introduction:
Tolerance is the buzz word ricocheting around politically correct circles over the past few years. What that really means is that all political, philosophical and theologically correct viewpoints must be tolerated, and any other viewpoints must be mercilessly squelched. The bottom line of this whole rhetoric is that the Christian viewpoint is hateful and must be silenced.

Behold a White Horse

 

Price R 249.00

 

  
The final world dictator seeking global domination will also be an “Assyrian” who is here characterized by a bow, riding a white horse. It is interesting how many confuse this counterfeit with the rider of the white horse in Revelation 19. In chapter 6, however, this rider is among some very bad company!
“Behold a White Horse” explores the career of the first of these “Four Horsemen” who seems to have at least 33 titles in the Old Testament and 13 in the New Testament and the common term “AntiChrist” really isn’t one of them. We also explore the only physical description of him in the Scripture!
• Why is he a “mistaken identity”?
• How do we know this is NOT the Christ?
• What is the precedent condition(s) for his appearance?
• What is the precedent condition for the unsealing of the Seven Sealed Book? What is the Seven Sealed Book?
• Is his “bow” a pun? How? Why?
• How can he “go forth to conquer” if he is a “peace maker”?
• Is the Church on the earth at this time? How do we know?
• Is He alive today? How do we know?
• How can he be the “Seed of the Serpent”?
Join Chuck Missler as he looks at the first of the Five Horsemen.

• Are the gifts of the Spirit for today?

• Do all Christians have spiritual gifts?

• What is the greatest sign of being filled with the Holy Spirit?

Myths of Eschatology

DVD

by Dr. Chuck Missler

 

 Myths of Eschatology

Price 199.00

 

Description

Eschatology is a part of theology concerned with the final events of history, or the ultimate destiny of humanity. This concept is commonly referred to as the “End Times” or “Last Days”. In this field of study, there is a minefield of disinformation, misunderstandings and myths concerning many future events:

  • The Rapture
  • Does the Church go through the “Great Tribulation”?
  • Is there a literal “Millennium”?
  • Does the Church “replace” Israel?
  • What happened to the Davidic Covenant?
  • Is everyone in Heaven equal?
  • Under grace, does behavior matter?

Dr. Chuck Missler sheds light on these and some of the widely accepted myths surrounding some of the most important events on our horizon.

The long-planned gesture at the end of a three-day visit to ex-Soviet Armenia came in the face of fresh Turkish ire after Francis used the word "genocide" to refer to the century-old slaughter that Ankara furiously rejects.

The powerful bloc's willingness to stand by Temer, expressed to Reuters by five of its leading lawmakers, bolsters his chances of surviving the scandal and ousting suspended President Dilma Rousseff in an impeachment trial, despite losing three ministers in a month to a graft probe of state oil company Petrobras . The widening scandal has undermined Temer's six-week-old government and shaken confidence in his ability to pass reforms aimed at cutting Brazil's fiscal deficit as Latin America's largest economy faces its worst recession in decades.

Last year Francis described the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians in World War One as "the first genocide of the 20th century", days before commemorations to mark the centenary of the massacres in April.

1501 Ballet of Chestnuts – a banquet held by Cesare Borgia in the Papal Palace where fifty prostitutes or courtesans are in attendance for the entertainment of the guests.

 

The Banquet of Chestnuts, known more properly as the Ballet of Chestnuts, refers to a fête in Rome, and particularly to a supper held in the Papal Palace by Cardinal Cesare Borgia, son of Pope Alexander VI on 30 October 1501. An account of the banquet is preserved in a Latin diary by Protonotary Apostolic and Master of Ceremonies Johann Burchard (it is titled Liber Notarum), but its accuracy is disputed.

 

The banquet was given in Cesare's apartments in the Palazzo Apostolico. Fifty prostitutes or courtesans were in attendance for the entertainment of the banquet guests. Burchard describes the scene in his Diary:

 

 

 

 

On the evening of the last day of October, 1501, Cesare Borgia arranged a banquet in his chambers in the Vatican with "fifty honest prostitutes",called courtesans, who danced after dinner with the attendants and others who were present, at first in their garments, then naked. After dinner the candelabra with the burning candles were taken from the tables and placed on the floor, and chestnuts were strewn around, which the naked courtesans picked up, creeping on hands and knees between the chandeliers, while the Pope, Cesare, and his sister Lucretia looked on. Finally, prizes were announced for those who could perform the act most often with the courtesans, such as tunics of silk, shoes, barrets, and other things.
