Coronation thoughts

C

Talk by Tony Pearce at the Bridge Christian Fellowship on 7th May The coronation service was outwardly very impressive and contained much that should have warmed the heart of a Christian, as the King made his oath to defend the Protestant faith and the Gospel.  But God is not impressed with outward form but with inward reality. Does King Charles believe the oath he made?  He has affirmed other...

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

“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

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?

L

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...

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...

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...
