Leaving Twitter and other BigTech companies …

Dear Friends,

After about 10 years using Twitter as a social media platform with more then 8000 followers I have posted my last Tweet today. I’ve decided to look for a new more decentralized social media platform which works a lot like Twitter.

My opinion is that BigTech companies have to much power. Microsoft, Google (Youtube), Facebook (WhatsApp, Instagram), Apple and many others are entering our lives and are monitoring whatever we do.

Coming years I’ll be investigating other ways to use the internet without ‘Big Brother’ watching me. Personally I believe there is no way back but I’ll try every legal way to minimize social control.

My new home instead of Twitter is: https://mstdn.social/@wmvanderwolf.
I’ll have to build up back again, but hey … I love challenges.

Peace,

W.

Download my NEW book here for FREE

 

Dear friends,

No conspiracies, no false theories, no vain prophecies or brutal lies, just facts showing where the human race is headed in the years to come. Download my NEW book here for FREE.

Currently my book is only available in Dutch. I will also make it available for download here in English as soon as I finish the translation.

A ‘Christian Perspective on the Digital Age‘ addresses the challenges Christians face in our time. In the Bible book of Revelation, we read that there will come a time when no one will be able to buy or sell unless he or she has the mark, name, or number of the name of the beast.

These prophetic words of the apostle John are as relevant today as they were in his day. Are professing Christians in our day ready for this time? Are Christians watchful and do they understand the signs of the times? Do they (still) believe that the prophetic words in the Bible cannot be broken?

In this booklet I want to call on God’s people to understand the signs of the times and to work seriously on the calling to which the Lord Jesus has called each of us personally.

Let’s take care of each other and of the people in the world around us. While we still can, let us urge everyone to follow the savior of the world, Jesus Christ. After all, the Lord Himself has called us to do so.

Have a great day.

Blessings,

Walter

Intelligent skeptic fascinated by what this Christian says!

Dear Friends,

Just think for a minute before you rush off this morning … What’s most important to you in life? Is it your personal happiness? Or is it righteousness?

During evangelism, Ray Comfort encounters a young and intelligent skeptic who doesn’t believe in the Bible or in morality…but his eyes get opened to some profound truths during this interview.

Get Ray’s devotional ‘Jesus in Red’ here. I can highly recommend it. Love it!

“Alarm bells should go off when we see the redness of blood, or red stop signs, red fire engines, etc. And if anything should set off an alarm, it’s the words of Jesus. However, having His words in red is nothing new. What is new about this devotional is that each day’s devotion looks only at His words, and the reader is encouraged to further read them in context, as part of the devotional exercise.”

Have a great day,

W.

10 Ways to Ruin Your Life in 2021 … ;-)

Dear friends,

All the best and blessings for 2021. Despite the fireworks ban by the Dutch government, nationwide many fireworks were set off last night. I think many people wanted to express their frustration about the year 2020 by ignoring the ban and taking to the streets anyway.

Anyway, … an interesting new year awaits us with perhaps new challenges for each of us personally. We will see where time will take us. Today’s global developments on – political, financial / economic, scientific / technical, moral / ethical and healthcare related issues – call upon us as Christians to urge each other to cherish God’s Word even more and close The Word in our hearts.

Below I want to give you 10 practical tips for 2021 that will in any case ruin your life if you are not vigilant the coming year!

1. Believe that your ideas have no consequences;
2. Live beyond your means;
3. Feed an addiction;
4. Run with fools;
5. Carelessly give your heart away;
6. Tolerate evil;
7. Make secondary things ultimate and ultimate things secondary;
8. Believe that this life is all about you;
9. Live for instant gratification;
10. And last but not least: avoid accountability. ️

Best regards,
Peace,

Walter

CHAPTER 13
1
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9
If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Ovens 30 Day Survival Challenge: THE MOVIE (Canadian Rockies)

Canadian Rocky Mountains

The feature-length movie version of Ovens and Fowler’s month surviving in the Canadian Rocky Mountain bush!

Join them on their epic journey into the wild, as they catch and cook fish and game, pan for gold, forage local plants and fungus, build bear safe platforms in the trees, and SO MUCH MORE!

Survivalist

Greg is a self-taught survivalist from Canal Flats, British Colombia, who, since he was a boy, has read nearly every book on the topic. When he is not out in the wilderness, he is a professional dry-waller.

He started his first bow drill fire when he was thirteen and spent the next forty years learning bushcraft and studying plants and edibles. He has even developed some of his own survival techniques and is a skilled hunter with both a bow and a slingshot.

Alone

Greg was on Season 3 of History Channel’s “Alone”, where he survived with no human contact for 51 days (over seven weeks) before hypothermia caught up with him in the Patagonian wilderness.

Enjoy!
