As we enter this Christmas season when we celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace into our world, the international political climate of today is anything but peaceful. One of the great political tensions in our day is the growing tension surrounding the nation of Israel in the Middle East. Perhaps more than never it’s necessary for the Christian to learn how to examine this conflict through the lens of Bible prophecy. The fact of the matter is that the clouds of darkness that are now enveloping our world were long ago predicted in the pages of God’s prophetic Word. If you are seeking a greater biblical understanding of this vital issue, I trust you will enjoy my recent interview on “Stand Up For The Truth” radio related to the Middle East and Bible prophecy.

What would most likely get me the most accolades from my conservative friends is to write a blog piece criticizing this week’s Democratic National Convention. After all, we are routinely told by pseudo-conservatives that we all need to rally behind the Republican Nominee, unify the party, and defeat Hillary Clinton in November. She is the personification of all evil, as the new Dinesh D’Souza movie Hillary’s America appropriately and accurately argues. However, the Democrats and their predictably outrageous behavior this week is not the real story here. The Democrats kicked conservatism (and authentic Christianity for that matter) out of their party a long time ago. Criticizing the Democratic Party is too easy of a target. Finding a conservative Democrat today, such as the late Robert Casey or Zel Miller, is like trying to find an animal on the endangered species list. However, the real story here, for anybody who actually desires to see the evidence, is how the Republican Party, at least at the national level, is now also going very clearly in the direction of the Democratic Party in terms of purging and ostracizing conservatism from its ranks. In order to validate the statement, one need look no further than how the Republican Party treated Ted Cruz at last week’s Republican National Convention. When all the facts are considered, the Republican Party establishment last week engaged in nothing less than a true smear job against Ted Cruz.
