Jesus said there would be wars and rumors of war but, that these would just be the beginning of the birth pangs that would mark the end of the age.
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. … “All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs).” – Matthew 24:6-8
It would be easy to be quiet, worn down by the pressures of the Antichrist spirit now ruling in America and indeed in the world at large. But, it is at times like this when the body of Christ must rise up and shine, because we alone have light to overcome the darkness that now assails us.
We have just witnessed a historic Blood Red Moon tetrad, which ended in September. The Shemitah, or Sabbath year, also ended and the Year of Jubilee began. Many have wondered if anything happened? Remember, the blood moons are signs warning about upcoming events. Events which may have begun but will not mature quite yet. However, with that Continue reading
Israel Under David and Solomon
Don’t worry about ISIS – worry about God!
“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. – Joel 3:1, 2
1922 UN Mandated Territory
As you can see by the map of Israel under David and Solomon, Israel extends to the Euphrates River in the North and through most of
Jordan in the East. Damascus is only about half way up the map that God promised to Abraham and that David and Solomon conquered. In 1922 the UN partitioned the land into a state for Israel and for the Arabs. That map is shown to the right – later in 1947, to appease the Arabs for their oil, the map was changed to a new UN Mandate, which was

never accepted by the Arabs – they went to war instead, a war which they lost! So, when President Obama calls for Israel returning to pre-1947 borders, they are basically giving the West Bank, Samaria, and Gaza back to the Israelis, though I doubt he understands that! So, we have three groups trying to solve the problem of Jerusalem and Israel: 1) the nations of the world who want peace so they can continue making money off the resources of the Mideast or gain acclaim for their ‘legacy’, 2) the Muslims who can never give back land once taken by Islam and want to destroy Israel and God’s claim to the land . and 3) God who calls it My land (Joel 3:2) and declares that He has set His name in Jerusalem (1 Kings 11:36). Now, I ask you – “Who do you think will win this argument! Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Continue reading
When Jesus was asked about the signs that would mark the end of the age and His return, one of the signs He referenced was the rise in earthquakes.
“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” – Matthew 24:7
The Book of Revelation also identifies some of the signs preceding the end of the age as earthquakes and blood red moons.
“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.” – Revelation 6:12
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. – Joel 2:30, 31
The prophet Isaiah also describes a similar event before the coming of the Lord: “The sun will be darkened in its going forth, And the moon will not cause its light to shine.” (Isaiah 13:10). Both of these events, the sun being darkened (solar eclipse) and the moon turning blood-red (lunar eclipse), are being displayed right now in the Blood Red Moons Tetrad of 2014 and 2015. The fact that the solar eclipses happen on Nisan 1, the beginning of God’s Biblical calendar, and Continue reading
The world today is in turmoil and confusion. The winds of war are sweeping the Middle East; the winds of financial ruin are sweeping Europe; the winds of tolerance and political correctness are sweeping America, England, and Australia; and the little tornadoes of greed, sexual immorality, religious heresy, and pride randomly reap their havoc wherever they will. One thing is certain, there is no peace. Politicians promise hope and change but they are incapable of producing it and their plans only produce more havoc and slavery to the people they represent.
There is only one way to peace and that is through the Prince of Peace – Jesus Christ. The only hope that exists in life is Hope in God because He is the only One who can truly change you and your circumstances. His precepts are the only ones that work for any society. History proves that “blessed is the country whose God is the LORD.” Why is the whole world either hating the United States with envy or trying to immolate it? Because our forefathers knew this principle and built the country on these Scriptural principals. The result was freedom and prosperity. The foundations they built are yet there even though they are crumbling. Continue reading
The Blood Red Moon cycle we are currently in has many aspects to it, all of which deserve our careful consideration. While blood red moons, which occur during a lunar eclipse, happen frequently, four blood red moons occurring consecutively are rare. These are known as a blood red moon tetrad. But, when a blood red moon tetrad occurs on Biblical feast days, this is a very rare happening. And when these blood red moon tetrads occur on the same Feast days of Passover and Tabernacles (Sukkot in Hebrew), this is extremely rare. In fact according to NASA it only happened seven times since the time of Jesus. They are known as Biblical Blood Red Moons. The Blood Red Moon Tetrad of 2014 – 2015 is only the eighth occurrence of this rare event since the time of Jesus’ first coming. Continue reading
