Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings, Precious children and warriors of the Most High. Yes, that's what you are, whether you feel like you are or not. Why? Because the fact that you are here reading this means you are one of the few believers actually watching for our Lord's return and are excited about it!  Which means you are probably a prayer warrior and in love with Jesus! 
Here's the latest and greatest of our sad world's condition. Don't let it alarm you!

Instead
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6

Things that stood out to me
  • Persecution against Christians is rising fast
  • The Gog-Magog coming war in the Middle East will soon be upon us
  • The Apostasy of our modern church is astounding
  • The horrific and senseless shooting in South Florida. (My family lives only miles from this school and my nephew knows one of the victims. My sister in law tells me the entire community is beyond distraught, horrified, and grieving. I grew up in this area and it has really hit me hard. This issue goes much deeper than gun control... this is spiritual issue in a war that we cannot see.. a war that is ramping up in the spirit realm. Please pray!)
And as I mentioned on Facebook, I keep hearing from officials and newscasters and police that they are praying for the families and victims. (Which is, of course, wonderful)  But didn't we take prayer out of school? Why is it acceptable to pray for them now, after the fact? Perhaps if we had kept prayer in school, we wouldn't have to pray for these victims at all because there wouldn't be any.

Does God Exist? Only God tells the future - Part 3



Daniel (God is my judge) was a great man of God who received dreams and visions from God and to whom God gave many interpretations. He was taken captive in 605 B.C. to Babylon where he spent the remainder of his life. Because of his youth, nobility, and good looks, he was trained to be a government official and wise man to Nebuchadnezzar.

In Daniel 2 we find one of Daniel's most amazing prophetic interpretations.  King Nebuchadnezzar had a troubled dream and none of his magicians and wise men could interpret it. He demanded that they not only interpret it, but that they tell him the dream also. When they couldn't, he ordered that ALL the wise men in his kingdom be executed. (That included Daniel). So Daniel prayed with his friends and asked to be brought before the king, where he both told the king his dream and interpreted it.

The king had dreamt about a tall statue made of different substances.  Head of gold, chest and arms of silver, middle and thighs of bronze, legs of iron, and feet made of iron and clay.  (The text is too long to post here, but I encourage you to read it for yourself in Daniel 2)

Interpretation and fulfillment


The statue represents Word Kingdoms from now until the end of time.

 Head of Gold represents the kingdom of Babylon  (612-539 BC)

The chest and arms of silver represent a kingdom that will come after Babylon 

Fulfillment: Medo-Persia 539-331 BC
Archaeologists have pinpointed October 29, 539 BC has the date that Babylon fell to Medo Persia. The kingdom of Medo Persia was a dual kingdom, but Cyrus of Persia welded the elements of the two kingdoms together. The two arms of the image with us a fitting symbol for this power.  Medo Persia was represented by Silver just has silver was used for personal dormant by Persian warriors and was also the metal of their monetary system.

The belly and upper thighs are made of bronze which represent a third kingdom that will rise up to rule over the earth (the known world)

Fulfillment: Greece 331-168 BC
Greece was the Macedonian or Hellenistic empire of Alexander the great and his successors. Alexander defeated Persia at the battles of Granicus 334 BC Isus 333 BC and Arbela 331 BC. Bronze was used in Hellenistic Body Armor, battleaxes, and spear tips.

The iron legs represent a fourth kingdom

And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others Daniel 2:40

Fulfillment: Rome 168 BC-476 AD  OR Islamic Caliphate?
Upon Alexander's death, his generals divided the empire among themselves. This divided Empire then fell prey to the Romans who defeated the Greeks at the battle of  Pydna in 168 BC and thus arose as the fourth kingdom strong as iron.

There is some dispute regarding this 4th kingdom. God's main emphasis throughout history has been with the Middle East and all the nations surrounding Israel. All the empires of Babylon, Persia, and Greece were empires of the Middle East region. Rome never conquered all the middle east. But another kingdom rose that did. The rule of the Caliphs or the Islamic Caliphate. Here's a map showing the area they conquered

The Islamic Caliphs ruled from the 7th century all the way until the early 1900's. Amazing. Why is this not considered by most theologians to be the fourth kingdom?

But the point is, there's no way Daniel or anyone at the time of Nebuchadnezzar's dream could know what kingdoms were coming in the future!  Only God knows the future and that is exactly what Daniel told the king.

Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, “The secret which the king has demanded, the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot declare to the king. But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days Daniel 2:27-28

Most scholars agree that the book of Daniel was written by Daniel in 537 BC.  If you wish to dig deeper into proof of when it was written, there's tons of stuff online. Here's one such site

But wait! There's one more part of the statue that has YET to be fulfilled. The feet with toes made with iron and clay

Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.  And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. Daniel 2:41-42

This is a coming FIFTH kingdom which will be the Kingdom of the Antichrist. If you wish to know more about that kingdom and its ten kings, read Daniel 7 and Revelation 17.  The good news is that this Kingdom will not last long. (In fact, only 7 years)

You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.  Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.!  Daniel 2:34-35

The Stone cut without hands is our Lord Jesus, the cornerstone that the builders rejected. And He crushes all the other kingdoms and blows them away!


Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes’? Matthew 21:42

Jesus will usher in the FINAL kingdom on earth where HE will rule and reign from Jerusalem! 

For He is the living God, And steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end.  Daniel 6:26

I believe we are very close to the fulfillment of this fifth kingdom appearing. Which means we are very close to God's Kingdom ruling on earth. I, for one, am very excited!

Friday's Mad Mad World!


Greetings Precious Children of the Most High!  Another crazy crazy week of insanity. Even though I know most of this is coming, I still shake my head. Every day I feel more and more like an alien on this earth. Come, Lord Jesus!

Things that stood out to me this week.
  • Atheism has doubled among this new generation. Where is the church? What have we been doing?
  • Atheist are on the move, kicking Christian speakers off campuses, causing trouble for teachers, commentators or anyone who believes in Jesus. (this will get worse)
  • Did you know that even if your phone is in Airplane mode, Google can track your every move? Big Brother is already here
  • Having God be referenced as a male isn't politically correct, it seems. Huh?

On a political note, I'm extremely saddened by what is being revealed daily in the U.S. regarding corruption at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ. I believe our republic and our constitution are being threatened like never before. I'm also saddened that the majority of the media is not even reporting the truth of what is going on. This is far worse than the actual illegal events. If we can't trust our media, how can we find out the truth? Talk about deception!  Jesus warned us about deception in the last days, and here we are. Please don't believe everything you hear. Check a variety of news sources and find out the truth for yourself. We are in the middle of the biggest governmental corruption case we've ever had in this country. It makes Watergate look like child's play. I don't care if you're a democrat or a republican, this should scare you to death.

Ever feel like you're a small shepherd boy facing a giant?  Listen to what one small shepherd boy said to his giant. Why don't you say outloud the same thing to your giant?

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand."

 1 Samuel 17:46

Does God Exist? Only God tells the Future, Part 2




Remember the former things of old,  For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’ Isaiah 46:9-10 

I'm continuing my series on Biblical prophecy. If you missed last week's post, you can either scroll down on the main page to find it, or click on "Articles of Christianity" at the top of the main page. To recap my reasons for doing this, Prophecy is most often ignored in modern day churches, yet it is so important for a number of reasons. One, the fulfillment of countless prophecies in the Bible prove that God exists and that He knows the past from the future.  Another reason is that we can learn what is to come by studying prophecies that have not yet been fulfilled. And thirdly and most importantly, many people come to know the Lord when they realize through prophecy that He exists and He loves them. 

Last week, I talked about the Ezekiel 36-37 prophecies about Israel becoming a nation after 1800 years. Today, I'm going to list two very important prophecies that I think are pretty interesting. I hope you enjoy them and they get you to thinking!

The rebuilding of the city of Jericho


You may remember from reading the Old Testament that the first city the Israelites conquered after they entered the promised land of Israel (After Moses led them out of Egypt where they'd been slaves for 400 years) was Jericho.

Even if you're not familiar with the Bible, it's a famous story you've no doubt heard. The God we serve is an incredible God in so many ways, but in this instance, He's just plain interesting and surprising. He never does things as you would expect. When He told Joshua to conquer the city of Jericho, what were His instructions? To march around the city for 6 days with the priests in the front of the line with 7 trumpets and the Ark of the Covenant, and then on the 7th day, to march around the city 7 times and then the priests blow the trumpets and the people shout and the walls of the city will fall outward. Oh, sure. That's what I would have suggested.

Most scholars agree that the book of Joshua was written around 1380 B.C. Joshua was a very Godly man who heard from the Lord regularly. This is what he said after Jericho was destroyed.

 Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, “Cursed be the man before the Lord who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates.” Joshua 6:26

Now, he's a mere man, so we must assume that he got this information from God.

Here's the fulfillment
 King Ahab in 1 Kings 16:34 ordered a man named Hiel to rebuild Jericho. When Hiel laid the foundation, his oldest son Abiram died.  Then when he set up the city gates, his youngest son Segub died.

Most scholars place the writing of 1 Kings at around 560 and 540 B.C  and the writer to be Jeremiah. Did Jeremiah know about the prophecy against the person who rebuilt Jericho ? Possibly, but unless he killed Hiel's sons just to fulfill it, he couldn't have made it come true. If not, why even mention it?

Another interesting note about Jericho is that when archeologists excavated it, they found that the walls had fallen outward. That's a very very odd thing to happen. Usually when a city is attacked, it's walls would fall inward as the enemy army advanced.  Just saying...

The Eastern Gate of Jerusalem will be shut until Jesus' second coming.


Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the Lord said to me, “This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut. Ezekiel 44:1-2

The Eastern gate is one of 11 gates surrounding the Temple mount in Jerusalem. It is also called The Golden Gate.  The very interesting thing is that Jesus entered Jerusalem through this gate which faces the Mount of Olives. (Note that Ezekiel was told that God Himself would enter through that gate)

The gate itself, along with all of the Temple Mount area was destroyed by Rome in 70 AD, but the Ottomon Turks rebuilt the city and the walls and gate in the 6th century. But here it gets really interesting.  In the year 1541, the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman I sealed the Eastern Gate. Historians disagree as to why he did this, but legend abound that, learning of the prophecies which predicted the Messiah’s entrance through the Eastern Gate, Suleiman tried his best to make sure it wouldn’t happen during his reign. And just in case a sealed entrance didn’t thwart the Messiah’s coming, Muslims built a cemetery directly in front of the gate – conventional wisdom being that a Jewish Holy man would never defile himself by walking through a Muslim cemetery

The Eastern gate is presently considered by the Arabs to be their exclusive property. It is sealed up and blocked off, thus fulfilling the prophecy in Ezekiel to the letter. However one day, the Messiah will land on the Mount of Olives, with all His saints, and walk down to and right through the Eastern Gate and into the Temple area!  I can't wait! 


Pretty cool, eh?

Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings Precious children of the Most High!  Here we go again!  More crazy headlines you won't see on mainstream news. For instance, did you know that our Congress voted NO on banning abortions after 20 weeks?  I had to look it up to find out what happened. That's a baby who is 5 months old in the womb.  This is a picture of a 20 week old fetus

Are you serious? Who would not ban murdering this innocent child? I'm enraged.

Anyway, other things that stood out to me.

  • The earth is groaning and moaning, folks.  I've never seen the likes of it in my lifetime.
  • Also, thousands of Iranians and Indians coming to Christ! Check it out in the Good news section.   The light grows alongside the dark!
