Ancient Hebrew Curse Reveals True Name of God
For Scott Stripling, one archaeologist’s trash has become his treasure.
Through a process called wet sifting—a methodological revolution bringing to light small or hidden artifacts that were previously missed at many archaeological digs—Stripling and his team have made an incredible discovery on Mount Ebal in the mountains of Samaria that could very well be one of the most significant finds in biblical history.
Stripling, the Director of Excavations for the Associates for Biblical Research, and his team traveled to Mount Ebal, about 50 miles north of Jerusalem, for a dig at the altar described in Joshua 8:30: “Then Joshua built an altar to the Lord God of Israel on Mount Ebal, as Moses commanded the children of Israel.”
The Mystery of Apostasy With Jonathan Cahn
The church in the West is undergoing a deep and intense transformation that has been taking place quietly for decades, but is now accelerating in ways never seen before.
It is an age of apostasy within the church, as the Bible prophesied, and there is fundamental change occurring within multiple denominations across the globe that is pulling the teachings of these churches away from God and into the ways of the world.
New York Times best-selling author Rabbi Jonathan Cahn recently exposed the realm of change that is not good, that is not godly, as written about in Proverbs 24:21 which says:
Shawn Bolz Prophesies: ‘I Saw the Winds of Change Blowing Again’
Change is uncomfortable, but it is an inevitable part of life. As believers, we are called to navigate the various seasons of change and transition with faith and trust in God’s guidance. The Bible is filled with stories and teachings that reveal the transformative power of God and the impact of embracing the changes He brings to our lives.
There is a season of change that God has been cocooning you for and you are about to find yourself coming out of this cocoon.
The Scriptures remind us that life is a dynamic journey, and change is an essential aspect of our growth and development. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 tells us that there is a time for everything under heaven, emphasizing the importance of embracing the various seasons of life. Whether it is a time to plant or a time to uproot, a time to mourn or a time to dance, God is actively involved in orchestrating these shifts and working through each phase to fulfill His divine purpose.
Paul Simon Shares Prophetic Dream of a Modern-Day Psalmist
The Lord certainly works in mysterious ways, and it is an incredible sight to behold when a seed planted decades ago in preparation for a spiritual encounter begins to take root and blossom.
Singer and American music icon Paul Simon is on such a journey of belief and discovery about the prophetic dream he was given in 2019 that has culminated in his newest album, “7 Psalms.”
“On Jan. 15, 2019, I had a dream that said, ‘You’re working on a piece called 7 Psalms.’” The dream was so strong that I got up and I wrote it down, but I had no idea what that meant,” shares Simon in the trailer for his upcoming release, “7 Psalms.”
Marcus Rogers: The Holy Spirit Instructed Me to Expose Christian ‘Witches’
In his online preaching, Marcus Rogers doesn’t hold anything back. If it doesn’t come from the truth of God’s Word, he won’t even touch the subject.
But, Rogers said in a recent video, that is hardly the case with many preachers and teachers out there, whether they are on the internet or behind the pulpit of a church. The senior pastor at Firehouse Church in Chicago, Rogers says there are multitudes of supposed distributors of God’s Word who are actually teaching and preaching witchcraft—and that they are “wolves in sheep’s clothing.
“I’ve been praying about this and I see a lot of things going on in Christianity right now,” Rogers says. “l just felt led by the Holy Spirit to come out here and expose these Christian witches, warlocks and wolves. A lot of people think I’m controversial, but I just have got to do what God has instructed me to do.
