  • The Nations That Forget God... why we are dissolving pt 2

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalm 9:17)In my last article I related how I recently prayed an exasperated prayer to God, not really expecting an answer. I literally cried out “WHY?” because I was grieved and upset at the rapid deterioration of the USA and the West, spiritually, morally and otherwise. Almost immediately I had received a very clear answer in my soul, which consists of three passages of Scripture, Romans 1, Psalm 2, and Deuteronomy 28. Please consider the lesson taught in Deuteronomy chapter 28 with me, and it’s implications...
  • Why The Nation Is Dissolving...(A Biblical Analysis) pt 1

    A few years ago I went to pray and cried out to the LORD an exasperated Prayer, “WHY?”. What I was referring to was the moral, spiritual and cultural disintegration of our Nation. It was one of those cries, to which I didn’t even expect an answer, I was just pouring my heart out before the LORD, in prayer and sorrow. But I did receive an answer, a very clear thought came to me which I am sure was of the Holy Spirit of God. It come in the form of three passages of Scripture… Psalm 2, Deuteronomy 28, and...

    UPI ^ | 1 Sept 1989 | David Tortorano
    If you're going about the business of living as usual Saturday, either you were not chosen to be lifted to heaven or the 'rapture' did not occur as predicted by a former NASA engineer. In 'The Final Shout: Rapture Report 1989,' retired NASA engineer Edgar Whisenant used clues from the Bible in claiming that 40 million born-again Christians will be lifted to heaven Friday. The pamphlet has been a big seller at three area Christian bookstores, even though Whisenant was proven wrong last year when his first pamphlet predicted a rapture date in September 1988. In his current book, Whisenant...

    The Christian Post ^ | 6/3/20 | Samuel Smith
    Former disco music writer-turned-Christian pastor in England, who says he was shunned at work after making what a coworker believes was a homophobic comment, has won a discrimination claim in an employment tribunal. London Central Tribunal Centre Judge Andrew James ruled in favor of 62-year-old Rev. George Hargreaves and found that the pastor had been unfairly targeted by a former colleague for stating his religious beliefs on homosexuality, according to British media reports. Hargreaves currently works as a concierge for a homeless charity in South Kensington called Evolve Housing + Support. He wrote the hit 1980s song “So Macho” before...

    And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. (Luke 22:31-32)I have no doubt that the warning Jesus gave to Peter is applicable to us here in America. in light of the recent slaying of George Floyd by members of the Minneapolis Police Department. “Satan desires to have you, that he may sift you as wheat…” . The traumatic events playing out in America, will definitely have this effect, they...
  • Spiritual or Political?...on Leftism

    Evidently it is very offensive for some who read this blog, when I decry “the Left”, and when I espouse somewhat of a conservative outlook. More than a few of my brothers and sisters in Christ have challenged me that I am being “political”, and not Spiritual. I appreciate the concern , and the willingness of those concerned to call me out on what they think is a drift away from the Prophecy analysis and Biblical Exposition, which I usually offer. “Faithful are the wounds of a friend”. I don’t consider myself ‘political’, I think of myself as ‘Spiritual’ ....

    Episcopal News Service ^ | 2 June 2020 | Egard Millard
    Leaders from The Episcopal Church have condemned the reported use of tear gas and rubber bullets to clear clergy and protesters from the area around St. John’s Episcopal Church, across the street from the White House, so President Donald Trump could use it for an unauthorized photo op on June 1. Trump “used a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes. This was done in a time of deep hurt and pain in our country, and his action did nothing to help us or to heal us,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said in a statement “I...

    The Economist ^ | 24 Nov 2018 | Economist
    The prime minister and many of his closest allies follow a fast-growing strain of Christianity "THE REASON why we are poor is inside us,” cries Nigusie Roba, his face sweating with emotion. “It is not the fault of God.” The pastor’s youthful congregants rise, palms open wide. Nigusie’s voice grows louder: “Tonight you will go home anointed by God.” In the far corner a young woman drops to the floor, her body writhing as she screams. Preachers like Nigusie—sharply dressed, charismatic, and renowned for exorcising demons from the bodies of the faithful—represent a strain of Christianity not widely associated with...

  • The Death Of The Simple part 2...an eschatological warning

    “For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice. And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, a young man void of understanding. Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house, in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.” (Proverbs 7:6-9)The book of Proverbs like all scripture, is multifaceted, it goes beyond being God’s psychology, as I noted in the previous post, although it is indeed that. It is also more than a collection of divine maxims, the teaching of morality, people skills, and...

    A Warning Against Sexual Sin By: Pastor Bill Randles “For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice. And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, a young man void of understanding. Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house, in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.” (Proverbs 7:6-9)The book of Proverbs is God’s psychology. It is startling in its relevance to our current situation, because all true wisdom is timeless. This story in chapter seven is as current as the Internet and...

    Bestselling author Francis Chan said he was previously cynical of healing ministries until God illuminated the Scriptures to him. Speaking during the virtual International Association of Healing Ministries conference this week, Chan said, "What I do know is for many years I didn't believe in healing, I didn't believe in miracles, it was pretty much what I was taught in seminary.“Humbly, I have to say, I used to ridicule people who spoke in tongues or prophesied or believed they could heal, even though when I personally read the Scriptures, I saw this available.”Despite being in ministry for some time, Chan...

    A Mississippi church that is suing to stay open during the coronavirus shutdowns was destroyed by arson Wednesday, according to local officials. Fox News reports someone also spray-painted graffiti on the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs, including a message that read, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits [sic].” Local authorities said there was an explosion in the front of the church, and the building caught fire sometime between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesday. Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Major Kelly McMillian told the local news that the fire is being investigated as a criminal act of arson....
  • Chicago Police Fine Pentecostal Churches for Violating 10-Person Limit

    CNA Staff, May 21, 2020 / 03:10 pm MT (CNA).- Three churches in Chicago have been fined after defying an order banning services of more than 10 people on Sunday, May 17. A former mayoral candidate, who attended one of the services, has said that he will pay the fines. Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church, Philadelphia Romanian Church of God and Metro Praise International Church were cited on Wednesday by the Chicago Police Department for exceeding the state of Illinois’ stay-at-home order and city social distancing policies which currently ban religious gatherings of more than 10 people. The churches were each...
  • Encouragement for a Strange Time

    I have been asking the LORD for a Word of Encouragement. Our world is changing, and as my friend Tony Koretz says, the change lately has been at warp Speed. In the space of a few weeks, so many familiar things have been shut down; Sports, Restaurants, many ,many jobs, public gatherings, and even churches have been closed. So many of us just want to get back to ‘normal’ but I am beginning to think that we will never get back to the ‘normal’ we once knew. The world seems to have entered into another phase in the process which...

His life has influenced mine as well as my work. He recently suffered a minor stroke, your thoughts are appreciated,” he wrote about his 80-year-old dad, who went to federal prison for fraud and was accused in sex and financial...
  • Thoughts on The Timing Of The Rapture

    By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:4-6)The...
