    . .A CHALLENGE TO YOU Yesterday, viewers were challenged, and NO ONE responded. I am not deterred so easily. This series is about more than pretty pictures, and the Spirit has a blessing for you here. This is a new day, so please take a look.Thanks!Dan . .FOOD FOR THOUGHT In THE BOOK OF RUTH, we have three main characters: Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. They were real people but perhaps, as He often does, God intends us to see they are also types or symbols, each representing a thing or person. What or whom does each symbolize? Here are the...

    Greetings brothers and sisters!  I hope that your eyes are remaining fixed on the sky.  This journey can be wearying, but it will be forever worth it.  When the day finally comes, all of the waiting and watching and longing will be eternally vindicated.  Watching for the Lord is not without pain (Rev. 10:10).  Some are not able to bear this burden—all of the inward groaning (Rm. 8:24–26), doubts, and continual scoffing from those who are wed to this world (2 Pt. 3:3–13; 1 Cor. 7:31; 1 Jn. 2:17–29) take their toll.  But we cannot be shaken.  Yet for those...

    . .. .FOOD FOR THOUGHT IF YOU DON’T YET LOVE THE BOOK OF RUTH, please consider this. A “type” is a symbol, where the author intended a character to represent a thing or person. We have three main characters: Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. What or whom does each symbolize?NAOMI: She was a Jew returning from exile in a foreign landRUTH: She was a Gentile, a non-Jew, who was grafted into Naomi's family by marriage and followed Naomi loyally to Israel, worked in Boaz's field (but never worked for him), became Boaz’s bride and bore him childrenBOAZ: He was rich and...

For further information or to subscribe to the Christian Research Journal go to: http://www.equip.org SYNOPSISVarious cults claim that the Council of Nicaea (AD 325) inaugurated belief in Christs deity. The Da Vinci Code, a fictional work on the New York Times Best Sellers list, has recently popularized this view. The New Testament, however, explicitly uses the Greek term theos (God) in reference to Jesus Christ. Further, there was a consistent application of theos to Jesus Christ throughout the second century. Authors such as Ignatius, Justin Martyr, Melito, Athenagoras,...

  • The Medieval Carpentry Techniques Used in Notre Dame Cathedral Rebuild

    CNA Staff, Sep 23, 2020 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- After fire toppled the iconic spire and destroyed the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France in April 2009, heated debates ensued about whether the reconstruction should use the churchs original design, or use a more modern design and technique. Some proposed futuristic ideas included a rooftop swimming pool and a greenhouse atop the 850-year-old cathedral. Last year, the French Senate passed a bill mandating that Notre-Dame be rebuilt as it was before the fire, with lumber and medieval carpentry techniques, which were highlighted in a public demonstration...

    Residents of the city of Miass on the eastern slopes of the Southern Ural Mountains were surprised to find a statue of Vladimir Lenin in the city park doused with red blood on the morning of September 18. The figure of the leader of the world proletariat seems to have come out of a horror film writes newsmiass.ru. The mouth and clothes on the statue were smeared with red paint, and on the pedestal of the monument to Lenin, a man responsible for killing millions of his own people, the word Killer was written. Presumably, red paint was used to...

    Saint of the Day - Saint Andrew Kim TaegonThe first native Korean priest, Andrew Kim Taegon was the son of Christian converts. Following his baptism at the age of 15, Andrew traveled 1,300 miles to the seminary in Macao, China. After six years, he managed to return to his country through Manchuria.

Back home again, he was assigned to arrange for more missionaries to enter by a water route that would elude the border patrol. He was arrested, tortured, and finally beheaded at the Han...

    Moscow, September 18, Interfax - Forty percent of the respondents surveyed by the research center of the site Superjob.ru believe body of Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the October Revolution, should be reburied at a cemetery as soon as possible. Forty-five percent of the respondents aged 35-44 would welcome such a decision, according to the results of the poll seen by Interfax. According to the poll, an argument for such position is the opinion that Lenin played a complex role in Russian history and for that reason it is strange to say the least to artificially keep his remains on...

    Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Chrysopolis in Asia Minor. This was the last major battle between Constantine and Licinius for supremacy within the Roman Empire. With nearly 300,000 combined troops participating in the battle, it was one of the largest and bloodiest battles of ancient history. The battle was preceded by a large-scale naval conflict in which the Licinian fleet was crushed by Constantine's fleet under the command of his son, the Caesar Crispus at the Hellespont between Europe and Asia Minor. Once control of the sea had been established, Constantine moved his forces into Asia Minor...

    Stump the Priest: The Johannine Comma 1 John 5: 7-9 in the Codex MontfortianusQuestion: "According to the Orthodox Church, Is 1 John 5:7 original or a later insertion? I've been studying the subject, but I would greatly appreciate your input."In most contemporary translations of the Bible, you encounter portions of Scripture that are put in brackets or reduced to a footnote, and it is claimed that "the earliest and most reliable manuscripts" do not include the texts in questions. However, when you look further into these cases, you will generally find that the vast majority of Greek  manuscripts include the...
  • The Abraham Accords: Historic peace treaty or a false peace that will hasten the reign of the Antichrist?

    Christian Post ^ | 09/17/2020 | Michael Brown
    For evangelical Christians, it is difficult to look at major developments in the Middle East without wondering about biblical prophecy. Should we rejoice over the historic peace treaty between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain? Or is this leading to a dangerous, false peace that will only hasten the reign of the antichrist? Lets first recognize just how historic this peace treaty actually is. For 30 years, from 1948 until 1978, not a single Middle Eastern nation made peace with Israel. It was not until 1979 that Egypt made that historic move, ultimately factoring into the assassination of the courageous...
