Signs of the Times – November 2022

Whither bound COP? Some 40,000 attendees have travelled to Sharm el-Sheikh on Egypt’s Sinai coast for the UN’s COP 27 Climate Change Conference.  This includes over 100 world leaders as well as leaders in business and other sectors. In conjunction with the UN event, a group of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith leaders are seeking a faith-based solution to the ecological crisis by promoting...

Sunday Services – October 30, 2022

S

“We are in rough seas. A winter of global discontent is on the horizon. A cost-of-living crisis is raging. Trust is crumbling. Inequalities are exploding. Our planet is burning. People are hurting – with the most vulnerable suffering the most. The United Nations Charter and the ideals it represents are in jeopardy. We have a duty to act. And yet we are gridlocked in colossal global...

EIIR remains Good News for all

E

As you know, every month, I do a ‘This Month in Prophecy’ talk to see if there are things that have happened in the last month which are relevant to the subject of the second coming. I guess the main event we saw this month in the UK was the death of our dear Queen, the funeral, all the mourning, and the lying-in-state. “In 1947, on her 21st birthday, she pledged in a broadcast from Cape...

Lord, what do you think about this?

Who Was There When Jesus Died? This was my question as I watched all the pageantry surrounding the death of the Queen.  The answer came back straight away – Isaiah 53 – the prophecy of the suffering of Messiah: ‘He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.’ This led me to give a talk comparing how people reacted to the death of the Queen with the death of Jesus...

Let’s just have a word of prayer as we come to the Word of God, praise God. Lord, we thank you for your Word. We thank you for the truth of your Word. We pray that you bless the preaching of your Word and build us up in our faith. In Jesus name, amen. I, like most of you, have been watching the television, looking at the news and seeing all the pictures of the Queen lying-in-state and all...

Israel’s foundations

I

Coming back to the idea of foundations. What were the foundations of Israel? What was this Psalm about? In the Lord I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”? 2 For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do? 4 The...

Current Affairs Update – April 2022

Such a global digital global currency would require the establishment of a global digital identity for every person on the planet. That’s what some people would like to see, and you might think it’s far-fetched, ‘it couldn’t happen’, but there are people already planning it. And already, it’s happening in some measure in China. So, if that spreads, then you’ve got a...

Is Russia in the Bible?

I

Introduction In the January 2022 edition of Light for the Last Days I wrote that there were three world situations threatening wars which could have far reaching consequences.  Russia and Ukraine, China and Taiwan and Iran and Israel. Now the Russia and Ukraine war has happened. Will the other two follow? The world was in shock after weeks of denying that he had any intention to invade...

¿Encontramos a Rusia en la Biblia?

¿

Introducción En la edición de enero de 2022 de Luz para los últimos días, escribí que había tres situaciones mundiales que amenazaban con guerras que podrían tener consecuencias de largo alcance. Rusia y Ucrania, China y Taiwán e Irán e Israel. Ahora ha ocurrido la guerra de Rusia y Ucrania. ¿Seguirán los otros dos? El mundo está en estado de shock después de semanas en que ha negado que tenía...

來自我們的以色列問訊處

烏克蘭的猶太人口 猶太人在烏克蘭生活了很長時間,他們來到這裡甚至比這個國家名稱的首次使用記錄還要早。從九世紀開始,猶太人開始在烏日戈羅德和盧甘斯克之間定居–分別是現在烏克蘭最西邊和最東邊的城市。 但從歷史上看,猶太人在烏克蘭的大部分時間裡都沒有輕鬆的生活。在17世紀,數以千計的人被博丹-赫梅利尼茨基的哥薩克軍隊殘忍地屠殺了。儘管如此,該地區在18世紀出現了猶太移民的湧入,當時它成為俄羅斯帝國 “安置區 “的一部分–一個允許猶太人定居的區域。烏克蘭離莫斯科相對較近,使其成為猶太人的首選目的地。 到1939年,烏克蘭有不少於150萬猶太人。其中一位是世界上最偉大的意第緒語作家之一肖勒姆-阿萊克姆(Sholem Aleichem)。另一位是常被視為以色列民族詩人的查伊姆-納赫曼-比亞利克。以色列唯一的女總理戈爾達...
