Longing for Birthdays Past

“If ye break faith with us who die” On July 1st, 2006, Canada will celebrate its 150th birthday. Three days later, on July 4th, America will usher in the 241th anniversary of its Declaration of Independence. In both countries there will be signs of patriotism everywhere, in the speeches, the marching bands, ceremonies, flag waving and of course, the finale fireworks. Better than most days, we will remember our history, our high points and our military successes. And when the lines of the national anthems are sung, “O Canada, we stand on guard for thee” and “O’er the land...

Study to Show Ourselves Approved

It’s fascinating to look back throughout history and pinpoint certain events that leave us no doubt whatsoever that the very plan of God is unfolding exactly as He prophesied throughout the Scriptures. Yet, unless one is equipped with the key to the mystery, the prophesies will remain just that, a mystery. You see, the key is in knowing the true identity of the ancient Israelites.

Probably like most Christians, he was thankful that God granted us Grace and has forgiven our indiscretions. Yet, what about a nation, in particular, a True Israel nation? Could these few...

The Observation Post – May 2017

It will not be a good time for 6,000 employees who will lose their jobs when up to 140 J.C. Penny stores close, as the department-store industry sags in competition with online sellers and nimble niche retailers. It’s a sign of shifting shopping patterns brought about by great technological change and it will go on and on in other industries as well.

The Observation Post – April 2017

Sometime ago I received a one line note that said, “Hey Brooks, we’re Israel too.” It was simply signed “A Finlander”. Along with most readers, I knew this, of course, but I never wrote on the subject and filed the note away. But, a couple of month’s ago, I happened along a clip of a WW2 hero, Field Marshall Mannerheim. Baron Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim was a Finnish military leader and statesman. His career was breathtaking. He served as the military leader of the Whites in the Finnish Civil War, He was Regent of Finland (1918–1919), Commander-in-Chief of Finland’s...
