A case of spontaneous human combustion in 2013 in Oklahoma

A man in Oklahoma died in a fire. His neighbors saw smoke and thought the man’s trash had caught fire, so they went into his house to check it out. Instead of trash, they saw that he was on fire. There was no other damage in his house. There is no apparent source of flame. Continue reading

Schizophrenia or Possession?

Michael Schofield and his daughter, January

Fox News recently ran an article about a girl who, by age 3, was precocious and disturbed. As the article says, “her parents had to keep her visually stimulated around the clock just to keep the screaming at bay. As she grew older, the Schofields noticed their daughter was also brilliant. By 3 years old, she could read and calculate multiplication and division in her head.”

THE CUNNING WORK OF SATAN’S HOST OF FALLEN ANGELS

Christianity holds to a linear concept of time. It has three distinct parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. In the beginning, God created the cosmos. At the end He will directly intervene in history and bring forth His final judgment (harvest the wheat, burn the tares).

This poses a problem to Satan, his host of fallen angels, and his children (John 8:43-47). They fear the end of time when they will be forever cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:10-15) Continue reading

OF ANGELS AND DEMONS

The Bible testifies throughout of the existence of angels and demons.
