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 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)

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

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

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

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

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

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

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

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

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

The Judgement Day

The Bible says that “God has appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness...”

This day will come with the Return of Christ to the Earth.

Are you ready for Christ’s Return?

Are you prepared for the day of your judgement and the judgement of this World?

No matter what you do now or in the future, you will be caught up in the final day of judgement that God has set. 

It is a day when all people upon this earth will have their lives irrevocably changed forever whether they like it or not and no amount of money will be of any value to them in that day.

FOR GOD HAS APPOINTED A DAY OF JUDGEMENT FOR ALL MANKIND

This is what we read in the book of Acts chapter 17

“29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”

While some people will actually appear at the Judgement Seat of Christ set on the earth to judge the things they have done whether they be good or bad and reward them accordingly.  For most people on this earth this judgement will  be a ‘mass’ judgement as they take their chances in the midst of ‘a time of trouble such as there never was on the earth”.  This is described in Daniel chapter 12.

“1 And at that time shall Michael (Hebrew means ‘one like God’ and is a reference to Christ) stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.”

Where will you stand in this day is the question you need to ask yourself.

During and following this day Dramatic Changes will take place.

These changes are spoken of in the Bible as follows:

“Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel… and all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake…”

The Bible tells us that when Christ returns there will be massive worldwide earthquakes that will effectively put anScene's like this may not be far from reality end to the life man now lives ie. Power sources will be destroyed; buildings (all above 2 stories according to some scientists) will collapse.  Just imagine the massive piles of rubble that will be left in all the cities of man around the world.  The cities will be uninhabitable at this time.  The people who once lived in them will either be dead or an exiled survivor struggling to survive by day and night.  Apocalyptic scenes once seen only in movies will be somewhat of a reality in that day.

Let’s have a look at the Bible passages that speak of this:

Ezekiel 38:18-20

“18And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”

Earths FaultlinesGiven the nature of the fault lines in this region and how they join to all the major fault lines throughout the world (see map above left) some scientists have predicted that such a worldwide shaking of the earth could level every building above 2 stories.  Well this certainly seems to be the intent of the words in Ezekiel 38 ie. “...every wall shall fall to the ground.”

So with such a massive worldwide earthquake just imagine the devastation around the world, every major city will be a pile of rubble, dams will break, electricity will have been knocked out, communications will be knocked out along with international monetary systems, and no one will quite know where to start to try and put things back together.  In fact major cities around the world most likely will be abandoned as a pile of rubble.

The trigger point for this global earthquake will be the return of Christ standing on the Mount of Olives facing all the nations that have gathered there for battle.

Zechariah 14:1-5

“1Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then shall the LORD (represented by Christ) go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.”

EARTHQUAKES Sign of Christ's COMING!

The mount of Olives was the very place Christ was taken up into heaven from.  And as this was the last place he was seen, so he will reveal himself to all nations from this very spot and all nations shall shake at his presence.

EGYPT and 'The Precious Things' that Bring down the King of the North

Egypt is being prepared for an invasion by the King of the NorthEgypt's Wealth Old and New

Egypt has been going through civil turmoil in recent years. However an amazing discovery reveals that it is being positioned exactly where Bible prophecy says it will be in the time just before Jesus returns. Welcome to another Bible in the News.

Egypt at the time of the end

In Daniel chapter 11 we have some amazing details given to us about the state of Egypt in the time period just before the Lord Jesus Christ returns to the earth.

In Daniel 11 we have depicted before us the history of two key territories down through time. An area to the north of Israel ruled over by a succession of foreign powers termed in the prophecy “The King of the North” and the same in the south called “the King of the South”.

The prophecy begins in the time of the Greeks under Alexander the Great and depicts the state of these two power bases to the north and south down through time.

Verses 40-45 are of most significance to us as these verses are to do with “the time of the end”. They have not yet been fulfilled. Within this time period we read of how the “King of the North” sweeps down through Turkey, through Israel into Egypt. We here read of the details of Egypt at this time in verses 42-43:

"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” Daniel 11:42-43

The word “pleasant” is the hebrew “chemdah” which means “desirable”. This is telling us that an invading force, from the North will not only invade Egypt but will control her economy and desirable precious commodities.

A companion prophecy to this is found in Isaiah 19 which speaks of a cruel lord invading Egypt. Again, this is a future event because many parts have not yet been fulfilled. For example in verse 19 it talks of an alter being made in Egypt to Yahweh, the God of Israel which has not yet occurred.

As Bible students we believe from our understanding of the scriptures that we are indeed living in the time leading up to this invasion from the North. We read in other prophecies of this that this is the time when Jesus Christ returns to the earth to establish God’s Kingdom (for example Ezekiel 38 and Zechariah 14 as well as Daniel 12). Therefore we would expect Egypt to have “desirable” things in the time period leading up to, and obviously during this great invasion form the North. If we are indeed living at the cusp of this time then we should be able to begin to see Egypt’s commodities in the light of the prophecy - as being treasures and precious. So does Egypt have such things?

New gas find in Egypt

On the 30th of August this year an Italian company called Eni announced that it had found one of the world's largest natural gas fields off Egypt's coast.

Sir Isaac Newton Believed in God and Prophecy

Sir Isaac Newton is frequently mentioned as one of the leading lights the 18th century as his scientific discoveries strengthened the prevailing attitude of enlightenment without the need for God. Yet Isaac Newton firmly believed in God as the Creator who set in motion the laws of the universe.

Famous saying from Sir Isaac Newton

Here is a famous quotation from him sums up his attitude towards God:

“He who thinks half-heartedly will not believe in God;

but he who really thinks has to believe in God”

That statement was not just a challenge to his own generation: it stands as a challenge to all generations – to think deeply about God. He created man with the ability to think, to search out things and to reason; but all searching must begin with God.

Little Known Fact

Sir Isaac Newton has been called ‘the greatest scientific genius the world has known’ and this may be so; but not many people know that he had another love – the Bible. He was a friend of Maurice Johnson, who founded Spalding’s Gentlemen’s Society, and was himself an honorary member. It may have been somewhat difficult for Isaac to adhere to the rules of the Gentlemen’s Society of not talking about religion! For religion was his passion.

It is said that he spent less time on science than on theology. Best known for his scientific achievements, it is a little known fact that he wrote 1.3 million words on biblical subjects!

He was born in the manor house at Woolsthorpe near Grantham in Lincolnshire, now owned by the National Trust. Isaac’s father died before he was born and his mother, Hannah Ayscough, then remarried when he was three years old. He spent a lot of his childhood with his grandmother and went to the grammar school in Grantham. As an adult he studied in Cambridge, but   his love of the Bible was largely evident only when an auction of his non-scientific writings was held in 1936.

Sir Isaac NewtonNewton seldom made public pronouncements regarding his theology, yet he was an avid Bible student and once wrote:

But search the scriptures thyself and that by frequent reading and constant meditation upon what thou readest, and earnest prayer to God to enlighten thine understanding if thou desirest to find the truth.

Bible Prophecy

Newton was a believer in the Second Coming of Christ and readily discussed what the Bible had to say concerning the prophecies in Daniel and the Book of Revelation. He also held the belief in the unity of God and carried out a great deal of research on the nature of Christ’s relationship to his Father. He did considerable work on biblical numerology and was very fond of Bible study.

Newton loved Bible prophecy so much that he would debate with other like-minded people about the date of the end of the world. In a 1704 manuscript he describes his attempts to extract scientific information from the Bible:

“This I mention not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies  into discredit as often as their predictions fail. Christ comes as a thief in the night, and it is not for us to know the times and seasons which God hath put into his own breast.”

Dear Mr. Putin... get on with the job!

Bible students appeal to Mr. Putin to do what the finger of God has indicated.

One hundred and fifty eight years ago, John Thomas, Author of Elpis Israel, wrote a bold letter to the Emperor Nicholas, his words are fitting for the new Autocrat.

One hundred and fifty eight years ago, John Thomas, Author of Elpis Israel, Anatolia, Eureka and other works on Dear Mr. Putin... get on with the job!prophecy wrote a bold letter to the Emperor Nicholas, Autocrat and Czar of Russia – and published it as a witness for the proof of Bible prophecy.

With Vladimir Putin’s return to the role of President for the next 6-12 years, the role of Autocrat has been filled once again. In his victory speech, Putin stated: 

“I promised you we would win. We have won. Glory to Russia…  We have won in an open and honest battle. We proved that no-one can force anything on us.”

Denouncing attempts to “destroy Russia’s statehood and usurp power,” he declared:

“The Russian people have shown today that such scenarios will not succeed in our land … They shall not pass!”

Canada’s National Post reported of the common Russian, “They fear he could win another term in six years and rule until 2024 – almost as long as Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.” The paper reported one Russian as saying, “Emperor Putin has decided everything.”

Dear Mr. Putin

The words of John Thomas’ letter are fitting for the new Autocrat and so we restate them here, this time addressing them to Mr. Putin:

Tsar Putin the Autocrate of all RussiaEmperor – Sire - It has been truly said that “Knowledge is power.” It imparts to him who is fortunate enough to possess it firmness of purpose in all he undertakes. No enterprise needs more of this quality for its success than that in which your Majesty is involved. A necessity is laid upon you by Providence, which you cannot evade. God, however, works by means; and these, in your case, Sire, require that you should not fear your enemies, though all Europe be leagued against you. Being interested in the consummation [completion], I wish to see you firm and fearless,—politically, a head of gold, breast and arms of silver, body and thighs of brass, and legs of iron, before the world. To assist in intensifying your courage against the hosts of your adversaries, I have taken the liberty of contributing to your Majesty’s library the copy of “Anatolia” which accompanies this. May it reach you (if it interfere not with the Divine purpose) with acceptance; and, Sire, so far enlighten your Majesty’s mind as that you may perceive what the mission is to which you are called, and execute it to the subjection of all the crazy and iniquitous governments of Continental Europe to your imperial will.

That your Majesty may reign and prosper till you have commingled the iron nations of the old Roman territory with the clay of your own hereditary dominions, is the unfeigned and earnest hope of your Majesty’s well-wisher.

John Thomas, THE AUTHOR.

Russia Moves Into Syria Sign of Christ's Coming

Russia is making another grand move exactly as we would expect from Bible Prophecy.Russia Moves Into Syria is a Sign that we are moving closer to Christs Coming

Things are heating up in the Middle East as Russian activity increases. Many of the players mentioned in latter day Bible prophecy are being positioned into their roles as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.

Russian air strikes in Syria

We are living in momentous times. 

Russia began its air campaign in Syria last Wednesday on the 30th of October claiming that they are directly assisting the Syrians in countering terrorism.

The Russian operation in Syria amounts to the biggest deployment of Russian forces outside the former Soviet Union since the withdrawal from Afghanistan back in 1989. 

A US-led coalition has been conducting air strikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq since September last year. The Russians have not joined this coalition but have formed their own.

Nato and allied states have expressed concern that Russia is concentrating its attacks on rebel groups opposed to President Bashar al-Assad. Some of these groups are actually backed by the West, and not jihadist groups like ISIS.

A power block led by Russia

These incidents are exposing two very clear “sides”. Russia leading one and the United States leading the other.

On Sunday 4th October, the president of Syria, Assad made a startling claim. In a BBC article entitled "Syrian crisis: Assad warns of Mid-East destruction” the following was stated:

"Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said a coalition between Syria, Russia, Iran and Iraq must succeed "or else the whole region will be destroyed".

Mr Assad also criticised the US-led coalition and its air strikes in Syria and Iraq as counter-productive, saying that “terrorism had only spread."

This is all very exciting for Bible students who have for many years been expecting these power blocks to begin to appear in the Middle East.

Assad says Russia must succeed "or else the whole region will be destroyed"Assad has said that the coalition between Syria, Russia, Iran and Iraq must succeed "or else the whole region will be destroyed"

Last week on Tuesday 22nd of September CNN ran an article “Petraeus accuses Putin of trying to re-establish Russian Empire…” 

"Russian moves in Syria are designed to bolster and hold on to their naval base and airstrip along the Mediterranean coast of Syria, and shore up the al-Assad regime in order to preserve Russian influence in the Middle East, Petraeus said...

"I think that what Vladimir Putin would like to do is resurrect the Russian empire," he said.”

Back in 1849 Bible student John Thomas wrote the following in his book "Elpis Israel":

"The future movements of Russia are notable signs of the times, because they are predicted in the Scriptures of truth... 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; and salvation will be to those who not only looked for it, but have trimmed their lamps by believing the gospel of the kingdom unto the obedience of faith, and the perfection thereof in "fruits meet for repentance”

How could John Thomas, way back in 1849, be so confident that a dominant Russia would arise before the return of Christ? Because of Bible prophecy and particularly an understanding of Ezekiel chapter 38.

The prophecy of Ezekiel 38 speaks of a great invasion of the land of Israel by a coalition led by Russia just before the Lord Jesus Christ returns (See Ezekiel 38:1-9).

Russia’s surprise move into the Middle East

Russian troops and equipment pour into Syria to guard the regime from collapse.

The world is in shock that Russian forces are moving into Syria... the Bible clearly states the situation that will develop in the next little while. The power-blocks are moving into place setting the stage for the long anticipated return of Christ.

During September 2015 Russia has made a surprise military move into the Middle East, bringing planes, helicopters, tanks and troops into active service in Syria.

This past week White House Press Secretary John Earnest made the following statement:

White House Press Secretary John EarnestWhite House Press Secretary
John Earnest

“The United States is concerned by reports that Russia may have deployed additional military personnel and aircraft to Syria, precisely because it is difficult to decipher their intentions…. These steps could lead to greater loss of life, they could increase refugee flows, and risk confrontation with the counter ISIL opposition that is operating inside of Syria.”

 CNN reported on Wednesday September 23rd:

Russia may be preparing to station troops at two new sites in Syria as it continues its rapid military buildup in the conflict-ravaged nation, a research firm says….

The Jane's analysts said they had observed "a substantial increase" in Russian combat jets near Latakia, counting four Su-30SM multirole combat aircraft, 12 Su-25 ground attack aircraft, 12 Su-24M attack fighters.

That chimes with an assessment provided to CNN by a U.S. official earlier this week that Russia has more than 25 fighter and attack aircraft, 15 helicopters, nine tanks, three surface-to-air missile systems and at least 500 personnel on the ground in Syria.

The article points out key American figures are sounding the alarm bells against America’s lack of decisive action in the region:

Retired Gen. David Petraeus, the former commander of U.S. forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan, said Tuesday that he believed Moscow was trying to shore up the al-Assad regime in order to preserve Russian influence in the Middle East.

"Russia's recent military escalation in Syria is a further reminder that when the U.S. does not take the initiative, others will fill the vacuum, often in ways that are harmful to our interest," Petraeus said before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Abandoning Israel to the Iranian Crocodile

Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran - Appeasement with Terrorists.

While the world rejoices in the historic nuclear arms deal signed in Vienna between America, Iran, Russia, the EU, Israel vs IranBritain and other nations - our minds go back to the appeasement policies of Chamberlain prior to WWII. It was Churchill who defined appeasement as feeding a crocodile hoping it will eat you last.

The nuclear agreement made with Iran dominated World News. The Vienna Agreement was signed on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, at the Palais Coburg hotel, located in (of all places) Herzl Square in Vienna. 

 Peace For Our Time, now go to sleep!

Obama’s agreement is by all accounts “historic”, on the same level that pre-WWII British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s “Peace for our Time” appeasement agreement with Hitler and Nazi Germany was.

If we cast our minds back in history to September 29, 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier, Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini and German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler signed the agreement together. The agreement capitulated to Germany’s demands, sacrificing the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Germany. 

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, French Prime Minister Edouard Daladier with German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler and Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier,  German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler and Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini at the signing of the Munich Agreement in September, 1938. Chamberlain returns victorious to England with his "piece of paper"

The 1938  Munich Agreement was hailed as a great success, with Chamberlain returning to Britain to a hero’s welcome having achieved peace. After stepping off the plane from Germany on September 30, 1938, he proudly addressed the crowds:

“The settlement of the Czechoslovakian problem, which has now been achieved is, in my view, only the prelude to a larger settlement in which all Europe may find peace. This morning I had another talk with the German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine.... We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.”

Later the same day, Chamberlain stood on the steps of number 10 Downing Street and proclaimed:

“My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.”

A grim faced Chamberlain explains Britain is at war with GermanyA grim faced Chamberlain explains Britain is at war with Germany.

While Britain slept, the German war machine was started. Less than one year later Germany had Czekslosvakia and Austria in its grip and had pushed into Poland. Chamberlain’s appeasement policy had failed and he went on the airwaves once again:

"This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German Government a  final Note stating that, unless we heard from them by 11 o'clock that they were  prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us.

I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that  consequently this country is at war with Germany.

That was seventy six years ago. Today it is not the British who have led the charge, although they were involved. It was the United States.

Earthquake - Alarming Facts about Earthquakes Trends

Leading earthquake predictions point to intensifying trends in both future and recent earthquakes.

Is Global Warming having an impact on the frequency of Earthquakes?

And accepted facts about earthquakes link this to the effects of global warming.

This seems crazy at first, until you consider scientific earthquakes information and how earthquakes happen.

We also meet an amazing geologist who, despite ridicule and exclusion by his peers, has been accurately predicting earthquakes with animals for decades.

Facts about Earthquakes and Global Warming

At first glance, there doesn’t seem like there could be any connection between global warming and seismic activity. After all, why would the earth become less stable just because it’s a little warmer?

Well, connected they are. The earth’s crust is a lot more sensitive than you might think. There are well documented cases of even the load of water in a new dam triggering earthquakes in the local area.

A number of geologists say glacial melting, in particular, will unleash pent-up pressures in the Earth's crust. Aside from massive earthquake predictions, they believe we are in for other extreme geological events such as tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

Before we consider how earthquakes happen, let’s look at recent earthquake activity.

Recent Earthquake Activity

Below is a graph showing how the number of high magnitude earthquakes has grown over the past 25 years:

Global earthquakes information and reporting, particularly of minor quakes, has increased around the world due to improving earthquake detection technology.

The graph shows the incidence of all earthquakes has risen over the last 25 years. Why?

You can check out the latest earthquake activity on the IRIS website as shown on the map.

Is There a Link Between Earthquake Predictions and Global Warming?

Though I am no longer convinced that we are still in a global warming phase, there is plenty of evidence that the earth did, in fact, experience significant warming up until 2004/2005. Since then there has in fact been cooling. In any case, the following still applies:

In predicting earthquakes to increase further as global warming progresses, consider this: a cubic meter of ice weighs nearly a ton and some glaciers are kilometers thick.

This prodigious weight acts to suppress tectonic movements in the underlying crust, and plug cracks where volcanic magma might otherwise escape to the surface.

When the weight is removed through melting, the suppressed strains and stresses of the underlying rock are free to come to life.

Harvard seismologist Göran Ekström has found a striking increase in the frequency of glacial quakes, particularly in Greenland, but concerning Antarctic and Alaska earthquakes.

Greenland quakes have risen from 6 to 15 a year between 1993 and 2002, to 30 in 2003, 23 in 2004 and 32 in the first 10 months of 2005, closely matching the rise in Greenland's temperatures over the same period.

Israeli WEALTH Bait For The Russian Invasion

The prophecy claims that Russia will invade the land "to take a spoil, and to take a prey" (Ezekiel 38:12). It describes the confederated Eurasian forces under Gog as being drawn out like a huge whale with hooks in its jaws in the midst of the seas. God is represented as saying: "I will put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth . . ." (v. 4).

There are some well baited hooks in the Middle East, well calculated to draw the Gogian forces to their doom. Part of the bait is the lure of oil which is a key element in modern conditions. At the present time, Russia has ample oil, and supplies much of this commodity to the European Union.  But Russia has a vested interest in controlling the price of oil as it amasses great wealth from it.  So they might well be persuaded to take action against the vast Oil reserves of the Middle East in order to allow them greater control over pricing of this commodity and so this may comprise a most attractive bait to the Russian dictator.

A further "bait" is the strategic position of Israel and Egypt; for the Middle East is the bridgehead to three main continents: Europe, Asia and Africa, and its domination is necessary to a nation bent on world conquest.

A third attractive "bait" is the fact that Jerusalem is a holy city to the three great religions of the world: Catholic Christianity, Judaism and Mohammedism; and the recent moves between Catholicism and the Orthodox Church of Russia on the one hand, and Russia and the Moslems on the other, could make that consideration of prime importance to an invading force that desires to unite the world around a Holy Place.

But what of the Western powers?

The prophecy speaks of nations who will protest against the Russian invasion of the Middle East:

"Sheba, 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 take a great spoil" (Ezekiel 38:13).

The British will play a key role in the time of the endSheba and Dedan are the ancient names for Arab countries that today remain sympathetic to the West, and are opposed to Russia. Tarshish can be identified with Great Britain, whilst "the young lions" are familiar symbols of English speaking nations.

The statement, therefore, relates to the English speaking world, whose officials will make an ineffectual protest against the Russian invasion of the Middle East. And well they might protest, for a Soviet dominated Middle East, with its wealth of oil, will spell doom for the future of Western Democracy.

And here, again, the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel is of greatest significance. For one of the terms, signed by President Carter on behalf of the USA, is that military forces will be established in the Middle East to buttress the terms of the treaty. Accordingly, this peace treaty will bring USA and other English speaking nations, physically back into the Middle East, in such a way as to justify the protest suggested by the prophet Ezekiel as emanating from powers that can be identified with Britain, USA, Australia, Canada and so forth.

Events now taking place in the world answer exactly to the requirements of this amazing prophecy of Ezekiel 38.

And this shows that Christ is at the door.

For two protests are voiced in Ezekiel 38: an ineffectual one, and a powerful one. The ineffectual one is represented as coming from the powers of the West, as cited above; the effectual one, is that uttered by God's representative then returned to earth: the Lord Jesus Christ.

The former one is expressed in the terms of enquiry: "Art thou come to take a spoil? Hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey?" (v. 13). It is the type of ineffectual protest that is normal with the UNO, and which might well be ignored by an aggressor like Russia.

Nevertheless, it would appear from Daniel's prophecy, that the West will make preparations to resist the Russian challenge for world domination, and will aim to fortify Jerusalem, and so cut off Gog's line of communications, because, the prophet declares, "tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him" (Daniel 11:44). These shall cause him to withdraw his main troops from Egypt, and aim at the conquest of Jerusalem. He shall set up his headquarters "between the seas (the Mediterranean and Dead Seas) in the glorious holy mountain" but there his might shall be broken "without hand" (Daniel 8:25; 11:45), that is, by divine instrumentality.

And this introduces us to the second protest. It is a protest made with power. God through Ezekiel declares:

"It shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that My fury shall come up in My face. . ." (Ezekiel 38:18).

God's anger at the power-crazed attack of Gog, will be manifested through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. For Bible prophecy indicates that before the judgment of Armageddon on the nations, Christ will return; the resurrection of those responsible (a comparatively small percentage of humanity. See Psalm 49:19-20; Isaiah 26:14; Ephesians 2:12) will take place, and those judged worthy will receive eternal life, and will be appointed positions of responsibility in the government to be set up by the Lord.

Daniel predicted these events. He wrote:

"And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people, and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many (not all) of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" (Daniel 12:1-2).

The time referred to is "the time of the end" of Daniel 11:40: the time that will witness the attack of the power of the north against Israel and Egypt. Whilst that is taking place, Christ will be supervising the judgment of those resurrected from the dead. The site of the Judgment, most likely, will be in the isolated area of Sinai. This is east of Egypt, and probably will comprise the "tidings out of the east" that shall trouble the king of the north. If so, they will be tidings that he will not understand, and, therefore, tidings that he will ignore, as he makes his drive towards Jerusalem, to meet the threat in the north. His action will bring him, and "all nations to Jerusalem to battle" (Zech. 14:1).

But the prophet, having predicted such a gathering of nations to Jerusalem, and current events illustrating how such a battle is likely in these days when the Middle East is the key to world domination and power, proceeds to state:

"Then shall the Lord go forth to fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle . . . and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee" (Zechariah 14:3,5).

Consider the significance of such a statement. It means that when Russia attacks Israel and Egypt, Christ already will have returned. And as a Russian attack on the Middle East is already a possibility, how close is Christ's coming?

And how important is it that we make our peace with God in the way appointed, for at the Lord's return the door of opportunity to attain eternal life at his coming will close.

It would seem from the outline of prophecy above, that the Camp David Peace Treaty is contributing considerably to the development of things in the Middle East, as predicted by Bible prophecy over 2,500 years ago. For example:

  1. Bible prophecy requires that Israel be "at rest, dwelling in safety (in confidence)" at the time that Russia attacks from the north. The peace treaty is adding to Israel's confidence.
  2. It predicts that Israel would continue to trespass against God because of self confidence induced by peace, so that the nation is indicted by God for its attitude (Ezek. 39:26). Israel's self-confident attitude, and its ignoring of the help of God is indicative of this.
  3. It anticipates the physical presence of Western troops in the area to strengthen the ties of peace between Israel and Egypt. The prophecies of Ezekiel, Daniel and elsewhere require the same thing. "All nations" will be drawn to Jerusalem to battle (Zech. 14-1-2), whilst Ezekiel predicts a protest on the part of nations that can be identified with the English speaking world (Ezek. 38:13).
  4. It necessitates Egypt being in the Western camp, so as to be attacked and invaded by Russia (Daniel 11:40-45). Since the signing of the Peace treaty, Egypt has become tied more completely with the West, and has received the bitter hostility of Russia.
  5. Russia will invade Egypt and so secure a prize of great wealth (Daniel 11:43). Today the possession of oil is of more value than gold, and in recent years, oil has been discovered in the area dominated by Egypt and more recently by Israel.

Therefore, in a remarkable way, thoroughly vindicating the predictions of Bible prophecy, the peace accord signed between Israel and Egypt has contributed towards the development of a situation that answers to the requirements of Bible prophecy.

What this means to you

The time is rapidly approaching when the world will no longer be able to ignore the claims of God and the Bible. A crisis is developing that will force every person to make a decision. How important then, to make it now, and to make it wisely.

That Christ is to return to the earth to bring to consummation the divine purpose therein is beyond doubt. It is a doctrine clearly taught in the Bible, and one tied in with personal salvation. Consider the following appeal:

"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you; whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:19-21).

Your personal salvation is bound up with Christ's second coming, and the fulfilment of Bible prophecy in our day teaches that his coming is near at hand.

Why not seek further information concerning these matters. It costs you nothing to do so, but it is to your advantage to seek it out. Remember! the times are significant, the issues are vital. You owe it to yourself and your family to seek God's way.

Israel’s Enemies Exploit Every Opportunity

The recent horrific death of a Palestinian toddler, in an arson attack on his home, has brought the usual torrent of condemnation on Israel, and its government.  Of course, it’s not surprising that such a killing should be vigorously denounced; but why is it that Israel is the only country where the whole nation, or at least the government, is held accountable for every crime that occurs in its territory?

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign attempts to demonise Israel.The Boycott of Israeli Products attempts to domonise Israel

The death of a small child in such circumstances is truly dreadful, but to put it into context, this is only the third case where a child has been murdered by Jewish terrorists in the last 25 years [1]; and without exception, each case was received by Israel’s people and government with shock, horror and utter revulsion.

In contrast, the number of children murdered by Palestinian terrorists, in the same period, is 177 [1]; and in many cases, the murders brought celebrations in the streets, and the murderers were fated by Palestinian people and leaders alike, with roads, squares and parks named in their honour.

In fact the very village, currently under suspicion of harbouring the arsonists, Itamar, was itself the victim of the ghastly murder of five members of one family.  A column in the Washington Post, from the time, reported, under the heading

Palestinians celebrate and then reluctantly denounce Itamar murders

“It is hard to conceive of a more grisly murder. On shabbat, Palestinian terrorists broke into the home of residents of the West Bank town of Itamar and stabbed to death five members of the family, including a 3-month old baby. The initial reaction of Palestinians was grotesque, if not predictable. Ynet news reported, “Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children. Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy ‘is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.’

The reaction of the Palestinian Authority was equally predictable. On Saturday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas issued a “condemnation” that in essence blamed Israel for the attack…” [2]

And this is the justification given for all such crimes; Jewish settlers shouldn’t be there in the first place, and their theft of Palestinian land, and their suppression of Palestinian political rights, is the spring from which flows the bitter waters of tit-for-tat war.

But this narrative is based on fallacies and distortions. 

After all, why shouldn’t Jews live in Judea & Samaria when they’ve been living there for thousands of years?  Just because the Jordanians illegally invaded the, so called, West Bank in 1948, and both ancient and modern Jewish communities were ethnically cleansed from the area, why does that mean that now, under “international law”, it’s illegal for Jews to live there?

Why are Jews, living in their ancient heartlands (where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived, where the judges and kings ruled, where the tabernacle was pitched and the temple built) an “obstacle to peace”, and yet Arabs living in “Israel proper” not “obstacles to peace”?  Why would a Palestinian state have to be Jew-free, while the Israeli state still has Arab citizens enjoying its privileges?

And if removing the Jewish towns and villages from the West Bank would bring peace why wasn’t there peace between 1948 and 1967, when no Jews were there?  And after the Six Day War, when Moshe Dayan made it absolutely clear that he was willing to negotiate the return of the West Bank to Jordan, in exchange for peace, why did the Arab League convene the Khartoum “Three ‘No’s” Conference, where the Arab nations agreed a resolution of “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel”? [4]

At the beginning of the June 1967 war, Israel pleaded with Jordan not become involved. Israel’s troops were under strict orders to use minimal force in self-defence only, and in the first hours mostly did not respond to light arms fire from Jordan’s army.  However, when Jordanian artillery opened up all along the front, and West Jerusalem came under heavy fire, Israel’s response began, and the “West Bank” was taken almost by accident as part of that defensive war.  Incidentally, international law explicitly allows for countries, under attack, to take and hold the aggressor’s territory (not that it belonged to Jordan in the first place) until the attacked nation’s sovereignty and geographical integrity is recognised and accepted by the antagonist.
