"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

AFTER HIS KIND

By James Fire

We live in an amazing time of rapidly increasing technology. There are some Sociologists who refer to our current time period as a 'technocracy' – where our culture and everyday life is intricately interwoven with our technology and governed by technological experts, particularly where computers and the Internet are concerned. The level of advancement in computing power and information processing in our day and age is staggering.

Consider:


Everyone today has a smart phone, with micro-miniaturized circuitry that enables these palm sized gadgets to function as hand-held computers. The average smart phone in 2016 has more computing power than the NASA Command Center had during the days of the Apollo missions to the Moon back in the 1960’s!

The GOSPEL of MATTHEW: Ch. 24 – The MESSIAH and HIS KINGDOM MESSAGE

By James Fire

The LORD, after His triumphant entry into the City of Peace, riding humbly on a donkey left the people of Jerusalem with a solemn warning. They would not see Him again (once His mission of atoning for the sins of the world was completed), until His return to Earth, greeted by their worshipful hails of “Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord”. He spoke of His protective guard over His people being removed, and the desolation of the land.

Immediately afterwards, we come to chapter 24 in the Gospel account, and it seems that the LORD and His disciples are departing from the Temple, and He Who build all of creation both the seen and the unseen is given a tour by them of the constructed monument built by Herod the Great. I would presume He wasn’t all that impressed . . . 

Again, the LORD issues another solemn warning which entails the destruction of the Temple – and this happened in 70 AD by order of Caesar, which was carried out by General Titus Vespasian.  

This stunning declaration prompted the disciples to ask three questions: When will these things be (the destruction of the Temple)? What shall be the sign of the LORD’s coming (The LORD’s return which He spoke of previously in Chapter 23), and of the end of the world (age)?
