A man who once proudly proclaimed to be an atheist and libertarian now says he’s a conservative Christian after writing a book that was aimed to “explore the horrors of the 20th century.”
The authors of the book, Jason Jones and John Zmirak, argue in their writings that the horrors of the last century stem from five evil ideologies: racism; nationalism; militarism and “total war” utopian collectivism; radical individualism; and Unitarian hedonism.
Jones says that he was putting together a two-minute video on the concept which was soundly rejected by the “leftist faculty” at his school.
“I just wanted to pour the horrors of the 20th century into two minutes,” Jones said, “to create an urgency among young people at my school, and why they should major in political science, because ideas matter.”
However, the video had one major unexpected impact.
It led Jones to Christ.
Jones said now he feels a passion to bring the truth to the world to help them over the next 100 years to avoid the crimes of the last 100 years such as the holocaust.
Summer is just around the corner for the United States, but winter hasn’t given up yet.
Residents of Alta, Utah were surprised with nine inches of snow on Tuesday. More snow is expected in parts of the Northern Rockies until Thursday morning. Meteorologists report winds will gust up to 30 miles per hour and visibility will be less than half a mile during the worst parts of the storm.
“Seeing this in June is crazy,” Utah resident, Jan Frazier said. “I’ve never seen it. You wouldn’t expect thunderclouds like this turning into snow in June, you know?”
State officials hope the weather is a brief anomaly. Local meteorologists predict the temperatures will increase to the lower 90’s by Saturday.
A British scientist says that the implanting of microchips in humans will be something that won’t be seen as optional in the near future.
Dr. Mark Gasson of the University of Reading in Britain says that RFID tags will become so commonplace that everyone will be expected to have one for business and healthcare.
“It’s not possible to interact in society today in a meaningful way without having a mobile phone,” Dr. Gasson told the Sydney Morning Herald. “I think human implants will go along a similar route. It will be such a disadvantage not to have the implant that it will essentially not be optional.”
Gasson is known as the first human being to contract a computer virus after a chip in his arm placed in 2009 that carried a virus, which infected his school’s entire computer network.
“It has the potential to change the very essence of what it means to be human,” Dr. Gasson said.
VeriChip, a company that provides RFID chips to medical facilities, has recently began a campaign encouraging parents to microchip their children to protect their children in the event of kidnapping. However, it has been revealed the company’s chips do not have GPS technology, so they would be useless in an actual search for missing children.
Lori has always been a preparer. She always has something in her purse to treat a burn, etc. Now when she married me, she got to go full tilt with preparing! You may laugh at Lori, but when it’s falling apart, you’ll wish for someone like her around you.
My Grandma Irwin was a preparer too. She always had food – she always had something tucked away. But if you’re going to tuck money away under your mattress or something, make sure it’s in dollar bills because they won’t be making change someday soon. If you have to buy a loaf of bread, you don’t want to have to give a hundred dollar bill.
This is in the first part of what’s coming. So, if you have dollar bills, you can go buy a loaf of bread and they’ll take whatever you have. You’re going to barter for things in the next state (situation). When the power goes out and the machines don’t work… the atms will not work! Continue reading
The moon turned blood red for a few hours early Tuesday morning.
The “blood moon” comes from a total eclipse of the moon due to the earth moving in front of the sun. The red hue is caused by the sunsets around the world allowing a minute level of light to hit the moon’s surface.
The entire time of the transition to a red color takes approximately one hour at the prime viewing locations.
The blood moon is referenced several times in Scripture as coming before the return of Christ. The Book of Acts and the Book of Joel have references to the blood moon. This year’s moon came on the second day of Passover and will be the first of four within the next two years, all happening during the Jewish festivals of Passover and the Feast of the Tabernacles.
There were 300 years before the 20th century with no blood moons. After the four scheduled blood moons over the next two years, another blood moon is not predicted until 2032 according to NASA officials.
Throughout history, God has called true believers in Him to be separate from the systems of the world.
Revelation 18:4 warns us to “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues”. Everything designated as holy has an element of separation about it, set apart from sin and from the world and set apart to God for His service and glory.
God wants a people like Himself while many want to be a people like the world. After all these years, Christians still don’t seem to get that part of the story. There are many false religions and beliefs being promoted and it is very essential that we really test the spirits. Continue reading
For some time now I have been extensively researching about how our daily lives would be affected if the power grids fail or if we experienced an EMP bomb. Most of us growing up in modern America cannot even conceive what this would be like.
It is very startling to realize that we could suddenly be thrust back into the living conditions of several centuries ago. Our current power grids are outdated and yet the demand for their usage continues to increase. Experts who have thoroughly studied the capacity and condition of the grids predict that a breakdown could very well happen in the near future if not corrected. Continue reading
He will also use deceptive signs, and he will be able to perform miracles in his efforts to win people’s allegiance to his boss (13:12–15). This is one reason why I so adamantly caution Christians not to be so enamored with miracles. Some Christians run from church to church, town after town, in search of the next big spiritual flash. Yes, our God does indeed do miracles. But be careful. Not every miracle comes from God! In ancient times, false prophets were able to perform miracles, whether real or through some form of chicanery, and in our time, we’ve seen our share of charlatans.
Now, John warned us that the False Prophet is going to wow people with miracles and “great signs,” even making fire come down out of heaven, as the prophet Elijah did and as the two witnesses to come will do in Jerusalem. Many people will be deceived by the False Prophet. This is the spirit of devils working miracles (16:14).
Although he may look and sound like a lamb, the antichrist’s beastly cohort is devious. He will establish a false religion, bringing all the world’s religions together and forming an umbrella religion designed to worship the antichrist (13:14–15), an eclectic, inclusive, tolerant religion. The only religious beliefs that will not be tolerated will be biblical Christianity. Can you not see that this is beginning to happen in the U.S. and throughout the world? Continue reading
Many teachers of Bible prophecy believe that the antichrist himself will suffer a fatal head wound, but if you look at the scripture carefully, you can easily get a different impression: “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed” (13:3, niv).
Remember, John saw the Beast rising out of the sea, which probably means rising from many peoples. But John used the term “beast” in several ways in Revelation, sometimes talking about the antichrist and at other times talking about the antichrist system, the one-world government system that is against God. Here, I believe the latter is the more correct understanding, that is, this beast is the antichrist system. This one-world government will have ten horns, seven heads, and ten diadems (13:1).
Revelation 17:12–13 tells us that the ten horns are ten kings who will receive power with the Beast for a relatively short time, and their sole purpose is to give their power to the Beast. The seven heads, according to Revelation 17:9–10, are seven mountains on which the harlot rides and seven kings: “Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.” Continue reading
Satan attempts to counterfeit all the good things God has provided, so we should not be surprised that just as there is a Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Enemy has a trinity as well. The players in this evil threesome are Satan (the Dragon), the Beast (the antichrist), and a second beast (the False Prophet). This second beast is a public relations man of sorts who causes the world to worship the Beast and Satan. They are intent on ruling the world, and for a time, it looks as if the devil and his demon-possessed puppets will succeed. But then Jesus Christ returns—and the devil and his motley crew receive everything they deserve.
You will be rewarded and will reign forever with Jesus in a new heaven and a new earth. That’s where we are going, but the going gets extremely rough between now and then.
John saw the antichrist, a world leader who rises to power because of his great oratory skills and his winsome charisma. He will promise people everything they want to hear, but he will ultimately lead them into bondage and death. Continue reading
