feel as though I am in a hostile environment.
Rarely do I feel warmth or evidence of the Holy
Spirit. People are rude, impolite and seem to
have an attitude that is hostile and evil.

That's not the case anymore.

use a phrase from my era; I'm hep! I can't be
accused of being naive. I'm from Hot Springs,
Arkansas. Hot Springs Prostitution and Horse
Racing made Hot Springs a favorite destination
resort. Therefore, I am no stranger to
prostitutes, con artists, thieves, murderers,
drug dealers, addicts and many other such
professions and life styles. Somehow, the Lord
placed a "hedge" between these people
and me. I knew them and rubbed elbows but I
always felt a void and was never "one of
I want to say a few things
about some of the entities that came out of this
town, the birthplace of the Assembly of God.
The Assembly of God
Denomination was born right here in Hot Springs.
Rex Humbard was among several famous
televangelists who came out of here or came here
for their final "touch up" before fame
and fortune. Hot Springs is an important vortex
which will become obvious in the last days. A
vortex that permits the spirit that enables the
children of the light as well as spirits that
enable the practitioners of the dark side, to
enter this dimension. Mount Hermon is the most
famous of all vortexes. It is believed that was
where the transfiguration of Jesus took place and
where the fallen angels entered this realm. I
have heard that there are 13 such vortexes on the

Did you Jew'em down son?
Anytime I made a purchase my dad would always ask
that question. Dad was not prejudiced against the
Jews and I certainly was not! "They"
trained me in sales when I left home at a very
young age. A group of Jewish businessmen took me
under their wing and taught me the ropes. I
admired and respected this "race" of
geniuses! That was simply the way my dad thought
and his way of asking an honest question and did
not imply disrespect. That's the way my father
Hot Springs merchants, in my hometown, were
mostly from Chicago and of the Jewish lineage. I
never bought a shirt or article of clothing at
retail because I had been trained from childhood
to "Jew'em down" on the price. I
thought that was the way to do business. The town
was full of auction houses and I unknowingly
learned "the con" simply through
"osmosis." I sold newspapers and
"pink sheets" on the streets, in the
bars and houses of prostitution. "Pink
Sheets" were the race results of that day
and contained the next day's entries for the
daily racing at world renowned, Oaklawn Park Race
Track, which had been established in the late
1800's... the turn of the 20th century.
Gangsters, including the likes of Al Capone
frequented Hot Springs. This was a dangerous town
in which to grow up. I knew more about this side
of life by the time I was 14 years old than the
normal person learns in a lifetime. I left home
at 14 for California, and was expecting everybody
in California to be light years ahead of me and I
was sure I would be at a tremendous disadvantage.
On the contrary! I was amazed at how sheltered
and innocent the kids were as compared to what I
was accustomed to in Hot Springs.

At this writing, Gregg Williams is suspended for
his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty
scandal, under which bounties were paid for
causing injuries that would take targeted players
on opponent teams out of games, due to their
injuries. Williams is the defensive coordinator
of the New Orleans Saints and has been in the
press for his speeches to his team. I wish I
could publish them here. He offered money, a
bounty to his players to hurt and destroy the
opposing team's players. We're talking criminally
evil. He instructed his players to "Kill the
head" and he was talking about the actual
heads of the players. He instructed his players
to cripple the other players. Williams told the
men that while they were in the pile, after a
play, to touch and effect the head. Here's one of
many quotes from Yahoo Sports Page... Were gonna

I told the Lord that I would
starve before I would continue in a business that
I had to overcharge the customer to pay for the

There is little honesty and honor in our society

Confession Time! I'm Not
Proud To Write This!
I'm writing this as I would speak if we were old
friends. Please don't be quick to judge.
to my calling to honor and serve our Lord I was
engaged in the fine art of high pressure sales.
Therefore, I am not naive about these things
either. In 1978 I wrote a training course on high
pressure, objection-free, in-home closing. It was
entitled, "Nothing Happens Til The Sale Is
Closed," which became very popular.
"Closing" used in this example is a
term given the "creme de la creme" of
salesmen. A "closer" closed the sale!
We (closers) did not "baby-eye" or
charm the prospective buyer into the contract. We
used techniques and methods of manipulation and
control that were foreign to the typical sales
person. It was pure dynamite and hardly ever
failed. However, many people use the techniques
today which are taught but not understood. These
methods are right out of my six cassette series
which I wrote, recorded and sold in the 1970's
and 80's. I see them commonly used these days but
the techniques are not understood and I can tell
they are just programmed into these sales people
who are selling to unknowing buyers. These days
It's really not so important for the user of
these techniques to be highly skilled because the
buyers are not armed with the divine knowledge of
discernment from the Holy Spirit anyway. In my
day more people were armed with Divine knowledge
and they were harder to sell. The buyer of that
day knew the value of a dollar and it was harder
to separate them from their money.
point and confession is simply that I was wrong
in teaching people these techniques. I was
serving Satan and did not know it. I was ignorant
of God's nature! I, like so many other new,
baby-Christians thought I was "saved"
(begotten) and I was but I was ignorant of God's
will in those early days. I wrote this material a
few years before I backslid and went to live in
hell for a decade. Coincidence? I don't believe
in coincidence so I guess it was proof that I had
can use this page to make another point.
Sometimes, we as Christians may have had an
experience of the Spiritual kind and we may truly
believe we are Born of God but still lack
understanding. It becomes more obvious to me each
day that there are degrees of everything. That's
another page but a good reason that we should be
humble and careful when we represent or attempt
to speak for God. I am constantly aware and
fearful that I may mislead someone. I have
threatened to stop this website because of this
realization but the Holy Spirit tells me to
continue. I can only trust God that HE has HIS
hand on me and on those who read my contributions
for understanding. People have questions and they
need direction. Some of us are called to fill
that duty and we are not perfect... far from it
but I pray we are blessed by God to do HIS will.
I rambled but I was led to write that. Back to
business... "The Decline of Mankind."
am led to believe we are in the last days and the
final showdown. Therefore, be prepared to live
among a declining morality and do your best to
not join them in their decline. I am depressed
about it and it shows. I have seen it within my
own family and friends. Some of us are moving
closer to God's will and some further away from
God. It seems to be beyond our control but the
Spirit that lives in us determines which way we
advance. People are not aware. I'm sure of that.
They feel justified and "right" while
their evil nature is becoming more evil. They are
blinded. I know I'm not blinded because I become
more aware each day of my human nature. I see it
and am not pleased with those fleeting thoughts
which include disgust and shame for the people I
run across in my daily routine. Few are good and
decent. You never know when your actions may
serve as a "helper" to a person that
spends much of their time in Spiritual warfare
with devils and your good and decent interaction
may help them. God works on my heart daily. HE
keeps me humble. You must have HIS blessing and
discernment. It's a mess! Mankind is declining!
are you doing? Can you relate to what I'm saying?
Make no mistake about it, our society is becoming
more evil. It became accelerated about 2001. I
wonder if it had something to do with the fact
that we elected an occult president that previous
year? Could be! About that same time, Jerry
Falwell and the Religious Right crawled into bed
with politics, a church/state marriage from hell.
The self proclaimed Christians can't see it
themselves. Their preachers preach the political
message from the pulpit. John Hagee is the worst
but most preachers are guilty. They confuse their
evil nature with the will of God. You may be one
of them? Take a long look at yourself. Eternity
is at stake. Good luck but it was determined long
ago, before the foundation of the world. Perhaps
earnest prayer will help? It can be retroactive,
I seem to know that.
