“What Must I Do to Be Saved?”

“…Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” -Acts 16:30 (KJV)

Paul and Silas where ministering at Philippi and because of their preaching and healing of a demon-possessed girl they were beaten by order of the magistrates and threw them into prison. They also had their feet locked down in the stocks. But at midnight they prayed and sang hymns to God. Then suddenly there was an earthquake and the foundations of the prison were shaken and all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains fell off. This in itself is a miracle worth  further study bit for today we will focus in on what the jailer of the prison said next.

Thinking that all the prisoners escaped the jailer was ready to kill himself but Paul said hold on don’t do anything we are all still here. The jailer went immediately to Paul and Silas trembling before them and asked one question – “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?“. Now we don’t know if the jailer heard them praying and singing but I suspect he did and was moved in his spirit to ask them this question as the earth shook beneath his feet.

Paul answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household“. Paul and Silas then ministered the word of the Lord to him and he became saved.  You see the jailer wanted to know what he had to do to escape the future judgment as he was now aware of the power of God. One must have faith and believe that the Lord was/is who He claimed to be and believe in the things He did – 1 Cor 15:3-4.

“but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” -John 20:31 (ESV)

Friends to be saved you must profess the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and believe in your heart (soul) that God raised Jesus from the dead. You must then confess your sin and repent living in holiness (Heb 12:14). For without repentance no man shall see the Kingdom of God – Luke 13:3. These are our instructions for obtaining eternal life. We must be born again (saved) in order to live with the Lord in His kingdom forever. There is nothing else on the face of the earth that will get you saved. But you may ask “saved from what?“. I say, saved form His wrath which is surely coming. Saved from hell – which is certainly a reality and certainly a place of endless torment.

“Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10- For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.:” -Rom 10:9-10 (ESV)

So there it is and now the big question is what will you do about it if you are not really saved today? Will you answer His call and follow Him or keep rejecting Him and procrastinating until some future time which may never come? Today’s the day of salvation, not tomorrow or next week. Today! Seek Him beloved for we never know when we will take our last breath and by then your fate and mine is sealed – for heaven or for … hell!

Woes in Nature Continue – Why is This Happening?

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Woes in Nature Continue

Folks please pay attention to what is happening in nature all over the world and also in the heavens – (huge fireball plunges towards Russia – here). The Lord said in His word that in the last days before He returned there would be:

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; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. ”  -Luke 21:25-26 (KJV)

Yes, I write about this quite a bit. IMHO and based on years of prophetic studies through God’s word – this is one of the ways He warns people to stop sinning, repent and get right with Him and … accept His Son as Lord and Savior. Is this occurring today – YES!!! i.e. Noah and the flood. For approx 120 years Noah preached righteousness (2 Pet 2:5) on the earth and nobody, I repeat nobody listened to him. Result – they were destroyed. Only Noah and his family survived – 8 people from millions. What is the Christian church missing today? Preaching the sometimes offensive truth!!!

Mankind has rejected God and Jesus in favor of idols, wealth, self-righteousness and the desires of the flesh. We are being warned that the time is short and we had better clean up our act with God because one of these days all hell is going to break loose on the earth and the “fake” Christians that aren’t raptured will have a difficult time being left behind. Think I’m making this up? Who prays these days and seeks after the Lord like one seeking gold? Who goes to church to meet with God and worship Him even if the message is offensive? (Provided the cowards in the pulpit man-up and teach the full council of God).

Friends, God is telling us something through nature. This is how He communicates. He’s not going to appear on the TV news and tell people to get right with Him. He doesn’t work that way. Read your Bible. Look how He talked to Moses – through a burning bush that didn’t burn. How did He warn Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go? Ten nasty plagues!

Beloved – now is the time to get right with the Living Creator God (2 Cor 6:2). We are not promised tomorrow, not even the next minute. Take the time while or after you read this to follow the instructions of Rom 10:9-10 and sincerely mean it.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” -Rom 10:13 (KJV)

“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” -Psa 145:18 (ESV)

Trade War Gets Serious: Between US and China – Is About to Go “Nuclear”

Editor’s Note: I would highly recommend to everyone in the US to pay attention to this. There is no more time to be sleeping upside down in a post hole. Wake Up for now is the time!

Get ready, get prepared, get right with God while we still can find Him – Amos 8:11.

The following article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. His articles are spot on and his relentless research gives us a glimpse of what clearly may happen in the days ahead. (Used by permission)

Things Just Went Nuclear In Our Trade War With China, And A Giant Shockwave Is About To Hit The U.S. Economy

By Michael Snyder, in June 2018

It is difficult to find the words to describe just how serious America’s trade war with China is becoming.  As you will see below, the two largest economies on the entire planet are on a self-destructive course that almost seems irreversible at this point.  The only way that this trade war is going to come to a rapid conclusion is if one side is willing to totally submit and accept an extremely bitter and humiliating defeat on the global stage, and that is not likely to happen.  So in the short-term, and probably beyond that, we are going to experience a tremendous amount of economic pain.  In fact, if one wanted to create a recipe for economic disaster, it would be hard to beat having the Federal Reserve dramatically raise interest rates at the exact same time that the U.S. government is starting trade wars with all of the other major economic powers simultaneously.  Unless something drastically changes in the very near future, there is no way that the U.S. is going to be able to get through this without experiencing severe pain.

Many had hoped that President Trump would settle down after the initial salvos in this new trade war, but instead on Sunday evening we learned that he has decided to go nuclear.  The following comes from CNBC

President Donald Trump plans to bar many Chinese companies from investing in U.S. tech and to block additional technology exports to China, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday evening, citing people familiar with the matter.

The two measures are set to be announced by the end of the week, and are intended to counter Beijing’s Made in China 2025 — a Chinese initiative to be a global leader in technology.

A report from Reuters included some additional very important details.  Apparently this new plan would ban any firm that has 25 percent Chinese ownership or greater from investing in any U.S. companies that have “industrially significant technology”…

The U.S. Treasury Department is drafting curbs that would block firms with at least 25 percent Chinese ownership from buying U.S. companies with “industrially significant technology,” a government official briefed on the matter said on Sunday.

So we are not just talking about “tech firms”.  The Trump administration is greatly concerned about Chinese theft of our technology, and without a doubt this has been rampant, and so the goal is to keep the Chinese from investing in any more of our companies that have important technology.

And theoretically that could include nearly all of them.

For years, the Chinese have been pouring massive amounts of money into the United States and have been investing very heavily in our industries.  Now that is going to come to an almost full stop, and the consequences are going to be enormous.

Yes, we certainly need to stand up to China, but it sure is going to be nearly impossible to try to replace all of that Chinese investment from other sources.

And of course this latest announcement comes less than two weeks before the U.S. and China are scheduled to begin imposing massive tariffs on one another.  The following comes from Bloomberg

On July 6, the U.S. is set to impose tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods. Tariffs on an additional $16 billion in Chinese products will go into effect after a public review period is completed. When Beijing vowed to retaliate on the same amount of U.S. goods and under the same timeline, Trump directed his U.S. Trade Representative to identify an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods that could be subject to a 10-percent tariff.

Donald Trump is playing hardball with China and is betting that they will fold.

I can already tell you that the Chinese will not fold.

So we are going to suffer some pretty severe consequences, and Finian Cunningham detailed some of these in a recent article.  First of all, Chinese tariffs on our agricultural products will likely hit our farmers really hard

If China goes ahead with threats to impose counter-tariffs on US agricultural products, such as soybeans, corn and meat, the impact on farm states like Iowa, Idaho and Illinois across the mid-west will be severe. Voters from these states were crucial to Trump getting elected to the White House in 2016. By taking the US into a trade war with China, Trump will end up hitting his own political base hardest.

Secondly, U.S. consumers will begin seeing significantly higher prices for consumer goods at our major retailers
