  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped

    How the Judges of Israel Overlapped

    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

    The Believers Authourity

    When God created you in His image , He looked at you with pride and proclaimed a blessing over you: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it. {Gen1:28 KJV} Before I go on, please substitute YOUR name for "THEM" in the verse above. God created you to be productive, to increase and to be of value and to impact all of creation.Your life must be of utmost relevance to all the earth! You see God means what He...

  • Who were the "sons of God" in Genesis 6?

    Who were the "sons of God" in Genesis 6?

    Though not dogmatic about the issue, I believe a case can be made that the "sons of God" refer to godly descendants of Adam, rather than fallen angels, and "daughters of men" to ungodly heathen women. The one question that most suggests the "sons" may have been supernatural is, "why would the union of ordinary godly men and ungodly women produce such extraordinary children?" After all, the union between godly and ungodly people today do not produce unusual offspring, so

  • The Two Women

    The Two Women

    Most Christians are familiar with the allegory of the Church as a chaste virgin betrothed to Christ--faithfully awaiting His return to gather her to Himself for a marriage everlasting. Yet, Scripture actually reveals two "women" who have existed together upon the earth throughout the history of mankind--symbolizing two groups of people: one, the Lord's faithful, and the other, Satan's deceived. One embodies faith and righteousness, the other, rebellion and wickedness. Shortly after the Fall in...

    Chipped Humans and Humanities

    Humanities on Mars

    It is necessary to have mastery of sciences for a voyage to Mars. Finances cannot be ignored either. But, after that, what? Why generate the related technology and for what purpose? Are only the computers going to live in a new colony to be established on Mars?

    Since 1960s, there has been a gradual change in the educations patterns. Instead of learning how humans get along with each other, now only ‘learning money making’ skills are...

  • Seeing is Believing?

    Seeing is Believing?

    "Show me some proof of God's existence, and I'll believe in him." Ever heard that one? It's akin to the old adage, "seeing is believing." But these are examples of the distorted thinking of the world with regard to the ways of God. The fact is, one cannot truly believe in something that has been proven, for belief and proof are mutually exclusive. If we physically see something, it's proven, so faith doesn't even enter into the picture. At times, we may even have trouble believing what our...

    The Calendar of Enoch

    Dead Sea Scrolls Reveal Hidden Calendar It is not surprising that the book of beginnings has something to say about the invention of ancient crafts. We might wonder, upon reading these brief examples, if other arts besides farming, music and metal craft, could have also been mentioned? Apparently there was. In the book of Jubilees, an extra-biblical writing found among the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran, comes this additional claim: So, to Enoch son of Jared, is credited the honour of ...

  • Assumptions

    Assumptions

    When we make assumptions regarding Biblical scripture, do we risk changing the meaning or message of the gospel? “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Galations 1:8-9 These words should be familiar to all Christians but is the meaning really understood? The gospel...

    Weimar Shadow of Future Things

    Introduction Many cultures have made monumental contributions to the development of our great Western Judaeo-Christian civilisation, not least that of Germany, one of the most purely artistic, poetic, musical and spiritual nations in modern history. Yet it could be said that the greatest and most blessed nations are those most liable to decadence, a word which seems to seems to suggest both moral decline and a dark, sinister glamour; and few societies have been more associated with this latter...

  • From Avant Garde to Global Village

    From Avant Garde to Global Village

    Introduction It could justifiably be stated that we are currently living in a Western World whose moral world view owes much to values which until recently were associated with progressives operating within the arts, politics, philosophy, religion etc., and that this morality remains more or less constant, affecting everything from top to bottom in our society, despite sporadic shifts of power from the political left to the right. At the same time, traditional morality – founded on the West’s ...
