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)

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.)
--Jerusalem Post (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 believing 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)
--Debkafile (But, he also warns if an attack against Iran does take place Russia would not "be indifferent to such an occurrence"...)
In times of trouble ...
"The righteous cry out, (We are told we are made righteous through our faith in Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
and the Lord hears
and delivers them
out of all of their troubles."
(Psalm 34:17) (It often takes a while ... as God does His good work through our difficult tests and trials.)
"We know that all things
work together for good,
to those who love God"
The Bible doesn't say just some things or most things ... it says all things "work together for good!!!" (no matter how bad it might seem now.) But, the Bible warns we have to "love God" (and Jesus) to qualify for this wonderful promise that brings both hope and comfort in times of trouble.

--Drudge/London Times (Obama and the Democrat Party are now marching in lock-step with Putin and Russia ...)
--Drudge/Reuters (While America's European allies call it cowardly and and a "stab in the back"...)
--Drudge/Examiner (It is no surprise GE's NBC tv is so antagonistic toward non-"Democrat" Party policies and candidates ...)
--Russia News Agency (America's allies (including Israel) must re-assess who the US is really now politically allied with ...)
--Middle-East Newsline (Prophecies: Russia, Iran, TURKEY, and allies will go to war and will attack and invade Israel) (Even though Turkey is still a member of NATO its new Islamic government has been turning toward (and sympathizing with) Russia and Iran over the past 2 - 4 years or so ...)
Jesus (Yeshua) laid the foundation of all prayer in times of trouble . . .
"Father, if it is Your will,
take this cup (whatever the difficulty or trouble is in your life)
away from Me;
not My will,
but Your Will, be done." (He can and will "deliver us from all our afflictions"... if it is His Will ... and if it will glorify His Name.)
(Luke 22:42) (God did not take away the terrible troubles facing Jesus at this time ... but He used them for His good purpose.)
"Casting all your cares upon Him,
for He cares for you."
(1 Peter 5:7)
"But let him ask in faith,
with no doubting,
for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea
driven and tossed by the wind.
For let not that man (the man or woman who doubts)
suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord"
it is the last hour;
and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming,
even now many antichrists have come,
by which we know that it is the last hour."
(1 John 2:15-18)
--Drudge/Fox News (Gov't Regulation = Gov't Control ... Our nation was founded on freedom from government control.)
Audio Reveals White House Using NEA (Nat'l Endowment of the Arts) to Push Political Agenda ...
--Fox News (This same man who kept silent (and hidden) during our National Day of Prayer, yet spoke eloquently about Islam during Ramadan doesn't seem to spend much time in church on Sundays ... like scary movie characters, he and the Democrats seem to flee from the Cross.)
In times of trouble ...
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not
on your own understanding"
(Proverbs 3:5) (Stop worrying about how bad things "look" ... pray earnestly and trust only in the Lord ... in faith!!!)
"And those whose faith
has made them good in God’s sight
must live by faith,
trusting Him in everything." (Not in just a few things ... or most things ... but trust Him in everything!)
(Hebrews 10:38 TLB) (The assurance of life in Heaven ... it's NOT too late!!!)
--Pravda (Russia) More high-level Democrat Party Soviet-Marxists ... Clinton's Sec'y of State Madeleine Albright was born in Soviet-Czechoslovakia and her real name is "Marie Jana Korbelová"... she now speaks fluent Russian and her family was approved by the Soviet KGB for travel to the west for "Christian" reasons (while the KGB was imprisoning real believing Christians) ... yet, this same "Christian" after visiting Sudan during the Democrat Clinton Administration warned her staff to keep silent over the fact it was Christians who were being massively slaughtered by the Russia-backed Islamic regime (close to 2 million have died under the onslaught) ... she also once said it was okay to give China and our enemies military secrets because if we were on equal levels they would no longer be afraid of us and we could just be friends.

--NewsMax (Prophecies ... Famines)
--Israel Nat'l News/Engelhard "I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3)
--Ynet (Prophecies ... Israel and Jerusalem after becoming a nation ... UPDATED) (Prophecies of Messiah's Return) The Bible warns "at the time of the end" (around the time of the coming "Apocalypse," Armageddon and "the time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble"... Jeremiah 30:7) ALL NATIONS (including the US) will turn against Israel (Zechariah 14:1-2 ... Joel 3:1-2 ... Revelation 16:13-16) ... but, it is heart-wrenching to see it happening ... it is like watching the water receding from the beach just before a great and terrible tidal wave strikes. Remember ... Armageddon is in Israel ... also remember ... through the return of Messiah (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ... Israel WINS ... and will rule over the nations in peace.
am God, and there is no other.
Note: Many people today do not know whether or not they (or their loved ones) will go to Heaven. Many have not been adequately taught what the Bible actually says and teaches ...
For the Assurance of Life in Heaven . . . ACT (A.C.T.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) ...
- That He (lovingly and willingly) died for all of your sins on the Cross ...
- That He was buried ...
- That He was powerfully raised (Resurrected) from the dead the third day ...
- And is now seated on His throne in Heaven!!! (Notice He did all the work ... all you have to do is "believe.")
- Turn back to God and God's Word ... and turn away from sinful activities ("repent")
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 died on the Cross, was buried, and was raised (resurrected) from the dead (through the awesome and wonderful 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"... God (Jesus) did ALL the work ... life in Heaven is offered as a gift!!!
Yet, 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 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" (The implications of this verse are staggering!)
"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)
NOT of works, (we can’t and won’t enter Heaven through any “good deeds” we have done)
lest anyone should boast." (We are told it’s a gift from God … we just have to receive it.)
