“,,,while It is Called Today…”

“But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day…” (Hebrews 3:13, KJV)

I was noticing how, in this verse, there is a space between the words ‘To’ & ‘day’, which intrigued me. Looking up this instance of ‘day’ in Strong’s Concordance (#4594 Greek), I found that it generally means ‘now’. In my own life, I have often intentionally placed myself in the ‘now’ to cope. Focus sharpens, anxieties melt. ‘Now’, for me, translates to operating in the mind of Christ, in His presence.

At least, this is how I perceive it.

This Scripture suggests to me that it will not always be ‘now’. I don’t know what that means exactly. but the thought is sobering. And so while it IS still ‘now’, it is time for me to lay down parts of my life, in order to more deeply know and serve Jesus. While it is still ‘now’, work needs to be done.

It cannot be emphasized enough how important Jesus is.

The mysteries of life are by God’s design. (Ephesians 3:5, 9) To operate within them, to navigate through them, a person NEEDS Jesus. You need to know what He teaches, and what He has done to make this possible, to come out safely on the other side. You need to know – if only in moderate amount – about powers & principalities that do exist, and to whom the workings & wisdom of God are ‘now’ being made known (Ephesians 3:10). (To be clear, ‘now’ as used in this verse is translated from a different Greek word (#3568), but means ‘now’ or ‘present’.)

This thrills me.

‘Now’ is a powerful & exciting time. We see so much chaos & evil in this world – we are seeing, I believe, the increasingly frantic, diabolical maneuvers of Lucifer to prove to God that he & his cohorts can restore & govern this world system (Sidebar: Yes, We Can! Sound familiar, anyone?). His efforts travel the world…indeed, the universe. Instead, the outcome will be that God will prevail. He is showing “by the church” His eternal purposes. It is an outworking that is happening NOW.

What Went Down in Eden…?

There have been certain Scriptures, throughout my years of Bible reading, that have troubled me. Often, I had to – and sometimes still do – shy away from them. There is enough uncertainty & inherent threat in life, without that which is supposed to comfort & illuminate me, adding to it! Until I can get a better understanding of these Words, I have to ‘walk away’. I do not disbelieve them. I just can’t handle them. In fact, in Peter’s 2nd. epistle we are specifically warned about those Scriptures ‘hard to be understood’. If you have yet to become ‘learned’ in these things, they can destroy you.

There were other Scriptures that did not trouble me, but yet…I sensed truth not revealed. I couldn’t put my finger on it. And most of the time, I don’t think I was even cognizant of the fact that I even perceived this. I just kept on reading…


I think the reason for these ‘gaps’ might be found in Jesus’ statement to his disciples, that there was much more He had to tell them, but they could not bear it yet. There is a place in our spiritual awareness & growth where we, too, cannot bear knowing certain things. Just as you would refrain from exposing your children to certain kinds of topics, so God does with us.

Until we are ready.

When that time comes, the Lord will bring that information to you, and lead you by His Spirit down paths of increase in learning. In some cases, the information might not ‘go down easy’, even then. You may need to use wisdom in managing your intake. But as you become acclimated to a greater fullness of truth, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. It is at once awful & glorious. It occurs to me that such instruction could be compared to Peter’s counsel concerning discipline, that in the moment it takes place, it is ‘not pleasant but grievous’ – yet afterwards it yields the ‘peaceable fruit of righteousness.’

And I must say here, that I am truly enjoying these times of ‘peaceable righteousness’!


A riveting Scripture which has always caught my attention is the beginning of John 8:44. Speaking to certain Jews (who sought to kill Him, v.40), Jesus said point-blank, “Ye are of your father the devil…”, adding, “…and the lusts of your father ye will do.” Jesus was speaking to physical beings, as far as we can tell – sooooo….how could Jesus say their ‘father’ was a fallen angel/devil? The Hebrew word used here is a primary noun meaning ‘father’, and can include ‘parent’. Now, it would be one thing if at some point a physical, human being became influenced or possessed by another entity or spirit, but I don’t think that would qualify such entity/spirit as a ‘father’.

Hmmm…what are we talking about here?

On sJesus & Phariseesome level, I always felt that Jesus’ words were literal. These persons were of the bloodline, or lineage of Satan. I didn’t understand that, but in my gut…it resonated.

How did such a condition come into being, though? I didn’t know. The obvious answer seemed preposterous, so I left it alone.


Today, the obvious answer no longer seems so preposterous to me.


These same Jews protested, We be Abraham’s seed! Abraham is our father! (v.33, 39) We have one Father, even God! (v.41)

Jesus saw it differently.

“…ye seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth…this did not Abraham.” (v.40) (Meaning, you are NOT of Abraham…)

“If God were your Father, ye would love Me.” (v.42)

…let me clarify here, with more of our opening verse (John 8:44): “…and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning…”

So we have these certain Jews, who sought to kill & did not love, claiming faith-filled, Godly lineage, a bloodline descending from Adam, a “son of God” (Luke 3:38) In fact, they are not who they claim to be. Or appear to be. They are rather, according to Jesus, descended from Satan. I submit that it is possible they, or some of them, did not realize that. But they somehow entered the timeline of human history through a procreation process that hearkens back to Satan, and includes flesh & blood.


…at this point, one’s thoughts might turn to the Garden of Eden, where we know the Scriptures tell us about an interaction between a serpent and a woman named Eve. The conditions of a satanic being and flesh & blood are met here in this environment. It may never have occurred to you before, that perhaps what actually transpired in this Garden was an illicit sexual act; if so, you may be revolted by the thought. It is awful. It is sickening. When this concept was first presented to me, decades ago, I was probably being guarded in heart & mind by God, because I was able to stomach it. But I wasn’t sure if I believed it.

Over the ensuing years, the idea faded into the background. But recently, it has re-surfaced. Seen in light of the globalist world that has been developing, and its accompanying movements & entities now pushing to a culmination point, I now find this explanation of the Fall palatable & clarifying. The pieces fall into place. For me, they SO fall into place!


Here I want to construct a chronological sequence of events, that hopefully will illustrate the basic process of corruption that has transpired since ancient times –

  • In the glorious & hallowed Halls of Heaven, Lucifer, God’s most beautiful creation, rebelled against Him.

a. Satan (Lucifer?), and those who followed him, were cast out of heaven.

b. It is considered that this catastrophic event occurred in the space of time    between Genesis chapter 1, verse 1 & verse 2. The violent power released here might explain v.2: “…the earth was void, and without form.”

c. At this point, it might safely be conjectured that Satan begins to plot his comeback.

  • God brings the garden of Eden into being. He creates man & woman within it.

a. Enter the serpent. (Here comes the ‘comeback’!)

b. This serpent beguiles & seduces Eve. (Note: Assuming this was an actual physical sexual seduction, the DNA was here corrupted. The intended embryons27-th (2)ic process that would have transpired between Eve, the *virgin & Adam, a son of God, was usurped. Eve’s firstborn, Cain, carried ‘bad blood’.)

c.  *I say ‘virgin’ because sexual activity between Eve & Adam is not mentioned in Genesis until after the Fall.

Question: Did the serpent/aka Satan/Lucifer somehow know about a future plan of God to bring HIS firstborn into the world through the human procreative process? Was this a pre-emptive attack, hopefully thwarting His purposes by tainting & transforming the bloodline?

(Even though God’s plan of redemption through our Savior was a direct response TO Satan’s seduction – perhaps Satan did not have full foreknowledge.)

  • Now a bloodline is tainted.
  • Eve bears another son, with Adam: Abel. That bloodline is not tainted with the serpent seed.
  • Time passes. Men multiply upon the earth. Two blood lines exist & compete

Question: Did Satan think, Hmmm…my chances of domination will increase if more ‘people’ on the earth have MY tainted blood..what can be done about that?

  • So  “…the sons of God {angels who left their first estate as did Lucifer, in a sense} came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them…” (Genesis 6:4)


Immediately following this verse in Scripture, we are told that God “…saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth…”  It was so bad, in fact, that “every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”.  Every imagination…only evil…continually. “…the earth was filled with violence.” (Genesis 6:11) I have to consider the appearance of such pervasive, consuming iniquity on the earth to be related to a possible serpent seed bloodline, and its reaching of critical mass proportions finally accomplished by the couplings revealed above, in verse 4.


(At this point in time, God brings the Flood, wiping out all mankind except Noah, his three sons, and their wives. The slate was wiped clean. 

But it did not stay that way.

Next post, some thoughts on that…)

Things God says….vs. the Shadowy Powers-that-Be behind the Scenes

“…be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”

(Romans 12:2)


The depth & scope of this kind of renewal should rock your world, if you understand the absolute need for it.

On its surface, this exhortation seems to be saying that we need to learn to think differently, in order to escape becoming a ‘bad person’. But the impact of one’s mind eventually NOT being renewed, can be fuel for so much worse than that.


According to this Scripture, people are either ‘conformed’ or ‘transformed’. I would suggest that either one or the other is eventually going to tip the scales. I would also suggest that we are probably constantly being conformed, without even realizing it. So that just as LifeLock@ safeguards a person’s data identity in cyberspace, we need Someone to constantly safeguard our true life & identity in spiritual space – in Christ.

That which is formed in the spirit will often manifest in the temporal, visible real – either as something good, something apparently good, or something evil. So that to which we are conformed is critical, at the deepest & most minute level, because it may reproduce in various ways & forms, and in same cases exponentially. (I am talking globally here.)


…so the world/earth is inhabited by people, the same people who are being conformed or transformed as we speak. It stands to reason, then, that our environments will be influenced accordingly.



“If a ruler hearkens to lies, all his servants are wicked.” (Proverbs 29:12)


…so suppose that there is in place a president or a prime minister who ‘hearkens to lies’ – because throughout their life, they were ‘conformed’. This does not bode well for the climate thus created by his staff & subordinates, according to the above Scripture. Unless there is present within that group some who were ‘transformed by the renewing of {their} mind’, who will question & challenge narratives & agendas…the rest of us are going to be fed false, unhealthy information and subjected to detrimental (possibly in the extreme) laws & those things which result from these laws.

At least some of the time.

A way of fighting back against this system of manipulation is the renewing of your mind. Learning a different way of evaluating events, and overhauling one’s priorities & values, is a crucial weapon in this battle. Maybe THE only weapon that will yield the kind of lasting change needed in our world today.

…and make no mistake, this starts with you.


I want to relate these ideas to globalisation.

According to David Icke, author of ‘Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center Disaster’, the powers behind the scenes find it relatively easy to essentially control what happens in our world. They only need to implement a few ‘key structures’. The first, says Icke, is to ‘impose the ‘norms’, what is considered right and wrong, possible or impossible, sane or insane, good or bad. Most of the people will follow those ‘norms’ without question…” (Enter: the media, advertising, ‘education’, certain religious practices…you get the picture…) Once a conditioning of the masses has taken place, peer pressure does the rest “…Facebook and almost every other major social media platform are turning hundreds of millions of people into a literal “herd” or “hive” mentality, otherwise known as “Groupthink”…” explains Michael DePinto, attorney & contributing writer on The Last Great Stand.

The imposition of the norm is then followed up by making it ‘very unpleasant’ for those who dare to buck the system. This unpleasantness can run the gamut from ridicule to ostracization and beyond.

“The most effective way to do this is to ensure that it is…a crime to be different.”


In addition to the ‘Groupthink’ agenda working to establish behavior-controlling norms, there also exists an agenda working to control our emotions. It is reported that Facebook “can basically make you feel whatever it wants you to” and   “Facebook wanted to see if it could spread feelings (“e.g., depression, happiness”) like the NIH spreads pathogens among monkeys.”

(…now that’s not a recipe for mental health distress, is it?)


…so we can get an idea of how devious conditioning could take root & spread, even worldwide. Elements that may not have our best interests as their goal could certainly be behind such actions, seeking to more easily shape and thus control populations & world agendas. Agendas that result in our detriment to their ‘increase’, i.e., power & money.

To some this logic may seem outlandish. Not to me.

…and so it seems imperative that we be at least aware of this possibility, and safeguard against it. Safeguard against being unwittingly sucked into the maelstrom of manipulations & opinions, and become shaped accordingly, to our loss. There are many paths and many ways that can be taken in this life, but you want to find & take the right One.

“…for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there which go in thereat…” (Matthew 7:13)  (Groupthink? Globalism? World system? New World Order? )



Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”. Not a way. THE Way. That way is narrow, but it leads to life (Matthew 7:14).  I have read that there is, in fact, only room for Jesus and you in that narrow Way. This does not mean that a person has to become a monk!  Jesus Himself did pray to the Father, that He did not ask for His people to be taken out of the world (but rather to be protected from the evil one {Groupthink? Globalism? World system? New World Order?} )…so don’t misunderstand the concept of being tight with Jesus Christ! But it behooves any one of us to turn to Him to find and enter the narrow Way that leads to Life, and to the “so great salvation” that is our escape (Hebrews 2:3).


Jesus, the Way

Where is Your Focus?

For now, it seems like the gay marriage issue has settled down & taken a back seat. Gay marriage laws have been passed. Our for-or-against positions aren’t a central topic of attention or conversation, at this point.

I still remain not completely convinced. And I am not even sure exactly what I mean by that…

For me, it is not quite so black & white…


Because God looks on the heart…because mortality is swallowed up of life…because Jesus abolished in his flesh the enmity, the law of commandments… because there exists a place where, once purged by His blood, there should be no perception of sin…because the just shall live by faith…

…because of these spiritual realities & conditions, among others, I do not find it so easy to scream “Sin!” in judgment against homosexual persons. I don’t know that I could attend a gay wedding, if ever invited. I can’t actually support militant gay activists, either…yet…if there be knowledge, it shall eventually ‘vanish away’ (1 Corinthians 13:8). Knowledge that divides – because it is only partial knowledge – will one day be ‘done away’, and a Greater will have arrived. All our rules, agendas, & laws will cease to be. Charity alone will never fail.

Because, ultimately, all things will be summed up in Christ, I question that our focus should be on a specific earth-bound ‘issue’ all that much. There is a broader picture…and yet, conversely, that broader picture leads to a whole Other specific focus, which must needs eliminate the rest. Strait is the gate, and narrow is the Way that need to be entered, to avoid destruction. And by this I do not mean walking the straight & narrow, in the conventional sense.  I am not talking about works or behavior, about ‘repenting’ or whatever else enters the mind upon hearing such a term.

I am talking about keeping your focus reined in, narrowing it down to see Jesus. I guarantee you, He will take it from there.


“There has been a lot going on right now to ‘steal the attention and focus’ of God’s people and to attempt to bring us into a place of aligning ourselves, our declarations and our confessions with things opposite, things from the soul realm, things the enemy is saying, that is all completely opposite to what HE Is saying.”  (Prophetic word)

It Started Way before 9/11…

…a post from December, 2010…

Jesus, the Revolution & You

In the days following September 11, 2001, I heard something like this from the Lord : that He took no pleasure in that horrendous, vicious wounding of our nation. While many who stood behind pulpits, or listened from pews in front of them, preached judgment on America for her sins, I heard something else. I heard that a silent poison had been spreading, and was far more advanced than we knew. Stopping its spread required perseverance and a ’never forget’ mentality, and these in turn required such a wounding as the catastrophic tragedy that took place in New York city that morning. A lesser event could fade from memory, and not elicit the sustained vigilance necessary to combat terrorism and preserve our land.

This was how I understood what I believed was shared with me that day.

Today, I understand more. I understand the poison that had been spreading was…

Before Returning to my First Love…a few thoughts on ‘Weird Stuff’


For probably about a year now, I have been drawn more & more into exploring what I call ‘weird’ topics. Another term for these topics might be ‘conspiracy theories’, or something similar to that. I have wondered, along the way, if I was wandering too far off course. At times I have actually felt in danger – of what, it is hard to say – and have had to back off for awhile. Recently, the Lord reminded me that the Scriptures tell me to be rooted & grounded in Christ, not the increasingly gripping lure of ancient ‘myths’, civilizations, and personages both physical & otherwise. There was never a moment when He told me to give up my research on & writing about, such subject matter, though. And so for this reason – and the fact that I was able to withstand & process it – I believe I was being led into truth that He had prepared me to be able to receive.

And so I am now a believer in things ‘weird’.


I write this post because I want to try & summarize what I have come to see as reality. Though unnerving, even nightmarish in its substance, Scripture appears to back it up. So I want to present a simple overview.


…but afterwards, I think I will be focusing much more on my first love, and returning to things Revolutionary, Founders & God-related. I believe some of our greatest answers lie in our history & Constitution, and some (many?) of our leaders need to submit to that premise – so that also will be included in my subject matter here, going forward. To everything there is a season, and I think this particular season of ‘dark matter delving’ has just about ended, for me. It is time to look to the light in the land of the living. It is time to turn back to hope, and it is time to be refreshed & instructed in God-given solutions that can restore & sustain America, yet beautiful but gravely wounded.



“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (William Shakespeare / Hamlet Act 1. Scene V)


While I strongly believe that EVERYTHING is under God’s control and direction, I also now believe that within His control is allowed the ‘control’ of others. These ‘others’ manipulate. It is God’s choice to allow this. There is a Divine & perfect reason for this, which one day all creation will see & know. At that time, the rejoicing of the righteous will be off the charts! but at this time, we who are in His name need to practice remembering this, and remembering to rejoice now as well, in His promises to us, and in His faithfulness to keep them. We need to actively employ these promises in the Word, and the knowledge of Him, because in the end, this is our only escape from the other realities that exist in this world. These realities are gaining momentum, it seems, and are working towards an age-old agenda. The King of Kings will crush them, once & for all, in a day yet to come. But until then, I think is is good to at least be aware of the existence & intent of these ungodly powers. They are God-wannabe’s, and will stop at nothing to convince themselves & everyone else that that they are God – when, of course, they are not.



Some years ago, I came to the conclusion that essentially, just about everything boils down to the conflict between Christ and anti-Christ. That may seem over-simplified…and if you don’t believe in Christ or His Word, then this may be where I lose your interest. Hope not.

I can see no other possible explanation for EVERYTHING ‘wrong’ in/with this world, than that the age-old tale of Lucifer rebelling against the Most High is still playing out. Like leaven, it has spread slowly, invisibly & inexorably throughout time & history, moving towards a final culmination. As we get closer to it, we notice more & more ‘change’, or perhaps we don’t notice it…or we do, but don’t see it for what it possibly is.

I’ve written a few articles detailing my thoughts on this matter. Rather than recounting them all, here are links to them, if you are interested:

 Lucifer Keeps Busy

Once, “the Anointed Cherub”…but Now?

Frustration: Eternally Old


There are those who have been following certain happenings worldwide, and who see patterns & real possibilities that I had not – until this past year or so. Specifically, there seems to be a global & celestial plan underway to usher in the return of Lucifer, in the guise of the anti-Christ. Many are involved in this.  Much of it is probably not apparent. It is happening behind the scenes, worldwide – yet perhaps hidden in plain sight.  What is apparent probably confounds & frustrates those who see it. Or they see it as entertainment, fantasy – but it may not be so innocent.

Other evidence that is presented either doesn’t interest the average person, or it is dismissed as myth or some such fabrication. Increasingly, I am not so sure that it should be.

I doubt that any theater of life- government & politics, education, science, economics & business, religion, the media – is exempt from its invasion.



I don’t see how the appearance of certain themes, in certain television shows, springing up in a cluster all at the same time can be ‘coincidence.’ Perhaps people are being conditioned to view malevolence in a MUCH less threatening way. Suddenly ‘Lucifer’ & ‘Angel from Hell’ present the viewer with a quirky, cutesy overlay to beings from a realm where nothing is quirky or cutesy. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ (my favorite show, actually) is devolving more deeply into that being-from-another-realm-returning theme. Suddenly I’m noticing that. The X-Files suddenly returns. In ‘Super Girl’, ‘Flash’ and other television series,  inter-galactic/hybrid/alien beings either become part of Earth’s forces, or attack it. Our screens are deluged with plots & images that get us thinking about situations & conditions that do not, or we think do not currently exist – and get us more accustomed to them. More accepting. Less resistant should these situations develop, or to allowing their development.

…so, if you are considering the implications or validity of my suspicions, it needs to be pointed out that such events would all be part of God’s Plan for the ages. Though unnerving, such happenings are not outside of His Hand or knowledge or purposes. Having briefly laid out my general worldview & suspicions, I want to emphasize that we not be consumed by them. Be aware. But seek instead He who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

He alone is the Way out of this.
