(Washington, D.C.) — The most dramatic developments of the weekend in the Gaza war were these:

  1. President Obama’s call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday to demand an “immediate” ceasefire, even though Israeli leaders don’t feel they are yet finished neutralizing the threat posed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza.
  2. Secretary John Kerry’s disastrous efforts at creating a cease-fire, which actually managed to anger Palestinian, Egyptian and Israeli leaders all at once.
  3. Turkey’s brutally anti-Semitic language towards Israel and the Jewish people which has reached a dangerous new low.

First, President Obama. An immediate and unconditional ceasefire ending Israel’s assault on Hamas is a ‘clear strategic imperative’ to Israel, U.S. President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Sunday,” reported the Jerusalem Post. ” While the conversation focused on…

Jesus Christ our Redeemer

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. (Romans 8:33-34 ESV)

Let him lay hold upon the intercession of Jesus Christ. Let him grasp the great thought, that Christ not merely died for him, but rose again, and still lives for him.

There is a story recorded of one who lived 200 hundred years ago; a man well…
