The Decimation 10

The Great Tribulation Decimation

As a young-person I was taught the Great Tribulation was the Wrath of God and therefore the Body of Christ would be Raptured before the Tribulation Period came upon the world.

You know – the whole…

“For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:9 NKJV).

For some reason the secular world along with Lukewarm Christians were going to suffer 7 years of Judgment just for Judgment sake AND no one could truly explain why.

What I wanted to know was GOD’S plan and no one seemed to have real answers.

Pastors and laypersons gave me platitudes as to why God would visit Double-Jeopardy upon a sinful world – but no one could provide a solid reason behind “The Great Tribulation’s” 7 years of summary Judgment.

(So God brought me to this place) Continue reading

The Cheesy Religion

Part 8

(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)

When he awoke, Tom wasn’t sure where he was or how long he’d been unconscious.  All he knew was that he was waking up to the blinding light of sunlight directly in his eyes.

 

Reflexively he reached up and pulled down the car’s sun-visor.  Thoroughly disoriented, Tom found himself sitting in the front seat of his car in the driveway of his Williams Arizona home.  He had no idea of what happened since the moment he’d passed-out or how he could have traveled nearly two-thousand miles while utterly unconscious.  “How can I be home” he muttered to himself?

For just a moment Tom wondered if he’d dreamt the whole thing.  “What a crazy idea.” he thought. “Maybe, just maybe I fell asleep in the car before starting the trip or somehow dreamt every one of those crazy, impossible events?  What other explanation could there be?” he wondered.

“Whatever really happened,” he wondered, “could he trust what his memories were now telling him?  Maybe it was all some strange influence from that watch?” Continue reading

THE DECIMATION 10 coming soon!

Hey Whirlwind Fans!

The Decimation is coming soon.

The Nail is in the coffin for EVERY End-Times Teaching/Doctrine that does not agree with The Great Consummation Message.

Just like the Apostle Paul knew he was bringing a genuine Gospel message when he wrote Romans 8:1-2

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (KJV)

So we know the message in “This Side of the Whirlwind” comes from the Lord.

How do we know? Continue reading

The Cheesy Religion

Part 7

(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)

Tom cautiously crossed a derelict bridge, one leading into the small ghost town; a bridge which at one time reasonably conveyed horses and wagons across a flowing river.  Sadly now, only a tiny creek remained.  On the far side Tom saw a rotted out sign-post with an old bronze colored sign, hanging askew.  The sign read, “Welcome to Shire”.

 

Without question, the first building Tom explored was once the town’s school house.  Decayed books, chalk writing tablets and a few antique children’s desks littered the floor.  An old chalkboard still hung precariously from one anchored corner and touched the floor with another.  Dust covered the few fragments of glass which remained in the damaged windows; dust and grime marking the passage of weather and time.  An old-fashioned stool also sat off to one side, in what remained of a corner in the Schoolhouse; Tom assumed it was where students once donned those funny coned dunce caps, a punishment designed to elicit shame.  It only took Tom a few moments to scan and assess the dilapidated structure before bounding to the next derelict building.  He wasn’t sure what he was looking for but look he must.

After nearly an hour of rummaging through shops, homes and run-down stables, Tom found himself standing at the center of what was formerly the old town’s square. Continue reading

The Cheesy Religion

Part 6

(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)

Tom pulled Joe up eye to eye and said to his face, “Joe, I’m ordering you to take me to Shire; it’s of the utmost importance!”

“Yes sirs, Mister Tom.”

 

“I means, yes Sirs Captain Tom sir”.  Joe just shrugged his shoulders and then left the powder-cart on the side of the road.  “Comes dhis a way Captain, we haves ta go up dhat dhere road to reach Shire”.  Joe points up the road to where many of the refugees were heading.

As Tom and Joe began walking towards Shire, the Sergeant intercepted them, inquiring with his deep Southern accent, “Pardon me Sir!” The sergeant salutes Tom, “May I ask where you’re takin’ my Powder-Nigger?”

At first, Tom was offended, even set-back by the callused manner in which the sergeant referred to Joe; still, after a moment’s thought he remembered when and where he and Joe were.  Tom replied, “I have need of this nigger, Sergeant!  You will get someone else to resupply your powder cart.  Is that understood?” Continue reading

The Decimation 9B

 Great Consummation Timeline

The Great Consummation is an element within the Latter Days timeline even as the Beginning of Sorrows and Battle of Armageddon are also elements within the Latter Days.  The Great Consummation is the second half of Christ’s two-part covenant (Daniel 9:27)

The Beginning of Sorrows is an element of God’s plan for the Latter Days which has likely already begun, an element which must take place before the Great Consummation can begin.

Consider these elements and then answer the conjecture above for yourself; namely, has the Beginning of Sorrows begun?

Jesus said, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.  See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:6-8 NLJV)

Have you noticed these elements taking place in abundance? Continue reading

Part 5

(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)

Pa pushed Tom back into the barber’s chair.  “Now sits still so I can finish shavin ya, boy.  Ya can’t goes no-wheres till I’s done and finished”.

 

It was all Tom could do to sit still while Mr. White finished his shave.  When Pa finally lifted the barber’s cloth and brushed him off, Tom felt he had to look to Pa’s scrinchie face for approval before getting up.  Pa just nodded; then and only then did Tom spring from the chair and dash to the window.

Pulling his arms back to avoid Tom’s quick extrication, Pa raised his voice, “Boy, you’s wound tighter dan an ole Timex. You’d better settles yourselfs down fors you gives yourself a correlary.” Continue reading

The Cheesy Religion

Part 4

(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)

Though not surprising, neither Tom nor Nancy could find Shire on any Alabama State map.  Nancy did remember her grandmother saying Shire was in the back hills of Southern Alabama, somewhere near or south of Montgomery where her great‑grandmother’s daddy was buried after the Civil War.  So, Montgomery Alabama would be Tom’s starting destination.

 

For the next few days, Tom traveled the highways and back-roads with that Erie voice echoing in his mind.  He couldn’t quite shake the overwhelming feeling of being guided by some other-than-natural force.  While driving Tom dared not touch the watch in his pocket for fear it could spell disaster, Tom did however clutch the watch to his chest each night before falling asleep.

Tom was three long days on the road before he finally pulled up to the Courthouse in Montgomery Alabama.  The pillars at the front of the Municipal-Building made the structure look almost palatial. Continue reading

The Decimation 9A

Great Consummation Timeline

Why do so many End Times teachings get the timeline for the Great Tribulation wrong?

For more than two millennia the Christian world has been kept in a place of prophetic blindness with regards to portions of the End Times message.  Only a portion of the End Times information was released by God BEFORE the biblical period known as, “The Time of the End”.

The world entered that explicit period, “The Time of the End,” when Israel became a nation again in 1948; thus, fulfilling numerous prophecies (two examples: Jeremiah 16:14-16 and 23:1-20). Continue reading
