img611006Arutz Sheva: “Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24, a week after Congress votes on a measure of disapproval regarding the nuclear deal with Iran, and probably before a vote to override a presidential veto, if one is required. While the visit was scheduled independently, without the Iran vote in mind, Francis’s presence may make the lobbying efforts of the forces opposed to the deal more difficult.

It is not known if the Pope will say anything about the nuclear deal but according to Politico, “he’s not shy about his opinions, and odds are that he will discuss his support for the Iran deal. If so, his remarks could prove the antithesis of the speech Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made to Congress in March, which was aimed at galvanizing opposition to the deal.”

The Vatican said in July that the agreement reached by Iran and the P5-1 powers on the Iranian nuclear program “is viewed in a positive light by the Holy See.”

Opinion: Based on the June 26, 2015 meeting with terrorist leader Mahmoud Abbas and Pope Francis, granting formal recognition of a Palestinian state and a gift of the Angel of Peace, there is no doubt whose side this pontiff is on.

Catholic catechism teaches that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was assumed into heaven from Jerusalem. Neither the assumption or Jerusalem as the place of Mary’s death can be substantiated by Scripture.

Look for the September 24 speech and subsequent UN address to favor the Iran nuclear deal further isolating Israel from the nations and future judgment on the church, Genesis 12:3.

Today’s Post was written by Dr. Henry Morris who founded the Institute for Creation Research in 1970.

We were privileged to have a member of the ICR science team, Frank Sherwin, at our church a few years ago. His scientific explanations were thoughtful and Scriptural, and always pointed us to the glory of God, our Creator.

If you ever get the chance to attend one of their conferences, we urge you to do so. This fine group of Christian scientists helps to advance our understanding of creation as told in Genesis. Read more about what they do at www.ICR.org

Iran's Supreme Leader Khameni publishes book on how to eliminate Israel

American Thinker: “Ayatollah Ali Khameni has published his version of Mein Kampf, a 416 page book outlining his strategy to eliminate Israel, which he describes as  “a cancerous tumor.” Although it is currently available only in Iran, an Arabic translation is underway, and sooner ort later it will achieve wide readership in the Muslim world. The Obama administration is no doubt hoping it will achieve no notice in the United States until after the Iran deal is voted upon, because the plan advocated will be immensely aided by its implementation. Amir Taheri of the New York Post obtained a copy from Iran:

Khamenei makes his position clear from the start: Israel has no right to exist as a state. He uses three words. One is “nabudi” which means “annihilation.” The other is “imha” which means “fading out,” and, finally, there is “zaval” meaning “effacement.”

He states that one of his fondest desires is to pray in Jerusalem.”

Opinion: What is it about that piece of real estate that makes the nations intoxicated, Zechariah 12:2? What is it that compels the Arab world and every pope throughout history to covet Jerusalem?

What is it that will make the armies of the world surround Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:3) in a final war?

Jerusalem is located approximately 27 miles inland from the coast. It has no natural resources. Most of it is built upon the ruins of previous structures.

In 1867, Mark Twain commented of the city: “Renowned Jerusalem itself, the stateliest name in history, has lost all its ancient grandeur, and is become a pauper village; the riches of Solomon are no longer there to compel the admiration of visiting Oriental queens; the wonderful temple which was the pride and glory of Israel, is gone.”

Twain described the land of Israel in general as one of “desolation, depopulation, and poverty”.

When the Jewish people started to return to the Land in 1882 in large numbers, the nations began to stir. What is fascinating is that Jerusalem has never been important to the nations unless it was important to Israel (Jews).

From 1948 to 1977 while Jerusalem was in Jordan’s control, King Hussein bin Talal rarely visited the city and in fact made his first visit in 1957. (ref: The Divided City by Kai Bird)

Also, Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran but is mentioned 660 times in the OT and 146 times in the NT. If I could choose one verse out of 806 that must irk both Satan and Khamenei something awful, it is Jeremiah 3:17:

At that time, they shall call Jerusalem ‘Throne of the Lord.”

Guest Post: Obama’s Reykjavik moment

The Washington Times: “Polls show most Americans understand the farcical P5 + 1 Iranian nuclear negotiations are on a disaster course. Nonetheless, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have announced a one week extension to their prior June 30 deadline. Quite favorably, Mr. Obama made clear during a press conference that he will “walk

SUNDAY POST: The Gate to Prophecy

From Dr. David Reagan: Why is the Eastern Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem closed, and what does it have to do with Bible prophecy? “Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the LORD said to me, This gate shall be
