This week is my 3rd anniversary with WORDPRESS! I couldn’t imagine maintaining a blogsite even 3 years long when I started writing on May 26, 2012. Such a green horn I was, terribly computer illiterate as far as doing anything more than email and word processing that I was familiar with. Some of my challenges with blogging are chronicled in ‘ABOUT MY BLOG’ in the Side Bar CATEGORIES (read May-June 2012). When I first told my son that I wanted to start a blog, he told me it was easy to do and to go with WORDPRESS. That was the extent of encouragement he gave me because he knew nothing beyond the fact that he knew people with WORDPRESS blogs. So much for his help!
Few people even know that my intention was not to have my own blog site, but to practice starting a blog under my name and learn how to do a blog, then soon after I would launch Drgold’s blog, ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes- Revealing Truths from the Word of God’. I had hoped to get his blog going and I would fade out somehow. When I began to post, I simply reposted content from my Facebook which later was the impetus for my eBook, ‘Sounding the Shofar- Exhortations for the Endtimes’. This eBook can be read FREE from my TAB BAR!
It was quite a daunting task to learn how to blog from books like ‘Blogging for Dummies’ and WordPress tutorials, but the WordPress Support team came to my aid, as well as two blogger friends, Shekinah and Rommel, who helped me with the technical aspects of our blogs. It was by the GRACE OF GOD that we were able to get Drgold to publish his first Bible lesson on June 22, 2012, a month after mine got going. His first post, ‘What Really Happened In the Garden of Eden- God’s Eternal Purpose Revealed’, Part 1, remains one of his top posts. A popular post on my site is ‘Why Do People Resist God’. There are viewers of this 2013 post every week!
Drgold has been posting important End Times teachings and at this date has had over 52,000 views- over 20,000 more than me! Of course, we have different writing styles and reach different audiences, but our focus is the same- America, the church, Endtimes, preparing people for the Lord’s Return and for the Rapture, and related subjects. Serious students of the Bible and followers of current events and Bible prophecy gravitate to his blog, while I have a diverse group following my blog site because my varied interests also include art, music, travel and photography.
Here is a word from DrGold:
“I have been serving the Lord for 42 years, and back about 3 years ago in June 2012, the Holy Spirit told me to begin a blog on the many things He had taught me. God wanted me to go fishing using the Net… namely the Internet, to fish for souls for Him, to reach thousands of people (over 50,000 viewers at this date). At that time in 2012, Liz and I had just completed our 14th missionary trip to the Philippines and to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, since the year 2000. We served as missionaries/evangelists on the main island of Luzon, in Manila, Dagupan City, and further north to Baguio City, teaching in Bible schools, holding Pastors Bible Seminars, and occasional revival meetings. We were seif-sponsored with God leading and opening many doors for us in a number of places such as Cagayan, La Union, Binalonan, Urdanetta, Lingayen, and Abra. Since then, the Lord told us that 2012 might be our last foreign trip. I have since posted over 60 papers on the Internet. Since 2010, I have been teaching the ABC- the Adult Bible Class, at FCCH at 9 am every Sunday, and also for the past 8 years or so, I have served as co-pastor of a Filipino Christian church, preaching every other Sunday.”
Back to me- A WORDPRESS editor wrote an article a while back and said that a viable blog should have at least 10,000 views a year. So I have just ‘made it’ at 31,000 views! Then yesterday WORDPRESS told me I published 500 posts! That is incredible! I have written only a percentage of them, re-posted all of Drgold’s writings, re-blogged and linked from many other blog-sites, compiled popular topics on my TAB BAR, and shared videos of my favorite worship and praise songs, etc. It has been 3 interesting and exciting years of WORDPRESS blogging! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

PROPHECY GIVEN TO LESTER SUMRALL DESCRIBES AMERICA IN THE END TIMES!
AMERICA NEEDS TO REPENT OF HER SINS AND RETURN TO GOD BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE TO DO SO!

Seven things God told Lester Sumrall would come to pass in America back in 1987, and now, in 2015, these things have absolutely come to pass just as He said! Some may say this is “spreading fear”, but God told Lester Sumrall to warn them! Keeping people in the dark about the things coming to pass in America…. is not loving them, it’s deceiving them, and keeping them complacent so they don’t prepare themselves spiritually for the days ahead. The LORD, in his love for mankind has left plenty of warning in His Word, but unfortunately, not all have read it, and some of those who have read it, have either forgotten it, or paid scarce attention to it. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees, the religious folks in his day, of not recognizing the signs of the times.

JESUS, NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES!

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10-11)
BE A SIGN WATCHER!
According to Mt 24:7-8 there are 4 indicators that we are living in the end times or the ‘beginning of sorrows’. These are the rise in wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence and earthquakes.
We are living in the grievous times of the last days. 2 Timothy chapter 3 gives a description of Satan at work causing rebellion, division in the church, persecution of Christians, etc.
Jesus said to pay attention to the signs and to look for His Coming.

Matthew chapter 24 is an often-studied section of prophetic scripture. Here we see Jesus explaining how things will unravel at the end of the world. (It won’t really be the end of the world but the end of an age. We will enter an era of peace on earth that humanity has never known before. I think if people realized this they would be much more eager to explore these end-of-the-world scenarios.)
Jesus is responding to a direct question from the disciples.
They ask him;
- “When shall these things be, and
- what shall be the sign of thy coming, and
- of the end of the world?”
Jesus gave them some details but we wish he had given more. Let’s continue exploring what he said.
Matthew 24: 7-8
7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and…

GOD IS FAITHFUL, EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT.

It’s so easy to forget the Lord. Even when we forget Him, He does not forget us.
‘Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are strong, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel or consult the Lord!’ (1). It’s so easy to forget the Lord. We try to go it alone, and we forget to look to Him for help. Even when we forget Him, He does not forget us. When we turn our backs on Him, He calls us to ‘return to Him’ (6). He reminds us that our true help is found in Him: ‘Our help is in the Name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth’ (Psalm 124:8). We need not look around here, there and everywhere for an answer…

YES, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!
Pray that America returns back to God! Pray that God will forgive us of our sins and heal our land! 2 Chron 7:14

A growing chorus of voices are decreeing God’s judgment upon America and I won’t argue that a day won’t come in which this nation’s cup of wickedness will have finally run over, forcing God’s just and righteous hand. In fact, I marvel that that day hasn’t already arrived. A quick perusing of the daily headlines leaves little doubt that we as a culture are devolving at break-neck speed into barbarity and filth.
The thing is that for years now, while praying for America, I’ve felt strongly impressed to pray against judgement… to intercede for the nation… to plead for mercy, forgiveness, healing. I’ve discerned the invitation to step up and stand in the gap. I am challenged to argue the case for America.
How about you? Are you one of those who’re hunkering down, waiting for God to lower the boom, while preaching doomsday sermons of fiery destruction…
