I first want to thank  Athenenoelle for following  “TheNountaineer” and giving me the boost that I needed to start writing again. It has been a long time. I hope that this is not too deep for my readers, for it is the revelation of great evil in our midst! This is something that is very necessary to know about, if not now then soon, it will reveal itself’.


I have chosen to write about this difficult topic because my own deceased father was a “Free Mason” and I owe it to his memory to divulge what I have learned since his death. I have known for a very long time that my father was a Free Mason but I never brought up the subject while he was alive. I first saw his “Masonic ring” when I was just a little taller than the night-stand that had the ring sitting on it in an open ring box. I must have been three or four years old. I did not touch it even though I was always curious about new things that I encountered in life. I saw the Masonic ring on the right hand of an elderly man that had a vision about me when I was thirty years old. That 3 part story can be read at: . That occasion has led me to where I am today. It appears that God has been preparing me for a great spiritual battle, the battle of a lifetime!


I believe with all of my soul that we are in what is known as “the last days”, as was referred to in the Bible. If you do not have a copy of the Bible then I urge you to get yourself a copy and start studying it as soon as you can. I have been studying it for nearly 25 years and know that it is “The Word of God”. It contains all that a person needs to know to receive eternal life. This life is full of disappointments and struggles that range from minimal to severe for many of us, and I am included. The Bible tells the world how God created all that we see and very much that we do not see including angels and cherubim. I have seen demons when I was in my twenties. I even saw Satan, who appeared in front of me when I was 18 years old. My 15 year old sister was sitting across the room when it happened and she is a witness. When it ended, I looked over at her and she had a look of horror on her face. It was not until 2009 that she finally confirmed that she had also seen the same thing as I had seen. This was proof that the Bible is accurate and true.


I lived in the national forest for the first ten years after moving to this area of S.E. Arizona in January of 1987. Those years were very difficult and  they included interactions with human smugglers as well as drug smugglers. When I was in town looking for work, the illegals would break-in to my small travel trailer and steal all that they could steal. There were times when I returned to find that they had stolen more than I was able to obtain through my trip into town. This was a form of Satanic attack, though it would be years later that I would recognize that I was truly in the spiritual battle of a lifetime.


It was about 15 years after moving into town that I learned about the large number of “Free Masons” living in this small town. I had experienced more trouble in this town than any other place that I had ever lived in previously. I had been befriended by a man who was previously associated with the Chicago crime families before he moved back to this town from Alaska, where he had operated a placer gold mining suction dredge which was very profitable. I learned, sometime later, that this man was providing information about me to a very wicked owner of the ranch that had the grazing rights in the portion of the national forest where I had lived on my mining claim. During the 15 years, I was shot at twice while prospecting in a different  section of national forest that was only a few miles from town. I knew who it was who shot at me and I did not reveal to them that I knew who did it. One of these people ate lunch at the senior center where I also ate lunch. I was allowed to eat there even though I was not old enough because I was legally disabled and was receiving money from Social Security. It was this income that enabled me to move into town and to eventually rent a place of my own. It was this man who revealed that he was a “Free Mason” and when I revealed that my father had been a Mason he tried on a couple of occasions to get me to become a Free Mason. I told him that I was never a “joiner” and was not interested. He eventually decided to show his true self by threatening me with great bodily harm at the Senior Center and he harassed me for the next 6 months. He wanted to run me off but he was not aware of my strong faith and my lack of fear concerning these things.


I drove 1500 miles to witness to my father before he died because I was concerned about his alcoholism and the fact that he was also a womanizer and I wanted to take him on a vacation and hopefully wake him up to his need for salvation through the shed blood of Christ Jesus who is the “Son of God”. That was not how it turned out. I soon realized that he was not interested in reconciling with me or The Lord God! He eventually ordered me off of his property, but not before The Holy Spirit of Christ revealed to me that my father was “possessed by Satan”. I did not want to believe that my father was possessed so I tried to shake off this thought but it came back so strong that I had to accept it as factual. I then said to my father “you are possessed by Satan” and I started to slowly walk toward him and he then started walking backwards away from me until he was up against the fence between his property and the neighbors property. I did not know how he became possessed until I had been  living in this small town in Arizona for about 17 years. I had found a radio program on the Internet that offered an alternative world view by a retired orthopedic surgeon in California. This person was also a Christian and did 5 hours of “talk radio” each week day and he had a different guest for each one hour program. It was through this Godly man’s radio program that I started to learn about Free Masonry and eventually learned how my father and all Free Masons become demon possessed and by default are “possessed by Satan”. It was one of this retired surgeon’s guests that revealed this important information to me about Free Masonry. It was the author of “Free Masonry, Deadly From The First Degree” that wrote about how it was when a man first joined Free Masonry that they become demon possessed. It was revealed that this “first degree” ritualistic ceremony was actually a wedding ceremony with”Baal”, who was a false god worshiped by the inhabitants of “the promised land” that the Hebrew people eventually conquered after being led out of slavery in Egypt. After this ceremony, the new member went home with their first demon, even though they were not aware of what had just happened to them. There are two levels of activity in Free Masonry and only some of the members are introduced to the spiritual level or are actually made  aware of the Satanic nature of this wicked secret organization. It is during the 30th degree ceremony that they swear with a sword in their hands to fight to destroy Christianity!


This is part one and it is my desire to continue this revelation about Free Masonry in one or more blog posts that I intend to publish at a later time. There are other similar posts availably at .




How are your thoughts about God shaping your outlook on everything else in life?  The image that we have in our  minds about our Creator does indeed impact our viewpoint concerning people as well as God’s universe and all that is in it. This includes our faith, God’s will, sin, and our willingness to obey that which is written in God’s Word. Psalm 139 deals with some of the aspects of God’s ways and how He would direct our path in life. Recommended reading: Psalm 139 through 150.

The Old Prospector

The Nountaineer

In a certain sense, we are given choices that determine our eternal course in this life. Jesus described these choices as between two paths that take us through either a “straight and narrow gate” or a “wide path” that leads to eternal destruction, and many go therein. This is to many today somewhat of a simplified set of choices that seem to be somewhat outdated or even unrealistic. I can assure you, that to those of you who  doubt that life can be so simple as having these two decisions but it is as true today as it was in Jesus day! We can make the decision to reject the God of the Bible and live that very Godless life which consists of self-gratification and basic selfishness. These people try to do good things to try to satisfy their conscience and do it in the sight of others so that those acquaintances or so-called friends will think well of them but they are still empty inside afterwords when all is said and done, but they never really find true satisfaction!

It is only when these people give up their efforts to find satisfaction in anything other than God Himself! They must fill that empty spot in their soul, that God shaped void that only God can fill and then and only then will they start to find true peace and fulfillment. This is the straight and narrow gate that leads to eternal life! It is a narrow path because our choices are limited yet well-defined by the maker of all things and He and only He has the right to say what is good in His eyes and we must obey. The thing to remember is that God truly loves us and only wants that which is best for us so we must give our will to him and simply “Trust”. Since He created us then he absolutely knows what is best! So then, will you surrender your choices to his guidance and simply trust Him? The narrow path is the best path for both you and I! Jesus said to His disciples “Follow Me” and we must do the same. I have chosen to follow Him and my life has not been the same! I gave Him the title-deed to my life which he already owned but since he has given us free will, we must make the decision to allow Him to take control of our lives and He will do that which is best for our lives since He knows the future!

Will you consider how well you have done, with you in control of your life? Now consider that the Creator of the universe knows how to do it better, much better! Give Him  a chance before it is too late! Our days are numbered and He is the only one who knows how much longer we have to make that very important decision and we do not! Once we die, then our last chance is gone for ever! We are given plenty of evidence in the creation itself to know that He exists. The knowledge of him is built into us but sometime during childhood, our society manages to put enough doubt into us to cause us to procrastinate  and try to manage our lives ourselves. Later we die without making that very important decision and then you are without hope because your life is gone for ever! Please consider that “Straight and Narrow Gate”, while you still can! We have a God-given purpose, try to find it! This is based on a passage in Matthew Chapter 7 verse 13.

The Nountaineer

The Spiritual Gifts from The Holy Spirit are provided to believers when they receive Eternal Life through Faith in their LORD and Savior, Jesus The Messiah or The Word of God who set aside His Prerogative to stay seated on the Throne of Glory, at the Right Hand of The Father. He then, chose to be born a human being, who are created in the image of God. It was Love that caused Him to do this and pity for this vast sea of humanity who were like sheep without a Shepard, wandering to and fro without hope. Mankind had been cursed along with all of creation and without a sinless Savior to become the Final and most complete sacrifice, there was no hope for humanity. After Our LORD paid the Great Price for our salvation, He then returned to Glory and 10 days later He sent the promised Holy Spirit at the time of Pentecost which meant that Jerusalem was filled with those who chose to worship the God of the Jewish people. This was the beginning of the “Church” which is the body of Christ, Also known as the “Bride of Christ” who will someday be snatched away to meet The Lord in the air or upper atmosphere which is  the “Second Heaven”. Actually, it could be anywhere, from where the clouds are to the outer atmosphere or “space”.

Now back to the “Gifts of The Spirit”. Each “true believer” receives at least one spiritual gift and these are available in the books of 1st Corinthians chapters 12, and 14, 1st Peter chapter 4, Ephesians chapter 4, Romans chapter 4 and of course in the book of Acts which describes the coming of The Holy Spirit at Pentecost. I can not speak very much in-depth about the gifts that I do not personally have but know that at least one of the gifts that I have  is “Spiritual Discernment”. Spiritual Discernment is a gift that is very important today but not many seem to have it or they do not yet realize what it is or how to use it! I have found that this gift is somewhat threatening to people, sometimes because members are not certain of their own salvation! If a person with Spiritual Discernment was incorporated into every body of believers then the “Chaff” would be recognized for who they are and removed or made to understand that they are at best seekers and are not allowed to take communion or take part in Church leadership at all!

Today is a time like no other in the history of the Earth. The battle is raging for the hearts, minds, and souls of our children. The enemy of all mankind has conceived all types of traps, snares, and deceptions to keep or prevent as many human beings from knowing the Truth which is God’s Truth and no other. The battle is on Earth yet the primary players are in another realm or dimension. This takes an incredible amount of “Spiritual Discernment” as well as caution when defending against an invisible enemy who hates all of humanity because we are created in the image of God and because God is their primary enemy. That which makes it even more difficult to understand is that the battle has already been won by “The Word of God”, when He died on the cross and paid the sin debt for all who will believe a simple yet astonishing truth. “We are “Saved By Faith”. All other religions are in one form or another, “works based” in their understanding of what is “good” and what is needed for atonement, of one sort or another.

The description of this spiritual battle in the Bible has proven to be absolutely true. I know this from personal experience yet it has taken decades for me to even begin to understand why I have seen and experienced all that I have. I finally turned to the Bible after God personally stepped into my life at the age of 30. There was a long interval where I was like a ship without a rudder because I received Christ as my Savior at the age of 6 and for a variety of reasons why, it took a long time for me to look to “The Book” for some answers.  The main reason is, my parents were not saved and soon afterwords stopped taking myself and my siblings to church. Then not long afterwords, they divorced and I was never properly discipled. The “Word of God” is now like daily food that is every bit as important as food for the body. The better the nutrition for the body then the healthier will be the body, and it is the same for our soul and spirit! Without  feeding daily on God’s word, we become not only malnourished but leave ourselves open to attack by “the enemy”. This does not mean that we are not attacked daily any way, it means that we are better prepared to resist the attacks. I have found that for me it is necessary to listen to the audio Bible daily if possible as well as listening every evening to as many of my favorite Bible expositors as possible. Since I live alone it is possible for me to spend most of my waking hours filling my mind with God’s truths. It is something like an immunization. The enemy still tries to get a foot-hold in my life but when his attacks happen, I know why and do not turn and run but stand my ground with the addition of spiritual armor from God and can even use the LORD’s offensive weapon which is God’s Word!

The “Spiritual Gifts” today are more important than ever in my opinion because the church has been invaded by false Christians and it is primarily  the fault of the Church leaders, who for a couple of reasons at least have allowed anyone with money in their pockets to join or simply attend to support all the Church activities as well as because of pride, which is to increase their numbers and become larger than their competing Churches in their area. I know that this sounds harsh and it is, but the truth needs to be made known. The Body of Christ is in trouble for the lack of integrity and for the lack of concern for the purity of “The Body of Christ”. These children of Satan have infiltrated into the Church , just as they have into our government and worked their way into leadership and are steering the Body of Christ down the wide  road that leads to destruction, just as they are doing to our country! The true believers have been deceived into thinking that all of their church activities are somehow accomplishing Christ’s mission for His Church. The leaders have ignored the importance of the “Spiritual Gifts” that work to keep the “Body of Christ” healthy and protected from the wiles of the devil. Lets face it, the Church is in trouble! Without these gifts being incorporated into the “Body”, we have fallen into the hands and plans of Satan, which is to divert the attention of the Church onto less important things and projects instead of winning souls and seeing that they are properly discipled. One of the main issues that arose  in the “Billy Graham Crusades” was that these people who were making decisions for Christ were not being steered to Godly churches to be properly discipled. Therefore the majority of those who made decisions for Christ, fell away! Many never returned to The Lord.  Some did return, but later in life!

The Primary Purpose of the Church is to worship our Creator with praise and thanksgiving while seeking to obey the “Great Commission” which is to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. The Gospel means “Good News”. That is the good news that our Creator and Redeemer has come and paid the great  price which was necessary to  save us from our sin debt which is owed to a Holy God who must be satisfied by a pure blood sacrifice and only Christ Jesus could pay it! We in the body of Christ need to not only worship God but we are to seek and to save the lost with that same good news. It is actually The Holy Spirit who regenerates the spirit. Our job is to plant the seed of the Word of God and also water the seed that has been planted by others and the Spirit gives the growth.

After we have our worship and fellowship, we are to do these very things in our own neighborhoods and at work and even in our schools and government. We are not to fear the repercussions from unbelievers who jeer and ridicule Christians who truly live out their faith and are obedient to God. These things are to be expected and Jesus Himself said”Because they hated Me, they will also hate you”. And they do, especially if you are obedient! The ungodly want us to hide in our churches and our homes and keep the Word of God out of their hearing and to a great degree they have succeeded in browbeating us into submission. When was the last time that you witnessed to your neighbor or someone at work? It takes courage to risk being rejected yet we are commanded to do just that and be ready for ridicule and scorn! We are also to go into ALL of the world and not just our neighborhoods. There are millions dying every year and going into a Christ-less eternity. If we are not personally called to missions then we are called to support those who do go into the mission field! We are to GIVE even until it hurts and then give even more. I must confess that I am also guilty! I have plans to support missions in a big way as soon as the Lord provides the mineral wealth that I have sat on for the last 24 years. It is all according to his timing and his timing is not my timing, as I have so painfully learned through these many years, even decades!

How can we today truly purify the Church, because the body of Christ has become so very worldly? The prosperity in the western world, and America in particular, today has made the” Body Of Christ” soft and weak! We have become factional, divided into a variety of Christian clubs with many divisions and many distractions that keep the Church from its God-given course of action to “GO” to seek and to save the lost. We need to take a hard look at the early Church and how they worked as a unit, although scattered around the known world through persecution which was hard yet healthy for the True Church. Affluence has made the body of believers soft and unprepared for spiritual warfare which will come as unexpectedly as is needed for the lord to shake the Church into submission and into obedience to God’s Word. Let it happen soon!

I  must confess again that I am not in compliance and I am trying not to allow myself to use my disabilities as an excuse! I am writing as a means of helping myself, along with others who decide to actually read what God has led me to write because I look to the Lord and His Spirit to give me the words and concepts that will help build the Body of Christ as well as bring Glory to Christ! I must daily refresh my understanding of His word through study, prayer seeking His guidance by the leading of His Spirit. A daily relationship is just as necessary with your spouse as it is with The Creator of The Universe. We must have spiritual nourishment as well as nutrition for the body on a daily basis. I have found that both reading the Word of God and listening to the best Bible teachers is the daily nourishment that I need personally.

NASA Hubble Telescope Image of the M84 Galaxy, Massive Black Hole

NASA Released today this single image of a super-massive black hole taken by the imaging spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The super-massive black hole is large enough for 300 million of our suns, which is called 300 million solar masses, to fit within the black hole and is in the galaxy called M84 which is part of the Virgo cluster of galaxies. M84 is about 26 light years from the center of its galaxy and about 50 million light years from Earth. This same super-massive black hole is moving at 880,000 miles per hour. The relatively close by galaxy called M87 also has a super-massive black hole relatively near its galaxy’s center.

The heavens truly declare the Glory of GOD and this is regularly confirmed by the Hubble telescope as well as others both in orbit and on the ground. The Bible has been confirmed by scientific data such as this.  More and more scientists are at least secretly acknowledging  the fact that creation is the only possible conclusion available but might lose their tenure or their job altogether, if they speak their minds. May GOD be glorified through His wonderful creation day by day even in this secular society. May the LORD be glorified.
