GUEST COLUMN: The most important message for a Christian

Jesus warned of a seven year time of Tribulation that would be so horrible that "if the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he has cut short those days." (Mark 13:20) Few know about this time of horror, since it’s hidden within the Book of Revelation.

I hope all who want to live in Heaven will take the time to listen to Dr. David Reagan as he presents his scholarly “overview of Revelation" at He’s an outstanding speaker who was a college professor for 20 years before the Lord called him to begin Lamb and Lion Prophetic Ministry.

I’ve known him for over 30 years. I was so impressed when he spoke here I wanted his messages on the radio and negotiated and paid for his 15 minute radio show to be aired over the Christian radio station in Baker for three months. It was so popular His ministry kept it going for a few more years.

I know anyone who will view his presentations, they will be preparing for the coming rapture which is the way the Lord has chosen to lift His born again family up to be with Jesus before it occurs.

I believe the shout of the archangel "Come up here” can be at any time so this is one of those lifetime “time is of the essence” opportunities.

No one in their right mind would choose to be here after listening to Dr. Reagan as he correctly tells us what’s coming soon. Remember we must be “in Jesus” to escape and that means surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus and not just saying we believe in Him. The devil believes in Him and far better than any human being.

I’m available to help anyone enter into an eternal relationship with Jesus.

On May 23, 1971, I was granted His Amazing Grace as I melted before Jesus. It is surely the greatest event in my 77 years and will be in anyones.

Becoming a saint of the Lord trumps everything we can obtain or become. As we see the world’s condition worsen daily we must not put this off.

Today is the day of salvation for millions all over the world. If we haven’t experienced our own new birth, we can be one of them.
