Holly Mills

Sometimes God brings about a need in an organization and then fills that need through a special individual. This happened to us 2002. Although never having written articles to that point, Holly Mills joined the only other correspondent at the time, Brooks Alden, and began writing a column using the tagline, “As I See It.” It wasn’t long before letters began flowing in telling us how her messages were so inspiring and heartfelt.

Holly is one of the fortunate ones who have known of the Israel Truth message from youth and it has always sustained her through her life’s journey. She had a successful career in the airline industry but always found time for charitable pursuits. She hosted an Israel Truth Bible Study for three years and takes every opportunity to immerse herself in other studies of Scripture. Perhaps her greatest strength is that she writes what she feels so passionately.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matt. 24: 5-8).

These words that Jesus spoke in Matthew are certainly true of today. It seems that almost every day we hear of a war or some type of disaster happening somewhere in the world. A look at news items on the internet shows the following:


“For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travileth in pain together until now.” (Rom. 8:22).

A look at any newspaper headline or TV newscast today has numerous stories of disasters affecting our earth. We have fires, floods, droughts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, typhoons and hurricanes. There are wars, pestilences and famines everywhere. We indeed live on a troubled earth. Jesus warned us of these times immediately proceeding His return. “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (Matt. 24:7). I find it ironic that when so many of these disasters happen we blame God! Of course we never blame ourselves! These disasters may be judgment from God or the natural result of our disobedience to God and His laws. Whichever it is, in the end we are to blame, not God.


2011-05-millsThe world indeed seems to be in great crisis. There are wars and rumours of wars, pestilences, drought and food shortages, and great earthquakes all over the earth. The world as we knew it seems to be slipping away. Sometimes all these problems remind me of what we used to say about ten years ago, that the troubles would come like a snowball. As it rolls down the hill it gets bigger and bigger. That seems to be what is happening now. Yes, we have had wars, drought and earthquakes before but not like this where they are all happening at the same time and the many earthquakes we are now having are no longer just minor tremors but great. “And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Luke 21:11). The great earthquakes that we have had lately have caused great destruction to the land and the ones in Christchurch, New Zealand and off the east coast of Honshu, Japan actually moved the crust of the earth. This is amazing. The resulting tsunami from the Japanese earthquake was horrific and caused much destruction. These two earthquakes alone this year have cost tens of millions of dollars and great loss of life.


“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” (2Cor. 7:10)

Where is the repentance in our Israel nations today? I don’t see it. What I see are people who do not believe there is anything wrong with how they are living their lives. They use phrases such as, “I am a good person” or “as long as no one gets hurt what is the harm?” To these people the very mention of repentance and salvation in Jesus Christ brings a look of disdain and astonishment. “What have I got to repent of?” and “Why do I need to repent? I am not doing anything wrong. I’m a good person.”
