Defusing the Mideast powder keg

December 28, 2018

In her final address to the UN Security Council this month, outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley previewed the benefits of the Middle East peace proposal the Trump administration will soon unveil. “It is time we faced a hard truth,” she said. “Both sides would benefit greatly from a peace agreement, but the Palestinians would benefit more, and the Israelis would risk more.” Throughout her two-year tenure, Haley said, she has worked to “illustrate that most of the region’s problem...

December 27, 2018

Terrorism is on the rise again in Israel. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) recently uncovered three attack tunnels leading from Lebanon into Israel.

In the past few weeks, terrorists stabbed an IDF soldier and shot and killed two soldiers in the West Bank. Terrorists also sprayed bullets into a crowd of civilians waiting at a bus stop. The dri...

Terrorism in Israel bubbling to the surface

December 21, 2018

Shira Ish-Ran was 21 years old and seven months pregnant when she visited with her husband, Amichai, and several other people near a West Bank bus stop. A Hamas terrorist sprayed bullets into the crowd, and Shira and Amichai were among the seven people injured. They survived, but their baby died four days later. Hamas called the attack a “heroic and qualitative operation.” Analysts called it yet another sign of the Iran-backed terror group’s plan to oust Palestinian Authority (PA) Presiden...

December 19, 2018

Messianic Prophecies Series, Part 1 There are hundreds of Messianic prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures that foretell specific information about God’s promised Messiah. Mathematician Peter Stoner looked at the statistical probability of one man fulfilling even a handful of them. In his book, Science Speaks, Stoner revealed that the chance any one man might fulfill just eight of those Messianic prophecies in the Old Covenant is one in one hundred quadrillion – one in 10 to the 17th power, o...

December 18, 2018

You’re probably as astonished as I am. The end of another year is already here. I hope you have experienced God’s love and blessing in 2018.

Thank you for making a difference in Ethiopia

December 14, 2018

Because of you, we were able to conduct a five-day Clinic in Alamata, which is about 250 miles north of the capital city of Addis Ababa. We ...

Father, lift the veil

December 14, 2018

Each week throughout the year, Jewish people around the world read a designated Scripture passage from the Torah, which comprises the first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures.

Reading, studying and praying through the weekly Torah portion is a wonderful way for Believers to take part in this global Jewish practice each week. Last week’s Torah portion was Genesis chapters 41 throu...
