Website News Hiatus

Dear Friends,

April 16 was my final news posting on a daily basis, but may post things of particular interest a few times a week. To some of you, this will be a surprise. To friends, you knew this was coming. Burnout. Frankly, you can read every single piece of news we post from various new agencies. It just takes about 6 hours a day to scurry around, see what's important and ferret out if it's junk or not. That is the real work.

Every day it's effortless to find news articles that fill Hall of Shame and Crazyville – often more than what fits regular news categories. What does that say? It becomes ever more clear humanity is in deep trouble. We have abdicated Christ and decency, and opted for the shady side of life. In researching news, this has been a huge personal wake-up and shows exactly where we are in prophecy. Approaching the End Of Days.

Time is short. War is coming in our seemingly peaceful world. The New World Order will impose its rule. A market and USD crash is imminent. Things you can only envision in your worst nightmares are waiting if you've read our news. Dissension is here. War between the people and government is clashing. Where this goes, anarchy follows. Never has there been such a time, not since 1774 when government generated such disgust and sometimes – downright hatred.

The Bundy debacle spells it clearly. You must prepare your family and friends, and wake up neighbors as it will be about those who band together as one with purpose. We have arrived at 2 Timothy 3:1-4 that says: "There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."

The world has arrived in general and America in particular.

We have family and friends that we need to prepare. People are willfully snoozing. I have written about these times for 2 decades now, in a free daily newsletter for 5 years, in books and commentaries and articles on our websites. No one who is a regular visitor can say they haven't been encouraged to prepare on both spiritual and physical levels. Stan is much better at preparing folks on the spiritual level. The two us research and write in various areas; we make a good team. We fill in each other's gaps. Yet, you can't have one without the other.

I am worn out – to a firecracker fizzle – and need time and space beyond 5 weeks off. I didn't recognize this complete depletion till last night in the kitchen. Yes, that sounds silly, but in Oprah's terms it was an 'aha' moment. I'm not about to suck down drugs or booze for escape, so time off it is.

We wish and pray for you the best and the most complete life in Christ. Time is very short so there's not a lot of point wasting it on posting news. Enjoy your family. Appreciate lovingly, your spouse. Don't pick apart minutia that bugs you. It matters not. Instead, thank God you have the most wonderful partner in the world. Forgive people and let silly stuff fall by the wayside. In the grand scheme of things, it's not important.

In time remaining, Stan has just weeks to prepare his lecture for the prophesy conference in Colorado Springs this July and I will get to breathe in 'real life' like I haven't done for many years. Stan will continue to give interviews and lectures, which will be announced at the top of this column like always. I will continue to research and write – and maybe post news of import occasionally.

There's one last article in the gardening series to finish and it will be posted here.

Whether or not to resume full-time news posting will be re-examined at the end of Summer. Maybe by then, the picture will be clearer.

In these latter days, I have two books waiting to be written, but it's impossible to write with few hours a day to dedicate and with a heart weighted down by 'news'. These are important books, which will be encouraging, an uplift, something far more valuable that posting distressing, depressing events. Anyone can do that. There is a time for warning, which we have done for 20 years, and then a time for encouraging people in the battles we must meet. That time has come.

Please feel free to write, ask questions, whatever you need. We are here. Our door is open. We have not deserted you, but are treading that last path. May God be with you and protect you. Maranatha!

Be blessed in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He IS coming soon! BELIEVE IT!FEEL IT! KNOW IT! Christ comes soon. —Holly
