    The Fire Next Time – A Homily for the Second Sunday of Advent Msgr. Charles Pope • December 9, 2017 • The second reading for Sunday Mass speaks to us of “the fire next time” and reminds us of the need to be ready for the coming of the Lord. In this homily I will focus on that reading, in which St. Peter reminds us of the passing that will come for us all one day.Because Advent is a time to prepare, through prayer and repentance, we do well to heed this sacred teaching and warning. It is echoed...

    The Second Coming and Its Stages Msgr. Charles Pope • December 7, 2017 • During Advent, as we continue to meditate on the Parousia (the Second Coming), we do well to allow our imaginations to be engaged in contemplating the glory that awaits those who are faithful, to meditate on the joy and ecstasy of the culmination of all things!We must soberly admit our need to be ready by God’s grace, but if we are, what glories await us! The “great and terrible day of the Lord” will indeed be great for those who have allowed the Lord to...

    A Christian's Worldview ^ | December 6, 2007 | Chuck Ness
    Many believe that Trump is a type of Cyrus. Chosen by God for this time in our history to do His bidding. For those who have no clue as to who Cyrus was, he became King of the Persian empire in 559 BC. About 150 years before he became king, the prophet Isaiah wrote that a man named Cyrus would come along and assist God's people in rebuilding Jerusalem and the Temple. Mind you, this was about 70 years before the Temple and the city would be destroyed and the citizens taken away in captivity. I can imagine that...
  • How the Arabian Shakeup might Fit in Prophecy

    And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling...
  • The Persecution of the Tremblers...Isaiah 66 pt 5

    Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. (Isaiah 66:5)Isaiah predicted that the larger, more staid and respectable congregation, whose religion was active, busy and very aggressive, but which wasn’t individually spiritually searching, would inevitably persecute those whose religion was acceptable to God, approved of the Holy Ghost. Your Brethren hated You… Why did they hate them? It is an age old Biblical pattern which...
  • They Tremble AT His Word...Isaiah 66 pt 4

    And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the Lord. And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me...
  • Believers in The Rapture (shouldn't fight about it)...

    But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore...
  • The True Remnant of God...Isaiah 66 pt 3

    Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.(Isaiah 66:1-2)The LORD addresses his congregation,in Isaiah 66. He speaks to them as a whole people, but within his address, he speaks to them as a duality, there are...

    A Sermon from Isaiah 66 Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a...
  • Give non-binary artists the credit they deserve

    It’s no secret that Hollywood has not been inclusive to anyone outside of the cisgendered, straight, white description. Thankfully, many consumer have made strides to change this, giving exposure to people of color and LGBT directors, producers, writers, artists and musicians. Yet nonbinary and transgender people are still being left out. ... Hollywood has a history of white-washing and cis-washing movies and media.
  • Frogs Out Of Their Mouths...Euphrates 10

    And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God...
  • Mosul and Jonah...Euphrates pt 8

    Iraq used to be known as Mesopotamia, “the land between two rivers”, because of the very fertile plain between the Euphrates and the Tigris river. The Tigris river (often called the Hiddekel river in the Bible), is the site of the ancient capitol city of the Assyrian empire, Ninevah. Ninevah was also the city which the prophet Jonah attempted to avoid going to, though he was sent there by God, to preach repentance to the cruel and wicked Assyrians. When he did finally come to Ninevah, Jonah preached a very uninspiring message, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!...

    Amir starts at about the 32-minute mark. A passionate plea to be ready, and to be sure we are found doing God's work, with the usual dose of news and facts you don't hear anywhere else, and a better understanding of recent history in the Middle East. Some thoughts about America: Why is it not mentioned in prophecy? There are 4 possible causes of America's absence from the stage at the time of the Ezekiel 38 war. The theme of North Korea as smokescreen continued, with more explanation. Don't let your heart be troubled!

    Omega Letter ^ | 9/18/17 | Pete Garcia
    In early 1914, though, it seemed almost impossible that Britain and France would go to war with Germany to defend Russia against Austria-Hungary over a dispute with Serbia. Yet by June 28, war moved straight from impossible to inevitable — without ever passing through improbable. Four years later, 10 million people had died. (From World War One: First war was impossible, then inevitable; Anatole Kaletsky) Although I’ve used this quote in the past, I’ve found myself drawn to it again due to its precise accuracy describing the seemingly incredible and often unpredictable nature of geopolitics. Prior to World War I,...

    Man who predicted world will end on Sept. 23 says nevermind By Fox News September 22, 2017 | 4:38pm he end is still nigh — just not as nigh as it was earlier this week, a Doomsday writer says. David Meade, who claimed the world is ending Saturday when a mysterious planet collides with Earth, is now backtracking on the calamitous claim. Meade said the world won’t end on September 23 after all, but instead, Saturday will only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events to occur over several weeks. “The world is not ending, but the world...
  • Biblical prophecy claims the world will end on Sept. 23, Christian numerologists claim

    A Christian numerologist claims that the world will end next Saturday when a planet will, supposedly, collide with Earth. According to Christian numerologist David Meade, verses in Luke 21:25 to 26 are the sign that recent events, such as the recent solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey, are signs of the apocalypse. The verses read: “25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies...

    Fox News. com ^ | September 22, 2017 | Billy Hallowell
    The Bible is more than clear in its theological claim that Jesus Christ will return to Earth at an undisclosed, future time. In fact, that belief is a central hallmark of the Christian faith. And the latter point about the timing is essential to highlight, as scripture makes it clear that no one knows exactly when the so-called “second coming” will unfold. Yet, once again, here we are with some Christians setting a specific date — September 23, 2017 — for the purported fulfillment of certain prophetic signs or events. It seems bizarre, considering that the Bible repeatedly and clearly...
