Hi Folks! As a teacher with somewhat of a narrowed focus of ministry I realize my readers need much more than a steady diet of my rebuke and correction of the many errors that plague the modern believer. I would like to recommend to you someone I feel really has his finger on the pulse of world events and how they relate to biblical prophecy being fulfilled in our lifetime.
His name is John Haller and he has a weekly video presentation I have been following for quite some time now. I think you would truly be benefited by what he has to say. Here is where you can find his work:
John Haller’s Prophecy Updates and Teachings
Here is his latest ‘update’ on Youtube. Check it out, be encouraged, and get informed! P.B.

We love him, because he first loved us. -John an apostle of Christ
To love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30) is not only quite fitting (and well-deserved on the part of the Lord), but it is also a commandment. But who among us can say he has fulfilled this commandment to the fullest measure? I make no such claim personally; though I would very much like to.
But thankfully our Heavenly Father is full of grace and mercy; and I truly believe he considers an honest effort at fulfilling the First Commandment as acceptable. Through the strength of the Holy Spirit and the leading of the Word of God we absolutely can show the Lord a good return on the love he has invested in us.
And through the Scriptures we have much insight as to just what truly exemplifies a genuine love for God. Let’s look at that. Continue reading “How To Show The Lord You Really Love Him!”
Though I always hope to post an article each week I don’t always accomplish that goal. This is one of those weeks. I do have a couple of writings I am working on, and some promptings from the Lord I am studying out (concerning technology and the Mark of the Beast); but nothing I feel is ready for presentation at this time.
I hope you would take time to look over the list of my previous articles and find one you have not yet examined. I trust you would find something useful. And, as always, THANK YOU for your prayers!
Blessings to you;

Many of today’s ‘enlightened’ believers would take great exception to my previous article on the deceptive teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation crowd and the Seven Mountains Mandate they are trying to shove down our throats. But, opinions and accusations aside, we have an old saying up here in Montana:
The proof is in the puddin’!
The Word of God is absolute truth unfettered by the ravages of time or societal change. It needs no ‘update’ or embellishment to make it relevant today. It is a Living Word that speaks just as clearly to us as it did the believers to whom the Apostles and Prophets penned it. But sadly, a growing number of folks are settings aside the timeless truths of the Bible and embracing ‘new revelation’ that supposedly supersedes the ‘old wine-skin’ of the traditional (and historical) beliefs of the Body of Christ.
A recent article by Johnny Enlow posted to his blog and also on the website the Elijah List (neither of which I would recommend to you as a reliable source of truth) is perfect example of the N.A.R. deception I am trying to warn my readers about. I would like to point out some of the blatant errors present in that article that are standard beliefs among many of today’s most prominent Prophets, Apostles, and Teachers claiming to be spear-heading the move of God in this generation.

Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch? – Jesus the Christ
Speaking out against the false vision embraced by so many of today’s most popular ministers has cost me a lot of readership; and I cannot say that does not bother me.
Because it certainly does!
While I am not out to build a big name for myself, or any kind of organization to sit in control of, I am quite concerned with reaching as many people as possible with the important truths which the Lord lays a burden upon me to share. If I am going to be faithful to the call of Christ upon my life (to speak the truth in love) I must stay the course. I must tell it the way God tells me!
And God is telling me to declare to you now that the overwhelming share of celebrity ministers today are following a false vision. They are deceived by a satanic deception that is leading them (and their followers!) into the arms of the destroyer of souls! Are YOU following those who are following a false vision?

Where you fed a big ole’ helping of Stuffed Scripture at church last service?
by Paul Benson
At times the Lord speaks to me quite strongly through giving me images in my mind, and then placing great emphasis upon those images. He once gave me the shocking image of a deviate spastic woman in a wheelchair (The Spastic Harlot); and then shared with me the grief of his heart with a sad realization the image of that woman’s defiled and spastic body (impure and not under the control of it’s head) was his view of American Christianity! That image still weighs upon me, and breaks my heart to this very day.
On another occasion I kept getting this picture of a dejected Christmas stocking, emptied of all the precious contents that had in recent days made it an object of fascination, now laying amort among the colorful trash that straws the floor of most living-rooms on Christmas morning. Having lost its appeal this sad stocking was cast aside; thrown to the floor like a piece of refuse. For some reason the image of this empty stocking laying on the floor seemed to fill me with great sadness and remorse.
How much sadder yet to receive from the Holy Spirit the insight that this living-room, whose floor was so cluttered with the flashy (but now shredded) trappings and trimmings of Holiday festivity, was the American Church; and that discarded stocking was the precious Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ! Let’s explore that thought a bit, and I think maybe you will agree with my sentiment. Continue reading “Scripture Stuffing and an Empty Stocking!”
LUNCH DOWN AT THE CHAR-BROILED
and SOUL-SEARED INN
(Just Quote Jesus)
by Dick Carmack
(Obviously Inspired by C.S. Lewis)
The Devil and “Most Senior Demon Honorable Screwtape” were having a lunch of “Broiled Jr. Devil” (those that had messed up) with dessert of frozen bureaucrat. They also had table guests from the CIA, NSA, FBI and the White House, most wearing hoods over their faces, and all of whom knew all about the mega-data collection processes called “Facebook, Twitter etc…” That’s the internet system that has been set up to build dossiers on every living person on earth, so in case of need, it would all be there in black and white.
Screwtape, double and triple chewing his Leg of Demon, sweating profusely, screwed up his courage and ventured, “Sir.” Continue reading “LUNCH DOWN AT THE CHAR-BROILED and SOUL-SEARED INN – Dick Carmack”
No post this week.
See ya soon!
Blessings upon those who love our Christ;

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. -John an Apostle of Jesus Christ
Those who know me personally, or are familiar with my writings, have come to understand I am a bit of a ‘Jesus freak’. As a self-destructive, alcoholic, drug-addicted street hoodlum living on the edge of destruction, who got saved and set free in 1980, it was not religion that brought life to me. It was a person. It was Jesus!
Zooming through life in a haze of booze, dope, criminal activity, and short-lived relationships, the revelation of God’s love for me expressed through the sacrifice of his Son was an unexpected fork in the road. A divine insight that not only changed the course of a life that was rapidly approaching a tragic conclusion, but forever changed who I was as an individual. And, although over the years my Christian walk has been fraught with many pitfalls and personal failings, it has always been Jesus who lifted me up and restored me. The author of my faith will truly be the finisher of my faith as well!
When I look at the state of Western Christianity it grieves me severely. So much of it is in direct contradiction to the teachings of Christ and his Apostles! If I had but one last opportunity to express only one last bit of advice to the Body of Christ of this generation it would be this: We, as the Church of the living God, need desperately to put the focus back upon the Lord Jesus Christ!
