Iran’s Rouhani: ‘WorldPowers Surrendered to Iranian Nation’s Will’ the weekly Standard

Iran’s Rouhani casts nuke deal as win for nation U-T San Diego

New Iran agreement includes secret side deal, Tehran official says LA Times

What could possible go wrong? President Obama leads the surrender using the old Viet Nam War era slogan: Give Peace A Chance.

Meanwhile, guess what Iran’s Foreign Minister and Chief Negotiator did on his way home from the Geneva signing ceremony today? He stopped off in Beirut, Lebanon to lay a wreath on the grave of the terrorist mastermind behind the 1983 massacre of 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers. (see: “Search for perpetrators” halfway down this article). How can we be so blind?

All along, of course, Iran has just been stalling and stonewalling to simply buy more time in their relentless quest for nuclear weapons. They have been caught lying many times. Iran’s President Rouhani even bragged about his prowess in deceiving the West in a video tape released in 2013, and an interview in 2006: How we duped the West.

TAQIYYA: The Islamic Doctrine of Lying

The fact that they say what we want to hear is actually a doctrine of lying called taqiyya. They are instructed that lying is a righteous way to achieve a desired effect for the advance of Islam and they will be rewarded for their “successful” lie. If you understand that this is true, it is a lot easier to understand their love of the Western media. They just tell us what we want to hear while going about their secretive purposes. Exerpt from Chapter Two of my newest book: SIMPLE ISLAM

Contrast this with Jesus’ words: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Islamists in Proverbs

9 12 2013

Today I submit four remarkably descriptive verses from Proverbs exposing the character of radical Islam. Do you agree? Of course this section is a warning for all of us, but seems so accurate of the demonic spirit that threatens the world.

The only hope for Muslims and for all of us is the Messiah Jesus. He is the only one who can deliver us from evil. He is the Son of God, our Savior: Yeshua ben Yehovah!

These six things Yehovah hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: ​​A proud look, ​​A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, ​​A heart that devises wicked plans, ​​Feet that are swift in running to evil, ​​A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19

Simple Islam front coverRather than condemning these traits, Islamists praise and honor their “martyrs” who succeed in killing infidels using these very methods. Think about the seven abominations one by one. Do they not coincide with radical Islam?

Again I say, the only hope for Muslims and for all of us is the Messiah Jesus. He is the only one who can deliver us from evil. He is the Son of God, our Savior: Yeshua ben Yehovah!

Israel: God’s Glory

4 12 2013

I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. Isaiah 46:13

What a wonderful way for God to display His power and glory, by redeeming banished Israel back to their land and their God! Embracing the literal restoration of Israel is pivotal to understanding God’s glory. My first book, Prophesy To the Land! was a literal reading of Ezekiel 36. Since then I have proven over and over the maxim learned from several mentors: “If you can possibly take a passage literally, do so.”

GloryOverIsraelGod’s glory is revealed in the awesome story of Israel. After the leaders of Israel refused Jesus as Messiah, and were banished from the land to wander the world, many concluded that Israel was replaced by the church in God’s salvation plan. However, that mistake (seemingly confirmed by the Holocaust) was blown away when God began to favor Israel on God’s own timetable:

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

I love to preach Psalm 102 which I call the “Holocaust Psalm.” Before Israel became a nation, one could claim that her judgment was permanent. However, since 1948, God has poured out blessing and favor for 65 years. The exiles have returned (and are returning), Jerusalem is back under Israeli sovereignty, God has miraculously protected and delivered them in multiple wars, and He has blessed them with massive newly discovered natural resources and technology. ​Trillions of cubic feet of natural gas are now flowing into Israel from vast fields offshore in the Mediterranean Sea.

Then you shall see and become radiant,​​ and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. Isaiah 60:5

Also consider that “Approximately 20 percent or 1 in 5 of Nobel Prize laureates are Jews, yet Jews make up less than 0.2 percent of the world’s population.” (Israel Today) FAVOR!

Finally, consider this recent headline: Netanyahu: Iran is the Darkness, We’re the Light: “We have come to banish the darkness and the greatest darkness that threatens the world today is that of a nuclear Iran,” he said. “We are committed to doing whatever we can to prevent this darkness. If possible, it would be preferable to do so by diplomatic means and if not we will serve as a light to the nations.”

While the world succumbs to the dark scourge of radical Islam, Israel is shining brighter and brighter. And as I said in my previous blog, “Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed.” As for me and my house, we will serve Yehovah, God of Israel, and His eternal covenant purpose to bless Israel.

Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; ​​I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,’ calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes My counsel, from a far country. ​​Indeed I have spoken it; ​​I will also bring it to pass. ​​I have purposed it; ​​I will also do it. ​​Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness: ​​I bring My righteousness near, it shall not be far off; ​​My salvation shall not linger. ​​And I will place salvation in Zion, for Israel My glory. Isaiah 46:9-13

Don’t forget that the word salvation in verse 13 above is Yeshua, the Hebrew word for Jesus. Jesus is the “salvation” placed in Zion for Israel.

And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. Zechariah 12:10

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Noun: SKULLDUGGERY

19 11 2013

Clinton-Benghazi-G1-620x362Noun: SKULLDUGGERY – underhanded or unscrupulous behavior; trickery.

Synonyms:  fraudulence, underhandedness, chicanery;

Informal:  shenanigans, funny business, monkey business, monkeyshines

“Yvonne found herself entangled in the skullduggery of Gregory’s private business deals”

Here is a partial list of Administration items that might qualify for skullduggery. Did I leave anything out? Do any of these not qualify as skullduggery?

The disastrous failure to support Iran’s dissidents, mishandling Egypt, promoting of the Arab Spring and Morsi, promoting the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria and other countries including the US, lying about radical Islam’s connections to Ft. Hood and multiple other terrorist attacks, the ban on Islam references in government documents, Benghazi lies, the Syrian zig-zag,  botched drone attacks, snooping and spying on Allies, politicizing the IRS tax authority, the NSA affair, the multiple betrayals of Israel and the ongoing persecution of her imprisoned agent, Jonathan Pollard, lying about the secret year-long Iran negotiations, lying about Palestinian “peace” talks, threatening Israel with a new intifada, regularly dis-respecting Israel’s Prime Minister, using executive orders to bypass Congress, lying about Obama-care promises to keep your doctor and your plan, the healthcare website screw-up, and finally: DENYING RESPONSIBILITY for ANY of the above. Skullduggery.

Remember the infamous comment by Hillary Clinton when asked about Bengazi? “What difference does it make?” That callous disinterest in finding the truth exposes a poisoned political culture that believes the end justifies the means. I conclude that the above list of skullduggery is not naïve or mistakes or ignorance or misguided. It is intentional. There is an agenda that is driving the decisions and wordplay. It is not accidental. We must wake up and stand for truth. We must speak up before it is too late. We must hold all of our elected leaders accountable to the foundational constitution of this blessed country.

It is not too late. I believe we will see the greatest revival of history here in the coming years. But, just as with the anti-agenda, we must be intentional. We will not keep silent. We must not be distracted by the cares of life. It is now time for every good man to come to the aid of his country. I am calling for believers to rise to the day. It is time to shine with the glory of Yehovah God. I’m not talking about guns, but the glory of Jesus. I am not preaching politics, but the Kingdom of God.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4

Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of Yehovah is risen upon you. For behold, at a time when darkness covers the earth, My glory cloud will cover My people. But Yehovah will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2 (my paraphrase based on Chapter 14 in my book: Generation LAST.)

Is Israel Alone?

11 10 2013

The obvious answer is no, because we know that Yehovah God will defend her. But I am referring to the practical question of Israel taking out Iran’s nuclear bomb program. It appears more and more that the US Administration is willing to accept a nuclear Iran. Israel cannot allow it because of Iran’s continued threats to destroy the Jewish nation.

So who will stand with Israel? Ironically, Saudi Arabia is the one who will help Israel because they fear Iran’s Ayatollahs more than Israel does. Check out this Reuters story: Israel and Saudi Arabia: Best frenemies forever?

This Dry Bones cartoon makes a serious point.

Dry Bones Saudi Arabia and IsraelThe Saudi fear of Shia Islam trumps their hatred of Israel for the present time. Also, as I have said before, Iran will be diminished before the Psalm 83 War and will not take part. This is confirmed by Ezekiel 38 where Iran is still around for the Gog/Magog War when the Psalm 83 nations are no longer a threat to Israel.

On a personal note, I have returned from a wonderful ministry trip to Idaho and the Global Transform Our World Conference in Hawaii. I was really blessed by a word from Ed Silvoso that when we think of thankfulness it is always us thanking God, but God also thanks us, His servants, for our labor in the Kingdom. Amen.

Please forgive me for slacking off on my blogs and YouTube videos. They will resume now. Israeli PM Netanyahu made his important speech at the UN (transcript here) on October 1 (video here). Yet, while I was traveling, most of the US news has been endless coverage of the government financial mess. However God is still on the throne and He is doing mighty things in the earth. We continue to focus on His view of events.

Praise the Lord we are not limited to humanistic atheism on one hand or the demonic death cult of Islamism on the other hand. We choose the higher way. We believe the Lord’s prayer for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth just as it is in Heaven!

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom,

Islamism Spreading Polio

4 06 2013

Rarely do I quote so liberally from another blog, but this information from Daniel Pipes at Middle East Forum is so shocking you need to read it for yourself.

PolioThe polio disease was on the verge of eradication when Ibrahim Datti Ahmed, president of the Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria and a physician, suggested at about this time in 2003 that the vaccination program in his country was part of a Western conspiracy to render Muslim children infertile. His call for an end to the polio immunization campaign touched a nerve and spread to other Muslim religious leaders in Nigeria, causing the vaccination process to slow down and incidences of the disease to pick up.

By now, Ahmed’s paranoia has sent the new wave of polio from Nigeria to Muslim populations in at least 17 other African countries and 6 Asian countries:

Africa: Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Central African Republic, Egypt, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, and Togo.

Asia: Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen.

Comments:

(1) A single conspiracy-obsessed Islamist, equipped with an organization and credentials, has caused polio not to be eradicated but instead to win a new lease on life.

(2) Thus has radical Islam brought misery to another aspect of human life – and made fellow Muslims its principal victims. (June 1, 2013) Daniel Pipes

Here are more reports that confirm this tragedy. The first from the New York Times details the murder of nine polio workers in Nigeria and ten in Pakistan by Muslims. What kind of religion is so paranoid and downright demonic? It matters what you believe!

Pakistan and Nigeria: Murders

Somalia: Parents reject polio vaccine over rumors spread by Islamic extremists

Nigeria: Polio Wave Hits Muslims because of Nigerian’s Paranoia

Analysis: Roots of the polio suspicions among Muslims in Africa.

Simple Islam — the book!

29 04 2013

Simple Islam front cover

Finally, after months of writing and years of research and prayer, my latest book is finished! It is now being printed and we should receive our shipment in about two weeks. As with our other books, they are available on a donation basis. The suggested donation for Simple Islam is $10.00 per copy with free shipping.  A ministry donation of $4.00 per copy in groups of ten or more is available (plus shipping and handling), so you can give them away. This is a special introductory bulk rate for a limited time. Our address is below.

Here is the back cover text with the aim of the book.

“Contrary to majority opinion, we do not all worship the same God. Christians and Jews worship Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Clearly identified as a Father in the Bible, He also has a Son.

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, if you know? Proverbs 30:4

Islam, by contrast, adamantly denies their god is a father or has a son. The Jesus of the Quran is not the Son of God, and did not die. The aim of Simple Islam is to clear the chatter that confuses the issue. As long as the public (and the last two Presidents) insist that we all worship the same God, they will never learn the truth.

A few simple contrasts and the 20/20 hindsight of history will answer your most important questions about Islam. In addition, you will be equipped to share the true Jesus with Muslims everywhere. Although Islam is a pagan religion, Yehovah God loves Muslims; and Jesus died to bring them into His Kingdom. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD…!”

Finally, here is the outline of Chapters.

Consider the Facts

1. Voices from the Desert

2. Early Roots of Islam

3. Who is Molech?

Contrast the Faiths

4.  Who is the False Prophet?

5.  The Intention of Islam

6.  Another Jesus?

Compare the Fruits

7.  John of Damascus

8.  What about the Crusades?

9.  Who were the Barbary pirates?

10. Where the Domino Theory Ends

Action Items

11. Stop Saying the Names of Other gods

12. Help Muslims Become Ex-Muslims

13. Invite Jesus into Muslim Hearts

Your prayers and donations for this project are humbly received and greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The Day the Language Died

8 04 2013

Look closely at the attached picture of a Power Point slide from an US Army/Pentagon Army Reserve training presentation. Notice that every flag except one is Islamic (one is Jewish). Now notice the list. The first one on the list, Evangelical Christianity in the US. The third is ultra-orthodox Judaism. Later on down we find Catholicism, US.

Watch list

The incident occurred during an Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism. (Update 4-17-13: A spokesman for the Army acknowledged the incident but denied it was Army policy. Army spokesman George Wright later said it was an isolated incident not condoned by the Dept. of the Army. And the slide, he said, was not produced by the Army nor did it reflect their policy or doctrine.)

This is the politically manipulative and ridiculous nonsense that has replaced truthful information about Islam and jihad. And the implications of it are quite ominous. Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism and “Islamophobia” are forms of “Religion Extremism” on par with al-Qaeda and Hamas? Then how long will it be before the Obama Administration goes to war against them, as it has repeatedly declared that it is at war with al-Qaeda?

Islamophobia is extremism? Consider the conclusive statistics in this article. Not a Single Muslim Has Died Due to Islamophobia: As the usual voices fault “our oversaturated Islamophobic environment” and “growing anti-Muslim hate,” they neglect to mention how rare it is for an actual or perceived Muslim to die in a hate crime. By the FBI’s count, 74 people were killed in hate crimes (“murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” in Table 4) from 2002 to 2011, but not a single one in an anti-Muslim incident. Indeed, the FBI lists no anti-Muslim fatalities since 1995, corresponding to the earliest report available.

Watch list 2

I see this as the death of our language. Words no longer mean what the dictionary says they mean. Even the definition of “extremist organizations” in a later slide in the same Army Reserve training cannot possible be applied with such a broad brush condemnation. Literally hundreds of millions of Catholics and evangelical Christians fall into this ridiculous list. However, it is worse than ridiculous, because this redefinition is intentional and it is well under way.

I don’t have enough space to detail the redefinition of “patriot”. But take the time to read this recent Editorial in the LA Times. For 250 years patriots have been held up as heroes of liberty. Now the term is un-righteously sullied by perverting language, and in a major newspaper. SHAME! The Editorial ends with this dire warning against “patriot groups”. These groups should be closely monitored, with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists. Are you kidding me? I am not making this up. Take money from hunting foreign terrorists to hunt for patriots! Insanity.

Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter. Isaiah 59:14

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

Muslims Discovered America before Columbus?

4 02 2013

Nihad Awad (second from right) stands to President Bush's left, when Bush said "Like the good folks standing with me, the American people were appalled and outraged at last Tuesday's attacks [on Sept. 11, 2001].

Nihad Awad (second from right) stands to President Bush’s left, when Bush said “Like the good folks standing with me, the American people were appalled and outraged at last Tuesday’s attacks [on Sept. 11, 2001].

What does President Bush have to do with the outrageous claim in the title of my commentary? This picture was taken on September 17, 2001 during the President’s visit to the Islamic Center of Washington, DC. It was during this period immediately after 9/11 that he called Islam “a religion of peace“.

My focus is not on the President, however but on the man second from right. His name is Nihad Awad and he is the subject of this post. He is the Executive Director and Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It was in his December 27, 2012 interview with a Saudi TV network Iqra TV) that he claimed Muslims beat Columbus to America. The video interview is here.

And here are some quotes from the 12-27-12 interview on Saudi TV.

Nihad Awad: In my view, Islam and the US are twins, linked by common values.

It is extremely important to know how Islam began in the US. There are historical accounts according to which the Muslims preceded Columbus, who is said to have discovered the US. Some documents and accounts indicate that Muslim seafarers were the first to reach the US.

After 9/11, we saw great interest among the American public in becoming better acquainted with Islam by studying and reading about it. We found that very few books on Islam were available in the public libraries, which are frequented by many Americans, and that most of these books were misleading or anti-Islamic. Therefore, we decided to publish several books on Islam, written by Muslims and non-Muslims. We decided to send them free-of-charge to the American public libraries.

There are 16,200 public libraries in the US, serving 300 million Americans. We managed to provide this collection, free-of-charge, to half of these libraries. (translated by MEMRI TV).

I just thought you would like to know. If several books means at least three, then we are talking about a minimum of 25,000 books! Beware of CAIR!

How tragic the timing, as we completely strip our schools and hotels of the Bible, Islam is ready with pagan propaganda to pervert the minds of gullible Americans. May Yehovah, God of Israel have mercy on our land. Our God is a father whose Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah, is our Savior. Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah of all who believe in Him and the Father’s Promise.

For unto us a Child is born, ​​unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder.  And His name will be called ​​Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, ​​Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. ​​Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. ​​The zeal of Yehovah of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7

200 Tanks, 16 F-16s

26 01 2013

f16_file1The Obama Administration is sending 200 Abrams tanks and 16 state of the art F-16 fighter jets to Egypt’s Mohammed Morsi. What could possibly go wrong? Has anyone noticed that Egypt is not being attacked or threatened by any nation? Does it matter that the 2010 deal was given to Murbarak before the Arab Spring revolution put the Muslim Brotherhood in power?

“It is appalling that the Obama administration would send F-16s and 200 military tanks to Egypt in the wake of the instability, [and the] anti-American and anti-Israel atmosphere,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-Texas), told FoxNews.com.

Morsi’s Anti-Semitic ‘Apes and Pigs’ Comment Wasn’t Taken Out of Context, It Was Taken Out of the Quran (The Blaze.com) It is, by now, a well-established fact that Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has, on repeated occasion and for over a decade in public life, referred to the Jewish people as “descendants of apes and pigs.” Despite asserting that his current bad press is merely the byproduct of a smear campaign led by the “Jewish-controlled media” (thereby doubling down on the hackneyed anti-Semitic slurs), the Muslim Brotherhood leader actually has an excuse for his  consistently inflammatory rhetoric. After all, he is simply citing the Quran. Tiffany Gabbay
 

The scripture which keeps coming to mind is the one in 2 Thessalonians that says that God Himself will send a strong delusion to those who do not love the truth. We must love and cherish truth even above our own opinions and traditions.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Will Morsi Back Down or Crack Down?

12 12 2012

Mohamed_Morsi_croppedThe meltdown of Egypt continues…will Morsi back down or crack down?

We are closely following the Egyptian events in the context of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 19. It is still amazing every day watching prophecy unfold before our eyes. My past commentaries on Egypt are here and here for review. Today we need to zero in on one verse.

“And the Egyptians I will give Into the hand of a cruel master, And a fierce king will rule over them,” Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts. Isaiah 19:4

Keep your eye on Pharaoh Mohammed Morsi. This week he has been under tremendous pressure to back down from his actions to Islamicize Egypt. I predict he will not back down, but crack down. The crisis is not going to get better, it is destined to spiral down to tragic dimensions. Even the Nile River will be dry all the way to the delta. This Saturday (and also 12-22) is the Sharia constitution vote. Look for things to get ugly after that,  an un-civil civil war.

However, make sure you read the end of Isaiah 19 which speaks of salvation and worship of Yehovah, the God of Israel. This will follow the Psalm 83 War, when Israel will rule from the Nile river of Egypt to the Euphrates River in northeastern Syria.

Check out my Issachar Forum prophecy video posted every Sunday night, commenting on the week’s events fulfilling Bible prophecy.

Super(natural) Storm Sandy

30 10 2012

Manhattan goes dark. AP

Doreen and I are leading a prophetic intercession group for five Mondays, ending on election eve, praying for America and Israel’s elections. Last night at the height of super-storm Sandy, we heard some profound words from Heaven that are worth sharing.

The Lord showed us that the storm was occurring on two levels. The physical storm manifests the supernatural storm raging over America and indeed the world because of the elections. There is war in the Heavenlies. As Paul stated in Ephesian 6, we don’t wrestle with man but spiritual wickedness in high places.

A sister shared from Daniel 10 of Michael, the Archangel, who battled with the Prince of Persia. This same principality is now at war with Israel and America. I believe this storm reflected the spiritual battle over our nation. This would be the supernatural principality over Persia, which is modern-day Iran, the purveyor of Islamic radical terrorism.

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” Daniel 10:12-14

We must continue to pray the Bible and vote the Bible one week from today. Entire nations are in the balance even beyond the United States. The God of Israel, who is rich in mercy, will hear our prayers and will heal our land.

As I was listening to Abba in the afternoon, He led me to Job 37. The entire chapter is quite appropriate, but especially verses 5-13. It describes the current storm, plus it explains how God uses storms.

God thunders marvelously with His voice; ​​He does great things which we cannot comprehend. ​​For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; ​​Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. ​​He seals the hand of every man, that all men may know His work. ​​The beasts go into dens, and remain in their lairs. ​​From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds of the north. ​​By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen. ​​Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; ​​He scatters His bright clouds. ​​And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, that they may do whatever He commands them on the face of the whole earth. ​​He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy. Job 37:5-13

There are three intertwined effects: for correction, for His land, or for mercy. The proper response to calamity for the believer is to cry for mercy, and that is what we prayed last night. We embrace any corrections Yehovah brings and we pray for our land and for Israel. The stubbornly wicked react by cursing God. Yet, the sober reality of the devastation, does turn some rebellious hearts to repentance and the cry for mercy. May God in His mercy still yet bring one more great revival to the NorthEast.

“For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Therefore turn and live!” Ezekiel 18:32

This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name has been obscured for 2,500 years, but is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!) (for deeper study click here.)





Red Line!

27 09 2012

This is one of those days when I can’t decide on the headline.” Inducement!” was my alternative. I settled on “Red Line!” because it was the most graphic moment of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech today to the United Nations General Assembly. With President Obama reluctant to draw a red line, the PM made a compelling case for its necessity. Iran must be stopped before the last stages (building a nuke) or it will be too late. He explained in simple terms why it can’t wait. He also set a reasonable timetable, reaching the red line as early as next Spring.

Inducement! Though the visual graphic of a bomb was memorable, the best line in his speech was the quote from Bernard Lewis: Mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement because that is what they’re hoping for. This is a major point that must be understood. MAD, or mutually assured destruction, worked with the USSR because they didn’t want to die anymore than we do. It does not work with Iran because they want to die for their bloodthirsty pagan god. It is their only guarantee of salvation. (Aren’t you thankful that Jesus died in our place?) They also believe it is necessary to start a catastrophic world war in order for Islamic Sharia to rule the planet. I have maintained for years that communism might have won if it was not based on godless atheism. This reveals the more serious threat of Islam. It has a world conquest ideology plus the passion of religious fervor.

One point I often make in my speaking tours is about the future of the European Union. The question has been raised for years whether Turkey will be admitted to the EU. With the rise of Islamic domination of Europe, the correct question is this. Will the EU be permitted to join the worldwide Islamic Caliphate headquartered in Turkey? Since the Arab Spring, events are unfolding so fast that most observers are way behind. The only way to keep ahead of the developments is to read the Bible prophesies. They are literally being fulfilled day by day. (This is clear just in the last few weeks with Egypt according to Isaiah 19.)

​Surely the Lord Yehovah does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. ​​A lion has roared! ​​Who will not fear? ​​The Lord Yehovah has spoken! ​​Who can but prophesy? Amos 3:7-8

Why are you defending Baal?

21 09 2012

The Muslim world is on fire on the pretext of cartoons, a video, and burning Korans. Of course, the real reason is a clash of world views between Islam and the Western Judeo-Christian culture. But let’s stick with the protests for now. Daniel Pipes suggests a cartoon a day till they just wear out.

There is one basic flaw revealed by the radical rioters. If their god really is god, why do they defend him, why doesn’t he defend himself? This seems quite clear in the Biblical account of Gideon tearing down the altar to Baal. The town folk demanded that Gideon’s father turn him over to them.

“Bring out your son,” the men of the town demanded of Joash. “He must die for destroying the altar of Baal and for cutting down the Asherah pole.” But Joash shouted to the mob that confronted him, “Why are you defending Baal? Will you argue his case? Whoever pleads his case will be put to death by morning! If Baal truly is a god, let him defend himself and destroy the one who broke down his altar!” From then on Gideon was called Jerub-baal, which means “Let Baal defend himself,” because he broke down Baal’s altar. Judges 6:30-32 NLT

It seems clear to me that apologizing to Muslims for American free speech is the opposite of this “wisdom of Joash.” I am so thankful that I serve the living God, Yehovah, of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the God of Israel and can defend Himself. Yehovah does not demand we give our sons to die for Him, He gave His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), to die for us. It matters what you believe.

On a personal note, thanks to all who prayed for my Idaho ministry. I spoke seven times in ten days with passionate responses each time. God is faithful!

Timing is Everything

15 09 2012

Watching the US Administration’s feckless attempts to blame an amateurish YouTube video for this week’s Muslim violence against America is embarrassing. Within hours of our Libyan Ambassador’s death there were multiple reports of a well-planned Al Qaeda attack: In a video tape released a few hours before the attack, Zawahri called on the faithful to take revenge on the United States for liquidating one of the organization’s top operatives, Libyan-born Abu Yahya al-Libi in June by a US drone in northwestern Pakistan. it was a professionally executed terrorist operation by a professional Al Qaeda assassination team, whose 20 members acted under the orders of their leader Ayman al Zawahri after special training. They were all Libyans, freed last year from prisons where they were serving sentences for terrorism passed during the late Muammar Qaddafi’s rule. (DEBKAfile Sept 12)

The timing was obviously chosen as the US was remembering the fallen of 9/11. The video indeed had a role, however. Even though it had been on YouTube for months, it was shown on Egyptian TV in order to stir up the mass hysteria protests that would serve as cover for assassination team in Libya. This is an old Communist tactic Lenin made famous, relying on “useful idiots”.

Looking ahead the next few weeks, we should be aware of very significant timing. This Sunday and Monday is Rosh haShana, the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles high holy season in Israel and for Jews around the world. Major attacks against Israel have often occurred on Jewish holy days. The most famous was the 1973 Yom Kippur War, so named because the attack was launched on that day. We need to really be in prayer this weekend and the next two weeks. Israel may attack Iran before our elections. The Muslim hysteria may accelerate. The US Administration looks weak and unsteady to the Muslim world which only emboldens them to further action.

Finally, it must be noted that the tragic loss of American lives in Libya had a connection to President Obama’s snub of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on Monday. (Genesis 12:3) He cancelled a meeting between the two at the United Nations on Sept 27 that had been announced as early as Aug 25. The reason given was “busy schedule” even though he would appear on Letterman and a fund raiser with Beyonce’. He had also agreed to a meeting with Egyptian President Morsi. On Tuesday, President Obama held a one hour phone call with Netanyahu and still refused to set a US “red line” for Iran. All of this preceded the attack on our Libyan Consulate. There is a direct cause and effect of actions by any government against Israel and consequential events. Make no mistake. (For further overwhelming evidence of this pattern, please read the excellent book by William Koenig: Eye To Eye.)

Timing is everything!

“Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; ​​For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. ​​Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. ​​Come, go down; ​​For the winepress is full, The vats overflow—​​For their wickedness is great.”  ​​Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! ​​For the day of Yehovah is near in the valley of decision. Joel 3:12-14

Odd Way to Worship

6 09 2012

 

Today’s cartoon is not about Islam. It is about Islamism, the international, antisemitic, anti-female, anti-freedom, anti-western, fascist movement that is now out of control and infecting Muslims around the world …and inciting them to kill. Islamism is the enemy that the world refuses to name. (Yaakov Kirschen -Dry Bones- Israel’s Political Comic Strip Since 1973)

One of the most encouraging signs of the end of this age is revealed in this cartoon and the commentary by the cartoonist. For many years I proclaimed that Israel and the church were on parallel tracks. However, the Lord corrected me a few years ago. They are not parallel (meaning they would never meet) but they are merging. Mr. Kirschen is an Israeli who is asking the right question. He illustrates that the god of Islam is different in character from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Christians and Jews preach that God is love. Islam’s god is primarily a god of War. Our God is a Father. The Koran adamantly and utterly rejects that its god could, or ever would be a father. It is considered blasphemy.

Therefore, I rejoice to see this step toward the reconciliation destined for Jews and Christians.

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4

Please keep me in prayer as I minister in Idaho the next two weeks. Thank you.

Shaking Hands with the Devil?

2 09 2012

(The following comments are from Barry Segal of Vision For Israel from his newsletter.)

Press photos of the UN chief shaking hands with Ahmadinejad and smiling into the camera are somewhat reminiscent of British PM Neville Chamberlain meeting and shaking hands with Adolf Hitler in Germany on September 22, 1938. This was eight days before Chamberlain’s famous arrival in Britain claiming peace had been won with the German dictator. The purpose of the meeting was to debate Hitler’s takeover of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. Chamberlain mistakenly believed Hitler was only concerned with the Sudetenland and that war could be averted by giving in to the dictator’s demands. The former British prime minister is now remembered as the man who tried to avert war through “appeasement” that is, pandering to Hitler’s demands for more territory in Europe.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20 (Guest post from Barry Segal, JNN NEWS)

Egypt’s Dark Night Begins

13 08 2012

While a billion people watched the Olympics, Egypt was plunged headlong into the Muslim Brotherhood  nightmare era. President Morsi accomplished in one week, without firing a single shot, a feat that took Turkey over a decade to achieve. Turkey’s Islamists gradually infiltrated all areas of the society for over a decade finally wresting control from the army secularists.

Western observers may seem clueless, but the Bible predicts Egypt’s night, in Isaiah 19. Let’s review just the last week.

August 5 – Terrorist attack on Egyptian forces on the border of Israel and Gaza killing 16 Egyptian soldiers. Times of Israel

August 8 – Morsi fires Intelligence Chief. Egyptian president fires intelligence chief over militant killings of 16 soldiers in Sinai. Washington Post

August 9 – 60 American made and supplied Egyptian tanks enter Sinai. Egypt reportedly sends 60 tanks, 400 armored vehicles to El Arish in biggest deployment since 1979. Israel National News

August 9 – TV host is taken off-air. Tawfiq Okasha’s Faraeen satellite television channel, which is known for its ultra-nationalist, anti-revolutionaries, anti-Brotherhood stances, ceases transmission on Thursday evening on orders of Egyptian state authorities. AhramOnline

August 11 – An Egyptian court ordered the Saturday editions of a newspaper confiscated over allegations it insulted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi. The paper, a tabloid owned by a Christian businessman, has been fiercely critical of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood while showing strong support for the military council. ABC News International online

August 12 – Islamist takeover complete: Morsi Fires Top Defense BrassMuslim Brotherhood consolidating power: Defense Minister and Chief of Staff sacked, military shaved of extra powers. – Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has sacked the entire leadership of the country’s defense establishment. Morsi also ordered the retirement of the commanders of the navy, air defense and air force. Israel National News

For a good analysis of the week’s shocking Egyptian soft coup, read the excellent piece in the Jerusalem Post by TZVI MAZEL: Morsi’s Velvet Revolution

Also, video analysis: Real News from The Blaze.

So, what does all this mean? It was spelled out clearly some 2500 years ago by the prophet Isaiah. Read Isaiah 19. It reveals the evil darkness overtaking Egypt right now, but ends with the glorious salvation of a remnant of Egyptians who will worship Yehovah, the God of Israel. Even now there is a Cairo church of 40,000 believers who worship Yeshua. Here is a must-see video: Thousands in Egypt shout Yeshua for 10 minutes.

In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. In that day there will be an altar to Yehovah in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to Yehovah at its border. It will be a sign and a witness that Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to Yehovah for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them. Yehovah will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know Yehovah and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to Yehovah and will keep it. Yehovah will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to Yehovah, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them. Isaiah 19:18-22 NLT (I have changed the generic word “LORD” used in English translations to the Hebrew literal name of God, Yehovah, that occurs in the Hebrew text. This passage is so flat using the generic when it is intended to reveal our Father God’s personal name.)

Hizbullah Not Terrorist Org

30 07 2012

Nasrallah – Not a Terrorist?

The European Union says there is no ‘tangible evidence’ that Hizbullah is a terror org. Today’s post is almost entirely quoted from a Gabe Kahn article at Israel National News. I quote from it here to expose the hypocrisy and willful ignorance of Israel’s enemies in the West, including the EU. Do you remember #3 on this list where 241 US Marines were killed in 1983? Pray for truth to triumph over lies.

 

Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter. Isaiah 59:14

While Hizbullah claims it does not carry out terror attacks, Western and Israeli officials have long blamed Hizbullah for direct involvement in, or orchestrating by proxy:

  1. The 1982–1983 Tyre headquarters bombings.
  2. The April 1983 U.S. Embassy bombing.
  3. The 1983 barracks bombing that killed 241 US marines, 58 French paratroopers and 6 civilians at the US and French barracks in Beirut.
  4. The Hijacking of TWA Flight 847 in 1985.
  5. The Lebanon hostage crisis from 1982 to 1992, including the kidnapping and torture-murder of CIA Beirut station chief William Buckley.
  6. The 1992 Israeli Embassy attack in Buenos Aires, killing 29, in Argentina.
  7. The 1994 AMIA bombing of a Jewish cultural centre, killing 85, in Argentina.
  8. The 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, which killed 19 Saudi citizens, and 1 American.
  9. The 2000 cross-border kidnapping and murder of IDF soldiers Adi Avitan, Benyamin Avraham, and Omar Sawaidwere.
  10. In 2002, Singapore accused Hizbullah of recruiting Singaporeans in a failed 1990s plot to attack US and Israeli ships in the Singapore Straits.
  11. The 2005 assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri for which 4 Hizbullah members were indicted by the Hague.
  12. The 2006 kidnapping and murder of IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, which precipitated the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War.
  13. Indiscriminately targeting Israeli civilians with rocket fire during the ensuing 34 day conflict.
  14. The January 15, 2008, bombing of a U.S. Embassy vehicle in Beirut.
  15. In 2009, a Hizbullah plot in Egypt was uncovered, where Egyptian authorities arrested 49 men for planning attacks against Israeli and Egyptian targets in the Sinai Peninsula.
  16. A failed 2011 bombing in Istanbul targeting the Israeli consul, which left eight dead.
  17. A spate of bombings targeting Israeli diplomats in India, Georgia, and Thailand in early 2012.

Please think for yourself when you read the news. Mark Twain’s quote could be updated (with my humble apology). “If you don’t read the Internet, you’re uninformed. If you read the Internet, you’re mis-informed.”

Mohammed Morsi’s Wife

1 07 2012

One year and one week ago we learned of the scandal of Rep. Anthony Weiner who is now disgraced and out of office. But the real revelation of that story was about his wife, Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff. It was the subject of my commentary then and is reprised below for your information.

However, there is breaking news now about a major connection between Huma Abedin’s mother and the new Egyptian President’s wife, Umm Ahmed. Both women are in the top 63 leaders of the Muslim Sisterhood, according to multiple reports. Walid Shoebat broke it first in his blog.

The question then arises as to a type of conflict of interest for Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Watch her proclamations about Egypt. Coupled with President Obama’s insistence that the MB attend his Cairo speech in 2009, no wonder this Administration has embraced the Brotherhood in Egypt. This is one to watch.

Anthony Weiner’s Wife June 21 2011 (Re-Posted)

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them. Ephesians 5:10-13 NLT

I will not comment on the sins of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The text above is enough said. However, in our sympathy for his new bride expecting their first baby, something has come to light that is not about immorality, but ideology. Walid Shoebat, a Christian ex-Muslim, has just reported that Huma Abedin, the offended wife, is more than simply the loyal “right hand woman of Hillary Clinton”. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she was educated in Jedda, Saudi Arabia from age two to eighteen. Her father was an Islamic scholar of Indian descent while her mother is originally from Pakistan.

The plot thickens with the revelation that her mother is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia, according to Arabic news sources cited by a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative. Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim Brotherhood activist in the Holy Land, translated sources that say Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor of sociology in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, belongs to the Sunni movement’s women’s division known as the Muslim Sisterhood. One of the Sisterhoods aims, reportedly, is “to spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes.”

The burden against Egypt.

Egyptians Against Egyptians 2.0

20 06 2012

Newsflash: 80 Rockets Fall on Israel in last two days – Hamas unleashed by Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian victory (my comments later this week)

Chaos is engulfing Egypt following the presidential election won by Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate. Although the military candidate, Shafiq, also claims victory most reports agree that Morsi won. Last week the courts disbanded the new MB dominated parliament which was confirmed Sunday by the military leaders. Some called the actions a military coup by the military. No matter who is officially declared the winner tomorrow, the other side will likely riot in the streets. We truly have reached the prophesied point of God’s Isaiah 19 actions.

The burden against Egypt. Behold, Yehovah rides on a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt; the idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. “I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; everyone will fight against his brother,  and everyone against his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.the spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel,  and they will consult the idols and the charmers, the mediums and the sorcerers. and the Egyptians I will give into the hand of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts.The waters will fail from the sea, and the river will be wasted and dried up. Isaiah 19:1-5

We know that the end of the chapter is redemptive, with Egypt joining Israel (after the Psalm 83 War), but before then will be civil war. Here are (linked) quotes from my previous commentary on Egypt outlining a timeline on how we reached this point.

January 15, 2011Lebanon and Tunisia Fall

The dominoes are falling. Can Jordan and Egypt be far behind? Even Saudi Arabia is not immune. The inmates are taking over the asylum. Hezbollah rules Lebanon. Hamas rules Gaza and is poised to take over the failed West Bank Palestinian Authority . Egypt is terrified of the Muslim Brotherhood. Turkey, Iran and Syria are rising to control all of Islam. They are willing to sacrifice the Arab Muslims for the advance of Islam.

February 1, 2011  – The Heart of Egypt Will Melt with Fear

Egypt has entered meltdown. It cannot be reversed. There are certain prophetic events which when once started will follow through to their inevitable end. Jesus spoke of the events in play at His Second Coming as similar to the birth pangs of childbirth. They have begun all over the earth, but especially in the Middle East. Only two weeks ago I wrote of dominoes falling. Little did I know in my intellect what was about to break out in Egypt. It is always about hatred of God at the bottom line. It will come back against Israel. Satan needs Egypt in his big Psalm 83 push against Israel. Their peace treaty must be broken to prepare for the destined Psalm 83 war. Yet the plans of man and devil will melt away before the presence of Yehovah.

February 19, 2011The Muslim Caliphate and The Psalm 83 War: The Domino Theory Ends Here

We are now seeing the dominoes falling at a dizzying pace. Where will it lead? Where will it stop? The final result will be the resurrection of the Islamic Caliphate. The entire Islamic Empire will be revived from Indonesia to Morocco, and from Turkey and the “stans” to the Sudan and Somalia. This will transpire in just a few years.

Radical Islam is above all else a spiritual movement. By this I mean that it is a political ideology on steroids. If Communism was not godless it may have conquered the world. Ideas are not enough. But ideas with fanatical allegiance to an apocalyptic deity will indeed threaten the entire world.

July 3, 2011Radicals Rising Leads to Sunset Over Cairo

Entire generations of young Muslims have been taught from pre-school to hate and kill Jews and Christians. That is when they were radicalized, not between weeks four and five of the Egyptian revolution (or fill in any other Muslim revolt). Koranic basic doctrine teaches that chaos and destruction are the means of overthrowing the infidels or as in Egypt’s case, the apostate Westernized Muslim states. The fundamental Islamic prophecy of the last days requires chaos and destruction to usher in the final Caliph and conquest of the whole world.

May 18, 2011Democracy Egyptian Style (Dry Bones Cartoon)

May 29, 2012Egypt Descends

Three weeks from now Egypt will elect the Muslim Brotherhood candidate for President. This completes the descent of Egypt from a functional member of the international community of nations to a pariah nation lined up for the Biblical prophecy fulfillment of Psalm 83. They will participate in that regional war in which Israel expands from the river of Egypt (the Nile) to the great river Euphrates in northeastern Syria.

The above quotations are from my Elisha Vision Commentary over the last 18 months. How amazing to see it all coming together just as God revealed it in Scripture.

Lovers of Death

9 06 2012

For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from Yehovah; But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death. Proverbs 8:35-36

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10

What a contrast between life and death is presented in the Bible. Could there be real people today who hate God so much that they love death? The answer, sadly, is yes. My point is clearly made by Hamas, in the Gaza Strip. Hamas speaks for all fundamentalist Islam in the following quote from Hamas leader, Fathi Hammad, in this speech:

“The enemies of All-h do not know that the Palestinian people has developed its methods of death and death-seeking. For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry, at which women excel, and so do all the people living on this land. The elderly excel at this, and so do the mujahideen and the children. This is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen, in order to challenge the Zionist bombing machine. It is as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: “We desire death like you desire life.” (Click for video)

This is the product of the Hamas culture of death. It is the opposite of the heart of the God of Israel.

For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Therefore turn and live!”  Ezekiel 18:32

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, that you and your descendants might live! that you may love Yehovah your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which Yehovah swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.  Deuteronomy 30:19-20

LOVE LIFE!

Jordan, Part 2 Follow-up

21 04 2012

My last post gave my reasons for Jordan teetering on the brink of its own Arab Spring. Another factor has come to light that needs understanding. Recently, an Imam in Jordan gave a militant mosque talk calling for the defeat of Jerusalem. This is the same mantra used in the other Arab revolutions of the past year.

Jordan’s army will destroy Israel and regain Jerusalem from the “killers of prophets” – that was the message a Jordanian cleric delivered in a Friday sermon on state TV, according to recently released video footage. (video and story, Jerusalem Post).

“The [Jordanian] army is invincible. Its units are filled with people who pray, with imams, and with people who memorized the Koran. This army will never be defeated, Allah willing,” Imam Ghaleb Rabab’a said in footage translated and released late last week by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The danger of this call is that it directly contradicts the peace treaty between Jordan and Israel. This is a classic case of an irresistible force and an immovable object. Something has to give. These radical Muslim voices are effectively forming a shadow government in Jordan declaring the opposite course of the monarchy.

The Wall Street Journal published an expose’ on February 22, 2012: The Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan For the first time in decades, activists openly seek to end the monarchy.

All of these developments point to the inevitable clash coming soon in Jordan. The culture of hatred spawned by pagan Islam has set the Middle East on fire. It is a fire that is not easily quenched. It permeates the very fabric of Arab Muslim culture. In the Palestinian Authority it is against the law to sell property to a Jew punishable by death! Since its inception in 1993 and its coming to power in 1995, the Palestinian Authority has maintained old Jordanian laws that made it a capital offense to sell property to Jews. (israel today Magazine)

Pray the prayer of Psalm 83:

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: Psalm 83:1-5

Fort Hood Double Standard

27 03 2012

It has been two and  a half years after the Fort Hood murders of 14 US soldiers and civilians (including a baby in its mother’s womb), and the wounding of 29 in Killeen, Texas. There has been no trial and they are still trying to decide if Major Hasan is sane. Meanwhile, a couple of weeks ago, a US solider snapped in the Afghanistan war zone killing 17 civilians and he is charged with the death penalty. This weekend our government has already paid $50,000.00 for each death which fulfills the requirement of Sharia Law.

What is wrong with this picture? The Muslim psychiatrist in Texas openly called for jihad against America and shouted A–ah Akbar as he systematically shot and killed unarmed people. Meanwhile, Sgt Bales who had a brain injury suffered in earlier combat has been tried, convicted and sentenced by the media in only weeks.

Make no mistake, I am not defending the actions of Sgt. Bales. But where is the justice in comparing the two situations? Isaiah 59 is quite to the point. The whole chapter is good, but here are a few selected quotes.

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity. No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. (3-4).

Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.Then Yehovah saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; (14-16).

According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay. So shall they fear the name of Yehovah from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of Yehovah will lift up a standard against him. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” says Yehovah. (18-20).

French Gunman

22 03 2012

(Disclaimer: Please recognize that I am attempting satire with this post to expose the ridiculous lengths the media will go to, trying to avoid any mention of radical Islam.)

Oh my! What a racist and sexist headline. Everyone knows it was a “European Citizen of the World Person” who gunned down three Jewish children and a Rabbi in France last Monday. Can you believe they actually included his gender and nationality in the news? Scandalous! (Later we find that he was of “Algerian descent”, and, oh by the way, he identified himself as part of al-Qaeda.) Now we must have years of analysis to discover his motive. Whatever could have possibly brought a decent 23-year-old Muslim al-Qaeda operative from the suburbs to randomly murder four people who co-incidentally just happened to be Jewish when he attacked a school that just randomly turns out to be a Jewish school. Why could he have done this? He must have had a troubled childhood, maybe he was bullied in school.

OK. Enough! Seriously folks, we face a serious media bias with radical Muslim anti-Semitic anti-Zionist terrorist murderers. But most media reporters just can’t get their finger to hunt and peck out those words on their keyboard. At least there were a few with courage.Consider this quote from Melanie Phillips:

And even when the perpetrator turned out to be an Islamic terrorist the media were still trying to spin it away, with Sky News stressing the deprivation of the killer and his family and interviewing a French female journalist living in London who claimed that this was ‘an attack against diversity’. (Jewish World Review)

Another problem is selective prosecutions. An example occurred recently at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Jewish fraternity members had their tires slashed and Nazi swastikas keyed into their cars. However, the authorities are investigating it as vandalism, not as a hate crime.

Also, Christians are now being attacked in many parts of the world. Consider this headline:Destroy All Churches and the first paragraph:

Is it not news when Saudi Arabia’s leading religious authority meets with a terrorist group and says that? 

Again I say, it is time to wake up, stand up and speak up! This is not a time to slumber. The world is on fire. Be a watchman on the wall. Sound the shofar!

I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. John 9:4.

No Other Gods!

21 02 2012

Most Christians and Jews completely understand and respect the first commandment to have “no other gods” before Yehovah. Yet, many in the Western nations, including America, have opened up their thinking to other gods in the name of tolerance. This makes me want to ask, “What part of ‘no other gods’ don’t you get?”

It is only recently that I have found a more specific prohibition on the subject. You may have noticed by now that I refuse to say or write the name of the god of Islam. It is because the Bible prohibits it! What if we in America or at least believers were to obey the following four scriptures? Notice how the Holy Spirit progressively adds another component to the prohibition with each verse.

Here is the prohibition repeated in FOUR SCRIPTURES!

First, in Exodus: And in all that I have said to you, be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth   (Exodus 23:13).

Then, secondly, Joshua adds three more conditions.

You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, but you shall hold fast to Yehovah your God, as you have done to this day  (Joshua 23:7).

The way a person converts to Islam is by standing in a public place and swearing allegiance to the god of Islam and his messenger, Mohammed. The next step is to serve that god and bow down to it. You have seen many examples of Muslims doing that even in public five times a day. I am ashamed to say that (in April 2009) in a widely publicized picture, President Obama, who professes Christianity, bowed down 90 degrees from the waist to the King of Saudi Arabia, who is the religious custodian/keeper of Mecca.

The third scripture introduces another aspect, blood,  which especially applies to Islam. This blood thirsty death cult delights in the shedding of blood in the name of their god. Hence, we hear the perverse oath proclaimed by every suicide bomber before detonation, that his god is the greatest.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take up their names on my lips   (Psalm 16:4).

Fourth, Hosea adds a final point. Not only will we not speak their names, but eventually their names will not even be remembered.

For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more   (Hosea 2:17).

Psalm 83:4 highlights an amazing contrast: They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”  Satan does not have an original creative thought in his head. He can only twist and pervert what God says or does. So his plan to remove the remembrance of Israel is nothing more than a copycat idea from the truth that satan and all his false gods face in eternity.

 Now therefore, fear Yehovah, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve Yehovah!    (Joshua 24:14)

(Today’s post is an excerpt from my book Generation LIGHT, Chapter 10: Islam, Candles Are For Dark Places. We note that Jesus died for the whole world and some from every tribe and nation and language are included in His forever family.)

The Right to be a Human Shield

19 01 2012

Look closely at this cartoon by Dana Summers of the Orlando Sentinel. Notice the terrorist hiding under the burka of the woman. This is an accurate caricature of the actual policy of Hamas in Gaza as well as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria. You can also see it throughout the Muslim world from Egypt to Iran and Pakistan. Muslim terrorists take human shields to a whole new level. There have even been multiple instances of men homicide bombers dressing in burkas to get through checkpoints.

In this country, we worry that gasoline may reach five dollars a gallon. In Muslim lands under Sharia Law, people fear for their lives. Women have virtually no rights or freedoms. My commentary today titled: The Right to be a Human Shield, is because I want to highlight the plight of women in those countries. A second point cries out, however. Where are the feminists speaking out about this women’s rights issue? Liberals and this Administration attack Israel for building houses in their capital city, but are silent about life and death women’s issues in Hamas ruled Gaza and other Muslim areas.

God speaks clearly His judgment of such wickedness:

And I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness Against sorcerers, Against adulterers, Against perjurers, Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, And against those who turn away an alien–Because they do not fear Me,” Says Yehovah of hosts. Malachi 3:5

This is such a contrast with the Christian view:

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27

Pray for the salvation of many in Islam, that they may see Jesus as the Son of God.

Israeli Jericho Missiles Moving

28 11 2011

Eyewitnesses report unusual movements of Israeli Jericho missiles according to World Net Daily’s Aaron Klein: Multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing Israeli military trucks in recent days transport and station large missiles at the periphery of Jerusalem and in locations inside the West Bank. The descriptions of the projectiles are consistent with the Jewish state’s mid-to-long range Jericho ballistic missiles.

Here are know facts about the Jericho III from Wikipedia: The Jericho III is believed to have a three-stage solid propellant and a payload of 1,000 to 1,300 kg. It is possible for the missile to be equipped with a single 750 kg nuclear warhead or two or three low yield MIRVwarheads…the Jericho III gives Israel nuclear strike capabilities within the entire Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and almost all parts of North America, as well as within large parts of South America and North Oceania.

MissileThreat.com reports: The range of the Jericho 3 also provides an extremely high impact speed for nearby targets, enabling it to avoid any Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) defenses that may develop in the immediate region. This would be most valuable in the event of a first-strike from Iran or as defense against Iranian retaliation to an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Israel pre-positioning these arms would be another indication of an imminent hot war.

This is only one of today’s (11-28-11) alarming headlines. The following list provides a simple exercise connecting the dots, with links to the full stories.

Egypt’s election today dominated my Islamists.

Kuwait’s government collapses.

Morocco Islamists win election.

Warships gather off Syria.

Blast in Iran today.

Four Katyusha Rockets hit Galilee today!

And, by the way, Putin is back in Russia.

When I was a boy it was big news in our church if someone reported a prophecy fulfilled in the last year or two. When we started our Issachar Forum Prophetic Think Tank eight years ago, we soon found so many prophesies fulfilled it was hard to get them all into our weekly meeting. Now, what I have listed above, is just today!

When Jesus was asked in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 what would be the signs of His return and the end of the age, he answered the question. All of the things He predicted have happened in my lifetime. The most time specific was His prediction of first the downfall of Jerusalem (fulfilled in 70 AD) and then the restoration of Jerusalem in 1967. Gentiles indeed ruled or “trampled down” Jerusalem from 70 to 1967. Jesus then declared the most astonishing part:

When you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Luke 21:31-33

This passage (along with Psalm 102) is one of the main reasons I wrote Generation LAST. The actual length of a generation is debatable, but how ever long it is, we are surely in the last generation now. Look up, Jesus is coming soon!

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM. Shalu Shalom Yerushalayim.

From Tunisia to Jerusalem

19 11 2011

Daily reports are flooding the Internet detailing the rapid expansion of Islamist goals in all areas of the Arab Spring. As the Muslim Brotherhood assumes power in state after state, two clear goals emerge. One is to impose Sharia law on all citizens. Number two is to “liberate” Jerusalem.

Reports from BBC sources in Tunisia tell of an agreement to name Hammadi Jebali as the new Prime Minister of Tunisia. Just last Sunday at a huge stadium rally he publicly declared: “The liberation of Tunisia will, God willing, bring about the liberation of Jerusalem.” Jebali declared that the occasion was “a divine moment in a new state, and in, hopefully, a 6th caliphate,” referring to the historical system of Islamic monarchies. (The video with English subtitles is available at MEMRI here.)

Hamas Speaks in Tunisia Here is the quote from Tunisia Live: Tunisian Islamist party Ennahda invited Houda Naïm, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council based in Gaza, to speak at a rally in Sousse, a coastal Tunisian city, this past Sunday. The event marked the first time in known memory a member of Hamas has addressed the Tunisian public.

Both speakers at the rally called for the liberation of Jerusalem. This obsession with Jerusalem brings to mind the clear scriptural promise of the God of Israel. The Bible describes this obsession with Jerusalem as “drunkenness”:

The burden of the word of Yehovah against Israel. Thus says Yehovah, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. Zechariah 12:1-3

Yehovah also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But Yehovah will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Joel 3:16

And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of Yehovah shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as Yehovah has said, among the remnant whom Yehovah calls. Joel 2:32

It is happening so fast! Please continue to watch and pray for the shalom of Jerusalem that only comes from the Prince of Shalom, Jesus Messiah of Israel.

45 Rockets Hit Israel in 3 Days

31 10 2011

What if the headline and story was like this, instead?

45 Rockets Hit El Paso in 3 DaysRockets fired from Juarez, Mexico land across the river in El Paso Texas with a father of four killed. Drug cartel takes credit. UN, EU and Russia demand the US pull out of El Paso and give up the city  to Mexico as a gesture of peace.

The real story was in Israel, of course, over the past weekend. But what if that scenario broke out on our Mexican border? How would our government respond? It is less clear than in the past. We should put ourselves in Israel’s shoes more often to get a grip on the real human suffering. Civilians die and are wounded, simply because they are Jews. Children and adults suffer trauma more serious than the physical wounds. Israel must stand up to the threat despite international condemnation. In the end Israel will stand alone, especially if the US Administration continues its anti-Israel pressures.

There is some good news however. UNESCO this week voted to admit “Palestine” as a full member. This is ridiculous on the face, simply because there is no country called Palestine. But the good news is that the US State Department is following US Law and de-funding UNESCO at $60 Million, 22% of its budget. Meanwhile, the UN Security Council is now scheduled to vote on Palestinian statehood on November 11. However, they may not have the votes they need. Biblical Zionists need to fervently pray defeat of this new attempt to divide God’s Land.

This is how it looks from Heaven’s viewpoint.

Let all the earth fear Yehovah;​ ​Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. ​​For He spoke, and it was done; ​​He commanded, and it stood fast. ​​Yehovah brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; ​​He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. ​​The counsel of Yehovah stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. ​​Blessed is the nation whose God is Yehovah, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:8-12

Arab Winter Begins

27 10 2011

Many conservative commentators and most Biblical prophetic writers warned for months that the Arab Spring was destined to freeze over, becoming an Islamic Winter. It has begun. In each case in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria, the result is worse conditions and more Sharia law imposed. Helpless citizens watch their democratic hopes go up in smoke.

The Tunisian election last weekend brought radicals to power. Libya’s provisional government announced it would base the new regime on Sharia. Egypt’s elections next month are predicted to choose Muslim Brotherhood related groups. And so it goes. 100,000 Egyptian Christians have fled the country in just the last few months. They are escaping murder, rape, beatings and church burnings. The military used to protect them and arrest Muslim attackers, but now stand back and give tacit approval, which encourages expanded mayhem. Some military troops even take part.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.Amos 9:13

This passage in Amos refers to Israel’s restoration, after their scattering to all nations that lasted nearly 2,000 years. However, I see in the phrase: “the plowman overtakes the reaper” a commentary on the Arab Spring. Before the expected democratic “fruit” could be seen, it was plowed under by the radical Muslim mobs. I spoke of this a few weeks ago, but it bears repeating.

Psalm 83 war preparations are accelerating. For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. ​​They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. Verses 2 and 3 describe the “tumult” of the violent protests and identifies the real target of their hatred is God Himself. Since they can’t reach God, they attack His people as a way to attack Yehovah God.

As the enemies of God accelerate their plans, let us accelerate our prophetic intercession. We will pray for Israel and stand for Israel because God is fulfilling His ancient covenant promises now, in our day! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem to come in the form of the Prince of Peace, Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus, Son of God.

Egypt Erupts Again

10 10 2011

Egyptian mobs clashed with Christians today in day three of new anti-Christian riots. Dozens are dead with hundreds injured. It is time to conclude that the Egyptian Arab Spring has not led to freedom of religion and speech for Egypt’s ten million Christians. The opposite is evidenced by a downward spiral of violence (ABC video link) led by the real new freedom of Muslim fanatics. The army not only does not restrain, but often encourages this new “liberty” for sectarian violence.

The deadly clashes between Egypt’s Copt minority and security forces further stress what should have been clear for a while now: America’s insistence on President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster helped create a catastrophe, with Israel’s southern neighbor increasingly descending into the throes of chaos. (from Ynetnews.com article: Paying the Obama Price by Yigal Walt)

Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood waits in the wings for the November 28 elections when they will likely assume rule over all of Egypt. Israel’s Embassy in Cairo has closed twice in as many months due to mob violence. The gas pipeline from Egypt to Israel and Jordan was bombed six times this year leading to much higher gas prices for Israel. Add increased Egyptian troops in Sinai after the terrorist attack into Israel, and you have clear escalation of tensions. Even more menacing reports detail sophisticated weapons now flowing freely from Libya through Egypt to Hamas in Gaza.

So how does this relate to Bible prophecy? This is another step toward the impending Psalm 83 War. The Palestinian flag is waving over more demonstrations around the world. Lebanon has fallen to radical Hezbollah. Syria is teetering on the brink and Saudi Arabia is now facing unrest from Shiites in the northeast. Even Jordan is threatened. Events are happening so fast that the following scripture is fulfilled before our eyes.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.Amos 9:13

This passage in Amos refers to the restoration of Israel after their scattering to all nations that lasted nearly 2,000 years. However, I see in the phrase: “the plowman overtakes the reaper” a commentary on the Arab Spring. Before the expected democratic “fruit” could be seen, it was plowed under by the radical Muslim mobs. Yet, in Israel there is much fruit harvested to the ultimate glory of Yehovah God and to His Son, Jesus; Yeshua ben Yehovah.

As we celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles this week, we not only look back to the tabernacle of Moses in the wilderness. We joyfully look ahead to that glorious day when our holy God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will tabernacle with the redeemed for all eternity. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

UN Dance of Futility

24 09 2011

You start with 57 Muslim nations voting on any issue against one Jewish nation. Add to that the nations intimidated by Islam. No wonder, as Israeli PM Netanyahu pointed out in his UN address yesterday, Israel is always disproportionately condemned. “And it’s here, year after year that Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation. It’s singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined. Twenty-one out of the 27 General Assembly resolutions condemn Israel – the one true democracy in the Middle East.”

Allow me to clarify the issue highlighting key words. First, Chairman Abbas spoke for the Palestinian Authority demanding unilateral recognition as a state without negotiations. The standard he has always maintained for negotiations involved preconditions to which Israel must agree that threaten the very existence of Israel. Netanyahu offered to meet immediately right there in New York with no preconditions.

Later in the day, the Quartet (UN, US, EU and Russia) called for negotiations to resume in one month with no preconditions. Today, the PA has already rejected the Quartet’s plan, demanding the same preconditions. Yet, remarkably, Israel continued to be singled out by the world for being responsible for the failed peace talks.

Folks, this is not that complicated. The bottom line is clear. Israel wants peace. The PA wants Israel to cease to exist. That is the reason nothing Israel gives up for peace is ever enough. Benjamin Netanyahu once famously stated: “if the Arabs lay down their arms there will be no more war, but if Israel lays down its weapons there would be no more Israel.

Yesterday Netanyahu gave a stark reminder of the threat. “Israel’s small dimensions create huge security problems. America can be crossed by jet airplane in six hours. To fly across Israel, it takes three minutes. So is Israel’s tiny airspace to be chopped in half and given to a Palestinian state not at peace with Israel?”

The following scripture sums up it quite well.

Praise God, all you people of Israel; praise Yehovah, the source of Israel’s life. Look, the little tribe of Benjamin leads the way. Then comes a great throng of rulers from Judah and all the rulers of Zebulun and Naphtali. Summon your might, O God. Display your power, O God, as you have in the past. The kings of the earth are bringing tribute to your Temple in Jerusalem. Rebuke these enemy nations—these wild animals lurking in the reeds, this herd of bulls among the weaker calves. Make them bring bars of silver in humble tribute. Scatter the nations that delight in war. Let Egypt come with gifts of precious metals; let Ethiopia bow in submission to God. Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth. Sing praises to the Lord. Psalms 68:26-32

Syrian Snipers and Turks in Cairo

13 09 2011

The New Middle East

The winds of radical change are blowing over the cradle of civilization. Almost daily some new event adds to the reshaping of old loyalties. Egypt has fallen from the Western sphere and is quickly descending into ancient barbaric blood lust. Twice in as many weeks, radicals have attacked the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. Today, the Prime Minister of Turkey is in Cairo extending his influence, attempting to re-establish a world-wide Islamic Caliphate. This, only days after announcing that Turkish warships will guard the next Flotilla to Gaza. He is seeking to intimidate Israel and Cyprus who lay claim to massive new natural gas deposits offshore in the Mediterranean.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo on Tuesday that the recognition of a Palestinian state was “not an option but an obligation.”

Meanwhile, also today, Syrian snipers killed five mourners at a funeral near Hama. The five were shot dead by security police snipers from the rooftop of a public school and a municipal water tank in the town of Kfar Nubouzeh, when hundreds of mourners began chanting slogans demanding the downfall of President Bashar Assad. Such is the perverse concept of “security” in the Islamic dictatorship. This utter disregard for the sanctity of life is endemic in Islam. It is a well know boast in Islam that they will defeat Israel (the little satan) and America ( the great satan) because “you love life, the Muslim loves death.”

In 2007, two years before he killed thirteen people and wounded twenty-nine at Fort Hood, Texas, Nidal Malik Hasan prepared a slide show for his fellow Army doctors on the subject of Islam. One of his last points read: “We love death more than you love life!”

There are also plans to attack the Israeli Embassy in Jordan according to Fox News. Many times I have warned that the Psalm 83 War is close. Each new event makes it that much more inevitable. There are even those calling for a million man march in Aman. Ezekiel warned of an “eternal hatred” against Israel. God has declared that it will lead to a bloodbath for Edom (Jordan hanging by a thread). It has begun. It will culminate with a terrible defeat for the nations immediately around, and a great victory for Israel by the hand of Yehovah God.

Your eternal hatred for the people of Israel led you to butcher them when they were helpless, when I had already punished them for all their sins. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Yehovah, since you show no distaste for blood, I will give you a bloodbath of your own. Your turn has come! Ezekiel 35:5-6 NLT

So what does this mean for us? Should we be fearful? God forbid! It is time for us to snatch people from the burning and bring them to the One Who is Salvation, Yeshua (Jesus means salvation). It is time for us to wake up, stand up and speak up! Our Lord said he would not leave us or forsake us. We may suffer, but He will be with us in the process. Jesus spoke of these things in Luke 21 with the admonition:

But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 NASB

Beware the Leaven

2 08 2011

Then He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” Mark 8:15

Two types of leaven are referenced by Jesus in this verse: leaven of Pharisees and leaven of Herod. We know the implication. Leaven is a yeast that spreads throughout the dough so it will rise when baked. But of what is Jesus warning us?

For years I have made the case that Communism failed to dominate the world because of one critical strategic mistake. Based on atheistic humanism, it had no spiritual component. Yes it was demonic in its character and goals, but it was not inherently spiritual at its core.

On the other hand, Islam is spiritual at its core. But Jesus said to watch out for two kinds of leaven. The leaven of the Pharisees is a “religious spirit.” They go about trying to establish their own righteousness, according to the apostle Paul. It also infects modern Christians, who try to earn salvation rather than receiving it as a totally free gift of God. There is a seduction to the idea that you must do something to qualify for it. This is the religious spirit. (Jesus further defines it as the traditions or doctrines of men and as hypocrisy. See quotes at the end of this commentary).

The leaven of Herod speaks of the other kind of leaven. It is a “political spirit.” Herod was the archetypical political animal. He double crossed, connived and deceived. He played both side against the middle. Jesus called him “that fox”. Herod reminds us of today’s politics in Washington, DC.

The debt ceiling crisis we have all just witnessed, was pure politics (an interesting oxymoron). Yet, there is a greater threat rapidly rising in this nation and the world. It is militant Islam. One main reason Islam is so powerful is that it combines the two leavens. Islam is both a religious spirit and a political spirit. Communism had only the political, but Islam has both. The lust for world conquest is not only in the core of sinful man, it is fueled and energized by the passionate religion of death. The true believers are actually convinced that salvation comes by blowing up infidels, Christians and Jews and yourself in the process. These are Muslims who are faithful to the Koran and other writings, who follow WWMD: What would Mohammed do?

How opposite is the motive from Jesus and Christians who follow WWJD: What would Jesus do? Jihadists die to save themselves. Jesus died so that we could live! Pray that Muslims all over the world will discover this great salvation offered through Jesus the true Messiah and Son of God, Yehovah. His Hebrew name is Yeshua ben Yehovah. He came because God loves the whole world. Yet, it is not automatic, one must receive Jesus as Who He is.

Pray for Muslims to be set free from that evil religious spirit of earning salvation. Also pray that they be released from the political spirit of pride and greed and arrogance driving them to conquer the earth in the name of their false god.

Pray for the Church to see the folly of religious hypocrisy and repent for political methods.

Beware the leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod!

In the meantime, when an innumerable multitude of people had gathered together, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Luke 12:1

Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Matthew 16:12

Caliphate Coming

29 07 2011

Breaking News Today: Huge news today with the announcement of the “retirement” of General Isik Kosaner, the head of Turkey’s military. The three generals over Turkey’s ground, naval and air forces also “resigned”. This pretty much completed the total takeover of Turkey by Islamists.

The slide towards an Islamic theocracy has accelerated sharply in recent months with this news signaling a total plunge. The seismic advance of Islam threatens the  NATO alliance for all of Europe. Just a few short years ago everyone was wondering if Turkey would be admitted to the European Union. Perhaps the question is will the EU be admitted to the Islamic Caliphate?

The last Caliphate ended when Turkey turned to secularism in the 1920’s at the end of the Ottoman Empire. Yet the Koran predicts the rise of an end time Caliph to rule over a revived world-wide Islamic empire. This now appears more probable and imminent.

We have been warning for some time of a regional war based on Psalm 83. We have also reminded you of Ezekiel 38 which speaks of Gog and Magog War. It is important to notice the sequence of these two separate wars. The countries listed in Psalm 83 correspond to the modern countries with borders next to Israel. However, none of these are mentioned in the list of countries in the Ezekiel 38 War. Why not? Perhaps the answer is a decisive victory by Israel in the Psalm 83 War extending Israel’s borders to the Genesis 15 definition: On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates. Genesis 15:18.

Stay tuned and keep praying!

Anthony Weiner’s Wife

21 06 2011

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them. Ephesians 5:10-13 NLT

I will not comment on the sins of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The text above is enough said. However, in our sympathy for his new bride expecting their first baby, something has come to light that is not about immorality, but ideology. Walid Shoebat, a Christian ex-Muslim, has just reported that Huma Abedin, the offended wife, is more than simply the loyal “right hand woman of Hillary Clinton”. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she was educated in Jedda, Saudi Arabia from age two to eighteen. Her father was an Islamic scholar of Indian descent while her mother is originally from Pakistan.

The plot thickens with the revelation that her mother is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia, according to Arabic news sources cited by a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative. Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim Brotherhood activist in the Holy Land, translated sources that say Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor of sociology in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, belongs to the Sunni movement’s women’s division known as the Muslim Sisterhood. One of the Sisterhoods aims, reportedly, is “to spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes.”

1967 Lies

19 05 2011

Yes, I said 1967 lies, not 1967 lines. President Obama today totally and shamelessly moved the United States of America into direct violation of Joel 3:2, the consequences of which will bring fearful calamities on America. I am not making this up. He proclaimed this seismic shift in US policy, at a time when this nation has suffered six weeks of continuous tragedies already, including two rounds of killer tornadoes, fires in Texas and now flooding in the Mississippi River and delta. I use the word seismic with great trepidation since earthquake is the one natural disaster we have not seen. To quote Thomas Jefferson, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.

Let’s look deeper into Joel 3:2. I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.

First, note that the historical timing of this event is clear from verse one; it is after God has regathered Israel from all the nations into their own land. The reason for the prophesied judgment of God is simple. The nations have divided His land.

Israel is now 45 miles wide; the entire country is only 45 miles wide! Reverting to the 1967 pre-war borders would make Israel 8 (EIGHT!) miles wide. What is wrong with this picture? President Obama has agreed to the Palestinian pre-condition demanded by Yassar Arafat. This division of the land would assure Israel’s destruction by the growing menace of radical Islam surrounding them. With friends like President Obama, who needs enemies?

Abbas, leader of the West Bank Palestinian Authority, wrote a New York Times Op-Ed wherein he rewrote history. He openly lied about history claiming that Israel attacked the Arabs in 1948, when the facts are utterly clear from recorded history. The UN voted Israel as a nation one day and the next day seven Arab armies invaded Israel to drive her into the sea. Three of those nations are still in a state of war with Israel since that time. Egypt and Jordan, who later made treaties, are about to break them.

The world is also rewriting the history of 1967. Again, Israel was drawn into war by invading armies. When the dust settled, Israel had a miraculous victory and control of more land (Gaza, West Bank, the Sinai and the Golan Heights). President Obama thinks it is a good idea for Israel to give it all back so they can try again. Either way, there will be war. Obama’s speech simply moves up the timing.

Helen Thomas was wrong. The Jews will not “go back where they came from.” There is no other place for them. Israel is their land and they are there to stay,  not by UN permission, but by the authority of Almighty Yehovah God and His unbreakable promise.

(Dear reader, I have included the following text as evidence of God’s purpose This prophecy was spoken by God to the Land itself! This was the theme of my first book, Prophesy To The Land!)

“And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel, and say, ‘O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Yehovah! Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because the enemy has said of you, ‘Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession,’ therefore prophesy, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people”— therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Yehovah! Thus says the Lord Yehovah to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the nations all around— therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country.’

 “Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.” Therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings.Then you shall know that I am Yehovah.Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.”

 ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because they say to you, ‘You devour men and bereave your nation of children,’ therefore you shall devour men no more, nor bereave your nation anymore,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Nor will I let you hear the taunts of the nations anymore, nor bear the reproach of the peoples anymore, nor shall you cause your nation to stumble anymore,” says the Lord Yehovah.’ ” Ezekiel 36:1-15.





Israel/Egypt Treaty Jeopardy

1 05 2011

Israel E-Card Volume 5 Issue 9

Topic #1  Egyptians Oppose Israel Peace

The Pew Poll of Egyptians released last week revealed some hard facts for the naïve Western leftist media. Most were rejoicing for the “Arab Spring” destined to bring freedom and democracy to the Middle East. They were dead wrong. 54% of Egyptians from all levels of society and whether secular or religious, desire to annul the treaty with Israel. Only 36% choose to maintain it. The poll deserves a deeper look than can fit in this space, but a few highlights jump out.

Another result has 75% favorable toward the Muslim Brotherhood. September’s election will bring their ideology into the core of Egyptian policy. They don’t have to win, they have already won. Any candidate from any party will have to appeal to that overwhelming sentiment of the voters. President Bush forced an election in Gaza, convinced that the people would vote for moderates. Hamas was elected by 70% of the vote.

A third question asked how strictly Egypt’s laws should follow the Koran. 27% were for the principles of Islam, 62% were for strict adherence to Sharia Law. That is 89% lining up for a theocracy! Wake up and smell the Turkish coffee.

Topic #2  Obama in Middle East Polls?

Israeli polls the last two years show President Obama in single digits of 6 in 2009 and 9 in 2010. Most Israeli’s consider him pro-Palestinian. George W. Bush had 88% favorable! Just as surprising are Obama’s numbers in the Egypt Pew poll. 52% disagree with his handling of the recent protests.     What does this mean? Cairo, Egypt was the setting for one of his milestone speeches trying to woo the Muslim world. This may have had the effect of encouraging calls for an open democracy, but the result is anything but. President Obama repeated his mantra that we are not at war with Islam and never will be. Yet, we are in three shooting wars, and the ones we are shooting at, are Muslims. 99% of all the terrorists and pirates are Muslims. If this isn’t war, what does war look like?

This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, ‘All is peaceful’ when there is no peace at all! It’s as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash! Ezekiel 13:10
