To all my family,
When I was 19 years old, two men spoke to me about Jesus Christ. I did not
want to listen to them at first but I had promised them I would. So I did.
They told me many things I did not want to hear. I did not believe them at
first. I did have a Christian upbringing in the Catholic Church in which the
seed of knowing Jesus Christ was sown. But the seed was not watered and so
it did not grow.
I did not understand then who Jesus truly was. I heard that He was our
Savior. That He died on a cross. But those were just words to me. The two
men told me that Jesus died for all people including me so that our sins
would be remembered no more. They said that we are made righteous through
faith in Him who died for our sins. Jesus Christ (God who became flesh), a
man without sin who gave Himself as a living sacrifice, who shed His blood
so that all that call on His name and believe in their hearts will be saved.
Many people say they believe, and say they are good people, and believe they
are going to heaven because of their good works. But it is not by good works
that we go to heaven, but by grace. And this grace is freely given to all
who call on the name of Jesus, the name above all names. Someone will say,
you have faith; I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will
show you my faith by what I do. You believe there is one God, good; even the
demons believe that and shudder. We all screw up—me especially. But I know
that Jesus will forgive me. I repent, and believe in my heart that Jesus is
the Son of the living God, and pray that I will not do it again.
You are now living in a time when the world is perplexed about what is going
on and what is going to happen next. As all of you have seen and heard,
things just seem to be getting worse and worst. You have seen the weather
getting worse; people not caring; fathers abusing their wives and children;
mothers killing their children. People now use language that is foul,
language that should not be used in front of their mothers, but that parents
now use in the presence of their children. Many have said they are
Christians. Now you know who are Christians and who are not. Those left
behind are not. I would counsel those who have been left behind to dwell on
God said: “the days are coming when I will bring my people Israel out of the
lands of the north from around the world and restore them back to the land I
gave their forefathers to possess” (Jeremiah 16:14-15). And that the
generation that sees this will not perish before Jesus returns. A generation
is a life span of 70 or 80 years (Psalm 90:10). On May 14, 1948, Israel
became a nation. God said, “that generation would grow in knowledge” (Daniel
12:4). And it has. He also said: “there will be terrible times in the last
days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love,
unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the
good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of
God” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).
There will be a seven-year peace treaty that will be signed between Israel
and the Arab nations (Daniel 9:27). This treaty will be signed after all
those that believe in God’s son Jesus Christ (those that truly believe in
their hearts, and are doers of his word) are taken to heaven (Thessalonians
4:17). God says: “the righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout people are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are
taken away to be spared from evil” (Isaiah 57:1). This is what had just
happened—the rapture of the church. I tried to talk to you about this, but
you did not want to listen. Some of you had called me and others like me
“Jesus freaks,” “obsessed,” and “nuts.” That’s okay. I did the same to many
Christians before I found the truth, that Jesus is real and can save people
from their sins. You can still be saved and join me here in heaven. Just
confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God
raised Him from the dead, and you will be saved.
In the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52), Patty and I and millions
of others were taken, but we will return with Jesus after the seven years
are finished. Woe to those who are left behind for these times will be
terrible. You are now entering the tribulation period. You have a one in
four chance of making it to the end, when Jesus will return and set up His
kingdom here on earth.
The United States is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. I believe it will be
partly destroyed by terrorists. And because of that, it will be trying to
get its feet back on the ground, and it will follow what the world tells it
to. During this time a security system will be set up, and require all
people to receive a chip or mark in their right hand or head for
identification. Anyone who does not receive this mark will not be able to
buy or sell anything.
Revelation 13:16-18 says that you will be arrested and most likely be put to
death if you do not take the mark. Who then would take the mark? All will
take the mark, except those who have found the truth: That Jesus Christ is
Lord and King. They will know that any person that receives this mark shall
NEVER enter the kingdom of God; hence they will give up their lives so that
they may live with Jesus Christ for all eternity.
I know you are all very good people. Your accomplishments are great in men’s
eyes. You have all done very well. But God requires faith in his only son
Jesus Christ, and to be doers of His word. How then can you be doers of His
word? You have to read His word. If you do not read His word, you cannot do
the work He has given you. Faith without works is dead.
Your works are earthly works (i.e. being a nurse, salesman, banker, and
business owner). Being good at this kind of work is beneficial to feed the
physical body and to keep it alive and well. But if you do not feed your
spiritual body, it will die. We feed the spirit by reading God’s word and
believing in what He says. We do not pray to angels, saints, Mary or anyone
else. Jesus is the only intercessor. God says to pray to Him and to Him
only. (Remember that Jesus is God, the Holy Spirit is God, and the Father is
God.) We pray to God only and read His word daily so that the seeds that
were sown in us may grow. You say, “I can’t read the Bible,” “I don’t
understand it”, or “I don’t have time.” If you pray before you read the
Bible, the Holy Spirit will explain it to you (John 14:26). Do not expect to
understand all that you read. It takes time. Like a baby who will one day be
an adult, it takes time. Accepting Jesus in your hearts and repenting of
your sins, believing that God sent Himself, in mortal flesh to die for your
sins, this is what makes us righteous before God. We have Jesus that saves
us; that is why He came.
So many people do not realize how easy it is for their name to be written in
the book of life. Here is a little story. A man was trying to explain
salvation to his carpenter friend who had just finished making a beautiful
cabinet. But his friend just didn’t understand. He picked up a carpenter’s
plane and started to plane the just-finished cabinet. His carpenter friend
screamed at him, “don’t touch it. You’ll ruin it, it’s finished.” “That’s
what I have been trying to tell you,” the man said, “It was finished on the
cross when Jesus died for your sins. You can’t add to it or take away from
Again, I beg you, do not take the mark of the beast. He will force everyone,
small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his
right hand or forehead. No one could buy or sell unless he had the mark,
which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for
wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast,
for it is a man’s number. His number is 666 (Revelation 13:16-18).
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Please read: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-15; John 3:16018; John 14:6.
I love you all. Please ask Jesus into your hearts, and be “baptized in the
Holy Spirit.” If you do this, you will go to heaven. And what joy you will
