  • Apocalypse now: Poll shows 1 in 7 thinks end of world is near

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 05/02/2012
    Nearly 15 percent of people worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime, and 10 percent think the Mayan calendar could signify that it will happen this year, according to a new poll. The end of the Mayan calendar — which spans about 5,125 years — on Dec. 21 has sparked interpretations and suggestions that it marks the end of the world. "Whether they think it will come to an end through the hands of God or a natural disaster or a political event, whatever the reason, 1 in 7 thinks the end of the world is coming," said...
  • Churches May Be Forced to Rent Their Facilities to Gay Couples

    Christian Post ^ | 04/25/2012 | Jeff Schapiro
    The city of Hutchinson, Kan., is mulling over a proposed law that would force some churches in the community, regardless of their religious convictions, to rent their church halls to gay couples for events. The proposal came about after the Kansas Equality Coalition encouraged the Hutchinson City Council to add gender identity and sexual orientation to the city's human relations code. The law would make it illegal for churches that rent their facilities to the public to prevent anyone from renting their facility based on sexual orientation or gender identity. "If a church has a parish hall that they rent...
  • Iraq Rebuilding Its Military, Even as They Rebuild Babylon: Prophetic Significance?

    BibleProphecyBlog.com ^ | April 13, 2012 | Joel C. Rosenberg
    Bible prophecy indicates that in the End Times, the nation we know today as the Republic of Iraq—known variously in Scripture as Babel, Babylon, Babylonia, Mesopotamia and Shinar—will emerge as the global center of wealth, power and terrible evil. Eventually Iraq will pose a direct and existential threat to the State of Israel, particularly during the Tribulation. Since the fall of Saddam Hussein and his regime in 2003, Iraq has not been a regional threat, much less a danger to Israel. Some have assumed, therefore, that Iraq would no longer play a major role in Middle Eastern or global affairs...
  • The Marching Rage to Armageddon!

    The Ignorant Fishermen.com ^ | 4/6/12 | DJP, I.F.
    Through out this week we have heard and seen the coverage of the riots which have been taking place in England. As these lawless individuals rage against authorities and powers, they are totally oblivious to the demonic hypnotic state of mind which they possess (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). They are held prisoners of themselves from their own delusional subjective narcissistic world of victim status and burning rage. These have reaped their OWN lawless doings and need a scapegoat to destroy and to avenge their own self afflicted adversities (Gal. 6:7). The State - who is almighty god to them -...

    StayCatholic.com ^ | 2001 | Sebastian R. Fama
     The Raptureby Sebastian R. Fama"The Rapture" is a term that is used by Bible Christians to describe the belief that at some point in time Jesus will come, and all true believers will literally rise up and meet Him in the air and be whisked away to heaven. All non-believers will remain on the earth to be dealt with later. The Catholic Church teaches that Jesus will come and judge the living and the dead. The righteous will be saved and the unrighteous will suffer eternal damnation. No one will be left on the earth. Belief in such a rapture...
  • Not 2012 But 2017!

    Blogspot: God and Politics ^ | March 9, 2012 | Rev. Joseph Dwight
    INTRODUCTION Much has been written about the year 2012. But for believers, in particular Catholics, just as the Blessed Virgin Mary had a very essential God-given role in the first coming of the Son of God, so too, as Saint Louis de Montfort and other saints tell us, Mary, the Mother of God, will have a very important role in the preparation for the second coming of Christ. The Mother of God appeared at Fatima, confirmed by great signs, during the year 1917. EXACTLY 33 YEARS TO THE DAY prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima (October...
  • Interesting Times?...Actually, the End Times

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.( 2 Timothy 3:1-5)There is a Chinese ‘blessing’, the kind you confer upon an adversary, in which you wish him or her ,”May you live in interesting times”. We certainly do, don’t...
  • Churches adopt new Ten Commandments

    The Telegraph ^ | 3/5/2012 | Hannah Furness
    Hundreds of churches across the country are now preaching an updated version of the Ten Commandments, rewritten to reflect modern values. The religious rules, which Christians believe were etched onto tablets by God and given to Moses, have been modified to use up-to-date language and principles. Inspired by last year’s riots, the new vows include “manage your anger”, “know God” and “catch your breath” and are understood to be used in more than 600 churches in Britain. The original “thou shalt not steal” has become “prosper with a clear conscience”, and the lengthy “thou shalt not take the name of...

  • Christ at an Israeli Checkpoint

    FrontPage Magazine ^ | February 20, 2012 | Mark D. Tooley
    The Evangelical Left is hosting a “Christ at the Checkpoint” jamboree at the birthplace of Jesus Christ to identify the Savior with Palestinian liberation. This anti-Israeli mobilization will include leading evangelicals from the U.S. “We are not accusing the Israeli military of putting Jesus at a checkpoint,” insists one disingenuous spokesman, who complains that “some” critics will incomprehensibly interpret it that way. “This is a conference about empowering the Palestinian church.” If so, then why is the conference not less provocatively titled? Palestinian politicians are often accused of speaking sweetly about peace and co-existence in English to Western audiences but...

    For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them...
  • Not Worthy To Be Compared...

    For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.(Romans 8:18)And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.(John 11:43)Being a Christian in this fallen world is a lot like the experience of Lazarus, in John chapter 11. He had died and was already buried, when Jesus commanded that his tomb be opened, so that He could call Lazarus back from the grave! “Lazarus, come forth!”Suddenly the onlookers are amazed, for there in the mouth of the tomb stood...
  • Catholic League Poised To Go To War With Obama Over Mandatory Birth Control Payments

    CBS News ^ | February 6, 2012 11:00 PM
    Catholic leaders upped the ante Monday, threatening to challenge the Obama administration over a provision of the new health care law that would require all employers, including religious institutions, to pay for birth control. As CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reports, it could affect the presidential elections. Catholic leaders are furious and determined to harness the voting power of the nation’s 70 million Catholic voters to stop a provision of President Barack Obama’s new heath car reform bill that will force Catholic schools, hospitals and charities to buy birth control pills, abortion-producing drugs and sterilization coverage for their employees. “Never before,...

    If you’ve learned anything from Super Bowl XLVI so far, it’s that driving a Ford will get you killed when the apocalypse comes. Unsurprisingly, this spot from Chevy is already generating the most controversy. In it, a man drives through a post-apocalyptic landscape and finds the only survivors are fellow Chevy drivers. Their friend, sadly, drove a Ford and is dead.
  • The Fate of The Nations...Psalm 9 pt 6

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.(Psalm 9 :17-20)Many people miss the full import of the Psalms of the Bible, because they limit their understanding of them to being divine poetry, or as wisdom literature. Some correctly go further and realize that the...
  • The Nations have Dug a Pit...Psalm 9 pt 5

    The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. (Psalm 9:14-15)The ninth Psalm is an eschatological revelation. The Psalmist ,by the Holy Spirit celebrates the coming of the LORD . At his Arrival, the united international enemies of Israel fall, they are turned back and routed! They had besieged her in their fury, but God rebukes them,”putting out their name” forever! The LORD comes...

    Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.(Psalm 9:13-14)Psalm 9 is an eschatological psalm. It describes the coming of the Lord to this earth to deliver a besieged people, Israel, surrounded by menacing enemies on the verge of destroying her. The Psalmist reveals that Israel’s enemies will be routed by the very presence of the Lord, the perousia spoken...
  • Psalm 9 pt 4 He Will Make Inquisition For Blood....

    Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings. When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.(Psalm 9:11-12)The message of Psalm 9, is the coming of the Lord. He comes to deliver Israel from the enemies who besiege her in the last days. He comes to Judge the world in righteousness. He comes to put an end to the wanton destruction of the enemy. Here we see another of the reasons the Lord comes again, He comes as the judge to to make inquisition for...
  • Psalm 9 pt 1 The Return Of The King

    The Psalms of the Bible are full of prophecy. A major theme of many of the Psalms is that of the return of the King, Messiah, and his sufferings and glory. The prophecies of the Psalms are eschatological also, describing in great detail the last great conflict of Israel, and of the world conditions at the time of the second coming of Christ. The ninth Psalm is an example of this. I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing...
