   Are you ready to hunker down & ride out the storm? Daniel warned Belshazzar, "God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it" (Daniel 5:26). The kingdom of the Antichrist also is numbered: it has an expiration date! Satan's kingdom is NUMBERED! And he knows it, too: "...the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth he hath but a short time."   YES!
   I don't know about y'all, but I am SICK of Satan's rule! I am so ready for a regime change! I hate everything he says & everything he does. But the scumbag is a lame duck and he knows it. He's going to try a last ditch effort, not to win, but to make his defeat as costly as possible. The good news is, the clock is running!
   We don't have to defeat him, brothers: Jesus already did that!!!!  We just have to hang in there & hold on until the clock runs out. Jesus says: "...he that endureth to the end shall be saved" (Matthew 10:22) and, "In your patience possess ye your souls....and when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."  (Luke 21: 19,28)
   All we have to do is survive until the kingdom of darkness is destroyed! Don't wimp out, don't back down, don't compromise.....just hold fast unto the end. Did not our Lord promise, "I will be with you even unto the end of this age." ? We don't have to throw a "Hail Mary" pass folks: just take the knee & let the game clock run out!
   Have you not read, "...from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days."  Daniel 12:11-12)
   I tell you, the moment the abomination of desolation sets up, I will be marking my calendar: 1,335 days, 1334, 1333, 1332......that's not even four years, folks! Less time than you spent in High School (only a whole lot more evil). But we can do it! Be encouraged! Satan's kingdom is numbered! He's looking at a 1,000 year prison sentence! I can't wait!
 Sure, things suck right now, but "the triumphing of the wicked is short" (Job 20:5) For this Scripture must needs be fulfilled: "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever!" (Revelation 11:15) Yeah!
   And I ain't saying it's going to be easy, guys: far from it. But God has promised to give His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. This is the time for faith & patience. Even so, Come, Lord Jesus! Peace!

The View from Here

   Rip Van Winkle awoke from sleep after twenty years to find the world he knew had disappeared completely. As I look about upon my country, my society, my culture, I feel as bewildered as ol' Rip. When I was born again (as we called it then) back in the summer of '76, the world was a far different place!
   The Seven Words Ya Can't Say on Television weren't said on television. Books that today are required reading would have been banned from High School then. Though evolution was taught in public schools and Ancient Alien theory had already been born, most people still believed the Bible was the Word of God.
   Guys who wanted to be girly were called sissies, not heroes. Everything is upside-down and backwards from how it once was. Men are changed into women, women into men, kids into adults and adults into kids. The "Furries" masquerade as animals while lobbyists fight for human rights for apes. Computers are getting smarter, people getting dumber.
   The Confederate flag is coming down, the LGBT rainbow banner going up (and going up over many churches!). Vulgarity is so rampant that Charlie the Tuna doesn't even bother discussing "good taste" anymore; this generation wouldn't have a clue what he was talking about. And respect? Where will you find that?
   What of freedom? We had that, and privacy, too. There were laws against usury, protecting borrowers from exhorbitant interest rates. Now banks charge you $3.00 to use your own money!  The world has changed, the Church has changed, and yes, I too, have changed: not always for the better. Many have even tried to change the Scriptures themselves. But God says,
"For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." 
"Of old hast Thou laid the foundations of the earth: and the Heavens the works of Thy hands.They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same,and Thy years shall have no end."
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
"JESUS CHRIST the same yesterday, and today, and forever."
   What a comfort to know our firm foundation will never alter or vary! Peace!
