    Sr. Mary Ada | April 19, 2014 | Sister Mary Ada, OSJ
    Limbo by Sister Mary Ada, OSJ The ancient grayness shifted Suddenly and thinned Like mist upon the moors Before a wind. An old, old prophet lifted A shining face and said: “He will be coming soon. The Son of God is dead; He died this afternoon.” A murmurous excitement stirred All souls. They wondered if they dreamed – Save one old man who seemed Not even to have heard. And Moses, standing, Hushed them all to ask If any had a welcome song prepared. If not, would David take the task? And if they cared Could not the three young...

    Was "Babylon The Great" a Symbolic Name for Jerusalem? Recall that Jesus said: "… it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem" (Luke 13:33.) That is a very important statement to keep in mind when considering the following passages: and later in the same chapter of Luke, Jesus added: "…I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which...

    As talk and rumors of an impending Western attack against Syria mount, a top Syrian official said Monday that if attacked, his country would react – against Israel. Speaking to an Arabic-language radio station operated by the United States, Syria's Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah said that Israel would face not only Syria in the event that the US, Britain and France attempted to unseat Bashar al-Assad. A coalition consisting of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria would respond to any attack against Assad with a response against Israel. In addition, terrorist groups in Syria and Lebanon would attack Israel with...

    Featured Term (selected at random):AMOS Third among the minor prophets. He describes Israel as steeped in national prosperity and reveling is sin. The central theme of his book is a threefold prophecy that extends through nine chapters. The first part (1-2) foretells God's judgment on the nations surrounding Israel and then on Israel itself. The second part (3-6) develops the divine judgment against Israel in three separate discourses. The third part (7-9) records five visions, of which the fifth describes the glorious anticipation of messianic blessings. Amos is the prophet of God's sovereign lordship over all creation.

    What is Biblical Prophecy?by Felix Just, S.J., Ph.D.  Introduction: What Biblical Prophecy is NOT, and What It Really IS:Contrary to what many fundamentalist preachers or late-night radio hosts would have you believe, biblical prophecy is not primarily about "predicting the future" or finding clues in the Bible that correspond to people or events in our own day and age! The prophets of Ancient Israel did not look into some kind of crystal ball and see events happening thousands of years after their own lifetimes. The books they wrote do not contain hidden coded messages for people living in the 20th...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | June 13, 2012 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    We often like to read from and quote the prophets. But if you’ve ever met a real prophet you know that being in the presence of a real prophet can be very disturbing. Prophets love God’s people, but they love them too much to gainsay the truth.Prophets were famous for goring every one’s ox. No one left the presence of a prophet untouched.So troubling were the prophets of old, including Jesus, that most of them were persecuted, jailed, stoned, exiled and killed. Most of the Biblical prophets were beyond controversial, they were way over the top. Prophets denounced sin and...

    Israel’s New and Improved Ancient War Cry By Norma Zager “And the Walls Came a Tumbling Down…” from the story of Joshua and the Battle of Jericho. In Ari’s last Postcard he discussed the new war facing Israel, coming battles that will require new methods, new strategies and new weapons for Israel’s survival. This is all true were it not for one small caveat: Israel must return to its ancient battle strategy to defeat its enemies, or it will be lost forever. I suppose at first glance this premise sounds a bit insane. Nuclear weapons will be aimed at Israeli...

    Mormon Coffee ^ | April 7, 2011 | Sharon Lindbloom
    Last month (March 2011) Ensign magazine included a challenge titled “How Well Do You Know Our Church Leaders?” It consisted of 15 details from the lives of the 15 current Prophets, Seers and Revelators of the LDS Church. Readers were invited to match the names with the facts. The Ensign challenge included things like figuring out which leader once raised rabbits or worked on an oyster boat. The lives of LDS leaders throughout the history of the Mormon Church reflect much more interesting details than those included in the Ensign article. So I here add my own version of “How...

    Time ^ | Sept 2, 2010 | Elizabeth Diaz
    fortune tellers in Warren, Mich., must be fingerprinted and pay an annual fee of $150 — plus $10 for a police background check — to practice their craft. But officials in Warren, a town of 138,000 near Detroit, say it's time to weed out tricksters. "We had no mechanism of enforcement to protect people against unsavory characters," Regulating an industry that deems itself clairvoyant, has no standard education requirements and yet rakes in cash for revealing spiritual truths may itself be an act of faith. It also might make good economic sense: about 1 in 7 Americans consulted a psychic...

    A recent article in a national newspaper caught my eye, then turned my stomach as I opened and read a description of flagrant immorality, its promotion and growing acceptance in our society. The article was titled "Cougars prowl the seas aboard The Lust Boat." It described cruises organized to pair older women, "cougars," and younger men, "cubs," to provide an opportunity for immorality. My dismay was renewed when a week or so later the same national newspaper carried an article on high-priced entry fees for a string of "adult" pools at hotels in Las Vegas. There is a heavy emphasis...

Whitman wrote: “The ice storm [that winter] wasn’t generally destructive.

Do you take that warning seriously? by Tom Robinson When Jesus Christ's disciples asked Him what would herald His coming to rule all nations, He answered by first relaying a series of developments that would lead up to the grand climax of the present age: religious deception, wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes (Matthew 24:3-8; Mark 13:3-8; Luke 21:7-11).

Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him" (Zech. 12:1-13:1). God is the one who speaks.

    The Giuliani candidacy has polarized politically conservative Christians and Jews — perhaps less over Rudy’s position on abortion than, more subtly, over a question of emphasis. Who’s right? The Jewish “neoconservatives,” who make up more than half of Giuliani’s star foreign-policy advisory team (Norman Podhoretz, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Martin Kramer, and David Frum)? Or Christians, like Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who would not rule out supporting a third party candidate if Giuliani gets the nomination? To adjudicate the dispute, I propose an appeal to the part of the Bible on whose authority Jews (like myself) and Christians...

    The world is hearing much these days about "prophets." Was Moses a prophet? Was Jesus a prophet? Was Mohammed a prophet? Interestingly, Moses, the man credited with leading the children of Israel out of Egypt is considered a great prophet by followers of Islam. Moses, or Musa, is mentioned often in the Quran. Much of the Quran is based on the teachings of Moses as opposed to the teaching of Jesus. Jesus is considered by Christians to be the Son of God. He was the Messiah all prophets before him, including Moses, had predicted changing them from mere "predictors" into...

    How to Circumnavigate the Human Intellect: The Key to Reaching the Lost by Ray Comfort Have you ever thought, "There must be a key to reaching the lost"? There is - but it's rusty through lack of use. The Bible does actually call it "the key," and its purpose is to bring us to Christ - to unlock the Door of the Savior (John 10:9). Yet much of the Church still doesn't even know that it exists. Not only is it Biblical, but it can be shown through history that the Church used it to unlock the doors of genuine...
