A very happy and prosperous 2020 to all our “Burning Bush” readers and faithful supporters and their families as we approach our 50th anniversary
(The first edition of ‘The Burning Bush’ was published, March 1970)
From Rev Ivan and Mrs Ann Foster
The sun can shine on a winter’s day but we never know what a day may bring forth.
The old hymn sums up our hope and confidence.
When the storms of life are raging,
Tempests wild on sea and land,
I will seek a place of refuge
In the shadow of God’s hand.
He will hide me, He will hide me,
Where no harm can e’er betide me;
He will hide me, safely hide me,
In the shadow of His hand.
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee,” Isaiah 43:1-3.

A new book by Mrs. Ann Foster
From the introduction:
Why is it that men are so prone to run away from God?
One has only to read the Bible to see the great and continual hostility of man to God and His Word. We see it over and over again in the history of the children of Israel.
They had witnessed the mighty works of God in Egypt, the ten dreadful plagues, only three of which affected the land of Goshen where Israel dwelt, and His ultimate deliverance of them from Egyptian bondage.
They had watched the miraculous dividing of the Red Sea, the walls of water providing protection from the pursuing armies of Pharaoh as they crossed over dry-shod. These same walls of water brought destruction to the chariots and death to the horsemen, foot soldiers and the proud king of Egypt as they were totally engulfed.
They were there when God came down on Mount Sinai with the glorious manifestations of His presence. They heard the thunder, saw the lightning and heard God’s voice speaking out of the fire. However, despite such a demonstration of God’s glory and power, they set up and worshipped the golden calf, while Moses was still in the mount receiving the tables of the law. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, accused the rebellious Israelites, under Moses’ leadership, of idolatry in these words: ‘Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them’ (Acts 7:43). They ate daily of the manna and drank water from the rock, yet they constantly murmured against God’s gracious and faithful provision.
Neither miracles of mercy nor terrible judgments prevailed to turn them from disobedience to God.

“BIBLE LANDS IN BIBLE LIGHT”
God’s Purpose for the BRITISH ISLES
By Rev. David McMillan
Price £1 (40p+postage)
Email Rev. Foster with your name and street address to order a copy.
God has a lot to say about the nations that were in the old Roman Empire; and in 2012 a series of meetings were held considering many such countries, so that particular thought should be given to what the Bible tells us of the future. This booklet has been added to that series of messages. The reason why the Lord has told us so much is because He would have us to understand His purpose for the earth.
