Editorial

By Sherly Isaac

Last year in the month of December one man of God saw a dream and he woke up hearing the words, “rivers of blood”. He said that bad days are ahead for those who do not believe in Jesus and good days are ahead for those who believe and walk in the ways of the Lord.

Throughout the course of history human disasters were seen experienced and talked about. But today whole world is heading towards a place where violence, turmoil and chaos are increasing day by day. Persecutions have been rising in many parts of the world. Six years back when I left India there was practically no persecution and very few cases were against Christians. But today all over India persecution has spread like wild fire. A nation that calls itself the largest democratic nation of the world has now no tolerance for other religions. Now a days not only Christians but Muslims also are being butchered mercilessly. But the present Government did not take any actions against those Hindu fundamentalists who are killing innocent civilians. India was famous for its hospitality, but now they have forgotten their own tradition.

Hindustan Times reported that, “Mr. Powel has rejected the recommendation of a statutory US commission to brand India a violator of religious freedom.” We heard about Saddam Hussein as a dictator who killed his own people. Indian Prime Minister Mr. Bajpayee is nothing better than Mr. Saddam Hussein by any means. Palestine leader Mr. Arafat has given shelter and protection to terrorists who terrorize Israel. From more than two decades Pakistan has been terrorizing India sending terrorist in Kashmir and killing people. Sudanese have their own problems.

If you look at the whole world you can understand how people are suffering and going through pain sufferings and tears because of violence and terrorism. But there is a God who wants to bless our lives and who wants to give His peace to us in our lives. Bible says in Isaiah 62:4, “You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; For the LORD delights in you, And your land shall be married.”

My dear friend, God wants to bless your life. May be you are going through terrible trials, problems and tears. You might have lost your loved ones and may be shedding bitter tears today. But look to Jesus who came in this world to give His blessings and peace to us. He died on the cruel cross for our deliverance so that we could receive His peace that this world cannot give. But on the other side Bible says in Isaiah 48:22, "There is no peace," says the LORD, "for the wicked." As long as you reject God and His holy ways, you will have no peace in your life but if you are reconciled with God, He will fill you with His peace – the peace that passes all understanding. It does not mean that you will be exempted from all the pain and sufferings. No, but in the midst of pain and sorrow you will live in perfect peace. The Bible says in Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

We do not know what tomorrow will bring for us, but we can have the peace of God in our lives. If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then please pray this prayer with me:

Loving Jesus, I am a sinner, please forgive and forget all my sins and give me a new life. Fill me with your peace that the world cannot give. Let me live in your perfect peace. I invite you in my heart as my Lord and Savior. I pray this prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen.

You may be thinking about the current situation of Iraq war, whether the Bible speaks anything about it or not. One received an article which I am publishing in this newsletter. You can read more articles like this at: This address

God's Word Against Babylon

By Jim Bramlett - Mar 22, 2003

Dear friends:

I was praying today for some insights about the current state of world affairs and where we are in prophecy. I picked up a Bible and it just fell open to Isaiah chapter 13. To my shock, it was about war against Babylon! Here are some excerpts in the New Living Translation. See my emphasis in ALL CAPS:

1, Isaiah son of Amoz received this message concerning the destruction of Babylon:
2, “See the flags waving as the enemy attacks. Cheer them on, O Israel! Wave to them as they march against Babylon to DESTROY THE PALACES (MARCH 21, 2003) of the high and mighty ( SADDAM, HIS CRUEL SONS, ETC).
3, I, the Lord, have assigned this task to these armies, and they will rejoice when I am exalted. I have called them to satisfy my anger.”
4, Hear the noise on the mountains! Listen, as the armies march! It is the noise and the shout of MANY NATIONS (OVER 40 NOW). The Lord Almighty HAS BROUGHT THEM HERE to form an army.
5, They came from COUNTRIES FAR AWAY (THAT'S FOR SURE). They are the Lord’s weapons; they carry his anger with them and will destroy the whole land.
6, Scream in terror, for the Lord’s time has arrived -- the time for the Almighty to destroy.
7, Every arm is paralyzed with fear. Even the strongest hearts melt
8, and are afraid. Fear grips them with terrible pangs, like those of a woman about to give birth. They look helplessly at one another as the FLAMES OF THE BURNING CITY reflect on their faces.
9, For see, the day of the Lord is coming—the terrible day of his fury and fierce anger. The land will be destroyed and all the sinners with it.
10, The heavens will be BLACK above them. No light will shine from stars or sun or moon. (BILLOWS OF BLACK SMOKE FROM BURNING OIL WELLS AND TRENCHES)
11, “I, the Lord, will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their sin. I will crush the arrogance of the proud and the haughtiness of the mighty (SADDAM, HIS CRUEL SONS, ETC.).
12, Few will be left alive when I have finished my work. People will be as scarce as gold—more rare than the gold of Ophir.
13, For I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move from its place. I, the Lord Almighty, will show my fury and fierce anger....” Babylon’s days are numbered; its time of destruction will soon arrive.

NOTE: We may not be seeing everything in this chapter fulfilled in the very near future, but this may be the beginning of God's Word against Babylon.

I also realize that the end-time Babylon may not be ancient Babylon, but the wording, the timing, and me opening my Bible today after prayer seems more than coincidence.

Verse 9 says, "For see, the day of the Lord is coming." Is coming -- future tense. It may be very near.
