However, presently that type of appeasement oriented leadership has been replaced. With the recent appointment of Avigdor Lieberman to the post of Israeli Defense Minister, Israel is now in a position to engage in a Mideast war if necessary. Prime Minister Netanyahu and his new Defense Minister Lieberman represent the type of conservative leadership that won't buckle under international pressures to divide the land of Israel.
Donald Trump will be the Republican candidate for president in 2016 – and evangelicals are trying to find a way to make peace with that.
The healing is set to begin on June 21 when about 500 evangelical leaders will meet with Donald Trump in New York City. Among them will be Christian apologist and radio talk-show host Dr. Alex McFarland, who says evangelicals want first of all to know Trump is a man of his word.
The violent protests that have erupted in and around Donald Trump rallies are moving undecideds to support the GOP nominee, say many experts.
"When people show up throwing bottles and waving the Mexican flag, you have had a lot of people who may have not been willing to supportTrump who see this and say the enemy of my enemy is my friend," said former Rep. Tom Davis....
As the beloved, late Jack Kelley was often fond of saying, "I think people should get raptured according to their eschatological view". Seems only fitting after all...at least the 'post-toasties' who think they can weather the storm of the 70th Week with an underground bunker and some survival gear can get their money's worth. But I fear my prayers for eschatological-justice will most likely proceed no higher than my ceiling. And much to their chagrin, all these vehemently anti-Pre-Trib Christian's are just going to have to settle for being Raptured prior to the start of the Tribulation, whether they like it or not.
The reason why so many of these other religions are winning in America is because Christianity is losing ground.
As millions of Americans turn away from the Christian faith, they are seeking to fill the spiritual voids in their hearts in other ways. If we want to change that, we need to start representing Jesus Christ much better, and we need to let our light shine much brighter than we ever have before.
Lotz, who has authored a number of books including The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, sat down with The Christian Post for an interview following her speech and elaborated on her belief that her generation will not pass before the return of Jesus Christ, and her warning to Americans that the transgender bathroom debate reveals the country is in the last stages of God's judgment.
Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol dropped a Memorial Day weekend teaser on Twitter on Sunday:
Kristol has been stressing the need for a #NeverTrump alternative for several weeks, telling CNN on May 4, "I'm not with Trump, but I'm not with her, so I'm looking for an independent candidate."
Those of us who believe there is coming a supernatural Rapture-escape from these judgments on sinful mankind are just living in fantasy land is the collective message I infer from emails and articles that increasingly assault my senses. That I, and all of you, should begin prepping with food, water, gold, silver, and finding a good bunker in which to hunker down during these upcoming days seem to me to be the things these Rapture naysayers are presenting.
But, predictably, my priorities — and more importantly, the priorities of the zoo workers and police officers on the scene — are not shared by everyone. We are living in the days of neo-paganism, where legions of depraved souls seem only capable of mustering compassion for wild beasts. As for human beings, they feel only contempt and indifference.
