SOUTHERN BAPTIST PASTOR WINS AZUSA AWARD (Friday Church News Notes, January 19, 2018, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Southern Baptist pastor William Dwight McKissic, Sr., has been awarded the annual William Seymour Award for 2018. The award is named for the pastor of the so-called Azusa Street Revival of 1906 that is typically credited as the birth of Pentecostalism. The award is to be presented in April at the Azusafest celebration that will feature “a prophetic conference” with “Apostles” Ron and Tyda Harvey. If McKissic actually accepts this award, it will...

Christ's Bodily Resurrection
    “The tomb was empty; and the foes of Christ were unable to deny it” (Ernest Kevan, The Resurrection of Christ, 1961, p. 14).
    “I know pretty well what evidence is; and I tell you, such evidence as that for the resurrection has never been broken down yet” (Lord Lyndhurst or John Singleton Copley, Attorney General of Great Britain, Lord Chancellor of England, High Steward of the University of Cambridge, original source probably from Theodore Martin, A Life of Lord Lyndhurst).
    “Let it simply be said that we know more about the details of the hours immediately before and the actual death of Jesus, in and near Jerusalem, than we know about the death of any other one man in all the ancient world” (Wilbur Smith, Therefore Stand, p. 360).
    “Non-miraculous explanations of what happened at the empty tomb have to face a cruel choice: either they have to rewrite the evidence in order to suit themselves or they have to accept the fact that they are not consistent with the present evidence. The only hypothesis that fits the evidence is that Jesus was really resurrected. Could the Man who predicted His death and resurrection, only to have... Read More

The Antichrist as a Muslim?
    There is a small movement today that sees the Antichrist as a Muslim who will arise from the Muslim nations.
    The chief proponent and promoter of this view is Joel Richardson (b. 1971), author of Islamic Antichrist, Mideast Beast, and other books and video presentations.
    Richardson has extremely dangerous associates, including Glenn Beck, who holds to the false gospel of Mormonism and yet has promoted Richardson’s teaching heavily. Beck has published Richardson’s “History of the Caliphate” and “The Emerging Leftist-Islamist Revolutionary Alliance,” and Richardson appeared in Beck’s video Rumors of War.
    Even if Richardson is personally sound in the Christian faith, which we do not know, he is acting in open disobedience to God’s commands to separate from... Read More

The Wild Turkey
    The wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is the largest game bird in North America. There are six sub-species showing minor differences: Eastern, Florida (Osceola), Rio Grande, Merriam’s, and Gould’s. There is a smaller Ocellated turkey that has rainbow-like iridescent feathering on his wings. It is only found on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
    The North American turkey gots its name by mistaken identity. The Spanish discovered it more than 400 years ago and took it back to Europe. There the English mistook it for an African guinea fowl they called a “turkey” because it came to England by way of Turkey. Thus, the North America turkey isn’t from Turkey, and the native American Indian isn’t... Read More

UNITED NATIONS FUNDS RESURRECTION OF ANCIENT IDOLS (Friday Church News Notes, January 12, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Since 2016, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has been funding the restoration or recreation of ancient idols, particularly goddesses. In April 2016, a replica of a Roman arch that once stood in front of a Baal temple was erected in London’s Trafalgar Square to celebrate UNESCO’s World Heritage Week. A few months later the Baal arch greeted attendees of the World Government Summit in Dubai. In... Read More

Training for Song Leaders
     The position of song leader is important. Just as orchestras need good conductors and armies need good officers, churches must have the right song leaders if they are to have effectual song services.
    An individual can worship God alone effectively if he is so inclined, but a congregation must be led. That is why God has ordained leaders and has set forth high qualifications for them.
    It is true that the New Testament does not spell out the position of song leader or music director, but the Old Testament plainly sets forth this pattern and there is no need to restate it in the New. God tells us that the Old Testament is for our example today (Romans 15:4).
    The song services are too important to be given into the hands of just anyone... Read More
Wicked, Stinking Pastoral Pragmatism
    Pragmatism on the part of pastors is a wicked, stinking thing, because it is so destructive to the work of God.
    God’s Word says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Co. 5:17), but the pragmatist says, “I can’t possibly require such evidence of those who profess Christ and pray a sinner’s prayer.”
    God’s Word says the members of the apostolic churches “continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42), but the pragmatist says, “I can’t possibly require that of my... Read More

A Flat Earth, Nuttiness, and the Lunar Eclipse
    On November 28, 2017, we published a report entitled “The Earth Is Flat and We Didn’t Land on the Moon.” It contained an excerpt from a report by Dr. Danny Faulkner containing testimonies by U.S. astronauts, plus links to various reports debunking the flat earth myth.
    The title of the November report was written “tongue in cheek,” of course, because in my estimation, the flat earth stance is unadulterated nonsense. I am convinced that it is held by people with a perverse spirit toward reality. Pagan mythology aside, mankind has known that the earth is a sphere since ancient times. Since at least...Read More

MORE EVIDENCE UNEARTHED OF ISRAEL’S ANCIENT HISTORY (Friday Church News Notes, January 5, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “2,700-year-old seal impression,” The Times of Israel, Jan. 1, 2018: “Past and present collided last week when an extremely rare seal impression discovered in Jerusalem’s Western Wall plaza and bearing the inscription ‘To the governor of the city’ was presented to Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.

THE UNITED NATIONS’ REBELLION AGAINST GOD (Friday Church News Notes, December 29, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - It is not often that the nations have an opportunity to vote up or down on the authority of the Bible, but they had that opportunity on December 18 when the United Nations voted on whether to support America’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. On December 6, President Donald Trump announced from the White House, “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” In so doing... Read More

LOOKING FOR A MAN OF PEACE AND A SUPREME PROBLEM SOLVER (Friday Church News Notes, December 22, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - In Jewish tradition, the building of the Third Temple is associated with the coming of the Messiah. According to Maimonides (Rambam), the highest rabbinical authority, any Jew that starts rebuilding the temple is a potential Messiah. Shimon ben Kosiba was considered a Messiah in the second century when he led a revolt to recapture Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. He was named Bar Kokhba (”Son of the Star”) based on the Messianic prophecy of Numbers 24:17, and a coin was struck depicting the temple with the ark of the covenant inside and the Messianic star on the roof. By this tradition, it is simple to see how the Antichrist will be looked.... Read More

Consequences of Sin in a Believer’s Life
     The born again child of God has “everlasting consolation through grace” (2 Th. 2:16), but this does not mean he can live as he pleases.
    Those who don’t believe in eternal security say that this doctrine makes it easy for the believer to sin, but this is because they don’t understand the Bible’s doctrine of eternal security.
    First, the Bible...Read More
