Trump’s Travels and Childless EU Leaders

18 05 2017

Dry Bones Trump's Trip

While we wait for the historic events of this weekend in Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and Rome, here is a shocking revelation regarding leaders of Europe, followed by my view of President Trump’s Trip.

Europe’s Childless Leaders Sleepwalking Us to Disaster What do the leaders of Germany, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Luxembourg and the First Minister of Scotland have in common? None of them have children. Why is this remarkable? If one or two were childless, you might overlook it as inconsequential. But six leaders begins to look like a pattern and worse, an influence on long-range European policy. Is there a connection to Germany’s Angela Merkel inviting a million and a half Muslim “refugees” into Germany and her absence of a personal posterity? Consider these quotes from an article from Gatestone Institute International Policy Council.

Angela Merkel made the fatal decision to open the doors of Germany to one million and half migrants to stop the demographic winter of her country. It is not a coincidence that Merkel, who has no children, has been called Mama Merkel “the compassionate mother” of migrants. Merkel evidently did not care if the massive influx of these migrants would change German society, probably forever.

“There have never been so many childless politicians leading Europe as today. They are modern, open minded and multicultural and they know that “everything finishes with them”. In the short term, being childless is a relief since it means no spending for families, no sacrifices and that no one complains about the future consequences. As in a research report financed by the European Union: “No kids, no problem!.”

  • As Europe’s leaders have no children, they seem have no reason to worry about the future of their continent.
  • “Europe today has little desire to reproduce itself, fight for itself or even take its own side in an argument”. — Douglas Murray, The Times.
  • “‘Finding ourselves’ becomes more important than building a world.” — Joshua Mitchell.

That is why Turkish leader Erdogan urged Muslims to have “five children” and Islamic imams are urging the faithful to “breed children“: to conquer Europe. Islamic supremacists are busily building a clash of civilizations in Europe’s midst, and they depict their Western host countries collapsing: without population, without values, and abandoning their own culture.

Now for some perspective on this information and how President Trump’s first overseas trip relates. As the above cartoon illustrates, he will visit the headquarters of the world’s “three great religions.” The caption reads: “It’s more than presidential, it’s Messianic.” We will soon know the direction he will take. We are facing a clash of cultures on a Biblical scale. Whatever happens the next seven days, it will be prophetic fulfillment. Yehovah God Himself is orchestrating these events. He is firmly in control and His Plan will be seen in the end.

If Trump moves the US Embassy to Jerusalem it will certainly accelerate events with an explosive backlash from the Muslim world. If he does not, it will probably accelerate the rise of Islam by falling into the trap of “peaceful true Islam” versus the “radical terrorists who pervert Islam.” The problem with that hopeful division is that the radicals are actually truer to the faith and example of Mohammed. They are the fundamental faithful who ultimately expose the moderates as apostates from historic fundamental Islam.

Make no mistake. It will all come down to Jerusalem. That is why Monday and Tuesday are so important to see what President Trump says while in Jerusalem. Don’t be swayed by news reports that are all over the options. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

“At the time of those events,” says Yehovah, “when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather the armies of the world into the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will judge them for harming my people, my special possession, for scattering my people among the nations, and for dividing up my land.” Joel 3:1-2 NLT

 

This message concerning the fate of Israel came from Yehovah: “This message is from Yehovah, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. Zechariah 12:1-3

History Made in Next 7 Days.

US Amb to Israel

New US ambassador David Friedman arrives in Israel, prays for Trump

It would be hard to overstate the importance of the next seven days. President Trump’s first overseas trip will see him Saturday and Sunday in Saudi Arabia with leaders of 50 Muslim nations pressuring him for their agenda. He then visits Israel on Monday and Tuesday where he will pray at the Western Wall, visit Yad VaShem, the Holocaust Memorial, and meet with PM Netanyahu. He will also be with PA President Abbas in Bethlehem. From there he goes to Rome to meet the Pope and on to EU HQ in Belgium for a NATO meeting. He ends the trip in Sicily for economic talks with the G7.

Billed as a visit to the seats of the “world’s three great religions,” we have serious prayer concerns. We hope he will announce finally moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital. However, there are ominous signs that he may instead resurrect the failed two-state peace plan. Pray that he will hear from Yehovah God in Heaven and show the courage to stand with Israel against all odds, regardless of threats.

White House reports suggest he may state that the terrorists are “perverting Islam’s peaceful religion.” There is great opportunity for him to be deceived here. We must pray for the Holy Spirit of truth to speak directly to him.

Today as I write this, President Trump has a White House meeting with Turkey President Erdogan, who I am sure will give our President an earful of anti-Israel propaganda. Yet, the everlasting eternal God of Israel will triumph!

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from Yehovah,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Yehovah is your keeper;
Yehovah is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
Yehovah shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
Yehovah shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121

We pray for mercy to “He Who keeps Israel!”

Back from Idaho, On to Israel

10 05 2017

20170505_141906

Thank you Sandpoint Christian Center, Sandpoint River of Life Church and Cocolalla Cowboy Church for such wonderful meetings last week. My granddaughter Aly and I were so blessed to minister and enjoy the great Pacific Northwest. I always leave part of my heart there on many levels. Ken and Mavis Lawrence are gracious hosts and even more so with Aly along as my assistant.

Now Doreen and I prepare for our extraordinary 50th Anniversary trip to Jerusalem, a beyond generous gift from our daughters’ families and friends. We are so excited to be there to join in the 50 year anniversary celebrations of the reunification of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel. It was a prophetically historic event at the end of the 1967 Six Day War.

Yeshua had prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem which occurred in 70 AD.

 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:20-24

This section is often put into the end times, but notice that after the destruction they will “be led away captive into all nations”. This refers to the nearly 1900 years between the  70 AD fall of Jerusalem, to its reunification of 1967.

But He also prophesied its restoration in verse 24:

And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

There was to be an end to the Gentile rule of Jerusalem. In addition, He connected the restoration of Jerusalem to the Messiah’s coming.

Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Luke 21:29-33

To which generation does He refer in verse 32, that will not pass away till He comes? I submit that it is our generation, the one which sees Jerusalem come back under the sovereignty of Israel instead of Gentile nations.

Hallelujah! Come soon Yeshua ha Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah!

Hamas Thanks North Korea

6 05 2017

Dry Bones Hamas - N Korea

‘Israel will receive a merciless, thousand-fold punishment’ North Korea threatens Israel with ‘thousand-fold punishment’ after Defense Minister Liberman calls Kim Jong-un a ‘madman.’

Hamas thanks North Korea for threatening Israel Hamas welcomes North Korea’s threat against Israel and its support for the Palestinian people.

Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch. The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by Yehovah’s own mouth. Yehovah will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for Yehovah delights in you and will claim you as his bride. Isaiah 62:1-4 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Jerusalem Plot Thickens

2 05 2017

shofarAs Israel celebrated their Independence Day yesterday, Palestinians mourned the occasion as “the catastrophe.” Even worse, UNESCO voted to deny Israel’s claims to Jerusalem on the same day (not a coincidence). Plus, the PA President, Mahmoud Abbas, is meeting with President Trump in Washington tomorrow, further thickening the plot.

On Independence Day, UNESCO okays resolution denying Israeli claims to Jerusalem

Make no mistake, the goal of Islam remains the complete destruction of all Israel. The “moderates” are willing to proceed incrementally, while the rest demand the entire land of Israel immediately. Each step is critical to the eventual outcome.

We must pray courage for President Trump and PM Netanyahu to resist the enormous pressure from the Palestinians and the nations arrayed against Israel. The ultimate victory of Israel is in Yehovah God’s hands.

Trump’s trajectory seems to be to recognize all of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which is to simply acknowledge the truth first established over 3,000 years ago by King David. The Jews have always maintained it is their capital. Meanwhile, no other nation has ever existed that named Jerusalem as its capital city.

President Trump’s first ever visit to Israel will be around May 22 when he may make his declarations. Pray that he will do it. It is time! The next day is Jerusalem Day (50 year anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem from Jordan during the Six Day War). This is a profoundly significant month in Biblical history being fulfilled right before our eyes.

Pray that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Pray that we will move our Embassy, leading many other nations to follow. Pray for Presidential courage to resist Abbas and the anti-Israel principality. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

But now I have chosen Jerusalem as the place for my name to be honored, and I have chosen David to be king over my people Israel. 2 Chronicles 6:6 NLT

On a personal note, thanks for your prayers for my Idaho ministry trip. It has been wonderful having my granddaughter Aly helping me on her Bat Mitzvah trip. We had a great meeting Sunday at Sandpoint Christian Center, next Friday and Saturday nights at River of Life and next Sunday at Cocalalla Cowboy Church. Please pray for us.

Embassy Move?

26 04 2017

Holocaust day 2017

PLANS ARE UNDERWAY for President Trump’s first visit to Israel later this month. Timed to be near the Jerusalem reunification celebrations, odds are strong that he may bring a great gift to Israel. He could use the occasion to announce moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It has been 50 years since re-gaining Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israel is the only nation where our embassy is not in the capital city. It is way past time to act on the law passed by Congress in 1995. A loophole in the law allowed the President to sign a six-month waiver for “national security” reasons. Each President since then has signed a waiver twice a year. The last one was by President Obama on December 1, 2016. The next deadline in June 1.

During his election campaign Trump vowed that if victorious he would relocate the US Embassy to Jerusalem, a highly symbolic move valued by Israel as confirmation of the city as its capital, but strongly opposed by Palestinians and the Arab world which want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Times of Israel

Yesterday President Trump spoke warmly about the Jewish people and the State of Israel at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s annual Days of Remembrance event. Trump said at the event that he “will always stand with our great friend and partner, the State of Israel “

“And we’ll never be silent — we just won’t — we will never, ever be silent in the face of evil again.,” the American president stressed, saying that the scale of the loss was incomprehensible. “The Nazis massacred six million Jews. Two out of every three Jews in Europe were murdered in the genocide. Millions more innocent people were imprisoned and executed by the Nazis without mercy, without even a sign of mercy.” Arutz Sheva

If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget its skill!
If I do not remember you,
Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—
If I do not exalt Jerusalem
Above my chief joy. Psalm 137:5-6

See Something, PRAY Something

21 04 2017

PrayGreat advice from my Bible College days 50 years ago: “Don’t be a preacher who has to say something, be a preacher who has something to say.” That concept is missing today, not just with preachers, but everyone. People are spouting off their opinions all around, but not really saying anything. They just like to hear themselves talk. The reason they are not really saying anything is because they are disconnected from God’s voice. My goodness, there are many Christians who say God doesn’t even speak anymore, like He has gone mute.

That is why we have been hosting Issachar Forum: A Prophetic Think Tank for more than ten years. It is based on the reality of hearing God speak by the Holy Spirit, the Bible, creation and yes, even current events. In fact, He especially speaks about current events. Here is our basis:

…of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do… 1 Chronicles 12:32

We are not looking for man’s opinion, we seek Yehovah God’s world view, and especially His specific purpose in current events. As sons and daughters of Issachar, we may not wield much human influence, but we are mighty through prayer. Prayer changes nations.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 2 Corinthians 10:4

So PRAY!

Here is an example. Why is Islam on the move? What about all the “refugees”? Where is God in all of it? Well, here is a Biblical view. Just as the Nazis nearly conquered Europe, Islam seeks global supremacy with a similar core purpose: the annihilation of the Jews and now the State of Israel. Just as in Egypt, Satan meant it for evil, but God turns it to good. I maintain that God reversed the aim of the Nazis and used their atrocities as a springboard to establish Israel (which by the way, He has said for millennia that He would do). So too, today, Yehovah will reverse Satan’s (and Islam’s goal) of destruction, to instead restore His beloved Israel. Here is the Biblical concept which sheds light on how God works.

“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that it shall no more be said, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.
“Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says Yehovah, “and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. Jeremiah 16:14-16

Though severe, it is our loving and faithful Father bringing His people home.

So, when you see something in the news, find out God’s purpose in it, and then PRAY into His will. If you want your prayers to be answered, try praying in agreement with what God has already said He intends to accomplish.

So PRAY something!
