Lessons from Daniel 5 on the future of America and the coming Middle East War

"Is America in a 'Nebuchadnezzar moment' where we still have an opportunity to repent and be restored, or a 'Belshazzar moment' (where God removes His favour from us and turns out the lights)?

Prophetic Witness - March 2012The Early History of Modern Israel

by Rev Byron Jones

The Sovereign Lord declares - he who gathers the exiles of Israel; "I will gather still others to them besides those already gathered." (Is.56v8).

On the afternoon of May 14 1948, just a few hours before the British mandate over Palestine ended, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the establishment of the state of Israel, signalling the fulfilment of God's Word. (Is. 66v8).

There are many examples in the Old Testament where God foretold the return of his people to the land promised to their forefathers. In fact, throughout the nineteen centuries of national exile some Jews were present in the holy land in varying numbers, though it was the onset of 'Zionism' at the end of the nineteenth century which began to see serious numbers returning. It is known that at 1880 there were 25,000 Jews resident, which had increased to 100,000 by 1914, reaching 15% of the total population.

By the end of the first world war following the Balfour declaration and the Ottoman Turks being driven out, numbers of immigrants had increased again and the effect on the population of Palestinian Arabs was profoundly positive. The new settlers brought money, energy, new ideas and European know-how which had a huge effect upon the economy of the region.

Prophetic Witness - February 2012From Vengence to Forgiveness

by Dr Paul Wilkinson

Seventy years ago on the morning of Sunday 7th December 1941, thirty-nine year old Mitso Fuchida flew out to an island off the west coast of America. He was "more excited than usual" that day as he crossed the Pacific Ocean and headed towards the island paradise of Hawaii. Fuchida did not travel alone. As general commander of the Imperial Japanese air squadron, he led the first wave of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbour, which ultimately drew the United States into the second world war. ...

2012 - The Year of Evangelism

by Rev Colin Le Noury
PWMI General Director

Nearly 45 years ago, as a young man, I sat in the back row of a Baptist Chapel in a Sunday night meeting listening to an old uneducated preacher who spoke with passion and conviction. His subject that night was The Second Coming of Christ. He was not schooled in prophecy as such but he was well versed in the Scriptures and i listened intently as he went through the Bible from Scripture to Scripture emphasising the soon return of the Lord for His Church.

I was not a believer but I sat rooted to my seat as the Holy Spirit began to convict me of my need of a Saviour. Every Scripture seemed to travel....

Prophetic Witness - December 2011A Child, A Son, A Governor

by Rev Byron Jones

''For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace...' (Isaiah 9v6-7).

This promise came at one of the most gloomy and dark moments in Israel's history when it seemed that the nation would be extinguished through the evil intentions of the ruler of a world superpower.

Prophetic Witness - November 2011Euro Crisis, The IMF
and the Last Days

by Tony Pearce

Greece has been at the centre of world attention due to the crisis affecting its economy caused by its massive debt of 350billion euros. Greece required a bailout from the EU and IMF of 110 billion euros on condition it passed a 25 billion euro austerity package demanded by the EU. Accepting these measures will save Greece from banckruptcy but will put the country more under the control of the powers who provide the money.
