After our Wednesday night bible study wrapped up last night, I was shutting things down in the studio and praising God for everything He has been doing in my life and in the ministry He’s given me, when He quietly spoke to me something that truly amazed me. I was thanking Him for the great bible study, the hymns and praise music, all the prayer requests we lifted up to Him, and for the great truths He showed us from His word, when He said to me “these people are your congregation, and you’re their pastor”.
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 1:12-14 (KJB)
The very thought gripped me where I stood, and I stopped and praised Him with tears in my eyes. After being a bible teacher and street preacher for nearly a decade, and after studying the scriptures for nearly 30 years, God has given me the desire of my heart since He saved me, and that is to serve Him with the tools and gifts He’s given me. How well I remember Anna Schenck, one of the original listeners of our King James Radio Bible Studies, we would talk on the phone and she’d call me ‘Pastor G’, and every time I would correct her and say “now Anna, you know I am not a pastor, just someone who believes The Book and loves teaching it to people”. She’d smile and say “yes, Pastor G, OK, you’re right Pastor G.” Up to the day the Lord called her Home and I preached her homegoing service on the radio, she never stopped calling me that.
Last night, the Lord called me that. Amen.
“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 (KJB)
So it is with incredible excitement that we are announcing that starting in 2021, if we’re all still here, we will be opening up the NTEB Studios here in Saint Augustine, Florida, on Tuesday nights for a live, sit-down King James Bible study from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. Lord willing, it will also be streamed live so people outside of our area can participate as well. This, of course, will be in addition to our Monday and Friday Prophecy News Podcasts, and our Wednesday and Sunday Rightly Dividing King James Radio Bible studies.

I had little to no inkling of what the Lord was planning to do with my life in this crazy year of 2020, way back on New Year’s Eve when I surrendered to do Now The End Begins as a full-time ministry, but I will tell you this. It is so much more than I asked for, and at the risk of getting ahead of myself, 2021 may also just be the year we launch the First Annual NTEB National Prophecy Conference. So please keep that in prayer as well! Big things are happening, the engines of Flight #777 are warming up, as we watch an unsaved world preparing to meet Antichrist. How exciting is it that we, the NTEB global family of bible believers, are together on the front lines of the end times, working to get something done for the Lord.
The war is real, the battle hot and the time is short…to the FIGHT!!!
Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church
When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
