Dear East Gates partner,
When we look at what is happening around the world, there is cause for great consternation. One could say that on the outside, things may seem like they’re falling apart but from the Throne Room perspective, things are falling together. Around 2000 years ago, Jesus stood on the Mount of Olives and proclaimed to His disciples major events that would precede His second coming (Matthew 24).

Jesus’ words continue to resonate and come to pass globally before our eyes every day. (Matthew 24:1-14).
