-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

 - 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.

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.

Watson's Economic Crisis Report: Too Big To Fail
This is the latest in my economic crisis series. This report is secular and no spiritual teachings are in it. It is 56 pages and talks about a number of issues from Student Loan debt to new Money Market Regulations to the moves among the BRICS nations to, yes, TBTF.

The price is $50 to outsiders (and free to insiders) and a simple email (outsiders at markswatson dot com) must be sent to request a copy, then I will send you a link for payment. Once payment is received, the pdf file will be sent to you. Please check your spam folder if you don't hear from me after a couple of days.

Many of you wonder why I do it this way, I will explain briefly. It is not easy to run a site like this. I have some very powerful people who hate, HATE what I do here. They want to see me under six feet of dirt. Were it not for the Lord's hand of protection and a few friends in interesting places, that would have happened long ago. There are many ways they can cause me trouble and one way is start seeing to it that money starts hitting my account from strange and unusual sources, a red flag gets waved somewhere in the bowels of the DHS and suddenly through no fault of my own, I have a load of troubles. So I do an initial screening first, it may not do much good, but before I accept money from someone I don't know, I want to know just a little about them. In short, I got enough troubles, I am not going to invite anymore. The site takes money to run but some money, I wouldn't touch with a sanitized, decontaminated, 100 foot pole while standing in a full bio-protection suit!


If you want a copy, send me an email outsiders at markswatson dot com .
 

Insect Repellent

I have seen some of those films with all of those locusts and the farmers are helpless as they eat up all of the crops and when they have eaten them down to the bone, the locusts fly away and look for another field to gobble up. I have taken a lesson from the modern farmer. Lay down some insect repellent from time to time. Put down something that makes the Locusts go away and repels them.

After 15 years of hard work - that is the conclusion I had to come to before I got burned out from this most difficult work. I had to get rid of the people who were a constant nuisance and bother, those who ranted and raved against me, calling me names while claiming to be Christian. These days, brothers, I just don't believe it when someone tells me they are a Christian. It's kind of like a very dark Black man telling me he is a full blooded Swede. I take such statements with a high degree of skepticism.

I come from the spiritual state of Missouuri the 'Show Me' State. My experience has taught me that if an American says it, hold their words in deep suspicion and the word Christian when added to the word American? It is meaningless in these times. They may really mean what they say... for about 10 minutes. Then they change up on you, or lie and say they did not say what they said. I think of that song sung a few years ago when one lover says to another 'I love you forever tonight'. They say whatever they want to say to get what they want. That is the level of American consistency, Christian or no.


Some have been taken aback these past few months that I have not slaved away for them for free. The simple fact is, I got a command from the Lord many months ago that for awhile I refused to obey. To cast no more of my pearls before the swine. Well, to change the analogy a bit I refuse to leave my crops for the locusts. That great gaggle of so-called believers who swarm over sites without supporting them, spread their ignorance, hate and conspiracy theories and then flock to devour up another workman, like some plague of insects that darkens the very sky when they are in full swarm.

I will regularly put down some repellent to keep them away. Many I know want me to 'come back' and go broke so they can keep on dropping down $150-300 a month (Cable bills)  to fund those elements in society who are attacking the Church with that money. They want HBO - they don't want to help Ministers with their tithes and offerings. Better the soft porn of HBO than the Gospel of Christ, they speak loudly and clearly with the increase God has given them. So from time to time I make a point of letting people know that if that is where they are at spiritually, Please, do us both a favor and go away. I do not want you here and you (that's right, go and look in that mirror!) are the reason I have taken this site private. People like that are a cancer in the body of Christ. I often think of the passage of scripture that goes like this.

And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
(Amo 8:10-13)

Dangerous times are coming for American Christians. The times are coming when you will really wish to hear the whole counsel of God and will not hear it. You will seek far and wide for a watchman and prophet to expound the word of God on our times, and will not find it. You will fast and pray and become afraid and yet, you will not be able to find it. I know many of you hate when I talk like this, well let me make this plain, while I certainly do not call myself a prophet, those Old Testament guys weren't cutting people any slack when the people weren't doing what they were supposed to and I am not cutting anyone here any slack either. There is too much evil going on for anyone who claims to be saved to not size up their priorities in these dangerous times. You think I am rough? Wait till you stand before the Lord and give account for all the money and time you wasted.

Do you know what I feel like? Ezekiel who was told to go and preach to a valley full of dry bones. Only in Ezekiel's vision, those bones came together and life was put into them. The Lord was showing Ezekiel something very important in that vision for the House of Israel, Judah, Ephraim and Joseph (it was not directed at the Church or the Church age). But in the NT there is no such promise of resurrection for un-repentant and spiritually dead dry bones after their rejection of the words, commandments and lordship of Christ. What did Christ, our Lord say about the Church that everyone said was 'alive' and was dead.

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
(Rev 3:1-4)


Sardis had a great reputation with everyone but the Lord Jesus Christ. The threat the Lord gives them is a hard one, for the whole notion of Christ coming upon them like a thief and them not watching and not repenting is clear evidence of a soul is in darkness and that will be lost (I have posted many a word on this).

Frankly, I am exasperated dealing with this brand of American Christian. I am  tired of preaching to graveyards and mausoleums; to corpses and urns and was given permission by the Lord to stop doing so. So in the near future if you see a sudden change in languages here on the public site, I have decided to shift my emphasis from the dead to those who are doing their best to fight the good fight of faith and to minister to a few saved souls remaining in modern Sardis/Laodicea and to let the dead bury their own dead. I can remember Ken Peters saying the very same kind of thing in his vision on the Tribulation, he was tired of preaching to these dead American 'Christians' . I am too and I am done. You preach and the bones just get a little older and a little drier.  My emphasis is now for those for whom there is still life and hope, here in the US and abroad. But I know there are a still a few truly blood bought and tried believers who have set their face towards Christ and will never compromise or turn back who live here in the US. I am deeply humbled that I have some of them as insiders here.


Many have and will rail at me talking about money. How dare you 'charge' for God's word! Well I do not charge for it. Access to my site is based on donations, yes  - people give what they can and when they can. If you are serious about this work here, I am serious about continuing it... for you. I have insiders who have no money and no jobs. I do not charge them. They can get in and read it all and NOT be harassed or embarrassed about their financial status. I will never, ever do that. Those in nations that cannot give because of the differences in financial infrastructure (some nations do not do Paypal or Visa) they too can get in. So it is not all about money, despite the accusations that satan puts in people's hearts. No, its about you - your commitment to help not just me, but the persecuted, the poor, missionaries, and others who aid and build up the Body of Christ. This idea of a Christian who only gives to the devil and then shrieks like a demon possessed man when it comes time to give to ministry... What in the world would make you think I would want someone like that around here and call them a brother in Christ. I don't and won't.

Do you know what time it is? Do you not see what is happening to Christians all over the world? The attacks that have been waged on us here in the US? The Churches demolished in China, Iraq and Syria? Do you not see the massacres of Christians in Africa? Where do you think you are? When are you going to get a clue? If not now, when? Or have you caught a terminal case of "American sleeping sickness or "Spiritus Rigamortum"?


Somehow, during the difficult times, I think I will still be here and yes online though the scope and method of delivery may change with the times. But from here on out I have no time for those who are playing Church and not doing their part. I will continue to work in the field that the Lord has told me to work no matter how big or small, feed those whom God wants be to feed and do all I can to keep the locusts, insects, blight, and other crop diseases far away from this field. It won't be easy and it is going to be a learning process for me, but...

...No more pearls before swine no more fresh crops for the locusts and this is exactly what messages like this one are designed to be, Insect repellent. For those of you who are new here, this message is not directed at you. Just the thousands of people who came by here regularly and never helped out and never even offered so much as a word of encouragement, just negativity. Dealing with people who are constantly speaking evil of me and this work, offering their unrequested opinions and accusations... It gets real old and it was just too draining on me. I am not going back to that again. More importantly, I am not going to burn out, dealing with American troublemakers, ingrates and accusers who defame the name of Christ by using his name do describe themselves.... But there is a private site that I work on 7 days a week. So if you want in, don´t be shy ask. But I warn you, I am highly selective for entry and there are some basic rules that must be adhered to in order to remain.

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 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



This is now a  Private Site!!
Many of you will write me and give me a long self-serving diatribe about how all my work should be free. Don't waste your time or mine sending it to me, if you want to read a form letter of what I will send you, here it is.

There are thousands of pages of info that are here for free that you can read. I ask for nothing in return. But going forward, you want to read future material.... well, I have done my part for nearly 15 years, I have resisted this move for a long, long time, now it is your turn to do yours. If you can't do that, I wish you all the best. It is a big internet, enjoy it!

For those of you who have asked and wondered what happened here why no more updates, It is real simple. The old Watson's Web went out of business. It's gone. It died because I could not get enough support. If you came by here regularly and never gave and never helped, You killed it. Don't blame me and don't blame God.

You did it.

We are at war, Christians are being slaughtered the world over and US Christians are slumbering in Sodom, giving a lions portion of their wealth to the devil and his imps (more here) and  refuse to help ministers do their God appointed work.

Now I will focus on a smaller group of people who do their part. For them, I will continue to do my part.

FYI: Outsiders can no longer donate to this site. If you are looking for a donate button, It's no longer there. Giving is a privilege and if you don't think it isn't, ask someone who just lost everything... job, house, home and family and is forced to be on the receiving end of someone else's charity. The idea of a stingy, selfish Christian who can never help out and give is one that is not of scripture. Rather, it is out of the pit of hell.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
(Luk 6:38)

I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
(Act 20:35)

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
(2Co 9:7)

Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
(Eph 4:28)


I say again... giving is a privilege and if HBO, your golf game or your new Audi are more important than  giving to help Christian ministries. I don't want your money nor your presence at this site. Go and pester and harass someone who has the time and inclination to deal with you and tickle your ears with a  message that puts no responsibility on you as a Christian.
I am not that person and this site is not for you if that is what you are looking for.
When you get your priorities right and figure out what time it is, we can talk then.
