We hear about upheavals of nature such as hurricanes, tsunamis and forest fires and the devastating effects they have on people, particularly if warnings are ignored.
We hear about terrorist attacks and people destroying their bodies and lives with street drugs. Sometimes we may wonder â€œWhat is this world coming to?â€ The Bible has the answer to this and many other questions. God warns that in a coming day this earth will be judged in righteousness by the Lord Jesus Christ.
You can learn through the articles in this magazine that we need to turn to God, who â€œis lightâ€ (2 John 1:5) in order to be saved. Also we see that God loves us and His love has no expiration date. As John Miller discovered, it is not what we do but what Jesus did for us that can make us sure of being in our future, eternal, forever home in Heaven. Read on to learn about the Lord Jesus Christ who is able, willing and available to save us.
We hope that through reading the articles you will be drawn to learn more of the Saviour who came to save you! You can have hope and peace in this fearful world.

Ours was a typical Amish family. When I was 16 years old I started what the Amish call, â€œRumschpringah.â€ Usually this consists of spending time with a group of your peers and being involved in their activities. My friends and I did many things against the church rules and against our parentsâ€™ wishes.
AreYou Afraid of the Dark?
Lots of people are afraid of the dark. Why is that? Why are we afraid of the dark? Some people think that when we canâ€™t see what is around us, we begin to imagine all kinds of scary things that might be out there. Plus, if something really was there, we wouldnâ€™t be able to see it.
No Expiration Date
Weâ€™ve all seen them, those little dates printed on the milk jug cap or in small print on the package of bread. That fresh milk taste or the delicious flavor of good bread has a time limit. Enjoy it before that little date, or run the risk of sour milk and dry bread. All great foods go bad at some point. Imagine trying to munch on food pulled from an Egyptian tomb.
What are Christians?
What are Christians? Is a Christian someone who is not Jewish or Muslim? Often we hear of â€œChristian Countries,â€ but is this a misnomer?

It was recognized in 2010 by the Guinness Book as the worldâ€™s most expensive tree. It cost over 11 million in US dollars. There was nothing cheap about the Christmas tree in the lobby of the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The bare-bones tree cost at least $10,000, but itâ€™s what hung on the tree that gave it such incredible value.
