  • Why God Did Not Elect Calvinists...

    The biblical usage of “election” has absolutely nothing to do with salvation contrary to the teaching of Calvinism. Calvin summarizes this foundational doctrine in his book Institutes of the Christian Religion (Book 3 chapter 21): “Of the eternal election, by which God has predestinated some to salvation, and others to destruction.” He qualifies his summary by stating: "The predestination by which God adopts some to the hope of life, and adjudges others to eternal death, no man who would be thought pious ventures simply to deny…By predestination we mean the eternal decree of God, by which he determined with himself...

    Bible prophecy may have a bad name in the light of Harold Camping's misguided date-setting, but the biggest sign of the end may have been overlooked in all the rapture hysteria of last weekend. Once again, we've seen the U.S. hit with a series of deadly superstorms following Barack Obama's pledge to return Israel to pre-1967 borders. Just days after Obama insisted Israel must give up lands it won through military victory with its enemies, some 200 people were killed by a tornado in Joplin, Mo. There's a pattern here. We saw it in Katrina, when George Bush forced Israel's...

    An 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan has hit with a ferocious tsunami. Its the largest earthquake in the history of Japan. This on the heels of the quake that just rocked Christchurch, New Zealand. Friends, I believe that these are signs of the times, without question. There are many signs of the times Jesus told us to look for, which point to His return. Jesus told us one of those signs is that there would be an increase in earthquakes. And there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great...

    QUIX: SHORT EXCERPTS ARE OFFERED IN A SORT OF EXECUTIVE SUMMARY FIRST--THEN THE ENTIRE NARRATIVE AS AVAILABLE AT SPIRITLESSONS.COM I found this to be another anointed, Biblical narrative about a very convincing Heavenly visitation--actually, as usual, to hell, too. There's an item or 3 in this one to potentially trouble the RC's and Maryolators, . . . as well as some potentially troubling things for some Calvinists, however. Read at your own risk. Those exposed to The Truth are responsible before God for what they do about and with The Truth.On the other hand, ignorance affords no eternal protection....
  • Torah codes predict, and warn about, Obama presidency (old article from 11/8/2008)

    Israel Insider ^ | 11/8/2008
    More recently, in August 2008, the scholars reported that Obama's name "intersects" with a passage in the apocalyptic book of Daniel, Chapter 7, and specifically Daniel 7:25, which speaks of the last "king" who would oppress God's people under the rubric of bringing about "change" to the world. The scholars show that the numerical equivalent of "Barack Hussein Obama" in gematria – the practice of finding the numerical value of letters and creating associations between words and phrases – is 501. In an article from August 2008, the scholars elaborate that this number is associated with the "end of days"...
  • Are you eating food sacrificed to idols?

    World Net Daily ^ | January 27, 2011 | Joe Kovacs
    When you bite into a delicious pizza, succulent sandwich or luscious lamb chops, are you possibly eating food that has been sacrificed to idols? An outspoken American pastor says yes, and he's sounding the alarm for Christians to be aware of the Islamic influence he calls "backdoor Shariah" now nibbling its way across the fruited plain. At issue, says Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in Bonney Lake, Wash., is eating food that's "halal," in other words "lawful" or "permitted" for the Muslim diet. Muslims join many Jews and some Christians in avoiding the consumption of certain animals such as...
  • Obama Is The Image Of The Beast, Human Nature. He Will Call All To Worship That Beast.

    The fickal polls show how dellusional people are when it comes to getting something for nothing. Obama offered nothing but lies and he got elected president of America. Then reality set in as Obama's socialistic policies were revealed and failed. So what does Obama do? He repackages the old Satanic lie, "Ye shall not surely die." "Everything is ok, I'm a good guy, giving you whatever you want." It appears that people love to be fooled. The image of the beast of human nature promises them everything and ignores the price we must pay for serving the prince of liars....

    Volunteer harvesters from the United States and Canada, have local Jewish vintners in Samaria, otherwise known as the West Bank, wondering if not just the grapes, but also the times - are ripening. The Hebrew prophet Isaiah predicted that close to the time of the Messiah's coming, the sons of foreigners would be their vinedressers. "Our sages have taught us that during the times of the final redemption, which we are right now in, other nations will come to help build the land of Israel, to help the Jewish nation, to fulfill all of the prophesies," said Yonatan Behar, the...
  • Nashville billboards claim Jesus will return May 21, 2011 (Harold Camping at it again)

    12/03/2010 7:19:35 AM PST · by markomalley · 44 replies
    There are 24 shopping days left till Christmas. And 171 days left until Jesus' second coming. That's the message on 40 billboards around Nashville, proclaiming May 21, 2011, as the date of the Rapture. Billboards are up in eight other U.S. cities, too. Fans of Family Radio Inc., a nationwide Christian network, paid for the billboards. Family Radio's founder, Harold Camping, predicted the May date for the Rapture. Their message is simple "He Is Coming Again" and their aim is to get unbelievers to turn around quickly. But critics say the billboards are a waste of time, one...

    Mr. Limbaugh, You have FAILED to defend the Constitution in the important matter of Obama's very questionable natural born status! On those rare occasions that you have mentioned the topic ( less than 5 total minutes) you have treated it like a joke. I am mystified that you have done this. The only consequence, Mr. Limbaugh, for directing attention to Obama's eligibility as a natural born citizen would have been a little ridicule from the mainstream Marxist media. If you fail to defend the Constitution in time of relative peace and security, only a FOOL would expect you to defend...

The following vision is probably one of the most well-known that hasever come out of my home nation of New Zealand. It is a key vision that has been acknowledged and read around the world.

Basically, it was a traditional wedding scene. The radiantly beautiful Bride had just stepped out of the Cathedral and was standing on the top...

    More and more as we get closer to the end, people want to see a time line of coming events. Questions about the order in which events will take place, the span of time between them and the likelihood of there being enough time for everything to happen in the time we have left are becoming more numerous with each passing week. As you know the Bible doesnt provide this level of specificity. But neither are we left to make unfounded predictions. There are a number of clues scattered throughout the New Testament that take much of the guess work...

    At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. (Daniel 11:40) According to Daniel 11 the End of the Age would see two Middle Eastern power blocks, which he called the King of the North and the King of the South, and both of them would challenge the anti-Christ for control of Jerusalem. Today, although they appear to be allies,...

  • To some Christian fundamentalists, the oil plume in the Gulf of Mexico heralds the apocalypse.

    Newsweek ^ | June 4th, 2010
    A growing conversation among Christian fundamentalists asks the question that may have been inevitable: is the oil spill in the gulf a sign of the coming apocalypse? About 60 million white evangelicals live in America, and about one third of them believe that the world will end in their lifetime, according to the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. Broadly speaking, these Christians subscribe to a theology called "premillennial dispensationalism." In this world view, they are warriors on the side of God: a cosmic battleculminating in apocalypse, judgment, and, finally, the reign of Jesus in a new...

    Obama has been cast down into our midst. He represents the unholy trinity of the antichrist. He reveals the hate, the lies and the death. That unholy trinity now sits in dominion of the earthly seat of power in America. Obama is Americas' commander in chief and that commander is a slave of Satan. What more tribulation can we imagine than to have the heart that hates, the mind that lies and the body that decays, in control of America? Do we not see a growing chorus of plagues at hand? How much is required to get the attention of...

    Today, as the global events and the godless out workings of base (corrupt) man continue at a breakneck speed, the stage is being set for the horrific events on the horizon called The Tribulation Period, or The Day of the Lord (Matt. 24:21-22). The entire world - including America - will be absolutely oblivious to the realities and dire consequences of events to unfold during that time. Ever since the civilization of Babel (Gen. 11:1-9), the world has basically lived in a godless delusion of apathy and subjective narcissism. They have willfully rejected the eternal ordinances of Almighty God and...

    The remains of Noah's Ark have been discovered 13,000ft up a Turkish mountain, it has been claimed. A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say they have found wooden remains on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. They claim carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah's Ark Ministries International research team, said: "It's not 100 per cent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it." He said the structure contained several compartments,...

    The Conservative movement of today basically consists of individuals with various personal beliefs (both religious and ideological), but conservatism in general sadly rejects outright the absolute authority of the Bible, the Holy Word of Almighty God. It is a bestselling book widely reverenced, but too many Conservatives reject its Divine authority and preeminence. These Subjective Conservatives cannot see out of this box called time, and thus they are oblivious to the realities of Holy Scripture truth. This includes the coming establishment of the literal Kingdom of Almighty God on earth, as well as their own eternity destiny (John 3:3-5; Romans...

I can't help but think with the nuke treaty, this plane crash, they way Obama is turning his back on Israel, etc. that we are on the precepise of something HUGE and that it may be unfolding very close to what Rosenberg wrote. Rosenberg is not the authority, God's word is, but I really feel God has given him the gift to take scripture and current events and tie them...
