Message to the Young Saint: To Live, We Must Die - To Win we must Lose.

Large print for video purposes.

To Live, We Must Die - To Win we must Lose.

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)

1 Corinthians 15:57

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)

Know this Saint: We have already won the Battle Romans 3:23 and will win the war Revelation 19 by the Faith OF CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.

First we must die and lose so that we may live and win - REIGN WITH OUR LORD FOREVER. AMEN! MARANATHA!

To have a deeper understanding of Christ we must understand the paradox of the spiritual - eternal.

The Cross: To Live, We Must Die #Salvation #Sanctification (


The only way to comprehend what happened and what IS accomplished at the CROSS is through God's word.

 We hear and read the truth and must BELIEVE and have FAITH that is HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED.    PAST TENSE!  DONE!

How this happens?

God's word splits and separates. Divides.  

Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God exists as 3 parts in the visual image of the BODY and Person of Jesus Christ. We are made in His image existing as SPIRIT, SOUL, BODY.  Genesis 1:26,27; 2:7 KJV.

How I study the King  James Bible

Understand the Bible - From a Workman Approved unto God by His Grace (

The Temple of God in Jerusalem was comprised of 3 parts that represent the Godhead being 3 parts and how man is comprised of 3 parts.  See notes below.

No one except the high priest was allowed inside the 60-foot high, 4-inch-thick curtain - veil between the HOLY OF HOLIES and the inner Court.  Inside the Holy of Holies is where God resided to interface with mankind. Inside the 20 (cycle of completeness connected to a perfect period of waiting, labor, or suffering that is compared to a trial rewarded) square cubits room is the MERCY SEAT on the ARK of the COVENANT. 

What was the mercy seat on the Ark of the Covenant? (

The Holy of Holies - Temple Institute

Before the FALL we were at one with God.  After the fall we were separated.  APART. Divided.  The Temple represented this.

After the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the VEIL was DIVIDED TORN.  We now have full access to the FATHER through JESUS CHRIST. 

Before we can enter the Holy of Holies and experience the torn veil - Our SOUL must be torn-rent-divided from our SPIRIT.   See fascinating study below - an excerpt from Watchman Nee's Spiritual Man. 

The Great Paradox  (Meaning of a paradox. A literary device. A paradox is a statement that appears at first to be contradictory, but upon reflection then makes sense. This literary device is commonly used to engage a reader to discover an underlying logic in a seemingly self-contradictory statement or phrase. As a result, paradox allows readers to understand concepts in a different and even non-traditional way.)

God uses the Paradox often.  Example:  When I am weak I am strong. My strength is made perfect in weakness.  2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV. 

Here is the Great Paradox: To Live we must be dead.   To be complete and enter into communion - fully restored relationship with God as well as our salvation we are first crucified with Christ and then to grow in Christ we must have our WILL - our SOUL -separated from our SPIRIT.   To Live we must be dead. 

RELIGION is CAIN.  FAITH is ABEL.   Read Jude 1:11 KJV.

Our flesh, our carnal man is crafty and clever. The cross is foolish to us or a stumbling block. Let's read together:   

1 Corinthians 1:18

King James Version

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

The only way to defend the faith and to preach the GOSPEL OF GRACE is to use the Word of God.

Ephesians 6:17

King James Version
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:                      

Jesus Christ - within whom dwells The Father (

My prayer especially for the young people of this age. For the Lost may they come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.

For your children today, those young people who are struggling under the weight of the profound challenges of this apostate age. We are all tired and beaten down Lord, but today's youth we pray for and intercede especially for. May they be encouraged and strengthened strong in the Power of Your Might. May they increase in the knowledge of your will in all Wisdom and Spiritual Understanding. To Know and to Understand your WORD*. To flee wickedness and discern and run from false teaching. I pray Romans 12:1 over the youth who belong to you today Lord:

Romans 12:1

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”

King James Version (KJV)

Sustain them until your appearing to bring us home. AMEN!  MARANATHA!

* See  knowing and understanding.

To know and understand.  The Spirit knows.  The Mind (Soul) understands what the Spirit knows. Once we are saved we are regenerated into new creatures in Christ. We move, live, function in a completely different mode even though we are still IN this world but NOT OF it.  Often young people backslide into their carnal desire of wanting to be OF this world and all of its pleasures and distractions.  I was young once.  We've all been there.  The only way to GROW in Christ is to experience HIM on a very personal level. This requires putting into practice all of the Bible.  You learn about faith and patience, trust me He takes us through actual experiences, so we LEARN by actual experience what the written word says.  We must read and study our King James Bible daily.  We have to stay alive in Christ and grow.  This prevents us from the devil and his agents taking us as a spoil of war - Colossians 2:8.  


We are also to use the WORD as our offensive weapon and in all aspects of our spiritual warfare to increase in FAITH which is our shield.  Ephesians 6:12-17.

We Saints are The Bride of Christ (

 The Saint knows we are in the final stretch of our race before we are Raptured to be with our Lord for eternity.

For the young especially, it is extremely difficult to look for and wait for a Rapture date that eventually passes into another long stretch of desert. 

For those youth who are lost - not saved - there is a tremendous sense of hopelessness.

See The Gospel which is for our Salvation here if you are not saved.


That Christ Jesus died on the cross for our sins according to the scriptures, that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.  1 Corinthians 15:1-4 King James Bible.

Note: sadly, there are many YouTube videos that say if you believe the gospel you are saved. The truth is you must "believe" WHAT the Gospel says, not believe in "the Gospel." 

This is no different than saying if you believe the road sign you will be saved - instead of following the directive Stop! Bridge Out!

For the Young Saint, especially to the young man who seems to have written me a sincere comment:

Be of Good Cheer.  The mere fact that you are reaching out in the midst of your struggles means you belong to Christ.  IF you weren't reaching out for a deeper understanding and relationship for Jesus Christ in the midst of you temptation, tribulation and suffering, you would be OF the world and your struggles would certainly NOT be looking to Christ but rather Man.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

King James Version (KJV)


A few days back I posted a blog and video about UFOs as the alien deception after the Rapture of the Church takes place. 

Blog for this Video with associated links: 

I received a comment from a young man expressing surprising disappointment and a heavy heart of hopelessness waiting for our Redemption and yet nothing has happened yet. Despite all the many so-called self-appointed prophets knowing for certain the Rapture would happen and yet is has not.

Here's his comments:

"But this was the case in 2021. Nothing happened, even Obama spoke on it. It feels like the Lord isn't coming anytime soon anymore. Life just keeps getting worse by the hour but we're still here. What's going on...

heard but how is one to prepare? I'm not tempted to go sin but I'm just super discouraged. I'm young and have nothing else going for me. My country is collapsing and it's about to get even worse. I'm lost out here.

Can you please make a video how young men can practically live while we wait for the rapture. Nobody has ever done this for us young guys, that’s why so many are doomed."  End Quote.

I sent him a few notes of scripture from be strong in the Lord, Lean not on your own understanding, etc.

I thought it would be nice to do a video on encouragement, especially to the young about growing weary as we wait. To my surprise the young man asked if I could do a video on this which seemed sure confirmation.

I pray this young man is sincere, The Lord knows his heart.

 I sincerely ask all Christians who are mature in Christ, both young and old to pray with me for all of us as we patiently wait. Let's pray especially for those who are going through terrible trials, testing, health issues, social or economic issues.

Let's be very clear on our understanding. The Anointing is under attack. The Devil hates our hope in our redemption.

 He wants to take as many to hell with him as possible. This is a powerful opportunity for us to pray. Not to pray for a FAKE REVIVAL or Spirit fire in America or etc. etc. Or the many other fool prayers of the CINOs. Christian in name only who are blindly following their blind guides into the pit.

Time to Talk about The Asbury Revival (

I believe a huge reason so many youth today are fed up with organized church is they are not dumb, they see, they ask questions and especially they have at their fingertips what people in my generation could not find in years going through the greatest libraries in our spheres.

    WARNING:  If life is just wonderful and you're feeling no need to get out of here, check yourself:

To Those in The Laodicean Church: Time is Short Come Out (

With this explosion of information comes the overwhelming sense of DOOM and HOPELESSNESS. Yes I am a BABY BOOMER and remember vividly crouching under my desk at school going through Nuclear Attack drills during the Cuban Missile Crisis, (yes, Russia is still our adversary after all these years) and now we are told that China will attack our homeland if, when and what seems at times imminent.


A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a historical novel by Charles Dickens. The plot centers on the years leading up to the French Revolution and culminates in the Jacobin Reign of Terror. Set in London and Paris, it tells the story of two men, Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton, who look similar but are very different in traits. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

THE FRENCH REVOLUTION?  Let's talk about it. Good vs Evil.  When God let them have it with both barrels. 

Read About the Waldenses by JA WYLIE 

The end game of the struggle of the Protestants who fled the Vatican in the French Alps finally led to the St Bartholmew massacre which ultimately brought God's justice in the French Revolution which led to the ultimate enlightenment of mankind LIBERTY.

Sir Walter Scott, Life of Napoleon, vol. 1, ch. 17. “France is the only nation in the world concerning which the authentic record survives, that as a nation she lifted her hand in open rebellion against the Author of the universe. Plenty of blasphemers, plenty of infidels, there have been, and still continue to be, in England, Germany, Spain, and elsewhere; but France stands apart in the world's history as the single state which, by the decree of her Legislative Assembly, pronounced that there was no God, and of which the entire population of the capital, and a vast majority elsewhere, women as well as men, danced and sang with joy in accepting the announcement.”


I remember vividly that summer night back in 1972 after returning home from a church service when the pastor said the Rapture was going to happen at any moment and some moron was handing out insurance policies with scripture telling people to cancel their health and life insurance because by their faith in God's word we were covered 100 % and that Jesus was coming within a few days, if not hours. They had some out-of-town world traveling snake oil salesman tell us that Ezekiel 37 was fulfilled in May 1948 which I found out 50 years later that it was NOT.

After 50 years of going to church The Lord took me OUT from among them.  I finally could see the difference between the Laodicean church and the Church of Philadelphia.

See my testimony:

Which Church do you belong to?  The Church in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13)

Or the Church of the Laodiceans,  the apostate church in this age (Revelation 3:14-19) ?  

The Hyper-Dispensationalists Preachers and teachers with their false and twisted words meet the definition of the church of the  Laodiceans.  

The Laodiceans - Apostate church operations of this day

Background: I am a retired naval officer with a successful career that should have been spectacular in both economic gain as well as social status, but after giving myself over to Jesus after I stopped drinking in 2001 I went on a twenty-year journey of walking with Christ. In my journey I had gone backward, completely backward financially, socially, and especially mentally regarding who I thought I was. 

That's when I began journalling my experiences in my spiritual growth and realized that 50 years of attending apostate 501C3 Building Operations called churches run by apostate trained CEOs called pastors was a dead end. I had to come out from among them and Praise God I did.  See my 50 year testimony and the essentials:

The first lesson I had to learn was I needed God’s word as my guide and through His divine intervention I thoroughly studied and compared to learn that modern Bibles were corrupted and perverted. It was the King James Bible that was the Final Authority.ds I had to come to the cross and understand that I AM crucified with Christ and the life I was now living I was now living by the FAITH OF GOD.


Galatians 2:20

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

King James Version (KJV)

The NIV reads:

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.


I am =  I exist eternally in the state of "being" crucified with Christ. 

I have been = I experienced "in the past" - PAST - the event of Christ's crucifixion.

What was most painful is I had to relearn everything as if I were a newborn child. The first that left abruptly was PRIDE and my once self assured confidence and arrogance was stripped away, one piece at a time.

Every mature Saint has gone through the exact same walk. Oswald Chambers calls this the BEWILDERING CALL of God. Read the article in notes below.

Here's Our Order of Battle & Lessons Learned

Order of battle - Wikipedia

Note:  In my over twenty years serving as an officer, my submarine deployments and subsequent staff on Commander, Submarine Forces Atlantic, we continually worked with and trained on our order of battle to engage our enemy.   In spiritual warfare it is very similar.   Ephesians 6:12-17; 1 Corinthians 10:1-5 KJB

first: Lessons Learned

We also trained and studied - relentlessly LESSONS LEARNED - (private corporate calls CASE STUDY) in order to avoid common pitfalls that our brethren in arms experienced.  Read 1 Corinthians 10:11 KJB and see my detailed study on this:

In my years in the U.S. Submarine service, we lived and breathed this concept:

 “Lessons Learned from the errors of others”

This concept was ingrained with the Submarine Service AXIOM:

Every Regulation is written in someone else’s Blood

Note for detail: In the early morning hours I was more than eager to come off my midwatch. I was cold, hungry, exhausted and really had to go to the bathroom in the worst way. Our submarine was pounding and heaving mercilessly in the north sea as we were ascending from periscope depth in our procedure to surface. As the Diving Officer I had completed my check list and was painfully watching the Chief of the Watch Standing at the Ballast Control Panel with his stopwatch. I snapped, “For God’s sake we’re on the surface. The Low Pressure Blower back pressure is set at prescribed limits delta plus + atmospheric psig. Let’s get the watch turned over.”

The second I uttered those words - out of nowhere -coming out of the rig for red lighting against dark shadows -  the Captain appeared and stood next to me as I squirmed trying not to pee on myself. His face was stern, ghost like framed inside the red lighting, and sent shivers down my spine. His steeled eyes glared at me and this is all he said, “You know why we have the extra procedure to allow the extra time for the low pressure blow, EVEN THOUGH we seem to be on the surface? Back in 1960 (something) The USS K…….. was on the surface or so they thought, The OOD ordered the hatch open and they took in sea water because in actuality they were still partially submerged. 



Now Compare the above Physical Reality with The Spiritual World

As in the natural world of laws - The Apostle Paul teaches the Spiritual reason for examples and studying the lives of those who have gone before us who were Christian and served the Lord.  Read 1 Corinthians 10 KJV & 1 Corinthians 11:27-32 KJV carefully.  We have the lives of others for our example to teach us and to learn by. Read the entire chapter 10 in 1 Corinthians to gain a very somber understanding and then turn to 1 Corinthians 11:23 - 32 KJV and read it carefully and prayerfully. Amen!

Shall we receive good at the hand of God and not Evil? Modern day Preachers hate this verse (

Ecclesiastes 9:11

“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”

King James Version (KJV)

Mind you, few are chosen, Matthew 22:14 the way is narrow and straight is the gate - Matthew 7:14. The fact that any young person wants to read and study this and is in a struggle of their life and CARE about the things of the Spirit and walk in the Spirit and NOT of the flesh - Romans 8:1 means you are one of the few that are called and chosen and Hear Your Master's Voice - the voice of another you will NOT follow - John Chapter 10. 

1 Corinthians 9:25

“And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.”

King James Version (KJV)

Hebrews 12:1

Philippians 3:7

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)

The Bewildering Call of God by Oswald Chambers:

God called Jesus Christ to what seemed absolute disaster. And Jesus Christ called His disciples to see Him put to death, leading every one of them to the place where their hearts were broken. His life was an absolute failure from every standpoint except God’s. But what seemed to be failure from man’s standpoint was a triumph from God’s standpoint, because God’s purpose is never the same as man’s purpose.

This bewildering call of God comes into our lives as well. The call of God can never be understood absolutely or explained externally; it is a call that can only be perceived and understood internally by our true inner-nature. The call of God is like the call of the sea— no one hears it except the person who has the nature of the sea in him. What God calls us to cannot be definitely stated, because His call is simply to be His friend to accomplish His own purposes. Our real test is in truly believing that God knows what He desires. The things that happen do not happen by chance— they happen entirely by the decree of God. God is sovereignly working out His own purposes.

If we are in fellowship and oneness with God and recognize that He is taking us into His purposes, then we will no longer strive to find out what His purposes are. As we grow in the Christian life, it becomes simpler to us, because we are less inclined to say, “I wonder why God allowed this or that?” And we begin to see that the compelling purpose of God lies behind everything in life, and that God is divinely shaping us into oneness with that purpose. A Christian is someone who trusts in the knowledge and the wisdom of God, not in his own abilities. If we have a purpose of our own, it destroys the simplicity and the calm, relaxed pace which should be characteristic of the children of God.
