Enoch, Enoch. . . Who's There?
What is startling about the Book of Enoch is the amount of Messianic prophecy it contains.

Everything Is Under Control
August 28, 2015 - Commentary on the News
Before I became a Market Analyst for the company I worked for, I was in Sales and Customer Service. Just prior to being taken over by a much larger competitor we operated like a small well-oiled machine. The company which took us over recognized these traits and offered my boss the privilege of being the Australian Sales Manager for a number of their products. That was a major pat on the back for us.
Terror in the News
August 27, 2015 - Terror - Islam
Today, not far from Roanoke, Virginia, two innocent children were killed. I say children, because I think we are all pretty childlike until about age thirty. Alison Parker was 24, a television journalist. Adam Ward was 27, a television cameraman. They were conducting an early morning interview with Vicki Gardner about economic development in their community.
Shemitah the Lord in the Air?
August 25, 2015 - Prophecy - Signs
September marks the next completion of the seven-year cycle (known as the Shemitah) established by God as a Sabbath for the land. God instructed the Children of Israel to work the land (and profit from the proceeds from selling what their families didn’t require) for six years, but in the seventh year (the Shemitah year) they were to let the land lay fallow. They were instructed, in that Shemitah year, to also allow the poor to glean whatever the fields produced (grain, grapes and olives) for their own consumption.
The Birth Pangs
August 24, 2015 - Prophecy - Signs
Treblinka. Sobibor. Belzec. These were the often less heard of death camps positioned along the eastern Polish/Soviet border, away from all civilization, and served only one purpose…to exterminate as many Jews as possible. In fact, more people died at Treblinka as a single point on the map, than at any other place in human history. Survivors from these particular camps were few, and as the subsequent years go by, only a handful of those survivors remain.
The Plaint of the Atheists
August 21, 2015 - In Defense of the Faith
First of all I want to affirm that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a courageous woman.
Supreme Court or Supreme Being?
August 20, 2015 - Commentary on the News
Remember the United States before the Supreme Court of the United States became God for we the people? One would have to go back to pre-1962 history in order to find such a world. Is this what the Founders of our great nation wanted, a god to replace God?

As a scientist, one of the most intriguing verses in the Bible is when Jesus tells His audience that if they don’t believe what He says about the physical realm, there’s no hope for what is spiritual (John 3:12). Because that means that what He did say about the physical can be taken to the bank. Even to Job.
Worthy is the Lamb
August 17, 2015 - In Defense of the Faith
Ever notice how much the world hates the Jesus Christ of the Bible? Mention His name outside the confines of a Bible preaching church, and you will definitely get a reaction. (You might even get sued or arrested!) Truly, He is the most polarizing person to have ever lived here on planet Earth. There simply is no neutral ground in regards to your position of Him. One either accepts that He is God come in the flesh, or He is not.
On Birthdays and Iran
August 14, 2015 - Terror - Islam
Rumor has it that when a group of 22 Jewish leaders gathered in the Cabinet Room on President Obama's birthday, he told them: "It's my birthday and I'm going to be blunt." At least one quote has it that Mr. Obama complained:
The End is Near: An Islamic Perspective
August 13, 2015 - Terror - Islam
Not too many months ago ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State (they seem to have an identity crisis) was regarded by the government of the United States to be nothing to worry about. President Obama referred to them as Junior Varsity. For those who do not live in the U.S., referring to ISIS as Junior Varsity is not complimentary.
God From the Backside
August 11, 2015 - Witnessing Tools
A while back I shared with the Omega Letter saints the fact that my husband was having back issues, and I have to say that the concern from this group overwhelmed us, and we could literally feel this group lifting us up. I have a confession to make. I haven’t been doing so hot either.
When Deeds Become Doctrine
August 10, 2015 - In Defense of the Faith
In a recent Bible study at church, I was going through the Seven Letters to the Seven Churches, when a fellow participant, challenged my understanding of the term ‘Nicolaitan’. Challenged may be putting it a bit gently. He said that my particular interpretation of it, was “dangerous”.
A Wicked Twisted World
August 07, 2015 - Prophecy - Signs
Depending upon what news report you read, President Obama's African trip was a great success. This is despite being rebutted by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta for raising the gay rights issue. Mr. Obama had drawn an analogy to America's past:
