We are seeing Ezekiel 38 play out right in front of us.
Have you noticed we have completely forgotten the Iran threat due to the distractions of Benghazi, US Election, Sandy Hook, US debt ceiling and Mali Attacks?
The distraction has worked as Iran continues push unabated for Nuclear weapons and now Russia has formalized its alliance with Iran. We are also sending F-16 fighters and Tanks to Egypt, arming Israel’s enemy…
Almost all the pieces are in place.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
