Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name…So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:1,4

Now that it's all over, I'm indulging in some post US election ramblings.
John, the Son of Thunder
December 01, 2016 - Israel - Middle East
Did Jesus play favorites with his original 12 Disciples? Apparently 11 of them thought so, along with many others.
In the Beginning, God. . .
November 30, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
We all know how the Bible starts, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth". Just ten little words (well, 8 in Hebrew). Ten words followed by about 7000 years of contention. But let’s be honest. The controversy surrounding these words can be narrowed down to just one of them. Only one of these words gets the world’s collectively in a wad: God.
Civil War and the Coming New World Order
November 28, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
This is quite a difficult and sensitive topic being discussed here today. But I feel that it is warranted, given what we are seeing play out before us. I don’t have any particular scriptural basis for it, other than it being more of an observation of the times. If anything, I would liken it to the condition Jesus laid out for His disciples when asked what the signs of the end would be when He said…
A Thief in the Night
November 25, 2016 - In Defense of the Faith
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the expression, like a thief in the night means: "secretly or unexpectedly and without being seen."
I’m Glad It’s Still Thanksgiving

Bloomington, Indiana is rewriting American history.
A Sheep of a Different Color
November 23, 2016 - In Defense of the Faith
No Sheep Shows after the Thanksgiving Day parade, so you’ve probably never seen a Piebald Sheep, an unusual animal considered an 'heirloom' breed in the US because commercial breeding has overlooked them. Meaning they are still pretty much the same sheep, physically and genetically, that they were thousands of years ago.
The Rapture, the Revelation, the Bell and the Egg
November 21, 2016 - Prophecy - Signs
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
A Cosmic Battle for Jerusalem
November 18, 2016 - Israel - Middle East
The destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple occurred way back in 70AD. Yet the desire for Zion has continuously burned in the hearts of the Jews throughout the centuries in exile. One might even say that Jerusalem is written in their DNA.
Giving God the Credit
November 17, 2016 - Prophecy - Signs
I haven’t watched much professional football this year because I am protesting. The TV ratings are at an all-time low in recent history, and the team owners seem at a loss as to why? Maybe the presidential election will help them figure it out.
November 16, 2016 - Globalism - Ecumenism
London was a settled by the time of Christ’s birth. Geoffrey of Monmouth, author of "The History of the Kings of Britain" (1136) traces its beginning back to Brutus (great grandson of Aeneas,the Trojan), who called the new settlement Trinivatum. It would prove to play a huge part in the evangelism of the rest of the world. That was then, however. And this? This is now.
This Was Your Life
November 14, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
While the world was fixated on the national elections, the Democratic scandals, the World Series, earthquakes, wars and rumors of war around the world, evangelical Christianity lost another one of the greats this last week with the passing of Jack Chick. There was no national outpouring of grief. No press coverage that I could discern. No tributes aside from what few believers shared on Facebook and Twitter. Yet, I bet heaven’s reception party was such that it dwarfed anything we simple mortals could have put together.
