From the East and West
This book is a collection of travel stories and articles that have previously been published mainly in the Dutch Infobulletin Stichting Asian Care. After editing of some parts, they are presented in chronological sequence. The publication serves to hold the existence and the use of the centuries-old Silk Road against the light of the prophecy regarding the world salvation plan that the God of Israel has in store for Israel and the Church. You will notice that words and conceptions such as roads, crossroads, highways and paved paths are of special importance in this context. Moreover, with regards to content, the articles are a report of the work of the Dutch Asian Care Foundation, which the author coordinated. What does prophetic prose about the Silk Road imply? In recent decennia the Silk Road has repeatedly been in the news. For centuries, the Silk Road has been of paramount importance for commerce and the transfer of culture. Since the 15th century AD, the significance of the Silk Road has decreased due to the discoveries of the shipping routes and the possibilities these created for world trade over the sea. However, in recent decennia the Silk Road has definitely come back into the picture. The leaders of the governments of distant countries such as Australia and New- Zealand, Indonesia and the other countries in Southeast Asia, Russia, Siberia, Japan and China, the countries of Central Asia, Asia minor and the Middle East all recognize the benefit of improvement of the infrastructure by constructing motorways, railways and shipping routes and keeping aircraft routes clear. This provides a new impetus to worldwide trade and at the same time breathes new life into an ancient road system. The Silk Road has made a comeback and its current dynamics are more conspicuous than ever! Bearing in mind that the coming of Messiah Jesus is rapidly approaching, this development is no surprise. These dynamics are very opportune. Matthew 24:14 says that the “Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”. The first indication of the return of Jesus Christ is evident in world evangelization thus far accomplished. The Asian road system 2 proved and once again proves to be of great importance for large-scale evangelization, for world evangelization, for creating opportunities to reach all nations, peoples and tribes with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As these things will ‘shortly’ come to pass according to ancient prophecies (see Revelation of John 1:1,22:6), it would seem that this ‘haste’ coincides with the haste that characterizes modern times. At any rate, the new road system of Asia facilitates action with haste and speed. Another phenomenon is also involved here. “Learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh.” (Matthew 24:32). In my opinion, this refers to the second indication of the return of Jesus Christ: the return of the Jews from the midst of the peoples, as predicted in the Bible, to the land of Israel that was, so to speak, born on one day in 1948 with the approval of the United Nations (Isaiah 66:8). The Silk Road also appears to be of considerable practical convenience for these events. I shall enter at length into these in the articles. Actual events and developments, political circumstances, and the history with regard to church and mission, are related to the prophecy concerning Gods plan with the nation of Israel and the other nations. Further it is brought forward that the Silk Road connects with all the great world trade routes in Israel, in Jerusalem, the midst of the earth. (Psalm 74:12) That too has a special redemptive significance. The bundle of articles that were published during the period 2000 through 2011, also serves as an appeal for involvement and participation in the several mission programmes in the various countries of Asia mentioned in this book. Sometimes preceded by meditation and Bible study, the articles, travel reports and project visits always have their own context and objective that is or is not made known. Each of these can be read separately. However, with reference to the segregation of the countries concerned, the reader must bear in mind that hidden objectives and secret activities, which cannot be mentioned in writing, are quite often involved. In some cases Western candour could (considerably) endanger the projects and those involved, and it also makes writing about it quite difficult. Sometimes there is a different story behind the story, which remains concealed for the reader as a safety precaution.
