"The Target Jerusalem!"
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
Where are we on God’s timetable...? Are we seeing the “signs of the times...?” These are great days to be alive, the greatest days in all human history and the generation that may be so privileged to see the Coming of our Lord! It’s true that nobody knows the day or hour of our Lord’s return …but on the other hand the Bible gives us a detailed picture of the events surrounding the Second Coming of Yeshua (Jesus). Israel – “the fig tree” is back in the land after 2,000 years and NO other previous generation could even imagine this would happen. It was not until 1947/8 that this Biblical prophecy was fulfilled just as the Lord promised …and especially escalated when Jerusalem was finally liberated in 1967. Truly Israel is the thermometer of the Middle East.
Every major prophetic passage in the Bible places Israel at the centre of the End-Time map, and the centre-piece of the Last Days. (Ezekiel 38:8; Matthew 24:15-21) Israel is the wheel and all of the other signs are the spokes. The End-Time is the rim that cannot happen without the signs (the “spokes”). Yet the signs have no prophetic significance as “signs” apart from the existence of the “key sign” - Israel …the wheel or thermometer on which everything turns! That’s where the story began and that’s where it will all end. It’s no coincidence that the eyes of the world are riveted on the events of the Middle East and on Jerusalem at this moment. There is a clear pattern of events laid out in the Bible concerning the Last Days and if we put together the various strands of prophetic teaching from both Old and New Testaments – we discover a fairly detailed picture of the End-Time landscape; morally, politically, spiritually, militarily and economically.
Daniel said that he “could not understand” the prophecies given him. It was explained to him by the angel that those prophecies “are concealed and sealed up until the End Time.” (Daniel 12:8-9) However, Yeshua (Jesus) said there would be a generation that would “read and understand” the prophecies of Daniel. (Matthew 24:15)
AW Tozer once said, “A scared world needs a fearless church!” If we ever needed those words, we need them today. There is an amazing similarity between our world and the world that the Bible describes at the End of Time. If at any time there is a doubt just take the Bible in one hand and compare it to the news we read and see how well they fit together. If that is indeed true then we may very well be the generation privileged to see the rapture and the Second Coming of our Lord. Yes, there will be “scoffers” as the Bible warned us in 2 Peter 3:3-14 and who will say; “Why hasn’t the Lord returned since 2,000 years have passed – He’s not coming back?” The answer is simple... Israel was not back in the land until 1948, and had to be for prophecy to be fulfilled! Think about Noah’s flood in Genesis 6? Before the flood, men lived evil reckless lives with NO regard for God as if tomorrow would never come. They sinned in every way possible as Noah a righteous and obedient man built the Ark. But, one day the skies poured forth water and the fountains of the great were opened until water covered the entire earth. If God could do that once, and He has promised it will be like the Days of Noah, when the Lord returns …surely, He could do it again! The only difference this time of the Coming of Yeshua (Jesus) will bring judgement of “fire” to the earth and a day of judgement to the ungodly – truly a day of bad news! The good news for “scoffers” is - God’s mercy with the “delay” and is actually a gift from God to them …so that they have time to repent as He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked and does NOT want anyone to go to hell.
There is an old fable about a time when Satan was training three apprentice devils. Satan asked the first one how he proposed to deceive people. “I will tell them there is no God.” “That won’t work!” Satan replied, “for everyone knows there is a God.” The second replied, “I will tell them there is no hell.” “That won’t work either! Everyone knows there must be a hell,” Satan said. The third apprentice devil spoke up, “I will tell them there is no hurry!” Satan smiled and said, “You will deceive millions!” Certainly, this is one of Satan’s tactics as he wins millions by convincing them that there is no hurry for Christ’s return, repentance, salvation or even time to think about God! The devil will offer to mankind a “false Christ” - called the ‘Antichrist” who will be favourable to ALL religions (but will oppose true Christianity) and it will be called the truth. The Antichrist will distort, disregard and disguise the truth and replace it with his own words - a lie, …and the people who have rejected the love of the truth of God and His Word, the Bible, will happily accept his lies (2 Thessalonians 2:10). It will find completion in the ultimate rebellion, bringing those who reject the truth under one head, an individual leader known as “the man of sin and lawlessness” - the Antichrist! Everything that our Lord Yeshua – Jesus Christ stood for and represented; holiness, truth, honesty will be twisted and the Antichrist will replace it with evil and sin that he will convince is the good. He will directly challenge the Lord and His word – the Bible. At the End of the Age far less will understand, the light will be in conflict with the increasing darkness and deception will be the norm. We are watching this occur today; as the light of the truth of the Gospel is becoming dimmer.
“For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night,” 1 Thessalonians 5:2. The Day of the Lord is another name for the Great Tribulation, it will come upon everyone suddenly. The end will resemble the beginning as Yeshua (Jesus) comes back in glory during the darkness that has overtaken mankind. The only thing that is keeping this world from complete darkness is the light and the “restrainer” - the Holy Spirit; 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7. The Lord spoke of His arrest and how it related to darkness. Luke 22:53, “When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” As Satan motivated the men who rejected Christ to rid the world of Him, in the end Satan will retry this and succeed temporarily to replace Him. Satan is described as “the God of this World” (2 Corinthians 4:4) …and is the influence behind false religions and cults that are against Christianity …and he presides over politics that promote anti-God life styles. The Prince of this world (Daniel 10:12-11: 1 John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11) and this refers more specifically to Satan’s influence over the governments and politics and areas of this world. Satan is the one who exalts and positions the evil rulers to do his will. Satan and the Antichrist are found in passages such as 2 Thessalonians 2:9; Daniel 8:23-25; 11:36-39. These passages show us that the man who is the Antichrist would be a man controlled and energized by Satan.
How will the armies of the nations attack Israel…? The identity of the Antichrist will NOT be a mystery following the midway point of the 70th week of Daniel. The Antichrist will reveal himself when he sits in the temple of God and makes the claim that he is God; “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there comes a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4. The revealing of the “man of sin” or “”son of perdition” happens after the 1,260 days of the 7 years. The Apostle Paul amplifies this event with the words indicating that this event can only occur after “the great falling away” has taken place – apostasy! The sequence of events of the battle of Armageddon will be sparked by the prophecy in Daniel 11, with the king of the South and the king of the North. We will see the European confederacy (Antichrist) - Roman Empire (Daniel 9:24-27 where we see that Vs. 24 gives us the scope; Vs. 25 gives us the 69 weeks; Vs. 26 there’s an interval and prediction of the messiah; Vs. 27 gives us the 70th Week and prophecy of Daniel) come in from the west as well as the “Kings of the East.”
The king of the North successfully wages a campaign against Israel and passes through Israel into Egypt and Northern Africa (like Alexander the Great), but then returns to Israel because of rumours from the East and North. However, nowhere do we learn that Gog of Ezekiel 38 enjoys success in his campaign against Israel and nowhere do we read that God destroys the king of the North in the manner that God destroys Gog.
“And He (God) gathered them together in a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon,” Revelation 16:16. Situated at the foot of Israel's Mount Megiddo, the Valley of Jezreel is the site of the “Battle of Armageddon”… where the final battle on the great day of God Almighty will occur before the Second Coming of Yeshua (Jesus). One can see the flat Valley of Jezreel clearly from the top of Mount Carmel in Haifa, where Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal. On the opposite of Megiddo, we can see Nazareth, which is also quite interesting as this is the city where our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) was being raised as a child. Would our Lord have thought about the final days when looking down towards the Jezreel Valley and Mount Megiddo? Just a thought! Here in this valley the Battle of Armageddon, all of the world's armies WILL descend on this plain for an epic gathering place for the final battle against Israel as they march towards Jerusalem. When the battle ends, the valley will be filled with “blood up to the bridles of the horses,” but the land will be restored to Israel under Christ's rule, fulfilling God’s Covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob …and the Jewish people where God promised to restore the land to his descendants.
The fact that Israel will be salvaging and scavenging the material from these destroyed armies for a period of 7 years would mean that this cannot happen during the Tribulation time period because the Tribulation will only last 7 years. Therefore, knowing that God is giving this fuel to Israel for a period of 7 years …and that the length of Tribulation is a 7-year period of time, places this event directly before the signing of the 7-year “peace treaty” which initiates the Tribulation time period. This war absolutely must happen before the beginning of or in conjunction with the beginning of Tribulation.
What will be the aftermath of the Gog/Magog War against Israel...? The seven months of burying the bodies of the armies of Gog/Magog and the seven years of burning the weapons are crucial in determining when this invasion occurs. For any view to be correct it must satisfy the requirements of these seven months and seven years. These details are key to determining when in respect to the final Armageddon War and return of Yeshua – Jesus Christ, the Gog Magog war occurs in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy. Given the 2nd half of the Tribulation period comprises of the worst period in human history. It is unlikely that the Jews will be in any position in the second half of the Tribulation to be burying bodies and burning weapons. They will have fled from Israel in the “time of Jacob’s trouble” to the areas of Bozrah and Petra …to the hiding place prepared in the wilderness for those who heed the Scriptural warning. So, who will be doing the burying and burning? Scripture does not say who will be cleansing the land of Israel after the Gog Magog war and therefore assume that it could be those Jews who are living in Jerusalem at the time of the war of Armageddon. The cleansing of the land of Israel doesn’t seem to be a task non-Jews would be fit to do in response to God’s glorious victory on behalf of Israel over Gog and the Islamic armies accompanying him! It also appears that it would take a time of peace and security to allow the cleansing of the land to transpire.
For the invasion of Gog and Magog to serve God’s purpose of a wakeup call to Israel and the world to the presence and reality of God before complete rise of power of the Antichrist and his total domination by Satan - there must be a time gap between Gog’s destruction and the Antichrist’s betrayal of Israel at the midpoint of Daniel’s 70th week. The gap of time must be long enough for Israel to respond to God, Jehovah, and for the people of the world to accept or reject the God of Israel. A portion of this period between the defeat of Gog and the Antichrist’s self-declaration of being GOD will be used by God’s true messengers, the two witnesses and the 144,000 Jewish servants (12 tribes of Israel) of God to proclaim God’s case against Israel and the world regarding their rebellion against God, and the case for Yeshua (Jesus) as the Son of God and the Messiah. A period of days, or weeks, or even months could not be long enough. Most likely this gap of time will be 3 ½ years to 7 years in length. A pre-Tribulation setting on the basis that this satisfies the majority of conditions described in Ezekiel 38:8-11 in relation to “a people gathered from many nations” (Jews) to Israel in the latter years (our time and generation) a land that had been “a continual waste” …but is now inhabited and restored and is now “living securely” with enviable economic resources. ALL these descriptions can apply to MODERN ISRAEL today! This is a very exciting time to be alive!
Thus, the world will perish by fire, no true believers shall be hurt by that fire …BUT sinners shall. Noah’s flood continued for many days and months and he was a whole year in the Ark …however, the weapons of Ezekiel’s prophecy of Gog are 7 years in burning! “For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up, and he shall be brought low,” Isaiah 2:12. (Also read: Isaiah 13:9; Isaiah 19:16; Joel 2:11; Jeremiah 46:10; Zephaniah 3:20; Ezekiel 39:7; Haggai 2:20-22 and Zechariah 14.
What is the difference between Gog and Magog and the Battle of Armageddon...? Towards the end of the 7-year covenant (peace agreement/treaty) with Israel, the “kings of the East,” move against the armies of Antichrist and come through ancient Mesopotamia (the River Euphrates is dried up to prepare their way (Revelation 9:11-14) …and on their way to the Battle of Armageddon in which not just Islamic armies but all the armies of the world come to face the Lord in a final battle to kill the Jews and their Messiah. This is not the battle of Gog Magog.
The two are distinct in many ways but let’s consider the differences between the two battles. Battle of Gog and Magog vs. Battle of Armageddon:
(1) The battle of Gog and Magog - occurs before or at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. The Battle of Armageddon - occurs at the end of the Great Tribulation.
(2) The battle of Gog and Magog - specific nations that surround Israel immediately are identified. The Battle of Armageddon - nations from all over the world come together to battle against Israel.
(3) The battle of Gog and Magog - the enemies of Israel attack Israel from the northern parts assembling together in the mountains of Israel. The Battle of Armageddon – the enemies of Israel gather at Megiddo may attack from different directions.
(4) The battle of Gog and Magog – the person Gog leads the attack. The Battle of Armageddon – the Antichrist leads the attack.
(5) The battle of Gog and Magog – the dead are left on the ground becoming food for the fowls of the air and it takes 7 months to bury the dead and 7 years to burn the weapons. The Battle of Armageddon – the dead are annihilated and do not litter the ground. The earth is soon restored and no time line is specified for weapons or bodies.
(6) The battle of Gog and Magog – the nature of destruction could be nuclear and is described as “fire,” “brimstone” and “plague.” The Battle of Armageddon – the destruction of the enemies is by the Word of the Lord and the armies appear to be swept away.
(7) The battle of Gog and Magog – the armies are destroyed on the mountains of Israel. The Battle of Armageddon – the enemies are destroyed on the plains of Megiddo.
(8) The battle of Gog and Magog – there is no indication that Israel loses land or population due to the war against Gog. The Battle of Armageddon – 2/3 of Israel’s population is destroyed and Israel is occupied by the Antichrist.
(9) The battle of Gog and Magog – there are no specific instructions for Jews to flee Israel. The Battle of Armageddon – the Jews are warned to flee to Bozrah (Petra in Jordan).
(10) The battle of Gog and Magog – Gog comes against Israel for God’s glory through their defeat and no judgement against Israel. The Battle of Armageddon – the Antichrist attacks Israel as judgement for Israel’s rejection of her Messiah.
What’s the difference between Gog and the Antichrist...?
Gog’s motivation is to seize plunder from the “land of un-walled villages” and destroy Israel. There is no indication that Gog ever seeks to protect Israel and has no authority to rule over Israel at any time period. Gog is killed in the invasion of Israel and buried with his troops (Ezekiel 39:11) and has no memorial, no tomb. He is buried in the valley of Hamon Gog …and after Gog is killed, the dead are buried for 7 months and weapons burned by Israel for 7 years. It is not specified that Satan empowers Gog or that Gog admires or worships Satan but may be empowered by “a principality or power?” God hooks Gog and drags him to Israel and God controls Gog. Gog is the sole leader of many armies pitted against God. Gog seeks to conquer only the region of the Middle East through the “War of Gog and Magog!”
The Antichrist motivation is to annihilate the people of God, the Jews, from Israel and across the world. The Antichrist presents himself as a covenant protector of Israel for three and a half years and is granted authority to rule over Israel and dominate it. The Antichrist seeks to conquer the entire world through the elimination of God’s people and the Battle of Armageddon. The Antichrist leads along with an associate called the “False Prophet!.” Yeshua (Jesus) disposes of the Antichrist and the Antichrist is seen by the world as a spectacle and is cast alive into the “lake of fire” along with the False Prophet forever and ever! After the Antichrist and False Prophet are thrown into the “lake of fire” - no mention is made of the dead …but that the Kingdom of God commences! It is evident that Satan empowers the Antichrist and not God! It is extremely clear that the Antichrist exalts Satan. It is also expressly stated that the Antichrist is the “son of perdition” and the “seed of Satan.”
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the Great River Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared,” Revelation 16:12. The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the Great River Euphrates! The same place where the Turkish power and Empire began …and it is from here that a way shall be made for the princes (or kings) of the East to march their huge armies through the valley of Megiddo for the battle of Armageddon. What did this vial produce? The drying up of the river and a way is hereby prepared for the kings of the East …and, Islam shall fall at the same time and “the times of the Gentiles” shall end. When this work of God appears, it will be the last effort of Satan - the great dragon to have another push, rallying his forces, re-collecting all his evil spirits, to make one desperate attempt before all is lost and will make use of the nations and world powers of the earth to come against Jerusalem.
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet,” Revelation 16:13. Three unclean spirits like frogs come forth; one out of the mouth of the dragon, another out of the mouth of the beast, and a third out of the mouth of the false prophet. Here we see these evil spirits come - out of hell, out of the Antichrist, and out of the false prophet all furnished with hellish malice, with worldly policy, and with religious falsehood and deceit to muster up the devil’s forces for this decisive battle.
Turkey is significant in the End Times…
(a) The 7 churches of Revelation were situated in ancient Turkey (Anatolia).
(b) Noah’s Ark came to rest in Turkey on Mount Ararat and the Bible warns us that in the End Times it will be… “As it was in the days of Noah so it shall be in the days of the Son of Man,” Matthew 24:37.
(c) Pergamum one of the 7 churches was located in Turkey and was “the seat of Satan” according to Revelation 2:13. Although its famous temple was dismantled and moved to Berlin – Germany, during the time of Adolph Hitler. (d) Germany is over-run with Turks and is even considered a second home to many. Today Angela Merkel a good friend of Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan, is the instigator of Muslim refugee infiltration into Germany and Europe. The Seat of Satan temple had its roots in Turkey and through Hitler - handed it over to Germany.
(e) Ankara the capital of Turkey is considered more “true north” of Jerusalem than Moscow.
(f) Israel did not take over the Temple Mount! We must get it clear that right now the Temple Mount is unholy and has the abomination of the A-Aqsa lMosque and so to believe Jews have taken over the Temple Mount – is false. When the 3rd Temple is finally built it will be a place for the Antichrist. On the 25th July, 2017 after Israel placed security metal detectors at entrances to Temple Mount, Erdogan called on Muslims to make a pilgrimage to so-called “Palestine,” calling on Muslims to defend Al-Aqsa “just as we defend Mecca and Medina”. He stated “I call on all Muslims around the world to go on a pilgrimage to Al-Aqsa, to Palestine, if they are able to, or find a way and help our brothers therein if they’re unable to travel. The more we defend Al-Aqsa, the fiercer the resistance will be. If Israeli soldiers are dirtying Al-Aqsa with their boots, the reason is we fail to defend it decently. Let’s defend Palestine just as we defend Mecca and Medina.” Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded to Erdogan, calling on the Turkish President to deal with Turkey’s “problems and difficulties,” reaffirming that Jerusalem is the Capital of the State of Israel. Emmanuel Nachshon of the Ministry stated that Erdogan - “would do better to deal with the problems and difficulties in his country. The days of the Ottoman Empire are over.” On Jerusalem, he stated “The Capital of the Jewish people was, is and always will be Jerusalem. As opposed to the past, this is a city where the government is committed to its security, liberty, freedom of worship, and respect of the rights of all minorities.”
(g) Meshech and Tubal are located in Turkey. Magog comprises of a region between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. “Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,” Ezekiel 38:2.
(h) Turkey is considered the protector of Islam since the Ottoman Empire reigned for almost 1,000 years, from the 10th – 20th Century. Turkey like Rome will arise in the last days!
(i) Turkey is situated as a bridge between the East and the West. On one side, the country connects to the West and on the other side to the East.
(j) ISIS terrorists and Islamists used the Syrian refugee’s infiltration as a “gateway” into conquering the West for their moon-god Allah. Today we see the aftermath of this “hijrah” – a large scale mass Muslim migration and this is not going to end well for Europe. It appears the policies of the liberal socialist leaders in Europe are encouraging this invasion which is political suicide.
When we read Ezekiel’s list of nations that confederate with Gog - to the modern mind we cannot connect with peoples and places of thousands of years ago as they are unfamiliar to us. However, the Word of God never changes and they are important now just as they were when Ezekiel wrote about them; “Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you,” Ezekiel 38:1-6. However, the names are also not unfamiliar to those who have studied history of ancient peoples and places around the world. These names mentioned by Ezekiel refer back to the sons, grandsons and great-grandsons of Noah and place names for regions, mountains and cities go back to Biblical names. The Bible teaches us that the entire world population traces its lineage back to Noah and through his three sons; Ham, Shem and Japheth. Ham was the father of the Hamites predominantly peoples of Africa; Shem the father of the Shemites or Semites settling in the Middle East and Southwest Asia; and, the third son Japheth was the father of Japhethites peoples that spread to the North, far East, and far West of the place where Noah’s Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat (Turkey). Only Noah was perfect in all his generations (Genesis 6:9) and his three sons eligible to replenish the earth. The Tribal names mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39 are listed in Genesis 10:1-5 as the “Table of Nations” and the historian Flavius Josephus has written much about this treasure of history.
People travel all over the world and families move from place to place and even more so in modern times, however, even over time - large people groups generally stay in the same region and tend to stay put. The Germans are usually associated with Gomer and today the Turks make up a large percentage of the population of Germany.
Ever wonder why Saudi Arabia, UAE etc …aren’t willing to take in refugees even though they have more in common being Muslim rather than the Christian West? A Hijrah is a “jihad” by emigration and means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam and Shariah Law there …and is considered by Islam to be a holy and revered action; “whoever emigrates for a cause of Allah will find on earth many locations and abundance and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant for Allah and Muhammad – and death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah,” Surah 4:100. So, if a Muslim dies in the process, that’s essentially the same as being a “suicide bomber,” and this explains the eagerness of Muslims to undertake such a perilous journey! Muslim countries are not taking in these so-called refugees because this is a “hijrah” and not a humanitarian crisis but rather an invasion. Their goal is to transform Europe by over-taxing its economies, tearing down wealthiest Western nations, re-drawing the demographics and of course their culture!
Israel the land of “un-walled villages”… “You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land, Ezekiel 38:11-12. Israel is re-gathered from the nations back in her land, living in safety and security and possesses great wealth! This could be the very conditions after Israel has defeated her enemies in the Psalm 83 war and presumably capturing the spoils of its surrounding Arab nations.
Asaph who wrote Psalm 83 identifies the enemies of Israel to Israel in the 9th Century BC. These enemies existed then just as the Psalmist wrote his prayer straightforward …and as he pleaded with the Lord God to avenge Israel’s defeats at the hands of their enemies. The enemies surrounding Israel were a threat then and just as they are today! He went on bended knee that the enemies “learn God’s Name is Jehovah. God’s Name is not Allah! The enemies of Israel in Asaph’s day are today still the enemies of Israel and just as hostile surrounding God’s land and people. If we take the position that God has been re-claiming the ancient land of Israel on behalf of His ancient people through a steady process over the past 69 years we have a strong case that this could be the privileged generation. Psalm 83 is still an un-fulfilled prophetic war that Israel will face in near future. Israel however does not need to possess great wealth for Gog to be motivated to attack Israel to “take a great spoil.” Gog will be hooked by God …and drawn in by God! In this sense we can believe that the next Great War in the Middle East is imminent in the near future. Time will tell!
Another critical factor is the 3rd Temple… Without the Temple “to be desecrated” there will be no revealing of the Antichrist! Israel must undergo an event which literally shakes it out of fear of the nations of the world and its apathy towards God. That event is the destruction of the invading forces of Gog Magog! There is absolutely no way that the Arab Islamic nations, UN, Roman Catholic Church or other nations of the world under the present political, economic and religious circumstances, would stand by and allow Israel to re-build on its ancient site …unless Israel took full control of the Temple Mount! A great war must occur… but the question is which war? Psalm 83 or Gog Magog -Ezekiel 38…?
We living in times predicted by the Lord - that it will evil times just as in the Days of Noah and Lot and in the season of the Lord’s return. We believe that the Rapture is an imminent pre-Tribulation event. Yeshua (Jesus) taught that for believers the “signs of His Coming” would be as clear as the weather sign. (Matthew 16:1-4; Luke 12:54-56) and told us that when the signs begin to take place …and when we see all of the signs, we are to know two things; our redemption is near and He is “at the door!” (Luke 21:28; Matthew 24:33) Yeshua said that the generation that sees all of the signs listed in His Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24) would see His Second Coming. We have not yet seen all of those signs (the Antichrist, the False Prophet etc.), but we are certainly seeing the beginning of them. Yes, we are living in the season of the Lord’s return - first the Rapture and then His return to the earth.
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. We can only do this through the faithfulness of all our caring partners and are so grateful for everyone as it takes every drop to fill the bucket and you are like “refreshing raindrops” to Israel’s needy children and families. You may not be on the frontline but you are very much a part of this success… and you make the difference, thank you so much. We most sincerely believe that God WILL bless you for your faithfulness and love for His land and His chosen people. God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people. 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 once again for your prayers and generous support!
