"God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation…Therefore let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose."
    -- John Piper

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

    In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

Why is this picture important?

What is the importance of this picture?


Yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was actually in Libya, the first Russian leader in history to visit the North African country, creating a strategic alliance, signing numerous agreements, and negotiating a $2.5 billion arms sale to this enormous and historic enemy of Israel.

Are the last days approaching?  Are the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39 which foretell the rise of a dictator in Russia who forms strategic alliances Iran and Libya coming to pass?

Just food for thought.

  1. I surprised this is the first comment. I saw it the other day and immediately drew the connection with the end times gathering of nations against Israel. I have no idea where this places us in the end times scenario and we have probably been in ‘end times’ since the resurrection.

    What it does/should do is create an even greater urgency to spread the gospel. Then again, should it take dire ‘end times’ warnings to engergize believers towards evangelism?
