    "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony." Luke 21:11-13 Persecution followed by ever increasing signs in the earth and sky! Sounds similar to today. It can ONLY get worse! Something has to shake those to wrapped up in the accumulation of "blessings". This kind of worldly teaching is what has led to us become neither a force for heaven nor a fear for hell. "But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core." Jude 1:10-11 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:17-18

    Sadly some who know the truth in their hearts choose to sin anyway, or accept it as norm. They are too lazy to deal with the reality> Too lazy to do what will be expected of them as true followers, and they take advantage of God's graces feeling that in their last hour they will have time to repent.
    Now Things are being stirred up…these same people do not really know if death will now take them by surprise..many are panicking questioning if they should get back to God. This is the reason God's creating hardships and disasters. He's shaking the minds of those on the edge, and trying to get them to come down to solid ground. BEFORE ITS TOO LATE…
    Lord Bless!!!

    This has to be one of the weakest postings on this blog in a while, first because the author failed to proofread before posting his comments. Thus, we get dandy sentences like this one: "This there a chance that what the army just did with Franklin Graham will open the eyes of Christian leadership how dangerous it is now getting in America?"

    Aside from the nonsense beginning, the author failed to explain the context of why Graham was not invited to speak to the prayer gathering, so I will. Graham had recently made public comments that were derogatory toward the Islamic faith – comments by the way, with which I agree. However, the military brass were concerned that inviting Graham to speak would sour strategic relations we have with predominantly Muslim countries we rely upon to conduct the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The author also fails to respect the first rule of interpreting the Bible: Let the Bible speak clearly for itself. So, we get nonsense references to the book of Amos that do not apply to the church or to the citizens of the U.S.: "If Obama and the Hard Left Fascists can get the army on their side, the Church in America will no longer be 'At ease in Zion'." Somehow I don't think the Church in America is at ease in Jerusalem, nor was the quoted passage (Amos 6:1-7) a reference to the church at all.

    If the goal of the ministry is to be a watchman on the wall, fine. But please don't stretch the Bible to make a point it doesn't clearly already make.

    Bob, Thanks for taking the time to post a comment and pointing out the sentence that needed revision.

    It is really difficult to respond to your comment because you totally missed what I wrote.

    It was OK for a major to give Jihad powerpoint presentations until he shot up an army base. The army can't use the words jihad or Muslim Terrorists, but a major can write pre-Millennial believers in the Lord Jesus are dangerous in America. The same major makes treasonous statements about his president, but that is free speech.
    A professor at the war college promotes treason and anti-christian lies but that is OK;
    yet, Franklin Graham is too controversial because he spoke the truth about Islam.
    The army has little concern for what its own citizens think but is tender toward Islam. This fits a pattern in the military that has been going on for many years.

    My use of "At ease in Zion" is perfect as it represents a principal. In the New Testament I could have used the church at Laodicea. If you still don't like Amos 6, just plug in Revelation 3:15-19. Make sure you carefully read verse 19 which states if a person is not zealous for the Lord Jesus he should repent.

    Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
    Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
    Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
    Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
    Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    Where was the church while 55 million babies were killed? A tiny fraction of churches stood in California against sodomite marriage. The rest were too busy. I could go on and on with how the church has slept while the satan stole the country.

    The church is at ease in America, but this is about to come to an end.

    God bless you.

    You're right, Brother McTernan: "Anonymous" is so smart that he completely missed your point! You sure are a patient and loving teacher, wanting to clarify your teachings to those not quite bright enough to understand them the first time around, like the other 150,000 of us did.

  8. JR says:

    John, we glean your "content" not your grammar or spelling! Keep giving us your info, we know you work hard to keep up with it all, and it can be fast and furious keeping current at times I am sure!
    We are greatful, and so many of us look forward to your blog each day. We miss it dearly, in between postings!
    There is so much good info stored on your past postings, if one had any confusion, it's all in there, one just has to go back and follow it all.
    GOD BLESS YOU JOHN.

    Once I put a posting together, it all looks right to me. I do have a proofreader that does a great job, but I post at all hours and sometimes there is a delay in proofreading. Eventually, the posting will be clean!

    John, Keep up the hard work you do for the Body of Christ, not many I know do what you do.
    Also do you do it to please man… or God!

    I think God!

  14. John Notter Jr. says:

    I taught school for twenty years, but I still make many grammar errors and mistakes when I am not paying close attention to what I am doing. Especially if I am trying to get a thought out too quick. I hate making mistakes, but it happens! That is why I spent so much time working on editing with students during the writing process. If any of you figure out a way to not make an error, please let me know the secret!!!!!

    Here's another Amen and God Bless You to John and his awesome blog site. I am one of the many who look forward to the site daily, and receive much wisdom. I was listening to Chuck Missler on Youtube saying that the true church in the US, in the future, is going to have to go underground, and the greatest persecutors of them is going to be the mainline churches. He said he read this from J.Vernon McGee's commentary 20 years ago and it certainly looks like it's coming to pass. The Lord always has a remnant of His own and watches out for them (think Elijah and the 7,000 who hadn't bowed their knee to ba'al-1Kings 19:18) Lift up your heads for our redemption draws nigh! God Bless Every one of you who read this blog-you're in my prayers!

    The ObaMAD Legend

    Here's a suggested book title for anyone who will someday write about the hopefully short-lived, Obamaniac dictatorship:

    "Double-Crossers, Cross-Dressers & Cross-Bashers"

    (For more Obamania, Yahoo "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," "Obama Supports Public Depravity" and "David Letterman's Hate, Etc.")

    First of all I thank you John for your post and insight. Secondly I feel this nation must fall before the coming of Christ. What we are seeing now and hearing now must happen for the Roman Empire to gain in strength and rule the world. Or Nation is the only this or has been the only thing keep this from happening, by Gods hand. Third, I would not bee surprise if a great calamity were to stick this nation near the same time Israel would strike the Gog and then the Lords hand will make them whole. It's clear in Ezekiel that nuclear weaponry will be used in this battle. I would be shocked if so in America as well to distract us. After all we are broke and this would seal our political fate in the worlds political system. I too am sad that the church sits by and contemplates getting more crowds, pleasing the pew warmers and catering to homosexual agendas. But this too must come before time of the Lord. It's almost as if our sitting by and doing nothing was fortold.
