Dear Compass Supporters:

Those who attended live and those who watched online know the Steeling the Mind Conference was awesome! We should have the individual videos up by next week. We had about 20K people watching online from 10 countries, that we know of. PTL!

We had a wide range of speakers who all contributed to the scope of the day.

But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 1Cor. 12:20-21

The Ark And The Darkness Movie- TONIGHT ONLY!

Susie and I saw this last night in our local theater and it's superb! It was so good that halfway through I thought I must be dreaming! I honestly think that everything presented was incredibly accurate.

The movie has a limited run (last night and tonight) and I realize March Madness NCAA Basketball starts today, but try try try to see this film. You will be greatly blessed. It even has a past Steeling speaker in it. CLICK HERE  for the trailer.

Hopefully there will be more air dates scheduled in the future. I can't say enough good things about this movie!!! I felt like Susie and I were at a Steeling Conference! 🙂

Our Grand Canyon trip in June has just a few seats left on the third date, and two seats just opened up on the first date that Susie and I will be on.

This is a long-weekend getaway for solid Believers who want to learn how the Grand Canyon proves the global flood of Noah happened exactly as described in the Bible. CLICK HERE for details.

The article this week, Tabernacles and Temples, may contain some info that even the most die-hard prophecy student might not know. Enjoy!

Use us, Lord!



All the temple servants and the sons of Solomon’s servants were 392. Ezra 2:58 

Tabernacles and Temples

For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement. Lev. 17:11

God instituted mandatory sacrifices as a key part of Israel’s Theocracy. He wanted to personally fellowship with His Chosen People and could only do so if they were cleansed by the blood of specific sacrificial animals.

Therefore, one year after the time of His rescuing Israel from Egyptian bondage via 10 miracles, God set up a system of sacrifices that would temporarily atone for Israel’s personal and national sins as the Israelites headed to the Promised Land.

The Tabernacle
While wandering in the desert, God gave Israel’s leaders instructions of how to build a tabernacle. It was basically a portable sanctuary where He Himself could dwell among the sinful Jews, His Chosen People.

There were hundreds of very specific rules for making sacrifices, but the main #1 rule was:

He who sacrifices to any god, other than to the LORD alone, shall be utterly destroyed. Ex. 22:20

When the Jews were diligent in obeying God’s rules, things went well. When they didn’t do exactly as God instructed, things went poorly.

The Tabernacle eventually made its way to Israel. It was set up in Shiloh which was centrally located. Sacrifices continued in this location about 20 miles north of Jerusalem.

The boards that surrounded the Tabernacle were replaced with stone walls, giving it some permanence in Shiloh. There it remained for 369 years until the First Temple was completed.

It was from the Tabernacle at Shiloh that the Ark of the Covenant was carried into war against the Philistines, who brazenly captured it! (1Sam. 4:3-4).

When news of the Ark’s capture was brought back to Eli the High Priest in Shiloh, he fell back off his chair and died.

But God plagued the Philistines with large rectal tumors (hemorrhoids) in Ashdod where the Ark was held.

The sore Ashdod men sent the Ark to Gath and the same hemorrhoid problem popped up. Imagine no one being able to sit! So the men of Gath sent the Ark to Ekron where the citizens there fared no better.

The Ekronites determined that the Ark was the problem and sent it back to Shiloh. To make apologies, they sent 10 pieces of gold back with the Ark. The Ark remained with the Philistines for seven months.

It took several hundred years to finally get the Temple built in Jerusalem on Mt. Moriah, God’s special place on earth. Israel had to first capture the city of Jebus on Mt. Moriah, and they renamed it Jerusalem.

And David had to first buy the threshing floor from Araunah the Jebusite that was located just above the Old City of Jerusalem (2Sam.24:18-25).

This was important because it was the location where Abraham offered Isaac as a sacrifice. This was God's most Holy Spot on earth.

Solomon’s Temple
In 957 B.C. the First Jewish Temple, called Solomon’s Temple, was completed. God wouldn’t let David build His Temple because of David’s sinful past (murder, adultery, etc.) and instead had David’s son, King Solomon, build it.

God said to me (King David), “You shall not build a house for My name because you are a man of war and have shed blood.” 1Chron. 28:3

The outline of the construction of the Temple in 1Chron. 28:9-21 is a typical outline of a good business plan today:

> Keep God front and center. v.9
> Be bold/courageous and act. v.10, 20
> Have a detailed plan in writing. v.12, 19
> Employ skilled laborers. v. 21
> Divide up the work among the leaders. v.13, 21
> Stay on top of your plan, lead. v. 21

The Temple on Mt. Moriah then became the only place on earth where the Lord accepted blood sacrifices for sin. Satan knows this well and that’s why Mt. Moriah has been—and will continue to be—such a contentious spot.

After the Jews fell into disfavor with the Lord, the First Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av, 587 B.C. by the Babylonians. The unfathomable amounts of gold, silver and other riches were buried/hidden before the conquest and have yet to be rediscovered to this day.(4)

Herod’s Temple
After 70 years of captivity, the Jews returned to Jerusalem and in 516 B.C. the Second Jewish Temple was built, called Zerubbabel’s Temple.

Having lost their shirts during their Babylonian captivity, the returning Jews barely had enough money to scrape together to rebuild their Temple.

So Zerubbabel’s Temple was a mere shadow of King Solomon’s Temple that was built during Israel’s phenomenally prosperous times. Solomon’s Temple was even considered one of the 7 Wonders of the World!

Zerubbabel’s Temple may have lacked the size and grandeur of Solomon’s Temple but it lasted until King Herod the Great came on the scene in 37 B.C.

Herod’s construction razed the existing Temple walls down to their foundations and they rebuilt the structure magnificently. It still didn’t have the opulence of King Solomon’s Temple but it must have been quite striking.

As He was going out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, “Teacher, behold what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!” And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left upon another which will not be torn down.” Mark 13:1-2

(Note—Jesus said not one stone of the BUILDINGS will be left stacked. Today we still see the Temple Mount’s perimeter support walls, but none of the ancient buildings.)

Although the Temple itself was not used during Herod’s construction, the sacrifices continued outside. So this is why the Jews still refer to it as the “Second Temple.” But technically you could make a case that it was the third Temple. Just saying...

King Herod died in 4 B.C. just after Jesus’ birth. Herod was the king who tried to murder Jesus by issuing the edict to kill all the babies in Bethlehem two years old and younger.

That’s an interesting date because it means Jesus could have been about 40 years old when he was crucified. 6.5 B.C. until 33.5 A.D. is 40 years old. There you have it.

When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, Luke 3:23a

“The age of Jesus is given in very approximate terms. He might have been in his mid-thirties” (when He began His ministry). Expositors Bible Commentary, re: Luke 3:23.

Herod’s Temple was ultimately destroyed by the Roman General Titus in 70 A.D. when Rome conquered rebellious Israel. In 66 A.D., Israel decided they couldn't take the Roman rule any longer and kicked the Romans out of Jerusalem.

Four years later, 70 A.D., Rome made Israel pay a hefty price by fully destroying Jerusalem and demolishing the Temple. Roman General Titus encircled Jerusalem, starving most citizens to death.

By the time the Romans breached the walls nine months later, again on the 9th of Av on the Jewish calendar, over half the population was dead.

Today on the 9th of Av the Jews fast from food and drink to mourn the destruction of the Jewish Temples. It's also a stark reminder they need to rebuild their Temple.

Note: General Titus captured so much gold, silver and slaves from Israel that Rome was able to completely finance the design and construction of the Roman Colosseum, which mostly still stands today.

Above: The Roman Colosseum today.

Above: Inside of Titus Commemorative Arch in Rome. Etched in stone is a scene from the victory parade of the Roman Army bringing back the golden menorah, silver and slaves from Israel. To build that Colosseum took a lot of dough!

The Tribulation Temple
In the future the Jews will rebuild their Temple and go back to animal blood sacrifices. We know this as fact from two verses regarding the 70th Week of Daniel, the 7 years of Tribulation.

And he (the false messiah) will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; Dan. 9:27a

Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),… Matt. 24:15a

Therefore the Jews will rebuild their Temple again after the Rapture and return to animal sacrifices. Below is the probable location of the Temple due to the fact it has to be built directly west of the Eastern Gate.

This Tribulation Temple’s location will be laid out by the Two Witnesses, John and Elijah.(3) But the Tribulation Temple is NOT the Temple from which Jesus will reign as King of the Earth.

Then there was given me (John) a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it. Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months." Rev. 11:1-2

The Tribulation Temple will be completed by the middle of the 7 years of Tribulation. We know this because it’s in the middle of the 7 years when the Temple will be polluted/defiled by the antichrist standing in it (Matt. 24:15a above).

We also know that the antichrist will stop the Jews' blood sacrifices in the middle of the 7-year Tribulation.

…in the middle of the week (the middle of the 7 years of Tribulation) he (the antichrist) will put a stop to sacrifice …Dan. 9:24b

This Tribulation Temple will be destroyed before Jesus returns to the earth at His Second Coming, when all the mountains fall down worldwide when God shakes the earth.

For thus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, as the shaking of an olive tree, as the gleanings when the grape harvest is over. Is. 24:13 

Who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; Job 9:6 

And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Rev. 16:20 

I can't quite imagine what it would be like when the Lord shakes the earth like someone shakes an olive tree. That's a whole lot of shaking going on, as Elvis once said. Glad I won't be here!

The Millennial Temple
A new Millennial Temple will be built on a raised Mt. Moriah at the end of the Tribulation.

Now it will come about that in the last days the mountain of the house of the LORD will be established as the chief of the mountains, and will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it. Is. 2:2

Currently, Mt. Moriah sits well below Mount of Olives to the East and Mount Zion to the west. This will change big time at the end of the Tribulation.

Ezekiel also tells us, somewhat perplexingly, they will still be offering sacrifices in the Millennium. Hmmm...

And He said to me, “Son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘These are the statutes for the altar on the day it is built, to offer burnt offerings on it and to sprinkle blood on it." Ezek. 43:18

We must assume these sacrifices are not for atonement, since Jesus’ death was once and for all, but as a reminder of Jesus’ shed blood paying the price for our sin.

…because this He did (die) once for all when He offered up Himself… once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. Heb. 7:27b, 9:12b

All I know for sure is that when we do get there, the continuing sacrifices will make sense. We just don’t see clearly at the moment.

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; 1Cor. 13:12

Supporting Israel Before The Rapture

Israel proper and the Jewish people are both very special to the Lord. As we get closer to the Rapture, Israel will continue to be presented as a horrible dirt ball in the major liberal news. Don't ever think that!

We should always support Israel's right to their God-given land. And we should continuously pray for the peace in Jerusalem.

And since God is sending His Two Witnesses to show where the Jews are to build the Tribulation Temple, we should support them in that endeavor also!

Use us, Lord!


I feel sorry for anyone trying to understand what's going on in the world without using the Bible as a guide! BP

Drugged Fish?

4-minute video


Well now this is interesting... remember the video "Watch The Water" from about 2 years ago? It said the amount of drugs going into our lakes, rivers and ultimately our oceans are polluted. And now we're seeing millions of fish losing their minds, swimming in circles, etc.

That reminds me of these verses talking about fish dying in the Tribulation:

The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died. Rev. 16:3

a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; Rev. 8:9a

Something fishy may be going on that will play out in the Tribulation.

New Evidence Emerges In Arizona Election Case

Criminal Covid

Article and/or 49-minute video


Tucker Carlson interviews Dr. Pierre Kory, who saw through the ruse early in 2020. They recognize factually that the experimental Covid va((ines were government-funded as an aggressive, global campaign using U.S. dollars to coerce billions of people to inject themselves with the poisonous shot.

Kory explains the stats show that conservatively there have been some 158,000 excess deaths in the first 9 months last year in the USA—17,000 dying every month.

Yes Martha, they're trying to kill us!!! The only thing we don't know is at what pace people will die between now and the Rapture.

A new trial out of Thailand recently published in the medical peer-reviewed literature with 995 participants showed that treatment with fluvoxamine and at least one other drug was 100% successful in preventing hospitalization from COVID. For those receiving standard of care, 37.5% required hospitalization.

We presented evidence from multiple trials of the efficacy of fluvoxamine in early 2021 to the FDA in our EUA application, but they said that the benefits didn’t outweigh the risks and denied our EUA.

Their decision made no sense as the scientific evidence couldn’t have been more clear at the time.

Now, with this new trial result published, the FDA, CDC, NIH will continue to ignore this data, just as they have in the past. They will continue to recommend the unsafe and ineffective COVID vaccine as the only recommended treatment for COVID.

I predict that the CDC, FDA, NIH, WHO, and Gates Foundation will never inform doctors or recommend any of these highly effective and safe early treatment combination drugs; it simply doesn’t matter how strong the evidence is.

- Steve Kirsch

So the question is why? Why are the CDC, FDA, NIH, WHO, and the Gates Foundation still unwilling to recommend wholly effective, safe and early treatment combination drugs? It’s because it’s not about health. It’s about world death, destruction and dominion. CQLJ!



A recent congressional hearing is opening a lot of eyes. We've learned that Treasury Department officials told financial institutions that buying religious texts like a Bible, supporting former President Donald Trump, or shopping at sporting goods stores flags law-abiding Americans as potential domestic terrorists.

This kind of unconstitutional lawlessness is not slowing down. They have the bit in their mouth and are running at a full gallop!

Kooky Russell Brand interviews Mike Benz re censorship...oh wow. The CHD article does a good job of recapping the video if you're short on time.




Lab meat is not God's food He provided! And it causes cancer. There you have it.


When Every Minute Counts

With ambulance response times in the U.K. averaging over eight minutes for those in a life-threatening situation, there's certainly room for improvement. This is acknowledged by the U.K. authorities, which have set a target of seven minutes for such calls, even though that could still be far too late for many people.

Meanwhile, response times for less threatening but still very serious events, such as stroke and sepsis, average around 36 minutes, while women in the later stages of labor usually have to wait over two hours for an ambulance.

So what's the answer? ELECTRONIC AMBULANCES! Of course.


Preparing For Chaos?



The latest elephant-in-the-room is what happens when they give the green light to millions of military age illegals to cause widespread chaos in America? And when? It's a bit unnerving to think about, but unfortunately necessary as we have no idea what might happen between now and the Rapture.

I tend to think we're probably safe from something like that, but not 100%. And think about this, if you talk to some Believers around the world who just had their houses burned down, their kids murdered and their wife carted off, it's ridiculous to say "We'll be Raptured before it gets bad."

But the Lord is in control and he says to pray daily for protection from the evil one:

“Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven, blessed be Your name.
‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
‘Give us this day our daily bread.
‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [the evil one]
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’ Matt. 6:9-13

Called the Lord's prayer, it's an outline. "Pray in this way" doesn't mean quote the prayer. These are just the things to pray for.

Does anyone see the irony in this ad? I underlined it in red...LOL!

Russian Forces Move Closer To The Mountains Of Israel



Well, if we're close to the Ezekiel 38/39 war, this is what we should be seeing. And that war, I believe, comes right after the Rapture. So when you see Christmas lights, know Thanksgiving is close.


Va((ine = Increased Death

Steve Kirsch Interviewed Deanna Kline, RN, MSN, AGNP who has been with a geriatric medical practice in the US for over 7 years (size ~1,000 patients). The practice has been in existence for 39 years.

Prior to 2021, all-cause deaths per year ranged between 7 to 10 people.

In 2020, the height of COVID, there were just 7 deaths!

In 2021, there were 13 deaths.

In 2022, there were 36 deaths.

In 2023, there were 48 deaths.

That’s nearly a 5X increase in all-cause deaths.

Deanna attributes the huge increases to the COVID vaccine.

Around 75% of the elderly in the practice were vaccinated. She observed that the vaccinated had uniformly higher mortality and morbidity.

There was NO reduction in COVID cases in the vaccinated; if anything, they were more likely to be sick; exactly the opposite of what we were told.

In addition, she noticed six cases of RSV in the elderly where normally there would be zero cases. All 6 cases recently received the COVID booster shot. Coincidence? Unlikely.

Also, the vaccinated were more likely to suffer from long COVID compared to the unvaccinated.

Bottom line: No benefits observed. Only downsides.

Based on her experience at the clinic, Deanna doesn't recommend the COVID vaccine for anyone.

A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words!

In an effort to humanize the victims of abortion in the minds of young people, lawmakers in Tennessee, West Virginia, Iowa, and beyond are following in the footsteps of North Dakota with legislation to show high-quality video of unborn babies to children in government schools. Naturally, the abortion lobby is up in arms.  Alex Newman

Love it!!

Well, we do live in a communist country....you can only see what they want you to see.


Staying Ahead of the Crooks

How to spot and avoid spoofed websites / Charles Schwab

Scams are growing in number and in sophistication. One way involves using spoofed websites – clever imitations designed to resemble legitimate businesses, including financial institutions.

To spoof a website, bad actors purchase "sponsored links” to fake sites which appear at the top of search results. Their goal is to boost their site’s visibility and lure unsuspecting users into clicking on them. These deceptive sites can pose serious risks by exposing consumers to potential malware, identity theft, and financial loss.
Not to worry! We’re here to arm you with knowledge so you can recognize spoofed websites and steer clear of them.

What to watch for:

URL errors and issues: Look for misspellings or unusual domain extensions. A single letter out of place might mean you’re on a fake site.

Grammar and spelling mistakes: Legitimate sites take care to avoid errors. If you spot poor grammar, spelling, or formatting mistakes in content, that’s often your first clue it’s a fake site.

False security notification: Once you click on a site link, you’re presented with a screen notifying you of a login issue and directing you to a hotline number. Wording on these fake sites may mention “unauthorized activity” or other details designed to trigger anxiety and panic.

Request for personal information: Schwab will never ask you over the phone for your account login password. If someone is asking you for your account login password by phone, do not provide it.

Privacy policy: Genuine sites will have a privacy policy available. If it’s missing, think twice.

How To Protect Yourself:

Avoid searching for a site: Use your saved bookmarks for visiting websites, especially financial ones, to avoid the risk of phishing and downloading malware.

Question urgency: Phishing attempts often create a sense of urgency. Take a moment to verify the information through official channels.

Use secure networks: Access financial accounts only through secure networks and consider enabling multi-factor authentication where possible.

Call before acting: If you have concerns about a site or link, it’s always best to contact us before taking any action, like downloading software. Instead, call us at the number below to confirm you’re on a legitimate website.


Who Do YOU Trust?

Never forget, those running the government (globalists/satanists) are trying to:

1-severely reduce the world population
2-set up a world government
3-control every person’s action and thought
