The Eclipse

and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days
and for years.  Genesis 1:14

Everyone is talking about the eclipse on August 21st,
wondering if it means anything. Because God set the
sun, moon and stars in the heavens 'as signs,' my take
on it is that this Eclipse is very important and we
should seek God, not man, for understanding.
Eclipse-Literally a defect or failure; an interception or
obscuration of the light of the sun caused by the inter-
vention of the moon which hides the suns disk.
Websters Dictionary 1825.

Hmm, 'defect or failure.'

We in little Weiser, ID are right in the center of the event.
The town is about to fill up to overflowing, but no one
knows exactly what that is going to look like. There is a
carnival atmosphere. Yet the back roads leading to the
farm lands are afraid of fire as people drive off the roads
to view the Eclipse. It is very dry here.

I believe that the Eclipse is just one of the signs that God
is orchestrating so we would know just how late is the
hour. We are living at the end of the 6,000 years. Remem-
ber that God rested on the seventh day. Many Jewish
scholars believe that God is only giving this earth 7,000
years. The 1,000 years mentioned in Revelation 20 cor-
respond to the day God rested, the seventh day. Before
the 1,000 years, or Millennium, there comes seven years
of Tribulation. Former blogs go into detail as to how
everything is ready for a one world government and the

This view is not taught by many theologians and some
of you have grown up believing the earth is very old, that
there is no rapture, no tribulation and no 1,000 years. If
that is the case then you are not looking for Him and you
don't have a clue as to how late it really is. Jesus said that
his coming would be like the time of Noah and Lot when
everyone thought life was wonderful and would continue
on. They were buying and selling, planting and harvesting--
living it up-- until God intervened by flood and fire.

Reader, I encourage you to read Matt 24, 1st & 2nd Thes-
salonians, 1 Corinthians 15--throw in Daniel and
Wow, that is a lot, but these books outline what is to come.
Every prophecy regarding the first coming was fulfilled
exactly. It will be the same thing for all the prophecies that
have not yet been fulfilled.

been happening in the heavens over the past two years,

Shallow and Profound

Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do 
all to the glory of God.   I Cor 10:31.

Even the shallow things of life, such as eating and 
drinking, walking and talking, are ordained by God. 
We are safeguarded by the shallow things of life. 
We have to live the surface, commonsense life in a 
commonsense way. We are so nauseatingly serious, 
so desperately interested in our own character and 
reputation, we refuse to behave like Christians in 
the shallow concerns of life. OC

Reader, life is made up of the commonplace. With
all of our technical toys it is harder to come down
to cleaning the toilet!  Our Lord was interested in
the commonplace. He used the simple things of
life, the basic things to bring home truth.

My Cup Overflows

My cup overflows
Only goodness and steadfast love 
shall follow me all the days of 
my life...   Psalm 23:5,6

There is always something 'over,'
   When we trust our gracious Lord;
Every cup is overflowing,
   His great rivers all are broad.
Nothing narrow, nothing sparing,
   Ever springing from His store;
To His own He gives full measure,
   Overflowing, evermore.

There is always something 'over,'
   When we, from the Father's hand,
Take our portion with thanksgiving,
   Praising for the path He planned.
Satisfaction, full and deepening,
   Fills the soul, and lights the eye,
When the heart has trusted Jesus
   All its needs to satisfy.

There is always something 'over,'
   When we tell of all His love;
Unreached depths still lie beneath us,
   Unscaled heights rise far above:
Human lips can never utter
   All His wondrous tenderness,
We can only praise and wonder,
   And His name forever bless.
Margaret E Barber

He who did not spare his own Son, 
but gave him up for us all--
how will he not also, 
along with him, 
graciously give us all things? 
Romans 8:32

Reader, look at the verse at the top,
Surely, only does God shower us
with goodness and steadfast love. 
Then the verse at the bottom:
He who did not spare his own Son, 
will graciously give us all things.

We don't have to wait until we die and
go to heaven, we can receive from Him
in the moment so that, Our cup overflows...

Bring them here to me.   
Matthew 14:18

Do you find yourself at this very moment surrounded
with needs and nearly overwhelmed with difficulties,
trials, and emergencies? Each of us is God's way of
providing vessels for the Holy Spirit to fill. If you cor-
erectly understand their meaning, you will see them as
opportunities for receiving new blessings and deliver-
ance you can see not other way.

The Lord is saying to you, "Bring them here to Me." 
Firmly hold the vessels before Him, in faith and prayer.

Remain still before Him, 
Stop your own restless working until He begins to work. 
Do nothing that He Himself has not commanded you to do. 
Allow God time to work and He surely will.

Then the very trials that threatened to overcome you with 
discouragement and disaster will become God's 
opportunity to reveal His grace and glory in your life, in 
ways you have never known.

"Bring (your needs) here to me."  (AB Simpson)

Reader, I am a little overwhelmed by the coming week
end when Weiser becomes the center of the eclipse and
will bring thousands to our city. We will have a full house
here and it won't be easy to 'run to the store.' This scripture
and the commentary truly sets out a plan for peace--inner
peace. AB Simpson has blessed me in what he has penned.
He was still traveling and teaching even into old age.  He
founded the Christian Missionary Alliance denomination.
His bio is quite interesting.

His Sweet Aroma

Thanks be to God who always 
leads us in triumph in Christ...
2 Corinthians 2:14

The proper perspective to maintain is that we are 
here for only on purpose--to be captives marching 
in the procession of Christ's triumphs. We are 
encompassed with the sweet aroma of Jesus, and
wherever we go we are a wonderful refreshment
to God. Oswald Chambers

Reader, is it not astounding that we can bring
refreshment to our God? But that is because
we are surrounded by the sweet aroma of Jesus.
We are to live and move and have our being
immersed in the triumph of Christ.

A Strange Well

Spring up, O Well! Sing About it. 
Numbers 21:17

This was a strange song and a strange well. The Children 
of Israel had been traveling over the desert's barren sands;
and they were desperate for water, but there was none in
sight. Then God spoke to Moses and said, 'Gather the
people together and I will give them water.' (v 16)

Then the people gathered around with their rods. As they 
began to dig deeply into the burning sand they sang,
'Spring up O well! Sing about it.' Soon a gurgling sound
was heard, and suddenly a rush of water appeared, filling
the well and running along the ground. As they dug the
well in the desert, they had tapped into the stream that ran 
below and that had been unseen for very long.

How did the children of Israel reach the water of this well? 
It was through praise. As they stood on the burning sand, 
digging, they sang a praise song of faith.

Nothing pleases the Lord as much as praise. There is no
greater evidence of faith than the virtue of genuine 

Reader, are you praising God enough? Are you thanking 
Him for the countless blessings you enjoy? Are you boldly 
praising Him even for the trials, which are actually bles-
sings in disguise? And have you learned to praise Him in 
advance for the answers yet to come?
(Selected from Streams in the Desert)

Nothing of the Old Life

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old
things have passed away; behold, all things 
have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

God pays no respect to anything we bring to Him. 
There is only one thing God wants of us, and that 
is our unconditional surrender. Oswald Chambers

Reader, I forget just how thorough our salvation is.
We think and act on what we believe about our-
selves. If I know that I have been born again from
above, I am far more inclined to bring to God
unconditional surrender. Think about that!

The Brook Dried Up...

Some time later the brook dried up because there had
been no rain in the land. (I Kings 17:7)

Week after week, with an unwavering and steadfast spirit,
Elijah watched the brook dwindle and finally dry up.
Often tempted to stumble into unbelief, he nevertheless
refused to allow his circumstances to come between
himself and his God. Unbelief looks at God through the
circumstances, just as we often see the sun dimmed by
clouds or smoke. But faith puts God between itself and
its circumstances, and looks at them through Him.

Elijah's brook dwindled to only a silver thread, which
formed pools at the base of the largest rocks. Then the
pool evaporated, the birds flew away, and the wild
animals of the field and forests no longer came to drink,
for the brook became completely dry. And, only then,
to Elijah's patient and faithful spirit, did the word of the
Lord come and say, 'Go at once to Zarephath.' verse 9

Most of us would have become anxious and tired, and
would have made other plans long before God spoke.
Our singing would have stopped as soon as the stream
flowed less musically over its rocky bed. We would have
hung our harps on the willows nearby and begun pacing
back and forth on the withering grass. And probably,
long before the brook actually dried up, we would have
devised a plan, asked God to bless it, and headed

God will often extricate us from the mess we have made,
because 'his love endures forever.'Yet if we had only
been patient and waited to see the unfolding of His plan,
we would never have found ourselves in such an impos-
sible maze, seeing no way out. We would also never have
had to turn back and retrace our way, with wasted step
and so many tears of shame.

Wait for the Lord (Ps 27:4)
Patiently wait!

Reader, I hate to say it but I like to make plans when
things are falling apart. I know that God is sovereign,
but somehow I forget His involvement in my life
when things go south. AND, I forget to seek Him as
to what He wants me to do!

More Info on UFO's

The subject of the last blog, UFO's and Aliens, has so
much more to it than I was able to get into a post. UFO
means 'Unidentified Object' and became a byword after
WWII. My dad who was a pilot for TWA reported seeing
a disc-like object that flew next to them which suddenly
disappeared. There was also the Roswell Affair in 1947
where something crashed in Roswell, Georgia and was
hushed up leading to speculation that it was a flying
saucer flown by Aliens. The jury is still out on this! We
have no idea what the military has developed over the
years. However, I want to go into the spiritual dimen-
sion of this subject and see what the church and others
are saying about UFO's and Aliens.

The Catholic Church has an observatory on top of
Mount Graham in Arizona which has dedicated at least
one telescope to finding and tracking UFO's. There is a
wonderful book written by Chris Putnam and Thomas
Exo-Vaticana--Project L.U.C.I.F.E.R and the Vatican's 
Plan for the Arrival of an Alien Savior.
This well documented book is 550 pages in length.
Chuck Missler says this in the introduction:
Warning: this book may shatter the comfort of closely
held pre-suppositions and may result in the wholesale
alterations of crucial priorities. 
And a quote from the cover:
'Contemporary societies will look to Alien's to be
the Saviors of Mankind.' Vatican Astronomer and
Planetary Scientist of the Vatican Observatory. 

This is what the unbelievers say about a coming

Barbara Marciniak is a very famous New Age author
and channeler. In her book Bridges of the Dawn she
documents what she claims extra-terrestrials from the
star system of the Pleiades have told her: "There will
be great shiftings within humanity on this planet. It
will seem that great chaos and turmoil are forming,
that nations are rising against each other in war, and
that earthquakes are happening more frequently. Earth
is shaking itself free, and a certain realignment or
adjustment period is to be expected. The people who
leave the planet during the time of earth changes do
not fit here any longer, and they are stopping the
harmony of earth. When the time comes that perhaps
twenty million people leave the planet at one time,
there will be a tremendous shift in consciousness for
those who are remaining."

Channeler Thelma Terrell, who goes by her spiritual
name, 'Tuella,' wrote a book called Project World
Evacuation: "Our rescue ships will be able to come in
close enough in the twinkling of an eye to set the
lifting beams in operation in a moment, and all over
the globe where events warrant it, this will be the
method of evacuation. Mankind will be lifted,
levitated shall we say, by the beams from our smaller
ships. These smaller craft will in turn taxi the persons
to the larger ships overhead, higher in the atmosphere,
where there is ample space and quarters and supplies
for millions of people. The Great Evacuation will
come upon the world very suddenly. The flash of
emergency events will be as a lightning that flashes
in the sky."

Various UFO Channelers: "The cataclysms are all part
of purifying this Earth back to a millennium. What is
going to happen when you reach a certain point is that
you will have the first wave of ascension. Those whose
bodies cannot take this change will go in the first wave
of ascension. They will be taken up and their bodies 
will be changed in the twinkling of an eye. In the 
twinkling of an eye they will be removed from the
physical completely in the new spiritual body. There
will be many visits from the galaxies by inter-
dimensional beings, as from the Pleiades, to assist
and in some cases to rescue people and take them into
higher places. Those are the flying machines that you
are seeing coming into your galaxies that have been
preparing themselves for up to the last forty years.
Some never die on this earth, these missing persons
have already been taken, as their time was not up and
they were not meant to go through a demise. They
went through a lift-off in UFO's.

Reader, I find it interesting that there are books written
by those who are not Biblically taught, which speak
plainly of a sudden departure from earth of a certain
group of people. They know that something is coming
even to the point of developing a story to be told when
the church leaves. They are ready. Are you? Time is
short and we do not know how much longer we have
on earth before the Rapture and then the seven year
tribulation. Please do not wait to ask Jesus to come
into your heart and cleanse you from all sin.

"But when these things begin to take place, straighten
up and lift your heads, because your redemption is
drawing nigh.  Luke 21:28

UFO's and Aliens

What are UFO's?
Who are the Aliens?

Billy Crone says, "We know UFO's are demonic in
nature--they teach like demons. Demons not only lie
but they propagate lies with teachings, i.e. false teach-
ings! How little people know that the teachings that
are supposedly coming from these Aliens and UFOs
have their roots in the occult beliefs of the New Age
Movement.  (I covered this in detail in my last blog)
The average person today thinks that they are making
contact and receiving new teachings from these
heavenly hosts orbiting the planet when in reality they
are helping to spread the beliefs of the New Age
Movement. They are one and the same."
( I posted Crone's testimony in the last blog. He was
deep into the New Age before Christ rescued him.
He is a pastor in Las Vegas.)

  • All of us are little gods
  • The earth is a living entity, that needs worship
  • Jesus and religious sects came from the ET's
  • There is no such thing as sin. We do not need saving
  • Jesus' real message was to teach us we are little Christ's
  • To contact ET's one should refrain from certain foods
  • One needs to practice meditation
  • Mankind needs to unite into a one world government
  • Man needs to unite in one religion, or be destroyed
  • The devil or Lucifer is a good guy who will set us free
John Ankerburg: "In light of the messages given by UFO
entities, how credible is it to think that literally thousands
of genuine extra-terrestrials would fly millions or billions
of light years simply to teach New Age Philosophy, deny
Christianity, and support the occult? Why would these 
entities actually possess and inhabit people like the 
demons do if they were really advanced extra-terrestrials? 
Why would they consistently lie about things which we know 
are true, why would they purposely deceive their contacts.:"

Also why are people able to get free of them by using the 
Name of Jesus? (Because they are demons!)

Billy Crone: "Little do people know that UFO's and aliens 
are also being used to explain away the Rapture of the 

The Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a 
loud command, with the voice of an archangel and with 
the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be 
caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the 
Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." 
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17.

"This is just one passage concerning the evacuation of the 
Christians, i.e. Rapture of the Church, just prior to God's 
wrath being poured out upon the planet in the 7-year 
tribulation. However, little do people realize that UFO's 
and aliens are actually being used right now to explain 
away this amazing prophetic event. These demonic entities 
are actually preparing the planet to think that this mass 
disappearance of people from the earth in a mere flash, is 
not an event from God coming to get His Church. Rather, 
it's the UFO's who have come to beam these people up into 
their spaceships for various reasons. When the population 
witness people disappear all across the planet, they may 
very well not connect it with God or the Rapture or even 
Christianity. Rather, they have been conditioned by 
Hollywood, the New Age, and the lie of evolution to think 
it was the UFO's and aliens that came and got them. There-
fore, those that remain will be just fine. They don't need to 
repent. (Crone)
(In fact they better fall in line with the message of the world 
so it won't happen to them!)

Reader, my heart is bowed down, not by the things that are
coming but how it will affect the church. Only 30% of 
Christians have a Biblical World View--I pulled that stat
from Drudge today. How many of that 30% believe in the
Rapture and are watching eagerly for His return? Most
Christians I know are not watching or even interested in 
end time prophecy, even though we are living in it!


Jesus said: "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that 
ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things
that shall come to pass, and to stand before the 
Son of Man. Luke 21:36

The New Age Movement

We are still considering those things that Jesus said will
point to the last seven years. It seemed important to Him
that we be aware of the time. He gave many sermons in
this regard and scripture is full of prophecy that has not
yet been fulfilled. We are 'to watch,' 'to be alert,' 'to be
sober,' 'and to wait with expectancy.'

The New Age Movement began about 1875 with the
false teachings of Helen Blavatsky who was part of an
occult group called the Theosophical Society. They
espoused the abolishment of Christianity, Judaism, and
Islam with all other religions becoming one.

In the 1920's these teachings were picked up and expan-
ded by Alice Bailey who formed the 'Lucifer Publishing
Company' to help print and promote these ideas. It was
Bailey who established the symbol of the rainbow as
their identification sign and discussed topics like: a reli-
gious war, forced distribution  of the world's resources,
mass planetary initiations and theology for a new world
order, world-wide disarmament, and elimination of
obstinate religions. She even discussed the sacredness
of the number, 666. (Bet you thought these ideas were
brand new....)

Here is a short list of their core beliefs

All is god: the earth, man, animals, and plants

Each one of us has the ability to become 'the Christ' or
'the Christ-consciousness.

Man is destroying the earth along with the animals and
plants. Unless he changes his ways, 'Mother Earth' will
be forced to destroy humanity. Christianity is the biggest
culprit destroying the earth by teaching that man had
dominion over the earth when the earth is a living being.

There is no such thing as sin and no need to repent.

Jesus is but one of many great teachers such as Buddha,
Muhammad or Confucius.

Mankind should seek direction directly through 'the spirit
world' via a psychic, channeler, palm reader, astrology,
angels, space aliens, dead relatives, meditation, etc.

All religions (except orthodox Christianity) are equal in

In order for the world to be at peace and harmony there
must be a New World Order, universal monetary system,
world authority o food, health, water, a universal tax,
military draft, one world leader, and the abolishment of

Why keep picking on Christianity? Well, beside the fact
that it is truth, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and 
the life, no one comes to the Father except by me.
John 14:6.

The source of my research is The Final Countdown, by
Billy Crone. I am just skimming the top of all his
carefully researched material. Yesterday I came across
his testimony. He was deep into the occult, then deep
into humanism, then deep in the New Age--when Jesus
set him free. I have included his story below:

Paul Harvey on Humanism

Humanism teaches that man is the center of all things,
determining, his own destiny, being his own god. It
began with Satan in the garden:

"You will not surely die," the Serpent said to the
woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it
your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,
knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:4,5

It was fifty years ago that Paul Harvey warned about
this subversion now growing in America:


"If I were the devil...if I were the Prince of Darkness,
I'd want to engulf the whole world in darkness and
I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths
of its population, but I wouldn't be happy until I had
seized the ripest apple on the tree, thee.

So I'd set about however necessary to take over the
United States. I'd subvert the Churches first. I'd begin
with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of the
serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve:
"Do as you please."

To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth.
I would convince them that man created god instead of
the other way around. I would confide that what is bad
is good, and what is good is 'square.'

And the old I would teach them to pray after me: 'Our
Father, which art in Washington.'

And then I'd get organized. I'd educate authors in how to
make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would
appear dull and uninteresting. I'd threaten TV with dirtier
movies and visa versa.

I'd peddle narcotics to whom I could. I'd sell alcohol to
ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I'd tranquilize the rest
with pills.

If I were the devil, I'd soon have families at war with them-
selves, and nations at war with themselves until each in its
turn was consumed.

And with promises of higher ratings, I'd have mesmer-
izing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil, I would
encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to
discipline emotions--just let those run wild until before you
knew it, you'd have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal
detectors at every schoolhouse.

Within a decade, I'd have prisons overflowing. I'd have
judges promoting pornography. Soon I could evict God
from the courthouse, and then from the schoolhouse, and
then from the houses of Congress.

And in His own churches, I would substitute psychology
for religion and deify science. I would have priests and
pastors into missing boys and girls and church money.
If I were the devil, I'd make the symbol of Easter an egg
and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and
I would give to those who wanted, until I killed the incen-
tive of the ambitious. And what will you bet I couldn't
get whole states to promote gambling as a way to get rich.

I would caution against extremism in hard work, in patrio-
tism, in moral conduct. I would convince the young that
marriage is old fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that
what you see on TV is the way to be and thus I could un-
dress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with
diseases for which there is no cure.

In other words, If I were the devil, I'd just keep on doing 
what he is doing."

Reader, can you deny that it has continued to slide down-
hill, that it is more than just beginning? What are we head-
ing towards?

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up 
and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing
near. Luke 21:28

Come, Lord Jesus!
