Letter to the Editor
The Trust Stamp is getting ready to vaccinate in Africa. They have come right out into the open now and are actually telling the public what their vaccine is for. Set themselves up in African Nations by corruption, and now intend to use that to enforce their vaccine on the people who don’t really understand what all the nonsense talk is for a start, and have no way of defending themselves against this, short of going to war.
Time the corrupt governments were taken down, but it has to be done by the people rising up and removing the governments themselves. God helps those who help themselves, and from all I can find in my research, the current events show more and more towards the Second Coming we have been taught about in the Bible.
Everything is there from the sayings about those who are our overlords falling, to the droughts that never end, to the pestilance – Africa and Asia having plagues of locusts/grasshoppers. Not that they don’t get that often, but this time it is massive. And places in the ocean besett by creatures that don’t belong there, wiping out the indigenous species. For example: The Great Barrier Reef has the crown of Thorns starfish they have been battling for umpteen years, which has currently increased on a massive scale, and the thorny sea urchin in the Kelp Fields off Tasmania’s coast. Fire – the massive fires around the world in the last 2 years, – Greece, Spain, even the UK, India, China, Russia, The Americas, California, and culminating in Australia. Plague, the current Corona Virus false flag, but still it is there, and now China have an outbreak of bubonic plague, which flares up periodically. And now the terrible flooding in the equatorial areas like China, and India/Asia. Everything Biblical seems to be on the agenda along with the taking down of the horrific Luciferians.
Those Satanic monsters that have preyed on our world and stolen our children for years and years, all the while posing as those helping to find them, knowing exactly what has happened to them (and a lot of them likely responsible). It is sickening, and so now we have Trump and his White Helmets driving these monsters out of their underground lairs and forcing them to the surface where they can be exposed for what they are.
People are starting to wake up, but it needs to be accelerated now, so that vulnerable nations like those being singled out in Africa, can to be helped to take out the corrupt sinful monsters posing as our governments.
I have never been one of those alarmist types who run around like headless chickens crying that the world will end tomorrow. But the world will end tomorrow if we don’t take care to rise up and overthrow the Satanic Cult running our world.
I have been and will continue to do what I can to help others become aware of what is taking place in our world, that is hidden from so many by the Main Stream Media blindsiding the people. My hope is placed in those who Trump terms his Citizen Journalists and those professionals like yourself, who keep belting it out that these things are going on, even though you get roughed up and called names for bringing the truth to light. Don’t give up, no matter what. We have been warned on all fronts now that prayer and meditation, exuding great love, and no matter what religion you follow, or even if your “God” is nature itself, that the power of love is how we are going to defeat the Satanists, as they cannot tolerate the level of love brought out through our conscious thoughts of good.
A quieted soul
One of the benefits of the Christian walk, that is actively seeking the Living God through Jesus Christ, is finding peace with God.
But this does not mean we are suddenly like robots with a new program and living a life with never-ending peace.
In fact Jesus warns in the scriptures that we will face trials and temptations, and in those sorts of situations peace of mind and soul can rapidly disappear and anxiety take over.
In times of anxiety it is up to us to recall and apply the word of God, such as in Psalm 131:2 where the writer says:
“Surely I have calmed my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
In busy and pressured times we must take time out to calm our soul. The ever-present Holy Spirit will help us and we will begin to see the crisis in perspective and even find that inexplicable, miraculous help.
Until next time …
Do not abuse ‘grace’
from Pastor Mel
A few years back this term “greasy grace” was frequently thrown about in the Christian community.
It referred to the idea of God’s grace being abused like the bloke who goes out willfully sinning during the week, gets forgiveness from the priest at confession and then he’s off again.
Abuse of grace is certainly warned against in the Bible e.g. “Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves,” says 1Peter 2:16.
Similarly, Paul in Galatians 5:13 warns: “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
The fact of the matter is we all fail as believers somewhere along the way, and we struggle to overcome bad habits, thoughts and actions, so we certainly need grace, which is central to Christian living.
Learning to live in that grace is a profound, ongoing spiritual experience, usually found when our focus is off ourselves and doing things to serve others, or when we are honest and open before God with our brokenness and seeking His help.
Until next time …

Biblical freedom = true freedom
We don’t need to lecture people who read Cairns News about the importance of freedom in Australia.
The Bible’s major themes are centred on the ideas of “freedom” and “liberty”, but diverge from popular ideas of freedom.
Many of us will know the story of Moses bringing the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt or the famous words of the prophet Isaiah (61:1): “The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on Me; because Jehovah has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound…”
Isaiah’s prophecy looks ahead to the ministry of Jesus, in physically and spiritually setting free the people of his time on earth and in the future.
Jesus confirmed this in John 8:35-36 in a heated confrontation with some unbelieving Israelites: “A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know you are Abraham’s descendants, but you are trying to kill Me because My word has no place within you.…”
As we know, Jesus went on to suffer a cruel death at the hands of his countrymen and their Roman rulers, but rose again from death to life to reveal his power and confirm himself as the Son of God.
St Paul, the main persecutor of the early church who turned key witness for it, made the profound, big-picture statement in Romans 8:20-21 that the entire creation is destined for freedom: “The creation waits in eager expectation for the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but because of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.”
The same St Paul also had much to say about freedom to the Galatian church that had come under the sway of Judaizers i.e. those Jews who wanted to impose legalistic, Pharisee-like practices on the church.
In Galatians 5:1 Paul states: “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.”
But most importantly, Paul underlines that freedom in Christ is not simply being free “to do what you like”. “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” (5:13)
True freedom puts aside selfishness and takes a higher path where reward is neither sought nor expected but where love is exercised for the benefit of others.

What’s your world view? Is your world one of random, chance happenings which you may or may not be able to control?
Are you just waiting until your “number comes up”?
That’s a brutal, evolutionary view of life and humanity and one totally contradicted by the Christian faith.
Genesis 1, in the first book of the Old Testament, it says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
In the last book, the Book of the Revelation of St John (popularly known as “Revelations”), Jesus appears to John the apostle on the island of Patmos.
John records: “When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. But He placed His right hand on me and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last, the Living One. I was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of Death and of Hades.”
In the biblical world view, everything begins and ends with God.
Many people are fearful and anxious about all manner of things, but Jesus Christ says “do not worry, look at the birds of the air and how well they are provided for, and the lilies of the field and how beautiful they are”!
Have faith. Press in and seek the Lord God, somehow, some way. You might even go to a church somewhere. Jesus Christ is not a dictator. But He seeks, by the Holy Spirit sent by the Father, those whose hearts are open to Him.

I interpret world history and politics in the light of what is written in the Holy Bible, which is the true, the infallible Word of God.
Jesus was God manifest in the flesh, and was a non-political non-violent teacher etc.
John the Baptist called Jesus the “Lamb of God” i.e. the sacrifice to take away our sins. The purpose of his coming to Earth was primarily to suffer unfair crucifixion and rise from the dead. Therefore he is alive in physical form somewhere in this Universe, and is available to come back to Earth.
Jesus said (and other parts of the Bible also state) that He will come back to Earth for multiple purposes, one being that he will finally be accepted by the Jews as their Messiah.
Jesus will come back not as the Lamb of God but as the “Lion of Judah”, as a violent warrior, leading an army to defeat (at the place “Armageddon”) the armies of the new world ruler, “the Antichrist”.
The restoration of Israel in 1948 as a nation is a miracle unprecedented in world history, and it was predicted in various parts of the Bible, some parts having been written centuries before Christ came.
Jesus said that some of the people who see Israel restored will still be alive when he returns. That therefore means that Jesus will be back here before about 2048, or sooner, perhaps 2020! Jesus said that nobody can know the exact day of his return.
However, just as the Bible gives us many signs that predicted Jesus’ first coming, what he would do and what would happen to him, then so too the Bible tells us what will happen shortly before Jesus comes back the second time, what will happen when he returns, and afterwards.
Signs/ events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ the second time:
Attempts in history to exterminate the Jews (e.g. the Inquisition, Hitler’s holocaust, Russia etc)
The emergence of the theory of evolution (based on uniformitarianism not catastrophism)
The re-gathering of Jews into their own land, and the re-birth of the nation of Israel
The prospering and wealth of Israel, and their military might
Then Russia, Iran, Libya will invade Israel, at a time when Saudi Arabia is supportive of Israel, and Britain and USA will not come to the aid of Israel
A sudden increase in sodomy and a decline in marriages between men and women
Declines in attitudes among Christians, and an increase in deceivers, so that Jesus refers to His Church as a mixture of true believers and superficial believers with no inward change
Huge increases in the economy, in scientific knowledge and in high-speed transport
Nuclear weapons (described as unprecedented destruction with mushroom fire clouds)
Turbulence in world politics, leading to people crying out for a strong world leader
Increasing rejection by more people of the traditional Judeo-Christian values, which have been the foundations of stable, just societies
Moves towards a cashless society, a ‘one-world’ government that controls personal finances
Moves towards a ‘one-world’ government, which will be led by a clever flatterer called “the Antichrist” who will rule a one-world government for either 3.5 or 7 years.
Before that world government occurs, Jesus will supernaturally summon true Christians up into Heaven for what He refers to as a “supper” celebration to absent them from the horrible events occurring on Earth in what Jesus called “the Great Tribulation” that lasts 3.5 or 7 years.
It is up to each one of us how we prepare for the return of Jesus Christ, both in our personal lives and in the ways that we help our neighbours e.g. how we contribute to politics and the economy.
It is our duty before God to attempt to slow down the decline, to be as Jesus says “salt and light”
