Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

COLONISTS DIDN'T COME TO AMERICA FOR THE PRETTY VIEWS

COLONISTS DIDN'T COME TO AMERICA FOR THE PRETTY VIEWS

Bill Federer recounts hardships faced by early settlers

When Muslim Turks conquered the land trade routes from Europe to Asia, Europeans attempted to find sea routes. These attempts were financed either by kings and wealthy private individuals, or through the new invention of “companies.”
In Medieval Europe, there were tradesmen, partnerships and guilds, but “companies” were virtually non-existent, as the paying and receiving of interest was considered the sin of usury. With the Protestant Reformation also came the rise of “joint-stock” companies. “Joint Stock” companies were granted trading monopolies by royal charters from monarchs. Common people, such as carpenters, blacksmiths, bakers, masons, etc., could invest in and receive profits from them.
In 1551, the “Company of Merchant Adventurers to New Lands” attempted to find a northeast sea route from England over the top of Russia to reach China, India and Indonesia’s Spice Islands. They got as far as northern Russia when they were trapped by ice. The company transitioned into the Muscovy Company in 1555 which traded with Russia’s Czar Ivan the Terrible. In 1581, England started the Levant Company, which traded with Turkey’s Ottoman Muslims. In 1600, the British East India Company was formed. Eventually, companies were formed to trade with Africa, the Mediterranean and America.
A delicate balance of competing motivations drove then on, as both then and now, namely, gold versus the Gospel.
In 1585, Sir Walter Raleigh, sailing for the “Virgin” Queen Elizabeth, named his colony in her honor “Virginia,” and founded a settlement on Roanoke Island. Interrupted by the Spanish Armada’s attack on England in 1588, no supplies could be brought to the colony till 1589. They arrived only to discover the colony had disappeared.
In 1606, King James I, for whom the King James Bible was named, granted a charter to the Virginia Company, stating: “For the Furtherance of so noble a Work, which may, by the Providence of Almighty God, hereafter tend to the Glory of His Divine Majesty, in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness.”
Setting sail in late 1606, the Virginia Company sent three ships, the Susan Constant, Discovery, and Godspeed, under Captain Christopher Newport to explore Chesapeake Bay. After a five-month journey, which included a stop in Puerto Rico, they made landfall at Cape Henry on April 26, 1607. Upon landing, they erected a Christian cross and chaplain Rev. Robert Hunt offered prayer, as portrayed in the award winning CBN film “First Landing, the Movie” (2007 Award of Excellence Winner, Michael Little, executive producer).
Sailing up the “James River,” named after King James, they established the first permanent English settlement in the New World on May 13, 1607 – “James Town.”
In the next three years, settlers experienced malaria from mosquito filled swamps, hunger, exposure and Indian attacks. During the “starving time” of 1609-1610, only 60 of the 500 settlers survived. Jamestown would have been abandoned had it not been for the timely arrival of Thomas West, Lord Delaware, June 10, 1610, who brought supplies and persuaded the settlers not to give up.
When the colony’s minister, Rev. Robert Hunt, died, the settlers wrote: “1607. To the glory of God and in memory of the Reverend Robert Hunt, Presbyter, appointed by the Church of England. Minister of the Colony which established the English Church and English Civilization at Jamestown. … His people, members of the Colony, left this testimony concerning him. Rev. Robert Hunt was an honest, religious and courageous Divine. He preferred the Service of God in so good a voyage to every thought of ease at home.”
Settlers continued their tribute of Rev. Robert Hunt: “He endured every privation, yet none ever heard him repine. During his life our factions were ofte healed, and our greatest extremities so comforted that they seemed easy in comparison with what we endured after his memorable death. We all received from him the Holy Communion together, as a pledge of reconciliation, for we all loved him for his exceeding goodness. He planted the first Protestant Church in America and laid down his life in the foundation of America.”
