When Did We Stop Watching?

I write a great deal here about what is going on in the world and how it matches, seamlessly, with Biblical predictions for events that immediately precede the return of Christ.  But when I write, I do so assuming that the value of watching for the signs of the coming of Christ is universally accepted […]

Wars and Rumors of Wars: Syria

Trying to dig into conflict in the Middle East (anywhere in the Middle East) is like peeling an endless onion – it is just layer after painful layer of a history of intrigue and treachery and international interventions and hatred, all of which is directly influencing current events.  A succession of American presidents have tried […]

Ours is the First Generation to be Able to Chart and Graph the Fulfillment of Prophecy

Increasingly Frequent Disasters and the Fulfillment of Prophecy
