Our Lord and Saviour, the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Prince of peace and Lord of glory, will arrive suddenly, in an instant! The rapture of the true church of the living God, will take place suddenly. The tribulation will begin suddenly. The veil of blindness upon the Jews will be lifted suddenly!
Sudden destruction will come to this world - off guard and unaware.
If we put the root meanings together of the word âsuddenlyâ in both Hebrew and Greek we come up with: Surprising, straightaway, instantly, unexpectedly.
The meanings can be extended into the resulting actions or emotions as well. For example, âsuddenâ as used here in the Bible often produces shock, awe, confusion, regret, hysteria and the like.
The sudden rapture:
The biblical rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:17) or âcatching up of we who are alive,â is an event which is exclusive. Itâs only for the born-again, true church. It will take place in an âatomic moment.â This is the meaning of the original word âmoment,â used in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52. It means the smallest division of time possible.
The rapture is also seen as occurring in a âtwinkling of an eye.â This is also an incredibly short space of time. This term has other wonderful meanings. Letâs have a brief look at it:
One of the Feast of Trumpets rituals is called the âTashikhâ symbolising the casting off of sins and the beginning of all things new. It is to be performed in the late afternoon at dusk, just as the sun sets and just before the night begins. This very short transition period is known as the âtwinkling of an eye.â
The ritual is still performed today, at any body of water by the practise of casting stones, representing the sins of Israel, into the water while quoting Micah 7:19-20 âGod will again have compassion on us, you will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.â
A previous verse in the same discourse (verse9) says that âGod will bring them (Jews) forth into the light and they will see His righteousness.â
Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15:52 in describing the rapture of the church, compares it with the âtwinkling of an eyeâ ritual at Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets)
Do you see what I see?
The rapture will happen very fast. It will happen on a Feast of Trumpets, which is the next to find prophetic fulfilment, and it will signal the mass salvation of the Jews, as they go into the tribulation period, which will begin immediately, suddenly, at the same time.
The big thing to bear in mind here is that there will be no time to prepare. Those who think they can wait till the last moment before getting saved or getting ready will be âsuddenlyâ shocked! The suddenness of the event will catch the world totally off-guard!
For those in the sudden rapture, it will be instant transformation into incorruptible, eternal glory!
The rapture is sudden, exclusive, selective and spectacular and is very closely associated with the start of the tribulation.
Enoch is a type of the sudden rapture. Imagine walking along with someone and suddenly âhe was not, because God took him!â (Genesis 5:24)
Will it be world peace or world war?
Will the rapture leave behind a world of temporary peace?
No it wonât. The peace treaty or covenant that starts the tribulation and reveals the antichrist peace-maker is the only âpeaceâ the world will see. The âpeace treatyâ will be a gigantic lie and deception.
The only âpeaceâ the world will see is the word âpeaceâ written on a piece of paper!
Some believe that the first half of the tribulation will be peaceful and only the second half will be the âwrath of God.â
Not so! The entire tribulation will see natural and social upheavals. Yes, the second half will be far worse, but far worse than the devastation of the first half!
1 Thessalonians 5:3 âWhen they (unsaved) say âpeace and safety!â then sudden destruction comes upon them like labour pains upon a pregnant woman and they shall not escape.â
Isaiah 47:11 â...Desolation shall come upon you (Babylon) suddenly, which you shall not know.â
Jeremiah 6:26 Impending destruction: âO daughter of my people...the plunderer shall come upon us suddenly.â
Jeremiah 51:8 âBabylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed...â
âBabylonâ in these verses above is not the literal city, but the end-time world-system in type.
So now we see that the true church will suddenly meet our King and so be with Him forever in everlasting peace. We see that the world will suddenly meet their lord â the antichrist, in massive tribulation and everything but peace!
Mental anguish and turmoil of the time:
Very few people are aware of how much the Bible has to say about the sudden deterioration of the mental condition of people in the tribulation period!
The tribulation period and a fair amount of the preceding forerunner times will be a time of great conflict in the spiritual realm, which will have ramifications and consequences in the natural, specifically in the hearts and minds of people.
Be aware that the whole world will suddenly be engulfed in spiritual conflict with no restraint, which will instantly transfer to the minds of the masses.
The tribulation period is the final end of Godâs patience with sinful, evil, wicked mankind. It is the end of His grace, which has warned about over and over again.
These tragic, but powerful verses below all relate to the stressed out minds of the masses in the time period called the tribulation:
Deuteronomy 28:28 âThe Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart.â
Jeremiah 20:4 âThus says the Lord: âBehold, I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends. They shall fall by the sword of their enemies and your eyes shall see it...â
Jeremiah 15:8 â...I will cause anguish and terror to fall on them suddenly.â
Isaiah 13:6-9 âWail, for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty, therefore all hands will be limp, every manâs heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them...Behold the day of the Lord comes, cruel with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and He will destroy its sinners from it.â
The key words and phrases from these verses above are:
âMadness âblindness âconfusion of heart âA terror to yourself âSudden anguish âterror âfear âsorrow âLimp hands,melting hearts.
Note that these words above all relate to oneâs psychological state!
The tragedy today is that sin is worshipped and accepted. Holiness is rejected, refused and condemned. This is all a total reversal. Godâs word said it would be this way. The reason is simple:
Satan is the god of sin. Our Lord is the God of holiness. Satan gave birth to sin in the Garden. Our Lord was the sacrifice for sin in the new birth, of which holiness is the result. But you can only reach it by being born-again!
The one and only remedy for sin and the way to holiness and peace is the way of the cross. Outside of the new-birth mankind is doomed to a fallen deteriorating life now and in eternity.
The heart of man is desperately wicked says the Bible. (Jeremiah 17:9) People love the darkness and sin. (John 3:19)
The term âborn-againâ is vitally important. It is key and foundational to true, pure, biblical Christianity. It is NOT to be changed, renamed or interfered with in any way, by anyone. Being born-again means being born-again, NOT conceived.
Isnât it interesting that we are in a time where âknowledge will increase.â (Daniel 12:4) But at the same time deception is increasing. (Matthew 24:4) Both travel along the same highway!
Truth and holiness and error and sin are growing further and further apart these days, making it very easy to identify which is which. Then why are these days characterised by great deception and delusion? Itâs because at the same time, spirits are putting out the spiritual eyes of the hard-hearted!
The messages of Joseph:
Joseph was a type of Yeshua. He was a Jew, but also has a close affinity with the Gentiles.
Both Yeshua and Joseph were rejected by their brothers. Both went to Egypt. Both were stripped of their robe / coats. Both overcame temptation and both were falsely accused. Both were unrecognised by their brothers at first. Both provided salvation.
Joseph landed up as a chief in the chief of the Gentile world â Egypt. He married a Gentile bride.
Now letâs have a look at some incredible facts!
In the Amplified Bible and in the Jewish, Hebrew Bibles, Psalm 81:5 contains a great mystery. In this one verse Josephâs name has an extra âhâ inserted. The ancient Rabbis believed that because Joseph sanctified his divine name by resisting Potipharâs wife, he deserved having this extra letter from the divine name âYahwehâ added to his name.
Joseph (in Hebrew) now had part of the name of the Messiah in his name.
âºAnother powerful explanation for the added letter âhâ is found in the same story. Before Joseph was about to be appointed Viceroy by Pharaoh, he was required to be able to speak all seventy languages of the then world. He could not, so the angel Gabriel came to him in the night and supernaturally gave them all to him, but added the extra letter to indicate that Josephâs future ministry would be of God and to every nation, tribe and tongue on the earth.
When Joseph became Viceroy he had all the Egyptians circumcised. This is a type of his passion to have the whole world converted. This passion is also seen in Moses taking the bones of Joseph with him out of Egypt.
Moses took the bones of Joseph with him symbolising this desire to convert the world.
Pharaoh gave Joseph a new name on his release from prison, on the day which became the Feast of Trumpets (Psalm 81:3-6). The new name was: Zaphnath-Paaneah, meaning âThe revealer of secrets.â (Genesis 41:45) Bear in mind that the children of Israel were released from Egypt also on the Feast of Trumpets. (Isaiah 27:13)
Will the Jews begin to have the great secret revealed of the Messiahâs identity on a Feast of Trumpets? â You bet!
Joseph was released from prison to become the kings king. Pharaoh did this by giving him the royal ring and clothing him with new garments of fine linen and put a golden medallion around his neck. Then Pharaoh gave Joseph his own chariot to ride out to all the people.
As he rode out, the people all called him by the name âAvrech.â (Genesis 41:42-43) The Hebrew sages interpret this name as, âThe one to whom we all kneel.â
Do you see what I see?
Joseph is a type of our Lord. He is the revealer of the great secret that Yeshua is the Jewish God of the Jews. This revelation will hit the Jews suddenly, with the great drama beginning on a soon-coming Feast of Trumpets.
Joseph revealed himself to his brothers âsuddenly.â It was a sudden revelation.
The Jews, with their new found, long-lost âBrotherâ will be the great âlight to the nationsâ â to every tribe and tongue and nation!
Joseph is also called by the sages, âThe splendour of Adam.â
My friend, our Lord and glorious Saviour is the final and complete âsplendour of Adam!â My Jewish friends, you will soon become the âsplendour of Adamâ as your eyes look to Joseph and see not him but your great King of kings and Lord of lords! My friends, we as true believers in our Lord, at the rapture, will soon become the final âsplendour of Adam, too!
The drama to end all dramas:
Well, my friends it is already a spectacular drama of monumental proportions as we have seen so far. The main subject of this article is the suddenness of it all. Have a look now at some verses relating to our theme.
Psalm 6:10 âLet all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly!â
Malachi 3:1 âBehold I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. The Lord whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger in who you delight, behold He is coming, says the Lord of hosts (armies.)â
Isaiah 29:5 âThe multitude of your foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away; It shall be in an instant, suddenly!â
Leviticus 26:15-16 âIf you despise My judgements, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, I also will do this to you: I will appoint (sudden) terror over you...â
Zechariah 3:9 â...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.â
Habakkuk 3:4 âHis brightness was like the light; He has rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden.â
The word âlightâ in the verse above is the same word used for: âThe breaking of the dawn, awakening, light of life, light of face.â
There is a great awakening coming to Israel from the hand of our Lord. They will suddenly see His face, in a new light â the light of life. It will be a new dawn that will have been birthed in the twinkling of an eye!
Suddenly, the future!
Weâve seen that many things will happen very suddenly. There are other things that will also happen suddenly, but from a wider prophetic point of view. These things we will see taking shape.
It is the issues surrounding Jerusalem, the Jewish people and even the Temple Mount that are now in the prophetic mixer.
Watch for Syria to fall. Watch for Jordan to turn against Israel. Watch for Lebanon to become a lot more hostile with Israel. Watch for Iran to explode onto the stage. Watch for the King of the North and of the South to appear. Watch for the Psalm 83 war to start. Watch for a new Temple. Above all watch your own heart.
Imagine that one day you will be sitting right there where you are now, just like normal, and in a blinding flash you will suddenly be in heaven! What a thought! But the funny thing is; it will soon be very true!
My friends we are about to go into the most astonishing, amazing, dramatic and fantastic times. Staggering, stunning and splendid are words that come to mind when considering the future for the true believer!
2 Peter3:14 âBe diligent that you be found in peace.â
When you move forward in the truth, you move into holiness and ever -expanding peace.
The world promotes and celebrates the destruction of restraint in society and the advance of sin and evil. They deplore the advance of holiness and purity.
My friends, âdiamonds are forever!â (1 Joel 1:1) You have the potential to be a diamond in the pillar of Godâs eternal temple. You were created to shine like a bright jewel forever.

What makes Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews unique and special is that they are the only ones that God has made an eternal covenant with, besides true, born-again believers. These promises to Israel identify and separate Israel from the world â forever!
The covenant promises also reveal Godâs prophetic plans, purposes and will. They find their dramatic conclusion in these days, and the time period just ahead.
Biblical covenants are between two people, or in this case, between God Himself and the Jews as an entity. But is a covenant still valid if one side breaks his side of the deal?
The central theme of this edition is Godâs eternal covenant of peace with Israel and Satanâs counterfeit covenant of peace with Israel for seven years.
Genesis 17:7-8 âI will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.â
Deuteronomy 4:40 âYou shall keep His statutes and commandments that it may go well with you and with your children after you and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.â
Psalm 105:8-9 âHe has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded for a thousand generations, and the covenant which He made with Abraham and His oath to Isaac and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant.â
These verses above are so rich with many legal terms. They are substantial, clear and perfectly spelt out with no ambiguity!
Who are Godâs covenant promises for?
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: âMoses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their graven images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who you let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.â
Note in the verse above that the children of Israel were to drive out the inhabitants of the Promised Land as they went in, by commandment of God. So much for the UNâs claim that Israel is the occupying force!
Israel did not fully comply with this and the Palestinian issue is the resulting âirritant.â
Exodus 34:11-14 âObserve what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst...â
Note in the verse above, the list of people who were to be removed. These are the origins of the Arab /Palestinian people today. Note that Israel was to make no covenant of any sort with them!
Let me say that again: Israel is forbidden from making any covenant with them, but are to drive them out of the promised land.
Genesis 17:18-21 âAbraham said to God, âO that Ishmael (Arabs) might live before You!â Then God said: âNo, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his descendants after him.â
So, in these verses above we see that God has made covenant promises with the children of Israel, and not the Arabs / Palestinians. The covenant promises from God are exclusively for the Jews and the land of Israel. There are other promises given to the Arabs.
Israelâs covenant with God is of peace:
Numbers 25:12-13 âThe Lord spoke to Moses and said to him, âBehold I give to him My covenant of peace; and it shall be to him and his descendants after him, a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for His God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.â
Ezekiel 37:26 âI will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore.â
Isaiah 54:10 âThe mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has mercy upon you.â
The end result and fruit of Godâs covenant promises with Israel is of peace. This is peace in the land of Israel, peace in the city of Jerusalem and ultimately peace in the hearts of the people.
Israelâs coming fateful mistake:
Leviticus 26:15-16 âIf you despise My judgements, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, I also will do this to you: I will appoint (sudden) terror over you...â
Israel will break their side of Godâs covenant promises with devastating consequences, for them and the whole world. But God will not break His side of the deal. The covenant promises will endure. But they will have a temporary seven-year hold as the great tribulation partially destroys the world.
Israel will make a fateful, forbidden covenant with the person who is to be revealed as the antichrist, which will bring the worldâs most severe curses and catastrophes upon the world and Israel for a short season.
Jeremiah 11:2-5 âHear the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and say to them, âThus says the Lord God of Israel: âCursed is the man who does not obey the words of this covenant, which I commanded your fathers when I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, âObey My voice...that I may establish the oath which I have sworn to your fathers...â
âHosea 8:1-3 âSet the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have broken My covenant and rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, âMy God, we know You!â Israel has cast off good; the enemy will pursue him.â
âIsaiah 24:1-6 âBehold, the Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface. It shall be; as with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants...they have broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left.â
Again these verses above are clear and full of tragic meaning and soon-coming reality!
The forbidden, cursed covenant:
As we have seen in these amazing verses above, Israel will break their side of Godâs covenant. They will make a new covenant, a peace deal with the Antichrist, in place of Godâs covenant, against Godâs will and command. Israel will make a cursed covenant of peace with Satan himself â in disguise!
This cursed act will not nullify Godâs eternal covenant, but will simply put it on hold for seven years, the length of the great tribulation.
Isaiah 28:15-18 âBecause you (Israel) have said, âwe have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves...âTherefore, your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (hell) will not stand...â
As revealed in the verse above, Israel will think that they will be safe and have peace by making this new covenant! Talk about a grand tragedy! But also note that the peace covenant with the antichrist will not last and will be annulled.
What powerful deception Israel will come under!
The world will also reap the curse. Because it is of its god â Satan, it will encourage and welcome this âpeaceâ deal with the antichrist.
Many Bible teachers get this satanic, antichrist peace covenant wrong because they look exclusively at Daniel 9:27, âAnd he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.â This is the abomination of desolation that makes the earth a wrecked world no good for proper habitation of mankind.
But this verse only reveals some aspects of the seven year covenant. There are many verses relating to this soon-coming covenant with hell. We must examine them all together to get the full picture.
The more traditional view is absolutely right. That this is a seven-year peace covenant signed between the person who will be revealed by that signing as the antichrist, and Israel as well as âthe many.â
No previous peace deal with Israel was a seven-year covenant, as it must be. All previous covenants are null and void and would have to be re-negotiated. The word âpeaceâ is found in other verses.
Here are some of the verses dealing with this fateful, coming covenant:
Daniel 8:24-25 âHis power (antichrist) shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy fearfully and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty and also the holy people...He shall destroy many in their prosperity (and peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.â
Daniel 11:21-22 âIn his place shall arise a vile person (antichrist) to whom they will not give the honour of royalty, but he shall come in peaceably (Lit=making peace) and seize the kingdom by intrigue...He shall be the prince of the covenant.â
Daniel 11:30-32 â...He (antichrist) shall rage against the holy covenant and do damage. He shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant...he shall defile the holy sanctuary and place there the abomination of desolation. Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery, but the people who know their God shall be strong...â
Note in these verses above we have the prince of the covenant of hell and the Prince of princes! Israel will make the wrong choice initially!
Israel cannot sign any sort of peace covenant with the world, Palestinians, antichrist or anyone, without breaking Godâs pre-existing eternal peace covenant with them made thousands of years ago.
The covenant of the âprince of the covenantâ (antichrist) is exactly what brings destruction and not peace.
Daniel 9:27 âHe shall confirm (make oneself mighty) a covenant with many for one week (seven years); but in the middle he will bring an end to sacrifice and offering and on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate...â
The coming peace covenant of Daniel 9:27 may well include the rebuilding of the Third Temple, which is required in a number of verses.
The Daniel 9:27 treaty may be a non-aggression pact or a pure peace treaty. It may include a land for peace deal. It may even include a multi-faith dimension.
The tribulation period will begin suddenly at the same time as this signing of the peace covenant.
The cursed covenant of peace is the same event revealed in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 speaking of the revealing of the man of sin (antichrist.)
Israel will repent:
Deuteronomy 4:30-31 âWhen you are in distress (tribulation)and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.â
Israel will make the tragic mistake of breaking Godâs covenant and accepting Satanâs false peace covenant. But they will soon realise it, and turn to the Lord in repentance.
Leviticus 26:40-42 âIf they confess the iniquity of their fathers and their unfaithfulness...and are humbled and accept their guilt â then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac, and My covenant with Abraham; I will remember their land.â
Exodus 23:27 âI will send My fear before you, I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you.â
Not only will Israel repent and turn to the Lord, but our God will come in and back them in a whole new way. The above verse relates to invincible Israel during the Exodus. It is also prophetic relating to Israel being ultimately invincible in war during the tribulation.
The city of Jerusalem is part of Godâs eternal covenant of peace. We are called upon to âpray for the peace of Jerusalem.â (Psalm 122:6)
Amazingly the name of the city has much more to it.
The word âJerusalemâ itself is made up of two words, âYrwâ, meaning âfoundationâ and âSalemâ meaning âpeace.â The city is also known as the âhabitation or dwelling place of peace.â
It is the only city or place in the world where God says, âI have put My name forever.â (2 Chronicles 33:7)
Counterfeit âpeaceâ will come to Jerusalem through Satan. He will set up his âofficeâ right there. He has chosen Jerusalem. Satanâs âpeaceâ will be the seven year tribulation! Satan is a liar, thief and murderer. His peace efforts will be annihilated by the Prince of Peace as He returns to His Jerusalem, the âhabitation of peace.â (Zechariah 3:2)
The final new covenant:
Jeremiah 31:31 âBehold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.â
This new covenant does not cancel out the existing eternal covenant between God and Israel. The new covenant is like a new layer on top of and over the previous covenant. It relates to people as individuals and their personal salvation.
The Jews will participate in this in large numbers in the tribulation period.
The way of truth:
Passover led to the Exodus and the deaths of the enemies of the children of Israel in the plagues of Egypt. The Exodus led to the Promised Land and the deaths of the enemies of Israel in the Red Sea. The Promised Land now leads to the promise of salvation to the Jews and the deaths of the enemies of Israel in the tribulation period!
The way of peace is the way of truth. Making deals with devil will never produce peace! Drawing near to God in the fear of God is total and complete safety, with its result â peace!
Culture and Tradition Are Used for Deception
By Pastor Gary Boyd
Satan has made powerful inroads into the masses through culture and tradition, ethnic or otherwise. The way to God is not through a priest listening to your confession. You confess your sins to God the Father, not any priest who wants you to call himself Father. Matthew 23:9 says, âAnd don't address anyone here on earth as 'Father,' for only God in heaven is your spiritual Father.â The ones who you confess to will use your confessions against you for profit it they can.
Traditions To Be Avoided
There are many things in many cultures that are harmless and should be infused into the church of those ethnic groups. Some of the clothing, music and customs are really wonderful.
Many of these traditions have filtered into the churches of these cultures, giving them a great character! But there are some traditions to be avoided!
Some are deeply rooted in witchcraft, generational curses and all things demonic. My advice is to stay away from churches that draw attention to bleeding statues or stigmata in their followers. In The Fatima Crusader article, Malachi Martin, a scholar, priest, Vatican insider, and best-selling author, said, âAnybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.â
From 1958 until 1964, Jesuit priest Malachi Martin served in Rome where he was a close associate of, and carried out many sensitive missions for the renowned Jesuit Cardinal Augustin Bea and the pope. Released afterwards from his vows of poverty and obedience at his own request (but still a priest), he ultimately moved to New York and became a best-selling writer of fiction and non-fiction.
Martin had first made reference to a diabolic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, in which he wrote:
"Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishopsâ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the âsuperforce.â Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VIâs reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to âthe smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuaryâ. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophiliaârites and practicesâ was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangelâs rites." (p. 632)
Martin's accusation of a satanic ritual at the Vatican was also confirmed by John Loeffler, host of the Steel on Steel radio show. Mr. Loeffler personally asked Malachi Martin (who had been a regular guest on his show) about the reported dedication to satan within the Vatican:
"You know Malachi confirmedâthe first part of his book, Windswept Houseâhe confirmed the dedication of the Vatican to satan in a secret ceremony that occurred unknown even to the Pope at that time, that he managed to pick up. And I did ask him, 'Was this true? Did it happen?' And he [ Martin] said, 'yes, it did.'" - John Loeffler (July 29, 2000 radio show)
In the months before the 1948 national election, the CIA dumped $65 million of its black money into the Vatican Bank. Much of the cash was hand delivered in large suitcases by members of Lucianoâs syndicate, including clerics with affiliations to the Sicilian Mafia.The heroin, which remained the source for the black money, continued to be supplied to the Sicilian mob by Schiaparelli, the Italian pharmaceutical giant. The drugs were received by a chain of businesses that had been set up in Palermo by Luciano and Don Calo. These businesses included a candy factory, which produced chocolates that were filled with neither cherries nor cream but nuggets of 100 percent pure smack. Another company was a fruit export enterprise, which was of integral importance, since the drugs continued to be shipped to Cuba in crates of oranges, half of which were made of wax and stuffed with pure heroin. The Vatican bank was laundering money for the mob as early as 1948.
Church Becomes Powerless
When these things are brought into the church it immediately renders that church powerless and opens doors to many other erroneous practises.
Our western world is largely influenced by biblical culture and tradition although that is being eroded fast. Israel for example has a powerful, direct cultural relationship with the Hebraic aspects of the Bible.
Personally, I believe that all true believers should have some identity with Hebraic culture. It immediately softens the hearts of Jews, which is a requirement for Gentile believers. (Romans 11:11)
Letâs have a deeper look into these things:
The word âcultureâ is not in the Bible, but the breakdown of its meaning is profoundly important. The closest biblical word is âtradition.â
Culture: From the root word âcultoâ which is associated with the word for a cult involving worship. The word âcolereâis the root for cultivate but also has a âworking wheelâ (âkwelâ) in its origin. So, putting all this together we can accurately say that the word âcultureâ is associated with continuous revolving or repeating works and worship.
Tradition: Strongâs G3862, âParadosis.â Meanings: surrender, giving over, the substance of a teaching.
Matthew 15:6 â...You make the word of God of no effect by your tradition.â
Colossians 2:8 âBeware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Messiah.â
So in these definitions and verses above we see the grave danger of bringing certain cultures and traditions into the church. Iâve seen this firsthand many times in my years of mission work in rural tribal lands where witchdoctors have enormous sway and influence. They bring darkness into the church, poverty, sickness, despair, and many other such things.
You may be surprised to learn of some of the meanings of the word âdarknessâ in the Bible. In many verses âdarknessâ is associated with demonic traditions of the world.
Darkness: Strongâs H2822, âChoshek.â Sometimes another word is used: Strongâs H653, âAphelahâ The meanings are: Obscurity, destruction, heaviness, ignorance, wickedness, gloominess.
Note in this amazing verse below that this darkness is actually a âdriving forceâ It has spiritual implications.
Isaiah 8:22 âThen they will look to the earth, and see trouble and darkness, gloom and anguish; and they will be driven into the darkness.â
Now note that in the verse below that it is church leadership that brings the âwickednessâ into the church:
Jeremiah 23:11-12 âBoth prophet and priest are profane; âin My house I have found their wickednessâ, says the Lord. Therefore their ways shall be like slippery ways in the darkness.They shall be driven on and fall in them; for I will bring disaster upon them...â
Curses Against Traditions
One of the greatest curses revealed in the Bible is against traditions revealed in the word âNicolaitanâ found in the messages to the seven churches in the Revelation. This is profound and prophetic.
Revelation 2:6, Revelation 2:15, speaks of and condemns the deeds and doctrines of the Nicolaitans:
The word âNicolaitanâ means to âconquer and control the people.â In those days a group of people arose in the church seeking to dominate and control the people (laity) by the separation of the clergy above the laity in traditions, clothing, names mannerisms and the like.
It wasnât long before the âdoctrine of the Nicolaitans became the deeds of the Nicolaitans. These doctrines and deeds become tradition and nullify the power of the church, which is why our Lord says He âhatesâ them.
The Catholic, Anglican and other orthodox churches have become champions in separating the clergy above the laity in names, titles, dress etc. to control them.
Here are some of the clothing items of the leaders of the Catholics and Anglicans which separates them from the laity:
Purple cassok, rabat, black shoes with buckles and purple socks, skullcaps, pectoral cross, scarlet mozzetta, silk biretta, gold rings, purple mantellatta, purple ferraiolone, plush hat, purple sash with fringes, unpleated surplice and much more!
The Bible says that we are not to call anyone âfather.â This is for the same reason of elevation above the people.
Today we have far too many who insist on being called âapostleâ or âman of Godâ or âfatherâ and the like.
Today the church is full of frauds and leaders with ulterior motives. Many of them support each other and their flock think they are on the right track.
Of course church leadership is very important. What Iâm referring to is the almost unnoticed pride of leadership for the ulterior motive of control.
Be careful of group speak and confirmation bias among the people.
Are you a passive dumpsite for spiritual trash?
Thankfully, there is another side to the story. Where Godâs word is at work by His Spirit, darkness gets turned into light and the shadow of deception and death has to flee.
So many cultures are being enlightened with the saving life of God today, especially in the east. Africa is seeing great revival in small obscure places, never heard of by the outside world. I recall once, when I was in the Navy on liberty, driving down a very long dirt road with new, active churches in every little cattle-post and village.
The Arab world is starting to see revival as the Muslim culture is thrown off.
Israel itself is stirring like an awakening giant.
These are exciting times my friends!
Brandon Smith Warns: âWe Are Already In The Midst Of An Economic Collapseâ¦ The Data Points Show An Economy In Severe Deteriorationâ¦ Not Recoveryâ
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
Introduction by Pastor Boyd
The world is not as it seems. Prophets of doom paint a different story. Thousands of retail stores closing in America, even McDonalds is shuttering 350 stores here and over 300 overseas. The stock market zooms off into oblivion with wild hopes that there is no bubble. But just like 2008 during the housing market scandal and derivative debacle, nothing has changed. No one sees the signs. Now there is movement afoot by the blacks to kill whitey an obvious attempt by the rabble rousers to start a race war. To say America is disintegrating before our eyes is an understatement. Read a short clip from Brandon Smith on the federal reserve: âIt is important to understand what the Fed actually is â the Fed is a weapon. It is a weapon used by globalists to destroy the American system at a given point in time in order to clear the way for a new single world economy controlled by a single managerial entity (most likely the IMF or BIS). This is the Fed's purpose. The central bank is not here to save the U.S. from harm, it is here to make sure the U.S. falls in a particular manner â a controlled demolition of our fiscal structure.â Think this is all bluster? Read onâ¦..
Peak Economic Delusion Signals Coming Crisis
In my article âThe Trump Collapse Scapegoat Narrative Has Now Been Launchedâ, I discussed the ongoing and highly obvious plan by globalists and international financiers to pull the plug on their fiat support for stock markets and portions of the general economy while blaming the Trump Administration (and the conservative ideal) for the subsequent crash. Numerous economic shocks and negative data which had been simmering for years before the 2016 elections are rising to the surface of the normally oblivious mainstream. This recently culminated in a surprise stock dive that stunned investors; investors that have grown used to the Dow moving perpetually upward, while the economic media immediately began connecting the entire event to Trump and the âComey memos,â which likely do not exist.
My position according to Trumpâs behavior and cabinet selection is that he is aware of this agenda and is playing along. That said, there is another important issue to consider â the participation of the ignorant in helping the Ponzi con-game continue.
There is a famous investorâs anecdote from Joe Kennedy, the father of John F. Kennedy, about the onset of the Great Depression â he relates that one day, just before the crash of 1929, a shoe shine boy tried to give him stock tips. He realized at that moment that when the shoe shiner is offering market tips the market is too popular for its own good. He cashed out of the market and avoided the crash that many people now wrongly assume was the âcauseâ of the Great Depression.
I donât know that this story is true, but if it is, it is an interesting example of peak economic delusion. We do not have quite the same investment environment as existed in those days. Today, algorithmic computers dominate the functions of the stock market, chasing headlines and each other, but this does not and will not save the economy from another depression. In fact, all they have done along with substantial aid from central banks is artificially elevate equities while every other fiscal indicator implodes.
But this farce in stocks could not succeed for so many years without help. I would say the real âshoe shine boysâ of our era are actually the dullards in the mainstream financial media, stabbing in the dark and desperate to believe that the astonishing ârecoveryâ since 2009 is real.
This attitude is evident in a recent article published by Bloomberg titled âProphets Of Doom With Too Much Gloomâ. The piece focuses not on alternative analysts like myself which are usually targeted with the mentally lazy âdoom and gloomâ label by the MSM. Rather, the targets are âbig namesâ in the investment world who now finally agree with what alternative analysts have been saying for some time. Names like Bill Gross and Paul Singer.
Bloomberg laments the sudden tide of negative predictions for their beloved Dow Jones and other exchanges from people who have the ear of the larger mainstream. Instead of considering their warnings and looking at the available evidence, Bloomberg instead decides to craft a conspiracy theory in which bond traders and hedge fund managers like Gross and Singer feel jilted by the unnatural rise in stocks and now scheme to lure investors away from the infinite fountain of wealth. Yes, thatâs right, Bloomberg accuses Gross and Singer of âstock envy.â
I say, Bloomberg is a modern day shoe shine boy.
Some might argue that Bloomberg is perfectly cognizant of the fact that the economy is in severe decline and that they are helping their central banker buddies keep the public in the dark through misinformation. While this may be true for Bloomberg himself and media elites like him, I think the average analyst at Bloomberg news is just as ignorant of the fiscal situation as most people. I think they are legitimately biased and will conjure whatever story they need to help them and others believe that the system is in ascendance rather than decline.
For those of us who were analysts before the derivatives crash of 2008, this mindset is nothing new. I remember the complete arrogance present in the mainstream just before the implosion; the sneering and attacks that were used in an attempt to silence anyone with the guts to openly suggest the fundamentals and the data did not support the investment exuberance. I remember many people asserting that that the economyâs progress was unstoppable, that another crash like 1929 was impossible, that the real estate market was an invincible engine. They were all wrong, yet, they were so confident. Most of these same people still work in the financial press to this day. Imagine thatâ¦
I would prefer to point to the hard data on hand than mere mainstream opinion. Maybe Iâm a little paranoid, but Iâve already seen mainstream analysts fail on numerous occasions.
First, consider the fact that the Federal Reserve, the key component along with other central banks around the world in the rise of stock markets, is now cutting off the flow of easy money through continued interest rate hikes. I predicted this move back in 2015 when almost everyone said the Fed would go to negative rates instead. Without no-cost Fed money to feed the machine, stock markets have essentially stalled, and now, there is talk of a âtech dumpâ on the horizon. With the vast majority of gains in equities the past year attributed to only five major companies, all of them tech oriented, this would be a disaster for stocks.
This is a considerable shift away from the last few years, in which it was expected by many that markets would expand exponentially for the foreseeable future. Now that the Fedâs quantitative easing and near-zero interest rates have been removed as fuel, the true economic picture is becoming clear, even to the mainstream.
According to the Atlanta Fed, US GDP in the first quarter of 2017 has declined to 0.7% , going back to lows touched on in 2014 after the Fed reduced QE.
The US has lost 5 million manufacturing jobs since the year 2000, and this trend has accelerated in recent years. Manufacturing in the US only accounts for 8.48% of all jobs according to May statistics.
102 million working age Americans do not currently have a job. This includes the 95 million Americans not counted by the Bureau of Labor because they assume these people have been unemployed so long they âdo not want to work.â
Thousands of retail outlet stores, the primary engine of the American economy, are set to close in 2017. Sweeping bankruptcies and downsizing are ravaging the retail sector, and internet retailers are not taking up the slack despite highly publicized growth. In 2016, online retail sales only accounted for 8.1% of all retail sales.
Oil inventories continue to amass as US energy demand declines. Declining energy demand is a sure sign of overall economic decline. OPEC and other entities continue to argue that âtoo much supplyâ is the issue; an attempt to distract away from the reality of lower consumption and the falling wealth of consumers.
Corporate earnings expectations continue their dismal path, suggesting that stock markets have been supported by central bank stimulus and blind investor faith in central bank intervention. The stimulus is now being cut off. How long before investor faith is finally lost?
These are only a few of the MANY data points that paint a very ugly picture for the US economy. The rest of the world is just as tenuous if not worse.
This is why when I hear the phrase âdoom and gloomâ I have to laugh and think of the shoe shine boys. These are people with limited experience in tracking the economy, or very short memories, or both. This is also the product of a vast misconception about economic crisis or collapse â the assumption that crisis and collapse are âeventsâ, that they happen suddenly and without warning. If the nation does not look like a television zombie drama tomorrow, there must not be a collapse. In truth, economic collapse NEVER happens without warning, because as I have said ten thousand times and will say ten thousand times more, collapse is a process, not an event. The data points above show an economy that is in severe deterioration, not recovery. Stock markets are next, not that stock markets matter much in the grand scheme of things.
It is unfortunate that so many people only track stocks when accounting for economic health. They have crippled themselves and their own observations, and actually condescend when confronted with counter-observations and data. They help globalists and international financiers by perpetuating false narratives; sometimes knowingly but often unconsciously. And, when the system does destabilize to the point that they actually realize it, they will blame all the wrong culprits for their pain and suffering.
The question is not âwhenâ we will enter collapse; we are already in the midst of an economic collapse. The real question is, when will the uneducated and the biased finally notice? I suspect the only thing that will shock them out of their stupor will be a swift stock market drop, since this is the only factor they seem to pay attention to. This will happen soon enough. In the meantime, anyone who discusses legitimate data and warns of the dangers to come is a âdoom and gloomer.â Mark my words, one day this label will be considered a badge of honor.
âThe Rapture Is So Close!â
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
I am a Family Physician. Two or three years ago I had a delightful almost-100 year old WW2 veteran as my patient. Physically he was skin and bones but his mental status was untouched by time. His eyes would shine with joy!
During one visit, in the context of our current world situation, he stated with great enthusiasm: âThe rapture is so close! It is so close! And just imagine, after it happens, there will be nothing left but Democrats!â I laughed so loudly that my nurse next door almost hit the big red emergency button!
I believe this brave patriot and brother in Christ was spot on. Please entertain a few conjectures with me!
Our Lord stated: ââ¦this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass awayâ (Mt. 24: 34-35 and Lk. 21:32-33 NASB).
Both Matthew and Luke clarify which generation this is. It is the generation that sees the fig tree (Israelâand Luke adds: âand all the treesââi.e. we Gentiles) put forth their leaves. It is the generation that finds itself at the end of the Braxton Hicks contractions, just as these prodromal (false labor) contractions transition into true labor cramps.
Letâs face it, wars, rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, persecutions, false prophets, plagues and solar phenomena have occurred throughout the Church Age. These are what Jesus calls âthe beginning of birth pangsâ (Mt. 24:8). But Jesus stated there will be a âthis generationââa terminal generation, if you will. But how do we determine what identifies the terminal generation?
As Norman Geisler once said: âA text taken out of its context is a pretext.â[i][i] The context is that Jesus was speaking to Jews living in their homeland. If I might take the freedom to add my thoughts between His words: âThis generation [of Jews in the land of Israel] will not pass away until all these things take place.â It could not have been the AD 33 generation because âall these thingsâ didnât take place then. So it must be the generation of Jews living in Israel that sees the signs of the end times (i.e âSummerââLuke 21:30) occurring.
Of all the end-times signs Jesus enumerates, the least obvious may be the most profound: The re-founding of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948. If you were a Jew in Israel at the time of Messiah, being scattered to the four corners of the world would probably not have been foremost on your mind. But it happened, just as Jesus predicted it would, in AD 70 (Luke 19:43-44; 21:44).
It seems to me that this singular event started the prophetic clock ticking toward midnight. In it, multiple âlast daysâ prophecies began their fulfillment. âWho has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once?â (Isaiah 66:8). Yes, Israel May 14, 1948.
âFor I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own landâ (Ezekial 36:24). âThe establishment of the modern state of Israel indicates this has initially begunâ[ii][ii]
So, if May 14, 1948 marks the beginning of the final generation, what exactly is the length of a generation? If we look to the Bible it gives us an interesting possibility. âAs for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty yearsâ (Psalm 90:10). The World Health Organization states that the average lifespan of an Israeli is 82.5 years[iii][iii], (80.6 years for a male and 84.3 years for a female). It appears that God has blessed the Jews with much strength!
Now for some interesting math: Scripture teaches that Jesus will take his Church home before the seven year period of tribulation. Letâs say the terminal Israeli generation has an 80 year shelf life. AD 1948 + 80 years = AD 2028. AD 2028 minus seven years (the tribulation). Is AD 2021.
There is a danger in date-setting. Jesus was quite clear that no human knows the day or hour of His return for the church (Mark 13:32). He did, however, say that when we see the signs of His soon coming we can be sure that âsummer is nearâ (Mt. 24:32). It would appear that we are on the verge of summer.
This leads to another question: How much of a generation must be living before one can say that that generation had all passed away? Does it mean >50% must be living when He returns or can it mean that He could wait until there was just one person left living from the 1948 generation? It seems to me more likely to be the former than the latter. Which would mean that truly any day now the church could be called home!
It does appear that we are âso close to the rapture!â to quote my WW2 friend above. How certain is it? Jesus said: âHeaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass awayâ (Luke 21:33). In other words, the very ground you are standing on now and the air you are breathing is less dependable than Jesusâ words. He will come just as He said He would. And it appears His coming is soon (Revelation 22:6)! Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus!
"An Event Is Going To Happen"
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
The question is subtly Malthusian in nature: how to deal with the worldâs teeming billions in one fell swoop while maintaining the existing social and political orders in all of the countries?
That order needs only to have one facade now: as Draconian an order that can be accomplished without throwing the world into a revolution against every government in existence.
The Draconian nature is as follows: CCTV cameras monitoring and cross-referencing every purchase, every bank withdrawal or deposit, every movement, and every social engagement. The Draconian nature is one of continuous monitoring, with a rise in prices and a steadily-declining world economy, as natural resources are quietly siphoned off by the politicos and the oligarchs to stockpile for their use when the plug is pulled.
As much Draconian repression and control under a âsoftâ police state with continuous monitoringâ¦while those in power lay the groundwork to collapse the system and kill off most of the worldâs populationâ¦while they remain safe, and in power.
The question of the existing social and political order being maintained is being addressed in all of the countries of the world. In the 1990âs the oligarchs rose to power after the Soviet Unionâs collapse: since Putin came to power, the oligarchs who delved in politics against the wishes of the Politburo were crushed. Those who knuckled under were given a slice of the pie with impunity and the âsign offâ of the politicos, and are âbigâ today, even with partial or complete nationalization of their private industries.
In the United States, we have seen a great deal of stockpiling by the government agencies and the administration under Obama. Secret warehouses in undisclosed locations have been filled with medical supplies stockpiled across the country in the event of a catastrophe. Cheyenne Mountain as a fallback command and control center has been reopened once again. Extensive networks of tunnels and bunkers have been constructed in, around, and leading to Denver, Colorado with secret deliveries night and day for more than eight years.
Billions of rounds of ammunition have been ordered and purchased by the DHS and all of the other alphabet agencies, including the U.S. Postal Service (which does have a role to play in COG and post-war âreconstructionâ). Emergency drills, to include catastrophic plague and nuclear war/terrorism have been gamed extensively over the past several years. All of these thingsâ¦the stockpiling of food and supplies, and the preparations for some massive event point to one thing: an event is (eventually) going to happen.
We have the âflash pointsâ around the world, in North Korea, in Syria, in Ukraine, and with the second Cold War that is forming between the U.S. and Russia. Those flash points are artificially created. We have some that are artificially created that can be blamed upon nature, such as the Ebola Virus and the looming disaster of Fukushima. War is the easiest way to bring it all about, plain and simple. Vladimir Putin just recently announced that a nuclear war between Russia and the United States would leave the world destroyed with no winners.
Not so: The governments and their elites of politics and business win in the end.
The governments of the world have to keep their citizenry under control until they execute the plan that eliminates the majority of the populations. War is truly the only way to do it in one fell swoop that leaves no one accountable at the end. Weâre going to see a âresetâ and the most likely thing to accomplish this is war. Historically it is the vehicle for which governments beleaguered by their citizens have been able to bypass controls in the open to subvert democratic processes and inculcate martial law and eventually totalitarian control. Weâre halfway through the year, and the situation in the world and domestically has not improved: it has worsened.
Many people have documented and filmed FEMA camps and preparations for martial law, the DUMB (Deep Underground Military Bases) projects and tunnel works filmed and reported on by Jesse Ventura and halted by the government, and the systematic grafting of procedures to be followed after an apocalyptic war or event. Such procedures include garnering of all human and natural resources under executive order (President Trump didnât repeal that one yet, now, did he?), the pervasive surveillance system, and the negation of Posse Comitatus and the control of the United States domestically in the event of a war or collapse of the government.
All that is lacking is the crisis. No government truly allows a crisis to go to waste, and all of the crises are contrived or crafted beforehand to allow them to occur. War has always accomplished the resets of all countries and empires in ages past, and this era will be no different, no matter who is at the helm of the ship: especially when the course is purposefully charted right for the rocks.
Thing is if the rapture happens would this not signal a stock market crash? The start of the Great Tribulation? Start of World War Three? The collapse of the dollar? Perhaps the elites are gearing up for one thing and God is looking at reciprocation, to return in kind. In other words what Godâs enemies want done to his chosen will be done to them!
Thank you Pennylynn for cleaning up my article. How did you do that so fast? Please pass on the info so I can do it myself please. Pastor Boyd
TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs Latest Tweet Warns Of Coming War: Ã¢ÂÂChinaÃ¢ÂÂs Help With North Korea Has Not Worked OutÃ¢ÂÂ
By Pastor Gary Boyd
ThereÃ¢ÂÂs a reason weÃ¢ÂÂve suggested that concerned Americans stock up on anti-radiation pills and CBRN rated Gas Masks and if President TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs latest tweet is any guide then time is running short.
While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!
While itÃ¢ÂÂs not an outright declaration of war, it certainly appears that the situation on the Korean peninsula is about to be taken to the next level, as noted by Zero Hedge:
TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs troubling statement follows an earlier tweet about North Korea, in which he said that Ã¢ÂÂThe U.S. once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim.Ã¢ÂÂ
So is this TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs implicit warning that he is about to launch an attack on North Korea, following a failed intervention by China, in retaliation for the death of Otto Warmbier?
In previous reports we highlighted the fact that not only does the North have the capability of hitting the United States with an electro-magnetic pulse weapon (EMP) detonated over the central United States, but it is believed that their nuclear and missile delivery capabilities are now such that U.S. coastal cities could well be targeted at the onset of any confrontation. Perhaps a first strike EMP weapon set off over North Korea would be the best idea. In fact, at the height of tensions earlier this year it is believed that the U.S. Navy and Airforce may have been hunting a North Korean submarine just off the coast of California.
Though the mainstream media has generally ignored and downplayed the threat, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned in April that the situation in the region has seriously deteriorated, which may explain why both Russia and China mobilized tens of thousands of troops to their borders with the North.
WeÃ¢ÂÂve seen such things before, most notably in the years ahead of World War I, when countries throughout Europe and Near Asia began mobilizing troops and equipment in anticipation of war. When the catalyst came in late June of 1914, armies across the region engaged within 30 days, leaving well over one million people dead by the end of the year.
TodayÃ¢ÂÂs situation is quite different, of course, because the weapons systems available to the United States, North Korea, Russia and China make it possible to kill one million people in the blink of an eye.
Whether the threat posed by the North Koreans is real or imagined, or whether Trump and Kim are simply posturing, are questions that we simply wonÃ¢ÂÂt be able to answer until after the fact.
We would hope that cooler heads prevail, but as we previously warned, a global catastrophe is being orchestrated by the elites, suggesting that we should make haste in preparing for the worst case scenario.
Isaiah 45:7 in the King James Version reads, “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.” How does Isaiah 45:7 agree with the view that God did not create evil? There are two key facts that need to be considered. (1) The word translated “evil” is from a Hebrew word that means “adversity, affliction, calamity, distress, misery.” Notice how the other major English Bible translations render the word: “disaster” (NIV, HCSB), “calamity” (NKJV, NAS, ESV), and “woe” (NRSV). The Hebrew word can refer to moral evil, and often does have this meaning in the Hebrew Scriptures. However, due to the diversity of possible definitions, it is unwise to assume that “I create evil” in Isaiah 45:7 refers to God bringing moral evil into existence.
(2) The context of Isaiah 45:7 makes it clear that something other than “bringing moral evil into existence” is in mind. The context of Isaiah 45:7 is God rewarding Israel for obedience and punishing Israel for disobedience. God pours out salvation and blessings on those whom He favors. God brings judgment on those who continue to rebel against Him. “Woe to him who quarrels with his Master” (Isaiah 45:9). That is the person to whom God brings “evil” and “disaster.” So, rather than saying that God created “moral evil,” Isaiah 45:7 is presenting a common theme of Scripture – that God brings disaster on those who continue in hard-hearted rebellion against Him.
If the word of God in scripture is a childish thing just because Einstein thought so then you are easily persuaded. After all did not some of the greatest brains on the planet give us the nuclear bomb? How is that working out for mankind? Just because you are brilliant with worldly things does not mean you will live forever as God promised if you are saved from your sins. Was not Hitler a brilliant man? Do you think he is in heaven? How about Tojo? Mussolini? All brilliant men who led their country down to a terrible fate. Some of the smartest academics in the world do not believe in God following socialism and the occult that is of the devil. What do you think their fate will be after leading so many astray?
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
It is not enough just to believe in God in these desperate times, for even the fallen angels believe. We must all pull together to help the unbelievers come to God in repentance for this time of the end of days is to save as many for God as possible. We cannot stand silent and do nothing as others preach the truth of God. We must witness for him in this time of Satanâs rule, for we will be held accountable for this time we are in.
The Love Of Many Shall Grow Cold
In these fast approaching end-days, the pressures, tests and challenges are intensifying. âThe love of many will grow cold.â There are wonderful answers and provisions in the Bible for those who will seek them out. There are many who will endure and many who will be swept away with the world!
Itâs not okay!
Itâs not okay and not enough to believe in Jesus â âeven the demons believe and shudder!â Itâs not okay to simply call yourself a Christian and think youâve arrived. Itâs not okay to measure yourself amongst yourselves, or the masses of these days, or most of the modern churches today.
You must come to salvation through the new birth and then set your heart and soul and every aspect of your life to follow our Lord, grow in Him and know Him more and more intimately.
You must be radical in your pursuit of our Lord in these days; otherwise you are in danger of being swept into mediocrity and onto the road to hell.
Today, the lives of many, Christians included, are filled with spiritual ignorance, emptiness, vacancy, and vulnerability to all manner of deception, error, sin, and modern idolatry.
People want acceptance and not rejection. Thatâs fine, but God will not accept you and your idols.
The essential, single-minded pursuit of God:
Yes, we are saved in an instant, but we need to âhunger and thirst for righteousness.â We need to have a driving desire, a longing, yearning, zeal and passion for truth in this dark, gloomy, world.
You cannot and will not counteract the war on truth in these days, if you are not selective, discerning, and single-minded in your hungering after our Lord and His truth. In many cases even the modern churches have conceded to error, concealed, shrouded and hidden the truth.
You need to spend time, separated to our Lord, alone in your deep pursuit of God and knowledge of His word and ways, in prayer and study. You must âtake heed that you are not deceivedâ!
Pursuit of God, if done right, produces discovery and revelation of our Lord. If done right, you will notice that it also produces a great disconnect with the world.
Our calling as believers and our purpose is to live above the world. It is to stand against the blast of the wind of the world and set the sail of our lives so that we can move forward against that ill-wind! It is to be other-worldly. Thatâs one of the reasons the world hates us â because we are not like them.
Do you fit in comfortably with the world and its ways? If you do, you need to get saved and begin to hunger after our Lord!
As a believer, itâs very hard to grow above the level of your church and its leader, if he and they are products of modern-world Christianity. Iâm not calling on anyone to leave their church â thatâs between God and you. But I am calling you to great heights in and with our Lord.
Guard your heart with all your strength! You canât have a heart that is wrong and live right! âBlessed are the pure in heart: For they will see God.â
Today much of the church, especially the spirit-less church is doomed and doesnât even know it. Their flock are pampered, passive, blinded wimps, going along with the dangerous flow of the world. Much of the modern church has married the world. Amazingly, the Bible prophesied it.
The sign of spiritual ruin is all around us, it is lukewarmness and a mixture of truth and error and the chasing after ear-tickling, motivational me-centred narcissistic stylized personalities. Benny Hinn and Joel Osteen come to mind.
Obstacles to your hunger for God:
âDo not set your heart after miracles, signs and wonders. They do not determine truth! When and if they come along, well and good! Even then question them. Truth can withstand scrutiny.
âDonât trust what the world thinks. It has been fashioned and formed by the god of this world.
âDo not trust yourself and your own heart!
Proverbs 28:26 âHe who trusts in his own heart is a fool.â
Jeremiah 17:9 âThe heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it?â
Job 28:13 âMan does not know its value (wisdom), nor is it found in the land of the living.â
âVery few people are aware of how much they have been formed and fashioned after the lives and opinions of modern man, the world system and hidden demons.
They have mixed themselves with the deadly mixture of truth and error. Mixture produces confusion and makes you lukewarm, ready to be âspat out by our Lord.â (Revelation 3:16)
Leviticus 19:19 âYou shall not let your livestock breed with another kind. You shall not sow your field with mixed seed, nor shall a garment of mixed linen come upon you.â
You canât find âmixtureâ being spoken well of in the Bible. It is universally condemned. It produces sterility.
âBe careful of the âloveâ crowd! They will lead you the wrong way! Are you surprised?
"God is love" does not mean love is God. If love is God that means that anything that is love is of God and is right. That is wrong and pure deception. Do you see how the devil cleverly reverses the truth to deceive and capture many?
Note that the powerful end-times, âperilous times,â verse in 2 Timothy 3:1-2 speaks condemningly of âLovers of self, the love of pleasureâ and more. Clearly then, everything that is of love is not necessarily of God! In fact these people have a form of godliness, but deny its power, which lets Satan rule.
God sends strong delusion to people who âbelieve the lie and had pleasure in unrighteousness.â (2 Thessalonians 2:11)
Donât tell me that everything that is love and pleasure is of God!
If you as a man say you love another man, love is involved. But is it of God because it is love? â Never!
True biblical love always includes rebuke and correction, measured against the Bible. âAs many as I love I rebuke.â (Revelation 3:19)
âDonât get hung up on hobby-horse doctrines and try to prove everyone wrong and yourself right. Donât centre on exposing of error!
Truth always exposes error, but you need insight, knowledge, understanding and wisdom to deal with error. You need the God-given weapons.
Sometimes people come under demonic influence by going after spiritual error without the spiritual strength of truth in their hearts. You need the supernatural power through the gifts of the Spirit to even see some deceptive error.
The occult and the believer:
Many believers have had an involvement with the occult in their lives, before being born-again. Some still mix various dark, condemned practices in with their Christian lives now. It is a far greater issue than most are aware of.
At the close of this age the battle will absolutely intensify in the spiritual, supernatural and with occult power at work.
You cannot have any involvement at all with these things as a believer. You must rip it all out of your life forever. Donât underestimate the great danger you will place yourself under if you have any participation with the following practices. Please read this entire section and take note of it.
Here are just some of the occult practices absolutely condemned in the Bible:
âDivination: It consists of fortune telling, consulting familiar spirits. âConsulting the dead: Which would normally be through a medium. âAstrology: It includes horoscopes, fortune telling, card reading, and the use of a prognosticator or star-gazer. âWitchcraft: It includes sorcery, spells, the use of enchanting materials like drugs, certain types of music, dancing and the like. â Idol worship: It includes the elevation, exaltation and consulting of charms, various items, art works, carvings etc. âDevil worship: It includes the direct worship and consulting of Satan himself.
Here are a few shocking verses dealing with this subject:
Leviticus 20:3 âI will set My face against that man and cut him off from his people, because he has given some of his descendants to Molech, to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name.â
Note in this verse above, the witchcraft resulted in God cutting the man off from his people. I know some Christians who have ventured back into satanic activity after being saved, who are forever cut-off from the people of God.
Acts 8:9-11 âThere was a certain man named Simon, who previously practised sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest saying, âthis man is the great power of God.â And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time.â
Note that Simon was âpreviouslyâ involved with the occult!
People run to people like this. People elevate and idolise them. People almost worship them. People lift them up onto a pedestal. People claim that these ones are great! People say that they must be of God because of the great power or insight that they have!!!!!
Do not think that because something, someone or some ministry appears to be âgreatâ it is of God automatically. Untold million are deceived this way.
Did you know that King Saul had within him a mixture of spirits? He committed suicide on the battlefield after consulting a witch!
This is not the way to hunger after God. You do not elevate anyone ever for their fame, insights, cult of personality (Obama), so-called miracles or supernatural doings.
Most of the illegitimate signs, wonders and insights these days are by people weak in spiritual character, who secretly want to elevate themselves. They want recognition and acceptance. They have a pride problem backed by Satan. They want you to âhungerâ for them and not Godâs truth through faith.
If you set your heart to blindly follow and hunger after any individuals, you will be led astray. You will not find the depths of God.
Acts 13:8-12 âElymas the sorcerer withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, âO full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.â And immediately a dark mist fell upon him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed...â
Acts 16:16-19 âNow it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune telling. This girl followed Paul and us and cried out, saying, âthese men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.â But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, âI command you in the name of Yeshua, the Messiah, to come out of her.â And he came out that very hour. But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas...â
What an incredible situation! Please note that it does Satan no harm to uplift the servants of God. Satan himself told the truth in this verse above. He said that these men were servants of God and they were. But there was an evil hidden agenda. Paul saw through the self-promotion!
Be very careful of individuals or entire ministries excessively promoting themselves, Watch out for manipulation â it is deadly. Watch out for hidden financial agendas. In most cases they are using our Lord as their sponsor. Be careful of people or ministries who reject you because you question them and their motivations.
Now, do you want to get closer to our Lord? Do you want progress in your hunger after Him? Read the verse below:
2 Timothy 3:8-13 âAs Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth; men of corrupt minds, disapproving concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all.â
These men resisted the truth. Can I say that again? They resisted the truth. They had only bits of it that suited them. They rejected the truth that they deemed objectionable! They could progress no further!
There are untold millions in this category. They are stuck where they are. They canât go any further even though they may want to. How many churches do you know that are stone dead? They are stuck in a perpetual rut. They will not open themselves to all of the truth.
People who have been directly involved in the occult should never be in the ministry. Of course they can be saved and forgiven, but there is almost always a problem of them falling back somewhere along the line.
If you have been directly involved in the occult, Satan regards you as his possession and ownership and he will not easily let you go. He may release you for a time. You have created a situation for yourself that is almost impossible.
You need to be actively on your guard all the time!
A word of warning: Donât ever contemplate getting into occult activity. It is often irreversible â donât take the chance!
My friends, if you as a believer do not grow in the things of God you will remain thoroughly worldly and you may think thatâs fine, but read on!
1 Corinthians15:19 âIf in this life only, we have hope in Messiah, we are of all men most pitiable.â
James 3:15 âThis wisdom (demonic) does not descend from above, but is earthly (worldly), sensual (self), demonic.â
Note from the verse above, that believers who are worldly, are descending and declining. It goes from worldly ways to self-orientation to being demonically driven. The direction is down.
The way out of the devilâs traps:
Many times people whoâve been involved in the occult feel trapped. Thereâs a good reason for that. In the Bible, the word used for âdivination,â which includes most of those satanic activities, is âpython.â (Strong's G4436)
A python is a snake that kills its prey by coiling around it and strangling it. The spirit of âpythonâ does just that. It slowly squeezes the breath and life of God out of you.
In these evil days many will turn to Satan for help because modern churches are not setting them free. Donât ever make a deal with the devil. It will trap you, and ultimately strangle you to death.
By Joel Joseph
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
Most Bible prophecy teachers believe that the yetâto-be fulfilled prophesied wars of Isaiah 17 dealing with the destruction of Damascus, the war of Psalm 83 and the war of Gog and Magog are separate events, because the nations involved are different.
I agree that what Iâm going to present to you now canât be cast in stone, but I have compelling and surprising evidence that is going to change the way many have looked at these wars before. What Iâve done for your benefit, is gone back to all the verses including the parallel verses and studied them afresh, including word studies.
I am not presenting this as ânew exclusive revelationâ. It is food for contemplation. If you want to keep to the regular view...well and good.
We are all going to find out very soon anyway! A major purpose of this edition is to motivate you to get ready in heart and knowledge and be ready.
Did you know that the gematria of the words âGog and Magogâ in Hebrew have the numerical value of 70? Did you know that the Torah speaks of 70 nations making up the world after the destruction of Babylon? Did you know that 70 nations are meeting in France on January 15th over the issue of ownership of Jerusalem and peace in the Middle East?
Did you know that the number 70 in the Bible means perfect spiritual order, but also means judgment and captivity, being associated with it in numerous places?
Good luck France â you are going to need it...youâre about to run headlong into the fury of God!
Can these three wars be the same event?
The Bible often makes reference to one event by different authors in different books of the Bible. Itâs like newsmen at an event. They see the same thing, but from different perspectives.
What if these three wars are one and the same, just seen differently by the different authors?
If these three wars are the same, it gives us a clear idea of when it will happen. It also sheds some new light on which nations will be involved. It also shows us just how close we are.
Why have the three wars been seen as separate events?
Psalm 83: This war has been traditionally seen as a separate event occurring some time before the fall of Damascus and the Magog war. The reason cited is that the nations of the Psalm 83 war are not found in the other wars.
The nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war are: Edom and the Ishmaelites. The people of Moab, Ammon, Philistia, Tyre and Assyria. In modern terms, these are the nations of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and an inclusive reference to the Palestinians, which by extension would be Hamas, Hezbollah and others.
Some of these will also be in the war of Gog and Magog, but Ezekiel extends it much further:
Ezekiel 38:6 (Magog) â...and many nations with you.â Verse 9: â...you and your troops and many nations with you.â
The Damascus war also includes many other nations:
Isaiah 17:12 âWoe to the multitude of many people who make a noise like the roar of the seas, and to the rushing of nations, that make a noise like the rushing of many waters.â
My point is, we canât be totally dogmatic on the nations involved in these wars. The revealed nations are the major players, but as we have seen, they all include a great mixture of other nations.
You canât eliminate nations, because they are not mentioned by name, when they may be implied in the general âmany nationsâ.
Some teach that the Psalm 83 war was fulfilled in the âWar of Independenceâ in 1948. You can apply some of it to that war, but when studying the passage, you see it is still in the future. This war ends this way: Psalm 83:16-18 âFill their faces with shame, that they may seek your name O Lord...that men may know that You, whose name alone is Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.â
This implies that many of the participating Arab nations will seek the Lord and be found by Him at the end. This is a parallel with Isaiah 19:25, where many Arab nations get saved.
The participants of the Damascus war:
Letâs have a look at one of the parallel verses to Isaiah 17, which is the main chapter on the Damascus war. Amos 1:5-17 sheds additional light on this war.
Amos 1:5 âI will break the gate of Damascus and cut off the inhabitants from the valley of Aven and the one who holds the sceptre from Beth Eden. The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir, says the Lord.â Verses 7-8: âI will send fire on the wall of Gaza. The remnant of the Philistines (modern day Palestinians) shall perish, says the Lords.â Verse 13 âFor the transgressions of Ammon (Palestinians today) I will not turn away its punishment...because they tried to enlarge their territory.â
So the Bible says that Syria will go captive to Kir. There are two possibilities for âKirâ One is a small outpost in Jordan and the other is a larger area in Iran with its city called Kerman.
If Syria is to go captive to Kir, it is very likely that it is Iran. Today, Iran, Syrian, Russia and all of these surrounding nations are in play.
So when the Damascus war comes to its bitter end, Amos places Iran as the final captor.
This means that the Damascus war could be part of the great Magog war, because Iran (Persia) is very much part of it.
If this is the case it also means that the entire inclusive conflict will begin before the tribulation begins or just into it, due to the seven-year clean up period. (See further down)
Ammon is in Jordan, but by extension includes many of the Palestinian people.
Some of these nations are also present in the war of Magog. Bear in mind that the Bible doesnât have to name every nation. A huge horde of nations are implied in the term âAnd many nations with them.â
Bear in mind that the Damascus war has to place it at the end of these wars, because it is ânever to rise againâ. It canât be destroyed, never to rise again, and then rise again to participate in either Psalm 83 or Magog.
The causes of the three wars, collectively called WW111:
War 1: Psalm 83:4 âLet us cut them off (Israel) from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.â
Psalm 83: 12 âLet us seize for our own use these pasture lands of God.â
War 2: Isaiah 17:14 (Damascus) âThis is the portion (destruction) of those who plunder us and the lot of those who rob us.â
War 3: Ezekiel 38:12 âYou will come to take plunder, to take booty (spoil)...to take livestock and goods. Verse 13: âTo take silver and gold.â
So, now we see similarities between the causes of all three wars.
As we all well know, Israel is in the firing line now. It is greatly despised by many nations, but why? The Bible calls it an âancient hatred.â
Israel is rich with economic abundance as well as being the bread-basket of the world in many respects. Israel has turned the desert into a fertile field! (Isaiah 35:1-2)
Most of Israelâs surrounding nations are in abject poverty especially as far as agriculture goes. They would love to get their hands on this abundance.
But there is a greater cause for the wars.
Ezekiel 35:5-6 âBecause you (Arabs / Palestinians) have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end. Therefore, as I live, says the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you...â
Please note the timing of this ancient hatred. It manifests during the time of Israelâs âcalamityâ and when their âiniquity comes to an end.â This is in the tribulation period, but may begin beforehand. Either way itâs not hard to see that it is now or close to it.
We can easily understand the first revealed cause of WW111, which is to take over the economic wealth and agricultural abundance of Israel. But the second cause, which is to destroy Israel, is a bit more involved. It stems from the Arab / Palestinian / mass-mediaâs âancient hatred.â
This hatred for the Jews includes resistance to their God-given covenant ownership of all of the land of Israel. The so-called âoccupationâ and the so-called âsettlementsâ are the fuse that will set WW111 ablaze.
You see, a nation canât just go in and claim the spoils of produce, economic wealth and agriculture without a good reason. The lie of the occupation is the very smoke-screen reason!
The poverty of attacking Arab nations is also a reason. They may have oil wealth, but thatâs the end of it. Russia is also pretty close to economic collapse and most certainly, food poverty.
Nothing is new! Itâs the âeternal Arab hatredâ and jealousy for Godâs blessing on the Jews. Itâs the hatred for Godâs choice. Itâs the conflict of the ages between God and Satan. Itâs the satanic empowerment of the mass-media. Itâs because the Jewish Messiah will soon come to Jewish Jerusalem! Itâs because so many of the riches of the world, including the Bible came to us through the Jews.
This everlasting and ancient hatred must be seen in light of the contraposition of the everlasting and ancient covenants and promises of God to the Jews and their land and Jerusalem.
The mystery of the seven-year clean-up:
The Great war of Gog and Magog contains a mysterious seven-year clean up after the war.
Ezekiel 39:9 âThose who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons...and they will make fires with them for seven years.â
Here we are told that the clean up after the war will take seven years. The weapons are burnt, implying that there may have been some sort of contamination or residue upon them. The point is that the seven-year clean-up would not likely extend into the Millennium. In other words the war does not take place at the end of the tribulation period as many believe, but right at the beginning.
The war could and most probably will occur just before the tribulation begins. This would also âallowâ the other two wars to be part of it.
Bear in mind that the clean-up takes seven years not the war. The war itself may be very short in duration.
This war could in fact be the subject or part of the subject of the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement. "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
I agree that there are many characteristics of this war that appear to indicate that it is a tribulation period war. It may end up being so, but I doubt it because of this seven-year clean-up.
This war is found in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39. Bear in mind that in the original there are no chapter headings or division. This means that the war comes right after Ezekiel 37. This chapter is referred to as the âdry bonesâ chapter, in which the Jewish people begin to come to life spiritually. It is also when they are restored to their land and the âtabernacleâ (temple) is set up.
The Jews are beginning to come to life spiritually right now. Yes there is a way to go, but these things can and will happen quickly. The Jews are back in their land and have been since 1948. Again the 2nd Exodus is far from complete, but it is on the go now. We still await the Temple, but that also could happen quickly and is already all over the Israeli media.
So it looks like many ducks are in a row already!
And what of Donald Trump?
In previous editions, Iâve said that the US may be indicated in the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:13. It speaks of nations called Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and the young lions, implying that they are allies of Israel in this conflict, coming against those coming to âtake plunderâ.
âShebaâ is Saudi Arabia today, âDedanâ is Yemen and the âmerchants of Tarshishâ were people from Spain who traded fabrics and other products with what is today Britain. The lion is the symbol of Britain, so the âyoung lionsâ would be the commonwealth nations, including the USA.
There are already many signs of softening relations between Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Israel. This also implies that Donald Trump is walking onto the stage as an ally of Israel just at the right time!
Donât go overboard on these identifications, but they are most certainly food for thought, and a bit more than speculation.
So who is the aggressor?
The media keeps telling the ignorant and uniformed, that itâs all the fault of the Jews and they are the aggressors. But the Bible reveals the opposite.
Joel 3:19 âEgypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of violence against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land.â
The verse above is most important. It identifies Egypt, which is still the same today, but also âEdomâ which is present day Jordan. It is also the root of many of the Palestinians today. So we can say that it refers to the Palestinian Arabs. The verse says that they (Palestinians) have shed innocent blood (Jews) in the land of Israel.
Psalm 137:7 âRemember O Lord against the sons of Edom, (Arabs / Palestinians) the day of Jerusalem, who said, âraze it, raze it, to its very foundations.ââ
The Palestinian people today can trace their identity back to the people of Ishmael, those of the âhouse of Esauâ, those of Edom, Ammon, and those of the Amalek peoples.
Bear in mind that there is no actual real Palestinian people. They came from numerous Arab nations, including Egypt. There never was a Palestinian state called Palestine with its own flag, national identity, language, currency and all the other things that constitute a nation state.
When the land of Israel was briefly called âPalestineâ it was under the British mandate and Jewish ownership.
This is the year of WW111. It is also the year of world war against the truth.
The world has become numb and immune to the shocking scenes of daily destruction in the cities of Syria. It seems that very little will shake the world out of their comfort zones and complacency. But beware! The Lord will begin to shake everything that can be shaken very soon. Hebrews 12:26, "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven."
Prophecy watchers need to be full of the knowledge of Godâs word and always ready for our Lord to reveal new things or aspects of prophecy as they unfold.
more on this later...........
President Trump is ridding the country of bureaucratic parasites
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
The challenges President Trump faces are far reaching, extending to all aspects of governing this great nationâissues that touch our lives in one way or another. They consist of deconstructing radical job killing regulations; repatriating multinational corporations; reforming the complex tax system; repealing the abomination of Obamacare; improving our domestic infrastructure by lifting restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars worth of job-producing American energy reserves like shale, oil, coal, and natural gas; lifting the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and completing energy infrastructure projects such as the Keystone Pipeline.
Military Build Up
Rebuilding our military is high on President Trumpâs list of making America great again (which includes taking care of and honoring our great veterans). He is also working to undo the damage done by the former Obama Administrationâs crusade to undermine the police.
Additionally, the following issues are also being addressed: crushing militant Islamic terrorism; arresting and deporting illegal alien criminals; securing our borders (which includes building the wall across the southern border), eliminating lawless sanctuary cities, scaling down government overreach imposed by the so-called environmental laws and regulations; strengthening our economy by identifying and ending all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers; dealing with numerous domestic and foreign policies, and restoring Americaâs leadership in the world. These are just some of issues our new president is addressing.
President Trump is encountering intense opposition from many members in Congress when it comes to actually moving forward with various aspects of his pro-America agenda. Many members of Congress are controlled by people who were not voted into office, primarily unelected bureaucrats (the âswampâ).
Going After Special Interests
These special interest groups and lobbyists have a strong hold on Democrats and far too many Republicans. It is too early in Trumpâs presidency to see how this simmering battle between him and the official âWashington insidersâ will play out. Nonetheless, progress is being made; overall our country is already in much better shape than it was before President Trump took office.
The number of new jobs exceeds 500,000 if you include the monthly job reports from January, February, and March -- the most recent three months for which data has been released. The net gain in jobs over that period was 533,000. America is going back to work!
Population Not Buying Into Propaganda
In 2016 the Huffington Post, known for its anti-Israel bias predicted that Hillary Clinton had a 98.1% chance of winning the presidency, which would have meant a mere 1.6% chance for Donald Trump to be victorious. The incessant attempts to demoralize the population and stop votes for candidate Trump fizzledâdespite the mediaâs all-out blitzkrieg against him. They failed then and as we can see, they are failing today. Despite the brazen ongoing circulation of fake news, overwhelming numbers of patriotic Americans are not buying into the mediaâs hysterical anti-Trump propaganda.
Trump Stopping Federal Land Grab
Previous liberal administrations, especially the deceptive lawless Obama Administration have greatly harmed and betrayed our nationâcreating so many serious problems that they seem insurmountable. With the stroke of a pen on his way out the door at the end of his term, Obama seized land from Utah and Nevada to add to his total land grab of over 553 million land and sea acreage, making it all unavailable to the American peopleâdeclaring it all government property.
He also smugly declared that the action he took cannot be undone; that it is irreversible. Obama was allowed to simply snatch land from under the feet of the American people because of the Antiquities Act of 1906. The Act was initially intended to set aside small portions of land for monuments and national parks, but has since been abused by lawmakers to control large quantities of property.
President Trump is already taking steps to stop this excessive land-grab and find a way to reverse this abuse of government power. He has ordered the Interior Department to review national monument designations dating back twenty years for millions of acres of land, pointing out that former presidents have abused the system. He has vowed to return such authority to citizens and state lawmakers. At issue is the 1906 Antiquities Act, which gives presidents authority to âprotectâ land.
President Trump said the law also gives the federal government âunlimited power to lock up millions of acres of land and waterâ and that it has been used on hundreds of millions of acres. He has vowed to âend these abuses.â Government land grabs hinder economic growth by denying the exploration and use of our natural resourcesâwhich would ultimately result in energy independence. This government overreach of land confiscation also prohibits human settlement in those specific areas, wasting good land which could be used to build new homes and create thriving communities and businesses.
Government abuses against the American people seem unending. But God still intervenes in our lives and we have a new president who loves and respects this country. He is a great advocate for liberty, individual freedoms and prosperityâthe basic tenets upon which this nation was foundedâas documented in the Constitution of the United States.
Greedy Officials Undermining Americans
Rogue government officials in every state throughout the U.S.A. are working to undermine the constitutional rights of the American people. Activist liberal judges use their power to abrogate our constitutional system; they wrap their judicial tyranny around the lives of the American people.
Judges are not appointed to conduct foreign policy undermining federal laws and the constitutional powers of the president of the United States. But Obama appointees are doing exactly that (for the time being until they can be stopped by the United States Supreme Court). We can see a concentrated effort by corrupt leftist activist judges trying to stop President Trump from enforcing existing laws and succeeding as president.
A pattern has been established over the years by liberal Democratic presidents appointing biased leftist judges to actively work against the rule of law, which in turn helps facilitate the implementation of lawless global tyranny. When liberals lose at the ballot box they turn to judicial activists to get their way.
Obama Using NSA to Spy
Political espionage is another unconstitutional weapon being used to try to take down our new president. The tentacles of the globalist criminals are strategically woven into all aspects of government, education, business, you name itâtheir evil presence can be found nearly everywhere. The Obama regime has already been cited for spying on the American people.
President Trump is obviously for the American people, and our new pro-life president does not shy away from acknowledging Almighty God. He is taking deliberate steps to undo the damage done by the enemies of American sovereignty. President Trump is working to strengthen our God-given rights for the pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Going After Terrorists
On April 18, 2017, the same day President Trump signed his âBuy American, Hire Americanâ executive order, Adam Credo reported in the Washington Free Beacon that federal authorities have opened investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS warned that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike âeach and every single day.â This effort to make our country safer, identify and weed out dangerous people would have never happened under Obamaâs watch.
We can thank the previous Obama Administration, former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton for keeping our borders wide open for decades. Many enemies of this country have already invaded our country. The Trump Administration has been able to dramatically slow down the flow of illegal aliens entering our nation, but it will take more time and effort to firmly secure the borders, and to find ways to carefully vet those who seek to enter the USA.
We can also credit former president, Bill Clinton for enabling North Korea to have nuclear weapons; a very delicate and dangerous situation threatening the world at this very moment. âThe North Korean deal of 1994 is the prototype for why open societies should not negotiate arms control agreements with rogue regimes,â said Robert Kaufman, professor of public policy at Pepperdine University. âThe North Koreans duped Jimmy Carterâan emissary of Clinton, and the Clinton Administration to subsidize the North Korean nuclear program in exchange for the counterfeit promise that North Korea would limit itself to civilian nuclear power.â
$150 Billion to Iran With $400 Million Payoff for Hostages
Obama made the same terrible mistake with his Iran deal. He made a deal with the number one terrorist state, essentially enabling it to eventually create nuclear weapons. Whenever Obama tried to undermine Israel during his tenure as president, his anti-Semitic bias and hatred of Israel was loud and clear. The disastrous deal he made with Iran is most dangerous for Israel because those dollars are now going to further bolster terrorists worldwide. These reckless liberal presidents need to be held accountable for the damage they have done to the security of our nation and others.
President Trumpâs call for âextreme vettingâ is greatly needed and methods to investigate those who are already here illegally or legally must be a priorityâin order to identify and stop those who intend to cause us harm.
We can be sure those who comprise the fascist leftâthe irrational hate-filled hostile Democrats, the leftist lapdog propaganda media along with some turncoat RINO Republicans, rogue Washington insiders, liberal lawless activist judges and the paid loony tune activist protestors (agitators) will continue to oppose President Trumpâs administration as they work to stop the efforts of the globalistsâthe godless tyrants who are trying to takeover our sovereign nation. With positive inroads being made by President Trump to investigate and bring to justice those who pose a threat to our country he is hoot on the trail of treasonous seditious traitors.
We know one of the methods of the fascist left is to target good people and try to take them down. When it comes to President Trump, they have outdone themselves and yet he remains standing. His pro-American agenda is moving forward. He has made a lot of progress in a very short time.
An example of how deranged and brainwashed some people have become can be seen in this ânewsâ headline recently posted on a number of websites: âCry Baby Students Say Truth Is a Tool of White Supremacists.â I am unable to come up with any words to adequately comment on such a ridiculous statement and belief. But it makes perfect sense when analyzing the ongoing demise of any kind of common sense to be found amongst the dumbed-down, brainwashed college population.
The politically correct days of not investigating mosques and other possible terrorist hideouts will be over, thanks to the Trump Administrationâs new policies of stopping terrorism full-force, and not appeasing the enemy. According to DHS Secretary John Kelly there have been at least 37 âISIS-linked plots to attack our countryâ since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.
MS - 13 Gangs Being Removed
Even with the recent slow-down of illegal aliens entering our country, our borders still need to be effectively secured.
Secretary Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that there is evidence terror-linked individuals continue to exploit our national security weaknesses and are entering the United States from all angles.All of these security weaknesses can be attributed to the previous presidents who took a weak stance on enforcing immigration laws. Fortunately Trump is going after drug peddling gangster types like MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha; also known as simply MS or Mara) is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles in the 1980s. The gang later spread to many parts of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and is active in urban and suburban areas. Most members are ethnically of Central American origin, principally El Salvador. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he believes the gang âcould qualifyâ as a terrorist group. In El Salvador, MS-13 has already been designated as a terrorist organization. Ms-13 members in the US amounts to no more than 10,000 and 30,000 worldwide.
Trump stated that the Obama administration âallowedâ MS-13 to âform in citiesâ across the country, helping distribute drugs coming in from the Mexican cartels to the sanctuary cities that increased on the Obama watch. ICE is now arresting these punk gangs putting them in jail or deporting them back to their own countries.
Past Presidents Were Facilitators
I will never forget when George W. Bush made this gushing doe-eyed statement, âFamily values donât stop at the Rio Grande River.â He is all for illegal aliens getting into and staying in our country under the guise of âcharitableâ amnesty. I knew then for sure that he is a sell-out open borders globalist just like Obama and the Clintons.
To add fuel to the fire of Islamic terrorism, in May of 2011, the former administration of Barack Hussein Obama eliminated the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) program requiring non-citizens from high risk countries to register in a federal databaseâprimarily Arab and Muslim men from many high risk countries. How progressive of Obama to make it easy for Muslim terrorists to penetrate our borders and place the lives of Americans at risk.
âWe donât know their intentions,â John Kelly said during an address at George Washington University. âWe donât know why theyâre here or why theyâre coming. We are completely blind to what theyâre capable of.â The United States, he continued, is âunder attackâ from a wide variety of bad actors, including âfailed communist states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.â
Bring down heaven by praying and fasting.
Written by Pastor Gary Boyd
My dear friends in Christ, prophecy is not meant to frighten but only meant to enlighten us and give us hope. No matter how dark it gets in the coming days Jesus never will leave us or forsake us, but will walk and work with us like it says in Matthew 28:20, âTeaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.â As the coming darkness deepens the light in Christ in all of us will grow brighter.
In Titus 2:12-14 our God spells it out for us, âTeaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.â
Jesus the Blessed Hope
As you might suspect God did not wish us to walk in hopelessness. He intended us to be children of faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for Hebrew 11:1, âNow faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.â God is calling us as ambassadors of Christ to be hope distributors in these last days as it says in 2 Cor. 5:20, â Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.â Yes it may be so that America may collapse, but there is another possibility, a real hope, a grand revival!
There is biblical evidence of this. If Americans listen and turn around, judgment can be softened or even averted, as it was for Nineveh.
Jonah 3: 4-5, 10, âAnd Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.â
The True Church
As a pastor I believe strongly that we, as the true church, are on the threshold of a whole new dimension of Godâs grace and glory. I believe we will be like a 21st century church with first century power; we were handpicked by God to live in these dark times, an unleashing of Godâs wonderful glory, an anointing that past generations have prayed and fasted for is coming; God I believe is preparing us for a far greater testimony than the majority of people of all generations have ever heard about.
Now is the perfect time to intensify our fasting and prayer for America and its leaders. After i had two failed marriages I turned to God in fasting and prayer for thirty days and he sent me an inspiration of light and pointed me to my new wife. We have been married now for twenty six years and I praise the Lord everyday. Every time people humble themselves in prayer and fasting, without exception, God will do something extraordinary in your life. Even wicked king Ahab, a man who sold out to the devil, averted judgment when he humbled himself with prayer and fasting.
1 Kings 21:27-29, âAnd it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly. And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.â
It is my strongest advice then if you are a believer God wants us to take positions as ambassadors on earth with the help of the holy spirit God sent us at Pentecost and if we pray and fast he will then heal our land, and we will win millions for Christ before his coming.
When you become born again the Holy Spirit comes to live on the inside of you and the anointing of God becomes available to you. The anointing is the supernatural ability to accomplish what God has created you for. I believe that Jesus is leading us to bring the manifest presence of His Holy Spirit into our country with the goal of seeing true life changing revival, a great awakening.
We must break the mold of religious tradition and thinking. We must be totally dependent upon the Holy Spirit for His leading and guidance as we lead others deeper into the river of Godâs thought. Our Lord is coming soon, be prepared.

The Bible isnât exactly clear on what sort of political system a nation should have, but it does contain many vital principles. In politics we are essentially dealing with the world system, so a theocracy is not required for any nation, but a nation under God is!
In other words, a nation should always have God above its constitution and respect the law of God.
The Bible does come pretty close to spelling out the political system required for the State of Israel, which is what much of this edition is about â and the arising new monster threat to Israel, of which very few are aware.
In this edition I want to have a look at some surprising facts about the politics of God for the nations and for Israel.
I will also look at some of the big principles and philosophies of democracy and related issues.
Iâll also have a further look at some of the issues of the recent US election.
The destruction of globalism:
Globalism is the agenda of Satan and the worldâs fiscal and political elite, the establishment, the worldâs liberals and others. Globalism sounds so good. It means togetherness, unity and âletâs all love one another right now.â This is the way to build world peace they believe.
Everyone must all be one, in this brave new world, living side by side with LGBTs, university intellectuals, liberal democrats and all people. Globalism creates a strong new world, they believe!
Yes, you can even find globalism in the Bible:
Genesis 11:6 âIndeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them.â
Do you see the power in unity (globalism)? âNothing will be withheld from them.â That would include world peace. The rest of this portion of scripture goes on to describe Godâs destruction of this effort at Babel, including the full destruction of Babylon.
The exact opposite of globalism, Godâs way, is revealed in the hated instruction for nations in Acts.
Acts 17:26 âGod has made from one blood, every nation (ethnic tribe) to dwell on the face of the earth, and determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, so that they should seek the Lord...â
The Bible is the only book whose system, when applied can make you truly free. All other political systems enslave you to man, under the false promise of peace, liberty and freedom.
There are two major sweeping themes to be aware of now. These are the rejection of globalism by the masses and the rejection of mass Muslim migration into Western nations. These two alone could cause a much bigger crack in the world than many think.
The UKâs Brexit and the US election shows the masses now voting against the establishment. Poland is about to do the same. Votes are coming up in Italy, France and others. They are all expected to show the same swing away from the globalist agendas.
âââPolitics in concert with the mass-media has a massive, deadly agenda which is not to give you peace or make you better. Its agenda and objective is to change you into one of them, so that the devil can walk in and have easy access to you. It is to insert into you their values, lack of virtues and make you a true world-human â a dead machine with God removed.
The agenda of the worldâs politics, the mass-media and its rulers is to produce whatâs best for Satan.
Liberalism believes that any truth must justify itself before the god of collective human reasoning. Toleration of all things in and with their sin is the highest value of the liberal.
True Christianity is rooted in the supernatural. Liberalism is rooted in naturalism with the âsuperâ (God) missing, and sin at home within.
Liberalism has as its main objective â world peace, but Satanâs way. The uniqueness of the cross is that it separates, and divides between Godly ways and Satanâs.
The catch phrase of all liberals is: âEvery day in every way we are getting better and better.â
They all have no answer for sin. They all reject the cross...they have a sin-filled âbetter.â
When you remove God from a nation or society a horror-inverse begins to take place. Here it is:
The cycle of doom:
There is a well identifiable, repeating pattern in history, which runs from liberty to tyranny. Liberty with God removed becomes tyranny.
Freedom is not real freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. Thatâs Satanâs way.
It is the knowledge of God in the land that produces restraint. (Hosea 4:2) Democracy with God removed becomes intrinsically evil and a system of Satan.
If you want to remain an ignorant, uninformed idiot, just let your primary source of everything be the politicians and mass-media. They are guaranteed to deceive you. If you want to be truly liberated, free, full of truth and holiness, let your primary source be the word of God, the Spirit of God, and put the mass media right down at the bottom of the list.
Godâs word on politics:
For your benefit here are some important verses on the politics of God for the Christian:
1 Timothy 2:1-4 âPray for Kings and all in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.â
This verse above, gives us the very purpose of politics under God. It is that we may live a quiet, peaceable life in an environment where the gospel can go out unhindered, to get people saved.
Psalm 33:12 âBlessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.â
Note the word âblessedâ in the verse above! It comes to a nation whose constitution has respect and reverence for God and His law. Now have a look at the exact opposite in the verse below:
Deuteronomy 28:47-48 âBecause you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and in need of all things; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.â
Do you see how poverty and failure comes to a nation in the verse above?
Now read the verse below. Note that a nation must have a pro-Israel stance. Do you know that every nation on earth ever, that has not done so, has collapsed or been destroyed somewhere down the line. Britain turned on Israel, now look what has happened to them. Some are still awaiting their destruction which is coming soon.
Isaiah 60:12 âThe nation and kingdom which will not serve you (Israel) shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.â
Genesis 12:3 âI will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.â
Democracy will kill Israel, or will it?
Thatâs an emotive headline. Itâs only partially true. Israelâs political system is a multi-party democratic Parliamentary system with an elected President and an independent judiciary.
But hereâs the catch, and the reason why the world will go crazy over this issue. The Israeli electorate does not include the people of the so-called âoccupied territories.â They do not have voting rights in Israel itself.
The people of the âterritoriesâ have their own internal political parties and system. This is why Israel is often (falsely) called an apartheid state.
There are 10.7 million Palestinians in these âterritories.â 95% of them are Muslim. They have the fastest growing population in the world.
25% of the Israeli population are Arabs. 81% of them are Muslims. They have full, equal, voting rights if they are resident within the State of Israel itself and not the âoccupied territories.â Arabs currently hold ten seats in the Knesset. It is not an apartheid state!
A full, all inclusive, one man, one vote system, including those of the âoccupied territories,â would immediately destroy the Jewish State! Israel would become a Muslim state in five seconds, simply due to the numbers.
So what do we do with this conundrum?
Now, Iâm again going to intentionally offend many of you.
You have raised democracy to God-status. You think manâs choice is the final answer if itâs in the majority. You blind fools. You deserve to be deceived!
You think that the majority is right, because they are the majority! You think you are wise and can see! In case you didnât get it â you are blind, stupid fools!
You say (especially all you heathens in the UN, EU and others) that the democratic way is to throw all of Israel, including the âterritoriesâ into one big melting pot and winner takes all. âThatâs democracyâ, you say!
Do you know what a constitution is? It is just the same as a covenant. Here I have spelt out Godâs eternal, political constitution for Israel. Here's a few:
Deuteronomy 4:40 âYou shall keep His statutes and commandments that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.â
Deuteronomy 1:8 âSee I have set the land before you; go in and possess (Lit=occupy) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers â to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them and to their descendants after them.â
Genesis 17:18-21 âAbraham said to God, âO that Ishmael might live before You!â Then God said: âNo, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendant after him.â
God excludes the so-called Palestinian territories from His constitution!
The UN, EU and others are now looking at a new one-state solution for Israel in light of the continued failure of the two-state solution. But it is this one state, which includes the people of the âterritoriesâ as part of Israel.
This would be nothing but the transformation of all of Israel into an Islamic Palestinian State... just what Satan wants!
Israelâs three choices are: âA One- State Solution. âA Two - State solution. âAn independent democratic Jewish State excluding the âterritories.â Only one, the latter, is Godâs choice!
The Palestinians have repeatedly said (and demonstrated), that no Jew will be allowed into an âIslamic Israel,â if it ever came about. Interestingly, the blinded, biased, mass-media, the voice of Satan, has never questioned that extreme Nazi-like apartheid ever. The reason is because they are of the same spirit!
Yet they continuously condemn Israel for its obedience to Godâs word and His covenant promises!
Mike Pence: âIsrael is not hated for what she does wrong, but for what she does right. Israel is hated by terrorists and the failed states that support them. Israel is hated because she is free.â
You can be very, very sure that the mass media will inspire, influence and motivate the next Holocaust, which they will be partly responsible for creating and supporting!
âºGod commanded the Jews never to assimilate into the nations of the world in their dispersion. They have never been able to assimilate! Have you ever wondered why? The reason is to preserve their identity, biblical value system with the traditions and convocations of God.
Assimilation has always been forbidden by our Lord.
Zechariah 10:9 âI will sow them among the peoples (nations), and they shall remember Me in the far countries. They shall live together with their children, and they shall return.â
Understand that the dispersion does not mean that God is finished with the Jews or the land, yet the Palestinians today believe the land and the city is theirs! In fact the very purpose for the command not to assimilate, is for the great end-time Second Exodus and return.
What is coming now, very soon is an all out conflict between Godâs will and choice and Satanâs.
Will the USA now stand with Godâs will and choice? Will the USA facilitate Godâs choice for Israel?
So far, it looks like it.
Here is terrible indictment upon the mass-media and the nations that turn from the ways of God:
***Jeremiah 7:28 âThis is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.â
***Jeremiah 8:8-9 âHow can you say, âwe are wise, and the law of the Lord is with usâ? âLook the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?ââ
Biblical characteristics of Islam:
The following characteristics are derived from the verses listed. They apply to the people who became our modern day Arabs, which in turn is applied to Islam, although obviously not exclusively.
âThey live by the sword. (Genesis 27:40-41)
âThey live by violence against their brother (Israel). (Obadiah 1:10)
âThey are wild men, unrestrained, with their hand against every man. (Genesis 16:12)
âThey are scheming, betraying and jealous. (Genesis 25, Genesis 21:9)
Donald Trump is likely to be an end-time surprise, but Muslims will be the big spanner in the works.
The Muslim Brotherhood has already declared the Trump victory a âdisaster.â Trump will in turn declare them a terrorist organisation!â
The 45th President of the US â Donald Trump:
âºThe biggest losers of the US election, without doubt were the mass-media â CNN in particular!
45 is written in Hebrew as âGavle.â The word means âredemption.â Other meanings include âpreservationâ and âprotection.â One of the numerics websites lists 45 as âworld ruler.â
The Trump / Cyrus connection:
Cyrus, facilitated the return of the stolen temple vessels back to Jerusalem and gave the decree to rebuild the temple.
Cyrus was chosen and used by God for His purposes in spite of the fact that Cyrus was no saint and was a Gentile ruler.
Interestingly, this section below on Cyrus the king of Persia was sent to me from a Persian, (Iranian) Jewish believer!
Cyrus was the Persian king in power when the Jewish captivity in Babylon ended. He was responsible for the destruction of the Babylonian Empire and the return of the Jews, carrying the sacred temple implements and vessels that had been plundered and stolen by the Babylonians, back to Jerusalem.
It was this theft of the sacred temple vessels that caused the âwriting on the wall.â
Cyrus was well known for his decree to allow the Jews to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.
The name Cyrus means âfar-sighted soul.
