Note to Readers
It is my desire that as you read what God in His love has shown and in some cases spoke to me that you will feel His presence. May you be uplifted and drawn close to Jesus.
This was not easy for me to do and in fact I did not want to share it at all because I did not want people to think that I was crazy. I cannot describe the terrible feeling that I felt when I refused to share. At the same time I cannot describe the feeling of peace that I felt when I agreed to share. At first I did not have a computer or the knowledge to operate one at all. I had never typed anything since my freshman year in academy but it has slowly come back to me. O how I wish that I had taken English class more seriously.
I do not consider myself to be anyone special at all. I am glad that I got to see and hear the things that I have tried to describe. I do not consider any content to be anything new but that it is a reminder. Why would God want to remind His people? I feel that the end is very near and that many do not realize it. Jesus is not willing that any should perish.
I always welcome questions. I have tried to describe things well but I may have overlooked something that some may notice. Do not hesitate to ask.
May you be blessed as you read!

Visions and Conscience Speaking
The question has often been asked, "Are these actual visions where you saw something or are they just dreams?" I will try to explain exactly what happens and you may decide for yourself. These revelations usually happen during the night or early morning. I have always been in bed when I was shown anything. The conscience speaking has been at different times or could be any time. Let me explain. When I have been given a vision, it is so powerful and is always like I am right there as in real life. I can feel the power and at the same time peace and I am in no way afraid. I am just awed by what I see and usually just stare and look around. I am so amazed at how I can be shown things so quickly. I would compare it to being in a room and not seeing anything and then turn the light on and not having the brightness bother your eyes.
These visions happen suddenly with the exception of the one I call "Jesus Tearfully Begging on May 22, 1999." I could feel God's presence just before this one and I knew I was going to have a vision. It was a very humbling feeling but yet a feeling of great responsibility. During these visions I am totally involved as if I am right there looking and I do not think of any thing else. It's like I am in Heaven and it is so peaceful and worry free. In the vision I called "Tree Over River" I was so at ease until a voice said, "NOT YET" that startled me and then I realized that I would have to be returned to here, I just hung my head in disappointment. It was a terrible feeling. When I raised my head and looked to my right I saw an Angel walking away. By the way he walked I noticed that he seemed weary. He just walked along the river a short distance and then walked right across the water like it was the everyday thing. He glanced back at me as He was walking across the river and that's when I saw that his eyes were glowing red. I cannot describe the eyes of Heavenly beings. Our eyes are dead in comparison.
Most of the time when I am given a vision, anything that is thought in my mind such as a question of what I was shown, is spoken instantly to me. People have wondered how I know who is speaking. It is a very clear and distinct speaking. I have heard it many times and I never forget it.
Some articles I have just called dreams but if I got to see something I should have called them visions because that is what they were. I am unaware of how long they last. As far as I am concerned I would desire that they never end so I can stay.
One quiet morning not long ago I felt God's presence near and I felt a small movement of air as the presence left me (so it seemed). My arm was outstretched and I cannot describe the awesome feeling of peace. I so desire God's presence and look forward to the day when I can stay. As I have tried to describe what I have been shown, sometimes there are no words in human language that do justice. All I can say is Jesus is everything. If you have a personal relationship with Him you will get to see it all someday and then you will understand.
I hope that this is clear and can be understood well. Some people have had many questions and others none. That's why I would like to have better writing skills to describe things. Questions never bother me. Please let me know of questions you may have.
Vision #1: Some Time in 1976 Angel Music Here is the experience of hearing Angel music. I was sitting at my desk doing paperwork in the mechanic shop when I worked as a mechanic for a drywall company in Grand Island, Nebraska. I was busy filling out maintenance forms completely and filling them away. There was no radio playing and no sound equipment in the building...All was very quiet as no one was around needing anything. As I sat at the desk...suddenly I heard the most beautiful harmony I have ever heard coming from up high on my left. It was not real loud but it was enough to grab my attention and make me look up in that direction to see. The music was a soprano harmony that I had never heard before. It lasted approximately 5 seconds. I have never forgotten that sound to this day. When I hear people singing to this day and hear beautiful harmony that comes near to this...it bring tears to my eyes as it is so reverent, beautiful and glorious. If I am in a group such as in a congregation at a church and hear this sound...I must stop, listen and usually dry my eyes. Sacred heavenly music is so beautiful...I long to be there. We are told that eyes have not seen nor ears have not heard what Jesus has planned for those that love Him. It's true as at times He has shared glimpses with me and I try in human words to share them to who will listen. It is so easy to get bogged down with the cares of this world that we take our eyes off the most important things. I pray that we all keep our focus on Jesus and Heavenly things. Steve Tanner
Vision #2: April 19, 1999
Seeing Jesus with Children
On the early morning of April 19, 1999 between 3 or 4 in the morning it was as though I was standing on a hill looking down. Someone came around a small rise walking and there were lots of kids following Him. Wow, it was Jesus! It really is Jesus! The kids are excited, asking Him questions and as they are walking, Jesus leans from side to side talking to all of them. They appear to be approximately 9 or 10 years of age. Now they are close enough so I can really see Jesus’ face real clear. Jesus is even excited. (It reminded me of how an excited group of kids from the city act when coming to our farm and one of our boys wants to show them everything). But Jesus’ face; I looked and stared at his face. The scars, his forehead and the sides of his face. The sides of his face are really scarred…I felt sad when I saw the scars. They must have beaten Jesus nearly to death before He ever got to the cross. When I saw His face I just stared at it in amazement. (It’s like people staring at disabled people today). Jesus has brown eyes and He also appears to be between 30 and 40 years of age. His face is slightly narrow. He does look very noble in spite of the scars. Jesus would never win a beauty contest. As He passed me I turned my head in that direction and looked in the distance. I saw in the far distance a golden colored city. It was a long way off but I could see mainly the tops of things. Then I looked over my right shoulder to the right and about 20 feet away was an angel looking straight at me. As I looked straight into his eyes, momentarily he turned his eyes downward so I could not see his eyes anymore. He had large golden brown eyes. He was dressed in brilliant white but not a solid white like an object. You could see the folds in his robe, but was like a cloud or above clouds when you look down on clouds from a plane, and then the vision was over. I was back in bed, but believe me I was awake. It was about 4 a.m. I felt depressed when I had to be here. It was like I was right in heaven and felt the excitement and everything and then having to come back here. I had questions on my mind and they were answered. The first question was, I don’t want to be here, and a small voice said, "It won’t be for long". The second question was about the kids or why the kids and I was shown when Jesus comes for us just as we leave this earth our oldness falls off like a bathrobe and is left here in a crumpled pile. I saw lots of people rising upward and leaving crumpled piles. It was cool. Then I was told to write down what I saw and I was left. I sat up in my bed and wrote it down in my prayer journal. Donna, my wife woke up then and thought I was crazy for being up so early in the morning. I don’t remember her reaction, but she never bothered me. It seemed as though I could not write fast enough and didn’t care about spelling (Note: When morning came I felt very rested, more than usual). The following day I wondered why Jesus would show Himself to a person like me. Isaiah 6:5 says, "Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips for mine eyes have seen the king, the Lord of Hosts." That night I went back through my prayer journal. On December 30, 1998 after watching 3 ABN Presents, I wrote in my prayer journal a prayer that Danny Shelton said to pray. "Lord Jesus, Use me in a powerful way to tell others about you." And again on January 1, 1999 I prayed, "Lord Jesus, Use me in some way to your glory." I thought, Wow! Now what am I supposed to do? I thought about this a lot. I never told about my dream the following Sabbath at church because I thought people would think I was crazy. The second Sabbath I was taking a shower early Sabbath morning and I got a strong impression to tell about what I had seen. I can remember not wanting to and the tears that I shed. It’s a good thing I was in the shower. At church it was my Sabbath to teach the adult lesson study and during the lesson I told what I had seen. I guess I did tell ________ the week before and told him a little of it. He never really seemed to pay much attention, at least I thought. I do remember breaking down when I talked about the angel. Later in the week I received a letter from ___________ telling that the Holy Spirit was present and that she had received a blessing from what I saw (Praise God!). She also told me to read Selected Messages, Book 1, Page 129 and the whole chapter. I will not hesitate anymore to tell others what I saw. If people have a desire to hear, I will tell it to them. I was still not satisfied what all this meant. Why would God show Himself to a farmer like me? Although I have seen miracles happen here on the farm, I thought there must be some special meaning. Acts 2:17…And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Note: I failed to describe the scene as well as I should have. The sky in Heaven is a darker shade of blue then we have here. The grass was more green. I could see that no fertilizer was needed (I am a farmer and can see things like that). There was no dead stuff in the grass and I never noticed any weeds or anything wrong with it. It was perfect everywhere. There were also very long and low rolling hills. Again there is a different light there. It is not sunlight, as we know it. The light is a comfortable light. I never noticed any shadows. Praise God! Like I said, I did not want to be brought back here but was quickly told that it won’t be for long. Friends, let’s finish the work of helping people choose Jesus. Then He will take us home. Amen! Praise God! Also I would like to tell about the angel that revealed himself to me. I think I was most impressed when he bowed his head as Jesus walked by. It helped me to understand the meaning of "Holy" much better. Even the angels bow to Jesus. There was no age on his face. He had naturally curly blonde hair 1-2 inches in length. His hair was nicely groomed and I could see his ears. I wish I could find human words to describe his eyes. They were golden brown. Our eyes look very dim and dull compared to angel eyes. The way that I was being watched I know that they see everything. He could read my thoughts because as soon as I had a question he would inject the answer immediately into my mind. His eyes glowed and that’s the part I cannot explain. There is no way any of us can hide anything because we are watched very intently. I know that even our smallest thoughts are all monitored as well as the things we see and hear. Heaven is a grand place; I want to be there with Jesus! Amen and Praise God! Steve Tanner
Vision #3: May 17, 1999
Focus on Jesus
On the early morning of May 17, 1999, I heard a small voice speaking to me. Jesus is waiting to pour out his Holy Spirit, but His people are not ready to receive it. "How do we do that?" was my question. Focus on Jesus was the reply. This was repeated several times…To Focus on Jesus! Television was mentioned as a big distraction. Television is ok but do not waste time on watching pointless entertainment. Also our minds must be cleared of worldly cares and stuff. I saw that Jesus will not interfere unless He is desired. If He is desired He will be there.
The message seemed to be urgent. It was like He is begging us. It was like a dam holding water that is about to break. The message was very urgent. I was told to study Acts 2 because there is so much there and I felt like we are missing something.
Friends, I am a farmer and a school bus driver, not a preacher. All I can do is tell others what I was shown and given, but the message was very urgent. I always thought it was the job of a preacher to lead people to Jesus. I was told that many preachers are not connected to the power and you can’t share something you don’t have. I would encourage all, Pastors and people alike to ask Jesus to use them to finish the work. Ask to be used in a powerful way. Jesus will use you. If He can use me, He can use anybody. He is looking because it was clear how urgent He wants to pour out His holy spirit. It was also very clear that Jesus loves everybody and is excited when people choose Him. It was also pointed out to me that Satan knows what is going on with what Jesus wants to do. All of these wars, disasters, and severe storms are to serve as a distraction and to take away as many people as possible before they can make their decision to serve Jesus. It’s almost like Election Day is getting close and Satan is bullying people. Friends, the push is on. I pray that you will choose Jesus. You will be glad you did. No matter what you’ve done or said He will forgive you. He has a gift to give you and He can hardly wait. You won’t be disappointed. Steve Tanner
Vision #4: May 18, 1999
For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved, John 3:16-17.
Around 7a.m. on May 18, 1999 I received a conscience message on the problem that many people and churches are facing on the wedding band. All people are at different levels in their faith, trust, and religious experience. I was told that to force them to a higher level is sin. That makes us no better than the Jewish leaders of Jesus’ day. We should extend warm hands of fellowship and get them involved in church activities where they can be used. We should not put them in positions where a person of high experience is needed. Everyone needs to feel needed and appreciated. I was shown that Satan is the one who causes a stir over this. We should no attack people of a lesser experience like a swarm of deadly killer bees. They will leave and never return. Then Satan has won. Satan knows that people are especially hurt when they are picked on about the way they look and dress. It may take some of us a lifetime to get to a proper faith relationship with Jesus. It is our job to demonstrate Jesus’ love for them and of his wonderful forgiveness and to get them to choose to serve him. It is the Holy Spirit’s job to do all the other things Jesus wants them to do. Jesus is a leader, not a get behind and drive with an electric cattle prod. Our job is to get them to focus on Jesus.
Praise God for His wonderful grace. Amen.
Vision #5: May 22, 1999
Jesus’ Tearfully Begging
Early Sabbath morning on May 22, 1999 around 4:50, I once again saw Jesus straight out in front of me. I saw His narrow, scarred face. I cannot stress enough the terrible scars. Again I stared. His beard lines are even jagged. How terrible must have been the cruelty that Satan caused men to do. Only a person that is totally evil could do something like that. Although Jesus has a terrible scarred face, He still looks noble. His eyes are brown and definitely full of love and understanding. Never doubt that! I was moved by what I saw and sat up in bed. Later at 5:26 that morning, again I saw Jesus standing there with His arms outstretched and sobbing loudly with tears running down His face begging for people to accept Him. He said, "I have paid the price, please accept me." To anyone who reads this I sincerely hope you will choose Jesus.
Vision #6: June 14, 1999
Leaving this Earth to Heaven
On the early morning of June 14, 1999, I was shown once again the scene of people rising from this earth to meet Jesus. When I originally described this scene I did not spend much time describing it because I was so excited about seeing the whole thing. Praise God for his direction! This time I was shown this scene from three places; up close, back from a short distance, and then from up in the air looking down. I saw people standing and looking up. When they reached their hands up (like reaching to take a hold of something), all the oldness and sinfulness of their bodies just fell off like a robe. As their hands were stretched upward, their childlike bodies arose quickly upward. All the oldness was left behind in a crumpled pile. This was very exciting for me to watch. The ground was nearly barren with what looked like clumps of grass here and there. It was approximately one foot tall or so, but was dead looking and bent over with the tops touching the ground. The light was the same as when I saw Jesus walking with the kids in Heaven. It is not sunlight. I just don’t know how to describe it. It is a comfortable light.
The faces of the people looked happy and full of excitement. I did not even attempt to identify anybody.
The background was black to the ground and as high as I could see. It was blacker than smoke from burning tires. It was almost like a solid object, but it was very clear and light where the people were looking up and taking off. If this was a black cloud like was used to protect the children of Israel from Pharaoh’s army, I can see why Pharaoh’s army came to a stand still. Praise God for what He does for his people!
I pray that you have chosen Jesus. What little He has shown me makes this world seem like a place where you don’t want to be. I know I definitely want to experience Heaven and all there is to see. Amen.
Vision #7: September 11, 1999
End Time Final Decisions
Friends, before us are a series of events that will determine several things about you. These events will test your knowledge of the Bible and whether you really believe what it says. You will learn to depend totally on Jesus or you will turn from him and follow the ways of man. I f you do what the Bible says and let Jesus lead you, you will be saved. If you follow the ways of man, you will be lost.
Let's examine one of these events that are just before us. I believe it is closer than you think. Before we get into this, let's pray for guidance by God's spirit of direction. (Kneel) "Lord Jesus; we humbly bow before you. Give us wisdom; give us knowledge. Help us to act on your leading. Lord, I know that you love us individually. It is my prayer that each person present will allow you to prepare them for things that are about to happen… In Jesus' Holy name, Amen.’’
Turn in your Bible to Rev. 13. This whole chapter is important. I would like to emphasize verses 16-18 (King James Version). "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." Just before us you will have to make this decision. Your financial security will be gone overnight. One day you will be secure and the next day you will be asked to sign and receive a mark in order to get your money. If you think your bank would not do this to you, you're wrong. Money has a way of saying all the right words. Your bank will not have a choice but to comply. If you think your bank would never do anything to hurt you, just try stepping out of line now and see what happens.
Jesus does not want you to be caught unaware of what is about to happen. That's why He always warns his people in advance of these things. Jesus wants to save you. He will do anything so you will choose Him. You mean more to Him than you know. He is begging for you to choose Him instead of the ways of man which are influenced by Satan.
When your money that God has given you is, or shall we say stolen from you, you must be prepared to trust totally on Jesus and his leading. If you are not prepared to do that, you will feel backed into a corner with no choice but to comply and receive the mark spoken of in Rev. 13: 16-17. Friends, do not be dismayed at this event because Jesus is coming very soon. This event is the first; and the rest of plagues and so forth will happen very rapidly and then Jesus will come. This is the way that people will be forced to make a decision of who they will follow. There will be no maybe decisions. It will be either a yes or no vote on your part.
Picture if you will, a set of dominoes all standing on end in a row or some sort of a design. What happens when this process is started? It doesn't take long before the whole show is over. Can you say, Amen! Praise God; we are about to go home.
Jesus never leaves His people without a way out or a plan. Now is the time to unite. Strengthen one another and band together. Many people have more than enough money to last up to this time. Those of you that have it need to find someone who does not. Take a personal interest in those that need help. You may be responsible for them being in the kingdom. That would make you happy, wouldn't it? You should find someone who is in debt and help them. Perhaps it's a son or a daughter or a relative. Maybe even a friend or someone in your church. Someone that you can trust! You should work out an honest deal with them. Both of you will be blessed as a result. Soon money will be of no value anyway and the more people that you can bring into the kingdom, the happier for all. You yourself will be blessed. There are many texts in the Bible that talks about money. It would be well to get a topical concordance and do a study to see just what all the Bible has to say. f you do this study with, the help of Jesus, he will lead you to make right decisions.
Let's turn over to Rev. 14: 9-11 (King James Version): "9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
So you see, friends, this is serious. Anyone who feels backed into a corner and makes this decision to go on and get marked will be lost. This is why we need to bond together and unite so everyone will be drawn closer to Christ so faith can be strengthened. Let's turn back to Matt. 25: 1-13 (King James Version): 1 "Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps." Let's stop here for a moment. Verse 5 says they all slumbered and slept. Is this what we are doing at the present time? Friends, we need to be building faith and not sleeping. I pray that we don't sleep too long.
Notice as we continue with verse 6 "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." Jesus in his mercy and his love for you is still giving you another warning of what's about to happen if you will listen. Verse 7, “Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.” Notice that they all heard the warning. The problem starts in verse 8, "And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out." I believe that oil stands for your faith in Jesus Christ.
Now is the serious question. Do you have enough oil or faith to ride out the times ahead? It's a hard question, isn't it! Do you have enough faith to depend totally on Jesus to take care of you? Remember you won't have the mark. You can't buy or sell. That means you depend on Jesus for a place to stay, food to eat, clothes to wear, and so on and so forth. Do you get the picture? You will have to depend totally on Jesus for everything. You say, will He actually do that for me? Friends, I am telling you that Jesus will take care of you. However, remember that my oil will not work for you. You must understand that. Let's look at verse 9, "But the wise answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves." Friends, now is the time to build your faith. You say how can I do that? Again I will tell you; try Jesus and see for yourself. You must do that. It's the only way. Prayer is a powerful tool that you will always have. The name of Jesus is powerful in itself.
Perhaps you may find ideas for your faith building program from something I do. I keep a prayer journal. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. I do not record every prayer. I write down a special prayer, maybe once a week or so. I write these prayers in letter form to Jesus. They may be prayers of thanks, or I may ask Him for something special. In every case as surely as I am writing this He has answered every one. When I recognize the answer I write that down as well.
Try this and see for yourself. Remember, my oil cannot be transferred to your lamp. You must have a supply of oil or faith for yourself. The only way you can get it is from Jesus Christ. He says he will give freely. I challenge you to try Jesus and see.
When you start a prayer journal you will be amazed at what will happen. There will be times when all you will be able to say is praise God; I know he loves me. Amen. It's a great feeling. Another thing about my prayer journal: I keep it on the headboard on my bed and that's where it's convenient for me. If I do get depressed and down I read a few prayers and answers. That's all it takes to remind me that heavenly beings are right there watching me and I feel peace.
Let's pray. "Lord Jesus, sometimes we feel that we do not have a very strong faith. Lead each of us in such a way that our faith can grow and be strong. Help us to make right decisions. We want to be saved. Lord Jesus, we place ourselves in your care. Lead us in what you want us to do. You know each one of us by name and you even know how many hairs we have and how many fall. I know that you watch over us in ways that we don't understand. Thank you for being so kind to us even when we do not deserve it. We place our lives in your hands. Amen."
Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in his wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim. In the light of his glory and grace!
Vision #8: September 22, 1999
Shortly after the mark is received and enforced by law, the seven last plagues will start. The first plague was shown to me. As bumps arose from under the skin and burst through, I gasped in horror at what I saw. There was torn flesh hanging and oozing from these open sores. I was amazed at the numerous amounts of sores on their bodies.
When this plague strikes, I was shown the people who went ahead and received the mark because they did not heed God’s warning were the very worst to persecute those who trusted Jesus. I was told that I would be surprised at who the worst persecutors would be, but to stand firm (I was not told names). The events associated with this mark would be a severe test and that many will not stand on Jesus Christ’s side.
Jesus has promised that He will take care of His people at this time. Amen. I pray for a strong enough faith to fully trust Jesus. I know that we must leave everything and trust Him completely. What little I have been shown of Heaven will be worth it whatever the cost. Life here is nothing compared to eternity. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. KJV Matthew 24:21. See also Daniel 12:1, Psalms 50:l5
Vision #9: October 9, 1999
Tree Over River
I was standing looking at a tree. From the light I knew that I was in heaven. As I stared at this tree I noticed that it was by a river. As I continued looking I noticed that this tree grew up over the river and that there was a trunk on the other side. The tree actually looked like it had a trunk on both sides of the river and grew together as one tree. This tree was in a large open space and no other trees were near. I could see other trees a ways off but cannot give an example of how far. The river was very peaceful and smooth. It was right up to ground level. By that I mean it did not have steep banks on the sides or anything like that. I think there was a slight step down to the water but not much. The grass was very nice and right up to the edge of the water. It was not tall. It looked like a super green lawn. The grass looked so nice.
As I stood there looking at this tree I thought I would reach out and touch it. As soon as this thought came to mind to touch it, a voice said, "Not yet." I felt immediately disappointed and hung my head because I knew that I would have to return to Norton, Kansas. I am glad that I got to see this tree and the area next to it even though I had to leave.
When I raised my head back up I saw an angel walking away from me on my right. The angel just walked right across the water like the usual thing. The angel turned his head and looked at me as he was walking away. The eyes were glowing red or as coals of fire. How I wish I could describe the eyes better. I also noticed that this angel seemed weary for some reason. Then I was back here. I wondered what all this meant. I am sure that I will be told later. Something I find interesting about what I have seen and heard is how close the angels seem to indicate Jesus’ coming is. Such as the statement "Not Yet"; this to me indicated that it won’t be long or very soon.
Vision #10: November 10, 1999
In the early morning of November 10, 1999, I was given a dream that has prompted me to do a lot of studying concerning the testing that all of God’s people will go through just before Jesus comes. I was puzzled and upset with some of the things that I was told. After reading Revelation 13:16-18 and the book entitled "End Time Events" by Mrs. E.G. White; I have felt that God is reaffirming a strong warning that was given a long time ago. Jesus is not willing that any should be lost. I saw this back on May 22, 1999 when Jesus was crying and sobbing for people to choose Him.
I do not know what all the tests will be. All will be tested and that only heaven knows what each of us can take.
I do know that there will be a mark placed on people so they cannot buy or sell unless they have the mark. I was shown this very plainly. God’s people must not accept this mark. This will be a severe test and many will not pass. I was shown that peer pressure from the people who received this mark would be very strong on those who would not. False Christians would be the worst to persecute the few whom would not accept the mark and that’s what upsets me. It was hard to understand.
I was also shown that many will choose Jesus during this shaking time and be saved. God has a people whom at this time we know nothing about who will come to Him during this time.
What really shocked me is that I was told that there are people already receiving this mark. All I can say is beware. I thank God and praise Him for alerting us to this. Friends, this is why I say the end is closer than you think. I know that in order to pass this test, each one individually will have to trust totally on Jesus Christ. Steve Tanner
People Praying #11
My family and I were harvesting wheat on the late afternoon of June 26, 2000. Two of my sons were driving the combines and I was waiting for my truck to be loaded full of wheat. It was a cool and comfortable evening and the truck would not be full for awhile, so I decided to climb into the sleeper of my truck and take a nap. As I lay in the sleeper I decided to pray individually for prayer requests that I had received earlier. After prayer, I instantly saw rays of heavenly light as high as I could look shining on people who were praying. Some were kneeling, some were standing, and some were on the job. All of those praying were surrounded with a beam of heavenly light (Heavenly light is a very white light, but it is a comfortable light). I was amazed at what I saw and watched intently until this scene disappeared. I was then told (by conscience speaking) that all who call on the name of Jesus and pray are surrounded by this heavenly light. Also I was told that Satan tries to make us feel lonely and that our prayers are not heard, so we will forget about praying and thus a blessing is lost that Jesus wants to give us. Satan and his helpers are also able to see Godâ€™s presence around those who pray. Thatâ€™s why they fall back because Jesus overpowers them.
Heaven hears silent prayers in our minds wherever we may be or whatever we are doing.
What I had seen and what I was told moved me. It impressed me at how Jesus longs to hear our prayers.
Thank you Lord Jesus for strengthening my faith with this scene. Praise your Holy name-Jesus.
..............................................Building That Fell.#12.........................
I was standing and observing a building.As I stood and watched, I noticed people coming and going and doing tasks. ( I do not know what they were doing but they all seemed very busy )
This building had a tall A frame roof with sidewalls that seemed to be around 8 ft. tall or so.
Suddenly the building fell with no warning at all and a great cloud of dust filled the scene. When the dust cleared......I saw no one and I was walking up on the roof which was still intact and now at ground level. I was walking up at an angle to the opposite peak when here came a little blue piece of cloth flitting down and landed near me. I picked up that little piece of cloth and looked at it and then turned it over and looked at the other side and saw nothing special about it so I threw it down and continued on up at the same angle that I was walking. The vision then ceased.
I wondered what all this meant during the next few days and then the vision was presented to me a second time exactly the same way as I saw it the first time. When this happens I know that it contains an important message but at the time I didn't know what it was.
I was troubled by the suddenness that the building collapsed and that no one expected it to fall as they were all busy and seemed not to notice any danger at all. Also I saw no one after it fell and the dust cleared. I was troubled by all this and still am to a certain extent. I have been praying that I will be made to understand this vision.
At the fall harvest time of this year ( 2000 and 6 months after the vision) I was in the combine harvesting Milo and I was thinking about this vision and suddenly I was told about that little piece of blue cloth that came flitting down and that I had looked at and then threw it back down was very important. I was told that it represented a remnant. Then the vision became a little more clear.
Could it mean that there will not be any thing unusual noticed about the remnant people of God?
I am still not really sure what all this means. Could it mean that the church will nearly fall and that only a remnant will remain ? Could it mean that God is trying to warn his beloved people? I am still praying for a total understanding of this vision. I know that I will understand in Gods time.

This was presented to me when I was not in a position to write it down and lasted for over 1 hour. When I got the chance to write it down I could not remember all of what I was told. This was written as I remembered it.
Wedding Band - #13
For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16,17.
On May 18, 1999 at around 7 a.m. I received a conscience message on the problem that many people and churches are facing on the wedding band.
All people are at different levels in their faith, trust, and religious experience. I was told that to force them to a higher level is sin. That makes us no better than the Jewish leaders of Jesusâ€™ day. We should extend warm hands of fellowship and get them involved in church activities where they can be used. We should not put them in positions where a person of high experience is needed. Everyone needs to feel needed and appreciated. I was shown that Satan is the one who causes a stir over this. We should no attack people of a lesser experience like a swarm of deadly killer bees. They will leave and never return. Then Satan has won. Satan knows that people are especially hurt when they are picked on about the way they look and dress. It may take some of us a lifetime to get to a proper faith relationship with Jesus.
It is our job to demonstrate Jesusâ€™ love for them and of his wonderful forgiveness and to get them to choose to serve him. It is the Holy Spiritâ€™s job to do all the other things Jesus wants them to do. Jesus is a leader, not a get behind and drive with an electric cattle prod. Our job is to get them to focus on Jesus.
Praise God for his wonderful grace. Amen.

Godâ€™s Love for His People - #14
I was given a dream dealing once again with how much Jesus loves His people on December 30 and 31, 1999.
This was on Lot being asked to leave Sodom before its destruction. Lot was a God fearing man. The rest of his family really didnâ€™t seem to care too much about God because they enjoyed the city life of Sodom. God protected Lotâ€™s family even though they didnâ€™t seem to take God seriously in their daily lives. Lot was appreciative of Godâ€™s protection.
I was impressed how the angels practically dragged Lot's family from the city, but then there had to be a test (Seems like there is always a test). One of the angels said, "Go to the mountains and donâ€™t stop, and donâ€™t look back. Go as fast as you can because we are going to destroy this city." Lot begged to go to a small town near by instead, and the angels agreed to this.
Lot obeyed and took off and as they were all leaving, Lotâ€™s wife started being a pain and finally started lagging behind. Remember they were told not to stop and not to look back and to hurry.
I saw that Lot and his daughters were ahead of Lotâ€™s wife. It looked like her mouth was going faster than her feet. Suddenly there was a crash, and fire seemed to come from everywhere. Lotâ€™s wife turned to look, as she was behind, lingering by herself.
Letâ€™s notice the lesson here. Unity brings strength and increases faith. Lot went on into town, but his wife never showed up. Lot wondered what happened to her but he dared not go looking for her. God was going to destroy the city where Lotâ€™s family went, but he spared it because of Lot. Praise God for His mercy.
After everything was over Lot went looking for his wife because he loved her in spite of herself. She was found frozen in the very act of disobedience. It was explained to me that this was done so that all would know that God was just. If she was just lying dead, Lot would never have known what really happened and then he would have had doubts about God. He may have thought that the walk was too severe and the poor woman had a heart attack. Then Lot and the rest of the family would have blamed God (I felt a lesson here). When Lot saw how complete the destruction was he did go on to the mountains as he was first asked to do.
To me this dream was another part in how much God loves His people and the lengths He will go to save them and protect them.

Time of Troubleâ€¦Possessions Taken #15
This dream really hit home and was about me.
Several vans of people came to my home and they all parked in a row in front of the house on the circle drive. Times had been hard and nobody had any money and no food because of all the terrible events that were taking place.
People were going around in groups looking for anything they could get a hold of.
I was outside and they paid no attention to me whatsoever. A child from one of the vans took my dog and placed him in the van. I went to the van and pulled my dog out. Soon people were carrying my possessions out of the house and loading it into the vans. I tried desperately to save my possessions. It was of no use. There were too many people. I just sat down and watched as they carried out and loaded what they wanted. I watched as they loaded all of my best and prize possessions. It seemed as though everything that I really liked, they took. Finally, when there was nothing more to take, someone came up to me and asked if I had any cash. My response was, "I donâ€™t have any either." I was in deep despair when a voice said, "There shall be a time of trouble such as never was since the beginning of time."
Note: There were at least 4-5 vanloads of people. They did not show any remorse at all. They were just plundering. My family and I were not harmed. They took my possessions like I wasnâ€™t even in their presence.
Man Panning Gold _ #16
A scene was shown of a man panning gold in a mountain stream. It seemed I was about 20 feet from where he was kneeling on one knee and intently working with swirling his pan. After a few moments he turned his head and looked at me. He had large brown eyes that looked piercingly at me momentarily and then resumed what he was doing. He had a large brown flat brimmed hat. The part that goes around the head was round with a flat top.It had a black band around it.My focus was fixed on him and I did not notice any other surroundings. As I watched him, soon he picked something out of the pan and was looking it over carefully. It was a large nugget.He became excited and laid the pan down.I looked in the pan and there were other small nuggets in there but he showed no interest in them. Soon he stood up and walked away leaving the pan there. This scene then faded..
I was awakened pondering this scene. I felt I should write it down so I went into the office with my prayer journal and started writing. I wondered what all this meant. As I finished writing the scene....a voice said " The large nugget represents Mrs. White ".
Following are some comments on this scene taken from my prayer journal.
God still speaks to people today but are not listened to. These are the smaller nuggets. A blessing is therefore lost. The bible says men will run to and fro seeking Gods word and will not find it. Why ? Could it be that all the Bibles are gone? No. Could it be that all the pastors are gone ? No.
Please do not misunderstand that anything is against Mrs. White here. I feel this scene is telling us to keep our eyes open and to test all things.All credit belongs to God. Early on when the first scenes were given,I pondered them and was not going to tell a soul until one morning a terrible feeling came over me to share.I argued out loud,refusing. I can not describe the terrible feelings that took place and the tears that were shed. When I decided to share, a feeling of tremendous peace came over me. I will share..regardless of the results.
Humbly, Steve Grand Home Demolished #17
At this time,I do not know the meaning of this dream as nothing was said. This is what I saw..
Donna and I were in a mountain home along with other people. I don't know the reason we were there. This home was very beautiful at the base of a high cliff mountain and was built so the beauty of the place could be viewed with great ease. This was a stone built home. At least the walls looked like stone. The roof was of a four corner style with wood shingles. There were also pine trees around and also here and there growing on the steep slope of the mountain. The main room inside this home had a glass roof so while you were reclining and relaxing you could see up to and the top of this steep slope. The main door in to the home faced away from the slope on to a level place so the yard area was level for some distance. This is the scene..
I remember walking around in this house and admiring how nice it was and then sitting down in a reclining chair and looking up at the top of the mountain. As I sat there admiring the clouds coming over the top of the mountain my attention seemed to be focused intently on them and how neat it looked. Soon it was as though the wind had picked up debris of rocks and other things and was hurling them over the cliff toward us..I was alarmed and yelled to get out of the house and run. I didn't try to get the other peoples attention other than yelling to leave and ran out the door. I ran about a 1,000 yards before looking back. I saw Donna coming along with a couple others following. At this time the house was totally demolished when all the debris hit it. We watched until the debris quit falling and then went back and were digging through the ruble to find other people. Then the dream ended. I was awakened and then came into the office to write this down in my prayer journal. The time was 3:49 am. This was on 6-12-04 ( a Sabbath morning ).
Note...Later I was told this dream meant to watch and be ready...
Do not live in city #18
In the early hours of this morning...12 - 15 - 02 A dream that lasted for sometime...reaffirming some things given before....
I saw a large city some distance away. In the further back ground there was lots of smoke..I saw people running as fast as they could go across country on foot to get away..I was standing and seemed to be focused on this scene.People came running past me on both sides with looks of terror on there faces like I was just a post they were going around. I was told right then what this meant...
"Get away from the large cities...There will be much confusion and total chaos..When even anywhere near a city.....Inhabit structures of sound simplicity.. Even these will be shaken...that's the reason for simplicity....
Others can not be helped if you are a victim yourself..."
These are notes taken directly from my prayer journal of making notes on this dream... I am frustrated as I know not when or where this will happen...I was hoping and praying more light would be given on this...So far..none. I feel these councils were also given a long time ago and not heeded..God in his mercy gave a strong reminder this morning.
Also this morning ...a strong gut feeling of even a more severe drought this next summer. I hope this is wrong but even though I am a farmer feel it is right based on past experience with the way this was given last fall for this year...
( note..This was right..We are in a bad drought..I thank God for His leading in what to do )
May God lead each of you in prayerful searching as to what you should do.. I would like to be able to tell you more...but at this time ...there is no further info to pass on..
Steve Note..I encourage all to study prayerfully Revelation 18. Also all should look for rural places to live away from the large cities. Ask God to lead in this process..I know He will help all who want to follow what He asks.
Righteousness by Faith- or Works #19
In Mat. 19: 16 - 24 we are told about a rich man that came to Jesus and asked " What good thing must I do to have eternal life?" Jesus said to keep the commandments. The man asks which...as if to ask if there was any special one. Jesus then proceeds to name off a few of them and the man says " I have kept all these from my youth but I feel like I can do more " What lack I yet?" Jesus said " If you want to be perfect...sell what you have, give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven:and come follow me. The story goes on to say the man went away as he had great possessions. The next 2 verses are words of Jesus to his deciples" Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
Of course we must ask ..Why.? Did this man come to Jesus for a pat on the back? He had done the works of keeping the law. It wasn't enough according to Jesus. He was asked to leave everything he had and come trust Jesus. " come follow me" It is hard for a person that has plenty of money to learn to depend on God for things as when there is a problem....all that is needed is a personal check and not a miracle.
My parents taught that I had to do right ( what they said )or" I " would not go to heaven. I remember telling my small children the same thing trying to scare them into doing what " I " wanted them to do. I remember one of the boys going to tell his brother that dad said to do this or you won't go to heaven. I can see it from memory as if he were doing it now and he was so serious. Are we as a church doing this same thing?
There was also a time in my life that I thought that just because I kept the Sabbath ...I was home free. I had it made. Since then...from study of God's word,I have learned that salvation is a free gift. All I have to do is accept it. The price has been paid. One of my favorite texts John 3 : 14 - 18 . " And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,even so must the son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.He that believeth on him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God". Many times we only tell part of the story by only repeating John 3:16. I like the whole thing much better. Also I like Acts 16:31. Believe on the Lord Jesus and thou shalt be saved.
When Jesus was dying on the cross ( Luke 23:42 ) the thief simply asked to be remembered and Jesus responds ( verse 43 ) that this thief would be with him in paradise.
There is evidence here that Jesus is a God of great love and that he wants us to depend on him...that is to say He wants us to trust him to take care of us and that all this is a gift. I believe there are some earthly benefits to keeping Gods law. The thief on the cross would probably agree, and would have lived a longer life if he had not been a thief. You see ....Gods law is on trial here on this earth as Satan said it could not be kept. I think arbitrary was the word he used. The dictionary says - arbitrary- based on impulse or whim and also dictatorial. Jesus has proved that he is a God of love and that he is not dictatorial or impulsive. He gave us many examples while he was here and I am glad he is in charge of the judgement. He is my attorney and my judge. He is also able to influence what to do here and now if I will listen...so how does this judging thing work.? You see...I have the power of choice ..To chose Christ Jesus....Or just go along with the world that follows Satan.
Jesus has given much evidence in the Bible so that a choice can be made. All we have to do is study the evidence. It does not stop there. He works to give us evidence in our own lives. I think of it as a campaign from some one who desperately wants my vote. My vote is very valuable. Your vote is very valuable. The other person in this campaign is Satan who also wants yours and my vote..Satan puts things before us from the world to see if we will forget and ignore the gifts Jesus promises and gives.... What will the choice be?

Time For Jesus #20
I was shown a scene that surprised me. In this scene were a long row of objects that were a gray concrete color. At the beginning of the row was a cross of brilliant white. As I watched the gray objects I realized that they were things that are very important to their owners to the extent of crowding out time for Jesus. The objects are anything that cuts into our time we should be spending with Christ. There was a car, boat, garden, home, TV, computer, and many things too numerous to mention here. I was very surprised at jobs and work-related things. I was unaware that jobs could be loved so much that they could become and idol. Letting work occupy our minds to the extent that it crowds out quality time to be spent with the Savior was the point.
Sports related items were also there. I myself am guilty of spending lots of time with farm related things although most of the time is quiet.
I do not feel that I can comment on this, as everyone's life is different. Jesus is the only one qualified to be the judge of our lives because He is the one who paid the price and will bear the marks throughout eternity so the saved ones will be reminded of what he did for a lost world. The scars left from the thorns and the terrible hellish strikings in the face have left their marks that will always be present as well as pierced hands and feet. We are also told in scripture of a scar in his side and that he was whipped without mercy. I am sure that if his back were shown, scars would be there as well.
Why should time be spent with Jesus? I enjoy spending time with him because He is my best friend and for what he does for me every day. I can talk to him freely. I know Jesus likes to hear everything even though he already knows. He likes to hear me admit what he does for me and give him the credit. I wouldn't want to think of not having Him as my friend as I have learned to lean heavily on Him and He doesn't seem to mind. Jesus is a friend that doesn't need to be reminded of his word. He is the one who reminds me of his promises. All I do is accept them.
Thank you Lord Jesus for this scene. I chose you to be in charge of my life. I pray that I am always willing to do your will and follow you. Amen

Angel Music - #21
Here is the experience of hearing Angel music..
I was sitting at my desk doing paper work in the mechanic shop when I worked as a mechanic for a drywall company in GrandIsland, Ne. I was busy filling out maintenance forms completely and filling them away. There was no radio playing and no sound equipment in the building...All was very quiet as no one was around needing anything. As I sat at the desk ..suddenly I heard the most beautiful harmony I have ever heard coming from up high on my left. It was not real loud but it was enough to grab my attention and make me look up in that direction to see. The music was a soprano harmony that I had never heard before. It lasted approximately 5 seconds. I have never forgotten that sound to this day. When I hear people singing to this day and hear beautiful harmony that comes near to this .....it bring tears to my eyes as it is so reverent and beautiful and glorious. If I am in a group such as in a congregation at a church and hear this sound....I must stop and listen and usually dry my eyes..Sacred heavenly music is so beautiful....I long to be there. We are told that eyes have not seen nor ears have not heard what Jesus has planned for those that love him..It's true as at times He has shared glimpses with me and I try in human words to share them to who will listen. It is so easy to get bogged down with the cares of this world that we take our eyes off the most important things..I pray that we all keep our focus on Jesus and Heavenly things.
Answered Prayer to the Lost Key #22
It was harvest time in the fall of 2000. It had been an extremely dry year and tension was running high for crop yields were very low and we certainly didnâ€™t need any expensive repairs to add to the situation. I had finished my crop harvest and had decided to help my son finish harvesting his corn crop.
It was evening when we got our two trucks moved to his field. We had planned to start the next day. My son picked a small area of corn on the end of the field where the trucks could be parked safely off the road for the night. I decided to remove the keys from both trucks and take them home. Both sets of keys were placed on the dash of our farm pickup where they would be safe and available for the next day.
When I returned the next day I gathered all the keys, the cell phone, my water jug, and a pair of gloves, and walked to the fist truck to place its keys in the ignition. I opened my hand for the key of that truck, but it was not there. This puzzled me, as I was sure I had brought it with me. I went on to the next truck and placed its key in the ignition and then to the combine with the water jug. I then went back to the pickup to make sure I had taken the key that was missing. It was not there. I retraced my steps looking downward and saw nothing but the deep trash of corn shucks and leaves covering the ground. Then a feeling of hopelessness set in, as I knew that it could never be found in the corn trash cover. I walked back to the pickup again all the time feeling hopelessness of finding that key. As I stood beside the pickup I decided to pray. "Lord Jesus, You know I need that key. Please help me find it. Amen." Again I started retracing my steps with a feeling of stupidity and carelessness to drop a key when the ground was so deep with trash. As I trudged slowly toward the truck there was no sign of the key. I wondered what I was going to do. I finally got to the driverâ€™s door and just stood there looking down. There it was lying on a corn shuck. Why hadnâ€™t I seen it the other times?
Prayer saved the day! Thank you Jesus for caring!

Rain - #23
This miracle took place on 8- 21-00
It had not rained but little all summer and the crops looked terrible. I felt that I needed to do something about watering the cane field which would be baled and used for cattle feed during the winter. I came up with a plan for hauling water to the field with our truck. I could haul 6000 gallons of water at a time in the empty fertilizer tanks that I had and pump the water with the 5 horse pump for pumping fertilizer. I set about making a small sprinkler system that would water a 150 ft. area by 50 ft. This seemed to work well and I felt that I had really done something. As time went on I would haul water and haul water. Finally after about a week I realized that I was getting nowhere as I had a long way to go and that I could never keep up with the demand for water fast enough, as where I had started was already getting dry and the temperatures every day were over 100. I talked with a man that drills irrigation wells and he told me that to water 1 acre of land with 1 inch of water that it would take 27,000 gals of water and he thought that I was nuts. I could see improvement where I had watered but then a feeling of total helplessness came over me and I could see that what I was trying to do was impossible.
The next evening I was standing in the field while the water was being pumped off and I was faced with the fact that I was trying something impossible and I prayed. This is the prayer as near as I can remember: "Dear Lord Jesus... take a look at this field..just look at it and I turned around in a circle and pointed at it. Lord Jesus, You can see that I need a miracle here. I have done everything in my power to haul water here and have failed. I know that you could water this whole field in just minutes. I need a miracle and I need one now ." I raised my hand toward Heaven and asked that this field be watered with 1 inch of rain in Jesus' Holy name. Amen.
After the rest of the water was pumped off I got in the truck and went home and as it was near 10 PM went to bed. During the night or near morning I awoke to thunder and as I listened it got louder. I heard it start to rain but it only rained a few sprinkles. I began to get upset and went back to sleep. In the morning I got up and went to check the electronic rain gauge in my office. 4 hundredths. I was upset. Didn't God care? Couldn't he see that we needed rain desperately on this field? Would we have to sell the cattle? These were all questions that went through my mind and I was angry and very depressed. I spent all morning till about 9:00 am thinking about what we would have to do in order to survive. Then I felt impressed to get in my pickup and take a drive over to the cane field. I drove west 1 mile to make the turn on the road north. ( all dry and dusty ) As I turned north to get to the field that was still a half mile away ( still dry and dusty ) I was noticing that It had sprinkled more that way. As I neared the field it started to get muddy and the pickup started sliding around as this was only a dirt road. My eyes welled up with tears as I felt like an idiot for the anger that I went through only hours and moments before. I could see that water had ran down the road. I sent a quick prayer thanking Jesus for taking care of the request the evening before and also to forgive me for the way I had felt. As I drove on north to another field that I farm near by and was sliding in mud all the way I could see water standing in a few places in terraces that had been plowed. I was really impressed and thankful as it was truly a miracle. I do not know if he sent the 1 inch that was asked for but he did send some much needed rain.
Here is an article that was sent to me some time ago..You may find it to be of intrest as it seems to go along with the dreams that started back in april of 99. At first when I told of this..no one seemed to believe this was possible. Now, attitudes seem to be changing as people realize this is very possible..I have been warned in dreams that this is really close.I have tried to convey that message to all who will listen..This has been in my file for some time. I do not know who wrote it. I will pass it on as It came to me..
YOUR PAPERS, PLEASE ... Paying for drinks with wave of the hand Club-goers in Spain get implanted chips for ID, payment purposes
Posted: April 14, 2004 5:00 p.m. Eastern
By Sherrie Gossett © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com
Being recognized has never been easier for VIP patrons of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, Spain.
Like a scene out of a science-fiction movie, all it takes is a syringe-injected microchip implant for the beautiful men and women of the nightclub scene to breeze past a "reader" that recognizes their identity, credit balance and even automatically opens doors to exclusive areas of the club for them.
They can buy drinks and food with a wave of their hand and don't need to worry about losing a credit card or wallet.
"By simply passing by our reader, the Baja Beach Club will know who you are and what your credit balance is," Conrad K. Chase explains. Chase is director of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona.
"From the moment of their implantation they will also have free entry and access to the VIP area," he said.
In the popular club, which boasts a dance floor that can accommodate 3,000, streamlined services and convenience matter to Chase's VIP customers.
Baja Beach Clubs International is the first firm to employ the "VeriPay System," developed by Applied Digital's VeriChip Corporation and announced at an international conference in Paris last year. The company touts this application of the chip implant as an advance over credit cards and smart cards, which, absent biometrics and appropriate safeguard technologies, are subject to theft resulting in identity fraud.
Palm Beach-based Applied Digital Solutions (NASDAQ:ADSXD) unveiled the original VeriChip immediately after the 9-11 tragedy. Similar to pet identification chips, the VeriChip is a syringe-injectable radio frequency identification microchip that can be read from a few feet away by either a hand-held scanner or by the implantee walking through a "portal" scanner. Information can be wirelessly written to the chip, which contains a unique 10-digit identification number.
Media seized on the novelty factor of the chip implant, driving it to worldwide headlines in 2001.
Last year, Art Kranzley, senior vice president at MasterCard, speculated on possible future electronic payment media: "We're certainly looking at designs like key fobs. It could be in a pen or a pair of earrings. Ultimately, it could be embedded in anything â€“ someday, maybe even under the skin."
Chase calls the chip implant the wave of the future.
The nightclub director has been implanted along with stars from the Spanish version of the TV show "Big Brother."
"I know many people who want to be implanted," he said. "Actually, almost everybody has piercings, tattoos or silicone."
Will the implant only be of use at the Baja?
"The objective of this technology is to bring an ID system to a global level that will destroy the need to carry ID documents and credit cards," Chase said.
During a recent American radio interview, Chase said the CEO of VeriChip, Dr. Keith Bolton, had told him that the company's goal was to market the VeriChip as a global implantable identification system.
With only 900 people implanted worldwide, though, the global mandate isn't exactly around the corner, and current applications are extremely limited.
Chase added, "The VeriChip that we implant at Baja will not only be for the Baja, but is also useful for whatever other enterprise that makes use of this technology."
He also alluded to plans for FN Herstal, which manufactures Browning and Smith and Wesson firearms, to develop an implant-firearm system that would make a firearm functional only to the individual implanted with its corresponding microchip. A scanner in the gun would be designed to recognize the owner.
Chase's mention of the FN Herstal-Verichip partnership came a full week before it's formal announcement by Applied Digital yesterday.
Chase believes all gun owners should be required to have a microchip implanted in their hand to be able to own a gun. While yesterday's Associated Press story on the prototype is primarily from the angle of police usage, WND reported two years ago that from the he outset of the company's acquisition of its "Digital Angel" implant patent â€“ said to be GPS trackable â€“ Applied touted the implant as a potential universal method of gun control.
Chase also claimed that the VeriChip company had told him that the Italian government was preparing to implant government workers.
"We are the only company today offering human implantable ID technology," said Scott R. Silverman, chairman and chief executive officer of Applied Digital Solutions. "We believe the market opportunity for this technology is substantial, and high-profile successes such as in Spain will serve as catalysts for broader adoption."
Since 1999, the Applied Digital Solutions has boasted that it also has a GPS-trackable chip in the works, but four years later the device has yet to come to market. Some mechanical engineers contend such a device requires substantial antenna length and that creating a self-contained unit in the space of a tiny chip is virtually impossible. In addition, questions of accuracy of new GPS consumer items have been raised by the press. A previous Wall Street Journal "road test" of different manufacturers' GPS watches and devices for children had some kids tracked to the Sahara Desert, rather than New York City where they were.
Despite the kinks that may need to be worked out, security of loved ones and personal property remains one of the chief marketing focuses of personal GPS devices and RFID chip firms.
Meanwhile, in Barcelona the VeriChip is gaining a following of enthusiastic "early adopters."
"Everyone embraced the electronic payment application," Chase said. "My customers like the fact that they do not have to carry a credit card or ID card with them. With the VeriPay system, they no longer have to worry about their credit cards getting lost or stolen."

Young Man Raised To Life -#24
I was attending a funeral.. It was a young person that had died..I didn't know the details..During the service...( it was so mournful ) I got up and walked to the front and wanted to know if I could have a few minutes of the service time..? This was granted..I walked over to the open casket and began to pray out loud..Everyone was quiet..During the prayer I pulled out a small bottle of oil and raised my right hand and said as I anointed the body with the oil ( poured a small amount but not touching the body with my hand )...In the Holy name of the Father, and of the son Jesus Christ and of the Holy Spirit, be made whole with life restored to you _____ ( I was not told the name ) ... As I stepped back..this person sat up to the amazement of the crowd..Things went from sad to joy...I just walked out and left and not a word was spoken to any one..The dream ended there...
I have given this much thought and study of how Jesus healed since this dream...
Later I was told that God will work in a mighty way during the time of trouble and we will see some amazing things. Praise God for his love and direction given for this time.
#25 Personal Encouragement
Donna and I were driving around in our pickup looking for a few people to help move cattle. I do not know why that seemed to be the reason. No cattle were seen in the dream. We had driven around to several places to ask for help.Some were not home. Others had good reasons why they could not help. We then returned to the place where the cattle were. It was a long winding path. The grass was really nice except for worn tire tracks. There were trees and shrubbery along this path with many bends. You could only see a short distance to the next blind curve. As we rounded the first curve,I noticed someone walking in the direction we were going. Stopping beside him I said," Get in the back of the pickup." He got in and we proceeded on. Entering another bend we once again approached a person along this trail. I also asked him to get into the back of the pickup. The next curve had several people. This went on until the back of the pickup was full of people. We seemed to know some of these people at the time( I do not remember now ). I was very excited to have all this help and asked Donna to prepare a meal in appreciation. As we rounded another curve a large number of people filled the path. I stopped, got out and walked toward them in amazement. Soon a person stepped out of this crowd to meet me.."It was Jesus!"..All was forgotten as I knelt and bowed to the ground before Him. Jesus put his hand on my shoulder. In His loving voice he said " RISE ". I stood to my feet and looked into his eyes. Those eyes of love! As He waved his arm back toward the large crowd of people Jesus said, " ALL THESE ARE HERE BECAUSE YOU WERE WILLING TO SHARE THE MESSAGE I GAVE YOU." I remember my eyes filling with tears. The dream then ended. I felt very humbled by this dream.
Article: April 14, 2004 Microchip Implant
Here is an article that was sent to me some time ago. You may find it to be of interest as it seems to go along with the dreams that started back in April of 1999. At first when I told of this...no one seemed to believe this was possible. Now, attitudes seem to be changing as people realize this is very possible. I have been warned in dreams that this is really close. I have tried to convey that message to all who will listen. This has been in my file for some time. I do not know who wrote it. I will pass it on as It came to me. Steve Tanner
YOUR PAPERS, PLEASE ... Paying for drinks with wave of the hand Club-goers in Spain get implanted chips for ID, payment purposes ________________________________________ Posted: April 14, 2004 5:00 p.m. Eastern By Sherrie Gossett © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com Being recognized has never been easier for VIP patrons of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, Spain. Like a scene out of a science-fiction movie, all it takes is a syringe-injected microchip implant for the beautiful men and women of the nightclub scene to breeze past a "reader" that recognizes their identity, credit balance and even automatically opens doors to exclusive areas of the club for them. They can buy drinks and food with a wave of their hand and don't need to worry about losing a credit card or wallet. "By simply passing by our reader, the Baja Beach Club will know who you are and what your credit balance is," Conrad K. Chase explains. Chase is director of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona. "From the moment of their implantation they will also have free entry and access to the VIP area," he said. In the popular club, which boasts a dance floor that can accommodate 3,000, streamlined services and convenience matter to Chase's VIP customers. Baja Beach Clubs International is the first firm to employ the "VeriPay System," developed by Applied Digital's VeriChip Corporation and announced at an international conference in Paris last year. The company touts this application of the chip implant as an advance over credit cards and smart cards, which, absent biometrics and appropriate safeguard technologies, are subject to theft resulting in identity fraud. Palm Beach-based Applied Digital Solutions (NASDAQ:ADSXD) unveiled the original VeriChip immediately after the 9-11 tragedy. Similar to pet identification chips, the VeriChip is a syringe-injectable radio frequency identification microchip that can be read from a few feet away by either a hand-held scanner or by the implantee walking through a "portal" scanner. Information can be wirelessly written to the chip, which contains a unique 10-digit identification number. Media seized on the novelty factor of the chip implant, driving it to worldwide headlines in 2001. Last year, Art Kranzley, senior vice president at MasterCard, speculated on possible future electronic payment media: "We're certainly looking at designs like key fobs. It could be in a pen or a pair of earrings. Ultimately, it could be embedded in anything – someday, maybe even under the skin." Chase calls the chip implant the wave of the future. The nightclub director has been implanted along with stars from the Spanish version of the TV show "Big Brother." "I know many people who want to be implanted," he said. "Actually, almost everybody has piercing, tattoos or silicone." Will the implant only be of use at the Baja? "The objective of this technology is to bring an ID system to a global level that will destroy the need to carry ID documents and credit cards," Chase said.
