Kent Hovid’s answer is so good, I transcribed it. You’re welcome to print it out. All right, your question, “Where did God come from?” assumes that you’re thinking of the wrong, obviously displays that you’re thinking of the wrong God. Because the God of the Bible is not affected by … Continue reading →
My name is James Arendt but some people also know me as “James Japan.” The photos above are just a few of the thousands of kind Japanese people who have picked me up when traveling by hitchhiking. More about me. See also the site mission statement.
As one begins his search for Truth buried within the pages of Holy Writ, his humanity and finiteness abruptly comes into focus when confronted with the unfathomable depths of God’s wisdom. God revealed this truth to the prophet Isaiah when he said: “For as the heavens are higher than the … Continue reading →
Those who may be football enthusiasts will probably recall a famous Minnesota Viking whose name was Jim Marshall. While famous for many feats, his most memorable feat was accomplished in 1964 when he ran for a 66 yard safety, the wrong way! In life, we need to make sure that … Continue reading →
Dear reader, For years I have used inexpensive web hosting for my websites. It’s called “shared hosting”. I am paying about $70.00 US per year for this website. But unfortunately, this site crashes often. People often come to the site and they see the framework but no content! The home … Continue reading →
To many, the God of the Old Testament appears to be vengeful and cruel. This has been the accusation of the atheist and agnostic. Even many Christians can’t seem to reconcile the goodness of God (which they have experienced in their hearts) to that which they have read in the … Continue reading →
Approximately three months after Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead, Jesus and the disciples went to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, Martha, and Mary. This was the beginning of the Passion Week, the last week of Jesus’ life leading up to the crucifixion. As the news spread of Jesus’ … Continue reading →
Most “prophecy teachers” today place the battle of Gog and Magog just before, or at the very beginning, of the Tribulation Period. Others, however, have the battle of Armageddon first and the battle of Gog and Magog as the final conflict. Of course, being the contrarian that I am, I … Continue reading →
I thought this was funny and hope you do too. George W. Bush really did say these things in speeches! See: http://www.snopes.com/politics/bush/piehigher.asp Make the Pie Higher by George W. Bush I think we all agree, the past is over. This is still a dangerous world. It’s a world of madmen … Continue reading →
By Jim Gibson The book of Hebrews has language that seems to be very “Pauline.” Because of this, I once believed that the apostle Paul must have been the author of this important New Testament document. I’ve since changed my opinion on this based on the following verses: “How shall … Continue reading →
By Jim Gibson In the third chapter of Genesis, we read how that mankind had sinned against their Creator. Was this a surprise to God? Of course not. God knew before the beginning of His creation that man would fall from his state of innocence. However, God had a plan … Continue reading →
Comments from the webmaster: In my opinion this is one of the most insightful commentaries of the Book of Revelation I have ever read! There may be points that the reader will find disagreement with, but considering all the other numerous interpretations of the Book of Revelation that I have … Continue reading →
By Jim Gibson. “Go west, young man, go west” was the popularized clarion call in the mid to late 1800s as America continued her westward expansion in fulfilling her manifest destiny. In approximately 1980 B.C., the great patriarch Abraham (Abram) received a similar commission from God to leave his native … Continue reading →
by Jim Gibson The second coming of Jesus has fascinated and inspired Christians for almost two thousand years. That great Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul, referred to this momentous event as the “blessed hope” in Titus 2:13. After showing himself to his disciples for forty days after his resurrection, Jesus … Continue reading →

He is considered to be the father of modern Dispensationalism and Futurism (“the Rapture” in the English vernacular). … Continue reading →
I am blessed to have a friend who is a scientist, a university professor, and a Bible believing Christian, a brother in Jesus Christ who I can trust! His name is John Gideon Hartnett. On the evening of July 26, 2016, I read a post on Facebook warning of the … Continue reading →
It was on December 13th, 2014, after 40 some years of study of eschatology, that I finally realized the 70th Week of Daniel is not part of the Endtime scenario! I am talking about Daniel 9:24-27 and especially the interpretation of verse 27. Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon … Continue reading →
The text is from chapter 28 of Charles Chiniquy’s book, “Fifty Years in the Church of Rome“. If you don’t know who Charles Chiniquy is, I hope you learn about him for I highly regard him as a type of Martin Luther of North America. More about Charles Chiniquy. The … Continue reading →

Daniel chapter 2 is an amazing prophecy of the history of the world from the time of Daniel and the kingdom of Babylon to this present day. King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream which he cannot interpret and cannot even remember, but God shows both the dream and the interpretation to … Continue reading →
by Jeremy James C S Lewis is well known among born-again Christians as a ‘Christian’ writer, someone whose inclusive religious viewpoint is of particular relevance to the world we live in today. I would hope to show that this perception of Lewis is not only gravely mistaken but that it … Continue reading →
I hope to point you to books written by good and God fearing men and women, authors who have done much investigative research in order to discern truth from the lies fed to the world today by the power elite. The purpose is to give you an education you will hardly find anywhere else. Knowledge is power! The Bible in Hosea 4:6a says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: If you want to study about the New World Order conspiracy, don’t just watch Youtube videos about it, read some books! “What books?” you ask? You can start with the list of books on this website.
I recommend 16th to 19th century authors and a couple of early 20th century authors such as Jeremiah J. Crowley and L. H. Lehmann. Their books contain the real history of the author’s day, and not mere school textbook history which is often biased by the educators who wrote it. For example, on this site you can learn the facts about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, and who really was behind it based on testimonials of people who actually knew Lincoln face to face such as Charles Chiniquy who wrote ““Fifty Years in the Church of Rome” which is on another website I linked to. There is only one fairly recent book I recommend which was published in 1999, “Rulers of Evil” by F. Tupper Saussy. He correctly identifies the problem and what to do about it.
What I am doing now
Last year in 2016 I hitchhiked to various parts of Japan, specifically to Aomori Prefecture, the Kanto area (Tokyo, Saitama, Tochigi and Chiba), Nagano Prefecture and the Kansai area (Osaka & Kobe) to work on various job to earn money to support myself and pay for the hosting of this website. As I sit next to the driver who picked me up, I share with him or her the Gospel of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike North Americans or the average native English speaker, most of the Japanese people have never heard it even once in their lives.
This year in 2017, except for a trip to the Osaka area, I’ve been home in Niigata city recovering from an prostrate gland affliction and working on my other website, Deep Truths. I am hoping and praying 2017 will be a year of new beginnings for me and greater fruitfulness for God’s Kingdom. I may leave leave Niigata which has been my home since 2002 to go to greener pastures and have more opportunities to share the Gospel with the Japanese. From February 2nd., I began working on translation of a tract from English to Japanese. You can read the tract from this link.
