  • Tha Names of The Arab Nations...Islam in Prophecy pt 4

    We have been looking at the considerable attention the Word of God gives to the origin and fate of the Arab people. Genesis, the foundational book of the Holy Bible, contains history and prophecies of both Ishmael and of Esau, their character and descendantÂ’s fate to the end days. In the rest of scripture, there is also great interest in the Arabs, and their progeny. These children of Abraham are major players in the drama that is the end of the world. The Hebrew prophets speak almost as much about the fate of the Arab nations as they do the...

    One of my favorite songs is “At the Midnight Cry”. Oftentimes I find myself singing it under my breath. I look around me, I see prophecies fulfilled. And the signs of the times they’re appearing everywhere. Yes, all I have to do is to turn on my computer, or open the pages of the paper. June 24, 2012. The Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi is declared the winner of Egypt’s presidential elections. This is the same fellow who a few weeks earlier had declared in campaign speeches that “the Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is...
  • Sons Of Ishmael- Islam In Prophecy pt 2

    We have been discussing recent events in the Arab world. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Jordan , Saudi Arabia, Dubai, among others are being shaken by massive, violent, popular demonstrations. Governments are falling, factions are being emboldened, and as in the late 1980’s in Eastern European Soviet ruled nations, fear of brutal leaders is dissolving. There are two things these Middle Eastern nations have in commo; they are Arabic, and they are majority Muslim, and in the midst of a revival of fundamentalist Islam. That is why the so-called “democratic” aspect of these upheavals is meaningless. As we have seen reently...

    The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.(Isaiah 24:9-11)We are currently witnessing an unraveling of the already fragile modern order of the Arab world.

"Baghdad welcomes all relations but rejects ties with Israel: Iraqi PM," from Al Arabiya, July 1 (thanks to Kenneth): Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said on Saturday that Baghdad does not discriminate against countries but said he rejected forming any ties with Israel.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was "at a bit of a loss" that a street was named after him in Bethlehem, revered by Christians as the birthplace of Jesus. Putin spoke in Jordan as he wrapped up his Middle East tour, which included a stop in Bethlehem in the West Bank and talks with Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas who ordered a street to be named after his guest. "I would like to live a bit longer," Putin quipped, referring to a European tradition according to which streets are named after the deceased.

    Visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin praised his Palestinian counterpart Tuesday for what he said was a “responsible” position in negotiations with Israel, frozen for nearly four years, and said Russia has no problem recognizing a Palestinian state. Mr. Putin also offered veiled criticism of Israel, saying unilateral actions — an apparent reference to continued Israeli settlement expansion on war-won land — is not constructive. Mr. Putin spoke at the end of a visit to the biblical West Bank town of Bethlehem, with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas by his side. Mr. Putin inaugurated a Russian cultural and language centre in Bethlehem...
  • The Doctrine of Balaam...Balaam pt 10

    Nevertheless I have a few things against you, for you have there those who hold to the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication… (Rev 2:14)By the end of the fourth ‘parable’ of Balaam, both he and Balak the king were fully aware of God’s purposes for Israel. The utter impossibility of using any kind of divination against Israel was now obvious to the badly shaken king and to the seer also – whose eyes God had opened. They would go...

    Egypt is a very significant player in the drama that is the end times scenario according to the prophets of the Bible. Egypt has recently been in the forefront of the world news as a result of the popular overthrow of the thirty-year Mubarak government. Many around the world have high hopes for Egypt, believing that good can come out of the Egyptian “democratic” revolution but with subsequent events, those hopes of an “Arab Spring” are fast fading. Egypt is already taking its new-found “freedom” as an opportunity to persecute its own indigenous Christians, the Copts. Within weeks of Mubarak’s...

    Balaam’s prophecy to Balak, the King of Moab is remarkable on many levels. he fact that Balaam wasn’t even a believer is an incredible testimony to the Sovereignty of God. Truly he makes even “the wrath of men to praise Him”. The fact that He was hired by one of the bitter enemies of Israel to curse them, makes this a story about Genesis 12:2-3, which was cited several times in this narrative. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I...

    US President tells meeting of Orthodox Jewish leadership that his support falls with Israel when it comes to peace. WASHINGTON -- US President Barack Obama is worried that Palestinian leadership was no longer as interested in advancing toward peace, he said in a conversation with Orthodox Jewish leaders on Tuesday. During the conversation, an Orthodox Union (OU) official asked Obama what lessons he had learned about promoting Israeli-Palestinian peace, considering how his first two years in office had been marked by tensions with Israel. When it came to Israel, Obama asked the group not to doubt his "fidelity" to their...

    There can be no doubt about it. The Holy Father has been under siege. This was not only foretold by little Jacinta of Fatima, but by Don Bosco, who prophesied that the time would come when the Devil would sow discord among those closest to the Holy Father and what the Holy Father must do: "Now Heaven's voice is addressed to the Shepherd of shepherds. You are now in conference with your advisors. The enemy of the good does not stand idle one moment. He studies and practices all his arts against you. He will sow discord among your consultors;...

    Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday urged Israeli leaders to relinquish the idea of a unified Jerusalem if they truly want peace, contending in a pair of interviews that years of government neglect have kept the Jewish and Arab sectors irreparably divided. The comments, made as Israel marked the 45th anniversary of capturing east Jerusalem, were nearly unprecedented for a mainstream Israeli leader and put Olmert at odds with his successor, Benjamin Netanyahu. Celebrating Israel's control of Jerusalem, Netanyahu declared his government was committed to keeping the entire city Israel's undivided capital. "No Israeli government since 1967 has done...

    War is coming to the Middle East soon! A casual observer would reply “What’s new?” In a way he would be correct. War is the rule not the exception in that part of the world. However, this is a completely different war, and we need to be ready for it. On the night of May 7-8, 2012, Prime Minister Netanyahu forged a national unity government when he managed to bring Kadima, the main opposition party, into his ruling coalition. This was completely unexpected because hours before the Knesset had been discussing a bill calling for early elections that Netanyahu was...

    If you’d really like to depress yourself some evening, watch “Doomsday Preppers” on the National Geographic Channel. The show details the plans of normal, well adjusted people to cope with the aftermath of fiscal collapse, nuclear holocaust, the eruption of Yellowstone, solar flares, and so on. The New York Times noted with outrage that many of these people were accumulating guns and ammunition in order to defend their 1,500 pounds of MREs and dried brown rice, but stockpiling guns is fine with me. My concern is that most of them seem pretty inexpert with guns. One prepper was counting on...

And both of these systems of secular humanism eclipse the person, eliminate his freedom, deny his human-divine value and subject him to the tyranny of technological impersonalism.

    Bible prophecy indicates that in the End Times, the nation we know today as the Republic of Iraq—known variously in Scripture as Babel, Babylon, Babylonia, Mesopotamia and Shinar—will emerge as the global center of wealth, power and terrible evil. Eventually Iraq will pose a direct and existential threat to the State of Israel, particularly during the Tribulation. Since the fall of Saddam Hussein and his regime in 2003, Iraq has not been a regional threat, much less a danger to Israel. Some have assumed, therefore, that Iraq would no longer play a major role in Middle Eastern or global affairs...
