When you reduce the Israeli-Palestinian issue down to the ridiculous, you will find it's root cause. The cause is the lie about ownership and what I will call "the Palestinian lie" in particular.
The premise of the Palestinian lie is quite simple: Tell a lie often enough and people will believe it. That strategy has worked......and worked so well that it is hard to find a person who will ask three fundamental questions:
The rest of us find ourselves being squeezed by increasing pain and distress. In some ways, that's a good sign! It means we're very, very close to the end of this Age of Grace. Almighty God is about to manifest Himself in a most impressive show of power to the inhabitants of this world. Although we who are the Bride of Christ are under great pressure at the moment, we're not alone. The planet and critters are in distress just as we are.
While some of the concern over Jade Helm might be misguided, none of it has occurred in a vacuum. It arises from more than six years of an administration that has demonstrated an overt willingness to squander the trust of millions of Americans in pursuit of its agenda—by any means necessary. Americans would much prefer to see the military training to defend the homeland against ISIS rather than engage in insulting exercises against the "hostile" heartland of liberty.
Sixteen-year-old Rifqa Bary made international headlines in 2009 when, newly baptized as a Christian and fearing her Muslim parents' reaction, she ran away from her Ohio home and took refuge with a pastor in Florida.
Fearing a so-called honor killing, a controversial practice in some Muslim communities which calls on the family of someone who has in some way "dishonored" her family name or Islam itself—
Did he or didn't he say it? There's been a media kerfuffle about what Pope Francis did or didn't say about Mahmoud Abbas. Did the pope really call him an angel of peace or did he admonish him to be the angel of peace? Or was it both?
Some now insist it was the latter. One irony is that earlier, alleged misrepresentations of what the pope said came from media outlets which I consider to be liberal and somewhat biased. I suppose there's some lesson there for all of us.
The timing of the Rapture, also called the "blessed hope" in Titus 2:13, will be as a thief in the night to those not watching, but the "times and seasons" of the Rapture will not be a surprise to those who are looking for His return (1 Thessalonians 5:4, Matthew 25:1-13). Christ told His apostles, as recorded in Acts 1:6-7, that it was not for them "...to know the times or the seasons..." for the restoration of the kingdom to Israel. Understanding the mystery of "the times and seasons" of the kingdom's restoration was not for the apostles to know but was to be reserved for a future generation.
The pair, both in their 70s, have been together for 50 years and registered in New York City as domestic partners in 1994. But when they moved to Pennsylvania, they discovered their domestic partnership wasn't recognized, and legalized same-sex marriage was nowhere on the horizon.
"So the birth pains, the signs that Jesus gives, whether it is in the environmental world or national world, the wars, or the persecution of Christians, the persecution of Jews, when we see that ratcheting up and increasing in frequency and in intensity in the same generation that sees the Gospel being preached to the whole world and Israel reborn as a nation, that's the generation that is the last," Lotz stated.
"My goal is to destroy Christianity as a world religion and be a recatalyst for the movement of Jesus Christ," McManus, author of a new book called The Barbarian Way, said in a telephone interview. "Some people are upset with me because it sounds like I'm anti-Christian. I think they might be right."—Erwin McManus
"Many Christians use "Breath Prayers" throughout their day. You choose a brief sentence, or a simple phrase that can be repeated to Jesus in one breath." —Rick Warren
LifeNews has repeatedly chronicled cases of people who were prematurely declared dead or said to be in supposedly persistent vegetative states who ultimately recovered. We have also covered miraculous cases where an act of God appears to be the only reason or only answer as to why a patient has recovered.
