To Prepare Or Not To Prepare

It occurred to me a week or so ago, that while I have outlined a proposed recovery plan for our nation, I have never really outlined or enumerated what people should do in case the economy does indeed collapse like many economists think. Oh I have written and talked about, but not in a detailed point by point way. And while I think this should be done because it is better to be safe than sorry in light of God seemingly withholding His hand of protection and because so many people live in urban and suburban areas, there are of course no guarantees if, when and how it will unfold. So I will also share why doing a certain preparation may not work out. As of 11:45 pm Central Time on September 10, 2015, the National Debt according to www.usdebtclock.org is over 18 Trillion 381 Billion Dollars. That is over 154 Thousand Dollars per taxpayer and 57 Thousand Dollars per citizen.

Also, in case some you reading this haven't read others posts or watched videos, let me say again that we are to trust in the Lord with all of this. But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't do anything just like a person shouldn't trust in the Lord for providing a job for him without sending out applications and resumes. God ordains the means as well as the end.

1. Stock up on food. Long and not so long shelf life canned foods. If you will not be able to feed your family by hunting, fishing, and gardening, then this seems wise. Many people say that if the economy has a major collapse that food will not make it to the grocery stores. And don't forget about infants.

Some people believe that Martial Law will be implemented and that FEMA or another agency will not allow those who planned ahead with stocking up on food, to keep it. Also, in this scenario, hungry people will try to find those who have food and try to take it by force.

2. Stock up on water. If there are massive job losses and you cannot pay your water bill, what will you do? Also get you a good water filter. I read something recently reminding us of the three threes: three seconds without oxygen, three days without water, and three weeks without food is about the length of time our body can go without each of those. Experts says that our bodies need a minimum of 4.6 ounces of water per day, but that doesn't consider increased labor for gardening etc. Preppers say we should plan for one gallon of water per day per person.

However, as with the food, FEMA may not allow people to hang on to their water either.

3. Stock up on gasoline. If an EMP event is not involved and we can still use our vehicles, you will want to have gasoline to transport you to another location if you are not going to stay at home.

Many people think that we will be attacked by an EMP because our "enemies" know what will cripple us the most. Not only is it possible that FEMA will not let us keep gasoline, if you are part of a small percentage that thought ahead to stock upon gas, others that didn't may come for your gas and...vehicle.

4. So try to have one vehicle that's paid for to have for transportation. In an economic collapse,they still may repossess our vehicles that are not paid for if we can continue to make payments. Paying ahead a month or longer if you're able may "buy" you some time.

If there is an EMP event, not only will we not have electricity, our vehicles will not work. Do you have bicycles? What about tire repair kits?

5. Buy a generator. This may not help long term, but it could be a great help temporarily. I have read that propane generators are better because it is a cleaner fuel. If so, you should stock up on propane as well.

Again, God only know what FEMA or another agency will do, but I heard a man discuss recently that there would be the danger from those who may hear your generator running. Also, generators may not work in an EMP event.

6. Stock up on ammunition if you own any guns. Ammunition may be difficult if not impossible to come by after a major economic collapse. If you believe in it, you will likely need to protect your family from those hungry and thirsty people I mentioned that try to take any food, water, etc., that you stocked up on.

This is something that couples and families need to discuss ahead of time so everyone will be on the same page about whether to defend yourselves or not. When Martial Law has been declared in the past, the authorities came for the guns. If you own one or more guns, will you turn them in or hide them if/when "they" come for them?

7. Where will you live? Your home? Your church? Another person's home? Will you be able to stay at home long term if you want to? Is your mortgage paid off? Do you need to buy some time at home for a few months so that it would be wise to pay ahead on your mortgage payments? What about your property taxes? Maybe it would be a good idea to pay a year ahead on your property taxes if you plan on staying for a while?

Many believe that FEMA or another agency will not let people stay in their homes and churches even if they can? The reason why would lead us into conspiracy theories that may or may not be true. Whether due to alleged protection or control, it is still a real possibility. Have you talked to your church? Is your church property paid for? How much property does the church have? Will there be people that have no where else to go, there? Whether the church, or a family member whose home is paid for, it would be wise to discuss these things ahead of time rather than wait until something happens and possibly not be able to communicate with them.

8. Don't forget other things like matches, shovels, rakes, hoes, manual can openers, seeds, and any other item that is important or a necessity if you would not be able to get it at the store. Consider getting items just for bartering, since that will likely be the main way business is done if there is a major economic collapse.

Is it possible that there won't be a major collapse, but we'll keep having "great depressions" and experience hyperinflation? Yes, it's possible, but should we take that chance? Is it too late to do something about our economy? Many think that it is, and some like me think we should be more proactive to try to get them to reverse it until we see God's revealed will. Could the Lord come back before this would happen? Yes He could. But what if He doesn't? What if it  happens before a pre-tribulational rapture of the church following the dead in Christ rising first? What if we go through the tribulation period? What if the tribulation period occurred over 1900 years ago? What if God has already begun and continues restraining His hand of protection due to murder of the unborn, marketing baby's body parts, sex outside the bond of marriage between one man and one woman, same sex marriage, idolatry, and more? Should Christians be completely passive in what may take place? God gave Pharaoh  a dream for Joseph to interpret so that they would set aside food during the good years so they would have it during the bad years. Was God wrong for doing that? Of course not. Now maybe some people would say that God is not telling us that like He did for them. But isn't the principle still there? We have a responsibility to provide for our families. As long as we don't do it for our own glory and remember "if the Lord wills we will do this or do that" I think it is wise to prepare. What you do is between you and the Lord. But the economy is as such that there could be a major collapse any day, week, month, or year. We need to be wise stewards financially, but we can't take it with us either. When it is all said and done, Christians can rejoice because no one can take away the salvation Christ freely gave us through His sufficient, substitutionary, satisfactory, sacrifice, and glorious resurrection for those who are born again unto a repentant faith.

I close sharing again my two mottos:

I would rather be a fool for preparing for a major economic collapse and it doesn't happen, than be a fool for not preparing and it does happen.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, pray God's will be done.

10 Reasons Why People Should Own and Carry a Gun

Happy Labor Day from the U.S. Occupied state of Alabama (sorry, I just like saying that). Wow, there sure has been a lot going on even since my last post, which was 3 1/2 weeks ago. Violence everywhere. Economy getting worse. Gas prices here at 1.899 per gallon. While I have always believed gun ownership is biblical and constitutional, I never thought I would be where I am today with the Second Amendment. But perhaps some of you are like me and cannot do everything I talk about due to finances. I also was laid off and out of work for 3 months and still only working part time. When things like that happen you often need to sell things you have.

Having said all of that though,below are 10 reasons why I believe people should own and carry a gun. I know some may not believe in that, and I know some may need to learn how to shoot and practice if you get or have a gun. But here are my reasons for you to prayerfully consider doing so.


1. Race baiting and violence. There is a lot of violence going on between whites, blacks and hispanics. But sadly,the "lamestream" media is focusing on the white on black violence. President Obama has been making it worse by commenting on just the white on black violence. Add to him, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpten, and it makes it even worse.

2. Notorious Nation of Islam speaker (I'm not going to call him a preacher) Louis Farrakhan has called for the death of 10,000 white people.

3. The New Black Panthers has called for the death of white police officers.

4. Terrorists have been crossing the unprotected southern border with illegal immigrants.

5. Most of the illegal immigrants that have been crossing the southern border are criminals or gang members.

6. To help protect our police officers that are being attacked as we have seen in the news recently.
.
7. Even though Open Carry of guns is legal in many states such as the last three states we have lived in (Alabama, Florida, Idaho), many citizens are not aware of that right, haven't thought through the issue, and are fearful assuming the person is a "bad guy." Police officers feel obligated to check out complaints of citizens that Open Carry and some of those police officers unlawfully and unconstitutionally disarm or arrest the few but growing number of people that Open Carry. If more citizens would Open Carry then the public would be gradually get used to it and accept it.

8. Violence in general. Statistics have proven over and over again that those counties, cities or states that allow Open Carry or Concealed Carry without a permit, has much lower gun related crimes and violence.

9. If/when there is a major economic collapse you won't have access to or have the money to purchase guns and ammunition. There will be chaos, mayhem and violence after such an event occurs so that you may need to protect your family and property from those who would become lawless and unconstitutional.

10. Number 9 would also apply in the event of an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) event as the result of extreme solar flares that some experts say our world is due for at any time, or an enemy attack.

As a Christian, I believe that God is ultimately the one who protects His people. He certainly can do it without our use of guns. But also see throughout God's word the Bible that He ordains the means as well as the end. We also know this from experience. God doesn't need doctors and surgeries but uses them. He could get me a job while I do no searching, but He uses my searching. My hope and prayer is that I never have to shoot someone if I ever get in better financial shape and get another gun. But these reasons and perhaps some I have overlooked for now are good reasons why you may want to not only own a gun, but also open or conceal carry a gun. God's word permits it, and it is certainly constitutional. Soli Deo Gloria!

Is Ted Cruz That Man?

I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Ted Cruz in person on August 9th in Pelham Alabama. I liked what I heard and I believe him. I have shared on this Blog that I am not a republican and certainly not a democrat. I have not voted for either since the 2000 general election. I find the voting for the lesser of two evils and the best person that has the best chance of winning to be an unbiblical principle. Therefore, the person I believed that most lined up with biblical and constitutional principles in the last 3 general elections was not a democrat or republican. I could not bring myself to vote for John McCain and Mitt Romney, both RINOs in my opinion anyway and not true conservatives.

But this time, I don't think I have to go outside of the Grand Ole Party. I believe Ted Cruz to be the presidential candidate that lines up in almost every way constitutionally and more importantly biblically. Ted is a professing Christian. He believes in biblically and constitutional (I'm still amazed at why more Christians don't think those two should go together). Ted is fully pro life, pro eliminating the national deficit and reducing the national debt, pro small government, pro second amendment, pro no amnesty for illegal immigrants, and pro securing our borders. He recognizes and says that he will counter every executive order made by our current President (which should be all of them, because they are all unconstitutional and illegal when applied to non federal workers, even though Obama is not the first President to do it). And what I also think is important is that Ted Cruz can unite Christian voters, Constitutional voters, Conservative voters, and-and Third Party voters.

Look, getting someone like Cruz in won't solve all of our country's problems. We need another Great Awakening in our country. We need to see hearts changed by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel of God's Word. We need to see repentance of nationally condoned and accepted sins of murder in the mother's womb, sex outside the bond of marriage between one man and one woman until death do they part, same sex marriage, and more. Our trust ought not to rest in "the right candidate" but rather the One True God Who created and redeemed His people to worship and enjoy Him forever. But God has ordained our type government in the United States, and we should vote according the biblical standards. Ted could be a sham for all I know, but right now and the best that I can tell, he is the "Real McCoy" that I think Christians should rally behind in the Primaries for starters. But that's the problem isn't it, even born again Christians for the most part getting behind the same candidate. I'm amazed at the criteria of many Christians for their consideration of President. And how a born again Christian can support a Jeb or Donald, let alone a Democrat is, well, I'm at a loss of words for this comment. As with sin, it's just the corruption in us all that still remains until the first resurrection. Or resurrection 1a for my pre-trib friends :-).

Not my will, but God's will be done!

Where Will You Be?

Good Morning:

I'm up early today. Because I have worked nights so much, I'm usually up until 2 or 3am and get up around 10 or 11am. I have a Hiatal Hernia and GERD so some times, like this morning, I get up early. But I do have a job interview this morning as well.

I like to repeat two motto's that I have regarding this ministry and blog: 1) Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, pray for God's will to be done; 2) I would rather be a fool for preparing for the worst and nothing happen, than to be a fool for not preparing for the worst and something does happen.

One aspect if this ministry and overall idea of planning for an economic collapse and whether an EMP will accompany that, is if we are out and about somewhere if/when an EMP event happens. Now an EMP event may not happen with an economic collapse, but if it happens it would likely contribute to one. An EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) event can happen one of two ways: 1) Extreme solar flares from the sun which numerous groups have said could happen at any time as reported by even the mainstream media; 2) An attack by any of several countries. Our country's enemies know what would cripple us most. Supposedly, if an EMP device detonates in a strategic location above out country, it would knock out most of  the electrical grid in our nation and fry the circuits on our vehicles as well so that we would nit be able to drive our motorized vehicles. Newt Gingrich is one of the people talking about this, but my understanding is that he is also a globalist and possibly a Bilderberger.

I have read from a source or two that certain vehicles that are older that 1980 will restart, but not those 1980 and newer. Now how many of us have a vehicle that old? And since they would not be antiques, how many of us could afford to buy a vehicle that old IF we could find one?

But the point I am trying to get to, and what part of this ministry is about, is what you will do if an EMP event happens while you are away from home? If you work outside of your home, how far away from your home do you go? Whether it is your job, at family or friends, picking up your children from school, going to the grocery store and running errands, on vacation, you would have to walk home if that is your designated location in the case of an emergency. It would be wise, if you're not already doing this, to keep water, some food, and a pair of walking shoes in your trunk if you're not already wearing them. What about small children you may have with you?

Again, many of you out there may think this is extreme and would never happen. Are you sure? What if God already has begun, or begins to judge our nation, thereby withdrawing His hand of protection from our enemies? What if the so called earthly powers that be have an agenda against Americans? What if the many scientists are correct about solar flares from the sun one day knocking out some or most of the nation's power grid. And what if this happens before the Lord's return regardless of the timing of the dead in Christ rising first before the rapture of the church?

I have already been praying that the Lord may be pleased to prevent a possible EMP event in His kindness and mercy. Join me in praying for that, but also prayerfully consider preparing for that if you're able in case it does happen in God's sovereignty and providence.

Love and blessings!

I'm Pissed Off, Aren't You?

I'm pissed off, aren't you? Is that language unbecoming a Christian? There's probably some readers that are laughing that I would think that. There was a time when I didn't use the word "pissed" and would say "ticked" instead :-). Perhaps some of you prefer I use the latter word instead. :-)

Sometimes I wonder if I'm just one of a handful of people that are pissed off. Let's face it, the internet and social media does expand our friends and acquaintances, so in light of that it doesn't seem like many are pissed off like me.

Is it wrong to be pissed off? Is it wrong to apply "be ye angry and sin not..." to this? Well, for what it's worth, and to leave it to the Lord to use as He sees fit if at all, below is what I'm pissed off about. It is not in order of importance, but just as it comes to my mind again or for the first time.

I'm pissed off about the recent Supreme Court decision on homosexual and lesbian marriage.

I'm pissed off about "they" wanting to force all ordained ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for homosexuals and lesbians.

I'm pissed off about "they" wanting to take away tax exempt status from churches that will not perform weddings for homosexuals and lesbians.

I'm pissed off that so many churches have and will not give up 501c3 status.

I'm pissed off that there are so-called Christian Churches that are for same sex marriages, have homosexual or lesbian pastors and ministers, and even allow homosexuals and lesbians to be church members.

I'm pissed off about the number of babies that have been and continued to be murdered in the womb.

I'm pissed off about the harvesting, sale, and marketing of murdered baby parts.

I'm pissed off about those people who seem to be more concerned about trees, whales, and animals, than unborn babies.

I'm pissed off that so many people that claim to be a Christian, either support the right of women to murder their unborn baby, or are silent if they don't support it because of so-called political correctness.

I'm pissed off about so many that push tolerance when they are self deceived to see they are being intolerant while pushing such tolerance.

I'm pissed off that so many people, including professing Christians, can't see the difference between biblical tolerance and worldly unbiblical tolerance.

I'm pissed off about President Barack HUSSEIN Obama and just about everything he's done.

I'm pissed off that Presidents and their administrations have made unconstitutional executive orders since they do not constitutionally apply to non federal workers, and that more citizens do not realize that such executive orders are unconstitutional.

I'm pissed off that more people are not aware of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and how that applies to State Sovereignty, as well as the individual states themselves not taking advantage of States Rights.

I'm pissed off that so many people are so gullible to watch, listen to, read, and believe the mainstream media such as ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, The CW, CNN, MSNBC, etc., and not see their bias and how many things they do not report.

I'm pissed off that so many people are deceived into thinking that most Republicans would make a difference.

I'm pissed off about people, especially Christians, that believe in voting for the lesser of two evils and who they think has the best chance of winning.

I'm pissed off about what the unethical actions the GOP did to Ron Paul in the 2012 primary to keep him out and how many Christian Republicans seemed to ignore that.

I'm pissed off about the liberal politicians that want to take guns away from law abiding citizens.

I'm pissed off that liberals are so ignorant to not see how stupid Gun Free Zones, Businesses, Recruitment Centers, Etc. are, and that "bad guys" don't obey such restrictions.

I'm pissed off that more states will not drop the numerous gun restrictions that infringe on the 2nd Amendment including allowing Open Carry, and Concealed Carry with a permit.

I'm pissed off that more Christians don't see that if we are to apply Rom. 13 and 1Pet.2 to our government today, that it means that the U.S. Constitution is "our authority" that we are to obey unless it contradicts God's word, not those that make unconstitutional laws.

I'm pissed off about our National Debt that is over 18 Trillion 300 Billion Dollars that comes out to over 55,000 Dollars per person and 120,000 Dollars per taxpayer, not including unfunded liabilities, and that our federally elected officials are not doing anything about it.

I'm pissed off about the likely future our children and grandchildren will face if the Lord tarries His return for the Church, and the apathy of so many parents and grandparents.

I'm pissed off that so many Christians are so dogmatic about a Pre-tribulational rapture of the Church following Resurrection 1A :-).

I'm pissed off that more people have not joined the Fellowship of Concerned Christian Constitutional Patriots :-). www.fcccp.yolasite.com

I'm pissed off at myself that I haven't said and done more.

I'm pissed off about my own pride, lack of trust in the Lord, and SIN.

I'm pissed off about how many churches, including so called evangelical churches, have watered down and compromised the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I'm pissed off about how many so called evangelical churches do not have sufficient discipleship and/or biblical church accountability and correction.

I'm pissed off about how many Christians, including reformed/sovereign grace Christians, that say they hold to mankind's sin nature or being totally depraved, yet act like the federal government would never do certain and various evil things.

I'm pissed off that so many things are dismissed as Conspiracy Theories, even though some of them have been proven to be true such as Drones and FEMA Centers.

I'm pissed off about the power, greed, and deception of Big Pharma, the FDA, the AMA, the AHA, the ACS, that results in all kinds of toxic chemicals and GMOs being put in foods, withholding various treatments for cancer and auto immune diseases if they cannot patent it and make money off of it, or if it will cost them money.

I'm pissed off about the many people that are so quick to dismiss alternative treatments and solutions, and to accept radiation and chemotherapy.

I'm pissed off that more people haven't thought through and/or prepared for the consequences of an economic collapse, and what they would do to get food, water, other essentials, where they would live, how they would protect themselves, etc. should this happen and before the Lord's return.

I'm pissed off that so many churches will not do more to inform and help for this possible scenario.

I'm pissed off about the racism that exists in our country, and those promoting it such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, President Barack Hussein Obama, and more.

I'm pissed off that many people actually think a person is a racist if they disagree with Obama's views and actions, but not if a person agrees with his views and actions just because of his skin color.

I'm pissed off with White Supremacists, Black Panthers, and the like.

I'm pissed off about Affirmative Action.

I'm pissed off that it is very difficult for a white man in his mid to late 50s to get a job.

I'm pissed off that feminists are so blind that they support radical Muslims considering what they think about women.

I'm pissed off that radical Muslims want to kill Christians, Jews, and other infidels.

I'm pissed off that most if not all non radical Muslims will not speak out against the actions and comments of radical Muslims.

I'm pissed off that so many people are so deceived in thinking that the federal government is really that stupid when it comes to recent terrorist attacks, protecting the southern border, and gun control.

I'm pissed off about the Illegal Immigrant problem, Amnesty, and southern border.

I'm pissed off that we'll give other countries billions and billions of dollars that we don't really have, and yet won't spend money on the southern border.

I'm pissed off about Obama Care.

I'm pissed off that there are so many people that have not contributed to "the system" and get federal benefits, but they want to give a hard time to those needing it about getting Social Security Disability.

I'm pissed off about double taxation, over taxation, sales tax on food and medicine, and property tax.

I'm pissed off about churches that discriminate against older pastors and those who are not seminary or bible college trained.

I'm pissed off about word of faith and prosperity preaching churches.

I'm pissed off with Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Freddy Price, Paula White, Joyce Meyer, and the like.

I'm pissed off with the Watch Tower and Tract Society (JWs), Latter Day Saints (Mormons) and Roman Catholic Church, for their false teaching and deceiving many.

I'm pissed that there is such a lack of spiritual discernment in the visible body of Christ regarding false teaching and teachers.

I'm pissed off that more people are not pissed off.

I'm pissed off that all that is happening could result in another civil or revolutionary war, and that this may be what the U.N., Federal Government, Council on Foreign Relations, and Bilderbergers want.

I'm pissed off that most of my physical and spiritual family and friends think that I'm out in left field with most if not all of these things :-).

I'm pissed off that I'm pissed off and writing this Blog Post :-).

How many is that? Over 50 I think, but too many. Am I really pissed off? Maybe not in the way many people may think that means. But was Jesus pissed off with the money changers in the Temple and with the Pharisees? Was David pissed off as recorded in the Psalms?

My spiritual goal is to be biblically balanced regarding these things, and to be pissed off with the things God would have me to be pissed off with. God is all powerful and sovereign, and in control of every thing that happens in this universe, world, and country. But God ordains the means as well as the end while man is also responsible for his actions. We should not worry and sorrow as those who have no hope. This world is not the born again Christian's permanent home and final destination, but it is our temporary home until He takes us home individually or returns for the dead in Christ and the church. I don't think God's word teaches Christians are to be pacifists, and that we have a responsibility to protect and defend our families. Just not in the way the world would do it. God's word says we are to submit to the governing authority, and for us in this day and time, it seems to me to be the Constitution unless it contradicts God word. For as the apostles said as recorded in God's word, we ought to obey God rather than man.

Questions For Church Leaders About Dealing With The Economy and Constitutional Issues

Okay, I admit I'm struggling about why many local church leaders will not talk to their congregation about the possible consequences of an economic collapse if it occurs before the Lord returns. God in His providence and sovereignty had us move back near family due to me recently being laid off by my previous employer in central Florida. I'm thankful that I am now in a church where the pastor does want the congregation to receive information that may be helpful to them in the event of an economic collapse. On July 6, 2015 at 1:20am Central Time, the national debt according to usdebtclock.org is over 18 Trillion 294 Billion Dollars and climbing! I love Christ and His Church. I consider myself to be a sovereign grace Baptist Christian. I believe God's word teaches that He is sovereign and has ordained all that comes to pass, but I also believe His word teaches man's responsibility and that God ordains the means as well as the end. I have pastored for 14 years and I'm seeking the Lord's will about whether He would have me pastor another church or be a fellow elder at my new current church (I have been inactive for 3 years now). So I have a bunch of questions for Church Pastors, Elders, and Leaders (I use 'Leaders' too because of the different types of church government in the various churches) that will also have some comments mixed in with them :-).

Church Leaders will teach/educate/inform about numerous other temporal issues, but for some reason this issue is off limits for most? Why? If you are a pastor reading this, please help me understand. You claim to love the people God has put before you to under-shepherd. Is it because you think it won't happen? Is it because you're sure that the Lord will come back before it happens? Is it because you don't dealing with these issues belongs in the church in any aspect at all?
What if the economy does collapse before the Lord returns regardless of your eschatological view? What if such a collapse results in food not being able make it from producers to stores? What if many cannot live off their land? What if many do not own their home free and clear? Is anyone in the church teaching what they can do at home? Does the church have a plan in place to help in anyway? I'm not talking about doing these things in the place of worship services. Can't the church provide material for their flock? Can't the church have a class during the week dealing with these issues? Should the church also have a food pantry for their members if the economy does collapse and there is not access to food in stores? Does the church have paid-for property for their folks to live on if they can't stay at home? As I'm typing these, I am watching about what's going on in Greece. Do you think that can't happen in our country? Do you believe that power corrupts? Should churches be talking to elected officials now about preventing possible mandatory evacuation to FEMA Centers and Camps? Do you think the would not do that? Do you know what happened in the New Orleans area during Hurricane Katrina? Is the church required to submit to unconstitutional executive orders and actions since we are a constitutional republic and our elected officials swear an oath to uphold the constitution? How do you think the congregation will react if the economy does collapse and the Church Leaders didn't provide any information or talk to them at all? Isn't it better to plan and prepare and nothing happen than to not plan and prepare and something does happen? Is planning for the possibility of an economic collapse unbiblical if it is done with the right motive and biblical balance? Are we to just wait and see if it happens and then deal with it from there when we have so many people living in urban and suburban communities that cannot live off of their land? Does planning and preparing mean that they are worrying and/or laying up treasures on the earth? Was Joseph and Pharaoh wrong for setting aside crops during their plentiful years to prepare for the lean years? Are those that do not provide for their own worse than unbelievers, and would this still apply if no preparations were made in light of what it would be like for people living in urban and suburban areas? What about guns for protection? Is that biblically permissible?

I have the utmost respect for many of my pastor friends, acquaintances, and some I have never met even online. If I can help in anyway, please let me know. I would be glad to speak at your church and/or provide information that I will soon be putting together. Much of it is already on this Blog and our website. I hope those reading this will share it with as many as possible and that pastors and other church leaders will prayerfully consider this blog post. It can be done without making it an idol and disrupting the worship service and existing ministries.

"The Breath of Gabriel" by Patti Kay

The more our nation turns away from God and becomes more secular and corrupt within, the more we pull away and abandon Israel without. Just in the past year Isis has risen like a scourge across Syria and Iraq.... Vladimir Putin has invaded the state of Crimea in the sovereign nation of the Ukraine.... Israel was engaged in an all out war with Hamas.... China has created man made islands they are militarizing in international waters that they claim as their territory by usurp. Our President aligns himself with Iran and aids their race towards achieving nuclear arms while openly snubbing Israel. This is the certain and dangerous path to a total nuclearized Middle East. Here in our own country lawlessness has taken over the streets in many cities under the guise of "hands up, don't shoot". In many places, the police have just given up causing crime rates to soar. Con men and opportunists stir the pot on all sides thus sewing the seeds of division the likes of which we have not seen since the eve of the Civil War. Our first amendment rights are in dire jeopardy as social media outlets and internet search engines begin to hire people and install new software to ferret out dissenters to the new morally bankrupt social order. Why should we care about that when our own government violates our freedom and 4th Amendment rights through illegal acts such as the NDAA? Others celebrate the perversion of marriage as handed down in the new law of the land from the judiciary- not the legislature- thus rendering the very constitutional bedrock of our nation null an void. We see it celebrated in the streets where half naked revelers spit on the clergy and make a mockery of God in displays of crucifixion effigies and the hijacking of God's rainbow symbol. Welcome to Sodom and Gomorrah 2.0. The liberal media is the new mother and father of our children; shaping their minds through the addiction to innovative gadgetry- to think and believe as they chose- while real parents slave in jobs to pay ever increasing debts and taxes to a bloated feckless government that promotes sloth amongst those made psychologically crippled by the false notion that they are owed something merely because they exist. Christians are being persecuted far and wide- beheaded over there and silenced over here. People of good faith cower inside themselves afraid to speak out or speak up for fear of reprisals on the job and in social circles. There are far worse things in this world than being offended and we do not have to look far to see these assaults forming to the right and to the left of us with each news cycle. We bow to what we think, to what we desire, and use those things to create who we would like God to be- without ever considering the one true God who created us or who God really is and what He wants and what He has ordained through divine law. False prophets draw those folks in like sheep selling their books and peddling their lies while people are lured into thinking they can have it all if they just follow the trickery of positive psychology- never mind God. The hour is getting late my friends and I truly do not care who may be angered by this message. I am deeply disgusted by all of this and I know many of you are as well. Some have ears to hear, others, well.... their hearts are hardened beyond hope. The truth is just that- the truth- and so often times the truth hurts. It would be easier if I never said any of this and just kept my mouth shut and just put up pictures of flowers and puppies and other meaningless crap. Why bother? Why put myself out there?Well, that's just not me to keep it all inside. If I wake up tomorrow and have no more friends here that will have to be okay too. Sometimes things just have to be said and a person has to take a stand for what they believe in their heart. If you haven't yet...... I urge you to come to Christ and repent before Gabriel draws his breath to sound the horn. God loves you and so do I.

Personal, FCCCP, and National Debt Update

Greetings Saints and Ain'ts :-)

Sorry I haven't posted on here in a while (but I have many times in Facebook). For those who don't already know, I was laid off by my employer in May 2015, and we moved back to our house in Alabama with our oldest daughter.

In addition to have a face to face with Congressman Daniel Webster in early 2015, I would have had a face to face with the Sherriff of Polk County Florida if we didn't move.

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I think being a member of the FCCCP may help you get a meeting with various representatives and elected officials at all levels, and encourage you to do so.

On 6/15/15 usdebtclock.org days that our national Debt is now over 18 Trillion 267 Billion Dollars and still rapidly climbing. That comes out to almost $57,000 per citizen and over $154,000 per taxpayer not counting all the unfunded liability which puts it about a million dollars per taxpayer.

What are you doing in case the doo-doo hits the fan before the Lord returns?

Voting For the Lesser of Two Evils?

Hello Again Fellow Patriots and Citizens:

Well, it's that time again when various current and former Senators, Congressmen, Governors announce their candidacy for President of the United States. So far, we have Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker(?), and Hillary Clinton in the chase. It's only April 21, 2015 at the time of this post, so of course we have about a year and a half until the General Election.

It's that time when many Christians will use the principle of voting for "the lesser of two evils" for President. As a reminder for some, and new information for others, I am registered as an Independent. Since I turned 18 just after the 1976 General Election, my first one was the 1980 General Election. I have voted for Reagan twice, Dukakis (oops), George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, Michael Peroutka (Constitution Party), Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party), and Virgil Goode (Constitution Party).

It was before the 2004 General Election that I decided to give up voting for the "lesser of two evils" for President. I voted for Ron Paul in the primaries in 2012 and would have voted for him again if he would have been the Republican candidate for the General Election (there was some unethical maneuvering going on in that GOP Convention to keep Ron Paul out that many Christians seemed to look the other way about). I just came to a point, that I believe was a conviction from the Lord, that I could no longer vote for the lesser of two evils. It just seems to me that the biblical principle is, as with other things we decide on, to vote for the person that most lines up with biblical values and principles and leave the results to God. Wow, that's a radical concept for a Christian isn't it?

As Founder and Director of the FCCCP I will not officially endorse a candidate in that capacity. A person does not have to be a member of a particular political party to be a member of the FCCCP. But I do hope that Christians will pray about whether voting for the lesser of two evils is biblical or not. In my opinion it is not. Besides, where would that end? What if we had a Socialist Republican and Communist Democrat as the GOP and Democratic candidates for the 2020 General Election? Still vote for the lesser of two evils? Perhaps, just perhaps, from the human perspective, if most Christians would stop voting like that, we may be able to get someone in there that can make godly changes with God's blessing.

On a personal level, I will say that Ted Cruz is an early favorite for me so far. Perhaps a professing Christian and Constitutionalist is unelectable. But as for me and my house? We will vote for the person that most lines up biblically first, and constitutionally second, and leave the results to our sovereign Lord. Please prayerfully consider this as well.

Blessings in Christ,

28000 Pastors Will Know the Date of Martial Law Implementation?

"Many people in the independent media have reported that an estimated 28,000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and that their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS version of Romans 13. Romans 13, in the King James version of the Bible, begins:
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1
Many of us have been quick to point out that this bastardization of the Romans 13 is designed to force compliance to government edicts who might not otherwise comply. Certainly all governments are not established by God. Were the governments of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, all ordained by God? What about George the III?

All of Pastor Mansfield’s revelations stem from legislation known as, The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 which mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”. Hence, the birth of NOVAD and the Clergy Response Teams.
The bill also provides that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs”, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security. This a carte blanche mandate that many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting following a national emergency or a total economic collapse."

March 30, 2015 Update

Greetings everyone. Sorry that there hasn't been any posts for a while. Like some of you, we've just had some things going on. For us, my wife's oldest brother passed away on 3/12, and this past weekend we moved to another location locally.

I had a meeting with my U.S. Congressman about 3 weeks ago. He agrees that our economy is in trouble but pretty much said that there are not enough congressmen and senators to do enough about it. He also doesn't think FEMA has enough funds to enforce mandatory evacuation to FEMA Centers in the event of a economic, man-made, or natural disaster, but he didn't rule out that another agency may enforce it. We touched on a couple of other points, but nothing really came of those, and the rest there wasn't enough time to cover.

Our national debt now 18 Trillion 167 Billion plus dollars as of 12:45pm on 3/30/15 according to www.usdebtclock.org.

If you're reading this and haven't joined us yet, please do so. I'm pretty sure that this Fellowship is what helped get me a meeting with the Congressman (Daniel Webster by the way).

I hope all are well in the Lord. God is sovereign and all-powerful, but that doesn't negate human responsibility. Soli Deo Gloria!!!

10 Reasons Why We Are Being Poisoned

10 Reasons Why We Are Being Poisoned


Do I think we are being poisoned? In the opinion of this writer, the answer is yes.
Why would I say such a thing? Well, I have done a lot of reading over the years
and have been trying to put the pieces of a puzzle together. I have actually thought
this for a couple of years or so, and may have a Blog article about it some where.
But here are 10 Reasons why I think we are being poisoned:

1. Water: There is all kinds of toxic substances and pharmaceutical drugs in our
water supply. No one should be drinking tap water without a decent water filter.
But most water filters will not remove the fluoride that most municipalities
add. The fluoride that is added is derived from waste. There are warning labels
on the 55 gallon drums that store it. While it is debatable on whether fluoride
really helps our teeth in the long run, it was intended to go in toothpaste that
would be spit back out, not ingested with water along with sugary drinks and 
sweet tea that use tap water. This writer just ordered a filtered water pitcher that
just came out that removes fluoride, and I encourage everyone that reads this to
do the same. We have also been drinking bottled spring water because that is
supposed to have little or no fluoride in it. Just contact me and I will get you
the information on the new water pitchers if you're interested.

2. Aspertame: You know, that artificial sweetner that is in all kinds of diet
drinks and foods. Bad news folks! Don't just take my word for it, do your own
research. Really, any artificial sweetner is bad for you because anything that
is not a natural food is toxic to our bodies. But in my opinion, Aspertame is at
the top of the list of artificial sweetners.

3. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG): This is a concentrated salt that is added to
various foods to enhance flavoring, that many food manufacturers hide by using
other terms including but not limited to Natural Flavoring and Carrageenan. It
is added to most snack foods and a lot of restaurant foods. It is not good for
you and should be avoided if possible. Again, do your own research if you don't
believe me  :-).

4. Chem-Trails: What-trails, you may be thinking? This one for some reason really
irritates me. These so-called Chem-Trails are toxic chemicals that are being
sprayed up in the sky supposedly in the name in slowing or stopping global
warming. Yes, global warming! You know, that problem that our planet is
supposedly having that is so rediculous and that Al Gore is still preaching about.
These very toxic chemicals are being sprayed all over the country and can be seen
even though most Americans think it is just normal contrail from jet airplanes IF
they even notice. Contrails don't linger and follow the plane, whereas chem-trails
stay in the sky. What I also think is very interesting and telling, is that these chem-trails
are even showing up in animated movies in an attempt to make it look normal. Each
State's elected leaders need to put a stop to the spraying of these chemicals that are
carcinogenic and God knows what else they may be doing to our bodies.

5. Artificial Food Coloring: Yes, even this seemingly innocent act of making
various foods and deserts pleasing to the eye, is bad for you and can cause
cancer if they don't use a natural food coloring.

6. Toxic Pesticides and Fertilizers: Very bad for us. There are natural
alternatives that can be used.

7. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs): They think it is helping our food
supply, but from what I'm reading it is making it worse. The GMOs are not good
for us either. And when a state tries to pass laws to show GMOs on labels, the
corporations affected go on an all-out campaign to scare voters into voting no.

8. Brominated Vegetable Oil: I don't know why they are putting this in various sodas but they are. It used to be in Mountain Dew, but I think they finally agreed to stop. But check the label because I don't think they took the ones that contain it off the shelves and it could be that they have not all been consumed yet. It is very deceptive to call it any kind of vegetable oil and this so-called vegetable oil contains the same ingredient that is used in Flame Retardants. Just a week ago (Jan.2015) I saw this listed in two different kinds of fruit flavored drinks. As with other chemicals, this is not good for your body and should be avoided. If you want to drink sugary drinks, there should be enough out there that does not use this toxic ingredient.

9. Vaccinations: I don't know if they are all bad or not. But as one person recently commented, they have increased exponentially over the years. It's bad enough when they but the strain of the virus in you to try to immunize someone, but they often add very toxic chemicals such as mercury. There is no proof they such vaccinations really help and there may even be research to the contrary. There is also a link between various vaccines and autism. And do you remember the H1N1 virus and when they pushed that dangerous vaccination on us? Well a couple of years ago they just added it to the flu shot. They told us about it at first and then we didn't hear any more about it, so I don't know if it is still in the flu shot and they just don't tell us anymore or if they took it out of the flu shot. It would be wise to find out first. This writer take mega doses of Vitamin D3 almost every day. It is not only good for your heart and fighting free radical and cancer cell, it is also said that a flu shot may not be necessary. Speaking for myself, I have not gotten the flu ever since I have been taking 5000 to 15000 IUs of Vitamin D3 almost daily.

10. Prescription Drugs: Anything that is not a natural food is toxic and possibly carcinogenic to our bodies. Do we pay attention to the side affects mentioned with the various prescription drugs? Even over-the-counter drugs? There are many natural alternatives available to help with even serious diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and more. The problem is that the AMA, ACS, Big Pharma, and even the FDA, are in cahoots with each other because it seems it is more about greed and control than helping people. And if there is any truth to the conspiracy theory, it is really about reducing population growth and dumbing down the populace.

There are of course other ways that we are being poisoned whether it is intentional or not. I have trouble accepting that the FDA and companies that produce this stuff don't know what it is doing to our bodies. And I don't always practice what I preach regarding some of the ten things mentioned above. It is true that we are all going to die sooner or later and spend an eternity somewhere. The most important thing is if we have been saved from penalty of our sins through the perfect life, sufficient sacrifice, and glorious resurrection of the God-man Jesus the Christ. Are you trusting in the Persona and Finished Work of Christ with a repentant faith. God has numbered our days, and I'm a firm believer that those days are fixed. But God also ordains the means as well as the end, and our "quality of life" can still affected be affected these "10 Reasons" and more. Most if not all of our diseases are a result of unnatural foods and substances we put in our bodies and the lack of sufficient vitamins and minerals in our bodies. I am no expert! I have just been doing a lot od reading and online research since I was diagnosed with a non aggressive form of prostate cancer in April 2011. I hope this brief article will be a help and blessing to others.

National Debt Update

According to usdebtclock.org on Jan. 28, 2015 at 4:55pm, the U.S. National Debt is coming up on 18 Trillion 101 Billion Dollars, and still rapidly climbing.

And while those low gas prices may be nice, they are not good. If it continues it could lead to further rigs closing, companies shutting down, a junk bond crash, and a stock market crash.

Hope for best, prepare for the worse, pray for wisdom and God's will to be done.

National Debt Update

Greetings Saints and Ain'ts :-)

At the time and date of this post, our national debt according to www.usdebtclock.org is over 18 Trillion 87 Billion Dollars. That comes out to over 56 Thousand Dollars per citizen and over 154 Thousand Dollars per taxpayer. Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst, and pray for wisdom from God and His will to be done.
