Not for myself
I’m afraid! even worried
Mark 4:40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
Faith and fear can’t be in the same vessel. Fear always takes over. Like just a drop of salt water mixed in a vase of sweet water makes the whole vase full of salt water. Leaven (just a speck) spreads through all the dough. A tiny spark destroys an entire forest. A little piece of rat poisoning kills a healthy fat baby. The list goes on.
A little bit of fear is distructive. If we are Christians, we have the mind of Christ. We can control our thoughts. Do you think Jesus fears the boogy man or darkness? He made everything, including them. Jesus remade our minds when we are Born again as well.
1 Cor 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Whenever you are afraid, you have a decision to make. Keep fear going and feeding on fear by listening to the news and googling it or you can ignore it and focus on Jesus and faith. It can soon turn into a spiritual war. I bury enough little coffins and deal with horror On a daily basis here. I can’t worry and pray about everything, every where. it’s impossible. I put in 15 hour days here praying, studying, nursing, teaching, ministering and helping. Then, at Night, I don’t fall to sleep, I faint with exhaustion. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to terrify myself with the news.
My brother had a ‘thing’ once, and googled it. It panicked him and went to a doctor. It was nothing, and the Dr. said, stop googling every symptom, it’ll terrify you! Haha
I was just talking to a dear friend (who thinks completely differently than me). He said in a very nice way, ‘why are you so ignorant of current events? For as much time you spend on fb, why don’t you spend more time on current events?’ (Note, it’s ok to disagree with friends. You don’t have to get angry). Bottom line, what you read about current events on the Internet, it is not true, I don’t believe any of it.
IRT fb, it’s my preferred platform, and I use it for ministry and keeping up with friends. Some of whom I have only met virtually. Many people that read my newsletter are from FB only and are not even Christians. I am on FB many hours a day because I spend a lot of time walking from house to house in the woods (4-5 miles a day). so I do fb and listen to sermons while I’m walking. We also spend a ridiculous amount of time in lines here and in office waiting rooms (governmental red tape torture), lots of meetings, puppy dog ministry (sitting at bedsides), ERs and just waiting (Nicas are ALWAYS late, sorry Nicas haha).
I am a Christian. I reach out to the Lost. I am on the mission field to reach the Lost. I use FB To reach the Lost. People are in need all over the world and this is the easiest way to keep up with them and to share the good news of Jesus. In return, My friends on FB give me all the news I need to know. I just don’t trust the news or any reports or statistics enough to spend anytime listening to them. They’ve lied to me before, now they’re dead to me. news is valueless.
I was in the army when CNN started getting popular. Those guys exaggerated, staged and lied about virtually everything we were involved in back then. They manipulated the statistics. They counted dead pigs and dogs as deaths. If they didn’t like a side, they called innocent dead children soldiers. If they liked a side, they called dead soldiers innocents. News and statistics are worse now than ever. Everyone can get saved by Jesus and repent of those sins (meaning to stop doing them) and trusting Only on the finished work of Jesus to Keep them out of hell and to Get them into heaven. But these guys haven’t truly repented. How do I know? Because they continue to lie. I cannot believe a non-repentant compulsive liar.
I do believe my friends are sincere and don’t have an agenda. Like I said, I have great friends on both sides In my beautiful but dangerously torn country. I learned over the years from the civil wars that I’ve lived through, to just share the Gospel nothing else. I have friends that I love and trust on both sides. Hope it’s mutual . I hear what both sides say and the truth is always somewhere in the middle. A lot of them have the time and interest to shovel through the mountains drivel spewed out on radio, tV, books, Magazines, newspapers and social media. I don’t. Both sides are getting agendasized. I love all of my friends, no importa their political views.
I am afraid though not for myself. I am afraid of only one thing. I am not only afraid, but terrified for people who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. It’s not that hard to get saved. First you have to recognize that you are a sinner in need of salvation. We all are. Then, If you aren’t sure that you’re saved, ask Jesus into your heart right now, and believe ON Him, count on Him only to save you, to rescue you from sin and from hell. If you are reading this and feel the urge to change your life, the Holy Spirit will help you. it is the Holy Spirit Himself working on your heart…John 1:12,13 and John 16:7-11. message me if you want yo talk more about this.
If people reject the Holy Spirit’s calling, Thats scary. Hell is for a very long time. I love my friends, and because of that, I fear for them, and they should be afraid too. The Bible is being played out right before our eyes. Time is running out! Automatic check-out was only possible for the past ten years, yet it was prophesied 2000 years ago. The whole world seeing a singular event at the same time was only possible 30 years ago (cable tV , internet and live streaming.). That was prophesied 2000 years ago as well. long before sheet metal, screens, wires and fiber optics.
Here’s my opinion based on what I read in the Bible of what is going to happen probably in MY lifetime, and I am already 65! I just want everyone to be ready.
First will be the rapture. many of my readers are not believers, as of yet, but they tolerate me because I LOVE THEM and visa versa! If they’re not Christians now, and continue to reject Jesus until the rapture, they’ll be thrilled about not getting pestered by my weekly newsletters anymore . This will happen any second now. Every day I am looking up expecting my ‘Great Mysterious Hope’ to snatch me up into the sky And to fly away. He will take every Christian to heaven in one nano-second. That includes me, everyone else that Winnie and I have led to the Lord Or work with. We all will be out of here, and all our brothers and sisters in Christ. That will all happen in the twinkling of the eye. Maranatha! Meanwhile, Winnie and I will continue to love and serve these little ones in managua as if we had another 100 years.
1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
After the initial shock and terror, The rapture will be celebrated world wide because every annoying born again believer will be gone. Churches will be filled to the brim of those who had rejected Christ and are now terrified, but It will be too late for The most part. There won’t be anyone saved there. It will be the blind leading the blind without the Holy Spirit to lead them. Btw, I got lots of stuff here in my house, come and get it after the rapture. Winnie won’t be here either. Help yourselves!
There will be a one world government and there will be peace and prosperity for 3 1/2 years. Muslims and Jews, communists and nazis, gays and straights, all the various shades of skin (I have never seen someone pure black or pure white, we all have a little of someone else’s race in us haha, sorry Aryians and racists!). Young and old, everyone will get along….. for 3 1/2 years.
But the catch is there will be no more money. All will be Bitcoin or some other cryptocurrency. My guess is Bitcoin but who knows. (Buy stock in Cryptocurrency if you plan on sticking around after the rapture.) No one will have cash. No more farmers markets, kids doing yardwork, cheerleaders washibg cars, beggars, tips, or even 10 dollars stuck in a Christmas card or under the pillow for the tooth fairy. It will be an accountant’s dream one true! All will be crypto. No Pan handlers, street vendors, No thieves, No drug dealers. No problems, unless you don’t want to obey and submit to the new world ORDER to receive the mandatory chip. (We are already being conditioned to receive it by all that’s going on now). The chip will be like a credit card. (They came out with the chip to locate troops when I was in the army.). The technology for the chip and cashless society and computers have only been around for 40 years…. Again it was prophesied 2000 years ago. There are many stores and restaurants now that only accept credit cards. El Salvador now has Bitcoin only (crypto currency) instead of paper money. This was Prophesied long before electronics, plastics, nano-technology and vaccines were even thought of.
Revelations 13:17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
The first 3 1/2 years things will go along smoothly, (If you are obedient and don’t resist the new world/one world oRDERS, oRDER IS THE KEU WORD. AS IN BOSSING AROUND). People will get saved during that time, but it will be much harder without the Holy Spirit. some SAINTS will resist to the end, facing starvation, humiliation and eventually execution. they will get a crown in heaven for that, so it’s all good!
Then, after 3 1/2 years, people will be people as they always do, and start fighting again (propelled by the god of this world, still, Satan.) Satan has been in charge of this world ever since Adam and Eve. There’ll be great battles. Russia will attack Israel from the north and will have a huge world war 3 battle in the valley of Amageden. All the armies of the world will be there. This was prophesied 3000 years ago In the Bible, way before nuclear warfare was known about.
Isaiah 34:4 All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
But simultaneously, as everyone is watching The Battle Of Armageddon Live,on the internet or CNN cable tV, (as they are watching the Ukraine invasion) Jesus will come back to rule, With Us! (And they will see Him coming back in Clouds Of glory on their mobile phones and tV screens, talk about good ratings!! Ukraine is north of Israel btw. This was prophesied 2000 years ago, before electricity.
Revelation 1:7 “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
God does something world changing every 2000 years. Our time is up, He’s overdue to do something right now. 2000 years after Adam and Eve, (and the creation) was Abraham. 2000 years since Abraham (and his covenant), was Jesus (with His New Pact). Now it’s our turn. Even so Lord, come quickly! Maranatha!
1 Corinthian 16:22 Come Lord!

I Stand Firm According To Promises God Has Shown Me In Prayer And In The Bible.
1. the Nica Government Is really Tough, And Getting Tougher. It Has Been Strangling Out A Lot Of The Weaker Foreign Organizations, Or Organizations Getting Involved In Things That Aren´T any of Their Business. They Are Now Calling Us Foreign Agents, Which Isn’t Good. 133 American NGO’s have left. We Are Fine, we know how to embrace the suck. It Just Takes Patience, Calm, Money, Certainty Of Our Calling, And GOD. Expenses Are Huge Though. We Are Up To Date, And Legal Again, After A Bunch Of Redo´s orderred again on paperwork And there’s Tons Of Fines.
2. We Are Waiting For The Next Step Towards LEGALLY Opening An Orphanage and old folks home on the same property. They Keep Changing The Rules Though. We need the property and the proper financial backing for this, so God’s things happen in God’s timing. IT WOULD BE SUCH A BLESSING TO THE OLD FOLKS TO HEAR KIDS PLAYING, AND IT WOULD BE A BLESSING FOR THE KIDS TO HAVE ABUELAS AND ABUELOS.
4. WINNIE`S HEALTH
5. Wisdom, Energy, Patience And Discernment.
6. Saturday Matinée AWANA club, which has replaced the Winner club. It’s More Bible based. We purposely have less kids, but we want kids who are hungry for the Word Of God. We have about 35 adolescents and a staff of ten. It’s a blast.
7. For the approximate 6,000 people we help, either directly or undirectly.
8. for our own 2 kids studying in the states. That they have Godly Workers as friends.
9. for the children we are feeding in our two feeding centers in Managua and the one we help in Rivas and Islambad Pakistan and an orphanage in the Ukraine.
