The Christian Worldview and Current Events

Prophecy Update:

The Biblical worldview is based on how God created the world. A worldview comprises one’s collection of presuppositions, convictions, and values from which a person tries to understand and make sense out of life and the world. We find ourselves in tension with the world.  The tension is between two opposing worldviews – a man-centered paradigm and a God-centered paradigm.  World news comes at us from a non-Christian perspective, thus creating tension in our hearts and minds. This update is going to highlight some news from the last week and interpret it through the lense of a Christian worldview.

NY Times Op-Ed Glorifies Farrakhan March, as Bari Weiss Says Jew Hate Is Times’ Blind Spot. “Today the New York Times ran an oped about the Million Man March and Louis Farrakhan. If you read the oped and knew nothing about Farrakhan, you would think he was a gentleman,” Weiss tweeted. Did the article headlining Farrakhan’s “great feat” and ignoring his anti-Semitism not trigger even “the slightest pause” at the Times editorial page? As Weiss puts it, “they didn’t even *notice* it.” unitedwithisrael.org 

The New York Times Editorial Board believes that they have the right to support Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

“In 1955, Farrakhan joined the Nation of Islam, an African-American movement and organization rooted in elements of traditional Islam and black nationalism. Farrakhan came into the American public light when he began supporting Rev. Jesse Jackson’s bid for the presidency. However, when he praised Adolf Hitler, calling him “a very great man,” Farrakhan set off conflict with American-Jewish voters. He would eventually withdraw his support. He said Jesus and Mohammad “are brothers who come from the same eternal God. “How dare us try to split up the prophets and make them enemies of each other to justify our being enemies … If Jesus and Mohammad were on this stage, they would embrace each other with love. If Moses and the prophets and Abraham the father would be on this podium with all the prophets, they would embrace each other,” he said.” wsoctv.com 

The NY Times supports anti-Semitic and anti-Christian views because these editors are driven by a worldview that embraces secular humanism. The secular humanist view holds that all religions are equal when they are not. God did not give people the right to pursue multiple gods.  

France Reeling From Beheading of Schoolteacher Educating About Free Speech. In an attack that sent France reeling, on Friday afternoon, October 16, in broad daylight, a French schoolteacher was beheaded on a suburban street for teaching his students a required lesson about free speech. Abdoulakh then posted images of Paty’s severed head on his Twitter account along with insults aimed at French President Emmanuel Macron and French “infidels” and “dogs.” Witnesses reported hearing Abdoulakh shout “Allahu Akbar (God is Greatest)!” during the attack.” clarionproject.org 

France cannot deal with Islamic terrorism because they support a secular humanist worldview. The view is that all religions are equal. They cannot bring themselves to stop the march of Islamic culture dominating all other religions. This weakness will eventually lead to internal civil war.  

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

Fired Principal Who Refused to Say Holocaust Happened Rehired. Parents who disagreed with the school board’s decision to started a petition demanding that the Palm Beach County school board reverse their decision. “This is not only offensive … but it crosses the line into a hate crime or an antisemitic incident … This is a slap in the face to all Holocaust victims. We cannot allow antisemitism and discrimination to take hold in the school system,” the petition read in part.” clarionproject.org 

The public school system in America rejected the Judeo Christian worldview in the early 1960’s. This has been a disaster for America. This move to secular humanism gives the right of a holocaust-denier to teach in the American public school system.

The public school system promotes that truth is relative — what a person believes, regardless if it is true or not, is valid! As Christians, we believe in absolute truth. The public schools deny absolute truth. It is absolutely true that Jesus is God and that He is the only way to heaven. This belief is being made illegal in the United States! Joe Biden thinks that Islam needs to be advanced in America.

Joe Biden vows to abolish ‘vile’ Muslim travel ban on Day 1 if elected president. Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, said Muslims were the first to suffer attacks under the Trump administration that led to kids being bullied in school and an increase in hate crimes. Biden said Trump appointed unnamed key leaders in the Defense Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development despite their open Islamophobia.” usatoday.com

Islam is being used as a tool to undermine Christianity in America. The Democratic Party is dedicated to an anti-Christian view of life. This collaborative effort is called the Red-Green Alliance. Red represents communism and Green represents Islam. They have joined forces to drive out the Judeo-Christian worldview from America. The anti-Semitism of the Red Green Alliance will not stop until they destroy any support America gives to Israel.

The Red-Green Alliance and the War against American Jewry, the American-Israel Alliance, and the Foundations of American Democracy. The Red-Green Alliance is an alliance of Islamists and the progressive left, but such an ad hoc arrangement is part of a more comprehensive plan. one may argue that while the recurrence of large-scale antisemitism in American society is shocking, the targeting of Jews and Israel belongs to a larger strategy whose real objective is to destabilize and destroy the institutions of democracy in America. The unholy marriage of the progressive left and far right Islamists is seen nowhere clearer than on university campuses, where the anti-Semitism of the leftist Students for the Liberation of Palestine and the Muslim Students Society encompasses both Jews and Zionists…. Today, on campuses, Jewish students and professors, those who do not support anti-Semitic initiatives, are under attack from progressives and Islamists.” jcpa.org 

Joe Biden and the news organizations dedication to the Red-Green Alliance, which is dedicated to the destruction of Christianity and Israel, reveals the satanic nature of their worldview.  

 “Chilling Warning Issued to US Schools & Universities About Chinese Activities. In an October 9 letter addressed to state commissioners, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos detail how the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has sent curriculum and PRC-trained teachers into hundreds of U.S. elementary and high schools through a program called “Confucius Classrooms.” “Styled as a language and culture program, Confucius Classrooms are in reality an important element of the PRC’s global influence campaign, now reaching tens of thousands of U.S. schoolchildren every day,” Pompeo and DeVos write. Confucius Classrooms was developed by the Chinese government and taught by teachers who are vetted, supplied and paid by the Chinese government (in partnership with American schools and school districts). The letter also noted the tragic circumstance of naturalized Chinese-Americans who fled to the U.S. for academic freedom and democratic values only to find that the authoritarian government of their native country “[has] effectively taken up a physical presence in the halls of their child’s U.S. school.” clarionproject.org 

This move by the Chinese is part of the Red-Green Alliance. It will take brave public school officials to expel the Chinese educators!

The following stories illustrate how anti-Semitism is on the rise everywhere.

BREAKING: Israeli Forces Destroy Two Syrian Military Outposts in Cross-Border Raid. a daring recent cross-border operation that saw Israeli Special Forces destroy two Syrian military outposts in the demilitarized zone between Israel and Syria. Was Israel ultimately sending a message to Iran and Hezbollah to stay away from the Golan Heights?”WatchmanNewscast  

Why Hezbollah’s Growing Missile Arsenal Could Spark a Middle East War. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent revelation of a secret Hezbollah missile factory in Beirut: what do Hezbollah’s ongoing dangerous moves mean for the Middle East and the world?  WatchmanNewscast 

Israeli tries to save the life of arch-enemy Erekat. This is Saeb Erekat and he has been the top negotiator for the corrupt Palestinian Authority since the 90s. He has COVID-19 and is in critical condition. May God touch him and reveal the truth to him! But there is another point to be made here. I want you to see the difference between Israel and the Palestinians, Syrians, Iranians, etc. His situation deteriorated and “[h]e was hospitalized in Jerusalem on Sunday after the Palestinian Authority asked Israel to provide him immediate medical care.” (Times of Israel)

Over the years this man has attacked Israel, sowed seeds of division, supported Arafat and he is a #BDS supporter. He once accused Israel on the international stage of murdering 500 Palestinian civilians, when it fact, it was 50 terrorists, after a suicide bombing during a Passover celebration that murdered 30 Israelis and injured 140 others. The IDF went into the city of Jenin to get the terrorists…and they did. messiahsmandate.org   

This story is particularly important demonstrating clashing worldviews. The Judeo-Christian ethic treats our enemies with compassion. Israel helps her neighbors because the Bible says to love your neighbor. After they treat and help Saeb Erekat, they should put him on trial. The leftist press and members of the Knesset will never support such a thing because the Red-Green Alliance also drives them. It is very disturbing to see this in Israel.

In an act of Anti-Semitism, Scientific study from Ariel University is rejected because author maintains it is from ‘Israel’–An international science journal has rejected a study by an Israeli doctor because she refused to remove “Israel” from the address of Ariel University, which is located in the West Bank and is considered by some as a “settlement.” messiahsmandate.org   

An international movement called BDS – Boycott, Divest, Sanction, target Israel to destroy her economy.  Gal Gadot, who played in the hit movie Wonder Woman, is an Israeli. She received great reviews, but the BDS movement tried to ban her. Now she won the part of Cleopatra, and just because she is Jewish, the BDS movement is attacking her.

In bizarre criticism, Gal Gadot slammed for landing role of Cleopatra – because she is Israeli. With her announcement that she will play Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, in an upcoming film, Israeli actress Gal Gadot was the recipient of some deranged criticism. Criticism ranged from those saying a Jew should not play the part of an Egyptian to others who claim that a “white” Israeli displaced Arab or black actresses who should have gotten the part.”  MessiahsMandate.org

We are facing an election in America. In my understanding of the Christian worldview and Bible prophecy, any vote for the Democratic Party will also be a vote for the Red-Green Alliance. A vote for Democrats is a vote for the anti-Christ world religion, the persecution of Christians in America, and the drive for a one-world religion. The Democrats support immorality and the shedding of innocent blood. How any Christian can vote for this evil agenda is beyond my comprehension of the Christian worldview.

The Democrats have embraced Marxism, which will distribute our wealth evenly among all people. When I read about the Democrats plan for the economy, I cannot help to think of Revelation 13. Revelation 13 describes how the beast, the antichrist, and the New World Order will control all buying and selling worldwide.

The New World Order needs to pull off a coup in America to accomplish their goals. A coup is seizure of power normally from a government. The Democratic Party is part of a movement to perform a coup on the United States.

This election comes down to two opposite worldviews. Either we will be under the Constitution of the United States that operates on the Judeo-Christian worldview or we will be under the New World Order’s globalist agenda to destroy the sovereignty of individual nations.  

In my opinion, judgment is coming on us as a nation as I wrote about in my book, The “I” Judgments: Four Sins That Bring about the Fall of Nations.  There is a sure hope for us individually in Jesus Christ. Let us pray for our country. Let us pray for our president and all those who support him. Let us pray for our enemies. Let us pray that hearts will be softened and those in rebellion will be saved.

One World Government & One World Religion

 I have been meditating on the biblical teaching of the end times. Specifically, the numerous conditions mentioned in scripture that bring in the day of the Lord: things like world government, world economic system, world false religion, and the rise of the greatness of Israel.

The virus is real, but the pandemic is a fiction. This pandemic fiction, portrayed beyond what the facts reveal, warrants controlling all people to bring in world government.  In 2019, the globalists war-gamed how they would use the virus to bring in global control leading to global government.  Event201

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. Revelation 13:11-12

The United Nations is the place that Satan is using to bring in world government and world religion. God said that this would happen accomplishing the purposes and plans of His heart. God wants to gather nations for judgment in the last days and we see it happening. Thank God for those who stand for truth while the globalists march towards their doom.

One World Religion

POPE FRANCIS PUSHES GLOBALIST COMMUNISM AS SOLUTION FOR COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN LATEST ENCYCLICAL. Pope Francis has endorsed globalist communism in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, blaming capitalism for the damage caused by disastrous and unnecessary lockdown policies. He wrote that globalism is the answer to the pandemic, as national sovereignty prevents complete and uniform obedience of the masses during a crisis. Francis shamelessly recited Democrat talking points verbatim during his encyclical, even going full commie and rejecting property rights at one point.” bigleaguepolitics.com   

The religions of the world are uniting under the leadership of the Pope.

Pope Francis Moves to Unite World Religions. Thursday, February 14th, 2019 Pope Francis has met with Islamic leader Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Egypt’s al-Azhar mosque, for a joint document which says “the pluralism and diversity of religions are willed by God in his wisdom.” Traditionalist and conservative Catholics find this recent ‘uniting’ gesture of Pope Francis deeply troubling. Cardinal Müller, the former chief of Catholic Doctrine who was sacked by Pope Francis in 2017, put out a manifesto arguing this declaration contradicts core Catholic teaching. He stated that the Christian belief in the Trinity is a fundamental difference with other religions and to deny the divinity of Christ – even if not directly but by a joint statement suggests it is not as important is and is a position that is anti to Christ.” vision.org 

When Pope Francis signed this document in 2019, he expected all Protestants to agree with his ecumenical movement. God did not will that there would be a diversity of religions in the world. This is the work of Satan! God commanded that all believe in one God who is the creator of the universe. Pope Francis is wrong and many Catholics and Evangelical Protestants have come out to condemn this document. 

Pope Francis pushes the fiction that Muslims and Christians are “brothers and sisters” praying to the same God. The “Document on Human Fraternity” deceives people into thinking that if you say that someone is your brother, they are, regardless of religion. The purpose of all religions is to unite everyone, this is the opposite of what Jesus said.

Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Matthew 10:34

Pope Francis used this false teaching regarding unity to ask for prayer for the virus.

Inter-faith prayers for the pandemic to cease? Moving beyond the perimeter of the biblical faith, Roman Catholicism legitimizes prayers to other deities or religious ideals. For those who have a basic grasp of the biblical faith, this is pretty absurd. Not for Rome, though. Indeed, the Roman Catholic Church organized a “Day of Prayer and Fasting addressed to believers of all religions” (14 May 2020) under the auspices of the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity to pray together. Catholics, Muslims and people of other religions or of no religion were all encouraged to pray to her/his own god or personal ideal for the pandemic to cease.” evangelicalfocus.com 

The problem in American Evangelicalism is that you can believe that all religions are good and that God accepts other religions and still be an evangelical. The term evangelical has been corrupted. A recent survey from Ligonier ministries highlights this problem.

“When asked about the doctrine of God, evangelical respondents were nearly unanimous in affirming that God is a perfect being (97%); that God is a Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (96%); and that God cares about our day-to-day decisions (87%). However, when it comes to whether God accepts worship from all religions, evangelicals are more divided, with 42% agreeing with it and 49% answering “no”.” evangelicalfocus.com 

In the end times there will be a falling away of the faith. That falling away includes redefining Jesus, salvation, truth, what it means to be a Christian, and unity. When these things are redefined it leads to apostasy.

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, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron. 1 Timothy 4:1-2

“Regarding Jesus, two-thirds of evangelicals (65%) affirmed the statement that “Jesus is the first and greatest being created by God”, while 30% do not believe that Jesus is God but instead think he is simply a “great teacher”, which is “very concerning” for the authors of the survey.” evangelicalfocus.com  

Christianity teaches that Jesus is God, not the first created being, and He is the only way to the Father. The left redefined Christianity to mean Jesus is not God and Jesus is not the only way to God. Satan loves the world of religions because it takes our eyes off Jesus and the exclusivity of the gospel message. The Pope, many false Evangelical leaders, and many churches are deceived that unity is better than doctrine. Doctrine is divisive they say…yet Jesus is clear that certain beliefs are false!

One World Government

The one world religious institutions like the World Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches are part of the rise of the One World Government. The desire of these organizations is control of all people on the earth. The rise of the antichrist necessitates the rise of a New World Order. It must be a totalitarian government, because they have to control all people.

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT CHINA, RUSSIA AND CUBA, WITH THEIR HORRIBLE RECORD OF ABUSES, CAN BECOME MEMBERS OF THE UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL? “Electing these dictatorships as U.N. judges on human rights is like making a gang of arsonists into the fire brigade,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. When I think of oppressive, bloody dictatorial regimes that stomp the faces of their citizens into the ground under the heel of steel-toe boots, I think of nations like Russia, China and Cuba. The fact that any of these three brutal countries could become part of the UN Human Rights Council is stupefying, but all three becoming members on the same day? Demonic. But that’s all “par for the course” at the godless United Nations. Did you know that God mentions the United Nations in the bible prophecy? It sure is.” nowtheendbegins.com  

“Therefore wait for Me, declares the LORD, for the day when I rise up as a witness. Indeed, My decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out on them My indignation, all My burning anger; for all the earth will be devoured by the fire of My zeal. Zephaniah 3:8

In America, governors are using the mask mandates to exercise their desire to control people. Virginia, New York, and California are three places I will highlight.

Virginia Forces Christian Ministries to Adopt ‘Government Ideology’ or Pay $100K. Three Christian schools and a Christian network of pregnancy centers are suing Attorney General Mark Herring (D-Va.) in order to prevent Virginia from implementing two pro-LGBT laws that force “people of faith to adopt a particular government ideology under threat of punishment.” nrb.org

Gov. Cuomo: ‘I Don’t Care’ About Your Religion — ‘You Have to Follow the Rules of the State’ Friday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) responded to religious groups filing separate federal lawsuits against him over his new restrictions limiting attendance at religious gatherings amid a spike in cases in some New York City neighborhoods. Cuomo told “CNN Newsroom” acknowledged that it is a “complicated” situation because of different cultural aspects, but said that everyone has to “follow the rules,” no matter their religion.” breitbart.com  

As COVID Protests Continue, Jewish and Catholic Groups Sue to Block Cuomo Rules. A prominent Orthodox Jewish organization based out of Queens and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn announced separate lawsuits to halt restrictions on religious gatherings put in place by the state of New York, just as a third day of protests over the new lockdown orders got underway in Brooklyn.” nbcnewyork.com 

 “California church files for preliminary injunction on Newsom’s restrictions. In a 2-1 decision Oct. 1, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled against Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry, which argues Newsom’s restrictions are unconstitutional because they violate the First Amendment’s clause on free exercise of religion. He instituted a ban on singing and chanting in places of worship and divided the state’s counties into four “tiers” — with Tier 1 being the area where the risk is highest and in-person services are banned.” angelusnews.com  

Controlling the masses is the ultimate goal of the left. Certain beliefs and behaviors will be outlawed. The pandemic fiction gives them their best shot at bringing in a New World Order. Standing in their way are Christians who are praying. God may not be done with America or world missions yet, so we need to be prepared for Trump to win and preserve our freedoms for a little while longer. Let us pray that we will use our freedoms for spreading of the gospel! Here is an article outlining what the left hopes to do next year—let us pray they fail!

After covid, your entire life will be controlled by smartphone apps funded by Rockefeller, Clinton Foundation. As soon as they are ready for full commercial release, a new series of smartphone apps funded and created by Rockefeller and Clinton Foundations, among other nefarious players, will control every aspect of post-COVID life. According to reports, the non-profit trust Commons Project Foundation, part of the World Economic Forum, is set to release three different smartphone apps – CommonHealth, COVIDcheck, and CommonPass – that together will collect, store and monitor people’s health data in order to determine where they are allowed to travel, study, work and live.” dcclothesline.com 

Let us pray that we keep our eyes open to what is going on in the world and ask God to restrain evil so that we can continue to share the gospel so that all might know that He is the Lord.

Current Events History Prophecy Prophecy Updates

Iran and the New World Order

This update will catalog the events of the last six years leading up to the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49.

Prophecy against Elam

Elam: a province of Persia in which stood the capital city Susa. Elam covers the southwestern half of Iran.  Jeremiah 49 prophesies about the future of Elam.

“Thus says the LORD of hosts, behold, I am going to break the bow of Elam, the finest of their might. ‘I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four ends of heaven, and will scatter them to all these winds; and there will be no nation to which the outcasts of Elam will not go. So I will shatter Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their lives; and I will bring calamity upon them, even My fierce anger,’ declares the LORD, and I will send out the sword after them until I have consumed them.” Jeremiah 49:35-37

Since 2014 Iran has made it clear that it intends to use nuclear weapons against Israel and the United States. The Islamic leaders of Iran believe that it is their destiny to rid the world of the ‘Great Satan.’ ‘Great Satan’ is the term they use to describe the United States and ‘Little Satan’ is their term for Israel. To accomplish this goal, the Bushehr Nuclear Power plant will provide the ingredients necessary to build a nuclear bomb.

Iran has 17 nuclear facilities scattered around the country. Most of them are in Elam or are close to Elam. The Zagreb mountain range sits between Elam and the eastern half of Iran. The Bushehr Nuclear Power plant is in Elam on the coast of the Persian Gulf. China and Russia have helped Iran the most developing the nuclear program.  In 2014 Israel was getting very close to making a strike on Iran to destroy its ability to make a nuclear bomb. The Obama administration stepped in to prevent Israel and Iran from going to war.

“One of Iran’s most strategic and vulnerable nuclear targets is the Bushehr nuclear reactor, located in the heart of ancient Elam. The Jerusalem Post quoted Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on February 25, 2014, as saying to German Chancellor Angela Merkel:  The goal is to prevent Iran from having the capability to manufacture and deliver nuclear weapons. I believe that means zero enrichment, zero centrifuges, zero plutonium, and of course an end to ICBM development. Because none of these elements —none of them—is necessary for developing civilian nuclear energy, which is what Iran has claimed that it wants.” khouse.org    

Between 2014 and 2015 the Obama administration worked with many nations to secure a deal with Iran. This deal was very bad for Israel and the Obama administration made it clear that the Israeli position on Iran was not acceptable to the UN, United States, Russia, or any of the major powers. Israel said then and today, that Iran was determined to lie, cheat, and hide the building of nuclear weapons. After the deal with Iran was signed in 2015, many in the Middle East felt betrayed by the Obama administration, including Saudi Arabia. The problems that arose in 2015 are driving the 2020 election.

Trump Upsets Iran Deal

During the election cycle of 2016, Donald Trump ran against the Iran deal issue calling it a bad deal.

“Trump Storms Washington. The real estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate blasts the Iran deal and declares, ‘We will have so much winning if I get elected. “I’ve been doing deals for a long time,” Trump told the crowd. “I’ve been making lots of wonderful deals; that’s what I do. Never, ever, ever in my life have I seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran.” politico.com   

Trump did not officially leave the Iran deal until 2018. When this happened, the UN and whole world came against President Trump. The world acted like this is the most important issue. At the heart of the criticism for leaving the deal, was the anti-Semitic notion that it’s all Israel’s fault that Trump left the deal.

Trump Abandons Iran Nuclear Deal He Long Scorned. May 8, 2018, President Trump declared on Tuesday that he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, unraveling the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor Barack Obama, isolating the United States from its Western allies. The decision, while long anticipated and widely telegraphed, leaves the 2015 agreement reached by seven countries after more than two years of grueling negotiations in tatters. The United States will now re-impose the stringent sanctions it imposed on Iran before the deal and is considering new penalties.” nytimes.com    

Since 2018, the world has tried to get around the sanctions imposed by the United States. Iran is feeling the weight of these sanctions as they have largely been successful. It has made several nations angry at the United States because they lost business in Iran. Most of the European Union countries are against the United States and for Iran. October 2020 is the most important month regarding the nations’ relationship with Iran.

“(January 19, 2020 / JNS) A secret document seized during a raid by Israeli intelligence on a compound in Tehran in 2018 proves Iran was building a nuclear weapon back in 2002, according to an exclusive report by the British newspaper MailOnline. The document forms a key part of a report to be released soon by the Friends of Israel Initiative (FOII), a group of foreign-policy experts and other former senior officials, the British paper reported.”  jns.org 

“Both countries [Britain and France], as well as Germany and the EU itself, knew only too well that, rather than its stated purpose of denying Iran a route to nuclear weapons, the JCPOA in fact paved Iran’s pathway — not just to acquiring nuclear capabilities, but doing so legitimately. The re-imposed sanctions will then leave China, Russia and the European countries with tough choices about whether they observe them or take the damaging consequences to their own trade with the US. As permanent members of the UN Security Council, last week both Britain and France genuflected to their arch-enemies by refusing to support their greatest ally, the United States, in its resolution to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran. The US resolution was of course opposed by China and Russia, both of which intend to sell advanced conventional weapons to Iran as soon as the embargo runs out in October.” friendsofisraelinitiative.org 

“Working against the effectiveness of U.S. sanctions are the relationships that the axis maintains with outside powers. Iran skirts extensive U.S. sanctions, in part, by selling several hundred thousand barrels of crude oil per day to China, with which Iran recently signed a 25-year strategic agreement. Both China and Russia have said they will sell new arms to Iran after the U.N. ban on such sales expires on October 18, 2020, despite the new U.S. Executive Order and other U.S. penalties if they do so. The revenue stream from China enables Iran to support the Assad regime with gratis oil shipments, credits, and investment in Syria’s agricultural and telecommunications sector, and to provide $700 million per year in support to Hezbollah. Russia remains militarily present in Syria, working alongside the Syrian military, Iran-backed forces, and Hezbollah to secure the Assad regime – assistance that works against U.S. pressure on the regime to agree to a political solution that would give Assad critics a role in governance.” thesoufancenter.org 

“US intelligence officials have concluded that Iran prefers a Joe Biden win come November. And why wouldn’t it? Biden has vowed to return to the Iran deal, the nuclear agreement that was forged when he served as vice president to Barack Obama. Trump has accused Iran as well as China of trying to tilt the scales in Biden’s favor. “[The Chinese] are dreaming about [Biden] and so is Iran—dreaming about Joe—and so are numerous other countries,” Trump said during an August 15 press briefing at the White House. “They dream about it because if that happens, they’ll own the United States.” atlanticcouncil.org 

Elam Destroyed

Back to the prophecy of Elam. Elam is in Iran and when God says He is going to break their bow, He means that He is going to destroy their military. Iran is a fierce enemy of Israel and wishes to destroy Israel from the face of the earth. God will instead destroy Iran. Since the bulk of the nuclear facilities of Iran are in the area of Elam, it makes sense that God will take out this part of Iran. Iran is also the center of Shiite Islam. Shiites want to conquer the world for Allah.

“Jeremiah records in verse 35 that God is going to break the bow of Elam which means its military power. In verse 36, the prophet states,

‘And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven…’

This is the first time the term “Four winds” is used in the Bible. Later the Prophet Daniel uses this expression . It means fierce judgment. God is going to bring judgment from every angle and drive them off the land. A special judgment is decreed against Elam.” rapturenotes.com 

God uses the ancient names of Iran: Elam, Persia and Media.  Iran was the name given to Persia in the 20th century. In the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39 and Jeremiah 49, we see Elam, Persia and Media (Iran) have a lot of influence in the Middle East.

Today, Iran is trying to control the entire Middle East with proxy groups ruling in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and Gaza. Iran’s goal is to conquer Saudi Arabia and Israel.

When Jeremiah wrote this prophecy, he identified the timing of his writing. He wrote it during the reign of Zedekiah, the last king of Judah. This is the same time period when Ezekiel wrote chapters 38-39 — the Gog Magog Prophecy.

God is going to destroy Iran for the hatred they have against Israel. Ezekiel tells us that God will protect Israel from Iran, Russia and the coalition of nations coming to war with Israel.  

In 2010, the Russians loaded the Bushehr Nuclear Power plant with fuel rods and that made attacking the plant very dangerous. A nuclear disaster on the Persian Gulf would harm all of the countries situated on the Persian Gulf. The prophecy says that God will disperse the Iranians to all of the nations. This has not happened yet, but most likely, it will include people fleeing a nuclear disaster.

God says He is angry. Could the Gog Magog war be part of the anger?

Why is God angry? The kings and princes of Iran have something to do with the anger. Today, anti-Semitic groups of angry Iranians, published a nine-point plan for destroying Israel. God will stop these hateful people.

In Western Africa and Iran, God is bringing a revival.  Many Muslims are coming to Jesus and the church is growing. We can thank God that many are being saved before these prophecies are fulfilled. The lineup of prophesies regarding nations in the Middle East include:

  • The destruction of Damascus – Isaiah 17
  • The destruction of Egypt – Isaiah 19
  • The destruction of Iran – Jeremiah 49:34-39 and Ezekiel 38-39
  • The saving of Israel from the surrounding nations – Psalm 83

All of these prophecies may happen before the Tribulation.  We live in very interesting times! There is good news in the prophecy concerning Elam.

“Then I will set My throne in Elam and destroy out of it king and princes,’ declares the LORD. ‘But it will come about in the last days that I will restore the fortunes of Elam,’ declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 49:38-39

Elam, Iran, and the New World Order

I am seeing a convergence of events that bring together the prophecies regarding the Middle East and the New World Order. Here are a few articles that deal with that convergence.

Pope Francis Pushes Globalist Communism as Solution for COVID-19 Pandemic in Latest Encyclical. Pope Francis has endorsed globalist communism in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, blaming capitalism for the damage caused by disastrous and unnecessary lockdown policies. He wrote that globalism is the answer to the pandemic, as national sovereignty prevents complete and uniform obedience of the masses during a crisis.” bigleaguepolitics.com 

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò: Deep State is Working With “Deep Church” to Transform Catholic Church into Spiritual Arm of New World Order. The Deep State, Trump’s sworn enemy, is joined by a Deep Church that spares no criticisms and accusations against the incumbent President while winking indecorously with Biden and BLM, slavishly following the narration imposed by the mainstream. It matters little that Trump is openly pro-life and defends the non-negotiable principles that the Democrats have renounced – the important thing is to transform the Catholic Church into the spiritual arm of the New World Order, so as to have an imprimatur from the highest moral authority in the world, something that was impossible with Benedict XVI.” bigleaguepolitics.com 

Liberal Media in August 2019: Proud Boys are Right-Wing Latinos… Liberal Media in Sept. 2020: Proud Boys are White Supremacists. The Democrat media needed a new bogeyman to smear and attack President Trump so in the past year the Proud Boys have become “rightwing white supremacists.” thegatewaypundit.com   

These last three stories unite over the desire of the deep state to destroy anyone or anything that stands in the way of the New World Order. The globalists use Iran the same way the Pope uses communism or the major news networks use racial division. Globalism is on the rise because the antichrist must rise soon to fulfill Bible prophecy. Jesus said that He would never leave us or forsake us—hang in there and trust in the Lord!

Prepare for War

Prophecy Update 

What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?   James 4:1

Our text reveals that war begins in the heart and soul of the people. A war exists inside of each person as each navigates life. Because of the sin of Adam, God cursed all mankind.  Every person has a sin nature. This internal war breaks open in relationships resulting in quarrels and conflicts. What happens when the quarrels and conflicts happen on a national level?

The word ‘war’ appears 228 times in the Bible. Since the ‘last days’ is described as a time of war, I want to focus on the rising conflicts in the update. War is inevitable because of the fallen nature of mankind. Jesus said it like this:

“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.” Matthew 24:6

First, let us deal with the touchy subject. Is God for war? The book of Numbers starts with the directive from God that each tribe is to choose men, 20 years old and older, to prepare for war. God was preparing His people for war in their future promised land. God told David that He trained his hands for war. God conducted a war on the Egyptians:

“Has any people heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard it and survived? Or has a god tried to take for himself a nation from within another nation by trials, by sign and wonders and by war and by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm and by great terrors, as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?” Deuteronomy 4:33-34

God describes the ten plagues as conducting war on the Egyptians. There are hundreds of verses like this in the Bible. God sends war, prepares for war, fights wars, and tells us to expect war! Many nations have experienced the wars God sent, the Egyptians, Assyrians, Syrians, Moabites, Edomite’s, Babylonians, and soon America! God prophesied this:

“Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, this is the word of the Lord—if I bring a sword upon a land [there is God taking responsibility for bringing war to a people] and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman and he sees the sword coming upon the land and he blows on the trumpet and warns the people, then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head.” Ezekiel 33:2

According to this verse, God sends war and people are responsible for their response. As a watchman on the wall, I want to make sure that everyone understands that war is coming to America. It is not a question of if it is coming, it is a question of when! The protective hand of God has been removed from cities like Portland and Seattle. The riots experienced in these cities represents asymmetrical warfare that China, Russia, and Iran are using against the United States of America.

Asymmetrical warfare is the tool used by nations against the United States in their total war campaigns to bring down the Trump Administration. God is a warrior and He sends wars by His own righteous hand. There is no such thing as a just war, because all wars include something of the judgment of God on the participants. All wars, even defensive wars, represent a judgment from God. This means that America needs repentance as part of their war planning! Only God can deliver us from the asymmetrical warfare we are experiencing.

“The LORD is a man of war; the LORD is his name.” Exodus 15:3

The Bible indicates that there will be an increase of wars and rumors of wars in the last days leading up to the Tribulation period. Since wars and rumors of wars have been happening for thousands of years, what makes this time so special? The increase of wars are directly tied to the increased ability to travel and send information. The fulfillment of these prophesies were not possible prior to the 20th century. In fact, it has only been possible since the 1990’s.  

War with Russia

Russia has adopted an asymmetrical warfare plan called ‘Hybrid War.’ China is the model for the Russian change in war doctrine against America. Both China and Russia are together attacking America everyday through a variety of means, including computer hacking, stealing information, disinformation, lying, spying, infiltration, and recruiting. Some American citizens actively work for Russian and Chinese proxy groups. Chinese propaganda drives half of the governors of our country, which makes them traitors to the Constitution. A nation divided against itself cannot stand. If you are wondering why cities allow riots and destruction, look no farther than the asymmetrical warfare waged against the country. Why is it that all of these cities are run by Democrats?

“Hybrid war, is a set of activities below the level of conventional conflict. But Russia includes significant conventional conflict in its conception and execution of hybrid war. If the US continues to focus on deterring the kind of war Russia does not intend to fight while underestimating the role military force can and must play in preventing Moscow from accomplishing its aims through hybrid war, then the US will likely suffer serious strategic defeats even as its defense strategy technically succeeds. The Kremlin is even now waging a hybrid war against the United States. The Kremlin assesses that hybrid wars already dominate 21st century conflict and will continue to do so. The Kremlin believes it must adapt to win this struggle, profoundly shaping Russian military development and assessments of the future of war.”  understandingwar.org 

Russia has increasingly beefed up its air defense systems and information warfare abilities in Syria since 2016. The air defense systems include the ability to attack and destroy airplanes in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. This is significant for their eventual war with Israel. The Eastern Mediterranean is the source of Israeli gas fields that are coming on line to ship gas to Europe. It is important for Russia to have complete control of the Syrian air space for the future war with Israel. Another step towards this goal was accomplished this month.

Syria Warning Update: Syrian Regime Offensive on Idlib May Be Imminent. “Key Takeaway: Turkey may have agreed to cede control of territory in southern Idlib to pro-Assad forces in a meeting with Russia on September 16.  If the reports of a deal are true, a pro-Assad offensive is likely imminent. Turkish-backed opposition forces and al Qaeda linked elements may fight back against advancing Russian-backed regime forces even without Turkish support. Turkey is most likely to cede the territory south of the M4 highway, a zone in which Turkey had already agreed to allow Russian patrols in March but retained forces, including artillery units, that precluded a full regime takeover. Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov expressed confidence that Turkey and Russia would succeed in “liberating” Idlib Province from terrorists in a press conference on September 7.”  iswresearch.org 

This also impacted American troops in eastern Syria. In fact, Russian and American troops have fought in the last few weeks.

US beefs up force protection in Syria after run-in with Russia. “The military has sent mechanized infantry and other new assets into Syria after a confrontation with Russian forces last month injured several U.S. troops. In a statement Friday, U.S. Central Command (Centcom) announced it had deployed Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Sentinel radar, as well as increased the frequency of fighter jet patrols over U.S. forces, in order “to help ensure the safety and security of coalition forces.” thehill.com 

One of the Russian goals in its war with the United States is to destroy the NATO alliance. I have written a lot on this subject the last few years. This has happened because the Europeans and the left in America are willing to do anything to appease evil. A fascinating article called “The ‘Nevertheless’ Club and the World” highlights this problem:

“In November 1938, a few days after Kristallnacht, the French ambassador to Berlin Robert Coulondre reported the event to Paris, describing the savagery in the heart of Europe, concluding that “nevertheless [néanmoins in French] one should understand German grievances against the Jews.” For the past few years, hosting the Islamic Republic’s Foreign Minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, has developed into an annual ritual of the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). This year, however, CFR’s invitation to Zarif raised a storm of protest beyond the bubble in which American foreign policy junkies play games, indulge in fantasies, and address their principal task, which is fund-raising. What triggered the storm was the murder in a Tehran prison of Navid Afkari, a popular wrestling champion and a pro-democracy protester. The killing sent shock waves throughout Iran, including even among some elements of the Khomeinist establishment. The CFR director Richard Haas, a former State Department official, published this tweet:

“Like many others I condemn the execution of Navid Afkari. I also hold the view that human rights constitute an important dimension of US foreign policy. Nevertheless, I believe that CFR is correct to meet with Iran’s foreign minister.” gatestoneinstitute.org  

The CFR is one of the American groups that always adopts the views of our enemies. They appease the evil of China and Russia against the United States. When it comes to China and Russia, the neverthelesscrowd appeases all that those two countries are doing in the United States. It is disheartening to see that major news outlets adopt the views of our enemies and create confusion and hatred of our own country.

War with China

“China’s moves are so bold that the Pentagon has reoriented its entire worldview. Friction across the region is ripe for escalation — from the long-standing Chinese threats against Taiwan to the the U.S. freedom-of-navigation operations in the South and East China seas that so irritate the Chinese. And, of course, those seas are heavily trafficked by ships, both military and commercial, adding more potential for confrontations. Other triggers could include China’s land claims across the region, its growing economic might, shifting regional alliances and the ever-present tensions on the Korean peninsula. There’re also growing concerns about cyber warfare and space.”  dothaneagle.com 

“January 28, 2020 Charles Lieber, head of Harvard University’s chemistry department, is charged with lying about accepting money from the Chinese government while receiving $15 million in grants from US agencies. A pioneer in nanotechnology, Lieber is the highest-profile academic to be arrested in connection with Chinese-American technological rivalry. July 24, 2020 The Trump administration orders the closure of China’s consulate in Houston, “in order to protect American intellectual property and American’s (sic) private information,” alleging that the consulate is being used to coordinate industrial espionage against the US. China closes the American consulate in Chengdu in retaliation.” technologyreview.com 

Explain the Chinese spy, Sen. Feinstein. “Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. Think it would cause a political firestorm? Well, this month we learned that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an “office director” on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to China’s Ministry of State Security through China’s San Francisco Consulate.” washingtonpost.com   

The FBI arrests several Chinese spies a year; many more go undeterred in nefarious activity. Our country is over run by Russian and Chinese spies but there is no will to hunt them down and evict them.

Here Are 4 Potential Hotspots Where The Next World War Could Erupt At Any Time.

“China vs. USA:  China and the US are unquestionably at odds with one another. China has also increased its aggression against its Asian neighbors in the east, most notably Japan and Vietnam. Chinese friction with Japan is perhaps the most well known, and it centers around the Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu in China). Also, China is attempting to extend its borders in the South China Sea by creating artificial islands to stretch its maritime claims. The Chinese response to US sanctions has come in the form of traditional military tactics and preparing for “unrestricted warfare” with the United States. In other words, war with no rules.” zerohedge.com

Armenia against Azerbaijan, Turkey against Greece, and Russia against the Baltic States are potential wars brewing right now in significant ways. The Chinese military is so aggressive that the big three from Europe made a statement about China’s behavior. It is very signigicant because Europe has appeased China. Here is the quote:

“The Europe Big Three said China’s exercise of its alleged “historic rights” in the disputed waters does not align with international law. Britain, France and Germany, as states parties to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, urged that the integrity of the Convention needs to be upheld.” youtube.com 

What is so concerning to military planners is that China is openly talking about attacking the United States and declaring they will destroy us. This type of talk historically has led to open warfare. China is upset that Trump ordered the rapid military escalation of weapons on Guam, Wake Island, and Papua New Guinea. China ordered a simulation of the destruction of Guam. This escalation of war talk has not calmed down as of this week, but has intensified. As Christians we must recognize that there are just and unjust elements in every nation’s conduct of war. We must back the just elements of fighting, God always has a just reason for bringing war—will we be on His side?

Abraham Lincoln illustrated this in the second Inaugural Address:

“It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”(Matthew 18:7) If we shall suppose that American Slavery is one of those offences which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South, this terrible war, as the woe due to those by whom the offence came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a Living God always ascribe to Him?  ourdocuments.gov

America’s sins have led to the current troubles and internal war.  All of us are responsible, as Lincoln rightly observed during the Civil War. As such, we should determine to confess our sins and pray for the cleansing of our nation by Jesus’s blood. The nation is divided because we have forgotten God. If Trump wins the vote in November, we will see more conflict. Prepare for the conflict by praying with me for revival!
