times like this, we need a Shepherd! We don't know all the
hazards ahead, but He does! We can't escape this corrupt world system,
but He is our refuge in its midst! And He will surely lead His flock
to peace and safety -- no matter how fierce the storms ahead!
Two unseen forces are fast at work. God's Word describes them well:
"...the whole world is under the sway of the evil one."

purposed, so it shall stand." Isaiah 14:24

our God... we have no power against this great multitude that
is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes
are upon You." 2 Chronicles 20:12
Then, with our "eyes" on Him, we
press on toward the goal He has set before us!

government restrictions on Internet communication, our old site --
-- may sooner or later be shut down. You can find more information at
I'm so glad "our times are in [His] hands!" (Psalm 31:15)
Meanwhile, we are preparing
this new website. We have already copied most of the encouraging
testimonies, stories, books and Bible studies from ww.crossroad.to,
and we have fixed many of the links.
In "the Sermon on the Mount"
-- one of the Bible's best loved messages -- Jesus compares two
kinds of foundations:
unyielding rock versus "shifting sand." The first leads to
unshakable peace and certainty, the other leads to
As the storms around us grow increasingly fierce,
our foundations will surely be tested. But those who
follow the Shepherd and stand on His Word will be
safe with Him -- both now
By His grace alone,
