THE ISIS REALITY

Despite claims to the contrary, the danger from ISIS may not be over….or even fading. The UK’s Daily Mail reveals that the terror group “has DOUBLED the land it controls in just a few months despite more than 800 coalition airstrikes.” It now controls about one-third of Syrian territory.[i] [You may have a different impression if you listened to the President’s State of the Union address.] Then there’s this from “Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western reporter to embed with Islamic State fighters and not be killed.” He reported that while he was there “hundreds of new enthusiastic fighters are arriving. There is an incredible enthusiasm that I have never seen in any other war zones I have been to.” And their openly stated goal was mass genocide. “They were talking about [killing] hundreds of millions. They were enthusiastic about it.”[ii] [i] Revealed - how the threat of ISIS is spreading, Daily Mail (UK), January 17, 2015 [ii]GERMAN EMBED REPORTER: ISIS PLANS ON KILLING ‘HUNDREDS ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART XVII

In our last issue we wrote about the revelations of Clergy Response Teams working with the government to implement martial law. We talked about FEMA Camps and affirmations from members of the US military that they were being trained to implement military control under the possible future control of UN commanders. Then we reported on a project of all 16 US intelligence agencies that was predicting a soon-coming collapse of the American economy and “The fall of the dollar as the global reserve currency.” We noted how it was Dr Carroll Quigley in his 1966 work: In Tragedy and Hope, that spelled out the reason for all that is about to happen.   “The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” [i] And thus the stage is set for our next installment.  A NECESSARY DECLINE Something extraordinary has ...

JOURNEY TO FAITH – PART I

The Verdict of Reason Why do you believe? Or perhaps the question should be: Why don’t you believe? The question of ‘Faith,’ of ‘Worldview,’ of true ‘Belief,’ is the most essential question faced by every human being who has ever lived and reached the age of reason. It starts with the simple – but not very easy question: Does God exist? If He does: Who is He?   As a Christian I believe that the answer is plain and that it is revealed in the Bible. But this is no leap in the dark; no exercise in blind and unreasoned faith. Anyone who has taken the time to study the Bible realizes that it is a book of truth claims. History, prophecy, moral law and miraculous testimony all laid out and ready to be tested. Claiming to be the very Word of God it sets a high standard and begs to be challenged.  In this series we will set out the evidence – and it is ample for both the existence of God and most specifically for the Christian notion of who God really is. In testing the evidence, we will ... [More]

The CIA’s PROPHECY

Shortly following 9/11, the CIA was tasked with assembling a task force to investigate Wall Street activity that preceded and may have warned of the attack. They found some. As detailed in Money Morning, they found: “that bets against the stocks of American and United Airlines reached dramatically heightened levels in the days before Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked the three planes that would be used in the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon.” Further investigation led them to believe they could “identify imminent threats to our national security from terrorists, rival nations, and from internal weaknesses lurking inside our economy.” In the years that followed this indeed turned out to be the case. The CIA formed something called Project Prophecy which proved its worth in August of 2006 when it uncovered the warning signs of an impending terror event. Just days after its discovery, “a plot to blow up 10 U.S. passenger jets was thwarted. And 24 Pakistani extremists were ... [More]

THE PROBLEM WITH ‘THE PROBLEM’

Have you ever heard someone say “I have trouble believing there’s a God when there’s so much evil in the world?” Interestingly… just in making that statement they acknowledge there has to be a God. Follow me here- If evil exists in the world today (and anyone would agree it does) then good must exist in the world in association. You can’t say something is evil unless you have something that is good to compare it to, right? Now if there is good and if there is evil, how is it we can distinguish between the two? That has to come from a moral law. So if there’s a moral law that allows us to recognize good from evil, then there must be a moral law giver. Here’s another question that may follow… “If there is a God, why then does He allow so much evil?” Let me offer up a condensed biblical explanation. When God created man He gave him the ability to choose good from evil. Not wanting to force us to love Him (which of course He could have, because He’s God), He lets us decide the path ... [More]
