May 2017 Newsletter PDF VERSION
Greetings in Jesus…!
First, I just need to say thank you so much to those of you who have been helping this ministry continue through your prayers and gifts of support! Including those of you who are on our 30 Club who receive everything aired on DVDs each month. You guys really help with a consistency of finances which enables me to pay for the airtime each month. Also, to those who send in something whenever you receive this newsletter, and last but not least, those of you who seriously pray for my safety and the continuance of this ministry. Without such, this ministry would have been taken out a long time ago. Again, thank you ever so much!
Cyborgs at work: employees getting implanted with microchips
Self-described ―body hacker‖ Jowan Osterlund from Biohax Sweden, holds a small microchip implant.
The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee’s hand. Another “cyborg” is created. What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand. The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted. “The biggest benefit I think is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and CEO of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door by merely waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.” The technology in itself is not new. Such chips are used as virtual collar plates for pets. Companies use them to track deliveries. It’s just never been used to tag employees on a broad scale before. Epicenter and a handful of other companies are the first to make chip implants broadly available. And as with most new technologies, it raises security and privacy issues. While biologically safe, the data generated by the chips can show how often an employee comes to work or what they buy. Unlike company swipe cards or smart phones, which can generate the same data, a person cannot easily separate themselves from the chip. “Of course, putting things into your body is quite a big step to do and it was even for me at first,” said Mesterton, remembering how he initially had had doubts.
“But then on the other hand, I mean, people have been implanting things into their body, like pacemakers and stuff to control your heart,” he said. “That’s a way, way more serious thing than having a small chip that can actually communicate with devices.” Epicenter, which is home to more than 100 companies and some 2,000 workers, began implanting workers in January 2015. Now, about 150 workers have them. A company based in Belgium also offers its employees such implants, and there are isolated cases around the world where tech enthusiasts have tried this out in recent years. The small implants use Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, the same as in contactless credit cards or mobile payments. When activated by a reader a few centimeters (inches) away, a small amount of data flows between the two devices via electromagnetic waves. The implants are “passive,” meaning they contain information that other devices can read, but cannot read information themselves. Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute, says hackers could conceivably gain huge swathes of information from embedded microchips. The ethical dilemmas will become bigger the more sophisticated the microchips become. “The data that you could possibly get from a chip that is embedded in your body is a lot different from the data that you can get from a smart phone,” he says. “Conceptually you could get data about your health, you could get data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working and how long you’re working, if you’re taking toilet breaks and things like that.” Libberton said that if such data is collected, the big question remains of what happens to it; who uses it, and for what purpose. So far, Epicenter’s group of cyborgs doesn’t seem too concerned. “People ask me; ‘Are you chipped?’ and I say; ‘Yes, why not,'” said Fredric Kaijser, 47, the chief experience officer at Epicenter. “And they all get excited about privacy issues and what that means and so forth. And for me it’s just a matter of I like to try new things and just see it as more of an enabler and what that would bring into the future.” The implants have become so popular that Epicenter workers stage monthly events where attendees have the option of being “chipped” for free. That means visits from self-described “body hacker” Jowan Osterlund from Biohax Sweden who performs the “operation.” He injects the implants — using pre-loaded syringes — into the fleshy area of the hand, just next to the thumb. The process lasts a few seconds, and more often than not there are no screams and barely a drop of blood. “The next step for electronics is to move into the body,” he says. Sandra Haglof, 25, who works for Eventomatic, an events company that works with Epicenter, has had three piercings before, and her left hand barely shakes as Osterlund injects the small chip. “I want to be part of the future,” she laughs. Mark of the beast anyone? While the Mark of the Beast is not made mandatory until the middle of the 7 year tribulation period, 3 ½ years after the rapture, it is the job of the Church to warn others in the here and now. Perhaps the best way to do this is to show them the DVD titled: R.F.I.D. Man’s Greatest Invention or Mark of the Beast? It is available for a gift of any amount.
Israel‟s Ticking Time Clock (Bill Perkins)
(Yes, I do wish Bill used a KJV in the scriptures)
When I bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall be sanctified through them in the sight of the many nations. Ezekiel 39:27. In the not-too-distant future, Israel will again be in the forefront of God‘s actions on earth—and the whole world will be watching! Like the time of the Egyptian plagues, the world will again see God in visible action. I will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, ” declares the Lord GOD, “when I prove myself holy among you in their sight. Ezekiel 36:23. Currently we‘re living in the “Church Age,” and the Lord reveals Himself to individual people via His invisible Holy Spirit. But the Church Age will soon end with the sudden disappearance of all living Believers. A shocked world will immediately know things have changed. When the Rapture dust settles, the horrific seven-year Tribulation begins. All Hades will break loose on earth and close to Two billion people will die! TWO BILLION!!! I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8. That‘s a lot of tribulation! But we know that number is true because God inspired every word in the Bible. …no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one‘s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:20-21. So the Bible is penned by man, but 100% inspired/authored by God. It‘s perfect in every way, perfect in word, doctrine, design… even perfect in number. You can depend on His numbers—there will be BILLIONS who die in the Tribulation. The law of the LORD is perfect Psalms 19:7. Jesus left no doubt about how accurate God‘s Words are; For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished. Matthew 5:18. If God is the author of every word in the Bible, they are perfect and all prophecy will be fulfilled, then it‘s not surprising to see that numbers used in the Bible are consistent from Genesis through Revelation. For instance, when using the number 5, and/or multiples of 5, it always refers to grace. Jesus had 5 wounds on the cross. Almost all measurements in the Jewish Temple are multiples of 5. Eight is the number of new beginnings—there were 8 people on the Ark and the 8th day of the week is a new week. Forty is the number of testing—Jesus fasted in the desert 40 days and Israel wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. Six is the number of man—as in 666. But the most interesting of all the numbers is 7, God‘s number He uses to indicate “completion.” There are 7 days in a week and there were 7 days in the creation week. Israel had 490 years assigned to her by the Lord…and 7 years are still left to be fulfilled in the future called the “Tribulation” or “Time of Jacob‘s trouble.” Keep Your Eyes On Israel! We know we‘re very close to the end of the Church Age because Israel is being readied by God to again bring her and her land to the forefront of the world. Consider these fulfilled prophecies in the last 69 years: 1) In the latter days God would gather Israel back to her homeland after being scattered around the world. He did. When I bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies… Ezekiel 39:27….I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; Ezekiel 37:21. 2) Israel would return to their homelands a pure race. She did. And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel: Revelation 7:4 3) Israel would take over her land in a day. She did. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? Isaiah 66:8. 4) Israel would have a mighty army. She does. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.” Ezekiel 37:10. 5) Israel would have nuclear weapons. She does. Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth Zechariah 14:12 (Ezekiel 39:11-16). 6) The re-gathered nation would be a problem to the whole world. She is. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. Zechariah 12:3. 7) Iran would be her enemy. They are. Persia, with shield and helmet; Ezekiel 38:5. (In1932 Persia changed her name to Iran.) Israel is in her “re-gathering” period, a length of time predetermined by God. It‘s also called “The Time of God‘s Patience.”(1) So, for pure fun, how much time would you expect God to have Pre-determined for this period of time between Israel becoming a nation again and the start of the Tribulation? Using God‘s numbers as a guide, my guess is that it‘s likely to be 70 years, God‘s number for completion. Seventy years from 1948 puts us at 2018. For the record, let me repeat, this is not a prediction, merely an observation or a guess based on God‘s use of numbers in the past. But you could just as well theorize that God might count 70 years from Israel‘s takeover of Mount Moriah and the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem in 1967. Or it could be anywhere in between. We don‘t know for sure because the Rapture is a sign less event. But Israel‘s time clock is tick, tick, ticking. Keep your eyes on Israel!! Any way you slice it, we‘re definitely living in the last of the last days! How exciting that God has predetermined the day of our great titillating departure, and when it arrives, millions will be missing because we‘ll have disappeared in the twinkling of an eye! Exactly as predetermined on God‘s perfect schedule! Until that day, use us, Lord! Shalom!
That Computer Network of Things…
On April 7th a strange thing happened. I went to the Post Office as I do at least twice a week but they told me they couldn‘t mail out anything because of a computer problem. Everything had broke down. Funny, the power was still on, nothing like this ever happened before. When I got back to my cabin I found a message on my answering machine from a neighbor. Sandy and her husband had gone into the city of Woodland Park, about 45 minutes away. They had gone to the bank but the bank was unable to do anything for them due to a computer problem. They then went to the grocery store with some cash they still had to pick up a few things but it took almost an hour to get through the check-out because of this same computer problem. Everything had to be added up on paper instead of the cash register and apparently no one there knew how to count backwards to give them their proper change back. They then went to the gas station also with cash but the pump would only give them 37 cents of gas also due to this same computer problem. Took quite a while to even get that much! So as you can see, we don‘t need to wait for some nuclear bomb to go off taking out the power grid coast to coast. It only takes one hacker on his computer anywhere in the world! And you might remember on the news just weeks ago how a large city in Texas, was that Houston? Someone hacked into their emergency system causing all of their very loud sirens to go off at the same time causing mass hysteria. So, who you gonna call? Oh yea, in both instances, most cell phones couldn‘t get through to anyone! So, it doesn‘t really matter if you‘re using a credit card, cash or what kind of phone you use. The bottom line is the fact that these things are happening on a daily basis now and you need to be prepared! I believe the Lord shows me such things for a reason. You might want to see the DVD titled: Solar Survival. It‘s about a family who wanted to get off the power grid. They sort of learned as they went. They made some mistakes here and there which means you don‘t have to. It shows everything step by step and the best ways to go about things. It‘s available for a gift of any amount and feel free to share with others! Just ask for it by name: Solar Survival. We also received a new DVD titled „Living off the Grid: Wind Generator” which is a step by step film showing you how to construct your own wind generator! It is not just a small simple one made out of PVC blades, but a really large one you can out up 100 feet in case you need to go over trees or other obstacles. It would produce a lot of electricity! This is available for a gift of any amount this month.
Do the Scriptures Teach a Roman or Muslim Anti-christ?
Now we‘ve all learned the importance of the Shemitah years, one every 7 years. And we‘ve all experienced all 4 blood moons 2 years in a row with all 4 of them falling on the biblical feast days mentioned in Scripture. By the way, on that last one, the first Jesuit (secret society) pope in the history of the Roman Catholic Church came to America to meet with Obama to discuss secret things we were never told about, also by the way, Obama was born Barry Soroto but he changed his name to Barak Hussein Obama which literally means ―one who has fallen from heaven‖ and of course Obama went on to become the most powerful man in the world as our first Muslim President and for 8 years he did his best to destroy this country and when he finally did leave office, instead of moving to Hawaii as he said he was going to, he bought a rather large mansion less than 2 miles from the Whitehouse and has been trying to start a major revolution ever since. Now there‘s been this ongoing thing about will the anti-christ come from Rome, (a pope) or will he be a Muslim? I think we need to understand there‘s more than one person involved here. There‘s the anti-christ, but there‘s also the false prophet! Well, there‘s been an amazing thing that has taken place. Southwest Radio Ministries who is the oldest Christian radio ministry in the world organized a debate between Dr. Tommy Ice and Joel Richardson on this subject. Now this debate moderated by Larry Spargimino is about 2 ¾ hours long and is one debate that will go down in history! This amazing debate is now available on a DVD for a gift of any amount. There‘s no copyright on this so feel free make copies and share with others! Do the Scriptures Teach a Roman or Muslim Anti-Christ?
Christians Need Mass Exodus from Public Schools! ‘Shocked’ by millennial‟s who would have put Hillary in Oval Office
Dr. James Dobson, who founded Focus on the Family and now delivers his Christian and pro-family advice through Family Talk, is once again encouraging parents to withdraw their children from public schools. At least partly because he‘s “shocked” at the values, or lack thereof, exhibited by the millennial generation of young people, who are about ages 18-34.Trained as a teacher and psychologist, early in his career he was largely unaware of homeschooling, he explained on a recent series of broadcasts featuring guest E. Ray Moore of the Exodus Mandate, which encourages Christian parents to home school their children or put them in church-run Christian schools. Dobson recalled when he came to realize that the biblical mandate for parents to “train up a child in the way he should go‖ was a call for Christian parents to instruct their children at home or put them in Christian schools that would teach morality. “It was like putting a match to gasoline [for me],” he said in the conversation with Moore “I got it. I saw it.‖ That was more than three decades ago, and Moore credited Dobson‘s promotion then with a surge in homeschooling across the nation. Now, Dobson said, there‘s even more need for it, pointing to Moore‘s research. Moore cited the work of Dan Smith from the Nehemiah Institute who found that had only millennial‘s voted in the 2016 presidential race, the results would have been 504 Electoral College votes for Hillary Clinton and 23 for Donald Trump. Republicans would have carried only five states, Moore said. “That shocked me,” Dobson said, noting the far-left agenda pursued by Clinton along with her scandals. Dobson warned that Christians are losing the next generation. “They been propagandized and given a philosophy that in many cases is contrary to Scripture and what we believe,” he said. And it‘s largely because of the anti-Christian influences of public schools, attended by many impressionable and unprepared Christian children for six hours a day, 180 days a year for 12 or 13 formative years. They‘re exposed to LGBT teachings, evolution, a revisionist form of American history, Islam and worse. Moore, a retired military chaplain, now is president of Frontline Ministries Inc. and the director of the Exodus Mandate Project. He recalled being one of the pioneers of homeschooling in America. His four children now are all adult, with their own successful families and careers. “There‘s a scriptural pattern,‖ Moore explained. “The Bible‘s clear the Scripture assigns the education of children to the family with assistance from the church, not the government.” Even very young children are mean to each other in public school settings, he said, and many aren‘t equipped to handle it
Moore described the 2016 election as a “reprieve” for Christians, who now have time to correct the agenda of churches to include home school or Christian schools. “If we don‘t change the way we do education,” he said, “we‘ll lose the country. I‘m 73 and those coming behind us do not agree with their own parents.” Moore said the Bible commands children to be raised in the Lord, and public schools in many ways are overtly hostile to faith. But 80 percent of evangelicals still subject their children to public school classrooms. Dobson, who has been described by the New York Times as “the nation‘s most influential evangelical leader,” warned that schools today are even very different than they were a few years back. “We believe you can make a case with data that the main reason the culture and the next generation are turning away from traditional values, from the Gospel, from Christianity, is primarily because of the indoctrination of the public-school system,” Moore said. Dobson and Moore noted that even Jesus was homeschooled until he was 12 years old.
Critic warns ‘Shack’ author openly promoting universal salvation ‘He declares that sin does not separate anyone from God’
It‘s no longer up for debate. “The Shack” promotes “universal reconciliation,‖ a heretical doctrine that claims everyone in the world will eventually be saved by God and therefore there is no need to be concerned about hell. William Paul Young, author of the “Christian” bestselling book that is the source of the eponymous film, is out with another book, “Lies We Believe About God.” His new book contains claims that many Christians would find not just shocking, but blasphemous. Among the Young‘s “lies”: “God is a Christian, God is in control”, and the Cross was God‘s idea.” James De Young, a New Testament language and literature professor at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, wrote ‘Burning Down The Shack” to rebut what he claims are the heretical teachings in “The Shack.” He believes his former friend William Paul Young has now shown his hand with his latest work. “The new book clarifies once and for all that Paul Young believes all kinds of heretical things,” said De Young. “Why would he admit this? In a recent interview with Religious News Service Paul commented that he believes that the evangelical church is crumbling and he is on the cusp of a new reformation with new doctrine.” According to a March 3 article at RNS, Young refers to a major change within evangelicalism, “returning to an understanding of God in line with the early church fathers and mothers.”He is quoted as saying: “As the structures start to crumble, which they are, all of a sudden permission to ask the questions is emerging. I think that‘s a movement of the Holy Spirit. … I think we‘re on the cusp or inside the beginnings of a reformation.‖Indeed, Young calls for a “reformation” rather than “revival” on his website. Is one of the most successful “Christian” books in history actually promoting anti-Christian beliefs? Don’t be fooled. De Young, who knew Young well before “The Shack” was written, says Young is now being open about views he has long held.”In 2004, Paul confessed in a 103-page paper presented to a Christian forum that he was rejecting his evangelical paradigm, as he called it, and embracing universal or Christian reconciliation,” De Young said.”This, he said, changed his life. This heresy proclaims that God‘s love limits his other attributes, such as holiness and justice. Thus, everyone is going to confess Christ, either before one dies or afterward, so that hell ceases to exist and even the Devil and his angels go to heaven. What sort of heaven will this be? “There is no judgment in God, he does not express wrath, and every human being is his child. So I think that part of Paul‘s conversion to universal reconciliation stems from the background of his missionary parents working among peoples who had never heard the gospel and without confessing Christ they would be lost. Paul didn‘t like this so it helped push him into universal reconciliation. But in his paper, he makes it very clear that it is universal reconciliation that changed his life ” contrary to what he says about counseling.” De Young argues Young has long tried to conceal these views. “When Paul first wrote his novel, it was full of universal reconciliation and his two pastor friends objected to it, so the three of them spent a year trying to remove the universal reconciliation before publishing it in 2007. But it is still subtly there. I‘ve written “Burning Down the Shack‘” to expose it. For 10 years most people have been reluctant to believe what I‘ve been saying; and Paul has denied it.”Now, in his latest book, “Lies We Believe about God,‘ Young has brazenly declared that Christian theology is wrong. Each chapter deals with one of 28 ” lies‘ that we believe. And on page 118, he confesses that he has been a follower of universal reconciliation; that everyone is saved already no one needs to get saved. Also, he declares that sin does not separate anyone from God, that hell is not separation from God, that God is not in control of everything, that God does submit to human plans, that the Cross of Christ was man‘s idea not God‘s; that the sacrifice of Christ was not God‘s requirement, etc.”Young‘s background has received new attention recently as the author told the London Daily Mail he wrote “The Shack” as a way to deal with his pain from systematic sexual abuse as a child. Young told the British paper, “My dad didn‘t have the capacity to be a good father,” noting there was “brokenness in my family history.” He claims as a child he was systematically abused by the Dani Tribe in New Guinea, where his parents were missionaries. He was then molested by older boys when he went to boarding school, he said. De Young said this background certainly impacts the teachings in “The Shack.” “The revelation about Paul‘s background is nothing new, he‘s been telling this story for 10 years or more ” coextensive with the publishing of ‘The Shack,'” said De Young. “I did not know this story during the decade or more before 2007. It gains for him a tremendous sympathetic hearing and impels people to want to buy the book. I think that there is a great element of emotional manipulation going on in Young‘s public speeches, especially in churches.” Get a copy of the DVD: Burning Down the Shack by James DeYoung for a gift of any amount this month!
About That Super Bomb Trump Sent killing many ISIS Members
I believe it is important for us to understand those of the Muslim faith. These are people who put their faith in a false god. (Allah) But when things do not turn out well for them, they believe Allah is displeased with them and they back off from their terrorisms. Trump did the right thing and needs to do more. The problem is, we have been so caught up in being religiously correct, we have forgot this is a Satanic group who believe they are doing a service for their god Allah by murdering Christians and Jews and anyone else who are not Muslim. I wish they could all just be caught and become un-indoctrinated through the Bible but it may be too late for that now. There are many Muslims who have come to Christ and when they do, many become on fire for the Lord and start reaching out to other Muslims. This is what we should be praying for! Please do keep praying accordingly and do your best to bring them to Jesus before the door is closed.

About Those Mormons Out There…
Mormonism teaches that God is a man who lives near a mysterious star named Kolob. There with his multitudes of wives, there are tons of babies being brought forth. However these poor babies are spirit babies in need of a physical body. And according to Mormon doctrine, if you are a Mormon couple on Earth, when you bring forth a baby into the world one of the poor spirit babies from Kolob are beamed down to inhabit the baby on Earth. I know this may sound like something from ―Star Trek‖, but unfortunately this is officially taught in the Mormon Church. We must remember that the Mormon people are NOT the enemy, but VICTIMs of the enemy and they need people like us to reach out to them with the truth! If you would like to obtain any of the CD‘s or DVD‘s on Mormonism, you may pick out ONE absolutely FREE this month!! Just let me know the title when you request it!
About Those Jehovah‟s Witnesses Out There…
Jehovah‘s Witnesses believe and teach that Jesus Christ, the man who was here a little over 2000 years ago was really the arch angel Michael. And of course if you have a different Jesus you do not have salvation. They have also predicted the end of the world to take place in 1914, 1915, 1918 and 1925. Like the Mormons they too are NOT our enemy but VICTIMs of the enemy. They are also taught there is no literal Hell. Yet that is exactly where they are going unless we reach out to them with the truth. This month you may obtain any one CD or DVD dealing with this organization for FREE! This should help you become better equipped to reach out to them. Just let me know what the title is when you request one, and remember always feel free to make copies and share with others.
Need Glasses? Not much money?
Recently I needed to renew my driver‘s license which required an eye test which I failed. So before going in again, I started looking for the best prices on glasses. I needed them fast! So I checked out all those places that advertise something like (two pair of eyeglasses with a free eye exam $69.99) but they we all scams trying to sell you junk unless you up-graded which could cost you hundreds! Being poor as I am and with no insurance, I remembered an (as advertised on TV) ad for something called Dial Vision Adjustable Glasses. These were only $19.99 so I went on line, found the commercial and ordered a pair. But then because I needed them fast, I remembered Wal-Mart carries many of these (as seen on TV) things so I called and they had some in stock so I drove down and bought a pair. I must admit, these are great for driving, fishing, reading and pretty much everything else because they‘re adjustable. In case you can‘t find them at Wal-Mart or some other store, the toll free number I found is 1-855-668-1655. Hope this helps someone else out there!

I seem to have a rather strange sleeping disorder, I cannot get to sleep until 3am or 4am and then I am in la-la land much of the time in the day! I would appreciate your prayers that I can get back to a normal sleep schedule of going to bed much earlier in the evening so I may get up rested and have a full day to serve the Lord. I have also had a number of bizarre dreams when I do sleep. Some are blatantly from the enemy, and the others are very vivid but from areas I could never think up in my head. As an older man now if I am going to have dreams as the bible says I prefer they only come from the Lord. Also please keep Mary and Dudley in your prayers as well!
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 at this time. Yours because His:
