God’s End-Time CHECKMATE!
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
Are you ready for God’s End-time "checkmate?"
The game of chess has two opposing sides, "light" coloured and "dark" coloured. In our world today we are clearly witnessing a battle between good and evil …and "darkness" against the "light" of God!" However, as believers God is our King and is moving the "pieces" on His "master chessboard" to position us for the strategic days to come. It may seem like we are losing but, in the end, we WIN! Never have the pieces come together so well to align End-Times Prophecy with the current events of today! Even unbelievers who don’t believe in Prophecy or the Bible will NOT escape. Many today are in total denial and will be affected by what God is doing to bring about the FINAL "piece" – the "CHECKMATE" and end of the world as we ALL know …and the beginning of a new Era under God’s rule at the Lord’s Second Coming. God has written down over thousands of years ago what would take place in the Last Days – it’s not an opinion BUT a fact! The Bible is absolutely a "time-piece" that describes without a doubt what’s going to happen at humanities End of Days.
In chess it’s important to move pieces into place before moving in on the opponent’s king… If you know anything about the game of chess, you know it all comes down to when the King on either side can move no more. Once the king is trapped, the winning side declares "checkmate" and the game is over. Chess is a game of "patience" and even in these very difficult times preceding our Lord’s Second Coming …we too must learn that God is a God of patience! When one considered the "moving of pieces" needed in order for David to be crowned King of
The God of the universe knows our hearts, He knows our path, and as our Abba we must trust in His way, NOT our own; “He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like foliage.” - Proverbs 11:28. Today everything that can be shaken is being shaken! Many are still in denial and put their trust and desires in wicked leaders, science and technology and the material things of this world. Yes, we do need science and technology when it is used for our good – but today we are seeing wickedness of mankind lusting after power and using these things for evil. How things have changed! It has become rare to sit back and ask God what we can do for the Almighty since we are living in times of entitlement and want God to place stuff in our paths for our own joy …but we don’t ask how we can be used as His “pieces” on His chessboard. What are we on the board? Are we “pawns,” or are we “knights?” Are we the little throw away pieces …or God’s heavy hitters? Perhaps we should look at it from God’s point of view? The world has become incredibly selfish and many have forsaken God!
What is actually driving the dark forces across the world today …or what’s transpiring in our world today right before our eyes? Our Lord warned us 2,000 years ago (Matthew 24; Luke 21) that an “era” just preceding His return of “wars and rumours of wars” as well as pestilences, lawlessness, the falling away from faith - etc. that WILL occur …BUT as believers we have hope in the midst of turmoil; “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” - Revelation 3:10. Have we not seen that
We are NOT FORSAKEN! Repeatedly in Scripture, God assures His people that there is always a way of escaping situations that seem hopeless at the time… When the people of
In John 8, it looked like “checkmate” for the woman caught in adultery who was about to be killed by angry men with stones …but Yeshua (Jesus) told the woman to go and not sin anymore! On Good Friday, the criminal next to our Lord on the Cross thought it was “checkmate” - yet he still repented and was saved!
So often in life, we consider the world to be a mess and certainly it is with the criminal power-hungry greedy World Leaders controlling the Nations today, war, violence, a deadly fear filled plan-demic by Globalists Elites that caused unemployment, depression, isolation, and so much more. We can easily become disillusioned as we witness people without hope for the future. The godless world may look for direction without Almighty God but WILL end up on the wrong path. When it seems almost like "checkmate" ...for believers in Yeshua (Jesus) our Bible tells us that we need NOT fear as the game is not over until God says it is so! Our Creator God still has one move left and He may seem silent …but soon our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) will proclaim loudly with the sound of the Trumpet and it will be His "CHECKMATE" and we win! Our lives and futures are ALL in God’s hands. The Lord is the only KING who can NEVER be defeated.
God will NOT allow the enemy to defeat us – He is exposing all their wicked plans. The "chess pieces" are falling into place… So, we see each "piece" on the board moves in a certain path, in a particular pattern. Every path is individual - unlike the game of checkers where all the pieces move across the board in the same way. While each "chess piece" has a unique direction in which it moves, all the pieces work together to accomplish the goal: reach the other side and capture the opponent’s king. The KNIGHT moves in an "L" shape pattern and is the only piece allowed to jump over other pieces. The BISHOP moves on the diagonal, backwards and forwards. The Rook moves horizontally and vertically, also backwards and forwards.
The PAWN is unique... It is like the foot soldier and can only move forward, one square at a time. Unlike the other pieces, a pawn never retreats – it never moves backward! On its first move, it can advance 2 spaces and its purpose is …to defend the KING and QUEEN. Pawns are most effective when positioned together on the board. Separated from the others, they become weak and vulnerable to attack, and the security of the king and queen is compromised. Pawns are the foundation and wall of protection for the game. They open up diagonals for BISHOPS, protect other pieces, and lead the way for attacks. A pawn can retrieve pieces previously lost in the game by penetrating the opponent’s territory!
All the chess pieces have positions and everyone is getting moved into position... The following questions clearly came as we were researching for this newsletter and we ask ourselves …Do you know what the "pieces" on the chessboard mean? Do you know what their "positions" on the chessboard signify? What position are you on the chessboard? The KING – can represent Christ and the QUEEN – the Bride of Christ. The key strategy related to the queen is this; "Don’t bring your queen out too early in the game. If you do and you lose your queen, you are likely to lose the game!" Christ has His "Bride" the Church (Queen) and will come at a time when least expected – "in a Twinkle of the Eye" will ALL be "caught up" to be with our KING!
The KING on a chessboard doesn’t move many steps at once …however the QUEEN can move to protect the King. The KNIGHTS – can represent "prayer warriors." The ROOK is the Castle and represents God’s Kingdom. The Rook protects the King and just as the BISHOPS are the Priests/ Pastors. What is really special about the PAWNS is that when they are moved from one end of the board to another – they can be transformed to a higher piece and greater power! The Pawns are just like us when we complete our race and we meet our lord; "His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter you into the joy of your lord."- Matthew 25:23.
The world is a stage… Everyone has a role to play just like a chessboard. All the actors are getting into position even the wicked are being exposed …and so are God’s children - true believers as God is positioning His Church for the world events of Last Days. God is moving believers who are NOT in the right place yet and setting us into a position where we can be most effective and God is giving us different roles! Everything is falling into place right now just as the "stage is set! The chess-game is about to begin and we MUST be ready! The Lord is calling believers back into the game, taking us from the side-lines and bringing us into the midst of the battle. It is a critical time! When we understand the power we have, we can advance regardless of the enemy’s tactics. We don’t know how much power our cars have until we put our foot on the accelerator pedal. It’s "pedal to the metal" time! We are moving forward in the power God has ordained, but not in an angry, strident, militarist way …but rather, you move out from a place of rest, knowing that we are loved by our Bridegroom…His beloved - His queen. We have the confidence of knowing that we war from a place of victory because the King has already secured the territory we are to occupy. So, we MUST be confident and encouraged to step out clothed in the love of our Bridegroom.
Chess is a game of strategy and tactics… There is so much thinking involved in the game of chess – but everyone has the same rule – play to win. In the real-world Satan has his players and they are playing hard to win and "checkmate" believers! Satan is using the wickedness of godless Globalist Elites and they are fighting hard to not only defeat us …but also attack upon God and His Kingdom. We must know our enemy and so, every move we make must be made after much planning, deliberation, strategy, and tactic because as long as we are on this sinful world ruled by Satan we must "…be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." - 1 Peter 5:8. We will always have an opponent who has plans for our downfall. And, as the bible says we must NOT be ignorant of our enemy’s devices; "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. The "thief" is the devil and the devil is a thief. He comes to kill, steal and destroy. He is the author of sin, sickness, poverty, and death. He tries to steal our SHALOM "peace" …and joy and health. There is NO good thing in him and he has his followers. He hates God and he hates God’s crowning Creation – mankind. He is constantly working to destroy "life" and anything that is good and pure. He is a liar and a deceiver!
Chess is a strategic game and NOT a game to play just for fun - people play this game to win... There isn’t much laughing while playing this game. But instead see two people with knitted eyebrows and serious facial expressions planning their next move. Both people have to focus on winning. It is the same in spiritual warfare throughout our lives. Today we see the intense fight between Light and darkness and good and evil! The wicked plans of the Globalists – New World Order or Reset and depopulation plan is advancing …but at the same time God’s Kingdom WILL advance and nobody can stop God – nobody can stop what God had "set in motion" for the End-times. Prophecy WILL come to pass and in the end we as children of God – will win!
Chess is a game which involves much sacrifice… Satan is our opponent and today we can also see that he is "setting up" his pawns - to be taken as "collateral damage" and willing to sacrifice less important pieces in order to protect his most important piece the king (coming Antichrist). He would send in "a pawn" to a place where we would immediately, without thought, react to capture it. And while we are distracted in other areas and focusing on beating him and his Cabal or lies from corrupt Media, he was already making his next move by moving certain "pieces" of his opposition out of position so that he could get our KING. In chess, making a move without forethought can cause our soon or future demise. We must have a strategy or tactic to stay in the game for long if we want to end up as the victor not the victim.
One of the top tips to winning chess is to fight for, and win, the centre… Trying to control this area early brings the focus of the game where we are and gives us a chance to fight on our chosen ground. Reminds us again of spiritual warfare. Satan may be appearing to be setting up shop and traps around other areas of our lives using the W.E.F, U.N and W.H.O. …but he is ultimately after our heart, mind, soul, and spirit which ALL belong to God …and our DNA which is God’s DNA!
Just ONE wrong move can free up the board for the enemy to come in and take out our special or protective pieces. Just one wrong move can make our KING more susceptible to attack. God is our KING – the Church is the BRIDE …and while on earth as believers it is important to begin the game knowing what our "pawns" and "special pieces" can do. It is also important to know our "opponents" limitations and to use them to our advantage. Unless a "pawn" is attacking another "piece" making one diagonal move, he can only move forward. So, knowing that a "pawn" cannot move to its immediate right or left means our "rook" is able to stand beside a "pawn" and later capture it. In addition to knowing our enemies’ weaknesses, we need to be aware of our strengths. To know that a "Queen" (Bride of Christ) can go in any direction as many places as she has room to go, is a huge advantage because if none of her own "team" is blocking her path, she can take on whoever she wants going forwards and backwards!
Chess is a game where every move we make will be followed by a defensive or offensive move from our opponent… We must be aware that everything we do for God - WILL evoke negative response from the enemy! Satan and his Cabal want to fool us into thinking that prayer does NOT work and that Almighty God does not exist! We MUST PRAY without ceasing especially in the times that we are living today! When we live for God because the enemy is planning his next attack on US since he knows that we are clearly his opponent. Satan doesn’t fight people who live for him because they’re on his team! So, if you are on God’s side, you better expect an attack from Satan. The worship of the CREATION and not the CREATOR is "idol worship" and as we see today "Climate change" has become like a new religion! Our God is still in control and He has perfect knowledge of the world that He has created …and which still exists thousands of years after Creation. The Lord warned us that even "earthquakes" and "famine" are "signs" that would increase in the Last Days. Our HOPE is in God alone NOT mankind’s Science to create a new world without God! We were warned that in the Last Days "deception" will be so great that even the elect WILL be deceived! We are NEVER going to return to what we once called normal before 2020. Everything happening today WILL soon become increasingly unpredicted for those who do NOT know the God of Israel and His Word - the Bible! The Bible proves without a doubt God exists and that Prophecies of thousands of years ago are His witness as they continue to unfold! Let the End-time’s Games begin Lord! Open our eyes and hearts Lord that we may see what you are saying and doing in our day that we may be ready for Your soon return!
Our God is in control of ALL situations and events of the world… "Who is like Me, declaring the end from the beginning." - Isaiah 46:10. When asked about the end of the world – Yeshua (Jesus Christ) said to understand the book of Daniel. Daniel the Prophet warns us of terrible End-time events that will affect the entire world! (Daniel 11-12) But, Daniel also provides wonderful hope for those who submit to God. Satan had tried to keep Daniel from understanding the "visions" (Daniel -14) that he had received from God …and thus prevent God’s truth from being revealed to our generation! The FINAL chapter of the book of Daniel focuses on End-time Prophecy events that WILL occur just before …and after Yeshua (Jesus Christ) returns to earth. Although Daniel apparently understood part of what he was inspired to write (Daniel ), he was curious to know the final outcome. "Then I said, ‘My lord, what shall be the end of these things?’ And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end’" - Daniel 12:8-9. Then the angel continued; "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand" - Daniel . The "wicked" are those who break and ignore God’s law. The "wise" are those living at the end of the age, who humbly obey God’s commands. These people are promised understanding by God.
The Nations are reeling with "Birth Pangs" by which Antichrist WILL arise… The wealthy godless "Elites" and their puppets the "bought and paid-for" Liberal Globalists World Leaders, Big Pharm and Big Tech. They are ALL connected and controlled by the Illuminati who control the World Health Org. and United Nations who together pull the strings to control both mass Media and the Education System since World War I. Most people WILL NEVER realize how propagandized they are, literally, as these Institutions have built a "propaganda box" around the minds of the people across the Nations …and so many look at today’s Society and Science the same way the Illuminati Globalist wants ALL of us to look at it. They do NOT honour God …NOR His Word - the Bible …and they hate or despise
Those who study the Prophecy know that we are living in the Last Days and that the times of these Prophesied "birth pangs" are currently ramping up… Every major Last Days’ trend anticipated in the Bible is being "positioned into place." Yeshua – Jesus Christ listed several Last Days’ "SIGNS" and then summarized; "So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near – at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place" - Matthew 24:33-34. In other words, once we see all the SIGNS coming into focus, we should expect the climax of these events within one generation since
Here is a list of some of the major Biblical Last Days’ events – all of which are in place today;
(1) Wide-spread deception in Christ’s Name; Matthew 24:4-5; 11; 24-26; 2 Thessalonians 2; 2 Peter 2:1-3.
(2) Global communications foreseen; Revelation 11:9-10; 17:8.
3) A Global cry for peace; 1 Thessalonians 5:3.
(4) Chaotic weather prevalent; Luke 21:25-26.
(5) A move toward a Global Government; Daniel 2:40-44; ; Revelation 13:7-8.
(6) Technology capable of tracking the world’s population; Revelation 13:16-17.
(7) Israel re-gathered into their Nation after being dispersed for 2,000 Years; Isaiah 11:11-12; 43:5-6; 66:8; Jeremiah 31:7-10; Ezekiel 37:21-22; 38:8.
(10) Preparations to re-build the 3rd
11) Russia, China, Iran and other countries rising as military powers and preparing a surprise attack on Israel; Ezekiel 38.
(12) Anti-Semitism worldwide increasing; Deuteronomy 28:37; Jeremiah 29:18; 44:8.
(13) Homosexuality and immorality flaunted; Luke -30; Genesis 19; Jude 1:7.
(14) A move toward a One-World Global Religion; Revelation 13:8; Revelation 17.
15) Lawlessness abounding; Matthew 24:12; Revelation 9:21.
(17) Increased interest in the occult, witchcraft, and sorceries; Revelation ; ; 21:8; Isaiah 47:9-15; Micah 5:10-15. (
18) The kings of the East rising; Revelation 9:14-16; .
There are many more Last Days’ SIGNS that appear to be culminating before our very eyes! The introduction of a One-World-Currency, Food shortages etc. And, since we are also in a Shemitah Year that only ends in September we MUST keep a close eye on these developments! Are we not today hearing of "shortages" as NEVER before? A Shemitah Year always affects Nations economically. A Shemitah Year is the 7th Year of a Cycle of God’s Biblical Calendar of Cycles of 7 years. 2022 (5782) is the 7th Year and this year on the 26th September on Rosh HaShanah the New Biblical Year 5783 (2022-23) will begin the 1st Year of the next 7-Year Cycle that will end in 2030. So, ALL indications are that the "birth-pangs" delivery MUST also be fast approaching too. Whether time is actually speeding up …or whether our perception is the result of these "birth-pangs" rapidly increasing - could this be the year? We cannot be certain! One thing is for sure, the Bible is true and the Lord’s return for His Bride – His Church is near – YES, even at the door!
No matter how hard "apostate" mankind struggles to apply a Global Solution to mankind’s problems they will NOT succeed until God removes His restraint of man’s evil impulse after the Rapture of the Church… Paul tells us in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-7 …that "the man of lawlessness (the Antichrist)" will NOT be revealed until "…he who now restrains (the Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way" (verse 7). The restrained will be removed at that future time when God will remove His Church through the Rapture. The removal at the Rapture will then allow for the rise of Antichrist …who will begin the 7-Year Tribulation by making "a covenant" with the Nation of Israel . The final 3 ½-Years will see Antichrist implementing his GLOBAL Governance in rebellion against God. Paul told the Thessalonians that; "...the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way."
Ever since the Tower of Babel, Satan has been working to bring about his agenda of Globalism …but God restrains him from reaching the flowering of his kingdom until after the Rapture but during the Tribulation. Because the "mystery of lawlessness" (iniquity) has been at work since
We should ask ourselves what is wiser and more strategic for our own lives too… Moving and using a "pawn" that was protecting the "KING" just to capture a worthless pawn right now just to lose the King one move later? Or keeping that "pawn" right there to protect the KING? We MUST watch what areas and territories in our lives and spirit and NOT let Satan have access to. Our SOULS are Eternal and belong to God – the world is not our home! In chess and in "Spiritual Warfare" and gain wisdom on what to move, where to, when, and why. The Holy Spirit will direct us. God will direct our paths if we consult with Him regarding major moves in our lives. God will make known which pathways we have left open for your foes that will make us vulnerable to their attacks. There is so much more we have learned and still learning from CHESS as it relates to "Spiritual Warfare" and living a victorious God filled life as we wait the Coming of our Lord – Yeshua (Jesus Christ).
It should NOT be surprising that we see the development of the wicked Globalists PLAN advancing at an alarming rate… when we consider the insight into such developments in light of Biblical teachings about past and future growth of the "kingdom of man!" It should be clear that all Globalization in our own day is the result of a SATANIC impulse, not one from God. We should NOT be surprised to learn that efforts toward a One-World-Government have been…and continue to be the efforts of so many in highest place of leadership of ALL Governments …and Commerce; and that they use the stealth of deception and finances to further their power, dreams and goals of TOTAL control. This understanding provides a framework for interpreting, and standing against many of the trends and events of our own day, knowing from where they have come …and to where they are leading. We take great relief in knowing that God is just and WILL one day judge this ungodly world. But at the same time, while we are eagerly waiting for a Saviour from Heaven, we should be aggressively preaching the Gospel of God’s Grace to any who will listen. Maranatha Yeshua - Jesus!
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; "despised and rejected by men," …and there is that despised element; "…things that are despised God has chosen," 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With "lockdown" and difficult "recovery" still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
