Recent prophecy books and speakers have highlighted the Bible’s prediction of the destruction of Damascus mentioned in Isaiah 17.

How should we fight anxiety?

By John Ankerberg Show Staff / December 13, 2018

There are many reasons we can think of that contribute to growing rates of anxiety. The news. Social media. Global economies. The brokenness we see in the world.

By John Ankerberg Show Staff / August 25, 2018

Today’s politically correct culture encourages us to accept all views and beliefs as equally valid. However, the Bible clearly teaches there are many areas where right and wrong is not a matter of opinion. We are instead commanded to speak God’s truth.

Yet many have questions regarding the best way to proceed in this area. How can we speak God’s truth in love?

According to Daniel 9:27, “and he [referring to the Antichrist] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”—literally for one seven. Now, there is an interesting implication of this. Many have thought that the event which will actually start the seven-year Tribulation period—or if you want to call it the seven-year 70th week of Daniel 9 that we’re reading about here—that the event that will actually start that will be the Rapture of the Church.
