How the Internet is Fulfilling Bible Prophecy
by Jon Ikin

In 1969 four computers were joined together to form the grandfather of the internet. Workers at the United States Department of Defence Research Projects Agency (ARPA) wanted to create a flow of information between military installationsand other establishments. At the time they probably didn't realise that they had just made history, much less prepared the way for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Today 26% of the world's population are on the internet and by 2012 it is estimated that 500 million homes world wide will have broadband - a vital piece in the end times jigsaw. This article seeks to explore some of the ways in which the internet is helping to bring the prophecies of Scripture to pass.

Prophetic Witness - January 2011THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE

by Martin Oliver

Before dealing with 'The Lamb's Book of Life', we need to look at what Scripture says in regard to 'The Book of Life' and the other books that will be opened, in the last days before the New Heaven and Earth are established. The Book of Life (also translated 'a scroll') has been in existence from before the beginning of time. It is a book of names, that God calls 'My Book,' of which Moses wrote in Exodus 32:33, when he interceded on Israel's behalf following their making a golden calf to worship. On that occasion Moses said to God, "please forgive their sin but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written" (See Exodus 32:32). The words 'blot out' literally mean 'rub out' or 'erase' both in the old Testament and in the New Testament. This introduces us to the subject of The Lamb's Book of Life, the exact interpretation of which is not without its difficulties. It is therefore not surprising that little Christian literature is devoted to this subject. Hopefully the following may help us to understand a little more of what God has planned and revealed in Holy Scripture. Firstly let us look more closely at The Book of Life.
