    A Video This is just a taste of what will be at the Second Trumpet. Note: all coastal cities will be wiped out by the meteor-induced tsunami (Rev. 8:8). This absolutely horrific event will take place before the Mark of the Beast is instituted (Rev. 13). Note that the Seal and Trumpet Judgments (Rev. 6-9) take place before the reign of the Anti-Christ at the last 42 months of the 7 year tribulation period (Rev. 13). The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
  • God's Operation Of Healing

    06/20/21 | Frank Broom
    One thing about receiving your healing from God is knowing how he operates, because when you know how he operates then you can cooperate with him. And in 1Corinthians 1:28 it tells you, God has chosen things which are not, to bring to nought(nothing) things that are. When it says things that are not it is not talking about things that don't exist, it's talking about things that are not manifested because if it didn't exist you couldn't call it a thing. So, God has chosen things that are not manifested (spiritual) to bring to nothing things that are manifested...
  • ON GLOBAL GOVERNMENT: Community, Hierarchy, and Fratelli Tutti

    ON GLOBAL GOVERNMENT: Community, Hierarchy, and Fratelli TuttiThe distribution and balance of power found in Western governments is attributable in part, the late Brian Tierney argued, to the Catholic Church. One Catholic contribution identified by Tierney was the corporate form of authority exercised in medieval institutions like monasteries and cathedral chapters. The fact the head of such an institution was selected by the members and existed to serve them, "ensured that community always offered an alternative to hierarchy as a model of right order in human societies."

    The Venerable Aloysius Schwartz.... The fresh-faced American priest stood there like Ichabod Crane: startled and fence-post skinny inside a wind-whipped cassock, his sharp, dominant nose seemingly pointing out to the ruination before him. Squatters with blank stares picked through hills of garbage, beggars huddled in cardboard boxes, and lunatics muttered into the long-traveling winds coming from the plains of Manchuria in northern China. It was December 8, 1957, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. But truly, it was Father’s Day—the first day of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz’ missionary priesthood in post-war South Korea. Putrefied sewage, decaying animals, and human waste scorched...

    Niet! Vienna Cardinal Prevents Bishop Schneider From Celebrating MassBishop Athanasius Schneider is only allowed to deliver the sermon during a 4.30 pm Roman Mass on Monday in Vienna's Karlskirche.The Mass will be celebrated by a priest of the Fraternity of Saint Peter. This news has spread like wildfire among the Old Believers of Vienna. Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who regularly turns his cathedral into a homosex showroom - has forbidden Bishop Schneider to celebrate the Roman Mass, allowing him only to preside at a New Rite Eucharist.The well known bishop has already been banned from celebrating Mass or giving talks in...

    Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time Mark 4:35–41 Friends, the story at the heart of our Gospel for today is the storm at sea. Karl Barth said that the stormy waters in all of these cases stands for das Nichtige, "the nothing," that which stands opposed to God’s creative intentions, difficulties both interior and exterior, difficulties physical, psychological, and spiritual. The disciples in the boat are, as I’ve often said, evocative of the Church, making its way through time and space. And those waters are symbolic of everything that besets the members of the Church. To stay within the emotional space...

    Many excellent Bible prophecy teachers believe there will be a convergence of the signs (all of them coming on the scene) at the end of the age. Here are some reasons to believe that is happening now. One, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on June 7, 2021, U.S. Sec. of State Blinken said if Iran continues to violate its nuclear agreement, Iran could have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in a matter of weeks. If Israel follows through on its threat to prevent this, Israel could be forced to act very soon. (Note: On June 14,...

  • A Quick, Compelling Bible Study Vol. 66: What the New Testament Says About Wine

    06/20/2021 6:50:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | June 20, 2021 | Myrah Kahn Adams
    Today we conclude our two-part series on what the Bible says about wine. Last week we studied the Old Testament, and now we uncork the New, noting the pivotal role wine plays in Jesus’s Messianic ministry. Wine is first mentioned in the New Testament’s first book, the Gospel of Matthew, when Jesus says: “‘Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved’” (Matthew 9:17). That “new wine” lesson was also...

    “Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the door of the furnace of blazing fire; he responded and said, ‘Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego, come out, you servants of the Most High God, and come here!’ Then Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s high officials gathered around and saw in regard to these men that the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men nor was the hair of their head singed, nor were their trousers damaged, nor had the smell of fire even come...

    Dear American friends, if this 4th of July George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Rush and the rest of our Founding Fathers were to come back from the grave, they would rebuke and testify against America for her national departure from Almighty God, the laws of nature and of nature's God and our founding principles, The most astounding thing would be upon their return would be that the majority of American’s would NOT have an ear to hear them and would fully reject them outright. It is true that we live in another type of day today; one that abounds with...

    The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation (Gen. 1:1-31, Ex 20:1-17, Mark 10:19, Rom. 13:9, Heb. 13:4). It is a strong family unit that rests and abides on the moral absolutes of time that will keep and preserve society from decadence violence and social breakdown. When these moral absolutes are rejected, the horrific consequences that follow are devastating to the children and nation. In light of Father's Day, godly fathers...
