“The elder unto the well-beloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth” — 3 John:1-2 KJV A very short English 101 lesson here: the word “as” in this passage does not appear in the original Greek […]
About Bud Hancock
Born and raised in a small textile town in North Carolina, Bud’s family moved to Michigan in the hope of finding better employment with General Motors. After graduating from high school, Bud began an apprenticeship with General Motors to become a Metal Modelmaker.
Retiring after a 30 year career, which included an eight year stint as a Metrologist, he and his wife moved back to North Carolina to be near his elderly parents. Shortly thereafter, with both of his parents having passed, he started a new career in the bank security/ATM business, advancing from an entry level technician to one of two North Carolina customer service managers for his employer.
Retiring again after 13 years, he and his wife of 51 years relocated to Tennessee where Bud began writing articles specializing in Bible teaching and geopolitical issues. At age 75, he and his wife relocated to South Carolina with their Miniature Schnauzer, Baxter.
Bud continues to study God’s word and write articles on Christian living and geopolitical issues from the Biblical end times perspective.

All the vessels used for the worship of YAHWEH in the Jewish temple in Jerusalem were special, having been designed by God with strict specifications, crafted by the very best skilled craftsmen and then consecrated for His worship. As such, only certain people, namely the Jewish priests, were ever allowed to touch these vessels. However, […]
Armies are known by the weapons they deploy, which are sometimes used exclusively by them and not by other armies. For example, the Soviet/Russian army has used the AK 47 assault rifle since shortly after the day it was invented in 1947. Armies are also known by their armored weapons, e.g., the American Sherman tank, […]
Every responsible adult in this country who reads a newspaper, watches a TV news program, or surfs the internet knows that we are experiencing a serious breakdown of the foundation of our culture. That foundation has long been considered the Judeo-Christian values that were so prevalent when our Founding Fathers gathered together to form what […]
God, The Rewarder One meme I heard a long time ago, likely from a song or poem, is: “God’s in His heaven, all’s right with the world”. This is at best, a ‘half-truth’. Yes, God is in His heaven (plus everywhere else in the universe), but all is definitely NOT right with the world. Likely […]
Introduction There is a battle constantly raging in the mental realm, a battle that if lost, can claim the soul of the combatant. The battle is between Good (God/faith) and evil (Satan/fear). Just as God and Satan are diametrically opposing forces, so faith and fear have never been able to exist together without a fight […]
Introduction The Lord God has always known the end from the beginning (Isaiah 41: 10 KJV). Although He does not always reveal what is going to happen at any given point in time, He provides clues in His word to assist us in knowing what we need to know. And even though God exists outside […]
Christmas is one of the most popular, and busy, holiday seasons on earth. People are planning special dinners and family get-togethers, shopping for last-minute gifts, putting the final touches on decorations and doing almost everything except remembering what the holiday is truly about. I have no problem with all the various activities mentioned, and I […]
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains taken to bring it to light.” — George Washington, to Charles M. Thruston, August 10, 1794 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the […]
The Creator The heavens and the earth were created in a six day ‘earth period’, they did not ‘just appear’ as a result of some ‘big bang’ event that occurred spontaneously billions of years ago in the universe. These facts are well-documented in the Book of Genesis, as well as numerous scripture references throughout the […]
Throughout the known history of the world, there have been nearly constant military confrontations. The reason for some of them is easily seen, with one hostile force openly attacking another, a situation that in most cases demands a response from the attacked. In other cases, there have been hostilities, intrigues and covert actions between forces […]
Should a Believer Trust The Government? I find it curious that so many ‘religious people’ still believe, and place their trust in, the fallacy that governments are going to make things better for them and their families. Ronald Reagan once said: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government […]
