If the Obama team is this hostile toward Israel now before the election, what will it be like after?

We are well down the path of Zechariah 12:3 fulfillment.

The world is upside down.  We tear down Israel, but work to build a peace agreement with Iran.

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.

Another great overview by JD of Bible prophecy.  He reviews the staggering number of headlines we have seen over just 4 days.

What really jumped out at me this week was his statement:

It is not enough to understand the times but we should know what to do in light of the signs.

What should we be doing?  What is God laying on your heart?  Time is short.

Maranatha Lord, come quickly!

Below I pulled just nine articles from this weeks cycle (there are more) that I think give us a good pulse of  the prophetic event that will occur in the near future.  (My guess is before the end of the year.)

There are five key prophecies that I think are on the verge of being fulfilled.

Isaiah 17:1 – Destruction of Damascus

Psalm 83 – Attack of Israel by its neighbors – Purpose to wipe them off the face of the earth

Zechariah 12:3 – All nations turn on Israel and will be cut to pieces

Ezekiel 38 – Surprise attack on Israel from coalition of Gog/Magog and Islamic allies – take spoils

Isaiah 19 – Rise of brutal leader in Egypt that will persecute the Egyptian people

Let me quote a few verses from the above to see if you have heard any headlines or quotes that are similar to these over the last year.

Psalm 83:4

English Standard Version (ESV)

They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”

Sound like anything we have seen spoken by Iran, Hezbollah, or Hamas?  How about the Palestinians?  The Muslim Brotherhood (Egypt) certainly has, almost word for word.

Zechariah 12:2-3

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup [a]that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. 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 [b]injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

With the recent revelation that our government has sided with Iran, can you name a country whose government/heads of state stands with Israel?  I do not see any vocal supporters.

Ezekiel 38:13

English Standard Version (ESV)

13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders[a] will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’


  1. Ezekiel 38:13 Hebrew young lions

We (the US) are the young lions.  Can you see our current leaders saying these words?  Can you seeing them in their naiveté (real or perceived), stating this?  It certainly aligns with their stance to far to lukewarm diplomacy instead of action.

Isaiah 17:1

English Standard Version (ESV)

An Oracle Concerning Damascus

17 An oracle concerning Damascus.

Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city
and will become a heap of ruins.

Any chance this happens soon?  Or is currently underway?  Syria is on fire.

Isaiah 19:1-4

English Standard Version (ESV)

An Oracle Concerning Egypt

19 An oracle concerning Egypt.

Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud
and comes to Egypt;
and the idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence,
and the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them.
And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians,
and they will fight, each against another
and each against his neighbor,
city against city, kingdom against kingdom;
and the spirit of the Egyptians within them will be emptied out,
and I will confound[a] their counsel;
and they will inquire of the idols and the sorcerers,
and the mediums and the necromancers;
and I will give over the Egyptians
into the hand of a hard master,
and a fierce king will rule over them,
declares the Lord God of hosts.


  1. Isaiah 19:3 Or I will swallow up

Reading those verses sounds almost exactly like current events.  Swiftly, Egypt will be thrown into civil war, out of that there will be confusion and deception, and a harsh & fierce ruler will rise up to lead Egypt and rule over them.  Not just lead them, but rule over them.  Setting the stage for Psalm 83, which has Egypt turn on Israel and attack them.

So those are just a few of the key verses, if you read the full selections above, it will sound like a current day news story.  It is all coming to fruition.

How much closer then is the rapture of the church?

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!


John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, the most honest and clearheaded person in foreign policy, is saying that Israel should not wait to attack Iran because Barack Obama will never come to Israel’s aid. In an interview published in Maariv, Bolton stated: There is no way at this stage to prevent Iran from going nuclear without use of force. It is very unfortunate in my opinion, but I see no possibility that Obama will use military force, and therefore it falls upon Israel.

‘Iran must steer clear of US interests in Gulf’
The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday. According to the report, Washington used covert back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel in a strike that may spark a regional conflict.

US scales down joint military drill with Israel
Against a background of friction between the US and Israel over thwarting Iran’s nuclear drive, Washington says it will scale down its participation in what was planned to be the largest ever joint Israeli-American military exercise, Time Magazine reported Friday. The Austere Challenge 12 exercise, to be held in October, was to feature thousands of soldiers and advanced anti-missile defense systems and simulate simultaneous fire from Iran and Syria.

Iran to hold massive air defense drill in October
Iran will hold a massive air defense drill in October incorporating aerial and ground forces, Iranian air defense commander Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili announced on Saturday. Esmaili said that the maneuver will include all of the Iranian army’s air defense systems, as well as Iranian air force fighter jets, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iranian state news agency Press TV reported.

Dempsey: I don’t want to be complicit in Iran strike
Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey said Thursday that he did not want to be “complicit” if Israel chose to strike Iran’s nuclear program, positing that a premature attack would dissolve the international pressure on the Islamic Republic, The Guardian reported.

‘PM tells US ‘time has run out’ on Iran diplomacy’
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got into a diplomatic shouting match with US Ambassador Dan Shapiro over US President Barack Obama’s handling of Iran’s nuclear program, saying “time has run out” for diplomacy, Yediot Aharonot cited a source as saying on Friday. …A source that participated in the meeting said that a particularly angry and stressed Netanyahu began a tirade against the US president, attacking him for not doing enough on Iran.

Khamenei: Time for new world order
The world, Khamenei said “Is in transition towards a new international order and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) can and should play a new role.”

PM: NAM summit in Tehran is a disgrace to humanity
PM Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday evening strongly condemned the Non-Aligned Movement summit taking place in Tehran, calling it a disgrace. “Today, over 120 countries are meeting in Tehran, while the regime there denies the Holocaust, and works to destroy the Zionist state – this is a disgrace to humanity,” the PM said.– “the presence of these 120 states in Iran is a sign that the world’s pledge “never again” after the Holocaust, is hollow.’

UN chief to see Iran leaders ahead of summit
UN chief Ban Ki-moon to meet Iran’s top leaders in Tehran on Wednesday on a visit hailed by the Islamic republic as a diplomatic coup over arch-foes the United States and Israel.-The US State Department said such a visit “sends a very strange signal with regard to support for the international order,” stressing that Iran was “in violation of so many of its international obligations and posing a threat to neighbours.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this month told Ban he would be making “a big mistake” if he attended.

If you’re not certain you’re saved, here is what you should do, right now:
  1. Acknowledge that you have sinned against a holy God and ask for forgiveness (even if you don’t feel you deserve it) (Rom. 3:23).  Genuinely feel the pain of your sin and be willing to turn from it (repent) (Acts 3:19).
  2. Believe in your heart and mind that Jesus is the Son of God, that he died on the cross for you (John 3:1-18) in your place, and was raised back to life.  There is no one else you can turn to (John 14:6): “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”
  3. Confess that you are trusting Jesus as your personal Savior.  Since Jesus is alive, you can talk to him.  This is called prayer.  So talk to him right now, in your own words, accept his invitation to know him.
It’s simple faith through grace, the kind of faith a little child would have.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
Welcome brother or sister in Christ!  This is just the start of the journey, we are called to live in this world but not be of this world.  Begin studying God’s word (the Bible) daily to give you the strength and wisdom to live this calling out.  There are many sites like this that can help you as well.

Another unbelievable , shocking in the blatancy, of an Egyptian Official refusing to answer any questions as long as an Israeli Journalist is present.

How could the world ever believe peace could be achieved through talking, when they won’t even talk?

The host cuts to the Egyptian official around the 2:22 minute mark.

Zechariah 12:3 is in strong effect and the dark clouds they mention is the Psalm 83 War looming over the region.

Powerful deception / delusion is upon the world…


Brotherhood-Affiliated Egyptian Official Has Antisemitic Outburst on Live TV After Learning an Israeli Is on the Program

Ever since the so-called Arab Spring first had its inception, the amount of apologias for the Muslim Brotherhood and other organizations involved in that supposedly enlightened and revolutionary event reached something of a critical mass. Yet despite being a critical mass, it quite obviously was not analyzed critically. In fact, now that Egypt has begun its path towards a new state unencumbered by the remnants of the previous Mubarak regime, Westerners are seeing more and more cause for concern, especially where the Muslim Brotherhood’s virulent antisemitism is concerned.

Nevertheless, until now, no Muslim Brotherhood operative had actually outed himself as an outright antisemite on a Western television show. In that respect, Nader Amram, of Egypt‘s Peace and Freedom Party’s foreign relation’s committee, is truly a trailblazer. The Weekly Standard reports:

News channel France 24 hosted a panel Monday night to discuss Egypt’s first civilian president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi. One of the guests on the panel, via satellite from Cairo, was Nader Amram, a member of the Freedom & Justice Party’s foreign relations committee. (The Freedom & Justice Party (FJP) is the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party.)

Muslim Brotherhood Operative Nader Amram Refuses to Debate Israeli Journalist on Live TV

Nader Amram

When Amram learned that an Israeli journalist was also included on the panel, he protested that he had not been informed beforehand that he would have to appear with an Israeli. He then launched into a mini-diatribe about how Israel is the real problem in the Middle East and refused to discuss matters further with the Israeli.

More prophecy is closing in on fulfillment.  Each day we see more of the world turning on Israel.  I believe it will climax at the UN meetings this month, when the Palestinians petition for statehood.

God was very clear on where we should stand!

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth The spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12:1-3)

I am afraid the United States as a nation has joined the crowd.

We as Christians must continue to voice our support!

Yet another bible prophecy, nearing fulfillment…

The Jerusalem Obsession

A perhaps not-so-shocking, but certainly attention-getting, news item points to the ugly head of anti-Semitism arising in not-so-jolly old England these days. The stark growth of Israel and Jew-hating is front and center in the person of the kin of a prominent British leader you will recognize.

Laura Booth, sister-in-law of Quartet envoy Tony Blair, has called on “Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt liberate Al-Quds [Jerusalem].” The former British prime minister’s family member has previously sailed illegally to Gaza on a flotilla boat…During last week’s demonstration, Booth went on another rant against Israel. “We say here today to you, Israel , we see your crimes and we loathe your crimes. And to us your nation does not exist, because it is a criminal injustice against humanity. We want to see Lebanon , Jordan and Egypt go to the borders and stop this now. Liberate Al Quds! March to Al Quds!” (“Blair’s Sister-in-Law Incites Muslims to ‘Liberate’ Jerusalem,” http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/147264#.TlukeV3h98F)

Current issues and events that look to be harbingers of the biblically prophesied apocalypse bombard this generation of earth’s inhabitants. Jesus’ Olivet Discourse prophecies, foretelling things to come in the time of “great tribulation,” seem to leap from news reports that are becoming so routine that they no longer shock. No signal is more prophetically significant than present circumstances involving the city where Jesus was crucified nearly twenty centuries ago.
