Prayers and Supplications - June 1, 2019

This month? article by Dr. Ernest Martin is titled ?he Essentials of Prayer?and it is intro?uced by the ?une 2019 Newsletter?which gives background information about prayer. In Scripture, the term "prayer" is often linked with the term "supplication." The two terms are used together 16 times in the Old Testament and 6 times in the New Testament. Nearing the end of his life, the apostle Paul wrote a personal letter to his fellow-laborer Timothy. Paul gives four reasons to approach God. They are discussed in this Commentary.
 
Paul's Baptism - May 15, 2019

The apostle Paul was baptized after his encounter with the risen Christ on the road to Damascus. Was he an apostle in the same way as other apostles, especially the original 12 apostles? Read "Paul's Baptism."
 
God's Revelation of Himself - May 1, 2019

A great increase in knowledge, particularly in Israel, will occur before the end times, followed by Christ's return. This increase in knowledge will be worldwide. YHWH, the Creator, will reveal himself in the details of His creation. It will compel the "wise" of the world to acknowledge that YHWH exists, and that He should be obeyed. The world will learn, for a short time, to obey their God and His Messiah. Hopefully, this will happen sooner rather than later.
 
In Israel May 2019 - April 16, 2019

This Commentary requests your prayers (as always), encouragements (thank you), of all who support Dr. Martin's research of the Gihon location for the Temples in Jerusalem, and the location of the crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ directly east of that location on the Mount of Olives in and above the village of Silwan.
 
Forced Exile - April 1, 2019

Events surrounding the forced exile of the kingdom of Israel by the Assyrian army are the subject of this month's article, "Israel and Judah: 34. Death of the Kingdom of Israel." I encourage you to read the "April 2019 Newsletter" before you read the article.
 
Will the Next Temple Be Legitimate - March 17, 2019

To both questions the answer is: (1) Yes, the next Temple will be legitimate and (2) yes, it will be the Temple of the antichrist. The Herodian Temple was legitimate. So too, the next Temple will be legitimate also even though the antichrist will seize control and defile it.
 
Where My Story Began - March 1, 2019

I recently came across an advertisement for a sweatshirt on the internet that had a saying on it: "WAUWATOSA, WISCONSIN נITғ WHERE MY STORY BEGAN." Wauwatosa is a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I grew up. The shirt is not important, but I was struck by that phrase "itҳ where my story began." Each of us has a story. It began when you took your first breath at birth.
 
The Most Devastating Doctrine - February 13, 2019

"The Most Devastating Doctrine" tells about a central belief among multitudes of Christians that represents the most unbiblical belief in existence. Many believers are persuaded it is the supreme witness (to them and the world) that Christianity is true, yet it is one of the greatest tools of deception.
 
A Small Golden Bell - February 1, 2019

This month? article, "Response to Gihon Temple Objections," may disturb you. Critics are beginning to question the motives of those who believe different than they do about the location of the Jerusalem Temples above the Gihon Spring. Their outraged opinions of you are not flattering. If you disagree with them, you are not just wrong; you may be evil and should beware of disparaging God. Read the "February 2019 Newsletter" first. Also, archaeological finds in Jerusalem are often hyped up. In 2011, a small golden bell was discovered in a drainage tunnel just west of the City of David under the eastern slope of the Tyropoeon Valley. I discuss its significance
 
Speaking to Oneself - January 15, 2019

Whenever we talk to others, we are speaking to ourselves first. Whenever we write to others, we are writing to ourselves first. When an author writes a novel such as Leo Tolstoy in his massive War and Peace, the words he wrote were written to himself first. The same was true for Jane Austin when she wrote Pride and Prejudice. We speak to ourselves all the time.
 
What Is the Gospel? - January 1, 2019

The "January 2019 Newsletter" introduces two articles this month. The first is "Memory in Luke" and the second is "Further Decline in the Churches." Both relate to the gospel. Luke is compiled from collected oral and written testimony by eyewitnesses from before Jesus? birth through His resurrection. The reason the churches continue to decline is that the fullness of the gospel is not being preached and taught in churches, even though everyone think that is being done.
