    Devotional: November 22

    Devotional: November 22

    Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)

    From the beginning of time, God made it clear that it is not good for His people to be alone (Gen. 2:18). God designed us to cooperate. Throughout the Scriptures He speaks of His people as a community that accomplishes more together than separately. God did not create us as isolated individuals, each seeking to achieve our own goals. Rather, the success of our endeavors depends upon our interdependence. This is why He established the Church and released His Holy Spirit to empower the community of believers to spread the gospel. We are to be a kingdom of priests (1 Pet. 2:9).

    Devotional: November 20

    Devotional: November 20

    And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God. (Deuteronomy 28:2)

    When you walk in fellowship with God, you do not have to ask Him to bless you. He wants to bless you! Just as you enjoy surprising someone you love with unexpected gifts, God delights in giving you His gifts in times and ways that you might never expect. God’s blessings often come in the midst of your everyday life, an encouraging telephone call in the middle of a busy morning or a letter you receive at the end of a hard day. A friend may drop by to help when you are overwhelmed, or you may receive unexpected financial help at a time of need. Often, God’s blessings do not come in spectacular ways but in the ordinary busyness of your life. They come just when you most need an expression of God’s love.

    Help the Desperate People of the Philippines

    A heart for those who have lost everything

    On November 8, 2013, a massive category 5 Typhoon that some experts are now describing as so massive there is no existing category for such a storm (Category 7?), struck the Philippines with a force unknown at any time in the history of the world. The eye wall of this monster Typhoon was just offshore from Bantayan Island. The government of this Island estimates that 95 percent of the homes were completely destroyed. The number of dead and suffering mounts daily.

    At just 6 by 10 miles in size, this tiny Pacific atoll is home to over 130,000 peacefull fishermen. Living in Nipa huts made from the natural coconut trees from the island, the 195 mile per hour peak winds of Super Typhoon Yolanda, also known as “Haiyan,” decimated every native structure on the island.

    For the past three years, we have conducted a ministry to the poor of Bantayan Island, Philippines.

    Today is Tuesday, November 12, 2013. On Sunday, November 17, we depart for Bantayan Island to truck in food and supplies for the desperate people of the island. Cut off from the world, no electricity will be available for up to 4 months. We received reports two days ago that in the neighborhood where we conduct our outreach to the inhabitants of the island, over 28,000 people are homeless, wandering the streets searching for food and water.

  • Super Typhoon Yolanda to Strike Bantayan Island

    Super Typhoon Yolanda to Strike Bantayan Island

    As of Friday, November 8, 2013, 11:30 pm, weather authorities tell us that it is certain that Bantayan Island will suffer a direct strike by this massive Class 5, signal 4, Typhoon.

    Winds are expected to be close to 180 miles per hour, or approximately 230 kilometers per hour. Storm surge from the sea is expected at 7 meters or 21 feet.

    If this forecast holds true, no structures on the East facing side of the island will survive.

    All those who live on the East side of the island where the storm will be most severe should evacuate to higher groud, in a concrete structure which can endure the winds and waves. Those who live in structures along Santa Fe are especially vulnerable.

    We have many friends who live in this area, and many of the poor who live in structures that cannot endure this type of storm, are in great danger. Please tell everyone who lives on the coast to evacuate to higher ground before the Typhoon arrives in the next 12 hours as signal 4.

    We are praying for the safety and preservation of all the people of Bantayan island and know that the Lord will be with all of you in this great time of distress.

    Please pray for the poor of the island who cannot evacuate the island and must endure the full force of this massive storm.

    We are planning to arrive on the island later this month to bring fresh water, rice and medical supplies as we are able to obtain them. There will be great need of outside help from those around the world who can help. Please give whatever you can afford to help us supply the needs of the people of Bantayan Island. Make a donation to help HERE

    We will update this article as information becomes available.

    America’s Spiritual Heritage

    America’s Spiritual Heritage

    “The Puritans understood 4 points of Government”

    Civil
    Church
    Family
    Self

    They believed that all four of these forms of government came by a covenant with God.

    Today, because the Church is not strong, the family is not strong, therefore self government is not strong, therefore we see the effects upon our civil government, it is weak and our freedoms are in great danger of being taken away.

    It all started because America has been weakened Spiritually.

    America is weak Spiritually because we do not know our Spiritual Heritage, we allow Secular Humanists to dictate to us the lie that America was not formed as a Christian Nation, and that the men that were used to found our nation, were not Christians.

    They tell us that Religion has no place in American government, when in fact there would have been no American government had in not been for deeply Spiritual men who loved Jesus Christ and based our entire government on the Bible.

    Fortunatly for all of us today, there is a public record of all of the events that happened at the forming of our nation.
    You will be absolutely amazed at the amount of information that is available that confirms and establishes that the men that framed our constitution and signed our Declaration of Independence, were seeking to base the constitution and the laws of the United States on the Bible and Christian Principles.

    The Prophecy of Tyre

    The Prophecy of Tyre

    About 2 1/2 to 3 years after the Lord predicted this prophecy against Tyre in 588 b.c., Nebuchadnezzar began his siege of Tyre. The way in which the Babylonians overcame a city was to surround it, cut off their food supply, and gradually starve the people into surrender. This was the method that Nebuchadnezzar used as he eventually overcame Jerusalem. The Babyloninas surrounded the city of Jerusalem, and cut off their food supply. When Jerusalm used up all of their food 2 years later, they became so hungry they were eating their own children, which incidentally the Lord had also also predicted. Jerusalem became so weakened by starvation that Nebuchadnezzar easily overcame the cityand took it captive.

    The city of Tyre was a completely different matter… Tyre was on the coast of the mediterranean sea. The walls of the city went all the way up to the sea completely cutting off Tyre from any land attack. As He had done with Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar cut off all of Tyre’s food and water supply on the mainland, but he could not cut off Tyre’s food supply from the sea because their Phoenician navy was so powerful. Tyre also had plenty of fresh water suppl. Archeologists have discovered an underground spring in the ruins of Tyre that produces over 10 million gallons of fresh water per day! The siege by Nebuchadnezzar over Tyre took 13 years.

    Signs of the Last Days, Christians Accepting Sin

    Signs of the Last Days, Christians Accepting Sin

    2Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

    After the recent news of Jennifer Knapp declaring that she was both gay and a Christian, the flood gates have opened and other Christian artists are following in their footsteps by declaring they are also gay. This morning I read an article in the liberal press New York Times describing singer Ray Bolt’s recent declaration that he has been struggling with his homosexuality for decades.
    There are a variety of sins that every human being struggles with throughout their life, this writer himself included. The entire purpose of Jesus coming to earth to take the body of a man and become one of us was to demonstrate that righteousness was possible, and that sin can be defeated and is always forgivable.

    Chuck Smith, Cancer, War in the Middle East, Great Opportunities

    Chuck Smith, Cancer, War in the Middle East, Great Opportunities

    Chuck Smith, 84, who is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, is undergoing treatment for lung cancer. However, he had no problem delivering a strong message of hope in a fallen world.

    “We’re on the verge of, it looks like, a war in the Middle East that could expand into a global conflict of nuclear proportions. The economy is tanking. Many nations are on the verge of bankruptcy and our own nation is so many trillions of dollars in debt. It’s just amazing,” he said.

    He began his talk on prophesy by quoting Bible verse Titus 2:13, which states, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.”

    “Surely there is a blessed hope that we have as believers,” Smith told those in attendance. “As far as the world is concerned there’s not much hope. When you look at the world that we live in today, the future doesn’t look very bright.”

  • 1 Trillion Euro Bailout for Europe, Signs of Antichrist

    1 Trillion Euro Bailout for Europe, Signs of Antichrist

    The recently announced bailout of Spain and several other european countries who are in a desperate financial crisis, is the next step up the ladder to the introduction of the coming antichrist.

    According to the old testament prophecies regarding the coming of the world leader who will emerge during a global financial crisis, that introduction may be just around the corner. This world leader will be seen as a “savior” of the financial catastrophe that the leading countries in Europe have gotten themselves into. He will come at first with a peace plan for Israel and the Arab nations. On the wings of peace, he will exalt himself to the position of God and command the world to worship him. He will be a great military leader who is able to unite the armies of the world together, to fight a combined effort during the “Battle of Armageddon”. This battle will take place north of Jerusalem in the Valley of Megiddo, where many other great battles of history have taken place.

    Signs of the Last Days: Arrested for Reading the Bible

    Signs of the Last Days: Arrested for Reading the Bible

    The video begins with Mark Mackey opening his Bible.

    “Good morning, everyone,” he says to a group of 15 onlookers waiting outside the Hemet California Division of Motor Vehicles. “I would like to read a little bit of the word of God this morning.”

    The video, shot in February of last year, ends with Mackey’s arrest.

    “You can preach on your own property,” an officer from the California Highway Patrol tells Mackey as he leads him away in handcuffs. “Folks, this is what the United States is coming to,” Mackey says to the crowd, who were standing outside waiting for the DMV to open. “You can talk about anything you want, but you can’t talk about the Bible.”

    Mackey is a reverend with Calvary Chapel Hemet, a conservative Christian church that practices an “evangelical ministry,” requiring public testimonials and Scripture readings.

    Church officials believe Mackey was arrested because of “Christian bigotry.”

    The officer who made the arrest disagrees, claiming he arrested Mackey for preaching to a public audience who had no choice but to listen.

    “You’re not allowed to preach here,” he told Mackey, “because this is a captive audience.”

    Not Everyone Who Says To Me, “Lord” Shall Enter

    Not Everyone Who Says To Me, “Lord” Shall Enter

    We live during a time in history where there are many who claim to know Jesus. More important than whether or not we know Jesus, does He know us? When Jesus returns to the earth to set up his kingdom that will last for one thousand years, there will me many who call out to him “Lord, Lord”, and Jesus will say to them “I never knew you…”

    Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, … And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you…

    Does Knowing The Truth Really Make Us Free?

    John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

    Recently on my Facebook page, I have made a fervent appeal to all those who are listed as “Friends”, to come to the aide of a young woman and her newborn son on Bantayan Island in the Philippines. Little “Gerard” was born with a condition called “hydroencephalitus”, or “water on the brain”, that causes pressure to build in the skull, and can cause death or brain damage. If this child can obtain surgery quickly, he can be rescued from death and lead a normal life. For less than $2,500.00 we can obtain the life saving surgery needed for little Gerard.

    Help Save Baby Gerard’s Life

    Help Save Baby Gerard’s Life

    Many of you who receive our daily updates on your Amazon Kindle, are aware of our ministry to the poor of Bantayan Island in the Philippines. About one year ago, my wife and I moved permanently to this location from the United States in order to ministry to the needs of these desperate people.

    As we have become more acquainted with the dear people in our little village where we live, our lives have become intertwined and knit together day by day.

    A young mother next door to our home, has a new baby boy named “Gerard” who was born with a condition called “hydroencephalitus”, or “Water on the Brain”. This condition places pressure on the brain and can cause death or severe brain damage.

    If we can obtain surgery for baby Gerard this next week, a “shunt” can be place in his brain that will drain the fluid and release the pressure on his brain. Gerard can then lead a normal life and grown up healthy and strong.

  • World Financial Markets in Collapse, Preparations for the Antichrist

    World Financial Markets in Collapse, Preparations for the Antichrist

    On Wednesday, the United States stock market plummeted 389 point, or a 3.2% drop in value, after recent news of Europe’s financial crisis was announced. Italy, one of the largest economies in Europe, is also experiencing major debt problems, adding to the list of other European nations in major financial difficulties.

    According to experts, Italy has a public debt of over 2.5 Trillion, or 120 percent of their Gross Domestic Product. There is wide spread fear that Italy will also not be able to meet their financial commitments. Greece, Ireland and Portugal have already experienced similar financial problems, thought their economies are much smaller.

    Italy is a major player in the European economy because so many different banks hold’s their debt, and because their debt level is so high. All of the combined abilities of banks in Europe, do not have the capacity to bail out Italy from her debt pinnacle , making for a frightening scenario in the future.

    Daily Walk: To Have the Ear of God

    Daily Walk: To Have the Ear of God

    Psalms 41:1-3 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.

    To have the ear of God and experience His moving in, and upon your life whenever you have a need. What is is that moves God’s heart and brings Him to our aid? David wrote in Psalm 41 that when we take notice of and consider the poor that are amongst us, the heart of God is stirred to bless our life.

  • The Return of Jesus and the Acceptance of Sin

    The Return of Jesus and the Acceptance of Sin

    As we approach the return of Jesus for His church, world-wide the acceptance of sin is increasing dramatically. Young people who claim that they love Jesus, yet live together in the same home without being married to each other. Men and women who claim to be Christians, yet live in a homosexual or lesbian relationship.

    Rather than offend those who live in these lifestyles, Christians say nothing, hiding behind the phrase “I just love them and accept them the way they are…”

    Jesus said that when we accept the sin of a confessing follower of him and say nothing about it, that he will hold us accountable for our indecisiveness.

    The Blessedness of Simplicity

    After nearly six grueling months in the States, we have finally returned to Bantayan Island where life has taken a soft slumber reminiscent of village life in the Philippines one hundred years ago.

    The sale of our home completed, we packed up our few belongings and made the 20-hour journey to our tiny seven by ten mile island atol that is to be our new permanent home. I am writing to you today from our small rental home along the shores of Santa Fe Beach, on Bantayan Island.
