Spiritual Darkness - Hal Lindsey

A pall of darkness enshrouds our planet — spiritual darkness. It is not new. It has been here a long time. Even so, reminders of its presence and its depth can be startling. A good example can be seen in the reactions to Israel's battle with Hamas.

There are almost 2 million people in the Gaza Strip. Even the most severe propagandist from Hamas claims less than 2 thousand Gazan deaths. We don't know how many of the dead were intentionally set up by Hamas to be killed in order to give Hamas a boost in the propaganda battle. Even using their figures, 2,000 is one-tenth of 1 percent of 2 million. And these people are calling it genocide — the attempted annihilation of an entire race.

That's darkness. And it is a darkness that has been long predicted to explode into a global crescendo in the years shortly before Jesus returns.

Indeed, there are trends which are eerily similar to events leading up to the Holocaust. Riots today in some cities are reminiscent of Krystallnacht in Germany. There is a slide toward less freedom of speech in America and an administration that obviously disdains Jews and Israelis. Jews are again blamed for just about any negative trend, especially the financial crises hitting many nations. Survivors have noted similarities between Hitler's rise and Obama's presidency, coupled with similar social trends.

The enduring comfort of prophecy

In these dark days, prophecy performs the same function. The Lord WILL RETURN to execute judgment and vindicate His holy name! While we do not take delight in the death of the ungodly, we do delight in knowing Jesus will rectify all wrongs, judge the wicked, and institute peace on earth. This is ultimate comfort. The ark carried 8 precious souls. It carried every kind of animal. And it carried with it the knowledge of the One True God, and His promises to all generations: holiness in the end.

What About the Christians, Mr. President?

By Eric Barger

A Show of Force??? 

 Now about that action the president has taken over the weekend. Believing that ISIS does not yet possess air power to oppose us, Mr. Obama sent a U.S. Navy F/A-18 on Friday in the first air strike against ISIS. That is not a typo. According to initial media reports Obama sent ONE single F/A-18 to bomb ISIS positions in northern Iraq. Can you say "news byte?" Rush Limbaugh would rightly call that "symbolism over substance."

Liberians packed churches in the capital Monrovia on Sunday to seek solace from an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, defying official warnings to avoid public gatherings to try to contain an epidemic that has killed nearly 1,000 people in West Africa.

With its creaking healthcare system completely overrun, Liberia declared a state of emergency last week to tackle the highly contagious and incurable disease, which has also stricken neighboring Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.

In an article first published on CNN.com, Gingrich noted there is now "an arc of terror from Boko Haram in Nigeria through Hamas in Gaza to ISIS in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, there is a clear wave of vicious religious warfare being waged against civilization by fanatics who openly promise and engage in genocidal killing." Gingrich added that since Americans were seized as hostages in Iran in 1979, "the United States has been at war with radical Islamists. They knew it. We hid from it."

Republican and Democratic administrations have been in denial about this threat to civilization. Presidents George W. Bush and Obama have tried to paint a picture that minimized Islamism.

When I was here for the first Summit in 2012, I made two simple points.

I'd like to recap them here because I think they remain relevant for where we are as a nation two years later. And then I'd like to add a third point for this year.

* America is not simply in decline. We are on the road to collapse, on the road to implosion.
* We must all ask ourselves a critically important question: "Is America at a Jonah moment, or a Nahum moment?"
* What happens if — on top of all our nation's challenges and sins — America abandons or turns against Israel?

The face of 15-year-old Aziza says it all.

Her mouth slightly agape, tears stream down her face as she glances around the inside of a helicopter with confusion in her eyes.

She looks completely exhausted, overcome with emotion. She cries the whole flight to safety.

The Iraqi air force and fighters with the Kurdish peshmerga carried out a dramatic rescue mission Monday at Mount Sinjar, taking supplies to desperate Yazidis and ferrying a handful of people out, including Aziza.

Will Craig get Left Behind?

Speaking of credentials, Dr. Craig's qualifications are very impressive and well-earned. He is known as the Christian philosopher who successfully debates atheists, and Richard Dawkins' worst nightmare. Given all that, Christians will take notice when he offers any opinion.

Some Christians are already chuffed that he's taken a swipe at the Left Behind movie. Rest assured that there will be more of the same. They don't want to believe that Christ could come at any time for His church. I find that mindset bewildering.
