    Accumulating Wrath…Romans 2 Posted on July 30, 2010 by billrandles But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds:(Romans 2;5-6) Romans opens with the warning of Judgment, first against those who “suppress the truth ” that they know about God, the godless. Holy wrath is already being revealed against them, in that they are being given over to moral confusion, degrading lusts, and reprobation. But wrath is also being revealed against moralistic man. He...

    All is Not One… Posted on May 31, 2010 by billrandles In Genesis One, God does the work of creating and seperating. He seperates Light from darkness,day from night, earth from water, beast from fish, male from female , etc. Creation itself is seperate from God, the creator, they are not one and the same. He is a God of the particulars, therefore he seperates and makes distinctions. Knowing reality is about recognising distinctions as well. We have experienced an upheaval, a real revolution of thought and philosophy in the west over the last hundred years. Much of it is...

Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.(Isaiah 24:5-6) Isaiah has a section called the “Little Apocalypse”, from chapter 24-27 in which he describes the end of the world in terms of the breakdown of human society.

    The Capture of the Ark pt 3 I Samuel 5 The Future History of the Gentiles Bill Randles The story of the capture of the Ark of God, contains not only history, as we have seen, but also Gospel, and Eschatology. We pointed out in our last article that the future history of Israel was outlined in the double defeats by the Philistines, and the loss of the Ark. The first defeat, in which 4000 Israelites were killed in battle, corresponds to the Babylonian captivity and the destruction of Solomon’s temple. It was devastating, but Israel did return from captivity...

Because of their desperate need for oil, there is much international deference to Arabs. It is constantly insisted by the so called ‘Quartet”(the UN, the EU and the USA and Russia) that Israel, must go back to the pre 1967 borders, Israel must quit humiliating Palestinians, Israel must grant right of return to full...

While praying for the nation in general, and also concerning a gathering this summer to cry out for awakening in America, I felt drawn to the book of Joel. While reading it, this word began to stir in me for our nation. I know it is lengthy, but please read it prayerfully. Not since October of 2000 have I been so burdened for America. At that time I issued a call to prayer, which, due to the favor and anointing...

The following testimony, instead, was given on May 5, 2005 in Caracas, Venezuela.

Obama has never refuted such claims and has made fun of the Bible and of Jesus Christ. Many people blindly follow Obama to wherever his teleprompter leads them.

    Now that President Barack Obama has added the “Agony of Defeat” to the American experience after his humiliating performance in Copenhagen, the American people need to determine if this man has the judgment and ability to handle responsibilities more substantive than giving flowery speeches. He may look and sound terrific on television, but is Obama the one who should be deciding the fate of 300 million Americans and all of the free world? Can Barack Obama, having shown that he cannot handle a simple matter like the Olympics, be trusted to serve as Commander-in-chief of the world’s lone super power?

    We seem to be in an era when it seems God's wrath is about to increase upon this world because the world has turned to man instead of God to correct it's mistakes. There is not one person in the whole world that is not a sinner. However, those of us who have a right relationship with God, and receive His forgiveness, and walk in His ways are described as righteous (Gen.6: 9) and blameless (Job 1:1); (Ps 18:20-24). This is not because we are free from sin, but because the true direction of our lives is to serve and...

    Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. God's reply: "I do not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive. There is no such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell everyone, do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and this is wrong, because the rule is 'judge not lest ye be judged.'"

    First, most of America yawned when it learned that Barack Obama began his political career in the living room of a terrorist. I expect a similar response to the the fact that Barack Obama gained his first experience in a statewide political campaign working on behalf of the Blagojevich. How ironic that the student would become the President, while Blago would become the auctioneer of Barack Obama's Senate seat. This New Yorker piece probably deserves a fresh new look: That year, he gained his first high-level experience in a statewide campaign when he advised the victorious gubernatorial candidate Rod Blagojevich,...

    A Question to Ponder It may too late in the process, but I thought we should ask this question: What is God’s view of a woman as the head of a nation? How we answer that question will, of course, betray our system of Bible interpretation; so, let’s ask the text. In the midst of his pronouncement of awful judgment, Isaiah states as part of that judgment, “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” If this...

While those who have been affected by the storms are innocent victims, the bishops argue controversially that the flooding is a result of Western civilisation's decision to...

    NEW YORK -- Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani acknowledged again Friday that he made a mistake when he recommended Bernard Kerik to be the nation's homeland security chief. The acknowledgment followed a report in The New York Times that the former New York City mayor was warned about Kerik's relationship with a company with suspected ties to organized crime even before Giuliani appointed Kerik as New York City police commissioner. Giuliani told a Bronx grand jury last year that his former chief investigator recalled briefing him on Kerik's relationship with the company, Interstate Industrial Corp., before Kerik's appointment.

    Approval of Congress has increased since the midterm elections ousted Republicans from their House and Senate majorities, and Democrats are viewed in a more positive light after two weeks in power, according to the survey. But only 25% of those surveyed believed Democrats have formulated a clear direction for the country; 58% said they had failed to. Those results amount to a mixed report card on the much-ballyhooed "100-hour" agenda House Democrats set for themselves as they took power. ...But the survey underscores that Democrats still have much to prove to voters as the Senate debates these bills and lawmakers...

One teaches that believers will receive some kind of physical rewards (literal crowns) in heaven based on their works done as Christians. The second school of thought teaches that the heavenly reward of believers is...

The question of abortion is much more ambiguous than the louder voices on either side of the pro-life/pro-choice divide are willing to admit. The hard-line anti-abortion crusaders may be disappointed by the legal realities, at least in the short term. At the same time, the pro-abortion-rights interest groups are just beginning to grapple with an uncomfortable truth: that many...

Officials also determined that using the act to incite Taliban fighters by announcing it over psychological operations loudspeakers was a separate act. In all, four soldiers have received administrative punishment in the two incidents.

    DETROIT -- A man serving a life sentence for a murder conviction has won a $219,000 judgment against a prison employee. Darrell Siggers claims he was transferred to another prison in 2001 in retaliation for a complaint. The 41-year-old Detroit man claimed that David Barlow, a resident unit manager at Mound Correctional Facility, had him transferred after he complained that Barlow failed to promptly process paperwork to pay for a lawyer. Barlow denied Siggers claim. But on Wednesday Siggers won the judgment, which included $200,000 in punitive damages. The state attorney general's office said the case might be appealed.
  • Jordanians Are Shocked --- Shocked! --- That A Wedding Would Be Blown Up! (Dennis Prager Alert)

    Jordanians are shocked that Islamic terrorists would blow up families, including families celebrating a wedding. They are so shocked that for the first time in history, Muslims have taken to publicly demonstrating against Islamic terror. And why are they shocked? Because the terrorists blew up Jordanians. As long as Islamic terrorists blew up men, women and children who are Jewish, Christian, Hindu, American, Australian and black Sudanese, the Arab and larger Muslim worlds were not particularly disturbed. In fact, Palestinians, who comprise the majority of Jordan's population, celebrated when Jews were blown up at Passover seders and at weddings. And...

    What’s Wrong with "User Friendly"? Recently, the 11th edition of the Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary was published. The reprint included 10,000 new words–words that will bring us all up to date. Words like "phat" (excellent), "dead presidents" (paper currency), and "McJob" (low paying, dead-end job) are among the entries that will finally help us communicate with our teenagers. How did those words make it into the updated dictionary? There is one criterion: usage. A word qualifies for the new edition based on how widespread its usage has become. While I can’t imagine how phat, McJob, and dead presidents will find a...

    25 Warnings in Ten Years to the United States - Bill Koenig In John McTernan's and my book, "Israel: The Blessing or the Curse," we showed how the Lord over ten years has given the United States 21 warnings the same day the U.S. has pressed Israel to give up their land. There were record-setting earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, tropical storms, floods and stock market corrections. I have also included 4 more since President George W. Bush took a more active role in the Middle East talks. October 30, 1991 - President George W. Bush and Russian President Michael Gorbachev begin...

    THE DAY OF THE LORD About a month ago my wife, my three girls and I had the privilege to see a full arced double rainbow in the sky. In a moment of insanity this preacher thought about going and chasing down a double portion of gold at the end of those rainbows. But when the fog of financial bliss finally wore off I decided to tell my girls that those rainbows were Signs by God promising mankind that he wasn’t going to destroy the world again by the flood like he did during Noah‘s time. Their moment of relief...

    On The London Attacks Chuck Pierce Dear Friends: I was awakened this morning at 4:30 am, unable to breathe. Around 5 am, the Lord told me to turn on the television and watch the news. I had been praying about our trip to England that I leave on this afternoon. When I turned on the news, Tony Blair was making the statement that London has been attacked by terrorists. The underground transportation network and bus network in central London had been suspended due to several bombings. Actually, the bus that was shown on the news that had been attacked was...

    Limbo and the Hope of Salvation by Dr. Jeff Mirus, special to CatholicCulture.orgMay 12, 2005 In a recent website review, we were compelled to list the site’s views on limbo as a weakness. Some Catholics are under the impression that the Church has formally taught that unbaptized infants cannot be saved but must inevitably be consigned to a marginal abode known as limbo, where no supernatural happiness is possible. But this is not what the Church teaches. The Questions Raised by BaptismThe Church does teach that the enjoyment of the presence of God in heaven is not ours by right....

    Clarion Call To Avert West Coast Disaster Burdell Austin For several years many of you have been getting words of warning, dreams, and visions of an earthquake and tsunami in this region [U.S. West Coast]. I join many who sense it is time to mobilize an army of worshiping warriors, who will go before the Lord in humility for those sins committed on the land that give legal right to the adversary to perform acts of violence. As we hear from the Lord regarding specific repentance needed to cleanse the land, we will then have the blood-bought authority of the...

    I was a bit careless this past weekend. And, in the spirit of confession being good for the soul, I’d like to tell you about it. Normally on the weekend, I like to sleep. A lot! One of my colleagues, a former paramedic, has informed me without any doubt or hesitation that there is no way to “make up” for lost sleep. Well, call the Mayo Clinic (and hold the ham on rye) because I do it every single weekend. I’m talking serious snore time here. But not this past weekend. No, I decided to take a quick trip over...
