From Ben’s Desk (22nd February)
As I have reflected on the inhumane atrocity that took place this past week, when 21 innocent Coptic Christians men were savagely and ruthlessly murdered by ISIS, I have been deeply saddened. We need to take note of this growing militant warfare against the Western World by radical Islamic terrorists. Almost every European country has had to step up its vigilance and the free world is being help to ransom by these mad men. The Word of God clearly states in Matt 24:6 “You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, nation will rise against nation, you will be handed over to be persecuted, because of the increase of wickedness the love of most will grow cold…”
These are signs of the end times. Not that I am in any way suggesting this great event is about to take place, but we would be foolish to ignore the signs given in Scripture. That day, the Bible says, will come like a thief in the night, when it is least expected.
Let us all be certain that we are right with God through a personal faith and trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Let us also pray for and speak to others, that they too can share in God’s wonderful salvation.
Rev 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
