Is it the End of the World?

“Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory. The vision I saw was like the vision I had seen when he[a] came…

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 tablets unearthed in Mesopotamia in the last couple centuries attest to that. Financial records,…

We are all on our own individual journey. No matter who we are or where we live, we have similar issues. Even if we are not outwardly emotional or appear to be stoic, the big questions of life confront each one of us at some point. At his country estate at Down, the British naturalist…

I just returned from the Mid-America Prophecy Conference, seeing many dear friends. The conversations alone were salve for a tired soul. The very language I just used hearkens back to the “old time religion” that is largely gone from our society today. That has changed even in media. We’ve gone from Barney and Andy leaving…

At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise globally—from the Middle East to Europe to college campuses—there is also a lot of good news for pro Israel supporters. Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is nearing three million members, a staggering number. CUFI has deluxe programs, ranging from church seminars to campus chapters successfully fighting…

I just returned from speaking at a church on the East Coast, and it was instructive for several reasons. My topic was Israel and her “place among the nations.” Turnout was excellent but at dinner that evening, the pastor gave me a lay of the land, literally. He said that in his county alone, there…

The first time I drove down to the Dead Sea, I almost ran off the road when acres of palm groves began dotting the barren landscape of the Judean Hills. What is this? I wondered. It was part of my awakening with regard to Israeli innovation. It is nothing less than astonishing. Since then, I’ve…

Everyone wants a miracle. People from all walks of life, literally, want a miracle. Some suffer physically, others in relationships. In today’s economy, just getting through each day financially is often a catastrophic undertaking. Some people pray for miracles, others simply hope. From time to time, a legitimate miracle is available for all to see.…

We get it each presidential election cycle: campaign promises that evaporate after the party is over. This year, a particularly annoying promise is again sure to be broken. “I will move America’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem!” No, you won’t. In 1995, Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act. It required the U.S. embassy to…

This coming week, I am privileged to speak at a pro Israel seminar in California. Hosted by my great friend, Pastor Chris Quintana, the event will take place (and be live-streamed) at Calvary Chapel Cypress. Beginning Sunday evening and running through Monday (March 13 and 14), speakers include Dr. Alex Grobman, a leading Holocaust scholar;…
