A compendium of events that purportedly fulfill Biblical prophecy and portend an impending Rapture, Christ's return for His Church. To some degree this site is a bit of an overkill. Furthermore, the catstrophes of nature described in the Book of Revelation will take place after the Rapture, not before. Nevertheless, it's an interesting concept...
Translate from one language to another online for free. I have used it to convert English Bible studies into Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch. The free translations are "gisted," not syntactical. If you want a professional translation, you must pay for it.
More recently, I have discovered Google Translate as a helpful translation site. It seems very user-friendly. When translating into another language, it is helpful at times to retranslate your target translation back into English. Sometimes that can help you detect an English word that is ambiguous enough that hinders translation. Sometimes a certain amount of experimentation can help you choose more "fool-proof" English synonyms that more readily translate accurately into your target language. There is no substitute for a human resource who is at home in the target language, however.

StudyLight has complete revamped its whole website with a brand new look. Personally, I feel this move has been decidedly unhelpful. I have found it most difficult to navigate. Fortunately, the webmaster has retained the option of the old look, which he designates "Classic StudyLight. The links for the Logo and for the tools below I have retained in the Classic format.
While I have not researched the whole site, Studylight.org does provide some worthwhile Bible Study tools. Of particular interest to me are the site's online Lexicons, which provide definitions and the facility for studying the usages of various Hebrew and Greek original words behind the English text. Options are available for Strong's numbers for both the King James Version and the New American Standard Bible. (To use the Lexicons directly the lay person needs to know the appropriate Strong's Number. Alternatively, one can access the Bible Dictionaries on site, plug in an English word, and be directed to the appropriate lexicon.)
Exposition of Genesis, Volume I, by Herbert Carl Leupold (1892-1972). At the time of writing, Leupold was Professor of Old Testament Exegesis in the Capital University Seminary, Columbus, Ohio. Though an amillennial, Leupold was a rock-ribbed conservative, stoutly defending a true understanding of God's Word against the pernicious hypotheses of critical (liberal) scholars.

Answers in Genesis does an excellent job of upholding the truth of God's Word in relation to matters scientific, including physical science, geology, biology, zoology, and astronomy. Answers in Genesis holds to a recent creation and presents compelling scientific evidence to support its claims. Answers in Genesis scholars interact with the Hebrew text of the Old Testament and are careful not to make claims that cannot be supported from both a Biblical and a scientific point of view. Answers in Genesis holds to a literal understanding of the Bible and a literal, world-wide flood that has radically affected the geological understanding of our present earth.

I like mutual funds because I personally don't wish to invest the time and energy to watch the Stock Market. Having been burned, however, by the bear market described below, I am personally tracking the market on almost a daily basis.
I like WMIF because it has never invested in gambling, alcohol, or tobacco. Click here for a Prospectus.
May 1, 2009 Caveat: Just what, not why. From about October 2007-February 2009 WMIF and most if not all other mutual funds fell victims to a very nasty bear market and lost about half their value. In March, 2009 the Dow Jones Industrial Average rebounded significantly from a low of under 7,000. At its height the DJIA had been trading in the 13,000-14,000 area. If you don't have any idea why the stock market went down globally, you have no business investing in it. Suffice it to say that the stock market reflects accurately what is occurring politically, economically, and providentially. Buyer Beware!
