We have had a fairly mild winter here in N.W. Iowa, but today it is proving to be much more like winter. We started out with really cold temps in the low single digits and around 11:00 am the snow was lightly starting to fall here. At 1:30 pm the snowflakes had grown in size and the wind had come up. I saw our mailman arrive and so I got myself bundled up and walked out to the mailbox. I had to walk into the wind and snow. I went and started my car in the garage and let it run for 15 minutes until it was warmed up. It was only a high yesterday of lower single digits and so I wanted to make sure when I need it in a couple of days it will start for me. When I walked back to the house from the garage it had snowed in my foot prints. It is really blowing hard now and the snow is mounting. I took some photos of my view out my office window and have included them here. It is difficult to see the flying snow, but it is bad enough we cannot see the neighbors that live half a mile from us here.
I have been reading more and more about preachers and lay people stating that a Pre-tribulation Rapture is a lie. It is very evident to me that there are a lot of false teachers and wolves in sheep’s clothing trying to convince people Jesus is not coming for them and they will have to go through God’s wrath on earth for those who have no chosen to accept Christ into their hearts. Shame on them! I would not want to be those who have led people astray by their lies and deception when they stand before Christ on Judgment Day! We are living in the age of false prophets more so than ever and it is all because Satan wants to deceive people and keep them from a solid relationship with Christ. Always, always check what others say against God’s Word and always question what you are being told. If it is in the Bible and it is sound teachings – embrace that, but there are many out to deceive you. “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
How do I know there is going to be a Pre-tribulation Rapture? My Bible has many verses that tell me so. I have over the years questioned the Rapture and the truth of whether Jesus will return for me before the Tribulation, but I am now solid in the belief that He will return for me and the rest of the Church (believers in Christ) before He pours out his wrath on this world that has gone so deep into sin and rebellion against God.
It states in 1 Thessalonians 5:9 – “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” If you have accepted Christ into your heart and believe He is who He says he is and repented of your sins – this verse tells us that God hath not appointed you to wrath. The Church has to be removed before the Antichrist can rule – thus all those who believe in Christ will be spared from God’s wrath. DO NOT BE LEFT BEHIND!
* Mark 13:32 – “But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” None of us know what hour God will return for The Church, but His Word tells us He will and gives us signs of what to look for before it happens.
* 1 Thessalonians 5:2 – “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” A thief in the night – when the Church leaves the earth I am certain many will wonder where people have disappeared to and many may believe UFO’s took us away, but those who thought they were right with God will know and will mourn.
In 1 Thessalonians 1:10 – “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” We will meet Jesus in the clouds – rapture means to RISE!
* Luke 21:36 – “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Is your heart and soul ready for Christ to call you to Him and to save you from the coming wrath of God? Have you been searching and seeking something that will fulfill your life? Christ is the answer – He knows all about you and understands what you have been through – He wants only to help and heal your brokenness!
* Matthew 26:64 – “Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”
* Matthew 24:27 – “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
* Matthew 24:30-41 – “…and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. “Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.”
* “I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” (Luke 17:34-35)
* Revelation 4:1 – “After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
* Revelation 3:10 – “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
* 1 Corinthians 15:52 – “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (the Church).”
* Revelation 1:7 – “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindred’s of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
Remember the story of Noah and then of Sodom and Gommorah? These are both times that Luke 17:26-30 talks about – they are both reminders to us that people were given a choice to get on the ark or leave the cities of Sodom and Gommorah, but many did not leave and they went on doing as they had always done, but a flood came and destroyed all on the land except Noah and his family. Again in Sodom and Gommorah many were given the opportunity to leave these cities, but fire and sulfur rained down from heaven because of the rampant sin and turning backs on God was taking place. Two events in the history of this world happened just as the Tribulation will happen. God is calling you to change your heart and mind in regards to HIM – will you ignore his call or will you answer it and turn your life over to Him? Time will soon run out, as it did in both these events and I pray you will change your heart and mind towards God before it is too late.
There will be people who tell you that the Rapture of the Church is not for real, that there is no God or heaven, that you will have to go through the Tribulation – they are lying to you and whatever you do – DO NOT LISTEN – they are false prophets working for Satan to lead you astray and keep you from God! They may mix some Bible verses into the mix and make it sound convincing, but always check what someone says against the Bible – it tells the truth!
Here are three videos by Jack Van Impe about The Rapture and where in the Bible the verses can be found to support that the Rapture is true and will happen and there is a coming day of Tribulation for those left behind!
ARE YOU READY FOR CHRIST’S RETURN FOR THE CHURCH – DO NOT BE LEFT BEHIND??
Here are videos to watch about the first book Rabbi Jonathan Cahn wrote and has spoken about. On the anniversary of 9/11 – you will learn that it was a warning from God and the verse he uses is in Isaiah. Truly eye opening how the verse in Isaiah is so clear with what happened on 9/11 as he explains the connection America has with the verse about ancient days. What connection does it have to present say America and what does it all mean – listen to how he explains this – nothing short of amazing that it applies to America today and America’s future. Enjoy!

Recently I read that it was revealed that scientists and others at the CDC covered up that the MMR vaccine caused autism in Black babies who received them. Today I read that vaccines may cause a reduction in our population and Bill Gates states this in a video that is included in an article I received in my email this morning. Apparently there is a virus that has been attacking children in multiple states and some have received intensive hospitalization because of this. They are questioning if it is being brought into this country by illegal immigrants or questioning if it is from vaccinations. Here is a link to the article and here is the link to the video where Bill Gates is all for using vaccines to reduce the worlds population. It makes you wonder if you should ever get another flu shot or have your children immunized or any other medical assistance after reading and hearing this.
Video of Bill Gates – you may think he is speaking solely about CO2, but at the very end of this he reveals what he really means and he has supported population reduction for years.

Earth is becoming a scarier place!
These are videos that Jonathan Cahn made where he is talking about his new book – The Shemitah. This is an extension of his first book The Harbinger and it is just as interesting. He will explain these Jewish holidays or dates have significance in America today and as you will see as he explains, many things have happened already in the past that are affecting our economy and America is involved in this because it was set up as a Christian nation and we are under the same expectations as God had for Judah. Listen and see what Messianic Jewish Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has to say about the 7 year Shemitah that has been happening in America every 7 years since September 11, 2001. Will America experience the same wrath from God that Judah saw in ancient days and what kind of things can America expect since it has turned its back on God and has not repented and restored its relationship with God? Truly amazing that certain days things have happened and it is a repeat of the Shemitah as it was in ancient days for Judah. ENJOY!!

The Mystery of the Shemitah (Jonathan Cahn)
Comment copied from chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/562077/jewish/Shemitah-101.htm: Solar Eclipse to coincide with Elul 29 / September 13, 2015. …So, the last day of the Shemitah is September 13 (Elul 29) in 2015, which is also the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah). There is a partial solar eclipse that day visible in southern Africa and Antarctica. Two weeks later on 28 September 2015 (Succot – Feast of Tabernacles) is a total lunar eclipse (sometimes called a Blood Moon for its reddish hue). Interestingly, six months earlier exactly on Passover (April 4 2015) there is another total lunar eclipse. Two weeks before that is a total…

I saw a video the other day and it moved me to share it here.
We all have a story to tell, but often times we do not want others to know about our past. They might not like us or they might sit in judgment of our choices or how we choose to live our lives. But there is not one of us who is perfect and we all make mistakes. In God’s eyes not one of our mistakes or choices is worse than another – although by the world’s standards there seems to be a measuring device where others decide one sin is worse than another, but that is simply not how God views it. Sin is sin, bad choices are bad choices, we all make them in our lives and we all unfortunately live with them and sometimes the weight of them gets very heavy and the burden gets so heavy we cannot carry them anymore. We might think we are not good enough for God and that He might reject us too, but He is not that way!
God has an answer for anything that we struggle with or ails us and we can have a new life if we choose to accept Him into our hearts. He wants to relieve you of the load you carry, He wants to take the weight of your past choices and mistakes and replace them with Him. He does not want you to carry the weight of that any longer, He only wants good things for you.
In 1 Peter 5:7 it states, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” If you feel that no one cares, He does!! If you trust in God, this is His promise to you: “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.” “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11.
In Psalms 31:7 He tells us: “I see your hardships and I care about your suffering.” In the world today there are so few people who care about what happens to others, most are thinking about themselves only and they do not even see the people who are hurting and need a friend, a shoulder, a hand up, a way out of their life choices and they pass by them every day in their travels.
Please watch the video and see that it does not matter what you have been through, what you are going through now, what you cannot seem to get free from, what you cannot overcome and see that others have found an answer to those problems and are free of what kept them from experiencing life as God intended.
Please feel free to share if you would like! I am praying for those who are struggling with bad choices or life circumstances that have you doubting whether God cares – asking that God will show you that life is not hopeless and there is joy in knowing Him! God Bless all who read this.
4 cups of raw broccoli florets
2 cups of red, seedless grapes
1 small onion chopped, optional
1/2 cup of fresh sliced celery
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 tbsp. white vinegar
2 tsp of sugar
3 bacon strips cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup salted sunflower seeds
In a bowl combine the broccoli, grapes, celery, and onions. In another bowl mix the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. Pour over the broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with bacon and sunflower seeds and stir to mix those in. Refrigerate so the dressing has time to chill, about 2 hours. Serves 6.
If you need more, just double the recipe for your family or gathering. This salad has been one that a lot of people love. It is refreshing and very tasty!! Some like to use cauliflower rather than the broccoli or you can use half broccoli and half cauliflower, whatever you prefer! Enjoy!!
