Astronomical Evidence During the Crucifixion of Jesus

There were stunning and supernatural forces that were present during the crucifixion of Jesus which existed without a natural cause. At no time in the history of the man has darkness overtaken the earth in the middle of the day, apart from a solar eclipse. During the crucifixion of Jesus, a profound event occurred that many attributed to the moon obscuring the sun’s light upon the earth. Unknown to the observers of this spectacle was the fact that during the particular phase that the moon, a solar eclipse was not possible. How could it become dark at noon and remain that way for three hours—specifically during the time that Jesus was on the cross, dying for the sins of the world? When we investigate the records that were written during that time, we find that this darkness was chronicled by several sources. (more…)

As the Supreme Court of the United States has made gay marriage the law of the land in the United States, there will certainly be many who fight against the Christian stance in opposition to gay marriage.

Those who now have the right to marry, under law, should remember that the Constitution also gives Christians and others, the right to speak out freely, against gay marriage.  (more…)

One of the stunning developments that has occurred in the United States during the past 60 years, is the movement of our citizens away from God and the Bible.

After decades of eroding morality and a rise in secular humanism, we no longer possess the faith of our forefathers. Beginning in the fifties, the Christian church ceased from teaching its members the principles of the Bible. This resulted in a nation of individuals who did not know what God has said, nor what He requires. This famine of God’s word produced an eroding national morality, and the acceptance of abhorrent lifestyles that were formerly considered illegal or perverse. Under the guise of equal rights, an onslaught of court cases, sought legal recourse to redefine marriage and what America considers normal in sexual relationships.

During this same period, Colleges and Universities began to teach evolution as the reason for all life, resulting in the exclusion of God from government and educational institutions.

As same-sex relationships became acceptable to the American people, the insistence for more rights, to a wider group of alternative lifestyle and gender identities, has also increased. In April of 2016, a 16 year old North Carolina student, who was born a female but identifies as a male, sued the Gloucester County School Board that had created a policy the prohibited any student from using a restroom that is contrary to their biological sex. On April 19, 2016, a federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, gave permission for this case to go forward as a sexual discrimination lawsuit against the school board. According to the federal court, the basis of the case is Title IX of the Federal law that prohibits sex discrimination at schools that receive federal funding.

We are seeing an ever increasing movement by the LGBT advocates to demand that every phase of American culture; government, churches, business, and education, accept every abhorrent demand that is made to accommodate their chosen lifestyles. This movement towards a national acceptance of gays and lesbians as normal and acceptable in every phase of American society, began in 1962 (more…)


I have been working with some data the past few days that looks to be a part of an event somewhere in the world, of profound importance. I am not certain at yet what the event will be. It appears to concern the United State or Israel, or perhaps both.

Certain events that have taken place in the world this year have given an indication that the Lord is about to do something that will be the greatest supernatural event of our lifetime. The certainty of this happening before the end of September is 100 percent. Please pray for me as I try to assemble all the data and publish an article tomorrow.

See the Article: “When America Abandons God: The Signs And The Consequences

Update: July 1, 2015.

Could it be that the fourth blood moon on September this year, will mean the arrival of the Seven Year Tribulation?

Crucifixion is described as one of the most horrific ways to put a man to death. Reserved for only the worst of criminals, what had Jesus done that warranted such vicious treatment?

As we read the accounts of His life in the four gospels, we see a man who is full of love and compassion. Every sick person who came to Jesus—He healed. Every hurting man or woman, Jesus loved and encouraged. Every lost sinner who came to Him in sorrow for their sins, Jesus forgave and bestowed a new life.

Jesus stood against injustice, religious hypocrisy, and pretentiousness by those who claim to know God. When the woman at the well sought to turn the discussion to religion, Jesus turned her back to a relationship with God.

Everything that Jesus did, was good, righteous, and Holy.

The testimony of those who had been with Him every day of His three and one-half year ministry, described Him as perfect and without sin (Prophecy 21). None of the people from Nazareth came to Jerusalem when Jesus proclaimed Himself as the Messiah and opposed Him on grounds that He was a sinful man. Every person who listened to Jesus and watched the way that He treated people was struck by His grace.

This was no ordinary man, this was no sinner, this was not a man who deserved to die by crucifixion.

If a concise search is made to discover the reasons why people do not believe in God, it quickly becomes evident that every point of objection made by the atheist, is easily overcome with logic and reason. As I read through the following: “The Top 10 Reasons I Don’t Believe in God” by Greta Christina, it became clear that the author is simply making affirmation regarding things that she has little or no knowledge of.

It is common in life for persons to make inaccurate or incorrect statements about persons or matters to which they have very little knowledge.

These arguments are based largely on speculation and conjecture, rather than actual facts. It appears that this author is greatly misinformed about the subject that she attempts to write about as an instant expert. It is common amongst the atheists to regurgitate the statements of others before them, who were also in error regarding their statements. As an object lesson in how opaque the arguments against the existence of God are, I will give answers these to objections. In these responses I will demonstrate precisely how the atheist and skeptic consistently fail to demonstrate a compelling argument against the existence of God.

The following 10 objections to God are made by author, Greta Christina, in her book: But “Does God exist?” (more…)

Over the course of many years, I have often been asked why Christianity; following Jesus, is different from all other religions of the world. First, we must understand that religion is a creation of man in his attempt to make himself acceptable to God. In reality, the Bible teaches that no person can do anything that would cause God to accept us—except believe what He has said.

The basis for true salvation is in a completed work of God, not in man’s performance or attempts at being religious.

In all of the religions of the world, except Biblical Christianity, a person must keep a a set of rules in order to be acceptable. The Bible teaches that we cannot do anything to cause God to love us; He already does. The distance between us and God is because of our sin. There is nothing that we can do to remove our sins, or make ourselves better. If we will be acceptable to God, He must do something to change our situation. (more…)

There has been some confusion over the Old Testament book of Leviticus, regarding certain provisions in the law of God which calls for death in specific matters of personal conduct. Does the Bible require the death of an individaul who practices adultery, fornication, homosexuality, or lesbianism, today?

In any attempt at understanding the Bible, we should first look at:

  1. Who the particular text is addressed to?
  2. What is the context?
  3. When was it written?

We notice that Leviticus chapter 20 is written specifically to: “the children of Israel.” Therefore, we cannot take this verse and universally apply it to the Christian church today. Nor can we apply it to the world, who are not addressed by this command.

Leviticus 20:1-2  1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Again, you shall say to the children of Israel:

This is not to say that God does not require all people to conduct themselves in purity in matters concerning their bodies. The Bible is very clear that God did not creates us for immorality, but instead to be a people of virtue. (more…)

The recent news of nine people killed in South Carolina, and the immediate forgiveness of Dylan Roof, by the families of those who lost their loved one’s, is extraordinary, indeed.

Some people have asked how a person could be that good that they could forgive the horrendeous acts of someone so vicious.

When Jesus came into the world, His message was simple: God is ready to forgive anyone, of any sin. Jesus is described by the New Testament as God, who looked upon the suffering of human beings in this world and was compelled to do something. He determined to leave heaven, take the body of a man and become one of us, so that He might be able to die for us and all of our sins. When Jesus died, He paid for the sins of every person, for all time.

Jesus said if we will come to Him in sincere repentance for our sins and ask Him for forgiveness, He will remove all our sins and make us perfect in the sight of God. Why He would be willing to suffer such a horrible death for sinners, He simply loves us.

Because we understand how much we have been forgiven, we are compelled—by the love of Christ, to forgive those who have hurt, or offended us. Even to the degree that a person has taken the life of a dear loved one, we must forgive, because we have been forgiven so much. (more…)

Jesus As A Matter Of History

No credible Biblical scholar today believes that Jesus was not a real person of history. The evidence for His existence is so overwhelming, that to deny Jesus lived in Galilee at the time depicted by the New Testament would place any writer in a classification of incompetency.[1]

All opposition to the existence of Jesus has now been refuted; and the fact that He lived and conducted Himself in the events described by the four Gospels of the New Testament, is incontrovertible.

A recent publication by Richard Carrier, entitled: “On the Historicity of Jesus,” fabricates a new theory that the Jesus who is alleged to have existed in the New Testament, was a sort of mystical being—not a physical entity.

This is similar to the atheist—theoretical physicists of late, who cannot explain the fine-tuning of our universe by any naturalistic cause. In an attempt to remove any possibility that an intelligent Being is responsible for the Cosmos, the newest hypothesis—described as the, “multiverse,” designates our universe as one of an infinite number of other parallel universes (which no one can see). If we have an unlimited number of universes, then we would certainly expect to find at least one like ours that is finely tuned for life.

Although cosmologists do not have the ability to see beyond our own universe to test this theory, nevertheless, this has become the newest explanation for why the universe appears to be designed for life. This allows the atheist to make the assertion that God is not necessary as the source of our universe, since in their view, it came into existence by itself.[2]

Much like the multiverse, which no one can see, Richard Carrier also creates an ancient mystical Jesus, which no one could see, who was simply a figment of the imagination.

This premise ignores the vast evidence that exists from the Jewish Talmud. The ancient scribes of Israel who chronicled Jesus in their writings, had no interest in preserving any historical information about Him, nor Christianity. The Jews who recorded their commentary about Jesus in the Talmud, regarded Him and His followers as the latest of many cult religions of their day. These leaders of Israel had no desire to document the existence of Jesus, His crucifixion, nor those who followed Him—yet this is precisely what they accomplished by their adversarial comments regarding His arrest and execution. These records were written during the period of history in which Jesus is reported to have been in Israel, as described by the narrative of the New Testament scriptures.[3]

Regardless of how many inferences Richard Carrier makes in his book that the historical Jesus is a fabrication, we must understand that this publication exists—exclusively as a result of a large financial grant from an atheist organization. It should be obvious to those who read Mr. Carrier’s book, that his entire purpose for writing—to deny the historicity of Jesus, was because he was paid to refute the existence of Jesus Christ.[4]

In essence, Richard Carrier is a mercenary for the atheist cause, not a literary or historical scholar who has followed the evidence to a credible conclusion. The facts are, Mr. Carrier cannot refute the certainty of recorded history. Both the Jews and the Romans would rather that Jesus had not existed, yet they found themselves recording many of the events of His life and death—in their preserved records of history. The evidence of antiquity demands that Jesus existed as a real person in Palestine during the period of history in which the New Testament describes Him.

Most people are intelligent enough to understand that a person who has already determined what the end result will be, before he begins to write—cannot be objective in his conclusions.
