Rise in High Intensity Earthquakes

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.

Miraculous Mercy in Israel

12 11 2018

BUS-FIRE-GAZA-12.11.18

Minutes after Israeli troops got off their bus, it was hit by an anti-tank missile from Gaza. It was truly the mercy of Yehovah God that only one soldier was injured. At one point, 200 missiles were fired in only two hours, more than one a minute. 60 were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense.

Rockets from Gaza pass 300 in five and-half hours The successive salvos of rockets from the Gaza Strip in five and a half hours on Monday climbed past 300 at 10 p.m. The second direct hit in Ashkelon caused extensive damage in a residential district. One person was injured.  In the first, the damage to a four-story residential building was heavy, but all the residents made it to shelters in time to escape harm.

Attacks from Gaza have injured 22 Israelis today — medical officials Times of Israel

Update Tuesday: ‘Miracle’ Kept 50 IDF Soldiers From Being Killed by Hamas Missile

Here is the video of the bus attack from Hamas TV.

Safety of Abiding in the Presence of Yehovah

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of Yehovah, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow (MISSILE)that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. Psalm 91:1-3

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

(Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the best simple explanation I know, from my friend, Keith Johnson. Also, here is a link to my book which explains it in detail, The Hebrew God Who Has No Name.)





HIS-Story

9 11 2018

j0309700The only accurate way to look at the history of the world, is to see it as God’s story. The written records of history from fossils to the Bible all tell one single narrative. It’s HIS-story. In fact, the best way to view the Bible, is as God’s recording of history, much of it even before it happens in our time/space continuum.

My friend, Rick Heeren, inspired me to write this blog from an important view of the Torah that we both share. The Torah (aka the Old Testament) was not cancelled when Yeshua/Jesus came as the Messiah. He was the Promised One to Abraham and all generations. His appearance brought to pass much of what was promised to the Fathers and the Prophets.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Matthew 5:16-18

Notice the phrase “jot or tittle.” Jesus knew exactly what he said, because He was referring literally to the tiniest letter (yod) and the tiniest marks in the writing of Hebrew letters. What an amazing confirmation by Jesus, that every word God spoke will come to pass to the most exact detail! Listen to Joshua, a forerunner of Yeshua/Jesus:

“Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yehovah your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.” Joshua 23:14

Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:9

Yet, the narrative did not end there. Even today much remains to be fulfilled, that was sworn by Yehovah God, to Abraham thousands of years ago. My favorite example is Psalm 102, which I call The Holocaust Psalm. The first eleven verses are a graphic literal description of the Holocaust. Then, verse 13 clearly states:

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

This also is readily seen in history. From 70 AD (the destruction of the 2nd Temple by the Romans) until 1948, the Jews never won a war. Since the rebirth of Israel immediately after the Holocaust, according to HIS-story, the Jews have never lost a war. Only Yehovah, the faithful God, could accomplish such a continuing miracle up to today. If one tries to predict the future, he only need consult the Bible as a continuing literal historical narrative. SELAH

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Heaven’s Election Results

6 11 2018

check-mark-42622_960_720The returns are in. Everyone who names the name of Yehovah will be saved. Here is a bit of Bible encouragement for you on this election day.

“For the eyes of Yehovah run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.  1 Chronicles 16:9

“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for Yehovah searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”  1 Chronicles 28:9

But Yehovah said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For Yehovah does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but Yehovah looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:2

Pray for rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Living Waters Ranch

John Fisk and I are in Challis, Idaho at Living Waters Ranch this weekend. My speaking session is Saturday afternoon; prayers appreciated. John and I are sharing amazing one on one time in this spectacular corner of the globe. “A brother assisted by a brother is like a lofty and fortified city.”

Christopher and Debbie James have a wonderful vision for this 2,700 acre ranch as a ministry refuge center for the West coast. Christopher also has a strong heart for Israel. I will be speaking on Ezekiel 36 which declares the end-time restoration, blessing and favor of God on Israel. This the subject of my latest book, Speak to the Dirt! (Click on sidebar picture to order it.) Right now it is available on Kindle, but will be published as a print book soon.

Here is a photo of John at the Tea Cup Cafe, which is in town, but an outreach of the Ranch.

Idaho, John in Challis

Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let Yehovah be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long. Psalm 35:27-28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
