  • The Grapes Of Wrath...Isiah 63 pt 5

    Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of...
  • The Morphing Of Turkey... Ezekiel 38 pt 3

    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 swords Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them...
  • The Psychology of godlessness... Romans series

    “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…” (Romans 1:18)The Gospel doesn’t begin with man and his need for salvation, it begins with God, His Glory and His wrath against sin. The apostle tells us that the wrath of God; that is His ceaseless, active and fierce opposition to everything that is wrong, evil, perverse or false, is being revealed from heaven against man every single day. The way God’s wrath is daily being revealed is in the steady degeneration of society, the “giving over”of society...

    The Federalist ^ | 07/08/2020 | By Maureen Mullarkey
    Just as with Eddie Adams's famous 1968 photo from the Vietnam War, the images of Derek Chauvin and George Floyd only tell us part of the story. “The god is in the image,” wrote David Freedberg in The Power of Images. But it is a devious god, one that permits our eyes, susceptible to misinterpretation, to tyrannize our capacity to respond coherently to what is in front of us. An image, whether a still photo or an abbreviated video clip divorced from the moments that preceded it, is open to unreliable impressions. It’s also open to propagandistic purposes.A photo...
  • The Nations That Forget God... why we are dissolving pt 2

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalm 9:17)In my last article I related how I recently prayed an exasperated prayer to God, not really expecting an answer. I literally cried out “WHY?” because I was grieved and upset at the rapid deterioration of the USA and the West, spiritually, morally and otherwise. Almost immediately I had received a very clear answer in my soul, which consists of three passages of Scripture, Romans 1, Psalm 2, and Deuteronomy 28. Please consider the lesson taught in Deuteronomy chapter 28 with me, and it’s implications...
  • Why The Nation Is Dissolving...(A Biblical Analysis) pt 1

    A few years ago I went to pray and cried out to the LORD an exasperated Prayer, “WHY?”. What I was referring to was the moral, spiritual and cultural disintegration of our Nation. It was one of those cries, to which I didn’t even expect an answer, I was just pouring my heart out before the LORD, in prayer and sorrow. But I did receive an answer, a very clear thought came to me which I am sure was of the Holy Spirit of God. It come in the form of three passages of Scripture… Psalm 2, Deuteronomy 28, and...
  • The Arrest Of The Hosts From On High...Isaiah apocalypse pt 3

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. ( Isaiah 24:21-23)Isaiah saw the day of the LORD, the...
  • Cytokine storm An overreaction of the body's immune system [analogous to the response to Covid-19?]

    New Scientist Ltd. ^ | April 7, 2020, | Alison George
    Diseases such as covid-19 and influenza can be fatal due to an overreaction of the body’s immune system called a cytokine storm....The name ‘cytokine’ is derived from the Greek words for cell (cyto) and movement (kinos). Sometimes the body’s response to infection can go into overdrive. For example, when SARS -CoV-2 – the virus behind the covid-19 pandemic – enters the lungs, it triggers an immune response, attracting immune cells to the region to attack the virus, resulting in localised inflammation. But in some patients, excessive or uncontrolled levels of cytokines are released which then activate more immune cells, resulting...

  • We could be vastly overestimating the death rate for COVID-19. Here's why

    World Economic Forum ^ | 04 Apr 2020 | Nina Schwalbe
    A lack of adequate testing means many of those who have been infected with the coronavirus will not appear in official statistics. This suggests that many estimates for its mortality rate are much too high... Public health epidemiology is the science of counting to prevent disease and promote health. We count the number of new cases of a particular disease; this is the incidence. Then we count how much a disease has spread in a population; this is the prevalence. When it comes to COVID-19, counting is a challenge. Despite all the news articles and reports, we know very little...

    Recent data for Covid-19 cases and tests alongside state population size, along with deaths from 2017-2018 flu, with options for more rates. The Covid-19 data is from Politico via The COVID Tracking Project as of 4-05-20 AM of positive cases per state, and the # of tests done (the more tested, the more cases are found), the increased number of tests done since last week, and the # of deaths, alongside the total population of each state (you must do the math for the percentages left out), plus death rates for the 2017-18 flu. There are clear contrasts between states...
  • ...As A Snare Shall It Come...Rapture pt 3

    And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. ( Luke 21:34-36)The subject of the Rapture is really about escape. The Scripture polarizes humanity into two different groups, “Those who...
  • The Sin Of False Witness... ten commandments pt 11

    You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Exodus 20:16)The primary understanding of this commandment, is a prohibition of perjury, testifying against a neighbor falsely before a Judge. However, as in the rest of the commandments, the stated prohibition is only chief of a whole category of Sins. Our God is a God of Truth, and commands us to Love truth, and to speak the Truth in Love. God doesn’t lie, neither should his holy people. Exodus 23 expands on this commandment , Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be...
  • Thou Shalt Not Steal... Ten Commandments .. pt 10

    Thou Shalt Not Steal… (Exodus 20:15)A man can have nothing unless it is given to Him by the LORD…( John 3:27)God gives gifts to people. He gives advantages, strengths, talents, insights, personality traits, family connections… etc. , we all have different gifts, by the grace of God. In this sense, God is not egalitarian, He gives varying gifts in differing amounts to people as it pleases him. We are all called to be stewards of those gifts, and it is possible to develop them or squander them, to increase them or to trade them away, but everybody has received certain...
  • The tipping point for nations: Is the 'fourth generation' upon us? Learning From the Amorties

    Christian Post ^ | 03/18/2020 | Wallace Henley
    On July 31, 1976, the natural and man-made basins and reservoirs above Colorado’s Thompson Canyon reached a critical tipping point. Several unusual rain systems seemed to have snagged on the rugged Rocky Mountain peaks. It was as if the clouds were punctured by the craggy spears of rock and the rains gushed out relentlessly. Finally, somewhere up there, a tipping point was reached. A “tipping point” occurs when clusters of small events — like repeating cloudbursts — become weighty enough to cause sweeping destruction. So, somewhere in the Estes Park region a critical mass of rainfall had accumulated in a...
  • Ten Holy Words...Ten Commandments pt 1

    And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. ( Exodus 20:1-3)God spake all of these Words saying… Moses didn’t originate the Ten Commandments, God spoke these Words. He also wrote them with his finger on tablets of stone, and re-iterated every single one of them, save one, in the New Testament. We are not saved by the Law, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have much to say to us and...

  • An Open Letter To A Young Friend...(Sexual confusion, or clarity)

    Dear X, I offer you the warmest greetings in the name of Jesus, I am writing out of a concern for you and a lot of others of your generation. You were born into a world which was already well into a “sexual revolution”, and this has presented you with perplexing questions and issues which my generation (Baby Boomers) didn’t have to bear as much as yours. I come as a friend, and concerned Christian, in Jesus name. I want you to understand that I know why there is such a gap between my generation and yours. I didn’t grow...

  • The Timing Of Jesus and John in Salvation History...Vineyard parables pt 3

    In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were...
