Does God Love the Jews?

posted by jfletcher

For a long time, there has been a controversy in the Christian world about Jews, and their place in God’s economy. While I think His obvious love for them is plainly eternal and has never been revoked, there are many […]

So Many to Choose From!

posted by jfletcher

The Bible is filled with lots and lots of marvelous prophecies. It is almost a shame that we focus mostly on a few of them (the rise of the antichrist in the last days, etc.). One of my favorites is […]

Who Will Destroy the World?

posted by jfletcher

David Mamet, the playwright, has written a wonderful book, The Secret Knowledge, in which he traces his personal journey from liberalism to, well, something to the right of that. At one point, he writes the following: “The elections of 2008 […]

Damascus in the Cross-hairs

posted by jfletcher

Just one of the fascinating characteristics of Bible prophecy is its proximity to reality. Many don’t think of it that way, but I do. Bible prophecy is not some esoteric nonsense. I was reminded of this today after reading that […]

Shaky

People everywhere are unnerved by daily events: Wall St., hurricanes, brain-eating amoeba. Earthquakes. With recent news of earthquakes in such odd places as Colorado and Washington D.C., I was reminded of the famous pronouncement by Jesus that earthquakes in “diverse” […]

Irrefutable?

posted by jfletcher

Fairly often, I hear people debate whether the Bible can be proven to be true (or not true). By that, I mean arguments on both sides suggest, strongly, that the Bible’s history and science is either right or wrong. I’m […]

The Murder of Jews

posted by jfletcher

A constant theme in both biblical and secular history is the devilish propensity for many to hate and do harm to Jews. This morning is the latest sorry reminder. At least six Jews were killed near the Sinai, in an […]

Headlines that we saw this morning are becoming the norm: •Morgan Stanley warns of recession •Dow drops 3.6 percent •Brain-eating amoeba claims three victims •Six killed near Sinai This is what passes for a routine day in our world now. […]

When Legends Leave

I won’t do it often, but tonight I ask you to indulge me. I enjoy writing about the focus of this blog, but tonight I go at it a different way. Although, perhaps it does fit after all as I […]

Hard to Believe

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” (Revelation 16:12) As I often like to say—I […]

Tears and Tisha B’Av

A few weeks ago, visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, I just wanted to cry. The place I consider the spiritual center of the universe is a 35-acre compound that today is holy to three faiths. It is also a […]

Wars and rumors of wars…

posted by jfletcher

In the book of Matthew, chapter 24, Jesus told the apostles (who had inquired) that among the signs of the end of the age would be “wars and rumors of wars.” Well, it’s here. Yahoo!News is reporting that the burger […]

Clash of the Worldviews

posted by jfletcher

I am having a splendid email conversation with a Christian leader who does not share my view of Bible prophecy. I have taken issue with his harsh rhetoric about Bible prophecy students and teachers, and pro Israel Christians—or, to be […]

Is the World Getting Better?

posted by jfletcher

One of the hallmarks of liberal thought a century ago was that man was improving himself so much that society would get better and better. Then the butchery known as the Great War commenced. It was followed barely a generation […]

A Red Sea?

posted by jfletcher

Among the prophecies that really scare people are those contained in that famous book, Revelation. When the Apostle John recorded a series of strange visions at the end of the first century, even the prophet could not have known how […]

“Obscure Prophecy”

posted by jfletcher


”Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of […]

Human Nature Through History
Humanity never really changes. We often think "people are worse" now than ever before. Part of that is the 24/7 news cycle we can't seem to escape from. Yet I'm often struck by the commonality between eras and generations. The cuneiform ...
