    The Prophecy of Tyre

    The Prophecy of Tyre

    About 2 1/2 to 3 years after the Lord predicted this prophecy against Tyre in 588 b.c., Nebuchadnezzar began his siege of Tyre. The way in which the Babylonians overcame a city was to surround it, cut off their food supply, and gradually starve the people into surrender. This was the method that Nebuchadnezzar used as he eventually overcame Jerusalem. The Babyloninas surrounded the city of Jerusalem, and cut off their food supply. When Jerusalm used up all of their food 2 years later, they became so hungry they were eating their own children, which incidentally the Lord had also also predicted. Jerusalem became so weakened by starvation that Nebuchadnezzar easily overcame the cityand took it captive.

    The city of Tyre was a completely different matter… Tyre was on the coast of the mediterranean sea. The walls of the city went all the way up to the sea completely cutting off Tyre from any land attack. As He had done with Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar cut off all of Tyre’s food and water supply on the mainland, but he could not cut off Tyre’s food supply from the sea because their Phoenician navy was so powerful. Tyre also had plenty of fresh water suppl. Archeologists have discovered an underground spring in the ruins of Tyre that produces over 10 million gallons of fresh water per day! The siege by Nebuchadnezzar over Tyre took 13 years.

  • Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    A recent archaeological discovery dated from the first century, confirms that those in the early church believed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as their own future resurrection from the dead, if they would trust Christ.

    Officially labeled as NCE 156 and written in the Greek language on stone, the text of the inscription reveals the Biblical belief in a “Bridal Chamber” awaiting those who die in Christ. The promise given by Jesus at our death, or that we should be alive when He comes for His church, is that we will be His Bride.

    John 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

    1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

    The idea of a Bridal chamber came from an old testament verse that describes a time of indignation or wrath occurring on the earth, while those who trust in the Savior as His Bride, will be hidden in that chamber until the indignation has passed.

    Isaiah 26:19-21 Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    God has intervened into the affairs of mankind many times. The original King James Bible faithfully records these events. And it is always exciting to discover archaeological remains that increase our understanding of these historical events. It is a tragic fact that many “secular” records have been found that totally confirm history as presented in the Bible but portions of these have been intentionally destroyed or hidden by “scholars” (evolutionists\atheists) who take it upon themselves to “manage” archaeological evidence to suit their own deceptive purposes. The Turin Papyrus, which was prepared in the late 18th dynasty and included lists of all the kings of every dynasty of ancient Egypt through the 18th, was found in a temple excavation during the 19th century. The King of Sardinia carefully preserved it and entrusted it to some “scholars” at Turin for translation. It arrived in perfect condition but the “scholars” destroyed or hid most of it because they realized that it proved the “long dynastic” history of Egypt to be untrue. To “explain” the “changed condition” of the papyrus, they accused the king of Sardinia of sending it “unwrapped”. The Palermo Stone contained a similar list, and while many “scholars” quote from “missing parts” of the stone, “unapproved researchers” can only have access to a few fragments. It is obvious that the stone was “broken” recently as all inner edges of the fragments show recent fracture conditions.

    A leading “archaeologist” on the board of B.A.R. once said to me in the presence of Mary Nell, ” Your problem, Ron, is that you excavate a location to see what is there; you should decide what you want to be there first and then make it turn out that way”. Mary Nell had refused to believe me when I told her that this is what archaeologists do. She was shocked to hear it “from the horse’s mouth”.

    Those of you who like to “dig” through history books might wish to read ARCHAIC EGYPT by W.B. Emery-Penguin Books Reprint 1984. This author is one of the rare few who admit how truly limited our knowledge of ancient Egypt is: “Unfortunately, our knowledge of the archaic hieroglyphs is so limited that reliable translation of these invaluable texts is at present beyond our power and we can only pick out odd words and groups which give us only the vaguest interpretations.” (p. 59.) Yet, in the majority of books, translations and conclusions are never stated as being theory; they are stated as firm fact.

    Dinosaurs and Men Together?

    Dinosaurs and Men Together?

    According to most contemporary geologists and paleontologists, the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period. We can see them today, certainly, as petrified remains in the rock walls at Dinosaur National Monument or on display at The Field Museum in Chicago. We can buy bits and pieces of them in little plastic bags at roadside fossil shops in Colorado or New Mexico or Montana. We can dream about them. However, living dinosaurs have been separated from humanity by many millions of years, according to the geologists.

    That’s what they believe.

    A growing collection of evidence, though, seems to tell a different story. It’s not a popular story, and students at most major universities risk the disgust of their professors if they try to talk about it, but it appears the paleontologists spoke too quickly after all. Between dinosaur art on grave rocks in Ica Peru, dinosaur tracks with human tracks at the Paluxy River, and bones found “out of place” in the fossil record, there are plenty of remnants from a time when dinosaurs and humans walked the earth together.

    Goliath’s Home Town Found

    Goliath’s Home Town Found

    An ongoing archaeological excavation in Tel Tzafit continues to unearth the ruins of what was once the city of Gat — described in the Bible as the hometown of Goliath. Professor Aren Maeir, who is directing the dig, spoke to Arutz Sheva’s Hebrew-language news service to discuss the latest finds. Recent finds from the Tel Tzafit excavation are “fascinating,” Maeir said. The site, inhabited at times by Canaanites and at other times by Philistines, has remnants from many periods of history. “We are focusing on the Canaanite period, the Philistine period, and the Israelite period, and for now we’re primarily in the Philistine period,” he said. One of the most interesting finds was a piece of writing containing, among other things, Philistine names, some of which were similar to the name “Goliath.”

    Ancient Man No Different From Modern Man

    Ancient Man No Different From Modern Man

    In this interesting study from the National Academy of Science, studies show that in comparing the DNA of ancient man with the DNA of modern man, there is very little difference. This would be impossible if the Theory of Evolution were true. As there has never been found any transitional species in the fossil record, there is now conclusive evidence that there is also no evolutionary process in the development of man. The facts of science are that man today is virtually identical with the first man. This means that human beings did not evolve from apes and give strong evidence that man was created fully formed by an intelligent being.

    Noah’s Ark Found on Mount Ararat

    Noah’s Ark Found on Mount Ararat

    The remains of Noah’s Ark have been discovered 13,000 feet up a Turkish mountain — according to a sensational claim by evangelical explorers.
    A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah’s Ark.
    The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.
    Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah’s Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”
    There have been several reported discoveries of the remains of Noah’s Ark over the years, most notably a find by archaeologist Ron Wyatt in 1987. At the time, the Turkish government officially declared a national park around his find, a boat-shaped object stretched across the mountains of Ararat.

    Evidence of Jesus Found in the Dead Sea Scrolls

    Evidence of Jesus Found in the Dead Sea Scrolls

    If someone had asked a minister in 1947 to prove that the original Hebrew Scriptures from the Old Testament were reliably copied without error throughout the last two thousand years, he might have had some difficulty in providing an answer. The oldest Old Testament manuscript used by the King James translators was dated approximately A.D. 1100. Obviously, that old manuscript from A.D. 1100 was a copy of a copy of a copy, etc. for over two thousand years. How could we be sure that the text in the A.D. 1100 copy of the Scriptures was identical with the original text as given to the writers by God and inspired by Him? However, an extraordinary discovery occurred in the turbulent year before Israel became a nation. A Bedouin Arab found a cave in Qumran near the Dead Sea which ultimately yielded over a thousand priceless manuscripts dating back before A.D. 68, when the Roman legions destroyed the Qumran village during the Jewish war against Rome.

    A Quantum Hologram of Christ’s Resurrection?

    A Quantum Hologram of Christ’s Resurrection?

    The Shroud of Turin is arguably the single most studied artifact in human history. It is a piece of ancient linen measuring 14 feet 3 inches long by 3 feet 7 inches wide. The bloodstained surface of the Shroud is marked with a negative image of the undistorted front and back sides of a naked man who appears to have been severely beaten and crucified—an ancient Roman form of torture and execution.

    For centuries, based on the Gospel accounts, many Christians have believed that Christ’s body was wrapped in the Shroud when He was placed in a borrowed tomb in Jerusalem 2000 years ago.

    In 2004, Dame Piczek became fascinated by the total absence of distortion of the Shroud image, a physical impossibility if the body had been lying on solid rock. Piczek’s work strongly suggests that the image of Jesus was projected as a quantum hologram onto the cloth as His body underwent the process of Resurrection.

    Ancient Primate Fossil Roils Scientific Community

    Ancient Primate Fossil Roils Scientific Community

    (March 5) -Touted as “the missing link” between humans and early primates, a 47-million-year-old fossil appears to be an ancestor to lemurs instead, a newly released study says. The debate, however, seems far from over, and it illuminates the often tricky relationship between science and the media.
    Last spring, when Norwegian paleontologist Jorn Hurum and his colleagues announced the unveiling of “Ida,” an unusually complete prehistoric primate fossil, it was portrayed in newspaper and television reports as a blockbuster discovery nothing short of an “eighth wonder of the world” that would offer a look at one of mankind’s earliest evolutionary ancestors.

    Dead Sea Scrolls are Important Discovery in Biblical Archeology

    Dead Sea Scrolls are Important Discovery in Biblical Archeology

    The Dead Sea Scrolls saga is an epic that would have made Hollywood director Cecil B. DeMille twitch with envy.
    The story has all the elements of DeMille’s “Ten Commandments” and more, everything from biblical prophecies and international intrigue to an ancient treasure map.
    The Milwaukee Public Museum’s exhibit “Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible: Ancient Artifacts, Timeless Treasures,” running Jan. 22 through June 6, is an epic production in its own right. Five years in the making, it’s the largest temporary exhibit ever produced by the museum. The show contains more than 200 items from scroll fragments to pages from medieval Bibles.
    The exhibit is designed to explain the importance of the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran beginning in 1947. These parchments have shed new light on the Bible itself and on the times in which the Old Testament was created.

    King David Era Pottery Shard Supports Biblical Narrative

    King David Era Pottery Shard Supports Biblical Narrative

    IsraelNN.com) A breakthrough in the research of the Hebrew Scriptures has shed new light on the period in which the Bible books of the Prophets were written. Professor Gershon Galil of the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa has deciphered an inscription dating from the 10th century BCE (the period of King David’s reign) and has proven the inscription to be ancient Hebrew, thus making it the earliest known example of Hebrew writing.
    The significance of this breakthrough relates to the fact that at least some of the Biblical scriptures are now proven to have been composed hundreds of years before the dates presented today in research and that the Kingdom of Israel already existed at that time.
    The inscription itself, which was written in ink on a 15×16.5cm trapezoid pottery shard, was discovered a year and a half ago at excavations that were carried out by Professor Yosef Garfinkel near the Elah valley, south of Jerusalem, and west of Hevron.

    THAT they led the enormous floating wildlife collection aboard two by two is well known. Less familiar, however, is the possibility that the animals Noah shepherded on to his ark then went round and round inside.
    According to newly translated instructions inscribed in ancient Babylonian on a clay tablet telling the story of the ark, the vessel that saved one virtuous man, his family and the animals from God’s watery wrath was not the pointy-prowed craft of popular imagination but rather a giant circular reed raft.

    Is the Bible the Word of God?

    Is the Bible the Word of God?

    There is really a very simple way that we can test the Bible to see if it is the Word of God, or is ist just the word of man. Predictive Prophecy.

    If I told you that I am God, you could test my claim by testing my power. An Almighty God who knows all things would be able to tell me what was going to happen in the future with precision.

    The Bible is unlike any other book in the World in that it claims to be able to tell us not only what is going to happen in our futiure, but the entire future of planet earth, and the Universe itself.

    There is no other document that has ever been found that has a record of 100 percent accuracy in the prediction of future events. The God of the Bible asks the question “Who will you compare to me…”

    What is the Age of the Earth?

    What is the Age of the Earth?

    The Big Bang Theory is an attempt to explain the origin of the universe without the need for a Creator. One obvious difficulty with the theory is the evident order in the universe, galactic walls, precise distances of earth, sun and moon etc. that cannot have arisen from an explosion! Then the great problem of there being insufficient mass in the universe and the need to appeal to “dark matter” to account for the supposed accretion of the sub-atomic particles. Comets provide tangible evidence for a universe of limited age. Comets consist of ice and dust: Haley’s comet is a long period comet and returns to our solar system every 76 years, at which time it loops around our sun then returns to outer space. During the four to five months it remains within our solar system it loses water by sublimation at 10 tons per second leaving a trail of dust and gets visibly smaller. The fact that we see comets at all indicates just a few thousand years otherwise they would have all been used up long ago. In 1950 Jan H. Oort (1900-1992) proposed that there is a great cloud of comets beyond our solar system to account for the continuing existence of comets. There is not a shred of evidence for it.

    Why Do Evolutionists Claim Billions of Years?

    It was assumed that the distribution of the fossils in the strata was perceived to represent a record of the evolution of life throughout earth’s history. This notion had originally been proposed by the Greeks. But it was Charles Darwin who later provided a mechanism by which one life form was believed to have become another. The multiple millions of years were equally as essential to him for his theory to work. Again, the same argument was used for the evolution of life: it all takes place so slowly that it can’t be see

    Temple Warning To Gentiles Found

    Temple Warning To Gentiles Found

    When king Herod had rebuilt the Temple in Jerusalem between 19 and 9 B.C. he enclosed the outer court with colonnades. The large separated area was referred to as the Court of the Gentiles because the “gentiles” (non-Jews from any race or religion) were permitted to enter this great open courtyard of the Temple area. They could walk within in it but they were forbidden to go any further than the outer court. They were excluded from entering into any of the inner courts, and warning signs in Greek and Latin were placed giving strict warning that the penalty for such trespass was death.
