The Fortress

posted by jfletcher

Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. (Isaiah 49:16) A lot of people don’t like Jews, and a whole lot of nations loathe Israel, but I admit to a sense […]

Good Fences Make Adequate Neighbors

posted by jfletcher

Israel’s security barrier, termed an “apartheid wall” by Jimmy Carter groupies, has saved Jewish lives. Period. The Bible speaks of a time when Israel will be a land of unwalled villages. There is some debate about what this means, exactly. […]

Blessing and Curses

posted by jfletcher

And I bless those blessing thee, and him who is disesteeming thee I curse, and blessed in thee have been all families of the ground. (Genesis 12:3) When one looks at Scripture, then looks at world history, the Bible makes […]

The Ultimate Debt-Ceiling

posted by jfletcher

In the Bible’s Book of Revelation, the 13th chapter, we read—if one supposes this figure is yet future—a description of a world leader who will be so fearsome, he will make mass murderers Hitler and Stalin look like amateurs. Interestingly, […]

At Least One Congress is Forward-Thinking

posted by jfletcher

I just returned from a terrific Christian conference, Future Congress (www.futurecongress.com). This was a gathering of conservative Christian thinkers, including several who teach Bible prophecy. Although some in the Church refer to us as espousing “escapist eschatology,” I find that […]

You Can Lead a Horse to Water…

posted by jfletcher

Speaking on the subject of Bible prophecy in a church last night, I was reminded again that Bible-believing Christians are not the bumpkins their critics make them out to be. There was a lively and sophisticated set of questions for […]

The Best Reunion

posted by jfletcher

I attended my 30th class reunion this past weekend. It was just down the street from an old army surplus store that I used to frequent with my father; it was one of our hobbies—cruising junk stores. Dad has been […]

Glenn Beck’s Traveling Temple Mount Roadshow

posted by jfletcher

The announcement today that Glenn Beck’s previously announced, weird event at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, has been moved due to security concerns…is weird. But welcome. Why the popular populist announced in the first place that he’d hold a pro Israel rally […]

Oh, Palestine!

posted by jfletcher

With news that the Palestinians might appeal to the United Nations this fall for an upgrade to full member status, we can see a Bible prophecy theme emerging. For many years, Bible prophecy teachers and students did not see the […]

The Wolfman

posted by jfletcher

(The following post came from a conversation with my wife, Dianna—she reluctantly agreed to pen some thoughts because I don’t believe in plagiarism! She understands people and their afflictions. I thought her observations blend well with the theme of this […]

Zechariah 14:12

posted by jfletcher

I am speaking at the Future Congress conference in Branson, Missouri next weekend, and one of my topics is “Did Zechariah Predict Nuclear War?” Now, you’ll either have to attend or get the obligatory dvd to fully understand my answer […]

Where is the New Jerusalem?

posted by jfletcher

I had a glorious weekend speaking at a church in the upper Midwest. The historic church where I spoke has a history steeped-in the Abolitionists and folks who escaped Europe, looking for religious freedom. They were pious and tough. I […]

Going Global

posted by jfletcher

With news late last night that President Obama had abruptly walked out on “debt ceiling” talks with the Republicans, I was reminded once again just how relevant Bible prophecy is. For many years, scoffers who made Bible prophecy teachers the […]

Future Congress!

posted by jfletcher

One of the fun things I get to do in my study of Bible prophecy is connect with friends who are on the cutting-edge of research. As a matter of fact, far from being the wild-eyed fanatics that critics allege, […]

Entebbe

posted by jfletcher

Thirty-five years ago today, America celebrated its bicentennial; I remember the day vividly. I remember it so well for a different reason than you might imagine. I woke up that morning to hear my parents talking about something that had […]

Is the Future Bleak?

posted by jfletcher

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.” (Isaiah 65:17) I found out yesterday that an acquaintance is riddled with cancer. He found out only a few […]

A League of Friends

posted by jfletcher

Upon returning from a trip to Israel recently, I reflected on what I’d seen, and what is going on in the world. Clearly, the Arab-Israeli conflict is a focal point for the international community. And, usually, the news is bad. […]

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they ...

Rebels Without a Cause
Those who dismiss the late James Dean as merely a brooding, self-absorbed young actor miss the point, I think. Dean, who evidently suffered both from the early loss of his mother and from abuse at the hands of a trusted clergyman, really was ...

The King of Zionism
Each year, various groups and individuals seek to politicize the memory of Martin Luther King, on the national holiday in his honor. So I will, too. Perhaps a little-known fact about “MLK” is that he was a strong supporter of the ...

Kay Wilson—Choosing Life
Today marks the fourth anniversary of the horrific Palestinian terror attack on my friend, Kay Wilson, and her friend, Kristine Luken. Kay survived, somehow; Kristine, a Christian, did not. Their attackers targeted them because they were ...

Jesus Christ…the most famous figure in world history. According to the apostle John: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books ...
