Mike Gendron on "Rescuing Catholics From Deception"

For sometime now, I was being challenged by my Bible teacher friend, to look deeper into Scripture.

For over two years, he would gently lead me to look into God's Word to aid me in my writing and blogging.

Of course, I continued to write in my own esoteric way, until finally one day on 6 September 2019, there was no denying the Holy Spirit any longer.

That's how God's Spirit works I suppose, knowing what had been in my heart all along for such a long time -- to know God in full.

I was also blessed to have encountered Mike Gendron online -- a minister who pointed things out gently.

Also, he had been a Catholic for 34 years as well as a former rocket scientist from Cape Kennedy, Florida.

I, too, was born Catholic but had too many questions and preferred to worship God in my own, quiet way.

But having been a journalist, my inquiring mind kept inquiring about their dogma, doctrine, ways, and methods.

I was drawn to Mike Gendron primarily because he said something which I also believed in:

"The Gospel is about Christ alone."

We erring humans get distracted by too many things of the world, buying into the greedy and deceptive world system, and forget Christ.

But no longer, my spiritual eyes have been opened after watching Dr. David R. Reagan's wake-up call from these two videos.

I think what was missing in my Catholic education is not having a real relationship with Jesus, for everything was laid out by the pope, priests, and nuns through a lot of rituals.

It's time to get un-doctrinated and start reading and loving the Bible -- God's Word -- and learning more about His Son, Jesus, as our Teacher and Savior.

My Bible teacher friend pointed out today the "diligence" of the Berean Jews:

“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”

Acts 17:11 NIV

That's how I like to study, to keep testing things and gain greater understanding, even as I allow the Holy Spirit to instruct me precisely so I can get God right in my heart.

Two "W's" of the Bible

Being a writer, researcher, and a baby Christian, I was excited to have pounced upon two simple "W" directives from the Bible, not to mean I've read the whole Bible -- far from it -- just that these two things "called" to me.


Mark 13:37 King James Version (KJV)

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

"Worship God!"

Revelation 22:9 King James Version (KJV)

Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Revelation 19:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

The Holy Spirit knows I like to learn simply so the lessons will stick.

I keep my own learning simple and yet precise.

It's always good for baby Christians to help each other and stick to the basics.

Christ as the Head of Every Power and Authority

On a previous post, "Putting on the Armor of God", we learned about spiritual warfare and how to protect ourselves.

We learned from Ephesians 6:12 NIV who our real enemies are:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

The destroyer comes in many forms and agents.

Joseph, my Bible teacher friend shares the following verse with me today as he was understandably concerned about my past research regarding new age elements:

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. 9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.”

Colossians 2:8-10 NIV

Of course, he is mighty pleased I have received Christ as a born-again Christian and I am beginning to read the Bible now, getting a better understanding of it each day.

I was probably fool-hardy in doing such deep research, with my own soul at stake.

But no, I was not into crystals and haven't really worn them unlike a lot of my friends. 

I did not have a tarot reading just for my self and even discouraged a young man from pursuing it.

I also never had my palm read for I was proud and claimed I wanted to create my own destiny (which was another foolish thing).

I would also not touch books on "spells" for I realize that a writer like myself can be vulnerable to the use of words and I only aimed to write about positive things.

Even "positive thinking" was a trap, actually, for we must only receive our guidance from the Holy Spirit.

Christ did promise the "Spirit of Truth" when he was about to leave His apostles:

16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:16-18

We humans don't really realize the only word we need is God's Word -- the Bible.

But yes, I read books on astrology, shamanism, aromatherapy, color therapy, crystals, herbs, feng shui, channeled material, psychic phenomena, taoism, buddhism, and hinduism.

I read a lot of books on esoteric subjects which I would sift from.

How little I knew that I was exposing myself unnecessarily to forces not of God.

Now, I realize the ONLY Source for All Knowledge must be Christ.

I read too many books that paled in comparison to the Bible, especially now that I'm beginning to study it.

Now, I would not touch any book but the Bible.

Of course, I immediately threw all others, making room for only God alone.

Another verse supplied by Joseph is the following:

“Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”

Leviticus 19:31 NIV

For added measure, he subtly added the one below:

“I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.”

Isaiah 42:8 NIV

To give a little credit to this researcher, I have always loved God, but like I said, I was not fully equipped to fight the forces that seek my soul's ruin. 

No amount of research is worth that, especially since I am not equipped with Scripture.

There are truly many layers to this thing called spiritual warfare, especially as the end times draw near.

Before, every time I had a heavy dream or was "psychically" attacked, I would pray, "Please help me, God!"

God would cause me to wake up, be un-paralyzed, and be saved from these entities.

Now that I have focused only on God's Word, my dreams have changed -- they're more real now.

That has gone on for the last week or so, even as I have been a Christian for only 22 days.

Of course, I am most grateful to Joseph for leading me back to Christ and only to Christ.

My soul has been saved in the nick of time.

God's Love in Seven Powerful Verses

I had no idea the Bible was so beautiful.

As a baby Christian and just beginning to read the Bible days ago, six (6) verses called to me, showing how much God loved us, making me cry, too.

One was Genesis 3:21 NIV:

"The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them."

God clothed the fallen couple who became ashamed of their nakedness.

They had disobeyed His Commands that they not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, making them lose their innocence forever.

Eve was tempted by the serpent, with Adam following suit from Eve's promptings, turning the wheel of destiny for man.

I was so touched by God's gesture, like a loving Father, making garments for His fallen children, even as He had to let them go.

I can imagine Him making that garment, even as His Heart was sad for the sinful couple.

Another verse that touched my heart so, was when Christ says in John 14:14 NIV:

"You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it."

Again, that touches my heart and causes me to tears because I can feel Christ's love, humility, and promise.

How our Savior could do all that for us, as if we sinful people are worth it, considering what God said in Genesis 8:21 about "every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood" (see previous post).

How the Father and the Son love us so!

Proof of that was in John 3:16 NIV:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

May we all be worth it.

We were even offered salvation through the verse in John 14:6 NIV:

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

We can also enter the kingdom of God by being "born again" wherein Jesus explains to Nicodemus in John 3:3 NIV:

"Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Christ says we must be "born of water and the Spirit" in John 3:5 NIV.

I also learned from 1 Peter 3:18 how Christ suffered for our sins:

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit."

These are seven (7) essential verses for any baby Christian to know and to keep in our hearts.

When you love God, you will do anything to know more about His Word, for His Words are perfect, beautiful, and full of love.

On Restoring the Lost Years

What a beautiful and well-read video on the lost years which the "locust have eaten".

This was my first encounter with Charles Spurgeon, a week ago, who I learned was largely influential with most pastors and ministers of Christ.

Being a baby Christian, the Holy Spirit led me to this particular video -- so very well-read in easy, gentle, measured tones -- unlike other Spurgeon sermons that were read by others.

So I will only feature this video for now for it also speaks of how we can all restore our strength and energy through God.

Without God, we cannot have the strength we need.

Spurgeon spoke of the "locust-eaten years of sin" and to "rend" our hearts to God.

Learning to be a Christian keeps your heart soft and humble, acknowledging our sinfulness, and opening our hearts to true learning.

I learned in Genesis 8:21, of which a portion God says:

"...every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood."

That particular phrase really struck my heart of how we are all so fallible.

Find new strength in this lovely sermon of Charles Spurgeon, which I was so happy to have been led to and re-discover the grace to go through life and whatever hardships or challenges may come our way.

Here is the Joel 2:25 verse which was the source of his sermon:

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten
    the great locust and the young locust,
    the other locusts and the locust swarm—
my great army that I sent among you.

Chuck Missler on "How to Avoid Deception"

I don't only write for readers.

I also created this "Prophecy Lessons" blog for myself, wherein it could be my online reference -- my "online notebook" -- which I could refer to again and again so I could further my Jesus and Bible studies.

It's also a way to chart my own soul's progress and understanding for these are very dangerous times.

2 Corinthians 11:13 comes to mind:

13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ.

Similarly, I found another important verse in Jeremiah 9:6:

6 You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me," declares the LORD.

Dr. Chuck Missler says you can use that waiting time at a doctor's appointment to "knock off" a chapter from the Bible.

That's surely time well-spent in Christ.

He also reveals "Attributes of the Holy Word of God" with particular emphasis on putting God's Word on a "pedestal".

You will love the video above as Dr. Missler gives us the tools necessary to identify and fight the unholy ways of the deceivers.

Christ is our Savior.

Acts 4:12 says so:

"And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."

The Awesome Bible

I've been learning to love the Bible since 6 September 2019, but today, I love it even more because I desire to know EVERYTHING about God through Jesus.

There are 66 books in the Bible and obviously I have a long way to go.

But I've studied all my life, so I have the heart, patience, and perseverance to do so. 

After so many books I've bought, studied, and sold, it's time I focused on the Bible alone.

In the video above, I found Chuck Missler's declaration particularly intriguing:

"The New Testament 
is in the Old Testament concealed;
The Old Testament
is in the New Testament revealed."

He also says the Bible is a "supernatural creation".

There's that "supernatural" word again which I've heard Dr. David R. Reagan speak of in many of his videos, as well as with other ministers you'll find on this blog.

The late pastor Missler urges us to face two challenges right now:

1. Find out what the Bible says.

2. Find out what is really going on.

We can't just live without meaning.

We must know what's really happening in us, around us, and how it all ties up with the Bible for the Word of God has all the answers.

Apart from the word "supernatural", I was also intrigued at pastor Missler's use of the word "convergence" which Dr. Reagan has also used in many of his videos.

Something is definitely going on and it's time we all read the Bible and become born again in Christ for He is our Salvation.

For my part, I remind myself of this lovely verse from Christ from John 10:30 NIV:

30 I and the Father are one.”

Things To Get Rid of In Your House Right Now

Beginners studying Bible Prophecy must know what we are fighting against.

I've always known there was "spiritual warfare" in this world so I've been doing a lot of research about these forces, even before becoming a Christian.

The primary force is the one in the "unseen" for it is always out to ambush and their ways are insidious -- you won't even know you've been ambushed or it's eating up at your soul until it's too late.

Mercifully, God gets to us in time, especially if our hearts are open to loving Him.

That's why I was thrilled to discover this 10-minute video wherein Jan Markell says in the introduction, "The paranormal is the new normal."

In another post, we also mentioned about the "Armor of God" and the entities we are really fighting which is best described in this particular verse:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

Ephesians 6:12

Having done a lot of research about how the lords of the earth have been manipulating the souls of humans, I was excited to share this video with you for now is the time to set things right in your heart with Jesus, the True Lord and Savior.

We have all been much deceived -- mightily -- but then again, it's never too late if we all act fast and throw and destroy things not of God.

The Only One who can really save us is Christ so we must catch on triple time and start reading God's Words through the Bible.

Can anything ever beat Jesus and the Word of God?

I don't think so.

I'm glad I got to know that on time.

The Psalm For One Who Loves God

Do you love God with all your heart?

Do you wish to live by Christ's Laws despite being a beginner in this Faith?

My Bible teacher shared Psalm 119 for me to study, for he said I remind him of David on this chosen path of mine to know and love God more. 

Psalm 119 is a wonderful thing to read upon waking up or before going to sleep at night for it will shape your days and nights with your intention of being faithful to God.

We beginners in Bible Prophecy could use all the help we can get so we can stay on the path, so I thank my Bible teacher for sharing it with me at the perfect moment of my perfect path.

God is always the Perfect Path and Jesus shows the Way.

Here's a sample verse that resonates well with my heart:

"The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold."

Psalm 119: 72

May you enjoy the verses as much as I have and always, thank you for being here!

Dr. Reagan on "The Wars of the End Times"

Do I believe the end times are imminent?

Yes, I do.

The world is under that which is not of God and people refuse to see it.

I was drawn by the Holy Spirit to my Bible teacher and to Dr. David R. Reagan who are both my trusted sources and teachers to learn more about Salvation in Christ through the Word of God -- the Bible.

And I feel blessed that God's Spirit got to me on time for He knew my heart.

God knew I had been searching in my soul, observing the world, and looking for many answers, all Ultimate Answers.

I had been researching and writing a lot since I was a child but there was one thing missing.

I had not really studied the Word of God and had not incorporated vital Bible passages that backed the feelings I was getting about the world and how it was going on a downward spiral.

I knew who the perpetrators were, but I was not spiritually-equipped for I didn't know God's Words by heart.

After 6 September 2019, I have been born again in Christ.

I embrace all that is of Him and only Him -- the Savior of all.

The video above is another powerful contribution by Dr. Reagan regarding the end times and how it affects Israel, a country in constant threat from many people and countries.

People blame the Jews for Christ's crucifixion, but they fail to see that God has a Greater Plan and Jesus faithfully followed this to save all of us.

What makes Dr. Reagan a credible teacher for the end times?

This link will tell you that he is spiritually, theologically, and politically astute. 

All we have to do is open our hearts, listen, pay attention, and read the Bible to gain greater understanding.

It takes a humble heart to know there is so much we don't really know.

All the knowledge, education, position, prestige, and wealth in the world will have no use when Christ comes for the Second Time.

It is good to know the end times, not so much WHEN it will occur for no one is privy to it, but occur it will.

It gives us an opportunity to pay attention to Christ's Messages, to love God, to love each other, to attend to the state of our souls, and to correct our erring ways.

Only through Christ can we be saved.

John 14:6 says it all:

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Putting on the "Armor of God"

Do you believe there's spiritual warfare going on in the world?

What do you think these are?

Also, do you know there's real Help from God? 

Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV will tell you all you need to know:

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

On "Prophecy Derangement Syndrome"

End times pastors and ministers are getting a lot of flak and are being mocked right and left by their detractors.

But I feel that the more they are being given a hard time and called deranged or delusional, the greater their inroads, even if it seems otherwise.

If there was no real battle for the souls, why would they and Jesus be attacked so?

I like the introduction to this video which says:

"The teaching of prophecy is at an all-time low which at a time most activities are happening."

It takes real courage to be a messenger but authentic pastors and ministers have the Gospel as their ONLY reference for the end times.

Pastors Jan Markell and Brandon Holthaus quote the following important verse of what's happening right now:

Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.

2 Peter 3: 3-4 NIV

I feel it's a real battle for I've had dreams of such and my coming into Bible Prophecy 11 days ago was most timely for me.

Let everyone mock but only Christ can save us now.

It's really time to make a stand for yourself.

I have.
