    • Find us on the Internet - www.prophecyinthenews.com Hamas: Trashing the Roadmap to Peace By Gary Stearman A chain of events in Israel is now playing out in rapid order. The Hamas party has defeated Yasser Arafat’s old Fatah party. This new leadership is utterly devoted to violence. In fact, as we shall see, that is the very meaning of its name. The “Roadmap to Peace” is suddenly littered with potholes, boulders and collapsed bridges. The “Peace Process” is dead. How did this happen? The dominos be- gan to fall on January 5, 2006. On that date, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Israel’s most charismatic and effective leader, suffered a stroke.

    • Find us on the Internet - www.prophecyinthenews.com The Gospel of John – Chapter 20: The Resurrection of Christ By J. R. Church Our Savior’s resurrection is inexorably connected to His crucifixion. Together, they constitute the central doctrine of the New Testament, without which, there could be no hope of eternal life. While the death of Jesus paid the price on Adam’s sin, His res- urrection completed the process. By rising again, the Savior dem- onstrated the availability for reconciliation and the subsequent regeneration of the soul. Our message of hope lies in the fact that Jesus rose from the dead. The Apostle Paul challenged those who could not bring themselves to believe in the underlying concept of resurrection: “Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?” (I Cor. 15:12). He went on to explain that if there was no such thing as a resurrection, then, there would be no such thing as heaven — it would all be a concocted fairy tale: “… if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. “And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. we can be resurrected someday with a new “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and “Then they also which are fallen asleep and glorious nature.

The Twelfth Imam - The president of Iran said recently that he expects the Twelfth Imam (the Islamic messiah) to appear within the next two years. Though the Koran is silent on the subject, Muslim prophets began to predict such things as early as the twelfth century. 2. Seven Sayings of the Suffering Savior - From John 19 and the other Gospels, we learned that our Savior spoke seven times during crucifixion, and each statement was a prophecy about the history of the world. 3. Chaos in the Middle East - The terrorist group, Hamas, won a majority of seats in the Palestinian parliament. Israeli Foreign Minister Sylvan Shalom said that their landslide victory set the peace process back 50 years. What will happen now? Is the Roadmap to Peace still on? Will Hamas step up their war with Israel? 4. Avi Lipkin on Israeli Politics - The government of Israel is reeling from the latest Hamas victory at the polls. Avi Lipkin says that the political insanity of the Palestinians will bring a semblance of sanity to the Israeli government.

Even if it’s only the heaven of their imagination, they are drawn to some hope of a future paradise. Secular man wants a heaven on earth. That which has always been thought of as “up,” he would bring “down” to earth. As we shall see, they are not thinking of direction, but dimension. Science continues to probe the state of Creation. Driven by an inner fury to discover and decode the state of the universe, mathema- ticians and physicists spend billions as they labor to lay open the uni- verse like a ripened fruit, to be devoured by their lust to achieve the power of God, Himself. In one sense, they are constantly improv- ing our basic state of existence, as their inventions, electronics, pharmaceuticals, synthetics and genetics bring man closer to a sort of physical “paradise.” They strive for utopia. But in another sense, they are pursuing the knowledge forbidden to man after his great downfall. “And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:15-17).

It has been documented as true, and of a high degree of strangeness. It concerns a physician, a certain Duncan MacDougall, M.D. of Haverhill, Massachusetts. It seems that he became obsessed with the question of the substantiality of the human soul. In 1907, he performed several experiments of such a bizarre nature that they would never be allowed under today’s medical proto- cols. He tried to weigh the human soul! In retrospect, he was in search of the mystery of life. As we shall see, he was asking the wrong question. Before we review his research, it would be well to set the stage by remembering what the world was like during his era, almost a hundred years ago. In the era of spiritualism, theosophy (an earlier manifestation of the New Age move- ment) had become quite the rage in Europe and America. It raised many philosophical This artist depiction of a human soul reminds us that, though we all have a soul, questions about the spiritual nature of man. it remains aloof from perception.

Historians have long thought that the title, “Pillars of Hercules,” was a legendary name for the Strait of Gibraltar. Plato said that the size of the island was “greater than” Libya and Asia. He said that Atlantis had a huge land mass of about 800,000 square miles. An island that big could only have existed in a large ocean. Therefore, historians were Santorini: Thera’s location before it was convinced that it could only have been destroyed by the island’s volcano. located in the Atlantic Ocean.

    • Find us on the Internet - www.prophecyinthenews.com The Hebrew Alphabet: Introducing the Letter m Tzaddi By J. R. Church The m tzaddi is the eighteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, with a numerical value of 90. It has the appearance of a man on his knees, with his hands raised in praise to God. It is the symbol of righteousness and humility. It is often pronounced tzad- dik, as if the next letter e koph, should be a part of it. Together, the two letters refer to a righteous man. There are two forms for the tzaddi — the bent form m symbolizes the humility of the righteous in this life. It is used when the letter appears at the beginning or within a word. The straight . tzaddi represents the exaltation of the righteous in the world to come. At that time, the righteous will stand before God.

    • Find us on the Internet - www.prophecyinthenews.com Reflections: The Joy of Raising a PK By J. R. Church Preacher’s kids are affectionately known as PKs. In fact, Linda and I have two PKs — a daughter, Terri Jeanne, and a son, Jerry. They are both wonderful people. Terri Jeanne McInnis and son, Matthew, live in Denison, Texas. Jerry lives in Oklahoma City with his wife, Robin, and four children, Brittany, Sarah, Jordan, and Molly. This month, I want to tell you about Terri Jeanne. Next month, I will tell you about Jerry. Our PKs were a great joy for Linda and me. Someone once said that PKs act the way they do, because they run around with the deacon’s kids! Well, Terri Jeanne was a delight for us. She came into our lives on September 3, 1959, as I was entering my third year of college. I knew nothing about the care and feeding of babies, but Linda was well experienced. She was a fabulous baby sitter as a teenager, and much in demand. Not only would she take care of children, but she would also clean house, cook and wash dishes for her clients. Linda came from a family of five kids, and knew how to take care of little ones. Her mother taught her well! We named our daughter, Terri, after my twin brother, Terry. And we gave her a mid- dle name of Jeanne, after my older brother, Bobby Gene. Of course, we changed the spelling for a more feminine appearance. I paced the halls of the hospital for hours that September evening. About 1:30 A.M., a couple of nurses brought this tiny little bundle out of the operating room, and an- nounced that Linda and I had a beautiful second year, Terri spent about 8 hours a day her out of the service.

The Twelfth Imam - The president of Iran said recently that he expects the Twelfth Imam (the Islamic messiah) to appear within the next two years. Though the Koran is silent on the subject, Muslim prophets began to predict such things as early as the twelfth century. 2.

Chaos in the Middle East - The terrorist group, Hamas, won a majority of seats in the Palestinian parliament. Israeli Foreign Minister Sylvan Shalom said that their landslide victory set the peace process back 50 years. What will happen now? Is the Roadmap to Peace still on? Will Hamas step up their war with Israel? 4. Avi Lipkin on Israeli Politics - The government of Israel is reeling from the latest Hamas victory at the polls.
