Winepress of Wrath

posted by jfletcher

In the book of Revelation, Jesus Christ is poised to “tread the winepress” of His wrath, in defeating His enemies. As He stepped out of the tomb on Resurrection morning, I wonder what He was thinking. Oddly enough, a few […]

A New Heart

posted by jfletcher

Another clear sign we are in the last days is the issue of Jewish religious life. Unfortunately, too many of my Christian friends say things like, “How can you support Israel? Those people aren’t even religious.” How sad. How pathetic. […]

No Weapon Formed

posted by jfletcher

Another sure sign that we are living in the biblical last days is seen in Israel’s coastal plain, where most of the country’s population resides. Tel Aviv, the second-largest city, with over 400,000 residents, is home to much of Israel’s […]

Made in the shade

For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the […]

Many “signs”

posted by jfletcher

I’m never afraid to say that even though probably a majority of people around the world today would equate the study of Bible prophecy with flat-earth advocacy, I know prophecy is legitimate and relevant for our times. Just this past […]

Healing Wounds and Hearts

posted by jfletcher

I’ve been interested in Israel and the Middle East for the past 15 years. Growing up in a conservative Christian home, I heard all the arguments from Scripture that we should support Israel. My story is not uncommon, though. I […]

What is Truth?

posted by jfletcher

One can imagine Pontius Pilate, elegant and earthy at the same time, asking Jesus to tell him how to find truth. This is the great unknown in our world. Jesus, the Christ, said in John 14:6 that He is the […]

Another Fine Mess

posted by jfletcher

I’m always amazed by the sheer numbers and variety of opponents of Bible prophecy. Oddly enough, it is from the Christian community that the most odious criticism falls on our heads. One gets the feeling that our critics think we […]

Does Anyone Care?

posted by jfletcher

Whenever I have a conversation with a liberal Christian, which is often, and the subject is the Arab-Israeli conflict, my conversation partner never seems terribly interested in the existential threats to Jews in Israel. I ask if the security fence […]

Sticking Point

posted by jfletcher

One of the little-known sites for tourists in Jerusalem is a small street on the east side of the Old City. It leads to Lion’s Gate, where Israeli forces broke through on June 7, 1967, and re-took the city. It […]

Rage

The Bible says Jesus will return to the earth in the last days. A lot of people have a problem with that.

Sacrifice on Yom Kippur

posted by jfletcher

The holiest day on the Jewish calendar is called Yom Kippur (“The Day of Atonement”). It is marked by a 25-hour fast and prayer time. Yom Kippur is a time of deep personal reflection, and it is especially poignant to […]

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 ...
