Why is Ezekiel 38 trending on Twitter?

Twitter exploded after photos emerged of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Iran’s Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. It was Putin’s first international visit since his invasion of Ukraine, and it was unmistakable that Putin was showing the world that he still has allies. Also in attendance was Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is trying to broker a deal that would end Russia’s blockade of Ukraine’s ports, allowing needed grain shipments to leave. But it left Turkey looking like a Putin ally as well. However, the meeting also caught the attention of those studying Biblical end times events because it could be a precursor to fulfilling an infamous end times war, also called Armageddon, where several nations attacking Israel. This included Gog and Magog, Persia, Cush and Gomer, described in Ezekiel 38. Persia, of course, fits modern Iran, but there have been a few questions on who Gog and Magog described since it seems to be the major player in this war. Gog is the leader of this …

Man killed over windshield fluid splatter?

The New York Post reports that the father of two children died in a road rage incident, after being shot by someone driving a BMW. Dennis Anderson and his partner Brandy Goldsbury were driving along a coastal road in Oregon, when Dennis sprayed windshield fluid to clean his car window. A BMW was passing at the time, and it seems that some fluid may have spattered on the passing vehicle. The outraged driver of the BMW sped ahead, but a few miles later the passing couple saw the vehicle parked in a rest area. After Anderson and his partner passed, the BMW allegedly pulled out behind and began harassing their vehicle, trying to force it off the road. When Anderson finally pulled over to call 911, the BMW pulled up beside and its occupant opened fire, killing Anderson. Kind of reminds me of the Apostle Paul’s description of the last days leading to Christ’s return:  But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of …

American trust in mainstream media at historic lows

According to a recent Gallup poll, America’s trust in the mainstream has fallen to a historic low, Forbes reports. The poll found that only 16% of US adults state they had ‘quite a lot’ or ‘great’ confidence in the mainstream newspapers, and only 11% said the same about television news. Equally, concerning is that the level of trust is down 5% on both accounts from a similar poll taken last year. Not surprisingly, the trust in the legacy media is highest among Democrats. In terms of television news, 20% of Democrats said they still trusted this medium, compared to just 8% of Independents and 8% of Republicans. When it came to the legacy newspapers, only 35% of Democrats fully trusted this news source, compared to 12% of Independents and 8% of Republicans.

Many years ago, Denise and I took our sons to Rome for a study tour of the ancient world with a special emphasis on early Christian history. As we stood inside the great Roman Coliseum, we listened as our doctoral guide spoke to us at length about the barbarism and atrocities that were so loved and cheered by the Roman citizens who packed that great stadium nearly 2,000 years ago.

The impact of a godly wife: ‘I’ll never be mad at God’, Jim Breuer on the death of his wife, Dee

Jim Breuer is a popular stand-up comic, musician, actor, radio host and podcaster. He became famous for playing Joe Pesci and the “Goat boy” on Saturday Night Live between 1995 and 1998. He has also had roles in several movies, including ‘Half Baked’. Jim married his wife Dee in 1993, and they have three daughters. I don’t know if Jim is a Christian, but his wife, Dee, certainly is, and she has had a profound impact on Jim. Dee, who was also a regular contributor on Jim’s podcast, The Breuniverse Podcast, was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, which was successfully treated. However, in 2015 she was diagnosed with Lymph node cancer and doctors admitted there is nothing they can do. But even after her second diagnosis, Dee continued to join Jim on the podcast as she talked about her struggle with cancer. In a recent episode, Jim shared a conversation that he had with a friend and you can see Dee’s profound impact. The friend, a former actor on SNL, asked if Jim …

A couple characteristics of the end times

In 2 Timothy 3:1-5, the Apostle Paul talks about the changes that will take place in people as we enter the difficult last days. He says that, among other things, they will become “ungrateful” or unthankful. Connecticut police state that they have arrested a man who allegedly pulled a gun on two women when they failed to say thank you after he opened the door for them at a store, the New York Post reports. The man immediately fled after pulling out the gun but was later picked up by police. It is uncertain why the two women failed to express what would be considered a small courtesy, but the man certainly overreacted to the situation. The Apostle Paul also added that people in the end times would be “without love,” “unforgiving”, and “without self-control.” READ: Connecticut man pulls gun on women who didn’t thank him for holding door, cops say

Former pro-life flight attendant successfully wins lawsuit over firing

A jury has awarded, former Southwest Airlines flight attendant, Charlene Carter, $4.5 million from the airline, which Carter alleges had fired her because of pro-life beliefs. She also won $950,000 in punitive damages from Local 556 of the Transport Workers Union. When Carter started working for Southwest Airlines in 1996, she had to join the union. In 2013, she quit her union membership because it was supporting activities, such as abortion, that violated her beliefs as a Christian. It was also using Carter’s union dues to support political causes that Carter did not support. Though no longer a member, as part of her employment with Southwest, Carter was still required to pay union dues. The problem started in 2017 when Carter found out that several members of the union, including its president, Audrey Stone, were attending a woman’s march in Washington, DC, that was sponsored by several pro-abortion groups. Seeing her union dues being used in such a manner, Carter posted comments on social media indicating her pro-life position and as well criticizing Stone and …
