Shalom Precious Partner and Friend of
The pace of life today has certainly increased …but is TIME speeding up simultaneously? Have you noticed that time seems to be accelerating; the hours, days, seasons, and years appear to fly by faster than ever before? An hour no longer feels like 60 minutes (unless you’re waiting in line or in a queue). One week seems to run into the next. It’s as if we’re watching the blur of a speeding train pass by. The pace of life has certainly increased, but is time speeding up? We on earth do NOT understand time well enough as only God certainly knows the answer. However, if an acceleration of time is occurring, is it anticipated in the Bible? When describing the Great Tribulation period, Yeshua (Jesus) warned us; “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened!” - Matthew 24:22. Our Lord said that if He did not cut those days short, man would destroy all flesh!
Yeshua (Jesus) likened the Last Days’ signs to “birth pangs!” The Greek word “odin,” often translated as “sorrows” and literally means birth pangs (Matthew 24:8). In addition, the Apostle Paul reminded us that “the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labours with birth pangs together until now” (Romans -22). As the time of delivery draws near, birth pangs always increase in both intensity and frequency. Therefore, the creation itself would travail with increased frequency as the time of delivery draws near. Interestingly, Scripture teaches that time is a physical property and is therefore part of God’s creation (Genesis 1:1; 2 Timothy 1:9). Therefore, the dimension we call TIME would also travail, and perhaps increase, as earth’s final days climax.
Certainly, God Himself “changes the times and the seasons” (Daniel ) as He sees fit as He is the one and only Sovereign God! And, He alone determines kings and nations and ordinances and times and seasons. So, it is NO surprise that His Word anticipates this time acceleration. Interestingly, Scripture even informs us that the Antichrist “…shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law!” - Daniel 7:25. Another Scripture that imply this quickening of life is found in - Daniel 12:4; “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Today we are clearly witnessing an explosion of available knowledge. With the dawn of the computer, and now especially the Internet, it is estimated that our cumulative knowledge is doubling every five years. And since the Industrial Revolution, multitudes are running “to and fro” just as the Bible prophesied. This exponential increase in available knowledge, and the ability to travel conveniently at accelerated speeds, is beyond what anyone could have imagined!
Those who study Bible Prophecy know that we are living in the Last Days …and the times of these prophesied birth pangs are currently ramping up exceedingly fast. Every major Last Days’ trend anticipated in the Bible is being positioned in place and like a tsunami that sweeps the globe, developments in Bible Prophecy are overwhelming and irrefutable! “The great day of the LORD is near; it is near and hastens quickly!” - Zephaniah 1:14.
Are we now into “Turbulent” or “Perilous” Times just as the Prophet Haggai warned us in Haggai 2:6-7 when he poured out his heart to show that in the Last Days - God is going to shake ALL things and bring ALL nations into judgement?
This same theme continues into the New Testament by the writer of the book of Hebrews confirms the judgment which follows “a shaking” that will affect every people and nation on earth in these End-Times Days; Be careful and don’t refuse to listen when God speaks. Those people refused to listen to him when he warned them on earth. And they did NOT escape. Now God is speaking from heaven. So, now it will be worse for those who refuse to listen to him. When he spoke before, his voice shook the earth. But now he has promised, “Once again I will shake the earth, but I will also shake heaven.” The words “once again” clearly show us that everything that was created will be destroyed - that is, the things that can be shaken. And only what cannot be shaken will remain. So, we should be thankful because we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. And because we are thankful, we should worship God in a way that will please him. We should do this with respect and fear, because our God is like a fire that can destroy us.” – Hebrews 12:25-29 (ERV) Sin has become legalized and codified in our societies and are celebrated openly …and at times even mocking God or anyone who wants to live righteously. In fact, if God allows our increasing wickedness to continue to go unchecked, He is going to have to ask forgiveness to all the other societies that perished for doing much less than what is being done today. God in His great love and mercy delays His impending judgments upon an unrepentant and ungrateful world for a time. He delays His judgements and pleads with us in an effort to bring us to repentance. During this “delay” God calls the inhabitants of the earth to turn around and return to Him (Joel 2:12-14) …but rebellious humanity rejects God’s plea’s and instead marks this period of “delayed judgment” with more ungodly living, even celebrating murder of the unborn which they call abortion, and other acts of defiance and wickedness. Yet NOTHING escapes the eyes of God. Just because there is no immediate consequence, doesn’t mean that we have somehow gotten away with anything. All sins that have NOT been forsaken and repented of will be brought to bear in the judgments of God. There will come a time when we all will have to give the account! Each individual’s decision when made through own choice sets their destiny.
Perilous times SHALL come! Today we are truly living in a time of “organized chaos” deliberately brought on by Globalists Elites and Liberal Socialist Leaders;
Let’s examine further! After some serious prayer and thought we can only but come to the conclusion that US President Trump had NOTHING to do with the condition we all find ourselves in today …but rather that he was chosen by God to “wreck” the plans of godless Globalists, Deep State, radical Liberals, Socialists, Communist China …and they working their plan together with their cohorts in the Media and Hollywood or so-called Elites! God is using President Donald Trump to openly expose them and their evil works and they hate him for it. Trump is God’s answer to the Nation of Israel, Western Capitalist Countries who proclaim to be Christian, the Church and especially to the true Judeo-Christian believers who have asked God to give the
These radical Liberal Democrats as we clearly see literally intimidate clueless people through “deception” by beating them into submission through these planned riots, looting and lies …and in fact we see this on a smaller scale in South Africa with the murder of farmers. The powerful rich control the masses through hatred and racialism simply to succeed in getting what they can’t get legally by voting …and are using Covid-19 Virus with help of
Did you know radical Muslims do NOT support abortion,
For example; leading Socialists like Bernie Sanders (who is a Jew by name only) …and radical Islamists Ilhan Omar join together with common purpose to destroy
This “radical change” did NOT just happen overnight… it happened a decade or more ago with Obama’s own words “radically change
“This know also, that in the last days perilous (fierce, difficult, dangerous, terrible) times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” – 2 Timothy 2:14. Today we clearly see so much pride and arrogance and the same sin that ousted Lucifer from the presence of God is still operating in many ways. It is a universal sign of the End Times, and we don’t need to look far to see Satan project himself.
Was the Covid-19 Virus “a sign” for people to repent of their sins? “YES, we believe so!” It’s also the beginning of the separating the “tares from the wheat.” While the people are kept masked and locked up in a state of confusion it is becoming clear that DESTRUCTION is moving quietly towards Western Nations on Land, by Sea and Air …and this destruction has a name –
The good news is that God is beginning to rise up an army or “spiritual movement” in the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Koddesh) and a revival like none other …the LAST revival! God has begun separating the “tares from the wheat” removing wheat from the destructive chaff …even in His Church bringing together the true believers in the Spirit to do His work in these End-times or “Last Days!”
As large as the Islamic problem is that it has destroyed most of
Today conflict exists between God’s Kingdom and the governments of this world but; “…to him there were given rulership, honour, and a kingdom, that the peoples, nations, and language groups should all serve him. His rulership is an everlasting rulership that will not pass away, and his kingdom will not be destroyed.” - Daniel 7:14. The
Yeshua (Jesus) forewarned us; "…look out for yourselves; people will hand you over to local courts, and you will be put on the stand before governors and kings for my sake," Mark 13:9. True Judeo-Christian believers do not seek to overthrow present governments …but instead seek to teach people Biblical truths and to put their faith in Almighty God and His Laws instead - as this is a perfect government! So, Christians consider it a privilege and duty to defend their obedience to God’s Authority before the worldly courts and often had good results doing so. Our God is a Holy and Righteous God and HAS exposed wickedness …and as 2020 has definitely shown us! And so, Governments that demand “total submission” from their people find it especially hard to accept God’s Laws and they want to remove Him from their society!
As followers and true believers of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach - Jesus Christ today, we have to expect our faithfulness to the God of the Bible WILL put us at odds at times with the laws of man and ungodly world government! You see, loyalty to the Kingdom of our Lord requires us then to answer as did the Apostles; "…We must obey God as ruler rather than men," Acts . Are you ready as the Body of Christ and in our own lives willing to take such a stand in these End Times? Of course, to take the correct stand, we MUST know what God’s Law is. We surely do not want to defy the “Laws of Man” needlessly because of our misunderstanding God’s will. Nor do we want to obey the “Laws of Man” blindly …being unaware when God would have us do otherwise. The same applies in areas other than law. For example; we may face social pressures to conform to popular worldly customs but NOT all common customs are unacceptable! It should not surprise us to discover that many customs popular in this world are far out of harmony with God’s will and plan! When we discern this to be the case, loyalty to God sets before us a choice …will we “go along to get along with the crowd,” …or will we stand for what is right in God’s eyes?
"All those desiring to live with godly devotion in association with Christ Jesus will be persecuted," - 2 Timothy 3:12. There is NO escaping it! As Bible believing Judeo-Christians it will mean being regarded as; peculiar, rejected, even despised, reviled, and hated, by the many godless people of the world. The world promotes; a self-centred, rebellious independent spirit without the God of Israel and the Bible. In contrast, if the Bible could be summed up in a single word, it would be obedience! “The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments. For this is the whole obligation of man.” - Ecclesiastes 12:13. But we see that obedience has a bad name in this world. And no wonder - considering today powerful godless leaders in governments that have demanded obedience in our time. We rightly condemn those who obeyed Hitler or Stalin (and so many others) for not having the moral strength to disobey or to resist …and say if only more had refused to obey then so many innocent lives would have been saved. Actually, if ALL people would stand up for what is right, such despots could not have come into power. However, God can and WILL even use wicked leaders to fulfil Bible Prophecy and to bring about the close of the “times of the Gentiles! “
How do we gain such moral courage? The answer is simple - obedience, to God. Whose law is highest? That of the Sovereign God of the universe YHVH – Jehovah, God. Whose law is “natural?” That of our Creator - God. What is “justice?” It is what is good, what is right! God laughs at the wicked plans of man! And, when He laughs it’s serious!
The Bible assures us as believers that we can be assured that no matter the what God is on our sides; “The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; BUT the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming. The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. BUT their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken. Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; for the power of the wicked WILL be broken, BUT the Lord upholds the righteous. The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care, and their inheritance will endure forever. In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty. BUT the wicked will perish: Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field, they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke. The wicked borrow and do not repay, BUT the righteous give generously, those the Lord blesses will inherit the land, BUT those he curses will be destroyed!” – Psalm 37:12-22.
As a noun, honour in the Bible means “esteem, value, or great respect.” To honour someone is to value him highly or bestow value upon him. The Bible exhorts us to express honour and esteem toward certain people: our parents, the aged, and those in authority (Ephesians 6:2; Leviticus 19:32; Romans 13:1). But we must understand that all authority and honour belong to God alone (1 Chronicles 29:11; 1 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 5:13). Though God can delegate His Authority to others - it still belongs to Him (Ephesians 4:11-12).
“The Lord loves justice” (Psalm 37:28) and He is good and His loyal love endures forever” (Psalm 100:5). The Lord is righteous and He loves righteous acts.” (Psalm 11:7) The Lord is the God of justice and will give us strength as nothing else can. The three young Hebrew boys; Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Babylon gave us an example of “courageous disobedience” as they were mindful of the 2nd of the 10 Commandments; “you must not bow before any graven image” and so they refused to give homage to an image of the State erected by the king. The penalty for this was to be death by fire. They did not know going into the “fiery furnace” that they would not die …but they stood firm anyway. The Lord saved them and the king had to honour the true God – of the Bible. (Read Daniel 3, with especial attention to verses 17-18, 24-25,28)
Does God have a master “blueprint for our generation?” Think on this; Is it possible that there exists a “blueprint” that lies behind the events taking place today in our modern world and originated in Ancient Times, 3,000 years ago …yet reveals the events of the 21st Century and is determining the course of our world and with it and the course of our lives too? With Ancient Prophecies now being fulfilled …it is possible that this “blueprint” foretells the rise and fall of modern leaders and governments! This is a “mystery” revealing NOT only the events of our modern world but also the timing of these events taking place which actually reveals the year and when an event is to take place …and in some cases pin-pointing us to the exact date or hour?
God has given us Israel as His “time-piece” and even a “template” of the Ancient Middle East which even foretells the outcome of a presidential election! All we need to do is watch the political climate of our day …and then we can clearly see everything is now falling into place “peace” by “piece!” We ask this question; could the Ancient Biblical Prophecy hold the “keys” and “mysteries” behind why rulers and leaders of our modern times have been chosen? And, are these world leaders allotted to remain on the national and world stage to fulfil Ancient Prophecies during these End-Times? Yeshua (Jesus) 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!
What are some of the “signs of End times?”
(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 Globalists One-World Government; Daniel 2:40-44; 7:23; Revelation 13:7-8.
(6) Technology is now capable of tracking the world’s population; Revelation 13:16-17.
(7) Israel re-gathered in 1948 into their nation after being dispersed for nearly 2,000 years; Isaiah 11:11-12; 43:5-6; 66:8; Jeremiah 31:7-10; Ezekiel 37:21-22; 38:8.
8) Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone to all nations; Zechariah 12:2-3.
(9) Israel prospering economically; Ezekiel 38:12-13.
10) Preparations to re-build the Temple in Jerusalem; Daniel 9:27; 12:11; Mark 13:14; Revelation 11:1-2.
(11) Russia, Iran, Turkey and Syria 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 flaunted; Luke 17:28-30; 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. (16) Babylon re-emerging on the world scene; Zechariah 5:11; Isaiah 13; Revelation 17-19.
(17) Increased interest in occult, witchcraft, and sorceries; Revelation 9:21; 18:23; 21:8; Isaiah 47:9-15; Micah 5:10-15.
(18) The kings of the East rising (China); Revelation 9:14-16; 16:12. There are many more Last Days’ signs that appear to be appearing before our very eyes. Therefore, ALL indications are that “delivery” must also be fast approaching as “birth pains” are getting very strong. Whether “time” is actually speeding up or not …the result of these “birth pangs” increasing, one thing is for sure is that the Bible is true and the Lord’s return is near – even at the door!
What would God’s Word reveal to us, or warn us of, concerning our future? When we read and study Scripture, we begin to see the pattern. The Lord knows that it takes only a few generations to completely turn away from Him and then we will just end up destroying ourselves, because it was the God's Law that was protecting us from oppression and sin in the first place. The significant events taking place today in America and around the word should leave NO doubt that God’s judgments are upon the whole world. God’s warnings come even through disaster and destruction. There is NO question that the man-made and natural disasters transpiring around us today is the work of something greater than the random acts of nature.
Did you know the word “lockdown“ is a prison term? The extreme lockdowns of 2020 due to Covid-19 from China causing nations all around the world to literally shut down!
At the same time while fighting the spread of the virus fires of apocalyptic size and strength blazed across different parts of the world in Australia, America, Israel, Lebanon, Syria including South Africa’s Farmlands mostly caused by wicked arsonists destroying not only the Eco Systems but many innocent animals burnt to their death. At the same time destructive hurricanes; Islamic terrorism; racial divide fuelled by Leftists for selfish political reasons to historic floods as well as world-wide non-stop social upheavals are just a few of the major signs that we’ve all seen in the past few months that indicate God’s long-delayed judgments are coming to this world.
If the Ancient Biblical prophets were alive today and saw what we are seeing, they would declare without equivocation that our world’s turmoil is a solemn warning to mankind to get right with God. They would admonish men and women everywhere to repent and to pray that in the midst of this period of “wrath” that God would “remember mercy” (Habakkuk 3:2). But let us not suppose that God is going to deal with us any differently than He has done with previous societies and civilizations. “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh.” - Jeremiah 32:37 - He is the God of all people, past and present and He will treat us all accordingly. When you think about it, our generation is even more guilty than were the Babylonians, the Amalekites and even the Sodomites. We are without excuse as we have the Word of God – the Bible and His Laws. The moral decline of our day has descended further than that of previous generations.
Today, in our time, Christians ARE facing an incomparable test …BUT when we as true believers in Yeshua (Jesus) come out of the “refiner’s fire” we will be refined as gold (1 Peter 1:7) and ready for God’s Holy Kingdom and Bride of Christ! A bride is somebody comparable to her Christ; “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct.” – 1 Peter 1:15. The Bride of Christ are those who will “shine with a brightness” …and a purity and a holiness just as He who called her is holy; “And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” – Revelation 19:8. The Bride of Christ makes herself ready for Him. Every second she has on this earth is used to prepare herself for her Bridegroom. Her fine linen is not something given to her during the marriage feast but it is something she has made herself during her time on earth by walking in righteousness!
When the Bride is ready to meet the Bridegroom, Yeshua - Jesus Christ WILL return to fetch His beloved… After so many years of tribulation in fact 2,000 years - they can finally be united! You see – in this world we WILL have Tribulation but we MUST be of good cheer as our Lord has overcome this world. All the heavens will rejoice in celebration of this event and there will be a tremendous marriage feast in heaven! (Revelation 19:7-8) Now finally the Bride can be with the Bridegroom as the long night is over! Now she has been perfected! She is perfectly united with her Lord in will, in purpose, in nature and never to be parted for all of eternity (1 Corinthians 6:17). They are standing there in heaven together with a throng of warriors and heroes that have gone before ALL dressed in pure white …an army that has paid the price and given everything to be cleansed and purified and transformed into Christ’s image. They are shining brighter than the sun, shining with purity equal to Christ Himself. They are holy and they are His! “And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” – Revelation 22:17.
The “heroes” of the Old Testament and the “martyrs” of the Great Tribulation, amongst others are of course servants of God and have fellowship with Christ whilst the Bride of Christ (the remnant true believers) has a very special calling as she is seated beside Him; she is equal with Him. She has suffered the same sufferings as He has on earth and now, she has her reward. It is a reward far greater than any given to anybody else in heaven or on earth. She is set above angels - above cherubim - above all of God’s creation, to be a partner and a helper to God’s very Son Himself. The Bride’s job in eternity will always be beside the Bridegroom. She is there beside Christ, drying tears, and erasing sorrows. There is NO greater reward than this. And there is NO greater use of our time on earth than to prepare for the day of His Coming, in earnest expectation. To be so in love with Yeshua (Jesus Christ) that the lives we live here on earth are worthy of the Bride He wants to marry!
Maranatha Lord – Come for your Bride – the Church!
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,
