Remnant Report – December 21, 2016

In a few days, Christians everywhere will celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour. Even non-Christians will acknowledge Him, (knowingly or not). Have a truly Merry Christmas, and remember to thank the Creator who came here to save us (1 Timothy 3:16 & 1 Timothy 2:5-6).

Feelings > Facts? Not to a Christian.

We hear a lot about feelings (“feels”) today. People are more concerned about how something makes them feel than with the facts. But Christians put their feelings aside, when evaluating any situation. We are concerned primarily with truth.

In John 8:32, Jesus says: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

To a Christian, their God is Truth. Literally! Not only does Jesus tell us the truth (John 16:7) and embody the Truth (John 14:6), God’s Word is Truth (John 17:17), and His Spirit is Truth (1 John 5:6).

Feelings take a back seat; the Truth is what we care about more than anything. Even when the facts might be unpleasant.

On the Berlin “Religion of Peace” Attack

The “Religion of Peace” (so-called) has struck again: this time in Berlin (on December 19th). The target? Ostensibly German Christians, doing some shopping. The major news media, of course, doesn’t honestly report on the events. More at the links:

The Truth About the Berlin Christmas Market Attack

“There is no problem with refugees,” says Angela Merkel. The “Terror Attack Map” of Germany shows differently.

Is Islam really a religion of peace, as so many in the government and media have claimed? Let’s see: numerous unprovoked attacks aimed at Christians, perpetrated by worshippers of a god who is not known for peace. (The 2016 Timeline of Islamic Terror clearly shows this.) Compare and contrast with the Christian God who we worship – Jesus Christ – known as the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).

Real Giants?

When people question whether or not real, actual, literal giants walked the earth, all I can ask is: do you believe the Bible?

Not everyone does believe the Bible, of course. Many people have doubts about the plain words of the scripture. But the Bible is (and will be) proven correct – even concerning the existence of giants.

To put this find in perspective, 3m-5m in height is in the range of 10-16 feet – well within “Goliath” range. This is just one of many instances where actual bones have been discovered. Giants, evidently, were more common than modern man can imagine.

A Nation of Sorcery?

When you consider just how widespread drug use is in America, it makes the pharmakeia (sorcery) mentioned in Revelation 18:23 and other places much more relevant to modern times.

The City on Seven Mountains

Often, Revelation 17:9 (“the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth”) is cited as a reference to Rome. Critics and apologists for Roman Catholicism have said that Rome sits on seven hills, so the verse is not a reference to Rome. It is true that in modern times, Rome is known as the “city on seven hills” – not mountains. And it is also true that many other cities can be claimed to rest upon seven hills.

But Rome is most likely the city referred to in Revelation. I have (at least) four reasons:

  1. Rome is the only major international city of any significance that rests on seven hills or mountains
  2. The Greek word “oros” used in this verse is variously translated in English as “mountain” OR “hill”
  3. Rome is and was referred to as resting on seven MOUNTAINS as well as HILLS. The terms are used interchangeably, especially in Latin. (See “Septem montes Romae” or Septimontium.)
  4. No other religious power of any worldwide significance is based in an area that rests upon seven hills or mountains.

Facebook Says They’re Solving Fake News, and You Should Just Trust Them!

Be aware: their “fact-checking” team is comprised of total and outright leftists. This is one reason I refer to them as “Fakebook”.

Anarchy Sharia in the UK

The England of Dickens is gone. The England of Churchill is gone. The England of the Beatles is gone. Even the England of Mr. Bean is no more. England, as it historically was, is gone. Instead, Islamists march in the streets demanding sharia.

Do you follow the WORD or the WORLD?

A final thought, from Let Us Reason: “Jesus said we are sanctified by the word, without it we join the world and get conformed to its ways, trapped and useless.”
