    January 20th is past, and Joe Biden, not Donald Trump, is the President of the United States. To all those who prophesied that Trump would serve a second consecutive term and assured us that he would be inaugurated on the 20th, I appeal to you in the strongest possible terms: admit your error, take full responsibility, and do not, under any circumstances, continue to put a false hope into the hearts of God’s people. What you prophesied did not come to pass. There is not an alternative, spiritual reality in which Trump is still functioning as president. Nothing is going...

    A herb dealer, Rofiat Biliameen, has petitioned a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her two and a half-year-old marriage to estranged husband, Ahmed Biliameen on grounds of deception and distrust. Rofiat told the court that her husband was also blackmailing and threatening to kill her. “In 2018, when I was looking for an apartment to rent, I informed Ahmed as one of the landlords at Ayegun-Olomi, he promised to get me an apartment which he did. “However, he soon started wooing me because according to him, nobody would give an apartment to an unmarried woman in that community....

    They only think about wrong and bad things that they want to do. They want many things for themselves. They want to hurt other people. They are always jealous of other people. They kill people. They quarrel and fight with people. They are not honest or kind. They say silly things about other people. They tell lies about people. They hate God. They insult other people. They are proud and they say how important they are. They think of many ways to do bad things. They do not obey their parents. They do not understand what is right. They do...

    If I were hurtling down a rabbit-hole and a genie offered me one wish, I would likely request a tour guide. Now tell me that the past ten months haven’t taken us all on a dizzying Ozian spin. Look out the window of your space capsule and you’ll find you’ve entered an insanely adversarial universe, one in which the major preoccupation of far too many people is ”Who’s on my side and who’s against me?” Problem is, the adversarial universe is swiftly heading for cosmic implosion. It’s eating up civilization as we know it before our very eyes. Tell me...

    How did a tiny tribe of desert nomads become so important to history? Of all the tribes of people, why is it that a group of pastoral tribal nomads, who were minorities then and minorities now, seem to have such an enduring presence in our world? Why is the Judeo-Christian god chosen by more people on the planet than any other? Because ideas and the details matter. Their ideas have stood the test of time and ended up shaping many assumptions we take today to be self-evident in Western civilization.

    The inscription, “Christ born of Mary.” Photo: Tzachi Lang, Israel Antiquities Authority ======================================================= JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli authorities excavating in the Jezreel Valley have unearthed a 1,500-year-old inscription dedicated to Jesus. Excavators found the Greek inscription while digging in the village of et-Taiyiba. The inscription was engraved in stone in what is believed by researchers to be the remains of a Byzantine-era church. The inscription reads: “Christ, born of Mary. This work of the most God-fearing and pious bishop [Theodo]sius and the miserable Th[omas] was built from the foundation...Whoever enters should pray for them.” According to Dr. Leah Di-Segni, a...

In 1848, two sisters from upstate New York, Maggie and Kate Fox, reported hearing ‘rappings’ and ‘knocks’ that they interpreted as communication coming from a spirit in their house. These events and these sisters would eventually be considered the originators of Spiritualism. Credit: N.

  • How Could Trump “concede” To This Outlaw Candidate?

    I woke up this morning thinking about how Trump could “concede” to this outlaw candidate whose criminal organization illegally stole this election from the America People? The only concession is conceding that Biden and his criminal organization stole this election and have enough corrupt politicians around the country to pull it off. It seems we’re surrounded by the Enemy. But are we? Aren’t there more with us than with them? And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to...
  • Stain and Nails, Jesus Bought our Redemption

    We recently selected the hardwood flooring for the sun room my son and husband are building. We chose solid hickory for our new addition. We already stained the knotty white pine boards on the walls and painted the ceiling a light spruce green. My husband and son were talking about a nail gun that would be strong enough to drive all the way through the wood flooring without damaging it. As I was sitting looking at how the stain made the patterns in the heartwood and knots of the wall boards I saw how the contrasting patterns and figures in...

    My mother and stepfather had a very harsh view of God. As children we were not allowed to watch television, we had no celebrations of any kind. Since I was a stepchild, I was made to work till exhaustion doing household chores. As I became a teenager and was developing into a young woman, they told me that I was being sinful and overeating. They locked me in a basement with no food only water. I had a dream of becoming a missionary nurse, they told me I was too stupid to waste money on. They wanted me to stay...

  • The best Trump video you've seen in a VERY long time

    This is one of the best videos I've ever seen. About 5 minutes long but it sums up Trump, who he is and what he's done for us. I do not believe he's done. At all. Take the time to watch this; it will warm your cockles!
