Andre Rieu's Silenzio with Roger Diederan


Sissel Kyrkjebø - O Holy Night - Most beautiful voice ever heard!






"Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began" (2 Tim. 1:9).


How plain and pointed is the language of Holy Writ! It is man who, by his words, darkeneth counsel. It is impossible to state the case more clearly, or strongly, than it is stated here.


Our salvation is not "according to our works"; that is to say, it is not due to anything in us, nor the rewarding of anything from us; instead, it is the result of God's own "purpose and grace"; and this grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.


It is by grace we are saved, and in the purpose of God this grace was bestowed upon us not only before we saw the light, not only before Adam's fall, but even before that far distant "beginning" of Genesis 1:1.


And herein lies the unassailable comfort of God's people. If His choice has been from eternity it will last to eternity! "Nothing can survive to eternity but what came from eternity, and what has so come, will" (George S. Bishop).

Bridge to Babylon
























When his disciples asked Jesus about the sign of his Second Coming and the end of the world (age) he gave the several signs.  Then he said:


All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:8


“Beginning of sorrows” is a Greek idiom for “birth pangs”.  Just as a woman in labor notices the cramps getting more frequent and more intense as the time to deliver the baby draws near, so the signs of his Second Coming will be more frequent and more intense as the end of the world (age) draws near.



And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;    Luke 21:25

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.


Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.


And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  Zechariah 12:1-3

 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.


 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers        places.


 All these are the beginning of sorrows.  Matthew 24:6-8

Note: Some of the news story links (above) may go to web sites with whom we are not in theological agreement.  But we offer the news stories because we believe them to be accurate.  Many of these stories are not being covered by the mainstream news media, not even by Fox News.  Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was a big Clinton Foundation donor. He was also a major shareholder of Fox News (at least until his arrest in Saudi Arabia in late 2017).
