2 Timothy 1:7 God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind.
Updated: Feb 21
Warning - This Edition Is Jammed Packed Folks!
OUR BORDERS [within and without]:
Nothing Is What It Appears: So much continues to happen in our world from the devastating earthquake in Turkey to the China’s spy balloons and UFOs’ to the disastrous chemical explosion in East Palestine, Ohio. I am sure you have been following the never-ending stream of news. It is non-stop terror. Sometimes there seems to be too much information, other times too little information, meaning purposefully withheld information. What are we to believe?
Believe nothing is what it appears. I want to exert some caution, as there is much deception in our world today being broadcast to us. It can be used to create ‘fear’, more ‘out of the norm’ conditioned thought patterns, and distractions to keep you away from the truth. How do we discern the truth in the midst of it all? First by knowing THE TRUTH through scripture. Scripture has been tested and tried and proven itself to be the accurate. God tells us beforehand what will happen. Not necessarily every step that will transpire to get there, but pretty detailed information that only ‘All Knowing’ God can state will happen with all certainty before it happens.
Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare before they spring forth [before they happen]. I tell you of them.”
Isaiah 48:3 I foretold the former things long ago; they came out of My mouth and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted; and they came to pass.
Jesus said in John 13:19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I AM.” Most translations add He in italic, but this is Jesus again stating Who He Is – the I AM [Greek - egō eimi/ Hebrew ’eh·yeh,] – declaring His absolute eternal existence as He did to Moses at the burning bush in Exodus 3:14 saying, “Thus, you shall say to the children of Israel ‘I AM’ has sent me to you.”
God has admonished us who are living in this incredible time of history, that He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control (sound mind; wise discretion) [2 Timothy 1:7].
So, in short, firm yourselves up with Truth and read in-between the lines of what is happening in our world today. Build Back Better & the Great Reset is happening – The Beast System being made ready for the final Antichrist. Everything has to be torn down first in order to create their mock utopia that will end up enslaving rather giving freedom being promised. I pray you will use wise discretion when listening and watching today’s headlines as nothing is what it appears to be.
What else are we to do? Pray. Pray for those in Turkey, pray for those in Ohio, pray that people will see through the smoke and mirrors and look up and know that the appearing of Jesus is nigh at the door.

More information on ‘balloons and UFOs’ along with my personal thoughts. Will these ‘alien’ deceptions be heightened for the purpose to blame ‘alien abduction’ when Jesus appears to ‘Woosh’ His church to Himself in the clouds? Either way, they are not extraterrestrial beings as we have seen in numerous movies such as ET or Independence Day, but rather they are fallen angels and demonic entities that are more extra or intra-dimensional beings making themselves visible as the veil thins between the visible and invisible. Another possibility is the leaders of countries are using those nifty technologies created dubbed NASA’s Project Blue Beam that, of course, is being heralded as a conspiracy ‘theory’.

BIBLE PROPHECY UPDATES (Catching Up):
J D Farag discusses how the distractions of these last days are drawing us away from Jesus, our first love, and identifying these distractions specifically [including some mentioned above in my opening comments] and what we are to do practically with them. Click here to Listen: Prophecy Update February 19 2023, Pastor J C Farag.
Pastor J D outlines why any prophecy teaching that’s not a testimony of Jesus, or prophecy teacher that does not point to Jesus, is not the Spirit of Prophecy – Jesus being that Spirit of Prophecy. Revelation 19:10 John fell at his feet [an angel] to worship him. But he said to John, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.” Click here to Listen: Prophecy Update January 29, 2023, Pastor J D Farag.
Past J D Farag explains how and why everything that’s happening in the world today has the common denominator of being against Jesus Christ.

MY TOP 3 PICKS!
Pick #3: Interesting news I came across is this Reuters report that on February 13th, the United States Embassy in Moscow said, “U.S. citizens residing or travelling in Russia should depart immediately.” This due to the ongoing war with Ukraine. Apparently, there are a lot of arbitrary arrests or harassment by Russian law enforcement agencies. United States tells citizens: Leave Russia immediately [Reuters Feb 13 2023] /
Pick #2: What is wrong with this picture? Protect your children parents and stand up for what is right no matter the cost. Our children are being brainwashed and seduced by evil propaganda. Do you know what your children are being taught? Sign of our times, when good is called evil and evil is called good: Chicago Dad Placed On Watchlist After Opposing Pornography In Schools [ZeroHedge, by Tyler Durden, Feb 15 2023] /
Pick #1: Building of the Tech Tower of Babel and creating a man-made god for our age – AI. From AI’s ChatGPT to AI helping make peace with Israel to AI meeting up with IoT (Internet of Things). What could possibly go wrong? AI is a computer technology that simulates human behavior and intelligence and aims at making machines smarter and or more efficient. AI operates completely independently. Then we have the IoT [Internet of Things] that connects the various devices over the internet and is completely dependent on AI. Then consider the above-mentioned conspiracy ‘theory’ of nations being able to put into play NASA’s Project Blue Beam, when you read from back in 2017 that researches have created holograms that change from one image to another dubbing it a breakthrough that could lead to the development of animated holograms liken to Star Wars-style messages. I have to think that with our advanced technologies, digital twinning, and more, that Project Blue Beam doesn’t seem too far-fetched. But these technologies are taking away humanity’s real purpose of living, of our unique God given creativity and our critical thinking. They are setting up a tech god who will of course enable you to live eternally as a god yourself in a cloud [matrix]. Hmm… sorry, but I don’t want to be an AI operated god living in a cloud. Do you? And that is exactly what ‘transhumanism’ is all about. It is a lie that will entrap mankind forever in their eternal doom.

COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT...
America is imploding from the inside. When any nation pushes the One True Living God out in every part of life, God will eventually turn it over to do that that it desires.
Psalms 82:11-12 But My people would not listen to My voice, and Israel would not obey Me. So, I gave them up to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices [walk in their own plans].” I can see why America is not mentioned at the end of the age in the Bible. It is evident our nation has become “Unholy” from the government to the entertainment to pride in heralding their way, their truth, and their life and ways of living it – man’s unholy plans and devices.
When we see God’s enemy, blatantly being heralded and worshipped and applauded, I can only pray “God forgive them they know not what they do.” Yet, many are ‘knowing what they are doing”. Are we seeing God giving America over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices and their own gods as evil is openly worshipped in plain sight on many platforms. Placing these overt demonic rituals in front of our eyes, in front of children, such as did the Grammys and Super Bowl commercials and half time event, shows how America is getting darker and darker as we approach the end of the age outlined to us in scripture. Society continues to silence the Voice of God. God says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.” [Isaiah 5:20-21].
Therefore, it is not surprising to see our nation imploding. And though I can see God is turning our nation over, I also see God moving in many ways in people of this nation that are seeking the Truth and He is sovereignly bringing many to salvation. But the continual divisions, heralding of evil, created disasters of all sorts around us, is indeed marching America to its destruction. Is this coincidence? I think NOT! But as for me, though each of the peoples may walk in the name of his god, yet will I walk in the name of the LORD [Yahweh] our God forever and ever [Micah 4:5].
