  • Matchmaking God brought true love after prophetic dreams
    Matchmaking God brought true love after prophetic dreams By Mark Ellis, Senior Correspondent for ASSIST News Service LAGUNA BEACH, CA (ANS - September 26, 2016) -- A hideous violation by her second husband left her wondering if she could every trust a man again. Then her best friend died from cancer, and a series of prophetic words and dreams opened her heart to love again. Originally from Canada, Elizabeth Coll moved to California with her daughter and second husband. “What we went through in our first year (of marriage) brought me to the end of myself,” Elizabeth says. A strong Christian, she had always pointed to her blessed circumstances to show others the greatness and love of God. But then she faced the ultimate betrayal by her new husband. “It was horrible, the circumstances…
  • Words Are the Incarnation of Thought: On the Trinity
    Words Are the Incarnation of Thought: On the Trinity By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service ALBUQUERUQUE, NEW MEXICO (ANS - September 25, 2016) -- I remember when I came to the realization that words matter. I was sitting in a college English class in Fremont, California. The class was reading and discussing T.S. Eliot’s poem, Journey of the Magi. And for some reason I had an epiphany while contemplating the 43-line poem. True, the poem is an amazing piece of verse. But it wasn’t necessarily the exclusiveness of the poem that prompted the feeling. Rather, Journey of the Magi acted as a final destination for my own journey with language, a metaphor for the wonder of words. After reading the Eliot poem that day something clicked; I came to see that words…
  • Let the Lord Renew Your Strength (Writer's Opinion)
    Let the Lord Renew Your Strength (Writer's Opinion) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service (www.assistnews.net) GROVE, OK (ANS - September 25, 2016) --  “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” — Isaiah 40:31 (ESV). In the past, I led an active lifestyle, running and exercising to stay fit. Next month, I’m facing knee replacement surgery. I can’t experience the thrill of a runner’s high anymore. When my running days were over, I was forced to race walk. Now, I walk with a sturdy stick to help me navigate through my neighborhood. Osteoarthritis has set in because of the breakdown of joint cartilage, limiting my movements and…
  • The Book of Mysteries -- Jonathan Cahn’s latest book
    The Book of Mysteries -- Jonathan Cahn’s latest book ‘Each mystery contains keys and truths to apply to one’s life, to change and transform one’s life’ By Janey DeMeo, Special to ASSIST News Service (ANS Book Feature) VISTA, CA (ANS – September 24, 2016) -- New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Cahn brings us another remarkable book, The Book of Mysteries. Similar to Cahn’s New York Times bestseller, The Harbinger, Cahn’s latest book also uses fictional narrative to bring forth biblical truths. (“The teacher” represents Jesus.) Yet this book is not a novel. With 365 short chapters, The Book of Mysteries is more of a daily devotional. What sets Cahn’s writing apart is his insightful biblical perspective. As a Jewish rabbi turned pastor, Jonathan Cahn possesses a profound grasp of the Bible’s original language…
  • Deepwater Horizon movie: horror, heroism, fear and faith
    Deepwater Horizon movie: horror, heroism, fear and faith By Rusty Wright, Special to ASSIST News Service (ANS Movie Review) MOUNT HERMON, CA (ANS – September 23, 2016) – Imagine you're relaxing in your hotel room after a long day's work.  Your three-week business trip is nearly over and you're returning home the next day.  Then… BOOM!  A massive explosion rocks your world.  Your room becomes an inferno of smoke and fire.  You rush to escape, wanting to get to the ground floor.  But that's impossible.  You see, you're in a floating hotel attached to an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.  Land is forty miles away.  What do you do?  Will you survive? Similar horror faced the Deepwater Horizon oil rig crew on April 20, 2010.  Eleven workers perished.  The resulting oil…
