Like a Gun Without Bullets

Fear is a spirit...all fear...fear replaces faith. Fear is the biggest obstacle to having faith. You can have pure water (faith), add in one drop of soap (fear) and you no longer have something that will sustain you, but is only good for tossing out.

Remember Job said: "what I feared has come upon me"

Speak to the fear using scripture. Everytime fear tries filling your head with what if's, speak the Word right back at it. Resist it. Fear is crippling in that it prevents the mind from thinking (just the opposite of the "sound mind" that we've been given).

I say this to everyone, get rid of the fear! As we head into the Tribulation period, we are going to see and hear things that would normally so paralyze a person with fear that if we let it, we will be unable to go on. If anyone thinks that what's coming is going to be just a physical battle to survive, you'd better rethink. All the gates of hell are going to be opened, as satan uses every weapon in his arsenal to rob, kill and destory every soul he can.

More important than having a rifle or gun will be having the Sword of the Word ready to use. Learn to speak out the Word against every problem and every enemy. Learn to take authority by the name of Jesus over every problem the devil and his minions throw at you. If you don't know the Word and how to use it, it'll be like having a gun and no bullets, totally useless.

Strap on your armour folks we're heading to the front lines and, if it hasn't already in your life... the battle is about to engage!

Day of the Lord e-study

If you've ever been confused by all of the different theories that you've heard concerning the end-times as described in the Bible, then you need to get my new e-study "Day of the Lord". This is a word study that pulls together all of the different variations of the term in the Word of God. Suddenly you will actually see how both old and new testament prophecies say exactly the same thing.

In some instances I have commented on what I understand, but always you are encouraged to study for yourself. However with this e-study guide the time you would have to spend has been virtually eliminated because all of the verses are there arranged by category.

If you have wondered about the timing of endtime events then you definitely want to have this! New information has come to light about the solar system that points to the fact that the year of 2008 could be extremely significant in prophetic events. There is no longer time to waste on getting ahead, pursuing a financial we are on the edge of eternity and you need to prepare mentally and spiritually so that you can be counted an Overcomer.

Wisdom of Word or World

Too often Christians accept the wisdom of the world instead of really looking at what the Word of God says. This is especially true when it comes to survival preparedness. The wisdom of the world says you had better have a way to defend yourself against the mindless hoards of killers, rapists and thieves.

One of the most commonly recommended methods of defense is a firearm. Which is why almost every person who is preparing is also accumulating at least one or more firearms along with a good supply of ammunition. Even a brief visit to any online survival group and a look through their archives will reveal a number of conversations about the wisdom of having a gun, rifle or shotgun.

However, what's the wisdom of the Word say? First of all, before I get to much further into this, let me point out that I believe in the right to keep and bear arms, and I would not hesitate to use a gun to defend a loved one.

Having said that I am beginning to wonder if that's just worldly wisdom seeping into my mind. What does the Word say about defending oneself?

Since we are talking about the end times, look at this:

Psalms 20:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

Here is says that in the "day of trouble"...which is a term associate with end times (day of wrath, day of the Lord, day of darkness, etc.) Here it says that God Himself will defend. That's one...are there others?

Psa 7:10 My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

Psa 31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for a house of defense to save me.

Psa 59:9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defense.

Psa 59:16-17 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble. 17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.

Psa 62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.

Psa 62:6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.

Psa 94:22 But the LORD is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

Does the Word say that God is our protection and refuge?

Psa 46:1 To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Deu 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Psa 145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

Pro 3:26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. What takes a foot but a trap. Here is a promise that God will protect from "running" into traps.

Psa 37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. It's interesting that here the Word says that the "arms of the wicked that be broken" when today we use the word "arms" to describe weapons.

Does that mean we should not have firearms? That's something you have to decide for yourself; it's between you and your God. However, here's something to think about:

Rev 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Here is clearly says that if a sword (major weapon of the day) is used to kill then whoever uses the sword will be killed. Since the gun is the major weapon of today this could mean that if the saints rely on a physical weapon to protect and defend them that they can expect to be killed that way.

Since the weapon spoken of figuratively in the New Testament is the Sword of the Word, is it possible that we are to use the Word of God as protection? That idea would seem to be confirmed by:

Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Here it says that it is the "word" of the saints' testimony that allows them to overcome "him" being the Antichrist. Since it's Satan who controls the Antichrist and those other enemies that would attempt to attack or destroy us then it's the Sword or the Word of God that we are to use.

Will I have a gun? Yes, at least for hunting. Will I use it to defend myself or loved ones?....that is a question that can only be answered at that time. It's a question I will have to answer for myself, as you will have to decide for yourself where you stand.

Food Shortages Around Corner

If you haven't begun storing food against future famine, then you may almost be out of time. According to Jon Markman of MSN Money rising prices and weather-induce production shortages are combining to result in a world-wide famine.

This food shortage would not just be in some third world countries, it would be in downtown Dallas, New York and Los Angeles. We "rich" Americans have just been coasting along focusing on "getting ahead", "being the Joneses", taking those luxury vacations, spending $500 for a pair of sneakers, $1500 for a purse and $5000 for a pair of shoes!

Do we really think that the rest of the world is going to do anything but smirk at us when we complain about the high prices of fuel? When we have to give up our iPods, Blackberries and other money-consuming gadgets, do you think the rest of the world is going to care?

Instead of buying those overpriced items that you don't really need, you might want to think about buying a case of long-term storage foods. Believe me, when the famine comes stalking down your street, you won't be munching on those Jimmy Choos!
