News roundup 8 June 2011

God says in Hosea 4:6 that his people die because they lack knowledge. Knowing world events clues us in to

where we are on the Biblical, prophetic time line. News should prompt us to pray for two things: that the eyes of the lost and deceived are opened to God’s love as

expressed through the life and death and life of Yeshua and that God’s Kingdom come

on earth.

Why so much Israel news? God always meant Israel to be an example to the nations, an example of His righteousness, His justice, His mercy, His love.

She is also a signpost. Consider this. Zion, God’s other name of Jerusalem, means

“signpost.” Messiah draws nigh. The events in Zion speak to that.
