Police are investigating a number of arson fires outside churches located in Mesa, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix.
According to an article on Charisma News, there have been six fires reported. Three were set in May at Mesa Baptist Church, two set in June at the East Mesa Christian Church and Pilgrim Lutheran Church and one in July at Calvary Baptist Church.
It doesn’t seem these were deliberate attempts to set the churches on fire as they were set in front of church doors, but far enough back not to affect the building.
The fires may have actually been a form of satanic sacrifice. (more…)
In 1 John 2:18, the Bible warns that there will be many antichrists, before the final one shows at the end of the age. But, perhaps the first reference to an antichrist is found centuries earlier in the first few chapters of Genesis.
After the flood, God commanded Noah and his family to spread out and fill the earth. Instead Noah’s descendants congregated in the valley of Mesopotamia. At this point, they were still one language (Genesis 11:1).
The driving force behind this was a man named Nimrod. The word “Nimrod” literally means “we shall rebel.” The name itself sets the stage for what follows. (more…)
In my earlier post, I discussed a passage in Revelation 2:12-13, that speaks of a specific place where Satan lived at that time in history — Pergamum (also written Pergamon).
And to the angel of the church of Pergamum write: I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is and you hold fast My name and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where satan dwells (Revelation 2:12-13 NASV)
The city was not only the dwelling place of Satan, but Satan’s throne was located there as well. At the time the Apostle John wrote Revelation, the city was home to a massive altar dedicated to Zeus. Some have suggested the Pergamum altar was in fact the throne of Satan referred to in Revelation. This altar simply manifested a spiritual reality — Pergamum was Satan’s capital.
It is not a coincidence that in the natural realm Pergamum was also the capital of Asia. Satan’s presence in this key city gave him an opportunity to influence the political process.
After Christianity came into dominance in the Roman Empire, the altar fell into disrepair. The temple was turned into a fortress and partly destroyed during many battles. The altar gradually disappeared covered by debris and dirt. (more…)
In a December 2013 interview with The Guardian, a mortician named only as Lucas, living in San Pedro, Honduras said:
“Satan himself lives here in San Pedro. People here kill people like they are nothing more than chickens.”
With a population of only 900,000, the city averages 20 murders a day. This works out to a murder rate of 173 per 100,000 more than double the country’s national average which is 85.5 per 100,000. New York City in comparison has 3.5 murders/100,000.
According to the article, San Pedro has the highest murder rate of any region in the world outside a war zone. (more…)
Steven Jacobsen, a geophysicist from Northwestern University, and seismologist Brandon Schmandt from the University of New Mexico believe they have found a body of water far below the earth’s surface. The results of their study were published in Science.
This group was sending seismic waves into the ground to discover what lies below. At 700 kms (400 miles) beneath the surface, they ran into a layer of ringwoodite. Their tests suggested it also contained water. The temperature and pressure at this level would cause the water to sweat out of the ringwoodite.
Jocobsen said ringwoodite has a unique crystal structure that allows it to soak up water like a sponge. The two speculated if just 1% of this ringwoodite mass contained water, it would be three times the size of the earth’s oceans. (more…)
A press release by the Meteo France says this past June was the coldest June on record since the its Antarctic Dumont d’Urville Station station was set up in 1952.
According to Meteo France, the average temperature in June was -22.4c (-8.3F). This was 6.6c (11.9F) degrees lower than any previous June. It is winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
Not only that, but June 2014 was also the second coldest month recorded behind only September 1953 which averaged -23.5c (-10.3F). (more…)
In the West, when teaching our children math we have them memorize endless multiplication tables. Multiplication and long division can be a complicated process.
However, there is an ancient way of doing math, that is quite different from the way we do it and in some ways simpler. All you need is the ability to double numbers and basic addition. If you can do that you can easily multiply and divide any set of figures.
This video reveals the method that the ancient Egyptians and Chinese used to multiply and divide. Oddly, it is also the way modern computers calculate math.
Moses grew up in the Pharaoh’s court. The Bible tells us that he learned the wisdom of Egypt. This was undoubtedly the way Moses was taught to multiply and divide.
