This weekly news update is being sent because the Bible tells us to know the prophecies and to "watch" for their fulfillment (which can only be done by learning and knowing what is going on around the world) ... yet, many churches and synagogues today ignore and deny Bible prophecy (which in itself is a major fulfillment of Bible prophecy) ...

 

 Now, a short Bible prophecy lesson to help show how close we are ...

 

  + Israel back in the Land as a nation   (this started the clock ticking ...)

  + Iran and allies threatening war against Israel

  + Russia rising ... and acting as a 'guard' for Iran

  + China armed with weapons capable of quickly destroying 1/3 of mankind

  + Nations of the ancient Roman Empire (Europe?) reuniting and rising in power

  + Teachings of false 'Prophets' leading many

  + A Generation 'morally corrupt' and 'filled with violence'  

     (The Bible uses the word 'corrupt' -  like smelly, rotting meat)

  + 'The falling away'... churches and synagogues no longer teaching or enduring sound doctrine

  + Israel and Jerusalem . . . trouble, troubles, and more trouble 

  + All nations turning against nation Israel . . .                 

  = The Generation of the ... Rapture ... the 'Apocalypse' ... Armageddon ... and Messiah's Return.

 

For the first time in history this prophetic 'equation' is nearly complete . . . and all in this generation!!! 

 

   

That Tiny Red 'Dot' is Israel ... God warns, 'Israel is His'...'Allah' and his vast armies (green) keep trying to prove Him wrong

The 'God of Israel' and the Bible . . .  or . . . 'Allah' and the Koran . . . The Bible Warns One Is True . . .  and One Is False

The coming Battle of Armageddon ('Hill of Megiddo')  . . .  Armageddon lies right in the center of that tiny Red 'Dot'

"I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you". . .  (Genesis 12:3)

--Ynet      (Prophecies:  "Gaza will be forsaken" ...)    (Gaza, Ashkelon, and Ashdod are all named in this Bible prophecy ...)

 

There may yet be "cease-fires" and political "compromises" applied to this festering sore ...  but don't be misled ... according to the Bible it will get worse.  In the book of Zephaniah, God warns Gaza would one day "be forsaken" (yes, that same Gaza (and Ashkelon and Ashdod) you have recently been watching on the world news).  Gaza is in the land which was given to the tribe of Judah (Joshua 15:1-12), and one of Messiah's titles is "The Lion of the Tribe of Judah" (Revelation 5:5 ... also see Genesis 49:9).  The Bible links the forsaking of Gaza to the coming "Apocalypse," which is also called 'The Day of Wrath' and the 'Day of the Lord's Anger." 

 

From these following passages (Zephaniah 2:1-7), God wants the children of Israel and all people on Earth to learn and know at least three (3) things . . .

 

1.  First, God has issued a TERRIBLE warning and a 'plea' to both the Children of Israel and to ALL people on Earth . . .

 

   "Gather yourselves together,

     Yes, gather together O undesirable nation   

     (the nation who would willingly try to give God's Land to her enemies)

     Before the decree is issued,

     Before the day passes like chaff,

     Before the Lord's fierce anger comes upon you,

     Before the Day of the Lord's anger comes upon you!    (The "Day of God's Wrath"... the coming "Apocalypse")

     Seek the Lord,

     ALL you meek of the Earth       (This warning is also for everybody on Earth!)

     who have upheld His justice 

     Seek righteousness,

     Seek humility.

     It may be that you will be hidden       (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

     In the Day of the Lord's anger."      (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)

 

2.  God wants all in Israel and on Earth to know what will help trigger His fierce and terrible anger:  GAZA!!   He warns, 'Gaza will be forsaken'... her inhabitants (the children of Israel) "uprooted" and "driven out" . . .

 

   "FOR GAZA SHALL BE FORSAKEN,

     And ASHKELON desolate;    (it will continue to grow worse ...)

     They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday,

     And Ekron shall be uprooted.    (They dug up all the Jewish graves during the forced evacuation of Gaza ...)

     Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast,

     The nation of the Cherethites!

     The Word of the Lord is against you,

     O Canaan, land of the Philistines (Palestinians):

   "I (God) will destroy you 

     So there shall be no inhabitant."  (All 'Palestinians' (Philistinians) and their allies should take note ... and leave.)

 

3.  God also wants all to know there is Hope.  He promises hope for all those who will wait in faith and trust in Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ... for one-day in the future, after the coming 'Apocalypse' ... the 'Day of God's Wrath' ... the terrible coming 'Day of the Lord' a remnant of the tribe of Judah will once again peacefully inhabit and prosper in that precious land God promised and gave to them ... and then, and only then, will there be 'peace on Earth.'   For at that time, our Messiah and God will restore all the Earth in peace and beauty ... as promised.

 

 "The seacoast shall be pastures,

   With shelters for shepherds and folds for flocks.

   The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah;

   They (the remnant of the house of Judah) shall feed there flocks there (coastlands of Gaza);

   In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening.

   The the Lord their God will intervene for them,

   And return their captives."

   (Zephaniah 2:1-7)          (Prophecies of  Messiah's Return)

 

Iran Recruits Somali Pirates to Replenish Hamas Arms Stocks In Gaza ...

--Debkafile     (Prophecies ... Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war and will invade Israel)   Iran has made their boasts against Israel over the past few years ... they cannot show weakness against Israel now ... they will need Russia's help (through diplomacy, intelligence, arms, and military support) to back their threats up.  Also, Iran-Russia still have their "dream team" in power in Israel (Olmert, Livni, Barak) and will either try to leverage and attack their weakness or will help them to maintain and retain power through this trouble.

Mystery "Roar" from Faraway Space Detected ...

--Drudge/Space.com     Another of Jesus Christ's (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) titles in the Bible is "The Lion of the tribe of Judah"... Revelation 5:5 ... also see Genesis 49:9.)  The Lord will NOT keep silent forever as Israel's leaders continue to reject God's Word and the nations continue to conspire against and viciously attack His (tiny) nation Israel and His chosen people the children of Israel ...

 

  "Therefore prophesy against them all these words, and say to them:

     'The LORD will ROAR from on high,    

     And utter His voice from His holy habitation;

     He will ROAR mightily against His fold. (Israel)

     He will give a shout, as those who tread the grapes,

     Against ALL the inhabitants of the Earth.     (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)

     A noise will come to the ends of the Earth --

     For the LORD has a controversy with the nations;

     He will plead His case with all flesh.

     He will give those who are wicked to the sword, says the LORD."  

     Thus says the LORD of armies (hosts):

     Behold, disaster shall go forth from nation to nation,

     And a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the farthest parts of the Earth.  

     And at that Day the slain of the LORD shall be from one end of the Earth  

     even to the other end of the Earth.         (Prophecies of  Messiah's Return)

     They shall NOT be lamented, or gathered, or buried;

     they shall become refuse on the ground."

     (Jeremiah 25:30-33)     (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)         (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

The coming Antichrist (a powerful world leader who will rise) ...

 

   "Then I stood on the sand of the sea.

     And I saw a Beast (the coming Antichrist)

     rising up out of the sea,

     having seven heads and ten horns,

     and on his horns ten crowns,

     (The book of Daniel explains these represent 10 nations of the Roman Empire he will rule)

     and on his heads a blasphemous name . . .

     The dragon (Satan) gave him his power,

     his throne, and great authority."

     (Revelation 13:1,2)         (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist)   

 

   "The ten horns are ten kings

     who shall arise from (out of) this kingdom     (the Roman Empire ... could be 10 nations out of the Europe Union)

     And another shall rise after them;

     he (the coming Antichrist) shall be different from the first ones,

     and shall subdue three kings (or nations) . . ."    (The end begins ...)

     (Daniel 7:24)          (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist)      (Prophecies ... 10 nations of the ancient Roman Empire will reunite and rise in great power)

 

"Shall be different"... we do not know what might make him "different," or what nationality this man will be.  In one verse he is described as 'the Assyrian' (an area around Syria and Iraq).  He may be considered an 'alien' by some.  This man will quickly consolidate power over 10 nations which were once part of the Roman Empire (maybe European) and then over the whole world through treaties and war.  God warns this man will be empowered by Satan.  He will lead the world into the terrors of the Apocalypse.  This coming world leader has been given many names and titles in the Bible, including one of the best known, yet most misleading - the 'Antichrist.'  Although he will be against faithful Christians and will mock Godís Word, the world will view him as a great leader ... and a man of peace.  This man will be Satanís counterfeit messiah.   He will use deception and lies to "spin" his web of deceit and to conceal his true motives.

There will be a great plague of snow and hail coming upon the Earth  ...

 

     "Have you entered the treasury of snow,

       Or have you seen the treasury of hail,  

       Which I (God) have reserved for the time of trouble,  

       For the Day of battle and war?"    (the coming "Apocalypse")

       (Job 38:22-23)    (Prophecies: The 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)       (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")   

 

     "And great hail from heaven fell upon men,   ("mankind"..  men and women)

       each hailstone about the weight of a talent. (A "talent" = 85 - 114 pounds!!)

       Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail,

       since that plague was exceedingly great."

       (Revelation 16:21)      (Interesting ... chronologically Job and the Revelation are the first and the last books written in the Bible ...)

 

And, there will be a great heat from the Sun which will scorch the people on Earth ...

 

     "Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the Sun,

       and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.  

       And men (mankind ... men and women) were scorched with great heat,

       and they blasphemed the Name of God who has power over these plagues;

       and they did not repent and give Him glory."

       (Revelation 16:8-9)      (Prophecies: The 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)       (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")   

 

And, there will be unimaginable and exceedingly great storms and hurricanes ...

 

     "And there will be signs in the Sun, in the Moon, and in the Stars;

       and on the Earth distress of nations, with perplexity,

       the sea and the waves roaring"

       (Luke 21:25)      (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)

Prophecies hint the coming "Antichrist" will not be fully revealed until after the Rapture . . .

   "For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work;

     only He who now restrains  (the Holy Spirit)

     will do so UNTIL He is taken out of the way.

     And then the Lawless One (Antichrist) will be revealed,

     whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth

     and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

     The coming of the Lawless One (Antichrist)

     is according to the working of Satan,

     with all power, signs (miracles), and lying wonders"

     (II Thessalonians 2:7-9)

 

The coming "Rapture" ...

 

   "Behold, I tell you a mystery:   (something that had not yet been revealed)

     We shall not all sleep,   (die a "bodily" death)

     but we shall all be changed

     in a moment,

     in the twinkling of an eye"

     (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)       (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)         (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

 

   "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.

     Then we who are alive and remain   (on Earth)

     shall be caught up    ("harpazo" ... "to seize, to pluck away, or to take by force"... translated from the Latin as "raptured")

     together with them in the clouds

     to meet the Lord in the air.

     And thus we shall always be with the Lord."

     (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

 

   "Then two men will be in the field:

     one will be taken and the other left.

     Two women will be grinding at the mill:

     one will be taken and the other left.

     Watch therefore, for you do not know

     what hour your Lord is coming."

     (Matthew 24:40-42)

 

   "But of that day and hour no one knows,

     no, not even the angels of Heaven,

     but My Father only."

     (Matthew 24:36)

 

   "Therefore you also be ready,

     for the Son of Man is coming

     at an hour you do not expect."

     (Luke 12:40)       (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)         (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

To put things into perspective ...

 

1 million seconds  =  approx. 12 days

1 billion seconds  =  approx. 31 years

1 trillion seconds  =  approx. 31,000 years

 

As a note:  Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) fulfilled over 200 Old Testament (Tanakh) prophecies which described the coming Messiah.  The odds of one person fulfilling just eight (8) of those 200 prophecies He fulfilled would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 (which is one in more than all of the people who have ever been born on Earth)..  If you translated that number into seconds ...

 

100,000,000,000,000,000 seconds  =  3,100,000,000,000 years

 

So, the odds of one person fulfilling just eight (8) of the more than 200 Bible prophecies Jesus Christ (Messiah) fulfilled would be the same as if the Bible had accurately predicted the exact second He would be born out of 3,100,000,000,000 years ... which is more years than the Earth has even existed!!!   So, don't ever feel embarrassed or ashamed to believe that Jesus (Yeshua), who was born in Bethlehem (City of King David), is the promised Messiah of Israel ... the Savior ... who saves us from all our sins and from Hell.        (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)         (Prophecies ...

The Lord's Offer . . .

 

   "For God so loved the world

     that He gave His only begotten Son,

     that whoever believes in Him (Jesus-Yeshua)  (means fully "trusts" in Him alone)

     should NOT perish (in Hell)

     but have everlasting life (in Heaven).

     For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,

     but that the world through Him might be saved (into Heaven).

     He who believes in Him is not condemned (to Hell);

     but he who does not believe (in Jesus-Yeshua)

     is condemned (to Hell) already"   (The implications of this verse are staggering!)

     (John 3:16-18)         (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)         (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

 

   "Do NOT be afraid,

     nor be dismayed (distressed),

     (Joshua 1:9)

 

   "Do NOT worry (or be anxious) about anything,

     but pray about everything . . .with thanksgiving"

     (Philippians 4:6)       (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")   

 

   "He (the Lord) will be with you,

     He will not leave you nor forsake you." 

     (Deuteronomy 31:8)

 

   "We know that ALL things work together for good,

     to those who love God" 

     (Romans 8:28)       (The Bible says ALL things work together for good ... only to those who love God)

 

   "For our citizenship is in Heaven,

     from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior,     (who saves us from our sins and from Hell)

     the Lord Jesus Christ"     (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew ... do you "eagerly" await His Return?)

"For I am God, and there is no other.
   I am God, and there is none like Me,
   Declaring the end from the beginning,
   and from ancient times
   things that are not yet done . . ."
   (Isaiah 46:9-10)

   know that it (the 'Apocalypse') is near  --  at the door!

   Assuredly, I say to you,

   this generation will by no means pass away

   till all these things take place."

   (Mark 13:29)

 

 "Before the decree is issued,

   before the day passes like chaff,

   before the LORD'S fierce anger comes upon you,

   before the day of the LORD'S anger comes upon you!

   Seek the LORD,

   all you meek of the Earth,

   who have upheld His justice.

   Seek righteousness, seek humility.

   It may be that you

   will be hidden

   in the day of the LORD'S anger."

   (Zephaniah 2:2-3)        (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")

 

Jesus (Yeshua) commands us to watch and be ready .....

 

"Watch therefore,

   and pray always

   that you may be counted worthy to escape

   all these things

   that will come to pass . . ."  

   (Luke 21:36)        (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)

 

... for He promises to protect and shelter all those who are found waiting in faith from the coming 'time of trouble.'
