The Blood Moons and Psalm 83 Revisited

In 2015 I wrote an article named The Blood Moons and Psalm 83 in which I highlighted the warning of the prophet Isaiah and of the deteriorating conditions in the Middle East –

“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 on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets and the beginning of the Jewish New Year, give warning to Israel to prepare for war and warning to the nations that their judgment is near. Given that these are extremely rare occurrences and will never again happen in our lifetime we should pay attention to them as warnings from God Almighty.” Continue reading

Preparation for War with Palestinians

President Trump has recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel and has scheduled the move of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. And he seems to have the support of several Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, for this move. The President’s Son in Law, Jared Kushner, has been negotiating a new Middle East peace plan that he hopes will settle the Palestinian issue once and for all. The President recently hinted that this recognition would cost Israel and they would have to “pay a higher price”. He further stated “The Palestinians will get something very good, because it’s their turn next,” Its obvious he was referring to giving them the West Bank. Israel’s Netanyahu is counting on Palestinian Authority Continue reading

Psalm 83 – Is It about to Happen?

26 signs headerIn 2014 I wrote a 4 part series of articles titled 26 Signs on the Lord’s Soon Return. It isn’t that these signs have not happened throughout history but, that they all are happening together right now, and in ever increasing frequency. This is the warning Jesus gave, that they would be like birth pangs getting closer together and more intense until the time of the delivery.

“All these are the beginning of sorrows (lit. birth pangs)” – Matt. 24:8

If you haven’t read this series, I urge you to do so. But, there is another topic I want to concentrate on in this article – it is Psalm 83. This psalm was written by Asaph who besides being King David’s worship leader was also a prophet. Many believe Psalm 83 is a prophecy of a war that has not yet happened and I have written about it before. But, whether that is true or not, Psalm 83 certainly describes events happening right now and it may well lead into the war of Ezekiel 38, 39 . Continue reading

Middle East Current Prophecy

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” – Zech. 12:2,3

The middle east is a constant source of tension in today’s world. While the threat of North Korea is worrying many today, few realize that it also is connected to the middle east through Iran. It is in Iran’s interest to have North Korea threaten the United States. When our attention is focused on North Korea, Iran is free to move towards its domination of the middle east. Also, I do not doubt that Iran supplies North Korea with finances, etc. while it gets nuclear technology from them. All the millions of dollars Obama gave to Iran not only finances terrorism but, it also bolsters North Korea which has become a major threat to us.

I believe J.D. Farag, a prophecy teacher, was correct to remind Americans that Iran calls America ‘the Great Satan’ and Israel ‘the Lesser Satan’. Islamic groups like CAIR  are working tirelessly to weaken and bring down a Christian America. That is why it is so damaging to have Speaker Paul Ryan block Amendments that would stop funding Hamas, a law sponsored by CAIR and voted in under Obama. Iran is systematically trying to remove any American influence in the middle east and any who are friends with America.

saudiiranapril282016Saudi Arabia is under attack by Iran and has even been attacked by its proxies which may well set off a war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia charged Monday that Iran had committed “a blatant act of military aggression” by providing its Yemeni allies with a missile fired at the Saudi capital over the weekend, raising the threat of a direct military clash between the two regional heavyweights.  The accusations represent a new peak in tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran at a time when they are already fighting proxy wars in Yemen and Syria, as well as battles for political power in Iraq and Lebanon. – Prophecy News Watch

 

psalm 83 warThe Zechariah scriptures I began this article with are explained more fully by prophecy teacher Bill Salis and author of the book Psalm 83 War. In a recent interview, he explained what he sees as the upcoming fulfillment of Zechariah 12 – it is worth watching.

The admonishment of Jesus and many of the Apostles is to watch and pray. I offer these thoughts on prophecy with that warning as well – watch and pray. Some may wonder why I included statements from J.D. Farag, when in my last article I included him among the false teachers? I do not count him as a false teacher, just a mistaken one on the point of repentance. There are no perfect teachers, correct on every point, myself included. Just those sincerely trying to obey the Holy Spirit and to be faithful to teach what we understand. So, we must trust the body of Christ and other teachers to point out mistakes and errors. It is why we are urged by John –

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” – 1 John 4:1

I hope these thought will help prepare you for the days we live in.

The Coming War

The daily news is filled with acts of terrorism, acts of war, and threats of war in the Middle east.  Many wise men and politicians offer their plans for a solution but those I’ve heard fail to take into account what God has said about the situation. Nations today spend much time and effort developing their foreign policies to deal with such situations but few consider that God may also have a divine ‘foreign policy’.

Ps 83 title

God’s ‘foreign policy’ is described in Psalm 83 and the related Scriptures of Psalm 2 and Isaiah 11. God has a long memory, He is not only long-suffering towards man’s sin but, He also never forgets a promise made. With this truth in view, let’s look at God’s Foreign Policy – Continue reading

The Blood Moons and Psalm 83

4 BRM Tetrad“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

Passover – God’s Countdown Begins!

passover 2015As we prepare to remember Passover, I am reminded that it also contained two other equally important feasts; Unleavened Bread and First Fruits. In fact Passover began a countdown of sorts to the first of God’s supernatural harvests. The Feast of Unleavened Bread began the next day after Passover and the Feast of First Fruits began on the next Sunday, which was usually 3-7 days later depending on the year. First Fruits marked the first of the annual harvests and a sheaf of barley was waved before the LORD in thanksgiving for the coming harvest. Prophetically, Jesus was raised from the dead on this exact feast day and represents the first fruit of the harvest of souls to come. Fifty days later the second of the annual harvest days occurred – Pentecost. This harvest marked the bringing in of the wheat harvest. Prophetically it represents the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit, spoken of by the prophet Joel as the ‘former rain’. Continue reading

Psalm 83 War – part 2

ps 83 confederatesAs I wrote in Psalm 83 – part 1, a restored Israel could be a great blessing to the surrounding Arab nations. They have already been a blessing to Jordanians by teaching them new methods of farming and water management. But, Islamic pride and radicalism has all but erased the ground gained. Radical Islam’s message of “Come, let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more” has blinded them to the possible blessings a restored Israel could be.

The true nature of Islam rules the Muslim population with the thought that “land that was once ruled by Islam can never be surrendered” so, even so-called moderate Muslims cannot and will not oppose those Continue reading

The Psalm 83 War – part 1

The Fig Tree Buds

The Fig Tree Buds

Every government has a foreign policy which consists of; 1) its goals (what it wants to achieve), 2) its plan for implementation of the goals, and 3) its response to others actions concerning the goals.

God is no different, in fact He is the author of this type of reasoning. People may be free to do their own thing, but, there are consequences to their actions, both as individuals and as nations. God’s foreign policy concerning Israel is clearly set forth in Scripture –

I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.“ – Gen. 12:2,3
