Post Temple Judaism and Christianity: “The Temple of Messiah”

Messianic Good News has posted a wonderful teaching by Peter Cohen, “The second destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E., along with the loss of the second temple, marks a watershed in Jewish history, even if not everyone saw it that way at the time … at this point Jews and the nascent Christians each began […]

Michael Spencer -Internet Monk: 1956-2010

God has called our dear brother and fellow blogger home. I received word tonight that Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk, our friend, passed away in his home in Oneida, KY, in the presence of his family. With them, we mourn his passing. With them, our tears fall. With them, we express gratitude that Michael is […]

Ark of the Covenant Announcement Due Today

There has been speculation surrounding the Ark of the Covenant for ages. My opinion has always been that if something were suddenly to be found or brought out, it would not be real. And an even worse possibility is that it could be cause for great deception. Over the years I’ve not changed my opinion. […]

Gold Dust (and more Crowder Mockery)

Below are links to John Crowder’s latest video clips from Indonesia. The one I’d watched prior to these today, was recorded in Korea; which shows his intent to spread this mocking blasphemous unclean spirit around the world. Gold Outbreak in Indonesia (John Crowder & Benjamin Dunn) Huffing Gold Dust in Indonesia! – Life of the […]

The Evangelical Demise?

Last evening I came upon two very interesting articles and want to pass them on. I think you may find them both well-worth the read. The first link is to a book reviewed by Trevin Wax at Kingdom People blog The book, The Fall of the Evangelical Nation: The Surprising Crisis Inside the Church by […]

Church History: Exile from Babylon

Church history is a passion of mine, so when coming across an article concerning the early Church, it grabs my interest. You may find this interesting also… Recovering Church History: Exile from Babylon The Iraqi Christian community, now nearly gone, was the church’s center for a millennium. Across much of the Middle East, the ancient […]

End-Times beliefs still steer politicians

I thought this was an interesting news article. It appeared in Canada’s Vancouver Sun in the religion/faith section yesterday. The columnist, Douglas Todd, is referring to not only American Politics, but Canada’s Politics as well. Hidden End-Times beliefs still steer politicians, despite exit of Palin In the name of good old Canadian tolerance, many have […]

The Tide Of Rebellion That is Approaching

From: Olivet Discourse: Defiance of Authority, the Increasing Phenomenon of the Last Days Quote.. In the history of mankind, there have been times when man’s rebellion has rolled in and advanced against decency and order. Then there have been times when man’s rebellion has receded. I refer to those times of reformation and revival when, […]

Is God Ever Surprised?

Just a thought before logging off tonight. I was reading a story at the Christian Post: When Vessels Break, concerning all the recent stories of those, well known, who have fallen away from the faith. I won’t mention any specific names for they’ve been written about and discussed over the last few months. In the […]

The Hard Places

A wonderful encouraging offering from another of our frequent visitors and friends here at Sola: Mrs. ‘Bucket” ***** Genesis 28:10-12 – “Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran. So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones […]

Oh Christendom!

IT IS AT THAT DAY proud and luxurious Christians shall learn that God is no respecter of persons; that all sects and names shall be swallowed up in these two kinds, sheep and goats, just and unjust; and the very righteous must have a trial for it; which made that holy man cry out, “If […]

The Second Coming by Corrie Ten Boom

“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” – 1 Thess. 4:17 “We were sitting in a park under the shadow of a large tree. A conference was being held […]

The Last Church Standing in North Cyprus, and Musings..

This news story found at the Christian Post, made me feel sad. Its the same sense of sadness I’ve experienced when walking by old Church buildings in my town and seeing them now turned into apartments or private residences. Before moving to where I live now I actually lived within a block, in which two […]

Leonard Ravenhill – The Value of the Human Soul

This is excellent. If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time you’ve witnessed false confessions of Christ, as Ravenhill speaks about in this clip… If interested in sermons from the late Leonard Ravenhill you can find them HERE and HERE. There is also an excellent post, quoting A.W. Pink which addresses this issue […]

God Has Been Murdered, The Earth Trembles!

“He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5 ***** Pay attention, all families of the nations, and observe! An extraordinary murder has taken place in the center of Jerusalem, in the city devoted […]

Friday: The Crucifixion

Every year I re-read this. It reminds me of the Great sacrifice which was paid for our salvation: A Physician’s View of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ   And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the […]

A Token Bestowed

  Does God ever present you with a little token…something which takes you totally by surprise and reminds you immediately of His presence, of hope, and brings joy bubbling up within? I love those unexpected moments. They don’t happen often, but when one does it brings such overflowing gladness and joy to my heart. They […]

Andrew Clarkson (1945-2008) Has Gone Home To Be With The Lord

Last week I had requested prayer for our Brother at Spiritual Pathways Ministries blog, but his race ended early this morning. Andrew is now in the presence of our Lord and re-united with all those gone on before him. Remember those he left behind in prayer, and if you would, drop by the blog to […]

Its well worth reading… From Reuters,  Ian Paisley to step down as first minister: BELFAST (Reuters) – Ian Paisley, a Protestant who set aside […]

Worse Than Sodom?

Very good article by Anton Bosch: Worse Than Sodom? A line in this week’s Time magazine struck me. It was speaking about someone who was “the political embodiment of the megachurch approach: “get people in the door with rock or cappuccino or stand-up (comedy) – but get them in the door.” The article went on […]

The Twilight of the Books?

Albert Mohler has an interesting commentary today: The Twilight of the Books?. Being an avid book reader and lover of books all my life, its interesting to read how little books play a part in the lives of most people today. I had to leave school at a very young age, 16, so didn’t get […]

Leaving A Church Behind

For anyone who has ever found themselves leaving a Church that has fallen into apostasy you might want to read a post which Ken Silva linked to this evening: Leaving A Church Behind. Thankfully this was a group which left together…it can be extremely difficult when you leave Church ‘family’ which you’ve grown to love […]

Redeem the Time

The world is full of beginnings and endings. We begin a new year with a certain hope–another year, another chance, a new day. But we carry with us the same fears, the same longings, the same resolutions. Is there ever really anything new about a new year? There was a particular time in my life […]

Apostasy, Hypocrisy and Violence

This afternoon I was reading over on Monergism,  and came across this: Apostasy, Hypocrisy and Violence. – “It brings me great sadness to report that a person whom I once considered a dear brother has gone apostate from the faith. With joy we used to go together to the house of the Lord, yet he […]
