Today, the average adult cannot tell the names of the stars or the constellations that map out our night sky. Some can point to the North Star and make out the Little Dipper, but that is about the extent of it. However, if we look back several generations, to a time when there were no streetlights and no TVs, we find that most ancient civilizations, including the Mayans, were very aware of the cosmos and its religious connotations.
What is remarkable about the constellations, is that they were virtually the same in every civilization. Few cultures went out on their own and proposed a group of stars under the symbol of a different animal. And when they did, it was only a minor change. For example, Cancer, seen today as a Crab, was once depicted as a Scarab Beetle in ancient Egypt. (more…)
The Biblical View of the Constellations
David wrote, “The heavens declare the glory of God … Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.” Obviously, there is a message in the heavens that we need to understand.
For centuries, astrologers have been prognosticating the future, using the zodiac and its series of planets, stars and constellations. Where did they get the idea for such a thing? What is Astrology? And, what possible connection does it have with the Bible? (more…)
Usama Dakdok is director of The Straightway of Grace ministry, and host of the radio program “Revealing the Truth about Islam” heard on VCY America.
Usama Dakdok was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home. He attended a government school where the curriculum required that he learn about Islam, like every other student in a Muslim country. After coming to the United States in 1992, Usama discovered that there were many Muslims in America. He saw this as a great opportunity–as a Christian–to use his knowledge about Islam to reach out to the Muslim people with the word of Jesus Christ. (more…)
Update 2-4-14! Thanks Bill for the debate “Bill Nye the Science Guy”® of PBS-TV fame1 is crusading to capture your children’s minds for evolution. I get the idea of having America compete for future. Agreed. What I see is Bill Nye and others failed to do their homework on what Creation Scientist have already stated in actual Science. Seeking to discredit by claiming “Real Science” as his mantra he used the age old (pun intended) Geology & Fossil Record presuppositions. Please review the debate and see the 2 rebuttal videos from “Real Scientists” who perform actual science. I think you may see evidence of catastrophe. (more…)
Rick Warren’s Global Peace Plan vs. Scriptural Teachings on Peace, published by Southwest Radio Church. 1 hour film. The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America’s most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Rick Warren Christians & Muslims Together In light of the recent “3rd Intifada” declared by Muslims, calling for the total destruction of Jews and the Jewish State in order to consummate the Final Solution, declared on Facebook, which has now gone viral, it has now become even more critical to sound the alarm on His Holy Hill and flood the Internet with the truth that Islam is not a religion of Peace and their Jesus is not the Jesus of the Bible.
An epidemic of ritual abuse of children from infants to teenagers is sweeping through the country. According to recent TV and radio broadcasts 2 million children a year are reported missing, many too young to be runaways and 5 thousand unidentifiable bodies of children are found each year in the US alone. “Devil Worship: The Rise of Satanism” takes you behind the scenes into actual black witchcraft and satanic rituals. Former Satanists, practicing witches and law enforcement experts explain the vastness and diversity of the movement. Short Graphic Video clip added. Mature Audiences ONLY. (more…)
In the previous segment of this article we examined how evangelical Christianity has allied itself with Roman Catholicism through such agreements as Evangelicals and Catholics Together (E.C.T.) and such movements as Promise Keepers; these were used to unite both in social and moral objectives such as commitment to marriage and family, pro-life, anti-pornography, Drug-free America, etc. To share the common bond of Christian religion for the purpose of evangelizing the lost, but not Roman Catholics (though the RCC has objectives to convert evangelicals, as we shall see).

We at Amos37 are very happy to announce a partnership with brother James who has several sites that defend Gods word, expose the deceptions in the Church and build up those in the most Holy faith. We will post and feature several series of articles to help further the ministry of Gods word. The following is a hard look at Evangelicals and Catholics together??? ECT. “The most significant event in almost 500 years of church history took place March 29, 1994. Leading evangelicals and Catholics signed a joint declaration, “Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the 3rd Millennium.” The document overturns the Reformation and does incalculable damage to the cause of Christ.” (more…)
Here at Amos37 we recognize that few people have been prepared for today to ministrer like Ed Decker, founder of Saints Alive, was a Mormon for 20 years of his adult life. He was a member of the Melchizedek priesthood, a Temple Mormon and active in many church positions. Through a crisis in his life, Ed met the real Jesus and his life was changed forever. An active author, speaker and evangelist, Ed has brought the light of Biblical truth to uncountable thousands of those lost in spiritual darkness. Today, the work of Saints Alive Ministries has expanded worldwide and includes ministry to other groups such as the Masonic Lodge. (more…)
I saw Ken Ham speak at a homeschool confrence on Science and the subject of evolution. I walked out of there in awe of Gods word and the simple problem of believing evolution and being a Christian. I was raised in a secular environment and evolution was fact I thought… Oh, but there was a deep theological issue that I had not thought about yet. After years of prayer, research, reading all sides and theories. Simple, the bible had to be trusted, not with blind faith but a faith that is rooted in what we can observe. AIG gives Christians answers. We give AIG our highest recommendation. (more…)
Amos37 has followed this ministry longer than any other. The Berean Call with Dave Hunt and T. A. McHahon have been at the front and sometimes decades ahead of issues confronting the Church. These watchmen have raised issues on the various forms of occult invasion that have crept into the Church. Today it is all to apparent Dave & Tom have seen the enemey at a distance that has corrupted the Church at nearly every level in Dave’s 1985 “The Seduction of Christianity”. Today many are beginning a movement of Bereans who are serious about testing the spirits like the Bereans of Acts 17:11. Short Bio’s News letters, and podcasts are all available. We highly recommend this ministry. (more…)
I just heard of Justin Peters about a year ago and I have tried to listen to as much as this man has to say on the dangers of “Word of Faith” Theology. Why bother? some may contend. Simple. This is about some very basic doctrine that cannot be overlooked. Justin looks at the damnable doctrines of little gods, origins and lots of audio clips that confirm these doctrines of devils. The seminar which Peters’ teaches is entitled A Call for Discernment. A Call for Discernment is a biblical critique of the Word of Faith movement, more commonly referred to as the Health and Wealth, Name It and Claim It, or, the Prosperity Gospel. (more…)
Amos37 just loves this ministry. Evolution being taught in the world is one thing, but to have Churches wholesale buy into evolution is compromise and treason against the revealed word of God. Institute for Creation Research (ICR) is an outstanding ministry dedicated to a biblical defense and has a staff of knowledgeable scientists. They have many resources for the laymen and for those who want to get a bit more technical. Various media and presentations to encourage you in the faith. We have all the evidence. Get to know it.

Here at Amos37 we have listened and have followed some of the Christian news that Chris Rosebrough has broken over the years. Chris runs multiple sites for apologetics and reports on various moves within the Christian Church. Well informed and funny he tackels many thorny issues that most won’t touch. Recent events have made Chris a target of the “good ole boy” mega Church club. A great resource for informative information on many troubling movements inside the Chruch. (more…)
We at Amos37 regularly see Sola Sisters at the front of many of the topics that are confronting the Church today. Both are former New Agers and occultism. We note also at Amos37 that following many of the popular teachers and the many errors that are creeping into many Churches. Through what I call “Marque Christianity”. This is troubling to many of us since bible study today for many is getting the latest popular book, author and reading what they have said. No, we must be like the Bereans of Acts 17:11 “.. and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Sola gets Amos37 highest rating. Check them out. (more…)
Here at Amos37 we have been following and reading the research done by the various contributors at Lighthouse Trails. Many times this excellent ministry has pointed out troubling mix of New Age, Mysticism, Social Justice and a host of other issues that are creeping into the Church and replacing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Lighthouse Trails has broken many of the stories on many of these issues. Lighthouse gets our highest rating and we recommend them as a safe resource for Christian ministry. You can find the banner on the right side of every page. (more…)
Here at Amos37 we have found Apprising Ministries a valuable resource for staying on the cutting edge on the revival of ancient herisies in it’s various modern forms. We give Apprising Ministries our Kosher ministry approval. You can find the banner link at the right hand side of every page. An excellent resource from a ministry the wolves hate.
This time in which we find ourselves is one of rapid change, revisionist history and so-called “postmodernism.” Is it any wonder that people wonder what to believe, and even who they can trust? Today faithful believers in Christ face more and more pressure to be “politically correct” — which in the end is simply a mask for relativism. And while the nature of God, and the beautiful simplicity of His Gospel remain the same, the cornucopia of attacks leveled at our Lord’s Church by the enemy are increasingly fierce and constantly changing.
