Just a quick note:
I'm having to screen "comments" now, as some folks have felt the need to come here and post obscene comments, links to pornography, and some more benign comments still inappropriate for this forum.
I'll try to check frequently and get the comments posted. The comments have been very interesting and thought-provoking, and I enjoy reading them. Keep them coming. I am hoping after a period of time, the inappropriate comments, from inappropriate people will stop and we can go back to "unscreened" comments.
I was having some trouble with this option and a couple of comments were somehow deleted, so I apologize to any comments which haven't appeared. There was one, in particular, that asked about the Holy Spirit and its collective removal at the time of the rapture, and I would have loved to have seen what others had to say about that. I'll come back to that as soon as possible. I have no idea why that comment didn't show up after clearing it (?). My apologies to that poster.
One more word while I am at it.
I want to thank many of you, from the bottom of my heart - those who have offered words of encouragement - prayers - and thoughtful, helpful comments - not only via the forum, but privately via emails and telephone. It means the world to me, and it shows the Christian brotherly/sisterly love that I have come to greatly appreciate in this community of prophecy watchers.
So again, thank you so very much for these kind and encouraging words. It means so much.
This blog started as something just intended for a small group. Several of the bible study groups that I had presented biblical prophecy to - had requested that I have a forum for them to keep up with world events etc. My feeling was that the internet didn't need another prophecy blog, as there are so many out there. But after several years, I felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to go ahead and put together a blog just to speak to these small bible-study groups and stay in touch with them that way.
Somehow (and I have no idea how this happened.......well, maybe thats not entirely true:) - we now have several thousand hits per week from all over the world. I had absolutely no vision of that happening. I suppose its a "God thing".
We'll all be together soon - at the most epic celebration and reunion ever imagined. I can thank you then, in person. All of the pain and frustrations of this world - the nonsense that we endure every day on this planet will be over and done with soon. We will be in Christ's perfect world, and we will be together. I believe we are very very close to the "gathering up" of the Church.
I can't wait. God bless all of you. And thanks again for the support and the encouragement :)
Oh - one more thing while I'm at it. Week 1 of the ongoing 8 part series on "Signs of the Coming Christ" should be posted soon. The audio link will hopefully be posted by the end of the week. Also anticipating that each week during this series, we will be able to get the audio links up, from the previous Sunday by the end of the week, so keep looking out for those to appear.
