Friday Musings: Doomsday Clock Moves to 90 Seconds to Midnight!

 

Dear Faithful and True Followers of Jesus,
 
I thought it was very telling that the powers-that-be who determine how close our world is to the end have moved us within 2 minutes to Midnight!  Perhaps one or two of them are Christians who see what's going on, but I doubt it. There's not too many of us around anymore. Either way, its just another sign of how close we are to the end of this age and that wonderful day when we will all see our Savior face to face! 
 
The main headline for the week is how close we are to Global war. Whatever your opinion is of the Ukraine war, Russia has been very clear in what will happen should the West (NATO And the US and EU) get involved in this fight. It was bad enough we have been sending billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine (which I imagine very little of it actually goes to the war effort or the people, but that's another story).  But now we and Germany are sending tanks. 
 
Intel from Hal Turner
Ukraine is losing the war and needs more weapons and tanks but doesn't have anyone trained to use them, which means the US and NATO have to put troops on the ground who are trained, which is the red line for Russia.   US and NATO are also considering a No Fly zone over Ukraine, which would also prompt a response from Russia. Stay tuned.

Now Zelensky is calling for fighter jets too. Should tanks and jets actually arrive in Ukraine, along with troops to run them, you can bet Russia will respond. And it won't be pretty. In addition, there is now a Russian warship with nuclear capabilities off of the US coast that has been simulating missile launches and jamming our radar and internet. See articles under "War" for more details. All this to say that it's highly possible Global war may break out in the next few weeks. We shall see. If that happens, we are closer than ever to going home!

Now onto the Vaccine topic. I've been wondering why so much information about the ill effects of the vaccine seem to be coming out now. And why now? Since the Globalists control everything, including the media, why would they want the public to know how poisonous the shots are? A good friend sent me this article which offers a really good explanation:  Controlling the Mark after a Con    If true, it makes sense because this is definitely one of their methods of control...to play both sides, the light and the dark, and then herd the people toward the middle where they want them. So, they allow the truth to leak out... not in totality, but only because too many people are waking up.... and then they coordinate the government's response so that the people are satisfied and reassured that something will be done and it won't happen again. But the very opposite is true. It's just another form of control.
 
Davos attendees admitted that the end game was a Global government. There was also much talk of Digital currencies and in fact a new Digital Payments Network was launched. See articles below for details. 
 
Then there's Gates who is proclaiming a much more deadly pandemic this year. Why does anyone still listen to him?  But I have no doubt his is right. 
 
I guess my point is.. these things will continue to get worse and worse. We know that. Yet as they do, and our lives become unsettled, the Lord wants us to learn to trust Him. For Food, protection, salvation of loved ones, jobs, health, etc. He is our Great provider and He promises to look after us. But we must believe that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him!   So seek Him diligently and keep your eyes on things above!!  We don't have much longer.

I know we are all going through struggles right now. I believe this is because the Lord is purifying His Bride, putting us in the fires of affliction to burn off the dross and anything that is not of Him. The result is a beautiful diamond of such clarity and purity... that it is fit for a King. Allow Him to do His work in you, submit to Him, don't complain and don't resist, but instead let your faith grow, your walk with Him deepen, and your trust and hope to soar.   
 
In case you still like the Royal Family,
 
I've never been a fan of doctors and modern medicine and have always sought out alternatives. I believe God gave us everything we need here on earth to stay healthy and to heal disease. There was a point in our past history where America had to choose between healthy natural healing and the Pharmaceuticals and they choose poorly. This is an interesting article that ties our modern medicine in with Satanism and the Mark of the Beast.
 
Remember not all Jews are good Jews. Some belong to the synagogue of Satan, as Jesus declared.

Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist!

  Wow. I was very surprised to hear that a movie about the Rapture was being released this week. I had no knowledge of this movie until a week ago. Is it a coincidence that it coincides with the release of my final book in my End Times trilogy, When Angels Rejoice?  In God's Kingdom, there are no coincidences.  Anyway, I wanted to mention that the movie releases today. I am posting the trailer below. From what I know it is produced by Christians (unlike The Chosen), but I have not seen it and cannot vouch for it. However I encourage you to get out and see it and help support Christian films. And let me know what you think. It's not playing here in many theaters or at reasonable times, so I may wait to stream it. 
 

God Bless!

Calvinism? A Warning!

 
 At the risk of upsetting or angering some of my Calvinist friends, I felt compelled to issue a warning about some of the Calvinist beliefs. I wouldn't have even looked into it except two pastors I highly respect brought up the topic independently of each other. So, please take this in the tone I intend, which is a gentle warning for anyone caught up in this belief. 

For those who don't know, Calvinism in a nutshell says that Salvation is only offered to people whom God chooses. If you are one of God's elect or chosen, then you will eventually receive Jesus's sacrifice on the cross and get saved. If you are not, you can never be saved. This is called unconditional election. In other words, there's nothing you can do on your own to be saved. It is all by the will and action of God. 

There are other tenets of Calvinism such as
  • Total Depravity - Mankind is totally depraved and unable to save himself.   (Agreed!)
  • Limited Atonement - Jesus's blood only covers the elect
  • Irresistible Grace - God's grace is irresistible to the elect. In other words, they will eventually accept it. They cannot resist it
  • Preservation of the Saints - another phrase for Once Saved Always Saved
 
They use Scripture to back up their beliefs and if you took just those Scriptures and didn't know the entire Bible, then you'd probably believe them too. 
 
First let me present the problem this kind of belief presents and then I'll use Scripture and What we know about God to refute it
 
If Only the Elect can be saved, and if that salvation occurs through no action of their own, but is purely by the will of God, then why evangelize? Why spread the Gospel at all? Why not just let God do His thing and just go about our day?  Why even pray for the lost? What good would it do? If a person is one of the elect, they will get saved, if not, your prayers fall on deaf ears. A Calvinist might say that we should spread the Gospel anyway so that those who are elected to be saved can hear it. Okay. But if they are saved anyway, won't God reach them somehow no matter what we do? Why did Jesus tell us to spread the Gospel and make Disciples?
 
Another issue I have is that of limited atonement or as Calvinist like to say Definite atonement. It seems to me that whatever you call it, you are taking away the power in the blood of Jesus to save. If Jesus's death on the cross CAN only save a few elect, then isn't that limiting its power?  Doesn't the Scripture say that Jesus's sacrifice was for all the world? (John 3:16)  If that's true, then by saying it can only save certain people and not others, you are limiting its power, which is blasphemous. Also saying people are saved by Election AND the Cross also requires something to be added to Jesus's sacrifice, which again, is blasphemous and not the Gospel message.
 
The last issue I have is with the belief that you can't lose your salvation. Since Calvinists believe only the elect are saved and not by anything they do, then of course they can't lose that salvation. That would throw off the entire election thing. If ALL the elect must get saved (whether they want to our not!) then no way could they lose that salvation. Do you see how this belief of election lends itself perfectly to being once saved always saved?  In fact the entire "election" belief offers a license to sin for anyone in the elect!  You can do whatever you want, sin as much as you want because you can't NOT be saved.  What a deadly, deadly belief.  
 
Calvinist Scriptures
 
Below I list a few of the Scriptures Calvinists use to prove their beliefs, in particular their beliefs of Unconditional Election and Limited Atonement. 
 
 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Ephesians 1:4-5

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Romans 8:29-30

And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. Acts 13:48

 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:44

Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

Romans 9:18-23 
 
Whoa. If I didn't know the Bible so well, I'd really be falling for this Limited Atonement theology.  From these Scriptures it really does appear that God only chooses certain people for salvation while others He simply creates for destruction. 
 
The First problem with this is that I'd have to ignore a plethora of other Scriptures. Scriptures such as the following:
 
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. John 3:16  Do a search on Whosoever in the New Testament. Whosoever means ANYONE

Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it. 2 Corinthians 13:5  Why should we be told to examine ourselves if we don't have a choice in being saved or keeping our salvation?

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? John 11:25-26
Seems you have a choice here, to believe or not. And there's that nasty word Whosoever again

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Titus 2:11

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. Romans 10:9   Big word IF. We have a choice. Also it doesn't limit this to a certain group of people.

 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46  Whosoever again!

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe
. John 1:6-7

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Acts 17:27  God draws us to Jesus, absolutely, but we have to do the seeking too!

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Philippians 2:12  Now why would we have to work out our salvation if it isn't even our choice? 

Throughout Scripture we see that Jesus came to save ALL men, not a certain group with the right DNA, not those He elected. He came to offer man a free GIFT of salvation. He desires that Everyone gets saved and none perish. Salvation is a gift and we have the free will to choose it or not, AND to hang onto it or not. God gave mankind freewill, right? The Calvinists take away that freewill for the elect. I could list a hundred more Scriptures, but this is getting too long.
 
The Second thing that is wrong with the belief of Limited Election is that we have a very narrow view of who God is. God is OUTSIDE of time.  He knows the beginning from the end. Think of it like this. I'm an author. When I start a book, I know the beginning of the story, what's going to happen in the middle, and the ending. I also know each character in the book and what's going to happen to them. I know what choices they will make and whether they will end up winning or losing, being the hero or the villain. Even though I already know a particular character will make the wrong choices and become the villain, I still have to put him in the book so he can choose. Otherwise, it wouldn't be fair to call him a villain if he never even entered the story. 
 
Now, that may be a simplistic example, but God knows before He even creates anyone, which ones will choose Him and which ones will not. Yet, if He didn't go ahead and create the ones who don't end up choosing Him and put them into the story to at least have a chance, how is that fair or just?  God is a just God. He won't send anyone to hell without first giving them a chance to receive Him. Even though He already knows what they will do. But why just NOT create them at all? But as we see in Romans 9 above, how would anyone know the riches of His glory, mercy and grace on those of us who do choose Him? Whenever mankind tries to understand God, we can end up in error. He is so much bigger than we can ever imagine. 

Warning: You can see how these beliefs can lead people to 
  • Not evangelize
  • Not pray for the lost
  • Become arrogant to be included in the "elect"
  • Have a license to sin
  • Diminish the power and reach of the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross 
The last item worries me the most because, to me, it's borderline blasphemous, but that is up to the Lord.   If you consider yourself a Calvinist or you ascribe to some of these beliefs, please please be careful. I encourage you to study the Word of God and get alone with Jesus and ask Him for truth.

When Angels Rejoice Release Day!

 

Celebrate with me the release of the third and final installment in my Guardian of the Saints series!.  As most of you know, I write mostly Historical Romance set during the Age of Sail, but the Lord urged me back in 2017 to write the first book in the series, When Angels Cry. It was my first novel set in contemporary times. I had NO desire nor inclination to write anymore in the series, but the Lord had other plans. This is a series completely directed by Him and hence, my prayer is that it will reach many people for His Kingdom.
 
If you haven't read the series yet, it is an end times suspense series that is often shown from the Guardian Angels' perspective.  So, there's lots of spiritual warfare and even a little romance! Plus it will give you one interpretation of what is coming upon this world very very soon.
 
When Angels Cry is set before the Tribulation and ends with the Rapture
When Angels Battle is set during the first half of the Tribulation
When Angels Rejoice encompasses the last half of the Tribulation and ends gloriously.  
 

A powerful ending to a series you're not going to want to miss! When Angels Rejoice is the stunning end to the Guardians of the Saints series that will have you biting your nails until the last page. Written in the style of Left Behind, this story takes you to the grand finale of planet Earth and will leave you cheering for the saints and the great Creator who is the author of time. If you're curious about End times, this is the series for you!
 
--Michelle Griep, Christy award-winning author of Lost in Darkness

I'm leaving the price at only 3.99 for the rest of the month. It will go up in price next month.

Friday Musings: Be Careful No One Deceives You!

 Dear Greatly Beloved by the Most High God!
 
Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you, deceiving you and leading you into error.  For many will come in (on the strength of) My name (appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. Matthew 24:4-5 Amplified.  

I always thought these verses meant people who said they were the Messiah, but the Greek translation actually means people who come in the name of Jesus... who say they speak for Jesus, so that would include false pastors and prophets. Let that sink in because that was the first thing Jesus warned about when His disciples asked Him about the end times.
 
It astounds me the number of Christians who cannot see what is going on in the world. Most pastors aren't preaching or teaching about end times and most believers just think the world is going through a rough spell. Surely things will get better like they always do. Yet even as I write this the World Economic Forum and all the elite Globalist are meeting in Switzerland to discuss how to take over all the world's governments, depopulate the planet, digitize the money, and essentially rule the remaining people with an iron thumb. No, they never phrase it that way. They use flowery language that makes it seem like they care about humanity and want to elevate the poor and needy and save the planet from disaster and war. When, in truth, just the opposite is true. 
 
Everything you see on mainstream media is a scripted play. Did you hear that? 99% of what you are hearing on TV or reading about online that comes from what the world considers "reliable" sources is all a bunch of lies. That's what makes this battle to get out the truth all the harder. I cannot argue against FOX or NBC or the New York Times. Who am I against them? Yet, history repeats itself. Every communist uprising must first take over the media. Once they have the media, they can control the masses. Of course it helps to keep them uneducated, divided and angry, and also distracted.   

The Lord is wondering what it's going to take to wake people up? Will it take a Global Nuclear war because that appears to be on the horizon. Will it take the world converting to digital currency as Scripture predicts, because that also appears to be happening very soon. Will it take a forced poisonous vaccine that will maim or kill many people? Or how about one pandemic after another after another with each one being worse than the last? Will it take a ton of young vaccinated people suddenly dying? How about food shortages and extreme inflation? How about thousands of layoffs like we are now seeing happen? Or perhaps it will take the Globalists actually telling us what they have planned for the world as they always do? As Klaus Schwab says: "You will own nothing and be happy." Or maybe it will take the advancement of transhumanism to the point where Musk is ready to put a chip in people's brains. Or what if the technology for the Mark of the Beast was actually developed and put into play? Or how about if things got so nasty and immoral that perverted men dressed up like women and entertained young children? Would that get people's attention? If Pedophilia was rampant and people are proposing that it be legal? How about if a man here in an American mall was told he couldn't wear a shirt that said "Jesus saves" because it was too offensive. Would Christians wake up then? 

Apparently not since all the above are things that are happening now and all of them were prophesied in the Bible. No, most Christians believe Trump or DeSantis or the Republicans will get us out of this mess, or even the current Apostate church that preaches that Christians will take over the world for Christ and usher in the glorious millennial reign. They are too busy living their best life now to realize that their lives are about to completely fall apart.  The Jesus they believe in is not the Jesus of the Bible because the Jesus of the Bible told us plainly what the end times would look like and what to expect, and that is exactly what we are seeing. How arrogant for Christians to think they can conquer the world for the Lord! Jesus is the only One who can defeat Satan and restore the planet to its original glory! Our job is merely to spread the Gospel and make disciples.

We are going home soon. I don't know when. I'd love to say it will be this year, and there's many reasons to believe that. But I don't think we have years. Even if it's 2 years, what is that? Time has been flying by so fast. Look at it this way. If we have a year or two, that's more time for you to grow in Christ, to become more like Him, and to affect many more souls for the Kingdom!  Every prayer, every word we speak to others, every kind action counts for all eternity! Don't ever think you have little influence. God has called you and put you here for such a time as this!  So, let's make the most of our remaining time!  

The main thing the Lord has been speaking to me about lately is to cut away all ties we have with this world.  If there is anything or anyone that you value more than Jesus, ask Him to help you change your heart and put Him first. I'm talking about family, friends, career, looks, money.. anything that you can't live without. I have many things in my life that I value, but I can honestly say I would rather have Jesus and none of them then have all of them and not Jesus.  So, cut away anything that hinders your love for Him and your walk with Him!  You'll be glad you did.
