Time of the Rapture.

Tom's Journal.

I thought this, "Timing of the Rapture" short article, lent some good insight and definition to the content of my recent Blog posts -- and I think we ought to be prepared to quench the fiery missiles of erring 'Christian' wanna- bees who attack the biblical truisms of ours. Truth be told, I would follow the commands of the Bible even if God WILLED that we had to endure the Great Tribulation! In fact that was what I USED TO BELIEVE when trapped in the JW-Cult-- 'church of the poisoned mind!' And to think that they teach that "hell" is a state of unconscious 'nothing-ness' --of 'non-existence.' On the other hand, IF they were [are] wrong about hell-- and the biblical HELL was indeed a terrible place of everlasting torment and deprivation-- just think of all the poor, messed up, uninformed people/ followers who would be trapped in HELL forever because the JW-cult steered them wrong and lied to them!! What a terrible price to pay for getting involved in that Cult! That's closely akin to the Catholic church telling their people that eating meat on Friday would send THEM to hell! And also-- what about their law that priests have to remain celibate [never to marry a lady] -- that is also UN--scriptural?

Purgatory: Purifying Fire or Fatal Fable

By Mike GendronProclaiming the Gospel MinistriesCatholics who believe a purifying fire will purge away their sins are deluded victims of a fatal fabrication. The invention of a place for purification of sins called Purgatory is one of the most seductive attractions of the Roman Catholic religion. Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church described this deceptive hoax brilliantly. He said: "

JUST read 1st Timothy, 4th chapter, verses 1 thru 6.... for proof that their laws are SCRIPTURAL! Don't you figure that IF the priest had their own wives they would be less likely to abuse young boys?? Sorry... I had to say that because it's true and the church cannot hide it anymore-- and many have been hurt and traumatized because of un-scriptural church laws. The Bible promises that ALL sins will be made transparent in the Last Days so all can see. Honestly, are we to think that we can hide from God's eyes and wrath?? But why not read the whole short chapter to get the entire jist, please? Do we really want to walk thru life in ignorance? Do you really think that God will have mercy on you because you CHOSE TO REMAIN IGNORANT? What we 'don't know CAN and WILL kill us-- and send us to hell.... and so "Willful Ignorance" IS certainly Dangerous and Deadly. Be forewarned, Repent and get SAVED.

Friends, Did you know that it is my DUTY to type these words of warning-- as a true biblical Christian? The book of Ezekiel, but also the NT [New Testament] clearly show us that fact.

I have to end this post quickly, but as I went to the store a hour ago, I noticed that some folks are already starting to "stock up" on food stuffs
, as if they expected some sort of calamity coming soon.... And we know that there are many other Christian bloggers who are quietly recommending that we 'buy a little extra' when we shop... so please consider this info 'a word to the wise.' I would say: get some glass gallon jugs and fill them with distilled water, buy boxes of macaroni and cheese, tuna, canned goods, batteries, rice/ beans, etc, etc., study how to use herbs as medicine, etc. I hope that I don't sound insane or extreme, but up in Wisconsin, we have some severe tornadoes and storms, with some power outages.

Take care, folks.

Warm Regards,

By Tony Garland. Spirit and Q. Is there someplace on your site where you've laid out your perception of the end times, including who is involved (the Church, the Jews, etc.) in each piece? And/or biblical support for a pre-tribulation rapture? I have been attempting to study the end times, as I've always been taught that there is a pre-tribulation rapture, but I've never been taught WHY I

Serves: Update

    • 2 3/4 cups water
    • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice, rinsed and drained
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 5 tablespoons grapeseed oil, divided
    • 1 cup eggs, beaten to blend
    • 1 cup large shrimp, peeled and deveined
    • 4 small carrots (about 4 ounces total), peeled and finely diced
    • 3 green onions, white parts thinly sliced and green parts cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
    • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuoc nam)
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 1/3 cup roasted cashews, coarsely chopped


Combine the water, rice, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a saucepan and cook until the rice is tender and water is absorbed. Transfer the steamed rice to a baking sheet to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Heat a large wok over medium-high heat until the first wisp of white smoke comes off of the wok. Add 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil to the wok and tilt the wok to coat. Add the eggs and quickly stir until just cooked, about 30 seconds. Remove the eggs from the wok and set aside on a plate.

Heat 3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil in the wok over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until pink and almost cooked through, about 1 minute.

Add the carrots to the wok and stir fry for 1 minute. Stir in the white parts of the green onions.

Add the cold rice and stir fry for 2 minutes or until heated through. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil.

Add the soy sauce, fish sauce, and sesame oil and continue to stir fry for 1 minute. Stir in the eggs and cashews.

Transfer the rice to a bowl and sprinkle with the green parts of the green onions and serve.

Hello Tom!!

I just wanted to say "thank-you!!" for the comment that you left on my blog!! I also wanted to tell you how glad I am that you opened your heart and home to a Rottweiler who needed a good home!! I know several people who also opened their hearts and homes to dogs from Katrina, and I really admire you and them for doing that!!

I visited your blog this afternoon and am now following you as well. I like some of your thoughts (and the recipes) and look forward to getting to know you a bit better. Just as a caveat I'll add that my husband is from Wisconsin (River Falls) and we went to college in Oshkosh, many moons ago!! I have great memories of our life and time in Wisconsin, and we still have friends from that time in our lives.

Finally I also appreciate your comment about the black text on the blue. It was part of the template for the blog when I set it up, so I guess I haven't given it much thought. However, I'm always open to others opinions, and would be interested to hear which color you think would make it easier to read.

Thanks for taking a minute to let me know!

I hope you've had a good Thursday!! Take care!!

We have a Katrina survivor [rescued] Rottweiler male who is so sweet and smart, and we feel lucky to have a fine, noble dog as he is. He is a life saver.
BTW, Black text on Prussian Blue is very hard to read......
