KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD

David Wilkerson (1931-2011) August 9, 2019   There is a thrilling Old Testament story that best illustrates what it means to be kept by the power of God. We find it in 2 Kings 6.

As his forces advanced, he often called his war counsel into his private chambers to plan the … Continue reading KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD

False prophets and false teachers

To stone or not to stone Ron Cantor  – Aug 12, 2018 Dan Juster, Ariel Blumenthal and Asher Intrater contributed to this article Is someone who prophesies mistakenly a “false prophet”? Is someone who teaches in error a “false teacher”? For instance, we believe strongly in the Gifts of the Spirit. If another teacher teaches cessation (the idea that those gifts have ceased), is one of us a false … Continue reading False prophets and false teachers

G-d’s goodness overcomes all

Throughout the Bible there are many places where, as believers, we read the text and immediately grieve in our hearts. One of the saddest dialogs is found in the book of Exodus, yet this same dialog takes place today and, unfortunately, too often we respond in exactly the same way without realizing what we are saying and doing. In Exodus chapter 6:6-9, we find one … Continue reading G-d’s goodness overcomes all

Top 30 Evidences for God

This article is a brief summary of the evidence supporting God’s existence. 1. The Fine-Tuning Argument. The obvious fine-tuning of the world “proves” the existence of a “Designer.” Science has calculated the odds against our universe randomly taking a form suitable for life as: One in 10,000,000,000124 [Ravi Zacharias, The End of Reason, p. 35] 2. The Teleological Argument (Design). The obvious design (complexity) of the world “proves” the existence of a “Designer.” Science has estimated that the … Continue reading Top 30 Evidences for God

V’et’chanan I pleaded Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11 Isaiah 40:1-26 “Call Upon Him!” by Mark Huey mark@outreachisrael.net V’et’channan is one of the most compelling Torah portions in the entire annual cycle.

In 1978, mathematician Kurt Gödel died and left behind a long and complex theory based on modal logic. Dr Gödel’s model uses mathematical equations that are extremely complicated, … Continue reading Scientists use mathematical calculations to PROVE the existence of God

Progressively Regressive Sexuality: A Return to Pagan Morality

How often have you heard sexual progressives claim that those of us who hold to traditional sexual morality and marriage are “on the wrong side of history?” But as one new book points out, it’s the proponents of the sexual revolution who are embracing a sexual morality that history left behind millennia ago—in the dusty ruins of the Roman Forum. Yes, today Western civilization is … Continue reading Progressively Regressive Sexuality: A Return to Pagan Morality

Yes, Jesus is Your Only Hope

We live in a time when “tolerance,” “diversity” and “inclusivity” are considered by many cultural virtues that supersede all others. This popular relativist notion disregards something far more important: Truth. Yet, and to borrow from Pontius Pilate, “What is truth?” Jesus is truth. Either that or, as C.S. Lewis famously observed, He is a liar, a lunatic or the “Devil of Hell” himself. Christ was … Continue reading Yes, Jesus is Your Only Hope

PART ONE—IT STARTED THE NIGHT TOM HORN DIED AND APPEARED BEFORE GOD

Many years ago I, Tom Horn, died and woke up in heaven. Contemplating my surroundings, I wondered where I was, where I had come from, how long I had been here, and why I had no memories of getting here…whereverhere was. At that moment, I knew this was no dream; it was too vivid to be anything less than real. In fact, it felt realer … Continue reading PART ONE—IT STARTED THE NIGHT TOM HORN DIED AND APPEARED BEFORE GOD

GOD RAISED UP A MAN by David Wilkerson [May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011] In Nehemiah’s day, the walls of Jerusalem were in ruins, the city a literal pile of stones.
