Faithful Unto Death

Image result for baby chicks under mother's wings
After a forest fire in Yellowstone Park, a National Geographic photographer joined some forest rangers on their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage. As they hiked through the burnt forest, the photographer found a scorched bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat curious of the eerie sight, he gently struck at the bird with his boot. When he did, three tiny chicks scurried out from under their dead mother’s wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had led her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but refused to abandon her chicks. When the blaze arrived and the heat scorched her small body, the mother remained steadfast. Because she was willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live.

The mother bird’s instinct to protect her young at the cost of her own life describes a quality infrequently found among humans. During the shootings in the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater this last year, some people ran for their lives, leaving their own children behind. But others threw themselves over their family at the cost of their own lives. It reminds me of the Bible verse: “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

Jesus did not hesitate to give His life for a world soon to be enveloped in an unquenchable forest fire. Christ wept out the words, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!” (Matthew 23:37). Our Savior stretched out His arms over us, to shield us from the penalty of sin. Christ died in order that we might live.

The picture of a mother hen quietly sitting over her cute brood of little peeping chicks makes us smile. But the picture of Calvary is like the bird that died in the fire at Yellowstone, with outstretched wings, faithful unto death.


He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalms 91:4

Purgatory 101

Having been raised Protestant (Methodist), purgatory is not a concept we have any first hand knowledge about because it is not in the Bible. I did then, and still have, many Catholic (or one time Catholic and now atheist) friends, so it is a concept I became familiar with through them. Having studied in depth the history of the Protestant Reformation in recent years, I now understand its significance relative to the doctrine of indulgences that was the basis of Luther’s “Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences,” also known as the 95 theses, that Luther nailed to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church in 1517, beginning the Protestant Reformation which celebrated its 500th anniversary on October 31, 2017.

For those who are Protestant and do not understand purgatory, or for that matter even why you are a Protestant, and for those who are Catholic (or once Catholic and now atheist) and might like to understand where and why this dreadful false doctrine of demons was created, you will learn much from this short video.  It helped me to have a much greater understanding and empathy for the guilt, fear and anger at God that I encounter from many of my dearly loved Catholic, and now in many cases atheist, friends. I pray they might watch this and have their eyes opened to the fact that God is not the cruel, vicious, brutal tyrant He is made out to be by the Church. He is our Creator, our Heavenly Father who loves us more than we can ever imagine, so much so that He sent His only begotten son to die in our places, to pay our penalty for us, so that whoever believes in Him might not perish but have everlasting life. And while there is certainly an eternal perishing ahead for those who rebel against God and refuse His free and unmerited gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, that perishing is not an unspeakably torturous eternity in flames, but a perishing that has eternal consequences, the second death in the lake of fire, from which there is no chance of resurrection, only eternal destruction.

He Leadeth Me

I don’t know if this happens to other believers — I assume it must — but in the middle of the night I often awake singing in my head, and almost always in the morning as I awake there is a song there, which leads me into prayer before I open my eyes. Last night and into this morning, this was the song that had overtaken me. I find it makes it hard for Satan to take hold of my day when it has begun this way — not that he doesn’t try his hardest, but the hedge of protection is up, the armor is on, the angels of the LORD are encamped round about me, and I am covered with His feathers. Praise God, He leadeth me, and His faithful follower I will be.

The Most Amazing Fact


An Amazing Fact: One of the most amazing materials in nature is the light, flexible, yet incredibly strong compound spiders use to catch unsuspecting insects. It’s spider silk. Pound for pound, the threads produced by these little arachnids can hold more weight than the most sophisticated manufactured materials. The silk in a spider web is an extremely strong substance that has a tensile strength of 300,000 pounds per square inch and is both stronger and lighter than compounds based on steel.

For a long time people have known about the impressive properties of spider silk, and some have dreamed of being able to create it, perhaps the way that the ancient Chinese learned to produce silk from silkworms. But unlike the gentle silkworm, spiders are aggressive, territorial, and not easily domesticated. Up until now all attempts to synthesize spider silk have failed, but a new venture involving gene-splicing is showing considerable promise.

A Canadian company, Nexia Biotechnologies, appears on the verge of manufacturing a substance similar to spider silk through a surprising method, using the milk of goats. Researchers put the spider silk gene into milk animals, since there are close anatomical similarities between the silk-producing glands of spiders and the milk-producing glands of these mammals. The scientists spliced the spider silk gene into cells taken from the mammary glands of goats. The silk genes worked with amazing efficiency in the mammary cells, and Nexia scientists were soon
producing high-quality spider silk.

Now the challenge will be to mass breed these transgenic goats and extract the pure silk protein from the milk and spin it into fabric. If the new stock of genetically altered goats produce as expected, Nexia will have the beginnings of a spider-silk dairy. The product, called “BioSteel,” may soon be used for a variety of applications, from medical sutures to artificial tendons or ligaments. It could be used to create lighter and stronger bulletproof vests, and even for the coatings of space stations to protect them from micro-meteorites.

It’s interesting to consider how many of man’s inventions have been plagiarized from the amazing creatures God has designed. The most amazing fact is that many people think all these wonders of nature have evolved by chance!

O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:24

Beware! The Mark of Beast is Upon Us – Do Not Accept It. Worship God on His Established Day, Not the False Day of the Beast.

Mark of the Beast

The above linked article by the Catholic News Agency is a clear sign to those watching end time signs that we are very near enforcement of the mark of the beast.

To those who do not study end time prophecy and are therefore unaware, the Mark of the Beast involves worship (as has been the case with all of God’s people throughout history), which is the final test at the end of the great controversy to determine which side people have chosen to be on — Christ’s or Satan’s — there are only two sides and there is no middle ground. If Christ’s, then He will be their Lord and Savior, His Spirit will be in them, they will be following Him and will be found keeping the law of God (the Ten Commandments) at His return. “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12). If they are Satan’s, they will be denying Christ as Lord and keeping the counterfeit laws of Satan created by the first beast (the Roman Catholic Church/Vatican State) and enforced by the second beast (the United States), thereby rebelling against the law of God. (Revelation 14:9-11). There will be many people who see themselves as Christians who will be caught in an eternally destructive position if they do not wake up and get themselves on the right track before it is too late. Come out of the apostate churches, come out of worldliness and focus on Jesus and His word, if he is in fact your Lord.  If you are not intentionally focusing on Jesus, by default you are focusing on the wrong lord. The prince of this world is not who you want to be following because you will follow him to your destruction. There is nothing in this world that is worth that end.

In Daniel 7:25 we are told: “And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws:…” The he of course is the little horn power of Daniel 7:7-8, for centuries plainly identified as the Roman Catholic Church/Papal Vatican power — the first beast of Revelation 13, 17 and 18. The law and times he thinks to change (he can only think to do it, as no man can actually change God’s immutable law), is God’s Ten Commandments, spoken by Him and written by Him in stone.

God first created the day in Genesis 2:3, when He rested (sabbath means “day of rest”), and blessed and sanctified it. His day of rest could not be changed, unless God destroyed everything, recreated everything and rested on, blessed and sanctified a different day.

We are told in Isaiah 58:13-14 “ If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day (God’s Day, His holy day, the day of the Lord, the Lord’s day); and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:  Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” Believe me, as a most of my Church life Sunday keeper, now a Sabbath keeper, I can assuredly confirm, if you turn from the false day of worship (Sunday, the pagan venerable day of the sun god) and keep God’s holy day, as He has commanded us to keep it, you will find yourself blessed in ways that you have never been blessed before in your Christian life. More importantly, you will avoid the mark of the beast, which if you receive it, will lead to your eternal destruction. Revelation 14:9-10.

As identified in Exodus 20:8-11, the Sabbath, the Lord’s Day, God’s holy day of rest, is the seventh day, Saturday (no matter how the dragon/Satan through the beast system may induce nations to change their calendars so that Sunday becomes the seventh day of the week, as it has already accomplished through most of Europe (Portugal, France, Spain, Germany, UK, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark and also Greece and Mexico), God’s holy day of rest, His Sabbath that He told us to remember, is Saturday.  “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

Then we have Mark 2:27-28 where Jesus said unto them “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Jesus is the Lord of the sabbath because He created it, as He created all things (John 1:1-3), and as He kept it during His life and ministry on earth, so expects us to keep it also (John 14:15). 

The beloved apostle John was given the Revelation of Jesus Christ on the Sabbath Day while in exile on the Isle of Patmos. “ I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.” Revelation 1:10-11. 

This is a list, not exhaustive, of the languages that use the word sabbath or a derivative thereof for the day of the week we call Saturday, the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath of the LORD our God. Although some calendars may have been changed, and he will attempt to change them all, the beast has much work ahead of him to do away with all reference to the true Sabbath day of rest created by God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is. Unfortunately, a lie repeated often enough becomes truth, even when truth is staring people in the face. The bigger the lie, the more readily people accept it, especially if it is spoken by someone who has placed himself in position to be President of  the planet, as reported, presumably tongue in cheek, by Huffington Post in 2015 concerning Pope Francis. They probably had no idea how accurate a portrayal of him they publicized.

Islam and Christianity, the Basics – Daniel 11

The first video is part 1 of a 10 part series focusing on Islam and Christianity in prophecy, as described in Daniel 11; but the series covers so much of end time prophecy in Daniel and Revelation, and sheds so much light on Bible truth, that I have to strongly recommend the whole series for anyone who wants to understand what is going on in the world today, and what is coming right around the corner, so that all might be prepared. To see the complete series, visit: .

Is ISIS in Bible prophecy? Tim Roosenberg gives a brief review of the Bible prophecies of Daniel Chapter 11, the King of the North, King of the South and the role of radical Islam in the third and final conflict. This is covered in the second video above.

I have studied extensively and listened to many end time prophecy series by many excellent pastors and lecturers, but I have to say this series is the most comprehensive I have listened to, by far.

Come Out of Her My People, Before You Suffer Her Plagues


By now most people have read one of the many accounts in the news today of the Roman Catholic Church and her ongoing problem with child abuse and Pedophilia. It has been going on for so long, and been covered up and sanctioned by the “Church” for so long, that it is no longer vile, hateful and shocking to many people. The Pope has already said atheists will enter in, why not pedophiles too, and murders and rapists, idolaters and adulterers, fornicators, thieves, Sabbath breakers, liars, blasphemers, etc. They have already spoken great words against the Most High, worn out the saints of the Most High, and thought to change times and laws (Daniel 7:25), so why not do away with all Ten of God’s Commandments (Exodus 20:3-17), instead of just removing the 2nd and rewriting the 4th and 10th to suit their agenda. Jesus said: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, not abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, not covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians. 6:9-10. What people are not seeing or hearing is God’s loud cry to His people:

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:1-4 

Jesus so clearly identifies her and her harlot daughters (apostate Protestantism) for us in Revelation 17:

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters (people, nations, multitudes and tongues, Rev. 17:15):  With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (spiritual adultery, paganism). So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour (colors of the bishops and cardinals of Rome), and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls (no explanation needed), having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication (Mass/transubstantiation): And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus (Inquisition and other persecutions of “Mother Church”, which resulted in the deaths of 50,000,000 plus “heretics” who chose to follow the Bible instead of the traditions, pagan rituals and laws of men): and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”

We are fast approaching the time of Christ’s return, and the warning is going out loud and clear for His people to come out of apostasy, whether it be the Roman Catholic Church or the false prophet of apostate Protestantism that has departed from truth and joined hands with the Papacy, the antichrist system, and the Roman Church/.Vatican Beast system. 

The warning He is giving the world today is contained in the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12. People need to heed this warning before it is too late and they find themselves in the lake of fire, where there is no need for them to go, except they rebel against God and His Word, and so choose it.

“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’ (see Exodus 20:11 – this refers to the 4th Commandment). And another angel followed, saying, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.’

Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.’

Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”

Beware! Religious Liberty Task Force Shows The Mark of the Beast is Near

This is a Bible study people, take out your Bibles and study these scriptures for yourself so you can see what is happening and how prophecy is being fulfilled before us.

America’s Religious Liberty Task Force is alarming to many people for different reasons. Atheists feel it is an attack against them. LGBT, etc. , etc. see it as an attack against them. Those following religions other than Christianity feel it slights them. To Bible believing Christians who study the prophecies contained in Daniel and Revelation, it clearly heralds the approach of the mark of the beast—enforced Sunday worship, which is being aggressively pushed on the world by the Papacy (the antichrist system, the man of sin/perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 and little horn power of Daniel 7). Only the apostate Evangelical Protestants see it as a good thing, because they pushed it into being.

Apostate Protestantism (the harlot daughters referenced in Revelation 17:5 and false prophet of Revelation 16:13) have joined hands with the Roman Catholic Church/Papacy (the beast/harlot woman/the mother of harlots of Revelation 13, 17 and 18 and little horn of Daniel 7), and will push for a Sunday law, which will be legislated by the second beast system, (the two horned lamb-like beast coming up out of the earth of Revelation 13:11-18, representing the nation that arose out of the wilderness and was founded around 1798 when the first beast was wounded, on lamb-like Christian principles, with the two horns representing the separation of church and state), the United States of America. As the wall that separates church and state is broken down, America will create the image to the first beast—the Roman Catholic Church/Vatican State union of church and state.

Once America legislates and enforces a Sunday law, they will cause all to worship the first beast (keep the false law/tradition of the beast system—Sunday). Sunday, the pagan venerable day of the Sun, legislated by Emperor Constantine in 321 AD and adopted by the Roman Catholic Church in 364 AD at the Council of Laodicea (canon 29 which outlawed keeping the Sabbath and encouraged rest on Sunday) is a law and tradition of man vs. the true law of God—the Sabbath, established as the fourth of the Ten Commandments of God in Exodus 20:8-11, and created by God at the time of creation, before the fall and before there was a Jew, in Genesis 2:2-3.

It all comes down to true or false worship in the end. Those who worship God in spirit and truth and are found keeping His commandments, receive the seal of God (Revelation 14:1, 12). Those who worship the beast and his false system receive the mark of the beast (Revelation 14:9-11).

Realize that Blue Laws are still enforced to some extent in a number of states, and the Supreme Court has upheld the laws as constitutional: “The Supreme Court of the United States held in its landmark case, McGowan v. Maryland (1961), that Maryland’s blue laws violated neither the Free Exercise Clause nor the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. … There were four landmark Sunday-law cases altogether in 1961.” Wikipedia. For a much more detailed look into the history of Sunday rest or Blue Laws, visit

On a seemingly unrelated but definitely connected note, Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is said to be nearly inevitable. This is equally as concerning as Session’s Religious Liberty Task Force to those watching prophecy being fulfilled. Brett Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic, closely tied to the Jesuit order, lecturing and teaching at the Washington Jesuit Academy. He also attended the Georgetown Preparatory Academy, the same Jesuit High School that was attended by Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh even mentioned the Jesuit component of his high school in his acceptance speech. For those not aware of the role of the Jesuits; they are the hit man order of Roman Catholicism whose created purpose was to counter the Protestant reformation by whatever means necessary. Having a Catholic leaning Supreme Court with a Jesuit on board clearly bodes the time of America forming the image to the beast is upon us.

To quote part of this article:

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new “religious liberty task force” at the Department of Justice. Sessions made the announcement at a Religious Liberty Summit, which was backed by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). But a closer look at what Sessions and groups like the ADF mean when they talk about “religious liberty” makes clear how both religion and freedom are being redefined by this administration to serve an extreme agenda. It’s time for people who care about the future of democratic society to reclaim the concept of religious liberty.

Plenty of Americans still value the separation of church and state and, along with it, the establishment clause’s guarantee of freedom of conscience for all people. Outside the circles of the extreme right, religious liberty has long been a progressive value, celebrated by abolitionists, tax resisters, conscientious objectors and religious minorities alike. So long as an American respects the legal rights of his neighbor, the Constitution promises him the freedom to obey his own conscience when it comes to matters of religious conviction. But when groups like the ADF talk about religious liberty, they are really talking about liberty for one specific religion — Christianity.”

The problem with the Religious Liberty Task Force is that it is ultimately talking about liberty for the religious right; more specifically the apostate Evangelical Christian base which advises the Trump Administration (the false prophet who make up Trump’s Advisory Committee, starting with the Vice President), and has joined forces with the Papacy (the antichrist system) and Roman Catholicism (the beast system). This is very dangerous indeed, but the Bible has clearly warned us, and for those who study end times prophecy and recognize the signs of its fulfillment, we see this as just another nail in the construct of the system that will enable the mark of the beast to be enforced.

Once church and state have united, which they are in the process of doing now, persecution will arise, as it did under the Roman Catholic Papal Church State system of the Middle Ages, during which time ten of millions of Christians who did not agree with Rome’s traditions and false teachings, and chose instead to follow their conscience and  the teachings of Holy scripture, were tortured and killed. That will happen again, and it will be so-called “Christians” pushing the state to do the persecuting and slaughtering. History will repeat itself.

This is an excellent discussion by Andrew and Hilari Henriquez on the Religous Liberty Task Force and other current events in prophecy

On a seemingly unrelated but definitely connected note, Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is said to be nearly inevitable. This is equally as concerning as Session’s Religious Liberty Task Force to those watching prophecy being fulfilled. Brett Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic, closely tied to the Jesuit order, lecturing and teaching at the Washington Jesuit Academy.

Are You Becoming An Iceberg?

An Amazing Fact: On March 21, 2000, one of the largest icebergs ever seen broke free from the Antarctic’s Ross Ice Shelf. An image, taken from a polar satellite 435 miles up, alerted scientists and mariners to the iceberg’s birth. It is one of the largest ever seen at 183 miles long and 23 miles wide, with a surface area of 4,250 square miles. The biggest iceberg ever recorded was 208 miles long and 60 miles wide, a total of 12,000 square miles. That’s larger than the country of Belgium. Even more amazing, it was spotted floating in the South Pacific. It’s astounding how far from the Polar regions icebergs can wander. Icebergs from the Arctic north have reached as far south as the island of Bermuda, a journey of 2,500 miles. One iceberg from the Antarctic has reached almost as far north as Rio de Janeiro, a journey of 3,440 miles.

The tallest iceberg ever recorded was 550 feet high. That’s as tall as a 50-story building! But remember that only 10 percent of an iceberg’s mass is above water, meaning the bulk of this titan could have reached 4,000 feet deep. I have also read there is so much ice stored on the continent of Antarctica, that if you could cut it into huge ice cubes one mile thick you would end up with 6 million cubes. Should all of that ice melt, it would raise the sea level over the entire world by 260 feet. Ice on Antarctica is so heavy that over the years it has pushed the continent itself down several hundred feet.

Jesus warned us in the last days, because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. How can we have our hearts warmed and our first loved rekindled in a spiritually cold world? Perhaps it is found in the words of John the Baptist: “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” (Luke 3:16).

When we invite Christ into our hearts and are filled with the Holy Spirit, there is a warming of our lives from within that will melt away the cold clutches of sin on our hearts. Then we will have purpose and not float aimlessly like a drifting iceberg.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12

Church Physically Moved by the Hand of God

“An Amazing Fact: In 1874, Methodists in Swan Quarter, North Carolina, decided to construct a permanent church building. The homeless Christians found what they believed was the ideal site for their church, a perfect lot in the heart of town on its highest ground. But when they approached the owner of the lot, Sam Sadler, he did not want to waste his prime real estate for a church. Even after their offer was increased, Sadler flatly refused to sell the land.

Soon after, the Methodists accepted a gift of land a half mile away on some low-lying property. The members cheerfully began building a modest but sturdy structure on brick piers. Then something miraculous occurred that has been confirmed by scores of witnesses. On September 17, 1876, right after they dedicated the small church, a powerful hurricane began to brew. Rain fell and the wind blew until the rising water lifted the little Methodist Church from its foundation and began to carry it like Noah’s ark up the street. People awoke the next morning to witness an amazing sight—the entire church was floating down Oyster Creek Road.

A few good Samaritans saw the drifting church and tried to tie it off with ropes, but it broke its moorings and continued its journey as though it had a mind of its own. It went straight down the road to a corner, bumped into a general store, then took a sharp right turn and headed down that road for about two city blocks until it reached the corner of what is now Church Street. Then it took another turn to the left, crossed the Carawan Canal, and stopped.

The little church had settled exactly in the center of the property the members had originally requested for their house of worship, the parcel Sam Sadler had refused to sell for a church. After seeing the mighty work of Providence, Mr. Sadler, with trembling hands, gave the title deed for the land to the Methodist pastor. When the church was dedicated, it was called “Providence.” Today, a sign stands in front of the Providence Church, reminding visitors this was the church “Moved by the Hand of God.”

Just as God guided that floating church, He guides His people and His church today. “The Lord is your keeper …” (Psalm 121:5). He will carry us through any flood of trouble or persecution that we face.

The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalms 93:4″

By 1881, the church had acquired the lot where the members had originally wanted to build the sanctuary and the little church that God divinely guided to that site inspired the name, “Providence United Methodist Church.” The church’s membership had grown considerably by the 1900’s. In 1913, a brick sanctuary was built to replace the original frame structure.

Today, the small frame church sits behind the modern brick sanctuary of the Providence United Methodist Church on Main Street in Swan Quarter and serves as church classrooms.
