Friday's Mad Mad World!


Blessings Brothers and Sisters. Things are heating up! Literally, with all the volcanic action across the world.  But also on the Israeli/Syrian border and with Gaza. There's going to be a huge war in the middle east as many nations gang up on Israel. Read Ezekiel 39. That war is nearly upon us. I've heard one pastor say that the war described in Ezekiel 39 will trigger the rise of the Antichrist who will sweep on the scene and make a 7 year peace deal with Israel. Why? Because Israel (with God's help) is going to whoop some major behind in that war. They are going to be extremely victorious and the world will be begging for a peace deal with them.  That's when those of us who cling to Jesus for our salvation and live for Him will be scooped up to heaven for the Marriage Feast of the Lamb. That's why it's important to keep your eye on what's happening in the Middle East.


Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. Isaiah 26:20

Aside from that... lots of crazy things... I'll let you see for yourself below.

Longest Blood Moon connects with Israel holidays!


There are some very interesting dates and events coming up that I thought I should tell you about. I'm not setting a date for the rapture. I'm merely pointing at some interesting signs. Honestly, I don't think we will know the exact day or hour, but I do believe that when it happens, those of us who are watching will not be surprised.

Having said that, there's a rare blood moon occurring on July 27th. What is a blood moon?  A blood moon is simply when the moon is in full eclipse and hence, completely in the earth's shadow. When that happens, some of the light from the sunrise and sunset on earth (around the edge of the disc) passes through the atmosphere and shines on the moon, making it appear red.  It's not a rare event, however, having a tetrad of them fall on Jewish feast days as they did in 2014 and 2015 was quite rare.


 Regardless, we have another one happening this month. The interesting thing is it is the longest lunar eclipse in a century AND it will be seen from Israel.

But there are also some Jewish historic dates around this time that you may find interesting.

The 9th of Av  - this falls on July 21-22 this year. What is so special about the 9th of Av? Ask any Jewish person and they'll tell you that on this day their first temple was destroyed by Babylon in 607 BC AND also on the 9th of Av their 2nd temple was destroyed by Rome in 70AD.  Coincidence? Hmm. I don't think so.

Who is the current temple of God? We are. Believers in Jesus. Food for thought.

There's another interesting Jewish holiday this month that falls on the 15th of Av, July 27th. The holiday is called Tu B'Av.  This is the Jewish day of love comparable to our Valentine's Day.
According to myjewishlearning.com,

Tu B'Av served as a matchmaking day for unmarried women in the Second Temple period (before the fall of Jerusalem in 70 C.E.). Tu B’Av was almost unnoticed in the Jewish calendar for many centuries but it has been rejuvenated in recent decades, especially in the modern state of Israel.
There were no better (i.e. happier) days for the people of Israel than the Fifteenth of Av and Yom Kippur, since on these days the daughters of Israel/Jerusalem go out dressed in white and dance in the vineyards. What were they saying: Young man, consider whom you choose (to be your wife)

What caught my eye on this were the women dressed in white and the young men choosing who would be his wife. We are the bride of Christ, whom He chose to be His, and we are often described as being dressed in white.

I had never heard of this holiday, but found it fascinating. I hope you do too!
Also, as a reminder, we are in the 70th year of Israel becoming a nation. As I mentioned in a previous post, Psalm 90:10 declares a generation to be 70, maybe 80.

Jesus, Himself, said,

Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 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 Matt 24:32-33

Another interesting parallel is that the second temple was destroyed in 70 AD

And finally, do not let it escape your notice that Jesus said "summer".  Nothing in the Bible is there by chance. Summer is the time of the wheat harvest in Israel, and Jesus often referred to believers as wheat (false believers as tares) and the rapture as a harvest.  One such example is in Matt 13.  I encourage you to read the entire chapter.

Don't grow weary in waiting and watching!  The King is coming!

Friday's Mad Mad World!


Greetings precious ones!  Can you believe what's happening in the world? Every day I scratch my head. Look at how the earth is groaning!

For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now......as we wait eagerly for [the sign of] our adoption as sons—the redemption and transformation of our body. Romans 8:23

Check out the Christian persecution! Do you know that as you are reading this hundreds of Christians are being slaughtered in Nigeria?  I couldn't find the right article to post here, but war between Israel and Syria is on the brink. One third of this new generation say they are not heterosexual. One third! What are they doing to our kids? 

Time is short. As Pastor Hagee says, Pray up, pack up, look up!  We are only strangers here on earth. Our most important task is to believe in Jesus and follow Him. Our second task is to lead others to Him as well. Aside from that, we are just passing through, ambassadors and aliens in a world run by our enemy.  Keep up the faith. Keep up your hope and joy. The joy of the Lord is your strength!

Have a great weekend!

Matthew 5:14

Want to hear from God about the big things?



Do you ever wonder why God is sometimes silent? You ask Him for help with a certain situation, or perhaps you ask Him which job you should take, who to marry, or just wisdom for a situation in which you feel lost. Perhaps you're even asking Him for a job itself, more money, healing, a marriage partner, a child... whatever it may be, but months go by and you hear nothing. You may even begin to wonder if God is even there or does He care?

Yet you've heard from God before....you remember moments of great joy when His voice welled up inside of  you, giving you direction or simply pouring His love and peace upon you. So, where is he now?  The next few weeks, I'm going to share some personal things that have happened to me recently in which I've learned a bit about how God works. My hope is that it will help you as well!

“He who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much." Luke 16:10

Recently I was asking the Lord why He wasn't answering a question I've been asking Him for quite a while now, and He instantly brought to my mind two things.  Amazon and Eating. It took me a minute before I realized what He was referring to. You see, I have an Amazon problem. I order way too many things! I admit it. Mostly, I order toys and clothes for my grandkids, whom I love to spoil. But it's so easy. You go on there, do some searches, find some cool stuff and just click!  It magically arrives on my front porch in 2 days!  My husband makes fun of me because nearly everyday I get a package. It's like Christmas every day!  But the past 6 months or so, I've been hearing this voice... more like a perception inside of me saying "You spend too much money. You order too many things you don't need. It's become an obsession."  But I shrugged off the voice, thinking it was just a stupid thought. After all, I work hard, so I deserve to have fun, right?

Secondly, I love to eat. Who doesn't, right? I don't eat much during the day when I'm busy, but at night I always fix a good-sized meal for me and hubby, and I usually eat more than I should. Can I admit that to you and not have you condemn me?  I wouldn't say I'm a glutton and I'm not overweight, but I definitely overdo it. Lately, I've been hearing once again a voice inside saying, "You don't need that second helping!" UGH! Really?  But I ignored it. 

So, now, when the Lord brought those things to mind, I suddenly realized that was Him giving me direction on my overspending and overeating. When I realized it, I immediately repented and have since stopped doing both. (HARD!)  But I believe what the Lord was saying to me was "Why should I answer a bigger request when you don't listen to me in the small things?"  And my mind went directly to the Scripture above and also to this one below. 

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little, I will put you in charge of many things; share in the joy of your master Matt 25:23

I believe the Lord is intimately involved in every detail of our lives. He cares what we eat, where we go, what we watch, listen to, who we see, etc. He even cares where we spend our money. All these things have an effect on our lives. When we make Jesus Lord of our lives, that means we obey Him in everything, not just that we are going to heaven when we die. He knows what's best for us, and along the way in our lives, He's trying to get us to listen and obey. Not because He's some tyrant, but because He wants the best for us.  Let me give you a few examples.

This young girl wants to marry this guy she's madly in love with, yet through their relationship, she gets a nagging feeling he isn't right for her. She ignores it, marries him, and is miserable the rest of her days.

A young man loves to eat junk food and sweets. For years the Lord constantly tells him to avoid or limit these types of food. He ignores that inner voice and becomes addicted to sugar. 20 years later he dies of cancer and heart disease.  

A woman loves to shop. She goes to the mall every weekend and buys new shoes and clothing. The Lord urges her to stop and be content with what she has and instead give that money to the poor. She ignores the voice and ends up getting so far into debt, she loses her home. 

These may sound like drastic examples, but they are all true. The Lord is patient and He will speak to you for years on a certain topic, trying to get your attention. Yet, if you continue to ignore Him, He'll leave you to the consequences. 

The main point I want to make is that if you want to hear from God, go back to the last thing He told you and obey Him. He's not going to give you further advice and guidance if you haven't even listened to Him on the small things. Once you start to obey Him in the small things, He will give you bigger things and lead you into more and more knowledge and revelation.  And believe me, it will be SO worth it! 

Next week, a spiritual battle I've been having with fear. Until then..... God Bless you and yours!
