Bipartisan support for new Iran sanctions growing, despite Obama’s feverish effort to block them & isolate Netanyahu.

(Naples, Florida) — President Obama made three key points regarding the Iranian nuclear threat in his State of the Union address.

First, the President believes his policies are working to prevent Iran from advancing its highly-dangerous nuclear program. “Our diplomacy is at work with respect to Iran, where, for the first time in a decade, we’ve halted the progress of its nuclear program and reduced its stockpile of nuclear material,” the President declared.

Second, the President believes that a truly good and effective diplomatic deal with Iran is not only possible but within reach. “Between now and this spring, we have a chance to negotiate a comprehensive agreement that prevents a nuclear-armed Iran, secures America and our allies — including Israel, while avoiding yet another Middle East conflict,” he told the Joint Session of Congress and the nation.

Third, the President vehemently opposes any effort by Congress to impose new economic…

Him who made heaven and earth.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“Contrary to the popular notion that only creationism relies on the supernatural, evolutionism must as well, since the probabilities of random formation of life are so tiny as to require a ‘miracle’ for spontaneous generation tantamount to a theological argument.” Chandra Wickramasinghe 

Revelation 14:7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.

(Naples, Florida) — Iran’s radical Shia leaders are moving closer and closer to building nuclear weapons and the long-range missiles to hit the U.S., Europe, Israel and our Arab allies.Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists just this week attacked, killed and wounded Israelis on the Lebanon border.

Meanwhile, the ISIS threat is growing. They have doubled their territory in Syria, are threatening to behead a Jordanian pilot and a Japanese man, and in a newly released video, ISIS threatens to “reach America” and behead President Obama in the White House. (Please for these hostages to be released quickly and safely. Pray, too, for Jordanian and Japanese leaders to know how best to resolve the situation.)

What’s more, a new Fox News poll finds that 84% of Americans fear ISIS will soon launch terrorist attacks inside the United States. This is an increase of 10 points from a

Sodom and neighboors.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“They desire them to consider how great the wickedness was that was committed, and that it was done among them: and how necessary it was therefore that they should either punish the malefactors with death themselves, according to the law of Moses, or deliver them up to the general assembly, to be so much the more publicly and solemnly punished, that evil might be put away from Israel, the national guilt removed, the infection stopped by cutting off the gangrened part, and national judgments prevented; for the sin was so very like that of the Sodomites that they might justly fear, if they did not punish it, God would rain hail from heaven upon them, as he did, not only upon Sodom, but the neighboring cities.” Matthew Henry

Pray for wisdom.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

How it pleased God that Solomon asked for wisdom and knowledge. Wisdom helps us think right, do right, and speak right. You too can please God if you ask Him for wisdom to reach the lost. Glean it from the Bible and pray that God gives you the wisdom to make good use of your time, to make right decisions, and to say the right things to those who are sitting in the shadow of death. See James 1:5–8 for the conditions needed to receive anything from the Lord.

2 Chronicles 1:7 On that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, Ask! What shall I give you?8 And Solomon said to God: You have shown great mercy to David my father, and have made me king in his place.9 Now, O Lord God, let Your promise to David my father be established, for You have made…

With U.S.-Israeli relations heading for a train wreck & threat of Radical Islam rising, what’s next? Where do we go from here? Video of my interview with Greg Laurie.

Pastor Greg Laurie and I discuss the future of America, Israel and the threat of Radical Islam. Pastor Greg Laurie and I discuss the future of America, Israel and the threat of Radical Islam.

(Riverside, California) — It pains me to say it but I believe it is true. U.S.-Israeli relations are heading for a train wreck.

At one end of Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., the leaders of Congress have invited the Prime Minister of Israel to address a Joint Session of Congress, and the American people, in early March. These leaders want to hear from the Prime Minister on how we can best work together to protect ourselves from the growing and grave threat of Radical Islam, from crushing ISIS to decisively acting to prevent the mullahs in Iran from building nuclear weapons.

At the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, the President of the United States flat out refuses even to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister.

The Scriptures indicate that eventually every nation will abandon…

Continually benevolent.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

Be continually benevolent. Look at what Jesus said on the subject in Matt. 5:42 and Acts 20:35. The way to an unbeliever’s heart is often through his mouth. The gift of a hamburger many speak much louder of your love than a powerful sermon in a deaf ear.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days.

“How many decisions for Christ?”

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

There is always a temptation to track numbers when it comes to evangelism. It is wise not to do so, because only God knows those who are truly repentant. It is amazing how many evangelists and preachers seem to have access to the Book of Life by citing salvation statistics, but such numbering reveals a lack of understanding of the nature of true and false conversion. Making a “decision,” walking an aisle, or raising a hand do not indicate whether someone truly repents and trusts in the Savior. The fact that we have planted the good seed of the Word of God is evangelistic “success.” The rest is up to God.

Regarding keeping tabs of “decisions for Christ,” D. L. Moody stated: “‘Is it well to number converts?’ [David] got into trouble by trying to number Israel. It is best to let the Lord keep the record. It makes me…

Con-science.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

Human understanding is “darkened” (Eph. 4:18), but the conscience is the area where God has given light to every man. The word “con-science” means “with knowledge.” The conscience is the headline warning of sin; the Scriptures give the fine print. None of us can say that we don’t know it’s wrong to lie, steal, murder, or commit adultery; that knowledge is written in large print on our heart. However, in the Scriptures we see the true nature of sin: that God requires truth even in the inward parts (see Psalm 51:6). The fine print reveals that lust is adultery of the heart, hatred is murder of the heart, fibs are bearing false witness, etc.

“Conscience is the internal perception of God’s moral Law.” Oswald Chambers

Romans 2:15 … who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing…

When a nation murders 57 million babies & ignores gathering storm of Radical Islam, the state of the union is not “strong.” America is in grave danger, and Christian leaders must speak out.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

state-of-the-union(Costa Mesa, California) — “America, for all that we have endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this: The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong.”

So began President Obama on Tuesday night in his 2015 State of the Union address to the nation and to a Joint Session of Congress.

He was not the first American President to declare the state of the union “strong.” But with all due respect, the President is wrong.

When a nation murders 57 million innocent babies, the state of the union is not strong.

When a nation overtaxes and overregulates and over burdens the economy and drives manufacturers and other businesses overseas and leaves 92 million Americans out of the labor forcewith no jobs and few prospects to get a good-paying job, the state of the union is not…
