Will a court ruling in India pave the way for rebuilding a third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem?

Some are arguing a court case in India may set a precedent for building a third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The Temple Mount in Jerusalem, where the Jewish Temple stood before it was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, now houses the Muslim Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque. Jews have been demanding access to the site for decades and a group has even been created to pave the way for the eventual reconstruction of a third Jewish Temple on the location. Called the Temple Mount Project, it has already constructed much of the furniture needed for the Temple (everything except the Ark of the Covenant) and even ordered architectural drawings for a third Temple. All that is holding this back is that the Muslims control the site. However, the case in India is giving those desiring a third Jewish Temple renewed hope. The India Supreme Court recently ruled that a Mosque built in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh must be moved, because in the 1600s it was built over the site of an ancient …

Revisado por especialistas, estudio médico revela que Dios sana, incluso si usted no cree en la sanidad divina

ENGLISH: Peer-reviewed medical study reveals that God heals even if you don’t believe in divine healing Un estudio publicado en una revista médica, Terapias Complementarias en Medicina , informa sobre la curación milagrosa de un niño cristiano de 16 años de edad. Incluso el título, Reporte de caso de la curación gastroparesia: 16 años con un síndrome crónico resuelto después de la oración de intercesión proximal , revela el papel clave que jugó en esta oración la sanidad divina. Es interesante anotar, que aunque sus padres cristianos creían que Jesús sanaba las personas en la Biblia, ellos no creian que Dios todavía sanaba hoy. ¿Entonces qué pasó? Despues de un par de semanas después de su nacimiento, este niño no identificado fue diagnosticado con gastroparesia. Esta es una condición donde el alimento no se mueve correctamente hacia el estómago y el tracto intestinal y como resultado se queda en el depositado en el estómago durante un período prolongado. Esto puede dar lugar a una serie de síntomas como náuseas y vómitos, dolor y distensión abdominal, falta …

Balaam confronted by Angel of God by Gustav Jager (1808-1871): Wikipedia

La arqueología confirma la existencia de Balaam

ENGLISH: Archaeology confirms the existence of Balaam A pesar de los mejores esfuerzos de los secularistas para desacreditar a la Biblia, la arqueología sigue confirmando que es de hecho un registro exacto de los acontecimientos históricos que tuvieron lugar en el antiguo Israel. Tal vez lo más curioso implica una excavación arqueológica que tuvo lugar en 1967, cuando los arqueólogos Holandeses descubrieron un texto antiguo en una pared en la ciudad Jordana de Deir Alla confirmando la existencia de un vidente llamado Balaam. Para aquellos no familiarizados con la historia, Balaam, un profeta pagano, quien fue contratado por el rey Balac de Moab para maldecir a Israel como nación. Balac estaba sentado en el otro lado del río Jordán preparado para realizar su primer intento fallido de entrar en la Tierra Prometida bajo Moisés ( Números 22 – 24 ). Sin embargo, cuando fue Balaam fue a maldecir a Israel, en lugar les bendijo diciendoles que sólo podía entregar el mensaje que se le habia dado. Aunque dispuesto a maldecir a Israel, Balaam finalmente dio al …

¿Qué pasa cuando se hace una exploración de neuroimagen del cerebro en una persona que habla en lenguas?

ENGLISH: What happens when you do a neuroimage scan of a person’s brain as they speak in tongues? En cierto modo es extraño que el hablar en lenguas se ha convertido en el pararrayos de la discordia en la iglesia. De acuerdo con la Biblia, este es uno de los dones sobrenaturales dados a una persona cuando están llenos del Espíritu Santo. A un lado del espectro hay quienes creen que hablar en lenguas y la mayoría de los otros dones espirituales terminan  con la escritura del Nuevo Testamento, mientras que los pentecostales/ carismáticos creen que es un regalo que todavía necesitamos  hoy en día y algunos creen que es un signo de la llenura del Espíritu Santo – es decir, todas las personas llenas de Espíritu Santo hablarian en lenguas. De acuerdo con la Biblia, el hablar en lenguas llamado tambie glosolalia se produce cuando el Espíritu Santo se mueve sobre una persona e inicia este idioma. En su carta a los Corintios, Pablo lo describió de esta manera: 15 Entonces ¿qué? Oraré con el espíritu, …

It’s yours, so start using it

There was a media story that recently caught my attention. At the end of October, Mexican police arrested 31 suspects in separate raids that allegedly belonged to the La Union Tepito drug cartel and then a judge promptly let most of them go. Beneath one of the houses was an underground labyrinth of tunnels, that also included what appeared to be drug laboratories. During the arrests they found several weapons, grenades and of course drugs. But what caught everyone’s attention was the appearance of satanic altar on the main floor of a house along with 42 humans skulls some of which were covered in blood. Four of the skulls were embedded in the altar. Authorities suspect these skulls were cartel murder victims. The wall behind the altar had several symbols painted on it including a pyramid with a hand on top of it and a goat head with a hexagram drawn between its horns. According to an article in the Daily Mail, people living in the neighborhood said gang members performed satanic rituals every three …

American Bible Society has shipped 8,800 Bibles as part of its pledge to supply a free Bible to Kanye West fans

If there is a story from 2019, that proves the commonly spoken adage that God moves in mysterious ways, it has to be Kanye West’s conversion to Christ. Kanye West is arguably one of the world’s most popular singers and song writers. He has received 21 Grammy’s and is not only one of the most awarded singers of all times with 140 million album sales worldwide he is also among the best-selling singers as well. Shortly after his decision to believe in Christ earlier this year, Kanye started hosing church services across the country attracting large crowds. An altar call at a recent service in Baton Rouge, Louisiana resulted in upwards of 2,000 people publicly saying they wanted to receive Christ. As a result of this growing interest, the American Bible Society pledged to give a free Bible to the first 1,000 Kanye West fan requesting one by October 30, 2019. However, because of the unexpected interest, the American Bible Society is extending its offer of a free Bible to November 22, 2019, and at …

Moloch set up in front of Roman Colosseum: A sign of a growing spiritual conflict?

At the end of September, people visiting the Colosseum in Rome were greeted by one of the most hideous idols of the ancient world — Moloch. The full-sized replica of the idol was the one used in the 1914 silent movie Cabira. The idol was installed as part of an exhibit on Carthage’s history called Carthago: The immortal myth. The idol, that was set up on September 27, 2019, will be displayed at the entrance of the Colosseum until March 29, 2020. The idol was particularly hideous because its was used to sacrifice live children. Life Site News, a Catholic-based news site, reported that the setting up of the idol at the entrance to the Colosseum was particularly disturbing because in 1749 Pope Benedict the XIV declared the Colosseum a sacred site to remember the thousands of Christians that the Romans slaughtered in the Colosseum. One Catholic family visiting the Colosseum were shocked to be greeted by Moloch. Alexandra Clark told Life Site News: “We were so excited the day we decided to go to …

Mayor estudio dice que el divorcio tiene un impacto negativo en los hijos, en especial los niños

English: Major study says divorce has a negative impact on children, particularly boys De acuerdo con un artículo en el Daily Mail , un importante estudio realizado por el Instituto de la University College London de Educación (UCL) ha llegado a la conclusión de que el divorcio puede tener un gran impacto negativo en los niños. Esta investigación confirma muchos estudios anteriores que han revelado que el divorcio tiene el potencial de dañar a los niños. Los estudios han demostrado que el divorcio conduce a tasas más altas de abuso de alcohol y drogas, el aumento de las dificultades en la escuela, una mayor probabilidad de tener problemas emocionales y mentales, el aumento de las dificultades con la ley, las tasas más altas de pobreza y dificultades para mantener un trabajo y estos son problemas que siguen a los niños cuando ellos se convierten en adultos. El estudio realizado por la UCL era bastante amplio, ya que examinó el impacto del divorcio en 6.245 estudiantes entre las edades de tres a catorce años. Los investigadores …

Un estudio revela los beneficios del optimism para la salud del corazón.

English: Study reveals the heart health benefits of optimism Un artículo publicado en el Journal of the American College of Cardiology declaró que el tener una actitud positiva ante la vida da lugar a que una persona tenga un menor riesgo de enfermedades del corazón. En su estudio, el grupo de investigación dirigido por Darwin R. Labarthe, profesor de la Universidad de Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, observó los resultados de varios estudios sobre el impacto del bienestar psicológico de una persona en la salud del corazón. Revelaron que una visión optimista de la vida no sólo da un impacto positivo en la salud del corazón de una persona, sino que esta perspectiva optimista también da lugar a un estilo de vida que beneficia fisicamente la salud del corazón. El estudio incluyó: Un estudio hecho en el 2017 encontró que las mujeres que estaban por encima del 25% de optimismo tenían un menor riesgo del 38% de morir por enfermedades del corazón. Varios estudios recientes descubrieron que las personas que tenían un propósito en su vida …

Estar enfadado y no pecar, pero ….

English: Be angry and sin not, but…. Un estudio realizado por la Universidad de Concordia en Montreal, Canadá llegó a la conclusión de que la ira provoca problemas de salud más serios en la vejez, que la tristeza o la soledad. Los investigadores indicaron que la ira provoca inflamación en el cuerpo, y aunque puede tener resultados beneficiosos en el corto plazo, la inflamación a largo plazo puede llevar a consecuencias graves para la salud. El equipo estudió a 226 adultos, divididos en dos grupos de edades: uno entre los  59 y los 79 años y otro entre los 80 y mayores de 80 años. Los investigadores les hicieron  una serie de preguntas diarias durante una semana sobre los niveles de ira y tristeza que estaban experimentando. A continuación, utilizaron análisis de sangre para determinar los niveles de inflamación en su cuerpo y le preguntaron a cada grupo acerca de las enfermedades crónicas que estaban pasando. A partir de su estudio, los investigadores llegaron a la conclusión de que para los mayores de 80 años, …

Magic Johnson leaves LA Lakers to join Pentecostal church in ministering to African men

Magic Johnson, 60, is considered among the great basketball players in the world. He played professionally with the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers from 1979 to 1991 and in 1996. In March 2019, Magic announced that he would be stepping down as President of Basketball Operations for the Lakers and becoming involved with the ministry of West Angeles Church of God in Christ (COGIC) a Pentecostal church in Los Angeles. In announcing this decision, COGIC’s senior pastor, Bishop Charles Blake, said that the two would be starting an initiative to help African American men lead successful lives. Part of this includes starting a center that will work with boys and families in the inner city. I was struck by this announcement, because I believe this is the heart of God. In Malachi, God says that He wants to restore the hearts of the father to their children and the hearts of their children to their fathers (Malachi 4:6). Children need fathers and I believe fatherless families is becoming an epidemic plaguing modern society. Larry Elder is …

Holy Spirit shows up at Kanye West concert/church service in Baton Rouge, hundreds believe in Jesus

At the end of the Kanye West’s impromptu concert/church service in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday, November 1, 2019, hundreds of people raised their hands indicating they wanted to accept Christ as their Savior. Kanye West is a popular American singer, songwriter and rapper and his conversion to Christ has certainly caught everyone off-guard. He has been holding Sunday services throughout the US. Kanye, who is married to Kim Kardashian, is considered by many as one of the leading singers of the 21st century. It is difficult to know how many people accepted Christ, but it is generally believed between 1,000 and 2,000 people in the concert of 6,000 raised their hands. The concert followed the release of West’s Gospel Album “Jesus is King” which topped the Billboard 200 Chart after its release on October 25, 2019. In an interview with Christian Post, American Bible Society’s Dr John Farquhar Plake said Kanye’s gospel album was Google’s number one trending search the week after its release and this is Kanye’s ninth album to top the chart. …

The battle over Chick-fil-A reaches England

There has been an interesting development surrounding the planned forced closing of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in England. The store, that was England’s first Chick-fil-A restaurant, opened on October 10, 2019 at the Oracle Mall in Reading, England, a city of 320,000 located in Southern England. Almost immediately, it was attacked by LGBT supporters opposed to the chain’s pro traditional family stand. Owned by the Cathy family, who are Christians, the chain has also financially supported Christian organizations such as the Salvation Army. Within a week, the Oracle Mall caved to the demands of the protesters and announced that it would not be renewing the restaurant’s lease, meaning it would be forced to close in six months. Ironically, in a news release announcing the decision, the mall stated that it was doing it so it could create “an inclusive space.” However, some argue that the act of closing the restaurant suggests it is not inclusive. Despite being closed on Sunday (arguable the biggest sales day of the week), so employees can have a family day and …

Was a coincidence a message from God?

A young Iranian man living in Australia became a Christian after a strange coincidence. According to Lee Grady, a popular US Christian writer, in 2016 the young man had decided to watch the film Hacksaw Ridge that told the story of Pfc. Desmond Doss, who volunteered to be a medic during World War II. However, because of his Christian faith, Desmond refused to carry a weapon, but after nearly being kicked out of the army, he was allowed to stay and became the only conscientious objector during World War II to win a Medal of Honor after saving 75 men during the battle for Okinawa. However, during the early part of the movie, the young Iranian man was struck by the words of the Lord’s prayer that were displayed in a picture frame beside Doss. The well-known prayer starts with: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Luke 11:2 KJV Being a Muslim from Iran, the young man had …

Spiritual warfare in Washington, DC?

Reports are circulating again of how a group of self-proclaimed internet witches are planning to put a hex on President Donald Trump and his supporters. This involves an internet driven witch group with approximately 13,000 followers around the world. According to Michael Snyder, members of this group will join together at 11:59 on October 25, 2019, to put a spell on Trump and his followers. Apparently that day was chosen because of its tie to a “waning crescent moon.” Snyder says this “binding spell” is intended to influence Trump. Also referred to as defixiones, they are designed to stop Trump from doing certain things that the witches believe will hurt America. According to the Washington Examiner, the witches have been specifically instructed to conjure up “demons” to carry out this spell: “The ritual calls for the use of an unflattering photo of Trump, a tarot card, a stub of an orange candle, a pin, and a feather. Participants then call on the ‘heavenly hosts, demons of the infernal realms, and spirits of the ancestors” to …

A cute study reveals an odd thing about atheists

There has been an interesting trend in recent years during times of tragedy when people typically express their thoughts and prayers. Atheists are now overtly outraged at these kind gestures, even though studies show that, many people (even those not overtly religious) actually appreciate such expressions, because we are social beings and are strengthened by the larger community’s support. A cute study conducted by researchers from Harvard University and the University of Wyoming wanted to take a closer look at this phenomenon. The study results, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, exposed a very unusual trait among atheists. The researchers studied people from North Carolina who lived through Hurricane Florence that hit in September 2018. It dropped upwards of 35 inches (0.89 meters) of rain causing massive damage largely due to flooding. They gave each of the 482 participants, who ranged from atheists to Christians, $5, who were told they could use the money to gain supportive prayers or thoughts from others after the crisis. Those …

Jesus and the Feast of Tabernacles

The Jewish Feast of Tabernacles also called the Feast of Sukkot or Feast of Booths started this past Monday (October 14, 2019) and will run for seven more days. There are seven feasts instituted in the Old Testament and the Feast of Tabernacles is one of the three pilgrimage festivals, along with Passover and the Festival of Weeks, that requires Jewish males to visit Jerusalem (Deuteronomy 16:16). The Feast of Tabernacles is the last feast on the Jewish Calendar and falls in September or October, five days after the Day of Atonement. The seven feasts fell in this order: Feast of PASSOVER  (Leviticus 23:5) Feast of UNLEAVENED BREAD  (Leviticus 23:6) Feast of FIRST FRUITS  (Leviticus 23:10-11) Feast of PENTECOST  (Leviticus 23:17) Feast of TRUMPETS (Leviticus 23:24) Feast of ATONEMENT (Leviticus 23:27) Feast of TABERNACLES  (Leviticus 23:34) So should Christians celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles or any of the other feasts? I don’t think there is any problem if they do. In fact if we look at the Book of Acts, we see hints that Paul …

Does God still speak through dreams: A warning about Turkey?

Throughout the Bible God used dreams to communicate messages with people. The Pharaoh of Egypt received a dream warning of a coming drought, that Joseph successfully interpreted. Pontius Pilate’s wife received a dream warning her husband about his treatment of Jesus at the Lord’s trial. God used dreams in both the Old and New Testament to communicate with people, so should we be surprised that God might warn Christians today through dreams. If so maybe we need to take heed of a dream received by American Pastor Andrew Brunson while imprisoned in a Turkish prison after being accused of terrorism by the government. Andrew and his wife had served for 25 years prior as missionaries in Turkey working largely among the Kurds along the Syrian Turkish border. Brunson was eventually released from prison in October 2018 and returned to the US. Brunson received this dream in December 2016 while in prison. In an interview with Fox News, Brunson said: “In the dream, Turkey, Iran and Russia began to move together in a very dark alliance.” …

Is the Holy Spirit working in Kanye West’s life?

Pop superstar Kanye West’s conversion to Christ has certainly caught everyone’s attention. Secular media are broadcasting stories about the church services he is holding and of course the religious media is doing the same. Some, both religious and secular, have questioned the sincerity of Kanye’s faith. But a recent interview with Adam Tyson, a California pastor, on Pure Flix has me increasingly convinced that the Holy Spirit is doing a work in the pop star’s life. Tyson made contact with Kanye, when the pop star attended the pastor’s Placerita Bible church in Santa Clarita, California, one Sunday morning. Of course, I immediately suspected Tyson must be one of those mega-pastors with thousands of people attending every Sunday. It wasn’t. Tyson’s church has 300 members. But through this initial visit, Tyson developed a relationship with Kanye and is now regularly preaching at Kanye’s services held around the US. But in his Pure Flix interview, Tyson recalled what Kanye said to him: “I was just under the weight of my sin, and I was being convicted that …

UPDATE: The Babylonian coincidence?

Maybe it’s all just a coincidence, but one of the favorite Old Testament stories may have a strange link to the Book of Revelation and a case being brought before the US Supreme Court. The Bible story involves Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego being thrown into a fiery furnace because they refused to bow and worship a giant idol. The Jews had been taken in captivity by the Babylonians and an edict was passed requiring people of all nations to bow and worship a massive idol set up in the city. Refusal to worship would result in death by burning (Daniel 3:4-6). Because of their faith in Jehovah, three Jewish boys Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused and were immediately sentenced to death. They stood for their faith and were thrown into a fiery furnace where their lives were miraculously spared. Babylon was one of the great enemies of Israel and was eventually destroyed. But as we look to the New Testament, Babylon makes a second appearance in the Book of Revelation, a written record of the …

The ability to forgive others is birthed in fully understanding our forgiveness

A Dallas jury recently found former police officer Amber Guyger, 31, guilty of killing Botham Jean, a believer, and worship leader at a Church of Christ in Dallas. Though the prosecutor was asking for a sentence of 28 years, Guyger was sentenced to ten years in prison. It was a bizarre story. Guyger lived in the same apartment building as Botham. She was a police officer and had just finished her shift in September 2018 and was returning home. But according to her testimony, distracted by texts, she inadvertently mistook Botham’s apartment for her own. Apparently Botham’s door was unlocked and thinking this was her apartment, Guyger was immediately suspicious that someone had broken in. When Botham stood up, thinking he was an intruder, Guyger pulled her gun, and shot Botham, killing him. There were obviously a lot of questions about this senseless killing and many were upset that Guyger hadn’t received a longer sentence. In fact, there were protesters outside the court room demanding a longer prison term. But after the sentencing came down, …

Is it time to rein in the man-made global warming hysteria?

The recent arrival of Greta Thunberg, an environmental activist based out of Sweden, has certainly caught everyone’s attention. The 16-year-old’s fearful, emotional and angry presentation to the UN was viewed by millions as she warned of an imminent environmental apocalypse if governments didn’t immediately reduce CO2 emissions. And she is not alone, many young people are feeling a similar anxiety. According to an article entitled “Climate change poses mental health risks to children and teens” published on Science News for Students, the fear mongering over climate change is causing mental health issues for students. Unfortunately, the discussion of global warming has become so politicized, it is almost impossible to separate the rhetoric from the truth. But in the midst of all this, you may have missed a few major news stories that were not the flavor of the day, so basically ignored by most of the main line media. They were calling into question all the hysteria surrounding the issue of climate change. Nobody denies that global warming is taking place. What is questioned is …

26 | Three Bible passages that might warn of a nuclear war in the end times

One question that has lurked at the back of my mind is this: Does the Bible warn of Nuclear war in the end times? It’s not a topic that many of us want to talk about, but in my study of the Bible I have seen hints of it. In this podcast we look at three Bible passages that suggest there will be a nuclear war during the end times.

Documentary tells of the explosive growth of the house church movement in Iran

According to a documentary released in August, the explosive growth of Christianity in Iran is a result of a rapidly expanding house church movement with most being led by women. The documentary entitled Sheep Among Wolves was produced by Frontier Alliance International (FAI) and looked at the growth of Christianity in Iran perhaps one of the most repressive regimes in the world. And we know Christianity is growing because of the repeated public statements made by Iranian officials and religious leaders in recent years warning of Christianity’s growth. In their video, FAI explained what was behind the unusual growth. In its trailer, the documentary noted: “The Iranian awakening is a rapidly-reproducing discipleship movement that owns no property or buildings, has no central leadership and is predominantly led by women.” In the video they were forced to disguise the Iranian believers because of fear of arrest. One Iranian Christian said “What if I told you the mosques are empty inside Iran.” He went on to say that the political and the elites are the ones who …

Christian singer Francesca Battistelli healed while pregnant

Francesca Battistelli, 34, a Grammy winning Christian singer recently shared a story of how God miraculously healed her of an ovarian cyst in the middle of her pregnancy. Francesca grew up in a musical family with both her mom and dad involved in theatrical singing in New York. Though, she expected to head in the same direction, Francesca veered off into a successful musical career, winning a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song in 2016 with her song “Holy Spirit.” Recently, the mother of four shared a testimony on Instagram of God’s miraculous healing. She was ten weeks pregnant and woke up in “excruciating pain.” When the pain intensified over the next couple of hours, on the advice of her midwife, Francesca went to the hospital emergency. However, by the time she arrived, the pain had started to subside. Francesca knew from previous tests that she had a cyst on one of her ovaries. But the hospital tests revealed that this cyst was now 10 cm in size, about the size of a large …

Study suggests that women who bottle up anger have a higher risk of a stroke

According to researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, feeling resentful or bottling up your anger may result in an increased risk of stroke for women. Strokes occur when plaque build up in arteries results in a reduction of blood flow to the brain as the arteries narrow. An additional contributor is Atherosclerosis that occurs when chunks of plaque break away increasing the potential of a blockage. According to the Daily Mail, that reported on the study, strokes are the third highest cause of death in America and fourth highest in England Women are also more vulnerable to strokes than men and struggle with recovery when strokes do occur. In their study, the researchers analyzed 304 non-smoking women between the ages of 40 and 60. They asked them a series of questions that included if they tended to put other people’s needs first over their own and if they were likely to express their true feelings about a situation. The researchers then did ultra sounds on the women’s arteries and discovered that women who did not …

‘Dame esa montaña’: Vivir la vida con la actitud de Caleb

English: ‘Give me that mountain’: Living life with Caleb’s attitude De acuerdo con el rey Salomón cómo una persona piensa, determina la forma en que vive la vida: pues como piensa dentro de sí, así es. Proverbios 23: 7a LBLA Pero hay una advertencia importante en este verso, porque Salomón añade como un hombre “piensa en su corazón,” por que asi es él. Este es un paso más allá del pensamiento, tenemos que creer. Jesús dijo que si decimos que este monte sea echado en el mar ( Marcos 11:23 ), y no dudamos en nuestro corazón, que se llevará a cabo. No es suficiente pensarlo, tenemos que creerlo. La fé y la creencia marcan la diferencia. Investigadores de la Universidad de Seúl, en Corea del Sur encontraron que puede haber una conexión directa entre lo que las personas mayores creyeron y la manera como realmente se sintieron. Lo que ellos creyeron en sus últimos años directamente impacto cómo vivíeron su vida. Según el Daily Mail , un equipo de investigación escogiò a 68 personas entre …

Dios va a encontrar la manera

English version: God will find a way A pesar de los seculares y los activistas de izquierda que estan tratando de poner a la iglesia en un rincón oscuro de irrelevancia, Dios va a encontrar una manera de hacer llegar el mensaje de Jesús al mundo. Durante las últimas tres semanas, dos mega artistas, el primero una estrella del pop y el segundo un artista de hip hop, pusieron a Dios al frente y a su fé en El al centro. Yo los llamo rocas de rock por una razón: Es una referencia de lo que pasó cuando Jesús entró en Jerusalén montado en un potro, el cual sería su último viaje. A medida que el Señor entraba en la ciudad, la gente gritaba fuertemente: “¡Bendito el Rey que viene en el nombre del Señor!”, y los fariseos en la multitud que estaban tratando de tranquilizar y callar a todos sin lograrlo, finalmente gritaron a Jesús ordenandole que callara a sus discípulos. ( Lucas 19: 28-47 ). Jesús respondió que si ellos no gritaban, entonces …
