101 Post Exilic History

It is important to refresh ourselves regarding the history of the Post Exilic period and the conditions leading up to and during the life of Christ.  Very many people are still ignorant of this history; and of the fact that the Mosaic Pharisees were NOT the same as the modern Rabbins!  The modern Rabbins do not and […]

Matthew 27 – 28

Matthew 27 The chief priests and elders sent Jesus bound to the Roman governor Notice that it was the established Church of God of that day that rejected Christ; just like it is today’s corporate Ekklesia which rejects any zeal to keep God’s Word.

The US, Latin America and Europe

With few exceptions the nations of Latin America began with Spanish and Portuguese explorers and Conquistadors establishing colonies, and Catholic missionaries bringing their religion to the continent.   The American Monroe Doctrine of December 2, 1823 declared Latin America to be an American sphere of influence.  Since that time the United States has dominated Latin America […]
