What is ‘Visual’? Visual, especially with reference to visual methods, may not necessarily equate with the images directly viewed with the eye at a given moment. When a person closes their eyes and images emerge from consciousness, do they remain “unseen”? If a person can visualize the invisible, it may not be a stretch to… Continue reading Visual Sociology
Matthew 24:15 says, “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)” There are many ideas of what this “abomination of desolation” is, but the Bible creates an interesting puzzle in order to truly understand it. Some believe the… Continue reading The Abomination of Desolation
“The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.”Psalms 147:11 Many Christians today focus on mercy, but very few on the fear of the Lord. God created the universe and everything in it just by His utterance. He controls the earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, and raindrops. He fills the… Continue reading Hope and Fear
Psalm 2:4 "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision." When "the heathen rage" (Psalm 2:1) and the kings and rulers of the world gather together "against the Lord" (verse 2), the Lord laughs and mocks them. This should chill us to the bone - not for our… Continue reading The God Who Laughs
“And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” — 2 Kings 6:17 When we feel we are alone, we… Continue reading The Angel Armies
****UPDATE: 3/18/2020**** The COVID-19 pandemic should be driving people to church, but our churches have been shutting their doors to “live stream” services. The unsaved will likely not respond to this tactic as much as they would to meeting face-to-face with Christians. Fear typically drives unbelievers to God. After 9/11, churches were filled. After the… Continue reading The End Times (Part 2): The Rapture and the "One Worlds"
****UPDATE: 3/18/20**** I am writing this during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The entire American economy is grinding to a halt, and hundreds of millions of people across the planet are scared to go outside. These are extraordinary times, and I cannot believe I am updating this again in just six months. In early 2020, we… Continue reading The “End Times” (Part 1): Are We There Yet?
"And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail." Hebrews 1:12 This verse is talking about the universe, including the heavens and earth (verse 10). God wears the universe like clothing (a vesture), and He will change them and… Continue reading He Wears the Universe
About 10 years ago, I predicted a simultaneous civil war, world war, and economic collapse. At that time, we were in the midst of the “Great Recession” and escalating conflict overseas between Middle Eastern nations including our own “war on terror” that continues to solider on. Right now, it seems that those last two issues… Continue reading The Coming Civil Conflict
Leviathan. If the name is familiar, it is because leviathan is one of the most popular creatures in mythology and role-playing video games (the image above is from Final Fantasy XV). He (sorry, but I am assigning a gender here) is depicted as a massive sea creature – often a serpent. Leviathan is also the… Continue reading Is Leviathan a Dinosaur?
