The Restrainer...Restrains!

By Alan Yusko

Currently the devil and his antichrist are being restrained. Satan cannot bring to power his antichrist at this moment because he is under restraint. God is restraining evil which prevents the devil from unleashing horrible wickedness upon planet earth until the right time.

However, the day is coming when the restraint will be removed. God will no longer restrain evil and the devil will have a free hand to 'do his worst' within God's allotted time frame.

There are problems with people in their understanding of Bible prophecy. Some just don't understand God's restraining of evil. In this article we will look at the Biblical details of God's restraint and the time when this restraint is removed.

Below is the verse in 2nd Thessalonians that describes the restrainer who is currently holding back the devil's antichrist.

2 Thess 2 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Let's look at the greek meaning of some of the words that describes the restrainer. First look at verse 6 above and see the word: "withholdeth". Here is the meaning of that word:

verse 6 withholdeth
2722 katecho {kat-ekh'-o}
from 2596 and 2192; TDNT - 2:829,286; v
AV - hold 3, hold fast 3, keep 2, possess 2, stay 1, take 1, have 1, make 1, misc 5; 19 1) to hold back, detain, retain 1a) from going away 1b) to restrain, hinder (the course or progress of)
1b1) that which hinders, Antichrist from making his appearance 1b2) to check a ship's headway i.e. to hold or head the ship 1c) to hold fast, keep secure, keep firm possession of
2) to get possession of, take 2b) to possess

Satan and his antichrist are currently being restrained. At this time the devil cannot bring to power his antichrist beast. He must wait until the time that the restraint is removed. Verse 7 mentions that there is coming a time when HE (the restrainer) will be taken away or removed. At that time verse 8 will be fulfilled and the devil will have the freedom to bring to power his antichrist.

Next look in verse 7 at the word 'letteth' to see what that means.

verse 7 letteth
2722 katecho {kat-ekh'-o}
from 2596 and 2192; TDNT - 2:829,286; v AV - hold 3, hold fast 3,
keep 2, possess 2, stay 1, take 1, have 1, make 1, misc 5; 19 1) to hold back, detain, retain 1a) from going away
1b) to restrain, hinder (the course or progress of)
1b1) that which hinders, Antichrist from making his appearance 1b2) to check a ship's headway i.e. to hold or head the ship 1c) to hold fast, keep secure, keep firm possession of
2) to get possession of, take 2b) to possess

The only Person in heaven and earth who is powerful enough to restrain the devil and his demons is God Himself. More specifically, God the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity is the restrainer.

However, this can be very confusing to some. How can God the Holy Spirit be the restrainer and be removed or taken away? How can an omnipresent person be removed. Some people who teach the pre-trib rapture make the mistake of saying that the Holy Spirit will be removed from planet earth at the rapture. Again, how can an omnipresent person be removed?

The answer is this: He cannot! Before the rapture and after the rapture God's Holy Spirit will be present on earth. But the restrainer will be removed. Here is how this will be done.

The Lord Jesus told His disciples the following:

Acts 1
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

The Holy Spirit has been present on the earth since the beginning of time. He will continue to be omnipresent throughout all eternity. However, in the Old Testament days the Holy Spirit only came upon men as God desired. Plus such a man could lose the anointing and blessing of the Holy Spirit. King Saul was one such a man. God's Holy Spirit was upon King Saul in his early days. But later after he fell far away from God, the Holy Spirit left him. King David was another person filled and anointed with God's Holy Spirit.

The difference between the Old Testament saints and the saints today is the fact that in the New Testament Church, the Holy Spirit will never leave a believer. All God's people are forever sealed by God's Holy Spirit and He will never leave or forsake them. Here is what the Bible says:

Eph 1
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Eph 4
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

The next thought is this: When did the Holy Spirit come upon the believers to seal and indwell them?

The answer is at Pentecost. Here are the verses that describe the day the Church was born and when believers were filled with God's Holy Spirit.

Acts 2
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

From this point on when a person is saved they are filled with God's Holy Spirit and they become part of God's blood bought Church. This will be true until the Church is raptured to heaven.

With this in mind let's consider how the Holy Spirit works in and through each member of God's Church. Consider this, Christians are the salt of the earth.


Here are the verses that describes how believers are the salt of the earth:

Matt 5
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

What does salt do? It is used to retard corruption. Meat can be salted to retard corruption and to preserve the meat. In the above verse believers are called the salt of the earth. Because God's Holy Spirit works in and through each believer, they become the salt of the earth. This is how God the Holy Spirit restrains evil and keeps the devil and the antichrist from their full manifestation until the desired time.

Here is another characteristic of the believer who is the salt of the earth:

Rev 1
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Each born-again believer is a king and priest before the Lord. This means believers have authority here on earth. They literally have the "ear" of God as they pray and make supplications.

James 5
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Christians are the salt of the earth. As they go through life it is very natural to be in constant prayer to God as needs are identified. As Christians see evil, they pray. All this adds up to a massive restraining influence of evil in the world. All the members of God's blood bought Church throughout the world can use their position of kings and priests to pray to the Lord. This alone is a major restraint to evil as God hears the prayers of His people.

In light of all this, let's get back to our main verses about the restrainer which is preventing the antichrist from rising to power:

2 Thess 2
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Again notice in verse 7 and 8 that once the restraint is removed, the devil will be free to reveal his antichrist.

At the rapture the Church, God's restraint working in and through the saints will be removed from earth and taken to heaven. The Holy Spirit will still be here as He is an omnipresent being. At the rapture the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit working in and through God's blood bought Church will be removed. The Holy Spirit will no longer be restraining evil as the Church will not be on earth. This removal of the restrainer allows the devil to bring his man of sin (the antichrist) to power to fulfill all the last days prophecies.

So the restrainer, I believe, is the Holy Spirit working in and through God's blood bought Church. This restraint was created after the resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus at Pentecost. At that time the Church was born as God the Holy Spirit came upon all the believers to forever seal and indwell them. The restraint is removed from earth at the rapture. At that time God's Church is raptured to heaven and the restraint on evil is removed. The Holy Spirit will still be present but the restraint of Him working in and through God's blood bought church will be removed.


Still people are confused about the restrainer. Some teach that there will be no major troubles in North America until after the rapture. This is not necessarily true. Judgment could fall on God rejecting North America right now and it would not hurt Bible prophecy one bit.

Also, for almost 2000 years now the Church has suffered persecution and even death. For example, the Catholic church in the middle age inquisition killed millions of saved Christians. China, Russia, the Congo, and Muslim countries have also currently and historically killed and persecuted Christians.

It is very possible that horrible things can happen to North America before the rapture. In fact we know in prophecy that such a current great world leader like America is not even mentioned. Right now America is a world leader, yet in Bible prophecy there is no mention of the power of the world being in America. This means America will either be destroyed or greatly weakened in the coming days. Plus the people in North America are thumbing their noses at God with all the abominations of homosexuality, baby murders etc. One day, and maybe soon, God will bring massive judgments on this proud and godless people. We can hope that these judgments will occur after the rapture but there is really no guarantees.

The only thing we are really assured of is that the antichrist cannot come to power until after the restrainer is removed.

Some argue that the removal of the restrainer is not the rapture but rather it is the Holy Spirit simply stopping to restrain evil. It is like a light switch. Today the Holy Spirit has been restraining the devil but the day is coming when He will simply stop doing so. Again, that doesn't make sense with the verses in 2 Thess 2:6-8. Verse 7 indicates the restrainer will be taken out of the way and not simply shut off and cease restraining one day. Plus, when one considers the fact that the Church is the salt of the earth and they have a ministry of kings and priests before the Lord, it just doesn't make sense that the Holy Spirit will simply stop restraining one day. The restraining power of a born-again, Holy Spirit filled believer who is a king and priest before the Lord is very great in this godless world!

Another consideration is after the antichrist comes to power, how long will it take him to consolidate his power and sign the covenant of death with the nation of Israel. Some speculate that could take many months to a year or more. The major task would be in deceiving the Jewish leaders that the antichrist is their Messiah. However, don't forget that in those days there will not be any restraint on evil and the devil will have free reign. Plus, the world will be exposed to all kinds of lying miracles and Satanic wonders. Demons pretending to be friendly space aliens will be openly seen and they will fool the world as they make their crazy claims and lies. As a result the time frame may not be too long with no restraint on evil for the antichrist to convince, deceive, and consolidate his power.


God's Holy Spirit is currently working in and through the Church to restrain evil, the devil, and the antichrist. This restraint prevents the fulfillment of end time prophecies until the right time. The restraint of the Holy Spirit working in and through His Church started at Pentecost and it ends at the rapture. When the Church is raptured to heaven, the restraint of the Holy Spirit will be ended. The Holy Spirit will still be present as He is omnipresent. However, God's blood bought Church will be in heaven and there will no longer be any restraint on evil. In those days the devil will have full reign on earth. He will perform many lying signs and deceiving wonders to lead the people of earth astray. With the restraint on evil gone, demons will openly manifest themselves to the world using the current lie setup of UFO's and friendly space beings. UFO's are nothing more than a manifestation of Satan and his demons. For years the people of the world have been programmed to accept and receive "friendly" space aliens come to help the human race. In reality these aliens are just demons! After God removes His restraint, there will be very evil and deceiving days on earth! Satan will be free to bring to power the antichrist beast and his false prophet.

The last days prophecies will move ahead very quickly as there will be no restraint on evil in those days. The antichrist will completely deceive the Jews of Israel that he is their Messiah and will sign the seven year covenant of death with them. This will start the final seven years of Daniel's prophecy.

Right now we are living in the days before the antichrist will rise to power. The world leaders and powers-that-be are fervently working at setting up the kingdom of the antichrist. They look forward to the day when their "Christ" (or the antichrist) will be revealed and brought to power. But just like Satan, they are restrained until the time is right. After the rapture, the restrainer will be removed and Satan and all his servants will be free to fulfill their evil plans.

As we can see the early setups of the kingdom of the antichrist, the rapture cannot be far away. All the end time prophecies are lining up as are some of the seal judgments in the book of revelation. All the timing belongs to the Lord, but things seem to be moving at a fast pace. Soon and in God's time, the rapture will occur which will take from the earth God's restraint. We are now living in very prophetic days and soon the Lord will return!

Luke 21
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh

Rev 22
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Serving Satan instead of God

By Alan Yusko

In the world today there are many who claim to be Christian but are not. These people reject sound Biblical doctrine. They rejoice in compromise and unity with false churches and false teachers. Another word for such a person is a tare in the wheatfield.

2 Tim 4
3 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;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Little do they realize that they are really serving the devil instead of the Lord! Another characteristic of the tare is that they hate the light. This means they really hate the Bible and God's blood bought people. Sound Biblical doctrine makes these people very angry and upset. On the one hand the tare claims to believe the Bible but in reality he rejects sound Biblical teaching and doctrine.

John 3
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Tares not only reject the light of God's Word, they hate it. Instead verse 20 indicates they love their evil sinful deeds. Along with hating God's Word, these tares also hate God's people.


Tares love the occult and witchcraft. They attack, mock, and reject any who would warn about their occult pleasures. These people are totally immune to the Word of God and will not listen to any warnings from the Bible. For example the below verses will have no effect whatsoever on a tare:

Deut 18
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.


Tares also love their Satanic rock and roll music. This evil music has so much Satanic power and blessing that it is highly addictive. It is like drugs. Once hooked the person cannot get enough of this evil music. Tares have also succeeded in bringing in this evil music to attack and curse God's Church. Be warned, any pastor or church goer who is damaging God's people with this evil music will be brought to account before the Lord.

Like the occult, the tares love their sins of rock music. They also love the evil fruit of rock music which includes: sexual immorality, drug use, drunkenness, blasphemy, occultism, sodomy, rebellion, and worldly compromise. Always remember the tare loves the darkness and hates the light.

The rock and roller is also immune to the Bible. They want no part of separation from the world. Instead they enjoy wallowing in the filth of rock music just as a pig enjoys his mud. The addicted rock and roller is also immune to the Bible. They want no part of the Bible that warns of the worldly compromise of rock music.

Titus 1
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate

1 John 2
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.


Tares love to unite with false religions. Since they have no heart for sound Biblical doctrine, they wish to have one big super church composed of many who profess a belief in "God". These tares seek to reject the reformation that broke away from the multitudes of false teachings from the Catholic church. The goal of the tare is the exact opposite. They seek to unite as one with the Catholic church and any others that have an openness to their doctrineless form of unity. This is why groups like the Promise Keepers or the current Alpha Course is so popular.

As the world heads into the kingdom of the antichrist these tares will get their wish. There will be formed a world-wide false church composed of all false religions. Everyone who rejects Biblical truth will be a part of this world church under the antichrist. The very climax will be when the antichrist gives out the mark of the beast and demands all to worship him. Those who refuse his mark of the beast will be hunted and killed.

Rev 13
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.


As we near the end of the age and the rise of antichrist the days will get very evil. Right now we are in the midst of a great apostasy and rejection of the Christian faith.

2 Thess 2
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

I've noticed that in these days the tares are coming into full bloom! Everyone who can fall away from the Lord is doing so. People are making choices and the tares are openly choosing to reject the things of God.

Those who are tares are in love with their sin and rebellion. They will openly attack and mock God's people as they seek to justify their worldly compromise and love of darkness.

1 Tim 4
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Of course the tares speak backwards! They accuse God's people of serving Satan while justifying their love of darkness and compromise. These tares will be here after the rapture of the Church and they will run eagerly into the arms of the antichrist! Don't forget, those evil days of the antichrist are coming upon the world very quickly!


by Alan Yusko

When people reject God at some time God gives them over to a reprobate mind. People and nations must make choices. Sadly in these days the majority of people have chosen to reject the Lord Jesus. The light and truth of the Lord is rejected while the sinful darkness of the devil is accepted. At some point God will give a sin loving, God rejecting person over to a reprobate mind. Here is some Scripture that shows that truth:

Rom 1
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

As you can see people can be given over to a reprobate mind. Once reprobate a person can no longer discern good from evil from God's viewpoint. Each person defines "good" in such a manner that it suits his purposes and love of sin. In fact a man's morality will dictate his theology. Such a reprobate will accept a religion compatible with his sinful lifestyle.

When many reprobates are in society several will be involved in public office. These reprobate godless leaders will pass evil laws that they will call "good", "fair", and "tolerant". Right now there is a major push to completely legalize the sin of sodomy. In fact this push also involves proclaiming the Bible to be "hate" literature. This is done because the Bible condemns the sin of sodomy and calls it an abomination to God. Since the reprobate hates God and the truth of His Word, laws are passed against the Bible. This is really where we are heading! The sin loving godless country of Canada has already done this. Over time those evil laws will be strengthened and Christians will one day be imprisoned or killed. The extreme end will occur under the reign of the antichrist where it will be a capital offense to believe or own a Bible. Right now we are seeing setups for those soon coming days!

Another offspring from those with reprobate minds are evil toys. Below is such an example of a perverted doll soon to be released. Remember God is not mocked. His Divine judgment will fall upon a godless sin loving society. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah as an example to anyone who would dare to do the same sins in future. Today people are laughing and mocking God as they openly flaunt the sins that brought down the judgment of God upon Sodom and Gomorrah. Sadly, judgment is coming and it may not be too far in the future!


July 11, 2004 -- Barbie's new surfer boyfriend Blaine had better look out.

He's about to meet his match - but the love rival isn't a man, it's another woman. And she's a New Yorker.

"Bobbie Doll" goes on sale this week as the world's first lesbian action figure in an edgy new toy series called DYKEdolls.

With her leather jacket, muscle T-shirt, tattoo and downtown attitude, 12-inch-high Bobbie is poised to take the doll world by storm.

And her New York creator cheekily believes she might even "catch the eye" of her West Coast plastic counterpart - the ultimate California girl, Barbie, who recently dumped her longtime love, Ken.

"He won't treat her right," DYKEdolls creator and East Village resident Stephanie Prod says of Blaine, tongue firmly in cheek.

"He won't know what women want - but Bobbie does," she adds.

But don't expect to see these Sapphic playthings at your toy store anytime soon. The DYKEdoll figures, which will sell for $49.95 apiece, are aimed at adults. Only buyers over 21 can get the $65 package, which includes "accessories": tiny leather harnesses and miniature vibrators.

Bobbie - or Bobbie Rockerbilly DYKEdoll, to give her full title - will launch on the Internet ( Friday along with her "Butch Series" lesbian friends, Doc Holliday and Williamsburg Dyke.

Doc sports cowgirl gear and is named after the Doc Holliday's Western-style bar on Avenue A that attracts many lesbians who favor the Texas look. Williamsburg, or Diesel, wears a cutoff gasoline shirt and low-slung jeans.

The 36-year-old software designer got the idea for her dolls when writing her master's thesis at NYU last year about lesbians' underrepresentation in popular culture.

Here are a few verses related to this topic of the acceptance of sodomy and the coming judgments of the Lord:

Jude 7
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner giving themselves over to FORNICATION, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2 Peter 2
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;


by Alan Yusko

In the last years the veil has been pulled back on the Roman Catholic church. Many priests have been charged with sexually molesting those in their parish. Some have been charged and jailed while most have just been transferred to a parish elsewhere with the hopes that it will not happen again. Sadly, it does, again and again!

As you may have heard, one of the requirements for a priest in the church of Rome is that he abstain from sexual relations. In reality this is not done but the requirement is still part of the priesthood. The Bible however, says that forbidding a person to marry is a doctrine of devils. See the verses below:

1 Tim 4
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

As you can see what Romanism teaches is contrary to what the Bible says. God allows men to marry and calls those who forbid marriage a doctrine of devils. The same God who created man certainly knows the heart of man. When God's ways are rejected, disastrous results follow. Below is one of many examples of rampant sin as a result of those who have been forbidden to have sexual relations in the Roman Church. Here is an article that describes more foolishness from Romanism:

Priests 'in orgy' at seminary

Roman Catholic leaders in Austria called an emergency meeting today after officials discovered a vast cache of photos and videos allegedly depicting young priests having sex at a seminary.

About 40,000 photographs and an undisclosed number of films, including child pornography, were downloaded on computers at the seminary in St Poelten, about 50 miles west of Vienna, the respected news magazine Profil reported.

Officials with the local diocese declined to comment but were meeting privately on the scandal, Austrian state television reported.

It said the seminary's director, the Rev Ulrich Kuechl, and his deputy, Wolfgang Rothe, had resigned.

The Austrian Bishops Conference issued a statement today pledging a full and swift investigation.

"Anything that has to do with homosexuality or pornography has no place at a seminary for priests," it said.

Church officials discovered the material on a computer at the seminary, Profil said. It published several images purportedly showing young priests and their instructors kissing and fondling each other and engaging in orgies and sex games. ...continued...

Today's teenagers are really a sad lot. Many are simply sex craved kids obsessed with their rock and roll music. Others are druggies who are blasting out their brain cells. They have been raised in godless homes with godless and reprobate parents who want nothing to do with the Lord. Sadly, most kids do not know the difference between Noah and Moses in the Bible. Others don't even know about Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden!

Are lost people happy? Can they handle the stresses and problems of life? The answer is no they cannot. The Christian has the advantage as the Lord walks close to His people. A Christian still hurts, goes through painful trials, and suffers in this evil world. But the Lord is their God and helper in times of trouble. The wicked do not share this blessing as they are all alone. Here is what the Bible says:

Isaiah 48
22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

As a result many lost, hellbound kids and adults have trouble coping with the pains, stresses, and trials of this life. I have seen lost people lose loved ones and been unable to cope with the separation. They have no hope, they have no peace, and they have no comfort.

Below is a sad trend about how some lost teens are dealing with stress. Rather than casting their care upon the Lord like a Christian does, these teens cope in other ways. Sadly, some of these ways are very destructive and painful.

These people need the Lord Jesus but sadly we live in a day when most reject Him. They want no part of salvation and eternal life in heaven. Instead, lost people would rather enjoy their sins of sexual immorality, rock music, occultism etc. It is no surprise some cannot cope! Here is the very sad article:

Teens Doing Self-Mutilation to Deal With Stress

One in four young girls do something to their bodies called self-mutilation
By Jackelyn Barnard First Coast News

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- It's a disturbing new trend in teens. One in four young girls do something to their bodies called self-mutilation.

In 19-year-old Esther Maassen's case, a razor blade, basically anything sharp is what she would use on her feet.

"Anything sharp so I could see myself bleed," she says.

Why she does it may surprise you.

"A lot of people don't get it. They drink when they get upset or something. We cut."

It's not a suicide attempt but an addiction. Those who do it say it helps to relieve stress.

"It wasn't the children you would suspect," says mom and Jacksonville school teacher, Kathi Wedner. She has seen first hand kids who cut. Wedner saw her own students doing it, but she says she never suspected her own daughter.

"She cut a design into her wrist. It was sadness. It was guilt. It was shock. I wanted very desperately to help her."

Girls are more likely than boys to self-mutilate. Middle to high school aged girls are the most at risk. Duval County school psychologist, Dr. David Chesire, says he's heard of a child as young as six-years-old cutting their body. "It's very secretive and these kids do anything they can to hide the fact they have been engaged in these behaviors and those close to them have no idea it's happening."

It's an addiction that leaves kids with scars from their arms to their chests. It's an addiction Esther Maassen is still fighting. "It's the only thing that sometimes can calm me down and it becomes really addictive and I'm still trapped into it."

Signs parents need to look for: unexplained cuts and scratches that never seem to heal; cuts and scratches paired with signs of depression or low self-esteem; kids who wear long, baggy clothing in the summer to cover up their bodies.

These people need the Lord Jesus but they will not come! Yet the offer is still given!

Matt 11
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Judgment Starting for anti-Bible, gay loving Canada?

by Alan Yusko

Canada has been the leader even over the USA in turning their back on God while loving and flaunting evil and sin. Canada was the leader in same-sex marriages and in passing laws that declare the Bible is hate literature where it speaks of sodomy.

In days past, the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha for their sins of sodomy. He strictly warns that the same fate lies ahead for nations in future that do the same! Sodom and Gomorrha were just an example for people not to do the same sins. Here is what the Bible says:

2 Pet 2
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

Judgment will certainly fall by God's method and in God's time! When God's judgment comes it will happen very suddenly and the destruction will be complete! The only thing that can stop this impending Divine judgment is for the people to repent and turn from their sin. Will this happen in either the USA or Canada? I would say NO, no, no! The people are way to proud and in love with their sin, rejection of God, and love of rebellion to the Lord! People will not humble themselves before the Lord and turn from their love of sin and evil. Therefore, judgment is coming. Both Canada and the USA are bringing the day closer as they provoke the Lord with their increasing love of evil.

Below is an article that describes very "weird" weather affecting Canada. To some it is just a fluke of nature. But watch for disasters to hit Canada (and the USA who is not far behind) again and again! Judgment is coming! Remember the example of Sodom and Gomorrha!

Canada's weather has gone completely topsy-turvy

Canada's weather has gone completely topsy-turvy, said an Environment Canada expert.

The evidence:

It's hot and dry in B.C. and the Yukon
Heavy downpours flood Edmonton
Grande Prairie, Alta. was hit by a funnel cloud
Some places in the Arctic have been warmer than Toronto on some days
The East, which should be sweltering, is cool; Ontario has had the smallest number of forest fires in decades
"It's almost like the weather is upside down," said Dave Phillips in Toronto.
"The explanation is we're seeing a lot more Canadian air, northerly air over the country."

There is a cold low-pressure system that just won't budge, he said. "Its sort of like an unwanted house guest, its just staying around too long."

For farmer Edward Preston, the weird weather is hitting him in the pocketbook. "the bigger ones, what you call the eggs of the berries, aren't there this year," he said, displaying a few scrawny strawberries.

"There's been no hot heat for the berries," he said.

The last time Canadian weather was this wacky was 1992, when the world's weather patterns were disrupted by the explosion of a volcano. ...continued...

As you can see weather is not normal right now in Canada. Here is a description of a freak storm that hit a Canadian city:

Edmonton storm tab: Tens of millions Storm strands hundreds of shoppers
Jul. 12, 2004. 04:45 PM

`I have never seen anything like this'


EDMONTON - Damage was estimated in the tens of millions of dollars today, the day after a severe hailstorm flooded hundreds of homes and parts of Canada's largest shopping complex - West Edmonton Mall. Under a bright blue sky, the cleanup continued throughout the city in the wake of a deluge that swamped roads, basements and cars with up to 150 millimetres of rain. Environment Canada officials called it "a one in 200-year storm."

Shop employees used vacuums and squeegees to clean up their stores as the mall opened for business only 18 hours after thousands of people were evacuated because of the torrent. ...continued...

Stormy weather also spawned funnel clouds north of the city and a tornado to the east that tore roofs off buildings.

Sunday's storm was the latest chapter in what has become northern Alberta's summer of soggy misery.

Heavy rains have saturated Edmonton for more than a week and in northern Alberta spawned a tornado that damaged buildings in downtown Grande Prairie Thursday. /Article_Type1&c=Article&cid=1089583810173&call_pageid=968332188774&col=968350116467

When God judges He will send many warning judgments. People can repent and turn from their evil ways. Yet Canada is a proud, godless, and prosperous people. Will they humble themselves and repent of their sin? I would say No they will not. Therefore, just watch as more and more judgments hit the land of Canada. One day of God's choosing, there will be a massive judgment similar in scale to what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah!
