The Bible has much to say about our situation in America today. Our news media abounds with stories of violence, political betrayals, racial tensions, and fake news stories designed to advance their political agenda. We have leaders who enjoy the power and influence that inevitably come with leadership but few that embrace the responsibility that should guide them. Leaders haven’t changed much throughout history – but our qualification standards they must meet have! God revealed what these standards should be to Moses through Jethro, his father-in-law: Continue reading
As one calamity after another strikes the U.S. whether they be natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, or drought, or attacks by terrorists and financial downturns, the nightly news seems to be dominated by bad news. We can no longer claim it is just the result of better news coverage as those who keep statistics have now shown that natural disasters of every sort are definitely on the increase. What is the answer? Continue reading
Jesus sent a letter to the church of Sardis in which He said –
“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.” – Rev. 3:1
‘You are dead’ is a pretty drastic judgment to those claiming to be Christian followers of Jesus. Jesus even warned their names would be blotted out of the Book of Life. They forgot the message of Peter to believers – Continue reading
I can’t get away from believing that 2018 is a pivotal year for all the world but, especially for America and Israel. In America it is obvious that many have drifted away from the Biblical view we once had as a nation. Our belief in the value of every human life has been eroded by the doctrines of convenience. An entire political party has fallen prey to these anti-American values and while I could pick many of these lost values to highlight, I will stress only one – abortion, which is the willful destruction of a life deemed unworthy to live. The Democrat party showed its true colors at its 2016 National Convention held in Philadelphia where they proudly proclaimed themselves as the Abortion Party! And there are many in other political parties that would also agree with Continue reading
A sad day for Ireland! They think they are choosing freedom but, they are choosing death, and death of their most precious possession – their babies! Continue reading
Paul warned of a great ‘falling away’ to happen just before the Antichrist appears. He is speaking of those who proclaim to be Christian but, by their lifestyles they are resisting the work of Jesus. They are doing the Devil’s work instead of the work of God even though they may claim to be Christian. They are the children of the Great Whore of Babylon who is clothed in the royal colors and garments of the Church but is really riding the Beast of Revelation.
Of such are all the churches that are claiming a ‘replacement theology’ which denies God’s stated promises to restore Israel. God clearly states –
“Then say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land;” – Ezek. 37:21 and
“Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, And declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, And keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’“ – Jer. 31″10
This is one prophecy many do not like to think about. It exposes the root cause of almost all our problems as people and as a nation. It is the leading cause of the overwhelming majority of death in our country. Yet most are not willing to acknowledge it. What is this great evil that is exposed by this prophecy?
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5,6
In my article Zechariah Speaks Yet Today I wrote the following warning –
“We are in captivity as much as they were; captivity to sexual immorality, to greed, to demonically inspired lifestyles, to destructive world views such as socialism, communism, and humanism, and to selfish rebellion which looks to government to solve their problems rather than to God, who alone can solve them!. Our educational communities are not teaching truth but are teaching doctrines designed to bring us down as a nation and a people. I know, I was a teacher for over 30 years in both High School and college and witnessed the corruption of liberalism first hand.
We are standing on a precipice, if we do not turn to the Lord – destruction, but, if we turn back to the Lord – healing, deliverance, and blessing. As the Lord spoke to Zechariah so, He is speaking to us –
“But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, they did not take hold of your fathers? [Your fathers wouldn’t listen.] and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do to us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us” – (Zec 1:6)”
In Revelation 12 and 13, Jesus revealed to John what the last kingdom of man would look like on the earth. We are fast approaching it – but many do not recognize it because it is so often couched in economic and political terms and many think anything of God must be religious in nature. But, it is spiritual in nature because it is all about God’s final plan for man. Jesus summed it all up in two portions of Scripture – the Lord’s Prayer and Psalm 2. Continue reading
