As we continue in our study of the Book of Revelation with (#11) by Pastor Barry Stagner and Don Stewart. I like the fact that Don Stewart is fluent in Greek and when he reads the New Testament he is reading from the Greek. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did… Maranatha!!! :D

PROPHECY BEFORE OUR EYES…. HAMAS MURDERS 25 PALESTINIANS, BLAMES ISRAEL….

Used cease-fire to execute suspected collaborators during ‘humanitarian’ truce

Published: 1 day ago

hamas

TEL AVIV – Hamas killed at least 25 Palestinian civilians it suspected of collaborating with Israel, according to sources close to both Hamas and the Islamic Jihad groups, told World News Daily that most of the extra-judicial killings of suspected collaborators took place during a brief “humanitarian” cease-fire four days ago.

The so-called collaborators were accused of leading Israeli troops to smuggling tunnels and providing intelligence on Hamas’ infrastructure inside Gazan cities.

The sources said Hamas publicly blamed the killings of the Palestinian suspects on Israel, claiming the civilians were murdered Sunday during an Israel Defense Forces “massacre” in the Shujaiyeh neighborhood of the Gaza Strip.

The sources further said the civilian suspects murdered by Hamas were publicly celebrated by Hamas as martyrs killed by the Jewish state.

After Sunday’s operation in Shujaiyeh, in which the IDF says it targeted Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure, Israel agreed to a two-hour humanitarian cease-fire facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross. The stated purposed of the lull in fighting was to evacuate Palestinian casualties.

During the cease-fire, the IDF said Hamas violated the agreement by shooting at IDF soldiers. Nonetheless, Israel extended the cease-fire another hour.

Israel lost 13 soldiers during the Shujaiyeh operation Sunday. Hamas claimed Israel killed at least 66 Palestinians, mostly civilians, in that operation.

Israel says most Palestinian casualties were gunmen.



SCIENCE PROVING THE BIBLE CORRECT AGAIN!!!…. Discrimination Before Our Eyes….

‘We Will Not Tolerate Your Religion!’ School Fires Scientist for Questioning Evolution

 

California State University Northridge

LOS ANGELES – A legal defense organization filed a lawsuit this week against California State University, alleging that the school fired a biologist for discovering scientific evidence that contradicted evolutionary theory.

Mark Armitage was a scientist at California State University—Northridge (CSUN), where he worked as a researcher and supervised the school’s electron microscope laboratory. He was also a member of several scientific organizations, including the Microscopy Society of America, the American Society of Parasitologists, and the Southern California Academy of Sciences.

However, CSUN suddenly terminated Armitage’s employment two years ago after he discovered soft tissue on a Triceratops fossil. Evolutionists at the university were evidently displeased by Armitage’s discovery, since they were convinced that the fossil was tens of millions of years old.

Even though Armitage’s findings were published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, the university decided to fire him, saying his findings were unacceptable. According to Armitage, his supervisor entered the lab and declared, “We will not tolerate your religion in this department!”

In an interview with GenesisWeek, Armitage said he was shocked and frustrated when the university terminated his employment.

“It is frustrating because I made no conclusions in the paper, I just presented the factual data,” he said. “The only conclusions I drew were that ‘This needs to be investigated further. We have a lot of work to do.’ And that was it.”

Armitage believes he lost his job because evolutionists in the department were unwilling to consider the implications of his discovery.

“Suffice it to say,” Armitage added, “some people in the department didn’t appreciate [the soft tissue discovery], and somehow they seemed to work a way to have me very quickly removed from my position.”

After the incident, Armitage promised to pursue legal action, arguing that the school had fired him for no good reason. According to a press release this week from the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), the scientist is finally receiving the legal representation he desired.

“Terminating an employee because of their religious views is completely inappropriate and illegal,” stated PJI President Brad Dacus in the release. “But doing so in an attempt to silence scientific speech at a public university is even more alarming. This should be a wakeup call and warning to the entire world of academia.”

PJI has now filed a lawsuit with the Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of Armitage, which argues that CSUN wrongfully terminated Armitage’s employment on the basis of his Christian religious beliefs.

“It has become apparent that ‘diversity’ and ‘intellectual curiosity,’ so often touted as hallmarks of a university education, do not apply to those with a religious point of view,” PJI staff attorney Michael Peffer said in the release. “This suit was filed, in part, to vindicate those ideals.”

The Triceratops tissue discovery by Armitage is not the first time evolutionists have been counfounded by soft tissue in “ancient” fossils. As previously reported, Canadian researchers recently found well-preserved dinosaur skin from a fossil that evolutionists believed to be over 60 million years old.

Word of the Day… July 21, 2014….

When things in life turn sour, people are apt to complain: “God, why would You allow this to happen? You can’t be in this!” Don’t be so sure.

Let’s look at an episode in the life of Jacob. After he tricked his older brother into giving him the right of the firstborn, he fled to where his relative Laban lived. You probably know the story: Jacob fell in love with Laban’s beautiful young daughter, Rachel. He then served Laban fourteen long years for both Leah and Rachel, though he really only loved Rachel. After Rachel bore their son Joseph, Jacob told Laban, “Send me away, that I may go to my own place and to my country” (Gen. 30:25). Laban convinced him to stay for another six years, and that’s where we find him in Genesis 31.

Ever since Jacob began living with Laban, there had been tension between the two, though they seemed to adjust to it. But in Genesis 31, we see that tension turn into friction: “And Jacob saw the countenance of Laban, and indeed it was not favorable toward him as before. Then the Lord said to Jacob, ‘Return to the land of your fathers and to your family, and I will be with you’” (Gen. 31:2-3).

Notice how God prepared Jacob to move back to his home. The first thing He did was put the desire in Jacob’s heart. After Joseph was born, Jacob had said, “I need to go back home. My heart is there. I need to be back in the covenant land of Abraham and Isaac.” But he didn’t go back. However, that desire never left him. He didn’t act too quickly on it, but God put the desire deep in his heart.

This is an important principle in our lives. The first thing God does to move us from one experience to another or one place to another is put a desire deep within. David wrote in Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” When you delight yourself in the Lord, the desires you have are the desires God plants within your heart. However, those desires need to be confirmed; you don’t want to impulsively act on every desire you have.

For Jacob, the nest was getting stirred up, so he thought, It’s time to get out of here. What I feel in my heart is now being confirmed by the circumstances the Lord has placed around me. The friction between him and Laban caused Jacob to seek a new direction. Here’s the principle: the Lord stirs things up by circumstances. They may not be favorable, but it could be that the Lord is doing something to move you along.

"Then the Lord said to Jacob, ‘Return to the land of your fathers and to your family, and I will be with you’" (Gen. 31:3). The word of the Lord came to Jacob and confirmed what he felt in his heart and what the circumstances were telling him. When life turns sour, God may have some sweet blessings right around the corner. Don’t complain. Don’t moan. Just say, "What opportunities might God have in store if I trust Him and move forward?"

After this, Jacob talked to his wives, and they confirmed what he heard from God and felt in his heart (see Gen. 31:14-16). After God puts something in your heart, after the circumstances line up, and after you hear the voice of God through His Word, seek confirmation from God’s family. The Bible says, “In the multitude of counselors there is safety” (Prov. 11:14). Get counsel from the body of Christ. Run it by somebody who has maturity and insight.

Eventually, the Lord did bring Jacob back to the land of his fathers. So here’s food for thought: maybe you’ve been praying that God would do something different and great and move powerfully in your life, yet something unfavorable or unpleasant has happened. Have you ever thought that this could be part of the answer to that prayer? That God is going to put something in your heart (or perhaps already has), that the circumstances are lining up with that desire, and that now God will speak through His Word and confirm it with His people? I encourage you to let God move. Let Him stir the nest.

I really enjoyed this devotional from Pastor Skip Heitzig!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

HAS JOHN PIPER LOST HIS MIND?

I found this article from Sola Sisters and I wanted to share it with you all.  I have been having my doubt about John Piper and he is one that I can no longer get behind his teaching.  Here is the article from Sola sister and I agree with them.

So said my sister in a phone call shortly after the start of this year’s Passion Conference, taking place now in Atlanta, GA (Jan 1-4). I’m sure she said this with all due respect to Dr. Piper, who has long been looked to as a solid teacher of the Reformed tradition. And yet in recent years, Dr. Piper has gone about giving his stamp of approval to various and sundry teachers, many of them solid and trustworthy, but some of them quite dangerous.

This stamp of approval first reared its ugly head when Dr. Piper brought out a young whippersnapper named Mark Driscoll as his keynote speaker at a Desiring God conference, years ago. In 2006, to be exact. This was the same Driscoll who went on later to shock us with his pornographic divinations and his fascist like handling of church members.  And yet, no public rebuking or distancing has gone on, that I know of, between Dr. Piper and his protégé .

Then Rick Warren got Dr. Piper’s stamp of approval at the 2010 Desiring God Conference. Yes, that’s right, Rick Warren. To paraphrase my friend Pastor Bob DeWaay, what made this particular alliance so very shocking was that Dr. Piper, who has long been regarded as one of the faithful few guarding the flock against false teaching was the very one who had opened the pen gate and ushered the wolf (Warren) right into the fold of his Desiring God conference.

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” Matthew 7:15

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” Gal 1:8

“Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.” 2 John 1:8-11

“I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.” Romans 16:17

Then, out came the approval stamp again at last year’s Passion 2012 Conference, when Dr. Piper stood benignly by on stage as Louie Giglio exhorted the audience members to “(hear) the voice of God speak,” during a Lectio Divina-ish type mystical exercise.

And now we have this year’s Passion 2013 Conference, currently underway in Atlanta, GA, at which John Piper is sharing the stage with false teachers Jesus Culture. Don’t know who Jesus Culture is? Oh well, let me fill you in: Jesus Culture is an offshoot group out of Bill Johnson’s heretical Bethel Church in Redding, CA. That’s right, the same Bill Johnson of the glory dust and the angel feathers fame.

“For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.” Titus 1:7-9

 

So why doesn’t Dr. Piper storm out on the stage like a man on fire and rebuke this madness? Or, he could leave the conference and write an eloquent and heartfelt apology for his part in confusing the flock in his care by knowingly linking with false teachers.  I’d be all for that. And yes, I get that he’s just a man, and no man is perfect. I’m not expecting perfection, but what I do desire to see is him seriously taking to heart the admonition in Scripture that not all should teach because those who do are judged more strictly (James 3:1). BUT, if Dr. Piper is unwilling to repent of going around giving false teachers his stamp of approval, then maybe one of our Godly pastors could fly to Minneapolis and wrestle the stamp away from him to keep him from further harming the flock. Just a thought.

Prophecy before Our Eyes… IDF Deploys More Troops on Gaza Border amid Airstrike….

Over 30 rockets rain on Israel since Wednesday; IDF moves ‘HQ, not field level’ officers to Gaza in ‘defensive’ move.

Israel carried out a troop deployment towards the Gaza border on Thursday, as rockets from the Hamas enclave continue to fall in a recent escalation of attacks.

"We are moving and we have moved forces in order to serve defense activities and forward preparation, but we have no interest in escalation," IDF spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner told AFP.

The spokesperson added that the reinforcements consist of reserve officers at “headquarter level, not in the field,” adding the move was intended defensively.

"We have no interest in deepening the conflict with Gaza," said Lerner.

In response to the rocket escalation, the IAF conducted an airstrike on southern Gaza Thursday afternoon, targeting several suspicious areas near the Rafiah border crossing to Sinai. The IDF announced the airstrike was meant as an act of deterrence against the rocket fire.

Over 30 rockets have peppered southern Israel from Gaza during the course of Wednesday and Thursday. The most recent fell Thursday afternoon in open area in the Merhavim Regional Council area, after a rocket hit open area right next to the Sderot industrial area mere hours earlier. No injuries were reported in either incident.

Sderot’s industrial area took a harsh blow on Saturday night, when a direct hit was recorded on a plastics factory, burning it completely to the ground. Another rocket hit a summer day camp on Thursday, only moments before children were to arrive.

While there has been an ongoing rocket escalation since the three Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16) and Gilad Sha’ar (16) were abducted and murdered by Hamas terrorists on June 12, the recent blitz since Wednesday began the day that Mohammed Abu Khder of Beit Hanina, Jerusalem was found burned to death after having been abducted.

There have been wide accusations of Jewish “revenge” being behind the murder, but a senior former police official familiar with Abu Khder’s family told Arutz Sheva it was a family with a long police record, known for violent internal clashes, adding ”I have no doubt that as time passes it will be clarified that the murder was criminal and nothing more.”

In a little-noticed report on Channel Two Wednesday night, reporter Moshe Nussbaum cited contradictory statements by the youth’s parents, who both told police different stories about another attempted kidnapping – that of Muhammad’s nine year old brother – that may or may not have taken place.

During the ensuing riots in Beit Hanina and Shuafat after theannouncement of the murder, several Arab residents reportedly attacked a young local Arab, possibly indicating the internal clashes the source spoke of.

SCIENCE PROVING THE BIBLE TRUE AGAIN…. Bad News for the Big Bang THEORY…

Bad News for the Big Bang: Secular Scientists Claim Universe Shouldn’t Exist

Higgs Boson Credit Lucas Taylor
LONDON – Nearly two years after the highly-publicized discovery of the elusive ‘God Particle,’ scientists have determined that the current Big Bang model cannot account for the existence of the universe.

As previously reported, scientists in Europe announced in 2012 that they had detected the Higgs boson, then confirmed their findings last year.  The Higgs boson, also known as “the God particle,” was widely heralded as a key to understanding the origins of the universe.

However, in a major setback to the secular Big Bang theory, scientists with King’s College in London announced this month that Higgs boson physics cannot account for the universe’s existence. The scientists came to this conclusion after modeling the hypothetical conditions of the universe immediately after the Big Bang.

“During the early universe, we expected cosmic inflation—this is a rapid expansion of the universe right after the Big Bang,” Robert Hogan, a physicist with King’s College, told LiveScience. “This expansion causes lots of stuff to shake around.”

However, Hogan added, the “shaking around” caused by the Big Bang would have brought catastrophic consequences to the early universe.

“If we shake it too much, we could go into this new energy space, which could cause the universe to collapse,” he said.

Incorporating “the God particle” into the Big Bang model only made matters worse.

“What [the scientists] found was bad news for, well, everything,” LiveSciencereports. “The newborn universe should have experienced an intense jittering in the energy field, known as quantum fluctuation. Those jitters, in turn, could have disrupted the Higgs field, in essence rolling the entire system into a much lower energy state that would make the collapse of the universe inevitable.”

Hogan plans to share his findings today at the Royal Astronomical Society meeting in Portsmouth, England. Meanwhile, some suggest that these findings are evidence that the Big Bang theory is a flawed model which cannot account for the origin of the universe.

“Of course another possibility is a creative designer,” one online commenter succinctly noted.

Dr. Danny Faulkner, an astronomer with Answers in Genesis, says the Big Bang theory has repeatedly conflicted with observational evidence.

“When we hear the term big bang theory, many people assume it was conceived in its present form and has remained unassailed ever since,” Faulker wrote in a recent article.

“In reality,” he continued, “it is a very pliable model. Several assumed variables in the equations have been changed to make the numbers match new findings. Today’s big bang model little resembles the one your grandfather learned, and it is likely to continue morphing. Are these improvements, or just rescuing devices?”

Likewise, Drs. Jake Hebert and Jason Lisle with the Institute for Creation Research propose that a belief in God—not the Big Bang theory—is ultimately foundational for understanding the universe’s existence.

“If God chooses to use a Higgs field to set the masses of all particles, He can certainly do so,” they wrote in an online article. “The fact that such physics is possible or even meaningful would only make sense in a created universe that is controlled by the mind of God anyway. The study of how God upholds the universe today is the very essence of science.”

Make it Count  

     Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. —1 Corinthians 10:31 


I remember when, as a young Christian, I would sit in the pews at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa and listen to Senior Pastor Chuck Smith speak. I would think to myself, I wonder if God would ever use me? I wonder if the Lord would ever speak through me? Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that God would allow me to be a pastor and someone who has the privilege of proclaiming the gospel. It was beyond my own dreams, beyond my own aspirations, even.


If you are planning your future right now, if you are thinking about what course you want to follow in life, ask God for His direction. Say, “Lord, I want to be the person that You want me to be. I want to marry the person You want me to marry. I want to be in the center of Your will. I don’t want to go out there and blow it. Help me to do Your will.” God’s plans for you are better than anything you have ever planned for yourself.


God has given each of us certain abilities, talents, and resources. The question is, what are you doing with them? Are you seeking to use them for His glory? Are you offering your resources and future to Him?
I’m not saying that you have to be a pastor. But whatever you do, whether you are a doctor, an architect, a secretary, a computer programmer, a builder, a musician, or something else, you should want to serve the Lord and do it for the glory of God. That is what matters. Your life can be a testimony and a witness for Jesus.


Love this teaching from Pastor Greg!!!  I agree God can use us right where we are if we only allow Him to!!!  Can you even imagine the impact on the world if each one of us shared Jesus with someone?  Think about it.  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!
