THIS GENERATION?: 70th Anniversary Of Israel’s Rebirth Could Herald Christ’s Return

In 6 months from now, Israel will celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Biblical Nation’s REBIRTH on May 14th, 1948. Thus, I believe 2018 will be a very prophetically-significant year. You may ask, why is the number 70 so important? Why is it any more significant than the 25th Anniversary, or the 40th, or the 50th??? While there are many reasons I will give in this article, I believe the main reason is a single word. That word is “GENERATION”.  In Matthew 24, arguably the most comprehensive account that Jesus Christ gave of Last Days’ Signs concerning His Second Coming, our Lord mentioned “this generation”. What He meant by this was that the generation to witness all of the Signs which He gave would also be THE generation that would witness His RETURN to earth. First, He gave His disciples many specific signs of the End, such as powerful earthquakes, signs in the heavens, Christian persecution, false Christs and false prophets, rumours of wars, and rampant sin.  In verses 32-34, He mentions the most important Sign of them all. For without this Sign being fulfilled, the rest of the Signs could all be taking place at once yet they would […]

Don’t Suffer in Silence

Starting my second semester, my boyfriend and I went to the cafeteria for breakfast.  I began to have what I call the first panic attack of my adult life.

This panic attack changed the course of my entire second semester.  After feeling dizzy, shaky, and like I had “nowhere to run,” I never went to the cafeteria again.

This was the worst mistake I could have made, but at the time I was terrified to tell anyone.

BENHAM BROS: A Real ‘Sincerity’ Challenge For America

(Via – Charles Spurgeon once said: “Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.”  Hypocrisy is a killer today, especially when it’s “talented” hypocrisy – because the influence of talented hypocrites leads so many people astray.  Take the Hollywood elite, for instance. They know sex sells, so they consistently produce and push sexually explicit movies – like “Fifty Shades of Grey,” among others – and yet they pile on Harvey Weinstein for actually living out the smut they produce.  In the wake of Weinstein’s escapades, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Hollywood’s de facto governing body) said: “[T]he era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over … [we will] work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all academy members will be expected to exemplify.”  Try adding these “ethical standards” to the movies you produce, Hollywood. If you were sincere about sexual abuse, you’d change the movies you make, not simply the words you say.  The NFL is another example.  Take how it picks sides when it comes to the league’s player compliance policy. It wouldn’t allow Robert […]

The concept being, finding a point of harmony between the two sides so they each get equal consideration.
