Lesson 1: The Holy Spirit – The Essence of Life
The Holy Spirit is seemingly the least understood of the members of the Trinity. Although many churches in the modern era TALK about the Spirit, the vast majority of them focus on the “power” and the “gifts”, rather than the Person and Ministry of the Spirit. And even then, they produce a lot of unbiblical information on the “power” and “gifts” that leads to a very unbalanced understanding of what Christianity is really all about.
Hopefully, this study will help us gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the Holy Spirit.
Let’s start at the beginning….. Continue Reading Here

Lesson 8: How Do We Deal With All This?
The information that we have been dealing with in this series of lessons can be terrifying, considering that it appears as if WE are the generation who will have to face the culmination of these things. However, God’s Word has a lot to say to us about how to face these times with courage, righteousness, and strength. We CAN continue to be a valid witness for Christ and His Gospel in the “end times”, but we have to make sure that we are following God’s Word and doing it His way. Continue Reading Here

Lesson 5: The New World Order
Revelation 13:4-8 (NKJV)
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Revelation 13:4-8 announces worldwide Satanism and occultism, and “emperor worship” (as in the Roman empire), and direct attacks upon Christians (again, as in the Roman empire). Worldwide government. Continue Reading Here
Lesson 4: The Satanic “Pentecost”
Revelation 12:7-12 tells us of a time when Satan and his demons are cast to the earth. Remember from the Book of Job that, even after Satan’s rebellion against God, he still had access to the Throne Room as “the accuser”. Now he is ONLY able to be on earth, with his demons. He (Satan) is FURIOUS, and will take it out upon the inhabitants of the earth with his demonic henchmen. Expect to see drastically increased demonic activity, and an increase in the ferocity of that activity against people.
I use the term “Satanic Pentecost” to describe this event because the New Testament Pentecost (Acts 2) was an event where people who had been “prepared” (were already in a relationship with Jesus, either as apostles or disciples) became imbued with “power” (greek, “dynamis”, same as root word for dynamo or dynamite) in a specific way to carry out their “mission” (to live in holiness and to evangelize the world).

Lesson 3: The End Of All Flesh
Matthew 24:15-22 tells us that during the “great tribulation” period, the “tribulation” (trouble, misery, problems, etc.) will be worse than anything that has ever been seen before in the history of the world. Consider everything that we have seen, just in the last one hundred years (WW1, WW2, the Nazi and Japanese atrocities of WW2, “the killing fields”, Pol Pot, Stalin, mass murders and school shootings, widespread devaluation of human life (abortion) and human sexuality (pornography and the sexualization of culture) and so much more), and then consider that this new period will be massively WORSE! Jesus states that if God (in His mercy, and for the sake of His Church) did not put a short time limit on this period, NO FLESH WOULD SURVIVE! Notice it doesn’t say only that no PEOPLE would survive, but that no FLESH (living thing) would survive! Continue Reading Here
Lesson 2: Ordo ab Chaos to produce a Novus Ordo Seclorum
The Latin phrase “Ordo ab Chaos” is translated as “Order out of Chaos”, and is the “motto” of what is referred to as “The New World Order”. This is the major clue as to what is coming in the world, and is why I have chosen to title this study “The Chaos Plan”. The second Latin phrase is “Novus Ordo Seclorum”, which is found printed on every one dollar bill in the US, and is translated as “New Order of the World” (New World Order), but is more accurately translated as “New SECULAR (without God) Order”! Thus we find information about the fulfillment of Psalm 2:1-3 hidden in plain sight. Continue Reading Here

The Rapidly Approaching Time of Spiritual, Social, Political, and Military Transformation Worldwide
It is with a very heavy heart that I prepare this in-depth study. Although I have been aware of much of this information for a number of years, it is only in the last few months that the final pieces have come together, and that God has lain a burden upon me to assemble it together and present it to the Church. I say that my heart is heavy because the conclusions of this study are uncomfortable to me; especially as I consider that my first grandchild has just been born. Even though the END of the story is the tremendous glory and victory of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to rule and reign (Praise God!), the years leading UP TO that end will be filled with trouble and turmoil to an extent never before seen on the face of the earth. Fortunately, God promises that, for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened. My faith in Christ does not waver in the least; but I must admit that I am a frail enough human being so as to desire “that this cup pass” from my family, friends, and loved ones. However, it seems that our current generation is the one that will see the fulfillment of these things, so we must be strong in Christ, and resolve ourselves to live for Him daily, no matter the circumstances around us.

Lesson 14: Leviticus 26-27
BLESSINGS AND CURSINGS (Leviticus 26)
The Blessings for Obedience to God (Lev. 26:1-13)
Twice as much space is devoted to warning as to blessing in this chapter. Adversity, the promised fruit of disobedience, is a tool which God uses, not to inflict revenge but to lead His people to repentance (vv. 40–42). National chastisement would be increasingly severe until the people confessed their iniquity. Notice the progression in verses 14, 18, 21, 24, and 28.
After warnings against idolatry (v. 1), sabbath-breaking, and irreverence (v. 2), the Lord promised the following blessings to the nation if it would keep His commandments: rain, fertility (v. 4), productivity, security (v. 5), peace, safety (v. 6), victory over enemies (vv. 7, 8), fruitfulness, and the presence of the Lord (vv. 9–13).
