Roy’s Blog: “Where?”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5557

Matthew 19:22 “When the young man heard this [sell all you have and give to the poor] he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.”

Many fans are so concerned about where Aaron Rodgers will play quarterback next year, or if he will play at all. He played for the Green Bay Packers for many years. Others are caught up in Tom Brady as quarterback for the Buccaneers and will he play another year or retire.

I know sports means a lot to millions of people around the world, and I must admit, I like football. But whether either one ever plays again or there is ever another game played is not the biggest question on my mind. The big question is not where you will be next season or the next, but where will you spend eternity. Every player, every fan needs to settle that question in their minds and hearts. It is so much more important. Where they line up to hike the ball is not as important as where they will spend eternity.

Ultimately all the millions of dollars made and all the fame, the thrill of winning the game will not matter in the end. Just as the rich young ruler had power, money and land (he was a good man, a good ruler, and even gave to the poor), but because he wasn’t willing to let go of everything and follow Jesus Christ, he went away sorrowful…and lost.

Don’t miss heaven for the world!

Roy’s Blog: “Blind Leading The Blind”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5551

2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

There is an old saying that goes way back, “When the blind lead the blind, they will both fall into the ditch.”

A few days ago, I saw a woman who was blind. She was dressed nice and was out and about shopping and just enjoying the warm day. But there was one thing that stood out about her. Her loving husband was right beside her guiding her every step. I can imagine he was describing things along the way so she could enjoy them too.

Today masses of people are blinded by the demonic forces in the world. The difference is they have no guide. The people they follow are just as blinded by Satan as they are. Everything we see today from the transportation system to the lawlessness in our streets to the inflation affecting everyone’s pocketbook, they claim they didn’t see it coming!

My question is…why not? How in the world did they not see and know that certain actions have reactions? Obviously, they don’t read the history books. Yet the masses have followed along like a blind person.

The Rapture is coming soon, but they don’t see that either. Read the Bible and pray–for your family, your friends, America!

Roy’s Blog: “Conflict Erupting”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5546

Matthew 24:6 “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars: but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

“Rumors of war” have been very common since the end of World War II. If you are old enough to remember the “Cuban Missile Crisis”, that was definitely a stressful time. Then the Vietnam War, where thousands of Americans lost their lives, was a terrible time which tore at the heart of America like nothing I have ever seen.

Bad times. But rarely have I seen the prospect of several high-profile conflicts erupting at the same time. China threatens on a daily basis to invade Taiwan. They fly airspace incursions against Taiwan almost daily. But one of the most telling things I see is China hoarding food in order to counter a response from the West. It tells us China is preparing for a full invasion.

Also, the NATO-Russian dispute over Ukraine continues to heat up with stronger comments from NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and Russia towards an ultimate outright conflict.

And let’s not forget in all the uproar over these two, Iran continues to push the threat of conflict between them and virtually anyone who stands in their way of destroying Israel and setting up a caliphate that rules the entire Middle East. Wars and “rumors of war”. The signs are all around us.

Matthew 24:33 “So likewise ye, when ye see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door.”

Roy’s Blog: “The Nightmare”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5542

Revelation 13:16-17 “He causes all both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads: And that no one may buy or sell except the one who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.”

It’s hard for us (especially in America) to imagine a world where the government controls everything about your present and your future. It would control your finances, whether you work or not and where; how you spend your money or if you even can. You would not be free to move to or visit another city or state (they’ve already tried to block people from this in California to some extent).

Take bitcoin today: the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) would be entirely digital, thus ending the use of cash money. The countries that have progressed the furthest are China and the United Kingdom. But other countries are not far behind, including New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and Malaysia. Don’t think for a moment that this is not in the plans of our Federal Reserve to create a central bank digital currency or CBDC. Can you imagine the POWER and CONTROL this would give government on “all spending in real time”?

When the government makes sure you can only use your “money” in what they consider “sensible things” and not used in “socially harmful things”, the words freedom and constitution will no longer apply to our country. You don’t need much imagination to see how this would transform society into a dystopian nightmare.

Roy’s Blog: “Never a Holiday”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5537

I John 4:4 “You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”

Evil never takes a holiday. The conditions in our world never stop or even slow down. Big things are under way.

The Arabian Peninsula was attacked by the Iranian backed Houthis in Yemen in the United Arab Emirates. They launched nearly two dozen explosive laden drones and close to a dozen ballistic missiles resulting in the destruction of multiple oil tanks in Abu Dhabi. The Houthis are now threatening the tallest skyscraper in the world located also in Abu Dhabi, UAE. You can expect oil prices to increase even more.

On the Russian front: Russia has all but invaded its neighbor, Ukraine. With every passing day they are moving toward a full takeover. On the flip side, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States are finally showing increased support for Ukraine. The U.S. is mulling over the idea of deploying troops to Ukraine, while the UK and Canada already deployed some troops and sent multiple C-17 cargo planes full of weapons and anti-tank missiles.

Evil never rests, never takes a holiday. But…greater is our God than all the evil Satan can throw at us. Stand firm, washed by the blood of Jesus Christ, for greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world!

Roy’s Blog: “Coming Home To Roost”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5532

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

The “chickens are coming home to roost”. It’s a saying anyone raised in the country has probably heard. Chickens are creatures of habit. They may wander off looking for food, but when night approaches they make their way back to their roosting place, whether a stand of trees near the house, or their chicken coop.

This is what it says in Proverbs. If you train your children right, they will come back to it. They may wander off for a while, but they will come home. But we are seeing what happens in society when children are left without the training they need. They have no guiding principles that bring them back to where they should be…in a right relationship with the Lord. They are adrift and in danger from predators (Satanic forces).

Too many parents expected the schools to properly train their children, and to some extent they did a long time ago. But we took God out of the schoolhouse, and even teachers who would have taught godly principles were banned from doing so. Where did that leave children…abandoned with no godly leadership. Instead, we’ve thrown billions of dollars into the educational system and have little to show for it. We spend more money per child for education than any industrialized nation in the world, and yet we rank somewhere in the thirty percent for educational success among those nations.

Because of our lack of action on training our children to be good upstanding, god-fearing, patriotic adults, the “chickens are coming home to roost”. (We are seeing the results of our inaction.)

What is the answer? Put God back in our homes. Train our children how to act before they go to school! Then put God back in the school to help support that training.

Roy’s Blog: “The Jab or Else”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5528

Daniel 7:7b “…A fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

Here is the choice in Europe’s vaccine mandate: get the jab or lose your rights. It’s hard to imagine that in Europe, Canada, and Australia people are losing their right to go to the store, a movie, or even walk out of their homes. And there is no end date in site. Even here in the United States there is talk of banning the UNVACCINATED from society. And, to enforce this, federal National Guard troops have been sent out by the Biden Administration (supposedly to help with administering the vaccine) to all the continental states.

We are moving toward a new system of mass surveillance and control. A digital QR Code on your phone will grant access to everyday things in life, entertainment, shopping, restaurants, medical assistance. And it’s completely attached to your “vaccination” status. This is only the beginning. Soon it will encompass your taxes and bank information and your medical records. (Ever read the book 1984?) The government will be totally in control of your life, health, finances.

Everything in dealing with Co Vid is free from the government (our tax money). But everyone is falling into the control of the government is every area of life. The model being used is like the “social credit system” in… CHINA! Make no mistake–you are being prepared for the New World Order, like it or not.

Roy’s Blog: “Brace For Impact”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5522

Revelation 6:6 “And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not damage the oil and wine.”

Time is running out on the false reality in which most Americans are living today. We have a leaky supply chain that is like a water pipe about to break. Most of us have experienced a burst pipe or hot water heater that bit the dust in the night. You wake up, step out of bed into several inches of water. It’s not just the pipe or water heater that needs fixed but all the damage the water did has to be addressed.

From ports closing in China that ship 60% of the merchandise bought in the world, including the United States and Europe, to trucking companies that can’t find drivers we are headed for a terrible impact. Now, you can add looters who are pulling merchandise out of rail cars, taking what they want and dumping the rest on the tracks. (That must be where my order went.) Even if merchandise gets to our ports, it has to be delivered by rail and/or truck to get to you or the stores where you shop. We have a grave problem, and the worst impact has not hit us…yet.

With China locking down its ports, California enacting such stringent laws on trucks and truck drivers picking up merchandise from their port cities, we are going to see more shortages of goods on the shelves, from food to medicine, medical supplies to other necessary items. The impact is going to hurt!

Roy’s Blog: “The Image Of God”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5517

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them.”

The headlines in America are changing fast and not for the better. According to the Pew Research Center, now only 37% of American adults, with a religious affiliation, believe society is better off if “people make marriage and having children a priority”. While 64% believe society is “just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children”.

Among those who claim no religious affiliation, 16% say society is better off with people prioritizing marriage and children, while 82% believe society is just as well off with other priorities. We see more and more people who do not want marriage, but they will live as man and wife, don’t want children but have dogs and cats they treat like children, even calling them their babies, complete with toys, grooming, even insurance (and carrying them to the grocery store with them).

They have replaced God’s design for the family unit: one man, one woman who unite to raise the next generation. Denial of that plan, destruction of the family unit, leads to destruction of society and eventually to chaos and downfall of the country.

God’s plan. The family unit: one man…one woman…blessed with children, designed in the image of God by God.

Roy’s Blog: “The Destruction Of America”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5512

Daniel 2:42 “As the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdom [of the Antichrist] will be strong and part of it will be brittle.”

It has been revealed that the “Pretrial Services Agency” for the District of Columbia has a policy which will likely serve as a model for a government push to assemble lists of American who object to the Covid-19 “vaccine” on religious grounds. This is likely being used to stealthily test a policy it intends to roll out across the whole U.S. government.

Another shocking trend destroying America is foreign investment in America’s richest farmland. These investors currently own over thirty million acres of prime American farmland.

China holds: 65% of the world’s maize (corn); 61% of the world’s rice; 51% of the world’s wheat; and 37% of the world’s soybeans.

At the same time a Hong Kong company has acquired Smithfield Meats, the largest pork producers in the United States. The trend in America is leading us to the creation of a Chinese-owned agricultural land monopoly. In other words: “China is eating our lunch” as they buy up American farmland and invest in thousands of American companies. We are being “owned” by a communist nation, and we will soon have no choice but to submit to a “New World Order”.
