Does Hope Still Exist

2030 agenda

  1. Teen drug overdose rate in US rose 20% in 2015 after years of decline
  2. Smartphone separation anxiety is growing problem, says scientist

Suicides are at an all time high. This means hope is being lost. The world is spinning out of control. Nations are giving away their heritage and history to the point that some places no longer resemble their own culture.

The dictionary defines hope as: 1. Want something to be true or happen 2. To desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment

Everyone Struggles With Hope Including Christians

Hebrews 11:1 ESV Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Faith and hope go together. Our faith is the reality and guarantee of the unseen things we hope for.

Romans 8:24 ESV For in this hope we w ere saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

As Christians we are hoping for something we do not see. We hope and have faith by love.

1 Corinthians 13:7 ESV Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things…  read more

Tramp For The Lord by Corrie Ten Boom

“This remarkable woman spent the first 50 years of her life living peacefully with her father and sister above their watch shop in Haarlem, Holland.”

A Tramp For The Lord shows examples of how a Believer’s life looks like. This book has brought many wonderful things into my heart and mind. Reading this book makes me feel normal of all the struggles I (JB) endure as my relationship grows stronger in the Lord. This book is a worth read but one part touched my heart in a way that got me thinking it is on page 75 (below is wording from the book “Tramp For The Lord”):

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

11 Lights From Darkest Africa

Thomas was a tall black man who lived in a round hut together with his big family in the middle of Africa. He loved the Lord and loved people-an unbeatable combination.

Thomas’s neighbor, who lived across the dirt street, hated God -and hated men like Thomas who loved God. The hatred grew stronger and stronger until the man began sneaking over at night and setting fire to the straw roof on Thomas’s hut, endangering his small children. Three nights in a row this happened and each time Thomas was able to rush out of his hut and put out the flames before they destroyed the roof and the walls. The fact that he never said an unkind word to his neighbor, only showing him love and forgiveness, made his neighbor hate him even more. One night the neighbor sneaked across the street and set fire to Thomas’s roof. This night, however, a strong wind came up and as Thomas rushed to beat out the fire, the sparks blew across the street and set the neighbor’s house on fire. Thomas finished putting out the fire on his roof and then rushed across the street to put out the fire on his neighbor’s roof. He was able to extinguish the flames, but in the process he badly burned his hands and arms. Other neighbors told the chief of the tribe what had happened. The chief was so furious that he sent his police to arrest the neighbor and throw him into prison.

That night Thomas came to the meeting where I was speaking (as he had done each night). I noticed his badly burned hands and asked him what happened. Reluctantly he told me the story.

“It is good that this man is now in prison,” I said. “Now your children are no longer in danger and he cannot try again to put your house in flames.”
“That is true,” he said. “But I am so sorry for that man. He is an unusually gifted man and now he must live together with all those criminals in a horrible prison.” “Then let us pray for him,” I said”…. buy book to keep reading

God teaches us about forgiveness, love, kindness, joy, suffering and more and this book just put all those lessons into practice through someone else’s life. Corrie Ten Boom has been through much and each one of us has a story to tell of a life experience we have been through that can help someone else. That is one reason why we started this ministry! We wanted to share our experience through our bible studies and articles to others. We hope you like this book as much as we did.

The Blessed Hope Or The Blasted Hope

Full show here: Jan Markell talks with two pastors about how the prophetic literature in the Bible is a missing element in most churches today. Pastors Tom Hughes and Mark Henry talk with Jan about how so many church leaders don’t focus on the blessed hope of the second coming of Jesus Christ. They won’t engage in teaching on the immanency of this event.

Russia, Iran, Turkey Form $7B Oil Deal

OilTurkish energy company Unit International, Russia’s Zarubezhneft, and Iran’s non-governmental firm Ghadir Investment Company have pledged to invest a combined US$7 billion to drill at three oil fields and one natural gas field in Iran, the Turkish company said on Tuesday.

The investment commitment comes just a week after Ghadir Investment signed a deal with Zarubezhneft and Unit International to finance and develop oil and gas projects in and outside Iran.

The three companies agreed to set up joint ventures to fund oil and gas development projects, with Ghadir Exploration and Production Company leading the consortium in which each company would have equal share of the financing.

According to Unit International, as cited by Reuters, the total reserves at the three oil fields are estimated at 10 billion barrels, and the fields would be able to pump 100,000 bpd… read more

CNN Publishes Fake Hate List – Targeting Well-Known Christian Groups

Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared.

The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute.

American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.”

Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.”

“Liberty Counsel is not a hate group,” he said. “The false ‘hate’ label is very damaging to our reputation and is a safety risk to our staff. Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry, and hates no one.”… read more

Could The Coming Eclipse of 08/21 be a Warning From the Lord?

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

For the first time in exactly 100 years, a full solar eclipse will travel across the entire United States. It will start off the coast of Oregon and then exit out through South Carolina. I have posted some about this, but not much. But, because of the timing of events, I believe that this eclipse could be a direct warning from the Lord.

What has happened is that Oregon just passed a law requiring the state to pay for all abortions, including those for illegal aliens! This state now is directly involved in the abortion business, and thus it becomes the direct focus of God’s judgment. This is as serious as it can get with the Lord. He must judge this state.

What will happen just four days later is that the eclipse first will hit Oregon, which just passed this law, and it will pass directly over the state capital! To me this is astonishing, that these events are only four days apart. If this is God’s omen of judgment, he most likely will give this state a brief time to repent before the judgment falls…. read more

opinion: We were not going to post anything about the eclipse because there are to many speculations, accusations and false speaking concerning about the eclipse however the way John McTernan spoke on this is what we believe. We do not believe in the blood moons theory or any kind of theory! We believe what the bible says. Please be careful when listening to predictions!

The Coming Cashless Society by Britt Gillette

The Bible says a time will come when a global dictator will require everyone on earth to receive a mark on the right hand or the forehead (Revelation 13:16). Those without the mark won’t be able to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). For centuries, Christians have wondered how this will even be possible. But in recent years, the rise of advanced technology has given us a glimpse as to how it might occur.

New technologies have driven endless speculation about what the mark will be. Some think it will be an implantable microchip. Others think it will be a visible tattoo. Still others think it will involve bar codes or RFID chips. And on and on. The fact is, we don’t know. And it won’t be known until the mark actually appears.

However, we can know this – the technology is here to make such a mark possible. To control every buy and sell transaction in the world, the Antichrist will need to set up a system capable of tracking every transaction. And thanks to modern technology, we can easily envision such a system. Much of the foundation for one is in place. Electronic payments are already a way of life, and they foreshadow the coming of a cashless society. In fact, not only is a cashless society possible – it’s inevitable…. read more

Broken Compass by Thomas J. Miranda

The magnetic compass is believed to have been invented about 206 B.C. by the Han Dynasty and later adopted by the Song Dynasty for navigation purposes. The compass was made from lodestone (leading stone) a magnetic material. A properly working compass is a necessary guide to lead one to the correct destination. I can recall movies of sailing ships where the helmsman sat out on the open deck and his only guide was a compass to lead him across an endless ocean.

Another type of compass is our revered Constitution which has been our moral compass since 1776. This Constitution has guided America from Revolution to building the greatest nation on earth and is intended for a moral people…others need not apply.

Today we are facing many forces which are designed to destroy the Constitution and our way of life. Where did this begin?… read more
