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)

Shimon Peres set to write its future

globeandmail.com: An author of Israel's history set to write its future
The entryway where his secretary sits is lined with pictures of him standing with former U.S. president Bill Clinton, Jordan's late King Hussein and, more recently, Pope Benedict XVI. On a shelf behind his own oversized desk is the Nobel Peace Prize he received 13 years ago along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat.

But Mr. Peres, who frequently says the past "bores" him, keeps too busy a schedule to spend much time pondering his rich history.

Last week, he set the media talking by hosting Palestinian prime minister Salaam Fayyad at his official residence in the heart of West Jerusalem. The guest yesterday was Michael Williams, the United Nations special envoy to the Middle East. Next up is Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, whom Mr. Peres invited to visit him next week.

This is not typical behaviour for an Israeli president. Until Mr. Peres took office this summer, the post was largely ceremonial and recently a source of shame for Israelis.

His greatest successes have come on the international stage. He was the guiding light behind Israel's first interim peace accord with the PLO in 1993 in Oslo, and he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his role.

Mr. Peres was born in Poland in 1923 and immigrated to Israel with his family as a child.
