    Prophecy: The Battle of Armageddon

    The Battle of Armageddon

    Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him (Messiah) who sat on the horse and against His army.

    Revelation 19:15 Now out of His mouth (Messiah) goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.

    The Lord will simply speak as though His words were a great double-edged sword, and all the armies of the antichrist will perish. Isaiah describes the garments of the Lord that will be stained with the blood of His enemies, as one who treads out grapes in a winepress—splashes the blood of grapes upon himself.

    Isaiah asks the Messiah: Why is Your apparel red, And Your garments like one who treads in the winepress? —Isaiah 63:2

    The Lord answers: …He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. —Revelation 19:15

    The fulfillment of this prophecy from Isaiah 63:1-3 is future, as the seven-year Tribulation and the second coming of the Messiah have not yet taken place.

    The war described by this prophecy is fully detailed in Revelation Chapter 16 and 19. This is the most famous battle that will ever be fought on planet earth. Every nation will contribute their fighting men and machinery to assist the new world leader in his assault on Jesus, as He returns to earth. Megiddo is an ancient site of great strategic military importance where some of the world’s most famous battles have taken place. The importance of this conflict cannot be overstated. The winner will have control over the entire Middle East and the world.

    Iran Threatens Attack on Israel over Syrian Crisis

    Iran Threatens Attack on Israel over Syrian Crisis

    In light of the beginning of Rosh Hashanah this next week and the Feast of Trumpets, our thoughts are turned towards Jesus and the fact that He fulfilled all four of the first four feast of Israel upon His first arrival on earth 2,000 years ago. We learned today that movement in the middle east over confrontation with Syria by the United States, may provide a link between the return of the Lord during the Feast of Trumpets, and a potential new war between Israel and Iran.

    The Iranian Guard announced that any further involvement by the United States against Syria will move Iran to launch an attack against Israel.

    “An American attack on Syria will result in the destruction of Israel and have severe repercussions for the US and its allies, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards said,” reported the Times of Israel. “A possible war in Syria ‘will result in the imminent destruction of the Zionist regime of Israel,’ General Mohammad Ali Jafari said late Wednesday, according to a report Thursday in the state-sponsored Iranian Tasnim News Agency,” the Times noted. 1

    “The American ‘proxy war scenario’ in Syria has failed, so Washington and the West have resorted to a “direct military threat,” which, if carried out, will have ‘severe consequences…2

    There are seven feasts that Israel was to observe from the Book of Leviticus Chapter 23, and each one of these has a counterpart in the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled in the New Testament

    War Between the U.S. and Iran Imminent

    War Between the U.S. and Iran Imminent

    Recent escalations between the United States and Iran have made war with Iran by the United States and Israel a near certainty.

    Intelligence sources inside the the Pentagon report that plans are underway for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, as well as the current naval blockade by the Iranian Navy, “at any time.” If the United States government allows Iran to stop the flow of oil in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, the fragile economy of the U.S. will be thrown into great jeapardy.

    With American public opinion being greatly diminished towards President Obama, his chances of re-election to a second term are seen as impossible without direct intervention in the Persian Gulf by the Obama Administration.

    Americans blame the Obama Administration for the recent rise in fuel prices, and they will exact their displeasure at the polls this coming November 6, 2012. A military strike now with the results being a protection of America’s interest and a continued oil supply through the Persian Gulf, is viewed by the Obama Administration as the only sure fix for the President’s chances for re-election to a second term.

  • Antichrist’s Identity: He who comes in the name of Allah

    Antichrist’s Identity: He who comes in the name of Allah

    Daniel 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

    Part of the identity of the world ruler who shall assume a position of absolute power during the last seven years of the Tribulation, is that he will have the authority to “Change Times and law”. The meaning of this verse is given by the words within the verse. (Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law). The coming antichrist will change the calendar of months in order to facilitate the persecution of those who come into a relationship with Jesus Christ during the seven year Tribulation. This new world ruler will not allow anyone to worship anything other than his god. In order to enforce this rule, the calendar will be changed and the days prescribed for worship will be instituted and enforced by the antichrist’s enforcers.

    What if Death Was the Cost of Following Jesus?

    What if Death Was the Cost of Following Jesus?

    If today, it actually cost you something to believe in, or claim to be a follower of Jesus, would you be willing to pay that cost?

    Are you sure?

    If to this point it has not cost you anything to be a follower of Jesus, it is highly unlikely that you would now be willing to pay the cost that might be asked of you. If we have not been wiling to walk away from all sin in our life and correct our behavior in order to follow Jesus, it is not likely that we would be willing to now, to lay down our life for Him, if that was the cost demanded.

    Iran Prepares For a Military Strike by Israel

    Iran Prepares For a Military Strike by Israel

    Intelligence reports from inside Iran say that the Iranian army has recently conducted several air defense drills, simulating an attack by Israel on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

    Iran has prepared their missile systems and advanced anti-aircraft artillery for an air strike by the Israeli Air force as early as next month.

    At the same time, Israel has recently conducted air drills with Italy and Israeli Defense Force fighter pilots. The drill was intended to simulate a missile attack by Iran on the capital city of Tel-Aviv. This in preparation for a retaliatory strike by Iran on Israel, should an air strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities be deemed necessary.

    Iran has developed a military with technological abilities unheard of in their history, all in preparation for a future attack on Israel. The president of Iran has made it his life’s mission to usher in the arrival of the Islamic Mahdi by the annihilation of all Jews in Israel.

  • 2012 Peace Plan in Israel and U.N. Resolution 181 in Prophecy

    2012 Peace Plan in Israel and U.N. Resolution 181 in Prophecy

    In 1947 a historic resolution was recommended for the partitioning of Israel into two new states. The purpose of the proposal was to allow the Palestinian people to have their own state within the state of Israel.
    That proposal was called Resolution 181, the 1947 Partition Plan.

    In order for that resolution to be binding, both the Jews and the Arabs had to agree on the terms of that plan. The resolution was adopted on November 29, 1947 by a vote of 33-12 under the General Assembly of the United Nations.

    The United States, Soviet Union, France, and Australia supported the resolution. Syria, Egypt Saudi Arabia and Iraq rejected resolution 181 with the threat of military action if it were to be implemented.

    The purpose of the resolution was to provide statehood for the Jewish people and allow the Palestinian people to live alongside them in peace. Because the Arab states rejected this resolution and the need for Israel’s right to survive, the United Nations took further steps to effect peace in the region by the approval of Resolution 181.

  • Biblical Justification For Killing Osama Bin Laden?

    Biblical Justification For Killing Osama Bin Laden?

    Since the dramatic killing of the world’s most sought after terrorist Osama Bin Laden by a U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Team, many have questioned whether his killing was a justifiable action. Some Christian leaders have publicly stated that there is no Biblical Justification for the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

    When I heard these statements I immediately asked the question: Have they really read their Bible?

    The Bible is filled with many examples of permission given by God for the killing of people who perpetrate violence and death on other individuals.

    The Amalekites are an example of a nation to whom God specifically instructed His people to completely annihilate, men, women and children.

    1 Samuel 15:2-3 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’ ”

    The Last Days: Where Is The World Headed?

    For many people the 9.0 earthquake in Japan, the ensuing Tsunami, Nuclear Meltdown and spread of radioactive debris across the atmosphere, teamed with the Arab uprising in several countries, has caused a great pause in our questions for tomorrow.

    What is coming next? Where is all this leading? What does the Bible have to say about these events and are they an indication that we are living in the Last Days?

    In the last part of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus began to explain what the conditions of the world would be like in the final days.

    Matthew 24:3-8 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

    The disciples wanted to know when the last days would arrive and what would be the signs of Jesus’ return.

    Jesus said:

    The last days would be characterized by a great time of Deception.
    Many will come and claim to be the Christ.
    There will be many wars and rumors of wars.
    There will be Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes in various places.

  • Battle For the World: Shi’a Versus Sunni

    Battle For the World: Shi’a Versus Sunni

    A few days ago, shephard Smith of Fox News made the comment: “The whole world is falling down around us…”
    Shepherd made this comment after having reported on the Muslim uprising’s that have recently began in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Two normally quiet and peaceful nations, now thrust into the same battles over leadership that Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Algeria, Sudan, and Somalia are experiencing.

    These are Muslim against Muslim revolutions. For most non-Mulsim’s we don’t have a clue what are they really fighting over?

    The major news channels report that these people are in revolt because of dictatorial governments in these Arab nations that oppress and impinge the civil liberties of their people. The truth is that the cause of these uprising’s is much more sinister.

    Amongst the Muslim people, there are two groups that have apposing ideas about how their religion should be led.

    Islam originated with the prophet Muhammad. When he died, a division began with two groups called the Shi’a and the Sunni.

    Sunni Muslims hold the position that leadership for Muslims should come from the most capable.

    Shi’a Muslims hold the position that leadership for Muslims should come from the Prophet Muhammad’s own family.

  • The Pre-Tribulation, A Time of Distress

    The Pre-Tribulation, A Time of Distress

    It has become apparent by now that the world has entered a new period of time that is unparalleled in all of human history.

    Marked acceleration of natural disasters that include Earthquakes, Tsunami’s, Nuclear Meltdown, Rioting, Violence and dramatic increases in sin and lawlessness. These events are not mere happenstance, they are voices speaking of a greater Tribulation that is to come.

    Jesus said that in this world we would experience Tribulation. Then He added that we should be of good cheer because He has overcome the world:

    John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

    It may be that by these words, Jesus was giving us an advanced warning of a pre-tribulation period that wold occur before the seven year tribulation described in the Book of Revelation.

    Just as a woman who is about to give birth, will experience the birth pains associated with the immanent arrival of her child, we are experiencing the birth pains of a coming tribulation that will lead to the return of Jesus for His church.

  • The Most Dangerous Man in the World

    The Most Dangerous Man in the World

    Few people realize just how dangerous Mahmoud Ahmadinejad really is. The agenda that he hides beneath his nuclear ambitions and hatred of the United States and Israel, are just the surface of his true long term goals.

    Because Ahmadinejad is a deeply religious man who believes that he is called by god to usher in the coming of the Islamic messiah, he is compelled to fulfill his calling. The president of Iran sincerely believes that he has been called by god to usher in a new world-wide Islamic government that effects every nation and people on the earth.

    Although Washington D.C. Continually underestimates the intentions of Ahmadinejad, it is future history itself that this determined leader hopes to dominate. Through diplomatic channels Ahmadinejad keeps the U.N. and Europe preoccupied with the seeking of peaceful solutions to Iran’s nuclear ambitions by diplomatic means. What Washington and the E.U. Do not realize is that there are no negotiable terms in Ahmadinejad’s vocabulary. He will settle for nothing less than the complete annihilation of Israel and the United States, which he believes will usher in the Mahdi, Islam’s long awaited savior.

    Iran, Ahmadinejad and the Middle East in Prophecy

    Iran, Ahmadinejad and the Middle East in Prophecy

    The revolution in Egypt, the ensuing violence in Bahrain, Iran, Yemen, Libya and Tunisia, leaving the question: Who’s Next?

    The key player in all of the middle east strategy is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Surprisingly what drives him onward in his quest to annihilate Israel is his belief in prophecy.

    Ahmadinejad believes in a radical Shiite ideology, with a world view that comes from his belief in the imminent return of the Islamic Messiah called “The Mahdi”.

    Under this world view, the Muslim nations of the world will rule the entire planet. Ahmadinejad believes that the Mahdi will appear on the world scene in his lifetime. This belief is what is behind his drive to destroy Israel and wipe the entire nation off the face of the earth.

    Israel is called by Ahmadinejad; “The little satan”. The United States is referred to as “The Great Satan.” According to Ahmadinejad, the Muslim Messiah cannot come into the world scene until Israel is first destroyed. Many ask whether or not Iran will launch an attack against Israel. Because Ahmadinejad believes the Mahdi is waiting for Israel to be destroyed, it is a certainty that we can expect an all out attack on Israel by Iran, in the near future.

  • Obama’s Indecisiveness and Ezekiel Chapter 38

    Obama’s Indecisiveness and Ezekiel Chapter 38

    There is a verse of scripture in the text of Ezekiel chapter 38 where a group of nations come to attack Israel during the last days. This event will happen either just prior to the Rapture of the Church or shortly thereafter.

    Surprisingly the nations around the world that witness this action, do little more than make a public ridicule. Even more interesting are the nations of today that are represented by these lands mentioned in Ezekiel 38:10-13.

    Ezekiel 38:10 “Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, “I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’- 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, “Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ‘

    Egyptian Revolution Inspiring an Iranian Revolution

    Egyptian Revolution Inspiring an Iranian Revolution

    With the amazing peaceful revolution of Egypt in just 18 days, more oppressive, dictatorial governments in other Islamic countries are on the horizon.

    The people of Iran have long dreamed of a free and democratic system where they could exercise the rights guaranteed to other countries with free and impartial elections. As Iranians watch the amazing change of events happen in Egypt, intelligence reports coming out of Iran are that a quiet revolution is also in the works in this ancient Persian kingdom.

    The desire to be free is not a uniquely American dream, it is the desire of every man to live in freedom and peace.

    Many of the experts had predicted that the toppling of Egypt’s Mubarak government would leave a vacuum in that area, allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to take power and create an Islamic state similar to Iran.

    Today we see the opposite occurring, as peace and freedom loving people in many oppressive Islamic states are gaining encouragement that they could experience the same kind of change in their own country.

  • Egypt in Context with God’s Plan for Israel

    Egypt in Context with God’s Plan for Israel

    There is one possible scenario concerning Egypt that many have not considered. It is important to remember that Egypt, the Arab nations, and the people of Egypt are not the powers that decide the outcome of world affairs. There is still a great God who remains on His throne and rules the affairs of men from heaven.

    The course of human history is in the hands of the Lord, and the final outcome of Egypt and the government that will lead the citizens of that nation are determined by the one who oversees every institution of man.

    Romans 13:1-2 “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.”

    One of the mistakes that man makes often is that he does not consider God in determining the course of history. There have been many great and powerful leaders in past history who made the error of believing that they were the force that determined the outcome of their kingdom.

  • When You See Jerusalem Surrounded…

    When You See Jerusalem Surrounded…

    I was thinking about the events of the past week regarding the revolution in Egypt and the reorganization of Jordan by King Abdullah. The radical elements inside these two countries want to do in Egypt and Jordan what they have already done in many of the nations of the Middle East. To bring radical Islam as the director of their government and religious institutions.

    While reading Luke chapter 21, I was struck by the words that Jesus spoke as He as teaching about the last days just prior to His return.

    Luke 21:20-22 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”

    “When we see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that it’s destruction is near…”

    I opened up a map of the middle east on my Macbook and looked at Israel. All around this tiny nation, barely the size of the state of New Jersey, were many large and powerful Arab nations.

    For the past 30 years, there have been just three of these nations that have stood with Israel and resisted internal and external pressure to transform their countries into governments led by radical Islamic leadership. Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt have helped make the security of Israel possible and have remained allies of the United States.

    Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have remained free of radical Islam for nearly three decades and have maintained a friendly status quo with Israel. With the events of the past week concerning Egypt’s attempted ouster of their leadership, largely supported by the radical elements of Islam, and the King of Jordan firing his entire cabinet to replace them with more moderate members, two of the thee three walls of protection for Israel are near the point of collapse.

  • Egyptian Crisis Centers on Israel’s Security

    Egyptian Crisis Centers on Israel’s Security

    As we watch the events unfold in Egypt and the uncertainty of their future government, we are directed to the question of how Egypt’s instability will affect Israel’s security in the future.

    If you live in Israel today you have to be concerned that Egypt will take the same course that Iran took some 30 years ago. Once the radical Islamic leadership took power in Iran their stated purpose was to insure that Israel found her destruction.

    A turning from being friendly towards Israel to that of an enemy of Israel is one of the possible outcomes of the current uprising in Egypt. When the dust settles will the new government of Egypt maintain a non aggressive position towards Israel? How many other Arab nations will join the uprising and form new governments hostile towards Israel as a result of Egypt’s revolution?

    This morning the King of Jordan announced a complete reorganization of his government. King Abdullah has so far been a neutral Arab nation having been placed by God at Israel’s close Eastern border. Similar moves are occurring in many other Arab nations as a result of the people of Egypt revolutionizing their country.

    The neutrality of Jordan and Egypt in the past was one of the primary factors that have contributed to the safety and security of Israel. The United States has paid billions of dollars every year to these friendly Arab nations to insure their cooperation in Israel’s security.

    From a prophetic view, when the battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 begins, two of the Arab nations that are not mentioned as coming to attack Israel are Jordan and Egypt. Jordan is mentioned as the single place of safety for the Jews fleeing Israel during the reign of the antichrist. In the book of Isaiah God requests that Jordan shelter His “outcasts from the hand of the spoiler…”

    Isaiah 16:4 “Let My outcasts dwell with you, O Moab; Be a shelter to them from the face of the spoiler…”

    Beginning at the mid-way point of the Great Tribulation, the Jews in Israel will have the veil removed that currently covers their eyes and prevents them from seeing that Jesus is their Messiah. When the antichrist announces that he is God and that all the world should worship him, the Jews will flee Israel for Petra in the nearby nation of Jordan. It is there in Jordan that the antichrist is forbidden by God to capture that nation or do any harm to the Jews being sheltered there.
