And, those of us who understand that we are in the Last Days… well …we are very interested in how this period of time will unfold. After all, we are at the ground zero of history, and our personal survival is at stake.
More importantly, the Last Days will challenge our ability to serve God, and we want to do the best that we can, while we can – so that we will hear “Well Done”, when we stand before Jesus in the First Judgment.
With the horrifying events that are bearing down upon us, you desperately need to understand WHY Israel is at the center of it all. And, it is the center of it all.
Please understand that we are at the end of history. Everything that has gone before, has been leading up to this moment in time. Yes, the war was won 2000 years ago, but the fighting isn’t over. And, I was deeply impressed by a presentation given by a neighbor of mine, from Jerusalem.
This presentation illustrates THE POINT. And, you need to get that POINT, to navigate the events that we are about to experience.
We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.
That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.
So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.
We live in the Age of Deception – a fact that I’ve been repeating ad nauseam. And, I will keep repeating that, since this appears to be a truth that seems especially hard to accept. In fact, I repeat this as much for my own edification as yours.
The problem is that this deception has reached into our midst, and it’s poisoning our own ability to see the truth of what is happening around us. I am very distressed by this, since you are the target of this deception.
Satan wants YOU destroyed, and he has sown the seeds of your destruction in the hearts of many that you love and trust.
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.
Palestinian Muslims have been persecuting Christians from day one, and that persecution has driven out almost all the Christians from Bethlehem. Those that are left are a die-hard few that may be forced to leave – or die – as the persecution of Christians increases.
Yet, you will hear none of this in the mainstream media.
And, as this persecution reared its awful head, the leadership of Bethlehem begged Israel to take over. Israel wanted to help, but the world demanded that Israel step aside.
Islam has become a scourge upon the world, something that is easy to see in Bethlehem, the birthplace of our Lord and Savior.
The heat under the global pot is rapidly bringing us to a catastrophic boil. Russia is making allies in the Middle East. Little Greece is standing firm against EU pressure. Islam rears its ugly head. The American police state grips the US even more tightly. Oil is an even bigger problem than you may have realized. Our Muslim-in-Chief has set his sights on Israel.
And, all of this is bringing us closer and closer to a meeting that I’d rather avoid:
Gog and Magog
We are in more trouble than you can shake a stick at.
We rejoice that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was born more than two thousand years ago. But, it wasn’t His birth that we really celebrate.
No, it was His sacrifice for us.
We do not deserve it, but I’m not complaining. I’m just grateful that a foolish sinner like myself was chosen to be a child of God.
I know that there is some controversy over this day, but I believe that any time that we glorify God… well …it is a good thing. So, even those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, at least join me in glorifying God.
Those of you reading your Bibles know that all the big showdowns happen at Jerusalem. The big battles, as well as big covenants happened there.
When it’s all over, Satan will have been defeated by God – three times at Jerusalem. Satan was defeated first, on the cross of our Lord – at Jerusalem. Satan will be defeated, when Jesus returns – at Jerusalem. And, Satan will be defeated a third and final time, at the very end of the Millennium – at Jerusalem.
And, two great covenants were made there. The covenant between Abraham’s children and God, was made – at Jerusalem. The covenant between ourselves and God, was made – at Jerusalem.
