…we discuss the cycle of decadence, decay, and destruction written in the book of Genesis, take a closer look at the story of Lot and the angels who visited him with a warning, show the scientific evidence that supports the existence and abrupt end of these cities, and draw parallels between the cycle established in the Old Testament and the one we’re in today.
12:50 Actual remains of Sodom and Gomorrah shown!
1430 “The story of Sodom and Gomorrah is not a fairy tale. It actually happened, and is recorded in the most read book of all history for a reason, as a warning.”
16:45 “Do you reckon they had a drag queen story hour in Sodom and Gomorrah?”
Kobe Bryant’s Books Are Bringing Sports Fantasy to Young Readers—’Develop Your Own Inner Magic’
…Bryant set out last spring to create the next beloved YA book franchise with The Wizenard Series, an intersection of Harry Potter-esque fantasy and traditional sports. On March 31, the second volume, The Wizenard Series: Season One will hit bookshelves, once again offering young readers magic, basketball and self-discovery.
Landmark, very important show today! The only thing I disagree with is Rick saying everything with the Jews has been fulfilled. Paul clearly says in Romans 11 that the true Jews will be saved after the fullness of the Gentiles happens. There is no other way to interpret what Paul said.
16:55 Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small reads John 15 to Donald Trump, who heard the abiding part, and what happens to those who don’t abide, but then Trump talked with the man next to him, missing Jesus’ desire that our joy would be full, when we abide in the Vine, walking in love.
21:43 Trump challenged to love his enemies. His reaction shows he heard and understood the challenge.
24:44 Rick Wiles’ example: loving and forgiving our enemies — ‘no hate.’
29:30 “I’ve seen people needlessly suffer. I’ve seen them go to the grave with their diseases, unwilling to forgive.” – Rick Wiles
“When we refuse to forgive as a Christian, our sins are not forgiven by God the Father. … Forgiveness of others is mandatory, required if you want God to forgive your sins. … If you are unwilling to forgive even one person in this life, your sins that you have committed since you’ve been born-again, your sins aren’t forgiven. Jesus said if you won’t forgive your brother God the Father will not forgive you.”
31:25 “So it’s a sad thing to watch President Trump and Nancy Pelosi sit there at the prayer breakfast fume and steam, and have hatred and bitterness and unforgiveness in their hearts towards each other. It’s sad.”
10:35 “I don’t think you can be a sincere pagan anymore.” ‘Pagans’ want to act out their sexual impulses without any guilt. “You’re going to say the guilt came from Christianity, so you become an enemy of Christianity.” “I don’t see any sincerity in this whatsoever,” because people know about Jesus and God now. “You can’t pretend you don’t know things.”
33:45 Plato and Aristotle’s forms explained
38:50 ~”The world can’t create itself out of nothing because it would have to exist before it existed.”
48:45 “The evil fruit of William of Ockham was Martin Luther, which was an attack on reason, which the west has never recovered from. Hagel is an example of what I’m talking about. He succumbed to that irrationality for the same reason Luther did: couldn’t control his passions. And instead of saying ‘I’m sorry,’ he said ‘I’m going to make wrong right,’ and that is the unforgivable sin. And we’re still living with the consequence of that. I discuss all of this in my book, ‘Logos Rising.'”
50:00 Jones sees Logos rising since: “The Protestant version of Christianity was doomed to expire [I would agree, if we’re meaning Luther’s invention that we don’t have to overcome sin by God’s grace – ed.]. Its shelf life ran out after about 500 years. And so in the year 2000, this Lutheran church was disestablished as the official church of Sweden. And at that point, you have the rise of these neopagan surrogates.”
50:45 Hitler tried to unite Germany under paganism.
51:00 Tolkien got the idea of the ring from Wagner, but missed a main point. Jones believes Wagner meant the rheingold to refer to usury which enslaved people, privatizing the wealth of a nation. Talmudic.
Trump planned and assassinated the man most responsible for defeating ISIS, whom the CIA and Mossad created. ISIS has even thanked Trump. “And now, Mr. Trump, you’ve given a new generation of Arabs a reason to hate the United States.”
I just found this incredible song yesterday, Christmas day 2019, surprised that it’s been out for years, as I love this complex and powerful Trans-Siberian Orchestra style, and Jeff Beck tones!
“Miraculum” is an amazing three-movement instrumental incorporating these five songs in what appears to me to mainly be in this order until the complicated ending: “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “We Three Kings,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night.”
The photographer shot it with a Canon 6D with 70-200mm f2.8L lens, zoomed to 200mm, using the internal mic, and with tired arms, he says — difficult to hold the telephoto steady.
How the Creator of ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Got the Gospel Past CBS Execs
December 24, 2019
Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas has been a tradition for millions since it first aired on December 9, 1965. While many love the iconic Vince Guaraldi score, the humor and the animation, one part of the special has always stood out and made it unique: Linus’s recitation of the Gospel of Luke.
Explaining the true meaning of Christmas in a network television special broadcast to millions was a controversial move, even 54 years ago. In 2015, The Washington Post published a retrospective on A Charlie Brown Christmas. Michael Cavna explained Peanuts creator Charles Schulz’s mission in making the special:
Charles Schulz insisted on one core purpose: A Charlie Brown Christmas had to be about something. Namely, the true meaning of Christmas. Otherwise, Schulz said, “Why bother doing it?”
Jesus Christ vs Santa Claus: Santa truly has been created to be a counterfeit Jesus to the Secular World!
When we carefully compare the myth of Santa Claus versus the real Biblical story of Jesus Christ, we are presented with the shocking truth that Santa has been thoroughly created to replace Jesus Christ in too many people’s lives. …
Who could possibly have arranged a celebration that encourages your kids to direct their petitions to Santa instead of to God? Call the Santa hotline, write Santa a letter? Put out food and drink offerings for him?Continue reading “Who Invented Santa?”→
The only words of Hitler that appear to be Christian were the public propaganda to the masses, who were largely ‘Christian.’ Hitler’s trusted inner circle’s words and his words to his trusted inner circle, his policies and how the Hitler youth were indoctrinated tell the true story.
Albert Speer, Inside the Third Reich, p. 115, quoting Hitler:
“You see, it’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion.Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?”
Otto Diedrich wrote in The Hitler I Knew:
“[publicly, Hitler] Talked of providence but “personally was sharply hostile to Christianity and the churches” (154).
Iraqi Christian burned alive by ISIS three times miraculously survives, sees Jesus in vision
JUNE 02, 2019
The Yazidi man was interviewed for a documentary, “Heart and Hands: Iraq,” by Sean Feucht, head of the non-profit Light A Candle Project, and Bethel Music. In it, Feucht travels the world to hear the stories of those persecuted for their faith.
In a preview of the documentary aired at the Heaven Come conference in LA, the Yazidi man reveals there was “pressure” from ISIS to convert to Islam. But amid persecution, Jesus appeared to him in a dream. …
Later in the interview, the man revealed that once ISIS found out he was a follower of Christ, they began stoning him.
“They were hitting me with big rocks on my body,” he recalled. “The stones were fine, not affecting me.”
