Forsaking Not the Assembling (poem)

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together…


Forsaking Not the Assembling

God needs naught else 

to craft, create,

to draw from depths

spread infinite

from love unseen

to replicate.  


Yet here a little,

there still more,

through wombs of time

in flesh and form

He sparks to life

the countless born.


He shares His breath

with blood and bone,

opens eyes, 

imparts a soul

to search His depths

and learn their own.


Now find you those

of kindred mind,

for who seek Him

have gifts to guide

and offer, too,

His love in kind.


exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Is the Inoculation, Even As It Exists Today, the Damning “Mark of the Beast”? Two Points of View

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

Note: If you see a series of three dots (ellipses) click on them for full context. I have not placed them there and do not see them on my screen though some readers may see them on theirs, as has been reported regarding a few earlier posts.


According to a growing faction of Christians, the answer to the title question is yes.

If you take the shot that proponents of this viewpoint claim is the Mark of the Beast (MOTB) as is, right now, you have committed the unforgiveable sin.

You are damned already.

No matter if you are a believer or not.

No matter if you knew anything about this viewpoint or not.

Sorry, Charlie.

(For the very real physical dangers right now, however, see the End Notes section.)

But before I go to viewpoint #2, “Not Yet,” I will share three reasons I find this first viewpoint very problematic. Continue reading

“Chichester and area” Tour (guest post: Colin Markham)

Take a breather and tour Chichester, England.

Chichester and area


Chichester (pop. 23,731) is the County Town and administrative centre of West Sussex. It is in my estimation the perfect English cathedral town, or more properly ‘city’. All cathedral towns in England have the status of a city, even tiny Ely. Continue reading

To The Cross (poem)

To The Cross

Some come early,

some come mid;

some come in the nick of life–

finally knowing Him nearby–

as the Good Thief did. Continue reading

Update on “King Catom?…” and New “Life-Hacking Software”

Back in 2016 I wrote a post, “’King Catom’? On the “Leader” of the 4th Empire Before the Messiah’s Return”, re-posted below, based on a conjecture linking two topics: the warning in  Daniel 2 – Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream citing a fatal linkage in the “fourth kingdom” of “iron mixed with common clay”.

My conjecture had to do with all the chatter in 2016 about inserting “nano computers” inside humans. The possible relation to Daniel’s prophecy is what caught my imagination.

In light of the article linked here Moderna’s Top Scientist: ‘We Are Actually Hacking The Software Of Life’  see what you think. – PBN Continue reading

Strength in the Day of Antichrist, Part 1: “Strength in Weakness” (Guest Feature)

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

My friend and I were discussing how to proceed as followers of Jesus Christ in this day and age that, even in the so-called “free West,” reveals more and more anti-Christian sentiment.

Our focus was how to be strong in an increasingly menacing world for believers who refuse to bow to the spirit of Antichrist in today’s particular manifestations.

The Spirit of Antichrist? Today?

But isn’t the Antichrist yet to arrive on the scene, in or about chapter 13 in the book of Revelation?

Actually, he’s already here, that is to say his spirit is already here, motivating and deluding people. As Gospel writer John put it: Continue reading
