Fulfilled Prophecy Part 5 – Ammon & Moab

To the east of biblical Israel were three people groups that inhabited the land that is today Jordan. In the south was Edom, above it was Moab and to the north was Ammon. Last month we discussed prophecies regarding the children of Esau (Edomites). This time we turn our attention to the children of Lot, […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 4 “Edom”

We considered the starkly different prophecies given to two Lebanese port cities. But the seers of the Old Testament also prophesied against a number of other cities and nations, foretelling a specific future judgment unique to each. Edom was a mountainous nation on the eastern border of Israel (modern Jordan). Their western border was in the Negev […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 3 “Sidon”

Last month we considered Ezekiel’s prophecy about Tyre and the many specific predictions regarding the city’s demise that were remarkably fulfilled. Just a 40 minute drive up Lebanon’s Highway 51 from modern Tyre brings one to the slightly larger city of Saida, called Sidon in Bible times. Ezekiel’s Sidon prophecy stands in remarkable contrast to […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 2 “Tyre”

We continue our series on fulfilled prophecy by considering an amazing prediction made by Ezekiel about Tyre. Many of the Old Testament prophecies address a particular kingdom or city-state. Tyre was a rich merchant city. But they had increasingly become a seat of wickedness and the prophet said that they would be destroyed. Several specific […]

Fulfilled Prophecy Part 1 – “The Jews”

It is not unusual for scientifically-minded people to ask how it is that Christians can start with the Bible as a premise. It can be foreign to a mindset of empiricism and testing everything. But if one has enjoyed the experience of true communion with God while reading the words of scripture, this is compelling, […]

The Indian Thunderbird

The Thunderbird story as told by the western American Indians has become one of the most famous icons of their culture. Celebrated as having spiritual powers, this huge flying creature was understood differently by various native American tribes. For some, it took on mythological status and was fancifully depicted on totem poles. For others, it […]

The Jerusalem Dragon Well

The Old Testament seers prophesied against a number of ancient cities. On multiple occasions, the destroyed and abandoned cities were condemned to become the lair of dragons (see Isaiah 34:13 and Jeremiah 51:37). The prophet Jeremiah actually made the prediction that Israel would be carried away into captivity and Jerusalem would be broken down and […]

Naked Mole Rats

Naked mole-rats are marvelous and bizarre rodents, arguably the weirdest mammals God made. These East African critters do not get tumors. They are immune to certain types of chronic pain and even the irritant found in chili peppers. These odd little subterraneans live their lives like social insects in 300-strong colonies. In the tunnel recesses, a […]

Seed Germination

Spring has finally arrived at my home in the State of NH. Bulbs that we planted in fall have now sprouted. The process of germination is fascinating. In New England, seeds of native berries, like raspberries and blackberries, need to be abraded in a bird’s gizzard (eroded by digestive acids) before water and air can enter […]
