What if you wake up one morning to discover that millions of people have disappeared? Or worse, it has already happened when you find this post?

Sounds like science fiction? Well, it's actually (as of the time I am writing this post) future Biblical prophesy: The Rapture. We haven't been taken by aliens, we've been taken by Jesus.

Governments around the world will undoubtedly be trying to convince the world that an alien abduction, or some other non-Biblical cause, has occurred. Information like this post will be labeled as false or misinformation, and could cause this blog and other websites like it to be taken down from the Internet.

If you would like to know more about future history, check out my friend Ken Power's book The End of the Beginning. It's freely available on the Internet for anyone to read or download. I pray that it will show you that you are a sinner in need of Jesus, and that if you find it after The Rapture, that you will know what must come to pass so that you are not deceived.

I've also shadowed a downloadable copy in case his website is taken down before mine...

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.

Psalm 127:3 (NASB)

Let this be an exercise to the reader. May the Lord show you the meaning from His word.

  • Children are a gift from God
    • Psalm 127:3-5
  • A warning from Jesus
    • Matthew 18:1-11
    • Mark 9:33-48
    • Luke 9:46-48
  • Do not hinder children from coming to Jesus
    • Matthew 19:13-15
    • Mark 10:13-16
    • Luke 18:15-17
  • The Lord knew Jeremiah before he was born
    • Jeremiah 1:5a

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...

Jeremiah 1:5a (NASB)

On Daves Vintage Apple Tech's last Sunday livestream, Sean (of Geek With Social Skills) asked everybody on the livestream about the first concert they attended: The first concert I remember attending was DC Talk's Jesus Freak tour when they performed at Liberty University's Vines Center.

All week, I have been pondering the chorus of the title track of the Jesus Freak album:

What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
What will people do when they find that it's true?
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak.
There ain't no disguisin' the truth.

I am one of these "Jesus Freaks"; I've been a Christian ever since the early 90s. I believe that I am a sinner from birth, and that on my own there is no way I can get to Heaven - in fact, if left to my own devices, I would be headed to Hell for eternity to pay for the wages of my sins. I believe that Jesus, fully God and fully man, died on a cross to pay for our sins, and in conquering death, rose again on the third day. And in believing in Jesus, I will have eternal life with God in Heaven. And if you believe in Jesus, you will also have eternal life with God in Heaven.

I can't say that I wasn't warned about what people can or will do when they find out that you are a "Jesus Freak", as all four Gospels record Jesus saying the same thing: the world will hate you because of Me (my paraphrase). Hey, they're not called the Synoptic Gospels for nothing...

When I started doing livestreams and making videos on YouTube, I knew up-front that I could lose subscribers for being a "Jesus Freak". I knew that it could cost me followers on social media platforms. And yet it has not deterred me, for I am not chasing after subscribers and followers, but I am chasing after Jesus. So go ahead, unfollow and unsubscribe.

And when you've come to the realization that nothing of this world can fill the God-shaped hole in your heart, Lord willing, I'll be here to pray with you and/or help you find a local church.

Kansas Fest happens in July. (While I can't attend in 2022, I want to in 2023.)

What better month to dedicate to celebrating the Apple ][ series on YouTube (and other social media sites) is there than July?

Who's with me? Just use the hashtag #apple2july (as the braces probably won't work in a hashtag) with any Apple ][-related content, including content on Apple ][ Clones and the //e Card for the Macintosh LC series, you publish this month.

This is open to any content creator, big or small, on any platform: Flickr, YouTube, your blog, etc. Just publish it and tag it!

And maybe next year we can have a cool graphic to go along with it!

No relation.

Rob ART, you you always gave us just the facts about Macintosh performance over the years. Because you always stuck to the facts, you never needed to resort to clickbait to keep us coming back over the years. And you definitely earned your nickname as the Mad Mac Scientist.

We will miss your "Bare Facts on Mac Speed Feats".
