The month of September, 2015, holds a few key elements that will change the world forever. Iran has already indicated that they have no intention of keeping their commitment to cease the building of nuclear material that can be used to make weapons to destroy Israel.
“Iran does not plan to issue permission for the [International Atomic Energy Agency] to inspect every site,” Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan told Al Mayadeen News Wednesday. “U.S. officials make boastful remarks and imagine that they can impose anything on the Iranian nation because they lack a proper knowledge of the Iranian nation.”

Without the possibility of a feasible agreement between the United States and other key nations; to reduce or eliminate Iran’s capacity to produce weapons of nuclear capacity, Israel is left dangerously vulnerable.
It is clear that Israel has no other choice but to destroy Iran’s nuclear capacity, now, before the threat grows into action by Iran. If the leaders of the Iranian government care nothing for the opinions of the U.S., before they have completed their building of material that will make a nuclear weapon possible, it is certain they will not be afraid to use those weapons against Israel once they are ready.
Israel cannot allow Iran to possess a weapon that will decimate their nation. What will Israel do? Continue reading “Strategic September: Israel, Iran and The Coming Tribulation”
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 Continue reading “When America Abandons God: The Signs And The Consequences”
Many people mistakenly assume by the present inaction of God to judge their sins that God’s love will not allow Him to condemn them to hell.
God is the embodiment of love. He is the reason that love exists at all. He is also a God of justice and He cannot permit sin to go unpunished forever (see Prophecy 208). The Lord has appointed a time in which He will judge every thought, word, and deed of all people. Those who have placed themselves under the saving power of Jesus sacrifice will be found not guilty. Those who stubbornly refuse to submit their lives to Jesus and rest their sins squarely on His sacrifice, will bear the penalty for those sins themselves.
To bow the knee is an absolute requirement
Since the cross, where Jesus made atonement for the sins of the whole world, the forgiveness of sin and a full pardon from God for all past wrongs is available to anyone who willingly comes to God. In order to receive His forgiveness—first, the knee must bow to Jesus as Lord, then an acknowledgement is made that He is the only Savior. Bowing of the knee and the heart are two necessary fundamentals of true repentance. God will accept nothing less than the absolute surrender of the life that He is going to save. The bowing of the knee is seen as the visual evidence that the heart has been humbled and is repentant and ready to submit to Jesus’ authority. Without repentance and a submission to Jesus as Savior and Lord, there can be no forgiveness of sin or eternal life. Continue reading “How, Why, and When: The Judgement of God (Past and Future)”
The world has been stunned in recent months by the great increase of volcanic activity–all over the earth in Ecuador, Hawaii, Iceland, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines and Papau New Guinea. Many are reminded of a description found in the book of Revelation where “A mountain burning with fire,” is said to be the second of the Trumpet judgements of God.
Revelation 8:8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.
Is there a link between an increase in natural disasters and the events described in the Bible? Throughout the Hebrew Scriptures there are examples given in the history of the earth where the Lord has brought disaster upon the residents of our planet for the express purpose of judgement.
Genesis 6:5,7 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. So the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air.
