EndTimes Prophecy – A Fresh Look with Michael Basham and Benjamin Baruch

Benjamin Baruch is the speaker’s website.  In this interview he talks about how often prophecy has a two times occurrence and gives examples.  He also talks about the USA in bible prophecy and how quickly the nation will fall.  Possibly the most interesting thing though is about a word Jesus spoke to him about His 7 year ministry of which we have only seen 3 1/2 years so far.  This one was off the charts in resonating with me; both in giving me new things to think about and in some areas reaffirming things we are currently experiencing making clear their meanings and their place in bible prophecy.

The Case for Christ — one Man’s Journey to Find the Truth

The movie is compelling on so many levels. It was refreshing to see a journalist actually dig for a story and admit when he makes a mistake! The story is about Lee Strobel and his efforts to research and debunk the ‘myth’ of Christianity and faith. He is a writer and a seeker of truth from beginning to end.

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

If you are paying attention you can almost see the hound of heaven pounding on the door of his heart.  You can see the prayers of his wife materialize on the screen.  You can feel the agony of a man’s journey to find the truth even when it defies all he has built his life around.

Don’t miss this movie when it is in your area.  You and your entire family will enjoy and probably learn something too.  Did I mention there is a subplot that is as compelling as the main story.  It revolves around a court case and a media story that causes his conviction wrongfully.  I wonder how many of us would have had the courage to admit we were wrong and correct the matter?

Here is the website about the movie.

If you stay for the credits you will find out what happened to each of the main characters and even the children.  If you want to read the book, it is available on Amazon.  Click on pic below for more info or to order online.
