I Know The Plans I Have For You

This has not changed:

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Over the Old Covenant through the New Covenant this has not changed.  Our Lord's heart for us has not changed.  The New Covenant that we are not under always has been and is now good news.  The only bad news is for those who have rejected the good news.

What has the Lord said to this nobody to share with you today?  This ^^ and this:  it may seem that this world is out of control but it only seems that way.  The Lord our God, Creator, King and Master of Eternity has everything firmly in control.  What is happening in the world is what has been written about for thousands of years.  The only people todays events should be new news to is those who have not read the Bible.

Do not be troubled, our Lord walks among us today as He always has.  The promise is this:

Hebrews 13:5            
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because
God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." ... 

Deuteronomy 31:8            
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave
you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged

Be strong in the strength the Lord gives you today.  Stand your ground, if all you have the strength to do is stand, then stand.  Time is short.  No man knows the day or hour our Lord will return for us (the unknown return not the 'second coming.')  If we stand in the faith, watching and waiting and hoping for that glorious day, we will not be ashamed.

We who hope and long for the appearance of our Lord purify ourselves as we wait for Him:

1 John 3:1See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,a we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Stand your ground in love, faith and hope.  Be encouraged today, your God knows you by name and is intimately aware of every circumstance in your life.  It may not seem like it, it may not feel like it but our God has this world and everything going on in this world working for our good.

Romans 8:28            
And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.

All glory and honor and power and all the might, splendor, riches and praise be unto the Lord our God who loved us and died for us that we might have eternal life with Him.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ who saved us from the wrath to come.

Knowing The Lord and The Escape

The Lord would have me write this to you so here it is.

Not all Christians know the Lord the same way.  The Bible talks about us "knowing God" and Him knowing us:

2 Peter 1:2  Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the
knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord

Ephesians 4:13  ... This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of
God's Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full an

Proverbs 2:5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of
God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not

1 Corinthians 8:3  ... but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him

John 8:55 Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and obey his word.

He reveals Himself in different ways to different people:

Psalm 18:25To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
26to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.

We can illustrate this through the Churches of Revelation, does the Church at Ephesus know the Lord the same way the Church at Smyrna or Pergamum or Sardis or Philadelphia or Laodicea does?  No, different relationships, different views on the same God.

Here now is a question to illustrate this same point:  Does a backslidden Christian have the same relationship with the Lord that an obedient faithful Christian in good standing has with the Lord?  Obviously not:

Hebrews 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

One believer may have a life full of a lot more Divine chastising than another.  One believer may know the rod of correction more than another but that is just one example of many.  How we are, who we are, what we believe is how the Lord deals with us.  Again:

Psalm 18:25To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
26to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.

So what?  Whats the point?

We view and interpret the Scripture according to our knowledge of God.  When our Lord says something two different sons who know Him differently interpret the same statement in two entirely different ways, thus the gaping divisions in Christianity today.  Specifically this is being written regarding:

Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

Some people have little or no faith, some have alot.  Some people have experience with miracles from the Lord some do not.  Some people's testimony is one of repeated deliverance and answered prayer, others say "God does not answer my prayers" and this is all from Christians!!

This is not a beat down, this is explanatory.  How we know/view our God shapes how we know/view His Word.  He IS The Word.....

The Lord told me to write this so I am writing it.  This is a critical issue as we see here:

Matt 7:21Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Gal 4:9 But now that you know God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you are turning back to those weak and worthless principles? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?

We must, I repeat MUST be a people that knows their God and are known by God.  There are many many promises in the Word that will determine everything for those on the face of the earth today.  There are promises of great deliverance and great judgement.  What we believe matters.  We are saved by grace through faith.  Without faith, without belief do we still get the grace?  Thats not what my Bible says.  By grace THROUGH FAITH.  Do a Bible search for how many times "through faith" is used to get an education on the issue.

This brings us back to:

Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

Will those who do not believe there will be an escape from all, participate in the escape from all?  We are about to find out.

All of the Israelites left Egypt but most them died in the wilderness.  Only a few entered the promised land.  Why?  Unbelief:

Heb3:12See to it, brothers, that none of you has a wicked heart of unbelief that turns away from the living God. 13But exhort one another daily, as long as it is called today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
14We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly to the end the assurance we had at first. 15As it has been said:
“Today, if you hear His voice,
do not harden your hearts,
as you did in the rebellion.”d
16Who were the ones who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? 17And with whom was He angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did He swear that they would never enter His rest? Was it not to those who disobeyed? 19So we see that it was because of their unbelief that they were unable to enter.

Yea, what we believe matters.  The Lord does not take unbelief lightly, what does He say about it?  Unbelief is wicked.  

This brings us further along on our journey.  There are about to be some doors opened in heaven.  What are doors used for?  For people, specifically believers to enter.

Rev 3:8I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door, which no one can shut. For you have only a little strength, yet you have kept My word and have not denied My name. 9Look at those who belong to the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews but are liars instead. I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and they will know that I love you.

Rev 4:1 After this I looked and saw a door standing open in heaven.

Matt 25:1At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take along any extra oil. 4But the wise ones took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6At midnight the cry went out: ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
7Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
9‘No,’ said the wise ones, ‘or there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10But while they were on their way to buy it, the bridegroom arrived. Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet, and the door was shut.
11Later, the other virgins arrived and said ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us!’
12But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’
13Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.a

Unbelief comes at a price.  We must know our God which is another way of saying we must know the Word.  They are one and the same but they are not quite the same.  Satan knows the Bible/The Word but he does not "know the Lord."  You get the idea...  It would be a devastating loss to find out one day that the door in heaven was shut and a person did not make it in because they did not believe the promises.  They do not believe the promises because they do not know their God.

The Last Blood Moon, Trouble For Israel

We have covered in previous posts how the middle east has been destabilized and is now filling up with armies (most notably/recently Russia).  Also the dear leader of the United States Obama cut a deal with Iran to allow them (in effect) to develop a nuclear weapon.  What we have not covered is this:  the Islamic invasion of Europe already has Europe burning, it is already taxing their distressed economy but what else is coming?  Mass persecution of European Jews...

Is it a coincidence that the last blood moon stood as a witness over the Muslim/Islamic invasion of Europe?  The guaranteed result of an Islamic invasion of an already anti-Semitic Europe is to make Europe openly hostile to Jews across the continent.  History is repeating itself but also increasing itself by orders of magnitude.  What do I mean?  Hitler was an anti-Christ figure but he was not the anti-Christ.  What is happening in Europe and the rest of the world today is setting the stage for the anti-Christ.

It has been said here numerous times, this time it is different and numerous examples have been given to illustrate why, heres another example.  Back in the 1940's Christians saw what was happening in Europe with Hitler and thought it was the end of days.  There were many aspects of what was happening that would lend to that thinking but there was one absolutely critical ingredient missing.  What was that critical ingredient?  The nation of Israel...How are you going to have an abomination events in a rebuilt temple when there is no Jewish state and no control over Jerusalem?  That problem has been rectified.

The presence of that little Jewish sliver of land  in the middle east changes everything.  Israel is present in the middle east today.  Jerusalem is under Israeli control today.  Mark of the beast technology is ready to go within 3.5 years from today, this world's people have rejected Christ and are ready spiritually mentally and socially for the man of sin to arrive.  They are ready and they will embrace him as the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Yes, this time it is different.

The end times on this earth center on Israel.  The nations of the west have been the strongholds of Christianity, but what is happening to them?  The home of the protestant reformation (and revival) was Germany.  Germany is now ground zero for Islamic invasion.  Why?  From revival to apostasy has been Germany's (and the entire western worlds) trajectory.  The west if being invaded by Islam.   No need to blame the politicians for this one, this is the hand of the Lord our God:

1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

There is a massive tectonic shift in power underway in this world and most people are oblivious.  In the not too distant future the time of Jacob's trouble will begin with all of its accompanying judgements from the book of Revelation and the news media along with all of the blind and deceived will be ready to explain it all away with such nonsense as "CERN did it" or flaming mountains fall into the sea and wipe out a third of the fish and a third of the ships all the time, nothing to see here!"

Rev 8:8The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

The last blood moon and all the other events of this September are complete now and look where this world stands.  Look at what is going on.  Trouble for Israel is here and growing by the hour.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Final Blood Moon 9/28/2015

It has finally arrived, the last blood moon in the tetrad.  This is it, a final warning to this world of what is coming.  We are all aware that everything and the kitchen sink has formed a nexus in the month of September and this last blood moon is the bookend on all of it.  The first blood moon was on Passover (first feast), the last blood moon is on Sukkot (the last feast).  These feasts are book ends on the entirety of prophesy.  What is the Lord trying to tell us with these blood moons on feast days?  It points directly to 1.  Him and 2. to Israel.  It points (in short) to unfinished business that will now be finished.  What kind of unfinished business?  This kind:

Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

The blood moons point directly to this ^^.  This last blood moon on Sukkot places a bookend on finishing, the end:

to finish...................... the transgression
to make an end............ of sins
to make reconciliation......... for iniquity
to bring in....................... everlasting righteousness
to seal up.......................... the vision and prophecy
and finally:  to anoint the most Holy

What is this showing us?  It is time to settle accounts.  It is time to finish, to make an end, to reconcile and seal up.  This is it.  We have had years worth of forewarning and the stage is now set.  What makes this time different?  Blood moons are signs in the heavens that cannot be faked or debunked or otherwise altered by man.  Add to that the Lord's Shemitah and Jubilee cycles right on top of the final blood moon and you have a trifecta that tell us it is time.

Europe is burning, the middle east is full of armies (growing in number every day), the world economy has been punched in the face and is still reeling from the initial 9 Trillion dollar blow is just received.  People the world over are sick and tired of their robber baron corrupt thieving politicians, they are looking for a 'savior' (but they do not want Jesus Christ).  The Islamic hordes have been forced down this worlds throat receiving favored and even untouchable status in the west and the response by the people of the west has been so silent you could hear a pin drop.

What does all this ^^ add up to?  Biblical judgement, right here, right now.  This is not something that is coming, it is something that is here right now.  This last blood moon takes place in the midst of everything you have read above.  It is the final blood moon of the tetrad, the bookend on the end.  It is a finishing touch on warnings that have spanned the course of years.

This end time centers on Israel but the Church is still here, so what of the Church?  Has the Lord issued us new commands?  No.  What has the Lord told us to do?  The commands from last year and the decade and century before are the same commands to us now.  What are these commands?  Too many to list them all here but in short we are to find absolute center in Christ.  Keep a broken and repentant heart that responds to the slightest whisper from our Lord.  Pray, rejoice, give thanks, praise Him.

John 16:12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

In Christ, the Spirit will lead you into all truth (which includes all of the commands He has given us).  Simple enough.  Keep the faith and do what we are told to do, thats really it: faith and obedience.

Everything our Lord said would happen is happening or in the process of beginning to happen.  It is both frightening and exciting at the same time.  It is our Lord who is at work in this world and He is very busy.  It should encourage all believers that our Lords hand has become so obvious in this world.  There can be no denying it (yet the world will try).

We have arrived at a time where fooling around and half efforts must be a thing of the past.  This is deadly serious, life or death (physically and spiritually) hangs in the balance.  The seriousness of world events reflects the seriousness of our Lord, play time is over.

Give thanks to the Lord and praise Him in fear.  He truly is an awesome and terrible God.

Nehemiah 1:5 
... And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that
keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments ...

... Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the terrible God, who keepest
covenant and mercy, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, that hath ...

... You shall not be frightened by them: for the LORD your
God is among you, a mighty God and terrible. ...

... Because the Lord your God he is the God of gods, and the Lord of lords, a great
God and mighty and terrible, a who accepteth no person nor taketh bribes. ...

Psalm 66:5 
... Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in
his doing toward the children of men. ...

... He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these
great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. ...

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Welcome To The Jubilee

Whether it was the 23rd or 24th that Yom Kippur actually occurred (due to the sandstorm delaying the sighting of the new moon on Rosh Hashanah) we can be sure we are now in the year of Jubilee.
What does that mean?  The Jubilee year is a year of redemption and liberty...redemption and liberty for some, hell on earth for others.

Lev 25:8And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. 11A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. 12For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

Why should we as Christians care about the Jubilee year for Israel?  The entire book of Revelation is centered around Israel and we are watching the unfolding of the prophesies of that book all around us.  How so?

Consider the position this world finds itself in today.  It was just revealed in the past couple days that Deutsche Bank could declare bankruptcy any day now.  That would be the equivalent of a financial weapon of mass destruction going off in Europe.  Between the euro problems, Deutsche Bank problems, immigrant problems, Germany the stalwart fortress/support of Europe is not doing so well these days.

What else do we see?  4 Blood moon tetrad completes its display in the heavens and despite the best attempts of the deniers that the blood moons weren't "red enough" to qualify as blood moons, what is Israel's situation at the end of the tetrad?  Temple mount tensions are escalating by the day.  Russia has just formed a new beachhead in Syria where it is pouring in tanks, troops and aircraft.  The rest of the middle east has been completely destabilized thanks to the "expert" strategies of our dear leader here in the United States.  What is the net result?  Today the middle east is a completely destabilized area of the world full of armies with more weapons, troops and planes arriving every day.

Interest rates are right now at 5,000 year lows.  Yes, you read that correctly, 5,000 year lows.  That by any definition you might want to throw at it is the bubble of all bubbles ready to pop.  The bond market will explode soon, and remember the bond market is much larger than the stock market so when it tanks, it is going to hurt.  Who will it hurt first?  Governments.  The governments of this world are under pressure unlike anything they imagined for themselves.  The people the world over have had it with corrupt, bought off career robber baron politicians.  Thus we have the popularity of trump.  Added to the distaste for today's politicians the economies of the governments these politicians run are collapsing.  Add to this demographic problems, then add to this natural disaster problems, then add to this societal tension (divided along every line imaginable, me first mentality) and what you have is a powder keg.

So what?  So, about now people are looking for a savior.......

2 Thess 2:7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Is this world ready for the man of sin with his accompanying power, signs and lying wonders?  You bet they are.  They rejected the truth (The Lord Jesus Christ/The Word) so they will get a lie and they will love it to their undoing.

Massive changes are coming.  We have discussed some of the changes on the horizon but consider this one as well.  This world is having a love affair with Islam.  The Muslim can do no wrong anywhere it seems.  They are a preffered people untouchable by the governments of the west where they are quickly establishing bases of power to work out their own agenda (this too is the hand of our Lord working out judgement).  So?  Where does the massive change come in?  In a world gone crazy for Islam, Israel will get her temple back.  Everyone who has said there will be no rebuilt temple has been proven to be false.  My word is worth nothing, what does the Word say?

Mark 13:14“When you see the abomination that causes desolationa standing where itb does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out. 16Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 17How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 18Pray that this will not take place in winter, 19because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now—and never to be equaled again.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.

Notice the Words "when you see."  Obviously the Lord is telling people to look for something they can see.  It also mentions Judea, not the rest of the world, not the United States, not Canada, not Germany JUDEA where people are supposed to take a very specific action: flee to the mountains.  The daily sacrifice is to be taken away, that means the daily sacrifice must be started again IN JUDEA.

The people who have tried to spiritualize this to make it say whatever they wanted it to say have been proven wrong again and again and again.

There will be a rebuilt temple, PERIOD.  That is what the Word of God says at face value without twisting it, turning it, or spiritualizing it, that is what it says.  How will this happen in a world in love with Islam?  Massive changes have to take place first.  Absolutely MASSIVE changes.  What is the biggest catalyst for change we know of?  War.  In 6 days in 1967, Israel transformed the situation in the middle east.  Not 6 years, 6 DAYS.

The year of Jubilee in 1967 gave Jerusalem back to Israel.  This Jubilee year, what will Israel win back?  Watch and see.

Massive changes are upon us and the impression I get from the Spirit is we should not fear.  We should trust, we should hope, we should pray, rejoice, give thanks, praise and worship but we should not fear.  The Lord our God is at work, can you see it?  All glory and honor and power be to our God, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  May He be forever praise.  AMEN.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

What does this have to do with Germany and The West?

Germany was ground zero of the protestant reformation:  ground zero for revival

What has Germany become since then?  Ground zero of apostasy, a secular ground zero for Europe.  So what?  So what has now attended this secular Germany?  Ground zero for invasion: the sword.  The invasion is underway, the sword will follow.  This is a signature judgment on once Godly, turned secular godless nations.  Over and over and over again the pattern repeats.  Why?  It is a signature judgment on backslidden nations so they will know who it came from....

We have some prophesy yet to be fulfilled, what is part of this prophesy?

Jer 51:13O you that dwell on many waters, abundant in treasures, your end is come, and the measure of your covetousness.
14The LORD of hosts has sworn by himself, saying, Surely I will fill you with men, as with caterpillars; and they shall lift up a shout against you.

This ^^ is a prophesy against Babylon which once again, as always includes signature judgment:

Surely I will fill you with men, as with caterpillars; and they shall lift up a shout against you.

The West is being invaded and not a finger is being lifted to stop it.  Ground zero of the revival and apostasy was Germany, now ground zero of the invasion is Germany.  And what of the United States?  Is that big ocean between Europe and America going to save her?  No, she will be filled as well:  State Dept. Official Wants 'Steep' Increase in Syrian Refugees Admitted to U.S.

Trump wont save anyone.  Obama has a full year and spare change left to fill this country with enemy combatants.  Yes, many of these migrants are military age males who hate the West with a passion.

In case the point has not been made clear enough, here it is plain as day:

Ezekiel 14:21            
... This is what the Lord GOD says, "I'm sending four of my most destructive
judgments—military invasion, famine, wild animals, and pestilence—into Jerusalem ...

The invasion is well underway in Europe and about to begin in America.  The population can cry out to their politicians for 'salvation' all they want.  But aren't the politicians the ones orchestrating this invasion?  Good luck looking to the politicians for help.  Are the politicians really the source of this invasion?  No, the Lord God is:

Revelation 1
Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spiritsa before his throne, 5and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

Who rules these leaders?  According to my Bible Jesus Christ our Lord and Master does.  What is the instruction for these leaders today?  Let in the invading armies.  Don't take my word for it, look at the news and read your Bibles.

Digging a hole in the sand and burying ones head in it was a solution people used in the past to deny or otherwise ignore the judgments coming on a nation.  Good luck ignoring this.  The Lord, according to His promise is stirring up a merciless army:

18Their bows will strike down the young men;
they will have no mercy on infants,
nor will they look with compassion on children.
19Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms,
the pride and glory of the Babylonians,b
will be overthrown by God
like Sodom and Gomorrah.
20She will never be inhabited
or lived in through all generations;
there no nomads will pitch their tents,
there no shepherds will rest their flocks.

or here

22This is what the Lord says:
“Look, an army is coming
from the land of the north;
a great nation is being stirred up
from the ends of the earth.
23They are armed with bow and spear;
they are cruel and show no mercy.
They sound like the roaring sea
as they ride on their horses;
they come like men in battle formation
to attack you, Daughter Zion.”

The armies come from different places, but the judgment is the same.  Signature judgments, the same over and over again so men know it came from God.  The signature judgments are used over and over in the Old Testament then they are repeated again in Revelation:

Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

There is a price for rejecting the Living God.  He is a God of grace, peace, mercy and love but what happens when He is rejected? 

Daniel 9:4And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

Ezekiel 25:17            
I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath.

Nahum 1:2           
The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with

The fear of the Lord is in our Bibles over and over again for a reason.  When time is up, as it appears it is, vengeance is what is coming.

The solution has been and always will be Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  These nations that have rejected the Lord and are now thumbing their nose at Him are in for a rude awakening.  The time for playing games is over.  The time for hiding ones head in the sand until it all just passes by is over.  There is an invasion in progress and there will not be a hole deep enough to bury ones head in this time.

It has been written here before, this time it is different.  The tin foil hat, easily dismissed issues of the past are just that, the past.  What is here right now is something altogether different.  It is time for what has been written to be fulfilled.  We have one option and one option only, dwell in Christ and keep our eyes on His face moment to moment, day to day.  What He says to do, we must do when and where and how He says to do it.  The other option?  There is no other option.

The Word is clear for us who believe.  The only fear we should have is for Him who saved us

Deuteronomy 13:4            
... Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone

Joshua 24:14            
... "So fear the LORD and serve him wholeheartedly.

and the examples go on and on.  You get the point.  The blood moons that we have seen in the heavens were and are real blood moons.  The Shemitah and Jubilee years are real.  Our Lord's hand at work in this world is unmistakable.  He will get this world's attention one way or another.  He will get our attention as well.  We can give it to Him willingly or He can force us to give it to Him.  I prefer the easy way:  give it willingly.

Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

This is being written to you in fear and trembling.  This nobody who writes to you does fear our God with great fear and trembling.  This world and especially the believers in this world need to lay hold of what the fear of the Lord means.  Time is up.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

Jubilee Year and The Temple Mount

There have been rising tensions on the temple mount.  See links here and here.  Jubilee years are about restoration.  What was restored last Jubilee year?  Jerusalem.  What will be restored this Jubilee year?  The temple mount?

Daniel 12:11  "From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination
that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.

Daniel 11:31  "His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will
abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the .

You cannot abolish a daily sacrifice when there is no daily sacrifice...
You cannot desecrate a temple that does not currently exist....

What does the Word say will happen?

His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will
abolish the daily sacrifice.

There WILL be a temple fortress and there WILL be a daily sacrifice.

This next year Sept 2015-Sept 2016 is going to be very interesting.  There is no need to predict what is going to happen, the Lord already told us exactly what will happen.  Question is, when?  What happens in Jubilee years?  Restoration.  Lets see what happens.  Glory to God.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Stage is Set Part 2

Russia is firmly establishing a military beachhead in Syria.  They have now vowed to cleanse ISIS from the middle east.  Good thing?  Despite the false picture the news paints, the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia have been supporting ISIS.  People can rant all they want, the facts speak for themselves.  What is ISIS armed with?  All US made weapons.  The Iraqi government has published video footage of US helicopters airdropping equipment to ISIS.  So what?

ISIS has been the proxy tool to oust Assad in Syria.  The Russians are not dumb, they figured two can play that game so now they are in the middle east ready to fight ISIS.  So?  So we have some prophesies yet to be fulfilled, like Damascus destroyed and Jerusalem surrounded by armies just before its desolation:

Isaiah 17:1 A prophecy against Damascus: "See, Damascus will no longer
be a city but will become a heap of ruins.

Luke 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies,
you will know that its desolation is near.

The stage is being set for both of these prophesies to be fulfilled right before our eyes.  Remember that if the tribulation started today it would be 3.5 years from now before Jerusalem is surrounded by armies and the desolation takes place so these things will play out in time.

What else will play out in time?  The economic setup.  We are a week or two away from the beginning of the bond market collapse.  Note the word beginning.  According to legendary trader Martin Armstrong the bond market collapse will feed our stock market which in turn which should peak around 2017 or so.  Give the stock market a year or so to collapse from its peak that puts us at 2018, then throw in the loose time change leftover for transition to the new world economy with mark of the beast technology in 2019.

This is the rough appearance of the setup that lies before us.  Does it appear reasonable that the economy could collapse and mark of the beast technology be implemented within 3.5 years from now?  Sounds very reasonable.  How about the middle east, could Israel be surrounded with armies 3.5 years from now?  It not only seems possible but probable.

So what?  Why go through this mental exercise?  To point out that we could be looking at the beginning of the tribulation, also known as the time of Jacob's trouble any day now.  The end time centers on ISRAEL.  Are we seeing Israel come back into world focus?  You bet we are.  The blood moons pointed to who?  According to Rabbis, they point to ISRAEL.  When does the blood moon tetrad wrap up?  This month.  Telling?  I would say so.

Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies, not Rome, not Paris, not Washington D.C., not Frankfurt, JERUSALEM....

Luke 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies,
you will know that its desolation is near.

The fall of America combines with Americas recent hostility toward Israel plays right into all this.  If America is on its knees economically, militarily, etc that will leave Israel alone to fend for herself, a tempting target for a middle east full of armies....

People mock and scoff at the Shemitah since the world "only" lost 9 trillion dollars worth of market capitalization this past 3 months, what they fail to see is the dagger protruding from the heart of the world economy.  What happened with this past years Shemitah was like pushing over the FIRST domino in a chain of dominoes.  They do not see the impending bond market collapse which will lead to a stock market collapse (it will take 2-3 years) leading to the new world economic system that will implement the mark of the beast.

 It has hard and distasteful for most people to look past today.  Everything is in place, all of it.  Thus the signs in the heavens and all over the earth.  Has the Lord warned us?  This blog alone has been warning for years, yes we have been warned.  Have there been false alarms in the past?  You bet there have.  What makes this time different?  To start with the return of Israel to her land and the time count from that.  Israel is the center of the world and its prophetic time piece.  Then we have the signs in the heavens and here on earth.  Then the jar full of cherries all over the top of this is the absolute certainty of economic collapse in the near (3 or so years total) future.  This tally is leaving out any and all massive natural disasters that may hasten the slide of the world economy into the abyss.

The Shemitah and Jubilee are and were an economic cycle the Lord used to regulate worldly and spiritual affairs and that cycle has undoubtedly been re-instituted and is active today in the economic affairs of this world.  The Shemitah is a 7 year cycle.  The time of Jacob's trouble is a 7 year cycle, a "week" of years.  It just so happens we just finished a 7 year cycle and another one will soon begin.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
