    The Holy Bible (NIV) | "In the Beginning, GOD..." | Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
    My Dear FReeper Friends, I pray that this devotional for today brings you all the love, hope, peace and joy that the Lord Jesus Christ promises to all who believe in Him, and accept Him as their Lord and Savior. To those who are undecided, to those who have had so much pain in their lives that they have reasoned that the Lord God has forgotten them, to any who have outright rejected the Gospel of Christ Jesus, this I say to you: Jesus LOVES you more than anyone on earth can ever love you, and He willingly came to...

    The single chapter epistle of Jude, the brother of James and thus the half-brother of Jesus, was written between 70 and 80 A.D., and it is quite a charge that false doctrines had permeated the church in such a relatively short time. You will note that both Peter and Jude describe doctrinal deviations that had invaded the body of believers in the churches that had been established. False prophets and false teachers were constantly mentioned in the letters of the Apostle Paul as well. Thus, Jude’s change of purpose of his epistle to that of concern for the ongoing of...
  • A Quick, Compelling Bible Study Vol. 24 – ‘Face of God’ in the New Testament

    08/23/2020 7:05:29 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | August 23, 2020 | Myra Kahn Adams
    Today we conclude a two-part Bible Study series. Part 1 explored what the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) revealed about the Face of God, and in Part 2, we will discuss the New Testament. To recap, last week I quoted Shroud of Turin expert Russ Breault from his presentation, “The Seven Secrets of the Sacred Shroud” (accessed free with password: shroudencounter3768) when during “The Face” segment he says:“Something dramatically changed between the Old and New Testaments. In the Old, no one ever saw the face of God. In the New, everyone saw the face of Jesus. John [the Apostle] told us the glory of God was manifested...
  • 'Kamikaze Academics' and a Cardinal, Revolutionary Principle of Jesus

    08/16/2020 5:05:24 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | August 16, 2020 | Michael Brown
    The teachings of Jesus are filled with paradoxes, but none is more paradoxical than this: “whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25). As expressed in another passage, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life” (John 12:24-25). This is a cardinal, revolutionary principle, and by understanding...

    (click link upper left-hand corner for video) The video is just over 28 minutes long. I believe that many of the topics Dr. Hagee discusses will ring a bell with God-fearing conservative FReepers.

    So this was released when CHAZ/CHOP had been going on. In this video Pastor Hagee discusses the Democrats war on the police, Jerusalem, the Rapture, the two witnesses of Revelation 11, the Antichrist, President Trump moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem (thank you President Trump!) and more. No doubt some will be offended. Nobody made them watch this video. So watch the video at your own risk (haha). The video is 28 and a half minutes long. Again, I don't always exactly agree with what Dr. Hagee teaches but he has always been kind and gracious when I met him....

    Noisy Room ^ | July12, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Oh, yes, He was, and as Jesus would pray on the cross on which He was crucified and died for our sins, something which also applies to the Don Lemons of the world, he intoned, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Or say. In defending the destruction of tax-payer funded property, the rioters do not own or honor, even including the Founders and the preservers of our democracy, such as Washington, Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln and even to the point of possibly sandblasting Mt. Rushmore, Lemon uttered perhaps the most imbecilic words ever to come out...

    The Federalist ^ | June 30, 2020 | Nathan Stone
    The outrage over statues and the 'white' depictions of Christ is meant to detract us from the real endgame: the 'canceling of Christianity itself. Towards the end of his reign, Tuthmosis III of Egypt ordered the destruction of all the public monuments to his aunt, Hatshepsut, the former leader of Egypt. It wasn’t the first instance of iconoclasm that the world had seen, but it has become one of the most memorable.Iconoclasm — the deliberate destruction of images — has existed almost as long as man has walked the earth. When it took place, there were usually deep and profound...

    The Son of Man who suffered and died for the sins of all mankind is not at all constrained by our petty differences and fights over skin tone. The iconoclasts of 2020 are wasting their time toppling Thomas Jefferson and defacing George Washington when they could be shattering the stained glass windows of churches and disfiguring sculptures of Jesus Christ — the true root of America’s rot, according to Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King. “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always...

    Far-left activist Shaun King on Monday said all images depicting Jesus as a “white European” should be torn down because they are a form of “white supremacy.” King made his remarks over a series of Twitter posts as historic monuments and statues have become the targets of anger and vandalism during Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in police custody late last month. “Yes I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been,” King tweeted. “In the...

He therefore let you be afflicted with hunger, and then fed you with manna, a food unknown to you and your fathers, in order to show you that not by bread alone does one live, but by every word...

    Posted on May 5, 2020 by Msgr. Charles Pope How Did Jesus Go From Being a Hero to Being Hated In Less Than a Week? Although we are well into the Easter season, my mind harkens back to an event on Good Friday that has often puzzled me. What turned the crowd against Jesus? Recall that just six days earlier, on Palm Sunday, the crowds praised Him, acclaimed Him Son of David, and spoke of Him as a king and messiah. By the morning of Good Friday, though, they were calling for Him to be crucified. What turned them...
  • What If the Shroud of Turin Is Christ's Authentic Burial Cloth?

    Yesterday on "Holy Saturday," there was an extraordinary online exposition of the Shroud of Turin —purported to be the authentic burial cloth of Jesus Christ — viewed live across the globe on numerous media platforms. Catholic News Service reported earlier this week that amid the coronavirus pandemic, Archbishop Nosiglia [of Turin, Italy] had received thousands of requests to pray before the Shroud during Holy Week to ask God for “the grace to defeat evil as he did, trusting in the goodness and mercy of God.”The report concluded with the Archbishop's heart wrenching, yet hopeful statement that seeing the Shroud "will go to the...

    Townhall ^ | Timothy Head
    Good Friday – the one day where millions of the world’s Christians forgo a night at the movies or a party with friends and family to go to church. The most solemn day of the Christian year, it commemorates Christ’s atoning death on the cross for the sins of the world. It’s a hard day to celebrate any year – but it’s especially difficult to reflect on Christ’s death in 2020. Why would we want to spend time contemplating a violent, unjust death when all around us, there’s more suffering than we can alleviate and more uncertainty than we can...

    Dispensational Publishing House ^ | 4/10/2020 | Mark Musser
    One of the longest chapters in the New Testament is 1st Corinthians 15 where the apostle Paul sets forth a series of arguments to teach his wayward church in Corinth about the reality of the resurrection of the dead. Written from Ephesus (16:8) in roughly 56 A.D., 1st Corinthians is one of the few letters that have not been questioned with regard to its authenticity. Even the primary guru of German radical historical higher criticism, F. C. Bauer (1792-1860), who superimposed Hegel’s (1770-1831) philosophy of history as an interpretive grid over the top of the New Testament documents to rearrange...

    ABSTRACT: Jesus of Nazareth underwent Jewish and Roman trials, was flogged, and was sentenced to death by crucifixion. The scourging produced deep stripelike lacerations and appreciable blood loss, and it probably set the stage for hypovolemic shock as evidenced by the fact that Jesus was too weakened to carry the crossbar (patibulum) to Golgotha. At the site of crucifixion his wrists were nailed to the patibulum, and after the patibulum was lifted onto the upright post, (stipes) his feet were nailed to the stipes. The major pathophysiologic effect of crucifixion was an interference with normal respirations. Accordingly, death resulted primarily...

But Ahaz answered, “I will not ask! I will not tempt the LORD!” Then Isaiah said: Listen, O house of David! Is it not enough for you to weary people, must you also weary my God? Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and...

    There are three accounts in the New Testament of Jesus Christ feeding a multitude of people with a handful of loaves of bread and a few small fish. In the Gospel of Matthew, the number of people is listed as 4,000. In the Gospels of Luke and Mark, the number is stated to be 5,000. According to all three gospels, large crowds of people follow Jesus into a remote area, where he preaches to them for several hours. (The account in Matthew says that the crowds are with Jesus for "three days"). Christ's disciples advise him to send the crowds...
