The Christmas Star
When we find that we have no time to wish someone "Merry Christmas", then we are too busy. This is where I have found myself this Christmas. Oh, if someone was standing in front of me, it was easy. "Merry Christmas to you and your family," I would say. Christmas cards I started early, but they went on and on. Here it is the 30th of December and I have one left to do.
And yes, I do want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. After all, Christmas is the reason I am here. I love Christmas. I love all things Christmas. I love the Christ of Christmas!
So here I am thinking about those of you who come to this site and wonder where I am at Christmas, of all things! All I can say is that the multi-job and busy bug has bitten me.
Of course the Star of Christmas is Christ, our Saviour, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God, Emmanuel - God With Us! Nothing else matters but Him and all that He has done for us and why He came.
I hope you have had peace, love, thankfulness and wonder this Christmas. And may you and yours have a blessed New Year! - Patty 12/30/17
More Microchip Information - Now in Sports
The possibility of forced microchipping of Olympians is discussed here http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/track-this-olympians-now-face-implanted-chips/.
More disturbing possibilities of forced microchipping, along with states that have banned involuntary microchipping, is revealed in this article.
"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name." - Revelation 13:16-17(NIV)

What is Antifa?
Specifically, those who intend to overthrow the government of the United States by revolution towards a new world through Communism. This is Antifa. Communism - that form of dictatorship used primarily in the 20th century to topple governments, enslave societies and cause wars - was itself overthrown many times to breathe new life into hurting people worldwide. My question is: how young are those who make up Antifa? I ask because millions my age and younger have seen the devastation Communism has brought upon the world. Why would any group long to make it happen again?
Here is a good article detailing the move towards a Nov. 4th uprising by Antifa: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1662.

Many people are aware that the Mark of the Beast in the book of Revelation most likely refers to microchipping.
Revelation 14:9-11King James Version (KJV)
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
New evidence comes to light regularly about the use of microchipping in humans. See this article from Now The End Begins: http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/swedish-commuters-freak-people-out-by-using-microchip-implants-purchase-train-tickets/
If you are unaware of this apparent fulfillment of Bible prophecy, or you know of someone who wants to be implanted, please share. You may help save someone's eternal life.

I just learned that the way microchipping will become palatable to us is under the guise of health care. Our health records will be uploaded and any care we need will be given thru the chips information. BE AWARE - BE WARNED! - Patty 6-16-17
No One Knows the Day or Hour!
"No One Knows the Day or Hour" from Matthew 24:36 may mean something far different than we have always thought. Since these words were spoken by Jesus Christ, most people have assumed they meant that no one can ever know when Jesus is returning. Now new evidence has come to light through "The Coming Convergence" by Ingenuity Films.
There are 7 Feasts of the Lord. The first four - Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits & Pentecost - were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in His 1st coming. The last three - Trumpets, Atonement & Tabernacles - will be fulfilled in His 2nd coming.
The Feast of Trumpets is known by the Jewish people as "No One Knows the Day or Hour". The Feast of Trumpets follows a new moon. The new moon was a sliver of moon and might be missed due to brevity or cloud cover. However, if two witnesses saw the new moon and declared it, then The Feast of Trumpets began. Thus the meaning of the term for the Feast of Trumpets.
It is now revealed that this is what Jesus meant in Matthew 24:36. Jesus speaks in terms that we can understand and He was speaking to the Jewish people and their understanding of the Feasts. The day and hour are still not declared, but the Feast of Trumpets just may well be the season.

Is the Tribulation About Here?
Prophecy News Watch recommends "The Coming Convergence" which reveals the possibility that the Tribulation could be upon us. They have analyzed data from the USGS regarding earthquakes that has not previously been shared with us. Please see two video previews here http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/product.cfm?product_id=40 and see for yourself.
Come soon Lord Jesus! Are you ready for Him?

"The Coming Convergence" is about much more than earthquakes & the tribulation. Check out the trailers and see for yourself. - Patty, 4/27/17
Reflection on Jesus
I grew up in a predominantly conservative Christian home. I say predominant because while Christian beliefs were conservative, politics were a little more liberal. At any rate, I was raised in an evangelical church and didn't have any exposure to the Lenten season. I knew nothing of Good Friday, Maundy Thursday and the disciplines of this season. We focused on Christmas and Easter; not a bad upbringing but not complete.
Fast forward 30 or 40 years and I starting attending another type of conservative church; not the denomination I had been in, but also not one whose norm was to study or participate in the Lenten season. However, this church had seen the light and added this season, as well as the season of Epiphany, the season of Normal time and others to their agenda. This was to my great benefit.
As I learned more of the suffering of our Saviour Jesus Christ, I became more aware of my inadequacies in comparison. I learned that not only was Jesus born, that He died and that He rose again - amazing events for all of our lives, but that He suffered. And it was a great deal in His suffering that we can learn so much from Him. Because God the Father loved us so much He gave His only Son, Jesus, to die in exchange for all of us who deserved it. In spite of the fact that Jesus did not deserve to die for anyone, He died for us voluntarily, so that we could come to Him. That is GREAT LOVE! Love so amazing that even if one of us died for someone we loved, it is still no comparison because Jesus died for all of us who are neither loveable nor loving.
This Lenten season I am learning anew what it means to be neither loveable nor loving but being loved by Him who is LOVE - the Lamb of God and the King of the world!
Don't forget to read the Bible. In it we learn who Jesus is and who we are. Start in John and continue through the New Testament until you get a really good picture of just who Jesus is.

Yes, I Believe in Pre-Tribulation Rapture
As I was listening to The Bible on disc, I Thessalonians 5:9 jumped out at me, "For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ." To me this is clear affirmation that the Rapture will happen before the tribulation. We are not to experience the Wrath of God, if we have salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
This has become clearer to me over many years of study and research of the end times, but no more than now, as I believe God wants His children to KNOW the truth, knowing that the truth will set us free.
I have heard many people say, "The word "rapture" is not in the Bible". Correct, I don't see it either - not in the English language. However, it is derived from the Greek.
Where "Rapture" comes from: I Thessalonians 4:16-18 from "caught up" in vs. 17 = "harpazo" in Greek, which is "to carry off", "snatch up", "grasp hastily". Harpazo in the Greek translates to "raptus" in Latin; "raptus" translates to "rapture" in English.
So, don't take my word for it; I didn't take anyone's word. I studied and researched myself, so I would know. I suggest you do the same. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you, then delve in. God only wants us to know the truth. Find it for yourself.

The Difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus
Now the End Begins website has a very good article regarding the difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. It is at http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/absolute-100-certainty-pretribulation-rapture-church-jesus-christ/.
In the body of the text is a link to a Bible study that starts at 9:00pm ET tonight (Sunday, 9/4) regarding this topic. There is also a study guide link right above the link to listen.
I've been following this writer for several years and find his views to be biblical.

End Times Best Explained!
There are many good books, articles and websites out there to tell us how prophecy stacks up with current events regarding the end times. I very recently had a question that I had not been able to answer regarding end times prophecy, "Who is Mystery Babylon"? I have read many books, articles, websites, The Bible and had my opinion, but was unable to come to the truth. I have learned that when it comes to prophecy we sometimes need help to interpret the Bible passages.
Along this line I remembered a book I purchased many years ago, "Things to Come" by J. Dwight Pentecost. This book was first his doctoral dissertation in seminary, and afterwards became this book on eschatology. I studied it all those years ago, but just remembered it might help answer my question. I am excited to say that it did. I highly recommend this readable reference book. It may have views you don't share, but it will make you hungry to study and learn the truth.

Salvation for the Jews - NOT Replacement Theology!
All my life I have been taught the Word of God and studied on my own. I learned of the Patriarchs, the Twelve Tribes of Israel, Abraham, Isaac & Jacob, and God's plan to bring the Jews and Gentiles to Himself through Jesus Christ. When I heard that a number of Christians had adhered to a belief that Gentile Christians replaced the promise of God to the Jews with His promise to the Gentiles, I was astounded. I always believed that Gentiles were grafted in to the Tree of Life with the Jews for salvation. Gentiles don't replace the Jews and God's promise to them. However, I wasn't sure where to begin to bring light to those who believe this odd theology.
Today, as I listened to Romans, a light came on when Romans 11:25-27 was read.
"I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited. Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." (NIV)
When the Gentiles that are going to believe are finished, Israel will be saved. That, to me, is very clear. I hope that the Gentiles who believe this wrong theology will see what the Father intended all along.

Unique & Loved
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” – Psalm 139:13-17, NIV
I was reading a Lent devotional written by someone who had a totally different slant on the subject we were studying. I was appalled, I didn’t want to listen; I wondered why the writer was using this odd illustration, when it occurred to me the two of us are unique, different, loved by God. The writer had every right to discuss the topic as she saw fit, just as I have every right to look at it as I do. God created every person that has ever lived, or will ever live, as a unique creation. No two people are alike.
I remember when I heard that, as a child, I was awed! How could I be different than anyone else? Weren’t there at least two people alike in the whole universe? According to David, writer of this Psalm, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. When I think about someone having the exact same parents, lineage, experiences, name and more, I know we are each unique. Not even twins have everything the same.
What does this have to do with the end times? Everything! It is because God loves each of us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die that we may live. It is because Jesus died and resurrected to live again that we may have life. It is because He has life that He is soon returning for His own – those who know Him – to live with Him forever. The purpose of our being aware of the end times is so that we may prepare, that we may know Him and that we may go with Him. I am ready! Are you?
