An End and a Beginning

Okay, as promised, today is the last day that Omega Shock will be using MailChimp. As of this moment, 3:09 p.m. in Taipei, there are seven thousand, four hundred and five subscribers.

7,405 subscribers?


I can hardly believe it.

But, I do believe it, and I take my responsibility towards every one of you, very seriously. If I give you bad information and wrong analysis, I will stand before God one day, and answer for that.

Even more importantly, I care about each one of you. I want each of you to be okay, to do well and to prosper in your walk with Christ.

That’s what Omega Shock is all about. And, as I seek the Lord’s direction in where Omega Shock goes next, I hope to be able to let you know by email. That’s why I have upgraded one of the two web servers that I use, and have created a new website:

That website is in its early stages of being built up, so there’s not much to see there. In the future, (Lord willing) it will act as a secondary archive of Omega Shock articles, as well as the place to subscribe and unsubscribe from The Shock Letter. The most important part is the engine that will power The Shock Letter, from today, onward:

Assuming that everything works as it should, Dada Mail will be the engine that makes sure that you get your weekly Shock Letter. I’ve been fiddling with it for a few weeks, and it seems to work as advertised.

The interface is a bit clunky, so I will be diving in and doing some modifications to make it less… awkward …in appearance. Ultimately, the important thing is that you get the newsletter in you inbox. If that doesn’t happen… well, I’ll hafta switch to something else.

To Subscribe

For anyone who would like to subscribe to The Shock Letter, click the following link:

Once I finish the modifications, you’ll just need to go to main page of The Shock Letter, and forget that ‘dada/mail.cgi’ thing. I like tidiness in addresses, and THAT is just not a tidy address.

A Brief Word About The Future

Things are heating up.

In fact, they are heating up a lot more than you might realize. This means that Ezekiel’s Fire is a lot closer. A LOT closer. This means that I need to do a better job of getting the word out. And, it seems like the best way to do that is video. I don’t like doing video. I’m a much better writer than I am a speaker. So, getting in front of a camera and speaking intelligently is not what I’m good at.

But, I’m going to do it, anyway.

Lord willing, after I get The Shock Letter email system working the way that it should, I’ll be bringing back The Shockcast. I stopped doing that to finish Ezekiel’s Fire, and since Ezekiel’s Fire is complete… well …it’s back to YouTube. But, this time it will be a little different.

You’ll actually get to see me talk, jab fingers, wave hands and wiggle my eyebrows. Body language is an important part of communication, so I need to put that into the equation. So, pray for me as I try to reach this new level. It’s way out of my comfort zone, but the message is important.

Oh, And My Autoimmune Disease…

And, speaking of prayers, I’d like to ask for one more. The stress of trying to get all this done has led to another flair-up of my autoimmune disease Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP).

HSP isn’t normally life threatening, and mine certainly isn’t. But, it’s painful and even debilitating, if left unchecked. Oh, and HSP can leave you looking like you should be in the hospital. Blood-soaked bandages aren’t pretty to look at. And, it looks horrifying without the bandages.

And no, I will not share the pictures.

Trust me.

It’s gross.

Okay, ’nuff said. The Lord is good, and He knows what’s best for me. A grumpy old man, like myself, needs a thing or two to keep him in check.

Back To This New Email System

Again, The Shock Letter will – Lord willing – be coming to you from a different location, from now on.

There dark days ahead, and you need to be watching for them. Jesus called us to do that, and I want to do what I can to help. May the Lord guide and keep you, as we both move deeper into these Last Days.

Yours in Christ,

John Little

  1. Hi John,
    in addition to my last message – a few curiosities:
    -just scroll through the headlines:
    Being in Europe I can only confirm all of this. Nobody cares, but climate is complex and non-linear system which operates in “slowly then all at once” mode. Looking at our Sun I’m afraid we already passed “slowly” and are probably stepping on the last letter of “then”. Biblical “reservoires of hail and snow” are getting ready to open…
    Speaking about ice – ever wondered what would be an offspring of mother-corvette, and father-icebreaker?
    And something to equip it:
    -catch me if you can. The most important part is “…can be launched from universal launching platforms 3C14” – that means that, in near future, every new small corvette, coastal launchers and many others will be able to throw these things into the air. And we’ll not know what’s in the tube until it fires.
    Yours in Christ

    • Hi Chris,

      That ‘Ice Age Now’ site looks interesting. It is now bookmarked, and I will be fighting for chances to look into it. An awesome contribution, Chris!

      As for the other two, the thing that impresses me so much about Russian hardware, is the design philosophy. Economical. Minimalist. Rugged. And, VERY dangerous. That Project 23550 is a case in point.

      I have been appalled at America’s design philosophy and willingness to use expensive weapons on low value targets. Yes, there are some great American weapons systems out there, but there are just as many that are just plain (and plane) stupid.

      America is about to find out that the Russians have done far more, with less.

      Another awesome comment, Chris. One of these days, you and Mrs. Chris will need to start your own website.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. I have a question that I would like you to answer, but I can’t seem to find an e-mail for you, so I will pose it here and hope you don’t mind that it is off topic for your post today. You have been, on every subject that I can remember, always 100% right on with truth, cutting through the nonsense and getting to the core of things. Your handling of the issue with Nathan Leal and the other watchmen who came against him for standing on truth is a prime example. Your stance on Israel as the children of God (albeit wayward at the moment) is another.

    So I would like to hear your thoughts about the recent incident with the Bible Answer Man converting to Orthodoxy. So many Protestant Christians came out and slammed the Orthodox as just like the Catholics — heretics and “not really Christian.” They said things like “Those poor Coptic Orthodox who died in the ISIS bombing are dead for a demon religion.” I was absolutely floored by their response.

    I grew up Greek Orthodox, and even though I would consider myself “unchurched” at the moment, I now attend a Bible study at a Coptic Orthodox church, and I can assure you, Orthodox Christians are exactly that — Christians. They may do things differently than your average Baptist or Pentecostal believer does, but at the end of the day, they believe in the one true God and Jesus Christ whom He sent. All of their practices are biblical (with their interpretation), and their reasoning for doing the things that most Protestants don’t like also lines up with scripture. In fact, I have taken some of my concerns to God, and I believe that He let me know that it is a Romans 14 thing. They are convinced that the way they worship is the way to make God happy, and who are we to judge another’s servant?

    Since I have become awake, I have started to swim in the pools of the “remnant” believers online. These are people from a variety of Christian backgrounds who know what time it is, believe everything the Bible says, and live their lives totally focused on God and His plan — these are the people with whom I identify online. But their reactions and spoken beliefs about the Orthodox was like a collective punch in the gut for me.

    Ravi Zacharias said it best when he said, “Unity does not have to be uniformity.” He also said, “God is not an American.” I thought if anyone could give me an explanation/opinion from an unbiased perspective, it would be you since have been around the world and know that not everyone who loves the Lord is exactly the same.

    Thank you for taking time to read my long post. I look forward to your new website and will continue to follow you through my subscription service. I prayed and will continue to pray for your health condition and trust that God will give you comfort and care in any position that He sees fit to place you.

    • Hi Angela G.,

      Whenever someone says that I am ‘always 100% right on with truth’, I shiver with horror. Because I have a history of being so wrong, that I’m surprised that God did not strike me dead.

      So, as much as I appreciate you saying something like that, I implore you to never BELIEVE it. I’m always wrong on something, so you must always take what I say with ‘a grain of salt’.

      In fact, one of the many areas that I have been so egregiously wrong, is in this ‘we are saved but they are not’ philosophy. I strongly identify with Paul’s statement “I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee”. I spent my early life as a ‘Holier Than Thou Baptist’, and I hope that I’ve truly shaken the ‘Holier Than Thou’ part.

      So, let me lay out a few principles that I try to follow in terms of looking at this idea of ‘who is a true Christian’.


      By their fruits ye shall know them. Every time I read that verse, (Matthew 24:7), I felt convicted that I was wrong, until God led me to fruitfulness.

      If you want to see whether they are truly Christian?

      Look at their fruit.


      This is actually a part of the ‘fruit’, but it deserves its own section. When you challenge a ‘leader’ on a point, how do they react?

      Do they react with love? And, Love of the Truth?

      Or, do they pound you down and try to shut you up?

      A true Christian won’t do that.

      Yes, there are times when we need to stop someone from preaching true heresy… such as one person who continually seems interested in doing so, here in the comment section.

      But, within the context of the Word of God, a True Christian will engage in love over the Word of God. And, there are many that I consider true brothers in Christ, that I disagree with strongly, but appreciate very, very much for their good heart. (Yes, Michael, I’m talking about YOU.)


      God is the judge.

      Ultimately, this really is main point. WE are not the ones to determine who is saved, and who isn’t. In fact, when you look at it closely enough, salvation is a real mystery.

      Why did God choose me and my wife, and not Mrs. Lee, two doors down – with her adorable little dog and her cat, named French Fries. (Mrs. Lee moved away, but my heart still aches over the fact that she just isn’t interested in Christ.)

      For instance, I believe that the woman in Revelation 17 is the Roman Catholic Church. I’m not dogmatic over this, but it DOES add an interesting point.

      It says THIS in the next chapter:

      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.

      Revelation 18:2

      Is this referring to Rome and the Roman Catholic Church?

      I believe that it does, and that it means that there are those who are saved in the RCC. Of course, this is not for me to judge, but it indicates to me that God has His people in places that might surprise my very narrow view.

      The more accurate question is: How MANY of ANY denomination is saved?

      My response?

      Not many.

      I’m willing to bet that there is not one Christian denomination with even a majority of members who are actually saved. I could be wrong, and I hope that I’m wrong. But, I see very little true faith in ANY denomination.

      This applies to the many streams of Orthodox Christianity. I am deeply concerned about the errors that I have heard about in the Orthodox church. But, I am also willing to believe that there are many who truly have faith in Christ.

      Ultimately, God is the judge. And, I believe that those who have truly humbled themselves before God, and truly seek His will… will be guided to the right place, at the right time, to hear the right words that will feed their soul.

      So, be reading your Bible. Start with the source of our knowledge – the Bible. God will use that humble submission to the truth to direct you through the Holy Spirit. If He can do that with me, I KNOW that He will do that for you.

      Thank you for that heartfelt comment, Angela. Such comments are NEVER out-of-place.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • I knew I came to the right place. Thank YOU for your detailed and truthful comment back to me. So many of your points were points I have thought or made myself (specifically the “Why did God choose me and not ____” and the idea that in virtually all Christian denominations, there are more pew-sitters than genuine believers).

        Yes, we will know them by their fruit, and yours is better than Dole. 🙂

  3. If i am already subscribed to your newsletter currently do i need to re-subscribe under the new link? I want to make sure I don’t miss anything!

  4. As to your your reply to Angela: HALLELUJAH and AMEN. I wonder these things myself. I recall it says “get thee out from her”. It shakes me to think that there are bound to be good Christians in RCC, and a lot of other churches, but what is keeping them there. I have wondered about the church in Russia, like what is their doctrine. King James had the WORD transferred into English so the common man could read and understand. Ask, seek, and knock are small requirements. I do agree that there will be a remnant that will be taken from a lot of churches, unless there is a huge revival. Prosperity in this country has led to a lot of complacency. There is a slew of unhumble people out there.
    GODSPEED, and keep your swords sharp and powder dry

    I saw a link over at BIN about a new species of wasp showing up in USA with fatal sting.

    So if this isn’t a dear JOHN letter, all I have to do every week is go to

    • Christ is Risen!

      I am Orthodox, coming from 30 years in the non-denominational church world. I won’t speak for the church in Russia, but for the Orthodox Church in America. They preach Jesus Christ, our only salvation. Glorified, risen and ascended. Hanegraaff summed up his belief in the Nicene Creed, a codified statement of belief that was beautifully crafted in the 4th century. It is recited every Sunday during the Divine Liturgy.

      It is not perfect, but it is an unchanging, beautiful and meaningful church to work out your salvation.

      • Hi Bella,

        If the Orthodox believe that Jesus is God… If they obey Him, in immersing (dunk completely under the water) those who profess faith in Christ… (Baptism). If they faithfully seek to accept the Bible as it says, and not as they want it to say… If they seek the direction of God through the Holy Spirit and through the Bible… If their fruit is acceptable to God…

        …then, I am more than ready to accept them as brothers and sisters in Christ.

        Thank you for sharing that, Bella.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

    • Hi BigJon,

      My hope and prayer is that these gatherings bear great fruit.

      The question is always whether it ‘sticks’. However, there is always hope.

      Choosing Christ is only the first step. The goal is a LIFE of repentance and faith. I grieve over those who accepted Christ, but did not live for Christ. It is so depressing to see. But, there are many who DO take these opportunities to live for the One who died for them.

      Sorry to throw that depressing thought in there. I guess that I’m a worrywart when it comes to those who join themselves to the Body of Christ. I just can’t help myself.

      May God bless and keep this movement in South Africa. May He guide these precious souls, to live for their Lord and Savior. May the church in South Africa be a true reflection of Jesus Christ to a dark and dying world.

      And, may God bless you, BigJon. Keep us posted, brother!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  5. John I continually wonder and at times stress over the spiritual state of the people I love including you. I am convinced you are a “born again” believer. I judge this by your fruit and obvious love of the bible and the Lord. So we can know by seeing the fruit in peoples lives. I always find myself forgetting that there are 9 fruits of the spirit documented in the bible.
    Galatians 5:22
    “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith…” These are a measurement tools for our judgment of others heart. Without manifestation of holy spirit there can be no fruit. These are listed in I Cor. Ch.12
    find myself burdened with wondering if people I meet and family, friends are Born Again of the holy spirit. I can never know for sure with exception of hearing someone speak in tongues but that is something most people including Christians just refuse to believe and it takes much patience and learning to get someone to the point of even bringing the subject up in conversation. So, I came to the conclusion some time ago on how to deal with this personal issue.
    Proverbs 27:19
    “As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.” Ill never know for sure.”
    I Cor.2:11
    “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. ”
    The most I can do for any person is simply tell them HOW TO BE BORN AGAIN.
    Rom.10-9,10 “If thou shalt confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised them from the dead thou shalt be saved”. I speak this verse to nearly every single person I meet and continually pummel my close friends and family with the verse on a regular basis with it too. Most all of my family are catholic and stressed over whether they were saved. Not anymore. I have confronted both parents and 3 siblings directly and thank God all of them say whole heartedly they confess it and believe in Rom 10:9,10 and that gives me great comfort and I hope in some way it gives you some comfort too.

    • Hi Markiss,

      I have learned the hard way, that we are not the authors or the judges of salvation. Only God is. (Although, we ARE to warn… )

      Like you, I worry over the salvation of others, and seek for signs that they are saved. In fact, I probably worry TOO much.

      Please also remember that ‘speaking in tongues’ is not a sure sign of salvation. Satanists and demon worshipers also speak in tongues. I’m not saying that Christians that speak in tongues are demonic. I’m just saying that you cannot use the ‘speaking in tongues’ as absolute proof.

      I’ve met too many false Christians, who can ‘speak in tongues’. And, I know that they are false because their fruit was utterly vile and demonic. For instance, I consider Kenneth Copeland’s embrace of the Pope as pure evil – a true abomination.

      Okay, ’nuff said about that.

      As Paul said in Philippians 2:12:

      Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

      And, when I look at my own foolishness… I see the need for fear and trembling.

      Great comment, Markiss. Thank you!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • I made up a little diddy that I wanted to add: God looks on the heart of a man not what church he goes to.
        I consider myself an expert in the area of tongues and know how to discern the spirit filled tongues of believers as opposed to the snake handlers for one example. I am just waiting for the opportunity to teach someone else how to. Truth is not many if anyone wants to learn so I don’t push it and it certainly is not a requirement of salvation simply a manifestation of the truth in you. It has been on my heart to do a study on the subject for a while. I guess I better get to work on it.

  6. Praying for you! I also have an autoimmune, so I get it. I look forward to more articles from you. I like your writing style-it delivers really bad news in a balanced, less fearful way- which is refreshing in the ‘watchman’ community. God help us all as things heat up. Thanks for your service!

  7. John,

    You are so right about the small percentage of every denomination being truly saved. In my (methodist-ecumenical) church growing up, there was never an ‘altar call’…in fact I didn’t know what that meant the first time I heard that term.

    My brothers and I were saved as children, only because we attended summer church camps run by true believing denominations and gave our hearts to Jesus there. I shudder to think where my grandparents are, as well as most of the members there who’ve passed on…

    I’m sorry to read about your illness. I have used a lot of natural therapies over the years. Some work and some don’t. However, I did a quick search and found this page that suggests a few things for HSP.

    Also, this nutritional doctor may have information to help you. He writes a lot about autoimmune diseases. The major cause is diet and digestion problems. They respond pretty quickly to emails too.

    I’m praying for a quick healing for you!

  8. Greetings John!

    Pray that the changeover goes smoothly with little to no hiccups.

    Is your email address going to change as well?
