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.

U.S.A. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AND

BREXIT IN BIBLE PROPHECY

BREXIT and U.S.A. Presidential Elections 2016

REMARKABLE EVENTS IN 2016, EVENTS THAT HAVE RESULTED IN OUTCOMES IN CONFLICT WITH THE FORECASTS AND EXPECTATIONS OF ALL THE SO CALLED EXPERTS.

BUT THESE EVENTS CLEARLY SHOW WHAT THE BIBLE HAS FORETOLD IN THE ALIGNMENT OF NATIONS AT THE TIME OF THE END

God's Hand IS Evident TODAY in the Kingdom of Men - What a Surprise!

Readers will be familiar with the great uncertainty involved in predicting the future, even in the short term.

However, this does not deter people from trying to predict the outcome of national government elections; or more recently, the UK referendum on membership of the European Union or the U.S.A. Elections.

Both the BREXIT referendum and the USA Presidential Election have resulted in what by all the expert accounts are a completely unexpected outcome.

BUT ALL THESE OUTCOMES ARE PERFECTLY IN LINE WITH BIBLE PROPHECY, SO TRUE BIBLE STUDENTS ARE NOT SURPRISED AT ALL!

Companies that specialise in predicting outcomes using opinion polls and mathematical modelling all got it quite wrong!

But the Bible has it perfectly RIGHT!

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 are which is described in Daniel’s 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 despite all predictions and what most world leaders thought would happen, the people of Britain voted to leave. 

The U.S.A Presidential Elections have also resulted in an unexpected outcome, yet this outcome is perfectly in harmony with BREXIT and the King of the South Bible Prophecy.

So let us look at what the Bible describes as the “King of the South” and the “King of the North”alliance in the last days.

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 based upon the land of Israel being at its point of perspective.  The people of Israel “are His (God’s) chosen people” who are a witness to His existence before all nations.

The Prophecies of Daniel foretell world History to the time of Christ's ComingGod's Hand Evident in the Kingdom of Men - What a Surprise!

Readers will be familiar with the great uncertainty involved in predicting the future, even in the short term.

However, this does not deter people from trying to predict the outcome of national government elections; or more recently, the UK referendum on membership of the European Union.

Both the referendum and the last UK General Election gave outcomes that were unexpected.

THE CURRENT USA ELECTION OUTCOME WAS EVEN MORE UNEXPECTED!

BUT ALL THESE OUTCOMES ARE PERFECTLY IN LINE WITH BIBLE PROPHECY, SO TRUE BIBLE STUDENTS ARE NOT SURPRISED AT ALL!

Companies that specialise in predicting outcomes using opinion polls and mathematical modelling all got it quite wrong!

God Sets the Course of History

A long time ago, God spoke through the prophet Daniel to warn Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar that he was at risk of divine discipline, which would be designed to teach him that:

The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men (Daniel 4:17).

Nebuchadnezzar's Dream Image of World HistoryNebuchadnezzar experienced a period of madness imposed by God, and then finally acknowledged God’s supremacy as well as His right to act as He sees fit in dealing with His creation, including the people in it.

His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation... He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand or say to Him, “What have You done?” (v34–35).

Indeed, it is reasonable to expect both that the Creator will have a purpose and that He will accomplish it.

The remarkable thing is that He does so while allowing men and women to exercise their free will.

This is illustrated in the history of the nation of Israel when God punished them through the invasion of the Assyrians.

God described the invaders as “the rod of His anger” sent against “an ungodly nation” (Isaiah 10:5,6).

A WORLD IN TROUBLE

Looking around the world today at world events we might well ask:

WHAT IS OUR WORLD COMING TO?

Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump - would be Presidents of the United StatesDespite all our advanced science and education there has not been any higher moral standards displayed by the world at large, in fact the opposite would be more true, widespread growth in dishonesty, greed, violence and crime and moral decline on a whole new world wide level.

We look to one of the greatest nations on earth and all we see is social decay and problems that could well bring this world to the brink of a world war yet again?

The current United States Elections are nearing the time for people to vote, and all they can ask is: IS THIS THE BEST WE CAN DO? The choice for the next American President, the leader of the greatest nation on earth and someone who is looked to as the greatest World Leader, has come down to just two (2) leaders, and the only thing that is striking about either is just how unfit they both seem for the job!

Where are all the potential world leaders in America today?  Sadly they no longer seem to exist?

On the other hand we have strong authoritarian leaders increasing their sphere of influence in the world.  One 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 we can be forgiven for asking the question: Will our world self-destruct?

But wait, 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:

ISRAEL'S Jubilee Years 1917,1967 and 2017

The United Nations discusses the 1917 and 1967 Jubilees

The Balfour declaration and the 1967 liberation of Jerusalem make headlines at the UN.

During the week of 26th of September 2016 the United Nations debated the Balfour Declaration and the events of the Jubilee period following culminating in 1967.

 Abbas is threatening to sue the British government over the Balfour declaration, and the UN denies that there is any connection between the Jews and the temple mount.

Arthur Balfour and the Balfour DeclarationThe Jubilee Year of 1917, which saw the liberation of the land from Ottoman Turk rule after hundreds of years, and the subsequent Jubilee Year of 1967, which saw the liberation of the city of Jerusalem, where great signs to all True Bible Students of the approaching coming of Christ as they fulfilled Bible Prophecy.  The year 2016 was the beginning of the next Jubilee period, and we now contemplate what this Jubilee period might bring. This first year 2016-17 is the year of release or as it is in the Hebrew 'Shmita'.

True Bible Students have looked for these events for hundreds of years. They have anticipated and predicted these events based on their belief in what the prophets have to say. They have watched with great expectation as the events rolled out, thrilling the hearts of True Bible Students world-wide. 

We are not the only ones thinking about the Jubilees and the liberation of the land and the city of Jerusalem. The week of 26th of September 2016 also saw the 71st annual General Assembly of the United Nations, where leaders from around the world gave their remarks.

Abbas at UNInterestingly, Mahmoud Abbas chose to condemn Britain for the Balfour declaration, issued in 1917 and Israel for the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967. He stated about Israel’s liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 (which he refers to as occupation): 

Israel’s disrespect and contemptuous policies have even lead to attempts to “legalize” the settlements and the settlers colonizing our occupied land since 1967….

Here, I must once again appeal to you to provide international protection for the Palestinian people, suffering under occupation since 1967 in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

He went on to state about the 1917 Balfour Declaration:

…the Israeli prime minister has the audacity to criticize Palestine’s statement at the Arab League Summit in Nouakchott because we referred to the Balfour Declaration.

This was the summit where Abbas promised to sue Britain over the Balfour declaration, reported by Haaretz at the end of July of this year. In his UN speech, Abbas went on to state:

… By the end of this coming year, 100 years will have passed since the Balfour Declaration, and 70 years since Al-Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe) of the Palestinian people, and 50 years since Israel occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. 

Yes, 100 years have passed since the notorious Balfour Declaration, by which Britain gave, without any right, authority or consent from anyone, the land of Palestine to another people. This paved the road for the Nakba of Palestinian people and their dispossession and displacement from their land. As if this were not enough, the British Mandate interpreted this Declaration into policies and measures that contributed to the perpetration of the most heinous crimes against a peaceful people in their own land, a people that never attacked anyone or partook in a war against anyone.

Russia and Iran Fulfilling Bible Prophecy

The Middle East has become “the platform for Russia’s ambitions as a 21st-century great power”!

USS NitzeRecently Iranian vessels harass a US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf. The White House responded by stating that the, "Iranian provocation at sea was 'not acceptable’”. The Reuters news report on YNET News said that, "After two incidents of Iranian naval provocation, the US issues a statement saying that Iran's actions are 'not clear,' but that they nevertheless 'have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions.’”

These aggressive Iranian actions in the Persian Gulf this week, are very similar to harassment by Russian warplanes and ships to American vessels in the Black Sea. In April of this year the CNN reported: "Russian jets keep buzzing U.S. ships and planes. What can the U.S. do?” Two Russian fighter jets recently flew within 30 feet of the USS Cook which was sailing on the waters of the Black Sea. The CNN Article began: "Two separate close encounters between the Russian and U.S. militaries in recent days have left many wondering if future incidents could result in an armed clash."

Russia and Iran both using similar tactics to harass American warships in international waters certainly shows that Russia and Iran are on one side and America on the other — despite all the diplomatic work the Obama administration has done to try and normalize relations with the Iranians.  Russia and Iran both have an interest in weakening American power and influence and in these cases appear to be actively seeking to humiliate them before the world and gain prestige for their own militaries.

The Economist on August 24 in an article entitled: "The war in Syria, Smoke and chaos”, discussed how "The battlefield in Syria grows more complicated.”. The last paragraph of the article had a very interesting comment on Russia and the Middle East.

"Russia, meanwhile, is establishing a more durable presence in the region, by making its air base in Latakia permanent and working closely with Iran. The Middle East has become “the platform for Russia’s ambitions as a 21st-century great power”, says Dmitri Trenin, the director of the Carnegie Moscow Centre, a think-tank. But it risks getting bogged down in Syria’s intractable and expanding war. Permanence, in that case, may not be desirable.”

Russia then; is becoming more entrenched in Syria; has made its airbase in the country permanent; is working closely with Iran, and; the Middle East has become the platform for Russia’s ambitions!

Russia and Eqypt in Bible Prophecy

Russia has a new foothold in Egypt

We have seen the military might of Russia flexing its muscles in Syria recently but it looks like it’s ambitions lie even further south as Russia makes new investments in Egypt.

Russian industrial zone in 'Port Said'

Earlier this month, on 2nd February a special business forum took place between Russia and Egypt in Cairo. Present was a Russian delegation representing 100 Russian companies.

Also present was the Chairman of the General Authority for the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SC Zone), Ahmed Darwish.
In a press release, Darwish, declared the allocating of lands for a number of large projects amongst which there was a two million meter square area set aside for a Russian industrial zone next to a port at the mouth of the Suez Canal in the Mediterranean. The port is called “Port Said” and is part of an area which has undergone significant renovation recently.

The significance of this area should not be under-estimated. The Suez channel is the maritime gateway between Europe in the West and the Gulf and Asia in the East - and so is a highly strategic area to have a foothold in. It is thought that Russian companies will begin operating in the area in late 2016.

Screen-shot of the Daily News Egypt announcing the Russian deal

Russia and Egypt in Bible Prophecy

In the prophecy of Daniel and chapter 11 we read in verses 40-45 of some events which occur “at the time of the end”. In these verses we read of a Northern invader called “the King of the north” sweeping down through Turkey and on down through the glorious land of Israel “like a whirlwind".

In verse 42 and 43 we read:

"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…"

Britain A Trading Nation Again

As Britain Exits Europe, it Looks to Reconnect with the Young Lions.Britain A Trading Nation Again

As the British nation struggles to be reborn after the BREXIT vote interesting moves are afoot to re-awaken its former commonwealth ties.

What is interesting is the comments being made by some of the leading personalities involved in the BREXIT campaign some of which are now part of the new government of Prime Minister Teresa May. These comments are echoing the words of the Bible, in shouting to us from the very news headlines that the Kingdom is near.

New British Prime Minister Teresa May

While much of the media still predicts gloom and doom, and certain European forces are bent on making BREXIT difficult for Britain, British Prime Minister Teresa May was very clear,

“BREXIT means BREXIT, and we are going to make a success of it.”

No doubt difficult times will be ahead, but the European reaction is forcing Britain to reconnect with its former colonies.

Europe Stronger Together

It was Nigel Farage, former leader of UKIP, being interviewed on his recent trip to the United States who stated:

“I got involved in politics because twenty five years ago I could see this European project was not about trade. It was not about being neighbours. It was about the creation of a state with a flag, and an anthem, and it wanted a police force, and then an army and everything else. I believed in my country and I believe in democracy.

This project has never had any legitimacy from the start. The founding fathers, as they 

EU Chair of Foreign Affairs, Elmar Brok

are called, of the European project decided they would use arguments about trade and economics to stealthily put people into a political union. They concluded that it was the existence of nation state that had led to war, namely WWI and WWII, and that if they abolished nation state, those terrible things could never happen again.

I remember, when I was first there, when I was first elected to that place, in the first week, I met a German politician called Elmar Brok, who is Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the European Parliament, and quite a significant European politician, and Brock saying to me, “Nigel, you don’t understand, on our own none of us are big enough. Only by being together economically and militarily can we challenge and overtake America. And history shows that when people build empires to try and be bigger than somebody else, far from leading to security it probably gives the opposite effect.

What is fascinating about this reflection is two things:

  1. The EU wasn’t about trade which is what Britain was interested in.
  2. The EU has no power as individual states, but if they combine their power they can take on the super powers of the world.

This second comment is of great significance, because it echoes the very words of Revelation 17:

“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. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (Revelation 17:12–13)

Elmar Brok’s comments are unwittingly almost a quote from Revelation 17 describing the nation states of Europe combining to form the beast.

Britain’s Interest is in Trade

Farage went on to reflect about what BREXIT means for British relations with the USA (which was discussed in length last week), and the commonwealth nations:

Former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage in the USA

In terms of developing our international trade relationships, which we’ve been banned from doing for the past 40 years, I think the message politically, to America, is that your oldest and best ally is now free to be that once again. We will be outside a European foreign policy, able to make our own decisions; outside the military structures which I think threatened on an ongoing basis our cooperation through NATO and elsewhere. In terms of trade…. the United Kingdom and America could conclude a free trade deal, and we could do it in a matter of months…

How does it all look? What is going to happen? What is going to happen is you guys are going to see a lot of Liam Fox, who I’ve explained already, through the Atlantic Council and everything else, is a genuinely pro-American British Politician. He is going to be reaching out here in America. And I hope that gets reciprocated.

There are countries all over the world: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, hints from India, countries all over the world wanting to be at the front of the que (are you listening Obama?), who want to do trade deals with us…

BREXIT OVER – WHAT IS NEXT FOR EUROPE

Power As Kings

The world asks What's Next for Europe? The Bible has the answer: Resurrection of the Beast.THE COMING EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE

With Britain out of the way, the nations of Europe look 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. 

In the last few Bible in the News articles we have focused on Britain’s exit from Europe, fulfilling the Bible’s prophetic requirements, and the anticipation of generations of Bible students. Now we move our attention to what everyone is asking,

What is next?

What Next? The Bible’s answer:

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 in 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)

Impression of the Beast Described in Revelation17

European Beast image from Revelations

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.

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?
