Crowds

January 23, 2017 Leave a comment

There have been many instances of fake news in mainstream media of late.  Most of the time words are used to misrepresent reality, but pictures may also be used.

Recently the New York Times published an article comparing the sizes of the crowds attending Obama’s and Trump’s inaugurations.  The message of the Times article is that very few people supported Trump by attending the inauguration, and by inference Trump is an illegitimate president.

The Storm

December 20, 2016 Leave a comment

It was all over the Internet.  Every news outlet imaginable carried a headline that went something like this, “Biblical Storm Protects Israel.”  Many Youtube headlines proclaimed “…SENT BY GOD…”; each showed the same video of the storm.

What’s all the fuss about?  On Dec. 1, 2016, about 8 am an unusual storm appeared on the Syrian side of Israel’s border in the Golan Heights, just as Israeli soldiers were conducting routine operations on the Israeli side.  The storm, a combination of wind, dust, and rain, did not cross into Israel, but formed a stationary protective barricade against potential attackers.  This is the exact same location where Israeli soldiers had been attacked by ISIS several weeks prior.

Some people attributed the storm to an act of God.  Others simply tried to dismiss it as an “ordinary” weather phenomenon.  But it is rather strange that the storm obeyed a political boundary defined by humans, and did not cross the border fence.  Certainly one would not expect an “ordinary” storm driven by random atmospheric patterns to honor a political boundary.  Tornadoes don’t.  Hurricanes don’t.  Desert dust storms don’t.  Furthermore, storms are not stationary.  They move.  This storm did not.  Clearly this was an extraordinary storm for which no one has presented a cogent scientific explanation.

This storm started me thinking, “What was the root cause?  What happened?” Read more…

Protests?

November 27, 2016 Leave a comment

We have all heard and seen the mayhem going on in our large cities protesting Trump’s victory.  The mainstream media and Obama would have us believe that these are legitimate, spontaneous protests.  Not so.

Here are some links proving that the riots are the product of a well-funded, orchestrated campaign of intimidation and destruction against America.  Rioters are not only offered good pay ($15 per hour+), but some of the ads actually include provisions for benefits such as dental insurance!  Please do not apply…

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 3, The Fire

May 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Counter-CutIn the last essay we saw that today’s events are driven in large part by a cosmic spiritual war between God and Satan. If there is indeed such a spiritual war of cosmic proportions raging in our midst, one would expect to see some evidence of that conflict. More precisely, since God’s current offensive is pressed through The Church, evidence of this war should be most evident within The Church itself or through interactions between The Church and the world.

A Consuming Fire

One must understand the nature of something to find evidence about it.
God wages war as a consuming fire:

God is a consuming fire (Deu 4:24, 9:3, Isa 33:10-14, Heb 12:29)

Every war, but especially God’s spiritual war, rages like a forest fire. A forest fire burns furiously until extinguished or all the fuel is spent. Wars burn furiously and uncontrollably until all the fuel is spent. Read more…

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 4, Worldly Perspective

April 10, 2014 Leave a comment

This is the eleventh in a series of essays examining the Middle East situationCounter-Cut from a Biblical perspective.

In the previous posts we examined the importance of accurately understanding ancient history. We have seen the dual nature of that conflict: Spiritual as well as worldly. In the last two essays we examined the spiritual conflict in depth.

In this essay we will examine the conflict from the world’s perspective. From the worldly perspective, the Middle East conflict has two fundamental root causes:

o   Squatters’ rights
o   Family feuds.

Let us examine each briefly. Read more…

This is the tenth in a series of essays examining the Middle East situationCounter-Cut from a Biblical perspective.

In the previous post we examined the importance of accurately understanding ancient history. We have seen the dual nature of the conflict: Spiritual as well as worldly. Lastly we have concluded that The Bible provides a more reliable account of ancient history.

In this post we will examine in more depth the nature and root cause of the spiritual conflict sweeping the Middle East and the world from a Biblical perspective. Let us then start with an examination of the Biblical root cause of our very existence: The Creator God. Read more…

The Middle East: Ancient History Part 1, Background

This is the ninth in a series of essays examining the Middle East situation from a Biblical perspective.Counter-Cut

Every fall people flock to corn mazes and hay mazes that spring up throughout the countryside.  Famers create these mazes by cutting labyrinthine paths in corn that stands taller than a man, or by constructing labyrinthine walls of hay bales higher than a man.

Upon entering the maze no one can see where they have been, where they are, or where they’re going.  Navigating one’s way out of such mazes is challenging and time-consuming.  While in these mazes, do we know where we are?  Kind of, but not really.

However, if we had an accurate map of the maze and an accurate record of where we’ve been, we could know exactlywhere we are and where we’re going.  We could even plan and reliably follow a route to get out of the maze.

It is the same with history.  If we want to know what the future might hold – though we cannot see the future clearly – it is necessary to know where we started, where we’ve been, and where we are.  We can then make some reasonable projections of the future based on that knowledge.  However, the more accurately and the farther out into the future we wish to make our projections, the farther back in time we must look to maintain reasonable accuracy of prediction.
