    “Thanking God for St. Michael and All Angels” (Revelation 12:7-12) Today in the Christian church year is Michaelmas, the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. It always falls on September 29, and since this year that date falls on a Sunday, that’s why we’re celebrating it today. Angels, thus, will be topic of this sermon: who they are, what they do, and why we thank God for them. We’ll even get into who this mysterious figure St. Michael is. So now let’s get to it, under the theme, “Thanking God for St. Michael and All Angels.” First of all,...

    September 25, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The “Higher Committee to Implement the Document on Human Fraternity” signed in Abu Dhabi in February by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb of Al-Azhar University, Cairo, met in New York last week in the shadow of the United Nations yearly national assembly for the second time in two weeks. Its most spectacular act was the unveiling of the design for the “Abrahamic Family House,” to be built on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, as a multi-faith complex giving equal space to a synagogue, a church, and a...

    On Wednesday night, Pastor David Platt of McLean Bible Church hosted a simulcast called Something Needs to Change, part of an ongoing initiative from The Gospel Coalition. In the simulcast, Platt, an author and former president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, shared an interview with a missionary named Yazim. “He lives and works in a part of the Middle East where, not only is it illegal to share the Gospel, it’s life-threatening to talk about how the Gospel is advancing,” Platt shared. In the simulcast Yazim, a Middle East church planter shared with Platt and the listeners...

    Ditching credit cards for facial recognition will remove the last physical barrier between our bodies and Corporate America Aram Sinnreich recently went grocery shopping at a Whole Foods Market in his hometown of Washington, D.C., and realized he had left his wallet at home. He had no cards and no cash, but he had no reason to worry — at least, not about paying for his food. “I used my iPhone to pay, and I unlocked it with my face,” he said. That’s when it struck him: We are just one small step away from paying with our bodily features...

    Recently, the Superior General of the Jesuits, Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, declared that “the devil exists only as a symbolic reality.” He has said similar things in the past. He also made news in 2017 when he asserted, concerning Christ’s condemnation of divorce and remarriage, that we can’t know for sure what Jesus really said because no one recorded him on the spot. These and similar remarks make it clear that at least this Jesuit does not believe that Scripture—which teaches manifestly both the reality of the devil and the sinfulness of active divorce and remarriage—is actually the word of...

    n 1970, Hal Lindsey published The Late Great Planet Earth. The book sold millions of copies and introduced a generation to the miraculous fulfillment of end times bible prophecies in our day and time. Coming on the heels of World War II, the rebirth of Israel, the Six Day War, and widespread societal upheaval, many were convinced the rapture would take place before the end of the decade. But the 1970's came and went, and Jesus did not return. Then, in the 1980's and 1990's, numerous bible prophecy books with titles like "Countdown to Armageddon" and "Final Warning" sold all...

    The foundational rupture in the tectonic plates of Western civilization is the breakage along the fault line of truth. The very concept of truth as we have known and inherited it is a Judeo-Christian concept. Germany became a post-Christian nation after its seminaries and universities rejected the Scriptures as God’s perfect, revealed truth. The United States has become a post-Christian nation after its best seminaries and universities—founded as teaching centers for the Word of God—rejected Scripture as God’s perfect, revealed truth. As American culture drifts further and further from anything Christian, the pressure to abandon the authority of the Bible...

    It was a breath of fresh air to see a president celebrate America yesterday. It has been far too long. The contrast to his political opponents couldn't have been sharper. Where President Trump demonstrated the goodness of our country, the DNC media complex can only accuse and bring up past flaws and sins... as though ours is the only country with a past. The difference: America has been mending her flaws for 200 years... that is unique among nations. It got me to thinking, though. We have already called out the Left for their bloodlust in abortion and the kingdom...

    Sandra Airey, the Prophecy Lady, is back re-connecting current events to prophecy. In this article she ties a current crisis in Kentucky with Revelation chapter 19. She believes that biblical prophecy is building up before our very eyes. Sandra's husband was reading the latest article from the Courier Journal about Kentucky black vulture attacks. As Sandra says, "as soon as he started reading Goosebumps went all over me. It's like lightning went through me. I immediately remembered the biblical words about...

    “Behold, I Am Coming Soon!” (Revelation 22:1-6, 12-20) This is now the third in a three-part sermon series on the readings from Revelation 21 and 22. We began two weeks ago when St. John was given a vision of a new heaven and a new earth, and he saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. And a voice from the throne announced: “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will...

    “Behold, the New Jerusalem!” (Revelation 21:9-14, 21-27) This Memorial Day weekend is kind of the unofficial start of the summer vacation season. If you’re like me, I always looked forward to summer vacation. Maybe go up north, get away from the heat and the stress, relax by a lake, enjoy life. And it’s nice to know some things about your vacation destination--where you’re going, the place. This gives you something to look forward to: the beauty, the scenery, the pleasant temperatures, enjoyable activities, time to relax and unwind with people you know and love. And even though you’re not there...

What we will discover over these next couple of weeks is what you and I have to look forward to as the people of God. Brothers and sisters, it will be new and exciting and beyond our wildest imagination! We begin today with the opening verses of Revelation 21....
  • John Haller's Prophecy Update "Relentless Change"

    03/10/2019 11:12:48 AM PDT · by Roman_War_Criminal · 1 replies
    Relentless Change. That is the state of the world. Despite the fact that truth is, and has always been absolute, many are now chasing the illusion that truth is an amorphous, shapeless entity that is always shifting. This is why debates occur on who is male and female, what is right and wrong, and what constitutes "hate" speech, as it differs for the Christian compared to a Muslim, especially if it is Congressman (woman, person, etc.) Hold on to your hats, as per the usual fare, the information John will provide will both outrage and inflame you. But be encouraged....

    Now that we’re retired, the wife and I like to watch Jeopardy in the afternoon. Recently, just before Jeopardy started, I saw the last few minutes of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The young lady was challenged with the question, something like: What number and aquatic animal describe the closures in the Book of Revelation? She had narrowed her possible answers down to two: - 5 Manatees - 7 Seals Had she chosen 7 Seals, of course, I wouldn’t have written this.

    Hi everyone! I usually post these on Wednesdays but in the holiday rush I haven't had much time so either film a video or write a new blog. So I decided to just make the last Why the New Testament Was Written video as a substitute for my usual Saturday blogs.I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This week's concluding video is on why Revelation was written. Rather than delve into the divisive theological issues of eschatology, I decided to focus solely on the historical context of John's vision and the book's authorship.Why John...
