    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is already looking ahead to forming his top White House team and is considering one of his sons as the head of the Interior Department. In an interview with Petersen's Hunting, he offered both his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, as the cabinet secretary because they are hunters and anglers and members of key conservation and Second Amendment groups. In the interview with editor Mike Schoby, Trump said that "ideally" he wants an outdoorsman to run the agency that manages federal land. "Ideally yes, they'd be better at it," said Trump. In the interview with...
  • Saudi Arabia: A Weak Kingdom On Its Knees?

    01/14/2016 4:10:02 PM PST · by bananaman22 · 21 replies ^ | 14-11-2015 | Tom
    The great Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—the long-time dictator of crude oil prices for the world—is struggling on all fronts. The Saudis are losing their proxy wars in both Syria and Yemen; their OPEC leadership is under threat; they are not winning the crude oil price war; and its long-running alliance with the West is in question. From Saudi Arabia’s perspective, Iran seems to be gaining ground everywhere. Saudi Arabia has several weaknesses that help explain the current anxiety emanating from Riyadh. 1. Saudi Arabia losing its leadership in the OPEC Saudi Arabia has been the default leader of OPEC; however,...

    Spirit and Truth ^ | N/A | Andy Woods
    The contemporary evangelical world is engulfed in the idea that the church is presently experiencing the messianic kingdom. The idea of the "kingdom" can be bewildering, especially considering how this term is loosely bandied about by today's evangelicals. Many ministries convey the notion that the kingdom is strictly a spiritual and present reality by indicating that they are "expanding the kingdom" through their evangelistic and missionary endeavors. Even Christian political activists sometimes argue that they are "bringing in the kingdom." ... when rightly understood, the "Disciples' Prayer" consists of three requests for the kingdom to come and three additional requests...

    While it is true that the millennium (that is, one thousand years) is found only in Revelation 20, the belief in the Messianic Kingdom does not rest on this passage alone. In fact, it hardly rests on it at all. The basis for the belief in the Messianic Kingdom is twofold. First: there are the unfulfilled promises of the Jewish covenants, promises that can only be fulfilled in a Messianic Kingdom. Second: there are the unfulfilled prophecies of the Jewish prophets. There are numerous prophecies of the Old Testament that speak of the coming of the Messiah Who will reign...

    When I was a child in elementary school, people often asked me, What is your favorite subject? Invariably my response was one of two things. I either said, recess or gym.

Indeed, my nascent philosophical musing regarding the cosmic Why? questions took place as I made a game of walking to school via tiptoeing along a long path, pretending I was a high-wire walker in a circus.

    Just Genesis ^ | April 21, 2013 | Alice C. Linsley
    To understand Abraham's call it is helpful to investigate the circumstances at the time of his father's death in Haran. Knowledge of the Horite marriage and ascendancy pattern proves especially helpful. As with all the Horite rulers, Terah had two wives. They resided in separate settlements on a north-south axis. One lived in Ur and the other in Haran. Terah traveled between his wives, a distance of at least 730 miles. Likewise, Abraham's territory extended between Hebron, where Sarah resided, and Beersheba, where Keturah resided. The Horites were ruler-priests who maintained water shrines. Abraham's father was such a ruler. His...

At a time when Americans confidence in organized religion has hit a 40-year low, that mindset seems particularly prevalent among younger Christians. At the recent National Conference on Youth Ministries, Scot McKnight one of the keynote speakers challenged what he described as the modern tendency to lift up social justice efforts as kingdom work. Its like a tsunami, beginning to overtake the church, and the church is losing significance in local communities because...

    Knowing that the government or kingdom of God that Jesus taught us to pray for (Matt. 6:10) is a very real and actual rule by Christ as its King we can examine the Scriptures to see what conditions will be under that rule. While preaching about the coming of this kingdom Jesus showed, albeit in a limited way, that no one would want for food. The Good News of the Kingdom would not include stories of hungry orphans and families begging for enough food to ease the pangs of starvation. When some 5000 men plus families were gathered to hear...

They have at hand the outlines of that government. Dan. 2:44 makes clear God's plan to set up such a government, not in competition with any other, but by removing them.

    We are discussing Rev. 20 in my Sunday school class. One of my students challenged me to show her a verse that says that Jesus will literally rule from Jerusalem during the Millennium. I don't think there's such a verse, that it is more like something you can deduce from some Old Testament prophecy. For example, Messiah will be on David's throne and where else but Jerusalem could David's throne be found? Anyhow, if anybody has some good verses that I can use, I will love to hear from y'all. Thanks.

With fewer than six months to her Diamond Jubilee, when celebrations are planned for the length and breadth of the kingdom, the disorder has alarmed aides planning the extravaganza. Central to their concern is not just the damage to the countrys image overseas, but also how quickly the feelgood factor engendered by Aprils Royal Wedding has been lost. From her summer home in Balmoral, the Queen has kept in touch with developments and...

    In October of 2007, Obama declared at a Apostolic Church in Greenville, South Carolina that he would create a millennial kingdom of God on earth. The church is Redemption World Outreach Center and is reported to be a part of the Pentecostal Holiness movement, according to some websites. Some Pentecostals believe that the kingdom will be a real physical kingdom, a theocracy ruled by men, and this appears to be such a sect. The doctrine that the millennial kingdom will be a man-made physical kingdom on earth created by political or military means is called Dominion Theology. The doctrine of...

    Anyone following the threads on the religious forum could hardly not notice the endless arguments over what constitutes personal salvation, who is the most Christian and the general low level of discourse. Instead Christ's apostle, Paul counceled, "Let your utterance always be gracious, seasoned with salt.." (Col. 4:6) In short, tasty, not dripping with acid. As Jesus gave instructions on how to pray in Mattew 6:9-13 the establishment of the kingdom took priority over anyone's personal savation and it was this that was called "Good News" when Jesus said the 'good news' (or gospel) would be preached in all the...

    Good News Magazine ^ | Unknown | Unknown
    What are the "keys of the kingdom" referred to in Matthew 16:19? What authority did Jesus Christ give to Peter and the New Testament Church of God? The Bible uses a key as a symbol of authority. In Isaiah 22:22, we see Eliakim the priest receiving "the key of the house of David…on his shoulder." Revelation 3:7 uses similar symbolism. A trusted servant to the king wore the key to the king's house on a hook on his shoulder. Therefore, he had the authority to open or close the king's house. Assuming Jesus was addressing Peter in Matthew 16:19, some...

Roman Catholics; to them the church mentioned in the passage is the Catholic, or the Roman Catholic Church, depending on who I might have been speaking to. My own dad was a Catholic until 1975, and he almost always used the expression Roman Catholic (until 1975 always defending it)....
