    "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.  In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.  And you know the way to where I am going."  Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?"  Jesus said to...

    Proverb 24 (NKJV)Do Not Envy Evil Men 01 Do not be envious of evil men, 00 Nor desire to be with them; 02 For their heart devises violence, 00 And their lips talk of troublemaking. 03 Through wisdom a house is built, 00 And by understanding it is established; 04 By knowledge the rooms are filled 00 With all precious and pleasant riches. 05 A wise man is strong, 00 Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength; 06 For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, 00 And in a multitude of counselors there is safety. 07...

    Proverb 23 (NKJV) Listen to Your Father 01 When you sit down to eat with a ruler, 00 Consider carefully what is before you; 02 And put a knife to your throat 00 If you are a man given to appetite. 03 Do not desire his delicacies, 00 For they are deceptive food. 04 Do not overwork to be rich; 00 Because of your own understanding, cease! 05 Will you set your eyes on that which is not? 00 For riches certainly make themselves wings; 00 They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. 06 Do not eat the...

    This is the fourth article dealing specifically with arguments presented against the significance of the Revelation 12 Sign.  You can read the first three here, here, and here.  We also have the internet's largest compendium of information on the September 2017 alignment here. My confidence in the significance of this sign has actually grown since writing these articles.  I've made it sort of my mission to prove this thing wrong, but I haven't been able to.  Debunkers like Richardson, McHyde, Crone, and Faulkner are not dealing with the specific claims and evidence surrounding this sign and instead are continuing...

    Proverb 22 (NKJV) The Value of a Good Name 01 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, 00 Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 02 The rich and the poor have this in common, 00 The LORD is the maker of them all. 03 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, 00 But the simple pass on and are punished. 04 By humility and the fear of the LORD 00 Are riches and honor and life. 05 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; 00 He who guards his soul...
  • Gallup: Only 24% of Americans Believe Bible is Literal Word of God

    A new Gallup poll shows that only 24% of Americans believe the Bible is the “literal word” of God, which is a decline from the 1970s, but the survey also shows that the number of Americans who think the Bible is the “inspired word” of God, 47%, has stayed pretty steady over the last 40 years. In addition, an overwhelming majority of Americans, 71%, believe the Bible is a holy document, inspired by God or containing God’s own words. “Fewer than one in four Americans (24%) now believe the Bible is ‘the actual word of God, and is to be...

    Friday, May 12th, is the first of several major milestones this year.  This day marks exactly 70 prophetic years since the rebirth of Israel on May 14th, 1948.  In the Bible, prophetic "days" or "times" appear to consist of 360 days each (e.g. Daniel 7:25, 9:24-27, 12:7, Revelation 11:2-3, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5).  In addition, this Sunday Israel celebrates its 69th anniversary, which means that Monday begins the 70th regular solar year since Israel became a nation.  Psalm 90:10 tells us that a generation is 70 or 80 years long. From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its...

    The Forward ^ | May 8, 2017 | Aviya Kushner
    Working for Barack Obama can be a career maker, but Hebrew readers have been puzzled by the explanation for the path that one former staffer took. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Michael Slaby, whom the newspaper described as “among the key tech gurus for Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns,” has founded a startup called Timshel that helps not-for-profits and activist groups use digital tools to increase their analytic capabilities. Sounds good. But where, exactly, does the name Timshel come from? “It’s a reference to [Steinbeck’s] ‘East of Eden’ — the Hebrew word for “Thou mayest” from the Bible [in the...

    Fascism You are no longer allowed to believe in God. Or at least, you are no longer allowed to believe that God did anything the Bible says He did. If you do believe these things, you cannot get a job in Washington if the powers that be can possibly stop you. Just ask Mark Green. An Iraq War veteran and evangelical Christian nominated by President Trump to be Secretary of the Army, Green regrettably withdrew late last week because he had supposedly become “too controversial.”

    A reader recently asked a question that many of us have probably wondered: if the Revelation 12 Sign occurs on September 23rd, why does it appear that the male child (Jupiter) is born two weeks earlier on September 9th? It's a good question that appears to have a Scriptural answer.  Not only an answer to the objection, but further confirmation and evidence of the precision and significance of this September's sign. In Revelation 12:1-2 the sign is described with all of its simultaneous details: the sun, the moon, the crown of twelve stars, and the woman in labor.  The...
