You Are Cherished By God

If you are a Bible-defined real Christian you are cherished by God! That fact should make you shouting happy! Cherished is how God views you as his son or daughter!cherished by God As exceptional as that is, God will also take great delight in you, quiet you with his love and sing over you with rejoicing:

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. (Zep 3:17)

Your future in his holy presence, if you remain in Christ, is best described as Paradise! It will be God’s cherished (you) in Paradise with him!  Imagine that. But getting back to being cherished by God, we can only guess at the awesomeness of what that entails, but it is VERY exciting. Here is Biblical support that God’s children are cherished:

See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. (Psa 83:2,3)

Psa. 83:2,3 states that God’s enemies conspire against his people, the ones God cherishes! To further remove all ambiguity about who Psa. 83:3 refers to, please note God’s people now are Christians. (The Christ rejecting Jews are not God’s chosen people anymore.)

God Is NOT Like Us

Remember, though we are cherished by God, God’s ways and thoughts are not like ours (Isa. 55:8,9). He is also a testing God and those tests can be painful (1 Pet.4:12) for those cherished by God! In this life now, the saints will continue to face many hardships and problems, as we follow Jesus. It was like that for all the disciples, even the most faithful like Paul, who shed his blood at least nine times early in his ministry! We remain cherished by God, as we remain a follower of Jesus Christ — one who is running his spiritual race with perseverance. Rejoice that your name is written in the book of life (Lk. 10:20).

I Feel More Positive Towards Mary Than Jesus

[Bible Comment/Question From a Catholic] Well, firstly I will admit that I was a bit puzzled and curious as to why you decided to send me an article about Mary since I have not mentioned anything about her previously. (Did you have some sort of spiritual thoughts that maybe I hold her in high esteem?). I do in fact pray to her for her intercession as well as of course to God and to my Guardian Angel. I’ve never felt it to be a problem before but indeed lately I do seem to be feeling more positive towards Mary than towards Jesus probably because as a woman I feel like she can understand me somehow more.. (it probably isn’t so, I just feel it).catholic mary The passage 1 Cor. 6:9-11 which you mentioned also ties in with the figure of Mary if I’m correct? Do you perceive her as an idol in this context? Thank you in advance,

[Bible Answer] Thank you for your polite response. I’m very glad you shared your heart. There are several important Bible truths I need to mention related to your comments. Here they are:

* We are to pray only to God. I know Catholics have been entrenched in praying to Mary, angels and other Catholic saints, but we were taught wrong. [I am an ex Catholic.] That type of prayer is not Biblical and must stop. To pray to Mary or anyone else is to wrongly assume she/he is all-knowing for she would have to be able to hear multiple people praying to her at the same time. Only God is all-knowing and has the sovereign power to answer prayer, deliver us and save our souls. [Mary is not sovereign, as Pope John Paul II taught.]

* Please be assured that JESUS is more merciful than Mary. In fact, Mary being merciful or helpful to us in our needs doesn’t even fit into the equation because she can’t do anything for us. She is not the mediatrix or dispenser of grace, as Catholicism declares. She is not the sinless Queen of heaven and hope of sinners; neither is she our life, sweetness and hope. As you read and learn the New Testament, precious life-producing truths about JESUS will become apparent.

* JESUS is the focus and the key to eternal life and victory. We also get to Jesus by going directly to him, without first going to Mary. Jesus commanded us to come directly to him (Mt. 11:28-30; John 5:40; 6:37; etc.). It is a sin to disobey and try to go to him some other way, based on those Scriptures.

* Without question, the fabricated Mary of Roman Catholicism is not the Mary portrayed in the Bible. To be more precise, the Mary of Catholicism doesn’t exist. She has been invented and has evolved over the centuries. Now she has become a godless figure and savior to the misinformed. Such is not the Mary taught in the Bible. There is no resemblance between the two. Since Catholicism has exalted their fabricated Mary to being THE WAY TO GOD (Fatima Marian apparition) it is therefore, necessary for our personal salvation to reject that poisonous concept and go to Jesus and trust him 100% for our salvation. Mary has no role in salvation and neither do the sacraments or being a Catholic. A saving faith is a faith in JESUS, which follows and obeys him. It is one which has repented of sins and is serving God. It is a faith which has set one free from his sin addictions and has made one a new creation in Christ.

* YES, Catholicism has made their fabricated sinless Queen of heaven into an idol and they carry her around like the idolaters in the Old Testament did with their false gods:

For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good. (Jer 10:3-5)

Finally, for all those listed in 1 Cor. 6:9,10, the remedy is cited in verse 11, but that vital remedy doesn’t mention Mary. The whole passage says:

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor. 6:9-11, NASB).

Please read this about saving faith very carefully.

A Christian is NOT a Sinner Saved By Grace

As strange as it may sound in our apostate day, according to Scripture, a Christian is NOT a sinner saved by grace! YES, he is saved by grace. YES, he was a sinner, before salvation. However, since the point of becoming a new creation in Christ he is NOW a righteous person and no longer a sinner! [In fact, he is also called terms which show his holy devotion to Christ such as a saint (Rom. 15:26; 16:15; 2 Cor. 1:1; 13:13; Eph. 1:1; etc.).]

What Grace Is NOT

Definition of a Sinner

The definition of a sinner, according to the Bible, is one who is on the road to hell, bound and enslaved by the cords of sin (Rom. 6:)!sinner saved by grace This important difference between the term sinner and the righteous (saints) is easily shown when examining contrasting terms. Luke 15:7 and 1 Pet. 4:18 are clear. Respectively, they read:

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

It is also crystal clear that it is only the righteous who inherit God’s kingdom, not the unrighteous (or sinners):

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9,10, NASB).

But all sinners will be destroyed; the future of the wicked will be cut off.  (Psa 37:38)

To call a blood-bought, blood-redeemed slave of righteousness (Rom. 6:18) and follower of JESUS (Jn. 10:27) a sinner is to distort and smear the holy image of being a Christian, but such a demonic distortion fits perfectly with the heretical doctrine of eternal security! Why? Because eternal security doctrine implies there are Christian adulterers, Christian drunks, Christian thieves, Christian liars, etc. To them the backsliding are still saved while in the vilest of unrepentant sin. That is a violent affront and attack to basic Bible Christian beliefs!

A Christian is Righteous – NOT a Sinner Saved By Grace

Again, a Christian is righteous, and has eternal life and eternal salvation by OBEYING JESUS (Heb. 5:9). He definitely is NOT a sinner saved by grace. In fact, the phrase sinner saved by grace is Biblically impossible in even another way! A sinner can be saved, but is NOT saved while in unrepentant sin.

People tend to retort, we all sin and Jesus was the only sinless one. TRUE, but there are different degrees of sin (1 John 5:16,17)! To say sin is sin, meaning all sins are of the same degree, is also NOT a Christian teaching! There is sin which is NOT sin unto death (1 John 5:16,17)! For a Christian to be in worry and/or not be completely humble and gentle is sin but NOT sin that leads to death as would place him back on the road to hell and make him a sinner again as we read here:

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:19,20, ESV)

To say a Christian is a sinner saved by grace is highly misleading according to the above and should not be used by Christians. Do you know Jesus NOW?

Little Known Facts About God

All through the Bible we can gather important facts about God. facts about GodSome facts about God are obvious and often mentioned, like his love. Other major facts about God are lesser known such as his wrath and anger over sin and his jealousy for our love and commitment to him for our own sake. But among the lesser known facts about God would be how he has dealt with Israel at times when they were not satisfied with his provision. The following is an example:

They Craved Other Food

During the days of Moses, while God was providing for the physical needs of his people, the Israelites fell to a food temptation! [Food temptations are not readily mentioned, but several are: Adam and Eve (Gen. 3), Esau (Heb. 12:16), even the devil tempted Jesus to change stones into bread when he was hungry from fasting (Lk. 4:2-4).] In Moses’ day, a food temptation occurred while God was adequately and miraculously providing food (manna) six days a week for the Israelites. They were not satisfied with the taste of the miracle food and wanted meat to eat, which was very serious in God’s eyes:

If Only We Had Meat To Eat

The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost–also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!” The manna was like coriander seed and looked like resin. (Num 11:4-7)

The Miracle of The Quail

Now a wind went out from the LORD and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the LORD burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had craved other food. (Num 11:31-34)

Fact About God: They Got The Food They Craved, Then Died

A definite little known fact about God is that he gave the rebellious what they craved, then he struck them dead! In their case it was food other than the abundant manna. He let them gather and hardly taste the quail, but then God killed them. Asaph, when summarizing Israel’s history, mentioned this same event and provided added insights:

They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God, saying, “Can God spread a table in the desert? When he struck the rock, water gushed out, and streams flowed abundantly. But can he also give us food? Can he supply meat for his people?” When the LORD heard them, he was very angry; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel, for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance. Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens; he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven. Men ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat. He let loose the east wind from the heavens and led forth the south wind by his power. He rained meat down on them like dust, flying birds like sand on the seashore. He made them come down inside their camp, all around their tents. They ate till they had more than enough, for he had given them what they craved. But before they turned from the food they craved, even while it was still in their mouths, God’s anger rose against them; he put to death the sturdiest among them, cutting down the young men of Israel. (Psa 78:18-31)

It wasn’t God’s will for them to have meat to eat at that point, but God gave them what they craved to their own harm and destruction! That is one of the important facts about God, but little known.

Bible Mystery – Leviathan

The leviathan and behemoth are two strange ancient creatures acknowledged in the bible. Both are definite bible mysteries and mentioned in the book of Job. Especially leviathan was strange and furious.leviathan It was a snake-like sea monster with multiple heads!

It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.  It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. (Psa 74:13,14)

Isaiah mentions leviathan too:

In that day, the LORD will punish with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea. (Isa 27:1)

Physical Appearance of Leviathan

At this point, we know this about leviathan. It:

* had multiple heads
* was a gliding and coiled serpent (snake-like)

The Awesome Leviathan

Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope? Can you put a cord through his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? Will he keep begging you for mercy? Will he speak to you with gentle words? Will he make an agreement with you for you to take him as your slave for life? Can you make a pet of him like a bird or put him on a leash for your girls? Will traders barter for him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? Can you fill his hide with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? If you lay a hand on him, you will remember the struggle and never do it again! Any hope of subduing him is false; the mere sight of him is overpowering. (Job 41:1-9)

To this day the deep oceans and seas of our world have not been explored. We still don’t really know what is in them! Wouldn’t it be great, if one day the skeleton remains of leviathan were found as proof, for the skeptics? What all has transpired on this planet from when God created it to the present would surely be a mind-blow, if we knew.

Besides leviathan, the Nephilim are even more mysterious! Such Bible mysteries are not vital to know about in every detail, since they are not related to the salvation of the soul, the chief reason we have the Scriptures.

Letter To a Catholic Priest

Dear [first name]:

Greetings in Jesus’ name. Thank you for your letter. I read over it carefully. You quoted from the Apostle’s Creed and from The Catechism of the Catholic Church, but not once from the Holy Bible. letter to catholic priestThe reason the Biblical message must be stressed is because it is final authoritygiven for all Christian doctrine, correction, etc. The man of God is thoroughly equipped with the Bible alone:

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16,17)

So when there is a contradiction between the Holy Bible and Mormonism or Catholicism or Jehovah’s Witnesses, we must embrace the Biblical message to have the truth. If not, we are violating 2 Tim. 3:16,17 and believing a non-truth, which will be disastrous.

Regarding Catholicism the plan of salvation is different than the Biblical message. That is why you are still addicted to your sins. You are a slave to sin, though you are sincere, because you are not now acting upon the Biblical truth about salvation. NOTE: A real Christian is set free from his sin addictions (Rom. 6:22; etc.). The counterfeit plan of salvation offered by Catholicism is the sacraments, Mary and being a Catholic. Such is powerLESS to free one from his sin slavery and cleanse his heart from sin! The same can be said about Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. All false religions have a message about salvation, which will not set one free from sin.

Read over carefully and act upon the enclosed literature and write me back, if you want. (Remember, you are 100% SAFE to believe and act upon the Bible message! Do it to be safe and to have the truth and eternal life.)

Captive To Sin Again

Becoming captive to sin again AFTER being previously set free from sin addictions can happen! After the point of salvation different temptations and false teachings will confront the Christian. Some will be very strong and alluring. Some will be sudden and come when you least expect them. You must walk alert and self controlled. ostrich with head in the sandIF one gets deceived somehow and yields to sinful enticement such as sexual temptation or drunkenness he  must quickly and wholeheartedly repent again to restore his personal salvation and be set free. IF he doesn’t, he will be overcome and become captive to sin again as a backslider. To deny this is to ignore all the scriptures and observable evidence around us and to become like an ostrich with his head in the sand. Such doesn’t change reality. It will only make such ostrich-like people easier prey! Becoming a slave to sin AGAIN happens and that is why various GRACE truths are stated:

Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? (Rom 6:16)

What Heresy Is Like Candy-Coated Soul Poison

A direct warning about this was given by Peter, thereby showing it is a real possibility and danger:

As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; (1 Pet 1:14,15)

Hope For The Backslider

Remember, it was Peter who wrote that and who also sternly rebuked Simon of Samaria, for his backsliding:

Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps he will forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin. (Acts 8:22,23)

Peter taught the remedy for Simon’s backsliding was biblical REPENTANCE. Simon didn’t sin beyond repentance and forgiveness, like the ones in Heb. 6:4-6 who blasphemed the Holy Spirit! There is definite hope and good news for apostates, if they sincerely turn back to God. Furthermore, Simon would have to pray to God for himself to get forgiven. [NOTE: Peter, whom Catholics say was the first Pope, never wanted Simon to confess his sins to him, as Catholics do to their priest!]

Captive To Sin Again – Entangled By Sin and Overcome Again

Peter also wrote:

If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.  Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.” (2 Pet 2:20-22)

How do we overcome evil after initial salvation under grace? ANSWER: By doing good:

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Rom 12:21)

That is a broad term which simply means by putting God’s word into practice (Lk. 8:21) and living holy. Becoming captive to sin doesn’t have to happen. You can remain holy, righteous and blameless like Paul and his co-laborers were (1 Thess. 2:10). Christians do NOT sin all the time and must be overcomers.

Sudden Destruction – I Am In Shock

Hi Dan, for the last 6 weeks or so I have been friends with a young couple I have been sharing the Lord with. His name is [Boyfriend] and hers [Wife]. [Wife] is in a covenant marriage with another man and her and [Boyfriend] kicked him out of the home and [Boyfriend] moved in. They both claim to believe in Christ but when I asked them about their relationship they were not ashamed at all. woman hit by carLast week I came to my wits end as they refused to repent so I asked my Bible study fellowship last Tuesday to pray for my discernment what I should do. Last Friday I talked with [Boyfriend] on the phone and I told him that Jesus told someone to go and sin no more lest a worst thing came upon them. The very next morning at 1:00 am they were getting drunk in the street and a car came and ran [Wife] over and killed her. [Boyfriend] told me that same day (last Saturday) and he moved out of the home and went to stay with a neighbor. He is devastated. I’m amiss to say anything right now as I am in shock too. What should I say to him now? Any ideas?

[Bible Answer] THANK YOU for sharing this with us and warning them both. Her blood won’t be on your hands [and neither will his]. Their claiming salvation while being in ADULTERY and DRUNKENNESS is par for the course in our WICKED DARK DAY. She has no more chances to be cleansed from her sins through repentance. SUDDEN DESTRUCTION came on her just like it says in Proverbs 29:1. Hopefully, [Boyfriend] will do some serious repenting, while he still can. None us knows when we are going to depart and we must stay ready to go. We must FEAR GOD. Sin is nothing to play with. Psa. 4:4 is relevant.

Years ago, a man with a sordid background including prison time told me he was once an atheist before he repented and became a preacher. He spoke out loud and said, “If there is a God let him kill my firstborn.” Within the hour a car hit and killed his firstborn in front of his house!

Getting back to [Boyfriend]. I would tell him to learn a lesson from what happened and not play with sin ever again. Tell him he is NOT a true Christian and is in dire need of repentance for salvation’s sake. He might be a once saved always saved proponent. In that case you already know how to refute that LIE FROM THE DEVIL. GOD BLESS YOU. Remember 1 Cor. 15:58.

The Hindu Pagan god Ganesha

The Hindu pagan god of wisdom and prosperity is “lord” Ganesha, the elephant god, who is supposedly able to remove obstacles.hindi pagan god This form of idolatry and spiritual darkness is the glaring result of the absence of God’s truth, as revealed in the Bible. As sad and as ugly as his picture is, it is even worse that millions of precious souls from India and Japan are involved in such weird idolatry. Food (like peas and rice) is offered to Ganesha along with flowers. The belief is Ganesha takes your karma upon himself if you are worshiping him!

Smashing of the Coconut Sacrifice

This form of pagan idolatry also believes that smashing coconuts has the ability to absorb one’s karma. It is the only way to have a transformation and the most powerful way to celebrate Ganesha’s Birthday. Gum is the mantra to call on Ganesha and he is said to respond and come to you to bless and foresee obstacles! Very sad beliefs.

Paul Addressed Similar Situations as Ganesha

Little known to Hindus are the demons behind their sacrifices to Ganesha. We know that from what Paul wrote about similar things going on in his day:

Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. (1 Cor 10:19-21)

Imagine thinking you are sacrificing to a god, but in reality it is a demon! That is what is going on in Hinduism and other pagan religions. They need SALVATION TRUTH more than their next meal. The real transformation and new creation is only found in Christ and that is when one is Biblically born again.

NOTE: If your name is written in heaven, rejoice (Lk. 10:20)! Many are religious, but have gone down the wrong path and remain in darkness and death. That includes the worshipers of Ganesha, who desperately need the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation and forgiveness.

What Is The Brown Scapular

Millions of sincere Catholics wear the brown scapular thinking by doing so it will help them spiritually. They believed the report that Mary made and is backing a salvation promise in connection with the brown scapular hundreds of years ago based on their religious traditions. Over the years wearing the brown scapular has been perpetuated by sincere Catholic leaders, such as the one in this video, but it is in complete futility that it is worn. It is a false hope and a spiritual snare. wearing brown scapularIt is not based on God’s truth and is, therefore, just as deadly for the sincere Catholic as it is for the Hindu who bathes in the Ganges River thinking his sins will be washed away in the water or for the Muslim who kisses the black stone of Kaaba to be forgiven! [The picture to the right is Mel Gibson, the director of the Passion of Christ, wearing a brown scapular as he smokes.]

I too once wore the brown scapular as an Ex Roman Catholic. I know what it is like to be taught something and accept it as truth to find out later it is not only unscriptural, but anti-scriptural. It hurts, but TRUTH is what we must stand on to be safe. It takes humility in such cases to turn.

NOTE: At about 2:23 time-wise into the video, the speaker is quoted below. How could anyone deny that Mary is deified in Catholicism? Surely, this rampant idolatry is grieving to the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father. This is what Catholicism teaches about the brown scapular:

Brown Scapular Catholic Propaganda

And so, wearing of the brown scapular reminds us, should remind us, of three things. First, that we are children of Mary. Second of all, that we need to work for our Lady. And finally, it should be a garment of humility and penance. First, by the brown scapular we profess ourselves to be children of Mary. The scapular of our Lady is a badge or a uniform so to speak by which we profess to whom we belong and who we serve. Likewise, our Lady in turn by wearing the brown scapular, she recognizes us as her children, as her special children. And because of that, she consequently protects us and watches over us. The brown scapular should also remind us that we need to work for our Lady because the scapular, which means shoulder garment, was originally that, it was a garment worn by religious in order to protect their habit, their religious habit that they wore on a daily basis during those periods of work to keep it from getting dirty, stained, from ripping, etc. and so therefore the scapular is a working garb. And so this should remind us that there’s no room for lazy piety. If we wear the brown scapular and we consider ourselves our Lady’s children, there’s no place for lazy piety but rather we should fill our lives with good works. This brown scapular should remind us the need to faithfully fulfill our daily duties, and to make another adaptation of Scripture, to labor as good soldiers of the Immaculate. Finally, the third place, the brown scapular is also a garment of humility and of penance. So in a spirit of penance, we should accept all the difficulties of our state of life and all the sufferings that our Lady may want to send us. And the scapular will give us the strength to do this. In all of our difficulties, we can always grab onto our brown scapular, remind ourselves of our Lady’s protection, her watchfulness, her presence and especially at the moment of death, when we can call to mind our Lady’s promise of salvation. Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

* Not a single word about Jesus was mentioned there.
* The brown scapular is 100% religious mythology and idolatry, as Mary is deified as a type of Savior.
* No Bible light shines from such brown scapular Catholic tradition.

Do YOU know Jesus NOW?
