Bill Nye Seems Unconcerned About Hell

Many of you have probably heard of "Bill Nye, the Science Guy".  He debated Ken Ham on the topic of Creation vs. Evolution.  I believe he also has a TV show on PBS that explains science topics.

‘Even If I Am Going to Hell’: Bill Nye ‘the Science Guy’ Defends Evolutionary Beliefs

In the latest issue of a widely-circulated science magazine, Bill Nye ‘the Science Guy’ defiantly defends his evolutionary beliefs and says that even if he ends up ‘going to Hell,’ it still won’t prove that the earth is young.

As previously reported, Nye debated Answers in Genesis (AiG) president Ken Ham earlier this year in a historic creation/evolution debate that was viewed by millions. Two months after the debate, Nye attacked Ham’s biblical creation beliefs in an opinion column published by Skeptical Inquirer magazine.

“I held strongly to the view that [the debate] was an opportunity to expose the well-intending Ken Ham and the support he receives from his followers as being bad for Kentucky, bad for science education, bad for the U.S., and thereby bad for humankind,” Nye wrote in the Skeptical Inquirer column. “I do not feel I’m exaggerating when I express it this strongly.”

In the column, Nye asserted that his evolutionary beliefs are founded on “elementary science and common sense.”

“Let’s say that I am, through my actions, doomed, and that I will go to Hell,” Nye told Popular Science. “Even if I am going to Hell, that still doesn’t mean the Earth is 6,000 years old. The facts just don’t reconcile.”


Psalm 14:1  The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

How clear can you get in the understanding of what God thinks of people who can look around at the intricacies of nature and not credit it to God?

Romans 1:20  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

I have no idea what God has planned for Bill Nye....maybe He will wake him up and turn him into an Evangelist!  What I do know is that Bill Nye has rejected God by holding to his beliefs that all of nature simply created itself!!  Foolishness!!  No common sense!!

But I did recently hear a sermon on hell that was terrifying to think about.  The pastor giving the sermon said, "God doesn't send people to hell.  No, people choose to go to hell."

At Judgment Day I have an idea that God will play Bill Nye's flippant comments about hell at his trial.

Putin is Under Satan's Influence

I'm telling you the truth!....we could blog 12 hours per day and not begin to scratch the surface of the prophetic headlines and articles that are blanketing our news.

Here is the headline today from Reuter's News;

Putin is under Satan’s influence, says leader of Kiev Orthodox Church

President Vladimir Putin has fallen under the spell of Satan and faces eternal damnation unless he repents, a top Ukrainian clergyman said in an unusually blunt statement that squarely blamed the Russian leader for the war in Ukraine.

Patriarch Filaret heads the Kiev Patriarchate, a branch of the Orthodox Church that broke away from Moscow in 1992 after the fall of the Soviet Union and the declaration of an independent Ukraine.

His church, a rival of the Moscow Patriarchate which is closely linked to Putin, strongly supports Ukrainian nationhood and the Kiev government’s struggle to defeat pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

“With great regret I must now say publicly that among the rulers of this world … there has appeared a new Cain, not by his name but by his deeds,” Patriarch Filaret said on Saturday, invoking the Biblical character who killed his brother Abel.

“Like the first fratricide of history Cain, these deeds show that the afore-mentioned ruler has fallen under the action of Satan,” he said in the statement, published on the patriarchate’s website in Ukrainian, Russian and English. (here)

The statement, entitled “New Cain”, was released on the first full day of a ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian rebels. At least 2,600 people have died in fighting in eastern Ukraine since it erupted in April.

Putin is a baptized Orthodox Christian and has forged close ties with Russia’s Orthodox Church, seeing it as a valuable ally in his battle with what he sees as a decadent Western world.


Friends, let me reprint this sentence just to make sure you didn't miss it;

Putin is a baptized Orthodox Christian and has forged close ties with Russia’s Orthodox Church, seeing it as a valuable ally in his battle with what he sees as a decadent Western world.

Putin might very well see his battle against The West as a religious war.  He looks at America and see perversion, gun violence, drug addictions, divorce, fornication, abortion and children with no respect for their parents...and decides he needs to stop all the filth from coming into his country and bankrupting it more than it already is!!  He may be saying, "Enough is enough!!"

Also please note that Hitler forged very good relations with the church leaders in Germany before he went on his global rampage that killed 1/3 of the worlds Jews and tens of millions of bystanders.

And finally remember what God says will be coming for Israel and be led by the leader of Russia (Gog of Magog) in the very last days;

Ezekiel 38

‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.
7 “‘Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. 8 After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. 9 You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.

10 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. 11 You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. 12 I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land.”

As we have said, we have NO IDEA if Putin could end up being Gog of Magog....but if he isn't, he certainly is a powerful foreshadowing.

Also, please remember that MANY prophecy watchers believe this event spoken of in Ezekiel 38 will happen during the first 3 1/2 years of the 70th Week of Daniel.  Why?  Because of the sentence that I bolded in verse 8 above...."all of them live in safety."  People can't say that about Israel today.  Also in verse 11 it talks about Israel being unwalled, peaceful and unsuspecting.  Certainly that is NOT the case today that we see in Israel.

But after the rapture, the Antichrist will be revealed and he will put together a peace agreement for Israel.  It may include tearing down the wall the separates the Jews from the Arabs of Palestine.  The Jews may believe that the Antichrist is their promised messiah and so willfully put their trust in him that they become unsuspecting and unbelieving that any outside forces would dream of invading them.

So....if Putin is Gog....and Ezekiel 38 happens AFTER the rapture....then how close might we be to the time when Christ could come for His bride?

In light of this, "how then shall we live?"

Senator Cruz Has it Right Regarding Israel

Senator Cruz was speaking at a "Defense of Christians" conference and hecklers began interrupting him.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was booed off-stage at a conference in Washington on Wednesday after criticizing those who “hate” Israel and saying Christians have “no greater ally” than the Jewish state.

The Texas senator was speaking at the “In Defense of Christians” dinner Wednesday evening, an event focusing on Middle East Christians. Partway through his speech, a group of hecklers began shouting at him.

The jeers started after Cruz said Christians in the region are being “exterminated,” but have no greater ally than Israel.

Cruz initially tried to speak over the hecklers. But as he continued talking, claiming those who “hate” Israel also “hate” America, the hecklers kept interrupting him.  

“I will say this -- I am saddened to say that some here … are so consumed with hate,” Cruz said, pausing from his remarks to address the unruly members of the audience. “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you.”  

Cruz then walked off the stage.

Cruz released a statement after the incident saying what should have been a “night of unity” deteriorated “into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred.”

Cruz said a “vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel” but they “cannot shout down the truth.”


Nope!  You cannot shout down the truth!  Amen, Senator Cruz!

God has big plans for Israel and the Jews.  We followers of Christ are GRAFTED IN to the story that began with the Jews.  Following the rapture of the church, prophecy will begin to unfold rapidly for the Israel and the Jewish people.   Satan knows this and so he hates Israel and Jews with a vengeance. So as we approach the last days we can expect people around us to hate Israel and Jews with a vengeance.

Say a quick prayer for Senator Cruz.  It is going to get harder and harder for him to stand in Washington if he keeps boldly speaking the truth like this.

Can You Know For Sure If You Are a Man or Woman?

Up is down, down is up, left is right, right is left, good is evil, evil is good, men are women, women are men.

Wow!  What a messed up, confusing world we live in!

The good news is that Notre Dame is offering high-school kids a class to help folks figure out if they are a men or women...and they can even get credit for it!!

The University of Notre Dame will conduct a “Gender and Culture in American Society” course for high school students next summer, where they will be encouraged to question their gender identity in exchange for college credit.

The Catholic school’s Gender Studies director, Abby Palko, will lead the course and will “ask [the high schoolers] to explain how they know for sure whether they are male or female.”

A website, outlining the accentuated topics covered in the course says, “[w]e will address the questions of how ‘woman’/’the feminine’ and ‘man’/’the masculine’ have been represented and created in our cultural system.”

“When you were a baby, did your parents dress you in pink or blue? Why don’t girls (typically) play football? Why don’t guys (typically) wear make-up?” the website asks.

One of the goals of the course is that “[s]tudents will develop a basic understanding of current theoretical explanations of gender, including femininity, masculinity, sexualities, patriarchy, and feminism.”


You see friends, in the beginning God created MAN and then he created WOMAN to be a helper for man.  Clearly, he made their sex organs as MAN and WOMAN as well.  Satan doesn't like God's plan, and never has, so he is constantly devising plans to blur the lines.

"Did God REALLY say that a man and another man shouldn't copulate?", asks Satan.  "That doesn't sound very loving or tolerant."

"Do you REALLY know if there is a difference between men and women...or are we all just people?", asks the professor to a bunch of confused high-school kids.

Lord, help us!

Most Rain EVER!

Arizona got drenched yesterday.  The Governor declared a statewide emergency.  Large parts of major interstates were washed away and now the headlines are reporting it....the most rain EVER!

The National Weather Service recorded 3.29 inches of rain at the Phoenix airport, by far the most precipitation ever received in one day in the city. The previous record was 2.91 inches in 1939.

Other Phoenix metro areas received staggering amounts of rain for the desert. Chandler recorded 5.63 inches, while Mesa had 4.41 inches.

Phoenix sometimes receives heavy rain and wind during the summer months, the result of monsoon storms in the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The past six years have produced a highly erratic pattern as the city has gone from huge rainfall one summer to scant precipitation the next, said meteorologist Charlotte Dewey.

For example, Phoenix received 5.7 inches of rain during the summer storm season in 2008, followed by less than an inch the next summer. The 2011 summer was marked by little rain and towering dust clouds that enveloped the city, while this season has produced record rain. Monday's single-day rainfall totals eclipsed the average total precipitation for the entire summer. 


So in just a few hours, parts of the state got more rain than they usually receive during the entire summer!

For now, we can file this headline under the "Earth Is Groaning" file....along with the 1000 other headlines with NEVER and EVER in them.

Hamas Rebuilding Tunnels and Missiles

The cease fire between Hamas in Gaza and Israel just happened a handful of days ago...and already Hamas has started rebuilding the damaged tunnels and constructing missiles.  As soon as they feel as if they are substantially re-armed, I'm guessing they will commence firing missiles into Israel again.

Remember, when Hamas' sole purpose for existence is the destruction of Israel and the killing of's not like they can all of a sudden transition their party to help build schools, infrastructure and jobs to help their people transition into the 21st century...NOPE....they are gonna stay focused on killing Jews....even if it means their city of Gaza gets destroyed 100 times in the process and thousands of their children and civilians get killed in the cross fire!  "Allah-Akbar!!"

And Europe and the USA have the nerve to tell Israel to make peace with these clowns!!

Hamas has renewed rocket manufacturing and tunnel building two weeks into the ceasefire, according to a report by Ynet News quoting a senior political source.

Why should anyone be surprised? Hamas makes no secret of the fact that its only raison d’etre is the destruction of the State of Israel and all Jews. At a time when the focus is supposed to be on rebuilding Gaza, Hamas takes what little materials there are for its own military needs.

There can be no greater demonstration of its cynical disregard of the requirements of the citizens who elected it to power with the assumption that their welfare would be paramount.

Indirect negotiations regarding future arrangements for a long-term peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians were set to begin in Cairo shortly. However, Hamas has decided to challenge Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and test his response to their extensive reinforcement efforts.

It is not clear how Israel will respond to Hamas rearming, resupplying, and – most importantly – rebuilding the tunnels leading into Israeli territory. Although Israel is capable of acting militarily, the overall situation in the volatile Middle East has changed, even in the last month.

Terrorist activity has increased on Israel’s northern borders. The abduction of United Nations observers on its Syrian border, and rumblings emerging from Hezbollah in Lebanon mean Israel can not only focus on Hamas.

Yedioth Ahronoth’s political analyst, Shimon Shiffer, said Israeli Military Intelligence is shortly expected to present a comprehensive report to the political establishment regarding Hamas’ rehabilitation efforts.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Sunday that he did not believe it is possible to demilitarize Gaza. Like Benjamin Netanyahu, he compared Hamas to the Islamic State (ISIS), claiming that the Gaza group was no less dangerous.

To prove his point, Mahmoud al-Zahar, a senior Hamas official in the West Bank spoke on the subject.

“If the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank held a quarter of the tools at the disposal of the resistance in Gaza – Israel would be demolished in a day.

He added that, as far as Hamas is concerned, the security coordination in the West Bank between the Palestinian Authority and Israel was a crime. He intimated that if Hamas wrested control of the West Bank from Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority, Israel’s days would be numbered.

Al-Zahar also dismissed Israeli claims that the IDF destroyed all the group’s tunnels.

“Who is stopping us right now from building new tunnels?”

Certainly not the world, which has now shifted its attention to other trouble-spots.

All the signs point to yet another round in the Israel – Hamas conflict. It’s simply a question of when.


Now here is the scary part for all of us who dwell in the USA.....our President and his administration is now siding with the village idiots of Europe and will soon DEMAND that Israel withdraw back to the 1967 borders.  Yep!!

It seems the world wants to give the Angry-Muslim-horde a better run at destroying God's nation and God's people.  Those 1967 borders would be indefensible for Israel...which is exactly what the world wants.

But, of course, God has other plans.  Remember, He told us that in the Last Days he would call the Jews home and plant them back in their ancient land of Israel....and they will NEVER be totally wiped off that land EVER again.

Amos 9:15
"I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them."....says God.

Since God said it, you can bet that Satan and all his Muslim horde wants to do everything possible to make it a lie.

Thankfully, our God created Lucifer and one day (maybe soon) is going to put him (Satan) in the abyss for a little while....and then one day, at the end of the 1000 year reign of Christ, Satan will be thrown into the Lake of Fire for all eternity.  What a day that will be!!

Keep praying and working people!  The end is in sight and Satan is NOT happy about it!

Are We In the Last Hours?

No man knows the day or the hour of when the Lord is going to return to call His bride (true believers) to meet him in the air.   Anyone who says that they do can be immediately labeled as a false prophet.

But Jesus told us clearly that if we are watching all the signs that He, and other prophets, told us to watch for we WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED.  It's not just one sign, but when they all start to happen at once, then we are to start looking up and lift up our heads because our salvation, from the coming wrath of God, is near.

Today we find an article where Rev. Franklin Graham ponders whether we are in the last hours before Jesus could come for us.

Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse and son of world-renowned preacher Billy Graham, said that given all the “bad news” about the killing of Christians by Muslims in some countries, and attacks on Christians by the media and the government even in America, he cannot “help but wonder if we are in the last hours before our Lord Jesus Christ returns.”

“As I read the news, I can’t help but wonder if we are in the last hours before our Lord Jesus Christ returns to rescue His church and God pours out His wrath on the world for the rejection of His Son,” said Rev. Graham in a post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) website.

“I don’t know if we have hours, days, months, or years—but as Christians, God calls us to take the truth of the Gospel to the ends of the earth,” said Graham.  “Our job is to warn sinners of the consequences of sin and show them that God is loving and gracious, willing to forgive if we come to Him in repentance and faith.”


1 Thessalonians 5

Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
