In Mortal Danger: major cities targeted?Written by David Ben-Ariel

The CHOICE is ours to make. God help us to CHOOSE LIFE!
4Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters! They have forsaken LORD, They have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward. 5Why should you be stricken again? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick [the government], And whole heart faints [national morale]. 6From sole of foot even to head, There is no soundness in it, But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, Or soothed with ointment. 7Your country is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire; Strangers devour your land in your presence; And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. 8So daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, As a hut in a garden of cucumbers, As a besieged city. 9Unless LORD of hosts Had left to us a very small remnant, We would have become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah.
David Ben-Ariel, an American author who has travelled widely and who has lived throughout Israel, shares a special focus on the Middle East and great interest in Jerusalem, reflected in hard-hitting articles that help others improve their understanding of that troubled region.

My wake-up call: Heat up or else...Written by Chris van der Walt
Continued from page 1
I realize now that "following path of least resistance" is only right thing to do if you're not denying God while doing it. And "turning other cheek" has to be done with love and a prayer in your heart. And "do unto others..." we shouldn't do because we're expecting them to do to us, but because we have Love of God in our hearts.
But maybe most important thing that I've learnt recently is how little I actually know. The more I learn, more I realize how little I actually know about God's Grace, Power and Love.
Life's a journey. And what a ride with Him at wheel!
