• Prophecy: America Will Repeat Israel’s Greatest Error

    Prophecy: America Will Repeat Israel’s Greatest Error

    It was because of this gradual decline in the obedience of the people of Israel, forgetting the Lord’s “precepts and judgments”, that God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to siege their city and take captive their people.

    If we believe that the United States of America was called by God to be a special nation above all other nations, for the purpose of displaying His great power, love, and grace, can we as a nation avoid a similar fate if we turn away from God?

    If God did not spare Israel the invasion of a pagan nation and the total destruction and loss of everything they held dear, can we escape, if we follow the very same path they took?

    It is no secret that America is not the same country that it was in former days. We have become a social welfare nation. A dwelling place for the execution of the unborn for convenience. We have seen over the course of the past 40 years, the degradation of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, and the allowance of sexual sin; men with men, and women with women. Our government spends vastly more than it takes in with a current massive increase in the national debt of well over 16 Trillion dollars.

  • Prophecy is Directed Towards Fulfillment by God’s Sovereignty

    Prophecy is Directed Towards Fulfillment by God’s Sovereignty

    In examining the Old Testament prophecy that the Messiah will be betrayed by a friend for thirty pieces of silver. We find that God is intentionally causing the prophecy to be difficult to fulfill, by the addition of impossible requirements

    Zechariah 11:12-13 Then I said to them, “If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain.” So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. And the LORD said to me, “Throw it to the potter”—that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the LORD for the potter.

    When we arrive at the New Testament fulfillment of these words, we find that the circumstances surrounding this fulfillment are trull stunning

    Matthew 26:14-16 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver. So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.

    Israel sold her Messiah for the price of a slave who had been gored by an ox.

    Exodus 21:32 If the ox gores a male or female servant, he shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.

    This is all that Jesus was worth to the Jews and the religious leaders of Israel. The thirty shekels that the chief priest paid Judas for the Lord’s betrayal was intended as an insult towards Jesus. Though He created everything that exists, and He came first to His own people, they insulted, rejected, and butchered Him on a Roman cross.

    Prophecy: When Messiah Comes, Israel Will Have False Teachers

    Prophecy: When Messiah Comes, Israel Will Have False Teachers

    The Jews who had believed in Jesus as their Messiah, evacuated Jerusalem after its first siege in 66 AD, and ahead of the final Roman siege in 70 AD. Just as Jesus had predicted, there was a massive slaughter of those who remained in Jerusalem and did not believe the words of Jesus.

    The Roman army general, Titus, who later became the Emperor, came with his second in command, Tiberius Julius Alexander. Titus brought his army to the western side of Jerusalem. Three legions of soldier came from 5th Macedonica, 12th Fulminata, and 15th Apollinaris. On the east side of Jerusalem, Titus brought 10th Fretenis, near the Mount of Olives.

    The strategy was simple; cut off the food and water supplies to Jerusalem and starve the people into submission.

    Many people died of starvation during this siege of Titus, as the food supplies of the Jews inside the city of Jerusalem were depleted. Some people resorted to eating the flesh of their dead in order to survive. This was the fulfillment of the prophecy of Zechariah 11:9 “Let those that are left eat each other’s flesh.”

    During Passover, Titus allowed the pilgrims to enter the city to celebrate Passover, but then refused to allow them to depart. A few attacks by the Jews on the Roman soldiers killed some of Titus men. In an insightful move by Titus, he dispatched his men to bring the Jewish historian “Josephus” to the city to try and reason with the Jews to surrender peacefully. Instead the Jews put an arrow into Josephus, viewing him as a traitor for seeking the surrender of Jerusalem to the Romans.

  • If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    It is just one day before the world is supposed to end, according to some not-so-experts. Survival gear, Ready-to-Eat meals, guns and ammunition are selling at a brisk pace. Many people are taking the threat of Earth’s end seriously.

    Scientists say that there is no chance that the world will end tomorrow. Theologians postulate that there is no indication in the Bible that December 21, 2012 is the end of the world.

    I have written extensively on the subject, and I am certain that there are no Biblical prophecies that define 12-21-2012 as the final day of the existence of life on earth.

    The Bible does say that the end of the world will come at a specific time, and it actually tells us the precise moment that the end of the world will occur. First Jesus will return to the earth in an event called “The Rapture”. This will happen quickly, violently, and without any warning. Suddenly, perhaps a Billion people will disappear from the earth and be seen no more.

    The Bible describes the Rapture with these words:

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    Verse 18 encourages those who understand the meaning of these words, to find “comfort” in them. If we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, and are awaiting His return, then these words can bring us great comfort. If on the other hand, we have not committed our life to Jesus Christ, then the thought of a Billion people suddenly vanishing from the face of the earth is very frightening.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Chronological List of Events For the Last Days

    A Chronological List of Events For the Last Days

    This is the second in a four-part series on the Last Days. In this study we will look at a Chronology of the events from the present time in history, up to the end of time here on the earth, as described in the Bible

    Two of the most asked questions from those who are interested in Bible Prophecy, are

    “What is going to happen next in the world?”

    “What does the Bible have to say about the events of the Last Days?”

    Jesus said that the entire scope of all Prophecy in the last days, is centered around the nation of Israel. For almost 2,000 years the Jews were scattered all over the face of the earth. Being without a land of their own, they had lost their national identity and their homeland.

    While Israel was without their own country, the Prophet Ezekiel wrote of a time in the last days when God would draw the Jews from all over the face of the earth, and place them back to their own land again.

    Ezekiel 37:21-22 “Then say to them, “Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land…

    The promise of restoration by the Lord, is that once the Jews are back in their own land again, they will be protected by the Lord and dwell there permanently. Once they are in their land, in the last days, the Lord will allow Israel to rebuilt their Temple again and re-institute the temple sacrifice.

    Ezekiel 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore.

    Israel is often referred to as being like a “fig tree” in the old testament:

    Hosea 9:10 “I found Israel Like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers As the firstfruits on the fig tree in its first season.

    Jesus said that when we see the fig tree once again blossom and put forth leaves, that we know that summer is near. This is a poetic play on words that was understood by the Jews to mean that when Israel became a nation again,back in their own land, that the Lord’s return was near.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    God has intervened into the affairs of mankind many times. The original King James Bible faithfully records these events. And it is always exciting to discover archaeological remains that increase our understanding of these historical events. It is a tragic fact that many “secular” records have been found that totally confirm history as presented in the Bible but portions of these have been intentionally destroyed or hidden by “scholars” (evolutionists\atheists) who take it upon themselves to “manage” archaeological evidence to suit their own deceptive purposes. The Turin Papyrus, which was prepared in the late 18th dynasty and included lists of all the kings of every dynasty of ancient Egypt through the 18th, was found in a temple excavation during the 19th century. The King of Sardinia carefully preserved it and entrusted it to some “scholars” at Turin for translation. It arrived in perfect condition but the “scholars” destroyed or hid most of it because they realized that it proved the “long dynastic” history of Egypt to be untrue. To “explain” the “changed condition” of the papyrus, they accused the king of Sardinia of sending it “unwrapped”. The Palermo Stone contained a similar list, and while many “scholars” quote from “missing parts” of the stone, “unapproved researchers” can only have access to a few fragments. It is obvious that the stone was “broken” recently as all inner edges of the fragments show recent fracture conditions.

    A leading “archaeologist” on the board of B.A.R. once said to me in the presence of Mary Nell, ” Your problem, Ron, is that you excavate a location to see what is there; you should decide what you want to be there first and then make it turn out that way”. Mary Nell had refused to believe me when I told her that this is what archaeologists do. She was shocked to hear it “from the horse’s mouth”.

    Those of you who like to “dig” through history books might wish to read ARCHAIC EGYPT by W.B. Emery-Penguin Books Reprint 1984. This author is one of the rare few who admit how truly limited our knowledge of ancient Egypt is: “Unfortunately, our knowledge of the archaic hieroglyphs is so limited that reliable translation of these invaluable texts is at present beyond our power and we can only pick out odd words and groups which give us only the vaguest interpretations.” (p. 59.) Yet, in the majority of books, translations and conclusions are never stated as being theory; they are stated as firm fact.

  • The Prophetic Implications of Egypt

    The Prophetic Implications of Egypt

    Ezekiel 38:6 “Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops-many people are with you.”

    Gomer was the area just north of Turkey. Again, a Moslem nation who would like nothing better than to push all of the Jews of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea.

    Togarmah, also in the area of the present day Turkey. A nation and people who are Moslem and who are openly against the nation of Israel.

    We have Russia descending over the mountains north of Israel with a confederacy of Moslem nations in what is apparently a “Holy Jihad” against Israel, “A Holy war…”

    Then there are surprisingly a number of Moslem nations that are not listed here. More important than the nations that Ezekiel 38 mentions are those nations that should be a part of this list but are conspicuously omitted.

    Notice that Egypt is not named as coming with this confederacy of Moslem nations coming against Israel.

    Also Syria, another strong Muslim nation outspoken against Israel is surprisingly not mentioned. But also. Presently Syria has been trying to negotiate peace with Israel to regain some of their former possession; the Golan Heights.

    Iraq is also not mentioned in Ezekiel’s list of nations, why? One would expect that this nation would clearly want Israel destroyed. In the United States conflict with Iraq we greatly diminished Iraq’s ability to attack anything after the Gulf war and years following the Gulf war.

    Jordan is not mentioned in this list. The Bible describes Jordan as a nation that the antichrist has no power over when he comes to rule the world. For some reason Jordan has chosen to not to be involved in the conflict between the Moslem nations and Israel, why? This is interesting because Jordan is where the Rock city of Petra is located, the location where many of those who study this prophecy believe that the Lord will protect and shelter Israel for the last 3 ½ years of the Great Tribulation, after she flees Jerusalem at the “abomination of desolation”.

  • Understanding The Book of Daniel Chapter 9

    Understanding The Book of Daniel Chapter 9

    If you have been a student of the Book of Daniel and found that it is a little difficult to understand when it comes to chapter 9, you are not alone. I have been studying this amazing book and specifically chapter 9 for almost 36 years. From the moment that I first heard the prophecy of the 70 weeks taught, I was held captive by it’s mystery.

    To consider that the Lord revealed the exact date of His first coming to earth as being on Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 a.d amazed me.

    For any serious student of the Bible, the study of Biblical Prophecy is the most fascinating aspects of devoting yourself to diligent Bible Study. Any person who can claim that the Bible is not the Word of God and has no relevance for today, has never studied the prophecies of Daniel chapter 9.

    In some of the former commentaries on the Book of Daniel, there has been several errors in interpreting chapter 9 in relation to the actual historical events surrounding Daniel’s Prophecy.

    One of these errors was that the 70 years of Israel’s captivity by Babylon was to end with the coming of the Messiah. We know from history that the actual captivity lasted only 62 years. According to Daniel chapter 9:25, the period of time from the captivity until the coming of the Messiah was 62 weeks of years plus 7 weeks of years.

    The 70 weeks of years foretold by Daniel’s prophecy, or 490 years are actually related to the “Desolation’s of Israel”.

    These errors came from the fact that some former interpreters of Daniel’s Prophecy did not distinguish between:

    1. The Servitude of Israel.

    2. The Captivity of Israel.

    3. The Desolations of Israel.

  • Signs of Jesus Return: Earthquake Rocks Israel

    Signs of Jesus Return: Earthquake Rocks Israel

    The book of Zechariah describes the fact that when Jesus returns to earth at the end of the seven year Tribulation Period, it will be at the mount of Olives just outside Jerusalem.

    Zechariah 14:4 “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.”

    At the moment that Jesus feet touch the soil of the mount of olives, the earth will fracture and split into two pieces moving north and south.

    Scientists have discovered that one of the largest tectonic plate faults on the earth is in this area of the Jordan valley. Many years ago a large hotel had planned to build a resort on the mount of olives. After an extensive study of the site it was discovered that there was a large fracture in the earth running right through the middle of the mount of olives. Plans to build this new resort were discontinued indefinitely.

    On Saturday a moderate earthquake measuring 4.o on the Richter scale shook the northern portion of the Jordan valley causing many Israeli’s who live in that area to panic. It was only a mild earthquake and did little damage, this time. It is for certain that as the day of Jesus return for His church at the Rapture is to happen at any moment now, the early birth pains of the day Zechariah spoke of when the mount of olives will split, is also growing nearer.

    Jews Teach Christians About Jesus

    Jews Teach Christians About Jesus

    A Jewish Hebrew scholar, a self-described “former Pharisee,” is providing Christians with some startling new revelations about their faith.

    Nehemia Gordon, a Semitic-language expert and one of the Dead Sea Scrolls translators, is currently in the United States, lecturing in churches and Christian Bible studies on the person he calls “the real Yeshua,” Jesus’ actual Hebrew name, which means “salvation.”

    He is the author of “The Hebrew Yeshua vs. the Greek Jesus,” a book and DVD teaching series that is causing a sensation among the Christians all over the world who are rediscovering the Hebrew roots of their faith, recognizing that Jesus was, indeed, a very Torah-observant Jew, not a Gentile who came to do away with the law.

    Some of Gordon’s most important discoveries came in his translation of what he believes to be the original Hebrew text of the Gospel of Matthew.

    The King James translation of Matthew 23:2-4 has befuddled Christians for hundreds of years. While Jesus indicted the Pharisees, calling them “vipers” and worse, He seems to suggest doing what they say to do in this verse: “Saying the scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”
