editor 20 February 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book “Israel: Covenants & Kingdom”

Introduction
For many years we all have seen the miracle happen – the return of the Jewish people from all over the world to the Promised Land of Israel. We are the generation that is seeing Biblical prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Many prophecies in the Old Testament speak about this. To quote just one, where God speaks to Israel: “…Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ – and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth – everyone who is called by My Name, whom I created for My glory, whom I formed and made. Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf…” (Isaiah 43:5-8). (more…)

editor 19 February 2018

By Andrew Tucker.. Prayer is at the heart of our Christian faith. Throughout the gospels, we read that Jesus Himself was almost constantly in prayer with His Father in heaven. For Him, this was the most natural and important thing to be doing. Regularly He withdrew from the crowds to spend time with His Father; even His own disciples often did not know where He was. He spent nights alone on the mountain in prayer. His last night before His arrest and crucifixion was a long night of tears spent in close communion with His Father. (more…)

editor 17 February 2018

By James Masters – CNN.. Polish President Andrzej Duda says he will sign the country’s controversial Holocaust bill, but plans to send the bill to the constitutional tribunal for review.
