Another Candidate

by Pastor Don Elmore

We are now more than two years away from the next Presidential election; and election that won’t make much difference to the United States.  As usual, the Banking cartel has picked the opponents on both sides of the election:  Democrats – Obama; Republicans – Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich proposes the end to Christianity and as a consequence terminates the old fashioned morality.  In other words, Newt wants the “New World Order” to soon come to pass and the Old America to disappear.

He recently, last year, changed his religious denomination from Southern Baptist to Roman Catholicism.  The former House Speaker, Bohemian Grove member and Council of Foreign Relationships is fitted to be a President of a nation that he would like to change.  You can find him on television shows constantly arguing for his positions.

Identifying Israel Part 10: The Genealogical Record

by Jim Jester

Complete series available in book format: Will the Real Israel Please Stand Up?

Hosea 4:6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….

So many people (including myself in the past) have wondered why the Bible includes genealogical records. The question seems to automatically pop into most peoples’ minds, “Why are these here? It doesn’t matter who you are.” And we skip over these records as insignificant to the Biblical revelation. But, there they are! They confront the Bible reader in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. There must be a good reason. It may be that this is what Hosea is talking about in the above verse: knowledge about the Law of Yahweh and knowledge about who we are! This is the point of knowing something about the genealogical record of the Bible. The response most preachers give regarding genealogy is, “God cares about everybody and knows us by name.” That may sound sweet and caring, but that’s not a serious response from a theological point of view. Any serious Bible student knows that every scripture must fit together in harmony with the Bible as a whole, and hopefully with the established doctrines of their particular church.
