Roy’s Blog: “Can Never Be Lost”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7292

John 10:27-28 (NASB) “My sheep hear My voice and I know them; and they follow me, and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”

We can all see and hear of plenty of problems, and more are added every day. From inflation that is devastating our paychecks, to open borders that are crippling our society and endangering people with drugs, disease, and violence. Now we have Chinese spy balloons invading our airspace. (Don’t believe their adamant suggestion that it was a weather balloon that strayed off course.) We shot it down, yes, but way after it sent all its information back to China.

I know we can’t fix all the problems in the world (or even in our own lives), but my question to you today is, “If you could change anything in your life, what would it be?” Do you feel that something isn’t quite right in your life, but you don’t know what? You don’t know what’s missing? You can’t put your finger on it, but you can’t put it behind you either?

Changing your circumstances can sometimes feel like a solution, for a while. But it doesn’t change that empty feeling. That emptiness in your soul can only be filled by a relationship with Jesus Christ. Don’t keep reaching for the world which will wither and fade away. Reach out to Jesus and He will fill your life with the peace and joy that can never be taken away.

Roy’s Blog: “The Catalyst”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?=7289

Psalms 2:1-2a (NASB) “Why are the nations in an uproar and the people devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord…”

Although the “World Economic Forum” (WEF) strives to dress up its image, it’s like putting lipstick on a pig…it’s still a pig. The WEF along with other entities and individuals like the WHO (World Health Organization), Rockefeller Foundation, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and George Soros have an agenda, an evil scheme to unleash unprecedented chaos on all of humanity.

Their plan for us (the common people) is poverty, starvation, and death all in the name of “saving the planet” via the “Green New Deal” and other deceptive plots. They want to lower the population of the earth. They tout that the world can’t support the number of people on it, so in their “thinking” it has to be lowered. How? Examples: Push abortion on demand; a pandemic to kill as many as possible; withhold life-saving drugs; slowly get rid of the food supply, and means of staying warm; blackouts, and increased unemployment.

Elon Musk stated on January 18, 2023, “The WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want.”

The “catalyst” to bring about the “Great Tribulation” is here. And they will continue to work on it because no one is telling them NO!

Roy’s Blog: “A Nightmare”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7284

Daniel 2:40 (NASB) “Then there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron crushes and shatters all things, so, like iron that breaks in pieces, it will crush and break all these in pieces.”

The “Green Agenda” has never been about science or the environment. It is about “green” money, power, and creating a “New World Order”. Which is the “Fourth Kingdom” described in Daniel. A “nightmare” our world could never have imagined.

Why would scientists and governments promote the toxin lithium (for batteries) as a “green alternative” while seeking to control and bury CO2, a clear innocuous non-pollutant that makes plants grow and allows the world to be fed? The world has many people who don’t have enough food to eat, yet these scientists (globalists) want to divert food products into fuel (ethanol) which is not good for the environment. We have plenty of oil but not enough food, so why is Goodyear using soybeans and corn to make tires?

The answer is the “Green Agenda”. It has set out to destroy oil companies (this will include any company or business that uses oil or gas to make everyday items. I could give you a list of over one hundred including the coat you are wearing to keep warm.) They are determined to force this “New World Order” on us whether we like it or not!

The “Rapture” is signless. No announcements beforehand, no “okay, get ready, it’s coming”. It will come “when you think not” in the “twinkling of an eye”. But, the “Tribulation” is not signless. We’ve been given all the signs to watch for, and everything I see points to that “Reset” that ushers in the antichrist…and the Tribulation to follow! That means the Rapture must be very near.

Roy’s Blog: “Enemy Territory”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7280

I Peter 5:8 (NASB) “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

We are in “enemy-occupied territory”. That is what this world is. You and I are caught in the middle of a spiritual battlefield whether we realize it or not. The age-old war has profound effects on the world in which we live. From individual struggles with the powers of darkness in your own life to international struggles against sin and chaos, there is a war being waged around us. Some may think they live on a “playground”, but it’s actually a “battleground.”

The worst thing we can do is ignore the raging war…deny its reality. We need the “Full Armor of God” to protect us at all times. The battle is all around us, but, “Greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world.” (I John 4:4) Though we are weak and sinful, through Christ we have everything we need to combat any forces in our lives contrary to God. Forgiven through the blood of Jesus, we can stand the trials and struggles of life and come out victorious. He is our Lord and Savior and in Him, we have the power to resist the devil and his tricks.

You have been rescued from the power of the enemy. You have gone from darkness to light. You are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption.

Even in “enemy territory” we are safe because “He will never leave you or forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

Roy’s Blog: “Triumph”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7276

I Corinthians 2:7-8a (NASB) “But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery; the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood…”

I have good news and bad news. The bad news first? The powers of darkness in our world, the evil and demonic plans of the world’s globalists will appear to succeed…for a while. But their celebration will be short-lived.

The good news for those of us in Christ Jesus is twofold. First, the Lord says that the Rapture will occur before He pours out His wrath on the world during the time that the antichrist rules. Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth.”

Second, our world is soon headed toward the “Glorious Appearing” of Jesus Christ with the armies of heaven. Revelation 19:11,14 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, He judges and wages war. (v14) And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.”

The evil darkness of today will soon come to an end with the glorious coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Such hope brightens our day despite the foreboding shadows of evil that surround us at the approaching realm of the antichrist. The triumph of the redeemed through Jesus Christ is imminent and that calms our fears.

Roy’s Blog: “The Lord Hears”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7272

Exodus 3:7 (NASB) “The Lord said, ‘I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings.’”

God saw the distress of His people and acted to deliver them from Egypt. After forty years tending sheep in the wilderness, Moses was fully prepared to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. The long suffering slaves were ready to follow the leader God would send to them. The Lord knew the time was right.

God hears our prayers and groanings today. Multitudes of “believers” face martyrdom and persecution for their faith. While many others suffer from relentless attacks from the dark powers of the evil one every day due to their faith in Jesus Christ. And, like the ancient Israelites, we groan in our despair. Paul declared in Romans 8:23 “We groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.”

The Lord hears the cry of our hearts as we long for Him to appear and take us up with Him to glory! Someday soon our faith will be rewarded. The Lord is not distant. He hears, sees, and feels our grief, and He will surely deliver us.

Roy’s Blog: “Globalization”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7267

Revelation 6:2 (NASB) “I looked, and behold, a white horse and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”

It has been reported by an historian speaker at the WEF (World Economic Forum) meeting in Davos last week that globalization (world government) is here to stay, and the “notion of de-globalization” is a mirage. Another speaker, the CEO of a German tech company, said the world is merely entering into the next phase of globalization.

Globalists have been advancing globalism for many years. They have just done it a little at a time. Let the world get used to one step, then proceed to the next. They have planned phases and a timeline. Right now, that timeline is 2030, seven years from now.

Why should you care? How does that affect you?

*Globalization calls for a fundamental change is how nations, including America, govern the people of that nation. They would not have autonomy (as America does now), a constitution (that differs from the world governing body), or freedom to act on their own. Papers would be signed (possibly by this administration) giving the okay for this to happen.

*Globalization is a sign that the Rapture (calling away of the body of Christ–the Church) and the second coming of Christ are close.

*Globalization will morph into the seven-year tribulation under the satanic leadership of antichrist and promotion of the “false prophet”.

The masses today are caught up in a “strong delusion” that will turn eventually into a “hell on earth” for those left behind at the Rapture. The signs are there…and all is proceeding as the globalists (and the elite) have planned.

On January 17th, 2023, Elon Musk, billionaire entrepreneur, said the WEFs “Environmental and Social Governance” agenda is satanic.

Biblically speaking the ESG (Environmental and Social Governance) is satanic. It is designed to control every phase of life–what you eat, wear, buy, where you travel, live, visit, or IF you are allowed to do so. In effect it is the same purpose as the “Mark of the Beast” during the tribulation. And it will lead to a godless world government.

Will it affect you? It already has whether you realize it or not, and it will only get worse.

Get ready!

Roy’s Blog: “Escalation”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7264

I John 2:18 (NASB) “Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.”

We are quickly moving toward a much larger war than just Ukraine and Russia. We also see significant escalation in the Baltic Sea which is Russia’s main sea route. Estonia’s Foreign Minister has announced he will work with Finland to close the Gulf of Finland to the Russians. According to all the doctrines of war, this is a “casus belli”, a justified reason to declare a war.

Now the United States has officially informed Ukraine it will send thirty-one A-1 Abrams tanks, which paved the way for Germany to agree to send their Leopard 2 tanks. This also gives the go-ahead for other countries to send their Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, and some older T-2 tanks that were already promised to be delivered.

Meanwhile Russian propaganda channels call for the delivery of nuclear weapons to Iran in order to wipe Israel off the map, stating that it is “because of the western supply of tanks to Ukraine.”

Now I read where the spokesman of the Ukrainian Air Force announced that infrastructure work has begun at the military airports so they can handle F-16s landing and taking off, escalating the war even more, because you know the next plea will be for planes to carry the fighting into Russia.

If you are not ready for the last days, that last hour, now is the time to get ready. Trust Jesus Christ as your Savior and follow Him, before that last strike of the clock!

Roy’s Blog: “Light in the Darkness”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7261

Joel 2:28-29 (NASB) And it will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your old men will dream dreams and your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants, I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”

Today in Muslim regions of our world, “Light” is dawning on those in darkness, through the giving of dreams and visions. Have you ever had a dream of a “shining divine figure?” It turns out that multitudes of Muslims in over a dozen Muslim nations are having such dreams and visions. From Jordan all the way east to Iran and beyond, some estimate the number of such dreams in the millions over the last few decades.

Jesus (“Yeshua” in Arabic) is being miraculously and sovereignly revealed in dreams and visions to men and women living in lands covered by the shadow of death. Lands where people cry out under the cruel masters of Islam. These often-recurring dreams at times will lead the dreamer on a path toward discovering peace and faith in the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

That is wonderful, yet many have been martyred because they moved away from the “Darkness of Islam” to the “Light of Jesus Christ”. Those who are searching will find what they seek in Him.

“For you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.” Psalms 9:10 (NLT)

Roy’s Blog: “Eternal Security”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7257

I John 5:13 (NASB) “These things I have written to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.”

Today every human institution feels insecure. Do you trust your government? Do you trust the banking institutions? The stock markets? There are failures in these institutions all the time, and they are mounting. Where will food prices go in the next few months? You have to eat. How are you going to afford to put quality food on the table?

As you total everything up, where do you find peace? Where is your security? You lock your car, lock the doors of your house, but does that guarantee security? Not from what I’ve seen going on in the world.

Economic, military, medical, psychological, and educational upheavals are shaking our world to the core. They hold no guarantees of security. But God stays firm. He does not change. His Word does not change. He rules in love. He always keeps His promises. He never fails. Even your body will one day fail you. But if you are in Him, you stand in ETERNAL security!

Every generation faces uncertainties. But what this generation faces is unique in a hundred different ways. More than ever, we need to remember and rely on the assurance found in our Lord Jesus Christ. In Him you can have perfect peace and security no matter what the storms of life are raging around you.

Then, you can sing, “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine. Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!”
