Father Who Lost Son Is Giving His Book Free to Other Grieving Families

September 01, 2016

When his son Isaac died of meningitis type B at the age of 26, Neal Raisman      fell into a deep depression.  Raisman likened his loss of Isaac to having a foot ripped off. He could feel the raw pain and anger of the event.  And he lost his balance for a very long time. It is simply not easy to balance on one foot.   Just try it. You may have seconds of steadiness and control but then, imperceptibly something happens to disrupt your equilibrium. You begin to fall and have to put the other foot down. Try to imagine what it is like to not have the other foot.  You can’t put it down and well, you fall.  He struggled through the days and with questions such as “How can a gracious God do this?”, “Where is he now?” and the big one, “Why?”  Answers did not come easily. Nor did relief from the seemingly endless pain and anger at losing his son,...

Significance of Pope’s UN Visit Seen in Bible’s ‘Rosetta Stone’--Revelation

September 02, 2016

Like the Rosetta Stone with three languages that helped translate the hieroglyphics, the Bible’s book of Revelation has imagery that helps explain the beasts in the book of Daniel. Doing so also helps to understand why the pope calls the Bible a ‘dangerous book,’ because it identifies the papacy as a major player in end-time deception not seen in Daniel, says Dr. Richard Ruhling, author of The Alpha & Omega Bible Code, offering the following explanation. Historically, the Protestant reformers held that the ‘little horn’ growing out of the 4th beast that represented the Roman Empire in Daniel 7 was the papacy, based on verse 25, persecuting the saints, changing God’s laws (eliminating the commandment forbidding images and changing the day of worship from Sabbath to Sunday) and claiming the prerogatives of God, says Ruhling. Revelation’s 13th chapter updates the imagery of the ‘little...
