Where is the Church?

Why is the American church seemingly so powerless against the atheistic worldview sweeping the land? The Bible declares that light overcomes darkness and “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.” (Prov. 14:34). So why isn’t the church overcoming the darkness? Perhaps it isn’t the church at all? Jesus said –

oil lamp“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matt. 5:14-20 Continue reading

The Russians are Coming!

Iconfederates of Gogn 2015 I posted a series of articles concerning the prophesied Gog Magog war with Israel but, it deserved to be updated as much has happened since then. First, let me recap some of what I wrote previously.

“In Gog Rising parts 1-4, I identified most of the nations led by Russia against Israel as: Russia, Turkey, Iran, Libya, Sudan, and others.  –

“You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.” – Ezekiel 38:9

War is upon us!

war with gog 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

The Coming War

The daily news is filled with acts of terrorism, acts of war, and threats of war in the Middle east.  Many wise men and politicians offer their plans for a solution but those I’ve heard fail to take into account what God has said about the situation. Nations today spend much time and effort developing their foreign policies to deal with such situations but few consider that God may also have a divine ‘foreign policy’.

Ps 83 title

God’s ‘foreign policy’ is described in Psalm 83 and the related Scriptures of Psalm 2 and Isaiah 11. God has a long memory, He is not only long-suffering towards man’s sin but, He also never forgets a promise made. With this truth in view, let’s look at God’s Foreign Policy – Continue reading

Is War with Gog Approaching?

In last years post named Revisiting Gog of Ezekiel I stated –

“Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark with nuclear retaliation, Iran’s threatening to wipe Israel off the map, ISIS’ threats against Jordan and Saudi Arabia are all setting the scene for Israel making a preemptive strike on Lebanon, Syria, and/or Iran. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt may even support such an Israeli attack.”

Revisiting Gog of Ezekiel

Magog 1982 canceledRecent events in world politics have encouraged me to re-post previous articles on the Ezekiel 38/ 39 prophesy. Moves by radical Islamic forces in the Mid East are setting the stage for events described in the Psalm 83 wars which I believe will trigger the Gog/Magog war against Israel. Ezekiel begins his prophesy with the statement –

And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth …“- Ezekiel 38:4f

and this suggests Gog is involved in other activities when he is forced to move into the Mid East. Many Bible scholars have identified Gog with Russia, even before Russia ever became a political power. If this is true, and I believe it is, Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark Continue reading
