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!!!

--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 believing 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)

This Week's News Headlines . . .
(What to do 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.)

--Focal Point Radio/Compass Bible Church (The most important Bible prophecies ... Heaven or Hell ... it's not too late!!!)
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) warns there will be strife between those who believe the Bible and those who don't ...
"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 (unbelieving) father,
a daughter against her (unbelieving) mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her (unbelieving) mother-in-law';
and a man's enemies will be those of his own household."
He goes on to warn we are to love Him and His Word (as found in the Bible) even more than parents, children, family, or friends who would try to turn us away from believing and obediently following God's Word ... for Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) offers us eternal life in Heaven ... while those who would try to turn us against Him and His Word (the Bible) can offer no hope, but only the terrible reality of eternal darkness, loneliness, and torment of Hell. As in the past, we are warned we will once again (soon) see a coming day (even in America) when family members will betray family members who are believing Christians to death. (Believing Christians are those who simply trust in and believe what the Bible (God's Word) says ... yet, are now scorned and derisively referred to as "fundamentalists.")
"Now brother will betray brother to death,
and a father his child;
and children will rise up against parents
and cause them to be put to death.
And you will be hated by all for My Name's sake.
But he who endures to the end shall be saved."

Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) explains ...
"For I did NOT come to call the righteous,
to repentance." (If we don't see ourselves as sinners who desperately need a Savior we will have no hope of life in Heaven)
--WND/AP (Prophecies ... Wars and rumors of war) Jesus (Yeshua) warns their will be NO PEACE on Earth until He returns ...
--Debkafile (Prophecies ... Wars and rumors of war)
"Savior." Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) gives us hope ...
"For I did NOT come to judge the world
but to save the world." (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!) (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture")
"If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved"!!! (From your sins and from Hell ... and welcomed with tears of joy into the Kingdom of Heaven).
"But He (Messiah) was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes (whip lashes) we are healed.
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity (sin) of us all."
"The next day John (the Baptist) saw Jesus-Yeshua coming toward him,
and said, "Behold!
The Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world!"
(John 1:29) (Our "Passover" Lamb ... who was lovingly sacrificed for our sins so we might live in Heaven ... forever!)
“Jesus said to her,
‘I am the Resurrection and the life (in Heaven).
He who believes (trusts) in Me,
though he may die (the first 'bodily' death),
he shall live (forever ... in Heaven).
And whoever lives and believes in Me
shall never die (the second death ... "Hell").
Do you believe this?’" (This is the question every man and woman must answer)
"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!)

"When you see these things happening,
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."
"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 .....
and pray always
that you may be counted worthy to escape
all these things
that will come to pass . . ."
... for He promises to protect and shelter all those who are found waiting in faith from the coming 'time of trouble.'
