Behold, Today Is The Day of Salvation

Are You Saved?

“for He says, “At a favorable time I listened to you, And on a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is “a favorable time,” behold, now is “a day of salvation”—.” -2 Cor 6:2 (NASB)

You can go to church 2 or 3 times a week (perhaps more) and never hear what salvation means, who needs it, how to receive it but yet it’s critical to eternal life with God the Father and Jesus the Son.

We live in a time right now where the Lord is listening intently to those who sincerely want to be saved and seek His face through the instructions found in Scripture (.e. Rom 10:9-10). He is ready for sinners who confess His name as Lord and repent of their sin but on the flip side, there will come a time where He will not strive with man anymore (Gen 6:3). The door is open now but will not always stay open for those that have rejected Jesus, be available (e.g. Ten Virgins – Matt 25, King and Wedding Feast – Matt 22:1-14). There will come an end to this Age of Grace that we are living in now – Gen 6:3; Prov 1:24; John 9:4, so what will you do today? What will become of those that have rejected the King and/or continually mocked Him and rejected His free gift of eternal life? One word … HELL!

Friends, today is the day of salvation, not tomorrow for no one knows if they will even be alive in the morrow. Remember, sinners who mock and are indifferent to the Gospel fall under the indictments of Scripture and their end is in the Wrath of God – Rom 1:18. We cannot continue playing or pretending to be a Christian … you either know Him or you don’t! A litmus test to determine a real Christian … how often do you pray, seek His face, are grievous about your sin (Godly sorrow), repent of your sin, walk with God, read His word (daily)?

Please do not play with the things of God – saying you are a Christian but living a life of unconfessed sin. Today is the day of salvation for everyone. And that salvation gift comes ONLY through the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ – He must be your Savior and Lord.

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12 (ESV)

So I ask you … today if you would pass from this life, would you immediately be ushered into the arms of a loving God who you have claimed on earth as your Lord and Savior and be invited into His rest, or will you, living a life of rebellion, obstinately, and unrepentantly rejecting God’s message of salvation, be directed to the waiting room of hell like the rich man in Luke 16 was?

What say you to about these things today? Have you been saved by the Blood of the Lamb of God who took yours and mine penalty of sin and bore it in an agonizing death on the Cross? Folks, it’s time to seriously think of this. We live in a world of almost constant turmoil, upheaval, deception, lies, and twisted truths. America and the rest of the world are clearly seeing the signs of the last to the last days echoed in Bible Prophecy. Are you watching? Are you listening? What will you do if, in a twinkling of an eye, real Christians are removed by the rapture as defined in Scripture? (i.e. 1 Th 4:16-18; 1 Cor 15:51-52). The time to weigh these things and decide strongly on a course correction in your life is now.

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

“My soul, wait in silence for God alone, For my hope is from Him. 6- He alone is my rock and my salvation, My refuge; I will not be shaken. 7- My salvation and my glory rest on God; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. 8- Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” -Psa 62:3-8 (NASB)

GLORY TO GOD!

Despise Not the Words of God Almighty!

How Will You Discern The Truth From the Lies?

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” -John 8:31-32 (ESV)

Spreading across our cultures and societies is a thickening fog of deception, lies, untruths, and the twisting of truth. Evil is being proclaimed as good and good as evil, darkness as light and light as darkness – Isa 5:20. This deceptive fog is engulfing everyone from our leaders on down. Good moral values are being shredded into unidentifiable chards of refuse and Biblical standards clearly vaporized by political correctness. Friends, [Biblical] truth is being compromised, twisted, bent, and deformed to fit into the horrible contemporary framework of our ever-increasing Godless culture. Truth is vanishing and lies are proliferating. You see Satan as the father of lies has had thousands of years to perfect his art. Very seldom does he use a frontal attack but is highly accurate on flanking and rear incursions. For he knows men’s hearts; he knows their soft spots left unprotected and vulnerable. He fires blitzes of wicked, fiery, deceptive darts right at the weakest part of our Biblically unfortified souls, the parts left defenseless from the truth and easy prey for his wily devices and schemes. 

So what do we do? How do we guard our hearts and minds against this assault of Biblical truth?

First we must know what our Bible says about these things. That means we need to dig in and study it. America is abundantly rich in Bible resources, other nations maybe not so much. So there will be no excuses for American Christians to fail to read God’s Holy Writ. None, notta, zip!  Jesus said that we need to abide or continue in His word. And so by doing we will know His truth and these truths will set us free from the evil lies spreading like wildfire today. But wait … there’s another truth found here – in verse 43 He “slaps” the Jews hard when they argued with Him about sin and its enslavement, saying they could not bear to hear His word. Folks, that means they didn’t hear the truth because they knew not His word and therefore they didn’t know Him.

God is extremely clear, there is no mudding of the waters of truth when He speaks. He wants us to know Him without exception. There is to be no compromise, no putting Him on the back burner of our lives, no putting anyone individual/s or things ahead of Almighty God being daily on the throne of our lives. Jeremiah, a valiant prophet thousands of years ago by penning this truth from God Himself:

“Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24- But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord..” -Jer 9:23-24 (KJV)

We must abide in God. We must know Him. We must read His word as the utmost priority in our lives. We must know the rock solid truth of His word. For only then can we separate from the web of lies and deceit rapidly spreading over this world. The darkness is getting darker and men are loving it – John 3:19.  Now is the time to shred the cares of this world and take up the word of God like never before. I venture to say that if your beliefs in God are casual, if your faith is reckless and wishy-washy, believing what the world serves up more so than God’s word, you are being deceived and a target from the Devil’s fiery darts. You must get into His word and read it for understanding. 

“To whom shall I speak and give warning, That they may hear? Behold, their ears are closed And they cannot listen. Behold, the word of the Lord has become for them a rebuke; They take no delight in it..” -Jer 6:10 (NASB)

Take the authority and power we have as real born-again Christians, put on the full armor of God, with your feet shod (prepared) with the fullness of the Gospel and push back on the schemes of wickedness. On untruths. On lies. On wickedness. However, theres’ a catch… In order to do these things you must be grounded and founded in God. You must seek His face and know Him.

You must spend quality time in His word.

There are no alternatives, and no excuses for a professing Christian. Listen to what John says about those who don’t abide in Christ’s teaching:

“Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.” -2 John 1:9 (NASB)

Friends, the time is now to get things right with God. Don’t “play” Him like you perhaps play your neighbors or friends. Don’t think you know better or are wiser (in your own eyes). Don’t think that you are exempt because you attend church regularly, yet seldom read and mediate on His word. Don’t think you know Him yet make tons of excuses of not praying or reading your Bible. The times are growing more and more evil, truth is being extinguished and these things will not get better as prophesied in God’s word. Don’t be fooled by the clueless pastors saying things are OK or those that conveniently refrain from teaching about what is coming. Read your Bible and know God, seek His face daily, read His word daily, pray without ceasing. Seek after His wisdom, understanding and knowledge like you are seeking for gold – Prov 2:4.

Now is the time, don’t put it off. Know the truth and be set free. Abide in Him and continue in His word. In this you will have prepared your heart, mind and soul to discern the truth from the lies. Be prepared and be ye ready. Amen.

If We Are Experiencing Severe Shortages Now, How Bad Will Things Get When The Economy Starts Tanking Again?

If We Are Experiencing Severe Shortages Now, How Bad Will Things Get When The Economy Starts Tanking Again?

By Michael Snyder — May 6, 2021

Inflation and shortages are the two big stories for the U.S. economy this week.  In recent days I have done multiple articles about inflation, and so today I want to focus on the widespread shortages that we are currently witnessing.  At this moment, the U.S. economy is experiencing more shortages than it did at any point during 2020.  I know that statement sounds quite outlandish, but it is true.  During the early stages of the pandemic, there were temporary shortages of toilet paper, hand sanitizer and other items, but now there are severe shortages throughout many sectors of the economy, and quite a few of those shortages will not be so temporary.

On Thursday, Business Insider published a list of some of the most serious shortages that we are going through at the moment…

-Computer chips
-Used cars and rental cars
-Gas
-Plastics and palm oil
-Truckers and rideshare drivers
-Homes and vacation houses
-Lumber
-Household products like toilet paper and tampons
-Furniture
-Chicken
-Bacon and hot dogs
-Imported foods like cheese, coffee, and olive oil
-Chlorine
-Corn

That is quite a list!

The COVID pandemic suppressed output for many industries for an extended period of time, and meanwhile our “leaders” have been pumping trillions and trillions of fresh dollars into the system.

So now we have way too many dollars chasing way too few goods and services, and this is causing tremendous inflation and very painful shortages.

Just look at what is happening to the steel industry.  Changes in supply and demand have pushed up the price of steel to “nearly triple the 20-year average”

After bottoming out around $460 last year, US benchmark hot-rolled coil steel prices are now sitting at around $1,500 a ton, a record high that is nearly triple the 20-year average.

Steel stocks are on fire. US Steel (X), which crashed to a record low last March amid bankruptcy fears, has skyrocketed 200% in just 12 months. Nucor (NUE) has spiked 76% this year alone.

Much more importantly for the average American, there are now chicken shortages all over the country, and prices have soared into the stratosphere

After a year promoting takeout wings and crispy chicken sandwiches, restaurants including KFC, Wingstop Inc. and Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. say they are paying steep prices for scarce poultry. Some are running out of or limiting sales of tenders, filets and wings, cutting into some of their most reliable sales.

Independent eateries and bars have gone weeks without wings, owners say. Chicken breast prices have more than doubled since the beginning of the year, and wing prices have hit records, according to market-research firm Urner Barry.

“Weeks without wings?”

Oh the humanity!

If we don’t get this crisis under control soon, the U.S. may not be able to set yet another all-time record for obesity in 2021.

Propane tanks and chlorine tablets are also in short supply.  As a result, many Americans may not be able to enjoy their grills and their pools as they normally do this summer

A nationwide shortage of pool products is making chlorine tablets and propane tanks hard to come by and increasing prices right as the summer months approach.

“In this heat, if you don’t take care of your pool properly algae will start growing,” said David Sarafyan, a pool supply store employee. “Your pool will pretty much become a swamp.”

Hopefully at least some of these shortages will start to disappear in the weeks ahead.

But if we are seeing this many shortages during a “recovery”, what in the world is our economy going to look like when things start getting really bad again?

This should be a wake up call for all of us, because things are going to start getting really bad again a lot sooner than many people think.

But for now, Americans are swimming in cash thanks to the trillions and trillions of dollars that have been showered on them.

All of that money has to go somewhere, and unfortunately it is going into some of the most ridiculous things imaginable.

My regular readers already know how I feel about Dogecoin.  It is not a “currency” by any stretch of the imagination.  I have been tempted to call it a “collectible”, but normally a “collectible” is something that you can hold in your hands.

At least speculators were chasing something real during “Tulip mania” in 1636 and 1637.  Dogecoin is just a bunch of digital ones and zeros.

Dogecoin does not have any innate value whatsoever, but thanks to Elon Musk and a bunch of Reddit fanboys, the price of Dogecoin is up more than 100 percent this week alone.

For the year, it is up more than 14,000 percent

That means an investor who paid in $1,000 on January 1 would now have around $120,000.

This year alone it has soared over 14,000%, from $0.00468 on December 31, taking it past more widely used cryptocurrencies such as the Tether stablecoin and XRP to become the fourth-largest by market capitalization.

Yesterday I wrote about something that makes me want to vomit, but now I think that I have found something that may make me want to vomit even more.

If you can believe it, Dogecoin now has a market capitalization that is greater than Moderna, Ford Motor Company or Twitter

A market capitalization of $78 billion puts Dogecoin, founded in 2013, ahead of other more well established brands and companies including Sherwin-Williams which is valued at $75.8 billion; Dell Technologies, value $75 billion; Moderna, value $63.1 billion; Ford Motor Company, valued $45.2 billion; and Twitter, value $42.1 billion.

The mascot from Pets.com eventually came to symbolize the collapse of the dotcom bubble, and I think that the stupid dog on the Dogecoin logo should symbolize this current financial bubble when it finally implodes.

Tomorrow, more keyboard commandos will pour their stimulus checks into Dogecoin hoping to get rich quick.
