The bottom line is this: Whether you "believe it or not" - most prophecies outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation have already come true, and there are just a few more to go. According to the Scriptures, life on earth as we know it is about to come to an end - perhaps as soon as between 2017 to 2030. This is evidenced by the fact that Yeshua (Jesus) has so far fulfilled the first FOUR of the SEVEN Biblical Feasts - and the last three will be fulfilled almost simultaneously.

[Evil Bible: Handicapped people must not approach the altar. Leviticus 21:16-23]

As we keep saying: GOD (YHWH) is God and He can do whatever He wants; what He does is ALWAYS perfect; and He always has His reasons for doing the things He does. Since God is holy and perfect, He cannot be around imperfection. He cannot be around sin of any kind (that's why NONE of us gets to go to heaven without the Sin Sacrifice of Yeshua who atoned for our sin!)

We simply cannot comprehend God with our limited human mindsets. But, from the beginning He told us that He requires perfection in His Presence. He plainly told us that the offerings we present MUST be WITHOUT blemish. Therefore, it stands to reason that people with any kind of defect cannot approach the altar. It's an act of amazing grace that ANY man is allowed near His altar at all, because we are sin-filled by nature (thanks to Adam and Eve!)

[Evil Bible: Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!]

Have you done a study about how purple our faces turn? You keep making these unfounded, blanket accusations! Firstly, Allah is a demon god who expects YOU to die for HIM (while Yeshua is a God Who died for YOU!) and Islam is a religion started by a murdering, thieving, epileptic pedophile called Mohammed. Messianic Judaism began when God/YHWH came to earth in the form of a SINLESS man called Yeshua (which means "Salvation") who taught us about the things of God and then offered Himself as a Divine Sacrifice in order to afford wayward humans a place in heaven.

The Egyptian babies you speak of were not "slaughtered"; they simply died. YHWH ordered the death of all male firstborn in Egypt because of PHAROAH'S refusal to let God's Chosen People (the Jews) leave Egypt and their Egyptian bondage. If you'll remember, God gave Pharoah NINE OTHER CHANCES before hard-headed Pharoah finally got the picture that GOD was in charge! NINE CHANCES! Ask yourself this: If someone was holding your family captive, abusing them in various ways, and making them perform slave labor - how many chances would YOU give before finally "zapping" the perpetrator?

There is no truth whatsoever in the second half of the above paragraph: "If you examine secular societies in comparison to religious societies; secular societies will consistently have less crime, unemployment, corruption and more freedom, share of wealth and a higher standard of living." The Refiner's Fire CHALLENGES the author to prove that statement!

Look at the U.S. in general, at what has happened since 1962 since "God" and prayer were removed from public schools and government buildings! Since then, things have become more secular, worse, and that is a proven fact! Do a Google search and you'll see the U.S. has the highest level of teenage drug abuse in any industrialized nation as well as the highest divorce rate. We are the world's largest manufacturer of beer and the third greatest consumer of alcohol per capita. The U.S. has some of the world's most liberal abortion laws, despite the many "pro-life" protests. Furthermore, organized, public prayer in our schools is against the law, but yet our children's textbooks honor Buddha and Mohammed! Magazines that would make the proverbial sailor blush appear on our grocery check-out lines for our children to see! Many American states have annual "gay" parades, and "gays" are now fighting for the right to marry - and our own President supports their cause!

"One nation under God"? Perhaps at one time, but not anymore.

Some atheist websites want to play word games with the concept of "atheism" and about what they do or don't believe. But simply put, atheists are people who don't believe in God. The entire Internet teems with the ideas and views of atheists who want the world to know that anyone who believes in a Deity is basically "superstitious and irrational".

The questions we, at The Refiner's Fire, would like to pose are as follows:

Why is it that atheists celebrate Christmas and Easter since both of these holidays are to honor Yeshua (Jesus)? Why are most Americans (including the atheists) going into debt to buy "Christmas" presents? Why not totally ignore this holiday by going to work and carrying on, as usual? Don't you think it's a bit hypocritical to join in the festivities when you clearly abhor their very reason for being?

Why is it that atheists participate in Halloween, a pagan "holiday" that glorifies ghosts, witches, goblins, and grotesque creatures - and whose origins are steeped in the blood of human sacrifices?

Most of the Western World takes their "day of rest" on Saturdays and Sundays. As atheists, you should know that Saturday - the seventh day - is when Yahweh, our Creator - commanded us to rest!

Better yet, please explain why - if God and the Bible supposedly aren't real - have more than 300 Bible prophecies come true already? There are just a few more to go, and what's about to happen ain't gonna be pretty!

[Do you people even know what an atheist is? An atheist is someone who doesn't believe in God, simple as that!]

Most atheists are people who not only don't believe in God; they are people who don't like being told what to do, period. They view God as someone who is trying to infringe on their "right" to do whatever they wish - and they figure that, if they dimply "don't believe" that makes their belief true.
