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.

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.

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

America the Young Lion of Britain

An interesting article on the anniversary of the start of WWI where the writer examines the role of America in BibleWorld War I Poster prophecy.

It was July 28th, 1914 when Austria- Hungary declared war on Serbia, which in the end dragged in Germany, Russia, France and Great Britian and importantly the Ottoman Empire.  When America finally joined it was dubbed the war to end all wars.  When the war was over the map had completely changed.  The most important development that came out of the war was the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Balfour Declaration.  

What I want to consider this week is the Lion of Tarshish and her young Lions.  In particular one specific young lion, The United States of America.  Many people look at the prophecies and do not clearly see America, but at the time of WWI the relationship she had with Britain and the common Biblical leanings, their leaders had made the perfect climate to support the Jews and their aspirations for a state.

To begin I believe that we have to spend a moment to identify Britain.  If you come to the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:11-13: 

“And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst 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?”

British Colonies in America 1763 - 1776

The translation of the New English Bible he is actually helpful, it translates the Merchants of Tarshish as “The traders of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof”

From the above we can conclude that Tarshish would have an empire.

Far away from Israel:  Isaiah 23:6,7;  Jonah 1:3

Sea traders:  Isaiah 23

Mined silver, iron, tin & lead:  Ezekiel 27:12;  Jeremiah 10:9

A maritime power in the latter days that assists the Jews in returning to their land:  Isaiah 60:9

Jamestown - "Where the British Empire began"

When you take the time and go through this list it points only to Great Britain.  Some have tried to say it is Spain. On the fact that she was not a power that assisted the return of the Jews to Israel, I believe it is case closed.  As this is Bible in the News and not a full Bible class, I am not going to spend longer going through the fact that Britain is Tarshish. I will just simply direct you to the Bible Magazine archives and to Vol 20 #3.

So the question we really want to get to is: does America belong to Tarshish and the young Lions?

First off, I think the main reason that some would suggest otherwise is due to the fact she is not counted as part of the commonwealth today.  Although that may be true, the young lions that Ezekiel speaks clearly of gives us the picture of offspring, offspring with whom she trades with, her colonies.

The Virginia Company of London's coat of arms - The fifth realm

It was in 1606 when King James I (It was King James I who commissioned the King James translation of the Bible) by royal charter established “The Virginia Company of London” which was an English joint stock company with the purpose of establishing colonial settlements in North America.

The following year in 1607 Jamestown (named after King James I) was established as James Fort.  It was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas and became the capital of the Colony of Virginia.  The American archaeologist who specializes in Virginia's colonial period, William Kelso, writes that Jamestown "is where the British Empire began ... this was the first colony in the British Empire."

To this day one of the best known nicknames for Virginia is “Old Dominion.”  The seal and coat of arms of the colony in use from 1607 until 1624, when the Virginia Company of London directed the colonization of Virginia, included the words, "En Dat Virginia Quintam,” indicating that Virginia was the fifth of the realms, or domains, of the Crown. At that time, the kings and queens of England also claimed the thrones of Scotland, Ireland, and France.

After Virginia, Britain continued to colonize the Americas and grew to include the colony of Plymouth, the Province of Maine, the Province of New Hampshire, the Connecticut Colony, the Province of New York, the Province of New Jersey among others.

Today there is no escaping the colonial history of The United States, especially if you travel along the eastern sea board.  Names such as the region of New England, States such as New York, New Jersey and New Hampshire, and cities such as Manchester and Cambridge.  In Virginia you can still attend Old Dominion University and cheer for the football team The Old Dominion Monarchs.  One of the larger freight companies in the Eastern States is Old Dominion Freight Lines.

Turkey in Bible Prophecy

The surprise Turkey Coup July 2016The future of Turkey after the failed coup

The dramatic military coup in Turkey that took place two weeks ago in July 2016, suddenly broke out and yet the crisis dissipated the very next day. In the moment of crisis it seemed as if the whole area could suddenly change. Yet now things move on and the crisis is quickly forgotten about.

But the fact is, that Turkey and Europe did change, never to be the same again on that day, fulfilling the expectation of Bible prophecy.

Ottoman Empire Map 1566The belief that the Ottoman Turkish Empire would decline and “dry up”, was long held by students of Bible Prophecy as a fulfillment of Revelation 16:12, where the text reads: "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 be prepared.” The drying up of this power was seen as a prerequisite for the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, also as a necessary fulfillment of the many prophecies in the Bible.

Istanbul and the Bosphorus StraitBoth these events have taken place, verifying the truth of scripture and also the basis and overall interpretation of these prophecies. Subsequent to the first world war, the Turkish Empire disappeared and the momentum built for the return of the Jews, which led to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The modern country of Turkey has continued as a significant power in the Middle East. Is a further drying up of the Turkish power necessary as a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?

Modern Turkey, the remaining puddle of the once great Ottoman Empire, lies in the heartland of its predecessor the Byzantine Greek Empire, the eastern leg of the Roman Empire. Not only does Turkey lie in the cultural and religious heartland of the Greek Byzantine Empire, the capital, Istanbul, is situated on the Bosphorus, a strategic international waterway and Russia’s access to the Mediterranean sea. The Bosphorus also creates the geographic boundary between Europe and Asia. Istanbul was once Constantinople, the capital and religious centre for the Byzantine Empire. Russia is the undisputed heir to the Greek Byzantine Empire, Moscow replaced Constantinople as its capital; yet the strategic, religious and cultural significance to Russia is enormous.

The significance of Istanbul or Constantinople to Russia

1.     Strategically Istanbul is the gateway, both maritime otherwise to the Middle East, the Mediterranean and North Africa for Russia. The lengths which Russia went to, to retain its military presence in Crimea on the Black Sea are useless without passage through the Bosphorus. Russia’s operations in Syria and its port there, would be far more difficult if not impossible to maintain without passage through those straights. Turkey is a member of NATO. If the straights were closed to Russian vessels, war would be inevitable.

2.     Religiously, Constantinople is the heartland of Russia’s state church, the Greek Orthodox Catholic religion. The church “Hagia Sophia” in Istanbul was for over 900 years the seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople and the focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church. When the Ottomans came, the church was converted to a mosque and then after the demise of the Ottoman Empire it was converted to a museum in the 1930’s. There is a movement in Turkey to convert the building back to a mosque again, which would no doubt cause confrontation with Russia.

3.     Russia has historical and cultural roots in the Byzantine Empire, although the area is now very Islamic. However, to an Empire builder such as Putin, Constantinople would be almost irresistible.

With this in mind, the significance of Istanbul to Russia is very plain and apparent. Now, what about from a prophetical standpoint? What is the significance of Constantinople from a prophetical point of view?

Israel God's Witness To The World

The Future of Israel and the World

IT should be apparent to all, that man for the last 100 years has lived in a rapidly changing world.

In fact since the First World War the world has changed beyond recognition, all the powerful pre-1914 hereditary ruling houses of Europe have all been replaced by other forms of government.  The Iron Curtain has come and gone as have most of the former communist regimes around the world and during this same period NEW countries have been born.

One of these is Israel. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Israel was reborn, for this people had formerly been a nation, with its own government. However, the ancient nation of Israel enjoyed a distinction not true of any other people on earth, before or since, in that its government functioned under the direction of God. The kings of Israel are spoken of in the Bible as sitting upon “the throne of the Lord.”— I Chronicles 29:23

The last king of Israel was Zedekiah. (Ezekiel 21:25-27) In 606 B.C. Zedekiah was dethroned by King Nebuchadnezzar, and the whole nation was taken captive to Babylon. This captivity lasted for seventy years. Meanwhile Babylon was conquered by the Medes and Persians, and it was King Cyrus of Persia who issued the decree of liberation permitting the Israelites to return to Palestine, but not to re-establish their own government.

From that time on Israel continued to be a subject people, vassals to whatever nation controlled Palestine, which at the time of Jesus was the Roman Empire. In the years A.D. 69 to 73 Titus besieged and finally destroyed Jerusalem. Then the Israelites who were not destroyed in this terrible ordeal were scattered throughout the world. This situation remained through the centuries until now and is referred to by the Jewish people as the period of their Dispersion.

Dispersion Foretold

Moses, the lawgiver of Israel, foretold this scattering of the Israelites among the nations, and also their regathering as we see it taking place today. This forecast is recorded in Deuteronomy 29:24 and 30:1-6. The latter part of the prophecy reads: “And the Lord thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt Possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.”

Moses also foretold how long the era of Israel’s loss of independence and scattering would be. As we have seen, Israel was a nation under God, and for this reason it was subject to disciplinary measures for wrongdoing. Moses refers to certain corrective punishments to which they would be subject, and then adds, “And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.”— Leviticus 26:18

This warning of “seven times more” of punishment is repeated four times. Students of prophecy believe that this is a time measurement. A symbolic time, the Scriptures indicate, is a period of 360 years, and seven of these would total 2,520 years. The biblical key to this method of reckoning is recorded in Ezekiel 4:4-6. Since Moses’ Prophecy indicates that this was to be a final punishment, we believe that it is reasonable to conclude that it began with the loss of their national independence in 606 B.C., with the overthrow of their last king, Zedekiah.

Counting 2,520 years from 606 B.C. brings us to A.D.1914. It was then that the First World War began. Out of that conflict came the ejection of the Turks from Jerusalem and Palestine by General Allenby, the famous Balfour Declaration, and the opening of the ancient homeland to Jewish refugees and pioneers from all lands. This resulted in the infusion of the Zionist movement with new life and hope.

While there were temporary setbacks of one sort or another, the rehabilitation of Palestine by the Jews and their migration to their ancient homeland continued. Out of this came the birth of the new State of Israel in 1948. Thus seen, it was in 1914, after 2,520 years, that the chain of events began to unfold which led to national independence for this biblical and historic people.

Times of the Gentiles

The full significance of Israel’s liberation since 1914 can be seen more clearly by noting a forecast by Jesus, who is recognized by most leading Jews today as an eminent teacher and prophet. He was questioned by his disciples concerning the end of the present age. Part of Jesus’ reply was, “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles shall be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24) At the time of this prophecy the Jewish nation, symbolically referred to as “Jerusalem,” was being “trodden down” by the Gentiles, and this was to continue until “the times of the Gentiles” were fulfilled.

BREXIT SECURED – NOW WHAT IS NEXT FOR EUROPE?A EUROPEAN UNION SUPER-STATE IS ON THE WAY

The Bible has the answer: Resurrection of the Beast.

With Britain out of the way, the nations of Europe are now looking to their future. They see a more strongly united, tighter union... little do they know this is exactly in keeping with Bible Prophecy. The Beast is to be resurrected. 

Now we move our attention to what everyone is asking, WHAT IS NEXT?

JUST AS THE BIBLE PROPHESIED THAT BRITAIN WOULD LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION, SO THE BIBLE HAS THE ANSWER TO WHAT IS NEXT:

The scripture is clear on its assessment of Europe in the latter days, and their destiny. They are to comprise the Roman beast that is resurrected at the time of the end:

“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit…..” (Revelation 17:8)

European Political Beast as depicted in Revelation 17

This ascending beast is comprised of 10 horns, which by themselves don’t amount to much, but together form the beast power:

“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” (Revelation 17:12)

The process of unification involves all facets of societal life:

“These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (Revelation 17:13)

They are united in mind, the Greek word gnome, which is defined by Strong’s as, “reason, judgment, opinion, resolve, purpose or intention.” Consequently, they voluntarily give their power and strength to the beast system. Power, the Greek word dunamis, is defined by Strong’s as, “their inherent power, the power and influence which belongs to riches and wealth, and the power and resources arising from numbers, or the power consisting in or resting upon armed forces.”

Regardless of the current turmoil in the European Union, with the British vote to leave the European Union, the end game is perfectly clear. A stronger union will be formed with Britain out.

Get out quickly:

This past few weeks have seen a clear response from Europe to Britain's vote. A chorus of views have been expressed by European politicians, and for the most part they are united – you have voted to go, so get out quickly.

“Personally I am very sad about this decision, but of course we have to respect it. We now expect the United Kingdom Government to give effect to this decision of the British people as soon as possible, however painful that process may be” – Jean-Claude Junker, EU Commission President.

Britain's EXIT from the European Union

An unprecedented  modern day Political Earthquake of Religious and Prophetical Significance

 

The political earthquake that occurred in Britain with BREXIT (Britain’s vote to leave the EU) has a religious dimension which many today will be unaware of.  Most of those who took part in the referendum would not have appreciated the full significance and background to it.

Built into the history and culture of Britain there is an almost instinctive rejection of European authority over the freedoms and institutions of the Island Race. Britain's separation from Europe has its roots in the religious divide that was brought about back in the days of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, and it is expressed in the Thirty Nine articles of the Church of England which stated in 1571, "The bishop of Rome hath not jurisdiction in this realm of England." The nation that would not obey the decrees of the Pope is the same as that which today will not submit to the rules and regulations of the European Union - which, incidentally, is a Roman Catholic project known as the Treaty of Rome, signed in 1957.

Britain out of Europe

"There is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days."

While giving us a picture of world history in advance the prophecy describes a vast empire that is to exist in the latter days. It is described by other prophets also, for example the great confederacy of Gog that we read about in Ezekiel 38. But in describing the latter-day image empire a true Bible teaching student and writer by the name, John Thomas, wrote in his book Elpis Israel (published in 1848),

Britain and the EU future

In a booklet, Guardians of Israel & Arabia published in January 2012, a heading on page 24 declared: "Britain’s Exit from Europe is Inevitable!" That statement—considered bold and presumptuous by some—was made in faith. It was confidence in what the Scriptures reveal that led us to the conclusion expressed, and we have seen no reason to change our minds about this matter in the time that has since passed.

For the most part of time since then we have watched a British government constantly plagued with the issue of European membership. The governing Conservatives are sorely divided over the matter and hardly a month goes by without yet another eruption over some aspect of Europe. In 2015 with a general election approaching, the rows over Europe are growing to a fever pitch—and there are powerful demands being made for a national referendum over Britain’s continued membership.  Prime Minister David Cameron said that if he won the election he would hold a referendum on Britains continued membership of the EU and the rest we might say is now part of history.  But let us now consider this significant political earthquake in the light of Bible Prophecy.

Britain Versus the E.U. "Beast"

A British tabloid newspapers sent a stir through the country in calling for a referendum on continued membership. On England’s St. George’s Day, and under the headline of BEWARE OF E.U. DRAGON, the paper said:

"St. George’s deed (slaying the dragon) is mythical, of course. But there is a very real dragon which threatens every single one of us throughout the United Kingdom. That beast is the European Union, an unelected body answerable to no one which aims to devour our national identity. Britain’s future role in Europe is the biggest issue this country has faced in the past 300 years."

Checking back through our history books, 300 years takes us back to the time of Britain’s great constitutional crisis which involved the throne in a contest for power between Protestants and Roman Catholics. It was that crisis which gave rise to the present constitution as laid down in the Act of Settlement and Bill of Rights—laws which to this day prevent a British movement or heir to the throne from marrying a Catholic. Those Acts secured

  • Freedom of Speech
  • Freedom of Religious Expression
  • Freedom to be governed by an elected parliament
  • Freedom to be tried by an independent judiciary and jury

Many people in Britain believed that these freedoms were being threatened by the E.U. whose laws (which are based on those of the Romans under Justinian) override those made by the British parliament. This in short gave rise to a powerful movement within parliament and the country that was opposed to continued membership.

THIS IS THE GREATEST PROPHETICAL SIGN OF

CHRIST’S RETURN

SINCE THE ESTABLISHMENT

OF THE JEWISH STATE IN 1948!

BREXIT NOW A REALITY!

ACCORDING TO BIBLE PROPHECY BRITAIN HAD TO LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION DESPITE WHAT THE POLITICAL LEADERS MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT!

WHY?  Well the short answer is because God has said it will be so, it is a matter of Bible Prophecy spoken some 3000 years ago!

Geopolitical alignments among the nations at the time of Christ's Return has been clearly revealed in the Bible.

Now for the long answer which comes from a study of Bible Prophecy.

To understand geopolitical alignments among the nations at the time of the end, we need first to understand who the King of the North and South is in Daniels Prophecy.

More than 2,500 years ago both the prophet Daniel and Ezekiel described worldwide events that would lead man to his final conflict in what is referred to in the Bible as the “battle of Armageddon”.  In describing the events that would lead to this last global conflict they foretold how the geopolitics of the nations will be divided in a north and south alliance around the nation of Israel.

This alliance means that Bible students have long expected Britain to leave the European Union, and current events have fulfilled this Bible Prophecy before our very eyes.

We live in exciting times as this is a clear witness to how close we are to Christ’s return to earth to establish God’s Kingdom according to God’s Plan and Purpose.

BREXIT, European Army and Russia

Europe Solidifies as Britain Exits and NATO is threatened by a European Army

The Bible clearly describes that at the time of the End we would see a “King of the South” and a “King of the North”in international geopolitical alliances.

This is what we read in Daniel 11:40-45

“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. 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. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him."

When the Bible describes geography like this ie. North and South it does so upon the land of Israel being at its centre.  The people of Israel “are His chosen people” who are a witness to His existence before all nations.

Deuteronomy 7:6   6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”

Isaiah  41:10   10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, And my servant whom I have chosen: That ye may know and believe me, And understand that I am he: Before me there was no God formed, Neither shall there be after me.”

So who is this “King of the South and King of the North”?King of the North and King of the South in Bible Prophecy

Well in short the Bible reveals this to be Russia and the EU while the King of the South who challenges the King of the North’s invasion of Israel and Egypt is revealed to be “Tarshish with all the young lions…” thereof.

Putin says Romania, Poland now in Russia's cross-hairs

On  27th of May 2016 Putin said that Romania and Poland may now be in Russia's cross-hairs.  This was in response to moves earlier in the month of May 2016 when NATO switched on the Romanian part of the new missile shield designed to protect Europe from the threat of Iranian missiles.  Work is going ahead on another part of the shield in Poland.

Putin says Romania and Poland may now be in Russia's cross-hairs

Whilst NATO maintains that this defensive shield is not a threat to Russia, the response from Russia and its ongoing aggression towards Europe is exactly what Bible Students expect to see.

This political and military posturing by Russia is a sure sign of the latter day times predicted in the Scriptures of truth.

Bible student John Thomas wrote this in 1850 in the preface of his book “Elpis Israel”:

"The future movements of Russia are notable signs of the times, because they are predicted in the Scriptures of truth. The Russian Autocracy, in its plenitude, and on the verge of its dissolution, is the Image of Nebuchadnezzar standing upon the Mountains of Israel, ready to be smitten by the Stone. When Russia makes its grand move for the building-up of its Image-empire, then let the reader know that the end of all things, as at present constituted, is at hand. The long-expected, but stealthy advent of the King of Israel, will be on the eve of becoming a fact..."

This statement summarises True Bible Students understanding of many Bible prophecies.

The word of truth

The term “scriptures of truth” refers to the claim of the Bible to have been inspired by God and that it is this WORD only which can be trusted as it has not been tampered with by human fallibility.

We read in Peter:

“For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:21

The word for “moved” here is the greek “pherō” which means to carry or to move by bearing, to be carried along. This verse is describing the method of inspiration. The pen-men of scripture were moved and compelled to write down specific words of God. God chose the men, their circumstances and the words which they would be moved to write.

In Hebrews chapter one, quoting from the Psalms of David in many places, we read that it was not David speaking - but God! 

This is why the scriptures are indeed God’s word and are TRUE and RELIABLE. 

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

So the word of God is truth. What a privilege we have then to have it so readily accessible to us. What a responsibility we have to look into its pages to seek to understand its divine revelations.

Prophecy and the gospel

Prophecy is, of course, a huge part of what is written in the Bible. Many prophecies have come to pass, most notably the return of God’s people of Israel back to their land.

However there are prophecies though that are yet to be fulfilled, especially those which are connected with the great theme of scripture, the gospel message.

The gospel message is set out in scripture as having two key themes. We read of these themes in Acts:

“And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.” Acts 28:30-31

So the two themes then which made up the preaching in the first century were: “the kingdom of God” and “the Lord Jesus Christ”. Both of these aspects of the gospel contain prophecy.

The theme of the Kingdom is all about the future restoration of the Kingdom of Israel on the earth (Ezekiel 21:27, Acts 1:6, Luke 1:32). It is all about God’s ultimate purpose to fill the earth with his glory - with men and women who manifest His characteristics. They will be rewarded with immortality in a future age (Isaiah 11:9,  Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 72:19, 2 Peter 1:4).

The theme of the things concerning Jesus Christ is all about the principles of God.

These principles were enacted and demonstrated by Christ (John 17:6, 2 Corinthians 4:4, Hebrews 4:15) and it is by understanding and believing in these things that God has declared he will save us in the future from sin and death (Romans 1:16. 3:21-22, Mark 16:15-16, Colossians 1:20, Galatians 3:26-29).

Prophecy then is a very important aspect of the scriptures of truth. In both of these key themes of the gospel things in the future are promised and prophesied.

Prophecy and the nations

One of the amazing things about Bible prophecy is that God has revealed to us how the nations will be internationally aligned (geopolitically and militarily) just before Jesus Christ returns to the earth.

In Ezekiel 38 we read of a great confederacy of nations headed up by Russia who will attack the people of Israel in the land of Israel. These nations consist of European, North African, Far Eastern and of course, Russian territories. By comparing this scripture with other scriptures such as Zechariah 12-14, Joel 3 and Revelation 16 we discover that it is at this time that Jesus will return to the earth. He will defeat the invading forces, save Israel, show himself on the world stage and establish God’s kingdom on the earth.

With him will be a group of people, who will have been raised from the dead, gathered from the nations, judged and rewarded with immortality. This “cloud” of people will be with Christ to assist him in establishing the Kingdom, to rule with him as “kings and priests” for a thousand years. At the end of the thousand years another resurrection and judgement will take place, and then the globe will only be filled with immortal men and women. Indeed “the earth will be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea”.

We have seen the return of the Jews to the land of Israel. This part of the picture is firmly in place. We are now looking at the gathering of the nations to attack them with Russia (the Rosh, Meshech and Tubal of Ezekiel 38) taking a leading role.

Europe Solidifies as Britain Exits and NATO is threatened by a European Army

BREXIT, European Army and Russia

As the European Union is moving ever closer together, some states with Russia, Britain is holding a referendum on pulling out.

The Bible paints a clear picture of where the nations will be in the time of the end. The European Union is moving closer to Russia, and pulling away from the West. Britain is holding a referendum on exiting, and NATO is being threatened by the creation of a European army, all showing we are moving closer to the return of Christ.

There is no doubt from a scriptural perspective that Europe is to draw ever closer together, while Britain is to exit the Union. We don’t come to this conclusion due to any political prognostication prowess, by reading geopolitical tealeaves, or European entrails. Rather it is the clear indication of the scriptures.

The prophecies of Ezekiel clearly indicate that nations who come to destroy Israel at the time of the end are a conglomeration, largely European lead by Russia:

“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: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: 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 38:2–7)

The nations that cover the geographical area of Russia (Rosh), Moscow (Meshech), Eastern Europe (Magog), and France & Germany (Gomer), along with Iran, Libya and Ethiopia are the ones who unite in a final crusade against what the Almighty terms, “my people of Israel” in v16. This prophecy is paralleled in Daniel where he describes two opposing powers – the King of the North and the King of the South:

“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. 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. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.” (Daniel 11:40–42)

The King of the North equates with the Gogian confederacy of Europe which is to enter the glorious land (Israel), and is opposed by the King of the South. In Ezekiel the King of the South are the merchant nations linked with Arabia, who protest the invasion:

“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)

Britain is the Tarshish power, united with her independent whelps, the young lions who do not participate with the invading force, but protest against it. They are united with Sheba and Dedan, the nations who cover the geographical territory of Arabia – who we know today as the Gulf States.

That is the clear picture of the Scriptures. It matters not what current events are presently displaying, this will be the picture at “the time of the end”. Added to this is the prophecy of Revelation 17, where the nations of Europe are united together in what is described as “the beast” under the influence of a false religious system termed “the Harlot.”

Eventually, their crusade into the Middle East, their hatred of God’s people, and their desire not to be brought under the yoke of the Lord Jesus Christ when he returns to set up God’s kingdom, which will crush all worldly kingdom’s will bring them into direct conflict with Christ, a conflict they will lose:

“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

On the other hand, the mercantile nations associate with Tarshish and Sheba will submit to the rule of Christ:

It is for this reason that Bible Students have been predicting and ever closer European Union, and Britain’s departure from it. This is why it is so exciting to watch the Bible in the News as we see the nations being prepared for their roles at the time of the end.

Gomer and Rosh Drawing Ever Closer Together

The Terrorist attacks in France and Belgium have helped France and Russia draw closer together.

Marc Le Fur, of France's Union for a Popular Movement

It was fascinating to see headlines in the news this week where France is calling for an end to the anti-Russian sanctions in Europe. Members of the Republicans Party in France called for a parliamentary debate calling for an end to EU Sanctions. Marc Le Fur, of France's Union for a Popular Movement, told the French Assembly:

"We are demanding to lift the sanctions because they are totally ineffective and they are dangerous for our economy, let's say it clearly: lifting of the sanctions is necessary, desirable and we are demanding the government take measures at national and European levels to rapidly improve the difficult situation we are in now.”

Before the vote was taken, Thierry Mariani told Russia Today reporters:

"Let's be honest here: it's up to Europe to decide, and in order for it to do so one country must have the guts to say 'enough, I'm out!' If Europe shows Kiev that we are no longer the prisoners of its government, that after all we have paid the price of solidarity, we introduced the sanctions and it's time to lift them since they do no good and they only hurt us, I guess then and only then things are going to improve."

The French then took a non-binding vote, but one that nonetheless gives insight into where France is at when it comes to Russia, and leads the way for other nations to follow suit.

Another indication of this is that while NATO is provoking Russia with its buildup of troops in Eastern Europe, France is cooperating with Russia militarily, both in Syria, but also in Europe itself. The Russian publication Sputnik carried an article this past week entitled, “Russia to Conduct Observation Flight Over France Under Open Skies Treaty.”  While America is moving toward re-entrenching itself against Russian aggression, France seems to be more interested in placating its new protector. The article stated:

Syria, Russia and the Transformed Middle East

The Latter Day King of the North and the King of the South in Bible Prophecy

Russia moves into Syria and the Middle East

The unrest and resulting civil war, that engulfed the nation of Syria has now been raging for about five years. To begin with it was unclear what would come out of the Syrian civil war, but there were certain events that seemed probable - many of us may have said, “Wouldn’t it be significant if Russia were to move into Syria”. Five years on, at least some of the results are becoming quite clear. Today Russia is in Syria. While Russia has now said that they will be withdrawing some of their forces from Syria. What this will exactly entail and when remains to be seen, but the fact is that Russia will have a much stronger presence in Syria and in the Middle East going forward. Russia’s move to pull back some of its troops came as a surprise, however it is probably a tactical pull back, the reason for which will become apparent.

The conflict in Syria has been a potentially very significant event for students of Bible prophecy for several reasons. Why is the Syrian civil war significant? Here are four reasons.

1.      The territory of Syria is part of the original territory of the “king of the north” or Greek Seleucid kingdom spoken of in Daniel 11. The Seleucid empire was much larger than Syria, however the area of Syria was the most significant in respect to the kingdom of Judah at the time, as it was directly to the north. The capital of the Seleucid empire was Antioch, which is today located close to the Syrian border in modern day Turkey. 

It was the “king of the north” Antiochus IV (175–163), who erected a statue to Zeus in the Temple at Jerusalem. His persecution of the Jews and desecration of the Temple resulted in the Maccabean uprising commencing in 165BC. The Maccabean resistance resulted in the Jews taking control over Judea from the Seleucids and the creation of an independent Judea.
