Four years worth of messages from our annual prophecy conferences.
Four unconditional and non-transferable covenants define God's relationship with Israel.
The Israeli Palestinian conflict is an often misunderstood political battleground where facts are mixed with opinion, preference, and prejudice. There's so much confusion around the conflict that we want to bring light to what is truth and what is myth. What issues are actually standing in the way of bringing peace between the Israelis and Palestinians?
If ever there is a time to return to first principles concerning the nation of Israel and its claim to the land, it is now. While the Sharon administration continues its unilateral disengagement policy that began in August, Palestinian leaders wait in the wings, buying time with promises to rein in the terrorism of Hamas and other indigenous groups bred on violence. Their promises are still unfulfilled.
Naim Ateek believes you cannot take the Bible literally. He has a particular problem with the Torah (Pentateuch), which he considers a “Zionist text,” and the books of Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, and 1 and 2 Kings—all of which confirm God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people.
The visiting preacher opened his message with the following statement: “Today I want to tell you how to destroy the Jewish people. The title of his sermon, in fact, stood out boldly in the church bulletin: “How to Destroy the Jewish People.”
The world has come full circle. Seventy-five years ago, Adolf Hitler was gearing up the greatest killing machine the world had ever known, implementing the strategy of his book, Mein Kampf (My Struggle). Its thesis was the elimination of what he deemed the single greatest threat to civilized humanity: “the Jewish peril.”
Most people in the world don’t know much about Hanukkah—they should. All most of us see in it are those quaint eight-branched candelabra which adorn the outside of synagogues or are seen in public displays depicting seasonal Jewish themes.
À l’époque du Nouveau Testament, les patriarches du peuple israélite étaient identifiés par des noms qui avaient des significations précises. En Genèse 17.5, Dieu changea le nom d’Abram (« père exalté ») en celui d’Abraham (« père d’une multitude »). Genèse 17.15 dit que Dieu changea également le nom de la femme d’Abraham, Sarai (« ma princesse »), en Sarah (« princesse ») parce qu’elle allait devenir une « mère des nations ».
L’incarnation de Jésus-Christ, et à la base de celle-ci sa naissance virginale, devrait être au cœur de la période de Noël. Qu’une femme ait conçu un bébé venant de Dieu et que Dieu soit devenu chair sont deux vérités que les chrétiens qui croient en la Bible n’accepteront jamais de voir remises en cause.
