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'

This Week's News Headlines . . .
(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.)
A Psalm of King David ...
"The Lord is my Shepherd . . ."
And Jesus graciously tells us ...
"I am the good Shepherd.
The good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep."
(John 10:11)(Prophecies of Messiah (Christ) from the ancient Jewish Prophets (Old Testament)
--WND (Prophecies: The coming Antichrist) In 1954 Democrat Lyndon Johnson (who later became president) sneaked in an amendment forbidding Christian pastors from discussing or exposing current politics (or politicians) that contradicted or opposed basic Biblical laws and principles (because a number of pastors in Johnson's home state of Texas were challenging his Socialist (aka Communist - Atheistic - Liberal) doctrines.
Prior to 1954 our nation allowed (and even expected) faithful Christian pastors to hold our politicians (and nation) accountable to basic Biblical laws and principles. But, ever since the "Johnson Law" was passed forbidding pastors ("shepherds") from discussing and exposing policies and politicians to the voters (the "flocks") in their churches (through threats of losing tax exemptions), most of the appointed "watchmen" in our churches across our nation have remained silent as they watched (and many even encouraged) Godless, ignorant, and dangerous men and women approach and enter in and turn our country away from "One nation under God" into "Another nation against God" while the flocks were sleeping.
Through the earnest prayers of our founders, God raised up a nation where our (earthly) King is "The Rule of Law" (framed by our Constitution and founded upon God's Law and God's Word.) Our President, Congress, and Supreme Court are to be separate and equal divisions of power under our "King" (The Rule of Law) ... and within our borders no single person or group of people was ever to be allowed "above," "outside," or "immune from" our Rule of Law (the "King" which God set above this nation.).
Our founders warned this form of government required a Godly people who feared God and trusted in God's Word. In God's eyes the elected leaders of a Constitutional Republic are simply mirrors reflecting the people of that nation.
God lifts up and raises leaders who reflect the Spiritual and moral condition of the "people" and the "prophets" (ministers, reverends, priests, rabbis, and preachers) of a nation. Because of this, God will judge our nation by its leaders.
We are commanded in the Bible to "salute the rank" and show respect and submit to the authority of those placed over us. Yet, we are also commanded to be the "light" in a dark world and to warn others of the judgment which will fall upon this nation whose leaders have turned their backs and our nation's back against God (just as John the Baptist shined the light of God's Word upon Rome's ruler in Israel ... and as all God's prophets warned the rulers and people when their actions were in opposition and rebellion against the Word of God.)
Contrary to what many large churches and denominations now teach, the Bible never says the "Church" (body of believers) will subdue the world, or solve the world's (or nation's) problems, or end the "wars", "famine", "poverty", "disease", "immorality", and "violence" (in fact the Bible warns these will continue to grow worse and worse) ... but, the believing "Church" is to tell people about the "good news" of having their sins forgiven and having the hope and promise of life everlasting in the Kingdom of Heaven by turning away ("repenting") from their sinful ways and placing all their trust (and love) in Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) the "King of kings."
But, as in the days after God raised up the Godly king Josiah (2 Kings 23), the sins of the earlier king Manasseh who "spilled much innocent blood" (sacrificing babies to Molech ... which we now call "abortion"), were so great (and so foul) in God's eyes that God would not turn from "His burning wrath" against Judah (which He soon destroyed and sent into captivity). (Prophecies: The coming "Apocalypse" and Armageddon ... "The Day of God's Wrath")
It is God (through Jesus Christ) who will crush this rebellion against His Word and it is God (through Jesus Christ) who will then establish His Kingdom of righteousness and goodness upon the Earth while seated on His Throne in Jerusalem. (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)
--WND/SFWeekly (GOD'S LAW: Homosexuality and Abortion) (The war against our CHILDREN ...) This is where believing Christians must stand fast in their faith and obedience to God's Word and should not remain silent. Our schools and teachers are placed as powerful "authorities" over our children and our children are taught to respect and learn from their teachers. Individual parents now have little or no voice as many schools willfully and arrogantly place our children in deadly Spiritual peril by requiring they embrace things which oppose God's Law and God's Word and will lead them away from the Kingdom of Heaven. Yet, most churches (who according to polls should theoretically have enough members to vote in people who would respect God's Word) remain silent ... in fact many churches now "approve of" these things which oppose God's Law and His Word. (Prophecies: Churches and church leaders will "depart from the faith" ... "will no longer endure sound doctrine")
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) warns ...
"Then Jesus (Yeshua) called a little child to him ...
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believes in Me to sin,
it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck
and he were drowned in the depths of the sea.
Woe to the world because of offenses, for offenses must come,
but, woe to that man (or woman) by whom the offense comes!"
(Matthew 18:2,3-7) ("Woe" is a terrible, terrible, terrible curse ... in this life ... or the next.)
God warns all those who simply "APPROVE OF" these things will be held just as guilty as those who actually do them ...
"For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven
against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men . . .
For even their women exchanged the natural use
for what is against nature (lesbianism).
Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,
burning in their lust for one another,
men with men committing what is shameful (homosexuality) . . .
that those who practice these things
are worthy of death, (HELL ..."where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth"... Matthew 13:50, Luke 13:28)
and not only those who do the same
but ALSO all those who APPROVE of those who practice them!"
(Romans 1:18, 26, 27, 32) (God's Promise ...) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...
"Now it was the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) in Jerusalem, and it was winter.
And Jesus (Yeshua) walked in the Temple, in Solomon's porch.
Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him,
"How long do You keep us in doubt?
If You are the Messiah (Christ), tell us plainly."
Jesus answered them,
"I told you,
and you do not believe.
The works (miracles) that I do in My Father's Name,
THEY bear witness of Me.
But you do not believe,
because you are not of My sheep,
as I said to you.
"My sheep hear My voice,
and I know them,
and they follow Me.
And I give them eternal life,
and they shall never perish (in Hell);(God's Promise ...)
neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
My Father, who has given them to Me,
is greater than all;
and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand.
I and My Father are one."
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.
Jesus answered them,
"Many good works (miracles) I have shown you from My Father.
For which of those works do you stone Me?"

Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...
"In the Beginning was the WORD . . .
and the Word was WITH God,
and the Word WAS God.
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.
He was in the world,
the world was made through Him,
and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own,
and His own did not receive Him . . .
(Excerpted from the Book of John 1:1-14)(Prophecies of Messiah (Christ) from the ancient Jewish Prophets (Old Testament)
King David's Psalm . . .

And praise Your Name
For Your loving kindness and Your truth;

--World Tribune (Prophecies: US "neutralized" ... then Russia 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, Clinton, and the core Democrat Party Leaders have been acting as agents of a foreign power (Russia-China and their allies) while undermining the vital interests of America, Israel, and our Allies.
We are never told who actually determines the policies or issues the "talking points" for Obama's speeches (we do know he merely reads them) or how such massive laws like "Obamacare" just appear overnight (the Democrat Congressman who brought forth the law recently admitted he had never even read it). So, if you continue to look objectively at the News Headlines over the past years (concerning Defense, Economic, Domestic, and Foreign policies) it also appears as though a comprehensive plan with a detailed time-line had been prepared well in advance by war-planners headquartered far away which the leaders of the Democrat Party are now in the process of methodically (and obediently) executing and implementing ... and, if this is the case, no arguments, or logic, or threats, or calls for compromise will distract or deter them from completing their mission to "change" America (and Israel and the world.)

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 about Heaven or Hell ...
"For God so loved the world
that He GAVE His only begotten Son,
that whoever BELIEVES (trusts) 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" (There will be no second chance for any who ignore or mock what God did for us on the Cross.)
(John 3:16-18) (Jesus greatly LOVED us to save us from Hell ... all God asks is that we love Him for all He has done for us.)
"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.)
Please Remember . . .
The Kingdom of Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world, no matter who they are, where they live, how old they are, or what sins they have committed. It is freely offered to any and all who will receive it. That is the "Good news" ('gospel' in Greek.) Simply learn of Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah, invite Him into your life as Lord, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (proving there is a Kingdom of Heaven ... and a Hell). Learn of Him and believe in Him . . . for He was the only one who has ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross. He shed His blood, suffered, and died on the Cross to pay for your sins and to save you from your sins and from the utter loneliness, darkness, and torment of Hell, if you will accept it, believe it, and trust in it ... it's God's Promise!!!
Grace and Shalom
