Hope in Our Darkest Hour

What an amazingly beautiful three years it had been as the divine Son of God walked with His disciples and followers. They had all been filled with hope beyond their wildest imagination. They received more than just a glimpse of the new life in Christ as they observed Jesus overcoming the many obstacles from both the religious community and the power structures of decadent Rome.  From the many healings to the casting out of demons, and the many other miracles it brought forth an amazing hope for humanity in their darkest hour. But now things were different as they huddled together in the upper room to escape the prying eyes of the cruelest power on earth. Whatever happened to the hope that would deliver them from their cesspool of misery, long before they would classify this as depression and anxiety? All of Christ’s most ardent followers shared the same memories of a new hope for humanity who embraced the power of love and forgiveness. Somehow the light from within was still shining brightly even in the dark confines of their new sanctuary. Continue reading Hope in Our Darkest Hour

Satan’s Surreptitious Drive to Globalization

Someone who has grown up in the West, and specifically in America, with certain inalienable rights along with the freedom to prosper financially with hard work and determination, is likely to find this article difficult to read. Any person who has fond memories of public education that always started with the pledge of allegiance to one nation under God and a prayer to the Christian God recognized by all, will find it difficult.  A person who grew up in quieter times with front porches, friendly neighbors, and big Sunday meals with the whole family around the same table is discovering that those days are now far behind us. Although we had our occasional hooligan, bomb shelters, and the civil rights movement, generally it was the best of times when the rest of the world seemed distant. Except for a few diplomats and some far-flung missionaries, most only saw foreign countries as a nice place to visit. Well, in the past sixty years everything has changed, not all at once, but one step at a time where most didn’t recognize it. Some, now, are beginning to wake up and wonder how did we get here? Have we entered a different reality that is literally pulling itself apart or is this Satan’s surreptitious drive to globalization? Continue reading Satan’s Surreptitious Drive to Globalization

Bring Trump Down to Your Own Peril

We would have to be blind not to see the liberal establishment aggressively trying to bring down President Donald Trump. This is much more than just fault finding and nipping at his heals. It is much more than just spreading lies through the dishonest media or marching in the streets. They have changed the narrative. By doing so they are once again making themselves look like the good guys in the eyes of the people. They do this by calling themselves the “resistance” as if they are resisting an evil power, but they forget to point out that they are the ones who have kept the black community in bondage to a life of drugs, gangs, and the crumbling inner city. They forget to mention that they are the ones who first sought to sterilize the negro or at least kill their unborn children by the millions to keep them in check and under control. They have changed the narrative by calling the conservative party the party of hate, yet they are the ones who have encouraged their people to resist law enforcement while they vandalize and destroy public property. They are the ones who have caught conservatives and beat them publicly. Unlike the previous administration while most conservatives remained relatively quiet the liberal establishment has attempted to block nearly everything our current President is attempting to accomplish by pointing out real and unreal negative points to all the people.

Trump’s Peace Plan for Israel

As the new President Elect Donald Trump is inaugurated in a few days will he eventually win the hearts and minds of all the people? Will he be the standard bearer for all the Western countries? And more importantly will he be able to bring peace to the nation of Israel? Yes, I believe he can and will if he succeeds in following through on his rhetoric of building the strongest and most feared military in the world along with nuclear superiority unmatched by any. He will not be dragged down by every little war on the planet as was the case with ancient Rome and previous administrations. Nor will he be bothered by meaningless Intelligence briefings in areas of little concern for his overall policy. On the other hand, he will give full latitude to such countries like Russia and Turkey to settle their own regional disputes over territory or religious differences in the Middle East. For too long now America has played and paid the part of the world policeman, at times pulling out when things got totally out of control thus gaining the disdain or hatred from the people we promised to help. I can assure you Mr. Trump will change this failed policy allowing him to keep the resources for the building up of this nation both militarily and economically. Furthermore, if his rhetoric holds true concerning rebuilding a nation teetering on excessive debt, crumbling infrastructure, mass (real) unemployment, and seriously lacking in industry then he will have all the resources he needs to exert his power upon the global stage, which is very important if he wants to bring peace to the nation of Israel.

Armageddon and God’s Wrath

Armageddon is no doubt one of the most popular subjects among modern day prophets churning out different prophecies at the speed of light creating ever more confusion among God’s blessed children. I am also including the topic of God’s wrath along with our discussion of Armageddon to help us truly understand God’s dealing with fallen humanity and the war that will end all wars. To fully understand the wrath of God we must allow all of God’s Word to speak to us. There is a wrath that is being poured out on all ungodliness since the First Century. This wrath of God is different in nature in that God simply allows an individual to sink deeper and deeper into the consequences of their own sin. This wrath is explained in detail in Romans 1:18-32 (you may want to take a moment and read these verses before proceeding). We see God letting mankind go three specific times to illustrate that at each point, as man’s depravity increases, his consequences are also increased significantly. God gave them up to their sinful desires; He gave them over to their shameful lusts; and, He gave them over to a depraved mind. As children of light we are not surprised that many countries in the world have now approved same sex marriages sinking deeper into shameful lust and a depraved mind. We should not be surprised at the increase in all manner of wickedness which is driving more people to secular counseling and psychiatric drugs to help them cope with the consequences of their sin.
