Looking Ahead to the Very Near Future

There’s a thing called ‘normalcy bias’. Basically, it’s the assumption people have that since everything is ok right now, that things will continue to be ok. People don’t think that cancer, or a car accident, or a natural disaster will happen to them. That belief is, of course, absolutely wrong. Bad things happen to people all the time, and no one makes it through their life without something happening, at some time.

But more of the time, we recover. We move on. We continue.

For example, we assume that despite everything going in the world right now, that things will somehow still be ok. The government will bail someone out, provide healthcare, build a wall (or prevent a wall being built). We support or despise the man in power, forgetting that the only reason anyone is ever in power is because God chose to put them there. This is true of Trump, this was true of Obama. America is going through a difficult time right now, but normalcy bias tells us we’ll be ok. We’re a world superpower, we’re too big to fail, too important to fall…as Assyria did, as Rome did, as all the world superpowers before us did.

America is great because she is good. When she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.      – Alexis de Tocqueville

The above statement, written not long after our founding, is absolutely true. America has done some evil things in her past, but always, there has been enough righteous, God-following people within her to change that evil. But now…that isn’t the case. There are very few righteous people left, people who genuinely believe in the God of the Bible, and who seek to follow his will for their lives. A VERY great number profess to be Christians, but doing ‘Christian’ things, and sitting on a church pew doesn’t make you a genuine Christian. There is only one way to God, and it has nothing to do your works.

Most of these false Christians have been swayed by the world into accepting evil as good. The Bible said this would happen.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

The Bible also told us what would be the result. Watchmen would recognize the signs of the end, and would sound the alarm to warn the world, but the world would not listen.

2 Peter 3:3-4 
…knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.  They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”

But regardless of what the world believes, the Day of the Lord will come, and it will happen so quickly and so suddenly that the world will be shocked and stunned.

Matthew 24:37-44
For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.

The Bible gives amazing, detailed prophecies regarding what the world will look like at the time right before everything changes forever. These prophecies are so detailed and specific that only about 70 years ago, many people believed they had to be taken “spiritually” rather than literally, because they were about things people thought were absolutely impossible. The regathering of Israel into a nation again. The presence of Russia in Syria, and Russia’s alliance with Turkey and Iran. The exact technology we have now, and the genetic tinkering we are currently doing – even mentioning an ‘abomination’ of swine and mouse. https://futurism.com/scientists-used-genetic-modification-to-create-low-fat-pigs/

The Bible says the warning signs of war, famine, pestilence, natural disasters, and technology will be as the birth pangs of a woman – increasing in frequency and strength until the time of the end. I could write an entire book about just the signs of natural disasters, but here is just one example:

Known Asteroids Passing Less Than One Lunar Distance From Earth (2001 – 2018):
2001 – 1
2002 – 2
2003 — 5
2004 — 10
2005 — 6
2006 —- 12
2007 —– 15
2008 —— 20
2009 —– 19
2010 ——- 22
2011 ——— 27
2012 ——- 22
2013 ——– 23
2014 ————– 32
2015 ——— 27
2016 ——————- 60
2017 —————— 56
2018 —————————— 91

One day, very soon, two massive asteroids will hit the earth.

Revelation 8: 8-11

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A thirds of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

Every genuine Christian who is awake and paying attention knows that the end is coming – and it’s coming very, very, very soon. I just bought some fertile eggs to put underneath one of my hens to hatch, and I truly doubt whether I’ll see those eggs hatch out. Everything I do now, everything I plan is based on this knowledge: JESUS IS COMING FOR US. SOON. I cannot stress this enough. It IS true, it IS happening, and the world has very little time left.

Because while he is coming with great joy to rescue his Church from the world, he is also coming  to deliver righteous wrath on the evil being done in the earth. He has blessed America above most of the world because America was good. But America has turned away, America is actively celebrating horrific evil.

Abortion is evil, absolutely. And not only do they want to murder the unborn FULL TERM babies, they want to actually deliver babies, then set them aside to ‘rest comfortably’ while the mother decides whether she wants to have her child killed or not. These people who do this…some of the women honestly don’t understand what they are doing, they are brainwashed or ignorant, but the doctors know.

Pedophilia is now being pushed into public acceptance. The new revelations about Michael Jackson’s abuse of children prompted Barbara Streisand to comment: “You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard them say, they were thrilled to be there,” she said. “They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”

God cannot and will not allow this forever. America (and the rest of the world) will be rightfully and righteously judged, and this judgment will be the worse thing ever to happen to the world. If you’re in America, in particular, I’m not certain you will survive, however much prepping you’re done. More and more I believe America will be completely and absolutely destroyed, wiped forever off the map. I had hope that the people I know who aren’t currently believers would have time to realize the truth and accept Christ after they see the Rapture of the Church happen, after they finally recognize the truth of what I’ve been saying….but I’m not so sure anymore that’s going to be possible. I think the total destruction might be too sudden and too complete.

But the judgement of the world is something that not only will happen, but it has to happen. The world cannot continue going on as it is now, growing more and more evil. God will bring it to an end, so he can remake it into the glorious creation it was before sin entered into it.

After this, there will never again be sin, or death, or pain, or sorrow in the world again.

Maranatha!

Revelation Videoshoot

Last month, I did something new – I did the costuming for a Route 66 video.  I’d done a few very small things for a couple of previous ones, but this one (which was the grand finale) I was really the primary costumer.

The other videos were done by amateur cameramen, using a small storage unit as the sound stage.  For this one, we had a professional cameraman (Michael Lienau of Global Net Productions) and our crew built a massive stage in the Commercial Aircraft Interiors warehouse.

I knew what they were planning to do, but it was still awesome to see when I got a sneak peek of the set the day before! Huge green screen!

The costumes I made were for the Harlot, the Apostle John, and the Seven-Headed Beast (more about the Beast later.)  Since I literally only had a few days to put this together, only the Beast was made from scratch.  The Harlot was scavenged from my own personal costumes…we’re very lucky the actress we ended up with (Val Thomas) was pretty much my size!

Points to anyone who recognizes parts of my Steampunk Saloon Girl and Renaissance Courtesan in her costume – plus my Red Queen wig! Behind her in this shot is the Red Dragon. The director wanted her to be very rich and trashy looking, so I piled on a bunch of stuff that didn’t really match, along with just about every piece of costume jewelry I own (plus some pieces that belonged to her.)

For the Apostle John (Tim McLaughlin), I made his “vacation outfit” of flowered robe and headdress.  I don’t think you can quite tell in this shot, but he’s wearing a full head mask of an old man.  It’s *very* realistic!  The actual actor is only in his 30s, so it was odd to see the transformation.

Checking the scripts one last time….the guy in the yellow shirt is our director/pastor Bruce Wersen.  If he hadn’t become a pastor, he would have been a filmmaker – he was a finalist on the tv reality series “Project Greenlight”.

And here is a video of one of the practice runs:

After we shot this scene, we returned to our old storage unit stage to film the rest of the video.

The Harlot checked her makeup, and we were set to go:

See the Seven Headed Beast in the trunk?  That is seven teenage boys, wearing costumes made out of leopard print pantyhose, horns made of tape, and masks made of plastic, fabric, and paint.

(This is a test of the mask/stockings – we later changed the horn color)

The hardest part was keeping the boys from completely destroying the masks while they waited for their part to be filmed!

Between takes, they relaxed in the Route 66 car:

The whole thing took about 9 hours to film, so it was a long day, but was quite a unique experience!

The most amazing part is that the professional visual effects guy who works on television shows like “Lost”, “Terra Nova” and “Alcatraz” is doing our visual effects as well!  Eric Chauvin, of Blackpool Studios. He is JJ Abrams’ go-to guy, and an original member of Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic.  He’s been nominated for 8 Emmy awards, and won twice!  Bruce Wersen, our pastor/screenwriter/director has some contacts in the film industry, and he just contacted this guy and asked him for help.  At first Chauvin said he was just too busy with all the new shows coming out, but then he agreed to go out for lunch with Bruce, and next thing you know, he’s saying he ‘really wants to be a part’ of this series.  So cool.

And here is the finished video (be sure to watch through the credits to see my name! 🙂
