Why Should I Be a Watchman for Israel?

As followers of Jesus Christ, we serve as watchmen for the people of God, whoever they may be—even the ones who do not yet identify themselves as the people of God.

Taking a Firm Stand in Prayer

By |2017-06-07T16:11:54-05:00June 1st, 2017|James' Blog|0 Comments

To be effective in praying for the complex situations in the world today—particularly in places like, say, the Middle East or in the volatile political arenas of many nations—we need men and women of consecration and excellence, like biblical Daniel. We must take a firm stand! The long days and weeks of our lives may be leading up to a culminating event that only God knows about. We dare not relax or retire from active watchman duty or from the practice of holy living that makes us able to plead God's promises with consistency and integrity. If you are [...]
