The Sign of Taurus (Shur)

In my last article, The Sign of Eclipses, when referring to the seven year period between the two eclipses, I said, “This also coincides with the seven years it takes Jupiter to reach the Horns of Taurus after leaving the womb of Virgo, which I will write about in my next article.” In this article I will write about this and introduce it with this video.

The sign of Revelation 12 received much attention in 2017, but, it also began the countdown to another sign which may have disastrous implications for the world – the sign of Taurus, the Bull. When the planet Jupiter (the King Planet) leaves the womb of Virgo, it begins a seven year year journey to Taurus, where it meets the planet Mars in the horns of Taurus. The Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which taurus_mars_jupitermeans the coming Judge. Mars, in Hebrew, is the red one or the Son of Man. Held within Taurus is a star cluster known as the Pleiades, which means the Congregation. So the meaning of this constellation is “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth”.

This meeting of Jupiter and Mars in the horns of Taurus will occur August 13, 2024, which is the 9th of Av, the Jewish date of disaster when both of the Temples were destroyed. The time between when Jupiter left Virgo to August 13, 2024 is exactly 7 years. The obvious meaning is a clear warning of the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It also is a warning of the soon coming of tribulation.

The year 2017 began many things happening, politically and spiritually. The first Covid19 cases likely occurred in Wuhan China in late 2017 or early 2018 according to a Epoch Times article. This crisis alone has led to draconian governmental actions which rob people of their God-given rights. It also marked the ramping up of left-wing radicals to undermine and get rid of not only President Trump but, also get rid of conservatives, especially of the Christian kind! Eventually leading to edicts to close Churches but not Walmart. Even to the forbidding of singing and worshipping!

Left-wing groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa began their march  against law and justice and proponents of Critical Race Theory came out of the educational closet into full view. Parents are only now becoming aware of their venom, four years later. In government the socialist-communists have even taken over the Democrat Party and are proceeding to destroy this country by spending it into bankruptcy and allowing illegal immigrants to flood our southern borders.

God has said “judgement will begin with the House of God” (1 Pet. 4:17) and the church has not escaped. Rather than stand on God’s word for truth, much of the Church caved to governmental demands and closed their doors to receive government money. And now, when an experimental drug is being forced on us posing as a vaccine, many of them are falling into the ‘party line’, so to speak. Even though there are an abundance of scientist and doctors warning against it, they are swallowing the so-called Health industry’s line, even though the health industry is making billions of dollars on it, while at the same time restricting those proven drugs that can help, such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine!

We are now halfway through Jupiter’s circuit to the Horns of Taurus and we are shocked at how fast things are changing. Canada is already jailing Ministers who open their churches and that is beginning to happen in the United States as well. As people are losing their jobs for refusing to be vaccinated with an experimental drug, as a Democrat president pulled our troops out of Afghanistan leaving hundreds of Americans behind under terrorist control, and as a Democrat controlled congress is passing laws that are restricting our Constitutional rights, what will be next?

yellow vaccine cardThe nation of Israel is demanding that all it’s citizens be vaccinated and is enacting Nazi-like measures on them, forgetting the lessons they learned in the holocaust. It is reported that the CDC is even giving a yellow card showing proof of vaccination to international travelers- don’t they remember the yellow stars the Nazis used on Jews? If so many, Jews included, can forget so easily and accept the shot, will they just as easily accept the mark of the beast when it comes? Is a little fear all it takes? When Jupiter arrives in Taurus, it will be the 9th of Av, historically a bad day for Jews – so what calamity will it bring for them?

So, what exactly does “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth” mean for us? It seems unlikely that it means Jesus actually comes in the rapture, after all, the Jewish Temple is not yet built and the Antichrist has not yet appeared. But, it could mean that Jesus once again comes in the Spirit to begin judgement on those who have been fighting Him. Many current prophetic voices have been saying as much today. It could mean that the Holy Spirit is about to call out the remnant of believers who believe the word of God and stand on it and start binding the evil spirits and demons that are behind those who war against us –

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” – Luke 10:19

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Rom. 8:37-39

It could mean that those claiming to be Christian but are not are about to be exposed; or Joe Biden and his company and Republican leaders who are part of the Swamp are about to be judged and replaced; or that the Supreme Court and the Judges of the land are about to be judged and thrown out; it could mean that those who control the Health system will be judged and found to be fraudulent and sold out to money; or it could mean that the social media industry and all its collaborators in the media are about to be exposed. It could mean that righteousness and truth will once more be the foundation of the Church and that the Church will once more wield the Rod of Moses and speak with the voice of Elijah.

Or, it could mean that we are nearer to the end than we believed and the Lord is indeed coming to judge the earth.

The Fire of Fear

In the wake of the Afghanistan debacle, the news is filled with nothing but that, I felt we must be directed back to our Scriptural foundations. The Apostle Paul, no stranger to disasters, gives us some good advice –

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Phil. 4:6, 7

horse stampedeNotice, his first word is “Be anxious for nothing” and what have we been bombarded with for two years? The Covid19 virus! But, the main element of attack has not been true information or facts, it has been fear! So the population has been like a wild herd of animals running from the smoke of a fire. Now, in Israel, one of the most vaccinated countries in the world, over 80% of those vaccinated are coming down with Covid19 and the Delta variant! and why do the vaccinated still have to wear masks? Doesn’t the vaccine protect one? There have been so many flip-flops on the mask issue that one doesn’t know who to believe, except it is probably not the CDC or WHO! It is much easier to take Paul’s advice and be afraid of nothing.

Paul’s next words are equally instructive.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. – Phil. 4:8

Paul places great emphasis on the truth, mentioning it first. In fact Jesus proclaimed, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32). Later in 2 Thessalonians, Paul further emphasizes the importance of the truth –

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2 Thes. 2:9-12

So, we see that truth is a life or death matter! Jesus also said, “in the mouth of two or three witnesses a thing is confirmed” – (Matt. 18:16). But, how are we to judge if those with opposing views (many doctors and medical experts) are shut down and not allowed to be heard? It simply forces one to ask – Why? Is what they are saying true?

This Democrat Administration has not given us much truth as of late. All who have watched the news have heard the lies that Joe Biden has told over the Afghanistan withdrawal and the revelations that his top generals and intelligence officials have placed their trust in the Taliban – even giving them a list of Americans and Afghanistan helpers left in the country? Who could trust leaders who pull out troops, close key airports, and leave advanced weapons for the enemy, before safely extracting American citizens?

Then there is the debacle at our Southern Border, letting everyone through, without verification, without health checks, and also without Covid19 vaccinations, I might add. And then the one in the Administration placed in charge of it all, Kamala Harris, is missing for months! I fully expect the Democrat controlled House to next pass a bill allowing them to vote! There is no truth in this Administration, but, there is plenty of bondage! Like Jesus said, if the truth will set us free, then the lack of truth will place us in bondage.

But, the word of God also has the answer to these issues –

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. – Gal. 5:1

We, the people yet have the power to vote and an election is coming up soon. Don’t let big money and the news media rob you of truth! The Democrats are proven liars – vote them out! And then pray as Paul advises –

“but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”

and the Peace of God will once again reign in the land.

Things are about to Happen-part 4

rev 12 and planet alignmentJesus warned of “birth pangs” that would announce His second coming.

“But when you hear of wars and commotions (riots and revaluations), do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:9-11

Beginning in 2010 strange things began happening: birds started falling from the skies for no apparent reason, fish began washing upon on the shores by the thousands and turtles as well, cattle and dear began dropping in the fields, and many rivers began turning blood red, and then strange booming sounds began happening all around the world and from the ground. Scientist were at a loss to explain why. Many of these signs have continued to this day.

Then it was discovered that the earth had shifted on its axis. This is causing all sorts of strange weather patterns as the following video shows.

God is not only trying to get our attention with these signs. He has also been giving us heavenly signs in the moon and the stars. Let me remind you of the Blood Red Moons that began in 2014 and 2015 on the Biblical Feast days of Passover and Tabernacles. I have summed up their meanings in my article The Blood Red Moons Revisited p5

Then the Revelation 12 sign of the Woman in Heaven was fulfilled in September of 2017. This sign concerning the constellation Virgo was fulfilled September 23, 2017 first the first time in 7000 years. I have written about it in my article Signs Point the Way. This sign contains many hidden prophesies as well, not the least of which involves President Trump. It also predicts the soon coming tribulation Jesus spoke about. virgo-note-1

But, it also began the countdown to another sign which may have disastrous implications for the world – the sign of Taurus, the Bull. When the planet Jupiter (the King Planet) leaves the womb of Virgo, it begins a seven year year journey to Taurus, where it meets the planet Mars in the horns of Taurus. The Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which taurus_mars_jupitermeans the coming Judge. Mars, in Hebrew, is the red one or the Son of Man. Held within Taurus is a star cluster known as the Pleiades, which means the Congregation. So the meaning of this constellation is “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth”. This meeting of Jupiter and Mars in the horns of Taurus will occur August 13, 2024, which is the 9th of Av, the Jewish date of disaster when both of the Temples were destroyed. The time between when Jupiter left Virgo to August 13, 2024 is exactly 7 years. This is, I feel, a clear warning of the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It also is a warning of the soon coming of tribulation.

Whatever your interpretation of these signs are, you will have to agree that Jesus’ saying “and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” has been happening and is evidence of another ‘birth pang’.

As we consider the events mentioned in parts 1-4 of Things about to Happen, I am praying they will serve as an warning cry to awaken us and get our houses in order.

Preparing to Enter Rest

Big-Dipper-Littel-DipperIn the Book of Genesis when God created the heavens and the earth in six days, He rested on the seventh day and called it a Sabbath. But many have thought that God stopped working and that is not true, He just rested from the Creation. Jesus said this to the Pharisees when they accused Him about healing on the Sabbath.

“So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him. In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”– John 5:16, 17 (NIV)

What is God working at? To establish and perform His word. He has said, “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isa. 55:11).

Do you remember the story of Jehu? God raised him up to fulfill His word to Ahab given through Elijah that none of Ahab’s house or those who followed him would remain alive on the earth. After Jehu had Ahab’s 70 sons killed, he spoke these words –

“Know, then, that not a word the LORD has spoken against the house of Ahab will fail. The LORD has done what he announced through his servant Elijah.” – 2 Kings 10:10

Jehu then proceeded to capture and kill all the priests and prophets of Baal in the land! Now this may seem to be bloody and radical to you but remember the word of the Lord, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb. 10:31). Scripture says that on the Day Jesus comes back, the sword of His mouth will slay all the wicked and burn them up. The sword of His mouth is His word! 

“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” – 1 Thes. 1:7-10

Notice when the Lord Jesus returns (is openly revealed to the world), He will do two things: 1) He will give rest to those alive and to those who have died and 2) He will punish with everlasting destruction those that rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the verse before  this, Paul is speaking about those who are suffering from persecutions and tribulation in patience and he declares, “Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you”. Paul is speaking about the great tribulation they will go through. He is saying God will give rest to those who are alive and to those who have died in the Lord Jesus. This is exactly what Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians –

“For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain (Strong’s: to survive) unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” – 1 Thes. 4:15-18

Worshiping_the_golden_calfYes, God is going to honor His word, all of it. He has promised us rest. But remember those who escaped the trials of Egypt could not enter that rest because of unbelief –

“So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” – Heb. 4:1, 2. 

So, don’t give up, persevere, the Lord is not done working to fulfill His word, all of it. God has also said –

“For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, And her salvation as a lamp that burns. The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, And all kings your glory. You shall be called by a new name, Which the mouth of the LORD will name.” – Isa. 62:1, 2

God has brought Israel back, He has brought them back to Jerusalem but her “righteousness” has yet to be “brightness” and “salvation as a lamp that burns” but, God is working by His Holy Spirit to bring it to pass. The ‘times of the Gentiles’ is nearly full. 

And there is another word that God is yet working on –

“that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” – Eph. 1:17-23

The Church, which is His body, is to be filled with Jesus. God has “raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” and “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2). The true Church is seated with Jesus far above all principality and power and might and dominion of Satan. We are to live as those who have overcome Satan. As Satan seeks to destroy America’s Christian witness, we are to stand and in faith and resist the devil and his false philosophies. We are to pray for and against those who are trying to subvert America’s Christian heritage and history. And we are to evangelize America once again! 

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” – Rev. 12:11

How do we prepare to enter the rest of God? By doing the word of God and praying always.

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” – Eph. 4:30-32

This would be a good start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Bread of Heaven

Democrats and VirusAs many are worried about the Covid Virus, they don’t want to socialize, go to the stores, or even go to work out of fear. In fact the Lawless One that Paul spoke about (2 Thes. 2:10) has sent a spirit of fear upon the land. And his henchmen have joined right in closing ‘non-essential’ places of gathering and giving out government Covid checks to keep people from reporting to work. Now businesses are having to close because of lack of employees willing to work because they get more from the government not to work! Those that do report are often faced with masking and threats to get the vaccine shot, even though it is unproven and many well qualified doctors are warning about taking it! Through all of this the government wants to become God, giving out ‘bread’ to the people like Pharaoh did. But, Pharaoh’s bread brought slavery!

In this article, I want to explain Who the Bread of Heaven is and how you can get Him. In the Gospel of Mark is described two accounts of Jesus performing the miracle of multiplying bread –

gal-3-7-know-then-that-they-who-are-of-faith-these-are-sons-of-AbrahamBut He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” And when they found out they said, “Five, and two fish.” Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties. And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all. So they all ate and were filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish. Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.” – Mark 6:38-44

Immediately He made the disciples get into a boat to cross to the other side of the lake to Bethsaida while He Himself went up on the mountain to pray. Later, as the disciples were struggling to cross, He came walking on the water and His first words were “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” But they were greatly amazed and marveled, not because He was walking on water, but because of the bread!

“For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.” – Mark 6:52

A short time later, Jesus again multiplied the bread, this time feeding 4 thousand, and when Jesus and His disciples departed, the disciples forgot to take bread with them and when Jesus said, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” they thought He was talking about their taking no bread, so Jesus said to them again –

““Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened? “Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? “When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They said to Him, “Twelve.” Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?” And they said, “Seven.” So He said to them, “How is it you do not understand?” – Mark 8:17-21

As I re-read this story, I wondered, “How many today would understand?” To explain it, I will have to go back to a time when the Hebrews were coming out of Egypt and in the wilderness. They were hungry and complained, so God gave them manna from heaven, as David later remembered –

“Therefore the LORD heard this and was furious; So a fire is kindled against Jacob, And anger also came up against Israel, Because they did not believe in God, And did not trust in His salvation. Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven, Had rained down manna on them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven. Men ate angels’ food; He sent them food to the full.” – Psalm 78:21-25

When referring to this miracle, the Pharisees challenged Jesus, asking Him what sign would He do. –

“Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? “Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ” Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. “For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.” And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” – John 6:30-35

This was a direct fulfillment of what Nehemiah said about God –

You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger, And brought them water out of the rock for their thirst, And told them to go in to possess the land Which You had sworn to give them.” – Neh. 9:15

Jesus told the Pharisees again –

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” – John 6:51

It is no wonder that when Jesus came as a baby, He was born in Bethlehem. The word ‘Bethlehem’ means “House of Bread”. In the beginning when Adam fell from Grace, God pronounced a curse on him –

In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return” – Gen. 3:19

That curse remained in effect until Jesus came and became a curse for us on the Cross. Jesus is here proclaiming that He is the Messiah, the One who is sent to erase the curse and give life back to mankind. And by multiplying the bread, He was demonstrating that He is the “bread from Heaven” sent down from God!

He was telling the Pharisees that anyone who “eats of this bread”, in other words, anyone who accepts Him as the Bread of Heaven, will have everlasting life. As Jesus took the last Passover meal with His disciples, He instituted what we call “The Lord’s Super”.

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many. “Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” – Mark 14:22-25

Paul adds, “Take eat; this is My body which is broken for you” and “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” (1 Cor. 11:24).

When a person accepts Jesus and is ‘born again’ by the Holy Spirit, he or she becomes a new person in the Spirit, “old things are passed away and all things become new”. (2 Cor. 5:17). They are now welcome at the Lord’s table to partake of His New Covenant. Every time we meet we should partake of this Supper, reminding ourselves of His sacrifice for us and this New Covenant.

In this Last Supper there is regeneration; old wounds are to be healed, old resentments are to be forgiven, old sins are washed away in His blood, and by His blood we can come boldly into the Throne Room of God for help in time of need! What a blessed time this time of remembrance should be! No wonder why we should take it as oft as we gather.

When Jesus multiplied the bread, this is what He was declaring. He was the answer to Adam’s sin sent down from Heaven with the mercy of God to restore us to all that Adam lost. And remember, Adam had the Tree of Life in the Garden and Jesus promised us eternal life.

So, when the spirit of Lawlessness tries to intimidate you with fear, remember Jesus’ word to the disciples, Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid “ When his henchmen try to control you and manipulate you and buy your allegiance with government handouts, remember Pharaoh and that you have the “Bread of Heaven” come down from God to meet your every need. 

May this message be a blessing to you.

The Times We Live In

Democrat garbage“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thess. 2:9-12

John writes that the spirit behind this ‘lawless one’ is the spirit of Antichrist, “this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” (1 John 4:3). This is the language of the Bible, written 2000 years ago. Today, we call it ‘Globalism’ and ‘New World Order’, or socialism, or marxism, or communism.  Continue reading

God’s Judgment Depends on this Election

Our local University has just posted its promotional video called The Center for Racial and Restorative Justice, shown below. It is a blatant, in your face, look at what they are promoting on their University, with tax payer monies I might add! This is what parents are turning their children over to be trained in.

Americans wake up! You have let a Trojan Horse into your country and it has been pulled into the educational system. They are not teaching American heritage but socialist-marxist philosophies that will destroy us from inside. It is no accident that most of the rioters burning cities are young people. This is just a foretaste of what is to be unleashed upon us if they have their way. Continue reading

Update on the Third Temple

black-lives-matter-terrorist-organization-new-panthers-islam-nation-george-sorosAs rebellion and rioting sweep the major cities in the U.S. people are wondering what is the meaning of it all? Well, I could say it is caused by the globalists and carried out by those who want to change the United States from being a world power Republic into a Third World socialist country that will give place to a One World Government. And the Democrat Party seems to be backing the plan. Or, I could also say it is all in God’s plan for the coming of Messiah. Paul wrote some 2000 years ago about this – Continue reading

Waiting on the Lord

simeon-with-jesusThese are ‘days of waiting’; waiting on the election of a president, waiting for the Covid19 pandemic to be over, or in my case – waiting for the snow storm that is predicted to hit this afternoon. But, can you imagine what the Jews must have felt waiting for the promises God had given for a Messiah? Think of the Biblical character Simeon to whom the Holy Spirit had revealed that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. I don’t know how long he waited for that promise but, he was an old man when he finally saw the Child Jesus.

“And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said:

“Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” – Luke 2:26-32

Did Simeon know that on this day he would see the Christ Child – I doubt it. Rather he was faithful to be in the presence of God, in His Temple, every day, faithfully waiting. He said “My eyes have seen Your salvation” and I wonder if he knew the Child was named Yeshua, which means salvation? Even here we can see that God’s plan was bigger than what the Jews were thinking – Simeon saw that He was to be “A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles.” God’s plan includes all peoples and His call is to all who will hear.

But, many Jews have waited for the promise of God’s Messiah to come over the centuries, knowing He would come, just not when. Few realized He would come twice. Isaiah had seen Him coming as a suffering Servant, despised and rejected by men.

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. . . . He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.” – Isa. 53:4-8

When He came the first time, many in Israel did not want to see Him this way. They wanted a Messiah like David of old who would deliver them from wicked Rome. They failed to understand that God is little concerned with earthly kingdoms but with the heavenly kingdom. They did not understand that because they rejected Messiah’s first coming, they would face nearly 2000 years of dispersion but, God did. God had told Daniel the exact day Messiah would enter Jerusalem (the Triumphant Entry) and after they ‘cut off’ Messiah they would be dispersed until the time of the Antichrist.

“Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem (given by Cyrus) Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. (The return from Babylon) And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself (the Triumphant entry and the crucifixion); And the people of the prince who is to come (Romans)  Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined (the dispersion).

Then he (the Antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.” – Dan. 9:25-27

But, before the time of Antichrist, God knew He would regather Israel back to their homeland and restore it. He also knew about the wars that would take place and that Israel would have to fight for their possession.

Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart, And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim. But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; Together they shall plunder the people of the East; They shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab; And the people of Ammon shall obey them.” – Isa. 11:12-14

God knew they would no longer be Judah and Israel, divided, but they would come back as one nation. He knew their strength would be in their air force. He also knew He would raise up Donald Trump at the head of the most powerful nation on earth to declare that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, moving our embassy there. He knew that this would lead to the rebuilding of the Temple which had been destroyed by the Romans.

“Then the Angel of the LORD answered and said, “O LORD of hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which You were angry these seventy years?” . . . Therefore thus says the LORD: “I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it,” says the LORD of hosts, “And a surveyor’s line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem.” ’ “Again proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; The LORD will again comfort Zion,
And will again choose Jerusalem.” ’ ” – Zech. 1:12-17

Ezra 1-1 Decree from Cyrus King of Persia brown

Now, I know that this prophesy was given to those returning from the Babylonian captivity but, prophesies stand forever as the word of the Lord and the Lord said I “will again comfort Zion, And will again choose Jerusalem” and “My house shall be built in it,” I know that the decree of Cyrus was to rebuild Jerusalem and the rebuild the Temple and I know that Donald Trump is recognized in Israel as the ‘Cyrus of our day’. And I know that Trump’s Jerusalem declaration sparks talk of 3rd Temple.

God also knows the Messiah will come back a second time to deal with the Antichrist and deliver His people –

“so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” – Heb. 9:28

But for now, we are all left waiting. But then, David had the right attitude –

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” – Psalm 27:14

As I look out my office window, I see the snow I had been waiting on is here. I feel very confident that the wait for the Lord’s second coming will be just as successful. He will come! As David encouraged, be of good courage and wait on the Lord!

Rome Changes
(From Roman Empire to the European Union)

I know that in this age of modern education the subject of history holds little allurement, especially as modern educators endeavor to destroy American history. But, to understand Biblical prophesy and the End Times, it is important to understand that Satan doesn’t mind taking a long time to build his plan for conquering the world. and God has allowed him to do it to test man.
