Three Weeks and Prophecy

Prophecy Update: May 24th 2018

The last three weeks have been amazing when it comes to Biblical prophecy. I think that the world is overwhelmed with military and political intelligence and we are moved by prophetic intelligence. How people look at current events shows who they are listening to and who they believe in. Those who see the move of the embassy to Jerusalem as a political move and not a spiritual move are showing that they are not moved by what God is doing on the earth.

The move to Jerusalem included the declaration that the city is the eternal capital of Israel and that is what all the nations of the world have a problem with! Why do the nations have a problem with Israel declaring Jerusalem their capital? Because the Bible is clear that this decision is a spiritual decision as well as a political one. Ps.2:2, “The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed.” The UN demonstrated this with their decision to declare that it was a violation of international law for America and Israel to move the embassy. Joel 3:1-2, “For behold, in those days and at that time, When I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations;
And they have divided up My land.” Notice that God says before the war can start, the restoration of Israel has to happen. Today, Israel is peaceful, powerful, and accomplishing the things God said would happen with them. This offends the world because the world is under the power of their god—Satan! Israel is going to get more powerful and more peaceful because the Bible predicts that. When people say peace and safety, then sudden destruction will come. Are you prepared? What has happened the last three weeks is the calm before the storm.

First: On May 8th the USA left the Iran deal.

Second: Iran criticized the move by the USA by threatening harm to America.

Third: Iran launched an attack on Israel that was foiled. The Israeli counter offensive dealt a decisive blow to Iran and her troops in Syria. These first three events are part of the process of several biblical prophecies happening at the same time. The alliance of nations listed in Ezekiel 38-39, who will attack Israel, they are already on the border of Israel. When Iran attacked Israel it was the first time and this war is moving towards fulfillment quicker than many thought possible.

Fourth: Iran announced that they were going to start their nuclear program again because of what the US did. “It is just speculation, but some would say this could lead to the destruction of Iran’s intercontinental missiles and nuclear facilities in Elam (part of Iran; Jer. 49:34-39).”

Fifth: Syria and Israel will get into a war in that day (a phrase that applies to the time of the end), and Damascus will cease to exist as a city in one night (Isa. 17). When Israel defended themselves by attacking the Iranian positions in Syria, Syria attacked Israel. That is very dangerous for Syria because Damascus is going to be destroyed.

Sixth: The USA opened up the embassy in Jerusalem, this is big! May 14th is important and I want to remind you of the worlds mind about this. On May 13th 2017 the UN said, “Any action taken by Israel, the occupying power to impose its law, jurisdiction, and administration on the city of Jerusalem (Al Quds) are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.” The UN response is testament that they are a tool of Satan. UN votes 128-9 to condemn US Embassy move to Jerusalem even after Haley’s warning.

Seventh: The nations of the world were in a rage against Israel and the USA. The interests of the world are that Israel does not own Jerusalem and God says the very opposite. The interests of the nations concerning the Iran deal have more to do with attacking Israel than protecting business. By the way, the businesses of Europe are fleeing Iran in droves!

Eight: Emmanuel Macron the president of France fashions himself the leader of all Europe. He did not like what the USA did in pulling out of the Iran deal and moving the embassy to Jerusalem. He called for a meeting with Putin of Russia and Merkel of Germany to stop the US and Israel. “Macron Heads to Russia to Save Iran Nuclear Deal” Iran has already lost 100 billion dollars because of what Donald Trump did. Russia and Turkey and Iran are all dealing with economic disasters!

Nine: Turkey called for a meeting with 57 other Muslim nations to talk about a Muslim army to destroy Israel and kill all of the Jews. “At a special summit in Turkey convened by President Tayyip Erdogan, they also pledged to take “appropriate political (and) economic measures” against countries that followed the United States in moving their Israel embassies to contested Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. “Army of Islam”: Erdogan’s Plot Against Israel, “What if an Army of Islam was Formed Against Israel?” The article openly called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to simultaneously attack Israel from the east, west, north, and south.

Ten: Turkey and Israel threw out each other’s diplomats.

These ten things are only a few of the things that have happened. Here is some information that goes with these ten things:

Saudi Arabia and some of the other Arab nations praised Pres. Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal. An amazing thing about this is that Sheba and Dedan are in Saudi Arabia; and they will also ask Russia, Iran and the others if they are going to take a spoil and a prey when they attack Israel in the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:13). The Saudis do not join the attack on Israel, amazing!

Erdogan said in a speech to Turkish students in a London broadcast by state television. “Israel is a terror state. What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America.” Erdogan was referring to the Gaza intrusion into Israel which Israel stopped.

Several news reports included this: “European Companies Flee Iran to Avoid US Sanctions. European companies are leaving the Islamic Republic of Iran in droves fearing U.S. sanctions after President Donald Trump’s decided to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal earlier this month. The regime in Tehran is “particularly concerned by the decisions of various European companies to halt their Iranian operations until the future of sanctions was clear,” several German newspapers reported on Monday. The EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who heads the bloc’s executive arm, proposed enacting laws to allow European companies to ignore the U.S. sanctions. This so-called ‘blocking statute’ could protect European firms from prosecution by the U.S. Treasury and other agencies.”

Who has pulled out of the Iran deal already? Boeing and there airbus deals with Iran, French company Total which dropped a five billion dollar deal with Iran, British Petroleum, Poland company PING, DZ bank from Germany, Italy company ENI, car companies Renault, Citron, and Peugeot, Danish company MERO and TOTIN, all totaling 100 billion dollars!
Iran has made new demands of the countries that want to stay in the deal. What are Ayatollah Khamenei’s main conditions?
• European powers should protect Iranian oil sales from the US sanctions and continue buying Iranian crude
• European banks should safeguard trade with Iran
• The UK, France and Germany should pledge not to seek negotiations on Iran’s ballistic missile programme and regional activities, both demanded by Washington
Iran is reeling because the opposite has happened and Iran promises to start up their nuclear program. I do not believe they ever stopped their nuclear program but that is another story.

What has become clear in this fight is that Europe does not stand with Israel but with Iran. The conditions are ready to fulfill the biblical prophecy of God calling the Jews home. Israel will take the West Bank and 2 million Jews will start streaming home. They do not have a home in Europe anymore. Consider this quote from last year: “For half a century memories of the holocaust limited anti-Semitism on the continent. That period has ended…renewed vitriol among right wing Fascists and new threats from radicalized Islamists have created a crisis confronting Jews with an agonizing choice. Do I stay or do I leave?”

Pray that the Jews leave Germany, France, Poland, and the Ukraine quickly because Europe has lost its mind. They are moving quickly to attack Israel and are supporting those who wish to destroy Israel. This does not bode well for Jews who live in those countries. Germany of all countries should be ashamed of themselves. Many Germans are appalled at Merkel and her deference to anti-Semites and support of the BDS movement. Let us pray that they can replace her and reclaim the Judeo Christian worldview and the Gospel! Pray for Europe to reclaim Christianity and love for Israel.

What a Week!

Prophecy Update: May 17th 2018

This past week has been extraordinary for several reasons. First I would like to tell you about our trip to the Dominican Republic.

We took 35 students and 5 staff to the Dominican for a mission trip. I was so proud of my students who worked so hard to serve the Dominicans. We did several things while there. We worked on several buildings, laying concrete floors, putting a roof on, and fixing things. Many of our students went into the classrooms of the school we were working with and they taught English and shared the gospel. Lastly, we played basketball. Our players taught the children in the school the game of basketball and we played three games (in three different cities). At half time of each of the games we shared the gospel. We shared the gospel with over 1000 people during the week and the Lord was glorified by His people. Pray for the Dominicans that God will keep blessing the school and their work to lead the children to the Lord. We all grew in our relationship with the Lord.

While in the Dominican, several important things happened in the world. The United States of America pulled out of the Iran deal and that has started a backlash in the nations.

From the Times of India: “France urges Europe to act on ‘unacceptable’ US Iran sanctions” PARIS: France’s economy minister Bruno Le Maire urged European nations Friday to defend themselves against US sanctions targeting foreign companies that trade with Iran, as the rift between Washington and its allies deepens.

From Euronews: “World reacts to US decision to pull out of Iran nuclear deal, “Do not let anyone dismantle this agreement. It is one of the biggest achievements diplomacy has ever delivered, and we built this together.” Federica Mogherini European Union.”

From AFP News agency: “Nations vow to save Iran Nuclear deal.

From Russia Today: “Iran warns US of response ‘stronger than they imagine’ if Trump scraps nuclear deal” “Iran will not violate the nuclear deal, but if the United States withdraws from the deal, they will surely regret it,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday, during a ceremony marking the 12th anniversary of the National Day of Nuclear Technology. He added Tehran’s response “will be stronger than what they imagine and they would see that within a week.”

In the last week, we have seen Iran attack Israel and Israel handed them a great defeat. The world has rejected what Trump did and they are in full rebellion. One liberal said this about it: “First and foremost, this unilateral act of reckless brinkmanship increases the chance of war. Second, like many of Trump’s actions, the pullout is a policy decision based on a lie: by every reliable metric, Iran was keeping up its end of the agreement. Third, the American decision will hurt the Iranian economy.” (Ted Rall Counterpunch news, May 16th)

With all respect to all of the liberals, the pullout of the Iran deal is the most pro-Israel and Pro-American thing we have done in 50 years. The Iran deal had two purposes, to increase Iran’s ability to destroy Israel and to attack Americans. All of Europe is showing its anti-Semitic side in the way they are reacting to this deal. Yes, they might lose some money but they will be standing for Israel against a regime that reports every day that they are committed to killing every Jew in the world. Emmanuel Macron of France has been very critical of the President. ‘He said on Thursday Europe would try to protect its companies doing business with Iran from U.S. sanctions, reimposed over Tehran’s nuclear program, but said giants like Total would make their own choices.’ Total, the French oil company, made the decision to stop doing business with Iran—a big win for Trump. Total CEO said, “With the sanctions the Americans are to impose, you can’t do business in Iran if you also have business in the U.S., and we have that on a large scale,” Skou told Reuters in an interview following the firm’s first-quarter report.

The president of the European Council has attacked Donald Trump’s “capricious assertiveness” after the US leader pulled his country out of the Iran nuclear deal and threatened the EU with tariffs on steel imports. In a letter to EU leaders ahead of their meeting Wednesday night in Sofia, Donald Tusk said that with friends like Donald Trump, the EU could ask who needs enemies. Mr Tusk said that confronted with challenges such as Mr Trump, Russia and China, the EU needed to be united “economically, politically and also militarily like never before” or risk being “a pawn” in global politics.
Let us see, the European Union wants to be more militarily independent of the USA? This is biblical prophecy coming to pass in our day. The reason is because the anti-Christ is going to use a military for his own purposes and that military will come out of Europe. The Europeans are woefully unprepared for war and do not have a good military, they rely on the USA for their protection. In fact, “Emmanuel Macron To Launch 10-Nation Military Coalition Next Month.”

Newsflash: PARIS — “Impatient with German foot-dragging on defense, French President Emmanuel Macron will bring together a 10-nation coalition of the willing next month designed to prepare European armed forces to take action together in emergencies, and to bind Britain into military cooperation as it leaves the EU. Defense ministers of France, the U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Denmark and Estonia will sign a letter of intent in Paris in June, officials told me, pledging to develop a common strategic culture, share analysis and foresight on trouble spots that may require intervention and work to coordinate their forces for future operations.”
All of these nations are next to each other in western Europe minus Estonia. Does Macron read the Bible? Is this a sick joke or is this real? Remember all of the prophecies regarding a ten nation coalition in Daniel 2, 7, and Revelation 12, 17?

The timing of these things are surreal because they are happening the very week that we moved the US embassy to Jerusalem. This was on the 70th anniversary of the reestablishment of the State of Israel on the earth. This is fulfillment of Bible prophecy! God is establishing His capital on the earth again which He promised to do. When Solomon finished building the Temple the Lord said to him, 2Chron.7:12-16, Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.”
Notice that the eyes and the heart of the Lord our God will be in Jerusalem forever! The Jews want to rebuild the Temple because this is the city which the Lord has chosen for Himself. At the celebration of the Embassy opening, 250 USA strong delegation attended the ceremony with 800 others, EU ambassadors declined to attend except Romania, Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Hamas organized the Nakba rebellion so that it would take away from the ceremonies and the world press lied about what happened. As 12 other countries have announced that they are moving their embassies, the world press viciously attacked Israel. They blamed them for the deaths of Gazan civilians who tried to break into Israel. The press refuses to tell people that the Hamas organization is a terror group who pays the people to go to the border and then they are killed for standing next to terrorists who use the civilians as human shields. CNN and the New York Times will never tell you that Hamas is a terror organization and that they are using the people as human shields to attack Israel. Egypt who feels threatened by Iran had enough and called the leader of Hamas in to dress him down and tell him to knock it off. Egyptian military officials told Hamas that Israel was going to kill the leadership of Hamas if they did not stop the protests and that Egypt would help Israel do it if they did not stop. You won’t hear this on the American news because most of the American news is committed to painting Israel as the bad guy. The Times of Israel reported: “PA official: Egypt asked Hamas to stop Gaza protests.” The so called “March of Return” initiated by Hamas is nothing more than an attempt to spread the news that Israel should not be in any part of the land of Israel!

The goal of kicking out the Jews has not stopped and will not stop. Let me remind you of something that happened in 1967. When Israel captured Jerusalem, the Prime minister was Levi Eshkol. Golda Meir became Prime minister in 1969. She said something that needs to be repeated when asked in 1971, why does Israel not give back Jerusalem and go back to the 1967 borders so that you can get peace? Her answer was, “four years ago we were at the 1967 borders and did not have peace! When Israel gave up the Gaza strip, everyone said that they would have peace and they got war. Every time Israel gives up land it gets war because the goal of those getting the land is to get all of the land. This tension will be with us until Jesus comes back! America blessed Israel this past week and I believe that God will bless the USA because of the tremendous decision to say to the world: Israel lives and her capital is Jerusalem! Vice President Mike Pence has been preaching to the world that God has put His people back into His land and quoted the Bible to prove it. When is the last time a Vice Pres. Quoted scripture to prove a point? Pray for the peace of Jerusalem we live in great times!
