Bob Ulrich: Blood Moons Are Almost Here!

By on March 27, 2014

Blood MoonsHas there ever been a prophetic event that packs the punch of the current Blood Moon phenomenon? Perhaps the rebirth of Israel in 1948? I wasn’t alive then, but I’m sure there were a lot of excited Christians who understood this historic prophetic moment. What about 1967, when Israel captured the Temple Mount in the Six-Day War? Edgar Whisenant’s blockbuster date-setting book, 88 Reasons Why Jesus Will Return in 1988, was a big event—as was its highly anticipated sequel, 89 Reasons Why Jesus Will Return in 1989! How about the War in the Gulf in 1991? Perhaps Y2K in the year 2000? Any other suggestions?

Mark Biltz spent a day with us recently and we were stunned when he told us how much attention his six-year old discovery is getting. CNN, Glenn Beck, Coast To Coast, Daystar, TBN and just about every Christian ministry with an audience is ringing his phone off the hook! The Blood Moons officially start this Passover, just two short weeks after our Orlando Prophecy Summit, where Mark will present his latest findings on this spectacular subject. And there is A LOT of new information he shared with us just recently on the Shemittah Year and its connection to a soon-coming financial collapse. Some of his new information is chilling.

Why all the fuss? Will this be another no-show? An over-hyped event that will be another major flame out? Or will the Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015 actually be critical indicators of events soon to come? War? Rapture? Tribulation? Financial collapse? Terror? Inquiring minds want to know!

I have a great memory of our ministry’s founder, J. R. Church. In fact, it’s a memory I’ll never forget. Neither will Mark Biltz. Most people don’t know it, but PITN kicked off the Blood Moon phenomenon when we interviewed Mark 6 years ago. Anyone who has followed our ministry over the years knows how much J. R. enjoyed studying the Gospel in the Stars. He was one of the world’s leading experts when it came to examining the astronomical signs in the heavens (not astrology!) and interpreting God’s message. His teachings on the subject remain in place on our website to this day.

In 2008, a friend of mine from Washington, Dana Hicks, sent me a copy of his pastor’s teaching on these astronomical anomalies. Yes, his pastor’s name was Mark Biltz. The DVDs were shot with a hand held camera—the first time they’d recorded anything on video in Mark’s church. The presentations were casually filmed and a bit shaky to watch but the content was nothing short of breathtaking!

I immediately passed them on to J.R. Church— then, early one morning my cell phone rang at 7:00 AM. It was J.R. with my wake up call. I can still hear the deep, stern voice that said, “Bob have you watched these DVDs you gave me?” For a second I thought I was in trouble! Then J.R. said “This is the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen!” A short pause followed and then that famous Texas accent wistfully said, “ I just wish I’d discovered it first!”

Well, J.R. didn’t make the discovery, but he was instrumental in launching this into the stratosphere. Joseph Farah from WorldNetDaily saw the interview J.R. did with Mark and decided to remake his Feasts of the Lord DVD series and produce it professionally. The rest as they say is history. Blood Moon Fever is now sweeping the globe and with good reason. Mark has now traveled all over the world sharing this important find.

If you’re not familiar with Mark’s research, you should be. To put it in layman’s terms, there are a series of solar and lunar eclipses coming to Israel in 2014 and 2015. But the really incredible part is the fact that they each fall on Jewish Feast Days! This is an uncommon occurrence and surely can’t be a mere coincidence. It’s happened in the past on some incredibly important dates in Israel’s history—1492, 1948 and 1967! Recognize those dates? What does God have in store for us? Is Mark setting a date for a major event? No, absolutely not. He’s not sure anything will happen on these Feast Days, but it certainly could! Or, it could be a warning of things to come.

WND has once again taken the lead. They have just published Mark’s new book and DVD on the subject—BLOOD MOONS—professionally produced and quite exciting. I hope you will get a copy of both, along with Marks’ new 2014/2015 Official Blood Moon calendar.

More importantly, Mark will be speaking LIVE from the Orlando Prophecy Summit on March 28th. Many of you will be there to hear this in person! Maybe you have already registered for the Live Streaming of the conference and you’re anxious to hear his message on Friday night at 8:00 EST. But if you haven’t, there is still time to register and watch all 16 messages coming from the main auditorium. Stearman, Biltz, Cahn, Missler, Marzulli, Koenig, Woodward, Salus— many of the biggest names in Bible prophecy will take the stage that night and you can be part of it. You won’t want to miss Mark’s main message— Blood Moons—Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs. Invite some friends over and watch it together! What a witnessing opportunity!

Go to our Live Streaming page on our site take a look at the titles of the 16 messages being aired from the main auditorium. One after another, they are just spectacular. $50.00 gets you a LIVE feed from Orlando, right to your home computer. And you have a full 30 days from the day the conference ends to watch all 16 messages as many times as you like. AND, you can deduct the $50.00 LIVE STREAMING fee from the full set of conference DVDs! Everyone wins! The big day is almost here. Can you feel it in your bones? Perhaps God will move on Israel’s behalf very soon. Yes, we are living in the last days!

Bob Reviews the Ancient Alien Package

By on March 1, 2014

Ancient Alien PackageFox Mulder would be proud. In the words of Doug Woodward, the truth is out there— somewhere. And yes, we all want to believe! Doug’s seventh book proved to be a great read, a roving tale full of history, mystery and conspiracy.

Was there life on Mars in the ancient past? Are there underground bases beneath the “Face on Mars?” Is NASA involved in history’s biggest cover-up? Have Russia and the USA been secretly involved in Martian space travel? Did Ronald Reagan accidentally spill the beans? What about movies like Cowboys and Aliens, Independence Day, Prometheus, John Carter, Contact and Total Recall? Are they Hollywood movies, or are these real-life events projected on the big screen? Is our government complicit in hiding relics of an ancient Martian civilization? Will there be “official disclosure” soon? How is our President involved in the Martian cover- up? Yes, Lying Wonders of the Red Planet: Exposing the Lie of Ancient Aliens is the X-Files injected with truth serum!

Most of us are familiar with the History channel’s popular science fiction program, Ancient Aliens. It’s this program that caused L.A. Marzulli to launch his popular Watchers Series, seeking to set the record straight. Ancient Aliens espouses a theory that the human race was genetically manipulated by extraterrestrials. We are nothing more than their ancient handiwork! Panspermia! Life began on other planets and we are the seedlings!

Woodward believes in an ancient Universe, but a relatively young, restored Earth. He teaches that there was a cataclysm in the ancient past, likely around the time the anointed cherub, Lucifer, was cast out of heaven. Where did he and his fallen angelic companions land? Was Mars one of their ancient outposts? If that idea isn’t fascinating enough, look up Psalm 89:10. “Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that I slain; thou has scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.” Huh? Who is Rahab?

According to Doug’s investigative research and the work of David Flynn, civilization may have actually begun on the now extinct planet Rahab! Flynn believed that Rahab was destroyed supernaturally by a massive, not-of-this-world plasma discharge. The debris from Rahab’s destruction was cast into the Martian atmosphere, creating massive craters on the planet that make the Grand Canyon’s look like ant hills.

Is this why NASA seems obsessed with the planet? Why spend billions of dollars scouring Mars with rovers, microphones and high-definition cameras? What are they looking and listening for? Woodward reveals many unknown and fascinating facts about NASA and Russia’s mysterious missions to Mars. Men like Richard Hoagland believe there are identifiable structures on Mars – a Sphinx, pyramids and city walls. Hoagland found the “Face on Mars” fascinating and pursued this peculiar anomaly with great vigor. The Face was discovered via a photograph sent from the Viking 1 spacecraft. Cries of a Photoshopped NASA cover-up still linger, with an entire chapter of the book dedicated to “photo fights.” Tens of thousands of high-definition photos have been taken over 5 decades, yet all we have is a grainy picture of what some believe is an altar to Lucifer!

Woodward reveals the secrets of Nikola Tesla and Guglielmo Marconi, two geniuses who appear to have had connections to the “other side.” Both inventors claimed encounters with intelligent life on Mars through wireless communications.

Then there’s Jack Parsons, founder of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Parsons was into the “Dark Arts,” and sought to conjure up the Whore of Babylon. Many believe he succeeded, opening a stargate portal that allowed UFOs to enter our dimension, right around the time of the Roswell incident. Coincidence? Parsons was investigated by the Collins Elite, a top-secret Defense Department group who concluded that he had allowed demonic entities into the world, extraterrestrials, who planned to replace human beings with hybrids!

Woodward takes us down the fascinating road of remote viewing, a place where the governments of the world would pay people with psychic powers $1,000 a day to view Mars through their mind’s eye! Wormholes, anti-gravity machines, inter-dimensional stargates—oh my! Then there are the sophisticated jump rooms that whisk the occupants of an intergalactic sled from El Sugundo, California (Doug gives the street address!) straight to Mars in a scene right out of Total Recall! Even Disneyland has extraterrestrial roots! Walt Disney was obsessed with Mars and he built his theme park right over the Ley lines that cross King Arthur’s Castle! Who produced the John Carter movie about a man transported to Mars? Disney! Then Doug reaches for the incredulous, uncovering a comic book from the 1950s with a cover story entitled, The Face on Mars! Did someone know this Face would be discovered?

Woodward postulates a scenario where the lie of 2 Thessalonians 2 comes to pass. The Bible says the lie is so believable that “if it were possible,” even the elect would be deceived. What if an enormous spaceship landed on earth? Greetings Earthlings. Their advanced technology would be quite convincing to the masses. They’d tell everyone they were the ones who seeded the planet many eons ago. Now, they’ve returned to save us from impending nuclear destruction. They may offer us the secrets of immortality, sharing a piece of their DNA with us—fallen angel DNA that provides immortality, newfound strength, brain capacity and the power to be “as Gods.” Where do we sign up?

Of course we know this will result in the Mark of the Beast— an eternity separated from God. This may be the great deception, thousands of years in the making.

Buy Doug’s book and get the education of a lifetime. The truth is in here! Purchase the Ancient Aliens Package and get the book and a powerful DVD, Transforming Humanity, documenting how Satan plans to re-make mankind in his image. AND Doug’s bonus DVDs from Pike’s Peak! AND a special bonus DVD from Mark Biltz on the soon coming Blood Moons! Wow, what an offer! Many believe that Mars is close to yielding it’s greatest secrets. The world may be in for quite a shock very soon. All I can say is, “Beam me up Jesus!”

Bob’s Review of Beast Tech by Tom Horn and Terry Cook

By on February 1, 2014

Beast TechNo number gets people’s attention like the soul-chilling number 666. The Mark of the Beast concept is well known to Christians and unbelievers alike and has taken on a life of its own. The day is quickly coming when people will allow the Antichrist to inject them with a permanent mark and subsequently declare their loyalty to him. What is the trigger event that launches the mark and sends people down this highway to hell? Worldwide financial collapse? An alien appearance? The rapture? A major nuclear event?

There’s a hot debate going on in Christendom. Some Bible teachers believe that if you find yourself in the Tribulation, and you take the Mark of the Beast, you can still be saved! Hmm. Is this biblical ignorance or is human emotion clouding the meaning of Revelation 14:9-11? Surely a loving God wouldn’t condemn a starving family for taking an invisible tattoo, would He?

Revelation 13:16-18 says: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three-score and six.”

Prophecy students have watched intently as technology has run wild. We see the signs. We hear the rumors. We know that Big Brother’s Beast technology is in the final stages of development and implementation. But is it possible that a plan is in place to “microchip” all of humanity by 2017 for identification purposes?

Enter Tom Horn and Terry Cook, respected experts on implant technology and transhumanism. Together, they’ve collaborated on an eye-opening book, Beast Tech: Is the Mark of the New World Order Secretly Under Development? While we instinctively knew these things were on the drawing board, I don’t think people understand how advanced these programs really are. Enter Beast Tech, your guidebook to an event some might call “Future Shock.”

John McTernan’s incredible foreword to the book set the stage for one shocking revelation after another. The facts are just chilling! Are you aware that IBM is now working on a worldwide system that will track every product sold in the entire world—trillions of products! Do you know the intimate details on the Utah Data Center, a massive, $2 billion data collection facility that will record the details of our lives in one central location? Yes, some people are already calling it The Beast! What is UN Resolution 666 all about? What about the Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-12)? How about the Real ID Act, already approved by 20 states? What will this do for Americans and how will these relatively unknown directives be used by the New World Order?

There are new biochips that can upload information directly into your brain. One day you may learn French in your sleep and be fluent by morning! Or suddenly realize you know how to play the violin! There is even new technology that can transmit a voice directly into your brain! Imagine walking by a store and hearing a strange voice inside your head letting you know that the new jacket you’ve been admiring on Amazon is now on sale. Ridiculous? Think again. The data mining that’s been gathered for years is being used to appeal to our desires and it’s being quickly interconnected by the industry giants.

Where will the knowledge explosion end? Google Glass, ingested diagnostic cameras, GPS technology, digital pills, RFID bracelets, personal anti-kidnapping Lo-Jacks, DNA tracking robots that cruise through your body looking for diseases, retina scans, blood vessel scanning, nanotechnology, brain mapping, cloning body parts … is anything beyond mankind’s reach?

The day is coming when you won’t be able to fly on an airplane, or open a bank account without an official National ID Card. Nor will you be able to secure a job. Is “show me your papers” ringing in your ears? The threat of Islamic terror has changed our world and our personal privacy is being undermined, from TSA airport searches; to illegal snooping of our personal records; to technology that can now see through the walls of our home; secretly watch us right through our television screens and read our emails, tweets, and Facebook posts. You do know the funding source for Facebook don’t you? I’d highly recommend listening to Derek Gilbert’s Chicago Prophecy Conference DVD set (page 28) and his message—Facebook and the Antichrist. It will have you thinking twice before posting your personal information for public consumption.

Remember the Human Genome Project? Supposedly, it cost $3.8 billion and generated $786 billion. Next is the Human Brain Project, a 10-year project that will map the workings of God’s miraculous supercomputer. Mind reading may soon be child’s play and removing bad memories from the human database will be a non-memorable experience. Alzheimer’s and epilepsy may be cured. The cerebral curtain will be lifted and mankind will be the fortunate benefactor. Of course one of the BRAIN Project’s chief funding sources is DARPA, the military wing of the government! Should we be surprised? Super soldiers!

As if this incredible book isn’t enough, Tom has included two FREE bonus DVDs. The Secret Vatican & Alien Antichrist Connection was recorded recently at the Strategic Perspectives Conference. The Vatican appears to be awaiting an alien visitation, straight out of Exo-Vaticana. Will this be the trigger event that changes the world?

Then there’s Tom’s three-hour interview with the passionate and well-informed Steve Quayle, named appropriately as Trigger Event: Setting the Stage For the Mark of the Beast. Will a worldwide financial collapse or nuclear war be the trigger event?

The Brave New World of Genetics is here and our personal freedoms are quickly disappearing. There will be nowhere for unbelievers to hide during the Tribulation. Fortunately, Big Brother doesn’t scare our Heavenly Father. Put this important book into the hands of the people you love the most.

Bob Reviews Watchers 7 and Further Evidence

By on December 29, 2013

watchers7ufo-pkgI have never seen a UFO in real life. There was a time when I may have felt “left out” of all the otherworldly excitement some have experienced, but after spending several hours engrossed in L.A. Marzulli and Richard Shaw’s eerie new book and DVD, I’m kind of glad these entities head off in another direction when they see me! Believe me, I’m no Gary Stearman!

Watchers 7, the latest in the spectacular seven-volume Watchers DVD Series has arrived and it’s chock full of sensational and rare video footage. It’s joined by a companion book, Further Evidence of Close Encounters, an engaging read that had me flipping through the pages like one of the “Hardy Boy” mysteries of my youth, eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

The book is loaded with personal UFO encounters—the victims actually get to tell us their strange and remarkably consistent stories! Get the book and you can also read about Gary Stearman’s 40-year old UFO encounter for yourself. It’s the biggest reason I believe in these “identifiable” flying objects. The new Watchers 7 DVD is 83 minutes in length and loaded with one-on-one interviews with prominent theologians, abduction victims, world-renowned UFO experts and of course familiar faces like Gary Stearman, Chuck Missler, Cris Putnam, Stan Deyo and the now infamous implant-removal physician, Dr. Roger Leir.

Dr. David Jacobs, former professor at Temple University in Philadelphia, entertained L.A. and Richard at his home where he shared his 30+ years of abduction encounters and hypnotic regression experiences from well over 1,000 victims. Dr. Jacobs is a well-respected expert on the abduction experience and he goes into laborious detail about what takes place when these encounters occur. The paralyzing moments in time that most victims describe include a systematic and thorough physical examination. Many are reproductive in nature and very disturbing, leading Jacobs to surmise that there is a hybrid-breeding program taking place.

These nefarious activities are not being conducted in secret. There are missing person police reports, frantic family searches and in many cases, implants left behind in the victims as physical evidence! Who can deny what is transpiring? A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Dr. Leir brings the hard evidence to the table, shooting and displaying one-of-a-kind photographs of an alien craft in Turkey with a high-powered camera lens. The evidence? How about the three occupants of the craft?

Speaking of credibility, Gary Stearman shares his wisdom on the UFO movement, a big part of his life since his initial UFO encounter as a young pilot. His perspective is clearly a spiritual one, but also a historical one, dating America’s initial contact with alien entities back to the late 40s-early 50s. Gary has written extensively on Operation Majestic 12 and the advanced technology that many believe we received from these demonic entities. The price we paid? Perhaps limited access to mankind via the alien abduction ritual.

One of the best interviews was conducted with Mexico’s leading UFO researcher, Jaime Maussan, the host of the longest-running UFO television series in the world. It seems that Mexican officials are nowhere near as closed-minded and frightened as US officials when it comes to UFOs. Maussan’s program is one of Mexico’s most popular programs and when you see some of the incredible UFO film footage he unveils, you’ll understand why. It’s groundbreaking stuff, never seen here in America.

He has crystal clear photographs of UFO activity—rabid activity in the skies flying in and out of formation at lightning speed, disc shaped craft flying in and out of volcanoes— clearly operating in plain sight. Russian UFOs. Chinese UFOs. Titanium space ball mysteries. Handprints that glow in the dark under UV light. Flying saucers, cigar shaped UFOs, glowing orbs and triangles—what we see here is just the tip of the iceberg.

Just wait until you hear some of the shocking and unexpected comments that came out of the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure, like this quote by the Honorable Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former Minister of National Defense. “He said, “UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly overhead.” Or former Alaska Senator, Mike Gravel, who said, “We have a space force in existence and it has been written about extensively.” A space force? You’ll need to go back to the words of George H.W. Bush in June of 2001 to discover our government’s plans to build a military base on the moon! Son of Star Wars! For what purpose? And what does 9/11 have to do with it?

Does our President know about the alien presence? According to Stephen Bassett, Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group, he likely does. Bassett claims that one of Obama’s advisors was transition appointee, John Podesta, the most frequent visitor to the Obama White House in the first 90 days of the administration. Podesta, an acknowledged X-Files buff, was a key advisor to the Clinton’s (WH Chief of Staff) and the one who encouraged full disclosure of UFO files and records in 2002 and 2003.

Thousands of recognized sightings a month can’t all be wrong—many from commercial pilots, military pilots and trained aircraft observers. Something is happening with greater frequency than ever before.

The Watchers 7 DVD and Future Evidence of Close Encounters book are a great complement to each other. The book goes into much greater detail and contains lots of bonus material—plus, it includes over 50 photographs, many in living color and several from Jaime Maussan’s private UFO collection. The author’s have also included multiple first-hand accounts from real UFO victims, many sharing their story publicly for the first time.

Marzulli and Shaw are not looking to sensationalize something already sensational enough. They recognize that “full disclosure” is almost here. Will an alien appearance explain away the rapture? Will it offer a logical but flawed explanation as to our origins? Will these supernatural signs and wonders usher in the Antichrist? Get the inside scoop for yourself in these lengthy “field manuals” on the strange and the supernatural.



Watchers 7


Bob Reviews: The War On Christmas

By on December 1, 2013

The War On ChristmasMerry Christmas! There—I said it. No Happy Holidays. No Merry X-Mas. No Season’s Greetings. In just a few short weeks “the most wonderful time of the year” will be here, so let me say it clearly—I love the Christmas season and I believe that the “Christmas spirit” is inside all of us—God- ordained. Not the unsaved world’s version of Christmas of course—materialism and the like, but the knowledge that the Savior of the world was born to offer us a marvelous plan of redemption.

I love Christmas family traditions and plan to put a beautiful, God-made wreath on my front door. Our family will be decorating a God-made evergreen tree in our family room and we’ll enjoy trimming the tree together with old Christmas memories and new ones. I’ll be shopping for unique gifts for the special people in my life and I’ll enjoy the smiles on their faces when they open them and then share their Christmas gifts with me.

Now I’m sure there are a few readers who will disagree with my perspective. Bob, don’t you know you’re celebrating a pagan holiday with those ancient pagan traditions? Haven’t you read the OT verse that talks about making an idol from a tree and decorating it? How does exchanging gifts celebrate the true meaning of Christmas? And that Santa Claus guy? He’s turned Godly parents into a bunch of deceivers. C’mon, just transpose the letters in his name. Santa actually is just another way to spell Satan!

Truthfully, I never paid much attention to these anti-Christmas sentiments. But some time ago a couple of ministry friends began to take a hostile approach towards Christmas and began to use Christmas (and Easter) celebrations to highlight the failures of the church, insinuating some sort of pagan infiltration. I was made to feel almost spiritually rebellious, accused of embracing “sacred cows.”

So, when Bodie Hodge’s new book appeared on my desk, The War on Christmas, I was eager to get to the bottom of this dilemma. Was I celebrating something that offends the Lord? When I stand up on Christmas morning to sing Silent Night, or on Easter Sunday morning to sing Christ the Lord is Risen Today, is Satan standing up fist-pumping his demons shouting, “they’re celebrating my special day!” Hardly. I think he knows his fate and hates the fact that churches are filled with Christians on these special days, praising the Lord for His glorious birth and resurrection.

If the angels praised God in the heavens at Christ’s birth, likely singing and shouting for joy, that’s good enough for me. Why wouldn’t we want to join in, celebrating the most important birthday in world history? After all, history is His-Story and the Holiday season should rightfully be called the Holy- Day season!

The truth is, there are many misconceptions and half-truths in the Christmas debate. The War on Christmas is going to take you through these controversial issues in 23 fascinating chapters. Everywhere we turn there’s another blind-sided attack on this special day—Happy Holidays greetings— advertising signs promoting Xmas—even the elimination of Christ-based Christmas carols in favor of Winter Wonderland, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Even public nativity scenes are becoming off limits!

Why so anxious to take Christ out of Christmas? Of course the answer is obvious. Removing Christ from Christmas and watching it evolve into the secular day of materialism it has now become for many is another notch in Satan’s belt. He loves to take the events that bring joy to the Lord and turn them into something completely different.

Not only is he winning the battle with the lost, he’s convinced many Christians that this is a day with Satanic overtones! Seriously? Celebrating Christmas is wrong? Having one day out of the year where we turn our focus to the birth of the Savior is wrong? Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not condoning the world’s convoluted version of Christmas, the crass materialism, frantic spending sprees, drunken office parties and such . . . but having a day set aside to focus on the birth of Christ? Count me in.

Bodie is going to take you places you’ve likely never been before, clearing up many popular misconceptions. I saw a TV commercial yesterday claiming that the virgin birth was a biblical mis-translation! The author covers that subject from a manuscript perspective and weaves the complicated lives of Mary and Joseph into this supernatural event. Then he addresses in some detail the whole “pagan tradition” conundrum, sure to get your attention as he dismisses these historical arguments with the facts as he sees them. Was Jesus born on December 25th? Doubtful. But does it really matter?

The Star of Bethlehem makes the author’s list as well. Was it a “triple conjunction” of the planets, or was it a once-in-a-lifetime miracle from God? How about Santa Claus? Is he secretly a dyslexic Satan, or was he a historical figure, St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, a wealthy man who made it his life’s mission to give to the less fortunate in the 4th century?

Bodie delves into the critically important nature of the biblical genealogies, giving us the reason why Jesus was the offspring of the Holy Spirit and Mary, and not Joseph. He shares the whole story of the “Wise Men” and the popular misconception that they attended the birth of Christ. Then he uses recent archaeological discoveries to decipher the phrase “there was no room at the inn.” The stable and the manger may not meet our preconceived notions of that eventful night.

Where did the name Christ-mas come from anyway? Does it have Catholic traditions since it contains the word “mas?” Hardly. The word mas actually means “celebration.” A Christ-centered celebration seems to fit the bill perfectly. That’s what Christmas should be for us—a day to praise God for the gift of His Son.

The War On Christmas
