Roy’s Blog: “Wickedness”

Matthew 24:37-39 (NASB) “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

“Just like in the days of Noah.” In Genesis 6:5 the Bible says of that time, “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” How long? How long will the Lord put up with mankind before He says ENOUGH!

  • In Australia, two women have been cited for a crime because they criticized a biological male who forced an infant to suckle his hairy “breast”.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers apologized and re-invited anti-Catholic “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” trans “nuns” to “pride night”.
  • Minors seeking gender-affirming care in Washinton will be protected from the intervention of their parents. Parents are being treated as the enemy when they try to protect THEIR children from mutilation and life-altering drugs.
  • Franklin Graham warned Christian broadcasters, “We are living in a cancel culture that seeks to destroy Christians.”

Satan wants to destroy any Christian influence in the world. But remember, in Christ, we will never live a day, not a moment, without the love of the Lord. Share that love with everyone you can-they desperately need it.

Roy’s Blog: “What Could Go Wrong?”

Psalms 27:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?”

In Los Angeles, California, officials are trying to stop the spread of the flesh-eating drug xylazine, a veterinary tranquilizer approved in the United States for cows and horses. It is known as the “zombie” drug and is being cut with a cocaine and heroin mix. Like most other illicit drugs it is spreading across the nation. It’s just as you would expect when drugs have been decriminalized. There is no deterrent. What could possibly go wrong?

With unknown numbers and origins of illegals ( many from terrorist nations) flooding the United States, what could go wrong? Fentanyl and fentanyl-laced drugs have flooded in with them; terrorists have escaped detection by not going through proper channels, carrying who knows what kind of weapons; people who live on or near the border (on their own land) have put up with illegal aliens crossing their land littering and destroying as they go. I could go on, but you get the idea.

In that same vein, it has now been reported that a railcar load of ammonium nitrate has come up…missing. It was on the way to California, but never made it. Ammonium nitrate is commonly used as a fertilizer but can be weaponized into a bomb. It was used in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

Earlier this month, Customs and Border Protection officers intercepted an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) bound for the United States at the entry point in Douglas, Arizona. These things are happening because they are being allowed to happen. It could be stopped by our government within 24 hours, but they don’t seem to be willing.

With all that is going on, and that could possibly go wrong, how can we have peace of mind? The only way is to fall into the arms of Jesus. Make Him your anchor in life, and say, “The Lord is the defense of my life. Whom shall I dread?” Amen and amen.

Roy’s Blog: “Blinded”

John 12:39-40 (NASB) “For this reason, they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, ‘He has blinded their eyes and He hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and perceive with their heart and be converted and I heal them.'”

Here are some interesting facts as we near the Rapture of the Bride of Christ-the Church.

  • One of the most important themes throughout the Hebrew Bible is that the God of Israel promises to send the Messiah to Earth one day to redeem the Jewish people and rule Israel and the entire world. (Isaiah 9:6-7; Micah 5:2,4-5a; Daniel 9:24-26a). Christians around the world believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah and that He is returning to Earth in the “last days”. Yet, almost half of all Israeli Jews have given up believing that the Messiah is real and coming in the future.
  • Throughout the Hebrew Bible, the God of Israel repeatedly refers to the Jewish people as His “chosen people”. (I Kings 3:8; Psalms 33:12; Isaiah 43:20) The vast majority of “evangelical” Christians also believe this. Yet, as Israel celebrates the 75 Anniversary of the historic prophetic rebirth of their nation, less than two out of three Israeli Jews believe that Jews are the “chosen people” as the Bible describes.

We can see today how John 12:40 is so true. People refuse to believe and they have no faith. Jesus’ words ring out in our society, “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.” (John 5:43)

Roy’s Blog: “Alert and Sober”

I Thessalonians 5:4-6 (NASB) “But you, brethren, are not in darkness that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.”

Paul tells us in Thessalonians 5 that Jesus is coming like a thief in the night, but not for the Christian. He is coming like a thief for the lost in the world who have never been “born-again”, those who have refused the life-saving gift of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. They may even be very religious, but if they have no true relationship with the Lord-they are lost and in darkness.

Paul states in verse 4, “But you, brethren, are not in darkness.” If you are born-again in Christ, you have the Holy Spirit residing in you. The Holy Spirit will illuminate your mind and heart, opening your spiritual eyes to see and understand the mysteries of God’s Word, including the times and the character of the Lord’s return. We are to be alert and “sober (v8) having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”

We are not destined for the wrath that is to come upon the world. But, we need to “encourage one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:25

Roy’s Blog: “Waiting”

Psalms 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord.”

Waiting is one of the most irritating things in modern life. Why do I always hit every red light, especially when I’m in a hurry? When I have an appointment weeks or months ahead of time, why am I left waiting forever in the waiting room? They knew I was coming. Let’s face it, we are an impatient people. But there is something to be learned from having to wait. Being forced to wait, teaches us patience. It’s called discipline.

The discipline of patiently waiting is something few of us have developed. It starts in the home. If a child always gets what it wants instantly, they don’t learn patience. Don’t give in early when you say to wait until a specific time because the child fusses or demands it now. Teach that patience is rewarded.

Learning to wait patiently on God strengthens our faith that God will accomplish His will and purpose in our lives, in His time, and in His perfect way. Too many have preempted God’s will because of impatience. We will experience peace and joy knowing our patience has brought about God’s perfect will in our lives. Is it easy? No, but it is worth it.

When you experience that next stressful moment of something pushing, rushing you to act right now…just take a step back and wait. Let God make the right road very clear for you to proceed.

Isaiah 40:31 “Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.”

Roy’s Blog: “Way Maker”

Isaiah 42:16 (NASB) “I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, in paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them and rugged places into plains. These are the things I will do, and I will not leave them undone.”

In the world of sixteenth and seventeenth-century Europe, a “waymaker” was a person responsible for creating a road and keeping it in good repair for royal travelers. When the King or Queen planned to travel, the waymaker and his team would prepare the road to be as smooth as possible before the trip. Waymaker is an old profession.

The world around us has paths, roads, highways, super-highways, and interstate highways with “mixers” that could drive you crazy. Many of our roads and streets are dotted with potholes (some you could lose a small car into). To save your vehicle (and yourself) from damage you have to miss as many of them as possible. It’s an everyday struggle.

Life is like those pothole-filled roads. We go along and everything is fine, then you hit a rough place you didn’t see coming. You could have unexpected health issues, job loss, car damage from a wreck, or a tree falling on your house. Even with the help of family and friends, the struggles can overwhelm us. But, Praise God, in Jesus Christ, He has left us a “Way Maker”, in the love, care, guidance, and presence of the Holy Spirit who will be with us to the end. We are not alone! Call on the Holy Spirit to guide you today and every day.

Roy’s Blog: “Energy Catastrophe”

Isaiah 41:10 (NASB) “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

The Biden administration is announcing a climate ruling requiring most fossil fuel power plants to slash their “greenhouse gas pollution” 90% by 2035-2040 or shut down.

There is an energy catastrophe coming because the Biden administration is retiring current sources of energy way before there are any reliable new resources in use to handle the needs of America.

Senator Manchin said in a statement Wednesday, “This administration is determined to advance its radical climate agenda and has made it clear they are hellbent on doing everything in their power to regulate coal and gas-fueled power plants out of existence, no matter the cost to energy security and reliability.”

There is absolutely no doubt we are headed for a crisis when within that short time (2035-2040) EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) rules will shut down virtually all coal and gas-powered plants that produce 60% of our total energy needs at this time. Once they have shut them down, it would take YEARS to get them back online. (Once the people of America begin to wake up and realize they are cold (or hot) and hungry and want things back that they have lost. But it will be too late.)

Man cannot “fix” the climate of the whole Earth. That is foolishness. Earth is in God’s hands. Your security is in the Lord and Him alone.

Roy’s Blog: “2030”

Matthew 24:7 (NASB) “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places, there will be famines and earthquakes.”

According to “The Defender” news, New York City will begin tracking the “carbon footprint” of household food consumption and will put caps on how much red meat can be served in public institutions. This will be done as part of their initiative to achieve a 33% reduction in carbon emissions from food by…2030. That date comes up so often in their narrative. New York will also measure “greenhouse gas pollution” from producing and consuming other consumer goods such as apparel, travel, and healthcare.

Meanwhile in the Netherlands, which is the second-largest agricultural exporter, the Dutch government is planning to purchase and then CLOSE DOWN up to 3000 farms in an effort to comply with a European Union environmental MANDATE to reduce nitrogen pollution. The number of dairy farms in the Netherlands is set to decline one third by…2030.

On September 16, 2015, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) announced the United States “Food Loss and Waste Reduction Act”. Their goal? Reduce food loss and waste by 50 % to 164 pounds per person per year by…2030.

How are they going to do this without knowing everything about you? (What you eat, drink, where you go.) They can’t.

Worldwide, over and over, the goal is to transform our world by…2030.

Never think for a moment things will just stay the same. The “elitists” are determined to control YOU!

Roy’s Blog: “Exciting, Yet Intimidating”

Daniel 12:4 (NASB) “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

Back in 1994, there was a buzz about something that was going to “change everything” call the “Information Superhighway”. When it was released, the internet did change everything. It ushered in the personal computer age, and the world has never been the same.

I remember the excitement of being able to receive “real-time” messages. It amazed me how I could get a picture of what was going on in the world and it not be hours or even days old.

Now in 2023, there is the same type of buzz about Apple and AI (Artificial Intelligence) and it is going to aline our world with “end-time” prophecy in unimaginable ways. Soon, people will be interfacing with holograms so realistic it will be like you are in the room with the people you are talking to. And…you won’t be able to tell if it is the real person or not. That’s scary.

Computers are being designed in a manner that leads them to be self-aware, self-learning, and able to function independently. They can make decisions based on their information at the time. And that is also scary.

It’s intimidating but it’s also very exciting. Bible prophecy is being played out in our generation and with the increase in knowledge we can understand just how they can happen. Exciting times! Come, Lord Jesus!

Roy’s Blog: “Hate Group”

John 15:20a (NASB) “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master; if they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you…'”

I grew up and have lived most of my life in the heart of the “Bible Belt” in America as the son, grandson, and nephew of preachers. But in the last several years we have seen a nationwide campaign to de-platform and harass Christians. In fact, conservative, Bible-believing Christians are considered synonymous with being a “hate group”.

Dozens of major organizations are working together to suppress speech that they don’t like-any speech that doesn’t fit their agenda. Many have had their social media accounts “de-platformed” and even “de-banked”. That means that funding they had coming through their media accounts for churches or those that have shows where people pay for access stops, and those accounts are lost.

Nineteen state attorneys general asserted last Tuesday that J.P. Morgan Chase “de-banked” organizations for their conservative and religious tendencies. Some of the ones “de-banked” were the “National Committee for Religious Freedom”, “The Family Council”, and the “Defense of Liberty”. Of course, J.P. Morgan Chase is not the only financial institution doing this. Many others (such as PayPal) have also been shutting down accounts that belong to Christian groups and Christian individuals.

It was only a few years ago (around the time Obama was President) that they tried to silence Pastors, going so far as to suggest the pastor needed to have his sermons pre-approved before he could present them. That didn’t fly! So they went to plan B. It’s funny (not) to me how most of the true hate speech I hear is not coming from the conservatives in America but from the left. They have made it clear that anyone who follows Christian Biblical principles is the enemy.

Dearly Beloved, it will only get worse. But, hold on to those time-tested principles and you will be able to stand until the end.
