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.

Christ is Coming SOON, Are YOU Ready?

Christ is Coming SOON! ARE YOU READY?

Are you ready for Christ’s Return?

Do you know about Christ’s Return and what this will mean to you?

Firstly the Bible speaks on Christ’s Return in two completely different ways eg:

Matthew 24:27-31

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Matthew 24:30

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Matthew 24:37-39

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:40-42

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Luke 12:39-40

39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Luke 21:27-28

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

1Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 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: 17 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. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-5

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

2 Peter 3:10

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

Okay so what do we learn from all these passages:

1.     When Christ comes the dead will rise first ie. Those who have died in belief and faith of Christ’s coming will be resurrected from the grave.

2.     The believers that are still alive at Christ’s coming will be gathered together to be with Christ and along with those who have been resurrected.

3.     At this point only those who were ready and waiting for Christ’s to come will see him as to all others his return will be like a thief and they will not realise that he has come.

4.     We know that one of the first things that Christ will do when he returns is judgement of all that we have done both good and bad.  And Peter tells us that this judgement must first begin at the household of God ie. With the Believers. 

1 Peter 4:16-18

16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

So Judgement will commence with the believers who will be taken away from this world for a time while this process takes place.  Where will they go?

Well Isaiah says that they will enter a place of privacy

Isaiah 26:19-21

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. 

The world we live in is a world of contrasts.

NATO verses RussiaCracks appearing in NATO

The state of the nations before the Kingdom of God

Relationships are at an all time low between Russia and NATO. The members of NATO themselves do not seem to be overly convinced by their union. Cracks are appearing in the NATO alliance as we would expect from Bible prophecy.

The State of the Nations before Christ return

In the Bible in the news we often discuss the wonder of Bible prophecies which relate to the state of the nations before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth. We consider these prophecies and look for evidence of the hand of God in world affairs.

We turn to prophecies such as Daniel 2, Daniel 11, Zechariah 12-14., Ezekiel 38, Joel 3 and Revelation 16. We see how these prophecies all give us different aspects of the same story.    They depict a unification of the Kingdoms of Men, an alliance of Russian, European, North African and Far Eastern countries - all of whom will come down upon the “mountains of Israel” after the Jews have been regathered to their land.

Something needs to change

We look up from our Bibles and glance at the political landscape around us. Although we do see many encouraging things coming to pass as the prophecies have predicted there is currently one major thing which needs to change.

Currently, we have Russia and the territories of Europe very much in a stand off against each other in the situation in Eastern Europe. They are not on the same side.

This situation has been brought about by the Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine. Back in 2014, in a bid to ensure that the Ukraine looked East and not West, Russia made several military incursions into the Ukraine after it famously annexed Crimea. This aggression has been resisted by the Ukraine and its European supporters.

At the moment, the situation is in a stalemate. Ukraine is part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Members of this organisation include America, the UK, Turkey and most European countries such as Germany and France. Russia is not a member. They have a pact to defend each other. Should one country be attacked all other NATO countries would defend that one invaded country. NATO troops have been sent to the Eastern Europe to deter a full blown Russian takeover. This has been called “Operation Reassurance”.

On the 24th of April, Sputnik ran an article entitled “Russia-NATO Ties at 'Lowest' Point Since End of Cold War - Russian General Staff.”

On the 18th of May, the Mail ran an article entitled “Russia strengthens its Baltic forces with additional warships and fighter jets in bid to out-gun NATO.”

A Remarkable speech by the US Vice President Mike Pence

The following remarkable speech by Vice President Pence was given at an Israel Independence Day Commemoration Event in the White House.

The introductory remarks by Ambassador David Friedman highlighted the fact that this was the first time the White House had celebrated Israel’s Day of Independence.

Vice President Mike Pence remarkable speech on IsraelTHE VICE PRESIDENT:  Well, thank you, Mr. Ambassador.  Thank you all for being here.  And on behalf of the First Family, welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  

I bring greetings from the President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump.  (Applause.)  And on behalf of President Trump, just a few minutes ago, I had the distinct honor to wish a happy Independence Day to Prime Minister Netanyahu over the phone as we celebrate the 69th anniversary of the independence of America’s most cherished ally, the Jewish state of Israel.  (Applause.)  

I want to thank all the distinguished guests who are here and members of Congress who made time to come to the White House this afternoon, and people representing a broad spectrum of Americans who all cherish the relationship that the American people have enjoyed throughout these 69 years with the people of Israel.

It’s humbling to be here with you on this remarkable and even a hallowed day.  From Secretary Steve Mnuchin to Ambassador David Friedman -- (applause) -- to Senator Orrin Hatch, who has been a great, great champion for Israel all these many years in the United States Senate.  (Applause.)

Distinguished members of Congress, including Congressman Peter King, who’s with us today.  (Applause.)  Republicans and Democrats who are gathered here, honored guests, my fellow friends of Israel, thank you, on behalf of the President of the United States.  Just thank you for being here today at the White House to celebrate this day, the anniversary of a moment that will be remembered for eternity.

You’re all here, all of you, regardless of your home, your creed, because on this day, the fifth day in the month of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar in 1948, nothing short of a miracle occurred.  On that day, in the ancient and eternal homeland of the Jewish people, the state of Israel was reborn.  (Applause.)  

On that day, the Jewish people’s 2000-year exile, the longest exile of any people anywhere, ended.  And on that day, a prophecy literally came to pass.  And I believe in my heart that God himself fulfilled his promise to his people.  The Lord God tells us in the Old Book, “Behold, I will cause breath to enter into and ye shall live.”  And Israel lives today.  (Applause.)

Wake up the Mighty Men of War!

A resurgent Russia is seen across the world, heralding the return of Christ and the coming of the Kingdom of God.

We know from the Bible that a belligerent Russia will invade the Middle East at “the time of the end”. Russia is seen to be preparing for this all over the world. New submarines are being built.  Military operations are seemingly continuously on full ahead GO! Allies are being brought into the fold such as Libya, Syria, Iran, South Ossetia. The Western nations are increasingly worried and are warning their military establishments and defence organizations to "wake up" - just as the Bible predicted.

In scanning through recent news, one is impressed by the number of articles speaking of a resurgent Russia.

We know from the Bible that a belligerent Russia will invade the Middle East at “the time of the end”. It is a Russia that has been preparing:

“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 38:7)

The word “prepared” carries the idea of being formed to the point of becoming “firm”, or firmly established, to be securely determined, to furnish, to arrange or order, to be ready for action. This is the way it is used in Joshua 8:4 when Joshua commanded the men of Israel to “all be ready” for the attack on Jericho.

Many Ships

When taking a broad view of the arrangements that need to be made, according to the scriptural narrative, we see there are several elements that are required. One of these is a naval presence in the Mediterranean, for the Prophet Daniel states that he shall come with “many ships” (Dan 11:40). The news has been full of reports of a resurgent Russian naval presence causing alarm and provoking the Western dominance in the region.

The National Interest Magazine, under the headline, “Russia's Most Powerful Nuclear Attack Submarine Ever Is Almost Ready for Sea” reported the following:

war with russia 1

Russia is about to add a new class of submarine to its fleet - a multipurpose sub.

“Russia is set to launch its second Yasen-class nuclear-powered attack submarine on March 30, called Kazan…. Once the vessel is operational, she will be the most formidable enemy submarine that the U.S. Navy has ever faced. “It’s probably the most capable nuclear powered submarine out there fielded by a potential adversary,” Center for Naval Analyses Russian military affairs specialist Michael Kofman told The National Interest.” “The Severodvinsk is capable of antisubmarine, antiship, and land-attack missions.”

Russia’s resurgent navy has been flexing its muscles all over the world. Causing alarm in America, CNN reported,

“There's a Russian spy ship off the coast of Connecticut. Crammed with eavesdropping equipment, the Viktor Leonov has loitered in these waters before, but its current visit is the latest in a string of provocations….”

The report went on to state:

“In recent years, Russia's military has become more assertive and more capable, directed by the Kremlin to probe for weaknesses, sow uncertainty and exploit opportunities.”

In the past decade, Russia has reportedly committed $700 billion to updating its armed forces in this decade, making them more mobile.

Russia is using this modernized force to test US commitment to safeguarding international security and looking for signs of self-doubt, chinks in its armour.

The alarms have been sounding in the USA but also in the Mediterranean. This week the British newspaper, Daily Expressed, ran an article with the headline “Russia floods Gibraltar waters with DEADLY submarines as military fears sinister plot” where it was stated:

Vladimir Putin is testing British military patience by sending the deadly subs past the oversees territory on their way into the Mediterranean.

The new cold war developing between Russia and their Western enemies is becoming increasingly focused on the Med, which Vladimir Putin has been utilizing due to the war in Syria.

UK military sources also confirmed the presence of Russian submarines off the Gibraltar coast.

They said: “In recent years we have seen an increase in Russian submarine activity in the North Atlantic and in the Mediterranean.

Norways Lt Jakobsen

“We can also confirm that there has been an increase in its capabilities with better-equipped submarines and greater stealth capacity."

Norway has also been stating its fears of the growth and activity of the Russian Navy in its own waters. The Guardian ran an article entitled, “Troubled waters: Norway keeps watch on Russia's Arctic maneuvers” where it stated:

The Russian posture in the high north has changed. Moscow has developed a fleet of increasingly sophisticated submarines and aircraft, which are being tested in the north Atlantic alongside new high-precision long-range missiles. The fear is that Nato could lose the ability to deny Russia naval access to the north Atlantic, and Russia could block or disrupt US reinforcement to Europe.

Please don't blow us to smithereens by Lizzie Marvelly  Published: Saturday April 29, 2017

"Some mornings I wake up, read the news, and experience an intense urge to bolt the doors, board up the windows, go back to bed and pull the covers up over my head.

From left: Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, Kim Jong Un. Photos / AP

At this stage, who knows what comes next?

If the world were a car, I'd wonder whether the driver was asleep at the wheel, foot jammed firmly on the accelerator, with a gleeful toddler sitting on their lap careering the thing wildly down a potholed road crying, "broom, broom!"

We are living in a dystopian sci-fi soap opera with a cast of characters as preposterous as if they'd been conjured up during an acid trip.

You can just imagine the descriptions on the casting call:

"Donald Trump, a creepy American real estate tycoon with bad hair and a penchant for pomposity who has inexplicably risen to the rank of President of the United States."

"Kim Jong-Un, the 'supreme leader' of North Korea. A paranoid autocrat with chronic little man syndrome, an obsession with nukes and fratricidal tendencies."

"Vladimir Putin, a KGB agent who has succeeded in his mission to secretly infiltrate and overthrow the Russian Government. Likes riding horses and perfecting his scary face in the mirror."

The most recent character to join our absurdist production?

"Marine Le Pen, an Islamophobic political heiress who expelled her own father to consolidate her power. Stands a frighteningly good chance of becoming the President of France."

Outside of the main cast, there's a roster of interesting recurring guests, like Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi; all contributing to a shitshow of epic proportions.

Yes, this is the depth I have sunk to. Joking about our fractured geopolitical landscape in an attempt to ward off the gnawing rush of fear that threatens to consume me.

I've only had 27 years on this planet, but I've never been so concerned for the precarious state of peace in my life.

I'd quite like a few more years here yet, please, if our world leaders could possibly hold off on blowing us all to smithereens."

Well who can blame this writer for feeling this way as we read our world news.

YET FOR BIBLE STUDENTS all we see in our world news today is exactly what we are told about in the Bible.  So for believers there is NO FEAR of what we see, RATHER WE REJOICE knowing that God is in control and that HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE is being worked out with HIS WORLD.

Even with strong authoritarian leaders increasing their sphere of influence in the world we have no fear as GOD HAS PROMISED THAT NO ONE SHALL DESTROY HIS EARTH. 

What is more one authoritarian leader in particular Vladimir Putin of Russia has all the signs of being the great ‘Autocratic’ leader of the Northern Confederacy that Bible Prophecy says will invade the Middle East and trigger the world wide war known in Bible Prophecy as Armageddon.

SO YES Events in our world today are following Bible Prophecy concerning our times, so to Bible Students this is nothing but exciting as we see world events unfold exactly as the Bible foretold over 2500 years ago.  There can be no doubt that we are living at the time of the end, but not the end of the world, just the end of man’s dominion of the world, as Christ will soon return and take control of this world.

World Events to Watch as Bible Prophecy Unfolds before our EYES!

Far from being an era of peace, this so called "civilised" world has become an age of strife and violence. No wonder the attitude of so many people is one of pessimistic resignation.

Furthermore there seems little any one can do.

Now what has Bible prophecy to say about all this?

We see strife today on an unprecedented scale -- strife between political parties; strife between ethnic factions; strife between nations.  

We are beset by problems – climate change bringing extreme weather, hunger, pollution of land and water, and ever present violence; problems of society, revealed by increasing crime rates and over-crowded prisons; by hospitals filled with patients, many of whom are there because of mental stress; and by an alarming number of victims of drug abuse and alcoholism. Looming over all is the frequent threat of economic crisis, with widespread unemployment and material hardship among the "under-developed nations".  There is debt to the world banks (that is, chiefly those of America and Western Europe) to staggering sums running into billions of dollars, with no prospect of ever being able to repay the loans.

The ONLY Source of Hope

God's Word the BibleBut there is one source of HOPE.  It is the Bible. Throughout the Bible human history is seen as ending in a great climax, frequently called "the time of the end" or "the last days", and certain passages tell us quite clearly what those "last days" will be like. One of the clearest and most striking is in Luke 21.  The disciples asked Jesus what would be the sign of his coming (they meant his return to the earth) and of "the end of the world" (Matt. 24:3).   Jesus replies with a description of conditions which his followers would experience after his ascension to heaven.  Then he speaks particularly of the Jewish people:

The Hostile Northern and Southern Powers over the Middle East

The shaping of the nations as expected by the Bible Prophecies prior to Christ’s Return

U.S.A Warship in the Mediterranean Sea

We never know what might happen next, and in recent events it seems that President Trump surprised many with the attack on the Syrian Shayrat airfield.  

Bible prophecy gives us the framework of what will happen but knowing the exact road that events will take we often can't say.  

What is interesting is that this attack seems like a complete reversal for Trump.  After President Obama had declared the red line in Syria was if Assad ever used his chemical weapons, and Assad then went ahead and used his chemical weapons on his own people, Trump then tweeted out the following: 

“Let the Arab League take care of Syria. Why are these rich Arab countries not paying us for the tremendous cost of such an attack?” - August 29, 2013

“What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long-term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.” - August 29, 2013

“AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!” - Sept 5, 2013

In the end, Obama did not respond as he said he would, and it was seen around the world as America pulling out and losing heart.  But clearly Trump is a different man and like many other world leaders once in power has a change of mind.  As often is the case the campaign trail is different than the actual position once in the seat.

The truth is that God has a plan and it is He that puts leaders into and out of power, as we are told in Daniel chapter 4:17—

“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men"

And further to this events can come about that change us completely.  We have an example of this in Esther 5 & 6.  In chapter 5 Haman has built the gallows for Mordecai and is ready to have him hung.  However chapter 6 starts off “On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles, and they were read before the king.”

You may well know the result, The king finds out that Mordecai saved his life.  And Haman ends up parading Mordecai through the streets crying out “Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honour.”  A sleepless night and perfect spot in a book are all it took to change the course of history at that time.  God has a way of orchestrating events when he needs to.

Defense Secretary James Mattis (left), flanked by Gen. Joseph Votel (right)Today, many in the US and around the world wondered and accused Trump of working behind the scenes with the Russians.  Trump said himself that it wouldn't be a bad thing if we got along with the Russians.  But that is not what the Bible says will happen.

US government officials are saying that it was the pictures of the babies and children that made him act.  Whatever the reason there is a change.  In fact the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley has now said that “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary”

This change in Trump is to be expected as it is scripture that paints the relationship between the northern power and the southern power as one of hostility.  We say this based on the following passages:

In Daniel 11 we have the King of the north and the King of the south where we read these words:

“36 And the king (of the North) shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt

A World on the Brink of a Nuclear War

A World on the Brink of a Nuclear War

The world is edging closer and closer to an international conflict, the scale of which has not been seen since the Second World War.

These last two weeks in April 2017 saw a rise of tensions in North Korea as the US sends a carrier group to the area, fallout from the gas attack in Syria followed by the US strike against Syrian bases, a referendum in Turkey giving Erdogan dictatorial powers, and a the call for an election in Britain to help move BREXIT further ahead, ISIS attacks in the Sinai, along thwarted terror bombings in France, all of which are causing consternation worldwide and causing stability to dissipate.

During the past two weeks, the deterioration of the relationship between Russia and America has been exacerbated by events worldwide. This has caused much concern amongst international observers as the world is edging closer and closer to an international conflict, the scale of which has not been seen since the Second World War. Warnings are coming from all quarters of the globe.

US-Russia a hair’s breadth from war

Former Soviet Leader Michael GorbechevFormer Soviet leader, Michael Gorbechev warned that the US and Russia are in a new Cold War with the US-Russia arms race ‘in full swing’. In an interview with Germany’s Bild news paper he stated:

“The language of politicians and the top-level military personnel is becoming increasingly militant. The relationship between the big powers continues to worsen. This creates the impression that the world is preparing for a war. So all the indications of a Cold War are there.”

The Independent commenting on Gorbechev’s statements went on to state:

“Large-scale military exercises have seen Russian and Nato troops, tanks and weapons stationed ever closer in neighbouring countries amid disquiet over the Kremlin’s intervention in the Ukrainian war.”

Russian media anchor Dimitry Kiselyov in his weekly news show Vesti Nedeli made that statement:

“The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war”

On the other side of the pond, the US sees the same thing in reverse as US Navy Admiral Michelle Howard stated:

"We're seeing activity that we didn't even see when it was the Soviet Union…. They're a global navy, I understand that. But the activity in this has substantially moved up in the last couple of years "

US Navy Admiral Michelle Howard

This is in keeping with the words of the prophets:

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, And your pruninghooks into spears: Let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:9–10)

The bellicose backward and forward tussling between the US and Russia is approaching dangerous levels.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, while criticizing North Korea’s president for its reckless nuclear actions, was more critical of America:

“I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the USA will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign.”

By which he was referring to Trump’s comment that America would not become the world’s policeman.

News syndicates throughout the word carried the headline “Russia declares US relations in ‘worst period’ since the Cold War.” This comes from a statement made by the Kremlin surrounding the trip of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Moscow. The Russian foreign ministry stated:

“It's clear that Russian-American relations are in their worst period since the end of the Cold War, the previous U.S. administration has done all it could to exacerbate them."

Russia and America are poles apart on how to handle Syria. Tillerson stated:

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson"I think it is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end, but the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important, in our view, to the durability ... of a unified Syria. I hope that ... the Russian government concludes they have aligned themselves with an unreliable partner in Bashar al-Assad."

Obviously, publicly telling Russia “you’ve betted on the wrong horse” is not going to warm Russian relations with the US. Russia certainly doesn’t see things the same way.

UK-Russian Relations Worse Ever

It is not just America’s relationship with Russia that has degenerated. During the past two weeks Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancelled a planned visit to Moscow following the chemical attack in Syria. Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s Ambassador to the UK, gravely warned of Russia-UK relations,

“There is no bilateral relationship of substance e between our two nations, that is beyond mere diplomatic ones.”

Yakovenko accused the UK of “raising tensions” in Europe over its decision to deploy 800 troops to the Estonia, near Russian border:

The Failure of the Two State Solution

There is no Scriptural basis for a Palestinian State in the Midst of the LandUN Partitioning of Palestine into Transjordan Palestine

Hello, this is Paul Billington speaking this week from Jerusalem where a Conference has been held entitled "Realizing the Zionist Vision: Sovereignty with Responsibility - apply Israeli law to Judea and Samaria." In effect, the discussion was about Israel possibly annexing the so-called West Bank.

This is the topic of discussion in the Israeli media at the present time, and it was given somewhat of a boost following the Trump meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Upon arrival in Israel a week ago we were greeted by a headline in the Jerusalem Post newspaper which read:

"Will 2017 be the year we annex the West Bank?"

"UN, France, EU warn against annexation."

Those are interesting and challenging reports which if followed to their conclusion, would bring the world right into the prophecy of Ezekiel 38, where the northern powers of Europe are seen invading "the mountains of Israel:"

"After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations and they shall dwell safely all of them" (Ezekiel 38:8).

It is interesting as well as important to note the fact that in the whole prophecy (chapters 38 and 39) there is no hint or mention of a Palestinian state. Ezekiel did not see a two-state situation. The focus is upon a prosperous people "that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst (navel) of the land" (Ezekiel 38:12). The focus is "the mountains OF ISRAEL."

The Failure of the Two State SolutionThe Sovereignty Conference that we attended this week was a great success. The room was packed to overflowing. An announcement was made that "Everyone will get a seat - 100 more chairs are going out." There was an air of excitement and expectancy. Several speakers were included who clearly saw that the time had come to annex the territories taken by Israel in 1967. Much was made of the fact that 2017 marked 50 years "of renewed Jewish presence in Israel's heartland." Speakers included Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post and Member of the Knesset Tzipi Hotovely as well as other prominent political leaders and journalists.

The EU Celebrates 60 Years

Will Britain have an amicable exit from the EU?

On the 1st of April 2017 the EU held a special summit in Rome, on one of the seven hills, commemorated 60 years since the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community that led to the European Union. The European Union’s remaining 27 leaders — without Britain — declared in a joint statement the EU to be “undivided and indivisible”. The prime minister of Great Britain, Theresa May, was absent from the gathered European leaders.

The Pope addresses EU leaders at the Vatican on the EU's 60th Anniversary?

The EU faces many challenges and bitter disagreements, with some even predicting a break up because of the departure of the UK from the block. However, the leaders of the most influential countries in Europe plan on moving ahead with all their power.

The Telegraph summed up the Pope’s remarks with this headline, "EU risks dying, needs new vigour and passion, says Pope Francis”

Here are some more excerpts from the Telegraph report:

"Pope Francis told Europe's leaders on Friday the continent faced a "vacuum of values" as they marked the EU's 60th birthday, condemning anti-immigrant populism and extremism that he said posed a mortal threat to the bloc.

"Prime ministers and presidents from 27 EU member states have descended on Italy to mark the 1957 founding Treaty of Rome, receiving a papal blessing on the eve of the anniversary.

"When a body loses its sense of direction and is no longer able to look ahead, it experiences a regression and, in the long run, risks dying," Francis told the leaders gathered in an ornate, frescoed chamber in the heart of the Vatican.

"The Argentinian-born pontiff told the leaders they needed to promote Europe's "patrimony of ideals and spiritual values" with greater passion and vigour.”

The Special Relationship Between America and Great Britian

The Special Relationship Between America and Great BritainThis past year and certainly this past month or so have seen the UK and America brought back together, just as Bible students expected.

Obama - “I think it’s fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement, but it’s not going to happen any time soon because our focus is in negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to get a trade agreement done.  The UK is going to be in the back of the queue.”

Well that was so last year, as Obama tried to influence the Brexit referendum.  At the time Donald Trump was asked in an interview with Piers Morgan what his position would be and he responded. 

Trump - “I mean, I’m going to treat everybody fairly but it wouldn’t make any difference to me whether they were in the EU or not. You’d certainly not be at the back of the queue, that I can tell you.”

It must be said post election and post inauguration that Donald Trump has held true to his word, and not put Britain at the back of the line, as we call it in Canada.  In fact I don't know if Trump could do any more to put Britain at the front of the line!  His first meeting with a politician from another country after the election was with Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party and the man behind Brexit. 

As for Trump’s first week in office, there has been much discussed and written about what this week would look like.  There have been protests and executive orders signed and the first official visit from another country’s leader, and of course it is with the British Prime Minister, Theresa May.

Prime Minister Theresa May and USA President Donald Trump stand next the Churchill Bust back in the Whitehouse

PM Theresa May and President Trump posing with the bust of Winston Churchill that has been brought back into the Oval Office.

We will discuss some of what was said during this visit but before we do I think it is worth reading the words of Graham Pearce that he wrote in Milestones of the Kingdom in 1980 under the heading "THE MERCHANTS OF TARSHISH AND ALL THE YOUNG LIONS THEREOF”:

“This brief phrase from Ezekiel chapter 38, indicating that the Merchants of Tarshish will be involved in challenging the northern invader of the land of Israel, is suggestive in a number of directions. It tells us: 

1. that Britain will not be part of the European confederacy; 

2. that we can look for close co-operation between Britain and America, the strongest of the young lions; 

3. that Britain has a part to play in the Middle East; 

4. that she will maintain her world trading position, expressed in the words 'merchants of Tarshish'; 

5. there is the hint that she may be closely involved in the prosperity of Israel at the time of the invasion.”

Graham Pearce later says “How and when Britain will be detached from Europe we do not know, but this will come.”  and further down in the chapter he says that “We expect to see close co-operation between America and Britain, and less between America and Europe… The 'special relationship' has been revived, and we can see Britain becoming more linked with the U.S. than with Europe.”

I bring your attention to these words of Graham as it gives us such confidence in the understanding of Britain as Tarshish and of the US as a young lion nation.  This has been mentioned on this program and written about in the Bible Magazine many times, but since the Brexit vote, the US election, and now with Trump’s first week in office behind us these words could be a commentary of today’s news.  We are seeing this situation take shape before our very eyes.
