If you are a student at the SouthWest Florida Bible Institute, and interested in taking the following course: “NT701 Two Tremendous Archaeological Discoveries” starting March 20, 2018, then you will want to watch the following cutting edge archaeological findings. Bob Cornuke is interviewed by Dr. Kevin Clarkson, president of Prophecy in the News, about his REVISED and UPDATED book “Temple.” The new book (just released days ago) can be purchased from KHouse and Chuck Missler, from Base Institute and Bob Cornuke, or from Prophecy In The News. The older book Temple is 207 pages. The new book you want to purchase is 239 pages – I received a copy of it today. Bob Cornuke is turning the field of Christian archaeology on its head, as he navigates through the plethora of 2,000 years of errors in tradition, and uses solely the Bible as his roadmap, pursuing the correct places of archaeological importance to the Christian. This book explores a new possible site for the temple, and Jesus’ exact place of crucifixion. If the location is correct, then the famed Islamic Dome of the Rock would not be in the way of building the temple! Bob Cornuke is highly respected in circles of famous people throughout the Middle East, and has combed the catacombs of passageways underneath Jerusalem with Benjamin Netanyahu. You will enjoy the following videos and his book Temple.
In Christ, Pastor Steve <><
Can you imagine the upheaval in political and religious thinking if the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is not the site of Solomon’s and Herod’s temples?
Since first published in 2014, Bob Cornuke’s ground-breaking book, TEMPLE, has been heralded as “an investigative masterpiece” with “astounding archaeological and prophetic implications.” We have already seen some “Bible scholars” publicly mock and try to refute him for his discoveries. Refusing to even debate him for fear that their lucrative careers will be tarnished, knowing all the while that the discoveries in this book has literally sent shockwaves through the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian worlds.
Bob has just released his NEW and updated version of this exciting book. Because there were so many negative untrue things being said about Bob’s discovery of the location of the Temple, Bob decided to add an appendix in the back of his new book to address these negative accusations. To be fair, he decided not to write the appendix, but to allow an outsider do the research and write this section of the book. That man is Dr. William P. Welty, who taught New Testament Greek for ten years at Simon Greenleaf University of Anaheim, California. Dr. Welty is a Bible scholar and executive director of the ISV Foundation. He was skeptical at first when Bob ask him to do the research, but when he finished, he called Bob and told him “There is no way that this is not the place of the Temple in the City of David.” His research is excellent!

Top Bible Prophecy Stories Of 2017
By Jan Markell/Olivetreeviews.org December 29, 2017
Pieces of the eschatological puzzle continue to manifest daily. Even signs that are primarily Tribulation events are casting a shadow today. As I perused news stories of the year, I selected 15 items that tell us time is short. The King is coming soon. Don’t ever doubt that.
1. Jerusalem became a greater “burdensome stone” with Donald Trump’s acknowledgement that this is truly Israel’s capital and holy city. See Zechariah 12:3. Greater controversy will surround her in the year ahead.
2. The Gog-Magog alliance went on fast-forward. Iran, Turkey, and Russia are uniting with a primary goal in mind — coming against Israel as foreshadowed in Ezekiel 38-39. Turkey’s Erdogan threatened to “wipe out all Jews” after the Jerusalem announcement.
3. A new false god came on the scene and many hailed its arrival. An ex-Google executive is founding a church where artificial intelligence will be worshiped. It’s called AI for short and keep your eyes on this in 2018.
4. The scoffing of eschatology went to a new level. Many said the announcement concerning Jerusalem was received well by many Christians only because it will hasten Christ’s return. Many who love prophecy have given up finding a church that will address this.
5. Tribulation Temple talk escalated after Donald Trump’s announcement concerning Jerusalem.
6. One salacious scandal followed another in 2017 revealing that man’s character now reflects the end-time warnings of Romans 1 and II Timothy 3.
7. Israel continued pounding targets in Syria foreshadowing the day when she will carry out the prophetic verse found in Isaiah 17:1 — the destruction of Damascus.
8. The idea of micro-chipping is now so accepted that one news outlet said people will soon be eager to be micro-chipped. It was suggested that we will eagerly line up like dogs for a chip.
9. As predicted, evil is waxing worse and worse (II Timothy 3:13). Pagan gods are appearing in many places including at the U.N. The occult is more appealing than ever and Millennials are “spellbound” by the paranormal.
10. Lawlessness is growing and the ‘spirit of Antichrist’ seems to be poured out on the earth in greater ways this past year. The Antifa movement is one illustration. George Soros is busier than ever in his waning years.
11. There has been an intensification of calling evil good (Isaiah 5:20). Islamic jihad proponent Linda Sarsour made threatening comments about President Trump yet almost became Time magazine’s “person of the year.” In the mind of the Left, Islam must be celebrated.
12. The world of technology has declared war on Christians and conservatives. Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and more, are pulling the plug or limiting righteous comments and ideology yet they often celebrate evil. This reached new levels in 2017.
13. The terms “peace and security” are used in the Bible in I Thessalonians 5:3. It is false peace and security. The term was used with greater intensity in the last year. Donald Trump has been heralded as the president who will bring Israel “peace and security.” On December 18, Fox News said President Trump would bring peace and security around the globe. The President stated that he “has laid a pathway to peace and security in our world.”
14. In spite of world turmoil, there is a greater “business-as-usual” atmosphere particularly in America. Since Donald Trump has been President, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has closed at record highs 82 times. The Bible suggests there will be such a comfortable time on earth when Christ returns in spite of the frequent “birth pangs” which have also been record-setting.
15. There is even more evidence that only Jesus ruling and reigning from Jerusalem will provide great government. It has become evident that mankind cannot drain a swamp filled with alligators and poisonous snakes! Washington is corrupt to the core because mankind’s heart is “desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9). Draining the swamp was a great campaign slogan but 2017 showed us that first man’s heart must be made new.
We can look at a list like this and focus on ” sighs of the times” rather than realize that they are ” signs of the times.” The pieces of the puzzle continue to fall into place. Nothing is falling apart but instead falling into place.
Because of the turmoil of our times, someone said that the future is not what it used to be. Not true. The future was foretold and is playing out with a precise script and a predictable end only because it is all outlined in scripture. We can watch it in high-definition color with surround sound and even in 3D. We have front row seats!
The King is coming, perhaps today.

Key The Following Link For Cutting Edge Updates Of Our Ever Changing World And Strides Made Towards The Coming New World Order:
The End Of British Christianity?
The End Of British Christianity?
By Giulio Meotti/Gatestone Institute December 27, 2017
British Christian publications have been wondering if we are witnessing the “extinction of Christianity in Egypt”, where the Christian faithful have suffered persecution and terror attacks at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists. Christian leaders also seem to be wondering if Christianity will be “extinct within a generation” in the UK, where religious people enjoy total freedom of worship and faith.
Last year, the Church of England began to formulate a religious revolution. Its canonical laws require that British churches hold their functions every Sunday. The dramatic crisis of Christianity in the UK, however, is pushing the Anglican church to rewrite those rules, in order not to officiate in empty and abandoned churches.
A quarter of the British rural parishes now have fewer than 10 regular members of the faithful on Sunday. There are no more children in 25% of the Church of England’s congregations, as new figures have just shown. On average, nine children attended each church service across all Anglican churches in 2016. Generally speaking, churchgoers have dwindled in the UK by 34,000 in just one year.
“Should we care that Britain’s lost its religion?”, Daniel Finkelstein asked in The Times. Yes. He suggests that nationalism might take its place, but what if, instead, its place is taken by another religion?
There is no need to be observant to understand the importance of a country’s cultural affiliation. If there were no mass immigration from countries with values antithetical to Western ones, the demise of Christianity would not be as potentially calamitous; society might simply become one of atheists and secularists.
Europe now, however, is experiencing a terminal decline for two reasons that are linked: mass unvetted immigration coupled with a shrinking confidence in its own legitimacy and beliefs. There seems to be shame over Western colonialism, yet no thought at all seems to be given to who are the real colonists: The Crusades were a reaction to a Muslim colonization of the Christian Byzantine Empire, North Africa, the Middle East, much of Eastern Europe, Northern Cyprus and Spain.
In Europe, the UK is now leading the same process. Britain is living through “the biggest religious transition since the Reformation of the 16th Century”, according to Linda Woodhead, professor of the sociology of religion at Lancaster University. In 2000, Anglicans were 30% of the population.
Half of them have disappeared in just seventeen years. The number of those who belong to the Church of England fell below 15%, including just 3% of English young people ages 18-24. Writing in the Spectator, Damian Thompson wondered if “the Church of England is dying”. Churchgoing dropped by 50% also in Scotland. Another report revealed that more than half the British population has no religion at all.
According to internal documents from the Church of England, Christianity is dying in Britain at such a pace that in the next three decades, Anglican congregations will halve again. Christians in the UK are on course to be in the minority by the middle of the century.
What defines Europe are its boundaries – not physical but cultural. Without its culture, Europe could not be distinguished from the rest of the world. And the pillar of this culture is based on the Judeo-Christian heritage and values.
The journalist Melanie Phillips stated that the Church of England, by embracing trendy ideological extravagances such as gender ideology, is now culturally “sowing the seeds of its destruction.” The goal of all this “inclusivity,” according to Phillips, is actually to “overthrow the Christian basis of the West”.
Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, has said that “political correctness” is bullying and undermining Christianity in the UK. “I cannot imagine any politician expressing concern that Britain should remain a Christian country; that reticence is a scandal and a disgrace to our history.”
According to a new poll, a total of 41% of British millennials, born between 1980 and 2000, said that the UK has “no specific religious identity”. As the progressive publication Prospect asked, “if we are no longer a Christian country, what are we?”. Former archbishops of Canterbury have warned that the UK will be soon unrecognizable. Rowan Williams has said that the UK is already “post-Christian”.
The existential crisis of the Church of England does not involve only the third Christian congregation in the world, represented by Anglicans. The crisis is also going to tear apart a source of the British landscape, politics and culture. Recently, The Spectator featured “The end of British Christianity” on its cover, where one elderly lady is seen as the only faithful in a cathedral.
“It’s often said,” the magazine continued, “that Britain’s church congregations are shrinking, but that doesn’t come close to expressing the scale of the disaster now facing Christianity in this country. If that rate of decline continues, the mission of St Augustine to the English, together with that of the Irish saints to the Scots, will come to an end in 2067”.
The level of atrophy in the Church of England is so extensive that Anglicanism is expected to collapse “for the next thirty years”. There are also rumors that “half of England’s Anglican cathedrals could close”.
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor said recently that in the UK, Christianity has been “nearly defeated”. If the Church of England disappears, there will be a totally different UK. The British historian Niall Ferguson has called it “the creeping Islamization of a decadent Christendom”.

This article represents the final installation of this prophecy conference. It was a lot of work to listen to every speaker, but what a blessing to finally complete this monumental task! If you read and peruse the 66 articles, you will glean the main topics and teachings from each and every instructor. In Christ, Pastor Steve
Dr. Kevin Clarkson ~ Interview / Hagmann & Hagmann, Followed By The Closing Ceremony
Pastors are shepherds but we are also sheep. We need to come apart and be fed also. Many pastors are there but they are not engaged. Some are angry or discouraged. The Bible says: “Strike the shepherd and the sheep scatter.” Pastors leave the ministry every week, and that leaves the sheep without a shepherd.
Pastors need to abide in Christ, through the Word and in prayer. The Spirit of God and the Word of God is an explosive and volatile combination. A lot of pastors get busy and sidetracked, and fail to get alone with God. The key to overcoming depression or burnout in ministry is to get with God and wait upon Him and you will mount up with the wings of eagles.
Dr. Kevin Clarkson stands on the shoulders of J.R. Church who founded Prophecy In The News decades ago. The feeling in this ministry is that time is short and we must be serious in light of what is going on in the world. Kevin’s vision is to pray for the persecuted church around the world. Americans have lived in a religious liberty bubble which is unique in all of history. The rest of the church throughout history has been hunted down, persecuted and martyred. America has been the exception and not the rule. Christians are being threatened in America as of late and we need to rise. We need to run for office, be a voice, and defend our freedoms. Bill Federer: “Our most important job is to preach the Gospel. Our second most important job is to defend our right to preach the Gospel.” Billy Graham use to say he had the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other hand. We must look at the Bible in the lens or prism of our time. Christ is coming. He could come before this broadcast is over.
Christians in America are being labeled as extremists. The human rights campaign is saying that sexual liberty is more important than religious liberty. Sexual liberty is making America go down. We are being set aside by the Lord because of our sin. China has passed us economically, and Russia has risen above us militarily, through the number of nuclear warheads they have. There seems to be a desire to make worship a private issue for people in America. The separation of church and state has been a misunderstood issue in our times. The idea behind it is to keep the government out of the church, and NOT to keep the church out of the government. We need to be strong with resolve and courage, and we also need to be gracious. We were founded as a Judaeo Christian nation. The church has been tax exempt, but with an 18 trillion dollar deficit and counting, our government will pursue every source of revenue they can find. Churches are a rich target. We must support Prophecy in the News. Winston Churchill saved the world when he refused to surrender in World War II, and Benjamin Netanyahu is a similar leader today. Bibi would like us to stand with him but even if we do not, Israel will never give in or surrender.
Kevin Clarkson stated that Western Civilization would fall to Islam in a matter of years if everything stays the same and the Lord does not return. It may be that the torch of Christianity has been passed to Africa and Asia, where they are already persecuted – they are a lot more serious about their faith. Everyday, over 8,000 people receive Christ in the underground church in China. The Chinese Christians want to march back to Jerusalem with the Gospel. This is the power of the Gospel and the Spirit of God. In America, we must lose our indifference and become on fire for the Lord. We need to get in our closet and pray. George Washington said in the Revolution: “Trust God to keep your powder dry.” Let us do all that is humanly possible, and trust God to do all that is divinely possible.
Dr. Kevin Clarkson thanked the audience for their hunger, thirst and zeal for the Lord. The United States is not going to stand with Israel now, and we are going to suffer for that. God will curse those who curse Israel. Israel may soon strike her enemies. Noah prepared for the flood. We need to prepare for the end times. Be HOT. Be HOLY. Be HOPEFUL. Be Spirit filled. Abide in the Lord and be close to Christ – be in the Word and be in prayer. Be HOLY. We do not want to be ashamed at His coming. Be HOPEFUL. Be looking for the blessed hope, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
An amazing feature of this prophecy conference was the spiritual oneness of the speakers. The Pre Tribulation Rapture was believed by all of them. They all recognized the errors of the emerging church. Their mutual spiritual discernment put them all on the same page. Interestingly, these men all came from totally different backgrounds and did not know one another in nearly every case. Their oneness is the oneness that all true saints who are born from above experience together. It is a God thing.
Maranatha, Pastor Steve
