ellen quote 911 comment on Govt unable to solve problems

By admin On April 24th, 2019

There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them.

TWO SPIRITS IN THE WORLD

.

In Part 1 of this series on “The Two Spirits in the World” (click here), it was established that there are two ruling spirits in the world: “The Spirit of Truth”, and “the spirit of error”.

.

One Spirit is ruled from Heaven, while the other is ruled from Hell (“Hell” being the spiritual darkness of this world).

.

And so, either you are indwelt by one spirit or the other.

.

There’s no third alternative!

.

There’s no neutral ground in this world!

.

You are either indwelt by the Spirit of God, or you are indwelt by, “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

REVELATION 12 DRAGON

.

Next is the Revelation 12 Dragon: “And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” Revelation 12:3, 4.

.

Of course, this dragon represents Satan as he battles against Heaven. And as you can see, this dragon is spewing a wave of water from his mouth. This also is from Revelation 12… 

.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15

MICHAEL, THE SOLDIER

.

Last is Michael the Soldier, who battles against the Dragon: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7, 8.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, Michael here represents Christ as He battles this dragon. This will be adequately proven in this article and in various other sections of this website. No, Christ is not merely an angel. Christ is very eternal God. But Christ is often represented as various entities, such as a rose, or a burning bush, as well as many other things in the Bible.

“Wherein in time past ye walked

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Ephesians 2:2

.

.

.

.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.pngWith all the politically-correct phobias these days, you would think that Christianity would likewise get their own phobic status.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg Perhaps it could be called, “Christo-phobia”.

.

Yes, with the absolute hatred and persecution and murders of Christians throughout most of the New Testament era and the current Christian persecution in the Middle East (and even a growing antipathy here in the Western nations), you would think that today’s Christianity would qualify for a politically protected status.

But alas, Christianity does not qualify for the seal of approval from the overlords of political-correctness (whoever they are!).

.

.

.

.

.

.

MANY CHRISTIANS DELUSIONAL?

.

Even some self-appointed authority wrote a rather ambiguous article about Christophobia in Wikipedia, writing in somewhat double-speak, that it was “usually” the product of a delusional class of Christians who imagine themselves the victims of such persecution…

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpg

.

Listen…

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_movement.jpg

“Christophobia is the irrational fear or hatred of Christianity or Christians. While Christophobia is a real thing, it is usually used as a snarl word by some Christians with a persecution complex and (at most) only a passing familiarity with reality. There’s probably a good overlap with the people who claim there’s a liberal bias in the media. For whatever reason, the term hasn’t really caught on well as more verbose alternatives such as ‘anti-Christian bias.'”

.

Can you believe this guy? Does he have any idea of how many Christians are currently dying for their faith around the world?

.

Does this guy think that other “politically-correct phobias” are likewise not real, as he accuses “some Christians with a persecution complex” of being somewhat deluded? Probably not!

But, as Christians all know (or should know), the Bible reveals the true source of our troubles…”Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpgagainst the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:11   

.

Yes, it’s not actually the people of this world who are self-inspired to hate and persecute Christians. No, but rather, Satan, “the god of this world” is the true progenitor and overlord of political-correctness!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

SIGN IN HEAVEN

.

Well, If you look up and lift up your head, you just might see a wonderful sign, which God spoke about in Revelation 12. It is a constellation of a woman. The ancients only saw it as a great bear. It is commonly known as Ursa Major . It is also known as the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper), but with the addition of various other stars.

.

But with the eye of faith, it actually appears as the Revelation 12 Woman. You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful.

.

Listen… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place… from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:1, 2, 14.

TRAVAILING IN SUMMER, FLEEING IN WINTER

star-chart ursa major

.

In the summer night-sky, Just as this passage

 says, she appears as the woman-in-travail. But in the winter, she flips upside-down, to appear as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12, just as this passage states. But whether this Virtuous Woman is in labor pains, or fleeing to the mountains, she is the heavenly icon of God’s bride, His Church.

.

And now we need to explore how this fleeing woman in the heavens relates to us, the Church. Just like this fleeing woman, we too, need to flee from the wrath to come. But how do we flee? And where do we flee to? Well just read this article and you will find out exactly what the Bible has to say about all this.

Ellen White concerning endtimes

By admin On April 2nd, 2019

Of course, most people are not aware that Ellen White made some very amazing predictions about the end-times.

.

For one thing, She accurately predicted that the United States would eventually becomes the enemy of free speech, which only now is beginning to occur. She even said that it was unbelievable that the very nation that was founded upon the principle of liberty and freedom of expression would eventually become the enemy of those principles!

.

She also predicted that “lying signs and wonders” would eventually be seen on a grand scale in the apostate church-world, which only began 6 decades after her death.

.

And amazingly, her writings warned Christians about the soon-coming 1906 earthquake. just a few years and months prior to that horrific disaster.

.

But perhaps, her most amazing prediction concerned New York City…

On one occasion, when in New York City, I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after story toward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify their owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose, and in them the most costly material was used.  9T 12.1

.

Isn’t her description of these immense buildings a very accurate description?…(I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after story toward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify their owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose…)

Now listen to her description of the fiery inferno…The scene that next passed before me was an alarm of fire. Men looked at the lofty and supposedly fire-proof buildings and said: “They are perfectly safe.” But these buildings were consumed as if made of pitch. The fire engines could do nothing to stay the destruction. The firemen were unable to operate the engines. 9T 13.1

.

All of these statements were fulfilled on 911, when the Twin Towers crumbled in the midst of a fiery inferno. Although the many brave firemen rushed to the scene, they were crushed in those buildings without any hope of saving lives or stopping the intense inferno. And her description of that awful event was so true…”But these buildings were consumed as if made of pitch”!

Now, one remarkable aspect to this, her prediction, is that her statement about this dream concerning 911, was later put by publishers in a series of compilations, just happening to be put in Book 9, page 11.

.

Just a coincidence?

.

And even more remarkable is that she wrote about this premonition in late 1901, exactly 100 years prior to 911: a 100th predictive “pre-anniversary” to that horrific and apocalyptic tragedy!

.

But this is only part of the story, concerning Ellen White’s predictive dream about 911.

.

The rest of the story is found just a little below her description of that 911 dream…

.

.

.

We are living in the time of the end. The fast-fulfilling signs of the times declare that the coming of Christ is near at hand. The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude. 9T 11.1

The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones. 9T 11.2

The condition of things in the world shows that troublous times are right upon us. The daily papers are full of indications of a terrible conflict in the near future. Bold robberies are of frequent occurrence. Strikes are common. Thefts and murders are committed on every hand. Men possessed of demons are taking the lives of men, women, and little children. Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails. 9T 11.3

The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men’s hearts with the desire for selfish gain.

[Even the church-world has joined in the mad rush for money and self-glory!]

.

“Justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14

[Just look at all the crazy laws now being enacted, and all the unjust court decisions. Behold how the leaders of the land are calling for lawless disregard of the laws of this nation, merely for profit and power! This above verse from Isaiah is now finding its grand fulfillment!]

Now listen again to Ellen White’s recounting of God’s warning from Heaven…”I am instructed that when the Lord’s time comes, should no change have taken place in the hearts of proud, ambitious human beings, men will find that the hand that had been strong to save will be strong to destroy. No earthly power can stay the hand of God. No material can be used in the erection of buildings that will preserve them from destruction when God’s appointed time comes to send retribution on men for their disregard of His law and for their selfish ambition. 9T 13.2″

The Scriptures describe the condition of the world just before Christ’s second coming….[This entire article by Ellen White should be carefully read and fearfully heeded. Even her most ardent critics cannot deny that what is written in this chapter is now finding its dramatic fulfillment!]

Now listen to Ellen White’s prediction concerning the futility of trying to solve our great problems, without a deep repentance and turning away from sin in these last days…”There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them. 9T 13.3

.

Yes, the only hope and solution to the current pandemic crisis which now is occurring is to turn back to Jesus with all our hearts! Man is utterly incapable of solving our great problems, without the help of Heaven!

Daily Devotional, Year????….Look Up, Lift Up Your Heads, Part ?: “Over the Rainbow? Or Staying Behind Down Here?”

Look Up, Lift Up Your Heads, Part ?: “Over the Rainbow? Or Stay Down Here?”

To read Part 1, click here… “July 4th (Look Up & Lift Up Your Heads!)”

.

.

.

.

“There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home!”

.

Remember those words?

.

Well, perhaps the Reader of this article is too young to know about the movie which immortalized those words, “There’s no place like home!”

.

And for those who are too young to know, that movie, The Wizard of Oz, was a blockbuster mega-movie starring a fresh-faced young lady named Judy Garland, who played Dorothy of Kansas. And in this incredible movie, young Dorothy was taken up in a Midwest tornado whirlwind, soon finding herself in a colorful wonderland in which she and three fellow seekers journey to see The Wizard of Oz, to ask him to give to each of these four sojourners, that one thing which was lacking in each of their lives. Dorothy, of course, was wanting the Wizard to help her find her way home, back to Kansas. And in the end, Dorothy is told to keep repeating the words, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” And when she opens her eyes, she finds herself back home in Kansas, now appreciating her home and humble circumstances like she never had done so before!

.

So what’s the point of this article?

.

The point is, that this movie which captured the hearts of several generations, had a very suspicious resemblance to the book, Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan. Yes, The Wizard of Oz was an obvious secular version of that incredible allegorical tale, which captured the hearts of, and encouraged millions of Christian pilgrims since it was first penned in the mid-seventeenth century!

.

The big difference between those two tales, is that in Bunyan’s book, the focus was on the Pilgrim’s sojourn to the Celestial City (Heaven), while The Wizard of Oz movie proved that this world is the best place to be.

.

And just like Santa Clause, The Wizard of Oz had a very suspicious resemblance to God. Of course, when Dorothy’s dog pulled back the Wizard’s curtain, it was discovered that he was just a mere man, posing as the Wizard.

.

So why bring all these things to light?

.

Well, that mega-movie is a very great example of how Satan masterfully uses the various media to get people’s eyes focused downward.

.

On the other hand, Bunyan’s tale, Pilgrim’s Progress, got its readers eyes focused upward, to Heaven!

.

Oh yes, Satan is very subtle! He was subtle when he first deceived Mankind in the Garden, and he is even more subtle today, in the ways that he deceives the world’s citizens!

.

The Bible declares that, “Satan…deceives the whole world” Revelation 12:9

.

And as charming as this movie was, it nevertheless was a very subtle assault by the unseen Master Deceiver, to further enable movie-goers to disbelieve in the existence of God. Yes, it exposed the great Wizard to be a complete fraud! And in this atheistic society, the Devil and his angels have worked around the clock to promote this false ideology known as “Atheism”.

.

But the very Good News is, that “Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high”, there’s a land which is infinitely more wonderful than anything which storytellers and movie producers can imagine. And that Promised Land is waiting for the arrival of all Pilgrims who are weary of this world of death and hopelessness.

.

And the Reader is encouraged to also join the exodus out of this “City of Destruction” world, and begin the Pilgrim’s sojourn to the Land in which there will be no more sorrow, nor suffering, nor death, nor crying. And while lying in bed, one might even close their eyes, look up, and repeat the words, “There’s no place like Heaven, there’s no place like Heaven…”

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)

1Pe_2:8  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

By admin On March 4th, 2019

1Pe_2:8  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

.

What we must understand is that the entire bible is about the Gospel of Jesus, even as it is written…Luk 24:27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He (Jesus) expounded unto them (His disciples) in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

.

And so, this verse and other similar verse reveal to us that the Bible concerns some aspect of the Gospel of Jesus.

.

There are many who “stumble at the Word”, not perceiving that all those strange Old Testament stories were allegories concerning Christ, and His Gospel.

.

And so, when we encounter some strange account, such as the true historical account of the last night of Sodom, in which Lot offered his daughters to the Sodomites, who wanted to abuse the two heaven-sent visitors, Lot’s divine guests, we must attempt to find the underlying meaning of that story. In other words, the story of Lot and his exodus from that wicked city just prior to its destruction is a picture of some aspect of the Gospel.

.

But there are those who stumble at the word, who become offended, saying, “How could this supposed man of God throw his daughters to those horrible Sodomites!?”

.

But the fact is, the Bible is a double-edged sword! And God has purposely written His Word to save or to destroy…Heb_4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

JESUS WEPT

By admin On March 3rd, 2019

Lam 3:48  Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of My people.

.

This verse from Lamentations refers to Old Testament House of Israel as “the daughter of My people”. And the Lord, through Jeremiah reveals His sorrow over His apostate congregation, who valued the things of this life more than the things of Heaven…”Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;” Jeremiah 7:9

.

But today’s church-world is by no means impervious to this same condemnation which the Old Testament people of God were guilty of!

.

No, just listen to Paul’s forecast of the end-time church-world…”For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

This above passage speaks of a church-world steeped in worldly pursuits, earthly riches, and filled many unbiblical additions to the purity of the Gospel.

.

Well, this little article does not have time to enumerate all these pollutions which have entered God’s house. But there is no shortage of articles which do define exactly why God is unhappy with His professed people.

.

Bu the focus of today’s devotional is to stress the sorrow which God has over this apostate condition.

.

Listen to how we are to relate to the Old Testament…”1Co_10:11  Now all these things happened unto them (the Old Testament people of God) for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”

.

Yes, many or perhaps most Bible teachers today have the inability to relate all those Old Testament stories and prophecies to today’s church-world.

.

The Apostle, Paul, upbraided the churches of Galatia for not being able to discern the spiritual meaning behind the various stories in the Old Testament. And then he went on to reveal to them that there were actually two spiritual Jerusalems…al 4:25  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Gal 4:26  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

.

And so, because New Testament believers, both Jew and Gentile are children of their mother, the Jerusalem which is above. But the apostate portion of God’s professed people are of the “Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.” Galatians 4:25

.

And so, when reading such prophecies as Lamentations, the New Testament Bible student needs to understand that God is not only weeping for His Old Testament assembly, but also for His New Testament assembly, equally as much. Even the true worshipers of God have been so corrupted by all the antichrist deceivers within the walls of Sion, that we too have fallen from God’s approval. And He weeps for us too!

.

But God will still seek out His sheep… “…and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.” Ezekiel 34:12

.

The time which is just before us will be a difficult experience, to put it mildly.

.

But God must remove His sheep from the fallen and apostate conditions which have greatly corrupted His people, rendering them greatly ineffective in their service to Him.

.

And our apostasy has caused the following prophecy to be fulfilled in those of us who are living today…”We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.” Isaiah 26:18

.

Yes, God weeps over His people today. We have not brought forth Christ, neither have will caused the inhabitants of the world to fall to their knees and confess, “that God is in you of a truth.” 1st Corinthians 14:25
.

But the hour has come when it may be said… “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” Isaiah 26:20

.

Yes, the hour is come that we must hide ourselves from the approaching storm!

.

And even though God has been weeping for His apostate people, He is certainly not going to give up on His faithful one, in spite of our sleepy-eyed lukewarm service of the past!

.

No, “the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:21

.

And though the days ahead may be difficult, we can rejoice along with the Psalmist…”He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:6

.

Yes, we may weep many tears in the coming days. And even though we will be… “As sorrowful, yet (we will be) alway rejoicing”, knowing that our Lord will, “Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” 2nd Corinthians 6:10 & Romans 12:15 (parenthetical comment by this website editor)

.

Yes, every tear that we shed through the coming purifying trials will be met with manifold more tears by our Lord, who will be with us all the way up that Narrow Pathway…

.

“and, lo, I am with you alway,

even unto the end of the world.

Amen.”

Matthew 28:20

Satan a great humanitarian

By admin On February 25th, 2019

Mat 16:21  From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Mat 16:22  Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
Mat 16:23  But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Judgment Day

By admin On February 22nd, 2019

The story of Lot escaping the fiery destruction against Sodom and its surrounding cities is much more than a mere condemnation of the world.

.

Oh yes, that story should be a frightening alarm to each and every man, woman and child living in these last moments of earth’s history!

.

Listen to God’s judgment of Sodom…”Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 1:7

.

In this above verse, God destroyed those naughty cities to be an example of what we need to flee from in these last moments prior to the great day of Judgment.

.

But while the entire world needs to greatly fear that terrifying day of God’s wrath against mankind’s wickedness, this above verse from Jude has a special application to God’s professed people today!

.

Listen to God’s warning to His Church today…”Behold, this was the iniquity of thy [our} sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.” Ezekiel 16:49, 50

.

In this above passage, God is trying to warn us against our pride, our selfishness, our materialistic abundance, our wasting of time, our haughtiness.

.

No, the destruction of Sodom wasn’t so much for its perverseness, as it was for its proud and selfish pursuits.

.

How are we using our time? Are we using it to good account? Are we redeeming the time?

.

Or rather, are we squandering the precious hours of this day on vain/worthless pursuits?

.

Is my life mired beneath a mountain of earthly pleasures and ambitious pursuits? Do these words of James 5:5 describe my own lifestyle: “Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter”? Am I wanton (longing and hungering) for the pleasures and treasures of this life? Are my ears longing to hear some new precious promise from Scripture? Or are my ears instead perked up for some news, social or political gossip from the TV, the radio, the Internet or the printed page? Does my money go for the enrichment of lost souls? Or do I rather keep it back for my own personal pursuits? Or maybe I simply heap it up together, storing it in earthly investments, “where moth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break in and steal? (see Matthew 6:19, 20 & James 5:3)

.

Well, there is some very Good News! Oh yes, while the hour is late, there is still time to turn from this vain/meaningless world, and begin the ascent on that Heavenward pathway, the “Highway…the Way of Holiness”. We have everything to gain (everlasting life and joy for ourselves and our loved ones), and we have everything to lose: the choice is ours. “There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches. The ransom of a man’s life are his riches:” Proverbs 13:7, 8

But may

Mazda

By admin On February 18th, 2019

1990 Mazda B2200 4-cylinder pickup

with small back seats and camper

 

POSITIVES

Starts up pretty easy (replaced the starter several times recently. My mechanic guarantees his work, so last replacement was free).

Radiator just flushed at Radiator King on Washburn Way & Onyx.

New shocks 6 months ago.

Battery is still pretty strong I think.

Lights work well (replaced the lights switch on the column about a year ago, because it would go off and on sometimes).

Tires all in good condition, I think.

New belts just put on (old belts were squealing).

Engine rebuilt about 50,000 mile or so, ago. Compression seems to be okay, as far as I can tell.

Radiator replaced about the same time.

Has been a good road vehicle (broke down once, 12 years ago, on a trip to Salem when alternator went out).

Replacement parts are fairly inexpensive.

Has separate wheels for snow tires (tires from Walmart).

The summer tires are Toro’s from Les Schwab which allows you to have them changed to snow each winter and back again in spring for free (wish I had also bought the snow tires at Schwab’s).

Has spare key duct-taped to front bumper.

Stereo is only about a year or two old. CD player only used several times. Has stereo jack for Mp3, or whatever, and another jack for memory stick.

Should get about 20-22 miles per gallon in town. Runs well on regular.

 

NEGATIVES

Front driver’s seat somewhat torn, and driver’s seat doesn’t recline. You may wish to recover/replace driver’s seat.

Had a bad oil leak, but is okay for now. Seal or two may need to be replaced sooner or later.

Carburetor has been kind of noisy for the past dozen or more years. Makes clicking noise. But my mechanic told me it would be rather costly to replace ($600 or so), so I never did.

Driver’s window hard to roll up when raining.

Screws come loose from glove box latch every now and then. May want to put some loc-tite or similar product on screws.

Catalytic converter replaced 50,000 miles ago, but is dirty, but still okay according to my mechanic. (A few road trips might be good to burn out any build-up).

Gas gauge hasn’t worked for years, but I fill up about at 200+ miles, which has been a livable situation. You may wish to get that fixed. It takes about 15.5 gallons to fill.

In the summer it goes almost empty at 270 miles (probably goes empty at 300 or so miles, maybe less), but in winter at about 220-250 miles because I warm up the truck for 10 minutes or so each morning. Almost ran out of gas about four tanks ago, when gas gauge got stuck for some reason. This has only happened one time in 23 years as I can remember, but is something to beware of. Maybe you should fill tank at 150 miles to avoid any future problems. Anyway, it’s better for the engine to keep gas tank full, or so they say.

Wipers on driver’s side come loose sometimes, and should be replaced (or possibly just put on correctly). I just keep them on low and they don’t come off (“My-bad!”)

Window washer stopped working about 10 years ago. May want to have that fixed. (again, “My-bad!”).

First thing in morning the new starter sometimes makes short grunting noise for a second when starting. Not sure what that’s about?

The heater-fan doesn’t work on the highest setting, for some reason, but just had it fixed because fan off/on switch stopped working altogether about two months ago. But my mechanic couldn’t get highest setting to work, probably because I had an amateur mechanic “fix” it about a year ago.

There is a stain on back seat which I’m pretty sure is from a bottle of car wash I had in back-seat this last year. Hopefully will come off with simple shampooing.

**************************************************************************************************

REASON FOR SELLING

I have another vehicle with camper and am planning on possibly traveling this next year. Otherwise I might have just kept this little truck as it has been a great little dependable and economical vehicle. I would probably have had the seals replaced, and just kept driving it. But I have another truck and really don’t need two.

I’m selling it for only $600 to allow you to put some money into it if necessary and still have an inexpensive second vehicle.

If you decide to not buy it, I might sell it for a few hundred dollars more (it cost me $100 for new title). And now that it stopped leaking, it is more desirable for potential buyers. But even if you have to spend $400-$600 (or even more) to replace seals, I think it would be worth the money.

Nevertheless, I’m selling it “as-is”. So once you buy it, it’s your’s.
