Roy’s Blog: “One Anchor”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6269

Ephesians 5:14 “Awake sleeper and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

I remember years ago as a kid I would walk in my sleep once in a while. My mother would come and wake me up and lead me back to my room. But, I don’t think I ever really woke up. When told the next day what I did I couldn’t believe it. I was astonished.

I think I would feel that same astonishment today if I had gone to sleep (like Rip van Winkle) even ten years ago and woke up today. Wow, how things have changed. Changes in past generations were slow, a progression you could track. Today you wake up in a new world every day. Things happen so fast, I’ll write a blog for the next morning and before it’s entered, things have changed.

But that also is one of the ways the Bible says it will be in the last days. “So fast your head will swim.” Amos 19:13 (Message).

Praise the Lord there is One Anchor that I can hold on to and that is Jesus Christ. Hebrew 13:8 “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever.”

He says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrew 13:5b)

Roy’s Blog: “Enemy Number One”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6264

John 15:18 (NLT) “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first.”

Two trends are unfolding in the United States right now. First is the explosion of the horrendous targeting of America’s children. They are being “sexualized” at very young ages and seduced into the world of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgical amputation of healthy body parts. Teens and even younger children have already been targeted for drug use, and both of these things lead to increasing suicide rates later on.

Amazingly this celebration of transgenderism is being praised and funded by the White House and through big businesses like Disney and major universities like Harvard. And now the elite leaders of our nation gush over “pride month” in every aspect of society. This is only a means to an end which is the destruction of Bible-believing Christianity in America. That is the elites’ “Enemy Number One” and is the second trend.

For example: *”White Christian Nationalism, ‘Is A Fundamental Threat to Democracy'”, NY Magazine.

*”How Christian Nationalism Paved the Way For January 6″, Religion News Service.

*”Chrisitan Nationalism on the Rise in Some GOP campaigns,” AP wire service

*”The View Co-host blames ‘Christian Nationalism’ for mass shootings,” FoxNews.com

*”It is becoming increasingly clear that the U.S. is under siege by Christian fundamentalists and traditionalists,” warns MSNBC’s Ja’han Jones.

*”If Christian Nationalism isn’t essentially domestic terrorism, then I don’t know what is,” opines Cari Marshall of Texas Democracy Foundation.

*Late author Angelo Codevillas declares, “Christians are terrorists–the American Taliban.”

Make no mistake about it, Bible-believing followers of Jesus Christ–Christians– are the ENEMY NUMBER ONE to the elites of our society. And it is not just “White Christian Nationalists” it includes Christians of every color and nationality.

Roy’s Blog: “Not A Coincidence”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6259

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

Is it a coincidence that 97 fires have destroyed or damaged food processing plants in the United States just since Biden’s election? That is a lot of “accidents”. Approximately twenty have been totally destroyed with over seventy severely damaged. It certainly looks suspicious even though the causes were deemed as just different accidents from wiring or some other “bad luck”. Whatever the cause, all these “accidents” are hurting our food supply. From Poultry plants that supplied a huge number of eggs to their area, to other food production types. And it’s not just the fires that are disrupting the food supply. What about the plant that was shut down for months and months causing a shortage of baby formula.

There won’t only be a shortage soon of food items, they are already going sky-high in prices. In Kansas, one natural occurrence where thousands of cattle died this month due so the “experts say” to extreme heat. I have doubts about that explanation. And now I read that hundreds of sheep “mysteriously” died in Idaho, from lightning. I don’t think this is all coincidence.

I believe it is all part of a demonic plan to transform America. From the energy shortages to food shortages to inflation (which didn’t pop up out of thin air but was created by the government flooding the country with low-interest rates and plenty of ‘free cash”), these things have decimated our country. It’s not a coincidence.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Bill Gates has bought up over 200,000 acres of prime farming land and has tried to buy a large part of the ranching land in one of the northern states. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that China has bought over 200,000 acres of prime farming land either.

It’s too much to be a coincidence! America is being brought down little by little.

Roy’s Blog: “Paper Peace”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6254

Daniel 9:27a (NASB) “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week [7 years] but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offerings…”

Barely twenty years ago the “Budapest Memorandum” was signed in which Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom pledged to refrain from threatening or using military force or economic coercion against Ukraine if the country gave up its nuclear weapons. They also pledged, among other things, to respect Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty according to its then current borders.

Of course, since then, Russia violated the memorandum by the 2014 annexation of Crimea, and now in 2022 the invasion and pretty much annihilation of Ukraine. The memorandum is a stark failure. The lesson is that “international agreements” are unreliable, and future support for the conditions stated in the agreement is not worth the paper they are written on. Ukraine made real sacrifices for the fanciful Western ideal of denuclearization, but the deal was made and Ukraine was hung out to dry.

Extending the scope of the analysis, the United States and Europe have insisted Israel make similar dangerous concessions for a “paper peace” with bellicose neighbors. Make no mistake, this is exactly what the antichrist will someday get Israel to do. They will sign a “Paper Peace” that has all kinds of promises, but those promises will all be broken.

Roy’s Blog: “Reality”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6251

John 16:33b (NASB) “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

What’s going on in our administration is an embarrassment and not just to the people of America. It is an shaming our country across the world to see the “leader of the free world” the President of the United States needing a cheat sheet just to have a camera shot with another world leader. The other man had no such sheet in his hand. Who is running our country? It’s obviously not the President. He can’t even form a coherent thought on his own and needs his wife constantly at his side to lead him around.

We are heading for a disaster and it’s not a secret. It’s not one of those “Looney Tunes” cartoons where you have an anvil drop on your head and a minute later you are back going again. This is reality! People are getting hurt. People are dying. People are losing their means of putting food on the table and paying to house their families.

Only a couple of news outlets will cover what is really happening. The liberal news media covers things up, twists the news to suit their narrative, or outright lies about what is happening and who is behind it. Believe me it’s not Putin’s fault we have high inflation. It’s not Putin’s fault we have high gas prices.

For decades we have been conditiond to shy away from nationalism (caring about your own country) and accept a global view. (We have to all sleep in the same bed.) We’ve been told we must give up our individual freedoms and accept the “global common good” for security, food, medical needs. What they are not telling you is that a few desiganted leaders at the top of this “united one world government” get to tell you what, when, how, and where and even…if.

No, this is not a cartoon train wreck. It’s real and it’s spells “THE END” for America as we know it.

Roy’s Blog: “Weakening America”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6246

Daniel 7:24 (NASB) “As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom, ten kings will arise and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.”

With the shortages across America and the “Roe v Wade” Supreme Court ruling, what has been the beginning of a hot summer filled with tension and crisis is turning into a near explosion of rioting and destruction from the far-left movements. Empowered by the left and yes, by President Biden who stated that “this is not over”, and the pushing of the narrative by the “lame-stream media” an eruption is ahead for our nation. Unless states get a handle on the rioters and stop the destruction and lawlessness our nation is heading for a downfall.

We will soon not be in a position to even defend our own country much less be involved in helping any other. It is a purposeful weakening of America. From forcing any mention of God out of our schools to claiming the American Flag (the very symbol of freedom) is a terrible thing, something to be trampled on or burned, to ignoring the Constitution to suit their agenda, to pushing a division over racial issues from long in the past, our country is being destroyed from the inside.

With full-blown domestic terrorism about to take place, the radical left is making a deliberate attempt to overthrow our Constitution and seize control of the United States. This is about changing the outcome of the mid-term elections, which if held today would see a complete turn-around in the House and Senate. But in order to bring about their goals of bringing America from a Super-Power to just another weak member of the “Assembly of Nations” under the thumb of the United Nations, the election can’t take place (in a legal manner). They are determined to not lose POWER!

PRAY FOR AMERICA!

Roy’s Blog: “Red Alert”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6241

Isaiah 43:2 (NASB) “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.”

Today there seems to be no shortage of “red alerts”. From the ongoing shortages of baby formula to a shortage of cement, and now the entire United States supply of diesel engine oil may be wiped out in eight weeks. Think of it, no more oil until 2023 due to a “force majeure” (clause stating under certain circumstances they don’t have to fulfill their obligation) on additive chemical shortages. And, if the trucks don’t run, the shelves empty and the cupboard becomes bare.

A catastrophic situation is emerging that threatens to wipe out the entire supply of diesel engine oil across the U.S. leaving truckers with no diesel oil to keep their trucks running. Not a rumor…fact. Weird that all this is happening right now? When this administration is doing everything it can to hinder the trucking industry. When they are trying to FORCE electric trucks to be used. (I find it strange.)

Why is this happening? To change the U.S. and for that matter the world you must have a crisis. And whenever you have a hint of a crisis this administration (whoever is in charge?) makes the most of that crisis. They want so badly to be able to declare a “state of emergency” before the next election so that they can declare “Martial Law”. An excuse to delay or forego the election!

I am thrilled that “Roe v Wade” was struck down by the Supreme Court. It should never have been okayed in the first place. But beware of what may happen when the rioters begin to do like they’ve done before. The left may have the excuse they need to declare “Martial Law”. Self-propelling their own agenda.

One way or the other the world is going to be transformed. Do you have that protection outlined in Isaiah 43:2?

Roy’s Blog: “Without Firing A Shot”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6236

Revelation 22:20 NASB) “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes I am coming quickly.’ Amen, come, Lord Jesus.”

I didn’t expect to see so many demonic signs of the coming of the antichrist before the Rapture of the Bride of Christ. Why do I believe Jesus will come soon to take us home? It’s because the world is so very close to the unlocking of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse outlined in Revelation 6:1-8. When unleashed they will begin their deadly trek across planet earth.

Revelation 6:1-2 tells us about the first rider: Through the promise of peace, he will bring the world together under his rule. Already we see the formation of the “New World Order” through the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. All done without firing a shot.

In Revelation 6:3-4 the rider brings war: I believe the threat of all-out war is greater today than any time in the last fifty years. We can hear the saber-rattling of Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.

Revelation 6:5-6 points to economic devastation: Today we hear the warning voices, high inflation rates, crippling energy costs, and devastating food shortages. Voices declaring that an “economic hurricane” is fast approaching.

Revelation 6:7-8 tells of a global holocaust: The result of all these coming horrors will be a death count higher than anything the world has ever seen. One-fourth of the world’s population will die.

It’s very possible today for this to happen considering the pandemic, food shortages, and in some places water shortages. Many deaths…without firing a shot. Then you add the threat of nuclear arms being used, and you can easily see how over two billion people (about one-fourth of the world’s population) could die in a very short time.

No one wants to hear these things. But they are going to happen. If they were not true then heaven is not true…and we would be a people most miserable. God keeps His promises and He will return for His Bride! Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Roy’s Blog: “Dark Clouds”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6231

Luke 12:56 (NASB) “You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but how is it that you do not know how to analyze this present time?”

Dark clouds are on the horizon and those that choose to ignore them do so at their own peril. When WWI started nobody thought it would be the most horrific war Europe ever witnessed. Later it was referred to as the “war to end all wars”. It resulted in over twenty million deaths and propelled the United States into world leadership.

WWII erupted in 1939 and resulted in at least fifty million deaths. We haven’t learned a thing! Because now, we are at the door of WWIII. Will we be staring in the face of more deaths than all the wars previously fought…put together?

Think we won’t be involved? We are already at war in Ukraine. We may not have “men on the ground” but we have spent billions of dollars in the conflict. A conflict that could at any time spill over into an all-out war in the region and eventually into a global war–WWIII. Add to this the inevitable invasion of Taiwan by China which has been constantly preparing for the take-over, while all eyes are on Russia and Ukraine.

With new developments occurring, it appears Russia is so mad at Lithuania (a NATO member) that they could decide to attack. If so, here goes all the NATO countries that must be prepared to come to their aid (include the United States in that), hence WWIII.

Bigger than all these–the shadow war happening between Iran and Israel that could explode any day. Iran is just a step away from having its nuclear weapon ready despite Israel’s attacks on its facilities. Israel says it will NOT stand down. They will not tolerate Iran being a nuclear power.

Dark clouds are hovering.

Roy’s Blog: “Steps Away”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6228

I Corinthians 15:51-52 (NASB) “Behold, I tell you a mystery: we will not all sleep but we will all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”

There is no doubt our world appears to be spinning out of control. Here are just some of the headlines that point to the fulfillment of I Corinthians 15.

*Israel goes back to elections on October 25 of this year. Prime Minister Bennet has stepped down, being replaced for the time being by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, a progressive liberal.

*The United States is being led by the worst presidential administration in modern history (Marxist liberals) who have created nothing but problems for our country.

*Europe has drought conditions, extreme heat, energy shortages, and the war in Ukraine. Now, Lithuania has blocked rail services between Russia and Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea. Russia has issued the threat of retaliation. And it won’t just go away.

*While Iran is at the doorstep of having a viable nuclear weapon, one analyst just stated, “More than ever before in my lifetime, we are steps away from another World War.”

Taking all this into consideration and reading my Bible, I say we are mere “steps away” from the Rapture!
