The IMG of the Beast: Part I
March 02, 2015 - Globalism - Ecumenism
Not many years ago, students of the Bible struggled with many of the prophetic texts that had yet, as of then, come to pass. One of these issues was whether Israel would come back as a nation. Both the OT and NT alluded to this, but 1,878 years had passed and still there was no national state of Israel anywhere on anyone’s map. Then on May 14, 1948, there was. Of course, this is old news to us now, because this transpired some 67 years ago, but point being, until it happened, debate raged whether it ever could happen.
Rhyming Jewish History
February 26, 2015 - News From Around the World
We've looked at how the world at large refuses to associate terrorism with Islam. Even though the vast majority of contemporary terrorism is conducted by Muslims and in the name of Islam, people will offer non-faith pretexts for these acts.

The camera wasn’t a problem The Kippa and tzitzit that he wore, however, were. They identified him as a Jew.
Suffer the Children: Part II
February 23, 2015 - In Defense of the Faith
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 1 Cor. 13:11-12
The President’s Extremist Summit
February 19, 2015 - Terror - Islam
The White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism is meeting today to complete the President’s summit to find ways to deal with current terrorism. As I learned last week about my high horse- I ride the big high horse when making an unworthy judgment that beheadings and burning people alive is probably not something the Almighty would want- religious extremism is rampant in the world.
