Greetings in Jesus…!
First, thank you so much to those of you who help keep this ministry going through your prayers and support! You guys are the best!
Jim went to be with the LORD on 1/3/2019
As many of you may know Jim was battling many healthissues for several months. Jim went to sleep and went to be home with the LORD, as he had desired from his own home.
Here is the obituary written by his daughter Tiffany:
James “Jim” Gunther Zilonka of Florissant, Colorado went to be with his Lord on the morning of January*- 3, 2019 at the age of 65. After struggling with multiple health issues over the years, he passed alone in his home.
Jim was a true lover of life and lived it to its fullest! A native of Northern California, he grew up enjoying the great outdoors, and especially loved his time living and working in Yosemite National Park before moving to Colorado in the late 70’s. Some of his exploits included daily jumping off of cliffs with his hang glider, embarking on a solo drive across the continent to explore Alaska, and taking his daughter and faithful canines on all sorts of adventures, both local and across the country. Jim eventually settled on his own land in the Lake George area where he became an integral part of the local community. He was a hard worker, a successful business man, a loving father, and a loyal friend. But most of all, he was a true lover of his Lord and Savior. Jim was an exMormon and his never ceasing goal was to reach as many people as possible with the truth of Jesus Christ. He spent over the last three decades of his life in full time ministry through his radio broadcast, website, and monthly newsletter called Cultivate Ministries.
Jim will be lovingly remembered by his daughter, Tiffany (Mark) and two grandchildren (Lyla and Atlas) in Florence, Alabama. He was predeceased by his parents, Gunther and Naoma, and siblings, Dick and Jean.
His life will be celebrated with a service and burial at The Florissant Pioneer Cemetery on Saturday, January 12th, 2019 at 9:30am.
Some of Jim’s final wishes
Jim wanted very much to thank those who had supported him in his ministry with their prayers and gifts of support. Jim and his close friend Paul had been setting up and mentoring others for the continuance of his “kitchen table” watchman ministry when he passed. His ministry will continue as long as the LORD provides and we continue to ask mainly for your prayers and also gifts of support.
A word from Dudley The ministry will continue pretty much the same as always. First of all. My name is Dudley Martin and I would like to thank you all for your prayers which Jim has requested over the years. And I look forward to picking up the pursuit which Jim and the LORD has called me to, knowing and working for
Jim for 20 years I know how deeply he cared for Gods people and those he ministered to, and how blessed he was by his supporters.
A word from WND by Dennis Prager
I rarely make predictions – whether of election results or anything else. My policy has always been to say that I believe should be done, not what will be done. I am making an exception with regard to America in 2019. 2019 will be a dark year in America. Thanks to the left’s control of the House of Representatives and the news media, Americans will be kept in a fevered state throughout 2019 – with innumerable hearings, exposés, criminal investigations and possible indictments of those around the president and the president himself. Truth will not be the point. Defamation will. Anything that might muddy the president, no matter how spurious, no matter how thin the evidence, will be pursued with gusto. The media will drop “bombshell” after “bombshell.”
If lives and careers are ruined, so much the better; no one should be associating with this president anyway, as far as the left is concerned. The Robert Mueller investigation into alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government – which has led to guilty pleas and imprisonment of people around President Trump for offenses having nothing to do with such collusion – is a preview of what lies ahead. The goal of the left to weaken, disable and impeach the president is the heart of its mission to undo the 2016 presidential election. If the Republicans had done anything comparable during the Obama administration, the Democrats and the media would not only have charged Republicans with racism – as they labeled all criticism of Barack Obama – they would have howled “fascism.” And, for once, they wouldn’t have been far from the truth. The misuse of government institutions for political ends is indeed a fascist tactic. But because most media serve as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, there will be no protest from the media, only support. There is nothing Trump or any member of his administration has done that is comparable to Hillary Clinton’s use of her own email server while U.S. secretary of state, or her destroying tens of thousands of emails after they were subpoenaed by Congress, or foreign governments’ and corporations’ paying vast sums of money to Bill Clinton and The Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of
Nor is there anything Trump or anyone in his administration has done comparable to the Obama administration’s use of the IRS to suppress conservative nonprofits; its selling guns to Mexican drug cartels, at least one of which was later found at the scene where a Border Patrol officer was killed; or the lies it told about the cause of the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. Yet any suggestion by Republicans that these activities be investigated is effectively shouted down by the Democrats and the media.
And let’s not talk about the real collusion in 2016 – between the FBI, the State Department, the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House, using material sourced in part from the Russian government – to
undermine the Republican candidate for president and his presidency. The mainstream media aren’t interested in that.
In other words, the Democratic Party and the media will do to American political life what it has done to the arts; the universities; the high schools; the Boy Scouts; race relations; religion; the happiness of so many women (misled by feminism regarding marriage and career); the moral fabric of American life (morality reduced to feelings); late-night television; mainstream Judaism, Catholicism and Protestantism; pro football; and the sexual innocence of the young: It will poison it. From the French Revolution to this day, the two great aims of the left have been promising utopia to the malcontented and accumulating as much power as possible. All moral values are subservient to these goals. After all, what could be more important than “social justice” (the left’s term for everything it advocates); “equality” (of result); women’s liberation from the “sexist oppression” of the “patriarchy”; combating “white privilege”; fighting the “rape culture” that pervades campuses; saving life on planet Earth from the “existential threat” to it; “resistance” to the “authoritarian,” “fascist,” “white supremacist,” “racist” Trump administration; supplanting national identities and institutions
with a “world citizen” identity and international institutions; and undoing the most fundamental built-in identity of the human race, that of male and female, in the name of transgender rights? Compared with almost any country, America is freer; gives its people more opportunities to economically advance; is less racist, xenophobic and antiSemitic; has a friendlier population; has less corruption; and has far more medical innovation. Yet this coming year, the left, the Democratic Party and the media will continue purveying the lie that the Trump administration is fascist, racist and authoritarian and poses a mortal threat to American democracy. (Given all this Trumpian fascism, how exactly did the Republicans lose the House?) Thanks to
Democratic control of the House of Representatives, the left will use the levers of government to keep the American people in a constant state of agitation. The only thing the left hates more than a happy population is losing elections. And it knows the two are linked – because happy and grateful Americans rarely vote Democrat. The road to Democrat victories lies in convincing women, blacks, Hispanics, Jews and young people to be as unhappy, ungrateful and angry as possible – in the greatest country ever made. That is the
left’s agenda for 2019.Nevertheless, in wishing a happy new year to my fellow Americans, I hope I’m wrong.
El Shaddai Ministries from Pastor Mark:
Shalom one and all! Can you believe it! Here we are in 2019! I believe this next year will be one for the history books. Psychologically they say decades ending in 9 be they your personal birthdays such as 29 or 39 or even calendar years like 2009 and 2019 are pivotal years for people. They are trigger years as people realize they are entering another life cycle. Here as we are about to emerge into the following year of 2020 this next one will be a very interesting one with all the turmoil that is sure to come about. I recently read an article where the major countries that have been upholding the so called global order for decades have all entered times of instability causing the global balances of power to be totally shaken. In Europe, specifically France and Britain and the Brexit problem along with all the illegal immigration has rocked their societies.
Here in the US there is total political upheaval as well as a fear of where the economy is headed along with the illegal immigration problems. For several biblical reasons I really believe we will be hearing a clarion call to rebuild the Temple like never before sometime in the next 2 years. 20/20 will be a year that many of the end time prophecies will come into focus and we won’t be seeing through a glass as darkly as before. People need to know the importance of being on God’s calendar. This coming March our new book will be available: “Decoding the Antichrist and the End Times” by Mark Blitz I am so excited about this book because our goal has always been taking Torah to the nations and I believe this is one book that will really wake up church leaders as well as the whole body of Messiah to the times we are living in. This is the book where I finally expose Solomon for how he truly was. I also go through the concept of where we are technologically for the
possibility of the Antichrist to step in at any time. Here are just a few of the endorsements given so far for the book:
“Pastor Mark Biltz has written a unique and compelling take on the Antichrist, bringing an analysis from various views to paint a picture of what the end times will look like through the lens of Scripture as well as contemporary events. This book is an interesting read that is filled with important information and compelling insights.”
CEO and Founder:
Voice of Evangelism Outreach Ministries (VOE)
Omega Center International (OCI)
International School of the Word (ISOW)
“Decoding the Antichrist and the End Times puts many of the previously missed pieces of the end time puzzle together. Biltz cuts through the fog of tradition and calcified false ideas, getting right to the heart of the biblical matter. This book reveals some critical and previously unknown keys that unlock the truth concerning the last days and the return of Yeshua. This is an exciting contribution to the study of eschatology that will greatly benefit all who long for His appearing.”
Pastor Tom Deuschle – Celebration Ministries International
“In Decoding the Antichrist and the End Times, Mark Biltz not only draws our attention to the importance of connecting the New Testament to its foundation in the Tanakh but also to the necessity of examining the Scriptures from the perspective of those who wrote them: the Jews. Biltz zeroes in on key patterns that demonstrate the prophetic significance of the Feasts of the Lord, rebuilding the Temple, and the regathering of Israel. While underscoring the historical nature of Scripture, Mark skillfully reminds us that the body of
Messiah still faces challenges in combating replacement theology and a predominantly Greek mindset. Decoding the Antichrist and the End Times is a book chock-full of twists and surprises.” For me it has never been about the money but always about getting the word out as we are so close to the coming of the Messiah.

A Word from Hal Lindsey
If you’re a regular viewer of “The Hal Lindsey Report,” you know that I’ve hit hard and often on two ideas. One, that times of persecution (and legal prosecution) are headed our way. Two, that the reason for that persecution will be our insistence on pressing the claim of Jesus Christ that He is the only way to salvation and heaven. As we see the demonic spirit of “political correctness” take firmer hold on all areas of our society, I’m convinced that the decision by true Christians to stand up for Jesus on certain issues and claims will spark an onslaught of derision and discrimination against us. I think those defining issues will include abortion, same sex marriage, parental rights, and the role of God in our national life. Most importantly, though, I believe it will all come down to the name of Jesus. Already, our military, our schools, our courts, and our governments (we lost the entertainment industry and our universities long ago) are in a mad dash to
eliminate any vestige of religious recognition, much less freedom. However, it seems to be only Christ- centered traditions that are being banished. Islam, humanism, and other religions are, in fact, being celebrated and encouraged in ways Christianity never has. Just as Jesus Himself warned, the dividing line in the last days will be the name of Jesus. He said that because the world hated Him, it will hate us. He cautioned that true, and faithful, believers will be persecuted “for My name’s sake.” (John 15:21) Over the last few years, I’ve shown you myriad examples of how this exact situation is developing right here in the United States — and inside some of our most trusted institutions. As a “watchman on the wall,” my calling is to declare what I see coming so that you can prepare yourself and your family for those days. But that preparation should not be haphazard or random. If we are to remain strong in the coming days, months, and years, we must be standing on a firm foundation. To be able to unflinchingly press the claims of Christ in this hostile world, we must make every effort to understand the man who made those claims. To fully appreciate who Jesus Christ is, we must first understand WHY there needed to be a Jesus Christ. There was a reason for God’s provision of a savior and a reason for the path He chose for our redemption. I’ll begin this week with an explanation of “Why God Had to Become a Man.” Then we’ll start an examination (which I’ll continue next week) of “The Man God Became.” The majesty, the beauty, and the sheer complexity of the concept of the God-Man Jesus Christ is almost overwhelming. But it was all necessary to redeem the creation lost to sin at the fall of Adam. Thank God that He loved us so much He provided a “second Adam” to unselfishly take our place. And thank you, Jesus, for being willing to bear our sins upon Your sinless shoulders so that we may be partakers of Your eternal glory.
The Great Communication Blackout
ATMs failed in Idaho, Wyoming delayed lottery results, and 911 call centers in Washington, Arizona, Missouri and other states struggled with busy signals, dropped calls and missing location information. At the Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, staff couldn’t access vital patient records online. And in parts of New Mexico and Montana, Verizon faced service disruptions through no fault of its own. Press reports have linked a long list of troubles to network problems suffered by telecommunications company Century Link, based in Monroe, La., two days after Christmas. For about 30 hours, from the early morning hours of Dec. 27 until late on Dec. 28, chaos reigned on CenturyLink’s system. Western states that depend most heavily on the company’s fiber-optic system were hardest hit, but reports of outages and slower speeds came in from Alaska to Florida, according to downdetector.com. “CenturyLink experienced a network
event on one of our six transport networks beginning on December 27 that impacted voice, IP, and transport services for some of our customers. The event also impacted CenturyLink’s visibility into our network management system, impairing our ability to troubleshoot and prolonging the duration of the outage,” the company said in a statement.- DENVER POST
Do You Know These Words For Snow?
As the Winter Snow has been falling hard in Colorado and many parts of the U.S. this year…fun facts!
One of the things I enjoy about winter is the many different words for snow people use, especially people from the northern United States and Canada. Here are some of the different words I’ve heard from “snow experts”
CORN – A course granular wet snow formed by cycles of
melting and freezing.
FIRN – Snow that is more than a year old but hasn’t
consolidated into ice.
FLURRY – A brief snowfall that produces little to no
GRAUPEL – Sometimes called snow pellets. Round opaque
snowflakes that form when regular snowflakes fall through ice
cold liquid clouds, similar to hail but much smaller and less
POWDER – New snow composed of loose, fresh crystals.
Also the type of snow that is man made snow.
RIMED SNOW – Large snow flakes coated in tiny frozen
water droplets called rimed.
SLEET – Rain mixed with snow.
SLUSH – Partially melted snow
SNIRT – Snow mixed with dirt or dust.
SNOW SQUALL- A brief, intense snow shower that does not
qualify as a blizzard due to it’s short duration.
SNOW BURST – An intense snowfall that produces a large
accumulation in short time.
We pray that all of you are staying safe and warm this time of
The Dangers of G.M.O’s
A feature film length documentary unveiling the Lies of GMOs exposes the massive public health dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The film features the world’s leading Scientists, Physicians, Professors, Politicians, Attorneys and Environmental Activists who reveal the frightening truth surrounding the vast use of GMOs in our food supply. You’ll see the deception and deep layers of corruption being perpetuated against the public at large by the world’s largest and most powerful Biotechnology Companies, Chemical Companies, Agricultural Companies and Governments. Over the last few years, our understanding
of Genetic Engineering has increased significantly, even so we are only beginning to observe the detrimental effects.Genetic Engineering of plants has been shown through scientific study disruptive to entire cellular mechanisms of plants, animals and humans, along with severe negative impact on the environment. The Big Ag companies; Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta–are dead set that the world’s populations remain in the dark, ignorant about the devastating health and environmental risks, and argue their manipulation of genes is safe, yet increasing study shows the opposite. To counter the lies, another award winning documentary hits back with the truth. The DVD The Dangerof GMO’s is available for a gift of any amount this month.
Also available for a gift of any amount this month are the DVD’s Food as Medicine, and Secrets of Health!
“The Secret to Health” reveals information that has been suppressed by the medical establishment for over 100 years! Learn how you can restore your health, increase your energy, and take control of your health. Everyday our bodies absorb thousands of toxins that are found in genetically modified foods (GMOs), pesticides, meat, dairy, refined sugar, artificial sweeteners (ex: aspartame), and microwaved foods. Most
diseases and illnesses are caused by these toxins polluting our bodies. Find out what you can do in this 1.5 hour long video.
A word from Alexis
The LORD brought Jim and I together as God answered a prayer for me many months ago. I was spending a day in nature with my family when I had taken a few minutes of solitude to pray. I asked God what my next step was to be in serving Him, and asked Him to show me the way. It was a few short days later that Jim had called me back regarding the position he was looking to fill to help him with his ministry. Even though I only worked for him for four months, Jim and I knew God had lead me to helping in his ministry as we were of the “same spirit and mind”, as Jim has called it. One spirit and mind through our love of Jesus Christ. I was the last
person to see Jim alive in his home, and I wish his time hadn’t been cut so short. I can’t tell you what an honor it has been to serve alongside such a wonderful man who truly was living out God’s will and call for his life. Thank you to each of his supporters who have the same heart and spirit in seeking out the truth in God’s Word and living that out each day.
First of all please keep Jims daughter Tiffany in your prayers for support and comfort during this time, as well as his close friend Paul who has known Jim since his days of studying with Walter Martin. Please pray for all who will continue the work on this ministry. Also pray this ministry continues with same humility and heart for Gods people as it has for the past several decades.
We still have our 30 club available and anyone wishing to support this ministry with a gift of $30 or more each month may start receiving all the DVD’s we air each month. So just let me know when you write if you would like to become a part of our 30 club. This really helps to pay for our air time.
Thank you again ever so much to those who help keep this ministry going through your prayers and support! Both of which are greatly needed and greatly appreciated in this late hour.Yours because His:
