Progress of Prophecy

Prophecy Update: June 15th, 2018

This week I would like to do an overview of what has taken place since the four blood moons in 2014-2015. I think that this overview will give us a good understanding of where we are at in bible prophecy. I was inspired to do this because of an article outlining the attack on Benjamin Netanyahu from the State Department in 2015.
Here is the general outline:

2014-2015: the Four Blood Moons
Sept.23 2015: the Bethlehem star showed up, it appears every 2000 years.
Sept. 23 2017: the Revelation 12 sign. The woman being Israel, God is raising up Israel for the last day prophecies to come true. Following the sign of Israel is the sign of the rise of the antichrist system. That is happening as we speak.

In the midst of these six clear biblical signs a lot of things have taken place that will blow your mind. In between these six signs I want to outline for you the birth pangs that have taken place. But first, what happened this week that spurred my thinking on this subject. World Net Daily had this headline: “Proof Obama sent your money to defeat Bibi in Israel election.” ‘The U.S. government was informed of the overtly political agenda of OneVoice Israel and OneVoice Palestine – to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – but gave the groups American taxpayer money anyway.’ Way back in 2015 when Benjamin Netanyahu ran for prime minister of Israel, the USA interfered in their election. The State Department funded groups to defeat the Prime Minister. As you have done to Israel, so it will be done to you. If you want to know why Clinton lost the election, you do not have to look farther than Gen.12 when it promises if you curse Israel you will be cursed. The article goes on to say, “It is clear from these emails that the Obama State Department was aware of OneVoice’s opposition to Netanyahu and support for Abbas – whose son was one of its leaders – at the same time State was doling out hundreds of thousands of U.S. taxpayer dollars to it.”

You cannot curse Israel and not get burned by the hand of God. Here are some of the things that took place in 2014: A war was started by Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The war included using the people from the Gaza strip as human shields. This, the press in the West especially refused to talk about. Israel won the war but they were blamed for everything and the terrorist organization Hamas was praised by the western media for fighting against Israel. The anti-Israel stance of the world was just beginning.
On Israel northern border, Syria was fighting a civil war and it took a turn for the worse. As the Syrian army was losing the Russians and the Iranians began intervening in very direct ways. Here is what happened:

On June 25th 2015, the United States Supreme Court voted to redefine marriage. This decision put America in the Sodom and Gomorrah corner.

On July 14, 2015, the USA signed the JCPOA agreement with Iran. This decision put us squarely on the side of the Iranians against Israel. It was the most anti-Semitic decision I had seen in years.

As these things were happening, Iran was moving troops into Syria to help there buddy Bashir Assad, the President of Syria. The president of the USA said that there would be a red line if the Syrians used chemical weapons, they used them and we did nothing.

On Sept.23, 2015, the Bethlehem Star showed up. This star can signal the soon appearance of the Lord Jesus.

Finally on September 30, 2015 Russia entered Syria and they have not left. Iranian troops entered earlier to help Hezbollah defend the troops of Bashir Assad and practice for the day they would attack Israel. This appearance of both Iran and Russia on the northern borders of Israel is prophesied to happen in Ezekiel 36-37. The birth pangs are getting closer and closer. The hatred of Israel was growing and the world was coalescing around that hatred. Several terrorist attacks in Europe against Jews were hushed up by the media.
2016 was a year when the birth pangs got closer and closer.

March 2016: Candidate Donald Trump spoke at the annual AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) convention in Washington D.C. He mentioned that he would move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem because Jerusalem was the eternal, undivided capital of Israel. This was a game changer in world politics. For those of us who see the world through prophetic and spiritual lenses, this was a throw down against Satan and the New World Order. He also came out very strong for Pro Life issues and leaving the Iran deal. Satan is always responding to what he sees God doing. So Satan had to act quick to reassure his evil servants that Jerusalem would not fall under Gods will.

April 21st 2016: UNESCO, the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization said that Jerusalem is not Jewish. The Palestinian Authority asked for the vote and over fifty nations voted that Jerusalem does not have a right to the Western Wall, or a right to anything in Jerusalem. I think that Satan saw that God was raising up Trump who would actually do what he said and that started a cascading of evil.

June 23rd 2016: Brexit, a vote against the New World Order was the first serious threat to the European Union. The backlash was swift, calling Brits bigots and anti-immigration etc. The EU is falling apart today because more nations are rebelling.

November 2016: Donald Trump won the election, a person who is against the New World Order and for nation states. The backlash and attack against this vote was swift. Every threat and accusation has been hurled at this man and his supporters.

December 23 2016: the UN trying to stop what God was doing, the United Nations Security Council voted that all Israeli settlements are illegal and a violation of international law. Including Jerusalem! WOW—the world was throwing down against what God was doing. God was preparing the ground to once again reestablish Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

February 2017: President Trump immediately told the world to come up with a better plan for Iran or he would leave the deal. Now he was putting pressure on the nations. He attacked Syria, killed Russian troops and made it clear that he was not going to back down. He threatened nuclear war with North Korea so that they would come to the bargaining table.

July 19 2017: UNESCO struck again by stating that Hebron, where David reigned for 7 years and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are buried is not a Jewish city. It is very clear that this is spiritual warfare in the heavenlies over cities. Satan has controlled Jerusalem thru Gentiles for 2000 years and he does not want it to go to Israel, nor does he want Hebron to fall. But fall it will, soon Israel will fight and claim Hebron for their own.

Sept.23, 2017: the Revelation 12 sign.
December 6th 2017: Trump announces that he will move the embassy and does not sign the waiver from the 1995 law that said we must move the embassy. The world had a heart attack.
The UN voted again and said that Jerusalem is not Jewish and they condemned what Trump said he was doing.

May 14th 2018, USA moved the embassy. The most important prophetic event in our lifetime!! Why? The establishing of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel means that soon the times of the Gentiles is over. The next step is to rebuild the temple. The Jews made a coin with Cyrus the Great, Lord Balfour, and Donald Trump on it to commemorate the reestablishment of Israel and Jerusalem. Cyrus is the great Persian king who God called in Ezra 1 to bring the Jews back and rebuild the Temple. Lord Balfour is the British official who make the Belfour Declaration in 1917 to reestablish the state of Israel after world war one, and President Trump did what no one else had guts to do, stand up to the nations and declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Just days before the embassy move the US left the Iran deal. That has caused the nations of the world to unite against us.

Zechariah 12 tells us that the nations will hate this decision and will come and make war someday against Israel over this decision. That war is Armageddon! Before we can have Armageddon we have to have the rapture and the rebuilding of the temple. Also, we have to have Israel occupying and ruling over Judea and Samaria, what the world calls the West Bank. West Bank is a term laced with anti-Semitism because it intimates that only Jordan has a right to rule over Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. The Settlement movement into Judea and Samaria has been steadily growing and taking the land back. It will complete the job soon. I believe that we are very close to war in Israel where Israel will take all of her land back, the land God is giving her! I am pleading Amos 9:15 today, God says, “I will plant them in their land and they will not again be rooted out from their land which I gave them says the LORD your God.” Ezekiel 36 promises that all of the cities, Hebron, Shiloh, Bethlehem, Jericho, and Bethel just to name a few will be given back to Israel. Get ready for some fireworks!! There are many more details to this outline that I had to leave out. I hope to talk about them with you soon!

Prophecy Updates

Iran and End Times

Prophecy Update: June 8th 2018

One of the clear evidences that we are in the end times is the treatment of Israel. The nations of the world are arrayed against her and treat her with contempt. This is why the United States is such an anomaly. When President Trump showed kindness and favor to Israel, he was attacked in hateful ways that mirror the way Israel is attacked. I want to explore this sign of the end times in this update.

There is a deep seated hatred of Israel in Europe. With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Europe visiting France, Germany, and Britain this week, I want to revisit the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe. Netanyahu is not going to friendly places, Britain, France, and Germany have defended Muslim immigration and the Iran deal. The subsequent attack on Jews from the Muslim community has been hushed up or openly denied. The Washington Times said this:
“In our own time of hyperpartisan anger and resentment, when everyone seems to be mad at somebody, there’s a resurgence of anger at the Jews in Europe. Physical assaults on Jews average twice a week in France, Jews in Germany worry about open anti-Semitism among migrants and refugees from Syria and Iraq, a new libel law in Poland prohibits attribution or responsibility to Polish complicity in the Holocaust, synagogues in Sweden were targeted for vandalism after the United States relocated its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, and English Jews demonstrated in London against anti-Semitism in the British Labor Party.” May 28th 2018, Washington Times.

“Jews worry too much. That seems to be the point of a recent article in the otherwise sensible Economist. Sure, two German rappers won that country’s highest music award by bragging their torsos are “better defined than an Auschwitz inmate’s” and vowing to “make another Holocaust.” But, says the Economist, the intended targets of this aspirational Holocaust were “unclear” and could “possibly [be] rival hip-hop artists.” From these two recent articles, if I were Jewish I would be leaving Germany and France now.

Consider these two articles one from 2016 and the second one from this week?
On November 9 2016, an anti-racism demonstration was going to be held in Umeå, Sweden, in commemoration of Kristallnacht (the night in 1938 in which 400 Jews were murdered in Germany, and 30,000 Jewish men arrested and sent to concentration camps). There was just one catch: the Jews in Umeå were not invited to the demonstration. The reason given, according to one of the organizers, Jan Hägglund, was that the demonstration would be “perceived as an unwelcoming or unsafe situation for them.”
June 4th 2018: Swedish Minister to PA Arabs: We will fight with you and for you
“Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom pledges to ‘fight’ for Palestinian Arabs. Sweden’s foreign minister told Palestinian Arabs that her country will “fight with you and for you,” prompting pro-Israel activists to accuse her of encouraging violence against Israelis.”

What these two articles illustrate is that anti-Semitism is alive and well in Europe, Sweden is in full out hatred of Jews and all Jews should leave this anti-Semitic country because they will not protect you. The foreign minister Margot Wallstrom has a history of hating on Jews and Israel.

This is why the meetings this week between Netanyahu and the leaders of Europe are so important. I have no doubt that this will prompt the haters of Israel to go farther than they ever have. Netanyahu said that he had two agendas, Iran and Iran. The two agendas are: block Iran’s aggression in the region and continue pressure on Iran against its nuclear program. As if anyone wanted it made clear where Iran stood on these meetings, the Ayatollah Khamenei made it clear on Monday: Netanyahu said, “Just yesterday, Iran’s leader [Ali Ayatollah] Khamenei, yesterday he said again that Israel is a cancer that has to be eradicated, will be eradicated from the earth. “This is amazing that in the beginning of the 21st century, somebody talks about destroying Israel. It means destroying another 6 million plus Jews. It’s quite extraordinary that this goes on, but this is what we face.” So how did Merkel respond to this message?

Merkel then spoke, continuing with her support of the nuclear deal, stating that Germany “supports Israel’s right to security and have said this to Iran all along. We have the same goal that Iran must never get a nuclear weapon. The difference between us is how to do that.” While she stated that Iran’s “regional influence is worrying, especially for Israel’s security” she reported that Germany would “make every diplomatic effort to make use of our influence on the issue of Iran’s ballistic program and its activities in Yemen and the presence of Iran’s army in Syria.” I believe that actions are louder than words. Merkel’s actions are to defend the Iran deal. That deal is supplying money and arms to Iran to destroy Israel. If you want to help Israel, you scrap the deal. As soon as Merkel says she is staying with the Iran deal, everything else she says is bogus. This is a woman who defended bringing in more Muslim refugees and denied they were raping women and attacking Jews. In 2015 she said, “Merkel pledges to protect Muslim faith in an ‘undivided’ Germany, She also said that Islam belongs to Germany as much as Judaism.” Her vision for Germany will drive the Jews from the land because you cannot defend the rights of Islam and Jews at the same time. Der Spiegel magazine said this of Angela Merkel today (Wednesday 6/6/2018), “Once upon a time, the books will say: Angela Merkel watched Europe fall apart, and she has not intervened.” You cannot intervene when your too busy defending the indefensible.

The same thing happened in France, with everyone’s head stuck in the sand, France denies that it is the type of culture that will repeat the holocaust. Every day that France protects Sharia law, no go zones, and Muslim freedom to do whatever they want, they will be destroyed under the weight of their multicultural god. Netanyahu brought the same message and got the same response, Iran wants to kill us, develop nukes, take over the Middle East, Macron: were staying in the Iran deal! So how did the French press treat Netanyahu, here are the headlines: “French protests against Netanyahu’s visit: No red carpets for war criminals.” ‘French and Arab organizations in France called for a protest in Paris on Tuesday to reject the visit of the Prime Minister of the Israeli entity Benjamin Netanyahu, saying it is “shame to receive the butcher of Gaza.” Macron also said that France supports the “two-state solution,” and claimed the transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv “caused death.” He said he made it clear to Israel’s prime minister that he was “concerned about the events of the last few weeks on the Gaza border that threaten the peace process.”
What is clear so far from Netanyahu visit to Europe is that Europe is primed for another of God’s prophecies to come true. God promised that He would take His people Israel from the north and bring them into the land of Israel and they would rebuild the ancient cities. A lot of Jews need to start coming so they can rebuild many of those cities in the West Bank. As Germany and France have made clear, they support Hamas, a terrorist organization, and support their terror campaign against Israel by blaming Israel for protecting the border and giving Hamas a pass for all of the attacks on Israel.
Macron also purports himself to be the leader of the whole world. Consider this headline: “Macron wants to build French-led new world order – but no-one is listening.” How about this one: “Emmanuel Macron To Launch 10-Nation Military Coalition Next Month.” Macron wants to have a new group to replace the EU and challenge the USA. “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.” This sounds like Daniel 2 and the development of the ten nation coalition. Daniel said that the statue would have ten toes that are ten nations, kings. It is a little bizarre that this is happening now.
Get this prophetic timing: At the same time that Israel is being strengthened by God, powerful and prosperous, a leader in Europe wants to unite the world around himself (Macron). Another leader, Erdogan of Turkey wants an Islamic army to wipe out the Jews. This is happening as the nations support Iran! This is setting up the Gog Magog prophecy and the return of the Jews from Europe. A final empire is coming on the earth that will exhibit the hatred of Israel that Germany, France, and Great Britain are exhibiting at this time. John saw the same thing that Daniel saw, he wrote of the final empire in Revelation 17—the beast is rising! The final empire that God predicted would be on the earth is coming!

It is Friday morning and I have waited to write this last part until Netanyahu met with May from Britain. Well, as I expected, Britain supported Iran over Israel. In fact, Britain, France, and Germany are asking the USA to support their Iran shenanigans. Europe Asks U.S. for an Exemption From Sanctions on Iran, NY Times 6/5/2018. The US has crushed Iran by pulling out of the Iran deal. God is using this action to force the nations into hating Israel even more. God is exposing the attitudes of their hearts. The attitude of the hearts of the Europeans is to support Islam over Christianity, to support anti-Semitism over supporting Israel. That has become very clear this week. Once again, God has used President Trump as a spear to the world: “In a letter to senior Trump administration officials, European foreign and finance leaders this week tacitly acknowledged that their efforts to preserve the West’s nuclear deal with Iran were failing.” Trump forced the nations to choose between Iran and Israel and they chose Iran. This is prophecy coming to pass in our day—what a day to be alive! Pray for the Christians who are persecuted for their faith and for the Jews under threat of harm in Europe. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I want to write ten more pages on this subject—next week! My blog is prophecy4i.wordpress.com

Standing on the Bible

Prophecy Update: June 1st 2018

There is a civil war in the United States that mirrors the war going on in the world. That war can be characterized as the globalists versus the nationalists. The globalists like to paint everyone who loves their nation as a fascist or Nazi. Loving your nation is Godly, we learn from the Scriptures that God made the nations for a purpose. Globalism keeps us from Gods purposes for nations. The globalists are for a hierarchy of authority that can tell nations what to do. Brexit and the election of Donald Trump were repudiations of globalism.

The loss of the Judeo Christian worldview in Europe has caused a failure in ethics. When this worldview was rejected it had to be replaced. The replacement has been a disaster. I checked several articles about the loss of the Christian faith in Europe and here are some quotes from those articles:

“The “relativistic” thought that arose after Europe rejected its own Christian roots has created a cultural weakness that has allowed the resurgence of aggressive Islam, warned that the West is squeezed between a radical “post-human” secularist ideology on one side, pressuring for changes to the fundamental concept of humanity, and the resurgent violence of the new Islamic “Caliphate” exploiting this weakness on the other.” It is this radical post human secularist ideology that is giving Islam more rights than Christians. Christians are being attacked by both Islamists and leftists.

EUROPE’S OFFICIALDOM ERASING CHRISTIANITY, “As the Dutch scholar Arnold Huijgen wrote, however, the house is culturally ’empty, The most remarkable thing about the house is that, as far as its account is concerned, it is as if religion does not exist. In fact, it never existed and never impacted the history of the continent. … No longer is European secularism fighting the Christian religion; it simply ignores every religious aspect in life altogether.”

Prime Minister Viktor Orban rails against European leaders’ insistence on mass migration. The head of Hungary was very clear that unless the leaders of Europe chose Christianity again, Europe would be lost. He said, “Christianity is Europe’s last hope.”

Melanie Philips spoke last week at Parkside Church in Cleveland. Her speech was “The War of Our World: The Eclipse of Conscience and Reason.” Her best-selling book Londonistan, about the British establishment’s capitulation to Islamist aggression, was published in 2006 and she followed this in 2010 with The World Turned Upside Down: the Global Battle over God, Truth and Power.

She said that “we live in crazy times. What is blindingly evident in the world is that everything is upside down. They want to bar people from college who believe that a man who has male parts is actually a man.” She gave many examples of this maddening political correctness going on in Great Britain. Of course this is going on in the USA also. Take the example of Black Lives Matter. They are committed to fighting racism but according to Commentary Magazine, they are very anti-Israel and anti-Semitic. “The leaders of Black Lives Matter have written profoundly anti-Israel manifesto in which they accuse Israel of “genocide” and “apartheid.” The manifesto endorses the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement and takes the view that the United States justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliances with Israel. This makes the US complicit in a supposedly genocidal massacre of the Palestinian people.”

Philips said of this war, “It is obvious that since the 1930’s the Arabs have rejected every offer of a Palestinian State at the same time the world rejects the fact that the Jews are the only people who have lived in Israel as their national home land. The Left has told us that all of these people who are at war with the West, they can be appeased. If you tell the truth you are attacked, and it is like the Soviet Union. There is a connection between the Left and the USSR.” Secularism is destroying us from within, the Bible gives us reason and truth and that is rejected.

Why did the West turn on itself with self-loathing? Why is the West in rejection of Biblical values that have given us freedom and truth? Her reason may shock you, it is the Holocaust! Anti-western thinking came because the holocaust was a great moral failure. The holocaust revealed that the West’s belief in itself as the greatest exemplar of moral values was false. It happened in High German culture the pinnacle of reason and values and the enlightenment. Now the West is pushing transnational views which cut out nations and any Christian thought. This view is Marxist.

The worship of Man has given us communism and fascism. The worship of God through the Judeo Christian worldview brings peace and joy. Perfecting the world by man leads to cultural totalitarianism. The West has been transformed, the leftist culture took over the education institutions, the long march through the institutions is what they call it. They have entered the church and taught a false gospel with man at the center of the universe. They push equality, a secular equality, the insistence that there can be no differences; where no one can say that their values are better than any other value. She quoted Professor Richard Dawkins, “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” This is the view of the left.

It is the God of the Old Testament who taught us to love your neighbor and love God. Any factual evidence is rejected by the left because they stay true to their view that man can perfect the world without God. Bringing up God is evil for them. This battle in America has been going on for 50 years. It has been going on longer in Britain. The quote by Richard Dawkins is an example of how the left shows hate in defense of tolerance. The problem with dispatching biblical ethics for a new freedom is that there is no freedom in man. Man is good at enslaving others. The real enslaving is coming from an enemy that has moved within western culture. Jihadist Islam!

Is it all over for the West? As an American, I am profoundly optimistic about the future. I believe that the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote in Britain have deep cultural similarities, a deep desire to free ourselves from those who drowned out the Christian voice and those that loved their nation. It was a repudiation of the anti-western leftists! The battle is on: in Britain they are trying to attack those who voted for Brexit and in our country we have those who hate Trump. Our president is under attack each day because they hate those who voted for him. The news services explain that we are bigots for voting for the president.

Donald Trump believes in America and he will fight for us—he has done so much to protect Christians and has been named the most prolife and pro-Israel president ever.

Jesus said, “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” Matt.24:7
This passage says that although people will be in conflict, there will not be a repudiation of nations even in the end times. Nations which are made up of people groups, who have cultures, will still exist to fulfill this prophecy. Jesus is fulfilling this prophecy now and the Christians are taking advantage of the time we live in. This gives me great hope that a revival is on the way in America! Satan will pervert it, that is for sure but he cannot stop God from saving a great many people. Eventually, the world will turn against the God of the Bible. This backlash against the Left gives us hope.

The rise of communism, fascism, socialism, and secular humanism are all connected to a rejection of the Bible. God has preserved the truth in His people. The rejection of born again Christians and Jews are for the same reason. Israel is rejected because the Bible teaches that God will bring the Jews back to their land. They reject Israel’s claim to the land because they cannot endure the fact that God gave the land of Israel to Jews. The rejection of born again Christians by the left is consistent with their hatred of the Bible or revelation from God. The fact that the United States is built on the belief that our rights come from God, the God of the bible, is hateful to the left.

Although this battle will continue until the Anti-Christ comes on the scene, I believe with all my heart that a revival is on the way. Not a revival that will save the West—a revival that will save people who will be raptured out of this sin sick world. God will then move to accomplish His goal of saving Israel. Romans 11:25 tells us, “for I do not want you to be uninformed of this mystery so that you will not be wise in your own estimation that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in and so all Israel will be saved.” God is accomplishing His promises to Israel and the Church—Praise Him today!
