Psychological Ramifications of Prophesy

By Jesse Wanskasmith Are you a Christian who has heard about End Times? Great, you are at least at stage 1! This article will help you understand what many Christian are feeling around you, and why some are concerned for the times we live in. This understanding is suited for the understanding that we are living in a period of time referred to by Christ as the buds on the fig tree; that we are the last generation before the second coming of Jesus Christ. Luke 21:29 Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. 30 When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near. 31 In the same way, when you see all these things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near. Rev 1:3 God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and...

New Report Finds Suspicious Data Tampering To NOAA Climate Change Data

  By MCN Staff Writer A new report from Real Climate Science has found the report of a 1.5-degree increase in U.S. average temperatures since 1880 to be as a result of data manipulation, not being generally reported. A report from Climate Central by Brian Kahn reported that the “U.S. Has been overwhelmingly hot” in 2016. NASA and NOAA also called 2016 “the hottest year on record” in a January 2017 report. According to Tony Heller of Real Climate Science, 2016 ranked 80th in term of ‘hot days’ since 1895 with only 4.4 percent of days being ‘hot days’ as compared to the long-term average of 4.9 percent. Heller also claims that NOAA data represented by the National Centers for Environmental Information is “fake data,” and that the measured data versus the reported data has been adjusted to create a 1.5-degree increase in temperatures, when one does not exist in...

Missoula Church of Christ Welcomes New Pastor Rance Schumacher

By Rance Schumacher Missoula Church of Christ “Thanks, but I’m not going to be a preacher” were the words Rance Schumacher used 12 years ago when encouraged by his home congregation in Texas to pursue a career in ministry. “I wanted to be an active member in a congregation, but to be a preacher was never on my radar,” says Rance now. So what changed his mind? In 2007, his roommate invited him to go to Zambia to partake in a 10-week long summer internship under long-time missionary Brian Davis. Everything changed that summer. After witnessing how the gospel could change so much in a person’s life, Rance was hooked. “I saw hope in the midst of poverty; healing in the midst of pain; freedom in the eyes of those held captive by paganism. When you see grace working that powerfully day after day after day, you can’t get that...

A Message from An Interfaith Youth

By Gina Satterfield I received the following message (copied in its entirety) from Bliss Collins after he read my posts on my Facebook page. I did call out Wilmot on using the race card against the People of Montana to bring in refugee resettlement. I pulled the curtain back to fully expose his United Nations connection and propaganda. Dear Gina, My name is Bliss Collins. AKA the son of your “made up” worst nightmare. I have been paying close attention to you, as you’ve been making it very clear that you have hatred for a man that you do not seem to know. My father a proud member of the United States military, a sponsor and supporter of big brothers big sisters, a proud member of the Methodist church in Helena and a member of so many other organizations thriving to make our community a better place is NOT GOING...

Evangelical Minister Builder of Noah’s Ark calls on Christians to ‘Take Back the Rainbow’

Staff Reporter, MCN An evangelical minister from Kentucky decorated a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark with the colors of the rainbow as a way to urge his fellow Christians to reclaim it from the gay rights movement. Ken Ham says the biblical purpose of the rainbow was a covenant between God and Noah and his decedents. Ham addressed the issue in his, “Answers in Genesis” website, stating, ‘The sign of this covenant was the rainbow.’ “Even today the rainbow represents the ‘everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth’,” said Ham. To the LGBT movement, the colors mean pride and love. “Sadly, people ignore what God intended the rainbow to represent and proudly wave rainbow-colored flags in defiance of God’s command and design for marriage,” he wrote, “Because of this, many Christians shy away from using the rainbow colors.” The Ark Encounter,...

Call him by his Name YAHWAY, Y’hovah

By Jesse Wanskasmith Exodus 15:3 (NLT) The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is his name! Footnotes: 15:3 Yahweh is a transliteration of the proper name YHWH that is sometimes rendered “Jehovah”; in this translation it is usually rendered “the Lord” (note the use of small capitals). As we enter this appointed time, we as Christians need to update our understanding of what we call Jesus, God, The Christ, IAM, HaShem, or Adonai the name he told us to call him, in what remains a contentious debate, YHWH. Unfortunately, due to some missing information on how to pronounce this combination of four letters spelled Yod-Hey-Waw-Hey, the proper pronunciation remains a mystery. The English transliteration comes out as “Y-H-W-H.” It appears 6,828 times in the Hebrew text and you have read it countless times without realizing it has been replaced with titles rather than YHWH. Judaism and Christianity have largely prohibited the...

Germany Institutes “Fake” News Filtering to Facebook

Staff Reporter, MCN The German government has implemented a news filtering service to all Facebook posts viewed or posted within Germany. The new service acts to “protect Germany’s democratic process against manipulation,” said a senior lawmaker of Merkel’s CDU party. As reported by the Financial Times: German users of the social network will now be able to report a story as fake and it will be sent to Correctiv, a third-party fact checker. If the fact checker discovers it is fake, the story will be flagged as “disputed”, with an explanation. Disputed stories will not be prioritized by the news feed algorithm and people will receive a warning if they decide to share it. Earlier, the German government put forward a proposal to fine any social media outlet up to 500,000 euros ($522,000) per day when they declare any news story published “fake”. In the bill, public and private complaints...

Simply teaching the Word of God! That’s what they do at Calvary Chapel of Cascade County.

By Pastor David Saenz Yes, Calvary Chapel has begun a new work in the City of Great Falls. Nearly 25 years ago Pastor David Saenz and his wife raised their family in Great Falls. After nearly a decade, and having planted Calvary Chapel of Great Falls, they returned to California due to personal reasons. However with a desire to always return back to Great Falls, and with the timing of various events and doors that began to lead them back, it was evident that God was calling them back to Great Falls for ministry. The work that God had begun 25 years ago with Pastor David was to begin right where he left off, “simply teaching the Word of God.” During the month of August, Calvary Chapel of Cascade County began services on Sunday mornings, meeting at 525 1st Ave North. As with a typical worship service, they begin with...
