Brian Hook on a stable and prosperous Middle East

The Middle East has been the hottest spot for continual conflict since the dawn of man. Countless wars and constant tension have been part of life for those living in the region. Many have tried to bring peace, but rarely has it been sustainable.

The biggest challenge in the modern Middle East is Iran. Whether interfering in Iraq, threatening Israel, or stoking violence across the region, the Islamic regime has been a constant thorn in the side of peacemakers. The most recent attempt to bring stability to the region is being made by envoy Brian Hook. He wants an actual treaty with the nation that passes the United States Senate, not a fragile executive action by the United Nations Security Council as we got in 2015.

His hopes are slim, but he’s sticking to his guns by calling out the problem they pose in stark terms.

U.S. seeking to negotiate a treaty with Iran

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-nuclear-iran-hook/u-s-seeking-to-negotiate-a-treaty-with-iran-idUSKCN1LZ1Y8Hook said Iran posed an international threat to peace and security that went beyond the six major powers that signs the initial nuclear deal. European and Asian countries have been trying to salvage the nuclear deal despite new U.S. sanctions against Tehran.

“If we want to have a stable and prosperous Middle East it starts with constraining Iran,” Hook said.

Psalm 77:11 – wonders of old

Psalm 77:11 wonders of old

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. – Psalm 77:11

Psalms are loaded with the wisdom of the ages past but often point to the universal truths we must all remember today. In this particular verse, the psalmist reminds us that we live in a wonderful world, one created in perfection and perpetuated through the workings of the Holy Spirit. We can look around and see he wonders that were made for His glory. It’s a gift that all too often gets pushed aside as random or insignificant.

The importance of Ephesians 6:12

Published

The importance of Ephesians 612

The Bible must be read throughout and everything should be taken in context rather than as individual passages, though some may bring meaning to those who seek a special word. Nonetheless, Ephesians 6:12 stands out as a verse that acts as a warning throughout all of time.

Even in the days when Paul wrote to the Ephesians, there was evil at work in the world that was spreading to the highest level of government. This trend has been and always will be until Jesus Christ is on His throne, but it holds special meaning to us now if you believe as many do that we are in the last days.

The buildup to this point has been gradual but has accelerated in the last seven decades and is manifesting itself in ways that are pulling more and more people into a state of uncertainty that is alarming. In context, this verse is clear in its purpose. We might be able to defend ourselves against each other, but against principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of the world, there is only one defense.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

It doesn’t matter who you are. Guns won’t save you. Storing food won’t save you. You could be the strongest person with a group of people to protect you and it will not be enough against the evil that will come for us because it is not man against man but the forces of evil against the people. The only protection is the full Armor of God that Paul writes about so eloquently.

Those of you who are preparing for the bad times ahead can do nothing on your own to protect you, for they are not after your body. They’re after your soul. They want to break you, to make you succumb to their will through fear of punishments. They will threaten with loss of lifestyle, loss of security, loss of freedom, and even loss of life. The only protection you have is the Armor of God. It may help to protect you in this world but that is only important in allowing you to do God’s Will. Many will die quickly when the end comes and only the deepest faith, the shield of which Paul writes, can keep you strong enough to make it through when they come to break you.

Know your enemy. It is not men. It is the powers that rule even the rulers of the land. With this understanding, we can find the strength given to us through the Holy Spirit to stay true through our end. By staying true, the end becomes our new beginning.

John 5:24 – passed from death unto life

John 524 passed from death unto life

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. – John 5:24 (KJV)

This is the promise, plain and simple. It is said in other places, particularly in John, but the words of Yeshua are as clear as they can be. Hear His word, believe on Him who sent Yeshua to this world, and you will live beyond death. Our lives are short. Having this in mind, how would you like to spend eternity?
