END TIME PROPHECY – SIMPLE TO EXPLAIN

There have been a lot of good sermons delivered in the last few weeks, because those in political / societal control are turning the American ship further into deep destructive waters – destructive waters that most Americans are not brave enough to stand up against. Washington is a reflection of the majority in America. For truly, if millions of Americans were keeping Washington in line with God’s traditions and laws, our entire existence would change for the better almost overnight. America would be the nation she once was, when other nations worked to emulate the overall positive existence of the American people. Our government would once again tow the line of the majority of the people for fear of losing their jobs. Satan would crawl back under his familiar rock to hide for another season.  But, I can sum up the reality of all Biblical wisdom, and end time prophecy in one question:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

It is the age old pattern of Israel, and it is the pattern of Christianity, of history repeating itself every time mankind forgets who our Creator is, starts behaving as if men are gods, and forgets that we live for God’s glory. This question above is one that we each must come to terms with, and be prepared to not only live with the consequences, but are forcing our young to also live with the consequences of our individual choice.

It really is that simple to explain. I have recently been asked the age old questions that have been asked of every Christian who has studied the Bible for thousands of years:
1. Don’t all religions lead to salvation?
2. Where in Biblical history are we; isn’t the answer in Revelation?

I explain it like this. Milk Christians often go straight to reading Revelation to find answers. The answers aren’t just in one book of the Bible designed for Milk Christians. Salvation is through Jesus Christ, period. To study Revelation, you must go through every book of the entire (OT & NT) Bible to understand it – why Revelation is at the end. I encourage the masses who have not studied the Bible to do so. You will find answers to questions you didn’t even know you have. Only by studying the Bible will you receive the truth of Who actually wrote it. This is a truth that can only be obtained by your direct experience. I can tell you the truth all day long and give you fifty examples in short order to back it up – but – that will mean nothing to you. You must seek the truth to receive it.

There have been many “pre-tribulation” times throughout history. But, so far, each time, mankind turns the ship of earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory, and turns the ship away from the end times. One time, in the future, mankind will not wake up and turn the ship of all earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory. Only God knows which time that will be. For God lives outside of His creation (space/time continuum), and only He can see when that will happen.

Those of us who think of ourselves as the watchmen are absolutely saying, WOW, today does seem to be the season before the tribulation years – but, we do not know for sure. We are praying mankind wakes up one more time and strives to live for God’s glory. Yes, our nation (and most of the world) are being ruled by the Prince of Darkness – it says so in the Bible. His days are numbered. One day soon the end-time-prophecies will come true . . . or not, if mankind wakes up again. It all revolves around that one sentence – again:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

WHY WE ARE FAILING

Where is that pre-ordered line between right and wrong that I remember from my youth?
Without it we are living in Satan’s realm without our Armor;
The Armor that would have protected us.
But, too many have cast it easily aside –
Where lies and excuses reign as today’s truth.
And all the good people said what can I do against such evil?
Where murder goes unpunished.
And all the good people said, what can I do about such evil.
Where leaders are created by evil minion puppeteers.
[I will take a stand with the word minion – it means an evil entity which is used for evil purpose, by a greater evil entity that usually hides in the shadows. Gay actually means happy; I would like that word back too.]
And all the good people shuddered, and said I must pretend I cannot see such evil.
Even just men finally sell their souls to Satan to win elections; thinking they will fulfill their good intentions, in spite of who they now belong to. You know this one! The end justifies the means – except you and I know in our hearts that the road to hell really is paved with good intentions.
And all of his good people said, no, not my friend! I will support him as the lesser evil!
When the boob tube slowly made many women into whores,
Then we laughed with the emasculated girly men,
and then we laughed at all the disrespectful children . . .
THE FATTED GOLDEN SCREEN was then living in high evil cotton.
Where the bad guys win at the end of the show to make us more tolerant; and smear that line between good and evil into oblivion.
You know who they are working for . . .
And all the good people shook their collective heads and declared us insane for remembering our Armor.
And in retaliation to our remembered Armor the enemy within propped up obvious evil political systems, parading as religions of peace . . .
Even rogue anti-Christian Christians are preaching the gospel of YOU, instead of Him.
While Christians are being persecuted around the world, and par 4 smiles.
And Jesus definition of marriage was slain with barely a fight . . .
And our children are stolen and sold into slavery of deviant sexual intent.
And all the good people said it’s not my fault, what could I have done?
And all the good people said, I cannot remember what past generations did . . .
I am lost . . .
I need to be found . . .
What could We THE People have done?
The same as our forefathers
Ephesians 6 (KJV)
1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.

PART TWO – RUNNING IN CIRCLES – ANSWERS

I KNOW!!! What I wrote in Part One was personal, and shocking for that reason. Yes, but, this issue needs exploring to put it in a healthy perspective. It may be an almost exclusive WHITE MIDDLE CLASS issue – I don’t know for sure, and I certainly do not mean to leave anyone out of this group of Boomers due to my ignorance. First, for clarity: What you may, or may not, have perceived from Part One of my commentary is that I am very proud of my son, his soul-mate wife, and my grandchildren. How could he be my son and not be independent, immediately and passionately (inside his domain / home) family oriented, and successful at whatever he chooses to endeavor. When I do see him, he is very forthcoming with apology for his busy life, and never forgets to tell me he loves me. On many occasions over the years he has sincerely rewarded me with praise. I have a file full of Birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas Cards that say wonderful things – not just about his opinion of me – but also, about he and I. Over the last 5 years many people have contacted me privately to tell me their woes that almost mirror mine identically regarding our mostly absent Generation X children (Gen X). I believe I know of several reasons that work in conjunction with each other to have left us with the outcomes we are experiencing. We are a significant number of the Baby Boom Generation (Boomers) who are experiencing the loss of immediate and close relationship with our Gen X children.

1)   An easy one: Boomer’s Parents, and our schools were strict. When Boomers were children, we – who mostly spoke when we were spoken to – made up our minds that we would discipline our children in kinder ways, and listen to what our children had to say. OH boy!!! Speaking for me, I was an idiot. Before the last 20 years with John, I was for all practical purposes a single parent (even when previously married to another child to raise). What my children knew about manipulating me with guilt, even when they were five years old, would have shocked me if I had understood it at that time.

These Gen X children who voiced their opinions on everything under the sun have decided that the candy-xxx discipline we doled out was excessive. Right. Taking my son’s phone out of his bedroom until he brought his grades up, each and every time, caused my son to opine of how truly cruel I was. Well, always, within a week he would bring me notes from all teachers who would relay to me that his work was all turned in and his grade back up to an A or a B – depending on the subject. Discipline works.

One of the chief reasons these Gen Xers avoid us is their embarrassment when their children behave like undisciplined savages. Two minute time outs do zero to discipline children. When one of his children behaves in such manner around John and me, I can see the pure frustration and embarrassment in my son’s eyes and his body language. He knows I can read his signs, and that just compounds the whirlwind of feelings in the room. I can totally understand that his life is easier if the evidence of failed modern acceptable discipline results are not seen by me. When I explain how my young son was the happiest when his boundaries and known consequences were enforced, I also seem to lose any possible bond with my daughter-in-love.

2)   Gen X children are too busy to include their parents in their lives. Fair enough. But, we must ask why do they schedule themselves and their children 24/7/365 days a year? I don’t have a lot of answers here, but do know that their lives are so full of scheduled events, I worry that they have enough time with each other – much less time with John and I.

I remember watching my son being crushed under homework every night and most of his weekends when I made the decision to pull him out of the “gifted and talented” curriculum at school. I believe children need to be children, and that means they should let their imaginations run wild playing outside with other children. My children never met strangers, so they were really good at socializing. If you want to hear laughter in and around your home, you must let your children play outside until they smell like wet puppies.

It seems like our grandchildren’s playmates and best friends are their parents who take them to play dates, and birthday parties’ non-stop all year. On top of that they are taken to dance lessons, acrobatic lessons, piano lessons, and other kinds of lessons. When do these kids get to be in frequent free play outside developing not only social skills, but practical thinking on your feet skills?

3} Below are descriptions, an expert has given to the Boomers, and Gen X which most of our children were born into. I think it gives us some insight into the phenomenon of our children loving us from a distance.
____________________

“BOOMERS Born 1946 – 1964

An amalgam of two distinct sub-sets:  the save-the-world revolutionaries of the ‘60s, followed by the self-improvement party’ers of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.  Career-driven.  The Golden Generation in the American workplace.  Assertive.  Leaders.  Ethical.  Demanding.  Struggled with marriage and parenting.  America will now be a Boomer-led nation into the 2030’s.  This generation will never fully retire, and this is about to change America’s workplace, marketplace, and lifestyle profoundly.

GEN-X Born 1965 – 1981 – [My children were born 1973, and 1979.]

The latch-key kids grew up street-smart but isolated, often with divorced or time-starved dual-career parents.  Entrepreneurial.  Independent.  Creative.  Career “free agents”.  Feel disempowered and disengaged.  Eager to make marriage work and “be there” for their children.  Starting to chalk up some victories in life.  X’ers are rising.  They’ll lead America in the 2030’s and 2040’s.  They will give our nation excellent “idea leadership” but will need training to become good “people leaders”.

“FIRST-WAVE MILLENNIALS Born:  1982 – 1996 (and still coming!)” You can go find this group if you are interested. They are our grandchildren, and some late Boomer children – but, not the Boomer children we are thinking about in this commentary.

____________________

The first thing I noticed is that the “expert” wrote something negative about the Gen X childhood because of their parents, and nothing about Boomer parents. I could write a book on how dysfunctional most Boomer homes were. If they were not actually divorcing, they were constantly threatening to. What sticks out most for me, is that because Boomer parents experienced the Depression as children, and WWII in their teen and young adult lives, they often lived through us – and even forcing us to be whom they wished they could have been as teens and young adults. It is hard to measure up to someone else’s dream. But, I digress . . . we are trying to understand why so many Gen X children have little time for their Boomer parents.

I believe that many Gen Xers hold some kind of a dual loving admiration and jealousy of who we Boomers were, and the world we lived in . . . let us look again at pieces of the Boomer description:

“Career-driven”

We Boomers were “fast trackers” – “movers and shakers” – well read – over educated – self-educated – an amazing society of engaged and successful people. We lived the American dream. White and Blue collar workers came together to achieve the most amazing advances in every industry on the planet. We enjoyed the last decades of true Capitalism, which made the Middle Class grow by leaps and bounds. If this was not Gen X parents, they felt like they were cheated. If it was their parents, they also felt cheated because we worked 55 hour work weeks to get ahead. At the time, we were determined to give our kids any advantage possible to insure their futures were as bright, or brighter than ours.

Somehow, many Gen Xers did not appreciate the link between the Middle Class lifestyle they enjoyed, and how hard we Boomers worked. It also seems probable that when Gen Xers size up todays often negative atmosphere for similar levels of endeavor, they have given up without showing true American Culture at its best, by peacefully fighting back to make the ultimate checks and balances of our government work, and answerable to We The People.

Many Boomers realized that the link between home, food, clothes, schools, entertainment, and the massive man/hours we worked to achieve the best we were capable of providing, was not translating to the values our children should have received by the process. Like many, determined to make them understand, I sent my Gen X teenagers out into the world to earn money after school, and summers.

I remember the first week my teen son worked on a concrete crew; a job I had attained for him. He railed against me for two weeks; claiming I was trying to kill him via jackhammer death in the crouched position to make holes in concrete for rebar. At the end of his second week, he received his first paycheck – and Katie Bar the Door!!!!!! This is undoubtedly the planted seed of why he works so hard and owns his own business. (I really need a smiley face here!) At the end of that summer he wanted to keep working and earning money, and screw school. Not a chance my genius son would be allowed to drop out!

My son received that job because of my connections. Jobs for teenagers in America was a part of our heritage. Due to open borders, the summer and after school jobs that should have been there for our teenaged Gen Xers, to build their young character on, went to adult illegal aliens. When they graduated and entered the workforce, not only did many have no experience to put on their resumes, but the national economic failures left few jobs for them to have. Even those who attained degrees were working for a fraction of what they dreamed, for so long, they would be earning.

Gen Xers by the thousands compared their lives to their parents, and it became easier to disconnect from us than to feel they had failed to keep their place among the Middle Class they were raised in.

Here is where Boomers can visualize good reason for resentment: The day of honorable Capitalism is gone. What our Gen Xers are experiencing is a government hostile to the small and medium business. Endless laws & regulations steal the fruits of their labor. Laws like Obamacare are designed to put a burden on the small and medium business that it cannot bear. What our Gen Xers are dealing with is CRONY Capitalism, whereby large international corporations and our own out of control government are in cahoots to destroy the Middle Class.

Giving away our Gen Xers industries, jobs, and tax dollars to illegal immigrants, and our enemies in foreign countries has done nothing to bring up the standards of any other country, and sold out our American Culture and Heritage. We Boomers understand that the Gen Xers blame us. What the Gen Xers do not understand is that until the last two decades, the deceptions of our government, the undermining of our schools, and the trashing of our economy was done covertly. The last two decades are on both the Boomer and the Gen Xers for allowing it to happen. Sadly, our Gen X children do not have the necessary tools to do a peaceful economic and government re-set . . . they scarcely understand what our American heritage / culture is, therefore they blame their Boomer parents for their “bad luck.”
4)  Major differences in the Boomers and our Gen X children which has caused division over time:

–     Fear. Boomers experienced some levels of fear in their young lives regarding assassinations of leaders, Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, and Vietnam. This pales in comparison to a long list of major events our Gen X children have experienced in their young lives moving forward to the present day: being desensitized by the sex and violence on the big and little screen, 9/11, crazy dictators obtaining Nukes, the roller coaster economy, EMP threats, trying to determine why there is government insistence on a debunked Global Warming – and all the business smothering regulations created because of it, terrorist threats including biological warfare, never ending wars and rumors of wars, explosive economy with constant threats of a dollar collapse.

–     Faith. Boomers were raised in an atmosphere of Christian principles and values, and a strong family unit. Even if Boomers were not actively attending church, or even Christian, society’s principles and values was the choice of America. 93% of Americans were Christian when I graduated high school in 1970. Of course there were criminals, because we are flawed humans. Most Christians in the 60’s considered themselves “born again,” gospel believing, Christians who were positively changed on the day they accepted the Lord into their lives.

The Christianity of today must largely be the apostate kind with weak principles and values, because we have millions of secularists telling us that evil or bad is just as valid for living as those principles and values that I have carried with me from my childhood forward. Today 78% of Americans are “Christians.” They do not like the crime levels, and ignored American Christian principles and values any more than I do, but they are willing to say your god and my God are the same god, and “whatever” when you try to tie them down on living in a Christian America. Just one quick example, in a sea of examples we could live by . . . we would have to throw out 95% of our television and movie content to bring our lives in line with Christian principles and values.

Due to my upbringing, Boomers expected to be instrumental in our children having a better life than we did. Due to my son’s upbringing, he expects to be instrumental in his children having a better life.
In the long run, and looking at the rule, and not the exception, our expectations will not be met, and more so for my dear grandchildren.

I do not have all of the answers as to why so many of our Gen Xers have distanced themselves from parents they love and respect. The several reasons above are part of the phenomenon. I have read that America has twice turned around inside of six months back to the Lord, and Christian principles and values. Is it possible for this to happen when so many are just making it through each day the best they can, and isolating those from their lives that may be able to help them more spiritually than the apostate church / secular church that is sweeping up our Gen Xers – if they even bother with church at all.

Many, many Boomers have abandoned our churches, recognizing them for the changed entities they are in the process of becoming. THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST. There should never have been division, upon division, upon division of The Christian Church. Along with these divisions – departing from our foundational Christian teachings for man-made denominational religions – departing from the worship in Jewish homes in the early church for man-made cathedrals and statues with so much money it could have fed the world over and over for decades.

My Mother’s Day card from my son, “Mom, I’ve been thinking of all the great memories from being your son! Thank you for all the fun and love I experienced through my life because of you!!” This doesn’t sound like a Gen X son who neglects his relationship with his mother. It is like my Gen Xer is away at some insane camp that Boomers are not allowed into. They know what we would say and do. The “wisdom of grandparents” is not something these Gen Xers are willing to allow into their lives, and their children’s lives. It would not be convenient to the image they have of themselves, when we are near and dear.

As I stated in Part One, I am always open to any ideas you have for solving this heart wrenching problem. How do we bring our Gen Xers back into our lives, and the whole country back to the Lord? It is true that all of the above is almost mind numbing when you consider it all together, but each issue needs to be reconciled before there is unity in our families. There is so much division in our land that is described as political, racial, ethical, etc. etc. etc. I know that our willingness to live with these political issues, without calling the leaders out for lying about every division they have caused, has left the nation in sad repair. Perhaps if we could solve the divisions between generations first, we could then tackle the rest of it together.

FROM THE HEART – WHAT WE BELIEVE . . .

If I hear one more Christian leader say that all religions worship the same God,
my head may explode.
I tell you with profound confidence that all humanity does not worship my Christian
/ Jewish God – our Creator.
Contradictions in the many religions are not compatible,
and cannot be ignored.
One huge example is how Christians are taught to treat women
VS. how other religions are taught to treat women.
If you do not openly denounce another religion preaching the abuse of women,
you will be held accountable on your day of judgement as if you also abused women.
My Bible tells me, as a Christian, to not be deceived;
for it is our individual responsibility to not be deceived.
When you are held responsible for how you chose to live your life . . .
you will not be able to blame any other person for your choices and beliefs.

IN THESE TROUBLING TIMES OF LIES AND TURMOIL IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . . .

I write of faith, honor, personal responsibility, and good vs. evil. I pray America reads Christian commentators, and rekindles our flame for the truth – and one by one The Sleeping Giant of the American people Wake Up. The Sleeping Giant of America was never her government, but the engine behind the government, We the People! Helloooooo? Are you there?

Do not be deceived. The enemy within and outward does not live by our code of honor, truth, and justice. You must never be deceived by the hordes of those who care not for your life, or the lives of your children. Oh Lord, help my nation see God’s Truth and Justice. In life and in death I shall love my God, my Creator, who created me in His Image, in His Truth, in His Commandments of Law. Yes and Amen.

No matter who has invaded the realm of our United States Constitution, we, God’s children will raise His standard once again . . . for our children. Throw off the chains of false money that is a lie. You work for yourselves and your families, and your local communities – this is what has been forgotten. They hope you will become hordes of anger and violence, so they can finally totally control you. Should the unthinkable harms come to America from our own government, you must remain peaceful, faithful, and of sound thought and planning to survive. In the meantime, turn off any media that offends our Christian values and the futures of our children — in violence for the sake of violence — sex for the sake of robbing our children and our marriages of goodness — and “news” designed to trigger your button to destructive anarchy. If anyone moves to encourage you to being brainwashed, tell them that the medias crossed the line of art and / or truth a long, long time ago.

Not to become self-pious as the pretenders of the Faith did many times before. (Inquisition, witch trials, and such in history.) But instead to live in faith, love, and personal charity as our grandparents did as the “greatest generation.” Together, we must re-build our industry / endeavor in America, remembering that we are still the “land of the free, and home of the brave.” We must reject those that come to break our laws openly, and invite those who come here legally. We can improve our immigration laws, but we must reject those who come to take our jobs, and remain loyal to another nation. Those nations all have very strict immigration laws, but shred ours to pieces – We Must Reject such one-sided thinking.

Our Christian strength must grow in our common Christian faith, and not be mired down in man-made denominational and secular curriculum. There will always be Christian denominations before Christ’s return, but they must not divide us as an American Christian Nation.

There are certain aspects of the Bible that we can all understand together. When Jesus walked the Earth in Biblical times, He was a Jew, and His original disciples were Jewish, and preached to the Jewish people. The Old Testament is the story Creation, and of why, who, when, and how Israel began, and its Jewish Biblical history. The New Testament holds the history of the prophecies being fulfilled regarding our Jewish King / Messiah. Because they knew not who Jesus was, God blinded Israel regarding Jesus until the age of the Gentiles / Christians was completed. The New Testament introduces one disciple for the Gentile, Paul. The Pauline Epistles in the New Testament were written for the Christian. The end of the New Testament is primarily written for Israel whom will experience the tribulation. The entire Bible was written for the Jew and the Christian for their learning and understanding of God, Jesus (God come to man on Earth as our Savior and our King), and the Holy Spirit (our connection to Jesus once he left Earth after His resurrection.)

Those are grounds we can meet on and delve into the deeper meanings from that common platform. It is interesting to note that today Jews are becoming believers in Jesus Christ as their personal savior. The entire Holy Bible is a message to man from God that has captured the hearts and minds of men for thousands of years.

The enemy wants you to deny your personal relationship with God, in favor of their group relationship with their false god(s). The enemy is preaching about a combined salvation of their group of political people in lies and treachery. The enemy places human life at the bottom of importance on Earth. They resemble Earth worshipers in their faith. They belittle you and desire to destroy you if you “cling to your Bibles.” The anti- Christian / anti-life enemy is the greatest destroyer of men and women – with their destructive agendas that they paint in pretty pictures that never happen. Their War on Poverty has managed to enslave millions into being dependent on the state, thus robbing them of full lives of good endeavor; and more often robbing them of a personal relationship with the Lord.

May I remind you of the scriptures regarding the “Whole Armour of God”:
“Ephesians 6:10-20 King James Version (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. [I implore you to understand exactly what this is saying.]
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
