THE BIBLE Warns the darkest days of Earth's History are yet future.
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) warns never in the history of Mankind has there ever been anything as terrible and deadly as the coming "Apocalypse"...
"For there will be Great Tribulation
such has not been
since the beginning of the world until this time
no, nor ever shall be.
And UNLESS those days were shortened
no flesh (living thing on Earth) would be saved"
--Ynet (GOD'S LAW: HOMOSEXUALITY) (Prophecies: The coming "Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble"... (the "Apocalypse") "Lawlessness"... they have no fear of God. The Bible warns God is now being patient while the good news ("gospel" in Greek) of Messiah (Jesus Christ) is being carried to all the Gentile nations ... then God says He will send Israel through a terrible fire one last time which will be worse than anything they have ever gone through ... AND ... since "the Nations" (Gentiles) have now been given God's Word with the warning to "Repent" (turn away from all sinful activities) and to place all their "faith and trust" in the Messiah of Israel to save them from all their sins and from Hell ... God will hold "the World" responsible as well. Jesus warns a small remnant of Israel will survive the coming "Day of God's Wrath" (and will receive all the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) while "the World" will be utterly devastated ... the time draws near.
"I (the Lord) have held My peace a LONG time,
I have been still and restrained Myself.
Now I will cry like a woman in labor . . .
I will lay waste to the mountains and hills"
"I will punish the world for its evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity ...
I will halt the arrogance of the proud."
"Thus says the LORD of hosts (armies):
BEHOLD, disaster shall go forth from nation to nation ...
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 . . ." (Nobody will escape God's wrath after the Rapture)
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies: RUSSIA, IRAN, TURKEY, and Allies will attack and will invade ISRAEL ...) The time draws near ... the Bible warns Iran (Persia), with Russia ('Magog'), and a coalition of allies (including Turkey and Sudan) will attack and will invade Israel. In Ezekiel 38-39 the Bible warns this coming war between Iran (Persia) and Israel will take place sometime after Israel has been re-gathered into Her land as a nation (which was fulfilled on May 14, 1948) ... this prophetic war has never yet taken place ... the only time in history Persia (Iran) has ever gone to war against Israel was to help Israel throw off the yoke of the Byzantine Empire around 614 AD. The Bible warns the US will NOT defend Israel. According to the Bible, Israel must stand alone ... with God. For when this coming war does finally start, the United States (for reasons yet unknown) will be unable or unwilling to help Israel defend herself. Although the Bible warns the invading armies will be ultimately destroyed by God, it will be a devastating war for both Israel and the whole world. Bible scholars are divided as to whether this coming war is part of the prophetic battle of Armageddon or will just precede the battle of Armageddon in order to prepare the path for the coming Antichrist (a coming 'world leader' who will enforce a 'peace plan' upon Israel). All people of the world should be sitting on the edge of their seats with white knuckles watching this terrible prophecy slowly start to unfold ... while those who call themselves Christians (followers ... both Jew and Gentile ... of Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah) are told to "examine" themselves in the Word and in faith to insure they are not just 'almost' Christians (Matthew 7:21-23) who are "lukewarm" in their faith in Jesus (Yeshua) and God's Word (Revelation 3:14-16) ... for Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah warns all to, "Watch, therefore, and pray always (not just sometimes), that you will be counted worthy (through His worthiness) to escape all these things (the terrible events of the coming 'Apocalypse') that will come to pass" ... (Luke 21:36) ... for the Bible promises believing Christians (faithful and sincere believers in Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) who are alive at that time and have endured in their faith in God's Word are not "appointed" to this coming time of "God's wrath" that will be "poured out" upon the whole world ... (1 Thessalonians 1:10 ... 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)
--Middle-East Newsline (Prophecies: RUSSIA, IRAN, TURKEY, and allies will go to war ... and will invade ISRAEL) Many people will simply yawn and ignore these Bible prophecies and these headlines ... yet, God does NOT fulfill His prophecies or prophetic warnings in secret, but so all the world can see. For many years a number of Bible prophecy teachers and scholars have been warning the one piece of the puzzle missing was for TURKEY (a NATO ally-nation) to turn toward Russia and Iran and against Israel (as this prophecy predicts.) The world has waited over 2,500 years to see the headlines we are now seeing. This prophetic war between Iran and Israel has never yet taken place ... and it is very much a part of the coming "Apocalypse" and Armageddon scenario. God has been warning and preparing this generation for this coming war for well over 10 years ... and the headlines concerning this coming war can now be found almost daily all around the world. God is trying to get our attention and to draw those who are His back to Him before it is too late. With open arms and with tears of joy God promises to welcome and to shelter and comfort ALL who will come to Him before these events take place (or before their earthly bodies die) ... yet, the Bible warns God will not mourn, nor have mercy, on those who reject and ignore and mock His Word and His warnings. (Prophecies: The coming "Rapture"... don't be "left behind")
--DavidHocking.org (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... THEN ... RUSSIA, IRAN, and ALLIES will invade Israel) "Neutralized" means the US will be UNWILLING or UNABLE to defend Israel after this coming war starts. "Neutralized" can mean Militarily, Politically, Economically, or any combination of the three. The Bible warns the US will NOT defend Israel when this coming war takes place. According to the Bible, Israel must stand alone ... with God. When Russia, Iran, Turkey, and their 'coalition' of nations attack and invade Israel, the U.S. will be unwilling or unable (or unwilling and unable) to help defend Her ...
--Debkafile (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) If you step back and look objectively at the News Headlines over the past years (concerning Defense, Economic, Domestic, and Foreign policies) you will find it appears Obama and the core Democrat Party Leaders have been acting as agents of a foreign power (Russia-China and their allies) while undermining (and even sabotaging) the vital interests of America, Israel, and our Allies. With Russia and Iran's "Dream Team" of Obama - Clinton - Panetta in office there will be more incidents which will put our nation (and Israel) at great risk.
--Debkafile (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... THEN ... RUSSIA, IRAN, and ALLIES will invade Israel) Obama - Clinton - Panetta and the Democrat Party are no friend of Israel ... and they are no friend of Christians ... they embrace (and take "crafty counsel" with) the enemies of Israel ... and with the enemies of Christ (Messiah). The time draws near ... please draw near to the Lord.
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies: Russia, IRAN, and Allies will invade ISRAEL) THE BIBLE sets aside a lot of space (two whole chapters) for this prophecy BECAUSE it will mark the beginning of the end ... BECAUSE it will set the forces behind Armageddon into motion. For over 10 years the World has watched this coming war slowly rising before us BECAUSE God wants all to be warned and to escape those things which will come during and after this coming war ...
GOD is pleading with ALL Mankind (both Jew and Gentile) to turn back to Him and turn away from all our sinful activities (including "drunkenness," gossip, lying, and complaining) AND to place ALL of our faith and trust in His Son (Jesus Christ in English ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) who was sent forth to "save sinners"... and to "wash us clean" of all our sins through His Blood which saves us from Hell (and from the coming "Apocalypse"). (Prophecies: The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... Please don't be "left behind")
--Drudge/Washington Times (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) (Prophecies: CHINA and allies will DESTROY 1/3 of Mankind)
--World Tribune (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) Obama and the Democrat Party's DEFENSE policies are based on Socialist (Marxist-Soviet) doctrines of weakening, crippling, and destroying America's national defense ... NOT strengthening it. Simply step back and watch ... every Democrat Party defense policy now strengthens Russia-Islam-China's ability to attack and destroy us ... and weakens our Military's ability to protect and defend us.
--Debkafile (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war)
--Fox News (Bible Prophecies: IRAQ - (Babylon)
--Drudge/Washington Post (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon ...) (Prophecies: The coming "RAPTURE"...)
The coming Battle of Armageddon ...
"Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl
on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up,
so that the way of the kings from the East (China and allies)
might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs
coming out of the mouth of the Dragon, (Satan)
out of the mouth of the Beast, (the Antichrist)
and out of the mouth of the False Prophet. (a Religious Ruler ... Revelation 13:11-12)
For they are spirits of demons,
performing signs, (miracles will be performed at this time)
which go out to the kings of the Earth
and of THE WHOLE WORLD,
to gather them to the battle of that great Day of God Almighty.
"Behold, I am coming as a thief. (the coming "Rapture")
Blessed is he who watches,
and keeps his garments,
lest he walk naked and they see his shame."
And they gathered them together (all the armies of the nations)
to the place called in Hebrew, ARMAGEDDON."
The weapons will be used. Much of the world will be destroyed. Cities will disappear. Armageddon means the "Hill of Megiddo." Megiddo is part of the Plain of Esdraelon which is located in central Israel. Napoleon came through there and declared it to be the finest battlefield in the world. The whole world will be drawn into this war over Israel and Jerusalem. No nation will be spared. The Bible warns there will be several deadly waves associated with this conflict, including: An attack from the "south," an attack from the "north," a massive Chinese led invasion of the Middle East from the "east", which will then be "joined" as the armies of the Antichrist march out of Europe and around the world to the place called "Armageddon." Jesus will return to engage this final battle Himself. He alone will destroy the enemies of Israel. We donít know the time between these wars/battles/events. We do know that God has set aside seven years to complete His plan with Israel, and this Age.
THE BIBLE Warns "Armageddon" Will Be Fought Over JERUSALEM ...
--AFP (France) (Prophecies ... ISRAEL and JERUSALEM (and GAZA) The Bible warns "at the time of the end" (around the time of the coming "Apocalypse" and Armageddon (also called the "Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble"- Jeremiah 30:7) ALL NATIONS (including the US) will unite (united nations?) and turn against Israel (Zechariah 14:1-2 ... Joel 3:1-2 ... Revelation 16:13-16) ... but, it is heart-wrenching to see it happening ... it is like watching the water receding from the beach just before a great and terrible tidal wave strikes. Remember ... Armageddon is in Israel. Also remember ... through the return of Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ... Israel WINS ... and will rule over the nations in peace.
in those days and at that time,
When I (God) bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, (sometime after 1948)
I will also gather ALL NATIONS,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; (just outside Jerusalem)
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of MY people,
My heritage ISRAEL,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also DIVIDED up MY Land." (Israel!)
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies ... ISRAEL and JERUSALEM)
--Pravda (Russia) "I (God) will BLESS those who bless you (Israel) and will CURSE those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3)
--Drudge/AFP "I (God) will BLESS those who bless you (Israel) and will CURSE those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3)
The coming Battle of Armageddon ...
"For I (God) will gather ALL NATIONS against JERUSALEM.
The city (Jerusalem) shall be taken,
the houses rifled,
and the women ravished (brutally raped).
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
but the remnant of the people
shall not be cut off from the city."
"Search from the book of the LORD, and read:
not ONE of these (prophecies) shall fail;
not ONE shall lack her mate.
For My mouth has commanded it,
and His Spirit has gathered them."
(Isaiah 34:16) (Prophecies: MESSIAH'S RETURN)
The Bible warns Messiah IS the "Word of God" which "became flesh and dwelt among us" ...
"In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
AND the Word WAS God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him,
and without Him nothing was made that was made ...
AND the Word became flesh
and dwelt among us,
and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
full of grace and truth."
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) warns ...
"Do NOT think that I came to bring peace on Earth.
I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
For I have come to set a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law"
(Matthew 10:34-35) (The Word of God will divide many ... this is how our faith is tested.)
The NAME by which Messiah is called is "The Word of God" (and the "sword" is His Word) ...
Then I saw Heaven opened,
a white horse! (The true Messiah ... not the "counterfeit" Antichrist ... see Revelation 6)
The One sitting on it is called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
His eyes are like a flame of fire,
and on His head are many diadems (crowns),
and He has a Name written that no one knows but Himself.
He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood,
and the Name by which He is called is The Word of God. (He IS the "Word of God" who became flesh ... John 1)
And the Armies of Heaven,
arrayed in fine linen, white and pure,
were following Him on white horses. (All who placed their faith in Him will return with Him ...)
From His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations,
and He will rule them with a rod of iron.
He will tread the winepress of the fury of the Wrath of God the Almighty.
On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written,
King of kings and Lord of lords. (Prophecies: MESSIAH'S RETURN)
Whoever DENIES the Word of God DENIES Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...
"Therefore whoever confesses Me before men,
him I will also confess before My Father who is in Heaven.
But whoever DENIES Me before men,
him I will also deny before My Father who is in Heaven." (We must place our faith and love in the Word of God ...)
--WND/AP (Prophecies: The ANTICHRIST) (Bible Prophecies: Description of the 'Generation of Armageddon') (Socialism = Atheism)
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophecies ... ISRAEL and JERUSALEM)
--Russia News Agency (Prophecies: The coming ANTICHRIST) This new law is very dangerous ... Obama forced Congress into including American Citizens in this new "hold without trial" law ... and Obama's "Homeland Defense" Director has made it very clear she believes American military-veterans and believing Christians are much higher priority "terror" risks than radical Islamics.
--WND (Prophecies: The coming ANTICHRIST) (This is a textbook Socialist (Marxist-Soviet) tactic ... and remember ... Socialists despise Bible believing Christians and always pass laws that will attempt to silence and eliminate them.) (Prophecies: Christians will be hated)
--Middle-East Newsline (Bible prophecies: 'Generation of Armageddon'..."TRAITORS")
--WND (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) (This war appears to be a Soviet-Marxist revolution which will threaten the US ...)

--AFP (France) (Prophecies: TEN Nations of the ROMAN EMPIRE will REUNITE and RISE in great power) (Prophecies: The ANTICHRIST) German Chancellor Angela Merkel served as Secretary of the Agitation and Propaganda Department of the Young Communists at Marx-Lenin University in East Berlin after growing up and prospering in East Germany under Soviet education and indoctrination ... and Russia's Vladimir Putin was once the powerful KGB Commander of East German operations (while he lived there) and he still speaks fluent German.
--Drudge/InfoWars (Prophecies: The coming ANTICHRIST)
The Bible warns there will be ...
- A coming Global Economy and Monetary System
- A coming Global Government
- A coming Global Leader (the coming Antichrist)
A coming global ("one-world") monetary system ...
"He (a coming world leader ... the "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, (The coming Antichrist)
or the number of his name."
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 tattoo, or implanted microchip with all of your 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 that will need to be fed. But, please be warned . . . by taking this mark, you will have sealed your eternal fate in Hell. In Godís eyes it identifies you with the Antichrist ... and Satan. 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 and their eternal destiny. Blessings are promised in Heaven to all those who refuse to take the "mark" and refuse to bow down to this coming world leader . . . and will die in their faith for doing so. The Lord will take the sting out of death.
--Drudge/ABC (Prophecies: DEADLY DISEASES will spread ...)
--BBC News (Prophecies: FAMINES ...) Most famines today are Man-made ... Socialists (aka "Leftists"-"Marxists"-"Communists") ... use famine as a "weapon" and a "tool" to destroy their enemies and to enforce "loyalty" over a people. Russia-bred Socialists created famines which have starved and killed millions, such as Stalin's despicable and terrible famine against Ukraine and in Somalia (where Russia controlled Islamic militants have blocked food being sent to the starving people), and a number of other nations where they want or wanted to gain control. Plus, since food is a basic necessity, State-issued and controlled "Food Stamps" is also a powerful way of maintaining loyalty to the Party (and a large and "loyal" voting bloc).
Weekly Bible Reading ...
--Alpha News Daily (Daily Bible Verses ... 2012)
Note: Many people today do not know whether or not they (or their loved ones) will go to Heaven. Many have not been adequately (or honestly) taught what the Bible actually says and teaches ...
For the ASSURANCE of Life in Heaven (and of having ALL of your sin and guilt completely removed) . . . A.C.T. NOW!!!
- Acknowledge you are a sinner ... and have sinned against God's Law
- Confess your sins to God
- Trust (believe) completely in Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...
- He (lovingly and willingly) died for all of your sins on the Cross ... and His innocent blood washes away ALL our sins
- He was buried ...
- He was raised (Resurrected) from the dead the third day ... and now waits to see if you are "with" Him or "against" Him
- Turn back to God ... and turn away from sinful activities ("repent") ... He will welcome you with tears of joy.
When you believe and trust in (and love) Jesus Christ as your "Savior" (who lovingly saves you from your sins and from Hell) ... and then turn away from your sinful ways and turn back to God ("repent"), you can have the complete peace and assurance in your heart that when you die, you will enter into His Kingdom of Heaven ... forever and ever Ö itís Godís Promise!!!
The ONLY thing God asks a NON-believer to do is to "believe"... Jesus (God) did ALL the work ... life in Heaven is offered as a GIFT!!!
Grace and Shalom
