Straws in the Wind
by Samuel T. Carson
It is now two thousand years (approx) since the time of our Lord's first advent.
It was two thousand years from Adam to Abraham and two thousand years from Abraham to Christ in His first advent, and now another two thousand years have come and gone. Is there any significance in this, or is it just a straw in the wind?
The references in the New Testament to our Lord’s second advent pre-suppose that when the time comes, Israel will be in the land! Since A.D. 70 when the Romans destroyed the city and scattered the people this was not the case. But it is the case today, as it has been since 1948. Again, is there any significance in this, or is it just another straw in the wind?
FIVE DAYS before he became the president of the United States, John F. Kennedy asked evangelist Billy Graham to have lunch and play golf with him. After the game they were driving back to the Kennedy home when the president—elect stopped the car, turned to Billy and said, ‘I want to ask you something. Do you believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?‘ The evangelist replied, 'I most certainly do.‘ Kennedy then asked, ‘Well, does my church believe it?‘ (he was a Roman Catholic). ‘They have it in their creeds,‘ answered Billy. 'They don't preach it,‘ said Kennedy. 'They don't tell us much about it. I'd like to know what you think.‘ And so Billy Graham explained what the Bible said about this great prophetic event. (Sources include: Billy Graham, "Just As I Am" p.395).

There Will Be A Millennium
by Rev. E. Buckhurst Pinch
THERE is a certain group of teachers today - and some of them in respected evangelical circles - who are making bold assertions, which are ill-founded, and without Scriptural authority.
The writings of these A-Millennialist teachers show very considerable disagreement among themselves. Most of them, however, apparently subscribe to three propositions: (1) that there is to be no millennium; (2) that there is no future for Israel; and (3) that all the prophecies of the Old Testament are to be spiritually realised in the Church.
These three assumptions are, of course, bound up together. To say that there is no millennium means that there is no future for Israel, and if there be no fulfilment of these predictions for Israel then we may assume that they are to be fulfilled as all prophecy must be, and fulfilled in this case in the Church. These three suggestions, therefore, stand or fall together.

by Rev. RONALD J. PARK
CRISIS, climax zero hour, the crash! Is that how it is to be? Is there something catastrophic round the corner? Are we sitting on a volcano grumbling to erupt? But isn’t it all very stupid to talk like that?
Scaremongering is a mean business and we want none of it. Yet - and this is a remarkable thing - if you were to confide your fears to the man in the street, he wouldn’t think you mad! He is very worried himself when he thinks about it. The press, TV and radio pour the whole wretched story of a chaotic world into our laps. We cannot escape it. The violent insanity of our age threatens to undo civilisation and throw us back to an early barbarism where high principle, moral standards, common civility and God himself have no meaning. History, of course, is a series of crises. That’s how we fix dates in our mind. Crises tumble one on another thick and fast, or history books would be as stuffy as the multiplication table.
Is something quite extraordinary likely to happen in our time - a crisis of crises? If we try to interpret history, one guess is as good as another: and if we try to piece the confusing bits of current events together to make a pattern, we get nowhere. Are we entirely at the mercy of human wisdom to discern the future - man’s wisdom has proved pretty threadbare - or is there some authoritative source to enlighten our poor, bewildered minds about what it is all coming too? Yes, GOD! From Adam onwards God has divulged His secrets to men He could trust. God told His prophets in the Old Testament, who in turn told the people, of sure and certain eventualities. The people for the most part could not have cared less. They ridiculed the communications as the fantasy of disordered minds, and did some of God’s prophets to death for their pains. But it all came about just as God had said and passed into history. The fact is, God is not uncommunicative. "Surely the Lord does nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). But we are born cynics, our inherent belief in a communicating God blinds us to His truth. We stumble on in our darkness, which becomes the more dense by reason of the stupid prejudices we pick up by the way. It is not difficult to believe the words of St. Paul, "The god of this world (the devil) has blinded the minds of unbelievers" (2 Cor. 4:4). But the light of God is the answer to the darkness of man. We become intelligent and understanding when we abase ourselves before the God only wise and let Him teach us from His Word, the Holy Scriptures.
