Apostolic and Prophetic Foundations

As we enter a decade of enormous challenge, uncertainty and shaking, I am assured that the church stands in great need of prophetic and apostolic foundations with men of that calling giving directive voices. How many of us have recognized that we have come to the end of our charismatic, pentecostal and evangelical tethers? Do we have a sense that there is a further dimension which eclipses all that we have known and had hoped in, but we do not know how to identify, or even find it?

Critiquing the Visions of the Last Days

It is only with some reluctance that we are responding to a request (2004) to give an evaluation of two videos we have been given to consider that have to do with an End Time vision of judgment upon America – given by prominent American ministers of the gospel.

God’s Preliminary Judgments?

As I write this (January 1994), some 20,000 victims of the recent California earthquake suffer in improvised and inadequate tent shelters, in abysmal conditions, totally unfamiliar to their accustomed and normally privileged lifestyles. A soldier-enforced curfew seeks to prevent widespread looting, but no legal restraint impedes the greedy from charging exorbitant prices for the simplest amenities, even water.

Jeremiah – Prophet of the Last Days

Jeremiah – Prophet of the Last Days  The absence of persecution in the church is a statement to our shame.  There is something wrong in the character of the church when it does not evoke any opposition to itself.  It means that the church has been found quite acceptable in the same world that is [...]

Preachers of Righteousness

I believe that God wants to make a statement concerning the phenomenon of the preached word, not only for those who are responsible for bringing the word of God, but also for the whole church at large.

Princess Diana’s Funeral: A Prophetic Comment

I think that it behooves the Church to attempt some evaluation or critique of the remarkable and unprecedented world-wide response to the untimely passing of this lady. No figure of international prominence has known such adoration or received such tribute and evoked such sorrow in passing as she.

Prophetic Anticipations for the Last Days

Concern about decaying environmental, economic and political conditions is moving the world toward global unification. Safety and self-interest will likely take precedence over ideological distinctions between nations, just as doctrinal differences between major church bodies will be eclipsed by the overriding interests of peace and unity.

Some Sober Prophetic Reflections (1993)

It seems as if God’s restraint is being increasingly lifted and removed from the world. There is a horrendous breaking-down and erosion of the most elementary values and decency. My soul is oppressed by the mounting hellishness, violence, mindless and conscienceless blood lust, terror and hatred. It is as if the whole moral order is unraveling, even the minimal legal restraints of society, to reveal the naked evil that is in the world.

The Arab and the Jew

The present crisis in Israel must be seen in the context of biblical understanding. It is the drama of a Jacob people called to be the Isra-el of God so as to bless all the families of the earth.

The Church’s Mandate to their Nation

  An edited version of a transcribed message by Art Katz, given to a Messianic congregation in Tel Aviv, Israel in March 2002.   The church in every nation has an obligation to represent something of God to the nation itself, to bring a particular perspective to the nation’s consciousness, which for the lack of a [...]

The Consequences of Failing to Know God

 I am, as I am sure you are, heavy-hearted over the recent assassination of Israel’s head of state, Prime Minister Yitzkak Rabin.  As tragic enough as it is itself, it seems to foreshadow something of a most solemn kind for Israel’s troubled future.  That is, in the justification found for it, “in God,” by an [...]

The Holy of Holies

Where then does the prophet (or apostle) get his perspective? What is the basis by which he sees? How does he have his sense of things that puts him in such opposition and contradiction to the world?

True and False Prophets

I trust that you share with me the increasing sense of importance that this subject bears. Up until now, I have borne with some patience and even amusement the number of those who currently label themselves “prophetic” and the popularity that this calling now enjoys, which has been contrary to my own experience. It seemed another one of those “fads” that sooner or later would fade away.

What ought we to be about in God in the Last Days?

There must be a cleaving to the prophetic word appropriate to the Last Days’ purposes of God. At its heart is Israel’s final redemption as obtained through a Church, alerted and prepared through such a word, for its own self-transfiguring and essential part in that restoration.
