September 23

Joseph Herrin (09-23-2017)

Today is the Revelation 12 Sign. Let me give you a few dates that make this interesting.

1897 - First Zionist Congress served with Theodore Herzl. 120 years ago.
1917 - The Balfour Declaration submitted with Britain agreeing to a Jewish State. 100 years ago.
1947 - Israel is proclaimed a nation by the United Nations General Assembly. 70 years ago.
1967 - Six Days War in Israel. Jerusalem made a part of Israel. 50 years ago.
1977 - Anwar Sadat, Egyptian President visits Jerusalem in peace. 40 years ago.

The sign in the heavens is a verifiable sign. There is no point in saying, “It did not happen.” Anyone with a pair of eyes and a clear sky to see the heavens can make this one out. Could it be a point marking the end of the Gentile Gospel and the beginning of the Hebrew or Jewish times foretold in Scripture?

Romans 11:25-26
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved....

In truth, I don’t see how it could be the end of the Gentile church age and the beginning of the Jewish. Nothing that I know of has taken place to indicate that such a change is in the works - yet. That doesn’t mean something could not happen by the end of the year. The year does seem like one to take note of. With all of the anniversaries for the dates in the State of Israel it does seem like something is bound to take place. I suspect that all eyes should be on Israel.

Let me detail the heavenly sign for September 23rd. It comes from Revelation 12.

Revelation 12:1-6, 10-17
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days... Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua Christ.

Technically, there is nothing to make a person think of Israel as the woman in the passage above. The woman strikes me as the church, though I am not so hard and fast with my interpretive rules as I once was. It is possible that the sign of September 23rd and the dates relating to Israel are not conjoined. At least they are not joined in an obvious way. Perhaps we should view them separately, or the sign in the heavens is not the sign of Revelations at all. I have in the past seen the sign in the heavens as a larger sign, a sign including a dragon who attempts to consume the child, the man-child. There is no dragon ready to scoop up the man-child when he is born. There are a few serpents that are fairly close, but none that I would consider the one. It seems that something further must happen to complete the sign.

With that said, I have never gotten to the point where I was really good at interpreting the more obscure or unusual signs in the heavens. Give me a clear sign such as a total solar eclipse and it is more of a simple matter. We can agree that everything about us was created, and it was Yahweh who created all things. His Son is called “the Word.” He looks for things to speak through. The stars are not left out.

Psalms 19:1-4
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.

This day many preachers are proclaiming that Yahweh is speaking profound things. They say it with absolute surety, but I cannot. I am not sure what the Lord is saying. I do know that He is speaking and that there is much to the anniversaries of this year. I will keep my ear tuned to Yahweh. In due time all His words will be known.

I share these things that you might keep your ear tuned also. Seek Him and He may show you mysteries while the rest of the world is scratching their heads in wonder.

Season of the Hurricane

Joseph Herrin (09-21-2017)

Our Yard After Hurricane Irma

I mentioned that I spent a couple of days after Hurricane Irma cleaning up trash in our yard and mowing the grass. The yard now looks as good as it gets. I piled the brush in a pile. To give you a sense of the size of the brush that I piled, it is over head height.

The brush pile goes back to the tree behind it. I also got some diesel to pour on it when my daughter is ready to burn it. She will move it to an open spot up near the driveway to burn it. I spent two days getting the yard back in shape. I consider that pretty good timing as it was unusually cool for the time of year in Georgia. After 3 days it returned to much warmer weather. It has been in the lower 90s during the day and getting down to the mid to upper 60s at night.

It seemed fortunate that the warm weather returned at the same time that the power came back on. My bus is parked in the shade of a couple of trees, but it still gets hot here, and the humidity is rough at times.

Yesterday I had my last bout with the hurricane. I had come down to the Coffee Shop to answer my e-mails on Tuesday. It was late in the afternoon that I decided to get an ice cream cone there. I did notice that the ice cream was sparkly, as if it had refrozen. I should have asked them if they were able to keep it frozen during the storm. I ended up with a case of food poisoning yesterday. I couldn’t eat anything and I slept through much of the day. It was painful to even sit up. I did run to Perry as the computer shop called me to let me know my system was ready. They asked me if I had made my two drives on the system “RAID” drives. When I answered no, the gentleman told me that they had gotten crossed up and started to act as RAID drives when the system was rebooted. He straightened them out.

There has been more in the news lately. The weather channel is still waiting to see if Hurricane Maria is going to strike the East Coast or stay out to sea. We have had so much problem with hurricanes of late. Not a single hurricane has struck the U.S. with major force wind and rain for the last 12 years. There have been 2 to strike it so far this year, and the 3rd one is a possibility, though at this time it has not made up its mind. Hurricane Maria has been a force 5 storm already. It was nearly that strong when it struck Puerto Rico. It was 155 mph which is only 2 mph below a category 5 storm.

Also on September 19th Mexico City was struck by a 7.1 earthquake. It was the same month that Southern Mexico was struck by an 8.1, the most severe earthquake in a century. Tuesday’s earthquake was preceded by many taking earthquake precaution drills on the anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that killed thousands in the same location.

The Bible says the following about earthquakes.

Mark 13:8
There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.

The following is the path of the 2024 Eclipse.

Eclipse of 2024

The eclipse of 2024 touches Mexico, the United States, and Canada. These are things I am pondering in my spirit. The CANAMEX Highway, part of NAFTA, connects the three countries. Following is a description of the Highway in Wikipedia.

The CANAMEX Trade Corridor was outlined in 1991 in the “ISTEA” highway bill, and defined by Congress in the 1995 National Highway Systems Designation Act, Public Law 104-59, November 28, 1995.

Route description
The CANAMEX corridor is defined by the numbered highway designations along its length:

British Columbia
Highway 97 (Alaska Highway)
Highway 2 - Dawson Creek to Alberta border
Highway 43 - British Columbia border to Highway 16
Highway 16 - to Edmonton
Highway 216 through Edmonton
Highway 2 - Edmonton to Fort Macleod, through Calgary
Highway 3 - Fort Macleod to Lethbridge
Highway 4 - Lethbridge to Canada–United States border (Continues as Interstate 15)

United States
Montana - Interstate 15
Idaho - Interstate 15
Utah - Interstate 15
Interstate 15 - Utah border to Las Vegas
Interstate 515 - Las Vegas to Henderson
U.S. Route 93 - Henderson to Arizona border
U.S. Route 93 - Nevada border to Wickenburg
U.S. Route 60 - Wickenburg to Phoenix (makes the highway drivable as a continuous route though it is not officially included)
Interstate 10 - Phoenix to Tucson
Interstate 19 - Tucson to Mexico–United States border

Sonora - Mexico Federal Highway 15

Since the CANAMEX corridor was originally proposed, a second proposal, Interstate 11, would run along a similar path in Nevada and Arizona and replace most of the current non-freeway segments in those states.
[End Excerpt]

Things are seeming rather brittle along the CANAMEX highway. The three countries have been linked in various ways in recent years. President Trump’s war on illegal aliens is only a bunch of smoke. Don’t be distracted by it.

Hurricane Irma

I have been quiet lately for good reason. Hurricane Irma went right by me. It may be more proper to say that Tropical Storm Irma went right by me. It had a greater effect than one would have anticipated. I plan on posting some pictures of my yard in a couple of days. They are week old pictures of my yard, for I spent the two days after Irma cleaning up the yard.

Hurricane Irma didn't really do all that much damage here. It certainly was nothing like the Florida Keys, or southern Florida. The report from the electrical companies here is that it knocked down a bunch of trees, and blew a bunch of branches down. The end result was a mass of transformers out and a great hurry to locate some and to get help in Georgia putting up new lines, poles, and transformers.

My power was out for 3-1/2 days. When I turned my computer on it would not boot. I am now typing on a new laptop computer as my desktop is still in the shop. I just got it online and don't even have my email on it yet as I wanted to get off a blog. Tomorrow the plan is to get my email loaded on here with my email manager so that I can take care of that.

I was remarkably surprised when I did see one email on my tablet yesterday and it was from Office Depot. It was advertising Dell Laptops for less than $500 dollars. I remember when you couldn't get any laptop for less than $1,000 dollars, especially not one like I got that is 15" and has a DVD.

I have found that it is nice to go to the Oases Coffee House in Montezuma, GA. It is only about 3-4 miles from the house. It is Christian owned. Some of my daughter's friends own it and they put her to work setting it up. It has been open a little more than a year. She kept her original job, though. It has free wi-fi. It will be nice to come to the coffee shop and do some computer work.

3-1/2 days without electricity really means without an external source of electricity. I had 12 volt electric, for I have 3 large batteries that supply me with power. All of my lights and fans are 12 volts, as is my potable water system. When not needing emergency water I have water from a pump in the yard. Of course, that didn't work without the power from the poles going to it. I had to rely on my 20 gallon potable water system in my bus. It worked just fine.

In many ways I found my situation to be much better than my neighbors. The local stores were out of charcoal and grills, yet I cooked just like normal on my propane stove and oven. It is a full size one and only has to have the tank refilled about every 12-18 months. I watched as my neighbors hooked up generators to power their house. Then they brought in a large outdoor grill on the back of a pick-up. It is nice to have cooking in my house. It may seem a bit smaller than most peoples homes, but it is just right for me.

My refrigerator had been frozen up. I checked it and after 2 days it was defrosted. I had to go down to the Ace Hardware store and purchase a cooler to keep my food in. Walmart was all sold out. It seems like everyone thought of Walmart, but few thought of the smaller stores. My daughter thought it was funny when I got us some bottled spring water from a new Tractor Supply Company in town. It was 2 days before the storm hit. The Walmart was completely out of spring water, and bottled water for that matter. I found just what I wanted, and they were not expecting a hurricane and were running a special on the spring water.

I did a little more prepping for the storm. I bought some paper plates and plastic ware. They were very nice to use for the 3-1/2 days I did not have regular water. I probably could have washed the dishes, but it was nice anyways.

I took down my mosquito net and canopy which is outside by my bus. I am sure the wind would have made a wreck of them. I put them back up the day after the storm. The weather was unusually cool for about 3 days after. I slept outside in a chaise lounge chair that I had recently gotten. It was very nice. My dog Champ enjoyed the company.

I am back now, and tomorrow I will attempt to answer my email. Be at peace.

A Second Major Hurricane

Joseph Herrin (09-09-2017)

The citizens of the United States will still be cleaning up from Hurricane Harvey for quite a while. Some bayous and rivers are still overflowing their banks in Texas. Now all eyes are on Florida and Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Harvey hit Texas the same week that the total Solar Eclipse gave a sign of judgment to the United States. The Solar Eclipse was on August 21st. Hurricane Harvey struck Texas on August 25th. There are tens of thousands of Texans from Corpus Christi, Houston, Beaumont and other places who are struggling to come to grips with Hurricane Harvey’s extremely slow movement and its record breaking rainfall of over 50 inches. Many rental homes and apartments will not be rebuilt, or will be rebuilt too slowly for their inhabitants to make use of them. Before adequate time can be given to getting the Hurricane Harvey disaster remediated another disaster is looming in Hurricane Irma.

Going back to the Solar Eclipse, it is likely you saw some maps like the following.

Where did the eclipse actually start and end? We are told it was over water, but where was it?

These were the end points. The Solar Eclipse went from left to right. Look at where it ended. It ended right where Hurricanes Harvey and Irma had their beginning.

Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Irma

The spot off the left coast of Africa is where a lot of the hurricanes develop. They are formed by storms that come off of the African Coast. This is precisely where the Solar Eclipse ended.

As I have been watching Hurricane Irma over the course of the last five days I have noticed that its forecast track has gotten further east. It was because it was previously thought to strike on the east side of Florida, near Miami and Fort Lauderdale, that so many of the people from that area have been evacuated. Now that it is predicted to hit the west coast of Florida all those living around Miami and Fort Lauderdale will largely be spared. I live in Georgia and two days ago I noticed that I-75 North was getting packed and developing slowdowns.

(Click to View Larger)

I live in Montezuma. It is not that large, only having a population of about 3,500. It is about 20 miles from Perry, GA which is right where the Interstate goes through. I go to Perry occasionally to shop because it is larger and has many stores that Montezuma does not. As Irma is making a more westerly track it is just about to come right across where I am at in Georgia. According to its track, it should pass to the left side of us, providing the most severe wind and rain upon us. It is still a couple of days out and its track could change some more. Even at its most severe it should only strike this area with 60-70 mph winds. Also, our land slopes down toward the street, making the threat of flooding unlikely.

Side Yard

Hurricane Irma has reached category 5 strength, making it among the strongest hurricanes in the Atlantic. Only one other recorded hurricane has remained with winds above 180 mph for more the 18 hours. Hurricane Irma broke the record with winds in excess of 180 mph set by Hurricane Allen in 1980. She had 180 mph winds for more that 37 hours.

It was with these winds that she struck a number of islands, including Barbuda where the mayor said the island had over 90% of the houses destroyed or damaged.

It has been 12 years since America has been struck by a major hurricane of category 3 or higher. Now, in just 20 days after her solar eclipse sign she is about to be struck by her second one in that short span of time. Will the  track of Hurricane Irma remain on the western coast of Florida, going up through Georgia? The next two days will tell.

Is Irma’s destruction worse than America’s? America has killed nearly 60 million babies since 1973. She has filled the earth with pornography, adultery, homosexuality, drugs, and every form of evil. If you would pray for mercy, don’t pray against the will of Yahweh. He has determined evil against a wicked nation. Let us go into the inner room and pray.

The Remnant Bride

Joseph Herrin (09-05-2017)

This blog is about the book The Remnant Bride. It takes the book from its place on the Heart4God site and gives you a brief rundown on the book. I feel that some of the writings have been on the site for such a length of time that a new reader to the blog would not know about them, so I am going to give a quick review of each of the books I have written from time to time. There are 21 books and I anticipate giving a review of one book every two weeks.

The Remnant Bride is the first book that I wrote back in 1999-2000. I had wanted to write for years, but I had to wait until Yahshua said write to begin. In 1999 he had me start by editing a book by a prophet to our church. The prophets name was Monty Stratton, and he had a profound effect upon my life. It was through his writing that I became aware of the presence of signs, or parables everywhere. There were parables in the Bible everywhere I looked, from the creation of the heavens and the earth in Genesis to the revealing of the kingdom of Yahshua in Revelation. There were also revelations in the news, and in the signs all around us. I came to see that this was so as I edited Monty Stratton’s book called The Unveiling.

Please realize that I wasn’t writing Monty Stratton’s book, I was merely editing it. His grammar and diction were in disarray in many places. He asked me to correct this, but asked me to not change the style of writing nor to present his facts in different ways. I did precisely what he asked for. I suppose I made more than a couple thousand edits to his writing while leaving the presentation exactly as he wrote it. This was a little bit hard for me as I am a writer at heart and I saw many changes I would make to his book. Nevertheless, I left it the way he wanted it and I gleaned much from what he wrote.

I did not know it at the time, but the Lord was using this time in teaching me how to write a book. He had many books for me to write over the coming years, and the number is 21 to date. After editing the book for Monty Stratton, and writing the introduction, I felt a release in my spirit to begin writing my own books. This was quite unexpected, for up until this time I had felt like writing many books only to have the Holy Spirit say no, the time was not yet. This had gone back to my time in college where we had to take a test to earn our degree. The test had two parts, and the part I want to mention is the writing portion. We had to choose one of three essays, whose terms were given to us. The essays were then sent to three professors throughout the state and each one graded our writing. When mine came back there were no errors on it, and no suggestions for making it better. I received an award for having a perfect essay.

Writing was not unusual for me. I had done lots of writing in High School. The Lord had channeled me into this route by giving me brittle bones. I had a hereditary bone disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or imperfect bone formation. I had broken about six or seven bones while in Middle School and High School, and I had not done much to break them. I took it easy when at home and would go to the library a couple times a week and check out five or six books at a time. I spent my free hours in my room reading books. This too would be used to prepare me for writing many years later.

If one should think that their natural strengths are all that is needed to minister, they are wrong. The Lord showed me that I could not lead a single person to him by my own powers. Unless the Lord told me to share with a person I would be like a still small voice in the midst of a hurricane. I not only needed the Lord’s leading, I needed His power. In 1999 I sensed His leading me to write a book. The book was called The Remnant Bride. I was 38 years old.

You may think 38 years old seems like an awfully long time to be called of the Lord to write. I had many things I had been taught wrong that I needed to get right first. I was raised in church in a Conservative Baptist denomination and I thought that everything I saw and did in church was right. About the time I turned sixteen I began to differentiate between denominational doctrine and Yahweh’s doctrine. It would take until I was 38 for the Lord to tell me that I was ready to write.

I had always been one to study according to theme. I could not teach the Bible beginning with Genesis One and going on book by book. I lived with my Strong’s Thesaurus and the myriad topics that I searched out since I was about 14 years old. This new book I was to write was to be no different. I would write on the bride of Christ the way I studied it. I would pick out a topic on it and write about it. My first topic was answering the question of who was the bride of Christ. Interestingly enough, it was not the whole church as many taught. I would go back to the types and shadows of the Old Testament to demonstrate that the bride was a remnant portion of the body of Christ.

I had to look at the bride of the first Adam to see that the bride was not his whole body. In I Corinthians 15:45-49 we read a comparison between the first Adam and the Last Adam who is Christ.

I Corinthians 15:45-49
And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

Even as the first Adam and the Last Adam are pictures of each other, so too are their brides. Where did the bride of the first Adam come from.

Genesis 2:18, 21-23
Yahweh God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him..." Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. He made the rib, which Yahweh God had taken from the man, into a woman, and brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She will be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."

It is quite obvious that the church is called “the body of Christ.” Even as Adam’s bride was not made from his entire body, but from a remnant portion, so too is Christ’s. After all we read of Christ having guests at His wedding. The choice part of Christ’s body comes from those who give all for the Lord.

Matthew 13:8
But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

The bride is the hundredfold portion of Christ’s body.

I took some other parables that Yahweh brought to me at that time. One of them was the parable of the butterfly. One can see that this is a theme by looking at the cover of my book. There is a butterfly on the index finger of the hand. There is also a caterpillar crawling up the arm near the wrist, and attached in the inside of the hand is a cocoon. I will let the reader take a look at the book to get their own idea of what all that is about.

The book takes different looks at the bride of Christ. It looks at Esther as a picture of the bride. It looks at David as a picture of the bride. The Bible is full of the bride from the first chapter of Genesis to the last chapter of Revelation.

It is time to renew an interest in the bride. We need to stir ourselves up to be among the hundredfold. While we are at it we ought to send this book link to everyone we have a hope for of becoming the bride of Christ. Let us be quick to say,

Revelation 19:7-9
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

Newsletter Ministry Changes

Joseph Herrin (09-01-2017)


For those who are giving in the support of the ministry of newsletters to prisoners some definite changes are taking place. Please read this entry so that you don’t miss anything.

Most of my readers know that I experienced a stroke in May of last year. I am very blessed that I am able to continue with writing, for almost all of my ministry has been of the written kind. If you sit and talk with me you will realize immediately that I have a struggle with grasping hold of all of my words. The stroke affected the right side of my body which leads me to believe that it was the left side of my brain that the stroke was on. It seems that my brain’s wiring became severed, or blocked, but not extremely or overwhelmingly. Some words will elude my brain’s ability to capture them, but if I sit and think on it for a while, sometimes a good while, I usually can think of the word. If someone else says the word I can recognize it at once as the word I was searching for.

There are some other types of things that I have a hard time with. I can walk and use my right side of my body, but not well. I am going down to a little gym in town every morning to exercise. My best things to do are things that I can stand or sit on and use the handles to balance myself. The treadmill works good as long as I can hold on to its sides for support. I can drive myself down to the gym because things are just fine when I am sitting down.

Yet not all things are so good. I have had a lot of problems with the newsletters lately. They have been especially hard since I was never good at building a database before I had a stroke. It would be nice if a stroke gave you something you couldn’t formerly do, but that is not the way they work. Now trying to figure out the database is exceptionally difficult, even impossible. My newsletters are unlike most of them out there. My newsletters consist of my 21 books and a lot of shorter writings. You can request to get four books out of order, but other than that they come in basically the order they were written. Because of this nearly all of the men are receiving different newsletters. To get them to this place takes quite a bit of programming, and I have learned that Microsoft’s products (Publisher, Excel, Access) are not age compatible with one another. Because of this I cannot get them working right and I am not the person to sort this problem out.

For this reason I am very happy that Yahweh brought George Young into my life. George moved into the area about one month prior to my stroke. He had read some of my writings and they were used of Yahweh to greatly minister truth to him. He has been asking Yahweh why He brought him here and the answer he has gotten was that he is to help me. That is quite a bit like our Father. Before we have a need He sends an answer. One month before I had a stroke He sent George to help me.

As you know, George has helped me to redesign my main site ( He has then asked me what is next. We both felt that the newsletters were next. Let me tell you a little bit about this calling.

Years ago, before I was called into service myself, Yahweh led me to a book that was preparatory for serving as a minister. It was called God’s Armor Bearer. It was a fairly simple book, but it had some truth in it. It took the example of the Old Testament armor bearer and brought it forward into the New Testament age. It showed how the role of an armor bearer was essential for all who would be ministers of God. You had to show yourself strong in the role of an armor bearer before you could be considered to be a minister in your own rite. There are obvious exceptions to this role, but Yahweh impressed it upon me with a Timothy to Paul emphasis.

Acts 18:1-5
After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth. He found a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by race, who had recently come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome. He came to them, and because he practiced the same trade, he lived with them and worked, for by trade they were tent makers. He reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded Jews and Greeks. But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, testifying to the Jews that Yahshua was the Christ.

Here is an example of Timothy in the role of an armor bearer. He did whatever he could to free up Paul to preach Yahshua Christ all the more. I feel that George, being a new believer, is called to exercise himself as an armor bearer. He says he feels the call to be a minister. Yet the only thing Yahweh is directing him to do is to help me. In the same way I was called to help some other ministers in my early days. It matters not whether the ministers are totally correct in what they teach. We are prepared for ministry as we do a very good job in serving others and helping out ministers.

George has asked me if he could take over the newsletter ministry. I have sensed the Lord’s voice in this and have agreed to let him do so. As George does a very good job, not just in working, but in praying also, we will see the newsletters bearing life. George is going to have all the newsletter work in his control. He is going to learn how the Lord would have him to print the newsletters. He is going to discern how he is to put the newsletters together, and how he is to mail them. He is not obligated to do as I have done the past six or seven years since I have started them at the Lord’s command. He is to do it the way the Spirit leads him.

For all of you that would like to help George in this ministry, he is going to keep using the same Post Office Box that has been used. I will include it at the end. George is also going to receive donations from his own PayPal site. He has his own web page and has his PayPal listed there. I encourage all of you to check out George’s website and get the information that is listed there.

George is going to get the program up and running quickly with the $2,200 printer that I have given him. He is already looking into an optimum way to print that goes beyond the printer. The number of newsletters has already reached the maximum number that can be printed on the ColorQube printer, but it could still work for a little while.

I know that George would like to have contact with someone that has good Access and Visual Basic skills. He may settle on other programs as the newsletter grows some more and call for more help, or if you know of a good program now that he can use, please let him know.

If each person who contributes to this gives themselves to prayer first there is no telling how far it could go. The newsletters have truth recorded in them. They begin with Overcoming Addiction By the Spirit of Christ which sets forth the gospel in a nuts and bolts way, to Lunacy and the Age of Deception which is provided that all men might know that the very boldest things ascribed to man never took place. The whole world lies in the power of the evil one. Please give yourselves to prayer about this and seek Yahweh that you might be considered to be one who might help this to go forward.
