In the 1650's an Anglican bishop named James Ussher published his 'Annals of the World', subtitled, ''The Origin of Time, and Continued to the Beginning of the Emperor Vespasian's Reign and the Total Destruction and Abolition of the Temple and Commonwealth of the Jews.''

Putin - New Boss on the Block
March 24, 2017 - Israel - Middle East
In a previous column I mentioned the interaction between Putin and Netanyahu. Putin informed the Israeli Prime Minister that this wasn't 500 BC. In other words - despite its rhetoric - Iran wasn't planning another Jewish genocide.
Does God Have Attitude?

“You have a real attitude problem!”
A Divine Déjà vu
March 22, 2017 - Commentary on the News
I’m guessing that you, like me followed with more than a little interest the speculation on the state of Trump’s salvation. Saved? Or still enslaved? No way, really, for onlookers to tell. There will be those who come in slightly singed, remember, —as if barely snatched from the fires of hell. (1 Corinthians 3:15) While we wait to see what fruit The Donald yields, however, there’s one thing that seems beyond doubt, especially if you factor in the Book of Nehemiah. His election was a divine decision.
The Black Swan
March 20, 2017 - Witnessing Tools
Probably the three most contentious points of scripture are the Creation, Jesus Christ’s first advent, and His Second Advent. These are under more attack, by more agencies both inside and out of Christendom than almost any other. The truth is, very few people believe in an actual literal return of our Lord and Savior. It is more akin to that bumper sticker I’ve seen from time to time that states: "Jesus is coming back, look busy".
Return of the Peacemakers
March 17, 2017 - In Defense of the Faith
Putin recently informed Netanyahu that we were no longer living in the 5th century BC. I'm not sure what the Israeli Prime Minister thought of that remark but I'm betting he didn't jump on the phone to announce the good news to Mossad.

Suppose you woke up tomorrow morning, turned on the news to check the weather and there was no news, only a Please Stand By message from Homeland Security. You hit the remote, check CNN… same message. FOX News, BBC and local stations are the same, a message from homeland security. What would you think? What would you do?
Rock of Ages
March 15, 2017 - Witnessing Tools
You may remember that hubby and I went to England this year; one place we visited was the British side of the English Channel, famous for the White Cliffs of Dover. We paid $100 for a tour out to Dover, rather indulgent since the only motive was memories of my mom singing the famous WW2 song: There’ll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of cover, someday, just you wait and see….. As it turns out, however, it paid off in other ways. Because it’s actually an awesome proof of Noah’s flood.

The three most dreaded words in the Army are, double time, March! For those not familiar with military drill and ceremony commands, this just means start running. Military folk has a far greater appreciation for and sensitivity to time in a way that most civilians cannot fully appreciate. For instance, if you’re not ten minutes early to an event, you’re late. If you have a formation at 0600 (depending on the level of formation-Division, Brigade, Battalion, Company) that really means you have to be there at 0530 (at the latest). Deployments? I think we invented the phrase “hurry up and wait.”
The Empire Strikes Back
March 10, 2017 - Commentary on the News
The Empire strikes back. They say power is like a drug. Once one has had a good taste, it can be difficult to give up. The following is my opinion and subject to fair criticism.

Abraham lived in the city of Ur in the land of the Chaldees, 4,000 years ago, not far from the biblical location of the Garden of Eden. He is considered the father of the Hebrew people. If anyone ever asks where the Jewish folk came from, that’s it. Abraham and Sarah.
