 About Mel


Request for prayer

--- Please pray that the Gospel presentation document "How To Get To Heaven" in various languages on this website would be readily accessed, effectively understood, and instrumentally used by the Lord to bring countless numbers of people around the world to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

An important coming reality:

Upon the start of the Great Tribulation, believers can lose their salvation.  For details, see the document "End Times Speculations", which is located at the top of the 'Doctrines' web-page.

? Did you know that:
- - God has assigned all true believers to be functioning as "priests", doing ministry work in a church or ministry.
(For more information, see the document "1 Peter 2:5 - Assigned To Be Ministering In A Priestly Fraternity" in the ' 1 Peter' Sermon or Lesson Outlines web-page.)

- - Running out of time:
We (servants of God) are running out of time to get everything done - all of our ministry work, because April 3, 2034 is coming quickly.
" spoken of through the prophet Isaiah [40:4] : " A voice of one calling in the desert, `Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' ""  (Matthew 3:3)


- - Expect to increasingly incur property damage and losses of various kinds:
- - During our time, especially since about the year 2020, there has been occurring frequent news and scientific reports about how destructive weather events are becoming increasingly more frequent and more destructive.
- - Furthermore, reports document that there are significant overall increases in the occurrences and destructiveness of other kinds of events in nature, such as wildfires, droughts, floods, volcanoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, famines, plagues, insect infestations, virus pandemics, and etcetera.
- - The world thinks that mankind's actions are contributing to many of these adversities that are increasingly coming upon the earth, which may to some degree be true.
- - But these increases in destructive phenomena may furthermore be due to God's actions, plan, and timing to bring discipline and judgment upon the accelerating wickedness of peoples and societies around the world.
- - In the same way that God causes the rain to fall on "the righteous and the unrighteous"
(Matthew 5:45), He causes destructive weather and catastrophic events in nature to befall the righteous and the unrighteous.
- - As a prime example, in Genesis chapter 19 is recorded that when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah
(vv.19:24-25, 27-29) due to their wickedness (v.18:20), Lot lost his house (v.19:2), all of his property and belongings (vv.19:16-17), his wife (v.19:26), and his two future sons-in-law (v.19:14-16), but not his two daughters (v.19:16).
- - Even though Lot experienced huge losses in God's discipline and judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, God did "rescue Lot" from death, being "a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men"
(2 Peter 2:7)
- - As the wickedness on the earth during our time accelerates to perhaps surpass the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah
(Genesis 18:20), we should expect God to inflict more of these calamities, disasters, destructions, and losses.
- - Thereby, we should also expect that we true believers will nevertheless suffer various kinds of losses and incur property damage, albeit collateral damage, from these destructive and catastrophic events that God is now increasingly inflicting on the wickedness of the peoples on the earth. 
- - "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away.  Blessed be the name of the Lord." 
(from Job 1:21)
