SIGNS OF THE TIMES

by Tony Pearce

In this month's issue read about the "SIGNS OF THE TIMES".

"Will the Rapture occur in September?"

Prophecy websites are full of articles claiming something big is about in September... 

...We need to be cautious about all this. The rapture occurs at an unknown date and could happen at any time of the year (not just at the time of the Jewish Feast of Trumpets). All too often prophecy teachers have told of dramatic events about to happen on a specific date, deduced from their interpretation of scripture and events, only to be left disappointed and left looking silly after the event passes and nothing significant happens.

"Church of England Synod's sin offering."

"Pope Francis: World Government to save the poor."

"Church of Sweden to require pastors to perform same sex marriages."

"Teacher claiming the Left are brainwashing our children."

"Wild fires rip through southern Europe and North America."

"Tensions surround Qatar and the Gulf States."

Is Modern Israel of God or is it of man?

by Pastor Alan (A.B.) Robertson

CHAPTER 1:THE BLESSING AND THE CURSE!

In the Introduction, starting with Adam and Eve, we very briefly reviewed the history of mankind up and till the call of Abraham. The call of Abraham and the covenant God made with him
and his descendants is fundamental to the whole subject of "IS MODERN ISRAEL GOD'S IDEA OR MAN'S" and so we will begin by examining the main features of the "Covenant."
 
"Now the Lord had said to Abram: ’Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:1-3.
 
The Covenant became a "blood covenant” some years later when Abraham had another encounter with the Lord. It was at that time that God revealed to Abraham certain details about the future of his family and confirmed the borders of the land that He was giving to him and his descendants.

"To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates.” Genesis 15:18.
The Covenant clearly involved the following points:

A) Possession of the land of Canaan.
B) God’s blessing on those who blessed Abraham and his descendants.
C) God’s curses upon those who cursed Abraham and his descendants.
D) Finally through Abraham and his descendants all the world would be blessed.
 
But before we can proceed we need once more to return to the beginning for it is here that the story of God’s dealing with His Creation begins.

CHRIST THE INTERCESSOR

by John Ross Macduff

"Who also makes intercession for us.”— Romans 8:34.

 "He who might have been placing a vial of wrath in the hand of every angel around His throne, with a commission to pour it out on this rebellious world until it was utterly consumed, is standing at the moment, at the altar of incense, presenting our prayers for mercy, and officiating there as our great High Priest" — Harris.
 
With the contemplation of every new Rock-cleft, the "treasures hidden in Christ" seem to grow upon us, not only in number and variety, but in value and preciousness.

GOG
PEACE and SAFETY for Israel

by David Howard Sudlow

God is faithful to all His covenant promises to Israel, the Church and His Creation. We look and pray for those promises and are quickened with faith, hope, and love. Great days are ahead in the fulfilling of the Gospel of the Kingdom. We can see God’s great covenant promises coming to pass for His firstborn Israel; therefore we are assured that our redemption is certain - the Lord’s coming is very near, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thess. 5: 2-3).

BREXIT

EU Catastrophe Heralds Jesus Is Coming

by David Howard Sudlow

The prophetic catastrophe unfolding in the EU along with the geopolitical events worldwide; especially the looming prophetic climax with Israel, all point to the imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We who love His appearing are called to live in that purifying Hope and prayerfully wait for the LORD to fulfill His Word before we can fully interpret it. Yet, the sure Word of prophecy for the ultimate end of the Church age is clear. The mature fulfilment of Christ’s Words telling of the signs of His return all point to His very near coming.

JESUS RETURNS:
The Promise Of The Rapture

by Dr Ed Hindson

One of the most compelling and exciting prophetic events described in the Bible is the rapture at the Church. It is clearly taught in 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, where the apostle Paul provides us with these details:

This we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words (verses 15-18).

From this passage of Scripture, we can see that there are five stages to the rapture:

Prophetic Witness - February 2017Round In Circles

by Samuel T. Carson

To even think of reinventing the wheel would be utter presumption, and yet it is a good thing for us to pause and ask a few questions of ourselves. What are we doing? Where are we headed? Are we, in fact, making any forward movement or are we like the proverbial door on its hinges, always on the move, back and forth, but never really getting anywhere?

The Significance of the Resurrection

by Bob Deffinbaugh

....... The significance of Easter is often overlooked or distorted by churches in America. All too often, Easter Sunday is more of a "coming out” ritual, a part of the celebration of the commencement of Spring, than it is an observance and celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. Ladies can show off their new hats and outfits. Once a year church attenders can show up to shock the preacher, and to give him his annual “shot” at them as they attend.

Mysteries Of The Star Of Bethlehem

Dr David R. Reagan

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him.” — Matthew 2: 1-2.
 
The star of Bethlehem has always intrigued people What was it? Could it have been a comet or a meteor or a super-nova? What about a special alignment of planets?
