INTERVIEWER: And who are they?

Elisha had become sick with the illness of which he would die. Then Joash the king of Israel came down to him, and wept over his face, and said, "O my father, my father, the chariots of Israel and their horsemen!" And Elisha said to him, "Take a bow and some arrows." So he took himself a bow and some arrows. Then he said to the king of Israel, "Put your hand on the bow." So he put his hand on it, and Elisha put his hands on the king's hands.

The following is a transcript of a message delivered by Jan Willem van der Hoeven in Norway on July 20, 2014.

And I hope also that the Lord Jesus, by His Spirit, will show you what to do with the information - because we are living in unbelievably prophetic times. And I have a feeling that soon we will see a war in the Middle East that will lead to the greatest revival that has ever hit the Middle East.

All inclusive Babylonian unity!

He is the perfect matchmaker, Pope Francis, to see Christians from East and West unite – possibly even with true Allah-fearing Muslims joining in – but certainly the majority of Christians from nearly all existing denominations.

Will it help or hinder?

By Jan Willem Van der Hoeven|

The crucial and essential question that needs to be put to believers who have “been led” to become part of the Roman Catholic Church is this: Will the Catholic Church, in her doctrines and practices, become more distinctly the bride of the Lord through their witness and testimony, or will the opposite result in these individuals’ lives as they come under the influence and authority of the Pope and his curia;

In defense of Israel

Israel – Be Ready for John Kerry

By Jan Willem Van der Hoeven|

As US Secretary of State John Kerry boards his plane for yet another flight to the Middle East, here are a few requests Israel's government could have ready to make to its American guest.
