Roy’s Blog: “Destroying America”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7007

John 10:10 (NASB) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they [the sheep] would have life and have it more abundantly.”

It’s hard to believe. After all this is America, but it is happening as the government, universities, and “Big Tech” not only turn away from Christianity but tries to destroy Christianity all across America. We have seen for decades how the United States government has banned prayer and Bible reading from not only government offices but from any entity that receives any government funds. At the same time, they are promoting and funding every perversion you can imagine. Today, no public institution would even consider supporting Bible believing Christianity. But they will gladly support LGBTQ and abortion issues giving them free reign to do as they wish (with our children present) and even serving refreshments!

Now even the banking and corporate world are in the business of pushing out Christianity. Recently the “National Committee for Religious Freedom” had their account closed by J.P. Morgan Chase without prior notice. Retired Senator Brownback, who is a member of the “National Committee for Religious Freedom” said the bank stated, “That account has been closed. Your funds will be sent to you in a couple of weeks.” Brownback says he received an apology letter, but he still doesn’t know why the bank made the decision to close the account.

In trying to find some answers as to why this happened, Brownback said, “Normally what I found is that most people just kind of slink away and say, ‘Okay, I got de-banked or de-platformed. I’ll find another way.'”

That walking away without a fight is destroying our freedoms in America. Make them confess the real reason. Force them to own up to it. Otherwise, most people do not know it is happening all across America. Christians are targeted for destruction in our society. And it will eventually destroy America.

Roy’s Blog: “Macron Sweeps In”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=7003

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

He is out there–somewhere. He hasn’t come out of the shadows yet, but after the Rapture, he will soon pop up, fully developed and with the “perfect plan” to solve all the world’s problems. He will tout himself as the one to “save the world” from total collapse.

Emmanuel Macron, President of France, swooped into Washington, D.C. this week for a visit and took control of the political narrative, allowing President Joe Biden to bask in his afterglow. Today Macron is stronger, more powerful, and more influential than any other European leader, and he knows it.

Of all the world leaders and heads of state Pope Francis has met with, Macron is the man he has met most often. He more than any other world leader, traverses the globe speaking and meeting with heads of state, representing Europe and pushing for a “New World Order”. He sells himself as the “man with the plan” for the future safety and prosperity of the world. He definitely wants to be.

Roy’s Blog: “It Will All Be Over”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6999

John 14:3 (KJV) “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

As I scanned through the news a few days ago, it hit me like a ton of bricks…we are truly living in a world filled with chaos. There are riots in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Kazakhstan, and Mexico. In China, Iran, and Brazil there were major protests taking place, even with the threat of imprisonment or death, as people voiced their anger–calling out for freedom and justice.

In Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Ukraine war continues with no end in sight. This is truly a world filled with chaos. When will it all end? How should I react when I can’t do anything about it?

With ALL that I see, we–the Bride of Christ (the redeemed through the blood of Christ) –have even more to be excited about than any generation since the resurrection. When you take all the chaos, the unrest, and the moral decay of our world and plug it into the Bible where does it lead? Revelation!

It leads us to God’s promises. He is coming again to receive His children and going by world conditions, it has to be soon! We are not destined for the disaster that is coming to the world. We are going HOME! He is coming for ME. Is He coming for YOU?

Roy’s Blog: “The Winds Have Shifted”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6994

Joshua 11:20 (NASB) “For it was of the Lord to harden their hearts, to meet Israel in battle in order that He might utterly destroy them…”

Have you ever felt that subtle wind change that lets you know a storm or a change in the weather is going to come? The other day (in East Texas) it was 82 degrees. That evening the wind kicked up and you could tell things were about to change. The temperature dropped overnight to a chilly 39 degrees and the high the next day was just 56 degrees. It changed that quickly.

All the things you have heard that could happen to Israel and about Iran’s nuclear program are not fantasies. They are real and could happen very soon (kind of like the wind shifting). This week the Israeli Air Force is conducting a massive drill with the United States military simulating a strike on Iran’s Russian-built nuclear program.

Make no mistake. At some point very soon either Israel, or perhaps America, is going to go after Iran. Iran keeps trying to complete their nuclear capabilities until they can successfully fire one at Israel. It’s going to happen eventually unless Iran is held in check.

The recent election in Israel put Benjamin Netanyahu back in office as Prime Minister, his fifth term, and adds to the tantalizing situation. Netanjahu has often said that Israel needs to take out the Iranian nuclear program for the safety of Israel. The change in how the wind blows is–it appears the present United States administration agrees and that changes everything.

Life can shift so fast…like the wind. When it comes to the important things you can’t wait for the shift in the wind, or the sound of the trumpet. It will be too late. Get your life right…right now!

Roy’s Blog: “Divine Powers”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6991

Daniel 7:9a, 10b “I kept looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days took His seat. …and myriads and myriads were standing before Him; the court sat, and the books were opened.”

It’s hard to believe but these things are out in the open with very little being contested or rebuked: The Washinton Examiner reported a Cambridge professor saying, “It’s ‘legitimate’ to believe that Jesus had a ‘trans’ body.” This is just one sign of what is happening in our world.

Klaus Schwab, head of the WEF (World Economic Forum), has declared that “Jesus is fake news” and that WEF leaders have “acquired divine powers” to rule over humanity. According to the WEF, a new one world religion has arrived, and it unites all of humanity in worshipping at the altar of climate science, techno-communism, and eugenics. Hard to believe-yes. But it’s happening…right now.

Klaus Schwab’s right-hand-man Yuval Noah Harari has stated that the WEF has been successful in its plans, that it is “acquiring divine powers of creation and destruction”. He is promising the WEF will “turn humans into gods”. According to the WEF, “Jesus is fake news, God is dead, and you don’t have a soul”. The WEF has spent decades quietly infiltrating elected government, penetrating cabinets, and wielding an abundance of influence on the world’s corridors of power.

They are no longer hiding what they are trying to do. They are in the open and sure of their success. The first country to buy into this “totalitarian” type of government was New Zealand, then Canada, and Brazil. Will the United States be next?

(Totalitarian: relating to a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.)

Roy’s Blog: “Give Us a Man”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6987

Daniel 7:8 (NASB) “While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them…”

Many years ago, with the disunity and political turmoil in Europe, it was horrifying to hear that a European leader was practically calling for the antichrist by saying, “Be he god or devil, we will receive him.” Most people didn’t take the statement seriously. But with what is happening in our world today, he seemed to have called it exactly.

A chaotic world. Here is a list of what’s going on right now:

*Riots in Belgium

*Riots in the Netherlands

*Riots in Germany

*Protests all over China (because of the three-year shutdown)

*Protests in Iran (because of the murder of a young girl and treatment of women)

*Protests in Brazil

*Riots in Kazakhstan

*War in Northern Syria

*War in Northern Iraq

*War in Ukraine

*Unrest in America (due to energy policies and threat of another shutdown and mask mandates)

We’ve watched the rise of the satanic movement from the shadows of our world–abortions and the LGBTQ movement. Now since the mid-term elections TV and social media pundits are spouting, “Biden, Pelosi, Trump, and McConnel are too old. We need fresh blood. Someone with new ideas to solve our problems. They say it’s time for someone else to lead, someone that can appeal to young voters, a uniter, not a divider. (Someone like Governor Newsome of California who by his policies has caused a mass migration OUT of the state?) (Crazy!)

What we hear worldwide is the outcry for “a young, smooth-talking man with a plan”. The antichrist is coming to answer that call!

Roy’s Blog: “Seeing the Invisible”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6981

Let’s face it. Even for Christians, life has trials and heartaches. That’s one of the reasons Jesus said, “Come unto me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28 NASB)

Paul had this to say about the difficulties of life, “Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary light affliction is producing for us an external weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

Notice two things Paul said about our struggles: They are momentary, and they are “light” afflictions. I know when you are going through them, they seldom seem light or momentary. Trials often seem endless and unbearable. So, what does Paul mean? Paul is looking at life from an eternal perspective. We forget our lives on earth are only a tiny speck on the timeline of eternity. Once conceived, your life is eternal, but there is one major differing factor…where you will spend that eternity. Heaven or Hell. In the presence of God, or eternally separated from Him.

Remember, if you are a child of the King, “All things work together for good to those who love God…” (Romans 8:28). When you are facing difficulties focus on “seeing the invisible“. Those things which are eternal.

Roy’s Blog: “A Controlled Burn”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6977

Malachi 4:1a (NASB) “For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze…”

Ted Cruz once assessed United States foreign policy by saying, “The whole world is on fire.” It is easy to understand his statement when it comes to the growth in the last few years in nuclear weapons capability and the threat of their actual use by Satan inspired world powers. From Russia to North Korea and China to Iran, threats are mounting.

It’s not just having the missiles and nuclear weapons (which have been around since the 1940s) but the idea of actually using them has grown, and that is causing fear across the world. Where does it stop? If one (idiot) satanic leader with their quest for power attacks with nuclear weapons, another retaliates, and another steps in to counterattack, where would the world be by that time?

Let’s face it. There are plenty of problems in our world, and “metaphorically speaking” our world is on fire. It is raging in sin and corruption, and those will only get worse.

Is the world on fire? Yes. But that is not the whole answer. I Thessalonians 5:9 says of all believers, “God has not destined us for wrath.” You and I can be “destined” to be in that number that are “changed, in the twinkling of an eye at the last trumpet“. (I Corinthians 15:51-52)

Yes, the world is on fire, but it is what firemen call a “controlled burn“. Because God is still in control. He is still on His throne and His plan will prevail. Hallelujah!

Roy’s Blog: “Happening Now”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6973

Matthew 24:33 (NASB) “When you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.”

It’s hard to believe but until the Iranian Revolution occurred and Shiite Muslim extremists deposed Shah Reza Pahlavi, Iran and Israel’s relations were good. In fact, Iran was Israel’s only friend in the area. But since the Shiite Muslim Revolution, Iran has become their most dangerous Middle Eastern enemy.

Today Iran has one of the most powerful armies on earth. They have an arsenal of ballistic missiles and will soon have nuclear weapons. And… they do plan to use them! They have mobilized fellow Shia Muslims in Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere, breeding terrorism and havoc.

What’s their purpose? An Islamic Shiite caliphate making Shia Islam the world’s dominant religion, law, and government. The primary obstacles to their goals are the United States and Israel. This is why they chant “death to America” and “death to Israel”. They spew their hatred toward both countries for standing in the way of their global ambitions.

Make no mistake. The nuclear threat Iran poses will be dealt with very soon by the incoming Netanyahu administration in Israel. This will cause Iran and Russia to draw closer than ever and tells me the Gog invasion is near. And it is all happening now, in our generation, just as the Bible prophesied.

Roy’s Blog: “For Such a Time as This”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=6968

Deuteronomy 31:6 (NASB) “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”

For such a time as this. Think about it. Out of all the generations of mankind to walk the earth, you were “chosen before the foundation of the world” to live at this time. (Ephesians 1:4)

God has worked in time past through men like Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and women like Sarah, Ruth, and Hanna. But now He chooses to accomplish His plan and purpose through you and others of this generation. Each generation has had their heartaches and struggles, and many seemed as impossible to them as ours are to us today. But remember, no matter what the world throws at you, God loves you, and you were chosen for such a time as this.

Each of the six men and women I named faced “impossible odds” in their generation. Things no one would think they could overcome. But all of them were chosen for God’s plan and purpose in their generation. So are you. It is not the difficulty you face but the power of the Lord you serve. Call on that power…every day and for such a time as this!
