Jerusalem and the End Times

J

The status of Jerusalem in the last days, as stated in Zechariah Chapter 12, is said to be a burdensome stone burdening all nations. It’s going to be the source of the final conflict. 2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a...

Acts 1 – Faith in perilous times

A

6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in...

Isaiah 51 – Awake!

I

9 Break forth into joy, sing together,You waste places of Jerusalem!For the Lord has comforted His people,He has redeemed Jerusalem.10 The Lord has made bare His holy armIn the eyes of all the nations;And all the ends of the earth shall seeThe salvation of our God.

Isaiah 52.9-10

Jerusalem at the centre of our world – Zechariah 12

J

I’m just going to read one more scripture, and we’ll skip over Jeremiah 30 and go to Zechariah 12, if you can. Zechariah 12 says, The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: 2 “Behold, I will make...

Is Jesus in the Boat with you?

I

Matthew 8.23-27 Now when He (Jesus) got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. 24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” 26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith...

Israel – prayers for our world

I

Are we on the Eve of Destruction? “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was...

War in the Middle East – Part II

W

The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: 2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 And it shall happen in...

War in the Middle East – Part I

W

Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that Israel is now at war and there is a danger that this war could spread through Hezbollah to other parts of the Middle East and could lead to something much bigger. It certainly is as I said in the prayer, a reminder of the Yom Kippur War when Israel was caught off guard and, on a holy day – a Jewish holiday – when Egypt and Syria invaded and nearly...
