Weak Side - Surprise Attacks

In sports - a weak side is defined as the side of the field where there are fewer players to defend the ball.  In life, it's where we are vulnerable.



I was ill this weekend.  Not seriously but enough to keep me in the house and on the couch, doing nothing.  My neck hurt so bad it caused a headache and as tired as I was, I could not sleep.  My weaknesses all amplified by an illness.  I chalked it up to excessive travel and a grueling work schedule; I thought I was just exhausted.

This morning, I found out a colleague I'd traveled with last week was also sick, her symptoms a bit different but it had attacked her weak side.  My son was sick this weekend, different symptoms but it had attacked his weak side.  Coincidence?  Maybe, or just maybe we'd all been hit with a virus that went manifested where we are weakest.

Isn't that how spiritual attacks go?  The enemy zeroes in on our weak side.  Our most vulnerable is where the attack comes in.  Our children, our health, our jobs, our self-esteem, our security... that is where we can expect to be attacked.  The strategy is brilliant because it can go undetected, we expect to be attacked there, life is hard.  I'd ask you to take a moment though and look deeper, is it everyday life or is this an assault by the enemy?  If it is, then friends, you must stay strong and pray in the Spirit.  Pray the full armor of God and go to battle against the enemy.

If you are feeling defeated, I'd ask you to prayerfully consider that the Devil understands not only your weak side but the weapons of warfare.  He employs his own countermeasures against us, if you are struggling, please read Counterterrorism in the Spiritual Realm.

A Letter for Those Left Behind


Psalm 39:4 “Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is.”

Rapture Box
The saddest thing that will ever occur is a soul that dies without Christ.  There comes a point in every person's life where they either accept or reject the free gift of Salvation that was purchased for them at the cross by the blood sacrifice of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

There was a time limit on this Age of Grace.  We do not know the exact hour or day when it will end, but the ancient Scriptures are quite clear about the signs.  Careful study shows that we are in that time.

The Age of Grace is when mankind could freely receive the gift of salvation and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, it coming to a close.  As I write these words the hour is late.

I am not a prophet and I do not claim to have secret knowledge or insight into the vast mysteries of the Lord.  I am a simple woman who inherited a love of Bible prophecy and was given a modicum of talent for writing.  As such, I felt compelled to prepare a letter for my friends who would be left behind at the Rapture of the church.  I did this originally in 2015, but given that so much has happened in the last two years, I have been compelled to update it.  I share this with you today, in the hope that you might print and share a copy as well.

Dear Friend,

If you are reading these words, we are gone.  Peace be with you.  You will need that peace to carry you through what you are facing.  

Jesus tells his disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27).  

I pray for you: “Lord, please comfort my Friend.  Please send your presence upon them now, please open their eyes and enable them to read and understand the words you have had me write.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”

Please do not worry about where we are, we are safe and secure with the Lord Jesus.  No matter what you are being told, hold fast to that truth, your eternal soul depends on it.

This letter is going to be the most straightforward and frank piece that I’ve ever written, for the time has passed for smooth words that cajole and coddle.  You are in dire straits and the words I am about to write are the only way to save your eternal soul.  

The Church and with it the restraining goodness of the Holy Spirit on this Earth is gone. 
A Pure, Righteous and Holy God is about to begin the Judgement of His Creation. 
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is giving the Nation of Israel one last chance to return to Him.
 
You must pick a side
.

I am sure that the world is spinning in chaos now with the disappearance of so many people.  Whatever you have heard, do not believe it.  Jesus has returned to take His people to Heaven and the much-anticipated Rapture has occurred as was foretold in the Scriptures thousands of years ago.  

The Great Disappearance

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 because the Lord himself, in a shout, in the voice of a chief-messenger, and in the trump of God, shall come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we who are living, who are remaining over, together with them shall be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in air, and so always with the Lord we shall be.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 lo, I tell you a secret; we indeed shall not all sleep, and we all shall be changed; in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trumpet, for it shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed:

I am deeply sorry that you were not with us, I cannot imagine the fear and chaos that has come upon the world after millions of Christians and all the babies and small children have instantly disappeared.  

Your Last Chance

Have no doubt, these events have been established by God since the foundation of the Earth was laid.  He has a specific purpose for His Creation and you have just witnessed the greatest sign and obvious fulfillment of prophecy ever given to mankind.  You can either accept it or reject it, the choice is yours but do it now because if the window is open, it will close quickly; this letter may be your only chance.

If you have heard and rejected the Good News of Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ before the disappearances, you are in the gravest peril imaginable.  

There is a chance, it is already too late and that these words I am writing to you are in vain but I must try.  

In your heart, you did not believe that “for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Jesus will not die but have everlasting life.”  (John 3:16).  

God will be sending a powerful delusion to those who have heard and rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ.  (2 Thessalonians 2:11) If you do not repent and accept Jesus and your savior, you will believe the lies.  You will not be able to resist.  Once that happens, you are lost forever.

It is not scriptural, but there is an old Jewish tradition called the Days of Awe which says that on Rosh Hashanah the Lord will write the names of the Redeemed in the Book of Life.  People whose names are not written in the book have a grace period of ten days, to repent and profess their faith in God, and by their actions of faith to "appeal" the verdict.  The final determinations are made and the book is sealed on Yom Kippur. 

Many Christians in the prophecy community look for the Rapture of the Church to happen on Rosh Hashanah if that timing were to happen on that day then perhaps God in His mercy will grant this brief time for repentance for those left behind.  I pray that He does.

Why Has This Happened:

To truly understand what you are facing, you must go back to the beginning.  In the time before recorded Scriptures, there was a rebellion in Heaven.  This rebellion was led by Lucifer, who recruited one-third of the angels to fight with him against the Almighty.  At some point afterward, God created the Heavens and the Earth as it exists today.  He created a perfect, sinless paradise and populated it with an image bearer, Adam and Eve. 

Among the perfection of Eden; enter the Deceiver; the Hater of all that is good and pure and wholesome. This envious monster loathed Adam and Eve with an unmatched fury because he hated the Almighty.  He looked upon the earth and coveted it.  He could not take it by force, his war in the Heavens had taught him that, but he could steal it.

He would have to make the man rebel.  Satan knew that if the man sinned against God that the glory and protection that allowed Adam to walk with God would depart.  Subsequently, God would not be able to be near Adam without destroying him.  God would have to leave the Earth and the Devil could take over.

His plan worked.  God is a just God and I believe that Satan knew enough about God's ways and justice to understand what was at stake and how God would HAVE to react.  Satan understood the rules; I don't pretend to but this is what I think.

I believe that by causing man to sin, Satan did not receive the Earth, but some type of lease on it.  Some say this is a 6000-year period, but it is clear Satan is allowed to rules for a time.  He is described as the prince of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4) and Jesus does not refute his claim when He was being tempted in the desert (Matthew 4:8-9).  Thus, in a manner of speaking, Satan has a lease on the Earth, but leases end.

Satan received a lease to this planet, the lease is up and the true and rightful owner is taking the Earth back.  Christ redeemed not only mankind at the cross, but God’s claim and dominion of the Earth. 

Blood Sacrifice and the Cross

We do not have any concept of blood sacrifice but it is fundamental to God’s justice. 

Since we have been talking about the Garden of Eden, let me pick up where we have left off, after the fall.

We know that when Adam and Eve sinned, they realized they were naked.  I believe it is because the glory of the Lord no longer covered them, they were ashamed and tried to hide and cover themselves with leaves.  They were trying to cover their sin, yet mere leaves and their own efforts could not protect them from what they would face.  That is why your efforts to be a good person have found you in the quandary you are in now, you could not cover your own sin.

The Bible says that God himself killed an animal and fashioned clothing for them, thus the blood covered their sins.  A sacrifice of blood covered their sins but did not restore their former glory to them.  They were still alive, but no longer had fellowship with the Lord.  Their sin had caused death.

Between Eden and the cross, the Lord instructed His people to sacrifice animals as an atonement for their sins.  The Old Testament rituals were very important because it was a legal and spiritual act that the priests were performing, but it was imperfect and had to be repeated over and over.  We see that in the garden, the sin was covered but the glory was not restored; we were still cut off from God.

In God's perfect way, He provided the sacrifice.  A perfect man, fully God and fully man, to redeem mankind and redeem the Earth.  So He came to the Earth, he lived this painful life of a man in a fallen and hurting world.  He allowed himself to be beaten, scourged, and crucified that each precious drop of His blood was the sacrifice perfect justice demanded.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

For 2000 years, this invitation has been open to all mankind.  A gift bought at a great price, but there was a time limit on the Age of Grace and that time ended with the Rapture of the Church. 

Now the Judgement Begins.

This seven-year period known as the Tribulation is set aside to bring the Jews back into relationship with God and to judge the nations over how they have treated Israel.  This is also the judgment of Satan and his fallen angels and their eviction from the Earth. 

If you value truth, believe what I say to you.  Perilous times are ahead.  The painful fact is that most people that remain on the earth today will die over the course of the next 7 years.  Odds are, you and your family and friends that remain will not survive to the Second Coming of Jesus.

What is coming upon the earth is well documented; from the time Israel signs the peace treaty with the man of sin, the clock will start on the final 7 years.  There may be a lag time between the Rapture and the treaty, but we are told in Scripture that this period will be the most horrific ever recorded.

Pray this Prayer to be Saved:

To avoid eternal damnation in the fires of Hell and get to Heaven, you must pray this prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus - I am sorry that I have hardened my heart to you, I am sorry that I did not believe that you came to save me.  I am sorry that I have tried to find you with my own righteousness.  I am a sinner, please forgive me, Lord.  I confess that I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son, that He died on the cross for my sins, and was raised on the third day.  I believe that there is no other name under heaven or on earth by which we can be saved.  I ask for you to come into my life, to come into my heart, and I ask you to seal me with your mark.  Lord strengthen me for the trials to come.  Create in me a clean heart, oh God, and renew a right spirit within me.  Cast me not away from your presence and take not your Holy Spirit from me.  In my own strength, I can do nothing but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.”

Hold on Tight

If you have prayed this prayer, memorize it and pray it often.  You have been sealed by the Holy Spirit.

You must hold tight to your salvation.  For unlike the church age, this salvation demands obedience, vigilance, and faith.   “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Matt 24:12-13).  

Persecution and great danger will follow, “This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus."

The Parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25 describes what will happen to believers who survive the Tribulation.  Half of them were found to have not retained their salvation.  Oil in that parable is the Holy Spirit, whom you have received a portion of if you prayed the above prayer.

This will be no easy task and many will not make it, I pray you are among those that overcome.

Truth Will Come From Israel

You will need to study the Bible, it is logical to determine that an understanding of the Scriptures you will need to survive this time may have been hidden from us in this Age will be revealed by the Holy Spirit now.  Great teachers that will emerge from Israel. 

The Bible prophecies that the Lord will raise up 144,000 Jews from the Nation of Israel (Rev 7:4) who will proclaim the Word of the Lord.  They will be the truth tellers and the teachers and will understand and proclaim what people must do to retain their Salvation during this time.  They will be the great evangelists and will be protected from the perils to come.

Revelation 11 tells us of two prophets that are sent to Israel that will prophesy at the Temple for 1260 Days.  If anyone tries to harm them they will spew fire from their mouths and consume their enemies.  When their time is finished, the AntiChrist will be allowed to kill them, their bodies will lie on the ground for 3.5 days and all the world will celebrate and give gifts to one another.  Then the Lord will breathe life into their bodies and they will be raised to life in front of the entire world.  He will call them back to Heaven and a great earthquake will shake the city.


Deception Planned for Thousands of Years

The Apostle John is the first to use the term Anti-Christ in 1 John 2:181 John 2:221 John 4:3, and 2 John 7.  It is interesting to note that the term, is only used four times and never in Revelation.  We can see from the above Scriptures that the spirit of Anti-Christ was on the Earth in the 1st century.  This tells us that since the resurrection, the Devil has had a plan in place.  Do you think for a moment that the Rapture of the Church would have caught him napping and not ready to fight his last battle? 

The world will have many stories; Satan and his minions will come with many lying signs and wonders, (2 Thessalonians 2:9) they have prepared for this hour since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden when they received the lease to planet Earth.  Revelation Chapter 5 starts with the breaking of the seals on this lease. 

These fallen angels are powerful beings and will amaze mankind with their tricks, Scripture says that if it were possible they would even fool the very elect.  They will have elaborate explanations as to where we have all gone.

Who They Really Are and What They Will Do

The old Enemy Satan and his demons will demonstrate amazing power and spin false tales.  Satan always tries to counterfeit God.  We see it throughout Scripture but especially in the Book of Revelation where he mimics the Triune God of the Bible with the Beast, the False Prophet, and the Anti-Christ.  Often overlooked are the “disciples”, described in Scriptures as the 10 kings.

A benevolent New World Government will emerge from the chaos.  The Bible says they will organize themselves into Ten Kingdoms (Rev 17:12).  They will claim to be the good guys, they are not.  

We meet these nefarious 10 kings several times in Scripture, (Dan 2:31-35Dan 2:40-45Dan 7:7-819-24Rev 13:1-2Rev 17:3,7) but most explicitly in Daniel 7:24 and then again in Revelation 17:12,16.  

The imagery of Revelation requires an understanding of the symbols, a horn in ancient culture was a symbol of royal power.  It is why today, crowns have spires resembling horns.  The 10 kings, the False Prophet, and the Anti-Christ are all subservient to the Beast who is Satan.  Thus, we have the counterfeit 12 Apostles.

A leader, the Anti-Christ, will emerge from them that will be the most amazing orator, peacemaker, and problem solver the world has ever known.  He will inspire the world and they will fall at his feet.  

It is smoke and mirrors, he is an evil man and midway through the Tribulation will seem to take a fatal wound to the head.  When he rises from the dead, there is no other than Satan possessing him. 

In 600 bc, the prophet Daniel wrote: "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all."  Since the prophet makes sure to include that the man does not desire women, it is reasonable to conclude that this new leader will claim some sort of androgynous status.  His identity remains veiled during the Age of Grace when I write these words but you will soon know of whom the prophet spoke.

A New Religion

The False Prophet will emerge and proclaim the AntiChrist has been raised from the dead and is god.  He will erect a statue to him that will move and will direct the world to worship this leader.  Anyone who refuses will be murdered.    

Commerce and the Mark of the Beast:

All will be required to receive a mark, either on their forehead or their hand that will allow them to buy and sell.  Anyone who refuses the mark will have their body killed, anyone who accepts it is damned to hell forever.  (Rev. 14:9-11). 

Given the revelations of the Equifax massive security breach, roughly half of the American public has had their full credit history, their Social Security numbers, their addresses, and their birthdays stolen.  Couple that with millions of disappearances and there is no conceivable way for the financial institutions to know if you are who you say you are when you go to the bank to claim your money.  Thus, this will be the rationale for a new identification and worldwide payment system and financial system; the Mark of the Beast.  Under no circumstances take this mark, it will doom you to eternal fire and damnation.


Prepare For The Future

I suspect that reference material, books, websites, and bibles will be systematically eliminated.  Find a Bible and keep it with you.  Take it, use it, read it - it will be your most important weapon moving forward.  Go to gracethrufaith.com and print off as much as you can about what is coming down the line, the doctrine and teaching on this site is solid.  RaptureReady.com was designed to survive but recent events even call that into question as they were brought down recently.  If they are up, they will have articles and research.  If you do not understand something, ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom.

Information will be quickly shut down and controlled.  We see this now, Google controls the internet, the satellites, the flow of information.  Facebook has facial recognition software for just about every human on the planet.  Amazon will quickly control commerce.  Our phones have tracked us everywhere we have gone, our cars GPS's pinpoint our exact locations.  The media companies are owned by less than a dozen companies and the entertainment world is poised and ready for propaganda the likes of which has never been seen.  

How it Ends:

Now for the Good news, God wins.  He will triumph over Satan and will usher in His glorious millennial kingdom.  The earth will be restored to its original perfect state, justice, kindness, goodness, and prosperity will blanket the inhabitants.  Many that survive the Tribulation will not die but will have their bodies healed and renewed.  There IS hope.

Weapons of Faith

You can do this and the Lord will help you.  You are no longer on your own, the Holy Spirit will guide you.  

Memorize the Lord’s Prayer:

Matthew 6:9 After this manner, therefore, pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Memorize the Full Armor of God: 

Ephesians 6: 10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 
11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle, you will still be standing firm.
14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 
15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.  
16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.  
17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

I wish I could tell you all that I know but I feel this letter drawing to a close.  I have not gone into detail of the consequences of not choosing the path I’ve laid out for you, I trust that you will not choose foolishly.  Know this, everyone lives forever - this puff of smoke we call life determines whether you will spend it in paradise or whether you will be tormented in the fire, sulfur, and violence forever.

There will be only one source of truth, the Bible.  Cling to it for your life, guard it, protect it - if discovered, it will get you killed but it will save your soul.

Sadly, every day it will get worse.  The Judgements to come upon this Earth will get more severe.  Gather as much, food, water, and medicine and medical supplies as you can.  Download and print as much survival information on how to build shelters, ovens, and purify water.  Stash supplies in varied hiding places; much destruction will befall the world.  You are going to have to be a bad ass to survive.

Make no mistake, you are still here because you chose to be.  There is no one to blame but yourself, don't blame God, and don't blame me.  He has sent you one last lifeline, I've written it, it's up to you to act upon it.  

At some point during the Judgements to come, everyone will believe in God but most will hate Him.  Revelation 16:11 says, "and they cursed the God of heaven for their pains and sores. But they did not repent of their evil deeds and turn to God."  You see He will make Himself known to everyone that none will have an excuse.  I beg you now, to choose the right path.  I love you and I have prayed for you.

In Christ,
Your Loving Friend

Why Can't I Move a Mountain?


As a very small child, I believed in "magic".  There was no line between the natural and the supernatural.  In my basement playroom, the black and white TV perched on a rolling metal cart showed me Jeannie and Samantha and of course, I wanted to be little Tabitha on Bewitched.  I'd make a grand entrance through the gold and brown plastic "jewels" that hung in the doorway. and escape to my secret hideaway in the corner that to the untrained eye was a blanket fort strewn between folding metal chairs.  Down here I went to Neverland and joined the flying children in Peter Pan. Some days, I'd go to Paris and listen to swinging Jazz with the Aristocats.  Then I'd head off to London and laugh with Uncle Arthur and Mary Poppins.  These grand adventures and tales of wonder spun from my Close and Play Record Player, I'd close my eyes and imagine!

Jesus with a Little Girl
My Bible picture books and Sunday School coloring pages told me the fabulous stories of Red Seas parting, giants slaying, and fire called down from Heaven.  Loved and adored by my strong Daddy, the pictures of Jesus surrounded by little children were as natural to me as breathing.  I was His and He was mine.

There was no prayer this good Jesus would not answer, no miracle He would not do, He was wonderous and magnificent and the magic was everywhere.  I believed with all my heart and did not doubt.  So when I heard Mark 11:22-24:  “Have faith in God.  I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours."  This Scripture was tailor-made for a child like me!

All I was Missing Was the Pixie Dust
It didn't work, none of it.  I thought "happy thoughts" while listening to Peter Pan but no matter how I ran and jumped, I could not fly.  I crossed my arms, put my hair in a ponytail, wore my gauzy green nightgown and robe (my Jeannie "costume") closed my eyes and nodded my head as hard as I could but I never shrunk down into the Chianti bottle covered in different color candle drippings (my Jeannie bottle).  I realized that the shows and the records were pretend but Jesus was real.  So why, when I believed with all my heart, did Jesus words not work either?  My Uncle did not walk again and no matter how hard I prayed my Aunt still got a divorce.  Therein lies the rub.
Where magic dies, Faith must fill the void.

How many little children grow into cynical adults because their innocent prayers went unanswered?  How many angry skeptics shake their fists at Heaven and declare, "I prayed to you and my Mother still died!"  How many watchers stop watching because "We are Still Here!"  

Shadows of the Beauty to Come
During this Age, there are no booming declarations from above, no pillars of fire leading the people forth in the Wilderness, no feeding of the 5000, no parting of the Red Seas. There are no overt public miracles, no true healing ministries, no flying mountains!  Jesus himself ushers in the Age, with the last beatitude, John 20:29:

"Blessed are those who have believed and not seen."

This is where childlike imagination has to re-engage; like I did listening to those records.  We can read the words, we can hear the music, but we can not see.  The Lord is quiet, gentle, subtle.  He woos us with kindness and gentleness.  It is the Still Small Voice and the Word that we must rely upon; not emotions and miracles.  We wait in faith and hope without His physical manifestation.  In return, He fills us with the Holy Spirit and seals us with the greatest power in the Universe, Himself.

He is the Magic.  He is the Power.  He has Promised to give His power to us.

Does that make you tremble?  Does that shake you to the core?  Does the weight of your wicked sinful nature desire and fear such a thing?  It should.  Only as an innocent, would a human in the flesh desire such power.  It is for exactly this reason that we have never fully manifested the Power that He promised; we do not move mountains!  Then why does the Bible tells us we should be so much more?

Perhaps because the Church has not Actually Been Born?

Call it what you wish, born, raptured, glorified, sanctified...  one day the Church will be fully and completely aligned with the perfect will of God Himself.  We will do nothing contrary to His wishes.  Listen to Jesus prophecy below:  John 14:12-14

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.  You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!"

Warrior Bride
Maybe that is what Jesus meant in Matthew 18:3 when He tells believers to have faith like a child, find that place of wonder, remember when you believed in the magic, imagine what awaits us.  Maranatha.

The Equifax Hack - Laying the Foundation for Something Sinister


Could the Equifax breach be something far more sinister?

The Equifax revelation that the personal information of 143 million Americans has been stolen by hackers is a catastrophic event.

In perspective, that is 44% of the United States citizens.

Right now, Social Security numbers, birthdates, addresses, and full credit history of almost half of the country is in the hands of criminals.

In my household, my husband and my teenage son are among the number.  My child will face the threat of identity theft for the rest of his life... unless some fundamental change is made to identify and control credit, that is.

What better rationale and logical reason to put forth than to "protect" people from identity theft?  Simply have this invisible tattoo or chip on your hand... then you can buy and sell in complete safety.  

The implant technology is there, it simply faces resistance from the public in what a recent Fortune article called, the "Ick Factor".  What is more likely is some sort of biometric security mechanism that faces none of the public angst that implants do (source).  Afterall, how many iPhone users scan their thumb print dozens of times a day?

Biometric Security Implant
Imagine with me for a moment, a world which is thrown into financial chaos with the disappearance of millions of people.  Identities have already been compromised and with millions gone, there is no conceivable way to know if the person standing before the bank teller is the real Mary Smith or if Mary Smith is one of the millions who has disappeared. 

It just doesn't even seem far fetched any longer.

The Cautious Watcher

The Prophecy Watchers have been on heightened alert for the last 20 years.  We have read the Scriptures, we have watched the Heavens, we have deduced the times.  We have correctly identified thousands of significant prophetic events, compelling numerical distances between dates, extrapolated Hebraic meanings from those numeric dates, and correctly concluded that we are indeed living in the last days.

With the publication of the Harbinger, the discovery of the blood moons and their historical significance, and the availability of free Stellarium software the Watcher community has been on heightened alert since 2008.  As the book of Daniel has been opened, our understanding of the Scriptures of the End Times has multiplied at a breakneck speed, the Holy Spirit has poured out the anointing on His Servants far and wide.

An example of this is the knowledge of the fulfilled Spring Feast at the first coming of the Lord Jesus.  Those of us who have been at it for a while take that revelation for granted these days but I have to stress that a mere 7 years ago even the most ardent and learned of Watchers was unaware of this amazing fact.  I was blown away in 2013 by the Rosh Hashanah Rapture.

Feasts of God
Just prior to the Fall Feast in 2013, the Watcher Community went into overdrive.  I was absolutely part of that movement, albeit on this little blog but I have a loyal following and regular readers and so many of you will remember when that journey began in earnest.  I could effectively compile a list in 2013 of why the Rapture could occur on the Feast of Trumpets that year.  The same held true for 2014.  In 2015, the comprehensive list was so long that it became one of the most visited blog posts in the history of Abigail and Dolley.  We so eagerly awaited Rosh Hashanah 2015, I had a countdown on my computer.  I did a great 30 Days of Birth Pangs series.  My Rapture Box was full, my unbelieving neighbor had a letter and a key to the house (in case the animals don't get Raptured) and we were ready to go!

Then the Lord sent the largest dust storm in modern Israeli history and totally screwed up everyone's "count down" clocks.  We waited, we watched, we moved the countdowns... we kept looking up and then we got through the whole Fall Feast Season 2015 and we were still here.  I do not know of a single, reliable teacher that actually "set the date" but boy oh boy we all sure did hope and pray.  It was hard and disappointing.  Many of us were in a funk for quite a while!

The events have continued to unfold, prophecies are still being fulfilled.  Even the 2016 Fall Feast had a glimmer and good reason behind a rapture that year.  The 2017 Fall Feasts have as many "proof" texts and signs in the Heavens behind them as the 2015 Season did, maybe more.  I love the excitement, I love reading about the Blessed Hope but I am very cautious these days. The Revelation 12 and Birth of the Child being the Church is an interesting and compelling interpretation of Scripture, the times, and is perhaps a unique revelation for such a time as this.  Perhaps, it is not.  It is worth noting that this particular season is marked with a vitriol and division I have never seen within the body of Christ and the Watcher community.

This is where we must be very cautious!  No mystery interpretation should divide believers.  We must not be dogmatic about anything other than the core of the Gospel as expressed in the Apostles and Nicene Creeds

The thing is, the lists we put together in all these years are STILL valid, they still mean something, just like the current signs, interpretations, writings, theories, and hopes do for a final fulfillment in 2017 do.  Friends, I have to encourage you, if we are celebrating Thanksgiving 2017 on this Earth and not hanging out at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, that will be okay, too.

The Key to Understanding Why the Left is Melting Down

Abigail and Dolley readers I was thoroughly confused over the uproar over the President's initial statements about the violence in Charlottesville last weekend. I thought the statements were dignified, appropriate, and diplomatic and just could not understand the hysteria around them. Until I realized that there is a fundamental difference in how both sides view the moral role of the Presidency and Government, everything fell into place, this revelation is the key to understanding what has happened in our current polarized political landscape.

Liberals (who are reasonable rational people that I can discuss things with and enjoy talking with) and their extreme counterparts Progressive Leftist (who are now rapidly evolving into violence) fundamentally believe that the government is a force for good. Thus, the head of the government, the President is the moral head of the nation. The President must be above reproach and as long as he/she is a liberal can do no wrong in their eyes because their motives come from a place of purity, the ends justify the means. Thus, examples of lawlessness by Obama or the Clintons are excused by them (and their media). Like Greek gods, their failings are seen as part of their charms but make them no less worthy of reverence.

Saint Obama depicted with Halo
Conservatives fundamentally believe government is a necessary evil. It should be small and contained. They distrust politicians and power and do not look to political figures to be a moral compass of the Nation. In general, they look to God to serve that role in their lives and the lives of the Nation.  They elect politicians they believe will be effective in making government more effective in the limited role they want it to play.  As long as a candidate seems capable of fixing issues that are important to them, conservatives will overlook personal faults.  Based on these criteria, conservatives will vote for a person they would not personally want to be friends with if they feel they are the best person for the job.

Consider the "thrill up my leg" worship the leftist media had for Obama and why they were completely unconcerned with Hillary Clinton's misdeeds.  Think about the visceral hatred the left had for George W Bush who governed along the same lines as Bill Clinton.  Obama's hectoring lecturing style always made me want to vomit and the Holy Spirit inside of me recoiled at him, yet millions of people nearly worshipped him.  In their eyes, he could do no wrong.  Those same eyes view everything Trump does as evil.

Trump Election Night
So in a moment of crisis, after the Charlottesville violence, the Left wants Obama, their moral leader, who will condemn the things they hate.  What they got was a law and order and equal protection under the law statement from a President who never campaigned or wanted to be the Nation's moral leader, and they completely fall apart. While the Right is scratching their heads and wondering what the heck is going on with the lunatic on TV tearing down statues and crying and wailing about Trump being a Nazi. It all makes sense if you consider how they view the Presidency.

It truly now all makes sense to me! The whole, "Not my President" thing. The hero worship of Obama. The violence, the wailing, and the angst all come from a place of disillusionment and fear so the false narratives have begun! First, it was the Fake News sites created a racist environment that made all the Trump voters come to the polls because we were anti-women and the "fake news" had told lies about virtuous Hillary Clinton. Then, it was the Russians who installed their puppet and stole the election. Now, were are back to Trump being a racist. It is fascinating.  They are living in a mass delusion.

Men are made to worship and adore God, when they reject the true and living God, they will find a false substitute.

There is only one true moral person, only one who lived a perfect life, only one to which to put your faith. He loves you, He died for you, He waits for you to put your faith in Him. Jesus Christ is the moral leader of the world. Don't look to anyone else, ground yourself in this truth and everything else falls into place.

Laws or Men - Who Do You Want to Be Ruled By?


It is the very foundation of our Republic, that we are a nation governed by laws and not ruled by men. 

This is also at the very heart of the issue we see played out before us on the nightly news because one side of the political spectrum embraces this and the other side uses it as a shield to hide the fact that they actually believe the opposite.  Let me explain.  


In the US, equal justice under the law means that all men are held to the same standards and judged and prosecuted under the same laws.  Being popular or being loved has no bearing on the application of the law, social status or position has no deterrent to the equal treatment under the law.

In a society ruled by Men, leaders are above the law.  The laws apply to others.  These leaders can break the laws if they choose to.  If these leaders are beloved, well, if they break the laws they must have a good reason.  Their fans and the power bases that they hold - Law Enforcement, Judges, Media, Academics, Religious Leaders all excuse the behavior of the benevolent leaders and will seek to bury and hide the story, cover it up, or deflect it.  

What about if in a society ruled by Men, if the leader is wicked?  Well then, if he breaks the law there is no one to hold him to account.  He is free to do whatever he wants.  There is no difference between the wicked and righteous man in a society ruled by man, for the judgment of such things in the setting of a civil government are flawed and subject to interpretation.  I might think that Mike Pence is a righteous man but my Muslim neighbor would prefer the Ayatollah Khomeini.  

This is the most dangerous type of rule on the planet, billions have been murdered, robbed, raped, tortured, and starved to death under the Rule of Man.

The Modern Left longs to be ruled by Men.  They were perfectly happy to be ruled by the perceived ultra cool Obama.  They excused every scandal, every blatant violation of the law perpetrated by his administration from Fast and Furious to the illegal ransom payment of cash to Iranians.  The list of outrageous acts that came out of the White House was vast and met with a collective yawn from his supporters and the media.  

Iranian Sanctions and Laws Against Ransom Made this Highly Illegal

Using the same logic, of being ruled by Men, the Modern Left has become absolutely unhinged over the election of Donald Trump.  Their visceral hatred of the man and their confusion over our system of government has led them to the conclusion that he is so wicked that he must have committed a crime for which they can get rid of him.  Thus, while they operate under their belief that we are ruled by Men they try to apply the rules of law to anyone that disagrees with them.  They are manufacturing crimes that never occurred to feed a narrative that he will be gone soon.  It is insane.

All the while, those who maintain that we are still a nation ruled by laws and not men, continue to stew over the abuses we have seen in the last eight years.  So many crimes have gone unpunished, so many people have abused their power and broken the law for their own political gain with impunity that the right has within it a pressure valve that is building daily as they are assaulted with 24 hour news coverage of crimes that never occurred while actual crimes are shrugged off and ignored.  It is a volatile situation indeed.

Shocking Cure for My Mystery Fibromyalgia Muscle Pain


I have been in pain for years!  My Dad called it being "Muscle Bound".  The muscle soreness symptoms fit all the markers for Fibromyalgia.  Sports journals identify it as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).  My natural doctor said my body was inherently tight and suggested that I increase my yoga, we also identified several foods that were increasing inflammation (nightshades and wheat) and causing pain.  The physical therapist said the surgery scars and scar tissue were impeding natural movement and that was creating imbalances throughout the body.

They were probably all right but none of the above totally captured what was going on and neither did a single article on the internet (that I could find), so I here is the story and the surprising way I've received relief.


I begin at the beginning for a couple of reasons, first to demonstrate that this goes back a very long time, second because my Father and Grandfather had the same symptoms so no one thought this was out of the ordinary, finally in all of the possible causes above most of them are adult onset, so we had a mystery.  This aspect is particularly troubling because both of these fine men died in their early 60's of heart failure, could there be a link?  This study raises the troubling possibility.

At about 5 years old, I began having terrible pain in my legs at night.  My Dad called them shin splints and growing pains, he'd rub me down with Ben Gay and put a heating pad in the bed so I could go to sleep.  When I was about 8 years old, I had a particularly hard gymnastics workout.  Two days later I could not straighten my legs and could barely walk.  My Dad put me in a super hot bath and then made me "jog it out".

Exercise regimes were difficult because they caused disproportionate muscle stiffness and soreness that lasted upwards of a week and required massive doses of ibuprofen to function.  The older I got the worse it became.  An hour of light weeding in the garden = one week of pain.  Five Sun Salutations = three days of back pain.  It is almost impossible to motivate yourself to exercise when the result is such agony.

Was it hormonal?  I began looking at "relaxin" the hormone produced largely to relax muscles while you are pregnant.  One researcher has focused on this in relation fibromyalgia pain but his results have been inconclusive.  Hormone research is in infancy so breakthroughs on that front are still to be discovered.

Years ago, Bill Phillips developed a product called Phosphagen Elite and it worked amazingly well for me, but alas Bill sold his company and the product is no longer available.

Was it allergies?  Avoiding nightshades and wheat certainly, plays a role.  This is especially true for a body at rest but it was not the full story.

How about lactic acid?  Most experts think this is the cause of DOMS.  I made an off-hand comment to my natural doctor, "Is there some vitamin that you can give me to make the mosquitoes stop eating me alive?"  He said, well, there actually is a product that will control the lactic acid which is what they are attracted to. Takesumi Supreme.  I took it prior to going into my garden and noticed that not only did the mosquitoes leave me alone but the debilitating muscle soreness seemed to be reduced.  I mentioned it to him on the next visit and he confirmed he saw a decrease in his muscle soreness.  This offered some relief but it wasn't the ultimate answer.

Vitamins and suppliments - there is no doubt in my mind that three years of loving care by my natural doctor helped to bring my body into balance.  Of note, two suppliments seemed to make the biggest difference - Magnesium Citrate and CoQ10.  Those are integral parts of my daily regime but neithere were they the magic element.

At the end of the day, the solution and the "cure" or at least the symptom manager came from the most unlikely place, amphetamines.  Given to my Mother while she was pregnant with me to keep her weight down.  Yes, dear friends, many of your Moms and Grandmothers were given speed to help them keep their weight gain to a minimum in the 1950's to the 1970's (read here).  The implications of this go well beyond what tradition science tells you - it goes deep into the epigenome.  As I began my weight loss journey and my medicine regime I noticed immediately that I could exercise like a normal person.  A small dose of phentermine changed everything.

Gone was the debilitating muscle pain, gone was the post work out stiffness, gone was the need for dozens of ibuprofen pills after a simple work out.  Perhaps it is my specific biology, my specific situation, maybe it is just an answer to years of prayer but since I was never able to find anything online to help me, I thought it was worth a post.  Peace and Love, Friends.
