Oh, how JD has hit the nail on the head with how I am feeling these days!

It is just sheer insanity what we are seeing unfold before our eyes.  But bring that up to anyone and they look at you like you are the insane one.

In these times of strong delusion and deception my only hope is in the Lord, the great I AM!

Geneva Bible (1599)

2Thes 2:1-3 – “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our assembling unto him, That ye be not suddenly moved from your mind, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as it were from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand.  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a departing first, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition.”

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

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.

It is The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To learn more check out the following link.

6 Times Democrats Demonstrated Their Hatred of the Bible
Kerry makes no distinction between the Koran, the Old Testament, or the New Testament; he makes no distinction between the myriad streams of religious thought throughout history. They are all the same. Anyone who believes in ancient codes of morality is out of step with history. In this, Kerry is no different from the rest of his party. Today’s Democratic Party has become the enemy of Biblical religion. In April 2008, then-Senator Obama was caught on tape at a fundraiser in San Francisco. Obama stated: Only idiots, racists, xenophobes, and gun-clingers believe in the Bible.

There are a lot of interesting prophecies intersecting right now.  For those that have not been paying attention they probably missed the few headlines that these preliminary events drew but they were really huge.

First, a few months back, Sec. of State John Kerry announced to the world that the Middle East peace plan was on a 9 month track that would end during April 2014.  And not just anytime in April but on the exact day of a Jewish Feast.

Second, we also have signs in heaven that are going to occur between now and then as the Comet ISON will make its almost month-long appearance in the sky during the month of December.  Then in April of next year, we will have the first of two blood moons, both on Jewish Feast days and also corresponding to the “conclusion” of the peace process as mentioned above.

“…four blood moons coming over the next two years – on the Jewish Passovers on April 15, 2014, and April 4, 2015, and the Feasts of Tabernacles on Oct. 8, 2014, and Sept. 28, 2015.”
Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/10/blood-moons-expert-watch-2014-and-2015/#mWAgYr1pIFZzJWkd.99

And it is not just this time, only 3 other times has a single Blood moon occurred in the last 100 years and all three fall on key years/dates for Israel…

… lunar eclipses foretell things about ISRAEL, and solar eclipses foretell things about other nations.  So I go back and look up solar eclipses with these dame characteristics and what I found is ASTOUNDING!!!  This type of lunar eclipse has happen three previous times in the last 100 years.  They happened in 1948, 1967, and 1973!!  If you know your history, you know that these dates are all dates of every war Israel has fought since her birth in 1948!!!  This eclipse is announcing another war – this time it’s the Ezekiel 38/Psalms 83 war that we’ve been expecting to blow up anytime now.  Every single one of these wars started ONE WEEK TO THE DAY after their corresponding eclipses…   <Full Article/Post>

Third, we now hear that the Iranian Nuke deal (that is really not a deal at all) will have a freeze for 6 months.  That time concluding at the same time in April as the Blood Moons and the Israel/Palestinian peace deal.  Coincidence?  Before you answer let me add in one other tidbit from the past.

Side note:  Is it just me or is Israel standing alone just as the Lord predicted in Zechariah 12:3. Netanyahu even said all of the other nations would regret it and we would be “severely injured”.

Zechariah 12:3 (NASB)

It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely [a]injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

Footnotes:

  1. Zechariah 12:3 Lit scratched

The last time there was a Blood Moon, it was on a Jewish Feast day of Yom Kippur, which was also the time the Yom Kippur War broke out in the Middle East in 1973.  So I ask you again:  coincidence?  No way!  Something is headed our way and it is all aligning, just as God has foretold us through His word, the Bible.

Jesus said in John 14:

John 14:29 (NASB)

29 Now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe.

He did not want us to be surprised by these things or ignorant of them.  We are not to be scared or worried, but to rejoice for He is in control and has promised to keep us (His bride) from the worst.  It is our blessed assurance.

Titus 2:12-14 (NASB)

12 [a]instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of [b]our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

Footnotes:

  1. Titus 2:12 Or disciplining
  2. Titus 2:13 Or the great God and our Savior

We need to stand on the Rock and be lights unto this world as it is growing dark, very dark indeed.  Can you feel it?  I can.  Things are backwards, opposite, and upside down in almost every way and every area of life now.  Isaiah prophesied it would be during the last days.

Isaiah 5:20 (NASB)

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who [a]substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who [b]substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 5:20 Lit set
  2. Isaiah 5:20 Lit set

We are seeing this come to light all around us, in every area of our lives.  Christianity is held up as a hateful religion and Islam is a religion of Peace.  Marriage is bad, unless it is between two members of the same-sex.  Our 2nd amendment and the death penalty is held up as evil, but the killing of an unborn child is considered a right to avoid the “inconvenience” of giving birth and raising them.  If you think the Sun’s cycles may have more to do with the hot and cold trends of our planet than man ever could, you are considered a flat earther/idot.  We can now be charged a tax for simply breathing due to the affordable care act. And today we find our world governments and banks, looking to charge people money to deposit (hold) their money for them and in turn block them from taking it out when they want.

Good is Evil and Evil is Good.  The world is upside down and so few seem to notice!  How distracted have we become?

Isaiah was right.  God was right.  This is a sinful world and we should strive, as adopted children of God, to be “not of this world” but aliens in a foreign land.  Visitors.  Doing His will until He comes back to claim His bride (the church).

Watch this weeks prophecy update from JD, he does an excellent job at tying together the dots and why this is sound doctrine.  Christ will come to rapture His church very soon!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Surprise double update this week on Syria, the hour we find ourselves in, and a great breakdown of Paul’s discussion of the Rapture in 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians.

At the end of the first video JD gives an amazing breakdown of what Communion should mean to us and what the Lord was really saying to the disciples and the church.  We take such a shallow look at things so many times and it is so refreshing to hear the truth and dig deep into the Lord’s word to us.  His blessed reassurance!

I hope you all have been following the avalanche of headlines/articles on Syria and Egypt.  I have not posted much on them as there is simply too much and it is so plentiful that you would have to be blind to miss it.  We are seeing Isaiah 17 and Isaiah 19 being fulfilled and the stage set for Psalms 83 and Ezekiel 38.

The article below jumped out at me this morning as I was scanning the blaze for headlines.  I have been amazed at how quickly the world has flipped in the last couple of days, it is truly breathtaking.  Reading the article Putin sounds like the voice of reason with our US administration as the spoiled rotten child calling names and assigning ownership in hysterics.  It is really astounding.   I heard one commentator stating that we lost our world power status this week to Russia.  If that is the case, then it would certainly address the question that has troubled many prophecy students in the years past and present:  Where is the US during the last days?  Folks we may have just gotten our answer.

I couldn’t believe the response from the WH printed at the end.  It is so childish and lacking in adult leadership.  It sounds more like a four-year old that lost a fight with his older brother than a government official.

That’s all irrelevant,” the White House official said in response. “He put this proposal forward and he’s now invested in it. That’s good. That’s the best possible reaction. He’s fully invested in Syria’s CW disarmament and that’s potentially better than a military strike – which would deter and degrade but wouldn’t get rid of all the chemical weapons. He now owns this. He has fully asserted ownership of it and he needs to deliver.

Unbelievable!  The world is truly upside down…

Russian President Vladimir Putin Speaks ‘Directly to the American People’ on Syria, Jabs ‘Exceptionalism’

Sep. 11, 2013 9:20pm

 
Recent developments in Syria prompted Russian President Vladimir Putin to “speak directly to the American people and their political leaders.” In order to do that, he reached out to the New York Times to publish an op-ed about the implications of “war and peace” and the consequences of taking military action against Syria.

“Relations between us have passed through different stages,” Putin writes. “We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization — the United Nations — was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin Speaks Directly to the American People in NY Times Op Ed

The Russian leader stressed that Syria is “not witnessing a battle for democracy, but an armed conflict between government and opposition in a multireligious country.”

I pulled just a few of the articles from the last 30 days or less.  Read through the headlines and then read Isaiah 17 and Psalms 83 below…

We are seeing these come to pass just as God said they would along with Isaiah 19 in Egypt.

Iran: Armageddon at hand, prepare for war
Iran is again asserting that Armageddon is at hand and that the Islamic regime’s followers, indeed all of Islam, must prepare for a monumental change in the world.

Iranian President-Elect Rouhani: Israel a ‘wound’ that must be removed
Iranian President-Elect Hassan Rouhani on Friday referred to Israel as a “wound” that has afflicted the Muslim world for years and must be removed, Iran’s Mehr News Agency reported. “The Zionist regime is a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed,” Rouhani said at a demonstration in Tehran marking Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day, an annual show of support for the Palestinian cause.

U.S. to Close Embassies in Middle East
Well, this is straight out of an episode of Homeland. According to a CNN investigation, dozens of CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi, Libya, for a top-secret operation on the night of the September 11 attack that killed four Americans. Sources say that since then, the agency has been conducting polygraph examinations with an unprecedented frequency to (more…)

It is pretty chilling to read this in the headlines.  Bible Prophecy is beginning to unfold before our very eyes.

The clerics ruling Iran believe that Khamenei is the one named in a centuries-old hadith who will prepare for the coming of the Islamic last messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam, Mahdi. According to the hadith, Israel is to be destroyed before Mahdi’s re-appearance.

Mojtaba Zolnoor, an adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei in the Revolutionary Guards, has stated publicly that a number of the Ulama (Islamic scholars) and authoritative grand ayatollahs have announced that Khamenei is quite possibly the fabled “Seyed Khorasani.” According to the Islamic hadith, Khorasani is an individual from the region who is not only a companion of the Mahdi, but also is responsible for setting the stage for Mahdi’s re-emergence.

Also, according to close associates of Khamenei, the supreme leader has acknowledged his role in history by telling a confidant (Mohammad Reyshahri) that Khomeini told him personally, “Dear Seyed Ali, it will be during the time of your leadership that the last Shiite Imam, Imam Mahdi, will re-appear.”

The beginning of the article lays out very much (almost word for word) the fulfillment of Psalms 83, which the Islamists feel must take place before the twelfth Imam can appear.

The ayatollah promises a restructuring of the Middle East: “Palestine will be free, have no doubt in this. … Palestinians will return there and there will be a Palestinian government … and that is based on the truth revealed by God. A new Middle East will be … an Islamic Middle East.”

Khamenei attacks Israel for defending itself: “They attacked Lebanon – a mistake. They attacked Gaza – a mistake. They attacked those (Turkish) ships – a mistake. These mistakes, one after another, show that the murderous Zionist regime of Israel is reaching the final fall and destruction of its own non-existence.”

In promising the annihilation of Israel, the supreme leader also says, “There is no doubt that victory awaits the Palestinian people in the future, and the myth of Zionist power over this region will completely vanish, Allah willing.”

It sounds an awful lot like Psalm 83 below, which Iran is working diligently through their proxies to bring about:

Psalm 83

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

83 O God, do not remain quiet;
Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them;
They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.

We are seeing the signs that our Lord promised us we would see to know that the end was near.   We are not to be fearful or surprised that these events come to pass.  It is a joyful moment filled with anticipation for Christians.  For non-believers it is another story, and my heart is heavy for them.

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.

It is The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To learn more check out the following link.
