(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.)
The Bible warns of a day when it will be very difficult to find teachers who will faithfully teach God's Word in the Bible ...
"BEHOLD, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD,
That I will send a FAMINE on the land,
NOT a famine of bread,
NOR a thirst for water,
But of HEARING the words of the LORD."
--Drudge/Ha'aretz (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war ... and will attack and 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 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)
--Russia News Agency (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, and allies will go to war ... and will invade Israel)
God expects Bible teachers to TEACH Bible prophecy, and God expects His people to LEARN the Bible prophecies ....
and pray ALWAYS
that you may be
counted worthy to escape
all these things
(Luke 21:36) (In most churches today people have not been adequately taught what to "watch" for ...)
"When you SEE these things happening,
KNOW that it (the 'Apocalypse') is near -- at the doors!
Assuredly, I say to you,
this generation will by no means pass away
(Mark 13:29) (It is important to learn those things that happen AFTER the Rapture ... BECAUSE they will happen AFTER the Rapture)
"Go your way, Daniel,
for the words are closed up and sealed
UNTIL the time of the end ...
None of the wicked shall understand,
but the wise SHALL understand."
--AFP (France) (Prophecies ... FAMINES)
"And there will be great earthquakes in various places,
and famines and pestilences (deadly diseases);
and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven."
At this point in time, we do not know what the "fearful sights" and "great signs" might be ...
--Fox News (Prophecies: "And there will be EARTHQUAKES in diverse places"...) (This prophecy is remarkable because it had to look far into the future and into the day (and generation) when there would be worldwide communications technology capable of reporting these worldwide earthquakes as they happen ... )
--NewsMax (Prophecies: The coming Antichrist) (The Bible warns of a coming government controlled One-World religious system ...)
In the Bible we find GOD will raise up evil nations against those He has blessed who have turned against Him and His Word ...

The Bible warns there will be scoffers "in the last days" saying "where is the promise of His coming".... .
"KNOWING this first:
that scoffers will come in the last days,
walking according to their own lusts, and saying,
"Where is the promise of His coming?
For since the fathers fell asleep,
all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."
For this they willfully forget:
that by the Word of God the heavens were of old,
and the Earth standing out of water and in the water,
by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
But the heavens and the Earth which are now preserved by the same Word,
are reserved for fire until the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
But, beloved, do not forget this one thing,
that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise,
as some count slackness,
but is longsuffering toward us,
not willing that ANY should perish
but that all should come to repentance.
But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night,
in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise,
and the elements will melt with fervent heat;
both the Earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved,
what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God,
because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire,
and the elements will melt with fervent heat?
Nevertheless we, according to His promise,
look for new heavens and a new Earth in which righteousness dwells.
Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things,
be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless" (Bible Warnings: The coming 'Apocalypse' ... We Will Know When We Are Close)

WARS and rumors of war) (Prophecies: The US will be "neutralized" ... then Russia and allies will invade Israel) (The Ayatollah's forces used the same tactic while spreading fear ("terror") to gain power and control over the people in Iran ... his gunmen ("terrorists") would ignite gasoline in a crowded theater and then bar the doors to trap those inside. With Iran (and now with Egypt and Mexico), the U.S. (then also under a Democrat Party President - Jimmy Carter) stood by, watched, and did nothing as a once close ally quickly tipped and sunk into the dark abyss of Islamic (and Russian) control. If you carefully study your "cold" war history you will find Mexico (with South America) has long been a high-priority for Soviet-Russian war strategists ... and Russia is now effectively using Iran along with flagless Islamic "terrorists" around the world as their rabid attack dogs to attack, weaken, and then devour nations.)

In Genesis God said He would reduce the UPPER age limit for Man to 120 years ...
"And the LORD said,
"My Spirit shall not strive with Man forever,
for he is indeed flesh;
yet his days shall be 120 years."
In Psalm 90 God reveals the AVERAGE age will be 70 - 80 years around the time of the coming "Apocalypse"...
"The days of our lives are SEVENTY years;
And if by reason of strength they are eighty years . . .
who knows the power of Your ANGER?" (Prophecies: The coming "Apocalypse" and Armageddon ... "The Day of God's Wrath")
(Psalm 90:10,11) (The average life span in the world is now reported at 69 years ... to 80 years in Israel.)
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 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 ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
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.)
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
