Time is short. Brothers and Sisters in Christ, more than ever before – it is time to commit to God’s Word; compel ourselves to serve our fellow Believers (family in Christ) and become determined to endure to the end of our lives, whether that end is to the our own death or to the time of Christ’s second coming, the Rapture. imagesact9zo7yWe need to know the event is real and that until that time we can make a difference in the lives of many Christians.  Still, we must personally prepare!  We need to sink our teeth into His will for our lives and prepare for the coming storm.

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” (Luke 10:27). According to Jesus, these are the two greatest commandments.

Now we know a new beginning is coming, the Great Consummation. One day soon, the Lord will call all believers to flee into the mountains or escape to places we’ve prepared in remote environments. We are to prepare and help our brothers and sisters in Christ to do similarly.


The purpose for God’s crucible is to challenge us to remain faithful.  The crucible will refine us who are of the Body of Christ making us white even until the time of the end (Daniel 11:31-35).  We will be those who remained faithful. This is not an element related to salvation for we are saved by the blood of the Lamb by grace; nevertheless, the crucible is an exercise in our commitment to Christ but more importantly in the fulfillment of divine prophecy.  Through this process we become the Bride who makes herself ready (Revelation 19:7).  We will be those who overcame by the blood of the Lamb and through the word of our testimonies.  We are the people who loved our relationships with our God more than we loved our own lives (Revelation 12:11). melting_crucible1We are to be those who overcame to the End and represent that spotless and unblemished Bride in Christ (Ephesians 5:24-27).  What a tough but amazing privilege.  And it will be tough in the extreme for many.




For those who have read the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind” you will understand the Split Versing element found in Zechariah 13:7-9.  Verse 7 relates to the time of Christ, the First Half of the Covenant of Jesus Christ.  Verses 8 and 9 relate to the Time of the Gentiles also called the Church Age; yet more specifically, to the Second Half of the Christ’s Covenant also called The Great Consummation. Here is what that passage says:

“Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, against the Man who is My Companion,” says the LORD of hosts. “Strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; then I will turn My hand against the little ones.  8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says the LORD, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them.  I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘The LORD is my God.’ ” (Zechariah 13:7-9 NKJV)

You see, we are in the last stages of The Latter Days. The Latter Days began when Israel became a Sovereign State in May of 1958.  According to several prophecies, Deuteronomy chapters 30 and 31; Jeremiah 16:14-17; Jeremiah 23:7-8; Hosea 3:3-5 and several more the Latter Days will be in effect when Israel is restored to the lands of their forefathers, the mountains of Israel.  Then according to Daniel 9:24-27 (The Seventy Weeks of Daniel) and the Parable of the Fig Tree found in the four gospels and the passage in Psalms 90:10 every vision and prophecy related to the End Times will be fulfilled during the year of vengeance (Isaiah 61:2 and Luke 21:22) also known as the Great Consummation which will span 3½ years.  Below you will find several prophecies and signs which confirm the Latter Days are in effect and that the coming of the Great Consummation is about to take place.  There is no question God’s plan for the End Times is coming to fruition.

signs of the Times

  1. Pastors scattering God’s flock (Jeremiah 23:1-8).
  2. False Prophecy rampant within the church (Jeremiah 23:9-32).
  3. The existence of The Mark which currently exists.
  4. Vulgar and propane Priests and Prophets (Jeremiah 23:11-15).
  5. Wickedness abounds (Matthew 24:7).
  6. The Temple is about to be rebuilt (Revelation 11:1-2).
  7. Churches seeking fables and fairytales over sound doctrine (2 Tim. 4:3-4).
  8. The Beast Changing Times and Laws (Daniel 7:25).
  9. Scoffing of God’s Word becomes common (2 Peter 3:3).
  10. Knowledge shall increase exponentially (Daniel 12:4).
  11. Mankind will travel over great distance in short periods of time (Daniel 12:4).
  12. Israel restored as a nation on lands of forefathers (Jeremiah 16:14-15).
  13. These are the major signs thus far fulfilled – but not all of the signs fulfilled.

For a variety of reasons, too many Christians will not believe until it is “way – WAY” too late. We (those who see the coming storm) need to prepare a place of survival, a place in some nearby or distant wilderness; surrounding primitive area; forested region where we can save as many fellow believers (family) as possible. We are to aid those who cannot or will not prepare for themselves or as well as we can. The following post will reveal several lists of items, things needed and worth saving in order to prepare for the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation that IS coming. The end is likely closer than we think.

For more information on how to make this happen get your copy of “This Side of the Whirlwind.” The 23rd chapter of the book provides a cursory survival guide and list of essential tools, products, food sources vital to our survival.  You will not go wrong if this is all you manage to provide by means of survival equipment.


We will overcome the Beast by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimonies, and we will love our walk with God more than we love our own lives!

Oh Death, where is thy sting? Oh Grave, where is thy victory? (1 Corinthians 15:55)

As for me and my house… We will serve the Lord! (Joshua 24:15)
