Wednesday, April 1, AD 33.
The following video, filmed in conjunction with our book The Final Days of Jesus, features short explanations from and interviews with historian of ancient history Paul Maier (of Western Michigan University) and New Testament professor Grant Osborne (of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), focusing on the behind-the-scenes motivations and actions of the Sanhedrin as they plot to put an end to Jesus once and for all.
Easter, Jesus’ Death on the Cross, and the Old Testament
Hebrews 8-10 tell us that the Old Testament sanctuary sacrificial system pictures and foreshadows Christ’s perfect sacrifice for us. Picture with me what Old Testament believers experience as they journey to and into the sanctuary of God—the temple of God—and how it points us to the cross.

World Net Daily is reporting that Vision Forum’s former president, Doug Phillips, has been named in a lawsuit by Lourdes Torres, a young woman who worked as a nanny for the Phillips’ family beginning at the age of 15. Torres has filed a lawsuit against her former employer, alleging that Phillips committed “inappropriate, unwanted, and immoral sexual acts” against her while she worked and lived in the Phillips’ home and tended to his children. The lawsuit was filed in Kendall County (Texas) Tuesday, April 15, 2014, and can be read here (Warning: Explicit content).
So far, I’ve reviewed the preface, chapter 1, chapter 3 (more chapter 3), the first part of chapter 5 as well as the second part of chapter 5, chapter 7 and chapter 9. Fred has review chapter 2, chapter 4, chapter 6, chapter 8 and chapter 10.
Also, this is the final installment on our review and response of Authentic Fire. The other appendixes contain content than have been responded to, at length, in other places.
Let’s get going…but first:
Cute little lamb who was betrayed by George “Giblets” Rodriquez at thanksgiving?
Our lamb is dead, betrayed by that turkey!
We’ll have to find a replacement.
There we go!
Okay. Now that our chopped lamb was replaced by Lambchop, we’re ready to speak the truth in love!

I am a father of three children who are fully part of the digital generation. They are as comfortable with iPods as I am with a paperback and have only ever known a world where almost all of us have cell phones with us at all times, where Facebook is a teenager’s rite-of-passage, where every home has five or ten or twenty devices that can access the rest of the world through the Internet. Yet I know of the dangers that are lurking out there, waiting to draw them in.
I want to protect my children in a world like this, but I want to do more than that. I want to disciple my children to live virtuously, to use these new technologies for good purposes instead of bad ones. I believe this is a crucial part of my calling as a parent. To address this great need, I have put together what I call The Porn-Free Family Plan. It is a plan designed to protect my children from online dangers so that I can train them to use their devices and technologies well.
SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWS LINKS AND VIDEOS: The Third Temple is coming! It will be built in the near future. Ezekiel had a vision of this coming temple and the role it will play in the End Times. What’s even more exciting is that the Israeli Institute will teach and prepare individuals of the priestly duties to perform in the temple. What truly exciting times we live in! Gods prophetic word is being manifested before our very eyes. This is one more step to that inevitable future. Thank you for visiting These Christian Times and God Bless You.

Lyndon and I finished up our main, chapter-by-chapter review of Dr. Michael Brown’s book, Authentic Fire, a response to the Strange Fire conference and John MacArthur’s book by the same name. The links to those reviews of the ten chapters can be located HERE.
There are four appendices included with Authentic Fire written by four guys supportive of Dr. Brown’s criticisms of the Strange Fire conference. When Lyndon and I discussed the chapter reviews, we focused upon interacting with Dr. Brown’s chapters and didn’t really discuss including a review of the each of the appendices.
Of the four appendices, the first one written by Craig Keener is the only one really begging for a review. Lyndon, thankfully, dove in and provided that here,
Lyndon, in my mind, totally lays to waste the idea that Keener is some sort of trustworthy…

Just a cautionary word about this popular film: it is NOT doctrine nor should it be viewed as such. It is NOT ‘bible teaching’ nor should it be viewed as such. It is NOT accurate at several points nor should it be viewed as such. It is simply, merely, and only ENTERTAINMENT.
Getting your Doctrine from Hollywood films is like getting your doctrine from – well – Hollywood films. If you really want to know what heaven is like, study Scripture. It at least has the benefit of being theologically correct.
In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French historian, came to America to study our nation. Europeans and others were fascinated by the success of the fledgling nation, then barely 50 years old and already competing on the world stage.
Conservative sage Dr. Ben Carson is claiming the White House was offended by his now-famous keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and asked at the time for an apology call to President Obama — which he didn’t make.
In this commentary, we provided evidence to show that Warren and Tony Blair were partnering together with the Roman Catholic Church in the formation of a P.E.A.C.E. Plan that leads towards the formation of a global religion in the name of Christ for the cause of peace. Documentation for this premise can be supported by numerous statements that both Warren and Blair have made publically from messages they have given or articles that have been written explaining their ideas.
While many who read that commentary doubted or denied such a Warren-Rome connection, a new YouTube interview with Rick Warren and Raymond Arroyo of EWTN (published and posted on Apr 11, 2014), reveals the statements we made about the Warren-Rome partnership were accurate prophetic warnings with regard to what would happen in the future.
The YouTube description of the interview with Warren and Arroyo states:
God uses death to give us life; despair brings hope; sickness gives way to health; misery shows us joy. God has placed us on the earth amongst that which is the exact opposite of what His love and goodness are, so that we can know by comparison His love for us.
Can we truly know light if we do not experience darkness? Can we really know true love if we do not know what hate is?
A few weeks ago I set out on a series of articles through which I am scanning the history of the church—from its earliest days all the way to the present time—to examine some of Christianity’s most notable false teachers. Along the way we have visited such figures as Arius, Joseph Smith, Ellen G. White and Norman Vincent Peale. Today we will look at a man who commands more followers than perhaps any other person in the world: Jorge Mario Bergoglio, known also as Pope Francis.
