The world faces many threats of armed conflict today. Highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean Peninsular, in the South China Sea and in European nations bordering Russia. Peaceful coexistence between the major powers is in jeopardy. Furthermore, extremist religious terrorism can strike anywhere – even in Australia,…Details
Prophecy confirms the Bible is reliable
Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible, let alone believe in its contents. There are some churches which claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs. Other churches (some very large ones) claim that the authority of their leaders, or their claimed possession of Holy Spirit gifts and guidance, surpass the authority of Bible teaching.
The Bible claims to be the word of God – God’s inspired revelation of Himself and His Son, and His plan for the world. This claim is either entirely true or it’s a lie. The Bible’s claim to reliable truth is confirmed by its many prophecies that have actually come to pass – particularly predictions about Jesus Christ and God’s people Israel.
In the Old Testament there is a whole library of prophetic information about Jesus Christ – his birth, life, death, resurrection and the prospect of his kingship of the world. All of this is confirmed in the New Testament, plus the emboldening transformation his resurrection had on his formerly frightened and disillusioned disciples.
As to Israel, the Old Testament predicted their scattering and persecution among the nations and their regathering to the Holy Land, all of which have proved dramatically true. Today, some 6.67 million Jews originating from many nations of the world now live in the almost 71-year-old modern state of Israel.
These facts give us assurance that predicted events that are still future to us today will also come to pass – notably Christ’s return and God’s Kingdom on earth. They also confirm that the Bible has the authority to teach us how to live our lives now – today.

The people of Israel are described in the Old Testament as “God’s witnesses” (Isaiah 43 vv10&12). God, we’re told, chose Israel not because of their importance but because He loved them. The Old and New Testaments contain an amazingly candid record of their history, with their flaws and failings plainly revealed – a consistent record…Details
The world faces many apparently insoluble problems today – unsustainable population growth, climate change, increasing water and food shortages, economic and financial stress, worsening social unrest and violent lawlessness. Responsible national governments have cause to be deeply worried. Take the exponential world population growth in the 20th and 21st centuries for a start*. From less…Details
It’s a sad fact of life that suffering impacts upon virtually every human being at some stage and in varying degrees. It’s also true that bad things happen to ‘good’ people and good things happen to ‘bad’ people. A disturbing feature of life today is that huge numbers of people are suffering poverty, starvation or…Details

Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected from death. For a start, no one could produce a corpse to prove otherwise, even though the religious rulers of the day would dearly have loved to do so. Christ’s frightened and disillusioned company of disciples were transformed…Details
Unlikely as it may seem in view of today’s world being troubled by so many tensions and conflicts, the world is destined for a time of peace on an unprecedented scale. How will this be achieved? So many well-meaning human efforts have been made to accomplish this and yet have failed. Today, highly dangerous situations…Details
Did you realise that Jesus Christ is going to come a second time to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world? Ordinarily, so called “world leaders” come and go – whether good, bad or mediocre. None of them actually “lead” the whole world. They are all fallible and all temporary. Mortality inevitably takes…Details
