Chapters 17 and 18 introduce another actor in the endtime scenario that begins in chapter 12 and 13 – the Great Whore.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:” – Rev. 17:1-4 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
“I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.” – Revelation 2:13
One of the first martyrs of the Church happened in the city of Pergamos. But what do we know about this ancient city now located in modern Turkey? According to the prophet John, it was where Satan’s throne was and where he dwells. But what is Satan’s throne? This teaching by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn sheds new light on this question. Continue reading
We are fast approaching the last half of the 2014-2015 Blood Red Moon Tetrad (cycle of 4). March 20th (Just 2 days away) will begin with an eclipse of the sun.
Root Source Ltd. reports “It will happen both on the first day of spring and on the first day of the Jewish religious calendar, the beginning of the month of Nisan. Such an astronomical event only takes place once every 100,000 years, experts said.
2014 is almost gone and it will be seen as a year of beginnings in many ways. For example: Obama Care began to show its true nature of high costs and lack of freedoms for US citizens, President Obama solidified his rule by Executive Order disregarding Congress, and the Congress shows its complicity and lack of courage by letting him do it. It is now clear to all that we are no longer a nation of rule by law, but one where greed, power and political influence can override justice and truth.
I believe 2014 will also be seen as the beginning of a financial downturn that will rock the entire world. Already plunging oil prices are sending several nations into deep recessions that may have long lasting effects. Remember that it was economic pressures that encouraged Germany and Japan to rely on military conquest as a solution in WWII.
“High expectations based on unconfirmed reports swirled around Arab capitals Sunday, Dec. 14, that US President Barack Obama, in league with Moscow and Tehran, had turned his longstanding anti-Assad policy on its head. He was said to be willing to accept Bashar Assad’s rule and deem the Syrian army the backbone of the coalition force battling the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” – DEBKAfile.
This will certainly upset the current trends in the Mideast in the following ways: Continue reading
