Dates and Numbers from God?

20 10 2016

promised-landChristians are always trying to guess when Jesus is coming. Even Jews are trying to figure when the Messiah comes. Most agree that it is soon. But today I want to share a few historical dates that project profound events for 2017 and 5777, the Jewish year.

500 years ago Martin Luther started the Protestant Reformation in 1517. He was originally convinced that God was favoring and restoring the Jews. (Later, when they did not convert to Christianity, he was so disappointed that he became a serious anti-Semite, (but that is another story).

150 years ago the Jews of Austria and Hungary were emancipated signalling a change that would spread around the world.

100 years ago Great Britain set in motion the legal rebirth of the State of Israel with the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

50 years ago Israel regained sovereignty over the Old City of  Jerusalem during the Six Day War of 1967, for the first time since 70 AD.

What about 2017? So we have 1517, 1867, 1917, and 1967. What do you think about 2017? Is it reasonable to guess that Yehovah may be about to do something big for Israel? We just observed the start of 5777 in the Jewish calendar. Some say this is a year of Jubilee. I can’t confirm that, but each of the 50 year points we have mentioned  have surely made history.

The United Muslim Nations (sometimes called the UN) is threatening to declare a Palestinian state without Israel’s agreement. Will God allow it? I don’t think so. The nations have already divided the land in fulfillment of prophecy. Now is the time for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria (West Bank).

“For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” (signed, Yehovah!) Joel 2:1-2

I leave you with an eight minute video from Lance Wallnau from Israel. He talks with humor about the US election and the Jewish year 5777 with Hebrew meanings behind the numbers. Just follow this link and click on the arrow on the video.

UN Revisionism

14 10 2016


UNESCO backs resolution ignoring Jewish link to Temple Mount You can’t make this stuff up. Now the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has voted to make the Temple Mount in Jerusalem a Muslim holy site exclusively. The decision effectively denies 3,000 years of Jerusalem as the Jewish Capitol. It also claims that the Western Wall is Muslim. What foolishness. The tragedy is that much of the world will believe it. The anti-Semitic anti-Israel propaganda has reached new lows for blatant lies and revisionist history.

Prime Minister Netanyahu understandably reacted strongly. Netanyahu called the decision “absurd,” while President Reuven Rivlin called it an “embarrassment” for UNESCO… “To say that Israel has no link to the Temple Mount is like saying that China has no link to the Great Wall or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,” Netanyahu said, adding that “with this absurd decision UNESCO has lost what little legitimacy it still had.” He also said UNESCO was ignorant regarding the Bible, and accused the body of taking part in a “Theater of the Absurd.” What’s next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?

Deputy Foreign Minister Hotovely: UNESCO decision an ‘affront’ to Jews and Christians

Israel suspends cooperation with UNESCO over Jerusalem vote. Bennett says all work with ‘history-denying’ global body will be halted, as resolution ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites ‘gives boost to terrorism’

Trump slams UNESCO decision. Trump, Netanyahu, lawmakers, slam UNESCO declaration that Israel has no historic ties to Temple Mount.

Those who fight against Yehovah will be shattered. He thunders against them from heaven;
Yehovah judges throughout the earth. He gives power to his king; he increases the strength of his anointed one. 1 Samuel 2:10 NLT

Political Morality: The Mother of All Oxymorons

9 10 2016

(Scott Harris – Flickr: Mouth Washed Out With Soap)

Okay, so the standard is morality. Fine. On one side we have a man with immoral words. On the other side we have a woman whose actions have backed abortion her entire career with now nearly 60 million babies murdered in their mother’s womb, including partial birth abortion which should be called infanticide. (By the way, we have had approximately 120 million births during the same period since 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision. That means we have “legally” killed ONE-THIRD of our future.

Her decisions are responsible for four dead Americans in Bengazi, the embrace of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, the general debacle of Libya, the civil war in Syria, the Russian reset, and the Iran Deal, to name a few of her decisions.

So what’s my point? Do you see any difference between immoral words and immoral policy? If you don’t, stop reading now, I can’t help you. If the Clinton campaign and the media succeed in focusing voters attention on something “shiny” in one hand, they will miss the knife in the other hand.

Political morality is indeed an oxymoron. Let the politician without sin please cast the first stone. Oh, wait! The stones have been flying already for months. Political morality and political hypocrisy are synonyms. The very definition of politics is self-interest. We started with citizen legislators representing their home folks. Now we have political icons. How does one leave the White House broke after being in politics your whole career, and then be a Senator from New York and then the Secretary of State and suddenly be worth over $200,000,000? That’s 200 MILLION DOLLARS! How?

Meanwhile a citizen businessman with a gutter mouth succeeds in business, making billions. Yet, he is “unfit” to be President because of his mouth. I’m sorry, but I am not willing to cast stones.

I have been a Christian pastor my entire life, but even I would shudder to think that some of my past would be broadcast on international news. But, you see, Christians understand the power of the Holy Spirit to change people. I am not what I should be, I am not what I could be, but praise God I am not what I used to be.

Oh, yeah, he is quoted for things he said a decade or two ago. Her actions are consistent to the present: secret server, public positions and private positions, open borders, open trade, globalism and a new world order. No thank you!

I warn all believers to not bite into the apple of self-righteousness. It is a trap laid by a very shrewd and seductive deceiver. We are in a spiritual war that is far larger than Trump or Clinton. Who is pointing America on the right track for the future? (See my posting of the party platforms.)Stop complaining about the poor choices. Your vote is still your most cherished right in this republic. Don’t squander it. The Supreme Court, religious freedoms, and the entire Bill of Rights hang in the balance.

Let me be clear. I am saying that withholding your vote or voting for a third party is not righteous; it is self-righteous. Please be as righteous as you can be through the blood of the Messiah, but don’t use it as an excuse for abdicating your God-given right to cast your vote for the immediate direction of our country.

You may think I am defending Trump, but you would be wrong. Our only hope is the Lord, but I will vote for Trump because the alternative is national suicide, which I will not assist.

Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” John 8:5-7

Happy 5777 New Year!

4 10 2016

shofarJewish New Year 5777 began Sunday night with the sounding of the trumpets around the world. What will the coming year hold for this planet? With the Jewish year started and 2017 only three months away, storm clouds seems to be everywhere. From Hurricane Matthew, to the US break with Russia over Syria, to the economic crisis, to the major US presidential elections, foreboding signs abound.

But it is not all gloom and doom if you believe in Yehovah God and Jesus, His Messiah Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah. My preference to gloom and doom is doom and va-voom! Zionist Christians along with Jews are observing Trumpets, Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles. Prophetically, this is the time for repentance, reflection and hope. This is the very season that the Messiah comes, at the sounding of the trumpets (Yom Teruah).

So, don’t lose faith. Don’t look down, but look up. Our redemption is drawing near. Yes, there are clearly predicted prophetic events yet to unfold, but Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. God said He would tabernacle among us! Run to the Rock of Yehovah to find refuge!

The name of Yehovah is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. Psalm 18:10

Yehovah lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted. Psalm 18:46

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “Yehovah is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 10:5-6

(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!

Policy or Personality?

28 09 2016

“If you want to make America great again, seek the One who made America great the first time.” (Pastor Ken Lawrence),

My brother is pastor of River of Life Church in Sandpoint, Idaho. His statement sums up the heart of Christians everywhere. Our future is bigger than the candidates in the election. Typical politics make it about personality when it is always really about policy. Folks who opposed the leftist policy agenda of President Obama were accused of racism. The same agenda now touted by Hillary draws accusations of sexism. My prayer is that America will wake up to the “wrong track” reality of that agenda.

Democrats will win and democracy will lose, if we are distracted from’ policy. I challenge every believer reading this to consider the stated goals of the party platforms. One is rooted in Biblical values and the other has moved far left. As a Christian Zionist, Israel policy is at the top of my list. On Israel, the Republican Platform is the most pro-Israel in history, while the Democratic Platform is the most anti-Israel in history. But that is only one issue. Consider this clear comparison from LIFE SITE News.      (Click here for enlarged PDF)



YES! Pray, pray, pray, but VOTE! It is your Christian duty in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! Many have fought and died for our voting privilege. Don’t squander it.

The Holy Spirit gave me a verse in February that I first thought was “exposing” Trump. It speaks of pride, arrogance, evil and a perverse mouth. However, I now believe it exposed at a far more insidious evil revealed by the full-throated policy of the Democratic Party. If you are a believer, and you have seriously studied the above chart; can you really vote for their platform? Are you voting for the person or the policy?

The fear of Yehovah is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, all the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:13-17

Don’t Feed the Animals

23 09 2016

don't feedThe food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in its history.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals,” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves. (Thanks to Dave McCurdy for this.)

Does anyone notice a disconnect here?

This bothers me on three levels. First, is the obvious fact that our government is systematically creating total dependence on its services. Between welfare and government employees, 50% of Americans now depend directly on the government for their “daily bread”. The transfer from depending on God to man is breathtakingly arrogant, and is accelerating.

Second, this creates a “demanding spirit”. Derek Prince, Bible teacher and mentor, used a profound phrase: “You can never satisfy a demanding spirit”. A genuine, sincere request can be answered. But once people get something for nothing, they always want more.Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied. Proverbs 27:20 There is a satanic spirit behind the demands. It is also illustrated in the demands of terrorists. All attempts to meet their demands are only answered with more demands. Appeasement is a dead end.

Third, never cast your pearls before swine. Jesus taught, that not valuing your gestures, they would turn and attack you! Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you. Matthew 7:6

There is a place for food stamps for truly needy people, but it should have the goal of independence rather than unending dependence. The same can be said of nearly unlimited unemployment benefits. There are now operational plans where the benefits lead to actual employment. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Netanyahu Speaks at UN Thursday

20 09 2016


Great-Quotes-056Netanyahu: I’ll speak truth to power at United Nations: Prime Minister promises UN will hear Israeli side of the story as he departs for US ahead of meeting with President Obama. 

“I will then address the United Nations General Assembly. I will present Israel’s case, Israel’s truth, Israel’s justice and also Israel’s heroism – the heroism of our soldiers, our police officers and our citizens, who are waging an uncompromising struggle against brutal terrorism.”

Israeli Prime Minister will thank President Obama for the new 10-year agreement for military aid when they meet on the sidelines of the UN on Wednesday. It will likely be the last face-to-face meeting in office. Their relationship has not been good. Israel believes either candidate replacing President Obama will be am improvement, although Clinton is viewed as simply a third Obama term. Trump has declared total support for Israel and says he will not impose solutions on Israel. That in itself would be a great advance in mutual trust for both countries.

88 senators urge Obama to uphold veto on ‘one-sided’ UN resolutions: “Even well-intentioned initiatives at the United Nations risk locking the parties into positions that will make it more difficult to return to the negotiating table and make the compromises necessary for peace,” the senators wrote adding that the US “must continue to insist that neither we nor any other outsider substitute for the parties to the conflict.” … The letter came amid concerns and reports that Obama would consider letting the Security Council vote in a resolution deemed unfavorable to Israel, without using the US veto, at some point before he leaves office in January.

Pressure is building from Palestinians and anti-Israel voices in many countries, Muslim and non-Muslim. Even UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has joined the chorus: Ban Ki-moon says one-state solution ‘would spell doom’

It is critical for Israel that President Obama not abandon Israel for the sake of his personal legacy. Every President thinks they will be the “savior” of the Middle East by finally bringing peace. But the prideful temptation always leads to sacrificing Israel on the peace altar. We must pray and stand against this potential for the remaining months of the Obama Administration.

It is also critical for the US that we not double-cross Israel. We must bless Israel for their sake and for our own sake. The higher truth than any political or personal agenda is the will and purpose of God. He has declared His choice and favor and we cannot reverse it!

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 12:3 NLT
