I love to share my faith with non-believers and seekers alike, who have questions about the Christian faith, what we believe and why we believe it. In light of the postmodern perspective that many people adhere to these day, I would like to give a biblical perspective as a contrast to those who say that there is no absolute truth. I believe that the truth can be found in God's word the Bible. http://media4lifeministries.com

Peace in the Middle East?
Why is it so difficult to archive peace in the Middle-East? Could it partly be because of wild donkey's like Ahmadinejad? He hates Israel and wants them to be wiped out from the face of the earth. He wishes nothing more than for the talks to fail. So much for a peaceful Islamic religion, there is nothing peaceful about radical Islam... and it's teachings, nor is the Koran a book of peace. Muhammad was a wild donkey, conquering by killing with the sword. Most people look at the world today from a human perspective or the human level, there is also a divine perspective a divine level. Most people would say, well it is just the way it is, but one day if we can make just a few changes, we can have worldwide peace. Nice dream. There is a spiritual war raging all around us, unseen with human natural eyes. There are Satanic forces that control certain areas in the world, Iran is one of them. In the book of Daniel, God gives us some indication's that there are in deed spiritual battles between the angels of heaven and the fallen demonic angels that once rebelled against God. Daniel prayed for help and guidance to understand the 70 weeks in the book of Jeremiah. He prayed for 3 weeks until Gabriel one of the Archangels finally came to him, saying that he was held up because of the prince of Persia, (Iran today) opposed him. The prince of Persia was not the physical human prince that was ruling Persia at that time, but the demonic force over Persia, and Gabriel went on to say that he had to go because the prince of Greece was coming. So, there is battle going on unseen to us a battle of good verse evil. Does evil exist? I'm sure of it and I think we all know that there are evil people in the world, Ahmadinejad is one of them, controlled by Satan and his demonic army. Israel is the center of the world and Jerusalem with the temple mount being the epicenter. Satan is doing his best to cause conflict after conflict trying to destroy the Jewish people, the temple mount is the most holiest place on earth, the temple of David build by Solomon was there and Jesus was crucified there on the very same spot where God had asked Abraham to offer up Issac. Jesus sacrificed His life there for us by spilling His blood as the acceptable offering, the unblemished lamb of God, just as God told Abraham, "I will provide a sacrifice". This is much more than just humans not getting along, it is spiritual war and Satan knows his time is running out, he has tried throughout history to destroy the Jewish people, Haman, Herod, and many others including Hitler, demonically controlled by Satan and his forces. Just as he tried a to wipe out the Jews, so is he coming after the true believers, the bride, he wants nothing more than for us the believers, to fail. He has penetrated the church from the beginning, infiltrating from the inside.
So if you read the newspapers watch the news and see all the stuff that is going on around the world today, think off it as a spiritual battle and we are right in the midst of it. Let us not look with human natural eyes but spiritual once, God has given us His Spirit and we see things for what they really are: a battle of of heavenly proportions. Let us put on the armor of God.
"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:11-13
