NEW YORK — Act after act hit the stage at Madison Square Garden on Friday for TobyMac's "This is Not a Test" tour. Artists Hollyn, Colton Dixon, Britt Nicole were on the bill along with TobyMac and his diverse city band. The 51-year-old hiphop/pop star used his platform to share his stance on the current racial and religious issues affecting the world.
Before TobyMac hit the stage in between one of the earlier sets, his drummer, B.Haley from the Diverse City band took to the stage with a powerful 10-minute presentation for a new movement calling for unity of every race and denomination under the banner of Christ.
Mac and his crew are a multi-racial bunch, hence the name Diverse City. It was apparent that B.Haley's movement, called We Are 1, is fully backed by Mac since Haley spoke freely and confidently to the crowd. During his passionate speech Haley explained to everyone in the sold-out theater that the purpose of We Are 1 is to Love, Unite and Build a community of one body. more >>
Jesus Christ is coming soon.
That's not the message of a religious tract or televangelist.
It's a warning from former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann who has called for an intensified effort to convert Jews to Christianity in time for the return of Christ. more >>
Thousands of Evangelical Christians from over 80 countries reportedly flocked to Jerusalem this week for the Feast of Tabernacles to show support for Israel, and anticipate biblical prophecy centered on the eventual return of Jesus Christ.
"The Bible says, the Word of the Lord will go out of Jerusalem to the ends of the Earth," said International Christian Embassy Jerusalem Director Juha Ketola. "Today the ends of the Earth are coming back to bless the Jewish people!"
The Associates Press reported that the summit, based on the ancient biblical festival, reached its apex on Thursday with the Jerusalem Parade. The Feast of Tabernacles is the Christian term for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, which is marked by a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. more >>
As Tamar Braxton promotes her upcoming fourth album, Calling All Lovers, the singer is warning people to get ready for the End Times following Sunday's total lunar eclipse, also known as the blood moon.
While a number of people simply snapped and shared photos of the blood moon, others, such as Braxton, questioned if the event foreshadows biblical revelations.
In continuing with her trend of End Times theorizing, former Republican Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann opined over the weekend that thanks to Planned Parenthood and the legalization of gay marriage, God may soon engulf the United States with fire and brimstone just like he did the biblical towns of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Bachmann, who is a frequent guest on the "Understanding the Times with Jan Markell" radio program, was again a guest to the program last weekend and reasoned that given Iran's desire for "nuclear destruction" and the social direction of America, the apocalyptic "season is approaching."
The 59-year-old criticized pastors throughout the country for not educating their congregants about the biblical significance of the days in which we are living in, suggesting that "no one is fighting back against Barack Obama's dangerous policies" that are "pointing America in severe decline." more >>
Televangelist Jim Bakker has warned viewers of his program "The Jim Bakker Show," that they'll be forced to eat human flesh during the fast-approaching End Times unless they buy his food buckets.
"The Bible says they're going to eat their arms, the Bible says they're going to eat their babies, then it says they're going to eat their children. That's what people do when they get hungry," said Bakker.
"When you're huddled in a corner with your grandbaby and they're screaming and crying and there's no food — I don't want that blood on my hands." more >>
