In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon for exactly 70 years. Therefore, the end of the captivity, according to the Bible and other historical sources – including Flavius Josephus, a first-century Romano-Jewish historian – occurred in the month of Nisan in the spring of 536 B.C. This is the starting point of the fulfillment of one of the most amazing prophecies in all of history!
Many nowadays think that any talk of the exclusivity of Jesus Christ is intolerant and unloving and could even be considered by the politically correct as “hate speech.” The thought that He is the only way to find everlasting life, is seen by them as nothing but religious extremism.
As we know, on August the 5th, 2010, part of the San José copper-gold mine in the Atacama Desert near Copiapó,
“It was the Lord who put it into my mind…I could feel His hand upon me…There is no question the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures…
No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Savior if it is just and if the intention is purely for His Holy service. The Gospel must
True to Bible prophecy, Russia has risen from the ashes of the fallen Soviet Union. Likewise, the European Union, though currently gripped in the throes of economic upheaval, is still moving forward to solidify its role in the final days of this Age. In fact, on July 1, 2011, a major milestone was quietly passed in the evolution of that body.
Remember Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of an
As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day 2011, I am saddened and alarmed by the increasing number of Americans who are anti-God, anti-Christian, and anti-Constitution. Even TIME magazine questions whether the U.S. Constitution really matters.
I’m also greatly concerned about whether there are enough dedicated and bold Christians left in America to stand up and fight for the unprecedented freedoms that have been handed down to us by our God-fearing
After hearing and seeing so much anti-Christian rhetoric regarding our President, I read with great interest his recent message at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 3. Here are some highlights from his enlightening talk on his Christianity:
My Christian faith then has been a sustaining force for me over these last few years. All the more so, when Michelle and I hear our faith questioned from time
Every day brings news of another crisis, another bailout, another affront to our individual rights, another threat to our nation’s heritage, freedoms, and liberties. Jesus commanded us to recognize the signs of the season so that we’ll know when the time of redemption is drawing near. That’s why it’s important that we study these developments with a clear eye and an open heart. I don’t want you to be
The trademarked slogan for Las Vegas is “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” I’ll bet you probably feel a little like that about your church. You may feel like you can let your guard down a little when you’re there since you’re among friends and others who believe like you and live their lives like you.
Well, I’m sure that’s how a young, single Christian lady from Grand Rapids,
Iran went on the offensive after its industrial infrastructure was infected by the ‘Stuxnet’ computer worm. Though the Iranian government accused “the enemy,” it did not name any specific nation or nationalities. Instead, Iran’s security services arrested dozens of ‘cyberspies’ at the Bushehr, Natanz, Isfahan nuclear facilities and also in Tehran.
Particular attention has been paid to the many Russian scientists, technicians, and engineers who are in Iran building the
If there’s one contemporary cultural phenomenon that gets under my skin, it’s “Political Correctness.” Don’t make the mistake of thinking that “political correctness” is simply a product of the evolution of our culture and our growing sophistication as a society. It’s not. Rather, it is a TOOL being used by the ‘progressive’ (read that ‘liberal’) elements of our society to intimidate most of us into silence. If we’re afraid to
The Bible says that eventually Israel will stand completely alone and friendless against the entire world. Where’s America?
I believe these are dangerous days for the United States. Paul predicts that, in the last days, “perilous times” will come. He also describes what I believe will be the condition of the world’s most Christian nation in those days. Here is his portrait: “…men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of
To understand God’s plan for the world, it is vital to understand what, at first, may seem like a dry subject – covenants. In the Bible, God makes two kinds of covenants with human beings – conditional and unconditional. A conditional covenant is predicated on God saying to man, “If you will.” An unconditional covenant is predicated on God saying to man, “I will.”
Conditional covenants are like the contracts
