LA Times:

  • Mysterious Illness strikes West-Coast: Southern California Health Officials today reported a fifth victim fallen to what many are unofficially calling Jameson’s Disease.  The disease informally named after David Jameson, first victim to fall prey to this new pathogen, has been plaguing the greater Los Angeles area for more than three weeks.  Jameson’s swift prodromal period is followed by severe bloating, fever, fatigue, muscle pain and rapid muscular degeneration.  The last stages for Jameson’s has thus far produced high fever and a severe systemic type of hematidrosis: more commonly referred to as blood-sweats with patients bleeding through pores in their skin, out of their eyes, nose, ears and sometimes genitalia causing system wide hemorrhaging, acute blood loss and finally death.  “Frankly,” says one unnamed California health official, “We are baffled by the origin and evolution of this new disease.  Though Jameson’s tends to present with signs and symptoms similar to that of Ebola or Dengue Fever its co-morbidities are constantly changing, varied and enigmatic.  We are not yet certain what we’re dealing with from patient to patient.  More grave is the fact that this disease sprung up from nowhere and seems to have cropped up all over the world in just a few weeks.”

Shaped and Transformed Into?

What are you learning?

If you were called upon to prepare a group of people for a wide-ranging existence…

Where they needed to love the unlovable and show kindness to those who did not seem to deserve kindness…

What kind of environment would you prepare for your people?

Would you not create an environment where the principles and characteristics of kindness and love were not generally displayed and seldom offered on a daily basis?


Wouldn’t you instead put your people face to face with Continue reading

This Side of the Whirlwind: The Angels Asked

The Angels Asked

Have you ever seen an Angel?

I did, when I was nine years old.  It was in the skies overhead when I saw it.  The Angel simply looked at me and smiled.  Then I was immediately filled with the Holy Spirit and began to hear God’s voice.  Truly an amazing experience!

During the course of our ministry this question occasionally comes up, so we’ll address it.

Here goes…

Who are the Children of God scripture alludes to in Revelation 7:13-14; you know, those Saints of God clothed in white robes?

Well, according an Angel of the Lord, and I quote: Continue reading

Thursday, October 19th, 2017, One day after the Chicago Incident

The shouting could be heard as far away as Lou Mitchell’s Bakery and Market on Jackson Blvd; that would be equivalent to about two blocks in any direction.

“I don’t care what your stinking excuse is Jax, you somehow allowed those two-bit preachers to dodge us all night, time and again!” Sandar said yelling in Jax’ face, “And I can’t believe you’re blaming Julia for stopping you!  It would’ve been, uh, uh, such perfect timing.” Raising his voice another decibel Sandar shouts, “Aah, you imbecile!”

Outrage coloring her face, Julia joins their shouting spree, “Listen here, Mr. Sakarri, I will not be spoken about or to in that fashion!  Jax neither allows nor…!”

“Ah, shut up you stupid woman!  You ruined everything!” Sandar sneers as he turns towards Jax again. Continue reading

Oh God, What If?

The Quest:

Oh God, what if –

I were to You obey –

With all my life, through all my days,

endure my cross, obey Your will,

regardless the pain or strife I feel

Bear humiliations and sorrow’s

cold breath

Brave disgrace and live bereft

Face the choice of a martyr’s short, short life

Just to live my life for Christ?

To Sacrifice:

The Chicago Incident

(An Ongoing Saga by Steven R. Harrel)

(Taken from concepts found in “This Side of the Whirlwind”)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017, early morning…

Mike Maylers and TS Whirlwind arrived early to Chicago’s University campus.  Without question the two friends knew they were behind enemy lines here at Chicago U.  They arrived early to ensure they could set up for Mike’s presentation in Polonsky Hall before opposition could arrive and create obstacles.

According to Dr. Maylers, presentations at Universities were well worth the troubles they evoked given the opportunities they also provided for networking and connections and meeting scientists he would not otherwise likely meet.  “Chicago U,” he said, “provided just such an environment with several Scientists’ writings suggesting friendly advocacy towards Intelligent Design (ID).” Still, opposition was likely and even expected in these bastions of Darwinian obstinacy.

Just two week earlier protests on this very campus, though in a different Hall, stifled Doctor Fredric Tour, a Professor of Chemistry and Theoretical Mathematics from the University of Harvard.  Doctor Tour’s presentation focused on Nano-Technologies, graphene nanoribbons and some of the more recent scientific developments in science including both Biological and non-Biological Systems; pointedly, Dr. Tour’s areas of scientific research in many cases robustly supported Intelligent Design, leastwise with regards to the origins of first life and or proto-cellular development.

This Side of the Whirlwind: Favorite Book Review!



October 18, 2016

Full disclosure: Steve Harrel is my dad.

At a cursory glance, one might consider my opinion biased. And it is but from this proximity comes a review that only I could write- a review of the author’s character.

My earliest memories of my dad are him singing praise and worship and to this day that’s what you’re going to get if you spend even a day with him. His life goal is to see God’s Name lifted high.

My dad’s integrity is like something out of an old western: say it like it is and prize honor over saving face. He will tell the truth without pulling punches and he will be the first to tell you how he is a sinner saved by grace. With that intensity comes a few more exclamation points then I would have liked in this book : ) He’s a passionate man and that carries over into his writing style : )

About 12-13 years ago I remember my dad buying a giantic white board and plotting out all the references in the Bible to the “End Times”. It was a staple fixure in our home through my teenage years. He’s spent all these years digging through the Word to pull out the truths that only God could have mapped out for its sheer grandness. He includes this chart in the book in a graph and it’s mind-blowing seeing all the “fore thought” God put into the latter days. Thankfully, my dad helped make it much easier to follow along then having to do this yourself.

Something that struck me about this book was the volume of Scripture included throughout. My dad will challenge you time and time again to look at the Word for yourself and see if his conclusions hold up to the Word. One thing my dad instilled in me is that I also have the ability to say it like it is and after reading this book, I feel

that it is sound with the Word.


The End is coming and as Jesus and Paul said (Luke 12:56/Romans 11:25/1 Thessalonians 4:13) we are to be informed about the times in which we live. Are you?
