Featured Location: Tel Megiddo
Tel Megiddo is located about 60 miles northeast of Jerusalem overlooking the Jezreel Valley. From this city you can see Mt. Gilboah, the Jordan Valley, Nazareth, and Mt. Carmel. This location has both historical and prophetic significance. At one time it was a strategic military location due to its trade routes that connected Egypt with Syria and Mesopotamia, which made this city a place of constant destruction. It was occupied by the Canaanites, Joshua, David, Solomon, and the northern Israelite kingdom. It was also here where Josiah died by the army of Pharaoh Necho II (2Kings 23:29). This location is also prophetically known as “Armageddon;” where the armies of the earth will stage for battle against Jerusalem. Revelation 16:13-16 states, “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working
miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of Yahweh Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” For more photos visit us on Facebook.
DTT Recordings with National Right to Life
This week we had in the studio Carol Tobias, the President of the National Right to Life Committee, the nation’s largest pro-life organization.

- Number of abortions here and abroad;
- Different stages of abortion;
- Evidence that Life begins in the womb;
- Impact of abortion;
- Reasons for abortion;
- Preventative measures;
- Responding to those who have had abortions;
- Benefits of pregnancy centers;
- Growing acceptance of the pro-life movement;
- War on women;
- History and current impact of Planned Parenthood.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Man is born with a divine spark, otherwise known as an immortal soul.
The concept of an immortal soul is foreign to Scripture. This belief was possibly first originated by the Egyptians. The word “soul” in the Bible generally refers to a person. When Scripture states that eight souls were saved by water, it’s referring to eight persons, 1Peter 3:20. We further explain this concept in the Restoration Study Bible, “soul – from the word nephesh, the same word as in Genesis 1:20′life,’ 1:21 as ‘creature,’ and is the word translated ‘body’ in Numbers 19:11. Yahweh said the soul, or nephesh, that sins shall die (Ez. 18:4, 20). The word nephesh occurs 754 times in the OT, with 472 of those being translated soul and the rest through a variety of terms. In 13 passages, nephesh is associated with the grave, pit, and silence of the grave. It is used of man as being cut off by Yahweh and as being mortal and subject to death. Also, it refers to the body and the dead body. Nephesh parallels the Greek psuche in the NT, which is the only word translated soul. Psuche is used of man and the life of man that can be lost, destroyed, or saved. It is also rendered, ‘self, mind, and heart.’”Correct: B
