“The Bible tells us the future of Israel. The Bible does not tell us the future of America.” (Video & notes from my address to the Watchmen on the Wall pastors conference in Washington, D.C.)

Addressing the Addressing the “Watchmen on the Wall” pastors conference in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, May 21, 2015.

(Washington, D.C.) — Today, I had the joy of addressing several hundred pastors from 43 states who are attending the “Watchmen On The Wall Conference” here in the American capital.

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins asked me to talk to the pastors, ministry leaders and wives about the importance of “Standing With Israel.”

Here is the heart of what I came to tell them:

“The Bible tells us the future of Israel. The Bible does not tell us the future of America. Not clearly. Not precisely.

“Bible prophecy tells us that Israel will be reborn as a geopolitical nation-state in the last days of history. It tells us that Jews will return to the Holy Land from exile all over the world in the last days of history, and that Jews will rebuild the ancient ruins in the land of…

Florida: “Nation Of Islam” Leader Given Podium In Christian Church Calls Upon 10,000 Men To “Rise Up And Kill”

MidnightWatcher's Blogspot

And the authorities will do nothing. As an unrepentant Muslim preacher of Islamist supremacy and hatred who denies the very foundations upon which the Christian faith stands, Louis Farrakhan should have never been allowed to step behind that pulpit in the first place. This is an abomination on many levels …

Jude 1:4-13, “For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord… Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain … They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted — twice dead. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.”

2 Cor 11:14-15, “… for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light … his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Cor 11:14-15, “… for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of…

Nine Reasons Discerning Women Are Leaving Your Church

Michelle Lesley

9 disc women leave

Earlier this week, Thom Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay, pubished a blog article entitled “Six Reasons Why Women May Be Leaving Your Church.” Although I am not particularly a fan of Dr. Rainer (due to his allowing heretical materials to be sold at LifeWay), I thought this article was a good one, and I agreed with several of the issues he raised, especially, that these issues need to be addressed by church leadership.

As a ministry wife and someone in the field of women’s ministry myself, I, too, have noticed women leaving the church. Not just women in general, but a certain subset of church-attending ladies: discerning women. While Scripture is pretty clear that we can expect women (and men) who are false converts to eventually fall away from the gathering of believers, why are godly, genuinely regenerated women who love Christ, His word, and His…

The darkest headlines I have read in years.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

"The Satanic Temple is set to unveil its...monument in Detroit." (AP/CBS Detroit) “The Satanic Temple is set to unveil its…monument in Detroit.” (AP/CBS Detroit)

Earlier this week, I flew back to the U.S. from Israel for several speaking engagements.

In the coming days, I will continue to write about the crumbling U.S.-Israel alliance, the Iran nuclear alliance, the horrific advance of the Islamic State across Syria and Iraq, and what happens to America, Israel and the nations of the Middle East according to Bible prophecy.

But I need to draw your attention to some of the most troubling headlines I have seen in years. The news in the Middle East is dark and getting darker, to be sure. But the headlines here in America are getting very dark as well — mass shootings around the nation (see here and here); Planned Parenthood executives caught discussing how best to sell hearts, lungs and brains from aborted babies; and now the unveiling of a sculpture of Satan in Detroit…

Why Israel is not this demonic, apartheid state some make it out to be

Jonathan Fenton-Harvey

Yair Lapid, Israel’s finance minister from 2013-14 made an exceptionally well-grounded point recently. He pointed out a classic and well-known British trait – support for the underdog, and how it has a knock-on effect towards many Briton’s attitudes to the on-going conflict between Israel and Gaza. Building on this, it is clear that this is the case – from looking at examples such as Britain opening its doors to an exodus of Belgian immigrants after the First World War, or even initially helping the much persecuted Jews regaining their homeland in Israel in 1946. Awareness of this bubbled to the surface after the Holocaust, where Jews were evidently the underdog under the Nazi rule.

The Israel-Gaza conflict seems to be displayed emphatically over the mainstream media. News outlets such as the BBC, or left-wing newspapers such as the Guardian or the Independent, appear to have a suggestive bias against Israel – in…
