Both the world’s media and the Christian media have been prolific about the announcement by President Trump, on December 6 last year, that the United States recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I don’t propose adding to the debate that has ensued, except to say that since I was born after 1948, when the State of Israel came into...

Many church fellowships are not experiencing growth. Indeed, I believe that many are experiencing decline. Although I am predominantly referencing churches in New Zealand, I feel the same is experienced in Australia and further afield. 

I write this to follow on from our last post, “The Apple of His Eye”, where I made the comment that...

This year was a particularly important milestone for Jerusalem – the 50th anniversary of its reunification under Israeli sovereignty, gained during the Six Day War in 1967...

As most are aware, last December 23 the nations of the world, led by New Zealand, passed an anti-Israel UN resolution (Resolution 2334). The resolution had a particular emphasis on God’s special place – Jerusalem. This was nothing less than defiance of the Living God. The resolution denied a connection between the Jewish people and Jerusal...

The last two weeks or so have demonstrated how the hand of God can be seen in world affairs as they affect Israel. What this means is, He is a God who answers prayer. Perhaps though, it’s time to take stock of how, as the Christian community, we can be more and more effective in critical issues involving the treatment of Israel on the worl...

January 15 is the next critical date for Israel. Media reports are that representatives from “some 70 countries” have been invited to meet in Paris for a ‘Middle East peace conference’. This will be an attempt once again to divide Israel. (See our blogs of 3 December and 24 December if you are not familiar with events concerning Israel tha...

Today the leadership of New Zealand has crossed a line. Israel and the US under a Donald Trump administration may take no notice of the evil UN resolution sponsored by New Zealand and passed this morning (NZ time), attempting to outlaw Israel’s settlement of parts of the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria – part of the very land given...

Any country that seeks to divide Israel will answer to God. As New Zealanders who understand the Scriptural injunction that the land of Israel must not be divided, we are presented right now with an opportunity, indeed an obligation, to pray fervently for both Israel and our own nation.

Why the urgency? Because the clock is ticking. Th...

Steven Spielberg once said: “As a Jew I am aware of how important the existence of Israel is for the survival of us all. And because I am proud of being Jewish, I am worried by the growing anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in the world.”

And God once said: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest …..”...

Even here in New Zealand, a dividing line is beginning to appear within the Church in the position people are taking in relation to God’s people, the Jews and His land, Israel. Unfortunately, this is inevitable since New Zealand, including much of the Church, typically follows the developing trends of the Western world.

Not only is anti-Sem...
