|Israel and Judah: 33. Isaiah and the Death of Ahaz
- December 2018
Ahaz of Judah, one of the most evil kings of Judah, continues his 16-year reign. Ahaz and Judah have survived the onslaught of the armies of Syria and Israel, but the Kingdom of Judah is badly damaged. The Assyrians enter the picture as noted in the last episode "Israel and Judah: 32. Jotham and Ahaz of Judah." Yet YHWH has chosen Ahaz to receive a most important prophecy. True to form, he rejects wanting to learn about the prophecy and then offends YHWH even more.

|Geography, A Prime Prophetic Truth
- January 2018
This article concerns a very important prophetic indication, one which is not only neglected by most prophetic interpreters today, it seems to be avoided altogether. That subject involves what could be called ?rophetic geography.?That is, where will end-time events take place, and to whom. To what peoples will those end-time prophecies pertain? Many people are confused about this subject. It is no wonder they are confused over prophetic teachings today when this basic prophetic truth is not comprehended by the majority of prophetic teachers. http://www.askelm.com/newsletter/l201801.PDF
