Richard Shaw and I landed in Pueblo Colorado, on Friday afternoon. We flew in a small turbo-jet Prop, airplane and I have to tell you that the ride was a nasty one. A woman, who was seated at the rear of the plane kept screaming as the plane bounced around like an errant ping-pong ball! When we landed both Richard and I were woozy…. and that’s an understatement!
We got the rent-a-car, and headed toward Canon City, and to the Abbey, where we retrieved my books and DVDs, which we shipped to the conference that I will be speaking at in Oregon. I have to tell you that the place gave me the creeps! It was at one time, a Catholic Boarding school and is essentially in the middle of nowhere! Why the Matthew Miller crew, who have still not publicly apologized for leaving us all in the lurch, would pick such a desolate, isolated, hard-to-get-t0 venue is beyond me. The Abbey is a throw-back to a day where errant boys were sent away from their families, to be raised by nuns and priests. I can only imagine what the stones would tell if they could talk. We also met three people who flew into Pueblo because they had purchased tickets that were NOT refundable. I’m not going to belabor the point here, but I am dumbfounded that Miller and his cohorts, who appeared on a newly created radio show on Wednesday, didn’t say one word about the conference…. poor form, in my opinion.
We met “Greg” for dinner and had a wonderful meal with him – he was one of those who had a non-refundable ticket, and flew out to Colorado anyway. We talked about the weird weather, the instability in the Middle East, and how we felt that we were in the birth pangs. Greg also gave us a donation to help with our trip, thanks Greg!
We found our hotel in Colorado Springs and finally got to sleep – in separate rooms, LOL! – around midnight.
Yesterday we met Stan & Holly Deyo, and interviewed Stan for Watchers 3. There was so much to talk about that we didn’t leave their house until almost 9 pm. Stan is one of the most fascinating and knowledgeable men I have ever met! Richard and I had a late dinner and then headed to the sack.
Today we are going to interview Barrie Shwortz, who was the lead photographer, for the Shroud of Turin Research Team, that poured over the Shroud, conducting a variety of scientific experiments, in 1978. He will bring a very unique perspective to Watchers 3, as he both handled the Shroud, and took thousands of photos. A few of you have expressed concern about the Shroud being a Catholic relic. While it is controlled by the Catholic Church, it is what I believe to be, God’s calling card. What I mean is that the Shroud may be forensic evidence of both the crucifixion and the resurrection! It is the most fascinating and enigmatic, artifact we have on the planet, in my opinion. I have been an amateur sinologist – one who studies the Shroud – for almost 31 years. By the way, we will be discussing how the Carbon Dating samples that were taken from the Shroud may have been deliberately manipulated to ensure a late dating. This dating, from the 14 century has been proven to be in error as the sample was from a part of the Shroud, that was repaired by the poor sisters of Clair with end-to-end splices! There is a peer-review paper that I will link to later that discusses this.
In closing today’s update: Stan and Holly Deyo, believe as I do that we are in the last days. We look toward September as a month in which our way of life may change in a drastic way. I have said this before and do so now, get prepared! Store up some food and water, and learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones. If these are the birth-pangs then they will lead to the Tribulation. The bottom line is this, we don’t know how much of this we are going to go through. (Please don’t post your position on this as it will only serve to divide people.)
In the end I believe that we are pawns in what I call, a Cosmic Chess Match and the final moves of this match may be about to spill out on this earth. It all leads to the Rider on the White Horse, defeating the armies of the Antichrist. Yashua/Jesus will finally put an end to the system that has enslaved humankind for millennia. This is why we are told to look up, as we see the birth pangs, the signs that we are told to watch for, because they are a harbinger of His coming!
