Caught Between ISIS And Assad, A Palestinian Refugee Camp Is Starving To Death

As the Islamic State has seized most of the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Syria and trapped about 18,000 civilians, those who were lucky enough to escape have told of the ISIS atrocities they witnessed and one even described the barbaric nature in which militants used a person’s decapitated head. As ISIS militants descended on […]

Inside the mind of a Zionist Christian

I see this type of wrong-thinking every day. Wanted to share just one typical comment; this one happens to have been posted at Charisma. The Jews are God’s chosen people, this does not mean they get to heaven via a backdoor as there is no other name (than Jesus) by which man can be saved. […]

“One of the darkest chapters in the U.S. government’s history”

This afternoon I’ve been reading excerpts from the just released report which gives a blow by blow account of the horrible actions this government took in the name of “safety”. I won’t be posting any excerpts at this blog. Frankly I had a hard time just skimming through a small portion of the released information. […]

America, We’ve Got a Problem

Both a vital and well written article by Jim Wallis of Sojourners Ministry I was in Ferguson Wednesday when it happened: In a morally stunning decision, a Staten Island grand jury announced it would not bring criminal charges against a white police officer who choked a black man to death during a brutal incident last July. […]

Cowardly

Spent a great deal of time pondering on Revelation 21:8 this week, especially the word Cowardly. This morning while reading a commentary on this verse, and the specific term cowardly, I believe I came upon a fitting definition. “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, […]

Is there “really” anyone foolish enough to believe there is, or ever was, any hope for a two-State solution?

Reading this latest article at Mondoweiss I could not help but think of a recent comment someone had made concerning “Israel’s treatment of her neighbors” being , “much more humane, on the whole, than the reverse”. I don’t consider this an a humane act. In fact, it’s disgusting. Quote, It appears Israel’s ongoing incitement of […]

Stop the Killing

While you may not agree with this message, it should at the very least cause us to pause and think.  quote, On August 9, 1983, three people dressed as U.S. soldiers saluted their way onto a U.S. military base and climbed a pine tree. The base contained a school training elite Salvadoran and other foreign […]

Joining Islamic State is about ‘sex and aggression,’ not religion

God has a way of confirming things He reveals. From the moment I saw the first photos depicting members of this newest terrorist group and began to read reports of young girls leaving home and country in order to “join up” with ISIS (or Islamic State) I sensed this group was a “different type” of […]

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST

From Mike Ratliff I received the following email from my brother-in-law this morning. 10/09/14 Thursday 6:39 P.M. Prayer Request from Dan and Marilyn Wilson Missionaries who are in the areas that are being attacked by ISIS are asking to be showered in prayer. ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said […]

Thankful

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 In recent days this verse has been on my lips many times a day. Today, I’m so very thankful to be sitting up at my computer and able to check in at the blog, and it is for […]

A Message to Fellow-Bloggers: Haters Are Gonna Hate

Frank Viola offers some good advice in his latest post. If you are making an impact on people’s lives, you will . . . (not might) . . . attract haters. So if you don’t want any haters in your life, don’t speak, don’t write, don’t blog, don’t podcast . . . oh, and don’t […]

Home

Just a personal note. In the last 2 weeks two friend have went home to be with Jesus. Bill Ohmer was someone I first met over 30 years ago, when he was just a young man at our Church. Back then, he and his new wife became close friends with my two sons. In fact […]

An Exercise in Mixing Church and State

When I first heard of the Supreme Court ruling concerning prayer last week, I wondered how long the “HOORAYS!” would last before someone stepped up to challenge it. Tony Perkins article at Charisma was typical of all the celebrating going on after the courts decision: Monday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling wasn’t just an answer on […]

Hope and Comfort: The Resurrection

“…if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?  If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.  And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is […]

A Miracle

Something happened a few days ago which I must share, for to me it was a miracle! First, I just thank God so much for intervening in this incident…Thank you Lord for your ministering Angels. I have, what I call ‘that darn bum leg’, aha. My kids get aggravated with me for always referring to […]

Thank you Adam!

Anything I post here automatically gets posted at my facebook page (the title, a few words, and the link), and this evening Adam, after posting a comment under one of the recent messages (from below)over at facebook, let me know the comment “thingy” wasn’t working here at wordpress. Took me a few minutes of checking […]

Sad Comment

God has led me recently to spend more time at a number of Christian Zionist and Dispensational-led websites. I praise God for the opportunities He has opened up which is enabling me to ‘speak’ to a few people. Don’t get me wrong–it’s not all “a bed of roses”. Aha. But I have actually sensed, in […]

Twenty Years Later: Remembering the Rwandan Genocide

This week, I’ve been reading a number of articles posted by world news organizations, marking the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. It’s still difficult to wrap my mind around the fact of between 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were slaughtered within the first 100 days, while the world stood by. The Rwandan Genocide was a genocidal […]

“We were a one-issue organization: Israel!”

This afternoon I came across this old article (from 2012) written by John Hagee and published as an op-ed at the Washington Post. That one statement from Hagee, chosen as the title to this post, really says it all, doesn’t it. What the CUFI organization, John Hagee, and Christian Zionist are all about. They are all […]

When being a Controver$ial Extremi$t pay$ off: Ted Cruz signs book deal

Probably doesn’t hurt that your dad believes (and proclaims) you “are anointed as a “king” to take control of all sectors of society”. No denying it, being a controversial nut pays big dividends in today’s America. source Taking extreme positions and making enemies on both sides of the aisle is turning out to be lucrative […]

The Battle of the False Prophets!

If your eschatological ponderings haven’t left you confused already, this should do it: William Tapley, who has given himself the title, “Third Eagle of the Apocalypse and Co-Prophet of the End Times,” takes on John Hagee and his “Prophetic Four Blood Moons” See: End Times Smack Down! The Third Eagle Takes on John Hagee!!!!

Movie Review: “Son of God”

If you want to read an interesting review by someone (Christian) who put out the money to see this film, read this. Though I never had any intention of seeing it, after reading this, you couldn’t pay me to watch it…yep, it’s that bad; that’s if  you consider seriously changing, adding to, and taking away […]

Convinced of God’s Existence?

The past few weeks I’ve thought a lot about the question chosen as the title of this post. It began after I found myself following a series of messages written by David Reagan, posted at his Lion and Lamb blog.  His series is titled; “Israel as Proof of God’s Existence.” (There at at least 5-parts-all which […]

Kim Clement: Puzzle-Piece “Numero Uno”

If anything remotely interesting at all comes from these presidential races every 4 years, it’s the bizarre prophetic words you start getting from those like Kim Clement. He appears to have started earlier then usual this time around for he’s already giving us ‘hints’ and puzzle-pieces to put together in order to reveal “God” choice […]
