God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

Clip from “T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD

Is there something wrong when a supposedly 70 million-year-old tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur is found with soft tissue—including blood vessels and even whole cells? This is what a U.S. researcher reported in late March.  Biologist Mary Schweitzer discovered this soft tissue when it was necessary to break a T. rex’s huge thigh bone.

Schweitzer said that the vessels were flexible and some could even be squeezed. After extensive testing, there was confirmation that this T. rex bone even had hemoglobin (red blood cells).

This discovery is unexplained by evolutionary thinking, which suggests that millions and millions of years have passed since this “King of Dinos” met its demise. Schweitzer is puzzled and cannot understand why this bone was not mineralized. “It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually, because it flies in the face of everything we understand about how tissues and cells degrade,” she said on MSNBC.

“It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually….”

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

In 1995, Joe Taylor, a professional dinosaur excavator and a biblical creationist, was curious about the hip girdle of another T. rex that was found in 1916. It was found in the same Hell Creek Formation where Schweitzer’s T. rex bone was found. Taylor was amazed that this 65 million-year-old specimen still had the appearance of skin on the sacral vertebrae. He sent a sample to Azusa Pacific College in California and had it scanned with an electron microscope by Professor Mark Armitage, who found that the bone had collagen filaments intact inside the bone. The presence of collagen suggests that this supposedly 65 million year old fossil was not completely fossilized. Armitage states, “It can’t be but a few thousand years old.”

So the Theory of Evolution is just that ‘A Theory’ that has never been proved and evidence like this says it can’t be and isn’t true.

A First Official Royal Visit

Prince William Visits the State of Israel and brings a Gift

During the week of 9th of July  2018  the English Prince William Duke of Cambridge made the first Royal official visit to the state of Israel ever.

The fact that it has taken until 2018 to finally have the first royal visit may have come to a surprise to some.

Prince Willian in Israel first visit

Well it certainly is not that historically the royals have been dis interested in the holy land.  It was in 1862 that Queen Victoria sent another young Prince of Wales on a tour of the Middle East, 21 year old Albert – who would later become King Edward VII.  And only three years later under the royal patronage of Queen Victoria in the Palestine Exploration Fund was founded which would begin to shake the dust off the old city of Jerusalem under the hand of the archeologist Charles Warren.  And the British did not stop there, it was they themselves who were principally involved in the idea of the homeland for the Jewish people, of course through the issuance of the Balfour Declaration.

So with all this interest and history why would it take so long for a visit to the State of Israel? Well if you know your history, British support for ‘a national home for the Jewish people’ did not last even though it was reaffirmed in the White Paper of 1922, known as the ‘Churchill White Paper,’ and received international support at the San Remo conference and the Treaty of Sèvres.  

Unfortunately, as time went by and oil became an important commodity appeasing the Arabs who were instigated by the Vatican became increasingly British policy.  In fact, the British government would appease the Arabs to the point of outright hostility to the Jewish population in Palestine as it was called at that point.  Plain and simple Britain would go against its word and it would destine countless Jews to die in Europe during WWII.

Over the decades since the founding of the State of Israel its ties to Britain have increased, and it has been argued that Britain really needs Israel more than Israel needs Britain.  The following was written in Haaretz in an analysis piece asking what has changed to bring about the royal visit now:

“For a start, the United Kingdom – on what seems an irreversible course to leave the European Union following its Brexit vote – is trying to carve out a new niche for itself in international diplomacy.

Britain in Bible Prophecy: Britain’s road to EU exit as required by the Bible

2nd Anniversary of the EU Referendum - Brexit negotiations and Bible prophecy

As we approach the 2nd anniversary of Britain’s historic decision to leave the European Union, and with the October deadline for a deal, set by Michel Barnier, now just months away, this week we look at what is to be expected from the Brexit process in light of Bible prophecy.

Ezekiel 38 refers to a future invasion of Israel by a large confederacy of nations. These nations include Magog as well as “Gomer and all his bands”. By comparing references from Josephus and Herodotus we can find that Magog refers to eastern Europe, and in a similar way, by comparing Josephus with another Greek historian Diodorus Siculus we can find that Gomer refers to a large section of Western Europe, particularly France. From this we see that continental Europe is united in this military venture. Late last year we saw 23 EU countries, headed by France and Germany, agree to start the process of integrating their armies to create a European army which could mark the beginning of the assembly of the great confederacy written about by Ezekiel 2500 years ago.

Vlad Putin and Brexitx300hRussian President Vladimir Putin observing military exercises in the Black Sea region  

Ezekiel 38 also refers to “the merchants of Tarshish” and “the young lions thereof” along with Sheba and Dedan who oppose this confederacy. So, who might these opposing nations be? By comparing the mentions of Tarshish in the Bible with the accounts of historians (such as Herodotus) it seems clear that Tarshish is Britain.

Israel’s Next 70 Years Will Shake the World

As Israel celebrates its 70th Anniversary the Bible clearly shows what the next 70 years will bring - and it is going to shake the world.

As the tiny nation of Israel celebrates its 70th birthday, Bible prophecy figures heavily into the events that have taken place. These same prophecies also give us a clear indication of what Israel’s next 70 years will bring… and this will shake the world to its foundations!

This past week the Bible was in the News once again as Israel celebrated its 70th Birthday.

No nation under heaven has had more reason to celebrate. The Jewish people have survived millennia of diaspora. They have survived persecution from pagans, Christians, and Muslim nations. The arose out of the ashes of the holocaust, the pogroms of Russia and the persecution in Islamic countries to become a nation once again. This is a direct fulfillment of the words of Jeremiah:

“Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; Neither be dismayed, O Israel: For, lo, I will save thee from afar, And thy seed from the land of their captivity; And Jacob shall return, And shall be in rest, and be quiet, And none shall make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: Though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, Yet will I not make a full end of thee: But I will correct thee in measure, And will not leave thee altogether unpunished.” (Jeremiah 30:10–11)

Israel celebrated 70 years this week, a feat that is the direct result of the Bible.

Israel at 70 1

Over the last 70 years Israel’s population has increased. A consensus take n in May of 1948 put Israel’s population at 600,000. It has exploded to almost 9 million with about 75% being Jews. Over 600,000 live in the West Bank. This population explosion is again prophesied in the Bible:

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, That I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah With the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, To pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, And to destroy, and to afflict; So will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 31:27–28)

The time to pluck up and pull down is over, and the time to plant and build has come.

Israel reflects on the pioneers turning a desert back farmland.

Israel at 70 2.jpg

The 70th year celebrations featured a display of the reclamation of the barren land from deserts and swamps to the agricultural miracle we see today. This is also a direct fulfillment of Bible prophecy:

“And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, And they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; And they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, And they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, Saith the LORD thy God.” (Amos 9:14–15)

Again, the prophet Jeremiah records:

“For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.” (Jeremiah 24:6)

Israel economy has also been blossoming.  It rose from $2.5 billion in 1960, to approximately $387.4 billion in 2017.  Its economic growth was ahead of the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Australia, France, Germany, and Russia in 2016, according to theGlobalEconomy.com. Considering that Israel is only 70 years old, and yet is ahead of nations who have been in existence for centuries, and some for millennia, it is again miraculous. Once again, this is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy, where Ezekiel describes:

“… the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.” (Ezekiel 38:12)

Gas Explosion Erupts Across Europe and in the Middle East

Europes energy requirements, Russia's energy dominance, and Israel's energy finds set the world on a collision course.

Europe is looking to diversify its Russian dominated gas supply, Israel and Egypt joining forces to compete. Alliances are forming between Egypt and Israel to supply gas to Europe, while German and Russia are forming alliances to dominate gas in Europe. This could well bring the two groups in to a collision course that has been predicted in the Bible.

During this past week headlines once again brought the dispute between Ukraine and Russia into focus. A headline in CBC news read, “Standoff between Russia and Ukraine over natural gas leaves Europe on edge.

Russia is Europe’s main supplier of natural gas, but it is transported through the Ukraine, which obviously is not friendly to

Russia turned off the gas to Ukraine, and consequently Europe this week.

EU vs Russia Gas1

Russia following Russia’s invasion and annexation of the Crimea. On March 1, Russia turned off the gas. According to CBC:

The tense standoff between Ukraine and Russia also left Europeans on the edge of their seats, asking what's next when it comes to their future supply of the highly lucrative resource

Ukraine and Russia rely on each other to deliver gas to Europe. The Russians pump natural gas through pipelines in Ukraine and deliver it to Europe, but the deep-seated distrust that has turned into hatred between the two countries is causing chaos…

Russia’s energy grip on Europe has politicians throughout the EU scrambling. The article continued:

Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller announced the company intended to withdrawal from all contracts with Naftogaz, including the all-important transit contracts supplying gas through Ukraine to Europe.

The Prophetic Russo-German Alliance

What has this to do with Bible prophecy? Well, what is interesting is the alliances that are being formed to solve this problem, which we’ll come to in just a moment.

Before we do, let’s consider the picture the Bible paints at the time of the end. The scriptures speak in certain terms of a Russo-Germanic alliance at the time of the end. Ezekiel 38 clearly states who is in the confederacy that invades Israel:

Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:” (Ezekiel 38:2–4)

The word “chief” in this passage is a proper noun, and the RV interprets the passage, “the prince of Rosh”. Rosh is the ancient name for Russia. The land of Magog cuts into Germany as has been identified by numerous historians and geographers. The prophecy also includes lands of both France and Germany when the tribes of Gomer are mentioned:

Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.” (Ezekiel 38:6–7)

Israel India the United States and the Gathering Nations as Seen at the UN

In this article we examine the visit of Netanyahu to India, the reaction to Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and a speech from VP Mike Pence!

 “All of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council or they vote against us, potentially, at the Assembly, they take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us.  Well, we’re watching those votes, let them vote against us; we’ll save a lot. We don’t care.” - Donald Trump, December 20, 2017

Well after the vote Trump did cut $285 Million dollars from the UN in December and now after a vicious anti Trump speech of Mahmoud Abbas the US will now be cutting a total of $110 million from the UNRWA.  

Welcome to another edition of the Bible in the News, this is John Billington with you this week.

The scriptures are clear that in the last days all the nations will unite against Israel

“And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel” - Ezekiel 38:16

“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,  I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” - Joel 3:1,2

Well there is no better place to see the nations uniting against Israel than at the UN, it really is incredible.  But as the funding is being cut to UNRWA I thought it would be a good time to put the spotlight there.

UNRWA

UNHRC is the UN agency for refugee’s around the world, but UNRWA is the UN refugee agency for only the Palestinians, the only refugee group to have their own agency.  And by having a separate agency just for the Palestinians coincidentally means that not all things are equal.  To start with the definition of a refugee differs wildly.

Definition of a Palestinian refugee from the UNRWA Website - 

“Palestine refugees are defined as “persons whose normal place of residence was Palestine during the period 1 June 1946 to 15 May 1948, and who lost both home and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 conflict.” 

UNRWA services are available to all those living in its area of operations who meet this definition, who are registered with the Agency and who need assistance. The descendants of Palestine refugee males, including adopted children, are also eligible for registration. When the Agency began operations in 1950, it was responding to the needs of about 750,000 Palestine refugees. Today, some 5 million Palestine refugees are eligible for UNRWA services.”

On a side note it is worth noting that there were approximately 800,000 Jewish refugee’s from Arab lands that had to flee after WWII and the declaration of the State of Israel.  They were however integrated into Israel very quickly.  There are no longer any Jewish refugees.

Comparatively the definition from the UNHRC of a refugee is simply the following:

“A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.”

The following paragraph about descendants is absent.  This definition has huge impacts to the Israeli Palestinian problem because there are only approximately 30,000 individuals left that were personally displaced in 1946 - 1948.  Instead by calculating in the descendants the UNRWA is claiming 5 million refugees.

In any peace negotiations the “right of return” of these refugees is a major sticking point.  The “right of return” when you are speaking about 5 million refugee’s coming into Israel obviously has huge implications to the demographics of Israel, and could quickly removed the Jewishness of the state.  It is simply a demographic weapon against Israel.

Miracles of Bible Prophecy Coming to Pass in Israel

The people of Israel are all in Expectation of something happening soon! 439900350 1280x720

We live in very exciting times! The words of the prophets are being fulfilled right before our eyes. 

Isaiah 27:13 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” Friends, we live in the days of the great trumpet. In the time period of the seventh trumpet in Revelation, which is also the time of the resurrection trumpet, the gathering together of Israel from the four corners of the earth, which Isaiah is speaking of. In the news we hear about events in Russia, Syria and Iran as those nations come together, under the protectorate of Russia — the king of the north. We see the great merchant powers of the earth and Saudi Arabia coming together and forming a southern alliance. All these are incredible events. But the national revival of Israel is the greatest of them all. 

How could a people, scattered to the four corners of the earth, in over 100 different countries, speaking over 80 different languages, ever come together again into one nation, in one land, speaking a revived common ancient language — the language of the Bible? It is unprecedented in human history. Now all these miracles have happened to bring this nation to life. Each one of them, the return of the Jewish people, the resurrection of the their language, their return to their ancient homeland, their survival against all odds, as the surrounding nations attempted to annihilate them… each one, is a great trumpet blast reminding us that we live in the days of the great shofar. 

Some have tried to say that the Jews came back as a self fulfilling prophecy. But this ignores the fact that the early return was almost entirely secular. During the early years of the state of Israel, it was a secular nation. However, as this great return and revival took place, the Jewish people have realized that this is the hand of the Almightily. Seeing Jews from the four corners of the earth, Ethiopia, America, Russia, Iraq, Persia and Yemen all together is an undeniable fulfilment of prophecy. 

More and more of the Jewish people are recognizing the hand of the Almighty and the fulfilment of prophecy in these events. 

This week David Billington was really struck by a speech given at the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce in the King David Hotel in Jerusalem by Israeli member of Parliament Yehudah Glick, reported by Israeli news Arutz Sheva, where he speaks about how prophecy is fulfilling right before our eyes and about his vision of Jerusalem being the future capital of the world.
Israel Yehudah Glick speaking about Bible Prophecy"Ladies and Gentlemen, it really is a wonderful miracle to be here. We can’t take things for granted. We’re are sitting in the hotel King David, in the city of King David, ladies and gentlemen, we have to remind ourselves, coming to Israel, Anthony, is not just sightseeing. Coming to Israel is to see the words of the prophets, coming out of the book, materializing and becoming a reality. You can tell Ezekiel, the bones aren’t dry anymore. You can tell Jeremiah, Jerusalem is not isolated like a widow anymore. 

You can tell Zechariah, children are playing in the streets of Jerusalem. Ladies and gentlemen, the words of the prophets are coming out of the book, and we’re writing the next chapter of the book in our generation. We’re seeing it happen with our own eyes. And we have a mission, that Jerusalem should be the Godly capital of the Jewish people and of the world. We don’t need the world to recognize Jerusalem.

Britain in Bible Prophecy and in the World Today

We certainly live in the most interesting of times. The prophets all spoke of these days. The time of Israel’s regatheringtarshish 2 and the time when all the nations would come against Israel.

Welcome to another Bible in the News, this is John Billington with you this week.

One of the major signs that we looked for was the separation of Britain from Europe with the understanding that Britain is the latter day Tarshish of Ezekiel 38, one of nations that stands against the northern confederacy.  The proof of Britain being latter day Tarshish can be an in depth study, but can be shown simply by the following few points

1)  Tarshish would be a sea faring nation  (Isa 23)

2)  Tarshish would have an empire  (Ezekiel 38:13)

3)   In Tarshish could be mined silver, iron, tin and lead (Ezekiel 27:12; Jer 10:9)

4)  Tarshish would be involved in assisting the return of the Jews (Isaiah 60:9)

With that understanding it was the writer Grahame Pearce that wrote in the 1981 Milestones the following:

“The building of the great Image of Nebuchadnezzar will be in progress; the Fourth Beast of Daniel will be re-created with its little horn of the Papacy speaking great things and preparing to challenge Christ and the saints; America will be separated; Britain will be isolated on the edge of a hostile continent. Events may move slowly or quickly, we do not know. But we shall have no excuse that the Master's coming has caught us as a thief in the night.”

So the separation of Britain from Europe has been a great ‘sign of the times’ that many Bible readers and believers have looked for from the time that Britain went into Europe.  So how exciting was it for us when we heard the following on the night of the Brexit vote:

Audio Clip of Nigel declaring British independence after the Brexit vote

Well that was then and this is now as the British Prime Minister Theresa May settled to paying an exorbitant Brexit bill to Europe in exchange for really not much.

So it turns out a Brexit vote was a fairly simple thing to do, actually producing Brexit is another.  Does this is any way mean that we question the prophecies?  Certainly not, the course is clear from scripture that Britain does not belong in a Roman Catholic Europe, her place is on the other side as it has historically been.  It also may be the case that Britain does not just have it all easy leaving Europe and as the nation has generally turned its back on the Bible whether the hard times come now or later they certainly will come.  This will be the same for Canada and the majority of the western nations.  Nations that once had the Bible at the centre of society in homes, schools, laws, and government.

Jerusalem The Eternal Capital of the Jewish People

Jerusalem future capital of the world

 On November 7th 2017 THE PRESIDENT of the United States said: “When I came into office, I promised to look at the world’s challenges with open eyes and very fresh thinking. We cannot solve our problems by making the same failed assumptions and repeating the same failed strategies of the past. Old challenges demand new approaches.  My announcement today marks the beginning of a new approach to conflict between Israel and the Palestinians… "

"…Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more, or less, than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It's something that has to be done.

That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

God said in Zachariah 12 that Jerusalem would be a burdensome stone, well that was clear this week!

What made Trump's statement so significant and so highly controversial is that Trump simply said “Jerusalem,” and specifically did not define the capital as West Jerusalem.  Even Russia earlier this year declared West Jerusalem the capital of Israel, but in defining West Jerusalem the capital it is equally declaring East Jerusalem as not being the capital, and that narrative is not new.   And for anyone who is not familiar with difference, it is East Jerusalem as it is known today that contains ancient Jerusalem, meaning the City of David, the temple mount and really all the places that hold significance.

This unwillingness to say that that the path to peace must be through the two state solution is truly a new era in the seemly never ending peace process.  Further to that the complete unwillingness of the United States to now compromise the safety of Israel or force anything upon them seems so foreign after the Obama years.  In fact many see this as a perfect response to the Obama administrations abstention of UN resolution 2334 which denied Israel any right to the City of David, the western wall, or the temple mount.  

And with so much Jerusalem in the news the Bible is also very much in the news.  The following is a message of thanks from Benjamin Netanyahu to President Trump.

"This is a historic day.

"It's been the capital of Israel for nearly 70 years. Jerusalem has been the focus of our hopes, our dreams, our prayers for three millennia. Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years.

"It was here that our Temples stood, our kings ruled, our prophets preached.

Stirring Up of The King of the SouthIsrael and Saudi

The King of the South Asserts Itself Against Iran, Forming Biblical Partnerships as it Does. 

FULFILLING BIBLE PROPHECY.

Saudi Arabia has been going through a transformation to take on the growing influence of Iran in the Middle East. America has been wanting it to take this role, but now is concerned. Israel comes out and speaks openly of forging an alliance with it. The Biblical players who make up the King of the South are coming into place.

During the past few weeks (November 2017) it has become evident that the powers south of Israel are undergoing a metamorphosis, and aligning themselves with the biblical script that is laid out in the Prophets.

The Southern Confederacy as Described by the Prophets

Zechariah describes the scene as two mountains of brass, (the biblical representation of flesh,) having developed in the region surrounding Israel,

between which the cherubic chariots roar through when the March of the Rainbowed angel commences:

“And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.” (Zechariah 6:1)

Ezekiel describes these two mountains of brass in terms of the Gogian confederacy to the north and a southern conglomerate in alliance with the Merchants of Tarshish who protest Gog’s invasion of the land:

“Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” (Ezekiel 38:13)

Daniel describes the mountains of brass as a king of the North and a King of the South who provokes the King of the North, drawing him into the land:

“And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.” (Daniel 11:40)

Later he identifies some of the players holding out to the south when the King of the North invades the land:

“He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.” (Daniel 11:41)

So the southern confederacy is a mercantile alliance under the influence of the king of the south, containing Sheba, Dedan, Edom, Moab, and Ammon. We have explored at length the Merchants of Tarshish and the young lions, which equate to Britain (the mother lion) and its former colonial territories, now independent young lions, including in their ranks America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa.

John Thomas, when writing Elpis Israel in 1848, during the days of the Ottoman Turkish Empire looked for developments that would see this group coming together under the influence of Britain:

But what is the lion-power of which Ezekiel speaks? To ascertain this we must direct our attention to the countries named in connection with “the young lions”. Of these, Sheba and Dedan are districts of Arabia. The men of Dedan are in the list given by Ezekiel of the traders in the Tyrian fairs. The Dedanim carried thither the ivory and ebony which they procured from “the many isles” to the eastward, and “precious clothes for chariots”. Sheba carried the “chief of all spices, precious stones, and gold”. Dedan and Sheba were those parts of Arabia which lay convenient to the ivory, gold, precious stones, and spice countries of Africa and India. The Sultan of Muscat now rules the country of Dedan; while the British have planted their standard on the soil of Sheba, at Aden, the Gibraltar of the Red Sea, and key of Egypt.… The British power is the lion-power of Sheba. (John Thomas, 1848, Elpis Israel, pp467)

John Thomas correctly predicted the demise of the Ottomon Turkish Empire, and the occupation of the region by Britain, which occurred 70 years after he wrote, and 100 years ago from our time in December 1917. This gave room for the rebirth of the State of Israel, a preparatory move for the coming kingdom of God, described in the book of Revelation as the drying up of the River Euphrates:

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might (sun’s rising) be prepared.” (Revelation 16:12)

Preparing for the Final Stage

However, once the nation of Israel was established in the land in 1948, Britain lost its direct influence in the region. The mantle was passed over to America who would be the protecting Lion for a period of time. Britain re-introduced herself to the region, alongside her grown up whelp when the Gulf Wars begin in 1991, and has been there along with Canada, New Zealand, Australia and others since this time to varying degrees. A conglomeration of nations rushed to the aid of Kuwait under President George Bush, and then again after 9/11 they invaded Afghanistan and subsequently Iraq to protect the Gulf states, and consequently Israel from the aggression of Saddam Hussein. After a vacuum was created in Iraq, a new group ISIS or DAESH was formed in the region and violence spilled over into other countries such as Syria, bringing Russia into the region during Obama’s impotent stint as president.

The whole arena has been undergoing terrific turmoil since the British departure as the protector over the region. It is worth taking a couple of minutes to consider the background of the players:

Egypt was a British protectorate until it gained independence in 1936, remaining a monarchy until 1953 when Gamal Abdul Nasser took over during a military coup. His efforts to destroy Israel were routed during the Six Day War in 1967,  but remained in power until his death in 1970 when Anwar Sadat took over. Sadat tried to destroy Israel in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War, but was defeated and began the peace process under President Carter, and with Menachem Begin. He was assassinated in 1981, after which Hosni Mubarak took over and ruled until the Arab Spring protests when he was deposed in 2011. The Muslim Brotherhood under President Morsi ruled until the military overthrew it in 2013 and installed al-Sisi as President.

To the east of Israel is the nation of Jordan, which became an independent Arab state in 1946 as part of the partition of the region by the UN. Its ruler was King Abdullah, who had fought with Lawrence of Arabia to oust the Turks. He was assassinated by Palestinians terrorists in 1951. His son King Hussein took over, and ruled during the 1967 Six Day War when Jordan was defeated and lost the West Bank Territory, and during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. He signed a peace with Israel’s Yitzhak Rabin in 1994. He died in 1999 and his son Abdullah took the throne. 

Saudi Arabia became independent from the Ottoman Empire over a period of time from 1913 through 1925 when Mecca and Medina were incorporated into the territory. It was in 1932 the areas controlled by the different tribal kings were unified under the name of Saudi Arabia and Abd-al-Aziz was proclaimed King. The nation is ruled by the Saud family since that time. In 1938 oil was discovered in the region making Saudi Arabia the wealthiest state in the region. Recently, in 2015 Saudi Arabia launches air attacks on the Houthi rebels in Yemen, citing Iranian interference in the region. In 2017, Saudi Arabia isolates Qatar in an attempt to have it cut ties with terror organizations. In June of 2017 King Salman names his son Mohammed bin Salman first in line to the throne, and Mohammed begins a purge of the kingdom to consolidate his power.

To the southeast of Israel is the kingdom of Kuwait which gained independence from Britain in 1961. It is rule by an Emir. In 1990 Iraq invaded Kuwait and annexed it. The Emir and government fled to Saudi Arabia. In 1991 the Gulf war saw the Emir restored to power in Kuwait. In 2003, Kuwait was used as a base for the Second Gulf War lead by America. The Kuwaiti Emir survived the Arab Spring, during a very rocky political period. Recently, Kuwait joined Saudi Arabia in air strikes on the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

To the far south of Israel, occupying the ancient area of Sheba is Yemen. It gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1918. In 1962 the royal family was overthrown and the army set up the Yemen Arab Republic beginning a civil war where the royalists were supported by the Saudi’s and the Republicans were supported by the Egyptians. South Yemen gained independence from the North in 1967 when the People's Republic of Yemen was formed, but Marxists took over in 1969, putting Yemen into the influence of the Soviet bloc. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Yemen reunited in 1990, although several groups have tried to establish an independent Yemen in the south. The 2011 Arab Spring dramatically affected Yemen and the president resigned. In 2014 the Houthi rebels took control of the North and a new civil war began in earnest. The Houthi’s are named after their founder and are predominantly Shia Muslims, and are backed by Iran, and are violently anti-west and anti-Israel. The Houthi’s are considered terrorists by Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Australia.

These are the nations that form the “Edom, Moab Ammon, Sheba and Dedan” contingent at the time of the end. They have been created in dried out waddies of the Ottoman empire. They have been through much turmoil during their development. What is very interesting is that three of them are still ruled by kings.  They are “kings of the south” under the influence of merchants of Tarshish, also united under a monarch, with the exception of its eldest son, America. Now we see them coming into the roles described by the prophets of the Bible.

Balfour Declaration Britain and the Bible

BalfourDec12017 is the Centenary of the 1917 Balfour Declaration

The first week of November 2017 was the centenary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917 and featured in major news around the world.

When the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, hosted the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu in London, she said that she was proud of the U.K.'s "pioneering role" in assisting the birth of the State of Israel.

She had warm words to say about Israel and Israel's right to exist, but it was qualified by referring to what she called "illegal settlements." The Balfour Declaration signalled British support for Jewish settlement in Palestine, but it was also a fudge, not defining the extent of settlement. The key passage read:

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

As Barbara Tuchman has pointed out in her book "Bible & Sword,"

"The Mandate, not the Balfour Declaration, gave a footing in public law to the restoration of Israel in Palestine. The Balfour Declaration was simply a statement of policy that any subsequent government could have ignored, allowed to lapse, or even repudiated. But the Mandate was an international engagement, signed and ratified by the Principal Allied Powers acting through the League of Nations, and as such it raised the Balfour Declaration, which was incorporated in it, to the status of a treaty."

So it was the Mandate rather than the Declaration itself that gave the Jewish State its legitimacy, and it was the League of Nations that was responsible for it, and it was the United Nations that assigned land for this in November 1947.

But what most commentators miss out of their analysis is the fact that behind the whole issue there is something that no one seems to want to acknowledge - and that is the influence of the Bible. It is Barbara Tuchman again, in the book "Bible & Sword" who points out:

"In Balfour the motive was Biblical rather than imperial. If the Biblical culture of England can be said to have any meaning in England's redemption of Palestine from the rule of Islam, it may be epitomized in Balfour... Long before he ever heard of Zionism Balfour, steeped in the Bible from childhood, had felt a particular interest in the "people of the Book." According to his niece, companion, and biographer, Mrs. Dugdale,  it was a "life long" interest that "originated in the Old Testament training of his mother and his Scottish upbringing."
