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)
NOTE: Today, the 17th day of Nisan (Jewish calendar), is the anniversary of the Resurrection of our Lord ... and the Jewish feast of "First Fruits" which was a "foreshadowing" of the "First fruits of the Resurrection" on which Jesus-Yeshua was resurrected (on the very day), will fall on Sunday (April 27) this week. This is the true "Easter" (a non-Biblical term) we should celebrate ...
So, all believing followers of Messiah should rejoice with thanksgiving all week (and especially on Sunday ... the "1st day" of the week) as we remember the awesome gift, the hope, and the promise all embodied in our Lord and Savior (who came to save us from or sins and from Hell) through the power of His Resurrection . . .
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew),
who according to His abundant mercy
has begotten us again (born again) to a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) from the dead ..."
(1 Peter 1:3)
Top Stories . . .
(Click on the headline for the full news story ... Click on the blue link for the Bible prophecy)
The Bible warns a generation would rise soon after Israel would once again become a nation (after 2500 years) ... a generation the Bible warns would be marked by its moral depravity and violence ... a generation the Bible warns will drag the world down into the darkness and terrors of the coming "Apocalypse" and Armageddon . . .
--WND/Yale Daily News (Bible Warnings: Homosexuality and Abortion) (Prophecies: Generation of Armageddon will be morally "corrupt") This is another reflection of a sick society. Not since the deepest depravity of the Roman Empire has a nation sunk into such a deep spiritual abyss ... she is a product of our state-run schools and those churches and synagogues who no longer teach what the Bible warn about sin or the terrible reality of Hell ... (The most important Bible prophecies ... Heaven or Hell ... it's not too late!)
--WND (Bible Warnings: Homosexuality and Abortion) (Prophecies: Generation of Armageddon will be morally "corrupt") Not long ago we had a nation who allowed parents to approve and control their children's local school curriculum. Today, the (Democrat Party controlled) government educational system has wrested control over our schools and our kids. Not long ago, school superintendents and teachers would have been fired and run out of town (or arrested) for trying to indoctrinate our children into the homosexual lifestyle ...
--Drudge/NBC 10 (Prophecies ... Messiah (Christ) and Christians will be hated) (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist) We find in the Bible that God will raise up evil nations to judge those nations who have turned their backs on Him ... please pray our nation and our leaders will turn away from our spiritual slide into darkness and return to God and God's Word before it's too late.
"Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam,
(the first person "raptured" in the Bible)
also prophesied about these men, saying,
‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands (millions) of His saints,
to execute judgment on all,
to convict all who are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way,
and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners
have spoken against Him.’"
--WND/Ann Coulter (They force abortion and homosexuality upon us and our children ... their "anti-war" wing spits on and mocks our soldiers (who should be receiving all the benefits now being given freely to the millions of non-citizens) ... they call for state-enforced atheism and silencing Christians who simply believe in the Bible ... they are killing our middle-class with a myriad of burdensome taxes and regulations ... they reward massive (and irreversible) illegal immigration to secure their votes and power ... and all this while they woo, seduce, and deceive many with their false promises of "free" health-care for all, which will place an unbearable and impossible burden of new taxes upon the working-class (our increased taxes will end up exceeding what we currently pay for regular health insurance) while degrading our health-care system down to a third-world level ... don't believe what they say ... but watch what they do! And most of the top Republicans today are not any better.)
--Mark Steyn/Mel "Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition"... It was the rural, hard-working folks who love God and believe in their right to bear arms who (through the grace and power of God) made this country strong and respected around the world ... while it is the venomous, puffed-up losers like Obama, Clinton, Sharpton, and Kennedy who are now dividing and powerfully dragging this nation down into the dark abyss of their Godless hopelessness and defeat ... yet, if you peek at the end of the Book (the Bible) you will find that although the ungodly, puffed-up losers will continue to grow stronger worldwide and will win this current battle ... it is all those simple people who love God and cling to their faith (even through the opposition and ridicule of this world) who will WIN THE WAR ... FOREVER!!! (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture") (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return) (The most important Bible prophecies ... Heaven or Hell ... it's not too late!)

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.)
--Alpha News Daily (Finding Hope and Comfort in Times of Trouble ...) (God's Promise ...)
--Alpha News Daily (Read earlier "Weekly News Updates" from Alpha News Daily)
Today, (Nisan 17 - Jewish Calendar) is the anniversary of Jesus (Yeshua) as the "first fruits" of the Resurrection ....
"But he (the angel) said to them,
'Do not be alarmed.
You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.
He is risen! He is not here.
See the place where they laid Him."
"He is not here, but is risen!
Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee ... "
"After that (His resurrection)
He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once,
of whom the greater part remain to the present,
but some have fallen asleep."
(1 Corinthians 15:6)
Mark and Luke and Paul (Rabbi Shaul) (plus at least 500 witnesses in Israel) witnessed and testified to the Resurrection ...
"At the mouth of two witnesses,
or at the mouth of three witnesses,
shall the matter be established."
"That in the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word may be established."
(Matthew 18:16 ... 2 Corinthians 13:1)
NOTE: The "Top Stories" headlines we just read above show us how far our nation has turned away from God. In the Bible we find God will raise up evil nations to judge those nations who have turned away from Him and His Word ...
--Pravda (Russia) (Prophecies...The US will be "neutralized" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) "Divide and Conquer"... Russia is starting to make its move ... it will flex its military muscles while continuing to weaken the dollar and expand its global oil and gas grab.
Look at a map. From Israel, there's nothing more "far north" than the North Pole and Russia ...
"Then you will come from your place out of the far north,
you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses,
a great company and a mighty army ..."
"And I (God) will turn you around and lead you on,
bringing you up from the far north,
and bring you against the mountains of Israel."
--Drudge/London Times (Prophecies ... Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war and will invade Israel)
--BBC News (Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) (Russia also kept Venezuela's Chavez in power after he had been removed ...)
--Pravda (Russia) (Prophecies...The US will be "neutralized" ... then Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel) (Our enemies grow strong ...)
--WND/London Telegraph (Prophecies of the 'Generation of Armageddon'... includes "traitors") Hollywood has been a powerful Marxist-Kremlin propaganda machine for many years ... they helped our enemies defeat our nation in Vietnam by dividing and demoralizing us ... and they will continue to paint our nation and military as evil and our enemies as good until we are under a repressive Marxist-Socialist government (just like Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela) where the loud and vicious (and atheist) few rule over the many. The lone man who tried to reveal and contain the spread of Stalinist-Marxism throughout Hollywood early on (Joe McCarthy) was crushed through their ability to use their power to destroy those who threaten them by "painting" and presenting their enemies as wicked and evil.
Even King David prophesied he Messiah would be quickly resurrected (raised from the dead) . . .
"For You will not leave my soul in Sheol (Hell),
Nor will You allow Your Holy One (the Messiah)
to see corruption (decompose)."
--DavidHocking.org (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophetic Warning Signs: 'Apocalypse' ... We will know when we are close)
--Debkafile "I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you"... (Genesis 12:3)
--WND/Joseph Farah (Prophecies of the 'Generation of Armageddon'... includes "traitors")
--WND/Ben Shapiro (Prophecies of the 'Generation of Armageddon'... includes "traitors") (Jimmy Carter gave the Panama Canal to China ...)
--Jerusalem Post "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.'"
This same (Democrat) Jimmy Carter stabbed our nation and our strong ally in the back when he gave Iran over to the Ayatollah (and to Russia) ... Iran was our strong ally until Jimmy Carter finished with them ... he also gave the very strategic Panama Canal to China.
--Drudge/AP (Prophecies ... Earthquakes in diverse places) (May be God's 5.2 magnitude warning to our leaders to stop embracing the enemies of Israel ...)
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) fulfilled over 200 specific prophecies of the Messiah ...
"These are the words which I (Jesus - Yeshua) spoke to you while I was still with you,
that all things (prophecies) must be fulfilled
which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets (the Tanakh ... Old Testament)
and the Psalms concerning Me."
And He opened their understanding,
that they might comprehend the Scriptures."
Then He (Jesus-Yeshua) said to them,
"Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary
for the Messiah (Christ) to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
and that repentance and remission of sins
should be preached in His Name to all nations,
beginning at Jerusalem."
--WND/Cheryl It should be noted it's amazing they even chose this good song ... and they did allow an un-censored version later.
--WND/Joseph Farah (Prophecies ... "In the last days evil men (and women) will wax worse and worse"... "deceiving (lying) and being deceived") As a side note, Clinton and the Democrats bombed and killed Christian Serbs to provide support for their Islamic enemies ...
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophecies...Israel and Jerusalem after becoming a nation)
The Bible warns one day . . .
"And there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven."
--Drudge/Census.gov (Prophecies ... The coming Antichrist) We are told no man will ever know the day or the hour of the coming "Rapture"... and, the coming "Antichrist" will probably not be revealed until after the "Rapture." So, don't let numbers or dates frighten or concern you ... however ... the Bible warns us that (even though many Jews from around the world will also come to know their Messiah) at the exact moment ("in the twinkling of an eye") when the last of a pre-determined number of Gentiles (non-Jews) from around the world will, humbly and in faith, return to God through the Messiah of Israel, the door of safety and escape will slam close ... and God will once more deal with the whole world through Israel (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon) ...
The "Rapture" will take place when the "FULLNESS of the Gentiles" is complete . . .
"For I do not desire, brethren,
that you should be ignorant of this mystery, (a "mystery" was something that had not yet been revealed in Scripture)
lest you should be wise in your own opinion,
that blindness in part has happened to Israel
until the FULLNESS of the Gentiles has come in."
(Romans 11:25) (Prophecies ... The coming "Rapture") ("In part"... many Jews will return to their Messiah before the "Rapture"...)
And then, Messiah (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) will "Return" when the "TIMES of the Gentiles are fulfilled" ...
"And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles
until the TIMES of the Gentiles are fulfilled." (Then Messiah will return to save Israel ... and to rule over the world.)
(Luke 21:21-24) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)
We are told Messiah's return to save Israel will happen exactly 7 years (360-day Jewish lunar years) after a "peace treaty" ("covenant") is enforced upon Israel by a coming world leader ... ("the prince who is to come"... Daniel 9:27) ... so, please don't take the current "peace process in the Middle-East" or "Roadmap to Peace" efforts too lightly ... (Prophecies ... A coming "peace plan" will change the world ... forever!!!)
"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.
It may be that you
will be hidden
in the day of the LORD'S anger."
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 . . ." (The Bible promises all who wait in faith are not "appointed" to the coming time of "Tribulation")
... for He promises to protect and shelter all those who are found waiting in faith from the coming 'time of trouble.'
