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.

 Truth Seeker - True Bible Teaching

The Bible is our only true source for the Truth!

 

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 things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven (1 Peter 1:12)

 

True faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

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.

The Eastern Tarshish Strengthens Ties with Israel

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

The Eastern Tarshish Strengthens Ties with Israel

The Eastern Tarshish Strengthens Ties with IsraelJoint Israel India Stamp marks 20yr Relationship

India and Israel have been strengthening ties, as foreseen by Bible prophecy students of years gone by.

The ancient nation of Tarshish is identified by scripture as being friendly to Israel in the time of the end. The Biblical text identifies both a western and an eastern Tarshish. India is identified with the East as is seen to be strengthening its ties with Israel after years of cold relations.

We have often spoken of the latter day Tarshish on the Bible in the News program, discussing the relationships between Britain, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The cause of our attention comes from passages such as Ezekiel 38:13 where there is a notable presence of the Tarshish powers, friendly to Israel in the time of the end:

“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)

It is another subject, but Tarshish is identified with the ancient trade in tin and led identified by Ezekiel 37:12:

“Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs.” (Ezekiel 27:12)

Tarshish is identified as a western lying nation because Tarshish is identified with the nation of Tyre on the coasts of Lebanon, and Jonah left from Joppa to take a ship to Tarshish heading west.

Ancient authorities such as Herodotus and Julius Caesar identify an island beyond the straights of Gibraltar and off the coast of Europe as being the source of tin. More current authorities such as Encyclopedia Britannica, and Barbara Tuchman in her book "The Bible and Sword" identify Britain as this ancient source. “Bronze Age Sea Traders” and  “The Merchants of Tarshish” for more on this).

The Eastern Tarshish

The people of Tarshish have roots that go way back in history. It is interesting that Herodotus, writing about 100 years after Ezekiel, identifies the Phoenicians (who are associated in the Bible with Tarshish), as originating from an Eastern direction, and migrating into the west via their naval prowess. Herodotus tells us:

These people originally came from the coasts of the Indian Ocean; and as soon as they penetrated into the Mediterranean and settled in that part of the country where they are today, they took to making long trading voyages. (Herodotus Histories, Book 1, page 1)

Solomon entered into a joint project with Hiram king of Tyre to built ships to go to Tarshish:

“And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Ezion-geber, which is beside Eloth (Elat), on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom. And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon. And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.” (1 Kings 9:26–28)

Years later Jehoshaphat decided to follow Solomon’s example, he made an alliance with Ahaziah of Israel, however he failed in his exploits:

“And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Ezion-geber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.” (2 Chronicles 20:35–37)

Note where Jehoshaphat’s ships were destroyed, Ezion Geber. We are told this in the Kings record too:

“Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Ezion-geber.” (1 Kings 22:48)

Both Solomon and Jehoshaphat’s navy’s were built in Elat, in on the northern tip of the Red sea and were destined for an eastern “Tarshish”.

Eusebius, who wrote an Onomasticon, or a directory of place names, where he identified Ailam, also known as Ailath during Roman times as

“the extremity of Palestine between the southern desert and the Red Sea where cargo was transported by ship from both Egypt and India”

John Thomas writer of Elpis Israel (The Hope of Israel) in 1848John Thomas identified India with the Eastern Tarshish in Elpis Israel, 1848

John Thomas, reflecting on these Bible passages, and writing in Elpis Israel in 1849 had the following to say:

As to Tarshish, there were two countries of that name in the geography of the ancients. Jehoshaphat built ships at Ezion-geber, a port of the Red Sea, that they might sail thence to Tarshish. Now, it will be seen by the map that they could only sail southward towards the straits of Bab-el-Mandeb, from which they might then steer east, or north, for India. As they did not sail by compass in those days, but coastwise, they would creep round the coast of Arabia, and so make for Hindostan. They might have sailed southward again along the coast of Africa instead of to India; but it is not likely they did, as the commerce of the time was with the civilized world, and not the savage. The voyage occupied them three years. In the days of Solomon the trade was shared between Israel and the Tyrians; for “he had at sea a navy of Tarshish with the navy of Hiram; once in three years came the navy of Tarshish bringing gold and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.” These products point to India as the Eastern Tarshish—a country which has always conferred maritime ascendancy on the power which has possessed its trade and been its carrier to the nations…. The merchandise of the northern Tarshish, and of the eastern, identifies Britain and India with the two countries of that name; and Sheba and Tarshish in the prophecy of Gogue are manifestly indicative of the Lion-power of the AngloIndian empire.

Now since the days of John Thomas the British East India company has long since dissolved, with India having gained its independence in 1947 shortly before the state of Israel was established. Both nations threw of the yoke of British colonialism at about the same time. However, the scriptures indicate that the powers associated with Tarshish, her “young lions” would remain friendly to the newly reborn Israel in the time of the end.

So we can look for events that will see friendly relations between India (who answers to one of the Ancient names of Tarshish) and Israel in the time of the end, as well as Britain. 

India Strengthens Relations with Israel

These prophecies were brought to the front this week when relationships between India and Israel were highlighted in the news. The Times of Israel, in an article entitled “Defense minister to pay first state visit to India” stated,

“Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon is reportedly slated to visit India on February 17 in the first state visit by an Israeli defense minister, as the countries seek to foster deeper security ties. Ya’alon is expected to hold a number of high-level meetings with Indian officials and visit a large arms factory in the southern Indian city of Bangalore.”

Israeli Prime Minister Netanjahu adn Indian Home Minister Rajnath SinghIsraeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh on November 6th in Israel, he stated:

“Israel and India are at the cusp of a new era of increased cooperation in a wide variety of fields.”

This includes both economic and military cooperation. The same Times of Israel article reported,

“In October, India reportedly agreed to a $525 million deal to buy Israel’s guided Spike missiles, which were widely used during last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.”

The Times of India carried an article February 1, 2015, under the headline “India, Israel to restart free trade agreement talks” which stated,

India and Israel will resume negotiations for a free trade agreement (FTA) next week, government sources confirmed, in another indication of deepening ties between the two countries since the Narendra Modi-led NDA government came to power….

…annual trade with Israel peaked at $5.1 billion in 2011, it tapered to $4.39 billion two years later because of global recession. India and Israel are both confident though that their annual trade volume will double once the FTA is signed….

With Modi coming to power, both countries seem more open to engaging publicly, including in defence and security cooperation, a clear departure from the past.

David Cohen, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior in George W. Bush GovernmentDavid Cohen, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior in George W. Bush government.

David Cohen, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior under the government of President George W. Bush, posted an article on The New Caller, carrying the headline “No Country Has More Friends Of Israel Than … India.” In his opinion piece he stated:

India, the country with the second-largest Muslim population in the world, a country with more Muslims than Egypt and Iran combined, a country whose government has consistently sided against Israel over the past six and a half decades … has more supporters of Israel than any other country in the world. More than the United States. More than Israel….

Affinity for Israel is strongest among core supporters of new Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won over 171 million votes in this year’s election….

Many Indians admire the cultural self-assurance of Israeli Jews, and their willingness to fight to defend Israel and Judaism….

Many Modi supporters see India as a necessary refuge for Hinduism, and empathize with the Jews’ need to defend, in Israel, the world’s refuge for Judaism.

A Wall Street Journal article by Sadanand Dhume, an Indian writer and journalist based in Washington, under  the title “Revealed: The India-Israel axis.” Dhume stated:

Even as pro-Palestinian protestors take to the streets of London and Paris, Israel’s ties with the world’s largest democracy are on the upswing. For the first time in a decade, New Delhi appears ready to suggest publicly what many officials already acknowledge privately: A burgeoning strategic partnership with Israel matters more to India than reflexive solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

In the news today, we see the clear support of Israel by India, and an affinity between the two countries that is growing stronger all the time, both militarily and economically.

We can expect this to continue right up to the time of the end, and past the Gogian invasion into the kingdom, for we read in Psalm 72 of Millenial relationships between the Tarshish nations and Israel, after Israel’s messiah has come and is established on his throne in Jerusalem:

“The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yeah, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.” (Psalm 72:10-11)

Bible prophecy has written the script of world history well in advance, and the actors on the world stage are taking their positions for the last act in the great battle of Armageddon.

So while the world prepares, so should we:

“…knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light….” (Romans 13:11-12)
