An Ongoing, Open Email Summarizing One Man’s Walk with Jesus during These Apparent End Times

31 March 2020

Hi y’all,

I hope the following may help in your walk with Jesus or introduce you to Him if you have not yet met Him. Globalists continue through various means to lead the world to a one-world government/economy/religion/etc., likely in our lifetime as discussed below/earlier. It will help bring many to Christ and bring God back into world-focus. I de-emphasized focusing on the news since we know the future, described in the Bible. I now plan to focus on our Creator and His intense desire to restore man, through the gift of His most cherished Son, to the intimate relationship He had with us before Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit. Since retiring from the military in 2015 I’ve been primarily pursuing God. I continue to go deeper in my relationship with Him, this is His desire for mankind now and throughout eternity (Jn 17.3). My growing relationship is of complete dependence upon Him (Jn 15.5) through: fellowship by sitting quietly before Him reading the Bible with the help of His Holy Spirit; worshiping Him, talking with Him, and resting in His care as He leads me (Mt 11.28-30); other Christian brothers and sisters; participation in Bible-preaching, Spirit-led church loving God above all and others as ourselves while sharing the Gospel (Mk 12.29-30, Lk 9.2); various mission trips; imitating Jesus daily while doing life (1Cor 11.1); and studies at Christian universities. Life with God is amazing and sweet. It will be that way eternally (Jn 17.3).

1. God (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit) created us to live a joy-filled life with Him. We were made to be completely satisfied by Him through intimate relationship with Him beginning once we’re saved, and with our brothers and sisters in Christ. The devil deceived Eve, Adam followed her believing God didn’t fully love them, and sin/death entered the world.

2. In the Old Testament God demonstrated that man is evil without a new heart and transformed mind from God and man cannot change his sinful nature and just destination to hell without God doing it for him. Recorded in the New Testament, God gave His only begotten, sinless Son to suffer worse than any man and die and pay the price for our sin for us to be restored to the life God intended for us. The value of His Son is infinite. This tells us how much God loves and values us, if we accept the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins and will follow/imitate Him. God made Himself in flesh to reveal His nature to us (his followers/students, a.k.a. disciples), show us how to live abundantly/be in relationship with God, and pay the price for His disobedient creation so we can again be with Him eternally beginning now (Jn 10.10, 17.3).

3. Those who confess and believe in their heart Jesus is their Lord and Savior (Ro 10.9), i.e., know Him and not just about Him (Jn 5.39-40, Mk 3.14), love/obey/follow Him now (Mt 7.21-23) have eternal life (Jn 17.3), and not just upon our death or Jesus’ return, but at the point of our belief now while living in this world. God gives us a new heart (Ez 11.19) and transforms us by renewing our mind (Ro 12.2) through His Word and fellowship with Him, we learn to completely surrender to His love – selflessly loving God and others while God loves us (Mt 16.24, Lk 9.23), and live by and through the guidance of His Holy Spirit (Ps 143.10, Acts 1.8, Ro 8.14). This is an ongoing process during our life here.

4. During this part of our eternal life with God on earth now, He tells us to share this good news (Gospel) with mankind that they may choose/love/obey Him also. God supernaturally empowers us through His Spirit living in us to confirm His Gospel is from God by healing the sick, casting out demons, resurrecting the dead, prophesying, etc. through us (Jn 14.12, Mt 21.21, Mk 16.15-18), as followers since biblical times have done. God never changes or lies (He 13.8, Mal 3.6, Nu 23.19) and honors His Word (the Bible) even above His name (Ps 138.2). Many friends and I testify to God working through us to heal people and prophesy to show God’s love for them in hope they will believe in and come to know Him. I cannot deny what I know. This is God’s glory alone and His power, love, and sound mind (2Tim 1.7) are available to all who believe and obey Jesus.

5. This life with God brings us peace and joy now, regardless of any painful circumstances, as He conforms us to the Image of His Son before He returns or takes us home to be with Him face to face (1Cor 13.12). Many in the western church in particular believe Jesus will return before the seven years of Tribulation. I don’t believe the Bible necessarily teaches this. If one reads the Bible in context and without pre-conceived thoughts/desires it is possible it is a correct interpretation God will keep us in the world as a light during the Tribulation as He has throughout historic, tragic persecutions of the Church (like Jesus, a living sacrifice) with God/Emanuel being with us to comfort and protect us and not allow us to fall from His hand (Jn 10.28) into eternal wrath in hell (https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/what-is-the-rapture, https://www.desiringgod.org/labs/will-there-be-a-rapture).  We do not have a spirit of fear (2Tim 1.7, He 13.6, Ro 8.15).  Life with God is amazing and the most joy-filled, rewarding life we could ever have. He made us to live it with Him.

Below are some short news snapshots in case of interest.

God bless you, Love you all,
Tim

Breitbart News Headlines (minimally reviewed this year)
Lifestyle Christianity University

Syria and Oil / Empire  Russia is using / working with Turkey (wants to reestablish the Ottoman Empire as a caliphate) to secure and expand into Syrian territory for oil resources and regional influence. Christians, Yezidis, and some non-fascist Islamic Arabs are being displaced and killed in the process. Iran, with its proxies, continues attacks against US and / or coalition forces. The US is repositioning forces from Iraq and deploying additional forces to Syria, possibly in preparation for a pre-emptive strike if necessary in the region and possibly to better manage the growing Russian and Turkish invasion into Syria. Iran will try and fill the void created by the US’ departure from Iraq in order to create a ‘land bridge’ from Iran to the Mediterranean.

Iran  Iran likely continues to funnel its dwindling resources from the illegal sale of crude oil and other contributors to its terrorist operations primarily in the region. In addition to severe economic strain to the country, the Iranian regime is under significant stress from COVID-19, with a likely 12,000 deaths to date, including many evil officials and possibly some family members closest to Khomenei. The Iranian regime will continue conducting attacks against US and coalition forces in the region (most recently by the Houthis in Yemen against Riyadh) to meet its longstanding religious and military objectives as well as distract its populace from critical revolutionary pressure against it. Iran plans to retake control of Iraq. Additionally, the Iranian regime is blaming the US and Israel for the COVID-19 as part of a plan to weaken Iran, likely given growing civil unrest against the regime.

Russia  Reportedly, Russia is willing to lower its oil price to force US shale from the market, resulting in higher oil prices overall. The US response is ‘to be determined.’ Russia knows the US’ growing economic and military power will continue if they don’t cooperate with other US “enemies” (Iran, China, Turkey, European and American globalists, etc.) to weaken the US.

China / Corona Virus (COVID-19)  Reportedly, the virus originated in Wuhan, the location of a Chinese biological engineering facility. There is speculation China biologically re-engineered the earlier strain of the corona virus to be less detectable in healthy individuals and thereby allow them to unknowingly spread the contagion abroad. It’s likely China intentionally did not report COVID-19’s internal spread in China for 2-4 weeks thereby allowing it to contaminate countries abroad and begin incubation. Larger, earlier purchases of incinerators in China and satellite detection capabilities are consistent with indications of the cremation of likely up to 40,000 people who died, some brutally, significantly greater than the less than 5,000 reported by China.

Some believe China is using the virus to slow the growing US economy; detract from China’s operations to assimilate Taiwan into China against the Taiwanese people’s wishes and exercise more control over Hong Kong; and weaken and divide the US populace while they partner with mainstream media, education and entertainment institutions, larger corporations, and some US government officials and bureaucrats, including via their deception campaigns. The World Health Organization (WHO) is directly controlled by China so its information and the proposal by Gordon Brown of the UK for the WHO to enforce management of COVID-19’s spread by overruling countries’ sovereignty is even more detrimental to US national security.

There has been talk of expediting a cashless, world economy to help minimize the spread. World Health Organization management of COVID-19, cashless economies, and Bill Gate’s recent membership as a founder of ID 2020 to implant ID microchips in each human on earth, etc. all point to the globalists’, of which China is a lead country, setting the one-world (new world order) government/economy/religion on an accelerated path of implementation.

China continues development of its military (includes some partnership with Russia) and society to rigidly control its populace (social credit system e.g.), poorer countries around the world in and/or with strategic locations/resources (putting them in debt via Chinese infrastructure development there), and the world in close partnership with global elitists.

Israel  The globalists continue to use many of their same methods against Prime Minister Netanyahu, financing various Israeli institutions to deceive their public. After I believe three elections, PM Netanyahu will finally have a majority in the Knesset to form Israel’s next government. God has greatly prospered the Israeli economy and its power to the advantage of the region and God-fearing people. Israel is God’s chosen people (Dt 14.2) and the “apple of His eye” (Zechariah 2.8).

USA  Nothing has changed with the globalists living in the US headed by Soros, Obama, with support from the Clintons, and Bush’s, and many other government, private, and institutional leaders. They continue with orchestrated plans and attempts to unseat a duly elected US President. Current illegal or treasonous and deceptive attempts include the COVID-19 for destruction of economies and indoctrination of US (and world) populace into socialist/communist governance by curtailing US Constitutionally-granted freedoms, continued impeachment discussions, anything to lie about the accomplishments and efforts of the President and his Administration in order to weaken our country. The globalists’ goal remains control and reduction (abortion, vaccines, disease, etc.) of US population through deceptive media, entertainment, social media, education, government, and business entities. I cannot say it much more clearly, if you prefer to be deceived and lied to, continue watching mainstream media alone instead of also taking advantage of current opportunities to go to the “horse’s mouth” to watch and compare unedited YouTube videos, e.g. the White House YouTube and Twitter channels. You can then assess the speaker’s heart directly instead of relying on in most cases false reporting of what was said. Twitter and other social media platforms are politically censored at times by their leaders, but they don’t regularly do it to President Trump’s feeds. There are emerging alternatives to Youtube and Twitter, including Telegram instead of Twitter.

Synopsis  There is no doubt we live in unprecedented times in which the globalists will continue their coordinated efforts, including with e.g. opportunistic Russia, Iran, and N. Korea, to implement one-world control. They believe continued US power to determine the US’ destiny and US support to freedom-seeking peoples is the last obstacle to them ruling the world. The US presidential election is critical to the US near-term future. They will do anything they believe the populace can be deceived of and will overlook to unseat him. Fortunately, President Trump and his Administration believe in God who regularly helps them, us, and other God-fearing and/or freedom-loving peoples. As we know God will also use the devil’s evil ambitions, e.g. COVID-19, for His purposes also, e.g. to possibly weaken some evil forces. 

I continue to believe Jesus will return in our lifetime given current events in the US and world.  The most important thing we can do now is love and trust God and SHARE Him with others while loving them.

As a Christian, it is an exciting time to be alive to shine brightly for God and deny ourselves for His glory by actively loving and praying for others, especially our enemies. God will use ongoing and future events (including His coming revival in large part led by the youth, He loves to show His love / glory by starkly contrasting it with increasing darkness to enlighten others to His good news of restoration / salvation) to bring many more gentiles, and eventually the remaining Jewish population as prophesied in the Bible, to Himself through us with Jesus.

Hallelujah!

“Satan: I will cause anxiety, fear, and panic. I will shut down businesses, schools, places of worship and sports events. I will cause economic turmoil.

Jesus: I will bring together neighbors, restore the family unit. I will bring dinner back to the kitchen table. I will help people slow down their lives and appreciate what really matters. I will teach my children to rely on me and not the world.”

Excerpt from “Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis, 1942

Reflections on God’s Plan of Salvation

8 April 2019
“God is spirit…”(Jn 4:24) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”(Ep 6:12)evidence: many of the world leaders, including those in the west and apparently the pope, have been seduced by Satan and his evil spirits into satanic-related cults of which in larger part pedophilia and other evil rituals bind them; we need to pray for them. “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”(Mt 5:44).
     …”Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith,…”(He 12:2) – a large part of our walk in this world with the Lord is to teach us to trust Him while relying completely upon Him (faith) to glorify Him; we can do nothing of eternal value without Christ (Jn 15:5)  “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”(1 Co 10:31)
     “I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another…” (Is 42:8) “We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”(1Jn 4:16) – God is sovereign and all He permits is for His glory and our good, to be conformed to Jesus.
     “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Mt 28:19-20). – as commanded, love God above all and others at least as much as we love ourselves especially to include by sharing Him / the Way / His love.
     “…If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you…”(Jn 15:20) “…to live is Christ and to die is gain.“(Pp 1:21) “but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”(1Cor 2:9) – complete joy
     “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”(1Th 5:16-18) – there is no joy as great as that of being with God now & always
 
God is conforming us, whom He called to be His sons and daughters, to the likeness of His Son through this world which He created while He partners with each of our free wills to reveal His glory. We are here to learn and personally know God, to know His beauty, loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness (Je 9:23-24) – i.e., His glory and holiness. We are here to glorify Him and share Him, who He is (His name/truth/love) with everyone, that they may know, receive, and be with Him forever for His glory and their good.
 
All things in God’s creation continue as He prophesied in the Bible thousands of years earlier. None has or ever will be proven wrong.(Is 46:9-10)  As throughout history/His story, we continue to see God’s glory distinguished through the actions of mankind: the continuation of evil closely following prophecy today as described in part in earlier email messages below contrasted by the more life-giving actions of e.g. Trump, Netanyahu, Bolsonaro, and others trying to stop the agenda of the global elitists and inform those deceived by it. Please pray for them and their families. Pray for God to work revival in our hearts!
 
If interested, some of the more recent news / details are listed below this email’s references.
 
What a great lifetime to be alive during God’s plan of salvation, not for the accelerating evil, but to see and be used by God according to His will to personify His contrasting, glorious love, wisdom, and power. Indeed, the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Lord Jesus. (Rev. 22:17)
 
Love,
Tim

NEWS / DETAILS – all roads will ultimately lead to God’s land, the Holy Land, Israel as He intended it and its borders
 
 
Trending Indications, always subject to God’s timing, which we do not know, only the possible season – our lifetime
 
– Possible military confrontation in the Middle East, or a show of force (strength thru economic and military power projection), for political resolutions across the region. Indicators include: reported large build-up of armored vehicles in Kuwait last month; likely disproportionate maritime activity; quiet change in US posture in European theater; more recent public availing of US activity in Africa; pending, possible “Trump Peace Plan.”
 
– Recently reported Iranian-built precision missile factory in Lebanon, periodic destruction of Iranian military presence in Syria threatening Israel, earlier destruction of “terror tunnels” crossing from Lebanon into Israel and Gaza into Israel, other sporadic attacks from Gaza into Israel, likely Israeli requirement to destroy Iranian-backed military capabilities in Damascus in the future which existentially threaten Israel and will lead to a larger, military conflict between Israel (and God) and Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, and Sudan (Is 17:1 and Ez38). Note negative implication of no mention of US in Bible helping Israel despite our strongest alliance with them today.
 
– Data point: Israeli elections are tomorrow. Prime Minister Netanyahu faces the same globalist plotting (led by Macron this time instead of Obama as during the last Israeli elections) and deceit President Trump faced in 2016, but God’s Spirit prevailed in our hearts then.
 
– Ongoing tension between US with Russia and China to assure European security and in western Pacific to assure US and its friends of sovereignty (Taiwan) and free maritime lane transit under international law particularly in view of the S. China Sea. Russian presence in Venezuela. Military technology race, including space-based.
 
– Apparent increase in Russian and Chinese geo-political and economic relations with coordinated, military operations in some regions.
 
 
Outside the US, it remains likely in order to establish a one-world government / “new world order”, the globalists will:
 
continue to destabilize Europe through mass migration, possibly increasing thru ongoing turmoil in Libya and Algeria, maybe also Sudan.
leverage the yet unknown by them (globalists don’t believe or understand the Bible) future invasion of Israel by Russia (since still no new oil gains in ME netting Russia so far a minimum $1B investment loss in Syria as well as Putin’s political capital), Iran (“flat-lining” economy worsened by IRGC-designation as terrorist organization today with resultant US sanctions leading to increased public upheaval against its government regime recently also battered by historic, severe flooding in 25 of its 30 provinces after Rouhani called for Iranians to curse the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia), Turkey (political turmoil and Erdogan imprisoning people after he lost 5 of the nation’s largest 6 cities’ elections), Libya (increased state turmoil due to former Qaddafi general struggling to seize Tripoli), and Sudan (reports of its president fleeing country after massive protests) to establish a false peace in the Middle East eventually proclaimed by the anti-Christ. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only Man, who is also fully God, who will bring lasting peace to Jerusalem.
– implement “climate change” (no longer called “global warming” given the earth’s documented, many-year cycle is apparently shifting cooler now) to further tax and remove its citizenry’s wealth and ability to live freely and determine its destiny.
– move ahead further to blur the distinct teachings of the true and only living God in the Bible with those of other religions while deceitfully changing the Bible’s clearest meaning to create a one-world religion. (This also applies to the US.)
 
In the US, it remains likely the globalists will continue:
 
– to support life-threatening activities in many cases most harmful to our youth, including abortion and murder at birth, satanic activities (cults, pedophilia, pornography, etc.), harmful vaccinations, 5G radiation exposure, gender-fluid and sexual indoctrination, etc.. Globalist goals are to reduce world population and weaken the US physically and morally (Spiritually).
 
– to stage and or promote “false flag” attacks against some of their supporters and accuse non-globalists, or minimally leverage others attacks, in order to advance their agenda (world domination) through incitement of public disorder / chaos and or distract the public from the Trump administration’s ongoing accomplishment of campaign promises. E.g., 9/11 attack, Las Vegas attack, and many other attacks at schools, theaters, malls, news offices, nightclubs, etc. the past few years.
 
– to undermine our right to speak freely, bear arms, assemble peaceably, practice our faith unhindered, etc. by often banning/censoring, distorting, or lying regarding truthful (most often conservative) information in media (Internet: youtube, facebook, twitter, google, apple, Reddit, etc.; TV: CNN, MSNBC, PBS, CBS, NBC, ABC, to an extent Fox News, etc.; Non-conservative Radio Stations (e.g. NPR); Newspapers & Magazines: Washington Post, New York Times, many magazines, etc.; Entertainment Industry: Sports, Hollywood, etc.; Government Officials: Primarily the Democratic Party, but also part of the Republican Party; many large corporate platforms; etc.). Globalist goals are to deceive people in order to influence elections, Supreme Court appointments, Cabinet appointments, Federal Reserve appointments, US law and regulation, etc. to dominate them.
 
– to promote by paying, sponsoring, and supporting massive amounts of illegal, ill-informed immigrants to invade our country in order to cause humanitarian crises, human trafficking (sex and labor slaves), narcotics trafficking leading to the death of near 100 US citizens a day, crime, terrorism, a deceived group of people trying to illegally vote (e.g., absentee ballots) in US elections, a strain on US social benefit resources and infrastructure, a loss of jobs to citizens, etc.. Globalists’ goal is to undermine the US’ traditional values, creating chaos and violence if necessary in the US leading to dictatorial government control of its citizenry, i.e. change our form of government from a republic to possibly a popular-vote instituted communist country, etc.. Their goals directly contradict the principles of loving God first and others second at least as much as self for life and freedom described in the Bible beginning at the marriage of one man to one woman family level.
 
– to corruptly alter election results at ballot boxes at all levels of government and create public distrust by indefinitely contesting elections of more conservative officials on false bases.
 
– to slow the US economy through Federal Reserve policy (e.g., interest rates).
 
– to try and gain support for “climate change” policy in the US to weaken the power of its citizenry.
 
– to again call for the harassment, removal, or in some cases the murder of President Trump and his staff and supporters; occupation and control of government buildings and services; and lawlessness if their other political attempts to remove them fail.
 
– ,as a last resort, to incite civil war in the US.

The Lord is Merciful, but He Cannot Have Unlimited Patience for Those Who Willfully Don’t Obey / Love Him

The holiness of God is without question. He is perfectly faithful, truthful, wise, righteous, and loving. These are only some of His holy characteristics. He is God, our Creator. And He is all-powerful and sovereign over all creation. He is merciful in that He will allow us to make mistakes and give us an opportunity, or even more than one opportunity, to repent to Him with our heart (that is truly grieving that we have sinned against our holy God, and not just regretting the consequences of our sin). He will even help us to repent if we ask Him to give us that heart attitude towards Him. But, I don’t believe He will give us unlimited opportunities to repent before He either chastises us or even allows death to a believer to keep His Church pure. So, please be in a relationship with Him, as He desires to be with each of His children, to not let this happen with our loving Father. He is holy. It is best to obey Him.

I learned this by asking God’s Holy Spirit to help me understand His words He recorded in our Bible. I was reading 1 Samuel, chapters 12-15, when it became clearer to me that God told Saul, Israel’s first king, that he must obey God in order to continue to be blessed by God. Saul did obey God initially, but then faltered and disobeyed God multiple times with God warning him again to obey Him. Eventually, God in his holiness could no longer accept Saul’s disobedience and the excuses he made for it. God knew Saul’s heart and that he was not repenting for disobeying God, who created him and gave him everything he had, including his kingship over Israel. Instead, Saul was only thinking of himself, his reputation, essentially idolizing himself and not gratefully obeying God who loves him and gave him life and blessings. Eventually, Saul lost his kingship and died. Other verses addressing God’s treatment of sin include 1 John 5:16-17, Acts 5:1-11, 1 Cor 5:5 and 11:30.

Lastly, “holy” means separate, or a “cut apart.”  And to be separate or different from something else, there has to be distinction. God has to distinguish clearly for us His holiness by expecting us to obey Him in order for us to be like Him. When we obey God with the help of His Holy Spirit, which He gives us when He saves us, we then begin to understand God and develop a deeper, loving relationship with Him. God tells us to be holy, because He is holy (1 Peter 1:16). God tells us if we love Him, we will obey His commandments (John 14:15). God is love (1 John 4:8) and He sent Jesus, His Son, so that we could have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10). Therefore, He cannot allow unrepentant and willful disobedience from His children, but, as in any true relationship, only respect and sincere love. God, in His holiness, must address our sin out of His love for us and our good. God is love, and the journey with Him is beautiful!
