The Coming End to War

July - August 2015

In this issue, we reflect on the conflict of the second World War and realize that even a greater global conflict is coming. We explore the changes that have occured in the United States and other Western nations since World War II. We ask, "What is the time of the end and are we in it?". In the "Bible & You" section we look at caring for spiritual injuries and staying connected to the word of God in our busy lives.

Don’t they come from the cravings that are at war within you? … You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your evil desires”.
