The Great Divide: A White House War on Israel?
A growing divide has been occurring between the White House and the leadership of Israel. Recent attacks of Israel by high-ranking officials in the Obama administration have shown that this growing divide has become a great divide. What ultimately explains this great divide? Surprisingly, the answer comes from Bible prophecy. This article shows explains.Joseph – The Young Christ Earthly Protector
This is the season that we celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus. It is a wonderful time of the year and Joseph had a major part in caring for and protecting Jesus.John The Baptist Meets Eminem
This is the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See! I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way. He is a voice calling out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way for the Lord! Make his paths straight!'” John was baptizing in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. People from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were flocking to him, being baptized by him while they confessed their sins. Now John was dressed in camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey. He kept proclaiming, “The one who is coming after me is stronger than I am, and I am not worthy to bend down and untie his sandal straps. I baptized you with water, but it is he who will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”Christ Is King!
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be assembled in front of him, and he will separate them from each other as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” (Vss. 31-32)Philippians 4:13 – Understanding This Important Passage of Scripture
Philippians 4:13 is one of the most famous passages of Scripture in the Bible. Different translations vary slightly in the wording, but most people know this verse as “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”The Sufficiency Of The Saviour
As the gospel is applied we hear the message that, “He that believes is not condemned” (John 3:18). This is actually looking at the negative side of things for it tells us what we are not rather than what we are! However, even if this was all there were for us it would be thrilling for as P.T. Forsyth says, “As a race we’re not even stray sheep, or wandering prodigals — we are rebels taken with weapons in our hands.”Perpetuating the Myth or Recasting Chanukah
Simply put, the Pharisees and their exponent, rabbinic Judaism refused to credit the Sadducees with any relevance. In effect the intention of the rabbis and Sages was to write out of history the important contributions the Sadducees made towards the development of the Jewish people. The Talmudic version of Chanukah was no more than a ruse to thwart attention away from the Sadducees and to give undue credit to the Pharisees in their fight against the Greeks. The Book of the Maccabees l, however tells the true story.Christmas Can Be Happy
“Happy Christmas” is a wonderful salutation. This greeting in many places has now been deemed to be politically incorrect and many Civil servants in the western world are mandated to use the phrase “Happy Holidays” instead. Substituting the politically correct phrase, “Happy Holidays” as an alternative to “Happy (or Merry) Christmas”, could be likened to Scrooge, who in the novel “A Christmas Carol” says “Bah humbug” to Christmas.Christmas Sermon Outlines – How They Can Help You Prepare Your Sunday Morning Message
Christmas Sermon Outlines are great when you are trying to decide what you are going to preach on Sunday mornings leading up to your Christmas Eve service. There may be some pastors who don’t understand why you would want to use a previously written outline for your sermon, but there are many ways you can use an outline to help develop your own message that is tailored for your congregation.Religion Vs Occult
I have always noticed that there was supposed to be a separation of church and state. Well, if religion is not allowed in school then why is Wicca or witchcraft being allowed in schools in the form of a fiction book. Children are being forced to read these witch craft books. I remember in grade school that one of the parents made their child leave the room when we read “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.” by C.S. Lewis. The witch was always the antagonist, the villain, the bad guy.I’M A Victim! – Exploring Victimhood
For many people this is a very sensitive subject. In today’s world, as in past generations, many people have suffered abuse of various kinds – some very serious – that has left deep emotional scars. Some abuse has been brazenly perverse, wicked, degrading and humiliating. As a result those who have suffered feel their lives have been spoiled, even ruined, with little hope of ever being able to escape from the haunting memories, the flash-backs, the inferiority and bleak desperation. This article offers a modest summary, in which my shallow descriptions will not do justice to your own situation.Commitment to God
Commitment to God is the personal act of binding all aspects of our individual existence to a transcendent entity. Irrespective of the nature of a particular religion, expressing belief, or going through the motions of various practices and rituals might fulfill a social obligation and shield a person from censure, but it is not a sufficient indicator of commitment to God.
