“Conditional” Prophecy? A Response to Dr. Heiser

As readers of this blog know, I'm a great fan of Dr. Michael Heiser and recommend his books, particularly The Unseen Realm, to my readers. That's by no means to say that I always agree with him; in fact, when he's out of his specialty and talking about, say, prophecy, there is a lot of room to …

“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 …

The Most Important End-Time Prophecy in the Bible

Yes, that's a rather ambitious title. But I think it's true. I think that there's a particular prophecy that ultimately answers all of the arguments of both preterism and supercessionism. It also stands as a stark warning to the Church. To set understand why this particular prophecy is so important, first you have to understand …

When the World Denies the Resurrection . . . of Israel

Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. Anti-Zionism is saying, "I'm fine with Jews . . . as long as they're under somebody's boot." When this blog first started out, I would often comment on the news of the day. I've not done so as much recently due to not having the time and wanting to focus on my strong suit, …

Thinktank Tuesdays and an Encouraging Note About Israel

Two items for today. The first that I'd like to announce is Thinktank Tuesdays at Beth HaMashiach, which runs from 7:00 - 10:00 pm every Tuesday for at least the duration of the summer. Younger kids--up to and just at Bar Mitzvah age--will be working on plays based on the Bible (their first will be …

“Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky . . .”

". . . but you cannot discern the signs of the times!" So Yeshua answered the Sadducees and Pharisees who demanded yet another sign from Him.  And so I think he would answer the Christians today who ignore the greatest miracle in two thousand years staring them in the face.  They believe in the Resurrection …

“. . . 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. The revelation comes just a day after a committee of scientists warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario …

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 …

UNESCO against the Jews – Israel News, Ynetnews

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. In particular, UNESCO, one of the UN’s most prominent and influential agencies, attacked the renovation of the Mughrabi Bridge …
