Yom Kippur’s Hope

October 01, 2019

It’s not a day for saying, “Happy Holiday.” Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement – is a serious and solemn day. It is the holiest day of the Jewish year, and its observance includes “afflicting oneself” with fasting.

Help unleash the greatest revival in human history

September 27, 2019

As I write, I sense a stirring in my spirit … an anticipation of things to come if only we’ll continue to move forward in faith. Even now, prophetically significant events continue to unfold before our eyes. While I’ll never argue that we can ever know the exact day of Jesus’ return, prophecies are like signposts — indicating the direction God is leading His people.

Fighting erupts on Israel’s northern border, Hezbollah promises a war of terror Early last week, a sudden firefight erupted along the borderline of Israel and Lebanon.
