Roy’s Blog: “You Win!”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/12/04/roy’s-blog-you-win/

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.”

You want to win, but you are too afraid to get out on the field. You want to win, but you are too afraid try out for the debate team. How can you win? You can’t. Timidity (fear) keeps us from doing things we want to do. There is plenty of fear in the world today. Some couples even fear having a child in these troubled times, and because of that fear, they lose out on one of the greatest joys.

As Christians, we know that fear should have no place in our lives. Our lives should not be guided by our fears but by God’s hand. Even so, it’s hard not to look at the world, our surroundings, and not have fear creep in. So where does this fear come from? Satan. He feeds on your fears, whispers in your ear, catches you at the worst times. This verse in Timothy should be memorized. Even Jesus used verses in the Old Testament to warn Satan to stay away.

Trust God. Have an itinerary of verses in your mind to help you when you are in a weak moment. There are many like: Psalm 23 (one of the best); Psalm 56:11 “I trust in God; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Psalm 56:3-4 “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?” Psalm 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” Isaiah 41:10, and there are many more.

Don’t allow Satan to win the battle for your time, your thoughts, maybe even your soul. Focus on God and His Word and YOU WIN!

Roy’s Blog: “That Moment”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/12/03/roy’s-blog-that-moment/

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

What we hear from the world are voices that are so at odds with what the Word of God says. Commercials we see on television and in magazines tell us, “Just do it! Do what you want, when you want. Get all you can out of this life. Be your own guide. Live for the moment!

I agree with that in theory, but not in the way the world intends. I have a much different “moment” in mind. We live moment to moment, breath to breath by the mercy of God.

For those of us who belong to Jesus, it’s not about the thrill of a moment in time on the ski slope or the high dive or the moment you cross the finish line in a race. It’s all about that one moment in time that will never come again, when in the “twinkling of an eye” life will change. Your body will change from a body that will decay over time to one that is imperishable. When Jesus comes to take us home to the place He’s preparing for us as it says in John 14:2-3, we shall all be changed in that moment. Changed forever–forever to be with our Lord and Savior.

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20)

Roy’s Blog: “Seek The Lord”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/12/02/roy’s-blog-seek-the-lord/

Psalm 63:1a “O God, You are my God; I shall seek you earnestly…”

Everyone of us are facing, or will face, moments of apprehension and fear. Trying to hide it or deny it doesn’t work very well. In fact, it just gets worse.

Where do these things come from? They are not from God. God has never failed me. In fact, He has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” He keeps His promises!

When we read the Bible, we see countless instances of God’s faithfulness. From Abraham to Isaac to Jacob, from David to Joseph and Mary, to Paul, we see God’s constant love and care for His people. His Word gives us light and clear guidance when circumstances bring fear. When we meditate upon His Word, pray over it, and incorporate it into our lives, His light chases away the darkness.

Psalm 63:3 “Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.”

God, Sovereign over the universe, is in control of all. Seek the Lord! His light dispels the darkness of this world.

Roy’s Blog: “Not Boring”

https://bphowlett.worpress.com/2020/12/01/roy’s-blog-not-boring/

Ezekiel 38:3a,4a “And say, ‘Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog…I will turn thee about, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army…'”

Israel’s secret service, Mossad, is now calling the family of Abraham “The United States of the Middle East”. Now, Israel’s military can use Saudi airspace against Iran to protect all the family of Abraham. Plus, all commercial flights can now fly to and from Israel across Saudi Arabian airspace. Crazy! Unimaginable just a very short time ago they were bitter enemies. But this is happening now.

We have entered a period where Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates are at “best friend” status. They understand that Iran and Turkey are seeking to ultimately destroy them all.

What we see is a new Middle East. If you’ve watched any world news, you’ve watched as this happened in your lifetime. “Sheba and Dedan” (Ezekiel 38:13) are definitely on Israel’s side. The real news out there is not boring!

Turkey continues to move troops into Syria and Libya with the goal of reestablishing the Ottoman Empire. Things are moving along faster and faster. Lot of stuff going on the mainstream media ignores.

These are things that affect us. They affect the whole world!

The signs of the times are: Not boring!

Roy’s Blog: “Slippery Slope”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/30/roy’s-blog-slippery-slope/

Revelation 13:16 “And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead.”

China’s President, Xi Jinping, proposes a global QR (Quick Read) code health system at the G-20 meeting to supposedly boost travel amid the pandemic. A QR code is a type of barcode that can be scanned and processed by a smartphone. President Xi said China is ready to aid other countries in tracking the health status of all citizens.

Keeping track of and controlling the people of the world will be necessary during the Tribulation. This year we have been witness to the slippery slope of worldwide control of the population by the Covid-19 pandemic. Now we can see the world’s leaders rushing to fulfill this prophecy in the days ahead. The fourth seal of the Tribulation unfolds to us a pestilence of the end time.

Now, just a week after Israel’s President Netanyahu’s secret meeting with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Jared Kushner is headed to the Arabian Kingdom for an unplanned visit. The family of Abraham is joining together.

We watch…as the Bible comes alive all around the world.

Roy’s Blog: “Opening Of The Pathway”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/29/roy’s-blog-opening-of-the-pathway/

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.”

Is this the end? Are we the last generation? How close are we?

Jesus burst on the scene performing the prophesied miracles of the Messiah, right before their eyes. And yet, they were blind to the clear sign of His first coming.

Likewise, today, most are following the same sad pattern. They are blind to the things happening in the world, events prophesied that point to the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus warned, “The Son of Man will come when least expected.” Luke 12:40b.

In prophecy, coming events often cast their shadows upon the world long before they arrive. It is happening right now! Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, and Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount are Islam’s three holy sites. Now, Saudi Arabia is claiming Al Aqsa mosque is in Saudi Arabia not Jerusalem. Instead it is located in an area called Ji’Ranah near Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Why is this important? Because it is opening up the pathway to build the Third Temple. And once that happens, pay attention! The Lord’s return will be very soon after that.

Roy’s Blog: “It’s Hard To Keep Up”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/28/roy’s-blog-it’s-hard-to-keep-up/

Matthew 24:21 (NIV) “For the there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now–and never to be equaled again.”

So many things are happening in the Middle East and United States, it’s hard to keep up. For starters, the national elections on November 3rd are still ongoing, and I believe the true outcome is quite a ways off yet. The President, two Senator, and eight U.S. Congress positions are still unknown. At the same time our military is on alert in the Middle East in the midst of turmoil between Israel and Iran.

In a daring daytime assassination, the head of Iran’s nuclear program was killed, and Iran blames Israel’s Mossad for the act. Things are heating up and there’s no telling what Iran will do in response.

To top it off, it appears Israel is headed for elections again for the Prime Minister position. There are so many things going on you don’t hear about in the main-stream media. It’s hard to keep up. By the time I write one blog, more things have happened…more signs of the times.

Stay ready! If you’re not ready, you need to get ready.

Roy’s Blog: “Nothing Like It”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/roy’s-blog-nothing-like-it/

Philippians 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Something BIG is up. You can sense it. Never have we experienced worldwide what we are experiencing now. From worldwide riots, to political unrest, demonic forces are on the rampage. Covid-19 has been used by the wicked forces in our world to transform America into a place our fore-fathers would no longer recognize. They have changed the world around us as well.

The key to transforming the whole world is our still contested presidential election. If Biden is able to enter the presidency, within a matter of months we will no longer be the America we know and love. They have already voiced their objectives. And they aren’t good. When we fall, other nations will be dragged down with us.

If you no longer feel comfortable in our country, in this land where we live, that’s a good thing. We are not supposed to feel comfortable in this world. We are in the world, but we are not supposed to be of the world. Our citizenship has changed.

The only force holding back the evil is the “Restrainer”. Until the church is removed, the forces of evil will be held at bay. But when the Lord calls out His church from the earth, we will be gone. People sense it. Many have voiced the fact they feel it is near.

There has never been anything like it, and never will be again. Once the church is gone. Evil will have a freedom it has never experienced. I’m glad I won’t be here to feel the brunt of that terrible time. Think things are bad now? Wait until then. There is “Nothing Like It” you can compare it to.

Roy’s Blog: “Take The Time”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/26/roy’s-blog-take-the-time/

Psalm 95:2 “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving. Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”

This is a truly blessed day of the Lord. Give Him thanks for the wonder and beauty of life He has given us. Knowing the air surrounds me or seeing the food all prepared and ready can’t nourish me. I have to take them in to sustain my body.

No knowledge of the truths of God can profit me, except as He, by His Holy spirit, enters into my soul and dwells within me. It is with the heart I wait upon God. God has given His Spirit to every believer and every blessing of Thanksgiving in Christ.

My desire is to move closer to Jesus, and enjoy the knowledge that He chose me, and I am His beloved.

Take time today, to praise the Lord.

Take time to be nourished by His Word.

Take time to worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Take the time to thank the Lord.

Roy’s Blog: “Spiritual Warfare”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/2020/11/25/roy’s-blog-spiritual-warfare/

Genesis 11:4 “Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves…'”

We are in a spiritual war for the very existence of America. The Bible tells us how this spiritual war will end up, but it does not tell us how many trials we will go through to get there or how long it will take. I believe everything we are seeing today points us on a fast track toward a one world government. Everything we see is not just to bring down President Trump, but America as a whole.

In September of 2020, Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau addressed the United Nations by video conference and called the coronavirus an opportunity to establish the UN’s ‘Agenda 2030’ (world government in place…up and running by 2030).

Remember Rahm Emmanuel’s response to the coronavirus: “Never allow a crisis to go to waste…start planning for the future.”

Today, across America, political leaders are openly calling for using the virus to usher in a Socialist Utopia (a New World Order). Their goal is not about helping humanity, not about saving the environment, not about pulling countries out of chaos. It is about putting in place a one world government where they are at the top and everyone else (you, me, all countries) is under their supreme authority. The Tower of Babel revisited.

We may go through some things before God intervenes. But just know, as God did at Babel, He will intervene when He considers it time.
