About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

EJP News | Germany | Full text of speech by the President of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Poettering, to the Knesset
I have chosen two guiding principles for my term of office as President of the European Parliament: the first is that the dignity of every individual is inviolable, and the second is that we should do everything in our power to foster dialogue between cultures. My aim is to ensure that these principles do not simply remain empty words. My most fervent wish is that the Middle East should become a region in which the dignity of each individual is respected on all sides and at all times. I want to see the Middle East become a region which symbolises dialogue between cultures throughout the world.

This region is the holiest land on earth. However, all too often it is seen as a region of cultural conflict. I am, of course, well aware that the realities are much more complex and that the problems are complicated and have many facets. Nevertheless, all of us parliamentarians who are working to achieve that objective in the context of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership process should ask ourselves repeatedly what more we can do in order to foster dialogue between cultures, mutual respect and the unconditional protection of human dignity.

I am deeply convinced that this is ultimately what the Middle East peace process is all about. The peace process is more than a mechanical political process and it is also more than a huge geopolitical exercise. Fundamentally, it is about establishing a stable basis of trust so that dialogue can develop across religious and national borders and so that respect for the dignity of the individual at all times becomes axiomatic.
