“But everyone will be very, very surprised that he is of all people the Mashiach.”

First, thanks to John Kelly Sartwell for bringing this story to my attention. It's a very remarkable one, to say the least. As 15-year-old secular Israeli boy named Natan had a near death experience on Monday, September 28, 2015 and returned to life describing Biblical prophecies about the End of Days. In a video posted …

Am I back or not?

Okay, okay, I'm a lousy blogger.  Hashem knows I get ticked off when the blogs and podcasts stop updating regularly (Derek and Sharon, I'm looking at you!), so you'd think I'd be better about it, but no.  I don't just miss a few posts now and then, I go completely off the radar for half …

“. . . For All Flesh Had Corrupted Its Way Upon the Earth.”

Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories. The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases.

Will the Real Nakba Please Stand Up! | FrontPage Magazine

Now here's a fascinating bit of history I wasn't fully aware of: In fact, from the 1880’s onward Arab nationalists protested the use of the term “Palestine” because “Palestine,” as they explained, was really southern Syria (as-Suriyeh al-janubiyeh). Even the most vitriolic and vociferous Arab nationalist in Southern Syria, the Hajj Amin el-Husseini, opposed the …

And the world's war against the Jews continues apace: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted a decision calling on Israel to immediately cease all archaeological works in the Old City of Jerusalem.

UN investigator regrets anti-Semitic cartoon – Israel Jewish Scene, Ynetnews

A United Nations human rights expert investigating Israel's treatment of Palestinians expressed regret on Monday for posting an anti-Semitic cartoon on his blog, but rejected calls to resign his role saying critics were using a "careless" mistake to attack him. US academic Richard Falk said he didn't spot what he called "the anti-Semitic connotations" when …

‘Rapture’ real aftermath: Beheadings, shootings, mass graves

Over here in the States, Harold Camping's failed Rapture prediction mostly resulted in joking around at the expense of his followers--and to a lesser extent, at the expense of the Body of Messiah in general.  Elsewhere in the world, however, Camping's campaign had far more dire consequences, as World Net Daily reports: Prasch routinely travels …

New Apostolic Reformation and IHOP Summary

Wrong IHOPI'd been pondering for a while whether I should post a summary of the New Apostolic Reformation and IHOP's (International House of Prayer) history and background, especially since I've mentioned them a couple of times, but hadn't had the time to do the research.  Fortunately, Herescope's latest post just did the hard work for …

Good News for Israel, for a Change

Given the amount of bad news floating around out there, I'm happy to have come across this recent article by Israpundit: Israel is Sitting Pretty.  Just a few highlights with my own thoughts: Israel has successfully made the case that such a unilateral move by the PA [to establish a Palistinian state by U.N. fiat] …

Herescope: IHOP Enters Dominion/Christian Right Politics

As I sit at my desk listening to the sounds of fireworks celebrating the birth of a great nation, I'm also reading the Herescope blog, which I forgot to link to in my post on Thyatira where I mentioned the New Apostolic Reformation.  Here's the latest news: Texas Governor Rick Perry, in an historic move …
