His grace is sufficient.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

God will often speak to our hearts in the “wilderness.” There are times when we find ourselves in the heat of burning tribulation, and times when God comforts our hearts and His grace becomes sufficient for us.

Numbers 9:1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying:2 “Let the children of Israel keep the Passover at its appointed time.

Almost finished writing a new thriller about ISIS threat. Would be so grateful for your prayers. An update.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

jerusalem-siloutteQuick update:

  • My new novel is about a New York Times foreign correspondent who hears rumors that ISIS rebels — the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham — have captured a cache of chemical weapons Syria.
  • The reporter heads into the hellish environment of the Syrian civil war to track down and interview the commander of ISIS and get him to go on the record to confirm or deny the rumors.
  • This sets into motion a rapid-fire chain events that will take this correspondent on a highly-dangerous journey to Lebanon, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Iraq and the United States in pursuit of the story, at the risk of his life.
  • Key questions in the novel: Who will ISIS use the chemical weapons against if they really have them? The US? Israel? A third target?
  • As part of the research on the book, I’ve traveled several times to the Middle East, and met with several former senior CIA officials, Mossad…

“Is taking God’s name in vain really a sin?”

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“What if someone doesn’t believe ‘taking God’s name in vain’ is a sin?”

The lost may argue that they don’t consider casually saying “God” to be blasphemy. In fact, the phrase “omigod” is so embedded in the vocabulary of youth today that it is shortened to “OMG” for ease in text messaging. It is just a meaningless word to them. In other words, they don’t esteem the name of God. The Hebrew word used for “vain” means nothingness, emptiness, vanity. According to John F. Walvoord, to misuse God’s name means literally, “to lift it up to or attach it to emptiness.” The Third Commandment forbids using God’s name flippantly or in profanity. So using the Lord’s name lightly or without thinking is the very essence of taking it “in vain.

Another argument you may encounter is that the Seventh Commandment refers only to adultery, not fornication (sex before marriage). But…

The Presbyterian Church USA turns against Israel. But they have already rejected Christ & His Word, so is this surprising? A brief analysis.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

PCUSA-logo(Washington, D.C.) — The Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) General Assembly voted last week to divest from companies that operate in Israel.

I was deeply disappointed, but hardly surprised.

Let’s be clear: not all Presbyterians agree with this decision. There are orthodox evangelical Presbyterian churches, leaders, and individuals out there who truly love Christ, love His Word, and love both Israel and the Palestinians.

But PCUSA has completely lost its way. Many of its members are not only theologically liberal, they are engaged is full-blown apostasy. The majority PCUSA pastors and members, according to the denomination’s own data, completely deny the divinity of Jesus Christ. They completely reject the teachings of the Bible on numerous issues. Is it really surprising, then, that so many of its members do not have a Biblical understanding of how to love Israel and her Arab neighbors?

Let’s get back to the divestment issue in a moment. The apostasy issue is far more important…

Whitefield, Luther King, Penn…

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“Poor youth! He had a good mind to be a Christian, and to inherit eternal life, but thought it too dear, if it could be purchased at no less an expense than of his estate! And thus many, both young and old, now-a-days, come running to worship our blessed Lord in public, and kneel before him in private, and inquire at his gospel, what they must do to inherit eternal life: but when they find they must renounce the self-enjoyment of riches, and forsake all in affection to follow him, they cry, ‘The Lord pardon us in this thing! We pray thee, have us excused’ …He will not!” —George Whitefield 

“Christianity has always insisted that the cross we bear precedes the crown we wear.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

“No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown . . .” —

Pray for peace: Syrians kill 1 Israeli, wound 2 on Sunday. Palestinians in Gaza fires 20+ rockets at Israel. In turn, Israel strikes 9 targets in Syria, strikes targets in Gaza.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

????????????????????????(Washington, D.C.) — Please keep praying for peace in the Middle East. Violence is spreading and tensions are running high.

ISIS forces remain on the move in Syria and Iraq, capturing more territory, battling hard to overthrow the Assad regime in Damascus and hoping to get into position to bring down the Maliki government in Baghdad.

Syrian forces on Sunday killed an Israeli teenage boy and wounded two Israeli civilians in attacks against the Israeli side of the border.

In the south, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have fired at least 20 rockets at Israel since June 15th.

Earlier this month, Hamas terrorists kidnapped three Israeli teenage boys.

The Israeli Air Force has now retaliated in Syria and Gaza, and a massive manhunt continues for the three Israeliyouths.

Again, please keep praying and urging others to pray.

Here is the latest on the new Israeli air strikes in Syria:

“Saved from … “

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“When I ask someone if he is saved and he sarcastically says, ‘Saved from what?’ how should I respond?”

He almost has a right to be sarcastic (what Shakespeare called “the lowest form of wit”). As Christians, we should be careful when we use words like “saved,” because they make no sense to an unbeliever. We put up signs proclaiming “Jesus saves,” and wonder why the world asks which bank He saves at. I would never ask a person if he is saved. In addition, a false convert will say that he is saved, despite the fact that he is trusting in his own righteousness.

I find that the best way to witness is to begin in the natural realm, then ask what the person thinks happens after someone dies—“What’s on the other side?” If he thinks there is a heaven, ask if he is good enough to go there…

British PM warns ISIS planning to attack England. But pursues new ties with Radicals in Iran. Why?

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

British PM David Cameron warns ISIS wants to hit England. British PM David Cameron warns ISIS wants to hit England.

How serious is the ISIS threat? At least one Western leader is raising an alarm.

The crisis in Iraq must not be dismissed as ‘nothing to do with us’ as the same Islamic jihadists are also planning to attack the UK, David Cameron has warned,” reports the UK Guardian.

“The prime minister said the terrorist insurgence in Iraq, as well as related problems in Somalia, Nigeria and Mali, would ‘come back and hit us at home’ if the UK did not help stabilise these regimes.”

The Prime Minister is right to be concerned, and hopefully will enact policies to deal decisively with the threat of Radical Islam.

However, I’m deeply concerned that Cameron is seriously pursuing reestablishing diplomatic ties with Iran, including reopening the British embassy in Tehran.

This is a serious mistake.

  • Iran’s brutal regime is the epicenter of…
