A PICTURE OF CREATION?


Hello again folks! I absolutely love this magazine cover from the latest edition of David Hathaway's "Prophetic Vision" magazine. It's not an endorsement of the man's ministry per se - but it is an endorsement of this quarter's  magazine cover. Simply marvellous ... and it gives any reader a realistic idea of the alternative to that evolutionary THEORY being peddled as fact which is:

"... evolutionary THEORY holds that nobody used nothing to make something at some point for no reason ..."

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

PERIPHERAL VISION [3]

Hello again folks! A numbers of folks have asked me why I have not been posting on the latest uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East as well as the general Arab revolts being reported by mainstream media. Some have also enquired as to why I have been supposedly 'silent' w.r.t. the recent spate of earthquakes and natural disasters. The reason is twofold.

Firstly; many much more qualified and specific ministries are out there focusing on the Matthew 24 aspect of the above events and I do not want to repeat what reputable sources are writing and publishing on the subject of:  "... wars and rumours of wars ... nation [rising] against nation, and kingdom against kingdom ... famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes ..." [Matthew 24:6-7]

Secondly; a key aspect of those 'Last Days' will be deception. Henceforth a lot a the events and building blocks of antichrist will be delivered right under our noses; so to speak. Whether it be by natural or contrived circumstances; and maybe the political or the economic or other elements that we are warned of; it is my belief that not a few folks will be saying: "How did all this come about and why wasn't I told about it?" in the days; months and [hopefully] years to come.

I am looking and searching out on the periphery for a fair proportion in the time that I have available - and I always have. It is out on the periphery where surreptitious activities are afoot that are not reported or are reported at such a low level that most folks miss it. So please forgive me if sometimes some of the most popular or mass media inspired 'newsworthy' stories are missing here. My intention has always been to inspire folks to check things out for themselves [i.e. to be Bereans]; to encourage folks to be forewarned and forearmed for the days ahead and to keep an eye 'out on the periphery'. Ironically; as I have been typing today's blog; I have just heard those enigmatic words "peripheral vision" mentioned in one of the programmes on the TV in the background! Is that a confirmation? I hope so!

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

DAY CONFERENCE: CLIMATE CHANGE?

Hello again folks! I received an interesting and invitation from the Reverend Philip Foster MA this morning w.r.t. a day long conference that is due to be held on Saturday 19th March 2011 in St. Ives; Cambridgeshire; England. The conference is entitled: "CLIMATE CHANGE? Who Is Paying? And For What?"

Speakers include Philip Powell [author of that informative  and well-written book: "While The Earth Endures"]; Roger Helmer [Conservative MEP]; Professor Stephen Bush [UKIP Advisor on Energy policy] and David Bellamy [well-known media personality; botanist; environmentalist and Global Warming skeptic] amongst many others. Here is the text of the letter that accompanied the above leaflet:

"The importance of Climate Change as an issue - with its economic, political and ethical ramifications - cannot be overstressed. The debate over the reality of human induced global warming is steeped in emotion, disinformation and hysteria. Wrong policies are having catastrophic consequences for the poorest people, both in the UK and globally. But what are the real causes [and effects] of climate change? What do scientists really know? And what is it costing? As 'Climate Week' begins, this Conference is a landmark event in the UK. The speakers are experts in their field with international reputations. It aims to open up a debate which has been suppressed by political fears of radical minority power bases. Not to continue the debate is incompatible with proper scientific process and, incidentally, a denial of democracy. This Conference is not to be missed. Come for the full day or as much as time permits."
[end quote]

There are many folks within the UKIP ranks who rightly question the hype and propaganda of the [human-caused] Global Warming lobby. This conference has a balanced guest list and will be very interesting. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

RED SEA CROSSING PRESENTATION

Hello again folks! Two interesting things happened today [amongst many others!]. The first was that my cousin in Israel - Joanna - emailed me an interesting presentation and the second is that I have today learned how to embed it in my blog instead of posting the link! The presentation that is of interest is entitled: "Moses & the Red Sea Crossing: Fact or Fiction". Here it is for your viewing; Berean investigation and perusal:


One should not be at all surprised to find evidence that the TORAH [Genesis to Deuteronomy] is literally; historically and 'scientifically' truthful. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

GLOBAL WARMING UPDATE

Hello again folks! My good friend and cohort in UKIP @ Wolverhampton - Barry Hodgson - sent me this interesting piece for this 'ol blog. I need add no more:

"I don't think enough can be said about the timing of this piece. Read to the end ...

Global Warming [source: The Washington Post]

"The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable."

I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - [over] 88 years ago!"

REVEALING REVELATION!

Hello again folks! These two 'YouTube' clips of footage from Egypt and our sun are - if nothing else - remarkable; especially in light of the famed prophecies of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in the Book of Revealings [Revelation]:


"Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." [Revelation 1:3]

I never saw this before in this text until tonight: Note in the above text ... blessed is the READER; the HEARER and the DOER [keeper]!!!

REMEMBERING DWIGHT PRYOR

Hello again folks! I received the latest edition of "In Touch" from Christians Friends of Israel [CFI] this morning and have just opened it up to find inside an A5 size letter announcing the recent death of someone I have always held in high regard: Dwight Pryor.

Here [repeated in full] is the text of that announcement as communicated by CFI-UK's Assistant Director Robin Benson:

"It is with a deep sense of loss that we write to tell you that this past Saturday afternoon, February 5th, our dear friend and co-worker, Dwight Pryor, passed into the presence of the Lord he loved and served so faithfully. As most of you will know, he had been unwell for some weeks since having a gallstone operation in early January. In an email received late Saturday night, his wife Keren Hannah wrote this:

Dear friends, Dwight's heart gave up the fight this morning at 11:00am [Saturday, 4:00pm UK] and he peacefully left us to celebrate Shabbat in our eternal home. Free of pain ... free to jump and run, to dance and sing at the top of his lungs. I'm sorry I'm not able to call each one personally, but please receive this notice from my heart. I believe that his rallying yesterday was an effort to indicate his farewell - the call from Heaven grew louder and the peace and Shalom was already covering him like a tallit [prayer shawl]. There was so much love surrounding us and I cherished his small responses. To echo what I wrote last week:

"I'm filled with gratitude for the peace/Shalom and the order that was evident around Dwight today. Heartfelt thanks to you for each of your prayers and caring thoughts that surrounded him, and Jean and myself, these past hours."

Thank you too for your prayers that will help to sustain his mother, Jean, his son Ben and his wife Erin and myself, who were all at his bedside this morning ... and all the family. "Now I know that the Lord has delivered His anointed one, answering him from His holy heavens with the mighty saving power of  His right hand ..." [Psalm 119]. In grief, along with all of us left behind, but celebrating the life of my beloved Dwight, KEREN. Baruch Din HaEmet - Blessed be the Righteous Judge."

Thank you to all of you who have been so faithfully praying for him, Keren, and the family. Please continue to do so now as they mourn his passing and also celebrate his life and ministry. Please also remember us here at CFI-UK as we cope with yet one more loss of someone who was dear to many of us ... it is so hard to bear on top of all the other bereavements we have faced in the last six weeks. The Lord bless you for your concern and support." [end quote]

I always remember Dwight's insightful and biblical commentaries and especially his teaching series entitled: "Behold The Man! - Discovering our Hebrew Lord, the Historical Jesus of Nazareth". We lose such wonderful teachers and exponents of the Word and I sometimes wonder: Where is the next generation of such marvellous folks? But we know the Lord ALWAYS provides!

BAD FRUIT RISING

Hello again folks! Jesus said: "You shall know them by their fruits ..." [Matthew 7:16]. He was, of course, talking about false prophets in context but He was also alluding to spiritual fruit[s] and by extension; their eternal value.I was thinking a bit this last week about true spiritual yearnings.If what we believe and what we follow means anything to us; we will want to share it with family; friends; strangers and enemies. We will want to persuade them of the benefits on both sides of the barrier of death. We will not try to coerce them; force them; threaten them or deceive them. Even our zeal would need to be put in check.

In all man-made religious organizations and structures ... folks [some honest ones too] will run around trying to earn brownie points; please their god and/or store up credits in their perception of the afterlife. Their motive may even be good but the fruit may not be. When we look at the absolute horror in which many folks these days express when True Christians try to put over their Message. Most believers will have zeal but they do not have to perform heroics in evangelizing in order to earn any favour with God. They have faith and relationship; not religion. They do it because they have something so good; they want others to have it too.

But when folks do things in the practice of their religion alone; their motives get clouded. They do things because they are told to. Because they have to in order to reach the standard or the necessary accrued good works to book their spot in their perception of heaven or the afterlife. Those things can include all the things that most people now use as their excuses to deny all and carry on regardless. Those things can include imposing theocracy in temporal government; murder; control; threats; persecution et al. These are those bad fruits of corruption that Jesus warned us about. Some who call themselves Christians do it and those followers of other faiths or no faith at all do it.

The real deal is the fruit of selflessness and genuine love and concern for those other souls that you would dearly love to come on board freely. But you leave the choice [and consequences] to them. Your desire is for their betterment irrespective of your position. You are not motivated for temporal gain or eternal rewards primarily - you leave that to the Judge to decide. Any belief or unbelief that does otherwise is 'bad fruit' to me. We need to keep our motives in check constantly.

MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT: TELFORD DAY CONFERENCE [SDHS]

Hello again folks! Hello and welcome to February 2011! I have just received this flyer and notification from SDHS [The Society For Distributing Hebrew Scriptures] regarding a forthcoming meeting over at Donnington Wood Baptist Church [DWBC] in Telford; Shropshire; England.

DWBC is a lovely fellowship about twenty [20] miles west-north-west of here and the SDHS do an absolutely marvellous job in getting the Word out in Hebrew to our far flung Jewish friends and those of us blessed enough to want to learn the Absolute language. So; if you are in the area; why not make a date and be blessed?
