ISRAEL, PROPHECY, and a few peripherals part one

In this blog and the next I will write about ISRAEL AND PROPHECY. I taught this at Wednesday night pray service. My last post was kind of an introduction to this one.

In the past many Bible students
HAVE SET TIMES AND DATES
however, the scriptures tell us that we will never figure out the exact date, or even something close. “even something close” is an ambiguous term. I will let you figure out just how much time Jesus meant when he said HOUR, in the following verse.

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Why is this so?
I believe the answer is in the following verse.

Romans 11:25
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus said that even He did not know when the Great Day of the Lord would happen? Well I believe the answer is in the above Bible verse. That verse tells me that a certain number of gentiles will be saved before 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18 [the rapture] happens. When that number is reached then BAM – the end game begins.

Here are two of MANY that HAVE SET TIMES AND DATES:

William Miller,
He taught that the Second Advent of Jesus Christ would occur in roughly the year 1843.

Jehovah witnesses
A] Charles Taze Russell, believed the “time of the end” ran from 1799 to 1914,
B] Charles Taze Russell taught that Christ had returned to earth in 1874,
and that He began his reign in 1878.

{If any readers know of any others, then perhaps you could email me who they are. Please don’t go out of your way as I can google it myself. I am just wondering about your remnant information. My email address is: 1611bibleman@gmail.com}

The Jehovah Witnesses later taught that Christ would return to earth and the thousand-year millennial reign would begin in late 1975.
ORVILLE W… was an electrician at GM Truck and Buss located in Pontiac Michigan. He actually quit GM because he bought into the 1975 millennial reign teaching of Jehovah Witnesses. Orville was an intelligent man, a Marine and an excellent electrician, yet he didn’t have any spiritual sense – none – when it came to being duped by a religious cult he bought the farm, with all the donkeys and bulls and the dung was included at no cost. [1st Corinthians 2:14]
Look up in the sky. Is it a plane, is it a big bird – no, and it isn’t superman either. It’s clouds without refreshing water, bringing terror (Jude 1:12).

TODAY IT SEEMS LIKE
MOST FEEL THAT
SOMETHING BAD IS COMING OUR WAY

A DOOM CLOUD HAS MOVED OVER AMERICA

“SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES”
that’s a title of a book Ray Bradbury published back in 1962.
AND SOMETHING WICKED IS CLOSE AT HAND.

BUT MOST IGNORE IT
Because they are into sports, entertainment, drugs and partying or making money

AFTER 9-11 CHURCHES FILLED UP
NOW
CHURCHES ARE UNFILLING UP

I call that, foxhole religion

FOXHOLE religion
Is when something horrifies you and as a result you make promises to God. God, If you do this, I will do that. That’s the proverbial nail in the coffin. It proves the person knows that he has been living wrong. That he has made a conscience choice to avoid any real commitment to God and that he has been living to please himself. I am first and God does not even get the scraps.

However, now faced with real trouble, perhaps believing that death is near, he admits he has been derelict in submitting to God.
BUT if God will only get him past this danger he will give God the honor of himself. He tells God, “All I have to offer you is me” (Charlie Pride song 1986) but then, just think about how lucky God will be to have me in His corner.
He is trying to con God.

YAA, I am being sarcastic and as caustic as I can be. Go back and reread that last paragraph and perhaps you may agree that I am not even half as disgusted with the arrogant stupidity of foxhole promises as God must be.

IF A CHRISTIAN IS in the fox hole or somewhere close by, he may be able to help “Jonah” get to his Nineveh.
On the other hand, he is more likely to get the penitent saved.

IF a Christian isn’t there to help then
The promises made will LAST
UNTIL THE EMERGENCY IS OVER.
I have been there and done that.

I THINK WE SHOULD
[every Child of God should]
WARN people that disaster is coming
AND
DECLARE THE GOSPEL
ACTS 20:27 AND 31
SOME WILL HEAR ——-
MOST WILL NOT ——–

leave the results to God the Holy Ghost. It is His responsibility to crush the flesh and its ego. All we can do is to be faithful to the Scriptures in warning and declaring God’s Word, telling EVERYONE of the hope that is within us, and the message:
JESUS OR HELL.  WHATEVER THE CONVERSATION ALWAYS MAKE A BEE LINE TO THE CROSS.
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

TODAY
with this doom cloud hovering over AMERICA
PROPHECY IS A MIGHTY TOOL FOR US to use IN WITNESSING

2Peter 3:3
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

In the above Bible verse, 2nd Peter 3:6, is a reference to Genesis 6.

We can use Noah as an effective teaching tool when witnessing.

Christ Jesus said in Luke 17:26
as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

Then in the following verse, we have a description of NOAH’S WORLD.

Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

That sounds like life in America
People just getting through life,
finding a wife,
raising a family,
entertaining friends.

BUT here is an axiom
a truism
The world in Genesis 6 was a SEPTIC TANK of ugly reptilian PERVERTS, who were all doing things that brought them thrills and some kind of pathetic type of happiness – laugh, joke, take a little dope, that kind of happiness. [Hebrews 11:25]
It was a world that put fleshly desires above everything else.
It was also a time when evil angels indwelled men, fornicated, and the babies born through them were born half-human.
[Genesis 6:4 with Job 1:6-7].

All of them, except for Noah,
wanted nothing to do with God. Though if you asked them, most would probably say
that their god was very pleased with them.
KIND OF LIKE AMERICA IS TODAY

NOAH preached to them for 120 years

NOAH PREACHED SOMETHING LIKE THIS

God knows that you are an evil people
He knows that your imagination is filthy
and void of anything decent

I am warning you
JUDGMENT is coming

REPENT OR DIE
REPENT
OR GOD WILL SEND A FLOOD OF WATER THAT WILL KILL YOU
YOUR FAMILY your children, your grandparents, your brothers and sisters,
Your friends.
REPENT
OR GOD WILL KILL EVERYTHING THAT BREATHS.
UNLESS YOU GET ON THE ARK YOU WILL ALL DROWN IN THE FLOOD.
[that ark was a type of the LORD Jesus Christ.]

[Do you think they told Noah,
“Hey Noah you are judging us, Just who do you think you are, who are you to tell us we are not right with God”
That is the attitude of today’s “religious ones” towards anyone who would dare to question their relationship their god. Their attitude is, you don’t tell me I tell you!]

We SHOULD TELL everyone we can
about the RAPTURE and the TRIB, and the END of the Church age
We SHOULD WARN them and declare the gospel of Christ Jesus, the lion of
Revelation 5:5.

We must encourage them to be born again, to confess Christ and
to get on the ark, before its too late.

ME,
I BELIEVE THAT PROPHECY
IS A HIGH PRIORITY TOOL
FOR WITNESSING

SEARCHLIGHTS
DO you REMEMBER those giant World War 2 searchlights?
THEY LIT UP ENEMY PLANES
THEY COULD generate a beam of light as far as 35 miles. 35 miles! That is a very long way for a flashlight to shine.

a welding arc generated that powerful light in those WW2 searchlights

God also has a powerful searchlight.
To shine on prophecy
to expose all errors and lies and to reveal
The truth and the enemy of truth.

THE HOLY GHOST USES ISRAEL TO POWER GOD’S SEARCHLIGHT

Ezekiel 37:1-11
Is about a
valley which was full of bones
Those bones were
Eze 37:11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

after 2,720 years
When the whole house of Israel returned to God’s land, Ezekiel’s skeletons, Israel took on flesh and came alive.

2 more verses about God’s promise to restore Israel to the Jews:
Isaiah 66:8 AND Amos 9:14-15.
Isaiah 66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

Amos 9:14-15
Amos 9:14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
Amo 9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
[Now that Israel is back – No one will ever again will take their land, slaughter them and send them fleeing into other nations. the Jews are back to stay.]

Israel got her independence on
May 14, 1948.
[All Christians ought to celebrate that day, by kneeling and thanking God for giving us prophecy as accurate as tomorrow’s newscast. And for assuring us that His promises to Israel are as sure as His promise of eternal life for all of us who trust in His Son’s death on the cross and His shed blood Acts 20:28 for our propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
Romans 3:25.]

England – before 1948 – had done all they could to make sure that the Jews did not have an army.
Why did England do that?

England KNEW that without a well-trained army Israel wouldn’t stand a chance, that they would be outnumbered and close to defenseless against overwhelming armies and equipment. An enemy who hated Israel with a mighty satanic hatred that would be merciless in their war to murder every Jew and thereby appease their god.

and indeed,
The very day that
THE DECLARATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL document was signed,
The Arabs attacked.
“Israel was attacked on the same day it gained its independence – on May 14th 1948. The armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq attacked Israel. With such a combined force in attacking Israel, that few would have given the new country any chance of survival.”
“The war was fought along the entire, long border of the country: against Lebanon and Syria
and in the north; Iraq and Transjordan – now Jordan – Egypt, assisted by contingents from the Sudan – in the south; and Palestinians and volunteers from Arab countries in the interior of the country.”
“It was the bloodiest of Israel’s wars.
6,373 were killed in action”
[I copied the above quotes from the internet. I apologize that I didn’t get the source information. One source may have been “Wikipedia”.]
ISRAEL HAS FOUGHT WAR AFTER WAR
AND ISRAEL
SHOULD HAVE LOST ALL OF THEM
War for Israeli independence, 1947-1949
Suez crisis, 1956
Six-Day War, June 5-10, 1967
Yom Kippur War, Oct. 6-24, 1973

THE UN IS CONSTANTLY attacking ISRAEL
“As of 2013, Israel had been condemned in 45 resolutions by United Nations Human Rights Council since its creation in 2006—the Council had resolved almost more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the world combined.”
[I copied the above quotes from the internet.]

Num 23:9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.

According to that verse
Israel shouldn’t even be in the UN. For sure, “all” nations will eventually openly despise them.

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2Th 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
2Th 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Th 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

Israel has resisted the political pressure from America to trade God’s land for peace. Every president from George H. W. Bush to Obama has desired a legacy centered on Middle Eastern peace by forcing tiny Israel to trade [sell] land for peace.

Every president wants the legacy of bringing in Middle East peace,
Moreover, they believe the way to best do that is by
selling God’s land to the Arabs for the sale price of peace.

But God warns us about that

Lev 25:23
The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

Israel is the key to prophecy

Part two next time

  1. Great article. How anyone can not see what is going on, gives truth to this Scripture:

    2 Peter 3:4-6

    4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

    5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

    6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
