Growth

This blog was inspired by the Great Commission of Christ written in Matthew 28:19. It’s always been on my heart to reach out to people and share this great faith which has brought me freedom and peace in the midst of all of the circumstances of our life. This blog isn’t exclusively for Christians it is my hope that it will reach every person from every nation. I named this blog Growth because I am a young believer and I am still learning a lot but it is my hope that others can be inspired and we can all grow together as believers in Christ.

Don’t Miss the Signs (Growth is on Facebook)

see the signs

And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. Mark 16:20

Now there is no way I can cause these signs, this is the work of the Lord but its important to see that the birth pangs and other prophecies are coming together right now. If you believe in the word of God but need some confirmation consider watching for signs of prophecy. You’ll be amazed at how it is all coming together right now. Even if you don’t need to see signs to believe that your God is working its good to keep watch, it just might save your life. Especially if you live in the United States, The Middle East or any country with a prophecy written against it.

We are seeing signs from these prophecies right now.

Does Church Follow the Ten Commandments?

chuch

Which Church or Synagogue does Growth go to? The answer is none! They don’t follow the bible like you think they do and that is why I left the church earlier this year. I thought I was getting a good Gospel and receiving the truth but really I was receiving a fabricated Gospel and only the messages that made people comfortable. This is no good, we have been duked into believing that what is preached at Church is what the Gospel is all about but truly the people that have received the real Gospel are a minority. Part of the problem is people will not read the bible and for those that do they are convinced that certain parts of the bible no longer apply to them. Rest assured that this is what the messiah has declared.

For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any wise pass from the law till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18

Likewise the entire word of God applies to you and all of it is valid from the beginning until the end. Let’s start by looking at the ten commandments and you will start to see that the Church is not the real deal if you want to receive the truth about God’s word.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3

The Church has already failed at this but I’m not expecting you to understand why at this time. By deceiving the people about salvation, prophecy and most importantly the law they have created another god and another messiah that comes before Yehovah the God of Israel and Yeshua the Christ of God. This will become very clear as we move forward.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Exodus 20:4 

This is always left out of the summary of the ten commandments you see in your bible but it relates to the first commandment. Thou shalt have no other gods before Yehovah. Now think about this commandment, a graven image in any shape or form is forbidden. Statues, figurines, dolls and sculptures are examples of graven images. If that is true what is the difference between these and the sculpture of a cross?

42

Absolutely nothing. It’s an image of a symbol that has been created with either metal or wood it fits the criteria according to the word. Why must we keep this symbol? Just because Christ might have been crucified on a cross does not mean we can carve out the symbol and hang it up. If Christ had been crucified with a sword would we have carved out swords and hang them up in the church? This clearly goes against God’s commandments but the Church appears to know the bible so well and this has never been corrected. Furthermore, this symbol represents Tammuz the Babylonian god of the sun. We should not worship God in any way that is similar to the way someone would worship a false god. This includes symbolism.

 

d0ba817958fc5521441de2460c41c3f8--the-cross-christ (1)

Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Deuteronomy 12:30

 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Exodus 20:7

The church will never take the name of the god they have created in vain but if they really think they are speaking about Yehovah with the deception they have created I would say they are taking his name in vain every time.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work. But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Exodus 20:8-11

The sabbath is from Friday evening at sundown to Saturday evening at sundown. At that time all believers should rest from their work. With the exception of Seven Day Adventists. The church largely ignores the traditional sabbath. Instead they would rather honor Sunday, with rest and worship. Nothing is wrong with worship on Sunday but it cannot be the same as the traditional sabbath of the Lord. Friday evening to Saturday evening is still the hallowed day and it should be honoured. Strange enough Sunday is the day of worship for the sun gods like Tammuz. Why should we give the sun god day credit? The sun god isn’t before Yehovah is he??

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal. Exodus 20:12-15

With a few exceptions the Church is generally okay with these commandments. They understand that respecting parents is important and some of their strong points are preaching against adultery, killing and stealing.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Exodus 20:16

In other words we shall not lie to one another. The Church has already broken this commandment. By failing to preach the full word of God and by twisting bible prophecy and the word to fit their narrative they are giving a false witness of the word. They convince people they are eternally secure when they are really falling away from the true ways of God. Deceiving and being deceived, concealing their plans from the public and because of that God’s true spirit is concealed from them.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. Exodus 20:17

The church may not be dealing with anyone’s house, wife, servant, or animal but there is one thing they do covet and its possessions and money. Acts 2 shows us that a congregation was never meant to be a rich organization. If they had some resources it was completely given away to the members in the community. Why do we have rich churches today? Why do they keep anything for themselves instead of giving all of it to the community. Ananias was killed for giving partially because this showed he was being covetous.

 And all that believed were together, and had all things common. And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. Acts 2:44-45

There you have it, I will say no more. Let the word be your guide and take this to the Lord. Decide if you should continue to go along with the church when they won’t even keep all ten commandments. Why are they okay with the gaps they have in observing the word of God?

The Daughter of Babylon: Watch the Utmost Border

Canada Extreme Cold

Extreme Cold across Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Northwest Territories and Nunavut in Canada. The weather is cold enough for alerts in Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Northwest Territories.

In 1998 and 2006 people walked from Alaska to Russia and vice versa now how many times did that happen previous to that, I don’t now. What about 1832 or 1791? I don’t know but apparently I don’t think its such a rare event and now with all these unseasonable temperatures up in the northern United States & Canada I’d say any day now you’re going to see the Bering Straits freeze. What does that mean? That means Russia who has a friend called China, a good friend called China, an ally with mutual defense treaties called China, is very close to Russia physically and they can just role into Russia with the people cheering them on and join the Russian army, perhaps with the North Korean army and roll on in through the Bering Straits on solid terraforma ice. Moshe Biderman  

In The Daughter of Babylon 4: A Sound of Battle is in the Land we saw this bible verse highlighting how the United States daughter of Babylon is going to be attacked on the day of its destruction.

Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left. Jeremiah 50:26

This bible verse shows that the Lord knows about the outer territories of the United States and it appears those places will be attacked first on the day of its destruction. This article will focus on the most northern state which is Alaska. This is a key place because once the army enters Alaska they have entered North America and they will have land access to the CONUS. (Contiguous United States)

When the attack happens technology will be down and the army will be using old transportation methods such as riding a horse or taking a sail boat.

One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end. Jeremiah 51:31  Now why would this need to happen if someone could simply call Trump. This is proof that the technology is gone.

Most of the time to get from Russia to Alaska one must take a boat but now consecutive days of extremely cold temperatures is threatening to make the trip even easier. Ice is already forming in the Bering Straits and it is likely that this will progress so that there is a bridge of thick ice from Russia to Alaska. The army will be able to walk into North America and since this attack is the will of God we better believe that its going to be that easy. No wonder it has been so cold lately in North America.

Boxing Day sea ice

The sea ice is already forming and by mid to late winter we can expect that Russia and Alaska will be connected. With the threat of a large war starting by late winter this is a recipe for disaster in North America when the enemies of the US realize they can walk across the Bering Sea. So we must watch the Bering Strait for as long as we can. When the ice is thick from Alaska to Russia this will be a real possibility.

 

Gaza Shall Be Forsaken

Gaza

Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord‘s anger.

For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Zephaniah 2:3-4

“Occupied Palestine” is a word that is used so often by the people that wish to see the end of Israel. It is true that Israel had to come into the land when others were living there and they drove the indigenous people out. The bible tells us this is what was done during the days of the exodus. Although it sounds bad, the Lord gave them the land and it was his will to have them living there as people that would serve him. The Canaanites did not serve the Lord, they served idols and that is why Israel was allowed to throw them out.

Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you. Leviticus 18:24-28

This is the main idea of what is happening in the holy land. Serve Yehovah the God of Israel or get out of there. The controversy over Zion is happening because other groups of people that do not serve Yehovah have claimed the holy land as their home and Jerusalem as their holy city.

Palestine

Palestine was the name given to the region of the middle east consisting of Judea, Samaria, Galilee & Philistia. It was first given the name Palaestina by the Romans around the year 135 A.D. This was after the fall of Jerusalem in 67A.D and so this is not a biblical name. It came about during the time of the Gentiles.

 Syria Palaestina or Roman Palestine, a Roman province (135–390 CE), a province of the Roman Empire following merger of renamed Iudaea with Roman Syria. Palestine: Wikipedia

So why was Palestine mentioned in the King James Bible?

The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. Exodus 15:14-16

A quick look at the Interlinear Hebrew bible shows that Palestina is a translation error. The word in Hebrew is the word for Philistia the land of the Philistines, Canaanite settlers. The Philistines were fierce enemies of ancient Israel. Israel and Philistia were neighbouring countries.

Philistia

1philistia

Philistia is by the Mediterranean Sea. It’s major cities were Ashdod, Ashkelon, Ekron & Gaza. Ashdod, Ashkelon & Gaza are still major cities today. Ashdod & Ashkelon are part of Israel and Gaza is a territory of the state of Palestine. The state of Palestine claims the land along the coast from just south of Ashkelon to Rafah on the Sinai border.

Back to Gaza

gaza-strip-2_46961100

In many ways the Gaza strip serves the same purpose the Philistines once did. They are a sworn enemy of Israel that is right on the coast. They are neighbours with Israel and because of that there are many fights between the two countries. This is just like the fight between ancient Israel and ancient Philistia. I don’t know if any descendants of the Philistines live in Gaza but the ancient conflict and the modern conflict are caused by the same controversy. The Lord remembers where Philistia was and he declares he will punish the land. Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod & Ekron will face a day of wrath. Although most of the land is part of Israel today it must come to pass since it is written in prophecy. If you live in Gaza or if you live near Ashdod or Ashkelon and you have not done so it is time to put your faith in the Lord and accept his son Yeshua as the messiah. You can read more in The Gospel of God. Gaza wants a war, the Palestinians want to rise up. It is only bringing us closer to what is written in Zechariah and Zephaniah.

And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.

Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.

Ashkelon shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.

And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.

And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth, even he, shall be for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite. Zechariah 9:3-7

The plot: Tyre in Lebanon will fall first and next Gaza city will be defeated and the leader of Hamas will perish. The Gaza strip will launch its own attack on Israel and destroy Ashkelon and then Ashdod. Ekron the ancient city is gone but in its place there is the town of Mazkeret Batya. So this area is going to be destroyed/forsaken. I’m not sure who the bastard in Ashdod is supposed to be and I’m not sure about the governor in Judah reference but we will know at the time of this event. This is the same battle that is described in Zephaniah 2

For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.

And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.

And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity. Zephaniah 2:4-7

This is the same battle that is described in Zechariah 9. The word is against the entire sea coast. Where the Philistines had their empire. After the war the people of Judah that survive will inhabit the area. This will be the result of Israel’s final war with the Gaza strip and there will be no more Gaza Strip and no more Hamas. Gaza will be a part of the land of Judah.

Who will lead such a war? It could be Netanyahu and the IDF or it could be the two witnesses. I feel it is more likely that the two witnesses will lead this and they will have the blessing of the Lord for victory in all of their battles. The two witnesses are not here yet but they are coming shortly and the conditions are right for a large war between Israel and Gaza. Tensions are rising and both sides attack each other regularly again. This is the lead up to what is written in Zechariah & Zephaniah and its time to believe the Gospel so that you can be hid in the time of the Lord’s anger.

Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord‘s anger. Zephaniah 2:3

 

 

 

 

End of Indignation

cropped-end-of-indignation11.jpg

Today marks the end of seventy years of indignation on Judah and Jerusalem! It is the 70th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel. A homeland for the Jewish people. The Jewish people are from the tribe of Judah and this country is based in the land of Judea. The land that was settled by the tribe of Judah during the time of Ancient Israel. It must be that this is Judah & Jerusalem from the book of Zechariah. It’s the land of Judah and the city of Jerusalem is in it. The Lord will not call the land Israel because all of the tribes of Israel do not live in this country it is primarily the people of Judah + some people from Levi. It is important that Levi is there because Levites have a covenant with the Lord.

At that time the Lord separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day. Deuteronomy 10:8 

The time has come for Yehovah the God of Israel to redeem his people from their current state. The way things are right now does not come close to the way things are supposed to be for God’s people. There are going to be a lot of changes coming soon and this article reflects on what God is going to start doing.

If you don’t know what this is about be sure to read Zechariah 1 first and then the article. 70 Years of Indignation

These are 14 ways things will change after the time of indignation.

#1: Mercy on Jerusalem
Therefore thus saith the Lord; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the Lord of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. Zechariah 1:16

Jerusalem

#2 – Yehovah will be angry with those that oppress you
And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Zechariah 1:15

This is speaking of every person with a position of power that loves to keeps the wealth to themselves & they leave the people with less struggling. This speaks to everyone that oppresses the poor, the widows and the injured. This speaks to every country that is profiting from Israel’s wealth while it is taken from the people God gave it to.

#3 A double punishment on God’s people will turn into a double reward. Israel will be restored for their sakes and all that believe will be a partaker in this double reward.

For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. Isaiah 61:7

#4 Yehovah is going to turn to his people and you will know that he is intervening on your behalf.

Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 1:3

#5 The yoke will be removed from the neck of God’s people. Israel and the believers that are grafted in. In other words God is going to remove those things that are holding you back in life. That’s everything from your personal trials to political disadvantages and punishments.

12 Thus saith the Lord; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.
13 For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder. Nahum 1:12-13

no-chains

#6 Head and tail get cut off in one day
The head is the government that lead the people astray and the tail is made up of the false religious institutions and their leaders. They won’t lead you astray anymore.

14 Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. Isaiah 9:14-16

#7 Jerusalem will be called the city of truth and its inhabitants shall all be righteous. Yehovah says he will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.

3 Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain.

4 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.

5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.

6 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 8:3-6

Tel-Aviv-Yom-Kippur

#8 The horns of the Gentiles (Those without God) get frayed
Any device that allows them to dominate over Israel and godly people is going to be taken away or greatly diminished. This will include their influence, wealth, infrastructure, and even technology. Yes technology appears to be taken away. This is the reason swords are used during end time wars like Gog & Magog. If there were really missiles and airplanes they would have been mentioned and even if the prophets couldn’t describe them they would have admitted they were mystery weapons but the prophets knew what they were seeing. So they really saw swords and arrows.

20 And the Lord shewed me four carpenters.

21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it. Zechariah 1:20-21

#9 Elijah will come and restore all things. This will be a man with the spirit of Elijah he is coming as one of Yehovah’s two witnesses he will lead the restoration of all things. Everyone knows about the first Elijah. John the Baptist was the second Elijah paving the way for Christ & this Elijah will restore all of Israel and execute vengeance on those that hate God.

And Jesus (Yeshua) answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. Matthew 17:11

#10 the days of Daniel 9:24 are over.

Daniel 9:24 is one of the worst translations in the bible.

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Daniel 9:24

Nope! This is what it really says when it is translated directly from Hebrew

Seventy, Seventy is determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Daniel 9:24

It means two seventy year periods are appointed unto Israel to do all of these things. The first seventy year period was the 70 years of Babylon and the second is the 70 years of Indignation. When the Indignation ends Daniel 9:24 is fulfilled and those interesting events in the final chapters of Daniel will begin to take shape.

#11 Babylon will have a great fall

The Daughter of Babylon, one of Israel’s great enemies begins to slide down the slope towards its destruction. First fighting will take place inside of the country (Jeremiah 51) and around the time of the Day of the Lord an attack will finish this country off (Isaiah 13)

Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. Zechariah 2:7

SYZ_03_QM2_in_NYC

#12 Israel will inherit the land promised to Abraham

In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates. Genesis 15:18

So how does this come about? It will happen after the surrounding nations attack Israel and besiege Jerusalem. This is coming after the indignation ends.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:2

In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:6

This scripture says Jerusalem will be inhabited again in her own place. When the Lord refers to a place he often refers to the location of the place at the time that part of the bible was written. This verse was written this way because the Lord is speaking of Old Jerusalem and Mount Zion. He knows both are claimed by the Palestinians. After this siege Israel will claim the land and that includes Old Jerusalem and Mount Zion. When Old Jerusalem is part of the land of Judah again then Jerusalem will be inhabited again in her own place.

Abraham's Land

#13 healing shall go forth from the sign of the sun of righteousness!

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:29-30

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Zechariah 12:10

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. Malachi 4:2

#14 Elijah the prophet will come before the great and terrible Day of the LORD

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. Malachi 4:5-6

This Elijah is a man with the spirit of Elijah and he will come and lead the restoration of Israel just as the Messiah declared Elijah will restore all things. He comes as one of the Lord’s two witnesses that are coming to judge the people of Israel and turn the people to the Lord. When he comes some things will start to be restored but many will rebel against the two witnesses. The other nations and those inside Israel that do not wish to serve the Lord. They will cause the falling away that happens in Ezekiel 8-11 and the Day of the LORD is the result of this rebellion. Will you listen to the servant of the Lord when he comes?

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. Matthew 10:40

This was Christ speaking to his disciples. If you will welcome the messenger then you welcome Christ. If you welcome Christ then you welcome Yehovah the father. Elijah is one of the Lord’s messengers.

 

No Need to Follow the Crowd

No need to follow the crowd

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14

Wonderful advice from Yeshua (Jesus Christ) the Saviour. As a believer you ought to think that you are already on the straight and narrow. You look around and see how many people don’t even have an interest in any god. So since you believe and most don’t believe in Christ does that put you on the straight and narrow? Let’s take a look at how many people profess to be Christians.

A quick google search shows that 31% of the world’s population would profess to be Christian. That is 2.17 billion Christians! Now its true that Yehovah would love to have all 7 billion people on the earth saved as well as every person that existed before and every person that is about to be born.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Unfortunately bible prophecy shows us that a good percentage of the population gets cut off during the end times as if they were unbelievers. The bible uses words such as remnant which indicate a very small percentage of the population is left behind. Keep in mind that the Lord also chooses who will go and when they will go, it really isn’t random. This isn’t some tribulation rapture, this means a large percentage of people are going to die. We ought to make sure that we are following the faith as diligently as we can so that we might be able to make it through the destruction of our countries. Then we can come into restored Israel.

There are 2.17 Billion Christians but even that number is seems too big for the few that find the narrow gate or else Christ would have never said those words. He might have said something more like.. “Everyone that says to me Lord, Lord can enter into the gate.” He didn’t say that though he actually said this.

 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 7:21

This is simply another way of saying faith without works is dead. The works include doing what Father Yehovah wants us to do. What does Yehovah want us to do? He wants us to do everything in his word. Every commandment and ordinance is for us and we should be doing everything that can apply to us. (i.e commandments and ordinances that don’t require a temple, tabernacle or alter to be done because we don’t have those at this time.) This is what summarizing the law in the new testament was all about. It’s not that the law was changed or abolished. We needed new guidelines for how we should live for the Lord without a true temple or tabernacle.

Every law or commandment that is in the bible comes from these five books. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers & Deuteronomy. In Hebrew this is the Torah, in English it is the law of Moses. Everything Christ commands us to do comes from the first part of the bible and if he made any changes it was actually to raise the standard of how we apply that law.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:38-48 

Well what’s the point of mercy? Mercy is still granted to us because we need to be forgiven of all of those times we didn’t believe God at all. Even as we try to live out what we are supposed to be doing we make little mistakes. Mercy doesn’t mean we can ignore something we know we should be doing. I’ve fallen for that thought pattern before but now I want to stand in a good way as we approach the end of indignation. We should know what isn’t acceptable at all and avoid doing these things at all costs because this is also a scripture.

 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

Consider examining yourself, your brethren and your place of worship with the following scriptures.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Confession: One of my biggest weaknesses is lust and that manifests with fornication I have to straighten up too or else I’m doomed. Now chances are you aren’t like me and you didn’t have any part with fornication, you stay away from adultery, you aren’t acting like the opposite gender, you aren’t practicing homosexuality.

If you get covetous easily you have to get it under control, seriously. Same with any problems with alcoholism, curse words, dishonesty and all the like. Now notice that I didn’t assume you weren’t in idolatry. This is because idolatry is the sin that is going to trap a lot of people and they won’t realize they are doing it. Receiving the wrong Jesus and worshiping this Jesus would be considered idolatry. Worshiping a graven image is considered idolatry and a lot of people do it.

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. 2 Corinthians 11:4

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Exodus 20:4

If you really examine this carefully you’ll see that “the crowd” in terms of Christianity is doing this, what is the image of the cross? It’s not a biblical symbol and it fits the criteria of Exodus 20:4 so it must be a graven image.

18984150-church-with-a-cross-and-bell-vector-illustration-Stock-Vector-church-building-chapel

and furthermore they do not follow what the apostles did. That is they did not have everyone under one heart and one mind and one sound doctrine. You are all divided into different factions and different doctrines and this violates the ways the apostles did things. Can’t you see that a denomination is putting believer against believer?

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10

If that’s not enough consider the fact that the church will not speak about certain parts of the bible but with Yehovah its all or nothing. We can’t just learn about a part of his word and ignore what we don’t want.

A full article could be written on this point but think about this and decide if you really want to stay in the church now. It is just a deception and it will be gone in the next little bit after the indignation ends.

Finally consider this second verse about unacceptable works of the flesh.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21

So we know that the crowd stays away from adultery and fornication, lasciviousness, witchcraft & emulations (covetousness) but they have fallen for these other unacceptable sins just because they attend the churches.

Uncleanness, Idolatry, Variance, Wrath, Strife, Seditions & Heresies. Now Variance, Strife, Seditions, Heresies & Idolatry all go with having the denominations that believe different things. All are in a bad way because they just focus on a few parts of the bible. This is a heresy because they deceive you into believing in a way that is different from the way of Yehovah. When it comes to bible prophecy they won’t tell you about the restoration of all things before the return of Christ. They believe in a rapture during these days or they believe the great tribulation will have us all killed. (That doesn’t have to be the case) and they don’t tell you about going to restored Israel. They don’t explain that everyone who truly follows Christ is grafted into Israel which is explained in Romans 11. You get grafted into the vine and join the natural branches. The natural branches are the children of Israel. There is strife between denominations, just look at the crusades that occurred between the Catholics and the Protestants. Even today there is strife from church-goer to church-goer and from one denomination to another. They all argue over who is right and they beat each other up. A sedition is a division and that is exactly what a denomination is. Since everyone believes something a little different we have variance over the whole church, not good at all.

One thing you might not have realized is you are most likely in uncleanness. They probably didn’t tell you we could only eat certain types of meat. If it was addressed they most likely said everything was made clean after Peter’s vision but the problem is that vision was symbolizing people and not food!

christmas_feast_treats

On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12 Wherein were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven. Acts 10: 9-16

Here is the interpretation of the vision a few verses later.

28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Acts 10:28

So now I will show you the verses about what is clean to eat and what we should not eat.

And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.

10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

15 Every raven after his kind;

16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.

21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.

25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,

30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.

31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.

33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.

35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.

36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.

37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.

38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

40 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.

44 For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

45 For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:

47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten. Leviticus 11

To apply this to western diet just understand that the main red meat we see that should not be eaten is pork. The only seafood we can really eat is fish. We shouldn’t eat shellfish, octopus, squid or any other exotic seafood. All other unclean food is pretty foreign to us bugs are not eaten here and it is rare that you find someone that eats rabbits. Some delicacies that can still be eaten include turkey and goat. You can certainly keep eating your KFC and hamburgers too. Eating the other food is just one form of uncleanness.

Now you see the ways of the faith that will really set you apart from the crowd. Getting out of church is going to be hard because of the social connections but you need to get away from those that won’t proclaim the entire word. This period of separation is only going to last for a short time and then you will be better off. You will have double the social connections you had before just trust in Christ Yeshua (Jesus) and Father Yehovah. You might feel a little funny having to deny Pork & Shrimp and some might scorn you or even try to prevent you from cutting out that food from your diet. (I am in a situation like that when I am at home so I know how it feels) but you will be better off in the near future. In all things you do continue to strive for the narrow way that leads to life and if there is one thing that I have learned don’t wander between the things the bible deems unacceptable.

What Are We Waiting For?

What are we waiting for

All of the talk about end times is very intriguing. Everyone is putting out different theories and ideas about what they think is going to happen before Christ the Messiah returns to rule over the nations. So many are convinced that these are end times and the Messiah is just about ready to come back now. So what are we waiting for? The Antichrist, Mystery Babylon, A Rapture, Gog & Magog? It feels like we have been waiting for a really long time always promising that something is going to change yet it feels like the rumors in this world go on and on without anything big coming together or falling apart. So many of us are left in limbo about what is really coming on us at this time. The problem is we are getting ahead of ourselves with what to expect because not everyone has taken the time to see all of the different prophecies out there.

The #1 myth about the last days (the time we are in now) is it sounds like these are literally the last days before the end of the world. Some bibles have even translated the phrase “End of the world.” Into Matthew 24 and other places which leads to a terrible misconception. The end of the physical earth is not here.. It is really the end of the age. The end of the age of a fallen world. We are in the last days but its not the last days of the physical earth. It’s the last days of the time of the Gentiles. The time when the Lord had his face turned from Israel and had mercy on all those outside of the land. It was all part of God’s plan to allow Gentiles to learn about him.

For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief. Romans 11:30

This verse sums up the time of the Gentiles in a nutshell. Yehovah intended to turn away from Israel for a season because of their unbelief and that season is almost over. Collectively we have been very careless with the time of mercy and the fruit of that carelessness is everywhere. Now Israel is about to receive mercy because of the unbelief of the nations. This will set off the chain of end times events. It will set off everything that must be fulfilled before we can even say Christ is ready to come.

And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you. Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:20-21 

Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamashiach)  whom the heavens must receive until the times of restitution of all things. Anyone that suggests Christ could come any day isn’t considering this. Does the world outside really look restored? From a righteous point of view its a complete mess but this is the state the world needs to be restored from. We are just about ready for the restoration of all things! That is what we are really waiting for.

The world right now is like a very rough highway. Lots of bumps and cracks are in it and its old and worn out. To restore an old highway you tear up the surface right down to the sand and then afterwards the new pavement can be put down. In the same manner this is how the restoration of all things is going to work. This old system must be torn up and then a new system, God’s system will be set in place.

The restoration of all things can begin as soon as the Lord turns his face back to Israel. Israel is the country that sets the world in motion during the last years before Christ returns. Yehovah will turn his back to Israel after the end of 70 Years of Indignation on the land of Judah and Jerusalem. We know that land as the State of Israel, the nation was created on November 29th 1947 and for 70 years it looked like Israel would have to bow to the nations but this is coming to an end. The 70th anniversary is just a few days away now it is November 29th 2017. On that day we will all say Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?

Then the angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? Zechariah 1:12

On that day Yehovah will answer the prayer and say.

Therefore thus saith the Lord; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the Lord of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. Zechariah 1:16

That’s when he turns his face back to Israel and this is the beginning of the very end for the times of the Gentiles. I believe it officially ends on The Day of the LORD the last time Jerusalem gets trampled and looted. Either way we are certainly past the prime of that age and you can see the signs of these next verses.

18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.

19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.

20 And the Lord shewed me four carpenters.

21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it. Zechariah 1:18-21

The process of tearing up the old system begins, Yehovah will cause the horn of the Gentiles to be frayed. This means he will cause the nations to lose power over God’s people and he will terrify them with many great events and signs. Some of which have already started. This is why Christ said in the end times there would be wars & rumors of wars. Wars will be the mechanism for tearing up the old unrighteous system in place. Great Gentile nations (Daughter of Babylon, Magog, Persia, Egypt etc..) are overthrown as the result of a war. Israel will not escape since its at the center of the Lord’s restoration. Israel will see an overthrow of its old government and wars that will uproot the infrastructure of the Gentile system. Afterwards it will be a homeland for God’s people. It will receive a double portion of rewards and it will be the greatest nation.

So what are we waiting for before we see the restoration of all things? We are waiting for Yehovah to turn his face to Israel, next we will see the disruption of this old system. There will be wars, there will be uprisings, everything spoken of in Matthew 24. Somehow the old government of Israel gets overthrown and the two witnesses and judges rule the nation just as Isaiah tells us they will. The nations are troubled by prophecy about Israel being the leading nation under Yehovah and it will lead to a desperate attempt to destroy Israel. This will lead to the siege of Zechariah 12 and the attack on the Day of the LORD written in Zechariah 14. There will also be a day of vengeance where Yehovah goes to destroy the nations that rose up against Jerusalem and ravaged the city. Believers will be fleeing out of these nations and they will seek the Holy land where they can live in peace and serve God. The displaced tribes of Israel will be among those that are fleeing as well as many Gentiles. The Second Exodus has begun! This is where we are headed at the end of the era! Everything I wrote above is just a rough summary of the beginning of the restoration.

 

 

Lebanon: A Warning from the Word

Beirut Lebanon

Wars & Rumors of Wars intensified the week of November 5th-11th when Saudi Arabia set out to battle with Iran & Iran’s allies. Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen and they have decided that Lebanon declared war on them. Saudi Arabian assets were moved over into Cyprus so that they will have better access to Lebanon. On November 9th Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait & Bahrain told all of their citizens to leave Lebanon. This is the kind of action that is taken if there is going to be an attack on a place shortly. This is happening in Lebanon because of the group Hezbollah. A Lebanese faction that is allied with Iran. It appears Saudi Arabia wants to fight them.

Lebanon & The Controversy of Zion

This is all the physical manifestation of a larger spiritual battle that is taking place in the middle east over the Holy land. This is the land that was promised to Abraham after he made a covenant with the Lord. The inheritance was passed to Isaac and then Jacob. Jacob was renamed Israel and Jacob’s descendants are the children of Israel. The Holy land was given to Israel by the Lord. Lebanon is on the west coast of the Holy land.

Abraham's Landleba-MMAP-md

In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: Genesis 15:18

13 Thus saith the Lord God; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.

14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.

15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad;

16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by the coast of Hauran.

17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the north side.

18 And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And this is the east side.

19 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side southward.

20 The west side also shall be the great sea from the border, till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side. Ezekiel 47:13-20

Lebanon has been part of Israel’s territory in the past, during the time of David & Solomon. The bible tells us that a palace was built in the forest of Lebanon.

He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars. 1 Kings 7:2

Speaking of King Solomon, when he built a palace in Lebanon. Proof that it was part of the Israeli kingdom and the scriptures show it will be part of the Israeli kingdom in the future when the Lord restores the Holy land. I know that the people of Lebanon don’t want to hear that but you will not be living under today’s State of Israel. You will be living under the God of this world and all people that want to serve him can come and live in the land. All you have to do is believe The Gospel of God and live in accordance to his word.

All of the fighting in the middle east is just paving the way for this to happen and the bible tells us that there will be fighting in Lebanon.

Lebanon in Prophecy

 And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise.

And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.

Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire. Zechariah 9:2-4

Isaiah 23 also speaks about Lebanon.

The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.

Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle; thou whom the merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart of nations.

Be thou ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea hath spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, I travail not, nor bring forth children, neither do I nourish up young men, nor bring up virgins.

As at the report concerning Egypt, so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.

Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle.

Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.

Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?

The Lord of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth.

10 Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more strength.

11 He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms: theLord hath given a commandment against the merchant city, to destroy the strong holds thereof.

12 And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice, O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shalt thou have no rest.

13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.

14 Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.

15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.

16 Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.

17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that theLord will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.

18 And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the Lord: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the Lord, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing. Isaiah 23

These bible verses focus on Tyre and Sidon in Lebanon, which is modern Tyrus & Zidon.

Tyre

Sidon

I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them. Zechariah 10:10

Speaking of Ephraim, the tribes of Israel that were scattered throughout the world. Only Judah (Jews) and some people from Levi & Benjamin live in the State of Israel.

Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. Zechariah 11:1-2

Lebanon as we know it is defeated after the siege on Jerusalem. Lebanon would be part of “all the people round about.”

In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:6

These events have never happened before. The book of Zechariah will play out after the end of the 70 Years of Indignation

That will end November 29th 2017. Then everything else will be ready to play out and it looks like there will be a lot of trouble in the middle east. This must happen first before the region can be restored. Now the only way Saudi Arabia is going to fulfill prophecy is if God happens to be using them. In the mean time this appears to be another birth pang but Israel might get involved in the fighting and that would be more serious in terms of prophecy. Somehow the situation will change in a way that allows all of these things to happen because it must come to pass and it must happen soon. Beautiful Lebanon will be forced to experience fighting for the next little while.

Now the decision is yours people of Lebanon, the Gospel of God is going forth so that there will be salvation for all of the people that believe. It doesn’t matter if you are Jewish, Arab, Kurdish or Persian the holy land can still be your land if you will serve Yehovah the God of Israel and believe in his son Yeshua the Christ of God.

 

After All (Doubts & Fears)

 

After all

He used to think that he was ahead of his time

Kept it bottled inside with his pain from the past times

Waiting for a chance to romance with somebody in his league

Every time he go out and look for a Cinderella

They find out he’s walking on glass

And he’s like

“Please! I don’t mean no harm girl

I’m just dealing with a broken past”

Avoiding rejection is a feasible offer

Making friends will be my only task

 

Oooh, maybe it won’t be easy after all

Maybe I’ll just have to fake a smile after all

It may be a lonely evening after all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

 

He used to think he was headed to the top

And it was only just a matter of time till he makes it

To the 4th year, masters, internship & dream career

It felt like University was such a chore, studying like never before

So he deals with the stress trying to accomplish the dream

That he had since he was young

And all the while he sees all the problems that will come with growing up

And wonders what he’s still fighting for

 

[Hook]

Oooh, maybe it won’t be easy after all

Maybe I’ll just have to wait a while after all

And maybe I won’t keep dreaming after all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

 

[Hook]

Maybe it won’t be easy after all

Maybe I’ll just have to fake a smile after all

Maybe it won’t be easy after all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

Singing after all

Hey!

After all

Have you ever been afraid of your future? Does it look like serving Yehovah makes it harder for you to get into relationships or even get a job. After you learn about how the world really is do you ever ask yourself. What is the point of fighting for anything in the “American Dream” whether its romance, a career, or just overall prosperity. It can look bleak at time but just because it looks bleak doesn’t mean it really is bleak.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Your redeemer is strong Yehovah of hosts is his name! He is working everything that has happened in your life together for your good. Even better than that he is changing and restoring this world for your good. Soon we will be living the Lord’s dream and not the American or Western dream. Soon you will have a good life in restored Israel and it will be better than you could ever imagine. See The Year of Redemption & The Second Exodus Christ said not to worry and when we know all of these great things are coming up then we don’t need to worry about the western dream at all! They called us generation screwed but because of the Lord we are generation redeemed.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:25-34

 

 

Why Is So Much Suffering Allowed?

Question-Mark

If God is real then why would a loving God allow so much suffering in the world? This God is quite cruel.

The unbelievers have posed this question over and over and over again. It’s a very good question and I thought about it for a while. I thought so hard my head was almost hurting. I went to bed feeling a little bit discouraged because I just could not answer the question. I even prayed about the question to see if I would get a reasonable answer. Then when I was about to make breakfast the next morning I got an answer. Thanks Yehovah!

The reason God has allowed so much suffering in the world is so that the people have another reason to turn to him. All of our troubles are coming because right now we are separated from God. We try to live on our own without any advice from the father. Now if you’ve ever had the experience of growing up without your parents that naturally can lead you into trouble. How much more will growing up without our heavenly father lead us into a multitude of troubles and struggles. The struggles are there so we are always questioning ourselves and our ability to keep going on our own. It is a good thing to realize that we need the help of our creator. Through that you can gain salvation.

The Lord is not being cruel by doing this he is actually doing you a favour by letting you know everything is not okay. It would actually be more cruel if he let you have a perfect physical life while you don’t have God. No one would ever question themselves because they would not know the feeling of struggling. We would all blindly live a wonderful life on earth but then we would be condemned for eternity because no one would seek God. So even though it doesn’t feel good right now, suffering or struggling in this life might be the reason you have turned to God. The Lord knows that it is something he can use to get people to believe in him so there will continue to be struggling and suffering until the restoration of all things. Just keep in mind that trouble does not mean God has forgotten you, it is actually a sign that he cares about you.

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? Hebrews 12:6-7

If you want proof that trouble causes people to turn to God look into the book of Judges. When Israel turned away from God they ran into trouble and soon after they turned to God asking him to take the trouble away.

10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.

11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim:

12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger.

13 And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.

14 And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.

15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for evil, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed.

16 Nevertheless the Lord raised up judges, which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them. Judges 2:10-16

This happened several times in the book of Judges.

And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and forgat the Lord their God, and served Baalim and the groves.

Therefore the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years.

And when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother. Judges 3:7-9

We should actually be worried if it seems like we are at ease while we do not know God. That is the cruel trick that has destroyed the wealthy and the successful. They begin to feel like they do not need God because they never really have trouble with anything. They feel like they can get through life completely on their own with little or no guidance from above. Remember what the Lord said about those that seem to be at ease. It is better for you to question your life now, turn to the Lord and avoid the real trouble when it comes.

15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Zechariah 1:15
