Faith and Obedience in Desperate Times

Desperate times are at our doorstep. For some, they are already here. The question on our minds is…

…What do we do when danger threatens us, our family and our neighbors?

Well, I can tell you that nothing tests your faith and obedience like a desperate situation. You might THINK that you know how  you will react, but you won’t KNOW until it happens.

Will you keep your faith and obey God, when everything falls apart?

If you don’t know the answer to that, now is the time to make sure.

Faith and Obedience in Desperate Times

Faith and Obedience in Desperate Times – The ShockCast

YouTube shortlink:

MP3 Version:


Last week’s article struck a chord with many of you, and I’m glad – since it certainly struck a chord with me. A deep one. That tsunami in 2011 was as unimaginable as it was unexpected. Oh, everyone in Japan knew that a tsunami was possible, but – until March 3rd, 2011 – it was just a theoretical threat.

That event encapsulates the challenge that we all have, in facing the future. We know that terrible catastrophe is coming. We can almost feel it. But, it’s hard to imagine what it will be like, or that it will be as bad as the Bible describes.

In fact, we really need to take this threat on faith and obey what our Lord told us to do in Luke 21:36:

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

– Luke 21:36

There is a way to escape what is coming, but you are required to watch and pray that you would be worthy to escape. It’s hard to get my mind around the idea of being ‘worthy to escape’, and it’s an unsettling idea since I do not consider myself to be worthy. However, Luke 21:36 was not a suggestion. It was a command. So, I will do my best to pray that I am worthy to escape and worthy to stand before Jesus, when the First Resurrection arrives.

If you are a regular reader of these articles or a listener to The ShockCast, then you are doing your duty to watch. You can always do more, and I encourage you to do so, if you can. But, you are obeying a command by Jesus, and that’s the point.

Believe me that the urge to disobey will come. In fact, you probably face the urge to disobey God, every day. Your actions and your words are a testament to whether you are truly obedient. And, I have failed those tests far too often.

There are times when I have…

…used foul language.

…driven like a maniac.

…spoken and acted too harshly.

…not been patient or loving.

…run, when I needed to walk, or even wait.

And, if it seems like I am just scratching the surface of my sinfulness, you’re right. There are depths to my capacity to sin that I don’t care to go into, and I shake at the thought of what I deserve. I am NOT worthy to escape what is coming, but I will still pray that I will be.

Will preparing for catastrophe help?

Absolutely, and you need to do your best to prepare. I truly believe that the command to watch was not limited to reading your newspaper or listening to The ShockCast. We really do need to put our perceptions into action. If we SEE something, we must DO something.

Unless you are brain-dead. If that’s the case, you wouldn’t be reading this in the first place.

What is the first thing that you should do?

Read your Bible and obey what it says, even if it doesn’t make sense. Lots of people like to insert exceptions to their obedience to God. In fact, we would ALL love to offer our own exceptions to our need to obey God. Think of each “Yes, but…” that goes through your mind when you see something in the Bible that you don’t want to obey.

“Yes, but…”

…my country is despicable and should not be obeyed.

…the speed limit is only a reference.

…choosing to marry an unsaved woman/man isn’t THAT bad.

And, I struggled with that last one mightily, until God sent me the woman who would be Mrs. Little. Marrying an unsaved person isn’t just a sin, it’s really, really, really, REALLY stupid. I praise God that He kept me from doing that.

Will you obey God in these rather small things?

Will you do what is right, even if it hurts?

And yes, doing things right, really hurts.

For instance, I’m currently involved in some exceptionally painful events that I would rather neglect and ignore. I saw some things, and now I have to act on what I’ve seen. And, I would have had to accept the blowback that had already begun if God had not intervened with a resolution.

It is interesting how God will sometimes resolve problems, when you step forward in obedience. He won’t always do that, but He will walk with you every single time that you do.

How about you?

Are you ready to get into the practice of obeying God, so that when the difficult times come, you’ll be ready?

Remember that the residents of northeast Japan weren’t in the habit of obeying tsunami warnings, so they weren’t ready when the tsunami swept their lives away.

Sessions fires McCabe before he can retire

You do NOT need to read the article. In fact, you know that it’s a lie from start to finish, because it’s from NBdnC News. I know because I actually TRIED to read it.

But, the main point is that McCabe got fired the way that he needed to get fired.

He should feel lucky that he’s not in jail.

He needs to be in jail.

A Dire Warning from Congressman Duffy | Dan O’Donnell | News/Talk 1130 WISN

Here’s a quote:

“Democrat candidates might be sketchy about admitting that, especially in more 50-50 seats, but of course they’re going to impeach Donald Trump,” Duffy told News/Talk 1130 WISN’s Dan O’Donnell on Friday. “Do you think that MSNBC or CNN would allow for anything less? And by the way, there aren’t that many Blue Dog Democrats left in Congress. They are radical leftist, socialist Democrats. They are like Nancy Pelosi. They are far-left people.

“That’s who’s winning their primaries, and do you think that the far-left ‘Resist’ movement base of the Democrat Party would accept anything other than impeachment?”

If this happens, then America is done. It means that the only way forward is civil war. And yes, I mean guns-and-firing-squads civil war.

This is what the far Left is pushing America into.

And, it’s going to happen – probably under Trump. America will suffer greatly, but it will rise as a darker version of what it once was. All pretense of ‘We Are Great Because We Are Good’ will be gone.

As I have said many times, there are three prophetic possibilities for America:

She is…

…The Beast

…The Beast Rider

…or, she is so destroyed that she is no longer a political power of any kind on the world stage.

She really cannot be ‘The Beast Rider’, since Revelation describes her as a city. So, there are really only two choices.

Can you figure out which one I’m hoping for?

Eric Holder to GOP: ‘You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it’

And, here is Eric ‘Dirtbag’ Holder, confirming what Congressman Duffy was saying above.

Peak Decadence: The WEST & The Fate of EMPIRE – YouTube

This is how empires rise and fall. Sir John Glubb observed that empires have a lifespan of about 250 years, and that they follow a predictable course – always ending in decadence. Always.

Well, America is following the same predictable course, with the same predictable end.

The only question in my mind, is about the survivors of the fall of this penultimate empire.

And, the one that follows… will capture the world in its iron fist.

BREAKING: Tony Podesta Creepy Photos Leaked! – YouTube

Wow. This is bad. Podesta had naked pictures of young girls on the walls all over his home. ALL. OVER. HIS. HOME.

This is sick.

Will Tony or his brother go to jail?

Don’t bet on it. They certainly think that they’ll get away with being child rapists.

China to ban citizens with bad ‘social credit’ rating from taking flights or using trains for up to a year | The Independent

Mrs. Little saw this last week, and I was wondering when it would appear in English. Well, it didn’t take long, and this is the forerunner for The Mark Of The Beast. At the moment, you are banned from traveling, if your ‘score’ is too low. But, you can bet that you will quickly be banned from buying and selling, in the near future.

Population control methods are routinely tested in countries like China or India. When they are successful, they will be used elsewhere.


I doubt that California can be saved, but Bill Whittle’s description is appropriate for the vast majority of America and Americans. Times have been good and comfortable in America for far too long, and they have made Americans weak and foolish. And, Bill Whittle ends with this quote from one of his viewers:

Bad times make strong men.

Strong men make good times.

Good times make weak men.

Weak men make bad times.

He then said that we were at line number four, and that we should get ready for line number one.

Approaching ‘grand solar minimum’ could cause global cooling | Watts Up With That?

We are still in Solar Cycle 24 and are on the downward slope of this cycle. When it bottoms, Solar Cycle 25 will begin – probably in late 2019. The problem is that this current cycle is the weakest in over a century, and we are expecting cycle 25 to be even weaker still. And, when Cycle 25 ends…

What will cycle 26 be like?

We expect Solar Cycle 26 to be the worst in centuries, a Grand Solar Minimum. The problem is that this will mean starvation and disease for more than a billion people. Empires tend to fall, epidemics stalk the globe.

To my mind, it would be the perfect time for the coming of the Antichrist. Although, we do not need to wait that long.

Teen suicide is soaring

I find it ironic that USA Today seeks for all the different answers to this problem, except the one that is right in front of our faces:

We are evil to each other.

I had to deal with it in grade school, and it was horrifying. I thank God for having parents who dragged me away from the abuse that kids were heaping upon me and others. And, the teachers were NOT helping. In fact, they were enabling the abuse.

That was forty years ago. I can only imagine what it’s like now.

We are an evil society with evil kids and evil parents. And, we are not protecting the victims of this evil.

If you have kids, it is your job to teach them to protect those who are being abused. And, if your kid is the one being abused, then you need to do everything that you can to rescue your child from the hell that he/she is living in.

Please. If you love your kids, protect them.

Empowered Xi Jinping says China ready to fight ‘bloody battle’

Gibby62 shared this in the comment section, and most would think that there is cause for concern over this, here in Taiwan. And, there IS some concern, but not as much as you would think – at least… from what I’ve seen.

Xi (pronounced ‘she’) is threatening Hong Kong and Taiwan. And, he sent their aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait to emphasize that point. Even though my apartment looks out over the north entrance to the Taiwan Strait, I did not see that aircraft carrier go by.

If the Earth were flat, I would have seen it. Just saying.

Anyway, the point is that rulers like She – er… Xi – often make speeches, loudly proclaming eternal enmity against something, while the object of their rhetoric is someone else. The problem occurs when that rhetoric goes too far, and the leader finds himself forced to actually go to war.

The Arab League made this mistake in 1948, and lost their war with Israel. Too many speeches and too much rhetoric often leads to bad outcomes.

Is that what we are looking at here with Xi Jinping?

I don’t think so.

It IS possible for Xi to invade Taiwan successfully, but it would require the complete destruction of the island, as well as the destruction of China’s place in world affairs. China is not prepared to pay that price… yet.

By the way, one of the barriers to the invasion of Taiwan is the lack of amphibious landing craft in China’s Peoples Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). They don’t have enough ships that are capable of making a contested landing of troops on Taiwan – at least, not without flattening the island, first.

Unfortunately, for Taiwan. The government here has essentially surrendered to China. They’re only discussing the terms of their surrender. And, I will continue to believe this, until I start seeing moves by the Taiwanese government to become more efficient, less corrupt and willing to invest in a cultural identity that is separate from China.

Until then, Taiwan will slowly, but surely, be reeled in by Beijing.

And, it will be Taiwan’s own fault, when it happens.



These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.

The Unsound Theory of Inflation | Armstrong Economics

Martin Armstrong makes a good point. Hyperinflation occurs due to a lack of confidence in the currency itself. If people do not believe in the value of a currency, they will get rid of it as quickly as possible, by exchanging it for something of tangible value.

In finance, confidence is everything.

Ex-Obama Campaign Director Claims Facebook Allowed Data Mining

Sick air travelers mostly likely to infect next row: study |

Those who are coughing and sneezing should be banned from flying. Those who begin to cough and sneeze while on an airplane, should be required to take medication to stop the cough and sneeze – and wear a mask. That passenger should also be relocated to an area of the plane that would reduce the risk of his/her infection being transmitted.

This is how East Asia handles epidemics, and I am tired of morons deciding that it’s okay to spread their infections.

Want to avoid the flu while flying? Try a window seat

And THIS sounds like good advice. However, Mrs. Little always gets the window seat – as is her right for having to put up with me.

Democratic, Republican voter bases are more different than ever, study finds | Politics |

I find this one to be interesting. And, it gives the reason why only a moron can be a Democrat:

The Democrats have changed the most, as the mix of voters who support them has grown less white, less religious, more college-educated, younger and more liberal over the past decade, according to the study by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.

Republican voters, by contrast, more closely reflect the demographics of an earlier, mostly white, Christian America. In one regard, the party’s voters have actually stepped slightly back in time — Republicans are less likely today than a decade ago to be college graduates, Pew found. That’s a striking fact in a country that has steadily grown more college-educated.

You can tell that the reporter writing this is a Democrat. And, it’s also proof that a college education is going to make you less intelligent, less moral and more willing to accept lies as the truth.

I am sickened by what America has become, and what it is becoming. We chose, and now we pay.

In case you did NOT know, Mueller is a dirtbag. Wow.

Right now, Trump is a distraction. Some call him savior. Others call him devil. And YOU are probably being distracted by all this.

Please don’t be. Trump is just a guy who wanted political power, and got it. He likes winning, and he won. He still likes winning, and he will try to keep doing so. He’s also smart, which means that he will probably succeed – at least, some of the time. But, he isn’t going to save America. He isn’t going to chart a new course. He isn’t going to make America great again. And, it’s becoming more and more clear that he has been lying to us.

The best that he will do, is not be as bad as the alternative. But, I’m afraid that he will be AS BAD as the alternative. He certainly looks like he’s selling Israel out.

Please get this into your head:


The sooner that you get this point, the better.

Those of you living outside of America already see this, and YOUR concern is the fallout from America’s fall. The only thing that I can point to, for you… is the Bible and Ezekiel’s Fire.

So far, it is clear that Trump’s crimes are minor, compared to that of Hillary.

Russia leak raises questions about staff undermining Trump | TheHill

Trump needs to fire more people. Here’s a quote:

The Washington Post and other outlets reported Trump had been warned in briefing materials not to congratulate the Russian leader on his reelection. Aides even included the message “DO NOT CONGRATULATE” in the president’s talking points.

But Trump went ahead and did it anyway, drawing criticism from Republicans on Capitol Hill.

This ‘security team’ needs to be either fired or reassigned to janitorial duties. Their job is NOT to tell the President what to do, but to provide their best estimate of what is happening and the repercussions that might result from certain actions.

And then, someone leaked.

People need to be fired, but I’m betting that Trump knows who they are.



I hope that you will forgive me for wanting these people dead. With a thorough trial, first to establish the facts… then, a swift execution.

God help us all.

Seventy-Six Arrested in Massive Eight State Law Enforcement Operation Against Child Exploitation

Michael shared this, and it is truly awesome news. My hope is that this process will continue and not be shot down by the dirtbags-in-charge.



What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.

Remember the generals that surround Trump.

This was not an accident.

However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.

The events that are descending upon us, will try our souls. How many of us survive those trials will depend upon your location and your preparations.

Please prepare for the worst period of time in human history. America will be ground zero, followed by Europe. Other places will be devastated, but those two areas will be hit the worst – at least, as I see it now.

No place will be safe, but there are some places that will be safer than others.

Please, prepare for the worst.

But, those who are evil?

Well, I want them to repent. I really do. I do NOT want ANYONE who is evil to suffer an eternity in Hell. But, if they refuse to repent, I want them destroyed.

There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.

I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.

So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.

My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

He’s not my favorite Israeli politician. I’m not even sure that he’s even a good politician. But, he has given results. Big ones. So, he gains my respect for that.

He has also defeated the Rothschild Socialists in Israel – so much so that they have all but disappeared.

Well done, Bibi!

Israeli-Palestinian Peace Deal Is Alive Thanks to Jared Kushner – Bloomberg

How ironic. The Palestinians have backed themselves into a corner, and now they are left with… well …nothing.

They had a chance to get everything. All that they needed to do was allow Israel to have Jerusalem – to give up their claim.

As if their ‘claim’ was worth anything, anyway.

But, the Palestinians have ‘never missed and opportunity to miss an opportunity’, so now they are being forced to concede to reality.

Unfortunately, it looks like they will keep fighting this, until Gog and Magog – which isn’t very far away.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. FYI…I have not received your newsletter in my Gmail inbox for several weeks now. In fact, the first time it happened, I did a Google search and a Frontier search and neither one admitted to knowing of your website’s existence.

    • Hi Allison,

      When it rains… it pours.

      Sorry about all that, but it appears that there has been a concerted attack on both of the servers that run Omega Shock and The Shock Letter. And, because those servers are being blocked, I can’t even send out email to warn people that I can’t send them messages.

      At the same time, I’ve been deeply involved in trying to help the church that we attend, defend itself from Satanic attack. As I write this, I am not optimistic.

      I will be doing my best to get Hotmail, Outlook, Gmail and Yahoo to stop blocking the IP addresses of BOTH servers. This kind of thing will only get worse as the days grow darker. Eventually, they might succeed in shutting me down completely. We’ll see.

      Thank you, Allison!

      Yours in Christ,

  2. I think some of this boils down to a couple things that jump forth at me. The main one is Acceptance! It is what is. If it is staring you in the face, denial will change nothing. Reality!! God’s children hopefully learn this early. It makes life so much easier if we realize that we don’t control much at all. How we handle it is key. By the way, I am pretty sure the acceptance thing in sobriety programs was borrowed from

    The other thing that has been wandering my thoughts, is where is the fear. It seems to be nonexistant. We took the Ten Commandments from our children’s sight, and look where we are now. No one fears each other, lies, deception, or the consequences of any of it. The water rises, and few consider it. “Thou shalt not bear false witness”. What are the consequences?? Not many these days, look at politics!

  3. A couple thoughts. On what happens to society when an angry mob takes over, consider how it went in both the Khmer Rouge thing in Cambodia where anyone who wore glasses was executed because it was feared that they could read; and in China – I am not sure which incident this refers to but I attended an event where 4 Chinese students who had survived Tiananmen spoke. They said that many of the “revolutionaries” were proudly illiterate and bragged about it, and the “intellectuals” were hunted like criminals. Which begs the question, how to reconcile this with the idea that our universities teach lies and kids are better off not going to college, etc …. I heard there is a Chinese proverb, and if this is true I love it, to the effect of “Every pot has two handles. Beware of the wrong one.”

    Nevertheless, I find it very easy to accept your position that the worldwide computer system will be a long way in coming and will be subject to all kinds of problems; as a former software engineer, I can testify that the streak of idiocy that runs through human nature is especially strong in corporate management. I saw the most appallingly stupid things happen over and over (spending months if not a year or more working on a very complex system, and then putting it into production without ever testing it – I kid you not) not because any of the engineers were stupid enough to do that – they were not – but because management forced them to. It was so bizarre. I still shake my head at it. A very, very bad idea came out of Harvard Business School in the late 80s that management is a skill that can be taught, and the manager does not need to have expertise in the area being managed. That is crap. These classes teach that you need to listen to the people who DO have expertise, who are on the front lines, but they never do. They quickly become arrogant and think they know what they are doing, and cost the stockholders billions of dollars. I worked at a high tech company in southern California, which you think would have known better, but it was not run by engineers. It was founded by one, but soon became conquered and infested by MBAs. The CEO was pushing a software conversion (that was a spectacle of stupidity and corruption in and of itself but I won’t take the time and space to go into it here) saying early one year that it was going to be completed by October of that year no matter what. He further said anyone talking against this objective would lose their job. We looked at each other silently, later discussing among ourselves that this was ridiculously impossible, that it broadcast to the entire company what a technical idiot the CEO was, but that no one could do anything about it. So we pondered how to do our assigned segments without getting blamed for the ultimate failure, which was inevitable. Indeed, the project finally went into production about a year and a half after the CEO’s deadline. Another good one was when they (management) wanted to interview all of the engineers about …. I forget how they worded it but they were looking for anyone critical of management. They assured us, and I think the HR people actually believed this, that it would be anonymous. But, they were so stupid it boggles the mind. We’re engineers, right? Like we don’t know our way around the database. None of the managers did. But they were still so technically clueless that they had one of us working on a new dataset with fields that would store this “anonymous” information. Like this person would not immediately tell the rest of us. I was more forthright than most and told my interviewer, do not think for one minute we believe this is anonymous when you are asking us to store this information in the employee’s records. She was shocked. One more story and then I will stop. For now. This company had the attitude, expressed from the very top, that “If you’re here more than 5 years, it means no one else wants you!!” Which means they have no idea what lengthy experience is worth, especially in regards to the specialized applications this company did. They thought anything shiny and new was better than what they bought last year. Including employees. They would lay off the most experienced ones, who often were paid less than half that of the shiny new grads, and here is how it worked for them. They had this new network engineer, wet behind the ears. He did not understand the difference between a computer and a file server. They looked the same to him, like big washing machines I suppose. And one day he was working on something and tried to divert all the stuff a computer was doing to a file server. For the uninitiated, a computer – in the most general of terms – is for computing, and the wiring is optimized for number crunching. A file server is optimized for moving blocks of information in and out. This was a huge company, I supported credit card processing and the customer dataset alone had over 80 million records. Of course, the file server crashed and the whole system fell to its knees.

    I could tell war stories all day. But I will spare you. The point is, just as John says, do not attribute intelligence or competence to these people. When you know what goes on behind the scenes, you realize it will be a miracle if they can ever pull it off, and when they do, I am guessing it will have to be specifically guided by satan, who actually IS rather intelligent. Until then ……. John, who could ever forget the PDP-11 and the Halt Catch Fire instruction set?

    I looked up the PDP 11 (I never worked on one, I just heard the stories) and per Wikipedia that was an apocryphal story, however it caught on as a reference to when one circuit is grossly overloaded. Still, it was most amusing.

    • Hi DRG,

      I’m sorry that we aren’t neighbors. I would love to swap ‘war stories’.

      I have the unique experience of being both an MBA and a programmer – although, I never did very much programming, professionally. And, I am horrified by some of the stuff that I’ve seen.

      No testing before launch?


      This reminds me of The Peter Principle, and I had forgotten about it until your comment. Here’s the Wikipedia entry for it:

      And then, I saw that there was a ‘software development’ version:

      THAT. IS. SO. TRUE!!!

      And, right now, the world is being run on systems that are very close to that ‘Software Peter Principle’. Your mention of the IBM/360 is one case in point, since OS/360 is horribly obsolete – but still running.

      I once worked for a company that developed a front-end to the OS/360. I am scarred for life.

      Luckily, I ‘cut my teeth’ on UNIX and the x86 architecture, so I didn’t get my brain scrambled by IBM – except for that one experience with OS/360. (I will never do that again. EVER.)

      The irony about Communist revolutions and education is that the leaders of these revolutions were all highly educated. They just could not tolerate anyone else who also was educated, since they would have had ideas that competed with their own.

      Competing ideas is verboten, to the dictators of this world.

      The other thing to think about is the ebb and flow – or rhythm – of education. It seems to oscillate back and forth across a median sense of reality. Public education seems to swerve back and forth between hyper-realism to hyper-fantasy, and back – never seeming to stay connected to what reality actually is.

      Then, let’s add yet another bit of complexity: all the ‘great’ universities started out as seminaries.

      Okay, I’ll stop here.

      Excellent comment, DRG. I hadn’t thought of The Peter Principle in a while.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Founder’s Syndrome, eh? Thanks for that. Really helps explains things. Very timely, VERY timely indeed. Here’s to being strong and courageous in Him.

        • Hi T2L,

          I have seen Founder’s Syndrome at work, and there’s literally nothing that you can do except escape. But, the damage…

          I am so sorry for all who are caught by certain kinds of groups that suffer from this ‘syndrome’. Putting their lives back together and then limping home.

          It’s hard, but God has His reasons. Always. And, there are never any ‘mistakes’ that God doesn’t use for His glory and for His purpose in the lives of victims. Those who suffer will one day become a source of strength for those who need it.

          Oh, and don’t get me started on those who seek to prey upon our weaknesses, claiming that they are just ‘trying to help’. God calls them wolves, but I’ve recently been calling them snakes. Either way, they will destroy your life and the lives of those who you love – if you don’t build high walls and fortifications against them.

          I am a walking, talking example. In fact, a very recent example. Painfully so. (shiver)

          God bless you, T2L. Your input is always a blessing.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  4. Greetings,

    I want to add something that many of us suffer the repercussions from, but is not brought up in the church body much: soul ties (knitting together of souls).

    There are the good ones formed of marriage and close Godly friendships, and the bad ones which are formed outside of the will of God.

    Sex is not the only way soul ties get formed, and we need to take great care with our relationships and who we let in close.

    Encouraging the good ones and breaking the bad ones are essential and cannot be accomplished without our LORD and Saviour. It is through Him we gain the power and strength to break the bad ones.

    Here is a couple articles I have found which do a good job explaining:

    A more simple prayer to break them is:

    “I now renounce and loose myself from any ungodly soul ties formed between myself and _______, and I break these ungodly soul ties in Jesus’ name!”

    Some ties are more firmly entrenched than others and can take longer to break. It is painful, but less so than having God break it for you. Just keep at it and don’t give up hope. We are free through the blood and sacrifice of our LORD Jesus: hang on to Him and don’t let go!

    I hope and pray this is of help, and I understand and empathize through personal experience.


  5. It was the Fullerton informer that has that new 5G information.

    Desperate times?? I call them days of woe. (Where else could I get all these “Tales of Woe”). It feels like I am being prepared for something, that I just can’t fathom. Hey, where on the Revelation timeline is Woe #1 going to show up. Satan’s arrival?

    You talk about feeling unworthy, I get that all the time, but the most puzzling part about it is; with the sins of David,Solomon, and trials like Job, haunting me. Why me!! Where, what, why, and how come is GOD’S presence always so near and so obvious. I feel like a little kid that all I can do is tremble at the obvious. I watch his handiwork every day. I have watched life explode continually for years, and it phases me, but not much. Common sense says go the opposite way, but somehow I knew I was not going that way, and have watched HIM working ever since, on all of them. ME TOO!! I don’t know how to explain it. If this were SATAN at work he wouldn’t appreciate all the Truth, humility, and GODLINESS that is getting shoved into these peoples lives. It is really WAY AWESOME. I guess when we get there we might be able to see the significance of HIS work in the lives of tiny people. But, Hey, I guess I have come a long way since HE started working on me. Just because HE washed me white as snow, don’t mean I forget the filthy rags. Again, I say REJOICE!!!

  6. John,
    IMHO the far left here in the U.S. has gone mad,literally.I am an old, 69 years, Vietnam vet,my earthly father garnered 13 battle stars in the pacific,my grandfather was a marine in WWI,my two GGGF were infantry men for the North in the civil war,my GF before them was a Carnahan, who entertained George Washington at his home and fought under him in the Revolutionary War,my two sons served on aircraft carriers,one picked up survivors at Banda Aceh,the other a helicopter first responder at Fukushima. My family are believers in Jesus Christ,we do not fear death, but welcome going home to be with our Savior.
    So to any movement,country,or religion who wants to trash our Lord,take our land and kill our people,I say,come get some (expletive),bring your lunch.

      • Thanks for the insult John,my whole family has risked their lives defending the
        U.S. throughout it’s history,and I get a lecture from you like I’m an armed revolutionary,Give me a break.That’s the same response I got when I came home from Nam,some things never change.FWIW the mama sans cried when I left.I
        wasn’t a baby-killer.You guys who never served don’t get it.At least you didn’t condemn me to hell ,so I guess I’m lucky.

        • Dear Sir,

          Have carefully read through the comments and John did not insult you, he was merely cautioning against how we react to what is coming in light of the Word of God.

          Since an insult was construed, you responded in kind: how is that helpful? If you have read this newsletter for any length of time, you may remember John’s family has served this country as well all the way back to the beginning.

          No, people who haven’t served don’t get it, but putting them down for not understanding won’t help either. Is someone lesser because they haven’t served? Not all are called and God is no repecter of persons.

          My father-in-law served in Vietnam as well. He did not talk about it. We didn’t know he was decorated until he finally took my husband aside privately in his later life.

          It is an honor to serve and protect, but I would also caution against allowing it to go to one’s head. It is too easy to get prideful, in the wrong way. God has blessed us with different gifts, and one person is not better than another. We need to give Him the glory and honor for what He has given us. It sounds like your family has been blessed.

          Take care Brother and thank you for what you have done for our country,


          • Jennifer,
            I agree with you,I was wrong,it did come across like you, and I guess John, perceived it.I think John shoots from the lip sometimes, as I do,I already asked our Father for forgiveness for baiting John,I wanted a fight but backed down, as I was afraid I would cause John to sin, as I did.John was right,I have had an anger problem all my life,and he picked up on it immediately.I reek of spiritual pride also,so to you John,and anyone else I have offended please forgive me.I’m sure my service was as nothing compared to your father-in-law and my ancestors,and fwiw I don’t tell people either because I am not worthy, other Vietnam vets are.
            I was a lousy soldier,so you needn’t thank me for anything.This is the
            first and last time I stated any of this publicly.I am obviously a lousy

    Wanted to share this Hymn.
    Tis so Sweet
    lyrics by Louisa M. R. Stead.[1] The lyrics were written in 1882. They appeared in Stead’s Songs of Triumph.
    According to the story: It was a beautiful sunny day. Louisa M. Stead, her husband, and her daughter Lily, decided to go for a picnic. They went picnicking on Long Island Sound. While having their picnic, the Steads heard a scream. It was from a young boy. Mr. Stead ran to the rescue. Louisa Stead and young Lily watched helplessly as Mr. Stead and the boy drowned. Their troubles were not over yet, however, and without her husband, Mrs. Stead became very poor and destitute. Yet God never left her. He provided for her always and she and her daughter made it through. Louisa learned to trust God, and thus the words to the song ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.’ Shortly after this incident, Louisa and her daughter Lily moved to South Africa where they became missionaries.

    The song is included in many hymnals and has been recorded by many artists.

    May the Lord Bless and Keep you


    Yet another interesting post from Armstrong, on the strategic importance of Syria. Also interesting is the section about 2/3 the way down on how the only known surviving scepter of a Roman Emperor, at a time when they claimed to rule the world, includes an image of the world on top of the scepter, and it is – wait for it – a sphere. China knew this also……

  9. Can you recommend a good Church in Taiwan (Taipei area) ? My son is moving there for 3 months to help a friend out with his business. His basic theology is good, but he does not attend Church. Maybe even an informal group that meets together.

    • Hi Joe,

      I’ve heard good things about this church:

      In fact, we’ll be there this coming Sunday. We are leaving our old church, after it made some rather questionable decisions.

      Grace Church also has a Facebook page:

      I have good friends who go there, so I’m sure that it’s a pretty good church. Oh, and full of English speakers.

      We might have moved down to Hualien, by the time that your son makes it here. But, if not, I’ll be the tall guy with white hair standing next to the most beautiful woman on the planet.

      Oh, and here is a directory of religious institutions:

      That website is also a great site for all things Taiwanese, if your son has questions.

      Let me know if you also have any other questions, Joe.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  10. Hi John

    First of all – I’ve been receiving your articles for the past 2 years – and must admit that every time I am reading your articles it give me goose-pumps. Thanx for trying to be as honest as possible – Well for the last month or so I Also did not get my weekly fix of your newsletter – same time I was sick and in hospital -so I did not have the strength to go look for it – but I know I was really sad about it – First I thought -something happen to you – and that scared me … next thought was that someone /something does not want me to receive your messages … the last thought being true – I’ve read on your website that you say OUTLOOK AND YAHOO block your posts – but I just want to ad that I am with gmail and the blocked you there as well – I JUST WANT TO PRAISE GOD – IN THE NAME OF MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST – that I went on your website and found all the missed articles – My concern however is – what is the agenda behind this and who? As I sit here typing this message – I get a very strange feeling of being watched – I do believe you must be a super threat to “someone”!!! So you must be on the right track John … and I am really going to make more time for God and His Word … but saying so – I know its going to be tough – I am going to get attack – I am only relying on God to show me the truth and to lead me in the truth – because it is a real struggle to find truth in any form these days … its getting harder by the day – but I believe that if one seek truth truly and with all your heart … and I mean God’s truth – That God will not only show you the truth he will reveal it to you in His great Mercy.

    I also read your article on South Africa – and yes John, things are really – really bad this side – for the first time in my nearly 44 years in my beloved country – I feel lost and hopeless – making my depression worse by the day … I KNOW in my heart that the situation in South Africa is also a sign of the END … tribulation for sure – and I pleat with God that when the time comes – for Him to have Mercy for my family and all His true children … because I can see the down is upon us. It is with great pleasure in my heart – to send you this letter and by God’s Grace you will receive it.

    From a kind of Autumn South Africa


    Marietjie Nel – (Afrikaans name) 🙂

    PS! Sorry for any grammar / spelling mistakes.

    • Hi Marietjie Nel,

      I am so sorry that you’ve been in hospital. My sincere hope and prayer is that you will make a full recovery.

      And, I’m also sorry that you are being blocked. This problem crops up, every once in a while, but it has never been this bad before.

      I believe that part of the problem lies with those who are mean-spirited, who do more than just unsubscribe, but also report The Shock Letter as spam, in an attempt to damage the newsletter.

      However, I also believe that there is a bigger attempt to block newsletters like mine, to shut down your ability to get news that hasn’t been filtered by the mainstream media.

      I am both glad and concerned to find another reader in South Africa. Glad, because I rejoice that Omega Shock is reaching South Africa. Concerned, because I worry about all of our brothers and sisters who are in harm’s way.

      All of you are important to me.

      God bless you, Marietjie. May the Lord answer your prayers and keep you and your family safe.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  11. John, thanks for all the hard work. Seems so many of us are sensing being ‘in transition’. The title ‘unmooring’ resonates a personal word God gave to me. Many good articles and links. Will donate as soon as I make some sales! Your faith and steadfastness are inspirational. I feel like I know you and the Mrs. After all, we are in the same family, even though I am in Califorgery and you in Taiwan. This light, momentary affliction will prove worth it’s eternal weight in glory. My money is on that. And thanks for all the big writer words in your articles I get to look up. This way I can use them in discussions when I want to shut down people with twice my education and only halff my IQ. Full order of humility please. :).
