Strong Delusion—Defined & Avoiding It

Delusion and delusional thinking is everywhere including in Christian churchianity. The Bible warns us against delusions that threaten to deceive the strongest saints in the end times.

What is the biblical definition of delusion, how do you come out of it, avoid it and protect yourself from being led astray from the Truth of God/Elohim?

This video explores these issues and answers these questions.


I’m back from the bottom of the world—LITERALLY!

For the past month, you have not heard from me on this blog. Why? Did I die, or just simply lose interest? NO! I’m still very much alive and am still here, by YHVH’s grace, to serve his precious saints as best I can. 

So where was I?

In a place few people ever go.

ANTARCTICA! — and a few other amazing places in South America as well.

For nearly a month, Sandi and I were blessed to be able to spend time in several countries (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile plus the British overseas territory of the Falkland Islands), in addition to voyaging for several days in the waters of the Antarctic. We went from tropical jungles with summer temperatures in the mid-90s˚ F (30–35˚ C) to snow and ice and subfreezing temps in the waters of the Antarctic all in one trip! Ever try to pack clothing for an adventure like this with the luggage weight limits the airlines impose on their travelers? A challenge, to be sure, but we did it.

So what can I say about the Antarctic? There are no words. It is another world outside of this one. Etherial. Other-worldly. Majestic beyond description. Almost heavenly. Totally pristine. Spiritual. Totally unique. Enrapturing and mystifying. The pictures below give a grain of sand’s worth view of what we saw. The videos that I will begin posting shortly on my personal YouTube channel ( will tell the story a little more fully, but not much. Nothing that one can say or show will do justice. It was a totally spiritual, physical and psycho-emotional experience that one can only understand if they have experienced for themselves. 

First, we will see some views of Iguazu Falls on the border between Argentina and Brazil and close to Uruguay. This is a world-class falls that is many times larger than Niagara Falls in New York and on a par with Victoria Falls located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Africa. While Victoria Falls is taller, the cliffs over which Iguazu Falls tumbles is longer (1.7 miles or 2.7 km) and it is the largest falls complex (275 falls total) in the world. This was our first stop before embarking on our 16-day cruise out of Buenos Aires, Argentina ending in Santiago,Chile nearly a month later. For those of you who have seen America’s Grand Canyon in Arizona, you will have a sense of Iguazu’s grandeur when I say that this falls awed and amazed me as much as the Grand Canyon!

Please enjoy!

This photo shows maybe a little more than one-third of the total falls. It is impossible to capture the entire falls complex in one photo because of the twists and turns in the Paraná River.

Antarctica! (The is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg!)
The temperatures were hovering around the freezing mark, and we even had a couple of days of snow. The wind was constantly blowing off the Antarctic continent. One time with wind chill, we briefly got down to -25˚F or -32˚C, but that was only for a brief time. The rest of the time, it was warmer in our part of the Antarctic (remember, it’s the summer there now) than in most of the USA including my home in Oregon!
Sandi, my Eskimo wife and lifelong Ruth and traveling companion. On this trip, actually I was Sandi’s “Ruth” since it was her idea to come here. At first when she first proposed the trip a few years ago, I brushed it off as another one of her crazy ideas. Then she convinced me otherwise. Am I glad of this. I’ve now been in some 33 countries on six continents, and this trip beats all!

I hope you enjoyed this pictures. If you would like to see more, I invite you to stay tuned for videos on my YouTube channel. 


My Brother Warner’s Lahaina Fire Story of Selfless Love

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:31)

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. (Matt 25:31)

Please read again Matthew 25:31–46, which describes Yeshua’s judgment of the sheep and goats where he concludes,

Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. (Matt 25:31)

Like a lot of you, I have been following updates on the Lahaina Maui, Hawaii fire story and its aftermath—especially the human element. There are many unanswered questions as to how this horrific fire started, why or why not certain things happened that could have saved lives and so on. But to me, these are not the most important questions to ask. Rather, how are the people doing and what would I do were I in a similar situation?

The bottom line is that the lives of everyday people like you and me were turned upside down in a few hours. Such could happen to anyone of us in an instant. Each of us is a breath or heartbeat away from are lives being completely changed forever, if not ended. How do people in such a situation respond? What do you do? Where do you go? How do you put your life back together again? How do you cope? These are questions that go through my mind, and probably yours too if you’re a thinking and feeling person. We are living in the crazy days of the end times, so who knows what may be around the corner coming at us like a freight train! Thus it behooves us to live each day as if it were our last. With this in mind, what would Yeshua have us to do? What would he do? What did he do?

A few years ago, Sandi and I were privileged to spend a week in Ka’anapali next to Lahaina in Maui. We walked the beaches, swam in the ocean, strolled along Front Street enjoying the culture, marveled at North America’s largest banyan tree, sampled the food, purchased some precious mementos from the shops that are now ashes. I even left an important piece of my self in Maui. While body surfing in the ocean, I lost my wedding ring—it slipped off my hand as my finger brushed against some coral. Not wanting to be ringless, we bought an inexpensive koa wood metal ring from a jewelry shop on Front Street.

All that aside, and back to the human element, last night I came across this video of Warner, a native and indigenous Hawaiian telling his story of rescuing people during the fire. I have no idea if he is a Bible believing Christian or not, but this is one of the most engaging and poignant stories of godly love and sacrifice that I have ever heard. I can only hope that I would be half the man that he was were I in a similar situation!

I started watching this video and could not stop. It has challenged me deeply.

For a long time, it has been my conviction that when times get tough for the people of YHVH Elohim and we are fighting for our survival against the spirit of antichrist, the saints will come together in powerful unity and boldness and will rise to the occasion as Warner did. This will be our moment to shine the bright light of Yeshua’s love, joy, peace and hope in the lives of those around us.

In the mean time, may YHVH grant us the help and desire to begin taking baby steps to act in this manner here and now! This is the spirit of aloha and ohana that is deeply embedded in the Hawaiian culture. (Please look up the definitions of these words.) We can learn much from this cultural concept.


Surviving Without Taking the Mark of the Beast

With the recent COVID pandemic and the advent of the so-called “COVID Passport” that was required in some regions and nations, and now with the imminent emergence of the central bank digital currency (CBDC) possibly connected to one’s social credit score and implemented via digital biometric data with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) and super computers, it appears that the mark of the beast system, as predicted in the Bible (Revelation 13:16–17), is right around the corner. No one knows whether we have one year, five years or 50 years until this occurs, but make no mistake, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled or else the YHVH Elohim, the Creator of the Universe, is a liar!

Those who refuse to take the mark will be excluded from the global monetary system. In brief, they will not be able to function or survive within modern society. Where will they go? How will they survive if they cannot buy or sell? Pay their rent or mortgage, hold a job, have a bank account, pay for gas, food, clothes, be able to travel and buy insurance, pay their taxes, buy or sell anything at all? It is time to start asking oneself these questions, and then preparing ourselves for the inevitable.

Don’t forget what the Bible says: those who take the mark cannot be saved—they will permanently cut themselves off from Elohim and will be thrown into the lake of fire at the last judgment.

To be sure, the end times will be an adventure for everyone and period of great testing and faith building for the saints of Elohim. It will also be a time to spread the gospel message resulting in much revival according to the Book of Revelation. Now is the time to prepare physically and, most importantly, spiritually.

Nathan discusses these things and more in this video.
