This Side of the Whirlwind was written for Christians living in the last of the Latter Days.  That is you and me. The following definitions apply to all Christians living at this time of prophetic Biblical fulfillment. The rules have changed ever so slightly; in that, “The Mark” (Revelation 13:11-18) did not exist until now.


The following excerpt was taken from “This Side of the Whirlwind” by Steven R. Harrel, page xii.

True Christians Versus Pseudo-Christians

For the purposes of this book [This Side of the Whirlwind], a true Christian is any person who is, above all else, completely committed to his or her relationship with Jesus Christ. A true Christian, whether someone who has just accepted Jesus as his or her ultimate Master and Savior or a believer committed to Christ for a lifetime, utterly recognizes Jesus as both God and the Son of the Living God and the Savior who died for the believer’s sin. A true Christian places his or her relationship with Jesus above everyone and everything, including his or her own life and well-being. According to God’s Word in Romans 10:9–10, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Salvation is a condition of both the heart and faith! Jesus said in John 14:21, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me.”

 The Pseudo-Christian for the purposes of this book was likely once a true Christian who has sadly been deceived through either a lack of knowledge or false doctrines and mistakenly received the Mark of the Beast or who, through a lack of faith or weakness of character, has given up the good fight and either bowed down and worshipped the Beast or received the Mark of the Beast out of fear, hunger, some type of personal need for him- or herself or others, or intimidation. Regardless of the circumstances, only those who endure to the end will be saved.[1]

End of excerpt.


We must endure to the end for these are the days of vengeance; the second half of Christ’s covenant with humanity.

There is no question the world is currently enduring the Latter Days. As the world smolders through the Beginning of Sorrows, that period just before the Great Consummation begins, many short-sighted and foolish believers are already surrendering to the new technology. Bio-implants are on the horizon and the number of individuals receiving the chip is rising.  As mentioned in previous blogs and on the pages of This Side of the Whirlwind, the Mark is here.  A world-wide financial network currently exists and is in full swing.  October 1st 2015 marked one of the last upgrades as the EMV payment system closed the global net.  We are living under a one-world financial network at this moment.  We don’t need a one world government as corporations seal the deal.

Be careful Saints. Remember:

Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, “he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. “And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”  (Revelation 14:9-11 NKJV)

Be vigilant for the days of separations are nearly upon us. The Rapture separates the wheat from the tares.

“Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”  (Matthew 13:30 NKJV)

Be excited; be amazed for we are that final generation, the final harvest awaiting the harvesters. Which group will you be gathered into: True-Christians or Pseudo-Christian?
