HOME PAGE: Welcome All ! We trust you’ll find this site visit worthy and return often. Rather than sell, stock or ship any items, this is an information only web site. We’ve strived to post Helpful and Supportive Emergency & Health Tips & Resources. All Main tabs and Download pdf articles are frequently Updated for Your Review. We've included various Christian messages too, due to statements such as the following from 2 famous folks we felt important to share with all: C. S. Lewis, (1898–1963) was an Irish author and Oxford and Cambridge professor known for his many writings. He is often described as one of the greatest Christian apologists of the twentieth century. His thoughtful statements included, “ if Christianity isn’t true, it’s of no importance, but if it is true, nothing is more important.” And, Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) the famous 19th Century British Baptist Pastor, known as “The Prince of Preachers." He is well remembered in Evangelical circles for his many quotes (see www.spurgeon.us). One particularly gaining our attention was, “If we do not have a burden for the lost, we best question our own salvation.” Let us all keep these 2 thoughts in mind, as we ponder the below 2 current and Important Questions...

QUESTION #1: We are living in turmoil times (visit TruNews.com). Are you fully physically prepared for unexpected factors, such as power outages, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, economic turmoil, food shortages, pestilences and even wars, etc.? The Bible warns of such turbulent times as these are to be expected and even grow in frequency and intensity (per Matthew 24:4 and others). It is our goal to convince you to stay healthy and stock some emergency food and water (regardless of where obtained) and to be prepared for such safety and survival needs. Plus, point you toward some good resources, tips, and helpful articles, etc. Keep in mind the Bible does say "A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences." Proverbs 22:3 (TLB).

QUESTION #2: Are you fully and spiritually a Rapture-Ready Christian? Many await the Lord to remove His Saints (the Church) from this Earth via the Rapture, and prior to the up to 7 years of devastating Tribulation prophesied in the Bible Book of Revelation. Some feel the prophesied signing of a 7 year peace treaty involving Israel will trigger the start of such a period. Some feel the 4 Horses of the Apocalypse have already left the barn and are now galloping. Be aware too, that various studies indicate the Rapture could occur at the Tribulation Mid-point, or Pre-Wrath, or even Post-Tribulation, rather than the Pre-Tribulation interpretation that many anticipate. Note: Well worth a serious watch is the "Preparing for Perilous Times" video DVD by Eric Barger at Take A Stand Ministries ! (EricBarger.com) which fully describes our declining modern morals and their effects, etc. -vs- bible warning prophecies such as Isaiah 5:20-21, etc.   

Regardless of the timing on the most glorious Rapture event, the B.I.B.L.E. remains our best source of “Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.” Our best destination will of course be God’s massive 1500 miles long, high and wide majestic and golden Heavenly facility, known both as Heaven and the New Jerusalem, with over 600 Bible verses referring to it. We can find some glimpses as experienced by NDE (Near Death Experience) visions posted at web site ImagineHeaven.net. They reflect the inspired book of same title by Pastor John Burke at Gateway Church in Austin, Texas. Both my Pastor and 2 Family Medical Doctors feel many such visions are truly valid.

Thank goodness too, we positively know "The Rose (Christ Jesus) Arose !" And, as the Phil Cross song so beautifully recorded by Poet Voices says, "Jesus Built a Bridge to Heaven, with only 3 Nails and 2 Pieces of Wood." Fortunately too, we can now securely pre-book our own trip there by a personal salvation reservation, with our name eternally recorded in “The Lamb’s Book of Life” with permanent ink. The above Drawing basically tells the tale. The Dinosaurs missed the boat (which of course was Noah's Ark). We can miss the boat too, by failing to prepare for the various floods in life that are bound to come. Or even worse, missing the Rapture when it occurs by not being Born Again Christians with Spiritual Oil in our Lamps !

So don’t delay becoming a sincere Follower of Christ as “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of Salvation" (2 Cor. 6:1-2). It really only requires 2 heart-felt steps; (1) Repentance of sin (make a U-Turn and head toward the Cross of Christ) as Acts 3:19 and others set out. (2) Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (with a deep abiding Faith and Trust) as John 14:6 and others call for. Water Baptism can signify your commitment to Christ at Galatians 3:17 and other scriptures. Good Works following per Revelations 2:23 and others, can always qualify us for Heavenly Rewards. Plus, we can gain some good earthly Heavenly assurance with the pdf article "How To Know You Are Going To Heaven" by Capt. Dale Black (under Downoads in Other Msgs. folder). And do vlsit his ministry web site at DaleBlack.org (who by the way had an NDE when he was a young pilot).

Not a Christian? Please read our free “Christian Factors” pdf article by Billy Graham and Greg Laurie (also under Downloads In Other Msgs. folder). We further invite you to request our free copy of “Why Christianity” booklet by Ray Comfort (we’ll even throw in a replica Million Dollar Bill with a good gospel message on the back). You can also access Ray's free audio MP3 download of his signature message at the web site HellsBestKeptSecret.com. And for certain do obtain a good Christian Bible and do read it often, and with an open (and Prayerful) mind. Any questions can normally even be answered in this manner as the Bible basically interprets itself if sufficiently read. Helpful modern english Bible translations would include the New Century Version (NCV) or the Modern English Version (MEV). Be sure and read the New Testament Gospel of John and the Book of Acts and Romans for a good Christian background understanding. Free downloads of these and other books of the Bible (in the ERV Easy-Read-Version) are readly available at BibleLeague.org. Free audio MP3 Bibles may be downloaded at https://www.faithcomesbyhearing.com/audio-bibles/download/eng/engesvn2da , and Bibles may be read and heard free online courtesy of CBN at http://bible.cbn.com/?intcmp=wop2018fall#!/bible/nlt/43/1?p=audio . A popular site to look up bible verses is the Bible Gateway site found at https://www.biblegateway.com/?version=9 .

Do find, attend and support a good Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Christian Church (regardless of what denomination the sign out front says). We agree with John Piper (pastor and author) that the 1st Priority of the Church should be Worship, and the 2nd Missions. We’d also recommend the classic books, “More Than A Carpenter” by Josh McDowell and “God’s Plan For The Ages” by David Reagan. Later recommendations would certainly involve "Way Of The Master" by Ray Comfort and "In Light of Eternity" and "The Treasure Principal" by Randy Alcorn. Various stances on the Rapture timing itself can be found on the internet at web sites such as: ChristInProphecy.com. TrackingBibleProphecy.com, OliveTreeViews.org, TribulationTruth.com, LorenDavis.com, EndTime.com and CBN.com. Dr. Hugh Ross at Reasons.org has long felt just prior to Mid-Tribulation best fits all of the rapture related scriptures (see our “Rapture Promise” pdf article under Downloads in Other Msgs. folder).

Of course various web sites (or even Churches or entire Denominations) can espouse their own views, traditions, etc., so be aware that some differences do occur. We feel an open (and Prayerful) mind, as mentioned above, with regular Bible study, seeking wisdom from God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will best keep us on the most correct long run track. This would include good Pastoral and Elder input. We can also take advantage of Christian broadcasting such as radio, TV, and even computer listen to outlets such as the Lesea Broadcasting Network. They maintain 6 worldwide shortwave radio transmitters as example, operating 24/7 via air and internet streaming at lesea.com/streaming-audio. Also, a good trustworthy and balanced source of internet Christian infomation, topics and articles, etc., among others, is the well respected BGEA (Billy Graham Evangelistic Assn.) extensive web site found at: https://billygraham.org/grow-your-faith/topics/?outreach=FlyingBlindFilm

SUPPORT: We would further indeed encourage all and especially fellow Christians to assist in the support of committed Great Commission and Humanitarian Ministries such as FaithComesByHearing.com (and especially their Military BibleStick program), the JesusFilm.org , EHC.org (Every Home for Christ), and Franklin Graham’s SamaritansPurse.org, We can partner wth CBN (The 700 Club) at CBN.com and/or Orphan's Promise. CBN also has many helpful materials and articles, etc., plus a 24 hour Prayer Line at 800/700-7000. Also see sites such as ChosenPeople.com (Watchman program), NeverThirstWater.org (water wells), LifeToday.org (James Robison, orphan feeding, etc.), and the SalvationaAmyUSA.org, etc. We do suggest any donatons normally be to established EFCA approved members, or other recognized and accedited financial oversight groups.

Please Pray daily for the peace of Jerusalem, as well as all Nations (but think what a wonderful world we'd have if everyone just observed Luke 6:31 as Christ Himself admonished us). Kindly Pray too, for the Safety of all First Responders such as Police, Fire, Medical and Military. Furthermore, as a Christian by faith and Southern Baptist by choice, we invite you to visit our local Church web site at TroutCreekBaptist.com and freely listen 24/7 to the audio messages posted there from Pastor Randy Fults. If you are not presently tithing or supporting a local church or simply willing to bless our East Texas Church, any and all tax deductible gifts to Trout Creek Baptist "HopeWorks" would be most welcome and put to good use. This is a needed and Christian based Soup Kitchen, Food Pantry and Clothing Closet Ministry, serving the general area, plus this Church sponsors two Native Romania Field Missionaries. The Church address for postal mail is Trout Creek Baptist Church at PO Box 449 in Kirbyvile, Tx 75956, or credit cards may be utilized via their web site. Thank you for any support accordingly, and visiting any or all of the web sites listed.

You'll further find some excellent Christian teaching ministries on the internet, facebook and various Christian Television Networks, with outstanding and annointed ministries such as: Touching Lives (James Merritt), Turning Point (David Jeremiah), Harvest (Greg Laurie), The Blessed Life (Robert Morris), Pathway to Victory (Robert Jeffress), etc. We encourage you to watch these programs and to support them accodingly. Most also offer free daily devotional e-mail messages which are well worth subscribing too, and serve as great scripture reminders and learning tools too. Well worth your time would certainly also include Hal Lindsey Ministries and The Gospel Greats from Paul Heil. As Ray Comfort at LivingWaters.com reminds us, "It is God's Goal for our lives that we all become more Christlike." And, as Leonard Slye (a.k.a. Roy Rogers) always said, "May the Good Lord Take A  Liking To Ya ! " So, Stay Well, Stay Prepared and Stay Prayed Up ! And do keep in mind that…”The Sun Was Still Shining When Noah Built The Ark…”
