There is a lot of rapid movement today with the events in Paris and the downing of the Russian Jet by Turkey. With all these things taking place, I am inviting you to read a chapter from the book The Great Nations of Today by A.T. Jones that I believe offers a Biblical context for the current climate. It speaks to the Adventist pioneer understanding of Daniel 11 and offers a very comprehensive understanding of Daniel 11 in relation to the Seven Trumpets. This knowledge is not well known to many Adventists today but I believe it is worth revisiting and meditiating and praying about. Here is the article: Seven Trumpets, King of the North and the Eastern Question
I had the opportunity to have Pr David Gates speak in one the churches I was pastoring in 2006. He became aware of our Maranatha Media website and found the book Identity Wars which he downloaded and shared with his family. I had the chance to meet Pr Gates in Brisbane two weeks ago and had the opporunity to meet him again. He greeted me warmly and gave me a brotherly hug. I appreciated greatly his energetic spirit and his love for the truth. The messages he shared were encouraging and a blessing. He reaffirmed his support for the identity Wars booklet and was happy to share this material where ever it could be a blessing. Here is a recording of his summary of the book Identity Wars from 2007. David Gates Speaks about Identity Wars
The book is now available in 11 Languages and there is also an English audio version to download. You can download the book, audio and video series here
Imagine being compelled by a desire to be close to every single person you know. Maybe if you had lots of money and showered people with gifts you could certainly get people’s attention. Yet would they be close to you? Would they not be further away from you because the gifts you give become a replacement for yourself and your friends would desire your gifts more than they would desire you and your company. Such was the experience of the prodigal son when his money ran out. [Read More]
