Going up to Jerusalem

posted by jfletcher

The modern air traveler, seated (hopefully) comfortably, isn’t really aware that the plane itself is “whooshing!” through the air. In a plane, you are going really, really fast. Next week, as I travel to Israel again, the plane can’t get […]

The Darkness

There are all sorts of amazing prophecies in the Bible. Not all of them deal with antichrists and things that go bump in the night. But they do signal a season of darkness before the light dawns. Among other places […]

Is Prophecy Relevant?

posted by jfletcher

Recent world events, along with Harold Camping’s spectacular fail, have placed the subject of Bible prophecy squarely in the public square. I don’t remember a time when so many people are talking about “the end of the world.” Except in […]

Still there, huh?

posted by jfletcher

Coming out for the encore of the Band’s legendary 1976 Thanksgiving Day final concert, at San Francisco’s Winterland theatre, the peerless Robbie Robertson strode to the microphone and said, “Still there, huh?” It was a funny line, and I was […]

Oh, my Gog!

“And now, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel. Say, ‘Mountains of Israel, listen to God’s Message. God, the Master, says, Because the enemy crowed over you, “Good! Those old hills are now ours!” now here is a […]

The Blessed Hope

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. (1 […]

Camping Out Saturday

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matthew 24:36) One can’t help but wonder if Harold Camping made his prediction for May 21 out of […]

Happy Birthday, Israel!

“Before she went into labor, she had the baby. Before the birth pangs hit, she delivered a son. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Has anyone seen anything like this? A country born in a day? A nation […]

Weary?

One of the common criticisms of the Bible is that it is irrelevant, a human product full of mistakes. Of course, the reality is, it’s neither of those things. As is discussed in this space—and will be a theme we […]

Earth-shattering Prophecy

posted by jfletcher

When the predicted earthquake didn’t hit Rome on May 11, what did you make of that? Reuters circulated a story about the prediction of the late seismologist Raffaele Bendandi; it is said that he predicted a devastating earthquake would hit […]

It’s a Date

posted by jfletcher

“But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father knows. (Matthew 24:36) Extremes are often the worst of who we are. In Christendom today, particularly among evangelicals, there […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

posted by jfletcher

Mother’s Day is one of our country’s best holidays; my own mother was a single mother for many years. My wife also did a terrific job alone for some years until we “joined forces.” She is an extraordinary mother. Although […]

posted by jfletcher

In the War on Terror, and for those of us who “side” with the good guys, it’s important to remember that there are good people in the Arab world. An AP story that appeared in USA Today brought this truth […]
