ISRAEL – PART TWO

ISRAEL IN GOD’S COVENANTS.

Gen 15:17  “And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.    Gen 15:18  On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— ”   

Israel has not yet come into full possession of this covenant which God made with Abram.  This covenant will be fully realised during the millennial period, and even the honest Muslims admit that to be the case.       Palestinians say Israel occupies their lands, — but a Jordanian Muslim says the Koran teaches the land belong to Israel.  Sheikh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi – “God granted the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel and ordered them to settle there. In addition, it is predicted that before the end of days, God will bring the Children of Israel to retake possession of the Land, gathering them from the different countries and nations”  (Sura 17:104)    See article  http://www.quora.com/Does-the-Quran-say-that-the-land-of-Israel-is-for-the-Jews

Also from the same article, the following quote from Sheikh Ahmad Adwan  who introduces himself as a Muslim scholar who lives in Jordan, said on his personal Facebook page that “there is no such thing as “Palestine” in the Koran. Allah has assigned the Holy Land to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment” (Koran, Sura 5 – “The Sura of the Table”, Verse 21), and also  “We made the Children of Israel the inheritors (of the land)” (Koran, Sura 26 – “The Sura of the Poets”, Verse 59).   And there are many others who agree that  God’s promise to the Children of Israel has never been broken.    (Same article.)

Genesis 17:7-8  “I 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 will give 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.”   Gen 17:10  “This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you:  Every male child among you shall be circumcised.”    God’s part of the covenant  “I will give you and all of your descendants  all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession.”   Abram’s part of the covenant,   “Every male child among you shall be circumcised”.

This was an Everlasting Covenant which God made with Israel, and God cannot lie nor change His mind.  Num 23:19.   Add to this the fact that Israel did also honour their part of the covenant, even though it was God’s covenant, not Abram’s, and to this day every Israeli / Jewish male child is circumcised on the eighth day.

People who do not fully understand the power of “Covenant” in ancient times, believe it is just a contract that can be broken if or when it suits.  In ancient times however, to break a covenant was virtually a death sentence on the party breaking the covenant, as the covenant was sealed by the mingling of the blood of both parties.

Sadly, many Christians have been misled by their leaders, and taught that the Covenant has passed now to the Church, and the Holy land now belongs to the Church.    They say this happened when God created a “New Covenant”   For this reason, many Christians have become Jew haters, and side with the Palestinians in accusing Israel of being “Occupiers” of the land of Israel.

As seen above, even the honest Muslims believe the Holy land belongs to the Jews, and that the Jews will come back before the end of this age of grace from all four corners of the earth to retake their land.    This is being fulfilled today as Jews from all over the world are flocking back to Israel.

GOD’S NEW COVENANT.   The error that the false teaching of “Replacement Theology” makes, is in not fully understanding The New Covenant.    The New Covenant does not replace the old Covenant, but rather it is given to the “CHURCH”  which is made up of  BOTH — JEWS and Gentiles.   The Old Covenant was given to NATIONAL ISRAEL.    That Covenant is still in force today AS WE HAVE SEEN.    National Israel will still inherit the earth, (that is the unsaved Israelis and Jews at Jesus Second Coming to the EARTH, not into the clouds for His Bride) they will then turn to their Messiah and repent in sackcloth and ashes.  see Zech 12:10.

The CHURCH has been grafted into Spiritual Israel  (see Rom 11:17&18) and consists of ALL “TRUE” Christians  —  BOTH — JEWS and Gentiles who have been Born Again during the age of grace,  and the CHURCH shall become the BRIDE OF JESUS.    The CHURCH inherits HEAVEN with Jesus as Her Bridegroom.    National Israel inherits the The Promised Land, on the earth, and they along with all the other nations of the earth, will be ruled by Jesus and His Bride, the Church.   Rev_5:10   &  Rev_20:6. 

Psalm 2:1  Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?      Because Satan wants every Jew, Israeli and Christian on the face of the earth dead.  

As Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad speaking on Al-Hekma TV said in March 2012: “Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.  See   http://www.jewsnews.co.il/2017/12/13/oops-arab-historian-admits-there-is-no-palestinian-people.html            This was confirmed again by Mahmoud Abbas in the following article.      http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/196194#.VZx-YPlS7T9

Now on to more current events and News items, the following items will confirm that if the Lord does not come soon, there will be no one left to come back for.   Imagine a world in which people who hold a certain political ideology could be sought out and summarily executed with surgical precision using autonomous microdrones and with no collateral damage. While this may seem like a great way to eliminate terrorist organizations like ISIS or Al-Qaeda, it could also be used by them to wipe you out.      See    http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1806      You need to watch the video at the end of this article, as these “slaughterbots’  are being used today, and they are to be mass produced in the USA by the millions very soon if not stopped.

Iran’s Syria Bases Near Israel Have Apocalyptic Intent        If you don’t believe the Lord is coming soon for His Church, you need to read this article.    Iran being Shia Muslim, have always said that their “Mahdi” will not come back until there is a massive war against the infidels,  (Jews and Christians), at which time the “Mahdi will return with Jesus to fight the infidels and destroy them at Armageddon, which we know is still a few years away yet, but their intent can already be seen in this article below.    http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1802     Syria is already full of Iranian soldiers weapons, rockets etc. and since their war efforts in helping Iraq and Syria defeat ISIS, they now have a free road from Iran through Iraq and Syria all the way to Israel.     It is possible that they may try to take out Israel first,  (“First the little Satan, see Psalm 83, then the big Satan – America).    We will have to wait and see, however, the Church will be gone years before Armageddon.

Luk_17:28  “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;  v:29  But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” 
v:30  “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.    Lot’s day was known for its sexual debauchery, hence the fire and brimstone from heaven.”    Read the following.   http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-42260548     The World takes note as Australia also follows in the footsteps of Sodom and Gomorrah. 

The Lord’s return is very close, and I could fill a page of News Items nearly every day in which we see end time prophecies either being fulfilled, or lining up in preparation of being fulfilled.   In closing, remember the words of Jesus and the words of Paul.

Jesus said in Mat 24:44  “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”      Could be tomorrow or Christmas day,  no one knows, and no one will be expecting Him.   

And Paul tells us in   Heb 9:28b   He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are EAGERLY WAITING FOR HIM.

Are you TRULY READY if Jesus comes for His Bride TOMORROW?   Are you really  EAGERLY WAITING for Him?       God bless.       Lex

 

 

ISRAEL

ISRAEL  — GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.

The whole of the Bible is centred around ISRAEL.    It is HIStory, — God’s record of His chosen people, past, present and future.   The Bible is the history of the nation whom God called  “The apple of my eye”.   Zec 2:8 For this is what the LORD of the Heavenly Armies says:    “In pursuit of glory I was sent to the nations who plundered you, because “whoever injures you,  injures the pupil of my eye.”  (ISV).   

Nations of the world today should be very very careful of how they treat Israel, because world history shows that when a nation blesses Israel and treats them well, they in turn are very blessed and prosper exceedingly.    The latest nation to be blessed because of their stand for Israel was the USA, until they decided that they needed ARAB OIL more than they needed Israel.    To gain Arab Oil, meant they had to side with the Arab nations and the Palestinians against Israel, and call for the division of Israel, by giving back Judea, Samaria and the West Bank to the Palestinians.    This decision was a very bad choice, as from that time on America began its steady decline into debt and into the constant fear of terrorism, both of which were unheard of in America until then. 

The nation prior to the USA to bless Israel was the UK who brought forth the BALFOUR DECLARATION, which gave Israel back their own land again in 1917, and it was said later the sun never set on the British Empire, as wherever it was daytime the sun was over a British Colony somewhere in the world.    However, that ended when Britain refused entry to the Jewish people from EUROPE during World War Two, and sent thousands of Jews back to Germany, where they became victims of the holocaust, another very bad choice, and for that God removed His blessing from the UK, and it declined to the mediocre power it is today, lagging behind many other countries in the world.

God promised that this would happen right back at the very beginning in Genesis chapter 12  where he promised Abram, later to be called Abraham, Gen 12:2   “I’ll make a great nation of your descendants, I’ll bless you, and I’ll make your reputation great, so that you will be a blessing.”  Gen 12:3  “I’ll bless those who bless you, but I’ll curse the one who curses you, and through you all the people of the earth will be blessed.”  (ISV).     God, being the faithful God He is, has honoured that promise down through the ages, and is still honouring that promise today, despite Israel’s unfaithfulness to God for so much of the time.   

God’s word is truth, you cannot escape from it, God told Israel He would punish them if they turned away from Him and worshipped false god’s, and He has been faithful to His word  all the way through.    All who worship God are blessed, those who worship false gods are being, or will be, punished.

Bad choices, choices made against God and against His Word the Bible, always result in bad outcomes.    Let us look at some prophecies concerning the “last days” or the “end times”.   These prophecies are currently in progress.

Zech 1:18 & 19  Then I looked up and saw four horns.    I asked the angel who was talking to me, “What are those?” So he answered me, “Those are the forces that have dispersed Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”  (ISV)   (Horns in scripture nearly always refer to Empires, or World Powers.  See also Daniel 7:24  &  Rev 17:7    —-   The four horns spoken of here are the four known today as “The Quartet”  —  the United States, – the EU,  –  Russia and the United Nations.   These four powers or “four horns” are working together to create a “Peace Plan” which will divide God’s land, – ISRAEL, and give half of it to the Palestinians.     Let me say here that ALL the nations who work together and vote together with the four horns, to take God’s land away from Israel and give it to God’s enemies will be judged by God for doing that.   See  Joel 3: 1 & 2.

 Joel 3: 1 & 2  “Look, now! In those very days and at that time, when I restore prosperity to Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations, bringing them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will set out my case against them there,  (I will judge them) on behalf of my people, my heritage Israel, whom they scattered among the nations, apportioning my land among themselves.  (ISV).

ISRAEL’S ENEMIES.     I believe that Israel’s enemies, are of necessity also enemies of God, or God’s enemies, because of God’s covenants with Israel.    It is not my intention here to go through naming nations, as we are only dealing with God’s Land – Israel, and the surrounding nations which are mentioned in the Bible.    It is very interesting to note, but also logical, that Israel’s enemies today, are the very same enemies Israel battled in the Bible.     It is also very interesting to note that those enemies of yesteryear, have all become Islamic nations, and without exception, all swear to exterminate the Israelis from the face of the earth.     Also of note those same nations are also virulently anti Christian, and have vowed to cleanse the earth of all Christians as well as all “Jews”.  (Read Israelis).   

Jer 46:10 That day belongs to the LORD of the Heavenly Armies. It is a day of vengeance to take vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour and be satisfied, and will drink its fill of their blood. For the Lord GOD of the Heavenly Armies will hold a sacrifice in the land of the north, by the Euphrates river.  (ISV)   We were created in the likeness and image of God.   Are you capable of hate?  so is God.   Are you capable of jealousy?  so is God.   Are you capable of vengeance?  so is God.    The difference is that God’s hate, jealousy, vengeance etc.etc. are just and holy, whereas ours are driven by passion and often go beyond being just.    That is why the Lord tells us in Rom 12:19 Do not take revenge, dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. For it is written, “Vengeance belongs to me. I will pay them back, declares the Lord.” 

Eze 30:3 “For comes now the day—comes now the Day of the LORD, the day of clouds! The time of the gentiles is fulfilled!   Compare with      Rom_11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.   (ISV)    Ezekiel prophesies here that the Day of the Lord will come when the Gentiles is finished.

ISRAEL  —  GOD’S CLOCK.  

I think we need to understand these passages clearly so we have no misconceptions as to what the Lord is telling us here.   What the Lord is saying here is that when the day of the Lord comes, at that time the Gentiles domination of the world will cease.    The Day of the Lord is a time of Judgement upon the unsaved peoples of the world.    During this time, the Lord is trying desperately to bring sinners to salvation, knowing the end is near.   

The success of this time of judgement is seen in Rev 7:9 where we are told that “After these things ( i.e. After the first six seals of God’s wrath have been executed) I looked, and there was a crowd so large that no one was able to count it! They were from every nation, tribe, people, and language. They were standing in front of the throne and the lamb and were wearing white robes, with palm branches in their hands.”   In verse 14 we are told where this great crowd of people have come from, when the Elder tells John, “So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

These are the people who have seen that God is serious about cleansing the earth of sin and all manner of evil and wickedness, and they have been prepared to become martyrs in order to gain salvation and eternal life, by putting their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.    The rest of the world continue in their unbelief, in their evil and wicked ways, cursing God for what is happening, but not prepared to give up their evil and wicked practices.

I believe that the times of the Gentiles is perilously close to coming to an end, as more and more pressure is brought against God’s chosen people Israel to give up some of  God’s land to God’s enemies, and when they force Israel to accede to their peace plan, then God will say “Finish” and the times of the Gentiles will be over, and God’s judgement will commence.  

President Trump and his team of peacemakers are believed to be on the cusp of making an announcement right now.    It is believed that both sides will have to give up some of their demands, but that both sides will also gain previously unattainable concessions from the other side.    If this is correct, and a date is set for the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians and the Arabs etc. then look for 1Thess 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman; and they shall not escape. 

As the whole world cries out for peace and safety at any price, keep your eyes on Israel, Israel is God’s clock, and they will be the ones who have to pay the main price in this “peace at any price” deal with the Palestinians, and while watching Israel, don’t forget to keep your eyes on the Lord as HE brings to pass HIS word.

DON’T GIVE UP!

I want to take you back to my post titled “Rapture Thoughts” dated 12/09/2015, where I posited the following idea to think about.

Maybe Jesus does not set us free on the Feast of Trumpets as so many believe.   Maybe The Feasts were given to the Jews to observe, not to the Church, so maybe He is not bound to take the Church at the Feast of Trumpets, maybe He can take the Church at any moment of any day of any month of any year He wishes.  

This would fit with the Church knowing the season of His coming, but not the date.   We know it will be soon, just not HOW soon.   Jesus could then fulfil the final three feasts for the Jews at His Second Coming.   In conclusion, we need to make sure we are ready watching waiting and looking and longing for His arrival to take us home to heaven at any moment of every day.

As you would all know, I have always said I believe that the Lord can Rapture His Church at any moment of any day, I still believe that, but I confess that the hype of the signs in the sky and all the talk about the Feast of Trumpets caused me to take my eye of the ball, or should I say off the “WORD” of God until the days proved or disproved in this case the theories put forward.  

I would like to examine more closely some scriptures which I believe give credence to my original posting in September 2015, but before I start, let me make another statement which may shock the pundits, and please understand that I am in NO WAY saying they are definitely wrong, OR right, but I believe the following thoughts bear thinking about.

1.    THE FEASTS AND THE LAW WERE GIVEN TO NATIONAL ISRAEL, NOT TO THE CHURCH. We are still in the times of the Gentiles UNTIL the Church is Raptured, at that moment, God will again take up the Jews and Israelis whom he has set aside “For a Time” see Romans chapter 11. 

An interesting thought here is that God may also be working according to the Gentile Calendar during this time of Grace.    

This would have two implications.  a.  The Year of Jubilee would continue on from today until the 31 December 2017.    OR  b.  The Rapture itself, WHENEVER that occurs, would thereby determine The “CHURCHES’ ”  Year of Jubilee.   AND  – “ISRAEL’S “Year of Jubilee will take place at the Second Coming.    

I also believe that as the first four High Holy Feasts of Israel were fulfilled by Jesus on the very day and hour, and in one short period of time, Springtime,  so also, Jesus will fulfil the three remaining High Holy Feasts of Israel on the very day and hour, and again, all in one short period of time, Autumn all in the one month, at THE SECOND COMING!

2.    THE CHURCH IS NOT BOUND BY LAWS, OR HOLY FEAST DAYS WHICH WERE GIVEN TO NATIONAL ISRAEL.

Col 2:16  So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths.  (Feast of Trumpets is a new moon ceremony)    Paul is saying as Christians we are no longer bound by the “LAW” because Jesus has fulfilled the law on our behalf, we see this in Col 2:14  He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.     The Holy Days and the food restrictions of the Law given to Israel do not apply to Christians. 

Most Christian Jews still observe these Holy Days etc, as did the early Church, but they are NOT BOUND by them, as they are no longer under LAW.    To be bound by them again, would be to place themselves back under LAW, not GRACE.

After the Rapture, Israel will willfully revert back to the period of LAW again, not understanding that their “SIN” offerings are TOTALLY FUTILE, as Jesus has fulfilled the sin offering for everybody, FOREVER.

So we see from scripture, that Christians are no longer bound by Holy Days, or food restrictions or Sabbaths, as we see some churches still observe, all we are bound to, is the command to do the will of the Father.

3.   THE SHORTENING OF THE DAYS. 

A few more things to chew on, Jesus stated in Mat 24:22  “unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”    This shortening of the days, taken in its context, is very clearly during the “Great Tribulation”, and it brings up an interesting thought, will Israel know the exact year of the return of their Messiah if the days of the Great Tribulation are shortened?  

This would make the MANY warnings of Jesus for people to “Watch and Wait” lest they be caught out unawares applicable to BOTH the Church and to National Israel and it makes sense that that would be the case. 

Jesus told many parables of the Bridegroom ( i.e. the Church) being delayed, and of the Master of the house returning unexpectedly from a far country, of good servants found doing the masters will, and of bad servants beating their fellow servants, (being Israel), indicating to both the Church and National Israel that we ALL need to be on our toes every day,  Mat 24:44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

I have long thought that IF the Lord’s return was to be at the “Feast of Trumpets” that millions of people would be thinking, this could be the time, all expecting His return, but that definitely conflicts with the words of Jesus Himself who said as we see above, it will happen when NOBODY thinks it is likely to happen.   Maybe tomorrow, or the end of the month, or the end of December; maybe somewhere in the middle or sometime next year, NOBODY KNOWS but we must be ready whenever it happens.

Regardless of whether the Lord is working to the Gentile Calendar or the Hebrew Calendar, we do have one thing that we know, WE are NOT Children of Darkness  1Thess 5:4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.     WE DO KNOW that it is very close.

In closing let us remind ourselves of the Word of God  Isa 55:8  “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.  v:9  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

This makes it all the more important to watch all the time and be ready at all times, because, we may think we know, but WE DON’T, – GOD DOES. 

Although all the signs of Israel’s Birth and Jubilee etc. fall exactly 20 years,  30 years or 50 years apart on our Calendar, they do NOT all fall exactly 20 years,  30 years or 50 years apart on the Hebrew Calendar!!!  

Finally, think about this, IF the Lord is using the Gentile Calendar during the “Time of the Gentiles”,  and IF the RAPTURE were to occur sometime this year, then 1. it would still be in the YEAR of Jubilee, and  2.  It would still allow the Lord to fulfill the remaining Feasts of the Lord on the EXACT DAYS,  BUT in under seven years, because of  “those days being shortened.”

Jesus can come on any day at any time.   Mat 24:44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.    God Bless.

THE SIGNS ARE ALL AROUND US.

July 2017 you cannot look left, you cannot look right, you cannot look in front, and you cannot look behind, without seeing dozens of end times signs and prophecies being fulfilled right in front of your eyes each day.

Jesus said the last days would be marked by distress of nations.  Luke 21:25.      Today nations all over the world are in turmoil, most of the nations around the world are either in financial turmoil, political turmoil, civil war, or religious uprisings.    The USA leads the charge, with the political insanity of the left versus the right, and daily calls and threats to kill President Trump and his leaders.    Civil war is being fomented in the USA by the Global Elitists, powerful and rich billionaires like George Soros, and other people in high places.

Russia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, Qatar, UAE and almost all of the northern African nations like Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Congo, Ethiopia, Eritrea, etc., are at war with various Islamist terrorist groups.   The Philippines are at war in Marawe against Islamic State offshoots who want to start an Islamic Caliphate in South East Asia.   Secular Indonesia is also having major problems with radical Islamist terrorist groups as they battle extremist ISIS Training Centres in many of their mosques.

The South African leader has threatened that he intends to take South Africa down the same path taken by Mugabe in Rhodesia which led to starvation, destruction and death.

Take all property from the white landowners and distribute it to the original owners of the land who are incapable of farming it, or of developing it in any way as they have no finance, and no financial backing.    This is bringing division and chaos in South Africa at present.  See -:   telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/03/jacob-zuma-calls-confiscation-white-land-without-compensation

Every nation belonging to the European Union is struggling with the millions of Moslem refugees flooding in from the Middle East and North Africa.   Because their religion is different, their cultures are different, and their expectations are IMPOSSIBLE to meet, the end result is causing havoc throughout Europe, and nations like England, seeing the inevitability of what lies ahead, are trying to get out of the EU.

Venezuela, Brazil, Columbia, Mexico and the list goes on and on and continues to spread every day.     Respect and decency have gone out the window in many countries, and is already spreading to Australia, where one punch attacks on innocent victims, and home invasions on elderly people are increasing all the time.    Road rage is also becoming  a major problem in western society.

Nations are provoking nations, and there are endless rumours of wars about to begin at any moment filling our news casts.

Over the past year or two, we have seen and heard about “Once in a lifetime”  or  “Once in a century” Even “The worst ever recorded” events, such as earthquakes, violent storms, volcanoes, mud slides, wild fires, droughts, tsunamis, cyclones, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods etc.    These events are occurring daily all over the world.    It seems that nature itself is out of control.    But Jesus Himself warned us that this would be the case immediately before His return for His Church.

Parasites, viruses, bacteria, flesh eating bugs and plagues thought to have been eradicated are making a come back from the past, and they are now even more deadly than the original versions, as these new breeds are impervious to the drugs that used to be so efficient in controlling them, and wiping them out, today they are immune to all drugs available, and “Super Super Bugs” are now emerging and spreading rapidly around the world.    At the same time, new deadly flu strains, diseases, viruses etc. are also emerging.

Technology today is producing more and more terrible weapons of warfare and weapons of mass destruction than ever before, and the very technology that should be benefitting mankind, is more often than not, also being used to destroy mankind.    Technological advances today are so advanced, that scientists really do believe they are more advanced than God, as they manipulate genes and chromosomes and DNA and RNA to try to create “Human Warriors” with superman like powers of strength, stamina and speed, even going so far as to link the human brain to computers, so humans can think and react with the speed of a supercomputer.

Deception is out of control worldwide in every sphere of life, whether it be government, science, big business, education, etc., and according to Catholic and Pentecostal church leaders, demon possession is growing at a phenomenal rate.    In the USA witches have called for help from other countries where witches are found, to help them cast their spells of hate and destruction on President Trump, in order to try and kill or get rid of him and the Republican Party.

The One World Government is operational today. 

End of the age prophecies in Daniel and Revelation speak of a One World Government, which will be taken over by the Antichrist.     This One World Government has now been in operation for 70 years, it is called  “The United Nations”.   Already it has passed Laws and Decrees (Agendas) that bind the nations to its will, and most nations have signed allegiance to these Agendas, believing they are good for the world in general.   As time has gone on, more and more laws and Decrees have been added to their Agendas, reducing the power of National Governments to create their own laws, and gradually increasing the powers of the United Nations.

If you want to know more about these Laws and Rules and Agendas etc see   http://www.onenation.com.au/policies/agenda21     which Paul Keating signed up to.

Agenda 21 has now morphed into Agenda 30 for Sustainable Development, adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development.  Read more at -:   UN Agenda 2030: A Recipe for Global Socialism.      https://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/22267-un-agenda-2030-a-recipe-for-global-socialism             These agendas can be searched online, but once signed up to by a Nation, they become very difficult to get out of, which is why President Trump refused to sign up to The Reduction of CO2 gas emissions goal, as it has NEVER BEEN PROVED THAT MANKIND is responsible for the world heating up.

Scientific data HAS been deliberately manipulated, including by  Australia,   see -:    http://dailycaller.com/2017/07/31/australia-weather-bureau-caught-tampering-with-climate-numbers/    and it has been    altered and twisted by those who have an axe to grind, thus muddying the waters so nothing can be believed in this regard, and the battle is ongoing.    The proponents of this agenda say that catching out Gov’t agencies manipulating scientific data, does not prove that all the other scientist are wrong, BUT, where do most scientists get their information and data from?    You guessed it.

Do you need more proof that the One World Government is alive and well, and is already in operation today? Well here is some more proof.

Pope Francis: WORLD GOVERNMENT  Must Rule U.S. ‘For Their Own Good’    Read full article at-:

http://yournewswire.com/pope-francis-world-government-rule/      The Pope is not ignorant of the One World Government, as he is part of it.

Revelation also foretells that at the end of the age, there will be a One World Religion, and this One World Religion will enforce the worship of  the “Antichrist”  also called the “Beast”,  or they shall be killed.

The One World Religion is also operational today. 

Pope Francis stated “because Muslims, Hindus and African Animists are also made in the very likeness and image of God, to hate them is to hate God! To reject them to is to reject God and the Gospel of Christ. Whether we worship at a church, a synagogue, a mosque or a mandir, it does not matter. Whether we call God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all worship the same God of love.    We are all children of God.                  Read article at -:

BOTH,  ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT  – AND – ONE WORLD RELIGION ARE IN FULL SWING TODAY.   —  BOTH ARE END OF THE AGE SIGNS   —

One World Gov’t, –  See  REV 13:4-8   AND   One World Religion   See   REV 13:11-17

Do you find all this depressing?    DON’T  this is great news -:  Jesus said when you see all these thing happening, LOOK UP, His hand is on the door knob of heaven ready to throw it open and call all the “True Christians” out of all this, and it is all about to end very, very soon for all True Christians all around the world.

In Genesis 1:14  God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and LET THEM BE FOR SIGNS and seasons, and for days and years;       God says He will use the heavens to give warning signs to mankind.

Jesus also gave warning signs of the end of the age in Luke 21:11  And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences;      Think there were no earthquakes, floods, storms etc before Jesus time on earth, read the Old Testament, like ZECH 14:5 or DANIEL 11:22  or  AMOS 1:1 ACTS 16:26   PSALM 90:5   NUMBERS 21:28 or hundreds of other references in the Old Testament that speak of earthquakes, fires, floods and storms.    What Jesus was saying is these massive events shall be daily occurrences all over the world, and that is what we are seeing today.

Luke 21:11 continued.   And there will be fearful sights AND GREAT SIGNS FROM HEAVEN.

Great Solar Eclipse of USA AUGUST 21 2017.    The same sign given to Nineveh before Jonah arrived caused the whole city to repent, and God withheld judgement.     Will the same thing happen again in the USA, and will The USA repent, or continue in sin bringing division and destruction to the USA.  The following clip is from NASA showing the path of the eclipse.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C0SeDenPRo

Rev 12:1  Now A GREAT SIGN APPEARED IN HEAVEN: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.    See   http://watchfortheday.org/videos.html

War is on the near horizon for Israel, this is prophesied in the end time prophecies of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, and while some prophetic students see Israel’s 1948 / 49 War of Independence as being Psalm 83, others disagree, however the Gog and Magog Ezekiel Prophecy has definitely not yet been fulfilled, but we can see day by day that this prophecy is miraculously being prepared for before our very eyes.

Russia, and Persia (IRAN) bitter enemies three or four years ago, signed a Defence Treaty Pact just a year or so ago.    Turkey, a friend of Israel just three or four years ago, today undeclared enemies, and easily seen as such by Turkeys actions toward its ex ally and friend.  Syria, Lebanon, Libya, today all Moslem and all bitter enemies of Israel, and the many peoples with you, include ISIS which has thousands of Moslems from countries such as Pakistan, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia etc. and then there are all the Arab nations, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait etc. who are also in Syria fighting against ISIS who will join together as Islamist countries against Israel to try to destroy Israel.

It is believed that this prophecy will be fulfilled either immediately before the rapture of the church, or immediately after the Rapture of the church.   Israel will face enemies from within, as seen in the article below, as well as enemies from other countries.  http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1438

This could take place within days or weeks, we need to be ready all the time regardless of when it happens.    The rapture of the True Christians, will be sudden, unexpected, lightning fast, and sadly for the millions of half pie, half believers, irreversible.    I believe those raptured will represent only a very small percentage of the Church at large, as was foretold by Jesus in His parables, and again by John in the letter to the Church of Laodicea In Revelation 3:14 ff.    Vast numbers of unprepared, unbelieving, Nominal (= in name only) worldly Christians will be left behind.     Among the millions left behind will certainly be Popes, Pastors, Archbishops, and Bishops, Monsignors and Elders, Evangelists, Prophets and Teachers, who have all been trying to build their own kingdom, instead of God’s kingdom. See Mat 7:21  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. v:22  Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  v:23  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

From every denomination, from every nation, there will be leaders who  are deceiving gullible Christians with their worldly wise, “politically correct” or just straight out unbelieving teachings.

YES, I know I could be wrong, but I believe that God’s diary / calendar for the age of grace is about to end, and the times of the Gentiles is closing fast.    I truly doubt that this world can keep going for another year at this pace without destroying itself.

As I have already said the signs are all here now, and while signs don’t set dates they do set warning bells ringing for those who are watching and waiting and longing for the return of our Saviour.

Jesus said OCCUPY TILL I COME  –  but don’t forget he also said “Therefore IF YOU WILL NOT WATCH, I will come upon you as a thief, and YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHAT HOUR I WILL COME UPON YOU.

Let us be found doing BOTH, FAITHFULLY,  when He returns.

God Bless
