Matrimonial Makeovers

Matrimonial Makeovers By Wendy Wippel One verse that has stumped me since pretty much the first week I belonged to Jesus is I John 3:2. “We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” I’ve been working on what that methodology would look like […]

Ezekiel Countdown

by admin

Ezekiel Countdown By Wendy Wippel The Book of Ezekiel, though considered one of the most difficult (and therefore least-read) books in the Old Testament) is really an amazing book, providing (albeit sometimes in fairly confusing imagery) a pretty straightforward timeline of Biblical prophecy starting with the nation’s being taken to Babylon in chains and ending […]

A Today Without a Yesterday

A Today Without a Yesterday By Wendy Wippel The Greek philosopher Aristotle, who lived about 400 years before Christ, wrote a book entitled, Physics which popularized his theory that the universe was eternal.

Happy New Year?

Happy New Year? By Wendy Wippel I hope one and all had a blessed remembrance of our Lord’s birth and found exactly what they wanted under their respective trees. But does anybody else get the feeling, from our daily headlines, that those of us waiting for the Lord’s return and according to a boat load […]

The First Noel

by admin

The First Noel By Wendy Wippel Somewhere amid the European Christmas tradition we inherited as Americans and the stuff we invented ourselves (flying reindeer? Snow, holly, and mistletoe?  The Grinch?  Wenceslas and Wassail?  Santa Claus?) we have lost any appreciation for the utter Jewishness of the events we celebrate. That it was Jewish prophecies being […]

One Fat and Sassy Church

One Fat and Sassy Church By Wendy Wippel Believers see the UN’s Agenda 2030 as a blueprint for one-world government ratified September 25, 2015 as a harbinger of the seven-year period called the Tribulation. Doubters point to the persistence of deep divisions in world views, most significantly with respect to religion. No argument there. But […]

Alas, Aleppo

Alas, Aleppo Wednesday, December 14, 2016 By Wendy Wippel I have been trying to follow the Battle for Aleppo, I really have. But the sound-bite news coverage that both TV and online have reverted to (even on Fox News you hear way more about Brad and Angie then you do Al-Bashir) makes it hard, and […]

Eternity 2.0 In Defense of the Faith Wednesday, December 07, 2016 By Wendy Wippel Aubrey de Grey, gerontology researcher at the University of Cambridge (England), is famous for asserting (confidently) that the next few decades will see huge increases in human lifespans. His exact words, in fact, were, “the first person to live to be […]

In the Beginning, God…

by admin

In the Beginning, God… Witnessing Tools Wednesday, November 30, 2016 By Wendy Wippel We all know how the Bible starts, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”. Just ten little words (well, 8 in Hebrew). Ten words followed by about 7000 years of contention. But let’s be honest. The controversy surrounding these […]

A Sheep of a Different Color

by admin

A Sheep of a Different Color In Defense of the Faith Wednesday, November 23, 2016 By Wendy Wippel No Sheep Shows after the Thanksgiving Day parade, so you’ve probably never seen a Piebald Sheep, an unusual animal considered an ‘heirloom’ breed in the US because commercial breeding has overlooked them. Meaning they are still pretty […]

England Swings

by admin

England Swings By Wendy Wippel London was a settled by the time of Christ’s birth. Geoffrey of Monmouth, author of “The History of the Kings of Britain” (1136) traces its beginning back to Brutus (great grandson of Aeneas,the Trojan), who called the new settlement Trinivatum. It would prove to play a huge part in the […]

Like a Flood

by admin

Like a Flood By Wendy Wippel Many believers don’t seem to know that the Bible actually contains a succinct, comprehensive and straightforward summary of the tribulation. It’s in the Old Testament, namely, the book of Daniel, Chapter 9, and lays out Israel’s future first through the rejection of the Messiah , and the destruction of […]
