Sharia Court Sentences Gay Men to 100 lashes: Western Media=Silent

Story here.

The double standard here is breathtaking.  What double standard?  Had this been a Christian court, every news outlet in the western hemisphere would be decrying this 'injustice' from the rooftops, no doubt with protests in the streets across the western world.  But when it is an Islamic court?  Its so quiet you can here a pin drop.

This incredible double standard is proof positive that the spirit of Babylon is alive and well in todays world.  That spirit has no qualms whatsoever with its own hypocrisy, its constant deception and wickedness that has no bounds.  Why is that?  Because the spirit of Babylon is the spirit of anti-Christ:

Isaiah 14
And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

The king of Babylon is that wicked one that our Lord will overthrow with the breath of His mouth:

2 Thess 2
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

The summary statement that sums up almost everything we are seeing, the corruption everywhere and the people who cannot get enough of it is: the rise of Babylon.  The whole world (minus the few who are in Christ Jesus) is following this spirit.  Only those who are rooted firmly in Christ will be able to resist this anti-Christ tidal wave that is sweeping over the world.

This calls for patient endurance.  The Lord has plans for this world....  He has different plans for us. 

1 Thes 5:9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Glory to God.

More Proof That Europe Is Finished

see article here:

DEATH OF A COUNTRY: Germany will become Islamic State, says Merkel

They are admitting they have every intention of continuing the trend of demolishing everything that was Europe in favor of  a new Babylon.  What are we seeing across the middle east and Europe?  The birth and development of new Babylon.  We do not have to guess at this one, it is Biblical fact.  What is the doomed end time entity that the Bible calls out by name?  Babylon

Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

add to this ^^ to entire chapters in Jeremiah (50-51) and an entire chapter in Isaiah (13) and you start to get the idea about Babylon.  The Lord tells us a lot about this end time entity so we should not be surprised to see it grow before our eyes.

Everything is happening exactly as the Lord God said it would happen.  Only an all powerful, all knowing God can do this.  He saw the apostasy of Europe before it happened.  How else could Europe be invaded with Islam unless Christianity was kicked out first?  Light does not flee from darkness, darkness flees from light.  If you remove the light (Christ Jesus), darkness moves in immediately.  This is what we are seeing across the western world.  Are there small lights that still exist across Europe?  Of course, our Lord has believers everywhere:

Rev 5:9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

The believers who remain in Europe must do what the Spirit of the Lord instructs them to do.  They will each be given very specific instructions, personal to them as individuals and families.  The Lord always takes care of His own.  We too must also be listening to what the Spirit of the Lord says to us as individuals.  The rest of the world is not so far behind Europe in their spiritual apostasy.  We are all living 'behind enemy lines' in a spiritual sense, so we require very specific and timely instruction from the Lord to survive.

On a lighter note, as dark as it seems down here, the Lord is not troubled in the slightest by the overwhelming odds stacked against us.  He seems to like it this way.  Remember how things happened back at the Red Sea with Israel.  Not exactly a promising scenario for Israel there, until of course the God of eternity split the Red Sea wide open and allowed Israel to cross unmolested.  So it is today, once again believers have their backs up against another 'Red Sea.'  The modern day forces of Pharaoh have aligned against us and our backs are against the wall.  What now?  The Lord has plans for us today and for today's Pharaoh, just as He did when Israel was hemmed in against the sea.

We have been given many promises, promises of escape.  Just as Israel escaped the chariots of Pharaoh, so will those who are in Christ (and believe in the promises) escape.  The anger, the rage, the veins popping out of the neck and red faces we see anytime the rapture or escape of any kind is mentioned today is proof positive that even the enemy believes in the promises our Father gave us.  The enemy knows for a fact that our God does not lie.  When the Almighty says something is going to happen, it will happen.  Period.

I see a lot of escaping going on in the end times.  Forget the rapture arguments, you can cause much more damage to the escape deniers by taking the promises one by one on their own merit.  This multiplies the problems the deniers have in explaining it all away.  Maybe Luke 21:36 is the rapture, maybe its not.  The escape deniers like to argue that its not which is fine, now they have two problems instead of one.  If Luke 21:36 is not the rapture then we have 2 places where believers escape instead of 1.

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Yes, and this is a promise to escape ALL of whats about to happen.  This writer finds a promise like that very attractive, especially in light of who made the promise (Almighty God.)

I see more end time escape here:

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

I see two more end time escapes here:

Rev 12:5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

1.  her child was caught up unto God-that's one
2.  the woman fled into the wilderness where the Lord prepared a place for her-that's two

Yep, there's a lot of escaping going on here!  Yes, its a very 'escapist' mentality that I proudly adopt as my own.  If the Lord God told us to be watching and praying always for this escape, then yes we should have an escapist mentality.  In the meantime, while we are praying for escape we are doing our Lord's will here on earth. 

So yes, things are looking bad for this world at the moment.  The governments in the west are flooding their own countries with Islam (and by default-terror).  Little do they know they are pawns in the hand of Almighty God.  They are creating the end time Babylon exactly as our Lord described it to us in the pages of His Word.  So, do not be troubled.  The same God who saw this coming thousands of years ago has prepared a way for us just as He did for Israel when they were backed up against the Red Sea.  Glory to God.

Be listening for His voice, repent and pray.  Be a man or woman who walks with God

Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

And the Lord will take care of the rest....

‘Abbas has decided to sign peace deal with Israel’

article in jpost here.

Well, the timing seems to line up for something special to happen this year.  70 years (a Biblical generation) from the Balfour declaration and 50 (a jubilee) years from the recapture of Jerusalem in the six days war makes this year 2017 a prophetic nexus.  When we see things beginning to shape up according to what the Lord told us would happen during a nexus in time like this year we should be on alert.

France Votes For National Suicide

Marine Le Pen accepts defeat

What does the election of Macron mean for France and the EU?  It means a continuation of the status quo for Europe.  What does more of the status quo look like?

1.  More Islamic invasion of Europe
2.  More Islamic terrorism in Europe
3.  Increased persecution of Jews and Christians in Europe
4.  Increased dictatorial power pushed down from Brussels onto the people of Europe
5.  More (if it were possible) European hostility toward Israel

Most of the time we can only see after the fact what the Lord has decided for this world.  It appears there is no wait and draw this timeline out for Europe, their destruction is to continue full speed ahead with no pause to breathe.  A similar election is coming up in Germany with a similar result predicted.

Why does this matter, why write about it here?  Because the middle east is the center of end time prophesy.  The time of Jacob's trouble is centered around Jacob, which means Israel, which means the middle east.  The interesting thing about the end time transformation we are witnessing is the transformation of Europe into a part of the middle east.  Why is that significant?  Because there is an end time killing field being setup according to the Word of the Lord here:

Rev 6:7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Notice what it does not say, it does not say a fourth part of mankind.  It says a fourth part of the earth so this is a geographical framework.  It is some 25% area of the earth that will be given over to Death and Hell.  We know Israel is the center of it and it expands out to encompass 25% of the earth.  Here is where we are forced to look beyond the middle east as a killing field.  How much land mass does the Middle east make up?  6.2%.  That means we need another 18-19% of the earth's land mass to make up the difference.  Hello Europe, are you listening?  Europe only makes up 6.8% which means Asia has to get a piece of the action as well. 

Europe is in the process of being marked for destruction.  The Euro is in a multi-year decline, European culture is being eradicated in deference to Islamic people and culture, European banks are on the brink of collapse (Deutsche Bank comes to mind).  In short, Europe is in serious trouble and todays election in France might have iced the cake.  Europe sealed its own fate the moment it decided to kick Christianity out.  How ironic that Christianity was too much of a burden but they are willing to embrace militant Islam with open arms.

What about those who are in Christ that live in Europe?  The Lord knows how to take care of His own.  His servants in Europe need to be listening to His voice.

The train of prophesy is moving forward at breakneck speed.  I wondered what the Lord would do in Europe, now we know.  Instead of a delay or reversal of the destruction of Europe it has now been greenlighted, full speed ahead.

Every Day The World Gets A Little Worse But....

At first glance one might think the wicked are winning this battle of good against evil.  Unfortunately for the wicked, they do not win this fight:

Ps 2:1Why do the nations ragea
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
3“Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”
4He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
5Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
6“As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.”
7I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
8Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.
9You shall breakb them with a rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

All the plotting, all the scheming, all the secret societies, the winks, the nods at evil, they are all destined to be broken with a rod of iron.  Does it sound like the Lord is troubled at this plotting of the wicked, these temporary victories?  Doesn't sound like it to me:

4He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.

He (our God=The Almighty) is laughing at them

So what?  So it seems like this world gets a little more wicked each day.  Each day there is a new headline of Islam making inroads in the west, of Christianity being sidelined, of people giving up and giving in to the wicked around us.  It is important for those of us who are in Christ to remember the end from the beginning.  We win this war.  We will stand in victory with our feet on our enemy's neck:

Rev 3:9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 

Ps 23: 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Heb 10:11And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool

Ps 37:34 Hope in the LORD and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.

Our day is coming, we just have to wait for it.  This is why we were told to be patient and endure, we win this war.

Make America Great Again? Not Going To Happen

The so called prophets who said the Lord told them Donald Trump was sent to restore America to her former glory have once again been proven false.



America's former glory had a foundation in Christ.  The people were in right standing with the Creator, and the Creator blessed America and her people.  Contrast that with today.  Contrast that with the video you see above.  Not only are many Americans turning their back on the Almighty, they are at the same time turning to false gods. 

This ^^ my friends, does not have a happy ending.  These people ^^ have an appetite for destruction and their hunger will be filled.  This ^^ is why this world has an appointment with war, famine, death and terror (see Revelation 6).  These people are sealing their own fate.  America has forgotten where its blessing comes from.  It has forgotten who made it great in the past.  This is why history repeats itself, people never learn....

Trump or Hillary, it never really mattered.  The problem always was and is the people, not the politicians.  The people get the politicians they deserve:

Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

If the politicians are crooked, then look no farther than the people of the country they represent. 

Jer 3:11And the Lord said to me, “Faithless Israel has shown herself more righteous than treacherous Judah. 12Go, and proclaim these words toward the north, and say,
“‘Return, faithless Israel,
declares the Lord.
I will not look on you in anger,
for I am merciful,
declares the Lord;
I will not be angry forever.
13Only acknowledge your guilt,
that you rebelled against the Lord your God
and scattered your favors among foreigners under every green tree,
and that you have not obeyed my voice,
declares the Lord.
14Return, O faithless children,
declares the Lord;
for I am your master;
I will take you, one from a city and two from a family,
and I will bring you to Zion.
15“‘And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Only if the people of America acknowledged their guilt, that they rebelled against the Lord God, only then would we be given shepherds after the Lord's own heart.  As things stand today, that is not going to happen thus we get the egomaniac, liar, thief, murderer politicians instead.

America is in serious trouble (as is the entire world).

What are the few righteous left in the land to do about this?  We can do our job:  be salt, be light.

Matt 5:13You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
14You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

As long as a few righteous remain in the land, the Lord will not completely destroy it. 

Gen 18:25 Far be it from you to do such a thing--to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

It is just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot.  We should expect the Son of Man to arrive in days such as this:

Luke 17:26Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, 29but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— 30so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

Be salt and light.  Be watching and ready for the Son of Man to arrive unexpected just as He said He would.

Time Is On Our Side

Although time is short (the Lord could come back for His Church at any moment), time is on our side.  How so?  Every moment that slips by into the history books while we are in Christ, puts us one moment closer to our Fathers Kingdom and paradise.  For those who are not in Christ, every moment that slips by is one less moment for them to take whatever it is they think they can find from this earth.  For them its a race against time, for us its casual stroll with time.

For this reason, we are told over and over again to be patient, to stand, to wait.

Luke 21:19In your patience possess ye your souls.

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 

Why write this?  1.  The Lord God has impressed this idea on this writers heart multiple times over recent days and 2.  Maybe the Lord impressed it because this writer (with some alarm) has noticed how fast time is flying by.  It was just new year 2017 and it will be May 2017 one week from this posting.  I am getting older, my kids are getting older, time is flying by.  Instead of being alarmed the Lord says to rest and be at peace.  For us who believe time is our friend.  For those who do not believe it is their mortal enemy.

Heb 4:3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, "So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.'" And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world.

Isa 30:15 This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.

Every moment that goes by is one moment closer to us being face to face with the Almighty.  One way or another we will all stand face to face with Him, bend our knees and confess that He is Lord to the glory of God our Father.  For this reason we must always be watching and ready.  He told us He will come back unexpectedly but we could also not be alive tomorrow-nobody guaranteed us we will see tomorrow.

This post is written as an encouragement to you as it encouraged me.  The things of this world are quickly slipping away.  For those of us who are straining toward eternal life that is good news.  The rapid passing of time brings us closer to our Father's kingdom on earth just as it is in heaven.  It signals a rapidly approaching end to the corruption, and fraud, and greed and lies-all the wickedness done under the sun today that turns some of our stomachs. 

When we begin to see things the way our Lord sees things we will be encouraged.  He laughs at the wicked as He knows their day is coming.

Psalm 2:1Why do the nations conspirea
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3“Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”


This ^^ is what the Almighty has to say about the wicked we see all around us.  He has something altogether different to say about us:


Psalm 16:You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

This ^^ is what we have to look forward to.  Every single tick of the clock brings us closer to it.  Glory to God.

All glory and honor and power, all the wealth and splendor and worship and praise be unto the Lord our God who loves us and has saved us from the wrath to come.
