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)

Bible Prophecy: The Bible WARNS the coming "Falling Away" (when churches and church leaders "depart from the faith" and "will no longer endure sound doctrine") ... and the coming "Rapture" ... and the coming "Antichrist" ... and the coming "Apocalypse" ... are ALL closely linked ...
"Now brethren, (The Apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) is warning believing Christians ...)
concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
and our gathering together to Him ... (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")
Let no one deceive you by any means,
will not come unless the falling away comes first ..." (Prophecies... Churches and church leaders will "depart from the faith")
(churches and "Christians" turning away from and denying God's Word ... just like we are now seeing!)
and the man of sin (the coming Antichrist) is revealed, (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist ... a "counterfeit" Messiah)
the son of perdition (another title of the coming Antichrist)
who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped,
(beware ... a terrible and powerful "one-world" (ecumenical) religious system is coming)
so that he (the coming Antichrist)
sits as God in the Temple of God, (a new Jewish Temple WILL be built in Jerusalem)
showing himself that he is God.
(Jesus warns this event will trigger the 2nd half (3 1/2 years = 1260 days) of the "Apocalypse"... the "Great Tribulation")
Do you not remember that when I was still with you
I told you these things?" (Paul was only with them for 3 weeks ("Sabbaths") ... so, these warnings are important!)
(2 Thessalonians 2:1-10) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!) (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")
"Now the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) expressly says
that in latter times
some (churches and church leaders)
will depart from the faith,
giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons
(denying the truth of God's Word ... saying "all roads" lead to Heaven ... adding to or opposing what the Bible says)
speaking lies in hypocrisy, (like Satan they can appear knowledgeable and can appear nice ... yet can destroy our soul)
having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
forbidding to marry,
and commanding to abstain from foods . . ."
(1 Timothy 4:1-3)
"Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you
concerning our common salvation,
I found it necessary ('compelled') to write to you
exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith
which was once for all delivered to the saints.
For certain men (and women) have crept in unnoticed, (church leaders, ministers, priests, reverends, rabbis, pastors)
who long ago were marked out for this condemnation,
ungodly men (and women), who turn the grace of our God into lewdness . . .
(who poison it by twisting, ignoring, not believing, opposing, taking away or adding things to God’s Word in the Bible)
But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, (listen up Sabbath and Sunday school graduates ...)
that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
afterward destroyed all those who did not believe."
"For the time will come (which we are now seeing)
when they (many churches, church leaders, and those who call themselves Christians)
will no longer endure sound doctrine,
but according to their own desires,
they have itching ears,
they will heap up for themselves teachers (ministers, priests, reverends, rabbis, pastors)
(who will tell them only what they want to hear and not what the Bible teaches)
and they will turn their ears away from the truth,
and be turned aside to fables. (Such as the 'DaVinci Code' ...)
But you (simple, believing Christians) be watchful in all things,
do the work of an evangelist, (simply tell people the 'good news' that our sins can all be forgiven through Christ Jesus)
fulfill your ministry."
(2 Timothy 4:3-5) (God's Word is called 'living water' ... if someone mixes just 2% poison with 98% pure water we can die)
This is why it is now so difficult to find a church or synagogue who still teaches (and believes) the Bible . . .
“Behold, the days are coming,”
says the Lord GOD,
seeking the Word of the
This "famine" precedes a judgment upon a people and a world just as the receding water precedes a great and terrible tidal wave ...
"Were your acts of harlotry a small matter,
that you have slain My children,
(notice that God looks upon these little, slain babies as His!)
and offered them up to them (to other 'gods', idols)
by causing them to pass through the fire ..."
"By causing them (babies) to pass through the fire ..." Back then, unwanted babies were 'offered' to a false god 'Molech' (a god of lust and pleasure) by placing the baby onto the glowing red-hot arms of a small bronze statue which was placed in the fire. Do a study of Molech (an idol, false god) or passing babies 'through the fire' in the Bible and you will find God will judge a nation (and a world) for the killing of babies for convenience. God says a lot about this killing of unwanted babies ('passing sons and daughters through the fire') in the Bible. The technology we now use to kill these 'unwanted' babies is different, but the intent is exactly the same. Now, instead of calling them 'priests' we call them 'doctors,' and instead of burning the babies alive (passing them 'through the fire'), we cut them into little pieces while they're alive and call it 'abortion.' God sees it and it causes Him to cry out in agony and anger. This is one more reason why the coming Apocalypse is also called 'the Day of God's Wrath' which will come upon 'a morally corrupt and violent' generation. Also, the Bible warns us that 'not only those who do such things, but also all those who approve of those who do such things' will be held just as guilty. Please remember, our God is a forgiving God who is filled with grace and mercy, and even those who have done or approved of such things can still be washed clean and forgiven through the 'blood of the Lamb of God,' our Lord, the only One who can now save us from our sins, Jesus-Yeshua the promised Messiah.
Study the Bible ... Israel was sorely judged once before for "causing babies to pass through the fire"...
--WND (Prophecies: A generation of evil will rise ... the generation of Armageddon) (The book was published by MTV (television) Books ...)
"WOE to those who call evil good, and good evil;
who put darkness for light,
and light for darkness;"
(Isaiah 5:20) (Note: "Woe" is a terrible, terrible, curse or torment ...)
it is the last hour;
and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming,
even now many antichrists have come,
by which we know that it is the last hour."
(1 John 2:15-18)
In the Bible we find God will raise up evil nations to judge those who have turned against Him and His Word ...

The Bible describes the character of the generation who will drag the world down into the "Apocalypse" and Armageddon ...
"But KNOW this,
that in the last days
perilous (savage, fierce) times will come,
for men (mankind ... men and women)
lovers of themselves,
lovers of money,
proud, ("Puffed up" ... ""Nobody is going to tell me what to do!" ... "I don't care what God says!")
blasphemers (mocking God and Jesus),
disobedient to parents, (will not respect authority)
despisers of good,
lovers of pleasure ("Feeding the lusts of their eyes and their flesh" ... "If it feels good ... do it!")
rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness (professing a belief in some "god"... even going to a church or synagogue)
but denying its power ... " (God's power to comfort, heal, and save (from Hell) ... and judge and condemn)

Democrats hate our military ... no matter how pious they try to sound on the 4th of July, the Democrats are no friends of our boys in uniform ... our President has worked harder to help Iran and Russian than he has to protect and provide for our servicemen (and our allies like Israel).

- In 1985, under President Reagan, the United States Army had 27 divisions.

- In 1985 under Reagan, we had 37 Air Force wings.
- And under Clinton in 1999, our Air Force was reduced down to 13 wings.
- In 1985 under Reagan, we had 546 ships in the United States Navy.
- And under Clinton in 1999 (after the Clinton - Democrat Party dismemberment of our military) our Navy was down to 339 ships.

God warns of a world leader who will soon rise and grow in power. This coming world leader has been given around 33 different names and titles (which describe attributes) in the Bible (both in the Old and New Testaments) ... one of which is the "Antichrist." The Bible says this man will not be revealed until after the "Restrainer" (the Holy Spirit - including the body of believers alive at the time) is 'removed' (as a note, some believe it might also include the U.S. being 'removed' from its role as a restraining world power). This coming world leader (the Antichrist) will begin by exerting control over ten nations which were once part of the Roman Empire (Europe?) . . .
"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 or Europe)
And another shall rise after them;
he (the Antichrist) shall be different from the first ones,
and shall subdue three kings (or nations) . . ." (The end begins)
"Shall be different"... we don't know what nationality this man will be, or what might make him "different." 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 (Europe?) 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 believing Christians and will mock God’s Word, the world will embrace him and view him as a great leader and a man of peace. This man will be Satan’s counterfeit messiah. He will use deception and lies to "spin" his web of deceit and to conceal his true motives. Prophecies hint this man will not be fully revealed until after the Rapture, when the "Restrainer" is taken out of the way . . .
--Middle-East Newsline (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war and will attack and invade Israel)
--Russia News Agency (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war and will attack and invade Israel) (Abkhazia is the Georgian province Russia invaded and now occupies. Who actually won the 'Cold-War'? For at least two decades the Marxist-Socialist bumper-sticker has been "Use Democracy" to Destroy Democracy. Gorbachev tore down the Berlin Wall ... and then a generation of Soviet-Marxist indoctrinated East Germans flooded the West German voter rolls ... pro-US German parties and politicians were quickly defeated ... and Germany swiftly turned to Russia and away from the U.S. on all major global issues. As a note, the current German Prime-Minister Merkel grew up in East Germany ... and Russian leader Putin once commanded the powerful East German KGB (and he speaks fluent German.)
You will find "Gomer" listed in this prophecy as one of the nations who will join the Russia-Iran led coalition of nations who will one-day attack and invade Israel. The ancient Roman-Jewish historian Josephus tells us 'Gomer' is the land those (the Romans and Jews) called "Galatians" were from. The word 'Galatians' comes from 'Gaul' which we are told is the area around France and Germany. Encyclopedias will also specify 'Gomer' as the area around Germany and France. We know the Galatians from the Apostle Paul's letter to the Galatians (written around 55 AD) ... and we find from history an army of ancient Galatians left their homeland around Germany and France (Gaul) and (after a number of conquests and defeats) were brought over to the highlands of central Anatolia (now Turkey) as mercenaries around 300 BC (which is about 280 years after Ezekiel's prophecy was written), and there they formed their own 'colony' in an area the Jews and Romans called Galatia (which means "Gaul of the East") and lived (and thrived) until the days of the Apostle Paul. It will be interesting to watch as Iran (Persia), Russia (Magog), and Gomer (France and/or Germany) now all have soldiers and/or sailors deployed (or hidden like the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who have infiltrated Lebanon with theri "Hizbullah" forces) along the northern border and seacoast of Israel in Lebanon ... even though the numbers are now small, never before in the history of the world has this strange mix of armies and navies been deployed together along Israel's border.
--Pravda (Russia) (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war and will attack and invade Israel) (The next generation of weapons of mass destruction may be based on nano-technologies ... China is also very actively involved in developing this technology ... while our Democrat Party voted to ban any US development of such weapons and technologies.)
--Debkafile (Prophecies ... Wars and rumors of war)
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies ... Israel and Jerusalem after becoming a nation ... UPDATED)
--DavidHocking.org (Prophecies: "Gaza will be forsaken" ...) The Bible warns "at the time of the end" (around the time of the coming "Apocalypse," Armageddon and "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 Messiah (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ... Israel WINS ... and will rule over the nations in peace.
"For I am God,
and there is no other.
and there is NONE like Me,
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 . . . ACT (A.C.T.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) ...
- That He (lovingly and willingly) died for all of your sins on the Cross ...
- That He was buried ...
- That He was powerfully raised (Resurrected) from the dead the third day ...
- That He now lives ... seated on His throne in Heaven!!! (Notice He did all the work ... all you have to do is "believe")
- Turn back to God and His Word ... and turn away from sinful activities ("repent")
If you do these things … sincerely and in faith … the Bible promises you can have the complete assurance of eternal life in Heaven. The Bible tells us Jesus (Yeshua) did all the work for you when He died on the Cross, was buried, and was raised (resurrected) from the dead (as "firstfruits" of the coming Resurrection) ... through the awesome power of God. The Bible says you can’t add anything to it!!! 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"... God (Jesus) did ALL the work ... life in Heaven is offered as a free gift!!!
Yet, many don't realize God’s loving offer (see below) contains both a “blessing” and a “curse”...
"For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him (to trust in Jesus alone to save us from our sins and from Hell)
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 Christ)
IS CONDEMNED (to Hell) ALREADY" (The implications of this verse are staggering!)
"For by GRACE you have been saved (from your sins and from Hell)
through FAITH (in Jesus Christ),
and that not of yourselves;
it is the GIFT of God, ("Grace" is getting something we don’t deserve…we can't earn this gift of life in Heaven)
NOT of works, (we cannot enter Heaven through any “good deeds” we have done ... or think we have done.)
lest ANYONE should boast." (We are told it’s a gift from God … we just have to thankfully (and lovingly) receive it.)
