God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)
Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

A NEW strain of a major fungal disease (Ug99) in wheat is wiping out crops across Africa and Asia - Biblical???
Ug99 has now destroyed 80 to 90 per cent of wheat strains that are resistant to stem rust, and is certain to spread to other parts of the world.
The disease spreads through spores in the wind, Boyd explained, and so has already spread to Pakistan and the Yemen.
It is now only "a matter of time" before it spreads to warmer wheat-growing climates such as China, India, Australia and the Ukraine. However, Boyd warned that a solution is unlikely to surface any time soon, as it takes five years to breed a resistant strain.
Last week, the American Bakers Association (ABA) lobbied the new US Agriculture Secretary, Ed Schafer, along with senior White House officials, to ask for support from the lawmakers.
The visit was prompted by what the ABA called "critically low reserves" of wheat in the country.
Wheat on the Chicago Board of Trade last week rose to trade above US$13 a bushel for the first time since February 27 when the price reached a record.
The price gained 16 per cent b y last week Friday, the biggest such gain in two weeks.
The chief executive of Premier Foods in Britain called for the government to plant more wheat fields to help restore the balance between supply and demand.
In an interview with The Financial Times, Robert Schofield said that wheat prices were unlikely to fall "any time soon", as "demand for wheat was greater than supply."
He advocated that "more land needs to be put under the plough so the supply side is balanced out against the demand."
