Written by | January 10, 2019 | 0
If, then, you obey the commandments that I enjoin upon you this day, loving Hashem your God and serving Him with all your heart and soul, I will grant the rain for your land in season, the early rain and the late. Deuteronomy 11:13 (The Israel Bible™) A view of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) from Mt. Arbel. (Credit: Shutterstock) Prayers for rain seemed to have been answered this week as the heavens over Israel opened up this week bringing much needed rain to the drought-stricken region. Beginning on Tuesday and continuing steadily for two days, the heavy rains were accompanied by falling temperatures. Most of the rain fell in the north, revitalizing the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) the main source of Israel’s drinking water. The level of the Kinneret on Wednesday was recorded at 214.24

An NPP Communicator in the Ellembelle District,Mr.Samuel Erzoah, has refuted allegations in some media outlets that he issued death threats on radio against the deceased Founder of Cross of Calvary Healing and Deliverance Ministry Rev.Anthony Kwame Nyame at Teleku-Bokazo. According to him,he never threatened the Rev.Nyame with death when the two were engaged in heated verbal exchanges on West End Radio at Esiama on October 07,2018 over a piece of land by the .road side at Teleku-Bokazo. Mr.Erzoah denied the statement that “if Pastor Nyame does not kill him,he will do it” adding that it was a fabrication to associate him with the demise of the Pastor some few days after the two were embroiled in some petty squabbles over that piece of land. Readers will recall that Mr.Erzoah accused

Written by | January 1, 2019 | 0
The Lord said to Moses, “When you take the census of the people of Israel, then each shall give a ransom for his life to the Lord when you number them, that there be no plague among them when you number them. Each one who is numbered in the census shall give this: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as an offering to the Lord.” (Exodus 30:11-14) Each day at the Kotel (Western Wall), the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray, thousands of Jews pour their hearts out to God. (Credit: Seth Aronstam/Israel 365 Calendar) The Bible warns against counting the Jewish population – for fear that they would begin to doubt their influence based on numerical strength – yet despite this, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics, Israel’s

“Such is the story of heaven and earth when they were created. When Hashem made earth and heaven.” Genesis 2:4 (The Israel Bible™) Illustrative: Earth at the dawn of creation. (Credit: Shutterstock.com) A new book written by a scholar of Judaism specifically for evangelicals, claims to bridge the gap separating science and religion, in particular regarding the contradiction between evolution and Genesis. Lester L. Grabbe is a retired American scholar and Emeritus Professor of Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism at the University of Hull, England. In his book, Grabbe asserts that “religion and science are not necessarily incompatible and they can exist side by side harmoniously so long as the respective adherents do not poach on the others’ territory.” The book focuses on how science

Written by | January 1, 2019 | 0
An Accra-based man of God, King Kweku Williams, aka Prophet Solomon, has predicted doom for pastors in the country in 2019, if they don’t rise up in prayer and do the right things before God. Sounding very serious, Prophet Solomon warned that, besides deaths among many pastors in 2019, a very prominent pastor (name withheld),who is widely known and respected in Ghana and beyond, might lose his life if men of God do not rise up in prayer for themselves and Ghana as a whole. “His (the prominent Man of God) death would shock and sadden the entire nation, especially the Christendom, considering his fame.”. However, if the Clergy in the country would rise up in prayer, he pleaded, these deaths could be averted. Prophet Solomon revealed that, due to a strong quest for power among some politicians,

2019: You are rising again!

Written by | January 1, 2019 | 0
This is your year of rising again! You have been pushed down. You were defeated, dethroned and dejected. You were rejected, wounded and mocked. Your hope, dreams and aspirations were dashed and trampled upon. And now you have totally given up. Listen something is now being done about that situation. Yes, you are getting up again! God is bringing you back. He is totally restoring you in the name of Jesus! Lazarus was sick, he died, was buried and his body was already stinking. There was no hope, no life and no possibility that he would ever come back to life. And rightly too, when Jesus came around they gave him these facts, “Lazarus is already buried and must be stinking by now. Please, forget him.” All hope was gone. But the LORD insisted that they show him where he was buried.

How Pastors Advertise Their Churches for December 31st Watch Night Service

Written by | January 1, 2019 | 0
December 31st Watch Night Services are annual rituals in which Christians across the world gather at their local churches to pray and encounter God. It is also a time to ask for God’s forgiveness and pray for divine guidance, protection and spiritual empowerment to sustain them for the coming years. In Ghana the program has turned into a creativity battle among the charismatic churches after the Founder and Leader of the International Central Gospel Church Dr Mensah Otabil started holding his program at the Sports Stadium with the highly publicised CROSS OVER caption. His event has become a staple for many Christians throughout the country. However the original December 3ist Watch Night is now abandoned by many of these charismatic churches thus replacing it with captions most

Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, The Chief Deceiver!

Written by | January 1, 2019 | 0
Isaac Owusu Bempah The self-acclaimed prophet, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, ought to be told in no uncertain terms that he is a false prophet, who triumphs on the cowardice of a section of the public. Every soul is certain to taste death, so one does not require any special powers to foretell this. I can ‘prophesy’ that the false prophet parading as Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, will die this year, if prayers are not intensified to avert that death. The point here is that if Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, the false prophet is spared death this year, I only have to defend myself by arguing that I prayed fervently to avert it. Period!! This is the kind of deception Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah is thriving on. If Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah is a real Prophet, as he claims, he should make CERTAIN and DEFINITE predictions

The Same Beginning -What Happened?

Written by | December 29, 2018 | 0
Judaism, Islam, Christianity What do Christians, Jews, and Muslims have in common? The three world monotheisms, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, all believe in the Genesis account of creation; the first humans in the Garden of Eden; and the fall of humanity when Adam and Eve disobeyed the Creator. The rest of the world calls the Adam and Eve story a myth; not compatible with science on the emergence of the human species. Two naked people, a talking snake, and a fruit tree with special powers. An analogy, a tall tale, or a literal story to show and tell how God’s children choose the knowledge of good and evil and disobeyed? But the crux of the story focuses on human freedom—the freedom to make their own choice. But God also outlined the consequence of their choice—death. Enter the Bible,
