The End is Here – Bible Prophecy Update on Turkey (“King of the North”)

The events of the last few weeks in the Middle East involving ISIS, Syria, Russia, Turkey, Iran, China, etc. have generated renewed interest in the prophecies of Daniel 11 and 12.

Bible Prophecy Update: Pope and Evangelicals meet in Rome

In the March edition of Good Tidings E-News (#28) we reported on a landmark meeting between Pope Francis and Pentecostal Bishop Tony Palmer appealing for unity amongst Christians.

We noted in that article that by this appeal for unity in Christendom, recognising all as brothers and sisters under the…
Dumaguit Family

My Conversion – Mercy Dumaguit

I was raised in a devoted Roman Catholic family.  When I was 8 years old, my mum used to train me to do the holy rosary and some other readings of the lives of the saints every night from seven to eight o’clock and sometimes longer.  One day, I secretly talked to Virgin Mary asking her to give me an easier way of going to heaven, but she didn’t answer me.  Time passed, and I waited for the answer with…

Whenever the subject of money is brought up, it seems to get the attention of people from all walks of life, some in a positive…
