How the Right Lost Its Mind and Embraced Donald Trump

This is a painful story for me to write. For a quarter of a century, I was a major part of the conservative movement. But like many on the right, in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory I had to ask some uncomfortable questions. The 2016 presidential campaign was a brutal, disillusioning slog, and there…

Mary, Joseph, and Saint John: Historic Disasters of 5777 Have Had Astounding BIBLICAL Connections

On the Feast of Trumpets, the first night of Rosh Hashanah 5778, two names dominating mainstream news coverage are Biblical – JOSEPH and MARY. A third well-known name amongst believers has also been capturing headlines, and that is Saint JOHN. I do not believe that this is all coincidence, but rather that God is trying to get our attention. By connecting 3 of the most recognizable people in His Son’s earthly life to recent historic judgments, I believe the Father is signalling that Lord Jesus is EN ROUTE to soon rapture the faithful. So, exactly how have Jesus’ earthly guardians and the author of Revelation been associated with the recent historic disasters? The first connections that I noticed came during Hurricane Harvey. A statue of the Virgin Mary was the ONLY item left standing after a home burned to the ground in Corpus Christi, Texas. It is very interesting that Corpus Christi, the City which bore the brunt of Harvey’s initial landfall, is Latin for the “Body of CHRIST”. About 3 days after Harvey dissipated, another massive Hurricane formed, and was named after God’s chosen Virgin – MARIA. For those who don’t know, Maria is the Italian/Spanish translation for MARY. I […]

“It’s Like SODOM AND GOMORRAH”: In Less Than Two Weeks, Two Massive EARTHQUAKES Devastate Mexico

“It’s like Sodom and Gomorrah, like God is angry at us”… These were the words of Jorge Diaz, a Mexican government employee, after the second powerful earthquake in 12 days devastated Mexico. On September 7th, the most powerful quake to strike Mexico in a century, an 8.1 magnitude, destroyed thousands of homes and was felt by tens of millions of people. It left nearly 100 Mexicans dead. Yesterday’s 7.1 magnitude earthquake, though striking 100 miles from Mexico City, destroyed at least 45 structures in the country’s Capital. The latest quake struck on the 32nd anniversary of Mexico’s 1985 quake that left more than 10,000 people dead. 12 hours after Tuesday’s disaster, Mexico’s death toll stands at over 200, and is expected to rise. Widespread damage was reported in Morelos, Puebla and in Mexico State. The massive 8.1 quake was not the headline news that it should have been. This is because it struck at the same time that Hurricanes Harvey & Irma were blanketing mainstream media news coverage. The epicenters of the two powerful quakes were more than 400 miles apart. The 7.1 temblor was not only strong, but also very shallow. It struck at a depth of only 33 […]
