Dear Friends and Readers: This is NOT for the Timid. This Biblical information will surely upset many people who are not familiar with God's Word -- the Bible. I encourage all the get into a "Good Habit" this year --2013.... read and study the Bible every day. And I want to be in that number too!
God Bless all true Believers, Brothers and Sisters who love Jesus and the Good Book, who had the humility to bend knee to the one and only LORD, Jesus Christ, seeking Salvation through His blood alone.
We had a good church Prayer Meeting tonight, and Terri had today off from work -- so she came along too, and enjoyed it -- we always learn a lot from God's servant, our humble Pastor Kevin Sullivan, who does a great job.... U.P. here.
The future of our existence on earth and the USA is slipping away fast, and imperfect humans THINK that they can some how save America by their own puny, impish hands, and unlawful, illegal, "Executive Orders" that circumvent the Congress and Senate, and also trash our U.S. Constitution -- while God already has His grand Plan in place, recorded for a long time -- see below for yourselves, please. How ought we prepare for terrible times ahead?? "Draw close to God, and He will draw close to you." ~Book of James [the half brother of Jesus]. How can a nation ever gain God's Blessing when so many abortions are sanctioned by our 'leaders' -- plus the Gay Agenda too?? These acts are terrible and wicked in God's eyes! Beware: the ONE WORLD GOV'T is still right on schedule as the wicked human powers that be, [and dark, demonic spirit world] would have it.
If this material is hard for you to grasp the first time, DON'T QUIT! Just read it again, but more slowly, but pray for the Holy Spirit to help you understand it.
If you want to know how to get the Holy Spirit in side you ALWAYS, to help and sustain you in every way, just call or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or, the good Pastor of the church we attend U.P. here, Kevin Sullivan, would be glad to help you too. "Ask and ye shall receive."
And did you also know what VP Biden said today?? That obama is considering an "Executive Order" to ban all guns [or some drastic similar illegal gun grab] in the very near future -- in AMERICA!! There would be so many nasty ramifications is he tries this stunt -- and I will bet that the Congress is too cowardly to resist such an unlawful event! Shame... Sorry. If this really happens -- we will be slaves, not freemen. I am so glad that most well trained Christians believe that the Rapture is coming soon.
3. A Moslem Coalition Armed And Led By Russia Will Attack The Holy Land… Ezek. 38:2-6“Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army–your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops–the many nations with you.”
Numerous historical references make it plain that Magog stands for modern Russia, and the other countries named here form a coalition based on their common religion, Islam. Among them are Iran, several North African countries, Eastern European countries along the Danube, and the Turkic nations of Asia Minor. A quick look at a world map will reveal that these areas are home to some of the most radical Islamic groups. (For a detailed explanation of the modern nations to which these Biblical names refer, read “An In Depth Look At The Modern Equivalent To Biblical Names in Ezek.38″)
Directly or indirectly, the Russians are already a supplier of arms for the nations who will form this coalition, just as Ezekiel prophesied, and will be drawn into joining in this battle by God Himself. Russia’s barely disguised policy of becoming the major outside force in the Middle East is playing right into the Lord’s hands. Russia has moved part of its Black Sea fleet, including its only aircraft carrier, into the Eastern Mediterranean off the coast of Syria and has recently deployed shore to ship and anti-aircraft missile batteries in Syria as well. Russia and Iran are well into the implementation of a $50 billion deal to provide Iran with nuclear power. The 10 reactors called for in the deal are supposedly for electrical power generation, but most western leaders are convinced they’ll be used to create material for bombs, too. So far, only the one in Busheir is on line.
Various experts had claimed that Iran would become a nuclear power in 2012, but despite the continuing damage caused by the mysterious Stuxnet computer virus and several unexplained explosions, some still think a bomb is possible in early to mid 2013. Israel and the US have both vowed to prevent that ever happening and after a period of vacillation the language coming out of Washington at year end seems to be getting tougher again.
It’s important to remember that if either the US or Israel or both attack Iran it would not be a fulfillment of Ezekiel 38. The prophecy calls for a sneak attack on Israel, not the other way around. Currently that’s the major obstacle to an early fulfillment of this prophecy. It has to occur at a time when Israel is “a peaceful and unsuspecting people” (Ezekiel 38:11) and this certainly is not the case today.
But Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 are yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies that taken together appear to involve all of Israel’s next door neighbors in another attempt to wipe the Jewish nation off the map. A victory by Israel would explain why none of them are named in Ezekiel’s list of antagonists, although you’d expect them to be at or near the top of the list. It would also explain how Israel could soon be living in a perceived state of safety as Ezekiel 38:11 requires.
Syria could possibly be in the early stages of fulfilling Isaiah 17 and surrounding nations are preparing for the worst. Recent UN estimates indicate 60,000 or more Syrians have already died since March 2011 when the uprising began. Hamas and Hezbollah continue to make frantic preparations for war, insisting there will be one very soon. Not surprisingly, these preparations are being directed and funded by Iran. Through out 2012 experts on both sides publicly announced their conclusions that a regional war is imminent, but at year’s end it hasn’t happened yet. I think there’s a better than even chance that if the situation in Syria deteriorates into a fulfillment of Isaiah 17, it will trigger Psalm 83 as well.
One pre-requisite for Ezekiel’s battle is clearly being met. Till now Israel really hasn’t had any wealth to speak of, but recent oil and gas discoveries, said to be worth billions of dollars, could provide the wealth necessary to make Israel an attractive target for attack. This could fulfill the precondition of Ezekiel 38:13 that Russia will be looking for plunder. There could be enough natural gas to supply Israel’s needs for more than 100 years while turning the country from a net importer to a net exporter. Russia is already looking for ways to get involved in bringing this gas to market, and according to Ezekiel they’ll go to war in what will turn out to be a failed attempt to do so.
I believe the removal of the US as Israel’s powerful ally is also necessary to pave the way for Ezekiel’s battle, because I don’t think the Moslem coalition will attack until they’re sure the US won’t retaliate. Any one of several scenarios currently being played out could accomplish this, especially since our national policy toward Israel is not what it once was. A double dip recession could turn the nation inward again and cause us to lose interest in defending Israel. Further decline of the dollar on world markets could even render us financially unable to do so. The threat or actual occurrence of a major terrorist attack could cause us to stand down. And finally, the Rapture of the Church could deprive the US of the ability to respond. Any one of these would mean serious trouble for the US and all of them have a better than average probability of coming to pass in the year ahead. In summary, it’s a becoming a whole lot easier to see the US abandoning its commitment to Israel.
When the time is right, having recently taken His church to Heaven, the Lord will use this battle to orchestrate His reconciliation with Israel, and on its heels the anti Christ will emerge with a peace plan that includes a Jewish Temple. So once this battle takes place, end times prophecy will really go on fast forward.
