Trump’s Wall Will Be a Miniature Compared to the Size of Babylon’s Wall

When Donald Trump campaigned for the U.S. presidency last year, his signature promise was to stop illegal immigration along the nearly 2,000-mile border between the U.S. and Mexico by building "a big, beautiful wall" there. Occasionally, Mr. Trump said this wall that he envisioned would be fifty feet tall or more. That is pretty tall.One time I played golf in Morocco--in the king's tournament. I and some of my family who accompanied me did group travel to the ancient city of Marrakech. It … [Read more...]

Christians Fleeing North Sinai Due to ISIS

Hundreds of Christian families are fleeing their homes in the Egyptian territory of the North Sinai due to threats and killings by ISIS. On February 19, the Egypt chapter of ISIS released a video calling Coptic Orthodox Christians, who are most prominent in Egypt, “our priority and our preferred prey.” Most are fleeing for Cairo or thereabouts.I have blogged before about this increasing turmoil in the North Sinai. I suspect that it is another development leading to the eventual formation of a … [Read more...]

Doug Coe Has Died

Doug Coe died last Tuesday at the age of 88. He suffered from recent "complications following a heart attack and stroke." Who was Doug Coe? In 2005, Time magazine named him as one of the 25 most influential Evangelicals in the U.S. I think he was that for decades prior, but it was little known. Doug stayed out of the spotlight even though he lived next to our nation's capital and ministered there to the most famous of people.Doug Coe was like Jesus wherein the Bible says, "Now the Jewish … [Read more...]

The Doomsday Clock Moves Closer to Midnight

In recent years, the world has become a more dangerous place in which to live. This is indicated by the Doomsday Clock. This metaphorical graphic is the brainchild of scientists who banded together in 1947 to form the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. The impetus for this organization and its Doomsday Clock was the U.S. dropping two atomic bombs on Japan two years earlier, which soon led to the ending of WWII. These scientists were worried about the future development of atomic weapons and … [Read more...]

Get Another Two-State Solution!

As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's tenure ends in a few days, he will be making a final push advocating the traditional two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict when he attends a Paris peace conference this weekend. He had implemented President Barak Obama's strategy weeks ago at the UN by abstaining from voting for or against a UN Security Council Resolution 2334. It condemned as illegal according to international law Israel's decades-long Jewish settlements program in the … [Read more...]

Junichiro Koisumi Calls for Japan to Abandon Nuclear Energy

In 1941, a very militaristic Japan unjustly and unmercifully attacked the U.S. at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. They did it submarines firing explosives and airplanes dropping bombs. About 2,800 Americans, nearly all in the military, were killed. Until then, the U.S. had refused to join WWII in Europe. But this attack caused it to enter the war.In 1945, the U.S. became the first nation to develop and manufacture the first atomic bomb. To end the war with Japan, in August, 1945, the U.S. dropped two … [Read more...]

Doomsday Clock Looms Larger in 2017

The metaphorical Doomsday Clock is an image of a clock with its hour and minute hands set close to midnight. It was created in 1947 by concerned American scientists who were members of the Manhattan Project that had created the atomic bomb. Two such bombs were then dropped on Japan that helped end WWII in late 1945.Only weeks afterwards, these scientists created the non-profit organization Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. They did so because, even though they had created the atomic bomb, … [Read more...]

Trump Moves the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Closer to Bible Prophecy

I blogged fifteen months about the U.S. presidential election. I wrote nearly thirty posts expressing my objection to Donald Trump as president. Yet I believe he has a superior position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict than nearly all other non-Jewish parties think. He's got half of the puzzle right; he just needs to get the rest of it put together. If I may say so without appearing arrogant, that's where I come in with my book, Palestine Is Coming: The Revival of Ancient … [Read more...]
