Brad & Jennifer,
.....my last letter
Brad & Jennifer, March 3, 2018
You guys were two of my closest friends. If you are reading this, then obviously you found the letter I told you I would always have on my nightstand for you. The one you laughed about when I was there. I never wanted you to have to read this. I'm not here anymore and the day I warned you about has happened. Why didn't you guys ever listen to me? I'm sure the media is labeling it “The Great Disappearance” or some riveting catch phrase, most likely saying it was an alien abduction, but what just happened was the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). Hundreds of millions of people have just disappeared haven't they? Jesus Christ came back. It will take people about 2 weeks to realize that everyone who is missing was a Christian, so I thought I would save you some time and tell you now.
Everything I am about to write has just happened,.and is not confined to just where you live, but has happened worldwide. Cell phones, wallets, keys, and clothes litter the streets. Car crashes by the hundreds all around you with nobody in the driver seat. Planes all over the world have crashed at the exact same time. All babies are gone. Most young children have disappeared. Half of the graves in cemeteries around the world have been opened and the corpse is gone. The church parking lots were empty on Sunday weren't they? The Christian YouTubers don't post videos anymore do they? Every financial system in the world has crashed. Looting is at an unprecedented level, and murder is going unchecked.
Please don't be surprised how I know all of this,..it was foretold in the Bible long ago. Remember that night at the restaurant about a year ago when I told you guys, you wouldn't have forever to make your decision about accepting Christ? Time ran out. He examined the heart, and you were found without Him. It is why you were left behind.
The next 7 years will be a literal hell on earth, you will experience catastrophes like the world has never seen. It is the events I told you guys about in Revelation. I still want to help you guys, so here is your cheat sheet,...everything that is about to happen is listed here > (Revelation chapters 6 – 18). Later on, a man will come onto the world scene to restore order among the chaos. He will implement a voluntary mark of registration needed to buy or sell. DO NOT take it!! It will condemn you to hell. This man is a fraud. He is the Antichrist. He will perform wonders and millions will follow him. Two witnesses for Christ will come on the scene and preach for 42 months, then be killed, then come back to life. How could I possibly know all of this? Because it's in the book I tried to share with you. That book was always the truth.
Living without the mark will be almost impossible. Many will refuse the mark and be killed, some will become Christians, refuse the mark and be killed, and some will actually make it to the end of that 7 years, I pray that will be you...but please understand, that number will be few. Even in all this there is good news. Jesus will return at the end of that 7 years.
Brad & Jennifer,.....everything I have written in this letter has happened or will happen, and I pray I see you guys again. You missed your first chance,.... here's another one.
** This letter is a hypothetical. Unfortunately, one day someone will be reading this for real,......don't let it be you.

- Biblical Context
Who am I? Who cares. Just a guy who can see this world for what it is and where it's headed. A sinner saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ, and forever unworthy. That's it. Praying that this site might reach the lost & unbelieving. To open their eyes & ears to the truth of Jesus Christ. Jesus came into the world to offer salvation and forgiveness to everyone who calls upon His name. When you put your head on your pillow tonight and are all alone with your thoughts, think, do you really know where you will spend eternity? Remember, the key is free. Accepting it,
is up to you.
If you can identify with anything in this website and would like to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, then pray this prayer.....
Heavenly Father, I come to you in prayer asking for the forgiveness of my sins. I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is your Son, and that He died on the cross at Calvary for my sins that I might be forgiven and have eternal life in the kingdom of heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and I ask you right now to come into my life and become my personal Lord and Savior. I repent of my sins and will worship you all the days of my life. Because your word is truth, I confess with my mouth that I am born again, and cleansed by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
** This prayer is between you & God and nobody else! If you truly mean this prayer from your heart, then you will be saved (Romans 10:9). Your life is now covered by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
If you have accepted Christ and are wondering what's next,........
Get into a Bible based church that teaches the whole counsel of God (you will know by their mission statement). If you don't see Ephesians 2:8-9 or John 14:6 or Romans 10:9-10 or 1st Corinthians 15:1-4....be wary. Most churches have a Mission Statement printed on a brochure or on their website.
Get your hands on a Bible. I find the NIV version the easiest to read, although there is always the KJV. There is also biblegateway.com where you can read or listen to the Bible. Start with the book of John,..it will give you a good idea of who Jesus is. Then read the book of Romans, 1st Corinthians, then Ephesians,..it explains how the Gospel works.
Get baptized. Baptism does not save you, nor is it required to attain salvation. Yet it is an outward obedient command showing yourself dying to your old ways and becoming a new creation in Him. It is your public declaration to follow Him.
Surround yourself with others who have the same Christ centered mindset. Get perspectives from others who were once a new Christian, or just email me, I'll do my best to answer any questions you have.
Start listening to a Christian radio station. Start filtering the content on your TV. Let's be honest,....TV is 70% brain-rot, 20% informative, 7% entertainment, and 3% useful.
Be in communication with Him. You don't have to be in some secluded area with your eyes closed, you can talk to Him wherever & whenever,...remember, He lives within you.
