapture happened and they were cast into the Tribulation like the Scriptures had warned them about so many times. They WASHED THEIR DIRTY ROBES in the Great Tribulation because there is no compromise then---IT'S EITHER JESUS CHRIST (and lose your head) OR ANTICHRIST (and lose your soul FOREVER)!!!

Do you really want to have to face that choice? It is clear from God's Word what you must do to be assured of a place in the Rapture. YOU MUST ACT QUICKLY BECAUSE THE TIME FOR THE RAPTURE IS ALMOST HERE!

1. Make sure that you have received Jesus Christ into your life as your PERSONAL Lord and Saviour.

2. Examine your own heart for any signs of backsliding, worldliness, unwatchfulness, compromising, or lukewarmness.

3. REPENT (Turn COMPLETELY away from sin and turn COMPLETELY around towards Jesus). Sin separates you from God, even as a Christian.

4. Study end-time Biblical prophecy, until you become completely convinced that His Coming is, indeed, AT THE DOOR. This will help keep you from temptation and sin. JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON!!! The extreme nearness of the Rapture IS THE PURIFYING FORCE IN THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER (I John 3:3).

5. Do something for the Lord. (Passing out tracts would be a good start.)

6. Examine your priorities, lest the CARES OF THIS LIFE cause YOU to MISS THE RAPTURE, as we are so adamantly WARNED about in Luke 21, and so many other Scriptures.

7. Draw closer to God by praying, reading His Word, attending a fundamental church as often as possible, and surround yourself with a Christian atmosphere (Christian friends, books, music, radio, TV, etc.)


9. Listen for His voice and then STAY OPEN TO THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

10. Act upon that, which the Lord is calling you to do. DO IT NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

If the Lord has planted the least bit of doubt or uneasiness in your heart, PLEASE swallow your pride and pray this prayer with me:

"Dear Lord, Thank you for preparing a WAY OF ESCAPE from the horrible Tribulation to come. It is my sincere desire to be ready for your Soon Return, so that I can participate in the Rapture. Give me a COMPLETE PEACE IN MY HEART FROM YOU if I am, indeed, ready.

Let there be no false sense of security in my heart, concerning my readiness for Your Return. Begin to reveal to me things in my life and in my heart, that might keep me from the Rapture. Show me what I need to do to BE READY, and then give me the power to act upon that which you show me to do. Draw me away from the world, and closer to you every day. Use me in whatever way you can to help others, who may not be ready for your Return. Fill me with your peace when I am ready and fill me with YOUR POWER, for victory over sin and temptation, and for effective service for your kingdom. In Jesus' mighty name, Amen."


Feel free to make copies of this tract or forward it to your back-slid-den, lukewarm, compromising, UN-watchful, and worldly family members and friends. Do not delay. Time is very, very short. What we do, we must do quickly now.

01:48 pm - 20 Obama Quotes About Islam Contrasted With 20 Obama Quotes About Christianity
By Michael Snyder, on September 27th, 2013

You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public. A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure. Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions. In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God. At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies. So what in the world does “the leader of the free world” actually believe? Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”

#2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

#4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

#5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

#6 “Islam has always been part of America”

#7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

#11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

#12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

#13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

#14 “throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

#15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

#16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

#17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

#18 “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

#19 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

#20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

#13 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

#18 “we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”

#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

11:20 am - What does the Bible Say about the Roman Catholic Church?
by Paul Kidd from "Biblical Answers To Todays Tough Questions"

The Roman Catholic Church believes faith in Christ isnt enough to be Saved. These Scripture show that repenting and asking Jesus to Save our soul, is all we need. (John 1:12; 3:16,18,36; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10,13; Ephesians 2:8-9). Sadly The RCC doesnt believe this. They teach you must believe in Jesus, receive the Eucharist and various sacraments. They also teach you must obey all decrees, perform meritorious works, and many other things. They also believe a priest behind a curtain can forgive your sins, and you can pay a priest to get your loved one out of Hell, among many other heresies. Catholicism is a false religion. Whoever believes and practices what they teach can NOT be saved, as they are adding to the Bibles requirements, and taking away from the Bible as well.

The RCC also teaches: the sacraments, transubstantiation, infant baptism, plenary indulgences, prayer to saints and Mary, prayer to the pope, purgatory, worship of saints and Mary, apostolic succession, etc. Now the RCC will say they have proof in the Bible for these things, but there is NO proof, they are lying about this.

The false teachings of the RCC many times give the enemies of Jesus the chance to blaspheme against Him. The RCC isnt the church that Jesus or Paul founded, this is another huge lie they spread. The bottom line is this. If you desire to make Heaven your eternal Home, you need to RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN from the RCC.!!!

06:05 pm - Christian bakery closes after LGBT threats, protests
Pretty soon, it'll only be a matter of time before this fallen nation starts rounding up Christians and putting them in concentration camps for rehabilitation. I'm utterly disgusted by the fact that America is no longer that country that I used to love and recognize anymore. The next thing you know they will start persecuting Christians by calling us terrorists and hate mongers. Then they'll believe that we're a threat to society to the point that they want to execute us. It is already happening right now in America. They LGBT movement just wants to shut down ALL Christian businesses. They don't care about the truth of the gospel. They only care about their agenda.
Forget marriage equality. There's no such thing. It's marriage perversion. Shame on the U.S. Supreme Court! Shame on the corrupt U.S. politicians who would support this kind of filth! Above all, shame on Obama for supporting and spreading this iniquity that will only destroy our nation in the end.

A family-owned Christian bakery, under investigation for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, has been forced to close its doors after a vicious boycott by militant homosexual activists.

Sweet Cakes By Melissa posted a message on its Facebook page alerting customers that their Gresham, Ore. retail store would be shut down after months of harassment from pro-gay marriage forces.

“Better is a poor man who walks in integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways,” read a posting from Proverbs on the bakery’s Facebook page.

“The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”

- Aaron Klein, owner, Sweet Cakes By Melissa

“It’s a sad day for Christian business owners and it’s a sad day for the First Amendment,” owner Aaron Klein told me. “The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”

Last January, Aaron and Melissa Klein made national headlines when they refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

Klein tells me he has nothing against homosexuals -- but because of their religious faith, the family simply cannot take part in gay wedding events.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said. “I don’t want to help somebody celebrate a commitment to a lifetime of sin.”

The lesbian couple filed a discrimination with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries and told their story to local newspapers and television statements.

Within days, militant homosexuals groups launched protests and boycotts. Klein told me he received messages threatening to kill his family. They hoped his children would die.

The LGBT protestors then turned on other wedding vendors around the community. They threatened to boycott any florists, wedding planners or other vendors that did business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa.

“That tipped the scales,” Klein said. “The LGBT activists inundated them with phone calls and threatened them. They would tell our vendors, ‘If you don’t stop doing business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa, we will shut you down.’”

To make matters worse, the Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries announced last month they had launched a formal discrimination investigation against the Christian family.

Commissioner Brad Avakian told The Oregonian that he was committed to a fair and thorough investigation to determine whether the bakery discriminated against the lesbians.

“Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, but that doesn’t mean that folks have the right to discriminate,” he told the newspaper. “The goal is to rehabilitate. For those who do violate the law, we want them to learn from that experience and have a good, successful business in Oregon.”

In other words, Christians who live and work in Oregon must follow man’s law instead of God’s law. But in a show of benevolence, the state is willing to rehabilitate and reeducate Christian business owners like the Kleins.

Klein said the closing of their retail store was a small price to pay for standing up for their religious beliefs.

“As a man of faith, I am in good spirits,” he said. “I’m happy to be serving the Lord and standing up for what’s right.”

Klein said what’s happened to Sweet Cakes By Melissa should be a warning to other Christians across the nation.

“This is a fight that’s been coming for a while,” he said. “Be prepared to take a stand. Hopefully, the church will wake up and understand that we are under attack right now.”

Just last month, New Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that two Christian photographers who declined to photograph a same-sex union violated the state’s Human Rights Act. One justice said the photographers were “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.”

Denver baker Jack Phillips is facing possible jail time for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

The Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a formal complaint against Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop. A hearing before the state’s civil rights commission is set for later this month.

In Indianapolis, a family-owned cookie shop faced a discrimination investigation after they refused to make rainbow cookies for National Coming Out Day.

A T-shirt company in Lexington, Ky. found itself at the center of a Human Rights Commission investigation after they refused to make T-shirts for a local gay rights organization.

Klein said it’s becoming clear that Christians do not have the “right to believe what we believe.”

In other words, gay rights trump religious rights.

Aaron and Melissa Klein tell me they will continue to bake wedding cakes from their home. He’s already taken a full-time job to pay the bills and feed their five children.

Mrs. Klein told television station KPTV her philosophy remains unchanged by recent events.

“The Bible tells us to flee from sin,” she said. “I don’t think making a cake for it helps. I guess in my mind I thought we lived in a lot nicer of a world where everybody tolerated everybody.”

The plight of the Klein family exposes the true nature of the left. Those who preach tolerance and diversity are the least tolerant and the least diverse of all.

02:17 pm - The End Times & Prayer of Repentance
The LORD has thus in His grace revealed to me the Prophesy of The Anti-Christ and his agenda; and The LORD has gone further to reveal to me the personality of the person who is very very very imminently going to transform into The Anti-Christ/The First Beast/The man of Lawlessness once the rapture of the bride of Christ happens and then the earth is plunged into The Great Tribulation

Before we come back to this, the main theme of this discussion is to bring to your attention that: Time Is Extremely Absolutely Over!!!. Why do I say so? This is because the timelines indicated in the Bible points to some very very crucial events that must take place before everything is wrapped up very very very soon. To understand this, let us go to the book of Revelation 13:5-8 “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.”

And so from the above, you find that the beast (The Anti-Christ) will be given 42 months (3.5 years) to exercise his authority. Who is going to give him his authority? The devil (dragon) is the one going to give him his authority. And once given the authority during the Great Tribulation period, he is going to do some stated things under the guidance, direction and influence of satan, and these are:

-He is going to open his mouth and blaspheme The LORD God Almighty and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven i.e. he is going to say unheard of things and accusations against The LORD God Almighty and the kingdom of Heaven and those who live in Heaven (The raptured saints etc). He is actually going to declare himself the messiah that the world has been waiting for.

-He is going to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them i.e. he is going to persecute and kill any body who preaches about the salvation of The LORD Jesus Christ and anybody who believes on salvation of The LORD Jesus Christ. And so the Lukewarm Christians who will be spit by The LORD Jesus Christ and thus find themselves in The Great Tribulation and others who will seek The LORD Jesus Christ during The Great Tribulation will be persecuted if their eyes open to the need to seek Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ.

-He will be given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation i.e. the Anti-Christ is going to be the leader of a One World Government that will be put in force through The New World Order agenda. And this will come about as a result of war, chaos, judgments (Mega earthquakes, Volcano, Tsunamis etc) that will eventually lead to riots due to food shortage and insecurity. And this will be a worldwide distress and challenge. And so the leaders of the world will come together and they will handover their authority to the Anti-Christ in a New World Order arrangement that will attempt to restore order, security and peace in the world. And one of their agenda of restoring order, security and peace will be the implementation of The Mark of The Beast (The Radio Frequency Identification Micro-Chip).

-All the inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast. This is because he will proclaim to be the messiah who is to save the world from the distress, chaos, insecurity, riots and disasters (Judgment) that will befall the earth.


And so The LORD has revealed to me the personality of this end-time man; a man doomed to destruction due to His lawlessness and Anti-Christ agenda. And so this man revealed to me by The LORD in a prophesy is: Barrack Obama.

And yes, he will be revealed to the whole world during the Great Tribulation period (after the rapture) in terms of his satanic agenda discussed above. But right now The LORD has given the prophesy of his personality (identity) and agenda.

The question is: will The Anti-Christ be given the 42 months (3.5 years) to exercise the satanic authority by satan during his second term in office or thereafter? Whatever the case, it means that Time is extremely absolutely over!!! Because the options are just either of the two.

Satan can only give the Anti-Christ the authority to exercise the satanic agenda once the restrainer (The Holy Spirit) is taken away when the rapture(the taking away abruptly into heaven those who have prepared the way for the coming of The LORD) occurs. And this is well stated in the book of 2nd Thessalonians 2: 5-8 “Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.”

Remember also that it is also at that time that satan will be giving The Anti-Christ his authority for 42 months (3.5 years);The LORD God Almighty will also appoint His Two Witnesses to prophesy for exactly the same period at the same time: 1260 days (42 months/3.5 years).

Revelation 11:1-3 “I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”

In conclusion, it is very very important to note that Nobody knows the day or the hour of the rapture of the bride of Christ but everybody should know the length of the period that satan gives his son (The Anti-Christ) authority to exercise his reign. And it is also very very important to note that everybody ought to know the length of period that The LORD God Almighty appoints His two witnesses to Prophesy. And both are 1260 days (42 months/3.5 years), at the same time.




Precious Jesus,

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind,

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I repent and turn away from all sin.

Please cover me with your precious blood,

and establish your word in my life,

that I may be found in righteousness and holiness

and write my name in your book of life

and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit

in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.


Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!

02:31 pm - More proof that Obama is the future Antichrist

The following information has been compiled by Paul Kidd:

1) WOW!!! I just discovered that the first computer ever sold for personal use was sold for...wait for it...wait for it...$666.66...Now I am CERTAIN the computer network will play a HUGE role in the upcoming BEAST system, that happens AFTER the IMMINENT Rapture.!!! So isnt it interesting that the FIRST one sold's number matches the number of the BEAST (with 2 more 6's for good measure).!!!
2) Also interesting that the ANTICHRIST (obama) recently gave back a portion of his salary, that he claims he was overpaid. How much you ask? $6,666.66.!!!
3) Obama is depicted as Christ or God in NUMEROUS magazines, pictures & Paintings
4) His name has 18 letters, 3 names. 18 divided by 3=6...Three 6's....666 the number of the beast!
5) His 2008 slogan "yes we can" when backmasked CLEARLY says "Thank you satan" You can see the antichrist BEAMING as MILLIONS EVERYWHERE thank his god satan right along with him, as he does.!
6) His favorite limo is named "the beast"!
7) Doctors have stated that the best place for RFID Chips in obamacare, when he finally makes them mandatory, tentative date now is around 2017 (if rapture happens sometime this year, would put the date right at mid-Tribulation, when he becomes desecrates the Temple and goes after Jews and Christians) to be placed in either the hand or the forehead...
(Barack and 666 degrees of a circle)
9) His Chicago zipcode: 60606
10) Baraq U/OBamaw in Hebrew means :Satan fell from the heights like lightning
11) Interesting 666 pic
12) In each of the following on the day it occured, the Illinois lottery winning # was 666:
16 January 2008 - One year anniversary of 0bama announcing his candidacy for President.
22 March 2008 - New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson endorses 0bama, Hillary’s campaign withers.
23 October 2008 - The New York Times officially endorses 0bama
05 November 2008 - 0bama wins the general election, defeating John McCain for President.

13) Final musings on 666 and obama:
When Barack Hussein Obama Leaves the white house by 20 January 2017, it will be 666 months from the month that he was born.

216 connection. 216 = 6 x 6 x 6.

The number 216 has EXTENSIVE links to occult phenomenon. This includes the fact that 216 is 6x6x6. This means that 216 is illuminist code for 666. more:

Barack Obama Born 4 August 1961 the 216th day of the year. 6x6x6

Barack Hussein Obama Born Honolulu, Hawaii 21.6 latitude 6x6x6
He obtains passage of Obamacare legislation with an odd requirement of 216 votes 6x6x6 (usually takes 218 votes to pass a law.

The odds now, with this new information, that it could be anyone else is roughly:
Graham's number simply written as 3 3. Too large to communicate!!!
