>> I will be speaking at Cross Church in Northwest Arkansas on Sunday, Nov. 30th. Topic: “What Does The Future Hold? America, Israel & The Church In Light of Bible Prophecy.” Click here for more details, and please join us. The war on ISIS continues, but few analysts see the West prevailing with the current […]
Today is the deadline to end nuclear negotiations with Iran. Not surprisingly, the international community and Iran have not struck a deal. good, bad or otherwise. Now, another seven months has been added to the discussions. Also not surprising. Now we face several very serious questions. Is there any hope of ever concluding a solid, useful […]
On Wednesday, two Evangelical Christian leaders and I published an op-ed laying out criteria by which we — and many — Christians will be assessing 2016 presidential contenders. The following is an article by a Washington Post columnist who has reviewed the op-ed and found intriguing the high priority we place on carefully evaluating a candidate’s approach towards […]
12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name (Jesus) under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”--Jesus is Salvation. Only way to heaven. . . Best decision you will ever make.
It is amazing looking back at these 39 years God has put me on this earth. Looking back to my family, friends, and life I see God working in each moment of my life for such a time as this. I want you to look back at your life, and see how God has prepared you for this time in history. He has always given you the best, and will continue to bless you with His goodness, even in these difficult times.
I looked at prophecy when I was 17 wondering how long it would be for the Lord to come back. I was very mature for my age. I was called into the ministry, finished three degree programs, married, had children, currently working within education and ministry as well as in agriculture, and the world has changed as much as my life has. There was not 24 hour news and internet, no constant talk of the Temple Mount, the morality was much better than it is now, and the world was much slower back then. Families were together more when I was younger, and the world was simpler to understand.
The world community wants Israel to be the center of attention for the Fourth Geneva Convention coming up in mid-December. The issue is East Jerusalem and the territories. How the world has changed. It will not be long for the world to force its will on Israel’s hold of E. Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Only God knows when these events will happen. The center of prophecy is the Temple Mount, and in due time the Antichrist will walk into the Temple Mount to perform the abomination of desolation as the two witnesses of Revelation 11 will be preaching. We are there my friends, we are there. Time will tell, but you can sense it.
The weakening of the United States has allowed Europe to play an even more important role through internationalizing the Temple Mount issue. It is coming like birth pains. We are in a lull, but not for long. The birth pains are getting closer, and are stronger than they were when I was 17. Yes, the world will soon meet its Maker’s Son, and I am blessed to know my family serves the Lord.
I almost lost my daughter a couple of weeks ago with E coli. We are bringing her home in the next couple of days expecting full recovery. Events like this make you look back in life. I have a wonderful wife, children, and a church I pastor. God is good. Life is difficult, and life does not always go the way you want it to. That is ok, because I always know God has what is best for me and my family, even in the most difficult of circumstances. He has your best also.
The Israeli government is pressuring the EU Parliament to not vote down a Palestinian state.For now, the EU Parliament is pushing off the vote.However, in time I believe the EU Parliament will vote for a Palestinian state.If this happens, as I believe, it will push the Israeli government further to the right.The Israeli government is debating the status quo on the Temple Mount.There is an open fight in the Israeli government over the response to the status quo on the Temple Mount.It might take the 2 witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 to change the status quo.
Each day, the world is focused more on Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.The Old Testament prophets spoke of a time when this very scenario would happen.As the West weakens in the Middle East, and Iran strengthens, the prophecies of old will more likely to be fulfilled.The world will get worse, people will fall for the lie of the evil one, and all of our lives will become more difficult.We are in very difficult times, but take heart your Lord has defeated your difficult times.
Jesus is always with you.He told us these things before hand.Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and be thankful you live for a Lord that loves you very much.Violence, economic uncertainty, spiritual dryness, godlessness abounds in our society, but it does not have to bound in you.Be strong, courageous, faithful, and watch the Lord do a miraculous work in you.
I watched Prime Minister’s response to that Synagogue attack.He did not give a lot of details of the Israeli’s response because I believe the Prime Minister believes the religious war he has before him is extremely serious, and he is being extremely cautious.He knows the Palestinians are readying a UN Security Council vote on a timetable for an Israeli withdrawal, and the Palestinians believe an out of control Jerusalem will lead the world to see the holy city their way.If the Palestinians are successful in their UN vote with an American abstention, then there will be a cry so loud from the Jewish community to rebuild the Temple that it will shutter throughout the world.
I see the experts already saying the attack is the fault of both sides, and the Israelis must give up more land in order to keep people from acting so violently.That is falling in line with the prophets when God warned the world from dividing His land.The deception is great, my friends.I believe the world’s opinion of Israel is turning greatly against her, and President Obama will likely be successful sometime in the future to withdraw American support from Israel.Iran, the Palestinians, the UN vote, the withdrawal of Western influence in the Middle East are all connected together.The Palestinians want a vote by the end of November.They may hold it off if they believe the American President soon will be on their side.
We must pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and understand we are all a part of this battle.Our Lord will be victorious.It may not seem like it at times, but remember the victory was won on the Cross, and in the second coming Jesus will take His spoils.Come Lord Jesus.
Thank you for your prayers.My daughter is expected to make a full recovery.After being on dialysis and blood tranfusions for the past week, we are seeing this girl being healed by wonderful doctors and nurses at Kosair Children’s Hospital.God is good.
No matter what happens in life, prophecy continues to march forward.The battle over Jerusalem has begun, and the horrific terror attack on a Jewish synagogue will be a major event in this battle.The move for a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount is growing, and with the improved health of Rabbi Glick, you can sense the battle over the Temple Mount is next.The world is pressuring Israel not to respond to the terror attack.The disgusting lukewarmness the West has toward terror angers God.Jerusalem is surely the burden the prophets foretold thousands of years ago.
The EU Foreign Minister walked into the Middle East conflict with odd statements, and has become a mockery among the Jewish leadership.She may not last too long.Her start has been rough, and the EU may decide to get rid of her if the Middle East explodes.Remember the Antichrist comes up from the 10 Western European nations, for he is the 11th.Time will tell, but he seems to be lurking in the shadows.
Just as the Wise Men saw the sign of the coming of the Lord, we also see the signs.The star led the Wise Men to the holy land, and the news today leads us to that same land.God is pulling the world to the nation He chose to bring the Savior to this planet to save mankind thousands of years ago.Be at peace, He knows what He is doing, and He wants you to enjoy life to the fullest, even in the darkest of times.
