Abraham Accord and Rapture

The importance of Israel in the end times far surpasses all other categories. God is making Israel the focus of world attention. Jerusalem is the epicenter of God’s plan for the end times. As God is focusing the world back on Israel, the world is rejecting Israel. The Abraham Accord signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) highlights the importance of Israel.  Division in the Islamic world over Israel foments tension predicted in the Bible.

The tension regarding the importance of Israel is summarized in the encounter Jesus had in John 4 with a Samaritan woman.

“Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.” John 4:20-22

The Samaritan woman chose a different place to worship God; she was misinformed, not understanding the scriptures.  Jesus said that Jews worship what they know. What do they know? Why is salvation from the Jews?

God taught the way of salvation to us in three key words we learn from the Temple. The three key words are sacrifice, substitute, and satisfaction. God taught that the sacrifice had to be pure. The sacrifice had to be the substitute for man. God would be satisfied with the shed blood, nothing but the blood could atone for sin.

 “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.”

Lev.17:11

God gave us this description of the sacrifices to teach us how salvation is purchased.  

  1. God is only satisfied with shed blood.
  2. God gives it to us as a sacrifice of atonement.
  3. The substitute sheds their blood and applies it to the one making the sacrifice.  
  4. Salvation comes by making atonement for the soul of a person.

God uses economic terms to describe salvation. Redemption is one of those words. Redemption is a purchase, a price paid.

“And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” Hebrews 9:22

This is the principle taught to us by God, without the shedding of blood, no one can be saved.

Here is how it works:

“being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;” Romans 3:24

Jesus paid the price for our salvation by being the substitute, the perfect sacrifice, and the only One that can satisfy God. He shed His blood so that forgiveness of sins can go to the whole world. This is explained in the following verse:

“whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;” Romans 3:25

Notice the important word – faith. Prior to Jesus’s death, God forgave sins when someone came to Temple to do sacrifices by faith. Jesus’s sacrifice was an eternal act meant to fulfill all of the promises inherent in the Temple.

God gave us a prophetic look at Jesus in the sacrificial system. The sacrifices are a picture of Jesus and His work offered in the Tabernacle and the Temple in Jerusalem. What Jews know, that unfortunately many Christians have failed to realize, is that God’s plan for the salvation of nations comes through Israel! The prophets foretold this work in many places. Isaiah 2-4 teaches us that Jesus will sit on a throne in Jerusalem and will judge the nations. Isaiah 24 teaches us that God will judge the whole world before Jesus comes back to set up His kingdom. Jeremiah 30-33 teaches us that God is so committed to the kingdom coming through Israel, that the sun and moon shining daily is proof of his promise!

For the last 2000 years, Christianity has been the channel of blessing to the world for personal salvation. The Church should teach the morals and ethics that can lead nations, but the job of the Church is to preach the good news of the Gospel. God’s intention is to use Israel to set up a kingdom to lead nations, not the Church. The Church has at times tried to take the place of Israel as the ruler and leader of nations. God did not give that job to the Church.

Understanding Jerusalem is the key to understanding God’s plan to bring in His kingdom through the nation of Israel. God is using Jerusalem to cause the nations to make a decision regarding Israel. He prophesied about it in Zechariah.

“The burden of the word of the LORD concerning Israel. Thus declares the LORD who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:1-3

As the channel of blessing, the Church has been fulfilling the Abrahamic covenant to bless all of the nations with salvation. Salvation came from the Jews, because Jesus, as the son of Abraham and the son of David, accomplished this salvation. Being the son of Abraham, Jesus fulfilled what He promised to all of the nations regarding salvation. Being the son of David means Jesus will lead all of the nations as their king.  

The Jews are still looking for the Messiah, the One who is a political leader. They missed Jesus as the Messiah who would bring salvation. Unfortunately, many Christians do not know that Jesus plans on coming back as King of Kings, a political leader who will lead all of the nations, Jerusalem being His capital city! Therefore, Israel prepares the world for Jesus to come and set up His kingdom! This is why we see so much tension and hatred of Israel. This hatred is growing in the Democratic Party.

“Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is the vice presidential nominee.  While the progressive media refers to Harris as “a moderate,” since her election to the Senate in 2016, Harris has racked up one of the most radical voting records in the upper house. She supports revoking all limitations on abortions. She supports harsh limitations on the right to bear arms. She supports banning oil fracking and ending energy exploration on federal lands. Harris refused to speak at the AIPAC conference on any terms. Not only has Harris refused to condemn Reps. Omar and Tlaib for their repeated anti-Semitic statements. Harris warned the Jewish community against protesting Omar’s anti-Semitism saying “the spotlight being put on Congresswoman Omar may put her at risk.” The fact that Omar’s unbridled anti-Semitism was putting American Jews at risk apparently made no impression on Harris. Like Biden and the rest of her party, Harris supports renewing Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran which will put nuclear weapons and billions of dollars in the hands of Iran’s genocidal ayatollahs.” breakingisraelnews.com

It is not only the Democrats who support Iran over and against Israel, it is most of the world. When the Abraham Accords was signed on August 13th, most of the world was aghast because they do not want Islamic nations making peace with Israel.

“The Abraham Accord, unveiled by US President Donald Trump on August 13, outlines bilateral agreements to exchange embassies and ambassadors between Israel and the UAE. The historic “Abraham Accord” unveiled on Thursday has been hailed a huge Bible prophecy moment. Normalization of diplomatic relations in the Holy Land marks a significant step towards the Rapture.” express.co.uk

A British news outlet, mentioning the rapture of the church is stunning. The article mocked the belief of the rapture, but it is a legitimate stand by Christians to link the two events. The reason why is that any peace deal with Israel from Muslim nations increases the likelihood of war which will bring in the antichrist. Islamic nations are divided over Israel as never before. When Egypt signed a peace deal with Israel in 1979, they assassinated the president, Anwar Sadat. When Jordan signed a peace deal with Israel in 1994 it was met with disapproval from the Islamic world.

“Jordan’s signing of a peace treaty with Israel, and other issues, were met with disdain by Syria’s president Hafez Al-Assad. The CIA handed the King a detailed report in December 1995 warning him of a Syrian plot to assassinate him and his brother Hassan.”wikipedia.org

“Israel and the United Arab Emirates agreed to a historic peace agreement, marking a stark shift in the Middle East and a critical foreign-policy victory for United States President Donald Trump. Nicknamed the Abraham Accords, the deal will see the full formalization of ties between the nations, including direct flights between the states, exchange of diplomats and embassies, security cooperation and an economic partnership. This historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders, President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the U.A.E. Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan. All three countries face many common challenges and will mutually benefit from today’s historic achievement.” thetrumpet.com

This signing of the Abraham Accords is crying ‘peace, peace, when there is no peace’. This is especially true in the case of Iran and Turkey. Both of these countries are beside themselves over this peace deal. Both nations want war with Israel and are offended about any move to make peace with Israel.  Saudi Arabia knows that they need Israel in any war with Iran. The Iranians are causing Islamic nations to make overtures to Israel because the Israeli military is so strong. Israel can fight and defeat Iran, so nations want to have a good relationship with Israel for their own welfare.

Abraham Accord Widens Rift between Iran, UAE. The United Arab Emirates on Sunday summoned the Iranian charge d’affaires to file a formal complaint in response to a vitriolic speech delivered the day before by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. In his televised address to the nation, the Iranian leader harshly condemned the Abraham Accord, signed the previous Thursday by the UAE and Israel in which the two countries agreed to normalize their diplomatic relations. According to Rouhani, the UAE committed a “huge mistake” and a “treacherous act” toward the Arab world by signing the pact with the Jewish state.”  themedialine.org

Turkey’s ruling AKP slams Israel-UAE deal as “political suicide” for Palestinians.  The Abraham Accord aims to destroy a two-state solution in the Israel-Palestine conflict, AKP spokesman Ömer Çelik said on Twitter. ahvalnews.com

Turkey is very upset at Israel and the UAE. Turkey wishes to reestablish the Ottoman Empire. This is the problem in the Islamic world. Islam teaches that there are only two territories in the world. They teach that there is the territory of Allah/Islam and the territory of war. Turkey wants to take over Israel and northern Africa because they have to reconquer territory they once controlled. The territory of Islam is not permitted to leave Islam, all true Muslims must fight to reconquer the territory. 

Multiple nations believe they are the leaders of Islam. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, and Turkey all believe that they are the leaders of Islam. This conflict has caused war among Muslims for centuries. Saudi Arabia will be the next one to make a move towards signing some kind of deal with Israel. Could it be that antichrist will use this false peace to bring in his peace deal?

The Abraham Accords teach that Jews, Christians, and Muslims all have Abraham as their father—this should bring peace. An Emirati woman wrote about this very thing:

“I see myself praying at the synagogue now being built in Abu Dhabi in the Abrahamic Family House along with a church and a mosque. These beautiful modern pieces of architecture will be near one another in the same compound, so that a Muslim like me can perform rituals in all three. And I would openly offer my heart and my soul to the roots of this Abrahamic friendship. There was for so long the mantra of “Israel is the enemy.” It was a mantra that people could not break out of and that they believed without proof. These people are now quiet. We need this change in the Arab world. It has taken so long to come. (Sara Al Nuaimi is an Emirati lady, a Muslim and a cultural activist based in Abu Dhabi) jewishpress.com

As Christians, we believe that there is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus is the son of Abraham and the son of David. Our God is the God of the Old and New Testaments, not the Koran! Satan is setting up a lie to deceive the world. Are you ready for all of his lies and tricks? Stay close to the Lord our God and pray like never before.

Christian Zionism

This week I want to focus on the importance of Israel for the Christian. There is a movement called Christian Zionism. This movement began to have traction in the mid 1800’s. Three prominent pastors in the mid 1800’s, Charles Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle, and Horatious Bonar, taught that the promises of God regarding Israel were on the cusp of fulfillment. What is amazing is that they thought God was even then beginning to fulfill His promises to Israel. They believed that God promised to give the land of Israel to Jews in the last days so He could fulfill His plan for the world.

What these pastors saw was a renewal of scriptural teaching regarding the promises of God for His chosen people Israel. They saw God moving Jews back to the land. This movement was called Zionism. Zionism for Jews is simply the desire to return to their own land and have a nation of their own. God scattered Israel fulfilling His judgment, and now He was bringing them back.

‘Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, nor will I so abhor them as to destroy them, breaking My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God. But I will remember for them the covenant with their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 26:44-45

What I appreciate about these men is that they believed the scriptures despite growing up in churches that taught that God was done with Israel. They saw promises like this in Leviticus and believed God instead of church teaching that wrote off the Jews. God says that He will not reject His covenant people. Since the 1800’s Christian Zionism has grown in strength.

From Balfour to Nikki Haley: A Century of Christian Zionist Support for Israel. Christian Zionism is a belief by Christians that the return of the Jews to their Holy Land and the restoration of the Land of Israel is a promise made by God and in accordance with Biblical prophecy. God promised to restore the Jewish people from their exile and good Christians need to help God fulfill his Biblical promise to the Jews, Oren explained to Breaking Israel News. The idea is that God does not lie. The most famous early Christian Zionist event occurred in 1881, when William Blackstone, author of “Jesus is Coming”, advocated for a Jewish state. He collected more than 400 signatures of prominent American leaders on a petition that was presented to then-President Benjamin Harrison. The petition called for the establishment of a Jewish state in the Holy Land.” cufi.org

God is a great and merciful God who worked both to move the hearts of Jews to return to the land and Christians to pray for their return.

“So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires.” Romans 9:18

God was having mercy on the Jews and moving their hearts to return to the land. Christians who had love in their hearts, who loved what God loves, supported the Jews in their return. They also began missions to Jews to show them their Messiah – Jesus! At this time, many enemies of Christian Zionism arose as it is today.

CONFRONTING CHRISTIAN ZIONISM, ISLAMOPHOBIA, AND ANTISEMITISM. Last month, I shared an image on Facebook of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar with the statement: “We Stand with Ilhan. Palestine will be free.” The powerful image centers Congresswoman Omar, a Black Somali-American Muslim woman in hijab, who has been targeted for her critique of the pro-Israel lobbyist group AIPAC. As a seminarian, I have begun to deconstruct my own Christian Zionist beliefs: I am learning that Ancient Israel was not a modern nation-state, the people of Judah were not the Christian colonizers of the Americas, and the salvation of the Israelites does not look like American intervention in the Middle East to protect fossil fuel companies.” presbypeacefellowship.org

This young seminarian has chosen to deny the promises of God and reject what God is doing on the earth at this time. I wish I could say that this is uncommon.  Unfortunately, it is not! This seminarian will be cursed according to Genesis 12:3.

“And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

What do Christian Zionists believe?

  1. God promised to bring Israel back into the land of Israel.  This is the beginning of the last days.  Amos 9:13-15
  2. The world will oppose Israel returning to the land. Psalm 2, Joel 3
  3. It is the obligation of the nations to support Israel in her return to the land. Jer.31:10
  4. God’s covenant with Israel and the land is unconditional, unchanging and eternal. Genesis 17:7-8
  5. According to the prophets of the Bible, we are living in the end times and we will see the nations fulfill Daniel 2, 7, and 9!
  6. The Gog Magog prophecy is on the verge of fulfillment. Ezekiel 38-39.
  7. God will fulfill the new covenant in Israel during the tribulation period. Romans 11:25-27, Jeremiah 31.

“Therefore behold, days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As the LORD lives, who brought up the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt, but, ‘As the LORD lives, who brought up the sons of Israel from the land of the north and from all the countries where He had banished them.’ For I will restore them to their own land which I gave to their fathers. Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen,” declares the LORD, “and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.”  Jeremiah 16:14-16

God is telling us some important facts about Himself in this passage.

  1. A day is coming when He will act.
  2. He will cause people to say a new thing. He compares what He did in Egypt with what He will do in the future.
  3. He says twice that He lives. In other words, He is the One who acts and no one can stop Him!
  4. He will bring Jews back to the land of Israel from all over the world.
  5. He will send both fisherman for His people and hunters. Why these two? Some will come willingly and some will have to come by force.

In 1864, Charles Spurgeon preached “The Restoration and Conversion of the Jews”, a sermon on Ezekiel 37:1-10.  This passage is about dead bones coming together and coming to life.

“He was talking about the people of Israel, and prophesying concerning them; and evidently the vision, according to God’s own interpretation of it, was concerning them, and them alone, for “these bones are the whole house of Israel.” It was not a vision concerning all men, nor, indeed, concerning any men as to the resurrection of the dead, but it had a direct and special bearing upon the Jewish people.  The meaning of our text, as opened up by the context, is most evidently, if words mean anything, first, that there shall be a political restoration of the Jews to their own land and to their own nationality; and then, secondly, there is in the text, and in the context, a most plain declaration, that there shall be a spiritual restoration, a conversion in fact, of the tribes of Israel.” spurgeon.org

Spurgeon was a Christian Zionist. He was very clear that the scriptures taught that God was going to bring Jews back to the land and he saw it happening in his day! Spurgeon depended on the context of the scripture to teach the scripture! This is why I, and many others, believe that the Bible teaches that God has a plan for Israel in the end times! Unfortunately, Christian Zionists are being called heretics for believing that God is restoring Israel.

Christian Zionism: The New Heresy that Undermines Middle East Peace. At least one in four American Christians surveyed recently by Christianity Today magazine said that they believe it is their biblical responsibility to support the nation of Israel. Christian Zionism is pervasive within mainline American evangelical, charismatic and independent denominations including the Assemblies of God, Pentecostals and Southern Baptists, as well as many of the independent mega-churches. It is less prevalent within the historic denominations, which show a greater respect for the work of the United Nations, support for human rights, the rule of international law and empathy with the Palestinians. Christian Zionism as a modern theological and political movement embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism. It has become deeply detrimental to a just peace between Palestine and Israel.” middleeastmonitor.com

J.C. Ryle was another preacher in the mid 1800’s who started a mission to reach Jews for Jesus. He was very passionate to remind Christians of their duties to the whole Word of God. He contemplated an imaginary conversation between a Jew and a Christian who did not believe the promises of God. I found it very enlightening.

“But suppose the Jew asks you if you take all the prophecies of the Old Testament in their simple literal meaning. Suppose he asks you if you believe in a literal personal advent of Messiah to reign over the earth in glory, a literal restoration of Judah and Israel to Palestine, a literal rebuilding and restoration of Zion and Jerusalem.  Suppose the unconverted Jew puts these questions to you, what answer are you prepared to make?  Will you dare to tell him that Old Testament prophecies of this kind are not to be taken in their plain literal sense?  Will you dare to tell him that the words Zion, Jerusalem, Jacob, Judah, Ephraim, Israel, do not mean what they seem to mean, but mean the Church of Christ?  Will you dare to tell him that the glorious kingdom and future blessedness of Zion, so often dwelt upon in prophecy, mean nothing more than the gradual Christianizing of the world by missionaries and gospel preaching?  Will you dare to tell him that you think it “carnal” to expect a literal rebuilding of Jerusalem, “carnal” to expect a literal coming of Messiah to reign?  Oh, reader, if you are a man of this mind, take care what you are doing!  I say again, take care.” middletownbiblechurch.org

I stand with Spurgeon and Ryle that the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Micah, Zephaniah, Zechariah, and Malachi all predict that the Jews will be restored to their land, restored as a favored nation, prosper economically, politically, militarily, and spiritually come to the Lord in an amazing salvation experience! Scripture is absolutely clear that God is moving to fulfill all of His promises to Israel!

I appeal to you Christian to consider the heart of God for His people Israel. Can you find it in your heart to love Israel as our God does? Listen to this verse:

“Is Ephraim My dear son? Is he a delightful child? Indeed, as often as I have spoken against him,

I certainly still remember him; Therefore My heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy on him,” declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 31:20

Does your heart yearn for Israel? Consider our brother Paul who said:

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them (Israel) is for their salvation.” Romans 10:1

Listen to the heart of our God in Romans 11.

“From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” Romans 11:28-29

It is very important for us to realize, Christian, that God loves Israel. He is even now fulfilling His promises. We are so privileged to live in the day that God is fulfilling prophecies written over 2000 years ago! Pray with me for the peace of Jerusalem, for God to give His land back to His people. If God keeps His promises to Israel, He will keep His promise to you! The Rapture of the church is right around the corner my friends, pray hard and be ready for His coming. Blessings to all of you!        www.joemaggelet.com

Apostasy and New World Order

Prophecy Update: Apostasy and New World Order 8/13/2020

Two things are happening simultaneously: the apostasy and the rise of the one world government. These are closely related in history. As the one world government was developing after World War II, so too, the falling away from true biblical doctrine. In 1948, Israel became a nation again after almost 2000 years. It is not a coincidence that the World Council of Churches and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were founded in 1948. It is as if Satan said, ‘Oh yeah God, you can start up your precious nation again and I will start up the final Roman Empire!’

Here is one testimony of a person who left the Methodist Church over apostasy:

“Every evangelical group I’ve known since 2000 has been stocked with former United Methodists. And every story is the same. To find their Aldersgate experience of love for God who justifies sinners, they had to leave the United Methodist Church. To hear preaching that stirs the mind and affections with unshakeable confidence in the Word of God, they had to leave the United Methodist Church. To find theology that would steel them to stand with Jesus and not be swept away by theological fads, they had to leave the United Methodist Church.” thegospelcoalition.

I have seen it over and over again in college ministry. Students come and are saved in our ministry and say it is the first time they have ever heard the gospel. They come from every denomination. Many denominations have either abandoned the gospel or have diluted the gospel to the point that it is not vital to the life of the congregation. Apostasy includes deception by Satan and the false teachers that he raises up!

The great apostasy is a time when Christianity will be attacked, berated, and set aside by people in the church. Two main verses are sufficient to teach this.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.” 1 Timothy 4:1

This is a work of Satan, but it happens on a global scale. We see this trend today as the world gets the ability to track everyone and shape the narrative among the citizens of a nation. Did you ever believe that you could see churches ordered shut down by mayors and governors in the United States? As people believe the lies of Satan, as the churches feel the pressure, they will leave true doctrine.

“I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:1-4

Notice that this verse highlights people from the church looking for teachers who do not teach sound doctrine. This is the heart of the apostasy; it comes from within the church. Sadly, that is what we see today!

“For nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” Matthew 24:7

A one-world government will form out of much conflict. Wars and rumors of war fill the earth as the people of the earth know something is wrong. Many Christians know that we are in the last days. As we watch and pray, we perceive that the revived Roman Empire is on the horizon and the rapture of the church is imminent.

“Despite the best efforts of the world, famine and poverty will not be eradicated. This will seemingly cause the leaders of the world to attempt to take care of those who are suffering in these poverty-stricken areas—which is a commendable motive. Though their motives will be well-intended, it will set the stage for the worst time in human history—the period of the Great

Tribulation.” educatingourworld.

The globalists see the United States standing in the way of their goals. They are using the United States for their purposes and a day will come when they will remove the United States. According to the Bible, neither the United States nor China will be world powers at the time the Roman Empire rises. China thinks that they will replace the United States as the world power, but the Roman Empire will rise again and China will fade. They will play a role later as 200 million troops march from China. Could a war between the United States and China be the occasion for the rise of revived Roman Empire?

“The main obstacle to a stable and just world is the United States.” – George Soros.

“When would globalists ever have another such serendipitous crisis and opportunity to turn 330 million American people into frightened subjects willing to lock themselves in their own homes for the foreseeable future and wear ineffective masks indefinitely? We went from ‘14 days to flatten the curve,’ to house arrest until we accept world communism with few protestations. canadafreepress.

It is important to understand that the Bible is very clear about a One World Government. Here are some important passages of scripture for one world government:

Daniel 2:33 – The statue that Nebuchadnezzar sees has two legs of iron. The Roman Empire had two parts, the two legs represent the Western Empire from Rome and the Eastern Empire headquartered in Constantinople.

Daniel 2:40-42 emphasizes the ten toes. After 2000 years, we are still waiting for the final kingdom that will include ten kings. Daniel emphasizes that the final revived Roman Empire will be strong and brittle. Iron mixed with clay is the metaphor used for this final kingdom.

Daniel 2:43 is the strangest of the verses. It emphasizes that the two substances do not mix. Iron and clay will combine in the seed of men. What does that mean? We have a clue in the scriptures because demons have tried to mix with humans to corrupt the seed of men. There is also a movement called singularity that may play a role in fulfilling this scripture.

“The future will not see us hold or wear technology, but have it directly implanted into our bodies. There will come a day when all humans don’t just use technology, or wear it on their heads and wrists, they inject it into their bodies. Already, the trans-human movement is seeing technology implants gain greater acceptance, but many still feel uneasy about the ethics involved when we attempt to improve our bodies artificially. There are a few brave souls at the edge of the singularity now. Sometimes they even call themselves cyborgs. These are people who have implanted tech directly into their bodies, for a variety of reasons.” heiscomingblog.

Daniel 7:23 emphasizes that this future empire will devour the whole earth. In order to devour the earth, this empire will have to put down all competing worldviews. In order to do that, they will have to control all information.

“There is a reason we are seeing a widespread emergence of “Smart Technology.” And it is being implemented everywhere. Smart Technology is in almost every single thing we buy. Cars, TV’s, drones, phones, appliances, clothes, watches, shoes, you name it, it’s got “Smart Technology.” So, exactly what is “Smart Technology”? In a nutshell, it provides a seamless way of tracking and spying on its users. In conjunction to Smart Technology, we are also seeing cash decreasing and electronic payment methods being implemented everywhere. The idea of a “cashless society” is based upon the prophecy of Revelation 13 which tells us that no one will be able to buy, sell or trade, without a “mark.” In order to track this, we need “Smart Technology.” Tech giants are flooding the markets with cash alternatives, Apple Pay, BitCoins, etc, these are all setting the stage for another prophecy – the Mark of the Beast! But more importantly, these signs are very clear indicators that the “time of the Antichrist” is nearing.” heiscomingblog.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15

“But, we need a place to store all this data. That is one reason why nanotechnology is key to the “beast system.” It allows large amounts of data to be stored in a single place. Smart Technology has been gathering intel for the world-wide beast system. That system will be so robust, that from a single location, the Antichrist, can watch and control everyone on earth. We are seeing the convergence of that technology now! All preparing for the arrival of the Antichrist. Translated, the Greek word “image” literally means “image or likeness,” and that is exactly what a holographic projection is: the likeness or image of a person. A holographic image, could in fact fit the “image of the beast” description. Holograms along with 3D technology are able to project anywhere in the world, and be in many places simultaneously.” heiscomingblog.

The technology we are experiencing today matches all that the Bible speaks about in the last days. A one world government will require this technology for the economic system that can

control all money.

“666 is cryptically referred to in Rev 13:16-18 as the “mark,” “name,” or “number” of the Beast, said to mark the forehead or the right hand of all who buy or sell. Mainstream biblical scholars interpret the Beast as a symbol for the Roman Empire, an image that conveys governmental control and the extended, evil reach of the empire in commerce. Given that Greek and Hebrew letters possess numerical equivalents, “the number of its name” (Rev 13:17) is thus code for a word. The most likely original candidate for the name is Nero Caesar, which yields 666 when translated from Greek into Hebrew.” bibleodyssey.

“Elon Musk’s mysterious Neuralink startup is working on a brain-computer interface that will allow wearers to stream music directly to their brain, the technology entrepreneur has claimed. The firm was working on a “sewing machine-like” device that would provide a direct connection between a computer and a chip inserted within the brain.” independent.news.

Elon Musk thinks that Artificial Intelligence is a threat to the human race. He is trying to merge humans with the best technology. The new idea that he has is Neuralink. As I studied this technology, it merges a person with a computer. This technology will be sold to people as a health answer for people with physical handicaps. Imagine combining Neuralink with Bill Gates nano tattoo?

“Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed what is essentially a hi-tech ‘tattoo’ that stores data in invisible dye under the skin. The ‘mark’ would be delivered together with a vaccine, most likely administered by Gavi, the global vaccine agency that also falls under the umbrella of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The researchers showed that their new dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots… emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone. It requires little stretch of the imagination to see this same tracking nanotechnology being applied broadly across the global economy, where it could be used to eliminate the use of dirty money. Writing earlier this month in these pages, geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar provided a compelling argument that the coronavirus, is “being used as cover for the advent of a new, digital financial system, complete with a forced vaccine cum nanochip creating a full, individual, digital identity. On CBS This Morning Gates told host Anthony Mason that mass gatherings might have to be prohibited in the age of coronavirus unless and until a wide scale vaccination program is enacted.” fort-russ.com.

We see the merging of the one world government and apostasy across the globe. Faithful Christians are merging, saying no to false theology and saying yes to the Bible and the Spirit of God. As that is happening, the nations are merging under the pressure of the plannedemic! The coronavirus is being used to force a globalist mindset which will eventually lead to the final days the Bible predicts! Pray and watch for the coming of the Lord. www.joemaggelet.com

One Word of Truth Outweighs the Whole World.

Prophecy Update: “One Word of Truth shall Outweigh the Whole World” 8/7/20

“So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

John 8:31-32

Last year I observed an amazing sight. I watched Russian President Vladimir Putin give a speech commemorating Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the date of his 100th birthday. The ceremony dedicated a statue in his honor in his hometown. How is it that Putin, the consummate KGB officer, would come to praise a man who did more to destroy the Soviet Union than anyone else did? Putin, who said that the fall of the Soviet Union was the greatest tragedy of the 20th century, was praising the moral, spiritual, and bravest soldier against the Soviet empire.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn is one of my heroes! I read and consumed several of his books because he fought a fight I want to fight. His fight was against the devil and his schemes against truth, family, society, and salvation. I am rereading some of his works because of the communist uprising in our nation. Make no mistake about the desire of the left—it is to lie about everything! They are lying so that they can destroy the church and the United States of America. They are lying about the virus, the vaccine, about civil society, about Jesus, about the church, and about history. God used Solzhenitsyn to bring down the Soviet Union, let us pray that God will use us to stop America from becoming the Soviet Union!

“One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn cited this Russian proverb in his 1970 Nobel Prize for Literature acceptance speech.  Solzhenitsyn brought the reality of Soviet oppression to the world’s attention through his writings, including a 300,000-word history of the slave labor camps, The Gulag Archipelago. In his undelivered acceptance speech, leaked to the world by friends, Solzhenitsyn defined the role of the author or artist as that of truth-teller against lies. In The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn explained why the story had to be told: “When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” Solzhenitsyn inspired a generation of Russian citizens to stand up against the lies of their Soviet oppressors.

“The key to understanding Solzhenitsyn is Christianity – the Russian Orthodox faith that framed Solzhenitsyn’s worldview. Erickson argued that “in a day when secular humanism flourishes among the cultural and intellectual elite, he holds fast to traditional Christian beliefs.” In his famous 1978 Harvard University commencement address, “A World Split Apart,” Solzhenitsyn pointed to the moral and spiritual crisis in the West. He declared that America’s experiment with democracy was being undermined by secularism.” Christian Post

In his speech he said, “A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. Should one point out that from ancient times declining courage has been considered the beginning of the end? Such a tilt of freedom in the direction of evil has come about gradually, but it was evidently born primarily out of a humanistic and benevolent concept according to which there is no evil inherent to human nature.” American Rhetoric.

The left has separated American citizens from their Judeo Christian heritage. In doing this, they have attacked basic truths which make a nation great. Solzhenitsyn pointed out that one of these truths is original sin. To tell people that they are good, have no evil intent in their hearts, are not sinners, is to tell them that every bad thing that happens comes from some outside source. Solzhenitsyn condemned this false teaching. We must do the same! The communist movement we experience today is manifested in Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  These groups propagate the lie of the 1619 project.

New York Times historical initiative, launched in 2019, sparks national conservative backlash. The 1619 Project started with an essay in The New York Times last August that brought renewed attention to a largely hidden history — the beginnings of American slavery more than 150 years before the signing of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Conservatives around the country, including prominent members of the Trump administration and several Republican senators, have adamantly condemned the project in recent weeks.” Atlanta Journal Constitution

Here is what the 1619 Project believes:

  • ”American Capitalism Is Brutal. You Can Trace That to the Plantation.”
  • ”Why Is Everyone Always Stealing Black Music?”
  • ”How Segregation Caused Your Traffic Jam”
  • ”Why Doesn’t America Have Universal Healthcare? One word: Race”
  • ”Why American Prisons Owe Their Cruelty to Slavery” Atlanta Journal Constitution

You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44

The ‘1619 Project’ Gets Schooled. The New York Times tries to rewrite U.S. history, but its falsehoods are exposed by surprising sources. So wrong in so many ways” is how Gordon Wood, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian of the American Revolution, characterized the New York Times’s “1619 Project.” Wall Street Journal

The communist goal in writing the 1619 Project is to get people to fight against it. They want the fight, because they want to use it to destroy people. The media will be complicit in the destruction of the people.

“The Fight Over the 1619 Project Is Not About the Facts: it’s “a displacement of historical understanding by ideology.” The Atlantic

Their ideology comes from Satan who is the father of lies. The uprising started in Portland and Seattle. These two cities are ranked #4 and #7 as least churched and Christian cities in the nation! (San Francisco ranks #1 as least churched and Christian) Is it any wonder that Satan started the communist uprising in a place he already owns?

One of the goals of the 1619 Project is to blame Christianity for slavery. This will give them the right to destroy the church. We see this happening in California and Chicago.

Pastor John MacArthur may face fine, arrest for holding indoor services: MacArthur said, ‘We will obey God rather than men.’  We’re going to be faithful to the Lord and we’re going to leave the results to Him. Whatever happens is going to be what He allows to happen. But He will be on our side because we will be obedient and faithful to His word. We will not bow to Caesar,” he added. “The Lord Jesus Christ is our king.”

“Officials from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health have threatened MacArthur with “repercussions such as fines and even possible arrest” if his church doesn’t comply with state orders, the Rev. Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote on Facebook. Commenting on churches, including megachurches, that have chosen to shut down until January, MacArthur said, “I don’t have any way to understand that other than they don’t know what a church is and they don’t shepherd their people but that’s sad.” Christian Post

Satan does not have the power to attack the church in America unless the LORD gives Him permission to attack. It was the same with Job. When God gives Satan permission to attack, Christians are obligated to stand firm and witness to the Lord’s work among us! Jesus promised to never leave us or forsake us.

“Chicago pastor claims the mayor sent armed police in unmarked cars to bang on the church doors Sunday: It was ‘like the Soviet-styled KGB’ Chicago Pastor Courtney Lewis said he was in the middle of delivering a sermon to his congregation Sunday when he heard loud banging on the church doors. It was the police sent by the city’s Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “Like the Soviet-styled KGB they knocked on our locked doors,” Lewis said, noting that the church refused to let them in.” The Blaze.

“Alexis de Tocqueville pointed out that Americans seem oblivious to ‘first causes’ in history. He wrote, ‘Because Roman civilization perished through barbarian invasions, we are perhaps too much inclined to think that this is the only way a civilization can die … if the lights ever go out, they will fade little by little, as if of their own accord.’” C.S. Monitor.

Deception from the evil one has invaded our culture, society, morals, and church. The decay socially came from the push by Satan for people to obsess over self. The decay culturally came from the push by Satan to redefine education and history. The decay morally came from the push by Satan to advance immorality, idolatry, and abortion. The decay in the church came from the push by Satan to advance a worldly and fleshly view of God and the Bible. The decay our culture experiences mimics ancient Rome. Greece died, Rome died and even the Soviet Union died.  America is heading towards death as a nation.

Miseducating’: Illinois lawmaker calls for ‘abolishment of history classes’—“An Illinois state lawmaker and other local leaders on Sunday called on the state’s Board of Education to temporarily suspend all history teaching in schools until a new curriculum can be developed that doesn’t contribute to systemic racism and white privilege.” Washington Times.

Whether the goal is to defund the police or eliminate history classes, it is all designed by communists to encourage violence and raise up a scapegoat. The scapegoat is white people and especially Christians and Jews. This evil being propagated by elites will overthrow of the United States of America.

The greatest deception is the virus and vaccine narrative. “Veteran Virologist Slams Mainstream Media’s “Misinformation” About An Effective COVID Treatment. On Friday, July 31, in a column ostensibly dealing with health care “misinformation,” Washington Post media critic Margaret Sullivan opened by lambasting “fringe doctors spouting dangerous falsehoods about hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 wonder cure. Actually, it was Sullivan who was spouting dangerous falsehoods about this drug, something the Washington Post and much of the rest of the media have been doing since for months. On May 15, the Post offered a stark warning to any Americans who may have taken hope in a possible therapy for COVID-19.” Zerohedge.

Bill Gates and his merry crowd of population control dictators pushed a narrative that the coronavirus would kill 65 million people. They war-gamed the virus in New York last October at Event 201. When the virus shutdowns happened in March, we were told by Dr. Fauci that 2.2 million Americans were going to die from the virus. Less than 50,000 died! When they saw that corona virus killed less people than a bad flu bug, they had to lie. An example of further deception are death certificates indicating cause of death to be corona virus, when in reality it was something else.  This is done for financial benefits to the hospitals. How long will Americans put up with their liberties being stripped by liars and deceivers? Hard-hearted men, who do not respect truth, run America.

The masks show me that we are no longer the ‘Home of the Brave’, but the home of the fearful. The lockdowns, shutdowns, and masks show me that the spirit of the antichrist rules the land. I have to thank God for the sheriffs around the country who are standing up to the lies and deceit. There have been many stories regarding sheriffs defying state shutdown orders. Many sheriffs refuse to enforce mask orders because they are unconstitutional! The mask orders are a dry run for the mark of the beast. What the mask test revealed is that most Americans will go along and obey the fiction that masks actually protect you from a virus.

God sits in the heavens and laughs at the rebellion. He will send the rapture and judge the earth in the tribulation period. Are you ready for the rapture? Are you ready to go home to Jesus? I hear the four horsemen of the apocalypse riding and they are getting closer and closer. It means that we are going to see Jesus soon—this is BIG!

Prophecy Update: Prophecy Smorgasbord                7/31/20

Jesus said, if they hated Me they will hate you!

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18

The hatred that we see exhibited today in America is part of the move towards global government. To bring down the United States, Satan desires to destroy and persecute Christianity.

You may have heard of the pastors in California defying the governor’s decree regarding churches. John MacArthur came out strong this week with a sermon that told the governor of California that Jesus is the Lord of the Church. Unfortunately, the United States Supreme Court has ruled against the church several times since the virus outbreak. “In a 5-4 Decision the United States Supreme Court has determined that California restricting church gatherings is not unconstitutional, and does not violate the “free exercise clause of the First Amendment. The Ninth Circuit Judges, regarding restrictions against churches regarding the free exercise of their religion, and more specifically, worship services, said, constitutional standards that would normally govern our review of a Free Exercise claim should not be applied.  The last time I checked, the First Amendment does not say, “Freedom of Religion, unless there’s a virus.” CanadaFreePress.com

“Supreme Court denies Nevada church’s appeal of attendance restriction amid coronavirus pandemic. Nevada has placed a 50-person cap on all places of worship, no matter the capacity of the building, as a part of the state’s coronavirus restrictions. But casinos, along with other businesses such as restaurants and movie theaters, may permit up to 50 percent capacity, allowing casinos to grant access to hundreds of patrons at a time.” FoxNews.com Christians are being harrassed all across the nation. My question for Christians is serious: Will you obey God or man?

Jesus said that lawlessness will prevail

 “And every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.” 1 John 4:3

The lawlessness enveloping the country is a result of the spirit of antichrist. Part of this lawlessness is the fact that whether in politics or in sports, the nation has adopted a globalist mentality. Anyone not going along with globalism, progressivism, and the New World Order needs to be isolated and eliminated.  The tower of Babel is the model for Satan. Satan is moving politicians, businesses, and sports teams to reject being American and embrace the New World Order. Satan has the goal of bringing down the United States because the One World Government cannot abide by free and independent Americans. One person standing up to the move towards globalism is Congressman Louis Gohmert.  Last week he confronted the Democrats and put a spotlight on their moves to tear down statues and rewrite history.

“Louie Gohmert Urges House to Ban Democratic Party for Supporting Slavery.  Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced a privileged resolution on Thursday that calls upon Congress to ban the Democratic Party for supporting slavery and the Confederate States of America, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.” Breitbart.com Representative Gohmert quoted the 1860 democratic parties position on slavery.

“The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 stated “that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery . . . are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.”

Gohmert went on to highlight these facts: “No Democrat in Congress supported the 14th Amendment, which gave full citizenship to freed slaves. It passed in 1868 with 94 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.”

No wonder the states Democrats control are attacking Christians and supporting rioters over free law-abiding citizens. Rep. Gohmert went on to say; “As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.”

The progressive mentality comes from the spirit of antichrist, propagates violence, encourages rebellion, and wishes to overthrow the constitution of the United States. Sports is a big part of American culture and the left has done a good job of turning the NFL and NBA into globalist organizations. As the NFL and NBA make statements about social justice issues it becomes increasing clear that they are coming from the communist/Marxist worldview.  

This conflict between nationalism and globalism took center stage when players began kneeling during the playing of the national anthem. Former coach, Mike Ditka had a lot to say about it recently:

‘If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the he– out of the country’ The Chicago Bears legend and NFL Hall of Famer said he opposed players kneeling for the national anthem. “You don’t protest against the flag and you don’t protest against this country who’s given you the opportunities to make a living playing a sport that you never thought would happen,” Ditka told TMZ. “So, I don’t want to hear all the crap.” FoxNews.com

Lawlessness has reached the pro sports teams. The NFL and the NBA are actively supporting the New World Order. The NBA stands with the communist Chinese, refusing to let any team support the freedom loving people in Hong Kong. They have violated the first amendment; restricting free speech because they are afraid of the Chinese Communist Party.

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12

“NBA afraid to stand against China because money talks. National Basketball Association finds itself in a standoff with the Chinese government over a tweet sent by a member of the Houston Rockets front office that was supportive of the anti-government protestors in Hong Kong. The NBA has also long snuggled up to China because it realizes the potential to make billions of dollars in a country that has a growing love of the sport of basketball.” LewistownSentinel.com

The compromises made with the Chinese brought condemnation from many including congress.

“US Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, sent a mass letter criticizing NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the league’s relationship with China. He asked why “Free Hong Kong” and other conservative messages weren’t a part of the league’s initiative to allow players to put a social justice statement on their uniforms in place of their names.” Deadline.com The response from the NBA and Adam Wojnarowski was strange for Americans who love this country!

“ESPN said an obscene tweet by star NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski to Republican US Senator from Missouri Josh Hawley was “completely unacceptable behavior” and promised internal discipline. On Friday, Hawley posted a screenshot Wojnarowski’s email on his Twitter feed, noting, “Don’t criticize #China or express support for law enforcement to @espn. It makes them real mad.”  

Let’s get this straight, supporting Hong Kong and our own police makes the NBA, ESPN, and China real mad so senator, stop supporting police and Hong Kong. Wow! “The company statement came after Wojnarowski tweeted “F**k you” to Hawley, who asked in a tweet and letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver why NBA players were not allowed to put “Free Hong Kong,” “Support Our Troops,” “Back The Blue” and other conservative statements on their shirts.”

In fact, the NBA said they approved 29 messages for players to put on their jerseys and none of them support the United States. One of them is “Group Economics” and this is proof that the NBA is serious about following an international rather than a national mentality. Since Donald Trump became President, the tension between those who want to stay an independent nation and those who want a global government has reached the tipping point. (Thursday night the NBA started their season. The league announced that they will allow the message, ‘freehongkong’ after the games started. This was an attempt to alieve themselves of all of the criticism.)

Defund the police movements across the country are evidence that we have entered the stage of collapse in the country. It is a great example of lawlessness!

Jesus said that Israel will be attacked

“Alas! for that day is great, there is none like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s distress, but he will be saved from it.” Jeremiah 30:7

The tensions rising in Israel are at epidemic levels. Iran suffered attacks every day for the past three weeks. They are beside themselves with rage towards Israel and the United States. Just this week, Israel attacked twice on their northern border.

“The Israeli military on Friday said its helicopters struck Syrian army targets in response to mortars fired toward the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Syria’s state news agency SANA quoted a military source as saying Israeli helicopters targeted three outposts in Syria’s southern Quneitra area with anti-tank guided missiles, causing two injuries and some forest fires. Tension rose this week along the Israel-Syria frontier after a fighter of the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah was killed in an apparent Israeli strike on the edge of Damascus on Monday.” Reuters.com  Using F-16 and Apache helicopters, Israel attacked Syria this weekend killing military leaders from Iran and Hezbollah.

“Israel has reportedly conveyed to international officials that it doesn’t want Monday’s border altercation to descend into a war with Hezbollah terror group. The message also warned that if needed, Israel was ready to deal a “painful blow.” TimesofIsrael.com

“Washington offered to give Hamas $15 billion in aid if it would agree to disarm. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said Monday that his organization recently turned down a substantial aid package from the United States because it would have had to lay down its weapons.” IsraelHayom.com

“Erdogan’s vision: Uniting an ‘Army of Islam’ to destroy Israel in 10 days. An article in a Turkish paper with close ties to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exposes the regime’s desire to form an “Army of Islam” to attack and destroy the State of Israel. The article calls on the 57 member nations of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) throughout the Muslim world to join forces against the Israeli “occupiers” who would then be vastly outnumbered and unable to defend their country.” KehilaNews

God is moving the ball forward to fulfilling His promise to give all of the land back to Israel. The West Bank will soon see war and Israel will move in. This will fulfill the Word of the Lord and all of the social justice warriors will scream ‘unjust’. Is anything God accomplishes unjust? Believing the LORD and His prophetic Word is the right and privilege of all born-again Christian. Doing so will bring the condemnation and scorn from the false churches and social justice warriors. The same people who support the social justice message in America are the same people who want Israel destroyed! The battle lines are drawn.  Where will you stand?

Hatred of Jesus and His people, lawlessness pervading culture, and attacking Israel are the three key thoughts this week. The divisions in America will reveal the sheep from the goats. Trust in the promise Jesus made!

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:27-28
