Food For Thought

#899: One undeniable truth is that most folks (including the then 'experts') completely failed to recognize the first coming of the LORD Jesus Christ even though miracles were a plenty and they were armed with scriptures galore. Lately I've been wondering if there's a chance that history could repeat itself for His Second Coming. There are multiple warnings about deception in the last days both from the LORD and His disciples and many Christians appear to have mapped out all the scenarios - depending on their view of the timing of the rapture and other key events.

But what if Daniel's seventieth week has already happened? And what if the New Covenant began when Jesus was baptized by John? And what if the abomination of desolation was the Son of God being crucified at Golgotha/Calvary? What if the first half of those seven years were His earthly ministry and the second 1,260 days was the initial outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the early Church after Pentecost? What if there is no third temple as we currently understand it? What if antichrist is a spirit or spirits and not a specific person or personality? What if ...

The answer is that it would completely change ones view of the end times. It would mean a complete re-examining of everything that this writer has been taught and come to accept for over 35 years. What if the last days scenario is not what folks are expecting just as it was 2,000 years ago upon Jesus' first advent? The Bible tells us to test all things, prove all things, compare scripture with scripture and to be Bereans. In these dark days, I am suggesting that we never cease from doing those very things even if it challenges our long held preconceptions. Just in case things do not turn out exactly the way that we think or even believe they might. Food for thought indeed ...

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:16-17)

At this pivotal time, it is essential that True Christians and others CHECK WHAT IS BEING REPORTED FOR THEMSELVES and follow the example of the Bereans. Are you?

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jeremiah 29:11)

Real Bereans (Acts 17:11) are truly needed, watchmen must WARN, evangelists must COMPEL, do not be DECEIVED and WATCH that PERIPHERY!

Could a Quantum Financial Reset be the Mark of the Beast?

#898: Sometimes you need to look at the Word of God with a fresh pair of glasses. It is quite possible to listen to Bible commentators and 'experts' and rely on them more than it is to listen to what the Spirit is still saying to the churches and by extension His people.

We are starting to hear a lot about the cabal and their 'Great Reset' as well as a group of people known as The Alliance and the much touted NESARA/GESARA quantum block chain financial currency reset. Some see it as a battle between dark and light, some as a struggle between good and evil with some Believers seeing it as a battle between bad and evil. In other words, either outcome will see a worldwide digital currency reset where of course, ultimately, cash will be consigned to the past and nobody will be able to buy or sell outside of the new financial system.

Revelation 13:16-17 tells us: "He (the second Beast from the Earth) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

What I am suggesting is that any True Believer should not sign up to any forthcoming quantum digital block chain currency reset whether it involves that of the current cabal (World Economic Forum, UN, mRNA vaccines, health passports etc) or The Alliance (Q, Donald Trump, NESARA, GESARA etc). This is, of course, something that should be prayerfully considered. Friends, the LORD Jesus Christ is literally returning soon "like a thief in the night" but not in any pre-tribulation rapture. Time is indeed short and we should redeem the time in getting the True Gospel out to our friends, our families, our neighbours and our enemies alike.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:16-17)

Hidden In Plain Sight

#897: The satanists and occultists in the cabal who run this world love to literally push their vile works in your face and they do it brazenly. Whether it's the 6 feet that you have to unsocially distance or the rule of 6 in your household or the announcement of the first UK lockdown during the Spring equinox or the government announcement of the second UK lockdown on the dark night of Halloween (amazingly on a Saturday), everything has significance in their warped minds. Believers live in a time like no other.

So when you understand what the World Economic Forum are planning with their alleged 'Great Reset' in association with certain notorious billionaires, blood line families and the accursed United Nations for the world in the run up to 2030, you should be in the Word, seeking the LORD and searching earnestly for a correct understanding of eschatology (last days, end time theology).

"He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Revelation 13:16-18)

Look the the above banner taken from WEF website. You can see that the letter 'O' on all three words is in red and linked by a crescent. You can also see that the number '666' is depicted or hidden in plain sight. Can you not see that the CONvid-19 plandemic is but a step in the demonic scheme to eventually crash the world economy and force a one world communistic government on us, as the Bible foretells? It is therefore incumbent on this writer to share this well known and most important scripture with you as it will be the only way out of what is coming:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
(John 3:16-17)

Fret Not Thyself

 #896: We are surrounded by deception. A fake virus, fake tests, fake germ theory, fake evolutionary theory, a fake globe and now even fake election counts. One thing that the LORD Jesus Christ warned His disciples about was about the level of deception in the latter days. It is easy to become swallowed up in fear and worry but this need not be so for those with faith in God. Three scriptures popped up in my mind this morning as I stirred from sleep. One is above and two are below. For those reading these words today they will mean confirmation and reassurance ...

"Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity." (Psalm 37:1)

"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" (Matthew 6:24-25)

At this pivotal time, it is essential that True Christians and others CHECK WHAT IS BEING REPORTED FOR THEMSELVES and follow the example of the Bereans. Are you?

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jeremiah 29:11)

The Mark Has Been Here for Decades?

#895: Hello again folks! Did you know that the much fated Mark of the Beast has been around in one form for the last 35 years? And it's been hidden in plain sight on everything you've bought over the last few decades hidden in the bar codes that we've all become accustomed to. Look at the above photo and note the three slightly longer double line markers at the beginning, middle and end. They represent, wait for it, the number 6 (six). In other words, every bar code on almost every item from a tin of beans to your fave CD to your washing machine includes the infamous number 666.

Your concern should not however be restricted to that revelation but what you should be looking at here in Yours Truly 2020 is the fast approaching day when that bar code or mark is not on your box of cornflakes but on you. Your right hand or forehead to be precise. The current plandemic based around the fake CONvid-19 non-virus is a vital step in the craftily concocted, insidious plan to bring in what is being called the Great Reset or, as I call it, the New Normal World Order. A big component of that plan is to vaccine the world population with a vaccine that not only includes nanotechnology to track you but also DNA altering RNA sequences that will make you less than human (and, quite frighteningly, beyond the True Salvation of the LORD Jesus Christ).

The method of implementation for this mark will be a patch on your body that will deliver the poisonous vaccine(s). But get this ... the mark or patch will use a bioluminescent substance called LUCIFERASE (that's a big clue) which will be readable by any remote device, not only for ID but also financial transactions. Note also that a patent for this is called "Cryptocurrency system using body activity data" and its number is ... WO/2020/060606. So you have a 666 universal product identifying bar code and effectively a 666 patent for a substance given (in part) one of the names of Satan and to be used in the delivery of nefarious vaccines.

Put them all together and soon those folks without said vaccine certificates or health passports will not be able to buy or sell. That system is nearly here and will be on you soon if your are not alert to it. Which brings me to an earnest appeal. If you are a Christian who still believes in the pre-tribulation rapture deception, I urge you to seek the Lord openly and honestly about this information. Be a Berean! Challenge yourself, your Pastor and your church if necessary! This is vital news for Christians and the lost alike. Armed with the Word, the Holy Spirit and His Wisdom, I believe we have an excellent opportunity to reach many treasured souls with the True Gospel while our fading freedoms recede into the past.

"He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Revelation 13:16-18)

A Warning to Those Who Call Themselves Christians

#894: Hello again folks! I felt led to write these few words to you this morning. No right thinking so-called born again Christian should even consider accepting and/or taking the forthcoming CONvid-19 vaccine because it is a Trojan Horse to bring in what the Book of Revelation calls the Mark of the Beast (system), particularly in chapter thirteen.

The vaccine includes the usual poisons to allegedly excite your immune system in action (which actually do the opposite and indeed poison you) and it will be a RNA vaccine with the ability to rewrite strands of your DNA making anyone receiving it a chimera, a hybrid or in plain words less than human. Being as it is patented, it means big pharma and/or your government could also own you. Perhaps even more disturbing is the fact that this dodgy vaccine will also incorporate nanotechnology that will likely lead to people becoming fused to artificial intelligence (AI) with no privacy, no free will and ultimately no way essentially function (buy and sell) in society.

With that in mind, may this writer urge you to read again with enlightened glasses these inspired words, seek the LORD Jesus Christ and pray about what to do in the days yet ahead ...

"He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Revelation 13:16-18)

In For The Kill

 #893: Hello again folks! If you've followed and read this blog down the years you'll doubtless be aware that I'm a huge fan of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and their particular genre of music, as my other site elobeatlesforever (elobf) will attest. There have been regular crossover between my faith in the LORD Jesus Christ and my musical preferences, in particular with former ELO member, Pastor and accomplished singer/songwriter Dave Scott-Morgan. You can therefore imagine my surprise when the expanded edition of the album "Balance Of Power" came out in 2007, just a year before this blog began, having been originally released in 1986.

Apart from a totally new version of a song entitled "Heaven Only Knows" that included part of The Lord's Prayer, the CD included a previously unreleased track "In For The Kill" (see lyrics and video below). As I've often said and written, not all conspiracies are theories so you can imagine my surprise at what was new territory for Jeff Lynne's lyrics mentioning deals in dark rooms and sharing out land, something the Bible foretells in the present last days. The Books of Daniel and Revelation come to mind as does Joel 3:2. This is a bit of a departure from my usual posts but please consider having a read and/or listen if you are so minded ...

Listen to the money talk, listen to it scream,
Only lots of paper but it haunts them in their dreams,
Doesn't matter who they are, doesn't matter where,
Some people can't get enough that is their only care,
Going in for the kill, in for the kill,
In for the kill, in for the slaughter,
In for the thrill of the power game,
In for the kill, in for the finish,
They've got to win it's the only way,
Sitting in a darkened room,
Sharing out the land,
Someone holds a document and smiles as they shake hands,
Everywhere you wander, wander where you will,
Someone's making deals and going in for the kill.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

CONvid-19: Summing It Up

#892: Hello again folks! The LORD Jesus Christ warned His disciples more about deception in these Last Days than anything else during the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21).

It was announced recently by the mainstream media (correctly labelled fake news by US President Donald Trump) that the alleged worldwide death toll for CONvid-19 had reached one million despite the fact that the PCR test is producing high amounts of false positive results, official figures include deaths from comorbidities and other non-related causes of death (including, believe it not, suicides and car accidents) and that it is not possible to transmit viruses (exosomes) unless they are injected into other persons in vaccines.

Some simple mathematics reveal the over hyped official figures when you divide 1 million by the current world population of around 7 billion and discover that only 0.0143% of us (at most) have died as a result of the fake virus. With annual deaths from influenza at around 600,000 and many peoples death certificates quoting CONvid-19 as their cause of death as opposed to influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia or their actual illness(es), it's quite galling to consider that 99.98 in every 100 folks across the (flat) earth will not die as a result of something that is essentially no more dangerous than annual flu and certainly will never justify the worldwide lockdowns and state assaults against ordinary citizens unless something more more sinister is looming in the shadows at the behest of the New (Normal) World Order a.k.a. United Nations, mass eugenist Bill Gates and their faceless technocrats.

At this pivotal time, it is essential that True Christians and others CHECK WHAT IS BEING REPORTED FOR THEMSELVES and follow the example of the Bereans. Are you?

200,000 Views!

#891: Hello again folks! What started out over twelve (12) years ago as Heresy Watch (but is now, of course, entitled KJS Berean Beacon) on Thursday 8th May 2008 (you can read that first article here) today reached the milestone of 200,000 page views!

It's taken 890 articles over 4,527 days or almost 149 months to get there covering a multitude of subject matter. My hope and prayer is that this blog has helped someone somewhere find the LORD Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and that my writings and/or musings have blessed True Christians in some small way during that time. In other words that it has born good fruit.

Study Seed: First Estate

#890: Hello again folks! Today I would like to plant what I call a study seed. Here it is: Have you ever read your Bible and noticed a certain common denominator when it comes to those who fell from their original positions? Have a think about these seven (7) persons/entities who literally left (or will leave) their first estate as Jude (v.6) termed it and keep an eye out for a forthcoming article ...

Satan (Lucifer)

The Nephilim (Genesis 6)

Adam (Eden)

Esau (birthright)

Saul (anointed)

Judas Iscariot (disciple)

'Christians' who will accept the Mark of the Beast

Days of Noah versus Days of Lot

#889: Hello again folks! Whilst recently reading the Olivet Discourse and the words of the LORD Jesus Christ regarding the signs of His Second Advent, I was struck by the differences betwixt the accounts of the days of Noah and the days of Lot. In both accounts we are told that the people were eating and drinking but this writer finds it most interesting that in the days of Noah marriage is mentioned but it is absent in the days of Lot (likely due to rampant sexual immorality and deviancy) whereas we are told that folks were buying, selling, planting and building (business as usual) in and around Sodom and Gomorrah.

There is much to consider regarding both scenarios when we look at the social and commercial landscape described in the Book of Revealing in terms of the Beast system and the abject violence and persecution against True believers when we also compare the attitudes of the people to the angels lodged with Lot and the worldwide reaction to the death of the two witnesses. This is a Bible study that you should conduct yourself. Nevertheless, expect a more detailed overview of the days of Noah and Lot in a forthcoming article ...

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." ~ Matthew 24:37-38

"And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." ~ Luke 17:26-30

Without Me You Can Do Nothing

#888: Hello again folks! When the LORD Jesus Christ spoke these words as recorded in the Gospel of John chapter fifteen (15) verse five (5), He meant it on very many levels ...

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

There is a good mathematical, logical reason why I say this for in this present world there are two spiritual families, the children of the devil (John 8:44) and the children of God (Romans 8:16). There is a stark reality in how God sees us, in the natural we are dead in our sins (John 8:24) yet if we are in the process of being saved and have accepted the LORD Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour (John 3:16). In terms of the eternal value of our lives and the things that we do, there is a simple equation to highlight the vast difference between the two aforementioned spiritual clans.

Imagine dividing the sum total of your life by zero or dividing it by one. In a purely binary way, the efforts of the natural man will always be divided by zero. Whether you have achieved one milestone or many, any number divided by zero will always be zero hence the efforts, however good or bad, of the unsaved in heavenly, eternal terms mean nothing without Christ. On the other hand, the redeemed man (or woman) can have confidence that, because they have been adopted of God thanx to the wonderful price paid by the LORD Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection, every action and act has value for in the family of God our efforts are divided by one. Whether one talent, two or five (or mored), our lives make an eternal difference as we become living sacrifices.

The Good News is that any repentant soul can trade families by accepting the LORD Jesus Christ as your Saviour and change from a zero to a one in an instant ...

Five Disciples and the First Miracle

#887: Hello again folks! Sometimes you can read the Bible and yet, after reading a certain passage very many times, you can still learn something new - just like I did just the other day. It was amazing for this writer to discover (maybe even rediscover!) in the first chapter of the John's gospel how the disciples of Jesus began their journey of discovery.

I simply didn't realize that the day after John the Baptist had testified of the LORD Jesus Christ, that one of the "two of his disciples" (John 1:35) "who heard him speak (and) followed him" (John 1:37) was Andrew who went to find his brother Simon (Peter) before Philip and Nathaniel were to join them. I believe that the other disciple of John the Baptist was John himself (John 19:35; John 21:24) so there may well have been a quintet of disciples with Jesus to witness His first miracle (John 2:11) during a certain wedding in Cana on "the third day" afterward (John 2:1). Perhaps this is why Jesus later declared: "Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother." (Matthew 12:49-50)

Why is this important? Because every disciple of Jesus starts somewhere to write their story and runs their race (Hebrews 12:1) thereafter when He calls them and/or they call on the name of the LORD. I'm reminded of Jesus' words in Matthew 22:14: "For many are called, but few are chosen". If nothing else, we should take time every day to thank God for Jesus and the Salvation that He is working in us.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

He Causes All

"He causes ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is six hundred six score and six (666)." ~ Revelation 13:16-18

#886: The Book of Revelation is intriguing to many. The ultimate in prophetic writings, inspired by the Holy Spirit and dictated to the Apostle John by the LORD Jesus Christ Himself, being a mixture of chronological events separated by parentheses and told in somewhat familiar imagery to those acquainted with the Book of Daniel and the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21). Most adherents to the pretribulation rapture theory think it largely included in the Bible for the Jewish people or what they term the tribulation saints. However, in truth, it - like the rest of the Word of God - is meant for ALL generations of Christians included the last one before the second parousia of the LORD Jesus Christ. The reader is warned that believers will be massively persecuted during the last seven years of the present age with many being beheaded for their faith and loyalty to their Lord, especially during the time of the fifth seal (Revelation 6:9-11).

With that in mind, when we read verse 16 of Revelation chapter thirteen (13) that the notorious, soon-to-be-revealed Antichrist will cause ALL (not some) to take the dreaded mark of the beast except, of course, those who love their Lord. There is a very good reason why the Book of Revelation is part of the canon of scripture and why there is a warning in chapter 22 (verses  18-19) to anyone who seeks to either add to or remove any part of it. The Book of Revelation is presented to guide and assist believers through that time of testing because they will be there for most of it! So when John writes "He causes all" he means what he says and says what he means. The Greek word for causes is ποιέω (poieō; Strongs #4160) which essentially means 'make' in this context with the idea of force or urging. The Greek word for all is πᾶς (pas; Strongs #3956) which can mean 'each', 'every', 'any', 'all' or 'everyone' in this context. This fully supports the remainder of verse 16 which states that "both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave" are included in this end time edict with no exceptions. The choice will be stark for the whole world but not for true believers, who will be present right up until the true timing of the rapture, at some point after the sixth seal.

Whatever the mark of the beast turns out to be (likely to be a wide ranging extension of the so-called health passport  combining all financial transactions with worship of the Antichrist), please make yourself ready for the tough times ahead and strengthen your walk with your Lord and your Heavenly Father because those days will soon become these days.

The Mark of the Beast Has Arrived

 #885: Hello again folks! Many (but not enough) Christians, if not many non-believers, will be familiar with what the Book of Revelation says about the Mark of the Beast ...

"He [the second beast who comes up out of the earth with two horns like a lamb who speaks like a dragon] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Rev. 13:16-18)

"Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his handhe himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." (Rev. 14:9-11)

You might ask why I've entitled this article: "The Mark of the Beast Has Arrived". This is no throwaway statement or prediction. As the threat of Bill Gates' sinister if not deadly new DNA/RNA altering vaccine nears and increases, details of the delivery method(s) continue to be unveiled. Modena (who have never before developed products intended for human usage) are reported to be developing a 'solution' that delivers the so-called vaccine in a microneedle patch that will be embedded in the skin and also leave an invisible marker only detectable by ultra-violet light. Whilst public objections to the vaccine need to be increasing in volume, there are a few further points that need to be amplified.

The Greek word for the English word "mark" found in the above scriptures is χάραγμα or charagma. According to Strong's Concordance (#5480) it means a stamp or an impress. Think about it! The Modena methodology for vaccine delivery is a microneedle patch or stamp or impress that will permanently mark the skin. But it will do much more than physically affect your body. The vaccine will also modify the RNA strands within your DNA meaning that anyone who receives it will become a genetically modified human. The patent for this evil potion is even numbered 60606. Have you woken up yet? 

The patch appears to be the preferred option for several governments. If that's not enough to get your attention then consider this: Despite the lockdown(s), mass house arrests and removal of your basic human rights right now, even the worst governments and most threatening laws will pale in comparison to when the Antichrist arises and fools most of the world (by false peace and his many lies) into giving him absolute control before he turns nasty and demands absolute worship and the taking up of the dreaded mark. My point is that the Modena vaccine may well be a key component of the impending Orwellian health passport which will allow or prevent folks from many events and activities depending on whether you have it, have been tested or have refused it.

It is therefore not much of an stretch to imagine a world dictator banning any financial transactions (buying and selling) if you are not only non-vaccinated but also invoking the death sentence if you refuse to submit to or worship him. The vaccines and the 5G digital framework being installed while you are cowering in your mask and in your home is the foundation if not the prototype and/or beginning of the Mark of the Beast. There are many implications of this truth to those who believe the pre-tribulation rapture myth for it is a distinct possibility that we are already in the Beginning or Sorrows element  of the Tribulation period, particularly when you consider the United Nations Agenda 2030 and several other postulated significant dates.

This is a time for watchmen to warn, for many to pray and for all to investigate for themselves (be Bereans). Time is short ... do not waste it whilst your freedoms are being gradually eroded.

Recommended: Escape From The Demonic To Christ And Freedom (Bob Mitchell)

#884: Hello again folks! Regular (and casual) readers of my writings will know that you will regularly be alerted to any new book offerings from my good friend Bob Mitchell. Earlier this year, he published "Escape From The Demonic To Christ And Freedom" (ISBN-13: 979-8666803820), which is a kind of remix of his excellent autobiographical testimony "Journey Into The Light" and well worth perusing. 

I read (and often reson ated with) this 94 page paperback in just a few hours (as I couldn't put it down as soon as I started reading the first few paragraphs). It's uplifting, interesting and ultimately triumphant as Bob recalls his spiritual journey and the many blessings that he has received from the LORD Jesus Christ through the years. And the good news is that you can order the book from amazon.co.uk for just £4.80 via this link thus: 


We also recommend that you also consider these other Bob Mitchell books too:

Escaping This Prison Darkness

#883: Hello again folks! One of the huge blessings of accepting biblical flat earth cosmology is that you often look at the scriptures as if looking through a new set of glasses. For the last few months I have taken the opportunity to have an early morning prayer walk wherein I (naturally) pray, meditate and consider the Word of God. These thoughts came to me earlier this week ...

"Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed." (Acts 16:22-26)

Many believers are familiar with the account of Paul's jailbreak from the Philippian prison in the above text and how it led to the salvation of the Philippian jailor and his family. Doubtless the earthquake and miraculous opening of all the doors was headed up by an angel of the LORD.

What struck me was that this account reminds me of the promise of the LORD Jesus Christ to return to earth one day soon and call home (harpazo; seize) His saints (the living and the dead) in what is commonly known as the rapture. Note that we see believers singing and praising God in the midst of adversity before their rescue. Dare we ask whether Christians will be doing the same whilst they are under similar heavy persecution and are being martyred during the fifth seal? Food for thought indeed ...

When these events take place "immediately after the tribulation of those days" (Matthew 24:29), the LORD Jesus Christ appear and be seen by all after cranking aside the firmament of His power and will facilitate the miraculous departure from the prison (the Beast system of antichrist's New World Order) after the large earthquake during the sixth seal (Revelation 6:12) in much the same way that He released Paul and Silas back in the first century.

It's almost as if it is a token or precursor of what is just around the corner, prophetically speaking. It seems to me that taking the Bible literally opens up so many more streams of wisdom and revelation than when Christians inject the so-called wisdom of man and his false science in place of the literal Truth. Such is the amazing result of believing biblical flat earth cosmology and perceiving the Word and the Last Days in a new, vibrant light.

Paradise or Prison, Heaven or Hell

#882: Hello again folks! There are various ways in which believers can convey the True Gospel regarding the two alternative eternal futures on offer to every man, woman and child who live and breathe today. Perhaps the next time the opportunity comes up, you could try this ...

You have two choices. Alternative #1 is that you can live in absolute luxury for a year, be waited on and enjoy every delicacy and delight before spending rest of your life in prison with no hope of parole or release. Alternative #2 is that you can spend a year in prison in the most dire of circumstances before spending the rest of your life in freedom and bliss.

In other words, you can either enjoy the pleasures of this world and then spend eternity eternally separated from God in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15) OR you can accept the LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour (John 14:6) be hated by all nations for His Names Sake (Luke 21:17) and endure a time of tribulation before spending eternity in perfect peace with God.

Believe it or not, this particular writer has seen and heard folks plump for alternative #1 on more than one occasion! This is the spiritual state of what is likely to be the last generation before the Millennium commences. It's galling and upsetting but challenging and a real opportunity to see the God perform His Word: "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" (Luke 18:27). We should seek therefore redouble our efforts to reach the lost with the True Gospel by the way we live our lives, our testimony and (if required) with our words.

Life Lessons: Proverbs 24:16

"For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity." ~ Proverbs 24:16

#881: I remember reading Hebrews 6:4-6 and the LORD Jesus Christ's words regarding blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31) when I was a young believer back in 1984 and becoming really concerned about losing my salvation and becoming a spiritual castaway. I also remember going to visit my then local vicar (the Reverend Roger Hinton) about this and he gave me some wise words that I've never forgotten. He said that if you are truly worried about having committed the unpardonable sin, then you haven't because you'd be spiritually dead and somewhat unconcerned if you were in that state. Whilst we should never presume on the grace of God and His plan for our lives, we should always be mindful of Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) and His Word on the subject of rejoicing over the salvation of the one repentant sheep (Luke 15:3-7) even though ninety nine (99) were already safely accounted for.

Yes, we should never take the sacrifice on the cross of the LORD Jesus Christ for granted but on the other hand we should acknowledge that from the moment we accept Jesus as our LORD and Saviour, we are a work in progress and He will "give you an expected end" (Jeremiah 29:11) if, ultimately, we allow Him to. Remember that spiritual heroes such as Moses and David both sinned but they were still used by God and ran their race. Christians should keep short accounts with their Lord yet we know (without abusing the efficaciousness of His Finished Work on the Cross via His shed blood) that we would have to go a long way to be beyond forgiveness. Perhaps that is why Solomon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote in the selected scripture that a righteous man may fall seven times (a finite number and also God's number of completeness) as if looking forward to the perfect sacrifice of His Messiah.

Remember this also: As it is often in the physical, so also is it in the spiritual. If we fall in the natural, we should get up immediately. The longer we wait to get back up, the harder it is to start walking again until one day it becomes impossible. If we fall in the spiritual, we should also get up by getting right with God quickly lest He harden our hearts ...

Life Lessons: Heed Those Weeds!

#880: Hello again folks! Having spent some time this Summer attempting to tidying up my back garden, I've once again had to address the perennial nuisance of the occurrence of those dreaded weeds.

It can be back breaking to spend hours extracting the plethora of dandelions and other annoying plants from your borders but well worth it when finished. Yet, like the sin that so easily besets us, it isn't long before those weeds return if we leave things be and don't keep on top of them. Much like if we don't keep regularly avoiding or confessing our sins, our walk with the Lord can go awry and He can seem so far away not so long after He felt so close to us in our walk. As it is in the natural, so it it is in the spiritual. The LORD Jesus Christ talked about something similar in Matthew 12 thus:

"When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." (Matthew 12:43-45)

Weeds teach us one thing. If we don't keep tilling the ground, the weeds will be back and, likewise, if we don't live our lives in reverence to the LORD, bad habits and habitual sins will also return. Jesus taught us that even if a person is freed from their demons (literally), we might well end up in a much worse condition in the end than we were at the beginning - if we're not careful. Remember that He told the woman caught in adultery to "go, and sin no more" (John 8:3-11) after she had been brought before Him and He had released her.

Fake Plandemic Exposed Again

#879: The LORD Jesus Christ warned His disciples - and by extension true Christians - about deceptions so cunning, plausible and widespread in the last days that even the elect (His people) would be taken in. Indeed, He repeated the warning often in the Olivet Discourse (read Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21) as did the Apostles Peter and John in the their New Testament letters. The current CONvid-19 plandemic provides ample proof of this satanic ploy as we see governments impose ridiculous restrictions on their citizens such as social distancing, the wearing of masks and the effective banning of church attendance.

Perhaps more concerning is the fact that aside from the few brave doctors, nurses and clinicians who are questioning the current happenings such as Vernon Coleman, Kate Shemirani, Rashid Buttar, Andrew Kaufman, Sherri Tenpenny and Judy Mikovitz, there is a drive towards a wholesale mass vaccination campaign headed up and funded in part by known eugenicist Bill Gates. It is those vaccines (which do not work and have caused much death and misery) built on the easily disproven germ theory and the ensuing much touted COVI-PASS health passports that this writer believes will form the basis if not foundation of the long prophesied Mark of the Beast (United Nations one world government) as per Revelation 13:15-18.
We need in the above excerpt that not only is another prominent pathologist is not only terming the World Hell Organisation as "criminal" but is also stating that there is no evidence of a pandemic and no evidence of CONvid-19 specific antibodies as well as repeating the known facts that not only is the amplified RNA test completely unreliable but the so-called vaccine will (of course) be useless and likely a vehicle to implant and change the DNA of millions of people.

DECEPTION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME!

The purpose of this article is not to frighten or confuse believers but to inform them and promote the building up of their most holy faith in the Living and Written Word of God as the final time of testing arrives and the Second Advent of the LORD Jesus Christ comes into view. This is a time to share the True Gospel, be vigilant, to watch and to warn not only Christians but whosoever crosses our proverbial path as to what lies ahead and how near those days are.

My New Normal

#878: The current fake Plandemic CONvid-19 and related ridiculous actions and fiscal suicide currently being rolled out and enforced by governments (remember that the word Government Means Mind Control) all over the plane (note: not the globe) has led this writer to consider a list of ten (10) things that I may never do or participate again, particularly if the unhealthy practices of social distancing and muzzling (the wearing of masks which will cause you to continually breathe in your own immune system exhalations and carbon dioxide) continue in the current brainwashing known as 'the new normal' thus ...

(1) I may never travel on a plane, train or bus again
(2) I may never see Wolves FC play again at Molineux
(3) I may never visit a cinema again
(4) I may never visit a pub again
(5) I may never visit a restaurant or cafe again
(6) I may never go bowling again
(7) I may never visit a shopping centre again
(8) I may never attend a gig again
(9) I may never peruse in a second hand record shop again
(10) I may never visit a book shop again

Although the above roster seems draconian and harsh, based on the fact that I'm already seeing significant benefits from Leaving Social Media Behind and Shunning Mainstream Media, I do believe that my own chosen 'new normal' will give me more time for family and the things of God, a less complicated, simpler way of life being much less involved in this present darkness ...

Shunning Mainstream Media

#877: In my previous post Leaving Social Media Behind, I mentioned that I'd divorced myself from social media and was enjoying not a few benefits. This particular writer also forgot to state that I was no longer seeking out or reading/watching mainstream media 'news'.

By using the term 'mainstream media' I mean compliant UK government propaganda machines such as the BBC, ITV, Sky News and Channel 4 et al.

The combined effect of this is that one feels less fear, oppression, pressure and a return to healthy mental health as well as clearer thinking when it comes to understanding the times that we live in and will soon endure as prophesied in the Word of God. Be free! Try it!

Leaving Social Media Behind

#876: I just wanted to let you know that this particular writer had decided to part ways with social media in recent weeks just in case you might have been trying to get in touch with me via Fakebook or Twitter. There are many benefits to leaving social media including not jumping through hoops looking for notifications and fending off trolls or naysayers. I can honestly say that I'm reading more, studying the Word more, walking more and generally feeling all the more better.

I am confident that the LORD Jesus Christ will bring people across my path as he sees fit going forward. My writings will continue and I hope that you will be blessed as we go on. Please consider praying for me: for fellowship, for strength, for direction and that I may be pleasing to God.

Please be reminded that my email address is: sinclair.keith@talk21.com

The Pharmakeia Future

"And they [the rest of mankind] did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts." ~ Revelation 9:21

#875: The above scripture describes part of the aftermath of the sixth trumpet, in that unregenerate men and women will still not repent despite the overwhelming evidence that will be before their eyes of the existence of the One True Triune God. It's interesting to note that the English word "sorceries" is translated from the modern Greek word "pharmakeia" and can also be translated interchangeably (depending on the context) into the words "pharmacy" (also by extension "pharmaceutics" and "drugs") and "witchcraft".

In other words, you could read Revelation 9:21 as that the unsaved people of that time will not repent of their murders or sorceries or drugs or witchcraft or sexual immorality (fornication) during a period that the LORD Jesus Christ describes as "[a time] such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be" (Mark 13:19). This near future scenario with its huge emphasis on the mass usage of drugs (vaccines too) is fast approaching. Believers should not therefore be surprised to see the building blocks being put in place right now by the likes of the WHO (World Hell Organisation), Big Pharma and "Kill Bill" Gates with their intended mass vaccination propaganda on the back of the CONvid-19 plandemic.

This is a time to share the True Gospel, be vigilant, to watch and to warn not only Christians but whosoever crosses our proverbial path as to what lies ahead and how near those days are.

When You Hit The Wall

"And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (II Corinthians 12:7-10)

#874: The Christian life is often like a marathon. One of the aspects of running a marathon is hitting the wall - the rather sudden feeling of tiredness and lack of energy when your glycogen dips beneath a certain level. Believers can often hit a spiritual wall too in their personal marathon.

Paul had a weakness that he termed "a thorn in the flesh". It was something that hindered his walk to the point when he pleaded with the LORD Jesus Christ three times to have it taken away. He called it a "messenger of Satan" but the LORD dealt with it in a somewhat different manner than he expected in that it was used to demonstrate His boundless grace and the important truth that it is when we are weak, spent and cannot rely on our own strength than we can hand over the reigns of our own weaknesses and failings and, as the saying goes, "Let go and let God!"

We all have our thorns in the flesh, some more than others due to our life choices and/or our lot in life. When we are in our own seasons of buffeting, their is a strong temptation to give in or cease moving forward when we hit our own wall.

It is those moments when we press on despite those thorns and thistles. It is easy to take the foot off the pedal and excuse ourselves to indulge, especially when nobody else is about. It is also at those times when we develop integrity, do the right thing and die to self. So the next time you hit your proverbial wall, remember to let go and let God!

Government Means Mind Control

 
#873: Whilst Christians are told to pray "for kings, and for all that in authority" (I Timothy 2:1-3) and to "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's" (Matthew 22:21), we should also be ready to challenge and even disobey our government(s) when their laws contravene or seek to negate the Word of God. One example of this will be the forthcoming edict for all to receive the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:15-18) and the preceding fake CONvid-19 vaccine.

This writer finds it interesting that when one looks at the Latin root of the word "government", we find that it actually means "to control the mind". And this is what we have found in the last three or four months when it comes to the propaganda, deception and fakery espoused by the UK government. Be it the discredited modelling of the CONvid-19 Plandemic by the now disgraced Neil Ferguson or the completely unnecessary social distancing rules or mask warfare imposed on the British populace.

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
~ Romans 12:2 ~

When it comes to controlling the mind, I'd rather my mind be controlled by the Living and written Word of God, the Holy Spirit if not the LORD Jesus Christ Himself.

When You Feel That You've Failed

#872: Ever felt that you've let the LORD down? Ever wondered if you've stretched His grace too far? If you, like me, have been in that place you will also know that God is much bigger than your problems and that not only is He is in the redemption business, He also is the greatest when it comes to our spiritual repair and recovery. We read:

"Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away - for it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. “But go, tell His disciples - and Peter - that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you." (Mark 16:1-7)

Imagine how Peter was feeling. He had denied His Lord three times after swearing he would stand by Him and had fled in tears from the scene. But God did not condemn him. God knew the full facts. God knew Peter's heart and how he felt. In the scripture quoted above, we find that the "young man" - doubtless an angel of the LORD - tells the first witnesses of the Resurrection to go into Galilee where they will see the risen LORD Jesus Christ. But did you notice that Peter is singled out and given a special, separate mention aside from the disciples almost as if to reassure him that he is still in the LORD's plans even though he had denied Him thrice. This truth alone should comfort those believers who slip up, stumble and henceforth feel that they have blown it big time.

I never cease to be amazed what new treasures are revealed in the Word of God, even with scriptures that have been read on many occasions and with which we are so very familiar. I pray that this word of encouragement finds those in search of it and in need of it.

All Is Not What It Seems

#871: Over the years, the LORD Jesus Christ has revealed many things to this writer in light of the huge amount of current state sourced propaganda and mass media falsehoods that have enslaved the world and even deceived true born again Christians. The number (3) is a number that keeps popping up regularly in my life and I thought that I'd today simply list three huge outright lies whose impact on our education and perception of the world in which we live which contradict the Word of God and, sadly, mask the Creator from those made in His image.

They lied about history ~ evolutionary theory is false
They lied about biology ~ germ theory is false
 They lied about cosmology ~ heliocentric model is false
In other words, the religion of 'modern science' is false

Never forget that the god of this world (II Corinthians 4:4) is the father of lies (John 8:44), is the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), is a murderer from the beginning and abides not in the truth (John 8:44), walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he might devour (I Peter 5:8) and is the accuser of the brethren (Revelation 12:10). Seek Truth and shun lies.

Three Times Thrice

#870: A recent re-reading of the Gospel of Mark has been a real blessing. Aside from the roll call of amazing miracles performed by the LORD Jesus Christ and His disciples. This writer noticed another set of interesting happenings towards its finale that I wanted to bring to your attention ...

The disciples fell asleep three times whilst Jesus prayed  (Mark 14:34-42)
Peter denied Jesus on three times after His arrest (Mark 14:66-72)
According to Mark, Jesus appeared three times to His disciples following His resurrection: To Mary Magdalene, to the two on the road to Emmaus and the eleven disciples (Mark 16:1-14)

Sometimes when we are low or lacking in faith or are disappointed in ourselves, when we think that we have strayed too far or when we are under attack, it would do us well to remember that the disciples were quite human themselves even as first eyewitnesses to the LORD Jesus Christ.

They fell asleep, they fled, they denied Him and did not believe the reports of His rising from the dead. Whilst we should never take the LORD for granted, we should also remember that God is full of grace and truth, patience, longsuffering and (essentially) forgiveness. I pray that these words comfort you if you are in a struggle as you read these words.

God bless you ... KJS ... 2nd June 2020

Barriers

#869:
Barriers
We write one thing,
And do another,
We say a few things,
And frustrate His grace thereof,
We use our mouth as a weapon,
And stop our ears from reproof,
We read the Word,
And hand out a sentence,
We refuse a commandment,
And decline condemnation,
Hear the words of the Lord:

There is nothing from without that can defile a man,
It is what comes out of a man that defiles him.

Out of the same mouth proceeds blessings and cursing,
These things ought not be so.

Whenever you stand praying, 
If you have anything against anyone - forgive,
That your Father in heaven may forgive you.
If you do not forgive others,
Neither will your Father in heaven forgive you.

All these are barriers.
Barriers to tear down,
Barriers to remove,
Barriers to perfect peace.

God bless you ... KJS ... 1st June 2020
