Nick wrote a letter to me ...

NICK writes this:

Here is a part of my story...

I belong to the United Reformed denomination. Its a small group of only a couple hundred churches...but it is pretty good. The pastors teach the word in truth and they reject the false philosophies and doctrines of man that are running rampant throughout the churches of the world right now.

But...when it comes to Bible prophecy...there is almost NO preaching about it. Yes...they believe that Christ will come again...but many people don't know about the end times and the various world-shattering events that will unfold.

They say it is unhealthy to my life to be so concerned with the things that are going on in the world. They say that if I live my life thinking each day about the END...then i will not be happy...and I won't strive to get a good career or anything if I think that its all going to end anyway.

Now, I am in college....I'm not sure of what i want to do for my life...but i am NOT running away and hiding in a bomb shelter when i see these signs of Christ's coming.

I have explained to them that we are seeing so much happening in our day and age when these events are viewed with the lens of scripture. Prophesy is being fulfilled!

I tell them about Israel....then they look really uncomfortable and say that Israel's re-emergence as a nation is merely coincidence and that God has no plan for them. They say that the church is now Israel.

I try to tell them about the prophesied GOG/MAGOG war...and how a coalition of nations is going to try to wipe out the re-emerged nation of Israel, but God will stop them with supernatural measures. But since literal Israel...the country...has no significance in their can they believe this.

I tell them about the Antichrist....the one-world government, economy, religion, the mark of the beast, and world unity that is spoken about in the bible........then they say that I'm viewing it too literally.

I tell them about the increased Earthquakes, Hurricanes, and other natural disasters that are happening. and the drought and famine that are getting worse....

They just say that all these things have always been around. They say that people have been predicting Christ's return forever. They say that i should not be so worried about it. They tell me i should just live my life for God and know that it will just happen when it happens....if it happens in our lifetimes.


Secular people also say this to me....that everything that as it always has been. Nothing really has changed. But I have noticed even in my lifetime...that the events are appearing as birth pangs...growing more severe and more frequent.

Then I read this verse in the Bible, and I see another fulfillment of scripture.

II Peter 3:3-4

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."

That verse says it all...for I have met these scoffers...and some of them who deny the signs of the times....are deluded Christians in the church!


When I look at modern day is a painful sight. I see preachers standing up in mega churches....wearing luxury (Benny Hinn)....Men who preach nothing about how God wants to bestow upon us EARTHLY RICHES....they mention nothing of sins...of Christ.....of how we are to put our hope in him....

Men who water down and ultimately deny the scripture...who preach in political correctness....and in a way that offends nobody. Men like Robert Schuller, Rick Warren, Creflo Dollar, and many more...

There is the emerging church movement too...I do hope that you know enough about this growing movement. They are post-modernists...who say that nobody can understand the bible....they say that Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and everybody else....goes to heaven.
They seek old Roman Catholic mysticism practices like Contemplative prayer, labyrinths, breath prayers...THEY DENY THAT TRUTH EXISTS...

Brian Mclaren...who is a novelist, pastor, and emergent leader says the following. Please Watch this video...

It is sad to see what they believe....


Here is a link to an excellent article by missionary/ pastor Roger Oakland...a man of true faith. This article is about the emerging's the link...

When one sees the various false churches out Christians act so Christians are being deceived by seeker-sensitive messages and heresy...It is painful to know that God's word said this would happen.

II Thessalonians 2:1-3

"Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to Him, that you may not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction..."

here is another verse...

I Timothy 4: 1-2

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron...."


I find that the vast majority of Christianity has been rendered useless and blind. Many people and couples in my church are very wealthy. One old couple has millions upon millions from their business and investments.

When I fellowship after the church services on Sunday...I overhear so many people talking about money....about business....about the fancy cars and things they just bought....about that new house or renovation...

While I view such things as blessings from is sad to see Christians getting caught up in money and things that is JUST STUFF...

I have told many of them in friendly conversations about these days but they don't seem interested...or they view me as a nutter.

And i sit here typing this I am watching the stock markets is 4:19 and the markets are about to close.

The DJI is at 7553.....down 443 points from yesterdays abysmal closing number.

I look at these numbers and then I ponder the intense fear they cause to people....even Christians..

Christians need to realize....where their hope and treasure really Christ!!!!! When hard times come...and we worry about the economy...Christians often end up acting exactly like the WORLD! The lost people out there....they look at the scared Christians and they think....aren't Christians supposed to have hope in God? Yet there they are....all worried about money and the state of the economies.

I am sorrowful for the many Christians that will have the day of the Lord come upon them as a snare...

I hope God will use people...those who are not help wake up our brothers and sisters. The world is crumbling all around us...and Christians are too busy with the fleeting joys and fears of this life.

I am glad that you not blind to what is happening Trent. I rejoice that God has opened our eyes. There are amazing "side-effects" to knowing the bible's prophetic words...and watching for the signs of Christ's coming.

Since I have been awakened to the signs....I have learned to be happy for each day that i have...i have learned that i must not worry about my life...about tomorrow....about money....for all of it is perishable.

God has shown us what is going to happen....and that through Christ...we are victorious! I look forward to Christ's return.

When i see the prophecy being fulfilled...even though it looks bad...I
look beyond that darkness and see the light of life!

Truly he is coming quickly! Let us look forward to it with great joy! It will be like the springtime of life! It will be the time when our real summer will come! and the winter will be forever over.

No more of this world's trials and troubles will be ours!

"For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone!"

- Song of Solomon 2:11


And yes...I look forward to our discussions in the future too!

In Christ,

I don’t know if this will help you out. But I am too in college and awoken from my slumber. From who's doing I only credit our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It's been about a year since my new birthday but it has been a journey and an experience that I would not trade with anyone. I’m living out my own Bible story every day with God as the author and perfecter and I take great comfort in that. I have come to realize that God has made me who I am in his image and that me being clay can say nothing to the potter who formed me. The desires I have only come from him. That very desire that he has given me and many others is that of himself alone...a desire and longing for Jesus and to please God by walking in his truth until he leads us unto his dwelling place. I trust the fact that the Lord directs my path and that I have a purpose and destiny in God's will that he will fulfill for his own Glory.

Reading your phenomenal post is just one of the many instances I can say that are so special for me during this brief and but a vapor life of mine. I don’t go to a church of men; I haven’t been for months now because I do not know who to trust and I don’t want to be guilty by “association,” it seems you are going through the same situation...

Jeremiah 9:4-6
"Beware of your friends; do not trust your brothers. For every brother is a deceiver, and every friend a slanderer. Friend deceives friend, and no one speaks the truth. They have taught their tongues to lie; they weary themselves with sinning. You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me," declares the Lord.

You have spoken truth, and that very truth has set you free. You wrote….”I hope God will use people...those who are not help wake up our brothers and sisters.” Well in fact, God is raising you up to be a part of those very PEOPLE, and many other diverse people to proclaim truth and stand firm as a Mighty Warrior for him. I have found that the foolish things of this world (People) are actually the most humble and beautiful people in the whole world, and their heart is that after God’s who only want people to know and experience the same love that they have and experience every day.

Isaiah 43:10
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.

The Lord has his hand on you, and many others and God has been so faithful to lead us to this site to meet others who are going through the same exact thing. We are a family, with love abounding and I cannot wait to be with all of you to praise and worship our Lord and Savior for all of Eternity. Oh how I wish I could write the tears and love I have flowing through me for our awesome God and his body.

*Full of joy through the Holy Spirit*---I praise you Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to your little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. Most High God you are gracious towards those who seek you diligently. You who was, and is, and is to come, we welcome you as are King and Savior. We wait for you and hope for you…For you Mighty God are strong and loving. You fill our hearts with a desire and love to share with you and with others. May we love one another as you have first loved us. We thank you for your precious gift in that of your son Jesus who has rescued us and set our feet on the solid Rock. Precious Jesus, you are the carpenter of our lives, may you continue to carry us on your back as you did your cross that you scorned and shamed. We face much opposition from sinful men and those who deny your coming…as we wait patiently, continue to mold us into the image of your perfect son Jesus. We pray and ask for the forgiveness of not just our own but the sins of those around us and also our wicked land sins…we have denied you Lord, we have turned our backs to you and not our faces. ARISE Lord, cleanse us and make us clean…you have reconciled everything back unto yourself by the shedding of your son’s atoning blood. Lord I pray and ask that you watch over all your precious sheep all across the world that are dying and being persecuted for your Great name, the name above all names. Forgive wicked and sinful men who know not what they do. Please Lord we beg of you…thank you for sending forth your truth and light so that we may walk in perfect fellowship with you. Almighty Good God…thank you in advance…I am your servant and your son, along with many other brothers and sisters who ask in Your Son's name,Thank you Jesus...Amen, from everlasting to everlasting, Amen…

Isaiah 26:7-12
The path of the righteous is level;
O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth.
Yes, Lord walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Our souls yearn for you in the night; in the morning our spirit longs for you.
When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.
Though grace is shown to the wicked they do not learn righteousness;
Even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the Lord.
O Lord, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.
Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

Nick, hang in there. You, along with many others on this website and around the world are an inspiration. The Lord will continue to guide us and lead us through these terrible times…thanks for the post, conformation and very much needed!!!

Matthew 20:27-30
Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”

Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or fathers or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

Broken and contrite,
