Roy’s Blog: “Eye-Opener”

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.”

After illegal Jordanian occupation that lasted from 1948 to 1967, Israel took control of the Temple Mount when it unified Jerusalem during the Six-day War. For the first time in modern history the Temple Mount was in Israel’s hands. Then Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan, in a gesture intended to help keep the peace, decided to allow the Muslim Waqf to maintain control over the Temple Mount.

Dayan’s surrender of oversite of the Temple Mount has been criticized bitterly over the years because it allowed the Muslim religious authorities to restrict Jewish and Christian visitation to the Temple Mount as well as prayer and religious symbols to be displayed. Every Jewish administration has followed those restrictions until now.

The new Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett, mandated the security forces and police must “maintain freedom of worship for Jews at the sacred site on the Temple Mount.” This is an eye-opener! Changes are continuing to happen in Israel are the surrounding countries.

Keep your eyes open and your ears tuned so that you will understand when you read the prophecies in the Bible.

Matthew 24:44 “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.”

Everywhere I look around the globe, I see unrest. From people in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas I see people demonstrating, looting, burning, and crying out for change and governments struggling to quell the unrest.

What does it all mean? Why are these things happening? They all point to just how close we are to the rise of the man of sin (the Antichrist) and the global government that will bring false hope to a world in darkness. They will accept it hoping for a fix to the global unrest.

Also, I see how near we are to the “Blessed Hope” of the Bride of Christ. The Rapture! The voice of hope is calling out our names with love and comfort. Jesus said, “Let not your hearts be troubled.” “I’m coming, I’m coming soon!”

Even so Lord Jesus, come!

Today is my birthday. Could today be that day? What a birthday present!

Matthew 24:6a,8 “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

There is, reportedly, a video circulating among Chinese Communist Party channels threatening to unleash a “continuous” nuclear war on the world. The statement threatens, “When we liberate Taiwan, if Japan dares to intervene by force, even if it only deploys one soldier, one plane, and only one ship, we will not only return reciprocal fire but also start a full-scale war against Japan.”

In another article it is reported, China is building 120 new silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), sparking concerns of a Taiwan related conflict between China and the United States.

The “second seal” of Revelation 6:4b says, “…it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another, and a great sword was given unto him.”

Jesus said, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.” Matthew 24:6

If you’ve ever headed to El Paso, Texas at night, you can see the light and say “we’re almost to El Paso”…then an hour later you can still see the lights, but you’re not there quite yet. Another hour later the fringes of the town are finally in sight.

With all the things happening today, this is not the end…but get ready. The end is IN SIGHT!

Roy’s Blog: “What’s Going On”

Matthew 24: 8 “All these are the beginnings of birth pains.”

What’s going on? What are we experiencing today? “Birth pains” before the end times described in the Bible.

Extreme weather events are getting worse. One area of the world is hot and very dry, while other areas are flooding with unusually cool weather. This morning July 20th, in East Texas, it was 68 degrees. In July! In the United States we have a massive drought in several western states. They are having to remove boats out of harbors where they are stored in certain areas because there is not enough water to support them. While in the northeast there is flooding due to the abundance of rain. Parts of the country are having unseasonable cool weather while others are sweltering under unusually hot weather. I can’t imagine 120-140 degree temperatures.

But, it’s not just in the US; it is around the globe. Germany and China have record flooding, while in Australia and Russia have extreme heat waves and drought.

All these extreme weather conditions are attributed to “global warming” or what they now call “climate change”. They want to say it’s man causing these things by their “carbon footprint”–their use of fossil fuels. But Jesus said that calamitous events would come as a warning sign of the last days. They would get worse over time, like a woman having birth pains. This is what’s going on in the world. This is what we are experiencing. So…be warned. The Rapture could come at any time.

You are warned so you have time to get ready!

Roy’s Blog: “Uncharted Waters”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4767(opens in a new tab)

Psalm 91:1-2 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

The world is in crisis unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetime and it’s steadily getting worse. Wild extremes in weather with record breaking temperatures, floods, disease, and volcanic activity…the list goes on and on. Are you surprised? If you read the Bible, you shouldn’t be. It is all outlined within the pages from Genesis to Revelation. It even tells you how to avoid the final outcome. (John 3:16)

Salt and light are so desperately needed in this world lost to sin. Paul wrote long ago, “There will be terrible times in the last days.” Uncharted waters on every side. For many–nowhere to turn for solace. But Paul also offered these eloquent words of encouragement during these trying days, “The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5b,6-7)

Roy’s Blog: “A Sad Day”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4763(opens in a new tab)

Lamentations 3:40 “Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the Lord.”

This Sunday is considered the saddest day on the Hebrew calendar, Tish B’Av (the ninth of Av) is a day of fasting and mourning because of the five events which took place (in different years) on this day.

  1. The twelve spies that Moses sent to spy out the Promised Land returned ten of whom balked at entering the land because they feared the giants there. This led to forty years of Israel wandering in the wilderness.
  2. The First Temple, built by Solomon, was destroyed by Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC. The surviving population was then sent into exile.
  3. The Second Temple, built by Zerubbabel and expanded by Herod the Great, was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.
  4. At the same time Jerusalem was utterly destroyed.
  5. The Great Bar Kokhba Revolt by the Jews was crushed in 135 AD, by the Roman General Sextus Julius Severus. The rebellion led to Emperor Hadrian changing Judea’s name to Syria Palestina and Jerusalem to Pelia Capitolina.

The GOOD news is, God never forgets His promises and His people! Even when things are at their darkest. God remembers.

After all those dark centuries when the Israelites were scattered with no homeland, they now have their home, their nation…Israel, and their capital is Jerusalem! Praise the Lord!

God is true to His word, even for America, “If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

2 Thessalonians 2:6 “You know shat restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.”

Get ready! More is coming. We may soon see “climate lockdowns”. Now we have the lockdown model, the globalists Marxists will use it. If they can mandate national face mask use and virus restrictions, they can shut everything down for “climate emergencies” which they refer to as an “existential threat.”

Throughout our land from cars, to power plants, to thermo-states, and more, government mandates are controlling every facet in their move toward the worldwide “reset”. We will be seeing a new lockdown to “save the climate’. One hint that I heard mentioned is that children are “climate disasters”. (Less babies born–less people to pollute the earth). Which the Biden administration is set to cure by the United States tax dollars going to pay for abortions around the world. Don’t say no way. He’s already proposed exactly that.

Think for a moment…if our government declared a national climate emergency, the powers that be would be unleashed to control every aspect of our lives. you would not be free to move about as you want, your water usage would be controlled, your power would be regulated to how much they think you should use (heat and air would be adjusted by them), and your food consumption would be controlled. Is this the reason the United Nations has been invited by a member of our government to monitor the United States? Remember the UN has a global army. (BAD decision on America’s part…very bad!)

We are only a pen stroke away from these changes. Get ready!

Ezekiel 38:13a “Sheba and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, art thou come to take a spoil?

This last Wednesday, the United Arab Emirates opened their embassy in Tel Aviv. You’ll never guess where? The UAE celebrated the opening of its embassy in the same building as the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange in Israel.

There are riots in Cuba (for freedom), riots in Lebanon (because of economy), and riots in South Africa (because their leader of the freedom fighters had been arrested). All this with the transgender takeover of society, and the crazy and relentless push for the governments of the world to force the entire population to receive the Covid vaccine or else they expel you from society, it’s easy to overlook something like the peace accords between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, and others.

Countries are aligning with Israel because they know the United States will no longer come to their aid. The peace accords (initiated by President Donald Trump) are continuing quietly, behind the scenes. Embassies are being built. Commerce is going on between the countries and Israel.

But, you still have other countries that are eying Israel because of their wealth, their technology and research. New sources of oil and gas also fuel the driving forces behind these countries. Their is no mistaking the groundwork for the great “end-time spoils” in Israel is happening today!

Roy’s Blog: “A World Gone Mad”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4752(opens in a new tab)

Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You.”

Madness! Yes, it is happening around the globe.

Get the vaccine…yet nothing changes. The vaccine has an efficiency rate of over ninety percent but nothing changes in the demands of the globalists around the world.

In Cuba, the people risk their lives demonstrating for freedom, even waving the world-wide symbol of freedom…the American flag. And, the American government is silent toward their plight. It is a world gone mad.

Cities burn, innocent people are killed, yet, political leaders want to defund the police, empty the jails, and open the borders to illegal, harmful drugs, and sex traffickers. It’s a mad, mad world.

In this world gone mad, there is a light. There can be found perfect peace in keeping your mind steadfast on the Lord. He is coming to take those who have trusted in Him out of here. We may be seeing the beginning of the chaos, but we won’t be here for the worst of it (the Tribulation). The chaos will continue (and get worse after we are gone) under the Antichrist in a new world order. But, we won’t be here!

If you have family, friends, co-workers whose lives haven’t experienced the transforming power of Jesus Christ, tell them, exhort them, cajole and beg them to come to Jesus now, before it is too late.

Roy’s Blog: “Agenda 2030”

https://bphowlett.wordpress.com/?p=4749(opens in a new tab)

2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires.”

What does Agenda 2030, Critical Race Theory, Green New Deal, and open borders all have in common? The “Great Reset”. The implications of the Great Reset are huge. It espouses socialism and a centralized global government that is godless. It is surrendering to a New World Order which is the Antichrist’s global empire ultimately ruled by Satan.

For the globalists to implement this one world system, they must get rid of all obstacles that hinder globalism. Today it is all under the umbrella of the World Economic Forum. Nobody can be a nationalist and be a part of this movement to a new global government. (American nationalism, capitalism, and yes our freedom must be eliminated.)

Their goals are many but here are a few:

1. Eliminate national sovereignty and independence

2. Replace the free enterprise system (what America was built on)

3. Usher in a cashless system with universal income

4. Abolish Christianity (and it’s values)

All of this and many other things are on their agenda to be done by 2030. When you hear the word globalism, don’t think of world unity…think OPPRESSION.

I want to be out of here before these things come to pass. I’m ready for the Rapture of the church. Are you? If not, you better get ready!

We are told in 2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”
