Do you know what is going on behind the scenes of the new, improved, and better upgrades for the technology toys. The excitement can hardly be contained when the new whatever comes out. But when you know the bigger picture and you treasure your privacy, then you would RUN the other way.
Technology has picked up greatly since the 1900’s and God is allowing technology to blossom. Usurping God has been tried before by man in the Old Testament with the attempt to build “The Tower of Babel”. God put an end to their plan by causing them to speak different languages and scattering them abroad. It wasn’t the right time for it but now it is. Below is a basic time-line of how the ability to watch and listen to us was invented. These inventions have a purpose… more
The rebirth of the nation of Israel is unique among all the nations in history. Starting around 600 BC, the nation was totally destroyed, not once but twice. Amazingly, after each destruction, it came back into existence. Not only was the nation destroyed twice, but each time nearly all of the people were taken captive into foreign countries. Yet they returned to the land. All this points to the uniqueness of Israel. This nation is not like the others because it is based on an everlasting covenant with God!
In 586 BCE, the great Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, totally destroyed the nation, government, Jerusalem and the temple.

It has risen to become the flag-bearer of the global jihad with a barbaric, medieval ideology that casts a shadow over 21st century borders. But how did we get to this point?
The group’s roots lie in the U.S. occupation of Iraq from 2003 onwards, when Jordanian extremist and ISIS’s spiritual founder Abu Musab Zarqawi pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda, transforming his al-Tawhid wal-Jihad group into Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).
Two years later, a U.S. air strike killed Zarqawi and the group is rebranded as the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI), bringing together Zarqawi’s Al-Qaeda faction with other radical groups. Zarqawi was replaced by Abu Omar al-Baghdadi while Egyptian extremist Abu Ayyub al-Masri became the group’s military commander….. [Read More & Watch Video]
