For My European Readers; A Psalm for The Sabbath, and a deep Truth….Happy Sunday

Psalm 92

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:

The mark of the Christian, is that He praises God! The dead praise not the Lord we are told, but those infused with the gift of Life are alive and can respond to Him.

2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

Morning and evening,The mercy of God and his covenant faithfulness is lauded by those of the Redeemed. The lost don’t understand this, and think we are silly for always having the song of redemption in our hearts.

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.4 For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.5 O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

The highest thoughts that the mind is capable of, are those set upon the nature of God and His mighty works. Creation and Redemption, the old song and the new song, are the two great works by which He has made the redeemed glad.

6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

We introduce here the Wisdom portion of this blessed Psalm, the deep truth hidden from the .brutish. of this world, that is, those unspiritual and incapable of seeing spiritually…

7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:8 But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.9 For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

The truth is that wicked men multiply and expand at rates equivalent to the grass. One day the lawn is brown, and the next day it is overgrown, lush but untidy. One day in the near past, we never saw many Muslims in the West, nor were homosexuals flaunting themselves so openly. But in a short time, they seem to have sprouted everywhere.

Burkhas are now seen on every street corner, dark, glaring, swarthy men, menacing youths, transgender this , that and the other things, and they are everywhere! It can almost become fearfully disturbing, unless you get the first half of this dark saying, revealed in this Blessed Psalm.

The wicked flourish like the grass, but just as soon they will be cut down, and burned.

Psalm 35 echoes this Wisdom,

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb…35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

The idea is to not allow such a flourishing of evil to take away your Sabbath rest, In Jesus we have Shalom.(John 16:33)

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

My Horn? Who is speaking here? The Messiah is speaking, of his power, and comforting all who take their refuge in His anointing.

12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

Thus the second part of the Wisdom saying; If the Wicked are like grass, soon to be cut down and consumed, the Righteous are like Palm trees. It takes a long time for a Palm tree to grow fruitful, but once to does, the fruitfulness lasts for decades!

15 To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

God knows what He is doing. We can see the evil and folly of our ‘leaders’ in the West who have brought these calamities upon us, but behind those factors is a Sovereign and upright God. God can use the invaders, to bring our prodigal nations back to simple faith in Jesus, then God will deal with them.

Listen to this Hymn!

The United Nations is an End Times Player…Armeggedon pt 3

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. (Joel 3:1-3)

This past week has been incredibly compelling from a biblical Prophecy perspective. So much that has happened in the wake of the 70th anniversary celebration of the United Nations.  All of the worlds prophetic heavy hitters were in attendance, and treated to the spectacle of the Pope of the Catholic Church, who opened his remarks to the assembly of the entire world, saying “I come in my own name…”.

See what Jesus, the true earthly representative of God said about such an introduction, in John 5 :43.”I come in the Father’s name and you receive me not. Another shall come in His own name, Him, you shall receive”. Predictably the false prophet didn’t mention Jesus, repentance or Salvation in anything he said to the congress of every nation on earth.

At the same General Assembly, we were then witness to Vladimir Putin’s compelling warning to the  “First World” nations, that their arrogant meddling in other nations can only create mayhem and war. I have to admit, Putin even touched my heart when he mournfully demanded of  Obama and the West to consider the wreckage and misery they have promoted in their “Arab Spring”,

“Do you realize what you have done?”.

Who knew that within a day. Putin himself would muscle into the Syrian crisis, bombing ISIS and Nato trained rebel armies , in defense of Bashir Assad?

Another speaker in line was the President of the Palestinian State Mahmoud Abbas, the planner of the 1972 slaughter of the Israeli Olympic team in Munich. This terrorist demanded full recognition of the Palestinian state, and raised the Palestinian flag at the U.N. to full applause.

Abbas, no doubt had been encouraged by the overtures of the Pope, who recognized the Palestinian State, ceded to them by partitioning the Land God granted forever to the children of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob. Earlier in the week, Abbas had incited violence against Jewish worshippers in Jerusalem, saying “We welcome every drop of blood shed in Jerusalem…”. The current Pope has awarded  Abbas with the “Angel of Peace award.

Another significant speech was given to the General Assembly, but many walked out in disgust before the speaker could commence. I refer to the speech of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime minister of Israel. The speech was a passionate condemnation of the world’s tacit support of the Iranian regime’s quest for Nuclear Weapons, and an assurance that Israel would stand alone if it has to.

Ladies and gentlemen, Israel will never acquiesce to nuclear arms in the hands of a rogue regime that repeatedly promises to wipe us off the map. Against such a threat, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself.
I want there to be no confusion on this point. Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone. Yet, in standing alone, Israel will know that we will be defending many, many others. Netanyahu Address General Assembly

Truly from a prophetic standpoint, the events of the U.N.’s seventieth general assembly were of great import. The UN is an important player in the end times scenario. The Prophets saw the U.N. and placed them in the drama that is the last days Geo-Political situation.

The vision of Joel 3 is just one example of the prominence that the U.N. will play.

First of all note that this prophecy is given a time reference. “…in the time when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem…”. Judah and Jerusalem were vacated by the nation of Israel in 70 AD as a judgment of God. The Jews were scattered from one end of the earth to the other, as Moses said they would be, to endure a long night of exile and suffering.

In May of 1948 an unprecedented event occurred. A nation that had been taken out of existence was re constituted in one day!  The nation of Israel was born again, and the “captivity of Judah and Jerusalem have been streaming back into the Holy Land ever since.

Secondly note the divine prediction, “ I will also gather all nations…”. The literal possibility for this aspect of the prophecy is only recent, for at no other time in human history has there been even a possibility for the “gathering of all nations” since the Tower of Babylon judgment.

All nations have indeed been assembled into a congress, the United nations which arose, like Israel, out of the aftermath of World War 2 in the late 1940’s. As Psalm 2 predicts,

“the kings of the earth and their rulers take counsel together against the LORD and His Christ”.

What you are seeing in the U.N. general Assemblies, is the gathering of “the Kings of the earth and their rulers”, as designated many places in the Bible.

Thirdly, concerns the  Valley of Jehoshaphat– “… and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat… “. The point is not that there is or isn’t an actual geographical valley of Jehoshaphat, the point is that the name Jehoshaphat is part of the prophesy. It means “Jahweh shall Judge”, ie God shall judge the nations of the earth.

It could also be a reminder of the story of the seige of Juda in the days of King Jehoshaphat, in which after repentance and a national day of prayer and fasting, the instruction was given not to fear the combined gentile armies of Ammonites, Moabites and Edomites.

This is the battle where Judah, at God’s command, marched the Priests out front of the army, with instruments instead of weapons, and Praising the goodness of the Lord ! the enemy turned upon itself and was routed.

Fourthly, God is going to Sue all of the nations in His Divine Court…

…and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel…” This is not a prediction that God will ask the nations to go easy on Israel. This is legal language, God is going to slap a lawsuit upon the Nations, he is serving an indictment, for this is the court of Divine justice!

The indictment has four counts, 1) they scattered God’s people, 2) they parted God’s land, 3)they cast lots for God’s people, 4) they sold out the children of Israel, for the hire of a harlot, and for wine.

* The first indictment is what they did to  “My people, whom they have scattered among the nations”-

The Nations of the world indeed scattered the children of Israel, thoroughly across the world, it is not unusual even to this day to find a tribe in remote China, India, or even black Africa, who keep kosher, and observe other practices of the Jews, though cut off for centuries from the rest of the world.

But one could argue that this was exactly what God told Israel would happen, should they prove faithless.

And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.(Leviticus 26:33)

So why is there an indictment on the nations of the world for doing exactly what God said they would do? We have to turn to Zechariah for the answer ,

And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.(Zechariah 1:15)

God is bringing suit against the nations because though He used them to scatter the children of Israel, and to afflict them, they have taken it further than He wanted.

The nations were “at ease” when holocausts and pogroms were occurring, it didn’t bother them. Hitler was offering shiploads of German Jews to any nation that would shelter them, but there were no takers.He then knew that his ‘final solution’ was possible to undertake without international interference.

All through the 1940’s into the 1990’s the word of the nations to Israel, in the midst of intifada and terror campaigns was “don’t rock the boat” and inflame the Arabs, give them “land for peace”so that oil prices would be stable.

The nations could overlook the Palestinian bombing and murder campaigns, the slaughter of children, women, Olympic athletes, etc., for they themselves were ‘at ease’. This is what is bringing upon the world the final judgment.

The Second Indictment- “They Parted My Land….” The Land that Abbas is demanding be recognized as a new sovereign State, called Palestine, does not belong to Him, or to the United States, Britain or the Papacy. Nor does it belong to the U.N. . The Land belongs to God to dispose of as He sees fit. God has chosen to give it to the seed of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob.Not even the Jews can dispose of it.

The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me. (Leviticus 25:23)

Therefore for the nations of the world to deliberate at the UN, or in Rome or Washington or Cairo as to the disposal of the Holy Land and it’s borders, as if it were their’s to dispose of is arrogant presumption. This is called the “Controversy of Zion” and it will bring the world to the final judgment.

The third count is that the nations of the world have “cast lots” for God’s people. As we said earlier, now is the only time in history where this strange charge can even possibly be made.

Where do the Nations of the world meet together to “Cast Lots” for God’s people? There is indeed a congress of nations which casts lots regularly for God’s people, (among a few other things). I speak of the UN.

Interestingly, The UN is composed of 192 member states, 57 of which are Islamic, and virtually vote as a bloc. The member states are divided into several regional groupings of which turns are taken to serve on the UN security council.

Israel is the only state in the UN which is not put in a regional grouping, and thus which cannot serve on the UN human rights council! Libya has served on it!

Neither can Israel ever serve on the UN security council. In 2002 Syria was put on the US state dept list of terrorist states, yet in that same year Syria served on the security council.

The statistics are stunning, for example as of 2002,

* The Security Council had passed 175 total resolutions. 74 of these were neutral to Israel, 97 were against Israel, 4 went against perceived Arab interests.

*The U.N. General Assembly voted 7,938 times for Israel, but 55,642 times against her interests!

*The U.N. Security council(which Israel is barred from sitting on),has either “condemned”,”censured”, “deplored”, or “strongly deplored” Israel 49 times!

*The Security council has passed 131 resolutions, of which 43 were neutral. But 88 of them criticised or opposed Israel, and never an Arab state ,Arab body, nor even the PLO,which is the “father” of modern terrorism!

* The U.N. general assembly has passed 429 resolutions against Israel, and 56 against any Arab states. They have either “condemned”,”vigorously condemned”,”strongly condemned”,”deplored”,”strongly deplored”,”censured” or “denounced” Israel 321 times, and never the Arabs!

There is something dreadfully wrong here, this is more than bias and prejudice, it is satanic and will bring the world into Judgment!

Quoting best-selling author and Bible scholar Dave Hunt ,

“More than 60,000 Individual votes have been cast in the U.N. condemning Israel. Yet not once has the U.N. reprimanded those who have without provocation waged four wars of aggression against Israel with the declared intention of annihilating her. Nor have the terrorists been condemned by the U.N. In November 2003, Israel introduced its first request for a resolution since 1976, asking for a prohibition against Arab terrorists who deliberately target Israeli women and children. Its request was rejected and instead, the U.N. adopted a resolution demanding protection of Palestinian children from Israeli aggression. The U.N.’s adamant opposition to Israel and everything it does is in defiance of the God of Israel and His pledge to restore His people to their promised land.”(Dave Hunt, ‘The Battle For Jerusalem, Chapter 6 of ‘The Gathering Storm’, Mal Couch Gen Ed, 21st Century Press, Springfield, MO, 2005, p. 129]:)

U Think the discerning can see that the whole world is heading into a conflict, but not merely with each other, but with God…

Russia Is A Player in Prophecy But Not The USA -.. Armeggedon pt 2 chaos

To all who have any discernment,we are currently witnessing the diminishment of the 70 year  US sphere of influence in the Middle East.

I cringed as I witnessed the spectacle of Vladimir Putin’s U.N.  speech excoriating the western nations for ignoring international law, dis-embowling Libya, Syria  and creating ISIS through our meddling in the Middle East.

Putin is a supporter of embattled Syrian President Bashir Assad. He has committed Russian ground troops, tanks, ships and an air strike force to defend Assad. Putin is also an ally of the terrorist Iranian regime. They too have poured troops into Syria to defend Assad and are currently fighting to defend the beleaguered Assad regime.

It is obvious that Putin is exploiting the Sunni/Shiite rift in Islam, taking the side of the Shiites, and developing a Shiite alliance, armed and trained by Russia. The goal is a Shiite crescent from Syria all the way to the Caucasus

On the other hand, Obama and the West have long been supporters of the Sunni, which are 80 percent of the Muslim world. The Saudi’s have virtually bribed, blackmailed or out right purchased the leadership of the Western world, including America. At their bidding the US has spilled much blood and spent much treasure to try to ensure an order in the Middle East to keep the oil flowing.

Sunnis and Shiites hate each other even more than they hate and fear anyone else.

The center point of the Obama foreign policy has been the so-called “Arab Spring”. Coming out of his “post colonial ” worldview,(i.e. that the West has gained at the expense of the third world, and that therefore Western gains must be reversed), Obama has undermined the former secular, pragmatic , and admittedly harsh governments of the post WW2 Middle East.

I wouldn’t want to live under a Mubarak(Egypt) or a Qadhafi(Libya) or even under a Saddam Hussein(Iraq). They were tyrants indeed, but they had to be harsh to hold back even more savage forces, which they knew well, in their own lands. None of the above had an official policy to persecute Christians. But the ones who are currently filling the void left by these undermined leaders do indeed practice genocide against Christians!

Bashir Assad is one of those “old order ” leaders. He does indeed have blood on his hands, and is the current subject of the bloody “Arab Spring”  uprising. Obama wants him out of power, and the West has funded, trained and financed several Sunni armies to oust him.

One of the more vicious of these US funded groups, turned their attention from ousting Assad to carving out for themselves an area between parts of the embattled Syria and the hastily abandoned Iraq, to deform ISIS. (The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria).They are unleashing a reign of terror throughout the world that hasn’t been seen since the Nazis or Stalin.

Under much pressure from world opinion,the Obama administration has waged a very limited, feckless, and pinprick war to “degrade” ISIS’s capacity.

Vladimir Putin surprised the whole world, on the day after his UN speech, by unleashing fierce airstrikes against ISIS Targets, warning US aircraft to “Stay out-of-the-way”. One Syrian foreign minister said two days of Putin’s airstrikes have accomplished more than a year of the US effort to “degrade” ISIS.

These bold actions by Putin would have been inconceivable even in the days of the George W Bush administration. He senses the weak, ineffective resolve of the World’s former superpower, and is saying “Get out of our way, you have had your chance, let us show you how this terrorism is dealt with“.

Putin’s air force will not be hampered by the suicidal rules of engagement American forces have been tethered to.

But Putin isn’t just trying to take out ISIS, (the vicious Frankenstein we created and armed). Putin is out to defend Assad, therefore he is also taking out CIA backed rebel bases. In any other time this would be regarded as an act of war by an enemy.

The coalition Putin is assembling and arming is similar to the end times coalition spoken of by Ezekiel the Prophet that will come against Israel in the last days. It includes Turkey, (Meshech and Tubal,Gomer, Togarmah ), Iran(Persia) Somalia and Sudan(Ethiopia) Libya and parts of North Africa.

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,  And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:  And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:  Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.(Ezekiel 38:1-7)

The individual addressed, Gog, has assembled a confederacy  to come down into the Land of Israel to take a spoil. When God says “Be thou Prepared and prepare for thyself…” it is literally “Be thou an Armorer unto them and to thyself”.

America is not mentioned as a factor in the last days prophecies. We could currently be seeing her demise in influence. Two anecdotes illustrate this;

This is from a transcript of the Rush Limbaugh Show; White House Has Priorities in Order

“RUSH: What do we get from the White House? “The White House is reaching out to the transgender community for a list of things that its members want as they follow their lifestyle choices.”

Well, it’s obvious here, ladies and gentlemen, this White House has their priorities in order. “The initiative was launched with the help of White House Chief Data Scientist DJ Patil, who expressed concern that there is very little data of what the transgender community needs from the government.” Why does the transgender community need anything from the government? I mean, why does anybody need — I mean, like this, places to pee?”

In a profoundly moving speech Benjamin Netanyahu confronted the UN on it’s silence in the face of Iranian promises to destroy Israel. But the US delegation distinguished itself by refusing to applaud. Samantha Powers walked out of the speech.

What is the reason for America’s astonishing blessings anyway? I would say it is the blessing of God.

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.(Genesis 12:3)

How will we fare without it?

Russia Muscles in…Syria In Prophecy…Armeggedon pt 1

Vladimir Putin has received authorization to use Russian military power in defense of besieged Syrian President Bashir Assad. He has wasted no time, having launched a series of airstrikes against the terror group ISIS, but there are ominous reports that Putin has also attacked US backed rebel army elements as well.

The situation is very confusing, but I think it would profit to try to make some sense of it, since it has extremely serious Geopolitical implications and most importantly it is of immense prophetic significance as well.

How did the world arrive at this mess?

The Syrian Civil War is a direct consequence of the centerpiece of Obama foreign policy, “The Arab Spring”. Essentially the Obama doctrine has been one of postcolonial re-arrangement of the Middle Eastern order. Secular, pragmatic leadership was installed over the Middle East after World War 1 by the victorious allies,Britain and France.

Leaders such as Mubarek of Egypt, The Hussein’s of Jordan, Qaddafi of Libya, the Sauds, and even people such as Saddam Hussein in Iraq were extremely ruthless in their rule, but they knew what savage forces they had to restrain to maintain order in their respective lands.In short, they harshly subdued any form of Salafist Islam that emerged, knowing that to allow such any freedom would result in mayhem and destruction in their own lands.

Obama’s doctrine, which began in 2009 in his speech to the entire Muslim World, from Al Azhar University in Egypt, (the Harvard, Yale and Cambridge of Sunni Terrorism and rebellion), was to empower the banned Islamist groups, bringing them to the tables of power, and allowing them to run in elections for power and control over the Middle East.

One of the Obama administration prerequisites for coming to Al Azhar, was that Egypt would have to legitimize the banned Muslim Brotherhood. Shortly after, there was an election in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate was elected, and the reign of terror, murder and mayhem was so intense, the Egyptian army had to take control again of the nation.

The “Arab Spring” has gone from Arab country to country, unseating secular, pragmatic leaders,and installing radical Islamists wherever possible, and wherever this has been resisted in the Middle East, there has been hell to pay for everyone involved. Perhaps hardest hit have been the Christians of the Arab world, who are currently being slaughtered genocidally as a result of American policy.

Syria is the nation currently holding off baying bands of Islamists. The nation of 22 million, has lost half of its population, mostly as refugees, but more than 250 thousand Syrians have been killed in this three-year civil war.$ Million Syrians have been housed in tent cities in Turkey, 2 million in Lebanon, millions more have been displaced and wander about Syria and Iraq. Millions more are trying to find asylum in Europe.

The ruling Assad family were from a minority sect in Islam, the Alawites, an offshoot of Shia Islam. Hafez Assad and his successor Son Bashir have ruled Syria through a very brutal police state system. The rebels which have been attacking Syria are western backed, Sunni armies, equipped with western weapons and tactics.

After Obama’s sudden and feckless withdrawal of US power from Iraq, One of those US backed rebel factions turned from seeking to oust Assad, to seizing an area the size of Indiana between Iraq and Syria, and declaring the resurrected “Caliphate” of the Islamic State.That faction is called ISIS or ISIL.

ISIS seized the Iraqi city of Mosul(Ninevah), an  oil rich banking center which housed a considerable amount of Iraqi gold reserves. This allowed the terror group to become , not only the rickets terror group in the world, but one of the rickets organizations of any kind, in the world!

When ISIS was attacking Assad, we (The US) loved them, fed them and equipped them.We looked the other way when they committed hellish atrocities, we allowed them to persecute Christians, and we wouldn’t even arm one of our most pro-American factions in the region, the Kurds, in their life and death struggle with ISIS.

Syrian president Bashir Assad has friends also. The Iranians are on his side. They are Shiite, as is Hezbullah, the Syrian Lebanese military force. Russia also has long supplied weapons and now Russian ground troops and Air Force have come into the conflict.

The Obama Administration has long been giving lip service to the “Degradation” of ISIS, but has taken only tepid actions. US airmen complained that on sorties against them, they have spotted valuable targets only to be restrained by command from taking them out.

Enter Putins Russia, portraying itself as the defender of Syrian Christians. The last strongholds Assad holds in Syria is the section traditionally rich with Christians. The Christians of Syria have stood with Assad though this conflict.

The US is still supporting forces trying to oust Assad, while Russia is currently launching airstrikes against those same forces. This is becoming a proxy war between the US and Russia.

The Prophets Jeremiah,Isaiah and Zechariah all agree that something terrible which has never happened before is going to occur in Damascus and wider Syria.

I quote from an earlier article of mine,  Syria in Prophecy-

The prophet Isaiah predicted that at the time of the end, a dreadful thing which has not ever happened in history is to occur. Damascus will cease from being a city, no longer will it be a seat of Government, a heap of rubble is it’s future.

Jeremiah implies that shortly before her destruction, Damascus will be surprised that Jerusalem is not “deserted” as she expected, this causes Damascus to lose heart herself.

Damascus has grown feeble; 
She turns to flee, 
And fear has seized her.
Anguish and sorrows have taken her like a woman in labor. 
Why is the city of praise not deserted, the city of My joy? 
Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, 
And all the men of war shall be cut off in that day,” says the LORD of hosts. 
“ I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, 
And it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad.”( Jeremiah 49:24-27)

Whatever the provocation, the destruction of Damascus will reflect badly upon Israel in the court of world opinion. The world will turn on Israel, blaming her for what happens to Damascus. What little favor Israel had enjoyed up till then will shrivel up, it will resemble the last few olives left after the shaking of the olive tree by the reapers.

“ In that day it shall come to pass 
That the glory of Jacob will wane, 
And the fatness of his flesh grow lean. 
It shall be as when the harvester gathers the grain, 
And reaps the heads with his arm; 
It shall be as he who gathers heads of grain 
In the Valley of Rephaim. 
Yet gleaning grapes will be left in it, 
Like the shaking of an olive tree, 
Two or three olives at the top of the uppermost bough, 
Four or five in its most fruitful branches,” 
Says the LORD God of Israel.(Isaiah 17:4-6)

Damascus shall be obliterated in the context of a wider war, which will be destructive of other Arab cities as well, such as the area we call Gaza, which is a terrorist state designated as part of the U.N.imposed “two state solution”, but which God calls, “the nation not desired”…

Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together,
O undesirable nation, 
Before the decree is issued, 
Or the day passes like chaff, 
Before the LORD’s fierce anger comes upon you, 
Before the day of the LORD’s anger comes upon you! (Zechariah 2:1-2)

For Gaza shall be forsaken, 
And Ashkelon desolate; 
They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, 
And Ekron shall be uprooted. 
Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, 
The nation of the Cherethites! 
The word of the LORD is against you, 
O Canaan, land of the Philistines: (Zephaniah 2:4-5)

The one positive aspect of these terrible times, is that even the hardest of men will begin to seek the living God,

In that day a man will look to his Maker,
And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 17:7)

Zechariah echoes Isaiah,

The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.(Zechariah 9:1)

The international outcry that will be raised against Israel will be unprecedented. The nations line up to register complaint in the U.N., newspaper headlines will scream, pundits will wax eloquent with moral indignation, religious leaders will pontificate against Israel, her former lovers will leave her, and it will be extremely unfashionable to stand with God’s chosen people in that day.

Woe 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 rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! 
13 The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters; …(Isaiah 17:11-12)

But the outcry will merely be the prelude to the outpouring of Divine wrath upon all nations . Tribulation such as never occurred upon the earth, the wind and the sea raging, and men’s hearts failing them for fear…

But God will rebuke them and they will flee far away, 
And be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind, 
Like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.(Isaiah 17: 13-14)

But it is as in the evening, which seems always darkest before dawn, such is the tribulation and time of Jacob’s trouble, as Isaiah says,

Then behold, at eventide, trouble! 
And before the morning, he is no more. 
This is the portion of those who plunder us, 
And the lot of those who rob us.(Isaiah 17:14)

Everybody better get right with God!

To Him Who has Ears To Hear…Mystery Babylon pt 2

Thank you for your kind words. Once again, following a tradition by which I feel honored, the Secretary General of the United Nations has invited the Pope to address this distinguished assembly of nations. In my own name, and that of the entire Catholic community, I wish to express to you, Mr Ban Ki-moon, my heartfelt gratitude…Address of …Pope Francis to The General Assembly of the United Nations

Did you catch that?

The Pope, is one of the Gentile Kings of the Earth, having episcopal authority over the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, and claiming to be the vicar of Christ on earth. He has awarded the “Angel of Peace” Medallion to Mahmoud Abbas, the planner of the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre of the Israeli Olympic delegation. Abbas has recently stated that “We welcome every drop of blood shed in Jerusalem…”, in an attempt to further incite violence against Jewish worshippers in their fall Feasts.

The Pope says He comes to the U.N. in “His own name…”.Not in the name of Jesus or in the name of the Father, but in His own name. As in his address to Congress, the “vicar of Christ” never mentioned Jesus by name to the U.N., although he did refer to the Creator, and the “Most High”, he never mentioned Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Is that not odd? Can we imagine Peter or Paul addressing the world congress and never mentioning Jesus?

Jesus once warned Israel,

I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.( John 5:43) 

This is a warning about the Anti-Christ. Jesus is saying that He came to Israel, , “in the Father’s name”, i.e. fulfilling all of the requirements in scripture for the recognition of the Messiah, citing the prophecies, doing all of the works, and speaking the Word of the Father and not his own, (humanly speaking).

But all of that didn’t suffice, the leaders of Israel proved that they didn’t really love God or believe in Him, because when He came to them in Jesus, they rejected him.

But Jesus warned that one day  “Another will come in His own name…”, and that they would receive him.

I find it significant that this Pope came to the UN in his own name, and not in the name of God.

Yom Kippur; Call No Man Father…Mystery Babylon pt 2

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.( Matthew 23:8-10)

Isn’t it interesting that the man who is hailed as the very “Vicar of Christ” , and who in the name of the Church of Christ recently signed a peace treaty with the so-called “Palestinian State” has come to America to meet with the man who virtually gave the terrorist state of Iran a nuclear program and 150 billion dollars, in the face of the fact that Iran considers the obliteration of Israel a “non negotiable” fact?

The irony is that the two gentile rulers are having their unprecedented meeting on the Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur, the day of national fasting, mourning and repentance of sin.

The One, who is the “head” of the Roman Catholic church, the so-called “Holy Father”, will also meet with the U.N., and will hoist the Vatican flag over the U.N. Alongside the “Palestinian” flag, representing the solidarity of the “Holy See” with the Arab claim on land, God gave to the seed of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob as an unconditional covenant forever. See article, The Vatican Switch, will Join Palestine in flying flag .

And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:  For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.  And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.  Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.(Genesis 13:14-17)

Obama, the president of the United States, one of the Gentile Kings of the earth. He is the most hostile president to the state of Israel, we have ever seen in the USA. He is a consistent supporter of Islam, having empowered ISIS, and disrupted the entire Middle East, turning it over to Muslim Brotherhood operatives, not to mention his unprecedented support for the Shia Iranian regime, an inveterate foe of the USA (the great Satan) and Israel,(the little Satan) which it vows to wipe off the face of the earth.

The “Holy Father” is also a gentile “King of the earth and their rulers”.  He is head of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics.

The Pope has called Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, the terrorist who planned the 1972 Munich Slaughter of the Israeli Olympic team, a “man of peace” and gave him an “Angel of Peace Medallion”.Abbas recently is quoted as saying that,“…we welcome every drop of Blood spilled in Jerusalem …”.

Yom Kippur is on the Levitical calendar of “Appointments” Israel has with God. Israel’s God appointed holidays are appointments, in the year and in history. The Spring appointments have already been kept, for The feast of unleavened Bread, the feast of Passover and the feast of First fruits are all realized in the Death of Jesus , the removal of sin by his death, and the resurrection of Jesus three days later.

The Summer feast/appointment has also been kept in history, for it was on the feast of Pentecost that the most high poured out of His Spirit upon all flesh, starting in Jerusalem.

What remains are the fall feasts of Israel, Trumpets, Yom Kippur and The feast of Tabernacles. Trumpets, i.e. Rosh Hoshanna, is a call to Israel to regather. We believe that since the re-birth of the nation of Israel in 1948, the trumpets have been sounding.

Yom Kippur is not a feast but a fast, and a time of deep repentance for Israel. It corresponds to the great Tribulation, and the coming “time of Jacob’s trouble” spoken of in Jeremiah 30. It is observed as “ten days of awe”, soul-searching, repentance, repudiation of all foreign gods, and great trial.

Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:  And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:  Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.( Joel 2:12-18)

I believe that the meeting of these two powerful Gentile leaders on this the one Jewish feast that is a fast, and a call to repentance and soul-searching. Surely the real “Day of Atonement” is coming soon, as all nations turn away from Israel, and Jerusalem is increasingly becoming a “cup of trembling” to all of the nations round about, and a “Burdensome stone” in the road, an impediment to the “New World Order” which both Obama and the “Holy Father” are heavily invested in.

Erratta- I Fell for a fake Quote- I stand corrected

In my previous article I attributed a quote to Pope Francis, which has turned out to be fake, although I found it in about six different places including the Washington Times, Drudge and Jews Views. In the interest of integrity I stand corrected.

Pope Francis did not say the following-

“Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.”

The last thing I would want to do is bear false witness – so please be advised, I was tricked and passed it on- – Pastor Bill Randles
