Weekly News Update
To Readers: If your e-mail comes through 'unstyled' with characters like "%$#* in the headlines or links, go to:
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)

"Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
and do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people (Israel),
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
They have said,
'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.'"
--Debkafile (Prophecies...Israel after becoming a nation) Yet, the Bible warns Israel will be standing alone (with God) in the coming Day of Trouble ...
"Because, even because
they have seduced My (God's) people, (Israel)
and there was no peace ..."
"For they have healed the hurt
of the daughter of My people (Israel) slightly,
saying, 'Peace, Peace';
when there IS NO PEACE!"
--Debkafile (Prophecies...Israel and Jerusalem after becoming a nation) For more on the Arab "Right of Return" see the article below ...
--American Thinker/Rachel Neuwirth (Prophecies...Israel after becoming a nation) This article is important to read because it lays out the facts of history rather than the false, deceptive, and purposely misleading "reports" by most of our major news outlets on this (and many other) important issues ... and it also shows the extreme difficulties the children of Israel have in presenting their side of key issues such as this. It comes as no surprise to learn that Islamic Arab groups and nations such as Saudi Arabia (who have a rabid and inflexible hatred against Israel) are major investors and stockholders in large and internationally watched news outlets such as the Associated Press, Time-Warner, and CNN. As noted earlier this week, our news media is controlled by a relatively small handful of people who dictate who and what will be perceived as good ... and who and what will be perceived as evil ...
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness ..."
(Isaiah 5:20) ("Woe" is a terrible, terrible, curse ...)
This next headline is yet another example of the world news being used to falsely accuse Israel . . .
--Ynet (Israel) (Bible Warning ...'Gaza shall be forsaken") (Prophecies...Israel and Jerusalem after becoming a nation) (Prophecies ... The coming Rapture) Study your Bible ... that land he now calls "Arab" is Israel's Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria ... God's judgment against the US draws near as our government turns its back on God and Israel ... Israel's judgment draws near as its government turns its back on the children of Israel who live in Judah (Gaza, Hebron, and Bethlehem) ... and the world's judgment draws near as it now prepares to come against nation Israel. The Bible warns "at the time of the end" all nations would turn against one nation ... Israel (Zechariah 14:2 ... Revelation 16:12-16 ... Joel 3:2). All nations against one nation sounds absurd ... it is absurd ... not all nations turned against Nazi Germany, not all nations turned against Saddam's Iraq, and not all nations have turned against the murderous regimes of Zimbabwe, Sudan, Russia, China, Cuba, or Iran. Yet, this ancient book, the Bible, which was in mass circulation for many, many years before 1948 (when Israel once again became a nation exactly when the Bible prophesied it would) stated clearly that God would one day bring Israel back into Her Land as a nation and then all the nations of the world would turn against her and try to wipe her off the map. When the US first turned against Israel on Gaza, the first stage of this 'absurd' prophecy was fulfilled ... not one nation on Earth supported Israel's right to her land (in Judah - Gaza). Now, for many, the idea that all the nations of the world will one day go to war against this tiny nation of Israel sounds absurd ... or that one day in the future, this tiny nation of Israel will be the sole 'Superpower' that will rule the world under her King and Messiah, who stepped forth 'from old, from everlasting' and was born of a virgin in Bethlehem, the city of King David, exactly as the ancient prophecies said He would (Micah 5:2). This same Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah, our God who stepped forth 'from old, from everlasting' and put on 'the likeness of Man,' and who freely offers eternal life in His Kingdom of Heaven to all who will believe and trust in Him, warns all men and women of this world, "You are either with me or against me" ... there is no in between ... and if you are against Israel you are against God and Messiah of Israel ... and He is our Hope ... our only Hope ... through the coming days.
--Debkafile (Big troubles lie ahead as our nation now takes an official stand to divide the Land of Israel ...)
"No not be deceived,
God is not mocked;
for whatever a man (or nation) sows,
that he will also reap."
Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah clearly warns ...
"If a kingdom (nation) is divided against itself,
that kingdom (nation) cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself,
that house cannot stand."
Mark 3:24-25) (Look at the deep divisions that have formed within our land since we allowed our leaders to "ban" God ...)
Prophecy concerning the coming "Apocalypse" and Battle of Armageddon ...
"I (God) will also gather ALL nations,
And bring them down
to the Valley of Jehoshaphat (just outside Jerusalem);
And I (God) will enter into judgment with them there
On account of MY people, MY heritage ISRAEL,
Whom they (the nations) have scattered among the nations;
THEY HAVE ALSO DIVIDED UP MY LAND."
--WND/AP (Prophecies...A coming "peace" plan will be enforced upon Israel and will change the world ... forever!) The Bible warns a coming peace plan (covenant) will one day be enforced upon Israel ... the Bible warns this event will trigger the last 7 years known as the "Apocalypse"... exactly 3 1/2 years (lunar) after this treaty is enforced a coming world leader (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist) who will enforce this coming peace plan upon Israel will stand in a new Jewish Temple ... and we are told this event will trigger the last 3 1/2 years of the prophetic 7 year (one "week" of years) (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon) period of time during which God will pour out His "Wrath" on a "violent and morally corrupt" generation who mocks and opposes His Word ... and after which God will fulfill all of His prophetic Covenants with nation Israel under the reign of Her Messiah ... Jesus Christ, the Messiah of Israel ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew ... who, from Jerusalem, will reign over Israel and all nations of the world while sitting upon His Throne ... the Throne of King David..
Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah's Genealogy (which was never disputed or even questioned by the Jewish priests who kept all of the genealogies in the Temple in His day) ... is also why Mary and Joseph had to go to Bethlehem (under Caesar's orders) at the time of His birth, because both were born in the line of King David ... and Bethlehem (who Olmert and Bush now want to give away to the enemies of Israel) is the city where King David is from ...
Here, Matthew takes Jesus-Yeshua's genealogy from Abraham while Luke takes His genealogy (through Mary) all the way from Adam ...
"The book of the genealogy of Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus Christ)
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations,

"For I (God) will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem,
(This is remarkable...since we are now seeing all nations turning against Israel.)
the City (Jerusalem) shall be taken,
the houses rifled,
and the women ravished (brutally raped).
Half of the city (Jerusalem) shall go into captivity,
but the remnant of the (Jewish) people
shall not be cut off from the city."
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophecies describing the 'Generation of Armageddon') (Democrat leaders in the US enjoy the same "protection"...)
The Bible goes into great detail describing the 'character' of the generation at the time of the coming "Apocalypse" . . .
"But know this,
that in the last days perilous (savage, fierce) times will come,
for men (mankind ... men and women) will be
lovers of themselves,
lovers of money,
proud, (Pride: "Nobody is going to tell me what to do" ... "I don't care what God says in the Bible")
blasphemers (mocking God and Jesus-Yeshua),
disobedient to parents,
despisers of good, ("calling evil good and good evil")
lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness (professing some belief in a "god"... maybe even going to church or synagogue)
but denying its power ... " (God's power to heal, protect, to save (from Hell) ... to judge, and to condemn)
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
--Drudge/London Times Online (Prophecies describing the 'Generation of Armageddon') (Prophecies ... Lying and deceiving "In the last days")
"But know this,
that in the last days perilous times will come . . . (we are now in those "perilous times")
Evil men and impostors (imposters who profess to be Christian or Jew)
will grow worse and worse,
and being deceived."
(2 Timothy 3:1, 13)
(A democratically elected president or politician is a reflection or "mirror" of those who elected him and keep him in office ...)
The "Mark" of the Beast (the coming Antichrist) . . .
"He (the coming Antichrist) causes all,
both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave,
to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark,
or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
"Then a third angel followed them,
saying in a loud voice,
"If anyone worships the Beast (the coming Antichrist ... a coming world leader) and his image
and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,
he himself shall also drink the wine of the wrath of God,
which is poured out full strength in the cup of His indignation.
He (who takes the mark) shall be tormented with fire and brimstone
in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever,
and they have no rest day or night,
who worship the Beast and his image,
and whoever receives the mark of his name."
"Then I heard a loud voice from the Temple (in Heaven) saying to the seven angels,
'Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God upon the Earth.'
So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the Earth,
and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men (mankind ... men and women)
who had the mark of the Beast and those who worshiped his image."
This prophecy is very crucial for those who have not accepted Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) as their Lord and will be alive when this law is enacted and enforced. This "mark" may be some kind of tatoo or implanted microchip with all of your personal, credit card, and banking information, we really donít know right now. It will not be easy to refuse this mark, whatever it is, for many of you will have families and children who will need to be fed. But, please be warned ... by taking this mark, you will have sealed your eternal fate in Hell ... forever! In Godís eyes it identifies you (or whoever takes this "mark") with the Antichrist. There will be no turning back for any who take the "mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name." The utter darkness, loneliness, and torments of Hell will be their fate. Blessings are promised in Heaven to all those who will refuse to take the "mark" and refuse to bow down to this coming world leader . . . and die in their faith for doing so. The Lord will take the sting out of death. (The most important prophecies ... Heaven or Hell ... the final separation)

"Here is wisdom.
Let him who has understanding
calculate the number of the Beast (the coming Antichrist),
for it is the number of a man:
His number is 666."

"For I am God, and there is no other.
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) commands all those who will follow Him to "watch" and be ready ...
"Take heed (to the prophetic warnings) ...
watch (what is going on) ...
and pray (see below);
for you do not know when the time is (the coming Rapture).
It is like a man going to a far country,
who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work,
and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.
for you do not know when the master of the house is coming --
in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning --
lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.
And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!"
"When you see these things,
know that it is near - -
at the door!"
"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.
It may be that you
will be hidden
in the day of the LORD'S anger."
and pray always
that you may be
counted worthy to escape
all these things
that will come to pass . . ." (The Bible promises all who wait in faith are not "appointed" to the coming time of "Tribulation")
"When you see these things happening,
know that it (the 'Apocalypse') is near -- at the doors!
Assuredly, I say to you,
this generation will by no means pass away
till all these things take place."
... for He promises to protect and shelter all those who are found waiting in faith from the coming 'time of trouble.'
