97 | How God conned the Egyptian Pharaoh using his own beliefs

In this podcast, I discuss two incidents in the Exodus account, when God delivered Israel out of Egypt, that has always puzzled me.

Video: A Jewish man’s analysis of the Shroud of Turin

I have never been exactly sure what to think about the Shroud of Turin, which some believe was the burial cloth used to cover Christ’s body in the tomb. The shroud has an image of a man somehow etched in the cloth, that not only includes blood stains but seems to reveal the wounds of a man who had been crucified. Some believe this image was somehow burned into the cloth at Christ’s resurrection. Note: burn is the wrong word to use to describe how it happened. Though I have tended to reject it as legitimate, this video by Barrie Schwortz, who was part of a team of experts called in to examine the cloth several years back, has caused me to at least reconsider my position. Schwortz is convinced of its legitimacy. But here is the catcher, he is not only Jewish, but he was also a skeptic when asked to help examine the shroud.

WEF speaker told not to use the words God, religion or faith in his talk about ‘keeping the faith’

At the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting held in Davos, Switzerland, the organization actually held a session on ‘keeping the faith’. However, there was one major caveat, the speaker, Farhan Latif, was told not to mention ‘God’, ‘faith’ or ‘religion’ during his speech, LifeSite News reports. “Before I jump in, I want to offer a trigger warning for the audience. As I was preparing for this session … they told me, ‘Don’t use the words religion, faith, and God,’ and so I just ask people to translate that to ‘mindfulness,’ ‘purpose-driven,’ ‘spirituality,’” said Latif who serves as president of the El-Hibri Foundation. It was probably a joke and though Latif’s comments were met with laughter from the crowd, some wonder if it represents a deeper sentiment about removing God from any discussions about the future of the world. As Emily Manigiarcina explains in her article for LifeSite, God is a threat to WEF’s globalist agenda writing: In fact, God and authentic religion are a threat to the WEF’s agenda, not only because they …

A bus-sized asteroid will miss earth by 2,100 miles on Friday

It’s not mountain-sized, like the one the Apostle John saw in his vision of the end-times, but a bus-sized asteroid that will miss earth by only 2,100 miles (ca. 3,380 km) later this week. The asteroid, named 2023 BU, which is travelling at 33,300 miles (ca. 53,591 km) an hour, will skim by earth on Friday, Jan 27, 2023. According to NASA, its current trajectory indicates it will not hit the earth, but nevertheless, it is the fourth-closest recorded distance an asteroid has been to our planet. 2023 BU was only picked up by NASA the past weekend. At 12.4 feet (3.78 m) by 27.8 feet (8.47 m) in size, it is about half the size of the meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013. NASA added that 2023 BU would probably burn up if it did veer into our planet. So call it a warning shot across the bow, as the Apostle John warned of asteroids hitting earth during the end times apocalypse causing significant damage READ: Huge asteroid the size of a …

Why Westerners are not receiving dreams and visions like those in the Middle East?

In Joel 2:28, the prophet spoke of a day when God would pour out His Holy Spirit on all flesh, and added that it would be evidenced by people having dreams and visions. I have written several articles on how people in the Middle East have had their lives transformed by God-given dreams and visions. And while this seems to be happening in other parts of the world, it does not seem to be taking place, at least to the same degree, in Western countries. I have a couple of friends who regularly receive dreams and visions. In my case, I have had only one, which I would describe as a warning dream. It resulted in a positive, spiritually life-altering experience as my wife and I moved to another city. Yet, for most Westerners, myself included, these are rare experiences in Christian circles. In an interview with Faithwire, Rev. Lazarus Yeghnazar, the founder of Transform Iran, made an interesting statement that may explain why. If he was in a meeting with Iranian believers and asked …

Man allegedly ordered to leave Mall of America over ‘Jesus Saves’ message on his shirt

According to reports, a man wearing a shirt with a Christian message printed on the front and back was allegedly ordered by security to either remove his shirt or leave the Mall of America, Church Leaders.com reports. In a video posted on YouTube and other social media platforms, two security approached the man wearing a shirt that says “Jesus saves” on the front and “Jesus is the only way” on the back. Alleging that people were offended by the message, the guards told the man that he needed to either remove the shirt or leave the mall. “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people,” says a guard who appears to be from the Mall of America. The guard added that the shirt is ‘religious soliciting’ and this is not allowed in the mall. According to Church Leaders, the confrontation sparked some debate on social media, with some suggesting the man should have turned the other cheek and taken off the shirt, while others stated he needed to stand up for religious freedom. The …

It’s confirmed: The Moabite Stone does mention King David

The Mesha or Moabite Stone was discovered in 1868 and is currently on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris. The monument, which is 3.8 feet (1.15 meters) high, provides a description of the battle, from a Moabite perspective, that King Mesha had with Israel, an event recorded in 2 Kings 3. Discovered 17 miles east of the Dead Sea, the stone was heavily damaged after discovery but not before researchers created a paper mache copy. Since its discovery, the stone has been extensively studied, because of its connection to the Biblical story. Many claimed it actually referred to King David, Jehovah and the altar of David. However, due to the damage, this has been disputed, because in several instances letters were missing, and researchers were left filling in the blanks with educated guesses. There are some archaeologists who don’t believe that King David and King Solomon actually existed, and this stone provided concrete evidence they did. In 2015, researchers from the University of California’s West Semitic Research Project took Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) scans …

Prayer makes the difference

On the heels of Buffalo Bills receiver, Damar Hamlin, nearly dying during a game with the Cincinnati Bengals, former NFL running back, Peyton Hillis, 36, was also on his deathbed after saving his children from drowning on a Florida beach. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition but is now on the road to recovery. In an Instagram Post, Hamlin’s girlfriend, Angela Cole asked for people to continue praying for Hamlin because he still has a long way to go, The Blaze reports. Cole continued that prayer, “truly makes all the difference.” But she wasn’t the only one to credit, prayer for making a difference, so did Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III. “There is POWER in prayer!” Griffin tweeted. “Peyton Hillis is off the ventilator and doing much better in his recovery. Awesome job by the medical professionals caring for him.” And of course, we know of the prayers that went up Hamlin after he collapsed to the ground after tackling a Bengal receiver, requiring CPR to restart his heart. This …

Canada: Two in critical condition after allegedly being shot by a man out on bail

Similar to what is happening in the US, alleged felons, who have been released on bail, go out and commit new crimes, including murder. In this incident reported by the Toronto Sun, the alleged attacker was out on bail for gun charges: Not even 24 hours after burying OPP Const. Greg Pierzchala, who was allegedly shot by a man who had skipped bail on gun charges, a major crime incident occurred in London on Thursday that saw a man in a retail store shot in the chest and his female co-worker hit in the head with a blunt object that sources say was a hammer. Both victims are in hospital in critical condition. The woke left’s soft-on-crime approach endangers innocent people. In a separate incident: READ: WARMINGTON: Yet another innocent person shot by gunman on bail People are demanding the names of judges who are making these decisions. One of the largest mass murders in Canadian history was committed by a man out on parole. Apparently, the parole board stated that Myles Sanderson would ‘not …

We can’t find aliens, because they all killed themselves off, study suggests

Maybe it is a sign of desperation. But researchers have come up with a new theory on why we have been unable to find any signs of alien life in our vast universe, it is because these great advanced alien civilizations have killed themselves off. “Why aren’t they sending telescope satellites through our part of space?” Caroline Delbert writes in her article for Popular Mechanics. “And how can it be that out of all the planets and systems we’ve peeked into so far, we’ve seen nothing? She then cites a study by three researchers from Caltech and a high school student who concluded that we aren’t finding aliens, because these ancient civilizations have wiped themselves out. “They could even be extinct,” Delbert explains. “In fact, the research includes parameters for extinction and the idea of “self annihilation,” a probability that could be extraordinarily high.” When you remove God from the equation for the development of life on earth, and believe it happened through natural evolution, you have to conclude that it could easily happen anywhere. …

Will the opening of the Pool of Siloam to visitors pave the way for the return of the Jewish Messiah?

The Israel Antiquities Authority has just announced that the Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem will soon be open to the public, Fox News reports. The pool was initially built 2,700 years ago, when King Hezekiah diverted the springs outside Jerusalem into the city during an invasion by the Assyrians to prevent the invading army from having access to the water (2 Kings 20:20; 2 Kings 18; 2 Chronicles 32). It was renovated several times over the following centuries and was approximately 1.25 acres in size. It is 225 feet (ca. 69 m) wide and three sides had steps going down to the water that came from the diverted Gihon springs. The pool functioned as a mitzvah for the Jews, as part of their cleansing ritual, before entering the Temple. For Christians, it is best known for its connection to Jesus’ healing of a blind man recorded in John 9:1-9. In the account, Jesus had encountered a man blind from birth and his disciples asked if he was blind because of his parent’s sin or the …

Alleged serial thief let off by progressive NYC DA, steals again

After a left-wing DA in New York City, Alvin Bragg, released a man charged with 23 incidents of shoplifting in November with no bail, as gratitude Wilfredo Ocasio allegedly went out and stole from 27 more times, the Post Millennial reports. Ocasio who allegedly tends to steal from the same stores has been arrested and charged with 27 incidents of shoplifting from three stores amounting to over $5,000 in goods. Even if convinced of all charges, he would only serve two years. In November, it was alleged that Ocasio had stolen 23 times, but was only charged with two. Ocasio, who had previously done time for rape and robbery, was then released by the DA. The president of the NYPD Detective’s Endowment Association, Paul DiGiacomo said, “Nobody should be surprised that Mr. Ocasio has been once again arrested — this time on 27 [petit] larceny charges. Why would he stop when there are absolutely no consequences?” READ: NYC serial thief accused of 23 more shoplifts after getting let off by progressive DA And an interesting …

Majority of Americans believe that Christians should not be forced to compromise their faith

According to a recent survey conducted by Summit Ministries/McLaughlin and Associates, a significant majority of Americans do not believe that Christians should have to compromise their faith in the face of woke, left-wing ideology, Breitbart reports. This included being forced to compromise their values in the areas of traditional marriage, trans issues and critical race theory. The survey conducted between Dec 9 and 14, found that 68% of Americans do not believe that Christians should be forced to compromise in these areas. But this poll also revealed that a significant percentage, 32%, believe that Christians should. However, when politics were factored in the results took an interesting turn. The more left-wing an individual was the less likely they were to believe that American Christians should have the freedom of religion. The survey found that while 78% of Republicans believe that Christians should have this freedom, only 41% percent of Democrats felt the same way. In fact, the same percentage of Democrats, 41%, believed that Christians should be forced to compromise their faith. Among independents, a …

Is Putin’s ‘Satan,’ the Apostle John’s ‘Wormwood’?

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has just revealed his latest intercontinental ballistic nuclear weapon (ICBM), which could be in active service as soon as January 2023. The missile that actually leaves the earth’s atmosphere before reentering and unleashing its payload, can carry 15 nuclear warheads which can individually target other sites. The missiles that can reportedly travel 16,000 miles (ca. 25,750 km) an hour could reach Britain in a matter of minutes. Of course, Putin did this in an effort to terrorize and intimidate the rest of the world because of the failure of his invasion of Ukraine. But what struck me is its name. Though it is officially called RS-28 Sarmat, the Russians have nicknamed it Satan-2. In other words, if he doesn’t get his way, Putin is threatening to unleash Satan on the world. And sometimes I have wondered if in his vision of the apocalypse, recorded in the Book of Revelation, if the Apostle John saw Satan-2 in action. John had a different name for it though, he called it wormwood. But in …

Sign of the Times: Earthquake rocks California

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit Northern California early Tuesday morning (Dec 20, 2022), the New York Post reports. The earthquake’s epicenter was seven miles southwest of Ferndale, which has a population of 15,000. Earthquakes in the 6.0 range can cause poorly constructed walls to collapse and fireplaces are also particularly vulnerable to damage. Though there were no immediate reports of damage, approximately 65,000 people in the area are without power because of the quake. Many homes found their floors littered as shelves and cupboards were emptied because of the shaking. Perhaps coincidentally, a similar-sized quake (6.2 magnitudes), hit California a year ago to the day. READ: Huge 6.4-magnitude quake rocks Northern California We know that earthquakes will play a significant role in the end times, as Jesus warned of many ‘great (Greek mega)’ earthquakes leading up to His return (Luke 21:11). In his vision of the last days recorded in the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John also mentioned several earthquakes (Rev 6:12-13, Rev 16:18, Rev 11:13). Many suggest California is a prime candidate for …

Small hand-sized stone declared one of the great Biblical archaeological finds

Gershon Galil, a professor at Israel’s Haifa University’s Institute for Biblical Studies and Ancient History has declared a stone the size of a person’s hand as one of the greatest archaeological finds in recent years, CBN reports. The inscription on the stone from the 8th century BC, not only named one of Judah’s greatest kings, Hezekiah, but it also listed some of his accomplishments, which confirm the Biblical reports of his achievements. It took ten years for Galil and Eli Shukron from the Bible and Ancient History institute to decipher the stone’s inscription discovered in Old Jerusalem in 2007. They found that it not only listed the construction of the Siloam pool connected to the redirecting of the Gihon springs into Jerusalem but also spoke of Hezekiah’s religious reforms and as well of his successful attack on the Philistines. The Bible reports that when Hezekiah realized that King Sennacherib of Assyria was invading Israel, he ordered his men to block the Gihon springs that were flowing outside the city walls. They then dug a massive …

She had given up praying for healing, and then God …

While she was taking skiing lessons as a young girl, Elizabeth Chatka found herself struggling to keep her balance. She later went to the doctor and after a series of tests was diagnosed with Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSH), CBN reports, FSH is an inherited disorder caused by a genetic mutation, hence no known cure, that results in a weakening of the muscles particularly in the face, shoulders and arms. Though not deadly, 20% of cases result in people having to use a wheelchair. It is a rare condition with less than 40,000 cases reported in the US, and it usually shows up in people between the ages of 15 – 30. Because of her condition Elizabeth struggled with constant pain and found herself needing to rest while others were out having fun. But she had grown up in a Christian home and for several years sought God for healing. But nothing changed. She eventually married and while both she and her husband continued praying for healing, Elizabeth noticed that her symptoms were getting worse. At …

Lost at sea: man credits God for sustaining him during 20-hour ordeal

James Grimes, 28, had joined 18 members of his family on a Carnival cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico over the American Thanksgiving weekend. He had just won an air guitar contest, and around 11 pm told his sister he was going to use the washroom, CBN reports. Grimes, who is from Lafayette, Alabama, has no idea what happened next because all he remembers is waking up in the ocean with no cruise ship in sight. His family reported him missing the next day at around noon. The Coast Guard was contacted and started to search a 7,000-mile area. After spending nearly 20 hours in the Gulf, his rescue has been described as nothing short of a miracle. The man who pulled Grimes from the water said he was in such rough shape, he would not have lasted another few minutes. But the next morning as Grimes watched the sun rise stranded in the middle of the ocean, he wasn’t alone as the Lord was with him. “When I came to, regained consciousness, I …

EU to release new digital ID in 2023, critics call it a ‘Trojan horse’

The European Union (EU) is reportedly on track to release a digital ID for its citizens in the 27 countries that make up the EU, CBN reports. Concerns are already being expressed about the new ID, which will come in the form of an app downloaded onto a person’s phone, and could potentially contain a person’s medical and financial information. Some believe it will give governments and bureaucrats access to people’s personal information and others have described it as a ‘Trojan Horse’ that could easily open the door to government tyranny. While the EU insists the ID will be voluntary and people are free to download the information they want to the app, critics point to the COVID passport as evidence of how quickly that can change. A member of EU’s parliament, Cristian Terhes, who grew up under Hungarian communism had this to say about the new ID: “Clearly we are witnessing right now, the ‘Chinafication’ of Europe, because we see what is happening in China right now with the social credit score, where the …

Nearly 40% of Americans believe the world has entered the end times

A recent poll by Pew Research reports that 39% of Americans believe that we have now entered the end times, Lifeway Research reports. But the survey also revealed the theological divide in Christianity regarding the last days Pew pointed out that there were essentially two basic views represented in the group who believe we are in the end times. This included 14% who believed that Jesus’ return is imminent, and that the world will worsen until the Lord’s second coming. The remaining 25% are described as all other end times believers. There are basically three views of the end times among Christians, and they all center on the Millennium or the 1,000-year reign of Christ recorded in Revelation 20:2-7, when Christ will rule the earth. During this 1,000-year reign, governments will submit to Christ’s rule. And this combined with Satan being bound will result in an unparalleled time of peace and economic prosperity. At the end of this age, Satan will be released and dealt with once and for all by God and the angels. …

The power of miracles

Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city. — Acts 8:5-8 By Rick Renner On April 12, I told a bit of this story, but it so impacted my life that I want to share it in greater detail today and give you the reason why miracles often occur on a massive scale, or among large crowds of people. It was the conclusion of five amazing days of meetings — the first large public meeting that Denise and I had ever conducted in the former USSR. Of the 32,000 people who attended the event, 7,000 people came forward to receive Christ and 926 people received water baptism — and we witnessed scores …

NASA issues warning of a potential asteroid hit on March 11, 2023

NASA is warning that an asteroid, with the power to wipe out a city, is potentially on a collision course with earth, Israel365 News reports. The asteroid known as 2005 DE224 is 177 feet (ca. 54 meters) in size and according to NASA’s calculations could possibly hit earth on March 11, 2023. If it misses, its circuitous route will bring it back into the earth’s orbit in 2028, 2029, 2030 and 2064. NASA notes that typically an asteroid of this size would burn up when it hits the earth’s atmosphere, but because this one is travelling so fast, 61,000 mph (ca. 98,170 km/h), it would instantly pass through and smash into our planet If DE224 does hit, it would produce a crater 1000 meters wide and have enough power to destroy a city. At this point, NASA suggests the chances are remote, putting it a one in 500,000. For the past several years, NASA has been tracking asteroids that have the potential to hit the earth, causing massive devastation. To fit that criterion, the asteroid …

One million born-again Jews worldwide, study reports

According to an article on by Joel Rosenberg, on All Israel website, it is estimated that there are approximately one million Jews around the world who have become Christians by putting their faith in Christ. This is based on a study by Lifeway, that found there are approximately 871,000 people of Jewish descent in America who believe Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. In addition, a study by Dr. Erez Soref, Israel College of the Bible, estimates there are about 30,000 Messianic Jews living in Israel. This puts the number of Messianic Jews in these two countries at around 900,000. According to World Population Review (WPR), there are approximately 15 million Jews worldwide, though some estimate the number could be over 17 million. The disagreement on the size of the Jewish population stems from how a person defines a Jew, which is traditionally determined by being born to a Jewish mother. In 2022, WPR reports there are 6.8 million Jews living in Israel and 5.7 million living in the US, but WPR notes on its website …

World’s largest active volcano awakens

After being dormant for nearly 40 years, the world’s largest active volcano, Mauna Loa, located on the Big Island in Hawaii, has apparently come to life sending a stream of ash into the atmosphere and darkening the skies. According to the US Geological Survey, it erupted late Sunday night, Nov 28, 2022, bringing with it dozens of earthquakes. Though there have been no reports of lava flows from the eruption, the skies turned amber-red because of the ash. Mauna Loa, which last erupted in 1984, is part of a group of five volcanos, located on the largely rural Big Island of Hawaii. The last time it erupted, its lava flows reached within five miles of the city of Hilo. The mention of the sky turning red is reminiscent of the Prophet Joel’s warning of columns of smoke, the iconic symbol of volcanos, that would bring with them fire, blood (death), a red moon and darkened sun. 30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. …

Supernatural Patience and Endurance

By Rick Renner

Here is an important fact to know about the apostolic ministry: God didn’t leave it to us to guess who is a true apostle and who is not! I’m thankful for that! In Second Corinthians 12:12 the apostle Paul wrote by the Holy Spirit about the signs that will help us discern correctly whether an apostle is in our midst. He said, “Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.”

The anniversary of the Piltdown fossil (missing link) fraud exposure

Nov. 21, 2022 marks the anniversary of the day, the skull of the Piltdown man, hailed as the missing link between man and apes, was revealed to be a fraud, Denison Forum reports. The skull was discovered in England in 1912 by lawyer and amateur anthropologist Charles Dawson. Because, it had the head of a man and jaw of an ape it was hailed as the missing link by the head of the British Museum, Sir Arthur Smith Woodward. For the next several decades, the fame of the Piltdown man discovery spread through evolutionary circles. But there is more to the story. It seems that the British were a bit envious of German archaeologists who claimed to have found a human jaw bone of a man that was 600,000 years old a few years earlier. Ryan Denison, Ph.D. explains what happened next: However, in the late 1940s, a new kind of chemical test was developed, and researchers from Oxford and the British Museum applied it to the Piltdown Man. They published their findings on this …

Violence: Are we ready?

A few years ago, I was driving on a wide and busy road. It was a warm summer evening, and I was caught in a slow stream of traffic. It all seemed normal. On the other side of the wide road, and slightly ahead, I noticed a group of people. I glanced over at them, and it looked like an argument was starting. It looked a bit scary, when I looked closely. One older man was talking to some younger men. The older man was not old, just older than the others. He was probably native. The young men were white, and they looked like skinheads. They had short hair and work boots, and they seemed aggressive. The boots are important in this story. If we could describe a racialized and ugly encounter, like a scene in a movie, this was it. Then the fight started. The lone, older man was shoved, and he fell to the ground, on his hands and knees. The fight continued, and I can still picture one of the young …

Americans will have a 1 in 179 chance of being killed if the current murder rate trend continues, study reports

A recent study conducted by Just Facts reports that if the current murder rate continues that Americans will have a one in 179 chance of being murdered. Breitbart provides more details on the study: The organization explained in a study published on November 4: Based on a misunderstanding of new FBI data, NewsNation is reporting that 14,677 murders occurred in the U.S. during 2021, a supposedly large decline from 2020. In reality, that figure is far from complete, and comprehensive records from death certificates show that about 24,493 people were murdered in 2021. … Murders have become so common over the past two years that if the murder rate remains at the 2021 level, one out of every 179 people in the U.S. will eventually be murdered. Yet, certain politicians and media outlets are downplaying this bloodshed, while others are blaming it on Covid—a claim at odds with the facts. Just Facts argues that the FBI and legacy media are trying to downplay the murder epidemic by citing incomplete data. They are using a system …

Man’s rescue involved ‘a bit of divine intervention’

There was an amazing story of how a man out kayaking on Lake George, a long narrow lake located on the Southern edge of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State was rescued by several missionaries after his kayak overturned. The lake drains into Lake Champlain through the rapidly flowing La Chute River which drops over 200 feet (ca. 61 m) and has several waterfalls and rapids. This has resulted in the formation of strong currents on the narrow lake. In September, Jimmy McDonald, a former drug addict, was out kayaking with his family when he unknowingly drifted into a section of the lake with a strong current while taking photos and videos with his new cellphone, God TV reports. After realizing what was happening, McDonald tried to paddle back but was unable to because it was too strong. Then McDonald’s kayak flipped, and he found himself in the water. His lifejacket, which didn’t fit properly, was now being pushed over his head. McDonald was unable to right the kayak, and sitting in the cold …

The Euphrates River: Can we believe the predictions?

Are huge rivers disappearing? Are we moving to Armageddon? Is there any reason to believe Bible prophecy? The Bible makes many predictions about the times that we are living in. In general, things will get worse, even terrible, and then God will intervene. Intervention is also known as the second coming of Jesus. I am a Christian, but imagine taking the point-of-view of a doubter, a skeptic. If we don’t believe, why should we start now? There are different ideas about where our world is going. One of my best answers is, see the possibilities. Recently, scientists have become worried about the Euphrates river, and its twin, the Tigris. The cradle of ancient civilization formed near them, and they are important in many Bible stories. They form a huge fresh-water system that millions of people depend on, in the heart of the Middle East. The Bible predicted, thousands of years ago, that the Euphrates will dry up, and this will be important for events at the end of this age. Huge armies, from the east, …

Is a meteor responsible for burning down a California home?

Authorities believe that a fire which destroyed a home in Nevada County, California on Friday, Nov. 4, 2022, may have been started by a meteor, Breitbart reports. The blaze took place during the Taurid meteor shower which occurs annually and peaked this year on Nov 4 and Nov 5 and will peak again on Nov 12 and 13. The meteors which are part of the debris from a small comet named Encke, are of larger size and last longer before burning up in the earth’s atmosphere. Astronomers were predicting that this year’s display would be larger than normal. The San Francisco Chronicle provides more details: The fire was reported at 7:25 p.m. in the Mooney Flat area and was contained by 8:55 p.m., said Fire Captain Clayton Thomas of the Penn Valley Fire District. It occurred the same night the Taurid meteor shower was underway, and many residents reported seeing a bright light shoot across the sky and appear to land in the area near the home immediately before the fire began. The fire destroyed …

Is a blood moon occurring on the night of the 2022 American mid-term election significant?

The astronomical phenomenon referred to as a blood or red moon, occurs when the sun, earth and moon align in such a way that the earth partially blocks the sun’s rays from reaching the moon. In a sense, the moon is moving into the earth’s shadow. However, the earth is not large enough to completely block the sun. As its rays move through the edges of the earth’s atmosphere, the blue is basically scattered, and the red is deflected towards the moon giving it an orange or red hue. Curiously, CBN is reporting that there will be a blood moon on November 8, 2022, the night of the midterm elections in the United States. Some have wondered if there is some special significance to this coinciding with what many believe is a major political event in the US, which could see a shift in the political climate in both the America’s Senate and House of Representatives. When God created the universe, the lights in the night sky were intended to serve as signs: 14 And God …

Scientists warn a massive asteroid is lurking in our solar system

As part of his apocalyptic vision of the end times, the Apostle John saw an asteroid the size of a mountain slamming into the earth causing massive devastation. 8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9 NASV) Well, an observatory in Chile has just spotted three massive asteroids within what is described as our inner solar system, the Daily Mail reports. And one of them, 2022 AP7, is one mile or 1.5 km in diameter and actually has the potential to cross the path of the earth’s orbit around the sun. The asteroids within the inner solar system are very difficult to spot because the sun’s glare makes them almost impossible to spot. The Daily Mail explains: A massive asteroid described as a ‘planet killer’ has been spotted lurking in the inner …
