This ancient well holds huge significance—especially for those who think they’re too small to serve God in a great way…

‘The Prophetic Feasts of Israel’ (Jacob Cohen)
Even Israel’s feasts pointed to the Messiah’s coming—both His first and second. A speculative revelation—and He even used food. A powerful message from ‘rabbi’ Jacob Cohen.

“Until Yesterday” (Pastor Jim Milne)
Yet another great message by Pastor Jim Milne, from Ecclesiastes 4:4 & Matthew 4:4. Enjoy.
“Where Will You Be at the End of the World?”
In one little verse Daniel summarizes the fate of the world, the origin of the Rapture and the whole reason Believers believe. Sadly, this greatest end-times event is often preached in whispers and received with rolled eyes, even though it’s the shining jewell of the salvation message. Don’t miss this one—you’ll be blessed—and moved.
Prophecy Update 2022 PART 2: “Prophecy’s Most Neglected Warning”
PART 2 of a hard-hitting study on End-Times Prophecy’s most neglected warning. For the not-easily offended…
“Reasons for the Wrath” (Daniel 12, PART 2)
The Great Tribulation is coming—but why? Is it because God is a mean, angry God, or does humanity actually deserve it? The answer is clear—and it’s shockingly wonderful. (Daniel 12:1-3, PART 2)
“The Great Tribulation: The Worst Days of Planet Earth” (Daniel 12, Part 1)
The Great Tribulation is coming—the most terrible days the world will ever endure are on the way. But why? And what about those destined to endure the horrors—some of them God’s very own people? What is God thinking? So glad He told Daniel…!
“Tomorrow’s News: What Moves You?”
A powerful study of Daniel’s prophecy of the Great Tribulation at the world’s end. But why did God reveal this to humanity? For us to be informed? Or is it for a much greater purpose? (Daniel 11, PART 4)
“Tomorrow’s News: The Devil’s Endgame”
God gave Daniel a glimpse of the “times of the end”, to be passed along to the Jewish people, and eventually to us. It’s among the most vivid and frightening pictures of the coming antichrist’s devastating impact on our future world—with the price of nonchalance too terrible ignore. (Daniel 11, PART 3)
“Tomorrow’s News: Israel and the Antichrist” (Daniel 11, PART 2)
Of the 135 prophesies in Daniel 11, most were precisely fulfilled over 2100 years ago. But a few remain—by far the most chilling—reserved for the end of history as we know it. Why did God revealed these events? The answer is electrifying—and a blessing. (Part 2)
“A Look Back at Tomorrow’s News” (Daniel 11, PART 1)
God revealed a 135 precise predictions to Daniel that came to pass over 2000 years ago—still, hundreds of years after Daniel’s lifetime. Certainly among the most spectacular prophecies in the Bible—and the most telling. Why God revealed these events is even more interesting—and inspiring. (Part 1)
“Spiritual War and the Fate of America” (Daniel 10, PART 2)
What’s happening in America—in the world for that matter— is far more than a culture war—it’s the symptom of a dangerous conflict between holy angels and the demons of hell fought in another dimension of reality—happening now—happening all around us. The question is, what can be done about it? This message is riveting study that unmasks perhaps the church’s greatest strength—and weakness.
“Daniel, Jacob and Jesus: Wrestling Match with God” (Daniel 10, PART 1)
Who was “The Man” who visited Daniel after being detained by “The Prince of Persia” for three weeks? How could the devil restrain such an overwhelming, formidable being so that they even required an archangel’s help to escape? The answers will surprise you—and might even change your relationship with God Himself…
(Correction: Jay’s reference to “Matthew 7” should be “Matthew 17”)
“Keeping an Intimate Relationship With God” (Bob Clark)
Another great message from Bob Clark that begs the question, why are you still a Christian? From 1 John 1:9, may you be more blessed than you ever knew…
“The 70 Weeks of Daniel: The Supreme Victory” (Daniel 9, PART 4)
What were those mysterious ‘sevens’ spoken of by the angel Gabriel to Daniel? In fact, they’re not difficult at all—and they reveal wonders, both tremendous and terrifying. And they weren’t only for Daniel or the Jewish people, but a warning for everyone at the world’s end…
“The Archangel and the Prophet” (Daniel 9, PART 3)
The angel Gabriel interrupted Daniel while he was praying and told him things both grim and glorious. Gabriel began with the glory—revealing not only what the end of the world would be like, but what follows—and even what happens after after that. Glorious, simply glorious…

What can Christians learn about God from 9/11? Why did He allow that act of terror—and what do we do with His challenging answer? Another great message from Pastor/Chaplain Jim Milne.
“Daniel and the Sins of a Nation” (Daniel 9, PART 2)
Israel’s Exile to Babylon was ending, but many of the people were still ignoring God. When Daniel intervened and prayed on their behalf, it was a game-changer for Israel, for Daniel and for all people everywhere. That means you, too—listen carefully…
“The 70 Years of Daniel” (Daniel 9, PART 1)
What provoked God to exile His people to Babylon for 70 years? Daniel, Jeremiah and Moses knew—and it’s the key that opens the door to one of the most stunning Messianic End-Times prophecies in all of Scripture. Stay Tuned…
“Specter of the Antichrist” (Daniel 8, PART 2)
(PART 2) Before Jesus returns, the Bible says the Antichrist will ravage the world. But the Bible also tells us what he’s like in specific terms—that he’s a master deceiver and that God doesn’t want the world—or the Jewish people—to confuse this ‘Beast’ with His Son. And Daniel’s visions are the key… (Includes Afghanistan-in-Prophecy update)
“Anger—Without Sinning” (Ephesians 4:26-27)
Paul told the Ephesian church ‘when you get angry, don’t sin’ — but is ‘righteous indignation’ possible, even in God’s eyes—or is it simply a myth? If you ever get angry, this message is for you…
“Shadow of the Antichrist” (Daniel 8, PART 1)
Before Jesus returns, the Antichrist will afflict the world—the Bible says so. But the Bible also tells us what he’s like in specific terms—that he’s a master deceiver and that God doesn’t want the world—or the Jewish people—to confuse this ‘Beast’ with His Son. And Daniel’s visions are the key…
“God and Monsters: Destruction of the 4th Beast” PART 3
To understand the Book of Revelation, the Antichrist and the Return of Jesus Christ, you need to understand the Book of Daniel. This message is a thrill-ride through the most terrifying parts of the end of the world. Fasten your seatbelts…!
“God and Monsters: What is The Son of Man?” PART 2
Why did Jesus refer to himself as the “Son of Man”? Daniel tells us—and the Gospels and Jesus shine in a whole new light. Why is this important? It points to the judgment of the Antichrist by the True Christ. (Daniel 7, Part 2) [Edited]
