God tells us in II Thessalonians chapter two that he is sending a "GREAT DELUSION, that they shall believe a lie." The delusion is concerning the Antichrist. Will YOU be among the deceived? Most people that have heard about the soon coming Antichrist have only heard what some preacher or writer thinks he will be like and it is all misinformation. Thus the vast majority of Christendom has a completely wrong picture of the Antichrist. The Bible clearly describes this coming world leader. No one should be deceived, but they will be and God will help with the deception by sending a delusion. Today the Muslims are feverishly working toward bringing back their Messiah. They are religiously trying to set the stage for the glorious end. It is no secret that all that is going on is for this reason. And Muslims are not alone. Jewish rabbis are calling their people home to Israel because they are excited that the Messiah's coming is eminent. Some internationally known Rabbis have personally had a supernatural visitation indicating that their Messiah is soon to come. And Christians all over the world are looking with great interest into end time events because they all know that the end is upon us. The stage has been set. The three major religions of the world are all posed for HIM. And when he comes it will not be Jesus, but the Antichrist posing as Christ and he will be so convincing that, (Matthew 24:24) "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Few people really know from the Bible how to identify the Antichrist. The delusion is upon us. Don't be caught unaware. Know the truth. Know him for the impostor that he is. Read Who Is the Antichrist? and know the truth.

Renowned social commentator and best-selling author James Howard Kunstler's sequel to World Made by Hand, expands on his vision of post-oil society in America in this "suspenseful, darkly amusing story with touches of the fantastic in the mode of Washington Irving" (Booklist).In the tiny hamlet of Union Grove, New York, the electricity has flickered off, the Internet is a distant memory, and the government is little more than a rumor. Travel is horse-drawn and farming is back at the center of life, but Union Grove is no pastoral haven. Wars are fought over dwindling resources and illness is a constant presence. Bandits roam the countryside, preying on the weak and a sinister cult threatens to shatter the town's fragile stability. In a novel that is both shocking yet eerily convincing, Kunstler seamlessly weaves hot-button issues such as the decline of oil and the perils of climate change into a compelling narrative of violence, religious hysteria, innocence lost, and love found.
"And behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom." (Daniel 7:13-14 ESV). Perceiving a hole in evangelical biblical theology that should be filled with a robust treatment of the book of Daniel, James Hamilton takes this chance to delve into the book's rich contribution to the Bible's unfolding redemptive-historical storyline. By setting Daniel in the broader context of biblical theology, this canonical study helps move us toward a clearer understanding of how we should live today in response to its message. First, Hamilton shows how the book's literary structure contributes to its meaning, and then addresses key questions and issues, concluding by examining typological patterns. This New Studies in Biblical Theology volume argues that the four kingdoms prophesied by Daniel are both historical and symbolic--that the "one like a son of man" seen by Daniel is identified with and distinguished from the Ancient of Days in a way that would be mysterious until Jesus came as both the son of David and God incarnate. He elaborates that the interpretations of Daniel in early Jewish literature attest to strategies similar to those employed by New Testament authors and exposes that those authors provide a Spirit-inspired interpretation of Daniel that was learned from Jesus. He also highlights how the book of Revelation uses Daniel's language, imitates his structure, points to the fulfillment of his prophecies and clarifies the meaning of his "seventieth week." Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
It is 1967. In separate wings of a Viennese hospital, two men lie bedridden. The narrator, named Thomas Bernhard, is stricken with a lung ailment; his friend Paul, nephew of the celebrated philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, is suffering from one of his periodic bouts of madness. As their once-casual friendship quickens, these two eccentric men begin to discover in each other a possible antidote to their feelings of hopelessness and mortality--a spiritual symmetry forged by their shared passion for music, strange sense of humor, disgust for bourgeois Vienna, and great fear in the face of death. Part memoir, part fiction, Wittgenstein's Nephew is both a meditation on the artist's struggle to maintain a solid foothold in a world gone incomprehensibly askew, and a stunning--if not haunting--eulogy to a real-life friendship.
Updated and Expanded Edition of a
Landmark Text on an Urgent Topic
Now updated and expanded, this landmark text reveals God's purposes for his covenant people in these times--and how this revelation is impacting the church. Unlike Ruth in the Old Testament, many of us have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah, and we share the collective guilt for centuries of their persecution. These pages remind us that now, more than ever, we must confess, embrace, and intercede for the chosen people of God, aligning our prayers with God's plan.
Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenant pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the church will never be the same
