LTRP Note: We are posting this article for informational and research purposes.

A man who underwent a sex change and now regrets it is urging people to resist transgender medicine and related therapies, saying we are medically “manufacturing” children as transgender and abusing them.

Speaking on a panel before a small crowd gathered at the Heritage Foundation Thursday, Walt Heyer, a man who formerly lived and identified as a transgender woman named Laura for eight years. He underwent surgery in 1983 and spoke of his experience of being psychologically abused and how that contributed to significant discomfort with his body. This is now playing out on a massive scale, he said, and the medical establishment is pushing these dangerous hormonal treatments and surgical interventions on thousands of young people.

Lighthouse Trails Sending Out 10th Mailing to Christian Leaders and Pastors

Since January 2016, Lighthouse Trails has been mailing out small booklet packs to Christian leaders and pastors three times a year. This week,* we will be sending our 10th mailing. Since we began the mailings, we have added the names of numerous pastors and ministry leaders, many of whom were sent to us from our readers. Our current list is at 255 names. If you would like your pastor to begin receiving these mailings, please send his name and church mailing address to us at editors@lighthousetrails.com. The following is the letter we will be including with 3 booklets:

Dear Christian Leader:

We hope you find the enclosed booklets we have published helpful in your ministry.

The first booklet, Transgenderism and Our Children, is sadly very relevant to today’s society. Our children are at great risk, and it’s important for Christian believers to have some understanding of this dangerous movement.

The second booklet, The New Evangelization From Rome or Finding the True Christ unveils the plan the Roman Catholic Church has to “bring back the lost brethren to the Mother Church.” It also compares the Catholic “Gospel” with the biblical Gospel.

The third booklet, Eugene Peterson’s Mixed Message: A Subversive Bible for a New Age, documents how New Age terms, innuendos, and ideas are woven through The Message and explains why this paraphrase can be a very misleading substitute for God’s Word.

We hope you will read and prayerfully consider the content of each of these booklets. We send them in an attitude of concern and a devotion to truth.

Sincerely in Christ,

The Editors at
Lighthouse Trails Publishing, Inc.

Bryce Homes in Kenya Update – Recap of Last 8 Years

LTRP Note: Since 2011, Lighthouse Trails has partnered with Understand the Times, International (the ministry of Roger Oakland) in UTT’s Bryce Homes for Widows and Children in Kenya. Lighthouse Trails readers have played an integral role in making this missions program an ongoing reality. The following is a report written by the board in Kenya. If you would like to join many other Lighthouse Trails readers in supporting the Bryce Home program in Kenya, please visit the UTT site.

March 2019 Report by the Board in Kenya for the Bryce Homes Program

In March 2019, Bryce Homes Kenya had an opportunity to develop a report card to assess the outcome of the activities done so far:

1. Number of the Bryce Homes;
As at now, counting eight years down the line, the program sustains 37 Bryce Homes out of which 33 regularly receive support in form of foodstuff every month. The remaining four are now tracing their paths towards self-sustainability following the establishment of Small Business Opportunities under their custody.

2. Building of Shelters for the Bryce Homes
Out of the 37 Bryce Homes, 17 now have good houses to live in. Initially, majority of these homes had temporary shelters mainly made of mud and grass. These posed health risks especially during cold weather. They were not safe either as some would even be penetrated by wild animals. A case was heard when a venomous snake found its way into a house and stayed in the crevices on the wall without trace. Such cases made these dilapidated houses unsafe for human life. Today, courtesy of this Program (Bryce Homes), hundreds of children are now well accommodated and are no longer at risk.

3. Equipping of the Bryce Homes;
Bryce Homes Program did not just build shelters but also equipped them with bedding, wood stoves, and medium sized solar to provide them with light. The light helped their children study while at home while the wood stoves have greatly reduced health risks related to smoke. Click here to continue reading.

Comments From Our Readers

The following are some of the comments that came in this past two weeks from our readers regarding articles posted on our blog. If you would like to post a comment to one of our articles, you may do so at the blog. You only need to give your first name. We would be grateful to hear from you, and such feedback is helpful for others. You can also post comments on the Lighthouse Trails Research Facebook page:

On Andy Stanley and the Bible:I believe a problem occurs when Christians approach the Bible with a personal, preconceived agenda, and then rework their interpretation of scripture to fit that agenda. Scholars have given it the fancy name eisegesis.

For example, a theology that labors on the question “how can a loving God possibly sentence anyone to eternal torment?” inevitably gives birth to doctrines like annihilationism and universalism. A theology that labors on the sovereign omnipotence of God, at the expense of human freedom, leads to Calvinism. Charles Taze Russell’s consternation at being unable to understand the concept of the Trinity eventually led to the emergence of the Watch Tower society.

Here I sense Andy Stanley’s overwhelming desire to repackage the Bible in a way to make its message more palatable to post-modern atheists and secularists. . . . and Andy’s solution is to simply discard the OT. Thus we see a similar process: an agenda caused by the laudable and well-intentioned desire to reach the lost, but ultimately resulting in the same outcome: eisegesis.

We should remember that it is not our responsibility to ‘convert’ unbelievers. 1 Peter 3:15 asks us to give reasons why we believe; it doesn’t require that we present irrefutable secular evidence of God’s existence, a humanly impossible task. All that we’re called upon to do is to present Biblical truth in authentic fashion, to the best of our ability, after which it is the role of the Holy Spirit to convict each individual, breaking through their pride and obstinacy. It is ultimately a spiritual war, as opposed to merely an impeccable presentation of truth.

We are all guilty of eisegesis, to whatever extent we create a personal, mental image of God that is acceptable to us. It is only the Holy Spirit who can correct this image and reveal God’s true character, and give us the correct lens through which to interpret scriptural truth. All provided of course that we are open to this teaching, and humble enough to put our existing preconceptions and misapprehensions aside. David

Francis Chan and Kick Starting a False Revival: All one has to do is to open his Bible and read the New Testament through once to see that what happens at Bethel is asinine and demonic. I used to listen to some of Francis Chan’s sermons after I was saved and was blessed back then … I simply can’t believe he would let himself even be associated with a heretic like Bill Johnson (who teaches that Jesus set aside his divinity to model what someone fully being led by the Spirit can do). Listen to Lindsay Davis’ testimony of getting kicked out of Bethel’s version of Hogwarts because God graciously opened her eyes to the truth. Jesus Culture is just the gateway drug into Bethel … draw em in with the music and then give them the kool-aid! Doug

Francis Chan and Kick Starting a False Revival:You just have to shake your head at the excuses those who are compromising make. It takes one step, and then another in the wrong direction to change the course of a person's spiritual walk. It would appear that too many popular teachers have rejected what Scripture says about false teachers. It’s better to stand alone firm in the truth of God’s Word than join the crowd in false unity and error. Nancy

Francis Chan and Kick Starting a False Revival: CH and I have been warning people for years about a coming false and deceptive “Revival.” Most have ignored it, refused to accept even the possibility of such an occurrence, and have called us false prophets/teachers and rejected us along with others who have spoken likewise. The professing church sleeps not even aware that deception is rocking the cradle they sleep in. Cedric and Cheryl

Roma Downey Financial Support of Marianne Williamson: In Romans 1:32, it is written in plain Greek that God equates the approval of ungodly deeds as bad as doing ungodly deeds. Approving a false teacher is just as sinful as being a false teacher, in the eyes of God. Is ignorance an excuse? Is ignorance still an excuse when LTRP sends them correct information and they shrug it off? Many are quick to attack LTRP for being devisive rather than working for unity. Yet the real problems are the ones who are so of pride that will not listen to the truth. Further what unity can light have with darkness? Matt. 18:15-18 is only applicable to confronting someone who has sinned against YOU personally. In Matt. 23, Jesus publicly blasted all of the spiritual leaders of His day. Nowhere do we read that He talked to them in private first. People who openly deceive in public need to be openly confronted in public. The stark warning of Ezek. 33 must also be considered. Paraphrased it warns us all that; blood guilt will be upon the hands of those who see danger and yet refuse to warn others of the danger. Lastly the phrase, “the Lords anointed” is used almost exclusively to OT kings of Israel under the Law of Moses. Calling any pastor the Lord's anointed is un-biblical utter nonsense. That phrase cannot be found in the NT. T.I.

The Jeremiah Calling: We are each called to be a “Jeremiah.” Every believer is given opportunity to stand for the truth – whether with a family member or friend, or with the Board and Pastor of their church. Much of the wrong teaching delivered to the the church goes unopposed by Believers who know better but don’t stand boldly for the truth. Dave

The Jeremiah Calling: Mr. Oakland, You said, “While more and more pressure is put on pastors to conform to a reinvented form of Christianity that no longer uses God’s infallible Word as the foundation of faith, from God’s perspective, nothing has changed.” And that is the truth! Just today (3/29/2019), I received a postcard in the mail from a local Charismatic/Pentecostal church addressed to “our neighbors,” inviting my family to “Rediscover Church,” at their “worship center.” I am reminded of this verse from: Proverbs 18:2 “A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.” Needless to say, I am greatly disturbed by that minister who has been steadily attracting people to his church (which he owns) for several years now. Thank you for a timely message. The war is heating up, and we need to sharpen our swords through reading and studying the Word of God, as we prayerfully listen to Him in obedience to His Holy Spirit. May God be with you and all God’s people who love our LORD Jesus Christ in sincerity! C. Read

Roma Downey’s Financial Contribution to New Ager Marianne Williamson Raises Many Questions
Screenshot from a May 25, 2014 article in People Magazine, taken from Pinterest (used in accordance with the US Fair Use Act)

Evangelical leaders such as Rick Warren, Greg Laurie, and David Jeremiah have shown public support for Roma Downey and her books, movies, and other media work for a number of years now. Lighthouse Trails has attempted to alert these leaders and the church at large that while Downey may be a sincere person, she is a New Age sympathizer and has consistently supported those sympathies.

This week, a Lighthouse Trails reader sent us a link to a March 27, 2019 article from the Center for Public Integrity that disclosed that Roma Downey contributed $2600 to Marianne Williamson’s 2014 run in California for Congress. Proof of this contribution can be seen on a government website (Federal Election Commission) that shows a tax record for Marianne Williamson for the year 2013 (when the contribution by Downey was made – see page 135 of the report). Marianne Williamson is one of today’s foremost New Age leaders and is running for president in 2020. It was because of Williamson that the New Age “Bible,” A Course in Miracles (see video), became popular in mainstream America after Williamson’s book Return to Love (promoting A Course in Miracles) was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show. A Course in Miracles has the quintessential New Age message that God dwells in every human being and that each person has a Christ consciousness. It is this same New Age “God” who believes that “the era of the single savior is over”(1) and that Hitler actually did the Jews a favor by killing them. Listen to the following quotes by the New Age “God”:

The real issue is whether Hitler’s actions were “wrong.” Yet I have said over and over again that there is no “right” or “wrong” in the universe. A thing is not intrinsically right or wrong. A thing simply is.2

Now your thought that Hitler was a monster is based on the fact that he ordered the killing of millions of people, correct? . . . Yet what if I told you that what you call “death” is the greatest thing that could happen to anyone—what then?3

So the first thing you have to understand—as I’ve already explained to you—is that Hitler didn’t hurt anyone. In a sense, he didn’t inflict suffering, he ended it.4

The mistakes Hitler made did no harm or damage to those whose deaths he caused. Those souls were released from their earthly bondage, like butterflies emerging from a cocoon.5

These quotes were said by the New Age “God” in Neale Donald Walsch’s highly popular book series Conversations With God (as cited in Warren B. Smith’s booklet Oprah Winfrey’s New Age “Christianity.” Such sentiments as are revealed in these quotes express the underlying truth about the New Age “God.” 

Roma Downey is free to believe whatever she wants to believe. That is one of the great benefits of living in a free and democratic country. Our concern (one that is growing by the day) is with Christian leaders (men and women who name the name of Jesus Christ, who are highly influential and looked up to by millions – such as Greg Laurie and David Jeremiah) who are exhibiting very little or no discernment, such as in the situation with Roma Downey. And many are being misled because of this.

Some may say that we should not be bringing up her contribution of $2600 to Marianne Williamson during her run for Congress because that was six years ago. But as we have documented for some time (including in Greg Reid’s recent booklet Butterfly Illusions), Downey has never recanted or renounced her New Age affinities and continues promoting them. Not that long ago, she even said that  Oprah Winfrey was “on fire with the holy spirit.” To say something like that about a major New Age leader shows there is something amiss. The thing is, when someone comes out of the New Age (e.g., Warren Smith, Johanna Michaelsen, Caryl Matrisciana), a natural outcome of that is to want to warn about the things he or she was once promoting. But Roma Downey has not done that. 

Have any of these leaders (i.e., Greg Laurie, David Jeremiah, Rick Warren) ever sat down with Roma Downey and told her that the New Age “God” is not the God of the Bible and is actually in dire opposition of the message of the Cross? And have these men ever made a public admission that they were wrong to give credence (either directly or indirectly) to a woman whose beliefs are so contrary to biblical Christianity? In one recent article we published, we documented with two video clips where Downey was promoting the idea that God is in everyone. You can see those clips by clicking here.

Recently, we have been addressing Francis Chan, another popular evangelical leader, after he said that God would destroy (kill) those who challenge and criticize Christian leaders. Whether he realizes it or not, he is trying strongly to intimidate believers into not being discerning and not contending for the faith. Part of contending for the faith is to expose error, or as Harry Ironside so aptly put it:

Truth mixed with error is equivalent to all error, except that it is more innocent looking and, therefore, more dangerous. God hates such a mixture! Any error, or any truth-and-error mixture, calls for definite exposure and repudiation. To condone such is to be unfaithful to God and His Word and treacherous to imperiled souls for whom Christ died.6

This story today about Roma Downey and her supporting Marianne Williamson is a perfect example of why names need to be named. Serious deception must be identified—not to villainize or hurt those promoting it but to warn those who are blindly walking into a dangerous trap. It is wrong for leaders who call themselves Christian to misrepresent the Lord whom they claim to serve, and it’s long overdue for some of them to start speaking up when the Gospel is being compromised.

False Revival Kick-Started by Francis Chan, Rodney Howard Browne, Benny Hinn, Bill Johnson, and Todd White

How do you start a true revival with key controversial NAR leaders—ask Francis Chan; he was there. Former pastor Francis Chan, who recently spoke at The Send conference in Florida with numerous NAR leaders such as Benny Hinn, Bill Johnson, Todd White, and Rodney Howard Browne, said in his own defense for sharing such a platform:

There are millions of souls that sit under weak or unorthodox teachings. . . . there are millions who will never hear strong biblical teaching unless teachers are willing to go. (source)

We find Chan’s rationale in these statements erroneous, troubling, and even dangerous.

photo: 2-second still shot from YouTube video from The Send 2019 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45jnVHmFefs)

Willing to Compromise

Chan isn’t the first person to say that his message is so important that he will share a platform with anyone in order to get his message out to the masses. To that frame of mind, we disagree completely. It’s one thing to preach the Gospel to lost souls; but to share a platform with those who are bringing dangerous false teachings into the church is to give credibility to those with the false teachings. From what we have witnessed, many Christian leaders are willing to compromise truth and integrity by giving credence to false teachers so their own messages can be broadcast more fully.

Revival or False Revival

There is a word that is being heralded by many Christian leaders today, and that word is—Revival! Whether its Lou Engle’s The Call, Bethel Church’s offspring Jesus Culture, Benny Hinn’s “prophecy” about revival in America, Rick Warren’s revival of unity, Rodney Howard’s “holy laughter” revival (as addressed in Warren B. Smith’s report False Revival Coming?: Holy Laughter or Strong Delusion?), or any number of revival calls taking place today within a growing apostate Christianity, the common denominator with most of these so-called revivalists is they are helping to bring in a false revival that is not based on God’s Word but is largely based on numinous experiences, man’s ambition, and Satan’s deception.

Threatening the Critics

Recently, as Lighthouse Trails reported, Francis Chan came out with a sermon where he said that God will destroy (kill) those who criticize or challenge Christian leaders. Our report stated:

Without giving specific names, Chan spoke of those who present any negative criticism of leaders (naming Rick Warren, Mark Driscoll, and John Piper as examples of leaders who should not be criticized). Chan took it a step further and described incidents in the Bible where God took people’s lives as in the case of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:10) to predict that God will take the lives of those who have negative things to say about the teachings of today’s spiritual leaders.

Perhaps Chan felt the need to say this to clear the way for his own journey into the arms of false teachers. Did he hope to silence critics who would specifically challenge him? It appears so.

A Most Serious Dangerous Implication

Lest some reading this still do not understand what the big deal is, consider this: At The Send conference, Rodney Howard Browne (i.e., “Mr. Holy Laughter”) came on stage and instructed the 40,000+ mostly young people at The Send to place one of their hands on their belly while raising the other in the air. He then called out for “holy” fire and anointing to descend upon all of them.

The Bible warns us in 2 Corinthians 11:4 that there is “another spirit” that is not the Holy Spirit. When you put all the excuses aside, the real question for Francis Chan is—are you comfortable with the fact that many of the people that came to Send 19 because of you suddenly found themselves in the forced position of being experientially led by someone like Rodney Howard Browne on how to activate the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues? What spirit was Browne imparting on these 40,000 people? Is it possible it was the same spirit and the same “anointing” that was present at the Toronto Blessing (which was essentially birthed by Browne with his “transferable anointing”). Mr. Chan, is  this your idea of what will bring true revival?

From our perspective, those who attended The Send because of Chan’s appearance were put in serious harm’s way. And we find it audacious that Chan now tries to excuse himself for being there (see the Christianity Today article). We see this as nothing less than a breach of trust that can have significant spiritual repercussions on countless people. Instead of warning Christians about spiritually deceptive teachings and spirits that falsely come in the name of the Lord, Chan has brought them right to the trough to drink these dangerous waters.

The Dark Road to Spiritual Deception

The dark but seemingly bright road into spiritual deception has many dangers and pitfalls. We think of Bunyan’s man Christian from Pilgrim’s Progress who came up against this as he fought Pride, Arrogancy, Self-Deceit, and Worldy Glory. While the hysteria of false revival is mounting up, many Christian leaders are working hard to justify their actions and their lack of spiritual discernment and responsibility and seem to be caving in to the snares that Bunyan’s Christian valiantly overcame.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. (2 Timothy 4:3)

We find it interesting that Francis Chan is insinuating in his statement,
“there are millions who will never hear strong biblical teaching unless teachers are willing to go” that his teachings are superior to the teachings of his co-platform teachers. We doubt that these co-teachers would agree with Chan that their own teachings are not “strong biblical teachings” but Chan’s are. It’s highly unlikely that Benny Hinn, Bill Johnson, Todd White, or Rodney Howard Browne would concede to saying that their teachings aren’t as biblical as Francis Chan’s. While Chan’s statement was an insult to the men who brought him into their fold, if Chan keeps on the path he is going, the difference between he and their teachings may eventually fade, and he may become just like them.

The Jeremiah Calling: Watching and Warning

By Roger Oakland
Understand the Times, International

The Bible provides a vast list of characters God has used to fulfill His plan on planet Earth. Few are more dynamic in the way they fulfilled their calling than Jeremiah, one of the prophets we read about in the Old Testament. Jeremiah’s ministry covered approximately forty years until a few years after Judah ceased to be a state in 586 BC.

As with other prophets that God raised up to speak and warn about the terrible apostasy that impacted Israel, Jeremiah was not popular. In fact, the task of a prophet of God is often characterized by loneliness and despair. No one wants to hear the bad news of the mandate that the prophet has been given to proclaim.

Jeremiah had no choice but to tell the truth, as this was his call. He knew it was the truth that would set sinners free. He was also aware that hiding the truth would bring further destruction. Jeremiah had compassion for those who were deceived but also had passion to let the deceived know there were consequences for turning away from God and serving other gods.
He also understood that history has a pattern of repeating itself. He knew what had happened in the past and what would occur when the children of Israel refused to hear God and His Word. He could see his colleagues and friends falling into the same trap. On one occasion, his passion is obvious from the words he spoke:

And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. (Jeremiah 11: 9-12)

The children of Israel were disobedient mostly because they did not trust God to keep His Word, and their unbelief led them to rebellion against God (Hebrews 3:17-19). God had already warned them. They knew what to expect if they chose other gods; but they went after those gods anyway. Further, they had placed their trust in man rather than in God. The writing was on the wall. Judgment was just around the corner. Jeremiah pleaded with his people. The leaders of Israel scoffed at him and attacked him personally. However, the Word of God explains that the gods the people worshiped did not prevent the Lord from judging them. The people were taken captive into Babylon just as God warned.

Painting of the prophet, Jeremiah

Jeremiah was a true prophet. He could not keep quiet. He had to speak. He was called by God and appointed to be a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5). While he was not always enthusiastic about what God had called him to do, his calling commanded him to speak with boldness and not to be afraid of those whom he was directed to warn (Jeremiah 1: 7-8).

Further, Jeremiah did not have to lay awake at night to think up what he was going to tell the leaders of Israel (Jeremiah 1:9). His message was not candy-coated. It was harsh. It was a message of warning. He was a watchman in a spiritual battle (chapters 1-45). He warned that sin would be judged and that leaders and their followers who were sinning would be exposed.

They and their sin were exposed. Sin will be judged whether it is covered up or not. The same is true of the past, the present, and the future.

Jeremiah’s message was not all negative. There was a positive side as well. He was called to build and to plant. When one plants, one has enlisted in the field of agriculture. This means that seeds are put in the soil with the faith there will be a crop and therefore a harvest. While most Bible expositors are good at pointing out that Jeremiah was good at exposing sin and error, not many actually see him as an evangelist. Jeremiah proclaimed the truth of the Gospel; he was a witness to the nations as well (Jeremiah chapters 46 – 52).

Warrior, Watchman, and Witness
The Jeremiah calling is still in place today. In other words, God still raises up watchmen to warn of impending judgment when God’s people are willfully disobedient. God is speaking to his people to be warriors for the truth. This does not mean to attack unbelievers and apostate deceivers with a sword. No. What this means is that we should be the kind of warriors who use the Word as the sword.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

While there are those who claim they do use the Word as they teach the Word, it is obvious this is not always true. Sometimes they use the Word of God in a way that advances their own false beliefs in order to gain power and control.

A warrior is one who is willing to lay down his or her life for the truth. This is what Jesus did. Few are willing to lay down their lives today and risk their lives to take a stand, whatever the cost. Few are willing to pick up their cross and follow Him. But Jesus told His disciples:

If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (Mathew 16:24)

Certainly, this does not mean that a person who chooses to follow Christ at all costs is perfect. As the Bible says, “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Only One gave His life so we can have eternal life. Only One is worthy. We must always be looking to Him and Him alone.

A watchman is someone always prepared to be on the wall looking toward the horizon to see if danger is coming. Sometimes those who are supposed to be watching have instead grown weary or aged and have fallen asleep. Others have been sidetracked by the cares of the world or the attraction of money, power, and possessions. They no longer see spiritual danger. This is very tragic indeed. Often when this happens, God will simply raise up other watchmen.

A witness is someone who will share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jeremiah laid the foundation for the Gospel by pointing the people of his day to God’s Word, which is the truth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is based on the truth, which is the Word of God; therefore, Jeremiah was a true witness for the Lord.

While fulfilling the role of a watchman in our present day will not bring popularity, according to the Bible, there is no other choice. While more and more pressure is put on pastors to conform to a reinvented form of Christianity that no longer uses God’s infallible Word as the foundation of faith, from God’s perspective, nothing has changed.

Throughout the world, mainstream and evangelical Christianity is headed down the road toward welcoming a global unified spirituality for the cause of peace. The warnings found in the Old and New Testaments have been set aside, and the sheep are following blindly. If the majority of pastors are not willing to stop what they are doing and stand up for the truth, God will raise up others to sound the alarm. While the last-days global delusion cannot be prevented (because Scripture says it is going to happen), God will raise up a remnant of believers who will be willing to sound the alarm no matter the cost.

 

Preparing for Perilous Times and Finding God’s Peace in the Midst of Them
Preparing for Perilous Times and Finding God’s Peace in the Midst of Them
By David Dombrowski

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and the trees of the field shall clap their hands. (Isaiah 55:12)

Over the last many years since Lighthouse Trails began, we have been contacted by many who love the Lord and were struggling with great challenges: Some were ostracized by their churches, which had gone Purpose Driven, contemplative, or emerging; some had division in their families; some had financial concerns; and others were worried about health issues—whether their own or that of loved ones. Beyond all of this, many have expressed a sense of uncertainty or foreboding of what the future will bring.

The Bible indicates that in the last days perilous times shall come. As it is becoming increasingly obvious, by all indications, that America is racing toward judgment, so too is the realization that something serious or catastrophic could easily come to our country, and we are unprepared. Whether it be nuclear attack, economic collapse, or natural disasters, America appears to be getting only closer to that day.

I know that for the average American (including the American Christian) the idea that mighty America could stumble and fall simply does not register. After all, how could a loving God bring calamity on a nation that has stood so tall for so long? But in considering this, we can see that it is not God who has rejected us but our nation that has continually rejected Him. A case in point is a pastor in a small Oregon town who shared with me how occasionally his church would be permitted to hold an assembly at the local public high school, but one day the mayor approached him and said, “If you even mention God at the assembly, I will have you out of here so fast . . .” But what is a pastor supposed to talk about if he cannot talk about God? Yet, what is even more grievous than our lost freedom is that so many churches have become apostate as they welcome immorality, mystical practices, and false doctrines while often viewing the atonement as outdated and dogmatic.

When judgment comes upon America, it will not be because of a hateful God entertaining Himself with calamity but rather because we, as a nation, have brought judgment upon ourselves. While this nation has a heritage of many who, through great personal sacrifice and a love for God, invited God into the affairs of our nation (and our nation has known prosperity and peace on all our borders) we forget that these blessings all came from God. Now that we have pushed God aside and booted Him out of the country, we have also booted out the blessings and protection we have long known.

None of us really knows what our nation will become if judgment befalls us, but frankly, I feel much more ominous about how corrupt and lawless it will become if God does not judge us. While the call to repentance has been going out for decades now, things have clearly only gotten worse. And while churches are beginning to muster up for national “repentance” and “revival,” God has already moved on to the next step. It is a true saying that those who have sown to the wind will only reap the whirlwind.

Unfortunately, there is much apathy when it comes to warnings of judgment or cataclysmic events. While many prosperity prophets tickle the ears of those who want a soft feel-good gospel, others, in contrast, give warnings of such horrendous proportions (even offering specific dates) of events that could annihilate vast portions of the planet; the net result is that many are being conditioned into indifference.

When perilous events will come, be it judgment or persecution, will we as Christians be ready for it? Such changes can come very rapidly and seemingly overnight; ask Anita Dittman or Diet Eman (Lighthouse Trails’ two Holocaust-survivor authors) if this is not true. They know; they saw it firsthand. Jesus said that men’s hearts will fail from fear of seeing the events happening around them (Luke 21:26). In Luke 21 and Matthew 24, Jesus gives a basic outline of the peril that will precede His return; He did not give specific calendar dates of what will happen, but He did teach us (as do the apostles and prophets) how we can be ready to face the future.

I’m sure we have all seen the ill effects that fear and worry can have on a person’s life, both spiritually and physically. Fear and worry, over an extended period of time, stagnates one spiritually, cripples one emotionally, and breaks one down physically. The enemy (Satan) uses fear whenever possible to thwart the progress of Christians and to promote his agenda. Whole societies have been controlled through fear. When we consider what happened in Nazi Germany, it’s true that great numbers were mesmerized by a charismatic leader with a demonic anointing, but overall he was able to rule the country through fear. Today, we already see the reemergence of fear and intimidation where fundamental Christianity is marginalized, if not villainized, while immorality and corruption is given special sanctions and promotion.

How can a Christian believer stand under this kind of pressure we see today? Fear is already at work eroding the values we have long held sacred. In many churches, just the pressure to remain popular or contemporary is enough to introduce Yoga and mind-altering meditation (formerly called an occultic practice but today repackaged as “contemplative prayer”) into our churches.

Will the Christians who are still holding back from this landslide of compromised Christianity eventually cower and be absorbed into the system? Will we, like Judas, proceed to give Jesus a kiss while undermining everything He taught? Or, will we, like Peter, deny that we even know Him? The fact is Jesus is being betrayed and denied on a massive scale today by proclaiming Christians through their embracing of contemplative spirituality and the emerging church, which has an underlying message of rejecting the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ. It’s the worst kind of betrayal.

Fear is not something you can merely put the brakes on – like pressing a pedal in your car. Peter, who so adamantly insisted to Jesus that he would never deny Him even unto death did so three times in the course of one night. How then does one stem the tide of fear (and worry) in his own life?

Over a period of three years, Jesus taught His disciples how to live without being overcome by fear and worry. On one occasion, He told them:

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 6:28-30)

Jesus said all of this after having just said, “Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment. . . . Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?” (Matthew 6:25, 27).

Now let me explain what I believe Jesus meant and did not mean by these passages. First of all, in saying what He did about taking no thought for our lives, I do not think Jesus was advocating for personal neglect or for unpreparedness. On a personal note, Deborah and I have always been advocates for preparedness. Let me give an example. Back in 1999, we helped organize the Y2K task force in our hometown. During that year, we helped many families in our community learn how to be prepared for disaster (not just Y2K). Then, when nothing significant happened on New Year’s Day, some mocked what we had done. I heard one well-known Christian leader say, after the fact, on his radio program that he had known all along that nothing was going to happen, and that those who had prepared were a bunch of idiots. As I listened to him speak, I wondered why during the year prior, when technical experts and those considered computer savvy were giving out warnings about computer crashes, that this leader with a public forum had not raised a voice to counter the efforts at preparedness. Be it as it may, our involvement with Y2K was not really about a catastrophe happening on a specific calendar date, but for us it was a wake-up call in realizing that our society has become so dependent on the local supermarket and our power grid that most would have scarcely enough food, water, and fuel to last only a few days even in a small-scale crisis. A case in point happened in a town I was in when some teenagers were seen playing around the city-water site. The authorities then became concerned that the water could have been tampered with and instructed the townspeople not to drink, cook, or bathe in that water until it was tested. Needless to say, the bottled water in the grocery stores disappeared from the shelves by that afternoon. And this was not even a big scare, and the water proved to be safe.

Jesus’ words about the lilies of the field were a much-needed exhortation to trust God in all aspects of our lives. At the same time, however, Jesus was talking to an agrarian people who knew and practiced preparedness as they utilized their skills in growing and properly storing food for the winter. If this were not true, Solomon would not have praised the ordinary ant in saying, “consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest” (Proverbs 6:6-8).

If you have followed our ministry for any length of time, then you know that we have never yet talked about preparedness. Yet in by-gone days, it used to be a very normal task for people to cut firewood, tend the livestock, and plant or harvest the fields; so while it is not my intention to get into a lengthy discussion on the practical matters of life, let me say in passing that it would not hurt to consider the situations in which we live. While many of us may be locked into situations or locations that make change nearly impossible, it doesn’t hurt, if you have the opportunity, to consider what would be best for you and your family in the future. Especially if you live in a highly populated city, it does not take much imagination to think of the crime and looting that could ensue after a serious power failure or disaster.

Now, having said all this, let’s return to the words of Jesus when He said that we should take no thought for our lives. The fact is, we are only as safe as the Lord enables us to be. Hence, regardless of our situation in life, our only real option for safety is to place our lives and our futures in the hands of the Lord. While it would be wise to make whatever practical measures we can for the future, none of us are immune from disaster, loss, or theft. To be truly prepared to face the future means above all to be spiritually prepared—and that means having a right relationship with the Lord.

Now is the time for Christians to “lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1). In other words, like the athlete set out to run a race, we need to strip off any excess baggage that would hinder us from giving the Lord our very best. God’s overwhelming desire for us is that we walk with Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength (Mark 12:30).

I would like to finish with some thoughts about what it means to walk in God’s peace.

First of all, let me say that just as the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16), it is also the avenue to peace with God: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

All of us who have entered into union with God through believing the Gospel—namely that Jesus purchased our salvation fully through His death on the Cross—have God’s peace available to us. Today, it seems that many proclaiming Christians do not really have a sense of God’s peace (which I believe is why so many are turning to contemplative prayer and other mystical practices), and I am fully persuaded it is because they have become removed from the simplicity of the Gospel. The modern-day church leadership has left today’s Christian with a sense of insufficiency of the Gospel and has instead presented an array of substitutes to include such things as relaxation exercises, breath prayers, lectio divina, yoga, and contemplative prayer all with an empty promise of delivering peace and God’s presence when in fact the Gospel is all sufficient for that purpose. Through the Gospel, Jesus opened the door of salvation, promising to live (abide) in us:  “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you” (Colossians 1:27) and “hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us” (1 John 3:24).

As we live by faith, we will enjoy the benefits of God’s peace. And as I mentioned earlier, when Jesus pointed out that we should take no thought for our lives, He indicated that our lives should be free of fear and worry. God wants us to strive for this goal and attain it as well. Jesus then ended His statements with the clause, “O ye of little faith” (Matthew 6:30). In other words, our freedom from fear and worry are only available to us as we allow our faith and trust in the Lord to grow. A perfect example of this is where Jesus, while walking on the water, welcomed Peter to come out and meet Him. Peter, whose life was a mixture of self-confidence and faith, was OK as long as he kept his eyes on Jesus, but as he turned his eyes to the wind and the waves, that confidence soon left him. It was the same self-confidence that led him to tell Jesus that he would never deny Him only to be dashed later, causing him to weep bitterly. But it was a good thing for Peter that his self-confidence was so utterly dashed because he was later able to become a great hero of the faith as he found he had abundant and sufficient grace through Christ (even to the point where he was able to go to his death for the sake of Christ) as he put his confidence in Jesus alone. In this one illustration of meeting Jesus on the water, we find the secret of faith that enabled Peter to walk in an abiding peace. Isaiah was inspired by this same kind of faith when he penned the words:

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)

In closing, if we can make ready for the future in practical ways, it would be good to do so. But, above all, we must not neglect spiritual preparedness. We will all need spiritual strength (that only God can give) to face the future. That means drawing strength from God by reading His Word. Then, it means applying that Word to our lives. My prayer is that the words of Scripture, like that from Isaiah 26 above, will be a reality for you and I; but this can only happen as we forsake the phony comforts of this life and trust the Lord to be our strength. Yes, walking through this life can be heartbreaking and terrifying at times, but as we keep our mind stayed on Him, trusting Him, we can walk forward in His peace.

The Bible says that those who trust the Lord shall not be disappointed (Psalm 34:22). As we watch the world falling apart, there really is no other option than to trust the Lord; thus, may our resolve be to trust Him as fully as we can, even though things will not always go the way we want or hope for; but we can be comforted and assured in knowing that for those who “love God” and are “called according to His purpose,” “all things work together for good” (Romans 8:28). God has His best intentions in mind for us, and He will not be prevented from accomplishing it. One thing that can give us a sense of stability and peace of mind is knowing that even though God allows evil to happen in the world, when we are “sealed” in Christ, He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5: 1-2

Donating to Lighthouse Trails

SUPPORTING LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS: For those who would like to support Lighthouse Trails, we always appreciate both your prayers and your giving. And for those who have faithfully done that over the years, we thank you with all of our hearts. We know that some people may have the impression that Lighthouse Trails does quite well financially because we sell products that we publish and because our resources have had such a far reach; but, the truth is, it takes everything made through sales to keep Lighthouse Trails operating. Publishing, at least for small presses such as ours, is rarely a high-profit business. It would take a best seller to see that, one that the masses of people love. And because we are not just a business, but even more so a ministry, we keep our prices as low as we can, give away many resources, and have also made much of our material available for free on the research site and blog. That's not how big corporations run things as that would hurt the bottom line (profit), but we see the needs out there, and we trust God to keep us going as long as He sees fit.

We thank you in advance for seeing the value in a ministry like Lighthouse Trails and coming along side us with your prayers and support.

It is our prayer that we will faithfully be humble servants of the Lord’s work for years to come should the Lord tarry.
