From the editor
Jeremiah 29:11-13 says, "For surely I know the plans I have
for you says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a
future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will
hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; when you search for me with
all of your heart."
I know that God is true to His Word, and when He states that
He has good plans for us, and not evil ones -– He means it! If you have become
cynical and unable to readily express trust to others (including the one who
loves you most) maybe you can ask God to put a new song in your heart this month
-– even praise unto Him.
Whilst the world tells us to chase our visions and dreams
(and I believe they have their place and are important too), the most important
aspect of life is to be able to say at the end of the day 'Thank you Lord, I
am growing!' As we let God provide the benchmark by which we measure our
growth, we will be satisfied.
This month we are missing the insights of Rebecca Capell who
is 'sailing to Cameroon' with her family aboard the Doulos. We introduce
Allan Franklin, author and journalist -– and friend of my father, Barry Smith.
We will be printing excerpts from Allan's new publication "EU -– Final
World Empire". Patrick Ikiua's article reminds us of national values, which
are often pushed aside or even trodden on, in the arena of immigration and the
illegitimate PC culture.
George and Eileen Anderson's delightful article about
belief or non belief in the rapture (a rather serious topic -– which has an
affect on the way one chooses to live their Christian life), whilst possibly
causing some to chuckle and others to grimace -– the message contained is
Christian greetings and love
