Renaissance of Hope
“Circumstantial evidence should also be considered… You look at the world and you hang your head in shame. It is so sad to see mankind destroying each other and choosing this world over God. In every aspect of life, we see the God of the universe and His creation on two different roads. One is filled with love, patience, kindness, and salvation, where the other is filled with hate, murder, adultery, and perversion. No wonder our world is in such a mess. Creation is groaning for the day when the Father will make all things new.
The United States should have never taken its protection off Israel!. The US is slowly distancing itself from Israel while aiding her enemies. As the US is drawing away, Israel will soon find another protector which will bring her real salvation, namely Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). The situation in the Middle East is precarious, and at any given moment hostilities can break out. Iran and Russia are using Syria to draw Israel into a war, and they may be successful. In February, Iranian President, Ahmadinejad visited Egypt and received a welcome from Morsi the Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood… this is also to be a warning alarm! At the same time that all this was taking place, a surprise announcement that Obama would be visiting Israel in March… a first since visit since he was only a candidate for presidency? We suspect it is to push for a peace treaty and Palestinian state! In any case, we have the enemies of Israel’s military might playing out before our very eyes. There are various indications that the tension between Israel and her Muslim neighbours are close to breaking-point. Iran’s president and religious leaders have made renewed calls for the complete annihilation of Israel. Their nuclear programme has been accelerated and they have armed Hezbollah in Lebanon to the teeth.
We have the withdrawing of the United States from the world scene, a weakened yet dangerous Syria, and Russian army personnel in the Middle East ready for war. It only takes a spark to get it all going! The next weeks are very important to see how the region will spend the next few months. It could be very eventful… as the Middle East is lining up to prophecy!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,

Did the story of Noah really happen?
By Christopher Snyder
Published March 28, 2014
The story of Noah’s flood in the Bible’s Old Testament has been popular for centuries, but the opening of the big-budget Hollywood film “Noah” has reignited fascination. Religious scholars and pundits are asking, did the flood actually happen?
In an interview with Fox News’ Lauren Green, author Larry Stone gave his take on the biblical story. Stone is the author of “Noah, The Real Story,” an account of both the flood and search for Noah’s ark centuries later.
There are over 300 different ancient accounts of flood stories. Stone explained how these reports come from all over the globe.
“Floods do happen all over the world and some say that’s why there are so many flood stories,” Stone said. “But the other alternative is that all these flood stories all over the world are a collective memory of one great, worldwide flood.”
He points out that up until the early 20th century, geologists believed floods of any size couldn’t have tremendous devastation on a global scale. “Yet a geologist found evidence out in the Western United States in the Northwest … that yes, the floods can affect the world,” Stone said.
Stone said there are three scenarios that could explain the flood told in Noah’s story: a “freak flood” on the Euphrates River in Ancient Samaria, Mediterranean Sea floods into the Black Sea, or a substantial flood that covered the world.
Each possibility, Stone says, can relate to actual geological or climate patterns noted in our world’s history.
Watch the full interview above for Larry Stone’s explanation of the three scenarios.
Democrats belong to Party of Satan
By Shoebat Foundation on July 10, 2013 in Blog, General
If you’re a Democrat, you belong to the Party of Satan (not an endorsement of the Republican Party). Over the last couple of weeks, the Texas State Capitol has become ground zero in an extremely spirited debate about whether it should be legal to sacrifice babies on the devil’s altar. As time was running out on the first special legislative session of the Texas legislature on June 25th, state senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) was filibustering a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. President Barack Obama tweeted his support for Davis during her filibuster.

How an Atheist Might Be Behind You Not Seeing It
Billy Hallowell Science, Social Science, & Humanities
For those who don’t know, there’s a fascinating story surrounding Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin’s “secretive” activities in space. The second man to walk on the moon, Aldrin is also the first — and only known — individual to take Holy Communion. The act, which has gained scattered coverage in the past, was both a coveted and a controversial one.
Just before Aldrin stepped foot on the moon, he took the Eucharist, using wafers and a bottle of wine he brought into space from the Webster Presbyterian Church in Webster, Texas. Over the past decades since the 1969 moon landing, he has openly discussed the fascinating experience in detail.
“I poured the wine into the chalice our church had given me. In the one-sixth gravity of the moon the wine curled slowly and gracefully up the side of the cup,” Aldrin told Guideposts Magazine in 1970. “It was interesting to think that the very first liquid ever poured on the moon, and the first food eaten there, were communion elements.”
But this intriguing display, according to the Daily Mail, was purportedly kept secret by the U.S. government, despite plans that the astronaut originally had to broadcast the Christian act on radio.
See a dramatized version of his communion in the 1998 HBO miniseries, “From the Earth to the Moon,” below:
NASA apparently decided not to allow Aldrin to showcase the sacrament, as Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the now-deceased founder of American Atheists, threatened to sue the U.S. government over a previous religious broadcast that apparently unfolded on Apollo 8, a separate vessel (Aldrin was on Apollo 11 for his moon mission).
According to PBS, “She tried to prevent the reading of Genesis 8 on the Apollo space mission, arguing that the astronauts were government employees and thus prohibited from reading the Bible. (The Supreme Court declined jurisdiction.).” So the government was, thus, allegedly hesitant to allow Aldrin to broadcast the communion for fear that it would, again, rile O’Hair.
The Guardian adds more about the famed atheist’s opposition to NASA personnel exhibiting overt faith on the job:
After the Apollo 8 crew had read out the Genesis creation account in orbit, O’Hair wanted a ban on Nasa astronauts practising religion on earth, in space or “around and about the moon” while on duty. She believed it violated the constitutional separation between church and state.
Did You Know: Buzz Aldrin Took Holy Communion on the Moon But an Atheist Activist Allegedly Thwarted a Live Broadcast of the Sacrament
Astronaut Buzz Aldrin displays a copy of his new book as he speaks at the launch of the PayPal Galactic initiative at the SETI institute in Mountain View, Calif., Thursday, June 27, 2013. The program aims to bring together leaders in the space industry working on the issues around the commercialization of space, including what currency will be used, how banking systems will adapt, managing risk and fraud, and customer support.Credit: AP
While Americans didn’t hear the communion live as Aldrin had originally hoped, those at the Houston Space Center Mission Control were invited to join him in giving thanks as he read a section from the Book of John.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me,” the astronaut read from a written card (John 15:5).
Despite this great fanfare, Aldrin later wondered if Christian communion was the right move after all. While he said that it was incredibly fulfilling, in his memoir, “Magnificent Desolation,” he seemed to admit that it was, in a sense, divisive.
“Perhaps if I had it to do over again, I would not choose to celebrate communion,” he wrote. “Although it was a deeply meaningful experience for me, it was a Christian sacrament, and we had come to the moon in the name of all mankind–be they Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, agnostics, or atheists.”
