Christian Living

The Coming War on True Christianity

There is emerging on the world scene something that will become one of the greatest threats ever raised against the authentic (born-again) body of Christ—Religious Christians.

In January 2014, the Pew Research Center (PRC)—a prestigious think tank based in Washington, DC (which provides information on social issues and demographic trends shaping the world)—published Religious Hostilities Reach Six-Year High.

In this important report, the worldwide public-opinion surveyors chronicled the steady growth of religious persecution around the world and found that social hostilities involving religion are currently most frequently directed against people of Christian faith. The sharpest increase was in the Middle East, which, the reporters surmise, is the result of the 2010–11 political uprisings known as the Arab Spring. That region’s score on the Social Hostilities Index rose from 5.4 in 2011 to 6.4 in 2012, three times the global median.

A January 8, 2014 Breitbart News feature with the headline “A Report from the Non-denominational Group Open Doors Says the Number of Christians Martyred Around the World for Their Faith Nearly Doubled in 2013” separately confirmed the discoveries of the PRC report.

Signs in the Heavens

The Hebrew “Mazzaroth” has nothing to do with astrology. Rather, it is a tool that uses the stars to tell a story.

In this article, we’re going to look at the Mazzaroth, the Hebrew name for the zodiac. Many scholars believe the word zodiac comes from the Greek zidiakòs kýklos meaning “a circle of little animals.” The Sanskrit root word sodi, though, means “the way” and reflects the Middle East understanding of the zodiac.

The Mazzaroth has nothing to do with astrology or any attempt to tell our futures based on the stars. Rather, the Mazzaroth is a tool that uses the stars to tell a story.

The Hebrews knew their constellations. They were not to worship the stars, but the first chapter of Genesis states that when God created the heavenly bodies, He did so for several reasons. He said, “…Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

Small Groups

Where We’ve Been and Where We’ll End

We believe that the best place for the discipleship process to take root is in the midst of a small group, not a large congregation.

The Church began in homes and will one day end in homes.

— Chuck Missler

I believe in the power of Small Groups! I believe that the best place for the discipleship process to take root is in the midst of a small group, not a large congregation. Now, before I jump into this topic let me first say that I am not a Church hater! I am not anti-Church! I am simply pro-Discipleship!

The Original Small Group

I do not believe it was a coincidence that when Rabbi Yeshua began His ministry He selected twelve, not twelve hundred, to be “with” Him.

As the years go by we have seen the numbers in Koinonia Institute gradually grow. We believe our Medallion programs are excellent, but we believe that it is time for us to find creative ways to build the koinonia of our Institute. Again we are reminded of our Lord’s command to go into all the world and make disciples!

Culture Wars

Exposing Darkness & Embracing Light

Let us commend the good while gently instructing those who might have gone astray so that we may encourage everyone to focus on the good news of Jesus Christ.

Twenty years ago, when Jesus’ name was used in a movie, it was usually used as a curse word. Last year, 67 percent of the movies released had at least some pro-Christian, pro-Biblical content. This year, in 2014, an incredible number of the major movies being released have positive, overt Biblical—and often evangelical—content.

As might be expected, many of these movies have attracted criticism. Sadly, some of the most spiteful, angry and mean-spirited criticism has come from Christians.

Against The Tide

Our New Spiritual Willpower

As Christians, we have God’s supernatural will and power. First He counsels us as to what His will is, then He gives us His supernatural power to perform His will in our lives.

To him who overcomes “I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

Revelation 3:21

Over and over again in Scripture we see the wonderful and yet terrible consequences of man’s free will, enabling him to either follow God or follow self. David tearfully humbles himself at the feet of God (Psalm 51), but Saul proudly plots to get his own way (1 Samuel 15). Joseph continually turns away from Potiphar’s wife (Genesis 39:7–9), but Samson rushes into the arms of Delilah (Judges 16).

At the exact moment John the Beloved is choosing to lay his head upon Jesus’ breast, Judas is choosing to betray Him (John 13:23–27). Mary of Bethany spends a year’s income to anoint Jesus with costly perfume (Mark 14:3–9), yet Ananias and Sapphira lie in order to withhold a small portion of their income (Acts 5:1–11). A poor widow gives her last few coins to the Lord (Luke 21:2–4), but the rich young ruler won’t let go of his great wealth (Luke 18:18–25). Parthian magistrates travel a great distance to worship the babe in a manger (Luke 2:1–2), but the Pharisees won’t walk six miles into Bethlehem to meet their Messiah!

The book of Revelation … mysterious? Some stay away from it because of all the “types” and “images” but most are fascinated. Jesus made it clear that we need to be awake; we need to watch and we need to not be deceived! Because of that command this book is a MUST!
