Roy’s Blog: “The Third Temple”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4795(opens in a new tab)

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “No one is to deceive you in any way! For it will not come unless the apostacy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”

Prophecy about the Tribulation and the “man of sin”, predicts a third temple in Jerusalem will be built at the time of the end. In 2018 during the mayoral race in Jerusalem, the reestablished Sanhedrin sent running candidates Ofer Berkovitch and Moshe Leon a letter requesting they reveal their plans to rebuild the temple.

Can you imagine what that would do? I believe a new rebuilt temple, in Jerusalem, will be a part of the seven year covenant with the Antichrist. This occurs after the war described in Ezekiel 38 completely silences the Muslim world, after God destroys the armies of Russia, Turkey, Iran, and others who come up to take a spoil in Israel.

But, when you read of letters being sent to political leaders back in 2018, when a rail line has been built from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and now extended all the way to the Wester Wall to handle thousands of people a day, you know the Third Temple can’t be far behind. Where does this put us? On our way very soon to the return of Jesus Christ and the Rapture of the church. Get ready. It WILL happen! God said it and He keeps His promises!

II Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Today America is preparing for the Antichrist with a Godless mindset. It’s hard to imagine this happening anywhere, much less America, a country founded on Godly principles.

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times and Yahoo News headlined, “Why America’s Record Godlessness Is Good News for the Nation.” In part, it reads, “The secularization of US society, the waning of religious faith, practice and affiliation, is continuing at a dramatic and unprecedented pace. While many may consider such a development as a cause for concern, such a worry is not warranted. This increasing godlessness in America is actually a good thing, to be welcomed and embraced.”

That is crazy. Actually it is more evil, a demonic influence that has swept through our nation. Recently, Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) proclaimed that “God’s will was of no concern to this Congress.”

When this mindset comes out in view for all to see and hear, the consequences will not be far behind. Dearly Beloved, PRAY for America to WAKE UP to God Almighty!

Roy’s Blog: “Secret Agents”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4787(opens in a new tab)

Acts 27:23 (NIV) “Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me.”

It is a whisper thin veil that separates the natural from the supernatural. Whether you realize it or not, divine activity is all around us. The book of Hebrews says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:14 NIV)

Angels played a role in the Garden of Eden. They played a role in Abraham and Daniel’s lives as well. Jesus birth was announced by the heralding angel Gabriel. Numerous times during His short time on earth, angels cared for Him, even to announcing His resurrection.

Angels are God’s “secret agents“, created by Him to worship and assist Him in His plan and purposes, all to the glory of God.

They also work to fulfil God’s purpose and plan in your life. Each person who will inherit salvation has a guardian angel, sent to assist and care for that person. I think sometimes mine must be working overtime. Can you imagine someday being escorted by the angels into the very presence of God? You are never alone, in this world, or on the journey to the next.

Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the “abomination of desolation” which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place let the reader understand.”

After illegal Jordanian occupation that lasted from 1948 to 1967, Israel took control of the Temple Mount when it unified Jerusalem during the Six-day War. For the first time in modern history the Temple Mount was in Israel’s hands. Then Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan, in a gesture intended to help keep the peace, decided to allow the Muslim Waqf to maintain control over the Temple Mount.

Dayan’s surrender of oversite of the Temple Mount has been criticized bitterly over the years because it allowed the Muslim religious authorities to restrict Jewish and Christian visitation to the Temple Mount as well as prayer and religious symbols to be displayed. Every Jewish administration has followed those restrictions until now.

The new Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, mandated the security forces and police must “maintain freedom of worship for Jews at the sacred site on the Temple Mount.” This is an eye-opener! Changes are continuing to happen in Israel are the surrounding countries.

Keep your eyes open and your ears tuned so that you will understand when you read the prophecies in the Bible.

Matthew 24:44 “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.”

Everywhere I look around the globe, I see unrest. From people in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas I see people demonstrating, looting, burning, and crying out for change and governments struggling to quell the unrest.

What does it all mean? Why are these things happening? They all point to just how close we are to the rise of the man of sin (the Antichrist) and the global government that will bring false hope to a world in darkness. They will accept it hoping for a fix to the global unrest.

Also, I see how near we are to the “Blessed Hope” of the Bride of Christ. The Rapture! The voice of hope is calling out our names with love and comfort. Jesus said, “Let not your hearts be troubled.” “I’m coming, I’m coming soon!”

Even so Lord Jesus, come!

Today is my birthday. Could today be that day? What a birthday present!

Matthew 24:6a,8 “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

There is, reportedly, a video circulating among Chinese Communist Party channels threatening to unleash a “continuous” nuclear war on the world. The statement threatens, “When we liberate Taiwan, if Japan dares to intervene by force, even if it only deploys one soldier, one plane, and only one ship, we will not only return reciprocal fire but also start a full-scale war against Japan.”

In another article it is reported, China is building 120 new silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), sparking concerns of a Taiwan related conflict between China and the United States.

The “second seal” of Revelation 6:4b says, “…it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another, and a great sword was given unto him.”

Jesus said, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.” Matthew 24:6

If you’ve ever headed to El Paso, Texas at night, you can see the light and say “we’re almost to El Paso”…then an hour later you can still see the lights, but you’re not there quite yet. Another hour later the fringes of the town are finally in sight.

With all the things happening today, this is not the end…but get ready. The end is IN SIGHT!

Roy’s Blog: “What’s Going On”

Matthew 24: 8 “All these are the beginnings of birth pains.”

What’s going on? What are we experiencing today? “Birth pains” before the end times described in the Bible.

Extreme weather events are getting worse. One area of the world is hot and very dry, while other areas are flooding with unusually cool weather. This morning July 20th, in East Texas, it was 68 degrees. In July! In the United States we have a massive drought in several western states. They are having to remove boats out of harbors where they are stored in certain areas because there is not enough water to support them. While in the northeast there is flooding due to the abundance of rain. Parts of the country are having unseasonable cool weather while others are sweltering under unusually hot weather. I can’t imagine 120-140 degree temperatures.

But, it’s not just in the US; it is around the globe. Germany and China have record flooding, while in Australia and Russia have extreme heat waves and drought.

All these extreme weather conditions are attributed to “global warming” or what they now call “climate change”. They want to say it’s man causing these things by their “carbon footprint”–their use of fossil fuels. But Jesus said that calamitous events would come as a warning sign of the last days. They would get worse over time, like a woman having birth pains. This is what’s going on in the world. This is what we are experiencing. So…be warned. The Rapture could come at any time.

You are warned so you have time to get ready!

Roy’s Blog: “Uncharted Waters”

Psalm 91:1-2 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

The world is in crisis unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetime and it’s steadily getting worse. Wild extremes in weather with record breaking temperatures, floods, disease, and volcanic activity…the list goes on and on. Are you surprised? If you read the Bible, you shouldn’t be. It is all outlined within the pages from Genesis to Revelation. It even tells you how to avoid the final outcome. (John 3:16)

Salt and light are so desperately needed in this world lost to sin. Paul wrote long ago, “There will be terrible times in the last days.” Uncharted waters on every side. For many–nowhere to turn for solace. But Paul also offered these eloquent words of encouragement during these trying days, “The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5b,6-7)

Roy’s Blog: “A Sad Day”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4763(opens in a new tab)

Lamentations 3:40 “Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the Lord.”

This Sunday is considered the saddest day on the Hebrew calendar, Tish B’Av (the ninth of Av) is a day of fasting and mourning because of the five events which took place (in different years) on this day.

  1. The twelve spies that Moses sent to spy out the Promised Land returned ten of whom balked at entering the land because they feared the giants there. This led to forty years of Israel wandering in the wilderness.
  2. The First Temple, built by Solomon, was destroyed by Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC. The surviving population was then sent into exile.
  3. The Second Temple, built by Zerubbabel and expanded by Herod the Great, was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.
  4. At the same time Jerusalem was utterly destroyed.
  5. The Great Bar Kokhba Revolt by the Jews was crushed in 135 AD, by the Roman General Sextus Julius Severus. The rebellion led to Emperor Hadrian changing Judea’s name to Syria Palestina and Jerusalem to Pelia Capitolina.

The GOOD news is, God never forgets His promises and His people! Even when things are at their darkest. God remembers.

After all those dark centuries when the Israelites were scattered with no homeland, they now have their home, their nation…Israel, and their capital is Jerusalem! Praise the Lord!

God is true to His word, even for America, “If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Roy’s Blog: “Get Ready”

2 Thessalonians 2:6 “You know shat restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.”

Get ready! More is coming. We may soon see “climate lockdowns”. Now we have the lockdown model, the globalists Marxists will use it. If they can mandate national face mask use and virus restrictions, they can shut everything down for “climate emergencies” which they refer to as an “existential threat.”

Throughout our land from cars, to power plants, to thermo-states, and more, government mandates are controlling every facet in their move toward the worldwide “reset”. We will be seeing a new lockdown to “save the climate’. One hint that I heard mentioned is that children are “climate disasters”. (Less babies born–less people to pollute the earth). Which the Biden administration is set to cure by the United States tax dollars going to pay for abortions around the world. Don’t say no way. He’s already proposed exactly that.

Think for a moment…if our government declared a national climate emergency, the powers that be would be unleashed to control every aspect of our lives. you would not be free to move about as you want, your water usage would be controlled, your power would be regulated to how much they think you should use (heat and air would be adjusted by them), and your food consumption would be controlled. Is this the reason the United Nations has been invited by a member of our government to monitor the United States? Remember the UN has a global army. (BAD decision on America’s part…very bad!)

We are only a pen stroke away from these changes. Get ready!
