Israel: Light to the Nations

27 04 2016

Here is my vision. This is why I publish commentary on the internet via my blog and my weekly YouTube prophecy update. Jesus is the Light of the world, and He has made us light individually, but He has always purposed that Israel be a light nationally. A main point of my new book, Blessing Israel, is that God chose them to model His Kingdom to the world, to draw the world into relationship with Yehovah God. He did not choose Israel as a means of excluding all the nations, but as the means of saving everyone who believes in Him.

Below is a video from JewTube.TV that exactly expresses my vision for spreading the Light of God through Israel’s miraculous restoration.

Yehovah had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-2

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Passover: Life or Death?

22 04 2016

A Passover jpegPassover 101 Tonight, millions of Jews and Christians all around the world begin celebrating seven days of Passover, remembering a critical turning point of history. After 400 years of Egyptian slavery, God’s chosen people were freed to establish the nation of Israel in the Land chosen by Yehovah God.

The story of their deliverance and the ten plagues will be detailed in each Passover meal this week, but I want to focus on the macro view. Yehovah revealed how He planned to deal with sin. Ever since the Fall of Adam and Eve, we all were born with a sinful, selfish nature. One way to satisfy God’s justice was destroy all the wicked and start over.

Original sin: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

The wonderful news is that He had a better way to satisfy the justice demand of a death for a death. He first gave an animal sacrifice in blood to cover our sin, one year at a time, renewable on the annual Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. However, this only covered our sin. The permanent solution was to offer His only begotten Son, as the “Lamb” of Yehovah God. This blood sacrifice was so pure, so Holy, it washes us clean, and holy, and righteous: blameless before God! Hallelujah!

We tend to think of the death of the firstborn in Egypt as the main message of the Exodus story, but I submit to you that the main point is the LIFE that was given to the Hebrew slaves. Any Hebrew family that put the lamb’s blood on their doorpost was spared. But if any Egyptian family believed what Moses said from God, they also would be spared. But, Pharaoh hardened his heart and refused God’s offer. The salvation from death was for all who believed. The same is true today. Any single person who believes in Jesus as the Lamb of God will have his or her sins forgiven and granted eternal life in fellowship with Father God and His Son, Yeshua the Messiah!

As I said in my newest book, Blessing Israel, God did not choose Israel as a means of excluding all the nations, but as the means of saving everyone who believes in Him. So, is the main theme of Passover, death? Or, is it life? The choice is yours.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

UN Vote Friday to Condemn Israel

19 04 2016

Golan 4-16

We are now at a critical crossroad in the US/Israel relationship. This week two profound and very negative choices face the Obama administration. One is the Golan issue on the Israel/Syria border. The other is at the United Nations.

  • This Friday the Palestinian Authority is pushing a vote in the UN Security Council against Israel. They last tried in December 2014 and could not get the nine yes votes to pass it. This time they have the votes. The only way to defeat it is with a US veto; and President Obama is threatening and intimidating Israel with the suggestion that he may not veto the resolution.
  • Update 4-22-16 Prayers answered PA to freeze UN resolution on settlements in wake of French pressure

Judgement Day – Will The US Turn It’s Back On Israel At Friday’s UN Vote? Prophecy News Watch: Such actions would be unprecedented in US/Israel relations but some believe Obama has been emboldened by his actions in Iran and Cuba, and that the Palestinian cause could be his final act of legacy to “bring peace” to the Middle East. 

ANALYSIS Since the last showdown in 2014, makeup of Security Council has changed in Palestinians’ favor, so Obama holds the key. As Palestinians head back to the UN, cause for concern in Israel. Upcoming Security Council resolution is projected to easily win the votes it needs — and this time a US veto is far from assured. Times of Israel

  • This week the Obama Administration joined with Russia in a plan to force Israel to give up the Golan Heights to Syria. Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 because Syria used it to fire rockets down on northern Israel. This is an ominous development that exposes the sinister Obama hidden agenda to punish Israel for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s refusal to knuckle under US pressure to force a two-state solution.

Netanyahu: We Will Never Surrender Golan Heights Israel’s Cabinet convened its weekly meeting atop the Golan Heights on Sunday so that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could pointedly inform the world that, in light of the current situation in the region, there is no chance Israel will ever return the strategic plateau to Syrian control. Israel Today

United States ‘doesn’t consider the Golan a part of Israel State Department spokesperson rejects Netanyahu’s comments that the Golan will forever remain under Israeli sovereignty. The United States does not consider the Golan Heights to be a part of Israel, State Department spokesperson John Kirby stressed on Monday. Israel National News

US and Russia Team up to Seek Israel Pullback from Golan DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources and its sources in Moscow report exclusively that Israel’s top political leaders and military commanders were stunned and shocked last weekend when they found out that US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to support the return of the Golan to Syria. The two presidents gave their top diplomats, Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the green light to include such a clause in a proposal being drafted at the Geneva conference on ending the Syrian civil war. DEBKAfile

Pray according to scriptureDeliver me, O Yehovah, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; the poison of asps is under their lips. Selah Keep me, O Yehovah, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from violent men, who have purposed to make my steps stumble. Psalm 140:1-4

16 04 2016

AndreaI have told many of you that my daughter is a better writer than me. Today for your Saturday viewing pleasure is a link to a fun post from my youngest daughter, Andrea. You may appreciate her humor here, but read a couple more of her blogs to sample a variety of topics. Her blog is called: Just is a four letter word. Enjoy!

PROCRASTINATOR’S GUIDE TO FINALLY DOING YOUR TAXES (click to read)

Children are a gift from Yehovah; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates. Psalm 12:3-5 NLT

Good News Update

13 04 2016

Dry Bones Passover cartoonHere is some good news for your mid-week prophecy update.

  1. The arch from the Temple of Baal that was going up in Times Square on April 19 has been cancelled! Praise the Lord! I wrote about it in this earlier blog (Baal worship in NYC). Here is the updated story: Victory!…
  2. After six months of terror attacks against Israeli civilians, it is finally showing significant signs of stopping.
  3. A major problem of links to desalinization and heart disease has been solved: Israel, world leader in desalination, is considering adding magnesium to solve the problem.
  4. The Hebrew language is a miracle; it was dead and now is the living official language of Israel. It is another example of prophecy fulfilled. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Yehovah, to serve him with one consent. Zephaniah 3:9
  5. Israeli Group Aids Refugees Being Deported by EuropeIsraAID’s teams, made up of Jewish and Arab Israelis, continue providing aid through the distribution of equipment, conducting medical procedures and psycho-social support.

God show His love to those who need Him most! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

End of the Book – We Win!

7 04 2016

sunset-boone_980x551“At the end of the day…” is an overused expression designed to close an argument. However, there is a much greater expression for believers: “I have read the end of the Book, and we win!” But, if someone asked you to show them the verses that settle the eternity question, what would you quote? The truth is that there are many verses that speak of our final victory from Genesis to Revelation. I offer this one from the Book of Daniel as a little change of pace encouragement for your day today. I have taken out the parts about the anti-Christ to emphasize the great and glorious news that follows the ultimate defeat of the enemy.

I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated; ​​His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. ​​His throne was a fiery flame, ​​Its wheels a burning fire; ​​A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. ​​A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. ​​The court was seated, and the books were opened. (v-9-10)

​​I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! ​​He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. ​​Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. ​​His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed. (v-13-14

I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. (v-21-22)

​​But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.  ​​Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. ​​His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him. (v-26-27) Daniel 7

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Baal Worship in NYC and London

1 04 2016

baal arch…so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11

Today is a serious subject: the rise of Baal worship around the world.

When ISIS destroyed the pagan temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, it was viewed as the destruction of “world heritage.” I get that, but something unexpected resulted from that event. A major demonic principality seized the opportunity to go global. In a consequence comparable to opening Pandora’s Box, something very evil is emerging. Now don’t misunderstand me, we should not fear, but find the position of faith and prayer war to resist and counter what Satan intends to do.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

The seemingly innocuous story was announced in the New York Times on March 19, 2016:

NEXT month, the Temple of Baal will come to Times Square. Reproductions of the 50-foot arch that formed the temple’s entrance are to be installed in New York and in London, a tribute to the 2,000-year-old structure that the Islamic State destroyed last year in the Syrian town of Palmyra.

The Institute of Digital Archaeology is the organization behind this effort, and the display of these two arches is intended to be the highlight of UNESCO’s World Heritage Week late next month. Charisma News

It has also been characterised as a gesture of defiance against religious extremists’ attempts to erase evidence of the Middle East’s pre-Islamic history. The Guardian

The plot thickens when you learn the date the arch will rise in NYC and London. April 19 just happens to be the beginning of one of the most important occult/pagan holidays of the year:

April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual days relating to fire, the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day.” Prophecy News Watch

baal Occult riseI appeal to you to read the full details at the links provided. This no small matter. As I said at the top, we do not fear. We are responsible to pray and stand against the schemes of the devil. An arch is a gateway; and the devil is trying to claim admittance to our land. We must resist. The earth belongs only to Yehovah and to Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). The plan is to plant hundreds more of these arches in major cities all over the world! Please take this soberly and pray resistance.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore… Ephesians 6:10-14a NKJV

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground… Ephesians 6:10-14a NLT
