Did you know: That certain owls have extra large wings so that when they dive on the mouse, the poor little creature can't hear them coming? Also, they have groves in their wings that make the wind noise less, again so that the mouse does not hear them coming. How did this species of owl "evolve" such mechanisms? If it did not, it would not have eaten and would have died long ago! There was no evolution in their creation.

Did you know: That makko sharks swim 6 times faster than humans. On their skin they have tiny teeth to reduce drag and give them more speed. They need this because of their large size. What if they did not have these teeth? They would have missed their meals and would have died.

Did you know: That certain gulls can dive into the water at 90 mph in order to catch fish and that they begin the dive from twice the height of Olympic divers? They dive dozens of times per day, and if not, their chicks would die from lack of food. A half a second before they hit the water, an air bag opens on the top of their heads and a bag opens around their chest in order to keep them alive from the dive! THIS IS NOT LEARNED BEHAVIOR! They were created this way; these air bags did not evolve. These gulls were created this way—thus, no evolution! Only these specific gulls do this. No other birds can do the same!

And yet our kids in public school are told that these things just evolved by chance, by accident! How foolish. More and more "evolutionists" are turning away from believing such things, and yet, they do not confess that they've got it all wrong!

One of my courses in college was an anti-evolution biology study taught by a Ph.D. in biology. He really knew what he was talking about! Do you know another Bible teacher who was so blessed with such a course? Probably not.

Fifteen years ago he sent me this kind word. He was then the editor of the Christian newspaper in Ft. Worth.

"Dr. Couch, to my dear brother and go-laborer—may you and I each leave a legacy of honor and godliness like Stonewall Jackson as he served the Lord and also his country." This would be the prayer and concern of all of us as we strive to serve in very troubled times. In the biography of Jackson written by Rondel Rumburg, we read this that is fitting for our day:

"There is always a great danger of losing an understanding of the heritage of an era when present-day historians and writers try to impose their own cultural mores on that period of time. Charles Rollins in his Ancient History, declared, 'Man, when abandoned to his own ideas, sees nothing beyond the present moment.' When the vision is thus limited there will be a near-sighted approach to history. It is at that point when distortions become the facts of history. … The greatest threat is within, because some are conforming to the will of the change agents."

Our Christian culture today is collapsing rapidly. Pastors are moving away from the Word of God in order to conform to what the world desires. We can't keep up with the evil changes that are coming upon us so quickly. Campus Crusade has dropped the name of Christ in their title. Many Bible churches are dropping the word "Bible." They all want to be accepted and be politically correct. Someday there will be a price to pay. We indeed are deep into the apostasy. A judgment is certainly not far away.

Isaiah 11:11-16 is a great prophetic passage that describes the preliminary events of Israel's persecution by the Arab nations, even Islam, so notes Dr. Merrill F. Unger, the great OT scholar of years past. The verses tell us of the Jews returning to Zion, as Unger notes, beginning in 1948 with the founding of the state of Israel.

These prophesied events "will happen on that day" (v. 11). God "will again recover the second time with His hand the remnant of His people who" have remained in the Arab lands after being scattered (v. 11b). They will return back to their Holy Land "from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and from the islands (the continents, along the shores) around the sea (v. 11c).

The Lord "will lift up a flag (a standard) for the nations, and will assemble the banished ones of Israel, and will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth" (v. 12). The Jews will not fight with each other (the Northern kingdom-Ephraim, and the Southern kingdom-Judah) (v. 13). Unger writes that "the old rancor will be healed in the kingdom, and the unity of all Israel will become a blessed reality."

When the Jews are back in their Holy Land, they will "swoop down on the slopes of the Philistines on the west" (v. 14). They will secure their western borders and subdue the peoples who are the leftover of the Philistine tribes. The Jews will "plunder the sons of the east" (v. 14b) by possessing the Arab Muslim peoples near by: the Edomites, the Moabites, and the sons of Ammon (v. 14c).

Nature will be changed by the Lord (v. 15). He will "utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt (the Red Sea, Sea of Reeds); and He will wave His hand over the River (Euphrates)," today where we see Iran and Iraq. Men will walk "dry-shod" over the river-bed (v. 15b). And as the kingdom begins, the Lord will establish "a highway from Assyria for the remnant of His people who will be left, just as there was for Israel in the day that they came up out of the land of Egypt (under Moses)" (v. 16).

Several things must happen first: (1) the apostasy (which we see presently), (2) the rapture of the church, (3) the terrible seven year tribulation, (4) and then finally, when Christ comes to establish His kingdom reign. All events are drawing closer to fulfillment! We are closer than we can imagine!

The apostasy is upon us. I predicted three years ago that by watching TV we would see the apostasy increasing by what is shown on the tube. And I was right! Television is getting dirtier and dirtier. More filth is being pumped into our culture. And, there is no turning back.

Women are dominating the TV screen. As news anchors and as cop-erettes. The John Waynes are gone. This was predicted in Scripture. In Isaiah 3 we read: "The young boys will be their leaders (princes) and capricious children will rule over them" (v. 4). "There oppressors will be children, and women will rule over them. … Those who guide you will lead you astray, and confuse the direction of your paths" (v. 12). "The people will be oppressed, … the youth will storm against the elder, and the inferior against the honorable one" (v. 5). They will say "You have a cloak (of honor), therefore you shall be our ruler" (v. 6).

More is coming. It is not getting better! --Dr. Mal Couch (9/11)

The courts have made it clear "America is a Christian nation." People knew that the Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and others were not part of the American culture. "The legal debates knew that the generic Christian faith, was what built up this nation. Our culture, our society, was all built on the Bible and Christianity. "The essential difference between the American Revolution and the French Revolution was an anti-religious event." John Adams said as much when he observed that the "Revolution was in the mind and hearts of the people, and change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations." American generic Christianity fit hand in glove with republicanism. Alexis de Tocqueville provided a virtual road map for the future direction of the young nation, observed that in the U.S. the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom were ultimately unified, and that they reigned in common over the same country..

John Adams negotiated a peace treaty with the Islamic Barbery Pirates because they were raiding our commerce ships. We virtually went to war with them. This stopped them from moving further into Europe in their effort to take over that part of the world. We are now going into round two. The Muslims are coming on to capture the entire world for Allah! --Dr. Mal Couch (9/11)

Has God stopped the rain in America? Yes, of course! We read that He is in charge of His history, and His nature in His world. We read that the Lord says, "I will remove the hedge (of protection) and it will be consumed; I will break down its walls and it will become trampled ground. And I will lay it waste … I will also charge the clouds, TO RAIN OR NOT TO RAIN on the world" (Isa. 5:6). The reason: My people "do not pay attention to the deeds of the Lord, nor do they consider the work of His hands" (v. 12).

For "My people have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. … Therefore, He has stretched out His hand against them and struck them down, and the mountains quaked. … For all this His anger is not spent, but His hand is still stretched out" in declaring a judgment (vv. 25-26).

The people just say "We play." This is what we see today on TV. Americans just "Play, play, and play." It seems to never end! The people "rise up early in the morning that they may pursue strong drink; who stay up late in the evening that wine may inflame them!" (v. 11). They will go into exile for lack of knowledge (v. 13).

The people in America love signs from the Lord. They ask God to hurry up, to make hasten His work, "so that they may see it. … Let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come to pass, that we may know what He is doing" (v. 19). In fact, they call evil good, and good evil; and substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; they substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. They justify the wicked for a bribe and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right" (vv. 20-23).

Americans are too occupied to be concerned about His coming. They ask "Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation" (2 Pet. 3:4). Job adds that the Lord sends the drops of rain and the clouds, and His thundering. He spreads the lightning about Him … for by it He judges the peoples (of earth); He gives food in abundance. He commands the lightning to strike its mark. Its noise declares His presence. The cattle know what is coming!" (Job 36:29-33). HE IS IN CHARGE!

He tells the snow to fall upon the earth (37:6) and He tells the rain to be strong (v. 6). He loads the clouds with thick moisture; He disperses the clouds of His lightning. It changes direction, turning around by His guidance that it may do whatever He commands it on the face of the inhabited earth. Whether for correction, or for (the benefit) of His world, or for lovingkindness, He causes it to happen" (vv. 12-13).

Thus, He holds back the rain, the clouds and snow, or He sends it!

God sends rain on the land where there is no people, He satisfies the young lions, the young birds cry to God for food, or wander about without food, as He sees fit! (38:26-41).

Storms, earthquakes, drought, fires, tornadoes, floods, all come upon us by God's command. Nothing happens by accident. We are hopeless and helpless without His intervention.

For some time now many of us have been looking at Islam as the driving force behind Babylon the Harlot as seen in Revelation 17-18. While we certainly do not want to interpret the Bible by current history, this idea has some possibility to it.

Shoebat in his latest book "God's War On Terror" has opened the door on this idea with a lot of evidence that this may be true.

These names of well-known men of the past have also thought this could be possible:

John Wesley said "The iron teeth of Islam matches closely with" such an idea.

Hilaire Belloc (1938) said "I believe that a main unexpected thing of the future is the return of Islam."

Gregory Palamus of Thessalonica (1354) wrote "The Muslims live by the bow, the sword and debauchery, taking slaves, devoting themselves to murder, pillage, spoil, they believe God approves of them."

Vernon Richards said Islam and Muhammad's concept of Allah believes in making the whole world Muslim, this is an actual mandate for war. This is their latest attempt to conquer the infidel world."

Josiah Litch (1840) interpreted the star in the figurative language of Revelation, is a minister of religion.

Sir Robert Anderson argued for the rise of power with Iran, Iraq, and Turkey as the great kingdoms who seek power in the end times.

Anderson added that the Levant and not the Adriatic, Jerusalem and not Rome, is the center of the world in the End Times.

Cyril of Jerusalem (315-386) said the antichrist will come from the Middle East is certainly not new.

Sophronius, Patriarch of Jerusalem (560-638) identified the Muslim occupation of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount as the fulfillment of the "abomination that causes desolation" that is always associated with the coming of the antichrist."

Other names can be mentioned such as Maximus The Confessor (580-662), John of Damascus (676-749), Eulogius, Paul Alvarus, and the Martyrs of Cordova, as well as Martin Luther can be added to the list.

While the unity is mixed, these scholars are getting close to Babylon in their interpretation of what is happening in the Middle East. --Dr. Mal Couch (9/11)

More and more Baptist pastors are failing. Many of them are moving into false doctrine. Many Baptist pastors come to the house and just ask if the person will sign a covenant in order to be a member of the church. They don't ask about being born again. Some even believe that the various denominations are the same. They have bought into Rick Warren's thing and have no doctrinal discernment. They advocate the Purpose Driven philosophy.

On page 12 of Warren's book "A Purpose Driven Life" he says that many have been captured under the cross, the moon and the hammer and the sickle, and, that the cross is not what the church is all about. The only symbols are concentric circles and baseball diamond. Many Purpose Driven churches have removed the cross.

1 Corinthians 1:30 is a profound verse of Scripture. God has placed us into Christ which gives us a new POSITION in Him. The verse reads:

"By [God's] doing you are [placed] in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption."

We become four things because we are IN Christ. Sanctification is the Greek word related to "Hagios" which means holiness, or holy. We are holy because we are in Christ, we are related to Him! "In Christ" is a technical expression. By being in Him, we are saved because who He is brings about our new relationship. I am found only in Him!

"Became" is the Greek word "ginomai" which means "to become something different." We became someone who is now "wisdom." That happens because we are related to Christ. This is "wisdom" from God. Nicoll writes:

"It comes of Him (God) that you are in Christ Jesus." "Your new life derived from God is grounded in Christ." The relative clause "who was made wisdom unfolds the content of the life communicated" to us from God in Christ. God has done it all. He gives us Christ's righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, all because we are related to Him. Without God's working we would have nothing. —Dr. Mal Couch (9/11)

Unfortunately, there is a war going on between hard core Reformed guys and dispensationalists. The dispensationalists are right. The Bible is “Dispensational,” and that can be proven all the way back to the early church. While being dispensational is not exactly being premillennial, the two are very close together. All dispensationalists are premillennial! The early church was clearly premillennial and so were the orthodox Jews. Christ and the disciples were. They made it clear that the church and Israel were not the same nor were they inter-linked.
What is happening is not a textual war but a philosophical skirmish. The Reformed guys just don't like dispensationalism. I want to thank ML for his great letter. We're putting up on the front page of our website for the month of September. He's right on! --Dr. Mal Couch


The Muslim flood into America began in 1991 under the presidency of George H.W. Bush. At that time the arrivals were about 6% per year. Now it is 16% each year. There has got to be a strategy afoot in order to destroy the Anglo-Saxon, European, Reformation base of America. Good bye America!

Noah's Ark was the largest ocean going vessel ever built until the building of the P&O Liner "the Himalaya." The Babylonian account which speaks of the Ark as a cube betrays complete ignorance. It was a cube that would spin around in the water and go no where! The Ark was the near-exact dimension of a modern ship, a ratio of 8.1 to 1.

The Ark was the sufficient dimensions to accomplish its intended purpose of saving alive thousands of kinds of air-breathing creatures that would otherwise not have survived the year-long flood waters. Assuming the length of the cubit to a have been at least 17.5 inches, the available floor space of this three-decked barge was over 95,000 square feet, and its total volume was 1,396,000 cubit feet.

Such figures are difficult to picture without comparisons. For the sake of realism, imagine waiting at a railroad crossing while ten freight trains, each pulling 52 boxcars, move slowly by, one after another. That is how much space was available in the Ark, for its capacity was equivalent to 520 modern railroad stock cars. A barge of such gigantic size, with its thousands of built-in compartments (Gen. 6:14) would have been sufficiently large to carry two of every species of air-breathing animal in the world today.

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm at my desk but I'm not studying for my teachings tomorrow and Monday night. I did all of that at the first and at the middle of the week. But many pastors are at their desks sweating trying to come up with something to dish out tomorrow morning.

My desk is covered with Hebrew and Greek grammar books. I have a roll cart also next to me with grammar books, lexicons, and language commentaries. I have my Hebrew text and Greek text so that I can translate verses I will be teaching on tomorrow. To my left the entire wall is covered with books, most of them grammar commentaries and grammar texts.

Many pastors do not want to study. They do not want to take the time to absorb the Scriptures into their hearts and minds. What a shame and what a loss! This is but a part of the departure or the sign of the fact that we've moved into a part of the apostasy Paul speaks of in his letters.

Carolyn McCall, the wife of Dr. Tom McCall, is a relative of John Alden, a personality of the American Revolution War period. Timothy (1771-1839) was a descendant of John Alden. The Timothy Alden Academy was founded for both boys and girls in Plymouth, New Hampshire. Timothy pioneered the "memoriter" method meaning that the student memorized the material he was supposed to be learning. The student who excelled in memorizing received a certificate.

The girls went to school during the summer because the boys had to work in the fields at that time. They went to school during the fall and winter while the girls canned the food for the coming winter. John Alden was seen as a young Pilgrim made well known by Longfellow in one of his poems. John was a graduate of Phillips Academy and of Harvard, and became a Congregational minister. He was greatly in teaching over and above preaching. In 1815 he founded Allegheny College at Meadville, Pennsylvania, and become its first president. A sample of a certificate of accomplishment for the students read:

"Margarit Frost Mead for her amiable behavior, at the academy, and for the progress, which she has made, in those branches to which she has attended, is entitled to the commendation of her friends and instructors."

Another certificate of Merit read:

"Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth. This may certify, that _______ for good conduct, and close attention to studies, has merited the approbation of her instructor."

It's a different world now for our children in school. God was then honored but not today!

What is going on with the term "Mystery Babylon" in Revelation 17:5? There is a lot of confusion about this expression. The word "mystery" is a noun and not an adjective. It was Tertullian in the second century who first called Babylon, Rome. Babylon means Babylon and nothing else. Also, in verse 1, the wilderness means the desert and is inapplicable to Rome but fits well with Babylon on the Euphrates, or certainly the Saudi Arabian Peninsula. Saudi Arabia is the largest nation in the Middle East. It is a huge country! The cities of Mecca and Medina in that nation.

This opens the door for Babylon being Islam today. Islam came out of Saudi Arabia and the city of Mecca. Many of us are coming to this position, in fact, I'm now working on a book on The Olivet Discourse and Islam. If you would like to have it, it will be $17 and be ready in about five weeks.

In Revelation 17-18 the woman's name is "Babylon the Great" not "Mystery Babylon the Great." Thomas writes: "This along with the fact that 'myserron' seems to have a parenthetical independence here brings a decision favoring the appositional relationship. This gives the sense, 'a name written, which is a mystery.'"

Thomas adds: "[Babylon] was a city where false religion began (Gen. 11:1-9) that has continually plagued Israel, the church, and the world. It will once again become the world's leading city religiously as well as commercially and politically as the end draws near. … So the metropolis that functions as headquarters for the beast's empire has a long reputation for its anti-God stance. It is a city, but it is also a vast religious system that stands for everything God does not tolerate."

All of this fits well with Islam. —Dr. Mal Couch(9/11)
