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)

Prophecies of Messiah's Return ...
"Therefore WAIT for Me," says the LORD,
UNTIL the day I rise up to plunder (attack the prey); (Prophecies: The coming "Rapture"... Jew and Gentile ... don't be "left behind")
my determination is to gather the nations
to My assembly of kingdoms,
to pour on them My indignation,
all my fierce anger; (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)
all the Earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.
For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
(for the first time since the Tower of Babel in ancient Babylon)
that they all may call on the name of the LORD,
to serve Him with one accord."
The Lord comes with ten thousands (millions) of His saints (believing Christians),
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 (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew).’"
(Jude 1:14-15) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog,
("Gog" is either the powerful angelic-demonic leader or powerful human leader of "Magog" ... Russia)
Thus says the Lord GOD:
On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it?
Then you will come from your place
out of the far NORTH, (literally "uttermost parts of the North" ... take a globe and look "FAR north" of Israel)
you and many peoples with you,
all of them riding on horses,
a great company and a mighty army.
You will come up against My (God's) people Israel
like a cloud, to cover the land.
It will be in the latter days
that I (God) will bring you against MY Land (Israel),
so that the nations may know Me,
when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” (For God alone will destroy this invading army ...)
--Drudge/AFP (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will invade Israel ...) (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon) 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 ... (1 Thessalonians 1:10 ... 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)

Prophecies of Messiah's Return ...
The LORD will come with fire and with His chariots,
like a whirlwind (a global hurricane of fire),
to render His anger with fury,
and His rebuke with flames of fire.
For by fire and by His sword the LORD will judge ALL flesh;
and the slain of the LORD shall be many." (Prophecies: The coming "Rapture"... Jew and Gentile ... don't be "left behind")
(Isaiah 66:15-16) (Jesus warns, "As in the days of Noah"... and only 8 people were saved.)
"Thus says the LORD of Armies (Hosts):
Disaster shall go forth from nation to nation ...
And at that Day the slain of the LORD
shall be from one end of the Earth
even to the other end of the Earth . . ." (Nobody will escape God's wrath after the coming "Rapture")
"The Earth is violently broken,
(the Earth will reel under the power of His return)
the Earth is split open,
the Earth is shaken exceedingly.
The Earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
and shall totter like a hut;
its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
and it will fall, and not rise again." (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)
(Isaiah 24:19-20) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)

Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) says to those who believe Him and abide in His Word ...
"And you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free ...
Therefore, if the Son (of God) makes you free,
you shall be free indeed." (God's Promise ...)
(John 8:32, 36) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)
and the Life.
NO ONE comes to the Father
except through Me." (Believe this and you will be set free ... with the hope and promise of everlasting life in Heaven.)
God warns HIS children WILL find suffering and misery in this short life (but not in Heaven which will last forever) ...
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,
these are sons of God.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear,
but you received the Spirit of adoption (we are "adopted" as children by God through faith in His Son ...)
by whom we cry out, "Abba (Daddy), Father."
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit
that we are children of God, (ONLY those who believe and love the Son of God are called the "children" of God)
and if children, then HEIRS --
heirs of GOD
and JOINT heirs with Messiah (Christ), (consider all the Earth and the Heavens to see what you will "inherit"...)
IF indeed we SUFFER with Him, (there will be suffering, troubles, and testing in this life for "the children of God"...)
that we may also be glorified together.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared with the glory
which shall be revealed in us."
(Romans 8:14-18) (Finding Hope and Comfort in Times of Trouble ...) (God's Promise ...)
And God commands His children ...
"Do everything WITHOUT complaining and arguing (disputing),
that you may become
blameless and harmless children of God without fault
in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine as lights in the world, (God's Commandment ... Biblical "Love"... What IS it?)
holding fast the Word of life,
that I have not run in vain or labored in vain."
(Philippians 2:14-16) (God's Promise ...) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)
Prophecies of Messiah's Return ...
"From Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew),
the faithful witness,
the firstborn from the dead, (speaking of His Resurrection)
and the Ruler over the kings of the Earth.
To Him who LOVED us
and WASHED us from our sins in His own blood,
and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, (God's Promise ...)
to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
BEHOLD, He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him,
even they who pierced Him.
(not as a "thief in the night" this time)
And all the tribes of the Earth will mourn because of Him.
Even so, Amen." (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)
"And I will pour on the house of David
and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem
the Spirit of grace and supplication;
then they will look on Me whom they have pierced;
they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son,
and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."
"At that time Jerusalem (the same Jerusalem you see on the news)
shall be called the Throne of the LORD,
and ALL the nations shall be gathered to it,
to the Name of the LORD, to Jerusalem.
No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts."
"He will be great,
and will be called the Son of the Highest;
and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever,
and of His Kingdom there will be no end."
(Luke 1:32-33) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)

bama's Sec'y Of Defense Nominee (Panetta) Linked To Marxist Group Who Supported Cold War Soviets ...
--WND (Bible prophecies: 'Generation of Armageddon'..."TRAITORS") (Prophecies: The 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. Obama and the Democrat Party's DEFENSE policies are based on Marxist-Socialist (Soviet) doctrines and strategies 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 defend and protect us.

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.
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 bore all of your sins and died on the Cross ... and 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"... Jesus (God) did ALL the work ... life in Heaven is OFFERED as a GIFT!!!
AND 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 (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.)
Grace and Shalom
