No peace where there is no peace

Attaining the goal of peace between Israel and Palestinian terrorists has been a centerpiece of every president's foreign policy since Jimmy Carter began involving terrorist leader Yassir Arafat in the flimsy Camp David Accords. Now, the current president is taking a stab at creating peace where there is no peace. In a joint statement with the Kingdom of Bahrain, the White House announced May 19 the two countries will host an economic workshop to  "facilitate discussions on an ambitious, achievable vision and framework for a prosperous future for the Palestinian people and the region, including enhancements to economic governance, development of human capital, and facilitation of rapid private-sector growth."
The statement announcing the "Peace to Prosperity" economic workshop said, "This workshop is a pivotal opportunity to convene government, civil society, and business leaders to share ideas, discuss strategies, and galvanize support for potential economic investments and initiatives that could be made possible by a peace agreement... If implemented, this vision has the potential to radically transform lives and put the region on a path toward a brighter future." The summit is the opening round of what President Trump says will be a comprehensive peace agreement between Israel and its enemies. Already, the key party in any peace agreement, the Palestinian Authority, has stated it will boycott the summit. 
This Administration has been one of the most pro-Israel on record. No doubt that Israel's economic and national security have been supported enthusiastically by the Trump White House. President Trump, unlike his predecessor, has embraced Israel for the strong ally and security partner it is in the Middle East. Notwithstanding, there are two reasons why this peace effort will not bring peace. First, nation-building in the Middle East does not work. The so-called "Palestinians," represented by the Palestinian Authority, an offshoot of the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization, have received billions of dollars in US and European aid over the past 40 years and their economic condition is no better and terrorism has not stopped. The old adage of "What you get for nothing is worth nothing" has been repeatedly confirmed.
The other reason is prophetic. Daniel 9 foretells with extraordinary accuracy of the coming Messiah, his death, and his return. The Beast (antichrist) in verse 27, "shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease..." This is the peace treaty that begins the seven years of Jacob's troubles, oft referred to as the tribulation. As Isaiah 28:18 says, "And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand." Even the peace agreement with the end-time Beast will not stand. Neither Donald Trump nor any other US President, will bring lasting peace to Israel. True peace only will come when the Messiah returns, destroys the Beast and his allies, and restores Israel. 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
