New article on 12 prophecies of Christ's first coming and
12 prophecies of His Second Coming in our day!
One of the unique things
about the Bible is its future predictive nature. It is the only
spiritual book that can really make this claim with detailed and
impossible to miss prophecies. Read about 12 detailed prophecies of
the Messiah's first coming and 12 detailed prophecies of His second
The primary goal of this site is
to give the reader enough knowledge to intelligently enter into a personal
relationship with God through Jesus Christ. There are plenty of religions that
will give you a set of rules and rituals to follow and tell you that you might
or might not get to their version of heaven. However I want to point you to
that the God who created you wants to give you a "new nature" and replace the
"old sinful nature" that He says you are born with (an old nature that
is bent to do wrong). That's what a real living
relationship with the true God is about, being born from above spiritually, it
is called the "second birth". This necessary conversion is what this site
will elaborate on as you read the materials therein. The Bible is a
"revelation" from God about the past, present and future. Revelatory knowledge
is knowledge that you would not know unless God revealed it to you. In other
words you would have no way of figuring it out on your own by just observation
of the world you were born into. I would commend to you to start to read the
word of God (New Testament first) and let the Spirit of God speak to you. (King
James Version recommended)
Much of this site is apologetic in
nature (giving intelligent reasons for the born again Christian faith not a
spurious blind faith). Some areas covered Creation Science vs. Evolutionary
Science, Noahs Flood, the
Pre-flood world, Dinosaurs in the Bible, Fossils, the Age of the Earth, Bible Prophecy and
the Rapture. Note that I said Evolutionary Science as this
worldview presents itself as "science" when it is really a religious
philosophical worldview, foundational to the Humanist Manifesto and the Secular
Humanist (the major assumption being that there is no intelligent
Creator designer). Atheists will call themselves skeptics but as a good
detective I am highly skeptical that their foundational assumption is true. :)
Right at the start I want to make a
distinction about the definition of science and the issue of origins. Empirical
science is repeatable, testable, verifiable laboratory science in which your
worldview on origins does not matter. Real
empirical science in the here and now can be done by any competent scientist
regardless of his views on origins. So the evolutionary worldview and the
creation worldview about the unobservable past falls outside of empirical
science and should be kept separate from it. Neither is by definition real
science but more a model of origins which uses assumptions and some
science techniques to extrapolate earth history into the past. The question
becomes whose assumptions are valid and what model best explains what we see in
the here and now.
A Small Disclaimer: The
Christian part of this site is meant to reveal why the Judeo-Christian worldview
is accurate and true. It is meant to give you sound reasons as to why you should become a Biblical Christian
and not neglect the call of Jesus Christ upon your life. The one thing I cannot do for
you is take the step to actually become a Christian. That
responsibility has been placed in your hands by God.
about which church you align yourself with in these end times as the vast majority of them have defected
from the faith in many areas. My
thoughts would be to seek fellowship with like minded believers which may or may
not involve a building. God always has a remnant of churches true to him in
times of apostasy.
A few of the areas of defection would be denying the
first 11 chapters of Genesis and Noah's flood as true history (like really
Jesus himself affirmed the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are we to
call Him a liar? apparently many are
prepared to do so), holding to views other than
pre-tribulation Bible prophecy, mixing worldly
humanistic psychology with the Bible, not
supporting the nation of Israel and God's end time plan for her, watering down
the gospel to easy believism with no real heart felt repentance and call to
surrender the will and take up the cross and follow Christ, emphasizing
experience over sound doctrine instead of doctrine measuring the experience, seeking
after signs and wonders, ecumenism through setting aside doctrinal differences,
and using modern Bible Versions derived from questionable Greek and
Hebrew manuscripts versus the God preserved manuscripts that
underlie the King James Version.
It is an unfortunate sign,
but a predicted sign of the end times, that apostasy would
be abounding. Don’t let bad examples of Christianity stumble you or cause you to
scoff. Satan is always masquerading as a Christian or
Christian leader or starting up Christian sects which usually give a
bad name to Christianity through some type of immorality or bizarre
behavior or teachings. What better way to discredit the true
Christian way and new birth. A real
Christian won't be sinless but he will sin less ie not practicing
sin as a way of life.
Not every spiritual experience is from God, in
fact most are counterfeit experiences from fallen spirits. Whether
these spirits call themselves ascended masters, or your higher self,
or your friendly spirit guide, or your inner guide or space aliens
or the bliss or nirvana or going clear or even Jesus their goal is
to deceive or control you or worse yet indwell you. Satan is
quite happy to offer you an experience to lead you into a false
religion or wrong path! How many of the eastern mystical religions and even Islam
will tell you of their amazing religious experiences. Every
spiritual experience must be tested by the true and pure word of God
to avoid being deceived. Take a study of occultist practices warned
about by God in Deuteronomy chapter 18 and you will see that they
are abounding in our society and in these religions. It is amazing
how the occult practice of Yoga has mushroomed in our society under
the guise of stretching and exercise. Yoga is the main practice of
the religion of Hinduism. A religion whose main tenets are in
complete opposition to who God says he is and how you come to him.
The typical Hindu greeting in Yoga class "Namaste" means "I
salute the god within you" an allusion to pantheism where Hindus
believe that everything is god and all humans have a divine spark
within them. Through Yoga their ignorance of their own divinity can
be realized. Well no, you are personal, God is personal, He is not within you, He is
separated from you by the sin you commit under the power of the
fallen human nature.
Reincarnation, well no, it is appointed unto man
once to die but after this the judgment, Hebrews 9 v 27. The quest
for enlightenment through occult meditation practices? Well no, the
real need is for forgiveness of sin and the new spiritual birth
given through Jesus. The only fruit of occult meditation practices
will be frequent encounters with fallen spirits who seek to deceive,
control and destroy. If you are involved
in these types of occult spiritual practices the spirits behind them
will give you a hardness against the God of the Bible and His Son
who in love for you stood in your place in God's courtroom 2,000
For each of us personally it is going to
be one on one in God's court room
whether you believe it or not.
And He does not want you to come to that meeting alone on
your own merits. God's counsel is to settle out of court through His
Son who has already stood in your place and my place and paid the
penalty due in His own courtroom. In love he did not grasp the
highest privileges of His position in heaven but set those aside and
took the lowest position on earth. He came on a rescue mission. He
willingly because of love for you and for me took the blows we
deserved. He was innocent yet stood in the place of the guilty. I
had with my sinful life allowed Him no
alternative. There was no other way to deal with the problem of sin
and be both just and loving.
No other way to remove the penalty of sin levied against you and
against me! If I had to pay it was eternal separation from God, if
He paid, a way was opened up for forgiveness and peace with God. Did you
know that even when Jesus was creating the universe that He knew he
would have to enter His own creation and make that payment in God's
courtroom. He is the only person who truly loves you in all the
unconditional fullness that that term really means. He is the only
person you can really trust without reservation.
Will you let God soften up your heart so you see yourself as
lost and under penalty in His courtroom? Will you count the cost to receive and follow Christ? Will you ask God to
make you willing to surrender the throne of your will to His Son and trust in
that payment in God's courtroom 100%? Better to face things, than run and hide in
spiritual darkness or hide in a religion of do the best you can. Do you know of anybody who is doing a good job of running
their own lives?
God is waiting for you. He is withholding judgment on an awful
lot of sinful behavior as He waits and calls sinners to His Son for
the new birth. Do not be one who He says "resisted His Spirit in
2 Peter 3 verse 9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count
slackness; but is longsuffering (patient)
to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance.
Ezekiel 33 v 11 Say unto them, As I
live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the
wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye,
turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, (O fallen sinners,
turn to the Son)
Ephesians 2 v 1-3 And you (the new
believer) hath he quickened (caused to be born again), who were dead
in trespasses and sins. (v2) Wherein in time past ye walked
according to the course (sinful ways) of this world, according to
the prince of the power of the air (led by the fallen angelic
realm), the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.
(v3) Among whom also we all had our conversation (behavior) in times
past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh
and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath (born
spiritually dead with enmity towards God), even as others.
1 Peter 4 v 2,3 (v2)That he (the new
believer) no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh
(controlled by the sinful independent nature) to the lusts of men,
but to (doing) the will of God. (v3)For the time past of our life
may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we
walked in lasciviousness (sexual promiscuity with no shame), lusts
(overly strong selfish desires), excess of wine, revellings
(public displays of drunkenness and carousing from place to place to
banquetings, (living to party, if it feels good do it, self seeking
pleasure as life's only goal), and
abominable idolatries (participating in religions which have a false
way to God)
A good place to start is by downloading a free KJV Bible
from www.e-sword.net and read the book of
Matthew. God will meet you there, well be careful Satan may also stop by to
hinder you or pretend he is god or the holy spirit.
these thoughts in mind I hope you will read thoroughly and weigh carefully the
material presented. God’s justice and God’s love are both
satisfied and demonstratedfor you in the
person of Jesus Christ.

So as if the fresh dinosaur tissue above and
below isn't enough to seriously doubt a theory, now we are able to
write with squid ink that is allegedly 150 million years old! Hello,
can we follow the evidence to where it really leads?
Governments in North America currently sponsor
the Humanist world view in public education. Evolution is a
cornerstone of the “Humanist Manifesto”, a decidedly religious philosophical
worldview document. It may surprise you that the concept of evolution is not new but is part of eastern
religions such as Hinduism (which also claims to be one of the oldest
religions). Greek philosophers had the concept of evolution as part of their
“Great Chain of Being” ideas in around 600 BC.
The people that hold to the
Evolutionary Humanist worldview seek, possibly some
unintentionally, to exclude the Judeo Christian worldview from
access to their rightful share of each countries allocated education funds.
However the real issue is not “science” versus “religion”. It is “evolutionary science”
versus “creation science”. The humanists presenttheir worldview as “science” but
this in my opinion is misleading when dealing with the unobservable past. When it comes to “origins” neither the
evolutionary science worldview nor the creation science worldview can prove
their position by the “empirical scientific method”. Each worldview
has to use
foundational assumptions which are used to “interpret” the world in the present
and extrapolate into the past.
Therefore both can only develop a model that seeks to explain the world, the
rocks and fossils in the present.
Having examined the two models I find the
evolutionary model has very weak evidence that stands up to scrutiny of their
assumptions used to reach their interpretations of the world, the rocks and the
fossils in the here and now. Evolutionary assumptions which are foundational to
their interpretive system create
model of the past.
Evolutionists move past their foundational assumptions or beliefs
(of which we will examine) and begin
in my opinion to offer micro changes as examples of evolution. Usually all that is
really happening is variation in the genetic programming that is already built
into living things. No new genetic programming has been added.
In my opinion genetic barriers
of change are there that will never result in a change from one “kind” into
another. Notice I said “kind” not species as there is a big difference between
Another foundational assumption is that life sprang from non-living
materials. In otherwards, as the earth was a molten ball
cooling for millions of years eventually it began raining and somehow life
sprang into existence from non-living materials. This
has been presented by a number of scientists and mathematicians as impossible.
Perhaps this might be why some hold to life being seeded from
somewhere else in the universe.
The other main
foundation is called “natural selection”. This concept is
seems to have been given supernatural powers to add genetic information
and programming and build fantastically complex life forms all by time and
random chance. Natural selection actually does not have that
programming ability. It’s just another way of saying that as the
original genetic programming deteriorates in living things and as aging and
death result only those living things which have suffered the least amount of
genetic deterioration will likely survive.
The evolutionary model has a foundation of
in my opinion questionable validity,
seemingly doing the impossible, even the miraculous by random
events, time and chance.
Therefore both evolutionary
science and creation science are philosophical/religious worldviews
about the unrepeatable past history of earth.
This is why I believe both
models should have access to public funds and free discourseOne
proposal is that public
education needs to be funded by a voucher system where each parent can educate
their children under their worldview of choice. The current educational
situation is untenable as children are being force feda model of origins excluding in my opinion the better
In fact when we look at history
with how quickly the Communists of Russia and China championed the evolutionary
model of the past and excluded the creation model as the "opiate of the people"
you know what happened. Millions starved and murdered under that worldview!
education needs to be freed for all worldviews. One
proposal is to separate origins from science and teach empirical science only. A
separate origins course could be offered where both models of past history could
have freedom to be discussed.
think about it, real empirical science in the here and now can be done by any
competent scientist regardless of his views on origins. And yet we have this
palpable discrimination against one group of scientists based upon their view on
origins. What's even more galling is that the larger group is trying to prove
it's view on origins at taxpayers expense spending millions of dollars to chase
rabbit trails which never really support their philosophical views when you dig
into the results.
My name is Allan Ask
formerly of Drumheller, Alberta currently living in Calgary,
Alberta, Canada. The cornerstone of my site is the online book called "As in the
Days of Noah An Overview of Genesis to Revelation". Around 120 pages to read
with 12 chapters from 5 to 20 pages long.
I believe the Bible answers the big questions in life and have tried to
highlight the important issues for our generation. There are chapters on Creation Science
vs. Evolutionary Science, Noahs Flood, the Pre-flood world, Bible Prophecy, the return of Jesus
Christ and how to have a real relationship with God without being religious.
information on Creation Science vs. Evolutionary Science
will be a real eye opener. The media, public education, and Hollywood are the
leading purveyors of our time putting forth a
"atheistic evolutionary secular humanist world view"
which is diametrically opposed to the "Judeo-Christian
Historically the former world
view has enslaved minds and destroyed many a nation
while the latter world view when properly responded to and with proper checks
and balances in the nation has brought blessing from God.
Not only does evolution offer no valid
mechanism (see my online book chapter 4) to explain these designer moths. But it
just boggles the mind the amount of genetic programming required to do this. The
fingerprints of an infinite artist?
You would think that the replacement
for Carl Sagan and Stephen J. Gould would have an answer for such an important
question as this one. Another strike on the foundations of this worldview?
Listen for yourself as he kind of eventually misses the point.
Looking at ourselves, the world around us, and recent human history,
there is obviously something and someone out of control. What is the point to life if you
came from an animal and are headed for the grave? What is the purpose for life? What is
wrong with me and what is wrong with others? There are such horrendous things being done
to one another in this world. What hope is there for the future? Are we to gather as much
pleasure from this world as we can and then die?
These are real issues which I believe have real answers. This world is
not the way God originally created it. There was a rebellion against God by our original
parents Adam and Eve. The result was a broken relationship with God, the beginning of the
process of aging, death, and the birth of selfishness. We live in a world where everyone
is acting like a little god. In fact its encouraged and promoted as a virtue. The
daily news reveals what happens when the wills of little gods collide.
There is hope because God has promised to restore creation and the
human race to its pre-rebellion state. He wants every person to be restored to a right
relationship with him if they so choose. Thats the reason for the online book
available here. I believe that with a little detective work the evidence that is in the
world around us will confirm the Biblical account of Noahs Flood, the fall of the
human race into sin, and each persons need to be restored to a right relationship
with the true God.
