God's Plan for this World and You

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

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

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

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

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

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

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

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

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

Russias Next Move on Europe

An aggressive Russia is positioning itself to take more of the Caucasus region, while pushing into Europe.Putin showing aggression towards the Caucasus Region

Russia has again proven itself relentless in its push against the Caucasus region and the borders of Europe to retake the territory once held by Soviet Union. Conflicts are again flaring up in the Caucasus between Muslim Azerbaijan and Christian Armenia; in the Balkans Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are shaking in their boots, along with Poland. The USA is sending an additional battalion to Europe to bolster protection against an aggressive Russia along the borders of the former Soviet states. 

Stirring up Trouble in the Caucasus.

As we sit comfortably in our homes in the “western world,” having enjoyed thirty years of relative peace from any form of aggression, watching wars fought in exotic places many miles away, the situation is changing as the Russian bear begins to make its move into the Caucasus region, and against the European borders. 

The Russian bear begins to make its move into the Caucasus region, and against the European borders.

The Wall Street Journal headlined with an article entitled “Vladimir Putin’s Next European Front,” carrying a subheading, “A conflict in the Caucasus is the Kremlin’s latest chance to stir trouble in its neighborhood as Washington stands by.” The article, dated April 6, 2016 gave a status report on the region:

Clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia this week claimed at least 60 lives in the most intense fighting between the neighbors since a 1994 cease-fire “froze” their conflict. Tensions seemed to de-escalate by Wednesday, but clearly the war between Azeris and Armenians is no longer frozen. At stake is the future of a sensitive region dominated by the Kremlin and crisscrossed by Eurasia’s larger political and ideological faultlines.

The article continued:

The conflict is escalating now for a reason: The Caucasus is increasingly shaky. Since the early 1990s, the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict has been at the center of a political divide in the region. Moscow backed Armenia, and the unresolved conflict kept Armenia tightly in Moscow’s camp. That alienated Azerbaijan, which allied with Turkey and the West in response. Iran, fearful of a secular and oil-rich Azerbaijan courting the U.S., aligned with Armenia and Russia.

So what we are seeing develop is an Armenian-Russian-Iranian alliance, against a Azerbaijan-Turkey-Western Alliance. Exactly, the picture painted by the prophets. The article continued.

Adding to Mr. Putin’s problem in the region, Azerbaijan is the only country bordering both Russia and Iran, and so is crucial to any East-West corridor linking Europe to Central Asia and beyond. Controlling that artery is essential to Mr. Putin’s imperial project...

The geographical area of Armenia and Azerbaijan sits on Russia’s underbelly between Georgia and Iran

The geographical area of Armenia and Azerbaijan sits on Russia’s underbelly between Georgia and Iran, and sandwiched between the Black and Caspian Seas. Historically, it was settled by the Scythians and became part of the Median empire which combined with the Persians to defeat the Babylonians under Cyrus the Great. It was later swallowed by Alexander the Great’s Grecian empire, and became a key part of the Seleucid Empire when the Greek empire was divided. It was absorbed into the Byzantine Empire until the Islamic Umayyad Caliphate conquered it in the 7th century, and was taken over by the Seljuk Turks, and later by Tamerlane. It has been involved in almost all successive empires of Daniel’s image, (Daniel 2), and under the rule four angels which overflowed the river Euphrates under the 6th Trumpet of Revelation (Revelation 9:13-21). Although it is considered by some a “backwater” today, the region has played heavily into Bible Prophecy. It is part of the region that will play a role again, joining with Gog and Russia under the name of Togarmah as is described in Ezekiel 38:

“Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” (Ezekiel 38:6)

Togarmah  describes the region of the Caucasus between the Black and Caspian seas and encroaching into the area of Turkey. This area is to be “guarded” by Russia as Ezekiel continues on to describe to us:

“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)

Jerusalem the Capital of God’s Kingdom on Earth

The City of Jerusalem today

Jesus said to his disciples, “I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God's throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King” (Matthew 5:34 –5).

What did he mean by this?

Old Testament Jerusalem

If we go back to Genesis and read the story of Abraham, we find the great promises that God made to him. God promised that Abraham would have many descendants; that he would possess the land we call ‘Israel’; and that one of his descendants would bring blessing to all mankind. This is a short summary of what God said to Abraham in Genesis 12:1–3; 15:4–7 and 22:15–18; it is well worth reading these verses. Genesis chapter 22 tells us that Abraham had such faith that he was even willing to sacrifice his son Isaac to God, although at the last moment God’s angel stopped him.

This happened on Mount Moriah, which is the place where Jerusalem was built many years later.

A thousand years later King David and then his son Solomon lived and reigned over a kingdom where the laws were God’s laws, so that for a time it was actually described as ‘the Kingdom of the Lord’ (see 1 Chronicles 28:5). Jerusalem was the capital of this kingdom. 400 years later, the city was destroyed by the Babylonians because most of the Jews disobeyed God’s laws, but God spoke through the Old Testament prophets and reassured everyone that in time to come David’s kingdom would be restored.

Here are some promises God made in Amos 9:11–15:

"On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the Gentiles who are called by My name," says the Lord who does this thing… “I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”

Jesus, the Great King

Before Jesus was born, the angel promised his mother that “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David. And he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end" (Luke 1:323).

Isaiah chapter 2 shows us that the kingdom ruled from Jerusalem will be worldwide:

WORLD EVENTS TO WATCH IN LIGHT OF BIBLE PROPHECY

UPDATED: MAY 2017

Watch these EVENTS and you will see Bible Prophecy unfolding before your eyes!

1

Britain will leave the EU with BREXIT because Britain will lead the King of the South in resisting Russia and the EU’s invasion of the Middle East.  So despite all those who think this shouldn’t happen it will.

See this Article that explains why this must be.  

BRITAIN MUST LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION

2

Europe must become a SUPERSTATE with one voice See Revelation 17:12-13 

WHAT IS NEXT FOR EUROPE

3

This SUPERSTATE will be led and dominated by Germany and France. See Ezekiel 38:1-5 (Germany is referred to by her ancient name of "Magog" and France as "Gomer").  Europe must have their own United Army in order to join Russia in invading the Middle East as Ezekiel 38 describes.

4

This SUPERSTATE will develop a hostile political view towards Israel over attempts to continue to establish a lasting Middle East Peace Agreement.  At the centre of this is likely to be the position of Jerusalem See Zechariah 12:1-3

On the other hand, Britain and America will support Israel which will lead to political conflict with the EU.

5

RUSSIA will become a key Partner of this European SUPERSTATE. To some extent this is true trading wise already, but Russia must become even closer both politically and militarily. See Ezekiel 38:1-8 

See this article: Russia is fulfilling Bible Prophecy Today!

6

America's standing in world politics must decline as will America's presence in Europe.  For Russia must become dominant in Europe which means America's influence must decline.  Britain along with America and the Commonwealth Countries will be a voice against Russia and Europe (King of the North) as the King of the South supporting Israel, Egypt and the Arab Gulf States.  See Daniel 11:40-44 and Ezekiel 38:13

7

Turkey must be joined somehow to the EU and or Russia.  This could come about if Turkey was to become a member of the EU or European Army.  Of course Turkey might also just join directly with Russia as her chances of ever being a member of the EU has always been in doubt as she is predominantly Muslim and the EU is Catholic.  See Ezekiel 38:1-8 (Turkey is referred to by her ancient name "Togarmah")  See this article: Turkey in Bible Prophecy

8

Europe must have its own Army Command and Control Centre so either they will set one up in place of NATO or NATO will somehow morph into a European Army with Britain, Canada and America leaving or NATO as we know it today coming to an end.  See Ezekiel 38:1-8

See this article: Cracks Appearing in NATO

9

Russia will somehow be involved with this European Army either directly ie. as a member or as a close Ally replacing America. Russia has to become a 'guard' or 'commander' as the word implies to Europe. See Ezekiel 38:7

10

Persia (modern day Iran), Ethiopia and Libya will also join this confederated army as it moves down into the Middle East.  See Ezekiel 38:5

11

Russia will lead the EU in becoming the King of the North. See Daniel 11:40

12

Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia must form a close alliance. See Daniel 11:40

See this article: Stirring Up of The King of the South

13

Britain will become the key World Political Leader of the King of the South that will revolve around Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia and other Southern Gulf Arab States, along with America and the Commonwealth Countries. See Daniel 11:40

See this article: King of the South is fulfilling Bible Prophecy

14 There must be a new development in the Middle East that will bring stability and PEACE as Bible Prophecy requires Israel to be dwelling at Peace with her immediate neighbours before Russia and Europe invade The Middle East in the Battle of Armageddon See Ezekiel 38:7-12  

"7 “Be ready and keep ready, you and all your hosts that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. 8 After many days you will be mustered. In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and now dwell securely, all of them. 9 You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you."

See this article to learn more about: The Middle East and Bible Prophecy

See this article to learn more about: Will Israel see Peace Under President Trump?

15

The Catholic Church and the Russian and Greek Orthodox Churches will UNITE.  We are witnessing slow moves towards this today.  So this is another sign to WATCH

See this article to learn more about this development.

CATHOLICISM AND ORTHODOX CHURCHES TO UNITE

16

But there is much more that we could list here eg:

·        Russia will become more dominant in the Middle East

·        At the time of the end when Armageddon takes place, there will be "hooks" in Russia's "jaw" that brings them and Europe to invade the Middle East. See Ezekiel 38:4

17

World Problems will continue to increase, causing mankind to despair at his inability to solve such great and many problems.  From world conflicts, terrorism to climate change.

Luke 21:24-28

“25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 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.”

18

Russia calls for Partnership of Civilizations in Europe

Russia's foreign minister lays out Russia's view of a New World Order.

Russia sees itself as the successor to the Byzantine Empire, the champion of Christianity, a leader of an assembly nations who is to unseat the failed American hegemony over Europe, create a New European Order, with Russia at its center, and take on the burden of world problems. The Bible paints the same picture.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey LavrovRecently the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote an article for Global Affairs magazine where he reflected on Russia’s past and future.

In the lengthy article he attempted to correct the picture painted by western propaganda of Russia’s development and current place in the world.

Russia the successor to the Byzantine Empire:

Lavrov described the rise of the Kievan Rus its adoption of Christianity in 988, over 1028 years ago. He showed how Russia was the defender of Christianity during the Mongolian invasion and successor to the Byzantine Empire:

Rus bent under but was not broken by the heavy Mongolian yoke, and managed to emerge from this dire trial as a single state, which was later regarded by both the West and the East as the successor to the Byzantine Empire that ceased to exist in 1453. An imposing country stretching along what was practically the entire eastern perimeter of Europe, Russia began a natural expansion towards the Urals and Siberia, absorbing their huge territories.

Lavrov’s understanding of Russia’s development is in keeping with John Thomas, and other Bible prophecy students, who wrote about the origins of Russia from a Biblical perspective. It is the successor to the Byzantine Empire, and became the dragon of Revelation when the Russian ruler assumed the title of Czar or Caesar, and Russia became the third Rome.

Lavrov reflected on the glory of Russia’s previous leaders such as Peter the Great, who put Russia in the center of Peter the Greatpolitical decision making in Europe:

Relying on tough domestic measures and resolute, and successful, foreign policy, Peter the Great managed to put Russia into the category of Europe’s leading countries in a little over two decades. Since that time Russia’s position could no longer be ignored. Not a single European issue can be resolved without Russia’s opinion.

He wrote of Catherine the Great who put Russia into the center of military decision making in Europe:

Russia’s size, power and influence grew substantially under Catherine the Great when, as then Chancellor Alexander Bezborodko put it, “Not a single cannon in Europe could be fired without our consent.”

These reflections are by design, the implication being that moving forward, no European issues will be resolved without Russian’ opinion, and no guns will be fired in Europe without Russian consent. Anything else would be tragic, as he went on to state.

Attempts to Unite Europe without Russia have been Tragic

Reflecting on the current situation with the European Union and NATO, Lavrov drew on historical attempts to unite Europe under Napoleon which did not include Russia in the decision making:

During at least the past two centuries any attempts to unite Europe without Russia and against it have inevitably led to grim tragedies, the consequences of which were always overcome with the decisive participation of our country. I’m referring, in part, to the Napoleonic wars upon the completion of which Russia rescued the system of international relations that was based on the balance of forces and mutual consideration for national interests and ruled out the total dominance of one state in Europe.

Russian Emperor Alexander IAccording to Lavrov, Russia saved the day bay in Napoleonic times. Quoting the Russian emperor Alexander I he drew an analogy with today:

“there can be no more English, French, Russian or Austrian policy. There can be only one policy – a common policy that must be accepted by both peoples and sovereigns for common happiness.”

This vision of the Czars, and now of the current leadership of Russia is also in keeping with Bible prophecy. Ezekiel talks of an alliance nations that spans Europe and Russia:

“And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the prince Rosh [RSV] of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him… (Ezekiel 38:2-3)

Historians identify Rosh with Russia, Meshech with the Muscovy people who gave their name to Moscow, Tubal with the area of Tobolsk and Siberia, the land of Magog with what we knew as Eastern Europe, and Gomer with France and Germany.  Again John Thomas, writing in Elpis Israel looked for the development of the Czar’s and the current Russian administration’s vision of Europe:

“Gogue of the land Ma-gogue”, that is, styling the ruler of Magogue by the latter syllable of the name of the country over which he rules. We have seen that Magogue is the region extending from the Ros, or Russia, to the Rhine, comprehending Wallachia, Transylvania, Hungary, and Germany. Of course, the prophecy must be future, because the Prince of the Ros is the Gogue of Magogue; and as yet no Emperor of Russia has been also Emperor of Germany, etc.” (John Thomas, 1848. Elpis Israel, p385)

Ezekiel adds to this confederation Western Europe by the addition of Gomer and all his bands in verse 6:

“Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” (Ezekiel 38:6)

Again, Thomas draws upon ancient historians to make his conclusion on Gomer and his bands:

In this general description may easily be discerned that extended portion of the West of Europe, comprehending ancient Gaul, Belgium, and the countries bordering upon them, which constituted in our day the Napoleon empire. Gomer, then, points immediately to France… Their country, according to the best modern geographers and historians, was bounded on the north by the Ocean; on the west by the Ocean and the Rhine; on the south by the Maine; and on the east by the Weser (A river running through Germany).”

Lavrov’s vision of Russia united with Europe is in keeping with the picture painted by Ezekiel in chapter 38.

These nations are not just united geographically, militarily and politically but by a common ideology.

Out of the Mouth of the Dragon

Lenin leader of the Russian RevolutionLavrov then countered Western criticism that painted the Russian Revolution of 1917 “as a barbaric coup that dragged down all of European history.” He pointed out that the Russian Revolution was part of a movement that swept Europe:

Undoubtedly, the Russian Revolution was a major event which impacted world history in many controversial ways. It has become regarded as a kind of experiment in implementing socialist ideas, which were then widely spread across Europe. The people supported them, because wide masses gravitated towards social organisation with reliance on the collective and community principles.

Lavrov’s assessment of the Russian Revolution is in harmony with the Biblical prophecies about the “socialist” experiment that would effect Europe. Revelation 16 describes the threefold doctrine that was incubated by the French Revolution and burst out across Europe:

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:13–14)

Who is the Real Anti-Christ

The Anti-Christ RevealedProphecy Is A Popular Topic Today

Bible prophecy is becoming an extremely popular subject for discussion in today's Christian world. Ten or fifteen years ago it was difficult to find any books on prophecy in Bible book stores, but now entire shelves are stocked with them. Furthermore, we find in today's Christian television and radio programs that prophecy is becoming an increasingly popular subject, and as time goes on, it seems to be gaining a wider audience than ever before.

Many people have now realized that the return of the Jews to their land and the rebirth of the nation of Israel is an example of Bible prophecy being fulfilled in our day. They further have seen that prophecy indicates Jesus Christ will soon return and Russia will eventually attack and temporarily defeat Israel. However, when we examine in more detail the events which will occur at the time of the end, we find there are many interpretations as to when Jesus will return and how the end of this age will come about.  The Teaching of Anti-Christ is just one of those we want to spend a few moments looking at now.

What Does the Bible Teach?

Before we examine the ideas of the future Antichrist theory, let us review what the scriptures teach regarding the return of Jesus. The Bible describes several specific events which Jesus, acting under God's authority, will accomplish when he returns to the earth. It is important to note and understand these events since most in Christendom today are unfamiliar with them. Five of the most prominent ones are as follows:

1. THE MILITARY DEFEAT OF RUSSIA

In Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 the prophet describes the invasion of Israel by Russia's army. Though Russia is not mentioned specifically, the names given: Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal exactly correspond to the geographical area of Russia at the time Ezekiel wrote.

"Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophecy against him. . .'' (38:2, NASB)

According to the prophecy, Russia will attack the young nation of Israel - ". . . in the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land where people were gathered from many nations upon the mountains of Israel . . . You will advance . . . you will be like a cloud covering the land . . ." (38:8-9)

In the midst of an apparent victory, Russia will meet with sudden destruction. God working and manifested through Jesus and the immortalized saints, will defeat the invading Russian army.

". . . when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, my wrath will be roused . . . I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain upon him . . . torrential rains and hailstones, fire and brimstone. So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord. (38:17-23, see also 39:1-6)

2. A NEW COVENANT TO BE MADE WITH ISRAEL

Following the destruction of the Russian army, the Jews in Israel will realize that it was Jesus who saved them from certain annihilation and will recognize him for the first time as their Saviour (Zechariah 12:10-14). A new covenant will then be made by Jesus with the Jews:

"Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah . . .'' (Jeremiah 31:31)

"I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will bless them and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My dwelling place shall be with them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Then the nations will know that I the Lord sanctify, Israel, when my sanctuary is in the midst of them for evermore." (Ezekiel 37:26-28, see also Jeremiah 32:36-41 and Romans 11:25-27).

3. THE REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE TN JERUSALEM

In Ezekiel chapters 40 through 48 and again in Zechariah 14:20-21 there is a clear indication that the temple first built by Solomon, rebuilt by Nehemiah and destroyed in A.D. 70 by the Romans, will be re-established in Jerusalem. It will be situated on Mt. Zion, and animal sacrifices will again be offered by the people.

"And on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, "Holy to the LORD." And the pots in the house of the LORD shall be as the bowls before the altar; {21} and every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be sacred to the LORD of hosts, so that all who sacrifice may come and take of them and boil the flesh of the sacrifice in them. And there shall no longer be a trader in the house of the LORD of hosts on that day." (Zechariah 14:20-21, see also Isaiah 56:7)

GOD RULES IN THE KINGDOM OF MEN

Daniel 4:30-32

“30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the THE MOST HIGH GOD RULES IN THE KINGDOM OF MENkingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? 31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.”

As we look down through history we can see how God’s hand has been engaged among the nations making this passage a reality among the Kingdoms of Men to serve God’s Purpose.

Yes man might think he is in control of his own destiny and that is true when it comes to believing in God of not and living forever or dying forever.

But God has a purpose with man and this earth and that purpose has been revealed in the Bible for all to read and learn of.  More than 3000yrs ago we have specific prophecies spoken by God that have all come to pass and are yet coming to pass in the very world we live in today.

No matter what look at whether it is the rise of the successive Kingdoms of man from Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, Rome or the rise of the EU or BREXIT or the latest 2016 USA Presidential Elections we can see God’s hand in all of this ensuring that His Purpose overall is and will be accomplished despite what man my think or do.

Through all of the Bible we are told that Israel is central to God’s purpose, so that whatever happens with Israel we can be sure that God’s hand will be involved somehow either in allowing it to happen or in saving His people from an otherwise dangerous situation.

The Nation of Israel is God’s Witness to this world

It is a fact that literally thousands of Bible verses speak of Israel's future:

Consider the following passages that have been fulfilled:

1.     Scattering of Israel, Deuteronomy 28 v 64 (fulfilled in AD 135 by the Romans),

2.     Persecution of Israel, Deuteronomy 28 v 65 - 67 (fulfilled down the ages, and most notably by Hitler),

3.     Regathering of Israel, Deuteronomy 30 v 1-5, Ezekiel 37 v 6, 13; 38 v 23 (fulfilled in 1948 when the state of Israel was once again declared),

4.     Present conflicts with the Arabs, Ezekiel 36, Obadiah (ongoing fulfilment until Christ returns).

5.     Ezekiel 38 reveals to us the alignment of nations who will engage in one final last conflict with Israel at the centre.

Just step back and let it sink in as to how unlikely it would be for anyone to be able to predict the history of the Jewish people in advance.  It would be unthinkable that Wales (part of the UK and being a country roughly the same size as Israel) could be invaded, its people scattered throughout the world and continually persecuted.  It would be even more unthinkable for the Welsh to be gathered back to Wales 2000 years later.  How could the Welsh maintain their identity?  The whole situation is improbable.  Even more improbable is the suggestion that someone could have predicted that this would happen.  Yet this has happened to the Jews, and the Bible did predict it. Surely the Bible is worth a hearing then?

Britains relationship with the EU set to change

New EU deal goes down like a lead balloon

The draft deal released

On Tuesday this week 2nd Februay 2016, a draft agreement was released of David Cameron’s proposed reforms. The two key areas of the deal are around fresh EU immigrants claiming benefits as soon as they arrive in the UK and the UK having the right to use a “red card” to block unwanted EU laws.

David Cameron has stated he is "happy to be judged" on his EU reform deal and has publicly stated that he believes it will be enough to satisfy the concerns of the public and allow the UK to remain part of the EU. However the proposed reforms are not fully in place with David Cameron being set to meet key European Union figures over the next few weeks to seek them to back the deal aimed at keeping Britain in the EU. Once this is achieved, if indeed it is, the deal will then be put to the UK public to vote on whether to stay in the EU under the terms of the new deal or to leave it.

However the draft deal has not gone down too well both at home in the UK or among the European leaders.

Not a snowball's chance in Hades

This is how Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party responded in a speech in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on February the 3rd:

"Well it wasn't supposed to be like this was it? Because Mr Cameron's renegotiation began with really big intentions, treaty change, he was going to control the free movement of people, he was going to achieve a fundamental change not just in Britain's relationship with the European Union but reform the EU itself.

And what we got was a letter from Mr Tusk in which there is no treaty change, no powers returned to the United Kingdom and no control over our borders at all. In fact it was hardly worth the wait, it is really rather pathetic.

But there is of course one more chance for the Prime Minister because he goes to the European Summit in a couple of weeks’ time and like Oliver Twist he will parade in front of the other leaders and say please can we have some more concessions. I find it rather humiliating that a British Prime Minister has to do this but I'm certain of one thing; he won't get another thing.

UKIP's Nigel Farage responds to Britain's so called deal to stay in the EU

Because just look at the substance of this. We have an emergency brake on migrant benefits, wow. It was supposed to be a total ban on migrant benefits for up to four years so it is hardly an emergency brake, it is more of a hand brake turn. And the Prime Minister is saying we've got a red card, isn't that wonderful? Well what that means is if a majority of parliaments in the European Union can say to Mr Juncker they don't want one of his directives, is that a cause for celebration? I mean if 15 parliaments couldn't stop a piece of law we would be living in a communist dictatorship. And what I've gone through here are the good bits.

The most bizarre thing is that Mr Cameron said that with this deal he would now vote for Britain to join the European Union. Let's have a little think about that.

If the question in June was should we join the EU we'd have to tell the British people you must surrender the control and sovereignty of your parliament and have 75 percent of your laws made somewhere else.

Your supreme court will not be supreme; you will be overruled by a court of Luxembourg made up by people who aren't even judges.

You will have to give up your fishing grounds, including in some places 200 miles of the North Sea. And you must cut your links with the Common Wealth and the wider world because you are no longer fit to negotiate your own global trade deals.

Oh, and by the way for all of this you will be paying 55 million pounds a day as a membership fee.

Would the British people vote for that? Not a snowball's chance in Hades and all we have to do is recognise that while the politicians and the big banks and the big businesses will in this referendum defend their own vested self-interest, it’s people power that will win this referendum and after we've won this referendum I hope that many other countries will in Europe too."

Daily Mail Headline response to David Cameron's deal

Headline news - The Daily Mail Tuesday 2nd February.

The Daily Mail on Tuesday 2nd of February had the headline “Is that it then Dave?”. Quoting one Euros-sceptic the article stated “What the government is asking for from the EU is trivial - these proposals will not take back control from the EU. These gimmicks have been ignored by the EU before and will be ignored again as they will not be in the EU treaty".

Online the Mail reported on Feb 4th that "Furious Tory MPs claim 'the thin gruel has been further watered down' as they blast the Prime Minister's draft deal with Brussels.” There certainly has been a lot of negative press about the new deal. In some parts of the UK it really has gone down like a lead ballon.

Not just in the UK though - it seems that when the draft treaty was revealed to the European Leaders themselves they were not that happy with it’s contents. The BBC reported on February the 4th that "None of David Cameron's fellow EU leaders are happy with his reform proposals as they stand, an EU source has told the BBC.” See full article.

The Telegraph ran an article on Friday 5th February entitled "'If the Brits want to leave, let them leave,' say EU leaders”. The article went on to state: "European Parliament president Martin Schulz says in London today: 'Many of my colleagues say behind closed doors: 'Don't stop a rolling stone. If the Brits want to leave, let them leave’"

"Ever close union" not for the UK

JERUSALEM - Who’s City Is It?

Jerusalem - Who's City Is IT?

The question of the true ownership of Jerusalem has often been posed and people who believe in the authority of the Bible as the Word of God will know that the real answer to this age-old query is to be found in the pages of Scripture. There, and there alone, we will find God’s position on the matter. The question, "Does Jerusalem belong to Arab, Jew, Palestinian or Turk?", becomes irrelevant when considered from a Biblical standpoint.

Read the rest of this article and discover the true owner of Jerusalem and the land of Israel/Palestine in the light of Bible Prophecy.

Jerusalem - Who’s City Is It?

The question of the true ownership of Jerusalem has often been posed and people who believe in the authority of the Bible as the Word of God will know that the real answer to this age-old query is to be found in the pages of Scripture. There, and there alone, we will find God’s position on the matter.

Bible Passages

Here is a brief overview of some relevant passages. You might like to look them up for yourself to see the full wonder of the purpose of God with Jerusalem. The first is a passage with a location which is easy to remember:

"Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her" (Ezekiel 5:5).

God is speaking and here He states that HE has chosen the location of the city. Clearly it is HIS city and the Lord God Himself takes ownership of it. The passage does not say that Jerusalem is in the middle of hills and valleys, which would be true. Nor is the point that it is in the midst of villages and towns, which is also true.

It states that God has set this city in the midst of ‘nations and countries’. That gives the statement a truly international status which, as we shall see, is perfectly appropriate in the light of what is due to happen there. This was said about Jerusalem at a time when cities such as London, New York, Paris and Moscow did not exist. Other great cities did: cities like Babylon, Nineveh, Thebes and Alexandria. They each had been, were, or were becoming, great cities of the ancient world. Yet it is Jerusalem of which the prophet speaks. Perhaps we can imagine the scorn in the mind of some non-believers at that time that such a small and apparently insignificant city should be chosen.

Britain's Exit from Europe is Inevitable!

Bible prophecy indicates that Britain will be at odds with a Catholic dominated Europe.

The anticipated referendum to decide whether or not Britain should exit from the EU, an increasingly hot topic especially in Britain!  During late 2015 and early 2016 we have seen increasingly dramatic headlines on a British exit (i.e. Brexit).

Daily Telegraph (Dec 10, 2015) – David Cameron: Migrant crisis could force Brexit as voters say 'get me out of here'
British voters increasingly want to “push Europe away” because of the migrant and Eurozone crises.

Daily Telegraph (Dec 14, 2015) – UK exit from European Union on a knife edge, as poll shows British public are now 50/50 over leaving

The Independent (Jan 5, 2016) – EU referendum: David Cameron gives Conservative ministers freedom to campaign for a 'leave' vote
Prime Minister announces move designed to limit the political damage caused by Tory splits on Europe

The BBC (Jan 14, 2016) – EU disastrous for UK, says cabinet minister Chris Grayling

Say NO to EU campaignOver the last two years opposition to Britain’s membership in the European Union has been steadily mounting. A once little known party, the UK Independence Party (or UKIP), which is campaigning for British exit from the EU and stricter immigration policy, experienced a surge in popularity of almost 10% receiving over 3.8 million votes in the 2015 General Election, surpassed only by the Liberals and ruling Conservatives. David Cameron’s Conservatives narrowly won the election after promising an in/out referendum on EU membership by 2017 and “the pressure is gradually ratcheting up” on Cameron to negotiate changes in the free movement of people across EU member states. Recent polls put voters for out at 38% and 41% versus for in at 44% and 42% (the rest don’t know what to do). As the headlines show the Syrian migrant and Eurozone economic crises have supported a vote for Brexit. So far Cameron has continued to return empty handed from the negotiating table. This last week Chris Grayling, the leader of the house of Commons, and member of David Cameron’s cabinet, has said that “remaining within the European Union under the UK’s current membership terms would be ‘disastrous’…” and that “the EU was heading towards closer integration – a path the UK ‘will not and should not follow.” Considering what the Bible has to say, we expect this trend will certainly continue!

The prophets describe two opposing alliances. On the one side we see Europe’s ten horn nations (as described in Daniel 7, and represented by the iron and clay feet of Daniel 2) aligned with Russia under the Roman Catholic influence of the mother harlot (Revelation 17; Ezekiel 38) at war with Israel and the Christ Lamb. On the other side we see the southern Arabian power allied with the “western” protestant trading nations, including Britain, Canada, Australia, and the United States (i.e. “Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions” – Ezekiel 38:13). As Isaiah shows, “the ships of Tarshish will come first, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them,” (Isaiah 60:9) and therefore seem to be among the first to submit to the “Mighty One of Jacob” or the Messiah and bring their wealth for his use. So, we see Britain and Europe on different sides of both a political and a religious crisis. We do not have space at present to explain the connection with Tyre, Tarshish and the young lions; however this subject is thoroughly explained in other articles eg: BIBLE PROPHECY AND THE ALIGNMENT OF NATIONS AT THE TIME OF THE END

Although Britain is in a state of unbelief at the present time, it is still a fact that Britain’s roots are Protestant, so called because of those who protested against and separated from the Roman Church. In contrast Europe has ‘Christian roots’, both Roman and Byzantine. It was Pope John Paul II who said in his 1995 encyclical “the Church must breathe with her two lungs! In the first millennium of the history of Christianity, this expression refers primarily to the relationship between Byzantium and Rome.” (Ut unum sint; That They May Be One).

Man’s Broken Promises and the Coming of Christ

How the myths of Britain's broken promises is part of the madness that will bring the nations to Armageddon

One hundred years ago, from December 2015, the 6th of the McMahon-Hussein letters was sent.  This was a series of ten letters [1], between Henry McMahon, British High Commissioner of Egypt and Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca. 

Hussein's Dream

 Hussein began the exchange with a demand for a great Arab kingdom (see map).  In exchange Hussein promised to unite the Arabs in support of Britain’s battle against the Turks, in Arabia, Iraq & Syria – the battle to dry up the great river Euphrates (Revelation 16v12).  McMahon, with certain caveats, accepted.

However, only four months later, in May 1916, Britain also made a deal with France, the Sykes-Picot Agreement [2].  This Anglo-French agreement divided Hussein’s proposed kingdom into two spheres of influence (“a” and “b”); one for 

 

This Anglo-French (Sykes-Picot) agreement appears, on the face of it, to be a direct contradiction of the assurances given, by McMahon to Hussein.  However, the reality is that it deals with “spheres of influence” NOT with direct rule.  These areas were subsequently ratified, at the Paris Peace Conference, as “mandates” granted to these great powers.

And as Wikipedia tells us that “The objective of the League of Nations Mandate system was to administer parts of the defunct Ottoman Empire, which had been in control of the Middle East since the 16th century, "until such time as they are able to stand alone."”[3]

So instead of the Anglo-French Agreement being in direct opposition to the commitments made to Hussein, it was intended, at least by some, to be the means of putting them into practice. 

McMahon to Hussein

Of course, Hussein didn’t get everything he wanted.  But then neither did anybody else.  Neither the French, nor the British, and especially not the Jews got what they expected, what they thought they had been promised, and definitely not all they had hoped for.  However, Hussein did get a great deal.

Abdullah King of Jordan

Firstly, in 1921, Britain created a protectorate for Abdullah (below), Sharif Hussein’s son, and he became the Emir of the Emirate of Transjordan, where he reigned as autocrat.  In 1946 Transjordan became fully independent, and Abdullah became its 1st king – and his line reigns in Jordan to this day.
