FAITH WARS – PART I

“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)  America is a nation that has lost its way. Once founded on Christian principles and dedicated to Christ Jesus our Messiah, we have fallen away. We have embraced sin and sacrificed tens of millions of our children on the altar of convenience called choice. We now tolerate and even celebrate actions that God Himself calls “abomination.” We chase after foreign gods. And now we’ve begun to target and persecute those that would hold to the old ways; the way of Christ and the Bible. In all of this we have become no better than the Israelites who honored foreign deities rather than the One True God who delivered them from Egypt and established their hold. There is little distinction between us and those apostate Jews who burned their own children on the altars of Molech and Baal. In this series we will survey that fall….and call for our nation’s return….before it is too late. ONE NATION UNDER ALLAH ? ... [More]

REAL ISLAM – PART XII

We’ve run the full gamut in this series….and we could easily keep on going with details. But alas, it’s time to put this thing to bed. So I’ll finish off with just a few very brief comments.  SUMMING UP Islam has long claimed to be a religion of peace. Western political leaders, including George W Bush and Barack Obama hold that we all worship the same God – that Allah is the same as the Yahweh of the Bible. Muslim organizations state that they only want the same rights as other Americans. These are all lies. Yes, there are millions of peaceful Muslims; just as there are millions who self-identify as Christians, but have no clue about the Christian faith. The holy book of Islam, the Koran, calls for the slaying of unbelievers, the destruction of the Jews – and the forcible conversion of unbelievers to Islam. This is no accident. Its basis can be found in the teachings of Jesus and Mohammed; in the understandings of just who God is – and how He deals with mankind. It might be ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART VII

EMERGING PROPHECY “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:34-34) We began by examining the times we live in from Man’s point of view; breaking it down into the humanistic, the New Age view, the Islamic and New World Order perspectives. Right now we’re going through God’s plan for mankind as revealed in Biblical prophecy. We will finish our survey by studying those End Times prophecies that are in the process of being fulfilled. But in order to understand what’s to come, we need understand God’s stated purposes for the Tribulation. That’s the 7-year- period of time just before Jesus returns to judge the world. It is the time when the Antichrist will reign and rule a One-World civil and religious government. A Detour: - The Tribulation Where we are in God’s time now is right at the cusp of the End of the Age, The Tribulation, Jacob’s ... [More]

A CALL TO REPENTANCE

We’ve just celebrated another Veterans Day in the United States of America. It used to be called Armistice Day. It was the day that combat ended in the First World War. We now use it as a day to honor all our veterans. We had the pleasure of attending a service at a local Baptist Church, honoring those who have served. There were vets there from Viet Nam and Desert Storm, from Iraq and Afghanistan and Korea and a couple from World War II. And wonderful things were said; true things about why and how this country was founded. The godly principles of the Puritans and our Founding Fathers were mentioned. So was President Lincoln’s Proclamation of Prayer and Fasting of March 30, 1863. How different that time was. The America of today has become a land of selfishness. We celebrate the exercise of our free will, not knowing that as we do we embrace the values that rob us of that very freedom. That free will was never meant to be exercised outside of the guidance of God’s Word. So we tear ... [More]

REAL ISLAM – PART XI

In PART X we continued to consider the case for a Muslim Antichrist. Today we’ll summarize those arguments and look at the response from the other side. AC: MUSLIM or ROMAN ? When considering Islam, one of the key questions we must ask ourselves is: What is its role in the End Times? With so many prophecies either being fulfilled or lining up for fulfillment, we can know that we are on the edge of that culmination of prophetic history. Just the story of Israel; its rebirth and the restoration testify to that. So what is the place of Islam in the Last Days equation? Dr Joe Van Koevering has emerged as a strong apologist for the position that the Antichrist will come out of Islam. He points to Revelation 13 to build his case. In the first part of the chapter, John sees “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.” (Revelation 13:1) This is clearly a reference to the Antichrist himself. But a ... [More]
