In the previous article, we looked at the biblical evidence for the sad reality of hell. There is another reality......one that will be the eternal home for everyone who loves God. Let's look together at the beautiful reality of heaven. We will begin by looking at some popular beliefs about heaven and eternity held by many in the world. Then we will look at what believers in the past and the Bible tell us about heaven. We'll finish by looking at the close proximity of eternity to every person in the world. The future for every believer is glorious.
In short, the Senate has confirmed someone as racially polarizing and constitutionally contemptuous as Eric Holder.
No doubt some of the Republicans who voted for her believe that since the alternative to Lynch would be Holder remaining on board, they might as well replace the man who was held in contempt of Congress, hoping Lynch will turn out better. Or perhaps they took the advice of presumptive GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush who insisted "presidents have the right to pick their team in general."
Professional leftists are going berserk over a yet-to-be-released book documenting the breathtaking graft and anticipatory bribes that foreign governments and mega-multinationals gave the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton's years at the State Department.
This progressive apoplexy is being generated by a bombshell of a book that won't even hit the bookstands for another 10 days. The opus terrifying left-wingers is Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, by acclaimed best-selling author Peter Schweizer.
So what is Barack Obama doing about all of this? Sadly, he is essentially doing next to nothing. He has been nearly silent as the acts of mass violence just keep piling up. This silence has outraged many on both the left and the right, and yet Obama just continues to keep quiet. What are we supposed to make of that?
A Navy chaplain who faces the end of a stellar 19-year career because of his faith-based views on marriage and human sexuality was told by a base commander to refrain from offering a prayer in the name of Jesus, according to attorneys representing the chaplain.
A couple of years ago it was reported that Turkey was helping fund the building of a $100 million dollar mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland. In fact Erdogan visited the mosque when he was here in May of 2013, promising to come back for the opening.
Well that time has apparently arrived and now Erdogan and Obama will be together at the mosque for the big opening ceremony:
Nearly one year after Jews for Jesus launched one of its most successful and controversial evangelism campaigns, more than 1.3 million people worldwide have watched That Jew Died for You.
The three-minute YouTube video depicts Jesus carrying the cross to a gas chamber. The film's goal was to "reshape views of Jesus and his relationship to the Holocaust." Pegged to Yom HaShoah, a day when Israel remembers the Holocaust (held the evening of April 15 this year), many Jews called it the "most tasteless YouTube video ever."
White House report provides clues to watch for
What are the signs that your community has been secretly selected for an infusion of refugees from Muslim nations like Syria or Somalia, or migrant workers from Central America?

The other day, "Greg" sent this pithy contribution to my inbox.
"I am a staunch conservative and Christian, and I enjoy and appreciate WND's reporting of the news. But, I have to ask, is there anything GOOD happening that you might report on? Every day it seems like we're one step closer to a police state or LGBTs taking over the country. The Bible says that where sin increases, grace superabounds.

Now there's a challenge!
Former U.S. congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claimed that the "rapture of the Church" is looming and will be brought to reality due to the foreign policies of president Barack Obama, and added that God will punish the United States for disobeying His will.
As previously reported by The Christian Post, the 59-year-old Minnesotan recently spoke with Jan Markell on the "Understanding the Times" radio program and labeled Obama's foreign policy — specifically his desire for a nuclear deal with Iran – as being "pro the goals of Islamic Jihad." She added that Obama's foreign policy will lead to the coming of the Islamic Messiah (Mahdi) and the return of Jesus Christ.
