(In times of trouble ... Trust in the Lord, draw near to Him, earnestly pray for His guidance and direction, and seek His Will in your life.)
THE BIBLE Warns the darkest days of Earth's History are yet future.
Here the Apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) teaches us what Biblical love is . . .
"But the fruit of the SPIRIT is LOVE:
Against such there is no law.
And those who are Christ's (Messiah's) have crucified the flesh
with its passions and desires.
If we live in the Spirit,
let us also walk in the Spirit.
Let us NOT become conceited,
provoking one another,
envying one another." (The Bible commands believing Christians to strive in reflecting this "love" ... it is not a "feeling")
--WND (WARNING Signs of the "Apocalypse": We will know when we are close) DO NOT take these "rumors of war" between Iran and Israel lightly. For the Bible warns sometime before or during this coming prophetic war the door of escape will slam close and then a terrible hammer will fall upon the land of Israel (which God calls the center of the world) which will create a deadly series of waves of destruction which will circle and engulf the globe all the way until the very end and the final Battle of Armageddon ... this coming war will help trigger the events which will ultimately devastate all nations of the World ... (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and ARMAGEDDON ...)
THESE months and years of headlines reflecting the growing hostilities between Israel and Iran (with Russia and allies) are God's global "air raid" sirens blaring ... these headlines are His warning to Israel and to ALL Mankind to take shelter in the "Word of God" (Messiah ... Jesus Christ in English ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) through repentance and trust in Him in order to "escape all these things that will come to pass." (Prophecies: The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... Please don't be "left behind")
--Debkafile (Prophecies: WARS and RUMORS of war) (Prophecies: RUSSIA, IRAN, and allies will go to war ... 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 ... (Prophecies: The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... Please don't be "left behind")
--Drudge/Washington Post (Prophecies: RUSSIA, IRAN, and allies will go to war ... and will invade ISRAEL)
--Russia News (Prophecies: RUSSIA, IRAN, and allies will go to war ... and will invade ISRAEL) Russia and China are providing Iran with advanced weapons and technology and are using Iran as their "proxy" to wage war ...
--Middle-East Newsline (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) (It's because Iran's military is now an extension of Russia and China's militaries and advanced weaponry ...)
--Debkafile (Prophecies: The US will be "NEUTRALIZED" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) Obama's Defense Department earlier publicly "outed" and identified the Navy SEAL team which led the operation against bin-Laden ... they were later killed and eliminated by the enemy.

IA Spies Caught In Iran and Lebanon ... US Fears More Than A Dozen May Be Executed
aptured CIA Operatives Will "Vanish"... Iran's Hizbullah "Will Take You And Do Terrible Things To You"
--WND (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) Yet our same Democrat Party Leaders who immediately sent captured spies back to Russia (to be welcomed home as heroes) ... and slanderously accuse our own military of "brutality" for simply scaring (well-fed and well-treated) prisoners ... always remain strangely silent as our people are tortured, mutilated, beheaded, and dragged through streets. If you simply ignore what they say but carefully watch what they do, it should become clear whose side our Democrat Party Leaders are fighting for. (Bible prophecies: 'Generation of Armageddon'..."TRAITORS")
--Fox News (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.

God warns those who practice these things will NOT be going to Heaven . . .
"Now the works of the FLESH are evident, which are:
fornication, (sexual immorality ... sex outside of marriage)
idolatry, (placing any "passion" above God ... sports, music, Hollywood stars and gossip, exercise, etc. ...)
sorcery ... drugs, (occultish type things ... "pharmakeus".... drugs)
outbursts of wrath,
heresies, (following any teachings that oppose the Word of God ... as found in the Bible)
revelries, and the like;
of which I tell you beforehand,
just as I also told you in time past,
that those who practice such things
will NOT INHERIT the Kingdom of God."
(Galatians 5:19-21) (God's Promise ...) (Prophecies: The "RAPTURE"... Please don't be "left behind")
--WND/Joseph Farah (WARNING Signs of the "Apocalypse": We will know when we are close)
"A prudent man sees danger and hides himself; (prepares)
The simple go on and suffer for it."
(Proverbs 27:12) (First ... turn away from your sinful ways and place your trust in Jesus to save you from your sins)
"And do not fear those
who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
fear Him who is able to destroy
BOTH soul and body in Hell."
hristians Gunned Down In Nigeria "While Eyes Closed In Prayer"..."We Have No Weapons But Prayer"
"I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain
for the Word of God and for the testimony which they held.
And they cried with a loud voice, saying,
"How long, O Lord, holy and true,
until You judge and avenge our blood
on those who dwell on the Earth?"
Then a white robe was given to each of them;
and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer,
until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren,
who would be killed as they were, was completed."
(Revelation 6:9-11) (God's Promise ...)
--WND (Prophecies: The coming ANTICHRIST) (In the Socialist-Marxist-Soviet world God and Jesus are considered enemies ...)
--Drudge/NY Daily News (GOD'S LAW: HOMOSEXUALITY) (WARNING Signs of the "Apocalypse": We will know when we are close)
The Super Bowl once offered family-style entertainment ... but, now as we draw closer to "the time of the end," the Networks are offering those who reflect the darkness of this world, such as the "Rolling Stones" (whose songs include "Sympathy For The Devil") and "Prince" (who chose an unpronounceable symbol of darkness as his new "name") ... and now they lift up "Madonna" (who through her occultic Kabbalah practices has added the name "Esther" (a Biblical queen) to her blasphemous "Madonna" persona ...
ONE of Satan's titles in the Bible is "The Prince of the Power of the Air" ... "On-The-Air"... The Super Bowl reaches a vast global audience ... think of the Super Bowl half-time Star as their "priest" or "priestess"... and the lifestyle they live reflects the "god" they worship and the "religion" they promote ... the Super Bowl stage is their "pulpit"... and the underlying message of their songs and dance is the "sermon." This year Satan has been freely given around 15 minutes of prime Super Bowl "Air Time" to entice and destroy ...
"For we do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against principalities,
against spiritual hosts of wickedness
in the heavenly places." (These are "ranks" of Satan's angels and demons on Earth and in Heaven)
(Galatians 6:12)(From the Bible: Who is Satan?) (Prophecies: The coming ANTICHRIST)
BECAUSE your adversary (enemy) the Devil
walks about like a roaring lion,
seeking whom he may devour."
(1 Peter 5:8 ... also see Job 1:7-12) (Angels & Demons: The Names Of Satan In The Bible ... and What They Mean ... (Audio - Video)
“Choose this day whom you will serve . . . ”
Jesus (Yeshua) warns,
"He who is not with Me is against Me.”
(Matthew 12:30) (You must choose ... you are either for Him ... or against Him ... there is no "in between")
“And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD,
choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.”
(Joshua 24:15) (The Bible warns there are only two categories: The Children of God ... and the children of Satan.)
Each person on Earth must choose whom they will serve. The Bible says the choice is clear. Jesus (Yeshua) says we are either for Him or against Him. We are either His friend or His enemy. There is no in between. There is no neutral ground. To simply ignore the choice IS a choice. We are warned the final battle will be fought soon. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.” It is a spiritual battle. Those who serve Messiah (Christ) are behind “enemy lines” until He returns. Persevere. Pray for God’s help in understanding the Bible. This will help to guard against the many subtle attacks against our faith. Be cautious. “Read between the lines” and take a little time to consider those things which are now being offered to entertain us. Satan will use any tool and weapon he can to imitate, ridicule, or confuse the Word of God to weaken our belief. What Satan offers as substitutes to take our eyes and faith off of the Cross can be very pleasant to the eyes and ears. Hold fast in faith and in courage. Beware. Jesus says the world that hated Him will also hate those who follow Him. It will not be easy. He will return, as promised, in power and glory. Rewards are promised for all those who wait in faith ...
GOD promises Mankind (whom He created) that ALL who will RECEIVE (in faith) His loving offer and gracious gift of eternal life in Heaven by turning away from their sinful activities and by trusting (believing) in His Son (the Messiah of Israel... Jesus Christ in English ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) to save them from all their sins and from Hell through His excruciating death on the Cross (for our sins) and His Resurrection are "born-again" (with a new spirit) and are now counted as the "Children of GOD."(God's Promise ...)
GOD warns Mankind (whom He created) that ALL who REFUSE to sincerely (and lovingly) receive His Gift of eternal life in Heaven through His Son are counted as "Children of SATAN"... and will be cast into Hell ("the outer darkness" ... "the lake of fire" ... "where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth") along with Satan and his vast legions of demons. (The assurance of life in HEAVEN ... Jew and Gentile ... it's NOT too late!!!)
The Bible warns Sodom and Gomorrah were given as a warning and "EXAMPLE" for coming generations ...
"As Sodom and Gomorrah,
and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, ( 5 cities were destroyed including Sodom and Gomorrah)
having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, (homosexuality)
are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."
"And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
condemned them (Sodom and Gomorrah) to destruction,
making them an example
to those who afterward would live ungodly ..."
In Ezekiel (written a thousand years after Sodom and Gomorrah were judged and destroyed) God explains why ... (and remember, to God "a thousand years is as one day"... Psalm 90:4 ... 2 Peter 3:8). God warns open homosexuality is a visual symptom of a people (or nation, or world) who are filled with "arrogance" and sinful "pride" ("Nobody ... not even God ... is going to tell me what to do!") ...
"This was the sin (iniquity) of your sister Sodom:
She (Sodom) and her daughter (Gomorrah) had pride, ("God is not going to tell me what to do!")
fullness of food,
and abundance of idleness; (sounds a lot like our generation)
neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy,
and they were arrogant (haughty) ... ("I don't care what God says in the Bible!"... "I'll do what feels right to me!")
Therefore, I (God) took them away as I saw fit." (He destroyed ('cleansed') them with fire ...)
In these verses, God links open homosexuality in a society to sinful "pride" and "arrogance"... the sin of Satan. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed ('cleansed' with fire) because they were filled with pride and arrogance while flaunting their sexual immorality and their homosexuality openly before God. They mocked God and they had no fear of God. They were also found guilty of having "fullness of food" without acknowledging God who provided it, and having "an abundance of idleness" in the land (basically they ate, drank, watched TV, and allowed their "Gay Pride" parades) ... the people had become so de-sensitized to sin they even stood by as their homosexuals tried to 'gang-rape' the two men/angels God sent to warn Lot ... while their worthless 'reverends', priests, rabbis, and ministers (just like Satan in the Garden) were seductively assuring the people in the pews that God's Word and God's Law did NOT really mean what it said and did NOT really apply to them and they could continue to do whatever felt good or right "in their own eyes," even when in direct disobedience to God's Word and God's Law ...
All of this reflected their lack of belief and their arrogant and rebellious attitudes toward God and His Word. Sin meant nothing to them ... and there was no fear of God. Would these charges convict any people or nation(s) you know today? God's judgment against Sodom was was given as a warning! The Bible warns the coming "Apocalypse" will be like the judgment against Sodom (only much worse), and this time it will be global!
Our time is short. God is pleading with us to stop (repent of) our sinful ways and return to Him before it's too late. With open arms and with tears of joy He will welcome any and all who willingly return to Him through the One He sent forth to save us from our sins (and from Hell) ... Jesus (Yeshua) ... the promised Messiah. And, as with Lot (and as with Enoch before the Flood when God 'cleansed' the Earth with water), God promises to remove ('Rapture') all those who will sincerely return to Him in faith before the coming "Apocalypse," which the Bible also calls "the Great Tribulation," "the Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble," "the Day of the Lord," the "Time of the End," and the "Day of (God's) Wrath" ... (Prophecies: The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... don't be "left behind")
Here the Apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) teaches us what REAL Biblical love is . . .
" And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned,
but have not love,
it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long (is patient)
and is kind;
love does not envy;
love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
love does not behave rudely,
does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
thinks no evil;
does not rejoice in sin (iniquity),
but rejoices in the truth;
love bears all things,
believes all things, (found in God's Word ... the Bible)
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails.
But whether there are prophecies, they will fail;
whether there are tongues, they will cease;
whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
But when that which is perfect has come, (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)
then that which is in part will be done away.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child;
but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly,
but then (after these earthly bodies die) face to face.
Now I know in part,
but then I shall know just as I also am known.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
but the greatest of these is LOVE."
(1 Corinthians 13:1-13) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)

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 ...

(Prophecies ... KNOWLEDGE AND TRAVEL will increase around "the time of the end")
Daily Bible Reading for the Week ...
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 … it’s God’s 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
