Chinese officials reportedly demolished a Christian church on Tuesday, detonating bombs to bring down the house of worship.
ChinaAid, an organization that monitors Christian persecution, reported that the Golden Lampstand Church in Linfen, China, is “serially persecuted” and noted that the unregistered church was privately paid for by its members for just over $2.6 million.
The organization is speculating that the order to destroy the church came from China’s top officials, seeing as military police have been under the government’s command since last year. Officials placed bombs beneath the structure to bring it down…. more
Understanding the Times 2017 Conference speaker Dr. Mark Hitchcock teaches that a prominent “sign of the time” is the raging apostasy in our seminaries and churches today. He gives examples of this and encourages believers to not give up.
Jan Markell and Eric Barger talk to Dr. Ron Rhodes about his last book, “End-Times Super Trends: A Political, Economic, and Cultural Forecast of the Near-Term Prophetic Future.” Their discussion covers the reasons people will see the message of the last days as gloom and doom.
We have been told by a church that we teach doom and gloom. This is how L.W.H.M. started online bringing you bible studies, sermons, bible teaching, and news that lines up with the bible.

I will not use pronouns or any verbiage which may be called politically incorrect when I am referring to the heads of these so-called churches in Sweden.
I will refer to them as what they truly are: HERETICS and LIARS. I am sorry if I have offended any of my readers, but unfortunately “truth” is the new hate speech.
The gender neutral crowd are simply modern day feminists and homosexuals. Satan has brought them into “churches” to confront, confuse and corrupt the Word of God.
I am sick to death of those who would claim to belong to our Lord Jesus, yet hate His Word. I am also sick to death of the so-called “Social Gospel.”… read more
Three of the 26 victims in Sunday’s mass church shooting in Texas were a mother and two of her young daughters, though the woman’s two other children reportedly survived only because she sacrificed her life for them, a family friend has said.
Vonda Smith, a close friend of slain mother Joann Ward, told Fox News in an interview on Wednesday that she spoke with 9-year-old Rihanna, one of Ward’s children that survived the shooting at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs.
“The first thing she told me was that the reason she didn’t get shot like everybody else was because her momma threw her on the ground and told her to hide,” Smith said.
“As soon as she threw her on the ground, she scooped up her other three that were sitting next to her in a pew — Ryland, who’s 5, and Brooke, who’s 5, and Emily, who’s 7 — and she immediately covered them with her body. And that’s exactly how Rihanna described it.”…. read more
Joe and Claryce Holcombe lost nine family members during Sunday’s horrific mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, but, despite the unimaginable carnage, the couple are remaining firm and resolute in their Christian faith.
The extent of the impact that the event had on the Holcombe family is both staggering and unfathomable, as the elderly couple lost their son, Bryan Holcombe, and his wife, Karla, in addition to their grandson, Marc Daniel Holcombe, as well as his baby daughter — and their great-granddaughter — Noah.
They also lost Crystal Holcombe, the wife of their grandson, John Holcombe, three of their great-grandchildren — Emily, Megan and Greg — and the unborn baby Crystal was carrying, who was reportedly due to be born in April; John Holcombe and two additional children survived.
But despite that immensely painful situation, Joe Holcombe, 86, told Faithwire that he and his wife “are very close to God” and have not wavered in their faith as a result of Sunday’s traumatic events….. read more
The author of confusion and the father of lies, continues to work in the minds of people all over the world. The mind is the devil’s battlefield and playground. He does not have to yell. The thoughts which he puts into the minds of people – especially church going people – are subtle and believable and sometimes nothing more than a whisper.
Perhaps he whispers this:
“Certainly you have done many more good deeds than you have bad deeds. God is looking for those who care greatly about their fellow man. This is enough to get you into heaven. Don’t listen to those who would bring you down and call you a sinner. You are righteous in the eyes of God – He sees your good works.”
This is the “Social Gospel.”… read more
China’s Communist Party-controlled government long has tried to stamp out faith.
It has banned churches unless they are affiliated with the government, imprisoned pastors and lay leaders, and discriminated against church goers.
Lately, government officials have removed crosses from church buildings.
Now, according to UCA News, at least four regional governments in China are banning children from church.
The governments have issued notices that “restrict children from joining Christian groups and attending religious activities,” the report said.
Children are being turned away from church, even if they show up with parents…. read more
