Exodus 12:22 22Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning.

The Hebrew word for basin (caph) referred to a drainage trough at the base of the entrance that prevented rain from entering and muddying the home. That is why it is sometimes translated as "threshold." Follow the Israelite head of his home as he takes a specific type of branch, hyssop, and marks the top and sides of the door from the base. What did he just do? He's made a bloody cross above the door to his house.

Now travel back in time over a thousand years to a hill right outside a Jerusalem gate. There is a man who is bleeding from his feet, head, and hands. Jesus is dying for you so that the Destroyer will not take your life. A Roman soldier reaches for a branch with a sponge attached to wet Jesus' lips (John 19:29). What type of tree is that? Hyssop!

Let's fast forward to now, two millennia later. Night has fallen on the earth, and the world is in darkness, but there is light in the Lord's house. The morning is approaching. A new day will shortly break, but you should stay inside till then (the fellowship of believers). The Destroyer is on the loose, and anyone who isn't behind the cross of blood is fair game. "There is life in Him (Jesus), and the life is the light of men."

Consider this: the message hasn't changed in thousands of years. My soul is safe behind the bloody cross that was shed for me.

The Great Tribulation

It is our belief that the Great Tribulation referred to in the New Testament Book of Revelation (chapters 6-11) is unfolding before our eyes. In the near future, we will devote the "Tribulation" tab on our "Trending" menu to this emerging reality. As people continue to unplug from mainstream media, our commitment is to present the truth and encourage our audience to understand current events from a Biblical perspective.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
