This week, Israel is 70 years old, and the hatred against her grows worse and worse, and the lies grow even faster. So, as someone who knows Israel from the inside out, I am committed to bringing you the truth to help neutralize those lies and that hatred – lies and hatred that will do great damage to your soul and even… your life.
And yes, I know the truth.
I know the history, the language and the people. I lived there for 15 of my 23 years in Asia. More importantly, I know the Bible and God’s plans for that tiny patch of land.
Karen J sent an email, asking me to talk about Zionism. Then others challenged me on other issues about Israel. So, I find myself – yet again – addressing the most important patch of land in the world.
And, it is vital that you get this.
Jesus spoke of Jerusalem – also known as Zion – as a key identifier of the Last Days. The prophets of the Old Testament who are the biggest source of information on the Last Days, also write about the physical land of Israel being key to the Last Days.
Yet, there are so many lies being told about Israel, that I am forced at least once a year to dispel the lies being told about a place that I lived in for 15 years.
These are the Last Days. This wasn’t hard for you to figure out, especially after last week’s article. But, there is something about this time that still boggles my mind, as I’m sure that it does yours.
We knew that sin would rise. That’s an easy one to figure out. We all know about sin, since we struggle with it every single day.
I’m seeing it grow everywhere, and its voice is louder than ever. And, I find myself amazed.
WHY is there so much HATRED?
My heart is grieved at the amount of hatred and the lies that so many embrace willingly to fuel that hatred.
The events of this day and age, force us to contemplate evil. It is everywhere and seeks for a foothold in our hearts. It encroaches on our lives and the lives of those that we love. And, it seems to have exploded onto the world with a ferocity unseen for thousands of years.
There has been no time in human history, as evil as the time in which we live. The only eras that might compare to it were the days of Noah, as well as Sodom and Gomorrah.
But, why now?
What allowed us to become so evil?
Part of the answer is in the title of this piece, and it bears thinking about. Deeply.
There appears to be no country on Earth more reviled than the Jewish State. To hear her detractors speak, you would think that she was responsible for every evil in the world, from crop failures in Zambia to smog in California.
The antisemitism has grown to a crescendo, and I find myself deafened by it. You must be as well, so I thought that I would lay out some of my own observations about Israel, having lived there for 15 years – and with family STILL living there.
Most important of all, Israel is the key to the prophecies of the days that we live in, the Last Days.
As the darkness closes in around us, it is natural for our thoughts to turn towards the prospect of a grim future. And, in the short-term, it IS grim. But, as John The Apostle contemplated these things, he embraced these events, for they pointed to the return of our God and King, Jesus Christ.
I must keep reminding myself of this, as I look upon the evil that is happening around us, and within us.
I am grateful to all who have chosen to make a stand for Christ. For the Truth. For Righteousness. For an eternity with God. It is a struggle, and it will take everything you have. But, it is worth far more than anything that we can give.
These are the days that will try your soul. We have crested the hill and now stare into the abyss. The question is whether you will surrender your will to the Lord and obey, in the midst of your anguish – or, whether you will choke and fail. Once the pain starts, it will be hard to choose.
So, choose now.
You will not make it through what is coming without the Lord and His Wisdom. The wisdom of man got you into this mess. It will take the Lord to get you out.
But, He will not ‘get you out’ if you do not choose to obey Him.
Chinese stock markets and inevitable defaults in Greece, Puerto Rico and Ukraine. Deadly drought in California and Central America. The death of the Pacific Ocean. The rise of ISIS. Empty Iranian promises. The explosion of hatred and ignorance. The arrival of Jade Helm 15.
All of that swept across my desk this week. In fact, the only bright spot was Russia – and THAT sent a shiver through me, because the coming of Gog and Magog lies just over the horizon.
Never – in over four thousand years – have we seen so many threats, all at once. And, the Bible tells us that there is worse to come.
The shackles of an electronic slavery have finally appeared. Our masters tell us that we will not notice them, and most of us probably won’t – until the day comes, when our most cherished freedoms have disappeared. This marks yet another step towards the awful coming of the Antichrist.
Other steps towards the coming of the Beast seem to be moving along quickly. Europe gangs up against Greece. ISIS rampages through Iraq and Syria. Tyranny and martial law beckon from their Jade Helms. China and Russia rise in the East. And, complete financial collapse continues to be utterly certain.
I continue to pray that you will be ready for this.
Waves of antisemitism have swept Europe, the Americas and the Middle East for centuries. This psychological defect has poisoned the minds of many and provided fertile ground for evil men and women who delight in oppressing the innocent.
Unfortunately, many in the alternative media have been captured by this ancient evil. Worse, this new wave of antisemitism has clouded clear thought and obscured the evil designs of the enemy.
Far worse than that, followers of Christ have allowed themselves to be turned away from what God says. The Bible clearly states that God has not forgotten the physical children of Jacob. God will bring Jacob back to Himself, and we risk the wrath of God – if we oppose what God is so clearly doing.
