A Post Entitled Watch Damascus
If you are a follower of @AnchorHolds on Twitter, then you may have seen the news articles concerning possible rumblings in Syria.
There are so many hot spots throughout the world it’s almost dizzying to keep up with. However, if I were to encourage you to watch a certain place in the world for clues as to the Lord’s timetable for ushering in the begining of End Things, it would be Damascus.
Isaiah 17:1 is enough to make our ears perk up when the world rattles sabers in the direction of Syria. In this verse, the Lord declares that Damascus will be a heap of ruins. This is followed by recounting future promises of bringing Israel low, which to any student of History will agree, is a discussion of future events.
The reason this must be speaking of future events is the fact Damascus is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world; more than 5,000 years. So, it is quite significant when the Word of God states that the city will be a heap of ruin followed by a ruining of Israel. These events may be that catalysts for beginning of sorrows.
It is possible, however, that all this talk about war could be some of the “wars and rumors of wars” found in Matthew 24. In which case, “don’t fret, the end is not yet…” #TshirtIdea
Watch Damascus. This is gunna get little bit rowdy.
Woke up with this song in my heart.
Good Wednesday, all.
A Post Entitled Abortion’s Next Level of Evil…
Some who read this blog may be what is popularly called “Pro-Choice”. Many of you are Pro-Life. TheAnchorHolds likes to always error on the side of life no matter the issue, but that’s a discussion for another post…
I found an article that displays the fact that when you popularize and culturally allow one form of evil, it will never stop. It’s the whole If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Principle. One compromise leads to another, which leads to another until you have walked down a path much, much further than you ever thought you would possibly tread.
I don’t really care on what side of the fence you are are on in regards to the Abortion issue, that is wholesale evil. Pretty much makes me sick.
A Post Entitled Where has TheAnchorHolds been?…
….been cookin’ stuff up in the lab.
SO many projects started, in the works, various levels of completion. All good things.
However, some of the focus of this blog will be shifting slightly. I have been finding that news and information that would be worth following and keeping track of is coming at break-neck-speed. Commentary in a long form blog post is not possible.
For the three or four people who actually read this blog, there will be a shift to include more and more links using the Twitter feed. Go to Twitter and start following @AnchorHolds and you should start receiving links to articles, video, podcasts, and such that may not impact you in the immediate, but will. Perhaps sooner than you think.
The disclaimer: not all links posted express the views or opinions of TheAnchorHolds. So, use your discernment. Though if I have to remind you to use discernment when dealing with the media, then perhaps you do not have enough of it to be following the @AnchoHolds. #playingwithfire #tongueincheek
Again, sorry for the absence, but I will hopefully be able to announce some exciting things that will be coming soon in the coming months. Some of you will be really excited about it and it could possibly change your lives. For others of you, you won’t really care in the slightest.
A Post Entitled One Down, One More to Go…
There was great deal of hub-bub surrounding Harold Camping’s calculation of the Rapture on May 21, 2011. (For the AnchorHolds Official Rant see this post) There was far too much publicity of a severely under-supported view. Once his true research was actually flushed out, by anyone who chose to actually check out his claims, there was very little research. It was mostly number and grammar gymnastics that would hardly be allowed in a high school debate competition let alone pass as “Eschatology.”
Well, we have one more doomsday prediction that will be here before we know it. Yup, I’m talking about the 2012 End-o-du-World. If you take some time, you will find way, way, way too many claims of proof and truth to this prediction. What is extremely sad, is that there is very little actual dissection of these claims.
Once the claims are actually evaluated and sources checked, any honest researcher will find that claims of the death of the world are greatly exaggerated. In fact, they are at best fabricated, at worse devised to deceive. But to what end? The Truth is so much stranger than fiction and whole lot worse than can be imagined.
So, in light of all this, TheAnchorHoldsBlog is going to be posting a series of in-depth research and articles written in connection with the 2012 Deception, as I am going to call the series (Not original, I know, but it will work as a search-able Tag.)
Just to give you a taste, here is your first site to check out. It is published by Dr. Michael Heiser, the Academic Editor at Logos, the little Bible Software company you may have heard of.
The site is in regards to “researcher” Zecharia Sitchin, and I use the quotes on purpose and I debated whether to even use the word to be honest. What is appalling is his writings are used as source material for so many other “researchers” without any double checking or linguistic critique.
Dr. Michael Heiser’s site is http://www.sitchiniswrong.com/, which sounds bold, I know. But with few minutes of perusing the site and you see the grand canyon size gaps in Sichin’s theories concerning Sumer, the Annunaki, and the lost planet Nibiru.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
