Preparing for the Coming Storm


How to Prepare for the Coming Storm

Written using excerpts from “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse” chapter 23, “What Now?”.

Now is the time to admonish the saints in the name of the Lord, even as God has commanded.

Accept the ChallengeThe Great Consummation is nearly here. We are to warn the saints, charge the divided lines, and heft the burden of our crosses, for the time of the Beast and his Mark are preparing to be launched.

As the Tribulation Period is not the Wrath of God, the saints of God cannot be raptured until



  1. The wicked one is revealed,
  2. A great falling away has taken place,
  3. And the Tribulation Period has fulfilled its purpose.

Rather, the Tribulation of the Great Consummation is a great and purposed crucible designed to drive a wedge between true Christians and pseudo-Christians; the lukewarm.

During the Tribulation Period, the Lord will separate the Body of Christ from the foresworn; those who have taken the Mark of the Beast or bowed down before the Beast or his image.

God compels His children to endure and overcome the trials of their faith which will take place during the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation. We are to achieve this goal through our testimonies and the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 12:11).

The saints of God will stand against the Beast and his followers during a war that WILL shatter the power of God’s holy people.

The Body of Christ will also be driven from their homes and scattered from their cities; needing to flee into the mountains and wilderness areas for potentially two and a half or more years.

Two-thirds of God’s children will then suffer death, captivity, or the sword before the Second Coming of our Lord and the Rapture of His saints.

We are to set the trumpet[1] to our lips and warnings of what is coming to our mouths in order to inform the Body of Christ; our brothers and sisters who will be caught unaware.

These are things we must do if we are to serve in love by the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Saints of God, obey God’s Word, serve His children, and endure faithfully to the end, whether that end is YOUR death or YOUR Rapture with the saints. Give glory to God in all that you do in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ!

Jesus instructed all of His followers, saying, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbors as yourself.”[2] According to Jesus (the Word made flesh) these are the two greatest commandments.

Now we know a new beginning is coming. One day soon, the Lord will call all believers to flee into the mountains or hide out in the countryside.

We are to prepare and help our brothers and sisters in Christ to do the same.

For a variety of reasons, too many will not believe until it is too late. We must prepare a place of survival, a place in a wilderness or surrounding primitive area, with which we can help as many fellow believers as possible.

We are to aid those who cannot or will not prepare as well as we.

The following are several lists of items, things needed and worth saving in preparation for the Tribulation Period. The end is likely closer than we think.

Warning! Not everyone who claims to be a Christian is in fact a Christian or trustworthy. Not all believers are faithful, as life demonstrates. Screen every potential group member before providing any serious information. We shall know them by their fruits. It is especially important not to reveal your bugout locations, survival arenas or survival stash locations.

 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 7:15–16 KJV)

When the Mark of the Beast becomes mandatory, food, blankets, tools, medications, and clothing items will become unavailable without receiving the Mark. Prepare now for a minimum two-and-a-half-year period. Prepare a place to live where you, your family, and your friends can sustain your existence during the Tribulation Period. Only those who have prepared will be able to successfully avoid authorities. Once you and your family are driven into the wilderness, there will no longer be reasonable access to standard food or survival resources within cities. As you prepare, plan for as many unprepared believers as you can afford. What believer will want to turn away a fellow Christian? Remember Matthew 25:33–46: “Inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.”

Christians will need to band together.

Look for Christian Preppers, those who have like-minded goals, beliefs, and knowledge. Join with such believers in and around your area, those who have developed skills and resources toward surviving. It may be difficult to find others Christians who are equally determined not to receive the Mark of the Beast. Nevertheless, Christians will need to survive the crucible in order to help other Christians. Let every believer survive while helping another believer. Hurry and prepare, for time is shorter than you think!

  • Do not attempt to do everything on your own. Band together with sold-out brothers and sisters in Christ. “For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34b).
  • When possible, form groups of thirty or more. Those who diversify their skill sets stand a better chance for survival.
  • Educate your group in survival techniques.
  • Plan to survive in specific areas throughout multiple wilderness areas.
  • God knows what is coming and knows our every need. Those believers who have money should help those believers with the time to prepare. Those with money may not have time and vice versa. Similarly, those with the necessary survival skills should find and teach other believers how to prepare and survive.
  • Do not disdain those without money, skills, or resources. Teach your brothers and sisters in Christ how to survive. You may need them more than you know.
  • The life of every Christian is on the line.
  • Some people may own and provide lands for storage of survival supplies.
  • Others may build or plant storage containers.
  • Still others may purchase supplies with their financial resources but not be able to secure such supplies in a wilderness arena.
  • Those with money may not have the time to learn the necessary survival skills, wilderness training, or wildlife preparation techniques for a given area.
  • Do not think singularly; serve one another.
  • There is too much to do and too little time in which to do it. Let’s get busy!
  • Do not reveal your survival locations or survival stashes before you know your group fairly well.
  • Do not share too much information about your group with others or online.
  • Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. Don’t be paranoid, merely prepare.

God is with us! He will sustain us during the trials of our faith; leastwise, until such time as we are to either join Christ in the skies or Sheol the grave. Either way, God’s perfect timing.

[1] Hosea 8:1, “Set the trumpet to thy mouth.”

[2] Matthew 22:36–40 and Luke 10:27.

We’ll start with “Survival Stashes” in our next installment.

If eating and keeping warm is important to you, then…

The Beast’s Lion Attribute: This Side of the Whirlwind


, , , , , , , ,

The Beast’s Lion Attributes

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a LION: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (Revelation 13:1-2 KJV)

The Beast will also possess the personality traits of a lion.[1] The Beast’s lion’s nature will produce a person of tremendous power and strength. The lion’s character will shape the Beast into a serious predator that will kill or punish his enemies by rending and tearing their lives or resources. It is also the lion’s disposition to allow others to do his hunting and often killing for his benefit and protection. When offended or wronged, the Beast will demonstrate the lion’s brutally in his willingness to attack his enemies, but only at a safe and discreet distance. God’s people and all those who will not bow down before the Beast will suffer the most; which can be seen in Daniel 11:31-35). Continue reading

The Beast’s Bear Attribute: This Side of the Whirlwind

The Beastly Bear

The Beast’s bear attribute will present a calculating, sly, smooth personality with a slippery nature and character.bear

The Anti-Christ, more accurately termed “the Breast” will appear quiet and unassuming at times appearing to be slow to show his anger or hatred openly.[1] However, the Beast will be extremely vengeful and unforgiving as he moves purposefully and stealthily against anyone who offends or opposes his short reign.

The Beast Rises? This Side of the Whirlwind

The Beast and False Prophet

The most well-received interpretations for the Great Tribulation determine the entire world must be brought to the brink of an apocalypse before the Beast rises up and offers his startling solutions to the world’s current predicaments. According to these teachings, the Beast will be so well received and well respected, humanity will find it nearly impossible to believe he is in fact the malevolent creature spoken of in the books of Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation. He will also be the individual known as the King of the North from the text of Daniel 11. This Satanic personality will not look, sound, or behave like a religious fanatic. Nevertheless, behind the scenes, he will utterly oppose God and His holy people. Though he will be a man of blasphemies, destruction, and much death, he will also hide his baser nature while entering in peaceably and with flatteries into an office of great power. The world leaders and their communities will marvel as the Beast images[6]accomplishes great wonders no one before had ever accomplished. He will change times, customs, and laws to suit his needs, unlike any other frontrunner. This world leader will spread the wealth of his success among his peers and furtive peoples of power, thereby gaining their loyalties, fidelity, and support. The world will perceive him a great man with tremendous leadership skills. Unfortunately, he will efficiently hide his great insecurities and fear. Even as he drowns in a glut of insecurities, the Continue reading

Personality Traits of the Beast

Scripture indicates the Beast will manifest several animalistic personality traits (Revelation 13:2). One of these traits is that of a leopard, reflecting his willingness to kill. He will be swift on his feet, quick-witted, and able to turn an entertaining phrase.babylon_the_harlot Continue reading

The End Times Cinch-Pin


  1. DYK – the entire Pre, Mid and Post-Tribulation doctrines hangs on incorrectly interpreting the first half of Daniel 9:27?
  2. DYK – the idea for a SEVEN year Great Tribulation period which brings “only” God’s Wrath also rests on incorrectly interpreting the first half of Daniel 9:27?
  3. DYK – the concept for Satan forming a covenant with humanity during the Great Tribulation stands solely on the misinterpreted message taken from Daniel 9:27 the first half.

Believe it or not, these statements are true blue.

Artaxerxes Theorem


, , , , ,

The Artaxerxes Theorem

A common miscalculation by the pretribulation and Preteristic persuasions places the starting point for the seven weeks segment of the Seventy Weeks of Daniel prophecy in the year 445 BC.

This date coincides with the approximate date King Artaxerxes issued an edict from his throne to bless and help the Israelites in whatever manner possible to finance the rebuilding of the house of God in Jerusalem (Ezra 7:7–28).

From this start date, an attempt is made to calculate the 483 combined years of the seven weeks and sixty-two weeks segments of the Seventy Weeks of Daniel prophecy and then somehow bring the time line to the end at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Good luck with that…

The primary reason given for starting on this date comes from a slightly mistaken conjecture. It is asserted the Cyrus Decree did not contain provisions for rebuilding the city of Jerusalem itself, the temple, or its walls.

According to proponents for the Artaxerxes Theorem, King Cyrus only commanded the Israelites to rebuild the temple and not the city or walls.

Even if this had been accurate, major problems develop when beginning the Seventy Weeks of Daniel timeline with the date of 445 BC.

To simplify and reveal this error, merely add the years from 445 BC to AD 32. The sum equals 477 years.

This does not take into account the fact Jesus was born in approximately 3 BC. Nor does it seem to matter that the figure must equal at least 483 years before it can be remotely correct.

Oops! I guess they were counting on us not being able to count?


Bear in mind, there is a reasonable level of certainty Jerusalem’s wall was completed in 437 BC. And!

Contrary to prophetic fulfillment, the entire building project for the wall and streets was not completed during a period synonymous with troublesome times (Daniel 9:25).

The prophetic guidelines to fulfill Daniel 9:25b states and requires “… the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times.”

This interpretive element cannot be fulfilled with a start-date of 445 BC.

With Jerusalem, the temple, and the walls being rebuilt between the dates of 536 BC and 437 BC, this time line aligns with a period recognized as trouble and upheaval for Israel.

Aside from the fact 2 Chronicles 36:14–23 also supports the period starting in 538 BC, the 445 BC starting point is just not tenable, since Isaiah 44:28 clearly states, “Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd, and he shall perform all My pleasure, saying to Jerusalem, “You shall be built,” And to the temple, “Your foundation shall be laid”’” (NKJV).

Even if the Cyrus Decree did not include one of these factors, God’s Word does.

Let God’s Word stand true and all others be found “presumptuous”?

You know where to get all the right answers for the coming End Times, right?

Have a blessed day!

Minnesota Success


, , , ,

Hey there “This Side of the Whirlwind’ fans.

Minnesota was a spectacular success.

I watched as the Lord fulfilled a 31 year old vision/prophecy about a blazing bonfire spitting and sparking and generating new pyres of life.

I commented to my wife, Pam, about ten days ago that I had seen the vision once again as we sat discussing the Minnesota trip…

Amazingly she actually remembered the vision!

Then Sunday night as the Blessing House meeting in Minneapolis St. Paul, Victoria I think, was breaking up the Lord revealed the igniting of that bonfire and sparks touching off in the hearts and lives of several of the attendees.

Then I watched as resistance to God’s newly revealed formerly concealed Word struck awe, fear and recognition in the listeners Biblical knowledge.

Then more resistance as the next nights meeting was canceled and I fell “deathly” ill and barely able to breath.

Then the following night the Lord maintained the previously scheduled meeting and afforded me the ability and steadfastness to attend and there I saw in the eyes of the attendees a resistance or rejection of what they thought they might be going to hear.

The few from Sunday nights meeting that came were a welcome sight.

Then, to God be the glory, I watch as over the next 40 minutes resistance turned to curious wonder and curious wonder to near acceptance as God revealed His previously concealed Word which none could deny.  God will complete the task over a little time and study.

Then I further marveled as God revealed the “Great Consummation” End Times message to learned men and women of God who had previously been deceived through a lack of information (God concealed information, a blinding in part).  The scales fell from their eyes as intense interest blossomed within their spirits and hearts.

Finally I saw the wonder, awe in the eyes of those who previous thought they understood this complex area in God’s Word (End Times).

The false teachings of Pre, Mid and Post-Tribulation doctrines as well as A-Millennialism and Preterism melted away as God spilled out the barest portion of the message found in “This Side of the Whirlwind,” the Great Consummation message “and” many could not deny what the Lord was unveiling (Daniel 8::19-26 and 12:4 and 9 and Revelation 10:1-7) concealed.

Daniel 8:26

“And the vision of the evenings and mornings
Which was told is true;
Therefore seal up the vision,
For it refers to many days in the future.

Daniel 12:4

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end.

Daniel 12:9

And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Revelation 10:4

Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.”

I’ll bring you more next time.

Wow, God is good at all times and in every way!

Don’t you just love it when God opens His Word?

I can’t wait to see these results.

Some will be good and some harsh but nothing the Lord has not expected.

Till next time: Ciao and God bless…

By the way, a huge thanks to Todd and Lori and friends…  Big Arizona holy kisses!
