Newsletter 120 Summer 2016

 “….who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped the creature, rather than the creator.”

As we draw near to the end of this age we are to expect a flood of evil. Man will prefer to listen to human wisdom, which is in reality guided by Satan, than to the wisdom of God. If we understand that the Bible says what it means and means what it says there is no doubt about the character of the present age from beginning to end. There will be wars and rumours of wars …. famines, pestilence and earthquakes. The gospel will be preached to the world in troubled times.

It is not for the church to build the kingdom of God on earth. That will come when Jesus Christ returns. We are called to be faithful witnesses despite the opposition of the world. Troubled times and tribulation are our expectation.

In the past Trumpet Sounds has described Christian activity in the political realm as fighting a rear guard action to hold on to what ground we can. It is the holding back of the flood of evil while accepting that many battles will be lost. But it is possible that some battles will be won and some victories gained. Therefore it was a great encouragement to hear that the Supreme Court has ruled the Scottish ‘Named Person’ Scheme as unlawful.  Opposition to the scheme was led by the Christian Institute.

Under the scheme, all children in Scotland would have been allocated a ‘Named Person’, such as a teacher or health worker, to act as a state-appointed guardian. The nominated individual would have been given access to the child’s confidential records and be expected to report any concerns to the police.

The Court stated that the data sharing provisions of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act breach the right to a private and family life under article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The Act would have allowed sensitive information about the family to be widely shared without the parent’s or the child’s knowledge. Especially vulnerable to the provisions of the Act would be those who did not share the State’s view of the world.

The Scottish government will have to amend the Act to ensure that families do not suffer from unwarranted invasion of their privacy by the State. Pray that instead of amendment the scheme is scrapped.

“I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember your wonders of old.  I will also meditate on all your work, and talk of all your deeds.”

In troubled times we need to meditate on the goodness of God. He is our strength and shield. He is the one who we can always trust. In these last days there will be many deceptions. Meditating on the word of God will help to protect us from the lies of our enemy.

Newsletter 118 Winter 2016

As the end of this age draws near we expect that each new year will be more turbulent than the one which has passed. Global instability will increase. There will be wars, famines, pestilence and earthquakes. Men’s hearts will fail with fear of what is coming on the world. As Christians, we are a privileged people for we look forward to the ‘blessed hope’ of our Lord’s return. On the next page there is a reprint of Corrie Ten Boom’s testimony that in the time of trial she received the mighty inner strength of the Holy Spirit. Let us approach the future confident that whatever lies ahead the Lord will give us strength to stand and overcome. Read the Newsletter here.

Newsletter 117 Autumn 2015

Did you wake up on the morning of the 28th September to watch the moon turn red? In southern England it was a cloudless night with a clear view of the stars. As the shadow of the earth obscured the moon it did turn red.

Was the Tetrad of eclipses significant? We are aware of the historical events which occurred around the time of past Tetrads. In each case the timing of those events was only loosely connected with the eclipses. The present outbreak of violence in Jerusalem could be the start of something significant [see the article headed Palestine later in this newsletter]. We will have to wait and see.

Newsletter 116 Summer 2015

“But the end of all things is at hand therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers”. 1 Peter 4: 7. Peter wrote these words nearly 2000 years ago and yet the end has not come. Today Christians are likely to respond using Peter’s words in his second letter, “Where is the promise of His coming?” 2 Peter 3: 4. Within the Christian church many now scoff at those who teach on the Second Coming. To focus on the return of Christ is seen as a distraction.

It is in this context that, prayerfully, I believe the time has come to write the following article on the Fall of Babylon. It is a warning of things that are soon to come about. Within the article there is a challenge, do we love what God hates? When these things come to pass will we respond in fear or will we rejoice? Are we in love with the world or do we set our hope on the heavenly city? In that respect the article on the last page is a challenge to us all.

Newsletter 115 Spring 2015

Welcome to the delayed Spring edition of this newsletter. While seeking a word from the Lord on what to include in this edition it became clear that production had to wait until after the UK General Election. The result could have been much worse. But there is still cause for concern. Praying before the election, it seemed that an issue which will come to the fore is ‘freedom of speech’. Under the newly elected government there will soon be a significant curtailment of our freedom to practice and express our Christian faith. Previous governments have eroded the freedom which we once took for granted. In the coming five years this process will be accelerated.

The autumn edition of Trumpet Sounds proposed that 2015 will prove to be a significant year for the fulfilment of prophecy. A likely economic crisis in the US will change the shape of global politics. In the last issue I shared my thoughts on the seven year cycle which is forming a pattern for these last days. I believe that the next seven years will be marked by increasing terrorism.

The Autumn 2014 edition of Trumpet Sounds is now published on the website.

World events are moving fast towards a conclusion. The day of the Lord is rapidly approaching. Are we ready? In these last days our Lord’s command is to watch. In the Garden of Gethsemane He said to the disciples; “Watch and pray lest you enter into temptation”. As the day approaches there will be turmoil in the world and false prophets in the church. Many will fall away from the truth. If ever there was a time to which Jesus’ words apply it is now.
The purpose of writing and speaking on prophecy is to encourage Christians to ‘watch’, to be prayerful and vigilant and above all look up, keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, who is able to bring us through to be with Him in glory.

The Winter edition of Trumpet Sounds is now posted.

Will 2014 prove significant in the outworking of end time prophecy? With the sequence of blood red moons and solar eclipses which will take place both this year and in 2015 there are many who think it will. This edition of Trumpet Sounds looks at two events which could occur this year.

The global economy is an area where dramatic change could take place at any time. It is built like a house of cards. One jolt and the lot will tumble down. The recovery we see today is founded on a massive increase in debt. The best cards have already been played. If something occurs which causes a jolt there is little that can be done to save the situation.

Faced with consistent policy failure both at home and abroad, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are desperate to forge a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. To what lengths will they go to twist Israel’s arm? By the end of 2014 Israel will be more on her own than ever before, especially if she has to take direct action against Iran.
