As I see current world events accelerating, thereby heralding the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, rather than becoming dispirited or anxious I become excited.
I have written in previous articles about the fact that Christians have been given specific scriptural directives from our Sovereign God regarding our interaction with our Jewish brethren. He has grafted us into the Olive Tree, through Messiah, and asks us to lovingly embrace our older brethren, they whose ‘warfare is nearly at an end’ (Isaiah 40:2).
In 2013 a terrible fire tore through the Blue Mountains town of Winmalee, leaving 200 families homeless. As this town was very close to my home I prepared to leave to spend time with my family nearer Sydney. As I was backing out of my driveway with mixed feelings of leaving my home, my mobile phone rang.
Some people ask me why I feel the need to go to places like Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland and to Babi Yar in Ukraine where 33,000 Jews were murdered in one day. Why go to specifically hear wretched, horrific memories from those who were Jewish children in Ukraine during the holocaust
