About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Jewish school team faces forfeit over championship on Sabbath

KRDO.com Colorado Springs, Pueblo - Weather, News, Sports - Jewish school team faces forfeit over championship on Sabbath
State senators have taken up the cause of a Jewish school's basketball teams whose playoff runs may be halted because its players can't play on their Sabbath.

Herzl/Rocky Mountain Hebrew Academy's boys team could be headed for a regional championship on Saturday, March 8th, if it wins one more game. But the Denver school's religious beliefs prohibit students from playing on the Jewish Sabbath between sundown Friday and sundown Saturday.

Earlier this month, the Colorado High School Activities Association rejected the team's request for a schedule change.

CHSAA (CHA-sah) says the school would be replaced if it goes to the regional championship and can't play.

Senator Ken Gordon says there's little lawmakers can do to the privately funded organization but says CHSAA should be more flexible.

CHSAA Commissioner Bill Reader says it's impossible for the group to be all things for all people.
