2019 – Nazi-style Anti-Semitic Flyer

16 01 2019

anti-semitic flyer 1-13-19 newton ma

You glance at this flyer and assume it is from the 1930’s, but it was distributed in Newton, Massachusetts on Sunday January 13, 2019. Last year saw a rise in anti-Semitic hate in the U.S. and around the world. Please don’t be ignorant of this alarming trend. Pray for the Jewish people, and pray for Israel. The root of this hate is from the Evil One.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

This is not fake news, but is fully reported from credible sources. It really is happening, in the context of rising socialism, Marxism, and Islamic jihadism. Here is the documentation.

Massachusetts fliers accuse Jews of spreading ‘degeneracy’ – Anti-Semitic fliers in Newton, Massachusetts show devil-horned Jewish caricature, accuses Jews of pushing ‘pornography and degeneracy’.

Antisemitic flyers in NewtonPolice in Newton are investigating after messages of hate were found across the city.

Antisemitic incidents in US soar2-27-18 Antisemitic incidents in the US surged 57% in 2017, the Anti-Defamation League said on Tuesday, the largest year-on-year increase since the Jewish civil rights group began collecting data in 1979.

Rising antisemitism worldwide boils over at Pittsburgh synagogue10-28-18 Deadliest assault on Jews in US history follows 57% increase in antisemitic incidents in 2017.

The Synagogue Killings Mark a Surge of Anti-SemitismIn 2016, more than half of religious hate crimes in America targeted Jews, and in 2017, authorities have reported a surge of anti-Semitic incidents.

Europe’s rising anti-Semitism demands a new social contract“The Jews,” as in “All Jews must die” — the phrase that the far right Pittsburgh shooting suspect Robert Bowers allegedly shouted as he shot at the worshippers in the Tree of Life Synagogue — disregards the diversity of the Jewish people. Whether religious, cultural or political, the only thing that mattered was that they belonged to the Jewish people. … In recent years, we have seen that this effortlessly shifts into ancient anti-Semitic motifs, especially in Europe, and singles out Jewish collectivity from all peoples on earth.

Again it must be clear that this is beyond political or racist hatred. It is against Yehovah God Himself and His purpose for this earth and His creation. This is directly stated in Psalm 83. Notice the underlined pronouns speaking directly to God.

Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemies? Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up? They devise crafty schemes against your people; they conspire against your precious ones. “Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.” Yes, this was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you. Psalm 83:2-5

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Yehovah for the rain and snow now falling.

Locust Plague in Mecca

11 01 2019

locust 1-11-2019

The unprecedented event this week in Mecca amazingly corresponds to this week’s Torah reading in Jewish synagogues. They read from Exodus 10:1 – 13:16 about the locust plague in Egypt.

Is it simply irony that in the weekly Torah portion Jews read about the final five plagues – boils, fiery hail, locusts, darkness and death of first-born males – that God sent to afflict Pharaoh and the Egyptians, a swarm of locusts attacks Islam’s holiest mosque? Prophecy in the news

Watch: Locust Swarm Descends on Mecca’s Grand Mosque – Breitbart

MECCA’S GRAND MOSQUE, THE WORLD’S HOLIEST MUSLIM SITE, IS UNDER ATTACK BY LOCUSTS – Newsweek

SWARM & BUZZY – The Sun

This is under the category of things that make you go: Hmmm! Just last week we referenced Matthew 24:7 about the signs of Messiah Yeshua’s coming regarding earthquakes. Now in that very same verse we find the sign of pestilences.

“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Matthew 24:7

Do you think God may be getting our attention?

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain (and snow).

4,000 Terrorists

9 01 2019

sarah sandersControversy broke out when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stated the “4,000 terrorists” number on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. But the real truth goes way beyond the media twisting of the narrative. They think they have a big story because most were apprehended at airports. But here is my question: If “roughly 10 a day” are blocked by our excellent security at airports, how many are missed at the border where they avoid checkpoints entirely? The media gleefully trumpeted that even Chris Wallace exposed the “lie.” However, it turns out that it is a legitimate reference to a stat from the Department of Homeland Security:

The United States has also put in place measures to dramatically improve screening and vetting of individuals traveling to our shores. We have made applications more rigorous…intensified background checks…put in place new information sharing requirements…launched a new National Vetting Center to better leverage intelligence…and more.

The result is that we are identifying and stopping terror suspects who would otherwise have gone undetected.  In fact, on average, my Department now blocks 10 known or suspected terrorists a day from traveling to or attempting to enter the United States.      US flag signifying that this is a United States Federal Government website   Official website of the Department of Homeland Security

Blocking 4,000 terrorist where we make them pass through high security (facial recognition, hi-tech x-rays, watch lists, etc.) is an unbelievably high number. They know they will be screened and yet they try. Please just think about it. Why wouldn’t they eventually figure out it would be much easier to slip into our country in places with absolutely NO checkpoint or security of any kind?

The “4,000” stat actually confirms the danger of the open border. How many terrorists a day would we catch if every single person had to go through a security screening at the border just like airports? The border should be closed except for secure crossing points. 

Would you leave all your doors and windows open to your own home, and allow anyone enter anytime without your knowledge? Do rich people build walls around their property? Do bears live in the woods? Ridiculous questions!

And Oh, by-the-way, God is a nationalist, not a globalist. Nations were His idea.

He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest wheat. Psalm 147:14

You have set all the borders of the earth; Psalm 74:17a

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts17:26 NIV

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and give thanks for abundant rain and snow in Israel.

Rise in High Intensity Earthquakes

5 01 2019
earthquake oakland 1989

Magnitude 6.9: Oakland, CA on Oct. 19, 1989. The freeway collapsed (Paul Sakuma / Associated Press)

Major earthquakes have gone from one per decade to one per year!

Jesus said several signs will increase like birth pains before He returns (Matthew 24:8). This means those signs will increase in frequency and intensity before the Second Coming. One of the signs Jesus cited is earthquakes (Matthew 24:7). We’ve seen a marked increase in the frequency of high intensity earthquakes over the past two decades. 

From 1900 to 1950, the world only registered six 8.0 magnitude earthquakes. Since 2010, we’ve had ten. Earlier this year, more than 70 earthquakes hit the Pacific Ring of Fire in a 48-hour period. The earth is preparing for the King’s return! Prophecy New Watch

It is true that we have always had earthquakes, but the intensity rise indicates we are nearing the end of history as we know it. The birth pains Jesus spoke about are now happening. He was answering the question: “What will be the sign of your return?” His answer is called the “Olivet Discourse” because he was speaking on the Mount of Olives, the exact location of His Second Coming. This conversation is recorded in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13.

Here is an amazing observation. All of the signs He mentions are true in every generation to some degree, except one. Only one sign has an absolute time stamp. It is the sign of Jerusalem!

“And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:24

This time-specific reference has an exact historical fulfillment of June 1967. Jerusalem was trampled down by the Gentile nations from 70 AD to 1967. This was not even fulfilled when Israel became a nation in 1948. Jerusalem was still held by Jordan until 1967. The restoration of Jerusalem was not only a fulfillment of the overall restoration of Israel, it confirms that we are in the generation that will welcome the Messiah. Hallelujah!

Yehovah God, the Father, turned the page of history in 1948. For nearly 2,000 years the Jews never won a war. But since 1948, they have never lost a war. What changed? It is the time of God’s restoration and favor of Israel. It is in this very season that the great sign of the Second Coming was given to erase all doubt. Jerusalem is restored to Israel! Fasten your seatbelt, the Messiah is at the door.

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:20-21

Netanyahu Postage Stamp for Brazil

2 01 2019

Netanyahu stamp

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the swearing-in of Brazil’s new President on January 1. While there he was honored with a postage stamp. Most of the Israeli news coverage claims it calls Netanyahu “savior,” but I disagree. His picture and name are on the left, but the right side of the stamp is all about commemorating Israel’s 70th Year celebration. The word on the star of David is “Messiah.” My guess is that the Israeli media would rather interpret it as applying to the PM rather than recognize it was a statement about the soon-coming Messiah. Here is a close-up of lower right corner of the stamp. Below the “70” is the Hebrew for Mazel Tov!, which means: “Good fortune!”

It is the Brazilian evangelical/Pentecostal community that is behind the stamp, and that brought President Bolsonaro to power. Whatever the intent, I rejoice in the new healthy relationship between Israel and Brazil, South America’s largest country. The new President is going to move their Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Mr Bolsonaro also said this: I will move the embassy to Jerusalem. It’s not a question of if, just a question of when,” Netanyahu said. (Times of Israel)

Pray for a wonderful move of God in Brazil. Hallelujah! And also pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

New Israel Elections

29 12 2018

Prophesy To The Land! 6 jpgWhile most of us have been unplugged for the holidays, big news is breaking in Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu has called early elections for April 9. The scheduled time was November 2019 so it is only six months early, but is shaking up Israeli politics. The good news is that the Prime Minister has a big lead in early polls.

Political attacks on the conservative Likud government headed by Netanyahu are strikingly similar to those against President Trump. I have the same answer for both men. They are in place to do the will of Yehovah God regarding His restoration and favor of Israel. If either leader veers away from enacting God’s plan for the Land of Israel, he will surely fall.

The Land, The Land, The Land! It is always about the Land of Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump have been raised up by God to protect the Land of Israel. Ezekiel 22 is about the severe judgment against Israel for defiling the Land. It led to the scattering to all the nations because Yehovah could find no leader to stand up for the Land.

“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30

The judgment certainly was severe (see Romans 11:22). But the story does not end there. God promised the restoration of Israel and the Land, in the end times. We now see that He turned the page after the Holocaust (described in Psalm 102), and pronounced the set time to favor Zion had come!

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

From 70 A.D. to 1948 the Jews never won a war. From 1948 to now, they never lost a war. What changed? God turned the page from judgment to favor and restoration. Hallelujah! So, now He is using two leaders to stand in the gap for the Land of Israel. This is so much bigger than politics. Pray for President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Pray for rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
