In 1927, economist John Maynard Keynes said, “We will not have any more crashes in our time.” In June of 2017, Federal Reserve Chairperson Janet Yellen said: “Would I say there will never, ever be another financial crisis? You know probably that would be going too far but I do think we’re much safer and I hope that it will not be in our lifetimes and I don’t believe it will be.” [Click here to enlarge the picture.] On September 5, 1929, leading U.S. economist Irving Fisher said, “There may be a recession in stock prices, but not anything...Read More

During the years when I’ve paid attention to sermons, I’ve listened to over 2,100 messages. I’ve heard a lot of talks related to marriage, sex, money, leadership, prophecy, sin, the Good News, Christmas, Easter, heaven, hell, etc. Many of the sermons were verse-by-verse teaching from books of the Bible.

The frenzy has begun. There is blood in the water and by all appearances, it looks like it might lead directly back to our now Commander-In-Chief, Donald Trump.

Let’s assume you don’t believe in God. You simply recognize the Bible as a history book, beginning with the origins of the Jewish nation. Let’s also assume you’ve seen the 1956 Charlton Heston movie, The Ten Commandments. Now we’re good to go.

Your containers for measuring dry materials or liquids must be accurate.” Later Moses transcribed this directive: “You must use accurate scales when you weigh out merchandise,...Read More
On July 4, 1996, an American president gave a speech which is as relevant today: We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution—but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:...Read More
