Very well written letter, Pastor Olsen (Peter). I am sharing your words on my blog because they echo truth as I understand it. While I admit having some personal issues with some of the statements made so clearly here, the fact is that in this spiritual battle our planet is currently in need of someone to say them. And they need to be said loudly, and strongly and without hesitation. While not so eloquently, that is why I’ve republished my series called REVEALED at this time. In it’s pages I’ve given update footnotes which show where we are at in this spiritual control of our lives and indicate where we are headed as can be found in the Book of The Revelation – as found in the Bible. You are invited to read it and perhaps see the Truth for yourself.
ETM Press Release – ETM Publishing of Oklahoma, U.S.A. has just republished the second volume of its series of books called REVEALED. It has been thirty years since Robert O. Robbins’ book called What the Righteous Desire to See was first published in 1988. At that time it received mixed reviews with people showing less interest in its historical proof of prophecy than the more popular pretribulation theory being widely taught at that time. Since that first publication date, much has happened concerning world events. The Iron Curtain was torn down shortly after this book was first published with Russia becoming more westernized shortly thereafter, causing the world politics to seemingly get closer as Robbins implied would happen in his book.
The radical Islamic believers have raised their heads once again in the world’s history and have declared jihad against the U.S. and all other of the world’s unbelievers in the Islamic faith, proving them to continue to be the “scourge of the Earth” even as Robbins implied they would be in his book. And the super-rich of the world, the multi-billionaires who control most of the true wealth and productivity of the planet, have begun to show their true intent with the “forgiveness” of the bankers for the economic crash in the U.S. in 2009 at the end of George W. Bush’s second term of Presidential office. And now the election of a presumed billionaire to the presidency who has had no previous political experience could fall in line with prophecy according to Robbins. While not in detail, all these events can be found lightly indicative of things which the Apostle John saw in his vision and wrote about in The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ nearly 2000 years ago.
It is because history seems to be marching on at a much faster pace than previously toward the fulfillment of prophecy that E.T.M. Publishing has decided to republish this book series. The main body of the series is the same as it was in its original edition, but the original book has been broken into four books which appear now in two volumes under the name of REVEALED.
“This was done to make the work less ‘intimidating,’” said Mr. Robbins. “I don’t claim to be a great writer. The way I have chosen to understand and explain prophecy is one which was taught by Hebraic schools during “Old Testament” times, and it was the way Jesus taught his disciples to understand prophecies and parables. I explain this system in Volume One of REVEALED. In Volume Two, I have carefully correlated the events prophesied by John in The Revelation with history. While I go beyond what can be proven by history and current events to be accurate prophecy, and while I make some predictions which may surprise people about what I believe will occur in the near future, I am the first to recognize that the proof of prophecy can only be absolute with the passage of time. What I predict, like perhaps the way the ‘mark of the beast’ shall be given, may not occur the exact way I have stated in the book but since the mark represents an economic system for materialistic control then the purpose is more important than the method.”
Since the original words of the book have been kept as first published for the reader to see that there have been no significant changes in what Robbins said thirty years ago, updating has been done in the form of footnotes. Volume One contains two separate books, The Prophet’s Language and The Prophet’s Dictionary are both presented to teach the reader the system of understanding the prophetic words and where they can be found in the Christian Holy Bible. Volume Two gives the “interpretation” of the figurative language found in The Book of The Revelation into literal language and the correlation of the prophecy with history, called What the Righteous Desire to See.
Both volumes are now available for anyone to obtain at Amazon.com. It can either be read “free” through the Prime membership library or purchased through the Kindle bookstore. Printed copies are not yet available. Profits from the sale of this work will be used toward the expenses of publicizing and distributing this message of hope and toward the ministry of helping those in need as required.

Excellent read of Espirational’s stance of religious faith written by Rogene Robbins.
I walk the middle path. It can be a lonely place to be. It can be a dangerous and frightening place to be, caught between two extremes at war with each other with verbal, spiritual and even sometimes physical shots being fired by both sides. But as a Christian who tries to follow the teachings and example of the Master Teacher it is where I am called to be, shining the light of God’s love.
So, what does walking the middle path mean for me? Well, it means being a Christian. It means not being an “Evangelical” or a “Progressive.” It means not being a Democrat or a Republican. It means not being “conservative” or “liberal.” It means believing that being “pro-life” does not end with the birth of a child. It means believing in protecting and caring for children once they are here. Protecting and respecting the lives of individuals with…

This short question asks the most important question everyone needs to answer in today’s world. Reblogged this from espirational.com .
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trustin him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. — Romans 15:13 NIV (from Bible Gateway,com)
Here in the U.S. we like to throw the name of God around a lot. Our “pledge of allegiance” to the flag of our country contains the words “one Nation under God.” Even our money has the words “in God we Trust.” But do we — really?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust one man alone to solve all the problems in the world and in our country?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust the government to create a just society?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust our guns to keep us safe without killing an innocent friend, neighbor or family member?
Do we trust God? Or…
