Who Is Stephen Paddock?

Joseph Herrin (10-17-2017)

Do you feel like you know Stephen Paddock? On October 1st he was made out to be one of the worst men in the world. He is reported to have shot and killed 58 people and injured over 527 from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you believe what the mainstream news reports are saying you will likely say “good riddance” to a man who caused more carnage than almost any other person on the planet.

The news has been full of stories of men like Harvey Weinstein who have made a nuisance of themselves preying upon women. I am not saying the stories of Harvey Weinstein are wrong. What I am doing is questioning why the New York Times is bringing out the story now? Harvey Weinstein has been doing his worst at being a criminal woman abuser for more than three decades. Is his story perhaps intended to take some of the focus off of Stephen Paddock? Some newspapers have even linked the story of Paddock to Weinstein.

The global corporate media is condemning Stephen Paddock in such a way that no one would dare say he was a good man. Yet that is how his friends are describing him. The woman in the picture with him at the top of this page was a good friend of Paddock’s. Her name is Lisa Crawford. She worked as his property manager for 6 years, ending in 2012. Her friendship did not end though. She kept up with him and spent time with him. She said when she was his property manager that he would really care if people were having a hard time paying bills. He wanted people to be happy. There was never any evidence that he would have ever shot people.

She was very broken up when she heard he had died. She is not the only person who was surprised at what the government said about him. Almost all the people who knew him were greatly surprised.

The reason it had never occurred to these people was because he was not planning any violence. The violence was a planned act of the government. Donald Trump is as much a part of this atrocity as George Bush was a part of 9/11.

It has already been reported (not by the mainstream press) that there was more than one shooter at the event in Las Vegas. Many people heard multiple shooters, and quite a few took video on their phones that gives evidence of more than one shooter.







In another common sign where large corporations are involved one need only look at the stock of the companies. James Murren, CEO of MGM, owners of Mandalay Bay, sold off his stock in the months preceding the shooting.

On Thursday, September 7th, James Murren sold 259,760 shares of MGM Resorts International stock. The stock was sold at an average price of $34.19, for a total transaction of $8,881,194.40.
On Wednesday, August 9th, James Murren sold 57,269 shares of MGM Resorts International stock. The shares were sold at an average price of $31.54, for a total transaction of $1,806,264.26.
On Monday, July 31st, James Murren sold 57,269 shares of MGM Resorts International stock. The shares were sold at an average price of $33.05, for a total transaction of $1,892,740.45.

There were other officers who sold off MGM company stock as well. George Soros also placed puts on 1.35 million MGM stocks in the 60 days preceding the shooting.


Another point that should be considered is where this tragedy occurred. It happened in Las Vegas which is called “Sin City.” Not only this, but looking directly at the land that the concert was held on was the Las Vegas Luxor hotel and casino. It had in direct order an obelisk, a sphinx, and a model of the Great Pyramid of Giza looking directly onto the shooting range.

Just excuse the line that says the gunman fired from the 32nd floor. In truth there was a group of gunmen, and they were scattered throughout the area. Do you remember what happened on August 21st of this year. The total solar eclipse over the United States of America took place. It was the first one in a hundred years. The point at which it lasted the longest is also the point that a follow-up total solar eclipse will cross the line of the first one in the year 2024. It is in a region called Little Egypt, which is in Southern Illinois.

Do any of you think there is a chance that this solar eclipse had anything to do with this tragedy in Las Vegas occurring directly across from the Luxor Casino and Hotel? I do. Here are a couple of photos that I wrote about in light of the solar eclipse.

Saluki Stadium Pyramid, Carbondale, Illinois

Just one week after the Solar Eclipse a major hurricane struck the United States. It made landfall just to the east of Corpus Christi, Texas. I wrote an article just prior to this that stated that Corpus Christi had the following street names in it.

Egyptian Drive
Egyptian Circle
Pharaoh Drive
Cleopatra Drive
Euphrates Drive
Delta Drive
Pyramid Drive
Sahara Drive
Alexandria Drive
Suez Drive
Aswan Drive
Nile Drive
Hathor Drive
Cairo Drive
Karnak Drive
Luxor Drive
Memphis Drive
King Tut Dive
Crescent Drive
Clarion Drive
Bernice Drive

Now we have the Las Vegas shooting, and we can be sure that Stephen Paddock was not the mastermind of it. One more item regarding the shooting I would like to mention is that it has been reported on 4chan (an Internet site) that a man named John was giving some warnings about what was soon to happen in Las Vegas. These messages were reported 3 weeks before the shooting.

look i feel bad for some of you on this website. so i’ll let you in on a little secret. if you live in las vegas or henderson stay inside tomorrow. don’t go anywhere where there are large groups of people. also if you see three blacks vans parked next to each other immediately leave the area. you’re welcome

it’s called the “high incident project”. they want to make the american public think that places with extremely high security aren’t safe. they are trying to create more regulations. you will see laws proposed within the next few years to put up more metal detectors and other security devices. media and politicians will be saying places with lots of police need even more police. i can’t guarantee anything will happen tomorrow but las vegas is on their minds.

if their plan is successful state of nevada will pass a law in the future making all casinos have mandatory metal detectors and backscatter machines. soon after a federal law will be passed to put these machines in universities, high schools, federal buildings, you name it. osi systems and chertoff are the main producers of these machines. sometime around 2020 chertoff and osi will merge into a single company. after they merge the owners will sell off all their stock and make billions in profit. mr chertoff has been in contact with sheldon adelson. mr adelson will become a huge sponsor of these machines and he will be the first to put them in his casinos when the law passes. this is my last message for now. don’t expect me to return anytime soon

The casino has already ordered the metal detectors. Whoever John is, the thing is going just as he said.

At this point I would ask you again, “Do you feel like you know Stephen Paddock?” “Do you think all of the things the corporate media has said about him are true?” If you do not then I want you to read the next blog that shows that this was a dark Satanic celebration with some very evil ends. The days are getting very near the end. Satan is pulling out the stops. He is doing worse things and getting men to agree with him.

Pornography - Part Three

Joseph Herrin (10-12-2017)

Pornography. It’s time for a change.

When I wrote about porn the first time I said I was installing Content Protect, but I did not notice it was sold only to companies. The fewest licenses I could get for Content Protect was 5. I did a little checking around and found out that Net Nanny is the same program as Content Protect. They are both put out by Content Watch. Net Nanny has the Internet Categories that are found in Content Protect, and Nudity is automatically blocked when it installs.


Net Nanny can be purchased for $27.99 at this time. Just add the code RETAIL30 in the appropriate spot. This will drop the price from $39.99. If you need additional licenses you can purchase them online. This is a one year subscription. It is definitely worth it.

I have wondered why I have only had one person write to me and ask about Content Protect. About 6 people have written to me total. It makes me think that not too many people are taking the matter seriously. Of course I don’t expect everyone to tell me about their plans, but I would think that more than one person would to come across the same problem this brother wrote to me about. Content Protect is a business product, and it is an excellent solution for those who need 5 different people enrolled. It is quite a bit more expensive than Net Nanny though.

Once you get the program installed, you may want to go to the Administrative Console to make changes. The changes can be made exactly as they were done in Content Protect. The only difference is the log in screen. They have added a Net Nanny login. If you have difficulty finding out how to get to the Administrative Console you just need to go to the system tray and click there (if you have Windows).

Admin Console

Setting up the categories is all you need to do if its just for one person. Setting up a range of users is necessary if you are doing it for a family. It’s a simple process that even I can do.

I can see that it is about to get a whole lot more sleazy on the web. If you haven’t safeguarded yourself against it yet, now is the time to do so. Now is the time to do so! NOW IS THE TIME TO DO SO!

Joseph Herrin (10-09-2017)


About 16 years ago I was just starting out in ministry. I didn’t know how many books Yahshua would have me to write. I had only written one so far, but I had it on my heart to write the book titled Sabbath. I had no idea the Father would have me write more than 20 books, and many smaller writings. The blog site called the Parables Blog was still off in the future about 7 years. I had just the Internet site called Heart4God.

I was 40 years old. I say the book Sabbath was on my heart to write. It wasn’t what the word Sabbath brings to most people’s minds, however. Even today I find that most people who hear the word Sabbath don’t think anything of the parables that are hidden in it. The Sabbath is such an important thing for most people, but few ever get beyond what was done in the Old Testament. Most people when they think of Sabbath they are reminded that one day out of seven the Israelites were not permitted to do any work. The laws regarding Sabbath were so strict that a person was to be stoned to death for doing any work on that day.

When I was raised in the Conservative Baptist Church I heard plenty about the Sabbath. The parables regarding the Sabbath were unknown to them however. They surely didn’t think the Sabbath was a law to kill over, but they did take it seriously. The church always spoke of meeting on the Sabbath, and my family was one that rarely ever missed a day. Sabbath to them had been corrupted to mean Sunday. The true Sabbath was Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset, but I never heard that explained at church unless we were reading the first chapter of Genesis. There it was evident that the day started in the evening and went until the next evening. Sabbath was the seventh day of the week when Yahweh did no work, which was why we were to do no work either.

It is amazing that as old as the earth is, that seven days make up the week. Though certain countries have tried to make their weeks based on other values, such as 10, they have always gone back to seven. Mankind would not function as well based on other values. The French attempted a 10 day calendar after the revolution, but it only lasted about 12 years. The month that we now use is a poor divider of time. The months range from 28 to 31 days, depending upon which month was honored the most. Longer months would steal days from shorter months. The months were named after Roman’s, Roman gods, and periods of purity. The fact that we still use a Roman calendar is evidence that Satan is alive and active.

The Biblical calendar originally had days that were numbered “the first, the second, the third, ..., the seventh.” The days of the week were numbered according to their day of creation. It took Yahweh six days to create all things, and on the seventh day He rested. Equally, the months of the year in the Bible were lunar. Each month began with the sliver of the new moon showing, and ended with it disappearing. It was 28 days. They were called “the first month, the second month,” and so on. There were 13 months in a year, which equates to 364 days. The fact that we have months that are named in the Bible is a result of Israel being taken captive to Babylon. The months of the Hebrew calendar are all Babylonian names.

There was an attempt to change the calendar back around the 1930's. The League of Nations at one time was considering 185 different calendars. Some could have had much more reason to them than the Roman one we now use. Still, it has seven days of the week, even if the days are named after Roman gods.

So what about the Sabbath day, or Saturday (Saturn’s Day). In Hebrew Sabbath means seventh or rest. That makes perfect sense if you are taking the Biblical meaning for the day. Does this mean we are supposed to rest every seventh day? If you are a Seventh Day Adventist you may think so. They have missed all the parables in the day though. Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah said that He was Lord of the Sabbath. Let’s take a quick look at the meaning in the New Testament. Christ said:

John 5:30
"I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

John 8:28
Yahshua therefore said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.”

John 8:42
Yahshua said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me; for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.

John 12:49
"For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak.”

John 14:10
"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.”

Sabbath is doing nothing of our own initiative. It is doing only what the Father appointed us to do. This is what Yahshua Messiah did every day of His life. Yahshua said that He did nothing of His own initiative. He also said He did not come on His own initiative. He said He did only what the Father commanded Him. He was so perfect in this that He said He did not even speak a word on His own initiative. Would you not say He was Lord of the Sabbath?

Yahshua gave this command to all who would be like Him.

Matthew 7:21-23
Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’”

Who will enter into the kingdom of heaven? He who does the will of the Father who is in heaven. Are you not called to enter into heaven? Christ could not do the Father’s will by prophesying, by casting out demons, by performing many miracles. He only did the Father’s will in each case if the Father was directing Him to do it. When He went to the pool of Bethsaida and healed one man that had been there for many years, He could have healed many people, but God had not told Him to. How many of us perform works that we say are for Yahshua/Jesus and He has not commanded them.

Let us look at the instructions of the apostles to see if they taught the same thing.

Hebrews 4:9-11
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Have you ceased from your works? Have you ceased from your works as God ceased from His? People of God, this is mighty. This is powerful. The whole church is largely doing their own works. Only a remnant portion are doing the works of the One who is in Heaven. This is what the last verse is about. The Word of God is able to test your heart. Is what you are doing the will of the Father?

I had this on my heart to write 16 years ago, and it is still on my heart. Won’t you answer the question of the Lord? Will you speak a word of your own initiative? Will you do anything of your own initiative? Or will you do the will of the One who is in heaven?

Pornography - Part Two

Joseph Herrin (10-05-2017)

Pornography is everywhere. Do you have boys at home under the age of 18? Do they have a web enabled computer? Do they have a smart phone, or a tablet? Chances are they have been exposed to pornography. I was 13 years old in a day before personal computers, and I was exposed to pornography.

What does it mean to be exposed to pornography? Are you sure the pornography is going to be between a guy and a girl? That is bad enough. Perhaps it is between two or more guys. Two weeks ago I received a letter from one of my past contributors. He lives in another country and is among the well to do. He wrote to ask for help with his son who is 18 years old. His son announced to him that he was gay and he had a homosexual boyfriend on the Internet. They were separated by several thousand miles, but he said he chatted with this person every day and had “cyber sex” with him.

People of God, I do not share these things with you for no purpose. I share that you might take steps to rescue your families from hell. It takes only a little time. Setup the software on all the computers that the individuals in your family have. If you are the man of the house, don’t take ‘no’ for an answer. My father was a Christian man. What a difference it would have made if he asked me what I was doing every day. Instead, he came home from work, and on Wednesday he would take us to church. There was no talking to us about what we were encountering in life.

Please know that it wasn’t because my father was a mean and cold man. He was saved when I was 3 years old, and my mother with him. But he had been raised by a hard man. His mother died when he was 10 years old, and his mother-in-law never had the same relationship with him. He accepted much abuse from his father, but loved him just the same. As an adult he made his home in Oregon and his father lived in Georgia. He returned to Georgia when I was 15. His father died from tuberculosis not many years later. My father had never learned to be a hands on dad. Even with the example of many godly fathers in the Bible it did not catch on. I grew up with a hands off dad. He provided well for us as a family, and took us to church, but that was it.

I want you to know that there are going to be no hands off fathers who win the war on morals with their boys. A father who gives a son a computer, smart phone, or tablet cannot expect them to stay focused on moral entities. If you are going to be an outsider to your children’s lives, then you are going to watch them fall into immorality. You don’t have any promises about the results if you are an inside dad, but at least you will have no responsibility if they turn to follow Satan. It is precious few who will follow the Lord with a whole heart.

Jeremiah 3:14-15
“Return, O backsliding children," says Yahweh; "for I am married to you. I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.”

Do you think such a thing is too hard? Is it overly difficult? Lock up your computer. You spend so much time on it, what is one hour to set it up? If you need help, get help. There are a lot of computer savvy people today. You must have one friend or associate who is knowledgeable with computers. I will supply you with a review of ten of these programs again.


Suppose you do not like Internet filtering software. There are other solutions. There is a type of program that does not filter, but rather forms an accountability role with another godly person. The most popular of this type of program is called Covenant Eyes.

This type of program would require a very good accountability partner, and it is not free. It sends reports to family and/or friends regarding your viewing history. It will work on all types of devices. It also includes some filtering if you pay for it. Covenant Eyes runs at $10.99 a month for an individual, or $15.99 a month for a family.


There are other programs like this. One of them is Ever Accountable. It runs at $6.99 a month for an individual, and $9.99 for a family.


There are additionally many programs that are built for children, but a couple are for people of any age. These are largely different programs in that they block harmful sites or content. Covenant Eyes received a low score on this page because it is built different.


I personally prefer the program Content Protect. It is a very good program sold to tens of thousands of companies. It works well for me and is only $39.99. Don’t just complain about all of the pornographic pictures on the web. Get rid of them. Children can’t be expected to have the moral strength to win this war with huge Internet companies that are everywhere. Adults shouldn’t put themselves in places they can be attacked. I didn’t know these programs were available a month ago. Now that I know I will gladly have one on my computer (Content Protect). Won’t you?

If one understands the Internet, and knows that it is a network with many tie-ins to the government, they would perhaps be more careful with it. The data that goes out over the Internet is routed through many different routers and switches. These routers are built by companies like Cisco, Juniper Networks, Arista, and Hewlett Packard. They have back doors built in to them to allow government agencies like the NSA to constantly monitor them. Some of the biggest sites on the Internet are CIA controlled. These include Google, YouTube, Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo, and many others.


If you read the article on how the CIA made Google, you can skip the first part about Charlie Hebdo. It is misleading, for Charlie Hebdo was one of the clearest cases of the government aristocracy pulling a quick one over they eyes of the people. I merely share the article to show you the government’s participation in creating global corporations that serve a purpose of evil.

The point I would like to make is that any company formed by the global corporatocracy is not going to be moral. Google’s moniker may be “Don’t be evil,” but they are the leading champion of evil this day. They also own YouTube, and the two of them make up the number one and number two sites on the Internet. YouTube may be supposed to have no nudity on it, but it is full of it. They only remove it when someone complains about it. And Google make no bones about the pornography they display. Why does the world’s largest site offer up so much pornography? Why does it not condemn homosexual images? The answer to that may have something to do with its location in San Francisco. Mountain View, California is a bedroom community of San Francisco. Google also have additional office space in San Francisco. “Don’t be evil” could have been the theme for Sodom and Gomorrah. All you have to do is call evil good and good evil.

Isaiah 5:20-21
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

San Francisco may be the center of Google’s home, but she has additional offices all over the United States and across the world.

Google USA

Google Europe

Google Asia

This spread across the whole world is a trait of Google. It is a trait of the global corporatocracy. Look at the list of busiest sites in the world. Google has more sites in the top 100 than the number of top porn sites. But then they are one and the same.


If that is not enough, look at the number 5 busiest website. Wikipedia has lots of porn as well. They have a whole run of entries on sexuality, sexual positions, and other immoral things. Each of them features graphics and pictures of highly immoral things. I cannot pull them up, because they are forbidden with the software I have (Content Protect). I can pull up different subjects though.

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia of the whole world. It was founded by Jimmy Wales. In order to keep a low profile and appear as a unprejudiced Encyclopedia founder, Jimmy Wales is critical of any of Wikipedia’s contributors appearing to have government ties. His first “Wikipedian of the Year” went to a man who was from Kazakhstan. A few years later the man was appointed deputy governor of Kazakhstan’s Kyzylorda region. Jimmy Wales has gone through numerous contortions in denying any knowledge of this man’s government relations. His encyclopedia is supposed to be free of prejudice, but all of the Kazakh articles are filled with bias.


Whether Wales started off pure is hard to say. At some point friends of the global corporatocracy got involved. The website would never have been allowed to get so big without it. Doing a little sleuthing one can find Trustees of the Jimmy Wales Foundation that are also members of the Council on Foreign Relations. One such man is Doron Weber.

Weber serves as President of the Board of The Writers Room, Director of Espresso Book Store & Café Holdings, Board Visitor of the Wikimedia Foundation, and Trustee of the Jimmy Wales Foundation. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations and USA Triathlon, Mr. Weber was educated at Brown University, the Sorbonne and Oxford.
[Source: https://www.linkedin.com/in/doronweber]

It is little wonder that Jimmy Wales lets so much smut be put up on his website. Google does the same. They are all members of the Council on Foreign Relations. I want you to see that the Internet is not a neutral place. Satan has his group stacked against Christ’s remnant. He wants those who go to get something moral and holy to be carried off into immorality and unholiness. It was Yahweh who directed me to start my website [www.heart4god.ws] in 2000. He later instructed me to start the blog site in 2008. He is not against the web, but He does want His people to beware of the things that are everywhere that will trip them up.

If it is necessary that you install software to protect yourself against the pornography that is everywhere on the Internet, then why not do so? It only takes a little effort. The choice could be one that saves someone from many pains.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

Joseph Herrin (10-03-2017)

Pornography. The definition has changed over the years, but the effect has not. Pornography is defined as an image of a female or male in a sexual position. I would take it a step further. Depictions of female or male persons unclothed, or clothed in an immodest way, that grabs the attention of the person looking at them, in a tantalizing way.

It is necessary to define pornography today because most people would say that they are not subjected regularly to it. The problem has to do with “it.” Most of what I call pornography today would not be characterized as such by others. Ask Sarah and Jezebel what pornography are and you will definitely get two highly divergent answers.

It has gotten to the point that I won’t visit the news sites of British dailies. It is said that the British are used to getting their news with a bit of sex. The truth is that the companies that cater to the British, and many other of the corporate news providers, give the people whatever will keep them coming back. If you make news available with all the tabloid sex stories then you are creating a hunger for tawdry bits of “news” that will keep men and women returning for more.

Pornography is not a small problem today. I don’t know of a single guy who has a computer, or a smart phone, who is not been subjected to porn in one form or another on a weekly basis. As to the girls, I have the statistics to go on. Every third pornographic image is viewed by a female. One in six females are addicted to pornography, and the numbers are rising. They are by and large the greatest segment for pornographic pictures to be made.

Christians should keep the following in mind.

Matthew 5:27-30
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Take a close look at the graphics above. Ninety percent of children ages 8 to 16 have viewed porn. Get a young person, age 12 to 17, to wrestle with porn and they will not stand a chance. Seventy percent of men ages 18 to 34 visit a porn site every month. Fifty percent of pastors regularly look at porn. Thirty-eight percent of adults (men and women) don’t see any problem with pornography. To them it is morally acceptable. That is nearly 4 out of every 10, and the numbers are only growing.

I would like to think that my readers are far less prone to the failings of society as a whole. Yet my studies have done little to set me apart from the rest. If men and women, boys and girls, have nothing inside of them to keep them from pornography they will fall to its allure. Because I know of men who are among the godliest, and they have at times confessed to me some struggle with this area of their life, I know that it would be irresponsible for me to turn a blind eye and assume that it is not a problem. I have had my own problems with pornography.

I remember when I was about 13 years old. This was before the days of personal computers or smart phones and tablets. It was around 1974. A friend of mine invited me over to his house. He had 2 older brothers. They had converted their garage into a boys hangout. It served as their bedrooms and was off limits to their mother. My friend took me into this place. On the walls were hung pictures of naked women. It was the first time I had ever seen such, and my senses were heightened. I remember looking at the photos and thinking that there were magazines full of them. I was highly attracted to them. No doubt the mother knew they were in the room and chose not to get involved. I was only 13 years old and I didn’t ask God for a new way to be tested. I discovered that this was already in me.

Pornography became my greatest sin. It disturbed me greatly during my teens and twenties. I wondered how I could be born again and still have such a strong attraction to pornography. I would sneak a magazine home and spend hours in my room looking at it only to become disgusted and eventually throw it out. I got a job working at a hotel and part of its income came from weekly or monthly renters. I had to do maintenance in all of the hotel rooms and I discovered that one of the renters filled his room with pornographic magazines. He had some magazines I had not heard of. They featured women together giving one another pleasure. I was 22 years old at the time. I lived at the hotel and I snuck a couple of magazines to my room. I would finish them and return them. I would then take some others until I finished with them.

The pornography was a love/hate relationship. I would go through the magazines at night, loving the titillation. After I had sinned with them I hated them. I feared for my relationship with Yahweh. I would return them, and I felt like I couldn’t even pray until the next day, and then I would pour out my heart to God. I had some lengthy periods of rest from this battle, but the victory didn’t come until I was 37. It was then the Father spoke to me and He said “If you don’t take control of what your eyes see then you will forfeit the good things I have prepared for you.”

I put pornography away that day and did not look at it again for about 20 years. I had some trials that were cut and dried. I knew what was expected of me and I did it. In my heart I was faithful to God. This was the time I was called to write many books and smaller writings for Yahweh. I spent many years in this good place. I was walking in the favor and discipline of the Lord.

Then I had a stroke. My stroke debilitated me a good bit. I had to learn to use my right hand again. I had to learn to walk without a cane. This took some months. It has been 16 months since my stroke. I have gotten better, though not perfect at walking around. I no longer use the cane. I can type with my right hand again, though not as fast. I find myself struggling to talk at times. I can’t think of the words I want to use, especially when I am tired.

I have found something else is troubling me. During my recovery of the past few months I have found myself struggling with pornography again. No, I don’t go out and purchase pornographic magazines. I assume they still sell them, though not in the grocery stores that I shop in nowadays. The magazines are different in the stores, and they don’t attract my interest. No, I have found that when I am tired I am easily snared by subtle ads. I click on something, then I will click some more. I found one day that I had spent hours viewing images that were pornographic.

This happened to me about three times. The unusual thing is that you can now get into a whole lot of impure things without having to visit a so-called porn site. All you have to do is search on some word or phrase on Google. Google is now the world’s largest pornographic site. It has millions of pictures from every form of pornography. You don’t have to leave Google, either. In fact, you are ill advised to chase porn to its original sites. You may come down with some form of malware.

I found that I still had a love/hate relationship with pornography. You see, I am not a better person than the man next door because I do not wrestle with evil. I am only better because the Lord holds me in His hand. He has placed His Spirit within me to enable me to overcome the devil and the evil he has brought into the world. He did a good thing 20 years ago when He rescued me from pornography. He told me I would not be fit to share the mysteries with other people unless I controlled what my eyes would see. That word of warning saved me from much heartache and put me on the painful, yet blessed, pathway of obedience.

Having a stroke does things to your brain. It makes you more tired, and when I am tired I let my guard down. I don’t have to look hard for pornographic pictures. They are everywhere on the Internet. It was a given that I would fall into the morass of impure things. All I had to do was wait, and the opportunity would come.

I am glad I stopped. I do not say that I am glad that I quit being attracted to evil things. That would be too much to ask for this time on earth. We are still these moral spirits inside of immoral bodies. What we do depends upon how much we feed our spirit man and starve our flesh man. It depends upon what the Father speaks to us in a moment of weakness. I heard Him speak to me.

I began thinking about whether I would be allowed in to the wedding supper of the Lamb. I began thinking about the others that were there, the apostles and prophets of old. I wondered if any of them had problems with pornography. I am sure a lot of them did before they were Christians. After they were Christians they had to adopt a different mindset.

Hebrews 10:26-31
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. And again, "The Lord will judge His people." It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Every word above speaks to the sin of pornography. I thought of the wedding of the Lord and how all those present were delivered from porn. That is to say, they surely did not cease to struggle with it in their beings, but they were able to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. I did not want to have suffered so much for Christ only to have it taken away from me at the end. Then another thought came from the Lord. I say it came from the Lord for it had not been there before and my mind was not to good at thinking up these things by itself. In that minute I thought of setting up my PC where it would not present a temptation every time I looked at it.

I got on the computer and within a few minutes I was looking at Top Ten Reviews. This is a site that does comparisons of a wealth of software categories. I was looking at their review for Content Filtering software.


I had never done such a search before. The top rated of the ten packages was called Content Protect. I went to their website and found a trial version of their software.

I downloaded it and I had it working in no time. This is said by a man who has had a stroke and who has problems with software. I tested it on some sample sites.

You can see this is a site on MSN.com. It is not considered a pornographic site, but it has pictures of celebs and how plastic surgery has transformed them. It blocked this page, flagging it as Nudity. This is precisely what I needed. I had to go to the site categories and change them to how I needed them.

(Click on Image to View Larger)

You can see 4 different categories here. They are easy to change and highly effective. There were 9 other programs listed at this site. Some of them are free, such as the number two program that was bought by Cisco, but which has a family option.


This is supposed to be similar to the program I selected, if you take the middle option. Make sure you don’t take the other options when you click to the next page. They will charge you for no reason.

Brothers and sisters, I believe the Lord put this on my mind at this time because He wants all His sons and daughters with a problem with pornography to secure their machines with one of these programs. They are available in iOS, Android, and the various iPhone setups as well. You will need to read the software description

Should you spend the time and setup your computer, tablet, or smart phone with one of these software packages? Yes! You need to take control of this problem before it takes control of you, or your family. If you feel that you are not good at handling the software packages, get someone involved who is.

Above all, try out the software packages. These are all big programs that are marketed to businesses worldwide. If a business can use them for their purposes, then we can too. And we should.

There is no way to select what is safe for your family without a program like this. You need to test with different browsers. I found that Chrome and Google, both of which are Google products, did not protect the images in Google. Perhaps they would if I tightened down the security in Google, but I was able to delete them and use other browsers.

Will you let your family get to heaven and have the door to the wedding feast shut in their faces? Think about it.

September 23

Joseph Herrin (09-23-2017)

Today is the Revelation 12 Sign. Let me give you a few dates that make this interesting.

1897 - First Zionist Congress served with Theodore Herzl. 120 years ago.
1917 - The Balfour Declaration submitted with Britain agreeing to a Jewish State. 100 years ago.
1947 - Israel is proclaimed a nation by the United Nations General Assembly. 70 years ago.
1967 - Six Days War in Israel. Jerusalem made a part of Israel. 50 years ago.
1977 - Anwar Sadat, Egyptian President visits Jerusalem in peace. 40 years ago.

The sign in the heavens is a verifiable sign. There is no point in saying, “It did not happen.” Anyone with a pair of eyes and a clear sky to see the heavens can make this one out. Could it be a point marking the end of the Gentile Gospel and the beginning of the Hebrew or Jewish times foretold in Scripture?

Romans 11:25-26
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved....

In truth, I don’t see how it could be the end of the Gentile church age and the beginning of the Jewish. Nothing that I know of has taken place to indicate that such a change is in the works - yet. That doesn’t mean something could not happen by the end of the year. The year does seem like one to take note of. With all of the anniversaries for the dates in the State of Israel it does seem like something is bound to take place. I suspect that all eyes should be on Israel.

Let me detail the heavenly sign for September 23rd. It comes from Revelation 12.

Revelation 12:1-6, 10-17
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days... Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua Christ.

Technically, there is nothing to make a person think of Israel as the woman in the passage above. The woman strikes me as the church, though I am not so hard and fast with my interpretive rules as I once was. It is possible that the sign of September 23rd and the dates relating to Israel are not conjoined. At least they are not joined in an obvious way. Perhaps we should view them separately, or the sign in the heavens is not the sign of Revelations at all. I have in the past seen the sign in the heavens as a larger sign, a sign including a dragon who attempts to consume the child, the man-child. There is no dragon ready to scoop up the man-child when he is born. There are a few serpents that are fairly close, but none that I would consider the one. It seems that something further must happen to complete the sign.

With that said, I have never gotten to the point where I was really good at interpreting the more obscure or unusual signs in the heavens. Give me a clear sign such as a total solar eclipse and it is more of a simple matter. We can agree that everything about us was created, and it was Yahweh who created all things. His Son is called “the Word.” He looks for things to speak through. The stars are not left out.

Psalms 19:1-4
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.

This day many preachers are proclaiming that Yahweh is speaking profound things. They say it with absolute surety, but I cannot. I am not sure what the Lord is saying. I do know that He is speaking and that there is much to the anniversaries of this year. I will keep my ear tuned to Yahweh. In due time all His words will be known.

I share these things that you might keep your ear tuned also. Seek Him and He may show you mysteries while the rest of the world is scratching their heads in wonder.

Season of the Hurricane

Joseph Herrin (09-21-2017)

Our Yard After Hurricane Irma

I mentioned that I spent a couple of days after Hurricane Irma cleaning up trash in our yard and mowing the grass. The yard now looks as good as it gets. I piled the brush in a pile. To give you a sense of the size of the brush that I piled, it is over head height.

The brush pile goes back to the tree behind it. I also got some diesel to pour on it when my daughter is ready to burn it. She will move it to an open spot up near the driveway to burn it. I spent two days getting the yard back in shape. I consider that pretty good timing as it was unusually cool for the time of year in Georgia. After 3 days it returned to much warmer weather. It has been in the lower 90s during the day and getting down to the mid to upper 60s at night.

It seemed fortunate that the warm weather returned at the same time that the power came back on. My bus is parked in the shade of a couple of trees, but it still gets hot here, and the humidity is rough at times.

Yesterday I had my last bout with the hurricane. I had come down to the Coffee Shop to answer my e-mails on Tuesday. It was late in the afternoon that I decided to get an ice cream cone there. I did notice that the ice cream was sparkly, as if it had refrozen. I should have asked them if they were able to keep it frozen during the storm. I ended up with a case of food poisoning yesterday. I couldn’t eat anything and I slept through much of the day. It was painful to even sit up. I did run to Perry as the computer shop called me to let me know my system was ready. They asked me if I had made my two drives on the system “RAID” drives. When I answered no, the gentleman told me that they had gotten crossed up and started to act as RAID drives when the system was rebooted. He straightened them out.

There has been more in the news lately. The weather channel is still waiting to see if Hurricane Maria is going to strike the East Coast or stay out to sea. We have had so much problem with hurricanes of late. Not a single hurricane has struck the U.S. with major force wind and rain for the last 12 years. There have been 2 to strike it so far this year, and the 3rd one is a possibility, though at this time it has not made up its mind. Hurricane Maria has been a force 5 storm already. It was nearly that strong when it struck Puerto Rico. It was 155 mph which is only 2 mph below a category 5 storm.

Also on September 19th Mexico City was struck by a 7.1 earthquake. It was the same month that Southern Mexico was struck by an 8.1, the most severe earthquake in a century. Tuesday’s earthquake was preceded by many taking earthquake precaution drills on the anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that killed thousands in the same location.

The Bible says the following about earthquakes.

Mark 13:8
There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.

The following is the path of the 2024 Eclipse.

Eclipse of 2024

The eclipse of 2024 touches Mexico, the United States, and Canada. These are things I am pondering in my spirit. The CANAMEX Highway, part of NAFTA, connects the three countries. Following is a description of the Highway in Wikipedia.

The CANAMEX Trade Corridor was outlined in 1991 in the “ISTEA” highway bill, and defined by Congress in the 1995 National Highway Systems Designation Act, Public Law 104-59, November 28, 1995.

Route description
The CANAMEX corridor is defined by the numbered highway designations along its length:

British Columbia
Highway 97 (Alaska Highway)
Highway 2 - Dawson Creek to Alberta border
Highway 43 - British Columbia border to Highway 16
Highway 16 - to Edmonton
Highway 216 through Edmonton
Highway 2 - Edmonton to Fort Macleod, through Calgary
Highway 3 - Fort Macleod to Lethbridge
Highway 4 - Lethbridge to Canada–United States border (Continues as Interstate 15)

United States
Montana - Interstate 15
Idaho - Interstate 15
Utah - Interstate 15
Interstate 15 - Utah border to Las Vegas
Interstate 515 - Las Vegas to Henderson
U.S. Route 93 - Henderson to Arizona border
U.S. Route 93 - Nevada border to Wickenburg
U.S. Route 60 - Wickenburg to Phoenix (makes the highway drivable as a continuous route though it is not officially included)
Interstate 10 - Phoenix to Tucson
Interstate 19 - Tucson to Mexico–United States border

Sonora - Mexico Federal Highway 15

Since the CANAMEX corridor was originally proposed, a second proposal, Interstate 11, would run along a similar path in Nevada and Arizona and replace most of the current non-freeway segments in those states.
[End Excerpt]

Things are seeming rather brittle along the CANAMEX highway. The three countries have been linked in various ways in recent years. President Trump’s war on illegal aliens is only a bunch of smoke. Don’t be distracted by it.

Hurricane Irma

I have been quiet lately for good reason. Hurricane Irma went right by me. It may be more proper to say that Tropical Storm Irma went right by me. It had a greater effect than one would have anticipated. I plan on posting some pictures of my yard in a couple of days. They are week old pictures of my yard, for I spent the two days after Irma cleaning up the yard.

Hurricane Irma didn't really do all that much damage here. It certainly was nothing like the Florida Keys, or southern Florida. The report from the electrical companies here is that it knocked down a bunch of trees, and blew a bunch of branches down. The end result was a mass of transformers out and a great hurry to locate some and to get help in Georgia putting up new lines, poles, and transformers.

My power was out for 3-1/2 days. When I turned my computer on it would not boot. I am now typing on a new laptop computer as my desktop is still in the shop. I just got it online and don't even have my email on it yet as I wanted to get off a blog. Tomorrow the plan is to get my email loaded on here with my email manager so that I can take care of that.

I was remarkably surprised when I did see one email on my tablet yesterday and it was from Office Depot. It was advertising Dell Laptops for less than $500 dollars. I remember when you couldn't get any laptop for less than $1,000 dollars, especially not one like I got that is 15" and has a DVD.

I have found that it is nice to go to the Oases Coffee House in Montezuma, GA. It is only about 3-4 miles from the house. It is Christian owned. Some of my daughter's friends own it and they put her to work setting it up. It has been open a little more than a year. She kept her original job, though. It has free wi-fi. It will be nice to come to the coffee shop and do some computer work.

3-1/2 days without electricity really means without an external source of electricity. I had 12 volt electric, for I have 3 large batteries that supply me with power. All of my lights and fans are 12 volts, as is my potable water system. When not needing emergency water I have water from a pump in the yard. Of course, that didn't work without the power from the poles going to it. I had to rely on my 20 gallon potable water system in my bus. It worked just fine.

In many ways I found my situation to be much better than my neighbors. The local stores were out of charcoal and grills, yet I cooked just like normal on my propane stove and oven. It is a full size one and only has to have the tank refilled about every 12-18 months. I watched as my neighbors hooked up generators to power their house. Then they brought in a large outdoor grill on the back of a pick-up. It is nice to have cooking in my house. It may seem a bit smaller than most peoples homes, but it is just right for me.

My refrigerator had been frozen up. I checked it and after 2 days it was defrosted. I had to go down to the Ace Hardware store and purchase a cooler to keep my food in. Walmart was all sold out. It seems like everyone thought of Walmart, but few thought of the smaller stores. My daughter thought it was funny when I got us some bottled spring water from a new Tractor Supply Company in town. It was 2 days before the storm hit. The Walmart was completely out of spring water, and bottled water for that matter. I found just what I wanted, and they were not expecting a hurricane and were running a special on the spring water.

I did a little more prepping for the storm. I bought some paper plates and plastic ware. They were very nice to use for the 3-1/2 days I did not have regular water. I probably could have washed the dishes, but it was nice anyways.

I took down my mosquito net and canopy which is outside by my bus. I am sure the wind would have made a wreck of them. I put them back up the day after the storm. The weather was unusually cool for about 3 days after. I slept outside in a chaise lounge chair that I had recently gotten. It was very nice. My dog Champ enjoyed the company.

I am back now, and tomorrow I will attempt to answer my email. Be at peace.

A Second Major Hurricane

Joseph Herrin (09-09-2017)

The citizens of the United States will still be cleaning up from Hurricane Harvey for quite a while. Some bayous and rivers are still overflowing their banks in Texas. Now all eyes are on Florida and Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Harvey hit Texas the same week that the total Solar Eclipse gave a sign of judgment to the United States. The Solar Eclipse was on August 21st. Hurricane Harvey struck Texas on August 25th. There are tens of thousands of Texans from Corpus Christi, Houston, Beaumont and other places who are struggling to come to grips with Hurricane Harvey’s extremely slow movement and its record breaking rainfall of over 50 inches. Many rental homes and apartments will not be rebuilt, or will be rebuilt too slowly for their inhabitants to make use of them. Before adequate time can be given to getting the Hurricane Harvey disaster remediated another disaster is looming in Hurricane Irma.

Going back to the Solar Eclipse, it is likely you saw some maps like the following.

Where did the eclipse actually start and end? We are told it was over water, but where was it?

These were the end points. The Solar Eclipse went from left to right. Look at where it ended. It ended right where Hurricanes Harvey and Irma had their beginning.

Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Irma

The spot off the left coast of Africa is where a lot of the hurricanes develop. They are formed by storms that come off of the African Coast. This is precisely where the Solar Eclipse ended.

As I have been watching Hurricane Irma over the course of the last five days I have noticed that its forecast track has gotten further east. It was because it was previously thought to strike on the east side of Florida, near Miami and Fort Lauderdale, that so many of the people from that area have been evacuated. Now that it is predicted to hit the west coast of Florida all those living around Miami and Fort Lauderdale will largely be spared. I live in Georgia and two days ago I noticed that I-75 North was getting packed and developing slowdowns.

(Click to View Larger)

I live in Montezuma. It is not that large, only having a population of about 3,500. It is about 20 miles from Perry, GA which is right where the Interstate goes through. I go to Perry occasionally to shop because it is larger and has many stores that Montezuma does not. As Irma is making a more westerly track it is just about to come right across where I am at in Georgia. According to its track, it should pass to the left side of us, providing the most severe wind and rain upon us. It is still a couple of days out and its track could change some more. Even at its most severe it should only strike this area with 60-70 mph winds. Also, our land slopes down toward the street, making the threat of flooding unlikely.

Side Yard

Hurricane Irma has reached category 5 strength, making it among the strongest hurricanes in the Atlantic. Only one other recorded hurricane has remained with winds above 180 mph for more the 18 hours. Hurricane Irma broke the record with winds in excess of 180 mph set by Hurricane Allen in 1980. She had 180 mph winds for more that 37 hours.

It was with these winds that she struck a number of islands, including Barbuda where the mayor said the island had over 90% of the houses destroyed or damaged.

It has been 12 years since America has been struck by a major hurricane of category 3 or higher. Now, in just 20 days after her solar eclipse sign she is about to be struck by her second one in that short span of time. Will the  track of Hurricane Irma remain on the western coast of Florida, going up through Georgia? The next two days will tell.

Is Irma’s destruction worse than America’s? America has killed nearly 60 million babies since 1973. She has filled the earth with pornography, adultery, homosexuality, drugs, and every form of evil. If you would pray for mercy, don’t pray against the will of Yahweh. He has determined evil against a wicked nation. Let us go into the inner room and pray.
