  1. So, it is reported, said Mao Tse Tung. Here's a question for Christians, Was he right?

    As I take note of how the Media and the Government of the UK simply stonewall the wishes of the people, I incline to think that might is right. But that is the flesh speaking. Insomuch, it seems, as they control public narrative and have powers of enforcement, there is a temptation to suppose that nothing can be done. Some in frustration, under such conditions in the past, have taken up arms. 

    But "what saith the scripture?"

    "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." 2 Cor. 10:4.

    Jehoshaphat's powerful prayer expresses the same truth.

    "O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might? so that none is able to withstand thee?" 2 Chron. 20:6.

    I believe it was Robert McCheyne who said, "A holy man is a mighty weapon in the hands of the LORD."

    To your prayers and your Bibles then brothers and sisters in Christ and let the spiritual ne'er-do-wells look to their going.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  2. There is great confusion in the real church regarding the truths of prophecy. Is there such a thing as the rapture of the saints? Wil the church go through the tribulation? Will the rapture be pre, mid or post-trbulation?

    I am not going to answer all the above here but there is one essential truth without which all must remain error or confusion. It is a truth which was probably first denied by the Roman Catholic Church with the denial continuing among Protestants even after the Reformation.

    Here it is - God will restore the nation of Israel! Not merely save Jews into the body of Christ, but restore Israel nationally. This is so abundantly clear in the Old Testament prophets and the Psalms and elsewhere and yet is hid from the eyes of multitudes of preachers.

    Get it right and you will begin to make sense of prophetic truth both in the OT and in the NT. Get it wrong and you had better keep it simple and just preach the gospel, assuming, of course, you have understood at least that much.
