While many Christians are failing their main mission in the world – uplifting the glory of God and telling the world the good news of the Gospel – the devil is fast at work trying to defeat God’s plan. Instead of converting the world, Christians are compromising the with the world. They have forgotten to uplift the glory of God by obeying His commands, one of the first of which God ever gave to mankind – Continue reading
Jesus said there would be wars and rumors of war but, that these would just be the beginning of the birth pangs that would mark the end of the age.
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. … “All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs).” – Matthew 24:6-8
We are often called a nation of immigrants, because our people have come from so many nations of the world but, we have forgotten a very important truth about our founding. While there were many who tried to colonize this land; Vikings, Spanish, Knights Templar, Aztecs, only one group was favored by God to complete the task – Pilgrims and Puritans! Why? Because they came seeking God and to do His will on earth. They may not have been perfect – no men are – but God chose them to found this great nation. Some 200 years after they began, the United States of America was finally founded and its leaders elected by the people. The first official act of the new President and Congress was to thank God and dedicate this new country to His purposes. We were not founded on Buddhist, Islamic, Occult, or Atheist principles but on Christian principles found in the Holy Bible. In this act of dedication, George Washington also warned – Continue reading
Islamic terrorism is not ‘contained’ , it is spreading and intensifying. Recent events are verifying the truth of this, so why do Americans have such a hard time understanding this? I want to suggest a radical answer – we in the West have forsaken the God of the Bible! As the prophet Jeremiah wrote about Israel, we too have “forsaken God the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”
Israel Under David and Solomon
Don’t worry about ISIS – worry about God!
“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. – Joel 3:1, 2
1922 UN Mandated Territory
As you can see by the map of Israel under David and Solomon, Israel extends to the Euphrates River in the North and through most of
Jordan in the East. Damascus is only about half way up the map that God promised to Abraham and that David and Solomon conquered. In 1922 the UN partitioned the land into a state for Israel and for the Arabs. That map is shown to the right – later in 1947, to appease the Arabs for their oil, the map was changed to a new UN Mandate, which was
1947 UN Mandated Map
never accepted by the Arabs – they went to war instead, a war which they lost! So, when President Obama calls for Israel returning to pre-1947 borders, they are basically giving the West Bank, Samaria, and Gaza back to the Israelis, though I doubt he understands that! So, we have three groups trying to solve the problem of Jerusalem and Israel: 1) the nations of the world who want peace so they can continue making money off the resources of the Mideast or gain acclaim for their ‘legacy’, 2) the Muslims who can never give back land once taken by Islam and want to destroy Israel and God’s claim to the land . and 3) God who calls it My land (Joel 3:2) and declares that He has set His name in Jerusalem (1 Kings 11:36). Now, I ask you – “Who do you think will win this argument! Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Continue reading
Obama Threatens to Allow a Palestinian State
Obama Calls on Israel to End “Occupation” and Commit to Peace.
US President Barack Obama called on the new Israeli government to show “a genuine commitment to a two-state solution” and resolve what he called the humanitarian crisis in Gaza following last summer’s war. This statement shows the utter falseness of President Obama.
To Israel from Gaza
First, the only “genuine commitment” that would ever satisfy the Islamic Hamas in Gaza would be for Israel to commit mass suicide! Israel has made many genuine commitments to peace with the Palestinians over the past 50 years only to be rebuffed by the Muslims and answered with rockets, riots, and killing of Israeli civilians. But, Obama never seems to highlight this as they would not fit his repeated claims that Islam is a ‘peaceful’ religion!
Second, if Obama and the Muslims really want a two-state solution why not divide Continue reading
I recently wrote in the post Jesus Christ – the Promise of True Freedom that we must stand against attempts to rid America of its Christian heritage, even if it comes from our own government! In that post I quoted Franklin Graham who stated that “we have Muslims who hate Christians and Jews in key positions in the White House.” In this post I want to illustrate one more proof of that assertion.
Sister Diana Momeka, an internationally respected and leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS, was coming to speak to Congress about the atrocities but, she was blocked by our State Department prompting this reaction from Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom. She writes in a National Review op-ed that – Continue reading
