"...Be faithful until the end and I will give you the crown of life."
- Book of Revelation 2 : 10
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
- 2 Timothy 4 : 7
Eventually, 'everything' on this : planet, solar system and galaxy will melt with the elements in a fervent heat and thee 'ONLY' thing that will endure eternally are those things we did for the Kingdom of GOD and for the Glory & Honor of our Creator : GOD !
- 2 Peter 3 : 10-12; after the Millenium*
( Astronomers have : studied and photographed galaxies many, many light years away colliding with others*)
Most of us will never win an : 'Olympic Medal' nor be able to win Fifa's 'World Cup' nor a Hollywood 'Oscar' and much less any million $$$ Lottery !!! To tell you the truth; this unworthy servant of Jesus Christ has only won one prize during his life and that was in his high school days for his 'Caligraphy Skills' !!! Years ago, the art department in my high school awarded me a cheaply made trophy probably valued at some $ 15.00 back then 'BUT' years later my 'father' threw it in the trash without consulting me; it was then and there that I realized that 'ALL' prizes won on this planet are only 'Temporary.' Riches $$$ come and go, even famous sport athletes are known to squander their $$$ millions; and this servant of GOD has read in the newspapers about several 'once famous athletes' having to even sell/pawn their 'Olympic Medals, Super Bowl Ring etc...' very simply because once their fame subsided so did their sponsorships and their $$$ money in their bank account !!!
Most of 'my life' I've felt somehow that i'm part of some 'underdog conspiracy' this was true in my : high school days, in my college days, at my job and even at Church 'believe it or not' !!! In high school I attempted to try out for almost every single sport ( Hey, it got you out of regular classes if you made the team !!! ) In almost every 'tryout' I barely made the team ( soccer, football, tennis*) 'BUT' honestly speaking most of the time my coaches had me on the bench; I was an 'average joe' not the most 'athletic' on the team nor a complete incompetent !!! In one of the first Churches that I attended this servant of GOD felt led to become a minister 'BUT' for some unknown reason 'unbeknownst to me' my Pastor always passed on me 'BUT' he did managed to allow most of my fellow brothers in Christ which were the same age as me into the ministry ( Most of them were his relatives*) Years later this servant of GOD checked up on that Church and he found out that all four of those who had been allowed to enter the ministry and get their 'Ministry License/Credential' had all moved 'on and out' of that particular Church because they came to 'disagree' on certain 'theological' and 'leadership' issues that affected that Church !!!
Despite not having a 'perfect pastor' this servant of GOD moved on and forgave one of my first pastor's for his spiritual shortcomings; for I realized that I myself was far from perfection myself and that in reality it is 'GOD' and GOD alone who promotes His servants at His appointed time !!! ( The Church of GOD is composed of 'imperfect people' broken and abused vessels who the 'Holy Spirit' : Heals, Delivers and Fully restores into the Body of Christ*) As I matured as believer this servant of GOD realized that one doesn't need a 'Ministerial Credential' to serve GOD in many different several ways; most of us are just 'NOT' gifted with 'Public Speaking' skills nor seem to possess an ounce of Charisma 'BUT' GOD gave everyone of His children at least one 'Gift' !!! ( Ephesians 4 : 8 )
As the years have gone by this 'imperfect vessel of GOD' has grown and become spiritually much stronger as he has matured in his Christian walk 'Unfortunately' there were some brothers and sisters in Christ who I had met when I was 'first saved' that for whatever reason abandoned the faith; some did so because they unfortunately witnessed a little 'too much hypocrisy' at Church, others left very simply because they allowed their 'Flesh' to get the better of them; meanwhile this servant of GOD just kept his little two eyes on Jesus Christ !!!
One of the first Christian Films that I saw as a newborn Christian was 'Ordinary Guy' ( You can find it on youtube*) its about the story of an 'Average Christian' who really doesn't have the gift of being the 'Worship Leader' nor the speaking skills of a Pastor or Christian leader; 'BUT' the film communicated a very important message and that was that GOD has 'Numerous' uses for all of His children in the 'Body of Christ' !!!

While most of us have never participated directly in a marathon nor in any Olympic sprint event, every single human being on the face of this earth by default is part of 'The Race of Life' this race lasts longer than 2 hours and shorter than 100 years for most 'BUT' make no mistake about it GOD expects you to be on the move; after all you and I already beat over 200+ million other 'sperm cells' to get to where you are today; so don't give up you've already made it this far in Christ !!!
Every single human being on this planet has been born in the middle of an ongoing 'War in Heaven' that began in 'eternity past' and that continues to have massive collateral damage to this very day under this heaven !!! "NO" human soul is exempted from this War; some atheists honestly believe that its all a 'Christian Myth' and yet some fellow Christians somehow act and believe as if they are exempted from it all !!! Satan will try to replicate what he did to Job and his family upon as many other human families he can in so much as GOD allows him to !!! ( Kill, Steal and Destroy as many and as much as he can !!! )
As the years have gone by ( and they sure do seem to go fast !!! ) this vessel of GOD has continued to 'Press Forward' despite many, many obstacles that seem to get in our Christian Walk !!! 'NO' it hasn't been easy 'BUT' by the pure grace of GOD and the power of the Holy Spirit it is that this servant of Jesus Christ is still standing by 'Faith' and faith alone !!! Additionally, as I have matured in Christ Jesus this servant of GOD has learned through 'Trail and Error' to put our sight on Jesus Christ and Him alone !!! I state this because I have witnessed one too many fellow believers who 'Gave Up' and returned to the 'World' and their excuse was that most people in the Church were just as bad and unholy with them as those in 'The World' !!! Very truly, when we all put our sight on Jesus Christ alone we won't be able to see the imperfections of others and the 'Blunt Truth' of it all is that the 'Church is not yet full of hypocrites; there's always room for one more !!!' ( Romans 3 : 10 "No one is righteous before GOD , not even one !!!" )
In conclusion, DON'T give up our REDEMPTION is closer than ever; you have made it this far; the worse is over; the Tribulation period has been set aside for all those who : rejected, ignored and belittled the Grace of GOD and the atonement of Jesus Christ on the Cross during this 'Age of Grace' that is soon to come to an end. Congratulations you've survived the 'Boot Camp of Life' here on earth and you, me and hundreds of millions of fellow believers all over this planet are going to overcome what's left of this race 'NOT' by anything other than by the Holy Spirit !!! ( Zechariah 4: 6 ) The temporary 'Prince of this World' ( John 14:30 ) has NOTHING on us, for we have overcome by the 'Blood of the Lamb' !!! Those who led many souls to the feet of Christ Jesus and all those who : teached, preached and abided in the WORD of GOD here on earth shall be called 'Great in the Kingdom of GOD' !!! ( Matthew 5 : 19 ) Maybe you feel like you've never won any major prizes here on earth; NOW is your chance to partake in thee greatest and thee most important races of ALL; for no one will be able to take their : Olympic Medals, their GOLD Rings, Trophies, Bank Accounts with them; only what you and I do here on earth for the Kingdom of GOD will build up our riches in Heaven !!! ( Matthew 6 : 19-21 )
In sum, this 'Christian Race' is 'NOT' an easy one; in fact our LORD Jesus Christ Himself revealed and warned us that 'MOST' of humanity opts and chooses to continue on the 'Wide Path/Road' that leads unto eternal destruction and that it is 'Few' who choose and find the 'Narrow Gate' path that leads unto eternal life !!! ( Matthew 7 : 13 ) This servant of GOD has learned to give thanks to GOD our Creator in everything; this vessel of the Holy Spirit fully acknowledges that 'MOST' fellow Christian believers in : Asia and Africa and elsewhere are facing a much more 'harsher life' and much greater persecution than in most Western nations. Unfortunately, each year I come across an article about a Christian Pastor who committed suicide mainly because of 'depression and discouragement' most of the time it is found out that those Pastors felt discouraged and felt like a total failure because the Churches that they led and Pastored showed no signs of growth; this servant of GOD has been there too, there have been days when I felt like a total and absolute failure and I asked GOD where did I go wrong ? I had great dreams of accomplishing 'this and that' for the Kingdom of GOD 'BUT' things just didn't go as I had believed that they would 'nonetheless' this vessel of GOD has learned to 'NEVER' compare himself to anyone of GOD's other vessels or servants; GOD will use 'ALL' of His vessels in due time; meanwhile He is preparing you, me and many others and sometimes it takes a little more time for some of us to become useful than others 'BUT' GOD will use you 'IF' you allow His Holy Spirit to.
Very truly, every single believer was put here on earth for a purpose that 'ONLY' he/ she can fully accomplish. GOD does 'NOT' make mistakes; there is a song a hymn that no one else can compose nor sing but you, there is a book that nobody else can write but you, there is a Ministry that only you can fully fulfill; this planet needs the gifts that GOD ALMIGHTY deposited in you; so let your light shine before this present darkness; get up in the name of JESUS CHRIST and let that light that GOD deposited in you so shine before all men !!!
By : Mario Romano. EUinProphecy.com was born inside the library of one of the University of California campuses ( UC System *) in between some of my classes there some time ago. Additionally, Mario also began to study the stock market and stocks on the public/student computers at the library when not in a class. In those days I had saved about $2,000 dollars ( part-time student jobs*) and was learning how to day trade stocks; I purchased $ 1,000 dollars of Amazon stock and another $ 1,000 in Apple stock when both of then were still trading at about $ 13.00 dollars a piece, last I checked had I 'NOT' sold those stocks I could have been a $$$ Millionaire by now !!! Yes, had this servant of GOD not have given up on Amazon and Apple early on, his reward for being a 'Patient Investor' would have been been great 'BUT' because he panicked as the stock market crashed and many 'Dot Coms' went into bankruptcy he sold his small stake in both companies and later lost those $ 2,000 in 'EToys' a company that eventually went bankrupt itself !!! Ladies and gentlemen; brothers and sisters in Christ; the crux of it all is that the 'ONLY' thing that matters in this ever increasingly decaying and dying planet is what we have done for the 'Kingdom of GOD' here on earth; GOD is 'NOT' going to reward any : Doctors, Ph.D's, Policemen, Firemen etc in heaven ( For they have already been recompensated & received their $$$ reward here ) GOD is 'ONLY' going to reward those who were faithful to Him and those who ABIDED in His WORD here on earth; don't be surprised when 'WE' get to heaven that you are going to meet fellow believers who were never on 'Christian T.V' getting the biggest rewards for being 'Soul Winners' ( There are mighty soul winners in : Africa, India, South America and China & elsewhere*) GOD is going to put your works to the test; through fire to see ( 1 Corinthians 3 : 13-14 ) if what you really did for the LORD here on earth was done for the flesh ( Fame, Riches, like T.V. Prosperity Preachers*) or in the 'Holy Spirit' seeking 'NO' earthly recognition, praise reward 'BUT' done for the Glory of GOD !!! This unworthy vessel of the Holy Spirit as you can see has made many mistakes in his short 'Christian Walk' here on earth 'BUT' even though he may have lost out on Apple and Amazon stock; he has invested some 20+ years in this ministry of Bible Prophecy and while he may never be found in any : Bible Prophecy conference, on Radio nor T.V it is his prayer that this little website and its content make the 'Gates of Hell' tremble one day for the Glory and Honor of GOD !!! This 'Little Website' is now reaching all of the Spanish Speaking world as well as the English speaking world; announcing the 'Soon Return of JESUS CHRIST' !!! EUinProphecy.com is necessary because eventually most websites like this one will be outlawed during the 'Tribulation Period' the Communist Government of China already is doing that in China taking down all websites that : Question, Criticize and Challenge the Totalitarian Chinese Communist Party and its untouchable leaders !!!
