Pastor Dan Catlin of Messiah’s Branch has been hosting talk radio, short-wave, satellite, live webcasts, and podcasts since 2000.  He interviews best-selling authors in Bible Prophecy, ex-terrorists, CIA spies, as well as gun rights groups and others currently making the headlines.  He has interviewed my wife and I several times now.

His search for truth dares him to explore unexplained phenomena, the occult, and UFO s. Pastor Dan has many times battled real demonic fallen angels and has exposed destructive cult leaders.

Messiah’s Branch has a Mission Church which helps the homeless and poor in Wichita, Kansas. Currently Pastor Dan and his wife Linda are opening a women’s overflow shelter.

His greatest love is that of YESHUA and His FATHER, closely followed by his love for family, and love of country. He believes in the Hebrew Roots of his Faith, which he simply calls, Bible.

After being called by HIS FATHER and ordered by the same out of the corporation churches, Messiah’s Branch came forth, really a home church with a building he often jokes. The name Pastor Dan was given to him by the poor and homeless he cares for.

First Century Gospels Found!

Forensic Discovery: Washington Codex Manuscripts of the Four Gospels

Were Penned and dated in First Century A.D.


Dr. Lee Woodard, Theologian, Paleographer and Author

Dr Woodard is a personal friend of mine.  I own a copy of this book and can recommend it to Bible Scholars who are fluent in Greek and Aramaic.  My mentor, Dr. Charles Schism (deceased) and other Greek scholars have studied this manuscript and believe Dr. Woodard's findings are valid. 

Washington Codex (Codex W, Freer Gospels), says Dr. Lee W. Woodard, is one set of first century Greek originals of the four Gospels. Codex (Codex) W enables resolution of the synoptic problem. These Gospels are dated with Aramaic alpha numeric and pictorial symbols, telling the correct order and relationship of the four Gospels. The Gospel of Matthew (crafted originally in Damascus, Syria in AD 37, with some revision or re-penning of pages in 43 A.D., with final revision in Aun, Egypt in AD 67) was later used by John Mark and his scribe, Barnabas, for writing the Gospel of Mark in Antioch of Syria in about A.D. 69, followed by some editing and re-penning of pages in Aun, Egypt in A.D. 73. Then Luke (also in Antioch of Syria) used both Matthew and Mark's Gospels to fashion the Gospel of Luke (AD 74). [delete “then”] John’s First Edition Gospel was first penned in A.D. 67, with some editing or re-penning [delete “penned the final version of the Gospel of John”] in Ephesus in AD 97. Dr. Woodard’s Codex W: Old And Holy explains this great discovery that is so important for New Testament Scholarship, enabling greater understanding and appreciation of the four Gospels.

Does God Speak To Us Today?:

The Spiritual gifts did not leave the church,
the church left the Spiritual gifts.

 These signs shall follow them that believe. ~Mark 16:17 

 Book Description


Publication Date: February 2015



Does God speak to believers today? If the Holy Spirit ceased speaking to us, did Satan also cease speaking to us? Is it alright for believers to reject a gift God has given them? Are the spiritual gifts as valid today as they were in the first century? Romans 11:29 says,“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”

Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Mark 16: 15-18)

As a believer you know the scriptures are full of such instances. And this is the living testimony of millions of Christians today, me being one of them. Mark closed his Gospel emphasizing the point that the Apostles confirmed the word with signs following.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

We will show you that the cessationist position is simply not supported by the scripture; and in order to maintain their position they must rely on a rather dubious eisegesis of the text in order to support their preposition.

Independant Discount & Salvage Grocery Store Directory

This page is a State by State U.S. Discount and Salvage Grocery Store Directory. We've added this, as it was handed down to us, from another discount store owner. He waded through thousands of web pages to find these stores and verified most of them by telephone. Please enjoy the directory. Please, submit any changes or stores we have not listed via our contact form.

Some people wonder: What is a discount grocer? What is a salvage grocery store? Why is there not an independent discount grocery store directory? As I have searched for other discount groceries and salvage grocery stores they have been lumped in with the hundreds of grocery stores in the yellow pages and online yellow pages.

For those wondering what is a discount grocery store? Some are discount in name only as that is what they call themselves. Others are a grocery that through various contracts and sources liquidate overstocks and salvage groceries. These sell in their stores at discounts ranging from 30% to 50% off what the same item would sell for in your local supermarket. Sometimes these are no frills stores that resemble a warehouse more than a store, sometimes not.

For those wondering what is a salvage grocery store? They are a store that usually sells all the groceries returned by a supermarket to their warehouse. Why were they returned? Sometimes due to a case getting dropped or punctured which ruins one or two cans or boxes. Sometimes due to a manufacturer overestimating how many of an item to produce. Sometimes due to a label change or warehouse closing. For whatever reason these excess goods must be sold. Items whose packaging is compromised are discarded and the rest sent out by the truckload to end up for sale at your local salvage grocery store.

Our Version of Paul's "Tent Making"

 The Apostle Paul set a Biblical president for "making tents" to help support his ministry, and to not expect others to do what he was not willing to do.

I get paid for advertising land that is ideal for Christian community or homesteading, and for building websites.

This is my prayer for you:

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.  For I was very glad when brethren came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth. ~3 John 1: 2, 3 KJV
