-And the LORD answered me, and said,
             Write the vision,and make it plain upon tables,
                    that he may run that readeth it.

 - What I See...

A quick look (15 pages) at some trends I see and don't see. Trends in the economy, trends in 'people control' and spiritual matters


 - Collision Course

Each and every passing day, we who know Christ can see our nation is on a collision course with God. On a number of fronts the nation has just decided to set its face against the God who blessed us and move its spiritual foundations towards the spiritual foes of both God and man.


      - Prison Labor Industry

      Slave labor cleverly

      disguised.


 - Special Report: Watson's Economic Crisis Report 

   

This issue of my new series of paid reports deals with the ongoing global economic crisis. Its about 40 pages and deals with a wide range of issues that face the western world. This touches on America's decline, Obama's new Treasury pick, the ongoing debt crisis, the Fed and Treasuries debt monetization operations, currency wars, scenario's for major troubles in China, Europe's ongoing crisis and ...

 - 3 Short Commentaries

   

Entitled Not Afraid, Tough Decisions and Job's Sufferings. God will take care of his people. Just make sure brothers when its our time to pass over our own spiritual 'river Jordan', that we make our deaths count for something, that being Christ. If we are to die as Christians for the gospel and the word of our testimony (Rev 19:10, 12:17, 12:11), let us rejoice because we have long and honorable heritage of those who went before us.

 -  Lamentations Are Coming 

   

I think we as Christians need to keep in mind and prepare our souls for what is really coming. Mr. Leal has done a good job of laying out that a time of great sorrow will sweep America.

 -  The Curse 

   

When a nation decides to put the stamp of approval on those things God hates, it invites a curse. And be certain of this, without some real soul searching repentance, a curse is what is going to hit us. America has enjoyed prosperity like no other nation on earth. Military power like no other nation on earth. Good will and diplomatic strength like no other nation on earth. Why? We as a nation respected ...

 -  I Have A Dream Vs. I Have A Drone 

   

I think it should be noted that while some people will say they find something 'highly offensive' when they do not really mean it, I want to make clear that I really do mean it, it is personally highly offensive to compare Dr. King and President Obama. If a person wants to worship Obama and idolize him, that is their business, not mine. But before anyone attempts to cast dispersions on Dr. King by ...

 -  Mali: Africa Must Take The Lead 

   

This crisis in Mali... first off, this is not just 'another war'. This is a very serious and potent threat to African continental security.

  Watson's Economic And Political Review (WEPR) #2 

   

This issue is mostly about American oil and leadership. It is a 30 page overview of America's oil situation and new claims that America will one day surpass the Saudi's in Oil production and become energy independent. The question is an extremely important one and could really alter the whole geopolitical landscape... if true. Are these claims real and credible? Are there any problems with them? This ...

 - Watson's Economic And Political Review (WEPR) #1 

   

This is going to be bad news for many of my readers, but a small portion of my secular writings are going to have to go pay. I have done a pretty good job with this update (if I do say so myself!) dealing with issues that I know many care about. Namely Iran and what a war or 'regime change' is likely to bring about, the EU crisis and how the ongoing economic crisis could deeply effect the US. Keep ...

 -  The Holiday Season 

   

Christmas has been a matter of some controversy for a number of reasons. First off, one of the few things we can be certain of about Christmas is that Christ was not born on December 25th, or anywhere near it. When was Christ Born? We do not know, though some scholars have said that it was more likely an event that occurred in the Fall, though the evidence for this is rather scant. What we do know ...

 -  There Is A Generation... 

   

What does it mean to live in our times, having been touched by God's spirit and understanding what God requires of us? It means that we are going to have a hard time fitting in with the current generation. This is the way it should be, since we are of a very different heritage. The scriptures talk about times like ours and what kinds of people will inhabit the earth just before Christ returns. We ...

  The Way Back 

   

For many of my readers, the way back to God is the road you are on. Many of you have fallen away and for whatever reason, personal tragedy, hard times or just a dissatisfaction with worldly 'satanic' living that did not make you nearly as happy as you thought it would. I find it interesting that so many people here in America have just about everything and yet are totally miserable. I am struck by ...

 - What's Expected Of Son's And Heir's 

   

What should we as Christians should be doing in these times? As these days grow darker and increasingly rejects Christ and genuine Christianity, we who wish to get into the kingdom must know what God wants us to do. What does God expect of us, we who are determined no matter what comes, to get into God's kingdom and avoid his holy wrath, which I bear witness, is coming to this world and will usher ...

 - In The Kingdom Of The Blind 

   

Today, it is extremely important that we know what is happening in our world, particularly from a prophetic standpoint. Why? The return of Christ is our blessed hope. God spoke clearly and insistently that we are to be watching and ready for our Lords return. Yet as I speak to Christians, I just don't see any level of spiritual discernment in their lives or minds Mind you there are always some exceptions ...

 - We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Broadcast To Bring You... 

   

But when it comes to the times and seasons and understanding them, Christians I know as well are floundering. They are often confused and unsure about what to believe. They listen to their pastors, read the news, but more and more are seriously questioning both. This is a good thing at least as a first step, but often leads to confusion, depression and can lead to apostasy. Why? Because such Christians ...

 - Culling The World's Population 

   

Yes, there is a plan afoot to reduce the human population. Most of the plan is hidden in plain sight.

 -  Political, Economic And Spiritual Review (Summer 2012) 

   

Fifty-three pages that looks at several issues facing our world today. From the economic crisis to food and eugenics to Syria as well a look at what a Mitt Romney Presidency may look like.

 -  Judge Not! 

   

...Lest ye be judged.

 - The Blessings Of Obedience 

   

Has the devil fooled you into thinking you can be saved and not obey the Lord?

  From Another World 

   

Christians, real ones that is, must conduct themselves as though they are from another world. A real Christian, is not of this world but of the Kingdom of God and his Christ.

 


-  From The North 

   

A prophetic look at the Arctic. The Arctic you ask? Yes the Actic and how it may relate to Babylon's fall.

如同在挪亞的日子裏


在挪亞的日子裏他們都在做些什麼呢?基督告訴我們在 他回來摧毀人類和魔鬼的惡行之前的世界將會如同挪亞時的日子。


挪亞的日子怎樣,人子降臨也要怎樣。當洪水以前的日子,人照常吃喝嫁娶,直到挪 亞進方舟的那日,不知不覺洪水來了,把他們全都沖去。人子降臨也要這樣。

(馬太福音2437-39)


那時的人每天都沉溺於歡笑中,盡情的享樂。而當挪亞一進方舟,神的審判就降臨 了。所有的人都死了。基督說什麼了?〝他們不知不覺〞。他們不知道,或以現代的說法來講,他們對即將發生的 事一點頭緒都沒有。即使在挪亞對他們宣道多年之後。我忠誠的希望,這個網站能幫助所有的人在這末世裏不要像 他們一樣一無所知,而是能明白當今的時候,知道當預言實現的時候,有線電視新聞是幾乎不可能告知我們的。預 言的實現通常是不明顯的,所以沒人會注意到。它幾乎就是隱密的發生,只有那些時時注意,知道如何辨識跡象的 人才能看見。


我們應當注意並保持清醒(頭腦清楚的,嚴肅的),以至我們能夠不同於世人,就如主耶穌告誡我們,


你們要謹慎,恐怕因貪食、醉酒,並今生的思慮累住你們的心,那日子就如同網羅忽 然臨到你們,因為那日子要這樣臨到全地上一切居住的人。

(路加福音2134-35)


世上有兩種人。那些有意識能認知的人,和那些沒有意識不能認知的人。因此要獲得 最終的救贖有兩個要件,那就是要能認知和要有意識。沒有這兩者,基督再來時就沒有人能獲救贖。


仔細的聽好了,我認為這是有必要的。如果預言實現的 所有征兆都那麼明顯,那麼我們就不需要神的話了。但是基督告訴我們並非如此。我們必須明白現在是什麼時候, 並且知道預言性的事件是如何演變的。這對末世裏的基督徒來說是必要的,沒有其他選擇。必要,是因為迷惑將會 是非常大的,當日子逼近的時候,甚至神的選民都可能會被蒙騙(馬太福音2424)。這個世界將掉在陷阱裏。但我們知道時日,實行神的 誡命的人是不會掉在裏面的。弟兄姊妹們,請聽我說,尤其是你們因為那些不把世上所發生的事,或是不把遭到殘 暴迫害的其他基督徒當一回事的,所謂的基督徒,而感到灰心憤怒的人。那些人永遠不會看見。他們的眼睛是瞎 的。實際上我確信這強烈的迷惑已慢慢的傾出,許多基督徒正從魔鬼的毒杯裏喝著欺騙的謊言。他們已經做了選擇 去聽從魔鬼,而忽視神的守望者、先知和忠實的牧師所告訴他們的話。


只有那些警醒的人才會知道,其餘的人將會掉在主的陷 阱裏而淪於萬劫不復的境地。我們如何避免滅亡呢?我們如何能夠知道時候,如基督命我們要在這時代裏留心注意 我們所處的時日?我們必需有聖靈的幫助。我們必須行在光裏,讓神的聖靈引領我們,教導我們。這也就是說要讀 聖經(必 要的), 並且要能理解這些事情。


要得智慧,要得聰明,不可忘記,也不可偏離我口中的言語。不可離棄智慧,智慧就 護衛你;要愛她,她就保守你。

(箴言45-6)


你如何在往後的磨難中得保守,得維護?很簡單,要得 到智慧和理解。神會給你光,如果你真正想要的話。


我藉著你的訓詞得以明白,所以我恨一切的假道。你的話是我腳前的燈,是我路上的 光。

(詩篇119104-105)


當我想到那十個童女和她們的燈的比喻時,我就想到了這個經節。但是你必須得想要 並且願意去爭取,努力的進入這狹窄的門,因為很多人僅僅是想要進入,卻終不能夠(路加福音1324)。所以如果我們想要進入,就必須努力,全心全力的努 力。這個西方世界裏冒充基督教的低劣信仰必須徹底的拋開。這個讓千千萬萬個基督徒毀滅的假福音必須要丟棄, 以致我們能夠知道時候,做神要我們做的,這樣我們才能進入永生之門。這個不要求服從,不須要警覺,不要求正 義,不必悔改的安逸輕鬆的信仰,是魔鬼差送的假冒的福音,為了要欺騙那些想要尋求真理的人,讓他們以為他們 已經找到了。一個能鑒別假教義或假教會的關鍵就是被遺漏了的基督的誡命,這是先決條件。


耶穌對信他的猶太人說:〝你們若常常遵守我的道,就真是我的門徒。你們必曉得真 理,真理必叫你們得以自由。〞

(約翰福音831-32)


一個人必須持續遵行神的道。背道和變節的可能性是很高的。但是今天的基督教並不 教導這些。很多教會教導人們〝一旦得救永遠得救〞的假道義。而在整個聖經裏都是對背道和變節的嚴厲警告(詩篇1013節,路加福音813節,彼得後書220節、317節,提摩太前書41節,希伯來書66節、1026節,馬太福音2410-12節,約翰一書219),甚至教導我們基督徒要遠離那些背離的人。在這裏我 要說的是,我們在最終的審判日站在人子之前有一個,實際上有兩個重要的條件我們必須要先做到。我們必須要警 覺,必須要服從神的誡命。我們必須停止敷衍玩笑,認真的埋頭苦幹。你想要知道我們的時候嗎?那你必須持續的 讀神的話,仔細研讀並且要警醒,因為這個世代正慢慢的進入尾聲。


我們弟兄們不可以活在黑暗中,以免神所說的事讓我們 措手不及...


弟兄們,論到時候、日期,不用寫信給你們,因為你們自己明明曉得,主的日子來 到,好像夜間的賊一樣。人正說平安穩妥的時候,災禍忽然臨到他們,如同產難臨到懷胎的婦人一樣;他們絕不能 逃脫。


弟兄們,你們卻不在黑暗裏,叫那日子臨到你們像賊一樣。你們都是光明之子,都是 白晝之子;我們不是屬黑夜的,也不是屬幽暗的。所以,我們不要睡覺,像別人一樣,總要警醒謹守。

(帖撒羅尼迦前書51-6)


為什麼保羅稱這些人為弟兄呢?因為他們持續的行在神的話裏。所以保羅告訴他們, 他們不是活在黑暗裏,不像那些失落無知的人一般。他們知道時候和日期。我們行在光裏的人能夠知道時候和日 期。那些行在黑暗中的人卻不能夠。這就是我為了一位讀者寫這篇文章的原因,她為了她的朋友們的無知而感到煩 腦沮喪。我知道這種感覺。這裏問題有很多;不成熟,不願意,自私的恐懼,道德上的怯懦,懶惰,愚昧等等。但 是他們過早的在某個時刻已經決定真理不適合他們。群眾的安逸和一致認同的謊言才是他們真正想要的。我們面對 的是一個靈裏的問題,一個很深的屬靈問題。但是先知但以理難道不曾給我們末世的警告嗎?對於末世事件的了 解,我們特意的提及這些話。


他說:〝但以理啊,你只管去,因為這話已經隱藏封閉,直到末時。必有許多人使自 己清靜潔白,且被熬煉,但惡人仍必行惡,一切惡人都不明白,惟獨智慧人能明白。

(但以理書129-10)


正是如此,他們將永不明白。只要他們停留在不知悔改的狀況裏,做那些神所厭惡的 事,他們永遠不會明白。因此我們不能在他們身上浪費太多時間,他們不想看見,不想改變,只想做電視機叫他們 去做的事。他們會回應寶馬汽車的廣告而渴望有一輛。他們會被一個漢堡包的廣告影響而飢渴難遏的去買一個吃。 只要是酷的,性感的,能帶來快感的,他們都會去做。很遺憾的我們走在生命之道上的人都得接受這個事實,你會 發現有這種精神上和情緒上的狀態的人實在太多了,尤其是美國人。他們的一生大致上是以電視機拋給他們的,由 企業機構制造出的期望(極 其複雜精妙的行銷)作 為基礎。他們吃喝嫁娶,作著〝美國夢〞,就像聖經上所說人在末世裏會做的事一樣。他們不知,不覺。


所以,請聽我這個守望者的話,不要再說神會騙人,要 相信他所說的。我知道你們大多數人會永遠相信神的話。然而不要以為那些關於地獄或永恆刑罰之類的事,神只是 刻意唬人,誇大其詞。也不要以為神的再來並摧毀地球上的罪惡只是玩笑之說。神是不開玩笑的。他是個信守承諾 的神。在你們還活著的時候,留心聽他和他的僕人的話。要明智,不要像下面所描述的愚笨的人一樣。


在下一段裏,〝愚昧人〞也是傻的,愚蠢的,易受騙的 意思。想著一個傻子,並非生理上的傻(先 天的弱智), 而是情願當一個傻子。你想要知道在美國現代的宣傳手法(惡魔的詭詐,讀者們要了解這一點)會帶給你什麼後果嗎?它會把你變成一個容易上當的傻 子。一個非常容易激動,無判斷思考能力,道德低落的傻子,隨時準備相信任何從平板電視裏出來的謊言。花些時 間讀聖經,取得智慧,獲得知識,這樣你就能辨識我們生活的險惡世代。


智慧在街市上呼喊,在寬闊處發聲,在熱鬧街頭喊叫,在城門口、在城中發出言語, 說:〝你們愚昧人喜愛愚昧,褻慢人喜歡褻慢,愚頑人恨惡知識,要到幾時呢?你們當因我的責備回轉,我要將我 的靈澆灌你們,將我的話指示你們。我呼喚,你們不肯聽從;我伸手,無人理會。反輕棄我一切的勸戒,不肯受我 的責備。你們遭災難,我就發笑;驚恐臨到你們,我必嗤笑。驚恐臨到你們,好像狂風;災難來到,如同暴風,急 難痛苦臨到你們身上。那時,你們必呼求我,我卻不答應;懇切地尋找我,卻尋不見。因為你們恨惡知識,不喜愛 敬畏耶和華,不聽我的勸戒,藐視我一切的責備,所以必吃自結的果子,充滿自設的計謀。〞〝愚昧人背道,必殺 己身;愚頑人安逸,必害己命。惟有聽從我的,必安然居住,得享安靜,不怕災禍。〞

(箴言120-33)

In These Times
Brothers, These are indeed trying times. I know... I have to read all of the bad news and see a hundred stories before I post a couple. Things are bad for many, especially our brethren in Christ. But I want to offer all of my readers hear a kind word of exhortation, that all you keep your lamps burning - so that you have light to see in these ever darkening day. You need light to see and your eyes open. I know those of you who come here and are insiders are doing all you can to do just that. My only word to each of you is to not let the times and the evils we see drain your spirit, make you angry, bitter or to  start to lash out at things we do not fully understand.

It is easily to get mad at the President, or Boehner or Putin or our Congressman, but we do not have all the facts. We do not know some of the things going on behind the scenes that are hidden from us. A bank that is ready to crash, a terrorist plot that is just barely foiled or a terrorist attack that succeeds but is hidden from the people and is reported as an 'accident'. We just do not have enough information to be too hard... so hard on leaders that we begin to hate them. We must also not be misled by others whose sole job seems to be to spread panic and fear.

Let us rest in our God who knows the end from the beginning and who understands all. We as Christians in our times must have our priorities right. We must have our minds and hearts set on the Kingdom of Heaven. This requires a complete and total redirection of our energies and personal priorities. But in it all, we must have faith, joy, love and not catch the spirit of Pharisee-ism that is all too common in the attitude of others.

As I look around the word everyday, I give thanks that I can still do the work God has called me to do. That I have my health, have a home to live in, food to eat. Yes, I give thanks to God for those things... things too many of us take for granted. When we have these things brothers and see the things that are happening to our world, we must learn to be content with our portion in this life. That is one of the secrets to a joyful life. Contentment - to keep ones personal priorities out of the daily rat race, the constant search for more wealth, a better job, a better spouse, a sexier this or a a tighter that. These are the distractions that ultimately claim men's souls.

Brothers I know this is one theme many don't like me to talk about but I am going to bring it up again. Cease to be overly concerned with your worldly status, your income, your job or the fact that you don't have this or cannot afford that. Why do I say this? Because these are the hooks of Mammon. The time has arrived for us to decide if we serve Christ or Mammon; God or the devil, truth or illusion. Because Christ told us in no uncertain terms that you cannot serve God and mammon.

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
(Luk 16:13-14)

What God is making plain here is that you cannot serve both. There is no way. So you have to choose. You MUST choose. This is not at all unlike the Choice Joshua made many centuries ago.

Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
(Jos 24:14-15)

The question of service - Whom do you serve? What do you serve? Note the reaction of the Pharisee's to Christ's words, they derided and scoffed at him. But this is the reaction you would expect from those whose first love is Mammon. They were were not hearing it. Why? They were slaves (servants) of mammon. Now let us get this straight. What Christ is not saying is that we should not work or make a living, the NT is clear about those who are too lazy to and refuse to work. No, what Christ is talking about is a person who serves mammon and is seeking the rewards of mammon, the riches, status and worldly protection that such service brings to its slaves.

What Christ is laying out to us is a sense of priorities; what we do and do not do - what is the purpose of it? Is it to serve God or mammon? Are we working extra hours that should be spent in other Godly responsibilities in order to get more money a better position, a nicer  this or a better that? What are your REAL priorities. I have found that the way people deal with money is the best and truest reveler of their character. Give someone some money and you will see just what kind of person you are dealing with, a thrifty, wise and giving person or a selfiish, greedy, person who within a few months will have nothing left of it. It shows you a level of personal and spiritual maturity. Do you see someone who is no good with money? Chances are almost certain that it is not really the money that is the issue but deep character flaws, usually in the self-control and personal integrity category. In short, you can tell a real Christian from a false one by the way he spends his time and money. Does he give to help his Church, the persecuted the poor, or is he dropping nearly $300 a month on cable and another $200 a month on golf and only has excuses and even gets angry when it comes time to give to ministry? Do you see what I mean? Money reveals all. This site is not going to die because of these kinds of believers who have the 'mammon and pleasure first' mentality.

The cares of this life are a distraction, if you believe Christ - here is what he said about the ones who fall away from the faith.

And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
(Mar 4:18-19)


What happens to the unfruitful trees? After a period of time, if they do not bear fruit, it gets cut down (see Luke 13::7ff). This is why I exhort all of you to be content with such things as you have.

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
(Heb 13:5)

Thank God for them, be industrious in your work but let it be just what it should be, merely away to support yourself and your family. Your primary focus must be Christ. Once you have been truly born again, you will never really want to go back to the rat race. I know that is what I did when I returned to The Lord I had to get out of the military, the global war and death machine that I saw as targeting only dark-skinned poor people and always had an excuse to war and at the time I was serving was seriously contemplating putting people in the military in UN uniform I had to get out of system I saw clearly as being increasingly anti-Christ in nature. I knew I had to leave and it was surely time to go. Many lost souls do not and can never understand that and you know what? I am not asking them to. I do not and will not answer to them, I answer to Christ. I kind of feel like Mr. Best who said this in his personal testimony.

By this time in my walk before the Lord, I had taken a job on the East Coast with a major corporation as AVIATION MANAGER and CHIEF PILOT. One day as we were putting the aircraft to bed in the hanger, I went back to check the baggage compartment to make sure all of the executives had their luggage off. As I was returning up the isle of the cabin, I stopped dead in my tracks. I HAD TO LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND, I HAD TO GO, AND GO NOW, and I COULD NOT LOOK BACK AT ALL. I HAD TO LEAVE, AND LEAVE AT ONCE, AND SEARCH OUT THE TRUTH OF IT ALL. I quit that very day, and I never LOOKED BACKED. I had no job to go to, but my wife and I had bought a cornfield and small wood lot to build on in the future.

We found a small trailer, hauled it onto the land, put in a well and septic system and moved to Wisconsin. The move was made in the fall. The Lord had all of this preplanned; though I was not aware of that fact at that point in time. The purchase of the land in Wisconsin was under unheard of conditions, allowing us great flexibility and low, low payments and interest. The LORD KNEW we would need it to survive. I did not know it at the time, but I had obeyed the LORD’S COMMANDS REGARDING TURNING OUR BACK UPON MAMMON in order to SEARCH OUT THE LORD. I was obeying TWO AREAS that are totally LOST UPON THE MODERN CHURCH, and DENIED BY THE MODERN CHURCH - Personal Testimony Of  Stewart Best

This is exactly what I was seeing and feeling back them. I left the AF and did not know where I would wind up, but eventually got a great Job at one of the world's top accounting firms making decent if not great money. I found a home though I deeply resisted buying it. But the Lord was clear.... "buy a house". So I did, I got a loan with no money down with a great rate and that is where I live today, Praise the Lord! If you obey God I am here to testify that God will work things out for you. That is why I tell each of you now. If you put Christ first really and truly first in ALL things, family, work, finances, free time, etc and live for the Gospel, he will look out for you in ways you could never imagine!

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
(Mat 6:31-34)

Was it hard for me to leave the AF without a job? Yes. Did I know I had to do it? Yes. Did things work out far better for me than if I stayed in... even from a worldly perspective? Almost certainly. If I remained in Germany, which is where I wanted to stay, I would have been in rebellion, such a rebellion taking place right after I just finally re-connecting with Christ and my long lost faith. I was not about to do that. Furthermore, I knew it was a test. I passed. How do I know? I obeyed the voice of the Lord. But I will let you in on a little secret. I probably should never have re-upped the last time I did in the AF. I knew it was a mistake but I did it anyway out of greed and fear of the future but at the time of my re-enlistment, I was not walking with God.

The lesson here is that faith is more than a notion! It sometimes requires sacrifice (ask Abraham!) and heading into strange places without any visible means of support  just because the Lord has ordained it. If you want the rewards of faith, you must be willing to walk the walk of faith.

I did not say talk the talk of faith.

In closing, the times of men like me watching on the internet may not be here for much longer. Many Christians take us for granted. That could change soon. There are powerful forces around who are doing what they can to kill the message and the primary target is American Christians. They mean business. I mean six feet under kind of business.  That is all I feel lead to say right now. That is why I always ask for your prayers and protection. I am on more than a few people's radars who want to do away with this work... permanently.


Thus, this watchman has been careful of late, going private and picking and choosing those whom I will minister to, leaving those with an inverted sense of priorities to work those priorities out... outside of this site. Because if a person feels I should make all of my work free so that I can sustain their HBO and NFL habits, I don't want them hanging around here. Let them decide that giving to help the poor, the persecuted, missionaries and God's watchmen and prophets is where they should be spending their money. Not funding the digitization of Sodom. I know how hard it is to make the break. I did it sometime ago but never regretted it. I thought I would but I don't. I can still watch TV with Roku and not have give a sizable portion of my very meager income to Hollywood. There are ways to avoid the devils imps and redirect your income. Please I am not talking about ANYONE reading this now who are insiders, but to outsiders to whom this particular piece in some form will soon be available.

Keep me in your prayers and I ask that you keep one of my readers whom I will refer to as Gary in prayer. He is looking for a job outside of the DC maze and is being considered for a job down south. Please pray for 'Gary' (not his real name).

God bless all of you who love our Lord, Jesus Christ

Brother Mark
