Roy’s Blog: “According To Plan”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5106(opens in a new tab)

2 Thessalonians 2:6 “And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.”

When Joe Biden says everything is going according to plan, he is referring to the United Nations Sustainable Development Plan. This plan was announced by Pope Francis on September 23, 2015 to delegates from 193 nations who gave a thunderous ovation to the “New Universal Agenda”. This agenda is to be accomplished by 2030.

The document calls for a “World Constitution”, a “World Court”, a “World Government”, a “World Religion”, and a “World Economic System”. Think about it. This agenda is made up by the United Nations (countries who don’t have America’s best interests at heart), and will be enforced by U.N. troops.

*By 2030, the U.N. will be transformed into a body that can require all nations to obey.

*All countries will implement the plan.

*Not a single human being will be allowed to escape this “great leap forward”.

*The world’s children will be indoctrinated with the idea that we are all “global citizens”.

This is the “New Universal Agenda” that every nation will implement before 2030 (by man’s planning under Satan’s influence).

But God has another plan set before the beginning of the world. And God will accomplish His plan, in His time, and in His way.

Roy’s Blog: “Where Do We Go From Here?”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5101(opens in a new tab)

Matthew 24:40 “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.”

Many years ago my wife and I decided to buy our children a nice camcorder each, for Christmas. They were at the age of starting their own families and we thought it would be nice to record those special events. We searched and searched for what we wanted with no luck. We asked each other, “Where do we go from here?” “I don’t know. Where you you think we could go that might have what we want?” We did finally find what we wanted after much searching.

Have you been searching for that certain something that is missing in your life? Trying different places, different churches, but you can’t find what satisfies that elusive need? Look no further. What you need, what you may be missing, isn’t in a specific church or a specific pastor. It is Jesus Christ. He satisfies all that you need. The “church” is the body of believers come together for praising God and for fellowship. But, if Jesus is absent in your life you will still be looking for that certain something.

The time is short. Ask yourself, “Where do I go from here?” Be certain of your destination. Follow Jesus Christ and trust Him today. He will take you to your final destination.

Where do we go from here? For the believer it is heaven and into the presence of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for eternity. For the unbeliever it is hell and everlasting separation from God.

Roy’s Blog: “Spiritual Awakening”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5098(opens in a new tab)

Acts 2:17 “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people, Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

Is the rumor true that the Israeli army is passing out New Testaments to new recruits? No.

But, things are changing as more and more Jewish followers of Yeshua as well as Christian Arabs sign up, the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) will provide New Testaments (in English) to swear in on. And it’s not just the Jewish young people swearing into the IDF.

Even though the Iranian Administration kills and persecutes Christians, many are having dreams and visions of Jesus Christ, creating a miraculous spiritual awakening in their nation.

Even nations where the Bible is forbidden, like Saudi Arabia, have seen a rise in men and women secretly coming to faith in Jesus Christ. It’s hard to imagine nations like the United Arab Emirates being open to evangelical services. Limited, yes. but things are changing in these last days.

Roy’s Blog: “Where Are We?”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5093(opens in a new tab)

Revelation 1:11 “…I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: Write in the book what you see, and send it to the seven churches…”

Prophetically, where are we in the Bible?

John was commanded, nearly two thousand years ago, to write to the seven churches of Asia Minor, the “things which must soon take place.” (Revelation 1:1)

So began the Lord’s Revelation to the seven churches that outline the history of the church age. He began with the church at Ephesus and ended with the church at Laodicea-the church that is neither “hot nor cold” but lukewarm, the church where He “stands at the door and knocks” for entrance!

Where are we today? We are considered in the Laodicean church age. Every age has some of each type of the seven churches, but each period has more of the type for that age. More of our churches today are “lukewarm”. They have church, but there is no fire, no great testimony. They just go through the motions. Some seem on fire because of great music, and there is nothing wrong with a great music program, unless that is all it is–an emotional response to the music which fades even before you leave the church.

We are in the last church age. That means we should be listening for the trumpet call saying, “Come up here!” When the doors of heaven open to receive all the saints, I will be there. Where will you be?

As surely as the Lord came two thousand years ago, we are going to fly away soon!

Roy’s Blog: “Climate Change”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5089(opens in a new tab)

Genesis 3:8 “They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.”

I don’t deny that the climate changes…it’s called weather. But so many are being blinded by a strong demonic deception that man has caused all the climate change. A large percentage of the climate changes are caused by natural conditions (solar cycles, volcanic sulfur, orbital wobbles, axial precession, and short-term seasonal changes), not by human or animal emissions, not by anything man has done with one exception. Sin.

Before Adam and Eve sinned they lived in a perfect environment. Sin brought changes into that perfect environment. And, the only solution to these problems was supplied to us–for free! It only cost the blood of Jesus Christ. (Remember, nothing is free. Someone is paying the debt.) Repentance and saving faith in the the one who died for our sins will solve all the problems in the world. Those who trust in Jesus have a perfect home, with a perfect atmosphere, waiting for us.

The more we move away from God the more problems the world will face and climate change will be way down at the bottom of the list of worries. Don’t let demonic forces use over-blown environmental issues to cover over what is really of concern in our world today. Sin.

Roy’s Blog: “Delusion And Deception”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5085(opens in a new tab)

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

When asked about the signs of His coming and the end of the age, the first thing Jesus told Peter, Andrew, James, and John was to “take heed”. That phrase means to “see and discern“. In other words, Jesus told them that in the last days people would pay attention to what they see happening. Jesus then adds, “that no one deceives you.” Don’t let what you see fool you. Lies and deception are all around us. People (even our children) are being deluded into thinking homosexuality, transgenderism, and that there are more than two sexes (male and female) is all just natural and that it is okay, because they say so. They demand you believe what they tell you.

The deception taught in our schools that the universe began with one “big explosion” and everything fell into perfect sequence is designed to take the power of God out of the equation. Take God out, and feed people deception and lies. A perfect set-up for Satan!

These are the types of things Jesus warned us about. “Take heed that no one deceives you.” Look at everything through the eyes and heart of God’s word. You will see the delusion and deception for what it really is. For the last few years it’s been obvious to me–many people have been given over to demonic possession. Look around you. Remember the riots where businesses and police stations were torched. A whole section of a city in America was taken over. Hollywood actors were spouting threats against our nation, “Yes, I have thought a lot about burning down the Whitehouse,” spewed one actress (Madonna) and with no repercussion.

These are the days Jesus warned us would come. They are here! Get ready! He could come again at any moment. The time has never been so in line Biblically.

Roy’s Blog: “Falling Into Place”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5081(opens in a new tab)

Isaiah 24:20 “The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard. And it totters like a shack. For its transgression is heavy upon it, and it will fall, never to rise again.”

It’s easy when we are younger to injure a shoulder, a knee, or a back…wait a few days and they usually get better and we go on. As we get older those injuries aren’t so easy to get over, and we may try to put off doing something about the injury (therapy or surgery). But, there comes a time when you have to face the fact that it isn’t going to get better on its own.

We above all people should not be surprised at the state of our world, our country. It has been festering for many years with sin and degradation. We turned a blind eye to many things, let little things go we should have dealt with at the time, and now we realize it’s at a critical point. Our country is being transformed before our very eyes into something our forefathers wouldn’t even recognize. (One even I don’t recognize from just a few years ago.)

But, it’s not unexpected. The Lord always reminds His people in advance of what is to happen. Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.” Things are not falling apart; they are falling into place.

Everything we see from the lining up of countries against Israel, to the growing acceptance of globalism, to the pulling back of the United States as a force to be reckoned with, reminds us how close we are to the coming of the Lord.

Roy’s Blog: “Manufactured Crisis”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5077(opens in a new tab)

Daniel 2:42 “The toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the Kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle.”

What we are seeing today is one manufactured crisis after another in order to usher in the ” New World Order”. For this to happen the United States must fall from power and dominance on the world stage, and that is happening right now. Our status is gone; our credibility is gone; and soon, our finances will be gone.

The pandemic is a manufactured crisis. Social distancing, quarantines, closing of businesses and churches, and “mandatory vaccinations” are all a part of the manufactured chaos. The overwhelming influx of illegal immigrants across our border is a manufactured crisis. Spending money we don’t have to give illegal aliens free everything is a crisis in the making by this administration. The whole border issue is changing America and not in a good way.

It is no accident we have moved from the number one energy producing nation to now importing from foreign countries. It is a manufactured crisis by the (manufactured) Biden Administration under their so-called Green New Deal. Production in our country has been curtailed, while the administration begs OPEC to increase production, and ships oil from Russia to satisfy our “manufactured” energy shortage.

What we are seeing is the formation of a world prepared for the New World Order led by the Antichrist.

Roy’s Blog: “Without Firing A Shot”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5073(opens in a new tab)

Daniel 7:24 “The ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.”

Speaking in Beijing, China, President of the Communist Party CCP and Supreme Commander of the Chinese Armed Forces, Xi Jinping said, “The union with Taiwan will take place for sure and soon.” He also said that “Taiwan and China are one.” They have taken over Hong Kong and Singapore, now they plan on taking over Taiwan. They’ve even been so bold as to warn America to stay out of it.

And… why should we care? Because: the Chinese takeover of Taiwan gives China superiority in the Central Pacific and for the first time ever, superiority over the United States. We do a lot of business with Taiwan. It has the sixth largest foreign exchange reserve in the world, and Taiwan makes the bulk of the world’s semi-computer chips. And Taiwan wants to remain their own country, free from China strict rule. America has always helped foster that independence…until now.

It doesn’t take long to see how the fall of Taiwan into China’s hands would completely change the economic structure in the world and the super-power status of the U.S.. Economically and militarily we would be transformed in a matter of months. It would bring us under the umbrella of the “New World Order”…without firing a shot.

Roy’s Blog: “Riding Along”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=5069(opens in a new tab)

Matthew 24:44 “Therefore, be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the, the Son of Man cometh.”

We don’t often think about it, but tires are amazing. No matter how cold it is outside they carry us along, and when it is so hot you could fry an egg on the pavement, they continue to carry us along in comfort. Tires take the heavy load, smooth out the bumps, and save our bodies from being tossed about. They take the punishment while we just ride along.

You know, one day, a tire may get a nail in it or it may wear out and lose the tread. But, you don’t think about that as you ride along in comfort, getting to your job or meeting. Maybe once in a while you might kick one (great way to check it), but otherwise you they don’t cross your mind…until it’s too late.

It’s the same way with Jesus Christ. He took the punishment that was ours. He carries us along through life. If you have put your trust in Him He carries your load, smooths out the bumps, and He will carry us through to our final destination. But you can’t wait for “the nail in the tire”. Trust Jesus now and you will get to your destination.
