Roy’s Blog: “Crazy Town”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4616(opens in a new tab)

Matthew 24:37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.”

I heard a new anchor this morning referring to our nation as “Crazy Town.” While I didn’t like hearing it, it’s true. Our nation has become more crazy by the day.

We have a segment of the nation telling the rest what term needs to be used for “mom” and it’s not momma or mother; it “birthing person“. Never would I have ever called my momma “birthing person”. This same segment wants to do away with other personal terms and make them impersonal to take away any differentiation or individuality. America needs to stand up and say NOPE! You can call yourselves whatever you want, but don’t dictate to the rest of the world what to say. But, too many people have been brainwashed in our schools and colleges to think this is the right thing to do.

People have lost jobs for not going along with their crazy terms. What was once terrible and perverted has been allowed a huge voice and acceptance in our society.

On this season of “America’s Got Talent” a young dancing group, from Mesquite, Texas of all places, performed. They were good. They were excited, fresh-faced young people…led by a trans-gender man in full flashy (trashy) regalia. Oh, everyone went wild when he came out on the side of the stage in a dress, wig, very high heels, and glaring make-up. Is this something to now cheer about?

I’ve often read and thought about the terrible and immoral society the Bible described-about how the time near the last days would be. Could not imagine it happening right before my eyes. Never imagined I would see this degree of craziness in my America!

We really have become “Crazy Town” USA.

Beware! When things are shaping up to be like in the days of Noah…the end is near!

Roy’s Blog: “Fret Is A Four-Letter Word”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4612(opens in a new tab)

Isaiah 26:4 “Trust in the Lord forever, for in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.”

Fretting is assuming a responsibility that was never intended to be ours. It’s like a three year-old wringing their hands over the mortgage when Dad’s bank account has an abundance. In times like these we can go about the business of life with confidence because our heavenly Father has an abundance of all the things we need. He knows those needs and will supply them even before we are aware of them. And when we do ask, he showers us in that abundance.

Anxious thoughts will assault us, and when they do, remember this promise, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts you.” Isaiah 26:3

The real need for our anxiety filled world isn’t well stocked shelves, money, or even health; it is peace with God. The kind of peace that “passeth all understanding”. Philippians 4:7

You interact daily with some people that have never even opened a Bible. It’s true. They may have heard a few verses, but there was no actual connection with them to God. John 3:16 at a football game is an example.

Don’t fret. In the discourse of life, show the Bible through your life, your actions. Show them how you can have peace and hope in this crazy, lost world.

Roy’s Blog: “Canary In The Coal Mine”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4609(opens in a new tab)

Ezekiel 37:12 “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel.'”

Brigiite Wielheesen, a famed journalist in counter terrorism from the Netherlands, wrote recently, “If the Jews are European canaries in a coal mine, then this chick is now not alive.” (Canaries were used in mines to check for poison gas. If the chick was dead in it’s cage the men knew not to go any further. They needed to leave immediately.)

But, it’s not just Europe experiencing anti-Semitism, it’s happening around the world, driving the Jewish people back to their ancestral homeland of Israel. This showcases that Europe is transforming into a hotbed, preparing for the rise of the Antichrist.

The same demonic forces that gave birth to Hitler before the holocaust are at work today, driving our world toward Satan’s final solution. I don’t know his name or what he is doing right now, but I know that he must be alive in Europe today–preparing to offer Israel a false hope!

There is poison in our world today and it’s time to vacate this “coal mine”!

Roy’s Blog: “You Lived It Now Tell It”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Jesus knew all the struggles Paul would go through (2 Corinthians 11:21-33 lists them). But, equally true is that the Lord brought him through each one. The Lord never intended Paul’s life to be nothing but heartache, but victory over the demonic forces in our world. The same is true for you!

Whenever you go through deep waters or fiery trials, your understanding of God’s goodness and mercies moves beyond head knowledge into real life experiences. And, He wants you to use those experiences to help others in their struggles by telling them what God has brought you through.

We all have experienced divine intervention through trials and struggles. Recognize those times. They were not just luck. That crash you missed by seconds you attributed to luck…not luck. That cancer you survived…not just one of the lucky ones.

God intends you to use these trials and struggles to help others and to glorify Him. Just as the raising of Lazarus was not only for the benefit of his family, it was to show God’s glory!

What is your story? You lived it, now tell it to glorify God!

Roy’s Blog: “Grand Scheme”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4600(opens in a new tab)

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you; not as the world gives do I give you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”

In the grand scheme of things, God is at work orchestrating all the events of man toward a final climax. Even though this world is filled with violence, chaos, and heartbreak, God is still enthroned above and is in absolute control. The wars we hear of, the hatred we see are demonic, not from God. But, God uses these things to draw us closer to Him that we might be strengthened and comforted.

The earth heaves with earthquakes, storms, and diseases just as God warned us it would. Satan roams the valleys and hills reeking devastation. But, his time is almost over.

Through it all, you and I can experience peace. We know our God reigns supreme! I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. I don’t know what will happen to America in the coming days. But, I do know who holds my hand and will never let go.

God’s grand scheme is for you not to worry about anything, but trust Him for everything!

Jeremiah 23:22 “If they had stood before me and listened to me, they would have spoken my words, and they would have turned my people from their evil ways and deeds.”

The progressive agenda with its drug culture and gender confusion is emboldening the transformation of our world by demonic forces that are hell-bent on destroying our Judeo-Christian culture and values. The “day of the Lord” can’t be far away.

Amazon, the second largest private employer in the United States, says it now backs legalizing marijuana nationwide. For the Antichrist to rule most effectively-the more people on drugs the better. Make no mistake–marijuana is a mind-altering, mood-altering DRUG!

Now you find BLM and LGBTQ flags flying, right along with the American flag, over government buildings around the world. The U.S. has become a shame and embarrassment. The more they are in social chaos over gender and race relations the easier it is to turn our society upside down and transform our world to a demonically lead empire.

The day of the Lord can’t be far away!

“Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20b

Ephesians 1:10 (KJV) “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on the earth; even in Him.”

Changes are coming very soon. But not the changes the left in our world think. In the political void being experienced in the United States and Israel, a huge demonic cloud rises, and, for the most part, people don’t notice or simply don’t care.

Proverbs 24:21-22 “My son, fear the Lord and the King; do not associate with those given to change; For their calamity will rise suddenly, and who knows the ruin those two can bring?”

“God’s appointed time” is near and change is coming!

Russia is anything but quiet today on the coast of Syria. Russia has a base there and has extended the runway. Why? Because now they have flown into Syria with their new super-sonic bombers. Why would they need these new super-sonic bombers in Syria? Only one logical answer comes to mind–a plot. A plot that will transform the Middle East into a war zone. Iran is in deep economic trouble, and they know that to fulfil their end time dream they need help. Nothing has gone right to further their goal, from explosions in petrochemical plants to the destruction of their new prized warship. Their anger continues to mount toward Israel.

You may not hear much from the mainstream media on Turkey, but they also are in economic trouble. Their interest rate is now at 19% and their currency continues to lose value. Turkey needs a war to turn things around. Where are all three of these countries located right now? Israel’s northern border.

God’s appointed time is sooner than you think.

Roy’s Blog: “Your Passport”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4587(opens in a new tab)

Romans 8: 37-39 “Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Is your passport to heaven stamped? There is nothing more important! The things we see happening in our world are terrible. They are a very hard pill to swallow for those of us who love righteousness, but we can find comfort in the perfect plan of God for us. The Bible tells us it will be bad even before time for the rapture…but not near like it will be after the church is taken away. You don’t want to be here then. Do you? The rapture is very near. You need that passport! No, not the Covid one. The one that says you have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

Russia, Turkey, and Iran are emboldened by the new Biden administration’s policies. And, now it appears there will be a new administration in Israel that will move Israel from a nationalist mentality to a globalist way of thinking. The new administration is leaning toward legalizing marijuana use and the promotion of same-sex marriage, among other “progressive” ideas. It will also give the Muslim Brotherhood in Israel a foothold in government for the first time in history.

The slogan and name of this new government in Israel will be “Change”. And indeed things will change very quickly.

Get your passport out of here stamped! Before it’s everlastingly too late!

Roy’s Blog: “A Sign”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4583(opens in a new tab)

Matthew 24:44 “You must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.”

Iran’s largest navy ship has sunk! It caught fire near the Strait of Hormuz under unclear circumstances. The Kharg, named after an island nearby that serves as a key oil terminal, caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday local time and more than 20 hours of rescue operations failed to save it.

The circumstances surrounding the fire were unclear. But, there was a humiliating truth: someone acted on Israel’s behalf. This was a terrible loss to the Iranian military who is exploiting every opportunity to overthrow Saudi Arabia and destroy Israel. It was a military ship that was the pride of Iran, now destroyed by an internal fire right off their coast in the Gulf of Oman.

This comes only one day after the crash of an Iranian F-5, killing two pilots. Tensions are very high in the Middle East.

Even so, Iran is still feverishly moving toward their ultimate goal of ushering in the “12th Imam”. Why do you care? Why would it be important to you?

This is all a sign: YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NEAR! Matthew 24:44 “You must be ready…”

Roy’s Blog: “Front Row Seat”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4579(opens in a new tab)

Jeremiah 33:14a,15 “‘Behold, the days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the good Word which I have spoken…’ ‘In those days and at that time I will cause a Righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.'”

Today, we have a front row seat to staggering world events. In a world filled with uncertainty and hopelessness, what a privileged people we are as those who know God. It is because of that relationship we not only know what the future holds for the world, we know what lies beyond the veil for us in the eternal city.

Soon, as the body of Christ, we will “put on immortal, incorruptible bodies” and forever be with the Lord. We don’t know the exact day or hour, but we know, going by all the signs, it has to be soon “even at the door”.

We know:

The Jews are back in the land.

The times are perilous.

Sound doctrine is not endured.

Jerusalem is a burdensome stone to all nations.

The moral climate of the world is as it was in the days of Noah.

This all means the Tribulation is not far off, and the Rapture of the Church could happen at any moment!

“EVEN SO COME, LORD JESUS!”
