"Bless our God, O peoples;
“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 ...)

WARS and rumors of war) (From an interview with high-ranking Russian KGB defector Litvinenko shortly before he was assassinated (silenced) by Russia's KGB in Britain ... the KGB officer suspected of leading the Russian KGB assassination team against Litvinenko in Britain has since been "elected" to the Russian Duma which provides him with immunity from extradition.)
--Drudge/Nat'l Journal (Prophecies: The US will be "neutralized" ... then Russia and allies will invade Israel) (Our political leaders have turned victory into defeat and our strength into weakness. The Bible tells us why ... it because they have forgotten God, no longer fear God, and no longer love or trust in God and God's Word.)

--Russia News Agency (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war ... ) (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon) (Russia's new "Sineva" nuclear missile is similar to their new "Bulava" advanced multi-warhead nuclear missile ... each has a new class of submarine designed specifically (and separately) to deploy and launch each new type of nuclear missile ... and their primary mission is for pre-emptive nuclear strikes).
--Russia News (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) (Prophecies: The US will be "neutralized" ... then Russia and allies will invade Israel) (Obama and the Democrats cancelled our next generation fighter-jet ... Obama and the Democrat Party's DEFENSE and SECURITY 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.)

"Whenever I am afraid,

I will trust in God

--WND "In the Beginning God created the heavens and the Earth" (Genesis 1:1) ... and God created everything to look just as young or as old as He wanted them to look (Hollywood set designers exert great effort trying to do this for little movies). Man's knowledge (and textbooks) are like shifting sands that change year-by-year and generation by generation ... whereas God's Word ... like a "Rock" rising majestically high above the vast desert of time ... stands alone and unchanged with no contradictions or error ... and continues on as the only source of pure and true knowledge found on Earth. In the Bible God reveals the "History of the World ... Written in Advance!!!"
The Bible takes us from the Very BEGINNING ...
"In the Beginning
GOD created the heavens and the Earth."
To the Very END ...
"Then I saw a NEW heaven and a NEW Earth,
for the first heaven and the first Earth
had passed away."
--WND/EllisWashingtonReport.com (Prophecies: The coming Antichrist) (Israel should shudder as she sees this darkness rising in the West ... and all believing Christians should shudder and take shelter upon "the Rock" (God's Word - Messiah) and seek refuge under "the shadow of His wings" as we see this terrible spiritual darkness spreading which the Bible warns will one day "cover the Earth."

--WND (Bible prophecies: The 'Generation of Armageddon') ("Atheism" is the official religion of Socialist-Communists (and our Democrat Party) ... "Atheism" is a religion that despises God and mocks God's Word ..."Atheism" is led by the spirit and power of Satan.)

A few of the titles found in the Bible describing Satan include ...
- The Father of ALL Lies (John 8:44)
- The Liar (John 8:44)
- Lying spirit (1 Kings 22:22)
- The prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2)
- The Evil One (Matthew 6:13)
- The Ruler of the demons (Matthew 12:24)
- The Ruler of this world (John 12:31, John 14:30, John 16:11)
- Ruler of the Darkness (Ephesians 6:12)
- Abaddon (Destroyer) (Revelation 9:11)
In times of trouble . . .
"The LORD is my Shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His Name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
And Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) graciously tells us ...
"I AM the good Shepherd.
The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep."
(John 10:11) (God's Promise ...)
--WND (Bible Warnings: The coming 'Apocalypse' ... "The Day of God's Wrath"... We Will Know When We Are Getting Close) Two of the great heresies found today include presuming to know the day of the coming Rapture ... or to deny the coming Rapture.
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) clearly warns NO MAN will ever know the day or the hour ...
"But of that day and hour NO ONE knows,
not even the angels in heaven,
nor the Son,
but ONLY the Father."
for you know neither the day nor the hour
in which the Son of Man is coming."
Note: We know He is speaking of the coming "Rapture" in these passages because the Bible tells us when He will return the second time to rule upon the Earth. We are told exactly 3 1/2 years (also given as "1260 days" and "42 months") after "the abomination of Desolation" (the day the coming Antichrist will enter into the coming Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and demand to be worshipped as God) Messiah will return the second time (not as a "thief in the night") but when "every eye will see" (Revelation 1:7) to save the remnant of the children of Israel and to reign over the Earth. (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)
"Beware of FALSE prophets,
who come to you in sheep's clothing, (looking and sounding just like Christians)
but inwardly they are ravenous wolves." (Many hearts can be hardened against God's Word after false prophecies ...)
For ANYONE to presume to know something the Lord has told us NO MAN (or angel or even the Son of God) will know reflects unbelief and opposition to the Word of God ...
"Then many false prophets will rise up
and deceive many." (Prophecies ... False Prophets would rise and lead many)
"But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My Name,
which I have not commanded him to speak,
or who speaks in the name of other gods,
that prophet shall die.
And if you say in your heart,
'How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?'
"When a prophet speaks in the Name of the LORD,
if the thing does not happen or come to pass,
that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken;
the prophet has spoken it presumptuously;
you shall not be afraid of him."
Note To Readers: Even though Jesus (Yeshua) commands us to "Know" (the prophecies) and to "Watch!" and "When you SEE these things"... many churches spend little or no time or effort teaching the many things the Bible warns we will see leading up to and following after the coming "Rapture" for lack of knowledge or for fear of being accused of being a "date setter."
We feel every believing Christian should have a basic knowledge and understanding of Bible prophecy (around 25% of the Bible is prophetic) ... and if people are forced to come to a site like this for their only meaningful (but limited and imperfect) exposure to Bible prophecy, then our churches are in great trouble.
No "dates" are ever set here ... but when people have been diligently taught they can intelligently and prayerfully compare Current Events with Bible Prophecies to see if there is any statistical significance surrounding this generation, or if there has been any other time in history all these things have (or even could have) "intersected," and if this "generation of Israel" does appear to be unique, then the discussion of Bible prophecies can be a great tool to help lead people back to the Bible and God's Word (because no other religion or book on Earth can compare or accept God's challenge to tell "the end from the beginning" in detail as God does to prove He is God and the Bible is His Word.) (Prophecies: The coming "Apocalypse" ... "The Day of God's Wrath")
The Bible warns Sodom and Gomorrah were given as a dire warning and "EXAMPLE" for a coming generation ...
"As Sodom and Gomorrah,
and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, ( 5 cities were destroyed including Sodom and Gomorrah)
having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, (homosexuality)
are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."
"And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
condemned them (Sodom and Gomorrah) to destruction,
making them an example
to those who afterward would live ungodly ..." (Prophecies: The coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon)
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies ... Israel AFTER becoming a nation in 1948) (Obama cleared the way for the Muslim Brotherhood ...)
--World Tribune (Prophecies ... Israel AFTER becoming a nation in 1948) (More of our leaders need to study and believe the Bible ...)
--Israel Nat'l News (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, TURKEY, and allies will attack and invade Israel ...) The "Labor" (and "Kadima) Parties in Israel (like the "Democrat Party" in the US) march in lock-step and maintain strict party-discipline under Socialist (aka Marxist, Communist, Liberal, Leftist) doctrine ... the "fount" of Socialist doctrine, policy, and planning is Russia. The enforced "religion" of Socialism is "Atheism" which despises God and actively ignores and opposes God's Word. (Prophecies: The coming Antichrist)
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophecies: The coming Antichrist) (Prophecies ... Israel AFTER becoming a nation in 1948)
--DavidHocking.org (Prophecies ... Israel AFTER becoming a nation in 1948) (God warns the "Palestinians" aren't going to fare well ...)
--DavidHocking.org (Bible Prophecies: EGYPT) (Obama-Clinton helped topple Mubarak to prepare for this ...)
--Jerusalem Post/Caroline Glick (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) (Prophecies: "DECEIVING (LYING) "... "In The Last Days")
--Russia News Agency (Prophecies ... WARS and rumors of war) (The Norwegian massacre will suit Russia's propaganda purposes ...)
--Israel Nat'l News "I (God) will BLESS those who bless you (Israel) and will CURSE those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3)
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.)
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!!!
Grace and Shalom
