Adolf Hitler’s warning from God not to start a war

Mountains in Austria.

It would appear that God did draw a line in the sand and Hitler made a conscious decision to proceed with his plans.
The facts come from a documentary “The Nazis: A Warning From History – Hitler’s Path To War”

[1] An erratic and fickle God?

Can you imagine what the world would be like if there was a fickle God, one who was erratic in his behaviour? What would a relationship be like with Him? Where would you stand with Him? The Bible contains many, many promises, but if God was changeable, these promises would become useless…

What is God like?

Is God distant? A ‘Force’ for good? An old man with a grey beard? What is God like, well throughout the Bible God is spoken as: a real person, a King giving orders and a Master workman carrying out his designs and purposes…

What is God really like?

When we ask the question; ‘What is God like?’ We immediately hit a problem. Why? Because God fills the universe, He’s in all places at any given moment. He is also outside of time. Everything from the beginning of eternity, to the end of eternity, is set out in front of Him. All knowledge and wisdom that is to know, He knows, and lots more besides that…

God may be closer than you think, but can God be known? The wonderful truth is yes. But to answer this fully, we have got some more questions which we will provide answers for…

Giants and mighty men: As far as political leaders go there isn’t enough room in the world for very many giants and mighty men with their abuse of power, but in our everyday lives we can come across many who have that mindset…

[1] Our conscience and authority – rotten ones!

Our conscience and authority, how do we deal with bad or evil authorities?
I love this story where king Saul was tracking David to kill him and there was an unexpected twist:
Do you believe in luck, or the mighty, invisible hand of God in your circumstances?
Just look at this situation!
Saul goes into the very same cave, that David and some of his army are hiding…

Scientists who believe in the Genesis creation account

There are many scientists who believe Genesis to be factually true and who are Christian. On the TV, radio, magazines and papers we are regularly reminded – sometimes in very subtle ways – that science disproves Christianity, and that scientists are atheists. But this is not true. There are hundreds of scientists now, who do not believe in Darwin’s theory of Evolution…

[4] Our hard work AND God’s miracles

Does our hard work AND God’s miracles go together? Good, honest hard work is part of God’s plan for our lives, and when the Ark had been completed God expected Noah to look after all the animals in his care. But also notice that it is the Lord who will make the animals come to Noah! He didn’t say: “Go out, and catch two of every animal”, because that would have been an impossible task…

[5] Hardships in life

The tough situation, that hardship that hits us, is not something which is a waste of time, or something which has no relevance to our spiritual life, it may be the Lord either training us, or disciplining us. It could also be for the proving of our faith…
