Geopolitics of the Middle East

G

Another interesting factor relates to China which is a dominant power. China is moving into all parts of the world including the Middle East, and they have made this deal with Iran and Saudi Arabia; a very big deal. Saudi and Iran have been at loggerheads: Saudi the leading Sunni power and Iran, the leading Shiite power, are hostile to each other. Iran has hit Saudi with missiles and there is a...

Signs of the Times – July 2022

Thoughts on the Jubilee I turned on the Service at St Paul’s Cathedral to honour the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with some foreboding expecting the usual establishment mish mash of multi faith platitudes.  I was pleasantly surprised to hear a traditional Christian service with prayers in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that I could say Amen to and hymns and readings that were scriptural.  It began...

Israel in den letzten Tagen – Krieg oder Frieden? In Israel geschieht immer etwas Bedeutendes, da die Sammlung des jüdischen Volkes ins Land Israel das Hauptzeichen der letzten Tage und der Wiederkunft des Messias in der Bibel ist. Viele Propheten sprechen darüber, z.B. Jeremia 31.10: „Hört das Wort des Herrn, ihr Heidenvölker, und verkündigt es auf den fernen Inseln und sprecht: Der Israel...

‘A carefully prepared Apocalypse’

I just want to go back to the COVID and the economic situation. I heard recently a talk by a man called Ernst Wolff, a German (the talk was in German). You can get it on the internet. It helps that it has subtitles under it. He’s described as a finance author, journalist, and author. As far as I know he’s not a Christian, in fact his solution was a humanistic one but when I heard him...
